OPINION Vote Gena GoodmanCampbell for Bend City Council pos. 5


hree candidates are running for Bend City Council position 5. Victor Johnson is a local music teacher running as an advocate for the arts and music community in Bend. Andrew Davis is the director of student and campus life at Central Oregon Community College. Gena Goodman-Campbell is the public lands coordinator at the Oregon Natural Desert Association. While we appreciate Johnson stepping into the race and adding to the conversations around affordable housing, advocating for tiny homes and supporting the creative community, we believe voters will find the most promise in Goodman-Campbell and Davis. That being said, it’s on a few key points that we direct our support toward Goodman-Campbell. Mirror Pond is—and has been for at least a decade—a flash point in Bend politics, and remains so today, as the Bend City Council debates on how much, if any, financial support to direct toward dredging the pond. Goodman-Campbell believes none of the City of Bend’s limited funds should go toward the project. Davis, on the other hand, supports using city funds because of the pond’s “iconic” and “historic” nature. We’ve long advocated for a solution that’s supported by the majority of the community as well as being based in ecological necessity, not on sentimentality. At the same time as some continue to decry that the City find funds for that project, hundreds of homeowners in southeast Bend await their fate in the City’s decision about how to assist the people who will eventually be forced to connect to the city’s Southeast Interceptor sewer line, at a cost of tens of thousands per home. On that topic, we appreciate both Davis’ and Goodman-Campbell’s commitment to solving the issue right away and to lowering the costs for homeowners, and their willingness to explore the option of spreading some of the costs city-wide. Were the City to kick in funds for any project, we’d like to see them directed toward this debacle. Johnson offered no comment on this issue. Another touchpoint in the City of Bend is the use of Transient Room Taxes. We appreciate Goodman-Campbell advocating for a creative interpretation of the mandate to spend a certain amount on “tourism-related facilities,” which, in her interpretation, could possibly include using funds to connect trails and neighborhood greenways. Goodman-Campbell also made a solid point about the prospect of developing a dedicated homeless camp in Bend. She stated that a camp with basic facilities would allow for a controlled environment—which is better than the current uncontrolled environments at places such as Juniper Ridge, which put a significant drain on law enforcement and other resources. Davis, on the other hand, indicated concern that a camp of this type—the type already successful in other

Oregon cities—could bring “safety and noise concerns.” As for what to do about finally developing Juniper Ridge, part of which the city owns, Goodman-Campbell is in favor of either re-visiting the existing master plan for the area, or for selling the land. Davis is in favor of developing the land to bring in more industry and jobs. Davis has education and experience in strategic planning, which could serve him well in this first foray into government work. Goodman-Campbell, however, already has more government experience, having worked on legislation and government policy during her work with ONDA. Additionally, Goodman-Campbell ran against Rep. Knute Buehler for state House in 2016—a valuable experience that, while she was ultimately unsuccessful, demonstrates her drive and commitment to public service. Vote Gena Goodman-Campbell for Bend City Council position 5.

Vote Cheri Helt for House 54


ur endorsement interview session for the Oregon House District 54 race included just one candidate, Cheri Helt. For that and myriad of other reasons, we are endorsing Helt in this race. Democratic candidate Nathan Boddie—who’s been absent from every debate and public forum in this race since July— declined to attend our interview. Amanda La Bell dropped out of the race last month but will still appear on the ballot because it was too late to remove her. So while there are three candidates to choose from in this race, we believe there’s only one real choice. Fortunately for voters, Helt is a moderate Republican who has a proven track record of dedicated service in our community. Still, Cheri Helt does not take for granted that she will be elected in this race, and informed voters shouldn’t, either. Coming from the Bend-La Pine School Board, Helt will be a strong advocate for adequately funding schools. She puts forth some solid ideas about making incremental changes that would bring greater sustainability to the Public Employees Retirement System—ideas she says stem from her own experience as a local business owner who’s able to offer retirement and health care plans to her employees, while keeping costs in check. We also appreciate her approach on working toward a collaborative mental health system that brings schools, county and city governments together with other stakeholders, in the interest of providing more valuable services and not “doubling up.” Helt also spoke of a readiness to work across the aisle and to buck party lines when necessary to serve local voters—a worthwhile pursuit for a legislator serving a highly “purple” district in a majority-Democrat legislature. Helt is passionate, prepared and level-headed, and we believe she will serve Central Oregon’s disparate population fairly. Vote Cheri Helt for Oregon House District 54.

(Position #1) and Patti Adair and James Cook (Position #3). One of the questions put by the moderator concerned climate change. He asked each candidate in turn whether they were part of the 72 percent in Deschutes County who acknowledge that climate change is happening and understand that humans are the main drivers? Adair was the first to go, saying, “OK. The climate has always been changing, I do believe that. We’ve had amazing differences, Greenland was green at one time. I actually lived in Seattle when Mt. St. Helens went off. The weather in Seattle changed for several years. It was a lot nicer. All the CO2 was released by an enormous volcano.” Wait. Did Adair actually suggest that the carbon dioxide released by the eruption warmed the weather in Seattle? And for several years? The prevailing winds at the time blew the plume east and the dust cloud did reduce nighttime cooling resulting in general As the campaign season ramps up to full speed and we continue our endorsement interviews with candidates, the Source wants to know what issues matter most to you.

warming for a few days in eastern Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming (http:// But in Seattle? For several years? Is the candidate under the impression that CO2 is not a gas that is carried by the wind? Does she think that it lingered in the area for years, creating some kind of greenhouse “bubble” over Seattle? Adair has been described as “devisive” and too extreme for Deschutes County. To that I’d add “nutty.” —Jack Elliott

I am extremely disheartened at the current lack of public involvement regarding the future of Mirror Pond. According to the city’s memo on Mirror Pond Key Facts, community input was given almost 10 years ago and the results were as follows: “Community input indicated an even division between those who preferred the river to flow in a more natural-like manner versus those who preferred the current look of the pond. “In an effort to respond to an evenly divided community, a third option was developed that reintroduced habitat to the bands of the river along Drake Park, created fish passage, and preserved the water elevation of Mirror Pond. This option was supported by 74% of those polled.” According to these previous surveys, a majority of the community did not support the dredging of Mirror Pond, unless the dam was removed and fish and recreational passage was created. Also according to the memo, “Mirror Pond Solutions purchased land beneath the surface of Mirror Pond in 2015.” The land beneath Mirror Pond is privately owned. Perhaps the private owners of the land/silt should pay for its removal instead of asking residents and river users to pay for it. The city council should NOT move forward with taxing residents, creating river user fees, or using any tax money to dredge privately owned land without significant community involvement. Financing for the dredging of Mirror Pond should be put on a bond measure to see if the community wants to pay for this project. —Dan Pilver

I come from a time that unconsciousness ruled. When: Blind obedience to authority was required, sexual harassment common, physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual abuse abounded. I was taught to believe in idyllic television families as the norm for life, contradictory to what I experienced. Identified pedophiles were told to move on to another town, Hamm’s beer drinking boy athletes were chuckled over as boys will be boys in their exploitation of girls called easy lays. Perpetrators abounded in churches, getting away with it by repenting before their church members. Endured smutty jokes from male employers, used humor as a defense against groping male supervisors, male doctors, knew it futile to report attempted rape, knew friends raped at frat parties in college, received less pay than male counterparts because they had families to support, endured ridicule by other women who side with male perpetrators, live with Complex PTSD. I pledge my support to ANYONE who states they have/are being sexually abused or harassed, I 100 percent believe you. —Pat Homeyer


Diaper Nonprofit Creates a Stink


Former volunteers speak out By Chris Miller




he Rebecca Foundation, the nonprofit organization providing cloth diapers to families in need, shuttered its doors last week and is under investigation with the Oregon Department of Justice. The organization was founded by Amanda La Bell, a candidate for House District 54 who ended her campaign last month after it was revealed that she had not earned a college degree, as was listed in her statement in the Oregon voter’s pamphlet. “We have received four complaints into our charitable activities division,” Kristina Edmunson, spokeswoman for the ODOJ, said in an email to the Source. “We are reviewing those complaints.” The Rebecca Foundation’s website and Facebook page were both shut down as of last Thursday, three days after the entire board of directors for the nonprofit posted a letter of resignation. “Recently, information came to light that led us to feel concern for the future of our organization. When we have sought clarity and openness, we have been met with obstruction. Ultimately, several board members privately requested that the CEO step into a non-executive role. She declined and instead directed us to announce her resignation,” part of the letter read. Allison Snoddy, who until May worked for the Foundation in Indiana, alleged thousands of dollars in grants and other funds raised for the foundation have gone missing, including $2,000 in grant funds from a church in St. Louis. Leigh Kalista, the former president of the St. Louis, Mo., chapter of the Rebecca Foundation, said she got involved after buying a $25 package of new diaper covers and inserts for the foster children she provides care for. “After I received my package, I wanted to step up and help the organization,” Kalista said in an email. “I went through the online training that they offered and became the St. Louis chapter president. After just a few months of opening my chapter, a local church reached out to me and donated $2,093.31. “I contacted Amanda La Bell, the CEO of The Rebecca Foundation, and Amanda instructed me to send her the check,” Kalista continued. “She said that once she received the check, it would go into my chapter’s account. She said that I would be able to tell her what I needed, and she would order supplies for me.” Kalista said that she told La Bell she needed newborn diapers. She said La Bell told her the diapers would be ordered, along with other items Kalista said she didn’t order or need. Kalista said

Amanda La Bell is the founder of the Rebecca Foundation.

the first box that came was indeed what she’d ordered, but the second box consisted of a large amount of used prefold cloth diapers—many that were thrown out because they were too stained and some even torn, Kalista said. Kalista said she received a check from the Foundation in February, and both boxes of supplies in April. Then she checked with La Bell in June to see how much money she had left to spend. “She wouldn’t give me a straight answer,” Kalista said. “She only said that I needed to tell her what I wanted and that it would be ordered. I never received any other packages from Amanda, and I never found out what happened to the rest of my donation.” Snoddy said La Bell’s been involved in other nonprofits, including the Skyline Foundation in Bend, a nonprofit supporting Bend-La Pine School’s new charter school, Skyline High School. According to the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office, La Bell is listed as the founder of the organization. Snoddy alleges La Bell was also part of the Free Spirit Performing Arts based in Tennessee. A search of the Tennessee Secretary of State’s website didn’t show any businesses registered under that name, but a story on the website, in June 2013 stated: “La Bell is a homeschooling mother of two and runs a non-profit, The Rebecca Foundation’s Cloth Diaper Closet, which is a national cloth diaper-lending service based in Maryville. She studied music and performing in Panama City, Fla. ‘I was fortune enough through the years to work with the Atlanta Symphony and Orchestra, perform at Carnegie Hall, work off-Broadway, tour with Kansas and even teach amazing kids along the way,’ La Bell said.’” “She seems to have somehow held every title imaginable and she frequently moves to start over in a new town and is considering name changes,” Snoddy said. The Source reached out to La Bell for comment but received no response. She announced last month she’d ended her campaign, but because she did so after the deadline to remove candidates from the ballot, La Bell’s name will still appear on voter’s ballots as a candidate on the Working Families Party ticket for House District 54.

Fewer Birth Options? St. Charles considers closing a family birthing center By Chris Miller


t. Charles Health System—the largest medical provider in Central Oregon—is considering changing the way the Family Birthing Center in Redmond operates, or may even close it outright. Iman Simmons, St. Charles’ chief operating officer, said the purpose is to improve the quality and safety of care and to do those things at a lower cost across St. Charles. “Right now, St. Charles delivers babies in three different communities: the Madras community, Redmond and Bend,” Simmons said. “And those three models of care are very different.” According to St. Charles, caregivers and providers from throughout St. Charles Health System—in addition to community partners including Deschutes County Public Health, Indian Health Services in Warm Springs and the East Cascades Women’s Group—participated in a five-day Value Improvement Practice event in September to develop three proposals for the Redmond FBC. The proposals will go to the St. Charles

Executive Care Team for review Oct. 17, then to the Board of Directors before a final decision. The three proposals currently on the table include one that proposes the closure of the 12-bed Redmond FBC, keeping the Center for Women’s Health, adding an obstetrician hospitalist and midwifery to the Bend Family Birthing Center and providing greater resources to the five-bed Madras Family Birthing Center. With the second option, Redmond FBC would become a low-risk birthing center, the OB hospitalist would move to Bend, the Center for Women’s Health would remain, and more resources would move to Madras FBC. The third option is to close the Redmond FBC, move the Center for Women’s Health from Redmond to Bend, add the OB and midwifery to Bend and enhance Madras. Simmons said about 500 babies are born annually in Redmond. Those would shift to Bend, but all the other types of clinics in Redmond would remain.

“The reason behind that is, right now, the Redmond occupancy for that birth center is 43 percent and Bend is at 48 percent occupancy, and a healthy occupancy, both for efficiency and financial stability, is somewhere between 60 and 70 percent,” Simmons said. “So we’re not able to maximize what we’re able to do for women and newborns when they’re kind of spread across two different facilities like that.” Gary Aguiar, labor relations representative for the Oregon Nurses Association, disagrees with St. Charles’ assessment of the Redmond hospital’s financial situation. “St. Charles-Redmond has earned double the profits of the statewide average of 60 hospitals in each of the last four years,” Aguiar said, referencing profitability information from the Oregon Health Authority. “This is not a merger of services, but the relocation of services to one distant location: Bend. The closing of family birth in Redmond would leave our community without vital services, especially at risk for poor birth outcome and even avoidable deaths.” Aguiar pointed to other profitability information from the OHA that shows Redmond and Prineville hospitals are more profitable than Bend. According to the chart, Bend’s profit margin declined to 2 percent in 2017. Conversely, Redmond’s profit margin was 8.3 percent and Prineville’s profit margin was 10.9 percent.

Simmons said under the second proposal, which would make Redmond a low-risk birthing center, midwives would be the primary providers. But, she added, in order for it to be financially feasible, there really needs to be a certain volume of low-risk births. Right now, all the high-risk births go to Bend because that’s where the neonatal intensive care unit is located. According to St. Charles, the team making the proposals focused on making data-driven decisions related to the quality of care, with a goal of reducing the cost of providing women’s and newborn services by 15 percent. The nurses’ union isn’t the only one against closing Redmond’s FBC. “Closing FBC in Redmond would mean that patients would have to travel farther for their appointments and during their labor, a decrease in surgical services, an increase in admission times and decreased availability for inductions both medical and non-medical, said Amber Loredo, a Redmond FBC nurse since 2011. “It would result in fewer choices for women to birth their babies in Central Oregon.” “There’s definitely a lot of sensitivity and emotion around this issue,” Simmons said. “Redmond Family Birth Center providers and nursing have tremendous pride in what they do and what they deliver, so there’s definitely concerns.” Aguiar said the decision is being made without the knowledge or input of people who live in Redmond. “Redmond residents should have an opportunity to participate in the decision-making process,” Aguiar said. “Hospitals are public treasures, like schools and libraries—our community should have a voice in its operations.” The ONA is holding a meeting at the Redmond Public Library Monday, Oct. 15 at 6:30 pm, where Redmond nurses will provide information about the possibility of the Redmond FBC closing.

end has hosted many local, regional and national championship events ranging from running, cycling, skiing, climbing and fly-fishing. But for one week in October, single-speed mountain bikers from around the globe will descend upon Bend for a bicycling event of galactic proportions: the 2018 Mountain Bike Single Speed World Championships.

A week-long mountain bike party is coming to Bend. Here’s what locals and visitors need to know

A little history SSWC began in 1995, when competitive racing in the U.S. was getting more regulated and serious. A ragtag group of mountain bike aficionados got together and produced an amusing, yet deliciously difficult race, designed to inject heavy doses of “fun and carefree” back into the increasingly tight and stringent world of organized mountain bike events. Single-speed bikes are a throwback to a less technological time. One gear. Only one. Unsanctioned and officially un-official, Single Speed Worlds have become an epic way to test physical endurance, technical ability and to re-calibrate the fun-meter. It’s a race, but it’s more of a cultural event based around the love of pedaling a bicycle. Costumes are common, if not unofficially mandatory. Winners of the event gain notoriety and praise— but instead of a giant paycheck or trophy for the champions, their historic win is etched in flesh as a tattoo. Although racers from counties including Germany, New Zealand and South Africa have won, single speeders from the U.S. have dominated SSWC over the years, including Bend residents Adam Craig and Carl Decker, both proudly sporting tattoos from their wins in 2007 and 2008, respectively. The original event, called Wasted Hairy Insanely Retro League of Enlightened Degenerates—or just W.H.I.R.L.E.D.—started in 1995, hosted in Big Bear, Calif. Other events have been hosted in Wales, Germany, Sweden, Scotland, South Africa, Ireland, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Host nations win the right to host by competition by winning a series of games in a hosting competition (which has included everything from eating and drinking contests to feats of strength and balance), and is now considered a main attraction at SSWC.

Bringing a world event to Bend


David Marchi, owner of Crow’s Feet Commons and unabashed curator of stoke for all things bike (disclosure: I also work at his shop) began the process of bringing the race to Bend after getting inspired by the events in Durango, Colo., in 2009. Failing to win the hosting competition in 2015, he regrouped and made plans for the New Zealand event in 2017. With the help of teammates Jay Dicharry, Zoe Roy and Barry Wicks, the Bend-based team beat out Team Canada at the New Zealand competition by winning an eating contest that consisted of consumption of four New Zealand “delicacies”—all of which would make most humans run away in fear.

Dine in and Take out



In preparation for the event, two local legends, both of whom have raced in past events, talk about bringing SWCC to Bend. Zoe Roy is a multitime Pole Pedal Paddle winner and former World Cup-level Nordic skier. Her fitness level is second only to her smile, approachability and desire to have fun. Source Weekly: Give me some background on your athletic achievements, inspirations and motivations for outdoor pursuits. Zoe Roy: My current goal is to have exceptional off-the-couch fitness to be able to hang with my friends on adventures like mountain running the Three Sisters Traverse or epic backcountry skiing days in winter. I grew up with a Nordic ski background, which lends itself as a good jumping off point to dabble in lots of  different activities. I skied for Canada as well as—and probably more importantly—Team Ninja, a privateer team in Canmore [Alberta] that produced two Olympians. SW: How did you get involved in SSWC? ZR: David Marchi asked how I felt about going on a trip to New Zealand. Without even considering the reason, I said, “Heck yes.” Say yes first, figure out the details later. It was the first mountain bike race I ever entered. SW: What was the biggest surprise for you during the last year’s involvement in SSWC? ZR: One: Sea  urchins shouldn’t be chewed, just slurped whole. Two: It is quite difficult to pass a chain of 10 Pac Mans on bikes on single track. Three: Wicknasty (Barry Wicks) is the only one who can write ‘Hella Sweet’ in the correct font. (Check out Hella Sweet on Instagram for greater detail.) SW: How have you adapted your training toward SSWC versus a ski or multi-sport event? ZR: For New Zealand, it was “crash training.” We rode 300 kilometers from the Auckland airport to the event in Rotorua. It was the best  way to get adjusted to (my) bike, especially since (I had) never  before ridden a single speed. For Bend (I’ve) mostly been riding my single speed townie with my surf board under one arm to the (Colorado Street) wave. SW: What would you say to someone reading this article, who has no idea what kind of event is going to unfold. A particular message to the casual observer? Tell us something that will motivate people to come out. ZR: This is the only time Bend will host this event. It’s a

once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,  one could say—how can you miss that?! The race will be fun for sure, but it’s the whole week of group rides, concerts, activities, shenanigans, barbecues in the woods, and next year’s hosting competitions that are going to make the event epic. Blood, sweat and tears have gone into the creation of the number plates (along with the rest of the event). They’re sweet and something you’ll want to hang on your wall.  I’m also a part-time ice cream chemist, with a bike that has an insulated wooden cooler on the front. I’m considering riding it on one of the group rides and that’s something you won’t want to miss… a traveling ice cream aid station. Carl Decker is a name synonymous with cycling. He spent 21 years as a professional cyclist, with a resume that includes participation in seven Union Cycliste International World Championships, an Elite National Road Championship, and participation in the X-Games. In 2008, he won SSWC in Napa, Calif. Source Weekly: As a previous participant and winner, what’s the attraction to single speed, generally, and SSWC specifically. Carl Decker: As bicycles become more and more sophisticated, rides and riding get easier and easier, but at some costs in terms of equipment  complexity and isolation from the trail itself. Single speed bikes, and especially rigid ones (without suspension) make things harder in some ways, but can immerse the rider more fully in the experience of a trail. What was monotonous becomes challenging. What was easy becomes difficult. It’s not for everybody. But it’s surprisingly fun for many of us. SW: How do you decide on gear ratios for single speeds? How about other bike setups, such as frame size, wheels, tires, etc.? CD: The golden ratio for SS racing is 2:1 (32t [teeth] front, 16t [teeth] rear, for instance). Around Bend, this works for most fit riders on most trails. Steeper, higher altitude, more technical riding might require lower gearing. Cyclocross racing usually requires significantly higher gearing (it’s flatter, the races are shorter and the tires are smaller in diameter). I usually prefer too tall of a gear over too easy of one. You may have to dismount more, but often, that time can be made up in the flat parts— and if a race comes down to a sprint finish, you’re a shoo-in.   SW: What sort of tactics do those attempting to win employ, versus those hoping to just finish? CD: Pacing is unique to every rider on race day. Since the SSWC18 course opens with a substantial climb, the day

Bendite Zoe Roy participates in the “fun” of the hosting competition in New Zealand in 2017—a feat that brought SWCC to Bend this year.

might be decided in the first 10 miles, both for the winner that establishes an early lead, and for the average rider who overextends himself in the first minutes of a long day. SW: What’s your greatest bike-related memory of your involvement in SSWC? And non-bike related? CD: At the SSWC09 in Durango, a guy in a huge penguin suit got the hole shot at the start  and was hauling ass. I  eventually caught him and attacked past him in my own weird costume. It wasn’t until that night, at the bar, that I learned that the penguin was a good friend of mine, who also  hadn’t recognized me. It sounded something like, “Did you see how fast that Penguin dude was going?” and Dan saying, “That was me. But who was that dude that flew by me in his underwear?” and me saying “Uh, that was me, dude!” We were each impressed by the other’s speed. SW: The 2018 course was made by you and others. Tell us about that effort and experience.  CD: Bend is the epicenter of a bright orange Strava heat-map. There are a lot of riders doing a lot of trail riding. With SSWC we had the opportunity to race on trails that are off the beaten path. Even the locals who know Bend’s trails the best will ride miles and miles of  single track that they never knew existed come race day—some of which didn’t exist. We’ve been working this

summer to build some trails to connect it all together. These are trails that are special to me, and bring riders to unique spots in the woods west of Bend. Like single speeding, that hasn’t been easy, but it has been fun.   SW: What do you hope our community experiences during the events— including race participants, support people and casual observers? CD: A different experience. The bikes are only  slightly different, but the experience of the Single Speed Worlds is entirely unique. It’s cycling, un-homogenized. People from around the globe make a yearly pilgrimage to SSWC not because of money or rankings, but because of the long tradition of fun that the event has perennially offered since 1999. [Editor's note: The race began in '95, but began being offered yearly in '99.] Fun like this is catching— for racers and bystanders alike. The single-speed community is entirely unique within the cycling world. It’s a broader segment of the population than Bend people are used to at normal cycling events. From an  extremely fit international racer from Europe, to a  slightly overweight, smoke-break-taking, bearded machinist from Pittsburgh, everybody has their place. To some it’s about fighting to win, while for most it will be fighting to finish, but everybody that enters the SSWC comes to have fun. 



Words By Nicole Vulcan, Photos by Don Ipock

These days, arriving on a mountain bike trail with a whip that has coaster brakes is likely to elicit some funny looks, if not outright disdain, from fellow riders—but that was definitely not always the case. Featured on the cover of this fine issue is someone who’s been part of the evolution of the sport and its gear; an OG mountain biker, if you will. Gary Bonacker, co-owner of Sunnyside Sports and founder of the Tour Des Chutes, has been clunking around Central Oregon on a myriad of bikes for decades. The sweet ride he’s sporting, riding down Awbrey Butte (before it was populated by upscale houses), is a Schwinn single speed with coaster brakes—the very bike he rode on trails back in 1976, the year Don Ipock snapped the photo. Back then, most of the trails were double track and deer trails, Bonacker tells me. Judging by the air he’s getting in the photo, having a bike that would now be classed as “bunk” wasn’t stopping him from crushing. In ‘76, “mountain bike” wasn’t even a term; Bonacker says they called them dirt bombers. “I look back at that still and go, that was SO much fun. We would take shovels and dig these berms and dig these jumps and stuff on Awbrey Butte, because it was before there were any houses there—it was just a blast,” Bonacker said. “And that’s the reason people mountain bike still, and cycle in general, is that it’s fun.”

Feeling Alive

Brandon Prinzing and the Old Revival celebrate their album release— and a push to become career musicians By Anne Pick


he last time we checked in with Brandon Prinzing, he’d brought his scratchy vocals and folk-meetspunk sound to the helm of the now-defunct local band, Riot on a Sunday. Nearly a year later, he’s on the cusp of releasing his first album under the moniker Brandon Prinzing and the Old Revival. The album is helped along by producer Aaron Gillespie, best known as the drummer for metalcore band Underoath and lead singer of alt-rock band The Almost. “I made the album with Aaron—and they were songs that I had written that I reimagined when I made them in the studio—they came to life,” Prinzing says. “When I came home, I felt like it was a new beginning and I wanted to take things in “It makes me feel a new direction.” Prinzing had been alive because I sitting in with forwrite from a really mer Bend-based band emotional place, Onward, Etc., who had been on tour with when I’m playing Gillespie. Prinzing and something, I feel Gillespie became fast it. It’s just in me, friends. He played some of his original songs for it was born in me. There’s no way I can Gillespie, who asked him to meet him in New phone it in.”  Mexico after the tour to —BRANDON record an album. PRINZING “Growing up, I was a big fan of Gillespie,” Prinzing admits. “It wasn’t just some guy. I once drove to Seattle to watch him when I was 17. I was a big fan of The Almost and Underoath. He was really supportive and cool and we set a date and I flew out there and we made it in five days. It was one of the hardest and most stressful and greatest things I’ve ever done.”  Prinzing recorded the Riot on a Sunday album alone in his bedroom out of necessity. He wanted to learn how to record an album, so he did. He learned a lot of second-guessing occurs. He wore all of the hats, but

didn’t have someone with confidence and vision there to enhance the final product. “Without a doubt, he pushed me to do my best — more than I’d ever been pushed musically, vocally and conceptually,” Prinzing says of working with Gillespie. “He allowed things to breathe where they needed to breathe. He put a touch on the songs that I didn’t know they needed. A lot of the stuff, I had the bones ready to go and the changes he made gave it a pop. He made it more cohesive.”

The night before the last day in the studio, Gillespie told Prinzing that he needed a mid-tempo song to complete the album — something in the vein of “One Headlight” by The Wallflowers. Prinzing felt inspired, went to his hotel room and returned to the studio the next day with “Bitter Cold,” a song he says has gone on to become many people’s favorite. “For me, it makes me feel alive because I write from a really emotional place. When I’m playing something, I feel it. It’s just in me, it was born in me. There’s no way I can phone it in,” Prinzing says. About a year ago, Prinzing decided to give his goal of becoming a career musician a real shot. When he returned from New Mexico, Jesse Martinez, who played in Riot on a Sunday, stayed on to play bass and recruited his friend Gus Hulstein to play drums. Jared Britton joined them on lead guitar. “After a lifetime of searching, I’ve found a home with the people I’m supposed to be doing it with,” Prinzing says. “The quality is there but I didn’t have to sacrifice the fun, it’s still like you’re doing it with your friends. You spend a week with someone like Gus and it feels like I’ve known him forever. I don’t remember a time not knowing them. I think that cohesiveness plays on stage, understanding what the other one is going to do, it’s intuition.”

1. an agile digital + branding agency working tirelessly to help organizations find their voice, clarify objectives and create memorable customer-centric solutions.

BEND DESIGN Are today's innovators solving all the wrong problems? Can we learn from pain? How can a fast-growing city evolve smartly while preserving its character? Will the average business lose its personality before it loses its way? How do design, architecture, sound, and art change the world? To answer life's important questions, we need innovative thinkers from all walks of life. Craft brewers. Ranchers. Entrepreneurs. That's just to start. We'll also need dog walkers. Librarians. Triathletes. And we'll need professional creatives – designers, architects, writers, and artists trained in creative problem solving. Some call it Design Thinking: a way to delve deep and come up with elegant solutions we can apply to real life. You're invited to listen, learn, and bring your knowledge to the conversation. It all happens at Bend Design 2018. Let's dive in together, beyond design.



Bend Design is produced by ScaleHouse, a member-supported, non-profit arts organization that produces year-round events, including talks and workshops, exhibitions and performances, and the annual Bend Design conference. ScaleHouse believes that our shared future presents complex challenges and opportunities, not just benefiting from creativity but requiring it.

Bend Design is supported in part by a grant from the Bend Cultural Tourism Fund.

Name It; He’s Probably Done It

Above, McVay today. Above right, a promotional shot of Jared McVay, circa 1980.

McVay, 78, says he was born in a “shack down by the river” outside of Eureka, Kansas, delivered by a midwife, and grew up poor. He says he left home at 14—as soon as he could earn a driver’s license at that time, working his way through high school and college. He started hopping trains in 1951, when he was 11 and in the sixth grade. He remembers one engineer, a huge man named “Taillight Tipton,” who at a slow spot on his run, would lean down and help pull McVay up into his cab. He

He says he was in about four hours of the 26-hour mini-series, “Centennial,” playing opposite actors Brian Keith and former Detroit Lion Alex Karris. And he still gets residuals from TV shows including “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Ally McBeal.” Long before his acting days, McVay worked as a lumberjack,  a “card-carrying carnival barker,” and a rodeo clown who also rode bulls, bareback and saddle bronc for three years. Tack onto that five years in the U.S. Navy Seabees as an


electrician and a stint with Kansas Gas & Electric in Wichita, Kansas. About four months ago, he and his wife, Jerri, moved to Brasada Ranch from Lynnwood, Wash., where it had grown too crowded for their liking. “We’ve met nice people here, and it’s nice and quiet,” he adds. McVay started writing books about six years ago. His first book came out in 2012, a children’s book titled “Bears, Bicycles & Broomsticks.” He’s written eight western books in the cowboy “Clay Brentwood” series that takes place in the 1800s. “I get emails from women who say they’re in love with Clay Brentwood,” he chuckles. He’s also half finished with the first book in another series, “The Adventures of Kathleen McClusky.” It opens northeast of Redmond, Ore., where the heroine has spent three days climbing out of an abandoned well into which she’d been thrown. “I’m not trying to write the great American novel,” McVay says. His business card reads, “Nothing fancy, just good stories.” The couple recently flew to Orlando, Fla., where McVay had a book signing. He has another signing scheduled for later this month at Herringbone Bookstore in downtown Redmond. Wife Jerri gets the first read of his manuscripts and helps keep his writing in line before it’s sent off to the publisher. McVay has been married five times, losing two wives to cancer, one to a drunk driver and one to just a “wrong” marriage, he says. He’s been married to Jerri for a little over four years. He has four daughters and one son spread around the U.S., along with 14 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. With no formal acting training to speak of, McVay says he learned the tricks of that early career from watching

“the pros” up close. One of those was Jimmy Stewart, who would become a close friend. “I felt very honored to be considered a friend. If I had a thrill about anything, it would be that. He was quite a gentleman.” Stewart also offered him direction: “Know your lines and know your character. That’s the best advice you can give to any actor. If you know your character, the lines come naturally.” On the other hand, McVay says that through his interactions with Charlton Heston, he learned “not to be a pompous ass.” They both served on SAG committees and used to butt heads, he adds. At one time he ran around Hollywood with Errol Flynn’s son, James, and he’s also worked onstage with Freddy Fender (another close friend), Roy Clark, Minnie Pearl, Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn, doing mostly emcee work and standup comedy. McVay says his acting earned him “good money,” so much that he took a year and a half in the mid-1980s to solo sail around the world in a 34-foot sloop re-engineered to right itself in stormy seas. These days, McVay gets up around 5:30 am six to seven days a week, writing until noon or so, aiming to write 2,000-3,000 words a day. He says he can get a book to his publisher in about three months. When he’s not writing, McVay enjoys reading, watching movies and fishing. “It’s a fun life,” he muses, adding, “or as Jimmy would say, it’s a wonderful life.”

told McVay, “If you’re going to ride my train, I want to keep an eye on you.” This rail-riding habit enabled McVay to see all the contiguous states, as well as Canada and Mexico City by the time he was 18. McVay said when school let out for the summer, he’d just go “hobo-ing’” for three months. As a member of the Screen Actors Guild, he’s appeared in more than 40 movies, 20 television shows and 100 commercials, including bit parts in popular shows such as “Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.” and “Hill Street Blues.” He’s also worked as a screenwriter and director.


“I love to write about people and their struggle with life, the ups and downs, the good and the bad.”

From riding trains to reading lines to writing books, new Central Oregonian Jared McVay’s done a lot ared McVay says a few weeks ago, his publisher told him that among Amazon’s book sales worldwide, Stephen King is rated at number 19. McVay asked what that had to do with him. His publisher responded, “You’re number 20.” But through 12 books and counting, it’s doubtful that any of the fictional characters McVay dreamed up could have had as many thrilling adventures as he’s had. He’s been a hobo, carnival barker, lumberjack, rodeo clown, U.S. Navy veteran, power lineman, professional actor, sailor, and for the past six years, a writer. “I’m one of those guys who always want to see what’s on the other side of the hill,” McVay says. “People tell me that I’ve lived a whole bunch of lives.”

Chow with a Hit of CBD

CBD drinks are trending, with the promise of healthful side effects

Bulk Buying Pop Up Farmers Market

For the third year, the Fill Your Pantry event offers Central Oregonians an opportunity to save money and stock the pantry, freezer and root cellar full of potatoes, onions, leeks, beets, winter squash, garlic, honey, flours, apples, pears, dried beans, nuts, krauts, cheeses and more. It’s a bulk buying event, so be prepared to take home large quantities of items like 20-pound bags of onions, 50-pound bags of potatoes and half wheels of cheese. The bulk-quantity farmers market is open to the public. Customers should pre-order to guarantee getting the desired items. Pre-ordering is available Oct. 22 through Nov. 4. People often add CBD to the Sunny Bowl at Sunny Yoga Kitchen, but can also add peppermint or coconut CBD oil to any meal or drink.

“I don’t like the feeling of being high, but I’m on my feet 60 hours a week and CBD is a natural alternative for reducing stress and pain.”

Cooking Class: Gluten -Free Vegan Desserts The holidays are around the corner, so what better time to learn how to make delicious, shareable desserts. Many people today have dietary restrictions, so learning how to make a mouthwatering gluten-free, vegan dessert is sure to please the entire crowd. This class at Pure Joy Kitchen teaches you how to make no-bake pies and desserts without sugar, grains or dairy. You’ll make a sugar-free keto lemon meringue pie, pumpkin pie chocolate swirl cheesecake and an apple cobbler with coconut whipped cream.

—AMY WRIGHT I asked Rick Eslinger at Strictly CBD if there’s a risk of taking too much CBD. He said, “the only downside of using too much is wasting it, like if you took too much Vitamin B.” And then he said, “I guess you could feel too relaxed.” Interesting to note: CBD is naturally occurring in breast milk and orange peels. CBD promises relief from pain, anxiety and depression. Studies on offer evidence CBD can be used for a wide range of conditions including epilepsy, schizophrenia, joint pain and diseases such as cancer. In June, the Food and Drug Administration approved its first CBD drug, Epidiolex, to treat epilepsy. At least two restaurants in Bend have added CBD to the menus after their owners experienced the benefits. “We are regular users of CBD and have wonderful results and wanted to be able to pass that on to our customers,” said Violet Robles, general manager at Mother’s. Amy Wright, chef co-owner of Sunny Yoga Kitchen, said, “We added it to the menu because I started using it myself. I don’t like the feeling of being high, but I’m on my feet 60 hours a week and CBD is a natural alternative for reducing stress and pain.”

At Mother’s, visitors can grab a premade CBD elixir or add CBD to any meal or drink.

Both restaurants allow patrons to add it to a beverage or a meal. At Sunny Yoga Kitchen I added 25 milligrams of organic coconut CBD oil to my Sunny Bowl, a combination of sautéed vegetables, garbanzo beans, quinoa and cilantro served over jasmine rice with coconut curry sauce. I expected hints of dry sap, like you often find with edibles, but it didn’t have any skunk. The bowl didn’t taste any different. I had the same experience at Mother’s when I drank the orange, grapefruit and lemon CBD elixir, OG Krush. It tasted like bright, citrusy juice. As for the effects, it made me feel a little more relaxed. By 2020, the hemp and CBD category is expected to be a $1 billion market in the U.S., according to a report issued by Brightfield Group. This means we

can look forward to more restaurants offering CBD, and local CBD product producers like Ablis can expect more competition. If you want to add CBD to your food at home, you can purchase hemp protein powders and CBD oils and tinctures at local dispensaries.

s predicted by the Specialty Food Association’s Trendspotter Panel, cannabis cuisine has been a hot trend in 2018. Even the big guys such as Molson Coors are teaming up with cannabis producers to create entire ventures dedicated to cannabis beverages. You may have already spotted this trend around Central Oregon, since places including The Bite in Tumalo and Primal Cuts have Ablis CBD sparkling beverages on tap. While CBD drinks are becoming mainstream, adding it to food at restaurants is still emerging. CBD, or cannabidiol, is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. It’s not psychoactive, which means you won’t get high. You don’t get the mind-altering effects because it doesn’t contain the chemical compound tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Without the psychoactive effects, CBD has no age or driving restrictions.

Sure, $25 or so may be a lot to spend for 15 minutes of driving—but Bend Police can introduce beer fans to a much more expensive alternative instead, if they prefer. • View top-rated beers locally. Since Untappd keeps track of the zip codes where users check in beers, it’s easy to find out what the beers with the highest average ratings are for almost any point in the U.S. (For Bend, that’s RPM IPA—wholly expected. Fresh hop ales from Sunriver Brewing currently occupy spots three and four, which is perhaps less so.)

• Find out what’s on tap at home. Bars that subscribe to Untappd for Business are listed on the app as “Verified Venues,” and this allows them to maintain online tap lists.

CRAZY RICH ASIANS: The combination of director Jon M. Chu and star Constance Wu means this light romantic comedy will be a must-see for fans of laughter and good feelings. Seriously, Constance Wu is a national treasure. See everything she does. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

A SIMPLE FAVOR: There’s nothing simple about this mystery/dramedy from the creator of “Bridesmaids” and “Freaks and Geeks.” The final 30 minutes have more twists than a ’60s dance floor and the performances from Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively are basically flawless. A good old-fashioned time. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

EIGHTH GRADE: The feature from Bo Burnham is an honest and lovely look at the alienation of youth that will easily rank among the top 10 of the year. Movies like this don’t come around often, but when they do, it’s a beautiful sight to behold. Tin Pan Theater.

SMALLFOOT: With a voice cast featuring Channing Tatum, James Corden, Common, Danny DeVito and…LeBron James, “Smallfoot” is a surprisingly touching animated adventure about acceptance and xenophobia. Surprisingly deep themes for animation. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

FAHRENHEIT 11/9: The new documentary

explores the current White House with all of the biting sarcasm for which Michael Moore is loved and hated. Always balanced with a bit of gallows humor, the film preaches directly to the choir without attempting to make any converts. Sisters Movie House

HELL FEST: A masked trial killer stalks a group

of horny teens through a massive haunted house known as “Hell Fest.” It’s a nice, high concept idea for a horror movie, but the trailers don’t inspire a single chill or thrill. Hopefully, this outdoes its inadequate marketing campaign. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS: Horror filmmaker Eli Roth takes on the young adult genre with a spooky haunted house story featuring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett. It’s basically the director of “Hostel” making an homage to the ’80s Amblin Entertainment movies like “ET” and “Poltergeist.” Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

NIGHT SCHOOL: Either you like Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish or you don’t, and this fitfully funny comedy won’t change your mind either way. Hart going to night school is a concept that could have born much headier fruit than this barely passable effort. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE NUN: A part of the “Conjuring” Cinematic Universe,” this tells the story of a haunted Romanian nunnery and the heroes that try to re-consecrate the grounds. Surprisingly creepy, “The Nun” is another solid entry in the remarkably entertaining franchise. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX PEPPERMINT: Watching Jennifer Garner kill bad guys is one of my hobbies, so “Peppermint” looks like a jolly good time at the movies, even though the script sounds like “Death Wish” warmed over. Hopefully Garner can carry it past the clunkiness into the realm of super dumb fun. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE PREDATOR: It’s not like the original

“Predator” was worthy of any writing awards, but the new reboot manages to display a proud ridiculousness that almost carries the movie past its flaws. It may be accused of sexism and turning autism into a superpower, but it’s also a perfectly typical entry into the franchise. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

A STAR IS BORN: Lady Gaga and Bradley

Cooper team up to tell one of Hollywood’s oldest stories and somehow manage to keep it feeling fresh and heartrending. Gaga and Cooper are both so powerful that even when the story threatens predictability, the film never becomes anything less than mesmerizing. This will win all kinds of awards. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinemas

VENOM: Tom Hardy is one of the best actors the studios have ever talked into starring in a comic book movie—if only the film was truly worthy of his talent. There are moments of pure entertainment scattered throughout what is ultimately one of the dumbest superhero movies ever made. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinemas

WHITE BOY RICK: The true story of a teenage drug kingpin who got in way over his head with gangsters, dealers and the FBI. Another memorable performance from Matthew McConaughey and “Atlanta’s” brilliant Paper Boi, Brian Tyree Henry. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE WIFE: Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce as a well-respected couple celebrating 40 years of marriage. Here is my money, where do I sit, please? Tin Pan Theater, Sisters Movie House


MALEVOLENT: It’s October, which

means you should try and find some movies you’ve never seen. Might I recommend “Malevolent,” a Netflix original about phony ghost hunters who stumble across a very haunted house. This freaked me out so badly that I thought about calling my mom, but just hid under some blankets instead. Now streaming on Netflix.

Venom bites off more than it can chew By Jared Rasic


Courtesy of Marvel.

The Good: 1. Tom Hardy invests himself fully in the story of Eddie Brock, a reporter infected with a psychopathic symbiotic life form from outer space. He mumbles, stumbles and tumbles his way through one ridiculous scene after the other, making me excited to see him play the role again even as I (sorry) MARVEL at how this movie even got made. 2. Venom as a creature and character works. He eats heads. He looks cool. 3. There’s some extremely inventive physical comedy executed perfectly throughout the film. Sometimes during dramatic scenes.

The Bad: 1. There are wonderful scenes of physical comedy during dramatic moments. Director Ruben Fleischer has no idea what kind of movie he was trying to make. As a filmmaker who nailed the contrast between comedy and horror in “Zombieland,” it’s strange he failed so miserably with “Venom.” 2. Wasted talent of three excellent actresses. Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate and Melora Walters barely have anything to do, bouncing between damsels in distress and women with agency almost without warning. 3. YOU NEVER WASTE JENNY SLATE. She’s the best of us. 4. Venom and Eddie Brock as characters aren’t remotely like their comic book counterparts. Brock is a scumbag in the comics and Venom is gleefully


’ll sometimes bend over backward to justify why a bad movie is entertaining and worth a viewing. Bad acting, clunky writing or flat direction can all be forgiven if the film is unintentionally hilarious or shows signs of something good buried beneath all of the awful. “Venom” manages to be boring, exciting, terrible, brilliant hot garbage…sometimes all within the space of the same scene.

Tom Hardy unleashes the monster within.

evil, murdering without compunction. While Venom still eats a few heads in the film, he only kills bad guys, placing him in the camp with idiots like “Dexter” and “Punisher.” 5. The first hour is so boring I felt like I was on hold until the better movie started. Since Hardy is signed on for two more “Venom” movies, here’s how to fix the franchise.

The Fixes: 1. Fire Ruben Fleischer. Hire someone with vision. Give Tom Hardy some creative freedom. 2. Put Venom in with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. Venom without Spider-Man is like grandpa without his fanny pack. 3. Get rid of the romance. Hardy and Williams have zero chemistry and she looked embarrassed the entire time. Eddie Brock needs isolation so his

relationship with the monster inside of him can intensify. 4. “Venom” is basically a serial killer. Make the next movie rated “R” so it doesn’t feel like an episode from a bad TV show. “Venom” is hot garbage, and also sporadically entertaining. It’s complicated. There’s a great movie in there somewhere, but just like Venom himself, it’s too schizophrenic and weird to make a difference.

Trail Tales Debut

By Nicole Vulcan

Two longtime locals debut a new conversation series around the outdoors


By K.M. Collins



Fox and Jaymo storm the emcee stage at the 2017 Bend Paddleboard Challenge, foreshadowing their future Trail Tales collaboration.


ongtime Bendites Sue Fox and Kristian Jamieson met many moons ago, while adventure sporting in Oregon. Recently, they’ve rolled their adventure onto the stage, appearing once a month at Deschutes Brewery’s Community Night where they co-present “Trail Tales: conversations with inspiring community members.”

Trail Tales is “…a discussion with noteworthy individuals in the outdoor recreation industry who, more importantly, are exceptional humans in our community. They are using their privilege to inspire.”

rotating local nonprofit—is the perfect fit for hosting Trail Tales,” said Fox. She explains the intention of the entertainment project is to, “have a discussion with noteworthy individuals in the outdoor recreation industry who, more importantly, are exceptional humans in our community. They are using their privilege to inspire. “My reason for doing this is based on seeing a change in Bend and the greater Oregon area, and, rather than complaining about the change, being a part of shaping it in some small way. Whether you were born here, moved here 10 years ago or 10 days ago, we all have a responsibility to live mindfully in our community, stewardship and giving back to those environments we impact.”

there were lots of standout moments from the first show. “Alex’s story in general is amazing. To be top of your game in the pro-biking world, witness a car accident and feel so helpless you want to go back to school to become a paramedic. It wasn’t like that decision didn’t take work, he stuck with it for 10 years and I get goosebumps even talking about it,” explained Fox. Post-show, an Olympic hopeful snowboarder talked about missing the Olympic Games by a few points—but said seeing Trail Tales spoke to her and made her realize there’s more to life. Fox recounted an “aha” moment in the close of the first session, when Chun shared, “We are all paddling in this canoe together.”

Gaze west and you might start to get misty eyed at the sight of snow, just starting to accumulate on the slopes. If you’re getting anxiously stoked to kick off the 2018-19 snow season, then this event gives you plenty of reason to make a weekend jaunt to Portland. Snowvana is a two-day fest that celebrates the things that make winter worth living for: skiing, snowboarding, music and local libations. This is your chance to hang with stellar athletes including 2018 Olympic gold medalist Red Gerard, 2014 gold medalist Maddie Bowman, pro snowboarder Erika Vikander, Olympic downhiller AJ Kitt and freeskiing legend Sammy Carlson. The Mt. Hood Film Festival offers a host of winter sports films, and a virtual reality lounge gives you a chance to feel like you’re riding powder, right now. With a gear sale from rad brands, a “Girl Powder Lounge” touting the accomplishments of women in snow sports, and beverages from 10 Barrel, Crater Lake Spirits and more, it’s going to be a full weekend at the Memorial Coliseum.

—SUE FOX Jamieson (known widely as Jaymo) is co-owner of EVO Gimbals, co-owner of Backyard Bend and a free agent broadcast journalist. Fox has been lead paddleboard instructor for Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe for seven years (disclosure: I also work there), an international paddle adventure retreats owner and guide and the brain behind the paddle-inspired blog, Frisky Ripples. During Fox and Jaymo’s annual emcee sessions at the Bend Paddleboard Challenge in Riverbend Park—where Fox is also race director—the pair unknowingly practiced their future routine. A fun-loving banter and charismatic chatter naturally gave way to the duo hosting a project like Trail Tales. “Community Night—where Deschutes presents proceeds from the evening’s revenues toward a

During the inaugural Trail Tales, the hosts interviewed Meg Chun, owner and co-founder of Kialoa Paddles and pro biker and paramedic Alex Maclaren.

Coyotes: Clever Rebounders Columnist confounds trappers, foils the FBI By Jim Anderson they were illegal since there were too many of them per acre, I began to destroy them. I urinated on several, poured kerosene on others and went so far as to burn some. One day, a government trapper back-tracked and caught me at work. All hell broke loose and his boss in Portland —who by that time was my mortal enemy — sicced the FBI on me. That apparently went on for several years, because... Around 1965, while employed with the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry as a staff naturalist, I was asked to be the keynote speaker at the National Audubon Society’s annual meeting in Tucson, Ariz. Just before I was to give my talk, Sandy Sprunt, my pal and biologist for Audubon, said, “Hey, Jim — see those two guys in the back of the room… the guys in suits?” I said I did. And he added with a big grin, “They say they’re FBI and here to arrest you for destroying government property.” So, I gave it all I had, telling everyone about destroying 1080 poison stations and why. When I was done, I left the podium amidst a standing ovation and headed down the aisle. The two guys headed my way. Just as we were about to meet, a tiny red-haired lady leaped up between us, presenting a speech of her own on how much she agreed with my stance on so-called “predator control,” and how overjoyed she was about the numbers of eagles, hawks, owls, coyotes and other wildlife I’d saved in destroying the poison stations. She finished the dissertation by giving me a huge hug, amid loud clapping from the audience. The two guys stopped in their tracks, turned around and walked out of the

building and were never seen again. The little old, red-haired, life-saving bundle of energy was none other than Mary Hazel Harris, head of the Defenders of Wildlife. In the years to follow she and I kept up communication. She sent me to another PARC boondoggle being held at the Hart Mountain Antelope Refuge in eastern Oregon, where the trappers were denning, trapping, running over, and shooting coyotes from a Super Cub aircraft, ostensibly as a means of protecting pronghorn offspring. Harris insisted that every coyote killed by the feds must be given to me to have its stomach examined for evidence that coyotes were preying on antelope kids. I thought it would be prudent to have someone else with me to give another voice to the results, and asked

a reproductive biologist from Reed College to join me. We didn’t find one piece of pronghorn kid in any coyote’s stomach—but we did find plenty of rodents that competed with pronghorn for food — oh, and one sage grouse. We also discovered that the only place suitable for antelope kids to graze after being weaned was a part of the refuge that was burned a few years back. The rest of the refuge was overrun with overgrazed sagebrush and grass habitat. But the most interesting development from that event involved the fellow at the table next to us, looking at female coyote reproductive tracts. He had a theory that in the past 100 years coyotes have changed their lifestyle. Instead of having territories like wolves, they’ve become foot-loose-and-fancyfree polygamists. As it turned out he was correct. Coyotes today no longer live in groups and family units; they are wanderers with one male running with up to three or four females. Instead of each female producing three of four puppies, they give birth to five or six. This means the coyote population is increasing — not declining as planned by the PARC trappers — and as such, have left their ancestral range and spread all over North and South America. It makes perfect sense as to why there are now coyotes from Maine to Los Angeles. In the Northeast, there’s now apparently a cross between a wolf/dog/coyote that's wise to man’s attempts to kill them, which means, “It doesn’t pay to fool around with Mother Nature…” or, put another way, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”

ay back in the ‘50s and ‘60s, I was a thorn in the side of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Predator and Rodent Control program—a misnomer if there ever was one. Their main target was the coyote. The trappers thought they could eliminate the coyote on the “open range”— as they termed the millions of acres of native grasses and other vegetation on “public lands”— as they did the wolf. In my opinion, not one of those agents thought that wolves and coyotes were about as alike as apples and oranges. The trappers only thought of them all as “predators” and used the same technique on both, as commanded by the cow and sheep growers who thought of public lands as their private grazing pastures. What started my involvement with the government’s killing campaign was an announcement in the local paper about the closing of the Brothers School because a so-called “rabid” coyote was found dead in the school yard. I was pretty new to Central Oregon at that time, having rolled into Bend in 1951. A local naturalist told me the Brothers coyote wasn’t rabid, but had died of 1080 poison—another name for sodium fluoroacetate, a weapon of mass destruction left over from WWII. I couldn’t believe it. The technique for killing predators was to put out poison stations with 1080-laced horse meat—also lethal to anything else that got into the bait, such as eagles, woodpeckers and small mammals including weasels, mice and other rodents, and just about anything that got into the bait. After finding these mass killings around 1080 bait stations and discovering

Stats Show Cooling Off in Price Growth

2018 Year-to-date median price up only 2 percent over 2017



ust as the weather cools in the fall, so does the typical real estate sales volume. According to September 2018 Central Oregon MLS statistics for Bend single family residences (excluding condos and manufactured homes) on 1 acre or less, the market is cooling down—as is traditionally the case. For September, there were 196 home sales with 60 percent being in the $200,000 to $450,000 price range, 27 percent in the $450,000 to $650,000 price range and the remaining 13 percent in the higher price range. The median sales price is $425,000, up 2 percent over the September 2017 median sales price of $418,000. This represents quite a cooling from September 2017 when the median price rose from $385,000 in September 2016 to $418,000 in September 2017, representing a 9 percent increase.

Total year-to-date sales for the nine months ended Sept. 30 were up 3 percent over the same period last year, while the number of sales for the month of September 2018 were down by 5 percent from September 2017. While the real estate market does fluctuate, this can be good or bad news. The important thing to remember is that October is historically a good month to buy a home, due to the typical seasonal decline. Prices tend to be lower, there is less competition and less chance of bidding wars and better service is available from mortgage brokers, real estate agents, and escrow/title companies as less volume enables more attention to your transaction. This applies to both buyers and sellers, but tends to work in favor of buyers during traditional cooldown periods.

I’m a 29-year-old woman. My boyfriend of a year is a wonderful guy. I’ve always been a jealous person—very insecure about whether a guy really cares and is being faithful. I ruined my last relationship (with a nice, decent guy) by snooping in his email—finding nothing. I’ve started seeing a therapist, who tells me I am “anxiously attached.” She’s helping me work on this. My boyfriend suggested I also write you to see whether he could do anything to help. —Panicky





Many people find it comforting to believe there’s some benevolent force watching over those they love. You, on the other hand, favor a private detective with a fleet of drones who will also supply you with the video. Your therapist’s assessment that you’re “anxiously attached” comes out of research on our “attachment behavioral system,” our emotional framework that guides how secure or insecure we feel about our bonds with others. According to the late British psychiatrist John Bowlby, we each have internalized working models—basically, expectations from childhood experience (with genes also playing a role)—for how much we can count on others to stick by us and respond to our needs. Being “anxiously attached” seems to result from your mom or other early caregiver being intermittently cold or otherwise inconsistently comforting. It typically leads to needy, clingy, hyper-vigilant behavior, driven by fears of rejection and abandonment. Though the clingaramousness and Nancy Drew tactics of the anxiously attached can seem like ways of acting out, they’re actually attempts to get a romantic partner to ramp up their level of commitment—or at least offer reassurance about their commitment. Interestingly, it seems that the reassurance doesn’t have to come in spoken-word form. Psychologist Brooke C. Feeney found that (in the context of a close relationship) “affectionate touch ... was an effective buffer against jealous feelings” for relationship partners at times when they were experiencing high levels of anxious attachment. In Feeney’s study, the “affectionate touch” just involved one partner putting his or her arm around the other’s shoulder. But presumably, hugs, hair-petting, face-caressing, and other forms of affectionate touch from your boyfriend would also help with the jealousy—shrinking the green monster to something more gecko-sized. Sending the message physically like this takes advantage of how, according to research in “embodied cognition,” our body and actions—independent of conscious

thought—are surprisingly powerful and efficient tools for changing our habitual emotional reactions. (See my “science-help” book, “Unf*ckology,” for more on this.) Best of all, being regularly cuddly-wuddly with one’s partner isn’t exactly an odious chore. It’s surely preferable to the alternative—a relationship that feels like one long interrogation, though with better lighting and decorative accents from Bed, Bath, & I’d Better Not Catch Your Eyeballs Crawling Up My Sister.

The Girl With The Draggin’ Tattoo

I’m a 38-year-old single man. There’s this very pretty, very nice female Amy Alkon trainer I see at my gym. I’d ask her out except that she has a huge tattoo of a diamond on her neck. Ugh. Total deal breaker. If it were a hidden tattoo (leg, hip, etc.), I’d deal. But I just can’t imagine myself or any guy bringing a girl with a huge neck tat home to meet the parents. Why would a woman do this? —Hate Ink A tattoo is a flesh billboard—one that sends different messages to different people. For example, there are those tattoos Westerners get in Chinese, which are sometimes deeply profound ancient sayings, such as “Lost ticket pays full day rate for parking.” Tattoos are now more socially acceptable than ever. Three in 10 Americans have them, according to a 2015 Harris Poll. As for why, people often explain their tattoo or tattoos as a celebration or remembrance of something: “And there was my Everclear era in my early 20s— memorialized by this ‘No regerts’ tattoo.” However, evolutionary researcher Haley Dillon and her colleagues reviewed findings from cross-cultural research on tattooing and concluded that there are two main underlying motivations (subconscious evolved motivations) for people to go all human canvas. People get tats as symbols— interestingly, of either group membership or individuality or both. And they do it as a form of “costly signaling”—advertising to others that they are so crazy-healthy that they don’t need to worry about the health risks (which include bacterial infection and death, a rare serious bummer). Each of these underlying motivations is what’s called a “fitness display,” promoting a tattooee’s excellence as a mate or cooperator, which should ultimately enhance their chances of reproductive success. Well, that’s the idea, anyway. You happen to favor virgin neck, which can lead to some awkwardness in asking a woman out: “Hey, can I treat you to dinner sometime—followed by two years of laser tattoo removal?”

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): My astrological analy-

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): How far is it from the Land of the Lost to the Land of the Lost and Found? What’s the best route to take? Who and what are likely to provide the best help? If you approach those questions with a crisply optimistic attitude, you can gather a wealth of useful information in a relatively short time. The more research you do about the journey, the faster it will go and the more painless it will be. Here’s another fertile question to meditate on: is there a smart and kind way to give up your attachment to a supposedly important thing that is actually quite burdensome?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In her only novel, Save Me the Waltz, Zelda Fitzgerald described her main character like this: “She quietly expected great things to happen to her, and no doubt that’s one of the reasons why they did.” That’s a bit too much like fairy-tale wisdom for me to endorse it unconditionally. But I do believe it may sometimes be a valid hypothesis—especially for you Sagittarians in the coming months. Your faith in yourself and your desire to have interesting fun will be even more important than usual in determining what adventures you will have. I suggest you start now to lay the groundwork for this exhilarating challenge.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Russian philosopher George Gurdjieff taught that most people are virtually sleepwalking even during the day. He said we’re permanently stuck on automatic pilot, prone to reacting in mechanical ways to every event that comes our way. Psychology pioneer Sigmund Freud had an equally dim view of us humans. He believed that it’s our normal state to be neurotic; that most of us are chronically out of sync with our surroundings. Now here’s the good news, Capricorn. You’re at least temporarily in a favorable position to refute both men’s theories. In fact, I’ll boldly predict that in the next three weeks you’ll be as authentic and awake and at peace as you’ve been in years. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In the late 19th-century, American botanist George Washington Carver began to champion the nutritional value of peanuts. His influence led to the plant being grown and used more extensively. Although he accomplished many other innovations, including techniques for enhancing depleted soils, he became famous as the Peanut Man. Later in life, he told the story that while young he had prayed to God to show him the mystery of the universe, but God turned him down, saying, “That’s for me alone.” So George asked God to show him the mystery of the peanut, and God agreed, saying, “that’s more nearly your size.” The coming weeks will be a great time for you to seek a comparable revelation, Aquarius. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Every year, people discard 3.3 million pounds of chewing gum on the streets of Amsterdam. A company named Gumdrop has begun to harvest that waste and use it to make soles for its new brand of sneakers, Gumshoe. A spokesperson said the intention was to “create a product people actually want from something no one cares about.” I’d love it if you were inspired by this visionary act of recycling, Pisces. According to my reading of the cosmic omens, you now have exceptional powers to transform something you don’t want into something you do want.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): In his book The Snow Leopard, Peter Matthiessen describes his quest to glimpse the elusive and rarely seen creature in the Himalayas. “Its uncompromising yellow eyes, wired into the depths of its unfathomable spirit,” he writes, give it a “terrible beauty” that is “the very stuff of human longing.” He loves the snow leopard so much, he says, that it is the animal he “would most like to be eaten by.” I bring this up, Aries, because now would be a good time, astrologically speaking, for you to identify what animal you would most like to be eaten by. In other words, what creature would you most like to learn from and be inspired by? What beautiful beast has the most to give you?


TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Richard Nelson is an anthropologist who has lived for years with the indigenous Koyukon people of Alaska. He lauds their “careful watching of the same events in the same place” over long periods of time, noting how this enables them to cultivate a rich relationship with their surroundings that is incomprehensible to us civilized Westerners. He concludes, “There may be more to learn by climbing the same mountain a hundred times than by climbing a hundred different mountains.” I think that’s excellent counsel for you to employ in the coming weeks.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “It is sad that unless you are born a god, your life, from its very beginning, is a mystery to you,” writes Gemini author Jamaica Kincaid. I disagree with her because she implies that if you’re human, your life is a complete and utter mystery; whereas my observation has been that for most of us, our lives are no more than eighty percent mystery. Some lucky ones have even deciphered as much as sixty-five percent, leaving only thirty-five percent mystery. What’s your percentage? I expect that between now and November 1, you can increase your understanding by at least ten percent.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You Cancerians may not possess the mental dexterity of Virgos or the acute cleverness of Geminis, but you have the most soulful intelligence in the zodiac. Your empathetic intuition is among your greatest treasures. Your capacity to feel deeply gives you the ability to intensely understand the inner workings of life. Sometimes you take this subtle acumen for granted. It may be hard for you to believe that others are stuck at a high-school level of emotional skill when you have the equivalent of a PhD. Everything I just said is a prelude to my advice. In the coming weeks, I doubt you can solve your big riddle through rational analysis. Your best strategy is to deeply experience all the interesting feelings that are rising up in you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do you ever experience stress from having to be so interesting and attractive all the time? It may on occasion feel like an onerous responsibility to be the only artful egomaniac amidst swarms of amateur egomaniacs. I have a suggestion that might help. Twice a year, celebrate a holiday I call Dare to Be Boring Week. During these periods of release and relief, you won’t live up to people’s expectations that you keep them amused and excited. You’ll be free to be solely focused on amusing and exciting yourself, even if that means they’ll think you’re dull. Now is an excellent time to observe Dare to Be Boring Week. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A Chinese proverb says, “Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.” I’m happy to let you know that you are currently more receptive to this truth than maybe you have ever been. Furthermore, you have more power than usual to change your life in ways that incorporate this truth. To get started, meditate on the hypothesis that you can get more good work done if you’re calm and composed than if you’re agitated and trying too hard.

sis suggests that life is conspiring to render you extra excited and unusually animated and highly motivated. I bet that if you cooperate with the natural rhythms, you will feel stirred, playful, and delighted. So how can you best use this gift? How might you take maximum advantage of the lucky breaks and bursts of grace that will be arriving? Here’s my opinion: be more focused on discovering possibilities than making final decisions. Feed your sense of wonder and awe rather than your drive to figure everything out. Give more power to what you can imagine than to what you already know. Being practical is fine as long as you’re idealistically practical.

The latest in Deschutes County marijuana news

By Jeremy Dickman


or a brief, shining moment in Deschutes County (and beyond), progressives, pro-cannabis activists and marijuana business owners felt the rudder of progress was slowly steering in the direction of sanity. Unfortunately, with all the force of an angry Brett Kavanaugh snort, those dreams have taken a hit over the past few months. Here’s a brief overview of what’s been happening. OLCC yanks license for High Cascade Farms In a story full of twists, High Cascades Farms lost its Oregon Liquor Control Commission recreational producer license Sept. 21, after the OLCC found the owners guilty of 13 rules violations. Specifically, marijuana plants that should have been destroyed by the farm licensees after it was determined that they contained pests and mildew were found on site at an unlicensed hash oil processor. In a duplex. After it exploded. One of the interest-holders in High Cascades Farms is former state senator and current Bend attorney Charles Ringo who, according to a local news report, visited the victims of the explosion in the hospital and was “rather gruff” while suggesting they remain silent during police questioning. Patti Adair could be a county commissioner Patti Adair, a virulently outspoken anti-marijuana candidate, won the Republican primary for the seat currently held by Tammy Baney. The Chairperson of the Deschutes County Republican Party’s public comments run the gamut from concerning to absurd. During a discussion of homelessness and mental health issues at a Bend debate, she suggested both are a result of too few kids being educated about the dangers of marijuana. “Students here in Oregon, they’re getting stoned every day if they’re not in college, and if they are in college they’re drinking a lot,” she said. As you pause to unpack that ridiculous statement, consider that, yes, Adair has a very real chance of being a significant decisionmaker in Deschutes County. Get out and vote. Current Deschutes County Board considers more draconian marijuana rules Even as the GOP-dominated county commissioners await the possible election of another anti-marijuana zealot, the current board is seriously

considering more stringent rules for recreational marijuana license applicants. From increasing setback distances from property lines to insisting on one-halfmile buffers between producers, an Oct. 1 business meeting appeared focused on destroying any new county participants in the industry. While almost all rule changes are hellbent on frustrating new applicants, the proposed wording change for odor rules is particularly galling: The county proposes changing the description for required odor-control devices from “independently researched and tested” to “verified operational effectiveness.” In other words, the county wants prospective marijuana producers to prove that they can control marijuana odor in the building in which they’re not yet allowed to grow any marijuana. As county commissioners decry dangers of “overproduction,” they seem blind to the fact that these new rules for the regulated market will merely drive a windfall of cash and product to the illegal market. STATES Act Update Nationwide, things might be worse. In June, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) co-sponsored a bill that would end federal prohibition of marijuana in states where the crop is legal to grow, process, sell and use. While hopes were high back then, the bill has gone nowhere. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has openly refused to consider it (despite his own support of ending the prohibition on hemp farms) and there’s little to suggest it will make it out of committee anytime in the Trump era. This, while marijuana possession arrests remain above 500,000 nationwide, higher than 2016. Is ANYTHING good happening? Well, sure, if you love that anticipatory euphoria of goodies arriving to your house as much as you love Banana Kush. Bend marijuana entrepreneur Ross Lipson just scored $3 million in funding for his marijuana delivery service, Dutchie, from a venture capital firm that claims Kevin Durant and Snoop Dogg among its celebrity founders. Lipson, a veteran of the food-delivery industry, plans to roll out a marijuana delivery option in all states where either medical or recreational marijuana is legal. The website is already up and running, so pass the phone on the left-hand side (and don’t smoke and drive).
