Audit: Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Needs Improvements

EV Conference Showcases Electric Tractors

PORTLAND, OR -- A major conference on electric mobility is happening now in Portland. The Roadmap Conference is organized by FORTH. Executive Director Jeff Allen says they’re showcasing a variety of EVs, including electric tractors, which don't rely on expensive diesel. "A lot of the diesel that farms burn, they burn idling. Of course, with an electric tractor, you’re not using any fuel if it’s not moving," Allen tells KBND News, "And electricity is a lot more predictable. It’s regulated. You know what it’s going to cost." FORTH is working with a handful of Oregon farmers to test out this new technology and provide feedback, "We’re also finding [farmers] love the fact that they’re quiet and they don’t stink."

Allen says FORTH has two electric tractors rotating around the state, including at a Sisters-area ranch. There are only a handful in use around the country. They’re not big - 30 to 40 horsepower. But Allen says they could have a positive impact on a farmer’s bottom line, "Batteries and electric drivetrain, and all that technology, the costs have been going down dramatically and quality has been going up dramatically."

Those tech improvements and the rising cost of fuel are pushing expansion of electrification, which is the focus of this week's Roadmap Conference, "We’re talking about all kinds of electric vehicles: tractors, cars, school buses, planes, boats, you name it. Pretty much, if it moves, it’s going electric."

Wyden, Mayors Oppose LIV Golf Tournament

PORTLAND, OR -- LIV Golf, competing with the PGA for golf fans, opens its U.S. series of tournaments in Oregon this week. But the event at Pumpkin Ridge is drawing a lot of local opposition.

U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) says a Saudi man is responsible for killing an Oregon teen in a 2016 hit and run. His government then allegedly helped him get an illegal passport and he fled the country, avoiding prosecution. Wyden says that same Saudi government is backing LIV Golf. Its first U.S. tournament starts Thursday west of Portland. "When U.S. sports institutions partner with these governments, they are, in effect, allies in these cover-ups and selling out integrity for profits," Wyden said at a recent press conference with four area mayors.

Eleven Washington County mayors signed a letter opposing the tournament at Pumpkin Ridge in North Plains. Beaverton Mayor Lacey Beaty says, "Not all money is welcome in our community. We want our community to know we have no political power to stop this. So, we’re partnering with other levels of government to speak our outrage in public." Because Pumpkin Ridge is a private company, the mayors say they were unable to prevent the tournament from coming here. 

Beatty says because Mayors come from different political backgrounds, they don’t often speak with one voice, "This is not a political issue. This is an issue of safety; this is an issue of an unwelcome tournament coming into our own backyard. Because, if something goes wrong, it’s all of our police departments that are going to be expected to respond on a holiday weekend."

They point to Saudi Arabia’s human rights violations and referred to the tournament as “blood money” for their region.

Pets At Risk As Weather Warms

PORTLAND, OR-- This weekend’s warm weather is a welcomed shift for us humans, but our pets may not be as excited for summer.  

"People might be thinking, ‘oh my gosh. I can’t wait to get outside. I’m going to take my dog out for a long hike; it’s gonna be amazing’," says the Oregon Humane Society's Laura Klink, "But, it’s going to be kind of shocking to the system." She says our pets are not yet accustomed to the heat and they may not be ready for intense outdoor exercise.

There are also other hazards to consider, pavement can burn paws, especially later in the day, and a hot car can be deadly, "A car can heat up really quickly. Even if it feels comfortable outside, like maybe low to mid-70s, the inside of a car can quickly get over 100 degrees. And that’s even with the window cracked a little bit." Klink adds, "When in doubt, just leave your pet at home with a nice comfy bed and a chewy toy. Safest bet is to always just leave them home in the cool inside temperatures."

Signs your pet is struggling with the heat include excessive panting and lethargy.

Ag Groups Form Water Alliance Amid Ongoing Drought

PORTLAND, OR-- A new group of ag organizations hopes to tackle drought concerns threatening their livelihood and our food supply. Members of the newly formed Oregon Agricultural Water Alliance include the Oregon Farm Bureau, Oregon Cattleman’s Association, Oregon Dairy Farmers Association, Oregon Water Resources Congress and Jeff Stone’s group, the Oregon Association of Nurseries.

Stone says extreme, recurring drought threatens them all, "Since the state is so diverse, in terms of water availability versus the type of farming, we try to speak with a common voice to make sure a drought doesn’t disproportionately impact one segment of agriculture versus another." He tells KBND News, "Snowpack no longer really is our great savior for continued water supply. We have to look at rainfall and capturing that rainfall. And, there are a lot of multiple uses for water, so I think we can look and say, ‘what are things that we can do in order so there wouldn’t be a water war?’"

He hopes the new alliance will eventually impact state law and provide accountability in decision-making, "Water should be bipartisan. It should not care who the Governor is or who is in charge of the legislature."

Hardesty Calls For Action Against Racism This Juneteenth

IPR Recommends Better Training For SVU

(Portland, OR) -- An independent review finds the Portland Police Bureau needs to give officers better training to help domestic violence victims. The City Auditor's Independent Police Review released a report yesterday reviewing the effectiveness of the police bureau's Special Victims Unit. The report says officers responding to initial calls in domestic violence cases need more trauma-informed training to help them understand how trauma affects a survivor's behavior. That includes teaching officers why sexual assault survivors often don't flee, cry out or fight back against their attackers and why survivors might refuse help, lie to police or choose to stay with their abuser. The review also found that the Special Victims Unit benefits from its co-location and collaboration with partner agencies such as the Multnomah County's Domestic Violence Enhanced Response Team. Partner agencies interviewed said the unit should remain in its current location in order to continue facilitating that collaboration.
