LOS ANGELES - Heiress Paris Hilton said Wednesday it was her claustrophobia that caused the most problems while doing time in a California jail. Hilton, in her first post-pokey interview, told CNN's Larry King she had a "panic attack" when first placed in her cell. "I wasn't sleeping. I wasn't eating," she said, and when told she would have to return to jail after being sent home by the sheriff, "I was terrified." But she ... [full story]

The Oregon Department of Transportation is encouraging motorists, during the busy summer traveling season and beyond, to practice safe driving — and conserve fuel at the same time. Studies show the faster you drive, the more fuel you use: and speed is the number one factor in crash fatalities in Oregon. So "slow down" is the phrase everyone is using. "With the Fourth of July falling on a Wednesday this year, we’re anticipating heavy traffic on the ... [full story]

After jumping sharply between mid-May and mid-June, mortgage rates have now declined in each of the past two weeks. The average 30-year fixed mortgage rate retreated to 6.74 percent.

Existing-home sales were essentially unchanged in May, according to the National Association of Realtors. Total existing-home sales -- including single-family, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops -- eased by 0.3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate(1) of 5.99 million units in May from an upwardly revised pace of 6.01 million in April, and are 10.3 percent below the 6.68 million-unit level in May 2006. Lawrence Yun, NAR senior economist, said the market softness is understandable. "I ... [full story]

Heavy consumer demand increases prices and acreage Consumers want them, Oregon growers are providing them. Blueberry harvest is underway with another year of expected good prices and record-breaking production putting a smile on the industry's face. How long will the good times last is anybody's guess, but the state's 300 or so blueberry producers are going to enjoy it while they can."It means we can actually farm and make a profit," says St. Paul blueberry grower ...

Most of official Washington had gone home Monday night when Sen. Richard G. Lugar, R-Ind., made an unannounced 50-minute speech on the floor of the Senate. In years to come, it may be remembered as the moment when America's tragic misadventure in Iraq began to turn in a positive direction. Lugar, a 31-year Senate veteran, arguably is its most respected voice on foreign affairs. On Monday, he broke with his president and the leader of ... [full story]

So far, so good. The bipartisan immigration bill inched forward Tuesday when a majority of senators voted to revive the legislation and begin debating amendments. It is expected that, by Thursday, another vote will be held - this one to close the debate entirely and put the measure to a vote. As it stands, the outcome is too close to call. Yet supporters have reason to be optimistic. But what if? What if the Senate ... [full story]

It's bewildering that the Supreme Court's decision Monday to strike down a key provision of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law is being hailed in some quarters as a victory for free speech. The speech in question is contained in broadcast ads, which can cost upward of several hundred thousand dollars a minute. This kind of speech is absolutely essential to winning elections, but it is free only if you can afford it, which is not ... [full story]

An estimated 5,000 lynchings took place during the Jim Crow and civil rights eras. Most went unsolved, but some of the people responsible for those and other horrific race murders are still alive. There is still time to hold them accountable. That's the idea behind the Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crime Act, which recently passed the U.S. House of Representatives on a 422 to 2 vote but has since stalled in the Senate. The ...

The U.S. Supreme Court this week issued two rulings on speech issues and got both cases mostly right, but could have done better. Incredibly, in a nation whose fundamental charter contains the words "Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech," it is a criminal offense for corporations, unions or interest groups such as Right to Life or the American Civil Liberties Union to speak freely in the form of paid advertising about ...
