A Eugene Library worker spotted a bug on a chair on the third floor and collected it.
Once the library was notified it was indeed a bed bug, Lavena Nohrenberg said library staff got rid of the chair and brought in pest control experts to inspect every chair throughout the library.
"We found a few chairs that had evidence of bed bugs that surrounded the initial chair," said Nohrenberg, the customer experience manager at the libary. "All of those chairs were removed, and as a precaution all of the areas surrounding the chairs were treated."
The driver who hit and killed a man with her car in Springfield last week drove a mile and a half with the victim stuck in the roof rack before she stopped, pulled him off her car and left him on the side of the road, police now say.
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.
