Just two years after it opened, Microsoft is shutting down its Oregon-based factory for manufacturing its Surface Hub jumbo tablets, according to a report Wednesday by The Oregonian. The plant, located in Wilsonville, Oregon, just outside of Portland, was once positioned as a symbol of successful US manufacturing. But now Microsoft will lay off 124 employees and dozens of contractors -- nearly everyone at the site, according to the report. Microsoft reportedly said it will move production of the Surface Hub -- a huge touchscreen computer meant to replace conference room whiteboards -- to where it makes all of its other Surface products. The company didn't specifically say where, but the rest of the devices are manufactured in China. The move underscores the challenges of trying to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States, despite pressure from the Trump administration to do so.

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office will be participating in enhanced DUII enforcement during the Fourth of July holiday. Independence Day is one of our nation's most celebrated holidays. With plenty of backyard barbecues, picnics, and pool parties to attend, millions of Americans head out onto the roads to take part in summer festivities. Unfortunately, this celebratory holiday often turns deadly for those who decide to drink and drive. In fact, in 2015, 10,265 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes--almost a third of all traffic fatalities nationwide. To put it in perspective, that's equal to about 20 jumbo jets crashing, with no survivors. The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration want to remind you that any time you drive under the influence of alcohol, you put everyone in danger, including yourself. Help us spread this lifesaving message: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. During the Fourth of July holiday period, which starts at 6 p.m. Friday, June 30, and ends on Wednesday, July 5 at 5:59 a.m., make sure you plan for a safe weekend of festivities. The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office will be adding enha ...
