I know there is support for Democratic candidates who can connect with rural voters, because I ran two strong races for state representative in North Central Oregon as a “fair frugal farmer” in 2002/6. I am happy to see a Palliative Care physician, Dr. Jenni Neahring from Bend running in this year’s Democratic congressional primary. Dr. Neahring stopped by my farm near Culver recently and we had a good visit. She is passionate about expanding health care access, quality, and affordability.   The Affordable Health Care Act might not be perfect, but it has helped families in Eastern OR as much as any part of our state.   The number of Americans without health care was almost cut in half from 2010 to 2016; 48 million to 28 million.  States like OR that chose to expand Medicaid saw the percent of uninsured cut in half from 18 percent in 2013 to 9 percent in 2016. Despite this, Greg Walden played a leading role gutting ACA and replacing it with “Trumpcare” which will take away insurance from millions of Americans Dr. Jenni Neahring, on the other hand, wants to help improve the Affordable Care Act that has improved the finances and health of so many rural Oregonians.  She has my vote in the Democratic Primary! —Jim Gilbertson

In 2017 I participated in the Deschutes County College, an 8 week course offering citizens of the County an opportunity to learn more about how our County tax dollars are spent, the services the various departments provide and meet our three elected County Commissioners. During the first class each County Commissioner presented and discussed their roles on various committees, their specific interests, background and expertise. I met and spoke with Tammy Baney on more than one occasion about my recent move to Central Oregon and my concerns related to my area. Ms. Baney not only listened, she followed up with me personally. Her presence throughout the classes as well as running a public County meeting were nothing but professional, her demeanor kind and her knowledge of our County very thorough. In contrast, my personal experience with Patti Adair (who is running against incumbent Tammy Baney) was negative. As a fellow participant of our County College group, I found Ms. Adair lacking in listening skills, she did not follow through on a task she assured me she would, and repeatedly carried on distracting personal conversations during presentations by various County departments. I was unclear then of her agenda as a participant in our group, but now can see her political motivations - and I certainly won’t vote for her in this Oregon Primary. Tammy Baney is the only choice for Deschutes County Commissioner Position 3. —Sharon Murphy

IN RESPONSE TO, “CURB YOUR BURGERS,” 4/25 The wolves Eddie Kinnamon refers to being killed did their cow-killings on private land, leased for cattle. Similarly in Fort Klamath, the wolf depredations on cattle were also on private land. Many sportsmen and women don’t mind wolves on public lands eating the deer and elk we pay to manage (look up, Pittman-Robertson Act/Dingall-Johnson Act) via the North American Conservation Model. But, ranchers have a right to (so far) protect their animals whether llama or chicken from predation, and from domestic dogs. Nothing unusual here except “wild” wolves eating private cows. Maybe the wolves didn’t read your letter to the Source Weekly... —Karl J.

BEER I see an article in the Bull about the decline in the growth of craft beers. I personally believe there are too many breweries (very high profit product) and they are killing the goose that laid the golden egg with their pricing of said product. It’s water, with peripherals. Price it reasonably and you will get your growth back.  —Tom Jackson

DUST ISSUE The city of Bend has approximately 7 miles of unimproved dirt surfaced public streets. In years past, these streets likely served the needs of city residents quite adequately. Bend was a small town and there wasn’t a great deal of traffic. In recent years, as we all know, the city has grown a bit. The city has approved enormous subdivisions, built high schools, allowed the construction and expansion of college campuses, built and developed a massive park system and has generally grown at an astonishing rate. While all that was happening, the impact on some of those 7 miles of dirt roads has grown right along with the city. With all that change, the one thing that just hasn’t changed is the city’s attitude toward those dirt roads. That attitude says “we don’t care.” NOTHING has been done to mitigate the pressure on these roads due to the city’s development, save an occasional grading and rolling out to make the road smooth so that people can comfortably drive at any speed they choose. The problem with these roads, and especially the one I live on is, as motorists drive down the street many (not all but many) are

oblivious to the billowing dust cloud in their rear view mirror. They either don’t consider the consequences this cloud has for the residents along the street or in some cases they justify to themselves that it “doesn’t affect me, so why should I care?” So, enter the 14th Street reconstruction project. My street is NW 15th. All roads leading downhill to 14th street are closed, so the only practical way out of the area is south on 15th Street to Galveston. Did I mention that 15th Street is a dirt road? And, that it’s dusty and getting dustier as the warm weather approaches? The project is scheduled to be finished at the end of September (assuming that it’s on time), taking us clear through the dry, dusty and unhealthful summer. Conversations I’ve had so far with the city conclude with the statement that “there just isn’t anything we can do about it.” There is no money in the budget to improve these streets, we can’t restrict traffic in any way, no an additional stop sign or reduced speed limit just isn’t possible (no money to enforce the speed limit anyway). Sorry, you’ll just have to grin and bear it sir…thanks for coming in. While the city has a mountain of money to spend on parks and tourist promotion, those of us who live here and pay our property taxes, just have to make do with the dirt streets, the pot holes and other “inconveniences” and, keep our mouths shut about it. That no longer applies to me and others who live on 15th street. From here on out, until the city starts to take responsibility for past decisions they’ve made which affect us residents, we will not be quiet. Please feel free to join us if you feel the same.

Mild Abandon

BREAKING: Mike Pence super concerned, deeply humbled and firmly resolute.


Jerry—Does it help if someone says “pardon our dust?” I tried, at least. Just a note on your letter, to be extra clear: The budgets of the City of Bend and the Bend Park and Recreation District are separate—so it’s a bit of a moot point to talk about building parks in the same conversation as one about fixing roads. In addition, the margins/percentages of transient room tax the City allocates to tourism promotion are set by the State of Oregon. Just sayin’. Come on in for your gift card to Palate.

Where Can Your E-Bike Go? Not on non-motorized trails in Oregon, for now By Chris Miller

Bend Electric Bike’s Rion O’Grady shows off his balancing skills, performing a no-handed trackstand on 5/5.

vice release, people bought nearly 2 million e-bikes in Europe in 2016. Where you can ride e-bikes E-bikes can help people who have disabilities enjoy the outdoors. However, they can also cause contention between riders who pedal the old-fashioned way, when used where they are forbidden, such as non-motorized trails on U.S. National Forest and Bureau of Land Management lands.

in width and trails open to motorcycles only,” according to a March 2016 memo. However, two states have changed their stance on e-bikes, which can cause confusion for visitors and transplants to Bend. California and Colorado changed the wording in their legislation to allow class one (electrical pedal-assist) bikes on a bike or pedestrian path where bicycles are authorized to travel, according to, a mountain bike advocacy website.

Some say more prominent signage regarding e-bikes may be required on area trails.

Oregon Parks: considering the e-bikes question Right now, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is considering a rule change that would allow e-bikes on certain OPRD trails and roads 8 feet or wider, and along select areas of Oregon beaches. With the growth in e-bikes sales, COTA’s Woody King said his group has done what they could to educate e-MTB riders by putting signs up at trail heads warning e-bikes aren’t allowed on singletrack. “We feel the responsibility falls on those who sell the e-bikes,” King told the Source. “We do our best to educate customers about what’s happening now,” said Sales and Tour Manager Courtney Van Fossen of Bend Electric Bikes. Bend Electric Bikes has information on its website about where e-bikes are allowed. They also give handouts to customers and have a large map in the store that shows where e-MTBs are allowed. As of now, King said COTA places small no-e-bikes signs on posts in the trail systems they manage but wants to make changes so they stand out more. “We don’t think they’re obvious enough,” King said. “We’re going to change the sticker on the posts to read ‘no e-bikes or pedal assists’ in bright letters.” King said he’d also like to see the Forest Service put up its signs about e-bike use at the kiosks in places like Phil’s Trails, Green Gate, and Wanoga. The website of People for Bikes, a

bike industry coalition and foundation, also offers trail etiquette guidelines for e-MTBers, recommending that people don’t ride on trails if the rules are unclear, and to ask local land managers about access to specific trails. It also reminds users of e-MTBs to yield to all non-motorized users, regardless of the direction they’re traveling. On the People for Bikes website, there are recommendations for “five great e-MTB rides” in Oregon. Near Hood River, there’s the 20-mile Post Canyon trail. The Elkhorn Crest Loop trail is a 38.1-mile ride near Sumpter. In the Umatilla National Forest, there are the 18-mile South Fork Walla Walla trail and the 35.3-mile Umatilla Rim trail. In Southern Oregon, there’s the 17.6-mile Grayback-Mule Mountain Loop, in the Rogue National Forest. King said he’s not totally opposed to e-MTBs in the woods. “If the e-bike community banded together and work with the land manager community—make their own trails—I would support this conceptually,” King said. “It’s a hell of a way for folks to keep riding bikes,” Van Fossen said. The public comment period for the question of allowing e-bikes on Oregon Parks lands closed May 7. OPRD will review all submitted comments and present a final recommended rule to the Parks Commission, which will review the rule during its June meeting. SW

One Will Do, Thanks

For kids at Pine Ridge Elementary, two wheels are hardly a challenge. Enter the formidable unicycle By Chris Miller Some were stacking mats like stairs, hopping their unicycles up each mat, then jumping off the top and riding off backwards. One 5th grader rode his unicycle backwards across a plank between two mats, then gracefully jumped off the end—to cheers from his friends. “I’ve been doing this for two years,” 5th grader Jon DeGraaf said proudly. The riders also show off their skills around town, Thompson said. “We usually do the Bend Christmas Parade,” she said. “In the past, we have ridden in the Earth Day Parade, [and] we usually do a group ride in the Old Mill at the end of the school year.” The IUF has 10 levels. The more advanced a rider gets, the more mounts he or she is required to master, as well as the fun stuff: tricks. DeGraaf said he’s learned 180s, and his favorite trick, the lay grab mount. “You get on with the unicycle tilted, and then you step on… you wrap your leg around it and ride,” DeGraff said, smiling. Thompson said in the nearly 10 years she’s been teaching the unicyclists, the school has acquired 38 unicycles, some

Who Needs a Stinkin’ Car?

Four ways to cruise around town with the kiddos, sans internal combustion By Chris Miller


f you thought the only way to tote your kids around town was by car, it’s time to branch out. In honor of the Bike Issue, we tested out four ways to commute with kids, with some help from Bend Electric Bikes. The staff there knows what’s possible—many of them rarely, if ever, drive cars... and they have plenty of kids between them. We also tried each of these options with our own kids, offering our own ratings for things including safety, convenience and comfort. Front Cargo There are a few different options in this category. There’s the “Bakfiets” or a front-loading option that places the front wheel well in front of the rider. It takes a bit of time to get used to riding, but most bike shop employees give the advice to look past the wheel, instead of focusing on it. This option generally has enough room for two small children, or a combo of kid plus groceries. You can use your imagination to build your own front cargo-style bike—once you get the frame—or many shops around town can build you a turn-key bike. Our overall rating: A Safety grade: A Comfort grade: A Convenience grade: B – at times difficult to maneuver the long bike

Rear Cargo For riding kiddos around, parents can get a traditional-type seat, like the Thule Yepp, which places the child in a carseat like structure that attaches directly to most bike frames. Or, you can get a fancier setup with an extended rear cargo area, with the option of adding a railing system around the child’s seat, with footrests and handlebars for older kids. The DIY set can construct virtually any type of cargo trailer off the rear end of bikes like the Yuba Spicy Curry Bosch Electric, which is a Type1 e-assist bike with rear cargo space. If you don’t need e-assist, there’s the Yuba Boda Boda, which has an easy step-over frame. Our overall rating: B+ Safety grade: B+ - Doesn’t feel quite as safe as a bakefiets. Comfort grade: B+ - These are the shortest-length bikes of the set. Convenience grade: B- - Slight concern about bike tipping as you mount the bike

Bike Trailer The Burley-style trailer is still a decent way to get young kids around town. They’re covered—many come with optional rain covers—low to the ground and have good straps to keep kids in place. Parents can tow them behind basically any bike and they’re often found used on sites like Craigslist or even in bike shops that sell used gear. According to Burley’s website, “To ride in a Burley trailer behind a bicycle, the industry standard is to wait until a child is one year old. While each child’s physical development is unique, we recommend that a child should be able to sit upright unattended and hold his or her head up while wearing a bicycle helmet.” While there’s no real age limit for kids in the trailers, it does get a touch hard to get them in and out when they get too tall. And if you’re traveling, the trailer can be a bulky item to take with you. Our overall rating: B Safety grade: B Comfort grade: B Convenience grade: C+ – hard to get kids in and out sometimes

Trailer Bike If your child can already pedal but lacks the stamina for long rides, hook them up to your bike with trailers such as the Burley Piccolo trailercycle, sold at REI. These allow larger kids the freedom of their own seat, but you can still take over in the horsepower realm when kids get tired. Our overall rating: C Safety grade: C – trailercycle can wobble from side to side Comfort grade: C Convenience grade: B – the only option of the set in which kids can actually pedal and contribute horsepower

Sharing the road A refresher on Oregon bicycle laws and basic road etiquette


By Keely Damara

A Finest Flowers in Bend We Deliver!

s the weather warms and Central Oregonians dust off their bicycles, it’s good to remember the rules of the road, as well as some good old-fashioned etiquette. Here are a few basic rules of thumb that are not only good practice—but also Oregon state law: 1. Riding a bicycle against traffic is a big no-no—and dangerous (sorry, mom—you were wrong). 2. Riding on the sidewalk? Yield to pedestrians and use your words (or perhaps a bell) to warn that you’ll be passing. 3. When crossing sidewalks or driveways, riders don’t need to get off bikes—but do need to slow down to a speed that does not exceed “a speed greater than an ordinary walk.” No, that doesn’t mean a brisk power walk. 4. For those on electric bicycles, riding on sidewalks is prohibited altogether. 5. Is there a bike lane? Riders better be using it while on two wheels, with the exception of navigating obstructions, passing other riders, gearing up to take a left turn, staying clear of vehicles in right turn lanes or if they’re riding at near the speed of traffic. 6. Use hand and arm signals. 7. Riding at night? Use a white headlight and a red reflector. For those driving cars, it’s common courtesy to slow down and give bicyclists at least 3 feet of space when passing. State law dictates drivers allow enough space to avoid contact with a bicyclist if they should fall on any road posted with a speed of 35 miles per hour or greater. In a “Driver’s Field Guide to Sharing Oregon’s Roads” on, drivers are urged to use caution when coming out of driveways, alleys and side streets. Do a double take when looking left to make sure no vehicles, including bicyclists, are in the oncoming lane. Take a good look in mirrors when taking a right. There may be a bicyclist in the adjacent bike lane—and they have the right of way. Drivers and bicyclists looking to brush up on how to share the road legally and safely can find the “Driver’s Field Guide to Sharing Oregon’s Roads” and “Oregon Bicyclist Manual” on  SW

Adam Fancher & Cary Griffin Project Bike

Gear stoke: OneUp EDC (Everyday Carry) tool system. “The EDC tool system allows you to carry all of the essential tools needed to stay riding on the trail and avoid hiking your bike back to the trail head. The best part being with some additional set-up you can store the tool system inside of your steerer tube. The EDC Tool System comes with a multi tool, tire lever, spare chain link storage, chain breaker and storage for Co2. If you would like to learn more about the tool and about the cost and process of installing it into the steerer tube of your bike, stop by Project Bike.” Favorite local ride: “Park at the Tumalo Falls Trail Head and ride Northfork, then hop on the transfer trail to Upper Mrazek and down Farewell back to the trail head parking lot.” Project Bike

Dan McGarigle Pine Mountain Sports



Gear stoke this year: “It would have to be Cush Core. [They’re] a locally based company that builds protection for MTB wheel against rim damage and flatting.” Favorite local ride: “For my favorite ride, it’s leaving from Skyliner snow park and riding up Swede to Swampy to South Fork.” Pine Mountain Sports 255 SW Century Dr., Bend

David Marchi Crow’s Feet Commons

Gear stoke this year: “The new cool gear that we think is pretty revolutionary is the introduction of “Plus” sized road tires. Utilizing a 650b (27.5” for you mountain bikers) diameter wheel size instead of the traditional 700c road wheel, and choosing a tire that is greater than 47mm wide will create an effective circumference of a 700c wheel with road tires. Essentially you are able to run a road bike with much lower pressures, wider and more confidence inspiring. These are especially popular and effective for “gravel” road bikes that we have hundreds of miles to access right from town.” Favorite local ride: “Our favorite road ride for these kinds of wheels is the Brooks-Scanlon Road that runs from Bend’s Shevlin Park to Sisters.  From this road, you can launch into a number of mountain bike trails including Peterson Ridge in Sisters and Mrazek trail in Bend. Additionally, the Brooks-Scanlon Road can get you off road to Three Creeks Lake and the Tumalo Reservoir area.   Crow’s Feet Commons

Gear stoke: “We are extremely impressed with the Dynaplug Tubeless Tire Repair Tools. Dynaplug makes a variety of versions, from minimalist to extensive, and they are the most simple and effective tubeless tire plug systems on the market. A must-have for every trailside repair kit.” Favorite local ride: “The Lookout Mountain Trail in the Ochoco National Forest is one of our favorite rides in Central Oregon due to its variety of terrain and exceptional views. As BendTrails states, ‘The Lookout Mountain Trail could easily be one of the best sustained downhill trails in Central Oregon.’”

Pop-Punk Nostalgia

Bend’s Capture the Flag reunites for one show By Anne Pick



“For the most part, it’s just for fun because we all love playing music.”



and crazy and spontaneous.” The February show at the Astro Lounge was a hit and the guys couldn’t wait to play together again. Davis decided to bring an electric performance by Capture the Flag to life during the culmination of several big life events. Within the next week, Davis turns 30 and their buddy Colton gets married—which means Snyder will be in town to celebrate both events. Sticking in the vein of pop-punk nostalgia, entry to the show is $5 and two cans of food. Davis says the canned food drive and the $5 price tag reminds him of the group’s younger days. After each show they’d drop off 150 to 200 cans of food to a local shelter—something Davis is excited to bring back. Capture the Flag fans and lovers of pop-punk can come reminisce and rock out with the band Thursday,

but don’t expect a comeback, necessarily. Davis and Nance say these gigs have been for fun, but a full return for the band—and the creation of new material—isn’t on the agenda yet. “For the most part, it’s just for fun because we all love playing music,” Davis says. “We had a long break to shake off anything and do our own things for a while. That’s the reason you start playing music to begin with.” SW Capture the Flag

Bend’s former purveyors of pop-punk, Capture the Flag, get back together for one night only at the Domino Room 5/10.

“We were touring a lot and we were all living in a warehouse together,” Davis recalls. “We’d bought a bus and a trailer to tour in and it was a rock ‘n’ roll circus. It was really good for a while—we had a real manager and were touring non-stop; we’d just put out a new album. I just think the substance abuse got out of hand. It was really cliché in what was happening, each thing snowballed until it was too much. The bus was disgusting.” Davis, now owner and talent buyer for Red Light Productions, plans concerts for a living. When he found out Snyder would be returning to Bend from his home in Austin, Texas, Davis decided to throw together an all-acoustic reunion show in February. “At least for me, with the band, it never worked subbing in a person,” Davis says. “It’s the chemistry of the band and that’s why you want to do it. It was super fun

ou may have varying opinions on the pop-punk genre, but Bend’s Capture the Flag loves everything about it—the catchy hooks, the lyrics, the overall sound. “The first pop punk album I heard was ‘Dookie’ by Green Day,” Capture the Flag’s Johnny Davis says. “I’d play in this metal band, but would be listening to poppunk. I loved Dashboard Confessional, I knew how to play all the songs. I felt like I was playing heavy music because I liked the energy of it and the technicality, but my heart was always in pop punk and emo music.” The band started in Bend in the late 2000s, though Davis and bandmates Zach Nance and Mikee Snyder have known each other since 7th grade. Capture the Flag made a name for themselves, playing more than 250 shows in 39 states on eight DIY tours before breaking up. “It was madness at the end,” Nance says. “There was a loss of trust.”



Band Moms


For Mother’s Day, a shout-out to moms in music


By Anne Pick



his week, in honor of Mother’s Day, we recognize some of the hardworking moms in the music industry. These ladies manage to juggle a career in the chaotic music industry with raising small children—often with interesting names. Gwen Stefani Mom to Kingston James McGregor, Zuma Nesta Rock and Apollo Bowie Flynn Stefani juggles a career in music, fashion and television with being a mom to three young boys. No Doubt fans may remember songs from the “Return of Saturn” era, with Stefani reflecting on wanting to be a mother, including “Simple Kind of Life.” I always thought I’d be a mom Sometimes I wish for a mistake The longer that I wait, the more selfish that I get You seem like you’d be a good dad

Brandi Carlile Mom to Evangeline and Elijah Carlile may currently be my favorite mom in music. This week, Carlile posted a photo of herself and newborn daughter, Elijah, lying on a yoga mat together at the gym on Instagram. Carlile and her partner Catherine have made touring a family affair, using the hashtag #travelingfamilyband. In addition to their new addition, Carlile and Catherine are moms of Evangeline. If you’ve listened to Carlile’s new album, you’ve likely heard her ode to motherhood and Evangeline, “The Mother.” Welcome to the end of being alone inside your mind You’re tethered to another and you’re worried all the time You always know the melody but you never heard it rhyme She’s fair and she is quiet, Lord, she doesn’t look like me She made me love the morning, she’s a holiday at sea The New York streets are busy as they always used to be But I am the mother of Evangeline Brody Dalle Mother to Camille Harley Joan, Orrin Ryder and Wolf Dillon Reece The former Distillers frontwoman hasn’t had the most glamorous path to motherhood, living a very rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle until the birth of her children. Even after her children were born, husband Josh Homme, of Queens of the Stone Age, went on tour for two years in order to bring home the bacon, so to speak. When she went in to record for her next band, Spinnerette, she struggled being away from her daughter, a toddler at the time. Times have changed, and now a mother of three, Dalle enjoys playing again and finds balance as both a mother and a punk rock shredder. Linda Pick Mother to Anne Marie, Emily Catherine and Lucy Lorraine Odds are you haven’t heard of Linda Pick, and technically, she’s not a musician or a band mom. But in honor of Mother’s Day, how could I not also recognize my own mom. My mom always encouraged my love of music, though maybe she didn’t necessarily love how much I spent on concert tickets over the years...  SW

We have been extremely fortunate to receive overwhelming support from our volunteers, partners and donors and have been able to connect hundreds of thousands of visitors to their National Forests through conservation education and visitor services. Thousands of kids and adults have been impacted by Discover Your Forest programs this year. Programs like Geology Field Trips, Fire Ecology Curriculum, Project SNOW and our award winning Citizen Science Pika study would not have been possible without the support of our partners at Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests and so many other great organizations. Growing support for our most vital education programs is what allows us to pursue the key element of our mission, creating the next generation of environmental stewards. This year, National Forest volunteers donated a record setting number of hours to conserving our region’s most special places. Whether they worked as interpretive rangers, on trail crews or as volunteer archaeologists, our volunteers and their passion for our forests made a tremendous impact. We are so thankful for the support of these amazing individuals!

Stars Over Newberry

Central Oregon’s National Forests are home to a group of wonderful volunteers men and women of all ages with a passionate interest in conservation, education and the rich environmental, cultural and geological history surrounding Central Oregon’s public lands. Discover Your Forest helps to recruit, train and support these amazing individuals who help the Forest Service to protect our region’s most treasured places. Volunteers are the very heart of the Forest Service. Volunteers maintain trails, serve as Interpretive Rangers and Wilderness Trailhead Stewards, they serve as hosts at campgrounds, teach their communities about conservation education, and perform important administrative needs as well as many other valuable services. If you would like to learn more about how to become a Volunteer and experience the wonders of Newberry National Volcanic Monument, visit volunteer or call Discover Your Forest at 541-383-5530.

The event takes place atop Lava Butte in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument and features stargazing through telescopes, live music, a silent auction, fabulous local beer, wine and cuisine. The festivities will coincide with the height of the Perseid Meteor Showers, giving visitors an unparalleled vista of the night sky. Supporting Stars Over Newberry is your chance to help us serve over 5,000 students per year on free field trips to the Monument. 2017’s event raised over $25,000 for Discover Your Forest, this year we hope to raise $30,000 to continue our work creating the environmental stewards of tomorrow.

“I am so thankful to have Discover Your Forest in my life. I’ve long known I wanted a life in Forestry and Conservation…to help improve education programs that show how and why people living with disability and mobility issues don’t need to be afraid to explore what our National Forests have to offer.”

“A wonderful day and wonderful guides and volunteers! Our students were truly happy and excited to be outside exploring. Everyone was amazing and very well organized. We look forward to another great trip next year!”

“Volunteering on the Forest is an opportunity to stay physically active, to meet people, and teach people the importance of the outdoors and Leave-No-Trace principles. Volunteers are essential. Without them, the trail system wouldn’t work.“

“Our mission is to empower women through bike skills, and bike skills are life skills.” — Jane Quinn

Jane Quinn of Dirt Divas wants to teach women that mountain biking is for everyone—not to mention being super fun By Caitlin Richmond


hen the Dirt Divas women’s mountain biking group started its season in April, over 100 women showed for the first all-ladies group ride of 2018. Jane Quinn, who’s been the program director for the past six years, couldn’t be there to ride, but was cheering them on from a distance, doing everything she could to make sure the 2018 season was a successful one. “There’s not usually that many people,” Quinn explained, “but it was the first one since winter ended and people are excited to get back on the trails.” If the idea of 100 women mountain biking together seems a little overwhelming, don’t worry. Group rides usually include more like 45 or 50 women, spread out over five ability levels. Each group is color coded; green if you’ve never mountain biked before, yellow if you’re a beginner, blue for intermediate riders, red for ladies who like to go fast on advanced trails and orange for advanced riders who like technically challenging trails. Quinn moved to Helena, Mont., last September, so she’s been coordinating the Dirt Divas program long distance, as

well as continuing her job as apparel buyer at Pine Mountain Sports. Her presence is still heavily felt throughout the program. “I still feel pretty involved—all the planning is pretty hands-on,” she said. “But I do miss being there and being able to participate in the actual rides and clinics.” Whether you’ve never mountain biked before or you’re an expert mountain biker looking for more riding partners, Dirt Divas has you covered, Quinn said. The free twice monthly rides, held on the second and fourth Mondays, are all no-drop—meaning no rider is left behind—and each group is led by a trained ambassador. After learning how to mountain bike exclusively with men, Quinn wanted mountain biking to be more appealing to women—especially women just getting into the sport. “I worked at a bike shop where I was the only female and I would go riding with my co-workers, but no one taught me about progression, so I would get in over my head and try things I wasn’t ready for,” she described. “I’ve heard

ARTWATCH Moms Love Art Remember when you were a kid and for Mother’s Day you’d make a Georgia O’Keefe-inspired flower painting? Or maybe you’d cover your hands in paint, smack ‘em down on a piece of paper with a poem, give it to mom and call it good? Mom loved that. She loved your art. Your mom still loves art, but now you’re both a little older and giving her art for Mother’s Day could be a really inspired idea. Moms love art. If you’re out of ideas, check these out.

similar stories from other women who go out riding with their husbands or boyfriends, and I’ve dealt with the same thing with my husband. He will be like ‘just pop over it!’, which isn’t actually helpful.” The point of Dirt Divas is not to discourage women from riding with men. Instead, it’s there to give women a low-pressure place to try new things and improve their skills with people who have similar builds and who may approach things from a similar perspective, Quinn explained. The encouraging but low-pressure encouragement from the group oftentimes creates a place where women are willing to try things they might not otherwise feel up for. Quinn has often seen that self-confidence in riders continue outside of Dirt Divas. “Our mission is to empower women through bike skills, and bike skills are life skills,” she explained. “We see big changes on the bike, like moving from the beginner group to the intermediate group, but we also see women take the

self-confidence they’ve gained into other parts of their lives.” In addition to the trail rides, Dirt Divas holds a variety of clinics throughout the season to teach skills such as bike maintenance, suspension setup and kit outfitting, as well as skill-specific clinics. Quinn works with a variety of sponsors, including Osprey, Smith Optic, Camelbak, Trek, Dakine and Club Ride to outfit the ambassadors and to provide prizes and swag for clinics and rides. All rides meet at Pine Mountain Sports. Riders just need to bring a helmet, hydration, a driver’s license and a credit card. If riders don’t have a bike, they can borrow one from Pine Mountain Sports at no cost. SW

Do you know all the hidden mural locations of Bend? There are quite a few, and John Flannery will show you all of them. He’ll also give you the history of the art in our roundabouts and show off some local artists’ yard art. You can go by Segway, electric bike or open air electric car. You’ll learn something new, and Flannery is hilarious. Bend Tour Company

Small prints

It can often be hard to buy people art, because you’re worried they may not have a place to put it. What if they don’t like it? Small art is great for

this purpose. It can go in a hallway, on a wall between door frames, in a bathroom or even on a staircase wall. Most people have small spaces in their home they’d like filled. If you know your mom likes gardens, get a piece with some flowers. If she loves motorcycles, maybe something a little edgier. Most artists make small sized work—usually very affordable and easy to give as a gift. It doesn’t need to be a Picasso for it to be appreciated and loved, the way all art should be. Just make sure you get a frame! Never give someone a gift of art without it being framed. Your mother raised you better than that. Available at The Workhouse, Willow Lane and Red Chair Gallery. SW

Bike Skills are Life Skills





Stormy of the Century Hurricane Daniels heads to Bend By Jared Rasic

“It’s a chance to see someone who could possibly influence history.” —RANDY KAISER ignoring Trump, sex and money all together. Randy Kaiser, co-owner of Stars, doesn’t see Daniels’ upcoming Bend appearance as a political show. “I would remind people that she was here around

10 years ago, so she’s been to Bend before. It just so happens this time her circumstances are much more public,” he says. Because she’s not just Stormy Daniels, I thought. She was born Stephanie A. Gregory in Baton Rouge, La., in 1979. Raised by her mother, she grew up wanting to be a journalist. By 17, she was set up to be a stripper and chose her name through a perfect bit of cultural synergy: Her love of Motley Crue led her to name herself after Nikki Sixx’s daughter, Storm, choosing “Daniels” after seeing an ad describing Jack Daniels as a “Southern favorite.” Daniels entered the porn world in 2002, doing only lesbian scenes, but by 2004 was a contract girl with the massive porn company, Wicked, and won Best New Starlet in the Adult Video News awards (The porn Oscars) two years later. In 2009, she formed an exploratory committee to run against Republican Senator David Vitter in Louisiana after discovering that the Republican National Committee had raised money through a “lesbian bondage-themed nightclub.” Thinking that made her somewhat libertarian views more simpatico with the GOP, she ditched her lifelong attachment to the Democrats and registered Republican. By mid-April of 2010 she decided not to run, blaming a lack of funds and the media never giving her run the seriousness it deserved. I mean, in those last two paragraphs alone I can’t imagine all the stories she could tell about her life that don’t involve $130,000 in hush money or unsigned non-disclosure agreements. I

or the space of about two hours, I thought I might get an interview with Stormy Daniels. She’s coming to Bend in order to spend an evening dancing at Stars Cabaret, so this was definitely a local interest piece. Having received alleged hush money from associates of #45 following an alleged affair, she’s occupying a social position similar to what Monica Lewinsky held during a different presidency. Still, I felt weird asking Daniels questions entirely based around her sexual proclivities. I figured I’d be just another tabloid asshole if I asked her a bunch of questions about our current commander-in-chief’s private parts. Before I got an email from her agent telling me, “With respect to the media, Stormy has declined any and all press interviews other than her previous appearances on 60 Minutes and The View,” I really thought I might get a chance to ask her a few questions. I briefly thought about being a contrarian and just asking her about her favorite book or least favorite ’90’s slow jam,

Ladies and gentlemen, Ms. Stormy Daniels.

know she likes horses and has won several equestrian events, but people want the sex; they want the juicy details that can titillate them as they clutch their pearls. About what to expect from Daniels’ appearance in Bend, Kaiser says, “It’s a chance to see someone who could possibly influence history. Regardless of what side of the aisle you’re on when it comes to Trump, the fact of the matter is that she could change history.”  SW

Deschutes Brewery’s Year of Collabs By Kevin Gifford


nything in Bend that’s been around long enough to celebrate its 30th anniversary is unusual, really. When that something is the city’s best-known brewery, it calls for a celebration. This summer marks 30 years since Gary Fish set up Deschutes Brewery downtown on Bond Street, back when Bond Street was a much emptier place. Deschutes has since grown to become one of the United States’ representative craft breweries, distributing from coast to coast and making Bend synonymous with beer in the minds of many. Of course, Fish didn’t create Deschutes all by himself. Hundreds of people were involved, and for the big birthday, the brewery is working with some of them again on new beers. Seven collaborations are in the works for 2018, each made with the help of a brewer who used to work for Deschutes. One of them, Frank Appleton, joined Fish as a brewing consultant in 1988 and helped craft the original recipes for Black Butte Porter and Jubelale. “My first feeling about Bend was how small and remote it was,” Appleton recalls. “I wondered ‘Where are they going to sell all this beer in this little Budweiser town?’ Well, Gary and the team sure showed me! Bend was only the beginning!” Appleton and Robin Johnson, assistant brewmaster at Bond Street, are teaming up to release Black Pearl, a smooth milk stout available around Oregon late next month. Of the other six, one’s out already: Fresh Chair, a refreshing Northwest-style pale ale made with the help of former Deschutes brewmaster, Larry Sidor, who co-founded Crux Fermentation project in 2012.

The other collaborationists: - Tony Lawrence, who had a stint brewing at Deschutes before founding Boneyard Beer, helped make a hoppy Vienna-style lager for the Bond Street pub. It’s out in June. - John Harris, Deschutes’ very first brewer in 1988, now leads things over at Portland’s Ecliptic Brewing. For the 30th, he’s contributing to Oh Be Joyful, an easy-drinking summer pale ale. It will be out in June (look for it in six-packs, too). - Tim Gossack was head brewer at Deschutes during its rapid expansion in the early ‘90s; he’s now the lead production brewer at Bell’s Brewery, a similarly large craft outfit in Michigan. He’s making a Schwarzbier for this project, combining the chocolate/coffee flavor of a porter with the lightness of a lager. It will be out for nationwide release this fall. - Ex-assistant brewmaster, Paul Arney, runs The Ale Apothecary, Bend’s most creative brewery, and his collaboration reflects his approach to making beer. It’ll combine his beer with Deschutes’ cider, made with locally sourced apples and aged in oak with Arney’s trademark wild fermentation. That will be out later this year. - Mark Vickery, Deschutes’ second brewer, is helping craft a golden ale aged in white wine barrels that’ll be bottle condition and clock in at 10 percent. Expect that out later this year.  SW

Celebrating its 30th anniversary in style







Mom SCREEN Queen “Tully” is a surprising gem By Jared Rasic 37


“Theron is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, yet her performance here is completely without vanity.” Enter Tully, a night nanny recommended by Marlo’s bougie brother, Craig (the always welcome Mark Duplass). To the character of Tully, Mackenzie Davis brings a warmth and effortless ease. She’s a hot Mary Poppins combined with a lightly punk Tinkerbell. From 10:30 pm to 6:30 am, Tully doesn’t just take care of the newborn, but has life lessons for Marlo as well. The story could have been a recipe for cheeseball schmaltz, but with a script from Diablo Cody of “Juno” and direction from Jason Reitman of “Young Adult,” “Tully” is a much darker and incisive story than anticipated. There are no big moments romanticizing parenthood or lionizing Marlo as a wife and mother.

VOLUME 22  ISSUE 19  /  May 10, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

e take Charlize Theron for granted. I mean, sure, she’s been nominated for awards and is definitely on the Hollywood A-list, but her versatility should put her among greats including Daniel Day-Lewis, Meryl Streep and Joaquin Phoenix. If the U.S. had a queen, Theron could pencil in some time for crown fittings. Start by looking at her work in “Monster,” in which she played the hideously human serial killer Aileen Wuornos, and in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” in which she instantly redefined the role of women in action movies. She reinvents herself once more in “Tully,” gaining 50 pounds to play Marlo, a mother of three. She’s almost unrecognizable. Marlo is married to Drew (Ron “Office Space” Livingston), who works ungodly hours to support his family, but tends to check out with his Xbox when he gets home. With a son who’s starting to manifest behavioral issues, a daughter struggling with her own self-image and a new baby screaming through all hours of the night, Marlo is exhausted in a primal way only mothers can really understand.

I’m pretty sure that’s what exhaustion looks like.

Instead, the film balances big laughs with a melancholy air of dreams deferred. As great as Cody and Reitman are, Theron and Davis make “Tully” a truly unforgettable film. Theron is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, yet her performance here is completely without vanity. With her Rubenesque curves and shapeless clothes, Theron inhabits every square inch of Margot, from her exhausted stare to her bitter tongue. Davis was excellent in AMC’s “Halt and Catch Fire,” and in “Blade Runner 2049,” but “Tully” should push her into an entirely different realm as an actor. It’s a star-making performance in a movie that probably won’t get as many viewers as it deserves. She’s starring in the upcoming “Terminator” reboot, so hopefully

she’ll cross over sooner than later. I have no real criticisms of “Tully,” aside from an abrasive third act that at first seems out of place but then becomes the thesis for the entire film. The trailers don’t do the movie justice or really let the audience know what they’re in for—but you should let this remarkable little movie surprise you as an unexpected delight. SW

A WRINKLE IN TIME: Based on the beloved

children’s book by Madeleine L’Engle, this adaptation takes the important thematic and story points and leaves the rest. At turns lovely and gentle, and while not a perfect movie, it does enough right to feel like a genuinely humanist motion picture. Without a drop of cynicism, “A Wrinkle in Time” makes a bit of magic. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

ANNIHILATION: Easily the weirdest and most surreal theatrical film since Cronenberg was experimenting with body horror. Five women cross a boundary into an area slowly changing into something otherworldly and dangerous. The imagery in this film will stay with you. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR: It’s been 10

years and 18 movies, but we’ve finally made it to the grand finale of the first chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While there are still plenty of laughs and a ton of fun to be had, expect a much darker superhero movie than Marvel normally releases. Easily one of the most epic movies ever made. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

BAD SAMARITAN: While the trailers make

this look like a neutered remake of “Don’t Breathe,” David Tennant as a serial killer and the underrated Robert Sheehan (“Misfits”) as the reluctant hero are interesting actors always worth watching. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

BLOCKERS: From the director of “Pitch Per-

fect” comes a comedy about two sets of parents desperate to keep their kids from losing their virginity on prom night. With a great cast including Ike Barinholtz, Leslie Mann and John Cena, the laughs should come. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

BORG VS. MCENROE: Shia LaBeouf playing John McEnroe is brilliant casting. Watching the infamously unhinged actor play the famously unhinged tennis star should be enough to get butts in the theater for the dramatic reenactment of the 1980 Wimbledon Championships. Tin Pan Theater THE DEATH OF STALIN: A jaw-droop-

& IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema.

I FEEL PRETTY: After the train wreck that

was last year’s “Snatched,” hopefully this body-positive comedy can get Amy Schumer back on track. She’ll have to expand from her normal schtick (clueless and egotistical) to stay relevant and funny, so we’ll see if she can pull that off with “I Feel Pretty.” Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

ISLE OF DOGS: Wes Anderson has crafted another meticulously designed dramedy, but this time he goes back to the medium of stop-motion animation. The film is beautiful to look at and filled with a raw and beautiful soul that most movies struggle to achieve with real actors. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX LEAN ON PETE: The new film from the mas-

ter of brooding silences, Andrew Haigh, follows a teenage boy and his friendship with a downon-its-luck racehorse. There’s not a moment of cheesiness in this powerful and unforgettable masterpiece. One of the best films of the year. Sisters Movie House

OVERBOARD: A gender-reversed remake of the Kurt Russell/Goldie Hawn vehicle from 1987 sounds like a good time, especially with the always charming Anna Faris playing the mistreated employee of a spoiled yacht owner. Sometimes a lightweight comedy is exactly what the doctor ordered. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema RAMPAGE: If there’s more you need from a

movie than The Rock fighting a giant gorilla, an evil crocodile and a flying wolf, then this might not be the movie you’re looking for. It’s delightfully entertaining in all the right ways and proves the Rock can carry any premise with his eyebrows alone. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

READY PLAYER ONE: If a 140-minute-long movie about video games and cinema is your thing, then “Ready Player One” might be your Holy Grail of film. With Steven Spielberg in the director’s chair, even the moments that don’t quite work make for a visually stunning experience. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

ingly hilarious comedy from the creative team behind HBO’s “Veep.” The film follows the power struggle after Stalin’s death between Krushchev, Malenkov, and Beria and contains several of the funniest scenes of the year. Worth watching just for seeing Steve Buscemi channel his inner sociopath. Tin Pan Theater.

SUPER TROOPERS 2: What amounts to 90 minutes of Canadian jokes means “Super Troopers 2” lives up to the law of diminishing returns. Barely any laughs. This movie is a huge waste of time. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

GAME NIGHT: With a cast featuring Jason

TULLY: Another glorious dramedy from screen-

Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler, Lamorne Morris and Jesse Plemons, it’s really hard to go wrong. Luckily, “Game Night” works as a hilarious comedy and a mystery/thriller in equal measures, making for one of the most entertaining movies of the year. Old Mill Stadium 16

writer Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman, the team who brought us “Juno” and “Young Adult.” Charlize Theron plays an exhausted mother who is gifted a “night nanny” from her rich brother. A truly wonderful minor miracle of a movie. See full review on p 37. Old Mill Stadium

Some of Some of cinema’s most complicated moms.


know lots of people have complicated relationships with their mothers, but mine has always been pretty laid back. The first time I was pulled over by a cop, she randomly drove by, hopping out of her car like it was on fire and getting all up in the cop’s face. Priceless. Regardless of your relationship with your mom, here are a few movies that show how complicated the love between a mother and her brood sometimes can be. Psycho (1960) I watch “Psycho” most Mother’s Days because it’s the ultimate love letter from a son to his mother. Poor old Norman Bates just didn’t know how to stop taking care of his mother dearest, so he continued on long after her demise (Sorry for the 60-YEAR-OLD SPOILER). I mean, some people take from the film that Norman is crazy and kind of a serial killer, but I think he was just a little confused. And don’t we all go a little mad sometimes? 20th Century Women (2016) A sadly overlooked modern classic starring Annette Bening and Greta Gerwig, the film focuses on surrounding a 15-year-old boy with mothers, both figurative and literal. As the boy’s mother, Bening has no boundaries with her brutal honesty and overwhelming ability to smother. Gerwig is a boarder in their house who teaches him how to find himself amid all the noise and Elle Fanning teaches him how to fall in love. As a grown man, he tries to describe his mother to his children and finds it impossible.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) If I ever get murdered, I hope my mom will go on a violent rampage as she seeks justice, just like Frances McDormand does in her Oscar-winning performance. She firebombs police stations, kicks pre-teens in the crotch and turns an entire town against her as she hunts the killer of her teenage daughter. This is probably the best movie ever made about a true mama lion out to tear apart some jackals, reminding me moms can be the scariest thing ever. The Babadook (2014) It’s one thing to protect your kid from the evil that men do, but it’s another thing entirely to fight a monster that feeds off fear and despair. Essie Davis plays one of the greatest cinematic moms in history as she protects her sixyear-old son from a creature straight out of a pop-up storybook. Even when the master is at its scariest and most evil, Davis is such a badass that it’s hard not to wish she was watching over all of us every night. Lady Bird (2017) I know it’s a new one, but “Lady Bird” should be required viewing on Mother’s Day. In fact, they should change the name to “Lady Bird Day.” There are not too many movies that feel so personal yet so universal, covering how a teenager getting ready to head out for college deals with her mother before saying goodbye. There’s anger, bitterness, naiveté and most of all a love impossible to turn your back on. It’s a beautiful story about how we all connect to our moms, for better or worse. SW

Sculpted to the Wave

A Bend local is making boards specifically for the waves at Bend’s Whitewater Park

Top: Conway Bixby, Chris Caldentey and Kea Eubank hug their handcrafted river surfboards. Bottom: Conway Bixby styles the Green Wave on a custom board shaped by his own hand.

Bixby declares, “It out-turns, outruns, and just plain outperforms any other board on the river. I have put everything that I have learned over the past 14-plus years of river surfing and shaping into this board and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.” Miranda Campbell, also of Bee Line Hemp Wick (and a wicked boogie boarder in her own right) notes the connection between Bixby’s family logging history and the Whitewater Park location. “The coolest thing about Bixby is that for I don’t know how many generations, his family has been loggers, and that is why he named one of his boards Hot Saw and his logo is a chainsaw, too. And now, full circle, he is making eco-friendly boards to surf in the Old Mill!” Bixby also custom tailors his designs to a surfer’s anatomical needs. Chris Caldentey, computed tomography technologist by day, said his quiver included the Hot Saw and a custom Bixby board. “After work, I love to wash

the day off and get some turns in… Bixby’s boards have helped my surfing so much. The equipment is like surf equipment, but it’s different. It’s nice to have somebody who knows the ins and outs of how the river works making our boards… He’s also just a great guy. He’d give you the shirt off his back.” Or neoprene off his back? Under the radar for now, you won’t find Bixby through a website. You will, however, find him at the Green Wave, surfing his boards, crew in tow. “This part of the game is all new to me,” Bixby claims in reference to being interviewed. Maybe in five more generations, when river boards are all built eco-friendly by default and newborns learn to river surf right out of the womb, poaching secret standing waves, The Bee Keeper and The Hot Saw will all be part of some epic bedtime stories.   Besides finding them at the Bend Whitewater Park, look for Bixby surfboards on Instagram and Facebook.  SW

ocal river surfers could find any old surfboard at a number of commercial retailers—or, they could get a river board created to the specifications of Bend Whitewater Park’s beloved Green Wave (second wave down river, looking from the footbridge). Fifth generation Oregonian, Conway Bixby, hasn’t been content riding waves on mass manufactured boards, ever. Rewind to pre-2015, when, although reports are murky, it’s rumored a select few river surfers poached secret standing waves in the Bend/Central Oregon corridor (for decades). It was during that top secret era that Bixby Boards began gestating. Today, Bixby makes four models of river boards. In order of inception, boards include The Gutter Punk, The Whistleblower, The Bee Keeper and The Hot Saw. All the boards tend to be short, in the five-0 (5 foot) range, something Bixby says is necessary for a tongue-and-groove fit in the trough of the Green Wave. The Whistleblower (beginner to advanced) is the first board Bixby shaped specifically for the Green Wave. With a round nose, thumb tail and single concave bottom that splits into a double concave through the fins, the board is fast. The Bee Keeper (intermediate to advanced) is a collaboration piece with river surfer Kea Eubank—“Bee Keeper” being a play on words in homage to Eubank’s business, Bee Line Hemp Wick. The board features a swallow tail and more traditional shortboard nose and rocker. “This board is screaming fast and with the wide swallow tail, the board drives through turns like an Indy car, and under the feet of an advanced surfer it spins like a top,” explains Bixby. About the Bee Keeper, Eubank says, “I’ve been riding Bixby boards for eight years or so and they are always an experiment, continually changing and evolving. With the Bee Keeper, we finally locked down a high-performance board specific to [the Green] Wave.” Bixby credits Eubank for the tail design, including a removable fin which makes the board optimal for tricks. In addition, with Eubank’s industry connections, the Bee Keeper is wrapped in hemp as opposed to fiberglass. This, combined with the fact that Bixby’s boards are created in part from salvaged insulation castoffs, means the Bee Keeper is made with 80 percent eco-friendly materials and practices. The Hot Saw (intermediate to advanced) is the newest board in the lineup. At 4 feet 8 inches, this is the no-apologies, all-around high performance shortboard for the Green Wave.

Hjelp humlene med bolplass! Or how to help native pollinators in Central Oregon By Jim Anderson for I.D. Rich kindly informed me that Sue’s photo was of a carpenter bee, not a bumblebee. I’ve come to realize how vital native bees are to the health and welfare of all our natural ecosystems and human welfare. So much so, that I’ve given up my lifelong love affair with the European honeybee. My wonderful old great uncle, Moulton Alexander Rockefeller, introduced me to them when I was a teenager and I collected a swarm for him from the family farm’s orchard. No one loves on-demand honey more than I do, but I’ve come to realize that my sweet European bees were/are competing unfavorably with the native pollinators—especially bumblebees—so I’ve given up beekeeping in favor of protecting native bees. Which takes us to the title of this story, “Hjelp humlene med bolplass.” That’s Norwegian for, “Help the hops with pitcher.” It was contained in the response I received from Hatfield that set me straight on who-is-whom. After over 90 years of wandering around on this great old Planet Earth you’d think I’d know my bees. Rich set me straight. Carpenter bees are in the genus Xylocopa, and I was relieved to learn I’m not the first one to confuse them with bumblebees. There are some 500 species of carpenter bees in 31 subgenera found throughout the world, and most of them look very much alike. The common name, “carpenter bee,” derives from their nesting behavior, as they burrow into hard plant material such as deadwood or bamboo. My hunch is the Great Sandy Desert variety nests in dead sagebrush and juniper.

Sue Anderson

The Great Sandy Desert carpenter bee.

However, carpenter bees—wonderful pollinators—do not enjoy the complex social structure of European honeybees and other hive bees. Instead, they live as you and I do, in pairs. The female carpenter bee bores a nesting hole in the old wooden substrate and guards her young while the male patrols the area. The males are fiercely territorial, dive-bombing and attempting to drive away anyone or anything that approaches the nest. However, the males are all buzz and no bite/sting. They may be able to scare the daylights out of you, but it’s only the female carpenter bees that are capable of following up on it, stinging the intruder. If you’re as pig-headed as I am and want to get to know carpenter bees, you will get stung. I guarantee it! I’ve had the honor. Unlike the honeybee female, which has a barbed stinger and can only sting once, the carpenter bee has a smooth

stinger and can, like a wasp, give it to you again and again. The typical sharp pain follows for a few minutes, a dull ache after that, and the site can/will remain sensitive to the touch and also itch for a few days. Now, with all that said, carpenter bee stings are not dangerous for most people, and applying cold packs on and off to the site—with one or two layers of cloth in between—will take away most of the fire. BUT if you’re allergic to the venom of bees, seek medical treatment immediately, and/or use the venom kit you should have with you at all times! If you’d like to have these vital pollinators as guests in your backyard to help keep your garden healthy, send me an email: and I’ll send you plans for a Norwegian artificial carpenter bee nest. If you’re from the old country and still speak the lingo: IHvis du er fra det gamle landet, sender jeg det til deg på ditt eget språk.  SW

never know what my wife and I will come home with when we go out on our seasonal look-see at the 150+ golden eagle breeding sites we’re responsible for watching over. Sometimes we’ll come home with only one American badger sighting for the day, or none, which is very sad. Other times we’ll witness a herd of 100 or so Rocky Mountain elk come thundering across the road in front of us out on the Great Sandy Desert, and that perks us up. Burrowing owls are always a delight to meet up with, especially when the one on guard is perched on a Bureau of Land Management road sign. A big thrill is when the whole family—mom, dad and six owlets—are standing in front of their burrow, scolding us, with the kids looking at us with their heads upside down. Black-tailed jackrabbits and desert cottontails are always fun to watch as they do their best to convince us they’re merely a figment of our imaginations. But then a Ferruginous hawk comes swooping down and ruins that plan. My wife, Sue, is into butterflies, so when we come upon a milkweed patch we didn’t know about, and it’s breeding Monarchs that we didn’t know of, eagles are almost forgotten as we whip out the GPS and spend a good hour crawling around looking for, counting and photographing caterpillars and adults. But last summer, we came home with a beautiful sighting of a new-forus insect. I first called it a bumblebee; that is, prior to contacting Rich Hatfield of the Xerces Society. He’s the bumblebee expert at the society’s headquarters in Portland, and I often send him photos

Sprucing Up Your Home to Sell It, Without Losing Your Mind



you’ll need to pack stuff for moving anyway, now’s a good time to declutter and pack away your extra things including clothing, linens, dishes, etc. Neat and uncluttered spaces look nicer and give the impression of plenty of storage space. This is a good time to consider renting a storage unit for your excess items and pre-packed items. Don’t forget to do the same for your garage. 3. Depersonalize and Neutralize. Because the goal is to have buyers see themselves living in a space, personal items such as family photos and taxidermy should be packed up. Other personalized features such as boldly painted walls should probably be painted to neutral tones. Remember to patch and paint where photos and artwork have been removed and touch up any dings or scratches in the wall while you’re at it. 4. Clean Thoroughly. Sparkling clean windows inside and out, wiped countertops, kitchen cupboards, and a clean oven and stove, floors, and bathrooms go a long way. A clean home can feel like a new home and usually smells nice, too. 5. Hide Valuables and Medications. Pack up valuables such as jewelry and coins or keep them in a safe, if you have one. For the ones you keep, make sure they’re out of sight. This also applies to medications.

etting ready to sell your house? Spring and summer are typically higher-volume home sale times, and even though our area is very much a seller’s market, there’s a lot more involved than putting up a “For Sale” sign. Just like you might wash, wax and detail your car before selling it, similar principles apply to preparing your home. The work is quite simple but requires some time well worth spending. Here are the basic items on most checklists. 1. Curb appeal. The outside of your home is the first thing people see and provides the first impression. Prospective buyers may decide not to go inside a home if the outside doesn’t appeal to them, just as they may be attracted by an exterior that appeals to them. This is basically simple stuff like hosing down the outside of your home, cleaning the gutters, cleaning the windows, maintaining your landscape. Don’t forget planting some colorful flowers or hanging baskets. Your front door should be clean and should be painted if needed. 2. Declutter. You may have heard the stager’s quote, “Less is more.“ Many of us tend to have too much stuff lying around on counter tops, in closets and cupboards, in the garage, on coffee and dining tables, etc. It is not uncommon to hear that 50 percent or more of our stuff is never used.

I was roommates with a girl five years ago. I was a spoiled brat for many years, but I’ve worked very hard to change. She, on the other hand, is still supported by her father, has no job or interests, and just wants to get married. Whenever she calls, she wants advice on the same boy drama. I just don’t have the time or patience for this anymore. I tried not responding to her, but she keeps calling and texting, “I need to come over right now!” ­—Drama-Weary “I need to come over right now!” What are you, a day spa for her emotions crossed with the Burger King drive-thru? It’s easy to confuse the chunk of time a friend has been in your life with reason for them to continue being there. It helps to unpack the mystique about how friendships form. Social science research finds that a major driver of friendship is similarity—shared values and attitudes, for example. But demographic similarity is part of it, too—like both being 30-year-old single female zoo workers who went to a crappy college. And though we want to believe we carefully choose the friends in our lives, personality psychologist Mitja Back and his colleagues are among the researchers who’ve found that “mere proximity” seems to play a big role in who our friends are. This means, for example, living in the apartment next door, working in the same department, or, in Back’s study, being randomly assigned to “neighboring seats” in a college class. In other words, you probably became friends with this woman because she was sleeping in the next room, not because you conducted a nationwide search for the best possible buddy for you. Now’s the time to choose whether she stays in your life—and you don’t do that by hoping she’ll hear your vigorous eye-rolling over the phone and take the hint. Breaking up with a friend—if that’s what you want to do—should work like breaking up with a romantic partner. Don’t just wordlessly cut off contact; that’s cruel -- and likely to backfire. Tell her that you need to end the friendship, explaining the problem in broad terms: You’ve “grown apart” or you’re “in different places” in your lives. Even if she presses you, keep it kind by keeping it vague. The point is telling her it’s over, not informing her that she’s got all the emotional depth of a goldfish and then ducking out forever via call

waiting: “Sorry—gotta go. Important robocall from Rachel from Card Services on the other line!”

To The Bitter Friend After six years of hard work, I’m starting to have some success in my career. Disturbingly, my best friend seems envious. I’ll tell her some exciting news, and she’ll barely respond. I understand that she’s trying to break through while working a menial job, but my other friends are really supportive and happy for me. She claims she is, too, but her behavior says otherwise. It really hurts my feelings. Amy Alkon ­—Disappointed We often do crazy things simply to keep up with our peers who are doing those things—not, say, because we were bored on a Saturday afternoon and had a little brainstorm: “I know! I’ll pay some total stranger $55 to spread molten wax on my labia and rip out all my pubic hair!” We evolved to be creatures of “social comparison”—judging how well we’re doing personally and professionally by how we stack up to others. As I often explain, our emotions are not just for mental decoration; they’re motivational tools. When we’re lagging behind our peers, envy often rises up—as it seems to be in your friend. Envy is mistakenly assumed to be ugly and shameful, but evolutionary social psychologist Bram Buunk and his colleagues explain that the feelbad we get from envy pushes us to get on the stick and narrow the “status gap” between ourselves and others. Understanding the underpinnings of envy can help you have compassion for your friend, which might help you avoid taking it personally when she fails to celebrate your achievements by pulling out confetti and a kazoo. Try to accept that she probably can’t express the excitement you’d like her to because every success you rack up sneers, “Hey, loser! How come she’s up there and you’re down here?” If you do tell her about some win, consider pairing the news with mention of the years of grubby work and daily failures that went into it. This might help her view the success you’ve achieved as something attainable— as opposed to some magical gift: “OMG, I was just sitting on my porch drinking a beer, when my boss called and said, ‘You often cut work and smoke a lot of pot. Let’s give you the VP job.’”

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s possible you could pass for normal in the next three weeks; you might be able to fool a lot of people into thinking you’re an average, ordinary contributor to the dull routine. But it will be far healthier for your relationship with yourself if you don’t do such a thing. It will also be a gift to your less daring associates, who in my opinion would benefit from having to engage with your creative agitation and fertile chaos. So my advice is to reveal yourself as an imperfect workin-progress who’s experimenting with novel approaches to the game of life. Recognize your rough and raw features as potential building blocks for future achievements. CANCER (June 21July 22): “Paradise is scattered over the whole earth,” wrote the scientific poet Novalis, “and that is why it has become so unrecognizable.” Luckily for you, Cancerian, quite a few fragments of paradise are gathering in your vicinity. It’ll be like a big happy reunion of tiny miracles all coalescing to create a substantial dose of sublimity. Will you be ready to deal with this much radiance? Will you be receptive to so much relaxing freedom? I hope and pray you won’t make a cowardly retreat into the trendy cynicism that so many people mistake for intelligence. (Because in that case, paradise might remain invisible.) Here’s my judicious advice: Be insistent on pleasure! Be voracious for joy! Be focused on the quest for beautiful truths!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): These days, your friends and allies and loved ones want even more from you than they usually do. They crave more of your attention, more of your approval, more of your feedback. And that’s not all. Your friends and allies and loved ones also hope you will give more love to yourself. They will be excited and they will feel blessed if you express an even bigger, brighter version of your big, bright soul. They will draw inspiration from your efforts to push harder and stronger to fulfill your purpose here on Planet Earth. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): One of the advantages you get from reading my horoscopes is that I offer confidential information about the gods’ caprices and leanings. For example, I can tell you that Saturn -- also known as Father Time -- is now willing to allot you a more luxurious relationship with time than usual, on one condition: that you don’t squander the gift on trivial pursuits. So I encourage you to be discerning and disciplined about nourishing your soul’s craving for interesting freedom. If you demonstrate to Saturn how constructively you can use his blessing, he’ll be inclined to provide more dispensations in the future. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Vincent van Gogh’s painting *The Starry Night* hangs on a wall in New York’s Museum of Modern Art. He created it in 1889 while living in a French asylum. Around that same time, 129 years ago, a sheepherder in Wyoming created a sourdough starter that is still fresh today. A cook named Lucille Clarke Dumbrill regularly pulls this frothy mass of yeast out of her refrigerator and uses it to make pancakes. In the coming weeks, Libra, I’d love to see you be equally

resourceful in drawing on an old resource. The past will have offerings that could benefit your future.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Love everyone


twice as much and twice as purely as you ever have before. Your mental health requires it! Your future dreams demand it! And please especially intensify your love for people you allegedly already love but sometimes don’t treat as well as you could because you take them for granted. Keep this Bible verse in mind, as well: “Don’t neglect to show kindness to strangers; for, in this way, some, without knowing it, have had angels as their guests.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): After meditating on your astrological aspects for an hour, I dozed off. As I napped, I had a dream in which an androgynous angel came to me and said, “Please inform your Sagittarius readers that they should be callipygian in the next two weeks.” Taken aback, my dreaming self said to the angel, “You mean ‘callipygian’ as in ‘having beautiful buttocks’?” “Yes, sir,” the angel replied. “Bootylicious. Bumtastic. Rumpalicious.” I was puzzled. “You mean like in a metaphorical way?” I asked. “You mean Sagittarians should somehow cultivate the symbolic equivalent of having beautiful buttocks?” “Yes,” the angel said. “Sagittarians should be elegantly well-grounded. Flaunt their exquisite foundation. Get to the bottom of things with flair. Be sexy badasses as they focus on the basics.” “OK!” I said. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Now is a favorable time to discuss in elegant detail the semi-secret things that are rarely or never talked about. It’s also a perfect moment to bring deep feelings and brave tenderness into situations that have been suffering from half-truths and pretense. Be aggressively sensitive, my dear Capricorn. Take a bold stand in behalf of compassionate candor. And as you go about these holy tasks, be entertaining as well as profound. The cosmos has authorized you to be a winsome agent of change.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In his 1931 painting *The Persistence of Memory,* Salvador Dali shows three clocks that seem to be partially liquefied, as if in the process of melting. His biographer Meredith Etherington-Smith speculated that he was inspired to create this surrealistic scene when he saw a slab of warm Camembert cheese melting on a dinner table. I foresee the possibility of a comparable development in your life, Aquarius. Be alert for creative inspiration that strikes you in the midst of seemingly mundane circumstances. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “My whole life is messed up with people falling in love with me,” said Piscean poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. She spoke the truth. She inspired a lot of adoration, and it stirred up more chaos than she was capable of managing. Luckily, you will have fewer problems with the attention coming your way, Pisces. I bet you’ll be skilled at gathering the benefits and you’ll be unflummoxed by the pitfalls. But you’ll still have to work hard at these tasks. Here’s some help. Tip #1: Stay in close touch with how you really feel about the people who express their interest in you. Tip #2: Don’t accept gifts with strings attached. Tip #3: Just because you’re honored or flattered that someone finds you attractive doesn’t mean you should unquestioningly blend your energies with them. ARIES (March 21-April 19): The Torah is a primary sacred text of the Jewish religion. It consists of exactly 304,805 letters. When specially trained scribes make handwritten copies for ritual purposes, they must not make a single error in their transcription. The work may take as long as 18 months. Your attention to detail in the coming weeks doesn’t have to be quite so painstaking, Aries, but I hope you’ll make a strenuous effort to be as diligent as you can possibly be.

Homework: Do you allow your imagination to indulge in fantasies that are wasteful, damaging, or dumb? I dare you to stop it. Testify at

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Born under the sign of Taurus, Edmund Wilson was a renowned twentieth-century author and critic who wrote more than 30 books. He also served as editor for *Vanity Fair* and *The New Republic,* and influenced the work of at least seven major American novelists. When he was growing up, he spent most of his free time reading books: 16 hours a day during summer vacations. His parents, worried about his obsessive passion, bought him a baseball uniform, hoping to encourage him to diversify his interests. His response was to wear the uniform while reading books 16 hours a day. I trust you will be equally dedicated to your own holy cause or noble pursuit in the coming weeks, Taurus. You have cosmic clearance to be single-minded about doing what you love.

Lights Out on Cannabis Channels Next up in the canna-struggle: YouTube




ecently, people with cannabis-related content channels on YouTube began seeing a purge, losing content, an audience and for some, a revenue stream. The reasons why are open to speculation, as YouTube has made no statement on the matter. You know who’s awesome at stoned speculation? (Points to self, forgets I’m holding bong, drenches lap. Again.) Fun facts about YouTube: Started waaaaay back in 2003, by 2014 more than 300 hours of video were uploaded to its site every minute of every day. It has over one billion users, nearly a third of every person on the Internet. It’s the thirdmost visited website in the world, is the second-largest search engine (Google is number one, and owns YouTube), and receives 15 billion visits per month. Create a channel, and by becoming a Google AdSense partner, the channel can keep 55 percent of revenue from ads placed at the start of videos. The program does not allow ad placement onto cannabis channels, categorized as “age restricted content.” Instead, channel owners can sell sponsorships and merchandise and enter into branded content deals. Cannabis channels are a fantastic tool for sharing grow and strain information with growers and consumers, along with activists, medical caregivers and patients, and, well, stoners. (My first vaporizer was built using a fishbowl and a wood burner, which I learned about by watching YouTube.) Channels that have been eliminated by YouTube include U.S.-based channels Greenbox Grown (13k subscribers), The High Couple (28K subscribers) and GreenGenes Garden (43K subscribers). The largest Canadian cannabis channel, Urbanremo (190K subscribers), signed a statement in response, listing over 20 European Union, Canadian and U.S.-based, wellknown sites taken down recently. There are content guidelines, with violators receiving up to three “strikes,” after which the channel and all its content gets permanently erased. Those guidelines include posting videos which “...encourage dangerous or illegal activities, include instructional bomb making, choking games, hard drug use or other acts where serious injury may result... .” But YouTube let cannabis channels

grow to 100K+ subscribers, so what’s up? You may recall a year ago there was a bit of a kerfuffle regarding YouTube not exactly monitoring their content that well, or their ad placement, with ads showing up on channels Variety summed up as “American white nationalists, anti-gay preachers and radical Islamic groups.” (Worst answer ever to the question, “Which three people would you invite to a dinner party?”) YouTube told PepsiCo, Proctor & Gamble, AT&T and other multinational advertising clients with billions in ad buy money they were on it. A few months later, there was another outcry when ads were placed on videos that were attracting the attention and comments of pedophiles. YouTube hired some more content screeners and instituted new algorithms to search out “offensive content.” On 4/20, a CNN investigation revealed 300 advertisers such as Amazon had been placed on channels for “white nationalists, Nazis, pedophilia, conspiracy theories and North Korean propaganda.” The couple behind the deleted site The High Couple told Leafly, “YouTube can’t make ad revenue from cannabis content...they updated their algorithm to prevent ‘unsuitable’ content from getting ads delivered against their content and the whole system has been crumbling ever since.” Kord Tagley of GenesGreen Garden told Leafly, “It appears that bots are reviewing the appeals, because they’re getting bounced back in a matter of minutes.” A new startup,, has offered itself as a cannabis-friendly video sharing platform, while others are using Pornhub to host their work. (Still not cool to open up Pornhub on your laptop, guy on plane next to me. Still not cool.) This should be a wakeup call to everyone generating cannabis video content to protect your work by uploading everything first to your own website, share mad links to it, and protect ya neck instead of counting on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram etc. to do it. These entities welcome our presence and money when convenient, but have no affection for cannabis, until it’s descheduled, in which case, who’s your new best friend?
