ASTORIA — A new state law that requires grand jury proceedings to be recorded will likely alter how the Clatsop County District Attorney’s Office seeks many felony indictments. The law will take effect in Clatsop County in July after it was signed into law by Gov. Kate Brown last year. While prosecutors typically seek secretive grand jury indictments in felony cases, many have said preliminary hearings, which are open to the public, will become more common.

ASTORIA — Pulled by a winch from a Caterpillar, the hulking frame of the No. 21 Baldwin steam locomotive engine inched its way under a boiler weighing more than 20 tons, perched on four Jenga towers of cribbing inside the quonset hut of the Astoria Railroad Preservation Association. “This will be the first time since 1982 that the frame has been underneath the boiler,” said John Niemann, president of the association and a driving force behind the restoration.
