CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — A Corvallis nursing home wants to limit visits by relatives while the staff contends with an outbreak of colds that has left nearly a third of its 69 residents sick.

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — The number of licensed pets has increased in Jackson County because of an ordinance that makes it mandatory for veterinarians to report dog rabies shots.

Oregon law requires all dogs older than 6 months to be licensed and vaccinated against rabies.
