ast Wednesday, the Bend City Council voted five-to-two to admit Jeff Payne, owner of Panterra Homes and the president of the Central Oregon Builder’s Association, to the city planning commission. According to COBA's website, its mission is to “represent the building industry before government and the community.” There is always concern when an individual who serves as a lobbyist moves into government service. It is even more of a problem when that individual leaves one foot in each organization. Unfortunately, only two current city councilors raised that concern last week. Councilor Nathan Boddie stated: “That organization (COBA) poured an enormous amount of money into the recent council campaign for some of the people behind this table. Those are the people that are now appointing him to a citizen body, our planning commission, which is now being tasked with our master plan development and implementation of our UGB, which is itself a process of which that special interest pushed back mightily on.” Councilors in favor of appointing Payne brushed aside the conflict, citing his extensive experience—something other planning commission members had told the council they were looking for. Mayor Casey Roats cited the state law requiring two people involved in real estate to be on a planning commission. City attorney Mary Winters said in this case, “to just be a builder is not a conflict of interest,” and that for Payne to recuse himself in planning commission decision-making, he would have to have a financial interest in a planning decision or project. Councilor Barbara Campbell cited concerns not about Payne being a builder, but his position as president of COBA. Even in a small city where many individuals have

overlapping roles, we share her concerns. Whether Payne will recuse himself from planning decisions is yet to be seen, but the comments by Boddie and Campbell shed light on the problem that arises from PACs meddling in Council elections. According to Oregon Secretary of State campaign finance records, in addition to other contributions, COBA offered $25,000 to the Central Oregon Small Business PAC in April, another $35,750 in June and $30,000 in August. In short, COBA contributed heavily in this latest election cycle under the guise of the C.O. Small Business PAC. In addition to in-kind contributions, Councilor Justin Livingston received five contributions totaling $5,000 from the C.O. Small Business PAC from June through October, and $10,000 from the Bend Chamber PAC in September. Councilor Bill Moseley’s campaign received three contribution totaling $5,000 from the C.O. Small Business PAC, and three contributions totaling $30,000 from the Bend Chamber PAC from September to October. Councilor Sally Russell also received $2500 from the Chamber PAC in September. The Bend Chamber PAC lists among its advocacy council a property attorney, a mortgage broker, a commercial real estate professional and a property management professional, and lists among its legislative committee members a person representing COBA. While we understand that councilors are within their rights to accept campaign funds, and later to vote in favor of commissioners who may have had a hand in contributing those funds, it still doesn’t look good. For the sake of propriety, Mr. Payne should resign from his position as president of COBA if he elects to remain on the planning commission. SW

IN RESPONSE TO, CONNECTING THE DISCONNECT. (2/1) MORE STORIES LIKE THIS. We need to shed more light on the stories that aren’t pretty or comfortable or cater to tourists. Our citizens give the flavor and spice that is Bend. Thank you for doing on the ground journalism with stories like this. — Allison Murphy via bendsource.com I love bringing the reality to light.

COUGAR OPERATION IN LA PINE. For the next phase of its public safety operation in La Pine, I would suggest that Deschutes County Sheriff’s arrest the members of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) Commission who make decisions that result in cougar-human conflicts. All joking aside, I do not dismiss for a moment the sorrow of the people of La Pine whose pets were killed or disparage the efforts of law enforcement to protect them. But, emerging evidence indicates that the type of indiscriminate hunting of Puma concolor sanctioned by ODFW actually increases complaints and depredations of pets and livestock. Research suggests that human hunting pressure disrupts cougar populations by

A year and a half ago my wife and I, like many others, went through the painful process of a miscarriage. While the doctor we worked with was kind and knowledgeable we felt as though we were on a conveyer belt and part of a large and already very taxed system. When the miscarriage occurred on a Friday evening we proceeded to have a lonely, long, and scary weekend. I hope to share our story as a way to highlight a hole that is opening up in our town’s healthcare system. We were lucky enough to get pregnant again and once we found out we were pregnant we chose to switch to the St. Charles Center for Women’s Health where we could work with a team of midwives. We have always been drawn to working with midwives but also felt more comfortable having a hospital birth. Immediately we noticed that our care was incredibly relationship-based and holistic. Our appointments were long in length, focused on all of our well-being, and we consistently felt empowered to make the best decisions for our family. The care we received felt congruent with the warmth and care that we so often find throughout our wonderful Bend community. This was exemplified when we met with Jessica Nelson, CNM after our due date. We were anxious and concerned about what would happen since our boy had not yet arrived and worried about being pressured into an induction. Instead Jessica was incredibly comforting as she normalized the process and explained the risks and benefits of various approaches. She spent an incredible amount of time with us and we left the appointment feeling empowered and cared for. As our due date neared we were nervous that we might not get to work with a midwife as the schedules have been reduced and many of the doctors do not want midwives as part of their team. Luckily our baby boy was born at the Birthing Center at St Charles with the incredible support of the team of nurses and the guidance and calming presence of Certified Nurse Midwife, Hannah Renzi. Luckily my wife went into labor when Hannah was on call

and she proceeded to spend many hours helping my wife through a painful labor and encouraging her to breathe when the baby’s heart rate dropped. While others may have jumped to medical intervention, Hannah used her trusting relationship she had built with my wife over the past nine months to coach her through how best to help our boy’s heart rate recovering. Our boy was born healthy and we cannot express how grateful we are to the nurses and especially Hannah Renzi. We had a wonderful experience and felt that we had professionals who were focused on a holistic, relational approach. The loss of St. Charles Center for Women’s Health in Bend means that parents will not be able to work with a midwife as the attending if they choose to utilize the Birthing Center and that there will only be one clinic in town. I am writing this letter because I am concerned about a glaring hole in our local system that is soon to exist. I feel an incredible sadness for my neighbors and friends who will not have the option we had to work with Jessica Nelson or Hannah Renzi as midwives here in Bend. As Bend grows we need more options not fewer. We also need more medical professionals focused on building meaningful relationships and empowering each of us to take control of our holistic health. I hope that my sharing of our story helps others take action. — Sean Roberts

IN RESPONSE TO, ATTACK OF LA SEXISM (EL NINA COVER 1/26) Your cover graphic of Volume 21, January 26, 2017 is offensive. At a time when women’s rights are under intense attack from powerful people, do we really need our local, supposedly progressive weekly newspaper to use cover graphics that objectify women? Although loosely tied to a story about the El Nino weather pattern, it appears to have been used, as these types of pictures generally are, to increase circulation. At a time when our rights to control our reproductive fate is under severe threat, when women still make less money for the same work as their male counterparts, when sex trafficking is on the rise, when we have a president who denigrates women and openly belittles them and judges them by how they look, do we need The Source to present this type of female objectification to all of the young girls and women in our community? If a woman chooses to present HERSELF in this manner, that is her choice and power. However, your use of the graphic is exploitive. If it were known to increase circulation, would you put a graphic of someone in blackface on the cover, circa 1938? How about an article about all of the

hard working, strong, fabulous women in the region? From our city attorney, to the many women physicians, to the women who help us at the grocery store, to the women teaching our children, to the single moms and working moms who are struggling to get by, to the women who help all over town in organizations such as Neighbor Impact, Bethlehem Inn and Planned Parenthood; there are many to choose from. Those are the stories and graphics the young women of our community need to see on the front page of your paper, not some throw back sexist graphic from 1958. We deserve your respect, your thoughtfulness, and to get out from under objectification, exploitation, sexual assault and harassment, and men in Washington, D.C making decisions about what type of birth control to which we have access. Yes, it is all linked. Don’t make us come down there to picket you with our pussy hats on! You get the boot. — Alison Lynch-Miller, MD

LETTER OF THE WEEK Alison gets the letter of the week for a number of reasons. #1: Because thoughtful dialogue among people of opposing views needs to happen more often. #2: Because we agree with paragraph two, calling for highlighting the great work of local women. All of the orgs mentioned have been given ink here at least once in the past year, and will again. While we maintain that our La Niña cover portrayed a woman of strength and spectral power (who, yes, gasp! is wearing a bikini—is that better or worse than a burqa?!), Alison and I did have a meaningful conversation about how the various generations of feminist movements may or may not agree with our take—and we are OK with that. —Respectfully signed, your single mom, working mom, woman editor.

Newly appointed to the Oregon Arts Commission, Jenny Green is looking forward to the challenge.

Jenny Green Appointed to Oregon Arts Commission Bend artist Jenny Green is known for setting up pop-up contemporary art galleries in Bend and beyond—but now, she’ll also be serving in a key role in Salem. On Jan. 30, the Oregon Arts Commission announced Green’s appointment to the Commission, filling the position previously held by Lawrence Fong of Portland. The former adjunct professor of art history at Central Oregon Community College says she’s excited about this

new role. “I believe deeply in the power of art and its ability to enhance the quality of life not only for artists but for the communities in which they work,” said Green in a Jan. 30 release. “The Oregon Arts Commission strengthens our statewide community through the arts and I want to support this important work.” The nine commissioners, appointed by Oregon’s governor, work to establish policies and public support for the arts as well as determining art needs statewide.

A new school safety tip line is intended to give Oregon students an anonymous method of reporting confidential information about safety issues within the school environment. Oregon State Police announced the availability of SafeOregon on Jan. 31. School officials must take part in a sign-up process before students can use the tip line to share concerns about issues of safety, including threats, fights, drugs, weapons, bullying, self-harm, or any other issues of concern. “To all Oregon students, I want to encourage you to make courageous decisions to break the code of silence and speak out against harmful behaviors before they turn to tragedy,” said state Superintendent Travis Hampton in a Jan 31 release. “We can make a difference in our schools and communities and we are committed to creating a safe and respectful culture to support you.” Students can submit tips anytime day or night through the SafeOregon.com web portal, by email at tip@ safeoregon.com, through the SafeOregon mobile app or by calling or texting 844-472-3367.

To Elect or Not to Elect Back when our community was a logging town the burden of running a mayoral campaign outweighed the need — but with Bend poised to swell 40 percent by 2028, many think that needs to change. “From last review, we’ve gone from 30,000 to a mid-sized city of 87,000,” said Don Leonard, president of the Boyd Acres Neighborhood Association and member of the citizen panel. “We really feel it’s time for a charter review. A serious charter review.” Richard Ross, a panel member who has 30 years of experience in community planning and served 15 years as staff support to two Gresham mayors, says the issues are becoming increasingly complex. “Bend is facing more complex problems than the good old days,” he says. An elected mayor serving for four years may be an ideal way to tackle those intricate issues in a steadfast and progressive manner. Bend 2030 Executive Director Erin Foote Morgan, notes

that Bend doesn’t have a stable and constant representative at the state and federal levels. She points to neighboring cities like Redmond as prime examples of cities that are moving forward quickly because of an invested mayor. “George Endicott is synonymous with Redmond. And it matters to have a face for a city,” said Foote Morgan. Not In It for the Money, Honey The panel also raised the issue of raising the stipend for council members, currently set at $200 and unchanged since 1995. Comparing stipends in similar cities in size and governance, Bend comes in almost dead last. The panel argued that with the long-term issues Bend faces, volunteer counselors have less time to focus and research tricky issues when most have a day job. Although there is a worry that increasing wages might draw career politicians, members argued

represent that area’s changing needs. In the Charter Review Report, 98 percent of participants agreed that councilors from each ward must reside in the area that they represent— a change of pace from the current council where five members live on the west side. Bill Galaway, panel member and member of the SE Neighborhood Association, noted it would strengthen the connection with neighborhood associations. “Maybe two or three neighborhoods would now be in one ward, and it would make them more relevant than today.” The report concluded that residents were in favor of either a four or six ward system, with perhaps two council members and the major not being associated with any ward. It might also lessen the cost of City Council elections as the voter pool narrows from 80,000 to “approximately 8,000,” says Galaway.

“From last review, we’ve gone from 30,000 to a mid-sized city of 87,000.” —DON LEONARD that perhaps it’s not a bad thing to have those truly invested and engaged in the issues helping run the city. Ross noted, “Higher pay is representative of the value of the council.” The current structure also discourages those from all economic backgrounds to run because they do not have the time or economic flexibility to participate. At Wednesday’s meeting, however, the citizen panel concluded that ultimately the wage issue bogged down the conversation, recommending the City take it out of the Charter as to not hinder progress. They noted that most other cities have a special committee that determines independently what the council pay should be. The Great Divide: East vs West The citizen panel also recommended dividing the city into geographical wards, ensuring that one representative of each ward would be elected to

Although councilors seemed largely in favor of a Charter review, Mayor Casey Roats instilled some hesitation in the ambitious timeline set forth by the panel — which wanted a Charter Review Committee set up immediately. That committee would include city councilors and citizens, and would possibly aim for referendum set for November 2017, with possible implementation of any changes by November 2018, when the new City Council would take over. City Attorney Mary Winters cautioned: “My experience is, don’t go into it naive, it will take longer than you think. A lot of people have really good opinions and you want the community involved.”  SW Comments about Charter Review can be directed to: council@bendoregon.gov.

STREET BEAT We asked citizens, What do you think about:

Paying council members higher wages? Dividing Bend into wards? Electing a mayor?

Nate Brocious

On Wages “I would be in favor of increasing (council member wages). I would like to know what – by increasing it – what that means. I think $500 a month sounds reasonable, but I think $1,000 a month would be the limit for me.”

Laurie

On Wards “I do know that if we can stay local and really connect with local voices – there are many diverse parts of Bend. So with each portion of Bend, each demographic, we should let the voices be heard — it’s a beneficial thing.”

On Electing a Mayor “I would prefer that there’s a direct vote.”

ver wonder why we’re the largest Oregon city without an elected mayor, or speculated on why there are only two council members representing the east side compared to the five from the west side? Thought about running for council but economic factors barred you from considering it, since it’s essentially a volunteer position? All of those elements are dictated by the City of Bend Charter. Its current incarnation was last reviewed 22 years ago—but that might all change if the City Council decides a Charter review is important enough to revisit this year. A citizen panel formed by Bend 2030, the Bend Chamber of Commerce and City Club of Central Oregon presented a Charter Review Report last Wednesday before the Bend City Council. The report was based on two forums held last year. Here’s a look at the findings and what could happen next.

“I support a woman’s right to choose. Revolver or semi-automatic. Come train with me.”

That’s the opening statement on the website run by Sharon Preston, a local woman who says she’s trained about 4,000 women in how to handle a firearm. About 75 percent of her focus is introducing them to the sport of shooting. The other 25 percent is focused on self-defense. Many women seek her training to qualify for a concealed carry permit. Preston’s company, “Ladies of Lead,” has been in operation in Redmond for five years and she sees no decline in interest among women to learn how to shoot and protect themselves. Preston says crime continues to rise in Deschutes County and Central Oregon—particularly the number of rape cases, drug-related crimes and even sex trafficking. Before opening her company, Preston spent 20 years caring for and training horses for law enforcement and search and rescue efforts. She also trained horses so riders could shoot from them. Her husband was frequently away working and her son was in the military. Worried that caring for the herd of about 25 horses was becoming too much for someone alone much of the time, her son urged her to seek other opportunities. She did. Preston began her company with a Facebook post, asking female friends if they would like to learn to shoot. She was overwhelmed with positive response, and Ladies of Lead was soon in business. “It was an amazing outpouring of women wanting education and comradery. We train mostly women, and a few good men,” she says. At first she relied on other instructors to help train her clients, but soon she began training them on her own. Her goal is to help establish a culture of education and training for the safe use of firearms—actions she strongly believes will help reduce crime and save lives.

Advocating for Gun Safety Bend physician Megan Ellingsen, a gun owner and Central Oregon’s lead for the national group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense, supports gun safety education programs such as

More than 4,200 people applied for a concealed gun permit in Deschutes County last year— many of them women. One local woman is on a mission to ensure they’re properly prepared. By Brian Jennings

applications – many from female applicants. Last year, Deschutes County residents filed 4,252 applications or renewals. There are 11,763 licensed concealed gun carriers in Deschutes County. The Sheriff ’s office offers a half-day Saturday qualifying class and permitting process. A license is mailed to the successful applicants within a week. Meanwhile, at Ladies of Lead women are instructed on how firearms work, their safe use, and how they must be respected for the safety of all who may encounter them, including children. Noting that it’s easy to obtain a concealed carry permit in Oregon, Preston says her course can take about a year for anyone to feel completely comfortable in using a handgun. She describes the sport of shooting as “perishable” and a skill that needs routine practice.

Women Seeking Training

Preston’s. “Any program that focuses on safety is very welcome,” says Ellingsen. “We’re not an anti-gun organization and we support the 2nd Amendment.” Key to the organization is a program called Be Smart for Kids, which stresses the safe use and storage of guns around kids. “We have no problem with lawful citizens owning guns, but there is a lack of education in our community,” Ellingsen says. Meanwhile, Deschutes County Sheriff ’s Sgt. Nathan Garibay says there’s no question that safety training helps save lives. “With the right to own and carry a gun comes the responsibility to do it safely while complying with the law,” he told me. Garibay says most accidents involving firearms could be avoided with proper training. Bend area resident Karl Findling is a longtime hunter and advocate for gun safety education. Noting that guns

are a reality, he says educational safety training is critical to reducing risk and saving lives. The father of two young daughters, Findling says it’s important to empower girls who are interested in shooting at a young age. “I’m going through hunter safety class with one of my daughters soon and teaching them the proper use of firearms is important to their safety,” he says.

A Countywide Increase in Concealed Licenses Preston says owning a handgun and having a concealed carry permit is a “huge burden,” but one that saves lives. “For the women I train who have been the victims of violent crime, the brutality of violence is no longer academic for them. It’s real.” The Deschutes County Sheriff ’s Office acknowledges a steady increase in concealed handgun license

Why are more women seeking firearms training? “Unfortunately, it’s crime and its fear-based. I hate to see that. I try to calm their fears,” says Preston. Many of the women in her program are older, Preston says. Some are widowed and alone for the first time in their lives. “We try to give them a plan and build their confidence so they can live their lives large again.” Students learn how to be aware of potential danger and, importantly, how to avoid it. For instance, Preston cautions women against using parking lots with several kids in tow, which creates vulnerable situations. “Just changing their MO and raising their awareness levels when out in public, improves personal safety,” she says. Preston has also turned away people who are seeking training for various reasons. “There’s a huge responsibility to the public when you carry a gun outside of your home,” says Preston. She continued, “You can’t get involved in social or anti-social violence. You’ve got to avoid those situations.”

Handling Tough Situations Preston calls dangerous encounters “critical dynamic incidents” when someone is threatening or inflicting harm on others. How one reacts to a threat of bodily harm is not an easy decision, but split-second action can save the lives of the innocent. Her virtual laser training system takes clients through different scenarios where they must determine whether or when to shoot the assailant. Showing your firearm is not illegal in certain


story of an encounter with a woman in downtown Bend who approached her and said, “Live by the gun, die by the gun. Guns only bring evil unto themselves.” Preston responded, asking the woman, “What did the Sandy Hook school shooting bring unto itself?” Preston said the woman had no response and contends gun-free zones such as schools are soft targets for crime. “Another thing I tell critics is to talk to a woman who has been brutalized. Tell that to my friend who was raped 15 feet from the guard shack over at a college in the Valley where the guard should have been but was on a smoke break. Say that to her,” says Preston. SW

In-Home Encounters For in-home burglaries, Preston offers this advice. “You are not obligated to say you have a gun or to show it if someone is threatening to harm you in your home,” she says. “You don’t have to, but I recommend you have 911 on the phone. They hear everything. All of this is on tape with 911 and that will bode well for you,” she advises. Preston acknowledges that many people have an inherent fear of guns. Knives, she says, kill more people than guns by far. She contends a firearm is only a tool and with a culture of education about them and their proper use, people will become less afraid. In answer to gun critics, she tells a

A woman is more likely to be killed when a gun is used in an instance of domestic abuse. 3 A case-control study of 11 cities found that in a domestic violence situation, the perpetrator’s access to a gun increased the odds of femicide by more than five times (adjust OR=5.44, 95% CI = 2.89, 10.22). 3

situations in Oregon, according to Preston. She says it’s legal for a person fearing violence against them to show their firearm to the would-be perpetrator without pointing it at them in order to defuse a critical encounter. However, pointing the firearm at the person can be considered menacing, she says. “You have to be in reasonable fear of bodily harm happening to you. Ask yourself, am I in immediate jeopardy?” She says such factors as body size, frailty and age all come into play in the quick decision-making process of self-defense. Disparity of force, she says, is a critical determining factor. Preston says the best fight anyone can have is the one you never get into. “If you can get out of it, do it. Using a firearm—pressing the trigger on that gun—is your last resort. That is the absolute last thing you want to do.”

GUNG HO FOR SHOWS

But Left Over S SOUND Anything These days, there’s a freshness to the jammy, jazzy

By Magdalena Bokowa

bluegrass of Leftover Salmon By Chris Young

DW Burnett

Leftover Salmon’s members are “looking forward to another adventure” in Central Oregon, says co-founder Vince Herman, as it’s reminiscent of their Colorado turf. “Bend has a great feel—kind of like Boulder West—and we feel really at home there.”

L

eftover Salmon has spent the last 27-some years amalgamating. On New Year’s Eve 1989, Vince Herman’s the Salmon Heads haphazardly joined forces with Drew Emmitt’s The Left Hand String Band, a momentous event that merged Herman’s old-timey, Cajun-and zydeco-inspired jug band with the progressive bluegrass stylings of Emmitt. Although unplanned, the pair immediately felt an energy that, alongside banjo player Mark Vann, carried them

of dusty antiquity in the rock and roll museum. This exhibit is just as lively as ever. Over the years, the founding members have continued to breathe new life into the band, aided by infusions of fresh talent. There was a particular void to fill in 2002 following the passing of original member Vann, who lost his battle with cancer, and in the subsequent years, there’s been a jazz inflection to the group’s always-improvisational nature—particularly in the live arena.

“It certainly is a unique time to be writing politically.” —VINCE HERMAN throughout the ensuing decades. “Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass” is the term the band ultimately used to dub their musical proclivities, and it’s an appropriate appellation for the group’s melding of disparate musical forces and minds over the years—something the six-piece continues to do. Fearlessly mashing genres—from bluegrass and folk, to Cajun and calypso, to jam band rock and soulful blues—it’s hard to overstate Leftover Salmon’s influence on the American musical tradition, especially that of the modern jamgrass scene. Rule-breaking bands such as Yonder Mountain String Band, Greensky Bluegrass and many more have all drawn inspiration from the pioneering efforts of these slamgrass forefathers. Don’t let all this lull you into thinking that Leftover Salmon is some kind

“Improv has always played a role in bluegrass soloing, so in that sense there is some overlapping of the two styles,” Herman explains. “Bluegrass is an attitude and so is jazz, as I see it. You can jazz-up any song and also bluegrass-it-up. I draw no borders.” It seems neither do the later additions of bassist Dr. Greg Garrison (referred to with the honorific thanks to his doctor of musical arts degree in jazz studies), banjoist Andy Thorn (who holds a degree in jazz guitar from the University of North Carolina), drummer Alwyn Robinson (who honed his jazz and jam skills at Texas Tech), and pianist Erik Deutsch (who christened his 2015 solo album, "Outlaw Jazz"). Mix it all up and it’s a sonically succulent recipe for a synchronous live show. “We’ve been having lots of fun in

the band as it is now,” says Herman of the current lineup. “There’s a great new energy and a sense of wanting to explore all kind of styles and feels. After 27 years of doing this, feeling this fresh and excited is a real delight for us.” The coming days present opportunities for Leftover Salmon. From a new album (“We’ve been writing together for this next record that we will be recording in May, and the process is really a great joy,” Herman relates. “Lots of ideas flying around with us these days.”) to the live stage, “It certainly is a unique time to be writing politically,” Herman says. “I think the music really could have more relevance to the culture as a whole as we look at getting safely through this new president. We hope to capture what it feels like in 2017.” So as we move further into the new year, it’s now time to gather together in the communal setting that live music provides and experience all the energy and feels Leftover Salmon can supply.  SW

A Winter of Great Music WinterFest’s lineup offers a little something for everyone By Nicole Vulcan

Samoan reggae and R&B artist J Boog will warm up the Winterfest stage at 8:30pm, 2/18.

A

quick glance at the events calendar for any given weekend typically reveals one thing: We have a lot of options for music on the regular in Central Oregon. At the upcoming Oregon WinterFest, however, you won’t have to venture from one side of the city to the other to see lots of great acts in one place. Here’s a quick look at what’s ahead at WinterFest so you can plan next weekend well in advance. • Head out to the Volcanic Theatre Pub Thurs., Feb. 16 for the WinterFest pre-party featuring Tony Smiley, aka the LoopNinja, who loops his way through genres including rock, hip-hop, reggae, 80s, tribal fusion and lots more. Show at 9 pm. • Check out the U.S. Cellular Chalet Tent Fri., Feb. 17 for three shows: Bend-based Second Son, a country-folk outfit influenced by Gram Parsons, Townes Van Zandt and even Otis Redding, starting at 5:30. At 6:30, be there for the high energy dance-rock band from Bend, Precious Byrd. And then, 90s-era fan-people, pop onto the dance floor for the swingin’ hits from the zoot suit-wearing Cherry Poppin’ Daddies at 8:30 pm. • On Sat., Feb 18, be back to the U.S. Cellular tent at 5:30 for Jemere Morgan, son of Roy “Gramps” Morgan and grandson of Denroy Morgan. With chops like that, you’ll be in the company of reggae royalty. And speaking of reggae royalty, up at 7 pm that night is Jo Mersa Marley, eldest son of Stephen Marley and grandson of Bob Marley. Finishing up the evening is J Boog at 8:30 pm, the Grammy-nominated, Hawaii-based Samoan reggae and R&B artist who hasn’t really slowed down since the release of his debut album in 2007.

The Housing Game: Can We Make it Affordable? Put on your planning hats and


If you’re already in a relationship, read on to find out how staying healthy together can mean a healthier relationship. And if you’re not already coupled up, peruse the following pages for a look at the apps singles (and even non-singles!) are using to find love, hookups and more. Yes, there’s an app for that. Lots of apps for that. Whatever the state of the world (and the weather), all you need is love, Central Oregon!

Couples Who Sweat Together THE KEY TO LONG-TERM LOVE By Annette Benedetti

B

efore you met “the one” and coupled up, there’s a good chance you spent your days munching on greens and hitting the gym so you would look your best when you bumped into your true love. Now that your nights have gone from hitting the clubs to cuddling on the couch, maybe you’ve both noticed that your pants are getting tighter and climbing the stairs to bed is harder (and perhaps a little less passionate). Being in love doesn’t mean your health has to go by the wayside; in fact, personal trainer, CrossFit coach and acupuncturist Almine Barton says working out with your significant other improves your relationship as well as your health. If the quickly approaching swimsuit season isn’t enough to motivate you and your mate, consider the following benefits exercising as a team has to offer your relationship. Then get up off the couch and get started.

Trust Building Trust is key to any successful relationship. Most partner workouts and physical activities require some level of faith in each other. At bare minimum you have to trust your partner to show up, support you and hold you accountable each day, but some activi-

ties not only demand more confidence, they help build it. Barton says, “Some good examples of physical activities that require and build trust include rock climbing—where you literally have each other’s lives in one another’s hands—and lifting heavy weights together. If you are spotting heavy weights for one another, there’s a lot of trust required when that heavy bar is hovering above your head.”

Improved Communication Embarking on a new fitness adventure as a couple requires solid communication skills. Agreeing on activities, planning workouts and deciding on meals together means talking through different wants and needs, coming to agreements and figuring out how to best schedule your time. This might be difficult at first, but the process will help you find new communication tools, like a shared online calendar, and build better communication skills. Beyond dealing with the daily details, trying out physical activities such as dancing, rock climbing and partner yoga can help you learn a lot about your significant other. All of these activities and many others require both verbal and physical communication, which can bring you even closer to your loved one.

Shared Goals

It’s likely that part of what brought you and your partner together was discov-

ering you had shared interests. Creating shared goals is an extension of that element of your relationship. Barton says, “Shared goals are important for couples. Keeping one another healthy, accountable and on track shows commitment to each other’s well-being.” Setting and reaching the goals you have agreed on as a couple is both a satisfying and bonding experience, especially when your accomplishments lead to looking and feeling better. Consider committing to training for a 5K or a half marathon together. There are a plethora of running, biking and obstacle races that you can set your sights on and support each other through. Once you’ve earned your medal, you can celebrate with a romantic night out together.

Better Sex

If there’s one benefit that should catch your attention, it’s this one. Solid communication and trust are two elements that are guaranteed to improve your sex life, but implementing a regular fitness routine offers your relationship something that can be even more impactful in the bedroom: improved self-esteem. Barton says, “Couples who work out together are happier with how their bodies look, have higher self-esteem and confidence and enjoy showing off their gains in the bedroom.” Good sex can also lead to a long-term libido boost for both of you, and will help make your relationship extra enjoyable for the long run.

Looking for Love? THESE DAYS, APPS ARE FAR A FAR-FROM-TABOO WAY TO SEARCH FOR YOUR NEW BOO By Annette Benedetti

P

assing notes in high school may have helped you score your first kiss or your first true love, but the dating world has become a bit more difficult to navigate in the years since “Beverly Hills 90210” or even “Gilmore Girls” taught us the ins and outs of l-u-v. If you’re looking to find love or companionship in 2017, you’ve probably at least considered online dating. Whether you’re in college, just out of a relationship or looking to find a partner to enjoy your retirement, the virtual world has a slew of dating websites and apps waiting to hook you up. Which site is best for you and what’s it like to use them? The Source Weekly put together the basics and gathered first-hand experiences that will help you decide which one (or two or three) to sign up for. (Note: names have been changed at the request of the individuals who participated.)

Tinder

If you’ve done any research into the virtual dating world, you’ve heard about Tinder. It’s one of the most popular free apps and uses Facebook to help you cre-

“I’ve met some real losers, like this one guy who took a call from another woman he was going out on dates with in the middle of our first date. At the end, he asked me if I’d go out with him again. I said no.” — Sarah ate your profile in minutes. This location-based app initially claimed to be the key to finding true love when it was launched in 2012, but has since earned a reputation for being best for hookups because of its short profiles that rely heavily on photos. Heard the term “swipe left” recently? That refers to Tinder’s swipe-style mode of accepting or rejecting matches based mostly on appearance. Tinder also offers a paid membership that provides fun but unnecessary extras ranging from $9.99 to $19.99. While the media enjoys grinding out article after article about how it’s leading to the downfall of the dating world, the public seems to disagree as more and more people join this new approach to dating.

A Tinder Experience Sarah has been on Tinder for a year and has gone on several dates. She says, “I think it’s fun! I’ve met some real losers, like this one guy who took a call from another woman he was going out on dates with in the middle of our first date. At the end, he asked me if I’d go out with him again. I said no.” Sarah didn’t let one bad date get her down though. “I like meeting new people without expectation and Tinder makes it easy. Some dates are good, some are bad and some have led to friendship. I’m not sure I’m ready to find ‘the one’ yet anyway.”

Match.com

If there is such a thing as an “old reliable” dating app, Match.com is it. Launched in 1995, its creators tout the website and app as pioneering the online dating industry. Match has an enormous and diverse worldwide user base and an extremely high success rate. Expect to fill out an extensive profile when you sign up, taking approximately a half hour to complete. Match uses algorithms to help you find your true love and sends you matches on a regular basis. While Match.com offers all of the tools one needs to find success on a dating site, including chat, e-mail and a Tinderlike Discover option, you have to pay for a full membership in order to enjoy many of them. The subscription price, which ranges from a $41.99 monthly fee to a $20.99 per month yearlong subscription; maybe a bit hefty with other free options available.

A Match Experience

Jon met his true love on Match after a short stint of failed experiences. He says, “I had my profile up for about a year before meeting Jane. Several of my previous dates had been a bit awkward when I realized upon meeting that the images people had used for their profiles were super old. I didn’t even recognize a couple of my dates.” When Jon met Jane, he knew it was love. “Jane was exactly who I had expected, except even better. I knew I was in love

when I looked across the table at dinner and caught her intensely studying the menu. Then I noticed that the menu was upside down. I was pretty sure food wasn’t what was on her mind.” Jon and Jane have been together for three years.

OkCupid

OkCupid welcomes people of all genders and relationship styles. It has one of the most expansive gender and sexual orientation profile options for users to choose from. In December of 2016 the site even began catering to non-monogamous arrangements and the polyamorous community by allowing couples to link their profiles and list themselves at “seeing someone,” or “married,” and then search for additional partners. Users fill out an extensive profile and answer a series of questions that allow the site’s algorithms to match them. All of the communication tools, including email and chat and an app for your phone are free, however, you can purchase different membership levels that come with added features by paying anything from $9.95 to $34.90 per month.

An OkCupid Experience

Amy was one of Mary’s first dates. She says, “We met on OkCupid and chatted for about a week before meeting for coffee. The site made finding a match in a city with a relatively small queer community much easier and the first time I saw her I was hooked!” Amy and Mary have been dating for six months.

Combating Violence Against Women with Art “The Vagina Monologues” comes back to Bend, times two By Annette Benedetti

I

n 1994, playwright Eve Ensler broke new ground with the play, “The Vagina Monologues.” What started out as a piece of art aimed at addressing women’s sexuality and the social stigma surrounding rape and abuse spawned the non-profit organization V-Day—an activist movement that works to end violence against women and girls by raising funds and awareness through benefit productions of “The Vagina Monologues” and other works. V-Day has reached billions of people around the world, and this month, two V-Day campaigns are bringing unique productions of “The Vagina Monologues” to two different venues in Bend.

Barefoot Bliss Yoga

On Feb. 17 and 18, another production of the “The Vagina Monologues” will take place at Sol Alchemy Temple. After discovering that the performance hadn’t happened in Bend since 2007, Sol Alchemy’s owner Breyn Hibbs got together a group of 14 women to jointly direct and produce the show. The cast includes Jenni Peskin, a local social justice advocate who directed and produced “The Vagina Monologues” the last time it was in Bend. The group has taken a traditional approach to its production. “Instead of it being a dramatization of women’s voices…it is a reading of women’s voices because the monologues are, of course, based on real interviews with real women,” says Hibbs. When asked about her inspiration, Hibbs says, “I’d sum it up in two sentences: the feminine is rising and the time is now.” Proceeds will go to Shakti Rising Oregon and World Muse, two local organizations doing work on behalf of women and girls. The final 10 percent of both productions will go back to the National V-Day Movement. SW

Barefoot Bliss Yoga

On Feb. 11 and 12, Ensler’s play will open at 2nd Street Theater. While “The Vagina Monologues” is traditionally done as a reading, some creative license is given and director Julee Vadnais promises audiences will enjoy the unique approach her production has taken. She says, “We have added a lot of lighting and staging elements that are not usually done in this show, to help move it along and set moods and feelings. There’s also a great dance piece, some music and an aerial piece.” Vadnais says she decided to add the aerial piece because it requires strength and is considered an empowering art form—two elements that have been key to the success of “The Vagina Monologues.” Vadnais’ cast consists of 19 women between the ages of 18 and 80 years, and includes two transgender performers who will read a new monologue that exposes the hardships and violence that trans women face. Ninety percent of the proceeds from Vandnais’ production will go to Saving Grace, the local women’s organization that provides comprehensive family violence and sexual assault services.

Heather Anderson

Oregon’s Teacher of the Year in 2016 By Brian Jennings journey, she also found time to start a family. She has two boys, one in 3rd grade and another in kindergarten. Anderson has these words of wisdom for students: “My advice is to work hard. Students that give it their best effort are the ones that are successful. Whether it’s hard or easy for you, if you give your best effort, you’ll accomplish it and be successful. We try to ingrain that in students early on and celebrate the process throughout,” she says. She acknowledges there are parts of school that kids will enjoy and parts they will always dislike, but says a positive attitude will help guide their success. As for her words of advice for parents, Anderson says: “Encourage your kids to read at home. It’s the most essential thing. If kids learn to love to read when they are little then that’s probably the best gift we can give them.” Special teachers also have special teachers in their lives. For Anderson, her support group included her mother and grandmother, both teachers. Proudly holding a picture of a oneroom school house in which her grandmother taught beginning at age 16, Anderson says the picture is a reminder of the encouragement her family gave her and the inspiration that drives her today. Reflecting on her formative years, Anderson says two teachers stand out.

—HEATHER ANDERSON

Catherine Cummings was a teacher at High Desert Middle School before recently retiring. “When she was my teacher, she was always hands-on and engaging. She gave us great projects to work through. We would dress up as characters to bring history alive,” said Anderson. She would later seek Cummings’ advice as she began teaching in Bend. Another special teacher in Anderson’s life was her high school Spanish teacher. “I never knew I had an interest in Spanish but started taking it at Bend High. Her name was Bonnie Elliott,” Anderson says. Perhaps not so coincidentally, Elliott was Bend’s last Oregon Teacher of the Year, in 1992. “She was a great inspiration to me, encouraging me to teach in Mexico during my college years. She was someone you knew you wanted to be like—motivational but strict and you learned a lot,” says Anderson. Acknowledging that the role of education and teaching is changing, Anderson says technology and social media will continue to be important teaching aids in the future, providing

opportunities for “blended learning.” Social media can be isolating, though, and Anderson says nothing can replace classroom interaction with teachers and classmates as aids in learning. “Teaching is hard work. We get pulled in a lot of different directions. I believe we should empower our teachers and help them to become highly accomplished,” she states. To that end, Anderson coaches teachers, including guidance for national certification. She’s currently mentoring a group of 16 teachers within the district. The torch of Teacher of the Year for 2017 was recently passed to Gloria Pereyra-Robertson of Medford’s Howard Elementary. With that, Anderson reflected on her busy year. “It’s been a lot of work serving as a role model while continuing my teaching duties and speaking out on behalf of education throughout the state and nation. But, it has been very rewarding,” she says. Anderson was also honored with the 2017 National Education Association’s “Teaching Excellence” award, given to 40 recipients annually, and was selected as Grand Marshall of the 2016 Bend Christmas parade.  SW

By Howard Leff It worked. While most writers seek out illustrators, and artists need a good story, Ogawa can seamlessly churn out both stories and pictures. The snowy owls on this week’s cover grew out of a whim. While working on an unrelated project one day, Ogawa thought “I just want to do something cute that I can do in a single afternoon – and that was my first owl – and I can put it in a fun hat. I just wanted to create something that was pretty.” Thus began the owl-painting phase of her career. That she’s even in Bend at all is

also something of a happy accident. A friend invited Ogawa up from her California home to visit in 2013. You can guess the rest. “I liked the fact that it was so centralized. I wanted to have access to nature and wilderness because I derive a lot of inspiration and mental health from being able to get out into it.” She made the move last September. Now then, please enjoy that cute couple on the cover. It’s “Owlentine’s” Week, after all.  SW Marian Goldeen

Goldeen Ogawa can literally do it all. Visually too. If you need specifics, call her a fantasy writer/illustrator/ painter/ cartoonist. Not bad for someone who left kindergarten after six months and didn’t fully learn to read until age 12. Instead, her parents opted to teach Ogawa and her little brother at home. “I’m off the deep end of non-traditional [education],” she says. “I learned things at a very uneven pace, but we were also getting out in the world and doing stuff.”

A

n ordinary fall day in 2015 turned into an extraordinary day for Bend teacher Heather Anderson. She walked into Juniper Elementary School, where she teaches special reading and math skills, and was notified of an unexpected assembly of students, staff and administrators. At that surprise meeting, the school community informed her she was named “Oregon’s Teacher of the Year for 2016” – the first Bend teacher to win the honor since 1992. The State’s Department of Education has been naming a teacher of the year since 1955. Anderson is in her fifth year of teaching at Juniper Elementary at the foot of Pilot Butte. As a Bend native, bringing home the prestigious award was special to her. As a child she attended Bear Creek Elementary and Pilot Butte Middle School. She graduated from Bend High School in 1996 before enrolling at Oregon State University. After graduating from OSU, she earned her master’s degree from George Fox University in Newberg and added another master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University. Anderson is now seeking her doctorate degree. In addition to teaching special reading and math skills, she’s also focused her studies on teacher leadership skills, mentoring many colleagues. Anderson began her teaching career in Maryland and spent six years there while her husband was finishing studies at Georgetown University. Then they returned home where Anderson taught for four years at Three Rivers Elementary in Sunriver. Along her

Chocolate is for lovers Not that you needed an excuse to eat chocolate, but since Valentine’s Day is upon us, the chocolate-loving team at the Source—who can sniff out a bar of chocolate, milk or dark, in the dark, from five miles away—is here with your all-things-chocolate Little Bites. Here’s what’s ahead in the world of chocolate this Valentine’s Day. A Whole Month of Chocolate. Yes, you read that right. February means the Month of Chocolate at Sunriver Resort. Start with the 5K Run for Chocolate on the morning of Feb.11, and then head over to the Chocolate Showcase, featuring samples from chocolate vendors, demonstrations from the Sunriver Resort culinary team, including how to make French Hot Chocolate and Crown Vanilla Hot Toddies. Then there’s the chocolate spa specials at Sage Springs Club & Spa. Choco-massage, perhaps?

Pegasus Chocolate Becomes Oregon Craft Chocolatiers If there’s anything Central Oregonians love more than chocolate, it’s local chocolate. Over the years, Pegasus Gourmet Chocolate has been a mainstay in local chocolate love, and that tradition is now continuing under another name. According to our friends at the Cascades Wedding Show, Ronald Smith recently bought the business and has changed its name to Oregon Craft Chocolatiers. It’s still in the same location in the Wagner Mall in Bend. Oregon Craft Chocolatiers 1900 NE 3rd St., Bend 541-330-2104 Mon-Fri 10am-6pm; Sat-Sun 10am-4pm

ast week we took a brief look at ways to celebrate the day without breaking the bank. That’s one way to go about things. While expressing love isn’t necessarily about celebrating materialism or who can buy the biggest and brightest thing, sometimes it’s also nice to mark the day as special by getting a little extravagant. In the spirit of splurging, this week we’re taking a look at one shining option for a higher-end Valentine’s Day. Since I do my personal best to avoid doing things on the same day or at the same time as everyone else, I decided to celebrate V-Day a bit early by making a reservation at Ariana, rated one of the top 100 restaurants in North America by diners on Open Table. The restaurant sells out Valentine’s Day by early January every year (get on their mailing list to take advantage of that little chestnut), so I decided to be a nut and celebrate the occasion the first week of February. Since I’m single and not quite ready to mingle, I decided to invite my ex-girlfriend. Great idea, right? There’s something so instantly inviting about Ariana. It’s fine dining, to be sure, but there’s a relaxed sense of welcoming among the staff, and the vibe of the space never threatens with anything stuffy or restricting. We started with an amuse-bouche of cheese sprinkled with almonds and a drizzle of honey. It was the perfect palate cleanser and stoked the fire of hunger. The Moscow Mule I started with balanced the vodka, lime and ginger beer so flawlessly that I had it finished before the starters arrived...or maybe I just drink too much. The Sicilian style calamari came in a thick, fresh tomato sauce covered in capers, chile, currants and fregola. The harissa prawns were marinated in a rose harissa and came in a Marcona almond sauce. The combination of these dishes was perfect, as the spiciness of the thick, succulent prawns was balanced by the rich tomato sauce and the tartness of the squid. I figured I should pair my main dish, filet mignon, with a Jameson and pickle brine because I heard that was a thing. The J-Mo/pickle concoction (called a Bushwick from its Brooklyn origins) was surprisingly delicious as the woody and nutty tones of the Jameson met the pickle brine head

The maitake mushrooms melted in my mouth like hot, earthy butter and the filet made me want to call my mom and thank her for birthing me. My dining companion had the wild cod and clams, equally delectable. The creamed leeks added a texture to the dish that made it mouthwatering to the last bite. Dessert was the crème brûlée Ariana

infused with bourbon vanilla beans, a caramelized sugar crust and fresh berries. My delightful ex-lady friend got the chocolate soufflé cake with Valrhona dark chocolate, salted caramel ice cream and peanut-sesame crackerjack. Every bite of each dish was better than the last. As I looked across the table at my ex-girlfriend, instead of feeling sadness or loss I felt grateful to be enjoying such a flawless meal with a good friend. Ariana deserves every bit of praise it receives and even though the bill was well over $100, it didn’t feel extravagant. Sometimes we all need to treat ourselves. After all, we deserve it. SW

Stalking the Florida Weisse 100% Vegan Friendly

By Kevin Gifford

Catering Available!

541.382.2929 * 1326 NE 3rd St. Bend PhoVietAndCafe.com

Many Florida breweries, such as Cocoa Beach Brewing Company, pictured here, have helped create a new genre of craft beer called Florida weisse. These lower ABV beers are laden with tropical fruits, offering refreshment under the sweltering Florida sun.

G

iven their “rich uncle” in Belgium, it’s perhaps no surprise that 10 Barrel’s beer can now be obtained in parts of the U.S. that are quite a distance away from Galveston Avenue. Fans can find brands like Joe and Apocalypse in bars in such far-off and exotic places as Minneapolis, New York, Pittsburgh...and even at the Hoptinger beer-and-sausage joint in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, a mere 2,960 miles away from Bend. This means that, thanks to the powers of InBev, 10 Barrel has beat Deschutes Brewery to much of the East, despite the difference in production size—a boon to IPA fans out there, although it has to taste a lot fresher at the source. Still, it’d be a wasted opportunity to travel to Florida on vacation and drink beer from the other coast. “When I moved here six years ago,” says Gregg Wiggins, “beer ambassador” at Cocoa Beach Brewing Company, “there were maybe 30 breweries across the whole state. Now that number’s up to over 200, and it’s still very much in a growth phase—it’s anyone’s guess what it could max out at.” Wiggins tends bar at the Cocoa Beach, a nanobrewery located in former Navy housing along the beach south of Cape Canaveral. A former journalist, he now helps run the place with head brewer Chris McCall, who

founded it in 2009. “We got a lot of Martians in here,” he said, using the nickname for the local NASA staffers who launched the Curiosity rover to Mars in 2011, “And I can’t confirm or deny it, but there may be a Cocoa Beach bumper sticker inside one of the internal compartments.” What makes beer in the Sunshine State special? For one, the state kinda sorta invented a whole new genre of beer. “There are what we call Florida weisses here,” Wiggins notes, “basically Berliner-weisse beer with tropical fruit added to it. It really started to take off when Cigar City [in Tampa] released one with guava—three percent ABV and incredibly refreshing.” Nowadays places like Aardwolf (Jacksonville), Funky Buddha (outside Fort Lauderdale), and J. Wakefield Brewing (Miami) produce a wide variety of weisse with guava, papaya, Key lime, orange and near anything else that grows on trees. And while the state has its “whales”—such as Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout from Cigar City, which people line up for at the brewery every March—it’s this lighter genre that a touring beer fan will want to focus on, taking in some tropical refreshment under the equally tropical sun.  SW

One Ring to Fool Them All Another horror franchise fails to care By Jared Rasic

kills you seven days later, UNLESS you make a copy of the tape and show it to someone else. If that happens then you don’t die and everyone (except the person you handed a death sentence to) has a happy ending. “Rings” tries to expand the rules of “The Ring” and, in doing so, muddies them to death. For one, Samara kills people who haven’t even watched the video. Instead of making the VHS tape go viral so hundreds of people have the chance to watch it, victims still just try and show one person at a time JUST MINUTES before their seven days are up. I was really hoping this movie would be slow and uninteresting so I could call it “Bored of the Rings,” but after seeing it, that would be lying. There are stylish moments throughout and the central mystery based on the origin of Samara is pretty fun, but there isn’t a single scare to be found.

I was really hoping this movie would be slow and uninteresting so I could call it "Bored of the Rings..." “The Ring” was a perfect example of establishing and then following a specific story’s cinematic horror rules. There is a videotape with two minutes of spooky imagery on it. If you watch it, a creepy dead girl named Samara

Samara kills everyone the very same way (eyes open/wide mouth dead), so there’s no tension to be found from our franchise’s central villain. I could still overlook all these things if the villain was strong enough,

Scary haired girl is coming to get you.

but that’s why the “Ring” franchise will probably never make it past this installment. We learned in the first film that Samara had a terrible life and was thrown down a well by her adoptive mother, where she stayed alive for seven days. Part of each film has been about rescuing Samara from her horrible un-death and helping her spirit find peace, but she still kills tons of innocent people without any sort of remorse. As an audience, are we supposed to root for her to follow the light or be horribly destroyed by the heroes? Everything about “Rings” is muddled and confusing. It’s a fast-paced

and entertaining watch if your brain is shut down, but that’s damning with faint praise. It just depends on how much we expect from our horror movies. I guess the one thing we should expect is to be at least a little scared once or twice. If that’s the case, maybe the entire franchise needs to follow the light and, at last, mercifully rest. SW

The Fault in Our Mars Love and Rockets By Jared Rasic

s a human male grown to maturity, I am not the target demographic for “The Space Between Us.” Judging from the trailers, I would have thought the demo would be teenagers, spinsters or possibly cats left at home with the television on. Instead, I now believe the film is for no one. It should be floating through the ether like a skinny little Martian boy, desperate for love, finding Earth to be only hostile and colder than the infinite vacuum of space. “The Space Between Us” is a film in the same way a greeting card is a novel or a bicycle is an airplane. There is nothing coherent here to make a movie with, other than a couple fairly nice performances by Gary Oldman (who is on a bit of a streak of terrible movies), Carla Gugino and Britt Robertson. Really, the three of them are just standing in a dumpster as it burns, hoping we ignore the flames and stare at their jazz hands. Asa Butterfield (“Enders Game” & “Hugo”) plays Gardner Elliot, a

16-year-old boy born on Mars to an astronaut who flew there while pregnant. She dies in childbirth and the company that sent her there lies about Gardner’s existence, so he’s stuck on Mars because his organs and bones would kill him on Earth. He is raised by a robot companion and a nice astronaut played by Gugino. Gardner falls in love with a girl from Earth named Tulsa (Robertson) and is finally allowed to go there after some scientists put metal rods in his gangly, sickly bones. He teams up with Tulsa to be stupid and pointless while searching for the father he never knew. Butterfield is terrible in this. Like, career-killing flat and boring non-entity bad—but he’s not done any favors from a script that has him constantly act like a sullen teenager. Are you telling me that even if someone is raised on an entirely different planet than Earth, they’re still going to be a dick when they’re 16? Even without access to the Internet? Huh. Once he gets to Earth, Gardner’s heart grows too

“I learned it from you, robot dad!”

large for him to survive (Get it? Ugh.). Instead of waiting for medical treatment, he runs away to search for Tulsa and his dad. All it would have taken was one moment in the film where he listens to the people trying to help him and the movie could have been a satisfying 15 minutes long. Instead, he runs and I spent two hours rooting for his heart to explode. All I wanted was to walk out of “The Space Between Us”

and find something better to do, such as pondering the vastness of the universe or questioning my life choices. Instead, just like poor, weak Gardner, my heart was just too big to walk away and I almost died. SW

uspension of disbelief in the horror genre is a tricky thing. Horror movies are mostly about rules. Michael Myers is an unstoppable killing machine, but we don’t know why...he just keeps getting up. Freddy Krueger kills in dreams, but can’t do much damage in the real world. Jason Voorhees can take a lot of damage, but does poorly in water and around mommies. In all these examples, the rules don’t even need to make sense outside of the reality of the film’s universe. However, once the rules are introduced, the horror flick needs to follow them or else everything feels like a cheat. I can believe a child murderer can enter teenagers’ dreams and cause them to die in an escalating series of violent and imaginative ways, but if he comes into the real world and starts killing people with his razor hands, I’m completely pulled out of the story.

A DOG'S PURPOSE: While the film looks like the perfect drug for people looking to look at cute dogs for a couple of hours, videos of a dog trembling in fear on the set might turn off animal lovers. Also, since this is about a dog getting reincarnated a few times, it might be painful to watch him die over and over, “Marley and Me-”style.

businessman who teams up with a geologist to hunt for gold in the remote jungles of Indonesia. The trailer looks great but advanced word says that the film is uneven and slight. From the director of “Syriana” and writer of “Traffic,” it's hard to imagine the film being that bad. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX | Sisters Movie House.

HIDDEN FIGURES: Taraji P. Henson stars as Katherine Johnson, one of the key mathematical minds that helped put John Glenn into orbit during the Space Race. Watching Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae take on a sexist and racist NASA while doing twice the work as everyone else is inspiring, but also infuriating. Old Mill Stadium 16 LA LA LAND: Director Damien Chazelle (“Whiplash”) takes his incredible eye and style and puts it into making a throwback to Hollywood musicals of the 1940s-50s. Ryan Gosling plays a focused jazz musician who falls in love with Emma Stone, a struggling actress. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX | Redmond Cinema MANCHESTER BY THE SEA: For those looking for adult entertainment, “Manchester by the Sea” is an emotional powerhouse. Casey Affleck gives the performance of his career as Lee Chandler, a broken man whose brother dies and leaves him as the guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX MONSTER TRUCKS: Yes, this looks like a

ridiculously goofy kids movie, but something about the idea of a giant, weird-looking monster living inside of a truck is pretty appealing. It has a surprisingly deep bench of great actors including Amy Ryan, Thomas Lennon and Barry Pepper, so maybe there's something more to it than juvenile burp jokes. Old Mill Stadium 16

PASSENGERS: Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt star as two attractive handsomes in sleep stasis aboard a ship headed across the galaxy, taking a chunk of the human race to a new home planet. The problem: They're both awake about 100 years too early and can't go back to sleep. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX PATRIOT'S DAY: Director Peter Berg and actor Mark Wahlberg team up for the third time (after “Lone Survivor” and the underrated “Deepwater Horizon”) to tell the story of the first responders and detectives that helped with the Boston marathon bombing. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX RINGS: After the absolute nadir of horror that was “The Ring 2,” it's hard to imagine “Rings” possibly being any worse, but there's always a chance. Continuing the story of an evil girl that kills you a week after you watch a spooky VHS tape, it could be an interesting update to see how it works in the age of social media and Youtube. See full review on pg 35. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX.

RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER:

As a movie, this supposedly-final foray into the land of Milla Jovovich killing zombies is borderline incomprehensible. It's fun and has some great moments, but this is just a series of cool images more than an actual movie. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

ROGUE ONE: Not sure if you guys have heard of this one. It's a little indie space opera about a rag tag group of rebel insurgents who take on a dark and twisted empire hellbent on ruling the galaxy. The final 30 minutes are some of the most emotionally powerful and intense sequences in Star Wars history. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX SAVING BANKSY: A fascinating look at street

art and the value we place on it because of a name. When art dealers start taking down Banksy's stencil art and selling it for six figures, a group of art collectors attempts to keep his work where it was meant to be seen: on the streets. Tin Pan Theater

SING: The story follows a bunch of anthropomorphic animals as they enter a singing competition, the film covers its bases for folks waiting for the next season of “The Voice” to start. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

SPLIT: A newfound brevity has entered the work

of M. Night Shyamalan and “Split” is the result. This is a tense, pulse-pounding thriller starring James McAvoy giving one of the finest performances of the year as a man with 23 personalities in his head, all fighting for control. This one is absolutely bonkers. Old Mill Stadium 16 & Redmond Cinema

THE COMEDIAN: While it's nice to see Robert De Niro taking on a somewhat more complicated role, the trailers still don't show him fully engaged with the material. The fire in his belly that was there for “The Godfather: Part 2,” “Taxi Driver” and “The King of Comedy” seems to be long extinguished and the story of a stand-up comedian with a second chance at a career doesn't seem to be stoking it. One more great De Niro performance is all we want... Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX. THE FOUNDER: Michael Keaton gives what will probably be an Oscar-nominated performance as Ray Kroc, the man who lived the American dream by stealing it from someone else. A timely cautionary tale about vulture capitalism and the lengths Americans will go to for a few billion bucks. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX | Sisters Movie House THE SPACE BETWEEN US: A science fiction

romance about a boy born on Mars who falls in love with a girl from Earth. It's looks cheesy, sappy and downright ridiculous, but it also should be a wonderful blast of youthful optimism. This could be one of the worst movies ever, or a delightful bit of goofiness...mileage may vary. See full review on pg 35. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE: As goofy as this ultimately is, the success of the “Fast and Furious” franchise allowed Vin Diesel to reignite one of his old failed characters. The original “XXX” felt like an ad for some terrible energy drink and was outright terrible, but this new take on the series adds Donnie Yen riding dirt bikes on the ocean and Ice Cube with a grenade launcher.

bikes, he replied, “Really, I just liked riding my bike and the fact that it was a good vehicle for adventure. That adventure became going to bike races, traveling around that way and seeing different places to ride.” Looking for an effective location to train year around, Craig moved to Bend in 2003. Ultimately, the combination of Central Oregon’s geography, weather and recreational opportunities provided him with the perfect place to call home. Being an avid skier, winters were a welcoming change of pace from the strains of the summer cycling season. For him, the biggest challenge in being a professional athlete was managing all the factors: traveling, training, racing, staying healthy, staying motivated and staying balanced. Living in Bend provided Craig with what he needed to have a balanced life as an athlete. “The people are great, we have our community here. It’s awesome to see familiar faces around, doing the right thing and appreciating it. And obviously the surroundings. We live in Cascadia, right! There’s a lifetime supply of awesome things in the hills or wherever around here. So yeah, I think that the people and the place are what make it right.” After racing professionally for over half his life, 2017 marks his first year of retirement in the world of elite bicycle racing. He will race for fun here and there, but the idea of maintaining a high level of fitness to test that fitness against others doesn’t interest him as much as using a bike to get around and adventure.

arly one morning, a friend and I agreed to meet at Mt. Bachelor for some sweet turns. The roads were clear of snow and it was a beautiful sunny spring day. Commuting to our mountainous destination, I noticed a motorcyclist in my rear view mirror, skis attached to his backpack. He waited until it was safe to pass and politely waved while speeding ahead. Unbeknownst to me at the time, that motorcyclist was Adam Craig, professional cyclist and avid multisport adventurer. Raised in Exeter, Maine, Craig is no stranger to adventurous outdoor activities. He embraced cycling, skiing, kayaking and motorsports. As a teenager he won a junior national cross country ski championship and earned two state high school ski titles as best all-around skier. Fresh out of the nest as an 18-yearold, he moved to the Olympic training facility in Colorado Springs to pursue racing mountain bikes full time. He won three NORBA XC titles, impressed the folks at Giant Bicycles, and has been making a living racing bicycles ever since. The highlights of his career include achieving his first podium at a World Cup race in Italy during 2004 and also competing at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China. However, his best memories have been off the clock, before or after a race exploring somewhere and finding some hidden gem of a trail that he hadn’t known existed. When I asked the 35-year-old athlete what inspired him to start racing

“I’ll be riding as much as ever, but it won’t be to demonstrate my dominance,” he says. A big part of what he wants to do going forward in this next phase of his life is to get more involved in trail access, advocacy and construction. “I’d like to see more urban off-road routes connecting green space to green space and giving people an opportunity to move around town away from the streets as much as they can, whether it’s bike paths or walking paths or dirt paths that people can use to get from neighborhood to neighborhood.” “We’ve got some really great momentum with a lot of projects around the West and around the

country these days. So I want to be involved in that. Also getting into custom guiding for folks, riding places that they may not be able to get to on their own. Trying to inspire people that way. Show people a good time, ultimately, whether it’s by building trails or telling a story or taking people somewhere.”  SW Adam Craig

Cougar killings back in the news By Jim Anderson those poor cougars, and that’s when the whole thing dropped into the lap of the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife. State law says cougars will be lethally destroyed if they begin eating domestic animals. Period! No excuses, no reprieve from Gov. Brown or anyone else, and whose fault is it? Not the cougars'…! Cougars do not like to eat pets. Cougars, for that matter, don’t like to be in town; it makes them nervous and they don’t feel safe. They have enough trouble staying alive in the so-called, “wild.” Wandering around La Pine looking for chickens to eat is not their style. And it’s not peaches-and-cream for those deer out on the winter range either. They have a couple of feet of crusted snow to dig through to get to any grasses. For them, bitterbrush is the key to survival. What everyone out there on the winter range is waiting for, and trying to get to, are those luscious herbs and brand new sprouts waiting under the snow for sunlight; that’s the real health food for mule deer and elk. The Cougar Hunting Season To answer the question a lot of people have been asking: There is a hunting season on cougars, beginning on Jan. 1 and running through Dec. 31—or— until Hunt Zone quotas have been met, whichever occurs first. The entire state is open. However, specific Hunt Quota zones will be closed if harvest quotas for the year are met in that zone. Look on the ODFW website at the "Cougar Quota Page" or Oregon Big Game Regulations for quotas. The bag limit

is one cougar per tag, except that it is unlawful to take spotted kittens or females with spotted kittens. Why kill cougars? Hunting licenses and cougar tags bring much-needed money into coffers of ODFW. It also satisfies that group of people who enjoy killing lions, and it supplies wildlife biologists with special biological information about specific cougar specimens. However, as far as impacting the prey cougar go after, such as elk and mule deer, that opens the door to many, many questions about predator and prey relationships. The current research regarding wolves and elk demonstrates that natural removal of prey by predators is one of the key factors in maintaining a healthy ecosystem, with plenty left over for the sport hunters. Cougars undoubtedly play that same role. My personal opinion—based on watching the indiscriminate killing of coyotes over the years—is that wildlife management agencies have to have a plausible

working reason before they allow killing any animal “for the fun of it.” ODFW states that any person hunting cougars must have—on their person—a valid adult hunting license for the current year and a general season cougar tag and/or an additional cougar tag. An additional tag may be purchased throughout the season. However, hunters must purchase the general season tag prior to the deadline to be eligible. ODFW further states that no person shall use dogs for the taking or pursuit of cougars, and permission is required to hunt on privately owned land. Any cougar taken must be presented at an ODFW office within 10 days of the kill to be checked and marked. The bottom line is, if you don’t want a cougar trying to eat Rover, Kittycat, and your cock-a-doodle-dos, do as the ODFW wildlife biologists have been asking over and over and stop feeding the mule deer!

here is no question that this is what a lot of people are calling a tough winter. Recently, there was a dead deer lying on the south side of the Bend/Sisters Highway, out behind the old Lazy Z headquarters. You couldn’t miss it because there were usually at least one or two bald eagles partaking of much-needed protein and a couple of raven helping out. That dead deer is where it was and not out with its family on the deer winter range because it was probably hooked on the goodies given it in town. Sure, the City passed an ordinance making it unlawful to feed the pretty deer in people’s backyards…but who’s enforcing it? Meanwhile, a string of dead pets and the five cougars recently shot by officials in La Pine are probably saying the same thing: Watch out what you eat—it can kill you. One of the reasons those cougars were probably caught with their pants down, killing pets and chickens, is they were already there before the big snows, invisible to most everyone, making a living on the deer that people were feeding. Those deer should have left to spend winter out near Silver Lake and Fort Rock, with all the thousands of others out there as we speak. But I’ll bet they were hooked on the candy offered them by the well-meaning residents of the La Pine country. When the snow hit, that cougar mom and her growing kittens made short work of those pet deer, not understanding that once they were gone that was it. After that there were only domestic animals left for

First Time Buyer Challenges for the Coming Year

A

from an average of 3.4 percent for a 30-year fixed loan in September to 4.2 percent in December 2016. First-time buyers depend heavily on financing and affordability. Higher interest rates and higher home prices, combined with stagnant wages, are not helping the situation. While mortgage rates are higher, they are still at historical lows. What is happening nationally is also very true of our local market in terms of rising prices, low inventory, rising rent costs and mortgage rates. These factors coupled with low wage growth, are increasing the challenges faced by first-time buyers, many of whom are rushing to buy before rates and prices increase further.

ccording to a recent report from the National Association of Realtors, first-time buyers comprised 32 percent of the nationwide home sales in 2016. Low inventory, rising home prices, rising rent costs, and rising mortgage rates are the biggest challenges facing first-time homebuyers. The report states that 2016 housing inventory declined by 11 percent compared to 2015 levels. About 25 percent of the homes for sale in 2016 were in the starter range, defined as the lower third of the market. According to an analysis of the numbers by Trulia, this is 12 percent less than it was in 2015. Rising prices and mortgage rates are not helping the situation for first time buyers. Mortgage rates have climbed

ADVICE GODDESS Savings And Alone

I’m a 28-year-old guy in a corporate job. I’m out there trying to meet women and date (or hook up), but I’m not doing so well. In college, I was able to hook up and get girlfriends pretty easily, and I haven’t put on 100 pounds or anything. I’ve noticed that three of my male co-workers (at my same level at work) are getting lots of girls. All three are in major debt from buying clothes and leasing cars they really can’t afford. Is being on the road to bankruptcy really what it takes to impress the ladies? —Living Within My Means

WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / February 9, 2017  /  BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

Candlelight all over your apartment is really romantic — unless you’re using it because they’ve cut your power off again. When women finally start looking to settle down and make a life with a man, the last thing they want is some credit-card-surfing spenditarian who gets his exercise running from collection agents. However, despite this, women can also be like blue jays on shiny objects — especially shiny objects with, say, Audi emblems — and men’s “mate competition” through spendy-spend-spending reflects that. Research on men and women ages 18 to 45 by evolutionary social psychologist Daniel Kruger found that men who had run up credit card debt were more likely to have multiple sex partners than their more sensibly spending bros. (Women’s debt level didn’t have any meaningful effect on their sexual body count.) Again — rather obviously — women aren’t all “I’m looking for a man who’ll eventually have to crowdfund our children’s dental bills.” However, looking at Kruger’s findings, another evolutionary psychologist, Glenn Geher, speculates that men’s over-

spending “may act as a false signal of wealth, and although it is a false signal” (of the ability to provide resources for a woman and any children) “sometimes this deception is effective.” As for why that might be, just as a guy doesn’t get to ask a woman whether her genes or steel-belted Spanx are the force behind her supermodel abs, a woman won’t be poring over a guy’s credit report at the bar. She’ll just paw admiringly at the cashmere hoodie he took out two loans and sold his twin brother into slavery to buy. This isn’t to say you need to go into the red to get girls. It’s ultimately a bad strategy for any guy who wants more than a string of flings. However, what would probably lead more women to give you a chance are the first-glance trappings of success — beautiful shoes, designer eyeglass frames, that fab cashmere sweater, and maybe a really nice soft leather jacket. The thing is, you can get these items simply by shopping shrewdly — like at end-of-year sales or on eBay. They’ll surely cost more than the duds you’d otherwise buy, but consider them investments to get you in the door. Remember, even women who want a boyfriend who’s fiscally responsible are likely to be impressed by that sweater that took four years combing a Mongolian goat to make. And let’s say some woman’s just looking for a hookup. It’s all good; she won’t know you long enough to discover that although you do drive a brandnew “alternative-fuel” vehicle, it isn’t a Tesla; it’s a Schwinn.

ASTROLOGY

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Here’s your man-

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “We cannot simply sit and stare at our wounds forever,” writes Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami. “We must stand up and move on to the next action.” That’s your slightly scolding but ultimately inspirational advice, Pisces. According to my astrological analysis, you have done heroic work to identify and investigate your suffering. You have summoned a tremendous amount of intelligence in order to understand it and further the healing. But right now it’s time to turn your focus to other matters. Like what? How about rebirth?

ARIES (March 21-April 19): By my estimates, 72 percent of you Aries are in unusually good moods. The world seems friendlier, more cooperative. Fifty-six percent of you feel more in love with life than you have in a long time. You may even imagine that the birds and trees and stars are flirting with you. I’m also guessing that 14 percent of you are weaving in and out of being absurdly, deliriously happy, sometimes without any apparent explanation. As a result of your generosity of spirit, you may be the recipient of seemingly impossible rewards like free money or toasted ice cream or unconditional tenderness. And I bet that at least ten percent of you are experiencing all of the above.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I am launching a campaign to undo obsolete stereotypes about you Bulls. There are still backwards astrologers out there who perpetrate the lie that many of you are stingy, stolid, stubborn slowpokes. As an antidote, I plan to heighten everyone’s awareness of your sensual, soulful sweetness, and your tastefully pragmatic sensitivity, and your diligent, dynamic productivity. That should be easy in the coming weeks, since you’ll be at the height of your ability to express those superpowers. Luckily, people will also have an enhanced capacity to appreciate you for who you really are. It will be a favorable time to clarify and strengthen your reputation. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Will Giovanni surreptitiously replace Allesandra’s birth control pills with placebos? Will Camille take a hidden crowbar to her rendezvous with the blackmailer? Will Josie steal Jose’s diary and sell it on eBay? Given the current astrological omens, you may have an unconscious attraction to soap opera-type events like those. The glamour of melodrama is tempting you. But I’m hoping and predicting that you will express the cosmic currents in less toxic ways. Maybe you’ll hear a searing but healing confession after midnight in the pouring rain, for instance. Perhaps you’ll break an outworn taboo with ingenious grace, or forge a fertile link with a reformed rascal, or recover a lost memory in a dusty basement.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): All naturally-occurring matter on earth is composed of 92 basic elements arranged in various combinations. Since some of these appear in trace amounts, they took a long time for humans to discover. In the 18th and 19th centuries, chemists were exuberant when they tracked down seven of the 92 in a single location: an underground mine on the Swedish island of Ytterby. That small place was a mother lode. I’m predicting a metaphorically similar experience for you, Cancerian: new access to a concentrated source that will yield much illumination.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The next four weeks will be an excellent time to upgrade your understanding of the important characters in your life. In fact, I suspect you will generate good fortune and meaningful synchronicities whenever you seek

greater insight into anyone who affects you. Get to know people better, Leo! If there are intriguing acquaintances who pique your curiosity, find out more about them. Study the oddballs you’re allergic to with the intention to discern their hidden workings. In general, practice being objective as you improve your skill at reading human nature.

43

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In 1787, English captain Arthur Phillip led an eight-month naval expedition to the southeastern part of the continent now known as Australia. Upon arrival, he claimed the land for England, despite the fact that 250,000 Aboriginal people were living there, just as their ancestors had for 2,000 generations. Two hundred years later, an Aboriginal activist named Burnum Burnum planted the Aboriginal flag on the White Cliffs of Dover, claiming England for his people. I encourage you to make a comparably artful or symbolic act like Burnum’s sometime soon, Virgo — a ritual or gesture to assert your sovereignty or evoke a well-deserved reversal or express your unconquerable spirit.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The ancient Roman rhetorician Quintilian authored a twelve-volume textbook on the art of oratory. As ample as it was, it could have been longer. “Erasure is as important as writing,” he said. According to my reading of the astrological omens, that counsel should be a rewarding and even exciting theme for you in the coming weeks. For the long-term health of your labor of love or your masterpiece, you should focus for a while on what to edit out of it. How could you improve it by making it shorter and more concise?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do you know about the long-running kids’ show “Sesame Street”? Are you familiar with Big Bird, the talking eight-feet-tall yellow canary who’s one of the main characters? I hope so, because your horoscope is built around them. In the “Sesame Street” episode called “Don’t Eat the Pictures,” Big Bird solves a riddle that frees a 4,000-year-old Egyptian prince from an ancient curse. I think this vignette can serve as a model for your own liberation. How? You can finally outwit and outmaneuver a very old problem with the help of some playful, even child-like energy. Don’t assume that you’ve got to be relentlessly serious and dour in order to shed the ancient burden. In fact, just the opposite is true. Trust blithe and rowdy spirits.

COMING SOON

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your lessons in communication are reaching a climax. Here are five tips to help you do well on your “final exam.” 1. Focus more on listening for what you need to know rather than on expressing what you already know. 2. Keep white lies and convenient deceptions to a bare minimum. 3. Tell the truth as strong and free as you dare, but always — if possible — with shrewd kindness. 4. You are more likely to help your cause if you spread bright, shiny gossip instead of the grubby kind. 5. Experiment with being unpredictable; try to infuse your transmissions with unexpected information and turns of phrase.

LOOK FOR IT ON MARCH 2ND

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The meaning of the Latin phrase “crambe repetita” is “cabbage reheated, twice-cooked.” I urge you to avoid partaking of such a dish in the coming weeks, both literally and figuratively. If you’re truly hungry for cooked cabbage, eat it fresh. Likewise, if you have a ravenous appetite for stories, revelations, entertainment, and information — which I suspect you will — don’t accept the warmed-over, recycled variety. Insist on the brisk, crisp stuff that excites your curiosity and appeals to your sense of wonder.

tra for the next three weeks: “I know what I want, and I know how to glide it into my life.” Say this out loud 11 times right after you wake up each morning, and 11 more times before lunch, and 11 more times at bedtime. “I know what I want, and I know how to glide it into my life.” Whenever you do this little chant, summon an upflow of smiling confidence — a serene certainty that no matter how long the magic might take, it will ultimately work. “I know what I want, and I know how to glide it into my life.” Don’t let any little voice in your head undermine your link to this simple truth. Lift your heart to the highest source of vitality you can imagine.

o you like zombies? Based on the ratings of all the shows that feature flesh-eating former humans having their rotting domes blasted off by sweaty survivors with 12-gauge shotguns, probably yes. Based on that info, would you be excited to hear that we have a drug on the market that is causing people to actually act like zombies? (Because of your probable aforementioned enjoyment of zombies is why I ask.) I hope so, because today we are going to look at “synthetic cannabis” and the Walking Dead. We start with the discovery in the late 1980s of the cannabinoid receptor—the receptor in the brain that is stimulated by THC. Enter a Clemson University researcher named John W. Hoffman, or JWH as he is known, along with his legacy of products. JWH used funds from the National Institute of Drug Abuse to develop hundreds of “synthetic cannabinoids,” named solely because they bind to the cannabinoid receptor, not because they get you stoned. Until then, THC from cannabis was what would “bind” to these receptors, so to discover that you could synthesize compounds that would also bind was a breakthrough for researchers. In 1993, JWH created a synthetic compound called JWH-018. He published the formulas through standard scientific information sharing channels, and a book called “The Cannabinoid Receptors.” Some 15 years later, in 2008, some very creative Germans with rather dark and disturbing intentions (who aren’t Werner Herzog ) sprayed some synthetic cannabinoids, including JWH-018, onto some leaves, and sold it under the innocuous name “Spice.” This is where it gets bad.

Spice spread and calls to poison control centers grew. In 2009, 112 calls were made about synthetic cannabinoids. By 2011, it was 6,549. That year the Drug Enforcement Agency banned five synthetic cannabinoids, three of which were the work of JWH, who never intended his work to be used this way, and called the chemists who used his formula in this matter “idiots.” In 2015, emergency rooms in New York City reported 6,000 visits related to Spice, and two deaths. The formulas evolved and grew

more sophisticated, which brings us up to the summer of 2016 (such an innocent time), when the zombies finally arrived. Say hello to K2, the zanier cousin of Spice. In July 2016, a group of regular users of the drug in Brooklyn had a very bad reaction to a new batch. There were 33 regular users, to be exact, who exhibited “altered mental states” and other serious effects, enough to be taken to hospitals. They were recorded by a passerby who said “...“It’s like a scene out of a zombie movie, a horrible scene. This drug truly paralyzed people.” He shot footage showing a real life hellscape of the unconscious and the soon-to-be-unconscious, most stumbling, empty-eyed, moaning, staggering and exhibiting other classic zombie-like behaviors. This batch was sold under the very Trump-ish name AK-47 24 Karat Gold, and had a synthetic cannabinoid as its active ingredient known as AMB-FUBINACA. (But don’t blame our buddy JWH, as this one was made by our newest, bestest friends, the good people at Pfizer Pharmaceuticals.) AMB is 50 times stronger than its predecessor, K2. The Brooklyn batch tested at 85 times the potency of THC, and had 16 milligrams of AMB per 1 gram of product. What twisted soul sucker of a pusher is slinging this poison? Until recently, convenience stores, which openly sold products labeled with such unambiguous labels as “Dank Potpourri.” Yup, a quart of milk, chips and some Zombie Powder, please. It’s been banned from store shelves recently, but enforcement can be spotty, and is readily available via street dealers. This is (one reason) why your friendly neighborhood cannabis industry participant is in tears most days— because they are being choked into extinction by regulatory agencies treating them as a far greater threat to the community than stores that sell this garbage. It’s hard to understand why the restrictions placed upon them are far more stringent than for other products that can turn you into a zombie. Fuck synthetics, stick with organic, locally-sourced craft cannabis and avoid powders from foreign labs. These days are scary enough without real life zombies.
