WHAT TO KNOW:
- Oregon kids whose parents sign non-medical vaccine exemptions will still be allowed to attend school. But if there was a measles outbreak on campus while they were present, they will be required to stay home for 21 days.
- Is this weekend’s storm is going to be a “break out the kids’ sleds” bad or “stock up on canned goods and not leave the house” bad? A meteorologist says: It depends!
- Oregon’s legal cannabis market is generating huge revenues—but none of it is going to regulation.
- A new study of eight states—including Oregon—that raised taxes on millionaires found few negative impacts from those tax hikes.
- A county watchdog panel has cleared Commissioner Chloe Eudaly of any wrongdoing related to her unusual get-out-the-vote effort before the November 2018 general election.
- U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley has sharp words for a decision to repeal Obama-era regulations on payday loan companies: “Let’s call it for what it is: a payday predator protection plan.”
- The lineup for this year’s Soul’d Out Festival is here. It may not be as zeitgeist-y as pervious years, but it does offer a solid mix of national and local legends, as well as buzzy wild cards.
WHERE TO DRINK:
- West fits the character of the Nob Hill neighborhood. It’s got all the signatures of a Portland business circa 2019: leafy green plants, pale mint-colored bar tiles and a plaster wall-art installation evoking a spa.
