SISTERS, Oregon. -- Rescuers are searching for a missing 70 year old man who became separated from his wife during a hike near Sisters. He's missing from the Deschutes National Forest area, 16 miles south of Sisters and east of the Three Sisters Wilderness Area

His wife said her elderly husband was well equipped but had no cell phone. They apparently became separated around noon Wednesday when the he stopped for a better view, and she decided to walk ahead and meet him at the end of the trail. But she could not find her husband, and he never showed up.

The Tam McArthur Rim marks the edge of a sparsely vegetated, high volcanic tableland. Tam McArthur Rim can be reached by driving 16 miles south on Forest Road 16, also known as Three Creeks Road, from downtown Sisters, Oregon. The trailhead for the Rim is located at Three Creeks Lake, which has four campgrounds, one of which is a horse camp. The elevation at the trailhead, which is at Three Creek Lake, is 6300 feet, so expect snow to be a possible issue, even in during the summer months. September usually brings the best conditions for visiting the area.

A helicopter crew helped with the search of the Tam MacArt ...

Who says that a person in their 80's can't change their lifestyle and stop smoking?

Well, not Rose Marie of Port Angeles, Washington. After smoking cigarettes for nearly 70 years she was able to stop "Cold Turkey", a year ago, on her own, suddenly, and without hesitation.

Rose Marie Cross was born in Portland, Oregon and grew up in the Pacific Northwest. Last year she was hospitalized with a malfunctioning Hiatal Hernia and a gall bladder that had to be removed. Her family of daughters, son, and grandkids hurried to her Hospital bedside, thinking the following hours may be her last. There was one complication after another but eventually the problematic Hernia was repaired and her gall bladder removed. But Rose quit smoking even before she left the hospital, not one puff, not one drag on those “nasty cigarettes” she had smoked for so long, a pack-a-day woman who raised her kids through two husbands in and around Portland, Newberg, Grand Ronde, Tillamook, and Cloverdale, Oregon.

Rose and her late husband Ted Cross moved to Port Angeles in the 1970’s, never to return to Oregon except for visits, which were far and few.

TILLAMOOK, Oregon - A seven year old boy will have to live with the idea that he accidentally shot and killed his older brother. It all happened on Sunday just outside Tillamook. The type of gun used has not yet been released.

The accidental shooting took place on a Forest Service, Wildcat road near the coastal town, located about 12 miles south of Tillamook on Highway 101.

The boy's father was giving CRP when emergency crews arrived on the scene.

Parametic staff rushed the boy to Tillamook County General Hospital, but he was pronounced dead about one hour after he arrived.

One reader who identified himself as USArmyVetCMO, wrote this comment:

"Another preventable tragedy. EVERY gun owner with children needs to take responsibility to prevent this from happening. Kids are curious. Keep your weapons unloaded, trigger locks on and ammunition secured (and locked) separately. If you have a compulsive need for a self-defense weapon around your house, a simple quick release bed-side safe is available. TEACH your children four simple steps: If you see a gun, STOP!

>Update:

Kyron's parents have asked step-mom Terri Horman to cooperate with the police but they wrote in their Monday night response they believe she still is not assisting authorities in their investigation.

"We have been briefed by law enforcement and we have not received a response since our request for her to fully cooperate with investigators to assist in bringing Kyron home," they wrote. "We continue to issue our plea of her FULLY cooperating with law enforcement and the investigation to help bring Kyron home as quickly as possible."

One month after the disappearance of 7-year-old Kyron Horman, police reportedly said a landscaper told them the Oregon boy's stepmother tried to hire him to kill her husband, Kaine Horman.

Terry Horman looks like a different person in her bodybuilding photos.

In 2005, Terri placed fourth in the women-over-35 category in the Emerald Cup of bodybuilding.

Terri Moulton Horman continues as the primary person of interest in Kyron's disappearance. It's been over a month since Kyron has been seen.

GRANTS PASS, Oregon - Perhaps pot vended by machine is further down the road but the most recent initiative to get medical marijuana dispensed by those other than the user may be on the next ballot. The measure would make it legal for medical marijuana users to buy from state-regulated dispensaries.

Signatures for six measures have now been turned in before the declared deadline.

The Secretary of State's Office has until August 1 to verify that enough signatures from registered voters were received to meet the required 82,769 for statutory measures, and 109,843 for constitutional amendments. Initiative Petition 28 would authorize nonprofit organizations to maintain state-regulated dispensaries to sell marijuana to legal medical marijuana users with cards. Currently the sick must must grow their own marijuana or pay someone outsider to grow it for them.

Backers of the Initiative say they're confident the 22,000 signatures turned in Friday would put them over the top.

Portland, Oregon - UPDATE - A judge has forbidden Terri Horman, the stepmother of a missing 7-year-old Portland boy to have access to her children or to any firearms.

Court officials say the restraining order against Terri Moulton Horman was granted Monday afternoon by Multnomah County Circuit Judge Keith Meisenheimer. The judge released part of the court file Tuesday.

Horman's stepson, Kyron, went missing June 4, which led to one of the most extensive searches in Oregon history.

Terri Moulton was the last known person known to have seen Kyron. Kyron's father, Kaine Horman, filed for divorce from Terri Horman on Monday and sought the restraining order.

Terri and Kaine Horman have a 19-month-old daughter, and Terri Horman has a teenage son from a previous marriage.

Divorce papers filed Monday show that Kaine Horman had a new, undisclosed address as of Saturday. They also show he is seeking sole custody of the 19-month-old daughter he had with Terri Moulton Horman.

During the investigation into the fate of Kyron Horman, his father and stepmother had been living in their home in the countryside west of downtown Portland, along with their daug ...

Desiree Young described her son as shy, someone who prefers to stay close to home. "He's timid and can't see very well", she said.

Her former husband, Kaine Horman, Kyron's father, was with her on the show. They did a round of interviews with network TV shows to help keep the public informed.

"Honestly, I am a little scared at this point," Young said. "Three weeks is a long time. We need to bring him home."

They say that Kyron understands not to talk to strangers but because he has some trouble following directions in school, they have worked with him on listening to teachers and parents.

When asked if Kyron might have left the school with an adult he may not have known, his mother said,

"I can't say he wouldn't because he knew it's a stranger danger situation.,I don't know if he would recognize that."

It was the third public appearance by the two since Kyron was last seen on June 4 at his school.
