SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Students are facing a rising loan burden, and Oregon's state treasurer wants the state to be able to take on debt of its own to help them out. Ted Wheeler proposed a little-known measure that will appear on the November ballot. Measure 86 would amend the state constitution, creating an endowment that could be used only for student financial aid. It would also allow the state to take on debt to fill the kitty. He wants to start with $100 million. Oregon's college tuition is high, and state support for financial aid is low compared with other states, Wheeler said. "A lot of low-income and middle-class students are being shut out of education and job-training opportunities at exactly the time when employers are telling us that advanced education and training are more important than ever and will continue to be more important in the future," Wheeler said. Wheeler is quick to point out that issuing bonds to fill the endowment is only an option; the Legislature could also fill fund it with a direct appropriation or seek philanthropic support. Voter approval is no guarantee that the fund will actually materialize because lawmakers are not obligated to commi ...

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Oregon Zoo staff say they think a 4-day-old lion cub that had to be euthanized was inadvertently injured shortly after birth by its first-time mother. The zoo said Friday that the injured cub was the first to be born on Monday and its arrival seemed to catch its mother, Kya, by surprise. She was outside her den when it arrived and immediately picked the cub up in her mouth and carried it inside, where three more cubs were born. Zoo vets say she apparently clamped her jaws too tightly on the cub, severing its left rear thigh muscles and damaging a femoral vein and artery. They say the injured tissue became infected and the attentive mom's grooming of the wound caused more damage. Staffers monitoring the cubs by surveillance camera didn't notice a problem until Thursday evening when one cub wasn't moving. Vet staff found the injury, determined the wound was untreatable and euthanized the cub. The other three cubs appear healthy and have been reunited with Kya. The zoo said earlier that the lioness has been an "excellent and attentive" mother so far. ...

LEBANON, Ore. – After seeing reports on KATU TV, the family of a 3-year-old girl who got sick from E. coli is convinced that the case is connected to another case of E. coli that killed 4-year-old Serena Profitt on Monday. Both children were in the same general area just before they got sick. Serena swam in a section of the South Santiam River in Linn County. Then Aubrie Utter had her birthday at Waterloo Park about 20 minutes away and a few feet from a section of that river. They used a water fountain to fill up water balloons. Aubrie’s birthday party was Saturday, Aug. 23, and her mother, Katie Hendricks, said her daughter was sick that very night. “During the middle of the night, she woke up crying (that) her stomach hurt. She had diarrhea,” Katie said. She brought her daughter to a clinic in Albany and just like with Serena she said they thought it was a minor virus and sent her home. But she just kept getting worse, and her mother brought her back in and demanded they do a blood test. Two hours later they confirmed Aubrie had E. coli, and she was rushed to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, just two doors down from Serena. Aubrie was hospitalized for ...

PORTLAND, Oregon -- A teenage girl is in critical condition after she fell more than 40 feet off the cliffs at Rocky Butte, a popular hiking and climbing spot. Responding to reports of a young woman over the edge of Rocky Butte, the PF&R technical rescue team arrived on scene just minutes later.

TVF&R firefighters were dispatched to an original report of a grass fire on 14500 block of SW 148th Place in Tigard. On arrival, however, crews found a different situation with the entire deck and upper story of the residence fully involved with fire and extending into the attic. Firefighters quickly deployed hose lines to attack the fire and had it under control in approximately 25 minutes. The original 911 call came from a neighbor who indicated it was grass fire, but by the time he returned the site of the fire it had grown significantly and involved the home. As firefighters pulled hose lines to the back of the structure, they noticed the majority of the back lawn had been scorched. A TVF&R fire investigator found the fire had started on the exterior of the building and then moved to the interior. The exact fire cause is yet to be determined. No injuries were reported. A red flag warning is currently in effect for the Portland area through Sunday. The combination of low humidity, strong winds and warm temperatures create an environment for fire to easily ignite and quickly spread.

Rivera's roommate, Manuel Managa, allowed police inside their home, where they found heroin in a freezer and $20,000 in cash Last year, the Oregon Supreme Court said that the search was illegal because Managa was coerced into opening his door.
