SHERWOOD, Oregon - A day of seemingly routine deliveries took an unexpected turn for one delivery driver who arrived at 18750 SW Parrett Mountain Road in Sherwood. At approximately 12:26pm today, the driver called into 9-1-1 reporting a barn on fire. He reported to the dispatcher that he didn't think anyone was home at the time. Crews were dispatched and immediately responded to the scene. En route, the crew described seeing a smoke header indicating the possibility of a working fire. The fire was upgraded to a first alarm response that brought additional resources to the fire including water tenders to shuttle water for firefighting operations as nearby hydrants were unavailable. Upon arrival, Engine 33 from Sherwood Station initiated an aggressive attack to fight the fire at the barn and control the fire from spreading to a nearby garage. Those successful efforts minimized the spread and damage to the garage and adjacent home. Crews were able to knock down the fire and remained on scene to check for hot spots and ensure the fire was extinguished. No injuries were reported. In total, approximately 25 firefighters responded to the incident including firefighters from Ne ...

PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) — As a child in Pendleton, Nicole Nicassio-Hiskey had every pet she could slip past her mother. Turtles, rats, dogs and cats all roamed the Nicassio household. As the senior marine animal keeper at the Oregon Zoo, Nicassio-Hiskey's animal interactions have only broadened with age. She works with sea lions, polar bears, tigers and leopards in the Portland zoo. "I knew what I wanted to do as a kid," Nicassio-Hiskey said. "We didn't have a zoo or aquarium growing up in Pendleton, so I would go to the library and soak everything up I could." After graduating from Oregon State University in 1993, Nicassio-Hiskey worked with Keiko the orca at the Oregon Coast Aquarium and in the city of Anchorage, Alaska's animal control department before landing at the Oregon Zoo. After two decades of training all types of species, the zookeeper wrote "Beyond Squeaky Toys" with co-author Cinthia Mitchell about creating enriching environments for dogs and cats. "We figured this out long ago with exotic animals but we have kind of gone backward with dogs and cats," Nicassio-Hiskey said of animal training techniques. "A hundred years ago, zoos had cages with lions pacing ...

WEST LINN, Oregon - Before dawn this morning, the loud tones of the smoke alarm awoke residents of 5547 Sinclair St. in West Linn to a smoke filled garage and fire on the roof. After safely exiting the home, the homeowner called 9-1-1 at 6:44am bringing fire crews to the scene. Both residents were able to leave their home safely without injury.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Thanksgiving weekend in Oregon is expected to end with a storm followed by a cold snap. Forecasters at the National Weather Service say rain and wind are expected to move into the Pacific Northwest on Sunday, with heavy rains on the coast and at higher elevations. As a cold front moves through, snow levels are expected to fall Sunday night, so that means travelers will see snow in mountain passes. The weather service says arctic air is expected to move into southwest Washington and Northwest Oregon by Monday evening, bringing snow levels near the floor of the Willamette Valley. Much colder temperatures are expected next week across the state. ...

CHILOQUIN, Ore. (AP) — The sponsors of the food pantry in the Klamath County town Chiloquin say it's barely hanging on. The Klamath Falls Herald and News (http://bit.ly/180THTO ) reports the pantry distributes food monthly and serves 200 people, filling a large gap in the economically depressed community with a population estimated this year at 735. Since a fire last year that caused $10,000 in damage, the pantry operation has moved from place to place before finding a place with a low rent. But organizers say they're struggling financially, and the current location is too small to conduct rummage sales and dinners to raise money. They say the last of the food distributions could be as soon as next month. ...

Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers, with the assistance of the Linn County District Attorney's Office, are continuing the investigation into the cause of an early Thursday morning two-vehicle fatal traffic crash along Highway 20 south of Lebanon that resulted in the death of an adult female and non-life threatening injuries to an adult male. Both names are released in this update.

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — Scientists and conservation groups are worried the crash in West Coast sardines that has triggered deep cutbacks in commercial fishing is also starving brown pelicans that feed off California, Oregon and Washington. Federal budget cuts have left scientists unable to do the research to figure out exactly what is going on. But the bits and pieces emerging don't look good. "Prey availability for the pelican is definitely something we are concerned about, and we are making efforts to come up to speed ourselves along with other resource agencies," said Jeff Phillips, deputy assistant field supervisor for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Ventura, Calif. "We are really in the information gathering mode right now." That frustrates Anna Weinstein, seabird program manager for the National Audubon Society in San Francisco. "We don't think it is OK for the service to do a high five and walk away from the brown pelican just as it seems to be entering troubled waters," she said. A formal status report required by the Endangered Species Act is due next year, but Phillips said it is not clear whether there will be money to do it. There are so many court ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Sunday Assembly Portland is preparing to launch their first "Sunday Assembly" on Tue. Dec. 10. The movement was started by two comedians in England, Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans. They call their tour '40 Dates and 40 Nights.' They will be traveling throughout the UK, USA, Canada and Australia, to start additional local groups for those communities. "Sunday Assembly is a 'godless congregation', says Jones. "It's part atheist-church, part-foot stomping show, and 100% celebration of life, like a church, but without the God bits. Its aim", Jones says, "is to help people Live Better, Help Often and Wonder More." Comedian Sanderson Jones will be coming all the way from the UK to host the event, and explain the international program.

PORTLAND, Oregon (AP) — A federal judge in Portland has sentenced a Texas urologist and his attorney wife to a year and a day in prison after they were convicted of defrauding the government in a scheme prosecutors said also violated the U.S. trade embargo with Iran. In addition, U.S. District Court Judge Garr King ordered the couple to pay $1.1 million, including $200,000 in restitution. They also were told to surrender $600,000 that authorities said was involved in money laundering. Dr. Hossein Lahiji and his wife, Najmeh Vahid, were convicted by a jury in June of conspiracy to defraud the IRS and conspiracy to transfer funds overseas in violation of the Iranian embargo. The McAllen, Texas, couple gave more than $1.8 million to the Oregon branch of an Iranian children's charity that sent the money to Iran. The donations were used to make investments in Iran that the couple controlled, according to an indictment. The couple's attorneys argued that the donations had no commercial purpose. The indictment described a scheme in which the Texas couple got tax exemptions for their donations to the Portland-based Child Foundation charity, including backdating some of their ...

TUALATIN, Oregon - A move to keep medical marijuana dispensaries out of Tualatin went down in flames because of one councilor's change of heart. The ordinance would have let Tualatin deny licenses to businesses violating local, state or federal laws. City Councilor Joelle Davis surprised city management and Mayor Lou Ogden, who proposed going after marijuana retailers, when she switched votes at the Monday Nov. 25 council meeting. That gave opponents in a closely divided council a majority, blocking the ordinance from moving forward. The change of heart had nothing to do with supporting dispensaries, she said. Instead, it was about unintended consequences. "Tualatin has an eye to do a lot of expansion in terms of business recruitment," Davis said in an interview Wednesday. "I believe having a law like this would be a deterrent." Several councilors warned that this law could be used by future public officials or business competitors to shut down unpopular businesses over small infractions. Other cities have similar business license rules on the books, including Medford and Hillsboro. The proposal first came up in a June work session. Davis agreed that city staff ...

PORTLAND, Oregon — The sentencing date of a Somali-American man has been cancelled by a federal judge. Mohamed Mohamud was convicted of plotting to bomb a 2010 Christmas tree-lighting ceremony in Portland's town square. The sentencing date was cancelled by U.S. District Judge Garr King after the government's admission last week that warrantless overseas wiretaps helped make its case against Mohamud. The court expects new motions to be filed based on the government's notification, according to a notation in the court docket. "If sentencing remains appropriate, the court will reset the sentencing hearing after it rules on the anticipated motions," the notation says. Mohamud's attorneys and federal prosecutors met in the judge's chambers Tuesday. Federal prosecutors disclosed last week that they offered evidence in court proceedings that was derived from warrantless surveillance of a foreign target outside the U.S. under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978. FISA, as it is known, allows intelligence agencies to physically and electronically eavesdrop on U.S. citizens and legal residents suspected of acting as agents of foreign governments.

A tribal majority voted last week for the project. Work on the subdivision was halted in 2003 after remains were found of a man and woman who died more than 200 years ago.
