Some think of art as a way to engage with life, to learn something about themselves and/or the world. Others want art to be an escape from personal problems and the contemporary hurly-burly. The second group will probably be drawn to Anne Marie Fleming's pastels of the Oregon countryside, now showing at the Steven Scott Gallery. Their feathery foliage, soft colors, placid waters and gentle, silvery light constitute an invitation to walk into their scenes, sit down under a tree and just daydream the afternoon away.

Bradley Williams makes a good point about the problems with legalizing assisted suicide, one of them being that people assisting a suicide may have their own agenda ( "The perils of assisted suicide," Oct. 2). Mr. Williams gives as an example a recent Montana case in which a man is accused of encouraging a teenage girl to kill herself in order to prevent her from testifying against him in a rape trial. I am a doctor in Oregon, one of the few states in which physician-assisted suicide is legal.

Ducks superior, but … Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times It might be the most exciting and high-scoring game in BCS title-game history. Auburn would have the two best players on the field in quarterback Cam Newton and defensive lineman Nick Fairley, but Oregon is the more balanced team. Oregon might score 60 on Auburn's defense, but Auburn might push 50 on Oregon. A turnover here or there and we could be looking at 55-55 headed into overtime.

Alexa Fraser's recent commentary promotes the idea of legalizing physician-assisted suicide ( "Political candidates should debate the right to die," Sept. 28). The term "physician-assisted suicide" means that a physician provides the means or information to enable a patient to perform a life-ending act, such as through a lethal prescription. The premise of Ms. Fraser's commentary is that legalization of physician-assisted suicide will eliminate other types of suicides, such as those resulting from self-inflicted gunshot wounds.

But after his post-graduation hiatus from the game, Branch resurfaced at Cloud County Community College in Concordia, Kan., and developed into one of the most wanted JUCO shooting guards in the country.

Ed Dickson said he's looking forward to seeing former University of Oregon teammate Patrick Chung in Sunday's AFC championship game, but that doesn't mean that the Ravens tight end wants the New England Patriots safety to be the catalyst to push his team to victory. "I like seeing guys from my university do well, but not against us," said Dickson, who spent three seasons (2006-08) with Chung playing for the Ducks. "So it's going to be nothing personal, but I'm going to go at him as if he never played on my team and after the game, hopefully, we're still friends.

Many Americans have lamented the state of public education. Few have proposed reforms as radical as those in Oregon, whose legislature has endorsed a plan to install European-style apprenticeships and job training for all students not headed to college. All students will have to show competence in mathematics, science and other academic areas by the 10th grade, then choose between pre-college studies or any of several vocational, professional or business curricula. Primary schools are to be ungraded from kindergarten through third grade, with students grouped by ability instead of age.Educators promoted these changes.

When Devin Redd thinks of Lawrence Cager, his mind goes back to the summer before Cager's freshman year at Calvert Hall. There, during July summer workouts, in his red shorts, white T-shirt and black Nike shoes, he ran routes and caught passes alongside guys who would go on to play Division I football. Redd, then the wide receivers coach at Calvert Hall, was mesmerized by Cager's size and athletic ability. But he was confused when he found out Cager wanted to be a kicker. "I said, 'Nah, man, you're not a kicker,' " Redd recalled.
