Tough Day For Ducks, Beavers

It wasn't the most stellar day for Oregon football.

The fifth-ranked University of Oregon Ducks didn't help their chances for a fourth year of B-C-S bowls. The Ducks were routed by the University of Arizona Wildcats 42 to 16, Saturday, in Tucson. The Wildcats took advantage of numerous Oregon miscues including three turnovers.

Things didn't go much better for Oregon State. The University of Washington Huskies defeated the Beavs 69 to 27 Saturday night in Corvallis. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak over the Huskies at Reser Stadium.

College students and business leaders joined Oregon U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley Friday in calling on congress to ban workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Senator Merkley helped pass Oregon's workplace protection law in 2007 when he was speaker of the Oregon House. He says not all states offer the same employment protections for gay, lesbian, bi-sexual or trans-gendered.

U of O officials asked the Secretary of State to audit the Institute of Neuroscience after an internal review flagged problems. In 2009, the governor imposed across the board furloughs and pay freezes for all state employees in response to the economic crisis. Tony Green is with the Secretary of State's office.
