University bets $10 million on poor city's kids
READING, Pa. (AP) — Public schools in the small Pennsylvania city of Reading (REH'-ding) are plagued by low test scores in reading, math and science, and fewer than 70 percent of its students graduate higher school.

Yet, as another school year gets underway, Reading's Alvernia University is placing a $10 million bet that it can help kids in one of the nation's poorest cities get ready to do college work — and to succeed once they get there.

The first five students selected for the Reading Collegiate Scholars Program have joined Alvernia's freshman class, flush with full-tuition scholarships and plenty of support to help them make the transition from high school to college.

Scholarship student Melisa Rivera says there's "no obstacle" she can't overcome.

Tripping seniors on purpose to stop future falls
CHICAGO (AP) — Researchers are tripping seniors on purpose, and it's not some kind of warped practical joke.

The goal is to prevent falls, which are the leading cause of injury in older adults and cost $30 billion yearly to treat.

Conventional efforts include strengthening exercises. But University of Illinois in Chicago researchers are testing a different approach. They started with a lab-built walkway that causes people to trip, as if stepping on a banana peel. Their research suggests that helped build seniors' subconscious memory, teaching them how not to fall.

Next they'll try computerized "tripping" treadmills that might someday be used in doctors' offices and clinics for fall prevention.

UIC professor Clive Pai ('Pye') calls it a potential "vaccine against falls."

Ore. wildfires produce unhealthy smoke
OAKRIDGE, Ore. (AP) — Wildfires burning in Oregon's Willamette National Forest have sparked spot fires and sent up smoke that produced unhealthy air quality in eastern Lane County in the Willamette Valley. Smoke from the fires was reported in central Oregon as well.

Smoke was expected to be an issue again Thursday.

Fire spokesman Mike Waite said he and others at the Middle Fork Ranger District compound in the Westfir area were briefly evacuated Wednesday during intense fire activity. He says the main Deception Complex fires have grown but he didn't immediately have a new size estimate.

Willamette National Forest spokeswoman Jude McHugh said Wednesday night that crews had successfully attacked spot fires in a mobile home park, at the ranger district compound and on several nearby roads.

Waite says an air inversion Wednesday morning kept smoke from dissipating. Lane County Health & Human Services spokesman Jason Davis says smoke from the fires caused the air quality index to reach the red "unhealthy" range in Oakridge while the Eugene-Springfield area was reported in the "moderate" range.

The fire complex that started Aug. 12 has burned across more than 1.3 square miles. Earlier Wednesday it was reported 53 percent contained.

Court: Group can't defend Oregon marriage ban
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A federal appeals court has dismissed the National Organization for Marriage's effort to appeal an Oregon court ruling that allows same sex marriage.

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued its decision on Wednesday.

Several same-sex couples sued the state of Oregon last year arguing the ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum refused to defend it and joined the couples in asking U.S. District Judge Michael McShane to throw it out.

The National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same-sex unions, asked to offer a defense of the ban on behalf of its members in Oregon. But the judge ruled they lacked standing to intervene in the case.

The group appealed, but a three-judge panel dismissed their case in Wednesday's ruling.

Jeep recovered in Klamath County Deputy shooting

By KTVL Staff/KTVL.com


KLAMATH FALLS, Ore -- The Major Crime team has located the vehicle associated with the shooting of a Klamath County Sheriff Deputy.


The Klamath County District Attorney's Office says Deputy Jason Weber was shot in the head, and in the side on Wednesday during a traffic stop. The man suspected of shooting Weber, William Parkinson is in custody, and so is his girlfriend Karey Pascoe. The two were captured Thursday morning in Chiloquin. 


The 1989 Jeep Cherokee Oregon Vehicle Plate Number ZFQ 270 which was associated with the shooting was found between North Klamath and Rocky Point. District Attorney, Rob Patridge, says the Jeep is a key piece of evidence in the case. 

 

A photograph of Deputy Weber, who is 40 years old and has dedicated seven years to the force is pictured in this update. Weber is undergoing surgery Thursday in Portland at Oregon Health and Sciences University. Seven doctors are treating him. 

 

 

The public is encouraged to relay any information they may have regarding this investigation to the Klamath Falls Police Department tip line at 541-883-5334.

 


Oregon gay marriage appeal dismissed
