JOHN DAY, Oregon - Two small cougars have been shot and killed in the Eastern Oregon town of John Day after one was spotted in a baseball dugout and two more were seen in a nearby backyard. After a 911 call, Oregon State Police say officials found the first cougar Friday still near the baseball field. A fish and wildlife trooper killed the animal because it was close to homes and people, although on the outskirts of town. A second cougar, similar in size to the first, was shot and killed near the 7th Street Complex about 4:30 p.m. Searchers spotted the third cougar, but soon lost its trail. State wildlife biologist Ryan Torland said the cougar weighed about 25 to 30 pounds and appeared malnourished. Officials used dogs to track the other two cats. A second, similarly sized cougar was shot and killed late Friday afternoon near the same park and athletic complex. Searchers spotted the third cougar but then lost its trail. ODFW offers the following safety tips if you encounter a cougar:
  1. Cougars often will retreat if given the opportunity. Leave the animal a way to escape.
  2. Stay calm and stand your ground.

PORTLAND, Oregon - A parasite found in two water samples could affect Portland's effort to avoid building a $90 million treatment plant for the Bull Run watershed. Tests found the cryptosporidium parasite in Dec. 30 tests. Courtney Nash, 16, died in August 2011, after swimming in a river in Florida, just days after Christian Strickland, nine, from Virginia was killed by the same deadly amoeba! Both kids caught meningitis from the terrifying and tiny amoeba called Naegleria fowleri. Naegleria fowleri quickly travels through the body destroying brain tissue — and experts warn there’s the risk of an epidemic in Virgina, where Christian picked up the parasite on a fishing camp on August 5. Dr Keri Hall, state epidemiologist at the Virginia Department of Health, says, "Sadly, we have had a Naegleria infection in Virginia this summer. It’s important that people be aware of … safe swimming messages.’ Courtney Nash caught Naegleria fowleri when she dived into St. John’s River with family members. She died this week. ...

MEDFORD, Oregon - A 20-year-old man shot and killed by federal marshals in the parking lot of a Medford supermarket had been ordered into residential drug treatment for violating his probation on a conviction for assaulting a marshal. James Harrison Georgeson admitted to using drugs in violation of his probation last October, according to court records obtained by The Associated Press on Friday. He was also ordered to spend up to 120 days in residential drug treatment. The records don't say whether he complied. Georgeson served two years in prison after pleading guilty in 2009 to assaulting a marshal. A pre-sentencing report says Deputy Marshal Vincent Byford was looking for someone else in an apartment in Talent on Oct. 5, 2009, when Georgeson shut himself in a bathroom, then jumped out the window. The deputy chased him to another apartment complex, where Georgeson tackled the deputy and had to be hit three times with a stun gun before he could be handcuffed. At the jail, Georgeson complained of injuries, and after he was taken to a hospital, bolted when the handcuffs were taken off to transfer him from a gurney to a wheelchair, court documents said. Georgeson jumpe ...

I remember first seeing you just after you were born, home from the hospital at the old Ranch in Cloverdale, Oregon. Mom had carefully wrapped you in baby blankets at the entrance to the livingroom. That image stands prominently in my mind. After that, I didn’t see you for several years. I was pushed into a succession of foster homes. Not that I minded, not then but I was away from all five of you. We next met 50 years ago when you were just four or five. Dad was in the big house and I was visiting all of you for a couple months during early summer of 1962. I had only lived at the Ranch for a short while when I was 11. When I saw you again, it was obvious a pretty, precocious little girl stood in front of me. You smiled and giggled nervously. You followed me around everywhere. The summer was hot and we played together, in itself unusual; a 16-year-old boy having fun with his younger sister. I guess we both were in need of attention. You had no baggage, no bad feelings; you were open, bright, and happy. You had found a new brother, different, and you were caught up in that idea, asking endless questions. I was your TV program, your new thing, the mysterious brother kick ...
