LEBANON - A plan to build a few retirement homes south of Lebanon has been stalled for a decade but now an important decision is moving the project forward. The Linn County Board of Commissioners has ruled that the 15 acres south of town is not valuable farm or forest land. According to the Albany Democrat-Herald, Bob Morris, 59, and his two brothers-in-law bought the land to build their retirement homes. Morris said he never thought it would take this long - and $50,000 in legal and consulting fees - to get a decision. Linn County Commissioner Roger Nyquist said the case shows that Oregon's land use process is broken. "It has taken 10 years, and I don't have any idea how it has come to this. Is it really OK that government can tell someone they can't add dwellings for family members on property that won't even grow weeds?" The 15 acres in question is surrounded by homes. There are 27 homes within a quarter-mile of the property and 11 properties directly adjacent to it. "I never dreamed it would take this long," Morris said. Over the last decade, in hearings before the Linn County Planning Commission and the state's Land Use Board of Appeals, the family's effo ...

HARRISBRG, Oregon - A man who seemed irrational and had been making paranoid statements fatally stabbed his son and himself yesterday morning. The Linn County Sheriff's Office said father and son were alone in the home. Their bodies were found last night by the man's wife. Darwin D. Stout, 48, and Jared Stout, 13, both died of knife wounds. LaMae Stout, mother and wife, discovered the bodies when she arrived home from work last night at the family's home on Monroe Street. She called 9-1-1. Police say Darwin Stout had begun making irrational and paranoid statements last week but nothing he said seemed to indicate he could turn violent. "It got to the point where he ended up volunteering to go to Sacred Heart (Medical Center in Eugene) to be evaluated", a police representative stated. Neighbor Josh Davis who just moved next door with his wife and sons two months ago, said he was shocked this would happen in a neighborhood full of children. "I think just about every house on the block has kids," said Davis. "We're always seeing their bikes." Another neighbor, Maggie Cooley seemed particularly affected. "Before going to bed last night, I went back in each of my ...

The idea was to have neighbors or anyone passing by to have their photo taken with "Santa" and leave donations.

PORTLAND, Oregon - Portland police got very luck when a routine traffic stop netted thousands of dollars worth of heroin. Police recovered nine pounds of uncut heroin packaged in bricks worth a half million. The heroin was found packed in the bumper of a blue Kia minivan. Juan Casas was arrested and a home search turned up more than 4 pounds of heroin hidden in food containers of macaroni and cheese.

Street value of the drug was said to be about a quarter million dollars. Sergeant Cory Roberts says heroin use is on the rise in Northwest Oregon and in particular, Portland.

PORTLAND, Oregon U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is recovering from prostate cancer surgery. The early-stage cancer was discovered after a physical in November. His surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore said yesterday that "everything went perfect. The patient is recovering well." Wyden should be released today and is expected to recuperate at his home in Washington. He worked through the weekend, voting on the winning democratic side for the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy but on the losing side to cut off debate on a bill to give young illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.

It seems her loot was far too heavy to carry so she called the cops to help her along the way. In an apparent attempt to give the police a good reason to help her, Frazier said she was kicked out of her boyfriend’s house and needed a ride to a transit center. Carrying a handful of duffel bags filled with her loot, Frazier met Sergeants Mike Boyd, who took her to Clackamas County Jail for a probation violation warrant. Frazier’s "belongings" were being held by police for safekeeping but meanwhile they received a call from a woman at the 2200 block of Charman Street who reported a woman had broken into her home and sole several items.
