Beloved Old Town Sign Saved!

March 25th, 2010

It looks like the beloved Old Town Sign might start glowing at night once again. Randy Leonard recently announced on his blog that the “Made in Oregon” sign is going to be taken over by the city. The “Made in Oregon” will be changed to read simply, “Portland, Oregon.”

There was no small public outcry a few months back when the U of O powers that be announced their plan to transform the sign to read “Go Ducks!”
