ASTORIA, Oregon - Hilda Lahti Elementary School in Knappa will keep kindergartners through sixth-graders at home Tuesday and Wednesday to help stem a flu outbreak that has affected an estimated 43 percent of students, along with several teachers and staff. The flu outbreak at Hilda Lahti began last week. Superintendent Paulette Johnson said some classes at the elementary school on Monday were down to four healthy students. “The health department’s take on it is if you can’t function as a school, close it,” Johnson said. The school district met with county and state health officials Monday and decided to close. Clatsop County Public Health Director Michael McNickle said there were no other school districts in the county reporting abnormally high rates of flu infection.

PORTLAND, Oregon — FBI special agent W. Joseph Astarita was indicted for misconduct involving the murder of Robert LaVoy Finicum, one of the occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Family members of rancher Finicum who was shot and killed by police during the 2016 armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge have sued the U.S. government, Federal Bureau of Investigation, state of Oregon and others claiming he was willfully “executed.” The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Portland nearly two years to the day after Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, 54, was shot dead by Oregon State Police on Jan. 26, 2016, along a snow-covered road near the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. “As it turns out, he was deliberately executed by a pre-planned government ambush, after he had exited his vehicle with his hands up,” the plaintiffs allege in their 48-page lawsuit. Investigators determined that state troopers were 'justified' in shooting Finicum three times in the back after he exited his vehicle at a police roadblock, put his hands in the air and then reached toward a handgun in his inner jacket pocket.
A reported witness (who wishes not to be identified), to ...

A national survey by the moving company found 65 percent of their customers packed up and moved to Oregon last year. Oregon was second only to Vermont for the state most people migrated to in 2017. Overall, Americans flocked to western states last year. Idaho came in 3rd in the survey, followed by Nevada, South Dakota and Washington. The top states people are moving away from include Illinois, New Jersey and New York. Twenty reasons: 1) Um, it’s gorgeous here. There’s something for everyone. Cities, farms, wide open spaces. Mountains, coastline. Fishing, hiking, camping. And rain! (Spent the last four years in Phoenix – wanna talk about hell).

SALEM, Oregon - The ability to pump your own gas is now law in Oregon. The Oregon Senate gave final approval that allows self-service fueling in 15 rural counties. The self-serve gas law that took effect Monday and has gone viral on the Internet. House Bill 2482, which was signed into law last year by Gov. Kate Brown, allows motorists to pump their own gas in nearly half of Oregon’s 36 counties. Oregon and New Jersey had long been the only two states in the U.S. to bar customers from pumping their own fuel ? a job relegated to gas station attendants. The new law likely would have gained little notice if not for a CBS affiliate in Medford, Oregon, which asked its Facebook followers to weigh in. The responses they received, both serious and whimsical, prompted the post to go viral over the weekend. As of Tuesday, it had been shared more than 20,000 times and drew more than 18,000 comments. A sampling of concerns: “I don’t even know HOW to pump gas and I am 62, native Oregonian … I say NO THANKS! I don’t want to smell like gasoline!” “I’ve lived in this state all my life and I REFUSE to pump my own gas … This a service only qualified people should perform. ...

Portland, Oregon, is a city I visit often, for both work and pleasure. For starters, the vibes are refreshingly chill and laid back. Dressing casually is the norm, even when dining at chicer spots. And the popular slogan of "Keep Portland Weird” ensures that people from all walks of life are welcome with open arms. Last but not least, the food. From food carts (hello, Nong's Khao Man Gai) to beloved mainstays (like Ringside Steakhouse, Nostrana, and Pok Pok), there’s countless reasons why The City of Roses has remained a top travel destination for both Americans and travelers abroad for years.

But for one reason or another, I rarely considered venturing beyond Portland’s borders – until I got tipped off to McMinnville.

An easy hour’s drive south of Portland will lead you to an impossibly charming town – Third Street is so picturesque, it could easily double as a movie backdrop – that also boasts big city perks and amenities. (No wonder so many savvy Portlanders frequent McM ...

A 29-year-old teacher in Oregon is accused of numerous sex crimes after authorities said she had carried on a sexual relationship with an underage student. Andrea Nicole Baber, who taught literature, writing and speech at Logos Christian Academy in Springfield, started a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student in 2016, officials with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said. Authorities said in a statement that Baber also gave the teenager marijuana. Baber was taken into custody last week on numerous charges, including third-degree rape, third-degree sodomy, contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor and first-degree online sexual corruption of a minor. She was also charged with unlawful delivery of marijuana to a person under 18 years of age, authorities said. She has since been released, according to online jail records.
