The Lone Ranger of Burns
Artifacts first led George Orr to archaeology, but culture bandits led him to a career in law enforcement.

Now, 10 years since he traded his trowel in for a badge on public lands, Orr, a Roseburg native, has been named Ranger of the Year by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

It was a gradual evolution, however, for Orr to become nationally recognized for his law enforcement work in 2007.
