NEWBERG, Oregon - Is the bee species population in Oregon declining? There seems to be a real problem answering that question. Tracking them that is. The European honey bee gets most of the attention. Fuzzy bumble bees to glistening sweat bees and stately long horns, native bees are wild critters of almost endless variety. "Let's get out there and collect as many bees as possible, on as many plants as possible," said master gardener Michael O'Loughlin to a dozen other volunteers before the group fanned out to the many flowering plants, nets swishing in search of buzzing targets. These weren't just any bee-ophytes: they're on a statewide mission to survey every bee species in Oregon for the very first time. "Our effort is to go around and to sample all the bees we can and figure out what species are in Yamhill County, and there's other groups throughout the state that're doing the other counties," O'Loughlin said. Experts believe around 500 species might live in the state, but no one knows for sure. Which is a problem, because we could be losing bee species at an alarming rate. In 2013, a massive bee-kill in a Wilsonville shopping center made national news. An es ...

TIMBERLINE LODGE - 30-year-old David Lee Yaghmourian, from Glendale, Arizona, died on Mt Hood in a hiking trip. His body was found by rescuers to Timberline Lodge and turned over the Clackamas County Medical Examiner, who made a preliminary ID that this was in fact Mr. Yaghmourian. The search mission began on Oct. 8, 2018 at about 5 p.m. At that point Yaghmourian's hiking partner had been out of contact for about nine hours with Mr. Yaghmourian. He was hiking the Timberline Trail with a friend, Hayden Krichbaum, when he became fatigued and complained of a sore knee. On Monday, the last day of the hike, Yaghmourian stopped to rest while they were returning to Timberline Lodge. His companion continued on to the lodge and waited for him there. "David needed some extra time to take breaks. I wasn't feeling great at the time, so I asked, 'Is it OK if we meet up at the lodge? Are you feeling good enough to keep going?' He said, 'Sure, not a problem, I'll take a break and meet you there,'" said Kirchbaum. The weather worsened and Yaghmourian did not return. His body was found about 1.84 miles NE of Timberline Lodge, at an elevation of 8,270 feet at the top of White R ...

PLEASANT HILL, Oregon — A man from Pleasant Hill, Oregon raised a giant pumpkin weighing 2,170 pounds that won a pumpkin-weighing contest in Northern California.

A “perfect storm” of high demand and increased production carried the Oregon wine industry to significant economic growth in 2017, according to an annual study by the University of Oregon Institute for Policy Research and Engagement. The latest Oregon Vineyard and Winery Report shows the state added 92 new vineyards and 44 new wineries in 2017, while expanding planted acres from 30,435 to 33, 631 — a 10.5 percent jump. Overall production also rose from 79,282 tons of wine grapes valued at $167.8 million in 2016, to 91,343 tons at $191.9 million in 2017. Willamette Valley Pinot noir remains the leading variety, accounting for 58 percent of acreage and 59 percent of production. Most new wineries, however, came out of Eastern Oregon and “at-large” wine growing regions. Eastern Oregon — home of the state’s newest American Viticultural Area, The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater, established in 2015 — saw 18 new wineries open in 2017, while the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon saw 13. Total sales grew to more than $550 million in 2017, up nearly 4 percent over 2016. Though in-state sales saw a slight decrease from 593,192 cases to 579,155 cases, domestic sales outside of Ore ...

The Senate just voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. By doing so, senators ignored the outpouring of opposition to Kavanaugh’s nomination, evidence that he would gut Roe v. Wade if confirmed, allegations of sexual assault, questions about the honesty of his answers to questions under oath and serious concerns about his ability to be impartial and unbiased on the highest court of the land. (near bottom of page, also see Opinion by Jennifer Finney Boylan - nytimes.com) Today’s vote followed misleading and deeply partisan remarks by Kavanaugh at last week’s hearing on sexual assault allegations. The vote was scheduled despite an inadequate and incomplete FBI investigation that failed to interview numerous potential witnesses to the alleged instances of sexual violence. “Our fight is far from over. No one will forget the hearings, the bravery of Dr. Ford or the blatant disregard for credible and believable testimony that without a doubt called into question whether or not Brett Kavanagh was fit to serve on the Supreme Court.
