The year in review: taking a look at Oregon's top stories in 2011
Occupy Portland. Federal investigation of Portland Police Bureau. Rep. David Wu's resignation. Kitzhaber's suspension of the death penalty. Oregon has had its share of big stories in 2011. But what headlines reflect real change and what important stories were underreported or overlooked? This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave take a look at what they see as Oregon's top stories of the year. Join the conversation and share the stories you think made a difference in 2011.
