I Just Love You Still
Life ends when you stop dreaming, hope ends when you stop believing, love ends when you stop caring, friendship ends when you stop sharing... so share this with whom ever you consider a friend. ~ Anonymous
ach February, perhaps because it seems so appropriate, I am obliged to write something about love while we find ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I do not profess to be an expert at love nor be so bold to give you counsel on it but such a complex, confusing and welcome emotion is most certainly worthy of literary comment. I love you — three little words that can have the most profound impact on the receiver. When someone tells you they love you, even if not completely reciprocated, I recommend that you accept this sentiment with great appreciation – as if someone just delivered a rare gift. Those three little words can have diverse meanings. You love your friends differently than you do your family. The love of family is profusely treasured and hopefully secure: I will always love you no matter what you do because you are family. We love our friends because of the joy they bring us and the secrets we have shared. Sometimes we lose contact with friends, but when we see them again we know there’s a great affection that remains protected. Few kinds of love will be as long lasting and constant as a really true friend. On the other hand you can walk away from a friend who has betrayed you and never look back. They are still not family. On a lighter note there’s the I just love you affirmation, which might be said to someone you know little of, but have made your life so much better, that the words expressed can only have love in them. I just love you, you say to your doctor who finds a remedy for your current malady and calls you at home to make sure you’re better. And then of course there is quixotic love between two intertwined people that will last a lifetime or arrives with colossal passion like a tsunami and then passes quickly into the
sunset. To love with passion takes risk because if unrequited it can be dreadfully painful and when not returned can leave a broken heart effecting future encounters. This is the kind of love that leaves us the most dumbfounded. Perhaps your best bet is to remember this undocumented quote: we are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with us, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. This goes with friendships as well. Conceivably the reckoning of love is first released when you are comfortable enough with someone —friend or lover — to safely share your inner most feelings, knowing that they will be respected. Albert Einstein would pen: how on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as love? The teachings of Zen tell us that the secret to falling in love is about opening your heart, clearing your mind, becoming present and being exactly who you are. Zen teaches us how to relax our grip. As this happens we begin to see each person as they truly are, not as we wish or demand. We also realize that it is not an act of love, to try to change and control another. It is an act of love to discover and appreciate who they truly are. The feelings that you have for others is central to who you are…and certainly to them. At all costs please spread the gift of love and friendship, giving and receiving at every opportune moment, out loud and with enthusiasm. For all of you who are choosing to read yet again my raptures on this elusive subject….I just love you!

Redmond High School Artists Awarded Top Honors
Dr. Nicole MacTavish, Principal of Redmond High School, announced that thirty-six Redmond High School student entries will be recognized with top awards at the Central Oregon Scholastic Art Awards ceremony at Central Oregon Community College (COCC). Seventy Redmond High School students from the art classes of Bob Crowe and Susan Shayegi entered works of art into the competition. Denise Segoviano, a Redmond High School senior, won a Silver Key Award for her Turkish brown ceramic vase with white glaze, depicting three ducks. Summer Young submitted two pieces to the competition. One was a ball point pen drawing of a raven, the other was an abstract pen and ink line work drawing on book pages. Students in the top two tiers of recognition, Gold Medal and American Vision Medal winners, will move on to national judging and could receive national recognition by appearing in an awards ceremony in New York City. Their work may also be placed in a national showcase event which travels around the entire United States.

Learning From the Past “History cannot give us a program for the future, but it can give us a fuller understanding of ourselves, and of our common humanity, so that we can better face the future.” Robert Penn Warren am guilty of knowing little about the history of my adopted state. I know that much of Oregon has a rich logging past, and that the High Desert was one of the last places in this country to be settled during the western expansion, but details surrounding the founding of our state? Nope. The intentional lack of diversity in our communities? I figured it was self-selecting….and I was wrong. During Tom DeWolf ’s research for his current book, Gather at the Table (see story on page 5), one of the astonishing facts that emerged about Oregon’s history was the intentional “whiteness” of the state. Upon passing the state constitution, 85 percent of voters did not want African Americans to live in the state, and this statute was on the books until the 1920s. “Even after that we had many communities that were called sundown communities, where black people could be in town during the day, if they had a job, but after sundown they had to be somewhere else,” DeWolf commented. Bend’s sundown status lasted until the 1950s. In other cities around the state, until the late 60s and early 70s. “The impact of that and the living consequences of that are what we are now,” DeWolf continued. “Oregon is not an integrated state; in some ways not a very tolerant state. There have been improvements, but we have a lot of work to do.” Much of what DeWolf is trying to accomplish with his book is appealing to whites to realize lack of diversity. The continued racism that many African Americans face today does in fact have influence on their lives. Whether it’s tracing genealogy, or learning more about the relatively recent history of our cities and state, we can all become better acquainted with our past. In doing so, we may be better suited to understand the present and have guidance in looking to the future. I’ve been thinking about DeWolf ’s research since we spoke. I’m not sure how I fit into the narrative of Oregon and what my role is in its future, but awareness is the first step towards change.

Tom DeWolf Embraces the Written Word

by RENEE PATRICK Cascade A&E Editor ocal Author Tom DeWolf is in the midst of a rigorous tour for his recent book, Gather at the Table: The Healing Journey of a Daughter of Slavery and a Son of the Slave Trade. The tour brought him home to Central Oregon in January where he and his co-author, Sharon Leslie Morgan, are hoping to begin a national dialogue regarding the lingering and current harms of slavery and racism. After a long career in local public service, DeWolf took a step towards a life long passion. “I have wanted to be a writer since I was 18 and never really had the courage to go for it and pursue it,” he explained. “I have started the great Local Author Tom DeWolf American novel at least a dozen times, and have a children’s book that I just love and have been sending out for 20 years heaven,” he exclaimed. “I’m so lucky to be as(and gotten lots of rejection letters).

Hard to Have Heroes Selected for Southwest Book of The Year
ard to Have Heroes, the debut novel by Bend author and photographer Buddy Mays has been selected as a Southwest Book of the Year Panelist’s Pick for 2012 by a distinguished group of Arizona judges. Sponsored by the Pima County Library System (Tucson), Southwest Books of the Year considers titles published during the current year that concern or are set in the American Southwest. Released in August by University of New Mexico Press, Hard to Have Heroes takes place both in Oregon and in New Mexico. Set in 1957, the novel relates the escapades of fourteen-yearBuddy Mays old Oregonian Noah Odell during the year heand his mother lived with a cantankerous uncle on a hard scrabble ranch in southern New Mexico. Neither Noah nor his mother could have imagined the
alien world they were to enter when they moved to his eccentric uncle’s “kettle wrench” near the small desert town of Tularosa. Spicy with tales of lost outlaw gold, ghostly Spanish maidens, crazy roosters and peculiar Apache professors, Hard to Have Heroes is a coming-of-age story that pits the tenacity and determination of a modern-day Tom Sawyer against the power and greed of the U.S. Government. Both funny and frightening, this irresistible portrait of life in a simpler time and place is a superb adult novel that older kids will love too. Mays is a nationally recognized photographer and the author of eleven previous books. A native of Santa Fe, New Mexico, he has lived in Central Oregon with his wife and daughter for sixteen years. www.buddymays.com.

Dumping Those Emails lighterside By The One & Only Isn't as Easy as It Seems Paul Bianchina
don’t know if this was a good thing or a bad thing, but 2013 opened in rather dramatic fashion when a camera crew rolled up to our door shortly after the first of the year. Apparently one of the reality networks had been monitoring us, and my wife had been selected for the premier episode of the new reality show, Email Hoarders…. Roll intro. Pictures of heavily distorted computers under dark, brooding clouds. Thunder rolls. Lightning crackles. Dramatic music builds in the background. The deep yet quietly sympathetic tones of the voice-over announcer begins: “Welcome. This……. is Email Hoarders. Please join us as we take you on a journey, a real-life look behind the curtain at the chaos of the stress-filled lives of the people that society has forgotten. We’ll wander along the cluttered pathways trodden by these lost souls who’ve been abandoned in today’s paperless world. We’ll watch as their fingers tremble helplessly above the “delete” button, living in constant fear of pressing it and removing some vital joke or kitten picture from their hard drive forever. This is the hopeless and cluttered world……. of Email Hoarders. “Viewer discretion is advised.” Camera 1, tight shot of hot blonde looking at camera: “Hello. I’m Dr. Zello-Cyber. I specialize in OECD - Obsessive Email Collection Disorder. I have a Doctorate from Google University, with a Bing Minor. Today I’m meeting with Subject R. from a small city in Oregon. R. came to our attention after she had to upgrade her computer to a much larger one, rather than actually delete anything off it. It’s one of the worst cases of OECD I’ve ever seen. “I’ve donned gloves and a mask, rubber boots, an apron, leather chaps and a full wet suit for protection. I have a welding torch, a spear gun, two candles and a 50-pound box of cyber bread crumbs so I won’t get lost. All of this gear is necessary before entering a badly cluttered OECD computer.” (“Warning: Bing-trained professional in a closed computer. Do not attempt this at home.”) Camera 2, pans to computer. Close shot, tight on email screen. Shows 1,347,893 emails. Also shows 74,239 new unread emails. Camera 1, pans to Dr. Z-C and Subject R. “Hello R. I’m Dr. Zello-Cyber. I’m afraid you have OECD, but I’m here to help.” Subject R: “I’m fine. I don’t have any OE-whatever. I’m fine I tell youjust fine. Leave me alone!” Dr. Z-C: “Now R., you had to abandon your last computer, and your new, much larger one is filling up quickly. You have over 1.3 million emails, and over 74,000 that you haven’t even read yet. Do you understand that you don’t need all those emails? Did you know that there are other things on your computer - like useful programs that actually do things?” Subject R: “Yeah, someone told me that once. I looked around, and I found a pretty cool thing called Spider Solitaire that I play sometimes.
www.CascadeAE.com| February 2013
But mostly all that does is distract me from the emails. The emails are important. They must me read. They must be collected. I need them! I need every single one of them! Society sends them to me because they’re important! If I delete them, they’re gone! Don’t you understand - GONE! Don’t you touch them!!” Dr. Z-C: “Now settle, R., settle. We won’t touch anything without your permission. We’ll start slowly, I promise.” Camera 1 pans to a convoy of large tanker trucks in the driveway, followed by another strange looking stainless steel truck with what appears to be a massive reel of hose on the back. All the vehicles say 1-800-GOT-eMAIL on the sides. Men in HAZ-MAT suits hop off and begin unwinding the hose. Camera 2 pans in tight on another man. “Hello. My name is Matt and I own and operate MESSIECRAP - Massive Email Suction Services In Extreme Computer Reality-Associated Programs. With my MESSIECRAP suction truck and disposal team from 1-800-GOTeMAIL, we’ll separate and haul off all of R.’s unneeded emails. Some will be disposed of, but most will go to charities and homeless shelters so the less fortunate among us who don’t get as many emails will know that society hasn’t forgotten them. “But first, Dr. Zello-Cyber and I have to convince R. to part with some of them.” Camera 1 pans back to Dr. Z-C, Matt and R. Dr. Z-C: “Now R. This email says your account at the Sagebrush Bank has been frozen. But you don’t have an account there. Can we allow Matt to suction this one off the computer?” R: NO! I might open an account there someday, then how will I know if it’s frozen when it isn’t?” Dr. Z-C: “Oooo-K. Uh, how about this one from Nicaragua. You don’t really know anyone there, and you know you didn’t win the lottery there, right? And you’re not actually going to wire them your bank account information? So let’s have Matt give this to someone at the homeless shelter who doesn’t have a bank account, and can have fun with a new Central American pen pal, okay? R. NO! I want a Central American pen pal. Really I do! Matt: You need to part with something. How about this animated dancing puppy? I see you actually have 1137 copies of the same email in different places. R. Oh. I thought some of those were from a different litter. I guess you can vacuum off a couple of them. As long as you give them to the Humane Society. I don’t want to see them just deleted. Dr. Z-C: Excellent! Now we’re making progress. Matt, go ahead and vacuum out the animated dancing puppy pictures and - wait, those are kinda cute aren’t they. Uh, forward a copy to my email address would you? Matt: Yeah, no problem. I’m sending one to myself as well, and the camera crew wanted one, and so did the voice-over guy, and I think I’ll send a couple of copies to my Mom and my Aunt Amy and…. firstname.lastname@example.org.

ast month an airplane full of Jamaicans arrived in Central Oregon to shoot their third and fourth video productions with Oregon filmmaker Tim Cash. The videos will feature the Jamaican R&B star Omi, who has risen to fame throughout the Caribbean, South America and Europe since joining the Kingstonbased label Shang Records. Much of Omi’s buzz is due to the two videos created by Cash last July. Omi’s producer “specialist” hopes to keep the buzz high with two more videos filmed in Central Oregon; a new and different setting for reggae music productions usually set in the Caribbean. The Cash films produced last summer include Cheerleader and Standing on All Threes. This time around, one Omi video will tell the story of a woman calling to him in his dreams. Omi follows her through the mountains and the snow, going deeper and deeper into the wilderness. When he finally finds her, he ends up saving her life by rescuing her from a cave. Much of the footage for this video was shot from a helicopter in order to capture the true grandeur of the Cascade Mountains. “We’re really trying to push the boundaries of lowbudget filmmaking,” Cash said. “I don’t know the last time I saw helicopter shots in a low-budget music video, but I’m sure that’s why Omi keeps coming back, because we can pull off some incredible things for the right price, and we have some incredibly scenic locations right out the back door. We’re drawing the attention of all kinds

Sunriver Stars Plan O, Henry...A Collection of Jookalorum
he Sunriver Stars, Sunriver’s own community theatre, will be holding auditions February 7 for their next show, O, Henry…A Collection of Jookalorum. Jooka- what you may ask? Jookalorum is a word personally invented by O. Henry himself to mean splendid, extraordinary and special. That is what you will experience by being a part of this series of short plays says Victoria Kristy-Zalewski, Stars artistic director. “We are looking for actors with or without experience, young adult or old codger. If you are interested, you are invited to request an entire script by emailing me at email@example.com or you may check our website for auditioning monologues. “We are also looking for extra help from the community with this show. We need a musician to play banjo or guitar who would join the cast to play old time music as we transition between each scene. Also needed is someone with a little technical experience to set up our new lighting equipment and operate the dimmer controls at each show.

Brian Johnson as Malvolio and Erica Boismenu as Olivia.
this one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. When young Viola is washed ashore following a catastrophic shipwreck, she seeks to protect her honor by disguising herself as a boy. Taking service with the handsome Duke Orsino, she soon finds herAudrey Colton Smith as Maria and Andrew self wooing the proud Olivia on her Hickman as Sir Toby Belch master’s behalf. Olivia is not at all interested in the Duke’s proposal, but she finds herself completely smitten with the young boy (she thinks) who woos so prettily. More confusion ensues with jealousy, fights, duels, double-crosses and some of Shakespeare’s most beautiful language. After all, “The course of true love never did run smooth” even if, at the finish, “All’s well that ends well.”

horoughly Modern Productions and Stage Right Productions present Working, A Musical. Working opens at 2nd Street Theater February 15 with a champagne reception and runs through March 2. Working is a vital, newly re-mastered musical based on the book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Studs Terkel. This re-adaptation by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin and Godspell) from the original adaptation by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, Working is the working man’s A Chorus Line. A musical exploration of 26 people from all walks of life, with songs by all-star composers Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Tony Award winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Rodgers, Susan Birkenhead, Stephen Schwartz and Grammy Award winning James Taylor. Working celebrates everyday people in a genuinely funny and touching way. “I was approached by the producers of Metro Stage Company in Boston, Massachusetts to play a part in a relatively unknown musical for their upcoming season,” says Director David DaCosta. “Being one to never turn down an opportunity when it comes as an invitation, I accepted, not knowing what a powerfully inspiring and uplifting experience I was about to encounter. Working is a musical about people: their lives, their triumphs and tribulations, their hopes and dreams and a reflection of these things in all of us.” Unlike traditional “book” musicals, Working is hybrid: part review, part ensemble, part one man show. It tells the stories not just of

end jewelry designer Jim Dailing’s “innovative gem and jewelry designs” were honored in the 65th anniversary issue of Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist magazine, among eight other jewelry greats who have been creating wearable art since the publication’s founding in 1947. Dailing was surprised and humbled to discover that he shared the honor with a number of his heroes in the jewelry field. The publication chose a swirling pair of his handmade platinum earrings, accented with Tahitian pearls and yellow sapphires, to highlight. Dailing has been creating stunning one-of-akind wedding and celebration jewelry for over 25 years. He specializes in creating “story rings,” which symbolically evoke the stories couples relate to him. His work is often richly textured and contains unusual elements such as recycled gold, Handmade platinum earrings colored diamonds, papaya seeds and threads accented with Tahitian pearls and yellow sapphires from an Indian sari. He is a national expert on the use of palladium in rings. Recent commissions have come from as far away as Germany, South Korea, Peru and the Arctic Circle. On February 8, Dailing will host an “Anti-Valentine’s Day” event called the Great Ring Meltdown. An evening of supportive sharing, laughing and envisioning the future, the Great Ring Meltdown will give each participant an opportunity to tell his or her story and hopes for the future to people who have had a similar experience. He or she will then hold the torch and experience the closure of melting their former wedding ring, giving them fresh, untarnished material to create a powerful symbol of their new beginning in life. Dailing received his BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and his MFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. He has taught at the university level in Wisconsin and Oregon, and is currently a member of Central Oregon Community College’s art department. He teaches workshops for jewelers locally and around the country. His work can be seen in galleries in Portland, Hood River and Madison, Wisconsin. www.jimdailing.com.

with his brother on and off since he was 18. On rhythm guitar is Milo Estrada, one of the first musicians Haaby met when he moved to Bend. Estrada learned the classical guitar at an early age, but found it was Haaby’s song Rattlesnake that inspired him to learn more of the flamenco guitar. “We have been playing together now for eleven years, and we have such a telepathy; he knows where I am going with every song, there is this back and forth and the comradery between us,” Haaby said. George Boehey is on the keyboard, and his incredible solos in the recording studio make him an integral part of the group. “Surprisingly not only is he incredible on the piano, but is great on percussion and drums when we play live,” Haaby said. “We have only tapped into that this last year; he really knows how to play.” Michael Summers is Sola Via’s drummer. “He is one of the best drummers I have every played with,” Haaby said. “He just gets it, everything is so precise and he is a human metronome in the studio.” Rounding out the group is bass player Warren Zaiger who fills in for Bobby from time to time. Haaby’s unique talents particularly Todd Haaby’s 2012 Album, Nu Tierra
come into play when composing a new song, as he is able to imagine the completed composition in his mind. “The music in my head keeps coming,” he said. “I could write a song a day, and I seem to write songs in my sleep.” Upon entering the studio, he plays the rhythm guitar according to the tune in his head, then lays down the melody over the top of that track, building the layers of sound piece by piece. “I bring in the musicians to play their parts, and if I don’t write it down, I’ll hum or play it on the guitar. However I am able to bring up the melody for them to grab it and layer upon layer we record it. I love it when the musicians improvise and when they add their personality to the song. They are all so proficient; I just let them run with it. I give them the gist of what I have in my head and they run with it.” Sola Via’s tour schedule has been steadily building steam, and Haaby is thrilled at the prospect of even more travel as his goal is to perform globally. “I love the travel; living in Japan geared me up for it. I was going all over and living like a gypsy out of my suitcase. I don’t think it’s grueling, it’s fun! I’m looking forward to being busier and traveling the world,” he commented. “I want to share my music around the world…going global is a quest. “It’s hard to say where my music will go… the biggest things [I’ve learned influences my music] are the experiences I’ve had in my life: the good, bad and the ugly. I will continue to write my songs around what I have experienced and what I am feeling.” Haaby and Sola Via continue to pull in sold-out crowds to their performances with their spicy Nuevo flamenco music. “To be sold out is such a complement, it makes you want to deliver,” Haaby finished. Todd Haaby is nominated for an Independent Music Award this year and is building his winter and spring tour schedule. Look for details of future performances at www.toddhaaby.com.

Karen Bandy Design Jeweler 25 NW Minnesota Ave., #5, 541-388-0155, www.karenbandy.com.

You will see original jewelry and fine art all designed and created by Karen Bandy. The colors will wow you, the designs will intrigue you, and you’ll be amazed at how comfortable her jewelry is to wear. “The connection of the paintings with the jewelry is evident in my work, even though it is for the most part an unconscious connection. I’m sure the years of designing jewelry, my use of color and shapes, drives me in my paintings but I never set out deliberately to make that connection. It just happens,” says Bandy.

Townshend’s Bend Teahouse 835 NW Bond Street, Bend, 541-312-2001. Featuring Eternal Ephemera exhibited by photographer,Travis Jennings. With the technology of photography, Jennings eternalizes the ephemeral, celebrates the relative fleetingness of our perpetually evolving world and glorifies the ability to fix an instant of time into an image. With the seemingly simple snap of a shutter, bursts of reflected solar energy are admitted into the camera for fragments of a second. This instantaneous capture of a scene creates a juxtaposition of time-scale disparity. The natural landscape, having taken millennia to morph into its current state, is frozen by a device that records it all in near unfathomable snippets of time. When pondering this relativity, Jennings realizes that even the millennial scale is momentary in the large run of things, and that objects or scenes perceived as eternal, are actually quite ephemeral in the universal context.

Bill Hoppe Works on Paper
end artist Bill Hoppe will exhibit Works on Paper in the Governor’s Office, in the Capitol Building in Salem, through February 21. Begun in 2009 as a series of monoprints inspired by Hoppe’s garden, the nineteen works in this exhibition incorporate a spatial illusion taken from a 1425 drawing by Paolo Uccello (1397 - 1475). The Wavelength series forms a parade of events moving through the visible spectrum while referring poetically to the unseen waves of the electromagnetic spectrum. Hoppe lives in Bend where he is an assistant professor of art at Central Oregon Community College. He received an MFA in painting from the University of Washington. His work is included in more than 40 public collections including both the Seattle and Portland Art Museums and the Weyerhaeuser, Microsoft and Tektronix corporate collections. He has shown his work at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, New York and numerous galleries throughout the Pacific Northwest. Hoppe received a National Endowment for the Arts Individual Fellowship in drawing in

Western Horse Painter Creates 2013 Sisters Rodeo Poster who has performed with Brooke Shields, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. In 1997, he opened the final go-round of National Finals Rodeo with a song he wrote, Fly Without Wings. He has released two albums, and now performs with the band Quarter Horse around the northwest. The talent doesn’t stop there. Godby has added burned etched leather to his repertoire, in purses, briefcases, wallets, Bible covers and wall hangings. His artwork can be viewed at dyrkgodby.com. He lives on Indian Ford Road with his wife, Kanoe Durdan Godby, a former Sisters Rodeo Queen. The poster can be purchased at Leavitt’s Western Wear until the Sisters Rodeo ticket office opens in late spring. Sisters Rodeo has five performances, June 5, Xtreme Bulls, and June 7-9 Rodeo. 541-549-0121 or 800-826-7522. www.sistersrodeo.com. 6

yrk Godby, a popular Western artist, has created the 2013 Sisters Rodeo poster art, an oil painting of a steer wrestler rolling onto a steer while his classic Paint horse charges ahead, doing the job it was trained to do. For Godby, whose paintings are seen in galleries and restaurants in Sisters, the focus of his art is the grace of the Western horse in its working world. Godby himself has worked as a horse rancher since childhood in Idaho, Oregon and Nevada. His family bred and raised Paint horses, horses with pinto markings that have the conformation and breeding of the American Quarter Horse. The opportunity to have Godby paint a poster of a sport and lifestyle he knows well was highly desired by Sisters Rodeo. His mastery of the movement of a horse in action is unparalleled, and his attention to detail in cowboys, ranch animals and gear is a result of his life experience. “He paints what he knows and admires, especially in the working Western horse,” said John Leavitt, a former rodeo competitor and Sisters Rodeo Committee member. In 2009, Godby was recognized by America’s Horse in Art, the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame Museum in Amarillo, Texas. He was also honored as the American Paint Horse Association Artist of the Year in 2006. He has repeatedly received Best in Show honors and People’s Choice honors at Western art shows across the nation. “I’ve painted posters for lots of rodeos, but I’m thrilled to death to do this for Sisters,” Godby said. “It’s fantastic to be chosen by a rodeo that brings in world champions.” Godby has been painting for thirty years, even while he worked on ranches. His limited edition prints have experienced enormous success, often selling out to collectors and Western art fans. The talented painter is also a musician 2013 Poster by Dyrk Godby

dishes for us to sample instead of having us order off the menu. We agreed enthusiastically with a single caveat. We needed an order of Karnabeet, a dish of seared cauliflower in lemony tahini that will win over even a confirmed cauliflower hater. It was as good as always. The sweet and salty Carrot and Feta Jam— spiced with cinnamon, cloves and allspice served over a mix of Greek feta and imported labneh cheeses—was a discovery. The dish not only tasted like Christmas, it looked like it too. We also enjoyed the Fattoush Salad, a basic green salad accented with parsley, mint and sumac (a Middle Eastern berry that’s ground and used as a spice) and tossed in a lemon, yogurt vinaigrette

That’s a fantastic seafood dish.” Executive Chef Jake accepted our raves with his typical humility, giving the nod for the stuffed shrimp to John Nelson—top chef and owner of the now defunct and lamented Blue Olive. Thick, almost fruity lamb stew on a bed of hummus also stood out with its layered flavors including sweet caramelized onions and pickled onions (“for that opposing sweet and sour goodness,” says Chef Jake), pomegranate, cinnamon, cumin, allspice and zatar (a Middle Eastern spice mix). By comparison, the grilled kebabs (saffron shrimp, wild salmon and chicken) seemed almost too tame despite being tasty and tender. Of the three, the salmon won hands down and garnered one rave. “I love this,” announced Leah. “So simple. So moist. So delicious.” laced with a touch of pomegranate.

by LINDEN GROSS, A&E Feature Writer e’re going to Kebaba for dinner,” my friend Diane announced over the phone. “You want to join?” Kebaba? For dinner? The small Middle Eastern restaurant has been a lunch favorite of mine for years, but somehow I’d never considered it as a dinner spot. Still, I knew that two of my favorite local chefs—Jake Lewis and Mike Ormsby—who used to work at Brasada’s Blue Olive as well as Scanlon’s were now at the helm. “Count me in,” I announced. The company and Chef Mike’s Thai shrimp special made me glad that I had agreed to go. The shrimp were perfectly cooked, remaining tender and juicy in a broth that hit perfect notes on both the spice and coconut milk fronts. Of course, last I looked Thailand isn’t exactly in the Middle East, but who cares. The dish was divine. I returned six weeks later with three other friends to do a restaurant review. We started out with cocktails and the Trio Sampler: Bend’s creamiest hummus (a spread made from Northwest-grown chickpeas blended with tahini and lemon) which our table agreed was “perfection,” a Harissa red pepper version of the hummus and delicious babaganouj (eggplant mixed with tahini and lemon), all served with fresh raw veggies and homemade pita fresh out of the oven that was so tasty one of my friends called it “ridiculous.” By the time we had moved on to the second round of appetizers, the little bungalow on Newport was jamming. Nearly every table was filled with customers ranging from families with young children to people closer to my dad’s age. Energetic, happy hubbub. That also worked for me.

Iris DeMent Sing the Delta
K.O.K.O (Keep On Keeping On) Yvonne Ramage
have to admit that until very recently I had not heard of Iris Dement. But when I saw the cover of her new CD I had to hear what she had to say in her new book of songs. Just by looking at her I was positive that this was a singer with deep roots in Arkansas and would surely deliver a soulful combination of gospel, blues, folk and country. I was not disappointed. DeMent’s new album, her fifth, is her first in eight years. All the songs on Sing the Delta are written by DeMent and she explores varying kinds of loss as she captures her times spent in “tiny, over-crowded bars, half-empty theatres, libraries, churches, museums, parks, parking lots and tents…you name it.” Her mother used to ask her: “Ain’t you got tard yet of trapesin all over the country?” Dement was born in the Arkansas Delta, and although she moved to California as a child, the influence of the region is vividly recalled both in her voice and in her own words. She says it’s where “my people on both sides going back eked out a livin’ farmin’ and fillin’ cotton sacks.” DeMent explains that she comes from a musical family and says she got from her religious parents that “music was something to lean on.” The songs about her early childhood in Arkansas - where she would sometimes attend a Pentecostal church seven days a week - are tales of love and pained stories of death and faith questioned. You’ll be both captivated and soothed by The Night I Learned How Not to Pray, Go On Ahead and Go Home (which brings touches of Loretta Lyn to memory) and the wonderful Before The Colours Fade and Sing the Delta. As DeMent plays the piano she lifts her drawling voice and delivers the memories of the Arkansas Delta. John Prine, one of her early advocates, said, “Iris’s songs talk about isolated memories of life, love and living.” by Pamela Hulse Andrews
vonne Ramage, an acoustic solo artist, wrote and produced a CD called K.O.K.O, featuring her funky-folky mix of upbeat pop sounds. Ramage returns to her roots in the Pacific Northwest after touring internationally and living in Las Vegas performing original music and polishing her songwriting skills. K.O.K.O showcases Ramage’s smooth vocals while on guitar and flute with Anthony Pickett on bass. Soulful lyrics are written by Ramage to capture “a single journey that can be shared and understood by many.” The neo-soul blended with the pop and folk sounds on this CD will move you to Come Dance and put a spring in your step, to pause, enjoying a moment in life. The second song is called Jah Motion, representing our need for more “Jah” (oneness, Hallelujah, divine nature) in the world.” Her musical journey began in Antarctica in 1995 where Ramage focused on music as “an avenue of expression.” She has drawn from her travel experiences and adventures in Antarctica, New Zealand, Fiji and Micronesia to illustrate her own journey as a lyrical story. Keep On Keeping On being the third song on her seventh CD has a groovy and sultry vibe. Taking a break from live performing, Ramage focused her time on the sound and studio production of this soulful, rhythmic album and now is taking it on the road. Ramage recently settled in Bend and has a local performance on March 9, 6:30pm at River Rim Coffeehouse in Brookswood Plaza. www.yvonneramage.com. by April Lewis

Janiva Magness Stronger for It
ontemporar y blues singer Janiva Magness has been nominated for the 2013 Blues Music Awards / B.B. King Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year-- Stronger for It, Contemporary Blues Female Artist of the Year, Contemporary Blues Album of the Year-- Stronger for It and Song of the Year–I Won’t Cry (by Magness and Dave Darling) from Stronger for It. (She previously won the Blues Foundation’s 2009 B.B. King Entertainer of the Year.) Her robust and soulful voice graces her newest CD, Stronger for It, which is deemed a little more passionate than some of her previous recordings including Devil is an Angel Too (2010), What Love Will Do (2008) and Do I Move You (2006). A brief rundown of how Janiva came to the blues was recently unveiled in an interview with Lauren Daley: When Magness was 13, her mother committed suicide. When she was 16, her father followed suit. So Magness ran away from home. She was homeless on the streets of Berkley, California for six months, and got pregnant when she was 16. Magness kept her baby girl for four months before realizing she could not take care of the infant, and gave her up for adoption. She numbed her pain with drink and drugs. She was often homeless, in and out of foster homes and social workers ultimately didn’t know how to help her, she said. Today, at 55, Magness is an ambassador for Foster Care Alumni of America. Magness — who hasn’t recorded her own songs since her 1997 debut — co-wrote three for her new album: There It Is, Whistling in The Dark and I Won’t Cry. The new album also includes songs by Tom Waits, Matthew Sweet, Buddy and Julie Miller, Shelby Lynne, Grace Potter and Ray Wylie Hubbard — all with her unique vocal strengths that tug at your heart. Stronger for It seems assertive and inspirational, more inventive than other recordings. Following recent difficult events in her life, she professes this is a statement of survival, singing about loss and now recovery. We profess this to be yet another outstanding and passionate recording by a rather incredible original vocalist. by Pamela Hulse Andrews

Cascade School of Music Offers Awesome Afterschool Orchestra
AASO features violin & cello instruction
Music | Dance | Festivals
HDCM Valentine’s Day Concert at the Oxford
ascade School of Music hosts nearly 500 students at their campus near the Portland Avenue bridge near downtown Bend. In addition, they bring music programs to elementary-age kids where they are - in elementary schools. Cascade School of Music’s Awesome Afterschool Orchestra (AASO) features violin and cello instruction to third, fourth and fifth graders. Students meet twice a week, give three performances over the school year and emerge with a new identity, as musicians. AASO has a beginning and intermediate program as well as a new summer component. In 2011, Cascade School of Music took over administration of AASO. The program was originally started over ten years ago by the Central Oregon Symphony Association to support participation in middle school orchestra programs. Cascade School of Music re-energized the program, and in less than a year, enrollment grew from an average of 30 kids to 70. AASO is held at Bear Creek Elementary and attended by kids from all over the district. Almost half of AASO students are paying reduced tuition. This is the only opportunity for elementary-age kids to get a start on learning a musical instrument in a low-cost group environment. “The arts are a vital component to youth development and for some this may be the beginning of a life-long love of music. Pacific Power is proud to support the Cascade School of Music’s after school program that allows students to explore their interest in music instruction,” said Angela Price, Pacific Power regional community manager. www.ccschoolofmusic.org. www.facebook.com/CascadeAE | February 2013

New Perspective For February by Eileen Lock
he rules change on the 1st and a new approach will be necessary. Trust your gut feelings on the 4th and realize your intuition is really strong. Positive changes on the 6th are encouraging and will be a glimpse of things to come. Decisions made at this time may need to be revisited next month to take care of the details. The New Moon on the 9th may have you realizing there is no going back to the old way. Enjoy the changes and trust in your future. Everything feels like it is falling into place from the 11th to the 16th. Step up to the moment and make as much forward progress as possible. Let go of any doubts or worries on the 20th and allow yourself to dream. Be patient during all conversations after the 23rd and realize you that you just need to have faith. The Full Moon on the 25th asks you to trust enough to keep moving forward for the next few days. Situations are clarified on the 26th as the truth becomes very obvious. Let go of the past over the last few days and begin visualizing what you want the next part of your life to look like. Make a promise to yourself to let happiness be a priority and imagine how that will feel. 541-389-1159, http://www.eileenlock.freeservers.com, http://www.oneheartministry.freeservers.com.
