­čî▒WashCo Tackles Possible Child Care Shortage + June Artist Mixes Up

Hi, Beaverton. I’m here with your Wednesday edition of the Beaverton Daily, filled with everything you need to know about what’s happening locally. Read on for the latest news.


First, today’s weather:

Partly sunny and pleasant. High: 75 Low: 48.


Here are the top five stories of today in Beaverton:

  1. An education expert published the findings on the availability of childcare services to the Beaverton Valley Times in a recent opinion column. Katie Riley, who holds a doctorate in education and serves as Washington Kids County President, he said his organization’s research showed the potential for a severe childcare shortage in Washington County that would have have a negative impact on the economy if there wasn’t a great investment made early.
  2. A body found near Hillsboro airport two weeks ago has been identified. Hillsboro PD says the guy was Don Askey, who was reported missing in 2015. Authorities say the body was long dead. (KOIN.com)
  3. A Washington County man faces federal charges for threatening a school in Sherwood last month. The district attorney’s office referred the case to United States Attorney’s Office because Oregon law does not include provisions for prosecuting such threats. The Washington County District Attorney’s Office identified the suspect as Braeden Richard Riess, 26 years old.
  4. Find out what the local PD has combined with the Beaverton Police Registry in the Beaverton Valley Times. Among the incidents to which the officers responded was a home invasion on Southwest 84th Avenue on June 8. Agents say a suspect entered a house through a locked door, then found himself at home, put on your landlord’s clothes, open your mail, and help yourself to a snack.
