OREGON TREASURER'S OFFICE - Treasurer Tobias Read and buffalo chip entrepreneur William Fromm.The state treasurer's office has gone to unusual lengths to promote the state's new retirement savings program, OregonSaves.

A new method came to our attention this week: a comical video, released July 16 on the comedy site Funny Or Die, about a fictional pioneer and buffalo chip entrepreneur, William Fromm, who attempted to get Oregonians to save for their retirement.
