Cornelius Schools Open with Traffic Changes (Photo)

CORNELIUS SCHOOLS OPEN WITH TRAFFIC CHANGES (PHOTO)


News Release from Washington Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted on FlashAlert: August 31st, 2015 3:08 PM
Downloadable file: New School Zone Photo
August 31, 2015--Washington County Sheriff's Deputies serving the city of Cornelius, reminds drivers that all Cornelius Schools will be back in session September 1st.

The Cornelius Police Department asks everyone to be safe and extra cautious as schools begin Tuesday. There has been a new flashing speed advisory sign (photo inset) placed on North Adair in front of Cornelius Elementary school. Drivers need to pay attention and watch for all school zone flashing lights and signs advising the busiest times for children to be present. Drivers should also be alert for school buses to stop often and unexpectedly.

Children are the least predictable pedestrians and the most difficult to see. Take extra care to look out for children not only in school zones, but also in residential areas, playgrounds and parks. Many children ride their bicycle to school and may be in the roadway, sidewalk or behind a vehicle as it backs out of a driveway.

Every year Washington County Sheriff's Deputies respond to complaints of speeding drivers in school zones. A number of the speeding drivers are parents dropping their children off at school. Plan ahead and expect traffic delays around all schools, especially during the first week. Drivers are reminded to stop behind the crosswalk and not obstruct the designated area causing children to walk around their vehicle.

Drivers are cautioned that speeding in a school zone doubles the presumptive fine.

Fire Sprinkler Limits Damage in Tigard Apartment (Photo)

FIRE SPRINKLER LIMITS DAMAGE IN TIGARD APARTMENT (PHOTO)


News Release from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue
Posted on FlashAlert: August 31st, 2015 2:48 PM
Downloadable file: FullSizeRender-2.jpg
On Friday evening at 7:38 p.m., firefighters responded to an automatic commercial fire alarm at the Summer Creek Apartments in Tigard. First-arriving firefighters found that a single fire sprinkler head had activated and extinguished a small fire caused by a candle on the floor. In the absence of the fire sprinkler, firefighters would have had to use a lot more water to fight the fire and the amount of smoke would have put the tenant and their neighbors at risk. Instead, fire damage was isolated to the area of origin and the single occupant and his dog were evacuated and assisted by Red Cross.

Fire Investigator Drew DeBois said states, "Without activation of the sprinkler head and a properly maintained fire sprinkler system, there could have been a tragic outcome. When a building has a fire sprinkler system - residential or commercial - the likelihood of life-threatening injuries and costly damage is dramatically reduced."

A fire investigator determined the area of origin of the fire was the exterior patio courtyar d area along the east side of the building. The exact cause of the fire was not determined, however credible ignition sources found in the vicinity included a charcoal BBQ, propane BBQ, propane crab pot-turkey fryer, as well as a known smoker in one of the units that adjoined our area of interest.

The fire climbed the exterior wall fracturing multiple windows, which in turn provided for interior fire spread. In addition, flames extended to the attic space early during the event through the attic vents along the roof eaves resulting in approximately 70% of the roof being consumed in the fire. Damage is extensive throughout and the building appears to be a total loss.

___________________________

At 1:02am TVF&R Firefighters were dispatched to a report of a fire in Beaverton on SW 125th off of SW Hall Blvd. On arrival crews found heavy fire coming from several units of the apartment building and immediately called for a 2nd alarm to bring additional resources to the scene. Firefighters pulled water lines to all corners of the structure and attacked the fire from the exterior. Due to sheer amount of fire, crews continued a defensive attack until the bulk of the flames were extinguished. A search of the structure by firefighters found no one inside.

The apartments were not equipped with residential sprinklers, which were not required at the time the structure was built. A fire investigator is on scene to determine fire cause and origin.

Approximately 10 people were displaced by the fire and being assisted by Red Cross.

Cowlitz Sheriff investigating report of a picketer being struck at the Kaptsone strike site.

COWLITZ SHERIFF INVESTIGATING REPORT OF A PICKETER BEING STRUCK AT THE KAPTSONE STRIKE SITE.


News Release from Cowlitz Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted on FlashAlert: August 31st, 2015 2:26 PM
On 8-30-15 at about 7:00 p.m. The Cowlitz Sheriff's Office is investigating an incident where a man who was picketing at the Kapstone Plant reported he was struck by a vehicle leaving the plant site. Deputies have interviewed several people including the driver of the vehicle and the man who was reportedly struck.

Members of the AWPPW union and the Kaptstone company video took video of the incident. Kapstone has released a copy of their video to the Sheriff's Office. The AWPPW is holding off on releasing their video's until they have been cleared by their attorney.

The driver said that pickets stood in front of his truck and started hitting his truck with their picket signs as he tried to leave the plant site and he was in fear of being harmed so he left the area and then called 911 to report the event.

The Driver is: Derek L Knight, 35 yrs of Coy Alabama.

The Picketer is: Steve W Blanchard, 36yrs, of St. Helen's Oregon.

Mr. Blanchard said that while he was walking the picket line, the truck bumped him and then accelerated. He said that he was right in front of the truck and he was "thrown" across the road. He was taken to St. John Hospital but was reportedly released without treatment.

The investigation is continuing. If anyone has any information, or video, or pictures the Sheriff's Office is asking that you bring them to the office. You can also email them to sheriff@co.cowlitz.wa.us but the person who send's anything my email must provide your contact information for us to follow up with you in order for us to be able to use the information provided.

The Sheriff's Office will not be releasing any video, or pictures since it is an active investigation. We will not be commenting on the nature of injuries of Mr. Blanchard's injuries. If there are medical reports, we will review them when they are available.


Sheriff Nelson and CCD Rosenzweig met with leadership members of AWPPW and Kapstone this morning and stressed the importance of safety. The greatest risk of injury is when people walk or stand in front of moving vehicles; this is particularly hazardous when done where no crosswalks exists such as at the Kapstone site.

We will send out a updated media release when the investigation is concluded.

News Release from Yamhill Co. Sheriff's Office

Downloadable file: Oster
Downloadable file: Richter
On August 18th, Yamhill County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a trespass in progress in the 24000 block of Mt. Richmond Road in rural Yamhill. A property owner had discovered someone on the premises and called for assistance. Deputies arrived and detained Andrew Ryan Richter, 25, of South Road in rural Yamhill. An additional subject was located on the property, hiding under a motor home. He was identified as Richard Wayne Oster, 24, of May Yocum Road in rural Sheridan.

A theft of an ATV had occurred on the adjacent property the day prior. Follow up investigation led deputies to connect that theft to the same two suspects, as well as an additional ATV theft that had occurred on Turner Creek Road that same day. Both ATV's were recovered by YCSO deputies.

Suspecting the two subjects may be involved in additional ATV thefts, deputies went to Oster's address on May Yocum Road. They located and recovered a stolen ATV at that location that was connected to an August 12th theft that occurred on Deer Creek Flats Road in rural McMinnville. Parts had been removed from that ATV, and it had been repainted in an effort to conceal it.

Both Richter and Oster have been lodged in the Yamhill County Jail on the following charges:

Theft I
Theft III
Burglary II
Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle (two counts)

Richter and Oster currently have a bail set at $37,500. Additional charges are expected in the investigation. Richter is also being held on a Washington County hold that is unrelated to the thefts.

Sheriff Svenson praised the awareness of the resident and his quick request for law enforcement. "Taking ownership in your neighborhood is so important nowadays. Thanks to the awareness of this particular caller, deputies were able to make arrests that affected many more people. I'm proud that our folks took the initiative to follow up and connect these suspects to additional cases. Based on this we were able to recover these vehicles and get them returned to their proper owners."

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact Sgt. Brian Young at 503-434-7506 or youngb@co.yamhill.or.us

DEPUTY INJURED DURING TRAFFIC CRASH IN DAMASCUS (PHOTO)

Downloadable file: Damascus Crash
On August 30, 2015 at about 6:50 AM, a Deputy Sheriff with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) was involved in an on-duty traffic crash on SE Hwy 212 near SE Rust Way in Damascus.

The preliminary investigation revealed an 18-year-old man, who drove a Subaru sedan, traveled on Hwy 212 on his way home after staying awake most of the night. The Subaru driver veered out of his lane and collided with a CCSO patrol car near the front driver side wheel as it traveled in the opposite direction.

The CCSO Deputy, Garrett Grimm, was transported to a local hospital where he was diagnosed with a hairline fracture to his left fibula and facial lacerations likely from glass broken during the crash. Deputy Grimm has since been released from the hospital and is recovering at home. Deputy Grimm has worked for the CCSO as a Deputy assigned to the Patrol Division since September 2014.

The Subaru driver was also transported to a local hospital as a precaution, but he did not have any apparent injuries.

The crash was witnessed by two other Deputies who traveled a short distance behind Deputy Grimm and they rendered care to both drivers until medical personnel arrived.

The investigation revealed the Subaru driver was not impaired, but his fatigued driving likely caused him to leave his lane of travel and crash into the CCSO patrol car. The Oregon State Police responded to investigate the crash and were assisted on scene by CCSO Deputies assigned to the Criminal Reconstruction and Forensic Team (CRAFT).

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office would like to remind everyone of the dangers of fatigued or drowsy driving as it has been shown to mimic the effects of impaired driving. More information on fatigued or drowsy driving can be found at www.nhtsa.gov.

At 1:02am TVF&R Firefighters were dispatched to a report of a fire in Beaverton on SW 125th off of SW Hall Blvd. On arrival crews found heavy fire coming from several units of the apartment building and immediately called for a 2nd alarm to bring additional resources to the scene. Firefighters pulled water lines to all corners of the structure and attacked the fire from the exterior. Due to sheer amount of fire, crews continued a defensive attack until the bulk of the flames were extinguished. A search of the structure by firefighters found no one inside.

The apartments were not equipped with residential sprinklers, which were not required at the time the structure was built. A fire investigator is on scene to determine fire cause and origin.

Approximately 10 people were displaced by the fire and being assisted by Red Cross.

(Photo and Video) Oregon Army National Guard units complete battle simulations at U.S. Army National Training Center

(PHOTO AND VIDEO) OREGON ARMY NATIONAL GUARD UNITS COMPLETE BATTLE SIMULATIONS AT U.S. ARMY NATIONAL TRAINING CENTER


News Release from Oregon Military Department
Posted on FlashAlert: August 28th, 2015 8:40 PM
More than 500 Soldiers of the Oregon Army National Guard's 3rd Battalion, 116th Calvary Regiment (3-116th Combined Arms), and the 1186th Military Police Company (1186th MP), spent 12 days conducting live-fire exercises and large-scale simulated battle scenarios at the National Training Center (NTC), in the Mojave Desert at Fort Irwin, Calif., August 14-25, 2015.

The Oregon units augmented the Idaho Army National Guard's 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team (CBCT) during the first Decisive Action operation, known as "force-on-force," integrated combat and maneuver training cycle the Army National Guard has completed since the beginning of the Global War on Terror. More than 5,200 Service Members from 10 states' National Guard units, as well as U.S. Army Reserve and active duty U.S. Army components, participated in the training.

"The purpose of this NTC rotation is to allow the brigade to advance its collective training skillsets and our proficiencies as a brigade combat team," said Idaho Army National Guard Col. Russell Johnson, commander of the 116th CBCT. "We rarely, if ever, get the opportunity to take all 4,000-plus Soldiers out and train together at one time. The National Training Center is one of those rare resources in today's Army that allows us the opportunity to do that."

The training was designed to simulate an expeditionary deployment experience and increase war-fighting capabilities. The 116th CBCT used Abrams tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles, and Apache helicopters provided by the Idaho Army National Guard's 1st Battalion, 183rd Attack Reconnaissance (1-183rd ARB), to conduct simulated battles against the U.S. Army's 2nd Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment (ACR).

The Director of the Army National Guard, Lt. Gen. Timothy Kadavy, said that NTC training ensures combat units in the National Guard achieve the readiness levels required by the Army in order to meet the nation's demands.

"The National Guard is part of the total Army force and we have combat formations within our team ... so it's important that we give these organizations the opportunity to come out and go against world-class OPFOR [opposing forces] to grow and train," said Kadavy.

Oregon's 3-116th Battalion successfully conducted three running battles and retained the ability to continue projecting effective combat power during the training. The battalion defeated more than double its weight in opposing force combat troops, armor and equipment.

"It was an extremely challenging environment and a very difficult standard and the Soldiers did exceptionally well," said Oregon Army National Guard Lt. Col. Brian Dean, commander of the 3-116th Battalion.

The 3-116th Battalion consists of Citizen-Soldiers from seven Eastern Oregon cities and was the first National Guard battalion in the nation certified on the new M2A3 Bradley Fighting Vehicle (BFV) and the Abrams M1A2 SEPv2 main battle tank. The battalion spent four years training on the new equipment and preparing for NTC.

"This marks the end of a lot of sacrifice for Soldiers, families and employers," said Dean. "I want to thank the families. I understand that it is sacrifice for them. And to the employers, without them being willing to give up their hard working Soldiers, we wouldn't be able to do this."

The 1186th MP Company is based in Salem, Oregon, with a detachment in Milton-Freewater. The military police Soldiers contributed to the training as a combat service and support unit.

"The troops have been great. It's been absolutely fantastic. High morale under very austere conditions and they've risen to every challenge and I'm fantastically proud of each and every one of them," said Oregon Army National Guard Master Sgt. James Webb, with the 1186 MP Company, 821st Troop Command Battalion.

Coffee Creek Correctional Facility women complete career program (Photo)

COFFEE CREEK CORRECTIONAL FACILITY WOMEN COMPLETE CAREER PROGRAM (PHOTO)


News Release from Oregon Dept. of Corrections
Posted on FlashAlert: August 28th, 2015 4:21 PM
Downloadable file: Career and Technology Training Graduates
Thirteen women in custody at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF) celebrated the completion of a 15-month Career and Technology Training program on August 20.

The program - offered through Portland Community College - helps women in custody develop computer skills including keyboarding and proficiency in several Microsoft programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access). The 13 graduates earned their Microsoft Office Specialist certifications. In addition, they studied "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey to develop better work habits and decision-making skills.

The course offered the women hands-on experience with a variety of tasks to boost employability and work skills training, for example working in Prison Bytes, an institution stationery business. Coaching was provided in preparing cover letters and resumes, interviewing, career exploration, and planning.

Previous graduates who have released from prison credited the course as key in staying focused and setting goals.

The family of a Rock Creek man called the Sheriff's Office regarding a missing family member. Russell Smeed, age 50 has been missing since earlier this month. The family reported that they found a note left by Mr. Smeed that contained self-harm statements. After attempts by the family to locate Mr. Smeed were unsuccessful, they contacted the Sheriff's Office for help.

Deputies have followed known leads and have not been able to locate Mr. Smeed and are concerned for his safety. The Sheriff's Office is now seeking the public's help in an effort to locate Mr. Smeed.

Mr. Smeed Left on foot with a grey toy poodle and was last seen wearing a baseball cap, bright tank top, dark grey shorts, brown leather boots and was carrying a small black backpack.

internally audited fund balances so the city had a true picture of city finances.
?,? Through her stewardship, the city received a clean audit, financial statements were
prepared and presented in a timely manner, and a simplified balanced budget was
approved by the budget committee and adopted by the council.
?,? The city through her guidance was successful in refunding bonds, which provided a
considerable amount of savings (over $800,000) for the city's taxpayers.

Downloadable file: Crash Photo
August 28, 2015--Sheriff's Deputies responded to a report of a motorcycle rider that was missing. The rider was later located deceased over an embankment.

On August 27, 2015, at 10:22 a.m., Washington County Sheriff's Deputies were called to the area of NW Highway 26 in the community of Timber. It was reported a group of 10 motorcycles had been riding in the area the previous night. The group reportedly had a final stop in Vernonia then departed in different directions. A family member reported that Vadim Danilin, 24, from Portland did not return home and no one has seen or heard from him since they left Vernonia.

Sheriff's Deputies began an extensive search of the roadways in the remote area. With a large area to search, Sheriff's Deputies searched for any signs of a crash or where Mr. Danilin's 2005 Suzuki GSXR600 motorcycle may have left the roadway.

On August 27, 2015, at 7:43 p.m., Sheriff's Deputies were notified by a searcher that they found signs where a motorcycle left the roadway at the 26000 block of NW Timber Road. Vadim Danilin was located deceased near his motorcycle, about 40 yards over an embankment after failing to negotiate a curve and striking a tree.

It appears that excessive speed may have been a contributing factor in this crash.
The Washington County Crash Analysis Reconstruction Team assisted with this investigation.

BEAVERTON, Ore. - The City of Beaverton has applied for a $10 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant for the Canyon Road (OR 8) Safety and Complete Corridor Project. On Tuesday, Sept. 1 Mayor Doyle will lead a tour of Canyon Road for Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici.


"The Canyon Road project is key to revitalizing downtown Beaverton," said Mayor Denny Doyle. "Our community vision calls for safer streets for pedestrians and bicyclists, easier ways to get to and from transit centers, and development in our downtown--this project touches on all of those aspects."


The Canyon Road project will:


* Increase safety for all mode types and users through sidewalk repair and enhancements, safer pedestrian crossings, correction of auto and freight turning conflicts, and traffic calming


* Provide better connectivity across Canyon Road for bicyclists and pedestrians seeking access to transit or a safe route to work


* Facilitate economic development and reinvestment with increased transportation choices and greater access to transit and job centers


The project started from the community's vision of downtown Beaverton as a connected, vibrant place, with particular emphasis on improving the safety, congestion and environment on Canyon and Farmington Roads. Oregon Highway 8 is a critical part of the local regional and service sector jobs in Beaverton, Hillsboro and Portland. The highway is adjacent to light rail.


The estimated total cost of the project is $20.8 million. The project is supported by the city's and ODOT's non-federal match totaling $5.8 million and an additional $1.5 million from the Washington County MSTIP Opportunity Fund. Pre-engineering and design of the project was funded through a $1 million HUD Sustainable Communities Challenge Grant. The project is also supported by $3.5 million in Regional Flex Fund dollars, awarded by Metro in 2013.


"Now is the time to make these much needed improvements," said Mayor Doyle. "We've gathered nearly 70 letters of support from local businesses. We're ready for TIGER and we're ready to move forward with this important project."


For more information, please contact Todd Juhasz, transportation planner at tjuhasz@BeavertonOregon.gov or at 503-526-2424.
