PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A man listed on state records as a
predatory sex offender and charged with stabbing a 10-year-old boy
Sunday in Portland was on parole for a 1990s case involving
accusations he tried to infect children with HIV. Police arrested
49-year-old Adam Lee Brown after a two-hour standoff at a fast-food

OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) – A Clackamas County sheriff’s spokesman
says a 64-year-old man was found dead after he fell from an 80-foot
cliff above the Clackamas River in Oregon City, Ore. The man who
died Monday was identified as Scott Anderson of Oregon City. The
body was recovered and is in the possession of the county medical
examiner. An investigation is under way.
JORDAN VALLEY, Ore. (AP) – A YouTube video shot by animal rights
activists at a rodeo in eastern Oregon has renewed debate over a
ban on what’s called horse tripping. The Oregonian reports the
event has cowboys lassoing horses around their necks and forelegs.
The video shows horses crashing in the dirt, sometimes on their
snouts and heads. Opponents call it cruel.
TENMILE, Ore. (AP) – Some landowners in Southern Oregon say a
proposed natural gas pipeline is frustrating them. The 36-inch
underground Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline would connect a gas hub
in Klamath County and a terminal at Coos Bay. It was originally
designed for importing liquefied natural gas, but now it’s aimed at
exporting newly discovered domestic reserves.
