published: 8/28/2012 3:55:55 PM

Aug. 11 guest opinion: Oregon’s minimum wage is pricing teens out of the job market
published: 8/10/2012 11:26:45 AM
Oregon’s minimum wage laws are changing our economy, and it doesn’t seem to be for the better.

Aug. 15 staff column: Farewell and don’t forget to use your blinker
published: 8/14/2012 3:31:05 PM

Aug. 8 staff column: Goodbye journalism, hello law school
published: 8/7/2012 1:48:31 PM

Dear Colin: My husband’s knee has been hurting him more and more over the past four months after he fell down skiing.

published: 8/3/2012 3:39:47 PM

Aug. 4 Editorial: Support Newberg’s Olympic athletes
published: 8/3/2012 3:41:55 PM
Thanks to the United States’ relatively low profile on the world javelin scene and the sport’s low rung on the priority list of average Olympic fans, Newbergers Cyrus Hostetler and Rachel Yurkovich aren’t expected to receive much, if any, live television coverage as they throw the javelin this week in London.

published: 8/7/2012 1:44:31 PM

published: 8/17/2012 3:32:10 PM

published: 8/14/2012 3:29:32 PM

Aug. 22 editorial: Don't call this swimmer `disabled'
published: 8/21/2012 12:15:55 PM

Business takes harsh turn in Newberg
published: 8/28/2012 3:56:13 PM
We are one of the first to understand that business is sometimes harsh; after all, the newspaper business has had its share of layoffs.
