hile it may seem a simple thing—switching from a plastic bag to carrying your own—it’s actually a big step in turning the tide on a harmful social trend. Progress on small issues such as this require change, and change brings critics. Take City of Bend’s Climate Action Resolution, adopted by the Bend City Council in 2016. Opponents have said it lacks teeth when set against the massive environmental challenges the planet faces—and especially in the face of federal policy that, under the current administration, is undoing environmental regulations recently adopted by the former administration. It’s helpful to remember that each of us who have used even one piece of single-use plastic is contributing to those islands of plastic floating around the Pacific Ocean that are so hard to ignore. One solution to reduce this waste? Simply grabbing a paper bag or leaving a couple bags in your car for reuse. The “Un-Bag Bend” petition, currently circulating around Bend, offers the community one simple—and inexpensive—way to begin making a positive impact. We support the proposed ban, and we urge the Bend City Council to adopt an ordinance with teeth to support this relatively low-impact method of moving toward being more responsible stewards of our environment. The economics of cleaning up single-use plastic bags are staggering. In wind, they’re one of the first things to loose free from the mire at the landfill. Officials at Deschutes County’s Knott landfill say they budget $175,000 to Heart of Oregon Corps annually for cleanup on the periphery of the landfill— estimating that 80 percent of that cleanup is plastic. They budget another $5,000 annually to Juvenile Justice to clean up 27th Street alone—again, mostly plastic. User fees cover some of the cost of maintaining the landfill; your tax dollars also contribute. Plastic breaks down very slowly—so that problem of loose plastic at the landfill is one that almost never goes away. Your tax dollars will be spent on cleaning plastic in perpetuity. Yes, banning the distribution of single-use plastic bags at grocery stores will be a slight inconvenience for some. Yes, you will have to remember to bring your bags to the store. Yet you already manage, in your busy life, to carry your phone, keys and wallet—and maybe even those grocery coupons that save you a

buck or two. Hot tip: Reusable bags fit tidily under the seat of your car, ready when you need them. To be fair, studies have found that the initial manufacture of paper bags has a higher environmental impact than plastic bags. A study conducted by the Australian Department of the Environment & Heritage found that the manufacture of plastic bags can generate about half the greenhouse gas emissions of paper, requiring less than one-third of the energy required to make a paper bag. In the case of the greenhouse gas emissions for the paper bag, however, it’s important to note that the decomposition of the paper bag is part of the reason they generate more greenhouse gas emissions. In other words, it’s because paper bags break down. It takes one month to break down a paper bag. Plastic bags take up to 10 years—and while they may break into smaller pieces, those small particles only make them more easily digestible for wildlife and marine life. And those particles never go away. But let’s be honest with ourselves. The paper versus plastic argument can be moot by simply carrying your own bags. Use your backpack. Turn down a bag altogether when you have just an item or two. Be cool and sport one of those hand-woven baskets to the store. They’re already doing these things in Ashland, Corvallis, Eugene and Portland, where bag bans are already in place. Plastic bags are currently given to you, for free, by retailers. A study published by the Equinox Center in 2013 reported that plastic bags cost 1 cent, while paper costs 15 cents. Retailers in other cities with plastic bag bans recoup that cost—and encourage the use of reusable bags—by charging a fee for each paper bag and offering low-cost, reusable bags at the checkout counter. The Un-Bag Bend group also plans to offer free reusable bags at local retailers. Bend, as a small city on a big planet, might not be able to make a gigantic impact on the overall health of the planet. But when a low-cost opportunity presents itself, which can positively impact not only the prospective budget of a public facility but also can keep harmful, persistent materials out of our waterways, local residents should support it. We do, and we hope you will, too. Sign the petition, found by searching “Un-Bag Bend” at SW

Thanks Genysee, for your well written letter on Climate Change. Yes, we can all do something to slow it down like getting our shopping bags in the car ready to be used again. Shopping at Goodwill, the Habitat Restore or other places first when we want something and by buying local eliminating some shipping and packaging. It is our local businesses who also pay taxes that help Deschutes county have good roads, fire protection etc. I appreciate that The Bend Source honored your letter. —Wilma Campbell


Pardon our dust works if you’re exposed to it for a brief period. Ours is 24/7 and no, pardon our dust just doesn’t work. The city says they don’t have the budget to fix our road properly, so they do nothing. Kyle Thomas with the city states that he looked at the road and it didn’t seem too bad to him. He needs to spend a little time here and actually talk to some of those who are affected. —Jerry Gilmour

feel very uncomfortable with the house prices, the house construction, the neighborhood plans. Quick cheap built house should not cost $300,000 to $500,000. Completely insulting. My son can’t afford to live here renting or buying. There is nowhere for anyone to live that makes under a 6 figure income. —Heather Sky, via Facebook Good article and nice to hear both sides of this! Yes stop sprawling the city all over the place! If it’s concentrated in one location those of us who still appreciate ranching and farming might just be able to afford to still do so! The way it’s going now they are allowing development into the EFU zoned areas (exclusive farm use) people are building fancy custom homes for Airnb on land that was designed for farming and putting anyone who wants to farm or ranch to support themselves and their community out of business! Keep the building growth concentrated in town therefore it doesn’t drastically raise the prices of farm and ranch land. It would be nice to have a link where people can go to get involved more! —Elizabeth Buchanan, via Facebook

IN RESPONSE TO, “REMEMBERING DESHAUN,” ON 5/3 Many thanks to this family for having the strength to talk about this in an effort to bring help to others out of this terrible tragedy. I didn’t know Deshaun, but this story has really touched my heart. This truly is a loss

for the whole community, and my love goes out to the Adderleys. —Ben Mann, via Facebook Deshaun was my nephew’s cousin on his dad’s side, I personally only met this young man a couple times, but his death was and still is very closely felt throughout my whole family. That being said, I am the program director of a new youth ministry here in Central Oregon, our ministry focuses on high risk youth, mostly in the system but I feel God tugging on me to help in this area. We are working on getting a mentoring program up and going and I think kids struggling with depression and/or suicide, would fit well with such a program, if there is any organization out there that can use a Christian presence or might have kids in need of a strong role model in their lives, I would love the opportunity to get together with them and discuss partnering with them to help such youth. We have several churches in the area ready to provide mentors to any kids we can find that would be in need of such. I look forward to hearing from anyone who might be interested. My name is Jonathan Van Vliet and here is my contact information, email jonathan@, phone number 541948-5592 and our Facebook page is @coyfcjjm I can be reached at any of these. We are praying for and seeking out lost youth daily and hope to be nothing but a positive influence in their lives through our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. —Jonathan Van Vliet, via

Kudos & thanks to Jerry for keeping the dusty streets of Bend in the forefront! I live on the corner of a gravel road and a gravel alley in mid- town. Our house & cars are penetrated with the dust from passing vehicles driving down the road! Trying to enjoy an evening on the deck or a day out in the yard is always frustrating. I have never lived on a gravel road & had no idea the impact it would make on our lives. If I could afford another house in Bend, I would surely move! I too have called the city and gotten the same lame response. New sidewalks and curbs going in all over town, but nothing being done on these outdated gravel roads. As the city jams more housing and ADUs into our tiny neighborhoods, the problem escalates. Our block of six dwelling units is soon to become nine, increasing use on the  gravel alley and road.  It seems as though the city is picking and choosing who to support; more ADUs, more affordable housing............but what about the current homeowners????? Yes Jerry, I want to support your cause! How do I sign up? —Carol Scafe

The U.S. Forest Service is considering a quota system in the Central Cascades Wilderness areas 6 WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / May 17, 2018, 2018  /  BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

By Chris Miller


rying to get into the Green Lakes parking area in the summer is like traveling back in time to August 1969 and finding parking near the Yasgur family farm. Cars lining both sides of the road, dogs and children running around, creating an unsafe situation for motorists and trail users. If the U.S. Forest Service changes the way hiking and camping is managed in the wilderness area of parts of the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests, some of the Woodstock-style parking stress may be relieved—but so will the option to just grab your boots and go on a day hike. As part of the current Central Cascades Wilderness Strategies Project, the Forest Service created an environmental assessment of the Mount Jefferson Wilderness, Three Sisters Wilderness, Mount Washington Wilderness and Diamond Peak Wilderness. As a result of that assessment, the Forest Service is proposing an overnight camping quota system for all trailheads in the wilderness areas, and a quota system on all Three Sisters eastside, Highway 242 trailheads and Mt. Jefferson Wilderness west side trailheads. According to the assessment, the quotas are in response to increased use in these areas. Overall use in the Three Sisters Wilderness has increased by 231 percent since 1991 and 181 percent since 2011. Meanwhile, according

to the assessment, the Tam McCarthur Rim Trailhead has seen a 538 percent increase in users from 2014 to 2016. According to the August 2016 assessment, Tam Rim had nearly 40 overnight users per night and 350 day users per day in July 2016. Green Lakes, one of the most easily accessed trails near Bend, had over 40 overnight users per night in August 2016 and 250 day users per day in July of the same year. Under the proposed permit and quota system, Green Lakes would be limited to 17 overnight groups of up to 12 people per group, per day, and 80 day-use permits per day, according to Beth Peer of the Deschutes National Forest. Tam Rim would be limited to five overnight groups and 80 day use permits per day. Users would buy permits online through Recreation. gov, the contractor the Forest Service is required to use, Peer said.

visitors on how to be responsible driving in town and recreating in the outdoors. In May 2017, the Forest Service mailed out a description of its proposed action to 476 individuals, organizations and agencies, receiving a total of 465 responses. One commenter suggested not putting restrictions on public lands, because citizens have the right to be on public land, and because they pay taxes,

Forest Service: tourism promotion and social media. “The use of social media to promote outdoor recreation and encourage more visitors to particular destinations in not likely to decrease in the coming years,” the assessment said. Visit Bend was created by the Bend City Council to develop and build Bend’s tourism industry. Its website is full of beautiful pictures of the town and the surrounding recreational areas. But its staff says they also understand the impact of the growing population, working with the Forest Service to educate visitors and locals on stewardship of the lands. That includes teaching Leave No Trace principles, and avoiding geotagging their photos, according to Nate Wyeth, Visit Bend’s vice president of sales and marketing. Kevney Dugan, Visit Bend’s CEO and president, said they even give a copy of Visit Bend’s visitors guide to the Forest Service to see if it raises any red flags. “If they tell us not to use Green Lakes, we won’t put it in our visitors guide,” Dugan said. Visit Bend also promotes the “Bend Pledge,” an initiative aimed at educating

it should be free. When it comes to public lands with wilderness designations, it’s not that simple. The Wilderness Act of 1964 created a National Wilderness Preservation System, which gives Congress-designated wilderness areas a “very high level of protection and the Wilderness Act sets these wilderness areas apart from other public lands and establishes a mission objective for the Forest Service to preserve wilderness character.” According to the Forest Service, wilderness character has the following qualities: untrammeled, underdeveloped, natural, unconfined recreation and opportunities for solitude. Ellen Wolf is one local resident concerned about overuse of trails. “I am in favor of the Forest Service’s efforts to protect the Cascades Wilderness and [I] want them to succeed,” Wolf told the Source in an email. But, she has concerns about how the Forest Service will manage its efforts. Possible issues could arise with enforcing the permit system, for one. “Those of us who follow the rules will not be able to hike, while those who don’t will continue to hike regardless of whether or not they have a permit,” Wolf said. In the assessment, the Forest Service

said the level of enforcement will vary based on fee retention and the ability to increase funding [for enforcement]. Another point of contention is the cost of the permits. As of now, the Forest Service hasn’t commented on its plan for the price of permits. On its website, Oregon Wild, a wildlife and wildland advocacy organization, advocates for setting prices at the absolute bare minimum to avoid pricing the public, at any income level, out of public lands. The organization would also like to see the proposed permit dates changed from May 1 to September 30 to June 1 through Labor Day to minimize the impacts in the so-called shoulder seasons. The Forest Service has four other alternatives it’s looking at in addition to its proposed plan: Alternative one: Continue to manage the wilderness areas without change. Alternative two: The Forest Service’s preferred plan would have an overnight camping permit system and a day-use quota system on all Three Sisters eastside, Highway 242 and Mt. Jefferson west side trailheads and self-use free permits with no limits everywhere else. Alternative three: Focus visitor use management on the very high use trail areas only, such as Green Lakes and Tam Rim. Alternative four: Similar to three, but also “includes limited entry permits for areas that are gaining in popularity and have a high likelihood of receiving displaced users,” according to the assessment. Alternative five: The most strictly regulated option, which would require limited entry permits wilderness-wide for overnight and day use. The public comment period ends May 21.

Spare Some Change? By Chris Miller

Let’s face it, Bend isn’t a sleepy logging, skiing, biking…—you get the point—town anymore. It’s becoming a city, and cities have issues, such as people sleeping on the streets or in alleyways or using the alleys as a toilet. And the oft most-hated thing for people walking down the sidewalk on their way to dinner or shopping: panhandling. The Downtown Bend Business Association is trying to slow instances of panhandling with the creation of the Bend Cares campaign. It’s designed to “help educate our community on how to give responsibly, add additional security in downtown, and increase the cleanliness of downtown with monthly high-pressure washing.” The City Council voted on April 18 to fund the DBBA by taking some of the $.25 per square foot fees that businesses inside the Economic Improvement District have elected to pay. According to a DBBA budget draft, this put about $46,000 toward a new security program and more than $8,000 toward cleaning. “Here’s what we saw talking to business and building owners: ‘we want our business to succeed and we want our guests to come down, park in the garage, walk through town and feel safe. We want our employees to go to their cars and feel safe,’” Mindy Aisling, DBBA’s executive director, said. “And all of that needs to happen.” Bill Smith, who I found sitting between dumpsters in the alleyway by Pedego Electric bikes May 14, told me he’s been homeless since he was 12. The now 55-year old says he doesn’t panhandle or roll his sleeping bag out on the sidewalk, and that most people panhandling are respectful. “There’s been a few times I’ve seen stuff that’s been out of line, but most keep in line,” Smith said, reading a magazine. “Most people will offer you money or food without having to ask.” The projects the DBBA is working on are slated to begin in late June or early July, Aisling said, starting with the pressure washing and cleaning and the creation of a website,, which will allow people to donate money to local charities who help with the homeless. “What we thought was, when somebody sees somebody with a sign on the street and they’re asking for money, how great would it be if there was an app or like an easy website where you’re like,

Some business owners say panhandlers are wrecking the vibe. Here’s what downtown leaders are doing about it

‘oh, donate here,’ and it goes directly to an organization,” Aisling said. One of those organizations is Bethlehem Inn, a homeless shelter in Bend. “We are possible beneficiaries and I think the funds will go where they are most needed,” Gwenn Wysling, Bethlehem Inn’s executive director, said. “I think this program will really help strengthen the fabric of our community and provide a long-term solution for those who are in crisis or struggling.” Another beneficiary is Family Kitchen, which serves three dinners and four lunches each week, averaging 4,700 meals a month, according to its website. Donna Burklo, Family Kitchen’s program director, said the Bend Cares program will help aid both in funding and spreading awareness to services provided in Bend. “The more people realize the services available, and funding those services is better than giving to an individual panhandler,” Burklo said. “The charitable community is very connected and open.” Smith said he thought the ability for people to donate to local charities would be helpful, and that he uses meal services every day, except Sunday. “You have to plan ahead,” Smith said. Aisling said the City is currently contracted with Security Pros and has paid for security for the first year of the pilot program, which runs out Sept. 30. If the pilot program is successful and gets positive feedback from stakeholders, Aisling said it would continue, but change security companies. “Our plan is to use Franklin Security,” she said. “We work closely with Franklin Security through our Late Night in Bend project.” Lt. Clint Burleigh, of the Bend Police Department, said he sees the increased security as an asset to help police increase their presence and safety in the downtown area. “We have worked with the security company to augment everything else we have been doing to increase safety in downtown,” Burleigh said. “We are not trying to replace our staff with security; we are using the asset to enhance the safety we provide.” Aisling said she would like to see a program in the future that allows homeless people to work for some of their aid—like spending a couple of hours cleaning alleys—to give them empowerment and take ownership about how downtown looks. “As we expand, if we expand it into like a job program, we can put that on the flier and do that kind of thing,” Aisling said. “But I would love to see that. Really for me, it’s about that integration piece—we’re all here, we all have needs—let’s see how we can integrate them instead of saying, ‘oh, those mean merchants don’t want people downtown,’ or ‘those mean transient people are causing my customers problems.’”  SW Intern Danielle Meyers contributed to this report.

Some said she couldn’t do it. But for one intrepid river lover, running the John Day from Clarno to Cottonwood on a paddleboard was NBD By: K.M. Collins


he sun is barely up and I’m launching. Current—2,500 cubic feet per second of it— catches my fin. I had hoped to run Clarno to Cottonwood on the John Day River twice already this spring, but it didn’t work out. As my standup paddleboard (or standup paddle raft, as I like to think of it) gently coasts over the first riffle, the relief of pulling the trigger on a mission settles over me. Redemption. Getting time on the river, privately and professionally, is a priority for the community in which I circulate—but it might be a different story if President Lyndon Johnson hadn’t signed the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act in 1968. Upon doing so, he stated, “In the past 50 years, we have learned—all too slowly, I think—to prize and protect God’s precious gifts… An unspoiled river is a very rare thing in this nation today.” At the time, Congress stated, “The National policy of dams and other construction at appropriate sections of the rivers of the United States needs to be complemented by a policy that would preserve other selected rivers or sections thereof in their free-flowing condition to protect the water quality of such rivers and to fulfill other vital national conservation purposes,” as noted in the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. Today, 12,734 miles on 208 rivers in the U.S.—or a little more than one-quarter of 1 percent of the nation’s rivers— are protected under the Act. Compare that to more than

75,000 large dams across the country, modifying at least 600,000 miles, or about 17 percent, of rivers in the U.S. It’s a start, but saying the dam policy complements the Act’s policy might be a stretch. Still, Oregon’s rivers get more protection than other locales. En route to the Grand Ronde River earlier this spring, fellow boater, Hank Hill, explained that multi-day raft trips on the east coast aren’t an option the way they are in Oregon. There, rivers are chopped up with dams, or are privately owned. There are 58 National Wild and Scenic River designations in Oregon—more than any other state., a website maintained by a host of public and private agencies, lists the protected rivers in Central Oregon as the Metolius, Deschutes, Little Deschutes, Big Marsh Creek, Crooked, Whychus Creek, Crescent Creek and the John Day. Alone on the John Day With each paddle stroke, redemption coursed through the conduits of my body like braided streams, my heart the ultimate aquifer. I mentally briefed myself on the plan one more time. Clarno to Cottonwood, 70 miles in one night and two days. Shuttle scheduled at the take-out by 2 pm the second day. Key in the gas cap, payment under the floor mat (a familiar protocol to any boater). Plan A: 50 miles the first day, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. Plan B: Split the difference, 35 miles per day. Plan C: If afternoon upriver winds rage, make it a two-nighter. Whether A, B or C, all systems go. The scenery forced my brain out of planning. As pasture gave way to towering basalt terraces, sometimes scorched red and oxidizing, sometimes shrouded in a soft and endless veil of fuzzy grass, the longest continued on page 10...

Wild and Scenic Rivers Act’s




undammed river in Oregon hypnotized me. Between walls of lava, sandwiched in a canyon, I met the Clarno and Basalt Rapids. Some sources call Clarno a Class 3 to 4; some sources call Basalt Class 2 to 3. (For those unfamiliar, Class 1 is the easiest rapid; Class 6 the toughest.) I called them both a good opportunity to get detailed on how to read a river map. Following the beta for the best scouting location would be critical if I didn’t want to end up in the middle of a whitewash, sight unseen. Running the rapids A few things happened to me as a kid that left me a little terrified of water, and I knew some of those memories would surface during the trip. Scouting and choosing safest methods for running the rapids ended up not being that big of a deal, but that aspect of the journey had been the most intimidating, back home, planning on my couch. The gnarliest bit was when, just after Clarno Rapid, adrenaline pumping, I unintentionally slapped myself with the T grip on my paddle. For the remainder of the trip, my right-side jaw was a little achy, in the same location where I had a tumor removed 10 years ago. I felt a big victory at river mile 16 when I could say I had successfully navigated the hardest sections of water. Finding myself dropping over Lower Clarno Rapid backwards notwithstanding, Wild and Scenic though it was, clutching my paddle, waiting to smash through a huge hole in reverse, I found myself stalled out in an eddy at the base of the drop, facing upriver, unmoving. It felt amazing to have inadvertently avoided what felt like certain mayhem, however unplanned, however sloppy and accidental. MADE IT! From here, it was all downhill (but isn’t it always on a river?). I enjoyed the playful rapids, one after another, coming at least every mile, sometimes timed with a bend in the channel, sometimes associated with a constriction. As I punched out miles, I flipped the pages of the map and read the interpretive boxes sprinkled throughout. One such notation mentioned there once was a river boat named the John Day Queen. I adopted this title for my own vessel and shouted it out frequently. Before I knew it, 11 hours had flown by and I was 50 miles deep. Mission accomplished. Day one down I slept the deepest sleep of my life. In my slumber, the river de-fragged and reformatted my hard drive. Disempowering memories were swapped out and replaced with the day’s most empowering moments. Fierce female emerging.

The next morning I paddled three and a half hours to the take out. Arriving at noon, I beat the shuttle by two hours. In total, a 29-hour, 15-minute trip. When, at 2:30 pm there was still no sign of my vehicle, I hoofed it over to Cottonwood State Park and flagged down ranger Stan for help. He kindly offered the use of a satellite phone. At 3:30 pm my chariot arrived, and I En route to Clarno, the Rajneesh Antelope Cafe, sage steppe landscape began the painless process and a rainbow over an old church a few 100 yards from the put-in. of de-rigging a paddleboard. It’s not just a fear of water that can spook me running rapids. I got the sh** beaten out of me when I was a kid, too. A lot. I got dragged through department stores by my forearm and forced into bathroom stalls or behind curtains. My mom was mild in public. The Class 4 and 5 beatings happened at our government-subsidized duplex in the Beaverton projects. There’s a humiliation in child abuse akin to drowning. The abuse came complete with poverty—and not just financial. I grew up hungry, first for food, then for knowledge, challenge and experience… for a shot at what I saw other kids had. I found outdoor recreation late in life, giving me a wealth and support I had never known. It’s been an outlet, a redemption of sorts. What my fate would have been

Bend’s Wild and Scenic controversy And the administration isn’t the only challenge posed for these Wild and Scenic Rivers—even locally. In Bend, the possibility of a pedestrian bridge over the Deschutes south of town, along the Wild and Scenic portion of the river, has river advocates concerned. Oregon Wild states on its website, “Building a bridge on the protected stretch of river would require weakening river protections afforded by the State and Forest Service. In a day and age when our public lands are threatened at all levels, whether it’s Monuments in Utah, State Forests in Oregon, or Wildlife Refuges in Alaska, any weakening of public lands protections is a red flag and potential slippery slope bad precedent.” Are we learning all too slowly, as President Johnson feared? “I asked myself how we would get people excited about celebrating a piece of legislation,” said Executive Director of Discover Your Forest, Rika Ayotte. “Of course we all can very easily celebrate the rivers we love, but how do we make sure that we truly celebrate the laws that protect these amazing resources. I think that people are more aware than ever that protections for our public lands are not automatic or guaranteed and that it is so important that we as citizens participate in the civic processes to maintain these treasured places.”

It’s the adventure People ask me if traveling solo on the river is scary. I’ve known many scary things; being alone is not one of them. On every journey there are a few big rapids that make me pause. But I wouldn’t forgo the adventure for fear of confronting these moments. They are only a quarter of a quarter percent compared to, as President Johnson might say, the precious Wild and Scenic gifts the rest of the river holds. Local river advocates have a host of activities planned to celebrate the Wild and Scenic Act’s 50th anniversary through the end of the year.

without the playground of public lands and Wild and Scenic Rivers, I cannot say. After my trip, I received an email from a prominent local inflatable paddleboarder. He laughed at me, through the written word, for suggesting that I might be capable of running Clarno to Cottonwood. He went on to berate my perspectives on downriver paddleboard touring. To be sure I understood his authority, he wrote out his resume for me. The funny thing is, his email arrived after I completed the mission. It made me wonder why people like to guard access and pretend only a certain chosen few are allowed admission. Reality abides. Downriver paddleboarding isn’t that hard—especially if you’ve ever faced any kind of real life adversity, like being homeless or having authorities intervene because your teachers can tell you’re being neglected. In time, in the spirit of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, I hope where there is exclusion in the paddle and outdoor industry, we can collectively grow toward access and inclusion. When I think of the threats to public lands—particularly Wild and Scenic Rivers—that the current White House Administration poses, I think of all that stands to be lost. I think of all the little girls in our country growing up like I did—little girls who need a playground.

oing anything for 30 years deserves celebration. Whether it’s a wedding anniversary, your 30th birthday or performing as a band for 30 years, persistence should be celebrated. Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer, friends from high school in Bellingham, Wash., formed the alt-rock band The Posies 30 years ago, recording “Failure” at home and self releasing the cassette tape. That earned them a record deal with Geffen Records. Soon, The Posies would become labelmates with the likes of Sonic Youth and Nirvana. Along with the band’s 30-year anniversary, they’re also running a PledgeMusic campaign to crowdfund the licensing of three of their first albums from Universal. “There are some aspects to these records that, I think sonically and for the context of them, they deserve a little bit of a nicer frame than just being on Spotify—which is what Universal would

With a 30-year catalogue of music, The Posies also have options when it comes to a setlist. Don’t expect a full Posies reunion, however. Stringfellow doesn’t foresee recording new material with this lineup. “At the moment, were we to make another record, we would probably pick up where we left off in 2017 with the lineup that made the last record,” Stringfellow says. “We really found something with that lineup that’s kind of been put on hold. When this anniversary came up it seemed like an important thing to do.”  SW

Relatable Expression Brooklyn’s Animal Years connects with listeners through shared similar experiences By Anne Pick Submitted



Mike McFadden, center, and Animal Years will appeal to fans of The Lumineers, Josh Ritter and The Head and The Heart.


ook at the stats for Brooklyn-based folk-rockers Animal Years and you can’t help but be impressed, even before hearing their infectious sound. In December, “Rolling Stone” named Animal Years among its “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.” The band hits the sweet spot, appealing to lovers of both folk and pop. For their five-song EP “Far From Home,” Animal Years scored producer Ryan Hadlock—known for his work with The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile and Vance Joy. “That was super cool,” Animal Years singer and primary songwriter Mike McFadden says of the recognition. “I didn’t believe it. It’s amazing to go from kind of writing songs in your bedroom to being recognized by the greatest music magazine ever. I think anyone that has a decent head on their shoulders has a hard time processing that.” McFadden started writing music around age 14. He had friends in high school who were performing and thought he should try it. “It was the curiosity,” McFadden says. “Can I come up with something that hasn’t been said before? Can I be a part of this? I think that kind of inspired me. It’s therapy for a lot of people. People express themselves, and they express it through music because it doesn’t sting as much if you put it to music.” McFadden loves being able to take something that happened to him and to express it almost immediately. Many people share similar experiences and feelings, and being able to relate to someone through music resonates with McFadden. “You realize everyone has the same shit going on,” McFadden says. Animal Years will appeal to fans of Kings of Leon, Josh Ritter, The Lumineers and The Head and The Heart—all, in some way, offering that country-style, folk-rock and Americana sound that’s proven to be a popular and relatable genre. McFadden grew up on the music of John Prine and loves the folksy sound of songwriters Josh Ritter and Ray LaMontagne. Animal Years even takes their name from a Ritter album. Animal Years plans to record a full-length album after touring in support of “Far From Home.” They’ve written a lot of songs and recorded some demos. Now, they’re ready to get back in the studio and record their first album for a record label. For now, McFadden can’t wait to come to the Pacific Northwest, since the band has never played Oregon or Washington until now. “We’re excited to see new things all the time,” McFadden says.  SW Animal Years

Sunriver’s ‘Everything’ Store is now the ‘Coolest’ Store!

Ask about our layaway plan. 200 NE Greenwood Ave

541-382-3245 OPEN MON-FRI 10-6, SAT 10-5

Sunriver’s “everything” store, Camp Abbot Trading Co., has earned the prestigious title: “Coolest Hardware Store,” awarded by Ace Hardware, which has more than 5,000 stores. Over the years, only 15 stores have been awarded this honor. “It is an honor and a privilege to be recognized as a 2018 ‘Coolest Hardware Store,’” says Oregon Operations Manager Dale Murphy. “With its diverse products offering everything from hardware to sporting goods to products handcrafted by local artisans, Camp Abbot Trading Company has evolved from an everyday hardware store into Sunriver’s ‘Everything Store.’ It’s a great feeling to be able to support and service our community.” Camp Abbot General Manager Kenny Crain chimes in, “We carry premiere brands like Carhartt, Hallmark, Ace Hardware, Stihl, Traeger, Yeti, and many more.” Other popular brands the store carries include Craftsman, Purina, Coleman and Valspar. “I believe the reason why this store has become one of the coolest hardware stores in the world, is because it’s not just a hardware store,” says Assistant Manager Chris Johns. “When you come in here, you can shop for almost anything you would ever want or need, and we have great employees who can help you with any of your questions.” The store is coming up on its first anniversary, having opened its doors in May, 2017, and now has 20 employees. The store was also named as one of the Top 3 Coolest Christmas stores of 2017. During the winter months, the garden center is transformed into Santa’s Winter Wonderland, with live reindeer, live-cut Christmas trees, and Santa listening to kids’ wishes on the weekends. “In the winter time we try to go all out with the decor, lights, and we also had real reindeer here,” Chris adds. “I never would have thought in my lifetime that I would be taking care of real reindeer on Christmas Day; it was pretty surreal. In the summer time we have a full-blown garden center with a bunch of plants, flowers, trees, shrubs, patio sets and grilling accessories. I have worked in retail for a while now and this store by far is one of the most fun and most challenging to work at, with so many moving parts all the time.” The store’s mission is to keep customers happy, and if they don’t have something in stock, store personnel say they can order it. The welcoming store’s entryway has the warm appearance of a lodge, as customers can browse 32,000 square feet of retail space on five acres. It is named after the original military base in Central Oregon. Rick McKee, multi-store manager for Ace Hardware, says that one-half of the store is really an Ace Hardware store, while the other half is nothing more than the owners’ imagination, concerning the wide range of inventory. Locals and visitors alike can find clothing, sporting goods, gifts, housewares, pet and farm supplies, tool rentals, a complete garden center, and of course, hardware. There’s even a Hallmark Gold Crown store within a store. Camp Abbot Trading Company is located at 56820 Venture Lane in Sunriver; 541593-8168; Store hours are 8 am to 7 pm Monday through Saturday and 9 am to 6 pm Sundays.

Too stubborn to quit



Student Exhibitions at OSU and COCC


he showcasing of one’s work is a right of passage for an artist, vital in an artist’s growth and development. Student exhibitions are popping up all over town this month—a great opportunity to see new voices emerging in the community. OSU-Cascades will showcase two Bachelors of Fine Arts students’ work this month on the 2nd floor of the dining hall. Erica Durtschi will exhibit a piece that began last fall as an animation project for a class and grew into a larger claymation piece. On display will be her 3D models used in the animations, as well as the animations themselves. Meanwhile, Alicia Welbourn, who grew up in Central Oregon, will showcase largescale photographs and three smaller collage panels that speak to a sense of home and the unique topography of the region. Welbourn uses a variety of techniques,



This means women can spar with men who are larger than them and win, Barton explained. “Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is like a human game of chess,” Barton described. “The guys might be more like King Kong, with an ‘I will come and get you,’ mentality, but they don’t always understand body mechanics. For women it’s all about hips and grips.” Barton has been climbing for the past 13 years, and she thinks the skills she learned in that sport give her an advantage when it comes to sparring with opponents larger and stronger. “They call me the angry backpack, because I latch on and you can’t get me off,” Barton said with pride. “It’s pretty fun to make a large Marine fall hard.” Although Barton has competed in the sport, she’s looking for bigger rewards in the future. After a few more years of training, she’d like to start teaching self-defense in areas that have high rates of crimes against women. Because you don’t have to be larger or stronger than

your opponent to beat them, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an ideal form of self-defense for women. “I want to do something that’s bigger than me, and somehow I feel like it’s my job to pass this on to more women, and to empower them,” she explained. “I don’t like being scared, because being afraid can prevent you from doing a lot of things. So I had to learn to master fearful situations.” When Barton isn’t trying to kick butt on the mats, you can find her poking people at Recharge Sport. She has been practicing acupuncture there for the past three and a half years. It might seem like acupuncture and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are at odds with each other. But actually, they both come out of the Shaolin martial arts, Barton explained. Martial artists had to heal their broken bodies, and sometimes the best Martial artists were also the best healers. “The best martial artists know when to heal and when to harm,” Barton said. SW

By Teafly Peterson incorporating map making and collaging, to give us a new idea of landscape and our connection to it. Kiel Fletcher, the Studio Art program Lead at OSU-Cascades since 2015, sees the work as an exciting opportunity to witness two new young artists in the community. The program continues to grow at OSU-Cascades and may offer a degree in Arts Media and Technology in the future. Also currently on display is the annual student exhibition at Central Oregon Community College, in the Barber Library Rotunda. The show was juried by Greg Amanti and Heather Crank of Crahmanti, an art and design collective. “Held every spring term, the exhibition provides students who are studying art at COCC an opportunity to show their work,” said Professor of Art, Bill Hoppe. The show features work across a variety of mediums and will be on display until June 7.  SW

By Caitlin Richmond “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” Barton described. “It wrecks your body. I’m the only girl in my class, so there are some interesting, weird dynamics because there’s a lot of contact—you’re literally on top of each other.” Because of the nature of Brazilian Jui-jitsu, and the fact that many people start the sport after they have already had a background in Mixed Martial Arts or wrestling, it can be an uncomfortable sport, especially for newcomers. You might think this means newbies don’t last long, but when they have a stubborn streak like Barton does, they stick around. “Moving up in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an arduous, persevering journey,” Barton said. “When I started I told myself I had to try it for three weeks, and then I could quit if I didn’t like it. I didn’t want to quit when I completely sucked. And after three weeks I just wanted to keep going.” Unlike other martial arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu involves less striking your opponent and much more grappling, typically on the mat. The focus is on the concept that a bigger opponent doesn’t always have the upper hand, especially if you can get the fight to the ground.


“They call me the angry backpack, because I latch on and you can’t get me off. It’s pretty fun to make a large Marine fall hard.”

Almine Barton, acupuncturist and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner hen Almine Barton was young, her parents sat her down and told her she was extremely likely to become addicted to something. She was the middle child in her family, and all of the other middle children in past generations had died because of their addictions. She decided to take matters in her own hands, with some help from her parents. “I had a gut sense early on that with my addictive personality, if I used vices things would not come out well,” Barton explained. “You get a choice in addictions, and you have to occupy your brain with something large that needs caretaking to keep you busy.” Her parents got her into horseback riding because they figured having something large to take care of would have more impact, the larger the animal. A healer by day and a fighter by night, today Barton divides her time between acupuncture and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Even though it’s the hardest sport she says she’s ever done, she’s obsessed, and eventually wants to teach other women the art of self-defense. Barton will be the first to admit she’s addicted to mastering the comfortable and the uncomfortable, but she’s also addicted to the dump of adrenaline she gets from her sports of choice— rock climbing, and more recently, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

All the fires from last season mean the mushrooms are popping now. Before you head out to hunt, get a permit. It’s free and you can collect up to 2 gallons per person, per day. Any mushrooms you pick should be cut in half lengthwise at time of harvest. You aren’t allowed to sell your mushrooms unless you purchase a commercial permit for $20. When you’re out, don’t disturb the surrounding vegetation and leave some fruiting bodies to produce spores for next year. You also don’t want to remove or scrape away the duff layer— the dead plant material that’s fallen to the ground—and no raking is allowed. It’s important to know the rules before you go, helping conserve resources for future years. For more information visit

Good Kind of McCarthyism SCREEN The “Life of the Party” balances heart with laughs By Jared Rasic Warner Bros

and moments that actively combat the idea that women will always be catty to each other. There’s something deeply refreshing about a lowbrow comedy taking not only a feminist view, but also managing to pack in big laughs. Not all of the jokes work and the third act is a mess, but by then I was so fully won over by the film’s good nature that it was hard to really care that much. Maybe I’m a soft sell after the painfully awful “Super Troopers 2,” but any comedy featuring Gillian Jacobs as a college student who just awoke from an eightyear coma, on top of a fun and goofy-ass dance battle, is already hitting several of my comedy sweet spots. Many modern comedies feel they have to throw in some drama at the end to give our beloved main character one final bit of adversity to overcome, but filmmakers should realize that we’re already won over by the movie’s warmth and the silly jokes by that point and just want to spend more time watching

everyone be stupid and adorable. We don’t need last minute life lessons or some corny studio-mandated moral. Instead, filmmakers should trust in the jokes to carry the day. While “Life of the Party” might be painfully dorky in many of the right ways, it’s just a nice change of pace to see something so fully committed to being good-natured and sweet. So many modern comedies are desperate to seem post-modern and edgy that it’s nice to spend 90 minutes around people who couldn’t care less about seeming cool. This is ugly Christmas sweater comedy, and I love it. SW

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic


May the Source be With You

Russian spies, true crime killers and the dearly departed By Jared Rasic 39 VOLUME 22  ISSUE 20  /  May 17, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Last year, I watched so many movies, I barely had time to enjoy the so-called Golden Age of Television that exists right before our eyes. This year, I’m trying to slow down on all the excellent cinema and give some more focus to podcasts and some good TV. Of course, right when I decide to do that, five of my favorite shows get canceled in the same day, so maybe this is why I shouldn’t be allowed to have nice things. Regardless of my difficulties, here are a few things very much worth your time this month.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Westworld and The Americans walk into a bar.

In Pod We Trust:


Just when I think I’m the only person obsessed with true crime podcasts, a dozen more people pop up to talk to me about the latest episode of “My Favorite Murder” or the fact that the police might have finally caught the absolutely terrifying Golden State Killer. For the true crime-obsessed out there, I recommend “In the Dark,” a podcast that just launched its stellar second season, focused on the strange case of convicted murderer Curtis Flowers. For those missing the twists and turns of “Serial,” this will definitely tide you over.

Let’s take a moment to say goodbye to a few shows that deserved to go out on their own terms, instead of getting canceled with little to no fanfare, leaving the fans in limbo, awaiting a resolution to stories that will never come. Goodbye, “The Expanse.” You were the best hard scifi show on television and never got the love you deserved. Goodbye, “The Last Man on Earth.” You were too sublimely weird for this world. Goodbye, “The Exorcist.” You were way scarier than “The Walking Dead” and you always will be. Goodbye, “Lucifer.” You made the devil sexy and hilarious. Goodbye, “Quantico.” You were my sweet, sweet guilty pleasure. Almost goodbye, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” You make me laugh and I’m glad NBC saved

you from death. This season of “Westworld” is appointment television so far, with some of the biggest twists and turns since the first season of “Lost.” Even without Anthony Hopkins, the show still retains some of the finest performances on television. If you’re looking for an excuse to get HBONow, look no further than this FutureNoir Western. There are only a few episodes left in this final season of “The Americans,” so it might be a little late to join the bandwagon now, but when all six impeccably crafted seasons are on Blu and ready to binge, you’ll find one of the most intensely complex shows of all time. In a decade, “The Americans” and its domestic spy shenanigans will be spoken about with the same reverence as “The Sopranos,” “The Wire” and “Deadwood.” SW

In Search of Antlers

Shed hunting is a popular seasonal pastime—like a spring easter Egg hunt for adults By Brian Jennings

about their habits, behaviors and food sources. That helps you become a better hunter and makes you love it enough to want to conserve and protect it.” Rob Tanner of Redmond also shares a passion for shed hunting. “When we stumble upon an antler, it’s fascinating to know that a deer or elk was standing in that spot when it fell.” Tanner helped form a 7,000-member Facebook group called Oregon Shed Hunters in 2005. “From that point on, it’s been like a big Easter egg hunt for adults.” OSH’s Troy Capps, of Terrebonne, says hunting sheds is an opportunity for family and friends to share time outdoors. “We can hike all day long and not find anything and have a great time, or we can find 30 sheds in a day. It’s just getting out there, seeing the country and the animals.” Each year, the Oregon Shed Hunters sponsor a statewide gathering in which participants spend a weekend searching for antlers. But, with that growing passion, Tanner, Capps and Smith are concerned about creating too much pressure on animal herds on winter ranges. Regulating Shed Hunting While other Western states have begun regulating shed hunting, Michelle Dennehy of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife in Salem says Oregon doesn’t have a need for formal regulation—yet. “I’m not aware of any plans to formalize a shed hunting season, but we do have winter range closures at some of our wildlife areas, and travel restrictions in parts of the state known to

serve as winter range, to try and minimize impacts to big game from shed hunting,” she states. Both Tanner and Smith concur with potential restrictions. “We want what’s right for the critters. We’ve had this mission to educate people on the ethics of shed hunting. If it comes to a point where the Oregon Shed Hunters and ODFW and others can’t prevent degradation, we would stand behind some regulations for the protection of the animals,” says Tanner. Smith agrees. “A shed season would 100 percent help. A lot of guys don’t want to hear that, but it’s the truth.” Smith speculates formal shed regulations would prohibit antler hunting from January 1 to April 1, when critical winter ranging occurs and when antlers begin to shed. Ethical Awareness Whether there will be formal shed hunting regulation in Oregon depends on those who participate, according to the three hunters. Tanner says, “If you see where animals are feeding or bedding down, or hanging out, try to avoid them for the most part. Bumping them once is probably OK, but if you’re continually going to the same area and bumping the same critters daily, that’s not good. They don’t have a lot of reserves to be running around and expending energy on avoiding people and vehicles.” Smith concurs. “If we do see deer, we really try to keep our distance. If we want to look at them, we have our binoculars. Give them their space.” He also advises keeping dogs in check. But,

t’s becoming one of the more popular outdoor pursuits in regions where deer and elk herds thrive. In late fall, winter, and early spring, these animals seek lower elevation ranges that provide safety, shelter and food before migrating back to richer summer range. Deer seek lower ranges than elk, generally, where snow isn’t as deep and where they can move more freely. They consume natural and nutrient-rich food sources such as red brush, a form of bitterbrush that sustains them through the winter season. And, they shed their antlers. As a result, the act of shed hunting has become quite popular, especially among hunters who study deer habits and migration patterns that may help them scout animals during the fall hunting season. It’s also an activity that can be pursued by anyone who likes to get outdoors—especially during the cooler seasons. For some, it’s more than a hobby; it’s an obsession. Lifelong hunter and conservationist, Thom Smith of La Pine, along with his son, Cody, admit to the obsession. They hunt antler sheds almost every weekend during the winter and spring. The piles of antlers at their home are evidence of their success. “It’s what we love to do. During the week, we think about it a lot and we can’t wait to get back out and see what we find the next go-around,” says Smith, who figures his son Cody will rack up 300 to 400 miles in search of antlers this year. Researching animal behavior is a top priority. “It’s 100 percent a part of this,” says Smith. “You can’t help but learn

Have antler, will hunt for said antlers.

Smith admits that people often don’t do that. “High pressure does affect our deer and elk out here.” Capps of the Oregon Shed Hunters is hopeful that the state can avoid regulations. “If people do the right thing now, hopefully we wouldn’t have to be regulated. But if they don’t, we’d certainly support more regulation.” SW Central Oregon Daily’s Brian Jennings produces “The Great Outdoors,” on the air 6 pm Wednesdays on KOHD (ABC) and 7pm on KBNZ (CBS).

I’m a 33-year-old woman, and I’ve always been thin. I lost about 12 pounds after a tough breakup. I’m working on getting back to a healthier weight. However, people keep making cutting remarks about how thin I look. Yesterday a friend said, “You’re so skinny it’s gross!” I’d noticed that she’d gained quite a bit of weight, but I didn’t say anything…because that would be rude! She made other digs about my weight, and upon hugging me goodbye, she said, “Eww, is that your shoulder bone?!” What’s with this double standard? There’d be hell to pay if I said the slightest thing about anyone’s weight gain. —Tempted To Lash Back

It is more taboo than ever to make cracks about a woman’s weight—that is, unless she doesn’t have a whole lot of it. Then it’s open season: “Wow, what happened to you? Forget where the supermarket is?” However, it probably is not “people” but “people who are female” who are thin-shaming you. Welcome to female intrasexual competition—competition between women—which is covert and sneaky (and thus poisonous) in a way male-on-male competition is not. Men, who evolved to be the warriors and protectors of the species, tend to be openly aggressive. A guy will give another guy a beat-down or publicly dis him: “Yeah, bro, sure you can get a chick to go home with you—if you’ve got five grand for a sex robot.” Psychologist Tracy Vaillancourt explains that women seem to have evolved to avoid physical confrontations (and in-your-face verbal attacks that can lead to them), which jeopardize a woman’s ability to have children or fulfill her function as an infant’s principal caregiver and meal provider. Women instead engage in “indirect aggression” to “reduce the mate value of a rival,” like by “disparaging the competitor’s appearance … or using derisive body and facial gestures to make the rival feel badly about herself and thus less willing to compete.”  (Yeah, that’s right. It seems “Mean Girls” was a documentary.)  The tricky thing about  these indirect attacks is the plausible deniability they confer. Call a woman out for thin-shaming you and she’s likely to duck behind “I’m just worried about your health!” So instead, simply tell her that remarks about your weight hurt your feelings. Speaking up like this says that you aren’t likely to let any future digs slide, yet you remain on

moral high ground—instead of giving back in kind: “Wow, looks like you’ve been exercising a lot. Do you do the backstroke in frosting?”

You Had Me At Hell I’m a married gay man, and I hate my in-laws. They were disgustingly abusive to my husband when he was a child. They’re in failing health now, and it’s important to him to visit them a couple of times a year. How do I get through these mandatory trips? ­—Dreading It It’s probably tempting to buy his family the sort of classic furniture you think they deserve. Unfortunately, they only ship that model of chair to prisons with a death row. There is actually opportunity within this biannual awfulness you two have to go through. In the movAmy Alkon ies, people show their love through grand gestures: “We’ll always have Paris!” In real life, according to psychologist John Gottman’s research, the strongest, happiest relationships are made up of constant mundane little loving interactions: “You were so sweet to me in Costco.”  Gottman finds that the key determinant in whether a relationship succeeds or fails is the ability to trust one’s partner. This means not just trusting that they won’t cheat but trusting that they’ll continually make you and your needs a priority, on a moment-bymoment basis. For example, as Gottman puts it: “Can I trust you to be there and listen to me when I’m upset? … To choose me over your mother, over your friends? … To help with things in the house? To really be involved with our children?” So, though you can’t undo the past, when you’re on one of these visits, you can shift your focus from hating your in-laws to showing your love for your husband. Listen. Tell him, “I know this is really hard for you.” Hug him. Rub his feet. Once you’re out of the inlaw inferno, you might discuss trying to make a habit of this sort of thing—really being present for each other in the numerous “unimportant” moments of life. This will keep you from being one of those couples frantically trying to plug gaping holes in their relationship with extravagant gestures. Typically, these are ultimately futile—too little, too late—and tend to not come off as planned. For example, if you’re having 150 doves released over you as you renew your vows, you’d better see that they’re all wearing tiny gold lamé diapers.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Now is a favorable time to worship at the shrine of your own intuition. It’s a ripe moment to boost your faith in your intuition’s wild and holy powers. To an extraordinary degree, you can harness this alternate mode of intelligence to gather insights that are beyond the power of your rational mind to access by itself. So be bold about calling on your gut wisdom, Gemini. Use it to track down the tricky, elusive truths that have previously been unavailable to you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): “A poem is never finished; it is only abandoned,” wrote poet W. H. Auden, paraphrasing poet Paul Valéry. I think the same can be said about many other kinds of work. We may wish we could continue tinkering and refining forever so as to bring a beloved project to a state of absolute perfection. But what’s more likely is that it will always fall at least a bit short of that ideal. It will never be totally polished and complete to our satisfaction. And we’ve got to accept that. I suggest you meditate on these ideas in the coming weeks, Cancerian. Paradoxically, they may help you be content with how you finish up the current phase of your beloved project.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I highly recommend that you spend the next three weeks hanging out on a beach every day, dividing your time between playing games with friends, sipping cool drinks, reading books you’ve always wanted to read, and floating dreamily in warm water. To indulge in this relaxing extravaganza would be in maximum alignment with the current cosmic rhythms. If you can’t manage such a luxurious break from routine, please at least give yourself the gift of some other form of recreation that will renew and refresh you all the way down to the core of your destiny. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Contemporaries of the ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras told colorful stories about the man. Some believed he was the son of a god and that one of his thighs was made of gold. When he crossed the Casas River, numerous witnesses testified that the river called out his name and welcomed him. Once a snake bit him, but he suffered no injury, and killed the snake by biting it in return. On another occasion, Pythagoras supposedly coaxed a dangerous bear to stop committing violent acts. These are the kinds of legends I expect you to spread about yourself in the coming days, Virgo. It’s time to boost your reputation to a higher level. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): My counsel may seem extreme, but I really think you should avoid mildness and meekness and modesty. For the immediate future, you have a mandate to roar and cavort and exult. It’s your sacred duty to be daring and experimental and exploratory. The cosmos and I want to enjoy the show as you act like you have the right to express your soul’s code with brazen confidence and unabashed freedom. The cosmos and I want to squeal with joy as you reveal raw truths in the most emotionally intelligent ways possible.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): French novelist Honoré Balzac periodically endured intense outbreaks of creativity. “Sometimes it seems that my brain is on fire,” he testified after a 26-day spell when he never left his writing room. I’m not pre-

dicting anything quite as manic as that for you, Scorpio. But I do suspect you will soon be blessed (and maybe a tiny bit cursed) by a prolonged bout of fervent inspiration. To ensure that you make the best use of this challenging gift, get clear about how you want it to work for you. Don’t let it boss you. Be its boss.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Ancient civilizations waged war constantly. From Mesopotamia to China to Africa, groups of people rarely went very long without fighting other groups of people. There was one exception: the Harappan culture that thrived for about 2,000 years in the Indus River Valley, which in the present day stretches through Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. Archaeologists have found little evidence of warfare there. Signs of mass destruction and heavy armaments are non-existent. Art from that era and area does not depict military conflict. One conclusion we might be tempted to draw from this data is that human beings are *not* inherently combative and violent. In any case, I want to use the Harappan civilization’s extended time of peace as a metaphor for your life in the next eight weeks. I believe (and hope!) you’re entering into a phase of very low conflict.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Every human being I’ve ever known, me included, has to wage a continuous struggle between these pairs of opposites: 1. bad habits that waste their vitality and good habits that harness their vitality; 2. demoralizing addictions that keep them enslaved to the past and invigorating addictions that inspire them to create their best possible future. How’s your own struggle going? I suspect you’re in the midst of a turning point. Here’s a tip that could prove useful: Feeding the good habits and invigorating addictions may cause the bad habits and demoralizing addictions to lose some of their power over you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Some books seem like a key to unfamiliar rooms in one’s own castle,” said author Franz Kafka. I suspect this idea will be especially relevant to you in the coming weeks, Aquarius. And more than that: In addition to books, other influences may also serve as keys to unfamiliar rooms in your inner castle. Certain people, for instance, may do and say things that give you access to secrets you’ve been keeping from yourself. A new song or natural wonderland may open doors to understandings that will transform your relationship with yourself. To prep you for these epiphanies, I’ll ask you to imagine having a dream at night in which you’re wandering through a house you know very well. But this time, you discover there’s a whole new wing of the place that you never knew existed.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Just for now, let’s say it’s fine to fuel yourself with comfort food and sweet diversions. Let’s proceed on the hypothesis that the guardians of your future want you to treat yourself like a beloved animal who needs extra love and attention. So go right ahead and spend a whole day (or two) in bed reading and ruminating and listening to soul-beguiling music. Take a tour through your favorite memories. Move extra slowly. Do whatever makes you feel most stable and secure. Imagine you’re like a battery in the process of getting recharged.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The Aries poet Anna Kamieńska described the process of writing as akin to “the backbreaking work of hacking a footpath, as in a coal mine; in total darkness, beneath the earth.” Whether or not you’re a writer, I’m guessing that your life might have felt like that recently. Your progress has been slow and the mood has been dense and the light has been dim. That’s the tough news. The good news is that I suspect you will soon be blessed with flashes of illumination and a semi-divine intervention or two. After that, your work will proceed with more ease. The mood will be softer and brighter.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do you know what you are worth? Have you compiled a realistic assessment of your talents, powers, and capacities? Not what your friends and enemies think you’re worth, nor the authority figures you deal with, nor the bad listeners who act like they’ve figured out the game of life. When I ask you if you have an objective understanding of your real value, Taurus, I’m not referring to what your illusions or fears or wishes might tell you. I’m talking about an honest, accurate appraisal of the gifts you have to offer the world. If you do indeed possess this insight, hallelujah and congratulations! If you don’t, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to work on getting it.

A Plant-Based Roadmap to Better Health Over the course of 6 weeks, you will be

eing an immigrant in the U.S. right now isn’t easy—never mind being an undocumented immigrant, concerning a whole different level of difficulty, on a multitude of levels. Simply being someone here from a different country has challenges that most of us who were born here will never consider, much less face. But as a country comprised of people whose ancestors were once very undocumented and—understatement of the year alert—didn’t treat native people great, the manner in which we treat all people who have chosen to make a new life here should be held to a high standard. Speaking of high, it’s (perhaps) fairly common knowledge that if you are undocumented, using cannabis is a bad idea, as it can be grounds for deportation. And as the President has demonstrated, removing undocumented immigrants makes him very happy. For those with the resources to apply and obtain a green card and who are working toward citizenship, that’s not an issue, as lawful permanent residents are generally subject to the same criminal laws as citizens. It would stand to reason that includes partaking in cannabis, or working in the rapidly expanding cannabis industry, right? Much like the haircut I sported through hair school, that is very wrong. The basis for this resides in state versus federal cannabis laws. Although 29 states and the District of Columbia have medical cannabis programs, and nine states and D.C have recreational cannabis programs, cannabis remains illegal at the federal level. As such, the feds view cannabis use as unacceptable for any reason. As all immigration law is federal law, non-citizens need to avoid using, possessing or growing cannabis. That’s especially important, because even though the Obama administration took steps to prevent the feds from going after citizens who were using or growing cannabis or working in cannabis industries, current Attorney General Jeff Sessions made it a priority to go after all non-citizens violating any state or federal crimes. Because Sessions hates people of color, and the Wall thing. How common is it for the feds to deport someone for simple cannabis possession? The most recent reliable numbers I found show that in 2013, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported 6,770 individuals for simple possession of cannabis, making it the 4th most common criminal reason for deportation. But it’s more than just simple possession. Growing, sharing, or working in the industry can result in being deported or permanently barred from re-entering the U.S., because it’s considered drug trafficking. That doesn’t just mean growing, trimming or selling cannabis. A non-citizen working as an accountant with a cannabis industry client also risks permanent banishment. Even the

spouse of said accountant could face banishment, as they could be considered benefiting financially from cannabis money. The Immigration Legal Resource Center issued an advisory paper which instructs noncitizens to avoid anything to do with cannabis, including: • Don’t use marijuana until you are a U.S. citizen. Don’t work in the marijuana industry. (Don’t benefit in any form from any non-citizen working in the industry.) • If you have a real medical need and there is no good substitute for medical marijuana, get legal counsel first. • Never leave the house carrying marijuana, a medical marijuana card, paraphernalia (like a pipe), or accessories like marijuana T-shirts or stickers. Don’t have photos or texts about you and marijuana on your phone, Facebook, or anywhere else. (ICE is checking your social media for proof you use marijuana.) • Never discuss marijuana use or possession with any immigration or border official, unless you have expert legal advice that this is OK. Some immigration officers are asking noncitizens if they have ever used marijuana– especially in some states that have legalized marijuana. (This is especially important at the Washington/Canada border.) Even old offenses can cause problems, since there’s no statute of limitations on deportation. Even an expungement won’t fix the problem in most cases. Any non-citizen with a criminal history or with pending charges needs to be careful about their immigration status. Oregon and Washington have organizations that help criminal defense counsel figure out these problems. In Washington: Washington Defender’s Association Immigration Project In Oregon: Oregon Justice Resource Center Immigrant Rights Project - ojrc. info/immigrantrightsproject/ Both groups work with defense counsel representing non-citizen defendants at the pre-plea stage to explain how the charges will affect their client’s immigration status, and how to minimize the consequences. Neither WDIP nor OJRC IRP work directly with clients.
