ave you seen the movie Big Night? Two Italian brothers are trying to rustle up business for their restaurant in Baltimore and they concoct the most authentic and succulent Italian meal in the history of Italian meals. It is a wonderful film—full of humor, passion, and sizzling dishes. And, oh my goodness! Last week, I sat down for an hour with Juri Sbandati, the owner and chef for Trattoria Sbandati. His restaurant was our pick for our Restaurant of the Year. And Sbandati himself? Un-apologetically Italian. Unlike the prevailing culinary trends that incorporate every berry and morsel grown in the Pacific Northwest into a restaurant’s menu items, Sbandati makes his dishes like his grandmother did when he was growing up in Florence (Italy, not Oregon). Such passion and stubbornness are the perfect, well, recipe for authenticity, which is exactly what we were looking for this year in our Restaurant of the Year. Yes, it is our Annual Restaurant Guide—and this year we added a couple new sections. First, a Readers’ Choice. And, second, with the proliferation of food carts, we added as comprehensive a listing as possible, and also nominated a Food Cart of the Year. Check out the guide—and hold on to it for the next 12 months. It was also an odd week for us to celebrate restaurants as City Council handed down potentially game-changing regulations: See Erin Rook’s piece on Page 7 about the new rules for short-term rentals. It’s such a Catch-22­ —we want to celebrate what makes Bend such a great city, but we also worry that the region is becoming too touristy. We feel very conflicted this week.

Run later, more often, more routes, and on time. Also, hire better drivers—I see the ones now do something they shouldn’t in traffic nearly every day. Professional drivers are a must! —Eugenia Osborne via sourceweekly Later would be great. If there were busses that stopped downtown on the weekend in the later hours I bet it would cut down on drunk driving. It’s cheaper than a cab and if they ran every hour or so they could pick up quite a bit of people before they decided to drive. Would also free up downtown parking. —Ellie Sullivan Cuff via sourceweekly The busses are late. You can’t count on them. They don’t understand why people need to be on time. The drivers are rude and the routes are terrible. —Kit Mann via


Education is important so drivers don’t keep considering people on bikes to be “entitled cyclists” thinking we own the road. However, all the laws and signs in the world do nothing when people have a lack of respect for people period and go around feeling so hateful and angry and “right.” In Oklahoma, they go so far as to keep construing the law to protect the driver, even if their ignorance and lack of simple common sense kills someone…. No way to win with laws. Only way is to teach people to imagine that cyclist is their mom or their kid or wife or husband or brother. You gonna run ’em over and hide behind laws that even cops, lawyers, and judges don’t understand? —Corie Young via


I have had the exact experience here— drivers (trucks, mostly) revving and honking from behind, then cursing at the next light, when I’m supposed to get the whole lane (and they have a passing lane to use). It’s maddening. —Arthur K Tripp via sourceweekly


Whole-heartedly. It teaches society to be more aware of their surroundings. If you can’t figure out how to live with wild animals, then it’s a sad day. Nature was here first. :) —Callipygianlass via sourceweekly Yes, we must protect our amazing mountain lion—never call ODFW or the police if you see one—it’s an instant death sentence for the creature. There has never been a cougar attack on a person in Oregon history. Please come speak out in defense of our wolves and mountain lions this Friday at the public ODFW meeting! More info check out #predatordefense FB page or website. Our wild animals need our help. Keep #oregonwild. —Lightseekingeyes via sourceweekly Never report a cougar sighting, just back away slowly and be glad you had the experience. Police and Oregon Department of Wildlife kill them rather than [use] nonlethal means like they use in California. Check out the CA nonlethal mountain lion public safety bill—passed last year. —Bad_tabby via I think it would be pretty neat to die by cougar. My kids and grandkids would always have an interesting story to tell. —letspartybigfoot via sourceweekly You all know how I feel. That cougar should have been left alone. My only concern is not reporting. If that cougar had taken down a deer and had a carcass nearby, that’s a possible very dangerous situation for someone off trail. Most people don’t know how to tell or even think to look. Experts


need to assess, but if they always kill the animal, they aren’t even needed. There are plenty of people who know how to shoot a cougar. Policies need to be written and followed. This situation could have been perfect for educating the public. They wasted a great opportunity in addition to taking the cougar’s life. —thebuttelady via sourceweekly Heeding an old American saying, “Chase two rabbits at the same time and both rabbits will get away,” I usually try restricting my concerns to one subject at a time—one of these concerns being public transit. Tonight, however, I feel compelled to instead comment about the addresses to Council on 4 March 2015—namely, by Wade Fagen and Allegra [Briggs], and their subjects. Wade regarding Mirror Pond and contingent matters: He convinced me and numerous others that his proposal was the best and that he definitely had done his homework. Allegra likewise had done her homework. And her suggestions regarding vacation home rentals were most logical. So I do applaud both Wade and Allegra. Though I would like to stick to my usual observances regarding public transit, [today] I wish to instead…comment about vacation home rentals. In addition to the facts presented by Allegra, vacation home rentals contribute to causing the shortage and abnormally high rents of conventional rentals. Appropriate seem the works of Mahatma

Gandhi: “The earth provides enough for every man’s needs, but not enough for every man’s greed.” Though it is popular for us Oregonians to ridicule Californians, that state nevertheless does SOME things right. One of them is putting the brakes on the amount of rent increases. It does so by limiting a rent raise to no more than the statistical cost of living increase. —Earl Williams

Letter of the Week! Earl—My grandmother had a saying: If you have a lot on your mind, best to dump it at our doorstep. Thanks for your many notes in one, and please come by for your $5 certificate for Palate.

Yes, the city did get its UGB plans sent back from the state in 2008. But you neglect to inform that they also didn’t follow any of the state’s laws about the UGB, so naturally the plans were rejected. If Bend didn’t think it was a special circumstance and the state growth laws didn’t apply to them, perhaps they wouldn’t be in this mess. —Austin Anderson via sourceweekly

All communities need more “sharing the road with bicycles” education and signage. Even better would be roads/streets designed and built to support bicycle safety as a forethought, instead of how things are in the U.S., as an afterthought. —Steve Burkett via

It is almost getting tiring to say, but kudos to Rep. Knute Buehler. And, at some point, an elected official acting on his best judgment and breaking from traditional political party dogma will not be news. But, for the time being, when Democrats and Republicans are expected to follow the party’s playbook for most social issues, Rep. Buehler is acting as a free agent—and, as such, truly representing Central Oregon in his first term in the Oregon House. Why are we so surprised? He told us he would be, and do, exactly this. When Buehler campaigned last year, he proudly stated his afflation with the Republican Party, but also went out of his way to identify his political positions that differ from the political party’s traditional platform. Moreover, he promised to think and vote independently from his party and to set his own course. A month ago, he was the only Republican on the Health Care Committee to support HB 2307, a bill that sought to outlaw so-called conversion therapy, a “treatment” that tries to force gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender youth to become straight, and which has been discredited by the American Psychological Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics. That stance was notable for its independence, and for announcing his ability to stand by his moral and scientific convictions. But last week, Rep. Buehler was even more forthright, and added a specific proposal that, at first blush, would seem counter to many of the prevailing winds of the Republican Party: On Wednesday, Rep. Buehler added a specific proposal to House Bill 2028 that would allow pharmacists to distribute birth control over the counter. That bill, HB 2028 already is structured to give more authority to Oregon pharmacists; Rep. Buehler’s proposal gives the specific ability for pharmacists to distribute birth control. The proposal in notable for a couple reasons: First, it is simple and fair. Yet, it is also controversial. At the federal and state levels, many conservatives have lambasted the Affordable Care Act. It has been one of the most heated battle lines between political parties. However, even though a Republican, Rep. Buehler’s proposal bolsters one of the more controversial issues within the Affordable Care Act—that is, the requirement that insurance companies cover contraceptives prescribed by a woman’s doctor. By bypassing a requirement for a doctor’s prescription, Rep. Buehler provides even greater access to such contraceptives for women. Rep. Buehler’s proposal is also notable because it does what the Affordable Care Act strives to do; that is, it helps eliminate expenses for patients and clears doctors’ schedules for tasks that can’t be handled elsewhere. With medical costs increasing, eliminating cumbersome bureaucracy—like setting up doctor’s appointments and health care insurance approval systems—truly does help make health care more affordable. Moreover, Rep. Buehler also does what lawmaking should do: Borrow from best-practices elsewhere (California currently permits this same allowance), and build from previous successes (12 years ago, the Oregon legislature allowed pharmacists to provide vaccinations and there have been no problems as a result). Even though the proposal is simple, it has the potential to be controversial—and we applaud Rep. Buehler for following a course that he believes is the best idea, rather than an idea that may earn him support, or simply take a course of neutral or no action.

No Room for More Inns

New City policies formalize vacation rental operations



STILL FOR RENT, BUT NOW WITH LOTS OF REGULATIONS. PHOTO BY ERIN ROOK. Kickstarter. Uber. Airbnb. These services have been at the vanguard of the modern “sharing economy.” Yet, what started largely as informal means to generate a little extra money for ordinary people—whether by turning your car into a part-time taxi, or renting out your house while away on vacation yourself—has quickly matured into full-time businesses; in Bend, hundreds of homes are available for short-term rental on Airbnb alone, and investors have swooped into town to purchase homes strictly to use as vacation rentals. For the past five months, the City of Bend, like other popular destination spots across the country, has struggled to fashion policies that make clear the line between someone simply “sharing” and a full-fledged business exchange—and, moreover, to respond to residents’ complaints that high concentrations of vacation rentals dilute the quality of life in residential neighborhoods. On Wednesday, City Council answered that question—at least for the time being—by voting to limit the clustering of future short-term rentals, and to create a more serious fee and inspection structure. As well, even if not intentionally, they carved out some exceptions for homeowners who only rent now and again, but are not conducting a full-fledged business. The vote was one of the first significant votes for the new City Council. And, despite diverse perspectives among Council on the particulars, the body ultimately voted in unanimously in the interest of enacting the ordinance’s emergency clause, which made the land use policies effective April 16. “The short-term rental discussion was a large public policy matter that blended a number of issues—livability, tourism, property rights, room tax collection, and others,” Assistant City Manager Jon Skidmore explains. “I applaud the Council for moving it from concept to discussion to adoption in a fast timeline [less than 5 months]. Some members of the community will be pleased with the new regulations. Others won’t. Council was responsive to and decisive about an issue that impacted neighborhoods in our City’s core.” Under the new policies, owner-occupied properties rented out for fewer than 30 days per year are effectively excluded from all the new rules. Those owners, who are just renting a few days here and there, do not need a land use permit, operating license, or to pay transient room taxes if they rent out a spare room only infrequently. Skidmore says that while an interest in preserving the sharing economy didn’t really factor into discussions about how to address owner-occupied short-term rentals, there was some recognition that such setups are substantially different from the kind of yearround vacation rentals most residents are complaining about. “From what I witnessed, there was recognition that owner occupied STRs likely provide better management of some livability issues than non-owner occupied STRs,” Skidmore says. “This is due

primarily to the owner being on site with the renters while they are renting. For instance, the potential for late night hot tub parties that disturb the neighbors aren’t as likely to occur in an owner occupied STR—especially if the owner wants to go to bed.” He also hopes that one of the more unique elements of the City’s approach—establishing “Good Neighbor Guidelines”—will also help address some of the livability concerns raised by neighbors, even if the total number of vacation rentals in the highly concentrated neighborhoods doesn’t decrease. Under the new rules, no additional short-term rentals are permitted within a 250-foot radius from an existing rental. However, this does not apply to existing permitted rentals. “These guidelines focus on informing tenants of the behavior expected of these visitors within residential districts,” Skidmore explains. Included are such common courtesies as being respectful to neighbors, keeping noise down after 10 pm, and cleaning up after pets. “In order to obtain an annual license, STR owners and managers must agree to acknowledge the Good Neighbor Policies and assure that these policies are shared with tenants to inform them of their responsibilities as renters.” Still, the new policies bring vacation rentals more in line with other businesses in terms of community input and fee structures. Under the new rules, those interested in renting out their residentially-zoned properties on a short-term basis for 30 or more days each year must obtain a “Type 2” permit. (Vacation rentals in some other zones—like commercial or mixed employment—or which will be rented out for fewer than 30 days, require only a “Type 1” permit.) Type 2 applications require, among other things, notification to property owners within 250 feet, posting a sign on the property, and allowing neighbors to weigh in with written comment and even appeal to a hearings officer. Because it is a more involved process that uses more City staff time, the price tag is steeper, too. These permits will cost $1,749, the same price as a home occupation permit. All short-term rentals, with the exception of “owner occupied short-term rentals” renting for fewer than 30 days a year, also will need an annual operating license. While the exact fee for that has not yet been set, it’s expected to fall in the $200 to $300 range. At the end of the day, most aspiring vacation rental owners—existing rentals have been grandfathered in for now—will be on the hook for about $2,000 in City fees to get into the game. Moreover, those permits will be contingent on new density requirements adopted by the City—restrictions that are somewhat stricter than those recommended by the Task Force and the Planning Commission. The Task Force would have allowed 5 to 10 percent of the properties in a 250-foot radius to be vacation rentals, while the Planning Commission landed on 7 percent. The City Council opted to allow just the one.

Marriage equality will continue to be the law of the land in Oregon, despite the best efforts of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM). The conservative activist group, which opposes extending civil marriage rights to same-sex couples, had asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in Oregon. The court’s response: “Petition denied.” No one seems surprised that the court declined to get involved. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to take on a slate of marriage cases from Michigan, Kentucky, and Tennessee on April 28. The court will consider whether states are obligated to perform and/or recognize samesex marriages. A ruling is expected in June or July, but regardless of the outcome, it is not likely to affect marriage law in Oregon. The Oregon Association of Chiefs of Police is throwing its support behind legislation aimed at ending profiling. House Bill 2002 would require the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission to “establish independent procedures for receiving and recording profiling complaints.” The House Committee on the Judiciary also approved an amendment April 20 that would create a Law Enforcement Working Group to help roll out new policies. The bill now moves on to the Sub Joint Ways and Means Committee on Public Safety, then the full Ways and Means Committee, and then to a vote from the full legislature. Speaking of law and disorder, the Oregon Senate will hold a lengthy public hearing April 22 on Senate Bill 941, which would require background checks for the private sale of firearms. The Senate was criticized after initially only offering two hours for public comment, reportedly leaving out members of the public who had travelled long distances in order to give their testimony. Wednesday’s open public hearing will run from 3 to 7 pm. The legislature has also held public hearings on bills relating to paid sick leave and minimum wage.

But what started as a year for the married duo hasn’t stopped. They continue to play their progressive blend of indie rock and folk in venues across the nation. With the recent release of their second album, We Found Roads, the duo writes about leaving everything behind and finding new paths together. With beautiful, soulful harmonies, it feels as though there’s a full band playing a sound that often incorporates a ukulele and glockenspiel. 10:30 pm. Friday, April 24. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St. $3. FOUR PEAS IN A POD. WILDERNESS, 4/29.

Some bands try too hard to create synergy, to harmonize their vocals and find a groove. Not Wilderness. Like the name suggests, the band’s sound is a bit chaotic. Jared Nelson Smith’s guitar occasionally races off toward Lynyrd Skynyrd Americana, while drummer Bradley David Parsons holds down a slamming beat, creating a musical diversity that can be as unkempt—and beautiful—as wilderness itself. And, it is also that slightly un-conventional and tough-to-categorize (rock and roll? noise-pop? alt-country?) that sets the Bend four-piece band apart. “It’s not jazz,” says Parsons, explaining the push-and-pull of the musicians’ different styles, “but there is a yin and yang.” We’re talking at Crow’s Feet Commons, where Smith day-jobs as the event manager. He jumps into the conversation and explains that into each of their songs, they always structure some space where Parsons, a self-described thrash drummer, can “go ape shit.” Wilderness released its first album nearly two years ago, and on Wednesday, April 29, the band plays a local show at McMenamin’s Old St. Francis School, where they will be pre-promoting their sophomore album. The show kicks off an IndieGoGo campaign to help fund the upcoming album, and they promise to incorporate some of their new songs into the set that night. “I think that it will be very different, definitively not a cut-andpaste of the last album,” says Parsons about this next album. “But,” he adds, “still the Wilderness sound.” The underpinnings for a new sound are understandable. In 2012, when Wilderness produced its first album, Smith had recently ar-

rived in Bend with his wife, Nora, who sings and plays keyboards in the band. At the time, they were fleeing Los Angeles, and looking for a place to settle. Smith had a successful career there as a musician, playing with Ry Cooder and opening for the likes of the Foo Fighters, brushing with fame but never quite grabbing the brass ring of rock-and-roll stardom. Most of the songs on the first album were autobiographical. The other musicians—Parsons as a drummer and Nick Graham as the bass player—were brought in after the songs were largely written, and joined the band for the recording. “A Craig’s List success story,” quips Parsons. But the new sound draws out more from each member, and plays off each others’ backgrounds and musical disciplines. “Controlled chaos,” says Smith. “A Venn diagram,” adds Parson. Wilderness plans to record the album in May and, in August kick off a tour that will follow a northern route all the way back to Smith’s home town in Upper Peninsula, Michigan.

Letters From the Sky BY JOSH GROSS

On Tax Day, April 15, this reporter’s new personal hero, Doug Hughes, landed a one-man ultralight helicopter on the lawn of the U.S. capitol. But he wasn’t any ordinary Doug Hughes; he was an actual mailman who had come bearing mail for all members of Congress, letters in protest of the influence of money in politics. If that’s not brassy enough to deserve a mixtape, then we don’t know what is. So here it is Doug: a collection of songs about the mail, letters, and the postman, everything from The Marvelettes to 2Pac. To deepen the theme, it starts with “Letters From the Sky,” by Civil Twilight, and ends with “Letters to the President,” by Hawk Nelson. SCAN THE QR CODE

The Love Rollercoaster BY TAYLOR THOMPSON

Yesterday, I was the greatest mom in the world. Today, I’ll be starring in the dramatic, must-see production of Evil Mommy and the Unlucky Boy Who Never Gets His Way. It’s official. My five-year-old son has fulfilled all height requirements, led me to the front of the line, and dragged me aboard the love rollercoaster. And let me tell ya, I just found six more gray hairs. In my twenty-something years of relationship-building, I’ve yet to find a connection more complicated (and extreme) than the one between a mother and her child. All the intense love and pure happiness, the great pride and genuine delight—it’s an exhilarating high. But what goes up… In an instant, that magnificent view from the top is shadowed by dark clouds of disfavor and heartbreak. And with its stomach-dropping declines and rickety turns, the ride down is anything but smooth. It’s an unmerciful low. Enter: the bad guy. No one cares that Mama-bear was queen of the world just two minutes ago, because those disciplinary tactics she just implemented appear to have led to the queen’s demise.

Yes, it’s totally unfair. But along with a mother’s job as provider/caretaker comes the unpopular role of disciplinarian. And what kid likes to hear the word no? Mom’s wisdom doesn’t mean crap to the small child who didn’t get cake before dinner, or a two-day break from brushing his teeth. He simply views her as the reason behind each of his disastrous misfortunes. And look! Here comes Protagonist Dad and Grandma, the Heroes—just in time—to save the day with a fun new game, donuts, and a pet unicorn. Personally, I’m sick of being the bad guy. I’m exhausted from taking the brunt of all the whining, disrespect, and ungratefulness. And although I should know better than to take offense to my five-year-old’s behavior, I find myself feeling a bit hurt. I do everything for this kid, and I have since day one. Not to mention I—oh wait, what’s that? I’m being summoned for a hug, three kisses and a thank you for dinner? And I’m the “best mom ever” again? God, I can practically hear the clickclick-click of the rollercoaster gears. I can see us there—smiling and laughing, just filling up on all that maternally-bonded oxytocin. I am fun. I am admired. I am needed. I am Supermom once more. And in this moment, I can ignore the giant, vertical plunge up ahead. I can ignore the upside-down, crap-your-pants loopty-loops down below. I can ignore the fate-deciding flower petals falling from my fingertips as we approach the edge. Because right now, he loves me, and that is enough to keep me on this ride.

The School for Scandal’s timeless themes of gossip BY PHIL BUSSE

18TH CENTURY REALITY TV. PHOTO BY CTC. First performed a year after America declared independence from Britain, Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s The School for Scandal proves that corsets and powdered wigs may have gone out of style, but love, jealousy, and gossip are enduring topics. Sheridan was only 26 when the play was first produced in London; a biting satire and a tale too tangled to describe in, really, any fewer words than the entire script. On Friday, The School for Scandal opens at Cascades Theatrical Company. “The web of deceit is so much fun,” says director Brian Johnson, who chose the play because of its playfulness. We are sitting in the theater an hour before a final dress rehearsal, and joined by one of the actors, Ben Larson, a 25-year-old actor who plays “the bad guy” in the story; the one who lies, cheats, flirts and stirs the pot. “In the age of Facebook,” says Larson, “we’ve all seen the destructive power of what we say. It is cool this guy 300 years ago was exploring the same idea.” “What makes this a classic is addressing gossip, liars, and the healing power of real love,” adds Johnson. Yet, although the themes are enduring, the set and the period pieces are not quite authentic period pieces. “We re-imagined the 1800s,” explains Johnson. “Since the play lends itself to being more outlandish, I wanted to create something more slapstick.” Door-

A Girl and a Gun Phillip Margolin’s latest thriller muses on a six-shooter BY CHRISTIE HINRICHS

Portland author Phillip Margolin has made a name for himself in the world of noir fiction, with a particular emphasis on the legal aspects of the genre. His historical drama Worthy Brown’s Daughter is a heartbreaking story of slavery and murder set in 19th-century Oregon. “Writing Worthy Brown’s Daughter,” he explained, “was a huge challenge because I had no idea what day-to-day life was like in Oregon in 1860. To make the book realistic I had to learn what life was like in 1860 in Oregon and what it was like to practice law in the 1860s. I found out that lawyers and judges had to know the law and

ways are painted in bright swirling colors, definitely more Tim Burton than Queen Anne. The one major challenge that the play did present, though, was casting—namely, it demands 23 actors, and with two other large productions currently ongoing in Bend, that is a tall order. Larson himself grew up in Central Oregon, and attended Portland State before returning to Bend. He planned to attend graduate school at NYU, but says he has foregone that opportunity to stay here, and has since acted in several plays. Usually cast as “the nice guy,” this is Larson’s first time as a villain, he says somewhat gleefully. The ability to pull off such a massive production, says Johnson, is testimony to the growing talent pool. Moreover, he adds, the growing number of strong productions is only encouraging more people to attend theater. “It’s so exciting to see the way the theater community is exploding,” adds Larson. The School for Scandal 7:30 pm Friday & Satuday, 2 pm Sunday Through May 9 Cascades Theatrical Company 148 NW Greenwood Ave. $20 general, $13 student how to shoot a gun.” His most recent offering, Woman with a Gun, follows an aspiring novelist who becomes captivated by a stunning photo in an art museum. The photo reveals a woman from behind, standing at the edge of darkness, with a six-shooter held behind her back. Who is this woman? Has she killed her husband on their wedding night? Is she going to commit suicide? Stricken with curiosity, the novelist is drawn deeper and deeper into the case, hoping to discover the details of a murder that was never solved. Margolin has written 18 novels, many of them New York Times bestsellers. Each displays a “behind the scenes” aspect of criminal behavior, which derives from his long background as a criminal defense attorney who has handled more than 30 murder cases. Margolin will be in Central Oregon to read from his work; 6:30 pm, Friday, April 24, Paulina Springs Books, Sisters; 6:30 pm, Saturday, April 25, Paulina Springs Books, Redmond.

When people ask me if I make art, I pretty much always answer, “No.” If someone describes me as “creative,” I will usually scrunch up my nose and make a self-deprecating comment. I do like to spend time creating things that are visually and or intellectually beautiful—shadow boxes or short stories or terrariums—but I decided at some point that I am predominately interested in craft, not art. I like art, but I also like the idea of craft, of making something imbued with function as well as beauty. Plus, I’m not very good with a paintbrush or a musical instrument. Lately, however, I’ve realized that the line between what we call “fine art” and what we call “craft” is blurry—maybe even erroneous. The distinction between the two categories has long been subverted by the work of fiber artists, ceramicists, graffiti artists, graphic designers, and others who work outside of more traditional fields like painting, music, sculpture, and dance. Western cultural paradigms favor fine art that is divorced from function. Is this the effect of a patriarchal system (crafts such as weaving have traditionally been considered “women’s work” after all) or perhaps a less sinister preference for art that is concerned with emotions, ideas, and the intangible? Some people argue that art is about human expression and soul, while craft is concerned with utility and skill. I believe that both, possessing unique aesthetic qualities derived from the intent of a creator, can be considered art. I’m happy to do away with the high art hierarchy altogether and celebrate anything as art so long as it carries some kind of emotional currency or creative energy. I’ve been thinking about the ambiguity of terms like “fine art” and “craft” a lot as I cover my “Art Watch” beat. I know it might raise some artsy eyebrows, but I am choosing to dedicate this space to the ReStore First Annual Furniture Flip Design Challenge. The challenge is a fundraiser benefitting Bend Area Habitat for Humanity’s affordable housing efforts that puts local DIY-ers to task repurposing and upcycling items from the Habitat ReStore. The winners will be announced at a public showing April 25 at 7 pm at Armature, where all entries will also be available for sale. While it may not meet your standard for “art,” the crafty and creative folks competing with their designs will be channeling untold skills and emotions into a creation that has both vision (of the trash-to-treasure kind) and function (as home goods). And then there is the potential for political and environmental impact. According to Bend Habitat, “In 2014 the ReStore redirected approximately 2.6 million pounds of materials from the dump to people’s homes and businesses.” If art must be expected to make a statement, what better form of social commentary than to transform a piece of trash into a piece of art?

New Season, New Breweries

Three world-class breweries begin Bend distribution BY KEVIN GIFFORD

Summer, and the vanloads of tourists it brings each year, isn’t too far away. But this month, Central Oregon is facing an invasion of a different sort—an influx of excellent breweries hitting local shelves and tapwalls for the first time. For hopheads, the highlight of the group is undoubtedly Alpine Beer Company. Based in the foothills east of San Diego, Alpine started in 1999 as a tiny brewery that quickly won the hearts and minds of Californian beer fanatics. Green Flash purchased them last year, and it’s now expanded to the point where you can find Alpine almost nationwide. McIlhenney’s Irish Red, a solid, reliable red ale on tap now at Platypus Pub, is theoretically Alpine’s flagship beer, but it’s their India pales that wow the crowds—the Pure Hoppiness Double IPA is a bitter, piney delight, and Nelson, while lighter, uses New Zealand-grown hops and European rye to create a juicy, citric, irresistible package. If sour beer is more your style for the upcoming hot season, Almanac Beer Company might be your preference. Based in the Bay Area, Almanac specializes in “seasonal artisan ales,” most using locally-grown fruit and grain. Farmer’s Reserve Strawberry (alongside its cousin Blueberry) is available now in Bend, a sour blond ale aged in wine barrels and flavored with strawberries from the Santa Cruz coast. Put your nose to it, and you’re rewarded with deliriously heavy wine and berry notes; have a sip, and it almost feels like you’re swimming in a vat of this year’s berry crop. It’s pricey, at around $11 for a 12-ounce bottle, but worth the investment. If that’s not impressive enough for you, how about Central Oregon’s first shot at the brewery that pioneered wild-fermented beer in the first place? Denver-based Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project is debuting here in a few weeks’ time, and its line of ales—all made with Brettanomyces yeast, all aged in oak—range from light and refreshing to almost liqueur-like in its complexity. They recently collaborated with Crux on a wild sour golden ale, but if you didn’t know that, forget about finding a bottle now—most of it went to Portland, with only two cases reaching the Bend taproom, where it sold out in 10 minutes. Make some more, guys!

A year ago, a local beverage manufacturer was going by the name of Kombucha Mama, and boasting a label with a lotus flower. It was a name and image that reflected the simple beginning for the company. ‘’It was about two moms taking care of the world,” said Jamie Danek, one of the two original “mamas.” But as the drink’s popularity grew, so did the company, from two women to more than 30 employees, and distribution expanded outside of Bend, reaching all the way to northern California and even Austin, Texas. Over the course of several months leading up to February 2014, Danek worked with local ad agency tbd to consider new names, and a year ago, they rebranded to Humm. “It’s all about energy in a bottle,” said Danek, who had just landed in Los Angeles where the company is expanding. The name also echoes the sound of the brewery itself and the energy level of its employees, she pointed out. She goes on to assure, “Maybe the label looks a little more mainstream, but the people and the recipe have not changed since day one.” The subsequent name change to Humm, however, has been a case-study in branding: The new name and branding has been more approachable for many people who may otherwise shrug off kombucha as a hippie drink. A year ago, Danek says, Kombucha Mama was selling five to eight cases a week at Whole Foods in Bend. With the new name, within a month those sales skyrocketed to 75 to 80. “This happened over night,” she exclaimed. “We had no idea the impact that this brand would have.” “We are in an entirely new market of people,” she added, pointing out that Humm is the number two seller of kombucha drinks in convenience stores. “The company stayed the same, but more people are at the party,” said Danek. “Humm seems a bit easier for people to get.” Humm Birthday Party 10 am-5 pm, Friday, April 24 Humm Kombucha, 1125 NE 2nd, Bend Discounted growler fills, and $3 kombucha floats

Out of the Fire Into the Frying Pan BY CORBIN GENTZLER

Many of us think of wildfire as being a destructive force, but fire plays a number of important ecological roles in the landscape. The ponderosa forests we know and love here are dependent upon periodic wildfire for nutrient cycling, revegetation, and to prevent the buildup of fuels that, given enough time, will produce the sort of stand-replacing fire that leaves forests vulnerable to invasive species colonization and transition into entirely different ecosystems. The ancient interplay between wildfire and mixed conifer forests has also provided foragers with delicious sustenance for years. Some of the more tangible fruits of wildfire, for those of us who aren’t (yet) ecologists, are coming into season now in the fire disturbed areas to our west. A word of caution though: don’t put anything in your mouth if you don’t know, with certainty, what it is.

Morels These funny-looking fungi resemble an elongated honeycomb or some kind of small loofah on a stem. I happened upon some of these woodsy, nutty-tasting mushrooms out off the McKenzie Highway near Sisters last spring. You are most likely to find these on east-facing slopes, near the base of standing trees. If you happen to catch this article on Wednesday, April 22, the Central Oregon Mushroom Club is hosting a How to Find Morels Talk at 6 pm at the Deschutes Historical Society. Learn more at Fiddleheads So named, because that is precisely what they look like, these are the new growth of the bracken fern (Pteridium aquilinum). Bracken ferns can be found throughout virtually any of the sun-patched, fire-disturbed areas of the Deschutes National Forest. These curly-cued treats taste best when sautéed with a little butter and garlic (but what doesn’t, really?), and have a grassy, nutty flavor, not dissimilar to asparagus. Fireweed Also known as Epilobium angustifolium, this is the Leatherman of plant species. Known to indigenous people in the Pacific Northwest for centuries, this plant has been successfully eaten, used as a burn balm, made into teas and jellies, used as tinder and mattress stuffing, and, because of its nitrogen fixing properties, used to reclaim former mining sites. But, how does it taste? That depends on when you harvest it and how you eat it, but ranges from sweet to bitter. Check out this PDF online for excellent fireweed recipes from the University of Alaska Fairbanks:

FILM SHORTS CHAPPIE While Chappie definitely looks like Short Circuit for the 21st century, because South African director Neill Blomkamp’s name is on it, we’re also likely to get some social commentary spritzed throughout bursts of ultra-violence. A police droid is stolen by revolutionaries (played in part by the members of Die Antwoord) and reprogramed to feel human emotion. Naturally, the government fears and hates Chappie, and sets about to destroy the robot and everything it stands for.

DANNY COLLINS Danny Collins tells the story of Danny Collins, an aging rocker played by aging actor Al Pacino. After basically giving up on the music business, Collins finds an undelivered letter to him from John Lennon, which sends him on a spiritual journey to rediscover his family, his love of music and women, and all the boring shit these movies are filled with. As long as this movie wakes Pacino up and puts some fire in his belly for acting, then it has my vote. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT Even if you try to give Divergent (and its sequels) the benefit of the doubt that they aren’t just Hunger Games rip-offs, by the time you reach the end of the first book your optimism will be shredded. While Shailene Woodley is a fine actress, the Teen Post-Apocalyptic genre hits the wall pretty hard here and flails every which way with its pat ideas about freedom, individuality, and painfully generic love. In this installment the factions start going to war and Kate Winslet cashes extra paychecks. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX FURIOUS 7 While I wouldn’t stand up for the first four films in this franchise, Fast Five and Fast and Furious Six are both smorgasbords of explosions and jaw-dropping stunts, worthy of being mentioned alongside the best action films of the last 15 years. Furious 7 pits Paul Walker (in his final screen role), Vin Diesel, Mr. The Rock and family against a pissed off Jason Statham. Expect cars flying through the air, Mr. The Rock with a mini-gun and Statham kicking our heroes in their faces. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond

Melissa Etheridge · “ This is M.E.”

GET HARD Will Ferrell is a white collar criminal headed to San Quentin and Kevin Hart is the guy he hires to train him how to be tough for prison. Since Hart has never been to prison and Ferrell only hires him because he’s black, I’m assuming mildly racist hijinks will ensue. With some of the writers behind the brilliant Key and Peele scripting, this could be a return to form for Ferrell and the vehicle Hart needs to show how funny he can be when not improvising.

HOME Home is the new film from DreamWorks Animation, home to How to Train Your Dragon, Kung-Fu Panda and Shrek One through Fifty. This one tells the story of an alien (voiced by The Best Amigo Steve Martin) whose race is hiding from their mortal enemy on Earth, which they decide to invade. Obviously, wacky hi-jinks ensure because Jim Parsons is also part of the voice cast and that man has two modes: wacky and fauxnerdy. If they exterminate the human race by accident, then this should be a children’s classic. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Theatre

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE The new film from the madcap bastard behind Layer Cake, Stardust, and X-Men: First Class, Matthew Vaughn, Kingsman has Colin Firth using a bulletproof umbrella and beating a bunch of ass while never

breaking a sweat. It also has Samuel L. Jackson dressing like Jay-Z, talking with a lisp and hellbent on world domination. I mean, sure, this could be one of the worst movies ever made, but it won’t be. It will be gloriously, batshit insane. Old Mill

LEVIATHAN On one hand a social satire, on the other a dark look at small town political maneuvering on a micro and macro level.

PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 The sequel to the art-house triumph, Paul Blart: Mall Cop The First. This time Mr. Blart uses his Oxford educated wits to just hang out for 90 minutes and have a conversation about post-modernism and how it relates to millennial values and more, while sipping 70-year old scotch and listening to Clint Mansell compositions. Wait, nope, this is more lowest-common-denominator garbage for people to enjoy while trying to take their mind off their type-two diabetes. I wonder how many times his balls get hit.

TRUE STORY Based on a true story involving an Oregon man who kills his wife and kids and the former New York Times reporter whose identity he stole, True Story explores the line between truth and lies and the risks inherent in getting too close to a powerful manipulator. Starring Jonah Hill as reporter Michael Finkel and James Franco as convicted murderer Christian Longo. Moral of the story: Never trust a death row killer who has stolen your identity. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX UNFRIENDED If real-life stories of harassment, assault, and suicide aren’t enough to convince you that online bullying is bad news, this of-themoment horror flick should drive that point home (and maybe convince you to quit social media altogether).

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS A hilarious mockumentary about your average crappy roommate situation...except these roommates are vampires. From the creative team behind Flight of the Conchords, this hilarious horror comedy shreds each generation’s concept of vampires going back to the demonic Nosferatu up to the sparkling Twilight tomfoolery. This flick has more laughter per-minute that most films get in an entire running time. Tin Pan Theater WHILE WE’RE YOUNG If you’re into mumblecore—those films where the emphasis is on regular people having regular conversations about regular things—you might like filmmaker Noah Baumbach’s latest. Starring Ben Stiller, Adam Driver, Naomi Watts, and Amanda Seyfried, the film has to do with cross-generational friendships, documentary filmmaking, and hipsters. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

Okay, everybody…on three: One…two… three…REALITY SHOWS EAT DONKEY BOTTOM! Grrrr, I hate reality shows sooo much. Yes, I’ll allow that some reality shows provide a certain grotesque, pornographic pleasure; for example, “Real Housewives,” “Dance Moms,” and “Masterchef Junior.” I’m also a disgruntled fan of the poorly acted dramatic recreations on Investigation Discovery’s “I (Almost) Got Away With It” whenever I suffer from stomach flus or debilitating hangovers. HOWEVER! Any show with Kardashians, tiny beauty pageant contestants/football players, parents with a billion kids, gold/ ghost hunters, loggers, “pickers,” jackass chefs, horny bachelor/bachelorettes, house flippers, and morally bereft hillbillies only proves my ultimate point: Those REALITY SHOWS EAT DONKEY BOTTOM! I’m pretty sure reality shows would eat less donkey bottom if they mixed up their formats a bit. Practically every one of these series force cast members to become either heroes or “bitches,” orchestrate moments for the sole purpose of using their “record scratch” sound effect, and almost always end in a gratuitously saccharine “hug moment” where everyone involved learned “an important lesson”—which is about as far from reality as I can imagine. (To watch a perfect parody of these series, you must not miss Comedy Central’s “The Kroll Show,” in which comedian/actor Nick Kroll and a cast of wildly funny people absolutely SKEWER the worst of reality TV. It does not eat any amount of donkey bottom.) All that being said…this week I’m going to recommend that you watch a new reality TV show. And no, I’m NOT a hypocrite, but you’re a BUTTHOLE for thinking so! The show is called “The Prancing Elites Project”—you’re already intrigued, aren’t you?—and it debuts Wed., April 23 at 10 pm on Oxygen.


10 PM FX THE AMERICANS Season finale! Elizabeth and Paige take a dangerous trip to Rooskie Land! 10 PM OXY THE PRANCING ELITES PROJECT Debut! The Elites teach some wicked dance moves to guest NeNe Leakes!


9 PM ABC SCANDAL Cyrus tries to make America love Mellie again. (And pictures of her holding cute kittens aren’t working!) 10 PM FX THE COMEDIANS Billy and Josh are nominated for the same award… and cue extremely awkward situation.


9 PM ABC BRUCE JENNER: THE INTERVIEW Diane Sawyer interviews Bruce Jenner, and…nothing about this is going to turn out well. 11 PM IFC COMEDY BANG! BANG! Scott Aukerman welcomes special guest Lil Jon, who I’m sure will have a lot to scream about.


9 PM STARZ OUTLANDER Claire and Jamie visit his sister. (Get out the boxing gloves!)

The Prancing Elites is a black, gay, non-gender conforming dance troupe (already interesting enough, but it’s about to get wayyyy more interesting)…from MOBILE, ALABAMA. (Uh-oh.) They wear tiny cheerleader-style spandex costumes, white go-go boots, and when they do their booty-droppin’ dance routines at local sporting events and parades (often uninvited)? GURRRRL—IT GETS FIERCE UP IN HURRR! They are monumentally talented dancers who easily blow away the dance troupes officially representing the teams—but it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that their particular brand of fierceness (and color and sexuality) isn’t exactly…ummm… welcome in the deep South. And that is what “The Prancing Elites Project” is all about: the five members of this extraordinary dance team practicing and performing, reacting to the firestorm of hate thrown at them, and choosing to continue dancing anyway…because it’s where their passions lie. While the Elites became an internet sensation in 2013, they originally formed in 2004 as a group for those who’d been denied entry into dance troupes because of their gender. And despite the ugly comments they receive, the Elites continue to keep an unbelievably positive attitude, and are determined to win the haters over to their side. And THAT, my friends, is why THIS a reality show you might not feel guilty about watching. Check it out, because not only does it NOT eat donkey bottom, its meals are 100 percent donkey free. Tweets gettin’ FIERCE up in hurr! @WmSteveHumphrey


9:30 PM SHO HAPPYISH Debut! Grouchy Thom (Steve Coogen) is old and unhappy, so he tries to find happiness—which only makes him more unhappy. 10 PM AMC MAD MEN Roger asks Joan for help with an (ahem) “clerical error.” (Somebody’s going to prison, isn’t he?)

your biggest excuse? Or rather, what is your THICKEST, SICKEST, MOST DEBILITATING EXCUSE? We all have one: a reason we tell ourselves about why it’s difficult to live up to our potential; a presumed barrier that we regard as so deeply rooted that we will never be able to break its spell on us. Maybe it’s a traumatic memory. Maybe it’s a physical imperfection or a chronic fear. In accordance with the current astrological omens, Cancerian, you’d be wise to do an audit and reassessment of your own LAMEST EXCUSE. I suspect you now have insight about it that you’ve never had before. I also think you have more power than usual to at least partially dismantle it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I usually have no objection to your devoted concern (I won’t use the phrase “manic obsession”) with security and comfort. But there are rare phases in every Taurus’s life cycle when ironclad stability becomes a liability. Cruising along in a smooth groove threatens to devolve into clunking along in a gutless rut. Now is such a phase. As of this moment, it is healthy for you to seek out splashes of unpredictability. Wisdom is most likely to grow from uncertainty. Joy will emerge from an eagerness to treasure the unknown. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): There may be a flood-like event that will wash away worn-out stuff you don’t need any more. There might be an earthquake-type phenomenon that only you can feel, and it might demolish one of your rotten obstacles. There could be a lucky accident that will knock you off the wrong course (which you might have thought was the right course). All in all, I suspect it will be a very successful week for benevolent forces beyond your control. How much skill do you have in the holy art of surrender? CANCER (June 21July 22): What is

The problem is, a lot of people neglect to redeem their gift cards. They leave them in drawers and forget about them.

Any advantages you’re not capitalizing on? Any assets you’re ignoring? If so, fix the problem.

ing character in a popular TV drama, the producers would be cooking up a spin-off show with you in a starring role. If you were in an indie rock band, you’d be ready to move from performing at 300seat venues to clubs with an audience capacity of 2,000. If you have always been just an average egocentric romantic like the rest of us, you might be on the verge of becoming a legend in your own mind—in which case it would be time to start selling T-shirts, mugs, and calendars with your image on them. And even if you are none of the above, Leo, I suspect you’re ready to rise to the next level.

Your ultimate test will be to freely give your tenderness and compassion and empathy—without any preconditions or expectations. For the sake of your own integrity and mental health, be steadfast in your intention to always strike the first blow for peace, love, and understanding. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It will soon be that time when you are halfway between your last birthday and your next birthday. I invite you to make this a special occasion. Maybe you can call it your anti-birthday or unbirthday. How to celebrate? Here are some ideas: 1. Imagine who you would be if you were the opposite of yourself. 2. Write a list of all the qualities you don’t possess and the things you don’t need and the life you don’t want to live. 3. Try to see the world through the eyes of people who are unlike you. 4. Extend a warm welcome to the shadowy, unripe, marginal parts of your psyche that you have a hard time accepting, let alone loving. 5. Any other ways you can think of to celebrate your anti-birthday? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As I climb the first hill along my regular hike, both sides of the path are dominated by a plant with glossy, three-lobed leaves. They’re so exuberant and cheerful, I’m tempted to caress them, even rub my face in their bright greenery. But I refrain, because they are poison oak. One touch would cause my skin to break out in an inflamed rash that would last for days. I encourage you, too, to forgo contact with any influence in your own sphere that is metaphorically equivalent to the alluring leaves of the poison oak.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Today the

French Capricorn painter Henri Matisse (1869-1954) is regarded as a foremost pioneer of modern art. Some critics say his innovative influence on painting nearly matched Picasso’s. But during the first part of the 20th century, his work often provoked controversy. When a few of his paintings appeared at a major exhibition in Chicago, for example, local art students were shocked by what they called its freakishness. They held a mock trial, convicted Matisse of artistic crimes, and burned his painting “Blue Nude” in effigy. I don’t expect that you will face reactions quite as extreme as that in the coming weeks, Capricorn. But it will make sense to express yourself with such forceful creativity and originality that you risk inciting strong responses.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Leonardo da

Vinci had skills in many fields, ranging from botany to engineering to cartography, but he is best known as a painter. And yet in his 67 years on the planet, he finished fewer than 40 paintings. He worked at a very gradual pace. The “Mona Lisa” took him 14 years! That’s the kind of deliberate approach I’d like to see you experiment with in the coming weeks, Aquarius. Just for a while, see what it’s like to turn down your levels of speed and intensity. Have you heard of the Slow Food Movement? Have you read Carl Honoré’s book In Praise of Slowness? Do you know about Slow Travel, Slow Media, and Slow Fashion? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Modern movies don’t scrimp on the use of the f-bomb. Actors in The Wolf of Wall Street spat it out 569 times. The word-that-rhymes-with-cluck was heard 326 times in End of Watch, while Brooklyn’s Finest

racked up 270 and This Is the End erupted with an even 200. But this colorful word hasn’t always been so prominent a feature. Before 1967, no actor had ever uttered it on-screen. That year, Marianne Faithfull let it fly in the film I’ll Never Forget What’s’isname. In the coming weeks, Pisces, I invite you to break a taboo that’s maybe not as monumental as Faithfull’s quantum leap, but still fabulously fun and energizing. Be a liberator! End the repression! Release the blocked vitality!

Shake It Till You Make It


I’m new to online dating. I’m a nice, good-looking guy with a good job, but I have a muscular condition that causes me to shake a lot. I’m not looking to fool anyone, but I don’t want to advertise my condition on my profile because it’s so personal. My last date was several months ago, and it ended with her saying I was “creepy” because of my disability—a condition I was born with. —Bummed

Apparently, this last woman you dated is so used to wearing her heart on her sleeve that she failed to notice that most of it broke off (and is maybe still lying there with her driver’s-side mirror at the Burger King drive-thru). However, your tremors become public the moment you walk into a place to meet a woman—which is actually the perfect time to make a crack like, “Is it freezing in here, or do I have a muscular disorder?” Maybe while wearing a T-shirt with “That’s my groove thing I’m shaking.” I call it “The Callahan Approach,” after my late quadriplegic cartoonist friend, John Callahan, who buzzed around Portland in a motorized wheelchair, cracking jokes like, “See my new shoes? I hear they’re very comfortable.” Callahan understood that a person’s disability often becomes a big wall between them and the rest of us because we’re afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing. But through his refusal to, uh, pussychair around the subject, Callahan told people how the disabled want to be treated, which is “just like everyone else.” Adopting a more Callahan-esque attitude—using humor—would allow you to set the tone for your condition to be just a fact about you instead of a fact people pity you for. And by offering to answer questions they might have, you can shrink any big scary mysteries down to a more manageable size. (c)2015, Amy Alkon, all rights reserved. Got a problem?

“I learned from incredible professors who really cared about my education and my overall success.” - ERIN ZURFLU

ERIN ZURFLU “Once admitted to medical school, I realized my educational path was very unique. Many of my classmates came from Ivy League schools and their stories of crowded classes, horribly competitive classmates and astronomical debt left me speechless. They spoke of office hours and classes led by teaching assistants with little access to their actual professors, and difficulty getting good letters of recommendation as they had no real face time with their science faculty.




Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer Degree & Certificate of Completion, Practical Nursing

“I contrasted this with my experience at COCC where I learned from incredible professors who really cared about my education and my overall success. I thought of several of my professors from COCC whom I still consider important mentors and good friends, and I thanked my lucky stars that I stayed in Bend where I had so many opportunities to find my way with the support of so many incredible people.”

ERIN ZURFLU, M.D., ANESTHESIOLOGY RESIDENT PGY-3 (Post Graduate Year 3 of training), University of Colorado

Tyler Lankford, 21, entered a bakery with a loaded and cocked revolver, pointed it at the 58-yearold clerk and demanded money, according to police in McKeesport, Pa. The clerk emptied the register, but when the robber picked up the money, he put the gun on the counter. The clerk grabbed it and chased away the robber, whom police identified from surveillance video. (Pittsburgh’s KDKA-TV) Casey Hueser, 30, pulled into a driveway, left the car running and entered the house, police in St. Joseph, Mo., said. When homeowner Marti Wilson returned, she saw the car, removed the ignition keys and slashed the tires. She confronted the burglar, who regained the keys during a struggle and drove off. Wilson called police. “His front left tire had a big hole it, and apparently, with my description of the vehicle, and the fact that he wasn’t moving really fast, and then they found a bunch of the rubber out in the road,” she said, “so he kind of left a trail.” (Kansas City’s WDAF-TV)


Verlin Sexton, 48, told authorities investigating a fire that destroyed his garage and damaged his house in Fremont, Ohio, that it started while he was using spray paint and a lighter as a torch to kill a mouse. He also said he went to the garage to smoke, noticed black smoke filling the garage and saw flames in the corner, so he ran to get a pan of water; when he returned, the fire was out of control. Then he said he saw flames in boxes and tried to kick the fire out, but it spread. He was charged with intentionally setting the fire. (Fremont’s The News-Gazette) Scott Kemery, 44, told authorities investigating a car fire in Eastport, N.Y., that he believed his rental car was filled with bedbugs, so he doused the interior with rubbing alcohol. Confident it worked, he got back in the car and lit a cigarette, igniting the alcohol. He fled the vehicle but suffered first- and second-degree burns. The rental car was destroyed, and intense heat from the fire badly damaged two other cars. (Newsday) Mohammed Almarri, 21, illegally entered his neighbor’s apartment in Tampa, Fla., forced the owner to retreat to his 30th-floor balcony, put the owner’s wallet in a microwave oven and turned it on, according to fire officials who responded to a report of a fire and a man trapped on a highrise balcony. The victim told them Almarri also took the victim’s collection of lighters, piled them on the floor next to a small electric heater and turned the heater on. No fire was found, but Almarri was charged with first-degree arson. (Tampa Bay Times)

Now that affluent Chinese have become big-spending travelers, the China National Tourist Administration announced it would document “uncivilized” behavior by travelers abroad who have “tarnished” China’s image and need to “learn a lesson.” Inappropriate behavior includes violating customs, destroying public infrastructure and historic sites, causing disturbances on public transport and participating in gambling and prostitution. The agency said it would compile reports from local tourism bureaus, media reports and the general public and keep records for up to two years. It didn’t specify the nature of any punishment. In February, Thai authorities issued thousands of Chinese-language etiquette manuals after Chinese tourists were caught drying underwear at a temple, kicking a bell at a sacred shrine and washing their feet in a public restroom. (Reuters)


Authorities concerned with large numbers of boarded-up homes in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area because of widespread foreclosures launched a pilot program to disguise the vacant houses by installing vinyl siding with painted doors and windows over the plywood. The program aims to upgrade the aesthetic condition of

the buildings to reduce vandalism and improve nearby property values. (Minneapolis Star Tribune) Officials in Lee County, Fla., proposed cutting down 40 palm trees along the narrow median of a Fort Myers boulevard, citing safety concerns. A vehicle could run off the road and hit a tree, resulting in damage, injury and a possible lawsuit against the county, according to some officials, including county commissioner Cecil Pendergrass. Some residents insist the trees add more safety than danger by defining curves in the road and preventing head-on collisions. Even if the trees are removed, the county has no plans to remove light poles that share the median with the trees. (Fort Myers’s WBBH-TV)


When the Minnesota Department of Transportation replaced signs marking the town of Lindström, it removed the umlaut, twin dots over the “o.” It subsequently rejected town officials’ request to restore the umlaut, citing a rule that names in road signs contain only standard letters. The town said the umlaut honors its Swedish roots and had been on the signs until 2012, when the state removed them for road construction. Gov. Mark Dayton intervened, calling the rule “nonsensical” and ordering the umlauts restored immediately, “even if I have to drive to Lindström and paint the umlauts on the city limit signs myself.” (The New York Times)


The Transportation Security Administration last year collected almost $675,000 in loose change left behind by travelers at security checkpoints. According to TSA figures, that amount is up from $638,000 the year before. Travelers at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport left the most change, $43,000. Overall, the agency has collected $3.5 million in loose change since 2008. (Time)


Aaron Anthony Doney, 19, an inmate at Montana’s Cascade County Detention Center, was charged with possession of a deadly weapon after he reportedly sharpened a plastic spork. (Great Falls Tribune)


Investigators concluded that Elizabeth Rachel Dove, 23, was using her phone to record a video of her son in the backseat of her vehicle when she hit and injured three high-school students in a crosswalk in Gresham, Ore. “(Dove) is holding the phone with her left hand and was making gestures with her right hand,” then there is a 6-second video of the phone bouncing on the front passenger seat and “a child crying in the background,” Deputy District Attorney Annamarie Shoen wrote in a court document, which added that when the teens entered the crosswalk, Dove “appears to have had no hands on the steering wheel.” A police officer determined that Dove hit the victims 1.42 seconds after the video ended.
