SALEM, Oregon - Oregon will press on with its efforts to provide retirement plans to private-sector employees who lack those benefits at work, despite pending legislation from Congress. In a 50-49 vote, the U.S. Senate on Wednesday repealed Labor Department rules from the Obama administration that would have made it easier for states to offer retirement plans for workers who who don't have them. The House previously approved similar legislation. Five states — California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland and Oregon — already have approved programs that would automatically enroll workers without employer-sponsored retirement plans into individual retirement accounts. Oregon "will continue to move forward with our pilot program that is launching on July 1 this year. The need to address the oncoming retirement crisis is too great," said Oregon Treasurer Tobias Read in a statement. Trade groups from the financial services industry supported the measure while consumer advocates worried that it will be harder to h ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Sixteen volunteers from the City of Portland and nine from Wells Fargo descended on a small house in N.E. Portland last Saturday, April 29, completely transforming the property for the permanently disabled senior citizen who lives there.

Last April, Justin Samora and Cody Plagmann were arrested after beheading two bighorn sheep near Interstate 84 in Oregon. The two were caught in the act by motorists and, once police arrived at the scene, they found one man inside of a vehicle while the other hid in the brush down the road. As goHUNT previously reported, officers found the severed heads of two bighorn sheep rams; their bodies discarded and left to waste. Troopers believed Samora and Plagmann only wanted the heads for trophy mounts. Both men were arrested immediately. Last week, both men pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of bighorn sheep. Plagmann, the ringleader of the operation, must serve 40 days in jail; both men were sentenced to a year of probation and lose hunting privileges for three years, must complete 40 to 80 hours of community service and pay fines ranging from $1,500 to $2,000, The Oregonian reports. Yet, because Oregon recently increased penalties for a number of different species in an attempt to curb poaching and illegal hunting activities, it’s possible that Plagmann and Samora will have to pay another $25,000 in restitution for their crimes.

DAMASCUS, Ore. — Months after authorities said a dead horse and malnourished animals were found on a woman's property in Damascus, neighbors claim they're still dealing with the fallout.

Neighbors said Friday that they suspect the carcass of the horse is still there. Clackamas County authorities said it died in January.

Regarding the carcass, a county spokesman told KATU, "We've been engaged on this issue."

But neighbors said they're not happy with the county's response. They said they complained to the county last week about the carcass, but as far as they know it's still on the property off the 12000 block of Southeast Winston Road.

A KATU reporter could smell a strong odor from next door Friday afternoon.

A woman on the property declined to comment when asked whether the carcass of the horse was still there.

Last month, prosecutors said a woman who lives there, Christie Davis, 60, was charged with seven counts of second-degree animal neglect.

In the wake of numerous recent PR setbacks, Uber may be able to help clean up its image with the launch of the Uber EV initiative in Portland, which supports the city’s green vision for the future. When you think of electric mobility, California might be the first state to come to mind—but Oregon is not far behind. It's one of 13 states that have adopted California’s Clean Car Standards, and Oregon is also one of the first states in which automakers release plug-in electric vehicles (and compliance cars). Uber is now asking its current Portland driver-partners to sign up for the Uber electric program, which will officially kick off in late May. The company has about 6,000 active drivers in Oregon, with about 100 of them already using some form of electric vehicle. Uber hopes to increase that number to 10 percent by 2019, or 600 drivers, according to a recent article in TechCrunch. Oregon was chosen because the state recently passed a bill to encourage utilities to increase and improve the infrastructure to support the growing number of plug-in vehicles. Uber hasn't said if it is offering driver-partners any money towards purchasing an EV if they do not currently ...
