While the threats posed by climate change are daunting and can seem insurmountable, a window remains in which to act. But that window is closing fast. That’s why local environmental activists are joining together to hold the Bend Climate March in conjunction with the UN climate talks in Paris. Adding to that global conversation is the Letters to the Future project, a collaboration by alternative news media outlets across the country. What’s your take on addressing climate change? Sound off by sending a (signed) letter to the Editor.

IN REPLY TO “FROM THE EDITOR” (11/19)

The “Misguided Tourism” piece was spot on. Aside of St. Charles, the beer business, and construction there is no major industry here to employ our hapless newbies. Were you here in 2009? Do you not recognize that the same corrupt business people, their companies, and market dynamics are ready to strike again, with impunity? A tourism-based employment base is what it is: seasonal, highly cyclical, and vulnerable. I guess the silver lining of another recession here is that there will be plenty of vacant homes and rentals, as construction evaporates. But the real masterpiece was “Bend Landlord Rebuttals.” I’m still trying to envision the Benevolent Landlord/Investor. Mr. Bailey is clearly a “self-made” man. I mean really, 3 (not just 1) paper routes as a teenager. But let’s face it: Investors are investors, meaning that they should understand the risk and rewards of investing. The inherent costs of owning property (imagine routine maintenance, capital improvements every now and then, and taxes) are inescapable. But unless you’re stupid, you knew that going in. Yet you invested! I particularly have little sympathy for the droves of opportunistic buzzards that descended on this town after the recession, many of whom don’t even live here. So please, enough with your sacrifice and enough about the service you are providing by renting property here. If you weren’t making money you wouldn’t be doing it. But I will give you this: You nailed the profile of our beloved Bend Millennial Drifters, right down to the non-stop smart phone, lattes, and tats. They are an entitled lot, they contribute little to the community other than beer sales, and they are multiplying like rabbits. —Harry Williamson

5 VOLUME 19 ISSUE 48 / November 26, 2015 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Last week’s Opinion Letters were most interesting. Highly accurate and thoughtful assessments in “Reply to Housing Pressure” and “Bend’s Misguided Tourism Focus.” I’d agree that Bend’s reactive City Council (or at least a couple of members) is finally beginning to understand the nature of classic planning tools, not the least of which is zoning. And, yes, the UGB is long-term. But it does represent the State’s interest in curbing urban sprawl and out-of-control growth, which Bend is deftly pursuing. It is disheartening to hear our local leaders pronounce rapid growth as inevitable given Bend’s incredible appeal. That’s just plain wrong! Smart, limited growth is possible, as many progressive (and equally desirable) communities in America have proven. It’s OK to admit the obvious, that our local government’s ineptitude and lack of vision and the City’s crumbling infrastructure are proof that Bend needs to pause and catch up before we turn the Chamber, business boosters, and opportunistic developers loose, untethered. For example, my street, Linster St., lies a half a block from Wall St., in town. As it was in 1900, it is an unmaintained dirt road. And I can assure you that not one dime of the proposed gas tax proceeds will change that. Some of that money will be spent on potholes downtown, but most will go to subsidize gateways to new development on the Eastside. Trust me.

IN REPLY TO “NO LICENSE TO DRIVE” (11/19) Get documentation showing that the immigrant has started the citizenship process and I think it’s fair to give them the PRIVILEGE to a driver’s license. Then again, like the article says, “the measure passing won’t change anything.” This means those who are illegally here and have no license will continue driving. I have no issues with immigration from any country, as long as the immigrants are working on their citizenship. I want newcomers to this country to pay in to social security and everything else that entails being an American citizen. —Brent Howk But shouldn’t the lawsuit be against the people of Oregon who created the Initiative and voted for this measure with 66 percent? Or does the state have the ability to deny an initiative on the ballot on unconstitutional grounds...so would then be libel? And would this require citizenship or that the person wanting a license is in the process of working towards citizenship? Inquiring minds want to know. —Doug Cristafir

very time a terrorist group that aligns itself with Islam attacks, we see a backlash against the peaceful Muslim majority. And while the most recent acts of terrorism occurred in “far away lands,” their aftershocks can be felt even in Central Oregon.

for evaluating Syrian refugees that typically takes 18-24 months to complete to ensure that none are attempting to enter the country under false or nefarious pretenses. It also fails to explain in what way Syrian refugees threaten our “way of life.”

Following the attacks in Paris, governors of multiple states came out with statements saying they would not accept Syrian refugees—despite the fact that they don’t actually have the authority to turn refugees away, and that most Syrians are fleeing the Daesh (also known as ISIS), not trying to join them. Even Oregon Gov. Kate Brown was initially silent on the issue, though she eventually issued a statement of support.

But the growing movement to keep Syrian refugees out is more than just flawed foreign policy, it’s a red flag signaling the start of a slippery slope marked by fear and ignorance. This cold welcome is already drawing comparisons to refugee crisis created by the Holocaust. And while that analogy might seem extreme, it should be taken seriously. When a presidential candidate, and one currently enjoying the top spot among Republicans in the polls, seriously suggests creating a registry of Muslims in America, it’s a grave wake-up call.

“Clearly, Oregon will continue to accept refugees. They seek safe haven and we will continue to open the doors of opportunity to them,” Brown wrote on Twitter. “The words on the Statue of Liberty apply in Oregon just as they do in every other state.” But not all Oregon lawmakers seem to agree. Two of them, Rep. Kurt Schrader (a Democrat) and Rep. Greg Walden (the Republican representing Central Oregon), both voted last Thursday to block Syrian and Iraqi refugees from resettling in the United States. That bill passed the U.S. by a wide margin of 289-137. “The terrorist attacks in Paris make clear just how serious the growing threat of ISIS is to the free world,” Walden said in a statement following the bill’s passage. “While our nation has a strong tradition of welcoming people who are seeking a better life, we cannot allow terrorists to take advantage of our compassion. It would be reckless and dangerous to bring in more Syrian refugees to this country until the government can ensure that none among them poses a security threat to the American people and our way of life.” Walden’s statement ignores the fact that the United States already has a stringent process

It can be easy to think that all this has nothing to do with us. After all, we’re a mostly white community with an exceptionally small number of Arab or Muslim residents, and we’re unlikely to see many Syrian refugees resettled in Central Oregon. But this anti-refugee sentiment, which knows no geographic bounds, is a symptom of a larger ill. It’s our fear of the other, our unwillingness to see those with different backgrounds as part of the same social fabric. One needs look no further than Dallas, Oregon, where a City Councilor recently went on a social media tirade against both Muslims and transgender students. Or Lewis and Clark College, where a black student was recently assaulted following racist rants on the app Yik Yak. By failing to see the common humanity in those who are different from us, we fall prey to the kind of tyranny this country was founded to escape. And that’s where the real danger lies. Not in Syrians fleeing a brutal civil war, but in our own festering hatred fueled by fear. The whole point of terrorism is to make people fearful. But that only works if we give into its demands.

FROM BEND TO PARIS Local organizers say climate action can’t wait

I

n conjunction with the 21st United Nations Conference on Climate Change, Bend organizations are teaming up for the People’s Climate March on Nov. 29. The Bend march was scheduled to occur simultaneously with the Paris climate march, but all events that were set to take place on public streets have been cancelled due to increased security following the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks that claimed 128 lives. The Paris Climate Conference is still scheduled to take place from Nov. 29 through Dec. 11. The goal of the 21st Conference of Parties talks is to reach an agreement that will hold U.N. member states accountable for adhering to a carbon emissions reductions goal—with a tentative five-year review—to check their progress. The earth’s projected temperature rise is fueling the need for change, according to the COP21 website, and studies and reports submitted by countries showing their current emissions indicate if current carbon rates continue, the earth’s average temperature could rise by as little as 2 degrees or as many as 6 degrees in the next 100 years. In 1992, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change recognized human-caused climate change, but no comprehensive international agreement has been established and enforced to help reduce carbon emissions. Since then, the consensus among 97 percent of scientists publishing studies in peer-reviewed journals concur the earth’s rising temperature is likely human caused, according to NASA. But the Bend People’s Climate March organizers say this global problem can be addressed with smaller steps, beginning with state and city laws and actions down to small habits people can implement in their homes on a daily basis to be more climate

conscious.

tipping point.

Bend march organizer Joanne Richter is a watershed scientist who decided to form a steering committee to make climate change action a priority.

“The United Nations has realized for very long [time] that it’s not only nations it’s cities, too, and cities provide 70 to 80 percent of the carbon emissions,” Hodiak says. If climate change becomes a legislative priority, Oregon can get ahead of what could potentially affect its agriculture and outdoor jobs. “The main thing is for us in Central Oregon is we are facing a lot of risk…and that’s why we’re asking our lawmakers to move forward on this in order to protect our citizens and our businesses because Oregon farmers, beer makers, ranchers, wineries, and retail businesses are forecast to have projected losses and risks from climate change.”

“There are several things that I would like to see happen to raise awareness about climate change,” she says. “It’s real, it’s human caused, and we’re experiencing climate change in Bend with our snowpack, higher freezing level, and we’re not getting snow at lower elevations.” The steering committee is composed of 350 Deschutes, Central Oregon Landwatch, Bend YouCAN, The Environmental Center, the Citizen’s Climate Lobby, the Oregon Natural Desert Association, and the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal club. Richter says the purpose of the event is to bring attention to the climate talks. “We want to educate folks and let them know what they can personally do to combat climate change,” she says. Richter recommends replacing light bulbs with LEDs, making sure your home is properly insulated, keeping an eye on your thermostat, and being mindful of turning off your car instead of idling, she says. “Every little small action like that adds up to help reduced greenhouse gas.” She adds that the committee is also “advocating to keep fossil fuels in the ground”—especially the ones under public lands. Richter says fossil fuel extraction “has to stop.” Diane Hodiak with 350 Deschutes, the local chapter of a national grassroots climate group, says many people feel the Paris Climate Conference may be the last opportunity to make a significant commitment to reducing carbon emissions in order avoid what scientists are calling the catastrophic

While the City has some policies in place, Hodiak is concerned that Bend doesn’t have a comprehensive climate plan like Eugene, Ashland, Corvallis, and Portland. She says this specific plan incorporates policies addressing everything from infrastructure—like eco-roofs and green streets—to clean air, transportation, and waste reduction encompassing protection for citizens’ health and economic well being. Senior Policy Analyst Gillian Ockner with the City of Bend explains what actions the City has taken. “We have a Strategic Energy Management Plan with energy use reduction goals, a commute trip reduction program, and plans for reduction of vehicle miles traveled through the MPO,” she says. In 2007, the City adopted the Mayor’s Climate Protections Agreement, which urged state and federal governments to reduce the fossil fuel dependence and develop clean energy resources. Today, Ockner says the City has “initiated actions on almost all of the items listed in the 2007 Council Resolution. We are on track to meet our goal of reducing electrical

Bend City Councilors adopted and approved several resolutions during the Nov. 18 work session and regular meeting. The Council voted to unanimously authorize the purchase of six ambulances and emergency medical equipment for up to 1.6 million dollars. A resolution allowing upgrades for wastewater treatment was also adopted. The Clean Water State Revolving Fund Loan Agreement with the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality was approved for $12,200,000.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture made millions of dollars available to owners of farmlands, wetlands, and grasslands to help restore and protect their natural lands. The Natural Resources Conservation Service Oregon is accepting applications until Jan. 15 for the 2016 Agricultural Conservation Easement Program—which provides resources helping landowners to conserve wetlands and agricultural lands. The purpose of the program is to protect the United States’ food supply by not allowing non-agricultural use of working food-producing lands. The funds are also intended to help preserve crucial water resources and wildlife lands.

Business Oregon and Governor Kate Brown announced a commitment of $250,000 in grants to support nonprofits, public agencies, and entrepreneurial programs in rural areas. The new rural entrepreneurship program will help expand business opportunities for people living throughout the state. In August, the state made an investment to help strengthen Oregon startups.

Ockner says Bend has a number of energy reducing policies in place that include installing solar panels on its parking garage, and using LED bulbs, replacing motors and pumps within the utilities systems with smaller and more efficiently operating motors. All City of Bend employees are also encouraged to walk, bike, take the bus, or carpool to work. Bend City Councilor Nathan Boddie will speak at the Climate March. He says climate change is important to him and the City is in need of a comprehensive climate plan. “I think it would be hard to find anybody who doesn’t find climate change threatening,” he says. “It’s threatening from a natural resources perspective, habitat loss, fisheries, wildlife, and economics.” Boddie says that this Council recognizes the need to work on addressing climate change “particularly since the City gets a lot of its drinking water from snow melt. We don’t have big reservoirs; we have a big snowpack or we don’t—in the case of last year—and then we could be in trouble.” Hodiak says the list of things people can do to reduce climate change is endless. She says eating meat largely contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. “Animals and livestock predominately contribute a minimum of 15 to 20 percent of carbon emissions on the planet, and the UN has pretty much said that eating meat is unsustainable,” she explains. Other smaller steps people can take are simple things like

biking, walking, and taking the bus more. “Vote for climate policy, it brings economic benefits, jobs, and [a better] quality of life to Bend.” Councilor Boddie says, “The other thing that we can do locally is support the regional efforts that do start to chip away at that more global problem.” He adds that two thirds of energy in Bend comes from coal. “This is [from] the industrial revolution era and it’s a really nasty way to make energy. It’s bad for health, it’s expensive and…all this coal imported from Idaho, Montana, Wyoming.” At the Bend Climate March, Boddie will be

talking about why he’s supporting a ballot imitative for Nov. 2016 that he says “will get Pacific Power and Oregon off of coal fired power in a sort of sustained, thoughtful way over the next 20 to 30 years, which will actually improve the economic viability of pacific power and our rate payer.” He adds, “And it also brings people together from different parts of the economic, environmental business world in the community and the more those people in groups come together and talk to each other, the more likely we are to be able to work together.”

will include speakers and music by iChiringa! March participants will travel along Wall Street, Greenwood Avenue, Bond Street, and Franklin Avenue. Organizing the March is not only important for Richter; she understands the problem will continue to get worse for younger generations. “As a scientist and mom, I felt compelled to build steering committee, but as my daughter’s generation has to deal with it, it’s a moral imperative to do something about this now.”

LETTERS TO THE FUTURE Scientists, authors, and activists predict the outcome of the upcoming UN Climate Talks in Paris orld leaders from more than 190 countries will convene in Paris during the first two weeks of December for the long-awaited United Nations Climate Change Conference. Will the governments of the world finally pass a binding global treaty aimed at reducing the most dangerous impacts of global warming … or will they fail in this task?

Letters to the Future, a national project involving more than 40 alternative weeklies across the United States, set out to find authors, artists, scientists, and others willing to get creative and draft letters to future generations of their own families, predicting the success or failure of the Paris talks—and what came after. Some participants were optimistic about what is to come—some not so much. We hereby present some of their visions of the future.

I’M FIGHTING FOR YOU By Rhea Suh

Dear Grandchildren, I can only imagine the wonderful world you are growing up in. I think of that world—your future—almost every day. I think about how to make sure it is a place where all your hopes and dreams can come true. A long time ago, my parents traveled across the world from Korea to the United States in search of a brighter future for me and my sisters. Today, I am writing you from Paris, a city that I have traveled across the world to get to, in order to make sure the world does the same for you. I’m fighting for you, for everyone in your generation across the world, to ensure that

you have more than a fighting chance at that bright future. A world without the dangers of global climate change is the world that you will inherit. What is climate change? Never heard of it? I’m so very glad if you haven’t. Let me try to explain. I warn you though, this can be kind of scary. When we first started building up our cities, roads, and towns in what was called the Industrial Revolution, we burned all sorts of fuels—coal, oil, and natural

gas. While these things helped us heat our homes, drive our cars, and expand our cities, we didn’t realize that they also clouded our air, dirtied our water, and made us sick. More than that, the burning of all those fuels made our planet sick. All the other animals and plants that we share this world with were getting sick too. The planet became warmer, which created a mixed up chaos of terrible hurricanes, tornadoes, raging wildfires, drought and increased hunger, growing rates of asthma and lung disease, and the extinction of animals at an unprecedented rate. So my dear grandchildren, we faced a choice. We could keep doing what we had been doing, or we could make the choice to take a stand for our future—your future and the planet’s future—by creating the framework to begin to

move away from this scary legacy. The wind turbines and solar panels that power your world, electric cars, high-speed trains, and solar airplanes weren’t so commonplace in my time. They required a revolution in how we think about energy, about our relationship to the world, about our faith in our own capacity to innovate and change. What took us so long? Sigh. It’s a long story, but like many of the children’s books you grew up with, it was a story of greed, short-sightedness, and wizards with too much gold. But against these challenges, sometimes with great bravery, people— young and old from every nation—stood up and demanded that we take the steps to curb this terrible scourge. I hope you will know this to be true. I hope you will remember that many years ago, your grandma and many others across the world stood up and demanded that we make the world a better place. I hope you know that it was a difficult path, just like my parents so many years ago. And I hope you know we did it thinking of you and the future you now inherit. Rhea Suh is the president of the Natural Resources Defense Council, a nonprofit environmental advocacy organization.

N SHIFT THE FOOD SYSTEM

one of the big changes we made toward the sustainable food system you are lucky enough to take for granted.

Dear Future Family, I know you will not read this note until the turn of the century, but I want to explain what things were like back in 2015, before we figured out how to roll back climate change. As a civilization we were still locked into a zero-sum idea of our relationship with the natural world, in which we assumed that for us to get whatever we needed, whether it was food or energy or entertainment, nature had to be diminished. But that was never necessarily the case.

In our time, the U.S. Department of Agriculture still handed out subsidies to farmers for every bushel of corn or wheat or rice they could grow. This promoted a form of agriculture that was extremely productive and extremely destructive—of the climate, among other things. Approximately one-third of the carbon then in the atmosphere had formerly been sequestered in soils in the form of organic matter, but since we began plowing and deforesting, we’d been releasing huge quantities of this carbon into the atmosphere. At that time, the food system as a whole—that includes agriculture, food processing, and food transportation—contributed somewhere between 20 to 30 percent of the greenhouse gases produced by civilization—more than any other sector except energy. Fertilizer was always one of the biggest culprits for two reasons: it’s made from fossil fuels, and when you spread it on fields and it gets wet, it turns into nitrous oxide, which is a much more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Slowly, we convinced the policy makers to instead give subsidies to farmers for every increment of carbon they sequestered in the soil. Over time, we began to organize our agriculture so that it could heal the planet, feed us, and tackle climate change. This began with shifting our food system from its reliance on oil, which is the central fact of industrial agriculture (not just machinery, but pesticides and fertilizers are all oil-based technologies), back to a reliance on solar energy: photosynthesis. Carbon farming was one of the most hopeful things going on at that time in climate change research. We discovered that plants secrete sugars into the soil to feed the microbes they depend on, in the process putting carbon into the soil. This process of sequestering carbon at the same time improved the fertility and water-holding capacity of the soil. We began relying on the sun—on photosynthesis—rather than on fossil fuels to feed ourselves. We learned that there are non-zero-sum ways we could feed ourselves AND heal the earth. That was just

MY ENDLESS SKY By Stephen K. Robinson

Dear Future Robinsons, Back around the turn of the century, flying to space was a rare human privilege, a dream come true, the stuff of movies (look it up), and an almost impossible ambition for children the world around. But I was one of those fortunates. And what I saw from the cold, thick, protective windows of the Space Shuttle is something that, despite my 40 years of dreaming (I was never a young astronaut), I never remotely imagined. Not that I was new to imagining things. As you may know, I was somehow born with a passion for the sky, for flight, and for the mysteries of the atmosphere. I built and flew death-defying gliders, learned to fly properly, earned university degrees in the science of flight, and then spent the rest of my life exploring Earth’s atmosphere from below it, within it, and above it. My hunger was never satisfied, and my love of flight never waned at all, even though it tried to kill me many times. As I learned to fly in gliders, then small aircraft, then military jets, I always had the secure feeling that the atmosphere was the infinite “long delirious burning blue” of Magee’s poem, even though of all people, I well knew about space and its nearness. It seemed impossible to believe that with just a little more power and a little more bravery, I couldn’t continue to climb higher and higher on “laughter-silvered wings.” My life was a celebration of the infinite gift of sky, atmosphere, and flight. But what I saw in the first minutes of entering space, following that violent, life-changing rocket-ride, shocked me. If you look at Earth’s atmosphere from orbit, you can see it “on edge”—gazing towards the horizon, with the black of space above and the gentle curve of the yes-it’s-round planet below. And what you see is the most exquisite, luminous, delicate glow of a layered azure haze holding the Earth like an ethereal eggshell. “That’s it?!” I thought. The entire sky—MY endless sky—was only a paper-thin, blue wrapping of the planet, and looking as tentative as frost. And this is the truth. Our Earth’s atmosphere is fragile and shockingly tiny—maybe four percent of the planet’s volume.

Of all the life we know about, only one species has the responsibility to protect that precious blue planet-wrap. I hope we did, and I hope you do. Your ancestor, Stephen K. Robinson After 36 years as an astronaut—with a tenure that included four shuttle missions and three spacewalks—Robinson retired from NASA in 2012. He is now a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the University of California, Davis.

WILD THINGS Alexis Bonogofsky

Dear Future Montanans, I have asked that you not open this note until 2115. There is a place I want you to go to read this letter, the place where I wrote it. It is a river valley in southeast Montana that thousands of people fought to protect from a massive coal mine in my time. We won. For centuries before me people cherished and protected this land you are sitting on and I have no doubt they are still doing so in your time. I know this because people will always come for what is underneath the ground in the Tongue River country. Our fights do not have an end; they are passed down from one generation to the next. Your Montana, no doubt, is a much different place than my Montana. Although you are a hundred years and thousands of miles away from the 2015 Paris Climate Summit, what happened there was consequential to your life. The climate treaty that emerged was historic but it did not save us. Decades of political timidity and inaction put things into motion that could not be undone. The treaty did not save the glaciers in Glacier National Park (have they renamed it yet?) or the wildlife that could not adapt or the people that live on the coasts. I never put much faith in the idea that pieces of paper produced by governments create change. I have faith in the land. I have faith in people. I know promises made by politicians only have meaning when the people make them have meaning. If you are living in a world where we have managed to mitigate the most severe impacts of climate change it isn’t because governments agreed to reduce climate emissions at Paris; it is because while world leaders were negotiating in board rooms, citizens were shutting down coal plants, stopping coal mines, protecting their homelands, and taking control. It is because we took what they gave us, said it wasn’t enough, and demanded


N more the next year, the year after, and the year after. We mourned deeply for what we knew we had already lost and yet had the courage to move forward. It was our only option. Only you know how we did. Be still for a moment, the wild things might let you see them. A young Montana goat rancher, writer, and climate change activist, Bonogofsky is featured in the new documentary This Changes Everything, based on Naomi Klein’s book of the same name.

By Annie Leonard

It’s hard to imagine writing to the granddaughter of my own daughter, but if you’re anything like her—strong, smart, occasionally a little stubborn—then I have no doubt the world is in good hands. By now your school should have taught you about climate change, and how humans helped to bring it about with our big cars, big homes, big appetites, and an endless desire for more stuff. But what the teachers and textbooks may not have passed on are the stories of incredible people that helped make sure the planet remained beautiful and livable for you. These are stories of everyday people doing courageous things, because they couldn’t stand by and watch communities poisoned by pollution, the Arctic melt, or California die of fire and drought. They couldn’t bear to think of New Orleans under water again, or New York lost to a superstorm. Right now, as politicians weigh options and opinion polls, people are organizing and uprising. It’s amazing to see and be a part of. In the year that led up to the 2015 meeting of global leaders on climate change in Paris, kayakers took to the water to stop oil rigs. Nurses, musicians, grannies, preachers, and even beekeepers, took to the streets. The message was loud and clear: “We want clean, safe, renewable energy now!” Were it not for this glorious rainbow of people power, I don’t know whether President Obama would have stepped up and canceled oil drilling in the Alaskan Arctic or the sale of ten billion tons of American coal, that were set to tip the planet towards climate chaos. But he did. This paved the way for an era of unprecedented innovation, as entrepreneurs and academics fine-tuned the best ways to harness the unlimited power of our wind, waves, and sun, and make it available to everyone. We’ve just seen the first ever oceanic crossing by a solar plane and I can only imagine what incredible inventions

I want to tell you about this because there was a time we didn’t think any of it was possible. And there may be times when you face similar challenges. Generations before you have taken acts of great courage to make sure you too have all the joys and gifts of the natural world—hiking in forests, swimming in clean water, breathing fresh air. If you need to be a little stubborn to make sure things stay that way, so be it. Onwards!

YOU DESERVE A CHANCE By U.S. Sen. Harry Reid

As a young boy growing up in Searchlight, the unique beauty of the Nevada desert was my home. Our family didn’t travel or take vacations, but we were able to visit Fort Piute Springs, which was just 15 miles from our home. Fort Piute Springs was a starkly beautiful place. From the gushing ponds of water to the beautiful lily pads and cattails, Fort Piute’s beauty was magical. Decades later I returned to visit Fort Piute Springs and found the magical place of my childhood in ruins. I remember thinking how sad it was that my descendants would never get to appreciate the stark beauty of the desert I cherished as a child. It was in that moment that I decided to fight to protect our environment. Throughout my career I fought to protect my home and my country from the permanent damage of climate change. I thought about the world you would live in, the burdens you would face, and the health issues that could one day challenge your very existence. You deserve a chance to experience the beautiful world that I grew up in. We all need clean air, clean water, and natural resources to lead healthy lives. The idea that our actions could jeopardize your future was simply unbearable. The only way to solve this problem was if we all worked together to save the planet for you and future generations. During my lifetime, the overwhelming majority of scientists across the world concluded that pollution from burning fossil fuels was beginning to raise temperatures and alter our cli-

mate. These scientists predicted that if countries failed to work together to replace fossil fuels with cleaner energy sources, the world would face uncontrollable rising temperatures and sea levels, water shortages, climate-fueled migration crises, and landscape-altering wildfire, drought, and extreme weather. At the close of 2015, the world finally did something about it. Everybody knew we needed to address climate change and that a failure to lead could destroy the progress we fought so hard to achieve and endanger your future. In the face of this reality, the United States pressed on and led a historic global agreement to change the course of climate change worldwide. We had already done so many things to make Nevada a cleaner, greener place—but now the entire world was ready to join us. I’m proud of the work we did to protect our environment for you. I hope by now you can run just about everything on renewable energy and you no longer have to worry about if your children will suffer from asthma because of smog. Today you may face a number of issues I could have never imagined. My hope has always been that the United States’ efforts to combat climate change would create a cleaner future for my descendants and future Nevadans. I hope that you are no longer burdened with the issue of climate change and can enjoy more of the Nevada I have always known. But if you face similar challenges, draw strength from my experiences and continue to fight for a cleaner environment. A United States Senator from Nevada, Reid is a long-time member of the Democratic Party and served a lengthy term as Senate majority leader.

SEIZE THE MOMENT By Bill McKibben

Dear Descendants, The first thing to say is, sorry. We were the last generation to know the world before full-on climate change made it a treacherous place. That we didn’t get sooner to work slowing it down is our great shame, and you live with the unavoidable consequences. That said, I hope that we made at least some difference. There were many milestones in the fight—Rio, Kyoto, the debacle at Copenhagen. By the time the great Paris climate conference of 2015 rolled around, many of us were inclined to cynicism.

N And our cynicism was well-taken. The delegates to that convention, representing governments that were still unwilling to take more than baby steps, didn’t really grasp the nettle. They looked for easy, around-the-edges fixes, ones that wouldn’t unduly alarm their patrons in the fossil fuel industry.

But so many others seized the moment that Paris offered to do the truly important thing: Organize. There were meetings and marches, disruptions and disobedience. And we came out of it more committed than ever to taking on the real powers that be. The real changes flowed in the months and years after Paris, when people made sure that their institutions pulled money from oil and coal stocks, and when they literally sat down in the way of the coal trains and the oil pipelines. People did the work governments wouldn’t—and as they weakened the fossil fuel industry, political leaders grew ever so slowly bolder. We learned a lot that year about where power lay: less in the words of weak treaties than in the zeitgeist we could create with our passion, our spirit, and our creativity. Would that we had done it sooner! An author, educator, and environmentalist, McKibben is co-founder of 350.org, a planet-wide grassroots climate change movement.

BRIEF OPPORTUNITIES

of Representatives quit his job because his party—called “the Republicans,” refused absolutely to work with or compromise with the other party, now defunct, called “the Democrats.” The refusal of the Republicans to work with the Democrats was what led to the government collapse in 2025, and the break up of what to you is the Former United States. The states that refused to acknowledge climate change or, indeed, science, became the Republic of America, and the other states became West America and East America. I lived in West America. You probably live in East America, because West America became unlivable owing to climate change in 2050.

What is the greatest loss we have bequeathed you? I think it is the debris, the junk, the rotting bits of clothing, equipment, vehicles, buildings, etc. that you see everywhere and must avoid. Where we went for walks, you always have to keep an eye out. We have left you a mess. But I know that it is dangerous for you to go for walks—the human body wasn’t built to tolerate lows of 90 degrees Fahrenheit and highs of 140. When I was alive, I thought I was trying to save you, but I didn’t try hard enough, or at least, I didn’t try to save you as hard as my opponents tried to destroy you. I don’t know why they did that. I could never figure that out.

That the world was getting hotter and dryer, that weather was getting more chaotic, and that humans were getting too numerous for the ecosystem to support was evident to most Americans by the time I was 45, the age your mother is now. At first, it did seem as though all Americans were willing to do something about it, but then the oil companies (with names like Exxon and Mobil and Shell) realized that their profits were

Dear Great-Great-Granddaughter, Do you remember your grandmother Veronica? I am writing to you on the very day that your grandmother Veronica turned 7 months old—she is my first grandchild, and she is your grandmother. That is how quickly time passes and people are born, grow up, and pass on. When I was your age—now 20 (Veronica was my age, 65, when you were born), I did not realize how brief our opportunities are to change the direction of the world we live in. The world you live in grew out of the world I live in, and I want to tell you a little bit about the major difficulties of my world and how they have affected your world. On the day I am writing this letter, the Speaker of the House

at risk, and they dug in their heels. They underwrote all sorts of government corruption in order to deny climate change and transfer as much carbon dioxide out of the ground and into the air as they could. The worse the weather and the climate became the more they refused to budge, and Americans, but also the citizens of other countries, kept using coal, diesel fuel, and gasoline. Transportation was the hardest thing to give up, much harder than giving up the future, and so we did not give it up, and so there you are, stuck in the slender strip of East America that is overpopulated, but livable. I am sure you are a vegan, because there is no room for cattle, hogs, or chickens, which Americans used to eat. West America was once a beautiful place—not the parched desert landscape that it is now. Our mountains were green with oaks and pines, mountain lions and coyotes and deer roamed in the shadows, and there were beautiful flowers nestled in the grass. It was sometimes hot, but often cool. Where you see abandoned, flooded cities, we saw smooth beaches and easy waves.

Dear Rats of the Future: Congratulations on your bipedalism: it’s always nice to be able to stand tall when you need it, no? And great on losing that tail too (just as we lost ours). No need for that awkward (and let’s face it, ugly) kind of balancing tool when you walk upright, plus it makes fitting into your blue jeans a whole lot easier. Do you wear blue jeans—or their equivalent? No need, really, I suppose, since you’ve no doubt retained your body hair. Well, good for you. Sorry about the plastics. And the radiation. And the pesticides. I really regret that you won’t be hearing any birdsong anytime soon, either, but at least you’ve got that wonderful musical cawing of the crows to keep your mornings bright. And, of course, I do expect that as you’ve grown in stature and brainpower you’ve learned to deal with the feral cats, your one-time nemesis, but at best occupying a kind of ratty niche in your era of ascendancy. As for the big cats—the really scary ones, tiger, lion, leopard, jaguar—they must be as remote to you as the mammoths were to us. It goes without saying that with the extinction of the bears (polar bears: they were a pretty silly development anyway, and of no use to anybody beyond maybe trophy hunters) and any other large carnivores, there’s nothing much left to threaten you as you feed and breed and find your place as the dominant mammals on earth.

Anyway, I just want to wish you all the best in your endeavors on this big blind rock hurtling through space. My advice? Stay out of the laboratory. Live simply. And, whatever you do, please—I beg you—don’t start up a stock exchange. With Best Wishes, T.C. Boyle P.S. In writing you this missive, I am, I suppose, being guardedly optimistic that you will have figured out how to decode this ape language I’m employing here—especially given the vast libraries we left you when the last of us breathed his last.  

Maybe you have dug them up. Maybe you’re making use of them now. Maybe you’re frugal and ingenious in ways we in the wealthy world have not yet chosen to be. There’s an old teaching from a rabbi called Nachman who lived in a town called Bratslav centuries ago: “If you believe it is possible to destroy, believe it is possible to repair.” Some of us believe that. We’re trying to spread the message. Friends are working on genetic editing that will bring back the heath hen, a bird that went extinct almost 80 years ago. The last member of the species died in the woods just a few miles from my home. Did we succeed? Do you have heath hens, booming their mating calls across the sand plains that sustain them? If you do, it means that this idea of repair caught on in time, and that their habitat was restored, instead of being sold for yet more beachside mansions. It means that enough great minds turned away from the easy temptations of a career moving money from one rich person’s account to another’s, and instead became engineers and scientists dedicated to repairing and preserving this small blue marble, spinning in the velvet void. We send out probes, looking for signs of life on other worlds. A possible spec of mold is exciting—press conference! News flash! Imagine if they found, say, a sparrow. President addresses the nation! And yet we fail to take note of the beauty of sparrows, their subtle hues and swift grace. We’re profligate and reckless with all this abundant life, teeming and vivid, that sustains and inspires us.

I just flushed my toilet with drinking water. I know: you don’t believe me: “Nobody could ever have been that stupid, that wasteful.” But we are. We use air conditioners all the time, even in mild climates where they aren’t a bit necessary. We cool our homes so we need to wear sweaters indoors in summer, and heat them so we have to wear T-shirts in mid-winter. We let one person drive around all alone in a huge thing called an SUV. We make perfectly good things—plates, cups, knives—then we use them just once, and throw them away.

Apologies too about the oceans, and I know this must have been particularly hard on you since you’ve always been a seafaring race, but since you’re primarily vegetarian, I don’t imagine that the extinction of fish would have much affected you. And if, out of some nostalgia for the sea that can’t be fully satisfied by whatever hardtack may have survived us, try jellyfish. They’ll be about the only thing out there now, but I’m told they can be quite palatable, if not exactly mouth-watering, when prepared with sage and onions. Do you have sage and onions? But forgive me: of course you do. You’re an agrarian tribe at heart, though in our day we certainly did introduce you to city life, didn’t we? Bright lights, big city, right? At least you don’t have to worry about abattoirs, piggeries, feed lots, bovine intestinal gases and the like—or, for that matter, the ozone layer, which would have been long gone by the time you started walking on two legs. Does that bother you? The UV rays, I mean? But no, you’re a nocturnal tribe anyway, right?

The origins of Small Business Saturday/Shop Small Saturday is a marketing campaign founded by American Express, but the company wasn’t interested in allowing only small businesses who accept their cards to participate. “It’s kind of interesting that a worldwide company would favor that, but American Express is accepted at a lot of small businesses, and so they saw it as a way to counteract what was happening on Black Friday and have that day,” says Porsche. The Shop Local Saturday movement began in 2010, and so far this year, 17,000 people have pledged to patronize local businesses on Nov. 28, according to the American Express website. However, this is the first year the Downtown Bend Business Association is sponsoring a Shop Small Saturday event by offering shopping passports.

Post recession, one local business that has survived hard times and the competition from online retailors has now been operating for 22 years. Local Joe proprietor A.J. Cohen says brick and mortar stores offer something that online shopping doesn’t. “You buy a pair of jeans and you’re going to end up sending them back two or three times and was it worth saving $30 or whatever?” he says. But no matter where people shop, Cohen believes the most important aspect of shopping local is keeping money in the community. “If I’m using a plumber, [and] they’re patronizing my business, I can now afford to pay the plumber, [but] if they take their money out of town… then its not recirculating through our community.” Porsche says keeping money local not only allows businesses to thrive—businesses are also more inclined to spend their profits here. “Let's say if you spend a hundred dollars at a locally-owned business; $68 of those $100 stays within the community versus if you spend a hundred dollars at a chain, big box store, it’s $43,” he says. “So the owner of the business or the manager of the business they aren’t in Atlanta, Georgia, or New York City; they’re here. So they are buying ballet

lessons for their kids, they’re doing their own shopping, and so it really impacts the community a lot more than if everybody shopped at big box stores.” But big box stores aren’t necessarily bad for the community either, according to COCC Economics Professor Jon Wolf. “What I’ve found over the last 25 years or so—whether it’s Walmart or any of the big boxes—they seem to be catalysts for change,” he says. “If a local business—which specializes in whatever product they’re selling is doing well—I think the existence of a big box actually makes them do better. It’s a catalyst for positive change.” Wolf says competition is competition, and as an economist he studies the choices consumers have. For example, he says he could save a few hundred dollars by buying snow tires online, but then he wouldn’t have anyone to fix a flat or change his tires and believes that aspect of customer service is one of the reasons people shop locally. “You can go to Deschutes Brewery and the owner’s hanging out. You can go to Broken Top Bottle Shop and it’s run by its owners,” Wolf says. “Wouldn’t you rather have something local where you could build that relationship?” Another local business that has provided downtown Bend shoppers with customer service and wide selection of choices is Leapin’ Lizards. Suzy Reininger and her husband Bob purchased the toy store in 2009, but she says the community is the reason the business survived the recession.

“We made sure that we had very fair pricing, specialty items, and diverse merchandising,” she says. As the owner, she cares about what people are buying. Knowing the price range, age, and type of occasion helps Reininger cater to specific customer purchases. “We offer free gift wrapping at any dollar amount— and yes, I’ve wrapped a 75 cent mini animal many times—and we offer a very simple rewards program.” Even if you can’t find that perfect holiday gift, Porsche says gift certificates to Bend’s restaurants and breweries are also great options. He also adds that shopping downtown and helping the community feels good, and if you are looking for one more reason to spend money at a local business, Porsche says “[they] donate 250 percent more to local charities than non-locally owned businesses.” Bend business owners know their customers, and even if you’re walking in for the first time, Cohen, Reininger, and their employees greet you and want to know how they can help you. “The price can be the only factor,” Porsche explains. “And if it was just one thing, then everyone would eat on the dollar menu from the fast food place because that’s clearly the cheapest hamburger, but is it the best burger, is it locally sourced, and does it taste as good?”

And these retailers are hoping that if you’re contemplating waddling to a store shortly after partaking in your Thanksgiving feast, you'd consider waiting until Saturday to shop at local businesses that set Bend apart from a community of big box stores.

“We’re encouraging folks to get their passport stamped at over 10 businesses—there are over 50 that are participating—and then one lucky person will get a gift basket valued at over $2,000 and part of that gift basket is donations from these participating businesses.”

Had Me At Cello SOUND You Portland Cello Project brings their brilliance to Bend

THE SOURCE

SUGGESTS By Jared Rasic

here is nothing in the world that sounds quite like the Portland Cello Project. Whether they are playing original compositions like founding member Gideon Freudmann’s sweeping yet intimate “Denmark” or Douglas Jenkins’ epic and inviting arrangement of Kanye’s “All of the Lights,” PCP is easily one of the most exciting musical acts touring right now. With more than 1,000 songs in Portland Cello Project’s repertoire, you will never see the same show twice or even be able to predict the new levels of artistic excellence they will be achieving next. Diane Chaplin, director of educational outreach for PCP (and an excellent cellist as well) took the time to answer a few questions the unfamiliar listener might have about the Portland Cello Project, their history, and what to expect from one of their shows. Source Weekly: What was the initial concept for Portland Cello Project and how did the group form? Diane Chaplin: Portland Cello Project was formed in a sort of “accidental” way in 2007—several cellists thought it would be fun to get together and play music, which wasn’t something they usually got to do with each other. It sounded so good that they decided to do “just one show” in a club, and that went so well that they decided to continue doing it.

ZANDER REESE SW: Is it a rotating group or is there usually the same core group? Are there still members that have been playing with the group since the beginning of the project? DC: There are still cellists performing with the Cello Project that have been with us since the beginning. Some people have moved on, though, either because they are now living in other cities or have taken different career paths, or are too busy with their own performing to play with PCP regularly. In addition, sometimes one member or another will have another performing opportunity that prevents them from going on tour, so we have a small group of core players that do most of the performances, and then an expanded roster that we can call upon when we need more players. SW: How do you begin to break down your hip-hop covers? Do you find it’s more of a challenge to place the classical structure onto hip-hop? DC: Most of our arrangements come from the same concept, which is that the cello is primarily a melodic instrument. We don’t really look at the group as having a classical structure, but rather that all music has the same basic structure: melody, bass line, rhythm, inner voices, maybe some sparkly bits. The biggest challenge in the hip-hop genre is to mimic the sound of a voice that’s speaking more than singing, and we do that

with a kind of rhythmic patter of repeated notes. The rest of the hip-hop music layers fit right into the basic music structure. SW: How many songs does PCP have in its repertoire right now? DC: Our official answer is about a thousand, but of course for any one show we aren’t choosing from that entire repertoire. There are usually somewhere between 75 and 100 songs that we might be touring in a given season, and when we have a special event, we might have an additional 20-30 songs that are pulled together just for that.

Singer-songwriter Zander Reese brings his signature sound to Bend Brewing Company. His Jack White /Nirvana influenced sound never overshadows his own artistic contributions to the genre. For such a young guy, there is a ton of soul to his music and if you haven’t caught him before, now would be the perfect time. 6:30 pm. Saturday, Nov. 28. Bend Brewing Company, 1019 NW Brooks St. No cover.

SW: What can someone who has never seen a Portland Cello Project show expect? DC: Our audiences can expect a really wide variety of interesting and fun music. This season we are featuring some songs by Elliott Smith, to support the album we released a year ago, and we’ll definitely perform some of them in Bend. We have set of mixed genre songs we call Music of the Night, which features a new original song as well as jazz, movie music, and popular classical music. Our shows are high energy and we love to perform, which I think translates into a show that everyone will enjoy.

CULTURE A Boy and His Dog

CTC brings Charlie Brown to life

ART WATCH By Corinne Boyer

By Jared Rasic 35

Obviously, the musical is based on Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip, Peanuts, which ran new strips weekly for fifty years. Peanuts introduced the world to Charlie Brown, Sally, Snoopy, Woodstock, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Peppermint Patty, Marcy, Pig Pen, Franklin, and many more. The strip mostly focused on Charlie’s day-to-day struggles and Snoopy’s extremely busy imaginative adventures.

Caldera Arts was one of 12 nonprofit organizations to receive the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards. It’s the first time an Oregon nonprofit has received the award, and Executive Director Tricia Snell and Caldera Arts student Alena Nore traveled to the White House on Nov. 17 to accept the award from First Lady Michelle Obama.

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown opened off-Broadway in 1967 with music and lyrics by Clark Gesner and book by John Gordon (which was just a pseudonym for Gesner and the original cast). The structure of the musical suceeds capturing that feeling of reading a new Peanuts strip every Sunday. The entire show takes place across one typical day in the life of Charlie Brown from being late to school to watching the stars with his friends. Some scenes are only long enough for a quick joke and others take their time to set up Charlie Brown’s emotions and how he deals with the people (and dog) in his life. CTC’s production of You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown is fun, light, and fast-paced, while also doing some interesting things with the visuals. From Deb De Grosse’s direction to Thom Porterfield’s set design, the audience is instantly placed in that comic strip world and Jim Allen’s bright lighting design with Shawn Akacich’s costuming just further cement that suspension of disbelief. With fun performances by Don Delach (Charlie Brown), Patty Davis (Lucy), Evan Smith (Linus) and David Simpson (Schroeder), the show stays quick on its toes. Michael Coffman excels as Snoopy, a character he is diving into for a second time. Coffman was a delightful and consistent presence on the Central Oregon stage for more than a decade until his retirement from theater a couple of years ago. But he couldn’t sit this one out.

Nore, a high school senior, was selected to accept the award on behalf of Caldera after “completing a few essay questions and being interviewed,” she says. “I actually didn’t know details about the award, including that we would be traveling to Washington.”

“After performing in over 40 shows in Bend theater, I needed to take a little break” says Coffman. “When I saw the auditions for You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown at CTC, a wave of nostalgia ran across my heart. The role of Snoopy left an indelible impression on me when I performed the show in high school 30 years ago. That role taught me how to be passionate and expressive. It truly shaped my personality. In addition, the songs of the show have been running through my head since high school—whenever I had a homework assignment that was overdue, whenever I had a moment of failure, or whenever I took a long look at my life and thought, ‘Not bad—not bad at all.’” One of the most incredible things about the show is the performance of Tara Johnson as Sally Brown. Her Sally explodes across stage, bringing the manic spirit of Charlie Brown’s little sister to life. The amazing thing is not just the performance, but the fact that she took over the role just a week and a half

before opening night. Losing actors happens sometimes, but it’s rare to see someone outright own a role with such little rehearsal time. These happy accidents are what make theater such a thrill to be a part of and to witness. The opening night crowd seemed to love the show, with belly laughs and “d’awwwwws” abounding. It is a good show to bring kids to since seeing these characters living and laughing should be a super surreal and trippy experience for them (and that’s what kids totally need more of). It’s almost impossible not to smile at this show and I double-dog dare you to try.

Nore says receiving the award from Michelle Obama was surreal. “When I went onto the stage with Tricia, I had to tell myself not to cry because it was overwhelmingly joyous,” she says. “When I hugged the First lady I said, ‘Thank you,’ because I knew that she not only cared for every single person in that room, but also for all of the people who work behind the scenes.” Nore’s portfolio contains a range of watercolor, oil on canvas, and digital prints of portraits and animals. After graduating from high school, she says she wants to attend college. “I plan to major in psychology and either double major or minor in studio art. I will then get certification for counseling and therapy and begin to practice art therapy,” she says. “I aspire to help people understand how they think, encourage free-artistry, and facilitate therapeutic activity.” Caldera Arts pairs students with outdoor-arts experiences and hosts multiple programs offering students a chance to participate at no cost. The organization works within middle schools in Central Oregon and Portland, and they also make college scholarships available to students who have been members of a program for two years or more. Caldera was awarded $10,000, which will be used to fund the organization’s arts programs. During the ceremony, Michelle Obama said, “Arts education is not a luxury; it is a necessity. It’s really the air many of these kids breathe, it’s how we get kids excited about getting up and going to school in the morning. It’s how we get them to take ownership of their future.” Nore says, “I would absolutely love to return to Caldera in the future as staff or as an artist in residence.”

Changing of the Guard

Broken Top Bottle Shop welcomes Chef Ingrid Rohrer By Brian Jennings 37 VOLUME 19 ISSUE 48 / November 26, 2015 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

New Broken Top Bottle Shop Chef Ingrid Rohrer whips up new menu items including Chinook salmon and half-chicken entrees. Photo courtesy of Broken Top Bottle Shop.

O

ne of Bend’s most unique restaurants, featuring more than 400 bottled brews in a massive 12-door cooler, is unleashing a new weapon. No, it’s not another bottled brew—it’s a new chef and a fine-tuned menu. The Broken Top Bottle Shop has welcomed Chef Ingrid Rohrer, who has a rich background in preparing foods with an ethnic influence. Although the menu has evolved, many popular entrée items remain. According to BTBS owner Diana Fischetti, the restaurant’s mission of having something for everyone will not change. The restaurant will continue to serve creative vegan and vegetarian meals, provide gluten free dishes, and continue to smoke meats on site. BTBS will also feature local products. Fischetti says that her restaurant plans to continue its flair for “high-end comfort food using Rohrer’s ethnic touch and featuring locally-grown produce as the seasons allow.”

FOOD & BEER EVENTS

Chef Ingrid Rohrer migrated from California

and most recently was Executive Chef at 10 Below in Bend’s Oxford Hotel. There she built strong relationships with local producers and looks forward to cultivating those ties. Her 30-year restaurant background includes working as executive chef for California’s well-known Bon Appétit Management Company, which, while serving thousands of people per week, celebrates the use of local, organic products grown within 150 miles of their vast, nationwide network of cooking facilities. Her past experience includes influence by Mexican, Indian, and Chinese chefs. Ingrid is a graduate of the California Culinary Institute, now Le Cordon Bleu of San Francisco. New on the menu are half-chicken entrees and wild Chinook salmon. Chicken is cooked on a Traeger, a popular Oregon-manufactured grill. Each side is slow cooked for an hour at 180 degrees and then smoked at very low heat for half an hour. Ribs are also slow cooked for an hour on each side, then smoked for 30 minutes at the end. The wild Chinook is procured

from Warm Springs. Popular items such as the restaurant’s famous mac and cheese, a variety of chicken wings, its popular cheeseburger, and signature Caesar salad will continue to be a mainstay on BTBS’s menu. The restaurant’s popular cheese plate will still be there for you. “50Cent Wing Sunday” is here to stay. “Thirsty Thursday Tacos” will also continue, and Chef Rohrer says that this is where she gets creative. Using local suppliers, she utilizes fresh produce and meats according to seasonal availability and puts her ethnic influences to work in her creations. The end result is a variety of flavors that change with available ingredients. There is one other dish that Rohrer says people attempt to order all the time: tri-tip steak and rice. The problem is that it’s a menu item meant for dogs. This eclectic restaurant understands that Bend has become one of the most popular towns for pet owners and their dogs. Dogs dine outside on the patio while

ven with all the blockbuster buyouts and takeovers making headlines in the beer business as of late (the latest: Ballast Point in San Diego, purchased by Corona distributor Constellation Brands for a cool $1 billion), there’s still one overriding theme across the industry: It’s growing, and growing fast. That was the message brought across last week at the grand opening of Silver Moon’s new brewing facility near the southern edge of Redmond. It’s just a stone’s throw away from Juniper Brewing Co., but quite a bit larger—15,000 square feet, every bit of it taken up during the event by visitors listening to MOsely WOtta, taking in the One Beard to Rule Them All competition, and trying the new Tart of Gold sour ale. “It’s amazing,” Head Brewer Jeff Schauland said as he gave a tour of the shiny new 30-barrel system occupying one side of the warehouse-style space. “This is a brand-new system, and it’s probably the most stateof-the-art one I’ve worked on.” It looks the part, featuring a touchscreen-based control system and a water-filtering system to ensure the beer tastes the same between the two

brew locations. (Silver Moon’s older 10-barrel system will remain in operation behind the Bend pub.) The initial system, which is scheduled to begin brewing test batches next month, will be used to amp up production on Silver Moon’s three flagship beers—the Get Sum pale ale, Chapter 2 session ale, and IPA 97, already one of their most popular kegs across Oregon and Washington. All three will be debuting in cans next year, featuring a snazzy new logo and art design—“we’re farming that out to Craft Canning + Bottling in Portland at first,” Schauland said, “but we’ll have a canning line of our own here in the facility before too long.” What does all this mean for Silver Moon in 2016? More quantity, but more quality, too. “With this system, we’ll be capable of producing 7,000 barrels a year in Redmond and a thousand or so more in Bend,” Shauland noted. “Having this system here will free us up in Bend to make smaller batches of neat stuff—I’m definitely looking forward to releasing some more English and German styles.”

Through Time OUTSIDE ANewRide bikeway proposed in the Painted Hills

GO HERE By Brian Jennings

regon’s richest prehistoric landscape could soon have a new addition.

Currently in its “recommended” phase, the Painted Hills Scenic Bikeway would become the state’s 15th official scenic bike route if approved by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. Similar to the concept of designating scenic roadways, signs would be installed along the 120-mile proposed bikeway in Wheeler County to mark a route for those who want to pedal while taking in the paleontology of the area. The proposed route would follow the John Day River, passing by rainbow-ribboned layers of stone age sediment and all three units of the fossil beds national monument like a journey back in time. Cyclists on the Painted Hills Scenic Bikeway would also wind through the towns of Fossil, Spray, Service Creek, Kimberly, and Mitchell, which proponents hope will boost the economies in those rural communities. “Several years ago the State Bikeway Committee came out and rated [the proposed route] very highly. It’s an area that’s pretty close to Bend that not a lot of people know how beautiful it is,” Parks Department Bicycle Recreation Coordinator Alexandra Phil-

lips says. “Just a few weekend cyclists coming through and staying at the bed and breakfast and eating at the cafe in Fossil would bring significant help to the community, whereas in Bend a couple more road cyclists wouldn’t be noticed because the cycling community is already so strong.” According to Phillips, the project would be relatively inexpensive because no new paths would need to be carved out in order to create the Painted Hills Scenic Bikeway. The proposed route snakes across existing roads, making signage the biggest cost. By designating the route as an official scenic bikeway, Travel Oregon and the State Parks Department would join in promoting the path, making it more convenient for cyclists to plan every detail of their trip, from tracking coordinates to finding a continental breakfast. “Someone could go to oregonscenicbikeways.org, print out the map, and read the ride description; and they can also go to the companion site rideoregon.com to see all the businesses along the route to find a hotel and plan their trip in a few minutes.” Phillips hosted a public meeting on behalf of the State Parks Department last Thursday evening in Fossil to share information about the project and collect public comment. In

order to designate the bikeway, feedback from the community needs to come in for the State Parks Committee to consider its decision. Because the project requires little funding and has economic incentives for several communities around the Painted Hills, there isn’t much opposition, according to Phillips. Some have concerns about safety, though. Phillips says safety hazards would be minimized by communicating with the Oregon Department of Transportation on improvements for road cycling. The public will have a month to submit comments on the bikeway project before a final version is submitted to the State Scenic Bikeway Committee and State Parks Commission. If designated, the Painted Hills Scenic Bikeway could open as early as this spring, according to Phillips. “It’s a very inexpensive project that can promote biking in a really scenic area that could use some economic development.” Submit any public comment on the Painted Hills Scenic Bikeway at oprd.publiccomment@ oregon.gov or Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department, 725 Summer St. NE Suite C, Salem, OR 97031.

Nobody knows for sure how old she is, but members of the Friends of the Badlands Wilderness speculate she could be nearly 2,000 years old. If so, she survived major historic and natural events. While Northern Europe was being invaded by Vikings, “The Old One” spread her roots. While the Black Plague was spreading throughout Europe, “The Old One” was sending out more branches and reaching toward the sky. While men were fighting the Crusades, “The Old One” and others like her were soaking in the sunshine of Central Oregon. When Europeans colonized America, “The Old One” was beginning to reach her height and girth while the lava landscape was eroding and forming the shape of what we see today. “The Old One” lived through it all—droughts, wars, and naturally harsh conditions that we as humans can only imagine. The Badlands Wilderness is one of Oregon’s newest wilderness designations and is the result of extensive collaboration by local ranchers, environmentalists, conservationists, and elected leaders. Obtaining wilderness status is no easy task. The proximity to Bend makes it one of the most accessible wilderness areas in the region. The hikes are easy, and the trail system is well maintained. In a half-day outing you can hike for miles to see these magnificent trees and still get back to Bend in time for a well-earned pint of your favorite microbrew. While many think of wilderness as lush, green forests in the backcountry, the Oregon Badlands Wilderness offers a different and unique landscape right in our own backyard. You can view the landscape and “The Old One” in a short video on the Bent blog at bendsource.com.

VOLUME 19 ISSUE 48 / November 26, 2015 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Locals who help preserve the Badlands Wilderness, 15 miles east of Bend near Highway 20, call it “The Old One.” The juniper trees found in this 30,000-acre wilderness are some of the oldest in the world. Some may have taken root during biblical times. Some 80,000 years ago, lava from Newberry Crater to the south poured over the area forming unique canyons and rock vistas where one can see the landscape for miles in all directions. One nearby tree has been verified by core samples to be 1,680 years old. But “The Old One” is bigger in height and girth.

Life Skills

Planting seedlings for the future By Jim Anderson

I

n this grand old, helter-skelter world of ours there are times when young people with special needs sometimes fall through the cracks. Thankfully, there are educators who are aware of this and set about to make sure it doesn’t happen on their watch.Tyler Winterholler, a Life Skills teacher at Mountain View HS in Bend is one of them, and so is Karen Gentry, Director of Discover Your Forest, in Bend. When those two got their heads together recently, positive things began to happen. Discover Your Forest—a subsidiary of Discover Your Northwest—is a nonprofit partner of the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests dedicated to promoting stewardship, conservation education, and volunteer programs. Discover Your Forest’s goals include engaging youth to create the next generation of stewards, deepening community involvement through volunteerism, and providing programs and events that increase the number and diversity of visitors. Gentry is conducting similar restoration projects with other Bend schools and will be expanding the projects into Madras in 2016. Winterholler works with young people at Mountain View who have special needs, and the Life Skills program run by the school fits right into their lives like warm gloves on a cold day. In fact, that’s exactly what the students were doing last week just off Skyliners Road, west of Bend, being fitted with work gloves— with hand warmers in them—in preparation for doing a much-needed restoration project. When Winterholler pulled to the parking area adjacent to several acres of torn up real estate, the Life Skills students piled off the bus, eager to get started on a tree-planting project. After everyone was outfitted with warm jackets, gloves, and hand-warmer, then safety glasses and hard hats, Gentry got everyone’s attention and taught them the fine art of planting seedling lodgepole pines. After that was done, each student picked out a partner who was than issued five of six seedlings and a tree-plating spade. The idea was to plant each tree at least ten to 11 paces from each other, which took only a moment

for the students to understand, then separate and begin planting. The weather that day wasn’t what one could call friendly. There was a chilly wind blowing across the torn up, bare ground that made planting trees a little difficult, but the kids went at it like it was a warm day in May and

got the job done. “One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eightnine, ten,” could be heard all throughout the afternoon as the groups of Life Skills students spread out across the bare ground digging the holes and planting the trees that would someday become a forest. As they planted, Gentry

and Winterholler gave them big compliments for their good work and reminded them of the future when they would some day return to see a healthy lodgepole pine forest standing there. Cory, one of the students taking part in the Life Skills project, said he enjoyed working with his friend Tim on the restoration project. “Going out to the restoration area to plant the trees was a lot of fun. It felt good to know we were helping out the environment and the recreational area being built over there. There’s still a lot more to do over there and I hope to help out as much as I can. I’m excited to see how it will look years from now. And I know when that recreational area is finished all of us who helped out can go there and say “we did this...’” Cory said. “I also really enjoy working with Tim, we usually go off on our own during projects or jobs, like when we were planting the trees, we went off to areas that were untouched by everyone else. Working with Tim is a great experience, we have fun while getting our work done.” The philosophy of teacher Winterholler’s claim, “Whoever comes through the door, we’ll find him a job,” was apparent in the workmanship of his students. “They may not get into algebra,” he said, “but restoration projects like these will have them looking forward to preparing themselves for the future.” As it is with all community projects, it is the people who see projects like these for the positive contributions they are who get involved. Winterholler and his kids are always looking for new work projects that will provide the opportunity for these special kids to take part in what will help train them for their future lives when they step into the world of making-a-living.

If you know of, or have a project that will provide the opportunity for the young men and women of Mountain View HS to get involved, Tyler can be reached via email at tyler.winterholler@bend.k12.or.us.

Killer Instincts

The Assassin asks for nothing less than complete submission By Jared Rasic 45 VOLUME 19 ISSUE 48 / November 26, 2015 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

U

pon first viewing, The Assassin can almost be impenetrable. There is court intrigue, hidden motivations, honor taking precedence over logic, and, of course, graceful and gravity-defying wirework. Basically, all the things that make a wuxia martial arts movie great. But Director Hsiao-Hsien Hou and cinematographer Ping Bin Lee are not interested in telling a plot-driven, period martial arts story; instead they have made a film that runs solely on its absolutely stunning visual palette and subtext. The plot mechanics are simple, though. The film takes place in 9th century China during the Tang Dynasty. Nie Yinniang (the luminous Qi Shu) was sent away from her home when she was ten years old because the military governor (Tian) she loved and was promised to is instead politically betrothed to another. Yinniang was raised by a nun who trained her, for more than a decade, to be a master swordswoman and who then sends her to Weibo, a remote province where Tian now rules. The nun has instructed the assassin to kill everything Tian loves and then to murder him last. The assassin’s time in Weibo is the main crux of the film and her quandary about killing Tian is the emotional center of the film. None of this matters though. Plot resolution comes completely secondary to the visuals, which are second to none in any other film released this year. This is a movie filled with

luxurious long takes of the assassin, filmed through gossamer curtains as she watches people go about their happy lives while she decides whether to end them. There is a shot of a woman standing on a mountaintop as mist floats in that is the most purely cinematic image I have seen since Under the Skin. The trailers are selling this film as a little bit Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon with a dash of House of Flying Daggers or Hero, but this expectation can only lead to disappointment. The martial arts in this film are brief moments of violence punctuating the long silence of this calm and beautiful world. Plus, the fight choreography is edited quickly and brutally, not allowing the viewer to take beauty from the movement and the forms. For a movie that has long, minute-plus shots, the fact that the action is so mercilessly chopped and given no time to breathe definitely seems like a stylistic choice, if one that doesn’t immediately make sense logically. The Assassin is less Crouching Tiger and more of a slowly paced, bloodless, sexless "Game of Thrones," if held under the sway of dream logic. The final 20 minutes of the film introduces magic into the story in a way that somehow feels completely outlandish, yet organic to the weird flow of the piece. It is a credit to the expert direction and cinematography that none of it ever feels disjointed. If dragons showed up during the closing credits it would have seemed inevitable and just another part

FEATURED FILM EVENTS

of this flawless world they have created. There were moments I had to remind myself that The Assassin was filmed in 2015. The sets, the locations, the costumes, and the performances place the film so squarely in Tang Dynasty China that it sometimes feels like an unearthed piece of cinema more than a Best Foreign Film Oscar contender. While the elliptical and somewhat obtuse nature of certain story elements will frustrate some viewers and leave them befuddled, for others it will create an even more absorbing experience. The Assassin is not for everyone in the same way Under the Skin or the films of Michael Haneke aren’t. It requires something of the viewer that isn’t always easy to give: A complete submission to the material. If understanding what is happening every second is crucial to a viewer’s enjoyment of a film, then it isn’t for them. But if the viewer allows the film to swallow them up for 105 minutes, then it leaves a weird cinematic clarity behind. I’m not sure I understood most of what I saw, but I can’t wait to try again.

TRACES OF THE TRADE

THE SAMMY C PROJECT

ROMAN HOLIDAY

This is a film not to miss. Director Katrina Browne discovered that her ancestors were the largest slave traders in the history of the United States. She and nine fellow descendants retraced the Triangle Trade and shot this essential documentary. Bendite Tom DeWolf is featured in the film and also wrote novels about the slave trade.

Teton Gravity Research and multiple X-Games medalist Sammy Carlson are the subject of this bruising and beautiful ski film. Carlson is not only responsible for showing the world a triple rodeo 1260 was possible, but also proved how big of a crash the human body can take and still get back on a pair of skis.

This is the movie that your grandmother always tells you to watch and gives you the VHS copy of for your birthday. Guess what? She’s right. Audrey Hepburn will make you fall in love in ways you didn’t even know were possible and Gregory Peck will make you faint dead away like a fragile Victorian lady. Put this movie in your eyes.

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic THE 33: This is a dramatic recreation of the Chilean mining collapse where 33 miners became trapped underground for over two months. Starring Antonio Banderas and Lou Diamond Phillips, the movie doesn’t have very good advanced reviews, but they all tend to agree that it is a stirring tale of bravery and sacrifice. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

maker who is primarily known for romantic and moody pictures steps out of their genre to do a martial arts movie, it usually tends to be an outright masterpiece and The Assassin looks to be no different. Directed by Hsiaohsien Hou, the man behind such gorgeous films as Millennium Mambo and Flowers of Shanghai, The Assassin just might be his best picture yet. Tin Pan Theater

BRIDGE OF SPIES: Steven Spielberg’s first film since the masterful Lincoln sees Tom Hanks as an American lawyer recruited by the CIA during the cold war. While Spielberg’s 2000’s output has been stronger than he gets credit for, a re-teaming with Tom Hanks for a spy thriller seems like just the thing to get the critics back on his side. One of the best films of the year so far. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX CREED: Advanced word on this has Creed being hailed as one of the finest films of the year and a beautiful swan song to the character of Rocky Balboa. This film follows the son of Rocky’s greatest opponent, Apollo Creed, as Rocky trains him to become the boxer he was meant to become. While this could have been a sentimental slog, it appears the film might be a true contender. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE GOOD DINOSAUR: While the trailers for this haven’t really been exceptional, Pixar so rarely disappoints that just having their name on it is enough to get most people into the theater. Especially following their all-time classic, Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur is coming at a time where dinosaur love is peaking. The animated film follows the journey of a dinosaur and his companion, a cave-man boy who acts like a dog. The jury is still out with this one. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX GOOSEBUMPS 3D: Advanced word says this is the most fun children’s film since Zathura (which we all know was better than Jumanji). Jack Black plays R.L. Stine, the author of the 200+ series of kid- oriented Goosebumps horror novels. When all of the monsters from his stories escape the pages and jump into the real world, he must team up with some wily kids to capture them all over again. Count me in! Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAYPART 2: While it does feel like this series has been going forever, Mockingjay Part 2 should give the epic series a proper sendoff. As fans of the books know, this is part of the story where everything actually happens (unlike the completely event-free Part 1), so tissues should be held at the ready. This will also be Phillip Seymore Hoffman’s final screen appearance so, even if you don’t watch the movies, it will be worth seeing just to say goodbye. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE NIGHT BEFORE: Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie star in this comedy about childhood friends who might be celebrating their last Christmas together before all of their lives change forever. Fueled with drugs, alcohol, and the search for a legendary party, The Night Before shows us the holiday spirit can only be found at the bottom of a night of true debauchery. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE PEANUTS MOVIE: It really is about time for The Peanuts to make their return, but we’ll see if audiences can accept them in the form of 3D animation instead of hand-drawn. The story sees Snoopy and CB both facing off against their own personal nemeses while living their typical hang-dog existences. Expect parent’s to be just as moved (if not more so) than their kids. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX SECRET IN THEIR EYES: This is a remake of a fantastic Spanish thriller from a few years back, directed by the guy who wrote Captain Phillips and a few other great flicks. This follows a team of investigators whose lives are shattered when one of their children is murdered. If this film is half as good as the original, crime thriller lovers will have a new classic on their hands. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

SPECTRE: Coming after the most financially successful and critically applauded Bond film in history, Spectre has some extremely large shoes to fill. UK reviews for the film were almost universally positive, while US critics have been less than kind so far. The US is right. Dull, dreary, and airless, this is easily the worst Bond film of The Craig era. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

SUFFRAGETTE: This movie is catching some flack for whitewashing the entire suffragette movement after there were quite a few women of color involved. The film has a powerful cast and some excellent filmmakers involved, but the miniscule focus and lack of historical diversity mar what could have been a very important film. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN: As much as we collectively love the story of Frankenstein and the work of James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, the trailers for this one are just plain bad. We already had a lackluster Universal Monster origin story recently with Dracula Untold, but now we’re getting the CG enhanced slog through Dr. Frankenstein and Igor’s mythology. Everything about this should be cool (especially with Radcliffe playing Igor), but seriously, have you seen that trailer? Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

Turning Your Fantasies into Reality 24/7!

ADVICE GODDESS Sweeping Beauty

­—Worried It was so much easier when we only wore fig leaves and you could just rake next to the bed. To be human is to be annoying to some other human. Like by doing that weird clicking thing with your tongue or always leaving the kitchen cabinets ajar (very helpful for any dishes prone to claustrophobia). At first, such behaviors can seem oddly endearing—as does a new boyfriend’s abandoning his socks instead of making that harrowing 62.5-inch trek to the hamper. In time, however, a woman can start having some less-than-constructive ideas. You know, little things, like nailing his socks and underwear to the floor or perhaps lying in wait for him to drop something and then spraying him with a water bottle like a cat on the counter. But as your boyfriend’s letting his socks fall to the bedroom rug like snow, do you think he’s all “Ha, I’ll show her!”—or more “Pillow, here I come!”? The air bag against resenting him is love—not love as a mere feeling but love as an activity, an action you choose to take. Assuming your guy’s basically a good person who loves you, try to behave as if you haven’t forgotten that you love him. Even when you hate him a little. Unfortunately, change is hard. Behaviors become habits, and the personality traits that contribute to them are biologically driven. However, psychologist Art Markman explains that we can structure our environment to help us reshape our behavior. In Smart Change, he advises building a reminder to do a desired behavior into your environment in a way that it can’t be avoided. Upon repeating a new behavior about 20 times, you create the beginnings of a new habit. In your situation, this could even be fun. Each night for a few weeks, leave a sheet of paper with a different message on his pillow, maybe starting with a Magic Markered smiling cartoon hamper saying, “Feed meeee!” (One night, you could even tuck the hamper in under the covers.) Should you fail to amuse him out of his laundry-leaving ways, try to maintain perspective. Consider the idiocy of some people who say they’ll do “anything” for love: move, quit, give up the British throne (sadly, a moot point for

most of us). Their stance only changes once they have love—at which point “anything” involves stopping just short of picking up a small fabric item from the rug.

Minnie Mouth I contributed to the ruin of my marriage with my big mouth, constantly sharing our intimate details with my girlfriends. Well, my wonderful new boyfriend is a pretty private person and has asked that I not share this stuff with my chick circle, and I’ve agreed. However, my friends have gotten used to living vicariously through my drama, and they aren’t liking my new tight-lipped approach. They even seem resentful, like I don’t trust them anymore.

—New Boundaries Him: “I think I have psoriasis on my penis.” You, picking up your phone to text: “Ohh… that’s terr--…can you spell that for me?” Yes, I’ve heard—privacy is supposedly dead (buried in a shallow grave with a dial-up modem somewhere in Jersey). And yes, many people treat it that way. However, though the private details of our lives—our thoughts, emotions, and closed-door doings—aren’t things you can hold (like your “Hooked on Phonics” coffee mug), they are our possessions just like the physical objects we own. In an 1890 Harvard Law Review article, Louis Brandeis and Samuel Warren explain that privacy is a natural human right that comes out of our right to be left alone. Basically, unless you’re a public figure or you’ve done some bad thing that affects the public, the information about your life belongs to you. Gently inform your girl posse that the info cookie jar is now closed. Explain that this has nothing to do with them and everything to do with your boyfriend’s right to pick the privacy settings on his life. And no, the fact that you and he are in situations together doesn’t change that. He’s agreed to share his life with you, not your friends, your Twitter followers, and three cranky federal agents in the “Heating and Cooling” van outside his house.

My new boyfriend is messy. He drops his socks, underwear, and clothing on the floor by the bed. He’s not lazy or entitled, just a spacehead. It’s no big deal for me to pick this stuff up, as I feel like I’m showing him love by caretaking. However, he says his ex said she didn’t mind, either, and then was screaming about his socks eight months later. Is that my future?

you are literally a student enrolled in school, I suspect you will soon be given a final exam. It may not happen in a classroom or require you to write responses to questions. The exam will more likely be administered by life in the course of your daily challenges. The material you’ll be tested on will mostly include the lessons you have been studying since your last birthday. But there will also be at least one section that deals with a subject you’ve been wrestling with since early in your life—and maybe even a riddle from before you were born. Since you have free will, Capricorn, you can refuse to take the exam. But I hope you won’t. The more enthusiastic you are about accepting its challenge, the more likely it is that you’ll do well.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Are you available to benefit from a thunderbolt healing? Would you consider wading into a maelstrom if you knew it was a breakthrough in disguise? Do you have enough faith to harvest an epiphany that begins as an uproar? Weirdly lucky phenomena like these are on tap if you have the courage to ask for overdue transformations. Your blind spots and sore places are being targeted by life’s fierce tenderness. All you have to do is say, “Yes, I’m ready.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): For $70,000 per night, you can rent the entire country of Liechtenstein for your big party. The price includes the right to rename the streets while you’re there. You can also create a temporary currency with a likeness of you on the bills, have a giant rendition of your favorite image carved into the snow on a mountainside, and preside over a festive medieval-style parade. Given your current astrological omens, I suggest you consider the possibility. If that’s too extravagant, I hope you will at least gather your legion of best friends for the Blowout Bash of the Decade. It’s time, in my opinion, to explore the mysteries of vivid and vigorous conviviality.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): “We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange,” wrote novelist Carson McCullers. “As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.” I’m guessing that these days you’re feeling that kind of homesickness, Aries. The people and places that usually comfort you don’t have their customary power. The experiences you typically seek out to strengthen your stability just aren’t having that effect. The proper response, in my opinion, is to go in quest of exotic and experimental stimuli. In ways you may not yet be able to imagine, they can provide the grounding you need. They will steady your nerves and bolster your courage. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The Pekingese is a breed of dog that has been around for over 2,000 years. In ancient China, it was beloved by Buddhist monks and emperors’ families. Here’s the legend of its origin: A tiny marmoset and huge lion fell in love with each other, but the contrast in their sizes made union impossible. Then the gods intervened, using magic to make them the same size. Out of the creatures’ consummated passion, the first Pekingese was born. I think this myth can serve as inspiration for you, Taurus. Amazingly, you may soon find a way to blend and even synergize two elements that are ostensibly quite different. Who knows? You may even get some divine help.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Some people are so attached to wearing a favorite ring on one of their fingers that they never take it off. They love the beauty and endearment it evokes. In rare cases, years go by and their ring finger grows thicker. Blood flow is constricted. Discomfort sets in. And they can’t remove their precious jewelry with the lubrication provided by a little olive oil or soap and water. They need the assistance of a jeweler who uses a small saw and a protective sheath to cut away the ring. I suspect this may be an apt metaphor for a certain situation in your life, Cancerian. Is it? Do you wonder if you should free yourself from a pretty or sentimental constriction that you have outgrown? If so, get help.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted,” wrote Leo author Aldous Huxley. That’s the bad news. The good news is that in the coming weeks you are less likely to take things for granted than you have been in a long time. Happily, it’s not because your familiar pleasures and sources of stability are in jeopardy. Rather, it’s because you have become more deeply connected to the core of your life energy. You have a vivid appreciation of what sustains you. Your assignment: Be alert for the eternal as it wells up out of the mundane. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In their quest to collect nectar, honeybees are attuned to the importance of proper timing. Even if flowering plants are abundant, the quality and quantity of the nectar that’s available vary with the weather, season, and hour of the day. For example, dandelions may offer their peak blessings at 9 a.m., cornflowers in late morning, and clover in mid-afternoon. I urge you to be equally sensitive to the sources where you can obtain nourishment, Virgo. Arrange your schedule so you consistently seek to gather what you need at the right time and place.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Are you willing to dedicate yourself fully to a game whose rules are constantly mutating? Are you resourceful enough to keep playing at a high level even if some of the other players don’t have as much integrity and commitment as you? Do you have confidence in your ability to detect and adjust to ever-shifting alliances? Will the game still engage your interest if you discover that the rewards are different from what you thought they were? If you can answer yes to these questions, by all means jump all the way into the complicated fun! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I suspect your body has been unusually healthy and vigorous lately. Is that true? If so, figure out why. Have you been taking better care of yourself? Have there been lucky accidents or serendipitous innovations on which you’ve been capitalizing? Make these new trends a permanent part of your routine. Now I’ll make a similar observation about your psychological well-being. It also seems to have been extra strong recently. Why? Has your attitude improved in such a way as to generate more positive emotions? Have there been fluky breakthroughs that unleashed unexpected surges of hope and good cheer? Make these new trends a permanent part of your routine.

loged about 900 comets in our solar system. But since then, we have expanded that tally by over 3,000. Most of the recent discoveries have been made not by professional astronomers, but by laypersons, including two 13-year-olds. They have used the Internet to access images from the SOHO satellite placed in orbit by NASA and the European Space Agency. After analyzing the astrological omens, I expect you Sagittarians to enjoy a similar run of amateur success. So trust your rookie instincts. Feed your innocent curiosity. Ride your raw enthusiasm.

cerely hope I’ll never fathom you. You’re mystical, serene, intriguing; you enclose such charm within you. The luster of your presence bewitches me...the whole thing is splendid and voluptuous and absurd.” I hope you will have good reason to whisper sweet things like that in the coming weeks, Gemini. You’re in the Season of Togetherness, which is a favorable time to seek and cultivate interesting kinds of intimacy. If there is no one to whom you can sincerely deliver a memo like Woolf’s, search for such a person.

TAKE ME HOME Big Dreams, Tiny Homes

Gigabit Speed Will BLOW Your Hair Back…

*

By Erin Rook

53

The tiny house movement, while easily labeled a trend, is an example of the truism, “Everything old is new again.” In past generations, homes were smaller. And in much earlier times (and still in more nomadic cultures), it was common for homes to be compact and simply constructed. From Henry David Thoreau’s petite cabin in the woods to the 1950s-era trailers occupied by many Millenials parents and grandparents to the mill cottages that dot Bend's west side, it’s clear that bigger wasn’t always better. And that sentiment is making its way (back) to Bend. The City recently adopted new “cottage codes,” making it easier to develop a plot of small homes around a common green space. And Bend even has its own dedicated tiny house company—Tongue and Groove. Today, many Americans are rebounding from the pre-recession mcmansions into built-for-simplicity tiny houses. And it’s not hard to see why this approach is catching on. While the median home price in Bend hovers around $330,000, Tongue and Groove sells a complete tiny house for just $55,000. For the more adventurous, kits and plans can be purchased from a variety of sources for far less.

But it’s not just about the upfront cost. Advocates of the tiny house movement say those savings carry over. According to Tiny Life, the average cost to self-build a tiny house is just $23,000. It’s not surprising then, that tiny house owners tend to have more money in savings than the average homeowner and are less likely to be tied down by a mortgage. Nearly three quarters of tiny homeowners own their homes outright. They also make more income (which then goes further, thanks to a small or non-existent mortgage payment) and have less credit card debt (thanks in part, no doubt, to having lower household maintenance costs). Of course, it all comes with a tradeoff. The folks at Tiny Life say that the average tiny house is a mere 186 square feet, while the standard home is upward of 2,000 square feet. But, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Living in a house that is less than 400 square feet won’t appeal to everyone. A growing number of people, however, have concluded that more square footage doesn’t lead to more happiness and actually adds complication to your life. Living smaller allows you to focusing on the quality and quantity of your experiences; having time to contribute to your community; and creating space to live a meaningful life. A tiny house isn’t a cure all, but it can have a hugely positive impact on the way that we live.

HOLIDAY ISSUES They deserve so much more this holiday season!

L

ately, Smoke Signals has been somewhat infatuated with the coming cannabis consumer experience revolution. For those who are not regular readers, the “revolution” we are referring to is the birth of a brand new product in the world’s biggest economy during the golden age of consumerism. And it isn’t just one product or even one type of product. First there is what the cool kids are calling “flower” these days, which is just good old-fashioned cannabis bud. Then there are edibles, which includes both foods and drinks. There are also extracts and concentrates, which allow uses such as vaping. Throughout the history of the black market in America, and pretty much everywhere else, cannabis bud was sold in a clear plastic baggie. You were lucky to find a “supplier” who would go the extra mile to use sealable bags. For obvious reasons, there was no label to identify the grower and the strain, much less the THC level or whether pesticides were used on the plant. Contrast this with Leafs by Snoop, which as you may have guessed is Snoop Dogg (nee Lion)’s new line of cannabis products. The Atlantic says Leafs by Snoop “looks like it’d be right at home amongst the artisanal chocolate bars at Whole Foods or the all-natural lotions at Kiehl’s.”

The Source Weekly’s Gift Guides are here to help.

541.383.0800 advertise@bendsource.com bendsource.com

And The Atlantic is correct. The products are beautifully packaged and creatively branded. The edibles line is called “Dogg Treats” and includes such deliciousness as dark chocolate, watermelon drops, strawberry fruit chews, and peanut butter cups. The bud packages include some iconic slogans such as “Smoke Weed Everyday,” and each package includes a signed message from Snoop, which says, “it’s beautiful to see how chronic leafs are a common source of peace, love and soul that connects us all.” For Snoop, these products will also likely be a source of huge amounts of cash. For now, the edibles are only being sold in Colorado, but may soon come to Oregon and Washington as well. Of course, Snoop has his eyes set on the California market

and beyond. Snoop will be competing with some other celebrities for a share of the cannabis market. Willie Nelson now has “Willie’s Reserve,” which is a set of bud products that Willie says is intended to reflect his personal values. Willie calls it the “anti-Walmart model” and says his products will meet quality and sustainability standards. The bud will come from both Willie’s grows, as well as third-party growers. Willie also plans to open his own stores as well. Bob Marley’s family has created “Marley Natural,” which includes a range of products featuring “heirloom Jamaican cannabis strains.” Marley’s products are also exquisitely well-branded, making use of the Jamaican lion and photos of the verdant mountains of central Jamaica. Marley’s daughter Cedella told Caribbean Life News, “My dad would be so happy to see people understanding the healing power of the herb. He’s smiling right now at what’s really happening.” Many Jamaicans are hoping this high-profile investment by the Marley family in the U.S. market will help lend some momentum to the cannabis legalization movement in Jamaica. But these products are not just about their celebrity creators, and the goal of the branding and packaging is not just to create an attractive product. Instead, these businesses are trying to present something that transcends the stoner stereotype. According to Cheryl Shuman, a leading cannabis consultant and a former editor of HighTimes, a key benchmark for these products is whether a woman would want to buy it. Shuman told Fast Company, “Women are the secret to this whole thing.” According to Adweek, women buy 85 percent of all household and consumer products. But it’s not just that women are prolific consumers. The idea is that a cannabis product that would appeal to women is one that would appeal to almost anyone who would buy cannabis.
