Lane Transit District may transform its public safety officers into peace officers, able to enforce state and local laws.

"This gives us the opportunity, if the board chooses to give the general manager the authority to designate them as peace officers, and ability to step up the level of enforcement in terms of citations that can be written," said Andy Vobora with LTD.

Letter Carrier Food Drive started in Eugene

Letter Carrier Food Drive started in Eugene »Play Video
Everything has to start somewhere, and the Letter Carrier Food Drives conducted by Postal Service employees across the country started here in Eugene with Mark Nelson.

Hunger struck close to home for Mark Nelson more than three decades ago, early in his career with the Postal Service.

"I had just started delivering my grandmother's mail, and she was 95 years old," Nelson said. "After a month or so, I realized she was on a very fixed income. And I thought, 'Wow, you know, maybe if i did a food drive, maybe my grandma would get a food basket someday'."

Nelson retired in 2012 after 28 years with the Postal Service.

But his food drive idea still goes to work for the people of Lane County and the U.S. as the Letter Carriers Food Drive coalesced into a national effort.

The Ducks were ranked No. 2 in the country and hadn't lost a home game since 2012 heading into this season's matchup with Arizona, one of two teams to beat Oregon in the 2013 season.

A controversial unsportsmanlike conduct call against Tony Washington in the fourth quarter allowed Arizona to score the go-ahead touchdown and win the game, 31-24.

Washington said that game changed the perspective of the Duck defense.
