Don’t allow the notion of shortterm financial gain threaten the Endangered Species Act

Editor’s note: Our Dog Days of Summer issue conveniently—or perhaps, unfortunately—coincides with the U.S. Department of Interior and Department of Commerce’s recent announcement that the agencies would seek to weaken some of the provisions of the Endangered Species Act. In light of the proposed changes, we could imagine no one more qualified than our Natural World columnist Jim Anderson to weigh in.

By Jim Anderson


he news about the Department of Interior’s recent gutting (changing the wording and intent) of the Endangered Species Act is causing a lot of headaches in both the environmental and business world. In one camp, the changes appear to be the work of President Trump favoring the business world, especially that of fossil fuels. He has repeatedly chirped—oops, tweeted—that there’s nothing environmentally wrong with coal, and he’s going to see that it’s used to make electricity. In that dogma he’s also included oil. Other intolerant members of the business community have helped him visualize the Endangered Species Act of 1973 as being the villain of their attempts to make money and have decided it’s gotta go, or be altered in their favor. Many members of the bird-watching community are not in favor of altering the ESA, believing it’s working the way it’s supposed to, and that the authors did a superb job of ensuring the survival of the native animals it was written for. The recent work done to bring the bald eagle back from the brink of extinction is a good example. But before we can delve into the ESA’s dilemma we really have to look at the attitude of the humans who got it into the mess. The annihilation of the passenger pigeon is an example. The passenger pigeon, or wild pigeon (Ectopistes migratorius) was once endemic to North America. It no longer exists on the face of the Earth. They once existed in the billions—yes, billions! They weren’t really migrators as such, as their scientific name infers, but there were so many of them they were constantly on the move to find enough food and shelter. Billions of birds will blot out the sun as they fly overhead, and they did. Native people killed and ate them. They were a staple of their diet. That balance between resource and harvesting by man worked out for hundreds of years…until the arrival of the Europeans. The attitude of the early migrants to North America was to utilize everything they got their hands on without any regard to the future. They exploited the abundant resources around them, and a billion pigeons they used for food just could never run out—but they did, permanently, as in forever. It was this

same attitude when the millinery industry came up with the idea of placing bird feathers in ladies hats. Hunters with guns killed every bird adorned with feathers that could be sold. During the height of that period, bird feathers were selling for prices higher than gold. The slaughter of birds reached a point where egrets almost followed the passenger pigeon into oblivion. Then the people who saw the slaughter leading to complete annihilation of several bird species got busy and said enough was enough. Florida was (and still is) the state with a high number of birds that possess egrets (feathers that become very noticeable during breeding time). Most are white, and that’s what the millinery trade told the women of the up-and-coming modern age of 1900 should have in their hats. Billions of birds were slaughtered for their feathers. Florida tried to stop the killing and a warden was hired to protect the birds, but he was murdered by the bird hunters. That was when the Audubon Society was born. It was also the birth of the first federal preservation act, the Federal Migratory Bird Act of 1918, that would some day lead to the Endangered Species Act of 1973. The Act was signed into law in an era when the ultimate survival of many birds as a species was threatened by the commercial trade in birds and bird parts and feathers. It was one of the first federal environmental laws (the Lacey Act to protect Native American cultural treasures had been enacted in 1900). What came out of that act was not only the protection of the birds themselves, but conventions that stipulated protections for habitats and environs necessary for the birds’ survival. And that takes us up to the ESA. It is that protection of the habitat that these endangered species require to survive that sometimes gets in the way of big business. In spite of the ultimate demise of the passenger pigeon, and the very close extinction of many species of birds for their feathers and parts, there are all too many people in business who disregard the possibility of extinction, or consider it necessary, when it comes to interfering with their making a profit. Tom Crabtree, one of the local leaders in bird conservation has this to say: “The Endangered Species Act was

parakeet. Extinction becomes a more likely outcome for many species under the Trump proposals.” Craig Miller, another premiere birder of this region, has this to say: “If I were to boil it down, I would say that the concept of species preservation as embodied in the ESA is based on science, economic sustainability and longterm survival of the human race. Those who would weaken the ESA are interested in selfish short-term financial gain and/or are deficient in scientific understanding.” It was the early work of two giants of Oregon’s bird conservation that brought me to Oregon from Connecticut. In September of 1951 I rolled into Bend on my 1947 Harley-Davidson, and that next spring I went to Silver Lake to see, with my own eyes, the tiny colony of common egrets nesting in the small clump of willows in the middle of the lake, that so captured Dallas Lor Sharp, Herman T. Bohlman and William L. Finley in 1918. Finley was the first director of Oregon’s wildlife commission, and they were on their way to Burns where Finley had promised the residents a hatchery. So when they drove past that long-ago lonely spot in Silver Lake, they saw the egrets nesting in the willows. Finley and Bohlman were convinced the egrets had been hunted into extinction by the plume-hunters, and the shock and joy of seeing them was portrayed so beautifully by Sharp in his book, “Where Rolls the Oregon;” it caught me when I read it in 1936. Today, because of “man’s needs,” there are no willows or water in Silver Lake. In spite of the obvious need for water to keep the willows going, to keep the egret breeding colony going, the need for water to keep the hay-growers in business has trumped (if you’ll pardon my pun) the needs of birds. And that, Dearly Beloved, will be the fate of many, many native wildlife

species if the ESA is bludgeoned and torn apart by businesses having no regard for the welfare of the natural environment and its residents. My good friend and birding companion, Chuck Gates, retired teacher and the most important person in our area who keeps an eye on the welfare of the wildlife of our only salt lake, Lake Abert, has this to say: “Certainly, the ESA has been instrumental in stemming the constant threat of human progress on the natural world (in the U.S., anyway). I am fascinated (and more than a little concerned) by the intersection of the ESA and politics.  “Locally, and increasingly throughout the West, the ESA has been labeled as a weapon yielded by anti-capitalists who, for reasons never really explained, want to destroy hardworking American workers.  The living creatures have little to do with these discussions and are rarely mentioned," Gates says.  “The ESA is the evil talisman wielded by the evil government to separate the noble businessman from his meager and honest dollar. The obvious hyperbole of the previous sentences might seem a bit over the top but they are not far from the narrative that plays out every day in western USA.  I see places like Crook County making unholy alliances with the Patriot Movement and creating written policies that make no bones about various ESA end-arounds that are planned for the future.  “While this attitude might currently be localized, the potential for it to spread, especially in the West, is very disconcerting.  Government employees are facing dangerous and unstable (as well as well armed) individuals should an ESA situation occur here.  Through intimidation and threats, local groups have what could become a stranglehold on implementing any measures designed to protect wildlife.  I’m not optimistic about the future of the ESA,” Gates concludes

Our local Golden Eagle. Can the Endangered Species Act help them to survive?

The recovery of the bald eagle from possible extinction in the last decade has made it possible for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in December 2016, to raise to 4,200 per year the number of bald eagles that can be killed by the wind electric generation industry without paying a penalty. If issued, the permits would last 30 years, six times the current 5-year permits. Enough is enough… As my long time hero of The Land, Aldo Leopold, once said, “If the land mechanism as a whole is good then every part is good, whether we understand it or not…To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering.” That, Dear People, is what the ESA and other of our conservation laws are all about—saving enough of our biota as possible.  SW The public comment period for the proposed changes to the ESA ends Sept. 24.

pushed by President Richard Nixon and Congress responded by passing it in 1973. It might be hard to believe now that the Nixon Administration was also responsible for the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Environmental Policy Act.  “The gutting of the ESA by the Trump administration proposal in the name of streamlining the regulatory process would be disastrous for wildlife and those who love it.  It places corporate desires over those of wildlife.  It promotes projects over protection." Crabtree goes on to quote Jamie Rappaport Clark, who was director of the Fish and Wildlife Service under President Bill Clinton, who said, “Unfortunately, the sweeping changes being proposed by the Trump administration include provisions that would undercut the effectiveness of the ESA and put species at risk of extinction." Clark is now president and chief executive of Defenders of Wildlife: Crabtree then said, ‘The signal being sent by the Trump administration is clear: Protecting America’s wildlife and wild lands is simply not on their agenda." “Most analysts agree that if it weren’t for the Endangered Species Act, bald eagles, whooping cranes and gray wolves would now be extinct. The peregrine falcon, nene (Hawaiian Goose) and Kirtland’s warbler would be on the edge of extinction.  Before the act was passed, only 1,200 humpback whales were left in the Pacific Ocean.  Now, due to a strong recovery program, over 22,000 now roam there.  Grizzly bears, brown pelicans, California condors and American alligators are other species that have come back from the brink,” Crabtree said. “Unfortunately if the proposed changes had been in place over the last four decades many species would have gone the way of the passenger pigeon, great auk and Carolina

and went through all the same motions as me including the MRI! After He had traced it to the trains idling on Norton street near Revere. He told me that he’d contacted the ODOT about the issue and would they mind not idling the trains. Well, they didn’t have time for that nonsense. His theory is that the basalt layer underground acts as a sound transmitter and delivers an idling sound that comes up from the bottom of the house.

IN RESPONSE TO, “THE WAR WAGES ON” ON 7/19 Thank you so much for the article “The War Wages On” about the scope of the opioid crisis across the nation and here in Central Oregon. What I most appreciated was the portrait of a person who in many ways could be the poster child for the values of this region: an ultra-runner/real estate agent, what could be more Bend than that? It is time to end the hyperbolic stigmatization of addicts and alcoholics as slovenly ne’er-do-wells and start waking up to the fact that we are your neighbors, your daughters, even your grandparents. The more the media portrays those struggling with addiction in a polarized manner, the more shame is entrenched, and the less likely addicts are to seek help. Just because half the town downs a growler every night but manages to get up for work the next day, doesn’t mean that we are not all somewhere on the spectrum for addictive and destructive behaviors. I recently returned from inpatient rehab (round two after two years sober and a protracted nosedive with booze after Christmas), where I experienced firsthand the use of Medication-Assisted Treatment in the form of Suboxone for the majority of clients

recovering from opioid addiction. Suboxone (brand name for Buprenorphine) is a partial opioid agonist, meaning it fills the same receptors and activates them to a moderate degree, which reduces cravings and prevents overdose, or even euphoria, if opioids are reintroduced. At first I was skeptical and prejudiced. I snidely remarked “it’s just trading one drug for another,” a feeling that I discovered is widely shared by both the recovery and medical communities. And then I did some research. Those on Suboxone or Methadone are 50 percent more likely to stay in treatment and stay sober, and studies in Europe have shown MAT is actually more effective than group/ talk therapy in a cohort of patients who were given one or the other. Yet only a small percentage of treatment programs in the US offer MAT. Instead the majority (85 percent or more) of rehabs adhere to the abstinence-only philosophy promulgated by 12-Step programs. The most devastating aspect of this hardline approach is that many of those who become abstinent in rehab overdose as soon as they start using heroin again because their bodies no longer have tolerance, and multiple studies have shown that over 90 percent of opioid addicts (not on MAT) will relapse within weeks of treatment. Opioids are not alcohol, and to treat it the same is not only doing a grave disservice to the victims of this epidemic, it’s literally killing people. So, where can you get Suboxone in Central Oregon? Pretty much nowhere. My rehab was unable to set up continued care with Suboxone for a fellow patient returning to this region, and an internet search brought up only three prescribing doctors in Bend, some of whom might only use it for pain, or likely require time-consuming outpatient treatment to “qualify” for help. Obtaining a license to do so requires a mere eight hours of training. Doctors, where are you? I thought you were in the business of saving lives. What’s holding you back? Is it because addicts are a bunch of lying thieves? Don’t worry, here in Bend we’re ultra-running real estate agents.

I’ve noticed over the last year a distinctive, incessant industrial-like hum/pulse in NE Bend and at my house particularly. I’ve tried everything to find it to no avail until last night. Some of my neighbors can hear it and so I wonder how many other people can hear it and are bothered by it? I’ve tried: turning off my electricity, still hear it. Shut off my water, still hear it. Had Pac Power come out and inspect the nearby generators and lines to the box. They sprayed the box with insulating foam, still hear it. There are no overhead power lines in my part of Boyd Acres. Had my hearing checked. All normal. Had an MRI to make sure it wasn’t a blood vessel clogged or tumor pushing into my hearing canal. All clear. Had a roofing guy come out, nothing vibrating on the roof. Had an insulation guy come out, everything full cavity fully insulated. Searched the neighborhood for burnt out street lights. Found one and reported it, hasn’t been changed yet. Went to city hall to see if there are utility easements nearby-nope! It could be HWY 97 and so got some window bids. Changing out my windows to different thickness for each pane would be about $15k and might not solve the problem. Other cities have reported similar hums...there is a Taos hum and Bristol hum. Some people have reported that better windows can make the problem worse as it blocks out the other sounds/white noise and the hum is more pronounced. This affects the quality of my sleep big time. I’ve tried earplugs which don’t help. And spent hundreds of dollars on various white fan noise machines. One good contact came when I reached out to the Utility Dept to see if the water pressure was too high. That’s all good, but he was very empathetic as he’d been hearing the sounds too (for years)

By Chris Miller

“Do you think these guys know how to play, or do you think we’ll be looking for lost balls all day?”


Goat caddies at a new course in Eastern Oregon give advice—when they want to By Mike Le Chevon (as interpreted by Chris Miller)


t’s a great day to be a caddy,” I said to my best buddy and Caddy Master Bruce LeGoat as we walked up the gentle grade from the livery stable to the caddy shack at Silvies Valley Ranch to eat our breakfast of organic antelope brush and juniper, and sip on spring water, like the kings of the course that we are. “You boys have a round at 10 this morning, so eat up and we’ll get you fitted with your backpacks for the day,” the caddy assistant said. “Hey Mike,” Bruce asked me, “Do you think these guys know how to play, or do you think we’ll be looking for lost balls all day?” I didn’t bother to answer. I was way too busy munching on the delicious breakfast in my trough.

Right at 10, two guys in shorts came to the first tee, trying to lead us around like we were regular pack animals. My player—some sort of writer—even tried to grab a club without asking me the yardage first. I gave him a polite snort and offered the 9-iron, which he proceeded to hit into the green-side bunker. On the second hole—fortunately, there are only 7—my player hit a sizzling hosel-rocket into the sage. Mike gave me his famous “oooooh greaaaat” as we both snickered and sniffed around for his Titleist. After putting out, and again trying to grab a club without my council, I decided to lean into my player with my head to get his attention. Apparently he’s spent some time on the farm because

he leaned back, then quickly moved his weight away. I nearly took a knee. He shot me a glance, and then some scratches under the chin and a peanut. I knew we’d be best buddies. Bruce and I lugged the two players' clubs up the rises and down the hills. Neither player lost a ball after the second hole and were kind enough to let us drink from the water bucket on the fourth hole, where there’s also free beer for the players. Walking down the nice path to the final green, I leaned into my player, who gave me lots of pets and scratches under the chin. He didn’t really need the lead; we were best buddies and I hoped to see him again soon. After the assistant took off my pack— equipped with three can holders, two tubes for clubs and pouches for peanuts and golf balls— and refilled our water, Bruce and I chatted about the round, and how much better life was since we became caddies. “I’m so glad to be out of that deadend job,” Bruce said, looking over the ranch, watching our 2,000 or so friends and family work the fields. I thought about all the friends I’d lost to the daily grind. “You’re dead right Bruce,” I said, taking a long sip of the water and grabbing another mouthful of sweet grass.

Silvies Valley Ranch in Seneca, Ore.—a three-hour drive east of Bend— has one of the largest herds of organic meat goats in the world. This spring, the team started the goat caddy program, used on the 7-hole McVeigh Gauntlet course, “when the goats were asking for different career opportunities—for good reason,” Colby Marshal, vice president of livestock and guest services, said. The ranch currently has two goat caddies and two more in training. Bruce LeGoat is the caddy master and has three years of training under his belt. Mike LeChevon—who caddied for me and is an exceptionally friendly goat—is four years old and a fine caddy. Peanut LeGoat is two, the nephew of Bruce, and loves his new career (he was the Reserve Champion Market Goat at the Harney County Fair in his previous profession). Roundabout LaDoe is a year and a half and will be the first female goat caddie (Silvies thinks) in the world. The ranch has another 18-hole course, which is reversible, making it two different courses. There’s also a 9-hole, par 3-course, among the other sporting opportunities, like shooting ranges. If you want to have fun, and have an animal companion, the Gauntlet course is well worth the quick round. The course is hilly, but the views of the Silvies River Valley are without compare. It’s not an easy course; the greens are small and the two par-4s require some precise shots or you’ll lose a few balls, but hey, you have a goat carrying your clubs, so lighten up! Since the goat caddy course is so new, the greens and tee boxes will need some time to mature. Pro tip: bring a ball mark repair tool and replace your divots whenever possible to let the grass mature.  SW

PEMF therapy offers a non-invasive treatment aimed at relieving pain in pets By Anne Pick


any people seek alternative means of health care. We do yoga, visit naturopaths, try acupuncture — anything that leans away from more pills and more masking of pain and suffering, rather than invoking the natural healing that occurs within our own bodies. And why shouldn’t we do the same for our pets? Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is one option, involving the use of static magnets as a healing modality. It started with horses and later humans. Abraham Essinger performs PEMF therapy locally on both humans and animals. PEMF therapy involves the production of magnetic fields applied to a targeted area or the entire body, which penetrate the body without pain or invasive methods. PEMF therapy is thought to help prevent pain signals from passing through the body and promotes the body’s natural ability to heal itself. By contrast, painkillers often only mask pain instead of allowing the body to heal at the source of the pain. Proponents say PEMF helps animals and humans alike by recharging the cells within the body, optimizing cell function and restoring the body’s natural ability to heal. “For dogs, especially for those with hip dysplasia, arthritis and any soreness, I’ve seen unbelievable results,” Essinger

says. “Three to five visits on PEMF therapy and you can see a day and night difference in small animals and horses. The animals are so much more in touch with the natural pulse of our planet, the 7.83 hertz, so for animals the benefits are astronomical.” PEMF therapy exercises the cells using pulsed magnetic fields, in an effort to bring them back into electrical balance while increasing oxygen flow. The thinking is that properly charged cells result in decreased soreness, decreased inflammation, increased range of motion, reduced stress and the ability for the person or animal to perform at their personal best. Essinger discusses “hertz” because the charge varies depending on the ailment for which you seek PEMF therapy. Animals respond well to the type of therapy due to their accelerated metabolisms compared to humans, he says. “When I go to farms and ranches, all the other animals lay on the cord, they gravitate right to it,” Essinger says. “The animals are much more in tune with the rotation of the earth. We don’t feel it because we have shoes on and are in brick and mortar buildings. You and I only feel about 3.5 hertz.” Essinger says PEMF therapy can be beneficial for improving symptoms of

PEMF therapy was first FDA approved for use on horses and can now be used on a variety of animals.

arthritis, hip dysplasia, post-surgical recovery, immunity strength, anxiety, bones and wound mending, soft tissue injuries, degenerative bone disease and more. For many of these conditions, anti-inflammatory medications have often been the go-to. Owners of pets with these conditions find the non-invasive process of PEMF therapy to be painless for the animal, Essinger says, and can see results without the use of anti-inflammatory medications. “Once we get through the initial five to 10 visits, I recommend pets come in once or twice a month for regular upkeep, especially for larger animals,” Essinger says. “They should see a noticeable difference — sleeping better, more focused, more alert, eating, drinking more water, animals are overall

healthier with PEMF therapy. It’s the fifth element, it’s the vibration of our planet.” Treatment for people involves lying on a pulsing table or chair connected to the PEMF machine. The therapy itself feels similar to a pulsing massage. Essinger uses a machine manufactured by a company called Pulse Centers. For animals, PEMF pulses are applied using loops of varying diameters worn by the horse or small animal. These loops are ideal for small animals, and on people, can be used for small areas of tissue.  SW Non-Invasive PEMF Therapy for Pets Abraham Essinger, LCT 541-728-2682

s recently as 10 years ago, Bend parks were being overrun by Canada geese. The birds pluck out lawns, erode riverbanks, soil the ground—and can scare off visitors. Former Bend Park and Recreation District Natural Resources Manager Paul Stell was troubled by the once-prevailing method of eradicating—translation: euthanizing— the offenders. He approached the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Wildlife Management Department, and together the two agencies formulated a better plan: letting dogs help! Hazing, or using specially-trained canines to discourage geese from settling in the parks, is one part of the multi-faceted program BPRD has adopted, with remarkable success. The dogs keep the goose population down, allowing staff to avoid euthanization. Anyone with a welltrained canine—one that responds well to commands and is easily controlled—can apply for off-leash hazing. BPRD now has an official Goose Management Plan, with five essential components, according to current Natural Resources Manager Jeff Amaral: education, habitat modification, egg oiling, hazing and removal.


“It’s not OK to feed the geese,” Amaral emphasizes. “It’s harmful to the birds, it contributes to pollution, and it’s against Bend Parks’ and city ordinances.”


Much of Bend’s river bank area is lined with strips of native vegetation, eliminating the easy access of grass- or

soil-lined shores. “We see the most goose activity in places where they can just walk right up the bank and access the grass by foot. At Drake Park and other areas there is grass right up to the river, really attractive to the geese, whereas at Riverbend or Farewell Bend Park, McKay, Miller’s Landing – they all have a strip of native vegetation,” Amaral says.


Coating nest eggs with corn oil prevents oxygen exchange through the shell and thereby inhibits growth. Amaral points out that the practice is encouraged by the Humane Society of the United States as a responsible alternative to removing the eggs or having to euthanize developed birds. “To me, if the Humane Society supports it, that really says something. Some people ask, why don’t you just remove them? If you do that, the female will just re-nest somewhere else. With oiling, the female continues to incubate it until she realizes it’s not a viable nest. By that time her physiology is changed and it’s too late for her to re-nest.”


Amaral says the district has tried a lot of things and ultimately found that a combination of methods gets the best results. “We use multiple techniques and vary the techniques, so the birds don’t get used to it. It takes a lot of persistence.” Park employees have even used paintball markers to chase the birds off the water. “Of course, we’re not trying to hit the birds. Just the sound and the pellets landing in the water, that splash, does a great job to get those birds to fly.”

At one point, Bend Park and Recreation District turned to euthanization to manage Canada goose populations—a move that earned the District some bad press as far away as Canada. Now, goose-hazing dogs are part of the solution.

The token staff girl in a male-dominated industry (and this week’s Source cover model), she’s all business; a vocal alpha female through and through. This lady is a workhorse. Fetch, chase and chew toys are all in her portfolio—but she’s not just brains and brute; she’s a beauty too. Though all the shop dogs have local followings of sorts, Nami is easily the most recognized and gets the most likes, shares and comments when she graces social media. Some might call her a “cover girl,” but judging by her love of the water, in a past life she was definitely a marine mammal.

Type: Mixed breed rescue

Every staff needs that relaxed-fit oldtimer who keeps things mellow when the high tides of summer tourism threaten to overwhelm. Jake is that guy. Being besties and roommates with Hank, they balance each other nicely. With river trips and shop BBQs, Jake can often be found rooting around the kitchen for scraps. His thoroughness precedes him, leaving no stone unturned or corner un-sniffed. The secret to his snack success? The low-angle rubbish bin where discarded lunch bits can easily be fished out.

Type: Mixed breed rescue

While small, he packs a big punch in personality. Like Ma Anand Sheela to Osho, anywhere the programs director is, Tillo is close by. Tillo’s self-appointed duty is to carefully guard the programs office, giving him cause to pat down any entrants and give an occasional high-pitched bark to identify funny business. Tillo has a one-track mafioso mind, rarely straying from his master without separation anxiety. The only exception: distractions by foreign smells or K9 comrades. Rafting on the river, Tillo prefers to be the lead boat and whines profusely if circumstance don’t allow that. Tillo’s most endearing quality is his youthful appearance; the term forever puppy is not misused on him.

Dark Humor

The Decemberists new album blends dark themes with upbeat sounds—and more synthesizers By Anne Pick Holly Andres

The new Decemberists album could be described as an apocalyptic dance party, which may look a little something like this.

remembers band mates Chris Funk and Jenny Conlee showing up to the studio with synthesizers under their arms. After experimenting with arrangements and playing with sounds, everyone got excited. Diving into the lyrical content of the album also reflects growth and refinement on Meloy’s part. This time around, the songwriter, who works best mid-day at home, took more time editing and refining the lyrics. “The idea of writing in a hotel room is awful to me. I’ve always been terrified of someone hearing me. Having people hear me practice or do the humiliating task of writing songs, which involves

singing nonsense words — I actually need my own space away from people.” The Decemberists are known for mixing darker lyrical themes with more upbeat sounds. Since the new album debuted in March, I’ve listened to it endlessly. From “Everything is Awful” to “Sucker’s Prayer,” each song presents a relatable, yet dour feeling that we all have fallen victim to in our own lives— while also being upbeat sonically. The album relays common themes of isolation and extreme emotion, but taken to a place of humor. “I think some people questioned, ‘Has anyone checked in with Colin Meloy recently?’” Meloy says. “I get

it. I think there are certainly darker tones than may have been on previous records. I also think, the music itself is more upbeat. We’ve traded that in a lot in the past, marrying upbeat sound with dour lyrics.” The band’s latest single, “Sucker’s Prayer,” tells the story of a man on the brink of suicide who sings, “I wanna love somebody but I don’t know how / I’ve been so lonely and it’s getting me down / I wanna throw my body in the river and drown.” The song continues by telling how he stuffs rocks in his pockets and wades into the water, but the current carries his pants away, leaving him standing in the river nude. Dark, yet humorous: the perfect marriage in indie rock songwriting. “I hope that they find something they can relate to,” Meloy says of the album. “I think it is really about finding that darkness in yourself, or that despair, and trying to house it in some humor and finding the absurdity in the catastrophe of living. At the end, I would hope, it sticks a hopeful note with ‘I’ll Be Your Girl.’ I hope at the end that people come out feeling better. That sort of feeling of someone else feels the same way I do can be healing in its own right.”  SW

s a music writer, as a music lover, you can only hope that on your birthday that a band you adore plays a concert nearby — at least that’s what I cross my fingers and wish for when I blow out my candles. This year, I finally lucked out; a band whose most recent album I can’t get enough of performs on my 32nd birthday. The Decemberists return to the Les Schwab Amphitheater in support of their most recent album, “I’ll Be Your Girl.” Upon hearing “Severed,” the first single off of “I’ll Be Your Girl,” listeners notice a sound that may not be as familiar, incorporating synthesizers more heavily than some fans may be used to. According to the band’s lead singer Colin Meloy, it fits perfectly within the language of The Decemberists. “It was reaching into a different part of our collective record collection,” Meloy says. “You know, I feel like at the end of the day, we’ve experimented enough over the course of our career that this felt like it was within the language of The Decemberists. It was certainly the music I grew up listening to, like New Order and The Cure, who I consider prime influencers of what I do, which may not have been clear throughout the course of our career.” Meloy is ready to try something different. After the last couple records treading the same well-worn path—something that brought them comfort and success, the band was ready for a 90-degree turn. For “I’ll Be Your Girl,” the band worked with a new producer in a new studio, which invited experimentation. Meloy

Pilots & Balloons

Darren Kling

Greg Miller

Darren Kling has 25 years of experience flying balloons around the country as well as internationally and is the owner/operator of Big Sky Balloon Co. based here in Central Oregon. He offers scenic balloon flights over the spectacular landscape of the high desert and manages a corporate balloon program for RE/ MAX International throughout the Pacific Northwest. He’s logged over 2000 hrs of flight time and maintains a perfect safety record.

As a Free Lance Photographer, Greg Miller was looking for opportunities to take stock photos, and was invited to a balloon event in Salem, Oregon. Miller attended the event and started crewing soon after in 1990. What started out as a photographic experience, turned into a lifetime passion. Miller ended up buying the balloon he was crewing for and, in 1995 received his private pilot license. A year later he got his commercial pilot license.

I’ll Fly Away 2

Robert Raper

Doug Adamczyk

I received my commercial certificate in 1996 and currently fly throughout 11 states. Currently, I have 4 Balloons and manage my business – High Plains Drifter Hot Air Balloons, LLC. I usually attend 7-10 events annually from Nevada, Albuquerque, New Mexico to Oregon.

Doug Adamczyk has been involved in Ballooning for thirty years. “I have flown balloons in 5 states and participated in multiple balloon festivals in CA, OR, NY, OH, and MI. I look forward to returning to Bend for my second year!” In 2013 he bought a balloon and one year later he received his Lighter Than Air rating. Currently, he is a member of the Northeast Ohio Balloon Pilots Association, the Balloon Federation of America and the Pacific Coast Aeronaunts.

Fallen Angels

Jack Loflin Emerald

Jack Loflin’s first stab at piloting was when he was 6 years old. It was a small “line controlled” airplane with a 13-inch wingspan and no passengers. At 18 years old, he started flying “real” airplanes. Over the last 19 years, he has logged over 5,000 hours flying various aircraft. Although he started with airplanes, he now also flies helicopters, gliders, and hot air balloons. He holds an Airline Transport Pilot certificate and is a certified flight instructor for airplanes, helicopters, and balloons. His day job is as an airplane and helicopter test pilot.


Jesse Rafn REMAX

I have been involved in the Ballooning community since 1992, when my Dad took me to my first balloon rally. The passion for ballooning “took off” when I was able to get a balloon ride with a local Portland pilot at the age of 6. Ballooning has been a central factor in my life for as long as I can remember, and I knew that I needed to become a pilot as soon as I could. I received my Private license in 2005 and followed it up with my Commercial in 2011.

A Clucking Politician

In honor of the Dog Days of Summer issue, the Source names its (informal, not legally binding) Pet Mayor of Bend By Source Staff

beloved—to put their paws in the ring for Pet Mayor? With that, our contest was born. We put it out on social media and in our paper, and a proud few emerged as front runners. In the end though, it was Blanco the Silkie Chicken who won our hearts, and who stands victorious as the Source Weekly’s Pet Mayor of Bend in 2018. Never mind that her name means “white” in Spanish; neither race nor creed was a factor in this particular election. Here’s a little about Blanco, submitted by her human, Jasmine Barnett:

"Thank you for inviting me to take part in your Pet Major campaign. But I see what you’re doing. You’re trying to create a distraction. By inventing another category, you’re perpetuating human control of the city. I’m running in the actual mayoral race because humans have made a mockery of the political system, and it’s time for a real change. Humans are not the climax species of politics. I’m sure you’re aware that I am the only mayoral candidate to receive not only local front page coverage, but  national  and  international  coverage as well. There are humans among you that know, as the Egyptians knew, that we cats are the ones truly at the helm. You’ve managed to take control of the political system for 4,500 years. And for the most part, it worked. But now, even at the highest levels you humans are stumbling, you are divided, and you will fall.  And I have no intention of stopping at mayor of Bend. Soon I and other enlightened cats like the late mayor Stubbs will gain their rightful role in the political construct and lead civilization to a brighter place.  Our ears are back and our claws are sharp. You can do this the easy way or the hard way. But you humans will surrender control. Thank you for your vote and admiration. I look forward to representing you in the future. —Leonardo F. Bend"

Shaw practiced traditional Western veterinarian medicine with both large and small animals before he discovered alternative medicine. “I wanted to provide services not available at other clinics,” he said. “That’s how I got involved in alternative medicine.” Alternative therapies include acupuncture, Chinese herbs, homeopathy and essential oils. Chinese herbs and acupuncture are the big ones he uses. He says, “Both were developed for animals, then it went to people.” Shaw describes acupuncture as a quick fix he uses with patients and Chinese herbs as a long-term cure. “I start with Western medicine and go from there,” Shaw says as he describes past cases. “Unless it’s a longterm problem, then I would more readily offer alternative medicine as my initial approach.” A 14-year-old black lab came to Shaw who was acutely paralyzed. The dog had already seen a neurologist. An MRI and CT Scan uncovered degeneration of the spinal cord. After spending thousands of dollars to find out what was wrong, the only treatment available was an anti-inflammatory to alleviate the pain. Shaw used acupuncture and Chinese herbs and he said the Labrador “got a lot of

his function back. It greatly improved the function of his rear legs. Western medicine could treat the symptom, but alternative medicine had a greater curative effect.” Another dog he treated had a problem with red eyes. “I treated conventionally with eye ointments for three weeks with no resolution,” said Shaw. “I then treated with acupuncture and it resolved in one day.” Shaw looks at alternative medicine as additional tools in his toolbox. He remembers when he was seeing quite a few dogs for seizures and high doses of anti-seizure medication wasn’t working. “I asked what time the seizure occurs,” he said, “and with several dogs it was at one or two in the morning. Your chi circulates through your meridians and through your liver channel in the early morning. In Eastern medicine the liver controls seizures, and because of alternative medicine I could see the correlation between the two. By adding herbal combinations along with anti-seizure medication, we could

ARTWATCH Christian Brown: The Hidden Hypotenuse Often the question for the artists is, “What do you do?”—meaning the viewer needs the world wrapped up in a tight little bow labeled watercolor, painter, sculptor, or something equally vague and understanding. Christian Brown is not one of those artists. His high level of craftsmanship paired with his delicate and intellectual whimsy brings a viewer in and then makes them stay there. Next month, Brown will open his second exhibition in Bend in the last two years, his previous at the Central Oregon Community College Pence Pinckney Gallery. This show, titled “The Hidden Hypotenuse,” is an eclectic mix of copper masks, tools, tapestry, drawings, prints and more in his series of “Unpainted Paintings,” in which he



"All these different facets of the disease, in Western medicine they are unrelated and in Chinese they are related to give you a picture of the imbalance." —Dr. Scott Shaw

Dr. Scott Shaw, Westside Pet Hospital ’m a very scientific person. You have to prove something to me to believe,” Veterinarian Dr. Scott Shaw said as he described his first exposure to holistic medicine. “I had to take a leap of faith at first.” Shaw had a few veterinary cases in which traditional Western medicine didn’t provide a cure. “I tried alternative medicine and it worked. Not all things can be proved through scientific method,” Shaw said confidently, as he sat back in the black leather couch inside his practice at Westside Pet Hospital. It all started with a girl. When Shaw was in sixth grade a girl invited him horseback riding; he enjoyed it so much that he started taking lessons. Eventually his family moved from San Jose to a rural area outside of the city where they bought a horse. Within six years they had eight horses, a goat, cows and chickens. At that time, a lot of old-time ranchers were doing trail rides in the hills of Silicon Valley. He worked at the stable cleaning stalls and became friends with the veterinarian, and then decided to become one. “I enjoy being intellectually challenged,” said Shaw as he described why he picked his profession, “I like animals, I like being a detective and I like fixing things.”


control the seizures and eventually lower the dosage of anti-seizure medication because it can make the dog sick. It’s bad for the liver.” Shaw says this is when the light went on for him. “All these different facets of the disease, in Western medicine they are unrelated and in Chinese they are related to give you a picture of the imbalance.” Shaw went on to talk about a little Pomeranian that woke up and was paralyzed on three legs. After the owners went to a regular vet for traditional treatment and saw no improvement they went to him for acupuncture. “The next morning their dog jumped on their bed,” says Shaw. “I’m only taking a little bit of the credit, but I’d like to feel that I helped.”  SW

uses wood and metal to create elaborate designs he planned to pour paint into. But then he decided to not put the paint into them. “It was like I needed to get out of my own way to allow this work to be beautiful as it was,” he says. Now he’s gone further with the formal nature of the pieces, once again exploring the visual structure of language through the abstractness of design and pattern—a lot of which was influenced by the use of old letterpress materials in the original pieces. Brown, who moved to Bend five years ago from New York City, seems grateful and inspired by the drastic change of landscape and pace of life, with it allowing him to explore his own work, to settle into the inspirations that come when they do and following them to see where they go. This can be daunting for an artist who can put hours into their work only to have the final piece not be what

they’d intended. For Brown, this is what is wonderful about this process—or as he simply puts it, “The Mystery is worth it.” It’s also the idea behind the show’s title; perhaps the route taken was not the shortest, but it was the one that made it worth it.  SW Christian Brown: The Hidden Hypotenuse At Liberty 849 NW Wall St., Bend Reception Aug. 3, 5pm

Chefs and their Pets



Do chefs’ dogs have the refined palates of their humans? We set out to find out


By Lisa Sipe

Big Ski’s Pierogi Rich Winiarski and Finn

Finn is a 7-year-old Lab Pointer mix whose human is Rich Winiarski of Big Ski’s Pierogi. Finn’s breed is known for having a people-pleasing sweet temperament and the ability to hunt. Winiarski and Finn are adventure partners, hunting for mushrooms and hiking and fly fishing together. They have a favorite fishing hole, but we couldn’t get them to disclose the location. Winiarski told us he cooks for Finn. “He literally eats whatever I eat. I like to share.” He teases that Finn is Polish by adoption; that’s why his favorite snack is pierogi, the filled dumpling that’s a national dish of Poland. We asked Winiarski what Finn would order off of the Big Ski’s Pierogi menu and he said, “Golumpki (stuffed cabbage roll). He loves any meat but also loves cabbage, so the beef and pork combo plus cabbage is a winwin!” Try Finn’s favorite at either of the pet-friendly Big Ski’s Pierogi locations at Good Life Brewing or The Podski on Arizona Avenue.

Bethlyn’s Global Fusion

Bethlyn Rider and RB, Beetle and Rotty Chef Bethlyn Rider of Bethlyn’s Global Fusion has a small pack of pups, including RB, a 7-year-old Redbone Coonhound, Beetle, a 14-year-old Dachshund, and Rotty, an 8-year-old Border Terrier. Rider hangs out with her dogs in her backyard and takes them on long hikes. Rider said she does cook for her dogs. “RB steals our steaks and salads. Caesar salad is his favorite, and of course, Sunday night family time with the dogs and popcorn.” If her dogs could order from her menu, Rider thinks they would order, “pulled pork tacos, a Cuban sandwich and a Japanese nori salad.” The patio at Bethlyn’s Global Fusion is pet-friendly.

Sunny Yoga Kitchen

Amy and Courtney Wright and Moki Co-owners of Sunny Yoga Kitchen, Amy and Courtney Wright, have Moki, a 10-yearold water-obsessed Heeler-Terrier mix. They said, “We love to spend our days off with the handsome guy.” On days off they head to the mountains for hiking, camping, trail running and canoeing. Moki perks up when Amy is in the kitchen. “I don’t cook for him, but I do give him scraps of fruits or vegetables I might be prepping for a meal.” With that, it makes sense Moki’s favorite snack is tomatoes. When asked what Moki would order off of the Sunny Yoga Kitchen menu, Amy said, “He would order the Burmese pork bowl, no doubt. Because we only feed him vegetables and fruit if it’s ‘human food,’ whenever I’m cooking meat he drools like crazy.” The Burmese pork bowl is pork with sambal chilis, garlic, ginger, onions and cilantro served over rice and topped with a sunny-side-up egg. Sunny Yoga Kitchen’s sidewalk patio is pet-friendly.

Brother Jon’s Alehouse and Loyauté Josh Podwils and Ranger

When we asked Josh Podwils if he cooks for his dog, Ranger, he said, “not really.” That’s no surprise—how would he have time? Podwils is the executive chef at Brother Jon’s Alehouse and produces monthly French-inspired pop-up dinners at Loyauté. Ranger is a very shy, 19-month-old Mini Australian Shepherd with one blue and one brown eye. Podwils said, “I like to hang out with Ranger at my in-laws’ 3-acre farm, where there’s lots of room to run and have adventures with his dog friends, Zeke and Hazel.” When Ranger isn’t herding his furry friends, his favorite snack is chicken jerky or rawhide chews. What would Ranger order from the Brother Jon’s Alehouse menu? Podwils said, “Filet mignon with mashed potatoes and gravy.”

Craft Kitchen & Brewery Opens Food Cart

If you miss eating at Craft Kitchen & Brewery, they’re back! They’ve added a food cart to the brewery on Layton Avenue. “Our food cart is one of the biggest in Central Oregon, at 29 feet long,” said owner Courtney Stevens. “Because of the size we are able to execute most of our menu from the old location. We offer our brisket and burnt ends, fresh every meal period, so that means we do not reheat it. Our pork and sweet potatoes are also smoked every meal, which allows us to offer our customers variety and quality in every dish. We still have our shrimp and oyster Po’ Boys, too.” The cart is open Wednesday through Sunday. Craft Kitchen & Brewery 62988 Layton Ave #103, Bend 541-668-1766

Food Preservation Hotline Open

It can happen to anyone. You buy too many ripe strawberries so you try your hand at canning. Once in the jars you wonder if they are sealed properly, and if they are, how long will they last? Have no fear: the food preservation toll-free hotline is open from Oregon State University Extension Service. “There is a tremendous amount of misinformation on the internet, so it’s hard to figure out what is reliable and what is unsafe,” said Jeanne Brandt, Master Food Preserver program coordinator. “Our volunteers know we have reliable, research-based information and they can guide people to success.” Food Preservation Hotline Mon.-Fri. 9am-4pm until Oct. 12 800-354-7319

Wood-Fire Roasted Beans at Bohemian Roastery Coffee beans have been roasted over fire for centuries, but modern technology has made it so almost all beans are roasted using industrial machines. Bohemian Roastery built a custom roaster so it could slow roast beans in small batches using seasoned hardwood. To try a cup of coffee or cold brew nitro coffee made with wood-fire roasted beans visit the roastery at the corner of Cook Avenue and 8th Street in Tumalo. Bohemian Roastery 877-797-4330


Do chefs dogs have a culinary advantage? Do they dine beyond the kibble and get special chef-made meals? Do they get leftovers at their humans’ restaurants? In honor of the Dog Days issue, we did some investigating to find out.

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic






Special Guest: Jonathan Bourke Trio

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: Yes, there are

comic book movies galore, but once again Marvel manages to make the genre feel fresh and full of life. With charismatic performances from Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, the superhero shenanigans feel effortless and obscenely entertaining. In Marvel we trust. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

THE EQUALIZER 2: Denzel Washington

returns in his first-ever sequel to a movie no one was really that excited about. When his best friend is killed, ex-government assassin Robert McCall goes on a killing spree that would make The Punisher proud. For die-hard fans of Denzel only. See full review on p 41. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

THE FIRST PURGE: The fourth film in the



franchise takes aim at the MAGA movement in what could have been a biting satire but instead is just another solid film in an already half-baked series. If the filmmakers wrote a truly fearless script, these films could be so much more. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

HEARTS BEAT LOUD: A painfully charming dramedy overabundant in beautiful and heartwarming scenes when it could have been a cheesy and schmaltzy nightmare. The best father/ daughter movie about starting a band that’s ever been made. Or the only one ever made? Possibly. Sisters Movie House, Tin Pan Theater


HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: SUMMER VACATION: From the creative team behind


“Samurai Jack” and “Dexter’s Lab” comes another goofy and fun animated adventure featuring all of the classic Universal Monsters. There are plenty of fart jokes for the kiddos, while the adults can enjoy the heartwarming look at inclusion and empathy. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

THE INCREDIBLES 2: The long-delayed

sequel to the animated classic is filled with gorgeous visuals and action sequences which tend to hide the filmmaker’s obvious objectivist leanings. Audiences not trying to find philosophy in their cartoons will be delighted by the groundbreaking “Incredibles 2.” Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

OCEAN’S 8: With a cast featuring phenomenal talent including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson and Rihanna, it’s easy to forget about George Clooney and his crew of thieves. The film is another easy-going and lightweight heist comedy in a time in which another entry is always welcome. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX SICARIO: Day of the Soldado: A nail-biting

thriller focused on the American government’s attempt to eradicate the Mexican drug cartels as they shift from smuggling drugs to people. With typically excellent performances from Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, “Soldado” never lets up on the intensity for a single moment. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

SKYSCRAPER: It’s “The Towering Inferno” meets “Die Hard” starring The Rock. There’s more to it than that, but I think that should be enough for anyone who loves action movies and Mr. Dwayne Johnson…and explosions big enough to be seen from space. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema SWEET COUNTRY: A powerful and shattering look at the current state of life for the Aboriginal people in Australia, as a thriller. Beautifully shot and acted, “Sweet Country” deserves to have as many eyes as possible on its beautiful imagery. Sisters Movie House

WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?: It’s about time that we had a movie focused on Mister Rogers and all the good he did the world. This documentary doesn’t really try to find his dark side, but maybe not every documentary needs to dive into heady territory. Instead it’s a reminder how special the man really was.

Florida Man, Disney A to Z and Scandalous Behavior By Jared Rasic Robyn van Swank

In Pod We Trust: There’s a new study that says over 180 million Americans are listening to podcasts every month, which means I’m probably not sharing anything with you all that you haven’t already found for yourself. But, maybe since I’m into some pretty weirdly diverse things, I can shed a flickering bare bulb on some pretty cool stuff. Whenever you hear a crazy story on the news about someone taking bath salts and eating a face or a naked dude fighting an alligator, nine times out of 10 the crime is perpetrated by “Florida Man.” Just in case you’re like me and fascinated by the endless amount of shenanigans in Florida, there’s a perfect podcast for us: “Felonious Florida.” The podcast is currently looking at two unsolved cases from the Sunshine State. Just when you think you have a handle on where the true crime story is headed, the facts zigzag in staggeringly unpredictable ways. If true crime is just a little too heavy for the summer months, there’s another great podcast called “Inside the Disney Vault” that analyzes every Disney release in chronological order. The hosts are filled with useless Disney facts and they dive deeply into each release, giving you musical theater nerds one of the most fun new ‘casts of the year.

It’s so hot outside. Not the good kind of hot, but the muggy, all-day sweat fest that is July in Central Oregon. I’m normally an indoor kid to begin with, so I mostly compensate by drinking lots of mint juleps by my air conditioner while listening to podcasts and streaming goofy things from Netflix as my cat looks on in confusion. Here are a few of the things I’ve been enjoying in my deep, dark cave of an apartment.

Wet Dogs Rock

By David Sword


5 paddle spots for pups in Central Oregon By Nicole Vulcan

Nicole Vulcan

The Phil’s Trail network is a must-do for MTB noobs and visitors to Bend. Yoda, a dog of the Source, dares you to share his #dogsonboats photo on Instagram. It’s been done a few times before.

Deschutes River Pros: Start out at the dog park at Riverbend Park to let your dog get nice and worn out swimming and running with his brethren before loading onto your watercraft. This may reduce the skittish movements he makes, which can rock your boat and get you wet when you don’t wanna be. Cons: Lots of obstacles in the way of unicorn floaties and hyperactive SUPers. You and your cute #dogonboat may also be the subject of some tourist’s Instagram post.

Devils Lake Pros: If your dog’s the curious type, the clear, greenblue water will give her plenty of fodder for contemplation of the lake’s rainbow trout. Plus, easy access to the lake from the Cascade Lakes Highway. With a Northwest Forest Pass, camping at one of the stellar sites is free. Cons: Parking can get hectic as the hiking season on South Sister ramps up.

Cultus Lake Pros: A trail circumambulating the lake, with lots of shade, can help your pup get out the wiggles. Paddle

If you have yet to try it out, Bend-based Ruffwear offers some stellar tips for standup paddling with your dog on its website, courtesy of Ruffwear Ambassador Maria Christina Schultz. Tips include: Opt for a life jacket for your dog—mostly to

to the other side of the lake and you’ll be greeted by plenty of fellow dogs-on-boaters, who might even share a beer with you. Cons: Heavy weekend traffic.

Prineville Reservoir Pros: Fish abound year-round, and there’s even a fish cleaning station—kind of a dog’s favorite place to lurk, hoping someone makes a boo-boo and drops a scrap or two. The reservoir is a whopping 3,000 acres—plenty of space to spread out to swim, soak and paddle. Cons: Motor boats are allowed and people waterski and wakeboard here frequently, so if your dog is the nervous type, this might be too much moto-activity.

Suttle Lake Pros: The Suttle Lodge is pet-friendly—meaning your dog can hang with you while you nosh or sip beers in the boathouse or restaurant. If you stay over, you can also access the Lodge’s own fleet of paddle equipment. Cons: Motor boats allowed. Also, word of warning: the nearby Scout Lake doesn’t allow dogs at all. SW

have something to grab onto if you need to get your pup back onto your watercraft. (Pro tip: a dog’s harness works just fine for this too.) Trim your dog’s nails to cut down on scratches on your boat. Add traction pads or deck pads if you’re using a paddleboard, to avoid the slips that can send you and your pup into the drink.

45 VOLUME 22  ISSUE 30  /  JULY 26, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

It’s not just a novelty intended to get tourists to snap photos of you as you pass by the Old Mill. While some dogs won’t ever get the hang of it, other pups love nothing more than getting close to some water-loving wildlife while you’re paddling them aboard a watercraft. In honor of the Dog Days of Summer, the dogs of the Source recommend the following paddle spots, right here in Central Oregon.

Phil’s Trail

The tried and true for Bend mountain biking


t’s where it all started—all 400 miles of it—the most famous and popular single track in Bend. Named after Phil Meglasson, one of the insightful few who built trails for locals back in the 1980s, the Phil’s complex is ground zero for the “fast and flowy” nature of Central Oregon mountain bike trails. Phil’s Trail is iconic and considered a “must do.” You can approach via trails at the Phil’s trailhead, from midway via FS Road 300, from Green Gate off Century Drive via Storm King, or from other trails including South Fork, Skyliners or Sector 16. Most do link-ups of other trails for a more robust ride, but however you piece your Phil’s day together, it makes for a stellar Central Oregon MTB experience. Directions: Paved access to the trailhead is only 3 miles from downtown. Drive or ride west up Galveston Avenue, which morphs into Skyliners Road. Passing Mt. Washington Drive, if you are pedaling, you can jump on the paved path called the West Bend Trail, on the left-hand side of Skyliners. The paved turns to doubletrack at the Skyline Ranch junction. Follow said dirt until it takes a left-hand turn at the entry to Phil’s, staying on single-track (Marvin’s Garden trail) to the parking lot. Cars: simply follow Skyliners to the trailhead sign. From the trailhead, ride west on Ben’s trail to FS Road 300, or Kent’s, to the Phil’s intersection. The lower section of Phil’s is one-way (downhill). Phil’s is a two-way trail from FS Road 300 to where Kent’s intersects. Above FS Road 300, the upper section of Phil’s (called Helipad) is a bit more challenging, but worth the effort. Commitment Level: 1-2 hours. More if you “explore.” Sweat Level: Low to Moderate Stoke Level: High

Natural World

The Nature of Our Planet Earth By Jim Anderson 47

1. Birthing aphids: Those tiny garden pests that suck the life out of landscaping and veggie plants can be a beautiful sight if you happen to be at the right place, in the right light, when they are giving birth to their live progeny — no metamorphysis for these insects.



2. Crab spiders wait in ambush for their prey by hiding in flowers, but you’re in the wrong colored flower this time, honey! 3. Wolf Spiders often wait in ambush for their prey. With their agile ability they can run down a mouse or a louse to get what they’re after. Their eyesight is faultless too. 4. Yes, dear, the adult, female black widow spider does have an hour glass-shaped warning for us to see on the ventral side of its abdomen, but the juvenile doesn’t; she’s just all black and still deadly. And yes, they use their ultra-strong silken web (which is the strongest substance on Earth) to trap mice and other delectable creatures, which they kill and turn to a liquid with venom, sucking it into their stomachs. Ugh! What a way to go.



5. Now, if you were a female jumping spider, how could you not fall for that handsome, big-eyed guy? 6. Everyone has to have a way of making a living, that’s a female robber fly (with her ovipositor sticking out her back-end; not a stinger) sucking the life out of a baby grasshopper she captured. 7. No one gets off scott free. Even though the robber fly is a powerful insect predator, that tiny mite is out to get her share as well, sucking the life out of the insect killer.

Still, to be honest, there are times when we’re just going through the motions. I guess it’s natural that it isn’t as exciting as it was that first year or so. Maybe we just have to accept it. there anything we can do? (We do have date nights and try to experiment with new things.) —Ho-Humming Somewhat It’s like buying your dream house—and then living in it for 12 years. You still love it—but you don’t jump up and down and yell “Woo-hoo! We live here!” the 10,044th time you walk through your door. The good news is, there’s a way to perk up the sexual excitement level in a long-term relationship, and it doesn’t involve attending parties where they have a bowl of keys at the door. You just need to get back to really being there while you’re having sex. This means truly feeling—that is, really being present for—the moment-by-moment sensations, like you did the very first time you got together. You know...back before you started (let’s be honest) sexual multitasking—running through your to-do list while getting it on—and your sex face started to become a yawn. Your husband looks up from, um, down there: “Oh, sorry—was I boring you?” Clinical psychologist Lori Brotto, who researches female sexual desire and arousal issues, finds that a practice called “mindfulness”—with Eastern spiritual origins—seems to be “an effective way of re-routing one’s focus ... onto the sensations that are unfolding in the moment.” Mindfulness, which is also a form of meditation, involves bringing your attention to the immediate moment. This isn’t to say you have to meditate to have better sex. However, one of the mindfulness meditation techniques involves scanning your body with your mind, focusing your attention on individual parts, and observing the sensations in them in that moment. That’s key. So, for example, point your attention at your breathing, at the points of skin-to-skin contact between you and your husband. Notice the temperature of your skin. Hot? Cool? Do you feel tiny beads of sweat? Brotto writes in “Better Sex Through Mindfulness” that in her research, “when the women learn to be right where they are when with a partner, rather than in the myriad other places that their mind escapes to during

sex, they start to experience sexual contact with their partner in a way that perhaps they had not experienced for months, years, or decades.” In other words, yes, there’s still hope to hear animalistic screaming in your bedroom again—and not just when your husband pulls on the oven mitts and holds the cat down so you can clip her toenails without losing an eye.

In The Mood For Shrug I’m a 35-year-old guy. My fiancee broke up with me a year ago. I was devastated. We don’t have any contact now, but I still love her. I haven’t been on one Amy Alkon date since our breakup, and I reminisce about her constantly. My guy friends are like, “Move on, dude. Get a life!” But honestly, that’s not that helpful. What is the best way to get over an ex besides time? —Stuck That which does not kill you makes you crap company on poker night. “Jeez, man, quit crying on the cards!” Your buddies surely mean well in taking the “just say the magic words!” approach— “Get over it! Lotta fish in the sea, man!”— but you’re trying to recover from a breakup, not summon a genie. Lingering feelings of love for your fiancee are the problem. As for a solution, research by cognitive psychologist Sandra J.E. Langeslag suggests you can decrease those feelings through “negative reappraisal” of your ex-partner— basically looking back and trying to see all the “bad” in her. For example, focus on her annoying habits and rude and stupid things she said and did. When Langeslag’s research participants mentally trashed their ex-partner, it did diminish the love they felt for their ex... yay! However, there was a side effect: All of this negative thinking—not surprisingly— made participants feel pretty bummed out. But helpfully, Langeslag came around with a second strategy that helped them block out the feelbad: distraction—answering questions “about positive things unrelated to the breakup or the partner (e.g., What is your favorite food? Why?).” Probably an even better source of distraction is turning to what Langeslag calls a “secondary task” (like playing a video game). Keep up the negativity and the distracting secondary tasks and before long, you should find yourself ready for a level-three distraction: losing yourself in a forest of Tinder hussies.

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Since 1358, the city of Paris has used the Latin motto *Fluctuat nec mergitur*, which can be translated as “She is tossed by the waves but does not sink.” I propose that we install those stirring words as your rallying cry for the next few weeks. My analysis of the astrological omens gives me confidence that even though you may encounter unruly weather, you will sail on unscathed. What might be the metaphorical equivalent of taking seasick pills?

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The Spanish word *delicadeza* can have several meanings in English, including “delicacy” and “finesse.” The Portuguese word *delicadeza* has those meanings, as well as others, including “tenderness,” “fineness,” “suavity,” “respect,” and “urbanity.” In accordance with current astrological omens, I’m making it your word of power for the next three weeks. You’re in a phase when you will thrive by expressing an abundance of these qualities. It might be fun to temporarily give yourself the nickname Delicadeza. SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Uninformed scientists scorn my oracles. Reductionist journalists say I’m just another delusional fortuneteller. Materialist cynics accuse me of pandering to people’s superstition. But I reject those naive perspectives. I define myself as a psychologically astute poet who works playfully to liberate my readers’ imaginations with inventive language, frisky stories, and unpredictable ideas. Take a cue from me, Scorpio, especially in the next four weeks. Don’t allow others to circumscribe what you do or who you are. Claim the power to characterize yourself. Refuse to be squeezed into any categories, niches, or images -- except those that squeeze you the way you like to be squeezed.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “I have no notion of loving people by halves; it is not my nature. My attachments are always excessively strong.” So said Sagittarian novelist Jane Austen. I don’t have any judgment about whether her attitude was right or wrong, wise or ill-advised. How about you? Whatever your philosophical position might be, I suggest that for the next four weeks you activate your inner Jane Austen and let that part of you shine -- not just in relation to whom and what you love but also with everything that rouses your passionate interest. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you’re due for some big, beautiful, radiant zeal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “There are truths I haven’t even told God,” confessed Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector. “And not even myself. I am a secret under the lock of seven keys.” Are you harboring any riddles or codes or revelations that fit that description, Capricorn? Are there any sparks or seeds or gems that are so deeply concealed they’re almost lost? If so, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to bring them up out their dark hiding places. If you’re not quite ready to show them to God, you should at least unveil them to yourself. Their emergence could spawn a near-miracle or two. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): What are your goals for your top two alliances or friendships? By that I mean, what would you like to accomplish together? How do you want to influence and inspire each other? What effects do you want your relationships to have on the world? Now maybe you’ve never

even considered the possibility of thinking this way. Maybe you simply want to enjoy your bonds and see how they evolve rather than harnessing them for greater goals. That’s fine. No pressure. But if you are interested in shaping your connections with a more focused sense of purpose, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to do so.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In Janet Fitch’s novel *White Oleander*, a character makes a list of “twenty-seven names for tears,” including “*Heartdew. Griefhoney. Sadwater. Die tränen. Eau de douleur. Los rios del corazón*.” (The last three can be translated as “The Tears,” “Water of Pain,” and “The Rivers of the Heart.”) I invite you to emulate this playfully extravagant approach to the art of crying. The coming weeks will be en excellent time to celebrate and honor your sadness, as well as all the other rich emotions that provoke tears. You’ll be wise to feel profound gratitude for your capacity to feel so deeply. For best results, go in search of experiences and insights that will unleash the full cathartic power of weeping. Act as if empathy is a superpower.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be extra polite and deferential. Cultivate an exaggerated respect for the status quo. Spend an inordinate amount of time watching dumb TV shows while eating junk food. Make sure you’re exposed to as little natural light and fresh air as possible. JUST KIDDING! I lied! Ignore everything I just said! Here’s my real advice: Dare yourself to feel strong positive emotions. Tell secrets to animals and trees. Swim and dance and meditate naked. Remember in detail the three best experiences you’ve ever had. Experiment with the way you kiss. Create a blessing that surprises you and everyone else. Sing new love songs. Change something about yourself you don’t like. Ask yourself unexpected questions, then answer them with unruly truths that have medicinal effects. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your past is not quite what it seems. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to find out why -- and make the necessary adjustments. A good way to begin would be to burrow back into your old stories and unearth the half-truths buried there. It’s possible that your younger self wasn’t sufficiently wise to understand what was really happening all those months and years ago, and as a result distorted the meaning of the events. I suspect, too, that some of your memories aren’t actually your own, but rather other people’s versions of your history. You may not have time to write a new memoir right now, but it might be healing to spend a couple of hours drawing up a revised outline of your important turning points. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): One of the most famously obtuse book-length poems in the English language is Robert Browning’s *Sordello*, published in 1840. After studying it at length, Alfred Tennyson, who was Great Britain’s Poet Laureate from 1850 to 1892, confessed, “There were only two lines in it that I understood.” Personally, I did better than Tennyson, managing to decipher 18 lines. But I bet that if you read this dense, multi-layered text in the coming weeks, you would do better than me and Tennyson. That’s because you’ll be at the height of your cognitive acumen. Please note: I suggest you use your extra intelligence for more practical purposes than decoding obtuse texts. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Ready for your financial therapy session? For your first assignment, make a list of the valuable qualities you have to offer the world, and write a short essay about why the world should abundantly reward you for them. Assignment #2: Visualize what it feels like when your valuable qualities are appreciated by people who matter to you. #3: Say this: “I am a rich resource that ethical, reliable allies want to enjoy.” #4: Say this: “My scruples can’t be bought for any amount of money. I may rent my soul, but I’ll never sell it outright.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): As you wobble and stumble into the New World, you shouldn’t pretend you understand more than you actually do. In fact, I advise you to play up your innocence and freshness. Gleefully acknowledge you’ve got a lot to learn. Enjoy the liberating sensation of having nothing to prove. That’s not just the most humble way to proceed; it’ll be your smartest and most effective strategy. Even people who have been a bit skeptical of you before will be softened by your vulnerability. Opportunities will arise because of your willingness to be empty and open and raw.
