As large farms popped up across Oregon during the cannabis boom that followed the legalization of recreational marijuana, the state's landscape and economy changed. Oregon declined to limit the number of licenses when the state legalized cannabis, allowing an unlimited number of growers. Last fall, a bumper crop led to a sharp drop in prices that has rocked the industry. Prices have continued to fall, putting farmers out of business and cutting profits for those able to stay open. In an article in Cannabis Wire, an organic vegetable farmer details the ways in which Oregon's lax regulations on legal weed have put rural communities in economic and environmental distress. Melissa Mathewson interviewed farmers worried about pesticide and rodenticide runoff from inexperienced or careless cannabis grows primarily concerned with profits. "It's a Silent Spring moment in a sense," one farmer tells her, "because it is killing the entire trophic system in the forest." The reference to Rachel Carson's iconic indictment of industrial farms and the large-scale deployment of insecticide cuts to the heart of the farmers' concerns: Cannabis farmers may be damaging the environment and ...

NEWBERG, Oregon - Is the bee species population in Oregon declining? There seems to be a real problem answering that question. Tracking them that is. The European honey bee gets most of the attention. Fuzzy bumble bees to glistening sweat bees and stately long horns, native bees are wild critters of almost endless variety. "Let's get out there and collect as many bees as possible, on as many plants as possible," said master gardener Michael O'Loughlin to a dozen other volunteers before the group fanned out to the many flowering plants, nets swishing in search of buzzing targets. These weren't just any bee-ophytes: they're on a statewide mission to survey every bee species in Oregon for the very first time. "Our effort is to go around and to sample all the bees we can and figure out what species are in Yamhill County, and there's other groups throughout the state that're doing the other counties," O'Loughlin said. Experts believe around 500 species might live in the state, but no one knows for sure. Which is a problem, because we could be losing bee species at an alarming rate. In 2013, a massive bee-kill in a Wilsonville shopping center made national news. An es ...

TIMBERLINE LODGE - 30-year-old David Lee Yaghmourian, from Glendale, Arizona, died on Mt Hood in a hiking trip. His body was found by rescuers to Timberline Lodge and turned over the Clackamas County Medical Examiner, who made a preliminary ID that this was in fact Mr. Yaghmourian. The search mission began on Oct. 8, 2018 at about 5 p.m. At that point Yaghmourian's hiking partner had been out of contact for about nine hours with Mr. Yaghmourian. He was hiking the Timberline Trail with a friend, Hayden Krichbaum, when he became fatigued and complained of a sore knee. On Monday, the last day of the hike, Yaghmourian stopped to rest while they were returning to Timberline Lodge. His companion continued on to the lodge and waited for him there. "David needed some extra time to take breaks. I wasn't feeling great at the time, so I asked, 'Is it OK if we meet up at the lodge? Are you feeling good enough to keep going?' He said, 'Sure, not a problem, I'll take a break and meet you there,'" said Kirchbaum. The weather worsened and Yaghmourian did not return.
