The Rooney Bill, passed Friday by the Oregon House and now moving along in the Senate, will require universities in the state to use affirmative action laws when hiring new sports coaches.
Previously, schools were allowed to violate state affirmative action laws in order to speed up the hiring process.
Sam Sachs, who has pushed for passage of the bill, says that this is necessary because of the continued disparity in hiring of sports coaches
The bill was originally written to apply to football coaches in the state, but was expanded to include all college sports coaches.

Portland’s City Council voted today to extend the so-called sit-lie ordinance.  This measure makes it illegal to sit or lie down on a public sidewalk in downtown Portland.
It was set to expire in June, but the City Council has extended the ordinance until October.
Homeless activists and supporters gave passionate pleas during last week’s city council meeting, calling on the councilors to let the measure expire.
But the city council was not moved by their pleas.
Only Randy Leonard voted against the extension.
Devin Debernardo is with Sisters of the Road, a group which works with the homeless in downtown Portland

Host Crystal Leighty interviews Daniel Wolff, author of "How Lincoln Learned to Read," which takes a look at twelve Americans -- from Ben Franklin through Elvis Presley -- and the educations that made them. How do we learn what we need to know? What does the education of a Paiute woman in western Nevada have to do with Rachel Carson's childhood? What do we mean by a "good education" and who gets one? In a starred review, Kirkus called it: "A riveting, original examination of education inside and outside the classroom."

Ye scurvy barrrnacles! Harken!

Thursday I'd be preparin' to launch PrrressWench with Peter Leeson, who has written "The Invisible Hook," (get it?), a history of the democracies that we call historic pirate society. 'Tis an eye opener and no mistake.

I needed PIRATES who'd be ready to say "ARRRGH" a lot in the background.

And then I needed rum! A lot of rum!

How did the pirate raise his mast?

He used a wench!

Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet?

Communities of color - already hurting before the lastest round of troubles - have been measuring up the new president as well. Is President Obama pushing to create justice for all or is he too bogged down in the legacy of his predecessor? What should we be doing to push the president down the path of racial equity?

A new farmer’s market will open in Portland this weekend.  Portland is one of the nation’s leaders in farmer’s markets, with over a dozen weekly markets just within the city itself.
These markets allow local residents to buy their food from nearby farmers, and help small farms survive in an age of agribusiness.
Ann Forstafel is with the Portland Farmers Market, which oversees most of the markets in Portland.
