PRINEVILLE, David Fisher had prepared on a recent Sunday for the congregation he pastors in Prineville was about a topic he said God told him that it needed to hear: forgiveness. Last October, the congregation at Faithpoint Ministries separated with the Oregon District of the United Pentecostal Church International. Fisher then became pastor with control of the Pentecostal church building. The district filed a lawsuit saying that his selection as pastor was wrong, and he had illegally taken over the church building. "There is hurt, absolutely," said Fisher, a 38-year-old dental assistant who has the support of the congregation to lead the church. "The people are stressed, and you can see the hurt in their eyes and hearts. How they've been treated by the district and their pastors over the last several years — those things hurt. But we just need to look over them and forgive and move forward." "There is hurt, absolutely," said Fisher, a 38-year-old dental assistant who has the support of the congregation to lead the church.

ALBANY, Oregon — The State of Oregon has conceded that a class action lawsuit seeking $1.4 billion for insufficient timber harvests isn’t blocked by the statute of limitations. The state government has also dropped its argument that county governments and local taxing districts don’t have legal standing to sue Oregon for alleged breach of contract. Last year, Linn County filed a lawsuit accusing Oregon of violating contracts with 15 counties by reducing logging on about 650,000 acres of forestland the counties had donated to the state. The lawsuit was certified as a class action by Linn County Circuit Judge Daniel Murphy, which means the 15 counties and roughly 150 taxing districts, such as schools and fire departments, were joined as plaintiffs in the case. Since then, Clatsop County’s government and Clatsop County Community College have opted out of the lawsuit while other taxing districts within Clatsop County have not. Attorneys for the plaintiffs had asked the judge to eliminate 12 “affirmative defenses” intended to shield the State of Oregon from the class action lawsuit. During oral arguments on April 20, Oregon’s attorneys agreed to drop several of these d ...

A bipartisan group of Oregon lawmakers unveiled a proposal on Friday to reel in state spending during the upcoming budget cycle. The plan calls for a two-year hiring freeze on "non-essential positions." It also would halt automatic budget increases tied to inflation for services and supplies. This comes as lawmakers are preparing to tackle a budget shortfall that's expected to reach $1.6 billion. The proposal was unveiled during a Friday afternoon meeting of legislative budget-writers. Democratic House Speaker Tina Kotek opened the meeting by cautioning that the ideas were not the product of formal negotiations. "I want to be very clear that these aren't products that have been agreed upon," she said. The goal behind the work group was to "get all the best ideas on the table from as many people as possible to get the conversation started." The expected savings for the 2017-2019 budget cycle were not included in the proposal, which has some similarities with a plan pitched jointly by the Republican caucuses of the Senate and House. That plan was expected to save roughly $237 million in general fund dollars, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal O ...

This undated aerial photo taken from a drone video and provided by, shows Tiller, Ore. Almost all of the downtown in Tiller, a dying timber town in remote southwestern Oregon, is for sale for $3.5 million and the elementary school is for sale separately for $350,000. The asking price of $3.5 million brings with it six houses, the shuttered general store and gas station, the land under the post office, undeveloped parcels, water rights and infrastructure that includes sidewalks, fire hydrants and a working power station. The listing represents a melancholy crossroads for Tiller, a once-bustling logging outpost that sprang up after the turn of the last century deep in what is now the Umpqua National Forest, about 230 miles south of Portland. The post office opened in 1902, and miners, loggers, ranchers and farmers flocked to the community along a pristine river. 30 years ago, logging on the federal forest lands that encircle Tiller came to a near standstill because of environmental regulations. The timber mill closed, and families moved away. One longtime resident began buying up properties. When he died three years ago, the family owned much of the town. ...
