  • The incoming administration has promised to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. We talk to Dr. John Hunter, interim dean of the OHSU School of Medicine, to learn what that might mean for the hospital.
  • We check in with residents of Douglas County, where the failure of a library funding  measure means the whole library system will close this spring.  
  • Artist Sandow Birk has created an version of the Quran illustrated with scenes of everyday American life. His work is on display at the University of Oregon art museum.
