Walden Should Follow Through on Debating McLeod-Skinner


f you want to get an answer from Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR2), apparently you have to find him in a parade. That’s exactly what Jamie McLeod-Skinner, the Democratic candidate for Oregon’s 2nd Congressional District, did last week in Joseph, Ore. McLeod-Skinner has been attempting to get incumbent Walden to agree to a series of three debates ahead of the November election. Since she has yet to lock down any dates with Walden, she did what a plucky, determined candidate should do: she walked up to him while he was cruising in a vintage car in the Chief Joseph Day Parade and put him on the spot, asking him to set up those three debates. Walden responded by saying he looked forward to it—but according to McLeod-Skinner’s campaign, no dates have yet been set. Walden’s campaign did not respond to our inquiry about debate dates by press time. Since he was elected to Congress in 1998, Walden has had many challengers for his House seat—yet he’s had something of an easy campaign load. Voters have cast their ballots for Walden— often touted as a moderate Republican—handily. Challengers seemed half-hearted. It wasn’t until the wake of the 2016 election, and Walden’s subsequent backing of a number of the president’s unpopular moves, that constituents in the district began to make more concerted efforts to find a new representative in Congress. Walden is chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and a driving force behind the efforts in Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act and thrash Medicaid and the Oregon Health Plan. Walden even received

a pat on the back from the president for being part of “the group,” as Congress debated the repeal. In Walden’s district—our district—more people would have lost health insurance with the repeal than anywhere else in Oregon. While that repeal effort failed, Republicans continue to chip away at the tenets of the ACA. Walden has spoken, during his limited town halls in the region, of his desire to replace the existing model with a community health center model—but it would be beneficial to hear more about that plan, and to compare it directly with McLeod-Skinner’s approach. Face to face, no-spin conversation in the form of a debate should be a hallmark of democracy. Voters should not get all of their information about candidates second-hand, and debates are a key part of that. Here in Bend, many of Walden’s constituents regularly decry how they’re tired of their representative’s lack of connection with so many voters in the district. To push back against that sentiment, Walden should get some dates with McLeod-Skinner on the calendar as soon as possible.  SW

Headline reads “Bend sewer plan caps connection price” (Bulletin 7/29/18), well I am one of the hundreds who will be impacted by the mandatory hook-up to sewer line, despite having a functional septic that is less than 10 years old. I also don’t have the $25,000 price tag let alone the prospect of paying $250 a month to pay into the system. The issue at hand is how the City continues to annex in properties as it supports growth and construction when there is no infrastructure in place to support that. Prior to my neighborhood being annexed in 20 years ago, the City should of planned for infrastructure to cover the costs of services before they annexed us. Due to poor planning on the City’s part they now are no longer eligible to apply for state or federal dollars for said projects. At this time my neighborhood is being asked to pick up the tab or have a lien placed on my property. I pay my property taxes to live here, live on my property with a home I keep improving on. I pay for schools despite no children in the schools, I pay for storm water run off despite that not being an issue in my neighborhood. I expect the City to figure out how it can pay for services provided to the locals who are paying their taxes. Meanwhile there are additional neighborhoods who will have similar impacts in the future- forced to pay costs for infrastructure the City does not plan for - how much more growth will the City approve without plans to cover costs? Currently road repairs, let alone snow removal is not adequatedly budgeted for either. Now is the time for the City to stop growth in Bend until they can catch up with the lack of infrastructure. It is time to quit giving breaks to developers on SDC’s until all can figure out how to pay for things. I have lived here 32 years and have watched the unraveling of Bend - it’s like they want to get rid of the old timers who can’t absorb the high costs of living here.


IN RESPONSE TO “DOG DAYS OF SUMMER” ON 7/26 I just plowed thru your “Dog Days” issue and it was disappointing and discouraging. You missed a great opportunity to educate people and improve the life of countless dogs. Instead of all the fluff and cuteness the Source had a chance to really say something about what dogs have meant to our species for the last couple of million years. Mankind uses dogs to find fools

who get themselves lost and injured, sniff out contraband, diagnose diseases, assist handicaps, protect people and possessions and the list goes on and on. With all that said, lets not forget the elephant in the room. Our very existence is dependent on canines. Eons ago dogs taught us how to hunt and collect animals and this was responsible for allowing humans to step away from the other species on the planet at the time. We literally evolved all of our wealth and power because of dogs. If these creatures hadn’t helped us we would, today, be wearing loin clothes and carrying spears. Which brings me to the point I really want to make. Our society abuses, mistreats and denigrates these saviors of our lives. We owe them our very existence and we treat them as throw a ways. This is a scourge on all mankind and I wish their place in history were better known and you had a change to move the needle a little in that direction and didn’t. —Matt Gawlik

The new Blue Line Safety Zone at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.

Blue Line Safety Zone Now Offered at DCSO

The two parking spots are for safe internet transactions and other exchanges



* Brunch only available on weekends at Eastside location.

Recently, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office created two parking spaces in its parking lot off NE Jamison Street, near Hwy. 20 for a safe space to do Craigslist-type transactions and other things like exchanging children between parents. The spots, called “Blue Line Safety Zone” are clearly marked and in a welllit area, according to the DSCO’s press release. By providing the spaces, the Sheriff’s Office is hoping to deter people who would take advantage or do harm to people in these type of transactions, which has happened in the past country-wide, especially with internet sales scams. Sheriff L. Shane Nelson said in a statement: “Law enforcement is known as the Thin Blue Line, protecting our community by delivering superior public safety and service. Our office strives to be as proactive as we can be in delivering this service. The Sheriff’s Blue Line Safety Zone provides a safer, video recorded public area for parent exchanges of children as well as in person transactions following online sales.” According to the DCSO, the area is under 24-hour video surveillance. The deputies won’t get involved in, or directly monitor the transactions, but the DCSO said if the need arises, they would have video available to refer back to. The Sheriff’s Office reminds people to call 911 from the parking spaces if an emergency comes up. The DCSO said people should remember that buying items from an online service and meeting someone you don’t know comes with inherent risks. People should always exercise caution and chose a public location when completing these kinds of transactions.

BCD looks to turn underpass into a work of art

Riding your bike through trash, puddles of human waste and avoiding the occasional napper can make the route

to downtown through the Franklin Avenue underpass a little less than pleasant. But if groups including the Bend Central District, Central Oregon LandWatch and local businesses have their way, the tunnel could end up a gem for Bend, modeled at least in part after the Highline trail in New York City. The BCD sent out an initial proposal in July. Its objective: “to transform the Franklin Avenue underpass into a site specific art installation, in order to promote awareness of pedestrian and bike access in the artery, and create an aesthetically interesting and thought provoking experience around public spaces.” Landwatch’s Moey Newbold, along with local artist Kaycee Anseth, are spearheading the project, with an initial cleanup scheduled Aug. 20. Anseth said volunteers can meet up at Oregon Spirit Distillers at 4:30 pm and then walk to the project site. Anseth said she’s waiting to get the go-ahead from the City of Bend for the art portion of the project. The project also needs permission from the Oregon Department of Transportation and Burlington Northern Santa Fe, which operates the railway, because they have overlapping jurisdiction in the area. The goals of the proposal are to generate interest in the BCD, to foster long-term art installations in unexpected parts of Bend, to make east-to-west human-powered transportation safer and more enjoyable, to catalyze improvement of public spaces and to highlight the needs of Bend’s homeless people. The first step: finding a team of volunteers to clean the tunnel underpass and walkways leading to it, as well as power-washing the sidewalk, walls and roof of the railroad tunnel. If the City allows, a team of artists will apply a design to the underpass walls, creating an outdoor gallery and using colored fabric to weave a pattern along the chain-link fence inside the tunnel—essentially creating a mural with fabric, as a large scale embroidered piece. The sidewalks on the west side of the tunnel would become a landscaped promenade, with the potential for sidewalk carnival vendors, art installations, farmers market stalls and other projects. Interested volunteers can connect via the Project Underpass’ Facebook page or through Central Oregon LandWatch. SW

State of the County

Commissioners weigh in on the biggest issues facing Deschutes County By Jaclyn Brandt


eschutes County has around 180,000 residents—more than twice as many as official counts in Bend. But county residents, in or near towns including Redmond, La Pine and Terrebonne, have just as many, and sometimes more unique needs. “Bend gets focused on, but it’s a big county,” said Deschutes County Commissioner Phil Henderson at the annual State of the County address July 31. Commissioners Henderson, Tammy Baney and Tony DeBone discussed many topics, including the budget, marijuana and land use. Of county residents, 72 percent are in urban areas, with 28 percent in rural

Big issues bring out big crowds.

areas. Seventy-nine percent of the county’s land is publicly owned—mainly Bureau of Land Management or U.S. Forest Service land—which means at most only 21 percent can be developed. Marijuana Marijuana is a hot-button issue among Deschutes County residents, from both sides. Deschutes County is slated to receive around $350,000 each year in revenue from marijuana sales, but most goes back to paying for regulation, staffing and research into marijuana-related issues, commissioners said. Legalization has created more work for the county, and the commissioners said there’s no profit to Deschutes County in marijuana dollars. According to Henderson, “Bend gets more than us.” The county “opted in” to sales when the law was passed, and commissioners set up regulations. At the address,

Managing Growth It’s been a few years since a county bond has been included in property taxes, DeBone said, but the commission needs to start looking at any needs that could arise. “The capital needs in the future are going to start to creep up on us and someday we’re going to have to pull the trigger on that,” he explained. At the same time, the county budget includes a proposed fee cut for hotels, restaurants and food carts by 6 percent, and an increase on development fees of 7 percent. The commission will be looking at numerous transportation projects, including potentially adding a roundabout at Old Bend Redmond Highway and Tumalo Road. Commissioners are also looking at different possibilities for improving O.B. Riley Road where it crosses US 20 and becomes Cooke Avenue, as well as helping people cross the road at Highway 97 in Terrebonne and numerous pavement preservation projects. Land Issues Commissioners have also been working on ways to improve the affordable

housing situation. House Bill 4079, passed in 2016, allows the Land Conservation and Development Commission to establish a pilot Urban Growth Boundary expansion process to develop land dedicated to affordable housing. Only two cities in the state (one with a population under 25,000 and one with a population over 25,000) will be approved for a pilot project to add affordable housing in an area outside the UGB. The projects would take at least five years to go through the process of zoning and building. The law states the area must be protected for affordable housing for 50 years. The commission is also looking at rezoning farm and agricultural lands that are no longer able to grow. On the east side of Bend, commissioners say they’re working with the state to look at Exclusive Farm Use zone parcels that are now considered unproductive farmland. By changing zoning, housing may be allowed. “It’s trying to reconcile what we value in terms of farmland and agricultural land and also recognize we have housing needs in our community as well,” Baney said. The commissioners said they may also support allowing accessory dwelling units on land designated as farmland. “If we can’t get to the point where you can buy a home for less than $200,000, then we can’t have this conversation,” Henderson said. “We can’t pretend like we’re living with no land outside of our cities.” Henderson also advocates for relaxed regulation in building, which he says drives up housing costs. Other Hot Topics Other projects on the horizon include improving a coverage issue of the communications system used by the county (including 911), the Public Employees Retirement System, solid waste planning for the future, the county’s role in housing and legislative priorities.

commissioners said some marijuana tax dollars are being used for increased enforcement and compliance, including funding for a new sheriff’s detective to focus on marijuana enforcement in unincorporated parts of the county. The funds will also be used on increased enforcement and regulations. Each marijuana application is reviewed by the county, and nearby residents are allowed to appeal, because living next to an operation is “not particularly popular among neighbors,” Henderson explained. “It’s just been interesting because we fill the room every time we talk about it,” DeBone added. Baney explained that, in the end, it’s about sharing community values that meet the needs on both sides.

16 miles south of Sisters on Forest Road 16

Saturday dawns and it takes a while to assemble cooking and camping gear, prep food, procure ice and check my gear. I make it to Three Creek Lake as the heat begins to wane, donning a hoodie as my dog and I float in the cool glacial cirque under Tam MacArthur Rim. A few fishing boats dot the shoreline, but traffic fortunately remains light. The Tam MacArthur Trail is one of the area’s busiest—so much so that officials from the Deschutes National Forest are currently considering adding a quota system to it and other busy trails in the Forest system. I duck onto a forest road to spend the night, treated to a poetically gorgeous sunset over the Three Sisters. Day one: win.


Clear Lake 58 miles northwest of Bend via Highway 20 and OR-126

In conceiving this adventure, I had one additional criterion I wanted to include: boondocks. With my arrival at Clear Lake, however, I had to throw out notions of blissful solitude. Clear Lake, constituting the headwaters of the gorgeous McKenzie River, is an

t’s 8:30 am on a work day and my feet have the feral Sasquatch look usually reserved for music festivals and camping trips. Indeed, I have been camping—but I also have a work meeting in about 15 minutes. Can I cover this feral mess, making it through the meeting with the use of closed-toe shoes? Maybe... Behold, the woes of a briefcase vagabond—one with a bucket list of outdoor spots to explore, but a reallife J-O-B that keeps the realistic list short. Living as a card-carrying member of the weekend warrior class, I thought, how was I ever to get to the most basic of paddle spots I’d been wanting to experience—let alone to the more remote, more peaceful and serene ones? Summer is only so long. I decided to get strategic, carving out a 10-day period, not taking any days off work and assigning myself the mission to paddle on 10 lakes I’d never been to before. To those who greeted me at the office, it appeared I was experiencing another ho-hum stretch of 10 days. To this briefcase vagabond, I was having the outdoor staycation my FOMO soul desired. Here’s how I did it. Criteria: I own an inflatable sit-on-top kayak with a decidedly small fin, which packs into a convenient backpack. She’s flatwater-only—so paddling where motor boats are allowed and have the potential to create major wake-waves is not exactly relaxing. Thus, criterion one: Attempting to find lakes with no motor boats allowed, or at least ones not known for heavy motor traffic. Criterion two: Accessible public lands where primitive camping is allowed.

excellent place to witness osprey doing their thing— but you’ll share that privilege with the throngs exploring the lake and the nearby waterfalls and trails. Since the water is icy cool, I hit the McKenzie River Trail on my bike to warm up for a swim and paddle, starting out at the trailhead. Noob tip: take the River Trail by crossing the bridge at the trailhead, instead of heading straight, up the steep Santiam Wagon Road, like I did. And if you’re not into popping tires on lava, skip the trail on the east side of Clear Lake. The trail that skirts the west side can be busy, but it’s a headache spared. After riding the lava side myself, I’m ready to dive into Clear Lake—and maybe not come up again.


Carmen Reservoir 58.5 miles northwest of Bend via Highway 20 and OR-126

I sleep in a National Forest pull-off near the McKenzie River Trail, deciding to hit another lake before heading back to the Monday morning workday. Not having much time, I head to Carmen Reservoir. Not much to see here besides the babbling waters of the McKenzie flowing into the reservoir and the movements of countless insects flying above the water, dipping in periodically and creating tiny waves. As compared to the rush of the workaday world and its demand to be detail-oriented, I prefer this version of “leaning in”—noticing the tiny creatures that otherwise go unnoticed. I barely make it to work by 9 am. Shower? I do that at noon, when I head home for an hour. Maybe my co-workers notice the messy hair and bedraggled look; maybe they think it’s just another Monday.

Tam MacArthur Rim looms over Three Creek Lake south of Sisters.


Taylor Lake Roughly 52 miles west of Bend via the Cascade Lakes Highway and Forest Roads 4635, 4630 and 640

Monday goes smoothly, so I take an ambitious approach to the next adventure. Irish and Taylor Lakes are two of the lesser-known lakes accessed via the Cascade Lakes Highway, and require a high-clearance vehicle. No, seriously—don’t try this with your Subaru. Getting there involves driving past Little Cultus Lake and continuing on a bumpy Forest Road for a mere 4 miles—which might not seem like much, but 45 minutes of deep ruts and potholes later and you’ll see why this is one of the most remote lakes on this tour. One SUV passes me, so I slow down and ask how it is up there. “Mosquitoes!” the couple cries as they

Nicole Vulcan

wave their hands, roll up their windows and promptly move along. I shoo away a few intrepid skeeters that enter through my window, not ready to give up. When I make it to Taylor Lake, it’s nearing dusk. I open the door only to have the truck’s cab swarmed by a few dozen giant mosquitoes. I quickly hop back into the truck and set to mass mosquito murder. Mostly, my visit to Taylor Lake consists of eating salami and cheese and reading in the back seat of my truck, which I outfitted with a futon as a makeshift camper bed. At pitch dark my dog and I venture out, the mosquitoes now gone. I’d planned to paddle Taylor, the first of the pair, in the evening, and then to venture to the adjacent Irish Lake in the morning. Due to the swarm, my paddling consists of a quick early-morning buzz around Taylor in near-freezing temperatures, the beach sand so cold that the water is actually warmer on my bare feet.

Little Cultus Lake Roughly 48.5 miles west of Bend via the Cascade Lakes Highway and Forest Roads 4635, 4630 and 640

Leaving Taylor Lake in the wee hours, I’m disappointed I haven’t been able to knock a second lake off my list. Since Tuesdays can be hectic days at work, I don’t know if I’ll be able to get to a lake later on. After braving the rough road back to Little Cultus, I decide my dog and I have earned a paddle there. Little Cultus is far less busy than big Cultus—and while they’re allowed here, this morning involves no loud motorboats knocking wakes around. While the lake doesn’t boast sweeping views, it does have a lovely, deep-woods bike trail that skirts the east side of the lake before wending its way around Cultus Lake. Hitting two lakes in one morning, I call it a win that I arrive only 15 minutes late to work.


North Twin Lake Roughly 41 miles southwest of Bend via Highway 97 and County Roads 43, 42 and 4260

Tuesday’s work day ends early, so there’s time to make it to another lake after all. I head toward the Twin Lakes just southeast of Bend, known as ideal rainbow trout fishing spots and not overly crowded. It’s later than I’d like when I arrive, so I head for one of the spiderweb of fire roads around North Twin to sleep. In the morning, mine is the first craft on the water. I guess being a briefcase vagabond who must make it back to work means I even beat the fisherfolk. North Twin is a bit non-descript, save for the birds soaring overhead, but a serene paddle alone on the water is always worth the trip. I make it back to Bend with just enough time to skate into 92.9 for my weekly radio spot, dirty feet hidden under those closed-toe shoes.


Blue Lagoon 37 miles southwest of Bend along the Cascade Lakes Highway

It’s Wednesday and something of a take-a-breath day around the newsroom, so I have a little time to

The money shot of South Sister and Broken Top during an early morning paddle on Little Lava Lake.

contemplate my next move. It’s gotta be somewhat more remote, I resolve, and perhaps requiring a short hike. I settle on Blue Lagoon, an off-the-beaten-path spot near the headwaters of the Deschutes River. Getting there requires finding a trailhead on the left side of the road, about ½ mile past the turnoff for Little Lava Campground, marked by the typical bulletin board-style board, but lacking a sign saying anything about Blue Lagoon. Look for a small sign to the right of the bulletin board, pointing to a singletrack trail; don’t make the mistake I did and take the wider doubletrack trail to the left of the board. After hiking for about ½ mile, Blue Lagoon comes into view. Algae and grasses make entry into the water a little daunting—but the serene, and often-deserted, green-blue waters and the view of Mt. Bachelor make wading through the green growth well worth it.


Little Lava Lake Roughly 36.5 west of Bend along the Cascade Lakes Highway

I find a place to sleep on a dirt road pull-off, with another mystical view of Mt. Bachelor looming. I start Thursday by paddling around Little Lava Lake (the actual source of the Deschutes) and soaking in the eye-candy views of the Three Sisters and Bachelor. This lake does allow motorized boats—though I don’t see any. With a stop at the Wanoga pump track on the way back into Bend, the past 24 hours have been nothing short of magic—and it’s still squarely the work week. Do my co-workers care that my hair is more mussed than usual, that my truck is a holy terror of granola bar wrappers, dog hair and spilled whiskey? Nope; and neither do I. I’m tired and this project is stretching me, but it reminds me I can be stretched, and that adventure doesn’t have to wait for the weekend.


Upper Marilyn Lake Roughly 72 miles southwest of Bend via US 97, Crescent Cutoff, OR-58 and Gold Lake Campground/ NF 500

It’s the weekend and I’m making no time to clean the car, the cooler or the futon bed still taking up the back seat. I take a day or so off to go to a concert, and then I aim for a two-for-one by checking out the little-known pair of Marilyn lakes, roughly 30 miles east of the mountain biking mecca of Oakridge. The closer of the two, Lower Marilyn, is a mere ¼ mile from the parking area. Some folks blasting new country from a battered speaker are posted up at the junction with the lake, so I make my way to Upper Marilyn, less than a mile hike, which I have to myself. The north end, where I put in, has a few poky trees in the water, so I’m extra careful not to get a hole in my boat. This side also has a view of Diamond Peak nosing its way above the trees; by the time I paddle to the other side, it’s hidden below the conifers.


Lower Marilyn Lake Roughly 72 miles southwest of Bend via US 97, Crescent Cutoff, OR-58 and Gold Lake Campground/ NF 500

As I paddle on Lower Marilyn, hawks and osprey circle above me, maybe setting their sights on my small dog, who by this time is so at home on the sit-ontop that he tries to get on before I even have the thing blown up. Unlike me, he never cares what his hair looks like when 9 am rolls around. Maybe I’m slowly learning to be like him. It’s nearing the end of this adventure, and while it’s something of a relief, I know I’ve knocked a lot off my list of adventure spots during these 10 days—10 days which I could have easily frittered away at bars or the movies or in some other, less ambitious pursuit. Like staying late at work. SW

Left, some less-than-ideal algae at Blue Lagoon didn’t stop this paddler from experiencing the spot’s aquamarine delights. Middle, Diamond Peak over Lower Marilyn Lake. Right, camp life; whiskey required.

Cali-Reggae Kings

Rebelution headlines Clear Summer Nights, with special guest Stephen Marley and more


By Alan Sculley Gus Black

Rebelution is hardly sitting on its Grammy nomination as the band hits the road and churns out new music.

California-based music collective, Controlled Substance Recordings. Despite not having a high-profile record label, the album reached No. 4 on “Billboard” magazine’s Top Reggae Albums chart. The group’s next album, 2009’s “Bright Side of Life,” did even better, topping “Billboard’s” Top Reggae Albums chart, setting the stage for the next two albums, “Peace of Mind” and “Count Me In,” to not only extend the string of No. 1 reggae albums, but debut in the top 15 on “Billboard’s” overall Top 200 chart. “Falling into Place” became the fourth-straight Rebelution album to reach No. 1 on the Top Reggae Albums chart, and stayed on the chart for 60 weeks. It didn’t fare quite as well on the Top 200, debuting at No. 32. Still, the Grammy nomination confirmed that the 2016 release was yet another success.

Rachmany said being nominated for the Grammy didn’t add any pressure to the making of the group’s sixth studio album, “Free Rein,” released June 15. But the band put extensive effort into the project, and Rachmany says it’s his favorite album. “It definitely wasn’t a simple, fast process,” he explained. “I mean, we spent a year and a half to two years just working on these songs, from the demo versions to the final product. Yeah, I really feel like this is a great representation of our work.” The band’s ambition and confidence are evident in the “Free Rein” project. As always, Rachmany was the lead songwriter for the project, but he stepped up his involvement in the studio by producing all but three of the 11 tracks with able assistance from engineer Keith Armstrong.

“I think we kind of missed being a little more hands-on with the process, and that was one of the main reasons why we wanted to produce this ourselves,” Rachmany said. “Free Reign” leans strongly toward reggae (“Celebrate,” “Rise On Top” and Settle Down Easy” fall squarely in that style), but also branches out on the acoustic ballads “Healing” and “Constellation,” and another track, “Trap Door,” that leans more toward R&B and rock. Rachmany hears some elements of Rebelution’s earliest music in the new album. “I think that this album might be a little bit less produced than ‘Falling Into Place.’ That might be why it sounds a little bit more rootsy, like our first two albums, ‘Courage To Grow’ and ‘Bright Side of Life,’” Rachmany said, commenting on the musical direction of “Free Rein.” “I think that this album still has a lot of bit of different stuff. But I do think the songs that have more of a reggae groove were engineered, mixed and mastered in a way that was very similar to our old stuff. So I do think we kind of went back a little bit to that sound.”  SW Rebelution

ebelution’s previous album, “Falling into Place,” gave the group a new form of recognition when it earned the band its first Grammy award nomination. The nomination for Best Reggae Album was a further indication that the California-based band has become one of the leading acts in the crowded Cali-reggae genre that has exploded in popularity over the past decade. While it was certainly a feather in the band’s cap, singer/guitarist Eric Rachmany doesn’t see the Grammy recognition as having had that much of an impact on Rebelution’s career or how the group goes about its business. “For me, it’s not really that important to win any sort of awards, but I think because of that, I think it opened some eyes,” he said in a recent phone interview. “But to tell you the truth, I don’t think we’ve ever had one song or one album that propelled us to a new level. It’s always been a steady increase with Rebelution. To this day, we really feel like our music gets spread by word of mouth.” In 2004, Rebelution began building a career that shows no signs of slowing, after Rachmany met bandmates Rory Carey (keyboards) Wesley Finley (drums) and Marley D. Williams (bass) while attending college in the Santa Barbara area.   The group took a do-it-yourselfapproach, self-producing a self-titled 2006 EP, followed by its first full-length album, “Courage to Grow,” in 2007, which was released through the

Celebrating Mosaic Medical’s Healthcare Heroes Lynn Martin Memorial Fund

Honoring our first Executive Director Lynn Martin lived her life in service to others. She spent each day fulfilling her life’s mission of helping everyone without reservation. While she was taken before her time, her compassion, sincerity and passion for helping those in need still live on at Mosaic Medical. As Mosaic Medical’s first Executive Director, she made sure that our clinicians and staff were not only addressing our patients’ physical health but were also helping their social needs. No patient was ever turned away due to their insurance status, income level, or country of origin and no request was too big for the staff to try to help. If a patient needed antibiotics but couldn’t afford it because they had just paid rent, Lynn figured out how to get the medication paid for. When a terminally ill single parent patient needed legal support to establish custody for his children when he passed, our care team was there for him every step of the way.

This culture of supporting patients because it’s the right thing to do is still carried out today across Mosaic’s 15 clinics in Central Oregon. Whether a patient is seen at a School-Based Health Center or one of our larger clinics, you can expect that our staff will go above and beyond to improve their life because we sincerely want to support every patient’s health and well-being. If you would like to carry on Lynn’s mission and make a difference in the life of one person, please consider making a donation to the Lynn Martin Memorial Fund. Any gift, big or small will improve the lives of those in our community. You will see your dollars at work in the smile of a boy who just received a new pair of glasses and in the embrace of an elderly man who can now walk without pain because of new orthotics. These little things are BIG things in the lives of our patients and with your help, we can change many lives together. Visit today to make your donation to the Lynn Martin Memorial Fund.

With us for 15 years...

Mike Templeton

Founding Board of Directors member

Linda Hatch, FNP

Megan Haase, FNP

Tina Busby, MD

Elva Lopez

Linda lives and works in Prineville as a Family Nurse Practitioner and was one of the major forces behind the founding of Mosaic Medical. Linda saw the need in Prineville for accessible medical care for all when community members were visiting the emergency room because it was the only place they could receive care. She says “I have seen the community and organization grow over the years and I feel so very fortunate to have had the opportunity to help build a safety net to support thousands in improving their lives.”

Megan began as Mosaic’s second provider when Mosaic was first opened in 2002. She worked for several years treating patients in Prineville and Bend and then became a Medical Director and eventually Chief Executive Officer, a role she continues in today. She has dedicated her life’s work to improving access to healthcare for those who need it most and transforming the way that healthcare is delivered for all Central Oregonians.

Dr. Busby started at Mosaic Medical in May 2003 as a family practice physician. Over the years, she has worked at the Prineville, East Bend Redmond, Internal Medicine and Bridges Health clinics and helped found an integrated Mosaic clinic within Deschutes County Behavioral Health for the most severe and persistent mentally ill in Deschutes County where she currently spends most of her time. She says, “working at Mosaic Medical allows me to have a direct impact on the health and well-being of my community every day and I can’t imagine doing anything else.” 

Elva began working at Mosaic Medical as a receptionist in October 2002. Over the last 15 years, she has been a receptionist, interpreter, outreach worker, Community Health Worker Program Coordinator, and is currently the Community Health Worker for the Bridges Health clinic. Elva says, “I am proud to work for an organization that helps their patients so much with not only their medical needs but their mental and social needs as well which is integral to any person’s well-being.”


Mike was part of a small group of community members in Prineville who saw a need for medical care for everyone in Crook County. He helped write the original federal grant and application for nonprofit status that established Mosaic Medical, then called Ochoco Community Clinic. Always a tireless advocate for those in need, he led Mosaic through the expansion of sites from just Prineville to Bend then Madras and then Redmond and the branching out of providing just medical care to integrated behavioral health care and recently dental care.

Sunriver Music Festival opens Friday Celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday included in this year’s celebration By Elizabeth Warnimont Photos provided by Sunriver Music Festival

From left: clarinet soloist Benjamin Lulich, soprano Courtney Huffman, pianist Drew Petersen—who performs Friday at the Tower Theatre—and pianist Kenny Broberg.

“The other pianist, coming in at the tail end of the festival, will have two performances. His name is Kenny Brobeg, the 2017 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition silver medalist. That’s exciting stuff. They’re both these young, up-and-coming, amazing musicians.” Petersen will be the featured soloist for the opening concert at the Tower Friday. Broberg will perform a solo piano concert Aug. 19, as well as performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17 in G Major at the festival’s final concert Aug. 22. Two of the festival’s Young Artist Scholarship alumni are also on the roster. Courtney Huffman, the soprano voice for the Aug. 17 Pops Concert, was an award recipient for eight years, and featured solo clarinetist Benjamin Lulich, who will perform Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A major Aug. 12, won the award

seven years in a row. “Ben has a long history with us,” Beezley says. “He was a winner for seven years. We helped support him with scholarships through high school and college. And now he’s the principal clarinetist at the Seattle Symphony, and our principal clarinetist. It’s so fun to see. Ten years ago, would we have ever thought Dan would be back as our principal clarinetist? It’s a nice success story.” The festival’s Young Artist Scholarship program is 90 percent funded by individual contributions, according to Beezley. “It is very well supported by our community, the Bend and Sunriver

community. It’s a 23-year-old program we’ve been doing since 1996. So it has some history. Now we’re starting to see what these students are doing as professional musicians. “Some of the other music education programs we do in southern Deschutes County are very dependent on grants, as well as individual donations. But the YAS scholarship program has a life of its own. We’re fortunate.” The Sunriver Music Festival orchestra is conducted by Artistic Director George Hanson.

end is among thousands of cities celebrating the life and works of Leonard Bernstein this year, the 100th anniversary of the prolific composer’s birth. The 2018 Sunriver Music Festival, kicking off with a performance at the Tower Theatre in Bend on Friday, will also celebrate Bernstein, but will be far from a single-composer event. “All of the works in the series will have some connection to Bernstein,” says the festival’s Executive Director, Pamela Beezley. “The 100th birthday is a theme that many orchestras and festivals around the world are celebrating this year, and we are doing a lot of great Bernstein music, his own compositions, (but also) including pieces that he is famous for either conducting or arranging. Every concert has some element of Bernstein involved in it.” Friday’s opening concert program concludes with George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.” “There is a famous video of him performing that,” Beezley points out. Many of the musicians for this year’s festival come from the Pacific Northwest region, most from Portland or Eugene, though some come from as far away as Florida and Oklahoma. Festival coordinators seek out host families for visiting musicians each year. “Some of our musicians who have been coming a long time, they have established a friendship with a host family. They all look forward to seeing each other,” Beezley says. “This year, some of our longtime regulars are taking a leave of absence, so we’re bringing in some younger, new professional musicians who have great enthusiasm. They’re excited to be in Central Oregon. It creates this great energy.” Some of those new additions come with impressive accolades. “We have a couple of really amazing young pianists coming in,” Beezley says. “One, at the first concert, Drew Petersen, just won the American Pianists Association award. He’ll be performing the Rhapsody in Blue. Drew is 24 years old.

Old School Religion

Ancient faith takes root in Central Oregon with the help of Father Damian Kuolt


Story and photo by Richard Sitts


ome Central Oregonians might be surprised to learn that a 2,000-yearold religion is celebrated in a cozy chapel, tucked away in a retail mall on Northeast Division Street in Bend. The Saint Jacob Orthodox Christian Church of Central Oregon can be found in the Whistlestop Business Center between the Orchid Thai Restaurant and Plantd. Leading the weekly services is Father Damian Kuolt, who, along with his wife, Joanna, landed in Bend about a year and a half ago. The church hosts Saturday evening vespers at 7 and the divine liturgy, “worship of the people,” Sunday mornings at 10. The local church has been in existence for about a dozen years, Kuolt says, backed by a handful of families. A recent honor was hosting a visit by Bishop Benjamin of San Francisco and the West, who also visited when the local church was getting started. Because Kuolt, who’s 67, is currently recovering from a successful openheart, mitral valve replacement surgery, Sunday services will continue with interim help. There will be no Saturday vespers until Kuolt’s expected return later this month. He says the Orthodox Church is the second largest Christian body in the world, behind Catholicism. He

teaches Orthodoxy 101 and calls it “true worship and belief,” the original teaching of Christianity. “We’re the church that doesn’t care what your personal beliefs are. The important thing is what the apostles believed. Let go of your opinions and try to learn what those who encountered Christ believed,” Kuolt says. Kuolt is originally from Kent, Wash., but his family’s roots in Central Oregon run deep. His family started the Thousand Trails campground near La Pine, and he knows Bend from the 1970s and the 1980s, when he and Joanna would bring their four kids here. They’ve been married for 47 years, and those kids— three daughters and a son—now range in age from 31 to 41. For 27 years, his grandfather was a Lutheran missionary in India, where Kuolt’s father was born and raised. Out of high school, Kuolt went to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs to major in astrophysics. He was on a five-year fast track to go to flight school, but soon figured out he was being groomed to become a helicopter pilot headed for Vietnam. “I was half conscientious objector and half scared to death.” He attended for two years and then “bailed out,” he says.

In 1970, he had $50 and a bus ticket to Los Angeles, where he ended up working as a studio guitarist at Hollywood Sound Recorders. Kuolt says he became involved in the Orthodox Church in the 1980s. In 1977, he got involved in a “freewheeling non-denominational” church before finding the Orthodox Church, and by 1988, he was received into the latter. It officially became the Orthodox Church in America when given independence in 1971 by the Russian Orthodox Church. The OCA is the second largest Orthodox Church in the world, behind the Greek Orthodox Church, according to Kuolt. “You could call it the church of martyrs because they won’t give up what they believe,” he says. Kuolt says a pending goal of his is to open a coffeehouse/bookstore “where people come to read and contemplate and discuss what’s important in life” and where “loving hospitality is the goal.” He points out that this has been done successfully by the church in Colorado Springs, Colo., where readers of a local paper have voted it “Best of

ARTWATCH Two new shows at Bend Art Center This month, Milly Dole is showcasing her most recent work on the Atelier 6000 featured members wall. Entitled “Muse of Creation,” the work is a series of prints exploring how we’re connected to and inspired by the natural world. Dole moved to Bend five years ago. Her love for printmaking began while in high school in New Zealand. Originally inspired by street art and the freedom of the structure, Dole found combining this love with traditional printmaking allowed her to better explore her creative side. Her work is bold and graphic in detail, with a great amount of emotion that lends a storytelling quality to her visual images. “I love the combining

the Springs” seven years in a row. The shop’s motto is, “Fresh coffee, ancient wisdom.” Kuolt has had some surprising brushes with some famous names. In Seattle, he had the same guitar teacher (Jim Day) as did Jimi Hendrix, though he and Hendrix never crossed paths. He could have gotten in early on Microsoft because of a connection to Bill Gates. Had he decided to practice dojo martial arts, he would have studied with Bruce Lee. Plus, he presented seminars in the 1970s with the scholar Joseph Campbell. Kuolt glosses over these tidbits as he easily shifts to other subjects that come fast and furious during our conversation that stretches well into a second hour.  SW

By Teafly Peterson of the traditional aspect of printmaking and new imagery and updating it a little that way,” says Dole. This is the second show for Dole, who was ecstatic to find a printmaking shop she could work in. Her love for printmaking was put on hold for a number of years before discovering A6. In the past, she found most print studios too expensive or not available at all in other places she lived, but reports that Atelier 6000 gave her a place to work, learn, explore and grow her work. Also on display this month at Bend Art Center is Big Ink I, a traveling exhibition of large-scale woodcuts by 15 artists from all over the country. The woodblocks are at least 24 inches by 36 inches in size and originated at the Whit Print Studio in Eugene in 2017. In September, Bend Art Center will have a second display of Big Ink prints.  SW

Adventures at The Pancake Wagon


By Lisa Sipe Lisa Sipe

Rawmona Always Wants to Eat Cake It’s a match made on Craigslist. Basia and Caley Brach of The Pancake Wagon are partners with Andy and Cambria Savage of JC’s Bar & Grill.


id you notice The Pancake Wagon is closed?” Darlene Veenhuizen of the Tough Cookie podcast asked me, picking up a slice of grassy Cloud Cap cheese from Cascadia Creamery at a summer cheese party. “Yes,” I replied, “I thought they might be closed for a summer break.” Veenhuizen said, “I think they are trying to expand, they have a GoFundMe campaign.” I immediately sent owners Caley and Basia Brach a Facebook message to find out. The Pancake Wagon has been closed since the beginning of July. Supportive customers, who still want their stacks,

truck are real. The Brachs prepared everything at a commercial kitchen and brought it to the camper. If they ran out of batter they couldn’t just make more without leaving customers. The summer heat cranked the temperature in the camper up to uncomfortable heights. Some days it would reach 130 degrees. “If the business can’t grow, we can’t grow,” Basia Brach said passionately. The couple tried to grow last summer, but their business manager, who was the best man at their wedding, died by suicide. They took a little time off from the business for some needed

“It feels like we are getting married and creating a new family.” —CAMBRIA SAVAGE pancake burritos and pancake muffins, have been leaving the Brachs voicemails, saying, “The city is missing your food.” Later, I met Caley Brach at JC’s Bar and Grill downtown. When I arrived, I found Caley and Basia Brach in a booth with the owners of JC’s, Cambria and Andy Savage. When I asked what was happening, Caley Brach looked at me with a bright smile—the kind that lights up a room—and immediately went into the story. “We realized we maxed out on how much we can do in our camper. We couldn’t keep up with demand and we knew we needed to do something.” The challenges of running a food

self care and then found a way to get back to their 18- to 20-hour days. This summer, they say their business grew by 175 percent over last year. By July they decided to see what they could do to grow. The Brachs wanted to find a space where they could do prep and service in one place, with room to serve more people and offer an expanded beverage menu for the 21-and-over crowd. To make this happen they started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $15,000. Their customers were supportive, leaving voicemails with ideas including where they found vacant commercial space and which food lot they should join. A friend sent them a Craigslist ad

that read, “Food Cart Business Wanted for Brick and Mortar Space in Downtown Bend.” The ad was from JC’s Bar & Grill. The Savages, who bought the business almost two years ago, had expertise in the bar but didn’t want to work the kitchen anymore. The Brachs got excited and contacted the Savages. The Pancake Wagon will now be part of JC’s Bar & Grill. The joint venture should be launched by the end of August. The Brachs will serve breakfast and lunch until 3 pm and then offer chicken wings, mozzarella sticks, burgers and diner food until close. Meanwhile, Pancake Wagon fans with families won’t be missing out. Minors are allowed in the restaurant until 7 pm. And like the Brachs had hoped, adult beverages will be on the menu. You might even see a signature Pancake Wagon cocktail with whiskey and maple syrup. Insider tip: on Sundays, bottomless mimosas are $12. Cambria Savage told me, “We wanted someone with a following. We’ve been working hard to change the vibe at JC’s Bar & Grill to who we are.” When she spoke of the new partnership she said, “It feels like we are getting married and creating a new family.”  SW JC’s Bar & Grill with The Pancake Wagon

It’s hard not to fall in love with Rawmona. She says things like, “Eat your cake. And if anyone lectures you about your weight, eat them too.” Rawmona isn’t a real person; she’s a stick figure illustration with fruit for clothes, created out of Karla Diaz Cano’s love for food, nature and art. Rawmona has existed on greeting cards and wall prints since 2014, but four weeks ago Rawmona’s Kitchen showed up in the form of cake jars, muffins and donuts at the NorthWest Crossing Farmers Market. Diaz Cano, who has baked since she was a kid and has many family members in the food industry, turned her love of making healthy baked goods into a business. They’re made with non-GMO, mostly organic ingredients, are gluten-free and contain no refined sugar or artificial flavors. Sometimes the goodies are vegan. Diaz Cano found those clean ingredients made sweets accessible again for people with allergies and dietary restrictions. She says quite a few people tell her no one in Bend was making cakes they can eat until now. The cakes come in flavors including lime and berry, carrot maple cashew and coconut peach. Diaz Cano says Rawmona is the “child always wanting to eat cake and loves color.” She’s “the little girl in me that loves to create and play. She’s in everything that I make.” You can find Rawmona’s Kitchen at the NorthWest Crossing Farmers Market until the end of the season or place a custom order online.  SW Rawmona’s Kitchen 541-306-3514

like a rip-off of X-Men mixed with a dystopian YA thriller, “The Darkest Minds” hasn’t done anything to distinguish itself from the pack.

The weirdest film in the franchise by far, “Fallen Kingdom” takes the established “Jurassic Park” framework and adds some of the schlockiest ideas since the last “Sharknado” movie. Enjoy the hilarious stupidity. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

LEAVE NO TRACE: A powerful and mesmerizing look at a father and his daughter attempting to live off of the land in the middle of Portland’s Forest Park. Featuring another captivating performance from Ben Foster and featuring flawless direction from Debra Granik, this film should not be missed. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN: The whole gang is back to their old shenanigans of singing, dancing and reminiscing about the good old days of Abba. This time we delve back into the past and see how all our favorite relationships started…I’m guessing with music. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT: Somehow these movies stay incredibly consistent and entertaining even as this newest entry in the franchise escalates the series to dizzying new heights. At 147 minutes, the film is almost exhausting as it boasts some of the most impressive action sequences ever put to film. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

DEATH OF A NATION: Dinesh D’Souza is a phony. I’m sure you know this. His documentaries are so hysterically and transparently biased that they would make Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl blush. But I’m sure D’Souza’s pro-Trump swill is balanced, since Trump just pardoned him for illegal campaign contributions. That makes perfect sense. See full commentary on p 33. 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

EIGHTH GRADE: Bo Burnham has long been one of the most painfully incisive comedians in America. With “Eighth Grade,” he brings a fresh eye to an awkward coming-of-age story. Burnham’s brilliant mind gives this film an urgency and heart-rending honesty that’s missing from most films of this ever-expanding genre. See full review on p 33. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES: The hilarious cartoon this film is based on has been taking the air out of the superhero genre for years and this feature adventure is no different. Perfect for kids and parents alike, the Teen Titans aim to save the world from self-serious heroes and their fans. 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. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

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

dropping documentary tells the story of three identical triplets who were separated at birth, not finding one another until their late-teens. Once they start asking questions about why they were separated in the first place, the story goes from uplifting to downright strange and chilling. Truly unpredictable. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX


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

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

SNEAKY PETE: I know I’m late to the

party on this, but “Sneaky Pete” is a delight from top to bottom. Giovanni Ribisi plays a con man fresh out of prison who impersonates the grandson of a family of bail bondsmen. Every episode manages to balance comedy, tension and “Ocean’s 11”-esque plot twists with an assured and ridiculously entertaining hand. Now Streaming on Amazon

Childhoods SCREEN Collective Middle school will always be the same By Jared Rasic

Linda Kallrus

I’ll be shocked if this isn’t one of the best films of the year around Oscar time. “Eighth Grade” is in some ways a much more incisive look at growing up because it finds the heartbreaking center of reaching puberty in a time of omnipresent technology, yet effortlessly connecting it to generations who grew up without cell phones. Yes, there’s something jaw-dropping about seeing kids who’ve had Snapchat since fifth grade,


Parenting…amirite? I actually have no idea.

but it doesn’t fundamentally change the actual act of growing up. Elsie Fisher gives a lovely performance as Kayla Day, an acne-spotted eighth grader finishing up her last few days of school while nervously anticipating the looming future of high school. She’s awkward, sweet and in love with her phone (like most teens her age), but she’s not shallow and self-obsessed. She makes YouTube videos for a non-existent audience, giving advice to other

kids about “being true to yourself” and “putting yourself out there” while struggling to follow her own wisdom. Watching Fisher navigate her way through horny teenage boys, mean girls and teachers desperately trying to connect isn’t as painfully awkward as it could have been. Burnham doesn’t care about making the audience squirm uncomfortably as much as he wants us to desperately root for Kayla as she tries to be a legitimate human being at a time

when we’re all still figuring out what that means. Bo Burnham is best known for his stand-up comedy which infuses music, absurdity and pain while somehow still bringing belly laughs. His direction here is astoundingly incisive and assured for this being Burnham’s debut. This could have been a cringe comedy, but instead the film is a study in empathy that’s way more interested in finding the connective tissue in humanity more than complaining about the millennials. I never wanted “Eighth Grade” to end. I could’ve watched another hour of Kayla navigating her way past cruelty and heartbreak, rooting for her the entire time. I’ll be shocked if this isn’t one of the best films of the year around Oscar time. It deserves to find an audience the way “Lady Bird” did, because anyone who sees it will fall in love with the optimistic beauty on display.  SW Eighth Grade

Modern Propaganda

When “Fake News” disguises itself as documentary By Jared Rasic


courtesy of 20th Century Fox

t’s somewhat exhausting living in a time in which “Fake News” has become a rallying cry. When it first became a meme, it seemed like a genuinely important distinction to make for people who’ve spent most of their lives swallowing everything the “media” was dishing out. Not only does everyone want to believe the stuff they see on social media is accurate, but they hope it validates the opinions they’re holding onto for dear life.

Documentaries don’t need to be unbiased, but they can’t play fast and loose with the facts. Sometime in the last year, “Fake News” has ceased to be a rallying cry for Americans to better vet their news sources, but has instead morphed into another way for the far left and the far right to better exist inside their own echo chambers. The idea (as so many good ideas do) has been repurposed by Trumpsters and Bernie Bros alike as a way to put their fingers in their ears and

It used to be easy to tell when you were looking at horrific propaganda.

blow a raspberry at any information that doesn’t fit their ideological paradigm. A perfect example of this is the new offering from political pundit/filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, playing a one-man game of “You’re the Fascist” for the last few years, to horrendous results. D’Souza so desperately wants to have the juice to influence elections that he makes claims that don’t stand up under the briefest amount of scrutiny.

His newest pit of despair is called “Death of a Nation,” featuring a poster filled with Antifa riots, slaves in chains and the faces of Trump and Abe Lincoln morphed together to add a bit of nightmare fuel. I’m not sure neocons or liberals would go into the film expecting accuracy, but the fact that Trump gave D’Souza a full pardon after his 2014 sentencing for illegal campaign contributions is downright hilarious. Just a mild

conflict of interest there. Documentaries don’t need to be unbiased, but they can’t play fast and loose with the facts. Michael Moore (who the right sees as the liberal version of D’Souza) editorializes throughout his documentaries all the time, but it’s hard to argue partisanship in films such as “Roger & Me” and “Sicko.” Those films take topical hot button issues and try to get to the truth behind the rhetoric, whereas D’Souza’s films resemble a PowerPoint presentation given to the white middle class from the safety of a bomb shelter. It used to be much easier to spot propaganda when it was put before you. Whether it’s D.W. Griffith’s “Birth of a Nation” or Riefenstahl’s “Triumph of the Will,” you could look at them and feel the dirtiness creeping beneath your skin. Our instincts won’t allow us to swallow lies that big. D’Souza’s films are sneakier, but just as manipulative and ultimately destructive. In 2018, with so much media constantly bombarding us from all sides, it’s harder to spot the propaganda even as it stares us in the face…or as it plays at our local theater chain.  SW



f I make something half as beautiful as Bo Burnham’s “Eighth Grade” during the course of my life, I will die a satisfied man. Making a coming-of-age movie can be such a gutsy proposition because of our individualized middle school and high school experiences. “Lady Bird” was such a successful movie because it found the honesty in the relationship between a mother and daughter, not because it found some profound truth about our collective American childhoods.

A New Adventure

GO HERE By David Sword

Bikepacking offers a way to get out and about, without a pack on your back By David Sword

growing group of adventurers in Central Oregon is seeking more creative means to escape the crowded campgrounds and trailheads. Like peanut butter and chocolate, avocado and toast or whisky and an ice cube, bikepacking is earning its rightful place on the recreational menu. Rather than sticking to roadways and paved paths, bikepackers cobble together routes on gravel and dirt roads, single track trails and off beaten paths. Gary Meyer, who recently rode 2,745 unsupported miles from Banff to Mexico, got hooked because he says he “loved riding bikes and backpacking for years, but no longer enjoy(s) wearing a backpack. Bikepacking was a natural fit for me, because the bike carries the load.” How to start bikepacking Get fit: Riding a bike on bumpy trails with added weight of gear does require some fitness. USA Cycling Coach and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Chris Glover recommends simply starting by getting on your bike. “Get to know your bike and get in as much mileage as you are able, because lack of training is setting yourself up for potential injury. We have to walk before we can run,” he says. Glover also notes that “cyclists tend to put emphasis on the legs, but the hips and core are the ‘powerhouse.’ Weakness here sets us up for many types of overuse injuries and imbalances.” Get packed: Hardtail mountain bikes and drop-bar gravel bikes are best. Plussize and fat tire rigs produce a smoother ride while providing more tire contact area for loose dirt or gravel.

The mantra of bikepacking: Less is more.

“Ride what you have. No need for a special bike,” says Meyer. Commercially available soft-bags, like those made by Ortlieb and Revelate Designs, have helped fuel the growing interest in bikepacking, but they’re not absolutely necessary. Dry bags and compression stuff sacks work great for loading up the space in front of your handlebars and behind the seatpost. Meyer says, “put your gear in a dry bag and strap it to your bike with a ski strap. For your first foray, pick up a burrito for dinner and breakfast on the way out of town. Leave the stove and cookware at home, as there is no need to complicate things.” Tom Karren, Bend local and avid bikepacker, remembers the best advice he ever received. “A local shop owner told me not to get the largest capacity bag I was pining over. I said I WANT IT. He said,

35 “No you don’t. You will just fill it up.” A ground pad, a lightweight sleeping bag combined with tarp, hammock or tent are all bike-packable overnight gear options. Light is the name of the game. “I carry about 10 pounds less gear than I did when I took my first big trip,” says Karren. “It only takes a few times out to fully understand the backcountry mantra, ‘Everything you need and nothing you don’t.” Get going: Get a map. Make a plan. Having basic bike maintenance skills, like fixing a flat or broken chain, will keep you rolling during times of mechanical duress. Karren says, “Take a modest repair and medical kit. You only need enough to get you to the next town as opposed to performing triage to the 7th Infantry, or having a toolkit big enough to open a bike shop.” With any endurance activity, “It’s important to fuel our body as we continue activity or we’ll simply run out of gas and bonk,” says Glover. “I recommend regular intake of carbohydrates throughout the ride in some form at least once an hour.” Quick to emphasize its importance, Glover says, “Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! If you wait until you are thirsty, you might already be too late.”  SW

Waldo Lake offers spectacular biking, hiking, boating and camping As Oregon’s second largest natural lake, Waldo Lake makes a great destination for hikers, bikers, campers and boaters. It’s one of the clearest lakes in Oregon and captures second place for the deepest, after Crater Lake. The lake is naturally fed from snowmelt and springs, limiting the amount of organic material in the water. On a clear and windless day, you can see over 100 feet down into the ever-darkening blue abyss. As the lake sits at 5,400 feet in elevation, the winter snows take longer to melt—meaning Olympic-class mosquitos flourish throughout the summer months. The heat of late summer tends to knock the mass of blood suckers down, but heed the warning and take precaution. Hardtail or trail class full suspension bikes are the norm for the 21-mile Waldo Lake Trail/Shoreline/Jim Weaver Loop mountain bike trail. It has some easy sections, but if you plan on the loop, prepare for some steep and rugged climb/descents, which have taken some riders by surprise. Allow two to five hours for the complete loop, depending on your fitness/tech level. There are many great spots to snap photos, eat lunch—and eat a second lunch.  SW Directions: Take Hwy. 97 southbound from Bend to the Crescent Lake cutoff in Crescent, and then west on Hwy 58. Head past Willamette Pass ski area and turn right at Waldo Lake Road/FR 5898. There are three campgrounds available on the lake including Shadow Bay, Islet and North Waldo CG.

16 SUPER DIAMOND Special Guest: Company Grand




Why are there lots of bridal magazines but no magazines for grooms? What does that imply? —A Male

Consider men’s general lack of interest in wedding planning. Of course, if men did the organizing, there’d probably be a paintball duel to the altar, strippers serving nachos, and a minister who ends the ceremony with: “You may now have a threesome with the bride and her sister.” However, what we could call the “wedding-industrial complex”—with $56 billion in sales in the U.S. in 2017 (per The Wedding Report)—is driven mainly by women (and, more recently—and to a lesser extent—very stylish gay men). So we often hear about “bridezillas”— human nightmares losing it over pickywicky wedding details—but it’s the rare man who even comes close to caring enough to be called a “groomzilla.” In fact, though many women start planning their weddings years before meeting a potential groom, there probably isn’t a guy out there who gave thought to, say, what the centerpieces would be until he absolutely had to: “Um...honey, am I crazy, or is that an electric cattle prod you’re holding?” And frankly, for the average guy getting married, the ideal situation would be to propose, get clocked with a bowling trophy, and wake up 10 months later to one of his bros shaking a tux in his face and saying, “Hose off and get dressed, man. You gotta be at the chapel in an hour!” These sex differences in wedding micromanagement reflect evolved sex differences in what evolutionary psychologists David Buss and David Schmitt call “sexual strategies.” These refer to long-term versus short-term orientation in mating—committed sex versus casual sex. Though there are times when casual sex is the optimal choice for a woman, in general, women tend to benefit more from a “long-term mating strategy”— holding out for men who are willing and able to stick around to protect and provide for their children. (Think handsome prince—and all that “happily ever after” stuff—versus handsome hookup.) Men will suck it up and opt for a longterm relationship for a number of reasons, Buss and Schmitt explain: because being on the hunt is time-, energy-, and resource-sucking and because “highly desirable” women can hold out for commitment. But because a man can, let’s

just say, sheet ‘em and street ‘em and still have a pretty good chance of passing on his genes, men often benefit more from a “short-term sexual strategy”—quantity over quality, or what I call the “I love a parade!” model. Still, this isn’t all that’s driving the average man’s lack of interest in the color of the posies on the dessert table. There’s also the evolved sex difference in status competition—the differing ways men and women compete for status intrasexually (with others of their sex). As I explained recently, a major way men compete for status with other men is by being accompanied by smoking-hot womAmy Alkon en. (Welcome to the Armcandylympics!) These hotties don’t have to be wives or girlfriends; they just shouldn’t look like they’re with a guy simply because his credit card cleared at the rent-a-“model” website. Women, on the other hand, evolved to compete for status with other women by pairing up with the most high-status man they can get. Though we’re living in modern times, we’re still driven by Stone Age psychology. In ancestral times, a woman’s partner’s status would have been a life-or-death issue—affecting the level of “provisioning” (eats, housing) and protection she had for herself and her children. In other words, so-called “princess culture” was created by evolution, not Disney. So little girls, to the great dismay of their progressive parents, are drawn to those stories of the scullery maid who ends up marrying the prince—the rich, high-status, hunky dude (good genes!) who could have any woman but finds our girl uniquely bewitching. A man bewitched is a man less likely to stray—so the fairy tale is actually a commitment fantasy. The “fairy tale wedding” is a celebration of that—the successful completion of an evolutionary imperative, or, as the bride might put it: “Nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyahnyah! You girls fight amongst yourselves for the toothless peasants!” Getting back to the male point of view, a guy gets married because he has become “bewitched” (“fallen in love,” in contemporary terms) and wants a life partner and/or a family and realizes that sex with a string of strippers is not the path to suburban dad-hood. However, even when a man decides to commit to one particular woman, his evolved drive for sexual variety remains. finally answer your question: No man wants to buy “Grooms!” magazine—because a wedding is, in a sense, a giant frothy funeral for his sex life.

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Not even five per-

sky enough to realize when there’s a full moon. But you may not monitor the heavenly cycles closely enough to tune in to the new moon, that phase each month when the lunar orb is invisible. We astrologers regard it as a ripe time to formulate fresh intentions. We understand it to be a propitious moment to plant metaphorical seeds for the desires you want to fulfill in the coming four weeks. When this phenomenon happens during the astrological month of Leo, the potency is intensified for you. Your next appointment with this holiday is August 10th and 11th.

cent of the world’s population lives in a complete democracy. Congratulations to Norway, Canada, Australia, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Denmark, New Zealand, Switzerland, and Sweden. Sadly, three countries where my column is published -- the U.S., Italy, and France -- are categorized as “flawed democracies.” Yet they’re far better than the authoritarian regimes in China and Russia. (Source: The Economist.) I offer this public service announcement as a prelude to your homework assignment. According to my astrological analysis, you will personally benefit from working to bring more democracy into your personal sphere. How can you ensure that people you care about feel equal to you, and have confidence that you will listen to and consider their needs, and believe they have a strong say in shaping your shared experiences?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In her poem “Dogfish,” Virgo poet Mary Oliver writes, “I wanted the past to go away, I wanted to leave it.” Why? Because she wanted her life “to open like a hinge, like a wing.” I’m happy to tell you, Virgo, that you now have more power than usual to make your past go away. I’m also pleased to speculate that as you perform this service for yourself, you’ll be skillful enough to preserve the parts of your past that inspire you, even as you shrink and neutralize memories that drain you. In response to this good work, I bet your life will open like a hinge, like a wing—no later than your birthday, and most likely before that. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran fashion writer Diana Vreeland (1903-1989) championed the beauty of the strong nose. She didn’t approve of women wanting to look like “piglets and kittens.” If she were alive today, she’d be pleased that nose jobs in the U.S. have declined 43 percent since 2000. According to journalist Madeleine Schwartz writing in Garage magazine, historians of rhinoplasty say there has been a revival of appreciation for the distinctive character revealed in an unaltered nose. I propose, Libra, that in accordance with current astrological omens, we extrapolate some even bigger inspiration from that marvelous fact. The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to celebrate and honor and express pride in your idiosyncratic natural magnificence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Maybe happiness is this: not feeling like you should be elsewhere, doing something else, being someone else.” This definition, articulated by author Isaac Asimov, will be an excellent fit for you between now and September 20. I suspect you’ll be unusually likely to feel at peace with yourself and at home in the world. I don’t mean to imply that every event will make you cheerful and calm. What I’m saying is that you will have an extraordinary capacity to make clear decisions based on accurate appraisals of what’s best for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I’ve compiled a list of new blessings you need and deserve during the next 14 months. To the best of my ability, I will assist you to procure them. Here they are: a practical freedom song and a mature love song; an exciting plaything and a renaissance of innocence; an evocative new symbol that helps mobilize your evolving desires; escape from the influence of a pest you no longer want to answer to; insights about how to close the gap between the richest and poorest parts of yourself; and the cutting of a knot that has hindered you for years.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “It has become clear to me that I must either find a willing nurturer to cuddle and nuzzle and whisper sweet truths with me for six hours or else seek sumptuous solace through the aid of eight shots of whiskey.” My Capricorn friend Tammuz confided that message to me. I wouldn’t be surprised if you were feeling a comparable tug. According to my assessment of the Capricorn zeitgeist, you acutely need the revelations that would become available to you through altered states of emotional intelligence. A lavish whoosh of alcohol might do the trick, but a more reliable and effective method would be through immersions in intricate, affectionate intimacy.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Mystic poet Kabir wrote, “The flower blooms for the fruit: when the fruit comes, the flower withers.” He was invoking a metaphor to describe his spiritual practice and reward. The hard inner work he did to identify himself with God was the blooming flower that eventually made way for the fruit. The fruit was his conscious, deeply felt union with God. I see this scenario as applicable to your life, Pisces. Should you feel sadness about the flower’s withering? It’s fine to do so. But the important thing is that you now have the fruit. Celebrate it! Enjoy it!

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Palestinian American writer Susan Abulhawa writes that in the Arab world, to say a mere “thank you” is regarded as spiritless and ungenerous. The point of communicating gratitude is to light up with lively and expressive emotions that respond in kind to the kindness bestowed. For instance, a recipient may exclaim, “May Allah bless the hands that give me this blessing,” or “Beauty is in the eyes that find me beautiful.” In accordance with current astrological omens, I propose that you experiment with this approach. Be specific in your praise. Be exact in your appreciation. Acknowledge the unique mood and meaning of each rich exchange.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you need this advice from mythologist Joseph Campbell: “Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.” He says it’s “a rescue land . . . some field of action where there is a spring of ambrosia—a joy that comes from inside, not something external that puts joy into you—a place that lets you experience your own will and your own intention and your own wish.” Do you have such a place, Taurus? If not, now is a great time to find one. If you do, now is a great time to go there for a spell and renew the hell out of yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): When he was 20 years old, future U.S. President Thomas Jefferson had an awkward encounter with a young woman who piqued his interest. He was embarrassed by the gracelessness he displayed. For two days afterward, he endured a terrible headache. We might speculate that it was a psychosomatic reaction. I bring this up because I’m wondering if your emotions are also trying to send coded messages to you via your body. Are you aware of unusual symptoms or mysterious sensations? See if you can trace them back to their source in your soul.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): There’s a zone in your psyche where selfishness overlaps generosity, where the line between being emotionally manipulative and gracefully magnanimous almost disappears. With both hope and trepidation for the people in your life, I advise you to hang out in that grey area for now. Yes, it’s a risk. You could end up finessing people mostly for your own good and making them think it’s mostly for their own good. But the more likely outcome is that you will employ ethical abracadabra to bring out the best in others, even as you get what you want, too.

Addicted to Weed?

923 SE 3rd ST



NEW LOCATION Is there such a thing as reefer madness? No, at least not compared to heroin and opiates.


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

ou may have made or heard comments about “jonesing for weed,” “needing” to smoke or having a “pot habit.” The idea that someone has a fever for cannabis that can only be treated with more cannabis implies a “cannabis addiction.” Is that a real thing? Can someone become addicted to cannabis in the same manner as an alcoholic, or a regular user of drugs such as opiates, cocaine or heroin? Much like a car that’s been hotboxed, the answers are hazy. The term “addiction” has a fairly broad definition, and the differences between someone with a consistent daily habit of consuming cannabis versus heroin are vast. Merry Jane writer Madison Margolin recently posted a piece that breaks down the issue and the categories of addiction, dependence and disorders. The National Institute of Drug Abuse defines addiction as “...compulsive drug use despite harmful consequences...characterized by an inability to stop using a drug; failure to meet work, social, or family obligations; and, sometimes (depending on the drug), tolerance and withdrawal.” NIDA defines dependence as “... which the body adapts to the drug, requiring more of it to achieve a certain effect (tolerance) and eliciting drug-specific physical or mental symptoms if drug use is abruptly ceased (withdrawal).” So what’s the difference? NIDA continues that “...physical dependence in and of itself does not constitute addiction, but it often accompanies addiction. This distinction can be difficult to discern, particularly with prescribed pain medications, for which the need for increasing dosages can represent tolerance or a worsening underlying problem, as opposed to the beginning of abuse or addiction.” Then there is what the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Vol. 5, defines as a “cannabis use disorder.” Margolin writes “ ...a person must exhibit two to three of 11 criteria to officially qualify, including symptoms like cravings, developing a tolerance or spending a lot of time getting, using or recovering from a given substance.” What about a medical patient who has a craving for pain relief by using cannabis,

who has built up a tolerance from regular use and spends a fair amount of time acquiring and consuming? That checks off three boxes, so...yes? Is reducing or eliminating physical pain truly a “disorder?” Would prescribed opiates be less likely to develop into the same disorder? All signs point to no. The Denver Post recently published an article stating that cannabis addiction is real and rising, affecting 9 percent of cannabis users and 17 percent of those who start in adolescence. Some blame it on the increased potency of THC in flower and the wider availability of concentrates and extracts. Yet Margolin writes, “Research has found that people who smoke stronger forms of cannabis may tend to smoke less, since they titrate their doses themselves.” The 9 percent addiction rate compares to 15 percent for alcohol and cocaine and 24 percent for heroin. The differences in how the body responds to withdrawal from each of these drugs is stark: irritability, anxiousness and a serious case of “Cranky Pants” are symptoms those quitting cannabis may experience. Heroin users get that, plus sweating, nausea, depression, aches and pains, and best of all, up to a week of severe stomach cramping, vomiting and diarrhea. (You know what might be good for those ailments? Anyone?) Prohibitionists cite an increase in admissions at rehab centers for cannabis addiction, but fail to mention a major undercutting qualifier. According to a 2015 study by the Department of Health and Human Services, over 50 percent of those in rehab for cannabis had been sent there by the courts and justice system, often facing jail time as an alternative. In 2013, of the 281,991 people in rehab for cannabis, fewer than 20 percent voluntarily sought out treatment. Anyone who feels cannabis (or any substance) has become detrimental to their well-being should have access to support and services, but perhaps not at the expense of beds in rehab facilities. Those beds are in chronic short supply, and urgently needed by those seeking treatment for heroin and opiates, as a delay in treatment for them can prove fatal. A cannabis user most likely won’t smoke to death waiting for that same bed.
