Adrian is five foot seven inches tall, 135 pounds, with blue eyes and dyed reddish-brown hair. She has multiple tattoos including a depiction of herself tattooed on her upper right arm. She is also known to wear a red bandanna on her forehead.

AS WEATHER WARMS LIFE JACKETS ARE BACK ON LOAN AT HAGG LAKE (PHOTO)


News Release from Hillsboro Fire and Rescue

Starting today, due to expected warmer than normal temperatures, visitors to Hagg Lake in Washington County will have life jackets to borrow for their children who plan to swim in the popular lake thanks to the Safe Kids Washington County Coalition. Every year the group of public safety-minded volunteers provides personal floatation devices or PFDs at two Hagg Lake locations: the Sain Creek Picnic Area and Boat Ramp C Recreation Area.

"Both of these spots attract a lot of families with children," said Division Chief Dave Nemeyer, from nearby Forest Grove Fire & Rescue. "We want to ensure that the kids who swim here are safe."

Gaston Rural Fire District firefighters along with the Washington County Sheriff's Office Marine Patrol respond frequently to the lake for emergencies.

Safe Kids Washington County provides the loaner life jackets each summer in an effort to prevent drowning accidents from occurring.

"We know the jackets get used a lot," said Chief Nemeyer. "We want to remind citizens that it's important to return the jackets to the loaner stand when they are finished so that others may use them."

Area citizens have contributed both cash and children's life jackets to support the effort. Safe Kids Washington County, led by Hillsboro Fire Department, is a coalition of citizens and public safety educators whose mission is to reduce unintentional injuries and deaths in children ages 0-18 years.

Safe Kids Washington County urges parents to:
* Keep your eyes on your children at all times when they are near or in the water
* Stay within arm's reach of very small children when they are near or in the water
* Have your children wear U.S. Coast Guard - approved life jackets in and around open water.
* Watch your children even if they have had swimming lessons
* Have adults take turns being the "water watcher" when with a group of adults and children
* Learn swimming and safety skills, like Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation also known as CPR
* Have a cell phone with you when children are swimming. However, refrain from texting or talking while supervising children in swimming areas.

UPDATE: OSP ARRESTS GRANTS PASS MAN FOR MANSLAUGHTER, OTHER CHARGES IN MARCH 27TH ALCOHOL-INVOLVED WRONG WAY DRIVER FATAL CRASH


News Release from Oregon State Police
Posted on FlashAlert: April 30th, 2014 12:53 PM
Oregon State Police (OSP) arrested a 42-year old Grants Pass man Wednesday in connection with the investigation into the March 27, 2014, wrong way driver-involved traffic crash that took the life of a 58-year old Ashland woman and veteran dispatcher for Emergency Communications of Southern Oregon.

On April 30, 2014, OSP Criminal Investigations Division detectives and troopers arrested RICHARD WEBSTER SCOTT, age 42, for the following charges:

* Manslaughter in the First Degree
* DUII
* Recklessly Endangering Another Person
* Reckless Driving

SCOTT was lodged at the Jackson County Jail.

On March 27, 2014 at approximately 3:17 a.m., OSP, Jackson County Sheriff's Office, local fire and medical personnel, and ODOT were dispatched to a reported traffic crash involving a wrong way driver in the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 near milepost 24. Investigation indicated a silver 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan driven by SCOTT was driving northbound in the right hand southbound lane of Interstate 5 when it collided head-on with a southbound 2006 Honda Civic driven by KAREN LEE GREENSTEIN, age 58, from Ashland.

SCOTT was extricated from the vehicle and taken to Rogue Valley Medical Center with serious injuries. He was later transferred to a Portland-area hospital for treatment. After release from the hospital, he was being treated locally as he continued recovery from his injuries.

GREENSTEIN was ejected from her vehicle and pronounced deceased at the scene. GREENSTEIN worked over 20 years for several Jackson County-area emergency dispatch centers and was enroute home after completing her shift at Emergency Communications of Southern Oregon.

OSP was assisted at the scene by Jackson County Sheriff's Office, Medford Police Department, Jackson County District Attorney's Office, local fire personnel and ODOT.

No photograph available from jail for release at this time.

The family of a 44-year old man reported missing, possibly endangered who was last seen April 18, 2014, in the Wolf Creek area of Josephine County is offering a reward of up to $1,500 to help locate him.

TIMOTHY DALE FENIMORE, age 44, was last seen April 18 about 12 noon and is missing under suspicious circumstances. FEMINORE, who has previously lived in McMinnville, was visiting an area residence when he reportedly left on foot and has not been seen or heard from since that date.

Anyone with information to help find FENIMORE is asked to call OSP Southern Command Center dispatch at (541) 474-3174. OSP Criminal Investigations Division is assisted by Josephine County Sheriff's Office in this investigation. OSP Detective Deanna Harris is the lead investigator.

Update: Serious Injury Traffic Crash - Highway 97 in Madras (Photo)

UPDATE: SERIOUS INJURY TRAFFIC CRASH - HIGHWAY 97 IN MADRAS (PHOTO)


News Release from Oregon State Police
Posted on FlashAlert: April 30th, 2014 11:54 AM
Downloadable file: 042914.hwy97_madras.jpg
Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into Tuesday afternoon's serious injury traffic crash that occurred at the Highway 97 and NE Jefferson Street intersection in the north end of Madras. Three people were transported to a Bend-area hospital, one of which was critically injured. Alcohol is being investigated as a contributing factor for the offending driver in this crash.

On April 29, 2014 at approximately 3:45 p.m., a Chevrolet Trail Blazer driven by JUSTIN L. MILLER, age 31, from Warm Springs, was northbound on Highway 97 attempting to turn westbound onto NE Jefferson Street. The Chevrolet SUV turned in front of a southbound commercial truck driven by RODNEY D. JANTZEN, age 61, from Artois, California. The first collision forced the Chevrolet SUV back into the northbound lane where it was struck by a second commercial truck driven by KAMALPREET S. MANN, age 22, from Yuba City, California.

MILLER and passengers GRANT SMITH, age 56, and COBY TEWEE, age 26, all from Warm Springs, were transported by air ambulance to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend. SMITH was not using safety restraints and his injuries were critical. Safety restraint use by MILLER and TEWEE is pending confirmation, and both men's injuries are non-life threatening.

The two truck drivers were not injured. Both were using safety restraints.

Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers from the Madras and Bend offices responded to the scene. Senior Trooper Clint Prevett is the lead investigator.

OSP was assisted at the scene by Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, Madras Police Department, Jefferson County Fire District #1, Jefferson County EMS, and ODOT.

MORE THAN 7,500 LOCAL K-3 STUDENTS WILL LEARN ABOUT ELECTRICAL SAFETY


News Release from PGE

Downloadable file: Pedros_Path_to_Power_4.30.14_FINAL.pdf
Bilingual education play "Pedro's Path to Power" teaches kids to make smart choices

PORTLAND, Ore. -- In its fourth year, the successful bilingual interactive musical Pedro's Path to Power, written by Playwright Matthew B. Zrebski, aims to educate youth about electrical safety through song, dance and audience participation. A partnership between Portland General Electric and Oregon's Children Theatre, the production teaches kindergarten through third-grade students that they have the power to make smart, safe choices around electricity.

"Safety is one of our top priorities at PGE," said Kregg Arntson, PGE's corporate social responsibility manager. "Pedro's Path to Power is an exciting and fun way to teach children how electricity works and most importantly how to stay safe and make smart choices around electricity," said Kregg Arntson, PGE's corporate social responsibility manager.

With 44 shows at 36 different elementary schools in only four weeks this year's tour is reaching more students than ever before. The 30-minute play, free to schools, follows 7-year-old Pedro, played by new actor Rafael Miguel, as he travels on his path to power and learns about electricity. Pedro and his friend Serena, played by another new actress, Cassie Greer, are busy playing baseball when Pedro hits a homerun and the ball flies over the fence. As they climb over the fence to reach the ball they notice a "black snake," which Pedro's mom identifies as a downed power line. This sets the scene for Pedro and his path to understanding power and making safe choices.

"Oregon Children's Theatre is proud to partner with PGE for a fourth season of Pedro's Path to Power," said Stan Foote, OCT's artistic director. "As partners we believe in the power to teach life skills."

Electrical safety tips in Spanish and English help Pedro's Path to Power break both cultural and language barriers that students may face, and it helps all students to feel included in their schools and communities.

To learn more about the importance of being safe around electricity, visit PortlandGeneral.com/Safety, where you'll find helpful tips, reminders, and educational games for kids. For more information about other educational opportunities in the classroom visit PortlandGeneral.com/EnergyEducation.

Two juveniles asaulted in City Park by multiple assailants

TWO JUVENILES ASAULTED IN CITY PARK BY MULTIPLE ASSAILANTS


News Release from McMinnville Police Dept.
Posted on FlashAlert: April 30th, 2014 10:37 AM
On April 28th, 2014 at about 8:15 pm, McMinnville Officers responded to a report of a fight or disturbance in the creek bed area of City Park (140 NW Park Dr, McMinnville). The initial report was of approximately seven individuals assaulting a male and a female. McMinnville Officers managed to contact most of the involved individuals before they could leave the park.

Based on statements of those involved and of an independent witness, two females (ages 15 and 16) were with several adult and juvenile friends in the park. These two girls began verbally harassing a juvenile couple that was walking through the park. The fifteen year old female escalated the situation by shoving and then punching the male and threatening the female. He apparently responded with force to protect his girlfriend (fighting back and trying to keep her away from his girlfriend). That apparently upset the friends and about five males and females then chased down and assisted the initial juvenile female in assaulting the juvenile male.

The male and female victim were both transported to Willamette Valley Medical Center and received treatment for their injuries. These injuries included cuts and swelling including head injuries from getting punched and kicked in the head.

The two female juveniles that started the incident were both cited for Minor in Possession of Alcohol. They were also arrested and lodged in Juvenile Detention pending arraignment on the following charges:

Assault in the Third Degree
Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree

Officers were able to obtain a video recording of the incident and more arrests are anticipated.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Officer Galloway at 503-434-7307.

Criminal summons issued in 2013 Crestline Elementary School fire

CRIMINAL SUMMONS ISSUED IN 2013 CRESTLINE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FIRE


News Release from City of Vancouver
Posted on FlashAlert: April 30th, 2014 10:31 AM
Vancouver, Wash. - After 14 months of investigative work by the Vancouver Fire-Arson Unit, the Prosecuting Attorney's Office today issued a criminal summons to a juvenile on the charge of Arson II in February 3, 2013, fire at Crestline Elementary School (13003 SE 17th St.). The juvenile's first appearance in court is scheduled for 9 a.m. on May 21, 2014.

The Vancouver Fire Department responded the fire at Crestline Elementary School last year. The school was tragically consumed by the fire and eventually considered a total loss of approximately $8 million dollars.

Since then, the Vancouver Fire-Arson Unit, which is comprised of Vancouver Fire Department fire investigators and Vancouver Police officers, has actively worked the case. The unit determined the fire origin and cause, and followed up on hundreds of leads and interviews. In addition, the Fire-Arson Unit received assistance from federal Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Tobacco (ATF) investigators and, collectively, was able to identify two juveniles involved in setting the school on fire. The ATF also provided assistance by completing full scale fire testing at their federal lab in Virginia.

"The loss of Crestline Elementary School was extremely upsetting to the students, teachers, Evergreen School District administration and our community," said Vancouver Fire Marshall Heidi Scarpelli. "The Vancouver Fire Arson Unit worked hard to bring the incident to a resolution, and would like to thank the citizens who provided information regarding the fire, the Clark County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and the Oregon and Southwest Washington ATF office for their assistance."

A commercial truck driver was cited by Oregon State Police (OSP) after falling asleep and being involved in a non-injury traffic crash Wednesday morning on the northbound off ramp from Interstate 5 to Kruse Way south of Portland.

On April 30, 2014 at approximately 1:21 a.m., a Freightliner truck pulling a semi-trailer driven by ROBERT JORDAINE, age 50, from Eagle Creek, was northbound on Interstate 5 at the Highway 217 interchange when JORDAINE fell briefly fell asleep. Upon waking, the truck had traveled out of the traffic lane into the gore median between the freeway lanes and Kruse Way exit 292A. JORDAINE tried to continue onto the off ramp but lost control because he was traveling too fast. The truck and trailer rolled onto their side blocking the the off ramp.

JORDAINE was not injured. He was cited by OSP for Careless Driving.

OSP troopers from the Portland Area Command office responded to investigate. ODOT and a local tow company responded to coordinate off-loading the trailer's contents and remove the truck and semi-trailer.

The off ramp was closed approximately 6 hours before one lane was open.

OSP and ODOT urge drivers to watch for signs of drowsiness, including:

* Having problems focusing, blink frequently and/or have heavy eyelids.
* Drifting from you lane, swerve, tailgate and/or hit rumble strips.
* Having trouble remembering the last few miles driven.
* Missing exits or traffic signs.
* Having trouble keeping your head up.
* Yawing repeatedly.
* Rolling down the windows or turning up the radio to try to stay alert.

Here are some tips from the experts to prevent drowsy driving:

* Get a good night's sleep before you hit the road. Adequate sleep for most Americans means seven to nine hours.
* Going on a long drive? Use the buddy system - someone who is rested and awake for the journey and can take a turn behind the wheel or help identify the warning signs of fatigue.
* If your trip is several hundred miles, take a break every 100 miles or 1?1/2 - 2 hours. Do something to refresh yourself, like eating something cold or frozen (avoid sugary snacks!) or going for a 10-minute walk.
* Avoid alcohol and monitor your medications. Many people unknowingly take prescription and over-the-counter drugs that contribute to drowsiness - being aware of your medications' side effects can help you better manage your driving.
* Consume caffeine. The equivalent of two cups of coffee can increase alertness for several hours.
* Avoid driving at times when you would normally be asleep.

Public Alert: Cougar Sighting in Southwest Portland's Hayhurst Neighborhood

PUBLIC ALERT: COUGAR SIGHTING IN SOUTHWEST PORTLAND'S HAYHURST NEIGHBORHOOD


News Release from Portland Police Bureau
Posted on FlashAlert: April 30th, 2014 9:46 AM
This morning, Wednesday April 30, 2014, at 8:54 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the area of Pendleton Park, located at 6030 Southwest 55th Drive, on the report of a cougar in the neighborhood.

The caller reported seeing a large cougar walking through Pendleton Park at about 8:45 a.m.

Officers immediately called Hayhurst School, which is adjacent to Pendleton Park, to have staff initiate a precautionary lockdown to keep children safe.

Several officers searched the area and spoke to some neighbors, one of which told police that the cougar had been in the area the past few days.

Officers did not locate the cougar and after approximately 45 minutes released the school from lockdown.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) has some tips to remember about cougars: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/living_with/cougars.asp

ODFW advises the following if you encounter a cougar:

STOP - Never approach a cougar at any time for any reason.

STAY CALM - Face the cougar and do not turn your back towards it. Do not run. Running encourages it to chase.

APPEAR LARGE - Make yourself look large. Do not bend over or crouch down. Raise your hands. Hold your coat open. Hold small children.

FIGHT BACK - Fight back if attacked.

MAKE NOISE - Make noise while hiking to reduce the chance of surprising a cougar.

KEEP CHILDREN CLOSE - Always keep children close by and in sight.

AVOID WALKING ALONE

While there have been no other reported cougar sightings, the Portland Police Bureau would like community members to be aware of the possible sighting and encourages anyone seeing a cougar not to approach it but to immediately call 9-1-1.

The Portland Police Bureau, in partnership with Clear Channel Outdoor, has introduced a series of billboards around the community highlighting the police officers keeping the community safe. Clear Channel approached the Police Bureau about donating the space; the Police Bureau pays a nominal fee for the production materials.

The billboards are titled, "Your City. Your Police," and will be ongoing as space allows. The first nine billboards feature North Precinct Officer Madison Ceaser, and Youth Services Officers Trevor Tyler and Jessica Brainard. The billboards show a photo of the officers in their private life and then a photo of them in uniform. These officers volunteered to be featured on billboards and to provide a photo of themselves as youth.


"We are grateful to Clear Channel Outdoor for allowing us to use this space to highlight officers working in our community," said Chief Michael Reese. "These billboards provide us with the opportunity to put a face on Portland Police Officers and illustrate they are part of the community. These initial billboards feature three officers who grew up in the Portland area, but we hope to showcase many more officers who have joined the Police Bureau to protect and serve this community."

The first billboards are scheduled to be at the following locations:

Southeast Foster Road and 86th Avenue
Southeast Powell Blvd and 35th Place
North Lombard Street and Fenwick Avenue
Southeast Sandy Boulevard and Pine Street
Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Ainsworth Street
Northeast 82nd Avenue and Milton Street
Southeast 82nd Avenue and Ash Street
West Burnside Street and 16th Avenue
North Denver Avenue, North of the Columbia Slough

Oregon City Police Department works to improve pedestrian safety

OREGON CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT WORKS TO IMPROVE PEDESTRIAN SAFETY


News Release from Oregon City Police Dept.
Posted on FlashAlert: April 30th, 2014 8:42 AM
The Oregon City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on April 29th, 2014. This operation will be held on Washington St. near 12th St. in Oregon City, OR.

The primary focus of this operation is to raise pedestrian safety awareness. Through the use of a decoy pedestrian, the Oregon City Police Department hopes to raise awareness of the drivers and pedestrians through education and enforcement of the pedestrian right away laws. The operation will be conducted between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. Warning signs will be posted prior to entering the pedestrian safety operation zone.

As a reminder, motorists must stop and yield to pedestrians who are waiting to cross, or are crossing the roadway. Motorists are required to stop at all crosswalks when there is a vehicle already stopped in a lane adjacent to the lane they are traveling in.

The members of the Oregon City Police Department are dedicated to enhancing the safety of both the citizens and guests of the city. Funding for the pedestrian safety operation is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact.


UPDATE:

The Oregon City Police Department conducted the first of two pedestrian safety enforcement operations of the year which is funded by Oregon Impact.

The primary focus of this operation was to educate drivers and help raise awareness of the pedestrian right away laws. The OCPD used a pedestrian decoy while another police officer observed traffic violations occurring and radioed awaiting uniform officers to make the stop. The officers issued citations or warnings to help educate the violators. The overwhelming majority of drivers stopped for the pedestrian decoy which was good to see.

The safety operation occurred at the intersection of Washington x 12th between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. The operation resulted in 20 drivers being stopped. The violations included 4 citations issued for fail to stop or remained stopped for a pedestrian, 9 warnings for fail to stop or remained stop for a pedestrian, 2 driving while using a Mobile communication device, one citation for Fail to obey traffic control device, 2 citations for fail to carry/present vehicle registration and 5 other traffic warnings.

This intersection was specifically selected for the pedestrian safety operation due to heavy foot traffic, heavy motor vehicle traffic and this intersection was the location of a Fatality auto/PED crash a few months earlier.

The next pedestrian safety operation will take place sometime in July. The exact date, time and location will be announced at a later date.
