Bag Ban: A Litany of Laughable Arguments Against

A

WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / DECEMBER 13, 2018 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

s we reported in a web story last week, on Dec. 5, the Bend City Council had its first reading of an ordinance that would see Bend’s consumption of plastic bags cut 4 down significantly. The new ordinance, up for a second reading later this month, would prohibit retailers from handing out plastic bags at the check-out counter, and would allow stores to charge customers a 10-cent fee for each paper bag the customer uses. Those receiving food benefits would be exempt from paying the fee. While the City Council is reluctant to call it a “plastic bag ban” because some plastic would still be allowed (namely, bags used for produce and bulk items), we’re OK with calling it a ban. There should be a ban on more single-use plastic nation- and worldwide, as one small part of the the cultural changes that need to happen as humanity wraps its head around the negative impacts we’re having on the planet. The arguments in opposition to this bag ban have been thin at best. Some have even made us laugh. Some at the recent council meeting argued that people don’t wash their reusable bags often enough—and that not washSTERLING SILVER JEWELRY, INCENSE, CANDLES, HAND BLOWNingGLASS, ESSENTIAL them invites bad bacteria and introduces OILS, HATS, GLOVES AND PURSES, TAPESTRIES, CRYSTAL ANDtheSTONE SPECIMENS, potential for more illness. It’s nice that those using that argument are concerned DRAGON, FAIRIES, OH MY! about people’s health—because rivers and oceans choked with single-use plastic also pose health problems. By that same logic, you could make the argument that we should all use single-use dishware, because peoSTERLING SILVER JEWELRY • INCENSE•CANDLES • BOOKS ple aren’t responsible enough to wash their dishes. If you’re reading this, don’t forget to wash your reusable grocery bags from time to time—but keep using them. Another amusing argument introduced recently is the one stating that Bend has yet to conduct a study to find out whether plastic is really a problem in our local area. This one should warrant not much more than a face-palm. A simple look at the fences around Knott Landfill reveal one striking visage: Plastic bags, stuck in the fences and blowing

every which way. Do we really need a local study to help us understand that single-use plastic is bad, when national ones suffice? For example, according to the U.S. National Park Service’s Mote Marine Lab, plastic never truly decomposes; even when immersed in water, it turns into “microplastic” that can harm people and animals and marine life. It also gums up the machinery at our landfill. Another thin argument from local pundits: that paper bags require a bigger footprint to produce than plastic. That may indeed be true—all the more reason to use reusable bags instead of single-use anything. But that argument ignores the fact that a paper bag will biodegrade in our lifetime. Yet another comical argument against reducing our local consumption of plastic: That this is something that should be legislated at the state level, not the local one. We’d love to see a statewide ban on single-use plastic—and not just the grocery bag type—but until that happens, we appreciate the fact that local governments still have the power to answer a call from their constituents, and to do the right thing at the local level—no matter what those higher up in the governmental chain happen to be doing. This bag ban effort stemmed from a group of concerned locals who saw a problem and advocated to change it. That’s what local advocacy and action looks like. Were we to wait for federal or state action on any number of fronts, we’d be waiting a long time—and the action may not take into consideration the local feedback that informed this particular ordinance. When it comes down to it, many of the changes that are going to be required of humanity, in this time of rising awareness of our impacts on the planet, are going to hurt, and will require shifts, in our minds and our actions, away from “the way we’ve always done it.” In this case, however, the “hurt” is negligible and involves simply remembering to bring bags to the store—or, barring that, paying to carry your stuff with a non-plastic bag. That’s a hurt we’re willing to endure.

It’ll be a waste of money not to focus many studies into fewer clinical trials of the ‘Golden Standard’ with placebo, blinded, cross over etc. and with more patients.

BEND AIR QUALITY, SCHOOL IDLING I wanted to bring to your attention the air quality issues faced by previous communities we lived in. As residents of mountainous areas, we are subject to inverted temperature conditions commonly found in winter months during high pressure systems. Inversions cause cold air to sink and remain in place (ie stagnate) without gas exchange that usually allows local pollutants to dissipate and move on downstream in the atmosphere. In the summer, local vehicle pollutants can create heavy levels of surface ozone via reactions with sunlight. Exposure to these pollutants is a wellknown source for lung diseases and cancers. In my previous residence in Salt Lake City, winter inversions allowed pollutants to build up into air quality levels rivaling the worst in the world. Lung disease has grown dramatically in Salt Lake and similar urban environments. As a young and relatively small city, Bend is definitely on-track to

Like you said in your title, cannabis is now a commodity and will be treated as such. The CEOs and investors of steel companies generally know nothing of welding, fabrication, or truly anything that has to do with steel other than buying and selling it. Why should it be different for cannabis now that it is being viewed as a commodity? I wish it was different, as I do not feel cannabis can be thought of as a commodity the same way as steel, but we activists had our moment and it has been co-opted by business interests. —Mitchell Colbert, via Bendsource.com

create similar conditions unless people make concerted efforts to reduce their emissions. Idling is very common here whether in the city, mountains, or in-between. One source of local emissions is of course automobiles. It pains me to see our teachers and students subject to constantly idling vehicles twice daily at pick up and drop off. Local idling creates local micro-climates of dense pollution concentration. In winter this problem will likely persist without people being mindful of the air we all breathe, and so I would encourage you to investigate a national campaign to encourage awareness of this issue. —Dave Baczek

N RESPONSE TO THE OP-ED RE-TITLED, “CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION SHOULD NOT BE PARTISAN—NOR IGNORED LOCALLY,” ON 12/6 Climate change is definitely a bipartisan issue, though that has rarely been the case in our federal government’s response to the climate chaos resulting from rising levels of greenhouse gasses. Citizens of the United States may not be feeling the worst effects of climate change ( just ask former residents of the island nation of Kribati, who are losing entire islands to rising seas), but our country is one of the world’s greatest producers of greenhouse gasses. Climate change ought to be the highest priority for every government official, at every level. Citizen’s Climate Lobby (CCL) is a national organization working to introduce and pass Carbon Fee and Dividend (CF&D) legislation. CF&D would put a fee on carbon at its first use. That fee would then be returned to the people in the form of a monthly dividend to offset the expected increases in costs for consumers. The increased costs, in turn, would catapult innovations and development of carbon-free energy and products. In late November, a bipartisan group of representatives introduced CF&D legislation to the House. Thank you to Representatives Theodore Deutch, John Delaney, Charlie Crist, Brian Fitzpatrick, and Francis Rooney, who sponsored the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, H.R. 7173. This is the result of years of efforts by CCL chapters across the country. Getting this bill passed will take great effort. The Bend CCL

Powering the Dredge

The latest proposal to fund Mirror Pond dredging includes increasing franchise fees for Pacific Power

7

By Nicole Vulcan increases to take a more holistic approach, and for the City to look at all ways a prospective increase could be used. “The City of Bend is on a really constrained budget, and that’s all the more reason for us to look at this once-every20-year opportunity. For heaven’s sake, we should have all of these things all up there for us to judge and say, ‘this is the most important thing’ and this is the second-most important thing,’” said City Councilor Barb Campbell. “I just want Mirror Pond up there with everything else, comparing apples as closely as we can.” A Divisive Subject On the issue of Mirror Pond, Bendites tend to fall into one of three camps: Those who see it as an “iconic” feature that must be dredged to preserve its history; those who favor leaving the river to its own devices and for silt to build up in the most “natural” fashion possible behind a dam, and those who favor removing the dam and allowing the river to flow in its natural state. That last option, following PacifiCorp’s 2016 decision to retain the dam instead of selling it, is off the table for now. There’s also a fourth philosophical camp: Those who want the process to attain some type of public consensus, and for the process around deciding to dredge—or not—to be as transparent as possible. This summer, local activist Foster Fell emerged as a strong advocate for transparency. When meetings with city and parks officials around Mirror Pond were held privately and without public meeting notices, Fell aimed to file suit against the City. Fell dropped that suit in August after hearing that Bend Mayor Casey Roats had been suffering a health crisis. An Advocate for Fish Passage BPRD board member Nathan Hovekamp is one who believes the public has yet to come to a consensus on dredging. Hovekamp acknowledges that BPRD conducted a community survey polling people about their thoughts on an overall vision for Mirror Pond—but that was before Pacific Power’s 2016 announcement it would retain the dam. “It’s one level of outrage piled on another level of outrage, argued and discussed ad infinitum about the future of Mirror Pond and all of that, but the funding question is relatively new—at least the current configuration of funding is still new—and I think it’s clear there has not been a robust

public involvement process,” Hovekamp said. Hovekamp is also an advocate of adding provisions for a fish passage on Newport Dam to the discussion around dredging. “This is a tremendous opportunity to talk about doing something that promotes a healthier more functional river,” he said, suggesting monies be set aside as a mitigation fund. “I’m not trying to be an obstructionist,” he said, “but let’s have this other discussion.” BPRD Board Chair Brady Fuller disagrees, saying the board’s position is that there’s already enough consensus to dredge, pointing to the “process by which the preferred alternative vision developed, and the resolutions passed by BPRD board and (the Bend City) Council inform our support for dredging,” he stated in an email. Moving Forward Before any proposal for dredging can move forward, the Bend City Council will need to vote on whether to increase franchise fees to Pacific Power—and then to decide whether they’ll reserve at least part of that increase in funds for dredging. After January, the council will include new councilor Gena Goodman-Campbell, who, during the election, said she opposed using public funds to dredge Mirror Pond. Goodman-Campbell told the Source Tuesday she’d be in favor of increasing franchise fees to pay for other projects, but said: “I remain opposed to spending any public funds on dredging Mirror Pond, and we should be clear that this is what this proposal is.” Incoming Bend Mayor Sally Russell indicated support of the new dredging funding proposal. “For the first time in 10 years, the community has found a way to dredge Mirror Pond, reducing the large silt buildup, and rebuilding the pond edges, and there is a significant amount of funding pledged as well,” Russell wrote in an email to the Source Monday. “Honestly, it’s about time this work was done.” The next step in moving the project forward: developing a contract between the City, BPRD, Pacific Power and MPS. Fuller of BPRD said it would be appropriate to “continue discussions and support planning for fish passage at the dam” during contract negotiations. Those negotiations would also include opportunities for public notice and input.

We wish everyone a healthy, happy and safe holiday season.

L

eaders in Bend are looking at a new way to fund the dredging of Mirror Pond: Increasing franchise fees for the utility that owns Newport Dam. The proposal, which became more of a reality following last week’s meetings with Pacificorp—which owns Pacific Power—would see the City of Bend contributing $300,000 to dredging, with Bend Park and Recreation District and PacificCorp Foundation contributing equal amounts. A representative for Mirror Pond Solutions—the entity that owns the land under Mirror Pond—said Tuesday the group had raised $320,000 in private pledges, leaving about $5.5 million of the projected $6.7 million project cost unfunded. Under the new proposal, the City of Bend would increase franchise fees issued to Pacific Power, which owns the dam that forms the impoundment creating Mirror Pond, to fund the rest. Those additional funds would be added to the City’s general fund—but reportedly cannot legally be earmarked for dredging. Utility companies operating in Bend pay a franchise fee to the City, with Pacific Power currently paying a 5-percent franchise fee, gleaned from the rates it charges customers. It’s not yet clear how much more Pacific Power customers would pay under the franchise fee increase, though according to PacifiCorp spokesperson Tom Gauntt, “We are required to pass that fee onto customer(s) who live within the city limits of Bend and it is itemized on customer bills.” A New Strategy The new funding strategy is a departure from the proposal brought forth by MPS earlier this year. During a May meeting with the Source Weekly, representatives of MPS proposed having the City pay around $1 million, with BPRD kicking in more than $2 million. MPS told the Source they’d secured permits from the Army Corps of Engineers and others to proceed with dredging, which they say has been building up sediment since it was last dredged in 1984. The current franchise agreement with PacificCorp runs through Dec. 31, and city officials are working on a new agreement. According to City of Bend Communications Director Anne Aurand, franchise agreements have a maximum 20-year term. Of the current one, she said, “The parties are intending to extend this through June 30, 2019, to provide a little more time to finalize details of a new agreement.” At least one city leader wants the notion of franchise fee

O

nline retailers may soon need to collect sales taxes when they sell items to people who live in states with a sales tax. On June 21, the Supreme Court ruled that a state may collect sales tax from taxpayers located in other states. The ruling stems from a 2016 case in South Dakota, where the state government sued Wayfair—an online furniture retailer—to collect state sales tax. Under the new ruling, an online seller in Oregon—which has no sales tax‚ would have to tack on sales tax when selling to someone in a state which has a sales tax. The rapid implementation of that ruling has some retailers concerned. Valerie Sasaki, of the Portland law firm Samuels Yoelin Kantor, wrote on the firm’s website that the ruling: “is going to open the floodgates for state sales tax audits on out of state companies that sell goods or perform enumerated services for customers in their states.” On Nov. 28, U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) wrote a letter to Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-New York) asking them to enact legislation before the end of the year to protect small businesses from the “excessive burdens” as a result of the court’s decision. In the letter, the senators wrote that some states have established implementation dates as soon as Jan. 1, 2019. They also wrote that it’s possible that states will attempt to seek retroactive tax collection, imposing additional burdens and creating additional constitutional challenges. It would be a totally new system to implement in Oregon, where retailers don’t yet have systems set up to collect tax. “We do not believe it is realistic to ask small businesses to have these new systems set up shortly after the holiday season, which is the busiest time of the year for retailers,” the senators wrote. “This is especially true in states where firms have no experience collecting sales taxes.” According to the Oregon Department of Revenue, the court’s decision would mean Oregon businesses selling to customers in states with a sales tax will need to collect and pay sales taxes to the sales tax states, if they meet the requirements. Bend has many companies that operate in the online marketplace, including larger retailers such as Ruffwear,

Hydroflask, Silipint and Cairn, as well as smaller retailers that sell items from their websites. Matt Keenan, an accountant and financial analyst for Cairn—a Bendbased company that sells boxes of outdoor-based gear online—said in an email the Wayfair ruling has changed a lot about online sales and there are still a lot of unclear issues. “Businesses who sell online should work with their accountants to find the most appropriate route for their business,” Keenan said. “Anyone with an even mildly complicated situation would probably outsource to a company like Avalara (a company that does tax compliance.) They are not cheap and if states do end up trying to enforce retroactive collection, it’s an additional financial burden—paying taxes they never collected.” Merkley and Wyden asked in their letter for a moratorium of one year to provide time for businesses to comply with the new law. “Previous Congressional consideration of remote sales tax legislation shows that there is bipartisan support for a runway, or phase-in period, for small businesses to comply with any new collection requirements,” the senators wrote. “For example, both the Marketplace Fairness Act and Remote Transactions Parity Act would have provided time for small businesses to adjust.” “I (personally) support our Senators’ push for a ban on retroactive sales tax collection,” Keenan said. “In addition, this large change in how e-commerce works in the U.S. should not have hinged on this one ruling with—per Avalara’s website—over 25 states having laws go into effect within seven months of the ruling.” “State laws are too complicated to force businesses to do this on such short notice,” Keenan continued. “For instance, a change in revenue recognition rules (ASU2014-09) by FASB (Financial Accounting Standards Board) was passed in 2014, going into effect in 2017, then delayed to 2018—almost four years for the change to take place. Almost four years for companies and accounting firms to plan for the changes and how each business will adapt. “This sort of sweeping change should have a much longer and much more detailed roll out process,” he said.

On His Own Again

SOUND

Jacob Miller is feeling at home in his own skin with his debut solo record on the way By Chris Young

“With this music, I’m not wearing a suit or playing a character; it’s just me telling stories and sharing songs that are personal and honest.” —JACOB MILLER The road led Miller back to Portland, where he decided to stay put. Soon thereafter, he started an old-time band, Jacob Miller and the Bridge City Crooners. Playing a blend of jazz, country blues and jug band swing while pulling influences from ‘60s soul and early rock, the six-piece spent some seven years together recording albums, touring the country and abroad, and making audiences dance everywhere they went.

S

As the band took off and its fan base grew, making music with the Bridge City Crooners, for a time, “felt like my ‘life’s work,” Miller says. But playing music rooted in the past didn’t scratch all the itches of a 20-something songwriter living in the present. Seeking a new path to express himself, Miller and the band announced they were calling it quits in the summer of 2017. “The transition was intimidating after doing the Crooners for so long,” Miller says. “That group was an ideal vehicle for a good time, and not so much one for me to write about my own struggles or life.” As the Crooners amicably split, Miller immediately began penning the tunes that would appear on his three-track folk pop EP Lifted, which was released on Halloween day 2017. “The songs on the EP are quite melancholy,” he says, but illustrate Miller’s modern sensibilities and an intimate side of his wonderful voice. Visiting “ideas of heartbreak, personal struggle, and spending intentional time with loved ones,” the new music combines “two opposing influences.” He explains: “My American roots influences [of ] jazz, blues, ragtime, [and] Piedmont picking” and his “more contemporary singer-songwriter style, but approached with a jazz, fingerstyle mind.” Unlike the frenzied, swinging energy of the Bridge City Crooners, Miller’s original material is, as he puts it, “sparse and lyrically dense.”

Striking out on his own has been scary, but Jacob Miller is taking it all in stride.

It’s also the most true to himself he’s ever been. “With this music, I’m not wearing a suit or playing a character; it’s just me telling stories and sharing songs that are personal and honest.” In September, Miller successful crowdfunded more than $10,000 for his debut solo album, a project he actually began recording almost a year ago in January. “I recorded the majority of the album in a living room in southeast Portland over the course of several months,” Miller says. Working alongside engineer and musician

Ryan Oxford (who’s worked with Y La Bamba, Nick Delffs and Like a Villain) at his studio Color Therapy Recording, “I played most everything on the album (drums, keys, guitar, bass, vocals) but did have a few guest folks: Phil Rogers (of Haley Heynderickx) drums on a song and Mel Guérison (of Merō and Moorea Masa) does vocals on a song.” Currently being mixed in Nashville by Zachary Dyke (Liza Anne, Molly Parden, COIN), “The album is a very hard and intentional departure from the Crooners' sound,” Miller says. There’s “a ’70s pop vibe to it and it’s been compared to Andy Shauf, Blake Mills and Paul Simon.” With the album expected out this spring, Miller has also been taking time to share his new music, like on his first-ever solo tour (which stopped across the Midwest, even his hometown, in October) as well as this Saturday at Tumalo’s The Bite—where you can expect “a combination of American traditional songs, originals and some holiday tunes due to the time of year and my weakness for Christmas music,” adding, “damn you, Amy Grant!”

Sing along with the Masters Bend choir makes a joyful noise at the Tower By Elizabeth Warnimont

T

he Mastersingers of Central Oregon make spirits bright with John Rutter’s Magnificat, plus a handful of favorite holiday tunes, at the Tower Theatre this weekend. Rutter’s popular elaboration of the classic song of praise, also known as the “Song of Mary,” is a joy-filled masterwork the Mastersingers will perform with the accompaniment of a 25-piece orchestra culled from the Central Oregon Symphony and a few exceptional musicians from local high schools and colleges. Sing-alongs will follow. “Last year at the Tower we sang Vivaldi’s Gloria, a late Baroque piece. This year we wanted to swing the other direction and do something more modern,” says Mastersingers Artistic Director Christian Clark. “We chose it in large part because Rutter is a lot of fun to sing and perform. It’s frequently appreciated by both the performers and audiences. It’s a fun choice.” The epic work will be followed by several popular Christmas sing-alongs. The name “Magnificat” is taken from the first line of the poem purportedly spoken by Mary, mother of Jesus, upon a visit with her cousin Elizabeth. In the Bible, in

The Mastersingers performed Vivaldi’s Gloria at last year’s Tower concert.

the book of Luke, when a pregnant Mary visits Elizabeth, the baby in Elizabeth’s womb leaps upon hearing Mary’s voice, whereupon Mary responds with the poem, praising God for favoring his humble servant with the immaculate conception. The first line reads, in Latin, “Magnificat anima mea Dominum,” or “My soul magnifies the Lord.” The program will include equally bright renditions of Jingle Bells and Deck the Halls, and a new arrangement of Silent Night – sung

in German, then English, then finally to a new melody utilizing the same, original lyrics. “We’re especially excited about Silent Night, as 2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the favorite carol,” Clark adds. The audience will be invited to sing along with the English-language carols. Rutter’s Magnificat is sung in Latin, with added lyrics sung in English. Clark says he’s been active in choral music for many years, during his time as a school teacher as well as involvement with various

community choir groups. He is currently a member of Bend Camerata, a vocal chamber ensemble, which will perform as part of the upcoming A Capella Festival in Bend. “We’re not (directly) involved in the festival, but we will sing that Sunday with Wanderlust Tours as part of the Art in Nature series,” he says. The A Cappella Festival concludes with the optional snowshoeing trek with Wanderlust Tours, where participants will enjoy a bonfire, hot chocolate (with or without Crater Lake Spirits vodka) and an outdoor concert by Bend Camerata at the end of the trek. The musicians will perform in a natural lava amphitheater, “rain, snow or shine,” Clark says. As of press time, all-access and VIP passes for the A Capella Festival were sold out. However, some tickets may still be available for individual festival events.

lmost a decade ago, singer-songwriter Jacob Miller boarded Amtrak’s famous Empire Builder line with a one-way ticket headed west. With a population of less than 1,000, Miller left behind the smalltown life of Eden, Wis., with his suitcase and a Fender Jaguar guitar in hand. With no real plans other than striking out on his own, he spent a year in the Pacific Northwest before taking to the road again—this time with a goal of delving deeper into traditional American music while hitchhiking from place to place, working odd jobs on farms and discovering himself.

own wood stove is a lot of exercise. I’ll do it as long as I can—at least to fill my own wood stove.” Brunson was born outside of Newberg and grew up near the coast in Lincoln and Tillamook Counties, where he says he was raised on deer meat. In those days, before World War II, “It was kill your own meat or go without. No one had any money.” He’s lived in Bend since 1963. Brunson’s sister, Marjorie M. Watkins, along with his father, Howard P. Brunson—also a logger by trade— self-published a book, “I Remember Logging.” His take on the current state of logging and wildfires in the West: more selective logging and thinning. “The controlled burns are not working. If you look around here, they’re a disaster. It’s killing the forests they’re trying to save.” Brunson says his other hobby was once metal detecting—one he’s had to give up because his back can no longer

stand up to the pick and shovel work. “But I’ll always be a rock hound,” he adds. He hasn’t found any gold in the past four years, although in 2014, he sold more than $1,000 in gold to local buyers. Married for 57 years, Brunson’s wife, Betty Jean, died five years ago. He now lives in a modest trailer home with his small standard poodle, Marybell, and has kids who often visit. When not watching the Trail Blazers, he likes to read fiction. He’s also been a longtime Oregon State fan, but says, “I even root for the Ducks now,” adding that he’s particularly excited about the Ducks’ newest basketball star, Bol Bol—the Ducks’ highest-ranked prospect ever. Brunson says his key to longevity is “to really enjoy vigorous exercise and being fortunate enough to being born into a Christian family.” With a mother who lived into her 90s, Brunson says he is driven to keep on going and catch up with his father, who lived to 105.

Alternative Ways to Give the Gift of Art

A

great alternative to giving a gift is giving an experience—a way to make time for family and friends and to do something fun. One offering that can incorporate groups of friends and family: a painting class with Karen Eland. This is not a typical painting class, however. Eland only paints with either coffee or beer—and so will participants. “This is less of a watercolor painting class and more of a chance to get your feet wet and be amazed that you can paint with coffee or beer,” says Eland. The class is suitable for any number of people. Eland hosts classes in her studio at The Workhouse and also makes house calls. Eland starts by providing students with a pre-drawn sketch they can work from. Students can also choose to paint their own subject on a blank paper, but

the guide can help. And of course, Eland also provides the libations students are painting with, so they’re literally sipping and painting. Eland says most people walk away feeling amazed they’re able to make a realistic painting. “I like seeing people go from being

nervous to being proud of themselves,” shares Eland. It’s the perfect effect of art. Karen Eland

In last week’s Artwatch, I mentioned some lovely illustrated books by Oregon

artists. I was excited to find out this week that Sisters painter Paul Alan Bennett is in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign to produce his own book from his paintings. Titled “Night Skies,” the book will contain 44 paintings Bennett has created over the last 30 years. You may think 44 paintings is a lot, but when you’re inspired by the night skies of Central Oregon, it kind of makes sense. “I think that the simple act of looking up regularly at the stars and learning a bit about their mythology and positions is a healthy activity for the soul,” Bennett states in his Kickstarter description. And while the book won’t land in time for Christmas, wouldn’t it be a really nice holiday treat to get this artist funded, so the region’s beautiful skies can get the recognition they deserve? “Night Skies”

lack of English does not hurt their working relationship. “We know what to do; we just don’t talk much.” During these times of caravans and proposed border walls, Brunson says he has nothing but respect for his co-workers. “We’re all immigrants if you trace your family back very far,” he adds. Brunson was seriously injured in a logging accident at age 36 when he felled a rotten snag on himself, saying it was “one of the dumbest things I’ve ever done.” The accident wrecked his back and gave him a depressed skull fracture and a plastic plate in his head. With his logging career cut short, he worked for the Oregon Department of Transportation for 26 years and pumped gas for 10 years after that. “But I cut wood in the meantime because I love it out there and I love chainsaws,” Brunson says. He says he bought his first chainsaw in 1948, an 80-pound McCulloch. Around 1975, he started buying commercial wood-cutting permits and says he used to cut more than 100 cords a year. But at age 70, “I started slowing down, losing my stamina. But I’m not going to quit because it’s keeping me healthy. Even cutting wood for your

hen setting up an appointment to talk with 92-year-old Virgil Brunson, he made two things clear: One, our meeting cannot interfere with his firewood gathering, and two, it absolutely cannot be during a Portland Trail Blazers game. If he and his partners are delivering a cord of firewood, they make sure to be done and home in time for tipoff. Logging season is pretty much over for the year, though there are often some good days in December before the heavy snows arrive, Brunson says. But these days, he admits, “I don’t know if I ever really make any money logging.” He says the money is beside the point—which is to get out into the fresh air and remain active. In his 10th decade of life, Brunson still operates a chainsaw and drives his Ford pickup—but has younger co-workers who help with heavy lifting. On a recent delivery, Brunson politely declined the customer’s offer to help, climbing into the pickup bed to help his young co-worker throw off the rounds. Brunson says he works with several Hispanic men who live in his southeast Bend neighborhood. “They’re the strongest people I’ve ever worked with. Not only that, they’re darn nice people.” His failing hearing and his co-workers’

Facebook Post Launches Salsa Company

eople had been trying to talk him into it for years. Chris Ringo developed his salsa recipe after moving to Oregon from Texas to marry his wife, Ruby. He couldn’t find a salsa he liked and missed the Tex-Mex flavors from home. His salsa always found its way onto the table when they had people over. After guests tried it, they often responded with, “This is the best salsa I’ve ever had,” and, “Why aren’t you marketing this?”

“My wife keeps taking away all my delicious salsa and selling it, so I go buy stuff to make more—but when I get that batch finished, she tells me she’s already sold all that too.” —CHRIS RINGO Ruby Ringo asked if she could try one post on Facebook to see what happens. After years of saying no, Chris Ringo said yes. In the evening post, she offered to ship jars of salsa to friends and family. They woke to 19 orders, and Pirate Ringo’s Salsa was born. The couple quickly decided they couldn’t produce out of their kitchen and needed a bigger space. With Chris Ringo working for the U.S. Postal Service, they also needed a co-packer because he had limited time. Almost two years since the Facebook post, Pirate

Screen-printed with soy ink, 100 percent cotton bag from Terrebonne-based company, Paper Sushi. Available at papersushishop.com. Lightweight Black Hole Gear Tote, 17" x 13" x 12", $49. The illustrated face on the Pirate Ringo’s Salsa label is Chris Ringo, which he drew himself. Through genealogical research he discovered there were pirates in his family.

Ringo’s Salsa was on store shelves. The Ringos have a big family, with five kids. Ruby Ringo is a stay-at-home mom while running the salsa business. Chris often teases and says, “I made the salsa to eat, because I’m a big fat guy who likes eating salsa. My wife keeps taking away all my delicious salsa and selling it, so I go buy stuff to make more—but when I get that batch finished, she tells me she’s already sold all that, too. It’s pitiful, I tell ya.” Smoky chipotle is behind the great flavor and the rich, crimson color in the original Pirate Ringo’s Salsa. Tomatoes are used as filler in many cooked salsa brands to keep costs down, but Chris Ringo doesn’t take any shortcuts.

Yo Ho Ho Spanish Rice Hearty Pirate Chili 1 cup rice 1 ½ cups water ¼ cup original Pirate Ringo’s Salsa Pinch of salt Bring water, salsa and a pinch of salt to a boil in a large saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Add rice and stir. Cover the pot and simmer for 18 minutes, remove from heat and let it sit for five minutes. Fluff rice with fork. For lazy pirates, ditch this recipe and grab a bag of precooked rice. Heat in microwave and stir in salsa.

1 lb. ground beef 15.5 oz can chili beans ½ cup or more original Pirate Ringo’s Salsa ½ cup tomato sauce 1 onion 1 tsp. avocado oil Salt to taste Heat olive oil in large pot. Add chopped onion, cook for five minutes. Add ground beef and break apart; cook until beef is cooked through. Add tomato sauce, Pirate Ringo’s salsa and chili beans. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Mild is listed on the label, but it eats like a hot. The salsa is rich, flavorful and smoky. Heat starts to hit the back of your palate and continues to bloom. I have a high tolerance for heat, so it was perfect for me. My husband was my chip model when I took photographs for this article. When his shoot was finished, I put the salsa next to him so I could photograph the chili and rice. When I was done, so was the salsa. Luckily, it comes in a 17-ounce jar so there was some for me. At $16.95, this is an expensive salsa, but it goes a long way. With one jar I served chips and salsa, cooked chili and Spanish rice and had a little left over. It goes great in sloppy joes and meatball sandwiches, and you can add it to cream cheese or sour cream for a quick dip. More flavors—including Pieces of Eight and Pirate’s Inferno—are coming in 2019. You won’t find heat in Pieces of Eight, just lots of flavor. Chris Ringo developed it as a gift for his wife because she’s sensitive to heat. Pirate’s inferno is a different story. With habanero and jalapeno, it packs a lot of heat, but it’s balanced out with sweet mango and peach. When I tried it, I didn’t first notice the heat and then boom, fire in the hole!

AT ETERNITY’S GATE: From the director of “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” comes a look about the final years of Vincent van Gogh. The real draw here comes from the casting of Willem Dafoe as van Gogh. He was born for this role. Sisters Movie House

MIRAI: A Japanese animated film from the

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY: The biopic fol-

THE NUN: A part of the “Conjuring” Cinematic Universe,” this tells the story of a haunted Romanian nunnery and the heroes that try to re-consecrate the grounds. Surprisingly creepy, “The Nun” is another solid entry in the remarkably entertaining franchise. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

lowing the rise of Queen and the life of Freddie Mercury. At times wild entertaining and ridiculously simplistic, the film still has a magnetic central performance from Rami Malek to carry it through the rough patches. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

CREED II: While “Creed II” doesn’t quite have the power of its predecessor, the film is still a surprisingly emotionally deft portrayal of the personal weight we put on our children. A very good movie on its own, with or without the added history with “Rocky.” Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

DR. SEUSS’ THE GRINCH: Introducing The Grinch to an entirely new generation, this version features the voices of Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones and Angela freaking Lansbury! It can’t be worse than the Jim Carrey one, can it? No one is that cruel. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD: The relationship between

Dumbledore and Grindelwald is the real meat of this period in the history of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. Yet somehow, we’re still stuck with the lamest character Rowling has ever dreamed up: Newt Scamander. Still, it’s worth checking out as the mythology is quite fascinating. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE FRONT RUNNER: Man-with-a-pornoname Hugh Jackman plays Gary Hart, the front runner for the 1988 Democratic presidential election. A bitterly acidic drama that finds plenty of current-day political parallels to play with. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House GREEN BOOK: A well intentioned but tone-

deaf look at friendship and racism in the 1950s. While the movie isn’t terrible, there are too many missed opportunities to give the movie a pass. See full review on p 35. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

Caring for your pets 7 days a week / Urgent Care

INSTANT FAMILY: Nothing about this movie focused on a white couple adopting three Latinx kids should work, but it really does. Heartwarming, brutally honest and lovely, “Instant Family” is a surprise joy. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema MARIA BY CALLAS: A documentary focused on the opera singer Maria Callas. With never before seen footage of the grand dame of opera, this should be of interest to the novice and expert alike. Tin Pan Theater

director of “The Girl Who Leapt Though Time” and one of the finest animated films from overseas since “Howl’s Moving Castle.” This should be unmissable for anyone interested in Anime. Sisters Movie House

THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS: Disney loves a live action remake, and

this is no different other than featuring Helen Mirren, Keira Knightly and Morgan Freeman. A good one for the kids. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE POSSESSION OF HANNAH GRACE: Somehow this sad excuse for a horror film got a wide release even though it should have been a direct-to-Redbox release. All the scary moments are almost instantly sabotaged by inept direction and a shoddy script. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET: Sarah

Silverman and John C. Reilly are both back playing the roles they were born for as video game characters unhappy with their strictly programmed routines. The original was a lovely surprise, so here’s hoping Disney can find a way to make lightning strike twice. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

ROBIN HOOD: Another safe adaptation of the

folk tale from the 13th century. The cast is game, but the script is too afraid of straying far from the stories we already know. A lackluster entry into the legend’s legacy. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

A STAR IS BORN: Lady Gaga and Bradley

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

WIDOWS: A surprisingly powerful crime thriller

about the widows of a group of dead robbers who team up to finish one final job. With stellar performances from Viola Davis, Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Debicki, Colin Farrell and a dozen other excellent character actors, “Widows” is the first truly “thrilling” thriller of the year. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

WILDLIFE: The directorial debut of actor Paul Dano features career best work from Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan picks apart the threads of an unravelling family. When the husband loses his job, he becomes obsessed with volunteering to help fight a fire, blissfully unaware of his own family going up in smoke. Tin Pan Theater, Sisters Movie House

Chaos Walking 3/1 With a script from certifiable genius Charlie Kaufman, “Chaos Walking” is my most-anticipated release of next year. Based on the series of books about a world where all the women have vanished and all the animals talk, this should be a complicated and emotionally crackling fantasy thriller.

"Green Book" gets a black mark By Jared Rasic

T

hey say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. If that’s the case, “Green Book” is all up in that infrastructure. The film pokes its head out like a groundhog, so harmless, looking to the audience for approval without stopping to think if it has anything to say. “Green Book” wants to please every single white liberal baby boomer in its auditoriums, happy to preach to a choir as long as everyone is smiling. Sadly, that smile is painted on the facade of what is surely an interesting true-life story about an unlikely friendship in a time of bigotry and hatred. Viggo Mortensen plays Tony Lip, an Italian-American bouncer from the Bronx. When his working situation dries up, Tony takes a job driving and protecting Dr. Don Shirley (a masterclass in control from Mahershala Ali), a classically trained pianist heading out on a concert tour of the deep South. Tony starts off as the kind of guy

who sees a pair of African-American workmen using his drinking glasses and shoos them away. But the film can’t wait to soft-pedal his racism by saying that he mostly just acted racist around his cartoonishly Italian family. By 30 minutes into the movie, he’s devoted to Shirley and they are fast friends. Ali and Mortensen play beautifully off of one another and that manages to keep the movie moving along the typical Oscar bait-y path all these movies take. There are no real surprises, but the formulaic script still can’t suppress the lovely work from the two leads. Where the film completely falls apart for me isn’t in the story itself, but in the way that it’s told. The fact that this is another white savior narrative isn’t even the most offensive part of the film. What really came across as completely tone deaf to me was the fact that the story is told from Lip’s point of view. Lip is a great character, but this is Shirley’s

Let me guess…something racist is about to happen.

story. He’s the one who has made a conscious choice to tour a section of the country he won’t be welcome in. It’s Shirley who has the interesting story to tell, so to tell it from the point of view of the white driver seems asinine. There are so many different moments of white people taking a beat and then deciding whether to be racist or not that it becomes a running joke. The film doesn’t want me to applaud the bravery of Shirley or the friendship of the two men, but instead presents several moments where we’re supposed to be overjoyed that people in the South decided NOT to be racist. Oh great, you acted like people. Gold star.

Modern audiences don’t need movies normalizing racism while treating the repentant racist like the hero of the tale. “Green Book” is a story of friendship, sure, but Shirley is the remarkable person here, not Lip and his decision to step into the 20th Century. Telling black stories from a white perspective seems like a bad choice, no matter how good the intentions. Green Book

I

’ve been writing about movies since I was a kid, reviewing them professionally for over a decade. Even after all these years, when I look at the slate of new films in an upcoming year, I still get just as excited as I always have. Sure, it’s easy to be cynical about a new “Transformers” movie or one of the other two dozen sequels or remakes we’ll get in a given year, but there will also be a handful of new classics that revitalize the art form of cinema again. This year has included a few alltime greats (check out my Best Films of 2018 list in the coming weeks), but 2019 looks like it has the potential to be a banner year at the theater. Here’s a brief look at a few upcoming releases that have me entirely too excited for the new year.

Pro File: Graham Zimmerman

Nicest local guy slaying big mountain routes worldwide By David Sword

Recently, Zimmerman and climbing partner Chris Wright (also from Bend) were successful at creating a new route on Mount MacDonald, a route that had never seen a successful ascent. He has climbed new routes in the Pakistani Karakoram, Alaska and the Canadian Rockies, shot films on the volcanoes of the Atacama desert, and has run complex logistics in the wilds of Ethiopia. As a film-maker, he’s worked with organizations including REI, Outdoor Research and Outside TV. As an alpinist, he’s won prestigious awards in New Zealand and the U.S. for first ascents on four continents. Born in New Zealand, Zimmerman has a degree in geography from Otago University. Now based in Bend, he lives a life focused on creativity, inspiration, precision and adventure. Adventure was something instilled in Zimmermann from an early age. “My parents became pregnant with me while living in Kansas and made a bold

decision to move to New Zealand. That singular move, that one audacious decision to pack up and move their lives, was a precursor and a foundation for adventure in my life,” he says proudly. Working as a snowboard instructor in Washington during his teenage years, Zimmerman quickly took to the outdoors. “Nature shows us the consequences of our actions. Mountaineering started to be more attractive and I summited Mt. Adams with my Dad and did my first snowboard descent. It was my first big-mountain adventure,” he says. Under the direction of his parents, he joined the Adventure Club and took a course in mountaineering. “My parents wanted to make sure I would have some level of institutional learning. After the mountaineering course, my parents thought that would be the last of my climbing desires,” he says sheepishly. “But that obviously backfired.” Becoming a professional climber is not an easy task; remaining one even more difficult. “After completing my first big, new route in Alaska (Mt. Bradley) I showed up to Outdoor Retailer Show thinking that I had made it—that I would now be a pro climber and my life would be set,” he remembers. “I left the show with a free pair of socks, a serious hangover and a negative bank account,” says Zimmerman. “I learned that in order to be successful I would have to market and document my climbs and create inspiration in a way that make companies want to buy into my adventures,” he says. He created Bedrock Films as a way to develop his personal brand and to inspire others. “My drive as a content creator

Pro Alpinist Graham Zimmerman has a host of ascents under his belt—including a recent first ascent in the Canadian Rockies.

is solely focused on the power of the mountains, the importance of being a steward of the land and of nature, and to share with others what inspires me.” Recently returning from the Canadian Rockies, Zimmerman and partner Chris Wright (also from Bend) were successful at creating a new route on Mount MacDonald, a route that had never seen a successful ascent because of conditions, weather and logistical issues around overnight use in the area. Much of the area surrounding Mount MacDonald is closed during fall and winter because of avalanche control. Once in a blue moon, the perfect conditions exist. Although alpinists from all over the world had looked at the route for years, the stars had never quite aligned. With patience, vigilance and a healthy dose of luck, the Bend team cleared their schedules, drive to Canada

and successfully forged a new route; a coveted first ascent. “We all find inspiration in different places. For me, it is in the mountains,” says Zimmerman. “The wild hills of the world create a deep desire inside of me to be a stronger, smarter human, a more thoughtful man, a better partner (both in climbing and to my lady, Shannon) and a positive contributor to society,” he waxes. “Last summer I was in the Pakistan Karakoram attempting an unclimbed 7,000-meter peak. For most, this would bring to mind images of standing on high icy rock outcrops, looking out over infinite expanses of mountains. Quite to the contrary, this (trip) it meant sitting in base camp waiting out weeks of hot, bad weather,” he laments. “This, in turn, provided something I often don’t have in my life these days: time. Time to evaluate my life, time to consider how I was influencing the world around me and time to ponder my inspirations,” he says. Pro Insights: Guilty Pleasure: “I love the West Wing but don’t feel guilty about it. I am a sugar guy. As a professional athlete I have to eliminate it most of the time. But when I am between projects or any time I can justify it, I crave red licorice, brownies, Reese’s peanut butter cups, donuts… mmmm, donuts.” “I never leave home without a sleeping mask. Being well rested is one of the ways that I can be on point, in business and climbing in life. Sleep is the key. I can’t always sleep while out and about, but when I can, I sleep hard. Oh, and a toothbrush.”

The Notorious Nest-Stealers

By Keely Damara

Jill Rosell

A tale of the great horned owl, part 1 By Jim Anderson

…not one of our native owls go to the trouble — that most birds do — to create a substrate we call a “nest.” If there’s a female within hearing distance — and he knows there is, since he’d never waste his time — she’ll return his, “Hey, honey, let’s get together,” with a high pitched, hoot-hoot-ha, which can be loosely translated to, “You betcha sweetie pie.” The courtship is underway. My wife Sue and I, camped out on a late winter eagle survey, recently had the pleasure of listening to this lovely love song duet for an entire evening. Each time we’d wake up, the two love birds would have moved closer and closer. Then, as the sun began to break up the darkness in the east, the two were perched right next to each other, hooting harmoniously and probably grinning at each other. Yeah, I’m romanticizing their calls a little, but when they’re right overhead and it’s a cold night and you’re cuddled up with your wife in a nice warm

sleeping bag, well, what do ya’ expect? Why these owls put such significance on this season of the year to mate up and begin making their choice for a location to nest is completely out of my bailiwick. All I know is not one of our native owls go to the trouble — that most birds do — to create a substrate we call a “nest.” All the small owls—including the Western screech, flammulated, Northern pygmy and Northern saw-whet— take woodpecker cavities and/or man-made nesting boxes to nest in. They don’t carry sticks, grasses or any nest-making materials with which to help make these cavities into a nest; they depend on what the woodpeckers and other cavity-nesters (and users) have left behind. By the same token, all the larger owls, including the great horned, great gray, long-eared, short-eared, spotted (and now barred) owls use other bird nests or none at all. For example, shorteared and burrowing owls are ground nesters. The short-eared is on the surface, but the burrowing uses old underground animal dens, like that of the American badger. The largest owl nesting in Oregon is the great gray owl, which uses broken-off tops of big trees, such as Doug Fir, White Fir, Noble Fir, cedars and pines. Yes, just plain broken-off tops— no nesting material, just eggs laid on bare wood. Their young grow so fast they usually become too big to all stay in the nest for long, so they either fall —or are pushed — out. However, they have enlarged feet and leg muscles which provide them

the equipment to climb the “jackstraw” understory where they spend the rest of their early weeks being fed by parents as they grow flight feathers. The great horned owl uses (as in, sometimes “steals”) nests from bigger raptors, such as soaring hawks and eagles. Stealing a nest from a golden eagle usually doesn’t work, however. The owls get started nesting very early in spring, which in some areas is mid-winter. The eagles don’t begin nesting until late February, which is bad news for the owls! While checking eagle nests in March, my wife, Sue and I have found adult and juvenile owl feathers and bones in eagle pellets, meaning that nest-stealing didn’t end so well. Stay tuned for part two of this story next week!

Holiday Lights Paddle Parade

Bend tradition brings holiday cheer

T

he ever-popular Holiday Lights Paddle Parade returns to the Old Mill District this weekend — featuring paddleboards, kayaks and canoes all dolled up in festive Christmas decorations and lights. Last year, boats and boards decorated in holiday garb floated through the Old Mill District while lighting up the Deschutes River. The event, nearly 20 years strong, is a Bend tradition that celebrates the holidays while showing some local love for the Deschutes River. Anyone with a paddleboard, kayak or canoe is welcome to participate. Paddlers should meet at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe from 2-3:30pm Fri., Dec. 14 ready to decorate with lights, materials and crafty ideas. The river will be cold, so it may behoove paddlers to wear a dry suit under their ugly Christmas sweaters or costumes in case of an accidental spill. Spectators can expect to see a parade of lights between 4:15-6pm. If you’re wondering where to post up to watch the parade, Source contributor and Tumalo Creek employee K.M. Collins suggests the east bank of the Deschutes River, south of Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe, upriver from the flag bridge. After the parade, meet back at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe for warm beverages.  Holiday Lights Paddle Parade

ell, it’s that time of year (again). If you’re fortunate enough to have a home close to the same habitat great horned owls need to make a living, you’re also hearing them now as they cuddle up and sing love songs to each other. The owls usually begin their courtship in November, about a football field apart, the male beginning his love song with a soft but meaningful deep, searching, four-part hoot-hoot-ta-hoot-ahhhh, roughly translated as, “Here I am you lucky sweeties.” That can go on way into the end of December and into February.

ccording to November 2018 Central Oregon MLS statistics for Bend single family residences (excluding condos and manufactured homes) on 1 acre or less, the market cooled down again, with sales volume decreasing by 17 percent from November 2017. The median price increased slightly from $432,900 in October 2018 to $433,143 for November 2018.

Sales of homes under $500,000 for November 2018 represented 62 percent of total sales as compared to 73 percent for November 2017, partially reflecting the rise in prices along with inventory shortages. One piece of good news is that mortgage rates have been falling, and at press time were at 4.75 percent. Hopefully this will bring some help to current home buyers.

Well, according to some research, married people do live longer. However, that’s sometimes just because they were unsuccessful at killing each other. There’s this notion that your life is pretty much a black chasm of nothingness if you’re without a “significant other.” Psychologist Bella DePaulo blames this thinking on what she calls “the cult of the couple.” DePaulo, who researches the elements of being satisfyingly single, marvels at “the strange implication” (in a paper by noted marriage researchers) “that people without a stable sexual relationship are wandering adrift with open wounds and shivering in their sleep.” Though we humans evolved to be interdependent—people who need people—we don’t have to be sleeping with those people on the reg for them to count. In fact, having good friends and close acquaintances you can rely on is associated with a whole bunch of physical and mental health benefits, including better cardiovascular health, increased happiness, and decreased stress and depression. Interestingly, research increasingly suggests that providing social support may be even better for you than getting it—psychologically and physically. A study co-authored by psychiatrist Randolph Nesse on elderly people who regularly did generous acts for others in their lives is one of a number that find an association between being a “giver” and increased life expectancy. Conversely, Nesse theorizes that the rising tide of depression in our society has roots in how disconnected many of us are, leading to a deficit in the level of kindness we evolved to give and receive. Well, you’re set up perfectly to extend yourself for others—like by handing them a plate of your gourmet chow. Consider using your newfound love of cooking to bring a social circle together around your dining room table. Invite friends over every Friday or so to dine or even help you make dinner. The cool thing is, before they arrive, nothing’s stopping you from whispering the same seductive thing you would to a woman: “So...

what are you wearing?” The turkey: “The same little paper socks you put on me an hour ago, stupid.”

From Adhere To Eternity I’m a 42-year-old woman, and I’ve been dating the guy in the town house next door for two years. I love him, and I’d like to get married, but he has always taken me for granted. My friends say I’m too available. Yes, I’m always there for him, always picking up the phone or texting back right away, etc. Why is this a bad thing? I’m loyal and caring. Also, I’m not sure how I could be less “available” when he lives next door. Amy Alkon —Undervalued Being neighbors is so convenient: “Hi... could I just borrow your stepladder until tomorrow and your vagina for, like, an hour?” Unfortunately, being ready, willing, available and conveniently located is not exactly the launchpad to romantic longing. Consider that the restaurant everybody wants to go to is the one where getting a table requires Hollywood connections plus selling two-thirds of your soul to bribe the maitre d’. The food there might not be substantially better than that of the bistro up the street. But exclusivity—how tough it is to book a table—elevates the apparent value of a place. There’s a related concept in relationships, “the principle of least interest.” The term was coined in the 1930s by a sociologist, Willard Waller, and it describes how the person who has the least interest in continuing a relationship has the most power over it. (Modern research by sociologist Susan Sprecher supports Waller’s theory.) Sadly, your boyfriend most likely has a set opinion of your value, so your chances of getting more appreciation from him are probably blown. Still, it’s important to note that in a relationship, you don’t have to keep up the “least interest” gambit forever; you should just hold off on being full-on loyal and caring till you have somebody who’s inspired to do that for you, too. Ultimately, it’s important to work on yourself so you’ll be “hard to get.” But before you get to that point, you can act “as if”— like by setting an alarm for four hours and returning texts then instead of 8.6 seconds after they hit your phone. It’s sure to be seriously difficult at first. But you could probably get into a balanced, loving relationship if you’d just adhere to “the principle of least interest”: We pine for what’s slightly out of reach, not what’s all over us like an oil spill.

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 1140, two dynasties were at war in Weinsberg, in what’s now southern Germany. Conrad III, leader of the Hohenstaufen dynasty, laid siege to the castle at Weinsberg, headquarters of the rival Welfs dynasty. Things went badly for the Welfs, and just before Conrad launched a final attack, they surrendered. With a last-minute touch of mercy, Conrad agreed to allow the women of the castle to flee in safety along with whatever possessions they could carry. The women had an ingenious response. They lifted their husbands onto their backs and hauled them away to freedom. Conrad tolerated the trick, saying he would stand by his promise. I foresee a metaphorically comparable opportunity arising for you, Aquarius. It won’t be a life-or-death situation like that of the Welfs, but it will resemble it in that your original thinking can lead you and yours to greater freedom. PISCES 19-March

20):

(Feb.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): In 1930, some British mystery writers formed a club to provide each other with artistic support and conviviality. They swore an oath to write their stories so that solving crimes happened solely through the wits of their fictional detectives, and not through “Divine Revelation, Feminine Intuition, Mumbo Jumbo, Jiggery-Pokery, or Act of God.” I understand that principle, but don’t endorse it for your use in the coming weeks. On the contrary. I hope you’ll be on the alert and receptive to Divine Revelations, Feminine Intuition, Mumbo Jumbo, Jiggery-Pokery, and Acts of God.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When you’re prescribed antibiotic pills to fight off infection, you should finish the entire round. If you stop taking the meds partway through because you’re feeling better, you might enable a stronger version of the original infector to get a foothold in your system. This lesson provides an apt metaphor for a process you’re now undergoing. As you seek to purge a certain unhelpful presence in your life, you must follow through to the end. Don’t get lax halfway through. Keep on cleansing yourself and shedding the unwanted influence beyond the time you’re sure you’re free of it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Danish scientist and poet Piet Hein wrote this melancholy meditation: “Losing one glove is painful, but nothing compared to the pain of losing one, throwing away the other, and finding the first one again.” Let his words serve as a helpful warning to you, Gemini. If you lose one of your gloves, don’t immediately get rid of the second. Rather, be patient and await the eventual reappearance of the first. The same principle applies to other things that might temporarily go missing. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancerian author Elizabeth Gilbert is a soulful observer whose prose

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): More than three centuries ago, Dutch immigrants in New York ate a dessert known as the olykoek , or oily cake: sugar-sweetened dough deep-fried in pig fat. It was the forerunner of the modern doughnut. One problem with the otherwise delectable snack was that the center wasn’t always fully cooked. In 1847, a man named Hanson Gregory finally found a solution. Using a pepper shaker, he punched a hole in the middle of the dough, thus launching the shape that has endured until today. I bring this to your attention because I suspect you’re at a comparable turning point. If all goes according to cosmic plan, you will discover a key innovation that makes a pretty good thing even better. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I can’t believe I’m going to quote pop star Selena Gomez. But according to my analysis of the current astrological omens, her simple, homespun advice could be especially helpful to you in the coming weeks. “Never look back,” she says. “If Cinderella had looked back and picked up the shoe, she would have never found her prince.” Just to be clear, Virgo, I’m not saying you’ll experience an adventure that has a plot akin to the Cinderella fairy tale. But I do expect you will benefit from a “loss” as long as you’re focused on what’s ahead of you rather than what’s behind you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Among the pieces of jewelry worn by superstar Elvis Presley were a Christian cross and a Star of David. “I don’t want to miss out on heaven due to a technicality,” he testified. In that spirit, and in accordance with astrological omens, I urge you, too, to cover all your bases in the coming weeks. Honor your important influences. Be extra nice to everyone who might have something to offer you in the future. Show your appreciation for those who have helped make you who you are. And be as open-minded and welcoming and multicultural as you can genuinely be. Your motto is “Embrace the rainbow.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Are you a gambling addict seeking power over your addiction? If you live in Michigan or Illinois, you can formally blacklist yourself from all casinos. Anytime your resolve wanes and you wander into a casino, you can be arrested and fined for trespassing. I invite you to consider a comparable approach as you work to free yourself from a bad habit or debilitating obsession. Enlist some help in enforcing your desire to refrain. Create an obstruction that will interfere with your ability to act on negative impulses.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?” Author John Green asked that question. I confess that I’m not entirely comfortable with it. It’s a bit pushy. I find I’m more likely to do remarkable things if I’m not trying too hard to do remarkable things. Nevertheless, I offer it as one of your key themes for 2019. I suspect you will be so naturally inclined to do remarkable things that you won’t feel pressure to do so. Here’s my only advice: up the ante on your desire to be fully yourself; dream up new ways to give your most important gifts; explore all the possibilities of how you can express your soul’s code with vigor and rigor.

The National Center for Biotechnology Information reported on a 15-yearold boy who had the notion that he could make himself into a superhero. First he arranged to get bitten by many spiders in the hope of acquiring the powers of Spiderman. That didn’t work. Next, he injected mercury into his skin, theorizing it might give him talents comparable to the Marvel Comics mutant character named Mercury. As you strategize to build your power and clout in 2019, Pisces, I trust you won’t resort to questionable methods like those. You won’t need to! Your intuition should steadily guide you, providing precise information on how to proceed. And it all starts now.

entertains and illuminates me. She’s well aware of her own limitations, however. For example, she writes, “Every few years, I think, ‘Maybe now I’m finally smart enough or sophisticated enough to understand Ulysses. So I pick it up and try it again. And by page 10, as always, I’m like, ‘What the hell?’” Gilbert is referring to the renowned 20th-century novel, James Joyce’s masterwork. She just can’t appreciate it. I propose that you make her your inspirational role model in the coming weeks. Now is a favorable time to acknowledge and accept that there are certain good influences and interesting things that you will simply never be able to benefit from. And that’s OK!

VOLUME 22  ISSUE 50  /  DECEMBER 13, 2018  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the fairy tale “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” the heroine rejects both the options that are too puny and too excessive. She wisely decides that just enough is exactly right. I think she’s a good role model for you. After your time of feeling somewhat deprived, it would be understandable if you were tempted to crave too much and ask for too much and grab too much. It would be understandable, yes, but mistaken. For now, just enough is exactly right.

High Returns: Investing in Cannabis Stocks By Josh Jardine

WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / DECEMBER 13, 2018 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

46

P

eople frequently ask me about investing in cannabis stock. My response is on par with asking a dog their take on the intricacies of German biodynamic farming: near zero comprehension, evidenced by a tilting of the head and possibly licking the face of the person asking the question. (This ensures I am only ever asked such advice once.) This isn’t to say I don’t understand how stocks work, but it also isn’t to say that I have a full and complete grasp of turbulent cannabis stock markets either. If I did, do you think I would continue to toil away, cranking out this column? Investing requires allocating a portion of income that, if lost, won’t negatively impact the investor. Few in the independent newspaper industry meet that criteria. But for those of you who have made better career choices and do have greater resources, it can certainly seem that investing and growing your money with the people growing weed is all the rage. This theory is supported by the vast number of not-at-all-maddening online ads that pop up screaming “Investing in this cannabis stock is like buying Amazon at $1.80 per share!” Great, because my investment fund this month is exactly $1.80, once I return these cans!

Some info:

The Cannabis market is growing— fast: Per Investopedia, “Global spending on legal cannabis is expected to grow 230 percent to $32 billion in 2020 as compared to $9.5 (billion) in 2017, according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics. The research projects a majority of that, nearly $23.4 billion will come from the United States.” They add, “As of June 29, 2018 the United States Marijuana Index, despite a lot of uncertainty around regulations, has over the past 1 year gained 71.49 percent, as compared to about 12 percent gain seen by the S&P 500.” But cannabis is still illegal: Although 10 states and the District of Columbia have recreational cannabis programs, and 33 states have medical cannabis programs, the feds haven’t de/rescheduled cannabis. As far as they’re concerned, it’s still the devil’s lettuce—meaning that

cannabis grown in one state must remain in that state, full service banking for the industry is still virtually unobtainable and rules and regulations add both hassle and tremendous costs to producers. No other commodity listed on the stock exchanges has those burdens. Cannabis Companies are now U.S. traded: This year saw the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ both listing cannabis stocks for the first time. Numerous cannabis “penny stocks” are traded on Over The Counter (OTC) markets. OTC stocks have disclosures and filing requirements that are far less stringent than other markets. That isn’t an indictment of their legitimacy, but without more detailed investor information and disclosure of stocks found on other exchanges, the risks are higher. But don’t forget Canada!: The two Canadian stock exchanges, including the larger Toronto Stock Exchange and the Canadian Securities Exchange, list cannabis companies, both Canadian and U.S.-based. The combined valuation of cannabis stocks listed on TSX exceeds $20 billion, while the CSE has approximately 60 cannabis stocks, many U.S. based, with a combined valuation of those U.S. stocks of $230 million. Cannabis stocks aren’t just for growers: There are three main types of cannabis stocks: companies which grow cannabis, biotechs developing cannabis-derived drugs and ancillary services and products such as growing and product management systems. If the idea of investing in the businesses growing cannabis sounds too risky, consider companies which are hands-off the growing itself. Be careful: Ontario-based cannabis-producing company Aphria is a powerhouse—third in size based on production, and fourth-largest in terms of market value. It was a recommended “buy” until recently, when a short sellers report by Quintessential Capital Management and Hindenburg Research sent the stock plunging 25 percent in one day on accusations of recently acquired assets being controlled by “insiders” and “largely worthless.” Do your homework before investing in anything.
