Here is the latest Oregon news from The Associated Press
OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) – An Oct. 31 sentencing date is set for
an Oregon City couple convicted of second-degree manslaughter in
the death of their ailing prematurely born son for whom they did
not seek medical care. A Clackamas County jury was unanimous in its
verdict yesterday for Dale and Shannon Hickman, who belong to a
faith-healing church.

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) – A federal magistrate has recommended
that a Bush administration plan to double logging on some federal
lands in western Oregon should be vacated. Magistrate Judge James
Hubel found that the BLM failed to properly consult federal
biologists over the potential harm to endangered species like the
northern spotted owl before adopting the Western Oregon Plan
Revision, known as the WOPR.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Income from farming and ranching in Oregon
inched up 8 percent in 2010 to $458 million compared to the
previous year. But that haul is still a third of the record $1.3
billion farmers and ranchers netted in 2004. The Oregonian reports
that analysts think that income will rise between 8 to 10 percent
in 2011, continuing a slow recovery.

SUTHERLIN, Ore. (AP) – State Police are investigating the
dumping of five antelope carcasses on the property of a timber
company in southern Oregon. Troopers are seeking the public’s help
in identifying the person or people responsible for dumping the
remains. The antelope carcasses were discovered yesterday morning
in Marvin Hill, about 20 miles north of Roseburg.
