SALEM, Oregon - Mats Järlström is, by all accounts, an engineer. He graduated from engineering school in Sweden, served as an airplane-camera mechanic in the Swedish Air Force and worked in research and development at an electronics manufacturer. For the past 20 years, he has earned a living designing and repairing audio equipment. Järlström was inspired by a $150 ticket his wife received in the mail in May after driving through an intersection with a red-light camera in Beaverton. His research showed that the mathematical formula used in the timing of yellow lights was outdated and unfair to drivers. He knew the charge was ridiculous, inept, nothing more than an attempted punishment for telling the truth and exposing Oregon officials with their bias and ignorance. While not a “licensed professional” in the state of Oregon, Järlström has a brain and a sense of justice. He knew in his own mind that not only was the law wrong but he thought he could prove it. There is no doubt that Oregon officials conspired to cheat Järlström by making a false accusation against him. That's where the officials made their second mistake. The reason this all came to a head is that Järlström ...

SAKEM, Oregon - Oregon continues to be one of the lowest ranking graduation rankings in the United States, unchanged from the previous year. It ranked No. 47 for two years before that, but sank a notch when Alaska raised its success rate. The only states that still have lower rates than Oregon are Nevada and New Mexico. Both states registered more year over year improvement at getting students to earn diplomas than Oregon did Oregon has occupied this position for several years. The Oregon Education Association, the statewide teachers' union, says the problem is money. "Our students are continuing to pay the price for our inadequate funding of public education," OEA President John Larson said in a statement.

Larson may be right: according to NCES statistics for 2013-14 (table 5), Oregon spent about 10 percent less per pupil than the national average, although the number for that year $9,959, was still more than in 21 other states. ...
