Note to Clinton and Obama: If You're Looking for a Debate Venue in Oregon...

Before Obama rejects the proposal out of hand, we'd like to remind ...   More

The Medford Mail Tribune Endorses Novick

The Medford Mail Tribune today endorsed attorney Steve Novick in his bid for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate. Some observers discount Novick because he hasn't served as a legislator while Merkley has, saying he would be less effective. We don't buy that for a minute.

Novick backed by Big Booster?

At this point in the political season, it's not unusual to see campaign signs making strange flower-bedfellows (such as the Obama-Ron Paul pairing I passed today). But a fortuitous placement of a public-service billboard at the corner of Northeast 28th Avenue and Sandy Boulevard makes us wonder if Steve Novick, the 4-foot-9-inch Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, has the powerful booster-seat ...   More
