PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Police have arrested a 29-year-old man at
the Occupy Portland encampment on suspicion of throwing an
improvised incendiary device at an office building. David Joseph
Hodson was arrested yesterday and booked in the county jail on
counts of manufacturing and possessing a destructive device and
criminal mischief. Little damage was done when the Molotov cocktail

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The first nationwide test of an emergency
broadcast signal flopped in Oregon. The Oregon Office of Emergency
Management said yesterday that reports from radio and television
stations around the state indicate most didn’t get the signal, or
did not get it well. The Federal Emergency Management Agency says
it is aware the broadcast did not work everywhere and is looking
into why.
