Police: Driver takes off, officer hangs on
GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) — Police in the east Portland suburb of Gresham say a driver trying to flee after hitting a tree drove off in reverse with an off-duty Homeland Security officer hanging on to the black Lexus.

Lt. Claudio Grandjean said the officer let go when the driver stopped Thursday night. The officer is unhurt.

The driver took off again but hit a raised curb and disabled the car. At that point, the driver fled on foot but a police dog tracked him to a swampy area and flushed him out to waiting officers.

Grandjean says the off-duty officer initially watched the vehicle spin out and hit the tree. The officer says he stopped and identified himself, but the driver was trying to take off so the officer reached into the car to take the keys. That's when the car took off in reverse for about 150 feet.

The spokesman says a 33-year-old Gresham man was arrested and will be charged with a variety of offenses.

Prosecutor: No charges in fake Wash. abduction
SEQUIM, Wash. (AP) — A prosecutor in Sequim (Skwim), Wash., says no charges will be filed against twin brothers who say they're responsible for staging a fake child abduction in a park that terrified onlookers who thought it was real.

City Attorney Craig Ritchie tells the Peninsula Daily News that, in his words, "Scaring the hell out of people is not, as far as I can determine, a crime."

Brothers Jason and Jeremy Holden say they were the two masked men who grabbed a young boy from a park bench last Saturday and sped off in a van. Jason Holden says they staged and recorded the incident to create a video on child abduction awareness.

After seeing the fear of those in the park, he says, "We weren't happy about that at all."The prosecutor says city codes don't require permits for filming and a dangerous conduct charge would be tough to pursue since nobody was hurt.

Our Family Farms Coalition Invites Medical Professionals to Speak Out About G.M.O.s
By Aaron Nilsson/KTVL.comMEDFORD, Ore. --Our Family Farms Coalition held a press conference today focused on health risks genetically-engineered crops pose to humans.

The coalition invited local doctors and other medical professionals who support a GMO-free Jackson County to speak.

One concern doctors said they have is with the amount of pesticides used on our food, in our water and in our air.

“Genetically-engineered crops, however, are being used in greater and greater, require the use of pesticides in greater and greater quantities here in Jackson County and we have no choice in the matter,” Anesthesiologist, Joan Becich, said. 

“My daughter lives in Portland. she got tested in a national study that happened this past year to test for glyphosate, which is Round-up, in her body and she tested highest of anyone tested in the United States,” R.N., Cheryl Levie, said.

Some of the medical professionals who spoke today at the press conference said they are personally involved with local farms.

Five hundred and Sixty Five Pennies for 565 stories
By Caitlin Conrad/KTVL.com


MEDFORD, Ore – Child advocates covered the sidewalks in Alba Park with 565 pennies Wednesday, each one representing a case of child abuse this year. 


The Child Abuse Network put out the pennies along with 565 paper dolls, as part of their sixth annual event to bring attention to child abuse.  Law enforcement officers, children’s and advocates, and others in the community turned out to hear speakers share the stories of child abuse from child's perspective.


Event leaders say it's everyone's responsibility to prevent abuse, “you have to engage, you have to pay attention, because child abuse isn't silent, kids scream when they're hurt,” said Dee Anne Everson with CAN.


Everson says if you suspect child abuse call the Department of Human Service, and if you see it, call 911.
