Timberline opens for the ski season! That's what it said on the newswire this morning. The only problem, it's not true. We headed up the big hill to see for ourselves and discovered a very different story. Timberline wanted to open, tried to open, but it just didn't work out. Too much ice on the Palmer snowfield. Meadows is scrambling to open too. Our Joe Michaels is up there and he'll be able to give us a much better idea of what is really happening tonight at five.
Another story that took some digging started with a tip from a viewer. The caller noticed that some of Portland's homeless are moving into residential neighborhoods and setting up makeshift camps. Dave Northfield checked it out yesterday and couldn't find anyone in the neighborhood mentioned. Then today on his way to work he decided to take a few minutes and cruise through some other close in neighborhoods. Bingo. He'll have that story tonight at six.
There are many important stories today. This is not one of them but I couldn't resist including it in this little bog. Neil Diamond finally reveals whom he was singing about in Sweet Caroline. Tune in tonight and you'll have something for the water cooler tomorrow!
As always, thanks for watching.
