OSP might close only forensic lab in Eastern Oregon


From The (La Grande) Observer: 

The future of the Eastern Oregon crime lab is up in the air.

Employees at the Oregon State Police’s Pendleton crime lab were told Wednesday that the OSP is considering all options for its forensic labs — including closing the Pendleton location.

Keith Kerr, director of the Pendleton lab, said the announcement came this week but that no decision has been made.

“The OSP are looking at the options for what to do with our laboratory due to budgetary issues,” he said. “They’ve been seeking input from our partner agencies.”

The Department of Administrative Services earlier this year issued a Request for Information regarding construction of a new lab to be sited in Pendleton. According to the DAS, there has not been any movement on that front.

“There’s nothing confirmed at this point,” said Lt. Gregg Hastings, OSP public information officer. “They are still trying to decide where to relocate.”

Closure of the Pendleton lab without construction of a new one would leave Eastern Oregon without a crime lab. An Ontario lab closed several years ago. Other state crime labs are located in Bend, Central Point, Clackamas and Springfield.

 

 

Thursday Art Night planned


Baker Art Guild will present the film “Gregory Crewdson - Brief Encounters” for Thursday Art Night on July 31 at the Eltrym Theatre, 1809 Second St. The evening begins with storytelling at 6:30 p.m. The theme is “Brushes with Celebrity.” The film start at 7 p.m. Tickets are $6 adults, $4 students and proceeds benefit the Crossroads Scholarship Fund.

About the film:

Acclaimed photographer Gregory Crewdson doesn’t just “take” his images, he creates them, through elaborate days and weeks of invention, design, and set-up. The epic production of these movie-like images is both intensely personal and highly public: they begin in Crewdson’s deepest desires and memories, but come to life on streets and soundstages in the hills towns of Western Massachusetts. In his decade-long project “Beneath the Roses” he uses light, color and character to conjure arresting images, managing a crew of 60 amidst seemingly countless logistical and creative obstacles.

Filmed over a decade, beginning in 2000, Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters provides an unparalleled view of the moment of creation of his images. It also reveals the life-story behind the work—through frank reflections on his life and career, including the formative influences of his psychologist father and his childhood fascination with the work of Diane Arbus. Childhood fears and ideals, adult anxieties and desires, the influences of pop-culture all combine to form who buy cialis we are, and for Crewdson, motivate his work.

There is no specific backstory, no before-and-after to Gregory Crewdson’s images, simply the moment that lends itself to mystery and intrigue. Hundreds of movie lights combine with the setting sun in a perfect moment of illumination.
