What in the World? Today's News 

Good morning! It's the first of many freezing cold Friday mornings here in Central Oregon. We hope you're enjoying the snow! Here's what's happening in our neighborhood and around the world.

Sad news first...Nelson Mandela, former South African president, an icon for peaceful resistance and the major figure in the struggle against apartheid, died yesterday at age 95. Read more about his legacy here.

Pope Francis has been making headlines for his deviation from tradition. Yesterday, for assembling a panel of experts to advise him on preventing sex abuse in the clergy. Earlier this week, rumors had been circulating that the Pope has been sneaking out of the Vatican, removing his trademark white robe and dressing as a normal priest so he can walk the streets of Rome and help the homeless. He also admitted yesterday that he worked as a bouncer in a Buenos Aires Nightclub when he was a student. That's it, we're saying it...COOLEST POPE EVER.
