By Aaron Nilsson/KTVL.comJACKSON COUNTY, Ore. -- In an effort to help the residents in Weed, Southern Oregon Subaru will match dollar for dollar--up to $1,000--to buy clothing and personal items.
Other agencies and organizations are lending a hand.United Way, opened an account anyone can donate to at U.S. Bank, called "United Way- Weed." 
Hope Community Church, off of Lassen Lane in Mount Shasta, is collecting items.
Garrison's Home Furnishings on Crater Lake Highway in Central Point is also serving as a drop off point for donations.
Students of a Spanish teacher at Crater High School in Central Point said they are trying to get everyone involved, including the football team.
The students are collecting clothes, food, water and toiletries at the high school until Friday with everything heading down on Saturday.
Students said they can't imagine losing everything so suddenly and how difficult that must be, but they said they would appreciate any help from strangers if they ever needed it.

"To have someone who cares, even if they don't know me, to care enough to bring me simple like a roll of toilet paper, or a tube of toothpaste. It means a lot, especially when everything you have is gone. It's the little things that really make a difference," Junior, Daniel Butler, said.
Crater Comet students said it's wonderful seeing how much the entire community is helping people they probably don't even know.

Study: Americans endure unwanted care near death
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — An Institute of Medicine report says Americans often suffer needless discomfort and undergo unwanted and costly care as they die.

The "Dying in America" study released Wednesday was done by a panel of 21 experts. It finds that people repeatedly stress a desire to die at home, free from pain, but often the opposite happens.

The authors blame a medical system ruled by "perverse incentives" for aggressive care, inadequate physician training and too few conversations about end-of-life wishes.

They say patients' advance directives have not been particularly effective, and urge a series of conversations throughout life about what's desired in death. They say those talks should begin early, perhaps when people are teenagers.

Federal rule challenges Oregon home care system
SALEM, Ore. (AP) — State officials say a change in federal rules will likely force a major overhaul of Oregon's groundbreaking system for providing publicly funded caregivers to the elderly and disabled.

Rules adopted last year extend minimum wage and overtime requirements to 20,000 home care workers paid through the state's Medicaid program.

 That will mean a massive increase in costs unless the state curtails services for certain clients, officials say.

Gov. John Kitzhaber last month asked the U.S. Department of Labor for a delay. He says Oregon hasn't had enough time to negotiate changes to the program.

The Labor Department has not formally responded to Kitzhaber's request.

Crews battle California fire's explosive growth
WEED, Calif. (AP) — Hundreds of additional firefighters have been dispatched to a fast-growing wildfire in Northern California as crews continue to mop up another blaze that tore through a small town.

More than 2,500 firefighters were battling the blaze near the town of Pollock Pines, about 60 miles east of Sacramento, on Wednesday, up from about 1,500 the previous day. The fire grew by thousands of acres overnight and has burned through nearly 29 square miles.

It is threatening 500 homes, at least some of which are under mandatory evacuation orders, and is just 5 percent contained.

Meanwhile, further north, crews are building and strengthening containment lines around a fire that tore through the town of Weed near the Oregon border on Monday. The blaze damaged or destroyed more than 150 structures, many of them homes.
