Over 100 boats have been cleaned up from our two main waterways since last summer as part of a new joint operation from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office and Metro.

This new team is heroes that help other heroes focus.
And finally, there’s a few reasons to root for the Niners this weekend in the Superbowl. Deommodore Lenoir & Arik Armstead both played for University of Oregon, and Ben Bartch, who plays guard is from McMinnville and went to Blanchet in Salem. So there you go, wear red this weekend. It’s the safest.
