With beautiful coastline, windswept sand dunes, and a love of outdoor recreation, Oregon has long been a surprising hotbed for destination golf resorts boasting standout courses. Today the most famous is golf-centric Bandon Dunes, developer Mike Keiser’s monument to great course design, which deservedly draws golfing purists like moths to a flame. But long before Bandon, there were serval other major golf resorts here, all of which have far more well-rounded non-golf offerings. John Gray was the developer who put Oregon golf on the map, building three vacation-worthy resorts here, Sunriver, Skamania and more than 50 years ago, his very first, Salishan Spa and Golf Resort. Located two hours from Portland on the central Oregon coast, Salishan was where it all started, and after a few changes in ownership, it has been under new management for the last year and half and is experiencing a major rebirth that golfing - and non-golfing travelers - might want to keep on their radar. Especially if they love food. The resort recently completed a multi-million-dollar renovation, and last fall the new management company, Crescent Hotels & Resorts, hired GM Steven Hurst from what is arguab ...

Portland, OR -- Monday, May 29, 2017, would have marked President John F. Kennedy's 100th birthday. In honor of this milestone, and in celebration of the Oregon Historical Society's current exhibition High Hopes: The Journey of John F. Kennedy, OHS is offering free admission Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 27 through Monday, May 29. "As we approach the centennial of John F.

This original exhibition explores Kennedy's early life, his road to the presidency, and the changes he effected during his time in office. With the high hopes of the country behind him, Kennedy made a commitment to chan ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - It had to happen eventually. Now a person has legally become a NO GENDER human. Not a male. Not a female. Jamie Shupe has been given court approval to legally remove the male or female designation. In writing this story, I found it difficult to refer to ah, her, he, it. This creates a new set of concerns as well as the new designation. The word "it" will certainly not work. “I have my life back,” Shupe said. “I’m not a male. I’m not a female. I am the first official genderless person in the United States. Shupe seems to be the first person in the United States who has successfully petitioned for a non-binary gender classification, according to Hayley Gorenberg, deputy legal director for Lambda Legal, a New York-based gay rights organization. “Classic gender markers don’t fit everybody,” Gorenberg said, calling the petition significant for helping people “exist without labels that don’t accurately describe them”. At a recent support group meeting in Portland, where Shupe lives, a young woman tearfully thanked Shupe for broadening the conversation about gender classifications. Shupe, a former army sergeant assigned male at birth and listed as fema ...

A normal bedtime routine turned into a trip to the emergency room for an Oregon couple and their 3-year-old after she experienced partial paralysis because of a tick bite. Amanda Lewis of La Grande described the scare on Facebook, saying her daughter, Evelyn, became fussy after a bath on May 12 and couldn’t stand. Amanda Lewis and her husband, Lantz, posted a video of their daughter still struggling to stand the next morning; the couple asked family members who are nurses for help figuring what was wrong. The video has since been watched more than 17 million times. “Evelyn started acting a little weird last night around bedtime. She didn’t want to stand up after her bath to get into her pajamas. I helped her and got her in bed. She was a little fussy last night and I ended up sleeping in bed with her all night,” Amanda Lewis posted. The girl’s symptoms began to get worse, and since Lantz has a history with cancer, they rushed Evelyn to the ER. Lantz Lewis told CNN, “I was in the Navy, and they found a rare brain tumor typically found in children. I couldn’t run straight, and I felt dizzy, so our minds starting going to that.” At the hospital, the doctor told the c ...

Jalaunda Beamon, the woman’s mother and the boy’s grandmother, told KOIN 6 News a one-year-old baby in the house was unharmed. “I really don’t know why, I don’t know why somebody can do something so cruel, to shoot a kid, and I just thank god my granddaughter got out of the house in time,” Beamon said.

Late last month, Gov. Kate Brown announced a bold initiative: She plans to sell $5 billion worth of public assets to pay down part of Oregon's $22 billion pension deficit. Without providing specifics, Brown said just about anything except state forests, parks and prisons could be had for the right price. According to sources familiar with the governor's thinking and recent efforts in other states, that could include not only property but as many as four state agencies—overseeing everything from liquor and cannabis sales to keno machines and Portland's light-rail system. It's too early to know how much buyers might pay for Oregon agencies, but based on asset values bandied about elsewhere, it's clear Brown would have to sell such crown jewels to approach $5 billion. The governor's willingness to entertain such ideas is a departure from Democrats' historical preference for focusing on new tax revenue. A review of the experiences of other states, however, shows Brown's attempt will be challenging. "Everybody thinks selling assets is a good idea—until you get to the specifics," says state Sen. Mark Hass (D-Beaverton), chairman of the Senate Revenue Committee. But som ...

A bill signed into law by Gov. Kate Brown today will make the process simpler, cheaper, and more private. Oregon’s Kate Brown, the nation’s first and only out bisexual governor, is helping to keep the state in the forefront of LGBT progress, today signing a law making it easier for transgender Oregonians to revise the name and gender on their birth certificates. Under the new law, House Bill 2673A, trans people with Oregon birth certificates will be able to make the changes simply by filling out a form rather than posting a public notice in a county clerk’s office and going to court, making the process easier and more private while greatly reducing the cost, Reuters reports. Oregon is only the second state to put such a procedure in place; California was the first, in 2014. Oregon’s law will go into effect January 1. “Many transgender Oregonians fear being publicly outed by having sensitive medical and personal information disclosed through the current court process,” said Nancy Haque, co-executive director of LGBT group Basic Rights Oregon, in a press release. “They have to post their name change on a public bulletin board and sometimes answer personal medical questions i ...
