| Rep. Carolyn Tomei, Milwaukie Democrat, won't run for re-election|
Tomei spent much of her time in the Legislature pushing for more controls on the Oregon Lottery, which she blames for addicting thousands of gamblers.
SALEM – Rep. Carolyn Tomei, a
Milwaukie Democrat who pushed – mostly unsuccessfully -- to blunt the Oregon
Lottery's impact on problem gamblers, said she won't run for re-election.
Tomei, who has been in the
Legislature since 2001, joins a growing group of House members who have decided
not to return. Tomei's departure opens a seat that includes parts of Clackamas and Multnomah County.
'I feel really great about
retiring,' said Tomei, who will serve out the remaining 10 months of her term. 'But
when I leave the session, what I remember is what I didn't get done.'
Tomei said she keeps a photo
of a her great-grandson in her office and is looking forward to spending more
time with him.

| Gresham-Barlow school merger; Parkrose levy: East Multnomah County schools|
A possible local levy for Parkrose: Parkrose schools officials may have a tough campaign on their hand.
A recently commissioned survey that will be presented to the Parkrose School Board on Monday shows 46 percent of respondents in the Parkrose School District oppose a possible five-year local levy, 38 percent support one and 16 percent are not sure.

A recently commissioned survey that will be presented to the
Parkrose School Board on Monday shows 46 percent of respondents in the Parkrose
School District oppose a possible five-year local levy, 38 percent support one
and 16 percent are not sure.
The Parkrose School Board commissioned the survey to gauge
community support for a $1-million-a-year levy that could pay for teachers and
other classroom supports, said Ed Grassel, chairman of the board. The possible
levy would cost homeowners 85 cents per $1,000 in assessed value.
The Mid-County Memo has additional details.
Snow days: The
Parkrose School Board approved a resolution Feb. 24 to recover two school days
lost to snow closures in February. School was to have ended on May 30 but will
now end in June. Gresham-Barlow School District officials will consider a
similar move at their April board of education meeting.
princesses: David Douglas and Parkrose high schools both crowned their 2014
Rose Festival princesses this week. Samantha Westmoreland will represent David
Douglas. Chazmyne Brown will represent Parkrose.
District merges schools: The Gresham-Barlow School Board voted Thursday
night to merge Damascus Middle School with Deep Creek Elementary School, making
them one K-8 school. Deep Creek will move to the middle school site beginning
with the 2014-15 school year.
The move is a response to declining enrollment at both
schools and voters' rejection of a $210 million construction bond in November. The
bond would have paid for renovations to turn Deep Creek into a K-8.
Thursday, the board decided the middle school had the
capacity to become a K-8 without extensive repairs.

| Damascus city attorney argues Oregon Legislature cannot force city to allow deannexations|
Attorney Peter Watts is relying on a case from Cornelius from 1957. The judge in the case determined that the state legislature cannot force a city to let a property leave the city limits.
An attorney for Damascus is trying to stop Gov. John Kitzhaber from signing a bill that allows some property owners to leave the city.Peter Watts, who opposed the bill as a private citizen, is now arguing as an attorney employed by the city that the bill may be unconstitutional.Watts is relying on a case from Cornelius from 1957. The judge in the case determined that the state legislature cannot force a city to let a property leave the city limits.Watts said the governor’s office has assigned someone to review the issue.“We certainly hope that at the end of that analysis, the governor will veto the bill,” Watts said, of city officials.About 100 property owners on the edge of Damascus plan to leave the city if Gov. John Kitzhaber signs a bill that would allow the deannexations, according to neighborhood representatives.House Bill 4029 is waiting for Kitzhaber’s approval, after passing the Oregon House and Senate nearly unanimously. The bill allows property owners within a half-mile of another existing city can deannex from Damascus, likely leading to many residents who qualify to annex into nearby Happy Valley.Here is Watts’ letter: I am writing regarding HB 4029 which I have been analyzing, in my capacity as attorney for the city of Damascus. I am concerned, based on the case law I have enclosed, that HB 4029 is unconstitutional. The legislative act struck down in Schmidt v. City of Cornelius, 211 Or. 505, 316 P.2d 511, (1957), is analogous to HB 4029. Schmidt, makes it clear that the decision to withdraw territory from a city cannot be vested solely with an individual. Id at 520. The court writes that “it is obvious that statutes and constitutional provisions which authorize the city council, or other corporate authorities, or the qualified electors of a city, to detach property, are in a class by themselves. Such statutes are in aid of home rule powers of cities, not in derogation of such powers.” Schmidt at 518.As the court writes in Schmidt, “[I]t is of course clear that a change in the boundaries of a city is an exercise of legislative power and amounts to an amendment of the city charter.” Id at 517.Finally, in its ruling that court writes: “We hold that the legislature could not, by an act general in form, effect an amendment to the charter of the city of Cornelius by empowering a private individual at his sole option to initiate a judicial proceeding which upon proof of specified facts would result in mandatory action by the court amending the city charter and excluding plaintiffs' territory from the city. To hold otherwise would be to deprive the city of its admitted power to change its own boundaries by its own procedure, and would in practical effect violate the mandate of Constitution Article I, § 21 which provides that no law shall be passed 'the taking effect of which shall be made to depend upon any authority, except as provided in this Constitution; ***” Id at 523.I did not locate this case until yesterday and, as such, was unable to include in my testimony to the Senate, or alert them of the issues raised, prior to their vote. I wanted to alert you to the case so that you and the governor could consider it, prior to him deciding whether to sign the bill into law. -- Molly Harbarger

| Readers name Portland's best burger: Diner 2014|
Readers pick: And the winner of our Portland's best burger poll is...
When it comes to hamburgers, Americans like a dollop of danger next to their ketchup and mustard. In Las Vegas, you'll find a Heart Attack Grill, which, last year, lost a regular customer and unofficial mascot to an actual heart attack. If you hold up a mirror in Davis, Calif., you'll find a Murder Burger -- after a 2001 sale, the landmark restaurant reversed its name to Redrum.
Here in Oregon, our red-blooded answer to these menacing meat sandwiches is Killer Burger, a growing chain of rock-and-roll burger joints with over-the-top toppings including peanut butter, pickles and bacon (yup, that's all on one burger). Now, after receiving more than 100 of your local burger suggestions, with over 8,000 individual votes, Oregonian readers have named Killer Burger their favorite burger in the Portland area.
Among Killer Burger's dozen outlandish offerings, the most recommended was easily the Barnyard, which tops a 1/3 pound of ground beef with ham, egg, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, grilled onion and a smoky sauce. It comes with fries, and, at $11, it's practically a meal for two. You can find it at one of Killer Burger's six current locations, one each in downtown Portand, Sellwood, Vancouver, Bingen (Wash.), at the Moda Center and at Northeast Portland's Hollywood District original. More outposts are sure to follow.
In the race for second place, Portland's Slow Bar came up short against Gresham's The Local Cow. Other finishers receiving significant votes included the Rock House Grill food cart, Helvetia Tavern, Red Star Tavern, and Stanich's. Readers also cast more than 1,300 write-in votes, including more than 300 for Dick's Kitchen, allowing the Paleo-friendly diner to sneak into the top 10. Speaking of...
Readers pick the top 10 burgers in the Portland area:
1. Killer Burger -- 10182. The Local Cow -- 6403. Slow Bar -- 5644. Rock House Grill -- 4925. Helvetia Tavern -- 4016. Stanich's -- 3407. Dick's Kitchen -- 3188. Red Star Tavern -- 2759. Tilt -- 27110. Foster Burger -- 245
The top results here, plus the outcomes of other upcoming polls, will be rolled up into a Reader Picks section in The Oregonian's 2014 Restaurant Guide. Next week? Battle Brunch.
