PORTLAND, Oregon - Six were injured and thirteen arrested as more than 1,200 right-wing demonstrators and counterprotesters descended on downtown Portland on Saturday. 13 were arrested and at least one person was taken to the hospital with injuries. Police removed knives, shields and stun guns. Mayor Ted Wheeler said he is pleased that police were able to keep the city safe while also helping to "protect the core American value of free speech." Police said none of the injuries were caused by officers. There was one incident where police deployed pepper balls, authorities said. Ahead of Saturday's rallies, Wheeler issued a video message stating, "if you're planning on coming here on Aug. 17 with the intent to commit violence, we don't want you here." Jessyca Jones, a counterprotester who was on the streets on Saturday, said the environment was "tense" and that there had been "lots of fights." At around 4:30 p.m. local time, and the Portland Police tweeted, "Police are having plastic water bottles thrown at them as they are making an arrest on SW Yamhill and Park."

BEAVERTON, Oregon - Just after 4:30p.m. this afternoon, callers to 9-1-1 reported smoke and flames coming from a neighbor’s two-story home in the 40 block of SW 150th Avenue in Beaverton. While waiting for emergency responders to arrive at the scene, neighbors retrieved one dog from the back yard of the burning home and provided it with safe shelter nearby. Firefighters arrived in less than five minutes of being dispatched and confirmed that the front of the home was engulfed in flames. They began an aggressive fire attack from outside the home before moving inside to conduct a search. After two searches, they confirmed that the home was unoccupied. They continued to fight the fire and worked for an hour to control the blaze. Firefighters contended with several obstacles during this fire, including: excessive outside temperatures, a live downed power line, a partially collapsed roof and excessive belongings inside the home. The incident commander frequently rotated crews so they could restock air bottles and cool down. Two firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion. ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Police in Portland are getting ready to control clashes between out-of-state far-right groups who are planning a rally in Portland, and the locals who are against their far right views and anti-fascists ideas. The America's culture wars continue. Saturday's rally — and the violence it may bring — are a relatively new reality here, as an informal coalition of white nationalists, white supremacists and extreme-right militias hones its focus on Oregon's largest city as a stand-in for everything it feels is wrong with the U.S. At the top of that list are the masked and black-clad anti-fascists who turn out to violently oppose right-wing demonstrators as soon as they set foot in town. "It's Portlandia, and in the public mind it represents everything these (far-right) groups are against," said Heidi Beirich, director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups. "It's progressive, and even more offensive to them, it's progressive white people who should be on these guys' side." The groups know they will get a headline-grabbing reaction from Portland's so-called "antifa," whose members have issued an online call to th ...

Something was nagging at William Hawley, and it was more about what was missing than what was there. As a Ph.D. student at the University of California, Berkeley, Hawley is fascinated with the geologic complexities of the Cascadia subduction zone, a giant fault off the coast of the Pacific Northwest. There, the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate plunges under the North American plate, building strain throughout the region and prompting fears of the massive earthquake that could strike when it releases. Hawley, however, was distracted by a peculiar region below central Oregon where it appears that a chunk of the Juan de Fuca plate is missing. He wasn’t the first to notice this gap, but it nagged at the back of his brain. Such a feature must be affecting the surface—and he wanted to know how. Now, he might finally have an answer. In a study recently published in Geophysical Research Letters, Hawley and his coauthor Richard Allen suggest that the missing piece is not just a hole, but a tear that’s slowly splitting the plate apart at least 93 miles beneath the surface. “I know that this seems like this little tear is a long way down,” Hawley says. But the presence of such a feat ...

SHERWOOD, Oregon - At 2 p.m. this afternoon, multiple calls to 911 came in regarding a fully engulfed barn that was also beginning to collapse at a farm on Wilsonville Road near Edminston Road. As firefighters from Kinsman Road Station 52 left their fire station to head to the location, they could see a large column of smoke coming from the vicinity of the reported fire. The battalion chief assigned to the incident immediately upgraded the fire to a first alarm to ensure adequate resources were sent to the scene. When the crew arrived, they found a collapsed pole barn that was fully engulfed in flames with several similar structures directly adjacent to it that had not caught fire yet. Firefighters immediately began aggressive fire attack methods as additional resources arrived on scene. Due to the rural location and lack of fire hydrants, water had to be shuttled to the scene by multiple water tenders, which also required temporarily closing Wilsonville Road to prevent any delay in operations. Firefighters battled the fire for approximately 45 minutes, by ground and through aerial operations. The pole barn’s contents were hay, which greatly fueled the fire making it ch ...

But even she seems to be ignored by her own company, Vietnam Airlines. Is Vietnam Airlines inept, a cold and unfriendly carrier? The war is over. USA lost.

Bud tenders help customers at Serra, a dispensary in Portland, Oregon. This year Oregon enacted legislation intended to address the surplus of marijuana in the state. Richard Vogel/The Associated Press Five years after Oregon legalized recreational marijuana, its lawmakers now are trying to rein in production, fearing the state’s big weed surplus will tempt some licensed businesses to sell their products out of state or on the illegal market. Such diversions could invite a crackdown from the federal government and cast a pall over the legal pot industry. Last year, the U.S. attorney for the District of Oregon put the state on notice when he announced that curbing interstate trafficking was his top cannabis law enforcement priority. Licensed growers have spent thousands of dollars on compliance and don’t want to risk their businesses by selling illegally, said Michael Getlin, founder of a 15,000-square-foot cannabis farm in Oregon City. “The flip side of that is, I get cold calls all the time from people out of state looking to go shopping,” he said — often offering two or three times market price in Oregon. Oregon’s surplus, though legal, is something of a cautionary ta ...

The Oregon Country Fair is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Better known to insiders simply as Fair, it’s a close cousin of Burning Man and widely considered the grandfather of all summer arts festivals. If you’ve never been, now is the time to go. Forged out of the back-to-the-land movement, early Grateful Dead shows, and collectives like Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters, the Oregon Country Fair has become a multi-generational, cultural phenomenon filled with whimsy, absurd, and old-timey arts, dance, and music. It’s a rabbit-hole for the free-spirited and an important part of U.S. summer festival history. And while many people—even some seasoned festivalgoers—may have never heard of it, every summer during the second week in July, 45,000 people descend on Veneta, Oregon—effectively raising the tiny town’s population by some 800 percent. As a twenty-time fair attendee and performer, I consider the Oregon Country Fair to be an essential life experience. I have performed on the main stage with a belly dance troupe, filled an hour of spoken word stage time, and worked in the kitchen of a food booth—which is also where I met my husband. It’s a place to escape t ...
