Checking in on the Portland Timbers

Aug. 1, 2013 7:40 p.m.

When they entered their third Major League Soccer season, the Portland Timbers sought a better result than 2012. Last year was bitterly disappointing, as the Timbers finished 8-16-10 and and fired coach John Spencer midway through the season. This year has been nothing short of a rejuvenation. Heading into All-Star game tonight, the Timbers are 8-3-10, looking for their first ever playoff berth. Outside of regular MLS play, the Timbers play perennial powerhouse Real Salt Lake in the U.S. Open Cup Semifinal next Wednesday, their best ever showing in the tournament.  Portland has never had to worry about fairweather fans. The Timbers have sold out every game since their MLS debut in 2011 and boast the infamous Timbers Army, a section of die hard fans that cheer, drum and taunt during every minute of the game. With so much success two-thirds of a way through the season, they're only getting louder.

Drastic New Proposals For Timber Counties

June 6, 2013 7:20 p.m.

The financial distress of former logging counties is a familiar issue for many Oregonians — one which we've covered many times before. But with Josephine and Curry counties once more rejecting public safety levies, the conversation in Salem has taken on an even more urgent tone. Since the levies were voted down last month, Governor Kitzhaber has floated the possibility of imposing an income tax on the cash-strapped counties, and even mobilizing the National Guard as a last resort. Legislators are talking with commissioners and sheriffs from Josephine and Curry counties and are hoping to work out a plan by the end of the legislative session.
