Salem-News.com Newscast for Friday (VIDEO)Salem-News.com Staff
Recorded live Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. in our Downtown, Oregon news studios.
(SALEM, Ore.) - In tonight's news, Police investigate a serious crash on Turner Road that injured a Eugene Woman, in the same set of curves that saw a recent fatal crash. And an Israeli peace activist visits Salem from Jerusalem, to talk about solutions for Mideast peace.
Bonnie King will have the weekend weather forecast, and we'll introduce you to a team of local ghosthunters who are on the trail of some interesting and hard to explain events in some of Oregon's lonelier locations.
The Turner Police Department and the Turner Rural Fire Protection District responded to another one car injury crash in Condon’s Corners which is in the 6100 block of Turner Road SE.
This area is in between the City of Salem the City of Turner. According to Chief Gary Will of the Turner Police Department, the Turner Police receive complaints about drivers in these corners constantly.
The most common complaints are speed, driving over the center line and making u-turns in the curves.
Today’s crash involved a 21-year old Eugene woman who lost control and went off the roadway and flipped upside down, down the 12 feet drop off into the ditch.
This is the same location where a memorial marker is located at where another person has died in a crash in this same location.
Turner police would like to remind everyone that these curves are dangerous and to slow down when going around curves. Fall and winter are coming soon and with it comes slippery roads.
If you have ever been curious about astrology, tarot cards, or the fascinating netherworld where psychics dial in to "the other side", you'll want to attend the Third Psychic Faire in Salem this Saturday.
It happens Saturday from 12:00 to 4:00, at The Tea Party Bookshop in historic downtown Salem.
Let's take a look at weather conditions at this hour…. while our news photographer Jerry Freeman shows us footage of downtown Salem.
The high in Salem today was 81 degrees. Currently, it’s 73 degrees here in downtown Salem, and we’ll have a low tonight of 46. Saturday we can expect patchy fog with a high of 81, and Sunday will top out for the weekend with 86 degrees.
The cooler weather moves right in on Monday with rain likely, and a high of 69. More rain in store for Tuesday with a high of 62, then the rest of the week it looks like mostly clouds, with little rain.
Still, a lot of great weather ahead for the weekend!
CNN and other media groups published a story yesterday about a Camp Lejeune Marine who survived breast cancer. The story shows progress in the mainstream media towards addressing this serious issue affecting hundreds of thousands of Americans.
As we have reported many times in the past, the Camp Lejeune Marine base in North Carolina is heavily contaminated with PCE (tetra-chloroethylene) and TCE (tri-chloroethylene) as well as other cancer causing agents. in recent weeks, practically out of nowhere, the Department of Defense and the Department of the Navy gathered a group of scientists, the National Resource Council, and had them reevaluate the issue.
Their findings were that the contamination can't be linked to the health problems former residents have suffered. A victim of the process told CNN, "That's literally unheard of to have 20 men come from the same place, walking on the same dirt, drinking the same water." If you would like more information on TCE and PCE contamination, please contact us here at Salem-News.com
Americans are raised to believe that Israel is an ally of the United States, and for most of us growing up here, there was no question about it. The peace process has been an education process for many, and Gila Svirsky will be speaking at several special engagements this week. We talked with her today.
For information, contact Gila’s website: GILASVIRSKY.COM
