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!

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.

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.
