Here is the latest Oregon news from The Associated Press
OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) – A memorial service will be held
Saturday afternoon at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City
for Cody Myers. The 19-year-old from Lafayette was found shot in
the head Oct. 4 near Marys Peak while on his way to a jazz festival
when, officials believe, he was killed by a couple on a crime spree
that included two slayings in Everett and another in California.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – A 33-year-old woman arrested near Eugene is
charged with six Bi-Mart pharmacy robberies since the first of
September. KVAL reports the woman also is suspected of five more
drug store robberies. Police stopped her car and took her into
custody about an hour after the latest holdup.
SEASIDE, Ore. (AP) – A surfer at Seaside says he was knocked off
his board Monday afternoon by a shark. Doug Niblack tells KATU he
ended up standing on top of the shark, which he says appeared to be
a 10-to-12-foot Great White. He says he was lifted out of the water
above his knees for several seconds before the shark took off.
Another surfer witnessed the incident and says he and Niblack
paddled to shore as fast as they could.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Enrollment has topped projections at
Portland schools. The district says it has 47,400 students, 600
more than last year and 800 more than the district expected. It’s
the largest enrollment in Portland public schools in eight years.
The Oregonian reports most of the gains were in elementary grades.
High school enrollment was down by about 150 students.
