PORTLAND, Oregon - Packy is turnnig 49 but the celebration at the Oregon Zoo won't be held until this weekend on Saturday. Born on April 14, 1962, Packy was the first elephant to be born in the United States in 44 years. He's been an Oregon celebrity ever since. Saturday's "Elephantastic" party will include games, crafts, pastry elephant ears and birthday cake at noon. Packy now tips the scales at more than 6 tons. He has fathered seven elephant calves. Packy’s parents were Thonglaw and Belle. Thonglaw was wild-born in Cambodia in 1947 and Belle was wild-born in Bangkok in 1952. Thonglaw died in 1974 and Belle died in 1997. Portlanders first learned of Belle’s pregnancy and the impending birth through an article in THE OREGONIAN in January, and the city came alive with anticipation. "Belle Bulletins" and a “Name the Baby” contest were aired by local radio stations. Stuffed elephants appeared in toy departments and school children made drawings of what they thought the baby would look like. For three months zoo veterinarian Dr. Matthew Maberry literally lived in the elephant house, keeping a close watch on the maternity ward. ...

ROSEBURG, Oregon - An electrical engineer who lives in Cottage Grove but commutes to the town of Sutherlin is saving a lot of gas as the first owner of a Chevy Volt in Oregon. Carey Bailey told the Roseburg News-Review that he's cut his monthly commuting cost by 80 percent since buying the electric car in January. The Chevy Volt runs off a lithium-ion battery that is backed up by a gasoline generator that recharges it while driving. Bailey says he recharges the car by plugging it into an electrical outlet when he gets to work. But the state is planning to install a series of fast-charge electric vehicle stations along Interstate 5, including ones in Roseburg, Rice Hill and Canyonville. The stations will provide full charges in as little as 15 minutes.

The Oregon senate Tuesday unanimously passed two education-spending bills to force teacher layoffs, larger classes, and shorter school years. The Senate ignored recommendations from educator, unions and Democrats and authorized $5.7 billion that will leave schools far short of what they say they need for the next two years. "I don't like it," Sen. Chris Edwards, D-Eugene, told senators. "But colleagues, you know what, this recession sucks. All these decisions suck and this budget sucks. But we don't have a choice. We have to do this." Lawmakers said that since they can't give schools more money, they opted instead to give them certainty and stability. Sen. Rod Monroe, D-Portland, said the $5.7 billion in funding is "sacrosanct," even if tax collections continue to decline when the latest revenue projections are released in May. "I can assure you, that number is firm," said Monroe, co-chair of the budget subcommittee that handles education. "It is not going to change. Sacrosanct. We're not going to whittle away at it even if the May forecast is down a little bit." The education bills, HB5552 and HB 5553, draw on $123 million from two savings accounts, the Education St ...

THE DALLES, Oregon - Monday morning close to lunchtime, a wild bear was seen climbing across and up the The Dalles Dam with no easy way to get off. He was confused. He couldn't find a way to move in any direction, and had nowhere to go, and no one to help him. Or so he thought! The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife sent a team of biologists to check out the bear. They talked for a spell as those sort do then came up with a plan. They called the State Police. All this caused some distress with humans at work attempting to find a good solution. ODFW representative Rick Hargrave said the bear was caught in some cables. Nasty stuff. Can’t have those cables being disturbed. The bear was stuck in a difficult area to navigate so humans in charge apparently came to the conclusion there was no way to rescue the unfortunate bear without putting a human at risk. Biologists decided that if the bear was tranquilized, there was a chance it would slide 75 feet downward and be killed or perhaps injured and wander into a state park downstream and attack and eat some Oregon citizen. ...

PORTLAND, Oregon – Federal prosecutors, citing national security concerns, urged a judge on Thursday not to force them to turn over to the defense more materials in the case of a Somali man charged with trying to blow up an Oregon Christmas tree-lighting ceremony. "There are important national security concerns that militate for limited discovery in certain areas and which should guard against an unwarranted fishing expedition," court documents filed by government lawyers on Thursday said. Mohamed Osman Mohamud was arrested on November 26 after he allegedly tried to detonate what he thought was a car bomb during a crowded tree-lighting ceremony in Portland on November 26. The bomb was actually fake explosives provided by undercover agents. Mohamud's attorneys have asked for more materials from the government as they prepare their defense, including recording equipment that allegedly failed during a crucial meeting between undercover agents and the alleged jihadist. The failure to record the meeting was human error and "giving the defense access to the device would serve no proper purpose," prosecutors said in their court filing. The government attorneys said they ...
