Something was nagging at William Hawley, and it was more about what was missing than what was there. As a Ph.D. student at the University of California, Berkeley, Hawley is fascinated with the geologic complexities of the Cascadia subduction zone, a giant fault off the coast of the Pacific Northwest. There, the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate plunges under the North American plate, building strain throughout the region and prompting fears of the massive earthquake that could strike when it releases. Hawley, however, was distracted by a peculiar region below central Oregon where it appears that a chunk of the Juan de Fuca plate is missing. He wasn’t the first to notice this gap, but it nagged at the back of his brain. Such a feature must be affecting the surface—and he wanted to know how. Now, he might finally have an answer. In a study recently published in Geophysical Research Letters, Hawley and his coauthor Richard Allen suggest that the missing piece is not just a hole, but a tear that’s slowly splitting the plate apart at least 93 miles beneath the surface. “I know that this seems like this little tear is a long way down,” Hawley says. But the presence of such a feat ...

SHERWOOD, Oregon - At 2 p.m. this afternoon, multiple calls to 911 came in regarding a fully engulfed barn that was also beginning to collapse at a farm on Wilsonville Road near Edminston Road. As firefighters from Kinsman Road Station 52 left their fire station to head to the location, they could see a large column of smoke coming from the vicinity of the reported fire. The battalion chief assigned to the incident immediately upgraded the fire to a first alarm to ensure adequate resources were sent to the scene. When the crew arrived, they found a collapsed pole barn that was fully engulfed in flames with several similar structures directly adjacent to it that had not caught fire yet. Firefighters immediately began aggressive fire attack methods as additional resources arrived on scene. Due to the rural location and lack of fire hydrants, water had to be shuttled to the scene by multiple water tenders, which also required temporarily closing Wilsonville Road to prevent any delay in operations. Firefighters battled the fire for approximately 45 minutes, by ground and through aerial operations. The pole barn’s contents were hay, which greatly fueled the fire making it ch ...

Does Vietnam Airlines hate Americans? It seems only one person in their entire organization has a heart or the desire to actually help someone. But even she seems to be ignored by her own company, Vietnam Airlines. Is Vietnam Airlines inept, a cold and unfriendly carrier? The war is over. USA lost. Stop punishing innocent Americans or other foreigners who only wish to help people in Vietnam as is this man, an American doctor stranded in the mountains in The Philippines trying to get home, to VIETNAM! Singapore Air helped the good doctor with his beloved cat for permission to get onboard to Ho Chi Minh City. So, it seems only Vietnam Airlines have refused to help him provide the standard information they demand to accept his shy American cat on their aircraft. The doctor has made complete and total payment online, everything so far they have asked, but he needs approval to get his pet onboard. The problem is that the doctor cannot make telephone calls from his current remote mountain village in The Philippines, where he practices for only a few pesos. He can only communicate via email and online. The phone system in the mountain town is not working. And Vietnam Airline ...

Bud tenders help customers at Serra, a dispensary in Portland, Oregon. This year Oregon enacted legislation intended to address the surplus of marijuana in the state. Richard Vogel/The Associated Press Five years after Oregon legalized recreational marijuana, its lawmakers now are trying to rein in production, fearing the state’s big weed surplus will tempt some licensed businesses to sell their products out of state or on the illegal market. Such diversions could invite a crackdown from the federal government and cast a pall over the legal pot industry. Last year, the U.S. attorney for the District of Oregon put the state on notice when he announced that curbing interstate trafficking was his top cannabis law enforcement priority. Licensed growers have spent thousands of dollars on compliance and don’t want to risk their businesses by selling illegally, said Michael Getlin, founder of a 15,000-square-foot cannabis farm in Oregon City. “The flip side of that is, I get cold calls all the time from people out of state looking to go shopping,” he said — often offering two or three times market price in Oregon. Oregon’s surplus, though legal, is something of a cautionary ta ...

The Oregon Country Fair is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Better known to insiders simply as Fair, it’s a close cousin of Burning Man and widely considered the grandfather of all summer arts festivals. If you’ve never been, now is the time to go. Forged out of the back-to-the-land movement, early Grateful Dead shows, and collectives like Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters, the Oregon Country Fair has become a multi-generational, cultural phenomenon filled with whimsy, absurd, and old-timey arts, dance, and music. It’s a rabbit-hole for the free-spirited and an important part of U.S. summer festival history. And while many people—even some seasoned festivalgoers—may have never heard of it, every summer during the second week in July, 45,000 people descend on Veneta, Oregon—effectively raising the tiny town’s population by some 800 percent. As a twenty-time fair attendee and performer, I consider the Oregon Country Fair to be an essential life experience. I have performed on the main stage with a belly dance troupe, filled an hour of spoken word stage time, and worked in the kitchen of a food booth—which is also where I met my husband. It’s a place to escape t ...

Oregon’s Republican state senators agreed to return to the Capitol Friday, after a week on the run to stop Democrats from passing a landmark climate bill. Democrats said earlier this week that the climate bill, which would have established a cap-and-trade system for carbon emissions, didn’t have the votes necessary to pass. Speaking at a press conference in the Capitol Friday, Senate Republican leader Herman Baertschiger Jr. said his members would return to Salem in time for the 9 a.m. legislative session on Saturday. “Our mission of walking out of this building was to kill cap-and-trade,” he said. “I’m proud of this caucus.” Senators will have a sprint to finish their work this weekend, with the legislative session scheduled to end Sunday at midnight. There are more than 100 pending bills and resolutions that need Senate approval in that time, including state budget bills. Any bill not approved by Sunday night will be dead. Senate Majority Leader Ginny Burdick, a Democrat, said bills on paid family leave and a tobacco tax to fund public health were also priorities, in addition to the budget. She said the cap-and-trade bill was one vote short of the 16 it needed to p ...
