Judge asks responses to Obama salmon plan

AP | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

A federal judge has asked critics of the Obama administration's plan for Northwest salmon to file their responses by Oct. 2. The administration will then have two weeks to submit its reply to U.S. District Judge James Redden in Portland.

Redden outlined the schedule in a letter Wednesday.

The state of Oregon and the Nez Perce Tribe are among those fighting the plan.

The administration submitted its plan last week, revealing how it thinks it can run the region's system of hydroelectric dams in the Columbia Basin without pushing protected fish closer to extinction. The plan includes climate-change monitoring and the "last-resort" possibility of removing dams.

Critics say it does little to improve the Bush administration plan the judge has already called inadequate, and worry it could lead to drastic measures such as dam removal.

Stocks rise on upbeat earnings reports

AP | STEPHEN BERNARD | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

Better-than-expected earnings at Intel sent investors pouring back into the market Wednesday, sending stocks higher in morning trading.

Chipmaker Intel Corp.'s report after the market closed Tuesday lifted investor confidence because its sales figures suggest consumers are purchasing computers at a faster rate than anticipated, a potential sign the economy is recovering.

Consumer spending accounts for more than two-thirds of economic activity. Increased spending by consumers is widely seen as a key to an economic recovery.

Just as important as quarterly results, Intel's third-quarter sales prediction was bigger than analysts' forecast, a further indication that the chipmaker believes the personal computer market has bottomed and a recovery is under way.

In another sign the recession is easing, a new report showed industrial companies cut back production again in June, but not nearly as much as they have been in previous months.
