KLAMATH, Calif. (AP) - Janet Wortman knew something was wrong when she drove by the U.S. Highway 101 bridge across the Klamath River and there were no people leaning over the railing to watch the 45-foot gray whale that had been there for nearly two months. "She would just swim back and forth right in front of you and at one point go like this, like she was waving at us," recalled Wortman, a member of the Yurok Tribe and a partner in the Requa Inn bed and breakfast overlooking the river. "Silly me, I waved back. It was like she was there to see people. She went back and forth. It was almost like she was going, 'Here I am, you guys. Can you see me?'" Before dawn Tuesday, the whale died after beaching itself on the north bank of the river in this coastal town of 800 people that is the headquarters of the Yurok Tribe. Scientists who had kept an eye on her since she swam into the river with her calf in late June were by her side. In the afternoon, a backhoe pulled the whale from the river onto the gravel bank amid tall willows and dug a pit. Tribal members sang a song and said a prayer to send the whale on to the afterlife, said tribal chairman Thomas O'Rourke. Then they turne ...

SALEM, Oregon — Health officials confirmed Wednesday that deer droppings are the source of an Oregon E. coli outbreak linked to strawberries. Researchers at the Oregon Public Health Division found that six samples of deer feces matched the E. coli found in people who were infected. The outbreak killed one elderly woman and sickened 14 others from northwestern Oregon. Jaquith Strawberry Farm produced the berries from the affected fields in Washington and Yamhill counties. They were sold to buyers who resold them at roadside stands and farmers markets. It has been known since 1995 that deer can carry E. coli, but investigators don't know why it hasn't, until now, shown up in strawberries anywhere in the United States. E. coli has been linked to other crops, such as alfalfa sprouts, spinach and apple cider. Researchers still aren't sure what made the outbreak occur in this particular time and place, said Dr. Katrina Hedberg, Oregon's state epidemiologist. It's unknown how many deer carry the harmful bacteria strain or whether this year's exceptionally cold and wet summer might have contributed to the feces coming in contact with the berries. Hedberg said there's no reas ...

MEDFORD, Oregon - The cheapest bid to resurface an Oregon city's roads came in nearly $2 million under the traditional cost, but drivers are already complaining about a bumpy ride. Medford paid a contractor $825,000 to resurface portions of city streets with low-cost cape seal. The city's road engineer said traditional repaving would have cost about $2.5 million. "Going into this, we recognized there would be sacrifices as far as quality," said city engineer Larry Beskow. "A lot of the quality issues are visual. I think if we were to blindfold them, and drive them around town, I don't think they would be able to tell the difference." Residents disagree. "It's an inferior job," said Rick Faust, a 61-year-old who lives near one of the resurfaced roads. "You can tell it went to the lowest bidder." The resurfacing company, Valley Slurry Seal Co. of Sacramento, Calif., was indeed the lowest bidder. State law dictates that cities must go with the lowest bid. That bid helps the city's effort to cut road costs by about 50 percent. The tradeoff for the cheaper cost is the asphalt is much thinner than usual, only a half-inch thick. Asphalt on the same roads would ...

An Oregon mother who tried to circumcise her newborn at home was sentenced to five years probation. Keemonta Peterson, 29, said she was inspired by the Old Testament and made the attempt with a box cutter last October, sending her three-month-old to the hospital, according to The Associated Press. She pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal mistreatment. Peterson decided to do the surgery herself after watching YouTube videos because she believed he was too old to be circumcised by doctors, according to Oregon Live. She called 911 when the baby began bleeding uncontrollably and was in intense pain. A prosecutor said the baby has made a full recovery. Local Doctors completed the circumcision and the baby boy will have no lasting effects from the procedure. The baby boy, and Peterson's three other children, are currently in state custody, but Peterson is allowed supervised visits. "She's had two psychological evaluations and no one thinks she is a danger to society," her attorney, Scott Raivio, told KPTV, explaining the botched circumcision incident was "an aberration during a down period in her life." The judge agreed. "You love your children and have absolutely no ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Health officials think they'll be able to prove deer droppings in a strawberry field caused an E. coli outbreak that killed one person and sickened 14 others. Ten percent of the samples taken from the Jaquith Strawberry Farm tested positive for the bacteria, epidemiologist William Keene said Thursday. Scientists are testing more than 100 samples of soil, strawberries and deer droppings found in the field in Washington County. The Oregonian reported (http://bit.ly/oEyodG) the lab has yet to confirm a match in the specific strain of E. coli bacteria. "We're increasingly confident that we will be able to prove beyond any reasonable doubt that deer were the source of contamination of the strawberries," Keene said. Keene was surprised that such a high percentage of the samples tested positive. Bacteria is never uniformly spread throughout the environment or on contaminated food. Sometimes epidemiologists know it's there but can't prove it in the laboratory. "It could be there but in such low quantities that you have to collect thousands of samples," he said. "We don't have the resources to pay for that kind of testing." Of the 15 people involved, two ...

Roy and Jessica Fritts of Union, Oregon, were arrested around 1 p.m. Sunday near Echo, Utah, detective Dick Blust Jr., of Wyoming's Sweetwater County Sheriff's office said.

Veteran Oregon politician and noted Lincoln scholar Mark Odom Hatfield died this week from an undisclosed illness in an assisted care residence in his beloved state. It's appropriate that former Senator Hatfield passed away during the fourth month of the national Civil War Sesquicentennial, an era of American History that always held a special place in his heart and mind. Fittingly, the death of Hatfield, Oregon's 22nd Senator, occurred during the year marking the 150th Anniversary of the death of Oregon's second U.S. Senator on an obscure Virginia battlefield--Edward Dickinson Baker. For in addition to the large political legacy Hatfield has left to the U.S. Senate and to his home state; Hatfield had refocused national and regional attention on Senator Baker and Oregon's involvement in the Civil War. As a result of his outreach efforts, Senator Hatfield became a serious collector of Lincoln documents, art, photography and publications. Hatfield was Oregon's 29th Governor and the state's longest serving U.S. Senator and he was retired from politics when he died on Sunday, August 7, less than one month after his 89th birthday. Mark Hatfield was born in Dallas, Oregon on July 12, ...

MEDFORD, Oregon - The Southern Oregon man accused of killing his wife and four kids last month and setting their home on fire was arraigned on aggravated murder charges Friday, but did not enter a plea. Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Lorenzo Mejia gave defense attorney Geoff Gokey until Sept. 22 to review the evidence before a plea is entered. Given the seriousness of the case—aggravated murder carries a potential death penalty or life in prison without parole—Chief Deputy District Attorney Beth Heckert said she expects Jordan Adam Criado to plead not guilty. Criado has been accused of stabbing his wife, Tabasha Paige-Criado, 30, and two of the children and setting their small single-story house on fire in Medford on July 18. The 51-year-old Criado was pulled from the burning house with his wife and children and spent nearly three weeks unconscious in a hospital after suffering smoke inhalation. He was eventually released to police, who immediately arrested him. He remains in jail without bail. Family and friends have said Paige-Criado wanted a divorce.

A 12-year-old boy who spent as long as 20 minutes immersed in the Pacific Ocean surf before he was rescued is amazing his family. "Maybe there is a miracle that's happening here," the boy's father, Chad Ostrander of Spanaway, Wash., told reporters Tuesday. Charles "Dale" Ostrander was visiting the southwest Washington coast with members of his church youth group last Friday when he was caught in a riptide north of Long Beach. Doug Knutzen is part of the volunteer surf rescue team that spotted the boy in the water. When Knutzen carried Dale from the surf and handed him to medics, the veteran rescuer feared the worst. "I've been doing this since 1978," Knutzen told The Oregonian ( http://bit.ly/pOM33k). "It's something you never get used to, but I knew that the boy was gone, absolutely gone." Recording the scene was Damian Mulinix, a photographer from the Chinook Observer newspaper who had responded to the beach rescue. He says the other children from the church group sobbed and prayed. "They were crying, face-down on the ground, praying — it was a heart-wrenching scene," Mulinix said. Medics started CPR. Finally, after Dale reached a nearby hospital, his pulse r ...

SHERWOOD, Oregon - The Sherwood, Oregon HOME DEPOT store is selling lumber that contains a wet, orange stain. Upon a complaint to The Oregon Herald, the Sherwood Home Depot store was called. A store clerk by the name of "Johnny" in the lumber department had no idea what the wet stain on the lumber might be. He reluctantly referred us to the store manager on duty. A woman by the name of Shannon sounded quite confused and defensive when asked about the wet, orange substance. She placed us on hold then broke the telephone connection. We then called her again. She finally indicated the substance was Ethylene Glycol. This alarmed us because Ethylene Glycol is used as an antifreeze and is highly toxic. It can also cause death if ingested or cause toxic symptoms if absorbed through the skin. The lumber in question at Home Depot is 6 foot by 5.5 inches. If Shannon is correct and the substance is actually Ethylene Glycol, Home Depot may be required by law to provide to their customers a dangerous toxic warning sign of some sort. The lumber is soaking wet with the strange substance and easily contaminates the hands of anyone handling or transporting it. It would not be difficult for ...

THE DALLES, Oregon - Seven woman have accused an anesthesiologist at an Oregon hospital of sexual abuse, including some who say they were incapacitated by drugs when they were assaulted. Dr. Frederick George Field was charged with rape and felony sexual abuse in an arraignment Monday, based on new allegations from five woman, in addition two who had already come forward. A Wasco County grand jury originally indicted the 45-year-old Field last week based on the accusations of two female patients at Mid-Columbia Medical Center in The Dalles, Ore. Some of the women accusing Field say they were molested while they were incapacitated by anesthetics. Hospital spokesman Richard Baltus says the latest woman to accuse Field was a hospital employee, not a patient. Field was arrested July 28.

SALEM, Oregon - A Salem couple found dead in their backyard hot tub Monday morning overheated and drowned, the state medical examiner’s office said. Terry Kent, 56, and Melinda Sweeten, 57, were found in the hot tub by a relative who was planning to drop off a child in their care for the day. “They probably passed out and drowned after the heat became too much,” said Dr. Larry Lewman of the state medical examiner’s office. The deaths were likely accidental, but a toxicology report won’t be completed for at least a day, he said. Kent and Sweeten were settling into retired life and appeared to have put a string of financial and legal troubles behind them. The discovery of the bodies drew curious neighbors out of their homes on the cul-de-sac where the couple lived for five years. “They’d have ups and downs with things,” said family friend Mike Peerenboom. “He was a different kind of guy but he was a stand-up guy who would help anyone who needed it.” Peerenboom said he has known Kent since 1996, when Kent worked for a construction company in Salem. Kent worked with sewer mainline installation, then began working on general remodeling. Sweeten had been suffering ...
