Yes, Oregonians, once again
we can stand tall in the national
spotlight without the scrutiny that
has seemed to shadow our state
and leave a bad taste on the lips
of everyone in the past year. We
have gone from seeing Tonya
Harding nationally humiliated,
the ever-popular sexual presence
of Bob Packwood and the tiring
menace of the OGA, to a very
impressive trip to the Rose Bowl
and what looks to be a promising
season for U of O’s nationally^
ranked basketball and track. We
must also give credit to the #1
ranked Oregon City girls’ team
for continuing their fantastic run
for a national title. Oregon is also
awaiting the completion of the
Rose Garden, with hopes for the
addition of another professional
sports team after the loss of the
Beavers to Salt Lake, and the
Winterhawks and' Blazers both
playing a mild season.
1995 seems to be a very
promising year for our state re­
demption. Now we can only hope
the Beavers can step up their
game to keep from being over­
shadowed by the light reflecting
from the rest of the pack. I’m
looking forward to the year of
sports ahead, not only on a state
wide level, but national as well.
Now that we have seen an end to

diation in the love/hate/greed
baseball saga, things are looking
up, especially for San Francisco!
