Accessing our national parks should not be a privilege afforded only to the privileged. WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / November 16, 2017  /  BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

T

o underline the complexity of the debate around public lands, think about two local issues. Smith Rock is the first. Smith Rock is overcrowded, and many have proposed increasing fees and even capping the number of visitors as ways to control the populations—not always because they’re concerned about the conservation of the area, but sometimes, because they’re sick of sharing the area with the throngs of tourists who now flock to the place. The Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is the second. The occupation of the Malheur elicited two types of debate: One, that those lands are Our Lands, and that the users should not balk at paying fees to use them. On the other side, there was the perception that the federal government has too much authority, that We the People own the land, for which we should not be subject to excess fees to access. These questions around public land use are centered around how to pay for the upkeep and conservation of the lands. However, another issue is how to ensure the land can be accessed equitably. The access and upkeep of our public lands is complicated by equity issues. There is currently a proposal by the National Park Service—under the supervision of Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke— to vastly increase fees at 17 of our nation’s most iconic national parks during peak seasons, including Mount Rainier and Olympic National Parks. At some parks, the fees could be as high as $70 per car. (FYI, Crater Lake, Oregon’s only national park, was not on the list for proposed fee increases.) The reason, NPS says, is that the national parks face an $11.3 billion maintenance backlog, and through increased fees, they’ll be able to meet that backlog with about $70 million in increased fees. And yet, a bipartisan bill that would adequately fund the national parks, the National Park Service Legacy Act, sits in Congress as this increase moves forward. Further exacerbating the public lands problem, the president’s proposed budget has additional cuts to the Interior Department.

The Secretary of the Interior wants you to believe that these lands are too expensive to maintain. We suspect he is trying put the public lands in private hands. It’s the same argument used on those BLM lands that some people feel the “overreaching government” shouldn’t be controlling. Somehow, they believe that lands privately held will still be available to them— and at a price they can control. Our public lands were put in trust for the American people, not just to recreate on, but also to conserve them and preserve for future generations. That’s where the bipartisan legislation should come in. That’s a far more sustainable, and significant, funding option than exorbitant increases in fees which could prohibit some lower-income people from accessing those parks. In an article published last month on the website, City Lab, researcher Lincoln Larson pointed out that when people visit parks and natural spaces, there are benefits beyond momentary enjoyment. “Greater recreation activity in parks leads to greater conservation behavior on the local scale and on larger scale,” Larson said. To get people to care about nature, you have to put them in it. If not for any other reason but to foster future environmentalism, our public lands need to remain public—and not only that, but accessible to those from a variety of financial circumstances. We oppose these fee increases due to this unwarranted burden on those least able to pay increased fees. This NPS fee increase is yet another move to privatize parks for private interests. We shouldn’t let them. Comment periods are one place to start making your opinion heard. You have until Nov. 23 to tell the National Parks Service that you oppose fee increases at our most iconic national parks. Here are some links.

It matters not what type of development. Up, down, over,under,sideways,down (could not help the Yardbirds shout out), this city as so many others, simply is staffed with decision makers that are inept at making good fiscal decisions for their community. Waste is waste. Except for a couple of city workers with a pail of tar and a bow torch bought at Home Depot, I have not seen an improvement on my street in 26 years. How much time, money and effort gone into resolving Mirror Pond? Years and years of study, surveys and incompetence abound. In the meantime the City of Bend has a real chance of solving climate change. Woo Hoo! — Tim Sinniger Bend will never look like The Village or The Pearl. But most of the highest value real estate (per acre in terms of property tax revenue) is in the close-in neighborhoods; River West, Historic District and downtown. On the other hand places like Cascade Village and Walmart bring in just a fraction of what the property that is Deschutes Brew Pub. Homes in the newer east side subdivisions are a fraction of those on Federal Street or Columbia Street. The question is should the city be encouraging three-car garage, five bedroom, three bath homes on 1/4 acre parcels or redevelopment of the Makers District or Galveston or 14th street? The latter will pay off—the former won’t. And for those who want the former, the city, county and state aren’t standing in the way. But the political question of should we be subsidizing that sort of development from an economics position is not being asked. — Jim Roberts

We live east of Sisters, close to government managed lands. Just last weekend we had a friend —a long time resident of Bend— come out for dinner, to walk around on the magic lands that we so cherish, and have a mid-fall feast. At the end of the walk, off in the distance, were rapid bursts of gunfire. I would have presumed them to be automatic weapons. The guest from Bend has traveled the world and her statement was, “Not until now, did I feel I was in a War Zone....” When will the veterans, hunters, and other legitimate gun owners help us who are so deeply saddened by these human losses at unnecessary weapons to say, “Enough!”? — Scott Stoery

money may not be used as you intended, or if you simply don’t have the time to research organizations, we are here to put your donation to a good and specific use. Food insecurity exists in Central Oregon. People seeking food may be homeless, elderly, living at shelters or struggling families. Often, the amount of food stamps benefits is simply not even close to matching what it takes to feed a family. The Hunger Prevention Coalition is a volunteer run, 501(c) 3 organization whose mission is to ensure funding for nonprofit agencies proven to provide nutritious food for our neighbors in need in C.O. We serve all of Central Oregon through local agencies that serve sit-down meals or give out food boxes. Our signature program, “Help Fill Empty Plates” allows people the opportunity to give at the registers at local businesses by the use of a tear-off coupon that is given to the cashier and added to your bill eliminating the public pressure to participate and 100 percent of these monies go directly to the agencies and must be used to enhance the nutritional value of meals provided. Your donation ensures the meals served and boxes distributed contain additional nutritional items such as protein (meats, cheeses, dairy and eggs), fresh fruits and vegetables and non-perishable items like peanut butter, canned tuna and baby formula. Agencies are held accountable by providing proof of purchase of these items in their yearly auditable report to us. Please shop and donate all year at the participating stores. We at the Hunger Prevention Coalition believe hunger is a year round issue in Central Oregon. — Mary Powell, Board Vice President The Hunger Prevention Coalition of Central Oregon. www.HPC.org

LETTER OF THE WEEK



Jim—You’ve restated basically what we outlined in last week’s editorial. While we won’t argue that the city is “subsidizing that sort of development” in a tangible sense, it could do better in “subsidizing” the other option—the one that will add much-needed infill, and reduce the number of miles people need to drive to get to work downtown to boot.

By Magdalena Bokowa Think winter came early this year? Mt. Bachelor certainly thinks so. With more than 7 feet of snowfall so far, the resort opens Saturday, Nov. 18—ahead of its usual Thanksgiving weekend start. Expected to rival its record-high 665 inches of snowfall in the 2010/11 season, the resort will have three lifts running: Pine Marten, Skyliner and Sunshine Accelerator—conditions permitting—and will be open from 9 am to 4 pm. A deeper-than-normal snowpack means runs have 24 inches to 36 inches of snow so far, though resort officials say it's still early season snow conditions. “It’s exciting to get an early start to the 2017-2018 ski/snowboard season,” said John McLeod, Mt. Bachelor’s president and general manager. All full season, 12-day and four-day passes will be available. And as an added bonus, midweek passes will also be allowed for use on opening weekend. Single-day tickets will be reduced to $63 for adults with other offers for youth, teens and seniors. Though there will be limited services, equipment rentals, lessons, food and beverages will be available, with full services beginning Nov 23. The resort has closed all uphill trekking routes, except for the Cinder Cone route.

The City of Bend has launched a new program to help ensure roads are kept as clear as possible in case of heavy snowfall. According to a Nov. 13 press release, the city has identified roads where cars parked on streets caused headaches last winter. This winter, the city has designated “Snow Emergency Zone” parking

restrictions along certain streets, asking residents to keep their cars off the curb to ensure that plows can adequately clear the roads without leaving unmanageable piles of snow, or berms, for residents. “Do your neighbors a favor: Don’t get plowed around,” said Streets and Operations Director David Abbas in the release. “Plowing around parked cars can end up leaving a berm that would be difficult for a person with a shovel to remove.” Some of the streets affected by the Emergency Snow Zone restrictions this winter are Wall, Bond and NW Broadway Streets, and Chandler, NE Conners, and NW Tumalo Avenues. After a “snow emergency” is declared, there will be a 12-hour window that parking will not be allowed on designated streets. Once streets have been completely plowed, street parking can resume. According to the press release, the city “doesn’t intend to tow cars” during the program’s first year, but will if they deem it necessary to ensure safe streets for other drivers. Vehicles will be towed at no cost to the owner and taken to a designated area. To find out when a snow emergency is declared, check the city’s website for updates, sign up for email notifications or call the City of Bend Streets and Operations at 541-323-5980.  SW

Crank Call

Eugene teen accused of sending bomb threat to Bend school by Nicole Vulcan

Source Staff

T

he Bend Police Department says they’ve identified a suspect following a bomb threat allegedly sent to a Bend-La Pine Schools website. Police say the school district received a threat on Nov. 1, which said that a former student intended to “blow up a math class” at Mt. View High School Nov. 3. Police launched an immediate investigation, enlisting the help of a number of detectives and a special agent from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. On Nov. 7, police issued a release, saying a suspect in Eugene, Ore., had been identified.

"We take every single threat as legitimate." — BEND POLICE LT. CLINT BURLEIGH “We take every single threat as legitimate,” Lt. Clint Burleigh of Bend PD told the Source Weekly Tuesday. Police say investigators looked into the threat in the 48 hours after the threatening email—and beyond that date—and officials from the school district and the police department “felt it was safe for the students of Mt. View High School to attend” school Nov. 3, according to the Nov. 7 release from Bend PD. BLP Director of Communications and Safety, Julianne Repman, says in spite of the threat, there was a “pretty good turnout” at school on the day the bombing was allegedly to take place. Burleigh says only about 15 percent of students chose to stay home from school that day. “Some students that I’ve spoken with say there’s frustration that there might be students out there that think disruption to the learning environment

is a good idea,” Repman said, noting that the protocol in situations like this is to notify parents, students and other stakeholders within the school community—but not necessarily the wider neighborhood. “We looked into this and said, who are the people who need to know?” Burleigh said. In this case, Burleigh said officers determined that parents, teachers and students should be informed, but that a wider community alert might cause undue panic. According to the Nov. 7 release, the threat was sent through an anonymous “TOR” server, but BLP internet technology staff and FBI investigators were still able to pick out information that helped lead them to a suspect in Eugene. The suspect was identified as a 14-yearold. Police say the suspect thought the message was being sent to a school in another state. “It sounds like early indications that it was a student who was trying to be disruptive to a woman or a female that he knew or believed that he knew,” Repman said. “And so there’s this sense of frustration among students that this is their safe place, this is where they go to learn and to connect with their peers and their teachers.” Police say charges that could be filed in a case like this include computer crime, a Class C felony, and disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. The Deschutes County District Attorney’s Juvenile Department will determine which charges to file. To help educate parents on students’ use of Internet technology, the child abuse center, The Kid Center, is offering a training at Pacific Crest Middle School Nov. 30.

Transitional housing project offers transformation and shelter

W

ith a less than 1 percent rental vacancy rate, it’s no secret that Central Oregon is in a crippling housing crisis. For someone deemed a less than desirable tenant, with past evictions, a criminal record or substance abuse challenges, that might translate into hopelessness. Still, there are housing-crisis success stories. Yep, you read that right.

The Scenarios Danielle Patton has a friend who offered her Oxycontin to relax after an explosive fight with her husband. Mellowed out, Danielle stopped the pills a few days later and suffered her first of many severe physical, gut-wrenching pains. “How do I stop this?” she cried to her friend. “You have to take more,” the friend replied. She defaulted to heroin, and then to meth to ease the heroin withdrawals. “I took meth to be a super-mom. ...I felt like I worked a lot and I was tired so when I started doing meth, I felt like I could take care of my son, I could work, I could make lunches, I could make sure all of his school projects were done on time. I just felt like it gave me extra time. But in reality, it didn’t. It took time away from him and pretty soon everything was about that drug.”

I did. I didn’t do anything else because I had no money or time for anything else.” Though their stories are different, three common threads connect these Central Oregonians. They’re all clean and sober, they’ve all relapsed and they all have a safe space to live because of transitional housing.

Transformation and Transition Are you a “normie?” That’s what Gene Gammond, housing specialist and recovery mentor supervisor for Pfeifer and Associates, asks me as we tour transitional housing units in Bend. He’s describing those that use— and perhaps gently abuse—substances such as caffeine, alcohol, food, cannabis or hard drugs—but don’t consider themselves addicts. “They’re the ones that get their first DUI and say, ‘OK, something’s not right, let’s fix this,’” he explains. “They don’t have to hit rock bottom and go to prison or lose their family before it clicks.” Gammond knows this all too well—he’s been in recovery for over eight years and, as he puts it, “been in and out of jail for nearly 20 years.” “Sally’s a normie,” laughs Gammond, referring to Sally Pfeifer, the executive director of Pfeifer and Associates, who nods in agreement as she navigates a busy

“I would love to dispel the myth that having a recovery house in your neighborhood is a bad thing...because statistically having these people in our house with an on-site house manager keeps the neighborhood safer than if these people were out running the streets alone.” — GENE GAMMOND Then there’s Chip, who has chronic back pain and was prescribed painkillers. His tolerance quickly grew and his doctor cut him off suddenly. Facing painful withdrawals and expensive black-market pills, he turned to heroin. He’s been clean since July and was recently released from jail. There’s Arianna who grew up with parents who met in rehab. “I used anything I could get my hands on,” she says, “alcohol, pills, meth… and then came the heroin days.” Arianna says one day she woke up and realized she had missed an entire month of school. At a loss and broke, she says, “There’s only a few options as a non-functioning [person] to get money: steal, do sexual things, or sell drugs. I was not willing to sell myself or become a stripper, and we would just do all of the drugs. So we started robbing houses.” She got caught. And then there’s Josh, who worked stressful restaurant jobs and took pills and alcohol to cope. “In a 20-year period, there were probably only 30 to 60 days total that I wasn’t on something,” he says. Divorce, jail, it all broke him. “People would ask, ‘You’re 38 years old and you don’t know what you like to do for fun? What did you used to do?’ And I said, I would go to bars and go do drugs in my house. That’s what

intersection. She pulls up to a single-family home with a well-kept front yard and a wheelchair-accessible ramp. “It’s true. I’m not in recovery,” she says. “I just want to help.” Pfeifer is the executive director and founder of the largest Central Oregon drug and alcohol outpatient center, and was profiled in a recent Source Spotlight. Inside, the house is neatly decorated in ‘80s style, comfortable couches and all the amenities to live a clean and sober life. “There’s even free coffee,” a new resident proclaims, beaming brightly as he folds his laundry. It’s the little things, such as this, that make it feel like home. Start looking for a “success story” about the housing crisis, and few will be found. The City of Bend has just given the go-ahead for 106 affordable housing units, but at the same time the Oregon Health Plan and the Affordable Health Act are hanging on by a thread, and treatment for mental illness and substance abuse—common barriers for finding housing, could be threatened by the current administration. But there are quiet champions, and silver linings. James Lewis, property manager for Deschutes County, referred me to Pfeifer

BY MAGDALENA BOKOWA

for her work on championing for a permanent homeless camp in the county. Complicated state laws governing zoning mean a camp such as the Right to Dream Two in Portland is still far from becoming reality in Central Oregon, but since 2015, she’s been taking another approach: transitional housing. Gammond is Pfeifer’s right-hand man. The two have been leasing private family homes—nearly eight in three years—and using them as transitional homes for those experiencing homelessness and in recovery. “If you send someone to treatment for a day and they’re there for a few hours, but then they return to their house with the same people they were using with in the same environment, the results are going to be the same,” says Gammond as we tour the five-bedroom home. “When you send somebody to treatment and back to a place where there’s people on the same paths as them, their chances of success are a lot better.” Transitional housing has been an approach since the 1970s. There’s also the “Housing First” model, successfully implemented in places such as Utah and communities in Canada, that relies on the premise that those who are homeless should first be given the safety and security of shelter before addressing any underlying issues—addiction or mental health, for example. As Pfeifer puts it, “How are you supposed to battle your demons when you can’t even get eight hours of uninterrupted sleep?” Indeed, when I meet a recently-arrived male resident at a home later, he says, “Today’s the first day I got to sleep in ’til 8 am, and it was great.” Recently arrived from Shepard’s House, a faithbased homeless shelter, he says that because he wasn’t in the program, it was hard to get a good night’s rest sleeping on “jailhouse mats we have to roll up by 5:30 am.” Gammond says, “I was recently talking to a gentleman who was drinking a fifth a day, and he told me, ‘You would drink a fifth a day, too, if you laid your head on a rock at night.’ And that made sense to me.” The transitional housing model, though, is hard to actualize. Apart from zoning, there’s the stigma associated with recovery homes. “Oh, you’re talking about halfway homes, right?” was a common response I received when explaining this article. “We recently wanted to start our Bear Creek house as a homeless transitional

home on the Housing First model,” says Gammond, “and we brought that to the Homeless Leadership Coalition. One of the ladies on that leadership coalition wrote the homeowner, because she lived in the neighborhood. It’s a classic example, really. She lived across the street from the house that we wanted to start, and she wanted to help, but she just didn’t want to help enough to have it in her neighborhood. So, it didn’t go through.” Stories such as these are commonplace. “I would love to dispel the myth that having a recovery house in your neighborhood is a bad thing,” says Gammond, “because statistically, having these people in our house with an on-site house manager keeps the neighborhood safer than if these people were out running the streets alone with no houses with no one to pay attention to them and they’re out using and doing what they do.” He continues, “We have had no arrests in our housing since opening in July of 2015. And we deal with anywhere from 145 to 152 people that are used to being in jails and prisons all the time.”

Tearing Apart the Stigma Apart from Pfeifer’s homes, there is

Danielle Patton has battled meth addiction.


HOUSING CRISIS transitional housing. I interviewed for housing five times and was going to have to go back a sixth time to get in. If Pfeifer had been around, then I would have gotten in immediately.” Past resident Danielle Patton echoes this sentiment. “You can’t move into a house, with evictions on your record and tell the landlord, ‘Hi, I don’t have a job but I’ll promise I’ll get one!’ Because you don’t know how you’re going to pay rent. But Gene (Gammond) said,’It’s fine, we’ll figure it out.’ He let me move in. So now I’m building rental history, and paying my rent on time. It gave me an opportunity to reinvent my life.” Patton is a 27-year-old mother of two who faced a slew of possession charges and a stint in rehab before she was clean for six months. She relapsed. “I took meth to be a super-mom, but pretty quickly it consumed me. She says she tried to stay clean but, “Moved in with a friend I went to treatment with who was having a hard time staying clean. We figured if we were together it would be easier. That was not the case.” Ariana, a housing manager and graduate of the program, has been in recovery for four and a half years. She just gave up her two-bedroom apartment to move back into a Pfeifer women’s home. As a housing manager, the free rent and monthly stipend will allow her to save for a down payment on a home. “I was lucky to make it to jail and not have died,” she says. “So to think I could actually buy a home in two to three years, well, never did I think that could be a possibility.”

A Reality: Relapse “I tell the guys we’re equal,” says Roniger, the male house manager. “I try my best to keep it a communal accountability, keep everybody working towards the same goals...because we’re all working towards the goal of recovery and so they kind of help each other.” Still, honor system aside, relapses do happen. “If I hear something or if somebody is acting strange and I think there’s something going on with them, I check, I do

UAs, (urine analyses)... and if someone fails, they’re basically given a 24-hour notice to move out. They’re out for five days and then they have to pee clean to get back in," Roniger says. “If it happens a second time, then they’re out for 30 (days) or indefinitely, depending on what they do,” he adds. Gammond says the model works, “because of the rules and the structure and having that accountability piece.” Transitioning from out-patient treatment to regular life can be an in-depth and painful process, so a safe and supportive space is crucial. The National Institute on Drug Abuse says transitional housing “exponentially reduces the risk of relapse,” and they recommend at least 90 days of transitional sober living. There is no real time limit on a transitional home, though Gammond says most in their program stay from six to eight months before moving on. “Not saying that everyone who walks through our doors is cured...but they don’t do it while they’re here. “When we have people dying in our community who don’t have

a safe warm place to be, I think we have a societal issue" Gammond says. "I know people identify there’s a problem and they want to do something about it, but what are they willing to do about it? Are they willing to give somebody a chance and be neighbors? It’s better to try it and hopefully it works rather than not try at all and do nothing.”  SW Editor’s note: Some residents' last names have been omitted to protect their privacy.

also the nationally-run Oxford House—a nonprofit, democratically run, sober housing system. A key difference is that residents of Oxford homes vote to accept new housemates. “Eighty percent must vote them in,” says Gammond, “and I always wonder what happens to those people when they don’t get the 80 percent vote? Where do they go and what do they do?” With their program, if you meet the 30-day sobriety test, Gammond says, “we will bring anybody in, and based on their behavior, it dictates whether they stay or not.” This system also differs in that all of them allow children. “It’s everything, oh ,it’s everything to have him here,” says Chip, a new transitional housing resident who’s been sober since July 18. His young son, Beau, sleeps gently on his lap, as Chip speaks of his long stints of relapse and jail time, having just been released Aug. 29 (see their photo on the cover of this issue). “One of the things that prevented me from getting better for a long time was lack of safe places to live. I’ve been at a tent in BLM (Bureau of Land Management), bouncing around on people’s couches and once you get worse and worse in your illness you run out of couches to stay on. People just don’t trust you and they don’t want you around anymore.” To ensure good behavior, Pfiefer’s homes employ on-site housing managers—graduates of the program, also in recovery— who, in exchange for free rent and a small stipend, make sure residents follow strict rules, clean, attend weekly house meetings and commit to living alcohol and drug free. Scheduled and random drug tests screen for seven common substances. Even Kratom, a legal stimulant, is now on the list, since some attendees have been found abusing it. “I’m basically a mentor,” says Josh Roniger, a house manager, who just celebrated four years of sobriety. “I’m at the house, I make sure the guys are on time, they keep their rooms clean, the house clean and that they’re respectful to each other.” Roniger has seen first-hand the impact of transitional housing. “When I first came here, there wasn’t much

What did we say about Bend’s killer jazz scene? This trio won’t disappoint. Peter Erskine, renowned jazz drummer, has appeared on 600 albums and film scores.

BLIND PILOT FOLK

The Portland indie folk sextet is back, just over a year after the long awaited release of a third album, “And Then Like Lions.” Just as whimsically as their heartfelt melodies, the band formed in 2007 when Israel Nebeker and Ryan Dobrowski took on the West Coast by bicycle. Nebeker went through an emotional rollercoaster in the three years leading up to the release of their latest album and you can hear the heartbreak in his lyrics. From a father passing from cancer, the end of a 13-year relationship, to losing close friends within months of each other, Nebeker lays it all bare in Blind Pilot’s third studio album. 8pm. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St., Bend. $31/adv, $34/door.

the Connection SOUND Feeling Blind Pilot’s Israel Nebeker talks songwriting and his conversation with the crowd By Anne Pick

By Keely Damara exactly how you feel. For the next Blind Pilot album, I was curious if he noticed a theme, since the band’s last album centered on the loss of connection and community. “No patterns yet,” Nebeker says. “It’s hard to predict what will make the cut and what won’t.” While the lyrical content of the next Blind Pilot album may still be up in the air, Nebeker and his crew have no intention of slowing down. With more touring and more new music in the works, fans will be swaying along to their sweet stylings for years to come. And for Nebeker, it’s all a dream come true. “This is the dream of mine I’ve had since high school. To be able to play music as a job, meet new people, it still is my favorite thing in the whole world.”  SW Blind Pilot

Remember this guy? How could you not? Coolio is firmly cemented in ‘90s pop culture. Not only did he give us the 1996 rap anthem and Grammy-winning “Gangsta’s Paradise,” but many of us who grew up in the ‘90s will remember his theme song to Nickelodeon’s Kenan and Kel. Coolio has been confirmed to perform at the 2018 Oregon WinterFest—in the Music Chalet on Feb. 17 at 9pm. Curious about what Coolio has been up for the past decade... or two? You may have seen him acting in a few HBO movies, a short-lived 2008 reality show called “Coolio’s Rules,” and the 2009 web series “Cooking With Coolio,” in which he prepared healthy comfort food on a budget—or “Ghetto Gourmet.” He released a cookbook under the same name and is currently working on another with a fellow friend and bandmate.This year, Coolio released a new single titled “Kill Again,” and is touring worldwide.

plays swoon-worthy romantic tunes. I like the sound of the banjo, we play with a vibraphone and a trumpet, which aren’t too folky.” As a songwriter, Nebeker finds it essential to give himself space and time to write, not finding the setting that important. “I get out in nature or I like to be in a space that feels old or ideal—the opposite from brand new construction and a sterile environment. I like to be able to go for a hike or go to the beach,” Nebeker says. As a writer, Nebeker doesn’t do a lot of songwriting on tour, though he does write down ideas. “There’s not a lot of space to write,” Nebeker says. “Even right now, I’m wandering around trying to find a space where no one else is. You travel on a bus with 11 people, it’s hard to find that space.” I asked Nebeker a lot about his writing process because his lyrics have always spoken to me. While music evokes certain emotions, lyrics can say

Portland-based indie band Blind Pilot

lind Pilot’s Israel Nebeker sings with a silky smooth voice that has a way of drawing you in. That, paired with a pop-meets-folk-rock style and soulful lyrics, makes for one of the most romantic bands to come out of Oregon—or even the country. When “Three Rounds and a Sound” plays, music lovers stop. And listen. And feel all the feelings. Nebeker says singer-songwriters often get lumped into the folk genre, even though it may not be the most accurate description. “It’s funny, when I first moved to Portland and started playing music, I didn’t think of it as folk-rock. Even after our second album, we were really established and it still doesn’t really make sense to me,” Nebeker says. “It’s really different than the folk of a couple generations back or the folk revival of the ‘60s. To me, it’s an amalgam of pop and the style of our country’s history. I guess that’s a long way of saying, I was drawn to certain instruments, but all of my songs are based with my voice and guitar.

ertain names and faces have made an impression in the Oregon music scene—and Robert Wynia and his band Floater may be one of the most recognizable. Wynia and Floater recently celebrated an induction into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame, a big honor by any standard. “I really didn’t see it coming,” Wynia says of the honor. “It’s humbling and stunning, and I’m hugely honored.” Wynia started Floater in 1993, routinely playing garage parties in Eugene around the University of Oregon. Today, Floater consistently sells out music venues throughout Oregon. You may have caught the band at the Domino Room in Bend, playing alternating nights of electric and acoustic shows. Floater rose to success thanks in part to the creative leadership of Wynia. Now, he’s celebrating the release of his solo album, “Brave the Strange,” at the Domino Room this week. The album, which comes as a departure from the alternative rock Floater became known for, has garnered great feedback. “Honestly, I’ve been really blown away,” Wynia says of the reception for his latest album. “The players that are joining me are amazing and I know that helps a lot, and we generally play a wild mix of songs from my solo albums along with my songs from Floater albums, but so far the comments that I’ve been getting are great.” The album has a very cinematic landscape, with a range of songs that go everywhere from the Americana side to ambient electronic beats to a more classic rock vein. While the description may

sound across the board, it blends nicely to create a beautiful soundtrack. “I have never really embraced one particular method of writing,” Wynia says. “Some songs come from me sitting with my guitar, some from the whole band working together, sometimes a mix of both, and I prefer to stay open to all possibilities. A lot of ‘Brave the Strange’ did come from intentionally crafting songs to be played alone. But after the writing process I was lucky to have a bunch of really talented people approach me and want to take part.” Anyone who has lived in Bend for a significant amount of time has either heard of Floater or Robert Wynia, if not seen them live. Wynia returns to Bend year after year and for good reason. “Bend often has some of the most fervent and enthusiastic audiences, which feeds the players on stage a lot,” Wynia says. “There is an energy you get from that crowd that is different from a lot of other places. When the players are enjoying the music and that feeds the audience, then the audience sends that energy back to the stage, a feedback loop begins to take shape and it can multiply on itself to a fever pitch. When that happens, all bets are off and the night can go anywhere.”  SW

f you happened to stop by the Liberty Arts Collective during November’s First Friday Art Walk in Bend, you may have witnessed many helping hands busy at work putting together a mosaic of colored tiles. The mosaic, once finished, will depict a large ripple in water emanating from a stone’s throw—an allusion to something activist Alice Paul once said about the American women’s suffrage movement: “I always feel the movement is a sort of mosaic. Each of us puts in one little stone.” “The whole reason I did the ripple, is that I want to be a catalyst for change here,” said local artist and workshop organizer Rochelle Schueler, who hopes to find the mosaic a permanent home in Bend once it’s complete. The workshop was one of three—including mosaic, painting and spoken word workshops— organized for the Little Stone Project, a four-day event inspired by the documentary film “Little Stones.” A Thursday night screening of the film at the Tower Theatre kicked off the weekend of free workshops, education and a marketplace that featured companies and goods that benefit social causes. The film chronicles the artistic endeavors of four women—a graffiti artist, a dancer, a hip-hop artist and a fashion designer—all using their art to promote change in their communities in different parts of the globe. “Little Stones” is the first project

by Driftseed, a nonprofit that Emmyaward winning director Sofia Kruz, the film’s cinematographer Meena Singh and her cousin Ankita Singh founded in 2015. Their goal is to build “a better world for women and girls” through documentary storytelling —a world in which one in three women experience physical or sexual violence in her lifetime, according to a 2013 study by the World Health Organization. “For me it was really important to tell individual stories about women who know the odds and know what they’re up against and how big the problems are,” said Kruz. “Yet, they’re still figuring out ways to do something about it.” Event organizer Cheryl Parton was inspired after working with Sudara, a clothing company that advocates for human trafficking survivors. “The idea is to not just be a film, but to be a movement for social change,” said Parton. “So how can we do projects like this and go deeper?” The Little Stone Project raised upward of the $1,500 goal as well as raising awareness for Saving Grace, a Bend nonprofit that aims to “break the cycle of violence” through education and empowering survivors of violence. The final resting place for the “Ripple” mosaic has yet to be set, but those interested in following the progress of the art installation can find updates on the Little Stone Project or Wild Rose Artwork Facebook pages.  SW

that community improvements require the long-game approach. To him, Bend Open Streets is a small win—part of a bigger picture making transportation more accessible for everyone, especially those who don’t have a car, either by choice or by necessity. A big win for Potwin would be dedicated funding for Safe Routes to Schools, so they could offer the program in every middle and elementary school in Bend. “Bend Open Streets is meant to start a conversation,” Potwin said. “It’s a way to see the city in a new way.” This idea of allowing people to see the same old thing in a new way has bled into other parts of Potwin’s life, too. If you’ve ever been to a show where “bPollen” was performing, then you’ve been witness to Potwin’s “side hustle,” as his wife calls it. If you ask him what kind of music he likes to play, his answer will be deliberately vague: “good music.” “I like to play music that I like to

dance to,” he specified. “If I’m playing something, it means I really like it.” bPollen was born out of what could have been a disaster. A friend was having a housewarming party and the DJ was late. Potwin had some music with him so he started playing, getting an enthusiastic response. He continued to DJ house parties, and eventually a friend of his christened him bPollen. She was actually shouting out “B Potwin!” but what everyone heard was bPollen. The name stuck. These days you can often find bPollen performing at Velvet in downtown Bend, as well as other special events. Dj-ing might seem like an unexpected side project, but in addition to being entertaining and enjoyable, it’s similar to his overall goal with Commute Options. “I want to offer people a different way to see the world around them, whether that’s through riding bikes or listening to music.”  SW

Shows Worth Seeing

Chris Cole Show and High Desert Museum Show Chris Cole: When Things Work Chris Cole

Longtime Bend artist Chris Cole currently has a retrospective of his work on display at Central Oregon Community College’s Pence Gallery at the Pinckney Center. Cole is probably best known for his kinetic sculptures made from discarded bicycle parts and other scraps of metal. He often turns this junk into fun, exciting large-scale sculptures of bird, fish and more. Many of his sculptures light up and move, and often you can even see the gears working and clicking. His work brilliantly combines the love of the natural world

with the inevitableness of the industrialized one, reminding us of our role in the discarding of waste and our role of protecting the beautiful lands we belong to. This show will be up through the month of November. More of Cole’s work can be seen at chriscoledesigns.com  SW COCC Pence Pinckney Gallery 2600 NW College Way, Bend

Land, Light and Life: Nature through the Eyes of Artists Collaborative Exhibit at At Liberty The first collaborative effort from The High Desert Museum and At Liberty, the new cultural space that recently opened in the historic Liberty Theater, showcases a rich and compelling look at the natural world from six Oregon artists. The artists—Andrew Myers, Michael

Boonstra, Nancy Watterson Scharf, Monica Helms, Kendra Larson and Craig Goodworth—utilize a variety of mediums to celebrate the diversity of flora and fauna while simultaneously commenting on the very real concerns about its destruction. “This exhibition represents the museum’s commitment to community outreach and offers the public an opportunity to experience contemporary art in historic downtown Bend,” said Andries Fourie, the museum’s curator of art and community engagement. The show will be on display through December. A reception, with the artists present, will be held during First Friday in December.  SW

by Caitlin Richmond to share that experience with them.” Teaching people how to get more comfortable on a bike happens in a variety of ways. When he started volunteering for Commute Options in 2008, he was a parttime instructor for the Safe Routes to School program. The program, in seven elementary schools and three middle schools in Bend, helps kids get comfortable on bikes. Commute Options provides the bikes and helmets for the kids and works in and out of the classroom through a series of 10 lessons. “I was raised riding bikes and I really enjoy teaching,” Potwin said. “Those two things fit together well with community education.” The role seemed like a perfect fit for Potwin, and eventually he started working full time for Commute Options. His more recent project has been Bend Open Streets. You may remember the event, which took place in September for the second year. A block of roads were closed to cars in the Maker’s District for four hours, allowing pedestrians and cyclists to rule the road. Potwin was one of the major planners behind the event. It’s easy to think that Bend Open Streets was a big win for Commute Options and Potwin, but he knows

"I'm an experienced bike rider. It's easy for me to bike around town. But it can ge hard for others. They don't find it easy, and I want to be able to share that experience with them."

Bike guy, active transportation manager—and a lot more any Bendites might think of Brian Potwin as “The Bike Guy,” since he works for Commute Options and can often be seen riding one of his four bikes around town (each one has a specific purpose!). But Potwin doesn’t find that moniker very fitting. Yes, he rides bikes, but bikes aren’t his passion; they’re just a vehicle (pun intended!) for what he really cares about: helping people expand their comfort zones, especially when it comes to their own communities. “I want to encourage a different way of looking at the world, of changing your behavior, and making new habits,” Potwin explained. When it comes to commuting, there are many reasons why people might choose to drive, he says. Maybe they don’t have everything they need to commute, maybe they don’t know the best way to get around town on a bike, maybe they are intimidated by traffic or maybe they are just used to driving and haven’t considered another option. Sometimes they just need a little more information to make the leap from four wheels to two, and as the active transportation manager for Commute Options, this is where Potwin comes in. “I’m an experienced bike rider,” he said. “It’s easy for me to bike around town. But it can be hard for others. They don’t find it easy, and I want to be able

New Beer MICRO Piloting Looking into Deschutes’ new test brew system

By Kevin Gifford

VOLUME 21  ISSUE 46  /  November 16, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Source Staff Deschutes Assistant Brewmaster Chris Dent shows off the brewer's R&D testing tanks.

I

n the brewing industry, a “pilot system” usually refers to a small brew setup, run separately from the company’s main system, used to create smaller batches of beer. This can be used for research purposes, or—in the case of setups like the five-barrel system situated behind the glass at Worthy Brewing—they produce one-off brews that are only available at the on-site taps. The pilot system next to (and behind) the bar at Deschutes Brewery has been pushing out amazing brews for years now, from the original take on Fresh Squeezed to all the Bachelor Bitter the city of Bend can drink. Over at their southwest production facility, however, Deschutes has launched a new, research and development-oriented pilot system that—this being Deschutes, after all—is larger than some breweries’ entire outfits. “The purpose of this system,” said brewmaster Veronica Vega, “is to allow us to think about customer trends, where we think they’ll go, and then work to get ahead on those. We’ve done pilot production at our pubs [in Bend and Portland], but this facility allows us to push what we experiment with a lot more without being afraid to discard something if it doesn’t work out correctly.” Two years in the works, the new pilot system was created for Deschutes by Esau & Hueber, a large brewing-equipment manufacturer based in Bavaria, Germany. The whole package, including 13 fermentation tanks, seven brite tanks for conditioning and other equipment, was shipped to Bend in February

and May. How much did it cost? “A good amount of money,” Vega said. “It was an incredible investment. I’m proud to work for a company that invests this much on research.” One unique aspect of this production system is that batches made with it can be split between two different lines during the brewing process. According to Chris Dent, assistant brewmaster and the guy who’ll be watching over the system, this allows them to experiment with much more speed than before. “For example,” he explained, “we recently produced a series of light lagers with this facility. We’ve produced four different batches, and this system allows us to make them, then get them all tasted and tested by our development team. We can do that at the pubs as well, but considering the pubs need to produce beer for the public as well, it becomes more of an urgent process over there.” This means the facility—which is fully automated and runs on the same software as the rest of the brewery—can be used for a variety of experimentation. It’s already produced nearly two dozen batches, some as part of a malted barley study held by Oregon State University, and in the future it’ll help Deschutes tweak some of its recipes for the production facility set to launch in Roanoke, Va., in 2019. Does that mean the public won’t get to taste any of it? Not at all. “We’re producing some lagers now, and that’ll be followed up by pale ales and IPAs after that,” Dent said. “Tasting rooms will probably see some of the beer by the end of the year.” SW

after Halloween, so of course it's time for the Christmas movies to start hitting the multiplex. The trailer for this doesn't offer many laughs, but Kristen Bell is a national treasure, so she always gets the benefit of the doubt. Should be a light and entertaining bit of fluff. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

BLADE RUNNER 2049: There is no world

in which the sequel to a 35-year-old cult classic should be so mesmerizing and beautiful to look at, but here we are. Harrison Ford reprises his role as Rick Deckard and joins Ryan Gosling in this complex and exciting look at memory, identity and what really constitutes humanity. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

DADDY'S HOME 2: It's sadly ironic that, in a time in which so many male celebrities are getting called out on their gruesome and predatory behavior, we've somehow still got Mel Gibson in the middle of his comeback tour. He doesn't deserve it. I guess Will Ferrell is funny... does that make it better? Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema DEALT: Just when you think it's safe to start

feeling positive about your own accomplishments, along comes a documentary about one of the world's greatest card magicians...who also happens to be blind. No big deal. At turns astounding and life affirming, this documentary is a ton of fun to watch. Tin Pan Theater

GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN: The always-excellent Domhnall Gleeson plays “Winnie the Pooh” author A.A. Milne as he finds the inspiration for his stories from his young son Christopher Robin. This looks like a tearjerker right out of the “Finding Neverland” playbook, so keep the tissues handy. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House HAPPY DEATH DAY: It seems like a concept

that should have been ripped off already, but “Happy Death Day” takes the concept of “Groundhog Day” and puts it square in the middle of the slasher genre. While the movie has a few fun moments, it's also incredibly stupid and relies on a few twists that make little to no sense. Still, it's pretty entertaining. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

HUMAN FLOW: Ai Weiwei puts images to the

refugee crisis in a way that only a staggeringly brilliant artist can: by putting a human face on an idea that can only be abstract to people in the Western world. This film will probably be required viewing in classrooms within the next decade. Tin Pan Theater

JANE: A documentary about Jane Goodall from NatGeo that focuses on her field work played over an absorbing score by Philip Glass. As many nature documentaries as there has been, you've definitely never seen anything like this before. Sisters Movie House

JIGSAW: The eighth film in the “Saw” franchise sees the return of the Jigsaw killer, who has been dead for over a decade. Will the police discover Jigsaw's game before more victims are torn to shreds, or will everything go as planned so we get “Saw” movies every Halloween until the end

of time? Either way, blood will be spilled. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER: Di-

rector Yorgos Lanthimos is responsible for 2015's bizarre masterpiece “The Lobster,” so that should let you know exactly what you're in for here. Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman star in what appears to be a brutally bleak revenge story that is bound to make the audience just as uncomfortable as the actors. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

LOVING VINCENT: The first fully painted animated film in history sees the filmmakers take on a van Gogh biopic with nearly 65,000 hand-painted frames. Crafted with love, precision and grace, “Loving Vincent” will be a gift to fans of the master across the world. Sisters Movie House LUCKY: In the dearly departed Harry Dean

Stanton's swan song, “Lucky” tells the story of an aging atheist who goes on a journey of self-discovery as he searches for enlightenment. This one is not to be missed. Tin Pan Theater

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS:

Legendary detective Hercule Poirot has to solve a murder on a speeding train even though everyone on board is pretty sketchy. This is an old-fashioned and fun whodunnit that basically anyone can enjoy as long as they like watching actors at the top of their game creating characters at their rock bottom. See full review on p31. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

ONLY THE BRAVE: This is being hailed as

the finest firefighter movie since “Backdraft.” The true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots is such a tragic and awful one that this movie is guaranteed to be a tearjerker of the highest order. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE: Miles

Teller once again wades into the waters of real life heroism, playing a soldier returned home from war dealing with PTSD. Teller has become a much stronger actor over the years, so he should definitely do justice to the story. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THOR: RAGNAROK: Yes, we've had 17 mar-

vel movies over the last few years, but they're all building toward the delirious crescendo that will be “Avengers: Infinity War” next year where we'll finally have the Avengers teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy. “Ragnarok” is another delightfully entertaining entry in the franchise, sending Thor and the Hulk on a mission in space. What more do you need? Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

VICTORIA AND ABDUL: A historical drama

about Abdul Karim, a young Indian clerk who travels to Britain to participate in the Queen's Golden Jubilee, only to strike up an unlikely friendship with the queen herself. With Judi Dench playing Queen Victoria, the film is worth seeing no matter what, but let's hope the filmmakers have a deft touch when it confronts the colonialism and racism of the time.

another look at the case in a new miniseries: “Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders.” Longtime Central Oregonian Paul Dewey, founder of Central Oregon LandWatch, was interviewed for the series for a very important reason. “I became involved in the case because my father, Al Dewey, was the lead investigator in the case,” says Dewey. “I was nine at the time but recall that Sunday when the murder was discovered, and I remember meeting Truman and Nelle [Harper Lee] in late 1959. I was also familiar with the case over the next six or so years until the murderers were hung, and after that was part of the continued family friendship with Truman and Nelle, and now, after all others in my family have died, I’m the ‘archivist’ of family documents on all that.” The choice to be involved in the documentary couldn’t have been an easy one. “Though Nelle had advised my brother and me not to engage with writers and filmmakers, saying you couldn’t trust them to tell things right, I decided it was time to tell the story since everyone else was gone,” says Dewey. “I also checked up on Joe Berlinger and saw that he is a serious documentarian.” Capote eventually caught some flack for the dramatization inherent in the novel, but it doesn’t take away any of

t isn’t always a bad thing to be old fashioned. Sometimes that can be deemed an insult when describing music, movies or any kind of art that doesn’t break any new ground—but when describing Kenneth Branagh’s take on Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express,” it’s definitely a compliment. Christie’s novel from 1934 has been so widely read and Sidney Lumet’s 1974 film adaptation so beloved that it’s easy

to criticize this as something the filmmakers didn’t need to remake. As great as the last film is and as iconic as the story has become, Branagh’s remake was caught in an unenviable position: If it was too different, the film would be accused of disrespecting the source material. If it was too similar it would be called a pointless vanity project. The story follows what is arguably Christie’s most famous invention, the

the importance of the story being told. “Truman obviously oversold the book in terms of claiming that everything was true,” says Dewey. “But some critics have tried to make a big deal of the discrepancies, and some have gone so far to claim that the KBI (Kansas Bureau of Investigation) erred in its investigation if they actually didn’t do something that Truman said they did. Kind of bizarre, as if Truman was setting the standard to be followed in detective work. “An example is that Truman says that an agent went to the Hickock house the same day an informer had come forward. That didn’t happen like that—the house was visited several days later (the agent was a day’s drive away). So the critics claimed that the KBI botched it, could have caught the killers and could have foreclosed any further murders

committed by them. But the KBI did act right away based on the information, day after day tracking where they had gone, getting evidence that could support search warrants, etc. And the killers were obviously not around visiting their family after killing the family (they were in Mexico)—and there is no proof of other murders committed by them.” Berlinger is a master of research and always manages to find a different view of events. It will be interesting to see how “Cold Blooded” takes such wellknown information and re-contextualizes it for a modern audience. Here’s hoping Capote would be proud. SW

brilliant Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot (played by Branagh himself), as he attempts to unwind after solving a particularly difficult case. His berth on the Orient Express was a last-minute decision, as he figures it might be the quickest way to get him back to London so he can begin a well-earned vacation. The train is filled with a motley crew of individuals who seem complicated enough to be the central characters in their own story—not to mention side characters in someone else’s. There’s a severe nun, a drunk banker, two angry servants, a cruel princess, a racist doctor, a ravenous widower, a few pairs of doomed couples and an American gangster. When one of them turns up dead, Poirot must cut his vacation short to put the disparate pieces of the puzzle together and find the murderer. Branagh fills the cramped confines of the Orient Express with a remarkable cast including Judi Dench, Derek Jacobi, Willem Dafoe, Olivia Colman, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Penelope Cruz, Michelle Pfeiffer and Leslie Odom Jr. As uniformly excellent as the supporting cast is, none of them do the heavy lifting Branagh does in playing Poirot. His was a performance I expected to find a little self-indulgent, but instead thought was

completely lovely. Branagh doesn’t try to match the coolness of Albert Finney’s portrayal of Poirot, or Peter Ustinov’s wit or even the warmth of David Suchet, who played the role for over two decades. Instead, Branagh brings a haunted look to the bright blue eyes of the master detective. Poirot is wounded, and, even as he tamps down any excess emotion with his obsession for order and delight at being left alone, we can see his uncanny ability to detect crime is also a defense mechanism to help him avoid self-examination. This Poirot isn’t a debonair action hero like Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock, or even a high functioning sociopath like Benedict Cumberbatch’s. Branagh doesn’t try to make Poirot cooler or more modern. He’s just an old-fashioned detective who solves crimes with his nerdy powers of deduction instead of fists or a gun. He’s entirely old fashioned and perfect just the way he is. SW

“I didn’t want to harm the man. I thought he was a very nice gentleman. Soft spoken. I thought so right up to the moment I cut his throat.” — Perry Edward Smith t was a crime that shocked the country to its core when it happened. The United States wasn’t a more innocent place during that winter of 1959, but it did a better job of keeping its darkest corners under wraps. Two ex-convicts, Richard Eugene “Dick” Hickock and Perry Edward Smith, had been recently paroled, after hearing jailhouse tales about a farmer named Herb Clutter and the large amounts of cash he kept on hand. By the morning of Nov. 15, Clutter, his wife and two youngest children were dead. Hickock and Smith left the crime scene with only a radio, some binoculars and around $50 in cash. The crime and its aftermath are still of such stark importance to modern murder hounds like myself because of Truman Capote’s legendary true crime novel, “In Cold Blood”—and the recent films about his life like “Infamous” and “Capote.” That won’t be going away anytime soon, as Sundance TV has teamed up with Joe Berlinger, the filmmaker behind the incredibly important “Paradise Lost” documentaries, to take

Natural World Spiders on my keyboard By Jim Anderson

Ross Nicholas in Portland. I was working for the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and Ross called the museum to see if we wanted his boxes of bird’s eggs and bird study skins. Having no family, he was going to a nursing home in Hillsboro. He had collected the eggs and birds with William L. Finley and Herman T. Bohlman around 1906, and also had several of Bohlman’s beautiful old bird photographs. During our delightful conversation about his adventures with Finley and Bohlman, he so thrilled my wife and I that we gave our #2 son the name Ross. At the time, he also mentioned he was a founder of the Multnomah Athletic Cub and built canoes for hauling freight around Cascade Locks. What a guy! Ross told me he had some of his historic homemade paddles in his basement, and if I wanted them, we could go down and get them. When we opened the outside cellar doors, I heard the familiar breaking glass sound of black-widow webs crackling. As Ross started into the dark basement, probing ahead by waving his hands for the pull chain on the ancient light hanging from the ceiling, I could see all too many black-widow’s egg sacks hanging in the silk webbing. Without hesitation he plowed right into them, crashing through the webbing, sending spiders and egg sacks flying in all directions. It gave me the creeps watching him trashing around in that crackling webbing and ultimately black widows crawling all over us, so I said, very loudly: “Ross! Do you know what these spiders are?”

Jim Anderson

Charlotte-the-orb-weaver; cellar spider and jumping spider, who dropped in all at once — on me and my keyboard.

“Sure,” he mumbled, pulling on the string that clicked the 40-watt bulb on. “They’re black widows; they’ve been living down here long before my sister and I moved in over 50 years ago. They’re happy down here, and don’t bother me and I don’t bother them.” At that he arrived near the furnace where three beautifully hand-carved canoe paddles were stacked against the coal bin. “Here,” he said, wiping black widow spiders, silk and eggs sacks off of the paddles. What a guy! Back to now… Why all those spiders came wandering through my “office” while I was writing the piece on the hacklemesh spiders, I have no idea. I hope it was just coincidence, but you just never know… Jumper spiders and cellar spiders do not spin a web, so just their presence on my keyboard was a lovely surprise; the jumper snuck in from outside, but the cellar spider probably got out of the crawl space under the house before it

became food for one of the widows. The cellar spider was a female, but the jumper is a full adult male. His pedipalps (mating devices, aka “boxing gloves”) are below the spider’s huge main eyes, located between his first pair of legs, and testify to his being an adult male. So, with these thoughts in mind, may I suggest your life will be a lot more fun if you take the time to see and enjoy those tiny spiders that may occupy your home and office. However, on the other hand, if you don’t enjoy going out the back door in the morning and running head-on into one of the larger Charlotte’s cake platter-sized silken orb webs, put out a bird feeder for chickadees. They and their sharp-eyed cousins, the nuthatches, have cleaned me out of Charlottes. Those little feathered spider-getters live up to the names: gleaners, as they plunder the eves of my house for anything with six or eight legs to gobble up.  SW

o, there I was, sitting at my desk with hacklemesh spiders in the forefront of my old, tired, almost-wornout brain, when a hot-to-trot house spider suddenly ran down my face, onto my shirt, and vanished under my chair. Talk about being at the right place at the right time; it was followed by three more speedy little arachnids running across the keyboard of my old MacBook. My wife, Sue, doesn’t come into my office unless she really has to, because I will not destroy (as in clean up) the spiderwebs on my windows, walls, floor and ceiling. Not that she’s afraid of spiders—but she’s not a happy camper with all my litter, because I won’t go along with “dusting” and other household chores that destroy spider webs and make things “neat” in my sanctum. One day she caught me putting a bathtub spider in the clothes closet, and you can imagine how that went over. Now they get dumped out under the back porch. You see, there are black widows under my house (and probably yours as well). Quite a few of them. They find plenty to eat to keep them happy down there with all the invertebrates—and vertebrates, such as disease carrying insects, white-footed mice and the occasional Pacific tree frog that occupy that cool, damp space. Plus, black widows would rather live in the dark. It’s not uncommon to find dead, white-footed mice and occasional tree frogs sucked dry and suspended in a black-widow snare in the darkness under the house. Which reminds me of my favorite spider story: Back in the mid-’60s I met a most wonderful man by the name of

ne of the perks of living in Central Oregon is being surrounded by people who live an active life, whether it’s through skiing, running, climbing, cycling or a myriad of other sports. But the upside of this can also work against you. Being surrounded by other athletic people can be intimidating. When you’re huffing and puffing your way through a 2-mile jog, you just might get passed by a professional athlete such as Max King or Renee Metivier. This feeling isn’t limited to adults. Remember gym glass and hoping and praying that you wouldn’t be the last kid picked for the team sports? This is where Girls On The Run comes in. There are programs all over the country, and Central Oregon’s council has been operating in Bend for almost 10 years, at several schools. Despite having "run" in the name, the program is about more than that. “It’s less about running and more about setting a long-term goal. In this case completing a 5K,” explained Emily Usselman, Girls on the Run council director. “It has a body-positive aspect to it, which means no talk about exercising to lose weight. Instead, the focus is on exercising to feel better, mentally and physically. Right now, GOTR is hosting volunteer-led programs at Amity Creek Elementary, Silver Rail Elementary, Miller Elementary and the Boys and Girls Club. GOTR also hosts a middle school program called Heart & Sole at Bend International School, which allows the girls more independence. Girls On The Run is an inclusive program, Usselman emphasized, for girls of all athletic abilities, from the girl who’s been playing sports competitively since she started walking to the girl who typically shies away from physical activities.

“The best part of this program is watching the girls cross the finish line and do something they didn’t think they could do,” Usselman said. “You don’t realize how much they need this program at this age, but when the program starts you can see how low they are, and by the end they are power charged!” Program coordinators understand that many girls don’t have positive, supportive adult figures in their lives, which can leave them floundering. “I have always been into sports, and I always had a person there encouraging me to do my best,” Usselman said. “I can’t imagine what it would be like to be a third grade girl and having no confidence in being active, or even just going to school. No girl, especially girls that young, should feel like that.” After the 10-week session, the program culminates with the girls running or walking a 5K race. This year the race will be the I Like Pie race over the Thanksgiving holiday. Another benefit to this program is that the registration fee is on a sliding scale based on parents’ income. “Each girl has a star shining bright inside them, and some days that star gets covered by clouds,” Usselman explained, using some GOTR terminology. “When a girl comes to Girls On The Run, she has a team of girls and coaches to help clear away the clouds.”  SW Girls on the Run girlsontherun.org

Bend Real Estate Market Stands Strong During Traditional Seasonal Decline

T

price points. The largest share of homes sold were in the $100,000 to $400,000 price range, comprising about 49 percent of total home sales, followed by the $400,000-$600,000 range at about 31 percent. The remaining home sales for the higher end of the market comprised about 20 percent. Building permits issued decreased from 98 in October 2016 to 91 in October 2017 and up from 66 in September 2017. The increase in sales volume over September is reflective of the strong demand we all know exists in our local market. Typically we would expect seasonal declines at this time, but the high demand and increased sales volume are breaking historical trends. Declines in price are typical at this time of year, as reflected in the decrease in the median sales price and price per square foot, but our local decreases are quite minimal for the season. It will be interesting to see if the same trend continues for November statistics, which will mostly be a reflection of October activity—considering that most sales are written up at least 30 days prior to closing.

he Beacon Report, based on real estate statistics from our local MLS, released its report of the October 2017 figures on Bend single-family residence sales of 1 acre or less. Bend real estate price statistics for October 2017 were a surprise. Given the expected traditional seasonal decline and number of price reductions, the decline in median sales price from August 2017 to October 2017 was very minimal. According to the report, closed sales in Bend for the month of October 2017 increased by 22 transactions over September 2017, for a total of 228 sales as compared to 206 for September 2017. The median sales price decreased slightly from $418,000 in September to $411,000 for October. Not only were more homes sold at a lower median sales price, but they were sold at a lower price per square foot as reflected in the median price per square foot decrease of about 1 percent from September. The median price per square foot decreased from $216 for September 2017 to $214 for October 2017, and up from $206 in October 2016.

SCIENCE ADVICE GODDESS Reign Of Terrier

I know humans are typically your subject, but this is a relationship question, so I hope you’ll consider answering it. I have a new puppy (an 8-pound terrier mutt). I eventually want her to sleep in bed with me. However, she’s not toilet-trained yet, so I “crate” her at night in the laundry room (in a small dog cage). She cries all night. It’s heartbreaking. Please help! —Sleepless In Dogtown We call dogs “man’s best friend” and treat them just like our human best friends — if at 11 p.m. you say to your BFF, “Wow — wouldja look at the time,” gently remove her beer from her hand, and usher her to her cage in your laundry room. Crate training, recommended by vets, breeders, and the American Kennel Club, involves confining a dog to a “den” — a cage or gated-off area — with her bed and her favorite toys to dismember. However, the crate is not supposed to be used for punishment — as a sort of Doggy San Quentin — but, say, for times you can’t watch her to keep her from using the $3,000 leather couch as a chew toy or the antique Persian rug as an opulently colored hand-knotted toilet. The problem you’re experiencing in crating your dog at night comes out of doggy-human coevolution. Anthrozoologist John W.S. Bradshaw explains that over generations, we humans bred dogs to be emotionally dependent on us. Not surprisingly, dogs miss their owners, sometimes desperately, when they are separated from them — and other dogs don’t seem to fill the emotional void. In one of Bradshaw’s studies — of 40

Labrador retrievers and border collies — “well over 50 percent of the Labs and almost half of the collies showed some kind of separation distress” when left alone. Fortunately, puppies can be trained to understand that you’re picking up your car keys isn’t human-ese for “Goodbye forever!” Bradshaw’s advice in “Dog Sense”: “Pick up keys, go to door, praise dog.” Next: Pick up keys. Go out door. Come right back in. Praise dog. Next: Go out for increasingly longer intervals — and “go back a stage” (timewise) if the dog shows anxiety. And good news for you: You probably don’t have to spoon with your dog to keep her from feeling separation distress at night. My tiny Chinese crested now sleeps (uh, snores like a cirrhotic old wino) on my pillow, resting her tiny snout on my neck. However, back before she had her bathroom business under control, I went through the crying-atnight-in-the-crate thing (actually a gated alcove by Amy Alkon my office). I felt like the second coming of Cruella de Vil. Then I remembered something about dogs: They have a sense of smell on the level of superhero powers. Maybe my dog didn’t have to be in bed; maybe near bed would do. I snagged a big see-through plastic container (maybe 4 feet long and 3 feet high) that my neighbors were tossing out. At bedtime, I put it next to my bed and put my dog in it with her bed and a pee pad. She turned around three times, curled up, and went to sleep — after giving me a look I’m pretty sure said, “Hey, next time you’re gonna throw me in ‘the hole,’ gimme some notice, and I’ll menace the mailman and chase the neighbors’ bratty children with a sharpened Nylabone.“

ASTROLOGY

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Everything that

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Of all the signs in the zodiac, you Sagittarians are most likely to buy a lottery ticket that has the winning numbers. But you’re also more likely than everyone else to throw the ticket in a drawer and forget about it, or else leave it in your jeans when you do the laundry, rendering the ticket unreadable. Please don’t be like that in the coming weeks. Make sure you do what’s necessary to fully cash in on the good fortune that life will be making available. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): In the game of basketball, if a player is fouled by a member of the opposing team, he is given a “free throw.” While standing 15 feet away, he takes a leisurely shot at the basket without having to deal with any defenders. Studies show that a player is most likely to succeed at this task if he shoots the ball underhanded. Yet virtually no professionals ever do this. Why? Because it doesn’t look cool. Everyone opts to shoot free throws overhand, even though it’s not as effective a technique. Weird! Let’s invoke this as a metaphor for your life in the coming weeks, Capricorn. In my astrological opinion, you’ll be more likely to accomplish good and useful things if you’re willing to look uncool.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 1991, Aquarius rock star Axl Rose recorded the song “November Rain” with his band Guns N’ Roses. It had taken him eight years to compose it. Before it was finally ready for prime time, he had to whittle it down from an 18-minute-long epic to a more succint nine-minute ballad. I see the coming weeks as a time when you should strive to complete work on your personal equivalent of Axl’s opus. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Thomas Edison was a prolific inventor whose work led to the creation of electric lights, recorded music, movies, and much more. When he was 49 years old, he met Henry Ford, a younger innovator who was at the beginning of his illustrious career. Ford told Edison about his hopes to develop and manufacture low-cost automobiles, and the older man responded with an emphatic endorsement. Ford later said this was the first time anyone had given him any encouragement. Edison’s approval “was worth worlds” to him. I predict, Pisces, that you will receive comparable inspiration from a mentor or guide or teacher in the next nine months. Be on the lookout for that person.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): “Many people go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after,” observed Henry David Thoreau. The spirit of Thoreau’s observation is true about every one of us to some extent. From time to time, we all try to satisfy our desires in the wrong location, with the wrong tools, and with the wrong people. But I’m happy to announce that his epigram is less true for you now than it has ever been. In the coming months, you will have an unusually good chance to know exactly what you want, be in the right place at the right time to get it, and still want it after you get it. And it all starts now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I predict that during the next ten months, you will generate personal power and good fortune as you ripen your skills at creating interesting forms of intimacy. Get started!

Here are some tips to keep in mind. 1. All relationships have problems. Every single one, no exceptions! So you should cultivate relationships that bring you useful and educational problems. 2. Be very clear about the qualities you do and don’t want at the core of your most important alliances. 3. Were there past events that still obstruct you from weaving the kind of togetherness that’s really good for you? Use your imagination to put those events behind you forever.

can be invented has been invented.” - Charles H. Duell, Director of the U.S. Patent Office, 1899. “Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible.” - Lord Kelvin, President, Royal Society, 1895. “All the music that can be written has already been written. We’re just repeating the past.” - 19th-century composer Tschaikovsky. “Video won’t be able to hold on to any market it captures after the first six months. People will soon get tired of staring at a box every night.” - filmmaker Darryl F. Zanuck, commenting on television in 1946. I hope I’ve provided enough evidence to convince you to be faithful to your innovative ideas, Scorpio. Don’t let skeptics or conventional thinkers waylay you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may be entertaining an internal dialog that sounds something like this: “I need a clear yes or a definitive no . . . a tender revelation or a radical revolution . . . a lesson in love or a cleansing sex marathon -- but I’m not sure which! Should I descend or ascend? Plunge deeper down, all the way to the bottom? Or zip higher up, in a heedless flight into the wide open spaces? Would I be happier in the poignant embrace of an intense commitment or in the wild frontier where none of the old rules can follow me? I can’t decide! I don’t know which part of my mind I should trust!” If you do hear those thoughts in your brain, Gemini, here’s my advice: There’s no rush to decide. What’s healthiest for your soul is to bask in the uncertainty for a while. CANCER (June 21July 22): According to storyteller Michael Meade, ancient Celtic culture believed that “a person was born through three forces: the coming together of the mother and father, an ancestral spirit’s wish to be reborn, and the involvement of a god or goddess.” Even if you don’t think that’s literally true, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to have fun fantasizing it is. That’s because you’re in a phase when contemplating your origins can invigorate your spiritual health and attract good fortune into your life. So start with the Celtic theory, and go on from there. Which of your ancestors may have sought to live again through you? Which deity might have had a vested interest in you being born? What did you come to this earth to accomplish? Which of your innate potentials have you yet to fully develop, and what can you do to further develop them?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I predict that starting today and during the next ten months, you will learn more about treating yourself kindly and making yourself happy than you have in years. You will mostly steer clear of the mindset that regards life as a numbing struggle for mere survival. You will regularly dream up creative ideas about how to have more fun while attending to the mundane tasks in your daily rhythm. Here’s the question I hope you will ask yourself every morning for the next 299 days: “How can I love myself wigth devotion and ingenuity?”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This may be the most miscellaneous horoscope I’ve ever created for you. That’s apropos, given the fact that you’re a multifaceted quick-change artist these days. Here’s your sweet mess of oracles. 1. If the triumph you seek isn’t humbling, it’s not the right triumph. 2. You may have an odd impulse to reclaim or recoup something that you have not in fact lost. 3. Before transmutation is possible, you must pay a debt. 4. Don’t be held captive by your beliefs. 5. If you’re given a choice between profane and sacred love, choose sacred.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The next ten months will be an ideal time to revise and revamp your approach to education. To take maximum advantage of the potentials, create a master plan to get the training and knowledge you’ll need to thrive for years to come. At first, it may be a challenge to acknowledge that you have a lot more to learn. The comfort-loving part of your nature may be resistant to contemplating the hard work it will require to expand your worldview and enhance your skills. But once you get started, you’ll quickly find the process becoming easier and more pleasurable.

frequently write about my fondness for solvent-free concentrates, and did so in my recent series covering my trip to California to check out the adult use cannabis program rollout in January. Selecting a concentrate or extract is already overwhelming, and sometimes you aren’t getting the best advice. I wrote of a budtender at a San Francisco dispensary who insisted that the “live resin” he sold me met my clearly and emphatically-stated request that I was only interested in solvent-free concentrates, such as rosin. His stoned explanation that because the butane used in this was ”pretty much taken out,” it did qualify as a solvent-free concentrate. All love and respect to every butane and propane processor across this great land, but no, the live resin I bought was not a solvent free extract. When we talk about SFC, it refers to a finished product that has a high concentration of THC, CBD and terpenes— the oils that give cannabis its flavor and scent, greater in potency than in the cannabis flower(s) from which it’s taken. Hash is a SFC, for example. Any dispensary I’ve been to in Washington, Oregon and California has had more solvent-extracted products than non solvent (Exception: RIP Calyxes.) But I recently came across a dispensary that had a larger collection of solvent free than not, and produce in house what they offer up. Just off Portland’s SE 82nd Avenue., Alternative Remedies has a well-curated collection of flower and concentrates, including a wide spectrum of SFC that I had not seen before at dispensaries, under the name Permaculture Solutions. I talked with Ryan Biglione, who owns and operates both Alternative Remedies and Permaculture Solutions with his wife, Martine Lelievre. He started with a clarification. “Technically, the “solventless” explanation is a bit tricky, because water is considered a solvent, but it’s the only solvent that doesn’t add chemicals or substances not already currently in our bodies, and vital to life. The main focus for us is that we believe in the healing powers/properties of cannabis.” said Biglione, “so we see any additives (other than water) as

potentially hazardous to your health. By being a “solventless” processor, we are maintaining the integrity of the cannabis itself, by utilizing ONLY water and ice in our processing methods. “We started as a single-source processing lab, meaning we grew our plants specifically to process our garden into cannabis concentrates,” he continues. “We only processed what we grew ourselves—paying close attention to growing methods, as well as processing methods we have cultivated over the years. We have fostered extremely selective relationships with other farmers that maintain the highest quality standards in their gardens, as well as the genetic base and growing techniques required.” He explained the differences in their offerings. ”Both our rosin and live rosin are ultra refined bubble hash products, hand collected and machine pressed using stainless steel products for screening—no nylon!” says Biglione. “Our rosin is made with dry trim material, and our live rosin uses only fresh frozen whole plant material, and is produced with only water and ice. Our ice wax is hand washed and micro separated, and we only pull the first wash for consumption, so the integrity of the product is maintained. Temperature and humidity are controlled at every step, for resin preservation.” The finished product sparkles in the light, and is so pure that it “bubbles” when smoked (hence, “bubble hash”), leaving behind virtually no ash when done. The production process removes the chlorophyll, leaving you with a “full melt” concentrate that fills your mouth with intense flavor. For old school heads who miss the Nepalese Temple Ball hash experience, this will bring back memories, and AR produces both single-strain and mixed-strain products. The ice wax looks like bright and clean fine sand, and the rosins are closer to shatter in consistency. All can be consumed using a dab rig setup, although I used a vaporizer and got stellar results. Using hydrocarbons to produce a concentrate is an art form, and so is doing so using water and ice. Recommended for any craft cannabis concentrate fan.
