R-G Columnist Mark Baker On Refuge Takeover & Other Stories


Mark Baker has worked at the Register-Guard in Eugene long enough to be called Senior Reporter and get his own column ("Living Here"). 

But he might be hard-pressed to come up with a year as eventful as 2015 was for him and his colleagues. 

The year included the shooting at Umpqua Community College an hour from Eugene, the resignation of the governor and the burning of Civic Stadium.  And that's just the top of the list.  We pick Mark's brain for observations about the big events of 2015, and ask for some prognostications about the year ahead.
