Here are the top stories today in Beaverton:

  • A Beaverton mother is grateful for the arrival of baby formula from Europe, which came via United States Airforce planes. The U.S. supply of baby formula is suffering a shortage due to supply chain issues caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and a factory shutdown in Michigan following serious bacterial infections, which are linked to two infant deaths. The local mother, who relies on formula to supplement her underweight baby, says the efforts do little to mitigate the fear. (KGW.com)
  • The delivery driver accused of assaulting children in Aloha was sentenced to eight years in prison on May 18. Alejandro Negrete pleaded guilty last week to first-degree sexual abuse, first-degree attempted sodomy and two counts of public indecency for a crime that took place last July. Police say Negrete admitted to abusing other victims, and at least two additional families have come forward with accusations against him. (KATU.com)
