PORTLAND, Oregon - Tax proposals to boost the budgets of two major Oregon school districts were both headed for defeat as voters decided a number of local election measures across the state. With about 85 percent of the ballots counted, voters in Portland had narrowly rejected a $548 million bond package to pay for repairs to every school in the district, The Oregonian reported. The heavily promoted measure would have fully rebuilt eight aging schools and made smaller fixes and updates at the other 77, many of which date to the 1920s or 1940s. Portland voters approved a separate property tax increase to fund school operations for the next five years, preserving 200 jobs for teachers and other educators. Incomplete returns showed that 58 percent of district voters said yes to that levy. In Eugene, a proposed income tax for schools was overwhelmingly rejected by voters, 64 percent to 36 percent, The Register-Guard reported. The tax would have raised an estimated $12 million for Eugene and $4.8 million for the Bethel school districts in each of the next four years. In Oregon City, voters rejected a three-year, $6 million levy, which is forcing the Oregon City Schoo ...

SALEM, Oregon - The jobless rate in Oregon fell to 9.6 percent in April, hitting its lowest point in more than two years, the state employment department said Tuesday. The seasonally adjusted jobless rate was the lowest since 9.2 percent in December 2008, primarily due to an increase in new jobs, agency officials said. The rate has hovered in the mid-10 percent range for about a year after hitting a high of 11.6 percent in June 2009. The state also revised the March jobless figure down slightly from 10 percent to 9.9 percent. "Businesses are ready to start hiring again, they're feeling more confident about the future," said Nick Beleiciks, an economist with the Oregon Employment Department. Nationally, unemployment rose slightly to 9 percent in April from 8.8 percent in March. Oregon posted the seventh-fastest job growth in the nation, state officials said. The state got a boost of 1,600 jobs in April after a net loss of 2,000 in March. Since October, Oregon has seen "healthy" growth of an average of 4,000 new jobs a month, Beleiciks said. Even so, about 188,000 Oregonians are looking for work, and an additional 7,000 "discouraged workers" have stopped searching, ...

JACKSONVILLE, Oregon (AP) — The burnt end of a joint between his fingers and a white plastic lighter in his fist, James Bowman watched the half dozen young men, shirts off in the warm spring sun, shovels working to the beat of loud rock music, as they prepared the soil for the biggest medical marijuana plantation in Oregon. It is springtime on The Farm, a cooperative in the heart of Applegate Valley wine country that will grow some 200 plants to supply about 70 card-carrying medical marijuana users. Here, surrounded by wineries, bed and breakfasts, churches and a school, the legal side of marijuana operates in plain sight, visible to hang gliders soaring overhead, drivers on nearby roads, and viewers of Google Maps. Over the winter volunteers have trimmed the dried buds from last year's crop, cut slips from mother plants, and rooted them in little plastic bags of potting soil now stacked against the side of a greenhouse. In June, they will plant the clones in circles of loam fed by plastic drip lines. Through summer, volunteers will wrap the heavy branches with duct tape to keep them from breaking. And under a harvest moon in October they will patrol the grounds with Taser ...

PORTLAND — Oregon has been given permission to resume removing or killing California sea lions at Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River. The decision by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration came about six months after a federal appeals court struck down a similar permit aimed at reducing the number of threatened or endangered salmon eaten by the hungry marine mammals. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stopped the practice last year. NOAA Fisheries officials said they believe the agency has fixed flaws the court pointed out in the original permit issued three years ago. Under that permit, the two states removed or killed 37 animals. A report in Portland’s Oregonian says the California sea lion population is healthy, estimated at 238,000, while wild Columbia River spring chinook salmon are listed as endangered. Mammals’ impact small, challengers say But Sharon Young of the Humane Society of the United States, which challenged the removal, said Friday the organization still argues the sea lions account for only a small fraction of the salmon killed while fishermen and other causes account for a much larger share. "This is not a program that ...

GRESHAM, Oregon - Several children at a Gresham elementary school have now been tested and treated for whooping cough. The school principal is now warning parents to be alert for symptoms.

BEND, Oregon - Oregon's gasoline price continue to increased even though oil prices have been decreasing. The statewide average increased a penny to $3.97 a gallon, while the national average decreased one-and-a-half cents to $3.95. That's the first decrease for the national average in over six weeks. Crude oil prices have decreased from $111 a barrel last week to about $102 Tuesday. AAA spokesperson in Oregon, Marie Dodds said bearish economic news last week had investors concerned about a possible correction in oil prices. "The spending pulse report that showed U.S. gasoline consumption down 1% for the week, and down 1.2% compared to a year ago. And then we also had kind of a murky report from the department of energy that showed and increase in crude stocks, but a slight drawdown in gasoline stocks." Dodds, a guest Wednesday morning on Wake Up Bend!, said it can take anywhere from one to two weeks to see gas prices move down "Chances are, if you stop at your neighborhood gas station, that gasoline was made from crude at the higher price. So, gas stations are not necessarily able to quickly lower their prices unless they sell at a loss. So, they have a lot of product ...

A new study gives a much-needed booster shot to the beleaguered AIDS vaccine field. The experiment, led by immunologist and pathologist Louis Picker of the Oregon Health & Science University in Beaverton, showed that an unusual approach to vaccinating against SIV (a simian cousin of HIV) protected 12 of 24 monkeys from a "challenge" with a particularly virulent strain of that virus. Specifically, all monkeys became infected, but in half of the animals, their immune systems drove the virus down to undetectable levels for more than a year. “It’s the best result I’ve seen against the worst SIV known,” says the University of Wisconsin’s David Watkins, an immunologist who tests AIDS vaccines in monkeys and was not involved with the work. “I’m very excited by this approach.” The vaccine contains SIV genes stitched into cytomegalovirus (CMV), a herpesvirus that harmlessly infects many humans and serves as the delivery vehicle, or vector, for the AIDS virus proteins. Typically, AIDS vaccines use vectors that quickly die, but CMV stays alive indefinitely and constantly confronts the immune system with the mock version of the enemy. As a result, Picker contends, the immune system stay ...

Condemned killer Gary Haugen has petition the court that he wants to drop all future appeals and proceed with his execution as a "protest to the arbitrary and vindictive Oregon death penalty scheme that is flawed and broken at best." Haugen repeatedly has made the same point during the past six months. Since the Oregon Supreme Court upheld Haugen's conviction and death sentence in November, the death-row inmate has sent eight letters to court officials stating his desire to drop all future appeals, potentially clearing the way for him to be executed. He soon may get his way. Haugen, 49, was sentenced to death for the 2003 jailhouse killing of fellow inmate David Polin, who was serving time for attempted murder and drug convictions. Haugen was convicted along with another inmate in the fatal attack, in which Polin suffered a crushed skull and 84 stab wounds. At the time of Polin’s death, Haugen was serving time for the 1981 murder of his former girlfriend’s mother in northeast Portland. If Judge Joseph Guimond issues the death warrant Friday, Haugen would most likely be executed in July or August. The Department of Corrections has obtained the drugs necessary fo ...

The video, posted on YouTube a couple months ago titled "Drunk man eats napkin at Denny's" has been identified as Mike Parker, the play-by-play voice for Oregon State athletics. Parker confirmed that he is the man in the video. The video was shot by a group of not too bright kids at a West Hollywood Denny’s, following an OSU men’s basketball game against USC. In addition, while the morons who shot the cell camera video were having a great time with it, Parker himself doesn’t consider it a laughing matter. "The wrongdoing feels deep within the heart, whether there was anything illegal or not, I’m deeply ashamed for putting myself in a position," Parker said with tears in his eyes after Oregon State defeated Portland on Tuesday. "To be in that kind of state, and so obviously terribly impaired from the alcohol that I could not be aware of what I was doing, is very frightening. It’s embarrassing, it’s shameful, it’s humiliating." ...

SALEM, Oregon - Washington state is monitoring the wild pig populations in Oregon, where the fish and wildlife department has ordered farmers to determine the size of the destructive pig populations on their land and get rid of them. The Oregon fish and wildlife department knows feral pigs are a problem. As an invasive species, they threaten crops and cause headaches for farmers. The state doesn't yet know how big of a problem. That's because most feral pigs in the state live in the low-precipitation private land. But they're inching closer to the high-value crop land, and neighboring states in the Pacific Northwest are worried. Feral pigs, like most problems in Oregon, get blamed on California. The pigs are game mammals in the state, meaning hunters have to get tags to shoot them. In the meantime, they root up cropland, destroy hillsides and generally wreak havoc on the environment. A bill passed last year in Oregon requires landowners to trap or shoot any feral swine known to roam their land, or at a minimum allow someone else to shoot or trap it. "Whether or not we'll be successful really depends on private landowners," said Keith Kohl of the Oregon Department of ...

MEDFORD, Oregon - An early-morning traffic stop in Medford led to the discovery of 2.5 pounds of crystal methamphetamine after the driver of a 2005 sedan allowed an Oregon State Police trooper to check his car.

VERNONIA, Oregon - The citizens of Vernonia are fighting over one of its police officers and his friends on the City Council. The disagreement is over officer Mike Kay, who the state says is a dishonest police officer, and three people who control the City Council. Officer Kay was in charge when a 10-year-old Ian Torres-Petersen was found safe last year after missing for a few days. "Whatever it is, if we ask for help, we usually get some type of community response," he said then. Now he’s on the sidelines on paid leave and under investigation by the state. "I would pity whoever got him as a police officer again, because I don’t see him changing his modus operandi," said former Vernonia Mayor Sally Harrison. Harrison pulls no punches when it comes to Kay. "The record shows that he’s a liar. I don’t want him in Vernonia anymore," she said. Her comment could be considered slander if not for the official state investigation. Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training investigators found Kay lied on his 2004 application to the Vernonia Police Department. ...
