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. "We've found this in Kansas City." While Portland still has its good name, some cities had made major changes to compete. Topeka, Kansas informally and temporarily renamed itself "Google, Kansas," during March 2010 as it tried to gain Google's attention for its experimental network. A company group in Baltimore launched a website that used Google mapping to plot the location of more than 1,000 residents and give their reasons for wanting the service. Hundreds of groups on Facebook implored Google to come to their cities. G ...

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. A "substantial amount" of Sandra Meyer's blood was found in a heat duct of the house, said police representative Ben Gregory. Cadaver dogs searcheed in and around the home have not turned up additional clues, he said. "This case is being investigated as a homicide-suicide," Gregory said. The Deschutes County medical examiner said Thursday that John Meyer killed himself with a single gunshot. DNA analysis of the heat duct blood was completed Thursday. John Meyer told police his wife left home on the evening of March 9 to attend a book club meeting at a downtown nightclub. He reported her missing the next morning. Sandra Meyer's car was found parked in the Old Mill shopping area, prompting extensive searches there and in the Deschutes River. John Meyer's body was found March 16.

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 ...

A 62-year-old Vernonia-area man has been jailed and charged with 29 counts of sexual crimes involving children. Columbia County Sheriff's Deputies took Richard Courtney into custody without incident today while serving a search warrant and arrest warrant at his residence.

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. ...
