Southern Oregon University's decision six months ago to remove a 20-year-old student with Down syndrome from an art class stirred controversy in the press and in campus dialogue, and some disabilities advocates have accused the university of discrimination. However, behind the scenes, SOU provides accommodations for more than 400 students with physical and/or learning disabilities, ranging from hearing impairments to Asperger's syndrome. The number of students served by the university's Disability Resources has more than tripled in the past six years, said Shawn Foster, SOU assistive technology specialist. They now account for more than 6 percent of the university's 6,500-member student body. The number of students with disabilities is actually higher, probably between 9 and 11 percent, as not all students with disabilities need accommodations. SOU's small class sizes, acceptance of differences and affordable price are some of the reasons students said they chose the university over others. "The numbers are increasing everywhere because of increased diagnosis, more services and more acceptance and understanding," Foster said. "There has been a societal shift in the past ...

OREGON CITY, Oregon - A prosecutor charged Friday that an Oregon City couple watched a growth over their infant daughter's left eye balloon into a golf ball-sized bulge but didn't seek medical treatment because that conflicted with their religious practices. In her opening statement, prosecutor Christine Landers said the child's father, Timothy Wyland, told a detective that "sometimes God heals, and sometimes God lets children die." Timothy and Rebecca Wyland are members of the Followers of Christ, a congregation that relies on faith healing. They were charged with first-degree criminal mistreatment after the growth over their daughter Alayna's eye went untreated until a court ordered her taken to a doctor. Defense lawyer John Neidig told the Circuit Court jury that the couple are loving parents who became victims of overzealous child welfare workers at the Oregon Department of Human Services. He says the couple believed the growth would shrink and then vanish as their daughter grew. The little girl, now 1½ years old, has improved under court-ordered medical treatment for a hemangioma, an abnormal buildup of blood vessels. She remains in state custody but lives with her ...

SALEM, Ore.— The door to the room was locked, and there was no response as Jake Klonoski knocked, looking for his younger brother. He picked the lock and made a grim discovery: his dead brother lying on the bed, his head covered in a plastic bag connected by a tube to a helium tank. He had gassed himself to death using a suicide kit he learned about online and ordered through the mail from a woman in California. "Somewhere in her cash register is a check for $60 from my brother for his life," Jake Klonoski, 30, said of the suicide kit vendor. The death of 29-year-old Nick Klonoski has prompted Oregon lawmakers to consider outlawing the sale of suicide kits as they respond to a disturbing twist on the assisted suicide debate in the state. Law enforcement officials are also looking into the 91-year-old woman who sold the "helium hood" that killed Klonoski, with agents raiding her California home on Wednesday. The Oregon legislation, prompted by a March story in The Register-Guard of Eugene about Klonoski's death, would make it a felony to sell or transfer "any substance or objects to another person knowing" that person plans to use it to kill themselves. The proposal unan ...

SALEM, Oregon - Faith healing could be dropped as a legal defense to murder or manslaughter under a bill up for a vote in the Oregon Senate. The measure was drafted largely in response to the deaths of children among members of the Followers of Christ Church in Oregon City, who rely on spiritual treatments instead of medical care. An Oregon City couple who belong to the church are facing trial this week on criminal mistreatment charges for failing to seek medical care for their infant daughter while another couple were convicted last year of criminally negligent homicide in the 2008 death of their teenage son. In March 2008 Carl and Raylene Worthington, members of the Followers of Christ church in Oregon City, Oregon, opted to practice faith healing rather than turning to evidence-based medicine in treating their 15 month old daughter Ava. Prosecutors said that the child’s blood infection could have been easily treated with antibiotics and the couple were charged with manslaughter and with criminal mistreatment. The defence argued that the Worthington’s sincerely believed that Ava’s health was improving. Additionally, Oregon lawmakers have noted a pattern of infant morta ...

Fifteen Salem residents will showcase their backyards in the very first Capital City Chicken Coop & Garden Tour on June 19, 2011. The event will be hosted by Chickens In The Yard (CITY), the group responsible for legalizing backyard chickens in Oregon's capital city, and Friends of Salem's Saturday Market (FSSM), a non-profit organization that promotes local, sustainable agriculture. Local food production has become increasingly popular. With Salem's new chicken-keeping ordinance now in effect, some urban homesteaders are eager to show off the latest addition to their backyard ecosystem, egg-laying hens and the coops in which they live. A small backyard flock can help city dwellers be more self-reliant, provide educational opportunities for children, and supply gardeners with fertilizer and natural pest control. Annual coop tours are held in Seattle, Boise, Las Vegas and many more cities across the country. They're not only common, but also extremely popular. More than 1,500 visitors attended Austin's 2010 coop tour and more than 700 tickets were sold to Portland's Tour de Coop in 2010. Visitors to the tour sites will see a variety of garden and coop styles, including "ch ...

The film will debut on May 23, 2011 at 5.30pm at The Academy Theater, 7818 SE Stark Street, Portland, OR 97215. FREE WORLD follows The Journey of Repentance, an 18-person, multi-generational, interfaith delegation from Washington State on their journey to Japan to interact with atomic bomb survivors and commemorate the 64th anniversaries of the bombings. The delegation formed around 81-yr-old Jesuit priest Bill "Bix" Bichsel, S.J., who lives by the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi. Prior to departing for Japan, the group was confronted by many Tacoma locals in opposition to the concept of the trip. While in Japan, the Journey of Repentance met with key religious figures of the Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist order and with Steven Leeper, a chairperson of the Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation, to learn about grassroots and mainstream ways to abolish nuclear weapons. The delegation's ultimate goal is to spread awareness of the nuclear weapon stockpile in the Puget Sound and to abolish nuclear weapons.

Longview, Washington - Sheriff Detectives concluded their 2 month investigation today with the arrests of Jeffrey and Rebecca Trebilcock for multiple counts of Criminal Treatment and Felony assault on their 4 adoptive children. The investigation began in early March when they were contacted by Washington State Children Protective Services. The initial report indicated the 13 year old boy, Joel Treblicock, was being treated by Doernbechers Hospital for several broken ribs, severe malnutrition, hypothermia, bradycardia, cachexia (wasting) to be seriously malnourished. While Joel was 13 years old, he was only 4' 4" and weighed only 49 lbs. Detectives worked closely with Child Protective Services, finding adopted daughters, Amy, 11yrs, Natasha 12 yrs, Tamika 10 yrs, and Ghislaine, were also underweight and diagosed as being in "neglect" by a pediatric doctor. All 5 children were placed in to protective custody. The children were seen by Doctor Blaine Tolby in 2008 and at this time the parents were warned that Joel's medical condition was perhaps quite life-threatening and advised them not to postpone a complete medical work up. The children told detectives that the parents ...
