Protesting an Apartment Complex is Energy Best Used Elsewhere

E WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / March 8, 2018 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

ven in Central Oregon, people become victims of human trafficking and intimate partner violence on a regular basis. Students at local schools pose credible shooting threats against their schools. Kids live in poverty. People remain homeless. But beyond the really heavy stuff, what’s sure to draw the ire and raise protest among locals? The prospect of easing the housing crisis in Bend with the construction of more apartments in the inner part of the city. As we reported in the online story, ”Proposed Apartment Building Draws Ire” on Feb. 27, at least a few neighbors in the River West neighborhood are concerned about the construction of a new apartment building on a currently-empty lot next to Bend Park and Recreation’s Pavilion. Among their concerns: parking and congestion, though it also smacks of NIMBYism. Seattle-based Evergreen Housing already has a track record of building attractive, much-needed housing in Bend, as evidenced by the construction of apartments on the east side of Pilot Butte. Since they’ve successfully housed hundreds of people in Bend through that project, we venture to stay they understand the ins and outs of what’s required of them in order to build housing in Bend. But really, we couldn’t say it better than a reader who commented on the story on our website: “Is the property zoned for apartments? Yes! Was the property for sale and available for ANYONE to purchase for $4.9M? Yes! Will the developer have to meet the requirements for ingress/ egress, density, height restrictions, parking and infrastructure improvements due any impact on the surrounding

area? Yes! “Why then, is this developer being harassed by a few NIMBY residents who do not understand zoning, market conditions and the economics and housing demand of a growing city? Maybe these neighboring residents fail to understand private property rights? This is not public property, and the developer must meet code and zoning requirements already in place on this vacant dirt. Unfortunately, appeasing the vocal minority is not one of the city’s requirements to build a large project. My money is on the developer who plunked down $5M on raw land, not a few emotional neighbors. If the neighbors prefer to control someone else’s investment, then they should have bought this land themselves. Oh, can’t afford it? Then sit down and mind your own business. “Who am I? While I do not have a horse in this race, call me a concerned citizen who supports the rights of PRIVATE PROPERTY... both mine and yours.” In addition to the fact that this piece of property in the center of town is indeed zoned for this type of development, there’s the larger issue of misdirected protest, which we mentioned before. How many times must Bendites hear that there’s a housing crisis in our city before we realize that increased housing inventory, even in our own “backyards” is a solution? Were residents in the River West neighborhood—some of whom also recently successfully spearheaded the restriction of outdoor shows in Bend— to put their energies into the more pressing issues named in the first paragraph here, we’d all be better off.

GUN CONTROL

WHY A GUN? The Second Amendment, of course, but the Second Amendment was written when indeed the citizens of this country had fought for their independence. And the gun of choice at the time was a musket. The Second Amendment has served its purpose and is no longer a reasonable element of our society to support.   Yes I know, for some of us it’s fun to own and shoot a gun, been there done that. However what do most of us want a gun for? Mostly to hunt, unfortunately for most of us that’s incredibly lame. Putting meat in the freezer while working a full time job might sound nice but really not a survival requirement. Yeah getting out in the woods is nice but killing for the fun of killing is sick. So who really benefits from the proliferation of all kinds of guns available to the populace, military weaponry included,? Bottom lines of course, starting with the NRA.   The word “available” is mostly the problem with our current situation with gun violence. Background checks, not so much. The complexity of effective background checks renders them basically ineffective. Why is it so hard to legislate reasonable laws to mollify this severe human fallacy?  The cause, special interests in politics starting with the NRA, their money that is, inhibits our elected

Candidate Trump stated since he carries a pistol, he would have shot the assailant in that nightclub multiple shooting. Now that he is President, and his powers have increased, he says he would have subdued the Florida shooter, even if unarmed. (He will soon add a cape to his usual business suit.) So obviously, his Secret Service protection detail is another example of wasteful government spending and should be eliminated immediately. In a related matter:   I assume the Congressional Office Building is provided with weapons prohibitions, armed security guards, metal detectors, etc.  (I could be wrong.) My proposal is the gun rights beliefs be physically as well as philosophically established—there will be two sections to the building: the Temporary Confiscations Section, which will continue the current security measures, and the Open Carry Section which will allow guns since an armed America is a Safer America, and occupants will be protected from armed Evildoers by random good guys with guns. Temporary Confiscations Section office holders will be pledged to vote for any increased gun control legislation, and Open Carry Section office holders will be pledged to fully protect the 2nd Amendment. As our President says, Let’s see what happens. —Ted Suen

INVESTIGATION INTO RUSSIAN ELECTION TAMPERING Dear President Trump, Here’s my analogy for your response to the Russia investigation. If you move into a house and someone says, “I think there’s a rat’s nest in your garage,” a reasonable person does not say “What rats?” alternating with “They’re not my rats.” A responsible person calls an exterminator and cooperates fully with the exterminator’s recommendations, before the rats move into the kitchen and run around on the table stealing your toast while you’re trying to eat breakfast. Anyone who responds with indifference or denial should expect people to assume they are comfortable sleeping with rats. Patriotically yours, —Carol Elwood

GROW

WOES The ongoing battle pits cannabis growers against rural property owners Will it mean tightening up restrictions on legal weed? By Christian Trejbal

I

n 2014, Oregon voters approved Measure 91 to legalize recreational marijuana, with 56 percent statewide support. Deschutes County was closer, at only 51.9 percent. Break that down even further and an urban-rural divide emerges. In Bend, Redmond and Sisters—the county’s three incorporated cities—55 percent supported legalization. In the unincorporated, rural parts of the county, 47 percent opposed legalization. Now rural neighbors say their worst fears have become reality. Each city sets its own rules for marijuana and the county sets rules for the remaining, mostly rural, areas. “The people in the cities want the marijuana, but they wanted it grown in the rural areas. The people in the rural areas who didn’t want it are feeling the impacts,” said Liz Lotochinski, a member of a newly formed group opposing marijuana operations in the rural county. The Sheriff’s take One of the most visible and strident crusaders against cannabis is Deschutes County Sherriff Shane Nelson. “My decision’s easy,” he said at a recent county work session on marijuana policy. “It’s always easy when you’re wearing a uniform. Marijuana is against federal law; so are marijuana grows. No state can legalize such a thing. It’s absolutely against the law and not allowed.” But Nelson has other issues with marijuana, too. He said cultivation threatens livability in the county and negatively affects property values. He

said residents are afraid to stand up to the industry, and his office has received complaints about statements made to “vulnerable citizens” who attend public meetings. “If our office is made aware of it, we will absolutely take care of business. There’s a general fear out there that if you speak your mind, you can expect some retaliation,” he said. “There needs to be no comments to any neighbors that are present at these meetings speaking their minds.” Industry representatives and growers have no business trying to reassure neighbors that everything will work out, according to Nelson. Efforts to squash free speech and productive dialogue between neighbors and marijuana growers aside, the sheriff has one clear message for the county, “I am worried. I see an opportunity to stop this here, and I would encourage those [cannabis production] applications to be denied. Neighbor concerns The sheriff is not the only person worried and afraid. Some county residents have formed Preserve Deschutes County to oppose marijuana farms. “Allowing marijuana grow operations in our rural neighborhoods is a threat to the community’s safety, property values, water stability and way of life,” its website states. “We see all sorts of interesting people out in the neighborhood, and it gives us concern,” said Sam Davis, a member of the group who lives near a rural cannabis grow. “The security they should have to protect it from the public, and the public from it, isn’t there.” Lotochinski, also part of Preserve Deschutes County, said: “Individual neighbors don’t want to complain.” She noted that “no other crop requires posted ‘No Trespassing’ signs and cameras.” The state requires 24-hour surveillance of marijuana production sites. Security and safety aren’t neighbors’ only concerns, though. They also talk about the effects on quality of life and the environment. They point to lights shining at night, unpleasant odors, noise and water disruption. Dave Fox, who lives in Alfalfa, said six neighbors have had to drill their wells deeper since a large cannabis grow opened nearby about a year ago. Although a direct link is difficult to prove, he said there hadn’t been that many drills in the previous decade. Opponents of rural grows also wonder why the state and county are allowing more cannabis production when U.S. Attorney for Oregon Billy Williams claims the state is overproducing by a large margin and shipping marijuana to other states illegally. “We already have an overabundance of marijuana. Do we need one more grow?” Lotochinski asked. “Maybe we should freeze grows at this point,” Davis added. Fox and many other opponents say “industrial” cannabis operations are incompatible with rural, agricultural

communities. They run afoul of the spirit, if not the letter, of Oregon’s land-use law. “The growers want to use land that has been used for farming and livestock for something that doesn’t need land,” Fox said. “They don’t need dirt. They just need space and water.” A War on Weed? The industry organizes Clifton Cannabis Law, a Bend law firm specializing in supporting the marijuana industry, calls Sheriff Nelson’s approach to the industry a “war on the weed business.” Jennifer Clifton, founder of the firm, is also a founding member of a new industry group called Celebrate Cannabis. “The economic base of our region is constantly evolving from its roots in timber to real estate development to health care to craft beer to tech to outdoor recreation to food and beverage,” Clifton said. “Now it’s time for legal cannabis to finally have a seat at the table in Central Oregon when it comes to both perceptions and regulations that affect our industry.” Celebrate Cannabis will advocate for the industry and focus on education efforts to support responsible and legal use, and cultivation. County officials and industry representatives point out that county rules already address most neighbor concerns. For example, the county requires growers to install air ventilation systems that prevent odors from escaping and ensure that grow lights aren’t visible outside from 7 pm to 7 am. The state mandates background checks on all employees. “A lot of those fears are based in a little bit of fantasy and a little bit of general disdain for what they perceive the marijuana culture to be,” said Jeremy Dickman, an attorney with Clifton Cannabis Law. He points out that growers make a significant financial investment, sometimes millions of dollars, and aren’t going to risk it over minor things. “We’re not talking about the high school weed dealer setting up shop next door and inviting his friends from jail to help run it.” Former Oregon First Lady Cylvia Hayes is working with marijuana growers to minimize their environmental impact. She acknowledged that some unscrupulous growers have illegally tapped into waterways, but said there are better ways to do things. “Cannabis done well doesn’t have to be resource consumptive like that,” Hayes said. “There are lots of vendors in the cannabis industry who are doing super responsible grows.” Hayes added that sound environmental practices aren’t just about water. With Central Oregon’s abundant sunshine and the requirement that all grows be indoors, solar power is an attractive option. Energy Trust of Oregon even offers technical services and cash incentives to licensed growers who install energy-efficient equipment.


(For more about green growing, see The Source’s Leaflet magazine in this issue.)

“We’re threading the needle between allowing the industry to emerge and succeed while at the same time protecting the high quality of life that so many of our rural residents value and enjoy,” — Nick Lelack But he doesn’t think the marijuana genie can be put back in its bottle. “I don’t believe it’s an option for the county to opt out now,” he said. DeBone predicts marijuana will become a key issue in the campaign. “The citizens that are opposing it will be very motivated. Just a few very focused people can get other people to listen and pay attention to an issue,” he said. He said he understands neighbors’ concerns, but the county must act within Oregon law. He defends commissioners’ decisions as having been made in public with a great deal of input from all sides. Adair, who lives in Sisters and chairs the county Republican Party, is less circumspect, worrying about overproduction, public safety and the effects on rural communities. “You have all kinds of people coming in and out,” she said about the grows already open in the county. “I worry about who it brings in. Really, do we want to attract those people? Mexico is having serious drug wars. It’s frightening.” Given how close the vote on Measure 91 was in Deschutes County, Adair thinks commissioners should have let voters decide whether to have grows and sales in the rural county. Tougher enforcement Right now, the county commission is conducting a thorough review of its marijuana rules. It recently completed a series of work sessions and will

Commissioners seem poised to implement a crackdown on marijuana grows. Currently, when a grower is out of compliance with development code, the county treats it like any other code violation. It notifies the owner and works with them to rectify the situation. Fines and other penalties are a last resort. A proposed proactive approach would go looking for violators and perhaps penalize them immediately. Where every other industry gets a chance to fix its problems, cannabis would be treated with zero tolerance. The decision is up to commissioners. “We would not change our approach without the board of county commissioners providing clear direction in a public meeting,” Lelack said—so the public will get a chance to weigh in. At least one commissioner seems to be leaning toward tough enforcement. “I say absolutely. If you’re looking for a clear direction from us today, I think we have an obligation to do that,” Baney said at a recent work session. Commissioner Phil Henderson is more tepid, but not necessarily opposed. “I like the gist of it there’s immediate sanction of some kind,” he said. But he worried that compliance on issues like smells and noise are very subjective and difficult to penalize without some due process. DeBone said he favors a more proactive approach, but he wants it to focus on illegal grows. If the county does move toward a

proactive enforcement model, it would likely need to hire additional staff in the code enforcement department and maybe the sheriff’s department. Paying for those positions could quickly consume the county’s share of statewide marijuana sales tax revenue, which was $442,646. Increased crime? Nope. “I’ve seen no increase in crime as a result of legalization of marijuana,” Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel said. He conceded, however, that he doesn’t know where there are illegal grows. “We need to do better as a community at policing illegal marijuana grows. Maybe there aren’t many, but I suspect there are some that we aren’t detecting.” Perhaps the greatest hurdle to identifying illegal grows is Oregon’s parallel systems for recreational and medical marijuana. The sheriff’s office recently sent its first grow case since legalization to the district attorney, and a grand jury has returned charges. Hummel views tough enforcement as good for the legal industry that has gone through the time, effort and expense of the extensive regulatory process. “We want to stop the criminals and protect the businesses that are doing it the right way,” he said. When law enforcement learns that someone is growing cannabis, officers can check against city, county and state licenses to see if it’s a legal recreational grow. But the Oregon Health Authority licenses medical grows, and state law prevents the agency from being very forthcoming with records. In such cases, law enforcement is often stymied. Hummel and Sheriff Nelson signed a joint letter to the OHA recently, asking it to provide a list of all registered medical grow sites in the county, updated at least quarterly. Generating and providing such a list likely would require a change to state law. Dialogue and compromise Given that marijuana is almost certainly here to stay, absent a federal crackdown, many people interviewed for this story hoped for better dialogue and compromise—at least the ones who could see past their desire for an outright ban on rural grows. “It’s not just marijuana,” the county’s Lelack said. “People care passionately about where they live, and even for minor applications, we’re seeing challenges. People don’t want to see changes.” Fox, the Alfalfa resident, said he doesn’t personally oppose marijuana, only disruption of his rural community. “There’s so much we don’t know about what the growers are doing, and the growers don’t know about how they are affecting people,” he said. “This is just some of the growing pains we go through when we introduce something new to the culture. There’s going to be some bumps in the road while we figure out how to make it all work for everyone.”  SW

County races to watch Marijuana could become an issue in the upcoming county commission races. Commissioners Tony DeBone and Tammy Baney are up for re-election. Both are Republicans, and both face primary challengers in the May 15 election. Ed Barbeau filed against DeBone, and Patti Adair filed against Baney. No Democrats had filed a few days before the deadline. Barbeau, who owns Pisano’s Woodfired Pizza in Tumalo, says he’ll bring business experience to the county commission if Republicans choose him. He gave passing mention to marijuana issues when announcing his campaign. “Federal and State decisions and inconsistency regarding cannabis and hemp continue to provide a difficult landscape for politicians,” he wrote. When asked about how he would handle applications for cannabis grows, he avoids taking a hard stand. “I’m not going to make decisions on cannabis until I have all the facts in front of me,” he said.

continue to engage with stakeholders from all sides, according to Community Development Director Nick Lelack. “We’re threading the needle between allowing the industry to emerge and succeed while at the same time protecting the high quality of life that so many of our rural residents value and enjoy,” he said. In the years since marijuana became legal, the county has approved 30 unique grow sites, with 22 more applications pending. Only nine of the approved applicants have also received a required license from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, which oversees the state marijuana issue, and can therefore legally operate. Lelack acknowledges that the county’s rules are among the most restrictive in the state. That was intentional. “Our board of commissioners wanted to get ahead of any potential changes and address those now. The theory with this program was, let’s make it more restrictive at the start but still compliant with state law. If we want to amend the rules in the future, it’s easier to make them less restrictive than more restrictive.” It doesn’t look like things are going to get less restrictive.

Head east, west or south of Bend and the artisanal coffee shops and overcrowded beer bars fade away, making way for landscapes, livestock and a different way of life. This week, Source staffers set out beyond our own corner of the world, exploring some of the small towns within a couple hours’ drive of home. If you’re looking to see the soul of Oregon that exists (mostly) east of the Cascade crest, here are some places to start.

 F U N FAC T S :

The National Register of Historic Places included the Log Cabin Inn in McKenzie Bridge until it was destroyed by fire in 2006. The resort at Belknap Hot Springs has been open to the public since the 1870s, except for a period of time between 19681978. Belknap Hot Springs is classified as having a warm-summer Mediterranean climate, according to the Koppen Climate Classification system. The area is also home to the Benedict Lodge — a religious retreat and church formed for the Benedictine monks in 1940. Sahalie Falls can be spotted in Disney’s movie, “Homeward Bound.”

MCKENZIE BRIDGE Blue Pool and beyond By Anne Pick I first heard about McKenzie Bridge when I dated someone from there. He didn’t think I knew it, which maybe I didn’t, but living in Oregon since I was 11, I’d definitely driven through. For me and other Bendites, heading west often involves an Oregon Ducks football game in Eugene—meaning passing through the tiny towns along the way may not always prompt a stop. Still, McKenzie Bridge, located 75 miles from Bend, calls for further exploration. Close to Belknap Hot Springs, the McKenzie River and the Tamolitch Pool—also called the Blue Pool—the reasons to stay in McKenzie Bridge add up quickly.

Pictured left is Sahalie Falls and the Tamolitch Blue Pool above. The river only flows over the falls a few times a year; the rest of the time the water emerges from the rocks in the basin of the waterfall pool.

Who This Trip is For: Ideal for weekend adventurers seeking a home base. Family friendly and perfect for the outdoor explorer set. Where to Stay: While the options to stay directly in McKenzie Bridge may be in low quantity, the surrounding area includes a variety of cabins and BnBs. I recommend Loloma Lodge, which has undergone new ownership since my stay. The quiet lodge includes four riverfront cabins, a log cabin and a classic log lodge. The bright cabins feature large windows that allow in tons of natural light, and you can’t beat their riverfront location. In the center of the Loloma Lodge property you’ll find a beautiful, well-tended garden—perfect for reading and relaxing. What to Do: A brief eight-minute drive from McKenzie Bridge is the relaxing haven that is Belknap Hot Springs. Unlike many other hot springs in Oregon, the water from the springs is piped into a pool. From there, explore the beautiful gardens and great hiking. Visit Koosah Falls and Sahalie Falls, both located northeast of McKenzie Bridge on Highway 126. Hike to the stunning blue waters of the Tamolitch Pool. While you’re in the area, take advantage of the McKenzie River itself with a rafting trip from High Country Expeditions. Where to Eat: Over the years, the McKenzie General Store in McKenzie Bridge has upped its game. In addition to finding the essentials for any meal you want to cook, you’ll also find a food truck/grill with fresh, natural and organic foods as well as beer and wine. The store added a back patio dining area with twinkling lights, a fire pit and picnic tables—a lovely riverside gathering spot along the McKenzie River. The General Store also features weekly live music and occasional movie nights. Try the locally sourced Lookout Pulled Pork Sandwich, featuring a house-made marionberry and bourbon BBQ sauce. Also enjoy the NW Salmon Tacos, made from fresh-caught, wild salmon.

MITCHELL

A view of Mitchell from SE High Street. Due to its location in a narrow canyon, the town is susceptible to floods.

Exploring the Painted Hills By Keely Damara

9 VOLUME 22  ISSUE 10  /  March 8, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Relatively new to Central Oregon, I was open for suggestions as to where to venture on a day trip outside of Bend. Mitchell, which offers scenic views, trails and historic buildings, seemed right up my alley. When my boyfriend and I drove down on Thursday of last week, it was snowing and the plows hadn’t caught up with the snowfall from the previous night. It was slow going at first, but the drive was beautiful. Who This Trip is For: Outdoor Lovers. There’s quite a bit to do in and around Mitchell. Where to Stay: The Oregon Hotel offers rooms for $50-$110 per night. The original hotel was built in the late 1800s, but burned down twice before the current iteration of the building was constructed in 1938. Accommodations include suites, apartments with kitchenettes, and a hostel. If you’re looking for something a little more secluded, there are a handful of Airbnbs around the area as well. Thanks to a friendly waitress for that tip. What to Do: The drive up is easy and scenic. Make a weekend of it—stop for fishing at the Ochoco Reservoir outside of Prineville (winter or summer) or play at the Ochoco Divide Sno-park just 20 minutes outside of Mitchell. Fishing, camping, hunting, hiking—Mitchell even has scenic bikeways. Dubbed one of the “7 Wonders of Oregon,” The Painted Hills offer a colorful display of gold and red clay, formed over 35 million years ago by volcanic activity. Part of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, the Painted Hills are only 10 miles from Mitchell off of Highway 26. The hiking trails and scenic outlooks are a perfect way to spend an afternoon. Pack a lunch, there are picnic areas surrounding the site and multiple hiking trails. We didn’t get to check out Lucky Strike Mines while we were in Mitchell, but if you’re into rocks, geodes and don’t mind getting dirty, you may enjoy digging for thunder eggs. Their hours vary by season, so it’s worth checking in before planning a trip. Where to Eat: At 9:30am on a Thursday, Mitchell was pretty quiet. We had plans to have breakfast at a cute little place with a ‘50s vibe called The Sidewalk Cafe and More, but they were closed (along with a few of the other joints in town). Winter is Mitchell’s slow season, but as our waitress, Karen, told us at the Bridge Creek Cafe, restaurants in town often take turns opening on slower days. It takes a village, right? The Bridge Creek Cafe is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but closed Wednesdays and Thursdays (we lucked out, Karen opened on a Thursday!). If you’re looking for lunch and a beer, Mitchell has its very own brewery— Tiger Town Brewing Company. located on Main Street.

The beautiful Painted Hills.

Hiding to the side of that shack named “Whole In The Wall” is a Tesla charging station.

Mitchell has survived three major floods, in 1884, 1904 and 1956. Residents banded together to rebuild the town after three major fires. Kate Paul of Mitchell was Miss Oregon in 2010.

Judy saw us milling about across the street and welcomed us into her store, asking us if we wanted to see photos of “Old Mitchell.” She’ll tell you everything you need to know about the history of the town—and a few cute stories of her dog to boot. The Historic Oregon Hotel has burned down two times; the current structure was built in 1938.

PAISLEY

All you need in Oregon’s Outback by Nicole Vulcan Likely to greet you when you roll into Paisley, on Highway 31: a flock of inquisitive sheep—or perhaps a herd of cattle, ready to drop their early-spring calves. The incorporated town of Paisley boasted 372 residents, according to stats released by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2016, and locals here like it that way. Come for recreation, the wideopen spaces and some friendly faces—but don’t think about staying, locals tell me. Sounds familiar… Who This Trip is For: Recreationalists, bird watchers, wanderers, families What to Do: Anything you do here typically involves indulging in the wide-open spaces. Bird watching is a popular activity around Summer Lake. Fishing and camping along the Chewaucan River also plays big, and not far from Paisley lies access to the Oregon Timber Trail, a 668-mile bikepacking route that spans the state. Soaking at Summer Lake Hot Springs, whether as a day tripper or an overnight guest, is a popular activity for visiting Benditos. Also check out PLAYAPresents, the Open Studio days once a month at PLAYA, the area’s artist in residency program. Summers have traditionally meant the annual Mosquito Festival, which raised money for vector control, though locals tell me it’s still undecided whether it will continue this year. Where to Eat: Paisley proper offers a whopping two spots for eats. We headed to the Homestead Cafe first, a fairly classic diner with twirly chairs that let you belly up to the counter, all while warming yourself near the giant woodstove. We’d heard tales of the delicious burgers, so each member of our trio ordered a different one, each handpressed. One member of our group—a bona fide farm girl who knows her way around cattle country—said her mushroom burger was the best she’d ever had. The city slicker in me, accustomed to hearing about “artisanal this-or-that” from every roadside pit stop within 100 miles of Portland, asked if the beef was local. It wasn’t. Still, killer burgers. Also along the biz strip is the Pioneer Saloon, also gaining a strong reputation for its menu. Owner John Steffes has plans to integrate a farm-to-table program in the saloon, but for now, the spot’s house-smoked tri tip recently received a nod from Sunset magazine. Apparently the word is out across the West. We stayed for a whiskey drink (what else?), charmed by the decorative historic bar, shipped around Cape Horn in the 1800s, the company and the juke box. Also note: while some towns of bigger populations can’t boast a drive-thru coffee stand, Paisley can. Where to Stay: In town, the Paisley Sage Rooms offers motel rooms for $75 a night. Six miles northwest of town along Hwy. 31 is Summer Lake Hot Springs, offering cabins starting at $100 a night as well as camping. The Lodge at Summer Lake offers rooms starting at $63 per night and cabins from between $65 and $140. Locals have also gotten in on the Airbnb game; look for a handful of cabin rentals, and even a doublewide available right in Paisley. Eight miles west of town is the Marster Spring campground, adjacent to the Chewaucan River. Rock hounding is big in the wider region.

Top, sheep enjoy the view and climb to new heights. Below, good eats, the Paisley School and famed Summer Lake Hot Springs.

In the 2016 Census report, 104 of the 372 people counted in Paisley were between the ages of 65 and 74. If you stop into one of Paisley’s churches, don’t show up late or the pastor might stop the service to acknowledge your tardiness. The word “playa” is not a term created at Burning Man, and Lake County has one, too. Playa actually refers to a dried lake bed, as in, the white expanse that is Summer Lake during the dry months.

SPRAY

A journey through time By Chris Miller My wife’s family has been camping in Spray since before she was born. She’s run the half marathon during the town’s big Memorial Day fiesta, trained to chase a greased pig in the rodeo, and has watched an outhouse get tipped over to remove a large rattlesnake coiled up in the corner. If this vignette of small town life appeals to you, Spray may be worth your while. 

Who This Trip is For: Those looking for a “rustic” experience What to Do: In the summer, cyclists who ride the 161-mile Painted Hills Scenic Bikeway can stop in Spray and enjoy a break from riding, watching the John Day River flow past. Rafters can float the river and fishermen can cast most of the year for smallmouth bass, or for the two native steelhead runs. Over Memorial Day weekend, there’s the Spray Rodeo and the East Oregon Half Marathon that starts in Service Creek, follows the John Day and ends in Spray. During elk and deer seasons, Spray gets many hunters, although most of the lands surrounding the town are private. Where to Stay: Spray has one motel—the River Bend Motel—that has seven rooms plus a small house for rent. The motel is bike and pet friendly, and is located across the street from the Lone Elk Market/gas station/restaurant. The room we rented was also kid friendly, with a bunk bed that had stuffed animals for kids to cuddle. How many kids have cuddled those pets? Who knows. … Rates for the hotel run from about $62 per night to $140 for the house. There’s also the campground at the Spray Riverfront Park for a thrifty $12 a night.

The Spray Pioneer Museum, built in 1912 as the Spray Baptist Church, became a museum in 1993. The Painted Hills, part of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, is 9 miles north of Mitchell off Hwy. 26, and is on the way to Spray.

Where to Eat: As far as eating in Spray… well, in the summertime the Lone Elk has a grill that cooks burgers, hot dogs and other stuff. In the winter—when I went there—bring your own food. We ended up dining on popcorn and beef jerky, with ice cream sandwiches for dessert. Spray was named for the community’s founder and first postmaster, John Freemont Spray. It was formed in 1900, when John Spray established a post office, ferry, a school and a store at the turn of the century. The town was the last in Wheeler County to incorporate, doing so in 1958. Two sawmills used to provide economic stability to the town, but they’re long since gone. Now, ranching and farming provide much of the town’s income. In 2017 there were 55 students K-12. All seven high school seniors graduated. The Spray Rodeo has been dubbed “The Best Small-Town Rodeo in the West.” Kids used to be able to chase a greased pig around the arena, and the kid that caught it could keep the piglet. Bend to Spray takes about two and a half hours. Like many other road trips, getting there is half the fun. My son stared out the window at the colored buttes that crop up from the sage and juniper-treed landscape, looking for wildlife. I was lost in thought, staring at the zig-zagging, free-flowing river until the sound of him saying, “Daddy,” crashed through my mind. I pulled over and saw what the fuss was about: a herd of what we thought were big-horned sheep (later learning they were mouflons, released years ago for hunting) was sauntering up the craggy hillside.

After replacing Lindberg with vocalist Zoli Teglas, they released their 10th album in 2012, “All Or Nothing.” The punchline to this is that by early 2013, Teglas wanted to leave the band and Lindberg rejoined just in time for the band’s 25th anniversary. To this day, the band never plays a single song off of “All or Nothing” live. They don’t even consider it a part of their discography on their website. In 2014, the band released “Yesterdays,” a compilation of unreleased songs written by deceased bassist Jason Thirsk, but otherwise hasn’t released new material with Lindberg singing since 2008. In an October 2017 interview with

Ray LaMontagne with Neko Case by Danielle Meyers

Courtesty Commanders Jazz Ensemble

Grammy Award Winner Ray LaMontagne teams up with Neko Case to tour the U.S.—making a stop in Bend at Les Schwab this May. The tour begins at the Sasquatch Music Festival in the Gorge May 27, then moves to Boise followed by Bend on May 30, then onto Berkeley and ending in Denver, Colo. LaMontagne will showcase his seven studio albums, five of which have reached Top 10 Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart and Billboards Digital Albums chart. The 2010 album, “God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise” won the Grammy for Best Folk Album. LaMontagne will be on tour with indie-rock singer, Neko Case—who, in our opinion, should really have her own show at the Schwab. Also a member of the New Pornographers, she’s got pipes, rad lyrics and mad music industry cred. Yeah, she rocks.

NATIONAL SCHOOL WALK OUT #ENOUGHWALKOUT BY KEELY DAMARA

Local teenagers at Bend and Summit High Schools are leading the Bend demonstration of the student Walk Out scheduled to happen worldwide March 14. At 10 am in every time zone, students all over the world are planning to walk out of classrooms for 17 minutes, representing the 17 deaths resulting from the Parkland shooting. Ily Logeais, a 17-year-old senior at Summit High School, is one of the students coordinating the “17 Days of Action” campaign leading up to the Walk Out. Each day between Feb. 25 and March 14, students are issuing a call to action for solutions to end gun violence in schools. So far that has included asking Rep. Greg Walden to support gun law reform, donating to the Stoneman Douglas Victims Fund, encouraging teens to register to vote and more. “It’s turned into something bigger already,” said Logeais. “Just the fact that people are out their saying we are going to sign this petition, we’re going to let the local congressmen and representatives what we’re feeling—it’s definitely having a bigger impact than I ever thought it would.” Check out the Instagram @17daysofactionbend to see what the teens have planned in the days leading up to the Walk Out.

and had heard they were looking for violists. When she was 15, her family moved to Bellingham, Wash. Bastuscheck went on to earn a bachelor’s in music from Western Washington University, and later, a teaching degree from the University of Washington. That’s where she met her husband, Nathan, with whom she and others started a “renegade orchestra” called the University Chamber Orchestra. Husband Nathan is also a musician who plays the tuba. One of his regular engagements is the downtown Oktoberfest every year with the Mirko Pressler Band—always a crowd favorite. And during the holidays, Nathan can sometimes be heard playing carols on his euphonium throughout the aisles of Costco, where he works. The instrument is like a smaller version of a tuba, but a tad more portable. On a 2006 camping trip to Steens Mountain, she and Nathan, a native Oregonian, passed through Bend,

When Haley Stendahl’s grandmother taught her to cross stitch, she may not have imagined the vision her granddaughter would have: taking a traditional, primarily female medium and turning it straight up onto its head. Stendahl’s collaboration with longtime friend Briony Deege has resulted in the empowering and often hilarious cross stitch art they create under the name, Crosstitutes. The two women met when working at an office in Vancouver, Wash. When Stendahl moved back to her hometown of Bend, it wasn’t too long after that Deege followed. Looking for something they could do together, Stendahl taught Deege to cross stitch, and the two never looked back. The pair often stitch effigies of famous rappers, funny sayings from pop culture and even the bawdy comments you might only make to your best girlfriends. Often, their

deciding to move here from Juneau. When not playing or teaching music, Bastuscheck enjoys hiking, camping and traveling. Bastuscheck also performs with two orchestras. She’s the principal violist for the Juneau Symphony, flying there for concerts four times a year. Traveling from Bend to Juneau, an over1,800-mile one-way jaunt, has earned her “MVP” status on Alaska Airlines. She also jumps in the car and heads down Hwy. 97 a few times a year to play as a section violist with the North State Symphony, performing concerts in Redding and Chico, Calif. Both orchestras “are really rewarding and satisfying to play in,” Bastuscheck says. “For the first time in my life I feel I’m actually playing more than I’m teaching, and I really like it.” She’s been playing the same viola, which she calls her “ax,” since 1974.

By Teafly Peterson work involves the “naughty words” that in the past would have been considered “too delicate” for a “lady.” Those words and their fearlessness to be who they are have ignited passion and inspiration in the community, and launched a lot of laughter. The goal is not just to be funny. Like for most artists, the aim is to respond to the world around them in a way that’s authentic and honest. Both women are not afraid to use the F word—feminists—when speaking about themselves. It’s in this world that their work resonates with so many other young women their age. “We are often inspired by badass women. We do something traditional, but we do it in our own voice,” says Deege. They also find inspiration in their friends, who often send text messages with things they should stitch. They wake up after a night out, phones full of notes of things they overhear.

“Our main goal is ‘girls support girls.’ No matter who you are, no matter any of these boxes people try to put you in, we accept you and support you and want to hang with you! We can grow further if we grow together,” says Stendahl. Both women live by the credo that they are allowed to enjoy themselves and live their lives in the way they best see fit, and they want that for other women, too. It’s this world they’re building, one stitch at a time.  SW

considering picking up an instrument, or continuing to play: “They should get a good teacher, practice, listen to the teacher’s advice and play with as many different groups as possible, play as much as they can with other kids. It’s important for them to know what good sounds like.” Bastuscheck says she enjoys providing young musicians with the symphony orchestra experience they might not get in school, running rehearsals in the same no-nonsense, professional manner as an adult orchestra, “to give them that more extended, professional experience.” Over the years she’s substitute-taught music classes in nearly every Bend and Redmond school. She also teaches at the Cascade School of Music in Bend and gives private lessons, currently coaching eight viola students and three violinists. Bastuscheck started playing the viola at the age of 9. By age 11, she was playing in the San Jose Youth Orchestra in California. She says she chose the viola because she wanted to play in the All City Orchestra in Palo Alto

Longtime instructor shares her love for music

f you were—or are—a middle school or high school student in Central Oregon who plays the viola or violin, there’s a good chance you’ve received some instruction from Julia Bastuscheck. She’s been working with young musicians since moving to Bend in 2009, after “retiring” from a 21-year teaching career in Juneau, Alaska, where she also conducted the Juneau Youth Symphony. Bastuscheck has been involved with the Central Oregon Youth Orchestra since its inception in 2012. She’s a COYO co-conductor with Eddy Robinson, who also leads the orchestras at Bend’s Mountain View High School and Sky View Middle School. A highlight for the young COYO muscians came in June 2015 when they were selected to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City. COYO currently has about 75 students, ages 10 to 18. Any young player who wants to can join the junior symphony, but students must audition to play in the youth orchestra, “so they have to play at a certain level,” Bastuscheck says. She has some advice for students

Bend has grown to a point where the actors are able to carry the play. I needed that, too. As a director, I open doors and they choose where to walk through. It’s all about investigating and honesty, the ability to go places that you’ve never gone before. To be responsible and willing to open doors and try it. I think audiences are going to be blown away by these actors. We make it work through cooperation. That’s what it’s all about. It’s not, “This is what I want.” I just watch them create. SW: How did you get started as a director? SS: I started getting involved in theater as an actor. Then, close to 40 years ago, I was the artistic director in San Clemente and I started a reader’s theater. It was a lunchtime thing. People could spend their lunch hour listening to plays being read. I was giving one called “As Is,”

Little Libraries That Could Head Start fosters reading at home, thanks to one volunteer’s effort By Howard Leff

all Alice Staley the fairy book-mother to Bend’s Head Start programs. The retired educator and grandma recently learned that most of the city’s low-income families didn’t have a single children’s book in their home—a sobering statistic that didn’t sit well with the former Montessori instructor. Instead of trying to figure out how to transport Head Start kids to libraries, she chose instead to bring libraries to them. “I thought, well, maybe if I made a little library and stocked it with books— they could take them home and bring them back—and that would be a way of rotating books into the home,” she says. Staley drew up plans, gathered supplies and hand-built a series of cubby hole-sized “little libraries” from scratch, which she’s in the process of donating to Bend’s three Head Start locations. “The main goals,” she says, “are to get the children to love books, to get a variety of books into the home, and then hopefully to get some adult in the home or even an older sibling to read aloud to the child. Because the studies that I read showed that if there are books in the

home, and if somebody reads aloud to children, those are the two things that are most relevant in predicting success in both life and in school.” The first two libraries are now in East Bend’s Head Start classrooms. “In December I came and gave the first little library—a little more than 100 books— so every child got two books to take home and all the rest went in the library. I’ve collected about 250 books so far, all appropriate for three-to-five-year-olds, which is the age group here,” Staley says. “I think it’s amazing that, because of her, every one of my students has books to take home to read as well as return to get new ones,” says East Bend Head Start Teacher Advocate Lexi Chandler. “Literature is so important for a child’s development and well-being, so having them be able to access books regularly is truly inspiring.” The sight of these students marveling over their suddenly wide selection of books is an authentic reward for all of Staley’s hard work. “They are really excited,” she says. “They’re really sweet. They’ll pick them up and try to decide

which two they want out of all the books. We spread them all out. They stick their head inside the little libraries. My grandchildren decorated them with pictures of children and animals.” But along with all this success comes a need for more books. Staley hopes to deliver little libraries to Bend’s other two Head Start locations later this year. “As the children graduate, they’ll keep two of the books. That will sort of deplete our supply, so we’re hoping to keep it going,” she says. Donations are always welcome. “The children were so excited to take books home,” says Chandler. “One of my students even said, ‘I cannot wait to tell my Mom!’” Those interested in donating children’s books can either contact Staley to arrange a pickup, drop them off at the East Bend Head Start building or leave them at The Lot—the Bend food truck court owned by Staley’s son.  SW

he Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, “August, Osage County,” opens at the Cascades Theatre Friday. The 2008 play, upon which the 2013 film starring Meryl Streep was based, delves into the personal lives of the Weston clan as they come together at their Oklahoma homestead after the mysterious disappearance of an elder family member. We sat down with director Sandy Silver about the play. Source Weekly: “August, Osage County” is an intense play, with some disturbing themes. How did the Cascades company come to select a piece that is such a departure for the Bend theater community? Sandy Silver: It’s a work I have wanted to direct for a very long time, for several reasons. I was truly waiting for the right time. Bend theaters have been taking a few more chances. “In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play),” I directed last season. The theater was kind enough to take a chance on it. Audiences loved it and laughed, as I wanted them to. So this year I thought was the year to submit “August, Osage County.” It is a comedy. That’s what I’ve been

LITTLE BITES By Lisa Sipe

When it comes to eats, billionaires make pop stars look like paupers

Spring Equinox Potluck at Boundless Farmstead

Wealthy folks have to eat, too, but not too much or too little.

airport, snacks were available. And then. ... Holladay worked for the pop star for about a month and then moved to another gig as an eating disorder com-

The fun part when working with the billionaire family was learning that when I’m hungry, a text was sent to the chef and within 15 minutes a meal was in front of me. LS: Does she seem to enjoy the food? MH: Not all the time, but most of the time, yes. At some point, I could tell that she was getting sick of the food. Not because it was bad, but when eating six or more meals a day it’s difficult for the chef to be creative. LS: What was your favorite meal? MH: Pan seared scallops with roasted veggies. LS: When the pop star was on tour, did the chef still cook? MH: The chef prepared meals for travel days, and when we arrived at a hotel the chef would get a section of the hotel kitchen to continue preparing meals. The meals were stocked in the refrigerator and available to heat either in the room or while at the venue. If meal time came while traveling to or from the

panion to a billionaire’s daughter. She told me the billionaire made the pop star look like a pauper. The billionaire’s home alone is valued at triple the net worth of the pop star. Holladay got her own room in the lavish Hollywood home because she was companioning 24/7. The first thing she said to me after taking the job was, “I think they have ninja housekeepers.” Every time Holladay went back to her room she said everything was tidied up. If there were any dirty clothes they were cleaned and folded. She told me, “I never saw anyone working there.” It’s probably pretty easy to hide in a home where the master bedroom is more than double the size of the average American home. If this home had ninja housekeepers, I had to know about the kitchen staff. LS: What is it like to eat with a

billionaire? MH: Breakfast is the basics of what you would want, like eggs, bacon, pancakes or waffles. Every day there is a new lunch and dinner menu with between six and 10 options including salads, soups, appetizers and main courses. The house has two kitchens, one for the family and a second one in the guest house with a full restaurant kitchen. The refrigerator is stocked with prepared entrees in case anyone gets hungry after the chefs are gone for the evening. LS: Does the billionaire eat like us or have fancier taste? MH: I wouldn’t say fancier, but healthier, mainly gluten-free. I noticed they have the chefs re-create some of their favorite foods from local restaurants. LS: Do you have any fun food stories? MH: The fun part when working with the billionaire family was learning that when I’m hungry, a text was sent to the chef and within 15 minutes a meal was in front of me. I discovered my room had a stocked mini fridge in the closet. It was filled with sports drinks, water, sparkling water and soda. My favorite part was the Keurig in the closet with cups, sweeteners and a drawer filled with coffee, hot cocoa and 10 different types of tea.  SW

What is an eating disorder companion? A person to support someone struggling with eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, restricting). The companion’s job is to assist the clinical team with updates on behaviors and progress. They help teach clients in real time how to deal with triggers or emotions that often result in eating disorder behavior. The clients who benefit from an eating disorder companion typically don’t meet the criteria for in-patient treatment, nor would they benefit from it.

Spend an evening on the farm to celebrate spring and honor the earth. Boundless Farmstead’s first potluck is March 18. Owner Megan French says she and partner David Aleksander conceived the event “to bring awareness to things like spring and fertility, agriculture, the sunlight returning and how to care for the earth a little bit more. The casual setting of a potluck is to make it more accessible to people; they can participate in conversations if they choose, eat nourishing food and learn a little bit more about the world they walk through.” At the potluck celebration you can make seed bombs with seeds from Central Oregon Seed Exchange and natural dyes for coloring eggs. The evening will conclude with a traditional bonfire. To RSVP and find out what to bring, visit the website. Boundless Farmstead 25360 Walker Rd., Bend Boundlessfarmstead.com 541-390-4825

Expansion for Bethlyn’s Global Fusion Chef Bethlyn Rider started Bethlyn’s Global Fusion as a food truck, and in the span of a few years, the restaurant has outgrown two brick and mortar locations. Rider is expanding the current westside location into the adjacent space previously occupied by High Desert Printers. Rider said, “We have outgrown our current space. It’s very cramped, it’s difficult for customers to navigate to the tables. The new space is going to have a full bar area and an extra 40 seats. The decor is going to be very exciting with a modern, hip, global theme.” Opening day for the new space is scheduled for April 21. Until then you can enjoy fried avocado tacos, Thai curry coconut noodle bowls and French seared salmon salads at the current space.

“I

may start working with a pop star,” Miranda Holladay said. “I meet her tonight to see if she wants me to be her eating disorder companion.” “Seriously?” I replied. My friend, whose name I’ve changed to protect her privacy, lives in Los Angeles, where she’s met a lot of celebrities while working in the drug rehabilitation industry. Before this, she’s never worked directly with any of them. I asked which pop star, to which Holladay kindly replied, “I can’t tell you because I have to respect her privacy.” “So, it’s a chick?” I pressed. “Yes, but that’s all you’re getting out of me,” she said. “What exactly will you be doing for this pop star?” I asked. Holladay replied with a giggle, “I need to keep her from eating pizza in the middle of the night.” My jaw dropped to the floor. How do you do that? Holladay started working for the pop star right after we talked. The next time we spoke, I barraged her with questions: Lisa Sipe: What surprised you the most about how the pop star eats? Miranda Holladay: She eats every three hours and the food is prepared by a nutritionist chef.

MICRO A River of IPA

Taking Riverbend’s seven-beer haze challenge

The IPA’s bright and opaque at Riverbend Four of these are so-called “milkshake IPAs,” usually brewed with lactose for a fuller body and fruit or vanilla to define its flavor. The term was first coined by Swedish brewery Omnipollo, and Riverbend has fully committed to the sub-genre, producing four different varieties that are canned and available in stores across Oregon. There’s something for almost every palate in the lineup, but Hawaiian Crunk (with passionfruit, orange and guava) and Berry the Hopetition (featuring a mixture of berries) are both standouts, offering creamy, fruity packages without excessive bitterness getting in the way. The rest of the haze lineup is also worth more than a glance. Dream Team is on the simpler side, with Citra and Mosaic hops intermingling very pleasantly, while No Biggie is a 10-percenter with a massive amount of tropical flavor. It’s a lineup packed with variety, and it makes Riverbend more than worth visiting for those seeking new taste innovations in their beer.  SW

iverbend Brewing Company, located a bit north of downtown along the parkway, made its first batch of beer back in September 2013. By Bend standards, that means it’s been around practically forever. And now, thanks to one of Central Oregon’s most expansive pale-ale and IPA programs, the brewery’s sports pub is now far more than just another stamp on the Bend Ale Trail. Those who haven’t stopped by Riverbend’s pub on NE Division for a while might be surprised to see how much it’s changed over the years. Little to nothing remains from the location’s years as Rivals, a fairly generic sports bar and poker room. “Sports bar” is still the best way to describe the space, but it feels much more wide open and less bro-like than it used to be, especially with the revamp Riverbend did to the space (and its logo) not long ago. This in itself means it’s worth a visit for Bendites who still mainly remember the site as a dark man-cave of a bar. Over the past few years, Riverbend has done a lot to make its selection stand out from the local pack. Just take a look at the beer menu, which includes a surprisingly massive selection of hazy IPAs—a dedication to the style, or trend, that’s only matched locally by Sunriver Brewing. In one of the more enticing sampler-flight packages around town, Riverbend lets visitors enjoy seven generous pours of in-house beer for $10. That’s the price point for 10 Barrel’s own sampler (10 beers in one visit to the pub, as their menu puts it), but that’s for 10 rather small pours and it’s non-customizable. No such restrictions are in place at Riverbend, which makes it perfectly possible to try out seven different New England-style hazy ales at once—the kind of luxury that would be hard to find even in New England itself.

By Jared Rasic

“Death Wish” being released a few weeks after “Black Panther” is the cinematic equivalent of Trump getting elected after Obama. barely moves, and whether he’s firing a gun, mourning his dead wife or torturing someone by slicing open their sciatic nerve, Willis constantly looks like he’s one brisket sandwich away from a power nap. When Kersey’s wife is murdered and his daughter put into a coma after a home invasion, he throws on a hoodie and takes the law into his own hands. He’s primarily hunting the men who destroyed his family, but he shoots a

carjacker and a drug dealer for some practice. In a different world, this would just be a below-average revenge thriller, but in the America of 2018, a white guy in a black hoodie shooting people of color (and a few white folk) isn’t just poor timing; it plays like an NRA fever dream. You can just picture undead Charlton Heston sitting in a dark room, trembling hands, sliding sweaty dollar bills into the machine and waiting for the curtain to slide up for images of the “good guy with a gun” making bang-bang at the “bad guy with a gun.” Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a huge amount of faith in the police. If someone murdered my wife I would want some bloody and brutal revenge. I’d hunt the guy to the ends of the Earth, even knowing the toll that would take on me. I can’t imagine murdering someone, regardless of their crime, but Willis smirks his way through the movie like he’s getting off on the mayhem. It might make for an interesting movie, but “Death Wish” has nothing beneath the surface other than director Eli Roth’s desire to show exploding skulls and bloody dismemberment. A few innocent bystanders get taken out because of Kersey’s crusade and he doesn’t take a moment to reflect. Early in the movie, when he sees himself on TV killing someone, he smiles, but later when he sees the negative side of his choices, he shuts the TV off. For a movie so focused on the defunct paradigm of the 1950s idea of masculinity, Kersey is a coward who never feels remorse or

would call “Death Wish” insensitive, but that would be an insult to people born without senses. Instead, “Death Wish” is more of a thoughtless fart in a car full of idiots; eyes twitching, nose burning, you taste something foul, but no one’s confessing to the stench. Now all you have is a directionless rage, flying into the face of the innocent as well as the guilty. I guess Eli Roth’s “Death Wish” is better than Charlie Bronson’s, but only because it’s mildly less fascist and doesn’t have a graphic and exploitative rape. Bruce Willis is a more nuanced actor than Bronson, but you wouldn’t know it from this movie. His Paul Kersey is a doctor (instead of a teacher like in the original), so he’s already numbed to blood and violence. That’s perfect since Willis looks like he’s suffering from a minor stroke the entire film. His face

faces any personal consequences for his actions. It’s like if “Dexter” ended with everyone jumping up in the air and high-fiving. “Death Wish” being released a few weeks after “Black Panther” is the cinematic equivalent of Trump getting elected after Obama. I don’t blame Hollywood or Eli Roth or even Bruce Willis for this dumpster fire. Sitting in that theater and hearing the audience giggle after Willis pops some guy’s brains out the top of his head or sprays brake fluid into someone’s open wound, I realized

the filmmakers were giving us exactly what they think we want: Some kind of ugly Anglo-catharsis to help us feel safe against the strangers at our door—a cinematic gun we can wave around as we revel in our isolationism and hope all the faces around us will be familiar, similar and white.

The eagles are baaaaack! By Jim Anderson

welfare. That dear woman was beside herself as she watched helplessly the attempts of the alarmed female eagle trying to coax the baby back into the nest by offering it food. I had the honor to be with Zuelke as she went though the pain and sorrow of that event. She wanted me to go over there and place the baby back into the nest, but that wasn’t in the “rules.” If the youngster had been blown out because of human causes I guess it would have been legal to butt in. But this was all in Mother Nature’s bailiwick; we humans had nothing to do with it. Unfortunately, the baby wasn’t any more than a few days old when the windstorm blew it out and tumbled it down into the outer parts of the nest. Again and again mom offered the tiny nestling food to entice it back into the nest, but time and time again the weak and helpless chick fell back exhausted, until finally the wind sapped away all the warmth and strength of the nestling and it died. I thought I was going to lose Zuelke; her tears, suffering and anxiety were so sad to witness. If there had been two nestlings perhaps it wouldn’t have been so hard on her, but in time she healed and accepted the unfortunate incident as part of what is actually fairly normal and regular in Nature. The female kept coming back each spring, each time making the nest bigger, stronger and safer for her little ones. And each time she came back, Zuelke and Babcock said, “What if we had a camera…” Then one spring day the light came on. Babcock had the answer and the beginning of what we see today began to happen.

Gary Miller and the Sisters Photography Club jumped right in to keep the cam up and running, and Lawrence herself plunked down the money needed to keep the streaming going. But it was Kevin Smith of East Cascades Audubon Society who took over all the financial needs, and Jim Hammond of the Sisters Astronomy Club who not only solved all the mechanical and optical issues, but is still mothering it today. It’s free to watch, but costly to keep going. Jim has to keep tuning it up, as it’s sitting right out there in weather, even under the shelter of the original gazebo. It also costs money to pay the streaming costs, and the equipment isn’t free, either. If you’d like to help defray the costs, you can make a donation right on the Golden Eagle webpage, goldeneaglecam.com. As you watch life unfurl for the young eagles in the nest, give a thought to how well the love of nature works when combined with a lot of people cooperating and working together for the good of all, and what that will mean in the years to come.

I

n the entire U.S. of A. there’s only one Golden Eagle nest being monitored by webcam at this time, and it’s right here in Sisters Country. And thanks to the East Cascades Audubon Society, which is paying to have the images streamed around the world, landowner Leslie Lawrence, who watches over the camera equipment, and Sisters Astronomy Club technician Jim Hammond, who keeps the equipment going, all you have to do is wiggle your mouse, go to goldeneaglecam.com and watch the live image. You’ll see a very regal, noble-looking adult female Golden Eagle very quietly—and in a queen’s pose she so easily occupies—incubating one or two eggs that, if all goes well, will hatch in about 35 to 40 days. If you’re watching when the eggs hatch, you’ll witness just how tender a momma Golden Eagle can be. As soon as she hears (feels?) the young eagle starting to crack the shell that begins the process of hatching, she carefully rises, steps to the side of the nest and watches the process very intently…and now you can do the same sitting in your home. If it hadn’t been for the dedication of Janet Zuelke and her sidekick, Forrest Babcock, committed to the safety of the eagles that built a nest on the cliff overlooking Whychus Creek, none of what we are enjoying today would have been possible. In fact, Zuelke took personal ownership of that nest. From the time the female laid her first egg, Zuelke was on pins and needles, worrying about the welfare of the nestlings and parents. One year a youngster was blown out of the nest in a powerful windstorm, and really, I worried abut Zuelke’s health and

A tent, staked to the ground was protecting the camera system back in 2011—crude, shaky and far from weatherproof. But anyone who knew and worked with Babcock also knew he was good at solving challenges, and his first gazebo solved the problem of stability and weather protection. As an optical engineer, applying his skills to challenges was right up his alley. What a thrill it was the first time the two called me to come out and see the first images of the eagles on the TV in their living room. From that day on, the images became more steady, better focused and more reliable, and the crowning glory came when Babcock, all by himself, poured a concrete pedestal in his beautifully built gazebo to support the camera. From that day to this, the images streaming out of the optical and electronic equipment now housed in their beautiful old gazebo are rock-solid and are being viewed around the world. I’m sure many people held their breath when Zuelke and Babcock sold out and left Sisters Country, but Leslie Lawrence, the wonderful lady who purchased the place, took to the eagle cam like a duck to water.

many hurdles to jump in getting this done. A recent book by Kol Peterson, “Backdoor Revolution The Definitive Guide to ADU Development,” addresses many of these issues. For those interested in learning more, Peterson is teaching an all-day class on ADU strategies and how to build one on your lot in Bend March 10 at Trinity Episcopal Church. There will also be an Environmental Center Green Drinks reception on March 8 to meet the author and where a brief presentation will be provided.

ccording to an article in Realtor Magazine, a recent study by the National Association of Home Builders found 53 percent of those surveyed said they would consider the possibility of buying a small home. According to the report, more than half of millennials and Generation X members are open to the idea of living in a tiny home, but the percentages go lower for baby boomers (45 percent) and seniors (29 percent). Most tiny homes have sleeping areas in lofts that require climbing a ladder of narrow stairs—likely a reason for the lowered interest among older populations. A tiny home is often defined as a home under 600 square feet, and not necessarily a home on wheels of 100200 square feet. Permanent, smaller homes built as accessory dwelling units are increasingly popular in many cities, including Bend and Portland. The fact that there’s available land in developed areas with infrastructure already in place makes this highly desirable from the perspective of environmental impact and cost. There are, however,

Men can experience a sort of temporary amnesia in the moment, leading them to ask you for your number. Shortly afterward, their memory returns: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, waitâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I have a girlfriend.â&#x20AC;? Or â&#x20AC;&#x153;My herpes is raging.â&#x20AC;? Or â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mob is still after me. The Saskatoon mob.â&#x20AC;? (They gag you and duct-tape you to a chair and say â&#x20AC;&#x153;pleaseâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank youâ&#x20AC;? repeatedly until you pass out.) Of course, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just men who are prone to ride the â&#x20AC;&#x153;seemed like a good idea at the timeâ&#x20AC;? seesaw. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anyone with a human brain. This asking for your number and then never actually dialing it thing appears to be an example of our brainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two systems at workâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;our quick-to-react emotional system and our slower-to-come-around reasoning system, which I wrote about in a recent column, per the research of psychologist Daniel Kahneman. Again, the fast emotional system responds immediatelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and automatically: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, baby! Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a woman whose clothes Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see in a pile on my bedroom rug.â&#x20AC;? Or, if the lust is for a little head-busting: â&#x20AC;&#x153;BARRRR FIGHT!â&#x20AC;? The rational system comes around later, often for a little rethink about whatever the emotional system got the person intoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; like when the bar brawler dude is cooling his heels in the slammer, seeing as how the collections bail bondsmen will accept as collateral do not include all the toenail clippings one has saved since 1999. In other words, it helps to view any request for your number as a moment of flatteryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;nothing more. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect a guy to call. In fact, expect most not to call. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be right. If they do, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be pleasantly surprised, like getting that winning lottery scratcher that allows you to buy that Lamborghini youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been eyeingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the whole car, not just the logoadorned leather key ring to attach to the keys for your 3,000-year-old Honda.

Full Meddle Jackie I have a very good friendâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a friend who shows up for me in big ways when the chips are down. However, she is

very judgmental and offers her opinion on everything from how I should groom my cat to why I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get Botox. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t presume to tell her how to cut her hair or treat her dogsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;unless she asked. Her comments often hurt my feelings. How do I gently get her to stop acting like my vet, my beautician, etc.? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Annoyed It must be tempting to ask her: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, wanna come over on Thursday night? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do a stir-fry, and we can watch Netflixâ&#x20AC;Śor you can do an hour on why my new haircut was a tragic mistake and how (for the fourth time!) the couch should be against the other wall.â&#x20AC;? Friendly advice is not always as, uh, other-serving as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made out to be. Communications researcher Matthew M. Martin emphasizes that â&#x20AC;&#x153;people communicate to Amy Alkon satisfy personal needs.â&#x20AC;? He notes that previous research identified six basic â&#x20AC;&#x153;interaction motives (why people have conversations with others)â&#x20AC;?: pleasure, affection, inclusion, relaxation, control, and escape (like ditching your own problems to fixate on what a hot mess your friend is).  Research by social psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky, among others, suggests itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in our self-interest to be helpful. Helping feels good in the moment (the â&#x20AC;&#x153;pleasureâ&#x20AC;? motive). Also, the sort of happiness with staying powerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the feeling that our life has meaningâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;comes from extending ourselves for others rather than, say, shoving â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em out of the way and chasing happiness for ourselves (like by amassing more shoes or buying a new set of boobs).  Of course, if it is the pleasure motive driving your friend, it may come from a darker placeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like a desire to show off and act superiorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which may dovetail with â&#x20AC;&#x153;the control motive,â&#x20AC;? which, Martin explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;involves the need to influence others and to be viewed by others as competent.â&#x20AC;?  Regardless, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t owe anyone your attentionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not even a compulsively helpful â&#x20AC;&#x153;very good friend.â&#x20AC;? Wait until a moment when you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ducking flying tips. Tell her that you love that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to look out for you but that her values arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily your values. Accordingly, you have a new policy: No more unsolicited advice, except in emergencies.  Qualifying situations call for brief, life-preserving warningsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;watch outâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;duck!â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;not the longer-winded constructive tips offered in so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;fashion emergenciesâ&#x20AC;?: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have you seen yourself from behind? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d best rethink those pants, doll.â&#x20AC;?

ASTROLOGY PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): According to my

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The men who work on offshore oil rigs perform demanding, dangerous tasks on a regular basis. If they make mistakes, they may get injured or befoul the sea with petroleum. As you might guess, the culture on these rigs has traditionally been macho, stoic, and hard-driving. But in recent years, that has changed at one company. Shell Oil’s workers in the U.S. were trained by Holocaust survivor Claire Nuer to talk about their feelings, be willing to admit errors, and soften their attitudes. As a result, the company’s safety record has improved dramatically. If macho dudes toiling on oil rigs can become more vulnerable and open and tenderly expressive, so can you, Aries. And now would be a propitious time to do it.

TAURUS (April 20May 20): How will you celebrate your upcoming climax and culmination, Taurus? With a howl of triumph, a fist pump, and three cartwheels? With a humble speech thanking everyone who helped you along the way? With a bottle of champagne, a gourmet feast, and spectacular sex? However you choose to mark this transition from one chapter of your life story to the next chapter, I suggest that you include an action that will help the next chapter get off to a rousing start. In your ritual of completion, plant seeds for the future.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): On April 23, 1516, the

actually do so, you are under the spell of velleity. Your fantasy of communicating with more flair and candor is a velleity if you never initiate the practical steps to accomplish that goal. Most of us suffer from this weakness at one time or another. But the good news, Virgo, is that you are primed to overcome your version of it during the next six weeks. Life will conspire to assist you if you resolve to turn your wishy-washy wishes into potent action plans -- and then actually carry out those plans.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the 2002 film *Spiderman,* there’s a scene where the character Mary Jane slips on a spilled drink as she carries a tray full of food through a cafeteria. Spiderman, disguised as his alter ego Peter Parker, makes a miraculous save. He jumps up from his chair and catches Mary Jane before she falls. Meanwhile, he grabs her tray and uses it to gracefully capture her apple, sandwich, carton of milk, and bowl of jello before they hit the floor. The filmmakers say they didn’t use CGI to render this scene. The lead actor, Tobey Maguire, allegedly accomplished it in real life -- although it took 156 takes before he finally mastered it. I hope you have that level of patient determination in the coming weeks, Libra. You, too, can perform a small miracle if you do. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio mathematician Benoît Mandelbrot was a connoisseur of “the art of roughness” and “the uncontrolled element in life.” He liked to locate and study the hidden order in seemingly chaotic and messy things. “My life seemed to be a series of events and accidents,” he said. “Yet when I look back I see a pattern.” I bring his perspective to your attention, Scorpio, because you are entering a phase when the hidden order and secret meanings of your life will emerge into view. Be alert for surprising hints of coherence.

in July and August you will be invited to commune with rousing opportunities and exciting escapades. But right now I’m advising you to channel your intelligence into well-contained opportunities and sensible adventures. In fact, my projections suggest that your ability to capitalize fully on the future’s rousing opportunities and exciting escapades will depend on how well you master the current crop of well-contained opportunities and sensible adventures. Making the most of today’s small pleasures will qualify you to harvest bigger pleasures later.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): What’s your most

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you saw the

frustrating flaw? During the next seven weeks, you will have enhanced power to diminish its grip on you. It’s even possible you will partially correct it or outgrow it. To take maximum advantage of this opportunity, rise above any covert tendency you might have to cling to your familiar pain. Rebel against the attitude described by novelist Stephen King: “It’s hard to let go. Even when what you’re holding onto is full of thorns, it’s hard to let go. Maybe especially then.”

animated film *The Lion King,* you may have been impressed with the authenticity of the lions’ roars and snarls. Did the producers place microphones in the vicinity of actual lions? No. Voice actor Frank Welker produced the sounds by growling and yelling into a metal garbage can. I propose this as a useful metaphor for you in the coming days. First, I hope it inspires you to generate a compelling and creative illusion of your own -- an illusion that serves a good purpose. Second, I hope it alerts you to the possibility that other people will be offering you compelling and creative illusions -- illusions that you should engage with only if they serve a good purpose.

the Dark,* author Frederick Buechner writes that the ancient Druids took “a special interest in in-between things like mistletoe, which is neither quite a plant nor quite a tree, and mist, which is neither quite rain nor quite air, and dreams, which are neither quite waking nor quite sleep.” According to my reading of the astrological omens, in-between phenomena will be your specialty in the coming weeks. You will also thrive in relationship to anything that lives in two worlds or that has paradoxical qualities. I hope you’ll exult in the educational delights that come from your willingness to be teased and mystified.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The English word “velleity” refers to an empty wish that has no power behind it. If you feel a longing to make a pilgrimage to a holy site, but can’t summon the motivation to

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I suspect that

Germanic duchy of Bavaria issued a decree. From that day forward, all beer produced had to use just three ingredients: water, barley, and hops. Ever since then, for the last 500+ years, this edict has had an enduring influence on how German beer is manufactured. In accordance with astrological factors, I suggest that you proclaim three equally potent and systemic directives of your own. It’s an opportune time to be clear and forceful about how you want your story to unfold in the coming years.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In his book *Whistling in

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I do a lot of self-editing before I publish what I write. My horoscopes go through at least three drafts before I unleash them on the world. While polishing the manuscript of my first novel, I threw away over a thousand pages of stuff that I had worked on very hard. In contrast to my approach, science fiction writer Harlan Ellison dashed off one of his award-winning stories in a single night, and published it without making any changes to the first draft. As you work in your own chosen field, Aquarius, I suspect that for the next three weeks you will produce the best results by being more like me than Ellison. Beginning about three weeks from now, an Ellison-style strategy might be more warranted.

assessment of the astrological omens, you’re in a favorable phase to gain more power over your fears. You can reduce your susceptibility to chronic anxieties. You can draw on the help and insight necessary to dissipate insidious doubts that are rooted in habit but not based on objective evidence. I don’t want to sound too melodramatic, my dear Pisces, but THIS IS AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY! YOU ARE POTENTIALLY ON THE VERGE OF AN UNPRECEDENTED BREAKTHROUGH! In my opinion, nothing is more important for you to accomplish in the coming weeks than this inner conquest.

arch is Women’s History Month, or as Presidente Cheetolini might ask, “The who what now? Really? A whole month, huh?” Women’s contributions to cannabis, past and present, are—brace yourself— often overlooked, ignored or forgotten. And as this is a plant that 99.5 percent of us will actively seek out in its female form, that’s not acceptable. (Also making it not acceptable: patriarchy, misogyny, double standards regarding gender and many other things needing our attention.) In her book, “Tokin’ Women: A 4,000-Year Herstory of Women and Marijuana,” author Nola Evangelista (aka Cal NORML Deputy Director Ellen Komp), looks at 50 women connected in some form to cannabis, from ancient to modern. She starts with the Sumerian Goddess Ishtar who was associated with cannabis in the third millennium BC, which was “a time when both goddesses and plants were revered as healers…and up until the Semitic invasion in 2600 BC, women practiced the healing arts without restriction.” Women in ancient Egypt were hip to cannabis as a medicinal plant, with records of ancient medicine containing a mixture of ground cannabis and honey and “introduced” into a woman’s vagina during childbirth to “cool the uterus and eliminate its heat.” (That said, if you’re looking for me to suggest trying this, look elsewhere.) Fast forward to 1890, when Queen Victoria was prescribed cannabis by her personal physician to treat her menstrual cramps—so thank Queen V for that. There are now a number of cannabis products available to help women with PMS and painful menstrual cycles, in addition to cannabis infused “sensual lubes.” Cannabis was used for creativity and pleasure as well. In 1869, Louisa May Alcott has a character exclaim, “Heaven bless hashish, if its dreams end like this!” after eating too many hash-infused edibles. Speaking of women authors, Gertrude Stein’s partner, Alice B. Toklis, was well known for her pot brownies, and there’s good reason to believe they shared with guests such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Picasso when the women hosted their salons. Pot brownies were also the specialty of San Francisco resident Mary Jane Rathbun, aka Brownie Mary, who was arrested several times for her (really) baked goods in the 1970s. Her clients were primarily gay men, and when AIDS began impacting those men in the early 1980s, she began giving them out for free to help those afflicted treat their wasting syndrome, along with people undergoing chemotherapy. In 1992, she helped Dennis Peron open the San Francisco Cannabis Buyers Club, the

first medical cannabis dispensary in the United States. Women are still making history with cannabis, as a new survey by New Frontier Data and Women Grow shows. After surveying 1,700 people in the weed industry, they found “57 percent of people working in the industry said that they worked for companies where at least half the ownership were women. Furthermore, 30 percent of the survey participants said that in their companies, women were in all ownership positions.” It’s crucial to note that most of these roles were not held by women of color, so we still have a long way to go on that front. But it’s a great step forward from 2015, when a Pew research study showed that 36 percent of women held executive roles in the cannabis industry. These numbers are important for a number of reasons—none more so than this is an emerging industry which, unlike the majority of established industries, is not yet owned and controlled by men. So while there’s still sexism, mansplaining and other swell trends at work, women have a more level playing field in which to start and grow a business. Finally, cannabis use may also have helped these women reach such positions. Herb.co tells of a study by The Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, looking at 800 female cannabis users and compiling data on their intelligence, schooling level, smoking habits and lifestyle. The researchers concluded that women who consumed cannabis had higher IQs than nonusers, and “women who were 50 percent smarter than the average woman were more likely to consume cannabis.” So happy Women’s History Month to all the stiletto sister stoners—along with those favoring flats.
