Standoffs between the judicial and executive branches over the seven-Muslim-country travel ban. Hotly-debated Cabinet picks. The prospect of a Mexican border wall—and talk of heavy tariffs on south-of-the-border produce, to boot. If there’s one thing we can say

about this time in our nation’s history, it’s that there’s been lots to talk about— and for many, lots to protest. If you’re one of the many who’s ready to take action in opposition to the 45th president, you’re not alone. According to Gallup polls, the president’s approval rating has been steadily declining since the election, sitting at 40 percent as of Feb. 14—more than 10 points lower than any of the past nine presidents during the February of their first years, and 24 points lower than Barack Obama’s first February. It’s an “interesting” time to be an American, and for many, the interest lies in getting more active. To that end, we have you covered, Central Oregon. Keep reading for your #ActivistPlaybook on:

Open school board spot: It’s nice to see so much engagement in a local race








Since 1962

Wilsons of Redmond Next to Olive Garden

ay what you want about the last election cycle. Say it was a travesty. Say it was a triumph. But whatever you say about it all, you cannot say that it was yet another round of politics as usual. The new atmosphere in Washington has brought about a new tide of political activism that is reaching down to the local, state and national levels. This is long overdue. For the newly political or those hoping to be, we’ve dedicated this week'sissue to activism. An active electorate is reflected in a robust election cycle. This is created when citizens move from activism to office. Locally this surge of political interest can be found in the upcoming Bend-LaPine School Board race. According to board chair Peggy Kinkade, only three of the current seven members of the Bend-La Pine School Board were originally elected to their positions. In the past 10 years, six people were appointed to school board positions, Kinkade told the Source. The process of avoiding an election and appointing a board member can often have a chilling effect on the democratic process. A school board member wants to step down, but instead of leaving just before the election, he or she leaves prior to the end of their term, allowing the other board members to appoint someone to stand in the spot. That appointed person then becomes the incumbent. An incumbent, while not necessarily better qualified, will often have an advantage in name recognition, support of the existing board and prior service. Since incumbents are more challenging to beat in a general election, it discourages many newcomers from running, and

often these incumbents slide into their position unopposed and not thoroughly vetted by the electorate. This time around, with the early exit of Nori Juba from the school board, 26 people have put their names in the hat for his position. That’s encouraging. It indicates community members are paying attention to political races, like the school board, which can often fly under the electorate radar. School board positions are important. Board members angle for the location of new schools, for the contract to build those new schools, for the teachers and administrators who will lead those schools, and for the curriculum that will guide students. They also influence collective bargaining agreements. Those are lofty responsibilities. On Wednesday Feb. 15, the school board will began interviewing the 26 people vying for the appointed seat. Whoever gets that coveted spot will have the precious “incumbent” status. Ahead of the May elections season, we hope to see just as many interested parties throwing their hats in the ring for the position in hopes for a strong debate about our communities' school priorities. And, we trust this is a trend for every one of our local races going forward. We hope this is the first of many races in which people take their activism beyond the ballot box and further into public service.  SW


IN RESPONSE TO, LADIES OF LEAD (2/9) Real cowgirls or real facts. The attraction to being one of those strong “Ladies of Lead” like the one in the photo strikes us Americans easily. We are an independent lot that thinks that by holding a gun like a cowboy, in a great picture, we’ll be forever safe from the bad guys. But we are now seeing a country overrun with important decisions based on just such dramatic thought that is not based on facts. Thank you, Source, for also printing that graph, which tells the picture much better. The fact is: having a gun in the house increases risk of homicide 40-170 percent risk of unintentional death by gun 370 percent and risk of suicide 90-460 percent according to the New England Journal of Medicine. The real statistics show that if the current rate continues, more youth will die from gun violence than by car accidents by next year. But at least, the outrageous level of suicide should make us think twice. And if you think, “Well, if not a gun, they’d just use another method,” that’s also incorrect. Most suicide victims take their life only after hours of deciding too. On a personal note, I can tell you that if my sister’s husband didn’t think a loaded handgun in the bureau drawer would keep them safer, she wouldn’t have had that gun to pull the trigger on herself in 2009. And I’ve met hundreds of people now that say the same. The statistics say that owning a handgun to protect your family actually makes your family less safe. Ladies, let’s learn how to protect ourselves without putting our loved ones at risk with a handgun in the house. Take a martial arts class. — Bev Buswell

IN RESPONSE TO, THE DARKNESS OF NOON, (1/25) At the same time Oregon already has its own National Socialist wannabes rioting, burning, looting, breaking windows, assaulting police officers and channeling their best Brownshirt brethren from 1920’s

Germany, you apparently think it’s helpful to feature a Baltimore-based editor showing our locals how to do it right while dressed in black, with masks, throwing bricks and concrete, and burning limos? It would require uncommon newsroom courage, and you could do something different. Why not prominently publish on your front page the attached county-by-county electoral map illustrating that for the most part, the great heartland, soul and center of America is sound, on solid ground and unified? And in addition to an electoral mandate, with the exception of California, Trump achieved over a 1.5 million 49-state popular vote win as well. What’s to protest? Every presidential election has winners and losers. This year the Left lost. Romanticizing thuggish paramilitary Brownshirt “black bloc” tactics of intimidation and property destruction won’t change that fact one bit. Wouldn’t it be better to encourage healing and harmony instead? Respectfully, — David L. Dittman

GUNS AND GRIZZLIES In the current environment, politicians and nominees suggest that guns will effectively protect our students and our teachers in our schools. The expression “Guns and Grizzles” is often used to proclaim support for this proposal, which is not only dangerous, but erroneous. In fact, this conflation creates a dangerous environment for both our schools and our ecosystems because guns are not an effective protective device in either circumstance. First of all, school safety is a paramount concern for our communities. We do need to devote resources to creating safe places, and we need to consider a safe place in a myriad of circumstances. The largest threat we have faced in our schools recently has been degraded infrastructure, and these structures provide havens for our community in disasters. Thus, the loss of these buildings and safe water are not only losses to our schools, but losses to our future ability to cope and respond to disasters and community needs. Schools are in need of protection, but that protection is best achieved through non-lethal forms of protection. In such an environment, we can protect our people, and we can advance our discussions to responses to disasters and traumatic events. With a divided focus, we fail to redress the true harm by our debate and our inaction when disasters do arise. The arming of our schools creates a traumatic environment for many of its students and teachers, its visitors and first respondents. Protect our schools with non-lethal methods so that we can focus our attention on how to heal after traumatic events

and disasters. After Sandy Hook, a senior at Sentinel High in Montana, Madison Thomas, proposed that we protect our students and teachers using non-lethal methods of protection (PBS Newshour, Feb. 2013). Her senior research on bears helped her see that non-lethal pepper spray may be useful in protecting students and teachers in our schools. Similarly, protection against grizzlies is best achieved with sprays, not guns. State and federal agencies propose the use of bear spray over firearms for the visiting public and their officers. The use of non-lethal methods is also consistent with environmental policies that recognize our role as intruders in natural ecosystems. The arming of our schools fails to foster safe environments just as the arming of federal park officials is discouraged. As concerned citizens, we do need to temper our effect on trauma—both psychological and physical, both elementary and environmental. Creating effective and non-traumatic reactions empowers people to be both responsive and responsible. — Lisa Goetz-Bouknight

LETTER OF THE WEEK Lisa, come on in for your gift card to Palate! You have a valid point—but it also brings up another one: The most looming “grizzly” in our schools seems to be a lack of funding. And David: Fun, real fact: 53.64 percent of voters in Deschutes County did not vote for the current president. And last time I checked, California voters still get a say in who’s elected. We don’t condone violence, but in light of our First Amendment right to (peacefully) petition the government for the redress of grievances, I ask you, what’s not to protest?!

In 2/9’s “Ladies of Lead,” we paraphrased a statement by Sharon Preston, writing “Knives, she says, kill more people than guns by far.” Years of recent FBI data indicate the opposite, and Preston has since stated to the Source that she misspoke— intending instead to state that knives are involved in more incidents of violence, not in more killings. In 2/2’s “Source Spotlight,” John McLeod’s statement about the new Mt. Bachelor chair lift “taking pressure off Summit,” was misstated. McLeod said the new chair will take pressure off the Sunrise lift, not Summit.

ing in Oregon, my question is, “and replace it with what?” There has never been a confirmed cougar attack on a human in the state of Oregon. By contrast, California voters banned cougar hunting in 1990, and since then there have been over a dozen attacks on humans, three of them fatal. That’s more than in the previous hundred years combined. Jim Anderson concluded in the Feb. 9, 2017 issue of the Source that if people want to stop attracting cougars into their neighborhoods, they should stop feeding the deer they prey on. That’s good advice, but is unworkable as a wildlife management strategy. In the first place, it’s logistically unenforceable, and second, wildlife behavior is seldom that easily manipulated. The argument against hunting cougars rests solely on a few studies that suggest that hunting disrupts the cats’ social hierarchy, which may increase conflicts with people as young males competing for territory come into closer contact with communities. True or not, it still doesn’t offer a viable solution to managing the big cats. California voters’ zeal to protect the lions resulted in 3,003 depredation permits being issued between 2000 and 2015, with 1,530 cougars killed. Clearly not their intent. In places where it’s allowed, hunting helps keep predators and other wildlife from becoming habituated to humans. And when well regulated it has been astonishingly successful at conserving species and their habitat. More than that though, our ancestors have been hunting for two million years, and carved out a niche in the world based on that predator/prey relationship. It’s only been in the last twelve thousand years or so that people began moving away from hunting in favor of a more agrarian lifestyle, with the trend not really taking off till the industrial revolution of the 1800s. That’s just the tiniest sliver of time, yet in that sliver an overwhelming parade of the world’s wildlife has either vanished or is on the way there. So I’m skeptical when non-hunting advocates try to craft wildlife management policy. If people care and really want to live with cougars and other wildlife, they should avoid trying to manage wildlife through the ballot box. They should stop trying to strip fish and wildlife agencies of the tools they need, and let the professionals do what they do best - ensure that both predators and prey have a chance to flourish in the face of an expanding human population. — Ed Putnam

More than 1,500 Oregonians packed into Sen. Ron Wyden’s Town Hall in Linn County on Feb. 4. Legislative staffers say the amount of civic engagement since the election has seen a serious uptick.

How to Rock a Town Hall And other ways to get your voice heard by your legislators Nikki Roemmer, regional director of the Oregon League of Conservation Voters, has noticed a dramatic change in local citizen engagement since the presidential election. “People are really fired up at what’s going on at the federal level,” she says. “I’ve never seen so many people looking to get involved and get their voices heard.” If you’re among those who want to provide your opinion on specific issues to local, state or federal public officials, you have a number of options, depending on how much time you have and how much of an impact you want to make. Petitions Signing petitions is perhaps the least time-consuming option. Although the impact is generally minimal, Sara Hottman, state communications director for Sen. Jeff Merkley, noted that when the senator received a petition in January signed by 1.4 million citizens, it gave him the impetus he needed to call a press conference that garnered statewide media coverage. Phone calls, emails and snail mail According to Hottman, Sen. Merkley’s field office in Bend received about 10 phone calls per day before the election. “Now,” she says, “it’s easily three times that per hour.” She added that the Portland office recently received 37,000 physical mailings in a single week. When lawmakers received fewer phone calls each day, the calls might have stood out more than emails and snail mail. But now, Andrew Malcolm, communications director for Rep. Greg Walden, says, “All those methods work; they all get tallied the same way.” Hottman agrees, noting, “It might be most satisfying to call and talk to someone, but the reality is that, whether emailed or called or mailed in, it’s all counted the same way.” Whichever method you use, the most important information to provide is your name, where you live (so they know you’re a constituent), the

issue you’re concerned about and your opinion on that issue. Office visits Individuals and groups can drop in at public officials’ offices, although Hottman suggests making an appointment, especially if your goal is to speak with a high-level staff member. Before visiting, Roemmer says, “You definitely want to prepare your message.” She encourages people to research all sides of issues they care about and attend educational events such as OLCV’s monthly Pints & Politics discussion. During the meetings, Roemmer advises, “Be polite, be direct, and have a clear message and clear ‘ask.’ Also make sure you thank the legislator for their time, and follow up with a thankyou note.” Town halls Town halls offer a unique opportunity to speak directly to state-level officials and hear from fellow citizens. Sen. Ron Wyden and Sen. Merkley typically conduct at least one town hall in every county of the state each year. In 2016, Malcolm noted that Rep. Walden held 27 in-person town halls in the 20 counties he represents, and he said Walden plans to hold at least one in Deschutes County sometime this year, with Wyden having three planned in Central Oregon this month. Even if you don’t want to ask a question at a town hall, or aren’t called upon, Hottman says you can make your views evident through positive, symbolic means. “It has an effect when people show up in coordinating outfits, or have signs saying they’re all part of the same group. It sends a message without having to ask a question.” In addition, she suggests writing down your question and contact information, and handing the information to a staff member if you aren’t called upon. Whatever methods people use to express their views, Roemmer says she’s simply excited to see increasing local interest and involvement in politics. “Now, the important thing is to keep it up,” she says. “Let’s stay consistently engaged, and let’s be proud and strong with our voice.” SW


Run, Dammit!

Ready to tackle local politics? Here’s advice on how to run from women in the know By Magdalena Bokowa

CRAFTING A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PASSION Running an election campaign is a daunting, ever consuming task, no matter how small the seat. At one point, every successful candidate has faced this challenge and more than likely lost. “Been there, done that,” says Judy Stiegler, who served in the Oregon House of Representatives from 2009 to 2011. Stiegler, now a political science professor at COCC, laughs as she recounts the races she’s run, both successfully and unsuccessfully. “You have to have passion to get you through the tough times… because there will be many.” To narrow down your options, look for common themes of interest. Does public education or parks make you tick? Expansion of services or planning? Chances are, there’s a public office or committee position for it. Once identified, articulating your message is just as important as the passion. Stiegler states, “People are going to ask...why are you doing this? And you need to know why. You have to have a reason, a rationale in wanting to do that job.” Also note, the higher profile the role, the more work it’s going to be. DON’T KNOCK DOOR KNOCKING Gena Goodman-Campbell, the Democratic party’s local candidate for last year’s Oregon’s House of Representative seat, credits her boots-on-theground attitude to getting her name out there. “I was surprised at how much I liked it,“ she says. “It gave me an opportunity to connect with voters, get my name out there, and listen to what they had to say. People want to see people stepping up...especially women and the younger generation.”

Amassing a crew of volunteers to get your name out there is crucial for widespread reach. “Particularly for local races,” says Stiegler, “you can’t beat feet on the street.” Jennifer Stephens, Rep. Knute Buehler’s campaign manager for both the 2014 and 2016 races, also credits his win to door knocking and his ability to engage with voters. She notes, “Knute still recalls many of the interactions he had with voters while on the campaign trail when a specific issue comes up. That’s how important those interactions were.” Goodman-Campbell urges candidates to listen to voters and then take a stand on an issue. “People want to know you have strong positions even if they don’t agree,” she says. “They will trust you more once they see you have strong values and provide solutions for their issues.” Stiegler also emphasizes not to discredit each vote you gain. “I can tell you personally that each vote counts,” she says. When she ran in 2004, she lost her race by a mere 584 votes. AMASS CASH FLOW Even the most volunteer-driven campaigns need funding. Both Stiegler and Goodman-Campbell note that fundraising was the least enjoyable and most daunting part of their endeavors. “You’re essentially cold-calling someone,” Stiegler remarks. “But if you stick to your message, and know your

Goodman- Campbell’s funding and name recognition soared and she ended up losing by just 1,683 votes. Not bad for a 33-year old-candidate who didn’t know she was going to run until a few months before the election. Had she entered the race earlier, the outcome may have been different. SOCIAL MEDIA + SUBSTANCE Rep. Buehler’s campaign gleamed like a well-oiled machine, and Stephens credits this to his willingness to not only door knock and fundraise but engage with users through social media. “Knute is constantly posting on social media and engaging with his voters,” she says, “and I can personally say that he reads each and every comment on there to try and listen to what voters are telling him.” A strong social media campaign exposes candidates to a reach beyond the traditional scope of just boots on the ground. If

"You can't beat feet on the street." — JUDY STIEGLER objective, then it gets a lot easier. If you say, ‘Hi I’m Judy, and I’m running for this office and this is what I think I can do, and I need your support to do it,’ it is incredible how far you will go. You just need to ask.” When Stiegler first first ran in 2004, she comments, “It was the most expensive house race in the history of Oregon. Each side spent $250,000.” For comparison, last year, Rep. Buehler, a Republican, spent $1.1 million. Goodman-Campbell, who garnered 47.77 percent of the vote to Rep. Buehler’s 51.92 percent, was outspent two to one. She says, “I’m curious whether or not it comes down to a numbers game. I didn’t realize that the reality of our system is that you have to ask everyone for money...because it all adds up.” She recalls that once she stopped resisting that fact, she started going out and connecting with voters. “It became easier to ask and I got better at it.” Toward the end,

savvy, candidates can take advantage to see what is trending and hop on hot button issues. Stiegler agrees, but also emphasizes the need for substance, especially in this changing political climate. She observes, “Well, I think people talk about the nastiness of campaigning today like it’s a new thing but if we go back into our history, we can see that’s always been prevalent. We’re people. It’s the human aspect of campaigning.” She urges candidates to turn to depth rather than “buzz words that catch people’s interest.” Substance over clickbait. She continues, “It can be hard when things get heated and bubble up to the surface. But I think we owe the voter some substance. They deserve to know more than catch phrases.” Her guess is that the local campaigns will only become more hotly contested. She laughs, adding, “If you want to see a real boring race, then run for a judge position. People complained that

nothing happened, but we had strict moral guidelines.” AND IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED… Keep trying. Failure is just a right of passage, and as Stephens says, “Although it’s a lot of hard work, everyone who’s interested, should experience an election campaign first hand, at least once.” Goodman-Campbell notes that the experience was life changing and that she learned many life lessons. One being, “That I had more energy and was more capable of hard work than I thought. That I was able to do it.” Stiegler recalls a time when people asked her why she keeps putting herself through the wringer. It’s the passion that pulls you through.” She laughs, “It’s like I told my son when we were hiking and he was complaining about it, saying it was hard. I said “You just got to put one foot in front of the other, dude. One step at a time.”  SW

n this polarizing political climate, there’s been a steep increase in feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Feelings of anxiety, conflict between friends and family and even depression, anger and violence leave many at a loss. But if you’re passionate about change, you can take that feeling of powerlessness and shift it into empowerment. On May 16, Deschutes County will hold elections to fill seats in a number of areas, including the Bend-La Pine, Redmond, Central Oregon Community College (COCC) and Sisters School Districts; Park & Recreation District positions in Bend, La Pine, Redmond and Sisters; Deschutes Public Library District positions; Rural Fire Protection Districts; Sanitary/Sewer Districts and local Water Districts. It’s an opportunity to create an impact on a local level. Here’s how to get started.

Zack Malitz says that “in the 2016 election, Democrats didn’t invest enough in going door to door and talking to voters. And where they did, they didn’t reach out to people who needed to be persuaded or who were perennially discouraged from voting.” So he and some other former Bernie Sanders campaign staffers and volunteers have organized canvassers to knock on every door in the country.

While the world is far from silent right now, a lot of you are wondering how to get started in being more active, and how to educate yourself in the political and activist spheres. You might not be able to go back to civics class, but here’s a handy guide of terms to help you along.

S SOUND Protest Songs

Political turmoil yields great music

GUNG HO FOR SHOWS By Magdalena Bokowa

by Magdalena Bokowa 13

Book these shows now so you don’t miss out. Inspired by the new boss, a new wave of protest songs may be just around the corner.


glass cage of emotion, you say? There’s a reason the best songs are usually about breakups, hardships or hey, tough political times. Political injustice and activism have long inspired musicians to produce important songs that still resonate long after the turmoil is over. Using music as a tool for protest isn’t anything new—but with the current political climate, we have a sneaking suspicion music in the U.S. is about to get reaaallly good. The 40s Way back when, Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land,” was dubbed as an alternative anthem to “God Bless America.” Original verses featured dark political commentary which eerily echo present day: “There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me. The sign was painted, said ‘Private Property.’ But on the backside, it didn’t say nothing. This land was made for you and me.” Perhaps someone should play this song in the Oval Office... The 60 and 70s Further drawing parallels to today, 1962 had the very real threat of nuclear war hanging over the world, as the U.S and the Soviet Union faced off with the Cuban Missile Crisis. Bob Dylan summarized the tension in post-war America with the song, “A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall” — although he later stressed that the lyrics weren’t meant to illustrate those ghastly nuclear side effects. As the ‘60s progressed and the Civil Rights Movement gained momentum, Gil Scott-Heron recorded “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” which attacked the inaction of the masses and parodied the seriousness of the struggle. “You will not be able to stay home, brother. You will not be able to plug in, turn on and drop out. You will not be able to lose yourself on skag

and skip.” The ‘60s were rife with conflict, and in 1968 demonstrations against the Vietnam War were taking place around the world. It led John Lennon to ponder whether violence was the answer, and he penned many antiwar songs including, “Revolution” and the simple protest song “Give Peace A Chance,” immediately adopted as an anti-war anthem. Always a powerhouse, he channeled the power of positive thinking in “Imagine,” although his next song, “Power to the People,” was more to the point. In contrast, Jim Morrison’s gruesome lyrics in “Unknown Soldier” depicted a very different, albeit realistic scene of the horrors of the Vietnam War with lyrics like “Unborn living, living dead, bullet strikes the helmet’s head, and it’s all over for the unknown soldier.” The 80s and 90s The 80s saw further public disillusionment. U2 came out with “Sunday Bloody Sunday” on their third album, “War,” about the British Army’s massacre of civil rights protesters in Ireland in 1972. Concurrently, Bruce Springsteen released “Born in the USA” to showcase his outrage about how the state had neglected Vietnam War veterans and how they were met with indifference and hostility once they returned. The controversial track, “Fuck Tha Police” by N.W.A., dropped in the late 80s, which featured an angry Ice Cube yelling, “They have the authority to kill a minority.” Tensions bubbled and a few years later Rodney King was savagely beaten by the Los Angeles Police, which led many to accuse them of institutionalized racism. The L.A. race riots sparked Public Enemy to release the notorious track, “Fight the Power,” which had the rap superstars singing “Our freedom of speech is freedom or death, we’ve got to fight

March 10-11 the powers that be.” At the same time, Rage Against The Machine’s, “Township Rebellion” connected racism and the notorious cross-burning activities of the Ku Klux Klan. The 2000s The dawn of the new century showcased the young generation’s varied worries, from climate change to race to immigration. Radiohead’s “Idioteque” was released after The Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change concluded in 2001 that global warming was very real. Thom Yorke gloomily sang, “We’re not scaremongering, this is really happening… ice age coming, ice age coming...Women and children first.” In the mid 2000s, the Gossip’s Beth Ditto didn’t take too kindly to the proposition of the Federal Marriage Amendment and wrote, “Standing in the Way of Control,” which highlighted her anger at her country’s discrimination toward same-sex marriage. M.I.A, a firstgeneration American and daughter of a Tamil activist, wrote “Paper Planes” as a snapshot of how she adapted from being a refugee to the daily struggles of living in corporate America. While, finally, after an 18-year hiatus, 90s hip-hop group, A Tribe Called Quest, released, “We the People,” offering a brutally honest illustration of the current racial tensions and climate in the U.S. Frightfully timely, Q-Tip raps, “All you black folks, you must go, all you Mexicans, you must go, and all you poor folks, you must go, Muslims and gays, boy we hate your ways, so all you bad folk, you must go.” Musicians will continue to release political music, finding inspiration in radical citizen-led movements such as the anti-Trump protests, Black Lives Matter or their own struggles. While modern protest songs may not yet be iconic, the spirit and message remains the same: Power to the people.  SW

STEVE MILLER BAND WITH PETER FRAMPTON Escape into the powerful nostalgia that is old school rock n’ roll when two greats hit the stage. This summer, The Steve Miller Band welcomes rock legend Peter Frampton to their lineup, and with a show this big, you’d better get your tickets extra early. Having first met in the ‘60s in London, both guitarists have played together from intimate venues to football stadiums. “He always sets the musical bar high, his band always knocks me out, and I’m thrilled we are going to spend the summer together doing a great run of concerts,” said Miller. “This is the kind of quality and talent we both strive to present and I’m looking forward to a summer of great music, exceptional performances and fun. Peter is a remarkable musician..” says the guy that IS Steve Miller. Come see both of these legends knock it out of the park. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am. // 6pm.

The Yellowjackets buzz by for some Riverhouse Jazz By Jared Rasic


Jazz Hands

The Yellowjackets with new bassist Dane Alderson.


he Yellowjackets have been together for decades, and while some of their line-up has changed multiple times over, their sound has stayed remarkably consistent. Formed in 1977 and originally known as the Robben Ford Group, the Los Angeles jazz group has released 26 albums since 1981, and has won numerous Grammy awards. The original lineup consisted of Robben Ford, Russell Ferrante, Jimmy Haslip and Ricky Lawson, who were all session musicians in L.A. Their sound initially combined blues, jazz fusion and prog rock, eventually moving away

from the rock and settling into a jazzfunk groove with occasional dabbling in soft R&B. The current lineup has Russell Ferrante on keyboards, Bob Mintzer on sax, Dane Alderson on bass and William Kennedy on drums. Their newest record, 2016’s “Cohearence,” sees them moving further afield from funk and settling into straightforward jazz. It’s a carefully crafted album, with meticulous compositions and flawless cohesion. Regardless of the line-up, The Yellowjackets are at the top of their game with no end in sight. SW

This is Not a Drill

Tips for taking part in direct action in Central Oregon and beyond By Jared Rasic



hen I was 20 I was pepper sprayed by the Bend Police Department and charged with inciting a riot. The “riot” was silly and the charges were eventually dropped, but I still remember the hiss of that spray as it shot across my living room. We probably deserved it. There were several dozen of us and only a few cops and we weren’t listening to instructions. That was a somewhat comical instance of civil disobedience—but on the whole, activism is something a lot more people are taking part in, in the wake of the presidential inauguration and the many unpopular executive orders coming out of the Oval these days. People with causes—the ones looking out for the planet and the

vulnerable, and not just themselves— deal with pepper spray, water cannons, rubber bullets, arrest and worse every single time they decide to take action. It can be difficult to engage in direct political activism with the threat of pepper spray, tear gas, tasers and bears (oh my) looming. The political action group The 350 Network, with branches in Eugene, Deschutes County and around the world, focuses specifically on climate change and climate justice. Earlier this month, 350 Eugene held a Non-Violent Direct Action Skills Training workshop to help prepare people for the reality of civil actions. Deb McGee and Patty Hine, co-founders of 350 Eugene, explain more about the workshop: “We teach practical skills for non-violent interaction. It was a very planned, very strategic, very cautious and effective planning session. We had a whole strand of workshops on security culture and legal, ‘know-your-rights’ kind of materials that the Civil Liberties Defense Center here in Eugene brought by way of their attorney. There was a Jungian psychoanalyst who put on emotional workshops which dealt with trauma and resilience. There were art, photography and media workshops about creating protest art that one of our local hip-hop artists put on. There were about 150-200 participants.” Whatever your cause, organization is key. “To organize something, you want to know exactly what you’re about and develop your own niche and where you fit in,” say McGee and Hine. “Of course, we’re going to advocate for a non-violent approach because if you try violence you’re going to wind up with a violent regime, for reasons of moral and ethical considerations, but because it’s also what’s effective.” Your level of participation is always your call. Never accept risks without full understanding of the

consequences. Diane Hodiak of 350 Deschutes explains: “I think when people contact an organization experienced in actions of all kinds, they have a choice of how to participate in a way that is best for them There is a continuum that encourages people to engage at whatever level they choose. They can engage by writing letters of support for issues or laws. They can use their skills to educate or influence others. They can march with their family in a peaceful, fun setting. They can engage in peaceful, nonviolent civil disobedience, while accepting the risks that these actions entail.” Some of the tips I’ve picked up from friends over the years, whether for means of civil disobedience or marching, are fairly simple. Make sure you’re carrying valid photo identification. Enable the passcode function on your phone so police can’t open it. Keep the number of the National Lawyers Guild on your person. All good places to start.

In times of political unrest, when you see the country you love slipping further away from what you recognize, it can be hard not to feel scared and alone. McGee and Hine have the perfect advice for those feeling that sense of isolation: “I would have to quote Kathleen Dean Moore, a professor at Oregon State University who is a philosopher and climate activist. She says ‘If you’re feeling isolated, depressed and alone: stop being one person.’ You’re not alone. So start joining with other people. The fact is we’re going to solve the climate problem and other social problems together in a community of caring individuals.” This is not a drill, people. Issues of climate change and social, political and economic justice require your participation. To get involved, contact or the Central Oregon Social Justice Center at for more information.  SW

Paul Dewey

The “kid from Kansas” continues his tireless quest to preserve the local environment


n the night of the presidential election, Paul Dewey admits he was deeply saddened and concerned about how the results would affect the world. The next morning, he responded the same way he has for more than 30 years — by going to work to protect the local environment. Dewey is the executive director of Central Oregon LandWatch, a small but powerful local environmental nonprofit he founded in 1986. The organization’s five staff members are involved in more than 20 land use applications and state and federal land use cases, as well as Bend’s urban growth boundary planning process. “It’s a lot of work,” Dewey admits. But rather than feeling overwhelmed by the challenges ahead, he says, “I’m still hopeful. If I weren’t, I couldn’t keep doing this.” To understand Dewey’s passion for the natural world, you have to go back to his upbringing in Garden City, a small town in western Kansas. Unlike many nature lovers, he didn’t grow up playing in forests and fields; it was the opposite experience that seems to have stuck with him. “I grew up in a place with no mountains, no forests and a river with next to no water in it,” he says. Each summer there was one brief escape—a family vacation to a cabin in the Spanish Peaks area of southeast Colorado. He says, “I was so attracted to those forests, I never wanted to leave.” Fast-forward to college in Kansas,

an influential stint abroad on a Rotary Club scholarship and law school at the University of Virginia, and Dewey found himself in Oregon in 1978, clerking for Judge Berkley Lent of the Oregon Supreme Court and traveling all over the state. “Can you imagine?” he says. “To a kid from Kansas, it was just amazing. The ocean! And all these different forests, from spruce to juniper.” After his clerkship, Dewey worked as a corporate lawyer, but by 1983, he had stopped practicing law and moved to Sisters to be a caretaker at a horse ranch. Then one day a neighbor asked him to testify in Salem against a project to pipe Whychus Creek for a hydrology project. It turned out that wasn’t the only threat to the creek; the U.S. Forest Service also planned to clear-cut old-growth and other trees right up to the water’s edge. Dewey recalled digging out his suit and putting on his tie for the first time in months. He filed an appeal of the timber sale, and when the Forest Service ranger suggested Dewey was the only one who cared about the trees and health of the creek, Dewey proved him wrong by gathering endorsements of his appeal from everyone from the Sisters Chamber of Commerce to local horse riding groups. The timber sale was stopped, and the experience led to the formation






“The whole idea of public lands is not just that the current public gets to use and enjoy it. It’s our obligation to hold it in trust for future generations.” — PAUL DEWEY

in 1986 of LandWatch, which ever since has been committed to taking legal action supported through collaborations among diverse stakeholders. Dewey says, “Often the legal process is what gets you a seat at the table, but my goal is not to litigate; it’s to find solutions.” Over the years, those solutions have included creating environmental protections of Whychus Creek and the Metolius River basin, preventing condominium development on the ridges of Shevlin Park, and preserving deer and elk winter range. Much of LandWatch’s work relates to protecting public lands—a cause Dewey believes is fundamental to American values. “The whole idea of public lands is not just that the current public gets to use and enjoy it. It’s our obligation to hold it in trust for future generations,” he says. Recently LandWatch has taken on another controversial issue, as a key player in limiting sprawl as part of Bend’s urban growth boundary planning process. “To the extent Bend doesn’t grow up, it will grow out onto

deer winter range, into forests and onto farms,” Dewey says, adding that it’s vital to “make Bend more attractive and livable, with a mix of affordable housing options and walkable neighborhoods and amenities.” Especially after the recent election, Dewey acknowledges that it can be difficult to remain hopeful and keep championing environmental causes. “But,” he adds, “if you just go out to these places like Shevlin Park, if you walk into one of our forests, there’s just no question. We have to keep fighting.” As for the near future, Dewey encourages citizens to remain engaged and vigilant: “If ever there’s a reason given for doing something that just lines the pockets of the person proposing it, without regard to the environment, that should send up huge red flags.” There’s more at Read more online about how Dewey helped stop one of the largest timber thefts in Oregon history, and what he sees as keys to success in upcoming environmental battles.  SW

The Tomorrow Show: Activism can actually be funny! You can’t stop Donald Trump from occupying the White House (yet). Betsy DeVos? Hired. Kellyanne Conway? Please. Too late for all that. But luckily, no one’s outlawed laughter. Yet. And parody’s still thriving. Who do we thank for this good fortune? You might want to start with cartoonist Dan Perkins, who writes under the name Tom Tomorrow when producing “This Modern World,” the blisteringly satirical comic strip seen weekly in the Source. We asked Perkins, a 2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist, about art and activism in the modern world:

Source Weekly: To what extent do you think artists like yourself can shape and/or influence the political dialogue? Dan Perkins: Individually, not at all, but collectively, I think humorists and satirists can have a huge impact in the years ahead. It’s clear that Trump has an incredibly thin skin, and this stuff can get to him in aggregate. Every cartoon that portrays him as a baby, or shows (Steve) Bannon running the Oval, or whatever—they’re all drops of water, but they all add up, and you just know he hates every bit of it.

SW: Are you truly hoping to inspire your readers to get more involved politically? If so, how? DP: Political involvement can sound intimidating to people who haven’t felt the need to engage previously, but it can be as simple as calling your representatives, or showing up at a protest march along with your friends and neighbors, or whatever else. People are inundated with the awfulness of the current situation, and hopefully that motivates them to get on the phone or out in the streets. My cartoon is just one element in the mix right now, but if I contribute to that in some small way, that’s fantastic. SW

Making food activism a part of your playbook By Jared Rasic 29 VOLUME 21  ISSUE 07  /  February 16, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY


hen it comes down to it, nearly every daily choice you make can be a chance to impact the world—including choosing the food you put on your plate. How we choose to eat can be an activist act in 2017, if you rely less on the Walmart and more on the farmers market or your own garden. If the president goes through with his plan to tax Mexican imports by 20 percent, (considering that our Southern neighbors are responsible for nearly 70 percent of our vegetable imports and over 40 percent of our fruit imports), expect the price on perishables like avocados and tomatoes to skyrocket. But before you get scared about the future of your produce supply, consider this: Everything humans need to survive can—and should—be sourced from the local environment, say local permaculture experts. Internationally recognized permaculture educator, designer and speaker Marisha Auerbach says: “Permaculture is a design system that responds to the unique local environment and culture of each place.” Colin Doyle, education and events director of Lost Valley Education Center, a permaculture farm in Dexter, Oregon, concurs: “Permaculture is a way of working with the forces of the natural world and not against them to be of benefit to our own human needs.” We spend so much of our lives trying to make our mark on the world and fit things to our own perception, that the idea of working with the natural world should seem more intuitive than it actually is. “The current political situation has shown us that there is a large gradient of what Americans think is best for the future,” says Auerbach. “I need to be an optimist to get out of bed in the morning. The practice of permaculture has developed with the intention to provide a positive way to respond to the various challenges, ecologically, economically and socially, that we currently face. I think some Americans will respond to the current situation by becoming more connected with their food. Others will become less connected as they fall into despair or lack the information to know how to make healthy food choices.” Doyle thinks there might be more immediate threats than trade wars and food shortages. “Utter dependence on fossil fuels to feed much of the 7+ billion people on Earth is the looming threat that few seem to talk about,” says Doyle. “We are VASTLY overpopulated, and the other shoe is going to drop—I’m impressed it hasn’t in any considerable way yet. I see a

confluence of factors running short soon: fresh water, oil, food, nuclear restraint and stable currency. It’s hard to predict which will falter first and which will follow, but local supply of life needs is a very resilient position to put oneself in now, while it’s still easy and we aren’t dependent on it, and therefore can afford to experiment and make mistakes. This is the calm before the storm, and we should seize the opportunity.” Seizing that opportunity by shifting into a system as multi-layered (pun intended) as permaculture can be intimidating, but far from impossible. “One good first step is getting your hands in the dirt in whatever way you can, not just to grow food, but for your psychological health too,” says Doyle. “Help someone with their garden, then start your own, then convert your lawn to food (instead of a resource drain). This is in the usual application of organic gardening, but permaculture goes far beyond that. As Bill Mollison said, ‘Permaculture is a revolution disguised as organic gardening.’ It can be applied to any human system, from local currency to interpersonal conflict to teaching math. Going deeper still, adopting the cooperative lens on the world that permaculture offers changes worldviews.” Growing your own food in C. O. In Central Oregon, there are specific challenges to the permaculture way of living. Auerbach, who lives on an urban farm in Portland and specializes

in neighborhood-scale food production, explains: “In a dry land environment, like Bend, excessive irrigation can cause our soils to become saline. It is important to conserve water in this sort of a climate. By choosing locally adapted varieties of vegetables and fruits, we are able to grow things that have been trained over the years to do well in local conditions. Organic food is fertilized with compost or manure, which enriches the water storage capacity of the soil, so plants need less water. Not only this, but compost prevents organic waste from ending up in the landfill, which creates methane gas.” Permaculture design isn’t just about our food or our gardens, but the way we exist day-to-day long into the future. “Each day, we design our lives,” says Auerbach. “We live in homes and cities that were designed by someone. We seek to design human habitats that are based in good stewardship of local resources. As I have studied permaculture and been fortunate to travel, I find it amazing to learn about how nature meets human needs in unique ways in each climate. In permaculture design, we base our decisions on caring for the earth and the people; this leads to long-term stewardship. Permaculture design provides a framework for learning how to read the landscape, tend to water, care for the soil, grow food, build healthy homes, invest sustainably, build community and develop right livelihood in a way that supports humans living indefinitely on this planet into the future.”  SW

Boneyard’s Busy Winter

New debuts across California and the world

31 VOLUME 21  ISSUE 07  /  February 16, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

by Kevin Gifford

Tony Lawrence left, chats with a co-worker during Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp event earlier this month as they worked out the pilot batch for the beer to be included in the Beer Camp Across the World case set.


oneyard Beer, the standard-bearer for good IPA across the mighty state of Oregon, has—in its own words—been “going event-crazy” for the whole month of February. The results are putting the hometown brewer on the map, not just across the Pacific Northwest, but also allowing the brand to quite literally brush shoulders with the world’s best. To begin with, Boneyard is joining locals such as GoodLife and Silver Moon and plunging into distributing their product in Northern California. They’ve teamed up with Mindful Distributors to produce a regular supply of RPM and the gang to places across the San Francisco Bay Area, including Beer Revolution in Hayward, the IBU Taproom & Bottle Shop in Milpitas, and Toronado, the bar in San Fran’s Lower Haight notorious for leading the local beer scene since the 1980s, featuring bartenders who take a “Soup Nazi”-style approach to the job. (A basic primer: Know your order before you go up to the bar, don’t ask “What’s the lightest thing you have,” and bring cash.) Boneyard is holding launch events all across the Bay Area in February, but that’s not all they’ve been up to. They recently collaborated with Barley Brown’s in Baker City to produce Allocation IIPA Part Deux, a citrusy blend of Amarillo, Citra, Cascade and

Manderina hops. This debuted at the Loyal Legion in Portland, which put 10 of each brewery’s offerings on tap for the occasion. There’s another collaboration in the works, however, that’s rather larger in scale. Boneyard has been invited to participate in Beer Camp Across the World, a case of beer featuring 12 beers made by 12 breweries, in collaboration with Sierra Nevada Brewing. This marks the third year the Chico-based brewery has released a mega-collaboration pack, and for this one, they’ve teamed up with six outfits from the US and six from around the world. Notable participants in this box, due out this summer, include Garage Project of New Zealand, producing a porter smoked with indigenous wood; Mikkeller of Denmark, making a beer themed after Thai iced tea; and Tree House Brewing, the beer-nerd darlings of central Massachusetts, producing a low-key IPA that’s billed as “East meets West.” What is Boneyard’s contribution to the case? No prizes for guessing this: It’s a west coast-style double IPA, set to clock in at around 8.5 percent alcohol by volume. “I think it came out darn good,” Boneyard head Tony Lawrence says. “I can’t wait to make a couple of twists and tweaks. Calculator, pen, piece of paper, and we’ll get this done.”  SW

Maybe a Superhero Will Save Us! With Lego Batman, not quite everything is awesome By Jared Rasic


33 VOLUME 21  ISSUE 07  /  February 16, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

ego Batman might not be the hero we need, but he’s the hero we deserve. In a city where super villains run rampant and the police and regular citizens are helpless to stop them, we need a masked vigilante to step up and protect us. I’m not talking about Bernie Sanders and Washington, D.C., I’m talking about Batman and that more fictional hellhole known as Gotham City. Will Arnett’s Batman was one of the breakout characters of 2014’s surprisingly awesome “The Lego Movie,” so it was only a matter of time until he got his very own animated spin-off adventure. The Lego Universe’s version of Batman is dark, isolated and mean, keeping his heart walled off from the rest of the DC superheroes and villains. Part of the reason for this is Batman’s (and Bruce Wayne’s) back story of watching his family get gunned down during a mugging gone wrong, but he also has the combined pop culture history of every Batman story ever told. This Batman has the backstory of Christian Bale, Michael Keaton, Adam West, Kevin Conroy and over 70 years of comic books. He’s been through it all, but the loss of his parents has kept him from making any lasting relationships. Even the Joker (a perfectly cast Zach Galifianakis) just wants Batman to admit that he’s is the caped crusader’s nemesis and #1 most important villain. Yet Batman is so afraid of commitment and attachment that he can’t even tell the Joker that he hates him. All he can do is say that he likes to “fight around” with as many different

Sometimes we need our heroes small, with sharp edges.

villains as he can. “The Lego Batman Movie” is densely packed with jokes, excellent voice acting from some of the funniest people on the planet and eye-popping visuals, but the structure and story become exhausting and repetitive by the finale. Don’t get me wrong, the film is a ton of fun and will take a dozen viewings before all the Easter Eggs can be unpacked, but by the fourth or fifth time Batman can’t bring himself to apologize or say something kind to anyone, it becomes a bit unbearable. Every animated film usually has some BIG MESSAGE it tries to

impart to the youth in the audience. For example, “Zootopia” found subtle and lovely ways to layer the message that we don’t need to fear what is different from us. “The Lego Batman Movie” is laser focused on the idea of family and the idea that every single thing we try in life will be easier if you care enough to let people help you. This is a great message and an admirable one to try to impart, but the film’s ham-fisted script hits those thematic ideas over the head so many times that, even with all the wildly entertaining jokes and flashing lights, I still found myself

becoming bored. As a pretty big fan of “The Lego Movie,” this one ended up being a bit of a disappointment, but our heroes don’t always deliver perfection. Sometimes they show up a little late, hung over from the night before and just want to make it home in time to catch a “Seinfeld” rerun. That’s OK. Our heroes are people too. SW

The Art of Raising a Ruckus Get yourself some popcorn and sit down with these movies with a message By Jared Rasic

35 VOLUME 21  ISSUE 07  /  February 16, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

I’ve always believed that movies could change the world, which is part of the reason why I can never be cynical about them. Sure, the motion picture industry is a business and a vast majority of films are calibrated to achieve a maximum profit, but sometimes, genuine art sneaks through the studio notes and the focus groups. Art can help us fight against a world in which we feel powerless; it can give us empathy with entire groups of people for which we have no frame of reference. These movies don’t just challenge popular thinking, but show us that we all have the tools to fight and make the world something a little better for everyone.

Left Damien Echols stands on death row in “West of Memphis.” At right is, the all-too-recognizable fascist regime in “V for Vendetta.”

“V for Vendetta” (2005) Dir. James McTeigue

“Fahrenheit 451” (1966) Dir. Francois Truffaut

“West of Memphis” (2012) Dir. Amy Berg

“The Visitor” (2007) Dir. Tom McCarthy

“People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.” Great Britain has become a fascist state and a masked vigilante conducts guerrilla warfare on a massive scale. The film is based on a comic book that was released in the late 1980s, but has somehow only become more relevant with each passing year. Simultaneously a “fun” super hero movie and a powerful look at how easily a government can overrun its citizenry.

Based on the revolutionary novel by Ray Bradbury, “Fahrenheit 451” tells the story of a firefighter tasked with burning books outlawed by a government fearful of independent thought from its citizens. The important lesson to take from the book—or film—is that any strong society is built on questioning what is being fed to us, both in the news and from our government.

This documentary owes a huge debt to the “Paradise Lost” trilogy, beautifully summarizing all three films into one. “West of Memphis” looks at the story of Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Misskelley, three Arkansas teenagers who were wrongly imprisoned for the murder of three young boys. Watching the criminal justice system fail the innocent so completely is enraging, but also bone-chilling. The killer is still out there and because the Arkansas court system is so afraid of admitting its incompetence, the perpetrator may never be found or even hunted.

A sad, lonely and isolated man comes home after a long time away to find his apartment has been sublet to Syrian-Senegalese immigrants. “The Visitor” is a beautiful and heartfelt look at empathy and human connection in a time where isolating one’s self is easier than ever. There are so many more films to talk about, such as the disturbingly prophetic “Bob Roberts,” the beautifully empathetic “Cameraperson” or the haunting “The Handmaid’s Tale,” but searching for the stories that are important to you is what makes cinema an art form. There will be a film that speaks directly to what puts the fire in your belly—you just have to reach out and find it.  SW

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.

ELLE: A woman turns the tables on her rapist in ways both unpredictable and disturbing. Director Paul Verhoeven always makes challenging and disturbing films, but never as a provocateur. He searches for truth in the unlikeliest of places and, while sometimes he fails (“Showgirls”), his films always generate a powerful discussion. Sisters Movie House FIFTY SHADES DARKER: We know these

movies are bad, right? I mean, the books are terrible because of the writing, but the movies are even worse because the director is bored, the actors seem embarrassed and the writer’s understanding of a sub/dom relationship is ignorant at best and dangerous at worst.

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.

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.

20/40/60: Do Like the Canadians Do The Source’s crack team tries curling By Wyatt Gaines, Nicole Vulcan and Richard Sitts

Wyatt Gaines, 20-something

"It's fun, it's family oriented, and you don't have to be a jock to play."

Nicole Vulcan, almost 40-something

— BARB LYONS Because we were most certainly dummies before we stepped onto the ice, here’s a brief description of the game, courtesy of “Curling for Dummies.” “Curling is a sport in which two teams of four players each slide 40-pound granite rocks (also called stones) down a sheet of ice toward a target at the other end. Each team tries to get more of its stones closer to the center of the target than the other team.” If you’re one of those Benditos who spends time lobbing bocce balls in the summer, then you’ll probably catch right on. One big difference (besides the temperature) is that in curling, the person sliding the rock is aided by sweepers, who urgently “sweep” the ice in front of the rock to help it travel farther to reach the target. With that, here’s our take on curling, from a three-generation perspective.

37 VOLUME 21  ISSUE 07  /  February 16, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY


t was just a few weeks ago when members of the Bend Curling Club added a new listing to our calendar, looking to boost the numbers for their club, which meets several times a week at The Pavilion in Bend. Since no one has yet proposed building a wall between us and Canada, we thought it was only fitting that we give this sport—with origins in Scotland, but one well-loved by our Canuck friends to the north—a try. (We need all the allies we can muster!) Turns out, the sport is pretty popular here in Central Oregon, too. According to members of the Bend Curling Club, Bend Park and Recreation’s Adult Curling sessions fill up extremely fast, so the Bend Curling Club was formed to fill the gap for curlers.

Surprisingly enough, I really enjoyed curling! It combined the pace and technique one utilizes in billiards and darts, but takes place in a new environment and requires physicality and teamwork in a way that these bar games do not. As a person who has spent next to zero time on an ice rink, just being on the rink is cool in itself. Bright lights, crisp air, shiny stones; all considered, it’s a very beautiful game. My biggest takeaway is a new appreciation for the sport. I’m looking forward to catching it in the coming Winter Olympics and impressing all my friends with my knowledge. Best part of curling: the lane you’re on is called a sheet—new meaning to “shooting the sheet!”

Having been longing for the leisurely days of summer, when bocce ball is the anchor to my day drinking, curling seemed to be a good wintertime stand-in. The basic tenets of the sport aren’t difficult to grasp, and the Saturday night club atmosphere is relaxed and all about having a good time. To me, Saturday night sports should be like that: fun, chill and not too competitive. Plus, there was good music playing. Bend Curling Club member Barb Lyons, who joined the club last year with her husband, seemed to agree. “It’s not age-dependent,” she said. “It’s been wonderful because neither one of us are skiers, and we wanted to do something in the wintertime that got us outside. It’s fun, it’s family oriented, and you don’t have to be a jock to play.” Nuff said, Barb, thanks! Richard Sitts, 60-something As my right leg pushed off of the “hack,” my left foot, on its “slider,” splayed outward, propelling me face-first into the ice and sending

the 40-pound stone careening out of control into the team of curlers next to us, undercutting one of them, who smacked down hard on the rock-hard glaze. OK, that didn’t really happen. But with my subpar sense of balance, it very well could have, had I tried the traditional method of curling. While my more able-bodied colleagues, Nicole and Wyatt, jumped right in with considerable success, I wimped out and used the extender pole (optional, but illegal in competition) to launch my stone down the ice. This made it seem like shuffleboard on ice and it felt a little bit like cheating. I can’t recall ever hanging out for two hours straight on a sheet of ice, let alone having so much fun in the process. I felt the camaraderie shared by the members of the

Bend Curling Club. Richard Peterson was a great instructor of the sport and made the three of us curling virgins feel welcome. I would definitely be up for giving curling another try and perhaps working up to that traditional sliding delivery.

Drop Some Knowledge for Science — Take part in the Greater Backyard Bird Count By Jim Anderson 39 VOLUME 21  ISSUE 07  /  February 16, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY


elieve it or not, citizen scientists are on a roll. The National Audubon Society, in its quest to learn more about birds around our homes, has asked John Q. Public to help it understand what’s going on among metropolitan bird populations by taking part in the the Greater Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). Each year, on Feb. 17 and through President’s Day weekend, Audubon, Cornell and Project Feederwatch— with help from Wild Birds Unlimited—get their heads together and give our backyard birds a closer look. This activity would be impossible without the help of millions of birdlovers who report the goings-on of the birds they feed. The photo below, taken by Karl Bittler, Sisters resident and retired head of the Sisters School Maintenance crew, is an outstanding example of what the GBBC is all about. He has documented information on predation of our backyard birds, which is vital to understanding what impacts small bird populations. Sure, some people find such interaction between predator and prey somewhat distasteful, but hey, that’s a real part of the world of nature; its real-time checks and balances in a healthy ecosystem. Bittler is aware of the visits of that smallest member of the bird-eating hawks (the Accipiters), remaining alert to the Sharpies’ visits, and like a good scientist, has recorded what was going on. Another event occurred that Bittler and the hawk didn’t expect; just about the time the hawk thought the bird was all hers, a raven came down and took it away from her, and Bittler watched it happen… The Great Backyard Bird Count begins Friday and will go through President’s Day weekend. The roots

of GBBC are found in Project Feederwatch and are meant to focus on birds coming to backyard habitats— bird feeders, water features and the like. The GBBC database is now embedded in the larger eBird database. Over the GBBC weekend, any and all data will be included in the count, whether it’s from folks participating in GBBC, or those out birding miles and miles away from their backyard. Several birders have now taken to making the GBBC weekend completely motorless. Looking out your kitchen window, sitting on your back porch swing, or walking the neighborhood sharing your neighbor’s

backyard feeder activity are all motorless activities—but so is bicycling and watching backyard feeder activity. However, it would probably be a good idea to ask before you start watching birds with your binocs in someone else’s backyard… The GBBC is a free, fun, and an easy event to take part in that engages wannabe birders of all ages or birding experts in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations, like Bittler’s action photo above, and the Nuthatches drinking in Abbot Shindler’s backyard water feature above. Participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes—or as long as they wish—on one or more days of the four-day event and report their sightings online at birdcount. org. Each checklist submitted during the GBBC helps researchers at Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society learn more about how our metropolitan birds are doing, and how to help them by protecting the environment we all share. Last year, more than 160,000 participants submitted their bird observations online, creating the largest instantaneous snapshot of global bird populations ever recorded anywhere in the world. Bird populations are always shifting and changing; for example, 2014 GBBC data highlighted a large eruption of Snowy Owls across the

northeastern, mid-Atlantic and Great Lakes areas of the United States. The data also showed the effects warm weather patterns are having on bird movement around the country. For more on the results of the 2016 GBBC, take a look at the GBBC Summary, and be sure to check out some of the images in the 2016 GBBC Photo Contest Gallery. Gary Langham, chief scientist of Audubon puts it this way: “This count is so (much) fun because anyone can take part —we all learn and watch birds together—whether you are an expert, novice, or feeder-watcher. I like to invite new birders to join me and share the experience. Get involved, invite your friends, and see how your favorite spot stacks up.” SW

In contrast to Bend, the Redmond median single family home price declined from $266,000 in December to $258,000 for January, with price per square foot also declining from $153 in December to $151 in January. Inventory levels remain under the two-month mark in both Bend and Redmond, which contributes to the continued upward pressure on prices. A six-month supply is considered a healthy inventory level in industry literature. Source:

ADVICE GODDESS You Deserve A Breakup Today

I really appreciated your recent column about people who go through with getting married when they know deep down that they’re making a mistake. I’m reminded of the common societal admonishment against being a “quitter.” There’s this notion that you’re some kind of loser if you quit anything — even when logic tells you that you should bow out. This sort of absurd anti-logic is used (with the “marriage takes work” notion) to intimidate people into remaining in marriages that are total failures, which prolongs everyone’s suffering. —Been There



Ideally, “till death do us part” doesn’t lead to daydreams involving a shovel and a tarp. Granted, there are people in miserable marriages who stay together — sometimes because they believe that a man with horns and a tail would end up chasing them around with a flaming pitchfork if they split up and married somebody else. Others, in humdrum but not ugly or toxic marriages, stay together — admirably — for their kids’ sake. But many unhappy couples — with no pitter-pattering little feet but the schnauzer’s — don’t split up or are seriously slow to do it out of this notion that quitting is for losers. I’m not suggesting that couples should scurry off to divorce court at the first sight of a cloud on the marital horizon. But there’s a cost-benefit analysis to be done. Couples need to consider whether it’s actually possible to work to make their marriage succeed or whether that would take their being two totally different and actually compatible people. As for what “succeeding” in marriage means, let’s be honest: In modern society, we have a luxury we never did before —

marrying for love and happiness. We then expect that these will continue to some reasonable (or sometimes unreasonable) degree. In previous centuries, sometimes you lucked out and got love in the marital package. But, as marriage historian Stephanie Coontz points out, for “thousands of years” — until the late 18th century — “marriage was more about property and politics than personal satisfaction.” Two people would get “betrothed” to each other as a way of brokering peace between nations or getting the money to keep land in the family (“marriage is between a man and a potato farm”). These days, however, if continents or children won’t be ravaged by a couple’s breaking up, maybe there’s no reason to be answering the question “Grandma, how’d you and Grandpa make it work?” with “We didn’t. I just stayed till he died.” Even so, human psychology doesn’t make it easy to extricate ourselves. Research by psychologist Elliot Aronson finds that we are prone to “self-justification” — believing whatever puts us in the best light. In other words, we are natural-born spin doctors, driven to protect both our ego and our public persona — to the point where our knee-jerk response when we fail at something is pretending we haven’t, to ourselves and everybody else. There is a psychological tool you can use to combat this. It’s “self-compassion” — basically, when you’re going through a hard time, treating yourself as kindly as you’d treat someone else who’s struggling. Psychologist Kristin Neff, who studies self-compassion, finds that an essential element of this is seeing your “common humanity” — meaning viewing yourself as part of a whole population of flawed, fallible humans. ...continued

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): What would your best mother do in a situation like this? Please note that I’m not asking, “What would your mother do?” I’m not suggesting you call on the counsel of your actual mother. When I use the term “your best mother,” I’m referring to the archetype of your perfect mother. Imagine a wise older woman who understands you telepathically, loves you unconditionally, and wants you to live your life according to your own inner necessity, not hers or anyone else’s. Visualize her. Call on her. Seek her blessings. ARIES (March 21-April 19): My astrological radar suggests there’s a space-time anomaly looming just ahead of you. Is it a fun and exotic limbo where the rules are flexible and everything’s an experiment? That might be cool. Or is it more like an alien labyrinth where nothing is as it seems, you can hear howling in the distance, and you barely recognize yourself? That might be weird. What do you think? Is it worth the gamble? If so, full speed ahead. If not, I suggest a course correction.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone on asked readers to respond to the question, “What is the most liberating thought you’ve ever had?” Among the replies were the following six: 1. “If new evidence presents itself, it’s okay to change my beliefs.” 2. “I get to choose who’s in my life and who isn’t.” 3. “I am not my history.” 4. “You can’t change something that has already happened, so stop worrying about it.” 5. “I am not, nor will I ever be, conventionally beautiful.” 6. “I don’t have to respond to people when they say stupid s—- to me.” I hope these testimonies inspire you to come up with several of your own, Taurus. It’s a perfect time to formulate liberating intentions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It has been a while since I told you that I love you. So I’m doing it now. I LOVE YOU. More than you could ever imagine. And that’s why I continue to offer these horoscopes to you free of charge, with no strings attached. That’s why I work so hard to be a playful therapist and an edgy mentor for you. That’s why I am so tenacious in my efforts to serve you as a feminist father figure and a kindly devil’s advocate and a sacred cheerleader. Again, I don’t expect anything in return from you. But if you would like to express your appreciation, you could do so by offering a similar type of well-crafted care to people in your own sphere. Now would be an excellent time to give such gifts. CANCER (June 21-July 22): “I like the word ‘bewilderment’ because it has both ‘be’ and ‘wild’ in it,” says poet Peter Gizzi. I propose that you go even further, Cancerian: Express a fondness for the actual experience of bewilderment as well as the word. In fact, be willing to not just tolerate, but actually embrace the fuzzy blessings of bewilderment. In the coming weeks, that’s your ticket to being wild in the healthiest (and wealthiest) ways. As you wander innocently through the perplexing mysteries that make themselves available, you’ll be inspired to escape formalities and needless rules that have kept you overly tame. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Are you familiar with psychologist Carl Jung’s concept of the shadow? It’s the unflattering or uncomfortable part of you that you would prefer to ignore or suppress. It’s the source of behavior about which you later say, “I wasn’t acting like myself.” Jungians say that the shadow hounds you and wounds you to the degree that you refuse to deal with it. But if you negotiate with it, it leads you to beautiful surprises. It prods you to uncover riches you’ve hidden from yourself. I mention this, Leo, because any shadow work you do in the coming weeks could generate rather spec-

tacular breakthroughs.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You could make a vow like this: “Between now and April 15, I will be relentless in getting my needs met. I will harbor a steely resolve to call on every ploy necessary to ensure that my deepest requirements are not just gratified, but satiated to the max. I will be a dogged and ferocious seeker of absolute fulfillment.” If you want to swear an oath like that, Virgo, I understand. But I hope you will try a softer approach — more like the following: “Between now and April 15, I will be imaginative and ingenious in getting my needs met. I will have fun calling on every trick necessary to ensure that my deepest requirements are playfully addressed. I will be a sweet seeker of unpredictable fulfillment.”


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): How would Buddha ask for a raise or promotion? How would Jesus tinker with his career plans as he took into consideration large-scale shifts in the economy? How would Confucius try to infuse new approaches and ideas into the status quo of his work environment? Ruminate deeply on these matters, dear Libra. Your yearning to be more satisfyingly employed may soon be rewarded — especially if you infuse your ambitions with holy insight. How would Joan of Arc break through the glass ceiling? How would Harriet Tubman deal with the inefficiencies caused by excess testosterone? How would Hildegard of Bingen seek more emotional richness on the job?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I suspect you would benefit from acquiring a new bedroom name, my dear. But should I be the one to give it to you? I’m not sure. Maybe you could invite a practical dreamer you adore to provide you with this crazy sweet new moniker. If there is no such person to do the job (although given the current astrological omens, I bet there is), I’ll offer the following array of amorous aliases for you to choose from: Wild Face . . . Kiss Genius . . . Thrill Witch . . . Freaky Nectar . . . Boink Master . . . Lust Moxie . . . Pearly Thunder . . . Peach Licker . . . Painkiller . . . Silky Bliss . . . Slippery Diver . . . Swoon Craver.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Soon I’ll be off on my first vacation in 18 months. At first glance it might seem odd for an astrologer like myself to have selected two Sagittarians to be my housesitters. Members of your sign are reputed to be among the least home-nurturing people in the zodiac. But I’m confident that by the time I return, raccoons won’t be living in my kitchen, nor will my plants be dead or my snailmail stolen or my TV broken. The current astrological omens suggest that most of you Centaurs, at least for the foreseeable future, will display an uncommon aptitude for the domestic arts.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The near future will be mutable, whimsical, and fluky. It’ll be serendipitous, mercurial, and extemporaneous. You should expect happy accidents and lucky breaks. Your ability to improvise will be quite valuable. Do you believe in lucky numbers? Even if you don’t, yours will be 333. Your sacred password will be “quirky plucky.” The cartoon characters with whom you will have most in common are Bugs Bunny and Roadrunner. The place where you’re most likely to encounter a crucial teaching is a threshold or thrift shop. Your colors of destiny will be flecked and dappled. (P.S.: I suspect that an as-yet-undiscovered talisman of power is crammed in a drawer full of junk.)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Treat your body like a sublime temple, please. And regard your imagination as a treasured sanctuary. Be very choosy about what you allow to enter in to both of those holy places. This strategy is always a wise idea, of course, but it’s especially so now, when you are extra sensitive to the influences you absorb. It’s crucial that you express maximum discernment as you determine which foods, drinks, drugs, images, sounds, and ideas are likely to foster your maximum well-being — and which aren’t. Be a masterful caretaker of your health and sanity.

Buying Cannabis - Past, Present and Future


Now Recreational Licensed

couple weekends ago I hosted a tour of cannabis dispensaries. The attendees ranged in age from 22 to 70+. Among the tour takers, some had never been to a dispensary and some had been to over three dozen. The older tour takers chatted with me about the wonder and majesty of being able to walk into a storefront and acquire a wide variety of cannabis and canna products. That led to tales exchanged of what it was like to buy weed “back in the day,” and what it might look like in the future. So for your consideration, here are two sets of facts, and one of predictions.

LOOK FOR IT ON MARCH 2ND The Source Weekly’s first ever supplement about all things cannabis! This special edition will touch on the ever expanding marijuana industry around the Central Oregon area and feature a local directory with all of your favorite dispensaries in the high desert. With in depth experiences about legal marijuana from the point of view of the growers, retailers and consumers as well as the latest updates on legislation, this informative issue is sure to elevate your mind.





Most of what you could get was imported and was nearly always heavily laden with seeds. Concentrates came in the form of imported hand rolled hash that arrived in bricks or balls. Edibles involved brownies from a box, to which someone added handfuls of leaf and, if lucky, crumbled buds directly into the pan. Your dealer/connection/guy would meet you after a series of calls made from pay phones using code, most having you arrive at their apartment or house. You may have been forced to expend precious time and energy indulging your host while they played you their new songs, or shared their deep contemplations on all matters. Others would come over to you, but you had to plan to clear your schedule: “Man, I’m running a half hour late” was universally understood to mean you would be waiting another two to three hours, minimum. You got what you got; good dealers had a few types to select from, but it was based mostly on price and bag appeal quality, not strain names. It came in plastic sandwich bags or small plastic film canisters (the precursor to the packaging we now use.) Organic wasn’t a thing, testing for potency/mold screenings were unheard of because any lab would call the police as soon as you showed them the flower. Volume got you a discount, and some would front you until payday.

FUTURE In the best-case scenario, the outdated, racist and insane prohibition is lifted, allowing for universal access. Revisions to the laws regarding state-to-state sales, access to banking and tax deductions, and the lifting of financial burdens placed upon growers results in lower costs to consumers. Large scale grow ops and new technologies allow the wholesale costs to drop to less than $1 per gram, making the $100 quarter pound a possibility. Years of cannabis research—unfettered by governmental interference— results in breakthrough products that rely as much on the terpenes as they do THC. Time release is perfected, so consumers can ingest products that provide precise effects at exact times throughout the day. Opioids are replaced by a new class of cannabis pain relievers. Smoking and dabbing are generally replaced by ultra efficient and compact portable vaporizers.

NOW In Oregon we have hundreds of dispensaries, with hundreds of products grown, processed and sold by growers, edible makers/extractors and budtenders who have a deep knowledge and passion for the plant. They can help you determine which products are best to support your intentions, be they for physical or mental relief. You can access menus of their offerings using apps on your phone, and some allow you to place your order for pick up. There are frequent buyer

discount cards and daily specials. Today in Central Oregon we have even seen the advent of home delivery services, with Bend’s Cannabend being the first to roll that out. Cannabis is tested to a standard more rigorous than most agricultural products. Prices can range from $100 to $700 an ounce, with quality not always being in line with the pricing. A breed of self proclaimed “cannasuers” (which needs to stop. Really, please... stop) will “pass” on a product simply because it was not grown under artificial lights, or has a lower THC percentage number than the one next to it. It’s now about the terpenes as much as the THC, and don’t forget CBD, or if you are trying to shed that winter weight, THCV. Tax is 20 percent on adult use purchases, 0 percent on medical purchases.
