EUGENE, OREGON — Check out these fun events happening this weekend in Lane County!
Dear readers: thank you so much for your support towards Highlite and the original content we create for you to better connect the Eugene community. It has come to our attention that the Register-Guard is allegedly stealing our content and article concepts to use as their own. We have spoken to the Editor-in-Chief and attempted to speak to the individual doing this to us but with no avail. We hope that you continue to support our volunteer run publication that is backed by the passion of our writers as we continue to investigate further.
