News10 Evening News Break Jan. 28
1. A 12-year-old boy was walking home after taking his brother to the bus stop and was physically grabbed by a man he did not know at 7:30 Wednesday morning less than 200 yards from his home. Deputies say there was a struggle between the suspect and the child. The victim was able to break away and returned home. No longer than 2 minutes after, Jackson County Sheriff's Office deputies arrived on scene. But it was too late, the suspect  got away on foot. "It appears to be not an organized offense. What I'm saying is that maybe spur of the moment and we don't have a person identified yet," Captain Monty Holloway said. Deputies say they are going to keep interviewing. They are also going to look at registered sex offenders within the area and suspicious persons calls.

2. Medford police officers need your help trying to find Steven Brewer. Brewer is a registered sex offender convicted in the sexual abuse of an 8-year-old girl several years ago. He was released from prison in June. Police say Brewer is registered to an address in Grants Pass, but recently disappeared. He now has an arrest warrant for failing to register as a sex offender.

3. A second mistrial for Jose Valencia-Gaona. He is the man accused of killing Maria Rodriguez outside of her Medford apartment. Attorneys on both sides are calling this an unfortunate speed bump and can't believe they are facing another set back. Valencia-Gaona is accused of stabbing Rodriguez outside of her apartment on Table Rock Road in 2013. The prosecution called a Jackson County Sheriff's deputy to the stand who took the man's fingerprints after his arrest. Then, a neighbor took the stand, but said something he should not have. That's when the defense immediately objected and called for another mistrial. "Unfortunately, witness testified to something they should not have testified to and while it's unfortunate, it does happen from time to time and the goal is to provide a fair trial to the defendant," Deputy District Attorney Ginger Greer said. The next pre-trial in this case is set for Feb.9.

4. The Josephine County Board of Commissioners has turned down a measure for the May ballot that would have regulated and taxed marijuana within the county. If it had passed, a 10 percent tax would have been enforced on the production, transportation and transfer of marijuana products. Many residents weighed in against the idea at Wednesday's meeting. The measure would have placed limits as to where marijuana could be grown, stored and processed. The Josephine County Special Election is May 9.

5. American Indian tribes are planning to talk about pot at a national conference. They scheduled a date in February to meet in Washington to discuss business, legal, social and cultural questions about the drug. Some tribes have expressed interest in the business, while others are concerned about substance abuse.

6. More jobs will be lost than originally announced by Darigold, a local dairy processing plant. In a statement, Darigold said the closing of its Medford plant affected 29 employees. But employees say they did not accounts for the drivers, making about 50 people jobless. Employees tell News10 they did not see it coming and are devasated. Some were near retirement and are now unable to claim their pensions. Employees say they want to public to know, even with an aging plant, they always made the best quality items. Darigold employees told News10 their severance pay. Employees who have been there for under 5 years are getting 40 hours of severance pay, while employees who have been with the company 9 to 10 years will received 120 hours of pay and anyone with the company 25 years or longer will received 440 hours of pay. The employees' union will try to negotiate a better severance package. Darigold employees made about $19 to $25 an hour, according to workers.

7. Several campgrounds around our region are going to see some much needed changes. The six campgrounds in the Upper Rogue River corridor and fish lake area are currently under the care of the U.S. Forest Service. Soon, though, they will be cared for by people like Paul Ondesko with Rogue Recreational, a local company. "Develop this safety and facility repair and upgrade through cooperationg with the forestry department," he said. Once the switch is finalized, Rogue Recreational will start facelights to several areas, including Natural Bridge, River Bridge, Mill Creek, Willow Prairie Horse Camp, Daley Creek and Beave Dam Campgrounds, bringing the total to 14 areas Rogue Recreational manages. All will be funded through the company and campground fees. 

8. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is reminding hunters to report tags for large game. The deadline to report for the 2014 season is this Saturday. There will be a $25 fine for hunters who do not report their tags on time when they buy a 2016 license. "Our agency would prefer not to have any penalities. We would rather have people just report. That's what we want. For years, a lot of people weren't reporting until we implemented the penalty system. And now most people report," ODFW Biologist Mark Vargas said. Hunters are encouraged to report online on ODFW's website.

9. The Southern Oregon University Raiders football team is raising money to fund championship rings. Unlike the NCAA Division I schools who have rings paid for after winning a championship, SOU itself has to purchase them for the team because it is an NAIA school, or National Association of Intercollegiate Athletes."We sent out an email to a pretty large database of alums and donors that have given to the university before and right now we're about $16,000 to $17,000 in pledged and money received," SOU Associate Athletic Director Bobby Heiken said. The Raiders will need to raise almost $40,000 in order to cover the cost of 140 rings.

10. Southern Oregon University Football Coach Craig Howard was named the NAIA Coach of the Year. The Raiders took the national title in their division this year. Howard set a school record for wins in 2014 by going 13-2 last season.

MEDFORD, Ore. -- More people without paychecks come February 28th. In a statement, Darigold said 29 employees were affected by the Medford plant closing, but an employee said it is about 50 employees; he said Darigold did not take into account the drivers.

The employee said even though they were working with aged equipment, they always made high quality items.

Big heart: Classmates give shout-out to missing Oregon teen
ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — Sideline to sideline, an estimated 600 students and teachers have assembled on the football field at Ashland High School to let a missing classmate know they're thinking of her and want her back.

They made a big heart formation Tuesday. Five placards in the middle spelled her nickname, "Moose."

The 17-year-old girl, Hannah Thomas-Garner, has been missing since Nov. 30.

The Ashland Daily Tidings reports (http://bit.ly/1tsszI9) that police consider her a runaway.

She was seen at a party near Ashland on Nov. 30.

Police say her car was later found abandoned and bashed up near a freeway exit in Northern California.

A motorist reported giving a hitchhiker matching her description a ride the next morning.
