$5,000 offered for info in string of sea lion shootings
ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) - Federal wildlife officials are investigating a string of sea lion shootings on the Oregon coast.

The Humane Society of the U.S. and another group are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of those responsible for the shootings.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says ten California sea lions and one harbor seal were shot and killed during the months of April and May.

Their bodies were found floating in the waters near the shore in Astoria, Oregon. Multiple shell casings were also found nearby, in areas where sea lions congregate.

Killing a sea lion is a federal offense under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

Feds distribute $20 million to Oregon timber counties
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) -- Checks totaling $20 million are being sent to 18 timber counties in western Oregon under terms of a federal subsidy renewed by Congress.
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management announced Thursday that the money is being distributed to the so-called O&C counties under terms of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act.
The counties once received so much money as a share of logging on the so-called O&C lands that some didn't have to levy taxes. But when logging was drastically cut in the 1990s to protect the northern spotted owl and salmon, Congress created a series of safety nets. The latest one had expired, but was revived by Congress.
The money has been steadily decreasing, and counties that depend on it the most have trouble providing services.

Local School Gets A Four Pawed Assistant

ASHLAND, Ore. -- A local school got a new program assistant, and he has four paws.

Ashland High School's Inspire Program received a dog, but not just any dog. It is a program assistance dog from Dogs For The Deaf.

His name is Hilton, and he is being placed with transition specialist Rebecca Bjornson at the Inspire Program.

Hilton will help adult students learn life skills including communication, social interactions, and responsibility by being a patient influence.

Bjornson said she has already seen Hilton work his magic.

"Yesterday, a student that hasn't been comfortable coming to school and has some pretty severe anxiety, came into the classroom after a few weeks of not being here and swung the door open full force and walked right in, asked if he could sit down and meet Hilton," Bjornson said.

Hilton was rescued from Klamath Animal Shelter last fall.

He is still training, but he has already made friends in the classroom.

1986 Medford Stabbing Comes Back Up

MEDFORD, Ore. -- Rodney Halbower appeared in court Thursday in San Mateo, California.

He is the man who stabbed a Medford woman behind Bi-Mart almost 30 years ago.

Medford Police caught up with him on that December day in 1986, and because of their quick work, they saved the woman's life.

"As you look back on it, a lot of things had to really go right to have as good an outcome as we did," Talent Police's Chief Mike Moran said. "The main thing is the victim survived, the secondary thing is we got a real bad guy."

Moran was a detective for Medford Police at the time, and worked on the case.

Because of forensic evidence, Halbower has been charged for two of the Gypsy Hill Murders in San Mateo, California.

Moran said he will never forget this case, because of the crime and the great police work that caught the man.
