BOISE, Idaho (AP) -Authorities have finished their second day of searching for a small plane that disappeared in the mountains of central Idaho.

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) – A task force including ranchers and the Klamath Tribes is wrapping up work on recommendations to end conflicts over water in the Upper Klamath Basin. Gov. John Kitzhaber and others are to join the group today to announce an agreement in principal. It addresses ways to prevent a repeat of last summer, when irrigation water was shut off to upper basin ranches.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A megaload of oil refinery equipment bound for western Canada has been halted again in northeast Oregon. This time the problem is weather, not protesters. The rig parked south of Pendleton yesterday. A spokeswoman for Omega Morgan said no travel was planned due to wintry weather that blanketed roads in snow and ice.
