n April, my dog Zuzu died. Yes, it is sad, but it is also part of, well, a dog’s life. In fact, the first night I brought Zuzu home—a black and white spotted American bulldog—I had a dream that she was run over by a train and I had to weld her back together. For 12 and half years, I worried about her, took care of her, and kept her healthy and alive. And, for all but a few weeks of her life, she was extremely happy. Until a few years ago, I ended each summer by swimming across a lake with her. Although not built as a swimmer, she’d plow through the water; if I let her, she would stay in the water all day, paddling around like a determined hippopotamus. She loved the water and went everywhere with me—chasing up and down the beach, and snapping her jaws at the waves when I surfed; barking at each turn when I waterskied; although I stopped taking Zuzu canoeing because she’d bounce from side to side looking for fish, and at 100 pounds of solid muscle, twice tipped us. In her later years, though, she slowed down. It is strange to watch your friend age faster than yourself, to move through puppyhood into adulthood and, finally, old age. In 2012, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She was treated with experimental radiation and bounced back, although her bark was hollowed out and, oddly something the vets never explained, she no longer liked swimming. She would wade gingerly into the water, but never let her paws leave the ground. When Zuzu collapsed on my front steps two months ago, I knew that was the end. She was put to sleep two days later. Gone? Yes. But really, a pet is always part of your life.

Submission does not guarantee publication. Letter of the week receives $5 to Palate! street. The streets were clear. A recent article in the New York Times on Mr. Hincape said, “Though racing teams typically don’t make money, the Hincappie team’s successes have increased visibility for the brand and that spurs sales for Hincappie sportswear.” So, the disturbance on my street was for Bend to support increased bicycling sportswear. I suspect there is really very little in the CCC for the citizens of Bend as the participants do not stay in motels/hotels, they do not spend in restaurants and nobody pays anything to see them. Their conduct off the bike is unwelcome. Other than the downtown criterion, who sees the race? Perhaps most telling is a recent picture in the Bulletin of a women’s stage finish in which there is one spectator. Let’s reexamine how this event is conducted, why we allow such unrestricted city parking, and what we get from it. —David Parish RESTRAIN BPRD We agree passionately with letters in The Source appalled by the play wave construction. Here we are in this incredible natural environment already struggling to survive population growth while Bend Park and Recreation District seems hell-bent on turning our community into a Disney amusement park. Yes, they have done a fine job on our human and dog parks, but it seems they don’t know when to stop. If we don’t make our voices heard, we may find Mickey and Goofy selling tickets for the Magic Mountain ride in Drake Park. Destroying our natural environment is not progress, it’s simply greed. You do know that “they paved paradise and put in a parking lot” was based on a real event, right? Call BPRD at 541-389-7275 and ask to leave your message for all members of Board of Directors. —Mac Simon and Vicki Grant IN REPLY TO “SESSION’S OUT FOR SUMMER” (7/22) Stay away from the top-tier issues that, in his view, are at a “higher pay grade.” Sounds like someone who really needs a lot more experience at governing before running for Governor, a job that actually requires governing on those top-tier issues. —mickey finn via IN REPLY TO “OPINION: BULLETIN EDITORIAL IGNORES THE FACTS ABOUT TRANSGENDER YOUTH” (7/17) Great piece. I was going to say “opinion



piece,” but this isn’t opinion: it’s fact. You’ve effectively rebutted all the Bulletin’s lies, innuendo, and insinuations and in the process exposed them, again, as the small-minded, insecure, unthinking assholes that they are. Cheers. —Peter G. via WATER, WATER…NOT EVERYWHERE! I love you guys, but was disappointed to find that in your recent watersports issue, there was not a single mention, or more importantly, a counter-article that I could find that addressed or noted the concerning drought cycle and reduced snowpack that directly impacts these reservoirs glorified for recreation. To me, it seems glaringly obvious that these man-made features and our strained water resources will become (ARE) increasingly precious...water that seems to not be viewed as exhaustible as it supports burgeoning development and seemingly unmitigated, shortsighted infrastructure. (Fake Lake, anyone?) Layered on top of the agriculture industry that predated the recreational population boom, Bend and Central Oregon may be outgrowing their arid britches on the east side sooner than we think. I hope we can learn and apply lessons learned from the big state just south of our border—a place comprised of mainly desert before it was engineered for agriculture— almost entirely reliant on snowpack recharge to its reservoirs to feed the hungry... er...”man” in the name of progress. Now, many of those millions of acres lay parched,

Grapes of Wrath style...below bare peaks and reservoirs tens-of-percent below their lowest levels. We are fortunate to still have water to enjoy, but let’s please promote efficiency and conservation alongside our good fortune to benefit from Mother Nature’s gift of water. —Alyce Pearce

A DOWNSIDE TO THE CCC Although the Cascade Cycling Classic (CCC) may be considered a plus for Bend, I recently experienced the downside of this event. Apparently in signing up to host riders, an inconsiderate neighbor across from me agreed to also host an RV. Their drive is 45 degrees and short so they essentially volunteered the curved street in front of their house—not theirs to offer, but the CCC doesn’t check. Our neighborhood in the West Hills is composed of rather narrow, hilly, curbed streets on the SW side of Aubrey Butte. No pulloffs. I awoke the Saturday before the race was to start to find not only a behemoth RV parked on a curve in front of MY house, but it was towing a 15foot trailer, headed in the wrong direction with a popout window extending into the street. When I asked them to move, I got a mumbled answer that the owner would be back and was soon visited by the host who said she would not ask them to move. A call to the Bend police and coaxing in their callback resulted in them coming to the scene and asking the vehicles to park correctly and retract the popout. During that visit, I was told by the police officer that it is legal to leave an RV on the street for a week. When this news gets out, Bend will become Winnabago heaven—who needs RV parks when you can just park on the street! The transformer that is the George Hincapie race team soon transformed with a canopy extension in back of the trailer, bike work stations, coolers in the street, another 15-foot van and about three race support cars—all parked along our residential street. During the day, the activity spread across the width of the street with equipment, bikes and the washing of vehicles completely blocking both lanes of travel requiring a wait until they were finished. At night they would block the street by racing radio-controlled cars. In general, they showed no regard for the neighborhood or its residents, but rather did what they wanted—on the street the CCC organization and the Bend police granted them. So much for the city [and] its residents. Although I am the recipient of a irresponsible neighbor’s action, the CCC and the antiquated Bend traffic code must share the blame. The CCC must inquire whether an RV host can host on their property or not. If not, the CCC does not have the right to allocate Bend streets for parking. I came to Bend from a community where 72 hours was the limit for anything parked on the

Saturday, August 1 11am-8pm Sunday, August 2 11am-6pm

Last week, like most weeks during the summer in Bend, thousands of tourists poured into town. There were the Phish shows; two nights that pulled thousands of fans from across the Northwest to Les Schwab Amphitheater. And, there was the Cascade Cycling Classic, a five-stage road bike race that attracted a different crowd; hundreds of top-level cyclists and legions of wine-sipping spectators. What those events had in common is that they generated tens of thousands of dollars for private business-owners. (As a rough estimate, studies place the amount that each individual tourist spends on lodging, food, tour guides, etc. around $200 daily.) Yes, Bend is doing a remarkable job organizing and hosting events—events that draw tens of thousands to our city and create a robust revenue flow for our local businesses. With an increased number of shows, including Phish and Willie Nelson, this is perhaps the best summer season for Les Schwab Amphitheater ever. The Cascade Lakes Relay this weekend (see Outside, page 35) will draw thousands of runners this weekend, and a growing number of beer festivals keep a constant flow of tourists here, not to mention the everyday charms, from mountain biking to skiing. Yes, Bend is a destination spot. But, there is some saying about not paying for the cow when the milk is free that seems relevant for the public services here. By not implementing a gas tax and without implementing a restaurant tax—both taxes that rightfully charge users, not the general population, for the amenities in our city—the City is leaving millions on the table, and in the pockets of tourists, as opposed to having them pay for their use of our roads, sidewalks, and public infrastructure. A year ago, voters in Bend wisely approved a small increase to the Transient Room Tax, a 10.4 percent tax charged to lodgers. That increase has generated funds to help support firefighters and to pay for marketing for cultural events in order to bring more revenue to Bend. It is a smart, self-sustaining tax, and one that wisely leverages tourism as a means to pay for public services. But there are more salient opportunities that are being missed—and, in the process, placing the responsibility for paying for crumbling infrastructure on residents rather than on tourists. Front and center is implementing a gas tax. City Council is currently considering putting a per gallon gas tax to pay for much-needed road repairs on the ballot—and, we agree that this is the best and wisest way to connect use with maintenance. In News this week (page 7), Mayor Jim Clinton explains that “no tax has a better connection between the users of the roads and the money needed to maintain the pavement.” He adds, “There are no good arguments against a fuel tax to fund road maintenance.” There is no real viable debate that the roads do not need repair (again, see, News, page 7, in which reports and public surveys are discussed). To simply improve current road conditions from “poor” to “good” will require $5 million each year for the next five years. One option— that Mayor Clinton and we favor—is to implement a 10 cent per gallon tax. If not that, City Council will need to consider other options, like squeezing more money from the general fund (and, most likely, in the process forcing layoffs for police and fire) or a utility fee—the later of which would be an additional charge on all water and sewer bills, with those funds earmarked for transportation improvements; and which, most notably, would place the funding responsibility on road repairs on homeowners and renters rather than sharing that burden with tourists. It is likely that City Council will make a decision on August 5 whether to place the gas tax on the November ballot. We hope that they do.



Pounding the Pavement

City considers a gas tax to fund transportation improvements BY ERIN ROOK


Gov. Kate Brown on Tuesday ordered state agencies to improve their efforts to conserve water. The executive order establishes a goal of reducing water consumption by 15 percent or more at all state-owned facilities by December 31, 2020. Agencies will be required to give a progress report on November 1, 2015, and annually for the next five years. “Water is the foundation for our economies, communities, ecosystems, and quality of life,” Gov. Brown said in a release. “State government’s efforts to address climate change must include reduced consumption and other conservation measures as water shortages become the new normal.”


Driving across Bend is a little like playing Minesweeper, only the potholes don’t explode. So it’s not surprising that, in a recent survey by DHM Research, 61 percent of respondents described road conditions in Bend as “poor” or “very poor.” And data backs up that gut feeling. Because road damage has outpaced funding for repairs, Bend roads currently have a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) of 68, aka “poor.” PCI is a method of measurement developed by the Army Corps of Engineers. And, unless something changes, it will only get worse. “Continuing with the current funding, the PCI will drop by 1 every year and allow the roads to get so bad that repairs will require extremely expensive rebuilds,” explains Mayor Jim Clinton. “Preventing this further degradation will cost $2.5 million per year. $5 million per year will provide sufficient street maintenance to increase PCI by 1 each year so that after five years the roads will be in the mid-70s heading towards ‘good.’” A 5 cent per gallon tax is estimated to generate $2.5 million a year, while a 10 cent per gallon tax is expected to raise twice that. Clinton says he favors the latter to get roads up to “good” condition sooner. “No tax has a better connection between the users of the roads and the money needed to maintain the pavement,” Clinton says. “There are no good arguments against a fuel tax to fund road maintenance.” Still, not everyone is on board. Some argue that the City should re-evaluate its funding priorities before putting a new tax on the ballot. Bend attorney and former mayor Jeff Eager says he is representing a group of seven local fuel business owners who oppose the tax and argue that the City’s budget is growing enough to cover the cost of road improvements and that the tax would harm business by discouraging in-town fuel sales and increasing costs for companies that buy fuel in Bend. He says that funding for street preservation has gone down even as the City’s overall budget has gone up. “The City has budgeted to spend only $1.8 million per year over the next two years on street preservation,” Eager says. “It will receive $4.5 million per year in state gas tax. It will receive an additional $4.5 million per year in general fund revenue over the last budget period. If the City treats street preservation as a budget priority, it does not need to raise taxes.” City Manager Eric King clarified those numbers, explaining that $1.8 million represents only a portion of the City’s $3.5 million budget for street preservation in 2015/2016, specifically the amount dedicated to fully repaving roadways.

Still, local residents, despite their support for a gas tax, echoed that desire to find more street funding in existing coffers, with 54 percent of those surveyed by DHM saying they believe the City has enough money to cover the costs. But Mayor Clinton reiterates that’s not the case, and says Council has been looking into options for funding road improvements for years. “The only way to extract the needed funding from the current revenues is to cut police and or fire, including layoffs. I am not going to do that,” Clinton says. “The Council has considered a transportation utility fee [TUF], which is a charge on all water and sewer bills, and squeezing more money out of the General Fund, the vast majority of which goes to police and fire. We have been squeezing for many years, but the needed money has not been found. I would consider a TUF for sidewalks, but not for road maintenance.” The DHM survey also asked about a transportation utility fee, but it was the least popular funding option of those presented. A gas tax tied with a studded tire fee as most popular, with each selected as the top pick by 29 percent of those surveyed. By comparison, a utility fee got just 5 percent support. Bend 2030 is working to bring together the disparate perspectives and has suggested that any potential vote on a gas tax wait until the City crafts a more complete funding plan. “[We have] worked closely with the Bend Chamber of Commerce, Jeff Eager in his role representing several petroleum companies, The Environmental Center, Commute Options, and the City of Bend to consider whether some sort of compromise package could be nailed down by August 5, when the Council will likely make a decision about putting a gas tax on the November ballot,” explains Bend 2030 Executive Director Erin Foote-Marlowe. But she doesn’t think it’s a realistic time frame to consider all the elements of a comprehensive transportation funding plan. “Bend 2030 believes that a gas tax needs to be just one piece of a comprehensive funding solution to our transportation issues. Other options include pulling revenue from the general fund, a transportation utility fee and even a bike registration fee. How much could we earn from these other revenue streams? What is the fairest way to spread the burden of paying for improvements to the transportation system? How will those other revenues impact the rate of a gas tax?” she asks. “We believe we need to do the homework of answering all these questions before we ask the voters to approve a tax.” If Council does not move forward with a gas tax on the November ballot, it could instead aim for a March special election.

Snowpack in Oregon peaked at its lowest levels in the last 35 years, according to the National Resources Conservation Service, leading to lower than normal streamflows. The Oregon Water Resources Department says statewide precipitation is 88 percent of average. Of Oregon’s 36 counties, 23 have been declared officially in drought by the Governor. This is the seventh time Deschutes County has received a drought declaration in the last 14 years. The most recent declaration was in 2010. Looking to reduce your personal water consumption? The City of Bend is offering free sprinkler inspections to help residents improve the efficiency with which they water their lawns. According to the City, an estimated 60 percent of residential water use goes into landscaping, making sprinklers a key opportunity for conservation. “The drought conditions we’re experiencing in addition to the new utility rate structure that went into effect this month should motivate us all to take another look at how we can reduce our water consumption and get on a more sustainable path,” Mike Buettner, Water Conservation Program Manager for the City of Bend, said in a release. To sign up, visit or call 541-388-5569.  No one likes a dirty river. Fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities to do something about it. On August 8, from 10 am to 1 pm, the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council hosts the annual Stream Stewardship Day. Volunteers will team up to remove invasive weeds, in stream debris, and litter along the banks of the Deschutes. In exchange for their labor, participants will have a chance to learn about water quality, fish habitat, and vegetation in the Upper Deschutes Watershed. For more information, visit

Canine Colleagues Local shop and office dogs share their stories BY ERIN ROOK AND PHOTOS BY COLE DAVIS

This June marked the 17th annual Take Your Dog to Work Day. (By comparison, Take Your Daughter To Work Day started 23 years ago.) In Bend, however, that “holiday” is celebrated every day at some workplaces. While the impulse may be a simple side effect of Central Oregon’s fondness for canine companions, bringing pups to work has proven benefits. According to a 2012 Virginia Commonwealth University study, employees who brought their dogs to work had lower levels of cortisone, a hormone associated with stress. Conducted at a single company, the study found that workers who brought their dog saw an 11 percent decrease in stress over the

course of the day, while their dogless coworkers experienced a 70 percent increase in stress. Whether they know the benefits or not, many wish they could bring their furry friends to work with them. A survey by Wellness Natural Pet Food found that 48 percent of respondents would bring their dog to work if it were permitted. Younger folks were even more inclined—61 percent—to bring their fur children along to the office. Attitudes vary widely on the appropriateness of bringing pets into a professional setting. But no one ever seems to ask the dogs what they think. We chatted with four shop dogs to find out what they like—and loathe—about working with the man.

If You Don’t Know Me By Now


From chart-topping to charities to cooking, Martina McBride is ruling the world BY SARA JANE WILTERMOOD


Country music superstar Martina McBride will bring her famed songs and smile to the Deschutes County Fair on July 30, but will she be serving her refreshing iceberg wedge salad? When you have accomplished as much as McBride has—she’s a three-time Academy of Country Music Top Female Vocalist and four-time Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year (a record shared with Reba McEntire and Miranda Lambert)—there comes a time when a new challenge is needed. Many musicians turn to television or movies, only to get reviews like, “Don’t quit your day job, Elvis.” McBride wisely chose something that she was actually good at—cooking. Her cookbook, Around the Table: Recipes and Inspiration for Gatherings Throughout the Year, was released last October. Not only does it include her mouth-watering recipes for triple chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies and brined-and-braised short ribs, she also shares ideas for every occasion, even playlists. Whether reviewers loved McBride for her music first or not, the reviews were roundly positive, with comments like, “The book was like stepping into Martina’s home

for a party” and “Look out Martha Stewart.” But just putting out a great cookbook last year wasn’t enough for the married mother of three, she also released her 12th studio album, Everlasting, in which she reincarnated R&B and blues classics like Van Morrison’s “Wild Night,” Aretha Franklin’s “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man” and Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes’ “If You Don’t Know Me by Now.” Many critics have praised the cover album, not only for the quality of the performances, but also the choice of songs. The album also features duets with Gavin DeGraw and Kelly Clarkson. That style of remake has fairy-dusted her own classics on her Everlasting tour, like “Independence Day,” which won Video of the Year and Song of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards in the early ’90s when McBride was first starting out. (Interestingly enough, the song didn’t make the top 10 because many radio stations didn’t care for the message the song sent: an abused mother burns the family home to the ground as a way to fight back.) At that time, she was actually touring with Garth Brooks, not as an artist, but selling his memorabilia. And it was Brooks who, impressed by her

enthusiasm, encouraged her to get a recording contract. Also with Everlasting, McBride became the first-ever female artist in the 50-year history of the Top Country Albums chart to debut at No. 1 with an independently released and distributed album. Brooks might just be selling T-shirts for McBride now. Surprisingly enough, it wasn’t until 2003 with the single “This One’s For the Girls” that McBride accomplished a number one hit on the adult contemporary charts, while it only reached number three on the country charts. Also surprisingly, she has been nominated for a Grammy Award 14 times, but never won one. She still has plenty of time though; she just turned the timeless 49 years old this past week, and her classics are still going viral. Last week, a bunch of grade-schoolers in Staten Island, New York, of the PS 22 Chorus, sang McBride’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” to their teacher, Adriana Lopez, who had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. (Grab some Kleenex and check it out on YouTube.) After the video went viral, McBride tweeted, “Music is so powerful and I am blessed to have been given this song. Thanks P22 Chorus and much love to Adriana Lopez.” McBride’s own personal playlist is featured almost every day on Sirius XM’s Y2Kountry, “The Martina McBride Show.” She chooses her very favorite 2000s country tunes, and shares stories of her extensive experience on the country road. McBride is also extremely active in the volunteering world. She is the current spokesperson for the National Domestic Violence Hotline, the National Network to End Domestic Violence, and the Tulsa Domestic Violence and Intervention Services. She has hosted the Middle Tennessee’s YWCA Celebrity Auction every year since 1995, and she partners with Loveisrespect, the national teen dating abuse helpline. She also rallies her fans to follow in her generous footsteps through her group “Team Martina” ( Martina McBride 7 pm, Thursday, July 30 Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center Redmond Free with fair admission ($12)

The Dog Days of Summer BY JOSH GROSS

We’re now officially in that part of year known as “the dog days of summer,” a month or so that runs from July 3-ish to August 11-ish. So we thought we’d celebrate that with a pooch-themed mixtape, featuring tunes like “Love Dog,” from TV on the Radio, “Prehistoric Dog,” from Red Fang, and “Bird Dog,” from The Everly Brothers. We also threw in Dr. Dog, and the original version of “Hound Dog,” by Big Mama Thornton, as well as perhaps the most dog-loving song of all, “Canis Lupis,” by The Aquabats, because, as the song says, “doooooooogs are SWEET!” SCAN THE QR CODE

Tony Smiley, Keez Bend favorite Tony Smiley brings his one man band to the Volcanic Theatre Pub for an evening of electric melodies. As a multi-talented one-man band, Smiley has earned the distinction of a loop ninja, putting other one-man bands to shame, and earning him a cult-like following. Smiley blends rock, hip-hop, tribal fusion, Mongolian throat singing, and beatboxing to create a sound all his own. Prepare for a dance party that’s worth more than the price of admission. 9 pm. Friday, July 31. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5/adv, $7/door.

Tony Furtado, Stephanie Schneiderman Portland-based singer-songwriters Tony Furtado and Stephanie Schneiderman bring their individual musical talents to Bend. Schneiderman opens the evening with her beautiful vocals, which contribute to the electronic pop with folk roots in an amazing way. Furtado headlines with his refined Americana sound. Furtado is known for being engaging onstage and off, as well as one hell of a banjo and slide guitar player. With the occasional cut of indie rock infused with his rootsy Americana sound, Furtado has a universal appeal. 9 pm. Saturday, Aug 1. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $12/adv, $15/door.

Haunted Summer, Foxtails Brigade, Isles The sultry electronic textures blended with the dreamy, mesmerizing vocals create an enchanting sound that begs to be swayed to. Sometimes haunting, but always smooth, Haunted Summer’s brand of experimental dream pop makes you feel feelings in a beautiful way. Joined by San Francisco-based band Foxtails Brigade and Bend’s very own Isles make this show a great bet for Sunday night entertainment. Foxtail Brigade’s orchestral sound has drawn comparisons to St. Vincent and The Smiths. 8 pm. Sunday, Aug 2. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $7/adv, $10/door.

Effects Pedal Junkies Find Their Voice

Local ambient rock group Isles puts the final touches on an ambitious debut album BY ERIC SKELTON


In August 2013, Bend rock quartet Isles turned heads with an impressive first splash as they introduced themselves with Viracocha—35 minutes of beautifully-sculpted instrumental ambient rock. Largely inspired by a series of improvised jam sessions, the songs are built on meandering song structures that give the EP an innately organic feel. Washed in layers of twinkling delay-driven guitars and ethereal synths over cavernous drums and bass, it’s the kind of music that begs to be played loudly during long drives through dramatic stormy coastlines and expansive mountain ranges. A stunning debut in its own right, the project may end up being remembered as a mere sample platter of what the band is truly capable of. “We hadn’t been a band that long when we made Viracocha,” explains Elijah Goodall (vocals/guitar/synths). “We had been playing improv shows because we really wanted to get out there and it had been a long time since any of us had played live. Then we just took some of the improvs we had recorded and refined them to be a little more structured song-wise.”

For a group of musicians who readily admit to being “extreme perfectionists,” the project came together rather quickly and without much planning. Meanwhile, a much more ambitious (and thematically complex) full-length debut album, Wounded Tropic, was already well underway. “The album is broken down into three movements—which are before, during, and after a storm hits a small island,” says Goodall as he offers a peek at Wounded Tropic’s elaborate storyline. “Then it’s told from different voices. One of the voices that’s portrayed is the natives on the island, another is the voice of the actual island that they live on, the third voice is the storm that hits, and then the fourth voice is sort of a collective: it’s the ocean for a lot of the songs and then there’s one song where it also involves the rest of humanity too.” Years in the making, the concept album takes a step away from the band’s instrumental roots and employs vocals and lyrics to help tell an intricate story. Of course, those vocals are backed by Isles’ signature soundscapes that take advantage of the group’s growing collection of musical gadgetry. Don’t be surprised if you hear manipulated hydrophone field recordings colliding with sparkling guitars and synths. “We’re definitely effects pedal junkies,” chuckles Allyn Dubief (bass/drums/synths). “We all run through pedal boards and just run one pedal into another to get crazy sounds. All of us are trying to get sounds we’ve never heard before.” He continues, “For me, I might get a weird dirty, washy bass sound that reminds me of a volcano erupting, which could go along with an emotion I’ve felt in the past.” “It can get pretty competitive too, trying to find the most different sound or the craziest sound that no one knows what it is,” adds Tyson Vandenbroucke (guitar/synths). That friendly competition has driven four local musicians to grow and achieve things they couldn’t do alone—setting the stage for one of the most exciting local album releases of the year as Isles rolls out pieces of the project in several parts over the coming months.

For a Limited Time Only

Wilco and Speedy Ortiz team up to rock Bend SARA JANE WILTERMOOD

Furniture Locally Made and VIntage Upcycled, Home Decor, Unique Gifts, Paints and Supplies, DIY Classes We Support local & made in the USA! 541-728-3036


Usually, good free stuff comes with a catch. (Buy two, get one free. Absolutely free, with confirmed credit score. Free coupon, expired yesterday.) Not the case with Wilco’s surprise album Star Wars, released on July 16. This album came out of left field for many, as Wilco self-released it without fanfare. Bam! It was there. And for free. A mysterious, fluffy white cat at their website invites patrons to download the album in its entirety without charge—oh, for a limited time only, though. This isn’t the first time the alternative rock/alternative country group has given away its goods. Before the band’s best-selling album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, which also happened to win Wired’s Rave Award in 2003, was officially released in 2002, Wilco streamed it on its website. They did the same with their next album, A Ghost is Born, before its official release in 2004, though it streamed on Apple’s website instead. A Ghost is Born won Wilco Grammys for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Recording Package in 2005. They continued on that trend with albums Sky Blue Sky (2007) and Wilco (The Album) (2009), the latter of which included the No. 1 single on the AAA chart, “You Never Know,” which was their first number one song in 12 years. Their most recent album until two weeks ago, The Whole Love, was also streamed live on their website and released in 2011, along with being nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Album in 2012. It would seem that Wilco believes it is better to give than receive, and their generosity has benefitted them well. Wilco famously formed out of the breakup of the country music group Uncle Tupelo in 1994. Current lead vocalist and guitarist Jeff Tweedy and bassist/backup vocalist John Stirratt are the only two who are still members from the original Wilco lineup. Most of the current band members—Glenn Kotche (drums), Mikael Jorgensen (samples, sound manipulation, keyboards, synthesizers, effects, piano, and organ), Nels Cline (guitar, loops, lap steel), and Pat Sansone (keyboards, rhythm and lead guitar, backing vocals, synthesizers, maracas and tambourine) have been a part of Wilco since the early to mid-2000s. Joining Wilco in Bend is Speedy Ortiz, a Northampton, Massachusetts-based band, who recorded their debut album, Major Arcana, in a speedy four days. Its release in 2013 was heralded by Pitchfork Media as the “Best New Music” and they’ve been likened to 1990s grunge and alternative rock groups Pavement, Helium, and Dinosaur. That band started as lead vocalist and guitarist Sadie Dupuis’ solo project while she was teaching songwriting at a summer camp in 2011; she recorded her material on her laptop. And, as if the band’s lyrics weren’t already saturated in thoughtful wit, she recently completed an MFA in poetry at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, on top of Speedy Ortiz’s touring schedule. The rest of the band consists of guitarist Devin McKnight, bassist Darl Ferm, and drummer Mike Falcone. Their second album, Foil Deer, came out earlier this year, and has been enjoyed by fans and critics alike. Mike Katzif of NPR said in his April review, “What makes Foil Deer truly crackle is the way Dupuis’ words interlock with the band’s barreling energy and turn-on-adime arrangements.” That sounds about right according to a recent “text interview” with MTV12, where Dupuis says the band runs at “100 mph (speedy speedy).” Wilco with Speedy Ortiz 6:30 pm, Saturday, August 8 Les Schwab Amphitheater, 520 SW Powerhouse Dr. $42-$45

Burning Books

Forest fire adventures sizzle in Smokejumpers BY PHIL BUSSE

In Julian Smith’s first book, Crossing The Heart of Africa, published in 2009, he (literally) followed the footsteps of Ewart Grogan, a distinguished Englishman and late 19th century adventurer who bushwacked 4,500 miles from Sudan to South Africa. And, in his most recent book, Smokejumper, released in mid-July, Smith shadows another, more contemporary adventurer, Jason Ramos, a veteran forest firefighter. An adventure, science, and travel writer for top shelf publications like Outside and Smithsonian, Smith is an award-winning writer. For this recent book, Smith serves as a companion writer, helping Ramos narrate and recount his nearly three decades as a smokejumper, one of the storied and elite members of forest fighters who parachute into the heart of forest fires. Smith was first introduced to Ramos after his first book was published. His editor suggested that Smith follow up with another adventure story, this one about forest firefighters, and connected Smith with Ramos. Smith points out that his editor has done that sort of writer-matchmaking before like, oh, some book about a sniper that became a movie starring Bradley Cooper. Over the course of two years, Smith and Ramos talked on the phone like long lost brothers and met a half dozen times in person; sometimes in Portland, but more often in the North Cascades where Ramos is based. “It was mostly drawing out his stories,” explains Smith, “and organizing them into a coherent narrative, and then asking endless follow-up detail questions.” The Source recently caught up with Smith. Source Weekly: One of the challenges you spoke about during the research is that Ramos is somewhat unflappable,

which is great when fighting a fire, but not so illustrative when trying to describe drama and fear. Julian Smith: I think in some subcultures like the military and military-esque service jobs—police, firefighters, etc.—there is a strong cultural aversion to tooting your own horn about what you do. There’s a pressure to not sound self-aggrandizing, never admit to fear or self-doubt, never say what a badass you are, to just let your work speak for itself. This especially applies to small, insular groups like smokejumpers. Although it’s interesting how it seems like every [Navy] SEAL on earth is writing a book now. Jumpers do incredible and essential work, but going around advertising that fact is highly discouraged. That’s probably why there’s really only one other first-person book by a jumper, which ruffled a lot of feathers. At the same time, a certain amount of tooting is essential to writing a book that grabs people; it’s the old rule of thumb that the worse or crazier the experience, the better the story. So that was a delicate balance to strike sometimes. Plus, Jason is naturally a very humble person. So luckily for me he also has a long list of amazing experiences to dig into. SW: Ramos is roughly the same age as you. Did you find yourself comparing your life with his? Wondering if you have had enough adventures? JS: Yeah, it’s funny, we’re almost exactly the same age, but our lives and career paths have been so radically different, which made delving into his especially interesting for me. I admire what he does—I’m kind of in awe of it, actually—but I can’t imagine ever doing a job that’s so physically difficult

and frankly under-appreciated, let alone for as long as he has. Plus, I’ve had a few of own adventures, so I’m happy. SW: Were there some stories that Ramos told you that seemed too crazy or too dangerous to believe? JS: You mean beyond jumping out of a plane to go to work? Every time he talked about being next to a massive wildfire that could veer in any direction at any time, it’s potential nightmare fuel. Nothing unbelievable, more like, “What the hell did you do next?” SW: Like so many jobs, it seems as if technology has advanced to a point that much of the work could be accomplished more safely and efficiently by machines. It would seem as if drones or robots could do some of the same work that smokejumpers historically have done. How is that statement not correct? JS: So far drones can’t dig firelines or find a tiny smoldering fire buried somewhere in a Tolkien forest, let alone put it out. In a sense, smokejumping is very retro work, little changed in over 80 years. But it’s also going to remain something you can only do in person for a long time.

As part of its “Clean Water Works” campaign, the City of Bend and its Arts Beautification and Culture Commission have selected three local volunteer artists to paint four of the city’s storm drains during the first week of August. The goal is to use art as a way to increase awareness about the connection between street storm drains and the Deschutes River. The project coincides with Upper Deschutes Watershed Council’s Stream Stewardship Day, a cleanup effort taking place at Riverbend Park on Saturday, August 8. David Kinker, a local landscape artist, will paint two storm drains: one on the corner of Pageant Park near the footbridge over the Deschutes and another along Harmon Boulevard near the baseball fields. Kinker draws inspiration from nature and having worked as a river guide throughout the Pacific Northwest. “My artwork reflects the sincere love of our natural environment and water and rivers specifically. This project is a natural mix for my two greatest loves, painting and a lifetime love affair with the river,” Kinker said. Nick Maithonis will paint the drain on Tumalo Avenue at the southern end of Drake Park. Maithonis sees his art as a way to share ideas and concerns with the public, such as the impact Bendites have on the Deschutes and its surrounding wildlife. “It’s our duty to take care of the Deschutes not only to preserve an important landmark and recreational site, but also to maintain the crucial life source to native habitat,” Maithonis said. Lisa Marie Sipe was drawn to Bend for its fresh air, snowy mountains, and clear rivers and lakes. “The artwork I’m creating...combines local aquatic wildlife (Oregon Spotted Frog, Foskett Speckled Dace, Warner Sucker and Bull Trout) in the shape of a water droplet. I wanted to visually reinforce that the water going into the storm drain is traveling directly to where local wildlife lives,” Sipe said. She will be painting the storm drain at Galveston Avenue and Columbia Street. Look for these artists during the first week of August. (Locator map: bnz717.)

Bend’s restaurants and bars put out the welcome mat BY THE SOURCE STAFF


“We have water dishes, shade, etc.,  and we love having dogs,” says Crux manager Aaron Childers. In fact, originally, Crux had planned to be an off-leash dog park and bar; however, they could not find an insurance company to underwrite the idea (insert boos and growling here). Even so, the concept remains, as evidenced by the wide-open fields filled with corn hole games and free-form packs of kids playing—and, of course, one of Crux’s original  and classic beers, Off-Leash, a refreshing and lightly hoppy session IPA. Even if not an official dog park, most evenings at least a couple dogs are visiting, lounging like a panting rugs on the patio or curled under the shade of a table. “Dogs are more than welcome,” Childers says. “We love dogs. We only ask that they be kept on leash and stay outside on the patio or our grassy lawn area. Only service dogs are allowed inside.” And Crux is far from alone. Dozens of restaurants in Bend proactively allow dogs to join for dinner and drinks, from dogs resting at the feet of patrons eating at Zydeco’s sidewalk café to the lawn at Worthy Brewing. “We only have complaints if people aren’t following the leash rule and their dog is bothering another dog or some-

one’s kids,” Childers say. “Unfortunately, some people feel privileged  and don’t think their dog needs to follow the rules.” The Lot is another favorite hangout for dogs (and their owners). “The fact that the whole establishment is essentially patio seating makes it very welcoming for our furry friends,” explains Miranda Paul, who serves beer at The Lot. While she says there aren’t any regulars, it seems known that the space is dog friendly, a message that seems to travel informally through dog-owners and is also promoted by websites like, which lists dog-friendly venues around the country and even has “pet friendly travel experts” available for free phone consultations. There are plenty of favorite—and welcoming—spots around town. At Spork, the canine clientele isn’t just tolerated, it’s celebrated. Whatever doggie diners need—from bowls for food and water to affection—the staff is happy to provide. “This is a such a dog friendly town and it’s a bummer for a lot of people if they can’t bring their furry friends,” explains Colin Moore, a manager at Spork. “It adds to that sort of family-friendly Bend vibe.”

And the dogs return the favor. Moore says it’s not uncommon for passersby to be drawn in by an adorable puppy only to find themselves asking about the food and making plans to return in the future. “I think it’s rad that we are able to do it,” Moore says. Riverside Market is also a popular stop for local dog-lovers. With water dishes ready and waiting and designated spots to tie off the end of a leash, the neighborhood eatery welcomes canine companions. “This is Bend, Oregon, so everybody loves to bring their dogs with them everywhere,” explains Riverside employee Ruby Wanko. “Especially on this side of town, people just walk where they go.” She says people living in the area often stop by for a beer while walking the dog, and she enjoys seeing her fourlegged regulars. “One of our regular customers just got a golden retriever puppy,” Wanko says. “It’s so stinking cute.” And though the market doesn’t do as much to promote the dog-friendly vibe as it used to, owner Melanie Brent says to look for a doggie happy hour coming soon.

Kickstart Your Beer

Rat Hole crowdfunds for a new brewery KEVIN GIFFORD

Rat Hole Brew Pub, the small taproom and Southwestern restaurant tucked into an unassuming corner of the Old Mill District, is expanding. And they’d like your help. Earlier this week, Rat Hole—named after the storage barn on the outskirts of Bend where brewers Al and Susan Toepfer built their 2.5-barrel brewery—put up a page on Kickstarter detailing their current expansion plans. They’ve already leased a warehouse in the town of Sunriver, which they plan to turn into a 7.5-barrel brewhouse and taproom, and now they’re crowdfunding to help pay for the work involved. Their goal: $26,250, which needs to be reached by August 21 for the campaign to succeed. (You’re free to pledge however much you like, and you won’t actually pay any money unless the project reaches that final funding goal.) It might be a first for Central Oregon’s beer scene, but turning to Kickstarter to fund nanobrew projects is nothing new. Prairie Artisan Ales, an Oklahoma-based brewer that makes a huge variety of heavy stouts and sour farmhouse beers (you can find ‘em along the I-5 corridor), funded its original facility with more than $20,000 from Kickstarter. Modern Times Beer, one of the current darlings of San Diego’s micro scene, raised more than $65,000 from 645 backers for its initial launch in 2013. Most famously, Stone Brewing managed to raise more than $2.5 million on a similar site, Indiegogo, to help break ground on its new facility in Berlin, Germany. Will Rat Hole’s efforts succeed? Hard to tell this early on. Plenty of crowdfunded projects have failed, too, after all. Two years ago, private-label distillery Gompers Gin tried raising $25,000 from Bendites on Kickstarter for its launch, but only received $1,796 in pledges by the deadline. (They managed to open for business anyway, though, and the gin can be found in liquor stores citywide now.) But for a brewery that does some really neat stuff sometimes—including a 12 Beers of Christmas lineup last year that included a bread-pudding pale and a Belgian-style triple infused with dates—a successful Kickstarter could help make Rat Hole a much larger presence in the scene. Check out the brewery’s Facebook page for all the info, including the multitude of rewards available to backers.

Run, Slap, Run

Cascade Lakes Relay: The most funnest run in Oregon BY PHIL BUSSE




Seven years ago, Carrie and Scott Douglass ran the Golden Gate Relay together, one of the burgeoning number of approximately 200-mile running races that split up the chore among a dozen or so runners. Since then, they also have run the Bourbon Chase and Reno-Tahoe Odyssey Relay, and these events have become not just a hobby, but a business and lifestyle for the couple. “We thought the concept of running all day and night with your best friends was a great way to turn running into a team sport,” explains Scott. “The shenanigans and inside jokes amongst our teammates live long past race weekend. Nothing keeps you going [like] when you know your teammates are a few miles up the road planning something silly for when you pass by.” In 2008, just one week after their wedding, Scott and Carrie hosted the first Cascade Lakes Relay, a 216.6 mile race that starts with a 7-mile loop around Diamond Lake, just north of Crater Lake, and works its way north to Bend. Like other multi-stage relays, the course is covered by 12 different runners, each taking three different legs of the race, riding in sweaty vans, and trying to sleep in-between those runs; usually the run lasts around 24 hours, which means, yes, runners go through the night. But the Cascade Lakes Relay is far from a carbon copy of those other races. Scott and Carrie have purposefully set out to create an event that captures the challenges and beauty of running along the spine of a mountain range, and they also have tried to avoid some of the pitfalls of other relay races; like the congestion caused by Hoodto-Coast, the late summer relay that pushes from Mt. Hood to the Oregon coast and notoriously causes bumper-to-bumper jams as 1,000 vans crawl through downtown Portland and clog the roads on Highway 30. “We thought runners would be excited to try a boutique relay experience with an intimate family feel that focuses on a beautiful, rural course,” explains Scott. When the couple came up with the idea to host relay races, they were living in Oakland, where Scott was serving active duty as an Officer in the Navy. But they both grew up in Bend, and wanted a race that would have Bend as its finish line. They weren’t able to finally and fully return to Bend until 2013, but

conducted the race somewhat remotely in the meantime, building up a loyal following. Scott and Carrie also wanted to create a race that emphasized not only team camaraderie, but strived to create an entire pop-up community during the weekend. Many of the relays are well known for the individual teams and colorfully decorated vans that turn into mobile tribes over the course of the race, creating cultures that go so far as encouraging competitors to count runners that they pass from other teams as “road kill.” On the contrary, Cascade Lakes Relay is looking to sidestep a certain amount of cut-throat competition, and instead create a good-natured attitude. “Unlike Hood-to-Coast, where people count their ‘road kills’ like it’s something really cool, our focus is on creating a positive and supportive family culture at Cascade Lakes Relay,” says Scott. “’Road kills’ are demoralizing and not very motivating for the person that just got out-run.” He goes on, “We’re supportive of competition; nothing says ‘great job’ or ‘you’re doing awesome, keep it up,’ like a solid slap on the ass as you pass and then give them the thumbs up!” To encourage that sort of fun-spirited culture within the relay, Scott has considered adding a component that replaces the “road kill” with a slap on the back (or ass). But recognizing that not every runner wants a pat on the back/butt after 20 sweaty miles, they are considering creating uniforms that have a red light/green light for such hands-on encouragement. “Just like a Brazilian steakhouse with the green/red button that signifies ‘meat or no meat,’” he explains, “we’ll definitely designate whether it’s ok for anybody that passes you to give that love slap. So, if the runner is wearing their bib on their backside...SLAP IT...but if there’s no bib on the backside, I’d recommend just giving the thumbs up when you pass them!” In addition to hosting the Cascade Lake Relay, Scott and Carrie host the Bend Beer Chase and the Spokane to Sandpoint Relay.

What’s the difference between walking and hiking? Well, the steepness of the climb (from no elevation gain along the riverfront, to darn near rock climbing summits). Yup, it is a good reminder that just like Mt. Bachelor offers everything from a green circle to black diamond, the terrain around Bend has a grab bag of trails to match the expectations and abilities of just about everyone.

Easy Most any walk along the Deschutes River Trail will not disappoint, but a favorite is the four-mile stretch between Dillon and Benham falls. The trail is well traveled, making for stable footing, and easily traversed in either direction. For those not familiar with the river, do not expect “falls” in the traditional sense. The white water is much more a series of swift rapids, depending on flow, over lava rocks. Your journey can begin at either end of this section of the trail. Park at Dillon Falls, accessed off of Forest Road 41 on the south side of the Cascade Lakes Highway just west of the Inn at the Seventh Mountain Resort. Alternatively, take the Lava Lands Visitor Center exit off of Hwy. 97 and travel Forest Road 9702 to its end. If time is short, and energy is low, the very easy half-mile walk from this parking lot to Benham Falls is a must do! Moderate The Three Sisters Mirror Lake trail is easily accessible from the Cascade Lakes Highway, approximately 30 miles west of Bend. Approximately an eight-mile, round-trip hike, it intersects the Pacific Crest Trail where you might meet a through-hiker or two (and, yes, they love being asked whether they have read Wild). Elevation gain is a moderate 600 feet, rewarding the hiker with a shallow lake that can be waded in while enjoying the quiet of the always-impressive Three Sisters Wilderness. Yes, there will be mosquitoes in July and August. South Sister This hike is a rite of passage for many in Bend. Typically, you must wait until the snow is sufficiently gone to allow access, though it has been hikable for months in this lowsnow year. More a good hike than it is a climb, there is little, if any, technical climbing. Near the summit it gets a bit steep with some loose rock, but it’s doable for most. The views, of course, cannot be beat, easily justifying the 11.5 mile trek that starts at the Devils Lake Trailhead. Note that the trail is steep in spots and exposed to the weather, calling for a full day of effort (and smart planning/packing) to tame this 10,000-footer. With any luck, there’ll be enough snow for the required snow angel.

SCREEN Theatrical Release

The sad story of a girl named Amy BY MARJORIE SKINNER


Your # source in Central Oregon For All Your Indoor and Outdoor Growing Needs. From a distance, it’s hard to tell how much celebrity suffering is actually theater. Asif Kapadia’s shattering documentary Amy certainly qualifies as theater in its own right, piecing together great amounts of archival, never-before-seen video footage of late musician Amy Winehouse with dramatic effectiveness. Much of Kapadia’s film is narrated by the star herself, inter-spliced with everyone from Tony Bennett to the tearful voice of an old friend on the telephone. The broad facts of Winehouse’s short life are well known—though on a collective level, after just four years’ time, her death still feels unprocessed. The evidence Kapadia has collected of the singer’s struggles confirms what you might have only passively absorbed via tablet or tabloid while on your morning bus commute: disorder of the body and mind, a substance-forward recklessness that could pass as affectation, and the unfortunate influence of one Blake Fielder-Civil, the man who both gave Winehouse the inspiration for the unforgettable record Back to Black and accelerated the severity of her mistreatment of her body, for which he has publicly apologized. By the time Winehouse finally refused to perform, sabotaging her career, it wasn’t theater; it was what she needed. But that was too little, too late. Sorting through all of this is often sordid and plainly sad, though Amy maintains a degree of buoyancy by also focusing on Winehouse’s musical development. The footage of Winehouse’s early performances is so remarkable that her father, Mitch, has recommended that his daughter’s fans see the film, even while denouncing the final product as “unbalanced.” But as it plays, and from an outsider’s perspective, Kapadia’s portrait feels rounded and real. Winehouse could be intimidating, dark, and sarcastic, but also hammy and affectionate. At times Amy feels impossibly, uncomfortably intimate. Unlike HBO’s Kurt Cobain study Montage of Heck—which Amy will unavoidably be compared to, by virtue of their close release dates more than anything else—Winehouse’s story isn’t couched in well-developed nostalgia. Her life is still subject to the public’s investigation and final judgment. While Kapadia’s film is an exercise in the same intense scrutiny that Winehouse prophesied would make her “go mad,” there’s some comfort to be found in the assumption that, now deceased, she can’t feel it.

Ant-Man is the next film in Marvel’s extended universe, which means hopefully sometime in the next few years Ant-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy can team up and charm America’s collective pants off. Advanced reviews say this is the funniest Marvel movie to date and one of its best. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond

THE CONNECTION A french remake/adaptation/reboot/reimagining of The French Connection but, you know, the French part of the story. The film feels remarkably like the classic crime thrillers of the 70s, while paying homage to Jules Dassin, Jacques Audiard, and Melville’s work with Alain Delon. They don’t make crime sag’s like this anymore in the USA, let alone France. Tin Pan Theater

INSIDE OUT Much better than the marketing would have you believe, Inside Out follows a young girl and each of her emotions as they navigate an unwanted move to a new city and school. With the likes of Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, and Mindy Kaling voicing the emotions, expect this to be a fun and vibrant flick for the kiddos and a moving and hilarious experience for the parents. Inside Out is Pixar’s return to form after several years of sequels teach us lessons in diminishing returns. Old Mill

JURASSIC WORLD& 3D If there’s anyone who can face down a theme park full of rampaging dinosaurs, Chris Pratt seems like just the person to do it. With his winning charm and a roguish twinkle in his eyes, he will speak reason the the hearts of velociraptors who will see him and go “Hey, other dinosaurs, if humanity is like this guy, maybe they’re not so bad after all. Let’s eat tofurkey instead!” Or they’ll eat him and Bryce Dallas Howard and be on with their day. Either way, shut up and take my money. Old Mill

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Guaranteed to be THE movie of the summer, the entirety of Fury Road is an extended chase boasting some of the finest cinematography, filmmaking, and action sequences ever put to film. Tom Hardy replaces Mel Gibson as Max, who teams up with Charlize Theron to save some young women from a massively insane warlord. If you only go to one film this summer, this is the one.

MAGIC MIKE XXL Now with twice as much dong but 100% less Steven Soderbergh. Channing Tatum returns as magic Mike, the hard luck male stripper who carves his own destiny one pocketful of greasy dollar bills at a time. While the first film had a sense of lightning in a bottle that made it entertaining watch, the missing creative team makes it HARD to get excited for this one. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX MINIONS & MINIONS 3D The spin-off of the Despicable Me franchise boasts one pretty bizarre thing going forward: lead characters that speak in some weird hybrid of gibberish and gobbledygook. The minions themselves are cute enough and escape death regularly with enough panache to be entertaining just on their own without Steve Carell’s Gru getting in the way. Expect this to be the #1 grossing animated film of the year. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Pine

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION & THE IMAX EXPERIENCE Tom Cruise is a badass. You can mistake his weird personality and cult membership as him not being one, but he is. The man does most of his own stunts and gives 110% every single time he is on camera, whether the film deserves it or not. Considering Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was the strongest entry in the franchise yet, being cautiously optimistic for this one would not be foolhardy.

MR. HOLMES It’s hard to realize that collectively as a planet we’ve all been waiting for a Sherlock Holmes movie starring Ian McKellen, but now that it’s here, do we really appreciate it? McKellen plays the greatest detective who ever lived (sorry Batman) as he looks back on

his life and muses about one of his only unsolved cases. I bet he solves it. Old Mill Stadium

PAPER TOWNS From the novel by the author of The Fault in Our Stars, Paper Towns is once again a coming of age story, but without disease as a backdrop. Margo is a huge fan of mysteries and one night she disappears, leaving a trail of clues for her friend Quentin to find. It is an interesting premise, no doubt, so hopefully Green’s story will focus more on the mystery and less on the maudlin. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

PIXELS & 3D If any other creative team on Earth were behind this movie I would be the first one in line, but Adam Sandler and Kevin James vs. 1980’s video game characters makes me sad because now we’ll never get to see Bill Murray and Dan Ackroyd do it. Even though the trailer has Peter Dinklage sporting a mullet, the track record for Sandler has been pretty dismal for the last few years and inspires nothing but fond memories of Billy Madison and hallucinogenic penguins.

SOUTHPAW Jake Gyllenhaal shoots for the Oscar with a boxing movie like Crowe, Wahlberg, Beery, and Bale before him. He gained a stone of muscle after going sick skinny for Nightcrawler and looks ready to pound his revenge into the people responsible for the death of his wife.

TED 2 Everybody’s favorite racist, homophobic, xenophobic, sexist, and definitely anti-semitic stuffed bear is back to probably show us his nuts some more, or at least say something offensive. Which is fine, I like my stuffed animals like I like my ladies: old, racist, and missing some buttons. Look! I can do it too, Seth MacFarlane. You’re not special. St.Francis Theater TERMINATOR GENISYS A reboot/sequel to Schwarzenegger’s most popular franchise that is suffering from extremely negative, critical word of mouth and some very underwhelming trailers that seem to spill the entire plot of the film. Daenerys Targaryen plays Sarah Conner, but due to a new timeline, is now a warrior instead of a victim. With the T-800 and Kyle Reese, she must stop the perpetually happening Judgement Day...again. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

TESTAMENT OF YOUTH A coming-of-age WWI movie starring Jon (he knows nothing) Snow and the luminous Alicia Vikander. Based on the autobiography by Vera Brittain, the film narrows its focus to her experiences during the war and the grueling daily struggle of being a nurse in those times. It also has a love story, because Jon Snow. Tin Pan Theater TRAINWRECK Amy Schumer takes her stab at the big time with Judd Apatow’s new comedy.

VACATION This should look like a nightmare but the trailer is packed with laughs and Chris Hemsworth’s giant prosthetic dong.

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE When Marnie Was There is Studio Ghibli’s last film to date and possibly their last film as a studio. No pressure or anything. The film is much more From Up on Poppy Hill or The Wind Rises than it is Howl’s Moving Castle or Spirited Away, so adjust expectations accordingly. The animation is lovely and the story is simple yet captivating, making this another success from Ghibli. Tin Pan Theater

zarre, and it absolutely BOMBED at the box office. (Plus it was given a terrible review by none other than Roger Ebert—but we’re gonna give him a pass since he’s no longer with us. Hope he’s writing smarter reviews in heaven!) Anyway, despite its original poor opening, Wet Hot American Summer eventually found its audience on DVD and cable where it became one of the most beloved camp classics of our time. (Now are you feeling like a jerk because you didn’t watch the movie when I gave you the opportunity? Hope that masturbation was worth it!! [It probably was.]) With that in mind, it’s cause for celebration that the film is back with its Netflix sequel, “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp”. Not only does it reunite most of the original cast (with some great cameos from Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, Jason Schwartzman and more!), “First Day of Camp” is actually a prequel to the original story…meaning if it was hilarious in 2001 that these older actors were playing 16-year-olds, it is now hilarious times three they’re playing the same teens 14 years later! (Note: Paul Rudd is eternally gorgeous and will look exactly the same age forever.) Naturally you can expect the same level of laughs, stupidity, and raunchiness in this miniseries, and since Roger Ebert isn’t around to give it the thumbs down, there’s no reason to miss a single gut-busting episode. (Unless you’re too busy masturbating. Give it a rest, will ya?!? There’s more to life, you know! [Actually, I guess there isn’t.]) Hot wet tweets! @WmSteveHumphrey

First of all, if you’ve never seen the 2001 cult classic film Wet Hot American Summer, then go watch it right this instant! Seriously, right now. I’ll wait. (Are they gone? Good. UNNGGGH, aren’t people who refuse to familiarize themselves with popular culture the worst? I mean, it’s bad enough these people never get your hilarious movie and TV references, but then they get all high-horsey and act like they’re too evolved to learn about pop culture, while simultaneously feeling butt-hurt that they’re being left out of conversations, and…. OOHHHH, HI! You’re back! We missed you.) Anyway! The reason I wanted you to watch Wet Hot American Summer is because they’re getting the gang back together again for an eight-episode miniseries debuting on Netflix this Friday, July 31! On three everybody…one, two, three… SQUEEEEEEEEE!! AREN’T YOU FREAKING EXCITED?? AREN’T YOU LOSING YOUR GODDAMN MIND RIGHT NOW?? AREN’T YOU…wait. You didn’t watch the original movie, did you? I paused the column for you!! What were you doing all that ti…oh, masturbating. Well, okay…that’s a worthy pursuit, I guess. FINE, FAWK IT, I’ll just tell you about it. The original Wet Hot American Summer was created by comedians David Wain and Michael Showalter (from the sketch group, The State), and was a spot-on parody of those 1980’s teen sex comedies. It starred such now well-known luminaries as Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, and more, and revolved around the over-sexed counselors at a kids’ summer camp. The jokes in Wet Hot American Summer were hilarious, filthy, bi-

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Every time you resist acting on your anger and instead restore yourself to calm, it gets easier,” writes psychologist Laura Markham in Psychology Today. In fact, neurologists claim that by using your willpower in this way, “you’re actually rewiring your brain.” And so the more you practice, the less likely it is that you will be addled by rage in the future. I see the coming weeks as an especially favorable time for you to do this work, Scorpio. Keeping a part of your anger alive is good, of course—sometimes you need its energy to motivate constructive change. But you would benefit from culling the excess. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Much of the action in the world’s novels takes place inside buildings, according to author Robert Bringhurst. But characters in older Russian literature are an exception, he says. They are always out in the forests, traveling and rambling. In accordance with astrological omens, I suggest that you draw inspiration from the Russians’ example in the coming days. As often and as long as you can, put yourself in locations where the sky is overhead. Nature is the preferred setting, but even urban spots are good. Your luck, wisdom, and courage are likely to increase in direct proportion to how much time you spend outdoors. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Has a beloved teacher disappointed you? Are there inspirational figures about whom you feel conflicted because they don’t live up to all of your high standards? Have you become alienated from a person who gave you a blessing but later expressed a flaw you find hard to overlook? Now would be an excellent time to seek healing for rifts like these. Outright forgiveness is one option. You could also work on deepening your appreciation for how complicated and paradoxical everyone is. One more suggestion: Meditate on how your longing for what’s perfect might be an enemy of your ability to benefit from what’s merely good. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): French and Italian readers may have no problem with this horoscope. But Americans, Canadians, Brits, and Aussies might be offended, even grossed out. Why? Because my analysis of the astrological

omens compels me to conclude that “moist” is a central theme for you right now. And research has shown that many speakers of the English language find the sound of the word “moist” equivalent to hearing fingernails scratching a chalkboard. If you are one of those people, I apologize. But the fact is, you will go astray unless you stay metaphorically moist. You need to cultivate an attitude that is damp but not sodden; dewy but not soggy; sensitive and responsive and lyrical, but not overwrought or weepy or histrionic. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Which signs of the zodiac are the most expert sleepers? Who best appreciates the healing power of slumber and feels the least shame about taking naps? Which of the twelve astrological tribes are most inclined to study the art of snoozing and use their knowledge to get the highest quality renewal from their time in bed? My usual answer to these questions would be Taurus and Cancer, but I’m hoping you Pisceans will vie for the top spot in the coming weeks. It’s a very favorable time for you to increase your mastery of this supreme form of self-care. ARIES (March 21-April 19): “I am very much in love with no one in particular,” says actor Ezra Miller. His statement would make sense coming out of your mouth right about now. So would this one: “I am very much in love with almost everyone I encounter.” Or this one: “I am very much in love with the wind and moon and hills and rain and rivers.” Is this going to be a problem? How will you deal with your overwhelming urge to overflow? Will you break people’s hearts and provoke uproars everywhere you go, or will you rouse delight and bestow blessings? As long as you take yourself lightly, I foresee delight and blessings. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In her article on untranslatable words, Esther Inglis-Arkell defines the Chinese term wei-wu-wei as “conscious non-action . . . a deliberate, and principled, decision to do nothing whatsoever, and to do it for a particular reason.” In my astrological opinion, the coming days would be a favorable time to explore and experiment with this approach. I think you will reap wondrous benefits if you slow down and rest in the embrace of a pregnant pause. The mysteries of silence and emptiness will be rich resources. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “I always liked side-paths, little dark back-alleys behind the main road—there one finds adventures and surprises, and precious metal in the dirt.” The character named Dmitri Karamazov makes that statement in Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel The Brothers Karamazov. And now I’m thinking that you might like to claim his attitude as your own. Just for a while, you understand. Not forever. The magic of the side paths and back-alleys may last for no more than a few weeks, and then gradually fade. But in the meantime, the experiences you uncover there could be fun and educational. I do have one question for you, though: What do you think Dmitri meant by “precious metal in the dirt”? Money? Gold? Jewelry? Was he speaking metaphorically? I’m sure you’ll find out. CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason,” says comedian Jerry Seinfeld. His implication is that rejecting traditional strategies and conventional wisdom doesn’t always lead to success. As a professional rebel myself, I find it painful to agree even a little bit with that idea. But I do think it’s applicable to your life right now. For the foreseeable future, compulsive nonconformity is likely to yield mediocrity. Putting too much emphasis on being unique rather than on being right might distract you from the truth. My advice: Stick to the road more traveled.

Hat Crime


My boyfriend of six months lives an hour away. We’ve had weekend overnights, but now he wants to come visit for an entire week. I’m super-excited but—don’t laugh—worried about his seeing me in my shower cap. (My hair takes 45 minutes to blow-dry, so I wash it only once a week.) My ex-husband used to make fun of me for wearing it, telling me how unsexy and stupid looking it was. How do I introduce my boyfriend to this thing? —Embarrassed

Introducing your boyfriend to your plastic shower hat? Easy: “Hi, meet the end of your erections.” Consider that there are lots of hot sex scenes in movies that take place in showers. Note that no woman in any of them is wearing a shower cap. This is not an accident or omission on the part of countless movie directors. Male sexuality evolved to be visually driven—and no, not by the sort of visuals that scare a man into thinking he’s walked in on Aunt Bea. (And— nice try, shower cap manufacturers!—calling it “Bath Diva” or making it in an animal print doesn’t change that.) Yeah, I know, it’s what’s on the inside that counts—but not if a guy doesn’t want to have sex with what’s on the outside. And by the way, it’s hard enough to find a romantic partner attractive over time. Do you really want to give your boyfriend a visual obstacle course? Instead, be open about your deepest hopes, fears, and dreams—right before you lock yourself in the bathroom with the elasticized stepsister of the plastic grocery sack.

We are so very sorry to report the passing of Roland S. Sweet, the writer and curator for News Quirks. A week shy of his 70th birthday, Roland died on July 24. We are so very grateful for his steady contributions to the newspaper—and to 15 other weekly newspapers in North America to which he contributed New Quirks. We know that New Quirks was a favorite column of our readers, but New Quirks was merely the tip of the iceberg for a wonderfully friendly man, who led a wonderfully generous and interesting life. (Some of the information that follows was submitted by Roland’s wife, Theodora T. Tilton.) Born in Panama City, Florida, on August 2, 1945, he was the son of Col. Harold L. Sweet and Mary Sue Sweet. He graduated from Suitland High School (Class of 1963), and from 1965 to 1971, served in the U.S. Air Force as an Air Traffic Controller, including a tour of duty in Thailand. Returning stateside, he attended University of Maryland and graduated with honors and a B.A. in 1972. He later earned an M.S. in Public Communication from Syracuse University (1984), earning the Newhouse School’s Wolseley Award for outstanding academic merit. Most recently, in addition to writing his weekly column, Roland was the editor-in-chief of Log Home Living magazine, which he helped launch in 1989. Over the years, he was also editor of Log Homes Illustrated, Timber Homes Illustrated and Distinctive Wood Homes magazines. Yes, there is a theme here! He also authored Log Home Secrets of Success (2010) and 100 Best Log Home Floor Plans (2007). He developed and presented log home seminars all over the country. He began his career as an editor The Syracuse New Times, a weekly newspaper, and wrote for a number of newspapers and special interest publications. He was also the

co-author, with Chuck Shepherd and John J. Kohut, of several volumes of the popular “News of the Weird” series, which served as a springboard for his weekly syndicated column. He had an eye and fascination for human folly. With headlines like “Curses, Foiled Again” he profiled police stories about crimes gone stupidly wrong. In the spirit of classic newsrooms and tickertape reports, he collected these quippy stories and shared them each week with his fans. He won three Ozzie Awards for Publishing Excellence, the Syracuse Press Club’s Lifetime Achievement award, and, perhaps most proudly, the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia’s Outstanding Tutor/Teacher Award for tutoring a Guatemalan immigrant in spoken and written English. At the age of 52, Roland earned his Private Pilot’s license, and was qualified to fly single-engine light, complex, and tailwheel aircraft. Roland was a fan of the Washington Nationals, DC’s baseball team who are enjoying a decent season. He had a succession of grateful rescue dogs, most recently, Pippa, and four foster elephants—Kibo, Shukuru, Ashaka, and Mbegu—that he helped sponsor. He loved spending time with his wife at their getaway in the Shenandoah Mountains and laughter shared with his legion of friends. Roland is survived by his wife, Theodora T. Tilton; brother Samuel D. Sweet (Anne Corbett), and many nieces and nephews; and, by his readers throughout North America and of this very newspaper.

JULY 30, 2015 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY / 45



Bend City Councilors will be making local rules that impact the time, place, and manner in which recreational marijuana is grown, processed, and sold. So we asked them about their past, present, and future marijuana use. Here’s what they had to say (or not). Councilors Sally Russell, Nathan Boddie, and Barb Campbell did not respond to multiple requests for comment. Source Weekly: Have you ever consumed marijuana? When, and in what context? Doug Knight: I don’t have any comment regarding my own marijuana use, except to say that I was like every other experimenting college student. Victor Chudowsky: I can’t tell you. Jim Clinton: I’ve never been into using marijuana and think it extremely unlikely I ever will. I can’t stand any kind of altered consciousness. Casey Roats: I once had an opponent in a political race offer me some, but no. SW: Do you currently use marijuana? If not, have you considered it now that it’s legal? VC: None of your business. CR: I don’t use it. However, I wouldn’t be opposed to using it for medicinal purposes. SW: Did you vote yes on Measure 91? VC: I don’t remember.

JC: I never say how I voted on measures or candidates—that’s my role as a citizen and [has] nothing to do with my role on the City Council. Yes, the voters in Oregon approved legalization and that will reduce some long-standing problems, but we should all realize that it will also cause other problems to get worse. For example, I really don’t like kids accessing attractive edibles, especially considering all the other distractions that promote stupidity rather than intelligence. And there will be more stoned drivers to add to our load of drunk drivers. Our job at the City is to establish policies and regulations that mitigate problems while allowing people to do what is legal. CR: I didn’t vote for Measure 91. SW: Do you have any connections to marijuana-related businesses? VC: No. JC: I have no connections, and never will, to any marijuana-related business. CR: No connections to the industry. SW: Is there anything else you’d like to add? VC: You’re harshing my mellow with all of these questions. Seriously, the City Council may have to make some land use decisions on marijuana and to be fair I can’t go into that with any conflicts or bias one way or another. In land use matters we are a quasi-judicial body. It’s a matter of law and fairness so my personal attitudes don’t enter into it. JC: How this will all play out is uncertain, but it clearly is a big social experiment. Past government approaches to marijuana have been mostly dumb—let’s hope this is a change for the better. CR: I would only add that my hope is that the legalization of marijuana will hurt the black market business and that it could help to reduce the stigma and/or allure of the product to young people who really shouldn’t be smoking it in great quantities at a young age.
