f you want an example of just how inane the Internet can be, look no further than the recent articles, posts and comments that erupted following the rollout of Oregon’s new law on pumping gas. In case you missed it, Oregon House Bill 2482 makes it possible for people in some of Oregon’s most rural counties (Deschutes not included) to pump their own gas, and in a few other counties, for people to pump their own gas during nighttime hours. The bill passed without a single “no” vote in the House in March, and with just one “no” in the Senate in May. The bill’s passage demonstrates that lawmakers can, once in a while, come together to agree on an issue—even one that’s as clearly contentious as pumping your own gas in Oregon. One need only look to the Internet to see that outside the state capitol, this issue doesn’t enjoy broad consensus. Here’s a brief sampling of the Facebook comments made by Oregonians this week, which caused the Internet commenters to erupt with scorn and commentary: From the Source’s Facebook feed: “Who in their right mind wants to get out of their car, deal with a toxic substance, fight the elements, and not enjoy the interactions of the people who work these jobs? Going to the same station over the years has allowed me to become friends with some of those working there. Glad Bend is not changing, and those other states have just been brainwashed into thinking pumping your own gas is a good thing.” – Randy McBride A comment from an Oregonian on the Facebook feed of Medford TV station, KTVL: “I’ve lived in this state all my life and I REFUSE to pump my own gas… This [is] a service only qualified people

should perform.” And of course, the comments from non-Oregonians: “It’s official. Oregon is full of mentally defective, full grown children, incapable of the most mundane adult tasks.” Social media chatter can be entertaining, but let’s break this down to its core, yet again, for those of you not in the know. The original law banning pumping your own gas came about in 1951. It wasn’t about Oregonians being incapable of pumping their own gas—though legislators did make mention of the fact that it made spills less likely, and made the entire experience more convenient for people, including seniors. But at its core, the original law was about creating jobs. According to OregonLive, the ban on self-serve means jobs for roughly 10,000 people. And where do people need jobs most? Eastern Oregon, unfortunately. We just hope that this is the end of the march toward a more barbaric Oregon. While it is somewhat humorous to hear people go to bat for the “right” to pump your own gas, what they’re really supporting is greater inconvenience, fewer working class jobs and car owners working for gas and oil companies in their spare time. Not a pretty picture. And as a reminder, Benditos afraid of spillage, best get your gas in Bend or Redmond before heading out of town. Counties where you can now pump your own gas: All hours: Baker, Crook, Gilliam, Grant, Harney, Hood River, Jefferson, Lake, Malheur, Morrow, Sherman, Union, Wallowa, Wasco and Wheeler Self serve between 6pm and 6am: Clatsop, Curry and Tillamook  SW

In response to Melissa Hogan’s request for why it’s good to reintroduce wolves, my best answer is to view the short (5 minute) film, “How wolves change rivers.” It shows the remarkably extensive positive effects of wolves in the environment. She objects that these “Canadian” wolves are an “invasive species.” Sometimes “invasive” is a matter of degree. All the wolves in North America were an interconnected species. It’s just the ones here in Oregon have been replaced, by natural dissemination, filling a void left by foolish extermination. Like so often, peoples’ response to a narrow problem of wolf predation was a short-sighted solution that ignored many negative results of their elimination. As to an invasive species that has been extremely destructive, that would be nearly every human in North America. But we make allowances for that. That the deer and elk populations may have declined some, whatever the wolves’ responsibility, they are taking the sick and weak. It’s human hunters that violate healthy selection by killing the best, thus weakening the population. The wolves belong here. They make the world a better place. I’m not advocating ignoring the conflicts. Cattle ranchers’ issues should be addressed fairly. But all sides need to make accommodations to achieve the best longterm outcome. — David Horn

By now, most Oregon voters have received a ballot in the mail, containing just one item. Measure 101 comes as a result of the passage of HB 2391 in the Oregon Legislative Assembly in 2017, which dealt with many aspects of healthcare funding. Measure 101, brought to a vote through a citizen-led referendum, seeks to overturn several provisions of that 2017 legislation.

• 101 HISTORY •

Measure 101 asks voters to approve the parts of HB 2391 that involve raising revenue—in other words, the parts that involve taxes.

101 Oregon was one of the first states to enact a citizen initiative and referendum process dating back to 1902. Oregon was unique in enacting a constitutional amendment which allowed citizens, through a ballot initiative, to directly enact laws and constitutional amendments as well as to overturn laws passed by Oregon’s legislature. Oregon’s citizens have vibrantly embraced this process of direct democracy over the ensuing century-plus.

This year, 2018, is no exception. We begin the year with a special election January 23, considering Measure 101.

An Olympian and pro U.S. skier opens up about her accident, recovery and journey toward racing again.

t was a beautifully terrible day. There’s something about stormy days on the mountain; you can’t hear yourself speak up against the wind. The snow is swirling around you madly. The surface of the slopes disappears with the blowing layer of wind and snow. Vertigo comes and goes. You can barely feel your fingers—it’s nicer when they go numb. All the noise actually creates this stillness, in which the only thing you can feel and hear is your own breathing. I love stormy days. They push me, challenge me to find my center. But on this one, I didn’t know the day would end in a way that challenged my very self, identity and career. Our coaches at the U.S. Nationals Grand Slalom race told us the race would run no matter what, so we knew it was going to be a crazy weather day. The first gates were blowing downhill in the tail wind. I was cold down to the bone. The sleet had piled up overnight but was slipped off the icy GS course. I was only there racing for the hell of it, for fun. It had been two years since my last race in GS, but I was excited to give it a shot again. After all, it used to be my best event. I remember taking off my outer layer and immediately freezing my buns off, clicking into my skis and mentally preparing for a wild ride. The first few gates were fast—very fast for a GS. The tail wind pushed me out of the start...I barely had to pole at all. By the third gate I was hauling, arcing some nice turns on the top flat. Then, at what I thought was the sixth gate, I pressured my skis for a right footer on the backside of a roll, and they slipped out from under me on the ice. I was sliding on my left hip, thinking I could stand back up and still make the next gate. A silly hip-check at high speeds can be fun to pull off. But, now, I know better. Before I was fully back on my feet (my weight was transferred, but I had yet to stand completely back upright) I hit a pile of new snow with my right outside edge. It twisted and jerked my knee out with incredible force. I’m not even sure what the crash was like...all that remained was pain. Excruciating pain. And that’s all that existed for the following hour. I don’t even remember thinking about what was wrong, where my friends and family were, if I’d ever ski again—just pain and the accompanying aspects: moving into a sled, wailing uninhibitedly, Micum (my physio) consoling me on my sled ride, shivering, shaking, pain. In a sense, it was probably the most present I have ever been for such a span of time. I was forced to be with the pain, and although I was not “OK” with it (all I wanted was for it to be gone), I was at least with it. I could barely breathe. I was choking on my sobs and violently shaking throughout my entire being. The pain penetrated to my very core. I have experienced many kinds of pain before—from dislocated shoulders to bone-deep lacerations, from a broken heart to a shattered pelvis—but all have paled in comparison to this. It was awful, horrific, unbelievable, and it was terrifyingly real. Eventually, I was loaded up with Fentanyl, yet even a normally large dose didn’t numb me enough. I began to care about other aspects of my reality, and that’s when I realized how all-encompassing the pain was. It was almost like, when I was living in the pain, I was in another world. A hell of sorts. A world where nothing good exists. I hope I’ll never have to return to that place. The first rational thoughts I remember were the appreciation for, and comfort in, having my best friends, my parents and my partner by my side. They were there when it transitioned from my pain cave to my bad version of reality.

By Laurenne Ross

The ambulance ride was the first time I began considering my future: what was actually wrong with my knee? I knew it was something awful, but I had no idea about the extent of my injury yet. Would I ski again? Would I walk again? What would I do if I couldn’t get back to these physical capabilities? I thought about university, about my degree, grad school. I thought about whether, if I could ski again, I would even want to. To expose myself to the potential of experiencing it all again seemed out of the question. Thankfully, one of my best friends  (and pro skier), Leanne was there providing some rational insight. “Wait,” she said. “See how you feel. Now is a terrible time to make decisions.” She was right. Any time over the next six weeks would have been a terrible time to make any sort of life decisions, so I didn’t let myself. I told myself, “Until you’re completely out of the pain, no big decisions.” And fuck. Those next six weeks were so hard. When I learned, the night of my accident, the extent of my injury, I

Aside from all the misery, there was love. So much love. Nothing felt like enough at the time, but now I look back and see how lovingly I was cared for.  knew it was going to be a long, bumpy road. But I didn’t really know—you never really do until you’re in it. Four days later I went under the knife in Vail, Colo. I woke up after surgery, back in that pain place, sobbing and restless. That first night was hell. I barely slept, which is pretty astonishing considering the amount of morphine dripped into my veins all night. I had horrible visions and I vaguely remember writing about the  pain in my journal, but I was mostly numbing myself with pain medication and not feeling like myself for what felt like a ridiculously long span of time. I cried in every therapy session over those first four weeks. I would even cry in the car on the way to therapy, foreshadowing the pain it would cause. But I knew I had to do it to get back to skiing and to living how I wanted. That first month I was burdened with intense anxiety—fear of physical therapy and the pain, fear of my future, fear, even, of the present. I got to know my darkest self and, although there were glimpses of light, I didn’t enjoy much of anything. I took so much Vicodin, Oxycontin, CBD-this and Arnica-that, attempting to soothe the discomfort. But I just had to ride it out. Thankfully, I didn’t know that beforehand. Aside from all the misery, there was love. So much love. Nothing felt like enough at the time, but now I look back and see how lovingly I was cared for. Tommy (Ford) flew with me to Colorado for the surgery. Both parents came out to Vail to help me during my surgery and first week of recovery. My mum and I slept in the same bed for the first time since I had had meningitis, years ago. My friend Elle moved to Bend to help me for a few weeks while my roommate Kelly made me insanely delicious meals and brought me breakfast in bed every morning. She rubbed my feet at night and slept with me on the bad nights while her dog cuddled me—a rarity for him. Kyle, our other roommate, crafted bouquets for me and filled the house with spring colors and scents. My dad brought dinner over countless nights and helped with my at-home therapy every single day. My therapist Ellie even came to my house on the weekends. Looking back on it all, it

was magic. I was surrounded by the most wonderful people, but I couldn’t see that clearly at the time. I was always freezing cold—shivering under all the covers, obsessed with my heating mat and constantly taking scalding-hot baths. I lost 15 pounds over the first few weeks, mostly from my loss of appetite with the pain meds but partly due to the cold and anxiety as well. Thinking clearly was a luxury, but it began happening more regularly about a month after surgery. I embraced these times to write or do homework; I took a few online classes to dedicate my mind to useful thinking. Eventually, I submerged from the cloud of drugged-up obscurity and came back to myself. I got inspired by my classes—to create, to dream, to keep moving. I adopted an anti-inflammatory diet (no gluten, dairy, alcohol, night-shade vegetables, fried food or sugar) for a while and learned how to cook with fresh, whole foods. I spent countless hours in therapy (a regimen that has not come to an end), working on my knee while tending to the rest of my body. Everybody thinks you’ll have all this extra time when you get injured, but so much time is spent doing the simple things: getting from place to place, doing physical therapy, taking a shower, trying to get enough sleep, countering countless wakeful nights. There have been days over the past six months where I’ll leave the Center of Excellence in Park City and realize I spent nine hours in the gym that day. Then I have to head home to rest, elevate, compress, ice. It’s never ending. But I’ve made the time to take a few classes, to do some drawing and lots of writing, to read books and magazines. My world seems to have expanded during this difficult phase of healing, despite shrinking down so small at times. I am seeing everything just a little bit differently: the light peeking through the leaves, the old man on his bicycle, the scars that adorn my changing body. I understand things differently, mostly in the sense that I understand very little, and that’s OK. I recognize and appreciate the small victories. I notice elements of the slow progression that accompany any major injury: the pain of descending stairs slowly dissipating over an eight-week span. Some things happen fast (not many) and these help me to understand my high expectations (when I rarely fulfill them) and how to keep them at bay. I’ve learned how to be gentle with myself, how to be kind. I know it will take effort to carry this through  the  winter, but I know, for my sanity and well-being, this is something incredibly necessary for me to continue to work on. I am currently starting to race again on the World Cup circuit, and I am allowing myself to get excited, but making sure I return to racing slowly, with no expectations. I have worked my ass off, have sacrificed so much, and have been through emotional hell for my sport, but even if it doesn’t work out—if I’m unable to race as one of the best in the world ever again—it will all have been worth it. I’m better from all of this. I am me, and I’m getting to know that person and am learning what really makes me happy and realizing that what it all comes down to, really, is love. So, if anything, out of this process I will take those lessons and begin with loving myself. And maybe out of that love will grow something wonderful.  SW Laurenne Ross has competed in four Alpine World Ski Championships and raced in the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Let it Rip

Reverend Horton Heat continues to bring high-energy, modern rockabilly to the stage By Anne Pick



hen it comes to modern rockabilly music, one name stands above the rest. The Reverend Horton Heat, a stage name Jim Heath adopted back in 1985, blends elements of rockabilly, punk, country and big band to create the group’s classic sound. Fans of that old-time, ‘50s sound have a friend in “The Reverend,” as he’s affectionately called. “One thing I love about rockabilly is it mixes really great musicianship with all styles of American music,” Heath says. “The lyrics are really straight ahead and goofy and funny. It’s highly entertaining, highly energetic music. There’s nothing quite as energetic as that music from the ‘50s.” Heath and company have toured back and forth across the country for the past 30 years, bringing that high-energy rockabilly sound. Heath still loves jumping on that stage and performing night after night. “I just love the energy of the whole thing,” Heath tells me. “Smiling at the people and the people are smiling back. It’s just a wonderful thing. Just getting to goof off and have fun and have the people enjoy it is a dream. It’s a dream come true.”

After spending his life performing, Heath admits to enjoying playing music more now than when he was younger. In earlier days, Heath and his bandmates would go on stage with a certain goal in mind, which often led to extra pressure. Sometimes it was pressure to impress an agent or a record label exec; other times, they were opening up for Soundgarden and performing for 10,000 people. “Now, I’ll just get up there and let it rip,” Heath says. The esteem of “The Reverend” has allowed Heath to perform with many of his idols, sharing the stage with Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis, and doing sessions with Willie Nelson and the Brian Setzer Orchestra. “Those were my heroes I got to meet and open up for. It’s kind of crazy,” Heath says. “I don’t really know who else I would want to do it with. I really enjoy a guy named JD McPherson, he’s pretty awesome.” Heath and the band released their most recent album in 2014. This past summer, the band recorded 10 songs, but Heath admits to being so busy that he hasn’t had time to work on the album. He confides that listeners will hear some rock and roll, as well as some

Louisiana piano on the new album— but other than that, even Heath doesn’t know how the new record will turn out. “I’m throwing out the possibility of trying to write some more songs and go back in the studio,” Heath says. On this tour, Reverend Horton Heat is joined by Voodoo Glow Skulls and a performer named Big Sandy. Heath says Big Sandy has been joining his band on stage during the middle of The Reverend’s set, and in turn, they’ve been



backing him up for a few songs. Heath says the set list is pretty simple, but expect some different songs than fans have seen before.  SW Reverend Horton Heat with Voodoo Glow Skulls, Big Sandy Wed., Jan. 17. 8pm Domino Room 51 NW Greenwood Ave., Bend $25/adv at

knew he was on the right track. We all pull from new and old, but it’s got to be real. We’re not just a hip-hop and jazz band, we go into punk and reggae, too, that’s just our base.” Amani says each band member has a great relationship with jazz. The first song Amani ever wrote was a jazz song. The other guys in the band—Carbone, Jason Corpuz, Jeremy Klewicki and Nick Schmitt—met while attending UNLV, studying jazz music. “I’ve been rapping since I was in junior high, and all the guys love hiphop,” Amani says. “Hip-hop has a strong relationship with jazz. Jazz has always been heavily sampled and many of the famous rappers are related to the old jazz cats. We’re bringing it back to the roots.” While Amani is often the voice, he’s learned to make sacrifices and adapt to a different creation process as part of a band. “In the past, in general it was my show. I’m the leader, but the difference is it’s more democratic in the creation process,” Amani says. “If anyone hates anything, we don’t do it. It’s just been a

different thing, it’s been an interesting thing, I’ll tell you that much. Also, growing up as an only child, I’ve grown into it and have these brothers now. It’s broadened my experience.” The Lique has already seen success, having been named the “Best Band in Las Vegas,” and gracing the cover of Las Vegas Weekly. All that means dream-achieving recognition for the five-piece band, and a huge tour. While Amani has performed in Bend before, the appearance this week at McMenamins is the band’s first appearance together, here and in the Pacific Northwest. The band’s new album, called “Times Like These,” takes inspiration from social upheaval. Living in Vegas, Amani says the first thing anyone asks about is the shooting that happened in October. “People come out to party, we have one hell of a time when we party, but there’s a message when you listen,” Amani confides. “We’re more deeply embracing the conscious awareness of love, peace and joy while the world is crumbling around you.”  SW



f you haven’t heard of The Lique (pronounced The Leak), let me be the first to introduce you to your new favorite band. Based in Las Vegas, The Lique combines the talents of former University of Las Vegas jazz musicians and emcee Rasar Amani. From politically charged songs to anthems about Batman, there’s a lot to like about this band that blends hip-hop and jazz. Amani released a number of solo albums while living in Sacramento, Calif., before moving to Las Vegas to work as the emcee at a show on the Strip. There, Amani met Sean Carbone, crediting him with the idea to form The Lique. “He had this idea for a band inspired by A Tribe Called Quest,” Amani says. “We’re not actively trying to be A Tribe Called Quest, but he had the idea and I

WinterFest It wouldn’t be Bend if we didn’t have an outdoor festival happening, and winter is no reason not to. While I’m not a big fan of art contests (because, honestly, how do you score such a thing) I do love the Fire Pit Sculpture competition put on during WinterFest. It’s not often you get to see a variety of large sculptures dancing with light and harnessing fire. The work is usually impressive at the least and inspiring at best. When the displays come out, it’s always fun to see what wonders some members of the blacksmithing community have been up to over the last few months. Oregon WinterFest

Bend Art Center Events When the days are short and cold, people find themselves staying in, hunkering down, getting cozy. Unless, of course, you live in Central Oregon, home to outdoor people year-round. The result: there are always wonderful events featuring art, even in the winter. The Bend Art Center is offering some upcoming events that explore the winter weather and our relationship to it. Currently on display is the work of photographer Alyson Belcher, who documented the region’s record freeze last year, and the ice formations that occurred. Her photographic work on last year’s record snowstorms will be on display until Jan. 27. If that doesn’t satisfy your snow craving, printmaker and installation artist Ana McKee gives a talk March 3 about her excursions in the Antarctic and their influence on her work. McKee’s exhibit, “Glaciers: Persistent Ice in Motion,” will be on display March 2 to April 1. If you’re looking for a deep understanding of art and its various roles throughout history, Bend Art Center has you covered there as well. Art historian Lorna Cahall offers talks every third Wednesday of the month at 7 pm. In January she covers the importance and influence of sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini. February covers 19th century French painter Eugène Delacroix, and in March brings the amazing history and myth of one of western civilization’s greatest wonders, the Acropolis.

Building Community, One Meal at a Time

By Lisa Sipe

The secret to making friends in Bend: Food. Lots of food



hen Jesica and Rich Carleton moved to Bend from Alaska three years ago, they only knew one person in town. Carleton was on Facebook one day, where she found an article about a couple who started an open-invitation, casual dinner every week to connect with friends and family. They called it Friday Night Meatballs. Jesica shared the article with Rich, who remarked, “It could be interesting.” The Carletons’ version of Friday Night Meatballs was dubbed Saturday Supper. The couple could seat 10 people at their family table, always including Jesica’s brother, David Woods, and mom, Patricia Woods. The Carletons provide a simple meal, and guests can bring something—though it’s not required. Jesica had business cards and postcards made, adding details such as a recommendation to RSVP the day before so they’d know how much food to make. She started inviting anyone she connected with—from people she met through a Meetup or in line at the grocery store. In the beginning, the pair worried no one would show up. Some of the early dinners were just a few people, but fairly quickly the party grew as guests returned and invited friends or family. It wasn’t long before the couple started adding tables, never wanting to turn anyone away. The largest Saturday Supper to date was 26 people. Luckily, the Carletons’ house, charmingly named Carleton Manor, is made for entertaining. The midtown property was previously a bed and breakfast and a home for women in transition. The four-bedroom house sits on almost 1 acre, which includes a treehouse, greenhouse and an apartment where Jesica’s mom lives.

Jesica Carleton

Saturday Supper isn’t always inside. In the summer and when the Carletons were remodeling their kitchen they moved the tables and guests outside.

Holm Made Toffee owners Donna and Randi Holm.

Yum! Expansion Brings More Holm Made Toffee

There’s great news for those with a sweet tooth. Local artisan toffee maker, Holm Made Toffee, is moving into a new commercial kitchen space, formerly a bakery, and doubling its production facility. Co-owner Randi Holm said, “Increased production and room for larger equipment will allow us to offer more seasonal flavors and a more diverse product line. We plan on doing some fun additions around the holidays and Farmers Market seasons.” Expect more handmade toffee topped with Oregon-grown hazelnuts in flavors including Himalayan sea salt, espresso and cardamom vanilla. Holm Made Toffee isn’t moving very far; the new space is next to the current one in Bend’s Makers District. Find Holm Made Toffee online and all over Central Oregon, including Food4Less, C.E. Lovejoy’s Market, Market of Choice and Newport Market.

The theme for Saturday Supper was the letter S, for Sue Sant who was celebrating her 75th birthday. Guests dined on sesame chicken, sushi, salad, stew, spanakopita, squash soup, spicy slaw, spiraled ham and cheesy bacon cornbread.Right, Rich Carleton grabs a fortune cookie. It’s become a Saturday Supper ritual for everyone to get a cookie and read their fortune out loud and add “in bed” to the message.

The main kitchen is a cook’s dream, with the biggest island I’ve ever seen. At roughly 6 by 9 feet, it’s the size of a nice laundry room, and includes a stovetop with six full-sized burners—a bit larger than what you find in an average home, and two refrigerators. The adjacent room is decorated in shades of ultra violet, the 2018 Pantone color of the year. It’s large enough to connect three dining tables and still have room for a loveseat. I attended Saturday Supper as the Carletons were celebrating its threeyear anniversary. Every seat was full. The theme for the evening was the letter “S,” in honor of the couple’s friend Sue Sant, celebrating her 75th birthday. Coincidentally, Sant was that sole person the Carletons knew when they moved to Bend. The dishes guests brought lined the center of the table and all had “S” names, including sesame chicken, sushi, salad, stew, spanakopita, squash soup, spicy slaw, spiraled ham and, the outlier, some cheesy bacon cornbread. I brought a bottle of wine, a Washington Syrah, to keep with the theme. It was the kind of feast reminiscent of a big holiday. As food went around, guests talked about their excitement for the New Year and what they’ve been up to since the last supper. Deby DeWeese, sitting next to me, filled me in on some important info: “You never leave Saturday Supper hungry. Save room for dessert, I heard there are four tonight.” As I bit into my delicious sesame chicken I appreciated

the heads-up. I love dessert! The group also shared what Saturday Supper has meant to them. Carol Fox, who’s been in Bend just a few years, said, “Coming to these dinners made me feel like I finally belonged in Bend.” A lot of guests echoed that sense of community. Patricia Delozier said, “It’s the best part of family.” Abbey Kellner-Rodes said, “The feeling of community here makes me feel this is my forever home. Moving here and feeling like we’re family is really special.” I could see what they meant. I didn’t know anyone in the group and I still felt comfortable and welcome. Jesica added, “Saturday Suppers is the highlight of our time here.” If you plan on starting your own Friday Night Meatballs or Saturday Supper, Jesica Carleton has advice. First, keep meals simple. In the beginning she tried to get fancy and elaborate but it’s easier and more sustainable when things are casual. So what are you waiting for? Fill those extra chairs next time you dine at home.  SW

Ridley Scott, the 80-year-old pioneer filmmaker, removed Kevin Spacey from the finished version of this film and re-shot the role starring Christopher Plummer. He did this herculean task in eight days. It takes me two weeks to type up a resume. I now feel terrible about myself and also really want to see this movie. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

COCO: Leave it to Pixar to make a cute and heartwarming animated film about death and remembrance. “Coco” follows a young Mexican boy who travels to the Land of the Dead in order to follow his dreams to be a musician. With groundbreaking animation and hauntingly beautiful music, “Coco” is the finest Pixar film in years. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX DARKEST HOUR: Gary Oldman is on the fast track for his first Oscar as a heavily madeup Winston Churchill. The film looks intense and like an actor's paradise, but performances under that much make-up are usually goofier than the filmmakers like to believe. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX DOWNSIZING: Director Alexander Payne is responsible for the brilliant satires, “Election” and “Citizen Ruth,” but advanced word says this is another ill-timed white savior narrative disguised as a woke dramedy. The idea of shrinking people to fit their environments is a great one, but if the characters don't work then none of it will. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX FATHER FIGURES: Owen Wilson and Ed

Helms play brothers crossing the country searching for their birth father. The supporting cast features Ving Rhames, J.K. Simmons, Glenn Close, Christopher Walken and Katt Williams, so even though the trailer is bad, there might be some genuine laughs. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

a giant bull trying to escape from his cruel captors. With the voice talents of John Cena, Kate McKinnon, David Tennant and Anthony Anderson, “Ferdinand” should be a funny and fast-paced flick for the kids. The humor in the trailer is fairly juvenile, so don't expect Pixar-level animation. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE FLORIDA PROJECT: Director Sean Baker was responsible for 2015's brilliant “Tangerine” and 2012's profanely moving “Starlet,” so expect “The Florida Project” to be another wonderful little film. Starring Willem Dafoe and a star-making performance by Brooklynn Prince, “The Florida Project” will definitely be a contender during awards season. Sisters Movie House THE GREATEST SHOWMAN: Hugh Jack-

amazing about this franchise that's now four films into its run is that it stars a 74-year-old character actress. “The Last Key” has a few wonderfully spooky moments, but the real draw is seeing Lin Shaye finally take a long-overdue turn in the spotlight. Fans of the series will find

Starring Kevin Hart, Jack Black, The Rock and Karen Gillan, this looks much more entertaining than it has any right to be. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

THE LAST JEDI: The darkest and most emotionally brutal “Star Wars” film since “The Empire Strikes Back” sees the characters we know and love put through the wringer in one scene after another. This might not be a crowd pleaser in the same way “The Force Awakens” was, but it's a mature and nuanced entry into the beloved franchise. This will only become more beloved as it ages. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema MOLLY'S GAME: Jessica Chastain stars in this biopic of former Olympic-level skier turned underground gambling kingpin Molly Bloom. “Molly's Game” is fast-paced, fascinating and a perfect counterpoint to cinemas clogged with superheroes and fart jokes. If you've ever enjoyed an episode of “The West Wing,” then this movie will hit that sweet spot. See full review on p29. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX PITCH PERFECT 3: This is the little franchise

that could. The entire cast returns in what is being advertised as the last film in the series, but if it's a success I'm sure the Bellas can be talked into one more aca-venture. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

THE SHAPE OF WATER: The delightful

love story about a mute cleaning woman and her torrid romance with a fish monster. It begins to make more sense knowing it's from the mind of visionary filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro, the mastermind behind “Crimson Peak” and “Pan's Labyrinth.” Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE STAR: Who doesn't love anthropomor-

phized animals hanging around the birth of Christ?? “The Star” follows a brave little donkey and his friends Camel, Lady Horse, Sheep Guy, Other Camel and Dogma as they hang around for the first Christmas. A cross between “The Secret Life of Pets” and Sunday School. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House


McDonagh, who is responsible for the modern classics, “Seven Psychopaths” and “In Bruges,” brings us another darkly hilarious look at human nature. With awards-worthy performances by Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell, “Three Billboards” is a wildly original piece of art that should not be missed. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

WONDER: The little movie that could! This follows a facially disfigured little boy entering a public school for the first time, in fifth grade. The film looks heartwarming in all the right ways and reviews say that it actually stays on the right side of schmaltz and ends up being a miraculous little movie.

Chills and (Mostly) Spills

Apologies from a day at the rink, from a brand-new (adult) skater. By Howard Leff

Bend Parks and Recreation Department

Together, two skaters can conquer gravity.

never showed up to class. Uh-oh! Excuse me, madam! Yes, you, the one (temporarily) smiling and laughing and having all sorts of fun. Seems I’m about to fall right into your path. In a matter of seconds, my clumsiness will cause you to execute an acutely difficult turning maneuver while experiencing a somewhat unhealthy blood pressure spike. Wow, good form on that, and apologies for your “fight or flight” reflex kicking in on rather short notice! No need to check on me. I’m sure my new health insurance will take care of nearly 18 percent of the ligament damage. No, you just go on your merry way, gliding smoothly around the rink while I carefully remove the ice crystals from my molars. Hope you’re all having a great time out here this morning. After all, it’s the Sunday half-price “Family Skate” session at The Pavilion, where two hours of skating plus rental comes in at a tidy $6 per person. Hope you’re enjoying your perfect winter day before a grown man (looking to save $6) comes crashing into it. Sorry to make everyone else pay for my attempt to stay within my monthly “recreation” budget. Whoops! Look out, kind sir. Yes, I know, your four-year-old son’s darn cute out there, pushing around his little traffic cone they use to help keep the kids upright. Yes, he’s having an amazing time. I understand he’ll probably remember this wonderful childhood moment for years, if not decades to come. Unfortunately, I’m about to enter his life, bumping into him, causing him to lose his delicate balance and careen

This fallen skater is not the author, though one of his tumbles did look like this.

softly into the side boards, cone and all. Sir, I would gladly stop to help, but figuring out how to stop is not something I can exactly Google at the moment. Apparently, skates don’t come with brakes, which now that I think of it, might make for a nice informative sign right above the skate rental counter. I generally have to stop my forward motion by screaming and plowing into something, which, with any luck, doesn’t have a pulse. Yes sir, I’m glad your son’s recovering nicely—and heartfelt sympathy for his temporary trauma. Won’t happen again. Well, at least for a few minutes. Attention everyone! I’ve decided to take a short break. No need for the applause, I can sense the relief on the ice. If you all must know, here’s what happened. This fall, I was assigned a story on Bend’s youth hockey leagues. That’s when I came up with the idea of learning how to skate. After all, here were kids not only skating, but also

gracefully carting around a hockey stick and firing pucks into the net from all angles. How hard can all of this be, I mistakenly thought. Besides, skating looks so effortless, fun and carefree when done correctly. This is the perfect activity to enhance both body and mind, soaring up and down the rink on chilly Bend mornings, deep breaths, your spirit in mindful harmony. Ha! First of all, to a beginner, the skates feel like strapping lead weights on your feet. The first few sessions on the ice are spine-janglingly treacherous. To those who happened to see me hugging the side boards with the intensity of someone who just found his long-lost puppy, you could probably tell I was in for a rough time. Ok, break’s over. Yes, everyone, I can hear you shrieking in abject horror. Now then, does anyone know where they keep those little traffic cones? Yours truly, Howard.   SW

ear Every Other Skater on the Ice: So sorry to put you through this. Please forgive me as I grab wildly for one of your limbs while suddenly dropping straight-down from an already precarious standing position to one where I’m splayed out on the ice like a helpless toddler—and yes, I know toddlers have an excuse. After all, they just mastered walking. Me? Although I have decades of solid walking experience on the books, it’s not helping at the moment. Neither is the fact that all of you make this skating thing look so easy. I can tell you it’s not. At least not at the beginning anyway. Right now, it feels like I’m having my recurring advanced calculus final exam dream again. The one where I

As Expected, Bend Real Estate Market Ends with Another Strong Year


Surprisingly, Crook County figures showed a decrease of about 5 percent in the median home price, going from $215,000 in December 2016 to $205,000 in December 2017. The number of months of inventory increased from two and a half months in December 2016 to four months for December 2017. These changes likely reflect the increased building activity in the area. When comparing the Bend and Redmond markets in terms of population, the Redmond market is performing proportionally to Bend, but there’s definitely a big difference in the price points. For Bend, the sales distribution of total sales for December 2017 was 25 transactions or 13 percent in the $100,000-$300,000 price range, as compared to 33 transactions or 63 percent of Redmond sales in the same category. When looking at workforce affordable housing, it appears that Redmond price points are helping meet that need—and perhaps explains the steady increase in rush hour traffic between Bend and Redmond.

he Beacon Report, based on real estate statistics from our local MLS, released its report of the December 2017 figures on Bend single family residence sales of 1 acre or less. The latest report also gives us the complete statistics for the year 2017, with some interesting comparisons to last year for Bend and surrounding communities. While the report shows the Bend median price per square foot increased by 8 percent over the prior year—from $200 to $216—the median sales price increased by about 5 percent over the same period, from $371,000 to $395,000. The total number of sales for Bend were 2,537 for the year 2016 and 2,478 for the year 2017, representing a 2 percent decrease. The Redmond real estate market ended the year strong with an 8 percent increase in median home sales price, from $266,000 for 2016 as compared to $287,000 for 2017. As in Bend, the total number of sales for the year were also down by about 10 percent, from 969 for 2016 compared to 877 for 2017.

My husband and I have been married for eight years. We have a 5-year-old son, and we both work full time. We used to have these amazing crazy sex marathons, but now we’re too tired from our jobs and parenthood. We have sex about once a month, if that. I’m worried that this isn’t healthy for our marriage. — Sex Famine The good news: You two are still like animals in bed. The bad news: They’re the sort on the road that have been flattened by speeding cars. This is something to try to change, because sex seems to be a kind of gym for a healthy relationship. Clinical psychologist Anik Debrot and her colleagues note that beyond how sex “promotes a stronger and more positive connection” between partners, there’s “strong support” in the research literature for a link between “an active and satisfying sexual life and individual well-being.” Of course, it’s possible that individuals who are happy get it on more often than those who hate their lives and each other. Also, rather obviously, having an orgasm tends to be more day-brightening than, say, having a flat tire. However, when Debrot and her colleagues surveyed couples to narrow down what makes these people having regular sex happier, their results suggested it wasn’t “merely due to pleasure experienced during sex itself.” It seems it was the affection and loving touch

(cuddlywuddlies) in bed that led couples to report increased “positive emotions and well-being” -- and not just right afterward but for hours afterward and even into the next day. The researchers found a longer-lasting effect, too: In a survey of 106 couples (all parents with at least one child younger than 8), the more these partners had sex over a 10-day period the greater their relationship satisfaction six months down the road. (The researchers did report a caveat: For the bump in relationship satisfaction, the sex had to be “affectionate” -- as opposed to, I guess, angry sex, breakup sex, or “You don’t mind if I tweet while we’re doing it?” sex.) Amy Alkon My prescription for you? Have sex once a week -- a frequency that research by social psychologist Amy Muise finds, for couples, is associated with greater happiness. Make time for it, the way you would if your kid needed to go to the dentist. Also, go easy on yourselves. Consider that some sex is better than, well, “sex marathon or nuthin!” And then, seeing as affection and loving touch -- not sexual pleasure -- led to the improved mood in individuals and increased relationship satisfaction in couples, basically be handsy and cuddly with each other in daily life. Act loving and you should find yourself feeling loving -instead of, say, feeling the urge to sound off to strangers in checkout lanes that the last time anyone took an interest in your ladyparts, your health insurance company sent you a bill for the copay.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “When one door closes, another opens,” said inventor Alexander Graham Bell. “But we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened.” Heed his advice, Aquarius. Take the time you need to mourn the lost opportunity. But don’t take MORE than the time you need. The replacement or alternative to what’s gone will show up sooner than you think.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Gilbert Stuart painted the most famous portrait of America’s first president, George Washington. It’s the image on the U.S. one-dollar bill. And yet Stuart never finished the masterpiece. Begun in 1796, it was still a work-in-progress when Stuart died in 1828. Leonardo da Vinci had a similar type of success. His incomplete painting The Virgin and Child with St. Anne hangs in the Louvre in Paris, and his unfinished The Adoration of the Magi has been in Florence’s Uffizi Gallery since 1671. I propose that Stuart and da Vinci serve as your role models in the coming weeks. Maybe it’s not merely OK if a certain project of yours remains unfinished; maybe that’s actually the preferred outcome.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Many American women did not have the right to vote until August 18, 1920. On that day, the Tennessee General Assembly became the 36th state legislature to approve the Nineteenth Amendment, thus sealing the legal requirements to change the U.S. Constitution and ensure women’s suffrage. The ballot in Tennessee was close. At the last minute, 24-year-old legislator Harry T. Burns changed his mind from no to yes, thanks to a letter from his mother, who asked him to “be a good boy” and vote in favor. I suspect that in the coming weeks, Aries, you will be in a pivotal position not unlike Burns’. Your decision could affect more people than you know. Be a good boy or good girl.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) created four versions of his iconic artwork The Scream. Each depicts a person who seems terribly upset, holding his head in his hands and opening his mouth wide as if unleashing a loud shriek. In 2012, one of these images of despair was sold for almost $120 million. The money went to the son of a man who had been Munch’s friend and patron. Can you think of a way that you and yours might also be able to extract value or get benefits from a negative emotion or a difficult experience? The coming weeks will be a favorable time to do just that.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “I think I like my brain best in a bar fight with my heart,” says poet Clementine von Radics. While I appreciate that perspective, I advise you to do the opposite in the coming weeks. This will be a phase of your astrological cycle when you should definitely support your heart over your brain in bar fights, wrestling matches, shadow boxing contests, tugs of war, battles of wits, and messy arguments. Here’s one of the most important reasons why I say this: Your brain would be inclined to keep the conflict going until one party or the other suffers ignominious defeat, whereas your heart is much more likely to work toward a win-win conclusion.














SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): When he was 24 years old, Scorpio-born Zhu Yuanzhang (1328-1398) was a novice monk with little money who had just learned to read and write. He had spent years as a wandering beggar. By the time he was 40 years old, he was the emperor of China and founder of the Ming Dynasty, which ruled for 276 years. What happened in between? That’s a long story. Zhu’s adventurousness was a key asset, and so was his ability as an audacious and crafty tactician. His masterful devotion to detailed practical matters was also indispensable. If you are ever in your life going to begin an ascent even remotely comparable to Zhu’s, Scorpio, it will be in the coming ten months. Being brave and enterprising won’t be enough. You must be disciplined and dogged, as well.





SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In 1892, the

influential Atlantic Monthly magazine criticized Sagittarian poet Emily Dickinson, saying she “possessed an extremely unconventional and grotesque fancy.” It dismissed her poetry as incoherent, and declared that an “eccentric, dreamy, half-educated recluse” like her “cannot with impunity set at defiance the laws of gravitation and grammar.” This dire diss turned out to be laughably wrong. Dickinson is now regarded as one of the most original American poets. I offer this story up as a pep talk for you, Sagittarius. In the coming months, I suspect you’ll be reinventing yourself. You’ll be researching new approaches to living your life. In the course of these experiments, others may see you as being in the grip of unconventional or grotesque fantasy. They may consider you dreamy and eccentric. I hope you won’t allow their misunderstandings to interfere with your playful yet serious work.
