Former Oregon governor John Kitzhaber's campaign to radically reform health care drew about 200 people to its first meeting in Portland on Sunday.

Portland Police Chief Derrick Foxworth has been accused by city officials of sexual misconduct against a female officer before he became chief. A nine-page legal notice released by the city alleges that Foxworth sent a series of graphic e-mails to Angela Oswalt.

Oswalt, 46, a longtime Police Bureau veteran, claims that she feared for her job unless she succumbed to Foxworth's advances.
