RENO, Nev.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Multnomah County deputies have made eight arrests at what they say is a known gathering place for white supremacist gangs.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Police in Portland are asking the public’s help to locate a large parakeet reported stolen from his cage outside his owners’ home. The unidentified owners of “Josey” say their 14-inch Derbyan parakeet vanished around mid-day Tuesday. Josey reportedly can say a few words, although police did not say what they were.
