PORTLAND, Oregon – "The Kennedys" miniseries, which premiered on April 3, 2011 and aired for eight nights was not available in Oregon. The miniseries starring Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes was shown on the little-known ReelzChannel network. Perhaps Comcast couldn't find room not only for the series but the entire network, at least not in Oregon. Its decision has enraged many viewers who believe Comcast has yet again rejected Oregon viewers, setting them aside as not ready for prime-time. However, it may not be that simple. The series was available in other locations. ReelzChannel CEO Stan Hubbard said, "We are on the map now. I think The Kennedys' put us on the map in a big, powerful way." How ReelzChannelis one of the entertainment world's oddest stories this year. The History channel made it, yet dropped it in January under murky circumstances amid complaints about historical accuracy by Kennedy associates. Hubbard followed the story from ReelzChannel's offices in Albuquerque, N.M. He saw that Showtime executives reviewed the series and ultimately decided not to run it, so he called that network's chief executive, Matthew Blank, to ask what was wrong with it. No ...

LAKE OSWEGO, Oregon (AP) — As millions of procrastinators scramble to meet Monday's tax filing deadline, ponder this: The super rich pay a lot less taxes than they did a couple of decades ago, and nearly half of U.S. households pay no income taxes at all. The Internal Revenue Service tracks the tax returns with the 400 highest adjusted gross incomes each year. The average income on those returns in 2007, the latest year for IRS data, was nearly $345 million. Their average federal income tax rate was 17 percent, down from 26 percent in 1992. Over the same period, the average federal income tax rate for all taxpayers declined to 9.3 percent from 9.9 percent. The top income tax rate is 35 percent, so how can people who make so much pay so little in taxes? The nation's tax laws are packed with breaks for people at every income level. There are breaks for having children, paying a mortgage, going to college, and even for paying other taxes. Plus, the top rate on capital gains is only 15 percent. There are so many breaks that 45 percent of U.S. households will pay no federal income tax for 2010, according to estimates by the Tax Policy Center, a Washington think tank. "It ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Regulators in Oregon are requiring a mentor will begin reviewing the operating decisions of a Portland neurosurgeon who figures in a Wall Street Journal investigation of Medicare billing and multiple spinal surgeries on the same patient. The Oregon Medical Board released an agreement Friday it said was necessary while it completes an investigation of Dr. Vishal James Makker. He signed the order. The board said it got "credible information" this year about four patients but gave no other details. It did not refer to two recent stories in the Wall Street Journal that have said Makker's name "popped up" when it searched the Medicare claims database for surgeons who performed multiple spinal fusions on numerous patients. The Journal has reported that Makker had the highest rate of multiple spinal-fusion surgeries among 3,407 surgeons who performed the procedure on 20 or more Medicare patients in 2008 and 2009. In those years, the paper said, he did spinal fusions on 61 patients, and for 16 performed a total of 24 additional fusions. He denied wrongdoing, telling the paper he acted in the best interest of the patients and attributing multiple surgeri ...

A single mother accused of committing war crimes in the Balkans was ordered held without bond on Friday to await a hearing on a request for extradition to her native Bosnia and Herzegovina. A U.S. magistrate judge ruled that Rasema Handanovic, 39, who moved to the United States in 1996 and became a naturalized citizen in 2002, was a flight risk and danger to the community. She is accused of killing 15 to 16 unarmed Croat civilians and prisoners of war in the village of Trusina as a member of the Bosnian army's special Zulfikar unit in April 1993, according to witness statements cited in her extradition request. Prosecutors said the witnesses had served with her in the Bosnian military. Assistant U.S. Attorney David Atkinson told the judge that Handanovic had threatened suicide while in custody, and he referred to her suffering a "psychotic event" just before her initial court appearance on Wednesday. Handanovic, dressed in a blue prison uniform, said nothing and appeared calm during her hour-long hearing on Friday, in marked contrast to her demeanor on Wednesday when the judge ordered the defendant to compose herself. Defense attorney Lisa Hay argued that her client ...

Facebook has installed a large array of solar panels at its new data center in Prineville, Oregon, which will supplement the local utility in providing electricity for the 300,000 square foot facility, which was officially opened at a ceremony yesterday. For more than a year, the environmental group Greenpeace International has been bashing Facebook over its use of electricity generated by "dirty coal" to support its huge new Oregon data center – a campaign that continued Friday as Facebook opened the new facility. 100 kW Solar Array The large solar array in Prineville makes Facebook one of only a handful of data centers in the world to install on-site solar power generation (see Solar-Powered Data Centers for more examples).But it also illustrates the complexity of data center power sourcing, and the difficulty in reducing the issue to a "coal or no coal" litmus test. For most facilities, the Prineville solar array would represent a major commitment to renewable energy. The array can generate about 100 kilowatts of energy. The problem? In the data center world, 100 kilowatts isn’t much power. Facebook hasn’t said precisely how much power it is using in Prineville, b ...

Yet another dredge is on its way to an Oregon Inlet to restore the an important channel to help navigable a better passageway for fishing vessels. The Currituck, a hopper dredge that removes sand and pours it into its hull, should begin dredging this weekend, said Col. Jeff Ryscavage, commander of the corps’ Wilmington district. "This may give us a little stay for the summer, depending on what they think they can do," Popiel said. “If the corps thinks they can put a dent in all that, then we’ll definitely hold off.” The Currituck will work around the clock and replace the Merritt, a sidecaster dredge that sucks sand from the ocean floor and spits it 100 feet away.

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 - A Multnomah County grand jury today indicted Parrish Bennette on murder with a firearm, and first-degree manslaughter with a firearm in the death of 14-year-old Yashawnee Vaughn. Bennette is scheduled back in juvenile court to be arraigned late this afternoon. The murder with a firearm indictment charges Bennette of unlawfully and intentionally causing Yashawnee Vaughn's death, and threatening her with the use of a firearm. The charge of first-degree manslaughter states that Bennette "unlawfully and recklessly" caused Vaughn's death.
