GRESHAM, Oregon - Police officers and medical personnel responded to the intersection of N.E. 181st Ave. and E. Burnside St. at 8:09 this morning on the report of a pedestrian hit by a car. First responders rushed to the aid of a 46-year-old Portland woman who was struck by a 2008 Toyota Prius. The driver of the Prius, Jacob McLeod Walters, 27, also of Portland, remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation.

Ana Boylan, one of the survivors of last week's Umpqua Community College shooting, recounted her harrowing experience during an interview on Good Morning America on Monday. Speaking from the Oregon hospital where she's recovering from a gunshot wound to her back, the 18-year-old fought back tears as she recalled the scene in her Writing 115 class and the actions of gunman Chris Harper-Mercer. "I could hear everyone breathing hard, and freaking out and crying, and he asked everyone to move to the center of the classroom, so we just sort of army crawled to the center," Boylan revealed. The teenager was only on her fourth day of classes, her brother Korre previously told PEOPLE. Boylan said Harper-Mercer laughed after shooting the class teacher Larry Levine. "He sounded really deranged because he said that he'd been waiting to do that for a really long time, and he laughed," she said, adding that Harper-Mercer revealed he intended to also kill himself. She said the gunman instructed the students to rise one by one and share what religion they practiced. Boylan said that after the first student shared his beliefs, he was shot.

SALEM, Oregon - This morning, Trans Pacific Partnership ministers have concluded negotiations, meaning the United States is one step closer to having TPP go into effect. TPP is a multilateral trade agreement being negotiated by the United States and 11 other nations. Industry leaders around Oregon and across the nation agree that TPP will enhance Oregon's number one agricultural commodity, cattle and calves. Ray Sessler, president of the Oregon Cattlemen's Association, is supportive of TPP and sees that the agreement will help Oregon producers expand their operations. "We believe TPP will provide one more tool in our saddlebags to compete on the world stage," Sessler said. "In the long run, we expect the agreement to add some stability to the (cattle) market." Beef Northwest's Director of Customer Development and Grain Procurement Ron Rowan, says he is supportive of the agreement moving forward.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office 9-1-1 Center received a call Sunday at 11:23 a.m. reporting an injured mountain bicyclist on the McKenzie River Trail near Sahalie Falls. Sahalie Falls is located on Highway 126 near the Clear Lake Resort in the Santiam Pass area and is a popular destination for hiking and mountain bicycling. The trail is narrow and consists of lava rock, large boulders, steep drop-offs and hazardous terrain. Deputies and 19 Linn County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue (SAR) members responded to assist the injured bicyclist. They found Michael Roszak, 72, of Bend, had crashed his bicycle approximately eight tenths of a mile south of the entrance to Cold Water Cove Campground. Roszak had been riding alone south toward Carmen Smith Reservoir when he collided with a large boulder on the side of the trail, possibly fracturing or dislocating his left hip.

Linn County Sheriff Bruce Riley reports that yesterday at 5:00 P.M., deputies arrested Jerry Lee Goodwin 38, of Lebanon, in connection with nine burglaries. The burglaries were reported to the sheriff's office from September 1, 2015 to October 3, 2015 in the Lacomb area, northeast of Lebanon.

ROSEBURG, Oregon - What does a man do with 13 guns? In this case, he kills people. Chris Harper Mercer had 13 guns. He killed people, lots of people. He went on a shooting rampage and killed nine, possibly ten people depending on the final outcome of those in hospital. Dressed in a flak jacket, Chris Harper Mercer brought half of his guns to Umpqua Community College in Roseburg and opened fire on Thursday morning. Guess he couldn't carry the rest of the guns or he'd probably had them with him. Mercer was killed by police in a gun battle and another seven weapons were found at his home. All 13 were bought legally. Police have released the names of the victims, who ranged in age from 18 to 67. The oldest was a teacher. Survivors are telling their stories.

ALOHA, Oregon – A woman reportedly with a knife was shot and killed by a Washington County Sheriff's deputy Friday evening. Three deputies were at the Patrician apartments at 18000 S.W. Shaw Street in response to a suicidal report when the shooting occurred. Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue reported that the woman had been shot three times and was taken to a local hospital where she died. The sheriff's office would not confirm how many times the woman was shot. At least one deputy fired a stun gun at the woman and another deputy fired the shots that killed the woman. Investigators would not confirm if the third deputy involved fired any shots. “I heard the shots, about five to seven, and I just came out of the store and I just saw the officers," said Iris Galindo to a katu reporter. She was concerned about her 1-year-old son who was being cared for by her baby-sitter right next to the shooting scene. “I called the baby-sitter to ask for him. She said everything’s going to be OK. Just be careful, lock the doors and see to the other kids.” The sheriff's office said they are not releasing the name of woman but did say they believe she was in her 50s. The three deputi ...

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Taylor Johns could hardly find the words to describe the horrific and deadly experience she had just been through. The 19-year-old Umpqua Community College student teared up as she explained how she hid in her classroom, listening to the final shots ring out on campus -- likely the ones officers exchanged with suspected killer Chris Harper Mercer, ending his life. “I didn’t hear anything until I heard them shoot him,” Johns said, as she held two candles at a vigil with hundreds of others mourners in this close-knit community Thursday night. Her father, Kristoffer Johns, standing with his daughter at the vigil, said he raced to the school when he heard the news of the shooting at the school. Thirty agonizing minutes passed before he was able to contact his daughter by phone, he said. Ten people were killed in the violence, and another seven were wounded, though authorities have not yet confirmed whether the death toll includes the shooter. Despite their fear, Taylor and her father were humble and proud, surrounded by their peers.

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The sheriff overseeing the investigation of an Oregon college shooting has been vocal in opposing state and federal gun-control legislation. Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin registered his opposition this year as state lawmakers considered requiring background checks on private, person-to-person gun sales. Hanlin told a legislative committee in March that a background-check mandate wouldn't prevent criminals from getting firearms. He said the state should combat gun violence by cracking down on convicted criminals found with guns, and by addressing people with unmanaged mental health issues. Hanlin also sent a letter to Vice President Joe Biden in 2013, after the shooting at a Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school. Hanlin said he and his deputies would refuse to enforce new gun-control restrictions "offending the constitutional rights of my citizens." ...

ROSEBURG, Oregon - UPDATE: 7:20 PM:
The original deal toll has been revised from 13 to at least 9 who were killed, including the gunman, after a man opened fire at Oregon's Umpqua Community College today. At least 9 people were shot to death and more than 20 others were injured this morning on the campus of the College in southwest Oregon. 2 remain in critical condition. The gunman, identified as Chris Harper Mercer, was killed in a firefight with Douglas County sheriff's deputies, Sheriff John Hanlin said. No officers were injured, said Hanlin: "It's been a terrible day." A horrible day for Oregon with a scene and news far too familiar these days. State Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum told NBC News that 13 people were dead after the events near Roseburg, where the shootings were called in at 10:38 a.m. (1:38 p.m. ET), but investigators said they couldn't confirm that number.

PORTLAND, Oregon - At noon today, October 1, 2015, pot will become legal for medical dispensaries across Oregon to sell marijuana, seeds and immature plants to anyone over the age of 21. You can now buy pot to be used to simply get high (recreation) as well as medically. Customers lined up outside dispensaries in Portland, waiting for the clock to strike midnight. One of those buying marijuana was 29-year-old Davia Fleming. She was the first in line outside Shango dispensary, making her one of the state's first legal marijuana customers. "What a great night! It's legal!" she said. "I have ADHD so it makes thinking processes a little chaotic, and I discovered that marijuana kind of helps organize me and my creative functions." It should be noted that there's been very little research into marijuana's effects on those with mental or behavioral health problems, but as a study released in the February 2015 issue of the Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics notes, there is growing interest in exploring the topic.

The Mongold Day-use Area low-water boat ramp at Detroit Lake is closed because of low water in the reservoir. The lake level has dropped below the normal winter low-water level and continues to drop at the rate of nearly one-foot per day. The ramp will remain closed until significant rains raise the water level. The lake level dropped below the bottom of the ramp, which was built in 2010 to reach the lake's 1,450-foot level and to provide access to the water at normal winter levels. The reservoir drops daily about one foot. State parks says the ramp will remain closed until significant rains raise the water level. Detroit Lake entered the boating season with unusually low water back in mid-May. The official Oregon Department of Transportation highway map uses Detroit Lake as the place name. However, the U.S. Army Corps prefers to use "reservoir" as the name on all its impoundments to better identify the fluctuation in water levels that lakes created behind dams normally experience. ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - An American fugitive wanted for kidnapping and rape for the last 25 years is back in the U.S. on Tuesday, in a Los Angeles County jail waiting extradition to Oregon after being arrested in Mexico. Paul Erven Jackson was arrested Monday morning in Guadalajara by Mexican immigration authorities. "He is now back in the U.S.," said U.S. Marshals spokesman Eric Wahlstrom. "We got him out last night." Jackson and his half-brother, Vance Roberts, were indicted in Oregon in 1990 on charges stemming from the rape, kidnapping and torture of two women near Portland. They jumped bail in 1991 and disappeared. Now, Oregon and California officials are working to bring Jackson, 45, to Oregon to face charges, Wahlstrom said. It was not immediately clear how long extradition would take, officials said. He is being held in the Los Angeles County jail without bail, according to local sheriff's department records.

New purchase in Prineville is likely to be for building expansion but other options possible. Back in April 2015, Apple filed an application with the County Court responsible for the area including their Prineville Oregon data center, to expand their existing data center operation by adding two additional data halls -- or, as Apple calls them in its own non-standard terminology, pods. While the application has not yet been approved, the company has moved forward by purchasing 200 acres of land directly adjacent to their existing 159 acre Prineville data center campus. The purchase is in line with Apple's original 2012 plans which included the possibility of a total of 14 data halls on the campus, but Apple has yet to apply for the tax breaks that they currently enjoy on their existing data center operations. This has led to speculation that the additional land could potentially be used for another function, such as a solar farm similar to what the company has built in Maiden, NC to accompany their initial data center rollout there. At the Maiden location, Apple has built out 100 acre, 20 MW solar installations in multiple stages with most of the work on three installations ...

What's happening with The Oregonian's darling marijuana plants, you ask? Well, they're alive and kicking, quite hard. And it's long over due for a progress report. In the last diary entry, we talked about why gender matters when growing marijuana and learned the gender of our two seedlings: one boy and one girl. Since then, they've continued to grow (like weeds) all thanks to some basic maintenance tips from my marijuana growing mentor, weed-geek, commercial grower, Farma dispensary co-owner and (insert many other hats here), Jeremy Plumb. Today, I want to share a few tips on basic marijuana plant maintenance: watering, bending and pruning.

Like most plants, Jeremy said you want to water when the top few inches of soil start to look dry. If you're growing in pots, they may feel lighter weight than usual. That means the plants are thirsty.

Theoretically, growers can achieve good results with tap water. But if we're talking 'art' here Jeremy suggests prepping your tap water first. How?

  • Oxygenate your water
    • Fill a bucket or large container with tap water.
    • Stir vigorously for about five minutes ...

The photo seen here is apparently the alleged perpetrator exposing himself to young women. Fortunately, most of his body is covered here. The Corvallis Police Department is investigating two separate incidents of public indecency which occurred over the past two days. Both incidents appear to have been committed by the same suspect (not yet been identified). 

Note: Two other similar incidents also occurred in the past week. Those incidents involved a male who has been identified and interviewed. The investigation revealed the two cases were distinctly different than the most recent cases and did not involve a sexual component; those cases have been cleared.
