When Neilon returned to the sideline to make way for Lobendahn’s return, he watched a series of issues arise. The performance from the offensive line was up and down, at times struggling to protect quarterback JT Daniels or provide much aid for the runnin...

Where I've lived most folks have very few firearms

Growing up on a rural island in Washington, My dad owned a .22 hornet/12 gauge barrel change-over, both single shot that I used for fun and shooting at fast flying salt water mallards. He also had a .222 with a sawed off barrel which he used to be probably the best poacher in the county. We ate lots of deer meat. He had an old Model '94 and when he got old he bought a .22 2-shot derringer. And I had a single shot .22 for supplying rabbit meat. Most people around us didn't own but maybe one ...

More than $1.4 billion in tax refunds awaiting claims by taxpayers who didn't file in 2016

Photo by GotCredit via Flickr CC Most of the focus on tax refunds this year has been on how many people are unpleasantly surprised by how small they are. In many (probably most) cases, the relatively small refunds are because people didn't adjust their payroll withholding last year to account for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) changes to income tax rates and earnings brackets. Now we have another refund situation that also can be blamed on filers, or actually on nonfilers. Yes, I'm talk...

Friday Opinion: The bills I wish we were working on this session

Bicycle riders should be included in Oregon’s “Move Over Law.” (Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) There are plenty of important bills down in Salem this session, but as you might have noticed in the list of bills we’re tracking — and despite a supermajority for Democrats — bicycling doesn’t seem like much a priority. (Not that bicycling is a partisan issue, but in general Democrats tend to be more receptive to it than Republicans.) When arguably the biggest bike bill in the mix is one that mer...
