>>Portland Home Prices Higher

(Portland, OR)  --  Portland is among the major U.S. cities that saw significant increases in home prices during September.  The Standard & Poor's-Case-Shiller index shows home prices in the Portland area were 13-point-five percent higher in September from the same month in 2012.  All but one of the 20 cities included in the survey showed higher home prices.  Economists are predicting continued increases in home prices and declines in the number of foreclosed properties.

>>Sentencing Delayed For Mohamud

(Portland, OR)  --  Sentencing for a man convicted of trying to set off a bomb at a Christmas-tree lighting ceremony in downtown Portland is being delayed.  A federal judge has delayed sentencing for Mohamed Mohamud until further notice after it was revealed that the U.S. Department of Justice used information received through the use of warrantless wiretaps to build its case against Mohamud.  Mohamud was found guilty in January after he went on trial for using a cell phone to try to detonate what he thought was a live bomb near Pioneer Square in November 2010.  The court will reset the sentencing hearing after ruling on the anticipated motions.   

>>Fire Damage At Fruit Company Estimated At $2-Million

(Odell, OR)  --  Officials say the damage caused by a fire at the Diamond Fruit Growers plant in Hood River County has been estimated at two-million dollars.  The massive fire destroyed thousands of empty fruit bins at the facility but spared the main building.  Two houses nearby sustained minor damage.  Investigators haven't yet determined what caused Tuesday's fire.

>>Bomb Squad Destroys Explosive Device At Portland Church

(Portland, OR)  --  Authorities say a suspicious device that was found at a Southeast Portland church was an improvised explosive.  Police were dispatched yesterday morning to the Montavilla United Methodist Church on Southeast 80th Avenue in response to a report of a suspicious device.  The Metropolitan Explosives Disposal Unit examined the item and destroyed it.  The FBI and ATF are involved in the investigation. 

>>Thurmond Suspension Official

(Renton, WA)  --  The Seattle Seahawks are dealing with the four-game suspension of cornerback Walter Thurmond by planning to give more playing time to backups Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane.  The NFL has made Thurmond's suspension official, saying he violated the league's substance-abuse policy.  He'll be eligible to return to the active roster on December 23rd, prior to the Seahawks' final regular-season game.  Seattle has signed former 49ers corner Perrish Cox to fill Thurmond's roster spot.
