    Kenny is not a bad person, yes he made some bad choices and i do not condone him escaping, he has never harmed a single person.

    Do we not consider arson a violent crime? How about stocking and burglarizing businesses.. potentially violent. This creature is an ex con who has been known to video the buildings he sets a blaze.

    NOT only in Klamath Falls, actually. If anyone can be bothered to go to google and enter "county jail escape", they would find that it happens all over the place, with disturbing frequency. Five got out of a county jail in Missouri earlier this month.

Should Oregon change its law requiring attendants to pump gas?

Drivers in New Jersey could soon pump their own gas under a bill being introduced in the Assembly. Under current law residents are not permitted to pump their own gas. New Jersey and Oregon are the only two states that require attendants to pump gas. Should Oregon change its law? Send comments to gobrien@heraldandnews.com
