  • University of Oregon football coach Willie Taggart announced earlier this week that he’s taking the head coach job at Florida State. Taggart has been with the Ducks for less than a year and the timing of his departure has made a lot of people unhappy. Tyson Alger, Ducks reporter for The Oregonian/OregonLive.com gives us the scoop on what this move means.
  • The recently opened Mountain View Champions Park in Aloha was designed with disabled park-goers in mind. The park is home to Oregon’s first outdoor field for disabled athletes and play structures that accommodate wheelchairs. Tyler Jones, whose 8-year-old son has cerebral palsy, lives near the park and joins us.
