Hey, Neighbor!


  1. Hillsboro: An airplane’s landing gear folded up shortly after touching down at Hillsboro Airport, causing the plane to skid to a stop on its underbelly. All three on board were treated for minor injuries.

  2. Northwest: Bad things happen in threes: Compleat Bed Breakfast, Elizabeth Street and Steel for Men, all businesses on Northwest 23rd Avenue, are closing. Meanwhile, Christmas at the Zoo still maintains year-round good cheer.

  3. North: Belmont Station tapped the first public keg from new North Portland brewery Upright Brewing on April 21, the same day the Blazers beat the Rockets in game 2. Which might explain why the keg of Studebacher Hoch Strong Ale was empty by night’s end.

  4. Southwest: Twenty-year-old Andrew Roy Berg was driving the motorcycle and 18-year-old Hayley McKenzie Emmons was riding on the back when it crashed into a pickup truck April 22, killing them both. The truck driver was not cited and was treated for minor injuries.

  1. Southeast: Heavy-metal band Mastodon played a sold-out, sweat-soaked show at the Hawthorne Theatre last week, prompting The Oregonian to report Sunday that there are “bad vibes in Portland’s trendy Hawthorne.”

  2. Southeast: Dozens of bicycle riders got flat tires when tacks were found strewn across the Springwater Corridor Trail last week, east of Powell Butte near the bridge at Southeast Circle Avenue.

  3. Gresham: John Miner, superintendent of the Gresham-Barlow School District, announced an $11 million budget cut, which translates to at least 114 lost jobs: 68.8 full-time teaching positions, 38 support staff positions and 7.8 administration positions.
