A TriMet bus driver, 53-year-old Christopher Alden Parker, was arrested Tuesday accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl, according to police. On Tuesday May 3, 2011, at approximately 7:30 a.m., Portland Police responded to a residence in Southeast Portland where they contacted the victim of a sexual assault. Officers arrived and contacted the victim, a 48-year-old female, who reported that she woke up to find a stranger in her house and that the stranger then sexually assaulted her. After the suspect fled the residence, the victim went to a friend's residence to call 9-1-1. Police say that TriMet is cooperating with their investigation but they have declined to comment. Trimet put Parker on administrative leave in March as it investigated a report that Parker was allowing friends and family ride the bus without a destination and driving off-route. During that investigation, TriMet asked police to check if Parker was doing anything illegal. When Parker's wife was asked about the charges she reportedly stated, "It's a lie, I know him. It's not true," she said. "He didn’t do it. I don’t care what anybody says, I know my husband. He’s innocent. He didn’t do it; he’s ...

Of Federal taxes paid by Oregonians this year about $ 10 billion will go to defense and national security spending. $ 10 billion pays for K-12 education, in Oregon, for 3 years. For every one dollar Oregonians pay to support K-12 education in Oregon we pay three dollars for national security and defense. In the 'Y' article published in early April we were introduced to an extraordinary document. Written by a Colonel in the Marine Corp and a Captain in the Navy the 'National Strategic Narrative' is particularly interesting because the authors work for the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Admiral Mullen. The preface presents the Narrative as "a non-partisan blueprint for understanding and reacting to the changes of the 21st century world. In one sentence, the strategic narrative of the United States in the 21st century is that we want to become the strongest competitor and most influential player in a deeply inter-connected global system, which requires that we invest less in defense and more in sustainable prosperity and the tools of effective global engagement." The $ 1 trillion, 20 year, DoD, Joint Strike Fighter program is a prime target to reduce military spending. ...

Will we ever see Kiko Alonso in an Oregon uniform again? The troubled linebacker is facing his second arrest in as many years. Oregon linebacker Kiko Alonso, last seen teaming up with the Ducks' D to turn in a bang-up showing in the 2011 spring game, served a season-long suspension in 2010 for a DUi arrest. Look for him to help out the team in a similar capacity next year, following a weekend arrest for first degree burglary, first degree criminal trespassing, and second degree criminal mischief. SB Nation's Addicted To Quack anticipates Alonso's dismissal, barring a miraculous legal turnaround: Just six days after George Schroeder wrote that "Alonso's redemption is worthy of celebration," this happens. The only way that I can see Alonso staying on the team is if the charges are dropped completely. I doubt the incident will be severe as the charges initially suggest, but Kiko has had his second chance, and I doubt Chip will give him a third. ...

PHILOMATH, Oregon - The friend of a 20-year-old Benton County man accused of fatally stabbing his ex-girlfriend and their young son says the couple had recently broken up as they struggled to balance work, college and childcare. "They were always smiling and funny people, but they are people who have been living in high stress for a long time," Mark McGuire of Corvallis told the Gazette-Times newspaper. "They both had time constraints — they both had full-time school, a kid for both of them, work for both of them. They pretty much had three full-time jobs." Gustavo David Martinez Aquepuncho is expected to be charged Monday with aggravated murder in the deaths of Kelsey Rozetta Baker, 19, and their 1-year-old son, Theo; it was not clear whether he had obtained a lawyer who could comment on the case.

Twenty-six-year-old Joel Martinez-Jose was driving a 1993 Honda Civic northbound when he tried unsuccessfully to swerve to avoid 39-yaer-old Thau Qual Le. The impact threw Le clear of the roadway, and the Civic wound up in the next lane over where it was almost completely demolished by a U.S. Postal Service semi truck.

SALEM, Oregon - The Oregon House on Friday unanimously passed a bill that would ban the sale of shark fins used in a traditional Chinese soup. "The trade is, as yet, quite small in Oregon," the bill's chief sponsor, Brad Witt, D-Clatskanie, said in a statement. "But with shark fin soup commanding prices that approach $200 a bowl in major cities around the world, it is important that our state join West Coast and international efforts intended to shut down the commercial trading of shark fins." House Bill 2838 now goes to the Senate. The bill prohibits the possession and distribution of shark fins and carries a fine of up to $720 for violations. It makes an exception for spiny dogfish, a small shark that accounts for 300,000 pounds in landings by commercial fishermen each year. Sport fishermen with a valid license are not affected. About 150 sharks are caught each year off Oregon, according to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. The soup, which has a subtle flavor and gelatinous consistency, is served during Chinese dinners and banquets to convey affluence, similar to caviar. The fins are cut in narrow slices and give the soup texture. The fins sell for $299 to $ ...

OREGON CITY - A lead nurse from Willamette Falls Hospital reported to police that a former employee had been caught stealing narcotics. The nurse said this incident was related to a similar call they had made to police the night before on March 30, 2011. The previous evening, hospital staff had reported that somebody was stealing Dilaudid from a pain pump. Dilaudid is a Schedule 2, morphine narcotic in liquid form. Oregon City Police arrived to find that hospital staff had detained Catherina Hansen (dob: 06-15-59). Ms. Hansen was wearing a blonde wig, red glasses and a white lab coat. Hospital staff determined that someone had stolen 24.6 mg of Dilaudid from a patient's room on 3-30-11. The Dilaudid was kept in a syringe, inside a locked pain pump. This meant that a key was required to access the medication. This particular pump showed that the patient had not received any medication, through most of the narcotic in the syringe was gone. They alerted hospital employees to look out for suspicious people who might be stealing medication. On 03-31-11, a nurse found Ms. Hansen in the hallway at about 11:10 pm.

SALEM, Oregon - In a first-of-its-kind ruling, an Oregon federal judge has ordered the Vatican to produce documents involving a dead priest accused of sexually assaulting a boy in the 1960s. A ruling could set a precedent for a similar case in Milwaukee. U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman issued the narrow decision to determine whether Father Andrew Ronan was an employee of the Vatican at the time of the abuse - a key question in deciding whether the court has jurisdiction to hear the case on its merits. "The plaintiff has proffered evidence that tends to show the Holy See knew of Ronan's propensities and that, in some cases ... exercised direct control over ... priests accused of similar sexual misconduct," Mosman said. Lawyers for the Oregon victim, identified in court records as John V. Doe, called Thursday's ruling groundbreaking and said it addresses the same issues raised in the Milwaukee case involving the late Father Lawrence Murphy, a serial pedophile believed to have molested hundreds of deaf boys over decades. "It's huge. That's the very claim we're making in Milwaukee, and it's a door that's never been opened before," said St. Paul, Minn., attorney Jeffre ...

The program is designed to work as a central marketplace, allowing individuals and small businesses to shop for coverage based on value, cost, and quality.
