Made In Oregon sign


There is a controversy going on in Portland right now regarding the above pictured Made In Oregon sign, which faces west across the Willamette River from downtown Portland, and is seen by everyone passing through on I5. The University of Oregon in Eugene owns the sign and wants to change the much recognized wording to "Universtity of Oregon". The city of Portland is in talks about taking ownership of the sign so that it will remain the way it is, which I agree with. Even changing the wording to "Portland" or something would be more appropriate, in my opinion, than changing it to "University of Oregon", which has no direct significance in this area. Tonight the Portland City Council will reach their decision.
