    Leviticus 22:25 Neither from a stranger's hand shall ye offer the bread of your God of any of these; because their corruptionis in them, and blemishes be in them: they shall not be accepted for you. For Donald Trump to fly out to America’s outback to give a speech tells what type of man he is. He is a man of his word and he told people he would be here so he flew six hours from Omaha of all places to give a speech that exhausted the crowd while he still looked fresh after going over an hour with...

    An ocean data buoy is alerting to an "event" in the Cascadia Subduction Zone off the west coast of Oregon. This is where a magnitude 9 earthquake hit in 1700.

    Detectives on Wednesday evening were still in the process of removing evidence, including a number of cellphones, as they worked to determine how two bodies ended up in a chest-style freezer at a Nicholas Drive home. From the doorway where police entered Tuesday to bring a man outside — identified as 38-year-old Jeremy Daniel Ringquist — a white freezer was apparent as police officers from both Springfield and Eugene went in and out of the garage through a broken doorframe. Detectives also performed a three dimensional scan of the scene, preserving images for future use. As of 5 p.m., the...

    Former U.S. postal worker who says he got ‘lazy’ sentenced It’s long been said that mail carriers deliver through snow, rain, heat and gloom of night. Maybe that’s because if they fail to do the job right, they could end up charged with a federal crime. A now-former U.S. Postal Service worker from ­Eugene learned that the hard way after police recovered nearly 1,000 pieces of undelivered mail from two bins on his front porch in July. The bins contained primarily merchant advertisements (or “junk” mail), but included 27 voter ballots from May’s primary election and more than 200 items...

    Woodstove owners in the Eugene-Springfield area have been pouring on the fuel during a cold snap, and air-quality regulators say a buildup of pollution means the burning has to be curbed. A ban on visible chimney smoke could last through Sunday, when warmer weather is expected. The ban imposed Thursday in Eugene-Springfield applies to the urban growth boundary. That includes numerous less-developed areas just outside city limits.

    Letter to the Editor: Obama is no ordinary weakling Those who compare the bare-chested conqueror of the Crimea with the metro-sexual ruler of the United States and find our emperor weak to the point of deserving ridicule, miss the essential strength of President Obama. It’s no ordinary weakling who can turn a once-respected country into an international joke; reduce Congress to a gaggle of sniveling sycophants; turn the world’s finest medical system into a failed third-rate socialist nightmare with a stroke of his pen; shatter our Constitution without attempted recourse by the sons and daughters of frontiersmen and pioneers whose...

    Keeping the peace is no easy task at Eugene’s Nobel Peace Park. The 24 plaques at the park that feature the American Nobel laureates have attracted attention from visitors and vandals alike since it opened in Alton Baker Park last spring, and the plaque representing the nation’s most recent laureate, President Obama, has been a prime target. “It got vandalized, I’d say, five, six, seven times,” said Roger Durant, the project’s development director, of the Obama plaque. Nearly “every two or three weeks, there was a new mark that we had to try to take off and rub out,” he...

    EUGENE, OR (KPTV) - A sign found hanging on an Interstate 5 overpass in Eugene sparked a debate about racism this week. The banner, found handing on a pedestrian bridge over the freeway, says "Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white." It wasn't immediately clear who put the sign there, but the regional NAACP president said the slogan is a sign of intolerance in our nation. "If it was speaking against anything, it was speaking against multiculturalism and I think multiculturalism is a strength of our country," said Eric Richardson, of the NAACP. The banner is now banned from the...

    An Oregon town's City Council voted down a proposal to say the Pledge of Allegiance before every council meeting, but later passed a compromise that seemed to make no one happy. The approved measure allows the pledge to be recited at just four Eugene City Council meetings a year, those closest to the Fourth of July, Veterans Day, Memorial Day and Flag Day. It was supposed to be simple, but Councilman Mike Clark soon found out when you’re dealing with God and country, nothing in Eugene is easy.

"I had this dog for seven years since he was a puppy and I never seen him aggressive toward any human being," said Spanky's owner, Christopher Robinson. Robinson said Spanky was gentle and never snappy, but the dog Robinson describes is a far cry from the dog a Eugene Police Department detective encountered on Tuesday. According to neighbors and Robinson, the detective stopped by Robinson's home to talk to him about an unrelated case involving one of his neighbors. Robinson said he wasn't home...

U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken commended Stanislas Meyerhoff for having the courage to “do the right thing” by informing on his fellow arsonists after his arrest, but declared that his efforts to save the earth by setting fires were misguided and cowardly, and contributed to an unfair characterization of others working legally to protect the environment as radicals. “It was...

    Defense attorneys expressed outrage Tuesday when federal prosecutors compared 10 Earth Liberation Front arsonists who are awaiting sentencing to Ku Klux Klan arsonists.

Targets included the Vail ski resort, wild horse corrals, National Forest ranger stations, meat packing plants, research laboratories, lumber company offices and a tree farm. The 10 are to be sentenced starting next week. Federal prosecutors asked Judge Ann Aiken that a so-called terrorism enhancement...
