ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) – The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory for the north and central Oregon coast and the south Washington coast. The advisory is in effect through 10:00 tonight. Waves could reach as high as 35 feet with dangerous conditions on beaches and jetties.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A federal judge hears today from people affected by a proposed settlement involving employment for people with developmental disabilities. The settlement stems from a class-action lawsuit filed in 2012 alleging that Oregon relies too heavily on so-called “sheltered workshops,” where people with disabilities work almost exclusively with disabled co-workers.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Federal agents are releasing an age-progression photo of a fugitive facing charges related to multiple fire bombings in the late 1990s that were part of a massive eco-sabotage campaign. The Oregonian reports the photo created by the FBI depicts Josephine Overaker as she might look today. Overaker is accused of involvement in eight fire bombings from 1996 to 1999. Overaker allegedly worked with the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Diego Valeri scored at the 27-second mark for the fastest goal in MLS Cup history and the Portland Timbers won the league title for the first time, beating the Columbus Crew 2-1 yesterday. Rodney Wallace made it 2-0 in the seventh minute, and the Crew scored in the 18th. But the early deficit was too much for Columbus to overcome.
