SALEM, Oregon - The ability to pump your own gas is now law in Oregon. The Oregon Senate gave final approval that allows self-service fueling in 15 rural counties. The self-serve gas law that took effect Monday and has gone viral on the Internet. House Bill 2482, which was signed into law last year by Gov. Kate Brown, allows motorists to pump their own gas in nearly half of Oregon’s 36 counties. Oregon and New Jersey had long been the only two states in the U.S. to bar customers from pumping their own fuel ? a job relegated to gas station attendants. The new law likely would have gained little notice if not for a CBS affiliate in Medford, Oregon, which asked its Facebook followers to weigh in. The responses they received, both serious and whimsical, prompted the post to go viral over the weekend. As of Tuesday, it had been shared more than 20,000 times and drew more than 18,000 comments. A sampling of concerns: “I don’t even know HOW to pump gas and I am 62, native Oregonian … I say NO THANKS! I don’t want to smell like gasoline!” “I’ve lived in this state all my life and I REFUSE to pump my own gas … This a service only qualified people should perform. ...

Portland, Oregon, is a city I visit often, for both work and pleasure. For starters, the vibes are refreshingly chill and laid back. Dressing casually is the norm, even when dining at chicer spots. And the popular slogan of "Keep Portland Weird” ensures that people from all walks of life are welcome with open arms. Last but not least, the food. From food carts (hello, Nong's Khao Man Gai) to beloved mainstays (like Ringside Steakhouse, Nostrana, and Pok Pok), there’s countless reasons why The City of Roses has remained a top travel destination for both Americans and travelers abroad for years.

But for one reason or another, I rarely considered venturing beyond Portland’s borders – until I got tipped off to McMinnville.

An easy hour’s drive south of Portland will lead you to an impossibly charming town – Third Street is so picturesque, it could easily double as a movie backdrop – that also boasts big city perks and amenities. (No wonder so many savvy Portlanders frequent McM ...

A 29-year-old teacher in Oregon is accused of numerous sex crimes after authorities said she had carried on a sexual relationship with an underage student. Andrea Nicole Baber, who taught literature, writing and speech at Logos Christian Academy in Springfield, started a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student in 2016, officials with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said. Authorities said in a statement that Baber also gave the teenager marijuana. Baber was taken into custody last week on numerous charges, including third-degree rape, third-degree sodomy, contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor and first-degree online sexual corruption of a minor.

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. "Oregonians must come together and solve our school funding crisis so that all Oregon students have the opportunity to reach their highest potential." 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. ...
