Michael O'Brien Departs This Life:  In November of 2006, Michael O'Brien, one of the finest journalists in Oregon, passed away.  Below, find his last three pieces for this magazine, and a fourth on the subject of small town sports which  proves the superlatives we have used to describe him. He worked for the Tillamook paper for years.  In our opinion none of the far better known "talents" presently working at the larger metropolitan newspapers in this state have a fraction of the talent he had.  Friday Night Legends, next, is journalism as literature. Friday Night Legends & Small Town Heroes   |    Mike's last series:   Chemo day one: Life is Just a Bowl of Steroids   | Chemo round two - The King and I   |   Settlin’ in for the ride
