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

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.
