UPDATE: 7-31-16 5:15PM

At about 3:22PM on 7-31-16, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office received a call from a male, who stated he was hearing another male yelling for help in the 15000 block of SE 82nd Dr. in Clackamas. The caller investigated the calls for help, and tracked the yelling to a patch of blackberry bushes. Although the caller could not see the male calling for help, he began speaking with him before calling 911.

Deputies responded to the scene, where the caller led them to the stuck individual. It was at this time that the responding deputies identified the stuck man as the missing subject, Terry Brenneke. The blackberry bushes were on a steep incline and were extremely thick, thus not allowing deputies to reach Mr. Brenneke. Deputies continued to speak with Mr. Brenneke until a crew from the Clackamas Fire District arrived on scene. Firefighters proceeded to cut a large hole in a chain-link fence, and used tools to cut through approximately ten feet of thick blackberry bushes.

Fire and medical personnel were able to remove Mr. Brenneke from the blackberries and began to render medical aid. Although being tired and thirsty, Mr. Brenneke appears to only have suffered minor cuts and bruises. Mr. Brenneke was transported to a local hospital as a precautionary measure.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office would like to thank the following crews for their help with locating Mr. Brenneke: Clackamas Fire District #1, American Medical Response, Pacific Northwest SAR, Mountain Wave SAR, Nor SAR K-9, the Washington County Sheriff's Office, and the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office. Additionally, CCSO would like to thank the good samaritan who called 911 and alerted first responders to Mr. Brenneke's whereabouts.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office reminds citizens to please call whenever they notice something out of the ordinary; it might just save a life.

-If the media would like to contact the gentleman who located Mr. Brenneke, they can contact the CCSO PIO email for further information-


-EARLIER RELEASE-

Clackamas County Sheriff's office is seeking the publics help in locating Terry Brenneke who is 67 year old white male, 5'11 tall, 145LBS. He has brown eyes and gray medium length hair.

News Release from Portland Police Bureau
Posted on FlashAlert: July 31st, 2016 12:26 PM
Downloadable file: Renne_Leonard_Carter_47.jpg
On Saturday July 30, 2016, at 4:16 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to the report of a man and woman fighting in the area of Southeast 174th Avenue and Powell Boulevard.

Officers arrived in the area and contacted the female, who was a victim of domestic violence. While officers were investigating the incident, the male suspect started to flee the scene in his vehicle and struck the rear bumper of a parked Police Canine Unit as he left the scene. The suspect was captured as he pulled up to his residence in the 6700 block of Southeast 70th Avenue.

The suspect, 47-year-old Renne Leonard Carter, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Assault in the Fourth Degree (Domestic Violence), Failure to Perform the Duties of a Driver (Hit and Run), Reckless Driving, and Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants.

The police dog that was inside the Canine Unit vehicle at the time of the crash was not injured.

Domestic violence is among the most frequent and serious forms of violent crime investigated by police. If you or a loved one are experiencing domestic violence or are concerned that domestic violence may be an issue, help is available.

Call to Safety (formerly the Portland Women's Crisis Line) provides access to advocacy services, including confidential peer support, information, and referrals to community resources. 24 hour crisis line: 503-235-5333, 1-888-235-5333, or https://calltosafety.org/

Additional, web-based resources are available from Multnomah County's Domestic Violence Coordinator's office: http://web.multco.us/dv

The Portland Police Bureau's Domestic Violence Reduction Unit (DVRU) provides officers and detectives with specialized training in the dynamics of domestic violence. This unit also operates jointly with Multnomah County's Domestic Violence Enhanced Response Team (DVERT) on "high-lethality" cases of domestic violence (those cases with warning signs associated with the most severe and life-threatening cases of domestic violence).

Information on DVRU is available at: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/35679

Finally, the City of Portland, Multnomah County and numerous other partners have joined together to create The Gateway Center. The Gateway Center attempts to limit the impact of intimate partner violence through by providing multi-cultural and survivor-centered advocacy and services. Given the complexity of domestic violence, this center provides a single-point of access to services and resources for survivors of intimate partner violence.

Information on The Gateway Center can be found at http://www.portlandoregon.gov/gatewaycenter/52837

Visit TVF&R's Facebook page for more photos and video of this morning's fire.

A family-run business that has been a fixture in Tualatin for more than fifty years has been destroyed by fire. Just after 2:30 a.m. this morning, firefighters responded to reports of smoke and flames at Clark Lumber and True Value Hardware at 8460 SW Nyberg Street. Despite arriving in less than four minutes of being dispatched, firefighters had to fight the fire from the outside due to the heat, intensity and fuel load in the steel frame and concrete building. Based on the construction and metal roof, the building was like an oven as tools, lumber, paints and other contents burned inside.

Crews worked to surround the building to protect neighboring structures and applied water from the ground and elevated truck streams. Bystanders could hear the sound of exploding propane tanks and other pressurized items and smoke billowed from the site for several hours.

The building, which did not have a fire sprinkler system, was not occupied at the time of the fire. It also didn't have a fire alarm system, though owners were notified when multiple security alarms activated. When a fire sprinkler system is present, the likelihood of injuries and costly damage is dramatically reduced. More information about fire sprinkler systems can be found at: http://www.tvfr.com/index.aspx?nid=144

A team of fire investigators will be working to determine where and how the fire started. "Our hearts go out to the Clark family for their significant loss," states Cassandra Ulven with Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue.

PF&R RESPONDS TO STRUCTURE FIRE IN NE


News Release from Portland Fire & Rescue
Posted on FlashAlert: July 31st, 2016 12:42 AM
PF&R crews responded to an initial report of a grass fire near NE 8th and NE Fremont Ave just before midnight. Engine 14(Alberta Park) arrived to find a tree on fire with a downed power line. It was found that fire had impinged on the adjacent commercial structures(707 NE Fremont) gas meter which caused the meter to rupture and the leaking gas to ignite. Fortunately the building at this location is cinder-block construction and was able to hold up under the hot conditions until crews could get the gas shut off and the remaining fire extinguished.

A thorough inspection of 707 NE Fremont's roof and the closely situated neighboring yards was made to ensure that no embers from the original tree fire had caused a secondary fire. No other fires were found in this tightly situated area with both commercial and residential structures.

No injuries were reported with this fire. A fire investigator is on scene working to determine the cause.

PF&R Responds to Multiple Residential Fires in NE

PF&R RESPONDS TO MULTIPLE RESIDENTIAL FIRES IN NE


News Release from Portland Fire & Rescue
Posted on FlashAlert: July 30th, 2016 11:00 PM
At 9:52 p.m. PF&R crews responded to a house fire at the 1800 block of NE 106th after occupants reported a fire on the stove had spread to the kitchen walls. Upon arrival station 7(Mill Park) confirmed that all occupants were out and safe. After a quick knock down of the fire in the kitchen, crews found fire had spread into the attic. That extension was quickly extinguished.

As the fire at NE 106th was wrapping up, additional PF&R crews were dispatched to the 3900 block of NE 78th at 10:12 p.m.. Engine 28(Rose City/Hollywood) arrived at the apartment complex to find flames showing from a second story apartment window. It was again confirmed that all occupants had made it out safely. Water was first sprayed through the window from the exterior. This helped cool the fire which allowed crews to transition to an interior attack. This fire was also rapidly extinguished.

While damages were kept to a minimum in both fires the occupants at the 106th fire will be displaced. Red Cross is assisting that family with finding alternate shelter.

In both situations the occupants made the right decision. They recognized that the fire had grown beyond what they could safely handle on their own. The chose to Get Out and Stay Out. No injuries were reported with either fire.

News Release from Oregon State Police

Downloadable file: FORESTER.jpg
On July 27, 2016 at about 6:30AM, OSP Troopers and emergency personnel responded to the report of a single vehicle crash on Highway 199 near milepost 30 (near Cave Junction). A nearby resident told trooper he had heard what he thought was a vehicle crash around 1:45AM.

Initial investigation revealed the driver William A ROBERTS, age 39, of Cave Junction, had drifted off the roadway and struck a tree. It was later discovered ROBERTS had suffered a gunshot wound to the back of the head. It was also discovered his wallet, cell phone and a handgun were missing from the vehicle.

An extensive investigation began which led to identifying two suspects as Renee Lee EDRINGTON, age 39 and Kyle James FORESTER, age 29 (both of Cave Junction). Information was developed they both resided on a large piece of property located at 22503 Redwood Highway in Cave Junction.

On July 30, 2016 at about 4:45AM, OSP Detectives and the Oregon State Police SWAT Team served a search warrant on the residence. Upon arrival, EDRINGTON was outside the residence and was armed with a handgun. EDRINGTON failed to comply with commands of the troopers while remaining armed with the handgun and advancing on them. Troopers deployed less lethal impact rounds which subsequently subdued EDRINGTON. FORESTER exited the residence and was taken into custody without incident.

It is believed by investigators that FORESTER and EDRINGTON were in some sort of confrontation with ROBERTS in the early hours of July 27th. At some point FORESTER and EDRINGTON were in a separate vehicle following ROBERTS when they shot at him, fatally striking him in the back of the head leading to the vehicle crash. Investigators believe FORESTER and EDRINGTON returned to the crash scene and took items from ROBERTS' vehicle.

Both FORESTER and EDRINGTON were lodged at the Josephine County Jail for Murder, Robbery and Theft.

OSP has been assisted by the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety during this investigation. More information will be released when appropriate.

Just one day after TVF&R implemented a burn ban in its large service area which includes portions of four counties, a brush and grass fire near the intersection of 209th Avenue and Farmington Road in Aloha threatened a home and burned two acres.

Just after 2p.m., initial callers reported flames 30-40 feet high burning brush and grass. Firefighters from TVF&R and Hillsboro Fire Department worked to access the head of the fire, establish a wet line around the perimeter and take a defensive position to ensure that a nearby home was protected.

Within 15 minutes, firefighters extinguished the bulk of fire and spent another two hours mopping up. They used four-wheel-drive vehicles called "brush rigs" to access off-road areas and the fire commander recalled the second alarm within 20 minutes.

Though the cause of the fire remains under investigation, today's fire serves as a reminder of how recent hot weather has created dry conditions that increase the potential of fire from discarded cigarettes and other ignition sources.

Firefighters Spend night with stranded rafters

FIREFIGHTERS SPEND NIGHT WITH STRANDED RAFTERS


News Release from Clackamas Fire Dist. #1
Posted on FlashAlert: July 30th, 2016 11:56 AM
On July 29, 2016 at about 8:30pm, Clackamas County's water rescue teams responded to the Sandy river to a family whose raft was stuck on the rocks. One of the victims had a potential diabetic issue. When fire crews arrived, they realized the only access to the victims was to hike down a long trail. As they were working to get down to the victims, Life Flight helicopter flew over and located the victims. Life Flight was activated because of the remote area and due to the report of a diabetic issue. Life Flight was able to land on a sand bar located near the victims and provided them with blankets and reassurance the rescuers were on their way. When the firefighters arrived, they were able to free the raft from the rocks. The six family members along with the two firefighters floated down to the next trail head. Four of the six people stranded were able to hike out, the remaining two were elderly and were unable to make the hike out to the r oad. Due to it being dark and late, rescuers decided to stay with the elderly couple on the river overnight and make the journey to safely to Oxbow Park the next morning. Rescuers and the couple reached the park this morning at approximately 9:15am. Everyone was fine, just a little cold and tired. CCSO deputy transported the elderly couple to their vehicle so they could come back and retrieve their raft. When planning a rafting trip on any river, be sure to always wear a life jacket and allow yourself plenty of time to get back safely in case any emergencies occur.

(Hillsboro, Oregon) A one-alarm fire caused more than 20-thousand dollars in damages to a Hillsboro home early Friday evening. Dispatchers were alerted by neighbors and the Hillsboro airport control tower of a fire in northeast Hillsboro. When firefighters from the Jones Farm fire station arrived in the 900-block of Josephine Street shortly after 8:30, they found heavy fire on the west side of a one-story, wood framed home. The fire was racing down a fence line and extending into the trees as well as extending into the attic of the home. Firefighters quickly attacked the blaze and brought it under control in about ten minutes. There were no injuries.

Fire investigators says the blaze started in a camper trailer parked next to the home. The flames destroyed the camper, about 30 feet of fence line and damaged the homes siding, attic and roof. The interior of the home received only light water damage from firefighting efforts.

The homeowners were not at home; however, the owner said his adult son was there and heard popping noises and some neighbors yelling that his house was on fire. Both the son and the neighbors attempted to fight the fire with garden hoses before firefighters arrived.

The homeowners and son will be staying in their undamaged motorhome until repairs are made to their residence.

Summer Art Displays in Beaverton Feature Photography, Acrylic and Watercolor Paintings (Photo)

SUMMER ART DISPLAYS IN BEAVERTON FEATURE PHOTOGRAPHY, ACRYLIC AND WATERCOLOR PAINTINGS (PHOTO)


News Release from City of Beaverton
Posted on FlashAlert: July 29th, 2016 3:21 PM
Downloadable file: "Off to Work" by Kate Ampersand. Ampersand is one of the artists featured in the city's revolving art displays around Beaverton through Aug. This work and many others can be viewed at The Beaverton Building during office hours. Works are also displayed at
BEAVERTON, Ore. --The City of Beaverton's arts program is showcasing works this July and Aug. at several locations, including The Beaverton Building, Beaverton City Library main location, Murray Scholls branch library, Providence St. Vincent Hospital, Cedar Hills Recreation Center, Progress Ridge New Seasons, Bogza Coffee, and the Artisan Salon. All artwork included is for sale.


THE BEAVERTON BUILDING
The Beaverton Building (12725 SW Millikan Way) features works by several artists. Members of the public can view works during office hours, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Featured artists:


First Floor and Council Chambers: Mandeep Bawa
Ram Singh Bawa lives for, through and because of his passion for art. Although he has been formally displaying his paintings for fifty years in India and the U.S., it seems that this surge of imagination and an unceasing yearning for expression have blossomed in him for several lifetimes. Not a day passes by without his brush manifesting on canvas the creative outpouring of his soul's experience. To him, living up to this expectation of the spirit means more than the several awards and honors he has been bestowed with. In this show at the Beaverton City Hall, his works revolve around the depth and sensitivity of the human soul. His paintings in acrylic exude a human being's desire for inspiration and quest for spiritual meaning.


Fourth Floor: Kate Ampersand
Photographer Kate Ampersand creates images with a unique perspective, documenting her travels throughout the Pacific Northwest by recording the hidden details in the commonplace -- details that most of us don't have time to notice. She appreciates how the art of photography allows her to slow down and really see the world around us. A long-time resident of Washington County, Kate has earned multiple awards for her photography. Her work is also held in private collections in Canada and the United States, and has been featured in juried exhibitions throughout Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. She is active in several photography and camera clubs. For more information, visit www.AmpersandPlanet.com.


Fifth Floor: Robert Graves
After more than 40 years as a commercial photographer, Robert Graves has had the opportunity to see and shoot in a great variety of work environments. It was his job to go into those places, often times quite mundane, and come away with graphic, compelling images. He loved the challenge of making "visual lemon juice out of lemons." During that time he developed a style of photographing golf courses in a more artistic style -- a "painterly" look. And along the way he applied that style to a variety of landscapes from his travels. For more information, visit www.robertgravesphoto.com.


BEAVERTON CITY LIBRARY MAIN AND MURRAY SCHOLLS
The Beaverton City Main Library (12375 SW 5th St) and the Beaverton City Branch Library (11200 SW Murray Scholls Pl) feature works by several artists. Members of the public can view works during library operating hours. All artwork included in this show is for sale.


Main library featured artists:
Monday to Thursday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.


John Mohney
John Mohney likes to use Northwest landscapes, seascapes and urban scenes as motifs to paint fun and entertaining paintings. Mohney enjoys painting with watercolor and is comfortable with the way it reacts on paper, noting that you can do things with it that you cannot do with other mediums. He believes artists are always changing as they experiment, learn and grow. When finding references, Mohney has a sketchbook or camera at hand to record places, scenes and people. His final pictures may come from several sketches and photo references, not necessarily from the same place. Thus, a painting may depict a northwest scene but not of a particular place.


Judy Mohney
Judy Mohney graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science, majoring and minoring in Art and Art History. She had experience in all art mediums including jewelry, sculpting and metal working but never zeroed in one particular area except Graphic Design. Graphic Design was restrictive and too tight for Mohney. After retiring, she fell in love with watercolor, pen and ink, and graphite watercolor. Mohney enjoys painting people/figures, statues which touch her heart and being loose when painting flowers. She spends hours at cemeteries looking for statues that touch her soul or make her wonder about the deceased person. In her mind, she is on a journey and feels that she is never finished or satisfied -- a learning experience where she learns something about herself and/or the reference subject.


Kathryn Delaney
Kathryn Delaney's art career started as soon as she could wield a pencil and she has never looked back. After university, she landed in the graphic department for an insurance company, where she developed an original art series of the Birds of Prey of Africa and Wild Animals of Africa for their corporate collection. She moved to the United States in the mid 80's, but by the early 90's she found herself in Holland, and spent three years in Amsterdam. Through her years, she has been in juried shows, won numerous awards, and has sold over 200 pieces of art. Delaney has been able to take 35 years of fine art experience and meld it with my strong technical knowledge to create unique and new art that can be applied to fine art, design, fabrics or wearable art. This new art medium allows her to incorporate my intense art training and experience to create extraordinary, vibrant and complex art, in a more dynamic manner than can be done traditionally. For more information, visit http://colorsplashes.com.


Lois Marchington
Lois Marchington was born into a family of artists, and has been creating art using watercolor for over 30 years. Marchington thoroughly enjoys the wonders and magic of watercolor medium. Residing in Portland, she plans to keep watercolor an integral part of her life. She learned composition and the importance of light while working side-by-side with them. Today she continues to develop her knowledge of art by attending numerous workshops and art classes. Her goals are to blend color and reflective light to capture images, and her paintings range from soft serene landscapes to brilliant color scenes.


Phyllis Meyer
Although her formal education was not in art, Phyllis Meyer's lifelong interest in art and art history pushed her to begin her art career in 1994 after retiring from the California State University's Chancellor's Office. Meyer's work ranges from impressionistic to abstract, with an emphasis on intense color, abstract shapes, and the use of calligraphic line. For a number of years, she has enjoyed painting crows -- appreciating their attitude, curiosity and intelligence. Some in this series have been avatars of human sins ("Temptation", "Avarice", and "Gluttony"). More recently Meyer has been inspired by the beauty and mystery of cave pearls which are mineral formations (oolites) found in various sizes and colors all over the world. Her hope is that viewers will find her work emotionally stimulating. For more information, visit www.artistliszt.com/phyllismeyer.


Sunny Smith
Sunny Smith holds a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Oregon and Oregon College of Education and spent 16 years as an elementary teacher and 11 years as a remedial reading specialist. Through the inspiration of art, music, movement, her surroundings, the human condition and other creative souls, Smith is compelled to paint. Weaving shape, color and texture around and through her subject matter, she often tells a story while following her compositional instincts and goals. Her series is comprised of a variety of mostly acrylic paintings with some degree of abstraction -- including figurative, landscape, and non-objective works. For more information, visit www.sunnypaintstudio.com.


Murray Scholls featured artists:
Monday to Wednesday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Thursday to Sunday noon to 6 p.m.


Anne Price Yates
Plein air painting in Provence in 2000 and 2001 influenced Anne Price Yates' impressionist style, evident in her French landscapes. In the fall of 2001, the four French-Impressionist-style paintings she entered in the professional division of the Desert Empire Fair's art competition in Ridgecrest, California, took first, second, and third place as well as honorable mention. Her work has been exhibited and sold in California, New York City, and Oregon. Yates' fascination with art began as soon as she could hold a pencil. While enrolled in the Carnegie Museum of Art's special Saturday program for young artists in Pittsburgh, she began experimenting with oil, acrylic, and casein paints. At age14, she was among the youngest of 16 students who were tapped to research, design, and paint four large murals for a major exhibition of Medieval and Renaissance Arms and Armor at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh. She majored in art at Florida State University, and continued to study figure painting and portraiture in San Francisco and the Seattle area. Today she continues to paint with oil, acrylic, and watercolor. Although Reflections of a Fall 2010 barge cruise in France can be observed in some of her current oil paintings, she continues to paint Oregon landscapes.


Lana L. Nelson
Lana L. Nelson has always had an interest in creating. Early on it was expressed through music, dance, costume design, and crafts while earning a degree in Parks and Recreation Administration; then planning and managing customer service, customer information and graphic way finding for public transportation for 30 years. But nothing has called to her more than wanting to paint with oil. After a long and rewarding career, she decided her next chapter in life should finally include oil painting. Nelson continues to participate in a variety of workshops, critiques and shows and is delighted that her eyes have learned to see more keenly the beauty of nature and the world around us. The abundance of possibilities for capturing a feeling or a concept onto a canvas excites her every day. For her, there is both anxiety and thrill in facing an empty white canvas and building step by step an image that brings pleasure and joy. There is nothing to compare with someone liking a pain ting enough to take it home with them. For more information, visit www.LanaLNelson.com.


Laura Hopper
During her career as a teacher, Laura Hopper included lots of relevant art activities in everything she taught, from kindergarten to junior high computer classes. Since retirement, she has enjoyed the freedom to paint often and has shared her creative spirit and love of watercolor with all ages through numerous classes and friendly gatherings around her dining room table. For many years she set up and sold at outdoor markets in Florida, Hillsboro, Orenco, and Portland's Pearl District. Though she enjoys painting a wide variety of subjects, at times she was known for her giraffe and turtle paintings. She is an active member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon, the Village Gallery of Arts in Cedar Mill, and Valley Art in Forest Grove. When time allows, Laura still does a few art shows and teaches an occasional watercolor class. For more information, visit www.villagegalleryarts.org/laura-hopper.
