WATER DEAL STRUCK IN KLAMATH BASIN
CHILOQUIN, Ore. -- Dozens of people gathered today to watch state and national leaders sign the Upper Klamath Basin-Comprehensive Agreement. 

The agreement introduces legislation to reduce the amount of water than can be used for irrigation. 

Klamath Tribes Chairman Don Gentry says irrigation will be cut short by 30,000 acre-feet of water. That takes away 18,000 acres of land that could be irrigated. 

Gentry says this will keep more water for endangered salmon. 

Last summer, irrigation was shut off for ranchers in the Klamath Basin due to local tribes applying their water rights to protect fish. 

ROGUE VALLEY PREPS FOR EARTHQUAKE
GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Officials across the valley are preparing for when the Rogue Valley will "unzip."

Unzip -- that's the term Geologic Hazards Coordinator Althea Rizzo used in Grants Pass today.

Rizzo shared ideas on preparing what will happen in the Cascadia rupture zone. We happen to live in that very zone and she says we won't have just one major earthquake, but that we should expect hundreds to thousands of aftershocks as the Cascadia zone rips. 

JOSEPHINE COUNTY NO LONGER RENTING JAIL BEDS
GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- A rental agreement in Josephine County involving jail beds will soon run out. 

A one time one-year contract between Grants Pass police and the jail is set to expire June 30. 

Last year, the city approved $1 million to rent about 30 jail beds. 

Interim Chief Bill Landis says the move certainly made a difference in decreasing crime. 

ROGUE VALLEY PREPPERS MEET SATURDAY
MEDFORD, Ore. -- Rogue Valley Oregon Preppers are holding a meeting tomorrow in Medford. 

They will focus on how to re-use, re-purpose and recycle for everyday use and im emergencies. 

The group encourages people to bring an item to discuss and share your ideas. 

The meeting is free at 1 p.m. Saturday at Fire Station #6 in Medford. 

PHOENIX RESIDENTS PEN WAR OPERA
PHOENIX, Ore. -- Two Phoenix residents wrote an original opera about the moral injuries of war. 

The opera, "The Canticle of the Black Madonna," looks at Post Traumatic Stress and how it impacts veterans and their families.

A free sneak preview of the opera will be held at the Paschal Winery in Talent from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

SALVATION ARMY HOLDS FOOD DRIVE SATURDAY
CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- The Salvation Army is holding a food drive tomorrow at the LDS Church in Central Point and Eagle Point. 

The food drive begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. The food will go directly to the Salvation Army Social Service Office and then to local community members in need.

NATIONAL PARKS ARE FREE NEXT WEEK
CRATER LAKE, Ore. -- Tomorrow marks the start of National Park Week and this year's celebration is "Go Wild."

The National Parks  Service and the National Park Foundation are celebrating by offering people free admission all weekend to all of the nation's 401 national parks. 

Parks will also host special events now through Sunday.

NOT ALL GROUPS AGREE TO KLAMATH WATER DEAL
CHILOQUIN, Ore. -- Not all groups agree with the historic water deal signed today in Chiloquin. Some claim it will do nothing to solve the basin's water issues. 

Water Watch of Oregon released a statement today saying if the agreement were in place this year, it would not be enough to let the Klamath Project operate at traditional levels, provide water to the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge or leave enough water to keep salmon from dying. 

USDA orders farms to report pig virus infections
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The federal government is starting a new program to help monitor and possibly control the spread of a virus that has killed millions of pigs since showing up in the U.S. last year.

The porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, believed to be from China, causes severe diarrhea in newborn piglets, who die from dehydration.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Friday it is stepping up efforts by requiring farmers to report infections and labs where farmers send tissue and fecal samples to report positive tests.Farms that suffer an outbreak also will have to participate in a program to help control the spread of the disease.

Previously, the USDA and the nation's pork industry tracked the disease with voluntary reports from the labs.

45lbs of marijuana, 1/4lb of hash leads to arrest of 2 Washington men
CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- The men were stopped for a speeding violation, however, they were arrested once 45-pounds of marijuana and a quarter-pound of hash was found hidden in trash bags inside the car, according to Oregon State Police.

Oregon oil trains carried 11M barrels in 2013
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Reports to the state show the volume of oil hauled on railroads in Oregon increased last year to more than 11 million barrels.

That's up from about 3 million barrels in 2012.

The Oregonian reports Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Union Pacific reported the figures to the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Most of the tanker cars are moved through Portland to a terminal near Clatskanie that loads oil on barges bound for West Coast refineries. Oil trains also pass through the Columbia River Gorge, Salem, Eugene, Bend and Klamath Falls.

Oil train shipments through the Northwest are expected to grow as they carry crude from the oil boom in North Dakota.

Minister accused of abuse reported in Spokane-area
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The Washington State Patrol says investigators have acted on 20 or 30 tips this week as they check locations in the Spokane-area in their search for a self-professed minister accused of sexually abusing at least two girls in rural Minnesota.

Lt. Shane Nelson tells The Spokesman-Review they're also contacting known associates of Victor Arden Barnard.

The investigation began in Minnesota but the 52-year-old was last known to be in the Spokane area. He's facing 59 counts of criminal sexual conduct related to two young women who said they were abused for nearly a decade.

In 2000, Barnard set up what he called the "Shepherd's Camp" on land where girls and young women between the ages of 12 and 24 lived as part of his "Maidens Group."
