Good afternoon, Portland! Hope you're enjoying the sun, since it appears to be the last we'll be seeing of it for another week or so. Now: THE NEWS


  • Emergency warming shelters will not re-open tonight despite the freezing temperatures in the forecast and the fact that 350 people utilized the shelters last night. Apparently it's now too warm. Go figure. Isabella Garcia has the full update.
  • Vadim Mozyrsky wants a job in politics and he doesn't care who knows it (or, apparently, if he's particularly qualified). After finishing third in a primary for City Council last spring, Mozyrsky is now sizing up a bid for Multnomah County District Attorney despite the fact that he has no experience in criminal law and isn't even a member of the state bar. 

  • Kate Brown is heading to Harvard. The former governor, who left office just a few weeks ago, will spend a week later this spring as visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics at the Kennedy School. Former US Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, whose Clark County-based Congressional seat is now represented by a Democrat, will be a fellow at the institute as well.
