SEATTLE - The Washington State Patrol says a pedestrian who tried to cross Interstate 5 in Seattle early Saturday was hit by a car and caused a spectacular crash, and it's remarkable no one was killed. 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. Investigators say it's amazing that Martinez-Jose suffered only minor injuries. Le was taken to Harborview Medical Center in serious condition and is expected to survive. The highway was closed for several hours. ...

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 $ ...

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. Senator Laurie Monnes Anderson, chairmain of the Senate Health Care, Human Services and Rural Health Policy Committee said the process will be similar to purchasing goods, such as airline tickets, online.

Business, in particular, especially small businesses, will see that this is going to be, they will have more security in premium rates that are not going to go up and down." Anderson added while some may be concerned about the change, in the end, this legislation will benefit the individuals, businesses and the whole state.

Giddy the kitty has returned home to her Reno owner, four years after vanishing and somehow winding up on the northern Oregon Coast. Officials at the Clatsop Animal Assistance center in Warrenton, Ore., were able to track the feline back to Bill Tweedy with the help of an identifying microchip embedded in the animal. Giddy earlier this month was flown to Reno in a commercial airliner and reunited with Tweedy, who had adopted her for companionship after going through a divorce. "She wasn't scared or didn't move away when I went to pick her up," Tweedy said of the reunion. "She snuggled up in my arm and she stayed there. I think she remembered me." After the house cat darted out the front door of his home in 2007 and failed to return, a heartbroken Tweedy gave her up for dead or stolen. He now thinks someone in Reno took in the cat and later moved to Oregon. Tweedy, 48, a driver for NevCal Trucking, said he was shocked when he recently found out 6-year-old Giddy had turned up alive in Oregon. "I was really happy to have her back," he said. "When I got her, I had just had a divorce and wanted company. I really missed her company the last several years." A voluntee ...

GRANTS PASS, Oregon - A bill to ban the trade in shark fins used in a traditional Chinese soup eaten to celebrate success is moving through the Oregon Legislature. A House committee this week unanimously passed the bill, setting up a floor vote. Hawaii has already adopted a similar ban and Washington and California are considering them. Environmental groups backing the bill say globally some 70 million sharks each year are thrown back into the ocean to starve or bleed to death after having their fins sawn off. They warn that sharks are slow to reproduce and serve a key function in ocean ecosystems, and their survival is threatened by the demand for their fins. Federal law requires sharks caught in U.S. waters be landed whole, but the fins can still be sold. ...
