Women's March Floods Washington, Sparking Rallies Worldwide

Updated at 4 p.m. ET The National Mall has flooded with pink, as demonstrators descend on the nation's capital Saturday for the Women's March on Washington. Just one day after President Trump's inauguration, marchers from across the country have gathered in the city to protest his agenda and support for women's rights. The event opened with a rally, to be followed by the march proper — which had a path laid out from a starting position near the U.S. Capitol to its endpoint near the Washington...

JPR Live Session: Jeffrey Foucault

One of the finest songwriters of his generation, Jeffrey Foucault has taken, in his own words, ‘ the small roads; ’ building a brick and mortar independent international touring career of ten studio albums, countless miles and critical accolades. He’s been lauded for "stark, literate songs that are as wide open as the landscape of his native Midwest" (The New Yorker) and described as "quietly brilliant" (The Irish Times), while catching the ear of everyone from Greil Marcus to Don Henley to Van Dyke Parks.

Environmental Group Concerned About EPA Boss-Designate

The Oregon Environmental Council is a non-partisan non-profit focused on the environmental health of living things in Oregon. That's rather like the mission of the federal Environmental Protection Agency. But OEC is concerned with President-Elect Trump's choice to head the EPA, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt. Pruitt is a climate change denier who has taken the EPA to court on several occasions. OEC's Deputy Director, Chris Hagerbaumer, has many stories to tell about environmental successes in Oregon and how she hopes they'll continue under new EPA leadership.

PHOTOS: A Drone's View Of The World

At Goats and Soda we're always watching the developing world. A group of international photographers is doing the same thing — but from a drone's perspective.

Here are a few of the eye-catching images we came across and the stories behind them. An Island Home Zorik Olangi grew up on Malaita, which is part of the Solomon Islands in Oceania. He's now...

Survey Finds Lyft Drivers Happier Than Uber, Though Pay Has Declined

Hundreds of thousands of Americans are now working as contractors for the rapidly growing ride-hailing industry, specifically for the largest companies, Uber and Lyft. But a new survey , released this week, finds that Lyft, with its fluorescent pink mustache symbol, is more popular with drivers. More than 75 percent of Lyft drivers said they were satisfied with their experience, while less than half of Uber drivers said the same. Lyft is a significantly smaller company, but its drivers made...

Terry Johnson stood watch behind the Clatsop County Republicans’ table at the 2015 county fair. At the time, 17 candidates were vying for the Republican presidential nomination.

To Johnson’s surprise, he heard Donald Trump’s name uttered repeatedly. So he decided to take a poll. Once the roughly 90 votes were counted, he said, Trump received 45 percent.

“That’s about the time I started getting on board with the possibility of Trump becoming the nominee,” he recalled.

A newly inaugurated Donald J. Trump delivered a fiercely populist and often dark address, promising to transfer power in Washington from political elites to the people and vowing to put "America first."

Surrounded by members of Congress and the Supreme Court, the nation's 45th president repeated themes from his historic and divisive campaign message, describing children in poverty, schools in crisis and streets pocked with crime and "carnage."

Snow is coming down on mountain passes in the region. 

The following school districts have announced schedule changes for today.

  • Schools in the Mount Shasta Union School District: Mount Shasta Elementary and Sisson Schools
  • Dunsmuir Schools: Dunsmuir High, Dunsmuir Elementary, and Dunsmuir State Preschool

President-elect Donald Trump plans to hit the ground running. He could sign his first executive orders within hours of taking the oath of office.

"I've asked my transition team to develop a list of executive actions we can take on Day 1 to restore our laws and bring back our jobs," Trump said in a videotaped message in November. "It's about time."

Vice President-elect Mike Pence echoed that message in a meeting with reporters on Thursday.

"Our job is to be ready on Day 1," Pence said. "We are all ready to go to work."

The incoming president has promised to:

Just over 10 weeks after the idea was first proposed in a Facebook post, tens of thousands of protesters are heading to the nation's capital for the Women's March on Washington on Saturday.

Similar marches are planned in more than 600 other cities and towns around the world. But the largest is expected to take place in Washington, D.C., less than 24 hours into the presidency of Donald Trump.

Alexander Clarke-Ritter sits facing his attorney in a conference room on the 34th floor of the U.S. Bank Tower in downtown Portland. On the table between them sits a small stack of personal documents.

“I need to renew my passport. It’s going to expire within the next four years," Clarke-Ritter said. "I also need to update my birth certificate not only with my new name but also my gender marker, because it still says female.”

The chief budget-writers for the Oregon Legislature have released a spending proposal that includes cuts to state programs. The proposal issued Thursday outlines how lawmakers might bridge an expected budget gap.

President-elect Donald Trump kicked off his inaugural festivities on Thursday evening with a concert at the Lincoln Memorial, promising to unify the country but also reflecting on his unlikely election.

"This journey began 18 months ago. I had something to do with it, but you had much more to do with it than I did," Trump said. "I'm the messenger. I'm just the messenger."

The attorney for the leader of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation is facing three charges in connection with a dramatic incident that played out as his client was acquitted last fall.

Marcus Mumford was tased by U.S. Marshals on Oct. 27, just after he learned his client, Ammon Bundy, and six others were found not guilty of conspiring to occupy the Oregon wildlife refuge.
