Oregon Gov. Kate Brown signed the background check law into effect in May. (Photo: Everytown) Oregon’s legislature is considering a bill to close up a loophole many say aided the suspect involved in South Carolina’s racially charged church shooting last year. The loophole – which allows a gun sale to go forward if a criminal background check hasn’t been completed in three days – is now referred to as the “Charleston loophole,” due to a delay in the background check process that allowed 21-year-old Dylann Roof to purchase the gun he ultimately used to end the lives of nine people in a South Carolina church – despite an arrest for drug-related crimes. Although federal law requires anyone wishing to buy a firearm from a federally licensed dealer to pass a background check before purchasing the firearm, if the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Criminal Background Check System doesn’t process that applications within three days, a gun dealer is allowed to proceed with the sale – although they are not required to do so. However, Oregon lawmakers have introduced a bill – House Bill 4147 – that would require full completion of a background check before a gun sale can b ...

A plan to hike Oregon's minimum wage is moving forward in the Oregon Legislature. A measure cleared a committee Friday and is headed for a vote on the Senate floor. The proposal would increase Oregon's minimum wage to as high as $14.75 per hour over the next six years. The exact amount depends on where you live. The bill sets up three different minimum wages: One for the Portland metro area, a lower one for mid-size communities, and the lowest for rural parts of the state. That's a change from the plan floated by Governor Kate Brown. And the two groups trying to get a minimum wage hike on the ballot have given the proposal mixed reviews. It comes as business groups opposed to a minimum wage hike are launching a statewide ad campaign blasting what they call Portland special interests for pushing the plan forward. The ad targets Democrats who serve rural districts. If the Senate approves the minimum wage hike, the bill would head to the Oregon House. Copyright 2016 NWNews. To see more, visit NWNews. ...

PORTLAND, Oregon The FBI is warning Oregonians to be on alert for a phone scam that spoofs the FBI's telephone number on the victim's caller ID. In at least a couple of recent incidents, a caller has claimed that the targeted person has an unpaid ticket or otherwise owes money. The caller claims the person will be arrested if a fine is not paid. >

The originating telephone number used by the scammer is "spoofed" -- meaning that it appears as if the call is being made from one of the FBI's Oregon offices.

The FBI reminds the public that the FBI does not call private citizens requesting money. There are a number of ways people with criminal intentions can obtain your name, phone number, or e-mail address. The FBI reminds you to limit the information you freely provide online, including on social media sites. Phone scammers typically use fear, intimidation, and threats to get a victim to send money.

To protect against fraud:
  • Never give out personal information to someone you did not initiate contact with.
  • Before signing up for a contest or e-mail distribution list, make sure the business has a policy not to share yo ...

PORTLAND, Oregon – Ammon Bundy and 15 others were indicted in court on charges of conspiracy to impede federal officers through intimidation, threats or force. The indictment is related to the armed takeover of a federal wildlife refuge. A federal grand jury returned the indictments Wednesday, and they were unsealed this morning. Brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy were charged. They led the armed takeover Jan. 2 as a protest against federal public-lands policy and the sentencing of two Harney County ranchers to five years’ imprisonment for a prescribed burn that spread to federal land. Previously, two of those indicted met with the Harney County sheriff and warned that there would be “extreme civil unrest” unless their demands were met, according to the indictment. The four people still occupying the Malheur Wildlife Refuge have now been added to the group being charged. All defendants named in the indictment are charged with one count of conspiracy to impede officers of the United State, a felony.

Cylvia Hayes is gun shy about talking to the media. The only time Hayes has spoken publicly about the scandal surrounding her actions as Oregon's first lady - the scandal that contributed to the resignation of her fiancé Gov John Kitzhaber - was at that tearful news conference in October, 2014 where she admitted to entering into a green card marriage in her past.

"I don't think a person can be prepared to be publicly shamed for a year. I was damaged," Hayes said Hayes is the subject of a federal investigation into possible ethics violations during her time as first lady. The primary question is whether she used taxpayer resources in her role as first lady to profit in her private consulting business. The investigation started about one year ago, and Hayes says she doesn't know where it stands. "I had no idea that the investigation would go on this long. I think there was a part of me that was like, 'Ok. Let's get that wrapped up and done and then move back on. I'm floored at how long it's taken." ...

Oregon scientists have discovered a new species of an extra large spider that measures 4mm in diameter, about twice the size of its cousins. Its huge body size has led to the spider being officially named Cryptomaster behemoth. The spider was discovered in the Oregon's Coast Range and western Cascade Mountains. Cryptomasters are short-legged harvestmen — a type of arthropod that eats other arthropods — with large hanging appendages. Like spiders and scorpions, they are arachnids or joint-legged arthropods. They may be frightening to look at, but this species is harmless to people. Cryptomasters live under woody debris, waiting to capture their prey. That’s how these arachnids got their name — from their ability to stay hidden. Biology professor Marshal Hedin from San Diego State University received a grant from the National Science Foundation to study the Cryptomaster behemoth. But it’s just one part of a larger group Hedin and his team are studying. “This part is about discovering diversity and describing it,” Hedin said. The hunt for these “rare” arachnids spanned several states in the Pacific Northwest. Hedin and four other researchers drove around Californi ...

On Tuesday, PF&R welcomed a new member to its ranks, Zeus the Arson Dog. Arson dogs are conditioned to detect and alert hydrocarbons found in petroleum-based fuel in exchange for a reward in food. After his training was complete, Zeus was certified by a chemist as being able to tell the difference between varieties of hydrocarbon scents in small quantities necessary to start a fire. This certification is crucial when evidence is uncovered by canines and their handlers, as they become a key point in criminal and civil trials. Zeus was assigned to Lt. Jackson, who also functions as an ATF Taskforce Agent, in November 2015 and brought back to PF&R in December. Zeus will assist Lt.
