Hospital program helps protect newborns

For the Baker City Herald

Newborn Grayson Scott didn’t make a sound as his dad snugged a dark purple hat on his head — he simply yawned, and fell asleep snuggled in the arms of his mom.

Grayson’s parents, Allie and Zeb Scott, received the purple hat on Friday as part of the “CLICK for Babies” campaign at Saint Alphonsus Medical Center-Baker City that raises awareness about the “Period of PURPLE Crying.”

PURPLE is an educational program offered in hospitals that explains normal crying patterns in infants, how to cope with a baby that can’t be soothed, and the importance of never shaking a baby.

Police are continuing to search for a man who eluded an officer in a Monday morning chase and is suspected of impersonating a police officer by using flashing blue lights on his white pickup truck to pull cars over at night.

Police Chief Wyn Lohner has asked Baker City residents and area agencies for help in locating Timothy P. Keefe, 52, of 2018 Eighth St. Lohner said Keefe moved to Baker City recently from Ontario.

Officers followed up on leads and searched the Atwood Road area at the northeast corner of Baker City Monday afternoon without success.

“We had quite an extensive afternoon of searching Monday in high probability areas and are continuing today,” Lohner said Tuesday.

The chief advises anyone with information about Keefe to use caution and to call 9-1-1 if they see him.
