>>Man Gets Six-year Sentence For Fred Meyer Shooting

(Portland, OR)  --  A man who shot and wounded a fellow shopper at a Clackamas Fred Meyer store is slated to spend six years behind bars.  Sixty-six-year-old Jerry Harryman of Milwaukie was convicted earlier this month on charges of assault and unlawful use of a weapon in the shooting of 59-year-old Bill Young.  Young was shot in the knee in August 2012 during an argument in the check-out line between the two men, and has since recovered.  A judge sentenced Harryman to 70 months in jail.   

>>Dogs Removed From Columbia County Puppy Mill

(Columbia County, OR)  --  A Columbia County woman could be facing felony charges after being accused of operating a puppy mill under squalid conditions.  Oregon Humane Society personnel removed 100 dogs yesterday from the facility, which has been under investigation amid allegations of animal neglect.  Humane Society director Sharon Harmon told KATU-TV the animals were living in "deplorable conditions."  The dogs are being held as evidence for a potential legal case and will not be immediately available for adoption.

>>Police Believe DA's Office Explosion 'Domestic Terrorism'

(Medford, OR)  --  Medford police believe an explosion at the Jackson County District Attorney's office was a case of domestic terrorism.  Authorities say a propane tank outside the building on West 10th Street was detonated around 4:38 a.m. yesterday while the building was empty.  Police say the tank didn't fully detonate but caught fire and burned out on its own.  No suspects have been identified in what Medford Police Chief Tim George calls an intentional and criminal act.   

>>Inslee Says Washington Still In Running For 777X

(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington Governor Jay Inslee says even though the Machinists union has rejected Boeing's offer of an eight-year contract extension, Washington is still in the running for the 777X project and intends to be competitive.  Union members voted by a two-to-one margin to reject the offer.  The Washington State Legislature recently approved a nine-billion-dollar tax-incentive package for Boeing in an effort to ensure the manufacture of the 777X and its advanced-technology wing would take place in the Puget Sound region.  Boeing CEO Ray Conner says the outcome of the union vote is disappointing and the company" has no choice but to open the process competitively and pursue all options for the 777X."

>>Late Rally Gives Portland 90-89 Win Over Phoenix

(Portland, OR)  --  The Portland Trail Blazers are on a four-game winning streak after last night's 90-89 win over the Phoenix Suns at the Moda Center.  A Damian Lillard layup with six seconds remaining kept the streak alive for the Blazers.  Thomas Robinson came off the bench to score 15 points and Robin Lopez scored 13 and grabbed 15 rebounds to help the Blazers overcome a nine-point, second-half deficit.  Portland will visit Boston tomorrow night.
