Mark and Dave: You'll need fairy dust because 2014 magic is pricey

We couldn’t help but think about you as we spent time with our families, hoping you got everything you wished for this joyous season. The same was true for some other Portland favorites. As we reflect upon the week (and year), here are the things we hope they got under the tree this Christmas:

Cover Oregon: Software that works.

Oracle: A copy of “Programming for Dummies.”

Cover Oregon’s Rocky King: Good mental health insurance.

Lars Larson: Finally, that Red Rider BB gun.

Gov. John Kitzhaber: An opponent worthy of at least making 2014 an interesting race.

Right 2 Dream Too: Storage pods.

Portland Timbers: More parking around Jeld-Wen Field.

Goose Hollow neighbors: More parking around Jeld-Wen Field.

Sales tax proponents: Fairy dust.

TriMet bus drivers: A steel cage to protect them from passengers.

Saturday Market: A heart.

Portland Trailblazers: Someone to cheer for “Mickey D’s” instead of a chalupa when they hit 100.

Rose Festival: A REAL Navy fleet.

Sweet Cakes Bakery: That gay can mean “happy” again.

Pope Francis: A new Lamborghini Veneno.

Manti Te’o: A real girl.

Fred Meyer: Liquor privatization.

Oregon Ducks football: A do-over.

Beavers coach Mike Riley: Dissociative amnesia.

Memorial Coliseum: A purpose.

Jeff Cogen: Snapchat.
