Internet outrage over Ore. park vandalism
BEND, Ore. – A Prineville man's outrage over alleged vandalism along a popular Oregon trail has turned into a viral hunt for the culprits and a U.S. Forest Service investigation.

Brett Nelson was hiking with a friend along the Tumalo Falls Trail outside Bend last Saturday when he says he saw a dad with his two children carving their names into a metal railing at a scenic overlook.

Nelson said he confronted the family and urged them to stop. But even the dad seemed to think it was no big deal and let the kids continue.

"All I wanted for him to do is tell them to stop and say, 'It is wrong,' and it was the complete opposite," Nelson told KTVZ-TV in Bend on Monday.

nfuriated, Nelson got a picture of the family and decided to share his frustrations – and their photo - on social media.

Here's part of the caption he added on Facebook: "PROUD parent letting children carve names in Tumalo Falls hand railing… I stated, you know your letting your kids deface federal public land? How is this OK???"

The post quickly spread far beyond Nelson's 1,130 Facebook friends and went viral. As of Tuesday morning, it had surpassed 52,000 shares and also got the attention of the U.S. Forest Service.

California lawmakers stall roadside test for drugged drivers
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- An Assembly committee has rejected making California one of more than a dozen states that allow police to conduct roadside testing for marijuana and other drugs.
  
AB1356, by Republican Assemblyman Tom Lackey of Palmdale, would have allowed police to use a device similar to Breathalyzers used to chart blood alcohol levels. However, these devises detect drugs in the driver's system.
  
The bill did not garner enough votes to advance from the Assembly Public Safety Committee Tuesday. Republicans supported it, but four Democrats abstained.
  
The bill had support from law enforcement organizations but was opposed by defense attorneys and the Drug Policy Alliance.
  
The measure comes as the alliance and other groups are proposing 2016 ballot measures to legalize marijuana.
  
Lackey plans to bring the bill back next year.

Selfies proven to take a toll on self-esteem
By KTVL Staff

MEDFORD, Ore. -- 15-year-old Victoria Durand and 17-year-old Molly Rosenbaltt are just like most teens. They never shy away from taking the occasional selfie.

"When I'm with a group of friends when we are out somewhere we will stop and take a selfie and post it on Instagram where everyone can see it," said Durand.

"We all like take selfies normally when we are in groups. there's the whole thing of selfie sunday that we like to do," said Rosenbaltt.

But they notice their friends taking selfies more often.

"They post constantly selfies either on Instagram or snap chat or whatever social media they have," Durand said.

"All of my friends have an Instagram. all of my friends have a twitter," Rosenbaltt said.

"They're constantly on their phone or like scrolling or refreshing the page to see how many likes they get," Durand said.

"Everyone keeps track. Even i who try not to go on a lot... I keep track of the number of likes I get," Rosenbaltt said.

And they say that's -- causing problems with self -esteem.

"I myself have been bullied, my friends have been bullied," said Rosenbaltt.

"They're scared about what people are going to think about them and what they are going to say about them," Durand said.

"I have dealt with young men and women who are suicidal," Julie Strentzsch, a school counselor said.


Halley's Comet expected to streak across our skies May 5, 2015
(CBS) - The last time Halley's comet streaked through our skies was 1986. But if you look up Tuesday night, you may be able to catch sight of pieces of the famous comet.

The Eta Aquarid meteor shower is made up of debris shed by the space rock, which burns up as it enters Earth's atmosphere. The high-speed meteors careen into the atmosphere at 148,000 mph and can leave incandescent glowing trails in their wake that can last for several seconds to several minutes.

The meteor shower stretches from April 19 to May 28, and peaks Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, May 5 and 6.

The shower is best viewed from the Southern Hemisphere, where skywatchers might see as many as 30 to 60 meteors per hour. In the Northern Hemisphere, where the perspective isn't quite as favorable, the peak could see a top rate of about 10 meteors per hour. Because the constellation Aquarius, from which the meteors seem to emanate and for which they are named, is lower in the sky in the Northern Hemisphere, at higher latitudes the meteors appear as "earthgrazers," seeming to skim the surface of the planet near the horizon.

For the best chance to catch a glimpse of these remnants of Halley's comet, find a spot away from street and city lights and lie on your back on the ground with your feet facing east. Let your eyes adjust to the dark and wait. The best time for viewing is in the hours before twilight, as the Earth turns into the meteor stream, and the show will last until dawn.

You can also watch online. The Slooh observatory will stream the meteor shower live Tuesday night.

Comet 1P/Halley was discovered in 1705 and orbits the sun once every 76 years. When it enters the inner solar system, its nucleus sheds a layer of ice and rock into space. When Earth passes through the trail of debris, it collides with our atmosphere, giving us the fiery Eta Aquarids in May and the Orionid meteor shower in October.

Halley's comet will not reenter the inner solar system again until 2061.

95-year-old N.H. man fights off robber with cane

MANCHESTER, N.H. (CBS) -- An elderly WWII veteran fought off a robber who allegedly tried to take his wallet on Saturday, CBS Boston reports.

Arthur Kamberis, 95, of Manchester, New Hampshire, was leaving a local Walgreen's just after 9 a.m. when a man approached him, according to the station. Police said the suspect allegedly grabbed Kameris' arm and reached for his wallet.

Then, "Kamberis started to fight off the attacker and hit him several times with his cane," according to a statement by the Manchester Police Department to CBS Boston.

A witness rushed into action, trying to help the elderly man, but the would-be victim wasn't hurt and the robbery suspect ran away.

"He wasn't very aggressive, but I was," Kamberis told CBS Boston.
