There is some positive news - in the search for a University of Oregon professor. He went for a day hike on Sunday, and never returned. Today, search crews found footprints in the Cougar Reservoir area, and another hiker said he saw the man on Sunday. The weather has been cooperating, and there are no steep cliffs around that trail - so, everyone is hoping for the best. We'll update the search at 5.

This is also the first day that Gresham police officers will be riding the MAX trains. After a number of fights and other incidents near the MAX line, Gresham's mayor decided to dedicate officers to patrolling platforms and trains. You'll see how that program will work.

We will also follow up yesterday's election. Measure 50 - the tobacco tax - failed.. and Measure 49 - which modifies Measure 37 -- passed. We'll look at how the results will impact the future of children's health - and land use issues.

Tonight is also the home opener - for the Trail Blazers. Their first game - is against New Orleans, and Joe Becker will have a live report from the Rose Garden.

Have a great day!
