Leaving Reality

Lisa Britton/For the Baker City Herald K-Lee Hickman, left, and Marie Gazley add finishing touches to their abstract works during an art class at Baker High School.

Baker High School Students Experiment With Abstract Art

K-Lee Hickman likes drawing cartoons, and the sketches she pulls from her backpack are much more abstract than realistic.

However, give her an assignment to create an abstract piece of art and it shakes her creativity.

BURNS — The last four armed occupiers of a national wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon said they would turn themselves in Thursday morning after law officers surrounded them in a tense standoff.

The development came as Cliven Bundy — who led a Nevada standoff with federal officers in 2014 and who is also the father of the jailed leader of the Oregon standoff — was arrested in Portland.

The four occupiers yelled at officers to back off and prayed with supporters over an open phone line as the standoff played out on the Internet Wednesday night via a phone line being livestreamed by an acquaintance of occupier David Fry.
