Just before noon today, 911 callers reported a column of smoke coming from a field along SW Shaeffer Road near the W Road intersection in West Linn. Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue firefighters arrived to find active fire covering more than three acres with potential to spread into nearby trees. Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the blaze before it reached the trees and burned nearly four acres. In addition to hot temperatures, firefighters had to contend with an active yellow jacket nest in the area. The homeowner explained that he had ignited a mixture of gasoline and oil to eradicate a yellow jacket nest and, shortly after ignition, winds quickly spread the fire and he was unable to contain it. TVF&R Fire Marshal Steve Forster said, “Because of the nature of our work, we uniquely, understand the incredible speed at which fire can spread, but I believe most people are unaware of the potential destruction fire can cause. When dry vegetation, low humidity, and hot temperatures are added to the mix, we have conditions for extreme fire behavior. This can cause a small spark to become a big problem.” Wildfire can happen here. This is a week in which extreme cautio ...

PORTLAND, Oregon — On Sunday, Portland police were accused excessive force against protesters at a rally by extreme-right demonstrators. It was reported that some of the demonstrators were injured by police. This prompted the city's new police chief to order a review of officers' use of force. Police in riot gear tried to keep the two groups apart, many of whom had come on Saturday dressed for battle in helmets and protective clothing. Dozens of the extreme-right protesters were bussed to Portland, one of America's most liberal cities, from nearby Vancouver, Washington. Saturday's clashes were the most recent of several this year in the city as right-wing militants converged, met by counter-protesters, including members of anti-fascist, or "antifa," groups. City officials have struggled with striking a balance between free speech and keeping events from spiraling out of control. But on Saturday, some said police seemed to act mostly against those protesting the presence of the extreme-right demonstrators, using stun grenades and what appeared to be rubber bullets against them. Police "targeted Portland residents peacefully counter-protesting against racist far-right gr ...
