Sage-grouse provision removed from defense bill—but a fight remains over at Interior


neaking unrelated legislation into a seemingly simple bill is nothing new. Legislators use this time-honored tradition to sweeten deals, and pass legislation that wouldn’t pass on its own Sometimes this tactic is used for the nefarious reason of getting something that is unpalatable or difficult passed undercover. In the case of one of the latest versions of the National Defense Authorization Act, that’s exactly the kind of secretive legislation that if passed could have put the greater sage-grouse at risk. That’s what could have happened if a provision, added by a congressman from Utah, had not been stripped from the final version of the NDAA last week. Congressman Rob Bishop (R-Utah) sponsored an amendment to the NDAA which would have barred the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from listing the greater sage-grouse under the Endangered Species Act for 10 years, and would have cut out incentives for states in implementing state and federal sagegrouse conservation. As we have reported before, the health of the greater sage-grouse, and its habitat, is a marker of the wider health of the ecosystem. In 2015, 11 states, including Oregon, collaborated with an unprecedented number of stakeholders—including ranchers and environmental groups—to create a sage-grouse management plan aimed to keep the bird off the Endangered Species list. That compromise, according to the Western Values Project, was the greatest land conservation effort in U.S. history—and should be allowed to continue. Yet, special interest lobbying never rests.

Last week, the House passed a version of the Defense Authorization Act that did not contain Bishop’s rider. While numerous groups hope to keep the sage-grouse off the Endangered Species list in the first place, barring it from the possibility of being added would have been a dangerous precedent. We agree with the statement by Jayson O’Neill, deputy director of the Western Values Project, who said, “Rep. Bishop was selling snake oil, trying to disguise special interest favors as riders in must-pass legislation, but the American public and the rest of Congress were too smart to buy his poison pills. This resounding defeat sends a clear message to those working to undermine the West’s sage-grouse deal: stop doing the bidding of special interests at the expense of our wildlife and our public lands.” Still, the effort to protect the greater sage-grouse—and other species that require protection—isn’t over. Last year, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke— who’s been accused of pandering to the oil and gas industry, asked the Bureau of Land Management to review the greater sage-grouse conservation plans that had so recently been agreed upon by those various stakeholders across the West. The BLM is taking public comments through Aug. 2 on that review. In short, all the work done in Oregon and the wider West could be undone by the actions of one Secretary whose loyalties appear to lie with short-term commercial interests over the long-term health of land. Like so many issues before us in these current times, we can, for a moment, celebrate that members of the U.S. House saw through that dangerous rider to the defense bill. But over at Interior, the fight continues. SW

Idling in traffic is one thing. Idling without actually going anywhere is another. More and more in Bend, I see people sitting in their running cars, doodling around on their phones (or in one case, filing her nails). In winter it’s for the heater, and now as it gets increasingly hotter, it’s for the air con. Do these people understand what they are doing to the climate, to our air quality and the environment with more drilling for oil? It’s getting hotter for a reason! Please, say something if you see this behavior—you have every right to since we live on one planet.

Don’t Text and Drive

In a three-hour period, cops wrote 28 citations for cell phone use By Chris Miller


n July 26 the City of Bend Police sent out officers to conduct an enhanced distracted driving detail, aimed at educating the driving public on cell phone usage. The goal: to reduce the number of incidents caused by distracted driving and the use of cell phones. I rode shotgun with Sgt. Eric Hagen of Bend PD through the three-hour tour, which yielded 28 citations for operating a motor vehicle while using a mobile electronic device, six warnings for the same infraction and 14 warnings for other observed traffic violations. Hagen and I, along with other officers in police SUVs, motorcycles and cruisers, posted up at the intersection of Southeast Ninth Street and Wilson Avenue in the blazing 90 degree-plus heat.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2016 there were 3,450 deaths and 391,000 injuries associated with distracted driving The sting got off to a slow start before Hagen handed out his first $265 ticket for talking on a cell phone— the second ticket the driver received in a week—the spotter was calling out drivers as fast as the officers could complete their stops. The reaction Hagen received when stopping drivers were as varied as the drivers themselves. The first person was visibly angered by the fine. His large truck was shaking from side to side as he tried telling the sergeant his work depended on talking on the phone. The next driver we saw passed the police SUV with their head down, clearly staring at the phone’s screen. Hagen pulled in behind the car, but waited to pull the

driver over to see what, if any, other infractions they might commit. The car almost went into the bike lane, causing Hagen to remark that if a rider were there, we’d have a different situation on our hands. The female driver was friendly—you could see her smile in the side-view mirror—as she explained she was using the phone’s map feature. Hagen has the demeanor of a nurse when he approaches the drivers. As he put it, he treats people the way he’d want someone treating his parents or his children. He didn’t ticket everyone we stopped, even though he could have. For example, he gave out a warning for construction workers whose company rig had trailers without working lights. During the previous distracted driving detail, Hagen said the officers couldn’t keep up with the spotter calling out infractions. This time was slower, Hagen said— perhaps a sign people are getting the message that driving distracted is serious. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2016 there were 3,450 deaths and 391,000 injuries associated with distracted driving. The NHTSA says there are approximately 481,000 people using their phone while driving during daylight hours. In 2015, data from the NHTSA shows drivers in

the 16 to 24 age group are considered to be the most distracted. According to the data, 4.6 percent of drivers in this cohort drive with phones to their ears and 4.9 percent were found visibly manipulating handheld devices. So why does all of this matter? There are arguments across the board that driving while using your cell phone is no more distracting than arguing with a passenger, or fiddling with the radio. But get this: in July 2011, male teen was riding his bike on the sidewalk adjacent to Southeast Reed Market Road. At the same time, cops say a La Pine man was driving his full-sized truck, pulling a trailer—and texting in part to the person sitting right next to him. In his distracted state, the driver didn’t see the car in front of him stop, so he tried to avoid the car, but instead crashed directly into 16-year-old Forrest Cepeda, killing him. The driver, Erik Conn, was sentenced in 2012 to more than two years in prison for the accident and had his license permanently revoked. Cepeda’s memory will live on due to the memorial sign on Reed Market that reads, “Don’t Text and Drive.” Cops in Bend hope people will heed its message and avoid another tragedy. SW

The Grief That Does Not Speak I

magine you’re 70 years old. Or 80. Maybe your spouse has just passed away from chronic illness, leaving you with mountains of medical debt on a remote property in the outskirts of Crook County. Many of your friends have passed away, and without any of your children nearby to help with daily chores or grocery runs, the dishes pile up. You barely eat. Maybe you never had children. Isolated, you grieve for your partner—but basic necessities come first. You’re out of options. For 12 years, Angela Jensen worked as a grief counselor for Partners in Care hospice in Bend. A social worker by training, she counseled surviving spouses and family members of the departed—something she says was very difficult to do given the extenuating circumstances that many older adults find themselves in after losing a partner. “You can’t do grief counseling for someone who has just lost half their income,” says Jensen. “They don’t have a driver’s license—because [their spouse] always drove—and they live in La Pine.” This is the reality for a growing number of Americans. The average life expectancy in the U.S. grew from 68.2 years in 1950 to 78.8 years in 2015, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A 2010 Pew Research study on baby boomers found that 10,000 Americans turn 65 years old every day, a trend that will continue through 2029. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, 15.5 percent of Oregonians are age 65 and older. By 2020, that number is projected to increase to 20 percent. Central Oregon’s numbers are even higher, with 23.6 percent in Crook County—one of the highest in the state. The issues that older adults face are unique to their demographic and often mental health care providers are not equipped to address them adequately. Oregon has the fourth-highest rate of senior suicides in the U.S., according a 2018 America’s Health Rankings report. In the past four years, suicides increased 21 percent from 20.7 to 25.1 deaths per

By Keely Damara

As Oregonians live longer, a mental health care shortage for seniors becomes a growing problem 100,000 adults age 65 and older. In more rural parts of Central Oregon, that rate increases to over 27 per 100,000. Connecting older adults with mental health services Jensen was hired in August 2015 as a full-time contract employee with the Central Oregon Health Council, where she works as an older adult behavioral health specialist. She fills one of two full-time positions in Central Oregon, funded by the Oregon Health Authority’s Older Adult Behavioral Health Initiative, a state-funded effort to improve caregiver training and accessibility to services for older adults and adults with disabilities. Mary Callison, also a social worker by training, fills the other full-time position, serving 60,000 adults living throughout incorporated and unincorporated communities in Jefferson, Deschutes and Crook counties. Older Adult Behavioral Specialists are tasked with three primary functions: workforce development and community education, facilitating complex case consultations, and coordinating various agencies in behavioral health, aging services and primary care providers. Workforce development includes finding out the needs of caregivers, ranging from Meals on Wheels staff to doctors and orderlies, and training them to better address the unique needs of seniors. For example, the substance abuse screening questionnaire that many doctors ask patients to fill out before a checkup aren’t detailed enough

to identify complex scenarios, the specialists say. “The questions that they ask don’t always translate for the older adults,” says Jensen. “Four ounces of wine per night may be nothing for you and me, but if you’re on 12 to 13 different types of medication, it is—and most people can’t pour a four-ounce glass of wine.” Another challenge for adults suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia is that behavioral health care traditionally doesn’t cover seeing a therapist for degenerative brain diseases, since they aren’t cognitive disorders—even if they disrupt cognitive functions. “Now, are you depressed because you have dementia? Are you suicidal because you have dementia? That we can work on,” says Jensen. “But Medicare limits the number of mental health diagnoses that somebody can be seen for and, guess what? Being mildly depressed isn’t one of them.” The fastest-growing segment of Oregon’s population is age 85 and older. The second fastest growing is 100 and older, according to a report from Portland State University’s Institute on Aging. Crook County has the largest population of individuals 85 years and older in Central Oregon. Of the 22,000 people in Crook County, about 10,000 live within the city limits of Prineville, the only incorporated city. That leaves around 12,000 people living in unincorporated towns and beyond scattered throughout the county. “They are tucked away, they are

isolated, they are those farmers and ranchers that are stuck in the canyon,” says Jensen. “They moved there, maybe a decade ago, never realizing that maybe they’d be diagnosed with some sort of chronic condition.” According to a study by the Oregon Health Authority, Crook and Deschutes counties have higher suicide rates for adults 65 and older than Oregon overall. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, 23.6 percent of Crook County’s 20,978 residents are age 65 and over. The suicide rate for adults 65 and older is 27.3 per 100,000 in Crook County—the Oregon average is 22.9 and the U.S. average is 16.6, according to a 2018 report from the United Health Foundation. “With these incredibly high numbers in our own backyard, we have folks who are so isolated, or can’t get to resources, because of transportation and finances,” says Jensen. The Friendship Line The Central Oregon Health Council recently partnered with Dr. Patrick Abore to bring a crisis hotline targeting older adults to Central Oregon. While the hotline has been around for 45 years, the new partnership brings outgoing call services to Central Oregon, allowing seniors to receive regularly scheduled check-in calls at no charge from trained staff and volunteers at the Friendship Line. The Friendship Line webpage, housed on the Institute on Aging website, leads with a quote from William Shakespeare, resting underneath a

Beats Antique blends sounds from cultures spanning the globe to communicate through music and passion By Anne Pick Submitted.

Unlike this photo, the music of Beats Antique is anything but black and white.

in his own way—complete comprehension through music and shared emotions. In addition to performing at the Great Pyramids, Beats Antique has performed all across the planet. When we spoke, Cappel had just wrapped rehearsal for the band’s performance the next night

“We really cherish our audience. We really love the people that support us. It’s not an everyday occurrence that you get to do what you love and thrive that way.” —TOMMY CAPPEL, BEATS ANTIQUE traditional music and understood the concept of the song they would be singing together with Beats Antique from the translator’s description. The Egyptian band sat in with Beats Antique, who described the song they would sing together, “Veil of Tears,” as being about the death of an experience inside you that you can use to rise above. The singer of the Egyptian band nodded, “Ah, yes,”

at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colo. The historic venue ranks among Cappel’s favorites he’s ever played. “It’s an honor to perform at Red Rocks,” Cappel says. “There are some places that are great venues or great cities, or the crowd is really into it, whatever it is. Red Rocks is different. It has this energy to it that you cannot deny. It’s very rare for a place to contain

everything that Red Rocks does because it has all of this history and all of these artists who’ve played there.” Cappel continues on to describe Bend as one of his favorite places to perform as well. He loves the coffee in Bend—it’s his favorite thing—and describes the crowd as, “off the hook.” They’ve performed at iconic venues like The Fillmore in San Francisco, and in foreign countries including Australia, China and Russia, as well as all over the United States—and they still love coming to Bend as often as possible. “We feel really fortunate to be able to do this and also to get to see and meet all of these people who are so rad and different,” Cappel says. “We really cherish our audience. We really love the people that support us. It’s not an everyday occurrence that you get to do what you love and thrive that way.” For some, the thought of not only

performing music that originated in another culture, but to blend multiple genres can be daunting. For Cappel and the rest of Beats Antique, they credit their style and the ability to mix various genres of music to intuition. “Certain genres and style and contexts go together and some don’t,” Cappel says. “It kind of narrows itself down when someone has an idea and we can flesh it out. At first, it’s sort of trial and error and we try to match up different styles so we’re not strictly one thing. It’s definitely a group effort. Each one of us can bring an idea to the table and we vet it. If there’s a performance element or a melody or a rhythm that’s part of the idea and then one of the three of us takes that, and that’s when we become producers.” The last Beats Antique album debuted in 2016 and they have big plans for their new material. Cappel describes the forthcoming album as having an interesting sound. They are currently working on and performing new music, which you can expect to get a taste of at their performance at the Midtown Ballroom. “It’s a little more circus-y and strange and bizarre,” Cappel says. “We’re sort of deviating— doing it Beats Antique style, but as a whole the concept of the album is a bit of the strange, a bit of the bizarre, a bit of a circus or a carnival, a bit of a celebration.”  SW

akland-based world music masters Beats Antique have built a career on blending sounds from cultures spanning the globe. The band once played a show in front of the Great Pyramids, and no, we’re not talking about the Luxor in Las Vegas. They’ve traveled the globe in search of new and interesting sounds, speaking the universal language of music. “That’s the thing,” Beats Antique drummer Tommy Cappel says. “Music doesn’t have barriers or borders or boundaries or languages. It doesn’t require anything but passion. Someone who doesn’t know what I’m saying can hear what I’m playing and understand what I’m communicating. It makes it possible to do what we do and sometimes we don’t have any words to say to each other.” Cappel continues, speaking about when the band played in front of the Great Pyramids. He said the local Egyptian band that opened for them played

I’ve Got the Blues

The inaugural Sisters Rhythm & Brews Festival supports affordable housing efforts in Central Oregon By Anne Pick


Los Lobos headlines the first Sisters Rhythm & Brews Festival, performing both nights of the event.

Affordable housing is really in desperate need in Central Oregon. We decided to partner with the local Habitat for Humanity; they are doing all of our volunteering. We’re also working with Heart of Oregon Youth Build. They’ll have a presence at the festival and will be helping us built the infrastructure pieces on Thursday.” Jenn and Joe hope the fesitval brings awareness to housing in both Sisters and all throughout Central Oregon. At the Sisters Rhythm & Brews Festival, people can listen to great music, drink beer and see what’s happening with Habitat for Humanity, and hopefully this steers money, volunteers and awareness their way. Habitat will provide a lot of dimensional lumber for festival patrons to sign

or draw on that will be used directly in the next Habitat for Humanity build. The family receiving the new home will be present at the festival. Jenn’s an electrician by trade and talks about people retiring from the trades everyday. She hopes the festival may inspire kids volunteering to get excited about trades—about working outside, about doing the work, about making money. Being able to tangibly touch something that goes into someone’s home can be a very rewarding experience, something she hopes to pass on through the festival. “I guess that’s what we’re hoping to come out of this,” Jenn says. “Hopefully we grow it and can do more good next year.”

 SOURCE  SUGGESTS THIS BOOK Pick Your Line The Snake. The Salmon. The Rogue. The Colorado. The Tuolumne. For any whitewater enthusiast, these names are like catnip. For that different breed of folk who make their living running these rivers, they’re the Holy Grail of Western whitewater. Local guide Dick Linford and his former guide partner at ECHO, Bob Volpert, have run these rivers more times than you or I ever will in our lifetimes. Fortunately, they’ve gifted those of us who would like to live vicariously through them with a new collection

of whitewater guide stories from all of these great Western rivers: ‘Halfway to Halfway and Back: More River Stories.’ These are the kind of stories you’d hear folks tell around a camp after a day on the river, watching the sun creep over the canyon walls, beer in hand. Goofy clients, funny personalities, that big drop around the bend, and runs and trips gone horribly (and hilariously) wrong—it’s all here. If you can’t get out and run big water this summer, this might just tide you over until the snows melt and the water thunders over boulders again next year.

August 24 - 26, 2018

As for the music, the festival takes an inclusive approach, which should give all festival goers the opportunity to see all of the performers at different times throughout the weekend. Most performers will play on both Friday and Saturday, with the exception of some of the Saturday daytime acts. “It kind of has a wide genre of people and acts that sort of straddle whether they should be blues or soul or funk,” Joe says. “I didn’t want to have 10 sweaty, old white guitar players. This isn’t going to be the same sort of in-the-box blues festival; we’re getting a little more variety. Curtis Salgado, who is more soul and then Down North and Hillstomp, who are very dancey. Nicki Hill, who is an amazing female vocalist and has wonderful stage presence, will be there.” “We found Hillstomp about 10 years ago and we’re big R.L. Burnside fans,” Joe says. “We have the Cederic Burnside Project coming, his grandson. He and his guitar player are driving here from Missouri, they’ll play back-to-back with Hillstomp. We were able to secure Los Lobos, who will be playing both Friday Sisters Rhythm & Brews Festival Fri. & Sat., Aug 3-4. Village Green City Park & Art Works Downtown Sisters $145/weekend pass

By Tom Beans, Dudley’s Bookshop Cafe Around the Edge In ‘Tip of the Iceberg,’ Mark Adams uses the Alaska ferry system (and float planes) to follow the famous 1899 Harriman Expedition that traced the Alaskan border from near Bellingham up to the Arctic Circle. Two of the more famous passengers on that expedition included Edward Curtis and John Muir, and they found a land faced with looming environmental issues. More than a century later, Adams finds a land struggling to adapt to climate change. A great combo of history and travelogue that does not disappoint.

ave you heard about the new music festival in Sisters? No, we’re not talking about the always amazing Sisters Folk Festival, which takes place in September, but rather the new Sisters Rhythm & Brews Festival. The new festival, organized by Joe and Jenn Rambo, puts rhythm and blues at the forefront of the musical soundscape for the weekend. The Sisters Rhythm & Brews Festival takes place on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 3 and 4, on two stages in downtown Sisters and features 20 bands. “Why the blues? Because it feels like there is a lot of singer-songwriter stuff in Central Oregon and we’re trying to mix it up,” Joe says. “The blues feels a little underserved in Central Oregon.” Joe and Jenn have both helped with the infrastructure of the Sisters Folk Festival for the past seven years. Before initiating the creation of this new festival, the two went to the Sisters Folk Festival to get their feedback. In a small town, you don’t want to ruffle any feathers and the Rambo’s say that the Folk Festival has reasonably embraced the new blues festival in Sisters. “It’s Important to us to not step on any toes,” Jenn says. “I think part of what’s really neat about the folk festival is that they’re very arts focused and support arts education. When we were thinking about developing the festival, we looked for an untapped market.

Homegrown drag shows pop up in Bend By Teafly Peterson

“…there are a lot of thirsty children out there. We want them to know there is a place for them.” —DAN YOUNG Fifteen years later, like many of us here in this community, I lament some of the changes that have come with the growth: traffic, for one, and crowds at all of my favorite cafes and swimming spots. But I will happily accept all of these inconveniences for the benefits this growth has also created—primarily a thriving LGBTQ community that feels safe and loved enough to now venture out into the world of drag. Thanks to the great work of Human Dignity Coalition, Bend’s had its share of drag shows for the last 15 years. But this August, two homegrown shows are hitting the stage, allowing our own local LGBTQ community to express themselves authentically and beautifully for the first time on their home turf. First up is “The Cult of Tuck,” an offshoot of the Bend Burlesque Company, taking place at Silver Moon Brewing on

Friday night, Aug. 3. The variety show, created by Bend Burlesque member Alex Simpson, features many new drag queens who have been working on their personas and looks for quite some time. Now they have a stage to share their characters. Simpson will host the event as his drag persona, Madam Richard Tucker. He started doing his own drag just last year. While he had been working on his look and makeup, it was an outing with a friend to the “Hey Honey” queer dance party last June that convinced Simpson that this was his Madam Richard Tucker. calling. “I was a hot mess, but I had the time of my life that night,” recalls Simpson. From there, he didn’t look back. Other Bend Burlesque members convinced Simpson to perform as his drag persona, which was met with enthusiasm and great support from the audience. Now Simpson wants to share that audience with others. Many of the acts are performing for the first time, including drag kings and even a drag queen who is not a gay man, something that can often be controversial in the gay community. There are also two non-drag acts that Simpson believes will add to the “love vibe” they are hoping to create for the LGBTQ community. The following week, you can also

catch the “Queens of the High Desert” show, put on by Lonely Fish Productions at 2nd Street Theater. Matt Vigil, the producer of the show, is a young and enthusiastic member of the ever-growing theater community, often producTeala Rae ing shows that are a little edgier and serve to celebrate pop culture such as, “Heathers: The Musical” and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Vigil and the show’s director Raechel Gilland describe the event as a variety show of developing performers who have brought unique and lovely new characters to life. Their show sounds like a beautiful and natural evolution of creativity, allowing for the performers to bring forth authentic and personal stories in a new and exciting way. The show will also feature an interview by drag queen Lady Diane Butterscotch of drag king Larry Kingley about his experiences with discovering his gender fluidity. And while many of the performers have never performed before, Gilland adds their sheer determination and hard work have been paying off and the level of performance they are bringing is inspiring and impressive. Perhaps you want in on this budding and beautiful drag scene—well, you can give it a try, too. OUT Central Oregon

ARTWATCH Willie Nelson Cover Art

At first glance at the cover art this week, you may notice right off that the portraits of legendary country musician Willie Nelson doesn’t have the typical images you might regularly see: weed, guitars, American flag bandanas. Instead, this portrait—created by Bend artist Brandon Walsh—tells a little different story, one more personal and inspired by his life. Walsh was born and raised in Idaho, with his father inspiring his love for the beloved country icon. The other inspiration for the painting: his wife Yoonmee who hails from Seoul, South Korea. When Walsh and his wife married, the theme of their wedding was, fittingly, “East meets West” and that inspiration has continued in Walsh’s work, combing both his love for his Americana

By Teafly Peterson roots and his love of his wife and her roots in Seoul. His process is unique: completely covering his canvas decoupage style with old Time and Life magazine images and vintage rodeo programs, as well as various handmade Korean papers, including old propaganda posters his mother-in-law will collect and send him from Seoul. Once the background is complete, Walsh paints his subject on top, never knowing what images from he background will show up when the painting is completed. “Its like a happy accident,” Walsh says of the process. It is not surprising to see Walsh inspired by iconic images. Before he and his wife opened their EMW Fusion food truck here in Bend, both he and Yoonmee worked as graphic designers, with Walsh spending the bulk of his career at Nike creating graphic design pieces for apparel. When visiting their popular

food truck at On Tap, you will notice this love for iconography in their approach. You will also notice that this labor of love saturates into all they do whether it is food, apparel or art—the transparent expression of love creates a new balance of harmony that one can truly find themselves understanding. Currently, Walsh is working on the final image in his series of Highwaymen portraits. Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie are already complete, and Kris Kristofferson in the works.

hosts regular kikis, or drag get-togethers, welcoming anyone who would like to try out drag for themselves. Organizer Dan Young describes the events as casual get-togethers where beginners to drag can learn new makeup techniques, get feedback and support from others and feel included in this growing community. “When I moved to Bend five years ago, you couldn’t even do this then. Now, you can and there are a lot of thirsty children out there. We want them to know there is a place for them,” says Young. Since most of the regular attendees are busy working on their acts for upcoming shows, there aren’t any meetups until fall, but you can find more information on OUT Central Oregon’s Facebook page. They also host “Oh Yessss,” a regular night at The Dogwood Cocktail Cabin on the third Thursday of the month where many folks come dressed in drag. There were times living here when I never thought this could happen in our little, isolated town. But here we are, exactly where we should be—in the midst of a growing town that is welcoming a budding LGBTQ community to safely, lovingly and inspiringly blossom in very authentic and beautiful ways.  SW



moved to Bend in the summer of 2003, the very same month an attack on a gay man outside The Grove on Bond Street shook this community, and myself, in the process. I had grown up in a very liberal part of the world—in high school, the next town over from mine was even named the “San Francisco of the East.” It was my own little bubble of inclusion and loving humans in all forms that was harshly popped the very same month I decided to make Bend my new home.

Chefs Leave Mega Yachts LITTLE BITES to Open Downtown Cafe By Lisa Sipe

The Lemon Tree dishes traditional global cuisine



hat happens when two chefs travel the world on mega yachts then decide to plant roots in Bend? They open a restaurant and express their international travel through food. Jaclyn Perez and Betsy McDonald started the Lemon Tree, a breakfast and lunch cafe located downtown on Franklin Avenue in the previous Bend Burger Company location. Sidewalk dining hugs the exterior of the building—each table topped with fresh flowers and a grass green umbrella. A vibrant lemon yellow striped awning highlights the entrance, enticing you to walk on in. The interior is bright and quaint. One side of the restaurant has a wall covered in warm brown wood panels and the opposite wall has a hand-painted mural of an arched window looking out to a courtyard with a lemon tree by local artist David Kinker. You can’t miss the dessert case filled with small lemon meringue tarts, cakes and cookies. The dining tables are covered with white linen tablecloths, wrapped in white paper and topped with fresh flowers. This cafe would be perfectly at home in Norway or France. I visited The Lemon Tree for breakfast with two friends and we sat at an inside table next to the window. Our server was attentive and immediately filled our glasses with orange rosemary water. The breakfast menu is simple, with nine international dishes to choose from. Visit Italy with the frittata, France or the Roman Empire with the French toast, New York City with a crab cake or steak benedict, Tunisia with the shakshuka (poached eggs in tomato sauce with chili peppers and onions) and Indonesia with the nasi goreng or fried rice. The breakfast special was a Southern favorite: biscuits and gravy. Pair any of those worldly meals with espresso drinks or breakfast cocktails like a mimosa, Bellini or Bloody Mary. I always have a hard time deciding what to eat for breakfast because I can’t decide between sweet or savory. I came up with a way to get both. We ordered the amaretto French toast as an appetizer. Brilliant, right? Let’s start a breakfast appetizer trend in Bend. While I was waiting for my morning appetizer to arrive, my Metolious chai latte with a shot of espresso, or what is commonly referred to as a dirty hippy, came with a powdered sugar covered cookie. The delicate amaretto cookie was an unexpected nice touch. Our French toast came topped with fresh berries, slivered almonds, drizzled with an amaretto syrup and

Dessert Bar Opens at Foxtail Move over breakfast and lunch, Foxtail Bakeshop & Kitchen is open Friday and Saturday evenings for its dessert bar. The nighttime menu will include an interpretation of an ice cream sundae, cake and pie by the slice, two to three unique plated desserts and a few savory dishes. The bar includes coffee drinks, a selection of wines and specialty cocktails including the foxtail, a light summery beverage with Oregon Spirit Distiller’s gin, muddled sage and cucumber with fresh-squeezed orange juice. When we asked Chef-Owner Nickol Hayden-Cady what prompted her to open the dessert bar, she said, “It was the original idea for the restaurant.” It’s definitely a sweet idea for a date night or an indulgent girls night out.

topped with a dollop of cream, a mint sprig and a fresh Peruvian lily. I love edible flowers so I asked my friends if they thought it was edible and they both quickly said, “No.” They were right. According to the University of California’s safe and poisonous plants website, the Peruvian lily has minor toxicity if ingested. If I accidentally ate it I wouldn’t die but I could suffer from vomiting or diarrhea. I prefer the rule that if it’s on your plate it’s meant to be eaten. Regardless of the flower, the French toast and its almond flavored goodness quenched my sweet tooth. Next up was the Mt. Bachelor Breakfast Sammy. Scrambled eggs, bacon and creamy havarti on an over-sized English muffin. The buttery havarti was a nice touch but wasn’t rich enough to counteract the lack of flavor in the English muffin. It reminded me of eating bread in Florence, Italy, and wondering why it tasted so bland. Tuscan bread is made without salt and I was getting the same vibe here. A smear of some salty butter would have helped.

The creaminess I was looking for came in the form of a jumbo lump crab cake benedict with the yolk from the poached egg and the hollandaise sauce. The Lemon Tree makes a good traditional benedict. The menu says it’s a citrus hollandaise but I wasn’t getting any citrus-forward notes. When I asked the owners if they missed the adventure of travel, McDonald said, “We’re not missing the boat, we have a big spirit of travel but we’re exercising that through food.” I also wondered if their clientele was embracing the eclectic menu. “People are stepping outside their comfort zone and loving it,” McDonald told me. “Shakshuka, nasi goreng and the benedicts are the most popular.”  SW The Lemon Tree

Courtesy of Paramount


Thank you, Tom Cruise, for all that you do for us.

depth that would allow us to see Cruise as something more than a movie star. “Mission Impossible: Fallout” is another high watermark for the series that doesn’t quite reach the (literal) heights of “Ghost Protocol,” but makes “Rogue Nation” look like a warmup for this adventure. Explaining the plot is pointless, as it’s the most delightfully absurdist series of red herrings, MacGuffins and double crosses since Brian DePalma’s underrated original. The

story and structure are solid, but they really only exist so we can see Tom Cruise jump out of windows with the same fervor he jumped on couches. This is the first movie of the summer than feels like a true blockbuster event film. It’s truly a breathless thrill-ride that ratchets up the tension for every minute of its runtime while escalating the action sequences to dizzying and delirious proportions. As much as I love a nice quiet indie movie,

“Fallout” is pure adventure storytelling that should silence even the most cynical of moviegoers. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to go have some heart-pounding fun at the movies. SW

MoviePass Struggles to Live Was the service always too good to be true? By Jared Rasic


e all knew MoviePass was too good to be true, right? As someone who goes to see at least two theatrical movies a week, paying $10 a month to see one movie a day is my dream come true. I was a subscriber to MoviePass back in 2016 when it was $30 a month and I was still over the moon about the service. But now the questions I had about the company’s sustainability are taking root and it looks like

“I’ll still be loyal to MoviePass if it goes back up to $30 or if it limits the movies we can see to two or three a week." the overnight giant might be breathing its last breath. Last year, MoviePass slashed that $30 a month price tag down to $10 and the subscriber base went from 20,000 to over 3 million over the period of just a few weeks. That means if you go to ONE movie in a month, you’ve already paid for your MoviePass and every movie after is just a beautiful cinematic bonus. Even

with rules, like not being able to use it for 3D or IMAX movies and not being able to see the same movie more than once, the service still more than paid for itself. With CEO Mitch Lowe in the driver’s seat, it seemed like MoviePass might find a way to make a profit. Lowe was a Netflix executive from 1998 to 2003, and the president of Redbox from 2009 to 2011, so he knows how to take a new idea and spin it into cash. If anyone could find a way to make MoviePass work, it’s Lowe, but strategies like bulk ticket price partnerships and charging studio fees to distributors eventually dried up and disappeared. In April, MoviePass disclosed that it was losing around $20 million a month which leads us to last week when the company borrowed $5 million after not being able to pay its bills. Yes, MoviePass is hemorrhaging money which is why the service didn’t even work for people going to see “Mission Impossible: Fallout” this past weekend. Even charging customers “peak pricing” fees of $5 to see new movies on opening weekend won’t offset those losses. Sure, MoviePass not working when we want it to is a pain in the ass, but

instead of the fury being lobbed at the company, I think I’ll just be grateful they exist at all. It’s highly unlikely MoviePass will finish out the summer (let alone the year), but I have a strong feeling that most of the upset people have already more than received their money’s worth. I’ll still be loyal to MoviePass if it goes back up to $30 or if it limits the movies we can see to two or three a week. It’ll still save the ravenous filmgoer plenty of

money and still get audiences into movies they might not see theatrically, giving the smallest movies an equal chance to shine against the blockbusters. MoviePass’ eyes might have been bigger than its stomach, but giving audiences almost unlimited access to overcharging theaters (themselves struggling from overcharging studios) is one of the least cynical things a company like MoviePass has ever done. That’s probably why they’re dying. SW



really want to know when Tom Cruise became the white Jackie Chan. He’s always tried to do as many of his own stunts as he could—training to be a race car driver for “Days of Thunder” or how to expertly handle a motorcycle in “Mission Impossible 2.” Even knowing that he didn’t die shooting these movies, it’s still a huge rush watching him throw himself off of rooftops or hanging from the side of a helicopter. Love him or hate him, Cruise wants to earn the dollars you’re spending at the movies. He’s like the anti-Bruce Willis, who can barely stifle a yawn on camera anymore. Cruise will shatter every bone in his body to make sure we walk out of the theater with a smile on our face and a desire to shell out another $15 for all the future Impossible Missions he decides to make. Ethan Hunt is the perfect character for Cruise to keep coming back to because, even after six films in the franchise, we still don’t know him much better as a character than we did after the first one. Hunt’s enigmatic vibe perfectly compliments Cruise’s acting choices, letting the audience fill in Hunt’s inner life while simultaneously avoiding the

Day Trips Without Cars

By David Sword

Change of scenery without the drive By Danielle Meyers



There are so many sights to see near Bend, you don’t even have to drive. This week ditch the car and grab your bike, take a shuttle or use your two feet and the Cascades East Transit to take an adventure.


Oh, shift! Why drive? There are plenty of places to escape on two wheels and a little leg power. Oregon State Park Scenic Bike Routes: The Oregon Scenic Bikeway Routes are nominated by locals and selected by Oregon State Parks. They run past state parks and roads, and cross mountains and deserts. Bikeways are official state-designated routes with printable maps, GPS and on-road signage. »» Twin Bridges Loop (36-mile loop) Grab a road bike, water and some good fuel for this 36-mile loop! The route starts in downtown Bend on the east side of Drake Park at the intersection of Franklin Boulevard and Brooks Street. Travel the road toward Shevlin Park and continue toward Tumalo, then circle back to Bend. »» Mckenzie Pass (35 miles one way) Starts in Sisters and follows an 1860s wagon route through lava flows. The steep descent has switchbacks through the Cascadian forest, and views of Mt. Washington. This bikeway is labeled as “extreme” by the Oregon State Parks and is for advanced riders only. »» Sisters to Smith Rock (37 miles one way) This route starts in downtown Sisters and passes through Terrebonne. Roll past grazing alpacas, and the snow-covered Cascade Mountains on your way to Smith Rock State Park, famous for its climbing and multicolored rock formations. For maps of all Oregon State Scenic Bike Routes check out:

Near Bend

Bend Parks & Recreation also has trail systems near Bend. Check out Shevlin Park for an easy to extreme ride from town. »» Shevlin Park: (4.7 miles one way) From downtown head northwest toward Kansas Avenue then head through Drake Park toward Newport Avenue, following the signs for Shevlin Park. It’s easy to bike ride to and has three different trails that are totally unique. »» Loop Trail: 6-mile trail that follows the canyon rim and crosses Tumalo Creek twice. »» Tumalo Creek Trail: 2.5-mile trail that starts upstream from the park entrance

Take the scenic route and walk around a volcano with Wanderlust Tours.

and connects to the Deschutes National Forest trail system. »» Mountain Bike Trail: For bikers and hikers, this trail follows the canyon and links with the Forest Service’s Mrazek Trail. For trail maps and info visit:


Let someone else do the driving! The tour companies in Bend have shuttles that leave for adventures daily. Wanderlust Tours Wanderlust Tours makes locals tourists and tourists locals—basically they have adventures for everyone. Tours depart daily from their local office, located in the Fred Meyer Shopping Center on south Hwy 97. For each tour they provide a naturalist guide, transportation to and from their office, and any necessary equipment for the tour. All you need is the proper attire, sunscreen, water, snacks and a little wanderlust. They have exciting tours like, “Brews & Views Canoe Tours,” which includes a paddle out on one of the Cascade Lakes, and tastes from Cascade Lakes Brewing Company, or a root beer for kiddos. There’s also volcano sightseeing, where guides lead you into the belly of the ancient Newberry Volcano. They also have cave tours, moonlight canoe tours and local “pour tours.” Wanderlust Tours Office

Wanoga, Swampy Lakes, and Dutchman Flats trail heads. On the weekends they offer a shuttle to the McKenzie Pass Scenic Bikeway, a 30-mile round trip ride that weaves up 2,000 feet of elevation to the Dee Wright Observatory. Cog Wild Tours

255 SW Century Dr., Suite 201 Bend, OR 97702 541.385.7002

Mt. Bachelor Looking for a nice view of Central Oregon? Take a shuttle to Mt. Bachelor and hike to the 9,065-foot summit, or take a scenic chairlift ride to the Pine Martin Lodge perched at 7,775 feet. From the top, take in the sights of the Three Sisters, Broken Top and the Cascade Lakes. Side note: FORE! There is a disc golf course that starts at the top of the Pine Martin chairlift that works its way down to West Village Lodge.

Bachelor at 5:45pm

Feet + CET

You don’t have to go far to find nature’s solitude in Bend. There are 65 miles of Urban Trail kept up by BPRD. These trails are not out of town, so you won’t need a car to get to them. The trails below are all accessible from the CET. Find your closest route at: »» The Deschutes River Trail: A 35.5-mile trail that runs parallel to the Deschutes River and extends from Tumalo State Park to Meadow Camp. This popular trail has multiple legs to choose from, but isn’t fully connected. It can be accessed from four parks in Bend: Awbrey, Pioneer, Farewell Bend and First Street Rapids.  SW

Pole Creek


A trailhead less traveled Bend has an iconic landscape, which includes the volcanic monuments known as the Three Sisters. North, Middle and South Sister—also referred to as Faith, Hope and Charity—fill our western horizon and are seemingly within arms reach. Access points to the Three Sisters are sparse, however, as they lie in the designated Three Sisters Wilderness area. But whether you desire a day hike, backpacking trip, or mountaineering objective, the Pole Creek Trailhead makes access one step easier. Located a few klicks outside of the town of Sisters and nestled high on the northeastern flanks of North Sister, you’ll find a trailhead less travelled. FIND IT: Chambers, Camp and Demaris Lakes are great on-trail goals from Pole Creek. For those who like to travel off the beaten path, the headwaters of Soap and Whychus Creeks make good targets. The Pole Creek Fire burned nearly 41 square miles in 2012, but nature is rebuilding and much of the forest survived. Take Hwy. 20 to Sisters, following the signs for McKenzie Pass on Hwy. 242, then look for the sign to Pole Creek trailhead approximately 1.5 miles after entering Hwy. 242. Roll past the end of the paved road and on a long stretch of gravel that leads you south for 10 miles on Forest Service Road 15. Park (Annual Recreation Pass or $5 Day Fee required) and fill out a mandatory, free Wilderness Permit. Keep your camera on and put one foot in front of the other. COMMITMENT LEVEL: Half day to multiple day possibilities. SWEAT LEVEL: Easy to moderate. STOKE LEVEL: Moderate to off the charts.

Seize The Meh

I’m a 31-year-old guy who got really hurt after a relationship ended a few years back. Now I just don’t date women whom I’ll ever really care about because I don’t ever want to feel how I felt when my previous relationship ended. My friends say I’m being a coward and missing out, but, hey, I’m not depressed over any chicks. I think I’m being smart in protecting myself. Maybe more people should take this approach. —Comfortably Numb These days, your relationships probably start when you eyeball a woman on the street: “Whoa! I bet she’d be seriously mediocre in bed!” Next, you discover that she’s a real yawn out of the sack, too—and you’re in! Now, it’s possible that you’re way more emotionally sensitive than most people, to the point where a loss that others would eventually recover from hits you like a never-ending colonoscopy (with, um, artisanal anesthesia: “If you’ll just bite this stick...”). Even if you are super sensitive, avoiding the pain comes at a substantial price: living a gray goulash of a life, spending every day with some uninspiring somebody you don’t really care about. But consider that we evolved to be resilient— to heal from emotional injuries as we do physical ones. However, in order for you to do this— and to see that you might actually be able to stand the pain of loss— you need to view resilience not as some mysterious emotional gift but as a practice. Resilience comes out of what clinical psychologist Salvatore Maddi calls “hardiness.” He writes that “hardiness ... provides the courage and motivation to do the hard, strategic work of turning stressful circumstances from potential disasters into growth opportunities.” His research finds that hardiness is made up of three “interrelated attitudes,” which he calls the three Cs: Commitment, Control, and Challenge. Commitment is the desire to engage with people and life instead of pulling away and isolating yourself. Control is the motivation to take action to improve your life “rather than sinking into passivity and powerlessness.” Challenge is the willingness to face the stress life throws at you and use it as a learning experience “rather than playing it safe by avoiding uncertainties and potential threats.” These attitudes might not come naturally to you. But you can choose to take them up, same as you might other “unnatural practices,” like monogamy and wearing deodorant. Understanding that there are steps you can take to recover from heartbreak might give

you the courage to go for a woman you really love. Sure, that woman might leave you—causing you big-time pain. But consider that risk avoidance—like by being with a woman you don’t really care about—isn’t pain avoidance. The pain is just different. It’s low-dose extended-release—like frequently experiencing the post-sex horror that leads you to want to grab your clothes and make a run for it before the woman next to you wakes up. And then you remember a couple of essential points: She’s your wife, not some Tinder rando, and it’s your apartment.

Give Pizza A Chance

I’m a straight 36-year-old woman, and I recently lost a lot of weight. My doctor’s happy. My girlfriends think I look great. They’re all “How’d you do it?” “You look like a model!” However, my male friends think I’m too skinny now. Is there a big difference in what the sexes consider a good body? —Slim Though women assume that men think the ideal female body shape is modeliciously skinny, consider that construction workers rarely yell out, “Hey, Hotstuff! Great set of ribs!” In studies exploring men’s and women’s ideas of the ideal female body weight, women consistently “perceive men as being attracted to thinner female figures than is true in reality,” writes social psychologist Viren Swami. And it isn’t just North American men who like fleshier women. Swami ran a massive survey—of 7,434 men and women in 26 countries, across 10 world regions— and “men across all world regions except East Asia selected a significantly heavier figure as being most physically attractive compared to what women believed was most attractive to men.” Swami and his colleagues speculate that “women exposed to magazines marketed to women may form skewed perceptions of what body types are most appealing to men.” But don’t despair. Swami’s study and others measure the preferences of the “average” man. There is no such person. Or, as an epidemiologist friend of mine often reminds me, there are “individual differences”—meaning individuals’ preferences vary. In other words, there are men out there who will be seriously into a woman like you—a woman who can do amazing feats in the bedroom, like removing a pair of skinny jeans without calling 911 and asking for firemen to come over with the Jaws of Life.

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The questions

past and the future pressing so hard on either side that there’s no room for the present at all.” A character named Julia says that in Evelyn Waugh’s novel *Brideshead Revisited*. I bring it to your attention as an inspiring irritant, as a prod to get you motivated. I hope it will mobilize you to rise up and refuse to allow your past and your future to press so hard on either side that there’s no room for the present. It’s a favorable time for you to fully claim the glory of being right here, right now.

you’ve been asking aren’t bad or wrong. But they’re not exactly relevant or helpful, either. That’s why the answers you’ve been receiving aren’t of maximum use. Try these questions instead. 1. What experience or information would you need to heal your divided sense of loyalty? 2. How can you attract an influence that would motivate you to make changes you can’t quite accomplish under your own power? 3. Can you ignore or even dismiss the 95 percent of your fear that’s imaginary so you’ll be able to focus on the five percent that’s truly worth meditating on? 4. If I assured you that you have the intelligence to beautify an ugly part of your world, how would you begin?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I’m not an ascetic who believes all our valuable lessons emerge from suffering. Nor am I a pop-nihilist who sneers at pretty flowers, smiling children, and sunny days. On the contrary: I’m devoted to the hypothesis that life is usually at least 51 percent wonderful. But I dance the rain dance when there’s an emotional drought in my personal life, and I dance the pain dance when it’s time to deal with difficulties I’ve ignored. How about you, Virgo? I suspect that now is one of those times when you need to have compassionate heart-to-heart conversations with your fears, struggles, and aches.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do you absolutely need orchids, sweet elixirs, dark chocolate, alluring new music, dances on soft grass, sensual massages, nine hours of sleep per night, and a steady stream of soulful conversations? No. Not really. In the coming days, life will be a good ride for you even if you fail to procure those indulgences. But here are further questions and answers: Do you *deserve* the orchids, elixirs, and the rest? My answer is yes, definitely. And would the arrival of these delights spur you to come up with imaginative solutions to your top two riddles? I’m pretty sure it would. So I conclude this horoscope by recommending that you do indeed arrange to revel in your equivalent of the delights I named. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Don’t try to steer the river,” writes Deepak Chopra. Most of the time, I agree with that idea. It’s arrogant to think that we have the power to control the forces of nature or the flow of destiny or the song of creation. Our goal should be to get an intuitive read on the crazy-making miracle of life, and adapt ourselves ingeniously to its ever-shifting patterns and rhythms. But wait! Set aside everything I just said. An exception to the usual rule has arrived. Sometimes, when your personal power is extra flexible and robust -- like now, for you -- you may indeed be able to steer the river a bit. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Dear Astrologer: Recently I’ve been weirdly obsessed with wondering how to increase my levels of generosity and compassion. Not just because I know it’s the right thing to do, but also because I know it will make me healthy and honest and unflappable. Do you have any sage advice? -Ambitious Sagittarius.” Dear Ambitious: I’ve noticed that many Sagittarians are feeling an unprecedented curiosity about how to enhance their lives by boosting the benevolence they express. Here’s a tip from astrologer Chani Nicholas: “Source your sense of self from your integrity in every interaction.” Here’s another tip from Anais Nin: “The worse the state of the world grows, the more intensely I try for inner perfection and power. I fight for a small world of humanity and tenderness.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Time does not necessarily heal all wounds. If you wait around passively, hoping that the mere passage of months will magically fix your twists and smooth out your tweaks, you’re shirking your responsibility. The truth is, you need to be fully engaged in the process. You’ve got to feel deeply and think hard about how to diminish your pain, and then take practical action when your wisdom shows you what will actually work. Now is an excellent time to upgrade your commitment to this sacred quest.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A scuffle you’ve been waging turns out to be the wrong scuffle. It has distracted you from giving your full attention to a more winnable and worthwhile tussle. My advice? Don’t waste energy feeling remorse about the energy you’ve wasted. In fact, be grateful for the training you’ve received. The skills you’ve been honing while wrestling with the misleading complication will serve you well when you switch your focus to the more important issue. So are you ready to shift gears? Start mobilizing your crusade to engage with the more winnable and worthwhile tussle.







ARIES (March 21-April 19): I predict that August will be a Golden Age for you. That’s mostly very good. Golden opportunities will arise, and you’ll come into possession of lead that can be transmuted into gold. But it’s also important to be prudent about your dealings with gold. Consider the fable of the golden goose. The bird’s owner grew impatient because it laid only one gold egg per day; he foolishly slaughtered his prize animal to get all the gold immediately. That didn’t work out well. Or consider the fact that to the ancient Aztecs, the word *teocuitlatl* referred to gold, even though its literally translation was “excrement of the gods.” Moral of the story: If handled with care and integrity, gold can be a blessing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus socialite Stephen Tennant (1906-1987) was such an interesting luminary that three major novelists created fictional characters modeled after him. As a boy, when he was asked what he’d like to be when he grew up, he replied, “I want to be a great beauty.” I’d love to hear those words spill out of your mouth, Taurus. What? You say you’re already all grown up? I doubt it. In my opinion, you’ve still got a lot of stretching and expansion and transformation to accomplish during the coming decades. So yes: I hope you can find it in your wild heart to proclaim, “When I grow up, I want to be a great beauty.” (P.S. Your ability to become increasingly beautiful will be at a peak during the next fourteen months.) GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Manage with bread and butter until God sends the honey,” advises a Moroccan proverb. Let’s analyze how this advice might apply to you. First thing I want to know is, have you been managing well with bread and butter? Have you refrained from whining about your simple provisions, resting content and grateful? If you haven’t, I doubt that any honey will arrive, ether from God or any other source. But if you have been celebrating your modest gifts, feeling free of greed and displeasure, then I expect at least some honey will show up soon.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t worry your beautiful head about praying to the gods of luck and fate. I’ll take care of that for you. Your job is to propitiate the gods of fluid discipline and hard but smart work. To win the favor of these divine helpers, act on the assumption that you now have the power and the right to ask for more of their assistance than you have before. Proceed with the understanding that they are willing to provide you with the stamina, persistence, and attention to detail you will need to accomplish your next breakthrough.

Should We Legalize All Drugs? Discuss H

w w w. t o k y o s t a r f i s h . c o m

By Josh Jardine

aving just celebrated the third anniversary of cannabis legalization in Oregon, it’s safe to say it has been a success. While its had a negative impact on the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP), and 28,975 licensed growers have depressed prices—and the lack of social consumption spaces and events is mind boggling—the numerous benefits still outweigh the negatives. Connecticut, Michigan and Ohio are expected to vote on cannabis legalization programs in November. National legalization is being discussed with greater frequency and consideration, and predictions for future industry value continues to skyrocket. A recent report by BDS Analytics predicts a U.S. cannabis market value by 2022 of $23.4 billion, and a 22 percent plus annual compound growth rate. In fact, it’s going so well, there has been more interest in the question: “Should we legalize, regulate and tax all drugs?” (“Hell yes, let’s do it! Let’s totally do it now, bro!” hoarsely shout the readers who just did a line of coke.) Mexico’s newly elected president said he will give “carte blanche” to his future Interior Minister to explore the possiblility of legalization of all drugs. Since Mexico deployed its army in 2006 to fight drug trafficking, there have been over 200,000 murders. A recent paper by a Harvard-based researcher and published by The Cato Institute gives insight to the financial picture: Legalizing all drugs could generate over $100 billion in savings and taxes annually, benefitting federal, state and local governments. The author published a prior paper in 2010, forecasting cannabis revenue if legalized and recently said his predictions were “blown out of the water” in Colorado, Oregon and Washington. He told the Marijuana Moment newsletter that “This report estimates that $47.9 billion is spent annually on drug prohibition enforcement, whereas $58.8 billion could potentially be raised in tax revenue.” He breaks down, state by state, both the federal and state and local expenditures attributable to drug prohibition in 2016 by category: “Marijuana,” “Cocaine/Heroin,” “Synthetic,” and “Other,” which I assume to mean mushrooms, peyote and other plant-based hallucinogens. Oregon spent $375 million in 2016 on the prohibition of all drugs combined:

$57 million for cannabis, $177 million for cocaine/heroin, and $140 million on other drugs. He estimates that legalization and state taxation would result in nearly $246 million for Oregon, with $50 million for cannabis, $108 million for cocaine, $63 million for heroin, and $23 million for other drugs. Removing the money spent on prohabition and adding the money that would come from legalization and taxes could add up to nearly $625 million in savings and revenue for Oregon. The current system for drug prohibition and enforcement is a massive, decades-long failure, with blatantly racist punishment of people and communities of color, even with comparable drug use compared to whites. Services for treatment are grossly underfunded, and drug-based criminal convictions severely limit those seeking to reintegrate after incarceration. The system is broken. Criminalizing drug use isn’t working, and there are public health benefits to having legal access to drugs that have undergone a rigorous screening for purity and safety. Yet selling drugs with no discernable benefits, and high risks such as death, is a flawed solution. Cocaine and heroin aren’t difficult to find in most U.S. cities. But to purchase personal amounts of those drugs at a cannabis dispensary isn’t acceptable for most people I know. They view cannabis as having tremendous and still untapped healing properties, while having far fewer detrimental effects as a relaxant than prescription pills or alcohol. Many of these same people enjoy psychedelic mushrooms, and would be down to micro (or macro) dose if they had access to peyote, with the belief that these plants have beneficial uses for physiological conditions such as depression, post traumatic stress disorder, and others. But no one sings the praises of the healing properties of a bump of coke, or a syringe of heroin. When used in controlled medical settings, both have remarkable pain-killing properties. When consumed recreationally, often the intent is to kill a different type of pain. (Barring Nazi pilots, meth has never done anyone who used it any favors.) Instead of profiting, perhaps we should start asking users of those drugs what pains they are working to numb, and begin putting sufficient resources into offering comprehensive treatments and alternatives.
