TOP NEWS APRIL 23
TEEN ARRESTED, ACCUSED IN STABBING
MEDFORD, Ore. -- Police have arrested one person, so far, in connection with the assault of a 39-year-old man last night. 

Officers say they spotted 18-year-old Lucas Carstens in the area just before 1 a.m. and arrested him. 

The stabbing happened in the 200 block of Elm Street at about 10 p.m. last night. 

The victim has multiple stab wounds to his head and upper body, but he is now in stable condition. 

The suspects are believed to be friends with the victim's neighbor. 

STABBING, HIGH SPEED CHASE IN KLAMATH FALLS
KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- A stabbing and high speed chase ended with three arrests in Klamath Falls last night. 

Police say the stabbing happened in the 300 block of North 5th Street last night. Police chased Seth Hernandez, Keith Jackson and Joshua Morris from Malin to Bonanza then to the Stewart Lennox area, according to the press release.

The suspects reached speeds up to 100 miles per hour, according to police. Spike strips at first did not work, so officers had to use helicopters to follow the suspects in the camero. 

The suspects are now behind bars, facing attempted aggravated murder charges and assault charges. 

JACKSON COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE HOSTED GANG FORUM
MEDFORD, Ore. -- The community is coming up with ways to prevent the further spread of gangs in Jackson County. 

For two years, a gang task force gathered information on gangs. Students, business leaders and even some active gang members contributed to 4,500 surveys in Jackson County. 

The results presented last night show, among other ideas, mentoring is one of the top suggestions for stopping gang influences.

Another presentation of the Gang Assessment Study will be held at 5:30 p.m. at White City Elementary School on Thursday. 

WHAT'S NEXT FOR OREGON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE BAN?
SALEM -- In court today, arguments for dropping Oregon's same-sex marriage ban were presented. A federal judge will hear arguments over the ban. 

Last night, people gathered for a gay rights vigil at the Jackson County Courthouse, joining other vigils across the state. 

Oregon's attorney general declined to defend the constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

Groups for same-sex marriage, like SO-Pride and Basic Rights Oregon, say they anticipate the measure coming to ballots in November.

FORUM FOR JOSEPHINE COUNTY SHERIFF CANDIDATES

GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- The primary election is just one month away. 
A forum for those running for Josephine County sheriff will be tonight at 6 p.m. at the Anne Basker Auditorium. 

Questions will be presented to the sheriff candidates. The public is welcome. 

MEDFORD SCHOOLS SAY THEY SAVED MONEY DURING STRIKE
MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Medford School District says it saved $725,000 when teachers went on strike earlier this year. 

Back in February, the teachers union went on strike for 11 days. 

The district's financial officer says it paid more than $2 million to keep schools open during the strike, but still managed to save. 

The savings will be used for student-related purchases and maintenance projects. That includes $40,000 for new ovens for South Medford High School's culinary classroom, 500 Chromebooks for students and more than $380,000 will go to update curriculum software. 

MARIGOLDS CLOSED FOR BUSINESS
MEDFORD, Ore. -- A sign posted on the front door of Marigolds and J-Dubs says the restaurant is going out-of-business. 

The sign says due to several factors they must close their doors for good. The restaurant opened in January. 

Several businesses have come and gone at the same location in the last year. 

MEDFORD CENTER BUSINESS OWNERS WORRY OZ FITNESS WILL REMAIN VACANT
MEDFORD, Ore. -- Ever since Oz Fitness announced it would be closing its doors for good at the Medford Center, neighboring businesses and shoppers worry there will not be a buyer for the empty space. 

Much of the Medford Center is already vacant. Most business owners say larger companies, like Sears and Tinseltown USA, bring in most of the foot traffic. 

While they are not being greatly affected by the closure of Oz, other neighboring businesses say they are wondering if they should clear out, too. 

JOSEPHINE COUNTY PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK EVENT

GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Grants Pass police are offering the public a way to safely get rid of unused prescription pills. 

This Saturday it is holding a prescription drug take back at the Justice Building from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Police say extra medications can end up in the wrong hands, lead to poisonings and even pollute our water when flushed down the toilet.

Pet medications will also be accepted, as well as old vitamins or supplements. 

TAP PROJECT APPROVED IN ASHLAND
ASHLAND, Ore. -- The City of Ashland will move forward with a pipeline that will bring water into the Rogue Valley this summer.

It will cost more than $4 million, so council members have approved a request by "public works" to use money originally designated for parks and recreation funding. 

Director Mike Faught says the low snowpack has hurt the water supply this year and the pipeline is drastically needed.

ROSEBURG PARENTS ARRESTED AFTER METH ALLEGEDLY FOUND IN TODDLER'S BLOOD
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Two Roseburg parents are behind bars after doctors say they found traces of methamphetamine in their 2-year-old daughter's blood stream. 

The parents took their daughter to the emergency after she was not acting normal, the press release said. 

Michelle Burke and James Pohl were later arrested after investigators found meth residue in their home. Two other girls also live at the home. 

The parents are now facing charges of child neglect and possession of meth. 

Chamber of Medford/ Jackson County issues its positions on ballot measures
MEDFORD, Ore. -- A group representing many of Jackson County's largest employers released its positions on ballot measures up for the general election on May 20. 

The Chamber of Medford/Jackson County Board of Directors released its position on Measure 15-119 and Measure 15-121.

The group's positions are as follows:
-- Vote "no" on Measure 15-119. The vote means the group is against the proposed ban on genetically-engineered crops in Jackson County. The chamber says they are voting against the measure because it would "divert limited county dollars away from existing services to fund a new, unnecessary county program." The press release goes on to explain the chamber believes the measure "creates a new government bureaucracy to enforce a crop ban at a potential cost of more than $200,000 a year to taxpayers. Diverting any money from current programs would be irresponsible, bad for Jackson County's budget and, ultimately, bad for business."


-- Vote "yes" on Measure 15-121. The vote means the group is voting in favor of the proposed plan to continue funding the Oregon State University extension service. According to the board of directors, the group is voting in favor of the measure "to ensure the future of the OSU agricultural extension service." The chamber explained in the press releaser "the extension service is an important part of our economy and our agricultural heritage and values."

The Board of Directors says the votes were unanimous. 

The chamber represents more than 1,400 small and large businesses in the community, with its Board of Directors representing businesses like Harry&David, Rogue Disposal & Recycling and Pacific Power.

Oregon fight instructor serves time, gets deported
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Federal authorities say a mixed martial arts fighter and instructor convicted in Clackamas County of attempted child sexual abuse has been deported.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement office says 39-year-old Hermes Franca De Barros was convicted in 2012 of attempting to abuse a student under 14 at his academy.

The agency says De Barros was admitted to the United States in 2005 and got lawful permanent resident status in 2007. It said he served his sentence and was turned over to the federal government in March.

An immigration judge ruled that he could be deported, and he was put on a plane Tuesday to Brazil.

New sex abuse lawsuit against Portland Archdiocese
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Another lawsuit has been filed against the Catholic Archdiocese of Portland by a man who says he was one of dozens of boys sexually abused by a priest in the 1960s and 1970s.

In the lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court in Portland, the 52-year-old man says he was molested by Maurice Grammond when the priest was assigned to a church in Seaside. The man was between 7 and 12 years old at the time.

The Oregonian reports the complaint seeks $2 million.

The archdiocese said it "will work for a just resolution of the claim."
The archdiocese has paid nearly $40 million to dozens of victims of Grammond who died in 2002.

FedEx sued over deadly California bus crash
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The mother of a teenager who was among 10 people killed in a fiery Northern California bus crash is suing the bus company and FedEx.

Attorney A. King Aminpour says the negligence suit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles seeks $100 million.

Seventeen-year-old Jennifer Bonilla, of Los Angeles, was on a bus taking students to tour a university April 10 when it was struck by a FedEx truck on a freeway in Orland.

Five teens and five adults died, including both drivers.

Some witnesses say the FedEx truck was on fire before the crash. The lawsuit alleges FedEx trucks have a history of catching fire.

Memphis, Tenn.-based FedEx Corp. declined to discuss the litigation but says it's cooperating with investigators.

A call seeking comment from the bus owner, Silverado Stages, wasn't immediately returned.
