Police were searching a waterfront neighborhood along the Oregon Coast today for the owner of a truck suspected of shooting a police officer who pulled him over for speeding Sunday night. David Anthony Durham, 43, of Portland was under investigation in connection with the Sunday night shooting of Lincoln City police Officer Steven Dodds, who remained in critical condition, Newport police Chief Mark Miranda said. Dodds was shot multiple times shortly after he stopped the truck in Lincoln City, about 40 miles north of Waldport. Dodds did not return fire but was able to call in his own officer down report, Lincoln City police Lt. Jerry Palmer said. The scene was captured on a patrol car video camera, but few details were being released. Dodds, 45, a six-year veteran of Lincoln City police who was named officer of the year in 2010, underwent surgery at Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland. Police previously identified Durham as the registered owner of the 1984 Dodge truck stopped by Dodds, and said they wanted to locate him to make sure he was safe and find out if he had any information about the shooting. Miranda later said the investigation was focused on Durham. "W ...

PORTLAND, Ore. – The search for the Portland man accused of shooting a police officer before fleeing into the woods moved past its fifth day Thursday, while the victim's daughter says her dad is steadily improving. Lincoln City Officer Steven Dodds has been hospitalized at Portland's Legacy Emanuel Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds since Sunday's shooting. Megan Dodds said Thursday her father has turned his head toward her and squeezed her hand. "He's a strong guy and so stubborn. I know he's not going to let himself down on this one," she said. Authorities are still looking for David Anthony Durham, who they believe shot Dodds on Sunday night before leading police on a speed chase on the Oregon Coast. Durham fled into on foot and is still at large. Durham is described by his brother, Michael, as an avid outdoorsman who designed his own camouflage clothing. Police say he may be holed up in a vacation home in a secluded neighborhood less than a block from the Pacific Ocean. Officials have searched more than 250 homes for Durham, a 43-year-old former landscaper who family members say had become delusional after taking pain medication for an injured shoulder. ...

Pierce County Commissioner Mark Gelman denied her request for help, stating it did not meet the statute. Georgia Gunzer was stabbed to death Saturday morning in her apartment. Her daughter was at the home, along with friends for a sleep over. Cydney Marckmann, Georgia Gunzer’s friend said, "I feel very strongly that our system failed her. She was trying to do everything the right way and was shut down." Writing the court, Gunzer said she was afraid of Bell who was a recently released felon who had hit her in the past. She told the court Bell hit her in 2004 and had violated protection orders in the past. "I am worried because he gets out of work release in three weeks," Gunzer told the court. "He has already been calling me over and over and I am trying to get a parenting plan in order right now, and do not trust him."

Moonlighting used to indicate your boss had no clue what you were doing after work. But for others these days, it’s just a way of achieving The American Dream. Moonlighting trends are linked to a growing separation among the rich and poor, as well as a general sense that family are working more for less. The American Dream, a mostly elusive and certainly overused phrase, can mean a land in which life could and should be better, richer, fuller. It’s a dream opportunity for everyone based purely and simply on their meritorious ability. The American Dream isn't always a dream of cars and expensive homes, not always about high wages. To many it’s a degree of self satisfaction, contentment if you will, the peace one has when reaching for a goal to which they are inherently able to accomplish. And to some degree, it’s a kind of acknowledged by their peers for what and who they are, regardless of where they were born or the pigment of their skin. And it’s a down-payment on a personal legacy, not just for glory but for whom they are in the eyes of those who love them. The American Dream, inevitably, is contentment. The Department of Labor defines moonlighting as working more th ...

WALDPORT, Oregon - Police combed the forested peninsula around Alsea Bay for a man suspected of shooting and critically injuring an officer, leading a gunfire-filled chase and then disappearing into the woods. Searchers are focused on a peninsula that juts into Alsea Bay and stretches about a mile at its widest point. They're looking for a man believed to be Anthony Durham, 43, of Portland, who is the registered owner of a 1984 Dodge truck stopped for speeding Sunday night by Lincoln City police Officer Steven Dodds. State police said Durham is considered armed and dangerous and may be accompanied by his 40-pound, black and white dog named Huckleberry. "He's out there hiding somewhere," Waldport city manager Nancy Leonard said of the suspect. "There's a lot of forested area, it's very easy to lose yourself." Police have so far refused to release any additional details about the search, but residents on the peninsula said Tuesday they spent a restless night waiting to hear news of the man's capture. "He's going to get more desperate," said Sean Nutting, who lives in the area. "He already tried to kill a cop, there (isn't) much he's scared of at this point." State c ...

Next month, Beaverton will begin a program to ticket drivers who do not come to a complete stop when they turn right on red. It'll cost them $382. Other cities in Oregon are getting the technology or already have it. All police will need is a photo of the car in the intersection when the light is red. The problem for police previously has been that a picture of a car turning right on red may be a legal turn if the driver comes to a complete stop. A photo cannot show if a car has stopped. To combat the problem, Oregon has gone to video technology inside the lights that can show whether a car stopped. ...

MAPLE VALLEY, Washington - Tom Rider reported to police that his lovely 33-year-old wife, Tanya Rider had not returned home from the graveyard shift job she had recently started at a Fred Meyer supermarket in near Bellevue, Washington. He would later discover that on driving home from her job, she had run off the road, through a ditch, down a ravine, trapping her inside her car for eight long days. Her experience of 2007 has now been written into a book by Tanya Rider herself, titled, "Missing, Without A Trace, 8 days of Horror." Her car ran off the road on her way home from work in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue, Washington last September 19. Pinned inside, she couldn't get out or get anyone to help her for eight days.

The Oregon State Department Of Justice has decided not to file criminal charges against Yamhill County commissioner Leslie Lewis. She was accused of violated Oregon law by videotaping county commissioner endorsement interviews conducted by Newberg's Chehalem Chamber of Commerce. The Department apparently could not prove Lewis intended to secretly videotape the meetings of fellow commissioner Mary Stern. Lewis has refused to comment about the investigation but released a statement after she discovered the justice department would not be filing criminal charges. Violation is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a jail term of up to one year and fine of up to $6,250. And divulging the recording to another represents a Class A misdemeanor with the same penalty. "I did not violate the statute," she said. "I want to thank everyone for their prayers and encouragement." The department apparently set a tougher standard to prove all participants were unaware of the taping. ...

PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - One act of kindness can travel across an entire ocean and warm the hearts of strangers. A little black bag lost in a Paris taxicab and its six-week journey to its owner in Pendleton illustrates the strength of one honest man and a single good deed. Richard and Marilyn Smiley traveled to France in late November. On their first morning in Paris, the Pendleton couple walked a few blocks from their hotel and hailed a cab. Climbing in, Marilyn set her black daypack on the seat beside her. The nylon bag contained a Canon camera, sunglasses, notebook, lip gloss, gloves and a copy of Rick Steves' "Paris 2011." Outside their window, wind blustered and the temperature hovered just above freezing. The cabbie stayed quiet during most of the trip, speaking just a few words of broken English. The driver was one of more than 15,500 cabbies who cruise the city each day. Most own their own vehicles and operate their businesses from home. Though cabs come in all makes and models, they all carry identical light bars, marked with "Taxi Parisiens," that light up when the cab is available. Their driver stopped his white van near the hotel where Richard would serve as o ...

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 ...
