SALEM, Oregon - Governor Kitzhaber released the following statement regarding the May 12th revenue forecast: "Today’s revenue forecast is good news for the 2011-13 budget, but it is also further indication that Oregon’s recovery will take time. We must take this opportunity to integrate and streamline state services like health care and education to deliver better outcomes and reduce costs, and we need to budget adequate reserves to leave a cushion for future revenue fluctuations. As legislative leaders agreed earlier this week, the top priorities for additional revenue are restoring funding to programs within the Department of Human Services and public safety programs." ...

GRESHAM, Oregon - Several children at a Gresham elementary school have now been tested and treated for whooping cough. The school principal is now warning parents to be alert for symptoms. Last week three children were diagnosed with whooping cough. Seven kids in the class are at Butler Creek Elementary School, said Principal Karen Weinert said. The school sent home a letter to parents on Wednesday warning them to look for pertussis symptoms in their own kids. Any students with confirmed or suspected cases will be held out of school until about a week after being treatment. Whooping cough causes violent coughing and generally lasts for six weeks and can be especially dangerous for young children. The disease is spread through the air. Symptoms at first look like the common cold and usually develop about a week after exposure. Severe coughing starts about 10-12 days later. ...

BEND, Oregon - Oregon's gasoline price continue to increased even though oil prices have been decreasing. The statewide average increased a penny to $3.97 a gallon, while the national average decreased one-and-a-half cents to $3.95. That's the first decrease for the national average in over six weeks. Crude oil prices have decreased from $111 a barrel last week to about $102 Tuesday. AAA spokesperson in Oregon, Marie Dodds said bearish economic news last week had investors concerned about a possible correction in oil prices. "The spending pulse report that showed U.S. gasoline consumption down 1% for the week, and down 1.2% compared to a year ago. And then we also had kind of a murky report from the department of energy that showed and increase in crude stocks, but a slight drawdown in gasoline stocks." Dodds, a guest Wednesday morning on Wake Up Bend!, said it can take anywhere from one to two weeks to see gas prices move down "Chances are, if you stop at your neighborhood gas station, that gasoline was made from crude at the higher price. So, gas stations are not necessarily able to quickly lower their prices unless they sell at a loss. So, they have a lot of product ...

A new study gives a much-needed booster shot to the beleaguered AIDS vaccine field. The experiment, led by immunologist and pathologist Louis Picker of the Oregon Health & Science University in Beaverton, showed that an unusual approach to vaccinating against SIV (a simian cousin of HIV) protected 12 of 24 monkeys from a "challenge" with a particularly virulent strain of that virus. Specifically, all monkeys became infected, but in half of the animals, their immune systems drove the virus down to undetectable levels for more than a year. “It’s the best result I’ve seen against the worst SIV known,” says the University of Wisconsin’s David Watkins, an immunologist who tests AIDS vaccines in monkeys and was not involved with the work. “I’m very excited by this approach.” The vaccine contains SIV genes stitched into cytomegalovirus (CMV), a herpesvirus that harmlessly infects many humans and serves as the delivery vehicle, or vector, for the AIDS virus proteins. Typically, AIDS vaccines use vectors that quickly die, but CMV stays alive indefinitely and constantly confronts the immune system with the mock version of the enemy. As a result, Picker contends, the immune system stay ...

Condemned killer Gary Haugen has petition the court that he wants to drop all future appeals and proceed with his execution as a "protest to the arbitrary and vindictive Oregon death penalty scheme that is flawed and broken at best." Haugen repeatedly has made the same point during the past six months. Since the Oregon Supreme Court upheld Haugen's conviction and death sentence in November, the death-row inmate has sent eight letters to court officials stating his desire to drop all future appeals, potentially clearing the way for him to be executed. He soon may get his way. Haugen, 49, was sentenced to death for the 2003 jailhouse killing of fellow inmate David Polin, who was serving time for attempted murder and drug convictions. Haugen was convicted along with another inmate in the fatal attack, in which Polin suffered a crushed skull and 84 stab wounds. At the time of Polin’s death, Haugen was serving time for the 1981 murder of his former girlfriend’s mother in northeast Portland. If Judge Joseph Guimond issues the death warrant Friday, Haugen would most likely be executed in July or August. The Department of Corrections has obtained the drugs necessary fo ...

Parker confirmed that he is the man in the video. The video was shot by a group of not too bright kids at a West Hollywood Denny’s, following an OSU men’s basketball game against USC. In addition, while the morons who shot the cell camera video were having a great time with it, Parker himself doesn’t consider it a laughing matter.

SALEM, Oregon - Washington state is monitoring the wild pig populations in Oregon, where the fish and wildlife department has ordered farmers to determine the size of the destructive pig populations on their land and get rid of them. The Oregon fish and wildlife department knows feral pigs are a problem. As an invasive species, they threaten crops and cause headaches for farmers. The state doesn't yet know how big of a problem. That's because most feral pigs in the state live in the low-precipitation private land. But they're inching closer to the high-value crop land, and neighboring states in the Pacific Northwest are worried. Feral pigs, like most problems in Oregon, get blamed on California. The pigs are game mammals in the state, meaning hunters have to get tags to shoot them. In the meantime, they root up cropland, destroy hillsides and generally wreak havoc on the environment. A bill passed last year in Oregon requires landowners to trap or shoot any feral swine known to roam their land, or at a minimum allow someone else to shoot or trap it. "Whether or not we'll be successful really depends on private landowners," said Keith Kohl of the Oregon Department of ...

VERNONIA, Oregon - The citizens of Vernonia are fighting over one of its police officers and his friends on the City Council. The disagreement is over officer Mike Kay, who the state says is a dishonest police officer, and three people who control the City Council. Officer Kay was in charge when a 10-year-old Ian Torres-Petersen was found safe last year after missing for a few days. "Whatever it is, if we ask for help, we usually get some type of community response," he said then. Now he’s on the sidelines on paid leave and under investigation by the state. "I would pity whoever got him as a police officer again, because I don’t see him changing his modus operandi," said former Vernonia Mayor Sally Harrison. Harrison pulls no punches when it comes to Kay. "The record shows that he’s a liar. I don’t want him in Vernonia anymore," she said. Her comment could be considered slander if not for the official state investigation. Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training investigators found Kay lied on his 2004 application to the Vernonia Police Department. ...

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.

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."

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.

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.
