PORTLAND, Oregon - The good 'ol days of cheap gas has faded to an iconic image of days gone by. How long has it been since your tires were checked? And if they need air, you'll probably need some quarters because air cost these days. It's not a consumer world. It's all about the corporation, about the glut of a few more pennies to the big oil boys. And while you the consumer may feel like complaining, you started accepting the change long ago. Remember the 1970's? Today, gas prices are increasing every time the sun rises. The statewide average price of gasoline in Oregon increased by 3 cents a gallon, while the price nationally was down a penny. AAA representative Marie Dodds says her organization expects gasoline prices nationally to rise to an average of $3.75 a gallon and with a few states increasing to $4 per gallon. The Pacific Northwest and California usually have higher prices, she says for several reasons including the price of supplies in Alaska, Canada, and the higher cost of transportation. Dodds says Oregon's average price is now $3.68, which is 13 cents above the national average. ...

PORTLAND, Oregon – New guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics say children should ride in rear-facing car seats up to two years old instead of one. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued new recommendations today.

Steve Drew began working on cars when he was just a kid, and for the last ten years, as owner, he's operated Steve's Auto Service in Newberg and is expanding his service and store, thanks in part to the slump in new car sales in Oregon. According to Steve and the popular website, auto sales have fallen this year by 40 percent and the recession has helped Steve Drew's auto service business grow with leaps and bounds. "People aren't buying new cars as much these days", reports Steve. "They're repairing their current cars and that's when they come to us." Since 1988, Steve worked mainly for independent auto shops as a mechanic but all along believed he could "offer customers something extra; better service and better communication". Steve Drew is personable, engaging, an intelligent man who seems to enjoy running his business to "give our customers the best possible service". He doesn't seem to fit the typical auto mechanic stereotype. The impression is that he has an open, friendly, honest look about him, which obviously helps to make his customers feel right at home.

Marion County Sheriff Jason Myers has announced a change in the policy dealing with the cite & release of offenders brought to the Marion County Jail. The new policy, which is part of the Jail's Capacity Management Plan, was unanimously adopted by the Marion County Board of Commissioners. It will take effect on Monday, April 4, 2011. As part of an on-going review, the Sheriff's office has been working to ensure efficient and effective operations of our jail by examining our current practices. The goal was to make sure that our resources and efforts are having the greatest impact on public safety. The review revealed that the long standing practice of allowing cite and release offenders to be brought to the jail for processing has, over time, increased our staff's work load, while decreasing our overall criminal justice system's efficiency. We've seen a steady increase in the number of offenders who fail to appear for court, resulting in warrants being issued and cases remaining unresolved. "Offenders who merely receive a citation, promising to appear, often fail to show up for their court hearing. This results in additional charges and more court appearances, but it als ...

Oregonians and other westcoast residents, even Midwesterners are in near panic to buy iodide pills, Geiger counters and emergency kits. However, they soon find there's little to buy and are logging into Amazon to stock up, and finding many selections there are either out of stock or backordered. Alaska and the West Coast are closest to the site of the earthquake, but even people from Midwest states are preparing for winds to carry radiation from Japan. Potassium iodide tablets protect the thyroid gland from radioactive material by overloading it with nonradioactive iodine. Health experts say taking the tablets was not a good idea, that Potassium contained in the pills can lead to heart problems and giving an adult a dose of potassium iodide to an infant would be toxic. Physics professor Ken Barish at the University of California, Riverside says it's unlikely that the West Coast would be harmed by radioactivity drifting from Japan.
