Here is the latest Oregon news from The Associated Press


DUNDEE, Ore. (AP) – Authorities are investigating a multiple homicide in the Yamhill County community of Dundee. Police reporting the deaths last night said it appears there’s no threat to anyone else in the area. Capt. Jeff Kosmicki says friends of the victims asked police to check on their welfare. Police went to the scene and discovered the bodies.

WARRENTON, Ore. (AP) – Liquefied natural gas company Oregon LNG is changing its plans for an import facility in Warrenton. Oregon Public Broadcasting reports the company has sent federal regulators a preliminary application for an LNG export project. The filing indicates the new project would include both export and import facilities, and it would have a different pipeline route.

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) – A Medford man has come up with an unusual idea for a business. Richard Nuckols would like to make cannabis-infused candy and other treats for medical marijuana patients. But the Mail Tribune reports Medford Police Chief Tim George says the business violates federal and state medical marijuana laws, and the city denied Nuckols a business license.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) – The looming election season looks to bring a bit of deja vu to anyone who’s spent some time voting in Oregon. In the last three decades voters have decided against legalizing marijuana, building a new casino near Portland and banning gillnet fishing on the Columbia River. Variations on those ideas are among at least a half-dozen that appear to be on track to qualify for the ballot in November.
