PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The Port of Portland’s container yard closed for the second day in a row. This time following an argument between security workers and longshoremen. A port spokesman told The Oregonian that the angry words were exchanged yesterday after longshoremen started moving traffic cones in a parking lot. The closure came a day after dockworkers stopped working to honor a picket line. The Terminal 6 container terminal has been the site of repeated turmoil since 2012.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) – A proposal to develop an 85-mile trail along an old railroad bed in Northwestern Oregon is gaining steam in Salem. The old Pacific Railway and Navigation Company line linking the towns of Banks and Tillamook was devastated in a 2007 flood and never reopened. The state House approved a bill yesterday directing state agencies to work with local governments to develop a plan for constructing the trail.

COQUILLE, Ore. (AP) – An Oregon judge has sentenced a Lane County man to 10 years in prison for killing his half-brother last fall. The World newspaper reports that the judge sentenced Ladd Robson on Tuesday for first-degree manslaughter under the terms of a plea agreement.

TUALATIN, Ore. (AP) – Police in the Portland suburb of Tualatin say a commercial truck driver was unhurt when one of the massive steel beams he was hauling crashed through his truck cab and broke out a front window. A police spokeswoman says the truck lost its load late yesterday afternoon.
