OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) – Clackamas County deputies say the man who died after falling about 1,000 feet on Mount Hood was an “extremely experienced” mountaineer from Portland.

MILWAUKIE, Ore. (AP) – Police in the Portland suburb of Milwaukie say a car came crashing into a house last evening, passing within 20 feet of the spot where two residents were sitting.
