Coming Out to be Counted
By Aaron Nilsson/KTVL.comJOSEPHINE COUNTY, Ore. -- Standing up to be counted.About one-thousand people in Josephine County didn't have a permanent home last year.That's according to a survey by United Community Action Network and Josephine County's Homelessness Task Force.Some people didn't want to be counted because of personal concerns and a lost trust in government agencies.Directors said this event underestimates the true nature of homelessness in the community.U.C.A.N. directors said they were lucky to have several volunteers who have connections with some of the local transients."They went with us to each site and went into the brush and coaxed some of them out, saying 'it's okay, they're safe and they have some supplies if you just answer a few questions," Dominick Lucia with U.C.A.N., said.Official numbers of the count are available after February 28th.

Secret Booming Industry in Medford
Ariana Rakhshani/KTVL.com

MEDFORD, Ore. -- The parking lot was full. Inside, everyone was dressed business professional, drinking coffee and tea. It was a business conference.

A Milken Institute economist came to the Inn at the Commons to relay some information about Medford--that people who live here in the city of Medford may not even know.

Medford's high-tech industry is growing at a rate 30 percent higher than the national average.

"It is the 11th most diverse in the tech industry amongst small metros that we look at and it's also a large portion of the output of the Medford economy," Milken Institute economist Minoli Ratnatunga said.

Medford has been in the top tier for this growth for the last five years--out of 179 small cities.

Long way to go for Oregon's 100 percent graduation goal
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Oregon public high schools have to start picking up the pace if they are to achieve Gov. John Kitzhaber's demand for a 100 percent graduation rate by 2025.

The state said Thursday that the on-time graduation rate increased to 72 percent in 2014. That's an increase of 3.3 percentage points from a year earlier, but the gain can be attributed to a new calculation procedure.

In past years, special education students awarded modified diplomas were not considered graduates. This year, they are. The new calculation also includes students who met the requirements for a diploma after four years, but chose to stay in high school for a fifth-year program offered by some districts.

Oregon's graduation rate ranks among the lowest in the nation.

News10 Afternoon News Break Jan. 29
1. New numbers show the graduation rate is improving in Oregon. Across the state, the Class of 2014 had a graduation rate of 72 percent, up from 69 percent in 2013. Those rates are higher in Jackson County, according to the Oregon Department of Education. They take into account 2014 graduates. In Jackson County, the graduation rate last year was 86 percent. In Josephine County, it was 69 percent. In Klamath County is was 60 percent. Medford's graduation rate fell from 67 percent two years ago to 65 percent last year. But at North Medford High School, the rate was up last year to 76 percent. North Medford Principal Ron Beick says moving up a timeline for senior projects has helped improve graduation rates. The district with the highest graduation rate in Jackson County is Ashland with 86 percent. The lowest was Butte Falls with 56 percent. 

2. A man wearing a blue camouflage jacket is the now being considered a suspicious subject believed to have entered a Purple Parrot on Highland Drive with the intention to rob it on Wednesday. He sped off in a black older sedan with chipped paint. He is described as a white male in his 20s standing 6-feet tall. Medford police officers consider the case to be unusual because he entered wearing a ski mask, gloves and dark clothing only to look around and flee when he saw customers. Officers think this was a botched robbery attempt and he could strike again somewhere.

3. Detectives are taking a look at registered sex offenders who live near the site of an attempted kidnapping in White City. It happened just before school Wednesday on Avenue G. Sheriff's deputies say a 12-year-old boy had just walked his brother to a bus stop, when the man grabbed him. The boy fought back and was able to get away. Deputies say the man is not related to the boy. Deputies searched the area and interviewed nearby neighbors and business owners, but at this point, there is not a suspect.

4. New information about a woman who was run over in Josephine County. State police are now identifying the driver as Richard Rohan. Police say alcohol is suspected to have been a factor in the fatal crash. They say Cheryle Anderson was killed after Rohan backed his truck over her. It happened near Three Pines Road in Grants Pass on Monday. Rohan is cooperating with the investigation. 

5. The Josephine County Board of Commissioners has turned down a measure for the May ballot that would have regulated and taxed marijuana within the county. If it had passed, a 10 percent tax would have been enforced on the production, transportation and transfer of marijuana products. Many residents weighed in against the idea at Wednesday's county meeting. The measure would have placed limits as to where marijuana could be grown, stored and processed. The Josephine County Special Election is May 19.

6. The number of people losing their jobs at the Darigold plant in Medford is going up. In a statement, the dairy company said the closing of its Medford plant affected 29 employees. But employees say that number does not account for the drivers, making the count closer to 50 people. Employees told News10 they did not know this was coming and they are devastated. Some are near retirement and are concerned they will be unable to claim their pensions.
