Officials: Truck intentionally runs over campers, killing 1

Tue, 30 May 2017 02:07:21 UT

Campers were upset early Saturday because a pickup was doing doughnuts on a gravel bar at the Donkey Creek Campground. A statement released late Monday from the Quinault Nation said the victims were tribal members and that witnesses said the driver was screaming racial slurs when he ran over the two young men. Undersheriff David Pimentel told The Associated Press that investigators interviewed all the witnesses on the gravel bar, and none mentioned racial slurs.

The Latest: Video shows racist rant day before train attack

Tue, 30 May 2017 01:06:36 UT

Cellphone video shows the suspect in the deadly stabbings of two men who intervened in an anti-Muslim rant against two young women on a Portland train going on a racist tirade a day earlier. Police Sgt. Pete Simpson confirmed Monday that video from a passenger posted by TV station KOIN shows Jeremy Joseph Christian, who's accused of murder and other counts in Friday's attack. Simpson says police also are investigating an incident that day involving Christian and a black woman on the train but didn't immediately respond to emails seeking additional details. The mayor of Portland, Oregon, is calling on the federal government and organizers to cancel a "Trump Free Speech Rally" and other events next weekend after the fatal stabbing of two people who confronted a man hurling racial slurs at two young women on a train. The mother of one of the girls who was the target of a hate-filled rant against Muslims on a Portland train says she's overwhelmed with gratitude and sadness for the strangers who were stabbed to death when they came to her daughter's defense. Christian was arrested on suspicion of aggravated murder, intimidation and being a felon in possession of a handgun.

Portland mayor aims to nix free-speech rally, fears 'hatred'

Tue, 30 May 2017 00:51:29 UT

The mayor of Portland, Oregon, on Monday urged U.S. officials and organizers to cancel a "Trump Free Speech Rally" and other similar events, saying they are inappropriate and could be dangerous after two men were stabbed to death on a train as they tried to help a pair of young women targeted by an anti-Muslim tirade. A Facebook page for the event says there would be speakers and live music in "one of the most liberal areas on the West Coast." "[...] we turned around while they were fighting, and he just started stabbing people, and it was just blood everywhere, and we just started running for our lives," Mangum said. A day before the attack, cellphone video confirmed by police Sgt. Pete Simpson shows Christian using expletives as he rants about Muslims, Christians and Jews on a train. At one point, he threatens to stab the driver of the train Thursday, according to video from a passenger posted by TV station KOIN. Simpson says police also are investigating an incident that day involving Christian and a black woman on the train, but he didn't immediately respond to emails seeking additional details. Christian served prison time after holding up employees at a convenience store with a gun in 2002, court records show.

Gaviglio gets first win as Mariners beat Rockies, 6-5

Mon, 29 May 2017 23:42:06 UT

DENVER (AP) — Sam Gaviglio's experience in the minor leagues helped him get his first win in the majors. Gaviglio pitched into the sixth inning to get his first career victory, and the Seattle Mariners used six relievers to beat the Colorado Rockies 6-5 on Monday. The rookie allowed five runs on six hits and left after two singles to lead off the bottom of the sixth inning. Gaviglio also got his first major league hit, a single to lead off the third, and scored the game's first run. Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story hit solo homers and Gerardo Parra got two hits and two RBIs for Colorado. The Mariners gave Gaviglio a 6-2 lead with three runs in the third on just one hit — Gaviglio's single up the middle — and three more in the fifth on three walks, three singles and a two-run double by Seager off Chatwood (4-7). RHP Felix Hernandez (right shoulder inflammation) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday. Mariners: LHP Ariel Miranda (4-2, 4.22 ERA) has allowed only four earned runs over his last three starts.

Refugee from Iraq becomes US citizen

Mon, 29 May 2017 14:38:21 UT

In the auditorium, he took his seat a few rows from the front and listened intently as officials talked of the honor and privilege of U.S. citizenship. The Herald has been following Jihad's story for several years, starting in January 2014 when the community came together to raise money to buy him a new prosthetic leg. Jihad had an electrical supply store; Hamza was a bank manager. The war slowed Jihad's business for a time, but things eventually picked back up and the young father opened more stores and expanded his inventory. In Iraq's wartime landscape, armed groups began kidnapping businessmen for ransom. In April 2005, Jihad was snatched while heading home from one of his stores. Hamza was able to escape with the couple's two daughters, thanks to help from neighbors. The family entered the U.S. as refugees, settling in Richland with help from the local office of World Relief. Jihad tackled lingering injuries from the attack, undergoing multiple surgeries to remove bullets and shrapnel and repair damage. Tom Roach, a Pasco immigration attorney who took on Jihad and Hamza as clients pro bono, said the long time frame was unusual — citizenship cases typically take three to four months. While the couple waited, Jihad lost his Supplemental Security Income benefits. Despite his injuries and illness, Jihad has pushed himself to work, holding jobs at places from 7-Eleven to Apollo Mechanical. A while back, he moved to the Seattle area, renting a small apartment and driving hours upon hours each day for Uber and Lyft, sending money back home to his family. In February, the Herald wrote about his life there — about the pile of blankets he used as a bed, about his long days and nights on the road, about how he missed his girls. While a USCIS spokeswoman said the agency can't comment on individual cases for privacy reasons, Gairson said Jihad's request for a name change and an interpreter error were the ro

Washington marathoner endures chemo, keeps running

Mon, 29 May 2017 14:31:19 UT

(AP) — Beaming, with her hands in the air and a bright green balloon tied to her back, Alexis Erickson crossed the Capital City Marathon's finish line. For the first time since her breast cancer diagnosis last summer, Erickson, an Olympia native, ran a race. In May, she paced the marathoners aiming to finish near three hours, 45 minutes. Running propelled her through five months of cancer treatment. Molly Ivanovich, a regular running partner of Erickson's, who paced part of the race with her, said Erickson always kept a smile, even during treatment. Just two weeks removed from winning the Trials Legacy Marathon in Olympia in July, Erickson got a phone call. Erickson was making her kids lunch when the phone rang. [...] I'd say she had a very positive attitude from the get-go. Alexis Erickson took her kids to the birthday party and tried to act as though everything was normal. Like kind of underwater, trying to be normal and talk to people, but not really sure what's going to happen or when you're going to tell people. Erickson was diagnosed Aug. 4 with an invasive ductal carcinoma, the most common form of breast cancer, but she didn't share the news right away. The two women met as students at Capital High School and reconnected several years ago when training for separate marathons. Erickson approached her five-month treatment plan like a marathon. Each chemo was a mile-and-a-half, and she'd visualize where that was on the course in Olympia, and how close she was to the finish line. "Running keeps her grounded, keeps her mentally in check and keeps her fighting," Justin Erickson said. Erickson felt low on oxygen and energy, and had to stop and walk. On Jan. 23, Erickson walked out of chemo for the final time at Providence to a group of girlfriends holding a banner that read, "Finish line." Justin Erickson said his wife's journey has brought strength to their relationship, and has helped emphasize w

WINDSOR, Ontario (AP) — Aaron Luchuk broke a tie 5:07 into the third period and the Windsor Spitfires beat the Erie Otters 4-3 on Sunday night to win the Memorial Cup.
