pening day at the state legislature is akin to the first day of school. You hear a rousing speech, followed by sessions that briefly touch on what you’ll tackle throughout the year. There might even be treats—and there will certainly be some playground squabbling. And so it was at the opening day of the 2018 short legislative session, which we attended this Monday. Gov. Kate Brown kicked off the official proceedings of Monday’s joint session with her State of the State address—but not before Rep. Knute Buehler held his own prepress conference, blasting the governor for her alleged lack of attention to the foster care crisis in Oregon. Buehler says he’ll add language to an existing bill this session, requesting $50 million to fund a “rapid improvement team” to address issues within the child welfare system. A report from Oregon Secretary of State Dennis Richardson, issued last month, alleges the system has a culture of bullying and intimidation.

In 2015, during her first year as governor, Brown ordered an independent review of the child foster care system and services. “Recent information has come to light that calls into question Oregon’s foster care services and state agency accountability,” Brown said in a Nov. 2015 press release. “This is unacceptable.” While Brown has clearly had this issue on her radar since 2015, nothing like kicking off what’s already sure to be a rousing short session with a bit of political mud-slinging. Brown’s speech began with a personal story about her paternal grandmother’s struggle with her doctor husband’s drug addiction, which forced her to raise four boys largely alone. Still, Brown’s grandmother’s mantra was “education, education, education,”—a mantra Brown now shares as

she rolls out her new “Future Ready Oregon” initiative, aimed at matching jobs in highgrowth areas with the people needing jobs— and job training in Oregon. Brown also touted Oregon’s strides in increasing the graduation rates by 5 percent in her three years as governor, citing a focus on hands-on learning as reasons for that success. That led into talk of the current state of careers in the modern age, where a person tends to change careers—not jobs, but actual career fields—seven times. Brown made mention of her maternal grandfather’s receipt of a pension after 40 years at the same company—which allowed him to retire and live on that pension for 35 years. This would have been the ideal time for Brown to mention the state of pensions in Oregon, and to call the legislature to action to address the shortfall with the Public Employees Retirement System—something she’s worked to address by appointing a task force, called the PERS Unfunded Actuarial Liability Task Force, to review and propose options for making up the $5 billion in payments toward PERS. That task force released a report Nov. 1, which included a series of recommendations detailing funding opportunities of between $4.2 and $6.9 billion, in addition to local government matching funds. One glaring omission from her speech was PERS, which ranks as high as improving education in the state right now, in terms of priorities. We suspect that needed work on this issue will be subsumed in partisan posturing in the run up to the governor’s election. Oregon Republicans appear to be circling the wagons to target Brown, even while the tough work of the short legislative session begs for their focus. It’s an election year and there’s bound to be political posturing. But with a short session and much to be done, we’d hope to see the focus on the actual tasks at hand. SW

I was shocked to hear Republican gubernatorial candidate Knute Buehler say that the newly passed Reproductive Health Equity bill would “essentially make Oregon a magnet state for people to come here for abortion.” That doesn’t sound like someone who respects or would uphold my right to abortion access, and I don’t believe Buehler when he calls himself pro-choice. His claims are meaningless if they are not  reflected in his policies. The discussion is over: he voted against a woman’s right to a safe, legal, abortion, and he’d do it again. We need a champion for women’s health in the governor’s office, and that’s not Knute Buehler. —Kori Sparks 


In the February 1, 2018 issue of the Source pro-snowmobile dude Evan Schwalm concludes in his letter regarding parking at Dutchman Flat Sno-Park, “unless something changes you may soon see me triple parked at the Nordic Center, unloading snowmobiles, and crushing beers, while my cats sniff skiers crotches and lick their burritos.” Thanks, Evan. With your attitude you just gave lots of folks yet another reason to dislike snowmobiles and their riders.   —James Roberts

IN RESPONSE TO DESCHUTES COUNTY SHERIFF FIRES DEPUTY, VIA BENDSOURCE.COM I once witnessed an incident where I questioned the behavior, motive, and actions of the Deschutes county sheriff department. I asked my county commissioner about it and found out that as an elected official, the sheriff answers to no one. This is wrong. No one should be above the law. —Ron Caramella, via Facebook

IN RESPONSE TO BRIDGE BATTLE PART DEUX, 1/25 Bachelor View Rd. is a private patrolled road in a residential zoned area of the city that has large lots and expensive homes. Many residents on this road are opposed to

the pedestrian bridge crossing. Their opposition to the proposed bridge is based solely on environmental impact factors. What other reasons are there to support an opposition agenda? Might the real issue be more social than environmental protection? This city residential zoned area was once relatively remote. In exchange for a promise to the county assessor to grow trees on their property for commercial market sale when the trees are mature, 13 property owners holding more than 30 acres of land on this road were granted and continue to enjoy a low property tax assessment advantage of $77.07 per acre. One property owner paid $22.60 in property taxes in the current year on 3.23 acres of bare land with an assessor Real Market Value of $796,430. (https://dial. Other owners enjoy the same 77.07 per acre assessment on the portion of their land in excess of 1 acre for their residence. This is no longer a remote private city zoned residential area even if the owners of property there are growing trees for commercial sale with an unbelievable property tax advantage in a town that no longer has a mill! Bend is growing. Bob Brell lives on Bachelor View Rd. and has recently seen the impact of growth on his own 5 acre property. The 9.6 acre lot next to his property sold in 2016 for $8,085,000 and there are plans for a 65 home subdivision. Growth is a social issue with environmental impact. Growth in backyards of the

Mt. Bachelor View Rd. area is a fact that the residents probably don’t like but can only oppose on an environmental basis. They have the financial and political resources to do that. In a longer range view of growth there is a likely east/west traffic bridge at the point of the contended pedestrian bridge. Perhaps that is the road block reason for the wording that there be no bridge crossing. When? It is a function of growth and how long the line of cars gets waiting to cross the river. Perhaps the unstated agenda of opposition by a few to the pedestrian crossing is to inhibit a future crossing of a much greater number of river crossers? —Tim Lester, via BENDSOURCE.COM

I’m still baffled by the decision to not expand Dutchman Flat. We need to revisit the on-snow recreation plan again, today’s options aren’t working, just like they haven’t worked for the last decade. In response to the dog comments: this isn’t entirely true. Dogs are allowed in Dutchman for the purpose of skijoring in harness on groomed snowmobile roads with a (free) permit. But yes, dogs are not allowed on Tumalo (read the signs, people) and people do need to follow the rules. Dog-friendly recreation needs to be part of the plan as well. We can do better! —Lindsey Clark, via Facebook



Got Local?


By Chris Miller


he “Buy Local” movement has its roots in the foodie movement—but a similar trend exists among the expanding number of people who purchase legal marijuana. They want to know their grower, or at least know where their favorite strain of Purple Kush comes from. La Pine-based Pangaea Organics, a Tier 1 producer—or micro producer, which doesn’t have greenhouses that light up the evening sky—just got licensing to produce as well as process medical marijuana in Deschutes County. The company’s founder, Joseph C. Escobar, said keeping it local is a main focus. “Our main goal is what’s efficient,” Escobar told the Source. “It makes the most sense to be as present as possible in your own backyard.” Escobar said Pangaea sells from La Pine to Bend and only as far as Prineville. “We are very selective with the dispensaries we work with,” he said. County Concerns The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office has a different opinion on localism when it comes to your weed. Sheriff Shane Nelson has come out publicly, denouncing legal marijuana grows in the county, even though they’re voter approved. In a video on the KTVZ website, Nelson said that because marijuana is still classified as illegal federally, he does not want growing operations in Deschutes County. Currently, there are 56 active licenses in Deschutes County, including one lab, 10 processors, 18 producers and a total of 27 retailers and wholesalers. In addition, there are 145 applications waiting to be processed, 70 of which are producers. But, if the sheriff has his way. … “The sheriff is very clear he doesn’t want marijuana grows in Deschutes County,” Deschutes County Public Information Officer and Records Supervisor, Sgt. William Bailey said. “He’s received calls from many citizens that live here that are unhappy about [grow operations.]” Escobar, whose business is located two doors down from the Oregon State Police office in La Pine, said while he understands the frustrations of some in the county, he doesn’t agree with the sheriff’s remarks. “They’re trying to put a chokehold on something that’s already in effect,” he said. The final meeting between Deschutes County Commissioners and other state agencies about Oregon’s controversial cash crop as part of the County’s marijuana evaluation project took place in front of about 30 people Jan. 29. Although not everyone in the room was bright eyed and bushy tailed, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission gave a presentation updating the state’s recreational marijuana program, then answered

commissioners’ questions and public comments. Over the course of the last few weeks, the Commission has met with the Oregon Department of Agriculture—the agency that administers many programs that affect marijuana producers and processors—as well as meeting with the DCSO and the OLCC. The meetings have covered a wide range of issues, from water use to proposed changes in code enforcement that would affect the OLCC and local law enforcement. Currently, the bulk of code enforcement is complaint based—like when a member of the public calls law enforcement or the OLCC in regard to a growing operation, such as a complaint about odor, for example, or a minor purchasing from a dispensary. During the meeting with DCSO, county commissioners expressed the desire to move toward a more proactive model of enforcement, including actively searching for illegal grows and investigating permitted growing operations. This would increase the need for more law enforcement staffing and other resources.

“They’re trying to put a chokehold on something that’s already in effect.” —JOESEPH ESCOBAR Currently, the DCSO has one deputy assigned to cannabis-related code enforcement. According to Bailey, the sheriff’s office is looking to add one more fulltime position for code enforcement, but the timeline is unclear at this point. Bailey said funding for the new position will come from a combination of sheriff’s office personnel budget and county money. He said to date, the sheriff’s office hasn’t received a single dollar from the $85 million in marijuana tax money dispersed last year. Joy Krawczyk, communications operations manager at the Oregon Department of Revenue, told the Source that Deschutes County has received $442,646 from marijuana tax revenue collected between Jan. 4, 2016 and Nov. 30, 2017. Krawczyk said the money is distributed like so: Counties receive 10 percent of total marijuana tax revenues. If a county opts out of allowing growing operations, it isn’t eligible for the 5 percent of the tax revenue based on state grow canopy; if a county opts out of the other legal operations— wholesale, processing or retail—there goes another 5 percent in tax revenue. Still, it’s true that the money hasn’t touched the sheriff’s budget, because according to Deschutes County spokesperson Whitney Hale, the county hasn’t yet made a determination of how the money will be spent. Steven Marks, OLCC’s executive director, said the proposed enforcement changes are different than how

the agency patrols liquor infractions. “Liquor is mostly complaint based,” Marks said. Marks said part of the problem with enforcing pot laws is the newness of the program, and the many different types of enforcement, from labs and growing operations to sales. He said his agency splits enforcement on labs—the most difficult to enforce—with the Oregon Health Authority. Another issue with code enforcement, especially east of the Cascades, is staffing. Currently there’s only one OLCC inspector in Deschutes County, and that person is responsible for all the other eastern counties. When the voters of Oregon decided to legalize medical and recreational marijuana, the cost of the drug plummeted as legal weed shrunk the black market’s share. Marks said the current cost of 1 gram of marijuana sold in dispensaries is about $6. He said new regulations and enforcement shouldn’t affect the pricing significantly. “Enforcement is pretty affordable for the overall cost,” he said. “Competition in the market is more the driving force around price,” Marks added. “We make more money on alcohol than we used to, not because we sell more; it’s because we sell more expensive alcohol. I think the marijuana market will do the same.” Federal Concerns In January, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded the Cole Memorandum, written by President Obama-era Deputy Attorney General James Cole, which directed “enforcement of state law by state and local law enforcement and regulatory bodies should remain the primary means of addressing marijuana-related activity.” According to a news release by Sen. Ron Wyden, along with Sen. Jeff Merkley, Rep. Earl Blumenauer, Rep. Peter DeFazio and 50 other legislators, Sessions’ actions are putting jobs, small businesses, state infrastructure, consumers, minorities and patients at risk. Sessions’ new memorandum gives “prosecutorial discretion” to U.S. attorneys and states that “marijuana activity is a serious crime.” According to a letter Wyden and his peers wrote to President Donald Trump, they believe the passing of laws in Oregon, and the other states that allow legal marijuana use, have helped eliminate the blackmarket sale of marijuana, thus allowing law enforcement to focus on real threats to public health and safety. “This action by the Department of Justice has the potential to unravel efforts to build sensible drug policies that encourage economic development as we finally move away from antiquated practices that have hurt disadvantaged communities,” the legislators wrote.  SW

Single in Bend

Rockin’ Out with my Pockets Out A non-typical Bendite, single on another V-Day By Jared Rasic

I AM NOT A TYPICAL BENDITE—athFinding just the right cuteness level at Painted Hills.

Entry into the Disneyland Frat Getting recognition as a female in an outdoorsy community By MW Hill

BEND’S VERSION OF GIRL MEETS BOY is often played out under the veiled equality

of the outdoor industry—where women are totally included, “as long as. …” My gender cohort and best friend describes the “as long as” clause nicely, saying, “As long as you’re cute, but not too cute. Like naturally cute, but no makeup. Chill, but not too chill.” The ideal outdoorsy. She needs to be capable enough to pull her own weight—because men aren’t going to do everything for her—because we are all equal, right? But she needs to be chill enough to not use the word feminist or acknowledge micro aggressions or speak her mind. If you thought mainstream Western society was built for boys (workplace, bars, educational institutions), times that by 1 million for the outdoor industry. How often has a male coworker said, explicitly or implicitly, “We should really hire a professional to do that…” for a task in my job description, as the director of a department? To be trusted in your role in the outdoor industry, you have to work twice as hard as the males surrounding you and never make a mistake. My best friend and class 5 raft guide explains: “When male raft guides show up to row commercial trips for a company, they are automatically accepted until they make a heinous mistake. Females, on the other hand, have to prove themselves first and if they make one mistake, no one will ever forget it.” In a post-industrial revolution dystopia, females are also subject to the paid one-third less rule. Women have to work doubly hard to prove themselves worthy for admission to this outdoor Disneyland fraternity—for which they will never be reimbursed equally. Give me the carrot already! If it isn’t direct exclusion from the men’s proverbial locker room, it’s silently complicit exclusion. When I state that because I am a woman I am automatically perceived to have certain limitations; my bros give me the 1,000-yard stare or get up and leave the conversation. To boot, because there is a scarcity of women in the outdoor community, your position as an object of sex is exacerbated. Return to the “as long as” clause. Remember, if you wear short shorts, even once—even when it’s bloody hot—well, you asked for the attention, didn’t you? Meanwhile, ubiquitous acceptance of males skinny dipping mid-day or relieving their bladders in plain view. Perhaps kicked off by Donald Trump’s pussy grabbing comments and Harvey Weinstein’s widely covered-up predatory escapades, it seems an unraveling has begun. In the wake of #Metoo, Kristen Rouparian’s viral New Yorker fiction piece, Cat Person, Babe. com’s tell-all about Aziz Ansari’s bad bedside manner, and Oprah’s Golden Globes speech, my narrative will not be minimized. I am a sleeper agent waiting for the shock waves from this unraveling to hit my bubbled community. When the outdoor industry, and dating at large, actually become open forums where women are believed when they talk about their experiences, my eagerness to enter the dating arena, and celebrate Valentine’s Day, for that matter, will change. Incentivize me. SW

Women and people of all genders, maybe do not date other people with jeans that look like this.

letic, outdoorsy, socially outgoing and extraordinarily good looking. Me: I watch movies for a living, think the sun is overrated, like about three people and am decidedly more Rubenesque than statuesque. I’m a decent kisser and a good listener, but I’ll never be graceful or textbook handsome; I’m much more of a Kevin Smith than a Kevin Bacon. There’s a fat joke in there somewhere. Being single in Bend is like living in a fish bowl where I’m the glass all the sexy, mingling fish are looking through. I don’t feel sorry for myself, I’m just... confused. This is the longest I’ve been single for about a decade since I went from an amicable marriage into two long-term relationships, one after the next. I don’t know how to meet women anymore. I’ve never Tindered or Groundered, and most of the dates I’ve gone on from people I met online were from Myspace a decade ago. I’m bad at this. Mingling around meat markets like Seven and Astro grosses me out, so Fridays and Saturdays I’m more likely to rock out with my pockets out at the library or a coffee shop. Since mostly everyone else is at a bar downtown, it doesn’t really help me meet anyone... but I’ve made friends with lots of librarians and baristas. I’m also in that weird zone where women my own age are either married with children, single with children, or not after a bearded film nerd who still reads comics and collects DVDs of ‘80s and ‘90s action movies. I’m what my grandma would call peculiar. I love Bend and I’ve been here since 1999, but I think somewhere, when I wasn’t looking, I slipped out of the Central Oregon demographic and started living in the upsidedown. A Demogorgon in a world of kids with fireworks. I have a few crushes and there’s a woman I really like but am way too shy to speak to, so I think I’ll just enjoy this time to play with my cat, read the books I missed from last year and try not to be hurt when I get ghosted three or four times in a row. I miss being in love, but there’s no hurry. I don’t feel the sands in the hourglass slipping away. Instead, I’ll wait until someone sees me and chooses me anyway, looking past all my weird and random eccentricities and decides I’m worth it. I totally am. Look at all these copies of “Timecop” I have.  SW

40-something and Single And perfectly fine with it By Teafly Peterson

BEING SINGLE IN YOUR 40S is a whole new world of single. In the

Or how to be single and date in the small town of Bend By Anne Pick

AS THE TOKEN, PERPETUALLY SINGLE GIRL in my band of sisters, I have plenty of

experience being single in Bend. Not only did I grow up here (OK, close to here, I am a La Pine High School grad), but I feel like I’ve experienced most of the ways to be single and set up in Bend. Shall we go through the check list? • Be set up with a friend or co-worker of a friend — Check • Meet someone online — Check • Fall for someone at work — Check • Meet someone at a bar — Check • Reconnect with someone from high school who was intimidated by your goth girl look back in the day, but thinks you’re hot now — Check I’m not going to lie: being single in Bend can be really fun, but living and dating in such a small town has disadvantages as well. Do you remember the episode of “How I Met Your Mother,” when Ted seems totally fine after getting left at the altar by Stella, but then busts out the map of Manhattan with all of the blacked out potential places he could run into her? Sorry, Mosby, but try living in Bend and trying to get over someone. No matter which of the checkboxes above you can check as a single or attached person in Bend, odds are you’ve mentally got a blacked-out map of places to avoid. Parties become slightly more awkward when you run into that friend of a friend who you went on one lackluster date with. The places you used to go together with the one you loved now seem haunted by the ghosts of a past life. But on the plus side, you can discover new rad spots to hang out in Bend, as there’s no shortage of places to regain your strength and meet someone new. With new people moving to Bend all the time, it gives us, the perpetually single, a little hope. We may not have met “the one” yet, but there are good odds if they aren’t in Bend now, they will be soon. I’ve got my fingers crossed for that at least — and in the meantime I’ll continue my love affair with this amazing city and the incredible music scene. SW

Map of Avoidance

Marked on this map, places we don’t go.

never-ending list of boxes to tick in life, I’ve never ticked anything other than “single,” or the ever-dreaded “never been married.” I never minded— but a few years ago, while listening to one of Marc Maron’s podcasts, he commented that if you reach your 40s and have never been married, there’s something definitely wrong with you and you need professional help. I was a little taken aback by this declaration by the drug-addicted, twice-divorced, not-truly-successful-until-50 comedian. It likely struck me in such a heavy way, because, even this man, who clearly had lived a life somewhere far outside the “box,” was still preaching a patriarchal value that anyone unmarried by 40 was a deviant. That marriage box is so demanding of being ticked, it fools even the most radical amongst us to think it’s the only box one can tick over 30 and not lose your “cool” card—the biggest non-cult cult I have ever been around. It’s the kind of cult everyone is in and no one understands why you wouldn’t want to join. And Bend, well, Bend is cult city. As an artist, it’s not hard to be an outsider. Often, it’s the place I feel safest—outside the conventions of life that seem to dull my senses. I remember the first time I realized I never wanted to be married. I was 14. My friend Lynn and I were walking downtown in the New England town I grew up in. Walking past a bridal shop, Lynn began to describe her perfect wedding. I thought it was the most horrific thing I’d ever heard. I was doubly surprised it was coming from a friend who openly used the word “feminist” to describe herself in 1989. This would prove to be one of the first times it would be clear I was “abnormal” for not wanting to be married. My 30s felt like one long dinner party discussion about married life—really fucking boring. Mostly stories innocently proclaiming how I would know when it was the “right” person or how I would change my mind when the right person came along or how it would be the last person I suspected and so I needed to remain open. I was often made to feel there was something wrong with me because I didn’t want to be married, long before Marc Maron confirmed it. I argue that not wanting to get married has kept me from certain dramas, like staying with men who were mean or boring. Not wanting to have children was the same. I never once felt I was investing in a relationship for a long-term commitment or wasted a moment of my time. Many relationships ended amicably, before ideas of who we were supposed to be for each other made us bitter. Being single has allowed me space to understand love in a different context than romance and family. To understand what it means to fall in love again and again and again, with friends and nephews and cats. Music. Clouds. Trees. A kind of love that connects you beyond requirement. The understanding of how you can be many different things to many different people—a way you may not have tapped otherwise. SW

Elk Lake Resort has 13 cabins, varying from rustic to luxurious, located around South Sister, Broken Top and Mt. Bachelor. Your stay is a guaranteed unplugged experience with limited cell and internet service. The crystalline lake is stunning in the winter months and you can rent snowmobiles and snowshoes for exploring the wilderness during the day. Add to the romance with a dinner and a cocktail at the resort’s restaurant and bar, with thoughtfully prepared dishes made from sustainable, locally grown food and drinks from regional craft brewers and winemakers. Cabin amenities included fully equipped kitchens, wood stoves and fire-pits for romantic evenings under the stars.

A snowshoe saunter into the wild can lead to a warm, soothing soak.

One divorced family’s V-day tradition By Keely Damara


VALENTINE’S DAY in our house-

VOLUME 22  ISSUE 06  /  February 8, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Won’t You be my Valentines?

hold was a family affair. My parents divorced when we were pretty young, so the practice of giving gifts and chocolates to romantic partners wasn’t what we associated with the holiday. Instead, as my mother put it, we were our mother’s “Valentines.” To preface this story, I have to share that my mother is a huge fan of holidays. Really, she sees every holiday, big and small, as an occasion to decorate and celebrate. On Halloween she was the mother who would create a haunted house in our living room for the neighborhood kids. Sound effects, bobbing for apples, a caramel apple station, pin the eye on the mummy— you name it. Fourth of July, she’d organize the barbecue for the neighborhood block party. Christmas, she’d leave clues around the living room as “evidence” that Santa had visited. A bit of his beard left on the fireplace, half eaten cookies and nibbles on the carrots we left by the fireplace (by the reindeer, of course). She calls my brother and me her “little turkeys,” because we were born on Thanksgiving. For Valentine’s Day, it was all about valuing and showing appreciation for family. We would wake up in the morning to the sweet smell of heart-shaped muffins and the sound of sizzling bacon. Waiting for us on the kitchen table would be gifts set carefully next to three place settings. Each gift, usually wrapped in the gaudiest pink or red cellophane she could find, included a valentine that she chose just for us. While Christmas and Easter gifts tended to be toys or clothes for school, Valentine’s Day gifts were something special she hoped we’d keep into adulthood. For my sister and me, she usually gifted jewelry adorned with cubic zirconia hearts. My brother usually got a watch. As we got older, we enjoyed choosing gifts for each other. Every year, we’d hand pick chocolates for our mother from the local confectionary in Helena, Mont. The Parrot has been around since my mom was a teenager. She’d go after school with friends for a shake after cruising the “Main Drag” (aka Main Street) with whoever was able to borrow their parents’ car that day. Her name is even carved into one of the original wooden booths (a rebel with a beehive). I spoke to my mom about how we celebrated holidays when we were younger and why it was so important to her to celebrate Valentine’s Day with us as a family. She said she wanted her kids to appreciate the holidays and each other. “I wanted every holiday to mean something,” she said. Awwww.  SW

Keeping ‘Happily Ever After’ Hot

13 VOLUME 22  ISSUE 06  /  February 8, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Tips for long-term love By Annette Benedetti

IT WASN’T LUCK that during your senior year of college, the person capable of igniting your passion sat next to you in class. It was divine intervention that brought you and your true love— no—your soul mate, together. The years have passed since the first time your eyes locked in a long, lusty gaze. You’ve bought houses and made babies together, and your evenings have gone from kisses that last until the early morning hours to dozing on the couch and feigning interest in whatever is on the TV every time you twitch awake. You find yourself wondering if the heat is gone forever. Krayna Castelbaum, who has a master’s in health science, is a relationship coach for couples and the owner of Clear Lens Coaching in Bend. She says while desire diminishes over time, it’s not necessarily problematic, and it doesn’t mean the relationship is over. “Use the natural ebb and flow of sexual desire as a call to explore your assumptions about sexuality and relationships together,” says Castelbaum. “Be explorers.” Castelbaum offers the following advice for couples looking to keep things spicy for the long haul.

Source Weekly: What can couples do early on to keep their relationship exciting for years to come? Krayna Castelbaum: Your partner cannot be the source of your…fulfillment. Instead, know what nourishes and enlivens you, stay true to that and bring it home. Your relationship will be enriched. Relying on a partner to approve of and validate your sense of self is a limitation. You’ll find it impossible to be real, authentic and honest in or out of bed. One or the other of you will eventually feel suffocated. This is also important: what’s sought in domestic life stifles eroticism. Eroticism thrives on surprise, novelty, mystery, spontaneity, risk-taking and creative seduction. Domestic life is grounded in consistency, reliability, stability, safety and a certain degree of sameness. Safety and trust certainly open the way for eroticism, though they don’t ignite it.

Broaden your understanding. Sex is a language rich and complex, not just something you do. Your bodies are instruments. If you only play in a narrow range, erotic passion withers. Develop an orchestral appreciation to your erotic life; practice your scales with playful joy. SW: Do you have suggestions for couples struggling with decreased interest in bedroom activities after childbirth or other life stressors? CK: Relax! It’s crazy for us to think that anyone could fulfill the roles of homemaker, breadwinner, scheduler, chauffeur, friend, lover, confidant and co-parent, and have hot-bedroom energy, while simultaneously responding to life challenges. In light of this, can you bring kindness and understanding to one another? Lighten up on all those demoralizing expectations?  SW

Castelbaum’s Tips • Expand your definition of eroticism: drop ideas of intercourse and orgasm as the main event. • Try soft gazing into one another’s eyes. If you do this during sex, you’ll learn a ton. • Look at your partner when you part ways and reunite; greet with kindness. • Appreciate one another’s efforts. • Get into bed at night without computers and cell phones. Hold one another with your eyes and/or your arms. • Send your partner a playfully seductive text without any expectations. • Be a lookout for the best in your partner and yourself. • Over and again, see your partner and yourself with fresh, new eyes.

Escape the weight of the world with “Celtgrass” jams from Irish band We Banjo 3 By Anne Pick


Yvonne Vaughan

as well as Martin and David Howley, also brothers, formed We Banjo 3 in their hometown of Galway, Ireland. Active since 2012, the band is no stranger to American audiences. They’ve even played for former President Barack Obama at the “Friends of Ireland” luncheon in Washington, D.C., in 2016. Now, Scahill and the gang bring their brand of “Celtgrass” jams to the Sisters Folk Fest Winter Concert Series. We Banjo 3 attributes their ability to tour outside of Ireland to the Culture Ireland organization, which helps promote Irish artists worldwide. “The number one difference between Irish and American audiences: Irish audiences will automatically sit at the back of the club,” Scahill says. “Americans want to be in the first row. Once they get into it, they are both the same.

ome people have a soft spot for Irish accents—especially a handful of my girlfriends from high school. I’m not necessarily one of those people. What’s the point of all of this? Well, upon speaking to We Banjo 3’s Enda Scahill, I may have changed my tune. Calling from an Irish phone number, his sweet sincerity and passion for music emanated through his delightful Irish accent. “I’ve been playing banjo since I was 8 years old; I’ve always loved the sound of it,” Scahill says. “We all grew up playing traditional Irish music in our homes. But you can’t really play banjo without listening to American folk music, bluegrass. Even as you go back as far as the minstrel groups. The banjo was an integral part of that.” Scahill and his bandmates, which include his brother, Fergal Scahill,

Enda Scahill, far left, joins bandmates in We Banjo 3 to bring “Celtgrass” jams to the masses. Irish people are really friendly and open, but can be shy. We’ve been coming here since 2012 and have had such a meteoric ride. American audiences are really special. They are open to being entertained, they’ve already bought the ticket, metaphorically and physically.” When I spoke to Scahill, he was taking a break from recording the band’s upcoming new album, “Haven.” Instead of recording in Ireland like they have each of their previous albums, the band wanted to work with sound engineer Frank Marchand. While they toyed with the idea of recording in Nashville or L.A., it was too tempting to work with

Marchand in his Baltimore studio. “Our last three studio albums, we recorded in a bungalow on the side of a hill, on the edge of a lake. It was picturesque and amazing. Now, we’re in an industrial area, but the recording atmosphere, it’s fabulous. We’ve got a lot done in three days.” The next album takes on the notion that music should be a haven for people. “That was always our mission, to provide a really fun, inclusive environment. We’re not political in any way, shape, or form,” Scahill says. “We see our role as an escape. Last summer, we ran a tour called, ‘The Light in the Western Sky,’

bringing awareness to mental health and suicide prevention. People are really willing to talk about it. Of that nature, of that pain, about overcoming, about trying to find a better life. This is the first time the entire album was entirely selfpenned and we’re really excited about that.”  SW We Banjo 3

Get Out — Chvrches — Love is Dead This new single from Scotland-based electro-pop trio Chvrches debuted on Feb. 2 and couldn’t have come at a better time (at least in terms of this playlist). The first single from their upcoming album, “Love is Dead,” “Get Out” starts with the exact beeps and boops necessary for a poppy electronic pick-me-up. Then the lyrics come in and strike a cord of truth from the first verse through the end. Talked ourselves to death Never saying what I wanted Saying what I needed I pushed you to the edge Never knowing what I wanted Knowing what I needed you to say No Room in Frame — Death Cab For Cutie — Kintsugi Ben Gibbard, lead singer and songwriter for Death Cab for Cutie, reflects on a failed relationship, asking, “Was I in your way when the cameras turned to face you? No room in frame. For two.” He felt as though he disappeared in his relationship, which many of us can relate. This song falls perfectly into the reflection phase of a recently ended relationship. Breakin’ Up — Rilo Kiley — Under the Blacklight Fair warning, you may want to save this one until you’re on the verge of breaking through the breakup funk. This celebratory anthem toasts to all of the “pretty words we will never speak, here’s to all the pretty girls you’re gonna meet.” Am I breaking up? Are we breaking up? Is there trouble between the lines? Did your heart break enough? Did it break enough this time? Ooh it feels good to be free Ooh it feels good to be free Ooh it feels good to be free

When it comes down to it, we’ve all experienced heartbreak. For me, indie rock speaks to my soul and assists in the healing process. But sometimes you just need a really good laugh and songs like “Breakin’ Up,” bring a smile to your face, even this close to Singles Awareness Day.  SW

Two Hearts, Two Businesses


he married couple who works together thrives together. OK, this might not prove true for everyone, but it’s worked out well for Pete and Sue Pierce, owners of Postal Connections of America in the Forum Shopping Center in Bend, and Postal Connections Express inside the Walmart in Redmond. The latter store was opened about a year ago. May will mark 20 years for the Bend store. So, how does a couple get along working side by side to run a business? “She’s the boss,” Pete says. Sue chimes in, “No, I’m behind the scenes.” Sue also offers this: “I’ve had friends say, ‘I could never work with my husband.’” But Pete and Sue have managed it just fine over the years. And how does that workload spread out? “I do mostly operations,” Pete says. “She’s the one who makes sure I stay grounded.” As far as job titles are concerned, Pete says, “We’re all co-workers, we don’t do titles. It was a team effort to get it going.” Pete and Sue have been married for 27 years and will celebrate 28 years May 19. Pete threw out the date with no hesitation, and Sue quickly added, “Good

downsides to working as a couple? “It’s hard to take vacations,” Sue says. “It’s putting all your eggs in one basket, but that’s just part of owning your own business.” The couple did work closely together for quite a while—about 17 years— before Sue took another job a couple years ago at Central Oregon Community College, mostly helping veterans tap their education benefits. These days, her time at Postal Connections is limited. Pete says shipping, personal mail boxes and copying services combine to make up about 80 percent of their business. One of the more esoteric services they offer: electronic fingerprinting for background checks. “A lot of those have to be done these days,” Pete says. Of all the independently-owned Postal Connections franchises (37 in 18 states) their store has been number one in sales for the past 12 years. They opened the very first Postal Connections franchise with just one part-time employee and carried on that

way for many years, Pete says. Pete and Sue say their workers are like a family. “We’re really invested in them and they’re invested in us. A lot of them have been here for quite a while,” Sue adds. The couple both spent time working at Kinko’s, with Pete having about 10 years’ experience before they started Postal Connections. Pete originally is from Portland, while Sue was raised in Bend. “We’re Ducks,” Pete claims, explaining that they met as students at the University of Oregon, and then had separate careers in Portland and Bend before joining forces. Pete smiles and shakes his head, admitting that two of their sons are now attending Oregon State University, while a third son is finishing high school. And it can’t be all work and no play. “It’s important to have outside activities,” Sue says. Together, they hike and camp, and Pete also enjoys hunting. “Our goal is to do a lot more kayaking this year,” she adds. SW

end artist and A6 studio member, Jeannette Small, is showcasing a series of mixed-media work that combines etching, linocut, chine collé, painting and stenciling. The elegant work features images of women intertwined with images of bees and cathedrals— an interesting mix, commenting on the nature of the hive. In her soft, dreamlike images, Small showcases the delicate connections between the natural word and the man-made one. She invokes memory and storytelling through the multiple layering of imagery and color. Also on display is a series of work by Salem-based artist, Ann Kresge. Kresge’s installation, built on-site, also explores one’s relationship to space. Says Kresge, “I am concerned with presenting the sacred geometries of the square, cross, spiral, circle and triangle in unified composition.” Her work is directly printed on the wall from relief

printing plates. Often working in book form, Kresge does not shy away from 3D work. The accompanying book from this work, “Sacred Spaces,” features a collaboration with poet Dawn Diaz Wilis. SW » Jeanette Small : Convergence » Ann Kresge: Sacred Spaces

Words and photo by Richard Sitts job! Brownie points!” Pete then revealed that he easily remembers the date because it’s the birthday of Pete Townshend, of The Who. So, what are the payoffs to working as a couple? “The collaborative part is important, bouncing ideas off one another, using the partnership to implement ideas,” Pete says. Sue adds, “We can capitalize on each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and it’s pretty well balanced.” Pete says, “She’s the voice of reason.” “And we like each other,” Sue responds. “She gets me,” Pete says. “And we’re compatible,” Sue counters. “Growing your dream together is pretty exciting,” Sue adds. Do they have any advice for other couples considering going into business together? “Just play to your strengths,” Pete says, and Sue immediately blurts, “And communicate!” “If you do that, you’ll do great. And have a sense of humor,” Pete continues. One more thing: “Don’t take work home with you,” he says. And Sue offers, “Don’t get too high on the ups, and don’t get too low on the downs.” Speaking of which, are there any

Valentine’s Day Without Reservation

Five finger-licking ideas to celebrate your love long-stemmed forks to take turns feeding each other luscious bites of cheese covered bread, veggies and apples. Take sips of the remaining kirsch and delight in the subtle flavors of cherry—another aphrodisiac. Cheese is the traditional Swiss interpretation of fondue but melting chocolate in the pot would be a sensual dessert with berries, cream puffs and angel food cake. A “friend” told me if you run out of plates, warm chocolate can be served on the body. See where this is going?


alentine’s Day is also called the Feast of St. Valentine—but in this case, “feast” isn’t meant in the meal sense, but instead an annual religious celebration dedicated to a particular saint. An actual feast is more fitting though, because many of us are going to restaurants to celebrate the holiday. Valentine’s Day is the second busiest day of the year at restaurants (Mother’s Day is the busiest). The majority of restaurants are offering a special prix fixe menu for the holiday, and without reservations, the pickins may be slim. Here’s how you can show your valentine that your love is unique, even without a restaurant reservation. Fool around in the kitchen If you both enjoy cooking, the kitchen can be a hot, steamy place for you and your sweetheart. While you’re prepping the main course pour some Oregon pinot noir and talk about what you really want for dessert. Since you’re in control of the kitchen, slip in a few aphrodisiac ingredients such as oysters, chocolate, chili peppers, honey, figs and strawberries. Make sure to share little tastes along the way;

you want to make sure your partner is satisfied. Get handsy, go primal Share a romantic dinner without any utensils. Eating with your hands originated in the Indian mind-body health system, Ayurveda. It’s believed our bodies harmonize with the elements of nature and our hands hold the power of the five elements: space, air, fire, water and earth. Picking up your food by joining all five fingers together is supposed to improve your consciousness of the food; you’ll be more aware of the temperature, texture and ultimately the taste. Try some of these finger-licking foods with your lover: barbecue ribs, chicken wings, empanadas, sushi or tacos. Who knows, improving consciousness over dinner may lead to heightened consciousness in the bedroom. Oh my, are we blushing yet? Melt into each other You may think eating with your hands is uncivilized, so fondue is an intimate alternative. Over a warm pot of gooey, kirsch-infused cheese you can stare into each others’ eyes. Use the

The Drum and Guitar Shop

Get the restaurant, keep your privacy Sitting with a bunch of strangers at a restaurant isn’t very intimate. If you really want to dine with privacy so that no one can see what’s happening under the table, bring the restaurant to you. Traditional catering companies such as Blue Bite Catering, Bowtie Catering and Country Catering can hook you up, but your favorite restaurant might, too. All you have to do is ask. At home you can guarantee you’ll get that seat in front of the fireplace. If your table doesn’t fit there, lay a tablecloth down and have dinner on the floor. Don’t have a fireplace? Go crazy with candles or build a virtual fire by turning on Fireplace for Your Home on Netflix. Intimacy al fresco Central Oregon is filled with outdoor enthusiasts, so the most romantic place for a lot of you may be the great outdoors. Bring dinner with you to your favorite spot in the forest. It’s simple and easy to fill your backpack with a blanket and a picnic of cheese, charcuterie, fruit, olives, crackers and a bottle of wine or that expensive ale you’ve been saving for a special occasion. The top of Bessie Butte is a great place for a picnic right now; with a round trip hike of only 1.5 miles, it doesn’t take long to summit. Get there just before sunset and you’ll be rewarded with a pink, purple and blue watercolor sky and views of the Cascades and miles of green, mounded buttes. SW

Kickstarter-Funded Picky Oats Now Available When Picky Bars, the Oregon-based energy bar company founded by professional athletes Jesse Thomas, Lauren Fleshman, and Steph Bruce, went to Kickstarter to back their new performance oatmeal, they were fully funded in under 10 hours. Apparently, the community really wanted some gluten-free, vegan Picky Oats. The product is available at specialty retailers, online and at Natural Grocers. Made with organic ingredients and with 10 or more grams of protein, the oats come in three flavors: Can’t Beet Chocolate; Game, Set, Matcha!, and How ‘Bout Dem Apples— flavors developed through a partnership with Elyse Kopecky, the New York Times Bestselling co-author of “Run Fast, Eat Slow,” who’s also a Bend local.

Coffee Shop Forced to Relocate Megaphone Coffee Co. was a gem of a tiny coffee shop on the west side next to Foxtail Bakeshop on Columbia Street. They served espresso drinks and roasted coffee to sell to wholesale partners, including Spoken Moto. They closed their doors Jan. 31, sharing via Facebook it was for reasons outside of their control. Owner Peter West said, “We cannot express how deeply appreciative we are to all of you who have believed in us since day one; believed in our coffee, believed in our service, believed in our employees and believed in our vision. While our current shop is smaller than Beyonce’s closet, we have managed to foster and grow the greatest of relationships with our neighborhood, customers, wholesale partners and local craftsmen and women who we have had the pleasure of highlighting their goods. For this we are truly grateful.” This isn’t it for Megaphone Coffee Co., though—they’re still roasting and selling beans wholesale while searching for a new home base.

Strokes SCREEN Different Celebrate Valentine’s Day your way By Jared Rasic 37


BDSM Secretary (2002): This shouldn’t be a hot take but: the “Fifty Shades” books wouldn’t know a real sub/dom relationship if it dripped candle wax all over their nipples. In fact, the story of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele leans much closer to abuse than it does a healthy BDSM relationship. Enter “Secretary,” a painfully erotic story of Lee Holloway (Maggie Gyllenhaal) a submissive secretary and her dominant lover and boss, E. Edward Grey (James Spader). “Fifty Shades” author E.L. James ripped off the most romantic and sexy film about BDSM ever made and “Secretary” is the perfect ice breaker for a partner interested in adding a little pain to their pleasure. Also, E.L. James should be sued. Hard. Polyamory A Home at the End of the World (2004): Having that discussion about adding someone to a relationship is almost impossible to have. When you realize it’s not a threesome you want, but an actual polyamorous coupling,

VOLUME 22  ISSUE 06  /  February 8, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

ver the years, I’ve worked at several different video stores and movie theaters. I’ve seen couples deeply in love before a movie have a possibly relationship-ending argument by the time it was over. That’s why when you plan what movie to watch with your s/o (especially on Valentine’s Day), it’s always smart to choose a film that will inspire an interesting discussion without necessarily guaranteeing a brutal fight. In that spirit, here are a few movies that will help grease the wheels of serious conversation in your relationship.

Have Maggie Gyllenhaal, Colin Farrell, Marcello Mastroianni and Jeanne Moreau over for V-Day.

it’s a scary and possibly isolating feeling to have by yourself. “At Home at the End of the World” tells the story of two best friends (Colin Farrell & Dallas Roberts) who meet an older woman (Robin Wright) and decide to spend the rest of their lives together. The film offers a real glimpse into what a poly life can be like, while also leaving enough open to inspire some powerful conversations between couples. Rescuing Relationships La Notte (1961): Michelangelo Antonioni has delved into marriage with his work before, but “La Notte” shows

one on life support in a way that feels desperately honest. It’s easy to spend months trying to bring back something that’s already dead. “La Notte” reminds the audience what that looks like and, in a way, gives them permission to say goodbye. Sometimes only one person is ready to let go. “La Notte” really helps explore what that looks like in a relationship or marriage. Seeking Love 50 First Dates (2004): Yeah, an Adam Sandler movie. Hear me out. Sometimes it can be hard to tell our partner how much we truly love them either because

we’re afraid of how much they mean to us or a dozen other reasons connected to our own perceived shortcomings. The metaphor of falling in love with someone with short term memory loss, whose memory resets every single morning, is a heartbreaking, but also beautiful one. Yes, seeing the confusion and knowing everything that came before is gone would be rough, but getting to watch that person fall in love with you every day would be a joy. For someone struggling to say how much they love their partner, they can always look to this goofy flick with a massive heart and say: “This much. I love you this much.”  SW | 541-617-1900

Droughts and Summer Smokeouts OUTSIDE Winter The weather’s effect on the outdoor industry in Central Oregon By K.M. Collins Lucas Alberg


In terms of business, David Marchi, mountain guide and owner of Crow’s Feet Commons, says, “I can’t help but feel like I am a snow farmer. Crow’s Feet sets aside a large amount of financial resource and it really only works when the snow cooperates.” Despite this season’s snow shortage, Marchi takes an optimistic approach, advocating for Alpine Tour skiing and modified expectations. “Head up Leeway at Mount Bachelor and ski a groomed run down, or pop over to the mountains across Century. I think that the act of skiing is therapeutic in itself… Nobody has a bad day after a day of sliding on snow.” Though primarily a backcountry shop, Crow’s Feet has been favoring downhill skiing, given the snow conditions. Practicing on lift laps is a good worst choice. Marchi says, “On a solid pair of carving skis… resort skiing is the only way to really bang out the vertical and allows you to work on your technique,” and also prepare you for out of bounds. ​Although foot traffic downtown near his brick-and-mortar shop has been busy, and ski rentals and demos have been available since Thanksgiving weekend, Marchi notes, “Mountain biking, and gravel road cycling has definitely been on people’s minds and we are seeing much more business in that realm than we have in years past.” Marchi reminds recreationalists that some roads are usually too dusty in the summer for cycling. However, currently, frozen ground and less-than-normal precipitation have collided to meld a perfect riding surface on many dirt roads. Echoing Estes, Marchi recommends a cyclocross bike with wider, knobbier tires and disc brakes for precision handling. He lists Maston, Peterson Ridge and Horse Butte/Ridge as locations to check out. With particulate matter reaching 200 times normal amounts for Bend in August 2017, Marchi also incurred significant losses as an outdoor recreation-based business from the smoke last summer.

Tumalo Creek trail between Skyliners Sno-Park and Tumalo Falls.

Mckeown saw a similar effect with river sports during the smoke-out. “The hazardous air quality from the hundreds of wildfires last summer had an impact on Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe. It pushed many customers to find alternatives to floating the river. We are crossing our fingers and toes for a more friendly fire season this year so we can all get out and enjoy the rivers without a face mask!” Even Estes, amid enthusiasm for winter cycling, acknowledges the potential longterm consequences of a dry winter. “I’m worried about what the snowpack will be like in the summer and what that means for wildfire season.” Of course, it will be impossible to avoid forest fires in the coming summer, if a reasonable snowpack level isn’t banked this winter. This will also affect river-goers, as melt-water dictates river flow rates. Marchi says, “2017 winter was truly an anomaly and this 2018 feels like the norm for the future of Central Oregon. Consistent storm cycles are no longer reliable and we have to take what we can get… even if that means skiing in September (like we did this year!).” Attendees and panel speakers at the Jan. 18 Climate Solutions for Future POW Days wouldn’t disagree with Marchi’s forecast. Panel speakers included cinematographer

and photographer Andy Best; Policy Director for Renew Oregon, Margi Hoffman; Sustainability Manager for 10 Barrel Brewing Co., Emily Edens; Advocacy Manager for Protect Our Winters, Lindsay Bourgoine; and a representative from Mt. Bachelor. The panel spoke to how their livelihoods would be affected if climate change continues unchecked. POW (Protect Our Winters), is a passionate crew of diehards, professional athletes and industry brands mobilizing the outdoor sports community toward positive climate action. Although they focus on educational initiatives, political advocacy and community-based activism, they also put out a specific call to put a price on carbon during the meeting. The City of Bend will have a chance to heed this call, with $175,000 in funding to generate a climate change action plan by 2019. At the moment, the plan will call for a 40 percent reduction in carbon emissions for the city by 2030, a lofty goal that will almost certainly include public and private purchase of carbon credits. Meanwhile, cap-and-invest Clean Energy Jobs legislation (SB 1507 and HB 4001) is before the Oregon Legislature, including a proposal for a market-based carbon pricing program that’s also intended to keep Oregon businesses competitive.

yping out a memo, engrossed in the monotony of clicking keys, Beau Estes, digital marketing director for the Old Mill District, breaks out in a grin. He’s bursting to share how great the mountain biking has been this winter. With a twinkle in his eye, Estes explains, “I feel bad for the skiers, but the gravel riding has been amazing. “In early December, a buddy and I took back roads that ran parallel with Mrazek all the way up to Tumalo Falls. The snow was light enough you could ride the whole thing on a [cyclo] cross bike. Sizemore, a dirt road between Bend and Sisters, has been perfect.” I rewound to the day before, caching a mental photo of the gouges in my rock snowboard after a run through the trees off Mt. Bachelor’s Cloudchaser—fluoro-pink base bits dangling in concentric curls of confetti. Mine is not a unique tale; off-piste this season has been unkind. Alas, I can’t afford a mountain or cyclocross bike at the moment. This sort of conversation is happening all over Central Oregon: How to make the best of the winter drought? What sorts of alternative recreation are locals engaging in, with snowfall non-existent until recent weeks? “I absolutely loved the intensity of last winter,” says Christina Mckeown, artist and human resources director at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe. “Which was great for my backcountry ski habit, but this winter has been rad in its own way. Between the warm, sunny days paddling local whitewater and the dry hiking trails, I’m relishing the outdoor opportunities!” Climber Jeffery Pinley, a server at Barrio eatery, gave up on snow sports long ago. “I used to snowboard a lot, but the costs of day tickets and the season pass isn’t worth it for me. Even if the snow conditions were better, I would still be spending my time climbing at Smith… I definitely notice when snow conditions are good, there are less people in the park.”

Hemp Homes?


approved by building codes. The industry is growing with pioneers taking the leap ahead of the process— just like those who opened dispensaries before cannabis was legalized in some states. The movement is definitely spreading, with a Washington company retrofitting homes with it and Jnzl / Left Hand Hemp in Denver completing a permitted structure in Colorado. There are other projects and more information to be found online by searching Hempcrete. Hempcrete uses industrial hemp, but there’s also the potential of recycling cannabis waste from larger outdoor grow operations. There are currently waste recycling programs that use the woody fibers for making treeless paper and it’s likely it could also be used for building materials.

ccording to a recent New York Times article, the legalization of cannabis in many areas is leading to increased consideration of hemp as a building material. Hemp has been used in structures going back to ancient times, and now there are homes being built with Hempcrete— a mixture of the woody Hempcrete wall from Singapore. fibers of the hemp plant with lime that produces a natural, lightweight concrete. Hempcrete is used primarily as an insulating material and cannot substitute for concrete in a foundation. Because it’s not rigid, it’s more resistant to earthquakes than regular concrete. Other advantages: it’s non-toxic and termite, mold and mildew resistant. There have been numerous structures built using Hempcrete, but the problem is that it has not yet been certified as

Back in, say, 539 B.C. in Sumer, if you wanted to tell somebody you were “laughing out loud,” you’d have to dispatch your eunuch across town with the message on a cuneiform tablet. Okay, so the “tablets” are way more tricked out these days, but oh, how far we haven’t come. Texting can be a great way to get to know somebody—somebody who can’t talk on the phone because they’re hiding in a closet from kidnappers in a Liam Neeson movie. However, assuming neither of you is in immediate danger of being sold into sex slavery by the standard swarthy Hollywood terrorists, you should hold off on any textathons until after you put in some solid face-to-face time. Sure, in texting, it seems like all sorts of information is getting “bloop!”ed back and forth. However, you end up missing some vital elements—tone of voice, emotion, body language—that you’d have in person or even FaceTiming on your phone.  People shrug that off: “No biggie…I’ll just see all that stuff when we meet.” Well, there’s a problem with that. “Nature,” it’s said, “abhors a vacuum,” and it seems the human brain isn’t so hot on it, either. Research by neuroscientist Michael Gazzaniga suggests that when people lack information, their brain helps them by making up a narrative that seems to make sense. So there’s a good chance your brain is going to be your helpful little servant and fill in the missing bits—with ideas about a person that may not correspond all that closely with reality. In other words, you’re accidentally onto something with your dislike of text-athons. That said, the telephone isn’t the best way to get to know somebody, either—not even via FaceTime, which only gives you a partial picture. That’s why I think you and anyone you’re considering dating should communicate minimally online or by phone and get together in person ASAP.  Ideally, your first date should be three things: cheap, short, and local—making it low-cost in time, money, and, on some occasions, “lemme outta here, you sick pumpkin latte-slurping degenerate!” (Apologies to any degenerates who don’t befoul their latte with autumn

Febreze.) Tell guys your preference, and don’t be swayed by texting aficionados who insist that you simply MUST engage in marathon text sessions before meeting somebody… because…because safety! Sure, meet your dates in public places (rather than have them pop by your place so they can zip-tie you and stuff you in their trunk). The reality is, texting somebody till your fingers bleed is not the equivalent of an FBI report on their trustworthiness—though it will leave you well-prepared to testify at The Hague on their war crimes against the apostrophe.

Kinking Outside The Box My wife and I have our differences in bed. Let’s say that I like A and she likes B. So we alternate -- A one time and B the next -- meaning we’re each only satisfied half the time. Is this a smart compromise? — Curious Relationships do take compromise— especially when one of you’s in the mood for foreplay with whipped cream and strawberries and then a glance at the calendar reveals: “Oh, crap. It’s Medieval Torture Device Monday.” As for whether your sex compromise is “smart,” it depends. Research by Amy Alkon social psychologist Shelly Gable finds that in a relationship, you can do the exact same activity on your partner’s behalf—say, picking up their thumbscrews from the welder—and have it be good or bad for the relationship, depending on your motivation.  Couples in Gable’s studies were happiest when partners’ efforts for each other were driven by “approach” rather than “avoidance” goals. “Approach” involves moving in a positive direction, making an effort for positive reasons—such as barking like a gibbon in bed because you love your partner and want them to be happy. “Avoidance” involves doing it to prevent rejection or conflict (like being exiled to the couch for three days). An “approach” approach to sex, especially, appears to pay off. Social psychologist Amy Muise found that partners who took pleasure in giving their partner sexual pleasure “felt more satisfied and committed both at the … time and three weeks later.” The message in all of this? A smart sex compromise runs on enthusiasm for rocking each other’s world in bed—even if the thing your partner’s into plays for you like “How ‘bout we sneak out to my car for a quick endoscopy?”

WWW.OREGONWINTERFEST.COM room, whose scientific name is *Lactarius rubidus,* is a burnt orange color. It’s small to medium-sized and has a convex cap. But there its resemblance to other mushrooms ends. When dried out, it tastes and smells like maple syrup. You can grind it into a powder and use it to sweeten cakes and cookies and custards. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, this unusual member of the fungus family can serve as an apt metaphor for you right now. You, too, have access to a resource or influence that is deceptive, but in a good way: offering a charm and good flavor different from what its outer appearance might indicate.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): According to ancient Greek writer Herodotus, Persians didn’t hesitate to deliberate about important matters while drunk. However, they wouldn’t finalize any intoxicated decision until they had a chance to re-evaluate it while sober. The reverse was also true. Choices they made while sober had to be reassessed while they were under the influence of alcohol. I bring this to your attention not because I think you should adhere to similar guidelines in the coming weeks. I would never give you an oracle that required you to be buzzed. But I do think you’ll be wise to consider key decisions from not just a coolly rational mindset, but also from a frisky intuitive perspective. To arrive at a wise verdict, you need both.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A grandfather from

ARIES (March 21-April 19): British athlete Liam Collins is an accomplished hurdler. In 2017, he won two medals at the World Masters Athletics Indoor Championships in South Korea. Collins is also a stuntman and street performer who does shows in which he hurtles over barriers made of chainsaws and leaps blindfolded through flaming hoops. For the foreseeable future, you may have a dual capacity with some resemblances to his. You could reach a high point in expressing your skills in your chosen field, and also branch out into extraordinary or flamboyant variations on your specialty.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When he was 32, the man who would later be known as Dr. Seuss wrote his first kid’s book, *And To Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street.* His efforts to find a readership went badly at first. Twenty-seven publishers rejected his manuscript. On the verge of abandoning his quest, he ran into an old college classmate on the street. The friend, who had recently begun working at Vanguard Press, expressed interest in the book. Voila! *Mulberry Street* got published. Dr. Seuss later said that if, on that lucky day, he had been strolling on the other side of the street, his career as an author of children’s books might never have happened. I’m telling you this tale, Taurus, because I suspect your chances at experiencing a comparable stroke of luck in the coming weeks will be extra high. Be alert!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A survey of British Christians found that most are loyal to just six of the Ten Commandments. While they still think it’s bad to, say, steal and kill and lie, they don’t regard it as a sin to revere idols, work on the Sabbath, worship other gods, or use the Lord’s name in a curse. In accordance with the astrological omens, I encourage you to be inspired by their rebellion. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to re-evaluate your old traditions and belief systems, and then discard anything that no longer suits the new person you’ve become.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): While serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Don Karkos lost the sight in his right eye after being hit by shrapnel. Sixty-four years later, he regained his vision when he got butted in the head by a horse he was grooming. Based on the upcoming astrological omens, I’m wondering if you’ll soon experience a metaphorically comparable restoration. My analysis suggests that you’ll undergo a healing in which something you lost will return or be returned.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The candy cap mush-


New Jersey decided to check the pockets of an old shirt he didn’t wear very often. There Jimmie Smith found a lottery ticket he had stashed away months previously. When he realized it had a winning number, he cashed it in for $24.1 million -- just two days before it was set to expire. I suspect there may be a comparable development in your near future, although the reward would be more modest. Is there any potential valuable that you have forgotten about or neglected? It’s not too late to claim it.

VOLUME 22  ISSUE 06  /  February 8, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Charles Nelson Reilly was a famous American actor, director, and drama teacher. He appeared in or directed numerous films, plays, and TV shows. But in the 1970s, when he was in his forties, he also spent quality time impersonating a banana in a series of commercials for Bic Banana Ink Crayons. So apparently he wasn’t overly attached to his dignity. Pride didn’t interfere with his ability to experiment. In his pursuit of creative expression, he valued the arts of playing and having fun. I encourage you to be inspired by his example during the coming weeks, Aquarius.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The U.S. Geological Survey recently announced that it had come up with improved maps of the planet’s agricultural regions. Better satellite imagery helped, as did more thorough analysis of the imagery. The new data show that the Earth is covered with 618 million more acres of croplands than had previously been thought. That’s 15 percent higher than earlier assessments! In the coming months, Libra, I’m predicting a comparable expansion in your awareness of how many resources you have available. I bet you will also discover that you’re more fertile than you have imagined.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 1939, Scorpio comic book writer Bob Kane co-created the fictional science-fiction superhero Batman. The “Caped Crusader” eventually went on to become an icon, appearing in blockbuster movies as well as TV shows and comic books. Kane said one of his inspirations for Batman was a flying machine envisioned by Leonard da Vinci in the early 16th century. The Italian artist and inventor drew an image of a winged glider that he proposed to build for a human being to wear. I bring this up, Scorpio, because I think you’re in a phase when you, like Kane, can draw inspiration from the past. Go scavenging through history for good ideas! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I was watching a four-player poker game on TV. The folksy commentator said that the assortment of cards belonging to the player named Mike was “like Anna Kournikova,” because “it looks great but it never wins.” He was referring to the fact that during her career as a professional tennis player, Anna Kournikova was feted for her physical beauty but never actually won a singles title. This remark happens to be a useful admonishment for you Sagittarians in the coming weeks. You should avoid relying on anything that looks good but never wins. Put your trust in influences that are a bit homely or unassuming but far more apt to contribute to your success.










CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A Chinese man named Wang Kaiyu bought two black-furred puppies from a stranger and took them home to his farm. As the months passed by, Wang noticed that his pets seemed unusually hungry and aggressive. They would sometimes eat his chickens. When they were two years old, he finally figured out that they weren’t dogs, but rather Asian black bears. He turned them over to a local animal rescue center. I bring this to your attention, Capricorn, because I suspect it may have a resemblance to your experience. A case of mistaken identity? A surprise revealed in the course of a ripening process? A misunderstanding about what you’re taking care of? Now is a good time to make adjustments and corrections.
