Oregon pot stores sell more than $11 million in first 5 days
 SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- The Oregon Retailers of Cannabis Association estimates that marijuana stores sold more than $11 million of marijuana during the state's first week of legal recreational sales.

The Statesman Journal in Salem reports that Oregon sales outpaced the first week of recreational sales in Colorado and Washington. Colorado's first week of sales reached $5 million. In Washington state, sales during the first month hit $2 million.

Retailers of Cannabis Association Executive Director Casey Houlihan says the first day alone brought in $3.5 million in Oregon.

Marijuana stores opened their doors to recreational users on Oct. 1.

1 dead, 3 wounded in shooting at Northern Arizona University

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — An overnight confrontation between two groups of students escalated into gunfire Friday when a freshman at Northern Arizona University killed one person and wounded three others, authorities said.

University police chief Gregory T. Fowler identified the shooter as 18-year-old Steven Jones and said he used a handgun in the shootings at about 1:20 a.m. Friday. Police were still interviewing Jones and he had not been booked into jail Friday morning.

The university in a statement identified the student who died as Colin Brough. The victims being treated at Flagstaff Medical Center are Nicholas Prato, Kyle Zientek and Nicholas Piring. The hospital said it couldn't release any information on conditions.

"This is not going to be a normal day at NAU," said school President Rita Cheng. "Our hearts are heavy."

She called it an isolated and unprecedented incident and said classes would go on as scheduled Friday.

The parking lot where the shooting happened is just outside Mountain View Hall dormitory on the Flagstaff campus, which provides housing for many of the campus' sororities and fraternities. The gate to the dorm's main entrance was closed Friday, and police had the surrounding area taped off.

Iowa City, Iowa-based Delta Chi Fraternity said Delta Chi members were involved, but offered no other details.

Alex McIntosh, a friend of Zientek, said he worked part time at the High Country Conference Center while attending the school full time.

"He's very calm, very respectful, has a great manner, calm demeanor and you'd never expect him to be caught up in something like this," McIntosh said.

Brough was from Castle Rock, Colorado, about 30 miles south of downtown Denver. Randy Barber, a spokesman for Douglas County Schools, confirmed that Brough graduated from Castle View High School in 2013. He said the school district had activated a crisis team to support students and staff at the high school.

Student Maria Gonzalez told The Associated Press that she at first suspected firecrackers when the shooting happened.

"I was studying for an exam so I looked out the window and see two people running, and that's when I realized they weren't fireworks they were actually gunshots," she said.

Arizona political leaders voiced support for the university and surrounding community, with Gov. Doug Ducey calling the shooting heartbreaking. He said the state stands ready to help in the investigation and response.

Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, who lives in Flagstaff, expressed confidence that the city "will only grow stronger in difficult moments like these."

The Flagstaff shooting comes on the same day that President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit Roseburg, Oregon, where eight students and a teacher were shot and killed last week at Umpqua Community College. The gunman in the Oregon shooting wounded nine others before turning the gun on himself.

NAU is a four-year public university that has more than 25,000 total undergraduate students at the campus in Flagstaff, a city about two hours north of Phoenix that is surrounded by mountains and ponderosa pines.

Freshman Cameron Sands, 18, said he had pledged at a fraternity and was supposed to move into Mountain View Hall on Friday.

"It's crazy. You don't think this stuff happens. When I think of Flagstaff, I think safety," he said.

Beyond 'Like:' 5 ways you might soon emote on Facebook

This image provided by Facebook shows its newly introduced "Reactions" buttons. From left: like, love, haha, yay, wow, sad, and angry. Facebook is testing Reactions in Ireland and Spain starting Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015, with the hope of eventually rolling them out globally soon. (Facebook via AP)

BREE FOWLER, AP Technology Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Sometimes "Like" just doesn't cut it. So how about Love or Angry? Haha or Sad? Or just Yay or Wow?

Facebook is going "Inside Out" on the Like button, adding a range of new emotional reactions to the iconic thumbs-up icon it launched in 2009.

You won't see the new emoji right away unless you live in Ireland or Spain, the two locations the Menlo Park, California-based social network chose to begin testing them on Friday.

But Chris Cox, Facebook's chief product officer, says in a post that the company plans to use the feedback from the test run to make improvements, with the hope of launching the buttons globally "soon."

Many Facebook users have been clamoring for the company to add a "Dislike" button for years, arguing that hitting the "Like" button in many instances — such as in reaction to a tragic news event — can seem a bit shallow, or even inappropriate.

At the same time, typing out a thoughtful comment on a phone isn't always easy.

Cox says the company studied Facebook comments to see what reactions were most universally expressed through Facebook and based the new buttons on that.

"As you can see, it's not a 'dislike' button, though we hope it addresses the spirit of this request more broadly," Cox's post reads.

In order to see the buttons — which are available in the iPhone, Android and desktop versions of Facebook used in Ireland and Spain — users can either long-press or hover over the "Like" button. The buttons will then appear for users to scroll through and select.

Counters underneath a post will track how many of each reaction the post has received, similar to how likes are tracked now.

Music Coop Celebrates 40th Anniversary
The store has served locals in Ashland for 14 of the past 40 years, 10/08/15, (KTVL/Megan Allison)

Ashland, Ore. --

Music Coop opened in Petaluma, California in 1975. The store moved to Ashland in 2001 and settled in its seventh location on Main Street five years ago. Co-owner Trina Brenes said the location brings a constant stream of customers through the door.

"The goal here is whether you are seven or eight years old or 70 or 80 years old when you walk in the door you can find something in our store that you don't want to go home without," Brenes said.

The store has even attracted celebrities over the years.

"We're very fortunate, musicians love the store. And we are friends with Linda Rondstadt, Aaron Neville, Bonnie Raight, a lot of the local musicians here in Ashland," Brenes said.

John Brenes opened the original Music Coop and at 71-years-old still enjoys being hands-on in the store. He said he spends at least 15 hours a week looking for new music.

"The best part of my job? Besides talking to good people every day? The best part of my job is buying. Buying records. That's what I love to do," he said.

Brenes said downloadable music hasn't slowed down business. He said people are buying just as many records now as ever.

"The downloading phenomenon has kind of faded away and people are buying physical product again. So it's just going back to what it was," he said.

Brenes said they're laying low for the 40th, but in ten years they'll have a big 50th anniversary party.

"I'm not slowing down. I feel exactly like when I opened this store when I was 31 years old. And I'm doing exactly the same thing I was doing," he said.

Brenes said in the meantime he plans to keep business the same, and has faith that locals will continue to come back for good music.

Water Flush Discoloration
Residents around Main Street in Ashland could see murky water tomorrow, 10/08/15, (KTVL/Megan Allison)

By Megan Allison/KTVL.com

Ashland, Ore. --

The Ashland Water Department is helping Ashland Fire and Rescue with a system flush on North Main Street early tomorrow morning. Water is flushed through the building's fire system into a water truck.

This may cause some water discoloration for nearby residents. The water department says the process disrupts the normal water pattern.

"Anytime you create a release it may disturb small mineral deposits that are in the line. Basically iron deposits. If you're nearby residents and businesses may experience a slight discoloration," said Steve Walker with the Ashland Water Department.

The discoloration is harmless. The water department says leave tap water running for a few minutes to get rid of it. If it doesn't clear up, give them a call. about 25 to 30 homes and businesses could be affected by the water flush.
