> MORE MONEY, MORE PROBLEMS When locals learned that a $6.4 million winning lottery ticket had been purchased in Bend, people were understandably curious. Surely the winner would be revealed before long, holding a larger-than-life check on the 5 o’clock news. In FEATURE, we explore the Pandora’s box of questions raised by what we know of the winner’s identity.

The weather outside may be frightful, but that’s not about to stop a burlesque boss like Holly Dai from baring (nearly) all in pursuit of the perfect slow reveal. In CULTURE, we talk to the Portland-based performer about why she sticks with a classic approach to the fast-evolving art form.

Though recreational marijuana is now legal in Oregon, it can still be hard to find a place to smoke the stuff. The law precludes smoking in “public,” lawmakers aren’t pursuing cannabis cafes, and landlords are still free to ban pot on their properties. In SMOKE SIGNALS, we take a look at the challenges created by the law and how other states are handling it.

Common areas open to all is fundamental to democracy. We are fortunate to have two common democratic spaces in downtown Bend: Troy Field and the Bend Public Library. The claim that the Bend School District needs to sell Troy Field, our resource, is simply an attempt to justify austerity for citizens and enrichment for the wealthy. Much more politically expedient than taxing the rich, of course. Did anyone consider using Troy Field for affordable housing or building a shelter with toilets and water for the homeless or a tent city for the homeless? Any community that can afford a triple bypass—twice!—on the river and an ice skating rink for the privileged can certainly afford to fund public education. What’s next, they privatize the schools and library? So what will it be? Troy Field as a resource for the common good and democracy or austerity and privatization to enrich the wealthy? —Sue Bastian

HEALTHY CLIMATE BILL DESERVES SUPPORT In light of the recent international agreement on climate change, I am writing in support of an upcoming bill in the Oregon legislature to help transition from the agreement to meaningful action. Others have written about the local consequences of climate change that will only worsen if we do nothing. While this is important and motivating information, I would like to present the optimistic side of this issue. The Healthy Climate bill would showcase Oregon as taking a leadership role in combating climate change. Oregon has already passed legislation supporting clean energy development. There is much more we need to accomplish and this bill, by pricing carbon, would be the next crucial step. Oregon has an opportunity to show the country that we are ready to lead the way towards a healthier future.

SPECIAL EDUCATION FUNDING AT RISK IN OREGON In Oregon, nearly 12,000 children with disabilities or developmental delays qualify for early intervention (from birth to age 3) and early childhood special education (ages 3 to 5) services funded by the state. These children need immediate help, but funding hasn’t kept up with demand. Oregon is at risk of a lawsuit if services aren’t improved. I applaud John Rexford, superintendent at the High Desert Education Service District and Rob Saxton, former Oregon School Chief, for working with lawmakers to get the $5.4 million currently needed and an additional $15-$20 million long term. Those of us who are concerned for the well-being of these precious youngsters, must add our voices to the funding push.

IN REPLY TO “TOP THEATRE PERFORMANCES IN 2015” (12/30) It is shocking to me that after only a cursory acknowledgement of Volcanic Theatre Pub’s (VTP) contribution to Bend’s live theatre scene, none of its performances were even mentioned in this list. In fact, after a quick exchange with the owner, Derek Sitter, I found that no one from VTP was even asked for an opinion. VTP’s exclusion is at worse negligent and at best idiotic. I assumed from the start that this article was written to allow people affiliated with local theatres to give themselves a pat on the back (minus Will Futterman, who actually managed to compliment his rival theatre and Lylli J. von Hurst, who is listed simply as an avid theatre-goer), so I wasn’t expecting much in the way of honest critiques. But I would think it would be common courtesy to give each theatre an equal opportunity to “toot their own horn.” And as for the Source, instead of excluding the only professional theatre in our community that is producing art, I would like to see you start celebrating the fact that we have a director/actor the caliber of Derek Sitter who is willing to continue producing plays for the edification of a community in dire need of his expertise.

SOURCE GIVES VOICE TO RACISM In reference to Brent Howk’s letter published 12/24/15, we don’t know which disgusted us more, the writer’s racist comment or the fact that the Source printed a letter expressing such a prejudicial statement.

Troy Field is a community resource to serve all the community, not just the privileged few who want to privatize our commons for their profit.

The Healthy Climate bill will also support many local established businesses and encourage additional investment in the renewable energy sector of our economy. There are already many Central Oregon businesses that do everything from installing solar panels to conducting energy audits to insulating our buildings. There are also local projects as well as programs through Central Oregon Community College that are involved in our renewable energy economy. The Healthy Climate bill would encourage additional projects, support more jobs and help grow this sector of our economy. Please join me in supporting this bill. Talk with your friends, neighbors and legislators and encourage them to add their voices behind this legislation.

his land is your land, this land is my land.” The self-styled “militia” that initiated an armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge near Burns seems to be misinterpreting the meaning of Woody Guthrie’s classic American folk song, “This Land (Was Made for You & Me).” Rather than suggesting that America’s natural landscapes belong to individual interests—as the protesters holed up at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge seem to believe—Guthrie promotes free and open access to public lands. And while the occupation, led by brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy—sons of embattled rancher Cliven Bundy, who made headlines during a heated standoff with law enforcement over his refusal to pay leasing fees for the federal land on which his cattle graze—say they are protesting government over-reach and land grabbing, they are committing the very acts they object to. The occupation, and the peaceful protest that preceded it, have been billed as objections to the mandatory minimum sentences handed down to local ranchers Dwight and Steve Hammond, who were convicted of intentionally setting fire to public lands, putting some 139 acres out of commission for two years. But the statements and actions of those gathered near Burns make clear that they are motivated more by paranoia and a sense of entitlement than patriotism. Even groups that support their larger aims are distancing themselves from the protesters.

The Hammonds, the Oath Keepers, the Mormon Church, the people of neighboring Burns and Hines—all have made a point to say that the armed militants do not speak for them. And whether or not that’s a heartfelt sentiment, it’s a wise one to promote, because the ultimate goal of the group is nothing less than the overthrow of the fed-

This is Not Your Land eral government. When the Bundys say that the 1.7 million acre Malheur National Forest should be handed over to “the people,” they don’t mean the public broadly, but rather a specific group of people seeking to profit off those lands—namely ranchers, loggers, and miners. So while the militants accuse the federal government of land grabbing, they are the ones trying to restrict the use of that public land. Still, it’s easy to see how the Bundy militia is succeeding in securing followers—and it’s worth noting that a large caravan gathered in Bend last Saturday before heading out to Burns for the peaceful protest. Ammon claims that the occupation seeks to get the people of Harney County—whose lives were, in many ways, upended by the recession and other economic forces—back to work. He says in a video recording that he wants to get “loggers back to logging, ranchers back to ranching and miners back to mining,” noting that the county has gone from one of the state’s richest to one of the poorest. To those rural Oregonians who have seen their fortunes fall due to the drying up of natural resource-related jobs, the prospect of again earning their living off the land is no doubt an appealing one. But in the end, it’s all smoke and mirrors. The land in question already belongs to the public, and if we’re really trying to return it to its rightful owners, the Paiute tribe already has first dibs. This uninvited occupation is a misguided attempt to win support for a losing proposition. But unfortunately, it’s not just the protesters who stand to suffer. As schools and government offices remain closed, and locals compare the action to a hostage situation, it’s clear that Bundy and friends are engaged in a selfish showdown that has little to do with the legitimate concerns of rural Oregonians.


SIDE NOTES New Start NEWS AWomen and Children’s Center aids women in need By Corinne Boyer

By Corinne Boyer 7


his week, The Shepherd’s House—a faithbased men’s homeless shelter—launched a program designed to help homeless women recover from addiction and abuse at its newly opened Women and Children’s Center. The new center will house five women who will participate in a three-month program that provides classes, counseling, and a caseworker to assist them depending on their needs. Gloria Hall has worked with homeless women and shelter programs for 25 years. She’s worked with similar populations of women before spending nine years in Seattle and working at a shelter in Tacoma and most recently in Portland. “It’s really fun to see them come in and relax and just get into a new way of living so after the three months, they can decide if they want to stay for the year (long) program,” Hall says. The Women and Children’s Center is currently using a conditional permit and Hall says they are waiting for the approval for 10 women to live in the new center. The optional yearlong program includes both education and rehabilitation components, and also assists women with skills necessary to help them find jobs and housing. Seeing women complete the program—which is divided into semesters—is one of the reasons Hall loves her job. “Every four months we celebrate what they’ve accomplished, and I have found that to be so good for the women because they have been told so often: you’re dumb, you’re stupid, you’ll never amount to anything, you need me, you can’t do this alone,” she says. “When they find out that they can and everybody is clapping for them (as their accomplishments are read)—it’s just amazing the transformation that can happen and they want to stay for the next semester.” A typical day for women at the center begins

at 9 am with a daily community meeting. Each day, two classes are held before and after lunch and there are also counseling and case management appointments.

says she has a dedicated support system of women who wanted to assist with the women’s center so they got together and sent out an email blast.

“The counselors also teach the classes about drug and alcohol issues and domestic violence issues. Most women—about 90 percent— have both issues that are homeless,” Hall says. Every program is individualized and depends on the needs of the women seeking help. “We’ve found over the long run that it’s really good to address both of those issues to help them stay clean and sober and safe after they leave our year program.”

“We let them know all of our needs and in over two weeks time, they completely furnished the house,” she says. “They brought in a lot of used furniture, but in good shape, and then we registered at Bed Bath & Beyond for kitchen and dining room stuff.”

The new center is not an emergency shelter, but Hall notes that women who are in need of a place to stay during the day with meals and access to showers can find those services at the Shepherd's House. Women interested in the programs offered at the new center can call to find out if there are any available spots. They are screened by phone and if accepted, they come in for a full intake with a case manager. “Today was the kickoff day for our program, so until today we’ve been bringing people in, getting the house furnished, getting all those things,” Hall says. It’s the culmination of a yearlong fundraising process. “We have a $50,000 matching fund that was set up for us recently that (has been) matched, plus like $7,000. So it’s $107,000 that we got,” she says. Hall adds that two churches have also stepped in and raised $17,000 each to help pay for the cost of the new center. The rent is approximately $2,500 per month and the salaries of the two staff members are also costs that are required to run the center. People in the Bend community also donated enough furniture to fill the new home. Hall

Hall says after receiving everything down to the last appliance, she realized they didn’t have any food and then started receiving food donations. “We are well stocked right now on food,” she says. “It’s been great to see how the community loves us and supports what we are doing— they just really care.” Hall has seen many women and shelters succeed. She kept track of the women at the Seattle mission and says 92 percent of those women maintained housing and haven’t had any substance abuse issues two years after completing the program. She says she’s been drawn to help homeless women and women experiencing domestic violence, drug, and alcohol issues. “I remember sitting in Arizona at a mission and thinking, you know, we need to have people that are older and maybe they have retired, that are willing to go wherever God leads us,” she recalls. Before moving to Bend to help start the women’s center, Hall and her husband were moving back to her home state of Texas, but Hall says someone in the community voluntarily paid her salary in order for her to stay to help start the center. “It’s just fun to see lives changes and that’s what we do. We get to do that every day,” she says.

The Oregon Supreme Court did not consider an appeal filed against the expansion of the OSU-Cascades campus, according to an OSU-Cascades statement. This “marks the fifth decision in support of OSU-Cascades’ site development plan for the 10-acre campus on Bend’s west side. An independent hearings officer, the Bend City Council, the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals and the Oregon Court of Appeals all previously ruled in favor of the plan,” the statement noted. OSU began construction on the campus in June and is planning for construction to be completed by fall 2016. The City of Bend announced two openings on the Bend Accessibility Advisory committee. The City is accepting applications for the positions which involve advising the city on designing programs, activities, and services which are accessible by Bend citizens. The City Manager appoints committee members which will serve a two-year term. People can submit their applications until 5 pm on Friday, March 11 to Bend City Hall. Call 541-3885505 for more information. CIVIC MEETING A regular Bend City Council meeting will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 6 at 7 pm at Bend City Hall, 710 NW Wall Street.

On Jan. 2, armed men and women took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County, according to a statement from the Oregon State Police. No employees were on site when the refuge was broken into, according to an update released by the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The Guardian and the Associated Press reported that the armed individuals said they plan to stay indefinitely. “These men came to Harney County claiming to be part of militia groups supporting local ranchers, when in reality these men had alternative motives to attempt to overthrow the county and federal government in hopes to spark a movement across the United States,” said Harney County Sheriff David Ward in a statement. The statement also warns people to stay away from the refuge and if any of the individuals are seen, the police should be contacted. As the situation continues to develop, several organizations are working with law enforcement to resolve the dispute. Ward’s statement also warns people not to approach any individuals currently occupying the refuge.

M.M. won the $6.4 million prize in the Oregon Megabucks game after purchasing a lottery ticket through the website, which was then bought over the counter in Oregon on behalf of the player, scanned into his account, and kept in a safe.

“The’s agent turned the ticket over to my private investigator who brought it to me, and then I put it in a safe deposit box, and then when the winner arrived, we executed transfer of property documents and audio taped and video tapped the transfer into his possession,” says Riddell. “And when I went to the lottery office with the winner, I showed them where the ticket was bought, and who bought it, and him signing it over to my agent who signed it over to me, and I signed it over to the winner.”

“I was driving in my car, I was going to the bank,” he told them, “so I get a call from the Lotter, from a great person Christine, and she told me the great news, so I was in shock!” However, the Oregon Lottery website did not publish a press release about the Megabucks winner, and it also states that winners cannot remain anonymous, explaining that “Oregon citizens have a right to know that Lottery prizes are indeed being awarded to real persons.” But Roberts says that’s not a concern in this case, and that public records law allows for exceptions.

“It’s just like if you say to a friend who is going to buy a lottery ticket, ‘Hey pick one up for me’— there’s no law against that.”

In the photo, M.M. looks neither happy nor sad. That’s because his face is covered by a round mask bearing thelotter. com’s logo and “$6.4 million” in large print. Only his eyes are visible, but they—like his name on the ceremonial check—are blurred to keep his identity a secret. The Iraqi man requested anonymity and according to Oregon Lottery Director Jack Roberts, the winner -Jack Roberts feared for his safety back home. Though Oregon law makes lottery winners’ come to Oregon and claim his prize, thelotter. names public, Roberts decided to comply with com explained in a Dec. 20 release, “he needed Riddell says he can’t provide further information about the process or the winner because the man’s request. a bit of time to get a visa to enter the United the Lotter was very strict on what he can and States.” “I spent a lot of time talking to him and basicannot say.

“There’s no specific provision that says lottery winners shall be made public,” he explains. “The general principle of Oregon public records law is you have to disclose unless there’s growing public interest or there’s compelling private interest that outweighs the public’s interest of disclosure, and the courts have set that at a very high bar.” Roberts said it took several days to make sure the Oregon Lottery wasn’t violating any laws by paying the unconventional ticket. “We did all the other background, so we went to the terrorism task force, we went to Interpol, we did all that stuff to make sure that there was no other connection that we could find that he was trying to hide,” Roberts says, adding that the Department of Justice could challenge his decision to keep the winner anonymous if it wanted to. “Now the DOJ

has looked at it, and they’ve told me that they believe in this case there’s sufficient basis for justifying not disclosing it.” After being thoroughly vetted, M.M. agreed to take annuity payments over the next 25 years, which is $256,000 annually before taxes—according to the Lotter website.



“He was willing to trust in the system enough to take it over 25 years, which is better for the particular Megabucks ticket that he bought— that’s better economic decision—but that also showed that he wasn’t trying to cash in and get away with something,” Roberts says.

The Loophole It’s not just the winner’s country of residence, or his request for anonymity, that make M.M.’s win remarkable. Oregon law prohibits online gambling, and M.M.’s ticket was purchased through a website. The Oregon Lottery website explains that “internet wagering is a complex issue involving both state and federal law, as well as a number of regulatory, technological and security challenges.” The Lotter—which is officially based in the United Kingdom, but is registered in Belize and processes credit card payments in Cypress—is a global company, offering its services in 15 languages. The site advertises that people can purchase lottery tickets online for 49 different games in the United States, United Kingdom, Europe, South Africa, Brazil and several other countries. The Lotter also says it doesn’t keep any of the prize money earned from winning tickets; instead, it charges a small fee when tickets are purchased over its website. For example, a Powerball ticket with three sets of numbers costs $15 as

opposed to a $3 over-the-counter purchase at a lottery retailer. Roberts says people outside of the country who wanted to purchase tickets in Asia have approached the Oregon Lottery, but this is the first time in the history of the Oregon Lottery that someone outside the country has won. “We looked at the law and said we can’t knowingly and consciously do that—we’d have to change our rules and change our laws,” Roberts says. “And then we found out that some people weren’t waiting for that, they just found a way apparently around it. I guess they are making it work.” Before the Iraq-based winner emerged, Roberts says he didn’t know sites like the Lotter existed, but recently learned that New York State had a similar experience with an online winner. The Oregon Lottery took a similar approach by waiting to check out how the ticket was purchased. “They are selling an interest in a ticket,” he says. “So the ticket itself never left the state of Oregon—it was purchased by someone here in Oregon.” Roberts says federal laws restrict the interstate sales of lottery tickets because of differences in state gambling laws. “Different states allow it and don’t allow it,” he explains. “And so you’re just supposed to just sell in state, and you’re not supposed to be doing this over the internet.” But because of the physical purchase of the lottery ticket by someone in a store, Roberts says it’s similar to buying a lottery ticket for

a friend. “So we looked at it and said, technically, this doesn’t appear to violate that because they’re not buying a physical ticket, no one is sending a ticket [to Iraq]—they are arranging for someone else to buy a ticket on their behalf within the state,” Roberts says. “It’s just like if you say to a friend who is going to buy a lottery ticket, ‘Hey pick one up for me’—there’s no law against that.” Roberts also explained that the winner’s Kurdish background could also present a problem if his name was made public in Baghdad. “Kurds are a minority who have been subject to not only the war and the things on there but they have both Iraq, Iran, and the Turks who don’t want the Kurds to establish their own homeland in the northern part of Iraq,” he says. “His family—they’re in business— and they are somewhat prominent people, that’s why he said the name would mean something back there.”

believing they have a winning ticket and they are going to get paid, they’re not going to get hassled, they’re not going to try to get out of it,” Roberts says. “We were just trying to make sure we weren’t violating any other laws by paying this off.” When asked about whether the anonymity rules listed on the lottery’s website would be revised after the instance of the Iraqi winner, Roberts says that it’s unlikely. “As far as changing the language on our website, I think we’ll need to discuss this issue more fully with the Oregon Attorney General’s office to determine if such a change is necessary or appropriate,” he says. “Certainly this recent situation is based on an extremely unusual factual situation that is unlikely to recur.”

In the Future Because this is the first time a winning ticket had been purchased through an online service, extra care was taken when the money was awarded. “We weren’t looking for a way to get out of paying. The lottery works on the basis of people

House Concerts in the Glen return with Beth Wood By Jared Rasic


ouse concerts, while still definitely a thing, have transformed over the years. They tend to be slapped together at the last second with subpar sound and an audience that is more interested in getting digits than actually listening to the artist. House Concerts in the Glen is after something different altogether. It is about a warm and cozy house giving audiences an intimate venue to discover an eclectic array of new and established artists. Even the contribution you make at the door goes directly to the artists as opposed to the purchase of a red plastic cup at other house parties. In the summer, the shows are outside in the garden with a potluck or BBQ; in the winter there is a fire pit. Host Joan Mann has lived in Bend for more than 30 years and has been a longtime supporter of the arts and the Sisters Folk Festival in particular. She has hosted close to 50 of these house concerts since 2011 and is nowhere near done. The upcoming artist for the winter Concert in the Glen is Beth Wood, a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter from Portland. But she hasn’t always hailed from up north. “I’ve been a full time touring singer songwriter for 18 years,” she tells the Source. Wood will release her 10th album this spring. “I started playing piano when I was 5. Took classical piano and violin lessons all growing up, started singing in the choir. I went to college in North Carolina for voice and piano, studied for two years, and discovered the classical world was not a good fit for me. I got my degree in literature at University of Texas-Austin, joined a band, and never looked back!” Wood’s voice is crisp and sublime and her guitar work is memorable without being flashy. While she is also accomplished on the piano, the guitar is what truly represents artistic freedom to her since she trained herself on it. Playing the shows at The Glen is a much different experience for someone who started out playing in bars. “I love playing intimate venues like house concerts,” says Wood. “It is more up-close and personal, and requires some getting used to. It’s a totally different experience. At house concerts, people come to listen, and it is wonderful to play for folks who are interested in stories and lyrics. It is two-way sharing, an energy exchange that is pure magic to me.”

That magic that Wood feels is a huge reason why she isn’t just a musician or an artist, but a true storyteller in the oldest school sense of the word. When she goes to concerts, she loves to hear the stories behind the songs because getting to know the artist and how they think and feel is a huge part of the experience for her. Wood says the most gratifying aspect of playing music is “seeing someone being vulnerable, walking in nature, connecting with others and their stories, experiencing an artist’s unique expression.” The House Concerts in the Glen aren’t just a way for people to eat good food and listen to musicians they might not have heard. It’s about connection and finding the pieces in ourselves and others that make us a community. Wood describes it best, saying it is a “relaxed night of story and song, a few shared laughs and perhaps a few tears, and a warm and welcoming group of music-loving folks.”

HAUNTED SUMMER Soft psych with ethereal lead vocals should warm you up on these cold nights. Their sound spins around you like a gossamer web of sonic vibrations pinning your ears to their original and unbelievable melodies. See these guys and understand what true originality sounds like. 8pm. Sunday, Jan. 10. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $8.

WHISKEY SHIVERS WITH WOEBEGONE AND ACOUSTA NOIR Whiskey Shivers puts on one of the highest energy shows you will ever see, bluegrass or otherwise. They shove a punk rock edge right into the mouth of their deep country sound, making one of their shows not only a truly singular experience, but one that will be impossible to forget... no matter how much whiskey you’ve had. 8 pm. Friday, Jan. 8. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $10.

Dance like no one’s watching. 9pm. Tuesday, Jan. 12. M&J Tavern, 102 NW Greenwood Ave. No cover.

CULTURE Hold On To Your Pasties

Holly Dai brings classic burlesque to Bend

By Corinne Boyer

By Jared Rasic 23


fter 9/11, muralist and fine artist Nicole Fontana says it was difficult to travel with oil paints—due to their chemical compounds—so while studying abroad in Venice, she began working with an alternative medium. “That’s when I started making collages. I used mailers and started collaging out of a budget issue,” she explains.

Burlesque doesn’t even remotely care about whether we are offended or titillated. Most burlesque dancers are artists, activists, writers, filmmakers, and dreamers who are comfortable in their own skin and using those skills to create a singular experience. They have made the act of taking their clothes off into an art form—a sexy and empowering art form.

Fontana studied at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn where she earned her teaching degree and majored in painting and minored in art history. After graduating, she worked for a faux finishing company as a painter, and after a few months of working for a boss she disliked, decided to start her own company.

TEASE is a burlesque review, bringing the finest burlesque performers from Portland to our doorstep. There will be beautiful men and women taking off their clothes in fun and interesting ways, but if this is offensive to you, there is sure to be a marathon of NCIS on one network or another.

“I’m lucky enough to have parents who are supportive—they are both academics so they told me if I wanted to become an artist, to study it in the best way possible,” she says. She started her own painting company in Brooklyn and then returned to her hometown of Las Vegas. That’s when Fontana was commissioned to paint murals.

In anticipation of TEASE’s return to Bend, we chatted with Holly Dai, a Portland-based performer who will grace the Volcanic’s stage with her dazzling disrobing. Dai is also headmistress of All that Glitters Burlesque Academy, as well as a producer of Papermoon Cabaret and the Oregon Burlesque Festival.

“Within the past five years, I’ve had the freedom to cater my business towards kids’ rooms,” Fontana says. “They’re fun loud, creative, colorful and have a lot more lasting meaning behind them.”

Holly Dai: I’m an internationally awarded performer and I have been performing burlesque since 2009. I was introduced by a friend in Seattle in 2008 who had me assist a show. After a year of being stage kitten I moved to Portland where no one was really doing too much burlesque and I felt like I was ready to give it a try. SW: What appeals to you the most about it? HD: Doing burlesque is like creating a whole new persona. I really love being glitz and glamor. I’m really drawn to the old-school Vegas showgirl and I try to create that with my classic numbers. I also make all of my costumes, and creating numbers to match fulfills my creative nature. SW: What can someone who has never attended expect from the TEASE show? How does it differentiate itself from a typical burlesque show? HD: Expect to have a fantastic time. It is a bit of striptease. But people don’t remember THAT you stripped, they remember HOW. I’m also proud to say that two of the performers are my students, and the other re-

cently joined me in a festival in New Zealand. SW: Do you like the more modern style of burlesque? The edgier and more punk style, or are you drawn to the jazzier and softer side? HD: The first that you mentioned is probably what is referred to more as neo burlesque. The latter being classic. I’m definitely more of a classic performer, I like to honor the traditional side. I also personally find that neo burlesque can be blasé. Putting on some lingerie and dancing to a punk song is not my cup of tea. I like to see more effort in every aspect, from the shoes, to the costume, to the hair, to the performance, and to the interaction with the audience. I have seen some fantastic neo performances. I think it uses all those aspects, but I think sometimes people get away with indifference more when they do neo burlesque. SW: Where do you think the indifference comes from?

HD: Part of it is probably just being uneducated and seeing something vaguely before and thinking I can do it. I teach classes and have students who sometimes choose to do neo but they develop the concept more because I emphasize researching and not relying on props to connect. Again, not all neo is like that and this is only my personal opinion. I also think sometimes there’s a disconnect on the reasons why people do things. If they’re performing for themselves and as a way to build self-confidence, I think it translates as indifferent. When you perform for an audience and you love your audience, they will love you back and then you feel that self-confidence without acting arrogant.

TEASE Burlesque Revue 8 pm, Saturday, Jan. 9 Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $12-$15

Fontana’s mural work has appeared in commercial spaces as well. Her work also includes acrylic and oil paintings and on a recent trip to Greece and Italy she turned her photographs into collages. Fontana draws inspiration for her collages from hikes around the Pacific Northwest and says Bend is gorgeous. “I like the medium because its renewable. I reuse materials and I’m not creating more,” she says. “I use texture and color patterns to represent an image. It adds a whimsical touch to a photo—it’s really a labor of love.” Fontana is now collaborating with Stereo Planet to paint the new Shepherd’s House Women’s & Children’s shelter and says they think that adding a personal touch to the shelter will make people feel more at home. Fontana’s collages and prints will be featured and available for purchase at Lost Season Supply Company during First Friday in February.

VOLUME 20 ISSUE 01 / January 7, 2016 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY


merica is weird. On television and in films, it seems entirely more acceptable to show violence and murder than it is to show a naked body or consenting adults making love. Network stations will edit Kate Winslet’s side boob in Titanic, but on CSI you can see a decomposing body in a bathtub be removed with a water pitcher. Now, this isn’t an argument about whether said violence warps the minds of America’s youth (short answer: If they can’t tell fantasy from reality there are bigger problems than TV going on), but whether America’s old-school Puritanical lizard brain is somehow still in control of our modern society.

The Porch in downtown Sisters offers tasty comfort food served in a warm atmosphere. Photos courtesy of The Porch.


ocated in downtown Sisters, The Porch presents the image of a country cottage with a quaint and rustic motif. The property itself is open and inviting, with a well-groomed floral arrangement, and an actual front porch with a seating area. That cozy countenance turns out to be fair advertising for what’s inside—a homey, warm, and comforting ambiance. With hardwood floors throughout, the dining area is partitioned into multiple sections, with the bar located in the middle of the restaurant. The interior design and menu reinforce a traditional, home-cooked dining experience that flirts with new school gastronomic influences. “My vision,” says owner and head chef Jon Hosler, “is to have a local establishment that is comprised of a passionate and dedicated staff who are invested in the restaurant. And who can serve a delectable and versatile selection of culinary delights.” And while Hosler and staff are working daily to make that vision ever more palatable, to





date, they have been successful in creating a destination dining location with a number of affable culinary attributes.

Central Oregon, actually. And the meat was sourced from one of Central Oregon’s local producers.

While there during a recent dinner with a friend, we were served a plethora of comfort food classics with a contemporary twist.

Finally, we topped it off with dessert, landing on the crème brûlée with a macadamia nut garnish. The custard presented with a pleasantly toasted sugary surface, which textured the dish with a delectable juxtaposition of layers. And the macadamias were a nice sweet and savory accoutrement.

We started off with drinks: A gin and tonic— with the gin locally sourced from Oregon Spirit Distillers—and a pint of Calico amber ale from Ballast Point brewery. And we snacked on steamed clams while sipping. Next, our entrées arrived. The first was a seafood pot pie, which actually ended up being more like a seafood stew, served with a flaky puff pastry on top. The tasty concoction was loaded with scallops, smoked salmon, shrimp, and an assortment of veggies served in a savory and light cream sauce. The second entrée was a special of the night: New York strip steak, served with blue cheese potato mashers and mixed veggies. The steak was cooked medium-well done, and to near perfection. It was one of the better steak experiences in

Several Oregon breweries are already making waves in 2016.

IT’S ONLY JUST BARELY 2016. THE GROCERY STORES STILL HAVEN’T CLOSED OUT ALL THEIR RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER DVDS. BUT ALREADY THE BEER SCENE’S ABUZZ WITH ACTIVITY AROUND BEND AND BEYOND. FOR EXAMPLE: OBLIVION SHUTS DOWN ITS BREWPUB. The tap house and restaurant that replaced Westside Café & Bakery along NW Galveston has now itself closed after seven months. Not due to lack of business, given how hard it often was to seat four there on a Saturday night, but—according to the Bulletin—a mutual agreement between the three-person partnership that ran the brewpub. It all seems sudden, given that there’s still an outdoor patio area under construction behind the building. This doesn’t affect Oblivion Brewing itself at all, however, and offerings like Backside IPA and Road Ryder Red—the beer that developed into their flagship during the pub’s short career—will still be available across Central Oregon. (And maybe beyond, too, as brewers Darin and Meghann Butschy focus more on distribution.) What’s replacing the tasting room on Galveston, though? The building owners aren’t saying, but multiple industry folks told the Source that Sunriver Brewing Co. plans to open a Bend taproom in the spot. That’d be the best of both worlds—Sunriver can get more exposure for its (quite good) beer lineup, and

lazy Bendites don’t have to drive all the way down to the brewery to try them out.

KOBOLD BREWING DEBUTS. Central Oregon’s 29th brewery (depending on how you count them) is Kobold, owned and operated by veteran homebrewer Steve Anderson. He’s built a 600-square-foot brewhouse on his property in northwest Bend, housing a two-barrel system he’s using to produce ales and lagers. On tap at Platypus Pub a bit ago was Lawful Evil, a bourbon barrel-aged stout that surprised many who tried it—full-flavored and woody without hitting you over the head with booze. Barrel aging is one of Anderson’s main focuses with Kobold, and it’ll be fun to see what else he comes up with as the year unfolds.

ANCESTRY BREWING’S ROADSHOW. One of the most ambitious Oregon brewery openings this year is undoubtedly Ancestry, which has a 10-barrel brew system set up in Tualatin and plans for a separate taproom in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland. Bend’s on their radar, though, and founder Jeremy Turner (who worked for Kulshan Brewing in Bellingham, Washington, before this) brought his beers around Platypus earlier for a meet-and-greet before Ancestry’s official opening. The offerings—including a Citra-infused session IPA and roasty oatmeal stout on nitro—were all solid, although it may take more than that to stand out in a scene as crowded as Portland’s. Keep an eye out for official distribution when it begins in early ’16.

OUTSIDE Canyonland Conservation

Diverse groups work toward consensus on Owyhee

GO HERE By Brian Jennings


By Brian Jennings

Organizers hope to hear all voices concerning the future of the Owyhee Canyonlands. Photos by Tim Davis, Friends of the Owyhee.


ne of Oregon’s strongest attractions is its outdoor environment. The state has it all—a rugged coastline, a fertile valley, snowcapped mountains, and an expansive desert. Much of the landscape is federally owned, which means that the people own it and can recreate on it. In fact, more than half of Oregon’s landmass is maintained by the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). While there are many efforts to protect and conserve a number of regions statewide, one effort has risen to the top—the Owyhee Canyonlands, managed by the BLM in remote southeastern Oregon.

As a representative of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, Findling drives thousands of miles through the region meeting with local residents and sportsmen’s groups including the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership and Trout Unlimited to find “a common ground and voice” for sportsmen’s needs in the area. Findling says that the region contains some of the best habitat in the west for Sage Grouse, along with elk and mule deer, pronghorn

Organizations dedicated to the conservation of backcountry lands have proposed a massive 2.5 million acre conservation effort that would permanently protect the Canyonlands and, as 2016 unfolds, are hopeful that Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley will sponsor legislation designating much of this unique landscape as wilderness. Attaining wilderness designation is not an easy thing to do and usually takes years of meetings to reach a consensus that involves much local input. To say that the Owyhee Canyonlands wilderness proposal has met stiff resistance and skepticism is an understatement. At a recent public meeting in Adrian, dozens of local citizens and ranchers voiced strong opposition to the proposal, citing concerns about their ability to use the land as they have for generations. Karl Findling of Bend is working to engage sportsmen and women in an effort to ensure that the sportsman’s voice is heard and represented in the discussion. Findling is a native Oregonian who has fished, hunted, and hiked Eastern Oregon his whole life. Born in Ontario, Findling knows the Owyhee and has a special fondness for the region. As a youngster, he caught his first fish in the Owyhee. He harvested his first deer and elk in the region. As a young adult, he helped fight wildfires for the BLM.

antelope, bighorn sheep herds, and native Redband trout. But some residents and ranchers are concerned about losing grazing access. “There’s a lot of misinformation about what wilderness or other conservation designations mean,” Findling says. Grazing rights will be grandfathered into permanent protection, he explains, and public access will be protected as well. He says the Canyonlands have to be protected long term. “It’s a grand place. It’s one of the largest and last unprotected regions in Oregon that needs and deserves permanent conservation.”

Appearing at a recent town hall meeting in Redmond, Senator Ron Wyden encouraged conservation organizations to continue to build support for the Owyhee proposal. Citing the Mt. Hood Wilderness designation of 2009, Wyden says it took more than 100 meetings to reach consensus before legislation was introduced and passed. He told his audience that, by coming to the table and engaging in collaborative meetings, “not everyone gets everything they want, but everyone gets something.” Travel Oregon, which helps market Oregon as a tourist destination, says that the economic impact of public lands can’t be dismissed. According to the state agency, public lands support over 100,000 jobs in Oregon and contribute approximately $10 billion to the state economy. Headwaters Economics of Montana also studies the economics of public lands. According to this group, the closer a rural community is to public lands, the better the economy. These reports are not lost on Sen. Wyden who has a strong record of promoting and protecting public lands which he calls “Oregon Treasures.” While many are hoping that Senators Wyden and Merkley will introduce legislation to permanently protect the Owyhee Canyonlands, others point out that permanent protection can also be accomplished more quickly and easily with a Presidential Executive Order designating the region as a National Monument. President Obama has created several National Monuments in recent years. The Owyhee Canyonlands could be the next.

With the holidays behind us, ample snow in the mountains, and perhaps a new (or even old) camera in hand, there are a few upcoming seminars and lectures that may enhance your outdoor photographic skills. And, the winter skies also present an excellent opportunity to gaze at the sun, moon, and stars.



Float Like This

Of hummingbirds and butterflies By Jim Anderson




hile you were in the teeth-rattling -10 temperatures last week, Sue and I were basking in the balmy warmth of Las Vegas, Nevada.

you’d like to see them.” Did I ever! I had it in my head that ALL the monarchs of the western flyway were basking in the warmth of the preserves in California by now, safe from winter, and slurping nectar from the various flowers along the coast.

(No, I don’t gamble, but yes, we did go into downtown Vegas for an evening of enjoying the arts—no, not the strip clubs, but the exceptional Titanic exhibit for one—and had a wonderful time. That said, I have had it up to here with wall-to-wall humanity and am happy to be home.)

Not so, as I discovered when Sheila took me down the elevator of the museum and out into a small demonstration garden. “There’s our milkweed,” she said, pointing, “and right at the top there’s a caterpillar feeding on a clump of blossoms.”

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving time with friends and family. My grandson Connor also entertained us with his unbelievable dexterity while flying his Vortex drone. His breath taking snap rolls, instant climb to 400 ft AGL, and then spit-second drop to ground level was an education in aerobatics. I have no problem seeing him following his dad’s skills at flying an F-16.

To begin with, I thought she was imaging things. All I could see was a clump of green stalks sticking up about knee-high, but without a single leaf, and a small lump of white at the top. “That’s milkweed?” I asked incredulously. With that, Sheila stepped off the trail and pointed to the obvious monarch caterpillar chomping away at the bundle of blossoms atop the stalk. “Yep, here’s the caterpillar.”

(To think these flying events all started with Ross — just out of diapers — and his brother, Dean strapped into the backseat of my old ‘46 Piper Cub, when they discovered what the stick would do to the Cub when pulled back and thrust forward.)

What an education I got from there on out! Not only did we see one caterpillar, but as we searched more we found several more caterpillars in different ages, all alive, healthy and stuffing milkweed blossoms down their gullet.

Excellent cuisine, old hangar flying, and lots of pinochle were also the stuff of wonderful memories, as was the male Costa’s hummingbird in the backyard, and touring some of the splendid natural history haunts of the Sin City neck-of-the-woods. All week long that territorial Costa’s chased every hummingbird that had the nerve to invade its territory scurrying for cover, and he was relentless. As those of us know who have feeders up for hummers here in summer, our resident rufus, calliope, and occasional Allen’s are of the same frame of mind, chasing one another around like the fighter jets my son Ross watches over. Even with the below-freezing nights, that hardy Costa’s lad was back to watch over HIS feeders by 11 am. Hummingbirds have that awesome ability to go into a stupor when the temperature drops to freezing and below. Some, like Allen’s, calliope, Costa’s, rufus and others, can lower their body temperature, heartbeat, and breathing rate below normal and literally go to sleep—some for as long as three days—to avoid suffering in the cold.

The Clark County Wetlands Park provides lush habitats for more than 300 species of plants and animals while improving the quality of the water supply. Recycled sewage water keeps it all going, and there’s so much to do there you could spend a week and not see it all. On one of the (many) nature trails in the park, Sue spotted a soft-shelled turtle sunning itself.

Male Costa’s hummingbird all dressed up and no place to go. Photo by Jim Anderson.

Then there were the monarch butterflies alive and well in the 2,900-acre Clark County Wetlands Park. What a wonderful surprise that was! As we were pulling into the parking lot, Sue surprised us all when she almost shouted, “Hey! There’s a monarch butterfly!” Sure enough, when we all got to looking, there it was, a fine adult monarch bouncing through the sky like it was the middle of summer.

Little did I know what was coming next. As we walked up into the Nature Preserve we were greeted by a museum that was perfect for getting to know what the park was all about. It was there that I met and had a great chin-wag with Sheila Glennie, program assistant for the park, who, when I asked about the monarch we saw flitting by, was not at all surprised and added, “I can show you some caterpillars if

Like the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council, Clark County Wetlands Park’s award-winning education programs teach youngsters and adults alike about local wildlife and the ecology of the Las Vegas Wash through engaging, interactive programs that promote a sense of place and a connection to nature. And then there’s another magnificent place to explore, The Valley of Fire, a geological wonderland. But you’ll have to go and see that one for yourself.

Tarantino Rides Again

The Hateful Eight shines in glorious 70mm By Jared Rasic 31 VOLUME 20 ISSUE 01 / January 7, 2016 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY


uentin Tarantino isn’t for everyone, obviously. Nor should he be, but his detractors are so furious in their disdain that it makes one wonder when he had the time to poop in their shoes. Everyone has their own reasons, but some of the more prevalent ones tend to be that his scripts are too wordy, that he’s just a genre mash-up artist ripping off the movies he grew up with, or that his distinct form of hyper-violence is somehow making the youth of America desensitized sociopaths. His eighth film, The Hateful Eight, might not win him any new fans, but it sure as hell shouldn’t lose him any old ones. This time, he is actually pulling something from his past not just to make a pastiche of other awesome films, but he is bringing back actual, honestto-god projection to the world in a limited number of cinemas. For a week before the film opened in wide release, Tarantino opened it on 70mm projectors across the country. For the historians, this is the first film to be shot in Ultra Panavision

70mm since Khartoum in 1966 and the first new film to be shown in 70mm in almost that long. Basically, 70mm is a wide high-resolution film that shows up much more stunningly crisp and tactile than 35mm. A majority of theaters can’t handle 70mm, so the ones that make the effort to project a film on 70mm tend to be the places run by true lovers of cinema and the lost art of projection. The Hollywood Theatre in Northeast Portland is not only a historic and magnificent marvel of architecture and design, but run by true cinephiles, so of course they were going to show it in 70mm (on the largest screen in the country)—and, of course, I was going to drive to Portland and see it. The Hollywood’s passion for cinema is clear. They care about film more than anything, so they care about the audience’s experience while watching it, something I found to be depressingly refreshing. This shouldn’t be a singular treat, this should be the norm.

The film itself is magnificent. It’s an Agatha Christie mystery combined with John Carpenter’s The Thing and directed by Howard Hawks, but with dialogue so electric the audience savors every word. This is easily one of Tarantino’s best scripts and gives Samuel L. Jackson’s wicked bounty hunter Major Marquis Warren, Kurt Russell’s equally wicked bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth, Jennifer Jason Leigh’s animalistic fugitive Daisy Domergue, and Walton Goggins’ ex-militiaman Chris Mannix an embarrassment of riches. When these four characters arrive at Minnie’s Haberdashery in front of a blizzard, they are certain at least one of the other lodgers is there to spring Domergue. What happens next is a master class in the execution of tension and how to raise it one word at a time.

on display, not as a judgment, but as a signpost to an American thirst for bloodshed. There are some heady ideas in here if the audience is willing to look past the easy thrills to find them.

The film is violent as hell but with a genuine critique of said violence beneath the surface. It’s almost as if he is daring the audience to laugh at some of the horrifying acts of cruelty

Dir. Quentin Tarantino Grade: ANow Playing at The Hollywood Theatre in Portland and Old Mill Stadium 16


The Hateful Eight sits comfortably in the middle of Tarantino’s filmography as being better than the Kill Bill films, Death Proof, and Django Unchained, but not quite up to the lasting power of Reservoir Dogs, Inglourious Bastards, Pulp Fiction, and Jackie Brown. But this is a film that will grow over time and over multiple viewings. If Tarantino is really still planning on retiring after 10 films, then American cinema will be less for his absence.

The Hateful Eight

A nature doc from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (which means they know what they’re talking about). We spent a lot of time here at The Source in 2015 talking about the sagegrouse, and by cracky, we’re not done yet. They’re in danger. Learn about them before it’s too late.

An interesting look into the lives of the women married to sports coaches. A few couldn’t care less, but most also dedicate their lives to the sport their partners are so entrenched in, if for no other reason than getting to see them every once in awhile. Check this week’s issue for an interview with the director, Jonathan Moore.

It’s always good to see a classic Spielberg in an intimate room with friends and strangers. This one has Richard Dreyfuss as Roy Neary, a blue-collar guy who has a run in with a UFO and rapidly starts losing his marbles...or is he? Seating is limited so come early to this classic screening.

The Women Behind The Men Coaches’ Wives; a new look into an old subject By Jared Rasic



FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic THE BIG SHORT: The Big Short tells the story about the 2008 subprime home loans meltdown leading to the almost economic collapse of the country. With a cast featuring Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale and Steve Carell, the film is getting much more attention than it would otherwise. Grab some popcorn and prepare to be infuriated.

JOY: Another collaboration between the great David O. Russell and his dual muses Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.

DADDY’S HOME: Will Ferrell and Mark The inspiration for the film, Jonathan Moore's mother, Joanna, and father, Nelson Moore, who was the Lincoln County High School basketball coach.


he saying, “Behind every great man is a great woman,” is a cliché for a reason. While in 2015 the paradigm of the man working while the little lady stays home and raises the kids is outdated and insulting, it is still a choice some women today make. Specifically, the wives of men with careers that stretch much further than the typical 40 hours a week. In particular, the wives of sports coaches across the country who eat, live, and breathe their husband’s sport and raise their children. Directed by Jonathan Moore (and edited by his wife Karen, an associate director of “Last Call With Carson Daly”), Coaches’ Wives takes a look into the lives of these women whose struggles go unsung. Not that they are all miserable, put upon wives; all of them seem content and happy with their lives even if they had some trepidation at first. This documentary tells the story of several of these women: from wives of high school football coaches all the way to the wife of Phil Jackson, coach of the L.A. Lakers. Moore’s film is fascinating and insightful, a rare look into a different side of professional and amateur athletics. We chatted with him this week and learned just how personal the film was for him. Source Weekly: So, do you consider yourself a documentarian or are you into all the different levels of filmmaking? Jonathan Moore: I do both scripted and documentary films, so I don’t consider myself exclusively a documentarian, though docs seem to be what I’m doing more of these days. I’m attracted to documentaries because it’s a unique form of storytelling. SW: Do you find that it is a harder medium than narrative filmmaking? JM: Many people say that it’s much more difficult than scripted/narrative filmmaking because you don’t have nearly as much control over what you are doing. That’s true, but I find that I love the uncertainty and the raw unfolding of the story of a real person or persons. There’s really nothing like it. I know it sounds like some kind of artsy cliché, but I really do love people and I’m intensely curious about people, what makes them tick, what their lives are like. I haven’t always been aware of this, but once I moved to LA, started film

school all those years ago—I realized that I fit into the mold of a documentary filmmaker. Fundamentally, I just love good stories and telling good stories. I harbor no delusions of my own talent. Many of my own students are immensely more talented than I. But I do truly love what I do, and hopefully that comes through. SW: This seemed like a very personal story for you to tell. JM: Very much so. I don’t know that I had a lot of strong feelings about my mother and her life as a coach’s wife. In retrospect, I now see that she shielded me from a lot of what it was like. When I started thinking about this project, it originally was going to be something about being the son or daughter of a coach—which I am. In fact, my father was my high school basketball coach. But as I started really thinking about it and talking to others about that subject, I began to see where the mother and coach’s wife would often come up in the conversation. SW: And thus Coaches’ Wives was born? JM: I began to think about my own mother and a lot of things that I hadn’t really thought about before began to take shape in my mind based on what others had said about their own experiences with their mom or wife or whoever their coach’s wife was. It wasn’t long until I realized that THAT was my story. Finally, I talked to my mom a couple of times and she related to me the struggles, frustrations and sacrifices that she experienced back then— and I was surprised—and a little disappointed in myself, even, that I hadn’t caught on to some of that when I was younger. So, for me, there was no real difficulty in talking about the experiences with her or the other ladies. Personally, I was just so fascinated by it all that I enjoyed hearing about it. For a couple of the women that we interviewed, they found it to be almost cathartic—and cried off-camera after we were done talking to them. I am just blessed to have been able to talk to them, to hear truth coming from them and to know that we were telling their story.

Wahlberg face off for the love of children. Not all children across the world, but a couple of specific ones. That would be weird if they were after all kids. That would also be a completely different movie that wouldn’t be so popular. Don’t see that movie. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE DANISH GIRL: Eddie Redmayne plays Einar Wegener who dressed like a woman for one of his wife’s paintings and discovered who he truly was: a transgender woman. With her wife’s support, Einar breaks boundaries and fights to become Lii Elbe, the person that she is deep inside. Throwing in a love triangle might not be needed, but the trailers are gorgeous enough to warrant the film attention. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE GOOD DINOSAUR: While the trailers for this haven’t really been exceptional, Pixar so rarely disappoints that just having their name on it is enough to get most people into the theater. Especially following their alltime classic, Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur is coming at a time where dinosaur love is peaking. The animated film follows the journey of a dinosaur and his companion, a cave-man boy who acts like a dog. The jury is still out with this one. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE HATEFUL EIGHT: While you’ll have to drive to Portland to catch the film in 70mm, advanced reviews have this film locked as a must-see, regardless of the projection. Tarantino is definitely not for everyone, but if you’re already a fan then there is no way you’re missing him do a western homage to John Carpenter’s The Thing. I mean, I need to be viewing that immediately. THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAYPART 2: While it does feel like this series has been going forever, Mockingjay Part 2 should give the epic series a proper sendoff. As fans of the books know, this is part of the story where everything actually happens (unlike the completely event-free Part 1), so tissues should be held at the ready. This will also be Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s final screen appearance so, even if you don’t watch the movies, it will be worth seeing just to say goodbye. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

MACBETH: Really, there are only two things you need to know about this movie. One is that it is MACBETH!!! And two, Michael Fassbender is playing the titular character. Oh, and the incredible Marion Cotillard is playing Lady Mac. That’s three things, but you get the point. Fassbender+ Cotillard + Shakespeare = shut up and take my money. Tin Pan Theater.

POINT BREAK: Since it is actually impossible to improve upon perfection, this remake of the classic Patrick Swayze/Keanu Reeves vehicle seems like a pointless exercise in franchise greed. The trailers make the film look different enough from the original to possibly be worth a viewing, but there is still something sour about the entire enterprise. Old Mill Stadium & IMAX

THE REVENANT: From the visionary director of Birdman comes the movie that almost killed Leonardo DiCaprio multiple times. The Revenant tells the somewhat true tale of Hugh Glass, a frontiersman who gets super mauled by a bear and then ditched by his hunting team and left for dead. What follows is 150 minutes of revenge, followed by violence, followed by catharsis and then repeat until dry. Old Mill Stadium & IMAX ROOM: Based on the absolutely stunning novel, Room tells the story of what we must do to protect those that we love from the harshest of truths. Brie Larson is going to explode after this movie and become the next big thing. Go into it knowing as little as possible in order to let the film take you under its wing. Tin Pan Theater

SISTERS: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler playing sisters throwing a house party in their childhood home sounds like a pretty good recipe for a classic. With a supporting cast full of ringers like Ike Barinholtz, James Brolin, Samantha Bee, Jon Glaser, John Leguizamo, and Maya Rudolph means that even if the script isn’t great, it will still be worth a watch. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS: There is nothing for me to tell you. I don’t need to sell this movie to you. You already have your ticket. The line is long. The air is cold. Lightsaber fights in the parking lot are fun but discouraged. And all of it was worth it. A definite return to the magic of the original trilogy. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX.

ADVICE GODDESS Livid And Let Livid

—A Healthier Way Nothing like screaming obscenities into somebody’s face to get them to respond, “Gosh, I forgot how much I love you. And I really want to make all of those changes in myself.” Also, unlike a box of Cap’n Crunch, anger does not rapidly get used up. In fact, Charles Darwin observed that raging on will make you even…rage-ier. But thanks to Freud, people still believe that “venting” anger is a healthy way to reduce it. Not because he had actual evidence for that but because he said so and accessorized so credibly, with the cigar, the iconic eyewear, and the groovy Viennese fainting couch. One of the first modern researchers to debunk this myth (back in 1966) was Michael Kahn, then a Harvard grad student who’d actually hoped to demonstrate the benefits of venting anger. Posing as an aggressively rude medical technician, he made seriously insulting remarks while taking subjects’ blood pressure, making them really angry. As part of the study, some subjects were allowed to vent their anger to a researcher posing as Kahn’s supervisor. To Kahn’s surprise, those who did got angrier, and their already-elevated blood pressure took off toward strokesville. Some people will say, “I don’t care what the dumb research says; I feel better after I blow my lid.” Well, these people still experience all the ill effects of anger on their physical health. The relief they feel is emotional, coming out of how anger arises from the feeling that we’ve been treated unfairly. Raging back makes them feel that they’ve done something to right the balance. However, it also tends to provoke a defensive reaction in the person they’re raging at, so it’s a counterproductive tactic—assuming they weren’t aspiring to kick off 20 years of trench warfare in the condo commons.

The Speaky Wheel My girlfriend wants me to compliment her more—to notice how she looks and say something. I know I’m not Mr. Effusive. But honestly, if I didn’t find her hot, I wouldn’t even be with her! —Still Here! It may not come naturally to you to effuse, but civilization is all about doing what doesn’t come naturally. Note that chimps in the wild are rarely observed wearing shoes, ties, and cuff links. Many men complain that women’s idea of communicating what they want is hinting, pouting, or slamming drawers while insisting nothing’s wrong. You, however, have a woman who comes right out and tells you, “Here’s what you could do to make me happy,” and it doesn’t even involve risking jail time or going on a double date with her mother. Her simple request: When she’s, say, vacuuming in her new underwear and your jaw drops, run with that. Make it go up and down, and make words come out. Basically, the terrorism prevention line applies: “If you see something, say something.” Put a daily reminder on your phone if you have to. For added incentive, consider the fringe benefits. Research by social psychologist Sara Algoe finds that the stock-taking that goes into expressing appreciation for a romantic partner actually makes the person doing it feel more satisfied with the relationship. Not surprisingly, being appreciated seems to do the same for the recipient. And yes, you have to do the appreciating using the spoken word. Nonverbal creative alternatives are only (borderline) acceptable if you are a working mime or birthday party clown, and even then, there’s always something lost in translation with balloon animals.

The answer isn’t stuffing your anger; it’s expressing what’s behind it—in a civil discussion instead of a civil war. Controlling the body’s role in anger is an essential part of this. The problem is that surging adrenaline and other elements of the body’s anger response can’t just be thrown into reverse. So, when you feel anger brewing, it’s wise to take a step back—or to do as this woman did and step into another room. Keeping your cool allows you to present your case—your feeling hurt by somebody’s

You responded to a woman who was very proud of herself for leaving the room to compose herself when she got really angry with her boyfriend. It is very unhealthy to stuff your anger. Why would you give this terrible advice—encouraging her to keep holding back—instead of telling her to vent her anger?

behavior—in a way that evokes sympathy rather than defensiveness. This is important because sympathy tends to motivate us to do things to make hurting people feel better. This, in turn, bodes better for the future of a relationship—sexy as it can be when a man interrupts a woman’s rage-athon to whisper, “Baby, I don’t mean to turn you on, but that pulsating vein in your forehead looks like an arteriovenous fistula about to blow.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Centuries ago, lettuce was a bitter, prickly weed that no one ate. But ancient Egyptians guessed its potential, and used selective breeding to gradually convert it into a tasty food. I see 2016 as a time when you could have a comparable success. Look around at your life, and identify weed-like things that could, through your transformative magic, be turned into valuable assets. The process may take longer than a year, but you can set in motion an unstoppable momentum that will ensure success. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Imagine that a beloved elder has been writing down your life story in the form of a fairy tale. Your adventures aren’t rendered literally, as your waking mind might describe them, but rather through dreamlike scenes that have symbolic resonance. With this as our template, I’ll predict a key plot development of 2016: You will grow increasingly curious about a “forbidden” door—a door you have always believed should not be opened. Your inquisitiveness will reach such an intensity that you will consider locating the key for that door. If it’s not available, you may even think about breaking down the door.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): John Steinbeck won - Heal pain or Planter Fasciitis - Flat feet or Fallen arches - Ball of foot pain or Morton’s neuroma - Achilles tendonitis - Bunions - Back, Hip & Knee pain

the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962. His novel Of Mice and Men helped win him the award, but it required extra persistence. When he’d almost finished the manuscript, he went out on a date with his wife. While they were gone, his puppy Toby ripped his precious pages into confetti. As mad as he was, he didn’t punish the dog, but got busy on a rewrite. Later he considered the possibility that Toby had served as a helpful literary critic. The new edition of Of Mice and Men was Steinbeck’s breakout book. I’m guessing that in recent months you have received comparable assistance, Aries—although you may not realize it was assistance until later this year.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Remember back to what your life was like during the first nine months of 2004. I suspect that you fell just short of fulfilling a dream. It’s possible you were too young to have the power you needed. Or maybe you were working on a project that turned out to be pretty good but not great. Maybe you were pushing to create a new life for yourself but weren’t wise enough to make a complete breakthrough. Almost 12 years later, you have returned to a similar phase in your long-term cycle. You are better equipped to do what you couldn’t quite do before: create the masterpiece, finish the job, rise to the next level. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): To become a skillful singer, you must learn to regulate your breath. You’ve got to take in more oxygen than usual for extended periods, and do it in ways that facilitate rather than interfere with the sounds coming out of your mouth. When you’re beginning, it feels weird to exert so much control over an instinctual impulse, which previously you’ve done unconsciously. Later, you have to get beyond your self-conscious discipline so you can reach a point where the proper breathing happens easily and gracefully. Although you may not be working to become a singer in 2016, Gemini, I think you will have comparable challenges: 1. to make conscious an activity that has been unconscious; 2. to refine and cultivate that activity; 3. to allow your consciously-crafted approach to become unselfconscious again. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Ancient humans didn’t “invent” fire, but rather learned about it from nature and then figured out how to pro-

duce it as needed. Ropes had a similar origin. Our ancestors employed long vines made of tough fiber as primitive ropes, and eventually got the idea to braid and knot the vines together for greater strength. This technology was used to hunt, climb, pull, fasten, and carry. It was essential to the development of civilization. I predict that 2016 will bring you opportunities that have metaphorical resemblances to the early rope. Your task will be to develop and embellish on what nature provides.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): British author Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) had a day job with the postal service until he was in his fifties. For years he awoke every morning at 5:30 and churned out 2,500 words before heading to work. His goal was to write two or three novels a year, a pace he came close to achieving. “A small daily task, if it really be daily,” he wrote in his autobiography, “will beat the labors of a spasmodic Hercules.” I recommend that you borrow from his strategy in 2016, Leo. Be regular and disciplined and diligent as you practice the art of gradual, incremental success. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Umbrellas shelter us from the rain, saving us from the discomfort of getting soaked and the embarrassment of bad hair. They also protect us from the blinding light and sweltering heat of the sun. I’m very much in favor of these practical perks. But when umbrellas appear in your nightly dreams, they may have a less positive meaning. They can indicate an inclination to shield yourself from natural forces, or to avoid direct contact with primal sensuality. I hope you won’t do much of that in 2016. In my opinion, you need a lot of face-toface encounters with life in its raw state. Symbolically speaking, this should be a non-umbrella year.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Around the world, an average of 26 languages go extinct every year. But it increasingly appears that Welsh will not be one of them. It has enjoyed a revival in the past few decades. In Wales, it’s taught in many schools, appears on road signs, and is used in some mobile phones and computers. Is there a comparable phenomenon in your life, Libra? A tradition that can be revitalized and should be preserved? A part of your heritage that may be useful to your future? A neglected aspect of your birthright that deserves to be reclaimed? Make it happen in 2016.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Fourrteenth-century author Geoffrey Chaucer produced a collection of stories known as The Canterbury Tales. It became a seminal text of English literature even though he never finished it. The most influential book ever written by theologian Thomas Aquinas was a work he gave up on before it was completed. The artist Michelangelo never found the time to put the final touches on numerous sculptures and paintings. Why am I bringing this theme to your attention? Because 2016 will be an excellent time to wrap up long-term projects you’ve been working on —and also to be at peace with abandoning those you can’t. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A bottle of Chateau Cheval Blanc wine from 1947 sold for $304,000. Three bottles of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 1869 went for $233,000 apiece. The mystique about aged wine provokes crazy behavior like that. But here’s a more mundane fact: Most wine deteriorates with age, and should be sold within a few years of being bottled. I’m thinking about these things as I meditate on your long-term future, Sagittarius. My guess is that your current labor of love will reach full maturity in the next 18 to 20 months. This will be a time to bring all your concentration and ingenuity to bear on making it as good as it can be. By September of 2017, you will have ripened it as much as it can be ripened.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In her poem “Tree,” California poet Jane Hirshfield speaks of a young redwood tree that’s positioned next to a house. Watch out! It grows fast—as much as three feet per year. “Already the first branchtips brush at the window,” Hirshfield writes. “Softly, calmly, immensity taps at your life.” I suspect this will be an apt metaphor for you in 2016. The expansion and proliferation you have witnessed these past few months are likely to intensify. That’s mostly good, but may also require adjustments. How will you respond as immensity taps at your life?

Tiny houses present big challenges In the last few years, I have regularly seen blogs about tiny houses and wondered why there are not more of them around. The tiny house movement seems to be spreading and charming people with its eco-friendly designs and financial perks. Most of you I’m sure have heard about them, but also haven’t seen them placed anywhere. As I did more research, I realized it was because it was a challenge to place them. In Portland, the trend seems to be to place them in the backyards of existing residential neighborhoods as an accessory dwelling unit. I wondered why there weren’t larger communities of these tiny homes as well as more of them, particularly here in Bend where affordable housing is so badly needed. As I researched the subject, I found out that because most of them are on wheels or a trailer base, they can be classified as RV’s or mobile homes. So you would think they could then just park in an RV or mobile home park, but that is easier said than done. Apparently, many RV and mobile home parks require that homes be built by certified

or approved manufacturers and the tiny house manufacturers are not on their list because they were never listed or registered as such. To further complicate matters, many tiny houses are built by individual owner-occupants. This raises safety concerns as they do not have to be built to any codes, which complicates the residential classification. Hopefully, in the near future, cities like Bend will address tiny house placement in terms of zoning and defining standards. Realistically, it seems like it could be of great help in alleviating some of our housing shortage and maybe they would not be on wheels if they weren’t in the current gray area for zoning. Cities are researching how to address these structures so they can be legally placed and maybe we will see more of them in the near future, but first it looks like there will need to be changes in the building standards for these structure as well as development code changes. Portland seems to be leading the way for Oregon and Bend has had discussions as well, but it does not seem like something that will happen very soon.

though in public is the least desirable place for people to consume from a public health policy perspective. Of course, it doesn’t have to be this way.

Anywhere that could be construed as being “open to the public,” even a private social club with membership fees and other requirements, generally does not meet the legal definition of a “private place.” That leaves only residences as places to consume cannabis.

The obvious comparator is alcohol, where the Bend economy depends on the right to consume alcohol in a public place. Allowing consumption in pubs ameliorates many of the issues that would otherwise arise with alcohol consumption. For example, there are many fewer people drinking beer in Bend parks because it is legal for them to drink beer at places like the Crow's Feet Commons patio and the Crux side yard.

s cannabis legalization unfolds, a hot topic has become public, on-site consumption of cannabis. The default for medical marijuana laws has been to allow consumption only in a private place such as a residence. Recreational cannabis legalization laws have largely followed suit.

But cannabis legalization laws have not affected residential landlord-tenant laws, allowing landlords to continue arbitrary bans on possessing or using cannabis in rentals. This leaves privately-owned homes as essentially the only places where cannabis can be consumed legally under state law. With stores now selling cannabis to adults 21 and over, many purchasers are left with limited options of where to consume their cannabis. This has led groups such as the Bend Park and Recreation District Board to advocate for restrictions such as a 250foot buffer between cannabis stores and Bend parks. The logic is that people who purchase cannabis that they cannot consume in their home will be deterred from going to a park to consume the cannabis if the distance they have to travel to reach the park is more than 250 feet. But regardless of the proposed park buffer, there are no significant legal mechanisms for regulating where people consume cannabis. Police officers can issue a citation to those smoking in public that requires payment of a fine, but in practice many officers give warnings first, partly because so many of the offenders cannot or will not pay the fine. And the whole point of cannabis legalization was to remove criminal-level penalties from smoking cannabis in the first place. But by banning consumption in so many places, the law seems to have created a perverse situation where the easiest place to consume may often be in public even

The Bend City Council and its Marijuana Advisory Committee apparently will not seek to ban private cannabis clubs locally. But the legality of such clubs would be suspect at best in Oregon, and it seems unlikely that any will appear in Central Oregon in the foreseeable future. Perhaps the wisest choice for the canna-phobic Bend Parks & Rec Board would be to advocate for the right of Oregonians to consume cannabis in rental homes and private social clubs, or even in cannabis lounges. That bold decision was recently taken by the Alaska Marijuana Control Board, which voted to recommend a rule allowing cannabis consumption on-site at cannabis stores in Alaska. The Board’s reasoning for allowing on-site consumption was driven at least in part by the fact that it believes private cannabis clubs are illegal under Alaska law. The rule, if enacted, would make Alaska the first state to allow on-site consumption. And it could create an entirely new sector of the Alaska economy. The opportunities for businesses creating an on-site cannabis consumption experience are endless, from cannabis coffee shops to cannabis bars, cannabis arcades, cannabis bowling alleys, cannabis movie theatres. One could even open a canna-planetarium. Just to name a few. Right now, it looks like these businesses will all begin in Alaska. Not Oregon. But it seems fitting that the Last Frontier should be the first frontier for a whole new type of entertainment industry.
