An excerpt of a Facebook conversation between Lucymae Watson and David Van Lier, as submitted in a detective's sworn affidavit to Lane County Circuit Court.

A supervisor at the county juvenile detention facility faces accusations he used a county-owned iPhone and iPad to make drug deals for heroin, Eugene Police said in sworn court documents.

David Thomas Van Lier, 44, of Eugene faces charges of unlawful possession of heroin and official misconduct.

The investigation started when Van Lier called police to report a trespasser at his home on South Garden Way, according to a police officer's sworn statement filed in Lane County Circuit Court.

Van Lier identified himself to police as a supervisor at the county's youth detention center.

The other person involved, Lucymae Watson, was arrested on an outstanding warrant related to meth.

Oregon voters have decided who they want to send to Salem in just a few months.

But no matter what side of the aisle you're on, you may enjoy seeing the place where the yays and nays of Oregon laws are counted at the state Capitol.

During the week of the election, there's very little traffic in Salem, which makes the state Capitol anything but crowded.

Firefighters kept most of the fires from growing: The Oregon Department of Forestry said 94 percent of the fires it handled were 10 acres or less.

But some fires grew much larger.

There were more than 3,500 fires in Oregon and Washington this summer that burned 100 acres or more, according the the National Interagency Coordination Center.

All told, 1.5 million acres burned in the Northwest - roughly half the acreage burned nationwide in 2014.
