COMMENTARY PORTLAND, Oregon - The 49-year-old unidentified woman who former Oregon Governor Neil Goldschmidt admitted he had sexually abused, has died over the weekend in a Portland hospice. Her mother declined to identify the cause of death but said her daughter had been in the hospice for about five weeks. "She was a good person who suffered a great deal in her life," said her mother. "We’re glad her suffering is at an end." Goldschmidt admitted in 2004 he had consensual sex with the then 14-year-old girl when he was mayor of Portland, before he was governor of Oregon. Neil Goldschmidt's accomplishments as mayor and governor are well known, in fact, they tower over many other Oregon public figures. He won national critical praise for development of the downtown Portland bus mall and the light rail system and in 2003, Ted Kulongoski appointed Goldschmidt president of the Oregon Board of Higher Education. But his sexual relations with a young girl, his babysitter at the time, changed both of their lives forever even though only a few people knew about it at the time. Goldschmidt has clearly admitted that nearly 30 years ago, and over a three-year period when he wa ...

Portland, OR – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley today visited the North Portland home of a family who is struggling to keep their home and unveiled his plan to address the ongoing foreclosure crisis and boost the nation’s troubled housing market. A range of economists have concluded that repairing the housing market is critical to adding jobs and accelerating the slow recovery. "We’re not going to see a true economic recovery until we do something about the broken housing market," said Merkley. "I met with Portland homeowners today who dealt with months of confusing instructions to get a mortgage modification, only to be told 10 months later they didn’t qualify and their home was facing foreclosure. My plan will put homeowners first and foreclosures last." "I hope, as do all Americans, that the economy will improve; now more than ever the average American needs to know they are going to be protected when circumstances spiral out of their control," said Connie Umphress, a local homeowner who is struggling to keep her home. "This legislation will do both, help first time buyers with incentive to invest in their community and help homeowners with systems that they can trust for ...

PORTLAND, Oregon Actress Daryl Hannah agreed to a ride-along with Portland police this weekend as police patrolled various strip clubs and areas known for prostitution. Hannah, an activist against child sex slavery, was in Portland for a weekend conference supporting activists against sex trafficking. Incredibly, she has said she's shocked to learn a majority of the girls in the strip clubs are represented by pimps. Hannah supports a bill sponsored by Senator Ron Wyden which would fund shelters for young women in an effort to help them escape the evils of sex trafficking. She was born Daryl Christine Hannah on December 3, 1960. After making her screen debut in 1978, Hannah starred in a number of Hollywood films throughout the 1980s. She has recently had several notable roles, including that of Elle Driver in Kill Bill, after a hiatus from major roles during the 1990s.

Mayor Adams wants the Portland to once again look at turning the Jerome Sears United States Army Reserve Center into an equipment storage and staging area. The plans to convert the site into a mixed-income housing complex have previously fallen through because of a lack of city funds. Adams outlined his plans Tuesday night at a meeting of the Multnomah Neighborhood Association. He said the equipment at 2730 S.W. Multnomah Blvd should be used to combat manmade and natural disasters and convert the site into a storage and staging area. Most of the people at the meeting agreed with the idea of the plan because the Army currently stores big trucks and military vehicles for training exercises. The equipment might include bulldozers, large trucks, plows and other items used for construction and maintenance projects. The original idea was first supported by Commissioner Randy Leonard. But the City Council approved the housing complex and the Portland Housing Bureau was unable to allocate necessary funds. ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - On Sunday, January 16, a Panera Cares Cafe will open its doors at the existing 4143 Halsey Street Panera cafe in Northeast Portland. "The vision for the Panera Cares Cafe was to use Panera’s unique restaurant skills to address real societal needs and make a direct impact in communities," said Ron Shaich, Panera Bread’s co-founder and president of the Panera Bread Foundation. "Thus, the Foundation developed these community cafes to make a difference by addressing the food insecurity issues that affect millions of Americans." This is the third non-profit "Panera Cares" cafe for the bread chain. The first is in Clayton, Mo., followed by one that opened Nov. 22, 2010, in Dearborn, Mich.

RAINIER, Oregon - City councilors granted Mayor Jerry Cole authority to decide memorial plans for Police Chief Ralph Painter who was shot and killed Wednesday after a struggle with a man at a car stereo store. City Councilors will probably adopt a resolution to allow the mayor to act alone. The Council voted to spend up to $25,000 on Painter’s memorial and use $8,000 received in donations. "By law", Cole said, "we’re looking at those details of what the city can and can’t pay for with public money, because there are some items that we can’t pay for just by law." Painter’s memorial service is set for Friday, January 14 at 1 p.m and will be held at the University of Portland Chiles Center. Those who can’t make it a public visitation will be available at Rainier City Hall on Thursday January 13 from noon to 6 p.m. "In this case we call the chief’s radio number three times and then signify that he’s out of service," said Hillsboro Police Department representative Eric Bunday. ...
