Memorial fills Capitol: U.S. Sens. Ron Wyden, left, and Jeff Merkley as well as U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader, all of Oregon, are seen in front among a full house to attend a memorial tribute to former U.S. Sen. Mark O. Hatfield at the Capitol in Salem on Saturday. Hatfield was remembered as a devoted teacher and courageous politician who managed to stay grounded despite five decades in the public eye. He died last month at age 89.
