At the Grammy's, Portland's own young beauty, 26-year old Esperanza Spalding was named best new artist, beating out Justin Beieber, Drake, Mumford & Sons, and Florence + The Machine. Her latest album, Chamber Music Society, sold 31,000 copies but could now climb to Gold. Backstage, Usher diplomatically answered questions about Esperanza. And Bieber, who jumped atop Usher's back as he spoke to media reps backstage, said, "I'm happy for her. I had a great night! I got to perform with my mentor." And Usher said, "Spoken like a true professional." The win for Esperanza Spalding should not surprise anyone here or even in Washington. She recently went on tour with Prince, and has a friend in the white house, namely President Barack Obama. The White House invited her to play there last year, introducing her as "the brightest young star on the jazz horizon." She was excited and nearly overwhelmed at the Grammy's when she met some of the best known music artists, those she had only seen on TV or heard on the radio. "They have a magnetism," she said. "You can feel their presence from a few feet away. It was nice to see them face to face on a human level. I liked that a lot." S ...

SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Gov. John Kitzhaber's budget plan awards tens of millions of dollars' worth of new tax breaks that he hopes will pay off in new economic activity and job creation. The Democratic governor so far has proposed to soften the tax hit on certain investment income, expand a tax credit that provides subsidies for movie and TV shoots in Oregon, and extend a scaled-back version of a business energy tax credit that's set by law to expire. He's also ready to extend a handful of other set-to-expire tax credits and is ready to work with the Legislature on new or expanded credits that will lead to more private-sector jobs. The $78.4 million worth of increased "tax expenditures" in Kitzhaber's 2011-13 budget represents a fraction of the $14.7 billion in revenue — mostly from income taxes and the lottery — otherwise expected to flow into the general fund. Lawmakers have given the name "tax expenditures" to many tax breaks, because they involve the state forfeiting income that it would otherwise most likely receive. Those breaks are just as much a factor in the state budget as conventional expenditures such as paying for teachers, state troopers and prison guards. ...

On Friday, Jan. 21, 2011 at 9 a.m., a 63-year-old woman was asleep in the master bedroom of her home in unincorporated Milwaukie.

She heard a noise. At first, she thought the family cat was being rambunctious. She opened her eyes -- and was shocked to see an intruder standing in her bedroom, rummaging through her jewelry box.

The victim, Sandi Duvall, screamed as loud as she could. The intruder ran from her home to an occupied vehicle waiting at the front of her home.
 
A neighbor witnessed an occupied vehicle containing the suspect flee the scene at a high rate of speed.

Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputies and investigators responded to the Duvall residence and processed the residence for evidence.

Investigators obtained a forensic sketch of the male suspect, a suspect vehicle description, and spoke with an additional witness. Investigators also learned a wallet belonging to Sandi Duvall had been stolen from the home during the burglary.

Several days later -- at 7:42 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 24, 2011 -- a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Patrol deputy attempted to conduct a traffic stop in the C ...

She's scheduled for another round of surgery in an effort to abate the old tumor and perhaps help improve on her distorted features. Yesterday she released a letter discussing her ordeal with a brain tumor. "Hello my friends," Goertzen writes. "It's not easy sharing this picture. After 30 years of being a news anchor for KOMO-TV, I'm dealing with a challenge, as you can see. But I don't give up easily... "You may know I've battled an aggressive brain tumor for about 11 years. They call it benign, but I think that's a bit of an exaggeration, because it keeps growing back and multiplying! "On Wednesday I'll be back in the operating room for surgery to remove parts of the tumor that are growing again. Luckily, I have excellent medical care and have great support with family, friends, and viewers. "The latest victim of the tumor has been my facial nerve. It has been squished, operated around, radiated and generally abused for some time. It's decided to take a little break. Thus, the crooked, sagging face, and inability to break into the wide smile I so much enjoy. "Thi ...
