Does Vietnam Airlines hate Americans? It seems only one person in their entire organization has a heart or the desire to actually help someone. 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. Stop punishing innocent Americans or other foreigners who only wish to help people in Vietnam as is this man, an American doctor stranded in the mountains in The Philippines trying to get home, to VIETNAM! Singapore Air helped the good doctor with his beloved cat for permission to get onboard to Ho Chi Minh City. So, it seems only Vietnam Airlines have refused to help him provide the standard information they demand to accept his shy American cat on their aircraft. The doctor has made complete and total payment online, everything so far they have asked, but he needs approval to get his pet onboard. The problem is that the doctor cannot make telephone calls from his current remote mountain village in The Philippines, where he practices for only a few pesos. He can only communicate via email and online. The phone system in the mountain town is not working. And Vietnam Airline ...

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 ...

Oregon’s Republican state senators agreed to return to the Capitol Friday, after a week on the run to stop Democrats from passing a landmark climate bill. Democrats said earlier this week that the climate bill, which would have established a cap-and-trade system for carbon emissions, didn’t have the votes necessary to pass. Speaking at a press conference in the Capitol Friday, Senate Republican leader Herman Baertschiger Jr. said his members would return to Salem in time for the 9 a.m. legislative session on Saturday. “Our mission of walking out of this building was to kill cap-and-trade,” he said. “I’m proud of this caucus.” Senators will have a sprint to finish their work this weekend, with the legislative session scheduled to end Sunday at midnight. There are more than 100 pending bills and resolutions that need Senate approval in that time, including state budget bills. Any bill not approved by Sunday night will be dead. Senate Majority Leader Ginny Burdick, a Democrat, said bills on paid family leave and a tobacco tax to fund public health were also priorities, in addition to the budget. She said the cap-and-trade bill was one vote short of the 16 it needed to p ...

Shortly after 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 13, 2019, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to reports of a crash between a motorcycle and a truck. The crash took place on NW Cornelius Pass Road just north of NW West Union Road in unincorporated Washington County, near Hillsboro. Jeremy Womelsdorff, 41, of Estacada was driving southbound on NW Cornelius Pass Road when he crashed head-on with a dump truck pulling a large trailer loaded with tree stumps. Mr. Womelsdorff was seriously injured in the crash and was transported to an area trauma hospital by the Life Flight Network. At last report, Mr. Womelsdorff was listed in critical condition. The driver of the truck, Eugene Zurbrugg, was not injured in the crash. Investigators say it appears the motorcycle entered the lane of the truck, causing the crash. The truck driver was able to swerve off the road to avoid other oncoming cars, which caused the trailer to detach and flip over. There is no indication that either driver was under the influence of intoxicants. The road was closed for several hours. The sheriff’s office would like to thank the Hillsboro Police Department officers who initially responded so ...

LAKE OSWEGO – The City of Lake Oswego Public Works Department experienced a sanitary sewer spill on the afternoon of Friday, June 7th, 2019.

Almost a year after Oregon state Rep. Janelle Bynum’s story of being questioned by police after a 911 call on her as she campaigned in her district went viral and sparked the hashtag #CampaigningWhileBlack, Oregon state senators have passed a bill that would allow the victims of frivolous, discriminatory 911 calls to sue the callers. On Monday, the Oregon state Senate passed House bill 3216, a measure introduced by the state’s three black Democratic legislators, including Bynum. The bill allows victims of these calls to sue a 911 caller for as much as $250 if the victim can prove that the 911 call was racially motivated and that the caller intended to discriminate or harm the reputation of the victim. The legislation was overwhelmingly supported by state lawmakers of both parties, but it was deeply personal for Bynum, the only black legislator in the Oregon House (the other two black legislators serve in the state Senate.) ”When someone gets the police called on them for just existing in public, it sends a message that you don’t belong here,” Bynum told the Associated Press on Monday. “This creates a legal pathway to justice.” The bill, which passed the Oregon House in ...
