Update: This story is now expanded into a front page must-read. Cars, parties, fashion. It’s true, Diane Dietz has the story. I hear a little snark about it down at the faculty club car wash, but our main concern is that when the big one hits and PLC topples over, UO will have to pay $20M in damages for the cars parked on Kincaid. Fortunately VPFA Jamie Moffitt is piling up the reserves to cover just this sort of eventuality.
And as a commenter notes, the same edition of the RG has a story on an Oregon student who is paying for school by collecting bottles:
The youngest of four children, Lilly comes from a blue collar family. She couldn’t rely on rich parents to pay for college.
“I’m responsible for any school expenses,” she said.
Lilly plans to attend medical school and become a doctor. She started doing bottle drives while she was a junior at Harrisburg High School.
