Newspapers that pursued various members of the House and Senate through their town hall meetings found an oddly mixed reaction, with the accolades and brickbats coming from predictably partisan corners and no consensus about the accomplishments or outrages of this historic session.

This week has been proclaimed Oregon Problem Gambling Awareness Week, and our state joins a national campaign to promote the benefits of problem gambling prevention and treatment.
