PORTLAND, Oregon - Wayne Arthur Silsbee eluded authorities for 23 years. He was wanted by the FBI for "multiple incidents of sexual assault" between September 1995 and April 1996 involving girls between 8 and 10 years old. The FBI said Silsbee knew each of the victims through babysitting for them or taking them to events. Friday, the now-62-year-old man walked into the Oregon City Police Department and turned himself in, the FBI said. It is not clear why, after 23 years, Silsbee decided to stop running. Charges against Silsbee include sodomy, sexual abuse, unlawful penetration and endangering the welfare of a child, online jail records show. The assaults allegedly occurred between September 1995 and April 1996 in Clackamas County, according to the FBI. The FBI said it obtained a federal arrest warrant charging him with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution that was issued on September 1996. Silsbee's first court appearance is scheduled for Monday. Authorities are asking for anyone who has had any contact with Silsbee over the past 23 years to call the Oregon City tip line: 503-496-1616.

Just before 4 p.m. today, an off-duty Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue firefighter noticed smoke coming from a home on NE Sunny Acres Lane in Newberg as he was driving in the area. He stopped and confirmed that the house was on fire and called 911. With the off-duty firefighter’s detailed size-up, the battalion chief heading to the scene was able to immediately upgrade the incident to a first-alarm to ensure enough resources would be sent to the scene. Initial incoming crews began aggressive fire attack methods. Due to a lack of hydrants in the area, water tenders had to shuttle water to the scene. The fire took over an hour to extinguish because of how quickly it had spread throughout the house. Firefighters did a search of the house and determined that the family was not home when the fire broke out. Crews were able to rescue two dogs and one cat. Unfortunately, a second cat was found deceased as a result of the fire. The house experienced significant fire, smoke and water damage and is not habitable.

More than 3,000 stem samples contributed by hundreds of Oregon cannabis farmers allowed Phylos Bioscience to map the genome of cannabis plants, each plant a star in a constellation of weed strains. The "genetic galaxy project" made Portland-based Phylos one of Oregon's most prominent cannabis-related companies. But when Phylos announced last week it would launch its own breeding program—pursuing mildew-resistant strains, stronger hemp that sequesters more carbon, and high-THC, high-terpene flowers—local cultivators screamed foul. They had given Phylos so much DNA, many felt the company had misled growers to gain a competitive advantage in the industry. In the past, Phylos said it had no plans to breed plants. Cannabis growers responded to the move with allegations of theft. Phylos co-founder Mowgli Holmes says that's not true—and not possible. "We can't steal their actual plants," Holmes says. "We wouldn't do that. It would be illegal to do that. And, scientifically, if you have a piece of dead [plant] material, you can't bring it back to life. That would be like bringing a person back from a fingernail." But the company's reassurances that it won't be using the DNA ...

SALEM, Oregon — A U.S. judge in Oregon said Tuesday he intends to at least partially block a rule change by President Donald Trump's administration that could cut off federal funding for providers who refer patients for an abortion, though the scope of his decision remains to be seen. U.S. District Judge Michael McShane made the comments after more than three hours of arguments in a lawsuit brought by 20 states and the District of Columbia, The Oregonian reported. The states said the rule change, which takes effect May 3, is an attack on Planned Parenthood and a violation of the Affordable Care Act. Under the Trump administration's new policy, health care providers that receive federal funding would be barred from referring patients for an abortion. Programs that receive the money would also have to be in a separate physical space from facilities where abortion is performed. 'At the heart of these rules is an arrogant assumption that the government is better suited to direct women's health care than their providers,' Oregon Public Broadcasting quoted the judge as saying. ...
