On Thursday, October 5, 2017, at 2:29 p.m., Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the Twin Oaks Airpark concerning a reported plane crash. When Sheriff's deputies arrived, they found a 1963 Piper 250 Comanche single engine aircraft severely damaged on the runway. It was reported 39 year-old John Gorman was the pilot receiving additional training for an advanced certification. The flight instructor was 68 year-old Ronald Magnus.

A researcher looks at a piece of Japanese debris in Washington. The morning of June 5, 2012, invasive species researcher John Chapman’s wife, who works for the health department in Newport, Oregon, told him he had to go with her to see a mysterious object that had washed onto the town’s beach. Chapman was initially skeptical that the beached mass would be of any interest to him, scientifically speaking. The Oregon police and parks service were already at the scene, checking the large concrete slab for radiation. A plaque said the object was a fisheries dock from Misawa, Aomori Prefecture, Japan, but Chapman only had to glance at the creatures stuck to the plastic to know the source. “I was completely shocked to see all these Asian species on this dock,” he says. That object was a small chunk of many tons of plastic garbage launched into the sea in 2011, after an earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, according to a new study in Science. Invertebrates like the Japanese shipworm and the Asian shore crab — and even a few species of fish—colonized the debris, forming floating islands of garbage and sea creatures. These floating piles of junk traveled more than 4,350 mi ...

The future of US retirement provision may not be found in Wall Street, but 3,800km away in Oregon, a state better known for timber, Nike trainers and microbreweries. OregonSaves, a pilot programme that began enrolling participants this summer, is the first of many initiatives being developed by US states that are designed to provide workers in the private sector with access to retirement plans. The state-sponsored retirement plan market could grow from scratch to $600bn over 15 years, according to Ascensus College Savings, one company that has taken an interest in it. “The need is real,” says Scott Morrison, chief product officer at Ascensus, which has been hired to manage Oregon’s programme as well as a similar scheme for Illinois. He says more than 40 per cent of US workers do not have access to a workplace retirement plan. OregonSaves is an individual retirement ...

COLUMBIA GORGE - Nearly 2000 fires and over 1,000 square miles were burned this year. In addition, $340 million was spent so far on firefighting costs. The flames consumed iconic places all over Oregon, destroying mountain passes and forests Oregonians visit every year for pleasure and relaxation, including the Columbia River Gorge, Mount Jefferson and the Three Sisters. The damage is now just being categorized and accessed, making a plan what comes next. In the coming weeks, state officials will survey the burned areas and determine when it's safe enough for them to be reopened. The first major wildfire of the season ignited in the heart of one of Oregon’s most beloved hiking and backpacking areas. The Whitewater Fire started when a lightning-stuck tree ignited a fire above Whitewater Creek on Sentinel Hills. The fire grew to 11,500 acres, but what will the long-term damage be? The good news is that Jefferson Park, a beloved alpine meadow of lakes and meadow, appears mostly unscathed. There have been small spot fires, but no widespread burning in the trees and meadows. "The fire came right to the edge of Jefferson Park and then kind of got stuck on the ri ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is challenging the state of Oregon over what he considers insufficient state action to reduce air pollution in Portland. President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement has not gone down well with Portland, Oregon Mayor Ted Wheeler. Wheeler joined 364 mayors across the country in signing an open letter to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change after Trump’s June 1 announcement the United States was opting out of the Paris agreement. The mayors signing the letter promised to intensify efforts to meet their cities’ current climate goals and push for new action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions further by an amount necessary to keep the planet’s temperature from rising beyond the 1.5 degrees Celsius target set in the Paris agreement. With Wheeler leading the charge, Portland also joined the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, which includes chief executives from 7,477 cities around world, all committed to fighting climate change and promoting use of renewable energy.

Oregon’s Death With Dignity Act (DWDA) is the benchmark for proposals for assisted suicide legislation around the world. Peter Singer cites it in a recent article supporting assisted suicide in the Australian states of Victoria and New South Wales. So the latest statistics from Oregon – 20 years after it was legalised in 1997 – are carefully scrutinised. An article published this week in Annals of Internal Medicine surveys these two decades. In this time, 0.2% of deaths in Oregon were attributable to physician-assisted suicide. The number is small, but it is increasing steadily. According to a report in Medscape, “DWDA death rates showed relative increases of 14% each year from 1998 to 2013 and 36% annually from 2013 to 2015. Although DWDA deaths appeared to level off in 2016, it's unclear whether that decline represents a change in trends or a temporary drop, as occurred in 2013.” The reasons for requesting help in dying have remained relatively constant. Pain was not a major factor. "I can't tell you why [the increase] is happening, whether it's that more people are aware of it, changes in social norms or something else," said the author of the article, Katrina Hedberg, ...
