This is a tough one. I am a bird feeder and have had an occasional cat climb the fence in my yard and stalk birds. It’s not frequent enough to trap him. But he hasn’t made a habit of this yet. I did run him off with some kind words about how he can’t eat my birds and to run along. It is the responsibility of the cat owner to control his or her pet, and that includes climbing fences and creating problems in the neighbor’s backyard. But how to enforce it with diplomacy is tough. These are our neighbors, not our enemies. It leaves those people in support of compliance with laws already in place in a difficult and awkward spot. It’s pretty unfair. —Julianne Safir Tiegs, via Facebook “I use a big, plush live trap to capture cats on my place. Then I hose down said cat with the garden hose, shout at it while rocking the trap, then turn it loose. That works for a little while, but, cats being cats, about two weeks will go by and they’re back at my place killing wildlife. That’s what outdoor cats do. They can’t help themselves.” So this guy tortures cats knowing that it won’t make much of a difference? I get the frustration and understand that roaming cats are a huge problem to wildlife, but this is just wrong. Personally, I wouldn’t care how soft my cage is--being yelled, trapped, shooken, and sprayed with water has a very Guantanamoean feel to it. —Ryan Palo, via Facebook My cat is indoor/outdoor and an avid mouser. He is far too well fed and lazy to hunt birds but he does enjoy the hunt and keeps the mouse population on our property to a minimum. Question: would he be subject to your water chamber torture or is it only the cats that hunt birds? I only ask because if we are going to call ourselves naturalists perhaps we should not pick and choose the species we deem to be worthy of protecting versus those deserving of control and punishment. —Molly Mauk, via

IN RESPONSE TO, “URBAN RENEWAL FOR CENTRAL BEND?,” 4/5 Tax Increment Financing is a way for business to use taxes only for itself - part of taxes paid are used only in the TIF district. This has the effect of short changing everyone else in that infrastructure costs that result from development but extend outside the TIF district are not funded from these taxes. A more equitable solution is to collect taxes into the general fund where they can be allocated for everyone’s benefit, and all can have a say. —Geoff Reynolds, via

One of the things that really needs to be addressed in all of these areas is the dominance of ‘parking lots’ across the board. Just go to Google maps and notice that most of the land in these areas goes to parking... check out the ill conceived Old Mill parking situation. NOT ONE parking garage. Someone argued that it’s more expensive to go to multi level which point I looked it up and indeed they were wrong. I consider multi level parking to be a major component in this puzzle. Density would imply density for parking, but apparently in Bend it does not. All and all this is an exciting position to be in as a city...the question remains will we throw our creativity together and find unique solutions or remain status quo and throw a building in among acres of parking spots. —Doug Cristafir, via

IN RESPONSE TO, “CONFRONTING THE DEATH CULT,” 3/28 As a visitor to Bend I only read this paper sporadically and Im not sure how much dissenting opinions are allowed... Re: B Soderberg’s article Confronting the Death Cult. The hypocrisy in this article took my breath away. America has developed a culture of death over the last 50+ years in which infanticide has been practiced, encouraged & glorified by the media, Hollywood elites, and progressives to the tune of some 60 million lives obliterated since Roe v Wade. Those that have died have no voice, and the aforementioned groups could CARE LESS. They are using these High School students to push a political agenda, period. They are more concerned about animal rights than human rights. Listen to young people? If you people have your way there won’t BE any young people left to listen to. —Nan Tybroski, via

IN RESPONSE TO, “IN THE RUNUP TO THE NEXT ELECTION, DON’T LET “MODERATES” OFF THE HOOK,” 4/5 I find this appeal to “moderates” almost laughable in light of recent events and coverage in the Source Weekly. Just last week one opinion led with the shrill and alarmist heading “Confronting the Death Cult.” It’s clearly disingenuous to call out the extremist right while giving the extremist left kid glove treatment. Those of us in the middle are sick of the BS from both party extremes but it’s the Democratic side that’s doing the most to alienate moderates right now. —Nik Johansson, via

Northeast neighbors are concerned about a change to city code, allowing for an extended stay hotel near their homes By Jaclyn Brandt


code change voted on by the Bend City Council has people in one northeast neighborhood challenging a new project. In December, the council voted to allow a new type of structure in the Medical District Overlay Zone, a 280acre area around St. Charles Medical Center. The proposal, made by a Portland area developer,  will allow extended-stay hotels in the zone. Hallmark Inns submitted the proposal to change the MDOZ, and a number of neighbors are ready to fight the project. The property, located on 2 acres on Conners Avenue, is zoned High Density Residential, which allows for only multifamily residential units. The proposed MDOZ would allow medical facilities to also be built on the land. Changing the rules in that overlay zone to allow for the extended stay hotels means project developers do not have to change city zoning—a much more complex process. The Bend Planning Commission reviewed the proposal and voted 4-0 to recommend it to the Bend City Council. “There was no zone change. Each individual property has their comprehensive plan and zoning designations and then there is an overlay over the top of that for medical use,” said Councilor Justin Livingston.  “What changed was the use table in the medical overlay zone. It’s very explicit about what is allowed, so what it didn’t allow was extended stay hotels.” There are a few hotels around 1 mile from the hospital, but none are considered extended stay hotels. The planning department considers the nearest extended stay hotel to be My Place Hotels, near the Old Mill. Hallmark Inns’ permit for the actual property has not yet been submitted, which means no signage is yet required. City officials said they met their obligations by posting the notice in a newspaper as well as sending a letter to the Mountain View Neighborhood Association—but that was only for the code change, not for the hotel itself. Neighbor Jim Connors, one of many fighting the project, explained, “When something like this happens there [should] be signage out here saying, ‘This property is subject to development. Here’s what’s planned. Here is when the hearings are. Here is how to make your public comments.’”  Connors said that is not their issue with the project. “We always thought that this would be developed, but it was in the medical district overlay zone, we figured it would be more doctor’s offices.” “The amendment happened without specific reference to this lot to allow the hotel, an extended stay hotel,” he added,

“and this neighborhood is going to pay the price for it.” The HOA is objecting on five different issues: livability, equity, accessibility, privacy and safety. They’re worried about property values, the profile of the people who will be staying in the hotel and increased traffic. Conners Avenue is just off 27th Street, with no light leading into the neighborhood. Neighbors are also concerned that there’s been no plan to make up for the increased traffic a hotel is expected to bring. The 24/7 nature of a hotel is also a main concern. “The noise doesn’t stop at the back fence when it makes noise,” Connors said. The neighborhood already includes PacificSource, Bend Dermatology, Whispering Winds Retirement and a daycare, but the residents are OK with those businesses. Connors explained, “They are good neighbors, they go home at 5:30.”  The City Council approved the Hallmark Inns proposal unanimously Dec. 20. Livingston said he voted because he felt it was reasonable for people with loved ones or outpatient care at the hospital to have a place to stay. “People come to Bend for medical care. Whether they’re from Burns or Lakeview or wherever. The eastern side of the state comes to Bend for major medical care,” he said. “That is where I thought that the extended stay was completely appropriate for a medical overlay zone.” According to Hallmark Inns’ proposal, the purpose of the hotel will be for those using the hospital, but the proposal did not include any assurances that those staying at the hotels would have any association to the hospital. When the permit for the hotel is filed with the city, the City Council will not necessarily be required to hear it. According to Livingston, for Type 2 permits, the staff at Planning Services can approve the request. However, “If it becomes something that is potentially contentious they might actually have a hearings officer hear it and judge on it. And then you can actually appeal that decision to the state Land Use Board of Appeals.” Connors said they’re waiting for the permit to be filed so they can see if there is anything to object to. Many homeowners remain worried about their property values. “People choose where they live based on those things, and that choice is being taken away here,” Connors said. “You can’t create equity for some person at the expense of another person’s equity. That is the city picking winners and losers and we don’t think that is a good idea.”  SW

Nuisance Trapping?




Photo above depicts a backcountry location in the Three Sisters Widlerness suffering from the low snow year.


n the Lower Deschutes River near Warm Springs, Alysia and Elke Littleleaf recall the effects of the drought in 2015, brought on by low snowpack. Warm Springs had to go on emergency rations for home water usage, recalls the pair, owners of Littleleaf Fishing Guides. Alysia also recalls blooms of green and blue algae, black spot disease and freshwater lice developing on redside and steelhead fish as a result of the low flow in the Deschutes River. She also believes Portland General Electric’s selective withdrawal unit—the existence of which is the basis of a lawsuit filed by the Deschutes River Alliance against PGE—combined with low flow, contributes to warming waters and algae growth, all creating a domino effect that means a loss of water clarity, degradation of spawning beds and smothering of fish and insect eggs through lack of oxygen. “These eggs are a great importance to the local and seasonal birds and reptiles,” explains Alysia, “who depend on the insects for food. During the last drought we didn’t even see swallows for two years in a row. Any local fly fisherperson knows the importance of using the swallows as an alarm to switch flies... It’s a great importance to keep nature balanced as intended.” This year, the swallows are back, and in spite of the threats that low snowpack can bring, the Littleleafs are forecasting one of the best fishing seasons in many years.

The Stable Deschutes River The Impact of Water Flow At first glance, the high desert might seem to be pretty desolate year-round—but the desert really does have seasons, and water resources cached in the winter are integral to sustenance in summer. The Deschutes River Basin is a smorgasbord of resources, and the lifeblood of these resources is the Deschutes River. In terms of the bigger picture, Jay Bowerman, a biologist for Sunriver Nature Center, is primarily concerned with the Pacific Northwest’s most influential threatened species: the Oregon spotted frog. “Contrary to what you might expect, years of drought and low water, like this year, tend to produce the highest hatching success and recruitment of new frogs into the population,” he says. Bowerman details how frogs have a propensity to lay their eggs in shallows near the edges of bodies of water. During high water years, the frogs move their spawn sites up and lay eggs in locales that de-water when the river level drops. Eggs and tadpoles can be stranded when water levels recede. These perched ponds tend to dry out during the summer, killing eggs and tadpoles. Although, he says it’s important to remember perching could happen in water one or two feet deep; for a frog, still constituting a relatively stable flow.

In its free flowing state, without dams and other engineered feats, the Deschutes River is recognized as one of the most stable water systems in the world. This is no small wonder when considering the seasonal flooding and subsequent havoc that remain a mainstay for rivers in the Willamette Valley. In the Deschutes River Basin, stability is largely attributed to the vastness of the recharge zone—the zone where water enters an aquifer—which becomes more prolific closer to the source. For the layperson, this means the water that fills the Deschutes River is collected in greater quantities farther upriver. Tracing the Deschutes River toward Wickiup Reservoir, or south, elevation is gained and the basalt rock formation which underlies it becomes thicker and wider. Think of casting a wider net and catching more fish. Like a giant funnel, the pores that formed during degassing thousands of years ago form conduits for the melt and meteoric rain water that eventually make it into the main river channel.   Tracing the Deschutes downriver, to the north, at lower elevation, the basalt formation tapers out and recharge lessens. The complex water communications network which underlies the Deschutes is massively dependent on snow melt. Thus, a below-average snowpack year can cast a shadow on the following summer. “When there is a below-average snowpack, like 2015

Locally, we might have limited recreational opportunities due to lower reservoir levels, and the natural flow on the Deschutes River could be lower through the winter, potentially affecting fishing and rafting. —Jeremy Giffin The Water Resources Department’s main mission is to directly address Oregon’s water supply needs, and to restore and protect streamflows and watersheds in order to ensure the long-term sustainability of Oregon’s ecosystems, economy and quality of life. As a result of reservoir shortfalls, Kyle Gorman, manager of the Water Resources Department’s South Central Region, thinks it’s possible that “irrigation water rights with the most junior priority dates could see a reduction in their supply.” He adds, “With the tremendous amount of groundwater influence on the flows of the river, the Deschutes is buffered fairly well against a single year of drought but will see longer-term effects due to multiple drought years.” Even in the worst-case scenario (which Central Oregon isn’t in, these water experts say), Giffin says, “Most people would not see a change in their ability to access water for daily living from a drought. Locally, we might have limited recreational opportunities due to lower reservoir levels, and the natural flow on the Deschutes River could be lower through the winter, potentially affecting fishing and rafting.” If spring rains don’t come, Gorman predicts about 40 percent of average flows on the Crooked River, and about 70 to 80 percent of average on the Deschutes River.

Fire Outlook for 2018 Even if the heavy rains do come, they may not stop the drying that precedes a heavy wildfire season. Bowerman, with the Sunriver Nature Center, links a low snowpack year to dryer soils. “With respect to the impact on soil moisture, early drying of the ground and understory vegetation is commonly reported as a contributor to an early onset of fire season,” he says. Every year, the National Interagency Fire Center issues the National Significant Wildland Fire Management Projected Outlook. The outlook, issued April 1, had the following prediction for the Pacific Northwest Region: “Normal significant wildland fire potential is expected for the Northwest through the outlook period through June followed by Above Normal significant large fire potential for south-central southeastern Washington and southern and north central Oregon for July.” In light of the disturbances last year’s fires caused for people in Central Oregon, it seems wildland fires and their associated hazards present the most urgent summer concern. Warm Springs guide Alysia Littleleaf says of last year: “Our own home was endangered to a fire that came within 100 yards. We had to cancel out a whole month of fishing trips due to the smoke and low water conditions. Many of our wild animals and horses died.” Alysa remembers the Deschutes River through the eyes of her ancestors during their weekly fishing excursions. “High in the desert, along the rivers, were the main food sources, gathered annually each season… Back when the water was so clean, you could drink freely with no worries of contamination or pollutants. The Indigenous people knew how to make a living in the harshest conditions with ease.” If Central Oregon’s ancestors could survive low-snowpack years and continue to uphold the highest standards of value and equilibrium with their landscape, hopefully Bendites will take a song from that book this summer. Experts, including Bowerman, recommend keeping dogs on a leash in delicate riparian zones along the river—helping to ensure that delicate species such as the spotted frog have a greater chance of survival. In addition, a visit to The Museum at Warm Springs to learn more about sustainability and resource management couldn’t hurt. SW

and this past winter, we see the source springs to the Deschutes River decrease,” says Jeremy Giffin, watermaster for the Oregon Water Resources Department’s District 11, which includes Bend. “This decrease in natural flow of the river limits our ability to fill the storage reservoirs in the upper basin. Because the Deschutes aquifer is vast and always recharging, it has the ability to weather one or two years of below average snowpack.” Giffin says this summer, Deschutes River Basin reservoirs will likely draw down faster than normal, but irrigators won’t necessarily feel an effect and water supplies should be normal-ish. “A patron to an irrigation district may see voluntary conservation measures enacted, or in an extreme drought, may have their yearly water allotment curtailed.”

New Depth

Hillstomp writes their most personal album yet, while still letting you rock the eff out By Anne Pick

Get ready to stomp your feet along with Hillstomp at The Commons on 4/13.

Hillstomp with Helga Fri., April 13 7-10pm The Commons 869 NW Wall St., Bend No cover

VOLUME 22  ISSUE 15  /  April 12, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY


hether you’ve lived in Bend for six months or 60 years, you may very well have gotten down to the slide guitar and bucket banging sounds of Hillstomp. The Portland-based, bluesy-rock duo has been performing in Bend for 15 years, and they say they love coming back year after year. Hillstomp’s string man, “Hurricane” Henry Hill Kammerer believes Central Oregon’s love of hometown heroes, Larry and His Flask, helped pave the way for a band like Hillstomp to make a name for themselves in Bend. “The tone was set for us with the Flask. We do that. We get carried away in a similar kind of way. They taught Central Oregon how to properly behave at a rock show,” Kammerer jokes. “You guys are freakin’ crazy,” Kammerer says. “Our first gig there, we played at McMenamins. I love Mcmenamins—we have pretty tight ties with them. But the room, it was lit up with fluorescent light; not even a real PA. It was a banquet room. We thought, ‘this is going to be the weirdest freakin’ gig of all time.’ But 200 of you whackos stepped into that room and tore it up.” If you haven’t heard from Hillstomp in the last couple months, it’s likely because Kammerer and his partner in rhyme, John Johnson, have been at work in the studio, recording Hillstomp’s first album since 2014. “It’s going to be so varied,” Kammerer believes that Kammerer says of the new album. “There is going to be some of the lyrically, the new songs heaviest, most rock tunes we’ve take inventory of the band ever written will be on this record. There’s sledgehammers and feath- members’ lives up to this er dusters on this record. The last point. Being in their 40s record come out in 2014. There’s now, he wanted to look been children had, we’ve run the back on what was and gamut of emotions in these four what will be. years and I think that’s going to be apparent on this record.” Kammerer believes that lyrically, the new songs take inventory of the band members’ lives up to this point. Being in their 40s now, he wanted to look back on what was and what will be. “It’s more personal in some ways than other records we’ve made before,” Kammerer says. “We couldn’t have gotten away with this record even 10 years ago, because I was unable or afraid to write from such a personal point of view. I’ve realized that Hillstomp is my bull horn to the world. I have to tell every story I can and get out every emotion that I can while I can. And John is flexible enough to adapt to everything I throw at him. Now, when I’ve written five-minute-long banjo songs, he’s able to find a drum beat.” As a band on the Fluff & Gravy Records roster, Hillstomp has access to a lot of musicians and resources, so for the new album, Hillstomp will feature instruments they’ve never used on a record before. Kammerer wrote a country song for the record, for which he thought a fiddle player might sound nice. With their connections, the band was able to make a call and get a fiddle player across town to record. While 10 of the 14 tracks on the yet-to-be-released record will be just Kammerer and Johnson, the addition of new sounds and players will bring new depth to the Hillstomp sound.  SW



Playin’ On Tulsa Time Just 1,812 miles from here By Richard Sitts




Alarm 58 includes, from left, singer Michael Divita, drummer Caleb Trowbridge, guitarist Mikel Lomsky and bassist Jon Fahr. Lomsky is holding a copy of the classic 1971 album, “Leon Russell and the Shelter People.” The band is headlining a benefit show for the Leon Russell Monument Fund April 20 in Tulsa, Okla.


ow exactly does a rock band from Central Oregon end up headlining a benefit concert in honor of Leon Russell in Tulsa, Okla.? This puzzle involves a lesser-known rock band from the 1980s, a chance meeting in New Orleans, a memorial for a legendary rock musician, and a historic concert hall that features a spring-loaded dance floor. The band is Bend’s Alarm 58. None of its members have ever been to Tulsa. The aforementioned ‘80s band is The Call, formed in Santa Cruz, Calif., in 1980. Two of The Call’s original members, including the late Michael Been (vocalist and guitarist) and drummer Scott Musick, were from Oklahoma. The band fostered a small but loyal following and played with some heavy hitters, including Peter Gabriel and Simple Minds’ Jim Kerr, and two members of The Band, Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson. Fans of The Call consistently comment about how underrated the band was. The benefit show, scheduled for April 20, is a fundraiser for the Leon Russell Monument Fund, which has a goal of raising $42,000 to pay for a permanent monument to honor Russell in the historic Memorial Park Cemetery in Tulsa. Best known for a stellar solo career of songwriting and tickling the keyboards, Russell was also a member of The Wrecking Crew, the group of top Los Angeles studio musicians that played behind dozens of famous artists. Russell, who was from Tulsa, died on Nov. 13, 2016, at 74. Hooking Up Last year, Alarm 58 guitarist Mikel Lomsky met Russell family friend, Knoel Honn, in New Orleans. Alarm 58 was opening a show for The Call, whose drummer, Musick, is also a friend of Honn’s. Alarm 58’s Lomsky and Russell’s friend Honn hit it off. “We started talking about the possibility of The Call and Alarm 58 doing a show in Tulsa,” Honn wrote in an email. “The more Lomsky

and I talked, we wanted to do a free show and get behind a worthy cause.” During a recent interview in the band’s garage studio in Bend, Lomsky said he asked Honn, “What kind of nonprofits do you have there?” Alarm 58 bassist Jon Fahr chimed in, “We don’t have to make a bunch of money. We just want to break even and play. Why don’t we help some charity?” The Leon Russell benefit will indeed be a free show, with donations and $100 VIP tickets available. On April 13, Lomsky and Fahr will leave Bend to drive the band’s equipment to Tulsa, where they’ll be joined later by singer Michael Divita and drummer Caleb Trowbridge. The show is being held at the famous Cain’s Ballroom. Its stage has been graced by the likes of Bob Wills, Hank Williams and the Sex Pistols. Also on the bill will be members of The Call. Honn wrote from Tulsa, “I can’t say enough nice things about Mikel Lomsky and Alarm 58, their willingness and eagerness to come all the way to Tulsa and show such support for such a music icon as Leon Russell. I know Tulsa and Leon’s family will take notice and appreciate the effort and support.” Lomsky adds, “It’s a huge opportunity for our little band from Bend.” He says he’s especially happy that the show is expected to help the fund surpass its fundraising goal. And one other musician who considered Leon Russell a hero and inspiration has jumped on this bandwagon. Elton John recently donated $5,000 to the fund, according to an article in the Tulsa World.  SW Leon Russell Monument Fund Benefit April 20, Cain’s Ballroom, Tulsa, OK All ages, Free $100 VIP Tickets Donations accepted

Winning firepit becomes public art for Redmond’s transit hub Oregon WinterFest has held a firepit competition at the February event for a number of years. New this year was the addition of a donation program that saw the winning artist gaining a $5,000 cash prize, and a local entity gaining a valuable piece of public art. This year, the winning creation, by Hunter Dahlberg of Orion’s Forge, has a new home in the Redmond Transportation Hub. The portions that burned with fire at WinterFest will be replaced with electrical light—but the piece will still stand to be a beacon, welcoming commuters as they come and go. This year’s entry was Dahlberg’s fifth into the annual event, and his second win. Building fire pits wasn’t high on his list of priorities before entering the competition some years ago, but he says



from mentoring.” BBBS offers group activities for mentors and kids, everything from white water rafting to rock climbing. Otherwise, free or low-cost activities are encouraged. “Something that you’d already be doing in your life. It’s just whatever you’re doing, just add a kid into that.” Kiyija says most of the kids are in the 8 to 10 age range and can include kids being raised by grandparents, those from a single-parent household or kids in foster care. Kiyija has her own little sister, a freshman in high school. Before they met, she says her little sister was considering dropping out of school, mainly because she was averse to doing a public presentation assignment. Kiyija helped her get over her fear and now she’s back on track in school. “Seeing the change in youth is so cool,” she says. BBBS serves the tri-county area of Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook counties. Last year the organization served

392 youth, about 75 percent of whom were male. Kiyija just passed her threeyear anniversary with the organization and has been in the director’s chair for six months. She started off with BBBS as an enrollment and match specialist, doing interviews with prospective mentors. “I feel that I know all about the program from doing it all.” Kiyija is a native Oregonian who considers Prineville home. She has a degree in international public policy and administration. Before moving to Bend she worked for two years in Uganda as co-director of the Hope for African Children Initiative, serving 100 kids a year. She and husband, Keneth, a certified nursing assistant at St. Charles Medical Center, have a two-year-old daughter. As fairly new homeowners, remodeling projects take up much of their spare time—along with golf, Kiyija’s favorite sport.  SW Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon

By Teafly Peterson they’ve since become one of his favorite things to build. Working with materials he often has on hand to lessen the cost of the build for him, he starts with a sketch and allows the design to emerge. Adorned with a dragon’s head guarding tables (for people to place a beer), this year’s winning piece, titled “Ancient Beacon,” is a call to the Middle Ages and the fantasy world of J.R.R. Tolkien that inspired Dahlberg growing up. The cauldron at the bottom of the piece holds the fire; the long torch attached to the top is the beacon. It can be dipped in the fire, and placed up high to be seen from a far distance. “I liked the idea of the upper light in the Old Mill—because of the terrain there—you could wander around and see it from far away,” explains Dahlberg. With over 50 different types of material and 200 hours of work, the piece was truly a labor of love.

Dahlberg has been blacksmithing for around 20 years, he estimates. It wasn’t until he opened his studio that he became serious about his work. Now with two employees, he often can be found creating custom pieces, including metal railings, iron gates, sculptures and even fire pits. One firepit has found a home at Timberline Lodge, a feat he considers a “feather in his cap.” Dahlberg also teaches blacksmithing at the Summit Arts Center in Government Camp and is the current president of the Central Oregon Metal Arts Guild. He sees the current interest in “craft” as an opportunity to teach people what actually goes into creating a piece. “One of the things we strive to educate customers is how time consuming it is and how tool intensive a seemingly simple form can be. Steel can be immoveable,” Dahlberg says. SW

some of the same troubles as the kids. “They get consistency,” she says, referring to children who may have people coming and going out of their lives. A mentor can be “one other person out there in the community who they can rely on.” Currently, there are about 41 kids, ages 6 to 16, on the waiting list, Kiyija says, but that number usually averages about 30 kids at any given time. Of those, about 80 percent are little brothers looking for mentors. There are now about six mentors on the waiting list, she says. Big sister mentors tend to wait longer for a good match. “We really try to focus on who is going to be a good match. It’s not just first come, first served.” Sometimes, couples apply to be a match for a youth. In these cases, Kiyija says, “They (kids) get to see positive relationships. There’s so many benefits.” Benefits spread both ways, she adds. “Time and time again I hear about how much they (mentors) get out of it. People like to give back. It makes them feel good. People often think of our program as where to send someone who’s acting out, or a single mom reaching the end of her rope. But there are so many benefits to mentoring. Everyone can benefit


“Time and time again I hear about how much they (mentors) get out of it. People like to give back. It makes them feel... good.”

Program Director, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon very child is just one positive adult away from being a success story.” Those are the words a mentor once said to Elysia Kiyija, program director for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon. They’re words she now lives by. “We’re looking for people wanting to be that adult,” she adds. Big Brothers Big Sisters has recently undergone a shift, Kiyija says, from desiring younger mentors to seeing a need for older mentors. The organization used to focus on attracting college-age mentors, but found they tended to move around more due to jobs, promotions and so on, she explains. So now, the focus is on landing volunteers 55 and older, who offer “longer and better” benefits, Kiyija says. BBBS asks for a minimum oneyear commitment from mentors who can offer six to 12 hours a month. The requirements are pretty basic: volunteers must have lived in the community for at least six months, must fill out an application and undergo a background check, and come in for an interview so staff can best match them with a little brother or sister. “A lot of people think that we’re looking for perfect people to come on and be a mentor, and that’s just not true.” In fact, Kiyija adds, people with imperfect past lives can be the best mentors because they may have lived through





Flood! Fire! Earthquake! “Disaster!” comedy brings it all By Elizabeth Warnimont



Elizabeth Warnimont

27 VOLUME 22  ISSUE 15  /  April 12, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

ennis Giacino, whose 2014 Off Broadway comedy “Disenchanted! The Musical” is currently in international production, is here in Bend to direct Seth Rudetsky’s similarly-styled “Disaster! The Musical,” opening at 2nd Street Theater this weekend. The Source Weekly asked Giacino what brought him and his partner, “Disaster!” Directorial Consultant Fiely Matias, to Bend to direct this wacky ‘70s farce. “I’ve been here to visit,” Giacino said. “I always heard so many great things about the town, how nice the people are.” Giacino has lived in Corvallis and still has family in Oregon, so last year, when he saw that 2nd Street Theater was showing “Disenchanted!” here, he brought Matias and his mom to see the show for his mom’s birthday. They all loved the Bend production, and approached Managing Director Sandy Klein at 2nd Street. “I told her if you’re ever considering doing a show called ‘Disaster,’ we would love to come over and direct it. We love the community here and we’d love to be involved—and she took us up on it.” Giacino explained some of the similarities and differences between “Disenchanted!” and Rudetsky’s “Disaster!” “‘Disenchanted!’ tackles some really hot-button topics – female empowerment, racism, sexual identity. It does it through this sort of zany, vaudeville humor. ‘Disaster!’ doesn’t really tackle big issues like that, though it has a similar sense of humor to it. It is about the 1970s disaster films, only put to music.” Klein predicts the play will have audiences singing along to the old chart-topping hits. Giacino thinks she may be right.

A Peek Inside the Humble Beet

By Lisa Sipe

The new market in the old Devore’s promises to keep some favorites, while offering some locally-sourced additions


n 1977, Devore’s Good Food Store brought the first organic produce to Bend. Obsessed with perfect produce, owner Bob Devore drove to Eugene every day for 20 years to make it happen. Bob and his wife, Mary, were fixtures in the community. Devore’s sold organic produce, grab-and-go food, bulk items and wine for 40 years. In 2017 the Devores decided to sell the building, built in 1918. Bob had a few health issues and the couple wanted to move to California. They sold to Aaron Talbot and Hailey Garside, a couple who had known the Devores for 30 years and had shopped there for many more. When the couple put in their offer to buy the building they wrote a heartfelt letter to the Devores about the experiences they’d had at the market. It would be easy to look at Devore’s as merely a piece of property, and to turn it into something shiny and new. It can’t be easy to operate a small shop when you’re competing with Newport Market across the street, among other recent additions to the grocery scene in Bend. Still, Garside said she and Talbot wanted “to keep the spirit of this neighborhood gem alive.” On the last day Devore’s was open, Talbot and Garside told the existing staff they could keep their jobs, if they wanted them. A few decided to stay, including Head Chef and Kitchen Manager Dillon Rudloff, Head Wrap Artist and Cook John Cobbs and Front-of-theHouse Manager Nancy Breniman. Expect a few changes Talbot and Garside are breathing new life into Devore’s. Garside said, “We know that it was special to many people. We plan to offer a similar place to the community, with some new twists.” First, the market will have a new name: The Humble Beet. The interior has been updated. Gone is the allwood, cabin-like interior, replaced by a bright, fresh coat of paint, a few new fixtures and pieces of equipment, as well as a new coffee bar. The space feels modern but the salvaged wood boxes and shelves retain a rustic vibe. The owners have also brought on Clint Rowan, owner of specialty roasting company Still Vibrato, to manage the coffee bar.


Dillon Rudloff, Hailey Garside, Aaron Talbot and Clint Rowan expect to have the Humble Beet open by the end of April..

Grab-and-go items, including new breakfast burritos, will rotate depending on what’s fresh and in season. Talbot and Garside are curating the products, wine and beer to offer items their larger neighbor doesn’t have. You’ll still be able to find organic fruits and vegetables, but they’ll be more local, including produce from Central Oregon farms. Talbot said he’s inspired by his brother, Nathaniel Talbot, who owns a certified-organic vegetable, seed and flower farm on Whidbey Island, Wash. In his vision for The Humble Beet Talbot sees a merging of organic farms and a commitment to sourcing ethical merchandise and reusable to-go products. A few things will stay the same During the transformation to The Humble Beet, Talbot and Garside had many community members inquisitively try to peek inside. A longtime patron left a note on the door, “I miss you so much. I miss your sweet workers, all Before


your deli items esp your dips and soups. I hope you will be open soon. Yours for 35 years, Maureen. P.S. Will you still have fresh eggs?!?” Maureen should know that she’ll still be able to find some of her favorites. The Humble Beet acquired some of Devore’s recipes and will still sell their wraps, Tuscan kale salad, beet salad, kale slaw, tuna salad, salsa, guacamole, caramelized onion dip and asiago jalapeno dip. Talbot said Maureen’s note —and the kind words from others—have helped him to stay motivated as they get the doors open. Talbot and Garside wanted to open a few months after they took ownership, but with unexpected delays and surprises inside the 100-year-old house, that date shifted. They expect to open at the end of April.  SW The Humble Beet

A Brick & Mortar for Dump City Dumplings Dump City Dumplings is expanding upon their popular food cart, opening a brick and mortar location. A little over three weeks ago owners Keith Shayon and Dan Butters heard that a space on Upper Terrace Drive had opened up. By April 1 they were ready to open the doors and start serving their Chinese-style steamed bun dumplings. Shayon said, “It’s still a bit of a whirlwind and we’re only just sort of beginning to even start having our bananas all bunched up, but we’re pouring cold drinks and we’ve got all kinds of hot dumps to go with them, so we figure we’ll give it all we got and see how we wind up!” You can visit in April, but they’ll be in soft opening mode.

the Source Be With You SCREEN May What to binge this week: Russian state security, killer robots and the genius of Donald Glover


By Jared Rasic

right now, or in the next few weeks, that it’s almost ridiculous. The year 2018 has already had several fantastic movies (“A Quiet Place,� “The Death of Stalin�) and shows (“Atlanta� and “The Terror�), but it’s not even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what we have to look forward to just in the coming weeks.

In Pod We Trust: “Eastern Border� has a nail-biter of an episode up right now about a series of bombings in Russia that helped surge Putin from a 2 percent approval rating to winning the election. There’s a ton of information here I wasn’t familiar with, and the episode is a fascinating look into Putin and Russian state security that will pin you to your headphones. A new podcast everyone should be checking out is “This is Normal,� which came out of the “Kids in Crisis� series from USA Today. It’s mostly young people talking about their mental health difficulties, but without cliche platitudes. Hearing about depression, anxiety and suicide attempts from the people who lived through it makes the show feel like an indispensable bit of therapy.

Bingeworthy: Ugh. There’s so much good stuff this month it’s crazy. This season of “Atlanta� has solidified Donald Glover as an artistic voice unlike anything that has come before, and last week’s premiere of the second season of “Legion� was just as mind-bending as the first. But the really exciting stuff is still to come. Netflix launches its next big thing April 13 with the 10-episode first season of “Lost in Space.� Gone is the kitsch factor of the 1965 series and instead we’re getting something that looks more like “Lost.� But in space. The effects look mind-blowing. The cast features the great Molly Parker and the even-greater Parker Posey. Get ready to see Will Robinson in some serious danger. More people watched the first season of HBO’s “Westworld� than “Game of Thrones,� so let’s hope the tradition continues with the Season Two premiere April 22. As mesmerizing as the first season was, by the end it just felt like a prologue to the real story of killer robots and scary Anthony Hopkins. Now that we’ve finally arrived at the fireworks factory, it’s time to see the world come down around these characters. Plus, based on the trailer, it looks like we’re gonna get a peek at Samurai World this season, so there’s really no downside. Offred’s story in “A Handmaid’s Tale� was finished by the end of Season One, so the Second (premiering April 25 on Hulu) will continue past Margaret Atwood’s source material into uncharted territory. I can’t even imagine things getting much worse for Offred, but I said that last season and was horribly mistaken. Still, the show is amazing and I’ll follow it down the darkest of paths. SW

The scope of “A Quiet Place” is laser focused, as co-writer/director/star John Krasinski isn’t interested in what’s going on outside the purview of this one family.

wasn’t really looking forward to seeing “A Quiet Place” in the theater. Don’t get me wrong, I was hyped for it, but it seems like for half the movies, the theaters are half-full with people treating the experience like they’re in their living rooms... answering a ringing phone, carrying on conversations or loudly reacting to something every two minutes. Many modern moviegoers don’t really allow the magic of cinema to really take hold. I knew going in that “A Quiet Place” was mostly a silent film, with American Sign Language being the primary method of communication. With it, the sound of someone eating popcorn had the potential to echo through the theater like the horrific sounds of an anaconda swallowing a grown-ass man. I needn’t have worried. I saw the film twice in two days and both audiences were sucked into every frame of the film for every second of its lightning-paced 90 minutes. At one point, a massive jump scare made someone in the soldout showing whimper in fear, causing the entire theater to let out a giant laugh of relief. In that moment I remembered why seeing a movie with a bunch of strangers was actually pretty fun. “A Quiet Place” follows a family in the very near future, struggling to stay alive while surrounded by creatures that kill anything that makes a sound louder than a clap. The family goes everywhere barefoot on

character-driven suspense and horror, not a socio-political look at how the world would handle an alien invasion. As original as the film is, Krasinski’s inspirations are also spread throughout the nearly perfect creature feature. It’s like he took his love of “Jaws,” “Signs,” and “Tremors,” and made the monster movie he’s wanted to see since he was a kid. There’s not a wasted second in “A Quiet Place,” with every minute of its runtime either dedicated to scaring the crap out of you, or creating lovely little character moments so we’re invested in the central family. There are a few little nits that can be picked, but overall, “A Quiet Place” not only shows that Krasinski is an emerging talent in the director’s chair, but that the horror genre is alive and well when placed in assured and capable hands. It also gave me faith in the theatrical experience by proving that it’s more fun to

get scared when surrounded by other people who are after the same thing. “A Quiet Place” is the real deal. It’ll make you jump and shiver and squeal…you know, if that’s your thing. SW

Where Bend streets got their names By Scott Stuemke Deschutes County Historical Society

These images show a bustling Bend in its early days.

laying out the streets. Not wanting to evoke the ire of Drake’s wife, her love of cow paths was incorporated into some of the streets that meander through downtown. Nicholas Smith was hired in 1904 to remove junipers, grade the freight road adjacent the wall and build a 6-foot-wide boardwalk. Hence, the origin of Wall Street’s moniker—though no portion of the wall remains today. Bend became the region’s commercial and cultural heart during the

Bend became the region’s commercial and cultural heart during the first decade of the 20th Century, leading to the establishment of boutique shops and first-class hotels. Bend had to be abandoned because of a same-named post office in Idaho, and it was ultimately shortened to Bend. Many of Bend’s early residents arrived from the upper midwest, especially Minnesota. Alexander Drake, along with many of Bend’s original families, arrived on the stage or came along with the freight. Drake came to Bend in 1903 and established his residence on a 3 ½ acre parcel along the east bank of the Deschutes River. To Drake’s dismay, cattle roamed freely throughout the region, so he employed local stone masons to build a wall extending south from today’s Greenwood Avenue, south to Franklin to keep the wandering grazers off his property. Drake, under the auspices of the Pilot Butte Development Company, filed the plat for Bend in 1904. New arrivals Nicholas Smith, John Steidl and Tom Tweet went to work for Drake

first decade of the 20th Century, leading to the establishment of boutique shops and first-class hotels. Early in the town’s development, tourism was touted because of recreational opportunities including fishing, canoeing, camping, mountain climbing and exploration of the lava tubes of the Newberry Volcano. The first “auto stage” with solid rubber tires arrived in town in 1905, boasting a max speed of 55 miles per hour. Gas sold for 40 cents a gallon, only available in 5-gallon cans. The town was electrified in 1910, following the completion of the dam and powerhouse that created Mirror Pond. The installed street lights were even brighter than those in Portland. Early buildings were constructed primarily of lumber. Foresight by civic leaders led to an ordinance dictating fireproof construction for all buildings within the business district in 1913.

Deschutes County Historical Society

Central Oregon’s masons were masters in the use of local stone for building supports and foundations, utilizing basalt and tuff, a consolidated, hardened volcanic ash. Growth was slow until the Hill and Harriman railroad wars in the Deschutes River canyon, with completion in 1911. After the death of E.H. Harriman, the bitter personal rivalry between Hill and Harriman ended, and James Hill drove the golden spike in Bend on Oct. 5, 1911. The end of the rivalry possibly contributed to the fact that the Oregon Trunk line didn’t extend farther south. The plans for the extension were to utilize the rail lines employed by the ShevlinHixon Timber Company. The Western Pacific railroad completed the extension from Bend to California in 1928. The names of 4th and 5th streets that paralleled the railroad were changed to Hill and Harriman sometime between 1912 and 1916. The timber industry contributed to primary growth, along with agriculture until the late 1970s. Recreation boomed with the development of Mt. Bachelor. The Dalles-California Highway (Highway 97) incorporated Wall Street as part of the state highway system. With the development of 3rd Street and the local business district, Hwy 97 was rerouted from downtown.  SW

ntering Bend’s downtown, I’ve often wondered about the origins of the street names there and in the mill worker’s neighborhoods. Wall, Hill, Harriman, Steidl, Tweet and many more are attributed to significant people who developed the town. Over the years, Bend has transformed from a tent and shanty village, occupied by a handful of families, into a burgeoning mecca for industry, commerce and recreation. The prize in central Oregon was the Ponderosa pine because of its commercial value. At the beginning, no real streets existed—just cow paths and a road from Prineville providing supplies from major metropolitan areas. In Bend’s infancy, freight and settlers made the trip from the Columbia River by a rail line that traveled from Biggs Junction to Shaniko. Goods and passengers transferred to wagons and stages, with teams as large as eight horses journeying through Cow Canyon to Prineville, out to the sparse settlements on the high lava plains and the northern Great Basin. A clapboard-sided post office and a tent sat at the southwest corner of Greenwood and Wall Streets in 1902. People suggested many names for the new post office, including two Native names: Quelah, meaning the beautiful valley, and Wychick, referring to a river crossing, later Farewell Bend.

Why Not Sleep Through Winter?

The antics of hibernating critters


By Jim Anderson the shelter of deep foliage, turn down their breathing and heart rate and wait it out. If the cold snap goes on for over 72 hours, however, they’re in big trouble. To hibernate, the animal going into that state must have a suitable layer of fat. The fat is metabolized to make food and (and water) for the animal’s s-l-o-wl-y circulating blood. Almost all the burrowing rodents we see running around Central Oregon in summer sleep through winter. Yellow-bellied marmots, as well as California, Belding’s, Merriam’s, Columbia and Washington ground squirrels spend up to seven months sleeping. They appear back above ground in March and have gone back to bed by late July. During those short five months above ground, they reproduce and eat, eat, eat. The Belding’s ground squirrel’s favorite food is dandelions, along with almost 100 percent other vegetation. If, however, they happen to come across insects, bird’s eggs, worms—or one of their dead brethren on the road—they will consume those resources as well. A bear will eat huge amounts of juicy berries and insect larvae to put on the fat reserves necessary to make it through winter. In some areas of the West, hibernation food for grizzlies is tough to find. If they can’t find enough pine seeds and army cutworm moth larvae, it’s curtains. Mammals need water to keep the blood healthy. During hibernation that’s taken care of with water metabolized out of the fat. “But...” you may ask, “what about elimination of waste water afterward?” Like most old men, I get up three times

Beldin’s ground squirrels wake up from their ODOT hibernation chamber. ODOT redid the highway, but the ground squirrels liked it the way it was, and moved back in for the winter, then made a new entrance way when they woke up. That was three years ago.

in the night and head for the bathroom— something a hibernating bear can’t do. Amazingly, the urea is recycled and turned back into protein, as packrats do. (Packrats—which do not hibernate, rarely drink water. They recycle water so many times the waste is almost pure urea; there’s so much in the urine that it coats the rocks near the packrat’s den almost pure white, instead of the characteristic yellow.) Which reminds me, don’t eat yellow snow! And don’t eat “desert licorice” either! While you’re poking around the lava rock habitat of packrats you may come across a tar-like substance that resembles licorice. It ain’t! It’s the chemical result of packrat urine on packrat scat. The black scat is altered by the chemicals in the urine into a solidified mass of tar-like (or licorice-like if you prefer) chemicals. From my experience, bats are the deepest hibernators of all. When I was studying and banding bats in the lava caves near Bend in the ’70s, I would often remove a bat carefully from its head-down perch on the cave ceiling, and then photograph, weigh and band it. It wouldn’t wake up. But you know, I did discover that Townsend’s big-eared bats wake up at least three times while hibernating in winter. I would often return to the caves where I had banded them, finding them

(TEL) The Difference:

sleeping in a different location than where I left them last. Turns out, they are so deep in sleep that oxygen in their blood drops to such a low level that lactic acid builds up, causing the bat to start breathing faster. The bat takes advantage of its physiological alarm clock and flies around to pump itself up with oxygen. After the oxygen content reaches the level necessary to keep the cells alive and healthy, the bat goes back to a new location in the cave and drops back into its hibernation state. Some of the most interesting hibernators, however, are butterflies and moths. While the Monarchs have migrated to Mexico and California to escape winter, our swallowtails and moths are wintering over as either eggs, or wrapped in the silk of their chrysalides and cocoons. Mourning cloaks and California tortoiseshells, however, winter over as adults. What’s neat is that in all stages, insects possess an antifreeze in their “blood” that protects them from freezing, even way below zero! I have developed a wintering and nesting box guide for this area. The East Cascade Audubon Society and I give them away. You can catch up with me to get one at at Birder’s Night, held at 6:30 pm on the third Thursday of the month at the Bend Environmental Center—or just send me an email. SW

he longer I live, the more I wish scientists would succeed with “induced hibernation,” especially for old duffers like me. I hate winter! Well, not really. I do enjoy going out with my family getting in the winter wood, something I’ve been doing almost all my life, but not a much as I did when I had less gray and more pep. When I was a kid we had a huge wood burning furnace in the basement of our New England farmhouse. Wood cutting started in October in Connecticut, with oak and elm being the dominant species used for keeping warm in winter. An old “misery whip,” a two-man crosscut saw, was the tool we used to buck up logs into firewood lengths. I can still hear my Uncle Harry on the other end of the cross-cut, saying, “Catsfur! I don’t mind you ridin’ that thing, but would you quit draggin’ your feet!” (“Catsfur” was the nickname he gave, because I was always asking: “What’s this or that fur,” and he’d answer, “Catsfur.”) Hibernation is a way that many mammals—and at least one bird—spend winter. (In the ’60s, Common poorwills—that spend summer in this neck of the woods—were discovered hibernating among the roots of willows along cut banks of streams near Sacramento.) The process puts the animal into a deep sleep where breathing and heart rate slow down to a hairline between life and death. Hibernation is not to be confused with the torpid state hummingbirds and swifts can drop into for short periods of time to escape a cold snap. Both are dependent on insects for food, so when a cold snap hits, the birds hide in

Age Demographics Will Open Up Housing Supply


homes to meet the needs of the younger generation. The report also says that 62 percent of the population growth in the next decade is expected to be in southern states such as Texas, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina, along with surrounding states where 42 percent of the U.S. population already resides. An abundance of jobs, affordable housing and warm weather are listed as main factors. The fourth demographic trend in the report is the trend of more affluent immigrants wanting to come to the U.S. from countries that are prospering economically, such as China and Brazil. Many are very concerned about the current state of housing in Central Oregon, but research like this is a reminder about the many factors to consider when seeking solutions to the problem. The aging of the population and demand for higher density, low-maintenance living quarters should be considered in zoning future development to meet those needs, and will hopefully open up additional existing housing for new households to form.

ased on a report from ATTOM Data Solutions, the aging of the American population will have a positive impact on the housing crisis. The report estimates that within the next decade, 38 percent of the U.S. population, or 66 million people, will be over the age of 65. Additionally, 25.8 million new households will be formed during the same period, with 13.3 million households moving to homes where the prior owner has passed on or has moved to assisted living. The aging of households is also expected to fuel demand for higher density and lower-maintenance living, which could include cottage and apartment communities as well as granny flats that allow people to be closer to children and grandchildren. The new tax laws that increase the standard deduction remove the advantages of owning versus renting for many lower-income households, which typically include retirees, so the move to rental housing by this group is expected to increase. New households moving to homes left behind by those who passed on or moved will likely result in the updating and modernization of those

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a man in my 60s. Looking back on my romantic life, I was always the guy women spent time with when their husband or boyfriend wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paying attention to them or while they waited for the right guy (status, power, money) to show up. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m good-looking, but I realize from reading you that I never had enough â&#x20AC;&#x153;mate value,â&#x20AC;? never mastering the essence of Cialdiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;scarcity principle.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a retired teacher. For 20-some years, I taught kids who had severe behaviorial problems. While parents, grandparents, and school personnel appreciated what I did, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold much long-term interest for women. My wife left me for someone with much higher â&#x20AC;&#x153;mate value.â&#x20AC;? I keep thinking that all of this could have been avoided if I had only chosen a profession with high-end â&#x20AC;&#x153;mate value.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Alone

evolutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of a billboard advertising health and fertility.) This means that womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mate value is higher when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re, say, in their early 20s. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why 22-yearold guys find 22-year-old women seriously hotâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as do the grandpas of those 22-year-old dudes. Meanwhile, a 22-year-old guy is essentially gum under the tire of a 32-year-old guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mercedes. Because women prioritize status and resources in a male partner, menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mate value tends to increase as they get older and more accomplished. Cruelly, womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mate value declines with age. On a more positive note, what also tends to go is the notion some youngAmy Alkon er women have that massive character flaws can be outweighed by a massive mansion. Women with a thing for bad boys may likewise come to see the excitement in a man who pays the bills the boring wayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;through online banking instead of online identity theft.

You were never going to be the guy for those women who pictured themselves spending lazy summer afternoons in Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vineyard (as opposed to Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Laundromat). However, your having a middlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;-bucks job instead of a megabucks one probably wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the root of your mate retention issues. It turns out that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to mate value than money and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;high-endâ&#x20AC;? job. In fact, evolutionary psychologist David Buss did a massive cross-cultural survey looking at what men and women want in a partner, and kindness topped the list for each. (Yes, kindnessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which was pretty much your job description.) Intelligence was another list-topper.  What wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on the lists at all? A partner whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pushoverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;always available, never any pesky boundaries.  Accordingly, you mention psychologist Robert Cialdini, whose â&#x20AC;&#x153;scarcity principleâ&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve referenced. Basically, we valueâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and wantâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what is out of reach and seems hard to get, not what seems hard to get rid of. That â&#x20AC;&#x153;hardâ&#x20AC;? truth might seem like reason for you to keep looking back with despair. However, within it is actually a message of hopeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an action plan. The reality is, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a better position than ever to land and keep a woman. As I often explain, there are sex differences in what men and women prioritize in a partner, with men valuing looks far more than women do. (Youth and beauty are

In short, there are plenty of women whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d want a guy like youâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;providing you mend your ways. Going back to that â&#x20AC;&#x153;scarcity principle,â&#x20AC;? what needs to become scarce is your willingness to be a convenient option instead of a priority. Though this has been your default stateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for decadesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to remain that way. As I explain in my new â&#x20AC;&#x153;science-helpâ&#x20AC;? book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unf*ckology: A Field Guide to Living with Guts and Confidence,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;your feelings are not the boss of you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what you feel; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you do.â&#x20AC;? In fact, by repeatedly acting assertively, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll actually rewire your brain. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to say the old rollover kitty behaviors go away. Unfortunately, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no giant neural eraser that comes around once a week like the trash guys the city sends to your neighborhood. What happens is that you transform your default behaviorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;how you behave when you react automaticallyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to acting like a man instead of like the male friend who braids womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hair while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re waiting for the guy they are having sex with. As for the practical steps to becoming the new bold you: Figure out what seems fair and right, and then say â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? to everything outside that box. (Generosity is good. Generosity that knows no bounds is a ladyboner killer.) Assert yourself even when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re scared to do it. Sure, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel uncomfortable, especially the first few times. However, you should slowly begin to do better with the ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and maybe even find love, despite it being clear that the only fur youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever get a woman would come with the rest of the hamster or the cat.Â

ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries statesman

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In the early 1990s, Australian electrical engineer John O’Sullivan toiled on a research project with a team of radio astronomers. Their goal was to find exploding miniblack holes in the distant voids of outer space. The quest failed. But in the process of doing their experiments, they developed technology that became a key component now used in Wi-Fi. Your digital devices work so well in part because his frustrating misadventure led to a happy accident. According to my reading of your astrological omens, Taurus, we may soon be able to make a comparable conclusion about events in your life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the fictional world created by DC Comics, the superhero Superman has a secret identity as a modest journalist named Clark Kent. Or is it the other way around? Does the modest journalist Clark Kent have a secret identity as the superhero Superman? Only a few people realize the two of them are the same. I suspect there is an equally small number of allies who know who you really are beneath your “disguises,” Gemini. But upcoming astrological omens suggest that could change. Are you ready to reveal more about your true selves? Would you consider expanding the circle that is allowed to see and appreciate your full range and depth?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Playwright Tennessee Williams once spent an evening trying to coax a depressed friend out of his depression. It inspired him to write a poem that began like this: “I want to infect you with the tremendous excitement of living, because I believe that you have the strength to bear it.” Now I address you with the same message, Cancerian. Judging from the astrological omens, I’m convinced you currently have more strength than ever before to bear the tremendous excitement of living. I hope this news will encourage you to potentize your ability to welcome and embrace the interesting puzzles that will come your way in the weeks ahead.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Are you finished dealing with spacious places and vast vistas and expansive longings? I hope not. I hope you will continue to explore big bold blooming schemes and wild free booming dreams until at least April 25. In my astrological opinion, you have a sacred duty to keep outstripping your previous efforts. You have a mandate to go further, deeper, and braver as you break out of shrunken expectations and push beyond comfortable limitations. The unknown is still more inviting and fertile than you can imagine.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Between December 5 and 9, 1952, London was beset with heavy fog blended with thick smog. Visibility was low. Traffic slowed and events were postponed. In a few places, people couldn’t see their own feet. According to some reports, blind people, who had a facility for moving around without the aid of sight, assisted pedestrians in making their way through the streets. I suspect that a metaphorically comparable phenomenon may soon arise in your sphere, Virgo. Qualities that might customarily be regarded as liabilities could at least temporarily become assets. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your allies are always important, but in the coming weeks they will be

even more so. I suspect they will be your salvation, your deliverance, and your treasure. So why not treat them like angels or celebrities or celebrity angels? Buy them ice cream and concert tickets and fun surprises. Tell them secrets about their beauty that no one has ever expressed before. Listen to them in ways that will awaken their dormant potentials. I bet that what you receive in return will inspire you to be a better ally to yourself.

Mejaski Choreography and Lay It Out Events presents: Theater in the Park — Jesus Christ Superstar


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In the coming weeks, I suspect you will be able to find what you need in places that are seemingly devoid of what you need. You can locate the possible in the midst of what’s apparently impossible. I further surmise that you will summon a rebellious resourcefulness akin to that of Scorpio writer Albert Camus, who said, “In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. No matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger -- something better, pushing right back.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In 1936, Herbert C. Brown graduated from the University of Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in science. His girlfriend Sarah Baylen rewarded him with the gift of a two-dollar book about the elements boron and silicon. Both he and she were quite poor; she couldn’t afford a more expensive gift. Brown didn’t read the book for a while, but once he did, he decided to make its subject the core of his own research project. Many years later, he won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discoveries about the role of boron in organic chemistry. And it all began with that two-dollar book. I bring this story to your attention, Sagittarius, because I foresee you, too, stumbling upon a modest beginning that eventually yields breakthrough results.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 20 B.C., Rome’s most famous poet was Quintus Horatius Flaccus, known to us today as Horace. He prided himself on his meticulous craftsmanship, and advised other writers to be equally scrupulous. Once you compose a poem, he declared, you should put it aside for nine years before deciding whether to publish it. That’s the best way to get proper perspective on its worth. Personally, I think that’s too demanding, although I appreciate the power that can come from marshalling so much conscientiousness. And that brings me to a meditation on your current state, Capricorn. From what I can tell, you may be at risk of being too risk-averse; you could be on the verge of waiting too long and being too cautious. Please consider naming a not-toodistant release date.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Luckily, you have an inventive mind and an aptitude for experimentation. These will be key assets as you dream up creative ways to do the hard work ahead of you. Your labors may not come naturally, but I bet you’ll be surprised at how engaging they’ll become and how useful the rewards will be. Here’s a tip on how to ensure you will cultivate the best possible attitude: Assume that you now have the power to change stale patterns that have previously been resistant to change. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): May I suggest that you get a lesson in holy gluttony from a Taurus? Or perhaps pick up some pointers in enlightened self-interest from a Scorpio? New potential resources are available, but you haven’t reeled them in with sufficient alacrity. Why? Why oh why oh why?! Maybe you should ask yourself whether you’re asking enough. Maybe you should give yourself permission to beam with majestic self-confidence. Picture this: Your posture is regal, your voice is authoritative, your sovereignty is radiant. You have identified precisely what it is you need and want, and you have formulated a pragmatic plan to get it.

VOLUME 22  ISSUE 15  /  April 12, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States. He wrote one of history’s most famous documents, the Declaration of Independence. He was an architect, violinist, inventor, and linguist who spoke numerous languages, as well as a philosopher who was knowledgeable about mathematics, surveying, and horticulture. But his most laudable success came in 1789, when he procured the French recipe for macaroni and cheese while living in France, and thereafter introduced the dish into American cuisine. JUST KIDDING! I’m making this little joke in the hope that it will encourage you to keep people focused on your most important qualities, and not get distracted by less essential parts of you.
