Monday Memo: Skateboarder hit-and-run … More sun to come … Mars Hill chronicles

We’re keeping an eye on the teen skateboarder who was struck by a teen driver yesterday. The driver took off after the accident. The skateboarder was seriously injured.

Weather: Cooler and cloudy today and tomorrow, but sunny the rest of the week.  Sun in September is nice. National Weather Service forecast

Missing hiker: No clues found in the search for the missing hiker in Olympic National Park. The 64-year-old Bainbridge Island man didn’t turn up last Thursday when his hike was supposed to have ended.

Things aren’t looking good for the once burgeoning Mars Hill Church:  It has fallen on hard financial times, and there’s turmoil in the upper ranks. Not to mention membership is down of late. As a result, some branches are consolidating, some are closing, staff is being cut and founder Mark Driscoll has stepped down for six weeks while accusations against him are investigated.  The accusations include bullying and verbally abusing many people he oversees behind the scenes, and being evasive in the face of criticism.
