Letter of the week receives $5 to Palate!

Nope. It’s starts at home. Parents talk in private or on social media and kids act out the aggression. My hometown of South Portland, Maine, I went through this twice. I lived on Maui and they’re always going through it. This is not a problem unique to Bend as many think. How we deal with it reflects how our children deal with it. — Matthew Bryant, via I lived in Sedona, AZ, for 30 years, before I moved to Bend in 1990. Same thing in Sedona. More people, bigger impact. I actually think Bend has done a much better job of dealing with the growth then Sedona does, far from perfect, but I love Bend and love living here. — William Van Buskirk, via

Let’s start this rant with an old classic “Oust the current Bend City Council,” and find a way to stop $1,200 - $1,600 a month for just an apartment! Acknowledge we have a problem and people will stop acting out! This is much more than US vs Them rhetoric. It stems from a very classic and long-term issue. We have Bend Bully aka BendBroadband and for some reason they are still a company, still allowed to screw us, and still allowed to laugh it off? We have City of Bend, Oregon Government that gets called out regularly yet still somehow finds ways to ignore the problems. We have the The Bulletin that moved to a bigger location and forgot about where they came from. And, then there’s you; The Source Weekly! You wanted to know how the “Us” feel about having our Butte vandalized? Well, I am pretty sure we all said the same thing as I, and many others have unanimously cried to you about. The squeeze is on, and we’re not very excited about it if you haven’t noticed? It is the media that can help to put the pressure on the City Council to start taking notice about Central Oregon’s needs!

@bendfirefighters just posted, " Due to wildfires in the area and a high volume of visitors in Bend, our firefighters are experiencing exceptionally high call volumes. If you are driving on the streets of Bend, remember to pull to the right for sirens and lights! Have a safe and fun weekend! Thank you from all of your Bend Firefighters."

Yes, this is not just a Bend problem anymore! Bend is the root of all of Central Oregon’s Housing and traffic problems! You have to now “get lucky” in Redmond in order to find an affordable roof over one’s head! In Prineville, they do not even have enough housing to accommodate its own population and Madras, well Madras is still pretty much the same, except next week when it will have a human army of eclipse goers! But to get to the point here, KTVZ, Zolo Media, and every other form of traditional media needs to put the screws to city officials across Central Oregon and get out on the road and ask a single parent making what was once a good wage how they are making it? It seems redundant and whiny but it actually might set a precedent, and help to make a positive drive towards helping to levy the burden of what we are ALL dealing with! Shit, go ask a wealthy transplant from Kali-For-I how they see Bend now since they caused the price increases! Ask them if they would like to start pumping their own gas, cooking their own food, cleaning their own houses, mowing their own lawns, and painting their pretentious wives nails! Bend is not Lake Tahoe, but it sure seems like it is these days! You know The Source Weekly, I seem to get very very passionate about posts about our region’s little problem, yet every time I whine I wonder if it helps just like they say “Just the Sip.” Just enough to see how it tastes! I wonder if words actually get through? I wonder when enough is enough? I really do wonder if anyone cares?

Two jobs, 3 kids, a single dad, and I still find time to spread my passion about wanting my region to care about its inhabitants!!! Go figure! I expect no more than a pass by this rant from all I called out because......that is the status quo! What’s next? The public will start doing the interviews the traditional media has failed to produce! We the people of Central Oregon will bring to light our issues with the status quo..... Did the region’s leaders think they could hide from a person not being able to afford a frigging basic necessity, A ROOF OVER OUR HEADS? Moreover, to whom ever defaced our public property......... Stop! That is not how you get their attention! Forming a group of like minded individuals and sending letters to those that will listen is the way to communicate our gripes! Peace out!!!!! — Jesse Mark Sweetman, via

Fraught with ongoing issues, we’re making progress, Central Oregon


n regular weeks, this section of our publication is reserved for commentary and inquiry, and often, constructive criticism about the things going on in Central Oregon. It’s an important facet of a vibrant newspaper that aims not only to report on the news and happenings of the region, but also to get people thinking about how we can do better.



Thank you for another great year!

This week, however, is no regular week. In addition to it being the week in which we introduce our Best Of Central Oregon winners for 2017, we’re bringing you an Eclipse Survival Guide, destined to be seen by the throngs who will visit this week. In light of all that, we’re reserving this week’s Opinion page for a few nods. (Don’t worry, dear readers, we’ll be back with the constructive criticism next week!) So let’s break this down by the most salient issues plaguing Central Oregon, shall we? Affordable Housing. Finding homes for the middle-income bracket—either for sale or for rent—is a tough endeavor in Central Oregon, as our ongoing Housing Crisis series attests. However, we’re giving a nod this week to Bend 2030 and its many community partners, who have been diving deep into the barriers to building middle-market housing, and who have proposed 12 strategies that would tackle prohibitive housing codes and other barriers, if adopted. Like what they’re doing? Make it known to your elected officials by attending a public city or county meeting soon. Roads. Yes, there are still potholes. Yes, some roads remain unpaved, halfpaved or otherwise. But you’ve apparently made your views on this issue known, and your public officials in the Oregon State legislature, the

Oregon Department of Transportation and the City of Bend have been listening. In July, the Oregon Legislature passed a $5.3 billion transportation package aimed at fixing the state’s roads and bridges, expanding highways and improving public transportation. Meanwhile, the City of Bend and the Bend City Council reworked the city budget to ensure more roads were repaved or fixed this year, as opposed to waiting. As for the DOT/City of Bend efforts to make Third Street compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act? Keep on keepin’ on. We need it. Tourism and Public Safety. By now, the only way that you aren’t aware of the presence of the Great American Eclipse on Aug. 21 is if you actually live in a cave—though since the Source isn’t delivered to any caves, chances are you know about it. While talking about the impact of tourism—good or bad—seems to be Central Oregonians’ #1 hobby/gripe/social media go-to, we bring it up again this time to give a nod to the Central Oregon Emergency Information Network and its team of local, state and federal agency partners, some of whom have been working for YEARS to prepare for the eclipse. Whether concerned with staffing our public safety teams, sharing information with the public, or watching those traffic and weather reports, we’re sending a big shout out to Sgt. Nathan Garibay, Ashley Volz and the entire team at the Deschutes County Sheriff ’s emergency services department—along with their counterparts in Crook and Jefferson counties. These are the people who are likely watching the eclipse on TV, after the fact, so that all of us can see it safely in real time. (And in case you need info, check them out at coemergencyinfo.

Mike Leecy, Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs supervisory timber presale technician, uses a drip torch to burn a back line; a containment line created to burn/remove the short grasses from the path of the fire.

Fires Cool in Central Oregon by Magdalena Bokowa


ain, cooler temperatures and hard work prevented the fire burning at Warm Springs Reservation — dubbed the Nena Springs Fire — from spreading on Sunday. Firefighters were able to safely access significant areas of un-contained perimeters, due to colder and wetter conditions. According to the Oregon State Fire Marshal, firefighters made progress around the recent growth in the Deschutes River Canyon. Crews made progress around the communities of Simnasho, Mutton Mountain and Indian Head Canyon, protecting further structures from being lost. With the change in weather and strong westerly winds on Sunday, air

quality greatly improved in the region. Firefighters will attempt to carefully burn out eastern areas of the fire, which may create more short-term smoke. As progress continues toward containment, some of the crews, engines and heavy equipment are being released from this incident and being made available for other fires in the region. On Aug. 8, the human-caused Nena Springs Fire ignited on private property adjacent to the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. High winds caused the fire to grow very quickly. Over 114 firefighters with engines, dozers, large airtankers and helicopters immediately responded to contain the fire.

Bend State Rep. Knute Buehler Announces Run for Governor Gov. Kate Brown has yet to announce re-election plans by Shilo Grayson


n an announcement on Aug. 2, state Rep. Knute Buehler (R-Bend) announced his plans to run for governor of Oregon in the 2018 election. Buehler was first elected to the Oregon state House in 2015 and is currently serving his second consecutive term. Buehler’s voting history has been somewhat of a mixed bag. He voted to pass an anti-coal bill which many Republicans opposed and helped to pass a bill to expand access to birth control. He has voted against several bills aiming for more extensive gun control as well as against a bill aiming to increase the minimum wage, thus earning a reputation as a moderate Republican. In a statement on his website, Buehler wrote, “I’m running for Governor to help those uncertain Oregonians— Those who have been left behind, left out or lost hope in the future. Kate Brown has had her chance and she’s failed.”

Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, has not officially announced that she plans to run for governor again in 2018 however, she has been campaigning and accepting contributions, amounting to $1.4 million since her election last year. Buehler has so far managed to raise $204,000 in 10 days. If Brown does choose to seek re-election, it would serve as a rematch between the two — they campaigned against each other for Secretary of State in 2012—a race which Brown won. Brown became governor in 2015, after Gov. John Kitzhaber stepped down amid an influence-peddling scandal. Brown was officially elected in 2016 and has garnered media attention for being the first openly bisexual governor in U.S. history. If Buehler were to win, he would be the first Republican Oregon governor since Victor G. Atiyeh, who held the title from 1978 to 1986.  SW

MIRROR POND: By Magdalena Bokowa


private business acquired the land beneath Mirror Pond in 2015, but there are at least 10 different stakeholders, including YOU, the public, who own the waters. Now the pond’s owners want to dredge, and they’re asking taxpayers for $3.5 million to pay for it. They’ll kick in $200,000. THE SCENE IS SET It’s late 2013 and scores of concerned community members, environmental groups, city and parks officials, nonprofits and the like meet at Broken Top Bottle Shop for another round of discussions on “What to do with Mirror Pond?” The options include dredging, removing the dam or restoring that portion of the Deschutes River to its natural flow. There are talks about Pacific Corp — the owners of the 100+ year old dam on Mirror Pond, first put in place in 1909 — selling the dam to Bend Park and Recreation District for a small cost. The sale falls through. Friction mounts and the entire project stalls. In April 2015, Mirror Pond Solutions LLC, a newly formed business owned by longtime business owners, Bill Smith and Todd Taylor, acquirethe land from 96 year-old Della M. Tennant, a descendent of original Bend settlers, the McKay family. The sale price for over 25 acres of Mirror Pond land? $0. Noted as a “Type 6” sale by Deschutes County public records and sold off into 5 parcels, the costfree transaction is marked, “Grantee is related/friends or business associates.” That document also assesses the land’s tax value at $20,000 for all five parcels, totaling 25 acres. Three of the plots, have a "real market value" of $0 and two are listed at $10,000, according to Deschutes County.

The new owners include Bill Smith, owner of William Smith Properties, a property developer that restored 14,000 feet of river area in the Old Mill, making it the vibrant shopping district is it today. The other owner is Todd Taylor of Taylor Northwest, owner of two mining pits east of Bend and a large construction and excavating business. “Mirror Pond is an icon of the City of Bend, contributing identify, tranquility and aesthetic beauty,” representatives from Mirror Pond Solutions wrote in a “Mirror Pond Dredging Means and Methods Report,” obtained by the Source Weekly. “Along with being a hallmark of the community and an important feature of the environmental and recreational landscape of the City...the Pond also serves as a settling basin for silt flowing down the Deschutes River...and requires maintenance dredging every 20-30 years to maintain the pond in its historic form.” The last dredging took place in

1984, removing approximately 60,000 cubic feet of material, achieving roughly five feet of depth, according to City of Bend records. Taxpayers footed the $312,000 price tag. The current proposed project, currently under permitting review by the Oregon Department of State Lands and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is expected to cost a minimum of $6 million and remove 75,000 cubic yards of material. In its application, Mirror Ponds Solutions estimates project’s the lasting impact will be 25 years. “Eric King, (City manager) city staff and two city councilors, (Mayor

Casey Roats and Mayor Pro-tem Sally Russell) met with the Mirror Pond group in late June,” says City of Bend Communications Director Anne Aurand. “They (Mirror Pond Solutions) indicated that they were looking for contributions from the City, the Park and Recreation District and Pacific Power.” According to Aurand, Mirror Pond Solutions is asking for $1.1 million from the City to assist in the project, though no commitments were made during the meeting. As for BPRD, “Yes, they have asked to schedule a meeting,” says BPRD Executive Director Don Horton, “but

By maintaining Mirror Pond as a pond, it will undisputedly cost money to maintain— and none of these options fix the sediment issue caused by the dam... millions of dollars, ostensibly spent every 20 to 25 years. The “no action” approach also means money spent—so it really comes down to values. Does Bend value a healthy river or a heartwarming pond?

we have not scheduled one at this time.” Asked if BPRD was supportive of the dredging, Horton said yes, and referred to a 2016 approved “Memorandum of Understanding” with Mirror Pond Solutions. In the obtained Means and Methods Report, this is described as “a partnership for the acquisition and care of Mirror Pond, and authorized the Executive Director to issue a request for proposals for preliminary engineering services.” Horton says the partnership has solely been to further BPRD’s Mirror Pond Project — early estimates are at $5 million — aimed at reestablishing riparian or wetland habitat around the pond, re-aligning its banks, constructing a boardwalk and furthering new sections of the Deschutes River Trail. The Means and Methods Report indicates that the $6.6 million funds “will be issued to BPRD Foundation and all funds will be distributed from the foundation.” Horton is quick to point out there are no agreements to address sediment or removal of the dam, but acknowledges the group’s request for a meeting. Asked if he thinks the BPRD board would support funding, Horton replied, “We would have to weigh up all the options, but historically, the District has not funded private ownership projects.” Aware of the political hot potato, Horton said: “This (issue) has been batted around for a long time...our leadership lands in restoring the areas around the river.” In nothing happens, the pond will eventually become a narrower river. Horton says this wouldn’t affect the proposed Mirror Pond plans and that the boardwalk would still function quite well. It may, however, affect the $10 million Whitewater Park. According to Brian Hudspeth,

the District’s development manager and project manager on the Mirror Pond Project: “It may affect the last drop of the whitewater park,” since the backflows attributed to the sediment of the pond would cease. “It may make what was a beginners’ drop, a more advanced and technical area,” added Horton.

press time.) No state or federal agencies were willing to speculate on the life expectancy of the Mirror Pond Dam, now a 108-year-old structure, but a 2012 report by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology noted dams have a projected lifespan of 50 to 100 years and that “after 50 years, the maintenance

“I don’t care what they do, dredge, don’t dredge, but the public shouldn’t pay for it. Let Mr. Smith and Mr. Taylor and their friends take care of it.” — CRAIG LACY SHALLOW WATERS YIELD LOUD VOICES WHO PAYS? “I’ve always been singing the same note: no public money for the pond,” says Bend City Councilor Barb Campbell. “There is no obligation for the city and its taxpayers to remove silt put there by Pacific Corp. If a private, for-profit, corporation wants to dredge, let them pay for it.” Campbell and fellow Councilor Nathan Boddie are staunch opponents of putting money into what they deem is a temporary solution. Both favor a “no action approach,” allowing for the river to restore itself. Boddie, in a letter to the State of Oregon, wrote, “Allowing the process to continue without dredging would lead to improved fisheries and develop enhanced wetland habitat.” Campbell notes, “That dam has outlived its usefulness,” referring to the fact that at last check, the dam supplied power to just .002 percent of Bend’s population. (Editor’s note: We also contacted Councilors Bill Moseley and Mayor Casey Roats for comment, but neither responded to our requests by

costs and chances of failure start to rise dramatically.” The Association of State Dam Safety Officials estimates total repairs for U.S. dams to cost $36.2 billion. By 2020, 85 percent of U.S. dams will be more than 50 years old and need repairing, with the American Society of Civil Engineers deeming 3,300 of these to be unsafe. Still, officials note that money would be put into the dam if it were required to have a fish passage. With the opening of the fish ladder at North Unit Dam, just downstream from Mirror Pond, the dam is currently the only one in the chain of the Upper Deschutes to not have fish passage, effectively dividing fish populations on the upper and lower portions of the river. “There is a mandate on a dam to require fish passage” says Brett Hodgson, an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife fish biologist. “And this has to do with any major modification or structural change, of 30 percent of more to a dam.” Hodgson says because of its age, the Mirror Pond dam is exempt from normal fish

passage statutes, but that if Pacific Corp were to make a major change, it would trigger the requirement of a fish ladder. “They have made intermittent repairs throughout the years that have not hit 30 percent,” says Hodgson. Asked if the 30 percent only applies to one repair or could be spread out over multiple reapirs, Hodgson replied that it’s a “grey area.” “It’s a log crib dam,” continues Hodgson, “anything out of wood will eventually deteriorate or rot, and judging they’ve had to made repairs on a regular basis, it indicates it’s starting to reach the end of its lifespan, whether that’s five years or 20 years down the road.” According to its Means and Methods Report, Mirror Pond Solutions has requested $2.9 million from Pacific Power for dredging. Pacific Corp’s Regional Business Manager, Matthew Chancellor, said in an email to the Source Weekly: “Our focus remains on serving our customers and the community with safe, reliable and affordable energy…we have made no commitments towards dredging to date.” “If they want to crack open their own checkbooks, OK,” says Campbell, “But are you, the public, willing to spend millions on Mirror Pond?” WHAT HAPPENS IF NOTHING HAPPENS? And why no talks on removal of the dam? “They (Pacific Corp) don’t want to sell it because they don’t have any liabilities until they do,” posits Craig Lacy, former chairman of the Coalition for the Deschutes, avid fly fisher and, coincidentally, a landowner who lives on Mirror Pond. Calling in from a boat in Alaska, the energetic outdoorsman lambasted both

means that “as the channel narrows and velocity increases, this would reduce the total water surface area exposed to solar heating and reduce the residence time of the water impounded in the Mirror Pond reservoir. Reducing the residence time and solar heating would likely benefit water temperature in the Deschutes River. Reductions in temperature would also likely benefit dissolved oxygen because low dissolved oxygen conditions are often tied to increased water temperature.” Houston also notes the wildlife favorability for riparian and wetland areas, noting “They would contribute to fish and wildlife habitat, including areas for breeding, foraging and other functions depending on the species. Wetlands would also increase the natural uptake of nutrients that may come from run‐off in surrounding areas.” “The dredging would eliminate the channel nature has now created,” says Kolleen Miller, education director for the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council. “It would make the pond less favorable to fish. It would reduce water habitat and increase water temperatures because there would be additional residence time behind the dam.” The environmental group says eventually Mirror Pond would become similar to riparian conditions found around Colorado Avenue, an old logging area. Houston also notes, “This future condition would also be largely maintenance‐free as repeated dredging would not be required.” Houston also mentions the possibility of the Oregon Spotted Frog, listed as an endangered species, being in the area, since it’s present upstream


near Colorado Avenue. He writes, “There is a reasonable possibility that spotted frogs are present in Mirror Pond.” Still, Bridget Moran of the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife, notes that in a two-year conducted story, “No Spotted Frogs were found.” In his statement, Houston also wrote that Mirror Pond Solutions’ statement that “sediment from the project site could be beneficial downstream,” is inconsistent. Houston proposed that the “potential for sediment mobilization should be quantified more specifically.” Coincidently, if the Mirror Pond Dam fails and is removed, sediment could then form at the North Unit Dam, operated by the irrigation districts. COMPETING VALUES, COMPETING LANDSCAPES When it comes to the complicated issue of Mirror Pond, people tend to fall on one of two sides. Some favor the old school nostalgia of an idyllic pond, featured on beer bottles and touted as an “icon.” Meanwhile, others favor restoring the river to a “natural” state that would mean the banks would widen and the river would be narrow, as was the case before 1909— showcased in old photos featuring rich wetlands and small islands. These two elements are pitted

against something unfortunately greater: money. By maintaining Mirror Pond as a pond, it will undisputedly cost money to maintain—and none of these options fix the sediment issue caused by the dam... millions of dollars, ostensibly spent every 20 to 25 years. The “no action” approach also means money spent—so it really comes down to values. Does Bend value a healthy river or a heartwarming pond? In a 2015 City of Bend benchmark survey, with 402 respondents, 60 percent said ensuring the aesthetic and iconic pond views were of high or extreme value, with 20 percent saying they were neutral and 18 percent saying the issue was not at all concerning. It remains to be seen what the results of a survey of that type would elicit in 2017. So what about the current requests for taxpayer money to dredge? “Any City involvement in this project would need to be made by the full Council at a public meeting, with community input,” says Anne Aurand of the City of Bend. “No meetings are currently scheduled.” Bend Parks’ five-member board of directors, meanwhile, would decide on their requested $2.5 million contribution.  SW Should the public pay for something owned by a private interest?

Let Mr. Smith and Mr. Taylor and their friends take care of it.” If permitting stalls and public funding doesn’t happen, Mirror Pond, which already features a narrow channel and is surrounded by deep mud flats created from the sediment, will increasingly narrow, the banks will become larger, and wetlands will emerge from the sediment deposition, river experts say. The Oregon Department of State Lands received six substantive comments on the applied permit from Mirror Pond Solutions, including from Councilor Nathan Boddie, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council. The last was a six-page letter from UDWC Executive Director Ryan Houston, who questions the applicants’ use of science to back up Mirror Pond Solutions LLC claim regarding “Possible negative effects to fish, wildlife and water quality,”—something Houston vehemently denies. He writes, “While it is accurate that Mirror Pond generally provides poor habitat and the presence of the pond (“reservoir”) likely contributes to poor water quality, the proposed dredging would not likely improve these conditions. More likely, the dredging would reduce habitat and water quality because of the increased capacity of the reservoir and, as a result, the increased residence time and warming of the Deschutes River.” Houston says a no-action approach

As the countdown begins., here’s a timeline to better prepare for the Great American Eclipse


Help local businesses weather the coming storm by stocking up on a 10-day supply of groceries by this date, including non-perishables that won’t spoil easily and extra bottled water. Stock up on ice and of course, the almighty beer. Good food items to buy: dry pasta, rice, beans, eggs, powdered milk, canned fish, ice, batteries, bread, coffee and tea, cereal, peanut butter, dried fruit, crackers, baby formula, baby diapers, toilet paper and laundry detergent. Ensure you have a manual can opener and basic utensils to prepare and serve meals.

WATER Stock your vehicle with a

few gallons of water. One adult should drink one gallon per day. Fill your RV with water.

Thursday Aug. 17 CASH

Don’t rely on ATMs for the next week, as they may either run out of cash or be affected by slow internet connections or possible power outages. Have extra cash on hand for all of your needs.

COPIES Of important documents

such as important health records, insurance cards and immunization records.

Friday Aug. 18 BACKUP PLANS


Because traffic may be severely backed up on Monday, Aug. 21, make extra plans for daycare pickup, caregiver plans and checking in on those disabled or sick. Make a plan if you cannot reach them. Think about your pet and leave early to let them out. Reschedule non-emergency doctors and dentist visits for after Aug. 26.




Fill your cars, RVs, motorhomes, ATVs, ranch and farm equipment and portable gas tanks with gas or diesel. Consider active transportation methods such as walking and biking to your destinations to conserve gas. Refill and purchase extra portable propane tanks.

Have a prescription finishing by Aug. 26? Refill it now to ensure you have enough medication for five days before and after Aug. 21.Your pharmacist may have to call your insurance company to authorize an early prescription renewal. This includes any doggy xanax or dewormer for that pet of yours.

STOCK UP -- Pain relievers (ibuprofen, antihistamines, etc) -- Contact solution -- antacids -- vitamins


In this extreme fire season and with intense pressure on local fire and police departments, consider purchasing a fire extinguisher, first aid kit and extra batteries. A bucket with a plastic bag for toilet emergencies may just be a good idea.

Saturday Aug. 19

Extra items that may make your time more comfortable:


Don’t wait until the last minute to get NASA certified, ISO 12312-2 solar eclipse glasses. Ensure they are not torn, scratched or wrinkled. A welding mask, lens #14 or darker also works. Do not – under any circumstances – use sunglasses or look directly at the sun. You can use your eclipse glasses to gaze at sunspots after the eclipse.

Sunday, Aug. 20 CONSERVE

Start to conserve water and avoid watering the lawn. Unplug appliances you aren’t using and turn down the A/C to 78 degrees. Backup computer data, photos on your phone and start charging all of your devices. Make a backup communication method in case heavy usage starts impacting cell coverage and Internet. Apps like FireChat use Bluetooth to communicate with users.


Who knows what to expect... but brace for many people, heavy traffic and long lines. Stay at home, if possible to avoid congestion and hot weather. Knitting, Sudoku, Monopoly, yoga, dice, card games, meditation, looking into your partner’s eyes instead of a cell screen and twiddling your thumbs are almost all great ways to pass the time.

Solar batteries and lamps.

Monday Aug. 21 E-DAY

Grab a lawn chair, your ISO-certified solar glasses, sunscreen, a hat, friends and family and settle in wherever you’ve planned to watch the eclipse. If you’re driving, avoid Hwy. 97 and budget three times the time period to get there.


Eclipse begins in Central Oregon. The moon will begin to obscure the sun.


Totality begins and lasts for approximately 2.02 minutes, depending on your location. If you are in totality, when the moon completely obscures the sun, it is then safe to take off your eclipse glasses (look away from the sun, take them off and then gaze up). Return your glasses once the moon moves again. In partiality, you must wear your eclipse glasses.

10:21am Totality ends. 11:41 Eclipse ends

Battery bank. Hand cranked, battery or solar powered radio for updates on emergencies in case of power outage. Apps that use Bluetooth for communication such as Firechat. No data, wifi or cell coverage required. Get the usernames of your friends now. Paperwork about any serious or ongoing medical conditions. Your completed family emergency plan, with contact information. Maps of the area. Extra set of car keys and house keys.

Passion: World travel, vegetarian cooking, outdoor recreation # Total solar eclipses: 11 First total solar eclipse: August 1999 in Cornwall, England, at a 16th century castle we rented two years in advance. Most dangerous eclipse trip: 2001 in Zambia: I was chased by a rhino, had a close encounter with a lion, startled six elephants while on foot, and was surrounded by a pack of hyenas for an entire night of camping. Most memorable eclipse trip: 2010 in the Cook Islands: We navigated to a remote part of the South Pacific Ocean in a cargo boat via GPS, which led to two seasons of work as a cook on the same boat, touring the Cook Islands. It also led to a freelance writing gig for local Cook Island newspapers during the 2012 London Olympics. Why I chase eclipses: I'm a traveler anyway, so why wouldn't I? Bonus: Favorite eclipse description: "Big Jesus in the sky goes belly up." (from a Solomon Islander)

First total solar eclipse: July 11, 1991, in Hawaii Most dangerous eclipse: August 11, 1999, in Iran Most memorable eclipse: November 3, 1994, in the Chilean Andes up at 3,600 meters. Perfect atmospheric conditions and an especially spectacular totality! Why I chase eclipses: Nothing else on Earth is more moving, more satisfying and more nourishing for your soul than witnessing the sun's radiant corona in the moment of totality.

Bonus: This eclipse is especially important to me, because it's my final continent to see an eclipse from.

The Dark Side Of The Moon…...and how to find it! BY RENEE ALEXANDER


Age: 50 Nationality: British Occupation: Conservationist

Why I chase eclipses: I love the totality that goes with the totality: the places you go, the people you meet, the food you eat, the adventures you have.

Choosing A Place To Watch An Eclipse he T shirts, fridge magnets and solar glasses are all ready to go, but are you? It's 10:15 am on the coast of Oregon, and the moon's shadow races across the Pacific. "The Great American Solar Eclipse" has begun its journey across the Continental U.S.A., leaving in its path a bit of history and a lot of amazed people. Where will you be? How do you do this? I have heard many locals say, "Bend has a 99.7 percent partial eclipse, that's good enough for me!" As part of a large, international eclipse-chasing group for the last few decades, this breaks my heart, because you only need to drive 45 miles north to fully experience this once-in-a lifetime opportunity. If our group had a mission statement, it would be, "On the line! Further! More adventure!" So our secret viewing location is special and well earned. We searched 1,200 miles of the high desert to find it, documenting in detail the directions and services along the way. And this was a relatively easy task, comparatively. In March 2006 in Egypt, we had to outrun and outsmart the former dictator, President Mubarak, Prince Charles, Camilla and other dignitaries to get to our viewing location in the Sahara near the Libyan border. Fortunately, as far as I know, no dictators are coming to Oregon! If you want to see the main event, you must know - first and foremost - exactly where you are, and that

Simon Macara

should be within the shadow of the moon cast by the sun, called the umbra. If you are anywhere outside this zone, you will see only a partial eclipse. This band of shadow will be approximately 65 miles wide, and the further you go from the center of that umbra, the shorter the eclipse lasts. The difference between experiencing a partial versus a total eclipse is absolute: totality holds the gems. At the very edge of the umbra, the total eclipse will last for only a fraction of a second, yet not so far away - on the centerline - it will last for two minutes or more. So, getting closer to the centerline will drastically increase the duration. Going west to east across the country, the total eclipse also increases in duration, until it peaks in Southern Illinois with two minutes and 40.2 seconds of totality. In Oregon, we can elongate the total eclipse experience by a full second by traveling another 60 miles or so to the east. The ideal location is somewhere with no clouds; which is why aficionados are called Eclipse Chasers; if it's cloudy, you chase. So, if possible, pick a location with unimpeded views, especially if the eclipse is very early or late in the day, because when the eclipse happens low on the horizon, topography comes into play. From a high spot, you'll also have the opportunity to see the shadow as it races toward you at the breakneck speed of about 1,500 mph, which is faster than you can blink.

It takes time and research to come up with a good viewing location, and that effort can reap rewards. The NASA eclipse website offers an interactive map with the eclipse path superimposed on it. This gives you the exact parameters of the shadow, it highlights both the centerline and edges of the umbra, and it tells you exactly when the eclipse will start and end in a particular location. You can also download the Solar Eclipse Timer app for your phone to find out how long the eclipse will last where you are currently standing. The Great American Eclipse will include challenges in Central and Eastern Oregon, with the media predicting huge traffic jams and general shortages of supplies. If you are heading to Madras or the John Day area, these will probably be the most heavily congested, so plan to arrive early and leave late, and be prepared to spend a lot of time in traffic. And most importantly, do not park your vehicle on the tinder dry grass and vegetation on the roadside, which can easily spark a fire. Should you decide to journey to the centerline and find yourself hooked, you'll be pleased to know there is another another total solar eclipse crossing Mexico and the southern and midwestern United States on April 8, 2024. Or, if you're willing to make a longer trip, you can see the July 2, 2019 total eclipse in the South Pacific, Chile or Argentina. It's 4:06pm, on Aug. 21. Faces gaze upward, and a shadow races across the South Carolina coast. The Great American Eclipse has cut its swathe across the nation for the first time since 1918. In its wake are millions of smiles, high fives, and congratulations for being in the right place when the sky went dark in the daytime. Enjoy, tread lightly, and we'll see you on the dark side of the moon!  SW

Question: What are your plans for the eclipse?

Are you worried about the crowds?

Jacinda Swan, Bend "The kids will be staying home with dad and I’m working at Solar Festival. Solar Festival is five days in Madras, there are 55,000 campsites and 30,000 people camping. Of course I’m worried about the crowds, everyone is talking about it."

Interns Shilo Grayson & Sophia Sahm contributed to this report.

Max Wolckenhauer, Bend "I’m going to lay low, get in the car, sit down and find a nice spot probably near our house. I’m going to observe and enjoy it. I’m not worried about the crowds, it is what it is. Folks will come and enjoy it. It may be a little hectic or crazy but it’s only for a short while I’ll just go with the flow."

Cade Ginsburg, Bend "I’m going to stay here. I might be at my house, but I might be working that morning. Chances are I’ll just be at home and I’ll watch it from my house. I’m very worried about the crowds, I’m not excited. Cafe Yumm is probably going to shut down that week because we aren’t going to have enough people because they’ll be stuck in traffic." Troy Davis, Richland, WA I’m taking the day off to watch the eclipse, but I won’t be in Bend. We won’t get the full eclipse, but it will be around 90 percent. People aren’t as excited up there.

Natalie Page "We are getting out of town. We’re going to go visit some friends that live over in the John Day area. I’m a little worried, I just love Bend so I’m hoping it doesn’t get trashed. I’m a little worried about the partiers, but not too much; everyone is partying all summer long here anyway." Bill Casey, Hawaii "I’m not planning on being here for the eclipse, I’ll be back in Hawaii. We’ve had one before, but we won’t get this one. I’m not going to watch it on TV— been there, done that. It must have been back in 1979. It was interesting, we went out on our boat and watched it."

Anne Power "I’m trying to go to Lake Shasta. I saw the eclipse when I was little. I grew up in Texas and saw an eclipse. I’m worried about the crowds. We aren’t sure if we’re going but we are trying to leave on Friday and be gone because we have young girls and we heard there will be a lot of people, a lot of drinking and a lot of drugs and my children are not shy. I don’t want to leave them here to get messed up with the wrong crowd. I don’t really know, I don’t know what’s coming. I’m not anxious, but like I said, I don’t know if it’s going to be like YTK and not as big as they say or if it’s going to be a mess."



E L S P I ECL URVIVAE   S GUID     If you live in Bend, does it make sense to try to go to Madras for totality or should I just stay put?

Source Says: It’s the difference between night and day. Pun intended.



Expert Says: “A solar eclipse is nature’s grandest spectacles. If I were you, I’d say, it’s worth it. Quite frankly, if you have any chance to see the totality at all, it is quite remarkable. I have been looking forward to this since 1979. It is a rarity to have totality in our very own backyard. After this year, there won’t be another one here for 154 years. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime. It really is. It’s one of those events you must see.” – Jim Todd, Director of Space Science Education, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI)


What’s the takeaway? 


Is it really going to take 12 hours to get from Bend to Madras during the eclipse?

Source Says: False. Unless the highway is at an absolute standstill due to a crash or emergency. Experts Say: “I will tell you that if it takes between 8-12 hours, then the highway would be essentially closed. Even if you were only traveling 5 miles per hour, it wouldn’t take that long. So anything above a few hours to get there is essentially hypothetical. We’re really hoping that’s not the case and we’ll try as hard as possible to keep the highway moving... and mitigate accidents because those are what would really throw a wrench in the movement of the road.” — Sgt. Nathan Garibay Emergency Service Manager, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office “ODOT has stopped all construction across the state over the weekend to keep the traffic moving.” — Katy Brooks President, Bend Chamber


Source Says: Prep for the worst, hope for the best. Experts Say: “We’d be doing a disservice if we didn’t evaluate this as a training opportunity for something as the “Big One” (the expected 9.0 Pacific Coast earthquake). We’ve been working to assess community resilience. We’re working with all of our service partners to find improvement and look at what went well and what we can do to improve. I think this is going to be an enjoyable safe event. Don’t get too stressed out and enjoy the eclipse. I think this is an opportunity to be proud of where you live and proud of your community.” – Sgt. Nathan Garibay, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office “Know that we are trying to be safe and informed and realistic. Enjoy the eclipse and don’t burn your eyeballs.” – Kristine McConnell, COVA “It’s going to be a day that you remember forever, even if you’re like Sgt. Garibay, stuck in a windowless room, working. Stories will be made from this and there will be a social media explosion...and if you’re fighting the time and you fall short of your destination during the eclipse but you’re within the totality, get out of the car and look at it."

– Jim Todd, OMSI “...but make sure you’re not blocking any traffic, in any sage brush and you’re safe in doing so.” – Sgt. Nathan Garibay

Redmond Prineville

Bend roughly 1:15 0:00


Experts Say: “511 is ODOT’s non-emergency line for updates in traffic – it’s in line with trip check, it’s more informational. “211 is for the community. It’s a resource hotline and handles general informational needs for visitors or locals. Something along the lines of, “I need to know where to dump my wastewater out of my RV. Or any new information on a shelter. "If you have an emergency, just call 911." – Kristine McConnell and Sgt. Nathan Garibay


As an employer trying to decide whether to close or stay open what are your recommendations?

Source Says: Do like us – we ain’t workin’... and we’ll still be back with your friendly weekly paper, right on time. Experts Say: “I think it depends on your business. If you don’t have to stay open then it’s a great opportunity to give your employees the day off so that they can experience this oncein-a-lifetime event. It also minimizes traffic on the roadways and anytime we can limit traffic is good. But it’s a personal decision that depends on the services you’re offering and how well you can offer them under the conditions." – Sgt. Nathan Garibay “Will you be able to deliver your regular services considering that traffic may be heavy and cell coverage may be limited?” – Kristine McConnell, COVA


Where are you getting these numbers? 200,000 people will visit the region?

Source Says: Doubling our population, you say? Ain’t no thang, right? Expert Says: “...Estimation of visitors, those numbers are based off known permitted events, hotel occupancy, campgrounds and some projections based on people staying with friends and family. Then there’s a survey of people who answered that they do not live here and are coming to visit." – Sgt. Nathan Garibay

Q&A compiled from the Aug. 8, Bend Chamber event, “What’s Brewin


Has there been any coordination with gas stations to try to mitigate gas shortages?

Source Says: Ain’t it a nice time to ride yo’ bike? Experts Say: “We’ve been in touch with other fuel companies across the state to make sure we’re all coordinated. So we’re going to bring tankers over and park them here. We are doing everything in our power to make sure that we have enough storage to keep emergency vehicles and civilian vehicles supplied. Every oil company in town is working together. We’re all in it together.” – Kathy Temple Bend Oil Company, Sales and Marketing Division Manager “The issue with that, however, is that if those tankers get stuck in traffic and aren’t able to make enough trips in good enough time to keep us supplied. There’s a limitation on the amount of time that drivers can spend driving per day. [Source says: Thank you, labor movement! No really, thank you, labor movement.] So there is a chance that stations in Bend or Redmond could get low or run out. That is the number one reason we’re encouraging residents to fill up ahead of time so you’re not competing with visitors." – Sgt. Nathan Garibay


If we’re in partial totality (such as in Bend) what will we see? 

Source Says: Go to totality. Seriously. It’s “once-in-a-lifetime.”

Questions Experts tell you what you need to know about the Great American Eclipse


Source Says: It’s like a GMO version of totality, but without the freaky potential consequences! Experts Say: “So what you’re going to see is called the hybrid and it’ll be spectacular. "You’ll see a combination of totality and partially. That’ll be great, but you may only have to go a couple hundred yards north to see 30 seconds more of totality (so do that.) But where you are in the hybrid zone you’ll definitely have a story to tell. — Jim Todd, OMSI

How will smoky skies or clouds affect viewing the eclipse? 

Source Says: Yeaaaaaah….. That’s gonna be a problem, that one. Do a rain dance to extinguish those fires. Then do a clear-sky dance. Experts Say: “It will have a noticeable impact... and it will limit the amount of stars you could see. But…(haze) will actually turn the sky a spectacular color! We’re going to hope for the best and track the weather closer to the date.” — Jim Todd, OMSI “I tested this out the other day with eclipse glasses and hazy conditions. I looked outside at about 10:20 am (time of eclipse) and the sun was at about the 1:pm mark. I could see it through the glasses even with the smoke." — Kristine McConnell Manager, Industry & International Relations, Central Oregon Visitors Association (COVA)

Experts Say: “Well, there’s a number of hazards. It doesn’t take a lot for a car converter to ignite dry grass, so parking on dry grass – especially if you leave your vehicle running – could very easily start a fire. And that, of course, would ruin your day and also add stress to crews that are probably already overextended.” – Sgt. Nathan Garibay


Okay, so when do I take off my eclipse glasses? And can I take them off at all if I’m only viewing the partial eclipse?

Source Says: In Bend or in 99.9% or below? Don’t take them off. EVER. In Madras or in totality? You have a brief window of time when the moon blocks the sun. Read below.

Will I really go blind if I stare up at the eclipse without proper protection?

Source Says: Yep, it’s called solar retinopathy. And St. Charles Medical Center is preparing for it. Expert Says: “We’ve been trying to spread the word about the seriousness of the damage that the eclipse can have on your eyes. You won’t feel the effect for the next five to seven days and the effects are absolutely permanent. So keeping your glasses on before and after totality is vital.” – Lisa Goodman, Public Information Officer, St. Charles Medical Center “I have seen instances where the patient has eventually shown up with crescents burned into the back of the eye, and you can almost tell exactly when they looked.” – Ralph Chou Professor Emeritus, University of Waterloo, in an interview with

Expert Says: “Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse (totality), when the moon entirely blocks the sun’s bright face – which will only occur within the narrow path of totality. Stand still and cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses before looking up at the bright sun. After looking at the sun, turn away and remove your filter — do not remove it while looking at the sun. Afterwards, as soon as the bright sun begins to reappear, replace your solar viewer to look at the remaining partial phases. “Outside the path of totality, you MUST ALWAYS use a safe solar filter to view the sun. “Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight. If you normally wear eyeglasses, keep them on. Put your eclipse glasses on over them. “Do not look at the un-eclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, a camera — the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye(s), causing serious injury. “Make sure eclipse glasses are compliant with the ISO 12312-2 safety standard, and aren’t scratched, punctured, or torn, you may reuse them indefinitely. Some glasses/viewers are printed with warnings stating that you shouldn’t look through them for more than three minutes at a time and that you should discard them if they are more than three years old. Such warnings are outdated and do not apply to eclipse viewers compliant with the ISO 12312-2 standard adopted in 2015. – National Aeronautics and Space Administration


Help! My grandpa is senile and sat on my glasses! The eclipse is starting in 7 minutes! What can I do?

Source Says: Punch grandpa in the face and steal his. He’s senile, he won’t even know. No, just kidding. Expert Says: “An alternative method for safe viewing of the partially eclipsed sun is pinhole projection. (See page 18 for how to make one) For example, cross the outstretched, slightly open fingers of one hand over the outstretched, slightly open fingers of the other, creating a waffle pattern. With your back to the sun, look at your hands’ shadow on the ground. The little spaces between your fingers will project a grid of small images on the ground, showing the sun as a crescent during the partial phases of the eclipse. Or just look at the shadow of a leafy tree during the partial eclipse; you’ll see the ground dappled with crescent suns projected by the tiny spaces between the leaves.” — NASA Intern Shilo Grayson contributed to this report.

17 VOLUME 21  ISSUE 33  /  August 17, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Expert Says: “In a 99 percent area, you’ll experience “deep” partiality and may see the very edge of the sun. The moon will still track off-center, but at the time of maximum coverage, the sun will end up being covered by it. You’ll see a very thin sliver of the sun - the closer you are to the path, the thinner the sliver you’ll see. You’ll also get to see the sky darken a bit, and if you’re really close to the path, the overall eeriness of the quality of the light around you will deepen. You’ll get that weird feeling that the light isn’t right, and that something very strange is going on around you. But, that’s it. “If you look to the far right, you can block the edge of the sun out with your hand and see part of venus and you might be able to see stars." – Jim Todd, OMSI





Blew it with the eclipse glasses? Maybe not.

A simple how-to for viewing the eclipse safely—by even using a copy of this newspaper. Whatever your reasons for missing out on buying that simple pair of NASAapproved ISO 12312-2 eclipse viewing glasses, here you are, without a pair just before the eclipse. Maybe you’re holding a copy of the physical paper in your actual hands, whilst enjoying a festival in the middle of nowhere; or maybe you’re holed up in your home and you’re not going anywhere. However it happened, here you are.

Start with: -- Two pieces of white, firm paper (if you’re really stuck, use this newspaper!) -- A pair of scissors -- A piece of aluminum foil -- Tape -- A safety pin or paper clip

You might not have the glasses, but don’t worry, you can still watch the eclipse!

Cut a square hole in one of the pieces of paper.

Cut a piece of aluminum foil into a square that is larger than the hole in the paper, and then tape the foil over the paper’s hole.

Poke a hole into the foil at its center.

Place the other piece of paper on the ground. Then place the piece of paper containing the foil above it, with the foil facing toward you. Stand with the sun behind you, and look for an image of the sun on the piece of paper that’s on the ground. Stand a little farther away and you’ll notice the image on the lower paper gets even bigger.

NASA’s pro tip: Make the projection stand out even more by putting the bottom piece of paper in a shadowed area, while keeping the upper/foil piece of paper in the sun. Extra pro tip: Make more than one hole in your foil to have the sun’s image appear multiple times. Whatever you do, don’t look at the sun during the eclipse—or anytime—without proper protection! Sunglasses don’t count, people.

The rules on the wacky tabacky in Oregon, for you eclipse visitin’ noobs


eah, yeah, we get it—you came for the eclipse… but it doesn’t hurt that Oregon happens to have great beer and legal weed, too. While the cannabis community will be happy to indoctrinate you and make you an evangelist for their special brand of flower/extract/dabs/etc., check this guide first, to help you learn a little about how it’s done around here.

DON’T SMOKE ‘EM IF YOU GOT ‘EM: You have your weed! But where will you use it? The short answer is “not in public.” That means not on sidewalks, parking lots, parks, beaches, buses, alleyways or anyplace outside the home. This includes your light sabersized vape pen. “But it’s not smoke, it’s vapor,” you say in that smug tone that makes me want to slap you. That doesn’t matter, Obi Wan Kestoney, you are still ingesting a cannabis product in a public place. You can smoke it your home, which you don’t have to go to, but you can’   BEER AND BUDS: You can’t smoke anywhere with a liquor license. That puts the owner of that establishment at risk of losing their license. Those aren’t cheap. Be cool.  GIFTING: A grower can give you up to one ounce of cannabis at no charge, as long as you are 21 and over. Same with edibles.  SEEN, NOT STONED- The Director of Oregon Health Authority has said his biggest concern is children gaining access to cannabis via recreational use. (He corrected himself to the term “Adult Use.” Let’s use that term!) Store your cannabis in a safe place, and that goes double for edibles. Have dog(s)? That goes for you as well. Dogs do OK on CBD products that are designed for them, not so well on your THC brownies. Those are the basics you need to know in Oregon. But since the rules often change, get the very most up- to-date information at  SW

(reprinted from the Source’s cannabis guide, The Leaflet)

THE BASICS: You’re allowed to have up to an ounce of cannabis when in public and 8 ounces at home. Live at least 1,000 feet from a school and you can grow up to four plants, so long as they are out of public view. You can also have a pound of edibles (like pot cookies), 72 ounces of marijuana in liquid form (which is the equivalent of a 6 pack), and 1 ounce of cannabis extracts, aka concentrates, (shatter, wax, etc.). Edible marijuana products are available at stores licensed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.   STONED/HIGH - I’m simplifying this to the horror of far better canna-minds such as Jeremy Plumb and Mowgli Holmes, but to get stoned (help with sleep issues, pain management, relaxation) go with an indica dominant strain. To get high (organize your sock drawer, giggle, tap into your creativity) use a sativa dominant strain. Research strains with apps/sites like Weedmaps and Leafly. You can learn about the strains available near you, and how others found them to work for particular conditions and intentions.   DISPENSARIES: OLCC-licensed locations, where you’ll find flowers, edibles and extracts for your cannabis-consuming pleasure. You will be purchasing lab-tested products, labeled with THC/CBD content.   BUDTENDER BUMMER: Don’t be the person who makes the budtender at the dispensary hate you. That’s easily achieved by not being a dick (i.e. “My brother grows stuff that smells better than this garbage schwag.”) or asking them to weigh out seven individual 1-gram strains. You tip your bartender, right? TIP THEM.

ay l Trying to drive around town? Signal out of those roundabouts. My kids live here! Stop for those pedestrians, in a crosswalk or out of one! It’s the law in Oregon. (If you’re crossing and someone stops for you, flash ‘em a smile. Or a peace sign. I like the peace sign.) It’s hot here, baby! If you stop somewhere along the side of the road to watch the eclipse, don’t stop in the underbrush! It’s fire season, and fires have been started from car exhaust on dry desert materials. SW

Hitting a Trail? Check for closures this week—many trails that are normally open in the Deschutes National Forest and beyond are closed or have more limited routes for eclipse week. Research the agency in charge of the land and check its website for details on trail closures. Floating the Deschutes? Wear strap-on shoes and don’t bring anything you don’t want wet, brah. And take your trash with you!

SOUND Getting Better

Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe brings the funk to the Century Center for a soulful pre-eclipse party

Karl Denson plans to get organized about his next album—right after playing a string of eclipse-related shows in Oregon this weekend. The saxophonist and funk master has developed quite the following with his band, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, and even finds time to play with The Rolling Stones. On Friday night, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe fills the Century Center Courtyard for a soulful “preclipse” party before heading out to Big Summit Prairie to perform at the huge global eclipse gathering in the Ochoco National Forest.


ou know, I wanted to see the eclipse, but I’m not going to be able to,” says Denson. “So most of all I want to see this group of people that are out in the high desert to see this. And I think that will be the most fun part is just seeing the gathering of humanity.” While he won’t be able to stick around to see the eclipse along the path of totality, Denson has seen an eclipse or two in the past. “I saw one when I was a little kid in 29 Palms near Palm Springs,” Denson recalls. “I was a little kid and we were out on the

front lawn and I watched it. I felt like I saw some kind of weird flying object after it, but I was only like five so I’m sure I could have been mistaken.” Denson, whose music with Tiny Universe fluctuates between jazz, funk and soul, finds himself wanting to get home to continue writing his next album. While work has been in progress on the album since the beginning of this year, Denson and his manager agreed that what they had was a bit scattered. Over the last month, he’s been getting organized and blocking out time for writing. “Solitude is my trick. I’m always so busy, so when I actually have time to sit around the house and garden and do normal stuff is when I get the most done,” Denson reveals. “I have my guitar with me, which I’ve been playing for the last couple years so I sit and plunk on the guitar and then figure out the simple part of the song structure and go from there.” For Denson, writing lyrics is kind of his Achilles heel. He needs peace and quiet to get in the zone for writing lyrics. His writing process comes on-and-off. He’ll go outside, pick some weeds and then go write for a bit, then he’ll go make some coffee. The writing process sounds pretty peaceful for a man who's touted as being part of one of the best live bands on the planet. But that’s no surprise, considering the creative process varies for everyone. For his upcoming shows at the Century Center and the Eclipse gathering, Denson plans to play some “new-ish” material that will be on the new record, but hasn’t been released yet, which will give fans a sneak peek into the future of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe. Fortunately for us, Denson loves playing live and continuing to refine his skills. “It’s how you get better as a performer,” Denson says. “As a sax player, performing live is one of those things that we do to get better. For our fans, it’s the attempt to make them believe that it’s worth coming to a show because it’s going to be different and better than the last one. And that’s the key.”  SW Soular Preclipse with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe Friday, Aug 18. 6:30pm. Century Center Courtyard 70 SW Century Dr., Bend. $25/adv, $30/door.

Eclipse-Worthy Jams Funk’s Solar Obscuration Celebration brings Portland musicians to Suttle Lake for a weekend of quality music By Anne Pick

Open Mon-Fri 10-6; Sat 10-5

541-382-3245 Sallie Ford will perform at Chris Funk’s Solar Obscuration Celebration at Suttle Lodge.


saw an eclipse when I was a kid,” says Chris Funk, curator of Funk’s Solar Obscuration Festival and multi-instrumentalist for The Decemberists. “I was probably seven or eight years old and I remember wearing the little glasses you’d wear in a tanning bed and people yelling at us not to look at the sun. It felt really ominous and scary. I’m looking forward to having a do-over.” As a part of Portland indie rock band The Decemberists, Funk has a lot on his plate this summer. Aside from regular touring, the band hosted their own two-day musical festival in Montana last weekend. “I’m friends with some of the folks from the (Suttle) Lodge and we were just talking and I had mentioned that I’d like to come to the lodge to watch the eclipse,” Funk says. “One thing led to another and they mentioned that we should do some music and that I should book the music. I said I was at capacity, but said yes anyway. I basically just found a lot of my Portland friends and bands I admire. It’s a good selection of music across genres; it should be interesting.” Funk’s Solar Obscuration Celebration includes a lineup of Portland-based bands spanning a variety of genres, and the most killer part — there’s no cover, it’s all free. Festival-goers can look forward to seeing bands including Ural Thomas and The Pain, Sallie Ford, Y La Bamba, The Builders and The Butchers, as well as some of Funk’s favorites including 1939 Ensemble, an instrumental group from Portland. “All of this music, you can engage with or disengage with and enjoy the environment with,” Funk says. Speaking of the environment, visitors to Funk’s Solar Obscuration Celebration can enjoy the beautiful, peaceful setting of Suttle Lake. eat meals at the restaurant at The

Boathouse and float in the lake as you listen to the roots rock sounds of live music. “I think it’ll be unique because it’s not this really overdone festival. It’s pretty low key and low budget with really quality music,” Funk says. According to Funk, Connie Wan, the event manager at Suttle Lodge, wanted something similar to Newport Music Festival or Pickathon. He wanted to select music he enjoys that would also help create a good time. Funk picked music that’s somewhat family-friendly and also a good expression of Oregon music. “We’re going to try to host a round of Cobra, which is an improv game,” Funk says. “I think in that moment we’re going to try to tap into the solar system a little bit. Also, my friend Avery Trufleman, who’s a senior producer for the podcast “99% Invisible,” wrote an original piece about the eclipse, and she’s going to come perform it and I’m going to perform it with her.” Cobra is a game invented by John Zorn, a famous jazz musician, in the ‘80s. Musicians gather together and in this instance, Funk will hold up a series of flashcards and then conduct everyone. They might take inspiration from the audience, but they don’t even pick a key signature—they just start playing. “For me, music is kind of everything and it would seem bizarre to go out and enjoy the eclipse without music in some form,” says Funk. “It’s a part of everything we do. I also think it’s a great way to congregate with people and celebrate something unique.”  SW Funk’s Solar Obscuration Celebration Sat. Aug 19 and Sun.

hen it comes to Bests, this year may very well eclipse the rest. We just endured one of the snowiest (and best for snowriding!) years in decades, for one. For two, we’re in an area known for being best for viewing the Great American Eclipse. Add in the nods and accolades we continue to get from far and wide (Outside magazine’s “Best Multisport Town,” for one) and we’re certainly racking up the Bests. But wait, dear readers! The Bests aren’t done yet. Read on to find out where else Central Oregonians are tossing shine this year. This 2017 Best of Central Oregon issue includes new categories such as Best Place to Work (separated by businesses over and under 50 employees) and Best Budtender—and also “fun” category winners, determined by the Source staff, such as Best Pothole and Best Up and Coming Neighborhood. Oh yeah, Source readers. We know what you like to talk about… and it usually involves roads and real estate. So hold onto your flimsy NASA-sanctioned eclipse glasses and bust into the water bottles you’ve been hoarding since June, because this is a Best of Central Oregon guide that definitely eclipses all others.

amily-owned Oregon grocery store chain Market of Choice opened its 10th store—right here in Bend—a little over a year ago. The bright, modern building is nestled between downtown and the Old Mill District on Colorado Avenue., making it convenient for both locals and visitors. Store manager and Bend native Casey Capell said, “The support from the community has been so positive since we opened the store. We’ve worked really hard and it’s exciting to see that work pay off.” You can visit Market of Choice to simply pick up groceries, but they offer so much more. In fact, you could stop in to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have so many different pre-made hot and cold options (plus a growler station, wine bar and juice bar) you’ll feel like you’re visiting several different restaurants in one place. Craving Mexican? Stop at the burrito bar. Have a taste for Asian? Build your own stir-fry bowl at the Mongolian barbecue and watch the meat and vegetables you’ve selected sizzle on a large round griddle before they’re scooped up and served hot. They recently added a Poke bar that’s so popular they often run out of raw tuna salad. Once you have your food you can be on your way or stay for a while. Market of Choice has plenty of dining tables upstairs and downstairs, so you can pull up a chair and relax as you enjoy your delicious meal.

By Jared Rasic


’ve lived in Bend for 18 years, and one thing I can definitely say about the city is how much it has changed. Some of those changes are great, such as more diversity and culture, better food and more stuff to do on a Saturday night—but some of those changes can make Bend unrecognizable to the local. The crimes are more heinous, the traffic is brutal and there are people everywhere... like all of the time. So with all that said, the staff pick for favorite local sticker is simple. It says: “Bend Sucks: Don’t Move Here.” Obviously the sticker is a joke and Bend doesn’t suck (much); instead it’s just trying to trick the rest of Washington and California from moving here. The idea for the sticker came from Lauren Johnson at Newport Market (where the stickers can be purchased) and was executed by Big Cat Sticker Shack. Her inspiration came from a customer. “And then we ran with it,” says Johnson, “always remembering that you can’t take things too seriously.” I asked Ian Sexton from Big Cat Sticker Shack if he thought Bend had changed much since he was born here. “Bend went from a quiet town of 18,000 people with dirt roads to a chaotic maze of spandex, Subarus and people. It’s quite amazing.” My Bend sticker would be even more blunt. It’s a line from “Forrest Gump,” when he tries to sit down on the bus and the mean little ginger kid looks at him and says “This Seat’s Taken.” SW Newport Avenue Market 1121 NW Newport Ave., Bend. 541-382-3940 Big Cat Sticker Shack 301 NW Greyhawk Ave., Bend 541-516-6286

routons restaurant was founded in 2003 and has been running strong ever since. Founders James Watts and Frank Farella are fully committed to their mission of combining “unique flavors with premium ingredients to create an innovative selection of menu items.” The fresh, balanced menu offers something for everyone. That’s why Croutons stands at the top in not one, but two categories: Best Lunch AND Best Salad. The aroma of fresh soup simmering, combined with the hiss of the panini grill incite the mouth to water. Looking for a cold salad bar hidden under a smudged sneeze guard? Look elsewhere. Croutons offers a variety of customizable salads, prepared to order, beautiful and substantial. For lunch, a favorite is the Combo Anything Menu. Sandwiches, soups and salads, with more than enough flavor profiles and portion options to satisfy everyone. Bart Butler, Croutons’ Pacific Northwest owner/president, showed gratitude toward his staff and the community for the company’s current success and future expansion: “I feel very excited, honored and blessed about winning best lunch and salad in the Source. Croutons employees work very hard to make each visit to Croutons a great experience. Thank you to them for their hard work and dedication. We all thank everyone in Bend and Redmond for your great support the last 12 years. We opened a new location in Redmond a little over a year ago which has been well received and are looking to open a third Bend location by the hospital!”

Best Up and Coming Neighborhood


NE Bend By Nicole Vulcan


ave dreams biking or walking to work downtown? Are you in the “middle income” bracket, which means you’re probably newish in your career, juggling student loans, payments on a 4WD, your organic produce budget and maybe even daycare, on top of your home costs? Sorry, up-and-comer who’s looking to buy property, but it appears the “cool” west side may not be for you. According to Area Market Surveys (interpreted with the help of Principal Broker Nick Nayne), the area of northwest Bend that borders OB Riley Road. to the east, Awbrey Glen to the north, Shevlin Park to the west and Commerce Avenue. to the south saw just six—yes, six—single-family homes of 1 acre or less selling for less than $300K in the past year. The price range of the most homes sold in that area? It was $550K to $599K, with a total of 67 homes sold in that price range. But don’t fret, dear youngish Bendito, because the west side is not the only happenin’ hood. Northeast Bend, which borders Cooley Road to the north, Butler Market to the south, Hwy 97 to the west and 27th St. to the east is fast becoming a hot spot. In the past year, 11 homes there went for between $200K and $249K, another 34 sold for between $250K and $299K, and the highest number, with 48 homes, were sold for between $300K and $349K (tied with 48 for the $350K to $399K range.) The northeast hood is still (relatively) affordable, and a 15-minute bike ride from downtown. New additions including 10 Barrel Brewing and The Backyard Brick Oven Pizza + Pub are making the area more livable, too—and since Bend’s Urban Growth Boundary expansion will likely mean more infill in areas such as this, expect even more amenities and creative housing options—some which may not fall into the single-family-home paradigm. Need that artisanal coffee or pastry before you cross 3rd Street? Hit up the nearby Midtown Market on 6th Street. for fresh baked goods, or Backporch Coffee Roasters on Greenwood Avenue. for that macchiato on your way to work. It’s not like the west side—yet—but it’s cool middle market peeps like you who will help it along. SW

Best Pothole


I’m Not Drunk — I’m Just Avoiding Potholes By Magdalena Bokowa

Best Asian Food Noi Thai Cuisine By Jared Rasic


hen it comes to Best Asian, Noi is the star of the show. It seems like it wasn’t long ago when there wasn’t much to choose from for Asian cuisine in Central Oregon. Now we have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to Thai and Japanese food (although we could still use a legit Chinese restaurant). Since Noi opened its doors in 2012, the team has been doing what they do best: quietly making delicious and authentic Thai food and keeping it classy. Whether it’s the subtle and spicy Bangkok Red Curry or the savory pork explosion of the Moo Dade Deaw, everything we’ve tried is executed perfectly. Tucky Wongpaka, marketing director for Noi, explains what makes their dishes so delectable: “At Noi, we provide the royal Thai dining experience that you cannot find at any Thai restaurants in the U.S. Our Thai culinary team is imported directly from Thailand and all of them used to work for five-star hotels in Thailand and some used to cook for the Thai royal family.” Wongpaka, the staff and owners of Noi are quite proud to have been voted Best Asian food. “It really means a lot to us,” says Wongpaka. “We never thought that we’d win the award. Our guests inspire us every day to work harder in order to bring the best Thai dining experience to them and now our hard work has paid off.” Noi Thai Cuisine 550 NW Franklin Ave. Suite 148., Bend 541-647-6904

he saga of this thing is f**king incredible,” begins Wyatt Gaines, Source Weekly production manager and Bend east-sider. “It all started in the winter when this thing was a 6-foot icy gash in the road. You had to drive to the right — almost onto the curb — to try and avoid sliding into this thing.” Gaines continues, as a misty gaze overtakes his bearded face. His tone quickens as he transports himself back into the dead of the 2016-17 apocalyptic winter, and the deep ruts in the pavement at the corner of Division Street. and Reed Market Road.—the Source’s staff pick for “Best Pothole.” “You know the Oregon Trail?” Gaines asks. I slowly nod in artificial agreement. “Well, it’s like this pothole emulates the deep wagon ruts of the old Oregon Trail — it’s that bad. I silently applaud his descriptive illustration and distinct historical reference. “I ended up just saying F**K it and avoided that area all together,” he sighs, “I went up to Third Street instead.” Gaines knows a thing or two about potholes: he went to art school in northwest Portland — a city where there’s even a pothole “help” line. Once reported, crews organize “Patch-a-thons” — a new initiative to fill the numerous potholes caused by this season’s many winter storms. All well and good, but what about Bend and its pothole dilemma? Well, there’s been relief, with a cash injection of $5.2 million going toward street preservation—a 50 percent increase from the last budget. And have you noticed the slick repaving of those downtown streets done in the dead of night? Judging by your onslaught of fiery Facebook comments, no, no you haven’t. Everyone likes to whine. Seattleites have rain. Portlanders have Californians. Canada has the United States. Bendites have potholes, and…. Californians. And when your tires are eclipsed by a pothole, teeth rattling while a Californian flips you off for driving too slow, we sometimes have warranted complaints. But if you really think we’re bad, don’t move to Portland. It’s currently expecting a backlog of 1,000 potholes. And those are the reported ones.  SW

Best Patio Cabin 22 By Nicole Vulcan


ou just crushed it on the mountain and you’re looking for a sweet place to chill. Or maybe your house on the west side is way too crowded with roommates or Airbnbers these days, and you’re looking for a sizeable outdoor spot to be with some of your yet-unknown friends, grab a bite and kick it. Whatever your reasons for needing a patio on which to chill… like, stat, the readers of the Source have spoken, and have dubbed Cabin 22 to be that sweet patio spot they’re craving. Cabin 22 is not hard to miss; cruise down from Mt. Bachelor to turn in that rental equipment and you’re sure to spot it on Century Drive. In fact, the patio may very well be the first thing you spot when you roll up on your bike or in your truck; it’s big and hard to miss. At night, stave off the high desert chill near one of the spot’s two giant fire pits. For libations, look for an ample craft beer selection and a delightful pub grub menu—which readers tell us is ever expanding and improving. And while the TVs inside are a big draw for some, it’s the outside area that wins this spot the nod from readers in 2017’s Best Of Central Oregon. Congrats to Cabin 22 for their win as Best Patio!

Best Bartender Rick Swegel — Maverick’s Country Bar and Grill By Jared Rasic


can’t get into all the details about the last time I went to Maverick’s, but it was one hell of an evening. All I can really say is that it was whiskey night and I was drinking Pendleton with my lawyer and writing partner. By the end of the night I had had a run-in with an extremely friendly motorcycle club and was propositioned by a very eager lady. Not sure why I haven’t been back, because that was one of my favorite nights ever. I’m sure bartender Rick Swegel continues to serve people magical evenings since you, the people, voted him Bend’s best bartender. I asked owner Mike Hayes the trick to being a memorable bartender: “A memorable bartender is nothing more than a hard working, friendly and knowledgeable mixologist who can adjust to a patron’s energy.” When I asked Swegel what made him different than the other bartenders in Bend, he answered with a smile: “Experience.” Bartending obviously has its own set of unique challenges. “The hardest part was waking up early to drive my kids to school when they were little. The easiest was having my days free to enjoy Central Oregon outdoors.” When asked if he had anything he wanted to say to the people who voted for him, his answer was perfect: “Thanks very much and Go HAWKS!” No—thank you, Rick.  SW Maverick’s 20565 NE Brinson Blvd., Bend 541-382-4270

The Dogwood Cocktail Cabin By Magdalena Bokowa


f you haven’t had beets, habaneros, dill or shiso leaf infuse your cocktails, then you’ve clearly been missing out on the best libations in town. The Dogwood Cocktail Cabin is known for finely balancing out unique and peculiar ingredients —such as dill, carrots or egg whites — with top shelf liqueurs and spirits, creating tantalizing taste sensations that will have you ordering more. “My cocktail inspirations are culinary and culturally based,” begins co-founder Phoebe Pederson. “So, for example, my love of Thailand and green coconut curry translated into a cocktail infused with coconut, basil and matcha.” Phoebe and her husband Doug opened their first incarnation of The Dogwood in the small ski town of Crested Butte, Colo., remodeling a 1800s-era cabin, akin to a miner’s shack. Wood accents, dimmed lighting and eccentric and eclectic furnishings mimic the feel of that rustic lodge in the Bend locale — now open for three and a half years — though the cocktails here are more exotic. “Crested Butte was really isolated, so it was hard to experiment since it was hard to find foreign ingredients easily,” says Phoebe, “We’ve been able to play a bit more here, go on shopping trips to Portland to check out the Asian and Lebanese markets, and the menu now has breadth and creativity.” Doug says their creative cocktail menu, changing every six months, is 100 percent their own, and that Phoebe is behind most unusual creations. “My most failed attempt?” laughs Phoebe, “Trying to add Durian,” — the pungent South-East Asian fruit — “into a cocktail. It smelt so bad I had to fumigate the bar.” Doug says he’s seen the taste of their clientele change and evolve as the years have gone by. “Everyone wanted beer, a whiskey ginger or an old fashioned, but we came up with some unusual substitutes that are in the same vein and taste profile but is different.” He mentioned the Herban Cowboy, which has black pepper-infused bourbon and fernet with additional ingredients of molasses, pomegranate and black licorice. “That’s been really popular amongst Bendites.” Apart from stellar cocktails and a venue that finds the balance somewhere between upscale and comfortable, Doug says their success is also attributed to their friendly, knowledgeable and committed staff. “We’ve tried to make it into a place where you want to go every night.” They’ve succeeded.  SW Dogwood Cocktail Cabin 147 NW Minnesota Ave., Bend. 541-706-9949

Best Happy Hour 900 Wall By Nicole Vulcan


t’s the respite at the end of the day. Sometimes, it’s the only thing keeping you going through a busy work week. It’s called “la hora feliz”… the witching hour… the time to unwind. Whatever you call it, one thing is plain: we Central Oregonians love us some happy hour—as evidenced by the vast number of happy hour listings we publish in our Happy Hour Guide, out every spring and fall. But when it comes to las horas feliz, not all are created equal. In fact, in the case of this year’s winner for Best Happy Hour, it’s not “happy hour” at all, but happy “hours” plural. Hard to miss in its location at—you guessed it, genius—900 Wall Street in downtown Bend, the modern American restaurant and bar serves up happy hour every day from 3 to 6 pm. Yes, that means three full hours of happy hour goodness, set against a backdrop of downtown-y bustle mixed with industrial-chic design. Sit outside and watch the world go by while you sip on the specialty cocktails crafted with fresh juices, or cool off inside; either way you’re getting a memorable upscale experience.

“I think it’s a great value. There aren’t many places in town where you can get oysters on the half shell for $1.75, and house made charcuterie for $5, fresh squeezed Greyhounds for $6… and the list goes on,” says General Manager Katie Egge. High on our list of beloved happy hour beverages: the Michelada—a souped-up, spicy version of the standard light beer. You can also nosh on the Vietnamese sandwich, pork belly sliders or a host of other yummy small plates. Whatever your preferences, and whatever your nickname for happy hour, it’s not tough to discern why the discerning residents of Central Oregon chose 900 Wall (yet again; it’s won six times before) as Best Happy Hour.

Best Escape for Parents


A Trip with Bend Westy By Nicole Vulcan

e know you love those little critters—but let’s face it, there’s a time when the responsibilities of jobs and homes and kids weigh so heavy, that the only thing to do is endeavor to escape it all. And if we know you like we think we do, Central Oregon, then your idea of “escape” is a quiet spot out in nature… a babbling brook taking the place of the babbling baby. (She’s cute, yes, but also a LOT of work.) Normally, getting to that quiet spot out in nature means sorting, cleaning and packing up your camping gear, prepping the car—and then hitting the store for some cold suds and food. That is, unless you go the Bend Westy route. As a busy parent myself, I can personally vouch for the benefits of being handed a set of keys to a van that’s packed with all the sleeping and cooking gear you need—and even better, someone else checked the tire pressure and oil. When I rolled up to check one out, owner Brion Gebow even had the Grateful Dead tunes bumpin’. Bend Westy, which offers a handful of vans for rent on its website, provides all you need to get out to the desert, the forest or the ocean. All you gotta do is buy the food and suds. “Rent the van, go out for three or four nights or maybe a week… and you’ve had a great time, and then you can just give it back,” says Gebow. “It’s about seeing the natural beauty, it’s about being able to camp in quiet areas, it’s about those experiences together.” Yes, there’s room for your little ones in the upper sleep deck, but then again, isn’t that what babysitters are for? Best escape, indeed. SW

Best Place to Park Your Van for Longer Than 12 Days


By Magdalena Bokowa


ike beautiful women, appetites and phalluses, they come in all shapes and sizes. Mobile homes, that is. Whether it’s a colossal fifth wheel, a janky motorhome or a hip Sprinter van, the rate of those parking — and living—on the street is growing. As is the disdain. “How convenient to have a freshly-changed bathroom for you. It must be nice taking advantage of the town’s amenities as a permanent resident without bothering to pay any property tax,” “Sick_of_bums,” wrote in response to the Source’s Van Life feature. “...These Sprinter van people strike me as freeloaders rather than free-rangers,” said another. As the influx of van-lifers grows, most have been pushed to the outskirts of town in an effort to hide their cool, vagabond ways. Just past million-dollar homes and mountain bikers edging out trail, Skyliners Road boasts rows of everything from eclectic VW buses to $80,000 tiny homes. It came in runner-up in our “survey” (read: our staffers’ whimsical selections) to find the best spot, due to its proximity to town and the fact that you may be able to get away with going beyond the 12-day limit. Much like beauty pageants, no one cares about the second runner-up— but we thought you’d like it anyway: the numerous (and random) dead-ends on gravel roads around the Midtown and First Street Rapids neighborhoods. The quiet tranquility is ideal. The nosy neighbors rapping on your window, asking you to move, is not. So, after all this hooplah? The best spot to park longer than 12 days? Well, a swath of land, just east of Redmond, north of the airport, that’s conveniently owned by BLM, COID and the Redmond School Board. But, too bad! The secret’s out, and they’re ousting everyone, like right now.  SW

By Anne Pick

ooking for your sun, moon and stars? Don’t expect this account to encourage you. When online dating first started ramping up, people put a lot of time and effort into their profiles—or at least my girlfriends and I did. You’d write the perfect headline, be sure to include all of your favorite music just in case you found that one other person in Bend who was really into The Faint. Upon finally meeting, you’d go to dinner and have to spend 60+ painstaking minutes with some bro who, as it turns out, doesn’t actually read, go for long walks on the beach or play the violin. Thanks to the instant gratification that is Tinder, not only do we not have to pretend like attraction isn’t initially important, we can meet individuals within minutes and blow them off just as quickly. No need to suffer through a whole meal when you can meet in a public place for a beer and peace out at soon as the last sip hits your tongue. In the heyday of my personal Tinder dating, I had a variety of great blowoffs. Of course, the one dude who I kinda liked did the typical non-confrontational linger texting until it dwindled to nothing. My favorite blowoff went down as follows — Swipe right on a guy who looks moderately handsome. Decide to meet the next day at Cascade West for beers. Walk in the door and as soon as he opened his mouth it was over, and not in a good way. Proceed to make awkward conversation until he asks if I want another beer. “Sure… uhh actually, I have to get home. I promised my roommate we could watch ‘The Voice’ together. Thanks for the beer, though!” I bolt out the door and moments later get a text from the guy. “Seriously?! That was the worst blowoff ever. Good luck!” A case of star-crossed lovers? Nope, just dating in the age of Tinder.  SW

Best Barrel Aged Beer The Abyss



By Jared Rasic

Compared to other barrel-aged beers, this one blocks out the sun.


knew I was in love with craft beer the moment I took my first sip of The Abyss by Deschutes Brewery. Seasonal, black as the darkest night and lovingly aged in wine, whiskey or scotch barrels, The Abyss isn’t just a beer. It’s the taste of possibilities that only grows better with age. For the last decade or so, I have gotten a bottle of The Abyss on my birthday, then opened it on my next birthday. The first year I did that was sad. Deschutes is obviously the godfather of the brew community in Bend and the old guard that still takes chances on a recipe...never content to coast on their reputation alone. They took chances with the The Abyss, delicately crafting the Imperial Stout with blackstrap molasses, licorice, vanilla beans and cherry bark. Basically, it’s like drinking a chocolate covered cherry floating in coffee and a few drops of bourbon. The beer is thick. You have to take your time and respect The Abyss or it will fight you. There’s so much going on with each sip that you should be writing the Great American Novel while drinking it. The oaky and woody vanilla scent makes you imagine lying in the grass with puppies. The finish goes quickly like a half-forgotten dream. The Abyss defines the entire genre of imperial stouts and will destroy all who try and take the crown. You should be drinking this beer in an ice cave in Antarctica—or just in Bend last winter. It will warm you like you crawled inside a hollowed out tauntaun. This beer is perfect and my easy choice for Best Barrel Aged Beer. SW

Best Locally Brewed Beer & Best IPA Boneyard RPM By Kevin Gifford


n five scant years, the beer scene has changed dramatically in the United States. The number of operational breweries now exceeds 5,500. Massive, vibrant craft scenes have emerged in cities including Miami, Tulsa, and Bellingham that would never have been associated with beer before this millennium. And the mega-brewers that defined the beverage in the U.S. for 60 years after Prohibition are beginning to aggressively storm the industry, sparking intense debate over where the “spirit” of good beverages really lies. Through it all, however, there has been one constant to Central Oregon, even as the sheer number of breweries skyrocket (Kobold Brewing’s Redmond taproom is now open!). That constant is Boneyard Beer, the de-facto Official Beer of Bend. Like Guinness to Ireland, Yuengling to Pennsylvania, or Olympia to all our dads here in the Northwest, Boneyard’s RPM IPA—just “Boneyard” will suffice to order it at any bar in Oregon—has largely defined the brewery ever since owner Tony Lawrence and co-founders Clay and Melodee Storey kicked things off in 2010. It wasn’t long before their diminutive warehouse in an otherwise quiet neighborhood outside of downtown became mobbed with visitors. The formula is “pretty simple,” as Lawrence put it: “We aim to brew clean, balanced, interesting, high quality liquids—quality being our number one focus.” Keeping up with demand for RPM was touch and go for a while, with practically every square inch of the old warehouse filled with fermenters and Lawrence lamenting in 2013 that Boneyard would need to be a “90 percent RPM” brewery for a little while. Nowadays—thanks to a new 40-barrel production facility on Bend’s east side, devoted almost wholly to RPM—Boneyard’s doing a much better job keeping up with demand. It’s allowed the brewery to branch out a bit, including the Incredible Pulp, a citrusy sort of pale ale that’s practically fine-tuned for the hot summer months. The world has been noticing, as seen with several collaborations Boneyard’s made over the years with international breweries—the most recent an IPA made with Estonia’s Põhjala Brewery. That one’s available in Europe only, sadly. “The opinion of the consumer matters more to us than any other award,” Lawrence says. “The Source ‘Best Ofs’ are by far the best awards to receive. If the consumer and the manufacturer of a product are on the same page, we both are winners. So let it be known—Boneyard loves the people of Central Oregon.” SW

Best Clothing Consignment Cosa Cura By Anne Pick


hile many Bendites may have written the former name on the ballot, Cosa Cura, formerly Rescue Collective, rises highest in the sky when it comes to Bend consignment shops. As Rescue Collective, the business focused on offering consignment clothing and providing a place for local artists and fashionistas to sell their goods. In 2016, Cosa Cura expanded its business model to include locally made home good and decor. Appropriately named, Cosa Cura loosely translates in Italian to “Things Curated or Hand Picked.” Owner Angela Dietrich has taken that meaning to heart, curating a wide selection of desirable, locally made products and consignment pieces. Upon entering Cosa Cura, you’ll easily be able to find the piece that will make your date this weekend see stars — you look that good. On the consignment end of things, Cosa Cura selects goods based on the season. In the late summer they’ll start accepting items for the fall — boots, sweaters and other warm clothing items. Bring in your lightly used clothes and earn a percentage of the final sale price. Clothes start at one price and if they haven’t sold by a certain date, move to the next price point. Have a pair of stunning Frye boots that you don’t want to part with for less than a set amount? Cosa Cura also does some fixed-price consignment. Whether looking for the perfect prom dress, rad jeans that make your booty look bangin’ or a one-of-a-kind piece of locally made jewelry for your best friend’s birthday, Bendites know to find the treasure they seek — Cosa Cura.

Best Sign from the Women’s March


By Nicole Vulcan Photo by Joshua Langlais


n Friday., Jan. 20, the man who was caught on tape boasting about how he would “grab her by the pussy” was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. The next day, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced: “That was the largest audience to witness an inauguration, period.” (According to Politifact, #45’s inauguration numbers are estimated at 250,000 to 600,000 people. Former President Barack Obama’s numbers were 1.8 million in 2009 and 1 million in 2013.) Meanwhile, on Jan. 21, the Women’s March became the largest protest in U.S. history, involving an estimated 3.3 to 4.6 million people in nearly 550 cities in the U.S. and 100 cities around the globe, according to The Atlantic. Here in Bend, several thousand people took to the streets. The march brought out a host of colorful slogans, signs and pussy hats. The creativity was inspiring—but today, looking back at all that’s transpired and the activism that’s been rampant post-election, this one earns our nod for Best Sign from the Women’s March.

Best Way to Get Around


(without your big-ass truck) By Caitlin Richmond


e all know that the traffic in Bend is insane, especially in the summertime. But if you’re driving your car, you’re part of the problem. Sure, you could bike to work, but there’s always the possibility that you’ll get hit by a texting driver, inching along Third Street. There are runners who would tell you that running everywhere is the obvious choice—but showing up to a date drenched in sweat isn’t going to do you any favors. Here are some alternative options. Winter In winter, a pair of rock skis is the clear choice. Don’t bother spending a ton of money on a new fancy set up; just go to a used gear store or a ski swap and buy the cheapest skis you can. This way, you can still ski to work even when there’s very little snow on the ground and you won’t feel bad for beating up your gear. Summer In the summer, a transportation mode that will let you feel the wind running through your hair—but also won’t let you get sunburned—is a cyclepub... if you can find 13 other people to cycle with you. There’s also the big bike option, so you’ll only need to convince seven people to go with you wherever you want to go. These biking options provide you with a bit more coverage than a regular bike might, so you won’t have to worry as much about pissing off the drivers around you. And since they’re so big, you don’t even have to try to stick to the bike lane!  SW

Best Budtender Justin McCune By Caitlin Richmond


ometimes being the best takes years of practice, but for Justin McCune, voted Best Budtender, it’s only taken him three months to “eclipse” all other budtenders. A relatively new hire at Miracle Greens, McCune hit the ground running, hitting the books and doing some experiential learning. “I picked two strains and got really familiar with those and only smoked those two for a couple weeks, so I could get really familiar with them,” McCune explained. “Then I started branching out a little more and trying other strains.” Having worked in the restaurant industry, McCune is no stranger to customer service—and this is where he really shines. If you know what you want, he’ll get that for you while he talks to you like he’s genuinely interested in whatever you have to say. If you don’t know what you want— which many customers new to legal weed don’t—he’ll patiently help you figure it out and give you recommendations that won’t confuse your stoner brain. “I like to ask people what kind of adventures they are going to do that day so I can help with the selection process,” he said. “When I give recommendations I like to tell them what I felt like doing after I smoked it. This one made me want to go for a run, this one made me feel like chopping wood, this one gave me mad munchies two hours in—that kind of thing.” SW Miracle Greens 905 SE 3rd St., Bend. 541-952-2363

hen the front wheel of a bicycle meets an immovable object and the rider tomahawks over the handlebars, time has a weird way of slowing down. Amongst the chaos, riders often hear the beautiful sound of a violin. But if you manage to avoid such calamities, downhill riding can be pretty fun. The best way to defy gravity is to visit Mt. Bachelor’s Bike Park. For those mountain bikers prone to clumsy tumbles, start with the beginner lift, Sunshine Accelerator. The lift is great for all ability levels. Once you’ve mastered the beginner course, step it up to Pine Marten Express. With 13 miles of downhill trails, there are plenty of options. To avoid the tomahawking, save the advanced double black diamond trails to the experts. Kids and teens can hedge their bets by learning the basics at Mt. Bachelor’s week-long Gravity Bike Camps. Since gravity and heads are involved, always be sure to wear the proper protective gear, preferably including a full-face helmet. In addition, knowing the signs and symptoms of concussions before you ride (confusion, dizziness, nausea or vomiting and sensitivity to light) is never a bad thing. Uphill or down, stay safe out there, Central Oregon!   SW Mt. Bachelor Bike Park 13000 SW Century Dr., Bend 800-829-2442

Best Dental Group Bend Family Dentistry By Annette Benedetti


or many, the mere thought of a trip to the dentist can invoke paralyzing anxiety—but if this award can be evidence, it seems the patients at Bend Family Dentistry have nothing but confidence in their dental care providers. The Bend-based dental group offers preventative, general and cosmetic dentistry to Central Oregonians, prioritizing both patients’ and the community’s needs above all else. “We strive to always put the patient first, and we do everything we can to make sure they have a good experience. This award means that residents know they can get great service at Bend Family Dentistry,” says BFD’s owner, Dr. Brad Hester. With a central location and a team of providers specializing in a wide range of disciplines, Bend Family Dentistry makes maintaining dental health easier. Families can have all of their dental needs met in one place, with the option to schedule family block appointments. Bend Family Dentistry treats individuals age seven to age 90 and up. The practice also works to support the community’s most vulnerable citizens by supporting local events and nonprofits. “We partner with Saving Grace, Shepherd’s House and Volunteers in Medicine to help those who don’t have funds for dental care,” says Hester. And perhaps the best part: in addition to excellent care, patients can expect a great view while they’re in the chair. SW Bend Family Dentistry 660 NE 3rd St. Suite 3, Bend 541-876-1573

wenty years ago, a young, exhausted raft guide with aching feet and the knowledge of a master gardener created Skin Doctor—a salve for dry cracked hands and heels. Before she knew it, naturopaths, physicians, and estheticians carried it nationwide. This initial success led to the birth of Angelina Organic Skincare, a beauty boutique and line of natural products that bridges the gap between handmade and medical grade skincare. Today, founder and creative director Angelina Swanson handcrafts over 100 natural skin care formulas that treat both the face and body. Many of her products focus on meeting the needs of people with sensitive skin. “Every single product is born out of a desire to meet a common skin care need, whether eczema, aging, acne or to combat skin cancer,” says Swanson. Using a blend of Western medicine, traditional herbalism and Ayurvedic medicine, Swanson formulates every product herself and is proud to use botanicals grown by local organic farmers. “We are lucky to be surrounded by people growing the highest grade medicinals in the world,” she explains. She acquires additional ingredients through fair trade practices with farms and cooperatives worldwide. In regard to her Best Of award, Swanson says it tells her she’s meeting her community’s needs. From local farmers with dry, cracking hands to the snowboarders and mountain bikers in need of defense from the wind and sun, Swanson’s goal is to protect and heal each customer’s skin so they can continue to enjoy the rugged and beautiful Central Oregon lifestyle.

Best Auto Repair Import Performance By Anne Pick


espite its name, the folks at Import Performance fix more than just imports. From Sprinter vans to heavy duty Chevy pickups, all the way down to the Honda Civic you’ve been driving since high school, Import Performance can not only fix it, but does so with excellent customer service that keeps Bendites coming back. One of the greatest benefits to taking your vehicle to Import Performance? They offer the use of a loaner car while your car is in the shop — for free! You just pay for the gas upon returning the vehicle. This awesome perk comes in handy when the stars don’t align in your schedule, as it rarely does when you need automotive work done. With a 11,000 square foot facility, completed in 2015, Import Performance has been designed to be the most advanced independent auto repair shop in Bend. Gabriel Christian opened the family owned auto repair business in 2002. Christian employs skilled technicians who have earned the trust of Bend vehicle owners since opening. Christian himself is A.S.E. Master Certified and graduated at the top of his class from Sequoia Institute, a prominent technical school. “This community is my community,” Christian says. “Most Bend folks moved here for similar reasons and we are happy people. I feel fortunate to deal with many great customers, some of them I have been serving for over 15 years!” Needless to say, Import Performance has eclipsed the competition in Bend.  SW Import Performance 20680 Empire Ave., Bend. 541-382-9599

hether it’s the dog days of summer, the tooth-chattering winter, a blossoming spring or a crisp fall, Wanderlust Tours delivers on the mission dreamed up back in 1993. For nearly a quarter century, Wanderlust has been successfully guiding brilliant, exhilarating and informative outdoor tours. The adventure menu varies with the seasons. In the summer, customers can enjoy half-day, naturalist-guided tours such as “Brews and Views,” or moonlight canoeing.

Spring and fall offer their own unique list of thrilling tours, always with the added bonus option of customization. Whether staring blissfully off the peaks of the Cascades, kayaking the Deschutes River or exploring the pitch-black caves of Central Oregon, there’s no question as to why Wanderlust Tours has earned the badge of Best Tour Company. On behalf of his beloved company, founder Dave Nissen shows extreme gratitude and a true love of exploring the outdoors. “Wanderlust Tours is grateful that our community deems our company to be the best tour operator in Central Oregon.

ith the Great American Eclipse descending upon us this weekend, many of us dread going out into the world for fear of traffic and general chaos. Have no fear! The best place to escape the eclipse crowds and still not forfeit your right to culture and entertainment can be found in the heart of Drake Park—which many can access via biking, walking or taking the bus. This year, Shakespeare in the Park brings “Titus Andronicus” to the park, starring none other than Joseph Marcell. Those familiar with the Shakespeare scene around the globe will recognize this talented actor from his breadth of Shakespeare experience, while those of us familiar with American pop culture know him best as Geoffrey from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” With most of the eclipse crowds flocking to Big Prairie Summit and locales close to Madras, those staying in Bend have the opportunity to see the cast of Portland’s Northwest Classical Theatre Company take the stage to perform this Shakespearean tragedy. Not familiar with the story? Here’s a quick rundown: Titus, a Roman general, returns home after 40 years at war against the Goths. Titus executes the eldest son of Tamora, Queen of the Goths, which sets off a long chain of revenge, cruelty and murder. This becomes even more aggravated when she marries the new Emperor, Saturninus. You’ll be on the edge of your seat watching this exciting tragedy unfold. Clearly, this will be the best place outside of hiding in the darkness of your own home to escape the eclipse crowds in Bend. SW Shakespeare in the Park Fri. Aug. 18 & Sat.

entral Oregonians love to support a good cause—especially when it protects the area’s furriest citizens. Perhaps that’s why Bend Spay+Neuter Project’s annual Fur Ball was voted Best Local Fundraiser—or maybe it’s the stars of the show that won the community over. With dogs dolled up and strutting their stuff on the catwalk, it’s no surprise that this unusual fashion show sells out every year, keeping the animal-loving nonprofit up and running. Bend Spay+Neuter Project’s executive director Megan Gram says, “By providing programs designed to keep pets and people together, and through partnerships with local shelters and rescues, Bend Spay+Neuter Project mission is to make sure every pet in Central Oregon has a loving home.” According to Gram, the nonprofit has performed almost 50,000 low to no-cost surgeries without a penny of federal funding. It also provides affordable preventative veterinary care and pet food in an effort to eliminate financial constraints as a barrier to animal ownership. Bend Spay+Neuter Project depends solely on funds from events and monies donated by individuals and businesses. The Fur Ball, scheduled for Aug. 18, is its biggest fundraiser of the year. Along with the fashion show, attendees will enjoy music by Shireen Amini and Flip Flop Sounds, dinner and an auction. SW

ounded in 1988, Deschutes Brewery—and its downtown Bend public house—are two Bend icons, providing beloved beers and a beloved gathering spot for both visitors and locals. Revered for its full-flavored craft beers, this ale-producing giant earns its staff’s (and our readership’s) adoration with unique employment policies and a dedication to fostering a healthy company culture. Deschutes Brewery is a family and employee-owned independent business where President and CEO Michael Lalonde says everyone works hard to maintain a family-like culture. “We look at employees, whom we call ‘co-owners,’ as a whole person,” explains Lalonde. “We’ve really tried to make Deschutes Brewery a place where people can come and build a long, rewarding career through learning new skills and taking on new challenges.” The company encourages employees to engage and make a difference. “From day one we ask new hires to think about how they can improve their jobs, how they can improve their department and the company overall,” says Lalonde. The brewery sets aside a $5,000 venture fund that turns employee ideas into action, and there are a number of committees that co-owners can join to have an impact. Deschutes Brewery employs 372 individuals locally and close to 200 in other parts of the U.S., totaling 565 individuals nationally. Lalonde says the company feels honored to be recognized as the best place to work. “This is a great reflection of the legacy we’ve built here and the positive impact we’ve been able to have on the community. We are so proud of our fellow co-owners and share this award with every one of them.”  SW

The Best Place to Work (Under 50 employees) Oregrown By Magdalena Bokowa


n as little as four years, Oregrown — the cannabis dispensary turned lifestyle brand — has doubled its storefront, become its own Tumalo-based supplier and grown sizably in both community support and brand recognition. Its key to success? Unconditional belief in the staff. “We think of ourselves as one big family — helping each and every one of our staff, professionally and personally….we value every member equally,” says co-founder Aviv Hadar, who began the company in 2013 with Justin Crawn. “Oregrown prides itself on passion and talent — not necessarily college degrees.” Indeed, budtender Anna Stanton and assistant manager Aaron Pugh both rave about the inclusive culture, allowing for rapid career growth in a burgeoning industry. “If we have a creative idea, I 100 percent feel like I can share that idea with the owners,” says Pugh. “It’s a very supportive culture,” adds Stanton. Being a supplier and distributer has its advantages, and Hadar says this vertical integration means Oregrown can be a longterm landing spot for people, “where entry level positions can turn into lifelong careers in the cannabis industry,” he says. “Those that stick around enjoy being driven outside of their comfort zone and often surprise themselves with what they are capable of.” Stanton says she relishes working for a company that is, “all over the town we will live in. They’re always sponsoring different events or supporting the community — art-wise and music-wise…. It’s cool to see my boss really active in the community.”

2ND PLACE  Bend Veterinary Clinic

Chrissy Hadar, cofounder and Aviv’s wife, says that’s due to their push to destigmatize cannabis and reach out to parts of the community that might have negativity or fear toward their organization, to change their mindset. “We approach and push cannabis as a lifestyle,” Chrissy says. “A lot of our customers are really active in the outdoors, they’re part of the community, they have families, and since Oregon is such a hub for activity and adventure, the two blend really well. Instead of just selling cannabis we are selling that lifestyle, that open-minded perspective.” Pugh says newbies and veteran consumers come to Oregrown because of its “top quality cannabis — some of the best in the state and stay for the knowledgeable, friendly and yes, patient budtenders, who are happy to answer any and all questions. A lot of our patients have their favorite budtender, something like having your favorite barista.” In addition, Chrissy Hadar understands the burden of being an employer in Central Oregon, where it can be tough to find affordable housing. “It’s not lost on us. It drives us to do everything we can to take care of our staff...and we take that very seriously.” She reflects, “We treat our staff like our family and do our best to go above and beyond. I think that’s what makes this such a special place to work.”  SW Oregrown 1199 NW Wall St., Bend. 844-673-4769

Best Fitness Studio Barre3 Bend By Anne Pick


etting in the ideal workout doesn’t have to be as infrequent as the moon blocking the sun. In Bend, exercise, health and wellness come as a top priority. We love yoga, we love ballet barre, we love Pilates and we love combining all of our favorite workouts to strengthen our entire bodies. Barre3 blends the best of all of our favorite workouts to make us stronger — both inside and out. It’s no surprise that Barre3 shines brightest as Bend’s Best Fitness Studio. Rooted in the disciplines of ballet barre, yoga and Pilates, Barre3 focuses on strengthening the cores of Bendites, as well as building lean muscles and providing long-term postural benefits. While you may come to a Barre3 class decked out in yoga clothes, you’ll reap more benefits that the typical yoga class. After attending a class at Barre3, you’ll wonder where some of these muscles that feel sore even came from. Muscles in your shoulder blades, muscles in your legs, muscles on the sides of your hips. Did you even know these muscles existed? It’s the kind of sore that makes you say, “It hurts so good!”  SW Barre3 70 SW Century Dr., Bend. 541-323-2828

Best Excuse for Public Nudity


Bend’s World Naked Bike Ride By Nicole Vulcan


all it the mark of a changing Bend. Call it a load of fun, or a load of hooey, but we’re pretty sure you have an opinion about the World Naked Bike Ride that came to Bend July 8. Organizer Lief Bamberg—who’s quick to point out that he’s not from weird Portland, but from weirder Austin, Tex.—told us he planned the event to promote body positivity and human-powered transport; the same reasons others have held WNBRs worldwide for coming on two decades. Since it’s held after 8 pm, we question the people who worried about “protecting the children.” Shouldn’t your kids be in bed? And shouldn’t you be more worried about the health of the planet you’re leaving them? Lief and his compadres on the WNBR win the staff pick nod for Best Excuse for Public Nudity. BTW, here’s a rundown on ORS 163.465, Oregon’s public indecency law: “A person commits the crime of public indecency if while in, or in view of, a public place the person performs:   (a) An act of sexual intercourse;  (b) An act of deviate sexual intercourse; or  (c) An act of exposing the genitals of the person with the intent of arousing the sexual desire of the person or another person.”  Bamberg said: “If you were uncomfortable by the 15-20 naked cyclists that rode the streets, if you don’t understand why it is important to combat shame, to be vulnerable and weird in a traditional or conservative town, if you don’t understand the outlandish link between riding a bike and being nude, then join us next year.”  SW

ssssshhhh...There’s been a not-so-well kept secret in Redmond for the past 20 years. The 7th Street Brew House has some delicious eats — and mighty fine brews that keep locals coming back. “It’s definitely the Redmond version of ‘Cheers,’” begins co-owner Rick Orazetti. “Everyone knows your name at 7th Street.” As the third brewery to open in Central Oregon, the first in Redmond and the original pub for Cascade Lakes Brewery, this cozy and inviting pub has been a local’s hangout since the late ‘90s. “Redmond feels like a family,” says Orazetti. “It’s different than Bend, it’s a very low-key and grounded community.” Orazetti and Doug Kutella took over in 2000 and soon brought in Ron Kutella and Chris Justema. Their state-of-the-art, 25-barrel brewhouse system brews 775 gallons, three times a day, yet they still stay true to their core roots. “Our first hire is still with us, 17 years later,” boasts Orazetti. “We’re proud to have staff that feel like family.” Chock full of nightly specials, choose from bingo, taco nights or compete in rounds of horseshoe. There’s the usual pub fare such as creamy mac ‘n cheese and pork sandos—and then there’s the Hog Leg burger. Prepare with napkins, bring a wheelbarrow and account for a four-hour siesta to sleep off that food coma. So if you want a place, “where they’ll be glad you came, and everyone will (eventually) know your name,” well, you get the picture. Head to 7th Street Brew House. 7th Street Brew House 855 SW 7th St., Redmond 541-923-1795

hether dropping by after school for a milkshake or making a pit stop for burgers on your way home from an adventure on the McKenzie River, Sno Cap Drive In has been an institution in Sisters since 1952. Sno Cap is a must for both locals and visitors alike, not only for the quality of the food, but also because it offers the best bang for your buck in Sisters. Source readers have spoken. A mountain of fries and burgers just the way you want them... what could be better? And we’re not talking fast-food joint -sized burgers. This is the real deal: high-quality, never-frozen ground chuck. Hop in line and they’ll hand write your order the old fashioned way. Lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions and mayo all in addition to the specialty burgers you’ll find on the menu. From the best-selling, all-time favorite bacon cheeseburger to something a little hotter with the jalapeno pepper jack burger, you’ll find exactly what your taste buds crave, all at a bangin’ price point. Really looking to make your dollar go further? Sno Cap has a corn dog on the menu for under $2! And we haven’t even talked about the ice cream yet. Of course ,there are the classics — vanilla and chocolate, but then, wait a second while we amp up the anticipation — pina colada, birthday cake, Almond Joy and Cookie Monster (seriously, this one has Nutter Butter, Oreo cookie, cookie dough, chocolate chips and a caramel swirl).  SW All we can say is, YUM.

ver the last several years, the face of coffee in Sunriver has changed. The scene used to consist of a drive-thru coffee hut in the Business Park and Bellatazza across the street from the Village. Now, it includes a Starbucks and our readers’ favorite: Brewed Awakenings. When the Village underwent a massive remodel a couple years ago, in came a building designed specifically for both the traditional coffee-house atmosphere as well as a quick drive-thru experience. Having a drive-thru coffee option upon entering the Village makes for the perfect pre-adventure caffeination destination. You don’t have to get out of your car, unbuckle car seats and drag the kiddos into a coffee shop just to wake up for your day. The convenience factor alone weighs heavily on the vote for Brewed Awakenings as Best Coffee in Sunriver. More than just a drive-thru, upon entering Brewed Awakenings you’ll be greeted by comfortable sitting areas and tables, and a fireplace that’s perfect for catching up with your aunt during a family reunion. But the atmosphere alone doesn’t warrant a vote for best coffee, it’s the caffeinated beverages themselves. From cold espresso drinks such as the Belgian Latte (a vanilla latte with real caramel drizzled over the top) to hot favorites like their small batch, artisan roasted house coffee, visitors to Brewed Awakenings never have a problem getting a good caffeine buzz.  SW Brewed Awakenings Coffee Roasters The Village at Sunriver 57100 Beaver Dr., Sunriver 541-678-5288

Her love of Bend inspires her art.

As Central Oregon’s population continues to grow, so too do the opportunities for athletes. Not so long ago, however, soccer wasn’t much of a thing around these parts. Organized, competitive soccer began in the late ‘90s under the name Central Oregon Soccer Association, with parents and coaches installing the first dedicated soccer field in Bend at Ponderosa Park. The original club (under various names) was affiliated with the Oregon Rush soccer association for a number of years, before making the switch to join the alliance of Portland Timbers soccer clubs in 2013. Today, competitive soccer players have the option of joining either Cascade Rush or the Bend FC Timbers—a far cry from the one-soccer-field landscape of yore. Bilanski came onto the scene around that time—bringing some solid inspiration for what’s possible for soccer players. At the U of W, she earned single-season records for goals, assists AND points (12 goals, 6 assists and 30 points), and had a 91-99-26 win-losstie record during her 11 years of collegiate coaching, according to data from Eugene’s Register Guard. Nowadays, Bilanski says she’s focused less on winning and more on helping each player achieve their individual goals—personal or athletic. “I thought I got into coaching really to win games,” Bilanski reflects. “Now I realize that is important to me, but I





I thought I got into coaching really to win games. Now I realize that is important to me, but I just love... changing kids and changing people.

just love… changing kids and changing people.” With the sights and sounds of the Bend Premier Cup all around us while we talked, it’s clear that soccer is still a major part of her life. But does that have to mean it rubs off on her two kids? Not necessarily. “My son who’s 12… he will do anything to not come to the soccer field for mom or sister or anybody else,” Bilanski chuckles. “My daughter on the other hand, she got into the game pretty young, loves it, but has become a goalkeeper.” So what’s it like being the coach’s daughter? Bilanski’s daughter hasn’t had to find out—yet. “I’ve never coached her. I’d like to at some point in time, but I’ve wanted her to experience soccer without being the ‘principal’s’ kid,” she says. With about 450 competitive players (not counting recreational or training program players) in the club, it’s clear that the sport plays large in Central Oregon these days. “Women’s soccer has come so far in the last 20 years,” Bilanski says. “The ‘99 Women’s World Cup I think really

pushed into the American culture—and now you’ve got household names.” The Current Landscape: One Turf Field in All of Central Oregon Still, there’s more work to be done. At the moment, Central Oregon has just one turf field, at Bend’s Summit High School. To fill in the gaps, the club is in the midst of its “Build It Forward” fundraising campaign to build four turf fields—with lights—at Pine Nursery Park. Bilanski and her team aim to build two fields by 2020 and a total of four by 2025. Bend Park and Recreation District has offered the space on a $1, 30-year lease; all the club has to do is raise the funds for the fields. For Bilanski, it’s a huge priority. “You’re always going to struggle to be a legitimate club until you have your own fields,” she says. Still, what remains most important, Bilanski says, is impacting kids in a positive way. “Even though I thought I got into the game for winning and losing, I’m like, gosh, this game can teach us a lot.”  SW Bend FC Timbers 541-797-6640

Artist Profile: Sweet Pea Cole

Loving the little details of the process There’s always time for laughter— at least in Sweet Pea Cole’s area of The Workhouse. That’s where you’ll find her collaborating with fellow artists on new designs, screen printing her most recent inspiration or chatting with locals and tourists about the delights of Bend. Cole, a graphic designer and screen printer, moved into the The Workhouse (a collaborative artist space in the Old Ironworks District on Scott Street, next to Sparrow Bakery) in March of 2016, seeing her work grow

as a result of sharing the space with so many other artists. “This place gives me the energy to get past the little details of the process that have to happen first before you can get to the actual thing,” she says. These days, Cole says she enjoys those little behind-the-scene parts, which have allowed her designs to develop and grow into a larger line of pieces—including unique Bend-based designs. Incorporating her love of Bend into her work is nothing new for her, but it has flourished this summer with an array of new designs on t-shirts, notecards, badges and pouches. “My intention of these designs is to give tourists something handmade,

unique, thoughtful and special to remember their trip by,” Cole says. Find Cole’s work in The Bend Store downtown or at Wren and Wild. But to understand the joy Cole feels in sharing her work with the community, stop by during a special eclipse celebration at The Workhouse on Saturday, Aug., 19. You’ll find Cole there, laughing and sharing inspiration with anyone passing through.  SW Eclipse Weekend at The Old Iron Works Sat., Aug. 19, all day The Workhouse 50 Scott Street, Bend

entral Oregon has more than its fair share of high-achieving athletes— so in that regard, Tara Bilanski fits right in. At the University of Washington, she earned the Most Valuable Player title three times before playing professionally for FSV Frankfurt. She’s also been an assistant coach at U of W and head women’s soccer coach at Portland State University and the University of Oregon, earning the title of 2006 Pac-10 Coach of the Year and becoming U of O’s all-time winning-est coach in 2010. So what’s she doing now? Heading up a youth soccer club, of course. In a city chock-full of athletes from a multitude of disciplines, that’s not very strange at all. “After being on that side of the mountains my whole life—Puyallup, Seattle, Portland, Eugene and now here, I am like, what have I been doing for all these years?” Bilanski jokes. “I’ve got the perfect situation here—lifestyle, location, job—I’ve got it all.” I met with Bilanski over the Aug. 12-13 weekend, when the Bend FC Timbers, the club she leads as executive director, was deep in the throes of the Bend Premier Cup. As we talked, the fields at Bend’s Pine Nursery Park were abuzz as 202 teams from six states competed in the tournament that represents Bend FC Timbers’ biggest fundraiser of the year. As we finished our interview, the intensity ramped up, with the U19 girls’ team from Bend engaged in a shootout, aiming to win the title in their division. If you thought a teen girls soccer game can’t draw a raucous crowd, you’d be wrong.

Scrounge Food

What to eat in an apoc-ecliptic food crisis


By Lisa Sipe

By Lisa Sipe


Breakfast: Scrounge Cakes

You can still make pancakes when you run out of milk and eggs with this vegan recipe. If you don’t have nuts, replace them with additional flour. 1 cup all-purpose flour ¼ cup ground nuts (any kind) 2 tbsp. sugar 2 tsp. baking powder ½ tsp. salt 1 ¼ cups water 1 tbsp. oil Sift dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in oil and water until a little lumpy. Add oil to a sauté pan or griddle and heat to medium-high. Pour batter into the pan and cook until bubbles form. Flip the pancake and cook until it’s browned on both sides. Repeat until you run out of batter. If you don’t have any maple syrup, try butter and jelly, chopped apples sautéed in butter with a little sugar, or nut butter with sliced bananas.

and then didn’t use it. If you’re wondering, it’s a great pizza topping. Try this combo sometime: feta, mozzarella, mushrooms, onions and pepperoncini on pizza dough brushed with olive oil. If you’re lucky enough to have frozen cheese on hand you’ll be able to make pizza when you’re scrounging for food. Most of us won’t be this

Lunch: Scrounge Peanut Noodles

1 package ramen noodles 1-2 tbsp. peanut Butter Sriracha chili sauce (optional)

Dinner: Scrounge Beans Over Rice 1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes 1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes 2 (14 oz. each) cans chickpeas 2 tsp. olive oil 1 large onion, finely chopped 4 garlic cloves, minced ½ tsp. salt ½ tsp. ground pepper 1 1/2 tsp. oregano ¼ - ½ tsp. red pepper flakes

person; you’ll probably be more like me and be happy if you have staples such as flour, sugar, beans, rice, ramen, canned tomatoes, peanut butter, olive oil and pasta. Based on these staple items I put together a days worth of recipes you can make by scrounging food around your house.  SW

Cook the ramen per package instructions. When ready, stir in peanut butter, and if you like, add Sriracha to taste.

Grab a large pan, turn on medium heat and sauté onions in olive oil. When they get slightly transparent, add the garlic and cook for another minute. Add the tomatoes, oregano, salt, pepper and chickpeas. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Do a taste test to see if you need to add more salt or pepper. Serve over rice, quinoa or pasta, whatever you have available. If you have Parmesan cheese, it’s an excellent garnish. This recipe is a great base. Layer more flavor by sautéing the onions with bacon instead of olive oil, or even add sausage. If you’ve been gardening and are rich in zucchini, chop or grate some and toss it in when you add the tomatoes. If you aren’t a gardener, “harvest” and use frozen vegetables from your freezer.

Have you ever heard of Joel Salatin, the most famous farmer in the world? You probably have if you’ve read the Omnivore’s Dilemma or watched the documentary "Food Inc.;" He was featured in both. He’ll be speaking at Organic Earthly Delights this weekend to discuss his regenerative model of food production, a process that turns the current damaging agricultural process into one that heals the land, the food and the economy.

n case you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple months, the eclipse is happening this week, and the moon coming to block the sun has many of us wondering what will ensue. I know from interviewing the manager at Market of Choice that he’s having trouble sleeping at night because he’s not sure what’s going to happen at his store. With no prior data to look at, he’s hoping the store is prepared enough for the onslaught. If all hell does break loose and the store shelves are empty, what are we going to eat? I looked at my own pantry to see what was possible to make with what I normally have. Now was a good time to look; I really needed to go shopping. I don’t know about you, but maybe I need an apoc-ecliptic emergency to finally use a few items. I mean, I don’t even know why I have a can of sardines in mustard. Oh wait, I do remember. My partner picked it out saying it would be really good, yet he hasn’t eaten it. Now I wonder if it is delicious—but I’m not hungry enough yet to find out. I also discovered three restaurant-sized jars of pepperoncini. That was my fault; I bought it several times on accident

ust in case this is the first piece of media readers of this column have seen all year, there’s going to be a total eclipse north of Bend on Monday morning. It’s a lifetime event, the first total one the US has seen since 1979, and—this being the United States, after all—companies nationwide are seeking to cash in on it. The craft-beer business is no exception to this, and it’s probably to be expected that quite a few limited-edition releases are out now to commemorate. That’s true from the Oregon coast, to central Idaho (where Mother Earth and Payette Brewing collaborated on the LUNARtic session ale, complete with Comet and Galaxy hops), all the way to Tennessee, where Yazoo Brewing out of Nashville has the Space and Time oak-fermented wild blonde ale for Southerners who want to avoid bourbon for lunch. Residents of Central Oregon, of course, are anticipating the complete, Mad Max-style shutdown of all roads, infrastructure and general human decency before, during, and after 10:20 a.m. on Aug. 21. But at least there’s good beer around! Around Bend, North Rim Brewing is putting the most effort into the whole eclipse theme. For the first time in its history, they’ve canned a bunch of its beers—including the Blast Cap India Red Ale, Twin Citra IPA, and Fly Rock Session—all with a suitably astral motif on the label.

Joining the lineup for this 85,000can run is Moon Junky, a dark session IPA that, at 4.6 percent alcohol, won’t put too harsh a buzz on the day while ensuring your beer is as dark as the sky above. Grab the cans now at C.E. Lovejoy’s in southwest Bend, or check ‘em out at Oregon Eclipse 2017, a sold-out gathering unfolding at the Ochoco National Forest for the week around the eclipse. Also making the rounds is Chromosphere from Portland’s Ecliptic Brewing, perhaps the most appropriately-named brewery in the U.S. for this event. Another sessionable ale like Moon Junky, Chromosphere has a bit of citrus to it, thanks to the Amarillo and Cascade hops inside— and while Portland proper isn’t quite under the path of totality, Ecliptic will open its doors at 8 am on the 21st for beer, brunch, Bloodys, and a chance at a very dark morning. Yes, the eclipse’s morning visit might compromise serious drinking plans—but why not get really busy the weekend before at the Redmond Brewfest? Despite making its debut August 18-19, this festival already has 75 breweries and over 300 beers on offer, including a few (such as Milwaukie’s Pono Brewing) that didn’t make Bend Brewfest last week. It benefits Redmond Parks and Rec, among other groups—not to mention the city’s growing beer scene, one that’ll still be around after all the RVs leave and the sky goes back to normal.  SW

"The Glass Castle"

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic



ANNABELLE: CREATION: See page 115 for review. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

ATOMIC BLONDE: Charlize Theron plays a British spy hunting for a dangerous list in Berlin during the Cold War. The movie is fun and action packed and Theron is perfectly cast as a badass super spy. There are a few dumb plot mechanics and story points, but the film is ultimately worth your time. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX BABY DRIVER: Edgar Wright is the visionary

behind such modern classics as “Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz” and “The World's End.” It's been way too long since his last movie, but now we can rejoice as he brings his distinct style to a crime thriller/musical/comedy. It looks absolutely sublime. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

BAND AID: An adorable romantic-comedy musical about a bickering married couple who turn all of their biggest fights into songs and start a band. Tin Pan Theater THE BIG SICK: Based on the real-life romance of comedians Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, “The Big Sick” was one of the breakout movies of Sundance this year. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX. Sisters Movie House THE DARK TOWER: This long awaited

adaptation of Stephen King's magnum opus is not only a terrible movie in its own right, but one of the worst adaptations of an existing piece of literature ever made. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

DETROIT: From director Kathryn Bigelow, “Detroit” tells the true story of a horrifying night during the summer of '67 at the Algiers Motel. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House DUNKIRK: Christopher Nolan sets his sights

on making one of the most fiercely original war movies of all time. Told in a jumbled chronology and filled with some of the most powerful imagery of the year, “Dunkirk” is an unforgettable evening at the movies. Those with sensitive hearing may want to avoid seeing it in IMAX because it's so loud that it's like being in an actual war. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema.

THE EMOJI MOVIE: There's not supposed to

the last two years that it's almost a miracle it made it into theaters at all. Berry plays a mom chasing her young son's kidnappers all across a city while looking good doing it. This looks incredibly forgettable. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

LANDLINE: Two sisters suspect their father is having an affair in this dramedy from the filmmaking team behind the absolutely wonderful “Obvious Child.” Jenny Slate is fast becoming a national treasure, so enjoy “Landline” as another rung on the ladder to her stardom. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Tin Pan Theatre LOST IN PARIS: From the filmmaking team

behind the modern French classic, “The Fairy,” comes another delightfully eccentric comedy packed to the gills with whimsy and wonder. If life is feeling a little too real lately, “Lost in Paris” is the perfect antidote. Tin Pan Theater

MAUDIE: This is a biopic about the folk artist

Maud Lewis that focuses on her falling in love with a fishmonger while she worked as his housekeeper. Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke star in this quirky and delightful little movie. Tin Pan Theater.

THE NUT JOB 2: NUTTY BY NATURE: I'm not sure anyone was clamoring for a sequel to a mostly forgotten animated film from a few years back about a squirrel and a rat, but here we are. As great as the voice cast featuring Will Arnett, Maya Rudolph and Jackie Chan are, the last one was terrible and this one doesn't appear to be any better. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema ROUGH NIGHT: In the spirit of “Bridesmaids”

and “Very Bad Things” comes a star-studded comedy about a bachelorette party that goes horribly wrong when the women accidentally kill a male stripper. I hope they all learn a valuable lesson because male strippers are people, too, and he was probably working his way through college or something. McMenamins Old St Francis

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING: We know what you're thinking: “Another rebooted Spider-Man??” Yes, they just tried this and failed, but the difference is now Marvel Studios gets to play with him. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS: Critics can't seem to

be any bad ideas for movies, but this one might prove that little chestnut wrong. The Lego Movie sounded dumb before it came out and that movie is a damn delight, so maybe all we need to...wait... Patrick Stewart is the voice of the Poop Emoji? That is bad and they should feel bad. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

agree on this one, with some calling it a visionary work by one of our most brilliant directors and others saying it's sexist garbage. Coming from Luc Besson, the director of “The Fifth Element” and “The Professional,” can't we agree that it's probably a little bit of both? Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE GLASS CASTLE: Based on the bestselling memoir, “The Glass Castle tracks the life of a woman who was raised by broke hippies and is still having trouble adjusting to normal life as an adult. From the director of “Short Term 12,” this should be a lovely film to watch, especially with the luminous Brie Larson getting another meaty role to sink her teeth into. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX


GOING IN STYLE: A comedy/heist movie

WONDER WOMAN: Finally, a big screen adaptation of one of the most beloved superheroes in history. It's amazing that it took this long. Advanced word is that the DC Extended Universe has finally gotten it right with this one in ways they failed with “Batman Vs. Superman” and “Suicide Squad.” History has been made with this film. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

starring Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin sounds like a great time at the movies, that’s no mystery. What is a mystery, however, is why Zach Braff from “Scrubs” is directing this? Sisters’ Movie House, Redmond Cinema.

KIDNAP: Halle Berry's action thriller “Kidnap” has been pulled from release so many times over

The “final” installment to the “Planet of the Apes” prequel trilogy not only sends the series out on a high note, but also manages to be one of the best films of the year. When all is said and done, “Dawn,” “Rise” and “War” will be recognized as one of the high watermarks of speculative fiction and allegory of the last 30 years. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX


SCREEN A Post-Apocalyptic Primer, in Honor of Do you know where your pillows are?


By Jared Rasic

VOLUME 21  ISSUE 33  /  August 17, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

the Great American Eclipse

To better prepare for life after the eclipse, check out these apocalyptic thrillers.


et me get this out of the way up front: I don’t think we’re gonna die in a hail of nuclear fire from North Korea, and the eclipse is going to be over sooner rather than later. With that said, I also have some pretty good ideas for my post-apocalyptic future... just in case. I’m not good at hunting, killing things or anything requiring balance, skill or dexterity, so I’m going to become the best post-apocalyptic male companion the world has ever seen. I might be quite large and hirsute, but I have a feeling bears will do OK at the end of the world. Now you know my secret. Just in case you need your own plans for the world after the rain of fire and destruction, here are a few movies that might give you some ideas on how to deal.

Mad Max: Fury Road: We learned from the original “Mad Max” that it’s best not to become too attached to anyone. “Road Warrior” taught us the importance of storing fuel and “Thunderdome” stressed the importance of how annoying children are even when they are starving and feral. Ain’t nobody got time for that. “Fury Road” has a much more important message to impart: Always be with someone who is supernaturally good at driving. You’re probably going to be chased a lot, so make sure you become a legit incredible driver, but also make sure you travel with one too, so you can get some sleep, or in case someone eats your arms. The Road: While a very tough movie to watch, it has several teachable moments like: 1) Never trust a cannibal. No matter how close you become, you’re still just brunch to them. 2) Maybe join a roving band of marauders. You might have to do some things that are awful and will scar you for life, but it gets lonely out there. 3) Practice archery. While bringing a bow and arrow to a gunfight is not recommended, you can hunt for food without drawing attention, and quote “The Hunger Games” to make your new marauder friends laugh. Planet of the Apes: I mean, we already know the importance of wearing a loin cloth (freedom of movement, sexual chemistry with monkeys and a cool breeze when you least expect it), but the real lesson here is that just because we were once at the top of the food chain doesn’t mean we’ll always be there. If you find yourself in a position in which apes, Pomeranians or even irradiated raccoons are in control, instead of focusing on how different everything is... roll with the new paradigm. Find the slave collar that fits your personality and pray for a quick, yet elegiac death. Escape From New York: The lesson here is obvious: Avoid cities—especially ones that have become penal colonies. Obviously cities are OK if you join a band of marauders, but you’re still going to be fighting other madmen for food and sleeping in some very uncomfortable positions. I would try to have a sleeping bag and pillow with you all times. Writing your name on both (as long as language hasn’t been lost yet) will let everyone know that “While I am a friendly sort, this is my bedding and I will most certainly eat your leg if you attempt to make off with them.” Creating some rules gives everyone a sense of structure that will make the days go quicker as you wait for the radiation sickness to take you. Everyone is a winner! I hope these lessons were helpful in planning your “hypothetical” future. Goodnight and good luck. SW

Natural World - The Best of Birding

When it comes to Bests, you can’t get much better than the upcoming Great Shorebird Migration at Oregon’s only salt lake


By Jim Anderson


kestrels and rock wrens, and at sunset you can watch barn owls fly out to hunt gophers to feed their young waiting in the nests in the clefts high up on the rock face. Continuing south on Hwy. 31 will take you to Summer Lake Wildlife Management Area, operated by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. All the inland shore birds are there, including the ibis and thousands of yellow-headed blackbirds trying to out-shout their cousins, the Redwinged blackbirds. Take a drive on the patrol roads and you can fill your life list with waterfowl and shore birds galore. The Northern harrier, once known as the marsh hawk, will show off its aerodynamic skills flying just over the grasses and tulles, preying and pouncing upon voles, mice and small birds. The Great Shorebird Migration From there, proceed to Lake Abert. If you go in mid-August, you’ll be on time to see the Great Shorebird Migration. Tens of thousands of shore birds, including snowy plovers, eared grebes, Wilson’s phalaropes, rednecked phalaropes, American avocets, killdeer, northern shovelers, Whitefaced ibis, Clark’s grebes and blacknecked stilts all make an appearance. Lake Abert, aka Abert Lake, is a large, shallow salt lake in Lake County, approximately 15 miles long and 7 miles wide at its widest. The lake was named in honor of Col. John James Abert by explorer John C. Fremont

(the Pathfinder) during his 1843 expedition into Central Oregon. No fish live in the alkaline waters of the lake; however, its dense population of brine shrimp feeds all those shorebirds (and once supported a viable brine shrimp fishery). The Chewaucan River supplies water to the lake. Historical irrigation rights divert water from the river to the point where, in 2016, the lake died of thirst. This caused severe problems for the thousands of shorebirds that depend on it for food, many that fly non-stop from here to their winter homes all the way to South America. At the moment there’s a ranch at the end of the Chewaucan River, removing water that should be going to keeping the lake alive. For some unknown reason the needs of the ranch overrule the needs of the millions of birds that depend on it for their livelihood – and no one seems to care. There are many pullouts along Hwy. 395 where you can set up a tripod and scope your binoculars to view the spectacle. Or, join other birders on a field trip with East Cascades Audubon chapter. Barn Owls Don’t forget the barn owls at For. Rock on your way back to Bend, especially if it’s about sundown. Pull into the parking lot, get your camp chair(s) out and sit yourself down east of the rock face, about halfway to the irrigated hay field. Facing

the rock at about dark time, you’ll see adult barn owls coming out of their nests, flying right over you as they head out to the hay fields to begin their night of hunting. You’ll know when they’re coming back with food for the nestlings because you’ll hear the kids start hissing and calling to their parents, “Hurry, hurry! We’re starving to death!” Barn owls are white when viewed from beneath and will be easy to see as they fly by silently. You’ll know they’ve arrived at the nest when the hissing and squealing sounds come to an abrupt end; the adults are shoving gophers and mice down the owlets’ gullets. I hope you’ll make the trip to Lake Abert. This last winter sent a magnificent flow of water down the Chewaucan that has brought life back to the grand old lake. But with all the demands on water for irrigation the lake may (unfortunately) die again, and perhaps you’ll tell your children and grandchildren that you saw the last Great Shorebird Migration from Oregon’s only salt lake.  SW

he Source’s “Best of ” issue has always been a challenge for me. When it comes to birds and birding, there are so many birds and so many wonderful places to go birding in and around Central Oregon, I simply can’t decide what to call the “best” trip. There are the warblers along the Deschutes River, the waterfowl on the high lakes, and Crane Prairie Reservoir for bald eagles and osprey, to name a few. The wonderful diversity in the forests provides habitat for accipiters; Cooper’s hawks and bold goshawks are a great drawing card. But, going out on the desert and rim rocks of the sagebrush sea will also give you sage grouse, lots of sparrows, the western meadowlark—the Oregon state bird, falcons and golden eagles. For me though, I go to Summer Lake Wildlife Management Area as often as I can and then, in late summer, on to Lake Abert—Oregon’s only salt lake. Leaving Bend, head south on Hwy. 97, then switch to Hwy. 31, south of La Pine. As you head down the old Horse Ranch grade, the magnificent image of Fort Rock comes into view. Fort Rock Fort Rock is an ancient maar (mud volcano) that stands tall on the bed of an ice age lake, at one time covering the land from where the pine forest ends today all the way out to Highway 395.

Real Estate Statistics for July 2017


$229 for July 2017, and up from $191 in July 2016. Sales for July were mainly among the low and middle price points. The largest share of homes sold were in the $100,000 to $400,000 price range, comprising about 48 percent of total home sales, followed by the $400,000-$600,000 range at 35 percent. The remaining home sales for the higher end of the market comprised about 17 percent. Building permits issued increased from 66 in July 2016 to 80 in July 2017, and inventory levels continue to remain tight. Most industry analysts feel that a four to six month inventory level is needed for a balanced market that favors neither buyers nor sellers. Most of these analysts are also saying that new construction is not keeping up with housing demand.

When my husband comes home from a stressful day at work, he likes to play shoot-‘em-up games on his phone. He says it relaxes him. I’d like to connect and talk before he goes into his mental man cave. Also, when he’s into a game, it’s annoying even to ask what he wants for dinner. Your advice? — Gaming Widow A stressed-out woman wants to talk about her feelings; a stressed-out man wants to gun down 87 slobbering zombies on his phone in hopes that his feelings get bored with him and go away. It turns out that in dealing with emotional stress, men and women have some different neurochemical overlords. If men’s had a name, it would be The Earl of Overkill, which is to say men tend to react neurochemically to social stress as they would to being chased through the woods by a maniac with a crossbow. First, there’s a surge of epinephrine and norepinephrine, neuro-messengers (aka neurotransmitters) that are the bandleaders of the brain’s “fight or flight” reaction. These kick off survival-promoting changes in the body, like the heart beating faster, the release of the energy-mobilizing stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol, and blood coursing to the arms and legs (all the better to punch or run!). Meanwhile, systems not needed to fight back or scram — like digestion and higher reasoning — get powered down. Yep. That’s right. Higher reasoning goes all lights out; nobody’s home. So trying to “connect and talk” with a stressed-out man is like trying to have an existential debate with a vacant warehouse. It’s even worse from the man’s end. He’s gotten chemically and otherwise physiologically mobilized to bolt or do battle. But when there’s no crossbow-wielding dude to run from — just a bunch of social stress — there’s no use for all of these bodily resources that have been mustered up. Psychologist John Gottman calls the effect from this “flooding,” explaining that men feel very physically uncomfortable and get extremely frustrated that their access to the brain’s departments of insight and witty bits is blocked. Not surprisingly, what makes them feel better is mentally checking out until these uncomfortable feelings go away — uh, in lieu of access to a zookeeper’s tranq gun to shoot themselves in the thigh. Unfortunately, the thing that makes men feel better is in direct conflict with

what works for women. Psychologist Shelley Taylor finds that women’s reaction to emotional stress is mediated by oxytocin, a neurotransmitter that facilitates emotional bonding. This leads to what she calls a “tend and befriend” response: self-soothing through caring for and emotionally engaging with others. In other words, women tend to deal with emotional stress monsters by gabbing them down to size. But, good news. You can have what you need if you just wait for your husband to have what he needs: time to calm down and reset so his brain’s higher reasoning center is no longer in “Hello, my name is Cinderblock!” mode. Decide together how much time that needs to be — half an hour, maybe? After that, he should put down the flamethrower and “advance to the next level”: spokenAmy Alkon word communication, and not just the sort where you ask him, “Is that ‘mmmph’ to steak or ‘mmmph’ you just ended World War III and saved the galaxy from Nazi zombies?”

Little Photoshop Of Halos Though the guy I broke up with recently was, ultimately, a pothead with zero ambition, I can’t stop thinking about all the sweet moments. This feels better in the moment but just keeps me pining. How can I have a more balanced mental picture? —Selective Nostalgia Nostalgia is like crime-scene cleanup for your head: “My, what lovely new tiles. You’d hardly know there was once a triple murder in this kitchen.” We’ve got tons of information back in storage in our long-term memory (picture rows of shelves and old steel file cabinets going on for, like, forever). However, we can only bring out and reflect on a few pieces of information at a time — probably four, according to memory researcher Nelson Cowan. Predictably, we gravitate to memories of ourselves as, say, a beloved partner who made smart choices — as opposed to one who jumped in without looking and then upcycled the growing pile of red flags into dog beds to sell on Etsy. You need a virtual drone cam to help you see the whole landscape at once, and it’s called “an index card.” On it, list all the bummer stuff about your ex that you need to keep in mind. Maybe save a photo of it on your phone. This should help you keep those pesky upsides in perspective, like how he was always so attentive to detail — if that’s what you’d call smoking tons of pot and spending several hours monitoring the hair on his left arm.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 43 cartoon

set them free,” said New Age author Richard Bach. “If they come back, they’re yours; if they don’t, they never were.” By using my well-educated intellect to transmute this hippy-dippy thought into practical advice, I came up with a wise strategy for you to consider as you re-evaluate your relationships with allies. Try this: Temporarily suspend any compulsion you might have to change or fix these people; do your best to like them and even love them exactly as they are. Ironically, granting them this freedom to be themselves may motivate them to modify, or at least tone down, the very behavior in themselves that you’re semi-allergic to.

stories, the coyote named Wile E. Coyote has tried to kill and devour the swift-running flightless bird known as the Road Runner. Every single time, Wile E. has failed to achieve his goal. It’s apparent to astute observers that his lack of success is partly due to the fact that he doesn’t rely on his natural predatory instincts. Instead, he concocts elaborate, overly-complicated schemes. In one episode, he camouflages himself as a cactus, buys artificial lightning bolts, and tries to shoot himself from a bow as if he were an arrow. All these plans end badly. The moral of the story, as far as you’re concerned: To reach your next goal, trust your instincts.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In 1892, workers began building the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York. But as of August 2017, it is still under construction. Renovation has been and continues to be extensive. At one point in its history, designers even changed its architectural style from Neo-Byzantine and Neo-Romanesque to Gothic Revival. I hope this serves as a pep talk in the coming weeks, which will be an excellent time to evaluate your own progress, Virgo. As you keep toiling away in behalf of your dreams, there’s no rush. In fact, my sense is that you’re proceeding at precisely the right rate.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You temporarily have cosmic permission to loiter and goof off and shirk your duties. To be a lazy bum and meander aimlessly and avoid tough decisions. To sing offkey and draw stick figures and write bad poems. To run slowly and flirt awkwardly and dress like a slob. Take advantage of this opportunity, because it’s only available for a limited time. It’s equivalent to pushing the reset button. It’s meant to re-establish your default settings. But don’t worry about that now. Simply enjoy the break in the action.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In accordance with the astrological omens, I hereby declare the next two weeks to be your own personal Amnesty Holiday. To celebrate, ask for and dole out forgiveness. Purge and flush away any non-essential guilt and remorse that are festering inside you. If there truly are hurtful sins that you still haven’t atoned for, make a grand effort to atone for them — with gifts and heart-felt messages if necessary. At the same time, I urge you to identify accusations that others have wrongly projected onto you and that you have carried around as a burden even though they are not accurate or fair. Expunge them.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): How many countries has the United States bombed since the end of World War II? Twenty-five, to be exact. But if America’s intention has been to prod these nations into forming more free and egalitarian governments, the efforts have been mostly fruitless. Few of the attacked nations have become substantially more democratic. I suggest you regard this as a valuable lesson to apply to your own life in the coming weeks, Scorpio. Metaphorical bombing campaigns wouldn’t accomplish even 10 percent of your goals, and would also be expensive in more ways than one. So I recommend using the “killing with kindness” approach. Be wily and generous. Cloak your coaxing in compassion.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You know about the Ten Commandments, a code of ethics and behavior that’s central to Christianity and Judaism. You may not be familiar with my Ten Suggestions, which begin with “Thou Shall Not Bore God” and “Thou Shall Not Bore Thyself.” Then there are the Ten Indian Commandments proposed by the Bird Clan of East Central Alabama. They include “Give assistance and kindness whenever needed” and “Look after the well-being of your mind and body.” I bring these to your attention, Sagittarius, because now is an excellent time to formally formulate and declare your own covenant with life. What are the essential principles that guide you to the highest good?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Here’s a definition of “fantasizing” as articulated by writer Jon Carroll. It’s “a sort of ‘in-brain’ television, where individuals create their own ‘shows’ — imaginary narratives that may or may not include real people.” As you Capricorns enter the High Fantasy Season, you might enjoy this amusing way of describing the activity that you should cultivate and intensify. Would you consider cutting back on your consumption of movies and TV shows? That might inspire you to devote more time and energy to watching the stories you can generate in your mind’s eye.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “If you love someone,

ARIES (March 21-April 19): “To disobey in order to take action is the byword of all creative spirits,” said philosopher Gaston Bachelard. This mischievous advice is perfect for your use right now, Aries. I believe you’ll thrive through the practice of ingenious rebellion — never in service to your pride, but always to feed your soul’s lust for deeper, wilder life. Here’s more from Bachelard: “Autonomy comes through many small disobediences, at once clever, well thought-out, and patiently pursued, so subtle at times as to avoid punishment entirely.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Congratulations! I expect that during the next three weeks, you will be immune to what psychoanalyst Joan Chodorow calls “the void of sadness, the abyss of fear, the chaos of anger, and the alienation of contempt and shame.” I realize that what I just said might sound like an exaggeration. Aren’t all of us subject to regular encounters with those states? How could you possibly go so long without brushing up against them? I stand by my prediction, and push even further. For at least the next three weeks, I suspect you will also be available for an inordinate amount of what Chodorow calls “the light of focused insight” and “the playful, blissful, all-embracing experience of joy.”


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The coming days would an excellent time to celebrate (even brag about) the amusing idiosyncrasies and endearing quirks that make you lovable. To get you inspired, read this testimony from my triple Gemini friend Alyssa: “I have beauty marks that form the constellation Pegasus on my belly. I own my own ant farm. I’m a champion laugher. I teach sign language to squirrels. Late at night when I’m horny and overtired I may channel the spirit of a lion goddess named Sekhmet. I can whistle the national anthems of eight different countries. I collect spoons from the future. I can play the piano with my nose and my toes. I have forever banished the green-eyed monster to my closet.”

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your education may take unusual forms during the coming weeks. For example, you could receive crunchy lessons from velvety sources, or tender instructions from exacting challenges. Your curiosity might expand to enormous proportions in the face of a noble and elegant tease. And chances are good that you’ll find a new teacher in an unlikely setting, or be prodded and tricked into asking crucial questions you’ve been neglecting to ask. Even if you haven’t been particularly street smart up until now, Cancerian, I bet your ability to learn from uncategorizable experiences will blossom.

recent column, “Scenarios for Cannabis under Trump,” a topic which has been explored by my far smarter canna-lawyer colleagues, has already grown outdated. That’s because the cannabis policy undertaken by Attorney General Klu Klux Keebler is perfectly in line with the various national “policies” set forth by Fake Tan Hitler. Both are unhinged, unpredictable, based on private gain and racist beliefs, and seek to promote the most heinous of suffering from our most vulnerable populations. (To counterbalance the infuriating nature of this week’s column, here’s a joke: Q: Where do Mansplainers get their water? A: From a “Well, actually…”.) What’s Lil’ Jeffy been up to since we last checked in? I’m so glad you asked. In May, he sent a letter to Congress, asking them to help end a bipartisan amendment that protects medical cannabis programs from prosecution by federal authorities. Known this year as the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer amendment (mad congressional respect, Oregon!), Sessions sent a letter to Senators Pelosi, McConnell, Ryan and Schumer strongly urging them to come to the dark side with him. In late July, lawmakers replied to Sessions by letting him know that, it being the end of the fiscal year, the House and Senate had allocated all their 2017 eff-yous, and thus having no effs left to give, provided him with a rebuke by Pat Lehey (D-VT), who said in part: “29 states and the District of Columbia have decided it’s more humane to regulate medical marijuana than to criminalize it. Almost every state—46 right now, and counting—regulate the use of a marijuana derivative that is used to treat epilepsy and other rare medical conditions... The federal government can’t investigate everything. And shouldn’t. And I don’t want them spending money pursuing medical marijuana patients who are following state law…” Earlier that month, Sessions announced plans to “issue a new directive for asset forfeiture— especially drug traffickers.” As I’ve explored before, asset forfeiture is a super neat thing by which law enforcement can take any and everything you own, including all your cash, if they think it’s related to profits from a drug crime. Is growing cannabis for the recreational market, or selling said cannabis at a recreational dispensary, a crime? We may get to

find out soon, and I’m sure it will end well. In response to Sessions forming a task force in February to examine drug trafficking, immigration and violent crime, Oregon and Colorado prepared lengthy reports for the Justice Department showing how they were tackling issues of concern (including seed-to-sale tracking, oversupply, public safety and other matters of concern), reminding them that tremendous tax revenue was being generated, while there had been virtually no uptick in public safety and health issues. Since being a flaccid racist wasn’t filling up enough of his free time, Sessions responded with letters to the governors and attorney generals of several states with recreational cannabis programs, including Oregon and Washington. It used outdated and false data about the evils of jazz tobacco, and some dubious claims that cannabis from Washington had been found “destined for 43 states” (Of course, that means nothing, similar to anyone who has been “destined” to leave their couch for an evening out, but did not find themselves “delivered” to said outing.) In late July, the task force forwarded its recommendations, but with this being an open, transparent democracy, the Justice Department promptly explained that it would not be revealing what the report says. Mind you, this is all occurring as the country hits ever-increasing, record-breaking support in polls for allowing access to medical cannabis if their doctor prescribes it (94 percent), and 60 percent support “that the use of marijuana should be made legal in the U.S.” So… Sessions wants to shut down medical and recreational cannabis programs. Congress isn’t so keen to help him, but the Justice Department only needs so much in the way of cooperation from them to do so. This entire administration is so batshit crazy. I no longer have any projections or predictions—except that Jeff Sessions is going to hell, even if it means the universe needs to create one for him.
