Just before 5am a 19yo driver crashed on SW Durham/72nd, flipping upside down and narrowly missing a gas line. He left the scene, but was found nearby & cited for DUII. The underage man's blood alcohol content was .17 and he's lucky he wasn't seriously hurt.

PLEASE DRIVE SOBER!

Deputies Arrest Tigard/Aloha FedEx Driver for Trying to Sexually Assault a Child:

Earlier today, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report of an attempted sexual assault of a child in Aloha, part of the Enhanced Sheriff’s Patrol District (ESPD).

A parent told deputies that a 9-year-old girl had been playing outside her home in the 4000 block of SW 160th Ave. The child said a FedEx driver made a delivery at a neighboring home and then offered her candy. The driver then tried to sexually assault the girl, who was able to get away and tell her parent what happened. She was also able to provide a description of the suspect.

Deputies went to the home to speak with the parent and child while other deputies searched the area for the FedEx truck. Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit also assisted with the investigation. While looking for the suspect, deputies contacted FedEx which immediately provided its full help to find the involved driver.

Deputies found the FedEx truck and driver in the 18300 block of SW Shaw St. The driver was identified as 24-year-old Alejandro Negrete of Portland.

Mr. Negrete was arrested for attempted sexual abuse in the first degree and attempted so**my in the first degree. He was lodged at the Washington County Jail where his bail was set at $20,000.

Deputies learned there is at least one other person who Mr. Negrete sexually assaulted, however that incident did not occur while Mr. Negrete was delivering for FedEx.

Mr. Negrete’s regular FedEx routes covered the Aloha and Tigard areas, on all seven days of the week. Detectives are concerned there may be more victims and are asking anyone with additional information to call the Sheriff’s Office at 503-846-2700.

The Sheriff’s Office wishes to thank FedEx for their immediate and full cooperation, which was crucial in helping deputies locating Mr. Negrete quickly.

Tigard PD Detectives seek tips in Stabbing:

Tigard Police Detectives are asking for your help identifying suspects involved in a stabbing.

On Friday, July 2nd around 5:30 p.m. two suspects challenged a 17-year-old to a fight outside the Washington Square Mall. The 17-year-old agreed, and in the course of the fight, he was stabbed by one of the suspects. He was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening and has since been released.

Investigators believe this was a targeted attack and there is no specific threat to the general public.

The suspects, in this case, are described as two Hispanic men, in their late teens or early 20’s who were both wearing red hats and black shoes. One of the suspects is described as 5’7” or 5’8”, who was wearing jeans and a black shirt, while the other, who was wearing black pants and a black hoodie, is described as having bushy eyebrows.

If you recognize either of them or have any information about this case that can help, please contact Det. Kary Gregson (503-718-2529 or [email protected]) or Det. Gabe Stone (503-718-2665 or [email protected]). You can remain anonymous.

It's been more than four years since the county last opened the waitlist for Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8). The waitlist will open on July 26, 2021, and close on August 4, 2021. On August 6, HAWC will perform a waitlist lottery to add 2,000 applicants to the waitlist.

The Housing Authority of Washington County (HAWC) will begin accepting applications for its Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program on July 26, 2021. The waitlist will close on August 4, 2021. On August 6, HAWC will perform a waitlist lottery to add 2,000 applicants to the waitlist. The waitlist lottery is a process to randomly select applications that were received during the waitlist opening. This means that any application received prior to closing on August 4, 2021, will have an equal chance of being added to the waitlist. The date and time of application will not impact the chances of being added to the waitlist.

HAWC will ONLY accept online applications. The website to submit an application is: https://portal.wchousingauthority.org/. Only one application per household will be accepted. Applications will be de-duplicated prior to waitlist selection. Note that eligibility factors, such as income and family composition, will be reviewed once a family has been selected from the waitlist.

The application will be available in multiple languages. Persons needing translation assistance or other accommodations should contact HAWC to request assistance. For applicants unable to submit an online application, HAWC will provide staff to assist over the phone. Once the waitlist opens, applicants may call HAWC and ask for assistance completing their application.

HAWC will provide flyers and written FAQs to community groups throughout the County. HAWC would be happy to provide training for your staff and volunteers prior to the application window. We want to ensure that your staff is equipped to assist clients in understanding the application process.

Tualatin Valley Firefighters Deploy to Florida to Provide Peer Support to Rescue Workers

In response to the recent building collapse in Surfside, Florida, the International Association of Firefighters requested the services of Tualatin Valley Firefighters’ Peer Support Team.

Firefighters Jeff Campbell, Brandon Henry, and Kyle Leonard were deployed for six days to provide peer support counseling to urban search and rescue workers, firefighters, and their families who were affected by the Champlain Towers South condominium collapse.

The building collapse was a tragic event requiring a nationwide response. Fire departments across the Miami region and urban search and rescue workers from around the United States were deployed to the scene to search for victims. Peer Support Team Lead Jeff Campbell said, “Our primary role was to assist Miami Dade firefighters and their families work through and process mental health issues related to the building collapse.”

In the past few years, there has been increased awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder and job-related mental health illness in fire and emergency services. It is estimated that 20 percent of firefighters and emergency responders will suffer some form of job-related mental illness or PTSD during the life of their careers.

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and the Tualatin Valley Firefighters Union partnered in 2018 to create a Peer Support Team. More than 60 people were trained in a two-day event from various workgroups from within the agency. Through ongoing training and awareness, Peer Support Team members are available 24 hours a day to help someone in need, debrief crews following a difficult call, and assist fire departments in the region.

I came across an unexpected and very nice public installation celebrating some people important to the history of a small town next to Portland. The two installations are about 200 feet apart along a walking and biking path just north of Main Street in Tigard, Oregon. The first I approached is the one for Evangelina "Vangie" Sanchez, a Latino community advocate and promoter of meeting the needs of migrant children. The second is for John and Annie Cash, a Black Pioneer couple who remained in Oregon despite its Black exclusion laws (the last one was not repealed until 1926). I appreciate seeing any public entity going deeper into the history of Oregon, especially the hidden history. Doing so in such a beautiful way deserves commendation. https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10225692491159799&set=pcb.10225692517640461

I have a few goals this year and I am hoping the lovely Tigard community can help me accomplish them. 1. Learn ALS (my boyfriend and I would like to learn together) 2. Learn piano ( I have a full size keyboard at home) I learn best with hands on. Anyone teaching these specifically for adults?
Love this opinion in the "Times" today! I share your views Paul Hoffman! Our tax dollars need to be spent MUCH MORE WISELY!
Is there a list somewhere of restaurants/bars open for outdoor dining?
This sweet baby girl needs a forever home
I need someone to ride a bike with. Am new to town. Any trails
Sorry if this is not the right place, but does anyone know where the best place in tigard is to get a kitten spayed? I don't have a whole lot of money at this moment, so I am worried for the cost a bit but this is something that we need to do. Please and thanks you!
I am looking to put together a gift basket for my company employee's (5 of us) and fill it with stuff from local Tigard business whether that be giftcards or actual items. EDIT: Anyone making like DIY gingerbread house kits? I am already looking at getting gift cards for Versus Board Games. Only a few of us drink so stuff that is non-alcoholic and family friendly would be great! Tigard Businesses Supporting Each other.
