TRAVEL: A Medford couple ceremoniously reopened the Mile High Club on a flight to Las Vegas—in full view of the plane’s other passengers. 

FOOD: Viewers really, really wanted to believe a fake TV news report about local sous-chefs sneaking into people’s yards and stealing weeds for dishes.

SCIENCE: A UO-led study proved that a protein in saliva predicts how well humans react to stress—so suck it up. 

PHILANTHROPY: Surprised shoppers at a Salem Fred Meyer who discovered $100 bills in their grocery bags mused, perhaps, on how much money they might find if they shopped at Whole Foods.
