Giddy the kitty has returned home to her Reno owner, four years after vanishing and somehow winding up on the northern Oregon Coast. Officials at the Clatsop Animal Assistance center in Warrenton, Ore., were able to track the feline back to Bill Tweedy with the help of an identifying microchip embedded in the animal. Giddy earlier this month was flown to Reno in a commercial airliner and reunited with Tweedy, who had adopted her for companionship after going through a divorce. "She wasn't scared or didn't move away when I went to pick her up," Tweedy said of the reunion. "She snuggled up in my arm and she stayed there. I think she remembered me." After the house cat darted out the front door of his home in 2007 and failed to return, a heartbroken Tweedy gave her up for dead or stolen. He now thinks someone in Reno took in the cat and later moved to Oregon. Tweedy, 48, a driver for NevCal Trucking, said he was shocked when he recently found out 6-year-old Giddy had turned up alive in Oregon. "I was really happy to have her back," he said. "When I got her, I had just had a divorce and wanted company. I really missed her company the last several years." A voluntee ...

GRANTS PASS, Oregon - A bill to ban the trade in shark fins used in a traditional Chinese soup eaten to celebrate success is moving through the Oregon Legislature. A House committee this week unanimously passed the bill, setting up a floor vote. Hawaii has already adopted a similar ban and Washington and California are considering them.

They warn that sharks are slow to reproduce and serve a key function in ocean ecosystems, and their survival is threatened by the demand for their fins. Federal law requires sharks caught in U.S. waters be landed whole, but the fins can still be sold. ...

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. Some believe the Currituck will prove a more efficient tool. ...
