PORTLAND, Oregon — Scientists from Oregon State University scientists are saying that Mount St. Helens is out of line with other major volcanoes on the Cascade Range. University geophysicist Adam Schultz believes a giant subsurface rock formation diverted magma, causing Mount St. Helens to form west of the Cascadia Arc. "It seems like what we call the Spirit Lake batholith is probably the reason why Mount St. Helens actually pops up far to the west of where you would anticipate it to be," Schultz said. Researchers put together different imaging studies to gain a better understanding to what may be below the surface of the volcano. They compared older studies what show certain structure, density and temperature — with newer ones that show subsurface electrical conductivity. This report will be published this week in "Nature Geoscience." "Either method by itself can lead to a level of uncertainty, but when you layer them together as we have done in this project you get a much clearer picture of what lies below," Schultz said. Mount St. Helens formed because of the Juan de Fuca plate off the coast of Washington and Oregon went under the North America plate. The plate ...

It’s no secret that Oregon is growing far more marijuana than the market can absorb, so some cultivators are turning to MJ’s cousin: hemp. As Oregon cannabis prices continue to sink to new lows amid a product glut, outdoor growers are applying what they know about marijuana and cultivating hemp for both smokable CBD flower and biomass that can be extracted into CBD oil. The hemp pivot allows growers to diversify their revenue stream and capitalize on a crop that could soon become legal at the federal level – thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill pending before Congress. It also allows them to capitalize on the booming popularity of CBD products. Here are four reasons a shift toward hemp makes sense for some businesses – and why it should be done cautiously: 1. Adding hemp allows companies to diversify their operations while still growing marijuana. Under a Tier 2 license in Oregon, most MJ farmers are limited to – at most – a 40,000-square-foot (just under 1-acre) grow. But hemp doesn’t face the same restrictions, so many growers have planted 3 or more acres of the plant. “If you have a farm this year that’s designed to grow cannabis and you can’t sell any of the ca ...

ESTACADA, Oregon — An injured horse found wandering alone in a northeastern Oregon wilderness has been rescued. KATU-TV reports that the 8-year-old horse named Sandy was led out of the Wallowa Mountains last week and is recovering at the Eagle Fern Equine Hospital in Estacada. She's in the care of the horse rescue group Sound Equine Options and is scheduled for surgery at Oregon State University on Tuesday. The horse had an injured left back leg but was led out after veterinarians said the 6-mile (10-kilometer) trip would be safe after giving her painkillers. It's not clear who owns Sandy or how she sustained the injuries. "We're guessing she fell down a cliff or on rocks," said Kim Mosiman, the executive director of Sound Equine Options. A U.S. Forest Service lookout on Mule Peak, Brian Sather, spotted the horse several weeks ago. He called for help after spotting her again a week later and went to check on her. "We got up close to her, and we could see that her leg was very injured," Sather said. "It was an open wound, and she was limping on it. And she had some other wounds on her too." He started making calls and eventually found Sound Equine Options. He ...

In a bid to stem the flow of marijuana product to the black market, Oregon regulators have ordered a steep cut over the next six months in the amount of cannabis that medical MJ patients can buy on a daily basis. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) last Thursday reduced purchasing limits for Medical Marijuana Program cardholders to 1 ounce of cannabis per day, down from the previous limit of 24 ounces per day. The rules took effect Aug. 24 and expire in six months. The change comes as the OLCC faces increased pressure to react to the state’s oversupplied cannabis sector, including greater scrutiny from the state’s U.S. attorney, Billy Williams, who has tied the oversupply situation to the diversion of marijuana to the black market.

According to a news release, the “action on OMMP purchase limits is designed to prevent potential diversion of usable marijuana into the secondary illegal mark ...

DAYTON, Oregon - A body believed to be a missing 27-year-old woman was found Thursday morning north of Dayton. “Based on the physical descriptors and clothing, the body appears to be that of Meighan Cordie,” Yamhill County authorities said in a statement.

Oregon has become the first state in the U.S. to allow timber buildings to rise higher than six stories without special consideration. The recent addendum to the state's building code is the result of Oregon’s statewide alternate method (SAM), a program that allows for alternate building techniques to be used after an advisory council has approved the “technical and scientific facts of the proposed alternate method.” The decision stands as a precedent for future construction across the United States. In April this year, an Ad Hoc Committee of the International Code Council presented their findings on timber high rise construction to the Oregon Codes Division. The committee was created in 2015 to explore the benefits and challenges of using timber in tall buildings. All 14 of the committee’s suggestions were adopted, including standards and best practices for the load-bearing potential of CLT and heavy timber, fireproofing, seismic rating, and more. Three new building classifications were introduced: Type IV A, timber buildings permitted up to 18 stories and 270 feet tall, Type IV B, timber buildings with a maximum height of 12 stories and 180 feet, and Type IV C, which is per ...

For the middle of September most experts are predicting hot, dry and smoky weather for the Pacific Northwest. The hot and dry conditions should continue well into autumn, with a heavy drought increasing each day. Nearly 70 percent of Oregon is now in "severe drought," with parts of Southern Oregon lapsing into “exceptional drought,” according to the U.S. Drought Monitor report issued Thursday. “It’s not looking good,” National Weather Service meteorologist Laurel McCoy said. “It doesn’t mean we won’t get any rain once we get into fall, but chances are it’s going to be less than normal.” The historically dry conditions mean the eight large wildfires currently burning across Oregon could continue spewing smoke into October — and new fires could still ignite. The report on the likely weather in September and October is released by the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center. ...
