Dropping a class
Such promise in the title, "Radical Home Economics." Last spring I met the enthusiastic young man who'd teach it. Bummer. "What did you expect with a man teaching?"

Officer JS was flagged down around 11:49 p.m. by a student who said his car had been broken into. His car was parked in Parking Structure 1 when two pistols, an assault rifle and 1800 rounds of ammunition were removed from the vehicle. Officer S referred the situation to the Portland Police Bureau.
