Where did this week go? Time flies when you're having fun, I guess.. and Portland had a lot of fun this week. Disney on Ice started its weekend run last night at the Rose Garden. Halloween was Wednesday. We had the big Hannah Montana concert Tuesday, and the Blazers kicked off the '07-'08 season in San Antonio. I'm guessing there were a lot of late assignments at school this week!

Tonight at 5, we'll update a story that broke last night - about a man who escaped from a work detail at a Utah prison. That was 22 years ago. Police finally tracked him down -- in Salem. You'll hear what he's been doing since his escape, what neighbors said about him, and how police caught up with him.

At 6, Randy Neves is working on a story about the new city law to restrict the sale of spray paint. Commissioner Randy Leonard came up with the idea, to reduce the graffiti and tagging problems around town. Today, Leonard went to a Home Depot in the city limits, to see if the paint department there was complying. It wasn't. Store officials told us they needed more time, but is there more to it? Randy will have the latest.

Look for a developing story - tonight at 11 - centered around a 2 year old Oregon boy who is living with a foster family on the coast. State officials have decided to send the boy to Mexico to live with his grandmother - and extended family there, despite a challenge from the boy's foster family. There are other circumstances involved - including details about that boy's father - that touched off a lot of debate among our viewers. Again, we'll update that, at 11.

Plus, of course - Friday Night Flights! And speaking of football, it's going to be another great weekend at Autzen Stadium. The Ducks play Arizona State, and ESPN has brought it's 'Game Day' show to Eugene - for the second time this season.

Have a wonderful weekend.
