Shelby Houlihan doping case overshadows Olympic track trials

EUGENE, Ore. — The House that Uncle Phil built, the new $200 million track and field stadium on the University of Oregon campus, comes with a barbershop, salon – manicure or pedicure, Tara Davis? – not much roof, and a number of food options. The most talked-about entrée at the U.S. Olympic Trials the next 10 days, however, is not on the stadium’s menu. The Court of Arbitration for Sport this week upheld the previously undisclosed four-year ban of Shelby Houlihan, the American record-holder at 1...

Top progressives come out swinging against possible gas tax in bipartisan infrastructure plan since it would hurt lower-income Americans

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont). Jim Watson/Pool via AP Progressives are assailing the idea of indexing the gas tax to inflation, which forms part of the infrastructure blueprint. "Indexing the gas tax is just a way to raise taxes on working people next year instead of this year," a top Democrat said Wednesday. The possible bump to the gas tax could generate only $35 billion over a decade. See more stories on Insider's business page. Some key progressives are swinging at one particular...

Dysfunction, infighting grip Proud Boys in wake of Capitol riot

By Marshall Cohen | CNN A private Proud Boys audio chat that was made public Tuesday shows how the right-wing group fell into dysfunction and finger-pointing as its members got arrested after the US Capitol riot.

The FBI, which had seized Nordean’s cell phone, found the audio clips on the Telegram app and produced the transcript. Prosecutors ga...

Ladera Ranch man organized ‘armed fighters’ for Capitol riot, new court filing says

A Ladera Ranch entrepreneur is suspected of “organizing and fomenting” a group of “armed fighters” to stop Congress’ certification of the presidential election, according to a court filing by federal prosecutors on Tuesday expanding on his alleged role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

As long as ODOT thinks roads like this (SW Barbur Blvd) are OK, we will never reach that vision (taken from ODOT Transportation Safety Action Plan).(Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) The 502 people who died while using Oregon roads in 2018 was a 15-year high.

Greater Idaho, the latest split-state proposal

It’s no secret that plenty of folks in California’s rural northern counties would love to leave the Golden State and form one of their own – the most persistent such plan has been called the State of Jefferson since the notion first appeared in the 1940s. Rural residents in counties from Lassen to Lake have long felt dominated in setting policies affecting their rivers, timber and other essentials by the urban masses of the San Francisco Bay area and Southern California. This feeling took off in...
