Lane County: OSU Extension Service Gets A Leg Up


A levy to support 4-H and Oregon State University Extension Programs in Lane County has passed. 

Some 69 percent of primary voters said yes to renewing support for OSU Extension programs, which have implemented deep cuts since the county withdrew funding in 2008. A similar measure failed back in 2010. 

Lucy Vinis is poised to succeed Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy. She received 53 percent of the vote. Mike Clark came in second with 38 percent. If Vinis's majority holds up, she'll be the only candidate on the November ballot. 

Incumbent Lane County Commissioner Patt Farr resoundingly defeated Tony McCown in the non-partisan race for District 4, taking 64 percent of the vote.
