THREE DAYS OF CRAFT BEER BLISS ON THE BANKS OF THE DESCHUTES RIVER


OPINION Letters

Now we’re thinking about buying a second home in the Bend area, but we won’t know until November whether that’s a good idea or not. We’re old enough to not need jobs but wise enough to know we want to live among people who pay attention to what’s best for their community. While in the area we learned that Deschutes County has the opportunity to vote for change in their troubled Sheriff ’s Department. It’s apparently the first time in two decades that the incumbent hasn’t been alone on the ballot, appointed by his predecessor regardless of his nefarious ties. We also heard about tax Initiative 28, which basically amounts to a disguised sales tax. We hope voters pay attention to their opportunity to vote against higher taxes and for new leadership in the Sheriff ’s department. Then we’ll decide whether or not to re-locate.

—Christie Gorsline

RECENT DEATHS IN THE BLACK AND POLICE COMMUNITIES In the wake of recent tragedies surrounding the lives lost in Black and police communities, I have written the following poem, reflecting my perspective on these issues. I would deeply appreciate the opportunity to share these thoughts with the local community. Living, Breathing, Grieving My heart aches for the people who have died.

Or pass on the street

I grieve for my brother, whose “one of them” and the spotlight he’s had on him Since the moment he was sworn in I grieve for my children, still a figment of my imagination But this will be their world one day And I’m embarrassed to say It’s not ready yet for their innocence. I’m not ready yet to witness their pain As they learn that people like us die fast. People who look like me are hated. And misunderstood. When someone else plays the music of their people, it’s to listen But when I play the music of my people, it makes a statement. The way soulful sounds move my ear drum and my heart Reminds me there’s Blackness in my veins The way the hair grows out of my head in curls and waves Is further proof of my Blackness As if I need some. The way the music of my people is casually referred to as “garbage” The way I hesitate when the hair dresser asks where my hair really “comes from” Is proof that it’s not safe to be flippant about flaunting Blackness. In this way, I’m one of the lucky ones, Whose Blackness is assumed nonexistent on one hand or questioned on the other. I don’t look like my father. I don’t look like my mother.

People who look like my father. People who could just as well be an uncle, a cousin, or a brother.

But look how far we’ve come! My very existence was once illegal, but I’m here now!

I’m not sure why I’m affected by these losses more than the others.

Living, breathing, grieving.

—Marie Duff

No doubt, there have been many others. Like an arm being twisted, there’s a moment where it’s not so bad. Arms get twisted sometimes. That’s just the way it is. This pain won’t last forever. But then the pain continues. And you hope to God the inflictor of your agony grants you mercy When you cry “Uncle.” So today I grieve the deaths of those whose cries weren’t answered. Today, like many others, I realize too many of my people have died.

LIGHTMETER

Until you heard the thoughtful warmth of his greeting a perfect stranger

It’s hard to avoid discussions of politics when people like me were once banned politically.

But I do know that it hurts now.

As a native Oregonian, I’ve always known that the Bend community was a dynamic, sun-filled recreational community as well as a growing economic environment. On a recent vacation, we explored the Lava Cave, walked the Lava Cast Forest loop, floated the river and played golf at nine different courses. We were blown away by the growth, delighted by the La Pine Rodeo and attended the best concert ever by Grammy award artists, Lonestar.

I grieve for my brother, who you might think twice to sit by

OPEN LETTER TO BEND Men crossed and ocean, time and time again to colonize, build and “improve” life in countries never seen by the royal crown. They fueled themselves with what we now have come to know and love as IPA. The all too proverbial writing is on the wall in Bend, the colonial nectar that has crossed oceans; paving way for historical atrocities has now settled in the dregs of a town, a town where the tears of the displaced and unwanted are not even dried by the time the next wave of ambiguous named restaurants and housing developments are built up. The vail of Bend has not only been lifted, but the face

In fact we throw parties to changes rives. Yes, parties—if only Gatsby had Chacos and a tin cup, green light replaced with the newest and greatest 8 million lumen, blind your grandmother kind of light strapped on a bike worth more than your servers monthly income. Its progress they say; I mean now I can MOD my pizza. “Yes please may I have some more east’west separation on that pie?” My pepperoni really doesn’t go well with the pig it came from. Are you still with me or should I slow down? Because unlike that fermented secret your are running from I am still here, boots tightly perched in the crap sauna behind your next rental. Grit, fingerless, logs to work, alpine exploration flips real quick to forced smiles. “Yes sir here is your flight, from left to right you can really taste the baggy eyes of collars long forgotten.” To many metaphors? Maybe that eight ball floating between your sons eyes needs to finally find its corner pocket. Right right, black and white keep it simple. The exceptional growth, vacation rentals, divided communities, bathed in the intoxication blender is hurting innocent men and women, and your pseudo-superficial community “involvement” is a waning moon; boo boo (that a Kendrick shout out). I’ll type faster than any Ted talk; hop scotching through vagueness, so hop on the saddle and let’s take a gentrified ride. Remember the asbestos filled air when they tore down the crane shed in the early morning hours, remember when free donut day at rays; of course you don’t, you were busy crunching numbers on that square you call an investment. Remember that somos iguales and every kid deserves to smile with Healy on a Saturday, or was that Spanish from Cancun a

bit rusty. Slap it on your counter; best not forget. Had to sneak that in there, because if your can bring the wave; you can put children in the mountains K-12. And you can do this in a yellow bus, Audi need not apply. So tap it, slap it, and flip and retire; that’s the goal right? I guess we will just pick up the pieces, Sincerely the joint smoking teenager, who grew up but still has the sunset on the pond.

or the citizens of Bend, Troy Field has become a de-facto park. Soccer teams practice there, local residents exercise their dogs there, and community members gather there for picnics and potlucks. It is a major urban open space in downtown Bend and for children who live nearby, the only place to run and play that doesn’t require crossing busy downtown streets.

it to somebody that’s going to preserve green open space in this neighborhood.”

Despite the fact that it looks like a park, acts like a park, and gets used like a park, it is not, in fact, a park. It is simply a fenced field owned by Bend LaPine School District, which doesn’t really want it. The local daily paper has suggested selling the valuable real estate to the highest bidder to help plug budget holes for local schools, and a Portland developer offered to buy it for $1.9 million, contingent on the removal of the "public facilities" designation for the property. Responding to opposition from local citizens who want to preserve open space in downtown Bend, the City Council decided to maintain the designation, and the deal recently fell through.

During the intervening year and a half, our position has not changed. What has changed is the fact that the City Council and the community have expressed a strong desire to keep Troy Field as an open urban space for community use. However, there is still no overall, strategic plan regarding the future of Troy Field, Mirror Pond, and downtown Bend in general.

The Save Troy Field folks can claim temporary victory, but the school district still needs to sell the land, according to School Board Chair Nori Juba, who told KTVZ news, “We need to maintain, upgrade and preserve our assets. The school board is still looking at how to do that and obviously selling an asset, a piece of property we don’t have a need for, is obviously a way to get there. I think our first choice is to sell

As we said in our January 2015 editorial, we can’t fault the school district for seeking more money for schools, and we can’t fault neighbors for wanting to preserve what little open space is left in the downtown area. But we are concerned about the piecemeal approach to the overall planning for downtown Bend.

The fact that the Troy Field deal is off the table gives us time to start a community conversation about the best way to move forward. Bend Parks and Rec could serve as a catalyst for that discussion by including Troy Field as a goal in its Parks, Recreation, and Green Spaces Comprehensive Plan. In October of 2015, Parks and Rec indicated that it had no current or future interest in acquiring Troy Field, as it was too small to be designated a neighborhood park, too expensive, and the service area it is located in was not identified as an underserved area. Considering the groundswell of support from park district residents, we hope it will reconsider this position. SW

Local teen traveling to Trinidad and Tobago with Bend Area Habitat for Humanity

en years ago, Kaci Jo Alderin’s family was able to purchase a home with assistance from Bend Area Habitat for Humanity. Now she is raising money so she can travel to Trinidad & Tobago this fall to help another family achieve the same goal. When Sophie Paez, ReStore executive director and a friend, first suggested a service trip, Alderin was 14 and too young to qualify. “Though I wasn’t old enough yet, I really wanted to give another family the opportunity to own a home. We are pretty lucky to live here in Bend and there are many who don’t have the same luxuries we do.”

Lane, who owns Tambi Lane Photography, discovered Habitat just after moving to Bend in 2003. She reflects, “My living situation was not ideal, and I hoped to find a stable home I could afford for my two kids. I thought it was a long shot, but at that point I had nothing else to lose, so I went through the extensive application process, put the earliest date on the calendar, and hoped for the best.” She was working three jobs at the time. When Lane learned that her family qualified for aid for a home, she remembers, “I was absolutely beside myself. A lot of people think homes are given, but in fact each family has to work hard. I personally completed a minimum of 400 hours of sweat equity over two years, participated in an IDA (Individual Development Account) savings program, and I have a mortgage just like everyone else.” She and Alderin continue to make home improvements. Lane says, “When you’re the one who installed the drywall, you learn to take a lot of pride in your home.” Now 16, Alderin is ecstatic to give back by participating in the Bend Area Habitat for Humanity Global Village trip set for early November. The team, led by local Habitat Family Services Manager

When she and her mother, Tambi Lane, moved into their Bend Area Habitat home, Alderin says, “Just having turned six years old, I don’t remember much. I do remember finally getting my own room and knowing we would be able to stay at this house as long as we wanted. Most of my childhood memories are living in this house. My mom worked hard to make it our home.”

Alderin, who is working this summer at Camp Sherman’s Kokanee Cafe, has raised $670 toward the $1,800 required for the trip.

to serve and build homes for low income people in foreign countries,” notes Cooper Engle. “We look for people who understand our trips are not vacations but an opportunity to make a difference outside our own country. The trips are filled with wonderful cultural and culinary experiences. At 18, I had my first in-country mission trip. It was eye-opening and will forever remain a defining experience.” Alderin is thankful to everyone who has contributed - or will contribute - to her trip. She hopes this is just the start of travel, experiencing new cultures, helping others in need, and getting a better perspective on her own life in the context of the rest of the world. She is accepting donations via a GoFundMe campaign at funds.gofundme.com/trinidadtobago. The Armature will also host a benefit concert with a $5 cover on Aug. 12 featuring Moon Room, Gonzo, and Two Dollar Bill.

All five of these European nations would fit inside Oregon at the same time, with room to spare.

We’re Number 16! Bend is accustomed to making all kinds of “Best Place To” lists: best place to retire, drink craft beer, play golf, play outside, or just plain live. But our little drinking town with a mountain problem didn’t even make the top 10 list of the Most Successful Cities in Oregon. Online career-finding platform Zippia.com analyzed every city in Oregon with more than 5,000 people, looking at poverty level, median household income, and unemployment rates. After collecting the data, they ranked each of the 76 towns from 1 to 76 for each of the criteria (with 1 being most successful), and averaged the rankings to create a “Success Score.” The lower the “Success Score,” the more successful the city. According to Zippia’s analysis, these are Oregon’s 10 most successful cities: 1. Happy Valley 2. Sherwood 3. West Linn 4. Lake Oswego 5. Damascus 6. Sandy 7. Tigard 8. Hillsboro 9. Wilsonville 10. Tualatin Oregon’s Most Successful City, Happy Valley (population 15,693), has a median income of $100,438, a poverty level of 4 percent and an unemployment rate of 7.5 percent. Bend ranks 16th, with a median income of $52,471, a poverty level of 13.5 percent and an unemployment rate of 8.3 percent.

Which Countries Would Fit Inside Oregon? Of all the ways to measure a state, the one suggested by SelfStorage.com may be the most entertaining yet. The online platform—sort of an AirBnB for local storage units—recently asked, “If Oregon were a storage unit, what countries would fit inside it?” Not content to simply list the countries, they created clever infographics to illustrate their findings.

According to their measurements, the Beaver State, at 98,378 square miles, could contain the United Kingdom, at 93,628 square miles. Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands, Slovenia, and Switzerland could all sleep over at the same time, with room to spare. Greece could almost squeeze in twice, and the country closest in size to Oregon—Guinea—just fits. To explore the full list with overlaid maps of countries that would fit inside Oregon, visit selfstorage.com/self-storage/oregon.

Dogs vs. Humans: Who would Northwesterners help? According to a recent poll conducted by Pemco Insurance, 71 percent percent of Oregon and Washington residents surveyed say they would be very likely or extremely likely to take action to rescue a dog trapped in a car. But only 58 percent said they would help a driver stalled on the side of the road by stopping or calling 911. In fact, 29 percent of Northwesterners surveyed said they would be more likely to cruise past without attempting to help a fellow human being.

YOUR LOCAL EXPERT ON PLUMBING, ELECTRICAL & IRRIGATION!

Of those indicating a reluctance to help, 65 percent cited personal safety as their biggest concern. In the case of a dog trapped in a vehicle, 90 percent said they would call the police, find the driver, or break a car’s window because intervening is the “right thing to do.” “It’s interesting to learn what motivates the ‘good Samaritan’ in all of us,” said PEMCO Spokesperson Derek Wing. “Of course, personal safety always comes first, but looking out for each other might make us all a little safer on the roads and at home, regardless of whether those we help have four legs or two.” He continued, “A common theme we saw in the poll was the notion that respondents might not act because they figured someone else would handle the situation, or they assumed the situation was already resolved. It makes us wonder if drivers would feel the same way if the tables were turned and they were the one in need.” The complete poll results are available online at pemco.com/poll. SW

TOO MANY TOURISTS? Bend grapples with the seasonal influx of visitors By Christian Trejbal

Bryce, a freelance writer, wrote about walking along the Deschutes River that morning, about how she’d found garbage left over from the previous night’s revelries washed up on the shore at McKay Park, about how her community was losing something as more and more people kept coming. She dared to suggest that Bend needs to have a serious conversation about tourism. Her headline: “Bend is being loved to death—and it’s my fault.”

> A RECORD SUMMER The sense that Bend has more visitors than ever is no illusion. Visit Bend, the city’s primary tourism promotion organization, commissioned a study of how many people visited in 2015. It estimated that 2.5 to 3 million visitors came and stayed an average of 2.4 days. That works out to 6 to 7.25 million visitor nights over the year. To put that in perspective, almost 20,000 people visited Bend every day of the year on average. Bend’s resident population is only about 87,000 people. The busiest season is summer, and this year has been especially strong for tourism. Tawna Fenske, Visit Bend’s commu-

from the current system would likely oppose it.

Visit Bend President Kevney Dugan suggested that if more tourists come, the lodging industry would likely build more rooms. “Hotel developers see an opportunity,” he said.

“Tourists have a significant impact on local law enforcement, and there are no resources to alleviate this. It results in Deschutes County residents experiencing a lower level of service,” Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel said.

VOLUME 20 ISSUE 29 / July 21, 2016 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

W

hen Katy Bryce sat down on the front porch of her west side Bend home last month to write a blog post, she didn’t know that she was about to voice the frustrations of thousands of local residents.

Spokespeople for Visit Bend, Central Oregon Visitors Association and Travel Oregon, the three main organizations that promote Bend and Central Oregon tourism, all declined to say if any number of tourists would be too many. They have no plans to dial back their marketing, especially of the shoulder seasons. Travel Oregon, at least, acknowledged that there are some times to stop promoting particular destinations. “I don’t think we’d ever say there’s too much tourism, but we do have to be careful to protect our gems and natural resource areas,” said Allison Keeney, communications manager for Travel Oregon. She cited Smith Rock State Park as an example. After state park officials said that there were so many hikers and rock climbers that they threatened the natural integrity of the park, state tourism promoters stopped marketing it. > HIDDEN COSTS The cost of tourism is more than trash and pressure on natural resources. More traffic means more wear and tear on roads. More people drinking or smoking marijuana means more burden on local law enforcement when drunk or high people get behind the wheel or cause other trouble.

The post went viral locally. It received 132 comments on Bryce’s site and was shared more than 5,000 times on Facebook, far more than any other post she’d put up before. “I’ve had strangers come up to me on the street and recognize me,” she said. Bryce doesn’t hate tourists. But she and many local residents are feeling the squeeze this summer as more people than ever visit this no-longer-secret corner of the world.

nications manager, predicts it will be a record-breaking summer season. Residents accustomed to a slower, less-crowded pace are feeling the crunch. It’s almost impossible to hike a favorite trail in peaceful isolation. Floating the Deschutes on a hot day feels like bumper cars. Restaurants don’t have open tables. Roads are congested. Parking spaces are full.

Tourists do not directly pay for those things, not like locals. Everyone pays state taxes on gas, on liquor, on marijuana and cigarettes, even tourists. But when the state gets around to sending a portion of those taxes back to localities, they do it on a per capita basis. For example, Bend this year will receive an estimated $14.86 per local resident in liquor tax revenue and $57.47 in gas tax. The formula does not account for tourists. As a result, communities with a lot of visitors wind up shortchanged.

“When is too much too much?” Bryce asked. “Is there a tipping point?”

“There’s an impact on our natural resources. The recreation that people come here to do, that we move here to do, are all being affected,” Bryce said.

Even though visitors to Bend pay those taxes, the money goes into a big pot that the state divvies up based on resident population. As a result, Bend’s tourism subsidizes services in other Oregon communities.

That question has even landed on City Club of Central Oregon’s radar. The club’s Aug. 18 forum has the wordplay-heavy title: “Tourism or Tourisn’t: Is the juice of a tourist economy worth the squeeze?”

The city has about 3,500 hotel and motel rooms. Last year, visitors nearly filled them all in July, when occupancy was at 90 percent of capacity. Those figures don’t account for the 654 active shortterm rental licenses on file with the City,

At least the marijuana tax will change next year. Per capita distribution will switch to a formula based on how many licensed retailers there are. Changing the other allocations would require action in Salem, and communities that benefit

According to data on criminal charges provided by Hummel’s office, the share of crimes in the community committed by people from out of town has increased in recent years. Disorderly conduct in particular has seen a marked increase, going from visitors being 7 percent of charged cases in 2013 to 19 percent so far this year. > TOURISTS PAY IN OTHER WAYS That’s not to say that tourists pay nothing to support the infrastructure they enjoy while visiting. Bend, Deschutes County and Oregon all charge Transient Room Taxes (TRTs). In Bend, the tax is 10.4 percent for the city plus 1.8 percent for the state. Lodging outside the city limits falls under county taxes. Visit Bend and other organizations rely on the TRT as a key metric. Unlike the estimates of actual visitors and nights stayed, the TRT offers concrete data about how much tax visitors pay. The TRT has rebounded since the tourism industry tanked during the recession. During the 2014-15 fiscal year, visitors paid $6.5 million in city TRT. If this year remained on pace, Bend’s TRT revenue could top $7.5 million. Under state law, 35 percent of that money goes to tourism promotion, and most of that funds Visit Bend. The remaining 65 cents on the dollar goes to Bend’s general fund. “Those are real dollars that the city uses to pay for streets, to pay for police, to pay for fire,” said Bend Economic Development Director Carolyn Eagan. This year, a good chunk of it is going to pay for street maintenance after voters rejected a gas tax in March. City Council would like to hold onto an even bigger slice so tourists pay more for their impact on roads, but the lodging industry is resisting that move. Discussions are ongoing, according to Visit Bend. TRT aside, it’s no secret that tourism is a huge economic driver. Summers are so strong that Visit Bend doesn’t market that season much. Instead, it focuses on the shoulder seasons and winter. They target specific markets, primarily Portland, Seattle and the San Francisco Bay area. ...Continues on page 12

director, said that nearly 20 percent of summer employment is in leisure and hospitality. “We aren’t relying on tourism for all of our future jobs, but tourism will always be a part of the economy here in Bend,” she said. > RESPECT FOR BEND

In her original blog post, Bryce suggested change must come from both the top and the bottom if the community is to find a sustainable model. Tourism can be a vibrant part of the economy without trashing the things that make Bend a special place to live and visit.

Most of Bend’s visitors don’t travel far to get here. In 2013, the most recent survey year, Oregonians accounted for 37 percent of all visitors. California (18 percent) and Washington (15 percent) were the other popular states of origin. No other state accounted for more than 2.5 percent of visitors. Stephanie Tarntino and her husband visit Bend from Portland a few times per year. Sometimes they stay with her brother, a Bend resident, and sometimes in a hotel. They, like many who visit, come for the abundant outdoor activities and good restaurants.

The increasing number of tourists has not diminished their enjoyment. “The only times I’ve noticed there were a lot of people around was when we happened to go on a weekend when something else was happening, like high school graduation,” she said. Tourism is a large driver of the local economy. A state study on tourism’s economic impact estimated that visitors spent $660 million in Deschutes County in 2015 and were responsible for 6,680 full- and part-time jobs. Eagan, the city’s economic development

“I don’t have the answer, but acknowledging the challenge is the first step,” she said. “We all talk about it behind closed doors, and no one is willing to do anything about it because we’re all scared what it will mean to the economy.” She suggested that residents can go the extra step to make sure people they invite to town understand the Bend way. And when the rude people do show up, exercise patience and do little things to help. When she found the trash by the river, she returned with garbage bags to clean it up. “We need all people to do their part, locals and tourists. We also need community leaders and government officials to make changes to make this place more sustainable,” Bryce said. “All of the

problems such as litter, traffic and things, I don’t want to attribute just to tourism. There are plenty of locals who do those things, too.” Local tourism promoters say they must deal with these challenges before Bend loses the very things that draw people here to visit. Visit Bend and the Central Oregon Visitors Association (COVA) have been developing strategies to improve the tourism experience. “We’ve been discussing how we can develop programs to engage and educate both visitors and residents in a sustainable and responsible commitment to the outdoor lifestyle brand of Bend and Central Oregon,” said Alana Hughson, COVA’s CEO. They’ve reached out for help and ideas to community partners such as the Deschutes Land Trust and Oregon Natural Desert Association. “As we have this influx of people, whether it’s a tourist or a new resident, it doesn’t matter why or how they are coming. Is there a better way we can engage with them about maintaining and respecting the Bend lifestyle and Bend culture,” asked Visit Bend’s Dugan. The working name for their initiative is “Visit like a local.” “People don’t want to come to a location and feel like they stand out. They want to feel like they fit in,” Dugan said. SW

Three-Part Perfection

The Wailin’ Jennys come to the Tower By Jared Rasic 15

The Canadian group started in 2002 when a guitar shop in Winnipeg brought Moody, Mehta, and Cara Luft together for a one-off performance. The three were already established singer/songwriters in Canada and the show was supposed to be one-night-only, but the night was so well-received they became a super group overnight. The group released its American debut LP, “40 Days,” in 2004, featuring songs written by each member of the trio, some traditional tunes, and covers of Neil Young and John Hiatt. Cara Luft left the band before their sophomore release, “Firecracker,” in 2006. Annabelle Chvostek joined the group, bringing an edgy alto tone to Moody’s elegant soprano and Mehta’s exquisite mezzo and beautiful guitar. In 2009 the group released its first live album, “Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera

House,” which was recorded over one performance instead of an entire tour. Chvostek left the group, and the band’s current lineup was solidified with the addition of Masse as their third alto (plus killer bassist) and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Penner as a sideman. “Bright Morning Stars” from 2011 is The Jennys’ latest album, and it is good enough to make the wait for their next one even more difficult. The sound is fuller, the harmonies more layered, and it is arguably the best record of their

career so far. We interviewed Ruth Moody recently about life and music: Source Weekly: Is there an aspect of musicianship you find the most rewarding? Ruth Moody: I like it all. There are definite challenges to being on the road all the time, but there is nothing like connecting with an audience. It’s a really special thing to be able to sing your songs for people who are open and listening

RM: Three-part harmony is the signature theme. We play acoustic folk music with influences from all sorts of genres and traditions: bluegrass, old-time, Celtic, country. There are a lot of instruments, too—guitars, banjo, ukulele, accordion, bodhrán, harmonica, bass, drums. My brother plays viola, fiddle and mandolin, and Adam plays electric guitar. The songs are generally serious and we write and sing from the heart, but we have a lot of fun up there, and tell stories. SW: What do you hope your music brings to people’s consciousness? RM: I think all three of us would like to think we are making some kind of difference in this crazy world. Singing and songs can be a powerful and healing thing. And I think there is something profound, even spiritual, about three-part harmony that can be uplifting for people, and help them feel connected.

Spiritual Landscapes Rusted Root is on its way By Jared Rasic

R

usted Root came together in Pittsburgh, Pa., in the early 1990s when front man Michael Glabicki dropped out of college to start a band. Their 1992 indie release “Cruel Sun” became their opening salvo into the music scene, combining an acoustic jam band style with socially conscious world music. From 1994 to 2009 the band released another five albums, opting not to fix what wasn’t broken. Their sound remained stylistically similar, with Glabicki’s plaintive wail adding a haunting melancholy to even the happiest tunes. "The Movement" (2012) brought back the multi-layered percussion and is easily their best record since “When I Woke.” Glabicki’s voice soars through the record, finding joy and hope in some very dark places.

We spoke to Glabicki recently about touring, spirituality and Oneness: Source Weekly: How has the tour been so far? Do you find much difference between the East Coast/West Coast legs of the tour in regard to the audience? Michael Glabicki: The tour has been going great! The audience is loving our new songs. The crowds feel the same to me from east to west. We have reached a high level of spiritual connectedness with our music and with the audience. At this point it is all about what makes us all one. SW: Do you like the big festivals, or do you prefer small venues? MG: I like them both but the more intimate the better for me SW: What kind of experience is it for people to see Rusted Root live who

to you?

MG: I guess a great and perhaps life altering experience. Other than that they should expect that it’s going to be different than any other show of ours. We change up the music and go with the energy of the audience, so it is more of a communal experience. Anything can happen at that point.

MG: I think music speaks in the realms of the spiritual landscapes. One of the ways that we can experience that true reality is through music. We can truly understand our oneness. SW

he Wailin’ Jennys sound like peace. Heather Masse, Nicky Mehta, and Ruth Moody’s distinctly different voices blend together so flawlessly that they create a seamless whole.

Darren Kling Greg Miller Art Aloft & RE/MAX Balloon I’ll Fly Away 2 From a very young age I've always had a high interest in aviation. I took my first ride in a balloon in 1989 and was introduced to a form of flight far different from anything I had experienced before. In 1993 I received my commercial pilot's license and started Big Sky Balloon Co. providing balloon rides and corporate advertising in Northwest Montana. In 2000, I relocated my business to Portland and have been operating a corporate balloon contract in the Pacific Northwest region. For the past year I've been working on establishing a balloon ride business once again, and am very excited to now offer scenic balloon flights from Central Oregon in my hand painted Art Aloft balloon. Balloons have the unique ability to capture people's imagination and transport them into an environment they've never experienced before. Sharing that experience with people for the first time is what continues to make it a fresh and exciting job for me.

I started crewing in 1990 and ended up buying the balloon I was crewing for in 1995; a year later I received my private license and my commercial license. 1999 was a big year for me. I was honored by my fellow aeronauts as Aeronaut of the Year for all the work I put into forming a new balloon club. The Willamette Aerostat Society Hot Air Balloon club continues to flourish and grow, having added many new members over the years. Also, I was honored when asked to be one of the 60 balloons that participated in the Millennium Countdown held in Boise to ring in the new year. My wife, Janet, and I recently relocated our residence and home port for I’ll Fly Away Balloon Adventures to Prineville, located in beautiful Central Oregon, where we will be offering scenic balloon flights throughout the region. Why you ask? Because the sun shines 300 plus days a year allowing for year round flying. The “I’ll Fly Away 2”—a beautiful balloon with the bottom half all the colors of the NBC Peacock and the top half all black—has made the trip to Balloons Over Bend several times, and we look forward to this year’s event. Come out to the field and say hello to me and be part of the experience. If you are interested in becoming a balloon crew, you can get more information at www.illflyaway.net or call Greg at 503 510-7835.


Balloons Over Bend 2016 / 5

Pilots & Balloons Koh Murai Firenze

My first experience with hot air ballooning was 15 years ago. It then became my passion as I soon realized that it is such an amazing and unique sport. In 1999, I completed my commercial pilot training and began flying in Oregon with my own company. I believe hot air ballooning is not just about flying but the people you encounter and the wonderful experience and memories we create together. During my career as a pilot, I have flown in six states: Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and now California. Currently in Chico, California, I plan to again fly as a business and give back to the community where I grew up. I hope to share the joy and serenity of floating through the air with as many people as I can, hoping to inspire the feeling of freedom and adventure to the hearts of others that it brings to me.

Robert Raper Midlife Crisis I received my commercial certificate in 1996, and bought my first balloon in 1995 while learning to fly. I currently have four balloons and manage my business, High Plains Drifter Hot Air Balloons, LLC. Currently, I am moving from Miles City, Montana and returning to north Bend. I usually attend 7-10 events annually, including Reno and Albuquerque. I fly throughout the western 11 states.

I am predominantly a sport flyer but also provide some instruction. I also enjoy aerostat construction with my first effort an AX-5. One of my other joys in LTA aviation is working on, executing, and helping others with long distance, long duration, and high altitude flights. It has been my pleasure to be the launch master for five world record flights. Yet time spent aloft is still the biggest thrill after all these years. The people you meet and become involved with are also a great reward and asset for participating in this sport. From 1991-1998, I was involved as launch crew, launch master and consultant for several trans-global balloon attempts. These included Earthwinds Hilton, Virgin Global Challenge, ICO Global Challenge and Global Hilton. From 2000–2005, I was involved with scientific balloon and systems design and flight operations for a small private firm supporting various government and university agencies. This work included designs and flights in earth atmosphere, near space and planetary exploration. Since mid-2007 to present, I have also been the engineering consultant and engineer of record for Firefly Balloons.

Doug Adamczyk GEM My interest in ballooning and aviation started at the age of 5 when I lived in Albuquerque. But it was not until I was in high school in Ohio before I had the opportunity to crew for a balloon pilot. That hooked me and I have now been crewing for 30 years. Ten years ago, I received my pilot's license for single engine airplanes. Then in 2013, I jumped at the opportunity to buy a balloon. I received my Lighter Than Air rating one year later. I am currently a member of Northeast Ohio Balloon Pilots Association, the Balloon Federation of America, and also the Pacific Coast Aeronauts. I have flown balloons in four states and participated in multiple balloon festivals in New York, Ohio and Michigan. I moved to California last summer and am enjoying more opportunities to fly because of the better weather.

High Desert Hilarity

The Old Stone Church is up to some hijinks

ART WATCH By Annette Benedetti

"Art of the West" Raises Crucial Funds For High Desert Museum The High Desert Museum’s annual "Art of the West" exhibition and silent auction kicks off July 21 with a free opening reception. The exhibit will display 59 works of art by 38 artists with each piece offering a unique depiction of the Western U.S. Attendees will enjoy a first viewing of the exhibit and the opportunity to purchase a piece of artwork outright before the auction is fully underway.

Stand-up comedians Randy Mendez and Sharon Lacey will roll out their acts at the Old Stone Church Performing Arts Center this Friday and Saturday.

T

he Old Stone Church has been many things over the years; at times, it was actually a church. But for the most part, Bendites know it as a concert venue, stand-up comedy spot, film shoot location and just about any other type of event you can imagine. Recently it has become the Old Stone Performing Arts Center, hosting several concerts and a theatrical production. Now comes a new test: a live comedy series.

headliner, Randy Mendez, combines smart-assed sarcasm with wide-eyed optimism, making him one of Portland’s best comics.

High Desert Hijinks is being billed as an evening of music, mirth and mayhem. Producers Dan Cohen and Howard Schor have a very specific vision in mind. “We’re delivering a whole different format,” says Cohen, who is also master of ceremonies for the event. “What usually happens is they’ll put two comics and an MC out and a bunch of canned music and that’s the show. I think we need more than that. We’ll have some video segments with man on the street stuff. We’ll have live music and a musical segment and we’ll anchor our show with two national touring comedians. We’re really lucky this time because we picked a couple of them that will definitely represent a wide range of comedy.”

Local actor/singer John Kish has been brought in to run the musical aspect of the show. His vision for how to combine the music with the comedians and themes of the night is a strong one. “For me, it’s finding the heart in comedy,” says Kish. “So, making it funny, yes, but also putting some emotional heart in the skits to help vary the show emotionally. Sometimes humor can be found in sadness. Also finding talent who can hold a crowd on their own for 10 minutes and sing confidently is important.”

While some of the hijinks are being saved as a surprise for the performances, both national comedians are excellent choices. Sharon Lacey was a middle school teacher for decades before becoming a comedian. She is the right choice for the inaugural show since her style is so broad that she can basically tailor it to any audience. The other

Bringing in local talent will also be a large part of High Desert Hijinks’ mission. Cohen says, “We’ll supplement the stars with local people so that the show will be a mixture of very good national acts and the very good local talent that we have here in town.”

Cohen is a recent transplant to Bend from Los Angeles, where we was a writer and a filmmaker. He was shocked when he saw the depth and breadth of talent Central Oregon had to offer. Cohen says, “I started looking at talent back in May and I thought, ‘My God, there are so many people that are good, but they’re working karaoke or haven’t quite found an audience.’ There are local comics that are up and coming that could use a 10-minute spot.” Central Oregon has had variety shows

going in the past with Tin Pan Theater’s “Night Light Show” being the most recent example, but something that combines local and national talent is more rare. This could be a platform for comedians, musicians, vocalists and artists who haven’t found the right venue for their work. “There’s a lot of great talent in Bend and there are good comics, but they needed bigger venues,”says Cohen. “So what we want to do, what’s really important, is—instead of them having small groups of people they play to, we want to try and expand to the whole community, just as we want to draw from the whole community. The idea is to bring local filmmaking talent and singing talent and comedians together. Eventually it would be great to have just one star and everyone else from town here.” If High Desert Hijinks finds an audience, the Old Stone Performing Arts Center could become a cross-genre hub for comedy, cabaret, filmmakers, musicians and vocalists. This would create a single roof under which multiple performers of different styles can collaborate. If that’s not the definition of community, I don’t know what is. SW

"Art of the West" will feature a wide array of artistic styles and media including watercolor, oil, pastel, acrylic, mixed media, photography and sculpture. The museum’s executive director, Dana Whitelaw, says the exhibit brings the beauty and diversity of the High Desert to life. “The various artists see this landscape and its inhabitants in such different ways, then translate that point of reference through their art work.” Artists include Charley Griswold, Meg Kahnle, Julie Oriet, Dan Rickards, and Craig Zugar. During the opening reception on July 21, guests will have a chance to meet some of the artists, ask questions, and watch painting demonstrations by local artists Sharon Engel and Norma Holmes, who will use the museum grounds and the Cascade Mountains as inspiration. "Art of the West" culminates on Aug. 2 with the Museum’s signature annual fundraising gala, the High Desert Rendezvous, complete with a live and silent auction. All proceeds from the event support the educational programs at the High Desert Museum, including free teacher trainings and classes designed for schools that focus on environmental and cultural history issues of the region. The Museum’s educational programs reach more than 12,000 area students each year. SW

Britt Orchestra Celebrates National Park Service Anniversary

“Natural History” composition debuts July 29 at Crater Lake

WHO ARE WE? WHERE DID WE COME FROM? WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE? WHAT IS OUR DESTINY?

Music and nature combine to celebrate 100 years of National Parks at Crater Lake, July 29 and 30. At right is composer Michael Gordon. Images via Britt Festival.

E

stablished in 1902, Crater Lake is the fifth oldest national park and Oregon’s only national park. Its stunning blue water has inspired awe in nature enthusiasts, artists, and photographers from all over the world. On July 29, the Britt Orchestra and Music Director Teddy Abrams will introduce music lovers to the majesty of the park with the world premier of Michael Gordon’s composition, “Natural History.” The deep blue waters that fill the caldera of Mount Mazama and form Crater Lake are made solely by rain and snow. With no inflow or outflow at the surface, the water is crystal clear, which is just one of the reasons it is often referred to as one of the most beautiful crater lakes in the world. Surrounded by stunning sheer cliffs that tower almost two thousand feet high, Crater Lake is also the deepest lake in the United States. Inspired by Crater Lake’s beauty and distinctiveness, the Britt Orchestra's performances will be presented as part of the centennial celebration of the U.S. National Park Service. The project was made possible from funding provided by “Imagine Your Parks, a National Endowment for the Arts project that celebrates the 100th anniversary of National Parks. The National Park Service was created in August of 1916 to protect America’s most iconic lands and wildlife, and Crater Lake is a beautiful example of why the service is so important. The performances of "Natural History" will take place over two days and will feature approximately 40 members of the Britt Orchestra; 15 members of Steiger Butte Drum, composed of members of the Klamath Tribes; 30 brass

and percussion students from Southern Oregon University; and a 70-voice regional choir. The Crater Lake Project has captured the attention of regional and national audiences and is drawing attendees from across the nation. Britt Orchestra’s Music Director Teddy Abrams says the goal of the performance is to make sure that the work feels deeply connected to the environment as opposed to simply presenting music in a beautiful place. He says, “For this collaboration, we want to create a work of musical art that truly binds the natural environment and topography of Crater Lake with a musical landscape and experience.” The park’s superintendent, Craig W. Ackerman, says that they have been searching for original ways to showcase Crater Lake for the National Park Service’s Anniversary celebration. He says, “A place-based musical composition will connect the spectacular scenery and resources of the lake with a cultural and artistic heritage that stretches beyond the founding of the park.” He also believes the performances will attract national recognition for the park, the Rogue Valley, and all of southern Oregon. To find inspiration for his composition, Michael Gordon spent time drawing on the living landscape and the ancient lake. He went on tours of the park with Ackerman and Park Historian Stephen Mark, and he even spent a week in the ranger’s house during the winter, using the time to discover the park’s natural sounds. He says, “The idea is to draw out the natural sounds in and around Crater Lake and connect the natural sonic environment to the orchestra.”

The orchestral performances will take place six times over the course of two days. They are free to all park-goers who pay normal park entrance fees. The world premiere performance of "Natural History," slated for 10am on Friday, July 29, is invitation only. The rest of the performances, which will take place on Friday afternoon and evening and throughout Saturday, will be open to the public.

In addition to the "Natural History" performances, Crater Lake park visitors will find individuals and ensembles presenting music at The Watchman Overlook, Phantom Ship Overlook, and Cloudcap Overlook. Seats are limited for free bus transport into the park for the performances, and reservations are required. Attendees should meet at the Thousand Springs Sno Park or Annie Creek Sno Park one hour before performance time, and those using the free bus transport will be returned to the pickup location immediately after each show ends.

I

wasn’t sure what to expect when I heard that a restaurant called “Moose Sisters” had opened in the Cascade Village Shopping Center. But I did have expectations, and not particularly high ones. I imagined walking into a dingy, musky room filled with tacky, lodgestyle décor: animal heads, thick wood beams that should have been cleaned months ago, and loud-patterned seats with tears that have been crudely ducttaped together. The menu, I assumed, would complement the hunting lodge ambiance in flavor and presentation. I couldn’t have been more off-base. Moose Sisters turned out to be a pleasant surprise from the moment I entered until the moment I left. It’s possible I have never been so happy to be wrong. The restaurant is located on the second floor, right above the clothing store Rue21. The elevator called my name, but because I was expecting a greasy meal with hefty portions, and because my destination was literally one floor up, I braved the stairs. Slightly winded (I know!) and overly hungry, I opened the double doors and was greeted with classic ambiance, a smiling hostess, and a modern, elegant design. The charming hostess asked for my seating preference, and I chose the patio. We made our way

past an open kitchen, tables filled with happy diners, and a thriving herb garden. “It’s for the chefs,” my guide explained with a smile, as if she, too, was impressed. I take my seat and take a moment to admire the view. The day was clear, and the mountains were making their presence known. Though the courtyard offered some decent people watching, I had food to eat. My server was bubbly and attentive while she took my drink order and explained the menu. Once again, my expectations were way off. This menu was clearly created by a trained chef, offering a wide variety of appetizers, sandwiches, salads, dinner (5pm to close) and weekend brunch (9am to 3pm) options. I started off with an appetizer, the Moose Made Spicy Onions Rings. These shoestring-style snacks were not the least bit spicy, but they were rather addictive. The only drawback is that I had to order the dipping sauce separately, because they are served naked, with nothing on the side. Note to the Moose: everyone loves a good dippin’! For dinner, I went for the Halibut Fish and Chips. The meat was delicate—almost silky—with nary a hint of fishiness. The shoestring fries were a crispy coun-

Next time, I will definitely try the Crispy Duck Egg, if it’s on the menu. When it’s available, this delightful concoction consists of a crispy fried sunnyside up duck egg sprinkled with asiago cheese and served with roasted asparagus. Other menu items include an Elk Burger, a Coconut Green Curry Bowl, and Fall Off The Moose Pork Ribs that are only available during dinner hours. It is refreshing to have a new dining option on this side of town—something a bit more upscale while still being very warm and welcoming. Shoppers and nearby residents will appreciate a change of pace from sushi and Mexican food, and those who hate shopping can belly up to the bar while their other half participates in retail therapy. Thank you, Moose Sisters, for proving me so very, very wrong. SW Moose Sisters 63455 N Hwy 97, Bend Hours: Mon-Fri, 10am-9pm Sat-Sun, 9am-9pm

Drinking wine for a good cause is something we can all get behind, and I was lucky enough to do exactly that last Friday at A Sip of Cork & Barrel at Broken Top Club. In addition to beer, cocktails, and a vast array of red, white, and blended wines from nearly a dozen wineries in Santa Barbara Wine Country, attendees were treated to small bites prepared by half a dozen local and regional chefs. Beyond food and wine, guests partook in a raffle, a silent auction, and photobooth shenanigans.

eer-of-the-month clubs, where members pay a flat fee each month and receive regular shipments of craft bottles, have been a “thing” since the early nineties. Tavour (tavour.com), meanwhile, is an alternative take on the concept. The difference? Better variety, total flexibility, and a selection of rare and seriously well-curated beer. Available in Oregon and nine other states, Tavour offers a constantly-changing lineup of eight beers, with one or two new brews rotated in each day. Users can read about the offerings on their phone app or via an email newsletter. Ordering a beer is as simple as clicking “Get it” and specifying a quantity. Tavour automatically ships purchases in batches every few weeks unless you specify otherwise, allowing you to fill up a box before it gets shipped out. It’s worth cobbling together a large order, because the prices are reasonable and shipping is scarily cheap: just $14.90, no matter how large the shipment. (The downside to this: Tavour uses a courier service instead of UPS or FedEx, and since it’s alcohol, a signature is required at the time of delivery. It’s a good idea to use your workplace as your shipping address.) This wouldn’t mean anything if the beers available weren’t good. But they are! Tavour has some fairly incredible

connections to breweries nationwide, and thanks to them, Oregonians can obtain some killer brews that wouldn’t be available otherwise. Some of the recent brewery highlights include: • Dark Horse Brewing: Not widely known outside its home state of Michigan, Dark Horse has made a name for itself among beer nerds for Plead the 5th, an out-of-sight imperial stout. For Tavour, they provide Smells Like a Safety Meeting, a highly aromatic IPA that got its name from a slang term for taking a marijuana break on the job. • Funkwerks: Based in Fort Collins, Colo., Funkwerks focuses on subtlety: pleasant saisons, fruity Belgian varieties, and so on. Barrel Aged Deceit, available from Tavour for $14.99, is a 9 percent oak-aged version of the Belgian pale that earned them gold at the Great American Beer Festival; it has a tart, fizzy kick to it that earns it fans well beyond Funkwerks’ Midwest-focused distribution. • Modern Times Beer: Based in San Diego, Modern Times’ name might sound familiar, as they collaborated with The Commons Brewery in Portland to make a complex saison called Good Problems. They offer quite a variety of beer on Tavour, too. Fruitlands is a funky, lowkey apricot gose, while City of the Dead is a stout brewed with house-roasted, bourbon barrel-aged coffee. SW

Brobusters

Your childhood is perfectly safe By Jared Rasic 33 VOLUME 20 ISSUE 29 / July 21, 2016 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Make way for the ladies—they certainly aren’t afraid of ghosts or manchild tears.

W

e should get the elephant in the room out of the way first. “Ghostbusters” 2016 is a reboot of the classic 1984 film and the less classic 1989 sequel (plus numerous video games and an animated series). The four new Ghostbusters are also women played by Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. When the reboot was announced, a very vocal (and male) online contingent decried how it would ruin their childhoods, and when it was announced that the new Ghostbusters would be women, that vocal contingent went absolutely batsh*t. Over the last few years, as women have been more vocally and visibly part of geek and nerd culture, this contingent has fought hard against what they see as an encroachment on their territory. The “No Girls Allowed” mindset has been around long before the internet, and

with 2014’s Gamergate controversy, the continued harassment of online female critics, plus the instant dismissal and hatred of a female “Ghostbusters,” it’s hard to imagine geek culture becoming more progressive any time soon. The argument that 1984’s “Ghostbusters” is a classic and shouldn’t be remade is a valid one, but without remakes we wouldn’t have John Carpenter’s “The Thing” or David Cronenberg’s “The Fly.” Since the “Ghostbusters” franchise hasn’t had an entry for 27 years, maybe we should be surprised it took so long. One thing that should be made clear is that “Ghostbusters” 2016 is not remotely a remake, but a full reboot of the entire universe. Many of the actors from the original films show up here, but they are playing new characters, thus crushing the dreams of anyone hoping to see a reunited Venkman, Stantz and Zeddemore

fighting ghosts.

belly laughs throughout.

The plot is the typical franchise reintroduction of the premise: the main characters meet, and then take on, an ever-escalating series of ghosts. The four leads have perfect chemistry together, and the entire film screams for further “Ghostbusters” films with these characters leading the charge. In a brilliant bit of meta-screenwriting, the villain is a typical Reddit misogynist who doesn’t believe for a second he can be stopped by four women.

Kate McKinnon steals the movie with both hands as Holtzmann, a brilliant and deranged engineer. She is the group’s Q, and her absolute glee at scientific discovery is something to behold. McKinnon will be a box office force after this film.

Everything isn’t completely perfect. The script has some groan-worthy dialogue, and some of the jokes land with a huge thud, but the film moves at such a brisk pace that whatever doesn’t work is quickly replaced by something that does. “Ghostbusters” 2016 actually works much better as an action/horror movie than it does a comedy, although there are

“Ghostbusters” is an all-too-rare female-led franchise film that deserves to be seen before being judged. As a massive fan of the original, I was skeptical about a reboot, even though I became more excited as it was cast. Imagine how terrible it would be if it was Jonah Hill and Seth Rogan in the jumpsuits, and then tell me how bad your childhood is now. SW Ghostbusters Dir.

Screaming bulls (oof), velvet mulies (poor little guys), mountain goats (they eat cans) and many more confused and terrified creatures. Children three and under get in free in case they’re curious how Bambi’s mom REALLY died. Bring the Kleenex!!!

Now your kids will understand all your “boring old” references with this screening of the original 1968 “Planet of the Apes.” When you tell them to clean a messy room and call them a “Damn, dirty ape,” they’ll understand that, while it’s them you’re saying it to, it’s also a shout-out to the best dystopian ape movie in history. Watch it again for the very first time.

The first ever R-rated DC comics animated film comes to theaters for one special screening. If you want to see a naked, afraid, and mildly insane Commissioner Gordon stare at naked photos of his crippled and bleeding daughter, then look no further. This is a very violent and very disturbing story for adults only.

Gerwig in a Box

"Maggie’s Plan" defies convention with convention By Jared Rasic

WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / July 21, 2016 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

34

Greta Gerwig and Ethan Hawke fall in and out of love in "Maggie’s Plan."

T

here is a specific type of indie romantic dramedy that has popped up over the last few years that owes a deep debt to the work of John Cassavetes. He brought a cinéma vérité style to American independent films that added a gritty realism to a genre that had only ever been light and fluffy. Films like “Faces” and “A Woman Under the Influence” paved the way for the modern mumblecore movement. Mumblecore took the low budget, handheld aesthetic, but emphasized dialogue and character relationships over plot. Directors like Andrew Bujalski, The Duplass Brothers, Joe Swanberg and Lynn Shelton pushed the genre forward, creating some true masterpieces and some painfully boring dreck. Greta Gerwig was one of the early mumblecore darlings, starring in early genre films like “Hanna Takes the Stairs” and “Baghead.” If Gerwig’s name was in the credits, the film was almost guaranteed to be biting, sarcastic and emotionally raw. She is almost synonymous with the genre, “Indie Romantic Dramedy.” That is why her inclusion in “Maggie’s Plan” almost works against it. The film tells the story of Maggie (Gerwig), a young academic who desperately wants to become a mother. She meets a ficto-critical anthropologist at her university named John (Ethan Hawke), whom she spends months talking to and eventually falling in love with. John is married to Georgette (Julianne Moore), a cold and clinical Danish professor. Three years pass, and Maggie and John are married with a beautiful daughter. But Maggie is very quickly falling out of love with John and hatches a plan to get

John back together with Georgette so that everyone is happy and no one is left alone. Maggie’s plan is the centerpiece of the entire film, but also its weakest element. The moments that make up Maggie and John falling in and out of love are some of the most painfully incisive and honest moments I’ve seen in a film all year. There is a moment midway through the film where Maggie and John are lying in bed together and she asks him if he wants her to read his horoscope. His casually uncaring “No” is one straw too far for her, and the painful anger Gerwig shows on her face is perfect. Gerwig, Hawke, Moore and an againsttype Travis Fimmel (Ragnar from ‘Vikings”) are all excellent in the film, and their chemistry makes the movie breeze by. Rebecca Miller’s script is filled with precisely drawn moments of truth and hilarious observations on relationships and couplehood, but the romantic comedy template steps on the tails of what is almost a classic little film. The film soars whenever it forgoes the typical romantic dramedy structure, but when it forgoes emotional honesty for genre convention, it feels too familiar. Having Gerwig in the film means there will be an honest and powerful performance, so relying on manufactured moments sells short what is otherwise a truly wonderful film. The lessons Cassavetes taught are not so easily forgotten. SW

Maggie’s Plan Dir. Rebecca Miller Grade: B Now playing at Tin Pan Theater


"The Infiltrator"

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic

DARK HORSE: “Dark Horse” is the inspirational and heartwarming true story about a barmaid in a small town in South Wales who decides to breed a racehorse. She names the horse Dream Alliance, and some of the villagers decide to help her with funding and advice. To tell anymore would be a disservice, as this is one of the loveliest and life-affirming documentaries of the last few years. Take the whole family to see it. Tin Pan Theater

FINDING DORY: Pixar waited 13 years to release a sequel to one if its most beloved films, so we can only hope it will reach the original’s greatness. With “Cars 2,” Pixar proved it wasn’t infallible when it came to their sequels, but after last year’s masterpiece “Inside Out,” it seems like they’re on a bit of a creative hot streak. Let’s hope it will be more than just “cute” and reach the emotional highs of “Inside Out,” “Toy Story 3” and “Up.” Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX GHOSTBUSTERS: It’s finally here, the movie that has made sexist man-children across the nation angry for the last six months. If a movie, any movie, can ruin your childhood just because it exists, maybe it was a bad childhood in general. This re-boot of the Bill Murray/Dan Aykroyd classic sees Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones team up to fight ghosts in Manhattan. The movie will sink or swim on its own merits, not because it’s a remake or because it’s women taking over. Judging from the advance reviews, there’s good and bad to be had. See full review, p 33. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE: The thing that made the original “Independence Day” so much fun was watching Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum bounce off of each other flawlessly while big landmarks exploded beautifully. Goldblum returns for the new film, but Smith’s character died between movies, so he’s replaced with Liam Hemsworth. A bunch of stuff still blows up. Two problems: 1) Hemsworth is no Will Smith, and 2) We’ve seen a lot of things blow up beautifully in the intervening years since the original film. This sequel will need to offer something novel to jaded moviegoers if it doesn’t want to be ignored. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

MAGGIE’S PLAN: The always excellent Greta Gerwig plays Maggie, a young woman who steals a volatile older writer from his wife of many years. After spending three years with him, she has fallen out of love and decided maybe he was perfect for his ex-wife in the first place. Thus, she hatches her plan to reunite the two and escape her loveless existence. This is a modern deconstruction of the typical romantic comedy triangle film, sure to please purists and casual filmgoers alike. See full review, p 34. Tin Pan Theater

THE BFG: The trailers for this aren’t exactly mind-blowing, but if anyone deserves our benefit of the doubt it’s Steven Spielberg. Based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, The BFG tells the story of a young girl and her adventures with a big, friendly giant. The book was surprisingly dark for a children’s novel, so hopefully the film finds a tonal balance between the seriousness of some of the subject matter and the lightheartedness Spielberg has been bringing to his films over the last decade. Either way, the film will be a visual marvel. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

, N.D. Blending Nature with Medicine Insurance Accepted

THE INFILTRATOR: This movie is based on the true story of a U.S. Customs agent who goes undercover in a drug laundering scheme involving Pablo Escobar. The reviews are bleak, but the idea of Walter White going up against Escobar seems rife with excitement. Apparently the film plays fast and loose with the facts, and the film looks incredibly ugly, but with Bryan Cranston, Joseph Gilgun, John Leguizamo, Amy Ryan, Jason Isaacs and Benjamin Bratt in the cast, how can it miss? This one is a cautious recommendation. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE LEGEND OF TARZAN: The timing for this film isn’t the best, as most of the marketing campaign is focusing on women as damsels in distress and Tarzan as a white savior helping the indigenous. Director David Yates knocked the last few “Harry Potter” movies out of the park, so hopefully his experienced eye will also bring some subtlety to a story that might not play very well in 2016. If the film is entertaining as a goofy throwback, then hopefully it won’t play as culturally insensitive or too old-fashioned. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR: The third film in the series of fun action/horror flicks where for 12 hours once a year, all crime is legal. The original was a home invasion flick. The sequel showed the action on the streets, and “Election Year” should delve fully into violent political satire. Hopefully, the film will subtly take the current political climate to task without fully delving into preachy commentary. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS: Even though the film looks chock full of cute animals and family-friendly shenanigans, the real draw here is Louis C.K. doing the voice of the main canine. Hopefully, his unique blend of self-deprecation and hope shines through and isn’t completely overshadowed by poop jokes and inane set pieces. This animated film is going to make all of the money, regardless of quality, because every kid who saw “Finding Dory” in the theater saw the preview for this and is already ridiculously excited. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE SHALLOWS: This is being hailed as the best shark movie since “Jaws,” and since that is one of the few perfect movies ever made, that’s saying something. “The Shallows” sees Blake Lively as a surfer stuck on a rock in shallow water as a shark circles, waiting for the tide to come in. The trailers are gorgeous, the plot is tight and focused, and Lively is genuinely a talented actor, so full-blown excitement for this one seems like a good call. Wade into this one; the water’s fine.

CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE: A buddy comedy/action flick starring The Rock and Kevin Hart seems like something that should have existed years ago. Kevin Hart plays a regular Joe who gets sucked into an old high school friend’s current spy lifestyle. Even in the very worst of movies, The Rock is always worth watching. Combining his oversized charisma with Kevin Hart’s unhinged energy should hopefully make for a comedy classic. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

The plight of the western pond turtle

GO HERE By Russ Axon

By Jim Anderson 37

This is an ongoing process with lots of moving parts, so progress is slow but it’s moving forward. Here is a link to the AZA SAFE web site: aza.org/SAFEWestern-pond-turtle. The rare and elusive western pond turtle. Photo by Jesse Short.

I

n this helter-skelter age it comes as a shock (to me) when suddenly someone says, “Hey, when was the last time you saw, this—or that—animal?” And that was the case when my herpetologist pal, Jesse Short from Central Oregon Community College, sent me photos of a western pond turtle, all excited about spotting it on the Deschutes River, near The Old Mill. Western pond turtles grow to an oval about 8-inches in diameter, have a hard shell on top, and a softer shell beneath. The top shell, known as the carapace, is speckled brown, while the lower shell, or plastron, is a sort of yellow with dark splotches. If, when you’re out hiking, fishing, birding, or just happen to find yourself near a quiet steam or pond and see a turtle—any turtle—especially one that looks like the one in the illustration above, please contact the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (541388-6363) immediately. Then, contact me: jimnaturalist@gmail.com. The species is in trouble in Oregon, and was once near extinction in Washington state, with only 150 individuals known, state-wide. Threats are many and differ regionally throughout their range, but habitat loss, degradation and fragmentation are foremost among them, due to agricultural production, development for human habitation, and in many areas, over-use and manipulation of water sources. More recently, prolonged drought and predation from bullfrogs appear to be additional culprits. Just looking at manipulation of water resources to better give western pond

turtles a break is so complicated it almost takes an act of Congress to get anything done—and we all know that an act of congress to help the welfare of a little turtle would certainly be a miracle without a Daddy Warbucks to push it along. Of the 327 known species alive today, some – like the western pond turtle are highly endangered. Turtles have been around a long, long time—long before Congress. The earliest known members of the turtle tribe date from 157 million years ago, making them one of the oldest reptile groups, and even more ancient than snakes and crocodiles. Fossils of the turtles living during the Miocene times are on display at the National Park Service John Day Fossil Beds Monument near Kimberly in the Thomas Condon Paleontology Museum. Our once common western pond turtle ranged from British Columbia in Canada; south to Baja, California; east to Mexico; and in western Nevada, Idaho and Washington. Unfortunately, herpetologists in the U.S. and Canada say that there hasn’t been a report of a western pond turtle in Canada since 1966. Then, in May of 2002, Canadian wildlife officials listed them on their Species at Risk Act, which is similar to our Endangered Species Act, and, yes, they are candidates for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s Endangered Species Act, with a decision slated to appear sometime this month. Simon Wray, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s non-game wildlife biologist for this region, is one of the

Recently the Society for Northwestern Biology published a “Western Pond Turtle Handbook” that focuses on the biology, research and conservation of the species, something they’ve been working on for a number of years and finally finished. Here is a link to that publication: bioaccumulation.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/new-releasenorthwest-faunas-western-pond-turtle-handbook. Wray added, “This will be the twenty-third year of my long-term western pond turtle monitoring study at selected sites in the Rogue Valley. I’ll also be instructing other ODFW, BLM, and USFS biologists on trapping and monitoring techniques. It will be a busy few days, as Oregon Field Guide wants to tag along and get some footage of the operations.” We can all look forward to Oregon Public Broadcasting's Oregon Field Guide presentation at 8:30pm, on a Thursday evening sometime in the near future. In the meantime, Simon reported that on the state level, ODFW and other collaborators have written a “Turtle Best Management Practices” publication. It’s free and ODFW is trying to get it into as many hands as possible; it’s relevant for pretty much anyone who may be interested in—or could affect—turtles, positively or negatively. Then he added, “It also has an awesome photo on the front cover…Yes it’s one of mine.” The free PDF is available online at sccp.ca/sites/default/files/species-habitat/documents/ODFW_Turtle_BMPs_March_2015_0.pdf SW Please report any sightings of any turtles you may see in your travels.

Bikers celebrate the opening of Prineville’s Bike Park. Photo courtesy Prineville Bike Park Facebook.

Prineville Bike Park Kick up the dirt in Prineville! After a combined three years of planning and construction, Prineville Bike Park officially opened this past Saturday, July 16. The bike park is the first of its kind in Central Oregon and was designed to be versatile for all types of bikes and all skill levels. Amateur bikers ride small moguls and curved paths, while experienced riders can launch off dirt jumps and build up speed on wooden ramps. The bike park is open to the public seven days a week, but closed during inclement weather to protect the integrity of the dirt and jumps. Fundraising efforts are still underway to pay for maintenance and additional features. Visit the Prineville Bike Park Facebook page to learn more.

Downtown Twilight ’Crit Saturday night, July 23, the roads of Downtown Bend will belong to cyclists, when the Downtown Twilight Criterium takes over. Part of the Cascade Cycling Classic, it consists of several quick races, starting at 5:30pm with the women’s Pro group, followed by the men at 7pm. The race path will loop around Bond and Wall Streets between Oregon and Idaho Avenues. This penultimate event is perfect for spectators, who line the sidewalks to cheer on the riders. For more information about the Cascade Cycling Classic, as well as the Crit, visit cascade-classic.org or CCC Downtown Twilight ’Crit on Facebook.

Bend Classic Mile Put foot to pavement at the Bend Classic Mile this Saturday, July 23. This is Bend’s first downtown mile, and it will take place during the Cascade Cycling Classic. The Classic Mile starts at 6:30pm., taking advantage of the 15 minutes between the women’s and men’s ’Crit races and following a similar path. The race is open to 100 community runners, while around 30 elite runners compete for fame and fortune and $5,000 in prize money to be awarded among the top 10 finishers—five men, five women—with an extra $500 awarded to the overall winner. Be sure to catch this fast-paced and exciting race for the first time ever. Spots are limited but may still be available leading up to the race. Registration is $25, and runners must be able to complete a mile in under 9 minutes. For more information, visit footzonebend.com. SW

key researchers working state-wide on the welfare of the western pond turtle. He told me, “There’s actually a lot going on in the wonderful world of western pond turtles. All western states, Washington, Oregon and California, as well as Mexico, have been working with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and their SAFE program (Save Animals From Extinction) to develop a range-wide conservation plan and conduct a species assessment.”

More Than It’s Worth

The perils of overpricing your home

In our current market, homes that are listed and priced correctly go very quickly, particularly in the lower and middle price ranges. Buyers know this as they see homes go pending shortly after coming on the market and often there are competing offers on homes. Putting a home on the market and pricing it correctly pretty much guarantees a quick sale due to our high demand and low supply and not because the home is underpriced. In fact, the possibility of competing offers may often

on yourfavorites Local Business

result in above listing price offers. A home that is overpriced loses the momentum of a new listing after sitting on the market and obtains a stigma for why it has not sold, even when the price is later reduced. Buyers working with agents see how long it is on the market. An overpriced listing just helps sell the competition and will not get shown because it is above the price range of buyers.

ADVICE GODDESS

Stray It Forward

—Hesitan There are many people who cross ethical lines at work, but most of them just do it by taking home Post-its or a stapler. Okay, sure, have a FWB thing, but with a married co-worker? What happened—too overworked to swipe right on Tinder? And as for why your co-worker started outsourcing her sex life, there’s an assumption that people cheat because they’re in crappy marriages or relationships. And maybe her marriage is unhappy. But infidelity researcher Shirley Glass found that even people in happy, loving marriages can end up cheating. They do this for a variety of reasons: more sex, better sex, different sex (men especially go for variety), or sometimes just because “she isn’t bad-looking and there’s an empty office with a big couch two doors down.” As for whether this woman would cheat on you, that depends on whether she’s the sort of person who cheats. And no, that isn’t as idiotic as it sounds. Evolutionary psychologists David Buss and Todd Shackelford found that there are personality traits common to people susceptible to cheating. One of the strongest predictors is “narcissism”—a personality trait marked by self-importance, self-absorption, a profound sense of entitlement, and a lack of empathy. Another big predictor is “low conscientiousness,” reflected in unreliability, disorganization, laziness, and a lack of self-control. And finally, there’s the unfortunately Norman Batesy-sounding “high psychoticism”—researcher-ese for a mix of aggressiveness, impulsivity, and an inability to delay gratification. Sound like anybody you’ve met in the janitor’s closet recently? Even if this woman checks out personalitywise, you’ll have a much clearer picture of what’s possible after she gets divorced. That is, if she gets divorced—if this thing with you doesn’t turn out to be “affair-apy” (a little sexual tide-me-over until she can patch things up with her husband). Regardless, you should take the time—a year or more—to parse who she really is and whether she and her husband are simply two (irreconcilably) different people or whether he just watches a wee bit too much ESPN when he comes home.

Tender Bender I’m a woman, married for a year to a great guy. The problem is that he’s too gentle when he touches or kisses me, and I’m starting to get really frustrated in bed. I know I should have let him know what I really like a long time ago. How can I do this now without hurting his feelings? —Embarrassed It’s hot to have a husband who’s kind of an animal in bed—except if that animal is Hello Kitty.  Words, who needs ‘em? Maybe you figured he’d get the hint from your body language -- maybe because you’re pretty sure you would have if the tables were turned. Well, research by social psychologist Judith A. Hall finds that women are far better at spotting and decoding nonverbal messages (in facial expressions and body language). This makes evolutionary sense, considering a mother’s need to suss out what’s wrong with her 6-month-old (who is unable both to speak and to get on the internet at 3 a.m. to self-diagnose his diaper rash as a brain tumor).  Still, you don’t have to give him a poor performance evaluation (ouch!) or go into sex ed lecturer-like detail. Instead, take the Gene Hackman approach. Hackman reportedly informs movie directors that the only directions he’ll take are “louder, softer, faster, slower.” (You might want to supplement those with “harder” and “rougher.”) To encourage greater openness, ask him what his sexual fantasies are (which should lead to the question, “Well, what are yours?”)—and do your best to deliver on any that don’t involve illegal acts with livestock.  You might also watch movies together with sex scenes that are more “G.I. Jane” than Jane Austen—like the 2005 movie “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” Then, when you’re in bed, suggest “Mr. & Mrs. Smith-style,” and he should get what you mean. Before long, when you tell your friends that sex with your husband is “dreamy,” it won’t be because you usually doze off during it.

VOLUME 20 ISSUE 29 / July 21, 2016 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

I’m a single guy who started a “friends with benefits” thing two months ago with an unhappily married female co-worker. We’ve since developed feelings for each other and started talking about a future. I’m worried because people always say, “If she cheated with you, she’ll cheat on you.” And because she’s unhappy with her husband, does that mean she’ll eventually be unhappy with me and see it as reason to cheat?

If you’re lucky, you’ll find these things out from her, and not in some awkward moment at the end of the workday when you finally get a chance to, uh, chat with her husband—through the windshield as you’re clinging to the hood of his moving car.

ASTROLOGY CANCER (June 21-July 22): Capricorns may be

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): My friend’s 12-year-old daughter Brianna got a “B” on her summer school math test. She might have earned an “A” if it weren’t for a problem her teacher had with some of her work. “You got the right answer by making two mistakes that happened to cancel each other out,” he wrote on her paper next to question seven. I suspect you will soon have a similar experience. Leo. But the difference between you and Brianna is that I’m giving you an “A.” All that matters in the end is that you succeed. I don’t care if your strategy is a bit funky. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Have ever fantasized about being a different gender or race or astrological sign? Do you suspect it might be fun and liberating to completely change your wardrobe or your hairstyle or your body language? The coming weeks will be an excellent time to experiment with these variables, and with any others that would enable you to play with your identity and mutate your self-image. You have a cosmic exemption from imitating what you have done in the past. In this spirit, feel free to read all the other signs’ horoscopes, and act on the one you like best. Your word of power is “shapeshifter.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The Golden Goose Award is given annually to “scientists whose work may have been considered silly, odd, or obscure when first conducted,” but which ultimately produced dramatic advances. Entomologists Raymond Bushland and Edward Knipling were this year’s winners. More than 60 years ago they started tinkering with the sex life of the screwworm fly in an effort to stop the pest from killing livestock and wildlife throughout the American South. At first their ideas were laughed at, even ridiculed. In time they were lauded for their pioneering breakthroughs. I suspect you’ll be blessed with a vindication of your own in the coming weeks, Libra. It may not be as monumental as Bushland’s and Knipling’s, but I bet it’ll be deeply meaningful for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I hope it doesn’t sound too paradoxical when I urge you to intensify your commitment to relaxation. I will love it, and more importantly your guardian angel will love it, if you become a fierce devotee of slowing down and chilling out. Get looser and cozier and more spacious, damn it! Snuggle more. Cut back on overthinking and trying too hard. Vow to become a high master of the mystic art of I-don’t-give-a-f*ck. It’s your sacred duty to steal more slack from the soul-anesthetizing grind.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I regularly travel back through time from the year 2036 so as to be here with you. It’s tough to be away from the thrilling transformations that are underway there. But it’s in a good cause. The bedraggled era that you live in needs frequent doses of the vigorous optimism that’s so widespread in 2036, and I’m happy to disseminate it. Why am I confessing this? Because I suspect you now have an extra talent for gazing into the unknown and exploring undiscovered possibilities. You also have an unprecedented power to set definite intentions about the life you want to be living in the future. Who will you be five years from today? Ten years? Twenty years? Be brave. Be visionary. Be precise.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Here’s one strategy you could pursue, I guess: You could spank the Devil with a feather duster as you try to coax him to promise that he will never again trick you with a bogus temptation. But I don’t think that would work, frankly. It may have minor shock value, in which case the Devil might leave you

in peace for a short time. Here’s what I suggest instead: Work at raising your discernment so high that you can quickly identify, in the future, which temptations will deliver you unto evil confusion, and which will feed and hone your most noble desires.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): After a cool, dry period, you’ll soon be slipping into a hot, wet phase. The reasonable explanations that generated so much apathy are about to get turned inside-out. The seemingly good excuses that provided cover for your timidity will be exposed as impractical lies. Are you ready for your passion to roar back into fashion? Will you know what to do when suppressed yearnings erupt and the chemicals of love start rampaging through your soft, warm animal body? I hereby warn you about the oncoming surge of weird delight—and sing “Hallelujah!” for the revelatory fun it will bring. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I’m composing your horoscope on my iPhone after midnight on a crowded bus that’s crammed with sweaty revelers. We’re being transported back to civilization from a rural hideaway where we spent the last 12 hours at a raging party. I still feel ecstatic from the recent bacchanal, but the ride is uncomfortable. I’m pinned against a window by a sleepy, drunken dude who’s not in full control of his body. But do I allow my predicament to interfere with my holy meditation on your destiny? I do not -- just as I trust you will keep stoking the fires of your own inspiration in the face of comparable irritations. You have been on a hot streak, my dear. Don’t let anything tamp it down! ARIES (March 21-April 19): You now have more luxuriant access to divine luck than you’ve had in a long time. For the foreseeable future, you could be able to induce semi-miraculous twists of fate that might normally be beyond your capacities. But here’s a caveat: The good fortune swirling in your vicinity may be odd or irregular or hard-to-understand. To harvest it, you will have to expand your ideas about what constitutes good fortune. It may bestow powers you didn’t even realize it was possible to have. For example, what if you temporarily have an acute talent for gravitating toward situations where smart love is in full play?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A directory published by the U.S. Department of Labor says that my gig as an astrologer shares a category with jugglers, rodeo clowns, acrobats, carnival barkers, and stuntpersons. Am I, therefore, just a charming buffoon? An amusing goofball who provides diversion from life’s serious matters? I’m fine with that. I may prefer to regard myself as a sly oracle inflamed with holy madness, but the service I provide is probably more effective if my ego doesn’t get the specific glory it yearns for. In this way, I have certain resemblances to the Taurus tribe during the next four weeks. Is it OK if you achieve success without receiving all of the credit you think you deserve? GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Over the course of a 57-year career, Japanese movie director Akira Kurosawa won 78 major awards for his work, including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Oscars. Among the filmmakers who’ve named him as an inspirational influence are heavyweights like Ingmar Bergman, Werner Herzog, Bernardo Bertolucci, Robert Altman, Francis Ford Coppola, and Martin Scorsese. But Kurosawa wasn’t too haughty to create lighter fare. At age 86, he departed from his epic dramas to create a 30-second commercial for a yogurt drink. Did that compromise his artistic integrity? I say no. Even a genius can’t be expected to create non-stop masterpieces. Be inspired by Kurosawa, Gemini. In the coming weeks, give your best to even the most modest projects.

SMOKE SIGNALS

NFL Just Says No to Pot

Chronic pain no excuse for cannabis use, says league

WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / July 21, 2016 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

46

Eugene Monroe was droppd by the Ravens after speaking out in favor of cannabis use for pain.

B

ack in March, Smoke Signals wrote about the state of cannabis in the NFL. The league has a zero-tolerance policy on cannabis, with a cannabis-related arrest or positive urine test costing players upward of $500,000, depending on salary, and resulting in a suspension of one to four games, up to a quarter of the season.

Despite the harshness of the penalty for using cannabis, the league’s testing regime seems to involve a wink-andnod approach. Players face a single test for cannabis before the beginning of the season. If they pass and there are no other reasons for a drug test (like a drunk driving arrest), the players face no further scrutiny of their cannabis habits until the next annual test. Most players apparently manage to abstain for long enough to pass the annual cannabis test, because former players and coaches say that 30 to 40 percent of active players use cannabis regularly. Some of that use is no doubt “recreational,” but, as Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Eugene Monroe so eloquently put it, when you play NFL football “your job automatically gives you the symptom of chronic pain.” Monroe has been outspoken in expressing his opinion that players should be allowed to use cannabis to treat chronic pain. (See eugenemonroe.com) The Ravens released Monroe recently, and even their own website seemed to suggest a link to Monroe’s activist statements. “I promise you, he does not speak

for the organization,” the team’s head coach said, after noting that Monroe was “…the first active NFL player to openly campaign for the use of medical marijuana. The Ravens did not rally behind the cause.” At the time of his release, Monroe was also injured and set to earn $6.5 million next season, which many consider sufficient reason to let him go. So whether the release was caused partially by his cannabis advocacy is questionable. Monroe seems to think there was a connection, however. “I can’t say for sure whether or not my stance on medical cannabis was the reason the Ravens released me,” he said. “However, as I’ve said in the past, they have distanced themselves from me and made it clear that they do not support my advocacy.” In Monroe’s case, the true test of whether the NFL is retaliating for his stance on cannabis will come this summer, when teams will finish off signing veteran free agents to plug the gaps in their rosters. Most experts agree that Monroe is still a viable player, and so on merit alone he should land another job for next season. With several high-profile retired players advocating for medical cannabis in the NFL, the continued silence of active players other than Monroe is telling. If it is the result of speech-chilling actions by the league, it’s working. “I don’t foresee a change in (the cannabis policy) in the short term,” says NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
