n Wednesday, as this issue begins to hit newsstands, members of the Bend Charter Review Committee will present their recommendations to the City Council on changing the city’s charter. The city charter has not been updated in two decades, so this is no small task. Bend is a vastly different city than it was 20 years ago and the structure of the city’s governance was overdue for another look. The committee, which has been meeting since August, voted last month in favor of a number of changes to the charter. The first, and perhaps most important, involves establishing a ward system for the city. The committee voted in favor of creating four distinct wards within the city, allowing voters who live in those geographic areas to vote for Council candidates who will represent their ward. In addition, the committee is recommending the creation of two “at large” positions, for which all voters within Bend can vote. Another big change the committee will recommend to the Council this week is the establishment of a process to elect a directly-elected mayor—a change from the current system by which the mayor is selected from among city councilors, by the city council. As we’ve stated before, this is a move that is long overdue. A directly-elected mayor acts as a social and political leader for our community, and can set a tone for the city. A growing city, as Bend is, deserves to have a visionary at the helm—one who, while he or she won’t,

in this case, wield additional veto or other voting power, will advocate for the soul of Bend in the court of public opinion. Or at least so we hope. That should, of course, come with adequate recompense—but as it stands now, the Charter Review Committee opted to leave the lion’s share of that task to the City Council itself. They’ll recommend to the Council that the City Charter be stripped of language surrounding councilor and mayor pay— thus allowing the Council to decide on that. We encourage the Council to find the money to pay a mayor adequately, as the $200 per-month stipend councilors currently garner isn’t enough to encourage lower-income and even middle-class constituents to sit on council. We have advocated for this in the interest of equity before. The changes the Charter Review Committee has proposed putting in place are positive ones and it deserves a great deal of support and praise for the work it has done. The Charter Review Committee is a volunteer group that had the unenviable task of moving this city’s governance forward in the face of great change. We commend them for their good work. It’s been a long time coming, but the recommendations they’ve made promise to make Bend more equitable, and represented more equally. We hope the City Council adopts their recommendations in full. Now, onto that topic of councilor pay… SW

Ruth Herbert, Never forget that gun violence is at a historical low in our country despite your fear mongering. Never forget the Clackamas Town Center shooting ended when the assailant encountered an armed good citizen with a concealed carry permit. Never forget that our government is not controlled by the NRA (National Rifle Association) but in fact by the healthcare, pharmaceutical and defense industry organizations. Never forget that the British once ruled our country as a colony and most Americans don’t care what they think. Never forget that the legislation currently pending before Congress improving NICS is supported by both the NRA and the NSSF (National Shooting Sports Association). Never forget that “assault rifles” are already heavily restricted fully automatic machine guns. Never forget that all states concealed carry permits and federal law already prohibit the adjudicated mentally ill from possessing all guns. Never forget that domestic violence offenders are never routinely issued concealed carry permits. And most importantly—never forget that responsible gun owners will continue to speak up in the face of your bold faced lies and will always defend our Constitutional rights. — “Permission To Speak Freely?” via

IN RESPONSE TO, “IS BEER FATIGUE A THING?” (11/30) Beer fatigue? Get serious! I started drinking craft beers in 1985 and am still discovering new tasty brews. — Dennis Sargent, via It’s like ice cream. After being recited all 31 flavors you almost are tempted to ask for the vanilla of beers: Coors Lite. — Caroline Tabor-Tschida, via As I read this ‘piece’ on beer fatigue, I feel the sting of tears in my eyes, first in sadness then disappointment. How could anyone get tired of beer anywhere especially in Central Oregon? It’s a bitter pill (or beer?) to swallow. Then I realized that the writer was a previous wine drinker (not that there’s anything wrong with that), and that she thinks it’s “cool” that craft beer is woven through our community. Wine is fine and beer is cool, but this person is really missing the point. Beerlove is not about the Cycle Pub (although a good time I am sure), getting your haircut, mountain biking or running a 5K. It’s loving your first taste of Miller Lite when you are six. It’s drinking Old Milwaukee in college for $3.44 a 12 pack and buying Michelob for special occasions.

It’s remembering when imports like Beck, Heineken, and Lowenbrau were more flavor and more cool. It’s traveling to Scotland and drinking those warm dark brews that kept you warm on dark and rainy days. It’s that “first time” tasting the hops in a pale ale. It’s leaving the beauty of Utah for the beer in Oregon. It’s been a progressive journey, a trip; it’s been an epic tale. All beer drinkers have a similar story tell. Life is hard and our news is rarely good. For some of us, that beer is one of the few pure joys out there. Oh yes, there are other treasures like children, nature and fall apples but even those matters can become complicated. So, if you feel a bit fatigued, burned out, or ready for the next trend, that’s fine. Go find those ciders, distilleries, or kombuchas. There are plenty of us to carry on and sustain the microbrew and beer industry. But I have a request. PLEASE don’t EVER write about beer fatigue again. — Anne Gustin


Anne—Congrats on loving beer since way before the legal drinking age! After 21, it’s surely your right in this free country of ours. When you come in for your gift card to Palate, be sure to ask for a tissue to wipe those tears. As we’ve found, they’re good for dabbing at melted snowflakes too! — Nicole Vulcan, Editor

A climbing group wants to build a guest house adjacent to Smith Rock, a place some claim is already “loved to death.” Meanwhile, a new Master Plan for the park is still in flux. By Caitlin Richmond


hether for hiking, biking, climbing Slipping or just taking photos, there’s no

doubt that Smith Rock State Park is an appealing stop in Central Oregon. Travel Oregon capitalized on that with its “7 Wonders of Oregon” marketing campaign, including the park as one of the wonders of Oregon. That campaign is one of the reasons Al Dertinger, a Terrebonne resident, believes the park has gotten so much busier. “There are days where we can’t get out of the driveway, or we can’t pull the horse trailer out, because of all the cars,” he lamented. Since his move to Terrebonne more than 10 years ago,

Dertinger has seen first-hand the impact of an increasing number of visitors to the park. “We are worried about the impact on the lifestyle out here,” he explained. “We don’t want to lose control of the area.” Dertinger and other residents felt the newly-proposed Smith Rock Master Plan options weren’t taking an aggressive enough approach to dealing with the influx of visitors, so they formed a neighbor group, the Terrebonne Neighborhood Alliance. “We wanted to bring the community together in a unified way, so that everyone [who lives here] has a chance to

voice how they feel,” Dertinger said. Right now, Oregon State Parks is in the process of updating the Master Plan for Smith Rock, last updated in 1991. The process includes a public input period, currently ongoing. OSP is offering three scenarios for improving the park. All three proposed plans would add a smart gate to the entrance, which would update a website when parking is at capacity, and would also add a trail that’s compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, from Northern Point along the rim of the canyon. Parallel parking along Crooked River Drive would be removed. All three plans would include the development of a reservation system for the current first-come first-served campground in the park, and the creation of a system to limit the number of private guides in the park at one time. The first plan option would remove the street parking on Crooked River Drive and replace it with a permanent parking lot near the overflow lot, as well as expanding the campground and parking, and enhancing several trailheads. The second plan option would move the campground closer to 17th Street and convert the current site to a parking lot. The current overflow lot would be turned into a visitors’ center with 30-minute parking, also adding a bridge near the southern edge of the park. The third plan option would add a multi-modal trail from Terrebonne to

the park, and would remove the parking along Wilcox Avenue. It would move the entrance to line up with 17th Street, add a parking lot near the new entrance and move campsite to Northern Point. The current campground would be turned into a day use area with parking. The visitors’ center would also be moved to the overflow lot. Members of TNA don’t think any of the options will have a significant effect on the number of visitors to the park. They’re also taking issue with another proposal nearby. Mazama Ranch TNA is also very concerned about a proposed bed and breakfast and campground that would be run by the Mazamas Foundation, a nonprofit climbing group in Portland. The Mazamas applied for a zoning change for the 2.5-acre lot the Foundation owns near the corner of Crooked River Drive and Smith Rock Loop, hoping to build an eight-person B&B and a campground with a max of 20 campers. The lot is currently zoned as a MUA 10, a multiple-use agricultural zone. TNA members feel the development would be a major disruption. “If the Mazamas are allowed to build a 2.5-acre campground here, what’s to stop a KOA campground from buying 10 acres and building another?” Dertinger wonders. “I was told that I couldn’t build a

11-acre property because of the impact it would have on the area... So I don’t understand why it’s OK for them to build a bed and breakfast and campground." — AL DERTINGER second house on my 11-acre property because of the impact it would have on the area,” Dertinger said. “So I don’t understand why it’s OK for them to build a bed and breakfast and campground. The county isn’t consistent with their permitting.” The campground would be much different than the current camping at Smith Rock, says Adam Baylor, stewardship & advocacy manager for the Mazamas. He describes it more like “glamping.” “It’s more like a controlled lodging experience that happens to be like camping,” he explained. Baylor says he’s talked to several neighbors, saying the Mazamas have tried to find a solution to all of the issues neighbors have brought up. They realized noise was a legitimate concern, so the campsites are designed to direct noise toward the park, rather than toward neighbors. There would also be 8-foot berms to shelter the campsites, as well as additional fences and landscaping.

Because of its nonprofit status, Baylor says the long-term impact of having Mazama Ranch there will be beneficial to the community. “We can keep the costs low, and help push back against the market pressure, where rooms go for $100 or more a night,” he envisioned. “We want to figure out how we can benefit the whole community and the area.” Setting a New Precedent Complicating the issue is the fact that there haven’t been any other requests for changes to MUA-10 zones, so whatever Deschutes County decides to do could potentially set a precedent for future proposals, explains Luis Elenes, a TNA member. The MUA-10 code does allow for campgrounds, but residents are concerned about the proposed setback waiver, which would decrease the setbacks at Mazama Ranch, Elenes said. “What it comes down to is how the

hearing officer decides to interpret the zoning codes,” Elenes said. Elenes stressed that this issue is more than just Smith Rock neighbors not liking the idea of a campground in their neighborhood. “People from Portland have come to


associate Terrebonne with Smith Rock,” Elenes explained. “But for the people who live here, Terrebonne isn’t Smith Rock—it’s just one component. Just because you try to do something good for the park doesn’t mean it’s good for the neighborhood.”  SW * Information obtained from and

Taking the Affordable Care Act’s vital signs after a tumultuous year By Magdalena Bokowa


hen I first meet Jennifer Saxton, she’s brimming with excitement and apologizes for speaking so quickly. “I feel so, so relieved,” she says, “you have no idea.” The 23-year old had just finished enrolling in the Oregon Health Plan—a process which she says took about one and a half hours— and says she feels an immense sense of comfort knowing that from Jan. 1, she’ll be covered. “Between my rent, utilities, car payment and student loan debt, there’s no way I could afford health care. Before this year, I hadn’t been to the doctor, since, well, I don’t even know when.” Saxton suffered a severe kidney infection in July this year that left her hospitalized after she failed to go to the doctor. “I just kept thinking the pain, the fever, would go away and I’d be able to fight it off,” she says. “In hindsight it was stupid, but I just kept telling myself I couldn’t afford the $250 they wanted for new patient fees to see the doctor.”

Saddled with the steep price of a twoday hospital visit, stretching into the thousands, the young Central Oregonian took the advice of a nurse and signed up for OHP. “For some reason, I guess being young, I didn’t think I needed it. Or that I would qualify.” Such misinformation can be common, especially at a time when the

providing information on such a complex and ever-changing subject can do wonders for “enrollment confidence.” Still, Oregonians are being proactive, getting informed and reapplying. There have been 51,882 individual market plan selections in Oregon since Nov. 29, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. That’s on par with states with similar population sizes, such as Arizona, with 51,615 plan selectors and Oklahoma with 43,253. The state with the largest enrollment thus far is Florida with 626,144 (pop. 20 million) and Texas with 344,328 (pop. 27 million). Roy and Jeannine Hawthorne are among those who could be dubbed savvy individual health insurance buyers. They’re typical in that they’ve gone through three different insurance companies with three separate plans. They’ve lost their primary care physician because he was “out of network” and “too costly,” and have seen prices and deductibles rise and benefits shrink. Yet, the family of two—he’s a mechanic and she works part-time in sales— qualifies for a federal tax credit. Their combined monthly premium after such credits comes down to what they say is a “reasonable” $230 a month. They say they’re relieved they’re covered. Shawn Houghton, who lives in Terre-

Trump Administration has slashed the advertising budget for the Affordable Care Act by 90 percent—from $100 million to $10 million. A September. 2017 research study published by The Incidental Economist blog examined healthcare advertising in previous years, showing a correlation between increased advertising and increased enrollment. The study showed that

bonne, is another example. He enrolled a few weeks back over the phone. “It went very smooth,” he said. He too gets a tax credit and this is his third year using it. “My payment went up by 14 dollars,” he says, “I was able to stay with my same insurance company (and) only a few things changed in the plan (but) nothing drastic.” Houghton pays $90 a month after the applied credits, which he says is

“cheap,” considering he has a “chronic illness” and uses his insurance a lot. Broken, Battered But Still Standing With the Affordable Healthcare Act safe from repeal—for now, and the effects of the Republican tax plan yet unclear—the federal marketplace used for health insurance by 39 states is open for business for another year. A quick surge in enrollment around Nov. 1 had quickly dropped off by Thanksgiving weekend, according to stats released by CMMS. As the deadline for open enrollment through the website nears its Dec. 15 deadline, more than 2.7 million customers have signed up for health insurance as of Nov. 29. Of those, 504,181 were new to the system. Experts say this is surprising considering the Trump Administration slashed the enrollment period this year to just 45 days, half of last year’s enrollment period. The Oregon Health Plan reported that, last year, a third of Oregonians enrolled on in the final 13 days of open enrollment, from Dec.18 to Jan 31, 2017. Some policy experts worry Oregonians may not be aware they’re quickly running out of time to find or renew coverage. “I would tell folks to get started on enrollment right away,” says Beckah Moore who specializes in healthcare insurance plans. “We’ve definitely been busy with enrollment despite the lack of ads, and I think it’ll just get more chaotic as Dec. 15 nears.” With many worried about the increase in rates and decrease in available insurance providers, community partners like Taylor, who are well versed in the health insurance options, can be critical advisors for those daunted by the federal marketplace and who don’t receive health insurance from their employers. Some even opting to forgo insurance altogether, citing “it’s too expensive.”

their part, the entire plan is in jeopardy of collapsing.” MEASURE 101: On the Ballot this January The cost of health care in Oregon is again up for debate next year when Measure 101— due for a vote Jan. 23 — goes before voters. Campaigners for the YES vote say the measure would safeguard healthcare for more Oregonians by instilling a 1.5 percent tax on certain health care insurance providers and hospitals. The additional money would funnel into the Oregon Health Plan, the state’s version of Medicaid. Supporters say that if the tax is repealed, up to 350,000 people may lose health care. Citing the potential of some health insurers dropping out or health care providers raising prices, some experts believe taxing health care providers will not make services more affordable. As reported in the Source Weekly Oct. 18, the largest employer in Central Oregon, St. Charles Health System, is facing a $35 million shortfall next year, laying off 30 caregivers to close the gap in the 2018 operating budget. It also offered 72 employees “voluntary separation offers.” Hospital officials said that the impending tax (if not repealed) is one reason for the shortfall—as is the fragmented insurance reimbursement scheme. “A new 0.7 percent real tax is coming off the net revenue, so for us,

that translates to about $3 million annually,” said St. Charles’ President and CEO Joe Sluka. Sluka also blamed the rising trend of patients buying high-deductible plans as a reason for the changing landscape. “On a nationwide scale, the cost of healthcare has gotten to the point where people can’t afford their insurance anymore. What we’re seeing is patients buying high deductible plans—anywhere from $2,000-$10,000—and it’s creating a scenario where people are either not seeking care or can’t pay.” Oregon voters will decide on whether to overturn this new tax just as the state faces a budget shortfall of more than $1 billion. Three Republican state representatives—Julie Parrish, Sal Esquivel and Cedric Hayden—gathered more than 85,000 signatures to force the vote, which normally would take place in the 2018 primary election, but was moved up because it may impact the 2018 state budget. Opponents of the tax say it will put pressure on lawmakers to “get more creative” and find other ways to cut costs for low-income Oregonians. In a recent health care forum hosted by the Bend Chamber, a representative of PacificSource, a nonprofit insurance provider, acknowledged the strain on state and federal funding. “We have a history of building a nation on the premise of really clearly delineating what the

government shouldn’t be able to do,” said Lindsey Hopper, vice president of Medicaid Programs at PacificSource. “We have a few rights that are expressed and the rest of history is pretty much about protecting ourselves from the federal government which we feared is too strong. That is a really weird platform to launch a big shift. And some of this is just really ugly growing pains.” Sluka noted that Central Oregon seemed to be in a unique position to navigate tough funding. “I’ve worked in health care for 20 years and what we are doing in Central Oregon is really unique. It is having everyone at the table, and sitting with dental health, mental health, education now, physical health, the county commissioners... and there’s a discussion going on, not only about health care but about the care we deliver. I think we’re pioneering here, and I couldn’t agree more, I think the allocation and investment impact health overall.” Local physician and President of High Lakes Healthcare, Dr. Stephen Mann, notes that lowering the cost of care across the board so that patients will seek preventative and primary care is critical to ensure the system next year will still be operational. “There has got to be work on lowering the cost of care across the board, in order to take care of everybody,” Mann said. Though on what scale remains to be seen. SW

In an effort to combat vague information, the Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace released financial aid figures, stating that on average, an Oregonian in 2017 received $346 per month in financial aid, if they bought the plan through the federal marketplace. These breaks can be available to those who make as much as $48,240 per year (single family), $64,960 (2 persons) or up to $98,400 per year for four individuals. In addition, adults who “make up 138 percent of the Federal Poverty Level” qualify for OHP, according to the Oregon Health Authority. That means those who make approximately $16,100 per year (one person) or $32,900 per year for a family of four may qualify for free healthcare. Liz Hagan, the associate director of policy at the National Association of Health Assisters, says she was “encouraged by what we’ve seen thus far,” in regard to enrollment. “Thankfully, people sharing the facts about coverage and open enrollment have cut through the noise and rhetoric by the Trump administration.” But as Moore notes from her past experience, the litmus test isn’t the first few weeks of enrollment, but the last few days. She reminds younger, healthy Oregonians who may think they don’t need coverage, such as the case with Saxton, to sign up. “They balance out the system, and without them playing

of a Troubadour SOUND Tales Singer-songwriter John Craigie is a storyteller, in both musical and spoken form

separation.” That summer night, Craigie showed up and we watched the show. Then we found ourselves heading up to McMenamins’ secret bar, laughing at Craigie’s tales—a preamble to the humorous storytelling we’d witness the next night. Soon Jack Johnson and his peeps showed up too, and we laughed and drank whiskey into the night. The next evening, at Craigie’s invitation, my friend and I hit the packed Les Schwab show—an exciting time for the Portland-based musician, who had met Johnson in Hawaii during a January tour in support of his new album, “No Rain, No Rose.” The two hit it off, and the star of “Banana Pancakes” fame (and lots of other radio hits, who are we kidding?!) invited Craigie to join him on part of his summer tour, including dates at Les Schwab and The Gorge Amphitheatre. Though not at all a knock on the singer-songwriter’s talent, to say this was a serious upgrade in crowd size for Craigie is an understatement. For my part, maybe ours is just a story of a couple of lucky broads who happened to meet some people of notoriety. Or maybe it’s the kind of thing that actually makes music and shows and entertainment in general really special. The magic, heavily sprinkled. Coincidentally, when I asked Craigie about what makes music—and music writing—special, his response went along with that sentiment. “I think nowadays people are really looking for something relatable,” Craigie said. “I think maybe in the ‘60s and ‘70s people were a lot more into hero worship, people were more inclined to do like a Beatles or an Elvis scream-until-they-faint thing, but I feel like mostly nowadays people are over that. “The people I meet, everybody’s got a

ome of you may remember John Craigie as the chatty troubadour who told stories between songs when he opened for Jack Johnson at the Les Schwab Amphitheater in July. The consummate storyteller, Craigie shares just as much via the spoken word as he does in song—and he has no shortage of stuff to tell. That’s one way to remember him. Me, I remember him for what came before that show. It was a ho-hum summer night in downtown Bend, the night before his Les Schwab appearance. I was meeting a friend from out of town who I hadn’t seen in a long time—the kind of friend who, without exactly trying, seems to sprinkle magic over your life every time you meet. This time though, the magic this friend was sprinkling seemed to be coming out with the top taken off the salt shaker. I met said friend at McMenamins Old St. Francis School, where she was hitting a free show and meeting up with her friend, “John.” No one else seems to call Craigie that, but the two were longtime friends. Even Craigie himself is known to refer to himself in the third person— though he says it’s not just for laughs. “It’s a way of detaching yourself, and giving yourself some individuality, amongst the artist form, so I can be like ‘the Craigie show was this’ and ‘Craigie likes it like this.’” Craigie says. “It’s funny… but it’s also sort of a way to give yourself some difference or some

thing they’re doing. Everybody’s got like a little project of their own nowadays, which is really cool, whether it’s a band or whether they’ve got a blog, or photos, everyone kind of knows they can do something with their life other than just the mundane,” Craigie said. These days, Craigie says the shows he’s playing tend to be slightly larger, slightly more packed, following his

tour with Johnson—not a surprise when you’re billed with a megastar who sells out the biggest of venues. At Craigie’s show this weekend at Volcanic, expect plenty of storytelling in between the tunes that might remind you of John Prine, or even Bob Dylan… with a lot of laughs thrown in. And with any luck, maybe you’ll get a memorable story out of that show, too. SW

Get Down

The California Honeydrops take their infectious, high-energy sound on the road ahead of a new album By Anne Pick


Keither Berson

The California Honeydrops bring a Bay Area R&B-meets-Delta Blues sound to the Domino Room 12/7.


t’s all about having a good mindset and a good energy when you get on stage,” says Ben Malament, drummer for The California Honeydrops, a band with a reputation for involving the crowd in their performances and invoking all-night dance parties. Speaking with Malament, it’s clear he and the band like to have a good time and meld with the crowd during each set. “We love when it goes over well,” Malament says. “It’s just cool to take a risk and at the end of the night or during the show seeing people having a good time and giving it back.” The California Honeydrops blend blues and R&B with unconventional instruments such as washboards, jugs and a homemade gutbucket bass—plus bluesy vocals. “We try to take care of our voices and our bodies as much as we can on the road because it is a lot of energy and we play long shows. The way we really prepare is we think about the songs we play over and over again and we don’t play those. We have fan favorites and we definitely take those into account, as well. We just don’t necessary plan to put them in any particular places. We play to the room.” The California Honeydrops came together in 2007, starting their musical journey busking in Oakland subway stations. “We started playing on the street, when you have to get people involved to make it work,” Malament says. “No matter how electric we’ve gone or how many people we’re in front of, we take that same approach. You’ve got to hustle for your burrito money.”

Malament and lead vocalist Lech Wierzynski continue to lead the band— and the dance party. The California Honeydrops bring an infectious high energy to their live performances. With a variety of influences from Bay Area R&B to Delta blues, there’s something for everyone at a Honeydrops show. “It’s not just us playing songs at people. We can feel the energy and the joy of the crowd. They tell us what to do a lot of the time. It makes every night different and special.” Up next for The California Honeydrops: recording a new double album in the spring. “Call it Home Volume 1 and 2” takes inspiration from different areas and incorporates the ever-evolving Honeydrops sound. Malament believes it continues the band’s growth while mixing washboards with R&B ballads, and at times, a full orchestra section. Malament says “Call it Home Volume 1 and 2” is their best record to date. “If you were able to perform it well and it sounds good right away coming out of the speakers, it’s pretty inspiring. We try to continue our growth of playing music that we like with our original songs. Straight up R&B shuffles, everything live in the same room, it just sounds awesome.” SW The California Honeydrops with The Super Saturated Sugar Strings Thurs., Dec. 7. 9pm Domino Room 51 NW Greenwood Ave., Bend $15/adv. at 21+

A P.C. Christmas

A twisted take on some holiday classics brings punny fun By Elizabeth Warnimont

With so many classic holiday tales to choose from, one might wonder how the playwright decided on these particular gems. Sandy Klein

Actor Katey James

“Rudy Rudy Rudolph,” directed by the playwright, re-imagines the budding stag’s unique facial feature as an indicator of his coming of age. Rudy is self-conscious about his nose, which is already red but not yet “aglow.” He has no clue, though, as to why he feels so different from the other reindeer, until the day he kisses his first fawn—and then his first young buck. Once he figures it all out, his nose begins to glow, and we can imagine the life of awareness and purpose that lies ahead for him. “Rudy has to go through some conflict in order to get the nose to glow,” Clark explains. “Basically, he has to come out of the closet in kind of an oppressive reindeer society.” In “Less than Frosty,” directed by Scott Schultz, the jolly old snowman is melting too soon, presumably due to an unseasonably warm December. His adoptive family is concerned that he may not make it to Christmas day. “He’s exhibiting some of the symptoms of dementia. That’s kind of the theme of this one, accepting people from an older time who might not be politically correct,” the playwright explains. “It was inspired by one of my grandmas who came from Tennessee in the 1920s. Even though it might make us cringe, that was normal for a lot of older people to talk like that.” As Frosty’s deterioration progresses, he must decide whether or not to check himself into the Cold Folks Home, where he’s promised that his frigid life could be extended at least until Christmas. The family soon discovers, though, that promises can be as unreliable as the weather. “Halfway Home Alone” picks up the story from the "Home Alone" movies, as would-be home invaders Harry and Marv get out of prison 15 years later. Meanwhile Kevin, the boy hero who as a child held the bungling burglars at bay while his parents were away, has gotten himself hired as a janitor at the halfway house where Harry and Marv are paroled, “just so he can pull some more pranks on them,” says Clark. The costumes, the antics, and the expressions on the players’ faces will recall the tale for anyone who

ou’ve heard or seen the classic holiday tales such as "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Frosty the Snowman," "Home Alone" and "A Christmas Story." Now, 2nd Street Theater is bringing a new take on those stories, aiming to poke fun at political correctness. Clinton K. Clark’s “A P.C. Christmas,” opening Dec. 8, involves back-stories offering good humor, striking visuals and a boatload of clever puns. In “The Christmas Story: 20 Years Later,” directed by Karen Sipes, it’s the 1960s and little Ralphie is back from doing a stint in Vietnam. “In the movie, the leg lamp is very important. Ralphie’s dad gets the lamp, which everyone hates, but he thinks it’s wonderful,” playwright Clark recalls. “In the play, Ralphie has a violent flashback and winds up accidentally breaking the lamp.” Knowing how much the artifact means to his dad, and how difficult it would be to find another one just like it, Ralphie realizes he has no other choice but to enlist the aid of childhood bully Scott Fergus, now a sleazy antiquities dealer. A deal is eventually struck – but who will end up with the better end of it?

Vixen (Catherine Christie) is not at all sure about her feelings for Rudy (Matthew Vigil) in “Rudy Rudy Rudolph."

has seen the "Home Alone" movies, though the play promises to entertain regardless of prior experience. With so many classic holiday tales to choose from, one might wonder how the playwright decided on these particular gems. “I had to whittle it down to these four,” Clark told the Source Weekly. “I almost did one for the Grinch, but I felt these were the best.”  SW A P.C.

aula Bullwinkel paints a new type of fairy tale—one that inspires you to make up your stories, choose your own heroes and imagine your own adventures. Filled with bunnies and giraffes and foxes and ravens, her fantastical creations don’t shy away from the dark side of storytelling, and yet still leave viewers with a feeling of intrigue and whimsy. Bullwinkel’s most recent project, called Cosmic Ceramics, is a collaboration with fellow Central Oregon Community College Art Professor Bill Cravis. He created five 18-inch tall bottles onto which Bullwinkel painted her interpretation of five of the seven deadly sins and seven virtues. Each bottle is painted with a sin and a virtue wrapped together. There is wrath with kindness, gluttony with temperance, greed with charity and humility with pride—which features her first depiction of the current president. This was a new medium for Bullwinkel, and one she says she came to enjoy. “Paintings are not as tangible, but the ceramics are. It is a new way to connect with people,” Bullwinkel shares. She hopes to create more in the future and even move into large platters. Bullwinkel recently returned from a month-long residency with the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in northern California, where she was immersed in a new work of large 48-inch by 64-inch paintings—the largest she’s ever painted. She built the canvases prior to leaving and shipped them to the ranch. Her studio was so large, she could simultaneously work on multiple pieces at once, a treat for Bullwinkel. While the residency provided space and food, Bullwinkel also received a grant from the Ford Family Foundation to help with travel expenses. “It felt good to be recognized. That what you do is important, “ says Bullwinkel. When the final large paintings are finished, she’ll find a place for them to be displayed.  SW Available for purchase at: Bright Place Gallery 909 SE Armour Rd., Bend

For $8, getting what felt like two drinks was pretty awesome. tortilla chip into the red tomato salsa, featuring chunks of fresh diced onion that were a bit overpowering and heavy cumin. The salsa was average, something you could easily get from the grocery store. It lacked the salty, tangy heat of a really good hot sauce. We started with an appetizer of

guacamole the mucho tropical infused tequila margarita, arriving with both a stemmed glass with a chile salt-rim and a lime wedge garnish and a pint glass with the overflow. For $8, getting what felt like two drinks was pretty awesome. The margarita was so easy to drink, with the pineapple soaked tequila really smoothing the liquor out. I’d come back for the margarita alone but next time I would hit happy hour. For $6, you get a house margarita and three street tacos. That’s worth a drive to Redmond, right? My partner, meanwhile, wanted a tequila flight, available in the four standard tequila categories: blanco, reposado, añejo or reserva. He went with the añejo: tequila aged in small oak barrels for a minimum of one but less than three years. For the guacamole, we watched our server scoop out a ripe avocado and mash it in a bowl, adding chile, tomatoes, onions, cilantro and mango. She squeezed fresh lime, poured some salt and mixed it all together. The guacamole was zesty, subtly sweet and had a great crunch from the onions. We scraped the bowl with our chips to get every last, scrumptious bite. For dinner I ordered the regular

combo with a beef chimichanga and a pork enchilada. My partner order the fish tacos, which arrived first. The fish was breaded, fried and topped with red cabbage and a lemon reduction. On the side was an escabeche of pickled cabbage and carrots that also accompanied the rice and beans. The fish tacos were light and the cabbage provided some additional texture. The rice and beans were surprising standouts, especially combined with the escabeche. After my partner tried his dish he said, “I would have never thought it would be this good here.” I have to agree with him. I was surprised at the deliciousness of the food. By the time our dinner was served the restaurant was filling up. I think it gets more crowded the later it gets; they are open late. The food at Mi Cantina Grill is approachable and the flavors subtle. You aren’t going to be punched in the face with spice here but you will definitely get a filling, yummy meal. And hit that happy hour!  SW Mi Cantina Grill

If you are headed to OSU-Cascades or Mt. Bachelor, there’s a new spot to grab coffee and some tasty bites. Companion Coffee is tucked behind Cascade Lakes Brewing. The coffee shop is an expansion of Bad Wolf Bakery & Bistro, a family-run bakery downtown. The new space is white and bright with a beverage menu including coffee, chai, tea and kombucha. The food counter has a pastry case with sweet treats and you can order Bad Wolf Bakery bites, including their popular breakfast sandwiches. They also serve a range of toasts, bagels with cream cheese and yogurt parfaits. Plus, if you’re a Dr. Who fan you’ll enjoy their subtle nod to the famous British sci-fi drama.

urn here,” I said as we approached Glacier Avenue in Redmond, progressing down a dark street with no signs of activity. “Are you sure this is right?” my partner asked. Google maps said we were where we should be. At the end of the street it looked like there were no open businesses, but around the corner I saw some lights. We pulled into the empty parking lot, the Mi Cantina Grill and neon beer signs glowing in the windows. Peeking through the windows, we didn’t see a single person inside. It was a bit early, around five on a Saturday evening. We were hungry after a late afternoon run at Smith Rock. I wasn’t expecting much. The woman behind the bar looked small compared to the size of the room. You can find a restaurant that looks like this in every small town in the USA. The interior was basic but clean, with 12 or so standard four-top tables. The space could fit double or triple that number. Behind the bar was a decent selection of tequila and the counter was lined with containers of tequila fruit infusions. Thus far, nothing out of the ordinary. Opposite the real bar was another that could seat 30 or more. Tucked in the back of the restaurant was a stage set with musical instruments, microphones and lots of speakers. In the evening Mi Cantina Grill brings in bands or offers karaoke. I was ravenous after our run so I didn’t wait to dig in to the chips and salsa brought to our table. I dunked a

It could be a celebration of our whole community, which is pretty cool.” Similar efforts from other small towns across Oregon have resulted in breweries opening up in places such as Burns, Pendleton and John Day. Will Madras be next? Judging by the outsized presence of beer tourism in Central Oregon, it seems likely.  SW

adras, a little under an hour from Bend, is a prospering town. Its population has grown to around 6,700 people, it’s cheap to live in, it’s conveniently nearby Indian Head Casino, and it hosted nearly 100,000 visitors during the solar eclipse in August. Despite that, to many Bendites, it’s known simply as some place to grab gas and a fast-food lunch along Hwy. 97 on their way to or from Portland. The local government would like to change that. One major part of that plan: Getting a brewery. This week, Madras launched a website ( and released information on the incentive and assistance package it’s offering to potential brewers who wish to open in the city’s urban renewal district, located downtown along the highway. The pitch is being led by Mayor Royce Embanks and the Madras Redevelopment Commission. “When hundreds of community members provided input on our City’s Urban Renewal Action Plan and said that recruiting a brewery is a top priority, it was clear—Madras is ready for a brewery or brew pub to call its own,” Embanks said. “The vision is for a vibrant community gathering place and an inviting destination for friends, family and tourists.” Madras is home to New Basin Distilling, making vodka and light whiskey since early 2016, but the area is still bereft of local beer—the “Last Best Place in Oregon without a Brewery (Yet!),” as the website puts it. Along those lines, the city is offering a wealth of assistance and incentives to potential business owners, including site development and renovation costs, expedited permitting, and technical assistance with

Frances McDormand solidifies her status as a national treasure.


am not what you would call an unbiased observer when it comes to the work of Martin McDonagh. He’s responsible for my favorite play ever written, “The Pillowman,” which I’ve driven several hours to see performed live and also directed locally. I’ve seen his show “A Behanding in Spokane,” on Broadway during its original run, which featured Anthony Mackie, Zoe Kazan, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken. The two movies he’s written and directed, “In Bruges” and “Seven Psychopaths,” are all-time favorites of mine.

"Three Billboards" won't please everyone—as the grumbling audience after the screening I attended proved—but movies shouldn't. All of this is to say, I’m like the Fox News of critics when it comes to “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” I might proclaim to be fair and balanced, but we all know fake news when we hear it. McDonagh’s balance of pitch black comedy, gallows humor, heartbreak, violence and empathy transmits right to my wavelength, causing me laughter and tears sometimes in the context of the same scene. “Three Billboards” follows Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand), a middle-aged single mother (divorced from the man who abused her) who’s still dealing with rage and guilt over the rape and murder of her teenage daughter seven months earlier. She’s disgusted with the local police department, which hasn’t made a single arrest or found any clues, so she rents three billboards on a dead road no one uses to call out the beloved local sheriff, Bill Willoughby (Woody Harrelson). Hijinks ensue. The film is impossible to categorize, as it’s not interested in tonally matching anything we’ve ever seen before. “Three Billboards” is a primal scream against being forgotten, a tender and humanist look at how we exist in society and a revenge thriller that never stops building in intensity. The film dares audiences

to judge it as either deeply cynical or refreshingly optimistic, but it’s both, neither and some other unquantifiable emotion that only McDonagh has discovered. McDormand’s performance is breathtaking as she dances between an acidic toughness and a numbing vulnerability that makes Mildred Hayes one of the most fully realized characters of the decade. This, combined with Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell turning in career-best work, makes “Three Billboards” a transcendent film experience and one of the best films of the year. The film isn’t perfect though, since several characters exist only as easy Small Town America jokes that don’t further the story, and there are a few narrative dead ends that could have been explored further. Still, “Three Billboards” is another sign that motion pictures backed by strong, independent voices aren’t dead yet. This has been the strongest year for those idiosyncratic voices since 2007, when we received all-time masterpieces including “There Will Be Blood,” “No Country for Old Men,” “Zodiac” and “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” all within a few short months of each other. “Three Billboards” won’t please everyone (as the grumbling audience after the screening I attended proved), but movies shouldn’t. Pop culture that exists to appeal to every demographic is boring and too broad to bring anything really interesting to the table. Some pieces of culture, whether they’re movies, television or music, feel like they were invented just for us, individually, and the rest of the world be damned. McDonagh’s voice sounds like my conscious, begging me to be a better person even as it laughs at me when I’m not. Maybe someday I’ll listen.  SW

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

COCO: Leave it to Pixar to make a cute and heartwarming animated film about death and remembrance. “Coco” follows a young Mexican boy who travels to the Land of the Dead in order to follow his dreams to be a musician. With groundbreaking animation and hauntingly beautiful music, “Coco” is the finest Pixar film in years. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema DADDY'S HOME 2: It's sadly ironic that, in a time in which so many male celebrities are getting called out on their gruesome and predatory behavior, we've somehow still got Mel Gibson in the middle of his comeback tour. He doesn't deserve it. I guess Will Ferrell is funny...does that make it better? Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX JANE: A documentary about Jane Goodall from

NatGeo that focuses on her field work played over an absorbing score by Philip Glass. As many nature documentaries as there have been, you've definitely never seen anything like this before. Tin Pan Theater

JUSTICE LEAGUE: A movie featuring Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Batman, Superman, The Flash and Cyborg shouldn't be so boring, but this new comic book movie feels like one missed opportunity after another. Featuring a terrible villain, silly dialogue and bad computer effects, “Justice League” is really only fun when showing the heroes actually using teamwork. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

LADY BIRD: Currently rocking a perfect score


on Rotten Tomatoes, “Lady Bird” is a lovely and honest coming-of-age story about a Catholic school senior who is desperately grasping for a future she might not reach. The film is an instant classic that's sure to be on many best of 2017 lists across the country. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

LOVING VINCENT: The first fully painted animated film in history sees the filmmakers take on a van Gogh biopic with nearly 65,000 hand-painted frames. Crafted with love, precision and grace, “Loving Vincent” will be a gift to fans of the master across the world. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS:

Nancy P’s

A biopic about Charles Dickens (played by Dan Stevens) during the time he created “A Christmas Carol.” With Stevens as Dickens and Christopher Plummer as Ebenezer Scrooge, the film is guaranteed to have all sorts of scenery chewing in between moments of heartwarming Christmas shenanigans. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX


Legendary detective Hercule Poirot has to solve a murder on a speeding train even though everyone on board is pretty sketchy. This is an old-fashioned and fun whodunnit that basically anyone can

enjoy as long as they like watching actors at the top of their game creating characters at their rock bottom. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

NOVITIATE: Featuring Melissa Leo, one of

America's most underrated actresses, and Margaret Qualley, who is one or two movies away from being the next ScarJo, “Novitiate” follows a teenager as she trains to become a nun. The film is set during the turbulent 1960s, while the Roman Catholic Church was undergoing the changes it would carry into the future. Tin Pan Theater

ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ.: Denzel Wash-

ington plays a lawyer who finds himself in a situation where he can either do something immoral and make a ton of cash, or follow the law and continue struggling his way through life. Since it's from the director of “Nightcrawler,” we can probably guess what he chooses. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE STAR: Who doesn't love anthropomor-

phized animals hanging around the birth of Christ?? “The Star” follows a brave little donkey and his friends Camel, Lady Horse, Sheep Guy, Other Camel and Dogma as they hang around for the first Christmas. A cross between “The Secret Life of Pets” and Sunday School. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE SQUARE: At well over two hours long, “The Square” can sometimes feel like a punishing exercise in cinema, but there's nothing quite like it out there. A modern art gallery director questions morality, humanity and social constructs as his normally cushy life starts falling apart around him. Expect to have some very detailed discussions with friends and loved ones once the closing credits roll. Tin Pan Theater THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI: Writer/Director Martin

McDonagh, who is responsible for the modern classics “Seven Psychopaths” and “In Bruges,” brings us another darkly hilarious look at human nature. With awards-worthy performances by Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell, “Three Billboards” is a wildly original piece of art that should not be missed. See full review on p41.

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

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

WONDER: The little movie that could! This follows a facially disfigured little boy entering a public school for the first time, in fifth grade. The film looks heartwarming in all the right ways and reviews say that it actually stays on the right side of schmaltz and ends up being a miraculous little movie.

"Dirty John," "Game of Thrones" and addictive German TV By Jared Rasic 43

because of all the exciting movies coming out, but it’s

VOLUME 21  ISSUE 49  /  December 7, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Welcome back, everyone! We took a few weeks off Neo Yokio

time to dive back in to all things bingeable.



My money's on the "Punisher," but animated, blue-haired Canadians have been known to surprise us.

In Pod We Trust:


It’s been a while since we’ve looked at some of the brand spanking new podcasts, and it’s downright intimidating how many there are to choose from. Al Jazeera has a new podcast network called Jetty and its debut show is simply fascinating. Hosted by Carvell Wallace, “Closer Than They Appear” isn’t just a new interview podcast, though it uses that format to take on a wide range of topics Wallace feels are plaguing America. The premiere episode sees Carvell interviewing Mahershala Ali from last year’s “Moonlight,” and it’s a perfect place to start. If diving into another open-ended series just seems like too much, there’s also the six-episode true-crime series, “Dirty John,” a chilling story about a sociopath who ruins the life of a doomed and lonely woman. For fans of “Serial” and “Making a Murderer,” “Dirty John” is chilling in all the ways only a truly great podcast can achieve.

I don’t know about you, but I’m completely obsessed with the new Netflix series “Dark,” a mesmerizing hybrid of “Stranger Things,” “Top of the Lake” and “Hemlock Grove.” I haven’t finished all 10 episodes yet, but “Dark” is such a weird and unpredictable show that it sticks in my brain long after each episode has ended. It’s initially about the disappearance of some young boys in a small German town (the show is subtitled, but you can choose to watch it dubbed...philistine), but it eventually expands into an addictive sci-fi horror tale filled with creepy caves, a deadly forest and time travel. Trust me on this one. Sure, there are other fun things to binge on Netflix, such as “Punisher” or Jaden Smith’s hilariously terrible anime series, “Neo Yokio,” but “Dark” is definitely where it’s at. Netflix

DVD and BLU:

If there’s anything you think I should take a closer look at in the realm of Podcasts, Netflix or pop culture in general, shoot me a line at

The rest of December is downright packed with interesting releases, so hopefully the snow will bury us soon and we have an excuse to stuff our faces with pop culture. The underrated “Detroit” finally sees release on Dec. 12, and while it’s a movie that’s certainly no fun to watch, it still tells an important story that, as Americans, we shouldn’t let ourselves forget. Season seven of “Game of Thrones” is also released on Dec. 12, and since we have at least another year to wait for the final season, we might as well get used to picking apart everything we’ve already seen. “Thrones” definitely sped up the storytelling last season, so season seven will definitely be a ton of fun to rewatch. I mean, there was a massive battle or hugely dramatic stand-off in every. single. episode. I miss the show already and it’s not even over yet.

Do you have a paranoid conspiracy wall? No? Probably for the better.

for Powder OUTSIDE Stoked Dirksen Derby is back for its 10th run By Keely Damara


Josh Dirksen

45 VOLUME 21  ISSUE 49  /  December 7, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

y the time they were in high school, Josh Dirksen and Jason McAlister were making the trek to Bend for fresh powder whenever they had the chance. “Every day off we were driving to Mt. Bachelor and riding the mountain,” said Jason McAlister. “Sleeping in our car for the weekend—and then back to Eugene for high school.” Determined to become professional snowboarders, they moved to Bend together after graduating high school in 1994. They spent winters up at Mt. Bachelor and summers working at the High Cascade Snowboard Camp at Mt. Hood. They both ended up snowboarding professionally, sponsored by Salomon. McAlister was a pro snowboarder for Salomon for 10 years and Dirksen is still competing. In 2007, Tyler Eklund, a young up-and-coming snowboarder in Bend, suffered a spinal cord injury after crashing his board at the U.S. Snowboard and Freeski Association Nationals in Utah. At 14, he was paralyzed from the neck down and didn’t have health insurance to shoulder the costs of treatment. While Dirksen didn’t know Eklund personally at the time, he wanted to help the family pay his medical bills— and that’s how the Dirksen Derby was born. The three-day event, happening Dec. 15 to 17 this year, includes a race down a banked slalom course on Mt. Bachelor for snowboarders, sit-skiers and splitboarders. Over the years the event has expanded to include a film festival and art auction, raising approximately $170,000 since 2007 for Eklund’s medical bills and other causes. This year, in addition to Eklund, proceeds will benefit Oregon Adaptive Sports, the climate advocacy group Protect Our Winters and the Central Oregon Avalanche Association. “Raising money has always been a part of it, but also raising good times for him too and good memories,” Dirksen said. “Everyone comes into town so happy and I think that’s a very special part for him.” Dirksen took a break from organizing the derby last year, instead holding

a smaller event up at Hoodoo—but now it’s back and bigger than ever. This year, the kick-off party is at Tower Theatre on Friday., Dec. 15 and includes a film festival with a film and photo competition. Mike Beaulieu joined forces with Dirksen in the third year of the derby, organizing the official kick-off party for the event. Before that, he was running a separate fundraiser for Eklund following his accident in 2007. Beaulieu’s son, Logan Beaulieu, was competing in Utah along with Eklund when he crashed his snowboard. “So it kind of hit close to home when Tyler got hurt,” Beaulieu said. While the Beaulieu family isn’t organizing the official kick-off part at the Tower Theatre this year, they are hosting a dinner at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Central Oregon on Saturday., Dec. 16. A ticket includes dinner, a glass of kombucha and a raffle ticket, and there will be Dirksen Derby beanies available for purchase. Beaulieu’s band Shady GroOove will perform and there will be an art auction

that uses broken snowboards as the canvas, with proceeds benefiting Eklund and Oregon Adaptive Sports. “It’s definitely a snowboarder crowd, but it’s open for anybody,” said Beaulieu. Dirksen expects there to be a large turnout for all of the events, but they’ve limited the number of derby competitors this year to a mere 500. In 2015, registration filled up in three days, with 607 riders competing in the race. “Yeah, that’s why I took a year off,” Dirksen said. “We had 4 feet of pow at the last one over the three days. It’s like everything about it was crazy.” The race includes divisions for all ages, ranging from the “Mini-Shred” division for ages zero to eight years old to the “Older and Wiser” division for 50 and older. The course doesn’t incorporate hand rails or half pipes like other pro snowboarding events, McAlister says, making it an accessible course for kids who can directly compare their race times to the pros. “It’s fun for everybody. It’s fun for

the pro, it’s fun for the kid that can barely get down it and its' fun for the mom who likes to snowboard as well,” McAlister said. “It’s something that everybody can go down at their own pace and have fun doing.”  SW Dirksen Derby 10

Coffee Beans and Birds The dark side of your morning cup By Jim Anderson

“Are you going to do the story on coffee and songbirds?” he asked me one day in the local Bi-Mart. It seems the age-old problem has popped up again—the one involving landowners’ efforts to make an income off their holdings while still looking out for the welfare of this-or-that species of wildlife that live on said land.

For me, the greatest collision of land ownership and the welfare of nature is the destruction of the rainforest to create a business to ostensibly help people improve their lives. The destruction of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil, which began in 1941, has, in my opinion, had a major negative impact on the world’s climate. Seems some coffee growers are doing the same thing to North American birds who spend their winters in Central and South America.

Doug Baell

It comes down to this: coffee farms can provide good habitat for birds— including wintering migrants from North America as well as birds that live year-round in the tropics. Those farms can also destroy or damage bird habitat. It’s largely a matter of how the coffee is grown. Bird conservation groups are now reminding us that many of the songbirds of the U.S., such as warblers, tanagers, orioles and grosbeaks, head south to Central and South America in the winter, where many coffee farms are located. By purchasing “Bird Friendly” coffees, consumers can support healthy bird habitat.

Kris Kristovich

Like it or not, both species of these warblers, the Nashville warbler and the Yellow warbler can be negatively impacted by modern coffee growing.

People have been drinking coffee in the U.S. long before there was a U.S. The Dutch introduced coffee to the New World in the 1700s. In those far gone days it was a a forest-floor crop grown under a dense overhead forest canopy. The growers were happy with the profit base and the birds were happy with the way the farmers were doing business. However, things are not that way today. Machines and chemicals are now being used to grow coffee out in bright sunlight, which is said to be generating a greater profit, and in today’s world, “profit” drives everything. Some coffee farms in operation today still use the traditional method of growing coffee in the shade, where artificial fertilizers aren’t necessary. Decaying leaf litter recycles nutrients to feed the coffee plants. Pesticides aren’t needed either, because more birds are around to eat insect pests, and the volume of coffee grown, and the subsequent profit satisfies the investors and farmers. Tasters have said shade-grown coffee yields a higher-quality brew that tastes richer. This is partly because forest coffee isn’t machine harvested, but picked by hand, allowing trained pickers to choose only the ripe coffee berries/beans. But it’s also more

expensive to raise and harvest, therefore not being as “profitable.” Sure, modern coffee growing has introduced sun-tolerant varieties of coffee that can be grown in the open and tend to have higher yields than shade-grown coffee. According to agricultural and environmental scientists, this technique is much harder on the environment, resulting in forests being cut down, with pesticides and fertilizers employed to stimulate higher yields—and higher profits. In some places, sun-grown coffee has dominated the landscape. In Colombia, about 70 percent of coffee croplands have been converted to sungrown operations; sad news for birds, especially the migrators. According to the Cornell Laboratory for Avian Conservation, coffee farms can provide either good or bad habitat for birds, including wintering migrants from North America as well as tropical birds. Now the ball is in your court. If you, as coffee drinkers, still enjoy the Dutch plantation method of growing organic coffee in a shade-tree environment, which tastes better and is bird friendly—and—said coffee growers are happy with their profit doing so, all’s well that ends well. The next step is to recognize bird friendly coffee-growing and processing operations. My wife, Sue, has the answer to that one, and keeps after me all the time: “CHECK THE LABEL!” “Shade-grown” labels often appear on coffee packages, but these words are not regulated and they don’t tell you much about the actual growing conditions at the farm. Unfortunately, unless the packaging is accompanied by a third-party certification stamp, such as the Smithsonian’s “Bird Friendly” designation, “shade-grown” is often just a marketing buzzword. (Sound familiar?) As an example, some farms grow shade coffee among sparse, heavily pruned trees or even under banana crops. Unfortunately, these farms often lack diverse forest structure, offer little habitat for songbirds, and require fertilizers and pesticides to keep coffee growing. Coffee growers looking beyond the profit incentive are now organized, and, if you follow Sue’s advice and look at the label, these symbols can and will tell you what’s what, and who’s who.  SW

ot being a coffee drinker anymore, and not being in the bird-researcher loop as many of my friends are, the business of songbird conservation and coffee-growing methods went right over my head. That is, until Doug Baell grabbed my attention.

Live-Work Spaces: Pros and Cons


In Bend, such units exist in Northwest Crossing and in the Mill Quarter as well as in other areas. Many people currently work from their traditional homes with a separate home office and telecommute and meet clients outside the home. In a live-work unit for businesses that require meeting clients on a regular basis, the typical set-up is a ground floor office and upstairs living quarters. There are both advantages and disadvantages to this type of living arrangement. The main advantage is the elimination of commute time, and the related costs of commuting, such as gas and automobile mileage. When the weather is bad, you don’t have to worry about braving the elements to get to work.

Working from home also reduces traffic and reduces a person’s carbon footprint. Live-work spaces that are created in reconfigured downtown warehouses can help revitalize areas that may otherwise decline. Disadvantages arise if you lack self-discipline in separating your work and home life. Self-discipline is probably the most important factor; having the discipline to complete your work and not be distracted by the personal part of your life and likewise not becoming a workaholic at the other extreme. While this is true of any job, it is even more critical when you are on your own. Depending on your line of work, there may also be zoning regulations or community regulations that prevent you from having a business in your home. Live-work housing spaces can be an asset for workers and employers by reducing commute traffic, reducing the carbon footprint, reducing employer costs that can be passed on to workers, to name just a few. An often-overlooked item is that you can take a tax deduction for a home office space or the office space portion of a live-work space, which can take a bite out of your housing costs.

live-work space combines your work space with your living quarters. The Internet has made it possible for many people to work from home and has increased the popularity of such housing. With the continuing rise in costs of commercial office space, it makes sense to own or rent a live-work space. This is not a new idea, but an update on the past arrangement where storekeepers lived above their shops.

SCIENCE ADVICE GODDESS Destiny’s Problem Child

I saw this gorgeous girl at the coffeehouse at the mall two months ago. It was totally love at first sight. I keep hanging out there hoping to see her again. Am I nuts, or does love at first sight really exist? — Smitten It’s so special when a man tells a woman he’s deeply in love with her — except when her response is “Excuse me, but have we met?” Love at first sight sounds so romantic. There are those couples who claim they had it — causing mass nausea at dinner parties when they look into each other’s eyes and announce, “From the moment we saw each other, we just KNEW.” Uh, or did they? A Swiss psychology grad student, Florian Zsok, ran some experiments to see what love at first sight is actually made of. Zsok and his colleagues were looking for the three elements that psychologist Robert Sternberg theorizes interact to produce love: intimacy, commitment, and passion (made up of physical arousal, desire, excitement, and longing). They surveyed participants online and in a lab setting — asking them how they felt about people in photographs — and in three dating events, getting their reactions to people they’d just met. Of the 396 participants, love at first sight “was indicated 49 times by 32 different individuals.” (That rare and wonderful lightning struck twice or maybe three times for some.) And here’s a shocker: “None of the instances of (love at first sight) was reciprocal.”

Not surprisingly, none of the participants who said they’d felt love at first sight had the elements of intimacy or commitment as part of their experience. The one element they did have? Passion — in the form of “physical attraction.” Basically, the researchers empirically confirmed what some of us intuitively understand: “Love at first sight” is just a classier way of expressing the sentiment yelled from passing cars: “Hey, miniskirt! You’re late for your visit to My Penis Avenue!” As for couples who insist they had love at first sight, the researchers believe they could be retrospectively repainting their first meeting to make their relationship feel more special. The reality: “We just knew” is “we just got lucky” (stated in a way that makes frustrated single people long to commit hara-kiri with the nearest shrimp fork). Reminding yourself that you just have the plain old hots for this girl is probably the best way for Amy Alkon you to do what needs to be done — shift to some other activity (Masturbate! Play video games!) when the impulse strikes to stake out Coffeeland. Getting stuck on a total stranger this way probably makes it impossible to behave normally in their presence — or want to look closely enough to see who they really are. As alluring a concept as love at first sight is, in practice it tends to work out best with inanimate objects — a painting or an antique chair (something that doesn’t make big wet smacking sounds when it chews or take so long to text you back that you buy it a burial plot).

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As far back

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may feel quite sure that you’ve gotten as tall as you’re ever going to be. But that may not be true. If you were ever going to add another half-inch or more to your height, the near future would be the time for it. You are in the midst of what we in the consciousness industry call a “growth spurt.” The blooming and ripening could occur in other ways, as well. Your hair and fingernails may become longer faster than usual, and even your breasts or penis might undergo spontaneous augmentation. There’s no doubt that new brain cells will propagate at a higher rate, and so will the white blood cells that guard your physical health. Four weeks from now, I bet you’ll be noticeably smarter, wiser, and more robust.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You come into a delicatessen where you have to take a numbered ticket in order to get waited on. Oops. You draw 37 and the counter clerk has just called out number 17. That means 20 more people will have their turns before you. Damn! You settle in for a tedious vigil, putting down your bag and crossing your arms across your chest. But then what’s this? Two minutes later, the clerk calls out 37. That’s you! You go up to the counter and hand in your number, and amazingly enough, the clerk writes down your order. A few minutes later, you’ve got your food. Maybe it was a mistake, but who cares? All that matters is that your opportunity came earlier than you thought it would. Now apply this vignette as a metaphor for your life in the coming days.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s one of those bizarre times when what feels really good is in close alignment with what’s really good for you, and when taking the course of action that benefits you personally is probably what’s best for everyone else, too. I realize the onslaught of this strange grace may be difficult to believe. But it’s real and true, so don’t waste time questioning it. Relish and indulge in the freedom it offers you. Use it to shush the meddling voice in your head that informs you about what you supposedly SHOULD be doing instead of what you’re actually doing. ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may get richer quicker in 2018, Aries — especially if you refuse to sell out. You may accumulate more clout — especially if you treat everyone as your equal and always wield your power responsibly. I bet you will also experience deeper, richer emotions — especially if you avoid people who have low levels of emotional intelligence. Finally, I predict you will get the best sex of your life in the next 12 months — especially if you cultivate the kind of peace of mind in which you’ll feel fine about yourself if you don’t get any sex at all. P.S.: You’d be wise to start working on these projects immediately. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The members of the fungus family, like mushrooms and molds, lack chlorophyll, so they can’t make food from sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide. To get the energy they need, they “eat” plants. That’s lucky for us. The fungi keep the earth fresh. Without them to decompose fallen leaves, piles of compost would continue to accumulate forever. Some forests would be so choked with dead matter that they couldn’t thrive. I invite you to take your inspiration from the heroic fungi, Taurus. Expedite the decay and dissolution of the worn-out and obsolete parts of your life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I’m guessing you have been hungrier than usual. At times you may have felt voracious, even insatiable. What’s going on? I don’t think this intense yearning is simply about food, although it’s possible your body is trying to compensate for a nutritional deficiency. At the very least, you’re also experiencing a heightened desire to be understood and appreciated. You may be aching for a particular quality of love that you haven’t been able to give or get. Here’s my theory: Your soul is famished for experiences that your ego doesn’t sufficiently value or seek out. If I’m correct, you should meditate on what your soul craves but isn’t getting enough of.

51 VOLUME 21  ISSUE 49  /  December 7, 2017  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

as ancient Egypt, Rome, and Greece, people staged ceremonies to mark the embarkation of a new ship. The intention was to bestow a blessing for the maiden voyage and ever thereafter. Good luck! Safe travels! Beginning in 18th-century Britain and America, such rituals often featured the smashing of a wine bottle on the ship’s bow. Later, a glass container of champagne became standard. In accordance with the current astrological indicators, I suggest that you come up with your own version of this celebratory gesture. It will soon be time for your launch.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The brightly colored birds known as bee-eaters are especially fond of eating bees and wasps. How do they avoid getting stung? They snatch their prey in mid-air and then knock them repeatedly against a tree branch until the stinger falls off and the venom is flushed out. In the coming weeks, Cancerian, you could perhaps draw inspiration from the bee-eaters’ determination to get what they want. How might you be able to draw nourishment from sources that aren’t entirely benign? How could you extract value from influences that you have be careful with?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The coming months will be a ripe time to revise and rework your past — to reconfigure the consequences that emerged from what happened once upon a time. I’ll trust you to make the ultimate decisions about the best ways to do that, but here are some suggestions. 1. Revisit a memory that has haunted you, and do a ritual that resolves it and brings you peace. 2. Go back and finally do a crucial duty you left unfinished. 3. Return to a dream you wandered away from prematurely, and either recommit yourself to it, or else put it to rest for good.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The astrological omens suggest that now is a favorable time to deepen your roots and bolster your foundations and revitalize traditions that have nourished you. Oddly enough, the current planetary rhythms are also conducive to you and your family and friends playing soccer in the living room with a ball made from rolled-up socks, pretending to be fortune-telling psychics and giving each other past-life readings, and gathering around the kitchen table to formulate a conspiracy to achieve world domination. And no, the two sets of advice I just gave you are not contradictory.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In accordance with the long-term astrological omens, I invite you to make five long-term promises to yourself. They were formulated by the teacher Shannen Davis. Say them aloud a few times to get a feel for them. 1. “I will make myself eminently teachable through the cultivation of openness and humility.” 2. “I won’t wait around hoping that people will give me what I can give myself.” 3. “I’ll be a good sport about the consequences of my actions, whether they’re good, bad, or misunderstood.” 4. “As I walk out of a room where there are many people who know me, I won’t worry about what anyone will say about me.” 5. “I will only pray for the things I’m willing to be the answer to.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): To discuss a problem is not the same as doing something practical to correct it. Many people don’t seem to realize this. They devote a great deal of energy to describing and analyzing their difficulties, and may even imagine possible solutions, but then neglect to follow through. And so nothing changes. The sad or bad situation persists. Of all the signs in the zodiac, you Scorpios are among the least prone to this disability. You specialize in taking action to fulfill your proposed fixes. Just this once, however, I urge you to engage in more inquiry and conversation than usual. Just talking about the problem could cure it.

’ve written about the frustrating hypocrisy of living in a state with a ravenous appetite for the tax and licensing revenue brought in by the production and sale of cannabis, but with repressive and absurd rules about where people are allowed to consume once they have made their purchase, and paid a hefty 20+ percent tax. I’ve made the comparison to the craft beer industry, and how well it would have fared in its nascent days if you could buy a microbrew, but not be allowed to drink it anywhere except inside a private home, or in a tent shielded from public view. These are unfair, senseless laws that both impact the growth that cannabis provides as an economic engine, but can also devastate those living in Section 8 housing, for example, where consuming in your home can lead to eviction. Thank goodness we have such a robust system to help the homeless—oh wait, right. I’m embarrassed it’s taken me so long to check out the NW Cannabis Club, but I recently made amends with three visits. I had a good time, and as far as I know, my vaping inside a structure other than my home did not result in an uptick in crime in the surrounding neighborhood, fist fights or any of the other dire concerns that keep other such businesses from opening. Located on southeast Portland’s Foster Road., it defines the term, “non-descript.” You might mistake it for a bar, or, based upon the lack of windows, a strip club. Nope. It’s a members-only club where the hardest thing you can order is a cup of Keurig brewed coffee. On my first visit in October, I paid my one-time membership fee of $20, garnering me a nifty membership card and an explanation of some basic rules: No cannabis is sold, so don’t ask. No alcohol is allowed, though an array of N/A beverages and snacks are available for purchase. The staff explained that for future visits, I would pay an entry fee of between $5 and $10, based on whatever was happening on that day or evening. Once checked in, I entered into a very

large room with a long bar and a small stage, with numerous chairs, tables and couches spread throughout. A flight of stairs takes you down to a basement lounge that looks like every well-appointed rec room I got high in during high school— except, of course, I didn’t try cannabis until I was 21, so strike that last part. There are e-nails, vaporizers and volcanoes spread throughout, along with alcohol wipes aplenty. There’s a spacious outside deck for warmer weather, and pool and foosball tables. TVs are on but not paid much mind. I’ve been to two events in the evenings: a product demo night and another for Grow magazine. Although bustling, it wasn’t so packed as to be unmanageable. I checked in on a recent Sunday am and found fewer than 10 members filling the seats. I spoke with Michael Keysor, owner of NWCC, which he opened in October. 2015 after having his NW Cannabis Market in Seattle shut down. “It housed MMJ patient providers for nearly five years,” he shared, “providing safe access for over 2.5 million patient visits, and a safe space for over 600 providers.” NWCC has 9,600 members, and expects to hit 10K before the end of the year. The club produces 10 events per month, and their 40 Business Members bring another five or six. I asked Keysor how they are allowed to do this. Was it a grandfathered permit? He simply replied, “No comment.” Fair enough. Much like magnets, I don’t always need to know how things work to enjoy them. I’m just glad the place exists, and I wish more did. Oregon embraces the alcohol industry in a fierce bear hug, with more beer/ wine/cider/bathtub gin fests than I can count. There is no shortage of venues where I can walk in and have an adult beverage, or six. But regulatory agencies don’t want me smoking on the street? So fix the damn laws, or stop taxing and then discriminating against those who paid them. NW Cannabis Club
