News Release from Patrick Flaherty's Office today:


Chief Deputy District Attorney Traci Anderson and Deputy District Attorney Pat Horton have submitted letters of resignation effective July 5, 2011.
Ms. Anderson is a stellar prosecutor with an incredible work ethic who enthusiastically took on the many challenges our office has encountered during the transition period. At the same time, Traci worked nearly every major case that has come in since January as well as several major cases that were pending when she arrived. Ms. Anderson also completely revamped the process by which Measure 11 cases are screened, set in motion the re-structuring of how all cases are processed from intake through file closing, and served as an outstanding mentor to the younger prosecutors in the office.
Traci Anderson’s departure is a huge loss for the District Attorney’s Office as well as her many friends and colleagues. She will be sorely missed.
Pat Horton came on board as a management analyst and as such assessed the office policies and procedures then in place as well as the physical environment of the office. Mr. Horton, with the able assistance of Traci Anderson, efficiently went about implementing or setting in motion many of the procedural and structural changes he recommended. He was also of invaluable assistance during the recent budget process.
I was honored to have Pat Horton, who was the Lane County District Attorney for 12 years, come on board and am deeply grateful for his outstanding service. His drive and enthusiasm for seeing justice done is remarkable. We will miss him; and will hunt him down if he fails to visit us regularly.

There will be no further comment. Thank you.




Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:





  • Click on the link for the latest conditions on the mountain passes.


  • Intersection of NW Broadway Street and NW Delaware for waterline replacement project, road closures with detours clearly marked for thru traffic, 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily with roads opened nightly. Motorists are encouraged to avoid this area and use Bond Street and Wall Street.


  • Nels Anderson Road between Nels Anderson Place and Brandis Court, single northbound shoulder closure will be in effect, two-way traffic to be maintained. Project completion expected December 2017.
