While many cities in the U.S. are finally coming to the realization that walkability is a necessity in city planning, Vancouver, Washington is actually doing something about it.

A non-profit group in the city invited Mark Fenton, the host of the PBS series "America's Walking” and walkability expert, to speak to a sold-out crowd last night.

He’s also headed out around the city to see just how pedestrian-friendly the city is.

KBOO’s Crystal Leighty spoke with Mark Fenton earlier today:

Interview with local FBI about Hammerfest

Evening News

Thu, 10/04/2007

The Hammerskin Nation, a neo-Nazi skinhead organization, aims to attract hundreds of hardcore racists to the group's twentieth-anniversary celebration, to be held from today until Sunday somewhere in the greater Portland area. The group has not publicized the location of the event.

The Hammerskins, began life in 1987 as the Confederate Hammerskins.  The group was founded in Dallas, TX gang specializing in violence against Jewish people and people of color, sexual minorities, as well as activists.

The Hammerskin Nation--a masthead for Hammerskin racist skinhead crews--has since gone national, and later international, with their bigoted agenda.

The Hammerskin Nation event in Oregon was planned in conjunction with Volksfront, a Portland-led white supremacist group with links to Kenneth Mieske and Kyle Brewster, two of the killers of Ethiopian immigrant Mulugeta Seraw in a 1988 racially charged crime.

Again, we’re speaking about the Hammerskin Nation skinhead gathering taking place in Portland today through Sunday.

I also spoke today with Mike Sweeney, with the Portland office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, about the Hammerskin nation:

The Sneak and Peek Provision of the USA Patriot act has been declared unconstitutional by a Federal judge.  Eoin (Owen) Bastable has more:
 
Yesterday afternoon, an Oregon Federal District court Judge ruled in favor of the family of Brandon Mayfield and his family, in their case against the U-S government.  
Portland attorney brandon mayfield sought the ruling after he was mistakenly linked by the FBI to the Madrid Train Bombings in 2004.
This is Brandon Mayfield, speaking just moments after the family learned the news of this ruling:
<actuality :20>
After arresting and imprisoning Mayfield three years ago, the government was forced by Court order to apologize to Mayfield and his family for the surveillance of their home and harassment of family members.
Mayfield argued that secret searches of his house and office under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Violated his  Fourth Amendment Rights.

Judge Ann Aiken agreed with Mayfield and was very critical  of several provisions of the USA Patriot act.  
She ruled that two provisions of the act are unconstitutional because they allow search warrants to be issued without probable cause.
