| Anti-marijuana group to hold private summit in Clackamas County|
Billed as the 2014 Oregon Summit, the event, now in its fifth year, is private. In previous years, organizer Shirley Morgan, of the Mt. Hood Coalition Against Drug Crime, has refused to allow The Oregonian to cover the event. She did not respond to an emailed request from The Oregonian Tuesday.

| Sex offenders in Oregon: Portland area has most offenders, but smaller counties have high concentra|
A county-by-county breakdown covers the state's more than 20,000 registered sex offenders -- except those who have reported that they moved out of state or who are in prison
Multnomah County leads the state with the highest number of registered sex offenders living within its borders, but some counties with smaller populations have higher concentrations, new figures obtained by The Oregonian show.
The top five counties are: Multnomah County with 3,589 sex offenders as of mid-September, followed by Marion County with 2,010, Lane County with 1,769, Washington County with 1,772 and Clackamas County with 1,367.
Wheeler County reported just one registered sex offender.
Jackson County, along the Northern California border, ranked sixth with 1,275.
The numbers are from Oregon State Police, who oversee the state's sex offender registry. The county breakdown covers the state's more than 20,000 registered sex offenders -- except those who have reported that they moved out of state or who are in prison.
Jackson County Sheriff Steve Bohn says offenders have moved into his county from California. California, unlike Oregon, restricts where sex offenders can live, such as certain distance from schools and parks.
'One reason they move up to Oregon is because the laws are not as strict as they are in California,' Bohn said.
It's a common theme: Convicted sex offenders can easily move from state to state, and duck registration laws that differ between state borders, to avoid detection.
'An offender can so easily, quietly slip away and move to another jurisdiction without anyone knowing about them,'' said Medford Police Officer Tom Sweeney. He's made it a side project of his and five other patrol officers to check whether offenders are living where they're supposed to.
All counties on Oregon's southern border and along the coast have higher per capita counts of registered sex offenders than Multnomah County, where the rate is 4.95 sex offenders per 1,000 population, according to an analysis by The Oregonian.
Harney County led the state with 10.29 sex offenders per 1,000 population followed by Malheur County, with 9.97 sex offenders per capita.
Sex offenders have moved into Harney County from out of state and from other bigger cities in Oregon, such as Bend and Salem and Portland, because it's less expensive to live there and social services may be easier to access, said Harney County Sheriff Dave Glerup.
'We have a lot of registered sex offenders who move here from somewhere else,'' Glerup said.
Coming Tuesday online and Wednesday in the newspaper, The Oregonian presents an in-depth look at the gaps in oversight that have allowed sex offenders to travel from state to state and continue their crimes without telling authorities where they're living.
