The Portland City Commissioners are giving us a case of whiplash. Just when Erik Sten announced he was siding with the Mayor in favor of renaming Interstate Avenue after Cesar Chavez, there's a new plan. Randy Neeves says now everyone except Mayor Potter wants to rename 4th Avenue near City Hall after Chavez. It could happen today. But you can bet it won't happen quietly. We will bring you the fireworks at five.

Also, did you hear that a hiker has found what is likely the trail guide used by the missing University of Oregon professor? The rescue crew is calling this a recovery effort but do we dare hope for a miracle?

One of our excellent photographers Brian Robertson came by my desk today. Like many of us he is an animal lover and has two large sassy cats of his own. He wanted me to pass on that the Oregon Humane Society is overflowing with felines. They are not accepting anymore. Already there are two and three to a cage. They are even offering a special deal if you are able to adopt more than one. Brian said to keep a lookout tonight in his video for a delicate little boy named Butterball, weighing in at 28 pounds! If you're not into turkey you can still have a Butterball for Thanksgiving!

As always thanks for watching,
