Kaleb's Law gets legislative sponsor

By Molly Trotter/Ktvl.com

MEDFORD, Ore. -- Lindsey Lahr went to Salem on Wednesday afternoon in hopes to get a bill passed to make pulse ox screenings mandatory for newborn babies.

She succeeded.

She told News 10 this afternoon that Senator Jason Atkinson, R-Salem, will sponsor her bill.

Lahr went to Salem to get a bill passed in honor of her two-year old son Kaleb. Kaleb was born at Three Rivers Hospital in Grant Pass two years ago. Just hours after he was born, his parents noticed that he was breathing fast, so the nurse came in and gave him a pulse ox test. This test showed the Lahr's and the nurse that their son was deprived on oxygen from his neck down. If the parents would have noticed his condition any later, Kaleb probably wouldn't have made it.

Lahr feels that this could have been avoided if Kaleb received a pulse ox screening right after he was born. That is why she went to Salem to try and pass her bill, Pulse Ox Oregon Kaleb's Law, to make it mandatory for all hospitals for give newborns a pulse ox test, so other families can avoid what her family and what Kaleb went through.Kaleb's Law gets legislative sponsor

Should your town impose a 1-year moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries?
ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — One of Oregon's more liberal cities is considering a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries.

The Ashland Daily Tidings newspaper reports that the Oregon Health Authority Medical Marijuana Dispensary Program has already received six dispensary applications for Ashland.

But neighborhood opposition has been increasing and the council will discuss a moratorium on April 1.

People hoping to launch dispensaries in Oregon began submitting applications to the state on March 3 as part of a new medical marijuana regulatory system.

A proposed dispensary called Top Shelf Meds abuts an Ashland neighborhood.

Carol Kim says the dispensary is separated from her home by a hedge. She says it's ironic that state rules bar dispensaries near schools, but her daughters will come home from school and have to live near a dispensary.

YES
My town should definitely impose the moratorium for one year -- no more, no less.
NO
My town should NOT impose the moratorium for any length of time. My town should follow current state laws on medical marijuana dispensaries.
Undecided
I am unsure whether I am in favor of medical marijuana dispensaries in my town, regardless of current state laws.
