I apologize for any inconvenience, the suspects name in this case is Edward Francis West.

***************

Edward Francis West, 59, of Salem is in custody after alledgley slapping a juvenile and then later pointing a firearm at him last Sunday at about 4:00 p.m. The disturbance began after two, 17 year old juveniles, crossed the street in front of Mr. Francis's truck on Center Street near Lancaster Drive NE in Salem.

For unknown reasons Mr. West yelled at the boys to get out of the street and when they yelled back he drove into the parking lot at Roth's Market and confronted the two boys. A verbal altercation between the boys and Mr. West took place but after Mr. Francis began pushing and eventually slapping one of the males they attempted to leave the area.

That is when it is alleged that Mr. West went back to his truck and grabbed a small black handgun and pointed it at the boys stating, "Get ready to die." According to reports, a Good Samaritan saw the altercation and stopped to help the boys. The Samaritan was riding a motorcycle and used his helmet to knock the gun away from Mr. West allowing the boys to run away from the area.

The Sheriff's Office is asking for your help in locating the Good Samaritan or any other witnesses to this incident. The Samaritan is reported to be a male riding a green motorcycle. Unfortunately, the boys were unable to get any further description of the rider. Mr. West is lodged at the Marion County Jail where he is set to be arraigned for the crimes of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Menacing, Assault IV and Harassment.

Anyone with information can call Deputy Banks at 503-576-7243.

It's time to play at Nadaka Nature Park (Photo)

IT'S TIME TO PLAY AT NADAKA NATURE PARK (PHOTO)


News Release from City of Gresham
Posted on FlashAlert: March 31st, 2015 3:46 PM
Downloadable file: Friends of Nadaka leader Lee Dayfield

GRESHAM, Ore. - Nadaka Nature Park will host a grand opening on Saturday, April 4, to celebrate completion of the park and community garden as well as the unusual and uplifting partnerships that brought down the barbed wire around an urban forest and reclaimed it - and improved it - for the public.

The community is invited to celebrate from 10 a.m. to noon at Nadaka, a City of Gresham park located at Northeast 175th Avenue and Northeast Glisan Street in the City's Wilkes East neighborhood. The new nature-based play area and community garden will be open for the first time, tempting kids of all ages to climb, ride, build and jump on boulders, totem poles, a log cabin and a life-sized canoe carved from local cedar. A sand pit, 50-plot community garden and covered picnic area are also part of the park renovation, which was designed by MIG, a Portland design and planning firm.

The celebration is public - because the park is. About 75 percent of the funds used to create Nadaka came from bond measures to support parks that were passed by voters in Gresham and across the region in 1990, 1995 and 2006.

At the grand opening, Gresham Mayor Shane Bemis will speak, along with Friends of Nadaka Leader Lee Dayfield; Metro Councilor Shirley Craddick; Audubon Society of Portland Urban Conservationist Jim Labbe; Columbia Slough Watershed Council Executive Director Jane Van Dyke; and East Multnomah County Soil and Water Conservation District Executive Director Jay Udelhoven.

Raptors from the Audubon Society will be on hand, along with nature educators from Audubon and the Columbia Slough Watershed Council's Slough School. Experts from the Oregon Natural Play Initiative, or ONPlay, will demonstrate the possibilities for fun that nature-based play areas provide. Children can sow spring seeds in the park, families can sign up for garden plots, and everyone can enjoy free refreshments. After the celebration, the community is invited to stay and play all day.

"We made it to this day because of the magic of the park," Dayfield said. "You walk out of the city into the forest, and it's green and quiet and shady. Nadaka really is an oasis. People respond to that peacefulness - and spread the spirit."

Nadaka is a 12-acre park located in a dense, diverse neighborhood in northwest Gresham, and is a half-mile walk for about 4,500 people, many of them children. Nadaka is home to owls and more than a dozen other species of birds, along with salamanders, possums and frogs.

Nadaka is short for "nature day kamp" - a name given to the property by Camp Fire, which ran a summer program for girls on the property from 1956 to 1995. In 1995, Camp Fire sold its 10 acres to the City, which used $500,000 from the 1990 Gresham Open Space Bond to pay for the property. After years of being closed to the public, the City in 2001 opened the north gate and built a quarter-mile loop trail through the firs.

Dayfield got involved in 2008, forming the community group Friends of Nadaka.

Dayfield marshalled the assistance of hundreds of individuals and organizations to help refurbish the site by clearing weeds and debris, planting and installing trash cans and signs. In 2009, Friends of Nadaka raised enough money from Metro through its Regional Natural Area Bond Measure, the East Multnomah Soil and Conservation District and the T.A. Nelson Estate to purchase two acres on the south side of the property from the Nelson family.

The purchase opened the park to busy Glisan Street and the Rockwood neighborhood, increasing public access by 50 percent. This two-acre parcel now holds the nature-based play area and community garden, which was largely paid for with a grant from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. Meyer Memorial Trust provided grants to support park planning, as well as partial funding for a new full-time park coordinator.

In 2011, 17 community organizations and local governments, including the City, signed the Nadaka Nature Park and Garden Project Declaration of Cooperation. This unique agreement set out the vision for the new construction and a plan to jointly manage and operate the park for five years.

"The community created this park, with support from the public, private and non-profit sectors, and that cooperation is a testament to the passion and persistence of Lee Dayfield and the people of Gresham," Mayor Shane Bemis said. "Bringing nature and play to our children and families is a major priority for Gresham this year, so this celebration is as welcome as spring."

Murase Plaza Gets New Safer and Accessible Playground Equipment

MURASE PLAZA GETS NEW SAFER AND ACCESSIBLE PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT


News Release from City of Wilsonville
Posted on FlashAlert: March 31st, 2015 3:10 PM
WILSONVILLE, OR -- On Monday, March 30, contractors working on behalf of the City of Wilsonville began work to install new playground equipment at Murase Plaza in Memorial Park. The new playground equipment includes two large-themed structures and a 12-foot-long embankment slide that are safe for all age groups. The new structures are designed to be inclusive for use by persons with physical and developmental disabilities. The new equipment replaces a number of the existing elements at the playground including the large metal slide and the red dome that are in poor condition and pose safety concerns.

The new play structures, approved for acquisition by the City Council on December 1, 2014, have a barn and cattle ranch theme that compliments the nearby Stein-Boozier Barn. The equipment, manufactured by Portland-based Columbia-Cascade, features post-consumer recycled plastic support posts and stainless steel fixtures. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of April.

To view images of the new playground equipment, please visit the Wilsonville Parks and Recreation Department's projects page at: www.WilsonvilleParksandRec.com/Projects.

Oregon State Hospital patients settle into Junction City and Salem campuses; Portland campus closes

OREGON STATE HOSPITAL PATIENTS SETTLE INTO JUNCTION CITY AND SALEM CAMPUSES; PORTLAND CAMPUS CLOSES


News Release from Oregon Health Authority
Posted on FlashAlert: March 31st, 2015 2:48 PM
March 31, 2015

Today was a historic day for Oregon State Hospital, with the last 57 patients of its Portland campus transferring to the facility in Salem. The patients are moving into units recently vacated when the new Oregon State Hospital campus in Junction City opened March 11.

Oregon State Hospital provides intensive psychiatric treatment for adults with severe mental illness. Patients from throughout the state receive 24-hour on-site services that help them stabilize and successfully transition back to their lives in the community.

Today's move was the last in a series that began in January 2011 when the first patients moved to the new building in Salem. In 2007, the Oregon Legislature authorized construction of two new psychiatric facilities, one in Salem and one in Junction City. The successful completion of both locations culminates 10 years of planning and development.

The new facilities were designed to provide a therapeutic environment and support the active treatment necessary for people to recover from mental illness. The new building in Salem has the capacity to serve up to 620 people, and the new building in Junction City can serve up to 174.

The closure of the Oregon State Hospital site in Portland will not affect the ability of people in the Portland metro area to receive hospital-level psychiatric care. The state hospital will continue to admit patients from throughout Oregon.

The Oregon State Hospital campus in Salem will take possession of the archived medical records of patients who received services at the Portland campus. Former patients who wish to obtain copies of their medical records should mail or fax their request to:

Oregon State Hospital
Health Information Department
Room B01-252
2600 Center Street NE
Salem, OR 97301

Downloadable file: Karissa_Wetzel_24.jpg
The driver arrested after this morning's vehicle and foot pursuit has been identified as 26-year-old Jarid Dean Easton. Easton was transported from the scene to a Portland hospital for treatment for a drug-related medical issue. Easton will be booked into the Multnomah County Jail on several charges upon his release from the hospital.

The passenger, 24-year-old Karissa Rose Wetzel, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Possession of Heroin, Unlawful Entry into a Motor Vehicle, Escape in the Third Degree, and Interfering with a Peace Officer.

Investigating officers discovered that the pick-up truck was stolen overnight from a business in Tigard, Oregon and the trailer was stolen from a U-Haul lot near the scene of the burglary alarm on Johnson Creek Boulevard.

Burglary detectives are continuing to investigate any connection to commercial burglaries related to this pursuit and arrest.

###PPB###

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

On Tuesday March 31, 2015, at 6:00 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the report of a burglary alarm at Maids by Trade, located at 4439 Southeast Johnson Creek Boulevard.

A Portland officer arrived in the area, along with a cover unit from the Milwaukie Police Department, as a pick-up truck pulling a flat bed trailer pulled out of the business lot. Concerned the occupants of the vehicle may be related to the burglar alarm, officers initiated a traffic stop of the vehicle.

The driver did not stop for officers and led them on a pursuit throughout Southeast Portland. An officer was able to deploy Spike Strips to deflate tires during the pursuit.

At Southeast Grand Avenue and Couch Street, the driver crashed into a Broadway Cab, and both vehicles came to a stop. The driver, a male adult, and his passenger, a female adult, got out of the truck and attempted to flee on foot but were quickly captured. Neither they or the cab driver were injured in the crash.

Traffic Division officers are investigating the crash and Burglary detectives are responding to investigate the burglary.

Northbound Grand Avenue, near Couch, will be affected for a short time as investigators process the crash scene. One lane remains open.

Updates will be provided later Tuesday morning.

Red Ctoss Home Fire Preparedness Campaign Brings Free Smoke Alarms to Newport (Photo)

RED CTOSS HOME FIRE PREPAREDNESS CAMPAIGN BRINGS FREE SMOKE ALARMS TO NEWPORT (PHOTO)


News Release from American Red Cross - Cascades Region
Posted on FlashAlert: March 31st, 2015 10:50 AM
Downloadable file: Red Cross volunteer installs free smoke alarm as part of community outreach home fire preparedness campaign
The American Red Cross and the Newport Fire Department will install free smoke alarms and provide fire safety education to residents on April 11, and community members and organizations are invited to help.


PORTLAND - March 31, 2015 - Did you know that if a fire starts in your home, you may have just two minutes to escape?

The Red Cross in Oregon and Southwest Washington responds to an average of two home fires every day. After these fires, residents had to face finding a place to stay, purchasing food and clothing, replacing lost possessions, notifying loved ones and navigating insurance. More importantly, more than 60 percent of fire deaths occur in homes without a working smoke alarm.

On Saturday, April 11, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., trained Red Cross volunteers will be canvassing neighborhoods in Newport's 97365 ZIP code to inquire if there is a working smoke alarm in the home, to install smoke alarms free of charge, review a fire safety and home hazard checklist, and provide information about creating a fire escape plan. In addition, volunteers will share additional home fire and other emergency-preparedness information with residents.

Residents in any part of the 97365 ZIP code may also schedule an appointment by calling
(503)528-5783. Residents will receive a one-hour appointment window.

Volunteers are needed for this important outreach effort. Training will be provided at 10 a.m. the dayof the event. Individuals, faith-based groups, local business and organizations are welcome to participate. For additional info or to register to volunteer, visit. www.redcross.org/cascadeshfpc.

According to Chris Rampley, fire prevention officer with the Newport Fire Department, home fires cause devastating losses in the community. "Many homes don't have working smoke alarms to alert occupants about fire. This is an excellent opportunity to save lives," says Chris.

The American Red Cross has launched a national campaign to reduce the number of fire deaths and injuries by 25 percent over the next five years. This campaign is in conjunction with the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal and the local fire department in Newport will be stepping up to join the Red Cross

The Red Cross advocates emergency preparedness: Get informed. Make a Plan. Build a Kit., and suggests taking a few moments to review your family's exit plan should there be a fire in your home. Know what to do before, during and after a home fire. This information, and more, is available at www.redcross.org or in a free Prepare! Resource Guide published by the American Red Cross Cascades Region. The guide can be downloaded at http://rdcrss.org/1zq8XW6.


About the American Red Cross:
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Bike Theft Task Force: A Community Partnership to Reduce Bike Theft in Portland (Photo)

BIKE THEFT TASK FORCE: A COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP TO REDUCE BIKE THEFT IN PORTLAND (PHOTO)


News Release from Portland Police Bureau
Posted on FlashAlert: March 31st, 2015 10:30 AM
Downloadable file: BTTF.jpg
On Tuesday March 31, 2015, at 10:30 a.m. the Portland Police Bureau announced a new initiative to address the growing problem of bike theft in Portland.

The Bicycle Theft Task Force (BTTF) is community/police partnership, involving Jonathan Maus (BikePortland.org), J. Allard (Project529.com), Bryan Hance (BikeIndex.org), Danielle Booth (Portland Bureau of Transportation), and Central Precinct Officers David Sanders and David Bryant.

"We're here because we have seen an alarming rise in the number of bikes being stolen in Portland," said Chief Larry O'Dea. "Our data shows that we had over 2,700 reported bike thefts in 2014 and bike theft is costing Portlanders an estimated $2 million every year. We're also here today because the crime of bike theft is often tied to drug use, home burglaries, and other criminal behaviors."

The Portland Police Bureau has established a new webpage for this partnership, called the Bicycle Theft Task Force (BTTF): http://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/66825

The Portland Bureau of Transportation has established a new webpage to provide bike theft prevention advice and helpful tips, www.endbiketheft.org

"People should be able ride their bikes to where they need to go, whether that is a school, store or work, and feel confident that their bike will be there when they return," said Transportation Director Leah Treat. "If people don't feel confident about the safety of their bicycles, they will not ride them. We want to help people understand how to prevent bike theft and how we all can help police recover stolen bikes."

Additionally, the Bureau has created a Twitter handle specifically for BTTF (@PPBBikeTheft) to enhance community engagement around bicycle theft.

Victims of bike theft or a bike prowl (items of value stolen from your bike) are encouraged to file a police report online by visiting http://www.portlandpolice.com

The goal of this effort is to increase awareness about bike theft issues, share important information to help prevent bike theft and to provide resources for reporting bike theft and related issues.

POLICE RESPONDING TO BURGLARY ALARM PURSUE SUSPICIOUS VEHICLE LEAVING SCENE - TWO DETAINED


News Release from Portland Police Bureau
Posted on FlashAlert: March 31st, 2015 6:42 AM
On Tuesday March 31, 2015, at 6:00 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the report of a burglary alarm at Maids by Trade, located at 4439 Southeast Johnson Creek Boulevard.

A Portland officer arrived in the area, along with a cover unit from the Milwaukie Police Department, as a pick-up truck pulling a flat bed trailer pulled out of the business lot. Concerned the occupants of the vehicle may be related to the burglar alarm, officers initiated a traffic stop of the vehicle.

The driver did not stop for officers and led them on a pursuit throughout Southeast Portland. An officer was able to deploy Spike Strips to deflate tires during the pursuit.

At Southeast Grand Avenue and Couch Street, the driver crashed into a Broadway Cab, and both vehicles came to a stop. The driver, a male adult, and his passenger, a female adult, got out of the truck and attempted to flee on foot but were quickly captured. Neither they or the cab driver were injured in the crash.

Traffic Division officers are investigating the crash and Burglary detectives are responding to investigate the burglary.

Northbound Grand Avenue, near Couch, will be affected for a short time as investigators process the crash scene. One lane remains open.

Updates will be provided later Tuesday morning.

Downloadable file: Sumpter_Fire_1.jpg
On March 29, 2015, shortly after noon, Oregon State Police (OSP) Senior Trooper Brad Duncan of the Fish & Wildlife Division in Baker City, was patrolling in the town of Sumpter, southwest of Baker City, when he saw what appeared to be a vehicle on fire with three people standing nearby. One person was attempting to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher but was not having any success. Senior Trooper Duncan told the people to get away from the now fully engulfed vehicle for their own safety. As he did so he noticed a large propane tank between the residence and the vehicle which he feared may explode.

Senior Trooper Duncan learned the residence was owned by an 81-year-old woman who was believed to still be inside the home. As the fire spread to the residence, Sr. Trooper Duncan and Firefighter David Stellman of the Sumpter Valley Fire Department went to the door to inquire and Senior Trooper Duncan went inside to look for the woman.

Shortly after entering the home, Senior Trooper Duncan located the woman and her son still inside the residence. The woman was seated in a chair and her son told Senior Trooper Duncan she was unable to stand or walk on her own. As smoke poured into the residence through the door and the house began to burn, Senior Trooper Duncan carried the woman out of the house and to his patrol vehicle. Later on, Sumpter Valley Fire Department was able to extinguish the fire.

During the investigation it was determined the fire was started while an occupant of the residence was working on the fuel system of a vehicle. Red Cross arrived to assist the occupants.

OSP was assisted by the Sumpter Valley Fire Department and the Red Cross. Firefighter Stellman was contacted and approved the use of his name for this release.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month (Photo)

APRIL IS CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH (PHOTO)


News Release from Marion Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted on FlashAlert: March 30th, 2015 5:07 PM
Downloadable file: Child_Abuse_Prevention_Month_-_Ribbon_Hanging_8am.jpg
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Local organizations including the Family Building Blocks, Liberty House, Salem-Keizer School District 24-J, the Department of Human Services, Marion County Community Services Department, the Marion County Sheriff's Office, the City of Salem Police Department and the Hands and Words are not for Hurting Project will spearhead activities during the month of April as part of a national "Child Abuse Prevention Month" effort.

On Wednesday, April 1st, officials will gather at 8:00 am, as PGE personnel begin to hang blue ribbons from a tree located on the northwest corner of the State Capitol. The ribbons will symbolize the 10,630 confirmed victims of child abuse in the State of Oregon in 2013.

Below are a few tips that can help prevent child abuse.

1. Help yourself. If the big and little problems of your everyday life pile up to the point you feel overwhelmed or out of control - take time out. Don't take it out on your child. Seek help and care for yourself so that you will be able to be more effective for your child.

2. Monitor your child's activities. Keep the computer in a family area where you can keep an eye on its use. Supervise all internet and cell phone activities closely. Be choosy about television and video viewing: watching violent films, TV programs, and video games can harm young children.

3. Help a friend, neighbor, or relative. Being a parent isn't easy. Offer a helping hand to take care of children so the parent(s) can rest or spend time together.

More information on combating child abuse can be found at www.parentforthefuture.com. The public and media are invited to attend the event on Monday, project organizers will be on hand to distribute information. Come join us and help us prevent child abuse!

Pedestrians are encouraged to utilize marked crosswalks, cross only with applicable signals, and be extremely vigilant of the traffic around them.

Clark County Sheriff's Office Central Precinct will close to public access

CLARK COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE CENTRAL PRECINCT WILL CLOSE TO PUBLIC ACCESS


News Release from Clark Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted on FlashAlert: March 30th, 2015 8:14 AM
Effective April 6th, 2015, the Clark County Sheriff's Office Central Precinct will be closed to public access.
Central Precinct, located at 11608 NE 149th Street in Brush Prairie, opened in 1995 and was intended to be a temporary location for deputies while a new precinct was built. Funding was never approved for the new location, which has since become the permanent home for about 40 deputies and one support staff. The forty-one year old building was originally constructed as a manufacturing facility, and Central Precinct occupies what used to be the office portion of that business.
Even with some cosmetic upgrades over its history, the precinct does not have a community room, waiting area, or even a public restroom. The stairwell to the second story does not meet fire codes, and the upstairs briefing room only allows for nine occupants at any one time.
While deputies will continue to meet at the precinct, the facilities are not adequate to meet the needs of the growing population that live in the area of Clark County east of Northeast 50th Avenue.
"It's important for our citizens to understand that we are not closing Central Precinct," said Undersheriff Mike Cooke. "Our deputies will continue to be based at and respond out of the Central Precinct. The facility is simply not adequate for public access."
Patrol staffing will remain unchanged, and Sheriff Atkins remains committed to providing the same level of service as before the closure. In addition, the Sheriff's Office provides the ability for citizens to use online reporting for minor offenses and the public is always encouraged to call 911 if a deputy response is needed. CCSO West Precinct, at 505 NW 179th Street, will continue to be open to walk-ins and by phone during regular business hours.
The Clark County Sheriff's Office has two locations open to the public:
CCSO Headquarters/Main Jail
707 W. 13th Street
Vancouver, WA 98660
360-397-2211

CCSO West Precinct

Officers arrived in the area and contacted the adult male suspect, who provided a fake name to police that came back with a warrant. Officers told the man he was under arrest and he ran away towards the Willamette River, jumping in from the riverbank. The man appeared to be attempting to swim away but did not appear to be a good swimmer and came back to shore and hid along the riverbank in bushes.

Additional officers, a Police K-9 Unit, and boats from Portland Fire & Rescue and the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office responded to assist in locating the suspect. He was located a short time later and taken into custody without incident. Medical personnel transported him to a Portland hospital for treatment after exposure to the cold river water.

After his release from the hospital, he will be booked into the Multnomah County Jail, charges to be determined.
