SALEM -- The photo in this story is of a Salem man believed to have attempted to fake his own death to beat a court case. Police unsuccessfully attempted to locate him over the weekend.

Last Friday, Salem police obtained an arrest warrant for 42 year old Michael Rosen of 181 North Street and charged him with counterfeiting and forgery, Rosen allegedly posed as his brother in Salem District Court last Tuesday.

Rosen handed a clerk a copy of what police later confirmed was a forged death certificate with many misspellings, including the name of the cemetery where he claimed to be buried.

A probation officer discovered the problem in regard to the dismissal. He was suspicious. He remembered he had talked to Rosen the previous week and was apparently in good spirits and in good health. Rosen has a long police record including prior forgery charges.

Lady Gaga will be arriving in Portland August 19. Tickets are still available.

Her Monster Ball Tour, which arrives Thursday at the Rose Garden, has been not only a commercial success but also largely a critical one.

And though there's plenty of room to argue about whether she's original or a Madonna knockoff, there's little denying that all the costume changes, all the ridiculous quotes, the glitz, the glam, the artifice have resulted in something we don't see that often: Lady Gaga has infiltrated the culture.

We can jump online and find any fact within a few seconds. We have hundreds of "friends" we barely know, if we know them at all. We have more entertainment options than ever before, but rarely do we watch or listen to much together.

The largest TV event of 2010, the finale of "Lost," averaged 13.5 million viewers. In 1998, the final episode of "Seinfeld" averaged more than 76 million viewers.

Lady Gago was just another girl inManhattan's Upper West Side, just another girl who went to a Catholic school near the Guggenheim Museum and whose website biography ends with the quote, "And, now, I'm just trying to change the world one sequin at a ti ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Tens of thousands of people in Oregon use Craiglist on a daily basis, which is, on the average, higher than most of the rest of the country. Much of the services and people who use the service are decent law abiding citizens and most are friendly and courteous. However, there are some mean spirited and nasty people one finds difficult to avoid. Let's look at one particular criminal first.

Portland Police are searching for more victims of a man who scammed people out of thousands of dollars on Craigslist. 36 year old Brian Beckwas arrested for theft. On Friday a man reported to police that he had purchased store gift cards for around $1,000 from a man on Craigslist. However, the cards had no balance. Police discovered that Beck bought the gift cards legally and then sold them to the victim, according to the police bureau.

Sounds legal so far. But the problem is that after Beck sold them, he went back to the store and reported that they were stolen. The store immediately gave him new cards with original balances. So because the cards were reported as stolen, the victim was unable to redeem them. Police served a search warrant at Beck's Beaverton ...

Have you ever been double-charged by a company? It happens all the time. Many businesses make this a standard practice then have a ready apology when you catch them at it. You pay one employee of the company then another bills you for the same service, usually mailed to you in the official looking form envelope. All too often the unsuspecting customer sends in another check. Or, as what happened last week, the customer pays River City Environmental in cash then sends another payment when the company demanding the double payment Last week a customer called River City Environmental in the early evening asking for help in testing a septic drain field. The employee on the phone promised a technician would call in the morning. Instead of actually calling as promised, River City Environmental simply sent a man out on the job without permission from the customer. Business must be slow.

To make the problem worse, the technician argued with the customer, refusing to perform the simple test requested, insisting that it would be best to dig up the entire distribution box, destroying a perfect lawn, all of which could have cost thousands of dollars. The customer had carefully expl ...

PORTLAND, Oregon – After Kaine Horman discovered his wife Terri Horman paid or set aside $350,000 to her attorney Stephen Houze to represent her, Kaine decided he'd like half that cash amount. Kaine is the father of missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman. He filed paperwork Monday seeking payment from his estranged wife, Terri Horman, to help pay his legal bills.

According to court documents dated July 26, Terri Horman has "tendered payment of $350,000 to her attorney Stephen Houze for her legal representation."

It's not known if any money has actually been paid to Houze, a Portland-based criminal defense attorney. Documents allege Terri "has indicated in a written communication to a third party" that she paid that amount.

Kaine's attorney said that Terri Horman "should be required to immediately disclose the source and amount of such funds."

Child custody attorney Laura Rackner, who represented Kaine in today's filing, indicated that if Terri borrowed the money, and if the loan is considered a marital liability, then the cash should be considered a shared marital asset. That, said Rackner, would make Terri Horman resp ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - The stepmother of missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman, Terri Horman has moved out of the family’s home. Kaine Horman requested his wife leave the house and she agreed. Kaine filed for divorce and was granted a protective restraining order against her. Kaine Horman says he believes Terri was involved in the disappearance of 7-year-old Kyron Horman, missing since June 4.

Three weeks ago investigators told Kaine a landscaper said Terri tried to hire him to kill Kaine. Kaine then moved out with their daughter and filed an emergency restraining order two days later and asked for full custody. So far, Terri has not contested either of those requests.

Terri Horman has not been charged or named a person of interest in either Kyron's disappearance or the plot against her husband.

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.

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.

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.

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,

Billy Moore had just left his mother's bedside at Oregon Health and Science University where she was about to be taken off life-support.  Then, Moore boarded a TriMet bus and got into an argument with some other passengers before reaching his stop. 

Billy got off the bus near his home and one of the boys he had been arguing with shot him in the back. He then crawled home and died at his doorstep.

Billy Moore had just graduated from high school and friends said he was getting his life together. His mother had been suffering from Leukemia and died in the hospital shortly after Billy's visit.

Police arrested a 16-year-old suspect but his name was not released because of his age.
