PORTLAND, Oregon - Many Oregonians are saddened today as they learn Portland lost its bid to become the city of choice for Google's fiber-optic network, which would have provided Internet connections of 1 gigabit per second to as many as 500,000 people in and around Portland. More than 1,100 cities had made their entries to become the bandwidth city of choice. "In selecting a city, our goal was to find a location where we could build efficiently, make an impact on the community and develop relationships with local government and community organizations," Milo Medin, Google's vice president of access services, wrote in a post on Google's official blog.

PORTLAND, Oregon - Portland State University geology professor and Oceanographer Curt Petersen says debris from the Japanese tsunami is caught up in a large circle, and is currently making its way across the Pacific Ocean. He says it's a system of ocean currents circulating the debris toward the Oregon coast. "We expect to find plastics and Styrofoam bottles and other lightweight material moving in this direction first," said Peterson Another well-known oceanographer from Seattle, Curt Ebbesmeyer agrees. He says a good amount of debris from Japan's tsunami and earthquake will wash up on the West Coast within one to three years. How fast the flotsam arrives depends on the size and weight of the material, said Ebbesmeyer. A derelict vessel could take 12 months, while a rubber ducky may take a couple years. He says the debris will likely flow in a big circle, carried by currents from Japan to Oregon, Washington, British Columbia before moving toward Hawaii and then back toward Asia. Most of the debris will be plastic items, Ebbesmeyer said. Heavier items like cars will naturally sink. Ebbesmeyer and another scientist have been mapping the path of ocean debris for y ...

BEND, Ore. — Police have theorized that a 72-year-old Bend woman, Sandra Meyer, missing since March 9 was likely killed by her husband. He later used a gun to kill himself, Bend police said Friday. The body of 71 year-old John Meyer and Sandra Meyer's purse were both found in a crawlspace under the couple's home.

After the great Willamette Valley Flood of 1996, which devastated Lake Oswego and many other cities in late January and mid-February 1996, Lake Oswego city planners decided it was time for a dam. The basic idea was to control the flow and release of water out of Lakewood Bay. Water in Lakewood Bay originates from the Tualatin River and the larger lake called Lake Oswego. During high water levels or during a food, the plans called for the control of water flow from Lakewood Bay to the Willamette River a quarter mile downhill to the east. City planners also decided it was time to improve the 40-year-old sewer systems in and around the lake with what is called the Lake Oswego Interceptor Sewer project. "It was an opportune time," said David Donaldson, director of emergency management for Lake Oswego. "We couldn’t do it when the lake was up. Now it’s going to be rising 1½ feet a week." The huge $90 million construction of Oswego Lake Dam at Lakewood Bay is a prime example of two good plans merging into one. The damn, neatly coined, "The Oswego Lake Dam Spillway Modification Project", is in the final stages of being completed. Homeowners around the lake are happy because flood ...

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.
