The Lincoln County District Attorney’s Office has determined that the use of deadly physical force by law enforcement on April 24, 2011, was justified. Just after 3:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 24, 2011, Newport Police Officers and Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to J. C. Market in Newport on a report of a subject creating a disturbance and brandishing a machete. When confronted, the suspect, Troy Paul Holmes, 22, failed to comply with orders from officers. The suspect posed a continuing serious and immediate threat to the officers. Non-lethal force, namely a taser, was used by Newport Police Officer Thomas Lekas, but was not effective. Mr Holmes continued to refuse to comply with orders from the officers. While brandishing a knife, Mr Holmes then charged at Officer Lekas and was shot twice by Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy Eric Sorby. At that point, Mr Holmes complied and surrendered a knife and a machete.

Mr Homes was then given immediate first aid by deputies and medical personnel at the scene, and was subsequently transported to the hospital. As of this time, Mr Holmes is listed in fair condition at Oregon Health Sciences University. Following the incident, in accordance with the Lincoln County Deadly Physical Force Plan,
investigators with the Lincoln County Major Crime Team interviewed witnesses, gathered evidence, and reviewed surveillance videos taken at the scene by J. C. Market.

With the assistance of the lead detectives from the Lincoln City Police Department and Oregon State Police, the details of the investigation, as well as the surveillance videos, were reviewed by representatives of the District Attorney’s Office. “The use of deadly physical force during this incident by Deputy Eric Sorby was justified,”
said District Attorney Rob Bovett. “The conduct of Mr Holmes placed Officer Lekas in immediate danger of bodily injury, and Deputy Sorby was left with no choice but to use deadly physical force.”

The conduct of Mr Holmes prior to and leading up to the arrival of officers on the scene on April 24, 2011, is still under investigation. For more information, contact Rob Bovett at or 541-265-4145.

For 11 years now, Pacific Power’s Blue Sky customers have made a difference by personally supporting renewable energy in the western United States. Since 2006, by participating in the voluntary green pricing program, these customers have also helped fund 39 new community-based renewable energy projects in Oregon, Washington and California. Many of these projects are now completed, generating electricity and providing educational opportunities about the advancement of renewable energy and we’re looking for more.

“We’re honored to be able to offer these funding awards to help support new community-based renewable energy projects in our service area,” said Pat Egan, vice president of customer and community affairs for Pacific Power. “We look forward to seeing this round of applications and selecting projects that demonstrate significant community benefit for our customers.”

This funding is available for projects in Pacific Power’s service area that are locally owned and have a generating capacity of less than 10 megawatts of electricity. Projects must be completed by Dec. 31, 2012 and should focus on encouraging renewable energy market transformation. Preference is given to local, community-based projects that develop renewable energy generation, support educational efforts to bring broader understanding of renewable energy development and generation, and/or invest in research and demonstration of new generation technologies.

Funding is not available for off-grid or residential projects, for passive or thermal solar energy projects, or for geothermal heat pump systems. Other restrictions also apply. For detailed criteria on project qualifications and application forms, please go to:

Domestic violence protections soon to be applied to pets?

 Daily News  Comments Off on Domestic violence protections soon to be applied to pets?
May 022011

SALEM – Domestic violence victims that fear for the safety of their animal companions may find comfort with a bill passed this morning in the Oregon Senate. Senate Bill 616 will allow judges to include pets under domestic violence restraining orders. Twelve independent studies have reported that between 18 percent and 48 percent of battered women delay leaving abusive situations out of fear for the safety of their animals.

“This change may encourage some victims of domestic violence to seek help sooner,” said Senate Majority Leader Diane Rosenbaum (D-Portland), a chief sponsor of the bill. “Cruelty to animals can be a serious part of the cycle of family violence. The fear that something could happen to a loved animal can be paralyzing and prevent a partner from leaving an abusive relationship.”

Currently, Oregon’s statute on whether a judge can include an animal in a restraining order is ambiguous. SB 616 clarifies Oregon’s existing Family Abuse Prevention Law to ensure that all judges know that they are able to include animals in protective orders.

“This bill addresses the uncertainty in our current statute and lets our judges know that animals can be included in a protective order,” said Senator Floyd Prozanski (D-Eugene), member of leadership. “The need for this legislation has been well-documented. It is clear that many victims are afraid to leave an abusive relationship and leaving behind a loved animal that could be hurt or even killed makes the decision to leave even more difficult.”

The relationship between animal abuse and domestic violence is well-documented. In a Wisconsin study, 68 percent of battered women reported that their animals had been the target of violence. Of these incidents, 87 percent occurred in the presence of the victim in order to further intimidate and control them.

“A cherished pet can be an easy target for an abusive partner,” said Senator Jackie Dingfelder (D-Portland), who carried the bill on the floor. “Animal violence is strongly linked to person-on-person violence and it’s not surprising that some abusers use the threat of hurting a pet to scare a partner into staying.”

Oregon would join sixteen other states with laws protecting animals in domestic violence situations if SB 616 is passed. The bill now goes to the House for consideration.

Osama bin Laden is dead – White House

May 012011

Al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was reported tracked down today and executed by American Special Forces inside Pakistan. There was no involvement by Pakistan’s military. President Barack Obama reported that American forces entered a residential compound inside Pakistan, engaged in a firefight with bin Laden protectors, and shot Osama bin Laden in the head. Brain tissue DNA from bin Laden’s body was verifed that it was bin Laden’s remains that were snatched by American forces. His body remains in American custody.

President Obama said the operation began last August on a tip to American interests in the region. The President said that Pakistani officials helped along the way in providing crucial information that led up to the attack. It was carried out in an isolated area near Abbottadad, well north of Islamabad.

Here are some thoughts from a few Newport area residents on the death of the al Qaida leader in Pakistan.

Updated information as to the assault on bin Laden’s hiding place Click here.

Comment on the death of bin Laden from Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley:
“I salute President Obama and his exceptional team on bringing Osama bin Laden to justice. The President’s resolute determination and the hard work, perseverance, and bravery of so many in the United States intelligence community and military ensured that attacks on Americans would not go unanswered. We will never forget the more than 3,000 American lives that were lost on September 11, 2001 and in other al Qaeda attacks, and this is a welcome measure of justice for their families and our nation. As we continue the offensive against al Qaeda and terrorist extremists wherever in the world they may be, this milestone will serve as a reminder that when America commits itself to a goal, it will prevail.”

From Oregon’s other U.S. Senator Ron Wyden:
“Osama bin Laden was more than a killer, he was the founder and leader of a terrorist organization determined to make a name for itself by taking thousands of innocent lives and spreading chaos and fear around the globe. I congratulate the service members and intelligence professionals who made the operation that led to his death yesterday possible, as well as the hundreds of thousands of men and women who have fought and sacrificed for a future free of that fear.

“While killing bin Laden can not bring back the innocents whose lives he took, it is my hope that the news of his death will bring some measure of peace to their loved ones. But it is important for the world to understand that the operation that led to bin Laden’s death was not an act of revenge – it was an act of war.

“Al Qaeda has now lost its founder and leader at a time when the organization is under intense pressure and is already in crisis. The peaceful revolutions that have been spreading throughout the Middle East directly refute bin Laden’s core claim that violent terrorist acts are the only way to bring change to the Muslim world. It is my hope that bin Laden’s death will be seen as a milestone, as people around the Middle East continue to push forward on their path towards freedom and opportunity, while al Qaeda continues on a path of decline.”
