    An improvised explosive device blew out windows and ignited a small fire at the Jackson County prosecutor's office in Medford, Ore., Wednesday, but authorities said the damage could have been far worse had it ignited a large propane tank at the scene. No injuries were reported as a result of the blast, which occurred at about 4:30 a.m. Local and state police and the FBI and ATF are currently investigating. Law enforcement sources familiar with the case said there was no immediate claim of responsibility and as of yet, there are no suspects, but they are attempting to determine if...

  • Staples vs. paper clips a hot-button issue in Jackson County

    "It's one of the few issues that's considered fatal in campaign filing," said Jackson County Clerk Larry Reinhardt. "In essence the law says if these are not permanently bound the candidates will not be allowed on the ballot." That is why four republican candidates won't be on the ballot in November. The Jackson County Electoral Board said paper clips on the candidates' filing papers weren't permanent enough.

    U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver's car wash headache is raging once again. The bank that loaned the Kansas City congressman and his wife $1.3 million in 2002 to buy the Grandview Auto Wash at 12204 Blue Ridge Extension is now demanding payment of more than $1.5 million, after the Cleavers repeatedly fell behind on repaying the loan. The suit, filed last week in Jackson County Circuit Court, said the demand for repayment came after three attempts to delay foreclosure. Bank of America also is seeking attorney’s fees and a receiver to protect collateral. “The Cleaver Company failed and refused, and continues...

    Jackson County Commissioners decided in a 4-1 vote Monday night to put up a Ten Commandments display in the Jackson County Administrative Building. Commissioner Stacey Britt proposed the display as a means of supporting the Barrow County Commission, currently embroiled in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union claiming that a Ten Commandments display within the Barrow County Courthouse is unconstitutional. But the Jackson County display will have a significant difference from the Barrow County display. While the Ten Commandments are displayed solo in a breezeway within the Barrow County Courthouse, the Jackson County display will hang alongside...
