McLEAN, Va. (AP) – The family of an Oregon man who traveled to
England by boat because of his apparent placement on the no-fly
list says he has been released from custody in Britain. Michael
Migliore, a Muslim convert and dual citizen of the U.S. and Italy,
had been trying unsuccessfully for months to fly to Italy. Migliore
says he believes he was placed on the no-fly list because he
refused to cooperate with the FBI after an acquaintance was charged
last year in a plot to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in
TUALATIN, Ore. (AP) – An Oregon State Police trooper says a
Honda Civic that he clocked at 107 mph on Interstate 5 sped up to
more than 120 mph after he tried to pull it over. The driver
finally stopped when he exited in the Tualatin area south of
Portland and got caught in heavy traffic. The trooper says he
arrested Dallas Bradley of Bend for investigation of DUI, reckless
driving and felony attempt to elude.

before police found him in some marsh grass. Later they learned
that Enrique Alcaraz Placencia of Bell, Calif., was being sought on
a warrant alleging multiple drug and weapons crimes in Eastern
Washington. Police say the Reames Golf and Country Club suffered
minor damage from car tracks across some fairways.
