The newspaper blamed television for the “continuing rash of senseless murder and killing in the United States.”

“The killing of two persons in an Atlanta church recently ... was a particular senseless act of violence — in the same insensitive pattern as so much glamorized, cold blooded television crime,” the paper stated.

An Eagle Creek man sued American Airlines for $300,000 for causing the deaths of seven of his greyhound racing dogs and serious injury to two others.

The lawsuit contended that while flying from Portland to Boston in 1983, the airline left the dogs in extreme heat without shade, water or shelter while awaiting transfer to another flight in Dallas/Fort Worth.


Estacada and Molalla were hoping to get their hands on economic aid promised by the Clinton administration to timber-dependent communities.

Officials worried that Clackamas County was seen as a suburb of Portland — a perception which could cut them out of the money.

“Seventy-four percent of our land mass is zoned for timber,” said Clackamas County Commissioner Judie Hammerstad. “We really are not just a bedroom community for Portland.”


The “Mean Creek” production company, Ironic, returned to Estacada to shoot “Nearing Grace,” a movie set in 1979 New Jersey in which a boy loses his mother shortly before his high school graduation.
