Thanks so much for checking in on the blog this morning. For those of you who have stumbled on this by chance, please go to my "In the News" Facebook page for the ongoing news links that come in throughout the day. I do not duplicate what our local news station does, but I do share Associate Press stories and stories from state and regional newspapers and t.v. stations. My intent with this page is to inform you about news that we might not otherwise hear about.
In the short time that I have been working on this news experiment, I have noticed some patterns. It seems like some days have more road rage and traffic situations (not weather related); that there are a LOT more stabbings or attempted stabbings than shootings, and that there are a lot of folks trying to kill themselves around here.
I have also become aware that there are a lot of missing people from Oregon that have never been found. These two links have me interested in learning more about that: "Go Local PDX's list of 18 Oregon people who vanished in 2014" and "Oregon's Missing Persons Blog" Facebook page.
Luckily, Eliana Perkings (age 13) from Seattle has been found safe. She went missing on January 20th and was gone for nearly a week.
People Want Hannah Home:
Hannah Thomas-Garner has been missing since November. Hannah left with Sylvia Davis. Sylvia was found in December, and was with a man who was soon arrested. Hannah has not been heard from since. Her car was found damaged in California. The police consider her a run-away, but her parents do not. Here is yesterday's article about "Ashland teen's schoolmates want her back home."
Here is the link to more information about the backstory.
Also, there is a Facebook page set up: "Bring Hannah Home Soon".
