PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A spokesman with the U.S. Coast Guard says the search for two men still missing after a fishing boat struck a jetty has been suspended. He says crews completed a search by helicopter and boat that covered the area around the crash site near the entrance to Coos Bay, Oregon. The search could be restarted if authorities receive new information.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Oracle Inc., the primary tech contractor on the failed Cover Oregon health insurance exchange portal, is again suing Oregon. In a lawsuit, Oracle claims the state reneged on a settlement agreement that was allegedly reached in October. The software giant claims the agreement was made verbally with Gov. Kate Brown’s former chief of staff. Oregon’s Attorney General says there never was a settlement agreement.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The stepmother of missing Oregon boy Kyron Horman says she has no answers on his location. Terri Horman took Kyron to his Portland school in June 2010. The 7-year-old never returned home and a massive search came up empty. Investigators have focused on Horman from the beginning, but she hasn’t been charged with a crime or been labeled a suspect.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Portland’s top attorney says the city is legally obligated to keep buying parking meters from a Swedish company despite a bribery scandal. The Oregonian reports that questions about Cale Group and its meters have lingered since the city’s former parking manager was sent to prison for taking bribes from the company. The City Attorney says Portland has no legal ground to end its contract.
