PORTLAND, Oregon (AP) — Oregon environmental regulators acted Thursday to raise standards that limit toxic pollutants in the water, aiming to protect people such as tribal members who eat a lot of fish. The new standards are based on a daily consumption rate among humans that officials said works out to 23 portions a month of about 8 ounces each of fish or shellfish. Tribes have pressed since the 1990s for more control over such pollutants as mercury, pesticides and dioxins in the water — arguing that they shouldn't be harmed for exercising their treaty rights and following cultural and religious practices in fish consumption. Higher standards met resistance from paper mills, farmers and loggers, and managers of municipal sewage treatment plants. The state Environmental Quality Commission approved new standards at a Pendleton meeting, on a 4-1 vote, the Oregonian newspaper reported. Supporters of the new standards said they realize some industries will need time to make changes, and there's work ahead to improve river quality monitoring and enforcement. "This is an important first step," said Carl Merkle, a policy analyst for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatill ...

RUCH, Oregon - Albert Obrist didn't hesitate for a second when asked why he is volunteering his time and expertise for a stranger. "Anybody willing to go into the service for their country deserves a lot of respect when they come back, especially in a situation like this," said Obrist, 28, a service technician for Spring Air Inc. of Jacksonville.

Cliff Harris, Oregon's All-American cornerback, has been indefinitely suspended from the Ducks program and will miss the team’s season opener against LSU, UO coach Chip Kelly announced Wednesday. Harris was pulled over early Sunday after being clocked driving a rental car 118 mph. His driver’s license was suspended at the time of the incident. Oregon officials are investigating other circumstances around the case, including whether any NCAA violations were committed. A university employee rented the car Harris was driving, according to multiple media reports. Harris’ reinstatement will depend on him adhering to unannounced standards set forth by Kelly and the program. "Cliff’s future clearly is in Cliff’s hands," Kelly said in a statement. "Until Cliff is able to conform to the same standards all of us must comply with, his status will remain unchanged." Harris earned All-America honors last season after intercepting six passes and averaging better than 18 yards per punt return.

EUGENE, Oregon — Some rural Oregon residents have filed a lawsuit against the state over rules they say protect forest and farm landowners who spray herbicides that can drift over to neighboring property. The seven people filing the lawsuit this week in Lane County Circuit Court in Eugene live in Western Oregon. Three are in the Blachly area, two near Sublimity a little east of Salem and two live near Walton east of Mapleton on Highway 126, The Register-Guard reported. Their complaint alleges that laws passed by the state Legislature in 1993 give them no legal recourse in the courts from the periodic episodes of herbicide drift from neighboring landowners. Gary Hale and Jan Wroncy of Blachly say the problems with herbicide drift go back decades. They've lived and farmed organically on 7 acres since purchasing the land in 1987. Their son, Forest Wroncy-Hale, is the third plaintiff from Blachly. Their property is surrounded by privately owned forested slopes frequently treated with herbicides in an effort to knock down weeds so that tree saplings can quickly grow, according to the lawsuit. Hale said that there are times of year when the irrigation water they take from ...

The Oregon House voted Monday to make it illegal to knowingly sell a product intended to help another person commit suicide, a move that targets companies selling so-called suicide kits that can be bought on the Internet. The bill was introduced after a 29-year-old Eugene man took his own life with the help of a suicide kit he purchased online for $60. The measure would make it a felony to sell such devises in Oregon and would allow prosecutors to bring defendants into the state to face charges. The House's 52-6 vote Monday sends the bill back to the Senate, which unanimously approved it last month but must sign off on changes made in the House. Suicide kits like the one used in Oregon contain a plastic bag that fits over the head, along with plastic tubing that can be attached to a tank of helium gas. They can be purchased from a California company by anyone at any time without the consultation of a doctor - including minors or people with mental illness or depression that could be easily treated, said Sen. Floyd Prozanski, a Democrat from Eugene who sponsored the bill. "Clearly if someone wants to commit suicide using the procedure of a helium hood, they can pretty we ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - A speeding citation issued to Oregon cornerback Cliff Harris has touched off an investigation by the school to determine whether NCAA rules were violated when a school employee allowed football players to use her rental car. Harris, 20, was cited early Sunday morning after police said they clocked him driving at 118 mph on a suspended license in the rental. An employee, who does not work in the athletic department, rented the car for personal use, university spokesman Dave Williford said Wednesday. According to an email exchange between the employee and The Register-Guard newspaper, Harris and an unidentified football player asked her to extend the rental and compensated her for use of the car. She was told that another player - not Harris - would be driving, she told the newspaper. Attempts by The Associated Press to reach the employee, identified in news reports as Mindy Schmidling, were unsuccessful Wednesday.

PORTLAND, Oregon — An unlicensed Oregon dentist who claims self-defense for shooting a man is facing cross-examination by prosecutors in his murder trial. The Oregonian reports that 81-year-old Viktor Gebauer took the stand Monday in his own defense, claiming that Viktor Merezhnikov (muh-REZH-nee-KOFF) barged into his Gresham home, demanded money and refused to leave before threatening him with a knife. But prosecutors argue Merezhnikov was only seeking relief for the toothache that persisted for more than a week after Gebauer had removed a crown. Prosecutors argue that Gebauer planted the knife in the dead man's hand. In his testimony Monday, Gebauer talked about his work as a dentist in Russia, saying he did not seek U.S. certification when he immigrated to Portland in 1989 and later treated mostly Russian immigrants who lacked insurance. ...

Last Sunday morning around 11am, a woman was walking her 10-year-old female lab "Ruby" in the 300 block of Franklin Street in Newberg. Ruby was leashed and her owner Annie was walking her on the far side of the graveled street. Suddenly, a huge unleashed Rottweiler tore across the street and charged straight toward Annie. At the last instant, Ruby blocked the path of the charging Rottweiler with her own body, protecting her friend, her owner Annie who was knocked down by the forced of the unprovoked Rottweiler attack. "There was no warning," Annie remembered. "All I could think of was a monster in charge mode, like a horrible killer, you know, like out of a movie. He was so large, big muscles. I couldn't believe it. He ran straight toward me. And that crazy noise, just a growling, was horrible! I thought he could kill me or Ruby." Annie stood helpless as her frightened pet cried out in pain. The Rottweiler had locked his jaws into Ruby's throat and would not let go. Annie screamed louder than she had ever screamed in her life, "Help me! Help Me", over and over. She was afraid to touch the huge Rottweiler for fear of having her own throat ripped. Within 30 seconds, a cou ...

ASHLAND — Preliminary results from an autopsy on a 16-year-old Southern Oregon boy found dead in Ashland Creek found no evidence of foul play and indicated he possibly drowned. The Jackson County medical examiner’s office found no sign of trauma to the body of Ashland High School student Sammy Hayes. Officials said Friday that the autopsy was inconclusive and that more information may come from toxicology test results in four to six weeks. "I didn't want anybody to be involved, because he was so loved, I didn't want to think anybody had any hard feelings against him," said Alicia Hayes, Sammy's sister. Hayes sister said he didn't like the water, and doesn't know why he would be near the creek, but his family says they don't want to dwell on what might have happened. Alicia says, "I don't know, I'm trying not to think about that. My mom and I were talking, and we decided maybe he laid down next to the creek to look at the stars and he just fell asleep, and that was it." Police aay they are working to find answers. Falls says, "Until we have a final cause and until we've spoken with everyone we need to speak to in this investigation, we're going to not change our ...

GRANTS PASS, Oregon - Faced with tough budget decisions, Oregon lawmakers are tapping the popular medical marijuana program for an estimated $7 million to fund other health programs and rejecting a bill that would have made it much tougher for people to get a medical marijuana card. The landmark attitude adjustment has marijuana advocates crying foul at the idea of doubling the annual fee to $200. But they hope this takes them a political step closer to bringing medical marijuana into the mainstream economy, where it is more readily available and can be taxed. A Ways and Means subcommittee approved doubling the $100 annual fee for patients, and imposing a new $200 fee on growers. If approved, the $7 million raised would help pay for clean water, emergency medical care, and school health centers. ...

BEND, Oregon - Consumer protection legislation is needed to provide oversight of foreclosures and help people navigate the system as the numbers increase in Oregon, state and federal lawmakers say. U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., shared the story of Oregon contractor Tim Collette of Bend on the Senate floor Thursday, saying it was typical of the stories he has heard about people facing foreclosure, The Bulletin reported. Merkley said it starts with the lender telling the homeowner to stop making payments so they can enter the loan modification program. They stop making payments, which then harms their credit and they are no longer worthy of a modification. "So many homeowners are going through a program meant to assist them that is instead turning their life upside down," Merkley said. Merkley said he even called Chase Bank to ensure they check Collette's file to see if there are any programs to help postpone the foreclosure. "We shouldn't have to have a U.S. senator go to bat for us to get some kind of cooperation from the bank," Collette said. Collette, 59, recently told state lawmakers about his struggle with foreclosure in hopes of helping others avoid losing ...
