PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Well, it’s not every day someone drops off 4 scorpions at the Keizer Fire Department. But Wednesday was that day. Some people found the scorpions in a container at Keizer Rapids Park and thought they might be dangerous, especially near kids in a play area. So they picked them up and brought them to the fire station on Chemawa Road. But what do you do with 4 live scorpions? Apparently, you name them. Say hello to Timmy, Lynn, Ted, and Jeramiah — the Scorpions of Keizer. A series of phone calls to different state agencies led to a chat with Oregon Department of Agriculture entomologist Tom Valente. He said Timmy, Lynn, Ted and Jeremiah are Pacific Northwest Forest Scorpions. They’re nocturnal, which is why they’re not seen very often and they prefer moister conditions like under rocks or logs on the ground. And, Valente said, they’re not aggressive. They can and do sometimes sting, but mostly they play dead when they’re disturbed. Glamour shots are next for the quartet. Then they’ll hit the road for events like the Oregon State Fair and will likely spend the rest of their life as celebrities. They may also rock you like a hurricane.

SANDY, Utah (ABC4 Sports) – Since beating the Netherlands ten days ago to win a second straight World Cup, it has been a non-stop celebration for the U.S. Women’s Soccer team. Kelley O’Hara, Becky Sauerbrunn and Christen Press return to the Utah Royals Wednesday, still riding high from their historic tournament run. “I think my favorite part was immediately following the game in the locker room, celebrating with everybody,” Sauerbrunn said. “It was so much fun, dancing and lots of champagne.” “It’s such an intense environment for such a long time,” added O’Hara. “It was nice to finally exhale and actually be able to celebrate and know there were no more games on the other side.” Sauerbrunn and O’Hara were fixtures in the starting lineup for Team USA throughout the World Cup. Press, who did not attend the news conference, was not. But she scored a key goal in the semifinals against England. “Regardless of who’s starting, it’s 23 players that win us a World Cup,” O’Hara said. “Christen was a great example of that. She did a great job coming in the semifinal and scoring a goal.” A lot has been said about this group. Were they the best team ever? Were they too arrogant, too political? Regardless, this team had very high expectations, and they fulfilled them. “It’s a strength of the team that we don’t really care,” O’Hara said. “We don’t really allow that to come into the bubble and affect us. As much as people say, oh it’s the World Cup, it’s it’s a dream to play at the World Cup, it’s not super fun all the time. It’s a grind. There’s a lot of pressure and expectation.” “I also think it’s unfair to miscontrue self-belief with arrogance,” Sauerbrunn added. This team also brought the equal pay issue to the forefront of the national conversation, and they’re not going to stop talking about it. “I think it’s hugely important for us to be able to lend our voice to it and to be a representation of that fight,” Sauerbrunn said. “I think it’s something that we willingly take on.” Now the question, can the National Women’s Soccer League capitalize on the success of the World Cup team? Almost the entire World Cup team competes in the league, and the Royals sure hope the interest continues to grow. “I think we already saw a bump in attendance even from last week’s games and the American players hadn’t even showed up yet,” Sauerbrunn said. “So, what I hope and what I anticipate is that attendance will be up, and hopefully we can carry that momentum throughout the rest of the season. So, I think the support has been great, but I hope to see even more of it.” Sauerbrunn, O’Hara and Press will all be honored before the Royals game against Portland Friday night at Rio Tinto Stadium. However, it is unclear if any of the players will return to action.

Corner of the Galaxy

CARSON, Calif. – LA Galaxy goalkeeper David Bingham isn’t interested in moral victories, which helps explain his reticence to accept praise for his strong performance in last Friday’s otherwise unsettling 3-1 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes at Dignity Health Sports Park. Bingham did give up three goals, but if not for his gutsy play […]

WASHINGTON (Nexstar) — Mayors who are leading the way in efforts to reduce pollution and fight climate change were invited to Washington DC to share their ideas about how similar efforts can be implemented nationally. “We’ve done it while our population has ballooned and our economy has thrived,” Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said. “So the first message I want to get across is that you can in fact be a thriving community and achieve your sustainability goals. They’re not mutually exclusive.” Wheeler said Portland has been leading the way on reducing carbon emissions by incorporating green transportation by encouraging people to walk or bike to work. He said it’s possible to duplicate that nationally if the government provides safe infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians and fast, affordable, convenient public transportation. He also has ideas for how to pay for it. “Tolling on federal roadways,” he said. “Right now there’s a prohibition against tolling on federal roadways that are in existence.” Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell was invited in part because his city created a permanent climate change office and Honolulu is committed to planting 100,000 trees by 2025 and taking steps to deal with rising sea levels. “We’re raising buildings in the urban core, but we’re retreating from the ocean and areas where we let the beach erode,” Caldwell said. The mayors spoke to a room full of Democratic senators but in order to pass any federal climate legislation, Republicans would need to be on board too. “It’s not a Republican issue or a Democrat issue, it’s an issue for our time its an issue for our children and I would only hope that republicans would come on board to this committee,” Caldwell said.

PORTLAND, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Portland man was arrested on second-degree murder charges, accused of supplying the drugs that killed a man this past February. It took Portland detectives five months to put this case together using toxicology results, numerous interviews, and chasing countless clues. Last week a Sumner County Grand Jury handed down an indictment. Tuesday, Detectives arrested Daniel Lemmons and charged him with second-degree murder in the overdose death of Raymond Anthony Sadler in early February 2019. Family members, who called 911, found the 33-year-old unresponsive – on the bathroom floor. 911: is he breathing? caller: He is cold. Pretty cold. I can’t hear him breathing. 911: And you don’t see any drugs around him? Caller: Yeah, there’s a needle on the floor in here. 911: There is a needle? On Tuesday evening, Portland police arrested Daniel Lemmons on charges of second-degree murder Detective Jason Arnold says the allegation is, Lemmons sold the drugs that had the fentanyl that killed Sadler. Detective Arnold says upon his arrest, Lemmons said nothing constructive. “No, he refused to cooperate. he consistently lied to us and we were able to prove that everything he said was a lie.” Chief Anthony Heavner says “My officers are very dedicated. The detectives worked extremely hard and were diligent in their search to get to the truth.” Heavner says investigating the case back to its origins is now the new normal for law enforcement. Heavner says “We are taking a much different approach to get back to the source. Our goal is to work it back. and we take every step we can to do that. We leave no stone unturned, and this is proof we will do everything we can to make you responsible.” Mr. Lemmons is in the Sumner County jail charged with second-degree murder. His bond is $250,000.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A federal judge will allow Oregon ranchers who were convicted of intentionally setting fires on public land to graze cattle on parts of a federal allotment this season on a limited basis. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports U.S. District Judge Michael H. Simon issued the ruling Tuesday, granting a partial preliminary injunction as environmental advocacy groups continue to challenge the Hammond Ranches Inc.’s federal grazing permit. The judge approved a U.S. Bureau of Land Management alternative grazing plan proposed last month which the Western Watersheds Project, the Center for Biological Diversity and Wildearth Guardians had rejected. Simon ordered no grazing on the federal Mud Creek allotment but allowed for cattle to “trail through” that parcel to get to the federal Hardie Summer allotment, where cattle can graze at a 30% utilization standard, lower than the standard allowed in the ranchers’ permit, on four of five pastures.
