The City of Bend’s Citywide Transportation Advisory Committee has been working for over a year to establish a set of guidelines around Bend’s future transportation plan. The committee—made up of a diverse group of volunteers that include a member of the Central Oregon Builders Association and the president of the Bend Chamber, as well as the president of Bend Bikes and the executive director of the Environmental Center—have drafted a tentative set of policies that include adding more sidewalks to Bend’s inventory and increasing bike and pedestrian access, as well as plans to address some of the city’s pressing traffic needs. We believe the committee’s work thus far is an ambitious, inclusive body of work that sets Bend on a path toward being a safe, inclusive, well-rounded city in the realm of transportation. This is a very good thing. Driving is not going away—but our community shouldn’t shy away from believing in the “If you build it, they will come” philosophy around active transportation, as well. If you build a transportation network that allows people to safely transport themselves without a vehicle, they will do it. Right now, too many otherwise-enthusiastic bike commuters shy away from regularly commuting without their cars, believing that certain pain points in the city, such as crossing 3rd Street at Greenwood, are too unsafe to travel. If we build different options into our transportation infrastructure, people will use them. Those worried about not having enough downtown parking should do what they can to support the people who don’t become part of the parking problem in the first place. Unfortunately, there are always those who oppose diverse transportation options. It has been argued that requiring homeowners to install sidewalks, or having

the City build traffic-calming Neighborhood Greenway routes, are forms of “control.” Indeed, those are methods of traffic control—but so are traffic lights and additional driving lanes. Governmental oversight is not a scary notion that gives too much “control” on the part of local government. That is laughable. It is one of local government’s core functions. The idea that not every neighborhood street needs a sidewalk is dangerous and shortsighted. Tell a child who walks home from school on the streets that don’t get prioritized that their neighborhood needs less control. Do certain kids deserve to walk home safely, while others don’t? Bend is a long way from installing sidewalks on every single street in the city, and the Committee is unlikely to recommend requiring them everywhere right now. For now, however, we’d be thrilled to see sidewalks installed on all major arteries, as well as the streets directly feeding to local schools. Check out any street besides 6th or 8th streets on the blocks near Bend Senior High School before school, and you’ll likely have to dodge teens, darting this way and that. They deserve the same infrastructure as the kids at Summit High School, a school that’s far newer and is located in a neighborhood that fell under more recent city requirements. While the bulk of the dollars necessary to meet the needs of the Transportation Advisory Committee’s draft policies would need to be used for big projects such as constructing and modernizing roads and improving transit systems, we believe there’s great value in adopting community values around active transportation in our community. The Committee is on the right track in keeping those values in its draft plan. If you build it, they will come.




Simple economics can influence human behavior. Humans listen to the economic sermon of the mighty dollar more than we listen to the moral sermons of right and wrong. We know it is morally wrong to pollute the atmosphere, as Pope Francis reminds us, yet we persist. Americans need encouragement to take action on climate change, and we can follow the lead of our neighboring Canada, by using economics. Prime Minister Trudeau is on board with international commitments to reduce emissions, mitigating a warming and disruptive climate. It’s no longer free to pollute carbon in Canada. As of the first of April, all provinces are required to have some form of carbon pricing, which in turn will influence their choices for years to come. Hats off to Canada for leading at this crucial time in history. Canadian Catherine McKenna (Minister of Environment and Climate Change) stated, “We are all paying the cost of storms, floods, wildfires, and extreme heat. Our government is ensuring a price across Canada on what we don’t want, pollution, so we can get what we do want—lower emissions, cleaner air, opportunities for businesses with clean solutions, and more money in the pockets of Canadians.” In the U.S., the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act HR 763 is gaining traction in the House of Representatives with 27 cosponsors. Similar to Canada, it would drive down America’s carbon pollution and bring climate change under control, while unleashing America’s can-do talent in technology and innovation. —Susan Atkinson


All sympathy to the residents dealing with the neglect of Juniper Ridge. Property taxpayers may notice the “Juniper Ridge Urban Renewal” charge is still on their property tax statement, as it has been for many years, without any “Urban Renewal.” My 2018 bill for this misguided, piein-the-sky project is $18.07 a year. Using a rounded figure of, say, 50,000 property owners, $903,500 is collected every year since the bond was passed by voters, who never saw homeless camps as the renewal they had in mind. Some of

that huge pot of money certainly should be used to relocate the homeless, and remove aggressive dogs and possible unstable transients from the Juniper Ridge property. Tax-paying residents with small children living near Juniper Ridge are experiencing understandable concern. At the very least, Juniper Ridge should be kept clean and maintained by city/county government until some form of renewal takes place. They certainly have our money to do so. —Patsy Kestner




Please get off your high horse and stop blaming Trump for everything. That only makes you part of the problem. “Coming from a family of Holocaust victims and survivors,” I think you might give him some credit for his brave recent gestures to Israel giving them back Golan Heights, a strategic point separating them from Syria and their worst enemies. Since he has been in office he has, at least, secured a much better alliance with Israel than we had previously. Remember, there are extremists on all sides of issues these days. —Jeanne Brooks


There is no way to defend the gross unfairness of the Electoral College System. It sets up a disparity in voter representation whereby a ballot cast in Wyoming carries 70 times the weight of one cast in California. It is merely a tool to deny the majority of the voters in this country of the right to have their votes count and their voices heard. The Electoral College was implemented by the framers of the Constitution who were all wealthy white landowners who had no intention of giving the right to vote to anyone not belonging to their elite club. Madison and the other elites never intended for voting rights to extend to the nonwealthy, women, African Americans and surely not Native Americans, et al. The system was put into place simply because they wanted to deny the vote to the majority of the people in the country. And this is exactly what the Electoral College System still does today: It allows local elites to limit access to the ballot without losing national clout. The Electoral College System is based on population, but only a fraction of that population is eligible to vote, and only a smaller

portion of that population actually votes. The archaic system has overturned the will of the majority of the American voters in two of the last five presidential elections, giving us two of the worst nightmare presidents in the history of this nation: one a blithering war monger, the other a bigoted hate monger, and both insufferable idiots and consummate liars with total disdain for truth and morality. By giving Clinton a popular vote plurality of more than 3 million in 2016, the American people soundly rejected King Bozo and all that he stood for, by a huge and unprecedented margin. Yet this narcissistic buffoon, refusing to bow to his status as a minority president, has instead perverted it into a mandate to assume dictatorial powers and demonstrate fully the mortal danger he poses to American democracy. The Electoral College in its present form only serves to facilitate voter suppression and make a mockery and hypocrisy of “free elections" in the country that once pandered its holier than thine democracy around the world. A few more years of the current system with its corporate dominance, voter suppression, elimination of the citizen initiative process, gerrrymandering, lobbying, refusal to have every vote counted equally, etc., ad nauseam, and the tattered democracy we still have will disappear into the stinking swamp inhabited by Trump and all his fascist corporate goons. —Marc Munez

Oregon Is Moving Toward A Plastic Bag Ban The Bend City Council voted Dec. 5 to reduce the use of single-use plastic bags, a plan that will officially go into effect on July 1. Bend’s plan will enforce a not-less-than10-cent fee per bag for customers who don’t bring in a reusable bag. “It’s time for us to be more sensible,” Councilor Barb Campbell said during the Council meeting last December. “The planet doesn’t belong to us.” However, it appears the whole state of Oregon might also be following in that same direction with House Bill 2509.  HB 2509, titled the “Sustainable Shopping Initiative,” moved out of the House Energy and Environment Committee last week. HB 2509 is centered around plastic pollution and other single-use plastic items. If ultimately passed, the bill would ban those single-use plastic grocery bags and would add a 5-cent fee on paper bags. Including Bend, there are 12 other cities in Oregon with a similar practice in place - including Portland, Eugene, Ashland and Corvallis to name a few. – Isaac Biehl, Source Weekly

Cautious Optimism That Clark County Measles Outbreak Is Ending Michaela Roman Statesman Journal

Why Oregon Teachers are Talking About a Possible May 8 Strike Educators across Oregon are planning to walk out of class Wednesday, May 8 should the Oregon Legislature not add an additional $2 billion per biennium needed to maintain and improve K-12 schools. Over the last two decades, the state has financed schools at 21 to 38 percent below what its own research suggests districts need to be successful. Many educators argue the lack of funding has resulted in teachers having to do more with less. They say this is reflected in the state’s low graduation rates, high dropout and absenteeism rates, as well as rising issues with disruptive behaviors, mental health needs and large class sizes.

It’s been 19 days since Clark County, Washington, last announced a new case of measles. The public health department is cautiously optimistic the outbreak is ending. Clark County isn’t celebrating yet. But it has closed the incident command center where up to 40 public health officials spent their days tracking infectious cases. The six regular staff are now working on all the health issues that were put aside during the height of the outbreak. Public Health Director Dr. Alan Melnick said the incubation period for measles lasts between one and three weeks. “We’re almost one incubation period since that last exposure. If we go two — which would be April 28 I believe — then we would declare the outbreak over,” Melnick said. – Kristian Foden-Vencil, OPB

A Talk with Bev Clarno Looking forward—and back—with Oregon’s new Secretary of State, who hails from Central Oregon



n March 29, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown named Bev Clarno, a former state legislator and rancher from Central Oregon, as the new Secretary of State, following the death of Dennis Richardson in February. In announcing the appointment, Brown alluded to Clarno’s “trailblazing spirit” and her “commitment to Oregonians.” Clarno was sworn in April 1 at her home in Redmond. Amid her busy schedule, I caught up with Clarno to look ahead at her plans for the office, as well as taking a trip down memory lane. “I am very proud to be a Central Oregonian serving the state—again, and proud to be a voice for Central Oregonians in Salem once again,” Clarno said.

Even if

t oo f g Bi Real,




m i H d ee N ll i t We S By Laura Krantz, High Country News


brace myself as I open my email: Another note from someone who listened to my Bigfoot podcast, Wild Thing, and felt compelled to write me. Most of the time, it’s a nice fan letter. Every so often, it’s an outpouring of disappointment or an angry diatribe. And then there are letters like this one: “I know they exist — beyond a doubt, I have been physically touched on the shoulder by one on a mini-expedition in northeast Washington state — doing vortex photography and swapping stories with the sheriff’s department of the local county. They are good folk, the Sasquatch people — they are so much more than a Wild Thing in the woods.” I’m relieved it’s not hate mail—lambasting me for daring to question Bigfoot, or daring to explore Bigfoot, or just daring to have an opinion—but the letter leaves me cringing, embarrassed, asking why, exactly, I got myself into this. I spent the last two years researching and reporting a podcast on America’s greatest myth, mainly in an effort to understand why a relative of mine, a well-respected professor of anthropology, became obsessed with Bigfoot, putting his reputation on the line in his search for the creature. Now I wonder if I’ve jeopardized my own reputation. I’m a serious journalist who has worked for NPR, covering subjects from foreign policy and politics to technology and literature. I’ve explored a wide variety of scientific topics. I believe in logic and rational thought, not spirits or magic. But then I went chasing Bigfoot. For two years. I talked with wildlife scientists, anthropologists and psychologists. I camped and hiked all over the Pacific Northwest. I attended Bigfoot symposiums and lectures and campouts. My eyes rolled (internally) at some people’s stories, and my jaw dropped at others. And in the end, I could never completely eliminate the idea of Bigfoot from my mind.   I’m not crazy. And I’m not alone. From the dawn of human history, we’ve shared stories about creatures outside

the bounds of civilization, avatars of the wild: Enkidu, Gilgamesh’s wild companion in the Mesopotamian epic; Grendel, that greedy, loping shadow-stalker of the Danish fens; the Australian yowie; the Himalayan yeti. Bigfoot first appeared under its Salish name, Saskehavas, Sasquatch, in modern literature in 1929. Maclean’s, the Canadian news magazine, described the Sasquatch as “strange people, of whom there are but few now — rarely seen and seldom met … ‘the hairy mountain men.’” Tribal nations of the Pacific Northwest used stories of Sasquatch to educate their children. How better to personify the unpredictable nature of the wilderness than with a mysterious, unpredictable wild thing? A creature like us — but not us. By the 1950s, (as U.S. tribes were being removed from reservations and relocated into urban

areas) Sasquatch was fully appropriated as Bigfoot, becoming an American icon. Hundreds of books, countless TV shows … and my own podcast. Why? “I think we need (Bigfoot) in a deep-seated psychological way, because of our evolutionary origins,” Robert Michael Pyle, a lepidopterist, naturalist and poet, told me in an interview late last summer. We were walking through a quiet and heavily forested glade in coastal Washington. “I think it goes all the way back to what we came from.” Half-wild creatures have been feeding the human imagination for thousands of years. We have evolved with them, and away from them. In the grand scheme of human evolution, we rarely lived without monsters at the edges. Gilgamesh’s city-state, Beowulf’s mead hall — these exist in opposition to Enkidu Laura Krantz

and Grendel. We fear the wild, and we miss it. For Bigfoot to exist, even in our imaginations, we need a landscape that can carry him. In a modern world that is so tamed, so pruned and paved, we are losing something that has long been with us and defined us. “Frankly, I think if we lose our connection to the wild,” Pyle said, “we’ll be far less human, less animal.” Our belief in Bigfoot may be a sign of our spiritual health. We live in an era of data and numbers, formulas, algorithms. We fantasize a future of super computers and robots, self-driving cars and delivery drones. Soon, we may never need to leave the house, let alone the city. But what’s the cost of this severed connection with our animal selves? We’d do well to remember that we are not far removed from all life on Earth, even if we like to pretend we are. Bigfoot — that tether to a primitive state — is a reminder that the world is big and wide and wild. In fact, cryptozoology (the study of animals whose existence is unproven) shares a common goal with its vaunted academic cousins: conservation. To search for Bigfoot is to identify and protect biodiversity and habitat. “The raison d’être for any bigfoot research group is the ulterior motive — the important motive — which is conservation and preservation,” John Kirk, one of many, many people I interviewed, told me on a rainy day, at a weekend-long Bigfoot symposium in Willow Creek, California. “That’s what I’m doing it for. You have to prove they exist before you can save their habitat.” Kirk, a policeman and the president of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, said he’s firmly in the “Bigfoot exists” camp, but to him, that’s beside the point. “I think habitat’s worth preserving plain and simple, but if you can put a biological rarity into that equation like they did with the spotted owl,” he said. “Goodness gracious me — that’s the only reason I would ever want to show the world (Bigfoot) existed.”

the width of mine with an opposed thumb and hair between the fingers. Bears don’t have that kind of a paw. And it was bigger than a bear’s paw and it didn’t have claws, it had fingers, with an opposed thumb.” Mionczynski lived to tell the tale, but the encounter has puzzled him ever since; despite all his professional and scientific training, it eluded any explanation he could come up with. Over two years, I spoke with dozens of people like him, like me — rational, logical people who subscribe to the laws of physics and biology, who have experienced something beyond their under-

rejected. And yet, 50 years later, Higgs’ ideas on quantum physics resulted in the discovery of the Higgs-Boson particle. Imagination, not logic, did that. Even the pursuit of crazy ideas like Bigfoot can yield interesting discoveries. Back in 2012, an Oxford professor by the name of Bryan Sykes was perfecting a technique for getting DNA from hair. He began to wonder whether all the reported sightings of strange, hominid creatures around the globe might be evidence of small, surviving populations of ancient human relatives, such as Neanderthals or Denisovans.

I didn’t expect to find the idea of Bigfoot so integral to what it means to be human. But that electric, alive feeling I get when I look at the black wall of wilderness beyond the campfire light — that’s Bigfoot. standing, and just have to figure it out. They keep going out into the woods, hoping to catch another glimpse, to make more astute observations, to get a better sense of what is and what isn’t. They are keen observers of the natural world. They run workshops to train Bigfoot newbies on how to recognize animal sounds and scat, to collect wildlife DNA and make casts of tracks. Bigfoot makes outdoor enthusiasts of people who might never have taken an interest. If the natural world needs anything right now, it’s more people taking an interest. Does it matter how they get there? As all wild things should, Bigfoot represents possibility and imagination — the tools of human progress. In the 1960s, Peter Higgs put forth a paper about an invisible substance that permeates all of space and has a particular effect on physics particles. The idea seemed so bizarre, so outlandish, that it was initially

So Sykes asked people to send him hair samples from possible Bigfoot, yeti and other cryptozoological creatures. From nearly 100 samples, he extracted DNA from about 30. Most of the tufts turned out to be normal — bears, canines, raccoons, cows, sheep, people. But two samples made him take notice: They partially matched DNA found in the jawbone of an ancient polar bear, a species from 40,000 years ago. Sykes thought that this might have been the DNA of an unknown species of bear. He was wrong, but the excitement over that idea helped fund subsequent work by Charlotte Lindqvist, a bear geneticist at SUNY Buffalo. She learned that what were thought to be two subspecies of bear in the Himalaya were genetically distinct, and that one of them descended from a very ancient line of bears. Real or not, Bigfoot helped us achieve better understanding of a critically endangered species we didn’t know much about.

For Bigfooters, DNA is the next great hope. Many see it as the key to finding the physical Bigfoot evidence that’s been sorely lacking. The tools available to scientists have become so powerful that they can sequence DNA with just a few skin cells — perhaps the very thing you might find in a giant ground nest out on the Olympic Peninsula. As I stood, mouth agape, staring at those nests last summer, the Olympic Project had already sent samples out to New York University, where a molecular primatologist would analyze them to see if they contained any unusual or unknown DNA. Every week, like clockwork, I’d email the guy, to see if he had results and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hoping he’d find the genetic material of some unidentified primate. I started spinning out ideas of what this discovery would mean for science, for humanity, for the world. I understood how people became obsessed with Bigfoot because it seemed I’d caught a little bit of that bug, too. And then the analysis came back, with evidence of bats, shrews, humans, bears, deer, coyotes — but no Bigfoot. Nothing to indicate any primate other than human, and any creature other than what was typical for the area. Disappointing, to say the least. So when the primatologist told me that the nest samples were pretty degraded, that they weren’t ideal, I began hoping that newer nests would be found and, with them, evidence of Bigfoot. Yet all is not lost. For me, Bigfoot provided a better understanding of human evolution, DNA analysis, the psychology of belief and the basics of field biology — topics I might not have explored otherwise. Yes, finding a giant, undocumented primate in the North American woods would be unbelievably, gobsmackingly exciting (and likely provide a bit — just a tiny bit — of vindication for all the Bigfoot people out there). On the face of the current evidence, however, I do not think that Bigfoot exists. But that’s not the point. Even Bigfoot people have their doubts. And yet, the fascination persists. Why? Because even if he isn’t real, we really, really need him. I spent the last two years chasing a shadow, suspending disbelief to imagine a world wild enough to hold something as extraordinary as Bigfoot. I didn’t expect to find the idea of Bigfoot so integral to what it means to be human. But that electric, alive feeling I get when I look at the black wall of wilderness beyond the campfire light — that’s Bigfoot. To look at the stars and wonder what’s out there; to gaze into the ocean and imagine its depths; to imagine a better future for our planet, and come up with solutions — that’s Bigfoot, too. If we can’t imagine something like Bigfoot, if we can only envision the obvious answers, the next data point, we risk being mired in our own limitations.

On a cool, sunny weekend early last June, I took a trip out to gated private timberland out on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. For months, I’d been hearing about some giant ground nests out there, discovered by the owner of the land, and now being observed and studied by a Bigfoot research group, the Olympic Project. A member guided me deep into the rhododendrons and spruce, well off the beaten path, and halfway down a steep ravine, so I could see the nests with my own eyes. I expected a pile of debris, something that resembled the mess left behind by spring runoff or a pounding storm. So I was wholly surprised by the 10-foot-diameter ground nests, woven as intricately as a bird’s nest, and deep enough to hold a fullgrown human. And there were many of them — 21 in this area, although I only saw a handful. They looked nothing like a bear bed, and much more like the pictures I’d seen of the type of nests that gorillas make. And for the first time, I found myself more convinced of the possibility of Bigfoot than I’d ever been. The idea energized me; it felt electrifying and full of potential. What if, for all these centuries, people had been seeing this creature out in the forest? What if it really did exist, right under our noses? What would this mean? Some of the world’s great conservationists have been interested in cryptozoology, including the founder of the World Wildlife Fund, Peter Scott, who fought for classification of the Loch Ness monster. Bigfoot enthusiasts are, at heart, naturalists. They love being out in the woods, they love the environment, they love nature and everything that goes along with it. One guy I talked to refers to the search, sometimes called “bigfooting,” as “hiking with a purpose,” part of a general enthusiasm for the outdoors. Like fishermen and hunters (many Bigfooters are both), they are keen to protect wilderness — a place where the unexplained still happens. In October 2017, at a Bigfoot conference celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Patterson-Gimlin film (the famous minute-long clip allegedly showing a Bigfoot walking away through the woods), I met John Mionczynski, a longtime wildlife biologist who had worked both federal and state agencies. Decades ago, as he was doing a wildlife survey in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming, he had a hair-raising encounter. One night, he awoke to the sound of heavy breathing and the shadow of what resembled a bear on the wall of his tent. The creature poked its nose into the side of his tent; Mionczynski tried to scare it off by yelping and hitting it. It ran off, but came back a second time, and then a third. This time, the creature’s silhouette was over the top of the tent and it looked like it was walking on two legs. Mionczynski thought the bear had grabbed onto the branch of the lodgepole pine that stuck out over his tent. So he hit it again. And this time he hit something hard as a rock. “And as soon as I did,” he says, “this shadow came over the top of the tent, and it was a silhouette of a hand that was about twice

Dancing with “Wolves”

Precious Byrd’s second-ever EP comes out April 13 By Isaac Biehl




he boys of Precious Byrd have become a staple in the Pacific Northwest, and Central Oregon especially. It’s a wonder that they’ve only put one project before this, with 2016’s “Superphonic Magical” EP, but here they sit – a Bend symbol representing nights danced away to funky grooves. But the wait for more original material is almost over, with their sophomore EP “Wolves” dropping April 13. According to bass player Lonnie Chapin, “These are the best songs we’ve ever released.” “Wolves” runs six tracks, and is filled with that high-energy and good-timey feel you’d expect. It’s a modern take on funk, soul and dance with that slightly hardened rock edge. We’ve heard half of the EP, and it’s sounding pretty slick. Here’s our take on the three songs: “Wolves” The album-titled opener is a heartbreak anthem about being fed to the “wolves,” and hung out to dry by a past relationship. The track is simple, but hits the right spots for a breakup song: one that captures your feelings and one you can sing your heart out to. The chorus is the strong point here, as the intro to “Wolves” builds up nicely to the ultimate revealing of the wounds left behind. “Where The Wild Things Are” This was the lone single the band put out in prep for the EP, so go check it out if you haven’t yet (the music video features a familiar scaly face you might recognize from our Central Oregon Pets magazine. Ryker is truly a star in the


Precious Byrd’s second EP, “Wolves,” releases on April 13, along with a release party at Volcanic Theatre Pub.

making). “Where The Wild Things Are” is a pop-polished anthem about creativity and following your dreams. “We’re the young and courageous,” croons lead singer Corey Parnell. “Where The Wild Things Are” serves two purposes: one is essentially an ode to Precious Byrd’s beginnings as a band, starting out just knowing they wanted to have some fun, and the second being a piece of encouragement for others looking to take the jump with their art.

Providing private, compassionate euthanasia services for your cats & dogs in the privacy of your pet’s home.

“Vultures” The opposite of a wolf, in the form of a sky hunter, vultures circle leftover prey and attack. The theme of this song centers around the technology of 2019 and how it can become life consuming, i.e. our cellphones. How many times a day do you pull it out to look at meaningless notifications? “These silver screens they’re nearly on us / They’re constantly, stealing our focus / They’re circling, these little

vultures,” rings the chorus of “Vultures.” We’re all accustomed to having the world at our fingertips, but Precious Byrd is wondering what happens when we let it go for a moment. Overall, these sneak peeks have me excited for what the whole project has to offer. “Wolves” has groovy and fun tracks that reach out to a deeper meaning—always enjoyable when it comes down to the hard listening. The early bread crumbs show that the project will be there for us when we want to get up and boogie, but also there for when we want to think about different things going on in life. The band’s release party at Volcanic Theatre Pub is already sold out, so hopefully you were among the ones who snagged a ticket. For the band however, that feeling is priceless. “The band started as a couple friends just wanting to have fun playing music together. That idea still stands and that’s what we do, except now we’ve added a bunch more rowdy friends in the crowd!” says guitarist/ vocalist Casey Parnell. “Central Oregon is an amazing place filled with so many great people. We can’t believe the show sold out in such a short time, truly just an example of how this community loves music and supports its own. We’re very thankful!”  Precious Byrd Album Release Party Sat., April 13, 6:30-9:30pm Volcanic Theatre Pub 70 SW Century Dr., Bend SOLD OUT

The Excellence of Murs

JMax Productions/Paradigm Agency

Fun fact: Murs once rapped for 26 hours straight in 2016, which at the time was a Guinness World Record.


first found Murs 10 years ago while watching MTV. His “Rock The Vote” spots kept coming on in between my shows, during the heat of the 2008 election—coming in conjunction with the release of his album, “Murs for President.” I was only 13 or 14 at the time, so obviously I couldn’t vote, but I was fascinated. Who is this rapper with cool hair? If he wants me to vote one day, I probably should, I thought. Murs is the underground—or, what the underground was. He is a voice of real substance in rap—a theme questioned heavily today with the new crop of artists taking over the mainstream. Since the ‘90s, Murs has been delivering raw stories with honesty and conviction. He’s not one for

facades or feeling the need to put on a front; the only thing Murs knows how to rap about is the real stuff. On his 2018 album, “A Strange Journey Into the Unimaginable,” Murs opens with a vulnerability not often matched: “Then when I cry in public I could finally do so without having someone tell me I should feel embarrassed. Cause I’m not— and I cried a whole lot. When I filed for divorce and when the homie got shot. And not one time did I laugh at Tyrese’s tears, ‘cause when I was separated from my son I cried every day for almost a year.” It’s that honesty and openness that makes Murs an underrated treasure. He’ll be rapping about superheroes one minute and socioeconomics the next. If you take a look at the likes of Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole, you might notice they’re doing some things similar to what Murs has done throughout his career. He’s a rapper’s rapper – uplifting not just other artists, but being a voice for communities and entire segments of the nation, as well. In a 2018 interview with the okayplayer website, Murs said, “Am I the influence I want to see in music? Yeah, definitely. Be the influence that you want to see in the world. I don’t know about as a parent, I’m still growing. But as a rapper, I’m definitely… hopefully…” he continued on to reference the love and respect he’s received from his elders in rap—something he said he’ll always cherish. There’s a connectiveness in a Murs song that’s undeniable. It’s a highly vivid form of storytelling that can take you on trips to anywhere, even if you haven’t experienced these things yourself. At 41, the L.A. rapper is one of the last torch-carriers from his era of California hip-hop still making high-quality music today. With over 20 years of music-making behind him, Murs sits at a spot where the past and future of rap are able to collide—which is what makes him so interesting, and hip-hop lovers old and young should still be listening to him today.   Murs w/ Lock Smith, Cojo & Tyler Martian Mon., April 15. 8pm The Domino Room 51 NW Greenwood Ave., Bend $15

Getting Lost in Cabin 8

Artist In Residency program offers a tranquil spot for creativity By Isaac Biehl Anthony Aquino

Textile artist Megan Mesloh’s laid-out works at the cabin.

Artists who are accepted into the AIR program stay in the cozy Cabin 8 for two weeks, with a front-row spot to Suttle Lake and access to all of the surrounding areas in the heart of the Deschutes National Forest. New this coming year is a program for artist ensembles of up to six people. “Our goal is to compose a broad collection of artists for each year, to represent folks from multiple disciplines,


different stages in their career, different backgrounds, etc.,” says Bellingham. “It’s important for us that we be able to accommodate established artists, and artists who are just starting out and building their experience.” Coming to the tail end of this year’s AIR program, the lodge will be releasing the application for the 2020 winter this spring, with the deadline to apply

Local Paintings Censored

Works featuring quotes by the president deemed too controversial for local building By Teafly Peterson


aintings by local artist Paula Bullwinkel spent about one day hung in a local mixed-use building before a complaint prompted the building owner to request they come down. “25%! Americans! Approved!” is Bullwinkel’s series of oil paintings, featuring women inspired by beauty ads from the ‘60s, ‘70’s and ‘80s, alongside images of rodents and quotes by Donald Trump. Bullwinkel’s paintings were hung in the common areas of the Franklin Crossing building April 2, as part of a show that included photographs by Bullwinkel’s past photography students. The next day, Bullwinkel found out that due to the complaint of a Franklin Crossing tenant, the paintings would have to be removed, at the request of the building owner. A representative from Northwest Key Property Management, who manages

this summer. Interested artists can also email the lodge directly for more information. The overall selections are a group effort, as a panel from the lodge comes to a collective decision. “It’s been really wonderful to meet each artist and learn about how they have adapted a unique routine for life at the lake, and how physically being on property has affected their daily practice. We provide a very simple space for lodging and studio, and this stripping down of lifestyle has been pretty transformative for the artists in their work,” Bellingham says of the atmosphere in Cabin 8. “It’s inspiring to see the excitement in their eyes, and hear about the projects they’re working on, new discoveries, wildlife sightings, etc. Each of the residents has embraced this place in the forest and has integrated being outside as part of their routine. It’s also wonderful to see the relationships and connections that occur with our residents and our wonderful staff, visiting guests and local community.” 

Paula Bullwinkel prepares to remove paintings from the wall of Franklin Crossing, after complaints that the portion of the paintings containing quotes from the 45th president were too offensive.

the retail spaces in the building, confirmed that someone had made a complaint, but would not say how many complaints they received in the short time the paintings were hung. Bullwinkel says the object of the complaints were three words in the quotes from the president, specifically, “pussy,” “ass” and “shithole.” The quotes are placed in different areas in each painting,

with the largest of the words being approximately 1 inch high. Bullwinkel says there was concern that children may see the words when in Franklin Crossing. “It was the words that were (considered) offensive, because the paintings without the quotes are just my typical imagery of women and girls and animals frolicking,” explains Bullwinkel, who said the paintings are a result of the anger she

was feeling after the 2016 election. Feeling the words of the president were brutal enough, Bullwinkel wanted to juxtapose them with more subtle and soft imagery. “I don’t want to create ugly imagery, because it’s too hard to look at. I want to be more subtle so people will look at it a little longer and let the words be the ugly part.” This is not the first exhibition of this particular series. Last October, the series was on display at the Pence Pinckney Gallery at Central Oregon Community College as part of a faculty exhibition. According to Professor of Art Bill Hoppe, who oversees exhibitors in the gallery, the paintings were well received and yielded no complaints. “People looked and they read. No one was upset in any way. (This work) was a sort of confirmation of what is going on in our world,” shared Hoppe. After taking the paintings down, Bullwinkel hung them at Bright Place Gallery for the weekend and hopes to find another home for them soon. Bullwinkel says, “I love to see it had a reaction. I thought they may be vandalized. Often with my political work, I don’t get any reaction. But when there is a reaction, I know they have had an impact.” Other paintings by Bullwinkel are currently on display at At Liberty as part of the “Figuratively Speaking” group exhibition.

inding the time—and the space— for creativity can be hard. The outside world beckons— distracting many creative types from building up focus, resulting in half-baked projects or shoddy execution. The Suttle Lodge and Boathouse, located just outside of Sisters, aims to remedy those challenges for at least some distracted artists with its Artist in Residency program. Taking a trip to the Suttle Lodge is like entering a different world. Pulling up in the parking lot, it instantly makes sense as to why this would be an artist’s dream sanctuary. “The vision was to provide the simple gift of space and time for an artist to work at their leisure. We are lucky to be in the Deschutes National Forest, and this landscape provides so much opportunity for exploring creatively, it only makes sense to share it,” says Suttle Lodge Director of Sales Rebekah Bellingham. “We don’t require any finished work from Cabin 8 artists – the time at the lodge is 100 percent in the artist’s control. We’ve had residents who’ve pounded out pages and pages of work. Others have been able to spend the time to apply for important grants to support their practice; still others have spent time writing fiction, when they’re best known as a singer songwriter.”





Foodie Feats: A Pictorial Peek

By Lisa Sipe


The Source eating (and drinking) team works its way through a host of food spots to arrive at this year’s Restaurant Guide winners



eek after week, year after year, the Source eating (and drinking) team has a tough job: Eat (and drink). And then tell readers what we thought about it. It’s a challenging gastronomical feat under any conditions, but once a year, the stakes get higher. Every spring, the Source eating (and drinking) team sets its sights on naming a Restaurant of the Year, in addition to a Rookie of the Year and a Food Cart of the Year. As you’ll see by reading this week’s Restaurant Guide (inserted into this very issue), the challenges were

so great and the options so many that this year, we had to launch a fourth category: Rookie Food Cart of the Year. For this week’s Chow column, we’ve opted to open a window into the world of the Source eating (and drinking) team, showing you part of our process in selecting and then documenting the 2019 winners. This process is quite different than our summertime Best of Central Oregon contest, in which we open up the voting to you, the loyal readers, to

vote for your favorites in a host of categories. Here, we use our own expertise—gleaned from years sampling and writing about food—to nominate, discuss and select the eventual winners. (And hey, we’re journalists, so you can bet that most of us also toiled in restaurants and bars while working our way through the unpaid internships so ubiquitous in our industry…) See more great info on each of the spots mentioned here in the Source’s 2019 Restaurant Guide!

Bend Bowls Opens at 9th Street Village

Bend Bowls is serving up buddha bowls, aka hippie bowls or macro bowls—basically bowls of delicious, healthy food. Best friends and owners Lorena Mathers and Stormie Van Patten said they started the food truck to offer amazing healthy food options and show their girls that dreams can become reality. “We can’t believe the love and support we’ve gotten already,” said Van Patten. Their signature bend bowl includes mixed greens, brown rice, black beans, cabbage slaw, cheddar cheese, avocado, radish, lime, onion, cilantro and house made chimichurri sauce. In addition to their four bowls you can order a hummus veggie platter, quesadilla or chips and salsa.

Sunday Suppers Benefit Local Farms

In celebration of Earth Month, Wild Oregon Foods is hosting a Sunday supper to benefit two local farms, Casad Family Farm and Rainshadow Organics. Both farms had a rough winter with damage to their buildings and land. The money raised will help these farms as they approach the start of the Central Oregon growing season. No tickets required; simply show up and enjoy a delicious, locally inspired supper.

The Ronin team, from left, including Hot Line Chef Monet Rogers, Chef-Owner Scott Byers, Sushi Chef Gianni Mancuso and Sous Chef Jake Peterson, strikes a playful pose during the photo shoot with photographer Daniel Robbins..

For those not familiar, this is not a “dumb” phone, nor a “smart” phone, but a land line phone. It was used to call the businesses listed in the Restaurant Guide, ensuring their info is accurate. Of course, things change often, so when in doubt, call ahead.

The team at Ronin Sushi and Japanese Grill—our Food Cart of the Year—sent photographer Daniel Robbins home with a series of hand-written notes, explaining stuff about the food. Hand-written notes stuck in every crevice of our notebooks help us stay organized during this hectic issue.

Goat Questions? Answers at 18th Annual Goat Education Day

Love goats, beyond how easy they are to use in puns? The 18th Annual Goat Education Day is for you. The kid-friendly day includes educational classes, raffle, vendors, a beer garden and breakfast and lunch from Bad Boys BBQ. Classes tackle goat crafts (soap making and fiber), cooking (goat meat and cheese making) as well as caring for goats—from what you need to buy, nutrition, kidding and kid care, and more.  

The Source eating (and drinking) team met at Hogan’s one Saturday to be extra-super sure we should create the new Rookie Food Cart of the Year category, and should give it to Hogan’s. Here, Source Copy Editor Richard Sitts tests out the goods. He approves.

The pineapple serrano margarita literally sends the Source eating (and drinking) team into paroxysms of joy—one of the many reasons they earned our Restaurant of the Year status.

CRAFT A Community Brew Market of Choice Riverbend produces Blunder Armour IPA to help Cascade Armory battle Under Armour

is hiring!




By Chris Miller

Cans of Riverbend's Blunder Armour roll off the canning line in the war against clothing giant Under Armour.


iverbend Brewing Company’s latest beer is a classic interpretation of a Northwest IPA. It’s clean looking, tastes great, and at 7 percent alcohol by volume, will give drinkers that after-ahard-day relaxation IPAs are known for. But it wasn’t created just to make another great-tasting IPA. Instead, it was created in part to help out another local business. On Oct. 24, 2018, Bend’s Cascade Armory—which designs and sells casual clothes including hoodies, flannel shirts and hats —received a cease and desist order from one of the titans of athletic apparel: Under Armour. Under Armour said Cascade Armory’s “use and application constitutes trademark infringement, trademark dilution and or unfair completion under federal and various state laws.” “We’ve known Alex (Short) from Cascade Armory for many years now,” Riverbend’s Head Brewer Chasen Schultz told the Source. “He’s been a good friend of ours, and we heard about what Under Armour was trying to do to them with the cease and desist orders. We figured this was a great way to help, not only helping financially, but just by helping shine some light on the whole issue of corporate bullying.” Schultz said a portion of sales of every case of 16-ounce cans and kegs sold will go to Cascade Armory’s legal fund. “We’re going to continue brewing this beer for the next foreseeable future,” Schultz said. “As long as it keeps selling and people keep supporting it, we’re going to keep it around.” Schultz said each batch of Blunder

Armour will be slightly tweaked to keep things interesting. In the first two batches, Schultz said they used a different yeast strain. With future batches, they’ll vary dry-hopping, kettle hopping and yeast strains. And, they’ve put different “code phrases” on the bottom of each can for consumers to check out on social media to find out exactly what’s new with each batch. On April 6, Riverbend, Cascade Armory and the On Tap food cart pod teamed up for the Blunder Armour release party. Short told the Source that Blunder Armour’s first keg sold out in record time. In addition, Riverbend sold another keg and many cases of beer. Short said he also sold about $5,000 in clothes at the event. “The support from the community was incredible,” Schultz said. “People were buying handfuls of four packs. Just looking around at On Tap, if felt like every other person had something Cascade Armory on.” Schultz said Riverbend canned about 350 cases and 16 kegs of Blunder Armour for its first run. He said the kegs are already gone and that retailers are taking the cans this week. Even though Riverbend’s pub is now closed, the brewery is still producing beer. Beer lovers can find Blunder Armour at select rotating taps around Bend and the packaged beer at Market of Choice, Newport Market, C.E. Lovejoy’s Market and Broken Top Bottle Shop. Larger chains, such as Albertsons and Safeway, carry Riverbend’s usual suspects.

DUMBO: Arguably, Tim Burton hasn’t made

a great movie since 1999’s “Sleepy Hollow,” so it’s easy not to expect much from his “Dumbo” adaptation. Disney’s live-action remakes have been pretty solid, though, so who knows?

to a picture-perfect rambling farmhouse in rural New England. Their daughter Ellie (cute as a button horror vet Jete Laurence) soon discovers the bizarrely creepy titular Pet Sematary where the locals ritualistically bury their deceased pets like totally normal townsfolk. Nothing to see here. From here the movie takes a jagged turn into a darkness that is somehow only amplified by John Lithgow’s mysterious appearance as a lovable grandpa figure with a suspiciously wholesome interest in the young family. You’re not fooling anyone, John. When their beloved family pet Church the cat suffers a violent death, the Creeds are too torn up by their own traumatic histories of loss and grief to break the news to their cute young daughter. Instead, Louis carries the cat to the sinister cemetery deep in the woods to perform an ancient burial ritual that sets horrible, terrifying events in motion. “Pet Semetary” might not have the lingering dread of the novel, but amplifies the atmosphere from the 1989 film version 10-fold.

veryone knows horror legend and icon Stephen King can craft a tale so chilling it lingers in the collective consciousness with the staying power of urban legend. But those who write him off as nothing but a master of schlock are missing out on his equally expert grasp of character and normalcy. It isn’t the evil clowns, obsessive fans or undead pets that make King’s stories so scary, it’s his ability to spin a nightmare out of the mundane details of normal life. His characters and settings feel like people we know and places we’ve been, so when the monsters arrive it feels like it could happen to us at any time, or that it is happening, at that moment, right past the corner of our eye. King’s tales with a family of protagonists often have a powerful center, and this dark modern fairytale about the afterlife is, at its heart, about loss of innocence and coming to terms with death. Pretty lofty ambitions for a writer still not really accorded the respect he’s earned. Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz star as Louis and Rachel Creed, a couple with two young children who make the move

Stephen King should have patented the idea of evil children.

different third act) also has better performances and tighter direction, leading to a film that doesn’t once lean into schlock or camp. Purists who are looking for a faithful adaptation of the book or original movie might be disappointed, but this new trip through the Semetary offers a few detours while staying true to the themes

of King’s novel. What really matters is whether it’s still scary—and my goosebumps tend to think so.  Pet Semetery

King of the Marathon

Local elite runner Max King celebrates a decade of his running club and the acquisition of the Bend marathon with Kari Strang By K.M. Collins

Running clubs While he’s originally from Medford, Ore., the first running club King started was in Eugene, while competing in the Olympic Trials. “It’s a special feeling to be a part of that, because most athletes are striving for the Olympic Games. It’s neat to feel like you are reaching that pinnacle of the sport and getting to be a part of that Olympic movement.” When King relocated to Bend as a chemical engineer for Bend Research, he set out to host something similar. That club recently had its 10th anniversary. “Ten years ago, there wasn’t really a performance workout running group, to help people get faster for competition, and Teague (Hatfield), at FootZone, was totally down to sponsor,” King recalls. Since

ax King and I meet up to talk about his local running club and the Bend Marathon—but pretty soon, we veer off, discussing his wins in the 2014 100k World Championships and the 2011 World Mountain Running Championships. “This is going to be an article that bounces around from topic to topic, like me,” King chuckles. From racing to coaching and now giving the Bend Marathon a facelift, running is incorporated into nearly every aspect of King’s life.   Although he’s competed all over the world, his favorite terrain is the Bend Marathon, which he and his business partner, fellow runner and coach Kari Strang, acquired last summer.


inception, the group has attracted 30 to 40 runners in the summer, ebbing to 10 to 20 runners in the winter. Held on Tuesday nights, “It hasn’t changed a ton,” says King. During the club’s anniversary party, King was touched when participants spoke up about how it brought the running community together and helped them meet marathon goals. “It’s cool to be the piece holding that community together, and helping create bonds and friendships, because we are going through something hard,” reflects King. Youth clubs King also coaches a cross country, track and trail running youth club. “The goal working for youth is to create lifelong athletes, having healthy lifestyles and getting outdoors. I want to address childhood obesity from the perspective of making exercise fun. In trail running camps, we also talk about advocating for public lands,” King said. “If you’re on public lands hiking or running, you should be an advocate for them to make sure they’re around for the next generation.” Locally, King typically trains at Shevlin Park, in the Three Sisters Wilderness and around Bend. “Shevlin is like a high desert oasis— all the different ecosystems coming together with the creek and forest. It’s unique,” he says. Acquiring the Marathon The Bend Marathon takes place April 20. In acquiring it, King and Strang

hoped to bring the race back to its roots and transform it into a premier community event for Bend, incorporating corporate wellness plans, youth programs and involving local neighborhoods. This year, the race starts and ends at the Les Schwab Amphitheater—something King advocated for.

A Smaller Footprint


Affordable housing options in Bend? I can attest to the difficulties that arise when trying to keep standards and quality high while working on a tight budget, especially with the rising costs of land, materials, labor, insurance, permits and system development charges. One easy way to reduce costs is to simply build smaller. While I was building homes I dreamt of building a community of small, efficient, sustainable green homes with similar quality as Northwest Crossing and homes in size of only 1,000 square feet. Along the same lines is the brand new tinyhome community in southeast Bend, called Hiatus. An attempt to offer lower-cost housing in a very small package, the 477-square-foot homes start at around $245,000. Higher density would be another viable consideration for affordable housing. A larger, multi-level building with smaller condo units that’s centrally located would also bring the overall cost of construction down. We may need to step outside of our comfort zones to consider these options, because the cost benefits are immense. With a focus on helping people become homeowners and building wealth, it’d be easy to overlook living situations that we aren’t accustomed to. Affordable community living can and has been done tastefully in larger cities. The focus would need to stay consistent with the ability to live, work and play within close proximity, allowing people to have pride in their ownership and truly enjoy their living experience.

urrently in Bend, there’s a broad spectrum of housing development underway, varying from upscale projects in the northwest to more economical options on the east side. Just to the west of Northwest Crossing is a new development called Discovery West, which will have a centralized park streaked through it and will be comparable to Northwest Crossing, utilizing mixed residential and live-work spaces and close to parks and trails. In all reality it will be a pleasant place to live, work and play. This is just one of the mid- to higher-priced communities that have emerged on the popular west side. When budgets are tighter, west side locations become limited—so most will look toward the east side developments to match their housing needs. As urban sprawl spreads throughout Deschutes County, it’s fair to say that we have the middle to upper home prices covered. The big question remains, what about actual affordable housing options? Home ownership is just out of reach for a large percentage of Central Oregonians who are begging for the question to be answered. The term “affordable housing” is used to describe housing no matter what your income, but specifically, as housing costs that are at or lower than 30 percent of your household income. In general, every household has a unique budget and opinion on this subject. The question is, how do we achieve affordable options? As a former home builder,

The guy I’m dating and some of my friends don’t seem to get how disrespectful it feels when they play around on their phone or text while I’m talking to them. Am I crazy to want eye contact and attention when I’m talking? —Irritated This smartphone multitasking thing probably goes further than anyone knows – like, I’m picturing a parishioner in the confessional and the priest in the adjoining booth on his phone, shopping for a new cassock: “Next-day delivery. Sweet!” Parishioner: “Um, father...did you hear me say I murdered three people and still have them in my trunk out back?” Somebody came up with an annoyingly cute name—phubbing (a mash of “phone” and “snubbing”) — for when someone ignores you in a social setting by being all up in their phone. Not surprisingly, research by social psychologist Varoth Chotpitayasunondh finds that phubbing comes off as a form of social ostracism—allowing the snub-ee to experience that fun feeling some of us had in third grade when other kids diagnosed us with cooties and sentenced us to eat alone for the rest of elementary school. Chotpitayasunondh’s research suggests that being phubbed by friends and acquaintances threatens our fundamental need for “belongingness.” Other research on phubbing’s effects in romantic partnerships finds (again, not surprisingly!) that it erodes intimacy and makes for less-satisfying relationships and diminished personal well-being. Regarding phubbers’ skewed priorities, the title of a study by communications prof James A. Roberts says it all: “My life has become a major distraction from my cell phone.” The important thing to remember is that you have a choice in how you are treated—whether you’ll put up with having, oh, 46% of someone’s attention. Your power in pushing for respectful treatment comes out of what I call the “walk away principle”: how willing you are, when somebody refuses to give you the level of respect you want, to just say, “Well, I’ll miss you!” Figure out what sort of phone behavior works for you (for example, phone totally off and away when they’re with you or, say, facedown on the table in case the babysitter or liver transplant team calls). Explain the issue by appealing to their empathy—“it hurts my feelings when...”

-- rather than attacking them. You might also feel less slighted if you remind yourself of the addictive pull of these electronic binkies. Frankly, we’re lucky cellphones are a very recent invention. “Washington Falling Into the Delaware,” anyone? Or maybe a little Patrick Henry: “Give me liberty or...wait a minute! I think somebody just liked my Instagram post!”

Taking Care Of Buzzness I’ve been in recovery from drugs for six years, and I had to set a boundary with an old friend who’s abusing drugs again and lying to me and using me. I kept trying to help him, but all the lying and scamming was just too much. I finally blocked him on my phone -- as I knew I had to. So why do I feel so bad about it? —Been There Amy Alkon

A guy will insist he’s clean, tell you he’s finally just “high on life”—a state which...hmmm...doesn’t usually involve shouting matches with the curtains. Your feelbad about saying no to any further convos with this guy actually has some ancient roots. Ancestral humans lived in a seriously harsh environment, so we evolved to cooperate—to work together and help each other—making it less likely we’d starve to death and/or get eaten by lions. But people don’t always put out a memo listing their needs, so how do we know when to help? Well, welcome to the evolution of empathy, our tuning into others’ emotions and “catching” what they’re feeling (to some degree). Unless you’re a sociopath or a sex robot, empathy rises up automatically, as does its sister state, compassion. Compassion, as I define it in “Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck,” is “empathy with an action plan”— motivating us to want to do something to help when we see a person suffering. In other words, your emotional overlords have been pinging you, alerting you that somebody’s in distress, and unfortunately, reason (as usual!) is late to the party. That’s to be expected, because reason is what cognitive scientists call an “effortful process,” in contrast with the automatic “Awww, poor you!” of empathy. Get reason out of bed and use it to remind yourself that you weren’t helping this guy; you were enabling him—“protecting (him) from the consequences of his behavior” (as they put it at Sure, there may come a time when he’s ready to “say no to drugs,” but right now, he and drugs are having some very interesting conversations and may even start a podcast.

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I hope that sometime soon you’ll acquire a new source of support or inspiration. Now is a phase of your astrological cycle when you’re likely to attract influences that are in alignment with your deep values. This addition might be a person or animal. It could be a vibrant symbol or useful tool. It may even be a fantasy character or departed ancestor that will stimulate vitality you haven’t been able to summon on your own. Be on the lookout for this enhancement. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Poet David Hinton analyzed the Chinese word for “poetry.” Its etymological meaning is “words spoken at the fertility altar.” Let’s make that your theme, even if you don’t write or read poetry. I suspect the coming weeks will be a favorable time to take a vow or utter a solemn intention in front of a homemade fertility altar. The oath you speak might express a desire to boost your use of your physical vitality: your lust for life, your adoration of the natural world, or your power to produce new human life. Or your vow to foster your fertility could be more metaphorical and symbolic in nature: the imaginative intimacy you will explore or the creativity you’ll express in future works of art or the generous effects you want to have on the world.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The national animal of Finland is the brown bear. The national insect is the ladybug and the national instrument is a stringed instrument known as the kantele. As for the national author, it’s Aleksis Kivi, who produced just one novel that took him ten years to write. He also published a short collection of odes and a few plays, adding up to a grand total of less than 800 pages of work. I think that the efforts you make in the coming weeks could have a disproportionately large impact, as well, Leo. What you lack in quantity will be irrelevant compared to the sheer quality you generate. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I follow the blogger Evanescent Voyager because she makes me cry with sad joy and exultant poignance on a regular basis. One of her other fans wrote her a love note I could have written myself. It said, “Your emotional brilliance and thoughtful passion break me into pieces and then weave me back together with more coherence than I had before reading you. I revere your alchemical talent for undoing me so you can heal me; for lowering my defenses so I can be open to your riches; for demolishing my habitual trance so you can awaken my sleeping genius.” I believe that in the coming weeks, life itself will offer to perform these same services for you, Virgo. I urge you to accept!


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The literal meaning of the French term jolie-laide is “pretty and ugly.” Bloggers at define it as follows: “It’s a fascinating quirkiness that’s irresistible, like a face you want to keep looking at even if you can’t decide whether it is beautiful or not.” Jolie-laide overlaps with the Japanese term wabi-sabi, which describes a person or thing that is lovely because of its imperfection and incompleteness. I bring these facts to your attention because I think you have extraordinary potential to be a master embodier of both jolie-laide and wabi-sabi in the coming weeks. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As Czech playwright Vaclav Havel (1936–2011) matured, he became a political dissident who opposed the Soviet Union’s authoritarian grip on his country. Eventually he was a key player in the Velvet Revolution that banished Communism. When Czechoslovakia emerged as a new democracy, its people elected him president. Havel later thanked Lou Reed and the band the Velvet Underground for fully awakening his liberationist leadership. He said their unruly music stoked his longing to establish a culture where total creative freedom was possible. I mention this, Sagittarius, because now is a favorable time to identify the music or art or films or literature that might fuel your emancipation in the coming months.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn author J. R. R. Tolkien toiled on his masterpiece The Lord of the Rings for twelve years. Once he finished, it wasn’t published for more than five years. So seventeen years passed between the time he launched his precious project and the time when it reached an audience. I don’t think you will need that much patience in shepherding your own venture to full expression, Capricorn. But I hope you’ll summon as much faith in yourself as Tolkien had to rouse in himself. To do so will bring out the best in you! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Released in 1998, The Prince of Egypt is an animated film that tells the story of the Hebrew prophet Moses. In the climactic event, the hero uses magic to part the waters of the Red Sea, allowing his people to run across the sea floor and escape the army that’s chasing them. To make that seven-minute scene, 28 professional animators labored for 318,000 hours. In the coming months, you could create your own version of that marvel, Aquarius. But you’ll need a team to help you, and that team is not yet ready to go. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to get it ready, though.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Piscean businessman Steve Jobs testified that taking LSD was “one of the two or three most important things” he ever did in his life. It opened his mind in ways he felt were crucial to his development. What are the three most important things you’ve ever done, Pisces? I invite you to revisit at least one of them, and see if you can take it to the next step of its power to inspire you. What if it has even more to offer you in your efforts to become the person you want to be?

APRIL 25 | 541.383.0800


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Christopher Robin Milne was the son of author A. A. Milne, who wrote the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. He said there are two ways to navigate through life. Either you “take a bearing on something in the future and steer towards it, or take a bearing on something in the past and steer away from it.” So in his view, “There are those who look ahead and pull and those who look behind and push.” I’m hoping that in the coming weeks and months, you will make a delighted commitment to the first option: taking a bearing on something in the future and steering towards it. I think that approach will inspire you toward the most interesting success.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Love is no assignment for cowards.” That’s a quote attributed to the ancient Roman poet Ovid. What did he mean? Was he foreshadowing the wisdom of pop singer Pat Benatar, who in 1983 told us, “Love is a battlefield”? Was Ovid implying that to succeed in the amorous arts we must be heroic warriors prepared to overcome fears and risk psychological dangers? Probably. But I will also point out that it takes as much courage to create fun, interesting togetherness as it does to wrestle with the problems that togetherness brings. You need just as much bravura and panache to explore the sweet mysteries of intimacy as you do to explore the achy mysteries of intimacy. Keep these thoughts in mind as you marshal your audacity to deepen and expand your best relationships in the coming weeks.


ARIES (March 21-April 19): The Qing Dynasty controlled China from the mid-seventeenth century to the early twentieth century. It was the fifth biggest empire in world history. But eventually it faded, as all mighty regimes do. Revolution came in 1911, forcing the last emperor to abdicate and giving birth to the Republic of China. I’m inclined to think of your life in 2019 as having some similarities to that transition. It’s the end of one era and the beginning of another; a changing of the guard and a passing of the torch. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to be very active in deciding and visualizing the empire you want next.

Don’t forget That Being Anti-Cannabis Pays, Too By Jeremy Dickman





or some attorneys in Deschutes County and elsewhere, land-use applications and appeals are an opportunity to fill their calendar with billable hours. In the case of marijuana land-use applications, if a party opposing such a grow has deep enough pockets and vested appeal rights, the lawyer for an appellant may take a “kitchen sink” approach to filing appeals. During a March 27 meeting of the Deschutes Board of County Commissioners, this strategy was on display. Liz Dickson, an attorney for appellants, spent a half-hour hammering home largely irrelevant objections to an adultuse marijuana farm planned 9 miles east of Bend. The objections she filed on behalf of her client included research regarding the “Alfalfa water table” levels from the mid-1970s through 2017 (ostensibly proving that marijuana grows had disproportionately drained area wells). She also railed against the existing medical marijuana grow’s past code “violations,” each of which were resolved by the applicants. She also characterized the use of a local access road (a privately maintained easement serving multiple property owners) as being, mysteriously, a violation of federal law, and therefore inviting Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act lawsuits. Perhaps Ms. Dickson herself imagines shepherding a RICO lawsuit through the federal courts on behalf of these neighbors. The hearing was further peppered with neighbors objecting – nearly to the volume of a shout—over issues such as crime, vagrancy, traffic and “out of state license plates” in the neighborhood. One witness claimed he’s “clean and sober” and therefore would never have purchased his property if he had known a marijuana farm could have been established so close. Yet these concerns over hobos, threats to sober living and out-of-state traffic are as irrelevant to the text of the Deschutes County Code as Dickson’s speech about the dwindling water table (there’s no way Central Oregon’s nation-topping growth could be draining wells, right?) or potential RICO suits. Do the appellants paying their lawyer know how frivolous—and therefore financially unwise—these arguments are? Progress marches on, nationwide Meanwhile, the 116th United States Congress—and the tidal wave of state reforms across the country—may ultimately be the backbreaker for prohibition. Massachusetts Senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren

(D), along with Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), reintroduced The Strengthening Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States (STATES) Act of 2019 last week. The bill, as it did when initially introduced last summer, has bipartisan support in both houses of Congress, and would allow states to avoid federal interference with their state-legal legislative schemes. There are hurdles for this bill, of course, including some on the liberal side of the aisle. Some complain of a lack of social justice reform. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) said at the bill’s reintroduction that “less than 1 percent of the cannabis industry is owned and operated by people of color. We can do much better than that.” (Lee nevertheless supports the bill.) Then there is the Republican-held Senate. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blocked the bill’s introduction in the previous Congress, and is unlikely to change his mind this go-round. At statehouses in purple, red, and blue states, there is also positive change. New Mexico is the latest state to decriminalize marijuana possession and Guam’s territorial governor signed legislation making the recreational use, sale and production of marijuana legal. Utah’s Republican governor signed a bill allowing those with misdemeanor marijuana convictions to apply to have their records expunged. In North Dakota and South Carolina, Republican governors signed bills legalizing industrial hemp. Still, law enforcement across much of the country hasn’t received the memo. Marijuana possession arrests have increased each of the past three years, nationwide, and those arrests disproportionately target minorities. The ACLU reported in 2013 that black people are nearly four times as likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than whites, despite similar usage rates. A similar study in Massachusetts showed the same. Oregon, however, saw marijuana possession arrests overall drop about 50 percent between 2014 and 2016. While most Democratic candidates for president support marijuana legalization of some kind, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) has taken the most pronounced step to address the racial disparity in arrests with the Marijuana Justice Act. The bill would de-schedule marijuana and expunge all past marijuana convictions. It would also be a hit to the private prison industry, so as always, watch the campaign donor lists when you see politicians railing against its enactment.
