Council members approved the new rules for smaller events in the city last night during their meeting.  Before the vote, neighbors near the Century Center said the noise problem isn't going away and that zoning changes could solve the problem and protect the neighborhood in the future. A resident speaks up: "I think it's important to maintain the integrity of this neighborhood.  The neighborhood’s been there for 90 years, and they've just been here for a couple of years. OSU / Cascades is going in over there and I think its really important that we pay attention to how this neighborhood is developed going forward, and try to maintain some integrity.  It’s a historical neighborhood- it'd like to protect it if we can.”  Wednesday night, the city did approve a new noise ordinance  that mandates "quiet hours" between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.  But only for smaller events.  And some special permits for concerts may also be allowed.  Its not clear yet how the new rules will affect concerts near the Century Center.

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
