Portland Police Chief Mike Marshman says Portland police will “continue to stand up against hate, evil and misinformation.”

Portland Police Chief Mike Marshman has made an effort to reach out to the city’s Latinos as pressure intensifies on immigrants. 

Shortly after the election of President Donald Trump, who promised tough policy on immigration, Marshman sent out a letter to Latino leaders. 

“We remain committed to helping keep you safe,” the police chief wrote. “With the election over and the fear of changes that are to come, we, the Portland Police Bureau, recognize that these feelings are real and uncertainty is spreading among members of the community.”

Communication and joy

NEWBERG — Aboard a U.S. Navy ship during World War II, Claude Arrington received a regular ration of cigarettes. But the slim sailor didn’t smoke. Instead, he sold the packs, sending the profit to his wife, Yvette. 

“We bought furniture for our first house with that,” Yvette says, smiling at her sweetheart more than seven decades later. 

A common faith, thinking as a team, being flexible and arguing candidly but respectfully are among the keys for this pair, named Oregon’s longest married couple after a search by Worldwide Marriage Encounter.
