Bill Poehler Salem Statesman Journal Published 9:52 PM EDT Oct 26, 2018 A few years ago, an Alaska Airlines plane bound for Portland International Airport was forced to reroute due to a storm in Portland and landed at Salem Municipal Airport. It highlighted a need. In the Willamette Valley between Portland and Eugene, the only airport with a runway long enough to accommodate larger aircraft is Salem. For five decades, the Aurora State Airport has been targeted for expansion of its runway to accommodate larger aircraft, and the Oregon Department of Aviation has applied for a $37 million grant with that expansion in mind.

Mayoral candidate Gery Chico implored the City Council on Monday to cancel a 1995 agreement that has allowed the Gary/Chicago International Airport to use $24 million from Chicago to improve an airport that is now being used to deport illegal immigrants. “The [Welcoming City] law today says we don’t use our money and we don’t use our people to enable ICE to deport people for non-felony contact.

Written by Ron Devlin Bern Township, PA — The last remnant of the World War II POW camp at the former Reading Army Airfield is likely to be demolished to make way for Berks Park 183, a proposed industrial park, officials said.

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) -- With Wilmington cut off from the rest of North Carolina by still-rising floodwaters from Florence, officials plan to airlift food and water to a city of nearly 120,000 people as rescuers elsewhere pull inland residents from homes threatened by swollen rivers. The spreading disaster claimed additional lives Sunday, with at least 17 people confirmed dead, and the nation's top emergency official said other states were in the path this week.
