It’s Friday and that means it’s time for our news roundtable, where we take a look at some of the biggest stories of the week with a rotating panel of journalists and other news watchers.

This week our discussion topics include:

  • A potential federal challenge to Oregon’s Coordinated Care Organizations, fundamental to state health care reform
  • The beheading of American journalist James Foley
  • proposal by a Portland city commissioner to impose social and environmental standards on the public investment portfolio
