View Comments A review by the Pamplin/EO Capital Bureau shows where winners bought their tickets and how they chose numbers. In the past five years, 24 tickets have won the Oregon's Game Megabucks grand prize. In some cases, winners had to share the $1 million or greater grand prize. People who bought tickets in Jackson County had the best luck, according to a review by the Pamplin/EO Capital Bureau of addresses where winning tickets were sold in the past five years. Quick Pick tickets – in which numbers are randomly generated by a computer at the store - were more likely to win than when players selected their own numbers. Only five out of 42 winners in the past five years had manually-selected numbers. Three were unknown, and the other 37 were Quick Pick tickets.

Updated 2:21 am, Saturday, April 7, 2018 BEND, Ore. (AP) — New parents are often in awe over their first child, and that is certainly true for Andrew and Courtney Reeves. The Bend couple marvels at how much their son, Jon, looks like his father. They are amazed at how well he behaves on trips and how he sleeps through most nights. They have already taken their 5-month-old baby on family vacations to Utah and Hawaii. But Jon's presence is more a miracle than his good behavior. He was born through surrogacy, an arrangement in which a woman agrees to become pregnant and gives birth to a child for a couple, who will be the child's parents. The surrogate carries an embryo created in a laboratory using an egg and sperm from the child's parents.

Last Updated May 29, 2014 6:55 PM EDT Students as young as sixth grade in an Oregon school district will soon be able to get condoms from some teachers.The Gervais School District, which is located about 30 miles south of Portland, has moved forward with a new plan to allow specific teachers to distribute condoms to students who ask for one. The move comes after an Oregon Health & Science University study a year ago found that 7 percent of Gervais High School's female students had become pregnant. "If they wanted a condom, they would have to meet with a teacher -- a designated teacher, the sex ed teacher, or some of our counselors and maybe some administrators. So there would be designated people for students to have a conversation with and then a condom would be distributed at that time," Gervais School District Superintendent Rick Hensel told CBS News.The policy is expected to kick in next fall.Hensel said this school year alone, nine girls became pregnant, or 5 percent of … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Oregon school district OKs teachers giving condoms to sixth graders
In a study of more than 5,000 children, Australian researchers said they found that cesarean section delivery was not linked with a higher risk of health problems in childhood. "This study suggests that some of the previously reported associations between birth by cesarean delivery and adverse childhood health outcomes may be explained by influences other than mode of birth," said lead researcher Elizabeth Westrupp, a research fellow in the School of Nursing at La Trobe University in Melbourne. The researchers concluded that cesarean delivery was associated with a mix of positive and negative outcomes through early childhood, and few were consistent. For example, the association between cesarean delivery and childhood obesity might actually be explained by the mother's obesity, Westrupp said. "These findings should be reassuring to women and their doctors," she added. The report was published online Oct. 12 in the journal Pediatrics. For the study, Westrupp and her colleagues used data … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Study: Cesarean delivery won’t harm children’s health
Many people having surgery for severe obesity also have mental health conditions, particularly depression and binge-eating disorder, a new review finds. The analysis of 68 studies found that almost one-quarter of obesity surgery candidates had a mood-related disorder, usually depression. Another 17 percent had binge-eating disorder, researchers report Jan. 12 in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Obesity surgery, known medically as bariatric surgery, can be an option for people who are severely overweight -- typically 100 pounds or more. And while doctors have known that patients often have mental health symptoms as well, it has not been clear just how common that is, said study author Dr. Aaron Dawes. "What was striking to us is that depression and binge-eating disorder were both more than twice as common as they are in the general U.S. population," said Dawes, a general surgery resident at the University of California, Los Angeles. The good news was that the review … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Many bariatric surgery patients face mental health issues
