program date: 
Thu, 12/05/2013
TriMet is going to vote next Wednesday on whether to increase transfer times for one-way tickets to 2.5 hours, up from 2 hours, to better accomodate round trips. This would also clarify their official stance on one-way tickets, which is that round trips are not encouraged but rather an unintended benefit of making a shorter trip. Sam Bouman spoke with Vivian Satterfield of OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon for more on the Rider's Union and the proposed transfer increase.

program date: 
Mon, 12/02/2013
Sentencing in the Mohamed Mohamud has been postponed once again.

Earlier postponements had been sealed by Judge King and are thought to have been initiated by the public defenders' filings regarding exculpatory evidence.

This postponement was apparently initiated by a memo filed by the prosecution regarding the use of inculpatory evidence stemming from an untested amendment to the Foreign Intelligence Surveilence Act .

KBOO's Joe Meyer spoke with law professor Tung Yin of Lewis and Clark University for details.

Tar Sands Megaload Blockade at Port of Umatilla, Oregon on 12-02-2013 from KBOO PM News
Climate activists blocked a controversial shipment last night, forcing contractors to reschedule the Megaload’s departure from the Port of Umatilla in Oregon.
The equipment, a nine-hundred thousand pound water purifier twenty-two feet wide, eighteen feet tall and three-hundred and seventy-six feet in length was met by a diverse group of regional activists.
This week’s protest was larger than a similar protest last week as news of the shipment has spread throughout the region.

KBOO reporter Ross Freeman Levin spoke with Michael Gaskill from the group Rising Tide, who was at the protest.
