Oregon sheriffs oppose driver-license measure
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A group of Oregon sheriffs is opposing a move to grant driving privileges for people who can't prove they're legally in the United States.

Clatsop County Sheriff Tom Bergin said Thursday that 28 of 36 sheriffs urge a no vote to overturn a law the Legislature passed.

The sheriffs were neutral when the Legislature voted.

Bergin says the state risks issuing driving cards to people using them for false identities.

He wouldn't name the 28 sheriffs.

The sheriffs' decision complicates efforts by proponents of the law. They also say they're motivated by public safety concerns.

The law's proponents say people will drive whether they can get a license or not, so it's safer to have them take a driving test. They say the law requires driving applicants to prove their identities.

Oregon teens get break, avoid state driving test
MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — Teenagers in Southern Oregon getting ready to drive are taking advantage of a break the Legislature has granted: Complete a state-approved driver education program and be spared the stress of a state driving test.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports enrollment at driving schools has increased since the provision went into effect in January.

The new provision applies to teenagers 15 to 17 who have a provisional, Class C instruction permit, 50 hours of adult-supervised driving experience, and a passing grade in a state-certified driver education class.

It gets them out of a 15-minute, $9 state road test. But they still have to take the state's written exam.

Teens who don't take a driver education class must log 100 hours behind the wheel and take both tests.

Water from Oregon reservoir tests clean

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — There's nothing wrong with the 38 million gallons of water being flushed away from a reservoir in an Oregon city.


Portland Water Bureau spokeswoman Jaymee Cuti said Thursday that test samples of water taken from the reservoir came back clean.


The city of Portland decided to discard the water after a 19-year-old man was videotaped urinating into the reservoir early Wednesday.


Though acknowledging the urine posed little risk, Portland officials said they have plenty of water to meet demand and didn't want to deliver deliberately tainted water to customers.


The teenager was cited for trespassing and public urination. The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office will decide whether to pursue criminal charges.

Judge rules SAFE Act does not violate Second Amendment
ALBANY (CNYCENTRAL) -- A trial-level judge in Albany has ruled that New York's new gun law does not violate the Second Amendment.

The decision announced Wednesday from state Supreme Court Justice Thomas McNamara also rejected legal claims that the SAFE Act was improperly pushed through the legislature by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Cuomo issued a "message of necessity" that allowed lawmakers to vote on the measure without the usual waiting period for the consideration of bills.

 The law bans high-capacity magazines and many semi-automatic firearms.
“New Yorkers deserve to live in a state with a strong set of procedures in place to protect them from gun violence. Today, the State Supreme Court agreed with my office that the SAFE Act established those necessary safeguards without infringing on the rights of responsible gun owners, and upheld New York’s comprehensive law. We will continue to defend and expand our state’s efforts to ensure the safety of all New Yorkers by keeping guns out of dangerous hands,” said New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in a statement to the media.

Plaintiff Robert Schulz claims the law violates state and federal constitutional protections on gun ownership. He also says Cuomo's emergency justification was false. McNamara ruled that Schulz failed to make his case.

Schulz plans to appeal the ruling to the Court of Appeals, the state's highest court.

Utah police enlist FBI to help in baby death case
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah authorities are enlisting the help of the FBI to analyze DNA from seven babies found dead in the garage of a woman who has been arrested on six counts of murder.

Pleasant Grove Police Capt. Mike Roberts said Thursday that none of the labs in Utah can analyze the type of DNA that has been taken from the tiny corpses, which were found in various stages of decomposition.

Authorities are hoping DNA will reveal who the parents are.

The 39-year-old Megan Huntsman is being held on $6 million bail. She told police that she killed six of the babies from 1996-2006. One was stillborn.

Her estranged husband lived with her during the decade she says this happened but was in federal prison on drug charges from 2006 until January.
