If Gov. Kate Brown follows through on a plan to call Oregon’s Legislature into a special session in the coming months, she might wind up giving a tax break to a sliver of the businesses she’s pledged to target. Brown announced April 6 that she wants to convene the Oregon Legislature to give a tax cut to “sole proprietorships,” which had been left out of a 2013 state tax break. The move was presented as a balm for small business owners after the governor decided to sign a bill dismantling tax cuts for a wider swath of Oregon businesses. But an analysis of the legislative concept Brown’s office is circulating among state legislators shows only around 3.4 percent of the state’s sole proprietorships would benefit. According to the analysis, about 9,000 of the state’s 264,000 sole proprietorships would be eligible for the tax relief Brown is proposing. The cut would amount to about $20 million in the current two-year budget cycle and $30 million for the 2019-21 biennium. Those numbers

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kyle Gibson was given the assignment to take the mound for the first home game for the Minnesota Twins, an afternoon that was quite the cold opener to the team's ninth season at Target Field. He didn't mind the 38-degree first-pitch temperature. That's good, because the Twins have a 10-game homestand. Gibson will probably get another turn or two in the frigid air of this early April in the north that just won't thaw . "I'm the warmest guy out there. I'm the only one who's moving every pitch and who's that active, so I enjoy it," said Gibson, who grew up outside of Indianapolis and played at Missouri before being drafted by the Twins.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The pageantry and patriotism accompanying the buildup to the Minnesota Twins' home opener forced a pause for James Paxton in his warmup routine, leaving the Seattle starting pitcher standing alone in left field while a giant flag was unfurled nearby. The bald eagle brought in for a ceremonial flight over the field was the final piece of the pregame pomp, prior to the playing of the national anthem. Well, the big bird didn't want to visit the mound, perhaps wary of Major League Baseball's new rule limiting such trips to keep the pace of play. Instead, it picked out another target at Target Field. And Paxton wound up as the landing spot, sticking its talons into his back. "I guess the eagle knew I was Canadian.

LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hinted he may return to Sweden national team for Russia 2018. The ESPN FC crew are divided on whether Sweden should bring Zlatan Ibrahimovic back into the squad for this summer's World Cup. Zlatan Ibrahimovic marked his first MLS start with the winning goal in LA Galaxy's win over Bastian Schweinsteiger and the Chicago Fire. Zlatan Ibrahimovic speaks exclusively to ESPN about his move to MLS, playing under Jose Mourinho and whether or not he'll play with Sweden at the World Cup. The return of "individualist" Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the Sweden squad for the World Cup could disrupt the dynamic that earned them a place in Russia, goalkeeper Karl-Johan Johnsson has said. Ibrahimovic retired from international football after his country were knocked out of Euro 2016, but since Janne Andersson's squad saw off Italy in a dramatic qualification playoff the LA Galaxy forward has dropped regular hints that he would welcome a return to the international fold. But Johnsson, who is back-up...
