May Election Endorsements Vote Yes on Measure 9-118 - City of Bend Directly Elected Mayor

WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / April 19, 2018 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

4

You don’t have to be a population scientist to know that Bend has grown exponentially since 1995, the last time the city amended its charter. Back then, the city had roughly 30,000 people—far fewer than the 91,000+ reported by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2016. At that time, it might have seemed perfectly reasonable to allow a group of city councilors to collectively lead the city, and to act as cultural and political ambassadors for Bend. In the much-larger city that Bend has become, Bend needs a strong leader who can set the tone and establish a vision for the city. As the measure’s language states, switching to a system that includes a mayor directly elected by voters—as opposed to having the mayor selected by fellow councilors, as it stands today—establishes a “political head of the City government.” As Bend’s influence continues to grow state- and region-wide, the city needs that political head. Vote Yes on Measure 9-118.

Vote Yes on Measure 9-119 - City of Bend Remove Council Member Pay from Charter Bend’s seven city councilors currently earn a stipend of $200 a month (plus expenses) for the work they do in service of the city. While one could argue that the position is done in the spirit of community service, it’s currently a “service” that only those with means can perform. By removing the issue of council member pay from the City Charter and allowing pay to be instead decided by Council ordinance, we can bring the notion of increasing councilor pay to the table. If that happens, the pool of candidates has a better chance of opening to those who might represent a lower-income demographic—which sorely needs a voice in Bend. This is not going to be someone’s full-time job, with full-time pay, anytime

soon—but we believe that in the interest of economic equity, councilors should be paid more. And just in case you’re concerned, understand that current councilors would not be able to vote themselves a raise. Under the provisions of the measure, current councilors would continue to earn the $200 a month until the end of their terms. Vote Yes on Measure 9-119.

Vote Yes on Measure 9-115 - City of Bend Five-year Fire and Emergency Services Levy Renewal If you need any convincing that the fire levy is a benefit to the community, consider this stat: According to Fire Chief Larry Langston, the initial levy, passed in 2014, allowed first responders and fire personnel to lower response times from a whopping nine minutes to an average of five and a half minutes. In cardiac events, that’s critical time that can save lives. Resuscitation rates were about 22 percent for cardiac events in 2012, compared to 70 percent in 2016, Langston told the Source in December. To maintain the level of service that has resulted in these marked improvements, vote yes on Measure 9-115.

Vote Yes on Measure 9-116 Deschutes County Rural Fire Protection District #2 Five-year Five and Emergency Services Levy Renewal As is the case for the City of Bend’s fire levy, the levy that would be assessed for the Deschutes County Rural Fire Protection District under this measure will also help to maintain the level of service we currently enjoy in the rural parts of the county. Both measures provide for a local operating levy that translates to 20 cents per $1,000 of assessed home value for five years—a negligible amount for an important service in the interest of public safety in the community. Vote Yes on Measure 9-116. SW

City of Bend

Scott — After reading your letter, we too wanted to know about the city’s rules on this, so we asked Economic Development Director Carolyn Eagan. According to City Code, Chapter 6.20.000, “Method of Parking,” “no person shall stand or park a vehicle other than within a single marked space, both width and length, unless authorized by the City.” Confused? Us, too—but what it means is, if your vehicle is longer than the markings on the space, it’s too long. Eagan did say, however, “My direction to Diamond Parking (as of mid-November 2017) is to cite for exceeding stall length only in cases where vehicle in the travel lane must pull into the other travel lane to get around a parked vehicle (or items on a parked vehicle like irrigation pipe, a bike or a

Bend’s war on pickup trucks downtown is still in full swing. Despite contrite assurances from economic development director Carolyn Eagan and city manager Eric King, the truce of last fall has been unilaterally rescinded. Last fall, warnings, then $50 citations began appearing on windshields throughout the downtown core, creating an uproar among those trying to spend money there. “Go away” was the message. Adding insult to the financial injury was that nothing had changed – no new city code, ordinance or rule. But those who parked on Bond St. on Thursday got a ticket on Friday for the same thing. No signs, no public notice, just warnings. And that, after news articles, editorials and a lot of irate emails to city councilors, being called on the carpet by downtown business owners and The Bulletin, city officials promised to halt the arbitrary money-making scheme, refund fines, proceed with caution, be more forthcoming, and give clarity to an issue that is vital to downtown’s economy. Or did they have their fingers crossed behind their backs? Because now that the dust has settled they are right back to their old ways, nailing unsuspecting drivers and without a single promised change in place. We need clarity: so many feet long, so far beyond the white line. Better still, paint lines that make sense. Put it on signs, the city’s website, issue press releases, hand out warning tickets and send smoke signals. Because right now, it is Groundhog Day all over again. Same wacky enforcement action, same cloudy interpretation, same discriminatory citation strategy. —Scott Linden

IN RESPONSE TO, “HOTEL DEBATE,” 4/12 As someone who has had to travel frequently, for over a decade now, for my medical care (and my mother’s when she had to fly for cancer treatments,) I cannot express how thankful and relieved I would have been if there had been hotels by the hospitals. It makes it incredibly, horridly, difficult to get the care you need, at the place you need it, if you are sick and stressed and feel like crap but still need to figure out how you’re going to manage to get back and forth in a town that you don’t know that well (as well as trying to gauge if you even have the energy and lack of pain to even do it at all.) It’s just one more nightmare on top of another nightmare when the place you’re staying isn’t next door. The neighborhood will have concerns I don’t know about but I truly wish every hospital had a hotel next door. —Monica Helms, via Facebook This hotel is slated to be built adjacent to 27th which has no traffic signaling except for Neff. Even now it is a challenge getting across this very busy street via Conners to the hospital “next door” (about 1/2 mile away to the entrance) during weekday business hours. The article mentions the two hotels close by, but not that a third hotel being is being built behind Wilco - which is also an extended stay hotel. This property

was already zoned for this use and is not in a residential neighborhood. And don’t be fooled that this hotel will be filled to capacity exclusively with those visiting patients in the hospital or convalescing. Hallmark will book their rooms - first come, first serve - to anyone who has the means to pay for it. They want in on the Bend property market (east side = cheaper) and convinced the Planning Commission and Council that this type of hotel is needed “for hospital patients and their families” - and they bought into it. —Sue Hintz Henderson, via Facebook

Electric cars gain traction in Bend, will infrastructure follow? By Keely Damara

I

f you’ve noticed a few more Teslas or Nissan Leafs on the road recently, don’t be too quick to assume that they’re all visiting from California. According to the Oregon Department of Transportation, last year Bend caught up with the state average for number of electric vehicles purchased, with electric vehicles making up 2 percent of all vehicles sold. New electric vehicles are capable of traveling longer distances on a single charge than the first generation—and simultaneously becoming more affordable. Tesla released its Model 3 in 2017 starting at $35,000, competing with the similar price point of the Chevy Bolt EV and a growing number of other manufacturers. It’s not a bargain basement price, but it certainly creates an opportunity for middle class individuals to own an electric car. To top it off, maintenance is

often cheaper than a typical combustion engine because electric cars have fewer moving parts. Oregonians are fortunate enough to have access to the West Coast Electric Highway, making it a breeze to travel up and down the coast, often without having to wait longer than 30 minutes for a full charge at a fast charging station. That’s if you have the right plug. For some time, the CHAdeMO style plug was the standard for vehicles capable of quick charging—and still is for most Asian car manufacturers. However, as anyone with an Apple device can attest, the introduction of a new standard or proprietary ports can cause some growing pains. “Unfortunately, all of the European and U.S. manufacturers have recently adopted different standards called CCS and so we are actively looking for

funding to upgrade those stations so that they’ll be able to support the full range of EVs that are on the road,” said Andrew Dick, automated and electric vehicles advisor at ODOT. There are also private companies installing fast charging stations as well, including Tesla who uses its own proprietary plug. Remember when Volkswagen got into some trouble for installing “defeat devices” in their cars, programmed to pass emissions tests—and then lied about it? Well, a partial civil settlement with the EPA in 2016 required Volkswagen to invest $2 billion in ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) charging infrastructure across the U.S. The Volkswagen-funded Electrify America was created to meet this goal—and Oregon has already benefited from the first cycle of the program.

“[Volkswagen] identified both Portland and Seattle as early opportunities for deployment—to sort of target metro areas—and they also identified I-5, I-90 and I-84 as some of their early corridor charging targets,” said Dick. Gov. Kate Brown’s 2017 executive order 17-21 set goals to encourage the widespread adoption of electric vehicles in Oregon to reduce greenhouse gasses and address climate change—including increasing registered EVs in Oregon to 50,000 by 2020. That’s more than three times the current number of registered vehicles in the state, which is just over 16,000. Brown, ODOT and other agencies in Oregon have proposed more key areas in Oregon for Electrify America to invest in during its Cycle 2 of funding projects. In an investment proposal jointly prepared by Washington and Oregon dated March 1, Bend is noted as a tourism destination that, if developed, would be a “high utilization charging” opportunity. In other words—lucrative for Volkswagen. The state of Oregon is preparing for an increase in EV infrastructure needs. In 2017, Oregon adopted new building codes requiring 5 percent of parking spots in new construction to be ZEVready for cities with more than 100,000 people. Bend isn’t quite there yet, but it’s looking like it quickly will be. Bloomberg New Energy Finance estimates that more than half of all new

Are You Really Recycling?

Just because you throw it in the Blue Bin doesn’t mean it won’t end up in the landfill By Chris Miller

T

ake a drive around Bend every other Thursday—or whatever day recycling happens in your hood—and you’ll see it: streets lined with the big Blue recycling bins, overstuffed like it’s the 26th of December, plastic bags blowing down the street from the spring winds. Curbside recycling got its start in Oregon in 1983 in reaction—ironically—to a shortage of space in landfills, according to Oregon.gov. The Opportunity to Recycle Act stated that cities over 4,000 in population had to provide monthly curbside recycling service. The laws were strengthened in 1991, with the passage of the Oregon Recycle Act, which broadened recycling requirements and added activities to develop markets for recyclable materials, Oregon.gov says on its webpage. The idea behind recycling is an honorable one, in fact, people across the country have been able to live completely off the landfill grid—recycling everything they throw out—but China’s recent decision to no longer be the “world’s garbage dump” may have serious repercussions for the local recycling

community, and the world. In 2017, China filed with the World Trade Organization to stop importing 24 kinds of solid waste by the end of the year. In 2016, according to the Institute of Recycling Industries, China imported $5.6 billion in scrap commodities from the U.S. alone, 13.2 million tons of scrap paper and 1.42 million tons of scrap plastics. Originally, China took most of the world’s recycling to supply its manufacturing boom, but has put a halt on what Chinese officials have called, “foreign waste,” according to a story on NPR. In the same article, Rogue Waste Systems, a Southern Oregon company that collects recycling from curbside bins, said there are always nonrecyclables mixed in, like rolls of linoleum, gas cans and a surprising number of knitted sweaters, the article said. All of this jams up machinery and makes the hand-sorting of recycling materials a real chore. According to Susan Baker of Bend Recycling and Garbage Company, Bend’s recycling is picked up from the curb by either BRGC or Cascade Disposal, then it’s baled at Mid Oregon Recycling, then

shipped to a processor—usually either Pioneer Recycling or Far West Fiber, both located in the Portland area. “Our message to customers is to ‘Recycle right’ and only put in what is approved on the recycling guide,” Baker told the Source. “If in doubt, leave it out. The better the quality of the material, the more sustainable these (recycling) programs will be.” Denise Rowcroft, who works at Bend’s Environmental Center, has advice for Central Oregon residents who recycle: “It’s a wildly held belief (that if plastic has a recycling stamp on it, they can throw it in the blue bin no matter what) and it stems from the origins of recycling programs, which used to refer to certain numbers. However, you will find that recycling symbol on virtually all plastic material—it is a plastic industry invention to designate different types of plastics, [but] it doesn’t

mean it is necessarily recyclable.” “Here in Central Oregon, like many communities in our state, accept ‘plastic bottles, tubs and jugs.’ When people aren’t sure and they toss it in the bin, they are essentially being a ‘wishful recycler,’ which over time has actually contributed to this whole China situation.” In the NPR story, Rogue Waste Systems said it had stacks of orphaned recycling bales in its warehouse and the parking spaces have been taken over by compressed cubes of sour cream containers, broken bottles and junk mail. And, now that these items have no place to go in the marketplace, guess where they will end up? Correct, right back in the place our 1983 legislation attempted to mitigate: the dump. “Recycling is important because it reduces the amount of virgin material being extracted/harvested from somewhere on our earth to make stuff,”


reason to use it,” said Abel. “You would just wake up in the morning and your car would be fully charged. The other thing is you don’t even have to have a Level 2 or fast charge station in your garage.” Still, as electric vehicles become more popular—and cheaper—the need for fast charging stations readily accessible in town will increase, as plugging into an outlet isn’t necessarily an option to those living in apartments or condos. Gillian Ockner, a senior policy analyst for the City of Bend, was asked by ODOT to put together a list of opportunities for Volkswagen to consider. Ockner, along with Visit Bend—an economic development organization— reached out to hotels downtown and in the Old Mill district to see who’d be willing to throw their name in the hat as being possibly interested in installing EV charging stations on their property. Ockner said the city doesn’t have an EV infrastructure plan yet, but EV charging stations at multi-family buildings has been a part of the conversation. “It’s something that needs to be considered as part of our transportation planning process and has been added to the list some time ago as one of the things that needs to be considered,” said Ockner. “As well as our parking work in the downtown area—but we haven’t arrived at a plan yet.” If Volkswagen decides to invest in charging stations in Bend, installation would begin in July 2019.  SW

cars sold worldwide will be electric by 2040. ODOT has installed a network of 44 DC fast chargers across the state, each paired with a Level 2 charger that takes longer to charge—taking 8 hours to charge a Nissan Leaf from empty versus 30 minutes for a Level 1 fast charger. According to plugshare.com, there are 16 charging locations in Bend, two of which are fast chargers. It can be tricky planning a trip out of town depending on the model of electric car you own and where you are headed. Henry Abel works in community outreach for Pine Mountain Sports in Bend.

e l b a n i a t s u S e r u t l u c i r g A in the t r e s e h g i D H I t was a gray and overcast morning when I arrived at Windflower Farms just east of Bend. With no cell service— and no sign to reassure me that I had arrived at the correct farm—I pulled up a gravel driveway to a small house nestled next to a barn. I could hear chickens in the distance and walked over to a nearby barn to find someone who could give me directions. A horse eyed my approach, gave a loud snort and trotted toward the barn—seemingly to sound the alarm that there’s a visitor. Gigi Meyer, a small, sprightly woman with salt and peppered red hair, smiles at me through a face of freckles. The 59-year-old has owned Windflower Farm since 2005, expanding in 2009 when her father bought a farm north of her land. “Between the two farms we have a really biodiverse operation,” says Meyer. “We’ve got flowers, we’ve got veggies, we’ve got fruits, we’ve got laying hens, we have dairy goats and horses.” Meyer has been a farmer for 13 years, but has been practicing horticulture for over 30 as an avid gardener. She grew up in Portland, but traveled the world for many years as a journalist and also worked as an artist and horse trainer in her years before the farm. “When I was little my dad had a cattle ranch in eastern Oregon,” said Meyer. “Those were the happiest memories of my childhood, riding horses through

the sage brush and through the wilderness.” The windflower, also known by its Latin name, “Anemone,” is considered good luck and is thought to predict rain by closing its petals. Meyer says she loves the simplicity of the iconic flower’s shape and, like seeds carried by the wind, she feels that she was guided by some force of nature to take root on the 20-acre farm in Alfalfa, 15 minutes east of Bend.

Biodiversity

Meyer and her small four-person crew grow organic fruits and veggies, but they also cultivate flowers, raise milk goats and laying hens, board horses and even host a beehive in the summer months. “Biodiversity is definitely our motto,” says Meyer. “We’re definitely trying to mimic nature’s ecological systems where various components work together to make this really healthy ecosystem.” The laying hens and milk goats at Windflower Farm are certified Animal Welfare Approved, a label with strict guidelines dictating sustainable farming practices and a high level of animal welfare from birth until death. It’s the only certification that requires farm animals to have access to pasture land. The Saturday I visited the farm, Meyer’s crew was covering their new

greenhouse with rolls of plastic. It wasn’t windy, a rarity she says, making it an opportune time to finish building the new hoop house funded in part by a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program. The shelter will help extend the growing season by protecting plants from severe weather. “The greenhouse growing is so important. The only way we would have a harvest this next week is because we have greenhouses and it also allows us to grow things that we couldn’t otherwise grow,” says Meyer. “We cannot grow enough heirloom tomatoes—everybody wants them.” Gia Matzinger works on the farm as florist, growing, cutting and arranging the flowers. Her overalls are covered in dirt and she’s carefully pulling weeds from her flower garden. Matzinger has bounced around all over the west, attending college in Washington with a brief stint living in Southern Oregon. Then three years managing a farm in Pescadero, California, before finally making her way to Central Oregon to work for Windflower Farm. “It’s sort of an art form in its own that involves some level of science and environmental science. It’s just really dynamic work—you never know what’s going to happen next,” says Matzinger. “I especially love the flowers because it’s got an element of art and getting to

use your creative side.” The flowers will be planted adjacent to rows of veggies and other crops, creating biodiversity that is good for the health of the soil and the microorganisms that call it home. They rotate their annual crops to replenish the soil along with cover cropping—plants used to manage soil erosion during the winter months. Their approach is entirely different than mono-cropping, popular with large corporate farms which involves planting and cultivating a single crop on the same land year after year. This depletes the soil and invites insects that are often fought off with pesticides. “You end up having an unhealthy ecosystem in a monocrop,” says Meyer. “It’s not mimicking nature, there is no mono-cropping in nature. There’s always relationships going on.”

Community Supported Agriculture

Much like the diverse ecosystem she has cultivated at the farm, Meyer values the array of relationships she has created throughout her 13 years operating Windflower Farm. “Relationships, that’s part of the sustainability factor for me is to find clients who I can depend on, who can depend on me,” says Meyer. Windflower Farm runs a small CSA,

Rosie Red Choy, Tah Tsoi, mixed radishes and garlic were just a few early harvest selections that Linde picked up in his morning visit to the farm. “I try to grab what’s available right away, because I know Brasada uses her, too,” said Linde. “It’s kind of like whatever chef jumps on first and sees what’s available gets the pick.” Pronghorn has partnered with Windflower Farms for years, but when Linde joined the culinary team in 2012 he made it a point to support Meyer through special plates utilizing seasonal vegetables. “She’s really been great as far as committed to the authenticity of her practice and it’s been awesome to be able to see the results in the product that she

fer, guides them through picking loose stems to arrange themselves. Windflower Farm also runs a small flower CSA, with regular restaurant clients like Jackson’s Corner in Bend ordering fresh flowers to garnish their dining tables. Their flowers are currently sold at Newport Market and will soon be available at The Humble Beet opening in Devore’s old location on Newport Avenue. Matzinger says that they are going to try attending the farmers market this year, selling their organic veggies, flowers and farm-fresh eggs. “We’re interested in maybe offering the option for folks to get a custom-made bouquet,” says Matzinger. “I would be there and put something together based on what the customer is liking or feeling, depending on what kind of mood they’re in.” Kevin Linde, the executive chef at Pronghorn, visits Windflower Farm

You just kind of season it, dress it and let it sing itself.” Meyer’s back isn’t what it used to be and she doesn’t perform as much manual labor on the farm like she used to, she says. As she gets older and thinks about the future of Windflower Farm, she hopes to mentor a young farmer to take over for her—perhaps even turn the farm into an educational space for students to learn about sustainable farming practices. “I feel like I’ve created this thing,” says Meyer. “It feels like a painting that’s years in the making and I’m invested in it emotionally and physically.” If you’re interested in signing up for Windflower Farm’s veggie, flower or egg CSAs, visit their website at www.windflowerfarmbend.com.

Their on-demand CSA is more popular, however, as it doesn’t require a weekly commitment. After the chefs she has partnered with at various restaurants pick out their harvest for the week, Meyer calculates how many more totes she can put together with a variety of produce and sends out the list to her 100 or so clients. “The clients that we have become such loyal customers of the farm. It’s a whole piece of understanding—the value of what they’re buying, at a value that we’re protecting this landscape and we’re protecting everything that comes to this farm,” said Meyer. “All the bees and all the birds and the soil organisms.” Matzinger arranges floral bouquets for bridal parties or if they’d pre-

? g n i p a c s i r e s i X t a h W Defined by the New Oxford American Dictionary, xeriscape means, “a style of landscape design requiring little or no irrigation or other maintenance, used in arid regions.” According to the City of Bend’s waterwisetips, it means focusing on efficient irrigation practices and grouping plants together with the same water requirements, with an emphasis on conserving all natural resources and proper plant selection. by Chris Miller

Planning and design

In planning and design, it’s recommended to identify the characteristics of your yard, the different use areas, determine the water use zones to put like plants together, then map out your plan.

Soil Improvement

Soil improvement recommends having your soil tested by the local extension agency—in Bend’s case, Oregon State University’s extension office located in Redmond at 3893 Airport Way. Their phone is 541-548-6088 and they are open from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday. The purpose of the soil test is to see how to improve it, which generally begins with a deep rototilling—at least 6 inches down—to break up the compacted ground, then adding organic matter such as compost or shredded leaves to help improve penetration. Then, after your soil sample results come back, add amendments as suggested.

There are seven principles of xeriscaping, according to wateruseitwisely.com: –– –– –– –– –– –– ––

Planning and design Soil improvement Practical turf areas Efficient irrigation Mulch Low water-use plants Appropriate maintenance

Practical Turf Areas

Practical turf areas don’t mean ripping every square inch of lawn from your yard, but instead making it a focal point or giving it a function, such as a play area for young children. Consider this when thinking about grass and your water bill. In Bend, it costs about $10 every time you turn on the sprinklers to water half of the average lot in Bend. (See insert for more information) Replacing rarely-used turf areas with water-wise groundcover or other drought-resistant plants will decrease runoff and make your yard more interesting than a sea of green—or brown in the winter.

Efficient Irrigation

Efficient irrigation is the heart of xeriscaping. Broken or leaking pipes are a leading cause of home water waste. Fixing leaks can save 10 gallons of water per minute, per leak, according to Bend’s waterwise. Mismatched sprinkler heads in specific watering zones can cause uneven watering and lead to increased runtimes, wasting water. Perhaps the best way to have efficient irrigation is to adjust it seasonally. Waterwise recommends irrigation should only run at peak volume during June and July. In April and September, it should run at 50 percent; in May at 60 percent; August at 80 percent and October at 30 percent. Also, pay attention to when you run the sprinklers: the best hours are 7pm to 6am. From 9am to 5pm, you shouldn’t water unless you have new sod, seed or plantings due to winds and temperature causing quick evaporation.

Average lot size in Oregon .14 acres or 6,098.4 square feet per mynorthwest.com

Mulch

Think of mulching as sun block for plants, wateruseitwisely says. Only a few inches can greatly help keep moisture in the ground and protect plant roots from too much heat. Plus, mulch blocks the spread and growing of weeds. Before you mulch, wateruseitwisely recommends you remove all the weeds early in the year, before they get entrenched. Start with a thin layer and work it into the soil. Then add 2 to 4 inches on top on the entire root zone of each plant out to the leaf canopy. When adding mulch around shrubs and small trees, be careful to keep the mulch pulled back a few inches to prevent rotting the trunks.

Low Water-Use Plants

There is a myriad of low water-use plants available. The City of Bend’s water conservation page has a link to low-water plants, but here’s a small list of some that can turn your xeriscaped yard into a color palate. Serviceberry, Japanese lilac and Amur maple trees are beautiful, low-water ornamental trees. Most shade trees are pretty thirsty, but the thornless Honey locust is one low-water variety. Evergreen trees—for those who want to leave the rake in the shed—use very little water, especially the ever-present ponderosa pine and the many species of juniper. For bird lovers, the trumpet vine is a low-water vine that blooms in the summer with beautiful flowers that hummingbirds flock to.

Appropriate Maintenance

Now that you’ve gotten dirty xeriscaping your yard, wateruseitwisely has a few tips to keep it strong and beautiful. When you mow in the summer, never cut more than 1/3 of the grass’ height. Taller grass cools the soil, reduces stress and encourages root growth. Also, leave the clippings on the lawn to return nutrients and encourage growth. Keep up on the weeding. Start early in the year and watch out for nutrient thieves during the growing season. Lastly, fertilize by adding a light top dressing of compost or other organic fertilizer. It decreases thatch on lawns and increases root mass and surface area on plants. Fertilizing is best early in the year when conditions are still wet.

Median square foot home in Oregon 1,500 square feet per the 2015 U.S. Census’ American Housing Survey.

With these averages in mind, if a Bendito used half of the available yard left after the home’s footprint for grass, or about 2,300 square feet, it would cost about $4 each time the sprinklers came on to put 1 inch of water down.

ome may consider newspapers, paper-bound books and record stores a thing of the past. Fortunately for us, newspapers are still printed (whew!), books are still read and, thanks in part to the resurgence of vinyl records—the local record store lives on. In celebration of that nostalgia—and music— Record Store Day started in 2008 and continues to this day. Bend has two local record stores, Ranch Records and Recycle Music, where celebrations will commence on Record Store Day, Saturday, April 21. John Schroeder moved to Bend in 1982 and managed a record store called Rising Sun Records. Over the following 10 years, Schroeder would try other jobs, but 22 years ago, he bought Ranch Records. The store has had three different locations, but has found a home on Oregon Street in downtown Bend for the last three years. “It’s hard to say where the music industry will be in the next 10 years, but people are wild about vinyl right now,” Schroeder says. “It’s exciting and new to some, nostalgic for others. People love the warmth and fidelity of the sound of a vinyl record.” Ranch Records has been a stronghold for 22 years, providing music lovers a haven in downtown Bend. According to Schroeder, Ranch Records may not have remained open without the resurgence of vinyl. “It’s a special day,” Schroeder says. “It honors the about limited edition, you order what you think you The store has always carried used vinyl, often harvest- old ways.

hile the World’s Finest performance on 4/20 may be a celebration of the cannabis community in Central Oregon, you don’t have to be someone who partakes in the enjoyment of the plant in order to enjoy the varied, yet refined sound of the band. “We’ve been coming to Bend forever, it feels like. We’ve done two New Year’s shows there and it’s always been a party. Bend gets down with our particular brand of fun,” Chris Couch, the band’s guitarist and vocalist, says. This time around, World’s Finest, a band focused strongly on string-centric Americana, but also dabbling in reggae, funk and bluegrass, returns to Central Oregon from their home base of Portland, with a new album in tow. “Chromatophores” uses more experimental instrumental landscapes and longer compositions to represent what the band does in concert. “We wanted an album that was a representation of what we were doing live,” Couch says. “We put a lot of time in over the years and we’ve been working on those parts and getting them right. When we knew we were going to have them on the album, we dug in and I think we polished it off pretty good. I like the idea of all of our albums being different. It’s pretty

interesting to see what comes up next.” When it comes to lyrical content, Couch pens many of the band’s songs, while banjo player Dan Hurley also contributes. “Chromatophores” only features nine songs, which are a tighter concentration of songs by Hurley. With two writers, band members believe it makes for a good mix on each album. “I think lyrically, it’s mostly experienced-based for everybody, processing our thoughts as we go through these different life changes,” Couch says. Couch writes songs with the band in mind, leaving a little space to let other band members contribute. “I like to bring a song that needs something else to finish it,” Couch says. “They always step up and have the right part.” At the beginning of 2018, World’s Finest acquired a new drummer and officially added a keyboard player. The band continues to expand its sound. Up next, the band plans to continue along their same path of performing at festivals, touring and creating more musical content. SW

Rajneeshpuram Revisited Presented by

Carl Abbott, Professor Emeritus of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State UniversityIn October 1985, a four-year effort to construct a utopia in Wasco County collapsed in a flurry of criminal charges and arrests of its leaders, including Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. At its peak, Rajneeshpuram housed or hosted 15,000 followers of the Bhagwan. What ended the city so soon? Hostility from other Oregonians? Legal entanglements? A flawed business model? The failures of its leaders and residents? This presentation tries to understand how an effort that was positive for thousands of individuals failed so spectacularly as a community.Doors at 5:30pm. Tuesday, Apr. 24, 7pm. McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St, Bend. Free.

Grab a roller and add some ink to the gallery walls! A key feature of our April exhibit, “Zamenhof’s Trials,” is a public “printstallation” where you can create an evolving work of art. Use custom rollers created by artist Sukha Worob to ink patterns of curves and dashes—the visual building blocks of our alphabet. With each pass of the roller, these shapes overlap and interact to create new letter forms. This prinstallation was inspired by L.L. Zamenhof, a Polish writer and inventor who created a new language, Esperanto, to improve communication across cultures. Come enjoy a shared experience in the gallery. Fun for ages 6-96. Free

PATRICIA CLARK:

SELECTIVE SEEING & ThE RoLE of ThE CoLLECToR Saturday | 9 am | Springhill Suites

A longtime educator and founder of Atelier 6000, Patricia Clark shares her thoughts on “selective seeing”— how members of the public (and collectors in particular) view and value art. Clark examines the critical role of the collector in shaping contemporary art. She offers insight into how communities rich in arts and culture can strengthen the synergy between artists and collectors— fostering art appreciation for collectors and professional development for artists.

ZAMENHOF’S TRIALS

Fri, 10-9 pm | Sat, 10-6 pm | Sun, Noon-5 pm Bend Art Center

Sukha Worob’s interactive installation explores the structure of communication, social connectedness, and belonging. This exhibit is inspired by L.L. Zamenhof, a Polish inventor and writer who created a modern constructed language in an attempt to improve communication across cultures. Worob covers large and small rollers with segments of letter forms and then stages the rollers in the gallery. Visitors are encouraged to pick up a roller and ink the gallery walls in what the artist hopes will create a powerful shared experience. Through this combination of interactivity and physicality, Worob’s exhibit sets the stage for genuine interaction among participants and fosters a sense of belonging. The resulting “printstallation” challenges our thinking of a traditional gallery space. Supported by Roundhouse Foundation.

Fri, 11-6 pm | Sat, 11-6 pm | Closed Sunday At Liberty Arts Collaborative

Fri, 10-8 pm | Sat, 10-6 pm | Sun, 12-5 pm A6 Print Studio in Bend Art Center

“Quietude” explores the resonance of color through reductive paintings, photoworks, and monoprints. Kotler’s work stems from a long-standing interest in the phenomena of light and color, as approached through Buddhist philosophy and meditation. The artist uses color to evoke internal sensations through perception, vibration, and cultural associations. Quieting the mind encourages these experiences.

During a six-year teaching stint in Greece, Paul Alan Bennett developed a distinctive painting style informed by Greek and Turkish folk fabrics. In this new series of mixed-media prints, Bennett prints random textures to create a base for his watercolor paintings. Recalling the Greek landscape and referencing ancient mythology, Bennett circles back to his signature “knit” style with fresh eyes.

LEARN FOR KIDS: THE SCIENCE OF COLOR Sunday, 10-11:30 am | Ages 7+ Bend Art Center

Here’s your chance to experience our popular school education program filled with art and science! We’ll discuss the science of color, from newton’s discovery of the visible spectrum to how our eyes and brains process color. We’ll also look at famous artists like Seurat and Lichtenstein who exploit color optics. Kids can explore color with a light-mixing box, hand-held magnifiers, CMYK color separations, and more. We’ll also make lots of art! In the gallery, kids can add more layers to our exhibit, “Zamenhof’s Trials,” by printing right on the walls! In the A6 Print Studio, we’ll experiment with layers of color printing using specially-designed rollers. Caregivers do not need to be present. $8

LISTEN

ART APPRECIATION: “MY KID COULD DO THAT!” Sunday, 5 pm Bend Art Center

It’s a common critique of modern painters. Jackson Pollock’s paint spatters, Rothko’s color washes, and Matisse’s paper cutouts seem so simple that a child could make them. But is that really the case? Are these artists’ works deceptively difficult to create? And why exactly are they so famous? Join us for a humorous and thought-provoking look at modern art led by Bend Art Center’s Education Manager Dawn Boone. $5

Rebel With a Cause Sustaining Bend through trees

A few intriguing art things happening around the C.O. Keira Kotler Keira Kotler’s show At Liberty is one to see. Her serene and visually calming work is a delight in color and light exploration. It’s her ability to find the simple, in between moments of color and light that make her work so enticing. It’s precisely this work that names those things we don’t even know need naming, but are understood in our being. It’s the type of work that’s so difficult to achieve, but looks so simple, you’re not sure what you’re seeing. Keira Kotler through April 28 At Liberty 849 NW Wall St., Bend atlibertyarts.com

nuclear power plant. She and her family moved to Bend 21 years ago after living about 17 years in Alaska. It was the “dry climate and skiing” that attracted them to Bend, Palmer says. “It was like a little, miniature Alaska, except with a dry climate.” She is no longer married but has a grown son and daughter living in San Francisco and Portland, respectively. While speaking with Palmer, one can detect just a wispy slice of a southern accent. It is pretty much gone now, but every time she returns to South Carolina to visit family, it comes sashaying back. She says it takes “about a minute—I can hear my voice changing as I’m getting off the airplane.” What about the curse of the junipers, which have a bad reputation for sucking up so much groundwater? “This is the right place for them, but there’s too many of them,” she says. “There are not enough ponderosas.” Palmer says she is optimistic that “our actions will provide a healthy, vital community for generations to come.”

“I’ve always been a hellraiser, and I think I have a lot of rebel spirit in me. The more I work on environmental issues, the happier I am. I’ve always enjoyed working on environmental and sustainability issues.” She’s had her Bend home remodeled to be more energy efficient and has given workshops on how indoor air quality and energy efficiency work together. She says she pretty much gave up her art for 25 years while she worked in the efficient building industry. “I’m a wannabe artist. I’m actually a potter,” Palmer says. Due to health issues, she doesn’t ski so much anymore, but walks and swims laps at the Juniper Swim & Fitness Center. Another one of her passions is working on a film that she wants to write and produce. “Your Home, Your Air,” its working title, will focus on more of her interests—indoor air quality, sustainability and energy efficiency. “This is what really gives me joy,” she says about working on the film. “The chances of me pulling it off are one in twenty thousand, but I’m that one.”  SW

States Department of Agriculture Forest Service study in 2013, urban trees can remove very small particulates in the air—less than 2.5 microns— leading to the saving of 8 lives per year in New York City alone. “It is so important that we really retain some of our character,” Palmer says, regarding Bend’s trees. “We’ve been cutting down so many trees, the east side is losing any original character. If we start planning and preserving, we can bring it back.” Palmer says that Bend Parks and Recreation District and the City of Bend have been “wonderful” about getting involved through forestry programs and establishing a forestry advisory board. She sees the need for more smart growth in Bend. “If we look at it we can come up with good, creative solutions,” she adds. “We need more preservation to keep our urban forests,” Palmer says. “We want to work together as a team to come up with what will be best for the future and to have a healthy urban forest.” Palmer says she has been an off and on volunteer at the Environmental Center over the past 20 years, “fighting on different issues as they come along.” Her soft blue eyes light up as she adds, “But I will show up to every party they have!” Her activism began when she was 19, growing up in her native South Carolina, when she started working against a

“We’ve been cutting down so many trees, the east side is losing any original character. If we start planning and preserving, we can bring it back.”

By Richard Sitts ver by 15th Street and Wilson Avenue on the east side of Bend, there’s an old juniper tree that Louise Palmer says sometimes speaks to her. She says it tells her to watch out for all the other urban trees around town. That might be a tall order for the demure volunteer who calls herself a “tree nut,” but she’s taken on the caretaker role with gusto. “Ever since I was a kid I’ve been drawing trees and insipid little weeds,” she says. “I’ve always been a real tree nut. I was always a nature nut.” Palmer helped form the Bend4Trees Coalition about a year ago. The group’s first success was getting Bend reinstated this month as a Tree City, USA, by the Arbor Day Foundation. Bend had enjoyed that status for a total of 14 years before losing it a few years ago. One of the advantages of this status, according to a Bend4Trees handout, is that it shows the community “understands the worth of a sustainable healthy urban forest to their city’s overall health.” Bend4Trees will have a booth at the Environmental Center’s Earth Day activities on Saturday, April 21. Palmer points out how studies have shown that having more trees in cities even helps lower crime rates. In the sciencedirect.com’s 2012 article on Landscape and Urban planning, a study claimed a 10 percent increase in tree canopy equated to roughly a 12 percent decrease in crime in Greater Baltimore. In addition, urban tree programs can help keep water and air clean, improve the appearance and livability of neighborhoods, spur economic growth, and enhance property values. According to a United

The Final Straw?

Single-use plastic bags, and now straws, are becoming taboo By Grant Woods

ome people treat plastic bags and other single-use items like they’re taboo; others toss them into the trash or the blue bins without a moment’s pause. But, both showing up inside the digestive tracks of marine animals; plastic flotillas have been seen roaming the open ocean and once-beautiful beaches have been turned into sandy recycling centers, covered with people’s throwaways. “I’d start by showing people the video of the sea turtle with a plastic straw stuck in its nose. Or show them one of the beaches in South East Asia, covered in plastic debris,” said Harlin Savage, Communications Director at Eco Cycle. Watching the painful removal of a plastic straw from the nose of a writhing turtle is brutal, but it sends a very clear message. An image of a once beautiful beach, now thrashed and defaced with an incomprehensible amount of discarded plastic is heartbreaking. The truth of plastic pollution is blatant, yet many of us continue to contribute to the growing problem. The issue of plastic waste is being attacked by several campaigns. However, the sheer quantity of daily discarded plastic is almost unfathomable. According to Savage, the battle is being fought on many fronts, each group stepping up, taking responsibility, and pushing for progress in its community. The original Be Straw Free Campaign was started in 2011 by then 9-year-old Milo Cress. Cress recognized plastic straws as mostly unnecessary, and realized the frivolity in which his community discarded them by the truckload. The point of contention with the Straw Free Campaign is simple, yet there’s a serious disconnect. Straws come almost standard, as if they sprouted through the lids of our beverages naturally. They are used for an extra few inches of neck-cranking convenience, and immediately tossed into the garbage. The

featherweight object is easily blown out of our consciousness but in reality, according to ecocycle.org, 500 million disposable straws are used every day capable of filling 46,400 large school buses each year. Another issue, contributing to the same widespread pollution, are plastic bags. The legislative rumblings of plastic bag bans continue in the state of Oregon. According to Peter Spendelow, Recycling Specialist at the Department of Environmental Quality, plastic bag bans have been put into legislation, but have not passed on the statewide front. While individual cities such as Portland, Eugene, and Hood River have made progress by instituting their own plastic bag bans, the bags continue to be a

litter issue, both on land, and as marine debris. Spendelow recognizes the usefulness of some small amounts of plastic for things like bread, but also points out the fact that plastic grocery bags cannot be processed by recycling systems. “If they’re thrown away in curbside recycling, they get caught up in the rotors of the machines,” Spendelow said. “On top of that, it’s so common for these bags to be blown away, becoming litter.” Ultimately, excess plastic waste is a topic that must continue to be discussed. Whether our communities address them from the grassroots level, or as statewide laws, there must be a conscious effort of lessening our consumption of these onetime-use objects. The implications of using one straw or one plastic take-away bag seem inconsequential, but stepping back, looking at the big plastic-littered picture, the global consequences seem obvious.  SW

Central Oregon local vs. Oregon local By Lisa Sipe

The investment 123 Ramen and Jackson’s Corner make in local food benefits all of us. restaurants say local on their menu and we think this means they are using Central Oregon produce and meats, but this isn’t necessarily the case. The majority of our restaurants use that term and the products they are using are from outside the community of Central Oregon. Occasionally it even means Washington and Northern California. This distinction is important for a few reasons. Local food tastes better because it is in season and picked at the peak of ripeness instead of early to account for shipping and distribution. That shorter time between harvest and our table means we get more nutrients out of our food. There are two local restaurants making a great effort to intentionally source as close to Central Oregon as possible. To be clear, neither restaurant sources 100 percent locally—that just isn’t possible with what can be grown in our climate.

Vegan Food Truck Needs Community Help to Grow After two years of hustling in their small vegan food cart, Chef Richard Hull and his partner Barbara Troyer are crowd funding to purchase a larger trailer for A Broken Angel. Their current cart is so tiny only Hull can fit in it. Even the register sits outside exposed to the elements. A larger trailer will give Hull more space to cook, which can mean shorter wait times and more items on the menu. And with space for three people, Hull can have an assistant and orders can be taken inside. To achieve their trailer dreams, Hull and Troyer need to raise $25,000. They are asking the community to contribute to their cause through the crowd-funding platform Kickstarter. A Broken Angel only receives funding if they meet their goal by May 6.

ave you seen the Portlandia farm episode? Where the main characters, Fred and Carrie, are at a restaurant and they ask a few questions about the chicken. “Is it local? Is that USDA organic or Oregon organic or Portland organic? How big is the area where the chickens are able to roam free?” The waitress asks them to hold on a second and she returns with a folder including specs for the chicken. The details include the name of the farm, the chicken’s name, Colin, and a photo. Fred and Carrie continue to ask questions. Was Colin able to put his wing around another bird? Was he happy? The waitress tries to answer but she doesn’t know the minutiae. Fred and Carrie ask the server to hold their seats, they need to go check out the farm. That scene is over the top but having some of that drive to know where our food is coming from is healthy. For instance, what does local even mean?

Love and Dogs SCREEN For “Isle of Dogs” is a charmer By Jared Rasic Fox Searchlight

39 VOLUME 22  ISSUE 16  /  April 19, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Y

ou either like Wes Anderson or you don’t. His critics use words like “twee,” “smug” and “calculated” to describe his very distinct visual style; filled to bursting with formal compositions and meticulously detailed frames…and they’re not really wrong. His films are like dioramas where the audience is invited to sit outside and marvel, without necessarily receiving an invitation to stay. Where I think most critics misinterpret his work is when they accuse his visually sumptuous work of being hollow or lacking an emotional core. Anderson’s heart is always fully on display as he allows it to either be broken or understood. All of his films celebrate the outsider, but they explore those dynamics in ways that undermine the simple narrative of the underdog. “Rushmore” broke down two outcasts from different generations as they misunderstand the difference between love and obsession. “The Life Aquatic” saw the packed days of an adventurer slowing down as age and family re-shaped his calloused heart. “The Darjeeling Limited” told the stories of three brothers seeing each other as people for the first time, in a land as alien to them as the moon. As meticulous and exacting as the design is, Anderson’s films are all emotion, with the gorgeous production in service to his characters— all only in search of love. “Isle of Dogs” is no different. The film sees Anderson stepping back into stop-motion animation after the flawless 2009 masterpiece, “The Fantastic Mr. Fox.” The painstaking effort required in stop-motion animation suits Anderson perfectly, as the effort of the medium is regarded in the elegance of his imagery and storytelling. “Isle of Dogs” takes place in Japan sometime in the future. A dog flu has spread through the entire canine population of Megasaki City. The mayor (a cat lover) ships all the dogs to Trash Island where they will remain forever. The mayor’s ward, Atari, steals a plane and flies to the island to search for his dog, Spots, and possibly rescue all the dogs from a fate they don’t deserve. A large portion of the film follows Atari as he

Behold The Oracle, voiced by Tilda Swinton, in “Isle of Dogs.”

travels across the rotten landscape with the help of five dogs who’ve decided to help the boy. The wild dog in the bunch, Chief (soulfully voiced by Bryan Cranston), doesn’t want anything to do with a master, but he’s outvoted. The beautiful beating heart of the film is in watching Atari and Chief slowly grow to love each other while surrounded by nothing but ugliness and desperation. “Isle of Dogs” didn’t resonate as strongly with me as most of Anderson’s work, but deciding how to feel about one of his movies on the first viewing, and to try to write about the myriad of emotions his work always pulls out of me has always been fruitless. Every film of his has taken on new meaning as I get older. When I was a teenager, “Rushmore” spoke right to me, but in my 30’s, “The Darjeeling Limited” wrecks me every time.

If you don’t like Anderson’s style, “Isle of Dogs” might change your mind. This story of a kid and his dog transcends art design and droll comedy and becomes something much more primal and personal. The details are different, but we’ve all been there, sharing unconditional love with our best friend. SW

Stoner movies for a lazy 4/20

41

By Jared Rasic

VOLUME 22  ISSUE 16  /  April 19, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

There’s a lot going on during 4/20. Obviously, it’s the day we celebrate all things marijuana, but it’s also the anniversary of the date of the first known performance of “Macbeth,” the day the NFL legalized coaching from the bench, the Columbine High School massacre and my dad’s birthday (Happy Birthday, David!) There’s a ton more that’s happened on April 20 throughout history, but what we really care about is the weed. Here are a few of my favorite stoner movies that you can watch to celebrate the day that aren’t the typical fare like “Super Troopers,” “Half Baked” or “The Big Lebowski.” Although, any of those are pretty great choices. New Line

Grief is a Universal Call BECKONING US EACH HOME TO OURSELVES

Free and Open to Public: “Friday” and “Wet Hot American Summer” will never let you down.

Friday

Billy Madison

Judging from the proliferation of the use of “Bye, Felicia” over the last few years, “Friday” might be an easy choice, but I don’t care. There is not now, nor will there ever be a greater stoner movie than “Friday.” No argument or rebuttals. The beautiful feeling of it being a Friday afternoon with nothing to do but smoke and people watch is timeless and this movie only gets funnier as the years go by. There’s never a bad time to watch “Friday,” but 4/20 makes it just a little bit sweeter. Classic line: “He gonna cry in the car.”

I know Adam Sandler hasn’t made a great comedy in a while, but I think he might still have one more “Billy Madison” left in him. I’ve never seen this sober, so I can’t say that it’s a good movie, but watching a grown-ass man go back to elementary and middle school delights my entire stoned self. C’mon Sandler, you’ve got another comedy classic left in you. You can do eeet! Classic line: “Stop looking at me, swan.”

The Cabin in the Woods The stoner is usually just the comic relief in horror movies, until they get killed and the audience is sad for 30 seconds. “The Cabin in the Woods” inverts that trope by not only making the stoner the smartest character in the movie, but by making him heroic. He makes some silly choices, but ultimately is the strongest character in the movie. That helps with stoner morale, I think. Plus, it’s a great movie. Classic line: “Cops will never pull over a man with a huge bong in his car. Why? They fear this man. They know he sees further than they... and he will bind them... with ancient logics.”

Wet Hot American Summer Set during the last day of summer camp in 1981, “Wet Hot American Summer” takes a cast featuring Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks and about a dozen more wonderful comic voices and forces them to be as silly as possible. Mostly improvised, the film bounces between farce, satire and dick jokes with a surprising ease and is easily one of the most quotable comedies of all time. Plus, it has H. Jon Benjamin, the voice of Archer, playing a can of vegetables. Classic line: “You taste like a burger. I don’t like you anymore.”  SW

Where does Bend’s water go? Keeping your yard “green” by Chris Miller Chris Miller

Buettner said 60 percent of all residential water use is landscape irrigation, or in laymen’s terms, watering the grass. “We have really sandy/pumice soils here that don’t hold a lot of water or nutrients, so people often end up irrigating excessively to keep lawns looking green,” Buettner said. Buettner offered some free advice for those who want lush looking grass areas. “In general, most homeowners with a lawn should always be thinking about how to build up the soil’s moisture hold capacity,” he said. His advice: • Leave the grass clippings. • Do a regular aeration. • Consider an annual topdressing with an organic compost. • Or better yet, just convert to a water-wise landscape and ditch the lawn mower altogether. Other facts about Bend’s water use: • About 60 percent of the City’s water is residential, the other 40 percent in non-residential. • The largest single user tends to be large outdoor spaces, like sports fields for junior and senior high schools. • Bend Parks and Recreation District only has City water delivered to a handful of parks. The District has a variety of other water rights and sources. • Beer drinkers rejoice, as breweries use less than 2 percent of the water the City produces.

43 VOLUME 22  ISSUE 16  /  April 19, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

For our Sustainability Issue, the Source reached out to Michael Buettner, the City of Bend Water District’s water conservation program manager, to see where most of our water goes.

An irrigation system blows water down NW Bond Street and the sidewalk near NW Georgia Avenue on Tuesday, April 17. Irrigation systems use the most residential water in Bend.

Check out waterwisetips.org and wateruseitwisely. com for other information on conserving water, such as: • Scrape your food waste, don’t rinse. Have faith in your dishwasher, pre-rinsing dishes wastes water. • Pay attention to your irrigation system and seasonally adjust it. It should only run at peak volume during June and July. April and September, run the sprinklers at 50 percent. In May at 60 percent, August 80 percent and October at 30 percent. Also, pay attention to when you run irrigation: the best hours are 7pm to 6am. From 9-5pm, you shouldn’t run irrigation except for

new sod, seed or plantings. • Make sure you’re not watering the street or your neighbor’s driveway. The City’s code prohibits these actions. • Check water pressure to be between 30 to 60 psi. Higher pressure causes sprinkler heads’ radius to decrease and flows to increase, wasting water. • And, the City’s utility department has a sprinkler inspection program which started in 2014. If you are on the City of Bend’s water system and you have an operating underground irrigation system, you can request an inspection by calling 541-317-3000 or conservation@bendoregon.gov. SW

Where you go wrong is in taking the hesitant approach to asking a woman out—waiting for her to give you some unambiguous indication of interest (ideally, in large red letters on a lighted billboard pulled by a pair of rented elephants). That said, you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself. The psychological operating system now driving you (and all of us) evolved to solve ancestral mating and survival problems, and what was adaptive back then can be maladaptive today. Take how we evolved to be deeply concerned about safeguarding our reputation. Reputation is essentially our social report card—others’ evaluation of the sort of person we are. It matters today, of course, but not in the life-or-death way it often did in an ancestral environment, where—per anthropologist Irven DeVore’s estimate—many people were with the same band of about 25 others for much of their life. Back then, if a guy got snubbed by a girl, it would be frontcave news; everybody would know and be laughing behind his back in short order. Flash-forward to today. You’re in a bar. Some woman you hit on spurns you. Well, that blows—and more so if there are witnesses. But there are countless other bars— which means you can erase the embarrassing stain on your social rap sheet simply by trotting down the block to the next happy hour.  Ultimately, recognizing the mismatch between our evolved emotions and modern life helps you understand when the emotions driving you are counterproductively outdated—and basically stupid. In short, assuming that a woman you’re chatting up isn’t giving you a hate glare, ask her out. If she isn’t interested, she’ll let you know—either right then, with some brushoff like “Actually, I have a boyfriend…” or later, when you phone her and hear: “Home Depot, lumber department. How may I direct your call?” 

Darth Vaper

mom into assisted living. My friend vapes, and I started vaping, too, after being off nicotine for years. I bought a vape, but I’m hiding it from my wife because she’s so judgmental about it. I’m not ready to stop yet, but I feel awful hiding it. —Hooked What’s worse than the crime? The cover-up—when your wife asks “How was your day, honey?” and you just nod as vape smoke leaks out of your nostrils.  Your hiding your vaping is an “instrumental lie.” This kind of deceit, explains deception researcher Bella DePaulo, is a self-serving lie used as an “instrument” to unfairly influence other peoAmy Alkon ple’s behavior—allowing the liar to get what they want, do what they want, or avoid punishment. Chances are, the “punishment” you’re avoiding is the rotten feelings you’d have in the wake of your wife’s dismay that your old BFF, nicotine, is back. However, DePaulo’s research on people duped by those close to them suggests that covering up the truth is ultimately more costly—leading to far more and far longer-lasting feelbad. It makes sense that the betrayal is the bigger deal because it socks the duped person right in the ego, telling them they were a sucker for being so trusting. In romantic situations, a duped person’s notion of the relationship as a safe space—a place where they can let their guard down—gets shaken or shattered when reality turns out to be “reality” in a fake nose and glasses.  Telling the truth, on the other hand -leaving your wife feeling disappointed, but not deceived—sets the stage for a discussion instead of a prosecution. This allows your wife the emotional space to see the real you—the you who broke down and started vaping while doing this emotionally grueling very kind deed. (What?! You aren’t made of titanium?!) Compassion from your wife should mean more leeway for you to set the behavioral agenda—to tell her that you want to stop but ask that she let you do it on your own timetable. This isn’t to say you should always be perfectly or immediately honest. For example, if you prefer your wife with longer hair, that’s something she needs to know—eventually. But at that moment when she walks in with an “edgy” new haircut, “Helloo, beautiful!” is actually the best policy—as opposed to the more honest “Whoa! Stevie Wonder attack you with a pair of garden shears?”

ASTROLOGY

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll soon arrive at a pressure-packed turning point. You’ll stand poised at a pivotal twist of fate where you must trust your intuition to reveal the differences between smart risks and careless gambles. Are you willing to let your half-naked emotions show? Will you have the courage to be brazenly loyal to your deepest values? I won’t wish you luck, because how the story evolves will be fueled solely by your determination, not by accident or happenstance. You will know you’re in a good position to solve the Big Riddles if they feel both scary and fun. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Strong softness is one of your specialties. So are empathetic rigor, creative responsiveness, and daring acts of nurturing. Now is a perfect time to summon and express all of these qualities with extra flair. If you do, your influence will exceed its normal quotas. Your ability to heal and inspire your favorite people will be at a peak. So I hereby invite you to explore the frontiers of aggressive receptivity. Wield your courage and power with a fierce vulnerability. Be tenderly sensitive as an antidote to any headstrong lovelessness you encounter. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In 1973, Pink Floyd released the album *The Dark Side of the Moon.* Since then, it has been on various Billboard charts for over 1,700 weeks, and has sold more than 45 million copies. Judging from the astrological aspects coming to bear on you, Leo, I suspect you could create or produce a beautiful thing with a similar staying power in the next five months. What vitalizing influence would you like to have in your life for at least the next 30 years?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I beg you to take a break sometime soon. Give yourself permission to indulge in a vacation or recess or sabbatical. Wander away on a leave of absence. Explore the mysteries of a siesta blended with a fiesta. If you don’t grant yourself this favor, I may be forced to bark “Chill out, dammit!” at you until you do. Please don’t misunderstand my intention here. The rest of us appreciate the way you’ve been attending to the complicated details that are too exacting for us. But we can also see that if you don’t ease up, there will soon be diminishing returns. It’s time to return to your studies of relaxing freedom. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Singer-songwriter Roy Orbison achieved great success in the 1960s, charting 22 songs on the *Billboard* Top 40. But his career declined after that. Years later, in 1986, filmmaker David Lynch asked him for the right to use his tune “In Dreams” for the movie *Blue Velvet.* Orbison denied the request, but Lynch incorporated the tune anyway. Surprise! *Blue Velvet* was nominated for an Academy Award and played a big role in reviving Orbison’s fame. Later the singer came to appreciate not only the career boost, but also Lynch’s unusual aesthetic, testifying that the film gave his song an “otherworldly quality that added a whole new dimension.” Now let’s meditate on how this story might serve as a parable for your life. Was there an opportunity that you once turned down but will benefit from anyway? Or is there a current opportunity that maybe you shouldn’t turn down, even if it seems odd?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ve been to the

Land of No Return and back more than anyone. But soon you’ll be visiting a remote enclave in this realm that you’re not very familiar with. I call it the Mother Lode of Sexy Truth. It’s where tender explorers go when they must transform outworn aspects of their approach to partnership and togetherness. On the eve of your quest, shall we conduct an inventory of your capacity to outgrow your habitual assumptions about relationships? No, let’s not. That sounds too stiff and formal. Instead, I’ll simply ask you to strip away any falseness that interferes with vivacious and catalytic intimacy.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In 1824, two British explorers climbed a mountain in southwestern Australia. They were hoping to get a sweeping view of Port Phillip Bay, on which the present-day city of Melbourne is located. But when they reached the top, their view was largely obstructed by trees. Out of perverse spite, they decided to call the peak Mount Disappointment, a name it retains to this day. I suspect you may soon have your own personal version of an adventure that falls short of your expectations. I hope -- and also predict -- that your experience won’t demoralize you, but will rather mobilize you to attempt a new experiment that ultimately surpasses your original expectations.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn rock musician Lemmy Kilmister bragged that he swigged a bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey every day from 1975 to 2013. While I admire his dedication to inducing altered states of consciousness, I can’t recommend such a strategy for you. But I will love it if you undertake a more disciplined crusade to escape numbing routines and irrelevant habits in the next four weeks. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you will have a special knack for this practical art.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Germany was one of the big losers of World War I, which ended in 1919. By accepting the terms of the Versailles Treaty, it agreed to pay reparations equivalent to 96,000 tons of gold. Not until 2010, decades after the war, did Germany finally settle its bill and fulfill its obligation. I’m sure your own big, long-running debt is nowhere near as big or as long-running as that one, Aquarius. But you will nonetheless have reason to be ecstatic when you finally discharge it. And according to my reading of the astrological omens, that could and should happen sometime soon. (P.S. The “debt” could be emotional or spiritual rather than financial.) PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “I would rather have a drop of luck than a barrel of brains,” said the ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes. Fortunately, that’s not a choice you will have to face in the coming weeks, Pisces. According to my reading of the cosmic signs, your brain will be working with even greater efficiency and ingenuity than it usually does. Meanwhile, a stronger-than-expected flow of luck will be swirling around in your vicinity. One of your main tasks will be to harness your enhanced intelligence to take shrewd advantage of the good fortune. ARIES (March 21-April 19): In the early history of the automobile, electric engines were more popular and common than gasoline-powered engines. They were less noisy, dirty, smelly, and difficult to operate. It’s too bad that thereafter the technology for gasoline cars developed at a faster rate than the technology for electric cars. By the end of the first decade of the twentieth century, the petroleum-suckers were in ascendance. They have remained so ever since, playing a significant role in our world’s ongoing environmental degradation. Moral of the story: Sometimes the original idea or the early model or the first try is better. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you should consider applying this hypothesis to your current state of affairs.

Homework: It’s easy to see fanaticism, rigidity, and intolerance in other people, but harder to acknowledge them in yourself. Do you dare? Testify at Freewillastrology.com.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The Chesapeake Bay is a fertile estuary that teems with life. It’s 200 miles long and holds 18 trillion gallons of water. More than 150 streams and rivers course into its drainage basin. And yet it’s relatively shallow. If you’re six feet tall, you could wade through over a thousand square miles of its mix of fresh and salt water without getting your hat wet. I see this place as an apt metaphor for your life in the coming weeks: an expanse of flowing fecundity that is vast but not so deep that you’ll get overwhelmed.
