Good morning, it’s Friday, Sept. 26. Here are this morning’s headlines:
- State Rep. Dennis Richardson’s gubernatorial campaign was fined after failing to report on time his rent-free stay at the upscale home of a Lake Oswego donor, said the Secretary of State’s office.
- Portland City Commissioner Amanda Fritz announced plans to honor her husband, Dr. Steven Fritz, who was killed in a car collision this week. The Fritz family will hold a public service on Sunday.
- Eugene has put in a bid to host the 2019 World Outdoor Track & Field Championships to Hayward Field. That follows TrackTown USA’s successful hosting of the World Junior Track & Field Championships this year.
- The Seattle City Council approved a ban on the municipal use of pesticides that have been linked to bee deaths.
- Ashland High School is ending its tradition of crowning a homecoming king and queen this year. School officials say the new method was chosen “to avoid exclusion and to focus more on students’ actions than on their popularity.”
