Bend needs unifying mayor In May, voters in Bend cast their ballots in favor of allowing the electorate— as opposed to fellow city councilors—to name the city’s mayor. We wrote in favor of this change on multiple occasions. It’s one “mission accomplished”—but it appears more clarification is needed as the city navigates what that change means for residents, city staff, the city council and the new mayor. When voters approved that change to the city charter, it was not a sweeping change that would see the city’s leadership structure changing significantly. The changes voters voted in favor of would not see the new mayor being allowed any new powers, beyond what he or she will wield as a member of the Bend City Council. In short, the new mayor will serve as a figurehead—but even in that, there are nuances that we hope the current candidates for mayor fully understand. First and foremost, we need a mayor who works well with others—who understands the vital role that city staffers play in establishing, maintaining and visioning for the future of Bend. City staffers hold degrees in urban planning, engineering, accounting and other areas of expertise required in a growing city—areas councilors don’t necessarily specialize in. The mayor and councilors should respect and adhere to that expertise. Of course, we also expect the new mayor to be informed of the issues and to have thought through the consequences of policy decisions before they speak publicly about changing policy. They should be informed about the issues the city faces, but they should not expect to run the city like a dictator from on high. The mayor should have a pulpit to raise issues and to offer solutions, but then to work collaboratively with city staff, the city manager and others to solve those issues. We are not looking for a mayor who

will be divisive, but one who reflects and shares the values of this community. In attending the first mayoral debate, hosted by the Bend Chamber of Commerce last week, we feel that the candidates who presented there mostly understand the role of mayor as it stands now. As the campaign season moves forward, we hope candidates will continue to raise issues, and offer strong solutions to those issues— without descending into condescending language or behavior for the people who will carry out that vision, and without a divisive, vitriolic tone that can alienate one side of an issue from another.

Boddie’s behavior shows a lack of commitment to the district As we prepare for the November election and we begin to schedule our endorsement interviews, it’s become glaringly obvious that Nathan Boddie lacks a true care for District 54—the district for which he currently holds the Democratic nomination. We reached out to Boddie yet again this week to ask about his campaign and received no response. In the past, Boddie or a member of his campaign has been quick to respond. According to reports from other news outlets, a lack of response has been Boddie’s only response since he issued a statement that effectively aimed to turn the tables on a local woman who accused him of sexual misconduct. Were Boddie truly committed to District 54 and to achieving the best possible outcomes for the district in the Oregon House, he would step aside before the election filing deadline passes. The last day for him to withdraw for the race is Aug. 31— but the last day for someone else to file in the race is Aug. 28. Boddie is very unlikely to win this race, and we assume he fully knows that. Were he the statesman he’s claimed to be, he would do what’s best for the district and let someone else run. SW

Recently signs and fencing went up keeping dogs out of the canals and pond featured at the Big Sky off leash dog park. I called Bend Parks and Rec to get the lowdown, and apparently COID requested the measure. I asked if there had been an incident of water contamination, and was told there had not been such. The water was in the Deschutes River before it got into the canals, and many humans and animals are utilizing it before it’s piped for irrigation. Consequently, I’m wondering what prompted this, and what the reasoning behind the change is? Can man’s best friend really be such an issue for a fairly rapidly flowing section of canal used for crop irrigation? —Jeff Johnston

River equation. River water does “put food on the table” when applied to farmland, but it quite literally puts food on the table when allowed to flow through its natural channel, creating ample habitat for a sustainable catch of fish. What that catch amounts to is very much related to how much cold, clean water is allowed to stay in the river. Downstream of the canal diversions, it’s less than 10 percent of the natural flow. Seeing century-old photographs (taken by my farming ancestors) of the catches of fish once abundant in this now degraded stretch of river, I can tell you

As long as we’re valuing things in economic terms, an often-overlooked stakeholder, the working-class fisher, should be figured into the Deschutes

it used to be quite productive, as clean as and more continuously flowing than the Metolius. The difference between the economic benefits of river water in canals versus the economic benefits of river water in rivers is a difference between the economic benefits to landowners versus economic benefits to the general public. As degraded as the Middle Deschutes is now, it still provides a vital source of protein to some working-class families within bike riding distance of the river. With more water it could provide more, and more tourism dollars besides. The whitewater from Bend to Lake Billy Chinook could once again be the most exciting summer run in the state, and the native bull trout and red bands could return. There are programs already in place helping farmers switch to groundwater-based irrigation, and other solutions, such as pressurizing the entire north unit system, have already been discussed. I know that times have changed, eating fish you’ve

tortured has fallen out of fashion, as have working class-families and preserving open space, but I hope that the voice of those often too busy to have a voice is heard when considering any changes to our mighty Deschutes. —Tim Freeman


Tim: Thanks for making that point—to which I might also add that fishing has a historical context that goes back even further, being a major food source for the native people of this region for centuries. Sigh. Come on in for your gift card to Palate! — Nicole Vulcan, Editor

Mayor Debate

Bend’s first-ever mayoral race kicks off with a debate involving four candidates By Nicole Vulcan

Joshua Langlais



Bill Moseley Sally Russell Brian Douglass Charles Baer

In May, residents of Bend voted in favor of electing a directly elected mayor—a shift from the previous process of allowing Bend city councilors to name a mayor from sitting city councilors. The deadline to turn in the necessary signatures in order to appear on the November ballot in the mayor’s race is Aug. 28—but ahead of that deadline, the Bend Chamber of Commerce held Bend’s first-ever mayoral debate Aug. 14 at 10 Barrel East. Four candidates participated, including City Councilors Bill Moseley and Sally Russell, as well as Brian Douglass and Charles Baer. Below are excerpts of some of the questions moderators asked. Responses have been edited for brevity, while also attempting to maintain the spirit of each candidate’s questions. To see candidates’ full responses, see the online version of this story at


: Tourism has been lifting Bend’s economy through the recession and rebound, but the fiscal year 2018 budget for Visit Bend is expected to be a 9 percent decrease from 2017. Currently, TRT (transient room tax) accounts for 13 percent of the city’s general fund—funding for police and fire.

How much of the city’s budget should be focused on tourism and marketing compared to past years, and why? Charles Baer: The answer would be less. And the reason would be, people know Bend is a great place to be, everybody wants to come here, we don’t need to say, hey, Bend’s great—everybody

already knows it. We don’t need more people coming to Bend; we’ve got enough people coming to Bend. Bill Moseley: I’ve taken on this issue courageously, really. There’s a lot of people in our community that really need tourism as part of their jobs and the local economy. 2017 was actually a record high because of the eclipse that was occurring, so the numbers were a lot higher than they’re going to be, if you level out over a period of years it’s still growing. And currently, right now, 10 percent of our housing is actually taken up in the form of second homes or short-term rentals—10 percent in a community that is suffering a housing crisis. When our housing costs are going up and up and up, we’re continuing to use more of our valuable housing stock for tourism. On top of that, we have a 3.9 percent unemployment. And I can

tell you as a business owner, it’s hard to find people to grow my company, you just almost can’t do it right now, and the last thing we need is a creation of lowwage jobs in our community and that’s what tourism brings. I don’t think we can just step off a cliff, I think we need to make a gradual transition, but I think the transition for Bend involves going to higher-wage jobs and an economy not focused so exclusively on tourism. Brian Douglass: I think that we need to take a serious look at how much more we’re going to spend on tourism and I think Charles is putting that out, people are coming to Bend because people want to come to Bend, I don’t think we need to spend a lot of money to continue to promote that. I realize that the law requires so much of the money that comes in from TRT to be devoted to city services and tourism promotion, but I think we need to take a serious look and say I think we’ve got enough money going toward tourism promotion that I think we have a lot of other issues, housing, as councilor said is critical, affordable housing as well… a whole series of things. Sally Russell: I think it’s also really important to know that there are really strict laws around how we use our TRT dollars, and 65 percent of the tourism tax dollars go directly into our general fund, and another 4 percent go directly to police and fire. And most of the general fund goes to police and fire. So we have a really important revenue stream and we need to be really careful about what we do with it. On top of that, we’re really, really constrained by the laws that are on the books today, which we’ve tried really hard to shift, but it’s hard…

done a lot of the basic groundwork that needs to be done. Sally Russell: I think it’s really important to clarify that what our community voted on—decided to move forward with—was an elected mayor. They did not decide to change the structure of our council-staff relationships… so I not only look forward to a really healthy relationship with our staff but to making sure that when I work with the council, make sure that we can give our staff really good policy direction and to figure out the budget where they can implement our policy and our priorities around the city. I also think it’s really important that the role of mayor not only has to do with working well with our staff and bringing our council together, and soliciting feedback from our community, but also being the emissary throughout the state. Charles Baer: The staff goes a great job and they’re kind of in the background, I would try to bring them more to the forefront. Eric King is an excellent city manager, the results speak for themselves, and I would try to have him out more in front, more in public, because he really is pulling a lot of the strings and he’s doing a great job, so I think I would try to increase the staff’s presence and ability to communicate with the rest of the people instead of just keeping them behind the scenes. Bill Moseley: There’s policy disputes with a staff member or whatever that happens on a council, but unequivocally we have a fine staff. We need to really learn most of all how we can really support our staff effectively. When I first joined council the process we went through to set goals was, we spent the money, and then we were interviewed to ask what kind of projects we wanted to do, and then we gave those through a consultant… the third thing we did was we met for two days and said which one of our projects had majority support, and then the third thing we did was we said let’s put those items, let’s put a header on it and call them goals. So we spent the money, we made the plan and then we set the goals. Council needs to be clearer than that. We need to start— if we want the staff to be effective—we have to set a strategic plan, we have to make a plan—or set goals, make a plan, and then allocate the resources. And I think our staff will support it, if council can be clear on what we want to do. See the full responses to these questions at SW

The deadline to turn in the necessary signatures in order to appear on the November ballot in the mayor’s race is Aug. 28.


: Obviously the relationship of the new mayor position to the rest of the City Council will probably get a lot of scrutiny but there are a lot of city staffers who will also be dealing with this new position for the first time as well. What do you see as the relationship between the mayor and the staff? Brian Douglass: The first thing I think everybody realizes is that the first day in office I plan to sit down with Eric King and have a conversation with him about how we’re going to move from a strong city manager city government to a strong mayoral management of the city. It’s going to be an interesting transition for the first time, for the first four years, which I hope to be able to lay the groundwork so the second time, the second mayor comes, that we will have

another solution out there that hasn’t been considered? Brian Douglass: I want to tell you first of all on Mirror Pond dredging no city money needs to be spent and can be spent. The city doesn’t have the money to put a million dollars into that project. The other partners either don’t want to or they have the money but they’re not going to do that. I believe that there is a solution to Mirror Pond dredging. It’s called the formation of a private, Local Improvement District that can be set up by boundary. Sally Russell: I think the funding is really an issue for our community—I mean, you know, why put—$2 million is what it takes every year to fill our potholes, and they’re looking for $6 million, so how are we going to get there? I don’t know the answer yet, but I’m hoping that at some point we find a funding stream and we can get this work done. Charles Baer: If we don’t do anything with Mirror Pond it’s eventually going to turn into a marsh. That being said, Plan A, I think most people agree with me, is to leave it alone. It’s an iconic part of our city. Now, Plan B, blow up the dam and let the river run wild. And the new land that is created, half of it lawn—part of Drake Park, half of it community garden. Try that for a couple years, if we like it, great, if we don’t like it, dredge it when it’s dry. If you dredge it when it’s dry it will be way easier, and cheaper. And, do it in the winter, OK, not the summer. And that’s it. Bill Moseley: Mirror Pond is essentially a recreational facility, and the real issue here really isn’t about whether we need to dredge and who pays for it. We need to ask the Bend Parks and Rec District to play fair. They need to play fair with the citizens of Bend. They have a budget that’s actually equal to the entire budget that Bend spends on police, fire, street preservation… virtually every city service that we do, and they can’t come up with the money to maintain a recreational facility.

of 200 feet. Zones like that one are known as perched aquifers—a localized area with subsurface water shallower than the regional water table. In a perched aquifer scenario, the water store is unlikely to be connected to the groundwater system and is therefore not receiving a natural recharge. Its contents should be finite and unchanged, with the exception of someone drawing from their well. “We know wells on Rogers Road are fed by irrigation leakage [carry water] because they increase in available water when irrigation gets turned on seasonally,” explained Wick.  If a residential well isn’t affected by a geologic anomaly and is connected to the water table, Wick says the recharge rate is 4,000 cubic feet per second. “Physically there is a lot of groundwater available, but politically there is not. Remember, there is a big difference between groundwater and surface water,” states Wick.  According to a United States Geological Survey analysis of groundwater level changes in the Upper Deschutes Basin from 1997 to 2008, climate variations have the greatest influence on groundwater levels throughout the basin.  “Impacts from pumping and canal lining also contribute but are largely restricted to the central part of the basin that extends north from near Benham Falls to Lower Bridge, and east from Sisters to the community of Powell Butte. Outside of this central area,

the water-level response from changes in pumping and irrigation canal leakage cannot be discerned from the larger response to climate-driven changes in recharge. Within this central area, where measured water-level declines have generally ranged from about 5 to 14 feet since the mid-1990s, climate variations are still the dominant factor influencing groundwater levels, accounting for approximately 60–70 percent of the measured declines,” the analysis states. However, can findings from a regional water table study be applied to an isolated geologic anomaly, like a perched aquifer? To that question, Camarata poses two more questions: “If one lived next to a canal or ditch and could prove that the groundwater levels of their well fluctuated with the seasonal flows of the canals, how would one really feel about drinking that untreated river water?” In addition, he says,  “What if it turns out that piping the canals and using some of that conserved water to recharge the river, in turn recharged the wells?” After extending 400 feet of piping, plumbing fees and setting up a meter, the homeowner with the alleged dried up well paid $12,000 to hook up to the Avion grid. “If you can’t hook up to Avion, you have to drill deeper or an entirely new well, which is risky and could be upwards of $45,000,” notes the homeowner.  SW

Honesty and Craft

Brandi Carlile tours in support of her sixth studio album—one that ponders motherhood and much more By Davd Gil de Rubio Alyssa Gafkjenh

Brandi Carlile plays favorites and new tunes—and even brings in a string quartet—for her show at Les Schwab Saturday.

welcomed their second child earlier this year) with matter-of-fact couplets in the hypnotically acoustic tune, “The Mother,� that include, “The first thing she took from me was selfishness and sleep/She broke a thousand heirlooms I was never meant to keep/She filled my life with color, canceled plans and trashed my car/But none of that was ever who we are.� Elsewhere, she opens with, “Every Time I Hear That Song,� a story of forgiveness to an ex-lover wrapped in layered harmonies and subtle French horn, and “Sugartooth,� a nod to a real-life troubled friend of the band who grappled with addiction. Driven by pounding piano and Carlile’s plaintive wailing, its Dylan-esque narrative is what Carlile calls, “...Tim’s opus and the best lyrics he’s ever written.�   Add in the rich orchestration of the late Paul Buckmaster and what you have is a recording that hits you square in the heart and the head. 

 “Over the years, I have 10 Paul Buckmaster arrangements and he was a real important influence on my life and a good friend,� Carlile said. “It’s unbelievable when he died because it didn’t seem at all like he was running out of time when we were working on this album.� The empathy that reverberates through Carlile’s music also translates to the real world via her Looking Out Foundation. Founded in 2008 by Carlile and the Hanseroths, the nonprofit fund supports causes and organizations that often go unnoticed, with $1 from every concert ticket sold going toward these efforts. Among the causes that have benefited over the years are WhyHunger, the women’s self-defense movement Fight the Fear and most recently, War Child, a charity that helps children of warfare. As grand as “I Forgive You� sounds through speakers and/or headphones, Carlile promises more of the same for those venturing out to see her in a live setting, including her appearance Saturday at Les Schwab Amphitheater. “It’ll be different than anyone who’s seen me before. I’m doing a much longer set—I’m doing the entire album with a lot of other songs, too—a lot of stuff from ‘Give Up the Ghost,’ ‘Bear Creek’ (her 2012 album) and one or two from ‘Brandi Carlile’ (her 2005 debut) and ‘The Story,’� she explained. “Less from ‘The Story’ than ever because I just did ‘The Story’ tour. I’ve also got a couple of new covers—Elton John and Led Zeppelin. I’m bringing a string quartet, a new drummer, a French horn and a pianist. It’s going to be a big, refined and sophisticated show, but I’m still going to drink whiskey and lose my mind, so it’ll be great.�  SW Brandi Carlile with Jade Bird Sat., Aug. 25. 6:30pm Les Schwab Amphitheater 344 SW Shevlin Hixon Dr., Bend $45/$75

n a day and age when artists spawned by YouTube and reality show competitions are here today and gone tomorrow, Brandi Carlile represents a throwback to an era when truly gifted musicians achieved a level of respected longevity. With the recent release of “By the Way, I Forgive You,� Carlile’s sixth studio outing, she’s firmly established quite the creative foothold. Produced by the tandem of Americana guru Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, these 10 songs are less about artifice and more about honesty and craft—something that’s in short supply on the pop charts nowadays.  And while Carlile’s career path has found the Washington state native working with the likes of T-Bone Burnett and Rick Rubin on albums and landing on then-President Barack Obama’s Spotify playlist, she remains remarkably grounded and humble. So much so that she unfailingly shares the credit for her success with Tim and Phil Hanseroth, Carlile’s identical twin bandmates who have been her ride-ordies from day one.  “We met when I was just at the end of being a teenager and we were playing music and singing together. They were in other bands and they had a band that was signed and dropped, and I was doing a lot of solo stuff, but I had been playing on and off with other bands too. I proposed in a really over-the-top way that we quit everything else and totally focus on each other. I swore that I would get us a record deal and I sold all my microphones and I bought Tim an EBow. I said we should quit everything and I don’t know why (they agreed), because they were adult men, but they did,� she laughingly recalled. “We made a pact right then and there that everything would be equal three ways, no matter what. And it always has been and it’s really, really worked for us as a band and for me personally.�   Earnestness and raw emotion infuse Carlile’s latest opus. She lovingly shares the day-to-day parenting challenges she shares with wife, Catherine Shepherd, as the mothers of daughter Evangeline (the couple

‘Curious’ is brilliant coming-of-age theater A play with a main character on the autism spectrum prompts Cascades Theatre to host a “sensory friendly” version of the show By Elizabeth Warnimont Arton Photography

Ed (Craig Brauner) tries to communicate with Christopher (Spencer Johnson, seated).

express his responses to stimulation and also the way he processes information.” Beltran feels it was important to preserve the design elements of the original London production, even though to do so involved educating herself about autistic personality and a great deal of special choreography and technology. “But for anyone familiar with the original, it would be a disappointment if it wasn’t recreated. What’s really cool is that we create it through resourcefulness, as opposed to an endlessly large budget.” While autism is a unifying theme of the story, it’s not all about the behavioral disorder. “The whole physicality and the technology is an expression of Christopher’s perspective, and yet it celebrates the way different people (in general) perceive information. It’s a very relatable coming-of-age story for really any teen who discovers that he needs to break out on his own and not be dependent on adults.” Beltran says the most obvious theme of the play is celebrating difference, but she adds, “maybe less famously, it’s really embracing those families that deal with having a child who is different from what we call ‘normal.’” Christopher has difficulty interacting with humans, but he has no problem relating to animals. He adores

his pet rat, for example, and is deeply affected by the sudden death of his neighbor’s dog. His struggles with communication may hamper his efforts to solve the mystery of the dog’s demise, but his special genius with mathematics and logic enable Christopher to ultimately uncover the culprit. Along the way, he learns a few new tricks for relating with people. Note: The Sunday, Sept. 2 performance will be sensory friendly, designed to accommodate individuals who are on the autism spectrum and have sensory processing disorders. The performance is open to all and will involve ASL interpreters as well as minimal sound, light and projection cues. Lights will remain on during the performance. Artwork by youth on the autism spectrum will also be on display in the theater lobby.  SW “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”

he Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” is a personal, scientific and visual masterpiece of dramatic theater. The play, opening Friday at the Cascades Theatre, intrigues with choreography and visual effects, while also enlightening with its words. “Curious” is the coming-of-age story of 12-year-old amateur detective Christopher Boone. While his condition is not specified, it’s apparent Christopher is somewhere on the autism spectrum. The play explores the boy’s response after a neighborhood dog is found murdered in his neighborhood, and how he goes about following an almost instinctual urge to solve the crime. The production wowed critics when it opened in London in 2013, eventually tying “Matilda” (2012) for a record seven Olivier awards, including Best New Play. “It’s incredibly physical and incredibly technical,” Director Hilda Beltran says of the special challenges inherent in the production. “The original Tony Award-winning and National Theater productions were choreographed by a group called Frantic Assembly. They’re known for working with the body, ensemble choreography. It’s movement-oriented expression, a metaphysical expression of (Christopher’s) connection with the world, physicalizing and visualizing his thoughts.” An ensemble of shadow actors occasionally accompanies the main character, in order to convey with movement how Christopher’s mind works. Animated, projected backgrounds add to the multi-media enhancement of the character. The play also includes a narrator reading Christopher’s words as if from his own personal journal, so the audience can easily follow the timeline. “It’s also a play within a play. The script is very clever that way,” Beltran says. “While the scenes move between the past and the present pretty fluidly, through the use of the narrator, we can kind of get grounded in what’s really happening. “The ensemble operates kind of like a Greek chorus. They’re a part of the action but also sort of objective observers,” Beltran explains. “They’re kind of expressing Christopher’s inner life. In a similar way, the technology, the projections, the lighting and the sound

C Brian Dunning, The Skeptoid Podcast By Lisa Sipe


ith so much information available today, it can be hard to find the truth. If you want to believe something badly enough, you’ll find someone out there supporting your belief—true or not. Brian Dunning, the science writer behind the award-winning podcast “Skeptoid: Critical Analysis of Pop Phenomena,” puts it like this: “Production companies call me all the time to be the scientist to support the other side, but in reality, they are just looking for me to say something to support their fictional idea.” You’ve likely heard people talk about the earth being flat or say the moon landing was a hoax. Dunning’s mission is to reveal the truth behind popular misinformation permeating our culture. In 2005, Dunning watched the Macworld keynote address in which Apple CEO Steve Jobs mentioned “Skepticality” as one of the top podcasts at the iTunes Music Store. It inspired Dunning to develop his own podcast. He studied film and television and had a background in science, but had never worked in the field. Podcasting was a way he could combine his interests, so he started the “Skeptoid” podcast for

ARTWATCH Darrel Driver

Cover Artist This weekend, Bend’s Old Mill District will see artists from around the country descend upon the banks of the river for the annual Art in the High Desert. This week’s cover artist, Darrell Driver, will be in attendance for the third year, making the trip from his home in Salt Lake City. Driver is a self-taught artist who began painting seven years ago. In that time he’s created an estimated 600 paintings, each with an associated narrative. His piece on this week’s cover, “Let’s Rub Our Wings Together,” is an oil painting on linen canvas, featuring eight species of birds navigating the sky on the back of a koi fish. While Driver chose to paint a variety of species so there would be contrast in the image, the image itself speaks boldly, beyond the technical aspects of painting. Driver’s painting speaks to our own

fun in 2006. “I was very fortunate that it caught on,” said Dunning. “It resonated with people and grew quickly.” This week, Dunning released episode 637. “Skeptoid” is like Gimlet’s “Science Vs.” podcast if you removed the goofy sound effects and cheeky puns and made it more serious. Dunning typically tackles four basic types of prominent pseudo-sciences: consumer frauds like magic jewelry, urban legends like Sasquatch, alternative medicines like acupuncture and conspiracy theories like chemtrails. “Skeptoid” packs so much critical thinking and facts into each episode, it’s even popular with teachers. Because of its traction in education, Dunning turned the business into an educational nonprofit so the company could provide educators and students access to content free of cost or ads. I asked Dunning if there were any subjects he won’t research or touch. He quickly said, “I don’t do anything political or religious because of the education mission. I don’t do current events because everyone else is doing it, and I want all the episodes to be timeless.”





“I don’t do anything political or religious because of the education mission. I don’t do current events because everyone else is doing it, and I want all the episodes to be timeless.” —Brian Dunning Jeff Kennedy

Not touching politics or religion is a good way to avoid provoking people but, surprisingly, serving up facts can be dangerous. Dunning has received death threats, had random people show up at his doorstep, and every day has to block people on Facebook and Twitter. When Dunning isn’t producing the “Skeptoid” podcast, his hands are in all types of media. He wrote and presented the documentaries “Here Be Dragons: An Introduction to Critical Thinking,” and “Principles of Curiosity,” both free to view online. This summer his book, “Conspiracies Declassified: The Skeptoid Guide to the Truth Behind the Theories,” was published, debunking popular theories, like the one about The Illuminati running the world. Currently, he has a revealing feature documentary film, “Science Friction,” in production, about scientists who get misrepresented in the media. “In an extreme example one scientist had his video edited to switch his words

around,” Dunning said. Bend has been home to Dunning for a little over a year. Since then, he’s brought two Bendites onto his team. “We’re trying to grow roots in Bend,” he said. “With these documentary films we want Bend to be known for producing high-end, educational content.” You might think with everything Dunning is doing he’s science and business all the time, but he says he also loves the Bend lifestyle. He likes to camp, kayak and head out in his Jeep with his family. I asked him if he was a beer drinker before he moved here, and he responded, “not as good of one.” SW

Ending Hunger with One Bag LITTLE BITES By Lisa Sipe


Bend Food Project uses simple formula to feed the hungry


By Lisa Sipe


“Everybody wants to help, but they want it to be easy.” —SUE MARCEAUX who founded the Bend Food Project with her husband, Larry, said the collection only takes a few hours. It’s a simple model. A neighborhood coordinator asks neighbors if they want to contribute, giving them a reusable Bend Food

Riff Wins Best Nitro at Cold Brew Fest

Riff Cold Brew’s Off The Cuff took home the Best Nitro award at the world’s largest cold-brewed festival in Vancouver, Wash. “Off The Cuff was incredibly smooth and delicious while highlighting the rich favors I expect to get from a great coffee,” said Judge Zach Perkins. “The texture was perfect— my go-to for cold brews is typically “still,” but Riff might have me converted!” Off The Cuff is cold brewed artisanal black coffee with notes of dark chocolate and toffee.

Helping the Bend Food Project is as simple as filling up a bag of food.

Project bag in which to collect food. “We suggest you put your bag in your pantry and as you see sales when you are shopping, you fill it,” Marceaux advises. Collection day happens every two months. Donors leave their filled food bag by their front door, and a neighborhood coordinator picks up the full bag and leaves an empty one. Marceaux said the program is designed to be simple, because “everybody wants to help, but they want it to be easy.” Beth Anderson works together with her friend Teresa King as a neighborhood coordinator. She told me, “It’s an easy way to help a lot of people.” Marceaux called Anderson and King “super achievers,” because they bring in so many bags from their close-knit Three Pines community. “It’s not a handout, but a hand up,” Lisa Sipe

King said after dropping off a haul of overflowing bags. All of the food brought to the Bend Food Project goes to The Giving Plate, started by Gary and Debra Kelso. In addition to the Kid’s Korner, The Giving Plate has several other programs serving people experiencing food insecurity. The monthly food box program allows guests to fill out a shopping list and receive about 25 pounds of food per family member, once a month. A grab-and-go pantry is available during open hours, providing an assortment of bread, pastries and other food and personal items. Guests don’t need to sign in to access the pantry. Most recently, The Giving Plate acquired the Backpacks for Bend program, started by Amy Fraley in 2009, providing weekend food for 450 kids in 28 Bend and La Pine schools. Combining Backpacks for Bend with the Kid’s Corner program, The Giving Plate serves over 1,000 local children. The Bend Food Project website lists the types of non-perishable food and non-food items the project needs. The next food collection day is Oct. 13—just in time to serve the community during the holidays.  SW

young girl with long red hair and freckles holds a shopping bag and stands in front of a row of kidheight food bins filled with fresh fruit, peanut butter, popcorn, fruit juice and other snacks at The Giving Plate’s Kid’s Korner. She stops and picks up a package of cheese and crackers. “These are my favorite,” she says, placing a few in her bag. The Kid’s Korner is the only food bank in Oregon exclusively for children 18 and under, where youngsters can shop for themselves anytime The Giving Plate is open. I visited the Bend Food Project on a collection day, where it all starts with a green reusable bag. The Bend Food Project provides The Giving Plate thousands of pounds of food each year through donations made by neighbors throughout Bend. Rows and rows of green bags bursting with non-perishable packaged food were stacked at the entrance of Holy Communion Church. Volunteers were fluttering around.

MICRO All About Brut IPA The SF export is craft beer’s hot new style


By Kevin Gifford



Crux’s new brut IPA offers dry bliss to drinkers.


uring a sweaty August afternoon around here, a lot of people’s thoughts quickly turn to knocking off to the local brewery and grabbing an IPA. Which one, though? The now-standard Northwest style? Something a little more sessionable? Or one of those ever-present New England-style IPAs, a genre which has exploded so massively that there are more entries in the 2018 Great American Beer Festival’s “Juicy or Hazy IPA” category than for regular IPA? If all those piney hops and fruit-juice bombs are tiring out locals’ palates a bit, it may be worth seeking out a so-called “brut IPA,” a brand-new genre of pale ale rapidly expanding across the U.S. over the summer. The secret to brut IPA, a term coined by brewmaster Kim Sturdavant of San Francisco’s Social Kitchen & Brewery, lies in a little enzyme called amylase. Amylase is often added to robust, high-alcohol beers like stout in order to boost attenuation—in other words, to encourage the yeast to eat up more sugar and reduce the resultant beer’s sweetness. High attenuation means very little sugar

survives the brewing process, making for beer with a thinner body and extra dryness without dulling the ABV count. Sturdavant debuted the Hop Champagne Extra Brut IPA at Social Kitchen last November, the result of his taking the amylase usually reserved for his triple IPA and adding it to a standard-strength ale. It quickly got people talking in California, and from there it’s spread across the entire country, amylase being an extremely common chemical to find around a brewery. So far this summer, Bend has seen brut IPAs from Sunriver, Riverbend, Boneyard (whose “DryPA” was a collaboration with Yakima’s Single Hill Brewing) and most recently Crux, whose Gated Commünity is on tap right now. All of these are super-dry, very aromatic, and highly effervescent beers. Despite being called an IPA, there’s almost no bitterness, with most of the hops added after the boil for aroma purposes. As a summer beer, it’s both novel and extremely refreshing—the perfect new style for riding out the high temperatures until fall. SW

of a Nation SCREEN Re-Birth Spike Lee throws down against the Klan By Jared Rasic 33


here are few filmmakers with such a mastery of tone, structure and storytelling as Spike Lee. His visual style and technical adventurousness are his hallmarks—but he never lets that style overwhelm the story he’s telling, even when he goes full bananas in films such as “Da Sweet Blood of Jesus” and “Chi-Raq.” Since Lee came into the indie film scene in 1986 with “She’s Gotta Have It,” he’s been a storyteller first and a technician second.

but with a lot more of Lee’s anger behind the lens and in the script, it could have been a wounded rallying cry for the nation. Don’t get me wrong, “BlacKkKlansman” is Lee’s best film since 2002’s “25th Hour,” but I walked out of the theater wishing he’d fought dirtier and went in for the kill. “BlacKkKlansman” skirts controversy by softening the life of Ron Stallworth to make him more heroic. According to Boots Riley, director of this year’s far-superior look at systemic racism, the real Stallworth infiltrated black Watching an intelligent and badass black man take on the radical organizations for years—and when the FBI would attempt to infiltrate white hate groups, it wasn’t to disrupt KKK with his Jewish partner is obviously a crowd-pleasing time at the movies, but with a lot more of Lee’s anger behind them, but instead to use them to attack the radical minority organizations.

Miles to Go

Wahlberg is still set on being a true American hero By Jared Rasic 35

The story is simple, with Wahlberg and his team of black-op CIA ninjas escorting a southeast Asian defector 22 miles through hostile territory. This gives the audience a chance to see Wahlberg do his impression of Ben Affleck in “The Accountant” and “The Walking Dead’s” Lauren Cohan a chance to prove she’s a damn movie star. As lots of heads and cars explode, we can enjoy the brainless action—as long as we try not to remember how much of a dick Mark Wahlberg was when he was younger. “Mile 22” is one hell of a thrill ride, creating some of the most intense urban warfare sequences I’ve seen since “Black Hawk Down.” The film will probably be forgotten by December, but it sets up future sequels in a genuinely entertaining way, leaving me excited for more while also hating myself just a little bit. SW



think most can agree that Mark Wahlberg is a dick. Ignoring his apparently bottomless need to recreate American tragedies, he’s obviously the guy who kicked sand in your face at the beach. This is a man who told Men’s Journal in 2012 that he probably could have stopped one of the 9/11 planes from hitting the towers. He’s also a guy who’s been busted several times for attacking minorities while yelling racist hate speech, including an arrest for attempted murder in 1988 when he assaulted a middle-aged Vietnamese man with a large stick, according to The Washington Post—in addition to several other arrests for assault. If Wahlberg had done all this crap when there was an internet, his career would be as dead as Kevin Spacey’s. The irony here is that Wahlberg and director Pete Berg have spent the last five years making what I like to call the “America, F*ck Yeah” series of movies in which Marky Mark plays a heroic badass fighting to keep our country safe from brown people and faulty oil rigs. The one-two-three punch of “Lone Survivor,” “Deepwater Horizon” and “Patriots Day” makes it seem like Berg/Wahlberg are gonna be running for office in a few years.

As lots of heads and cars explode, we can enjoy the brainless action as long as we try not to remember how much of a dick Mark Wahlberg was when he was younger. As much as I liked those movies, “Mile 22” does something I really needed from this filmmaking team: making a no-frills action thriller less concerned with geo-politics and more focused on gunfights and explosions. Berg can direct the hell out of an action sequence, but all of his characters tend to sound like Alex Jones on anti-psychotics. A movie that just wants to blow stuff up in beautiful ways, while giving martial arts master Iko Uwais people to kick in the face, is OK by me.

Hey look! It’s Mark Wahlberg, saving us all over again.

A Fisheries Pioneer

By David Sword

Amy Stewart was ODFW’s first district-wide female fish biologist By Brian Jennings

A career in the outdoors Growing up, she describes herself as a tomboy. Along with her twin sister she was constantly in the outdoors, sailing, kayaking and fishing. Her sister eventually chose a forestry career, while Stewart became interested in fish and wildlife. “I knew I wanted to work with the critters in the outdoors,” she says. When it comes to bodies of water, the Crooked River in ODFW’s Prineville District was a big focus for Stewart. Famous for native redband trout, Stewart’s work has made a major impact on that fishery. As the lead author on the Crooked River Basin Study of the trout, she began tracking the redband population and health throughout the basin. Up to that point, no baseline information was available. Knowing the region was historically a major producer of spring chinook salmon and summer steelhead, she began sampling the redband habitat and populations throughout the basin. The plan she helped write set the guidelines for managing fish into the future throughout the basin. Fishery concerns Noting the constant push and pull between having enough water for agriculture and the fishery, Stuart’s biggest concern is a common one: having enough water to sustain healthy fish. “That’s a conundrum in Central Oregon

Amy Stewart, along with representatives from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, is vocal in opposition to a planned Off-Highway Vehicle trail in the Ochocos.

because there’s a certain segment of us that wants healthy rivers able to provide important stream habitat for fish and wildlife species, but we also have irrigated agriculture which is an important part of Oregon’s economy.” Like many who fish, she wants more in-stream flow during the fall and winter months to sustain healthier fish populations. Low stream flows during winter months, when water is being stored in the Prineville Reservoir for irrigation, can lead to higher temperatures and mortality rates for fish downstream. When the Crooked River legislation was passed in 2014, she says, it was meant to provide “surety” for irrigators in the Crooked River Basin. At the same time, she says, “It’s probably increased the harm and risk for not only native redband, but the production of steelhead.” She cites ODFW studies that say when water is released at 30 cubic feet per second or lower in the winter, it has resulted in a “significant drop in fish populations.” Fish & OHVs Stuart, like many others, is also critical of a proposed 137-mile off-highway

vehicle trail in the Ochoco National Forest. Organizations and agencies such as the Oregon Hunters Association and ODFW have registered strong objections to the planned trail. “Deep Creek in the Ochocos is probably one of my all-time favorite streams. I love wet-wading on hot summer days, fishing for little redband trout in that stream, and those are the places that should be protected from certain uses.” A portion of the Summit OHV trail would run through the Deep Creek watershed and she worries about mudding and sentiment caused by motorized vehicles. “It’s some of the premier fishing left in the whole forest and I’m very concerned about it.” Representatives from ODFW, her former employer, have been loud critics of the OHV plan, maintaining that motorized disturbance would also have a negative impact on some of the region’s most important elk habitat. A decade-long battle over the trail proposed by the Ochoco National Forest may be coming to a head with a judge’s decision expected soon, according to Oregon Wild, which is also in strong opposition.  SW

A classic hike for visitors, or to save for when the crowds subside Touted as the home of sport climbing in the United States, Smith Rock State Park is a gem of Central Oregon proportions. The aptly named Crooked River carved a natural moat between the vertically fissured canyons and the vast and towering faces of ancient molten ash known as welded tuff. Painted in hues of orange and purple with a snow-capped horizon and azure blue skies, Smith Rock is postcard perfect. At 4 miles and 1,000 feet of elevation gain, this popular circumnavigation of the park should be on everyone’s tick list. Hint: Try it during the week, and after Labor Day, when the crowds thin out. Getting There: Head north of Bend on Hwy. 97, turning right at the light in the hamlet of Terrebonne. Don’t let the cute and fuzzy faces of local alpacas distract you from your goal. A single dayuse or annual Oregon State Parks pass is required for car parking within park boundaries, available at the self-service pay station at the Welcome Center. Grab your lunch, your hiking poles (you might want them for the descent), fill your water bottle and head down toward the River Trail. Your loop intersects with the Mesa Verde Trail and finishes on Misery Ridge. Although either direction is feasible, a clockwise rotation is a personal favorite. Go left after crossing the footbridge. Take a moment or two and watch rock climbers crimp, jam and pull up the edgy and pocketed climbs of the Dihedrals area, where Smith Rock route developer Alan Watts and crew created rock climbs that became world famous. Look for river otters, osprey and golden eagles as the River Trail circuitously rounds many more outcroppings. Patience is rewarded as you finally gain sight of Central Oregon’s most famous grinning simian. Towering hundreds of feet above the river, the freestanding Monkey Face is a geologic marvel, and home to both serious rock climbs and slack-lining. Take the Mesa Verde trail which leads you to the base of the Monkey and to Misery Ridge. The view from the top of Misery Ridge trail is nothing short of spectacular. If you dare, wander on toward Monkey Face. On any given day you may see climbers ascending, or slack-liners walking across the expanse toward the mouth cave. The decent from the top is challenging, but worth every step you take back toward the footbridge and parking lot. Commitment level: moderate Sweat level: moderate Stoke level: full gas

was told women belong in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant,” recalls former state Fish Biologist Amy Stuart of Prineville. In 1983, she was hired by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife as its first district-wide female fish biologist, based in Prineville. With natural resources degrees from Cornell and Colorado State Universitiy, she interviewed for the position and was selected based on her knowledge, leadership skills and passion for conservation. One problem: her boss was the lone negative vote, cast among a board of seven people. Her first days on the job were spent with that new boss showing her around the district and introducing her to colleagues and community leaders. “He was really upset and resented that they hired a female—and two days after they hired me, he left and moved to Madras,” she says with a laugh. That was the beginning of a 31-year career at ODFW. She retired in late 2014 and now volunteers as a board member of Central Oregon LandWatch, fishes and hunts with her husband, friends and two dogs. She’s still a biologist at heart and shows up for the annual Crooked River fish survey of native redband trout.

A Cleanup at Arnold Ice Cave By Jim Anderson with names of cavers who visited that spot in 1920. Arnold Ice Cave has an illustrious history. Some 80- to 100,000 years ago the area southeast of Bend was a fiery maelstrom of pahoehoe lava flowing across the landscape like boiling hot, muddy water. One of the local lava cones, Lava Top, is so named because it’s surrounded by an aa aa lava flow—the source of most of the pahoehoe lava that created the Arnold Ice Cave. (Pahoehoe and aa aa are two Hawaiian terms to describe types of lava that flow from volcanoes.) Over time, Arnold filled with ice. When the ancient residents of Oregon began to settle in and call the land home, it yielded water. Archeologists have found evidence that some 10,000 years ago, people released water from the ice by thawing it with burning pine logs. Later, early pioneers who settled into Central Oregon—especially those who made money cutting timber—found keeping their food from rotting in summer a big problem. That’s when Arnold Ice Cave and others of its ilk proved dandy for starting an icebox business. One early saloon owner thought he could corner the ice business by making his own road to Arnold Ice Cave, keeping others from using it. But the competition over who would be “boss” didn’t stop the people who wanted the ice from building a rough road from Bend to Arnold Ice Cave—eventually taken by the railroad that transported logs to the Brooks-Scanlon mill. This month’s great turnout to do a cleanup of Arnold Ice Cave didn’t yield any more historic tools from the Bend


In top photo, Brent McGregor, Kara Michelson and Ginger Sanders (center) work with volunteers and USFS personnel removing the defunct wooden ladder installed in the cave in the early 1960s. Bottom left, Greg Harshman carries ladder debris to the top of the ice cave trail. At right is the ice wall entrance to Arnold Ice Cave, circa 1952.

Ice Age, but it did provide a great many wonderful workers from several local agencies the opportunity to clean up— and have a lot of fun doing it. It was wonderful to see the efforts all the volunteers and USFS employees went to to make the Arnold cleanup a success. Eddy Cartaya, an outstanding member of the Oregon Grotto, rigged ropes and cables that made removing the debris from the ice cave somewhat easier. “It was a smoky morning at Arnold Ice Cave,” said Ginger Sanders, longtime member of the Oregon Grotto. “There’s excitement in the air as the long, long line that snakes up from inside the cave all the way over the breakdown piles and up the steep hill, starts to

vibrate and sing. Everyone up top grabs the lines and starts hauling up old wood in a massive combined effort. As it sees the light of day, it smells like a lava cave. “Some of us pick out random bits to make something cool for ourselves, so it won’t just go to the dump and be forgotten. It means something to us. Each cave holds our own personal stories, the stories of our children, our friends. This one, in particular, holds special history of our town,” Sanders says. “At the end of the day, the cave is rid of its large pile of old wood and wire. It seems to breathe a sigh of happiness. So do we. It’s an honor to be a part of this day. And my car,  filled with very dirty old wood, smells like the cave. How can I save this smell forever?”  SW

his month, Arnold Ice Cave—located about 12 miles down China Hat Road from Bend—was the site of a whole bunch of good people helping to remove the old, defunct stairway in the cave. The stairway was installed by the U.S. Forest Service in 1963 to provide safe access to the floor of the cave. Mother Nature didn’t like that ugly thing in the cave, and buried it in ice shortly after. Back around 1958, this writer and his cave partner, Phil Coyner, were (or so we thought) the first humans to go into the ice-choked area of the cave—an exciting slide down a huge, round wall of ice. When we got to the ice floor of the cave we could see into the rear portion, but the ice floor was too close to the lava ceiling for us to get through. Phil chopped a ditch in the ice large enough for us to slide through, which gave us access to the cave extension. We walked on ice all the way to what we presumed to be the end of the cave. Ice embedded in the walls of the lava tube winked and reflected the gas lights we wore on our hard hats, but we saw no sign of bats, other cave visitors or cave life. Had we explored more carefully we would have found ice crickets—which we discovered in South Ice Cave a few months later. Just recently, because of a lack of ice, cavers of the Oregon High Desert Grotto explored into the cave’s extension and walked on the lava floor, instead of ice. Eddy Cartaya discovered a group of small lava rocks arranged like a box on the floor of the cave. When he carefully moved the rocks, he discovered a small glass jar, and inside the jar, slips of paper

Home Improvements Outpacing New Home Construction

Temperatures are dropping but that doesn’t mean your sales have to drop too!




eing very concerned about the lack of affordable housing in our area, I’m constantly researching possible solutions and current and future housing trends. This past month, several media articles have stated that home improvement and remodeling projects are outpacing new home construction. Another hot topic: the increase in the median age of owner-occupied homes. These trends indicate more people are choosing to stay in their homes instead of moving, which naturally has an influence on housing supply.    According to BuildFax, remodeling has increased by about 30 percent over the last five years. Home Depot reported sales increases of 8.4 percent from

the second quarter of 2017 to the second quarter of 2018. Additionally, American Association of Retired Persons surveys report about 90 percent of homeowners approaching retirement wish to age in place in their current homes. With the median age of owner-occupied currently at 37 years—up from 31 years in 2005—along with the increase in home improvement and maintenance projects, this is an indicator that people are improving their current residences as an alternative to moving. High prices and low inventories make it more desirable to stay put and help keep housing inventories down, along with too few new construction units to meet consumer demand.

My friend was dying to tell her new boyfriend she loves him but waited till he said it first. She, in fact, makes that a rule. Now I have a new boyfriend. Should I just shamelessly own my feelings—that is, tell him I love him? Or should I follow my friend’s lead? —Hating Waiting

We have this notion that it’s really romantic for a couple to say “I love you” pronto: “The moment he/she sat down at the bus stop next to me, I just knew!” In reality, “love at first sight” tends to come with some issues, such as the failure to weed out any insta-beloveds who kiss like big-lipped fish. Your desire to go all blurtypants on the guy likewise seems romantic—until you consider the psychological mechanics behind it. Chances are, you’re in a state of psychological tension -- all fired up with suspense at how the guy will respond— and only by telling him will you finally get relief. (It’s basically the emotional version of really, really needing to pee.) Research on sex differences in “parental investment” by evolutionary biologist Robert Trivers suggests that it’s probably a bad idea for you, as a woman, to go first with the ILY. Trivers explains that in species like ours, in which females get stuck with the burden of parental care (should sex lead to the creation of toddlers), they evolved to vet males for ability and willingness to invest—more than that initial teaspoonful of sperm, that is. Men coevolved to expect this— to expect to have to prove themselves to women to get sex. In short, men chase; women choose. Sure, there are couples out there in which the woman chased and things ended up just fine. But those evolved differences in male and female psychology are still driving us—even now, in our world of smartphones, facial recognition software, and, before long, family vacations in flying minivans. In other words, you’re taking a risk by tossing out the ILY first—possibly causing the guy to want you less than if you let him take the lead in ILY blurtations. And hi, feminists! I can hear the flicking of your lighters as you ready your pitchforks and hay. But the way I see it, what should be feminist is acknowledging what seems to be the optimal approach for women per research on human psychology. Despite the risks, you may decide to be that rebel gazelle that chases the lion. If so, why not go all the way? Pull out

your man’s chair for him in restaurants. Put your jacket over his shoulders on a cold night. And be the one who goes downstairs with the baseball bat when there’s a weird noise at 3 a.m. As he cowers in bed, reassure him: “Baby, you just stay there in your nightie...I got this.”

The Benefits Of Exorcise My fiancee dumped me three months ago. I was devastated, but I’ve come to realize that we shouldn’t be together. Now she keeps pressing for us to meet, saying there’s stuff she needs to “process.” I was finally starting to get over her, but should I just go? —Torn

Getting together with your ex-fiancee after you’ve finally started to move on is like being just out of rehab and reconnecting with a friend: “What could be Amy Alkon the harm? A nice pastrami on rye with my old heroin dealer!” Your brain, like an air-conditioned Miami mansion, is “expensive” to run, so it tries to go on autopilot (basically nonthink mode) whenever possible. When you repeatedly take a certain action—like turning to a certain person for love, attention, and comforting— that action becomes more and more automatic. On a neural level, this plays out with a bunch of individual brain cells (neurons) that “wire together,” as neuroscientist Carla Shatz puts it. This happens after individual neurons each fire off a chemical messenger—a neurotransmitter—that another neuron catches and absorbs. The more a person repeats the same action—and the more a group of neurons does the same fire-off-and-catch sequence—the faster they get at it. Eventually, these neurons become what I like to describe as a “thinkpack”—conserving mental energy through bypassing the conscious thought department and robotically defaulting to whatever action worked for the person in the past. Right now, the last thing you need is to stall your recovery process— the weakening over time of those entrenched neural pathways—by getting the band (Ramon and The Neurons) back together. If you feel bad about saying no to seeing her, consider how she’s prioritizing her need to “process” over your continued recovery. loving!

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny greats. Renowned for his luminous landscapes, he specialized in depicting the power of nature and the atmospheric drama of light and color. Modern poet Mary Ruefle tells us that although he “painted his own sea monsters,” he engaged assistants “to do small animals.” She writes that “he could do a great sky, but not rabbits.” I’m hoping that unlike Turner, you Piscean folks will go both ways in the coming weeks. Give as much of your creative potency and loving intelligence to the modest details as to the sweeping vistas.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In all the time we’ve worked on diminishing your suffering, we may have not focused enough on the fine art of resolving unfinished business. So let’s do that now, just in time for the arrival of your Season of Completion. Are you ready to start drawing the old cycle to a close so you’ll be fresh when the new cycle begins? Are you in the mood to conclude this chapter of your life story and earn the relaxing hiatus you will need before launching the next chapter? Even if you don’t feel ready, even if you’re not in the mood, I suggest you do the work anyway. Any business you leave unfinished now will only return to haunt you later. So don’t leave any business unfinished!

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The two pieces of advice I have for you may initially seem contradictory, but they are in fact complementary. Together they’ll help guide you through the next three weeks. The first comes from herbalist and wise woman Susun Weed. She suggests that when you face a dilemma, you should ask yourself how you can make it your ally and how you can learn the lesson it has for you. Your second burst of wisdom is from writer Yasmin Mogahed: “Study the hurtful patterns of your life. Then don’t repeat them.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Are you ready to mix more business with pleasure and more pleasure with business than you have ever mixed? I predict that in the coming weeks, your social opportunities will serve your professional ambitions and your professional ambitions will serve your social opportunities. You will have more than your usual amount of power to forge new alliances and expand your web of connections. Here’s my advice: Be extra charming, but not grossly opportunistic. Sell yourself, but with grace and integrity, not with obsequiousness. Express yourself like a gorgeous force of nature, and encourage others to express themselves like gorgeous forces of nature. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “When I picture a perfect reader,” wrote philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, “I picture a monster of courage and curiosity, also something supple, cunning, cautious, a born adventurer and discoverer.” I suspect he was using the term “monster” with a roguish affection. I am certainly doing that as I direct these same words toward you, dear Sagittarian reader. Of course, I am always appreciative of your courage, curiosity, cunning, suppleness, and adventurousness. But I’m especially excited about those qualities now, because the coming weeks will be a time when they will be both most necessary and most available to you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You do not yet have access to maps of the places where you need to go next. That fact may tempt you to turn around and head back to familiar territory. But I hope you’ll press forward even without the maps. Out there in the frontier, adventures await you that will prepare you well for the rest of your long life. And being without maps, at least in the early going, may actually enhance your learning opportunities. Here’s another thing you should know: your intuitive navigational sense will keep improving the farther you get from recognizable landmarks. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Healing isn’t impossible. You may not be stuck with your pain forever. The crookedness in your soul and the twist in your heart may not always define who you are. There may come a time when you’ll no longer be plagued by obsessive thoughts that keep returning you to the tormenting memories. But if you hope to find the kind of liberation I’m describing here, I advise you to start with these two guidelines: 1. The healing may not happen the way you think it should or imagine it will. 2. The best way to sprout the seeds that will ultimately bloom with the cures is to tell the complete truth. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Nineteenth-century British painter J. M. W. Turner was one of the

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Speak the following declaration aloud and see how it feels: “I want strong soft kisses and tender unruly kisses and secret truth kisses and surprise elixir kisses. I deserve them, too.” If that puts you in a brave mood, Taurus, add a further affirmation: “I want ingenious affectionate amazements and deep dark appreciation and brisk mirthful lessons and crazy sweet cuddle wrestles. I deserve them, too.” What do you think? Do these formulas work for you? Do they put you in the proper frame of mind to co-create transformative intimacy? I hope so. You’re entering a phase when you have maximum power to enchant and to be enchanted. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): As you map out your master plan for the next 14 months, I invite you to include the following considerations: an intention to purge pretend feelings and artificial motivations; a promise to change your relationship with old secrets so that they no longer impinge on your room to maneuver; a pledge to explore evocative mysteries that will enhance your courage; a vow to be kinder toward aspects of yourself that you haven’t loved well enough; and a search for an additional source of stability that will inspire you to seek more freedom.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you have been communing with my horoscopes for a while, you’ve gotten a decent education — for free! Nonetheless, you shouldn’t depend on me for all of your learning needs. Due to my tendency to emphasize the best in you and focus on healing your wounds, I may neglect some aspects of your training. With that as caveat, I’ll offer a few meditations about future possibilities. 1. What new subjects or skills do you want to master in the next three years? 2. What’s the single most important thing you can do to augment your intelligence? 3. Are there dogmas you believe in so fixedly and rely on so heavily that they obstruct the arrival of fresh ideas? If so, are you willing to at least temporarily set them aside? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “All the world’s a stage,” wrote Shakespeare, “And all the men and women merely players.” In other words, we’re all performers. Whenever we emerge from solitude and encounter other people, we choose to express certain aspects of our inner experience even as we hide others. Our personalities are facades that display a colorful mix of authenticity and fantasy. Many wise people over the centuries have deprecated this central aspect of human behavior as superficial and dishonest. But author Neil Gaiman thinks otherwise: “We are all wearing masks,” he says. “That is what makes us interesting.” Invoking his view — and in accordance with current astrological omens — I urge you to celebrate your masks and disguises in the coming weeks. Enjoy the show you present. Dare to entertain your audiences.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I think you’ve done enough rehearsals. At this point, the apparent quest for a little extra readiness is beginning to lapse into procrastination. So I’ll suggest that you set a date for opening night. I’ll nudge you to have a cordial talk with yourself about the value of emphasizing soulfulness over perfectionism. What? You say you’re waiting until your heart stops fluttering and your bones stop chattering? I’ve got good news: The greater your stage fright, the more moving your performance will be.

Reefer Regs Roll Hard




hile Oregon’s recreational cannabis industry strives—and often succeeds—in being Daniel Day-Lewis (aka, a “good actor”), there are times when we take actions more like Adam Sandler (aka, “bad actor”). Growers, producers, dispensaries and others face judgement and penalties on two fronts: the electronic public square of social media, and the more fearsome regulatory agency smackdown, which adds stiff financial penalties to the Scarlet “C” of public opinion. The very definition of a “bad actor” is open to interpretation. What is intentional and deliberate (shipping 300 pounds of weed to Ohio? Duuuuuude, come on), or something that is a matter of lazy record keeping or simply legitimate confusion regarding a complex system of frequently changing rules a dispensary and making multiple purand regulations?
