Here is the latest Oregon news from The Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A woman whose crying toddler upset a
TriMet bus driver says she’s embarrassed but happy other passengers
supported her. Magdalena Rabadan also told KATU through an
interpreter she fears running into that driver again. She says she
understood the driver wanted her to stop her 2-year-old daughter
from crying last Thursday, but there was nothing else she could do.
She got off the bus in Hillsboro. Other passengers got off in
support and urged her to report the driver, who has since been
placed on leave.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Demonstrators supporting the Occupy Wall
Street movement against corporate power say they’ll meet at noon
today at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland. Police expect the
Occupy Portland demonstrators will march downtown this afternoon,
disrupting traffic and businesses. Demonstrators say on a website
they are nonviolent. Police say their objective is to make sure the
event is safe.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – It was a rough morning yesterday for an
81-year-old man who told Portland firefighters he ran afoul of four
sandbars in the Columbia River before getting his 33-foot sailboat
trapped underneath a railroad bridge. Firefighters pulled Paul
Bulkley of Camas, Wash., off his partially capsized boat and onto a
fireboat yesterday. He was wearing a life jacket and was unhurt.
Bulkey said he misjudged the height of the bridge.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The Oregon Court of Appeals has granted a
request by conservation groups to temporarily halt plans to shoot
two of the state’s 14 wolves for killing livestock. The groups
sought a stay of the department’s kill order while the appeals
court reviews whether the state’s wolf management plan complies
with the Endangered Species Act.
