By KTVL Staff/KTVL.com

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore -- The Douglas Forest Protective Association and local fire departments have responded to four fires in the Happy Valley Road and Looking Glass Road area since July 24th.  Fire officials with DFPA say that the cause of these four fires are under investigation and are suspicious.  


The first suspicious fire in the Lookingglass Road and Happy Valley Road area was on July 24th.  The fire was reported at approximately 7:15 p.m. and burned about 1/10th of an acre.


Firefighters responded to the second fire in the area on July 27th, at 2:10 p.m.  Firefighters from DFPA and local fire departments stopped the fire at approximately 1/4th of an acre.  


The third fire in the Lookingglass Road and Happy Valley Road area was reported to 911 at approximately 7:10 p.m., on July 27th.  Firefighters arrived on scene and were informed by someone in the area that there was a fourth fire burning a little farther down the road.  Firefighters stopped the third fire at 1/10th of an acre and the fourth fire at 1/100th of an acre.


Anyone with information about the cause of any of these fires are asked to contact the Douglas Forest Protective Association or the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

Wounded veteran reaches $20,000 goal for new truck

By Dan Cassuto, KATU News Published: Jul 27, 2014 at 8:57 AM PDT

MILWAUKIE, Ore. - A wounded soldier who returned home after two years recovering from severe injuries reached his goal of raising $20,000 to pay for a special truck designed for his wheelchair.

Alex Hussey returned home to Oregon this week after he lost both legs in Afghanistan in 2012 when a IED exploded below him.

Family and friends planned a tribute at a VFW hall and raised $9,000 on Saturday, in addition to $11,000 raised earlier.

The money will pay off Hussey's truck, which is designed to carry his wheelchair.

Hussey reached the $20,000 goal on Saturday afternoon, said Ken Buckles, who organized the tribute.

Police escorted Hussey into the VFW hall's backyard, where Milwaukie High School's Class of 1972 was holding its reunion and asked to incorporate a special tribute for Hussey during the concert.

Brothers run thousands of miles for health
By Jessica De Nova/KTVL.com

EAGLE POINT, Ore.-Two brothers are running nearly 1,700 miles each, over 61 days, through 30 counties in Oregon to inspire their fellow Oregonians to live healthier.

"... promote accreditation of OSU College of Public Health and also trying to promote a healthy lifestyle and nutrition and exercise," said one of the runners, Jeremiah Godby.

Godby said it took their bodies 10 days to adjust to the nearly triple-digit temperatures and 32 miles a day.

"The very first day I collapsed and I had calf cramps," said Jeremiah Godby.

Luckily, the two Oregon State University students have fellow Beaver, Sean Riley, driving along to lend a hand.

"Provide them with some water and food and make sure they have everything they need to get back on the road," said Riley.

The oldest of the two, Isaiah Godby, said he got nothing but support from OSU when he presented the idea.

"My professor helped me get an appointment with the Dean of our College of Public Health and she was ecstatic about my idea," said Isaiah Godby.

After about six months of mapping and training, the Godby brothers were on their way to spreading the message ingrained in them since childhood.
   
Their father, Dr. Dennis Godby, was an activist runner himself.

"Drastic times call for drastic measures and we have some of the unhealthiest people in the United States," said Dennis Godby.

Isaiah Godby said during his travels outside the country it became evident people aren't the only ones to cross borders; they take their habits with them.

"Where there's more American people or more American impact on their countries, they weren't eating right, but the actual Mexicans, the actual Ecuadorians who were eating their traditional foods, they eat a lot healthier," said Isaiah Godby.

Meanwhile, Eagle Point Mayor and OSU Alumnus, Bob Russell, said it's tradition in his city to give residents a way to stay active.

"We have a community work day on September 13-th where we'll probably have 400 people working on things such as blazing some pathway trails for the community and cleaning up the river banks," said Russell.

As a Beaver believer, the owner of the Butte Creek Mill invited the Godbys for a short break, to tour the historic building Sunday.   

The pair is scheduled to meet the Oregon State University President at the OSU Extension Office in Klamath Falls Monday and encourage anyone wanting to join them on their journey, even if just for a few strides, to put on their running shoes and come along.

The brothers tried to reach all 36 counties and OSU Extension Offices in the state, but were only able to plan for 30. They're concerned wild fires and triple-digit temperatures in southern Oregon may pose a new challenge in their journey.

Tree tangled in power lines falls on highway
Justin Matthews/KTVL.com

JACKSONVILLE, Ore.- At about 1:52 p.m. Sunday, the Jacksonville and Applegate Fire Departments were dispatched to a report of a downed power line.

A pine tree had toppled over and took out a power line, forcing the closure of a portion of Highway 238 for a few hours.

Traffic had to be diverted, and a few residents reported to have lost power, Jacksonville Fire says.

"We're very fortunate that there were no vehicles involved and fortunate that no fired started from the down power lines because we do have a very dry situation due to the drought and extreme fire conditions that exist," said Chris Arnold from the Jacksonville Fire Department.

Pacific Power also responded, working to isolate the power lines then divert power around the particular line that fell with the tree, to keep service going without affecting nearby residents.

Search for missing woman using social media
Justin Matthews/KTVL.com

DUNDEE, Ore.- It has been three days since Jennifer Huston, 38, has been missing and her friends and family are using a Facebook page called, "Find Jennifer Huston," to hopefully bring her home to her husband and two sons.

The Facebook has just shy of 7,500 likes.

Huston went missing Thursday when she left to go on errands.

It is reported she was last seen putting gas in her dark green Lexus LX 470 (SUV) at a Circle K in Newberg.

"We're hoping somebody somewhere saw something, somebody had to of, that's a busy area," said Mary Karr, a friend of Jennifer's who lives in Lake of the Woods.

Huston's father says he got access to her email and Facebook accounts, but did not find anything suspicious in the days leading up to Thursday, when she went missing.

Oregon fires burning, but nearing containment
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon's largest wildfire is nearing complete containment, although continuing high temperatures remain a concern.   


The 618-square-mile Buzzard Complex fire in eastern Oregon, the nation's largest wildfire, remained at 95 percent containment on Sunday.   


Incident reports from the fire say containment lines continue hold as crews monitor increased fire activity.   


Containment of the Ochoco complex jumped from 69 to nearly 80 percent on Sunday. The complex consists of four wildfires burning 10,000 acres east of Prinville. And the Bridge 99 complex north of Sisters is 74 percent contained.

Obama: US worried about worsening Gaza conditions
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the United States is growing more concerned about the rising number of civilian deaths in the Gaza war that is entering its third week.   


The White House says Obama and Netanyahu spoke Sunday about the ongoing violence in the region and the worsening humanitarian situation in Gaza. Obama also reiterated that Israel has a right to defend itself and condemned Hamas' rocket attacks.   


Obama says a lasting peace will ultimately require a demilitarized Gaza and dismantling of terror groups. The U.S. president is also pushing for an immediate, unconditional cease-fire that would allow Israeli and Palestinian civilians to return to normalcy.
