The state bill that would block construction of a footbridge over the Deschutes is slated for a work session in Salem, later this week.
It may be road construction season, but state crews are working on fewer projects, compared to recent years. And, one major project in South County was temporarily halted on Friday.
The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says local residents have fallen victim to the phone scam that involves claims a person has a warrant for missing jury duty.
The driver was heading home from downtown Bend when he reportedly hit a juniper tree and a rock embankment on Old Bend Redmond Highway, before flipping his car, early this morning.
City officials have asked for the Historic District designation to encompass 46 properties in the downtown commercial area.
