A Portland, Oregon woman came home Monday night to find an intruder in her house. So she did the logical thing and called 911.
Little did she know, the intruder had beaten her to the punch.
Worried the returning homeowner would shoot him, Timothy James Chapek -- who had just helped himself to a shower in the bathroom -- had already dialed 911, admitting he had broken into the house, and requesting help from the emergency service.
When help did arrive, police arrested the 24-year old Chapek for trespassing. Read on to hear both calls.
Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday," a reference to the binge eating a lot of Catholics do before Lent. As is often the case with holidays, the Christian roots are intertwined with earlier pagan practices. It was very common for early church fathers to integrate elements of pagan ritual in an attempt to attract potential converts.
Mardi Gras itself originated in the Middle Ages and was brought to the U.S. by the French explorer Iberville. In 1827, Parisian-style masked balls were legalized in New Orleans after a long period of prohibition. The celebration soon became known for its celebrants' raucous behavior during fanciful parades.

Follow a family's story of love and possibility as you learn how Dwight comes to find his zest for life.
