Oregon focus of effort to expand background checks for guns
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — Fresh off a victory in Washington state, a leading gun control group backed by billionaire Michael Bloomberg hopes to make Oregon its next prize in a campaign to require all gun sales go through universal background checks.
Everytown for Gun Safety spokeswoman Erika Soto Lamb says background checks are their top priority, and they hope to pick up a win in Oregon.
Everytown backed a voter-approved initiative in Washington last year that made it the 17th state to expand background checks beyond the federal standard, which applies only to licensed gun dealers.
Now Everytown's attention is on Oregon, where the state Legislature will consider a bill to require checks on private gun sales. With help from Everytown last fall, Democrats expanded their majority to 18-12 in the Senate.

Border collie sparks debate on euthanizing sick animals

GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- A Josephine County border collie's life is sparking an intense conversation regarding the animal shelter's policy on euthanizing abandoned animals.
Riley the border collie was taken to the Josephine County Animal Shelter after she was abandoned and found wandering the streets. Veterinarians at the shelter examined her and found she had fleas, ticks, skin sores and heartworms, a condition the shelter says is common amongst stray animals.
The dog's multiple ailments coupled with her age and alleged aggressive behavior led veterinarians to conclude that euthanizing her would be in her best interest, according to Josephine Counter Commissioner Cherryl Walker.
This was a decision much of the community was firmly against, going so far as to gather donations to fund her treatment and finding a family to adopt her.
However, the shelter followed through with their plan and euthanized Riley on Friday, explaining that even though "heartworm can be treated, the treatment is expensive, often debilitating and can also cause death in weak or older dogs and cats" in a release sent by Walker on Monday morning.
The press release also stated the shelter has a firm policy to not adopt out animals that are sick or have debilitating diseases that put other animals at risk in the community.

"We're watching out for each other, we have each other's backs and we're not going to take it anymore. This is our neighborhood. We love living here and it is going to be pretty and neighbors are great and helpful. The view the public has of our side of town isn't what it is," Randi Brock, who created the page, said. The Facebook group is called West Side Beautification and will clean Union Park this Saturday. Then the group will continue to target other streets and places nearby.
