UNDATED (AP) – The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a 4.7-magnitude earthquake struck part of the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge early today in northern Nevada, about 40 miles southeast of Lakeview, Oregon.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Lane County health officials say a Eugene man who apparently got the measles on a trip to Disney theme parks in California has named four local businesses where workers and patrons might have been exposed. They include a grocery store and a restaurant. Several dozen measles cases are reported in western states and Mexico.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Silverton Hospital in Silverton, Oregon, says about 10 patients suffered burns because staff didn’t replace filters on lights in three of the hospital’s operating rooms. The first cases of skin burns came to the hospital’s attention the following June, and a hospital investigation pinpointed the cause five months later.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The University of Oregon says that two unnamed employees have been put on leave after the illegal release of 22,000 pages of records from the president’s office. A university spokesman says the records weren’t reviewed to see whether releasing them would violate privacy laws. The records include correspondence with students and their parents.
