OPINION Some people have transportation options. Others don’t have “options” at all.
A WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / September 28, 2017 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE
mong the things that can be said about the foibles of humanity, one thing seems to be true: We don’t always choose the things that are good for us. When given a choice, most kids would choose the cookie over the vegetable— even in spite of a parent’s passionate arguments about the many benefits of the veg. People sometimes have to be told, sometimes by a parent, sometimes by a body tasked with working toward the greater good of a community, how to act. So it goes with the debate over the city’s integrated land use and transportation plan, which, among its many tenets, seeks to increase people’s transportation choices and cut down on the reliance on cars. According to the Bend Metropolitan Transportation Plan, the “Oregon Transportation Planning Rule (TPR) requires that the MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization) and the local jurisdictions in the urban area develop measures and benchmarks that will demonstrate that the Bend area is increasing its reliance on non-automobile modes.” Drivers aren’t left out of the equation. The Plan also outlines a number of “aspirational” projects, yet unfunded, to address roadway system needs, including congestion in the central city, the Bend Parkway and portions of Hwy. 20 and Greenwood Avenue. Is a focus on alternative forms of transportation a “war on cars?” If it is a war, and Open Streets its battle, it’s a paltry skirmish. The other 364 days a year, you can call what happens on the streets nothing short of a “war on everything besides cars.” During the Open Streets event Sept. 17, streets in midtown Bend and the Maker’s District were closed to cars for four hours, allowing families with young children, the elderly, people with limited mobility and everyone else a chance to populate those streets (many that don’t offer sidewalks that would otherwise allow people to roam freely) without the fear that can come from riding close to auto traffic. Families were out on the streets, for once, because they felt safe enough to do so. The other 364 days a year, the “war” of watching out for auto traffic is back on for those folks. Part of a larger nationwide movement that’s been going long before Bend got in on it, Open Streets is aimed at highlighting “equitable transportation designs” and, reducing
dependence on motor vehicles by encouraging active transportation. It’s the baby-step that can get kids and adults to consider riding, walking or skating as transportation. It may also be a vegetable, when those kids and adults would prefer a cookie. But let’s not forget a few other important items in the description of the “war on cars.” First, some people are not at war with cars. They simply can’t afford them, and want options in their community that allow them to get to work and the grocery store safely. And then there’s the environmental impact of choosing driving over alternative forms of transport. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 27 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. in 2015 were created by the transportation sector; not a small amount. If you’re tired of people trying to compel you with the vegetable-like argument that reducing greenhouse gas emissions is the right thing to do for the planet, perhaps a more economic argument will suit your fancy. For one, drier, hotter summers and longer fire seasons have a direct effect on the local economy. According to a 2008 report from the National Resources Defense Council, “decreases in snowpack, less snowfall, earlier snow melt, more winter rain events, increased peak winter flows, and reduced summer flows have been documented. Scientists have recently attributed more than half of these changes in the West between 1950 and 1999 to the effects of heat-trapping pollutants.” That includes the pollutants your car makes. If you can’t draw the line to how hotter, drier summers affects business, simply take a look at how the town of Sisters has suffered economically during this latest spate of wildfires. Still, in places such as Europe, Asia and even Portland, Ore., many people choose alternative forms of transportation not because they prefer the vegetables over the cookie— but also because the traffic got bad enough, and concurrently, the infrastructure existed to allow them to choose not to drive. In short, they do it because they have to, and because they can. We support our local and state government’s efforts to cut down on driving. We aim to be on the side of history that favors getting out of our cars, if and whenever it’s possible to do so. SW

WHAT BEND REALLY NEEDS
IN RESPONSE TO, “SEN. MERKLEY SPEAKS ABOUT HEALTHCARE. THIS IS NOT A DRILL: TRUMPCARE IS BACK.” (9/18) Let them pass it. They will look like idiots and will be voted out 2018. Then YOU and the rest of the Dems can quit being neo-libs and put universal healthcare in. — Lance Collier That is screwing a lot of Americans for political gain. — Gary Hilliard
IN RESPONSE TO, “SISTERS FOLK FESTIVAL OFFERS PARTIAL REFUND.” (9/20) When a thunderstorm prevented Rodrigo y Gabriela from performing at nonprofit venue Britt Festivals last month, a full refund was an option. While I understand SFF incurred costs, the consumers purchased a product and didn’t receive it so I think a full refund is in order. — S. Everenz How about the ability to attend for free next year, with a confirmed purchase of the 2017 event ticket. — Chuck Malley
IN RESPONSE TO, “BELOVED BARTENDER: LOCAL BARTENDER ROSE FROM RUNNER-UP TO WINNER AT BITE OF BEND’S BARTENDER BRAWL.” (8/7) Aw, C’mon... I have a name beyond “the bartender from J Dub.” ;) — Love, Todd Steinbach
As much as I am sorry to hear Dr. O’s story, I don’t see much concern for patients like my son. He has received 2 years of poor care (broken brackets, “pokey wires,” etc.) and now needs to have his braces removed and start all over with a new orthodontist. Dr. O did not even put brackets on several of his teeth. The new orthodontist will need another year to correct some issues that Dr. O did not address. Dr. O’s health problem will end up costing me several thousand of dollars more than the several thousands I have already paid. Dr. O sent out a heartfelt letter to his patients but I think he should have also returned the money we paid him. In the end, we spent a lot of time, money and discomfort over the last 2 years. All we have to show for it is another year of braces and expenses. Another year in braces for a 13 year old is a big deal. It also bothers me that my time and hard earned money feed another’s drug addiction. I also think the Board of Dentistry deserves some heat for placing Dr. O’s confidentiality a higher priority than the health of the pediatric patients in his practice. And the above article mentioned he was clean and sober at work for several months. B.S — We saw him tired and haggard. He was late. He cancelled appointments. He no-showed us. We all felt bad for him because his kids were not good sleepers and keeping him up all night. In hindsight, there is no way he was sober. I hate to say it but Dr. O’s problem went way beyond just him and his poor family... We all got screwed too. — P. Atticus
IN RESPONSE TO, “HOMELESSNESS IS NOT A CRIME. BUT GOOD LUCK TICKETING THEM FOR IT!” (9/20) It’s absolutely ASTOUNDING that the Bend City Council all of a sudden cares about the ADA (American Disability Act). After decades of abdicating their authority and mandate to comply with the ADA they now use it as a weapon against the poor, homeless and disabled living on the streets. WHAT A VILE DISGUSTING group of people!!!! — S. Armmuch Good piece. Just want to point out, however, that sit-lie ordinances were not in fact eventually ended in Honolulu. They have continued, with a series of bills incrementally expanding the sit-lie prohibition zones and street segments. — David Atcheson

What Bend really needs most at this time, considering how destructive the popularity, it is increasingly not enjoying is becoming, is a good eruption from one of the little sleeping volcanoes to the west, accompanied by a good easterly blowing wind. Once a few feet of ash come down, followed by more and more from subsequent eruptions, you can bet your biffy “for sale” signs will be going up all over town (westside too) and most of the recently arrived immigrants will be morphing into soon to be departing emigrants. This is just what the doctor ordered and just what the patient needs, as the patient is being loved to death, obviously. Rumor has it that a group supposedly “on very good terms with Mother Earth” is working very hard to make sure this fantasy becomes reality. Hopefully they will succeed. — Marco Munez

Perfectly said. Instead of following the model of other cities that—at the very least—set up sanctioned areas for overnight parking and locations for longer term residency for the houseless, Bend—shamefully—choses to crack down. Despite the much heralded new economy, with its record breaking Dow Jones, I am noticing am alarming increase in homelessness in the areas I most frequent: the I-5 and Highway 97 and 101 corridors. Greg Walden’s Congressional District continues to have high levels of poverty and food insecurity. The unequal society is upon us. City governments have often been called the laboratories of democracy, but how sad to see Bend follow the example of governance by heartlessness now championed in Washington, DC. — Foster Fell

American Carnival: Costume and Class in Trump’s America
he political heat of 2017 has finally boiled all the political chants down to their essence: “Fuck that shit!” More than a thousand juggalos—fans of the horror-art rap group the Insane Clown Posse—chanted this perfect refrain for our insane era in front of the Lincoln Memorial Sept. 16. Many of them were wearing clown paint on their faces or sporting tattoos or other signs that they are down with the clown. Farris Haddad, who was introduced as “the motherfucking juggalawyer,” was speaking when the chant broke out for probably the fifth or sixth time. “We’re talking about freaking music here. If this is allowed to stand, and so far it has been, then we definitely don’t live in a free society anymore,” he says. He was talking about the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has designated the juggalos as a “loosely organized hybrid gang”—a 2011 designation, which, juggalos say, has real consequences. One speaker at the rally, Jessica Bonometti, told how she was fired from her job as a probation officer in Virginia because she liked ICP-related photos on her personal Facebook page. Another, Crystal Guerrero, said she lost custody of her children for going to an ICP show. So Haddad, as juggalawyer, is trying to sue the FBI. “The Federal Court in Detroit actually tried to dismiss our case twice now saying basically that the FBI did nothing legally wrong by gang-listing thousands of normal everyday Americans.” “Fuck that shit,” the crowd roared. As Haddad told the crowd there’s is a new trial date, on Oct. 11 in Cincinnati, Chris Lopez, a man with a Van Dyke beard, long hair, and a D.A.R.E. baseball hat walks up and hands a sweatshirt and a sandwich to Michael Troy, who wears a suit and a red toboggan hat and sports a handlebar mustache. “I give sandwiches to everybody,” Lopez says, opening up a cooler and showing me a couple dozen sandwiches. “He gave me a jacket, too, because it’s gonna get cold later,” Troy says. Troy came from California on an overnight flight on Friday night and is planning to leave Sunday morning. I asked him why he felt it was worth so much
trouble and money. “It’s my family,” he says. “Family has family’s back no matter what. They are there for each other in times of need.” Maybe it is the California contingent that wears suits, because a guy from Oakland who calls himself Ape also sported a suit beneath his clown makeup. He’s part of a group called Struggalo Circus, which describes itself as “a ragtag and messy coalition between radicals and juggalos.” One of Ape’s comrades, a black man, carried a sign that read “Black Juggalos Matter.” There weren’t that many black juggalos. But, many juggalos and their supporters feel that class is at the center of the campaign against them. “If juggalos are a gang then why aren’t individual fraternities gangs?” says writer Camille Dodero at the rally. “What’s the difference between those groups and juggalos? To me...the difference with those kids is that those kids’ parents have money.” Another rally was going on at the same time, on the other side of the Mall. Organizers dubbed it the Mother of All Rallies—even though they were significantly outnumbered by juggalos. But with the exception of the Proud Boys, they don’t look like the fraternazis with rich parents. Bikers for Trump, Three Percenter militia-guys, 4chan Kekistan shitposters, and Captain America cosplayers, each of which, like juggalos, is distinguished by its uniform. The militia guys, for instance, wear Under Armour camos and backpacks (and had guns in Charlottesville) and the “Western chauvinist fraternity” Proud Boys wear black polos with yellow stripes on the collar and the sleeves. And Captain America, well... Pretty much all of the groups somehow saw themselves as “security.” They were there to protect the free speech of Trumpists from the media and dreaded antifa. As Drew Ambrogi, who works with No Justice No Pride, tried to get close to the counter protesters, one of the militia members told him to step back. “You’re not a law enforcement officer,” Ambrogi said on video. “They work for me,” a U.S. Park Police officer said of the militia man.
But when Proud Boys came up looking like they wanted to fight, it seemed like the militia managed to calm them down and keep them away (they wouldn’t talk to me). That’s when something kind of amazing happened. Inside the circle, one of the antifa activists named Iggy stood and talked for nearly an hour with one of the leaders of the militia. “I’ve spent a lot of time trying to understand you guys, to understand the socialist mentality, to understand the communist mentality,” the militia leader says. “To me you guys are my brothers and sisters... Why is there that difference? That’s what I’m trying to figure out.” “It’s a divide and conquer,” Iggy says. “There’s not that much difference.” Some antifa groups, like Redneck Revolt, have been actively reaching out to the militia groups. “A diversity of tactics,” Iggy says later, at the juggalo march, where the presence of a black bloc made some people nervous. “These people, they’re not fascists. They’re definitely trying to distance themselves from the fascist movement.” He says that the further alienated these militia-types are, the more likely they are to side with the fascists. At one point, as the Juggalos marched they chanted “One of us! One of us!”—a reference to the 1932 film, “Freaks.” The juggalos, antifa, and the militia are all freaks. All three groups are hated and feared by the average Americans, the normies. But there are still very real differences. A couple hours later, as the juggalos marched and a black bloc of antifa activists, with their faces covered, carried a sign that read “Whoop Whoop Fuck Nazis,” I am overwhelmed by the sense that all of these competing rallies and their attendant fashions are the essence of our spectacle-oriented politics. If you dress in black you may be called a terrorist, and if you wear clown paint or the hatchet man, you may be classified a gangster. If you dress in a militia uniform, the cops will likely claim you as their own. And, we are reminded again, as protests continued in St. Louis, if you are wearing a police uniform, you can still shoot black people and walk free. SW

Verizon Decides Against Cell Tower at Trinity Episcopal
Stricter Distracted Driving Law Begins Oct. 1 Starting Oct. 1, Oregon’s distracted driving laws get tougher. As of Sunday, it is illegal in Oregon to hold or use an electronic device while driving, under the newly-enacted Oregon House Bill 2597. The only exception, according to the bill’s fact sheet: “the use of a single touch or swipe to activate or deactivate the device or a function.” If drivers need to perform other functions with an electronic device, they’ll need to safely stop on the side of the road or in a parking spot. According to the fact sheet, “It is NOT legal to use the device when stopped at a stop light, stop sign, in traffic, etc.” Drivers 17 and under cannot use electronic devices at all while driving. By contrast, the 2009 distracted driving law required drivers to use a handsfree device and disallowed texting and driving—but that law wasn’t clear enough about banning the use of other apps, such as navigation apps. Holding and using an electronic device is a primary offense, meaning officers can stop a driver should they see the driver engaged with their mobile devices, reminds Lt. Clint Burleigh of Bend Police. With secondary offenses, such as smoking in a vehicle while a child is present—officers can’t stop drivers unless the driver is also committing a primary offense, Burleigh says. Under the new law, fines are higher, too. The presumptive fine for the first offense is $260 or $435 if the offense contributes to a crash. Fines for the

Cell phone provider Verizon has decided against placing a cell tower atop Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Bend. As reported by the Source in June, a group of parents at Amity Creek Magnet School, as well as neighbors adjacent to Trinity Episcopal, had opposed the placement of the tower, due to concerns about potential exposure to electromagnetic radiation. At that time, Heidi Flato, a spokesperson for Verizon, told the Source that the move was intended to address “service related concerns ranging from slow data performance to dropped calls.” Flato told the Source Weekly Tuesday that Verizon is no longer pursuing the Trinity Episcopal Church project, instead placing a temporary installation at Bend's City Hall. “This summer, we installed a temporary cell site at City Hall to improve coverage and capacity in the downtown area,” Flato said. City of Bend Communications Director Anne Aurand confirmed the presence of a temporary tower at City Hall Tuesday, saying the city currently receives no compensation for the tower—though cell service has markedly improved.
second offense are typically $435, and for the third offense within 10 years, it’s considered a Class B misdemeanor with a minimum fine of $2,000 and as much as six months in jail. Rep. Knute Buehler, (R-Bend) and Sen. Tim Knopp (R-Bend) voted against the bill. Legislative records show Rep. Gene Whisnant (R-Sunriver) was excused on House business during the House vote.
Funds for DACA Renewals Announced Central Oregon’s Latino Community Association has announced a funding opportunity for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, commonly known as DACA. The program allows children of undocumented migrants who entered the U.S. before age 16 to obtain a work permit and other legal status. People who already have DACA and a work permit and who are in need of help paying to renew their status can apply for funds through LCA, which announced the opportunity Tuesday. The funds come courtesy of the MRG Foundation, a member of the Oregon Immigrant & Refugee Funders Collaborative, a release from LCA stated Tuesday. Funds are limited and there is an income eligibility requirement. LCA will offer up to $495 per applicant for the first eight eligible applicants who apply.
City Councilor Announces Run for House Bend City Councilor, Dr. Nathan Boddie, has announced his bid for the House District 54 seat in the Oregon State Legislature. The House seat representing Bend, currently held by another physician, Dr. Knute Buehler (R-Bend), will be vacant during the 2018 election, due to Buehler’s run for governor of Oregon. Boddie is a primary care physician who was first elected to the Bend City Council in 2014. City Council races are non-partisan, but in the House race, Boddie will run as a Democrat. He has not yet filed for the spot with the Oregon Secretary of State’s OreStar system. SW

DISSECTING THE AIRBNB EFFECT: DO SHORT TERM RENTALS HELP SOLVE THE HOUSING CRISIS? IT MIGHT DEPEND ON WHO YOU ASK. By Magdalena Bokowa
ight now, a Dutch guy is bathing in Carol’s bathroom. It’s attached to her master bedroom in the mid-century bungalow she shares with her elderly mother. “He seems to take two showers a day,” she laughs. “Maybe it’s a European thing.” In her 50s, Carol—who asked to be known only by her first name—was born and raised in Central Oregon, and was one of the casualties of the economic downturn in 2009, when she lost her job. “It was a complete shock,” she says, “I was a single mother of two growing boys, my mother fell ill, I had a mortgage to pay for, and I felt completely helpless.” Four years later, she struggled to make ends meet, at one point holding three part-time positions. That all changed in 2013, when she sent her eldest son to college in Portland and had trouble finding a place to stay. “Everything was $200 or more a night,” she reflects. “I thought, here I am sending my son off to start his life, and his mother can’t afford to properly send him off.” Someone mentioned Airbnb. “I stayed in someone’s home, just like mine, for $55 a night. That’s when the lightbulb went off.” Carol came home energized and hopeful. She added a separate entrance to her master bedroom four weeks later, moved into the smaller guest room and has been welcoming guests ever since. “It’s been a godsend,” she says as she pulls up to my driveway, checking her Uber app to make sure she has the right address, “and now I’m thriving, where I would have been struggling.” Did I mention she also supplements her Airbnb income by driving for Uber? She’s given nearly 900 rides since the ride sharing app began service in Central Oregon in May — a prime example of a local capitalizing on the “sharing economy.”
HOUSING CRISIS ONCE TABOO, NOW THE NORM Across the high desert, stories such as Carol’s are increasingly common. The City of Bend reports there are 744 active short term rentals within the Bend city limits—more than a
200 percent increase in as little as three years, when there were only 344 listed permits. This is partly due to a 2015 rule change which required those leasing their homes, or up to two bedrooms to a tenant for fewer than 30 days, to apply for a short term rental permit. The rentals may have already been active, but now, homeowners are required to be licensed. “You can see that prior to the rule changes on April 5, 2015, there was a spike in the amount of permits being applied for at the City of Bend,” says Lorelei Williams, the City’s program manager. “After rule changes were made, there was a dropoff in the amount of permits being filed for, and this is mainly due to the 250-foot density buffer requirement for whole-house STR permits. Many homes became ineligible for a whole-house rental permit after those rule changes.” The 250-foot requirement is an effort by the City to regulate rentals, so that entire communities aren’t made into vacation sanctuaries. Though there is much speculation about Federal Street. being one of those vacation rental-heavy communities, the City says of the 105 tax lots on the street, only 18 of those are short term rentals—a rate of 17 percent. “The permit still proves to be popular as we are still receiving applications... and infrequent rental permits are not subject to a density buffer so those may still occur in saturated areas,” says Williams. Hence, why Federal Street may have more than the 17 percent reported rental rate. People attribute rental platforms such as Airbnb, VRBO and FlipKey to the spike, as it becomes easier and safer to rent. For people such as Carol, the taboo of letting strangers into your home seems to dissipate in the face of benefits such as self-employment and subsidized income.
VACATION RENTALS: HAPPENING FOR 20 YEARS “People used to ask me, how can you let strangers sleep in your bed?” exclaims Michele Halderman, who’s been renting homes across Oregon as vacation rentals for 30 years. “And I’d laugh and say, "Honey, for $500 a night they can do whatever they want in my bed. It’s their vacation.” Halderman began Bend Vacation Rentals in 1999 after a 10-year stint in Hood River, when the idea of renting out your own home was, as she puts it, a looney prospect. “I would walk around and ask people if they wanted to rent out their homes,” she reflects, “half thought I was crazy and the other half would pause, run the numbers and say yes...but they probably still thought I was crazy.” She started with one house, then four, then approximately 45 when she sold the business last year. “Bend’s always been
Think the City isn’t doing anything about all those Airbnb’s? Not quite. A recent citation regarding the operation of an illegal dwelling resulted in a whopping $28,500 fine… partially because the homeowner was a no-show and the court imposed the maximum penalty.
a tourist town, and I know some locals don’t want vacation rentals, but this is the way of the world. What some people might not realize is that it’s been happening for more than 20 years.” Halderman estimates there are 600 vacation rentals in the Bend area run by property management
“…a lot of people want to live in Bend and the reality is, not everyone can afford it, so if renting out a room in your house means you can live here, then why not?” — MICHELE HALDERMAN
EMBRACING CHANGING TRENDS As the ease of technology increases, the traditional rental market and consumer travel trends have changed. Long gone are weekly vacation rentals. “In the summer, yes, you’ll definitely get a week rental, but in the winter or shoulder seasons, you’ll be lucky to get two days at a time,” says Halderman. She says that in her 20 years in the vacation rental industry, the term “shoulder seasons” wasn’t applicable to Bend until Visit Bend began pulling in events in the fall or spring seasons four or five years ago. “Cyclo Nationals (in 2010) was when we started seeing an influx of people here in the fall, but it’s still relatively quiet here in those months.” A quick look at the vacancy rate on Airbnb for this upcoming Sept. 28-29 weekend confirms her observations; 241 rentals are still available for a two-day period. Though Airbnb spokesperson Laura Rillos was unable to confirm the total number of Bend area rentals, she does say, “The typical listing is booked just 46 nights a year—fewer than four nights a month.” The average Bend host earns $9,700 a year. Could those same availabilities be open for long term tenants instead? Carol, the Airbnb-turned-Uber driver, says her room wouldn’t be open to long term roommates anyway. “I wouldn’t have given up the comforts of my master bedroom and invested in a separate entrance for a long term roommate. My mother is ill and I don’t want to burden her with someone here full time. Airbnb allows me to rent just 10 days a month for the same price of a monthly roommate.” After this past winter’s heavy snowfall, Halderman says short term rentals were a saving grace for locals who became victims of ice dams, roof collapses and floods, using vacation rentals as temporary shelter while their permanent dwellings were fixed. “I think this winter was an anomaly; we had folks renting for two months while they waited for their homes to be fixed.” Added to the influx of those looking for a lifestyle change,

companies such as hers. That was once the norm, but the market has been overtaken by enterprising locals —and yes, even Bay-area transplants—using Airbnb-type platforms. Halderman was part of the 2014 task force organized by the City to tackle the burgeoning short term rental industry and its impacts on the housing market. With a less than 1 percent vacancy rate reported by the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development, Central Oregon is deep in the throes of a housing crisis. In 2015, the City Council, on recommendations from the task force, implemented a short term rental permitting process. Since 2016, the City has garnered a 10.4 percent transient room tax on every reservation, part of which goes into the City’s general fund. The City expects to garner approximately $13.1 million of the projected $19.6 million from these taxes in the next two years. This money is spent on projects ranging from public safety to yes, fixing those darn potholes. Still, another large portion, about 31 percent goes to promoting tourism, with entities such as Visit Bend garnering a significant portion of this leftover tax. Some say that with a housing crisis afoot, more of the pie should go toward supporting local housing solutions and less toward tourism promotion. To that end, the City successfully appealed to the State of Oregon to allow them to put more of the TRT toward the general fund, as of 2015. State rules prohibit an even bigger share of the pie.

"It’s about us actively trying to create housing for residents on the one hand, but then taking three units of residential housing and converting it away from residential housing into a hotel. You know, that’s where it comes down to...this is my dilemma. That we’re actually giving away land, in order to try and get affordable units, and then we do this.” Councilor Barb Campbell in response to Mayor Casey Roats asking her to vote in favor of the emergency text amendment to the Bend Development Code for Short Term Rentals in Deschutes Landing. Campbell initially abstained from the vote, citing affordable housing reasons, but later conceded to voting in agreement with the rest of the council to pass the first reading, 7-0.
retirees and traveling nurses, it’s all added to the housing pressure. “Of course, there’s also the relocation aspect that has greatly increased, I’d say in the last three years or so. Everyone wants their kids to be within biking distance of Summit (High School) or Pacific Crest,” Halderman says, laughing, “I mean, one day I had two Tanyas call me, and their story was exactly the same. I thought I was losing it, but it turns out they were two different people. “For those thinking renting out your home is just quick and easy cash, you’re dead wrong, it is a job,” says Halderman. “First, you’re taking a huge risk. Yes, it may pay off greater than having a long term renter, but it’s still a huge gamble. I mean, if the economy tanks, the weather turns or a disaster occurs, you’re left without an income.” She notes that the entire town came to a standstill when the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks occurred. and again during the recession. “People lost a lot of money and that’s something you can’t predict.” Still, it’s a gamble, which if it pays out, can pay out huge. “A small 1-bedroom mill house used to go for $60-100 a night, now it’s up to $300 a night,” she says. “An upscale property can go for $500,” she says. “But if you look at Tetherow, they’re renting their properties up to $800 a night, so I mean, the squeeze is already there. And they’re exempt from short term permits.”
A RECENT CITY COUNCIL DEBATE, AND AN “EMERGENCY” During the Sept. 20 City Council meeting, a first reading on an emergency text amendment to the Bend Development Code for Short Term Rentals in Deschutes Landing passed unanimously, allowing several properties in the subdivision to be exempt from the short term rental permitting process — similar to the Mt. Bachelor Village and Broken Top subdivisions. Of the 36 houses, 33 are already exempt and eight are rentals. A pending real estate transaction, according to Councilor Justin Livingston, drove the need for an “emergency” statute, meaning once passed on its second motion, the amendment would come into effect immediately, instead of within the regular 30-day window. Councilor Barb Campbell raised concerns regarding the motion and initially abstained from the vote, citing the dilemma this posed in light of the current housing crisis. “It’s about us actively trying to create housing for residents on the one hand, but then taking three units of residential housing and converting it away from residential housing into
REGULATION AND ENFORCEMENT From 2014 to early 2016, the City of Bend cited exactly zero homeowners operating illegal short term rentals. According to Julie Craig, the City’s code enforcement officer, there have since been just two citations for operating illegal dwellings this year. In 2016, there were five listed formal complaints. That figure has skyrocketed in 2017. Craig says she has received 48 complaints of illegal operating units this year. “I don’t receive too many complaints on legal STRs,” she says, but “when I do, they are related to noise, a non-responsive 24 hour contact person and occupancy.” Still, of the two citations, one homeowner who did not show up to court proceedings was fined a whopping $28,500. “That’s for two violations,” says Craig, “operating an illegal STR without the proper land use permit, ($750 a day for 19

Rillos of Airbnb also notes that “with 42 percent of Airbnb guest spending done in the neighborhood in which the guest stay[s], this brings economic benefits to businesses that have not traditionally benefited from tourism.” So the housing crisis won’t improve from the uptick in vacation rentals, but the community as a whole might. Brian Blaesser, a real estate attorney notes, “Fundamental property rights state that you should be able to buy, rent or sell a property,” he said. “Limiting renting is taking away one of those three rights, and further regulations beyond registration and inspection can be dangerous.” Halderman adds it’s the American way to not interfere with people’s choices. “How do you tell people you can’t make a living the way you want to make a living?” She says, “There’s so much more positive out of this than negative, and sometimes those in Bend can feel entitled… but a lot of people want to live in Bend and the reality is, not everyone can afford it, so if renting out a room in your house means you can live here, then why not? You’ve got to change how you feel about your community and allow for new, progressive ways to make a living flourish… just remember to be neighborly when you do it.” SW

a hotel. You know, that’s where it comes down to.” Livingston, who’s also a real estate agent, countered, “I appreciate you trying to protect the affordable housing, but these are $1-million-plus units, these aren’t affordable housing units.” Councilor and Mayor Pro-tem Sally Russell agreed, citing her participation on the 2014 task force during which they “identified certain areas throughout the city that would allow for type-1 short term permits. We knew we might be missing certain areas. ...For me, this change makes tons of sense.” Mayor Casey Roats agreed, noting that Deschutes Landing probably should have been designated this way in the first place, “If they (the landowners) would have approached us before (the April 15, 2015, change) it would probably been cleaned up then, and these poor folks have been hanging around in limbo for years now, months and months since they approached us.” “Hold on, Mr. Mayor,” Campbell interrupted. “You just pointed out they were “poor folks,” when Justin just said they are $1 million apartments. (laughs) I’m sorry. This is my dilemma, that we’re actually giving away land, in order to try and get affordable units, and then we do this.” With increased pressure from the mayor, Campbell agreed to vote, sighing, “An emergency it is then.”

S SOUND Honoring the Local Music Scene
Bend Roots Revival adds a stage and a spiritual element to this year’s free local music festival
he festival, started after organizers Mark Ransom and Brent Alan, both musicians and longtime fixtures in the local music scene, recognized that Bend has become a destination for internationally successful acts. The two wanted to create a gathering to celebrate the talent of local musicians, who may have become overshadowed by the national radar. “We wanted to create something that honored local musicians, their personality and artistic character,” Ransom recalls. Bend Roots Revival started in the Parilla parking lot, spreading to the Victorian Cafe and closing down the flaming chicken roundabout at Galveston
and 14th Street. The homegrown music festival outgrew that space and moved to the Century Center for two years, before having to relocate again in 2012. Next, the festival moved to Pakit Liquidators before the business closed. It’s found its more permanent home on the Deschutes Brewery lawn across from the Les Schwab Amphitheater. “I think the biggest new thing is that we added a stage,” Ransom says of this year’s festival. “It’s in the area that we're calling the ‘community art and chill zone.’ It offers a respite from the barrage of loud music and will have Zara Bird tasty, organic, non-alcoholic drinks and Bucha Buena kombucha will be at that location.”

For Central Oregon music lovers, the end of September signals one of the biggest community music festivals in the area. Bumped one week later than usual due to the Modest Mouse show at the Les Schwab Amphitheater last week, Bend Roots Revival has become a local tradition since 2006.

Ransom envisions the new stage, aptly titled the Music Makers Stage, to be the spiritual center of the festival. He’s recruited Breyn Hibbs, owner of Sol Alchemy Temple, to lead rituals on Saturday and Sunday. Music on this stage will lean on the more acoustic, folk side and getting heavier hitting later in the evening. “It underscores our mission in the community in regard to performing arts and the effect it has on our souls,” Ransom says. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do for a long time. We’ve always had yoga and other kinds of activities that are rooted in meditation.” Aside from the new spirituality element, attendees have a lot to look forward to this year. With 121 confirmed bands playing at this year’s festival, there’s really something for everyone. Ransom hopes the space will grow into a visual arts community within the festival, so there’s also the chance to participate in the community mural painting project with Rise Up on Saturday afternoon. There's also a plethora of music workshops with some of the area’s finest musicians. “The festival is a ritual. It comes from the idea that we’re, the best I can tell, the reason we’re here to celebrate and help each other,” Ransom says. “We’ve experienced dark times lately and the world needs hope. It’s a strong belief of our organization, to form a connection from where hope can spring. The ritual event we’re bringing in with Sol Alchemy, allows us to recognize this darkness and I imagine a Phoenix rising from the ashes. The rebirth. That creative energy is what can sustain that and take it to a collective community level. That’s the most important part of the festival. That’s what a lot of people feel about Bend Roots and that’s why it’s important to keep going.” SW Bend Roots Revival

Sometimes, you just want to hear a song you know, which is why we suggest you check out local Weezer cover band Weez-It (like Cheez-It, get it?).

Catch them on the El Sancho Stage on Saturday from 7:15-8pm.
I have a soft spot for female lead singers, especially those who are also badass musicians. Lande brings together some of Bend’s best musicians with lead singer and band namesake Jen Lande to form a melodic rock band with soaring vocals. Don’t miss their performance which closes out Saturday evening on the Music Maker’s Stage from 8-9pm.
Formed in 2006, Portland’s Mexican Gunfight combines rock and roll with gritty blues, pop and country lyricism to form an eclectic sound that will have you on your feet dancing. They’ll be performing Saturday on the BIGS Stage from 8-9:15pm.
RIOT ON A SUNDAY
One of my favorite local bands, you won’t want to miss seeing Riot on a Sunday performing at Bend Roots Revival.

Don’t miss Riot on a Sunday, appropriately playing on Sunday, on the Bucha Buena Stage from 1:302:15pm.

Bend-based indie rockers AM Clouds play their first show on Saturday at Bend Roots Revival
By Anne Pick
VOLUME 21 ISSUE 39 / September 28, 2017 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY From left, Pete Ficht, Dan Paggi, Bruce Moon and Graham Boostrom play their first gig as AM Clouds this Saturday at Bend Roots Revival.
Choosing which of the 120+ bands playing at this weekend’s Bend Roots Revival to spotlight was difficult.
ith a wide array of talented musicians in Central Oregon and many new bands popping up all the time, there was no shortage of options. After listening to their debut EP, “War of Love,” I knew I wanted to talk to the dudes that make up new Bend-based band AM Clouds. I met with Pete Ficht, bassist, and Bruce Moon, lead singer, songwriter and guitarist, on the patio outside the Source’s building. “It started when Bruce and I were introduced last year at a party,” Ficht says of the band’s beginnings. “We had both moved here from Portland and were both musicians. It turns out we had both played with one of the same people. It was just a really weird coincidence. Bruce mentioned he was sort of thinking about starting a band.” Both seasoned musicians, Moon and Ficht started playing together. When they started looking for a drummer, they turned to Craigslist and connected with Dan Paggi. Ficht met Graham Boostrom through their kids at school. Also a musician, the two hit it off, so when AM Clouds decided to add another guitarist, Boostrom came onboard. “He was just in the band, it had been really great chemistry. Just a good mix of people,” Ficht says. “We’ve all been frontmen of our bands, all multi-instrumentalists, all family men.”
Saturday, Sept. 30. 4:15pm Red Bird Stage, Bend Roots Revival SW Shevlin-Hixon Dr, Bend. No cover.
The band has been woodshedding for the last year and over the spring and summer recorded its first EP. The band members say they learned a lot during the writing and recording process for “War of Love” and are ready to hit the ground running with the next group of songs. “I’ve done most of the songwriting. We have a pretty collaborative process when it comes to hashing it out as a group,” Moon says. “Pete and all the guys in the band contribute to arrangements and harmonies. It’s great to have a fresh set of ears on songs. When you share them with other people, they have a fresh take and unattached view. It’s a collaborative spirit.” Ficht, Moon and the rest of the guys can’t wait to start playing live with the songs they have prepared over the last year. Their performance Saturday afternoon at the Bend Roots festival will be their first public performance as AM Clouds. They look forward to performing live and meeting other bands in the community. If all goes well, they’ll get some good local shows lined up in the near future. Want to know more about the ‘90s-esque, indie rock performed by AM Clouds?

Modest Mouse Delivers
Indie rockers close out the Les Schwab Amphitheater concert season with high energy despite late start By Anne Pick
WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / September 28, 2017 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE
Indie rockers Modest Mouse tears it up at the Les Schwab Amphitheater on Friday, Sept. 22. Photos by Johnny Archer.
he last time I saw Portland-based indie rock powerhouse Modest Mouse, “Float On” had cracked the mainstream Top 40 and been nominated for a Grammy award. It was 2005 and the height of success for their album, “Good News For People Who Love Bad News.” That show happened during my freshman year at the University of Oregon. My best friend and I took the bus from campus to the McDonald Theater in Eugene where Modest Mouse brought the roof down. This past Friday night, Sept. 22, Modest Mouse and Built to Spill converged on the same stage for an indie rock throwdown during the last concert of the summer season at the Les Schwab Amphitheater. Nearly 13 years later, Modest Mouse brought the metaphorical roof down at the Amphitheater. Despite starting more than 30 minutes late, Modest Mouse hit the stage to chanting and a roar of applause. Lead singer Isaac Brock immediately took to the microphone and thanked the crowd for their patience and started in on the title track from their latest album, “Strangers to Ourselves.” They followed it up with “3rd Planet” and then hit an amped up stride with the next three songs. “Tiny Cities Made of Ashes,” one of my favorite Modest Mouse songs from 2000’s “The Moon & Antarctica” album, pumped up the energy with the vibrating bass line, shout singing and the talk of “drinkin’, drinkin’, drinkin’, drinkin’ Coca Coca Cola.” “Bury Me With It” spoke to the weight
on all of your shoulders and led perfectly into another one of the band’s biggest hits — “Dashboard.” As soon as the intro started, the crowd burst out in cheers, singing along and dancing to the jam. Brock still has the bravado to command the stage and entertain alongside his extremely talented bandmates. Watching from the front row, you could see the smile on guitarist Jim Fairchild’s face as he totally shred. Lisa Molinaro impressed me and everyone else I’ve spoken to since the show. The multi-instrumentalist showed her chops on the viola and had a glowing, positive energy on stage. After returning to the stage for the encore, Modest Mouse closed the show with their biggest hit, “Float On.” My friends and I had already started walking out by the time the song, “Float On” started, but stopped in our tracks and danced it out under a streetlamp outside of the Amphitheater with a stranger as her young son shook his head in embarrassment. Modest Mouse put on a great show, often meeting and, during some songs, exceeding expectations. Nearly 13 years after the first time I caught the band live, they continue to prove why Brock’s signature voice, catchy lyrics and raw energy have made Modest Mouse one of the biggest and most successful bands in indie rock. I wish they would have played “The World At Large,” but I guess I’ll just have to cross my fingers for next time. SW

A Beacon of Light for the Homeless, the Addicted and the Distressed
hen I first walked into Pfeifer and Associates, I thought I had mistakenly gone into the tattoo shop next door. Funky, brightly colored walls, industrial counters and smiley, pierced and tattooed folk greeted my confused self. Sandwiched behind the Domino Room, this unassuming office space is home to bubbly, no-nonsense Sally Pfeifer, owner and executive director of Central Oregon’s largest drug and alcohol outpatient treatment provider — serving the underserved adults with alcohol and drug addiction. As a career certified drug and alcohol counselor from Washington state, Pfeifer has seen the gamut of issues throughout her 30 years in the industry, realizing homelessness was a crucial component to many of her clients struggling with their addictions. “Housing is key,” begins Pfeifer as she sits back in her office. “How can you work on yourself when you’re cold, in the bushes and hungry? I don’t have the magic answer, but I do know that the best recipe for success is the Housing First Model — it’s used in Canada, in Europe, it basically been proven to wipe out homelessness.” Pfeifer is referring to what the National Alliance to End Homelessness calls an assistance program providing permanent housing, which provides a platform for individuals to pursue personal goals and improve their quality of life. Realizing there were lengthy waiting lists, no permanent homeless shelters and no affordable housing solutions in sight, Pfeifer, with the help of a few
other generous individuals, opened their first transitional house in 2015. She now has eight, serving 153 individuals, 49 of whom are children. “These homes are about 4,500 square foot, gender specific, clean and sober spaces with a live-in staff member and we don’t do any treatment there,” she says, “... on average, residents spend about nine months there.” Mothers live with other mothers, and men live with other men and there’s no drug or alcohol consumption allowed, safeguarded with routine drug tests. Tenants are responsible for their $500 a month rent, but Pfeifer secures the lease, the first and last month’s rent, security deposits and utilities. “It costs about $5,000 to set one of these up, provided I can even find a house to do it in.” Landlords, and for the most part, neighbors, are fully aware and supportive of the transitional space, with Pfeifer noting she’s actually receiving calls from landowners wanting to participate in the program. “There’s a stigma surrounding transitional housing, but in the three years we’ve had them, we’ve had only one emergency room visit… and no police visits. That’s virtually unheard of in this community. So landlords, realizing this, are starting to come around and offering up homes, though in this market, it’s nearly impossible to find
something to rent.” Pfeifer says she’s housing more homeless than the Bethlehem Inn. The mother of three says she’s the visionary, but needs help with the execution. “I’m horrible at one step at a time. I can see what should happen, but if I’m at step A, I need help with B and C to get to D… thankfully I have amazing people and staff surrounding me that get me there.” In fact, many of Pfeifer’s staff members are ex-treatment members—a testament to her success. Her vision for the future? Permanent housing camps such as those found in Portland. Pulling out a copy of “Tent City Urbanism, From Self Organized Camps to Tiny House Villages,” by Andrew Heben, she says a hybrid model is what Central Oregon needs. “Our dream is a three-tier approach,” she says, her passion evident. “So you’d have permanent campers who would manage the camp from day to day, then a second section of campers coming in and out and staying a bit longer, and
then sleeping pods for those needing immediate shelter.” Pfeifer wants the sleeping pods to offer 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep for campers. “Think about if you don’t get enough sleep… it leads to mental health issues, attitude shifts, relapses because you’re not feeling good... And most of these people never get any interrupted sleep when they’re on the street.” The going will no doubt be tough. But with her nonprofit, Sagewood Sanctuary, moving through the process of becoming registered, she hopes a permanent homeless camp, complete with mental health services is feasible in the future. “Portland runs one for as little as $1,800 a month… solving the homeless issue in Bend is not inconceivable.” Pfeifer declares, “We need to take this community from outside of the fringes and include them in the solution. They’re in our backyard… and everyone deserves a right to survive.” Check out Pfeifer’s efforts at OregonTreatment.net. SW

Helen Lessick’s Trees at COCC’s Pence Pinckney Gallery in October Art is often at its best when it allows us to look at something we’ve seen endless times before in a whole new way—allowing us to feel like we are understanding it from within ourselves instead of outside ourselves. Helen Lessick, a Los Angeles-based sculptor and installation artist, captures this elegantly for us within the subject of trees in her upcoming
show, “Canopy." This past summer marked the 30th Anniversary of Lessick’s permanent installation in Portland’s Hoyt Arboretum. Called “House For Summer,” it’s a living sculpture comprised of 15 Himalayan birch trees. Her upcoming exhibition at The Pence Pickney Gallery builds off this work, and will include an outdoor display entitled “The Arbor Ballet” allowing trees to become the dancers, accompanied by a live cello performance. The show calls attention to the more than 80 species of trees living on the COCC campus. Lessick will participate in a moderated artist talk with COCC Forest Resources professor Rebecca Franklin and retired City of Portland forest manager Fred Nilsen. “This is required viewing for audiences interested in art
and ecology,” said Bill Hoppe, COCC art professor. As the seasons begin to change and the trees dance in their autumn glory, now is the perfect time to allow Lessick’s view of living sculpture fill you up and open your eyes to the wonders of the natural world. SW

Central Oregon vineyard proves region can make great wine by Lisa Sipe
and 2016 that FHC could harvest some of their grapes. While they were waiting for their vines to mature, they purchased grapes from other Oregon growers. This will be the first year they have a really successful crop, the Grossmanns tell me. Waiting for its own crop hasn’t kept FHC from producing award-winning wines. Among the awards: a Gold Medal for the 2013 Vignoles from The Sunset International Wine Competition, where the wine was up against 6,000 competitors. FHC also won a platinum award for the LaCrescent from the Northwest Wine and Food Competition in Portland. To get a taste of the wines, head to the vineyard, a gorgeous property offering incredible views of the Sisters mountain range. The tasting room has rounded German architecture, and the interior’s wooden garage doors open to the outdoors on beautiful days. There’s also an elegant garden with a pond, waterfalls and a patio made for long table wine dinners. In addition to flights and wines by the glass, order lunch from the simple, flavorful menu created by Chef Luke Huntzinger. Driven by local ingredients, the offerings include seasonal salads, polenta, wood-fired pizzas and desserts. I tried the heirloom tomato salad with housemate ricotta, arugula, crispy croutons and a bacon vinaigrette. The sweet, in-season tomatoes were bright and tangy and the croutons added the right amount of crunch to the salad. It reminded me of a deconstructed bruschetta.
Patience has paid off as grapes are ready for harvest at Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards.
Next I sampled the wood-fired pizza, ordering half seasonal and and half veggie. The pizza’s bubbly crust was super crispy and full-flavored. As I took bites from each type of pizza it was really hard to pick a favorite. The veggie had tangy tomato sauce, mozzarella, roasted bell pepper, local squash, creamy herbed cheese and a Frontenac peach reduction. The seasonal pizza, with different ingredients, had the same effect on my palate. It was topped with pumpkin puree, asiago cheese, sage forward house made sausage, fresh blueberries and mustard greens. My tastebuds were pushed back and forth between the sweet and savory flavors. I also tried the pumpkin tart for dessert. With our cold shift in weather it seemed like the perfect time to eat pumpkin. I expected the dessert to be a hand-made version of a pumpkin spice
latte, but I was wrong. It was much more interesting. The tart was topped with ricotta and filled with whole, roasted pieces of pumpkin. The flavor in the spices bloomed after I tasted the squash. It was a lovely way to end my meal. This is a great time of year to visit the vineyard, the vines are heavy with ripe fruit. Keep an eye on their event calendar, they are expected to be harvesting any day now—an opportunity to join in the harvest while also getting some delightful lunch and wine.

VOLUME 21 ISSUE 39 / September 28, 2017 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
hen they took their daughter to look at colleges, Cindy and Roger Grossmann got a very short introduction to Central Oregon. But like many transplants’ first visits, it made enough of an impact on them that years later, after selling their Chicago home, it was here they sought acreage on which to retire on. The idea was to find a 20-acre property—but the Grossmanns ended up falling in love with a piece of land 312 acres in size, in Terrebonne—now known as Faith Hope & Charity Vineyards. So much for retirement! From her resort and property development background, Cindy Grossman knew it had good farm land and water rights. She dreamed about growing grapes—a romantic crop known for its agrotourism, or ability to bring visitors to a farm or ranch. The Grossmanns had no previous wine making or vineyard experience so their first task was to educate themselves, working with Oregon State University and the Southern Oregon Wine Institute. The growing season in Central Oregon is really short, with the beginning and end seeing freezing temperatures overnight, so the Grossmans found a cold-hardy French-American hybrid grape that thrives in the region. A major benefit to growing grapes in Central Oregon: you don’t have to worry about mold and insects, so FHC doesn’t have to spray its vines. Five years after buying the property, the couple planted their first grapes. Wine making takes patience. After the 2010 planting it wasn’t until 2015

Crux offers their fresh hops in three handy packages.
n a way, it’s a blessing that the Hood River Hops Fest wound up being delayed. Not a blessing for Gorge residents, given that the delay’s caused by the lingering Eagle Creek fire and the continued dicey situation along I-84 between Portland and points east. But certainly a blessing for fans of freshhop beer, since it lets them savor this uniquely Pacific Northwest beer season for that little bit longer. Hood River’s festival will feature wet-hop beers from 41 breweries in the Northwest, including a few Bend joints including Cascade Lakes, RiverBend and Worthy. Other local joints, such as 10 Barrel, Silver Moon and Sunriver Brewing, are showing off their own freshies right now, both at their taprooms and at Fresh Shops on the Pond, an all-day fest held on Bend Brewing Co’s outdoor space Oct. 14. The early fall, indeed, is the best time of the beer for people who want their hops to be as floral, bitter, dank and fresh-off-the-farm as possible. These can range from the altogether pleasant and approachable, such as Green Haze from Ninkasi in Eugene, to the more avant-garde, such as the OktoberFresh beer from Portland’s Zoiglhaus that combines the German style with Centennial hops from the Willamette Valley. Ancestry also has Wheezin’ the Juice out now, a 7.3 percent IPA made exclusively with Ekuanot hops (formerly called Equinox)—but given that hop varietal’s harsh, sort-of-medicinal taste when riding solo, that might be too much (too fresh?) of a good thing.
With the rise in fresh-hop popularity, a couple of regional breweries are going all-in on their offerings. Crux, in particular, is worth a peek—it’s not only planning three releases for the season, it’s also canning them for distribution across the state. Dr. Jack is named after the creator of the Cascade hop, and as expected, it’s an IPA packed with them, added to the brew kettle right after picking for maximum floralness. Crystal Zwickle features the Crystal hop, which is more of an aromatic type, and it’s framed the hop around a spicy pale ale clocking in at 6 percent. Finally, Way Two Fresh is a near-10 percent imperial IPA made with Mosaic hops from the Willamette Valley and Simcoe hops from Yakima, both harvested on the same morning and put into the brew that afternoon. That’s a lot of truckin’. Deschutes is bound to have a half-dozen or so of their own through the season at their Bond Street pub, but also be on the lookout for Fremont Brewing, whose fresh-hop releases have grown in scope year over year. In 2017, the Seattle-based outfit is planning a series of three beers for sequential release—the first with Centennial hops, the second Amarillo, and the third Citra. This culminates in the on-site release of Cowiche Canyon Fresh Hop Ale, made with organically-grown hops from outside Yakima, to which Fremont has exclusive rights. Whether in Bend or elsewhere, beer fans are spoiled for fresh hop choice. Hard to believe that stout season is coming up so soon... SW

WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / September 28, 2017 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE
40 AMERICAN ASSASSIN: Based on the series of bestselling novels by Vince Flynn, “American Assassin” is the origin story of terrorist killer Mitch Rapp. The movie has a few good action scenes, but ultimately takes itself much too seriously to be any fun. Still, Michael Keaton is always worth watching even when the movies he stars in are kinda boring. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema
LEAP!: It's 1879 in Paris and a young orphan
BRAD'S STATUS: Starring the quite underrat-
THE LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE: I'd like to assume there's more to this than just ninjas and legos, but the trailers don't make much of a case for that. Featuring a voice cast including Jackie Chan, Abbi Jacobson, Kumail Nanjiani and Fred Armisen, it should at least be a pleasure to listen to, even if none of it makes any sense. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema
ed Ben Stiller, “Brad's Status” follows a middleaged man reconnecting with his college friends who all initially appear to be more successful than he is. From the normally acidic director/writer Mike White, “Brad's Status” should be an incisive look into the things that truly matter in life. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX
COLUMBUS: Starring John Cho and Haley Lu Richardson, “Columbus” is focused on an unlikely romance between a man stranded in Columbus, Indiana and a lovely local librarian. One of the most critically acclaimed movies of the year. 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. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX FRIEND REQUEST: When a case of cyber-bullying goes too far, a young woman gets stalked by the ghost of a creepy goth teen whose death she helped bring about. Facebook on any given day looks scarier than this one. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX
girl dreams of being a ballerina while never letting her plucky, can-do spirit die. Following your dreams is a nice message, and with vocal performances by Elle Fanning, Mel Brooks, Carly Rae Jepsen and Kate McKinnon, this probably deserved more press than it actually received. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX
MAUDIE: 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. Sisters Movie House
MOTHER!: With word of people furiously storming out of this film all across the country, “Mother!” is controversial to say the least. Starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, the film is actually a deeply disturbing masterpiece about femininity, the price of creation, parenthood and adoration. You might hate it, but it will certainly give you something to think about.Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX NEITHER WOLF NOR DOG: A road
ing Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds as badasses trading quips as they shoot at bad guys should make for an entertaining diversion, even as the reviews come in as pretty terrible. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema
movie through Lakota territory, this dramedy gives an incisive look into the modern Native American lifestyle while telling a simple story quite beautifully. Anyone with even a passing interest in Native American culture should definitely catch this lovely little film. Sisters Movie House

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING: We know
THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD: Watch-
missing a Reese Witherspoon romantic comedy until we had a new one on our doorstep. She plays a single mom who gets into a relationship with a man in his 20s, which upsets her natural order of things. The film looks like a charming Nancy Meyers throwback, so there's no real downside unless you're averse to chick flicks. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House
INGRID GOES WEST: This is a brutal black
comedy about Instagram celebrities, obsession and the darkest flavors of love. Aubrey Plaza is on a roll with her choices lately as she's adding many different shades to her typically caustic and bitter wheelhouse. You'll laugh just as hard as you cringe. Tin Pan Theater
you like things that float and clowns with giant gaping maws? Then you'll love the latest and greatest adaptation of Stephen King's epic horror extravaganza, “IT.” The film focuses on a group of middle school outcasts who have to fight against an ageless demonic presence that manifests itself as a horrifying clown named Pennywise. A genuinely fun horror flick that will please fans of all ages. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinemas
KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE:
There's nothing like a sequel to a surprisingly good movie to remove all goodwill for the original. At 141 minutes long, “The Golden Circle” has plenty of opportunities to prove that it's as good as the first one, but is ultimately so overstuffed that it feels like a tonally schizophrenic mess. Better luck next time. See full review on p41. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema
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
STRONGER: From David Gordon Green, the fantastically talented director of “George Washington” and “Pineapple Express,” comes the true story of Jeff Bauman, a man who lost his legs during the Boston Marathon bombing and has to accept the new circumstances. Bring tissues. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE TRIP TO SPAIN: The next film in
the hilarious series of foodie comedies from Michael Winterbottom and stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. Make sure to eat a great meal beforehand or else you'll be sitting there with your mouth watering the entire time you're violently laughing at the screen. Tin Pan Theater
WHOSE STREETS: This documentary
about the uprising in Ferguson will have audiences gripping their seats from the sheer intensity of the footage on display. When the politics are drained out of the issue, “Whose Streets” shows the viewer that we're really just fighting each other. Tin Pan Theater
WIND RIVER: The directorial debut of Taylor Sheridan, the writer behind “Sicario” and “Hell or High Water,” sees Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen as law enforcement agents who team up to hunt a serial killer across a frozen Indian reservation in Wyoming. “Wind River” will stick to your bones like whiskey.

Bingeworthy: I Hear Dead Things
An addiction to true crime, movies so bad they’re great, and Netflix spray paints its way to our heart. By Jared Rasic
about this week, so let’s dive right into it.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE STORY
In the run-up to BendFilm, a word from a local film lover Jodie Barram, director of fundraising for The Tower Theatre “Film has the ability to impact my mood, reflect my interests, challenge me, expand my horizons and experience ideas and places I might not otherwise get to. It’s as diverse as I am! I love that with film I can learn through documentaries, be absorbed into science fiction, feel the ups and downs of a romance, cheer for the underdog in a drama, laugh out loud with a comedy, get an adrenaline rush in an action-adventure, travel to times and places both real and imagined, and find inspiration in ALL genres. That’s awesome! One of my favorite BendFilm inspirations was the movie, "Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines. It was at BendFilm when I was still in public office. Celebrating various ways people, and particularly women, show up in the world is incredibly important to me. We are multi-faceted individuals. To quote Diane von Furstenberg, I believe ‘We all have a Wonder Woman inside us.’” *This is one feature in a series of stories from filmmakers and film lovers about how storytelling enhances our lives. #ItsAllAboutTheStory #IndieFilm #BendFilm
14th Annual BendFilm Festival Thurs. Oct. 12- Sun. Oct. 15 Various Bend locations Bendfilm.org
It’s gonna be...hard...to get all that spray paint off.
In Pod We Trust: If you’re like me then you love hearing witty people talk about dead things. When your heart of darkness is searching for the perfect show about serial killers, unsolved mysteries and things too gruesome to understand, then “My Favorite Murder” is the podcast you haven’t been searching for. Hosted by comedian Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, “My Favorite Murder” focuses on different murders and true crime stories each week, delving into facts and speculation without succumbing to ghoulishness. They take the stories seriously, but add just enough levity to keep the episodes fast paced and always fascinating. There are other great true crime podcasts including “Hollywood Crime Scene,” “Pretty Scary” and “Sword and Scale,” but “My Favorite Murder” strikes the best tone for my ear holes. But seriously, you should listen to all of these.
DVD and BLU: This week we are #blessed with an embarrassment of riches including the underrated shark movie, “47 Meters Down” and a delightfully metal demon
possession movie, “The Devil’s Candy,” but next week is even better. On Oct. 3, we get the hilariously terrible (but better than the last one) “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” Since it turned in a net profit of almost $300 million, I guess we’re not sick of Johnny Depp wearing hats yet. We also get “The Book of Henry,” a movie so terrible it got the director fired from making the “Star Wars: Episode IX.” Seriously, this movie about a precocious young genius has to be seen to be believed. If you don’t want to just laugh at terrible things, the gorgeously made “A Ghost Story” is also set for release. This is a film that walks such a fine line between profound and pretentious that it’s hard to judge it without multiple viewings. Truly unforgettable.
Bingeworthy: I know deep down you really want to watch the new Jeff Dunham comedy special, but instead I would like to recommend “American Vandal,” the greatest mockumentary series about spray painted dicks you will ever see. It’s hilarious, ridiculous and extremely binge-able.
There’s also the new season of some show I’ve never heard of called “Got Ham,” which sounds like a twist on... wait for it… There’s also the new season of the show “Gotham,” which tells the story of a young Batman and a sexy and badass Commissioner Gordon. It’s just as campy as the 1960s “Batman,” so take that for what it’s worth.
Homegrown: In case you feel like actually getting outside and interacting with other human people, but are still in the mood for a movie, may I suggest AMZ Productions “Reservoir Dogs Live!” It’s a gender-reversed reading of the classic film with some of the finest talent in Central Oregon. Only grownups allowed because of all the blood, swearing and awesomeness. Reservoir Dogs Live

New fly fishing apparel brand offers a fresh take on fishing gear, claiming“just say no” to all beige, all the time. By Michelle Scott
like, ‘You’re going to get into fly fishing,’” he said. “I found one of my grandfather’s old rods, and that’s what I learned on. “I immediately really liked the sport,” Trautman said with a smile. “It took me about four years to become decent—and I don’t even know if ‘decent’ is the right word—to be somewhat proficient in it.” What followed Trautman’s newly kindled love for fly fishing was the need for gear. What he saw in various fly fishing shops didn’t wow him; so much beige, so much of the time. Seeing a gap in the market for cool fly fishing paraphernalia, Trautman began to develop his own take on what fly fishing gear should look like. “The whole concept started with the logo. It’s the first thing I came up with.” Trautman said. “There’s enough of a demand for a different fly fishing brand, and the first thing I’ve gotta do is create a logo that embodies a younger generation, people crossing over from snowboarding and skiing and other more action sports.” Once the logo was locked down—a bold bone fish-esque line drawing, it was another two years of on-again offagain product development. The hurdle was finding the right factory to bring Trautman’s first product to life: colorful flat-brimmed hats. “I’m pretty happy with what I came up with. I think that it’s been a good platform to build off of,” he said.
Nathan Trautman tosses one of his Traut Co. hats in the air, showcasing its cork patch and Traut Co. logo.
Traut Co.’s first milestone passed this July with the official launch of flatbrimmed hats in Bend and Redmond fly fishing stores. Embracing the Traut Co. motto, “Just say no to beige,” Trautman designed the flat-brimmed hats in four colorways, all embellished with an embroidered cork logo-slash-patch. “Part of fly fishing is sticking your hooks into lots of different things, and chewing up whatever you stick those hooks into,” explained Trautman. “Some of that is actually an appeal, it’s kind of a prestige thing to have a chewed up hat on the river. I knew that
if I figured out a way to design a hat that functioned with a pincushion on it, that people would use it and then it would be useful on the river.” For Traut Co.’s next product, Trautman hopes to develop a hybrid long-sleeved sun hoodie to keep fly fishers cool and out of the sun when on the river.

San Juan Islands: Beat the Crowds With an Autumn Kayak Adventure As is the case with most scenic destinations in the Northwest, lifelong kayaker Geoff Frank says, “Post Labor Day, the tourist crowds in the San Juans dissipate and the Islands are much more enjoyable.” Frank has guided personal and professional trips in Puget Sound for decades, noting the access and views of Washington’s rocky archipelago can’t be beat for a multi-day excursion within a day’s driving distance of Bend. Ferries transport mainland passengers to four of the 172 named islands and reefs in the chain. During most excursions, Frank opts to depart from Washington Park to Orcas and
from there, island hop. Sucia and Patos islands are some of his favorite spots. Frank cautions water enthusiasts to consider the skills needed before embarking on a multi-day kayaking journey. Necessary knowledge includes
nautical navigation including reading maps and charts (currents, tides and wind), following a bearing, keeping close track of weather fluctuations, comfort paddling on the open sea, being able to self rescue in a worst-case scenario and fitness level. If you haven’t the time to plan a
paddle trip in the San Juans this fall, start planning now for next year. Check out the Tumalocreek.com website for itinerary details and packing lists, or, sign up for one of Tumalo Creek’s four and five-day guided tours, where gourmet meals are provided and trusted veterans handle logistics and safety.

hen people leave Bend to stake their flags elsewhere, some take a twinkle in their eye, one that reflects time spent outside enjoying the high desert. For others, the Bend way of life rubs off on them, never letting them forget the Central Oregon way of life. For Nathan Trautman, living in Bend for four years brought him to the rivers, where he waded into a love for fly fishing. Bend also inspired an idea that would lead to the development of a new kind of fly fishing apparel brand: Traut Co. (pronounced like trout). Fly fishing runs in the Trautman family. “When I grew up, my grandfather was a fly fisher, and he made his own rods,” said Trautman. “There were pictures of him with fish all over the house. That’s kind of how I learned about it.” Now a Portland area resident, Trautman credits his time in Bend as the driver for creating Traut Co. “It took me a while to figure out the name. My last name is Trautman, and I just couldn’t get away from it,” he said with a laugh. “When you have the last name Trautman, and you’re trying to start a fly fishing apparel company, it makes sense to incorporate it somehow.” Trautman fondly recalls the waters outside of Bend, where he first learned how to fly fish using one of his grandfather’s rods. “One of my friends, who I skied with, took me out to the river and was

Natural World Saving Sage-Grouse
Have a question about the natural world of Central Oregon? Send your questions to email@example.com.
By Jim Anderson 47
Retired Bend MD, Stu Garrett and his wife, Hilary, attach wire markers to barbed wire fences around guzzlers to keep sage-grouse from colliding with the fences.
conduct lek counts. A “lek,” is the geographic place on the ground where males of specific areas gather to show their stuff. Perhaps the most significant impact on the Greater sage-grouse populations in the Great Sandy Desert region was the destruction of thousands upon thousands acres of sagebrush (of all species) for conversion into cow pastures. The worst part of that disaster to our sagebrush country and prime sage-grouse habitat is the agency that carried it out used chemical herbicides to kill the sage brush, and then planted non-native grasses to create cow pasture. Today, the BLM would like us to believe western juniper crowding the habitat of the sagebrush that’s the villain. While juniper isn’t the best place for grouse, it is an excellent shelter for deer and elk when the temperature drops to 30-below, and the berries are what the robins from Canada need for food. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) makes an interesting statement in their information regarding hunting upland game birds. To wit: “For upland game birds that live in areas with adequate habitat, population size and mortality rate are affected little by regulated hunting. Protection of game birds from hunting will not allow the population to increase. Because of the normally high mortality rate, even without hunting, and because hunting typically is compensatory, upland game birds cannot be “stockpiled” from one year to another. Thus, area or season closures for populations in good habitat are not needed and do little or no good.” It is the opinion of most sage-grouse biologists and
managers that the habitat for grouse is not “adequate” and never will be until much of the pasture land on the wild lands is once again sagebrush. Yes, of course there is that segment of the population that suffers death and destruction from weather and predators, but charging a fee for hunters to kill additional grouse seems like “overkill.” Last year, Oregon sportsman killed over 800 grouse legally in answer to ODFW’s drawing for tags. ODFW needs the money from the tags, but doing so added more dead grouse to the other numbers who perished from the usual harshness of winter and predators. According to the final report of the Oregon Greater Sage-Grouse Population Monitoring: 2017 Annual Report, field surveys indicate the sage-grouse spring breeding population in Oregon declined by -7.7 percent between 2016 and 2017, dropping to 20,510 estimated individuals (±1,560 individuals). Magnitude of population trend varied by BLM district analyzed, ranging from a -17.1 percent decline in the Burns District, to a 1.1 percent increase in the Vale District. Like it or not, wildlife biologists (not employed by ODFW) suggest it’s past time to stop killing sage grouse for sport and to balance the budget. That said, please give serious thought to volunteering to help in lek counts and joining ECAS volunteers in helping to make what habitat sage-grouse have left to be more friendly and safe. Our greater sage-grouse can’t say thank you, but a great many volunteer citizen scientists and accredited wildlife biologists will tip their hats to you. If anyone is attracted to the idea of going out with the ECAS volunteers for the next fence-marking project, mark it down on your calendar for Oct. 14, and give Stu a call: 541-389-6981. SW
VOLUME 21 ISSUE 39 / September 28, 2017 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
ne of the most rewarding wildlife projects I’m involved with, from about the middle of June to February, is the East Cascade Audubon Society’s Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Project. From February to the middle of June, my life is dedicated to helping the Oregon Eagle Foundation know more about what’s going on with Oregon’s Golden Eagles. OEF is under the leadership of raptor biologist Frank Isaacs, who saved the bald eagle from extinction in Oregon, while ECAS Greater Sage-Grouse Conservation Project is under the leadership of retired Bend MD, Stu Garret. Between Frank and Stu my life is continually rewarding and never boring. About a month ago Stu got several ECAS members involved with a project carried out by a joint effort of the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife, trapping mosquitoes in the Brothers/Millican area to see if West Nile Virus was present. Thankfully, that project turned out negative for WNV. Just recently, 10 ECAS members were again involved with sage-grouse conservation, this time installing about 2,500 markers on barbed wire fences that protect wildlife water guzzlers from livestock encroachment. BLM wildlife biologists thought the top two strands of the fences posed a serious threat to sage grouse as they flew in for water. The markers were the brainchild of Tom Lawler, who kept the old Central Oregon Audubon Society alive and helped give the organization the new name of ECAS. Tom found some narrow plastic siding, cut it into 3-inch lengths, glued reflecting tape to the flat surface and then clipped the piece over the barbed wire. It took the ECAS team about a half day to travel from Bend to the guzzler sites, place the short reflectors to the top two wires and get home before the next rainstorm. While working on the tagging project, the volunteers were rewarded with the sight of 17 pronghorns coming from the guzzler, one sage grouse on its way for a drink, seven cows who would have loved to get to the guzzlers for a drink—but would have destroyed it doing so—and a magnificent “school ma’arm” Ponderosa pine nearby the guzzler site. (A thought occurs to me… There are certain of us living in Central Oregon, who—when traveling our outback roads—have the insatiable desire to shoot signs so full of holes they’re unreadable. Please, if you know any of those sharpshooters, ask them to fight the desire to blast away at the newly installed markers. Those small plastic plates make the difference between lifeand-death for the Sage-Grouse.) The Greater sage-grouse inhabiting the sage brush seas of Central Oregon’s Great Sandy Desert are in trouble. In similar habitat in Canada there are fewer than 100 of the same species left in the provinces where they once lived. I have yet to hear the reasons for the terrible declines in habitat. The sage-grouse of Canada went into decline and never stopped vanishing; the sage grouse in this part of the country started out that way, but conservationists and hunters alike stepped in and made efforts to stop the decline, and are working hard, hoping for victory. More and more is getting to be known about the needs of sage-grouse, thanks to volunteers helping to

How the Equifax Breach Could Mess Up a Home Purchase
are a few other recommended actions: 1. Activate two-factor authentication on financial and email accounts. Two-factor authentication is an important extra layer of safety. It requires not just a password but a second element, such as a code texted to your phone to which a crook does not have access. They recommend implementing this on all of your existing banking, savings, credit card, home equity line of credit, and other financial accounts that offer it. You can also download an authenticator app such as Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator, which generates the codes without the use of texting, which can be intercepted. 2. Place a fraud alert on your account. A fraud alert is different from a credit freeze in that it places a notice on your credit report that warns both current and prospective lenders that they must take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting credit, opening a new account, etc. 3. Use multiple passwords and save them in a password app such as LastPass which prevents using the same password for multiple accounts that can provide a master key for hackers. 4. Visit the FCC website to try the tools for your specific phone’s operating system. The FCC Smartphone Security Checker is a great tool.

ou may have heard about the Equifax breach, which compromised the information of about 143 million Americans. For consumers trying to obtain a mortgage, this could have serious implications such as delays in loan verification due to additional safeguards that might be implemented. The biggest impact is if scammers use stolen information to obtain debt, credit cards, etc. that affect your credit score. Another area to be watchful of is your 401(k) account, which many use toward their down payments. According to a recent article in Consumer Reports, 401(k) accounts are not insured in the same way as bank and savings accounts for protection from fraud. They encourage you to call your 401(k) plan provider and other investment managers to learn their fraud protection policies, as they can vary from company to company. Fidelity and Vanguard have voluntary online fraud policies that promise to reimburse assets stolen in unauthorized online transactions. If you haven’t already, the fastest way to protect yourself from the Equifax data breach is to place a security freeze on your credit files at the big three credit reporting bureaus. Consumers should apply the freeze to Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. You can also apply a freeze to a lesser-known consumer reporting agency, Innovis. In addition to the credit freeze, here

IF YOU’VE NEVER EXPERIENCED
THE BEND DAC, TRY IT FREE FOR 2 WEEKS
I’ve been dating this girl for just over a month, and she never offers to pay for anything. I was okay with this in the beginning, as I saw it as a courtship thing. I guess I wonder whether this points to problems down the road with her not being a real partner, pulling her weight, etc. How do I politely broach this without blowing up the blooming relationship? —Feeling Used

This woman lives paycheck to paycheck. Unfortunately, it’s your paycheck. At this point, you’re probably musing on the perfect birthday gift for her — a sparkly little Hello Kitty crowbar she can use to pry open her wallet. However, mystifying as it is that she has never squeaked out the words “This one’s on me!” consider that if there’s one thing heterosexual men and women have in common these days, it’s confusion over who exactly is supposed to pay on dates. The problem driving the confusion is a sort of Godzilla vs. Mothra clash between age-old evolved emotions (still driving us today) and modern-day beliefs about male and female equality. As I explain with some frequency (per big cross-cultural studies by evolutionary psychologist David Buss, among others), women evolved to seek male partners who show they are willing and able to invest in any children they might have. Whether the particular woman actually wants children is immaterial — as in, of zero interest to her emotions. Anthropologist John Marshall Townsend observes from his research and others’ that women’s emotions evolved to act as a sort of police force for a man’s level of commitment — making women feel bad when the investment isn’t there. This leads women to either push a man to invest or ditch him and find a man who will. Men coevolved to expect this, meaning that men evolved to try to appeal to the ladies by showing (or successfully faking) generosity, high status, and earning power. Many people mistakenly assume evolved adaptations like this will change with the times, as in, “Ye Olde Evolved Emotions, I’d like to introduce you to Gloria Steinem and the women’s movement.” Unfortunately, evolution is not a lickety-split process — especially when it comes to our psychological engine panel. In fact, anthropologist Donald Symons explains that “natural selection takes hundreds or thousands of generations” (generations being
20- to 30-year periods) “to fashion any complex cognitive adaptation.” So women, even now — even highly successful women who can comfortably pay for their own meals (and everyone else’s in the restaurant) — have their emotions pushing them to look for a man who shows generosity, as well as the ability to “provide.” This is reflected in the findings by sociologist Janet Lever and her colleagues from a survey of heterosexual men and women — 17,067 “unmarried and non-cohabitating” heterosexuals, ages 18 to 65 — on the extent to which they embrace or reject the traditional “man pays” dating behavior. (Surprisingly, millennials’ responses were generally pretty close percentage-wise to those of older adults — mostly within a few percentage points.) A snapshot of the responses from women: Overall, 57 percent of women said yes to “I always offer to help pay even on the first date.” But check out the mixed feelings: Many women (39 percent) wished men would reject their offer to pay. But many (40 percent of women) said they are bothered when men don’t accept their money. Hello, confusing financial stew! Men’s responses were similarly contradictory. Overall, more than half the men — 64 percent — said that after the first few dates, the woman should help pay expenses, and nearly half (44 percent) said they would stop dating a woman who never offers to pay. Yet, men overwhelmingly — that is, 76 percent of men — feel guilty if they don’t pay the bill on dates. So, the reality is, like all of these conflicted men, some Amy Alkon women just aren’t sure where the lines are on whether to chip in and when. (Of course, some women are conveniently unsure.) As for this woman you’re seeing, it is possible that she’s waiting until you two are “exclusive” to start picking up the tab. Instead of assuming the worst, do two things: First, observe and reflect on her behavior and attitudes — so far and as you get to know her — and see whether they suggest an interest in partnership or princess-ship. Second, simply ask: “Hey, we’ve been dating for a while, and it seems like we should start sharing the costs. Where do you stand on that?” See what she says and take it from there — tempting as it is to opt for a passive-aggressive approach, like panhandling outside the restaurant where you’re meeting her: “Hey, Amber. You’re early!… Meet ya inside. Just trying to beg enough for the tip.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In accordance with the astrological omens, I invite you to take extra good care of yourself during the next three weeks. Do whatever it takes to feel safe and protected and resilient. Ask for the support you need, and if the people whose help you solicit can’t or won’t give it to you, seek elsewhere. Provide your body with more than the usual amount of healthy food, deep sleep, tender touch, and enlivening movement. Go see a psychotherapist or counselor or good listener every single day if you want. And don’t you dare apologize or feel guilty for being such a connoisseur of self-respect and self-healing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A queen bee may keep mating until she gathers 70 million sperm from many different drones. When composing my horoscopes, I aim to cultivate a metaphorically comparable receptivity. Long ago I realized that all of creation is speaking to me all the time; I recognized that everyone I encounter is potentially a muse or teacher. If I hope to rustle up the oracles that are precisely suitable for your needs, I have to be alert to the possibility that they may arrive from unexpected directions and surprising sources. Can you handle being that open to influence, Sagittarius? Now is a favorable time to expand your capacity to be fertilized.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re approaching a rendezvous with prime time. Any minute now you could receive an invitation to live up to your hype or fulfill your promises to yourself -- or both. This test is likely to involve an edgy challenge that is both fun and daunting, both liberating and exacting. It will have the potential to either steal a bit of your soul or else heal an ache in your soul. To ensure the healing occurs rather than the stealing, do your best to understand why the difficulty and the pleasure are both essential.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 1901, physician Duncan MacDougall carried out experiments that led him to conclude that the average human soul weighs 21 grams. Does his claim have any merit? That question is beyond my level of expertise. But if he was right, then I’m pretty sure your soul has bulked up to at least 42 grams in the past few weeks. The work you’ve been doing to refine and cultivate your inner state has been heroic. It’s like you’ve been ingesting a healthy version of soul-building steroids. Congrats!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There are enough authorities, experts, and know-it-alls out there trying to tell you what to think and do. In accordance with current astrological factors, I urge you to utterly ignore them during the next two weeks. And do it gleefully, not angrily. Exult in the power that this declaration of independence gives you to trust your own assessments and heed your own intuitions. Furthermore, regard your rebellion as good practice for dealing with the little voices in your head that speak for those authorities, experts, and know-it-alls. Rise up and reject their shaming and criticism, too. Shield yourself from their fearful fantasies. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Conceptual artist Jonathon Keats likes to play along with the music of nature. On one occasion he collaborated with Mandeville Creek in Montana. He listened and studied the melodies that emanated from its flowing cur-
rent. Then he moved around some of the underwater rocks, subtly changing the creek’s song. Your assignment, Aries, is to experiment with equally imaginative and exotic collaborations. The coming weeks will be a time when you can make beautiful music together with anyone or anything that tickles your imagination.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Some newspapers publish regular rectifications of the mistakes they’ve made in past editions. For example, the editors of the UK publication *The Guardian* once apologized to readers for a mistaken statement about Richard Wagner. They said that when the 19th-century German composer had trysts with his chambermaid, he did not in fact ask her to wear purple underpants, as previously reported. They were *pink* underpants. I tell you this, Taurus, as encouragement to engage in corrective meditations yourself. Before bedtime on the next ten nights, scan the day’s events and identify any actions you might have done differently -- perhaps with more integrity or focus or creativity. This will have a deeply tonic effect. You are in a phase of your astrological cycle when you’ll flourish as you make amendments and revisions.
VOLUME 21 ISSUE 39 / September 28, 2017 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be realistic, Libra: Demand the impossible; expect inspiration; visualize yourself being able to express yourself more completely and vividly than you ever have before. Believe me when I tell you that you now have extra power to develop your sleeping potentials, and are capable of accomplishing feats that might seem like miracles. You are braver than you know, as sexy as you need to be, and wiser than you were two months ago. I am not exaggerating, nor am I flattering you. It’s time for you to start making your move to the next level.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s high time to allow your yearnings to overflow . . . to surrender to the vitalizing pleasures of nonrational joy . . . to grant love the permission to bless you and confound you with its unruly truths. For inspiration, read this excerpt of a poem by Caitlyn Siehl. “My love is honey tongue. Thirsty love. My love is peach juice dripping down the neck. Too much sugar love. Sticky sweet, sticky sweat love. My love can’t ride a bike. My love walks everywhere. Wanders through the river. Feeds the fish, skips the stones. Barefoot love. My love stretches itself out on the grass, kisses a nectarine. My love is never waiting. My love is a traveler.”
CANCER (June 21-July 22): One of the oldest houses in Northern Europe is called the Knap of Howar. Built out of stone around 3,600 B.C., it faces the wild sea on Papa Westray, an island off the northern coast of Scotland. Although no one has lived there for 5,000 years, some of its stone furniture remains intact. Places like this will have a symbolic power for you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. They’ll tease your imagination and provoke worthwhile fantasies. Why? Because the past will be calling to you more than usual. The old days and old ways will have secrets to reveal and stories to teach. Listen with alert discernment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The United States has a bizarre system for electing its president. There’s nothing like it in any other democratic nation on earth. Every four years, the winning candidate needs only to win the electoral college, not the popular vote. So theoretically, it’s possible to garner just 23 percent of all votes actually cast, and yet still ascend to the most powerful political position in the world. For example, in two of the last five elections, the new chief of state has received significantly fewer votes than his main competitor. I suspect that you may soon benefit from a comparable anomaly, Leo. You’ll be able to claim victory on a technicality. Your effort may be “ugly,” yet good enough to succeed.
FLOBOTS FRIDAY 9:15PM
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I found this advertisement for a workshop: “You will learn to do the INCREDIBLE! Smash bricks with your bare hands! Walk on fiery coals unscathed! Leap safely off a roof! No broken bones! No cuts! No pain! Accomplish the impossible first! Then everything else will be a breeze!” I bring this to your attention, Virgo, not because I think you should sign up for this class or anything like it. I hope you don’t. In fact, a very different approach is preferable for you: I recommend that you start with safe, manageable tasks. Master the simple details and practical actions. Work on achieving easy, low-risk victories. In this way, you’ll prepare yourself for more epic efforts in the future.

Quick Hits: Cool Cannabis Products X marks the (s)pot Baked Smar+ has a great idea, and it would have saved friends of mine numerous hours, or at times, days, of unintended and undesired “Super Surprised Stoned Sessions.” Those sessions were brought on by people inadvertently consuming edibles made with cannabis, namely my extra strong cookies. Even though they were always placed in a container with dire, “End of Days” type warnings, containers get opened, and without a lid labeled that the contents are dosed, how is anyone going to distinguish a cannabis cookie from a civilian cookie? Answer: They won’t, and then the bad times begin. Baked Smar+ is addressing this very real problem with its Cannacals Home Kits, and is extending this solution to dispensary purchased products as well. If making cookies, brownies or other home-baked goods, you pull off green crosses from a sheet, and place them onto parchment paper beneath your dough, putting the dough on top of the crosses. The finished edible from the oven now has a green cross on the bottom. It’s made with FD&C-approved food colors, is gluten free, and orthodox Union Kosher certified, so maybe you bring your Bubbie some Canna-Hamantaschen? If you have dispensary purchased items but want to mark the edibles themselves, you can apply stickers directly to the baked goods or press a gummy, caramels or other sticky edibles onto a sheet of smaller crosses to affix it. Smar+, indeed. bakedsmart.org

Put a lid on your Lid I still visibly wince when I see someone storing their flower in a plastic sandwich baggie. Glass jars are far better, but still let in light, which is not a friend to harvested buds. And with the sun-grown “Croptober” season nearly here, bud storage is at the forefront of many a grower’s mind as well. I tried out a new storage device recently from CVault, and in this case C is not for “Cookie,” or “Cuck.” These units are well designed and effective on all counts—made
from food grade stainless steel, they are solid yet lightweight, and come in a bowl shape, in various sizes. The stainless steel lid is attached by three latches, and has a thick silicone ring that provides an airtight seal. The interior of the lid has an ingenious feature that holds various sized packets of Boveda, the widely used humidity control product. Mine came with Boveda packs of 58 percent and 62 percent RH (relative humidity). I filled the small CVault that holds 7 to 12 grams with sticky buds recently acquired, and the Large CVault that holds 28 to 50 grams with an ounce and a half of 18-mont- old bud. The sticky bud stayed sticky, and the older bud softened in touch and taste. Various sizes and strong reviews make these a great choice for both consumer and producer. cvaultstorage.com Supercharged CBD vape pens Cura Cannabis Solutions has a new line of vape pens that are CBD only (containing no THC) but do have an added proprietary blend of essential oils in three flavors, with three distinct intended effects. The pens are .500 mg disposable units that are labeled as “Relax,” blended with lavender oil, “Focus,” blended with peppermint oil, and “Revive,” blended with grapefruit oil. The press packet explains in impressive detail the science behind the oils and the conditions which they are intended to address. I tried all three, and then passed them along to my OMMP patients with a need for the relief each pen is geared toward. I enjoyed the tasted the oils provided— no surprise as Select is known for a great tasting product line of THC cartridges. I didn’t feel much from the CBD, but I rarely do. The noticeable effects of CBD are more subtle than THC, as in they don’t get you stoned. The recipients of the pens gave me a thumbs up, especially those looking to avoid THC altogether. At onehalf gram, they’re small and discrete, and while I know there is a market for disposable pens, it would be great if there was an option for recycling these at area dispensaries. selectoil.com
