Here is the latest Oregon news from The Associated Press
DALLAS, Ore. (AP) – The Polk County sheriff’s office says it’s
checking missing-person cases as it tries to identify the body of a
man found in the Willamette River last night by a boater. Deputies
say the body of a man in his 20s was spotted along a flooded tree
line about a half-mile northeast of the Salem Yacht Club.
SALEM, Ore. (AP) – The Oregon Legislature has bought into Gov.
John Kitzhaber’s ideas for redesigning the state’s health care
system for low-income patients. Now, it’s about to become plain how
many Oregon care providers are ready to put his vision into
practice. Regional groups that want a piece of the redesigned
Oregon Health Plan must declare their intentions by the end of
today or miss their chance until next year.
MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) – Medford officials have ordered a methadone
clinic to shut down after the city discovered it is too close to a
day care center. The Medford Mail Tribune reports the clinic
calculated it was about 1,200 feet from the day care center in its
original application. But the city found it was less than 900 feet
PRINEVILLE, Ore. (AP) – With Facebook’s first data center in
Prineville up and running and a second being built next door, local
officials are looking to cement central Oregon as a hub for data
centers. In all, central Oregon’s ability to keep up its developing
reputation as a data center hub will depend on whether its power,
fiber optic lines and water systems can support the burgeoning
industry, but officials are optimistic.
