Here is the latest Oregon news from The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A former Safeway employee has filed a lawsuit against the grocery store chain saying she was forced to quit because a customer repeatedly stared at her breasts and made vulgar comments. The Oregonian reports that 44-year-old Daphne Lannan says in a lawsuit filed last week in Multnomah County that she asked managers at the Lebanon Safeway to stop the customer but they did not. Safeway declined to comment.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – The parents of a mentally ill man who died after suffering a major spinal injury in Lane County’s custody have reached a $7 million settlement with the jail’s medical provider. Kelly Conrad Green II died 10 months after the injury. Family lawyers say his death was due to complications from the injury.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) – Residents near the Rickreall Creek in northwest Oregon are being asked to voluntarily reduce water use to benefit neighbors downstream. The Statesman Journal reports senior water rights essentially allow the city of Dallas to drain the creek dry, but low flows caused by high temperatures have officials trying to prevent that. The city lets a million gallons of water per day flow past its intake point.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Marcus Mariota gave the Tennessee Titans a momentary scare last night when he scrambled and ran to the sideline where he collided with a scout. Mariota popped right back up and headed to the sideline after giving Marv Sunderland a hand to help him back up. It was Sunderland who worked hardest to convince the Titans to draft the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from the University of Oregon.
