It’s that time again—time when we roll out one big, giant issue dedicated to the winners in Central Oregon’s longest-running and most popular readers’ poll: the Best of Central Oregon! From all of us at the Source Weekly, we’re thrilled to introduce readers to many old favorites, along with the new and emerging winners out there. Every “Best Of” gives us the chance to connect with the many hardworking and dedicated people of the area, out there doing their thing. Cheers to you, and to the thousands of readers who voted for them! And because putting out an issue of this size—rivaling our largest issues in the Source Weekly’s 25-year history—doesn’t come without a giant slice of effort on our part, I’ll steal some ink here offering my gratitude for our team: to sales reps Ashley Sarvis and Ban Tat for their humor and excellent customer “Sarvis” skills, and new addition Trinity Bradle for the boundless enthusiasm she brings to clients; to reporters Jack Harvel and Chris Williams for their hard work, organizational skills and their ability to roll with my advice about “tight writing is good writing,” and grammar-nerd missives; to Bend-famous film writer Jared Rasic and the other freelance contributors who keep ideas fresh, to copy editor Richard Sitts for his steady, experienced hand at the end of this production process; to Spanish translator Jessica Sanchez-Millar for her speedy work helping serve the Spanish-speaking community, to designer Nathan Elston for rocking out the 1 million (OK, almost) ads in this paper; to production manager/art director and overall goddess Jessie Czopek for her patience and mad skills in keeping this ship running tight—and of course, to founders Aaron and Angela Switzer for having the foresight, back in 1997, to know that Bend was bound to be a “boomtown,” and definitely, without a doubt (yet against all odds around the state of newspapering), needed its own “alt weekly” to enliven the community. A community newspaper like ours doesn’t survive without a constant loop of support from the community, and so, during this “Best Of 2022,” we say that you, who continue to read, advertise, join our membership program, Source Insider, or who otherwise support this effort, are the Best of Central Oregon.

As we put out this Best of Central Oregon issue this week, we like to stop and smell the roses, so to speak. It’s easy to get lost in the entrenched pessimism that is the mood of the day, while all around us there are ideas and solutions that simply need time to play out. This past week’s governor’s debate between the Republican, Democratic and unaffiliated candidates in the race was something of a window into the moment we find ourselves living in. With Gov. Kate Brown term-limited, there is no incumbent in this race, giving each candidate an opportunity to talk endlessly about how bad things are in Oregon. Housing shortages are putting families on the streets. Inflation is stretching budgets. Forest fires represent an existential threat. Crime is out of control. (In fact, a recent analysis by OPB found that only in Portland were crime rates up.) And so on. It’s ironic to hear this from any of the three candidates, because in all of them—Republican Christine Drazan, Democrat Tina Kotek and former Democrat-turned-independent candidate Betsy Johnson—we have leaders who have recently served in the very same legislature that has had the opportunity to tackle some of these problems. Of course, Drazan will argue that her minority status has meant none of her ideas have seen the light of day. Johnson can waffle between her record in the legislature while also distancing herself from the foibles of either party. Kotek argues that she’s been incredibly effective in solving issues around housing. And on that last point we arrive at what is perhaps the most challenging part about politics and the effort to improve the lot of people’s lives in Oregon: it takes time. Kotek’s leadership in converting motels into shelters and in altering the rules around single-family zoning may very well have the intended effect of getting more people housed, but that effect will not truly be felt until far after this election season— and heck, even after the two terms she could very well serve.

We want our leaders to be effective, and we want it now. That’s just the nature of the busy, over-stimulated society we live in. Still, good ideas are complex. Great ideas require good planning and public input and adequate funding and the ability to jump through the regulatory hoops put in place to protect people’s health and safety. Reading about the houselessness crisis on NextDoor, for example, can lead one to believe that Bend is a hellscape from which there is no point of return. Meanwhile, local leaders—often vilified and overgeneralized on social media—are plodding through the plans necessary to create long-term solutions. The Bend City Council recently received criticism for rolling out a plan on how to clear unsanctioned camps. Before doing so, there was no plan at all. Which one would locals rather have: a plan intended to plod through the steps necessary to clear camps to get people off the streets all together, or anarchy where, in a town where housing prices have nearly doubled in two years, the “free market” sets a more inhumane path? The same city councilors who are making this plan will undoubtedly catch hell from some for doing so—but they know that doing something, creating a plan and seeing it forward, may also see them lose the next election. And yet they do it anyway—because really, the most admirable politicians should be those who put their heads down and do the work that needs to be done, regardless of how it plays for their next campaign. We have lots of hope for how our region can be better and can better serve the many people who need help. Much of it, though, comes down to being able to spend the time it takes to understand complex issues. Good ideas are out there—but a surface-level understanding can lead to surface-level depression about the state of the world. Dig in and find the layers. Give things time to play out.

Voters in Oregon’s Congressional District 2 have a choice. Voters can vote for Dr. Joe Yetter, who supports freedom – *Freedom to make your personal health-care choices, including obtaining contraceptives, without government interference. *Freedom to travel to exercise your right to get healthcare.

*Freedom from fear of gun violence. *Freedom to have your vote counted. *Freedom to live in a world not threatened by climate chaos. Or they can vote for Cliff Bentz, who voted against every one of those freedoms. Yetter is a retired military doctor who now has a farm in Douglas County. He will put the interests of his constituents first. He has already lived up to his oath to support and defend our Constitution. Bentz had his chance to prove he was worthy of sitting in Congress.

How many immigrants that work the land will have access to own the land with the same rights as the “first-class farmers” in the area?

The exploitative Anglo-centered capitalistic economic system the world lives under will never be able to do what Indigenous communities can. Let’s address drought at the source!

Editor’s note: Reader Steve Eberhard read “My Time with Tom” and then went back in time to read former pro skier Dan Mooney’s first feature story from November 2019, “Moondog Goes Pro.” Eberhard then wrote in to share his own memories from ski days gone by: Great read, this was back in my heyday downhill and XC skiing 80+ days/ year, would get up and go skiing, load milk trucks in the afternoon then to rugby practice in the evening two nights a week; riding my 10 speed from Redmond to Sisters on the weekends, playing basketball there on the city court with friends and then ride back to Redmond... it was all good until I blew out my knee skiing the old school 6’ moguls on Thunderbird. Ah crap, I guess I need to go to college now! All the characters and places in this story were my idols and dreams partially came, mostly come true. I was sooo envious of Spider Sabich, great skier and he was with uber hot Claudine Longet although that didn’t work out well in the end... Thanks! —Steve Eberhard via bendsource.com

statement. It seems as though they have an agenda and are not listening to their constituents and community. Proven when they passed the “Shelter Code Amendments” despite a majority of Bend residents’ disapproval. I met with Chris Piper for the first time who announced his candidacy for Bend mayor position. Upon meeting him, I found him to be a great listener, surprisingly likeminded and I got the sense that he was proud to be a Bend resident. I was quite surprised as I voted for his opponent as he holds an (R). In retrospect, my votes were based on being traumatized by Trump and how the Republican party no longer resembles the party I know. Perhaps independents and Democrats like myself voted for a slate of Democrats not vetting them although they ran on platforms we resonated with. Chris Piper actually represented a lot of the same values, beliefs and ideas on current issues and I support him. One thing that struck me from our conversation is him stressing how important it is to leave your party hat and agenda at the door and represent for the greater good of the community; one must be a good listener and not have personal agendas when dealing with community issues. Vet candidates and not just vote party line. I will certainly leave my party hat at the mailbox when I cast my vote. —Nicole Moore Perullo

Dan Mooney’s piece was so enjoyable to read, that I’m keeping it for many re-reads. Please encourage him to write more of his recollections from his interesting life for publication! —Donna C. McLean

Controversial Former Principal Joins School Board WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / AUGUST 11, 2022 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

The Redmond School Board appointed a former Summit High School principal who some parents accuse of pushing Christianity on students By Jack Harvel

O

n July 27 the Redmond School Board appointed Alice DeWittie to serve the remainder of Jill Cumming’s terms after she resigned, citing personal reasons. DeWittie and four other finalists had been whittled down from a list of 24 applicants. DeWittie is a former principal of Summit High School, departing in 2017 after six years in the role. At the time, DeWittie was involved in developing small “strand” high schools and was a leading candidate to serve as a principal at what would become The Academy, The Bulletin reported in 2017. She faced some controversy over the Christian overtones in an email sent to the private Seven Peaks School from her personal email and in a blog post in Pneuma33, a faith-based creative agency that consults clients on web optimization, brand strategy and marketing. “God is shifting from direct leadership to shared Presence at 7 Peaks. Being His light means walking in forgiveness and not revenge, moving in the direction of love, peace, and joy not fear, anger, and gossip,” she wrote in an email addressed to a Seven Peaks staff member. The since-removed blog post, recovered via web archiving tools, titled Engaging Our Nation’s Children, outlines a model of education that advocates for more individualized education—informed by DeWittie’s Christian faith. “Then one day God said, ‘Everything you have physical responsibility for you have spiritual responsibility for as well.’ I had physical responsibility for this school, therefore I had spiritual responsibility,” DeWittie wrote in the blog post. Bend-La Pine Schools investigated DeWittie over a complaint made by Stewart Fritchman, who said DeWittie promoted creation theory to his child’s classroom. The investigation concluded DeWittie hadn’t violated district policies, but regardless, four days after Fritchman sent his email, DeWittie announced her resignation without going into detail as to why.

Since leaving public education DeWittie’s started 511 Impacts, a Christian blog that says its mission, “is to equip the Body of Christ for leadership through encouragement and building one another up.” She also wrote a book called “The Exchange: The Parable of the Seed” that derives Christian lessons from short fictional stories. “Jesus taught in parables, allegories that illustrate the truth of the Kingdom. Creating a world where these truths are explored in a different setting, The Exchange introduces us to the Heart of the Father,” a description of the book says on Amazon. During DeWittie’s interview with the Redmond School Board she listed her 20 years of experience in public education and experience working with boards as her biggest motivators seeking the seat. DeWittie has more experience in public schools than her competition, serving as an assessment, curriculum and instruction specialist, building administrator and principal. Her application mirrors the individualized approach to teaching outlined in Engaging Our Nation’s Children, without the overt Christian themes, stating, “Not all students thrive in a comprehensive model, Redmond is big enough to provide alternative options for

“When people come to a board, I work with them and do the best I can to bring them together to create a single voice and understand that we all have to follow the laws and the rules of the state of Oregon.”

students. These would include those developed by the district, charter school options and support for homeschool families.” Superintendent Charan Cline said he wasn’t aware of the controversy surrounding DeWittie until after she was selected as a finalist. He doesn’t foresee any issues stemming from DeWittie’s appointment. “There’s 100 different reasons people run for boards, right,” Cline said. “When people come to a board, I work with them and do the best I can to bring them together to create a single voice and understand that we all have to follow the laws and the rules of the state of Oregon.” Only one person appeared to oppose DeWittie’s appointment on July 27. Scott Brees opposed the appointment based on a series of antagonistic episodes he experienced while setting up Summit High School’s robotics team. He says her religion doesn’t factor into his complaint. “Those are completely irrelevant to me. I’m referring very specifically to supervisory managerial and leadership ability,” Brees said. He added that he believes the Redmond School District failed to adequately communicate the vacancy and appointment. Cline, however, says the process worked both as outlined in the school’s board policies, and in attracting a wide range of candidates. “We advertised widely. The sessions for selecting people were held in public,” Cline said. “He may not have been aware of it because it is a Redmond issue not a Bend issue. So, I don’t know that I know what he would have wanted different in terms of transparency. We did have a huge slate of candidates, that’s the most candidates I’ve ever seen for something like that.” DeWittie did not respond to a request for comment. Her term expires on June 30, 2023.

Cedar Creek Fire Engulfs Over 3,000 Acres

Harsh terrain keeps firefighters away, and containment lines have yet to be set By Jack Harvel

The smoke from the Cedar Creek Fire seeped into Bend over the past two weeks, which has seen two days of moderately unhealthy air quality.

The fire has been a source for the smoke seeping into Bend, which at times tipped the region in “moderate” air quality, according to the Air Quality Index. Moderate is typically acceptable for most people, but could cause health concerns for people who are prone to respiratory symptoms.

Not-So-Great Resignation

A new survey sheds light on pandemic-era employment trends By Jack Harvel

A

n Oregon Values and Beliefs Center survey found that 62% of the state’s workforce had been influenced by COVID, including moving to remote work (20%), receiving unemployment insurance (18%) and becoming self-employed (12%). The survey, collected between July 8-16, found the move toward remote work is most prevalent among high-earners, with 34% of six-figure workers changing to at-home work compared to 18% of those making less. Oregonians most prefer a hybrid model, with 41% responding more favorably than the 26% who’d rather work from home and the 19% who want to work on-site. Over one in four Oregonians quit their job in the last two years in a time dubbed the Great Resignation. Oregon’s quit rate, the percent of people who leave a job in each month, has hovered around 3% over the past four months, levels that were anomalous before the pandemic disrupted the economy. The common reasons for quitting are disrespectful work environments and low pay, at 43% and 41% respectively. Oregonians are more likely to cite the high cost of living rather than an influx of public benefits in causing the Great Resignation. “If employers were willing to raise wages to a living level, people would jump at the chance to get those jobs. Since they have a bit of a cushion now, people looking for work can afford to be slightly pickier rather than desperate,” a Deschutes County woman responded in the survey.

Oregonians reported their preference for in-person, remote and hybrid work.

he Cedar Creek Fire ignited on Aug. 1 after a lightning storm touched down about 3 miles west of Waldo Lake on the Willamette National Forest, about 40 miles southwest of Bend. The fire quickly burned up the heavy timber and as of Aug. 8 it’s 3,234 acres. On Aug. 4 the Willamette National Forest closed the entire Waldo Lake Wilderness area, dispatching patrols to corral campers and other recreationists out of the area. Since discovering the fire, firefighters have had difficulty combating it due to the terrain. “Crews assigned to the fire were pulled back for a number of reasons: there was no reliable safe access to the fire, there were no escape routes for firefighters on the ground and so far, there are no apparent natural barriers available for firefighters to stop the fire, especially without available air support,” Willamette National Forest wrote in a press release. Some 236 people are working on stopping the fire as of Aug. 8, and crews are working on finding containment lines and developing a plan to control it. On August 8 the fire was 0% contained. Lower temperatures and higher relative humidity aren't expected to significantly modify fire behavior until Aug. 9. “Relative humidity will fall low enough to slow most fire spread. Fire behavior will still consist of creeping, smoldering, and some surface fire with occasional single tree torching. Minimal fire spread expected,” a report from Willamette National Forest says. Thursday’s expected lower humidity had the potential to allow the fire to spread where there’s more fuel, but some smoldering and slow-moving fire spread is likely. The estimated containment date of the Cedar Creek Fire is Oct. 1.

El incendio de Cedar Creek abarca más de 3,000 hectáreas El terreno mantiene alejados a los bomberos y aún no se han marcado las líneas de contención

E

l incendio de Cedar Creek comenzó el 1 de agosto después de que un relámpago tocará terreno a unas 3 millas hacia el oeste de Waldo Lake que se encuentra en el bosque nacional de Willamette, a unas 40 millas al suroeste de Bend. El fuego quemó rápidamente la madera pesada y al 8 de agosto ya está abarcando 3,234 hectáreas. El 4 de agosto, el bosque nacional de Willamette cerró por completo la zona silvestre de Waldo Lake y envió patrullas para sacar de ahí a los campistas y a las personas que hacían actividades de recreo. Desde que se supo del incendio, a los bomberos les ha costado trabajo combatirlo debido al terreno en que se encuentra. “Las cuadrillas asignadas al incendio fueron retiradas por varias razones: no había acceso seguro y confinable al incendio, no habían rutas de escape para los bomberos localizados en el terreno y hasta el momento no hay barreras naturales disponibles para que los bomberos apaguen el incendio, sobre todo sin existir asistencia aérea disponible,” escribió en un comunicado de prensa el bosque nacional de Willamette.

A partir del 8 de agosto unas 236 personas están trabajando para detener el fuego y las cuadrillas están trabajando para encontrar líneas de contención y establecer un plan para controlar el incendio. Al 8 de agosto el incendio estaba contenido al 0%. No se espera que las temperaturas bajas y la humedad alteren el comportamiento del incendio hasta el 9 de agosto. “La humedad bajara lo suficiente para retardar la mayor parte de la propagación del fuego. El comportamiento del fuego seguirá siendo arrastrante, ardiente y algunas zonas se quemaran superficialmente con la quema ocasional de un solo árbol. Se espera un mínimo de propagación del fuego,” reportó el bosque nacional de Willamette. La baja humedad esperada para el día jueves tenía la posibilidad de permitir que el fuego se propague en donde hay más combustible, pero es probable que se propague algo de fuego ardiente y lento. La fecha estimada de contención del incendio en Cedar Creek es el 1 de octubre. El incendio ha sido el origen del humo creciente en Bend, el cual en momentos llevó a la región a tener una

Desert Oasis

Redmond’s first village-style houseless shelter is getting by with a little help from its friends By Jack Harvel YouthBuild

11 VOLUME 26 ISSUE 32 / AUGUST 11, 2022 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY / BEST OF ISSUE

A

t the recent Deschutes County Fair, one building was unlike the others. Tucked between a pool with a high dive and the livestock complex, a small “village style” shelter was brought in along with information on the various efforts to start what’s been called managed camps, village-style shelters and tiny home villages. Oasis Village, Central Oregon Villages, St. Vincent de Paul and others from the patchwork of houseless service providers manned the tent, fielding questions about the projects. Central Oregon’s first village-style shelter opened in November with Central Oregon Veteran’s Village; now, at least three others are in the works. Oasis Village Oasis Village started as the Redmond Village Team under Jericho Road, a nonprofit that brings food, emergency assistance and housing resources to unhoused people in Redmond. It envisioned a village like Rogue Retreat’s Hope Village in Jackson County to address Redmond’s rising houseless population. The booth at the fair featured a structure that will eventually become one of Oasis Village’s 10-12 single-bedroom units upon opening, and possibly as many as 40 by completion. Redmond’s houseless population is less visible than Bend’s, but that’s changing. Last year tents started popping up along Highway 97 through town for the first time. Redmond’s more typical unhoused person is living in a recreation vehicle east of Redmond’s industrial area on Deschutes County and Bureau of Land Management property. “There’s probably on the order of 150, plus or minus 50. But somewhere between 100-200 individuals that live in the junipers,” said Bob Bohac, chair of Oasis Village. “But they of course come into Redmond for all their activities: shopping, going to St. Vincent’s food pantry, clothing, doctor’s appointments, they’re all coming into Redmond.” Living in hard-to-reach places provides a challenge to houseless services. Outreach to smaller campsites scattered across public lands means it’s more difficult

YouthBuild students constructed the first unit of Oasis Village’s shelters.

keeping track of people, more arduous trips to deliver essential supplies and a more entrenched population that is accustomed to an off-the-grid lifestyle. “A lot of those people have been out there longer, have become self-sufficient, and in many cases, through bad experiences trying to get help but not getting help, have become more or less settled into that lifestyle,” said James Cook, vice-chair of Oasis Village. “The challenges we’re going to face is convincing those people that this is a realistic opportunity to improve their situation. because a number of them will have

failed at other attempts before.” Another huge barrier to getting people in programs in Redmond is the fear of theft. Every trip to town could end in the theft of their property. Bohac said shortly after moving to Central Oregon in 2013 he volunteered for a Shepherd’s House warming center stationed in Redmond churches. Despite outreach informing houseless people there’d be a warm place to stay on cold nights, zero people took them up on it. “I thought that that would be a very natural way to get people who are in the camps into safer quarters, at cont. on p 13

The village display at the Deschutes County Fair included a shelter that’ll be used for Oasis Village, and information from a patchwork of service providers in Central Oregon. Jack Harvel

St. Vincent de Paul already built 10 bedroom structures like the ones being used by Oasis Village: it’s expecting to open in September.

housing. And one way to combat that is to be able to go out there and do it. Construction is one of the leading fields in Central Oregon. And this is a natural funnel for young people to get these jobs skills and go into this overarching field.” YouthBuild students built the shelter displayed at the fair, expecting to finish up the interior in the next month. Oasis Village is hoping YouthBuild can make a shelter every month, and materials are already acquired to build the second shelter. Redmond High School’s Construction Technology classes are also chipping in, expecting to build a unit or two per semester during the 2022-2023 school year. “They’d really like to have something that has the plans, and students can go from the electronic plans to seeing it actually built,” Bohac said. “These partnerships along the way have been a blessing, we are doing as much as we can trying to involve the partners with community members, whether it’s Rotary, Kiwanis, VFW, doctors, churches—we try to do as much local fundraising as we can.” Oasis Village is funded through three grants totaling just under $1 million. Bohac says it’s using that money to hire staff to oversee the camp, administrative roles and grant writers. The free labor from YouthBuild and Redmond High School and a free 2-acre parcel ceded by Deschutes County have been helpful getting the project off the ground, but the program will need more self-sustaining funding sources once the program begins, he said. There have been some hurdles to opening its doors, most recently with its need to bring infrastructure to the worksite. Its most recent timeline is less optimistic than previous estimates of 9-12 months after securing a site, mirroring setbacks other village shelters

are facing. Delays Meanwhile, another village is almost ready for its opening day. All 10 housing units at St. Vincent De Paul are already constructed, and the only needs for development are the central community building and an upgrade to the power line that can fuel the electronic gates and security system. The original opening day was set for March, but the electrical issues delayed the village months back. It’s now projected to open in September. “The program director can’t occupy his [on site] house until we get the inspection, which we can’t get until we have power,” said Gary Hewitt, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul. St. Vincent’s Place was in the planning phase through summer of 2021 and has been able to break ground faster than other villages since St. Vincent de Paul owns the land the village sits on. The program is catering to non-chronic houseless people. “We can’t help the mentally ill; we aren’t set up to do that here. There is a place for that, I’m sure, but it’s not here. We need to help people who are just struggling and almost there but can’t get there,” Hewitt said. Central Oregon Villages, another shelter that’ll cater to women over 65 in its first round of applicants, faced several setbacks when acquiring land. A proposal to create a shelter on Ninth Street got thrown out after intense public scrutiny, leading them to seek other accommodations. Now, the village will lease land adjacent to Desert Streams Church on 27th Street in Bend. It’s in phase one of a contract with the City of Bend to conduct public outreach, and will be able to break ground once a report on public outreach is accepted by the City.

least in cold nights in the wintertime. Not a single one of them came,” Bohac said. Bohac shared the story of Medford-based Rogue Retreat staff doing interviews at Redmond’s winter shelter on a low-population night with only around 19 individuals, finding an interesting fact about who was there. “There was no one at the shelter that lived in the camps,” he said. “There were people who might live within trailers on the streets of Redmond, but there are really distinct subpopulations.” People living in the camps are a population Oasis Village hopes will take a chance on services. Accommodations include a parking area where people can stash RVs and belongings while going through the program and the ability for couples to apply. But with over a year until its anticipated opening in November 2023, Cook said they’re avoiding putting up too many barriers to entry. “We do want to be a low-barrier shelter. Which, right now the amount of low-barrier shelters that’s available to someone on a stable basis, as opposed to just day-to-day or night tonight, is very limited in Redmond, and even in Central Oregon,” Cook said. The low barrier to enter is matched by a higher barrier to remain. No drugs or alcohol will be allowed on the premises. Disrespectful behavior to staff or neighbors won’t be tolerated, and any violence will get someone kicked from the program. People will also have to follow individually tailored plans set up by a caseworker, meeting goals for things like employment, rehabilitation and applying for benefits. “From the experience of other groups that are running shelter villages, they generally find that people take three months to about two years to transition through the program into something that is more stable,” Cook said. That could include another transitional program or stable housing, something made difficult by the lack of affordable housing in Central Oregon. The full range of services will rely on other nonprofits tackling the same issues. A common notion heard from houseless service providers is that they’re just one piece of a larger coalition seeking to end the houseless crisis—a notion Cook echoes. “We’re one part of that work, but we’re working with other people to ensure that that whole continuum is available,” Cook said. The Whole Puzzle Zoom out and look at the whole puzzle and you’ll find that indeed, no houseless service provider works alone. Oasis Village lists Hayden Homes, Rogue Retreat, Jericho Road, Heart of Oregon Corps and more as partners, but truly there’s even more interaction with a range of businesses and nonprofits. Bohac says Hayden Homes has been invaluable with site planning and providing designs for the shelters. Jericho Road does outreach and helps spread the word at the camps. Rogue Retreat provides knowledge of running a village shelter. And Heart of Oregon Corps and its offshoot YouthBuild will construct up to 15 units. “We’re able to provide job training and skills within Central Oregon, but really giving back to Redmond’s community,” said YouthBuild program director Tanner Roehne. “A lot of our youth are coming from the Redmond area. So, this is just a natural platform with our training center located in Redmond.” YouthBuild trains about 45 students a year in construction and child and youth development, leaving students with entry level certifications needed to enter those fields. The program also provides credit recovery for students in high school or GED programs. Its focus on the construction and child care industry is a response to community needs. “Construction started off as our main focus,” Roehne said. “It’s an identified need of affordable

Get to Know Something Dirty

Courtesy of the band

Something Dirty has a special sound not head much in these parts—check them out soon!

S

ince starting a band around 18 months ago, Something Dirty has been on an awesome streak of song releases. With Gregg Swanson and Jesse Fish on guitar/vocals, Dan Scroggin on drums and Chad Crowell on bass, Something Dirty brings back a taste of ‘80s and ‘90s rock that walks a space somewhere between R.E.M and Pearl Jam. With a sound one doesn’t hear around Central Oregon too often, Something Dirty is bringing something new to the scene here—and they’re having a blast doing it. “After the show last night we were talking and laughing, saying, ‘we were far from perfect tonight but we had fun.’ And that’s what it’s all about,” says bassist Chad Crowell. This weekend the band plays at the Crater Lake Spirits tasting room in Tumalo. We caught up with bassist Chad Crowell last week. Read more about Something Dirty below. Source Weekly: When did you start the band and how did you come together? Chad Crowell: We were really born out of COVID. We’ve probably been together for about 18 months. I actually went looking toward the end of lockdown to get out and get creative out of the house. I’d personally been playing bass since I was in my 20s. So I thought it was time to find a band. There happened to be a perfect Craigslist ad at the time, put out by Greg and another guitarist who isn’t in the band anymore, and they had been writing music for

maybe six months at the time. So I went for a hangout and we had really good synergy personality-wise. SW: In the band’s bio you list inspirations like Pearl Jam, Dinosaur Jr. and the Pixies. What is it about those bands you think you gravitate toward? CC: It’s all music we grew up on. All of the other three guys have played in bands before, and Greg and Jesse played in bands that did original music and really at the time were playing right in line with those bands. It’s something we all identify with. SW: You’ve put out 12 songs already in the last 11 months, which is really productive. Do you have any favorites so far? CC: We all definitely circulate around a half-dozen songs. The original favorite for all of us is called “Superman,” which was maybe the first song we looked at like, ‘that’s pretty good!’ It’s a little monotonous, but in a good way. Hypnotic. It gets you in a groove. The thing about our songs is that they are all very personal to Greg and Jessie. They’ve both been through things in their life and the songs represent what they went through. When you listen and feel the music you can see that it’s an emotional release for them. SW: I really like “Folding Chairs At The Salt Palace.” It’s a pretty epic-sounding instrumental. How did that song come together? CC: The title of that one is great. I can’t remember the entire story but it reminded Greg somehow of being at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City. That kind of

bright riff that starts it out was really the foundation of this song. That’s another early one. It didn’t come together really until Jesse joined the band. He comes in at a certain point with this driving distorted riff that brings it into a mainstream rock-feel. SW: With all these songs out do you have any plans for an album? CC: We are certainly planning on recording over winter. I think we’ll stick to something around six songs. We don’t want there to be any filler. So that’s in the works. As somebody who is new to the band atmosphere itself, and just happened to find what I feel is the right band for me. It’s exciting to see that people are enjoying our music. For me it’s a long time-realization of a dream come true. SW: Are you excited to kick off Crater Lake Spirits’ summer series next weekend? CC: Absolutely! We’ve got four gigs this month, one at Bevel next Wednesday. Then this one at Crater Lake Spirits and one at On Tap. We’re really looking forward to this one because it was one of the early ones we booked. It almost validated that we were onto something. For us we’re really thankful for this opportunity.

Mt. Joy hits the Hayden Homes stage Aug. 13 By Alan Sculley

19 Courtesy Mt. Joy

Armed with a new album and expanding catalog of songs, Mt. Joy is happy to perform more diverse and unique set lists.

E

ver since Mt. Joy made a big splash in the music world with “Silver Lining,” the single from the band’s 2018 self-titled debut album that became a No. 1 hit at adult alternative radio, the band has been widely labeled as a folk-rock act and frequently compared to The Lumineers. Mt. Joy singer/guitarist Matt Quinn will even allow that “Silver Lining” sounded a little like The Lumineers, with its strummy folk-ish verses and stacked harmonies in the chorus. And the fact that Mt. Joy opened for The Lumineers on that group’s early 2020 arena tour probably reinforced the connection. But Quinn is ready to see Mt. Joy’s music viewed through something much broader than a folk-rock/ Lumineers lens. “I love The Lumineers. I got to meet them. They’re lovely people. I think the music they make is fantastic,” Quinn noted during a late-July phone interview. “Not wanting to be compared to them has nothing to do with not liking their music. I think it’s just about comparison. I’ve always felt like it was about comparison. “I get where it came from and everything, but I think it’s a bit lazy. Our big hit song, sort of, I can see where the Lumineers thing comes in,” he said. “But it didn’t even really represent the (first) record, I think, that well. If you go back and listen to the first record, the other songs were pretty different. So I don’t know if our whole goal is to avoid comparisons, but it is nice to start to feel like we’re coming into our own and the music we’re making fits the music we want to be making.” The band’s newly released third album, “Orange Blood,” could go a long way in changing perceptions about Mt. Joy’s music. There is still a folk element to songs such as “Roly Poly,” “Don’t It Feel Good” and the title track, but they come with some gauzy atmospherics, synthetic beats and treated guitar tones that push the songs

outside of the folk realm. Elsewhere Mt. Joy get even more adventurous with the sonics. “Johnson Song” has a distorted lead guitar that gives the tune a freaky edge. “Lemon Tree” takes on a Beatles-esque psychedelic pop experience when it kicks into a pair of instrumental segments full of fuzzed up tones. “Evergreen,” meanwhile, is a catchy, nervy rocker with shimmery guitars and a driving beat. The sonic creativity generally enhances the songs, but what still stands out most is the ability of Quinn and his bandmates to craft striking and inviting melodies. Quinn got started writing for “Orange Blood” soon after the tour opening for The Lumineers wrapped in March 2020. That was not the original plan. Mt. Joy had its second album, “Rearrange Us,” ready for release and was eyeing an extensive round of touring in 2020 to support the album. But then the pandemic hit, upending those big plans, although the band went ahead and released “Rearrange Us” rather than making their fans wait any longer for new music. Pivoting into songwriting mode was the only real option for Quinn once the world started shutting down. “Right when the pandemic started, I was in New York City. I was stuck in a studio apartment and actually my girlfriend had a kind of busted acoustic guitar, but I didn’t even have my guitar,” Quinn said. “But I had (her) guitar and it (songwriting) was all there was to do. We were literally quarantined and genuinely terrified of interacting with people. So we were making music, and yeah, it was freeing in a way to have an outlet like that. I feel really, really fortunate that that was my job.” Quinn and his girlfriend didn’t stay in New York City for long. The city became an epicenter of the pandemic, and feeling it had become dangerous to be there, they decided to move to Quinn’s former hometown of

Philadelphia. After that, Quinn and his songwriting partner in Mt. Joy, guitarist Sam Cooper, rented a small barn near Philadelphia and started convening for near-daily writing and recording sessions. Most of “Orange Blood” was written there, and then it was time to hit the studio. So Quinn and Cooper joined the rest of the band— keyboardist Jackie Miclau, bassist Michael Byrnes and drummer Sotoris Eliopoulos—and producer Caleb Nelson in Los Angeles, where the album was completed. Quinn said the new songs—even with the studio-crafted sonics—translate well to the live stage. And the “Orange Blood” material is bringing Mt. Joy closer to achieving the kind of live experience the band has wanted to create all along. “One of the real amazing things about the new album is it’s really allowed our sets to be more diverse,” Quinn said. “Before this album we had, what, like I don’t know, 26 songs, which of course, you don’t play every single one. You get into a set list problem where you’re trying to change it up as much as possible, and we would really like to become a band that plays, that has unique shows. And our new album has really allowed that to happen. It’s set up some cool jams. It’s really made the live show more dynamic, I think.”

WELCOME TO BOOMTOWN! “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” - Charles Dickens, “A Tale of Two Cities.” Last year, our Best of Central Oregon theme was “Rising from the Ashes.” This year, it’s a new era, and it seems the phoenix has risen, indeed. This year’s theme is “Boomtown,” described in the Britannica Dictionary as “a town that experiences a sudden growth in business and population: a booming town.” If you’ve been feeling that “boomtown” vibe this summer, you wouldn’t be alone. You might feel it by the numbers of people you have to wade through to visit a shop downtown. You might feel it in the lines outside your favorite food cart. You might also feel it in the housing prices or traffic. But those are just part of the story.

As we put out this next edition of the Best of Central Oregon, we’re aiming to focus on the “best of times” that come from being a Boomtown. There are more people, yes—but that also means a proliferation of new ideas, fresh perspectives… more artists, more makers, more change-makers, more diversity… and we could go on. Thanks to Bend’s “Zoomtown” status, more people than ever can make Bend their home, all while staying connected to towns and businesses all over the world. Most of the year, we splash plenty of ink in these pages talking about the things that need improving and the ways Central Oregon can grow into the best version of itself. We’ll do that again, over and over—but for now, let’s have a little fun reveling in the wins for the many businesses that make our Boomtown so great. Cheers to all the winners!

Who votes? Thousands of people vote in a whopping 200+ categories in our poll. New categories! This year, like most years, we’re adding new categories while retiring a few others. Among the new ones: Best Breakfast Sandwich, Best Eggs Benedict, Best Mac n’ Cheese, and more specialty categories for Redmond, Sisters and Sunriver. Let’s party! The Source Weekly is turning 25 this summer, and to celebrate that AND the Best Of winners, we’re throwing a party! Join us for a free event Wed., Aug. 10 from 6:30 to 9pm (winners are invited earlier for a special fete for their accomplishments). Join us at the Deschutes Historical Museum for free music and live entertainment!

Best New Restaurant BOSA FOOD & DRINK By Donna Britt About this time last year we were telling you about a new neighborhood place on Galveston in Bend created in the image of a traditional Italian osteria. BOSA Food & Drink was on a mission to be an inviting place where family and friends gather to eat often. Mission accomplished! BOSA has been voted Best New Restaurant 2022 by Source Weekly readers. Fresh pastas along with other French and Mediterranean dishes, seasonally driven using the best ingredients available, along with an extensive wine list and creative cocktail selections, have made BOSA a go-to spot on Bend’s west side. House-made focaccia bread, mouthwatering Bigoli “Cacio e Pepe,” a monstrous 40-ounce bone-in ribeye, and daily specials are just a few of the menu favorites. Chefs Nate King and Bill Dockter, co-owners/operators of BOSA, met in a Colorado resort town years ago and started dreaming up their own version of a neighborhood eatery. King and Dockter had this to say upon learning the news of being voted Best New Restaurant: “After pursuing and finally securing our dream location in Bend back in February 2020, our excitement was halted by the COVID pandemic. We were able to work with our landlord and weather the storm and emerged as a new restaurant on August 1, 2021. We are overwhelmed by the love and support that we have received from the community and our neighborhood. We are humbled by the awards that we have received and feel that this is a reflection upon our staff’s hard work and dedication to our concept. Thank you, Bend!!”

By Nicole Vulcan Biting into the Crazy Tuna Roll at Maki Maki Sushi is like a little round piece of heaven. I’m a fan of spicy stuff, so I’m not shy when cart owner and sushi chef Adam Pan suggests this spicy roll as the one to try at his food cart at The Lot on Bend’s west side. With spicy tuna inside and more seared pepper tuna on top of the roll— plus spicy ponzu sauce and jalapeno, it’s got it going on in the spice department, but it’s nothing unmanageable, and the whole roll is gone before I know what happened. Maybe this experience of seeing your food disappear before your consciousness can catch up is why readers of the Source Weekly have voted this cart the Best New Food Cart in Bend in 2022. Pan and his family opened the cart in January 2022, settling on Bend to raise their sons after spending a couple decades running kitchens in New York. While Pan is a native of Fujian, China, his many years of training at Japanese restaurants have given him a chance to hone the craft, and to bring a mix of “old favorites” as well as new surprises. While Central Oregonians have a lot of options when it comes to sushi these days, this one is definitely worth a visit. Congrats to this new arrival for its win in Best of Central Oregon!

Best Bagel BIG-O-BAGELS By Chris Williams A staple bagel spot is an essential element for any town. There’s a hole missing from a town without one (sorry, had to). Bend has given rise to quite a few spots that folks swear by, but one has reigned supreme for almost 30 years. Since starting out at its Galveston Avenue location in 1994, Big-O-Bagels has been on a mission to provide the best bagels to Bend. Bendites have responded and as a result Big-O has found enough success to open up three locations across town, dishing out countless bagels and rising to notoriety—and consistently being voted the best bagel of Bend since the Source started its poll in 1997. “Our success is in serving delicious, real food that is simple and unassuming… Our focus is on the belief that everyone should be able to afford a delicious breakfast or lunch made with quality ingredients and still have money left in their wallet.” Noël Reiner, owner of Big-O-Bagels, explained to me regarding aspects of how the company has found success. There are not many places still in town where one can go to get a filling meal for under $10. Here, breakfast is still less than 7 bucks. Big-O has stayed true to a simple formula that hasn’t had the need to change— straight forward with no gimmicks or unnecessary frills. Kudos to them for knowing who they are since day 1. Congrats on a well-deserved win!

Best Breakfast Sandwich THE SPARROW BAKERY By Jack Harvel Sparrow is a longtime favorite for Best Bakery in Central Oregon, winning the category every time since 2013. It won that title this year, too, but it’s also taking home new bragging rights in a new category — Best Breakfast Sandwich in Central Oregon. Sparrow opened its original location on Scott Street in 2006 with a mission of creating high-quality baked goods at prices people can afford. The humble bakery’s popularity skyrocketed over the years, and it now has a location in Northwest Crossing and in the St. Johns neighborhood in Portland—but closed its original space this year. “It’s very humbling that we have so many people enjoying our product that are here in Bend and outside of Bend. We went from having a staff of, like, four to over 100,” said Jessica Keating, co-owner of The Sparrow Bakery. Popular menu items like the Ocean Roll, almond croissant sandwich and croque monsieur are all to die for, but for a morning meal that gets your day started right you can’t go wrong with the Bacon-Breakfast sandwich. “For us we feel like the base of the sandwich is really important. And so, we do it on a croissant and then we poach an egg, we use real avocado, we make arugula aioli for the sauce, and then the bacon... we cure and then we add a little bit of sweet and savory to it,” Keating said. “I think that each item is really good on its own but then when you put it together it eats really well.” Vegetarians don’t have to miss out either; the non-bacon breakfast uses havarti cheese instead of bacon. “A lot of people like that even if they also like bacon, the melted cheese with the egg is really nice,” Keating said.

By Chris Williams Seeing Super Burrito win Best Burrito is going to bring a smile to a lot of Bendites’ faces. The hole-in-the-wall burrito joint has been serving up tasty and affordable burritos since 1995 and has been one of locals’ best kept secrets. Nowhere else in Bend can you snag a burrito for under 10 bucks and have it at your table in under 10 minutes. The cooks are committed to using fresh ingredients and authentic recipes, from the burritos down to the salsa. The non-pretentious environment welcomes a whole host of people from all walks of life. At any given lunch hour there will be families three kids deep, business people in primed and pressed suits and construction workers/contractors wearing the sawdust of half a day’s hard work on their clothes. For those who fear that the spot is going to be blown out, you can relax; Super Burrito is a family-run restaurant committed to being loyal to its customers. It won’t stray far from what they have been doing for the last 27 years. “The Super Supreme is the most popular. The name says it all,” explains Juan Moreno, the owner of Super Burrito’s west side location, of the massive burrito stuffed with meat, chile relleno, pico and special sauces. In an age where it feels like some restaurants are trying too hard and have drifted away from authenticity, spots like this remind us that everything will be OK. Simple, straightforward and classic tastes still reign (super) supreme. Daniel Robbins

Best Bloody Mary and Eggs Benedict THE VICTORIAN CAFE By Chris Williams When people think of breakfast in Bend one place sticks out: The Victorian Cafe. The staple breakfast spot has won multiple awards for best breakfast, has even been mentioned by The New York Times and keeps the ball rolling with two more awards granted by Source readers this year. Source readers have voted The Victorian Cafe’s egg benedicts and Bloody Mary as the best in town. Diners have the option to select from 10 different “bennies” on the breakfast menu. Although a classic benedict is an option, it’s hard not to explore an adventurous side and dive headfirst into the experimental options. The Dungeness Crab Benedict boasts fresh crab and asparagus topped with avocado. Other options offer pesto hollandaise or a Cajun variety for those looking to spice things up. Whatever your taste, The Victorian Cafe has you covered. If you haven’t experienced the Victorian Cafe’s Bloody Mary, be ready for a monstrosity ready to crush any hangover. If a shrimp, sausage and cheese tower poking out of a thick and spicy tomato juice drink sounds up your alley then look no further. Lined across the rim are pickled veggies and olives—yes an actual pickle, and salt to balance out the zest and pepper inside. Two shots of house infused vodka rest inside the monster. Add all this up and a satisfactory nap looks like a pretty pleasing way to end brunch.

Voted Bend’s Best Mediterranean Restaurant!

The Original Pine Tavern Restaurant & Bar on NW Brooks Street downtown at the foot of Oregon Avenue is a piece of Bend history. Founded in 1936 by the enterprising Maren Gribskov and Eleanor Bechen, it started as a restaurant serving the growing population of timber industry workers and their families. As Central Oregon’s economy and demographics have evolved, the iconic downtown establishment has been a constant. Eighty-six years after its founding The Pine Tavern tradition continues as Source Weekly readers have voted the restaurant Best Patio Dining this year, along with 2nd Best Happy Hour. Tucked under huge shade trees, the popular patio at Pine Tavern overlooks Mirror Pond. It’s a chill atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the busy downtown streets and an ideal spot to enjoy some Pine Tavern favorites like the soft scones with honey butter. Even on a summer day, the scones, which have been on the menu since the 1980s, are a must-have. Classic French onion soup, steamer clams, hazelnut encrusted mahi mahi, and a huge burger made with local grass-fed beef are other menu faves. The front of the restaurant bar area has been renovated and updated in recent years but retains its old-school vibe and is a happy hour tradition. House-made sangria and daily food specials attract both locals and tourists. Owner Bill McCormick is grateful to everyone who voted for Pine Tavern. “I’m humbled because there is so much great competition,” he says, and goes on to wish everyone in the food and beverage business the best.

Best Vegan/Vegetarian TOASTY By Nicole Vulcan Just because someone is vegan doesn’t mean they don’t, once in a while, crave the tasty flavors of a “crunchwrap” from one ubiquitous yet here-unnamed Mexican-style fast food restaurant. With the addition of the Toasty “plant-based magic” food cart to the Bend scene, vegans can get what they’re craving and not wonder what mysteries lie inside that grilled tortilla. While the 100% plant-based Nacho Crunchwrap is what keeps this omnivorous writer coming back for more, the business was initially conceived as a place to serve up avocado toasts. It quickly morphed into a space for all things plant based—including salads, tacos, and that craveable crunchwrap that now comes in nacho, buffalo chick’n or (plant-based) cheeseburger. “It can be really hard to find vegan food that is fresh and flavorful and tastes so similar to the non-vegan food that most people are used to, and we’ve filled that void here in this community,” said owner Brooke Priem, who's assisted by manager Zach Tobias. “A lot of people come to Toasty not even knowing that it’s vegan, which I think is really cool, and when we tell them that it is, they’re always really impressed.” Toasty, located inside a vintage trailer at The Podski, has only been on the scene since 2021, and so far is making quite a splash. For the vegans who have lamented about seeing a non-vegan place win in this category in the past, you’re finally vindicated. Make great vegan food and even the omnivores will flock there—and who knows, it might even result in a few converts. Since Toasty also made it to the podium in the Best Food Cart category, getting 2nd to the popular Hawaiian cart, Aina, that argument seems only more true.

Best Food Cart Lot

MIDTOWN YACHT CLUB By Jack Harvel Midtown Yacht Club opened in July 2020, just months after a global pandemic forced businesses to shut their doors. Despite the inopportune timing, Midtown Yacht Club quickly rose through the ranks of Bend’s food cart lots, earning its first Best Of win and dethroning longtime favorites On Tap and Podski. The owners envisioned a Midtown-centered, unassuming local bar offering affordable food and beer, cutting against the image one might imagine for a “yacht club.” “The owners wanted a place where everyone is welcome to come have a cold beer, good food and relaxed place to watch sports on TV and bring their dogs along,” said General Manager Alesha Goodman. “For the most part, we’ve had all the same food carts since the beginning, and they all have good food and a great following.” Local favorites like Barrio, TOTS! and Shimshon set up shop at Midtown Yacht Club. It also offers an impressive selection of beers from across the Pacific Northwest. Goodman says, “Every cart lot has its niche, and there's a relaxed atmosphere and a lineup of products that aren’t easy to find in the area.” Some 20 rotating taps and a lineup of beverage coolers have also been a big draw for the Yacht Club. “When I used to be the buyer, my goal was to bring in products that were local, as well as products that you couldn’t find everywhere else in town,” Goodman said. “I wanted to be a place where people could go and find something they’d been looking for, and something they were excited about, maybe something from another state that they hadn’t been able to find anywhere or hadn’t had in years.” Midtown is always trying to find a way to distinguish itself and get new people in the door, whether it’s live music, a game of bingo hosted by fellow Best Of winner Street Dog Hero or it’s the Wednesday night "Dustin Does Trivia" that Goodman described as “unlike any trivia you’ve ever seen.” With all its momentum, it’s smooth sailing for these first-time Best Of winners.

By Jack Harvel Dandy’s Drive-In is a Bend staple, slinging burgers, fries and milkshakes via roller-skated carhops since 1968. Bend has changed a lot in that time, but Dandy’s hasn’t; the classic ‘60s feel is a big draw for the business. “We haven’t changed things since 1968. We have the same old-fashioned aspect to it. Between the roller skating carhops, the same menu, smiling faces, I would say that’s what makes Dandy’s, Dandy’s,” said Noelle Ensz, general manager. “It’s really cool to hear so many customers who will come back in and when they’re eating, they say, ‘Hey, I used to work here 30 years ago, and you guys kept it the same!’” Dandy’s doesn’t just offer up nostalgia, though. In June, “Readers Digest” rated it the best burger in Oregon, and of course there are the 24 flavors of milkshake, each of which can be combined with another. A May 2021 Source Weekly article rated the multitude of choices, finding nearly each of them to be delicious. And this year, we’ve rolled out the new category of Best Milkshake—a category that Dandy’s was born to win. “I’d say our most popular, of course classics, right now our most popular during the summer is always fresh strawberry. That one’s going to be hard to beat, that one’s a classic. Of course, chocolate and vanilla, Oreos all are some of our best sellers, fresh banana. I’d say a personal favorite that’s underrated is peanut butter Oreo,” Ensz said.

Walk down Wall Street in downtown Bend nearly any afternoon and you’ll find out what many Bendites already know: 900 Wall is a popular spot, with outdoor tables hugging the block, happy patrons busily gobbling up the oysters on the half shell, fried green beans, house-made fries, and of course, happy hour cocktails. Served from 3 to 5:30pm, the happy hour at 900 Wall is a go-to for wise locals who like great drinks, a superb wine list and yummy small plates for reasonable prices—ideal as a meal all in itself, or as the pre-game for the remarkable dinners served up after happy hour is over.

DESCHUTES BREWERY’S FRESH HAZE IPA

By Brian Yaeger

VOLUME 26 ISSUE 32 / AUGUST 11, 2022 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY / BEST OF ISSUE

Deschutes Brewery’s Fresh Haze IPA once again tops the podium for Best Hazy. Since the category is in its second year, the beer is undefeated. A hazy, in beer parlance, is specifically an India Pale Ale that is neither clear nor bitter—the hallmarks of the once-popular West Coast IPA. In 2014 you could not find an example of what was originally dubbed a New England IPA in Oregon. By 2017 it was standard for brewery taprooms to offer three different NEIPAs built with haze-producing proteins from grains like flaked oats and unmalted wheat. In 2018, building on Fresh Squeezed IPA’s wild success, Deschutes introduced Fresh Haze. Fresh Squeezed had pivoted from high-IBU (International Bitterness Units) IPAs that see a ton of hops used early in the boiling process that create bitterness, to late-addition hops added at the end the boil (then generously dryhopped), which leads to characteristic juicy flavors and a softer body. Fresh Haze is Deschutes’s second-best-selling beer after Fresh Squeezed. The “haze craze” shows no sign of letting up, as Fresh Haze has tough competition in Bend. But what distinguishes it is that instead of chasing tropical or berry juice notes that tend to rely on hops grown in the Southern Hemisphere, Fresh Haze employs PNW all-star Amarillo plus Mandarina Bavaria (actually from Bavaria) hops that throw citrus flavors. It’s also far less hazy (cloudy) than most beers in the same vein, so it’s got the style’s distinctive pillowy mouthfeel and sweetness, is less opaque, and is embedded in West Coasters’ affinity for citrus-forward flavors. Fresh Haze is a tangerine bomb! “We wanted to avoid ‘yellow milk,’” says Deschutes’ Brewmaster Scott Birdwell. “It’s not visually appealing to us to be so thick. Our take was it needs to be hazy but have an attractive orange color and orange-like flavor.”

Best Yoga Studio NAMASPA By Jack Harvel Namaspa winning the best yoga studio in Central Oregon shouldn’t be surprising for people who’ve been keeping track — it’s the fourth year in a row it’s won the award. Suzie Newcome started the business in 2007 with a goal to bring the tools of yoga and mindfulness to Central Oregon. The classes at Namaspa range from the physically demanding power vinyasa in a 90-degree room to yin yoga, a form of yoga that takes place entirely on the floor. “It’s like if you think of the yin and the yang symbol. So the vinyasa power flow would be more like a yang class, it’s heated, it’s like the sun, and then the yin, and like the moon, just totally not doing any activity. And it’s generally helping not just the muscles, but also the connective tissue in the body,” Newcome said. Namaspa teaches everyday yoga students but has also graduated more than 250 teachers in its yoga teacher training program. Its nonprofit arm, the Namaspa Foundation, takes yoga classes to recovery centers, jails and prisons. “We take yoga out of the studio to people who also need those tools for mindfulness, but may not know about it or be able to have access,” Newcome said. Bend’s not necessarily lacking in opportunities for yoga, and when asked what sets Namaspa apart, Newcome said it’s the community. “I do think that there’s just fabulous studios in Bend, and I’m proud to be part of this community. I think what sets us apart is the breadth of our community. That may be a virtue of the fact that we’ve been around a long time, that we just really emphasize community and connection and making it accessible to everyone,” Newcome said.

Best Pet Resort

BEND PET RESORT By Nicole Vulcan Bend is known for a number of things—craft beer, glorious mountain views, an abundance of puffy jackets… and of course, a dog or two in (nearly) every household. And when it comes time for those households to go on vacation, someone has to take care of the furry members of the family. That’s where places like Bend Pet Resort come in—havens of fun and safety for dogs, and cats, too. Bend Pet Resort, named by the readers of the Source Weekly as the Best Pet Resort in Central Oregon, is tucked away on the east side of Bend, on 27th Avenue. The business offers dog and cat boarding and grooming as well as doggy day care for those pups who need a little entertainment while their human family is at work. “We are a team of animal enthusiasts who make it our goal to ensure every animal has a wonderful experience while in our care,” said co-owner Haley Fannin, who bought the business from its previous owners, along with two other partners, in 2021. “Our staff go above and beyond to make sure that every animal feels safe and loved during their stay.” Pets have plenty of room to play indoors and out at Bend Pet Resort, and can also get a grooming while they’re there. “Our groomers are amazing and take the time that the dogs need to get the grooming done to ensure that it is as stress free for each fur baby as possible,” Fannin said.

BEST LANDSCAPE SERVICE When the calendar turns to the time that Oregonians reluctantly call “smoke season,” (followed, in recent years, by “heat dome” season), our pets start getting the short end of the stick. Pavement too hot to walk on. Cars too hot to sit in for more than a minute. Parks and streets and backyards too smoky to breathe in. You get the picture. That’s why, on a recent day, I walked into Bend Pet Express to chat it up with the staff about my options for keeping my bored pups—fortunate enough to live in a house with A/C, but unfortunate enough to be cooped up during smoke season— busy during this time. The staff spent plenty of time with me, explaining which toys would help to stave off the boredom that my pandemic puppy is so obviously displaying, with her frantic zooming from one room of the house to another. I walked out with a new puzzle toy and advice on offering a cold bone to my puppy, right from the stash in the freezer. Both, they told me, will keep them busy for quite some time—along with offering some cooling benefits. Personalized customer service is just one of the reasons that people frequent Bend Pet Express—and why it routinely wins a Best of Central Oregon award. Quality foods, a wide selection of treats and supplements, curbside pickup and grooming services may be some of the other reasons. For me, though, keeping my pups happy during the long and sometimes boring “smoke season” is high on the list.

GOODS & SERVICES

If you want to see an example of grit, look no further than Penny Lash, a business born at the tail end of the Great Recession and expanded during the COVID-19 pandemic. Owner Rebecca Penny moved to Bend from Minneapolis, Minnesota 26 years ago, several years into her career in the beauty business. In 2015, Penny opened her first Penny Lash studio, a budding business offering eyelash extensions in what would grow to over a billion-dollar-a-year industry. Within a year, Penny Lash had outgrown its space and moved to a location on Galveston Avenue, employing seven lash artists. In 2021, in the middle of the pandemic, Penny Lash expanded again, opening in midtown Bend inside a 3,000-square-foot space with eight “lash beds.” Penny didn’t stop at just offering services, however; as the business now also includes a “lash academy” teaching new artists the craft, as well as a professional line of lash products. Penny also plans to expand to a shop in Redmond soon. Today, Penny Lash-trained artists are found region-wide. “I’ve been educating and certifying other beauty pros in the art of lashing for a decade,” Penny told the Source. “I have trained and certified countless lash artists and now have trained other Penny Lash trainers who offer classes in their regions in Oregon and California.” Now servicing hundreds of clients each week, it’s no surprise that Penny Lash is also looking for new people to join the team. “The team of independent contractors are always extremely busy!” Penny said. She’s also quick to underline how much she appreciates her incredible team. “Some of the hardest working women and we are very tight knit. No catty—only cat eye.” With the addition of services including body waxing, lash lifts, brow henna and brow lamination, Source readers are feeling the vibe, too—voting Penny Lash Best Beauty Studio—and this year, also second place in Best Beauty Boutique, too.

In addition to its full complement of facials, skin care, foot soaks, waxing, deep-tissue and other massages, Anjou also invites guests to sit and stay a while, enjoying the steam room and infrared sauna, or even its “sanctuary suite,” where couples or groups can come and relax in their own private space and enjoy sparkling wine, cupcakes or a charcuterie board. “For us it’s the whole experience—all the little touches we do,” said Jenna Walden, owner of Anjou Spa. “We try to add value to our experiences—they’re there to relax both mentally and physically.” Anjou’s team prides itself on catering to the type of people who work hard and play hard in Central Oregon—a lot of times, that includes athletic people who spend a lot of time in the wind and sun, and whose skin can be impacted by all that activity. Recently, Anjou added a new line of skin care products called Ultraceuticals, an Australian brand designed to help repair skin in a dry climate like Central Oregon’s. “It’s about building up your skin barrier and getting that strengthened,” Walden said. Between its lush skin care products and its comfortable spa services—and the option to get a monthly membership to support your regular wellness and therapeutic goals—it’s no wonder that the readers of the Source Weekly have voted Anjou Spa their “Best” once again.

THE SPOT BARBERSHOP By Nicole Vulcan Before Ivan Johnson opened The Spot Barbershop, he dreamed of running a place that had that classic “barbershop vibe,” filled with music, people chatting about sports and the news of the day, and maybe enjoying a drink—a place like the shops he knew in Portland, where he’d grown up. After working at several shops around town, Johnson realized that dream in 2018 when he opened The Spot along SE Third Street in Bend. “I wanted to make it tight knit, with a community connection,” Johnson said. Initially opened as a classic men’s barbershop doing fades and other cuts, word quickly got out that Johnson had skills women might be looking for, too. “Being one of the only people in town that knows how to braid or do dreadlocks, word spread,” Johnson told the Source. These days, you’re as likely to find Johnson doing braids in a woman’s hair as you are finding him giving a man a beard trim. “It went from being a place for mainly men to being a place for everybody, really,” Johnson said. With a current total of five barbers, this “spot” offering hair for everybody is finding itself booked out quickly, and Johnson hopes to soon expand The Spot to offer even more chairs. And with the win as Best Barbershop in the 2022 Best of Central Oregon readers’ poll, we’d say that’s probably a wise choice.

Best Outdoor ClothingMOUNTAIN SUPPLY By Jack Harvel Since 1980 Mountain Supply has been outfitting mountaineers, backcountry skiers, backpackers and climbers with the gear and expertise they need for their outdoor adventures. The independent retailer’s won the best outdoor clothing store category for the past two years. The store’s support from the community stems from the customer service and expertise of its staff. “Our knowledgeable staff is really what sets us apart,” said Kevin Ganey, the general manager of Mountain Supply. “Not only do we have a little bit more of a specialized gear and a curated assortment within some of the best brands in the industry, but a wide selection of those brands as well. And really, our people and our staff really round out that in terms of being able to provide that amazing customer service, and maybe a little level of detail that you’re not going to get from the bigger box stores.” Those bigger box stores are surprisingly welcome competition to Ganey, who said the larger retail stores are usually the first step people take to the outdoors. As they continue and seek higher quality gear, they’ll eventually find their way to specialty retail stores like Mountain Supply. “I think that we still maybe wouldn’t exist without some of those bigger stores that help bring a larger population into the outdoor space,” Ganey said. “We’re never going to say no to someone wanting to get into the outdoors; we think that’s probably one of the most healthy and best choices people can make. Especially as we’ve seen the last couple years with the global pandemic.”

Best Open Mic Night

SILVER MOON BREWING

75

By Chris Williams

VOLUME 26 ISSUE 32 / AUGUST 11, 2022 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY / BEST OF ISSUE

Silver Moon Brewing has risen to become one of the prominent music and comedy venues in town, putting on multiple shows each week and attracting huge crowds. Although the venue gets national touring acts on a weekly basis, one thing Bendites agree that Silver Moon does best is give space to local creatives to hone their crafts and perform in front of a live audience at its comedy and music open mic nights. “Silver Moon was really the first venue in Bend to embrace both art forms. Usually, venues either stick to comedy or music. They built a bridge between the two worlds,” explains Katy Ipock, local comedy powerhouse and one of two hosts (the other being Jessica Taylor) of Silver Moon’s comedy open mic on Monday nights. “The room was really full last night,” Ipock explains. Silver Moon consistently packs in audiences there to check out local artists, Ipock said, which is a testament to the talent that lives in Bend. The music open mic is also known for its communal environment which invites a variety of artists to perform. Jeshua Marshall, local musician and host of the music open mic on Sundays, has let comedians get a little time in during the music sets in the past. This non-competitive approach fosters creative connection that allows artists a space to collaborate. Something is in the water (or more likely the beer) at Silver Moon that any arts enthusiast is sure to not want to miss.

Best Redmond Pizza GRACE & HAMMER PIZZERIA By Nicole Vulcan In 2020 we here at the Source Weekly introduced you to the “Altar of Pizza,” the then-new church-turned-pizzeria opened by a team of pizza-makers from Austin, Texas. Doing its first full summer in business during a pandemic wasn’t exactly the thing they—or any restauranteur, for that matter—would have been dreaming of, but in spite of that unexpected global event, Grace and Hammer has steadily been establishing its reputation as the go-to place for excellent wood-fired pies, great cocktails and an ooze of ambiance that is undeniable. Where once stood the chancel of the former Presbyterian church now stands the wood-fired oven, ready for daily worship. Watching it produce lovely, crispy pizzas or fresh bread is the definition of divine. “We are constantly busy—we’ve worked hard doing our best to keep up with the demand,” said co-owner and General Manager Adam Valentine. “We can’t be thankful enough for the community around us that have made this pizzeria dream come to life.” Combined with a great patio for outdoor dining, craveable desserts and small plates that include a charcuterie board, caprese salad, wings, salad and fried mozzarella, Grace and Hammer checks all the boxes for a fun night on the town.

REDMOND 81 VOLUME 26 ISSUE 32 / AUGUST 11, 2022 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY / BEST OF ISSUE

Best New Restaurant XALISCO LATIN CUISINE By Jack Harvel Redmond’s restaurant scene is getting stronger every year, and this year’s favorite newcomer is an authentic Mexican restaurant that opened last summer, specializing in dishes from the western state of Mexico that the restaurant is named after. Xalisco specialties include the torta ahogada, a pork sandwich coated with salsa, as well as fish tacos and alambres —a dish similar to fajitas but with the added flavors of pineapple and bell peppers. “I think a lot of people think that American Mexican food is just like, tacos, burritos, and sort of like Tex-Mex-style flavors. I think at Xalisco, we really go a step further and really provide people with an experience, it’s not just the food—they’re really getting a piece of the culture because everything is very, very authentic,” said Daniella Llamas, a spokesperson for Xalisco Latin Cuisine. The restaurant is a family endeavor. Lupe Medina moved to Central Oregon to open a restaurant with her brother Evaristo Medina and sister Angeles Medina. It’s not the family’s first foray into the Redmond food scene, as the family also owns Carnaval Mexican Grill. Llamas said the Redmond community has been supportive of the restaurant since opening just over a year ago. “People have really responded to the authenticity of the flavors. And not just that, but they can really feel the sort of love that’s put into every dish,” Llamas said.

Best Live Music Venue THE BARN By Chris Williams

The Barn in Sisters came out hot in its first year. Winning the Best New Restaurant is no easy feat in an establishment’s first year, but to win the Best Live Music Venue at the same time is impressive. Not only does The Barn host a handful of food carts, but it also makes its own pizza, now being the home of Boone Dog Pizza. Sisters is a town stacked with live music, from hosting its own folk festival to bringing in some of the best acoustic acts from around the country year-round. For those who haven’t checked out The Barn yet for music, it’s an ideal small outdoor venue. The stage is tucked comfortably into the corner of the lot and looks out to a man-made grassy hill with sitting stones and a walking path that creates a natural looking amphitheater. The venue hosts two nights of music every week on Thursdays and Saturdays, with Central Oregon’s finest musicians taking the stage. “We aim to support local farms and musicians, and the community recognizes and appreciates that,” owner Daniel St. Lawrence said about The Barn’s success in its inaugural year. On top of showcasing some of the best music in Central Oregon the Barn aims to source super-local ingredients from local farms. Although the restaurant’s brunch pop-ups and seasonal menu are on hold for the summer season, The Barn stays busy baking delicious breads and its signature pizzas. It’s well worth the drive from surrounding parts of Central Oregon to soak in the atmosphere and get some tasty snacks.

SUNRIVER BREWING By Chris Williams

Sunriver Brewing Co. has won a “Best Of” category in the Source every year since the brewery’s inception in 2012. Along with being one of the most award-winning breweries from the area nationally, there is also a delicious menu that has developed alongside the quality of the beer. The brewery has opened two pubs in Bend and one in Eugene, along with its flagship pub in Sunriver. Being able to grow during a pandemic speaks to the quality of the brewery and shows that it doesn’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon. In its 10th year, Sunriver Brewing Company has won three categories in the Sunriver area: Best Lunch, Best Restaurant AND Best Bar/Brewpub. “We try our best all the time to put out the best quality to locals and tourists. Our employees are passionate about their work and it shows in what we produce,” says Ryan Duley, marketing director for Sunriver Brewing. The welcoming attitude and attention to detail are universal qualities that have made the brewing company a go-to tourist destination as well as a local Bend favorite. While some breweries treat food as an afterthought, Sunriver Brewing finds balance between award-winning beers and high-quality food. This commitment has paid off, helping them stand out in an area saturated in beer.

or those who haven’t heard yet, there’s been something brewing in Sisters this summer. Throughout the season, Sisters Art Works has acted as a communal backyard for those lucky enough to see a show there, put on by the folks at Sisters Folk Festival. The small stage behind the SFF headquarters looks out onto a small lawn lined with chairs, people on apartment balconies dancing up above and some of the prettiest sunsets. Audiences are treated to an up-close-and-personal listening experience and mountain views. I don’t want to trigger anyone’s FOMO for those who haven’t made it, but the lineup has been fantastic. MarchFourth marched on early in July with a huge ensemble of horns and drums. Rising Appalachia took the stage July 21 and had the audience grooving. Watchhouse (formerly known as Mandolin Orange) appeared July 30 with the audience in awe of the exceptional musicianship. Folk legend Tim O’Brian was there last week, and now to top off the summer the venue will host Southern Avenue and Jontavious Willis for a night of gritty blues. With the addition of much great summer music, the Sisters Art Works shows only add to the strong reputation Sisters has built as a music town.

Caprese Frittata, a la Cafe Lena

Garlic and cheese in scrambled eggs is a concept as old as breakfast, but it’s instructive and inspirational how a pedestrian batch of eggs can be so easily transformed and elevated to greatness

W

Ari Le vau x

hen I lived in Portland in the late 1990s, there was a breakfast spot on Hawthorne Boulevard called Cafe Lena, where I used to go for a dish called “BBG Scrambled Eggs.” BBG stands for Basil, Brie and Garlic. In today’s world of hybrid recipes and fusion cuisine, most menu readers are too jaded to bat an eye at such an unexpected combination. But at the time, my belly-brain was blown. Decades later, the magic has only grown. I now view the dish as an example of how to incorporate seasonal ingredients into my standard recipes. Garlic and cheese in a batch of scrambled eggs is a concept as old as breakfast, but it’s instructive and inspirational how a pedestrian batch of eggs can be so easily transformed and elevated to greatness. Since I began messing around with it, BBG Scrambled Eggs has become a template for how to accommodate the revolving feast of produce that the seasons provide. I have been using variations on BBG to use my farmers market loot the way my parents once used stir-fry to clean out the fridge. After several evolutions of the original BBG Scrambled Eggs, the recipe has evolved into a frittata, heavy on potatoes and onions. The next step was to shoehorn the components of caprese, the iconic salad of tomato, basil and mozzarella. This shift started organically, when I was out of brie so I used mozzarella. Since the basil was already there, it only took tomatoes to complete the caprese. This time of year, when the garlic is new, I use it as both vegetable and spice.

As such, I add it twice. The first wave helps to create a baseline savory flavor for the dish. The second wave of garlic, added near the end, stays closer to raw, adding pizzazz. I began adding other vegetables, when available, including spinach, zucchini and broccoli, as the dish had become decidedly quiche-like. The resulting BBG Caprese Frittata is a juggernaut at the table. Each bite is an adventure, with tart tomatoes, chewy cheese, aromatic basil and other flavors combining into fireworks. The texture is as captivating as the flavor, thanks to the mozzarella, potato and onions browning into a delightfully chewy skin. Enjoying this dish for the first time was such a captivating experience that I temporarily withdrew from the rest of the world. I dimly remember my son calling out to me with a question, but I didn’t want to stop chewing—even long enough to blurt out a quick reply—so I pretended not to hear him. A f t e r m a k ing a few batches I remembered the brie, and added it back without dropping the mozzarella. The brie, especially the rind, which I did not remove, added a distinct fungal flavor to the dish that interacts with the basil to create a musky, exotic kind of savory flavor that brought me all the way back to where we started, at Cafe Lena, and washed me with feelings of nostalgia for pre-hipster Portland. After 20 odd years the recipe had come full circle, while going somewhere else entirely.

BBG Caprese Frittata This recipe folds recipes and ingredients of European origin into a West Coast context that’s about as far away from Europe as you can get without a boat. Serves 2 • 1 large potato, preferably a waxy type like Yukon gold, grated • 1 large onion, sliced thinly • 4 tablespoons olive oil • 6 cloves of garlic: 5 whole cloves, with the 6th grated • 2 small (<4-inch) zucchinis, sliced thinly • 3 eggs • ¼ teaspoon salt • 1 tomato-sized tomato, sliced into quarters, each of which is sliced into thirds • ½ cup cubed mozzarella • ½ cup cubed brie, skin-on • 1 cup basil leaves Heat half of the oil on medium in a non-stick pan—either an omelet pan or a cast iron skillet. Add the potatoes and onions to the hot oil and thoroughly mix. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, which retains the moisture from the onions and steams them, along with the potatoes, into a soft mush. After about 10 minutes, add the whole garlic cloves. After another 5 minutes add the zucchini. (If you are incorporating other vegetables, you will have to figure out when and in which order to add them so they all finish cooking at the same time as the potatoes, or if they should be added in the next step, along with the tomatoes, cheese and basil, which we want to cook as little as possible.) When the potatoes, onions, garlic and zucchini—and perhaps other vegetables—are done to perfection, turn off the heat and let them cool. Meanwhile, beat the eggs along with the salt, and let them sit until the cooked stuff has cooled. Then, give the eggs a final beating and add the cooked items, stirring them stiffly into the eggs. Add the tomatoes, basil, grated garlic and cubes of cheese, and gently fold them in. Clean the pan and add the remaining two tablespoons of oil. Turn the heat to medium, and when the pan heats up, splash some water in the oil to see if it sputters. When the water sputters, add the egg mixture and gently spread it evenly about the pan. Put the lid back on to trap as much heat as possible, and cook until you smell the bottom start to brown. Don’t wait until you smell burning. When you smell the browning, the top will probably have begun to set up but still appear a bit pale. With a spatula, gently separate the frittata from wherever it is sticking to the pan. Ideally, at this point you should be able to move the frittata around the pan in one piece just by shaking it. Place a plate over the frittata and gently flip it. Do so over a container positioned to catch any excess oil that might tip out while you’re flipping it onto the plate. Then add the oil back to the pan, and slide the inverted frittata off the plate and back into the pan, for just a minute or so to finish cooking the top surface. Turn it off before it totally finishes, to prevent over cooking, and let it cool on the stove with the lid on. When cool enough to work with, slide the frittata onto a plate, and serve.

This Island Earth

After losing a lifetime’s worth of photographic work in the Holiday Farm Fire, a Bendite goes on to create an epic cold-water surfing film By Jared Rasic

103

Mark McInnis

T

he premise is simple: a few friends hear about an island in a remote and snowy area with some amazing cold-water surfing, they go to the mysterious island and make “Island X,” a beautiful documentary about their experience along the way. Where is this island, you may ask? Nobody ever speaks the name or exact location (other than it’s on the Bering Sea) in the film and it requires a bit of sleuthing to find out, but I’m certainly not spoiling it here. One of the subjects of the doc is Mark McInnis, a born and raised Bendite and brilliant photographer who loves depicting hostile environments. Recently before the making of the documentary, he lost most of his body of work in the Holiday Farm Fire of 2020. “Island X” doesn’t just follow a group of filmmakers, surfers and a photographer on a surfing trip, it also tells McInnis’ story of loss and his joy in creation. Director/cinematographer Ben Weiland and co-cinematographer Mike Nulty have crafted some breathtaking setups in “Island X,” giving the film such a rich and stunning palate across magnificent frozen vistas and icy textures that even someone as unfamiliar with surfing as I am couldn’t help but, pardon me, be swept away by the film. There’s such an audacious bravura to the shot compositions that I had to remind myself I was watching a documentary and not a hundred-million-dollar adventure movie. A surf movie in a snowy and freezing environment is also something I’ve never seen before, but no one Mark McInnis

ever looks miserable; They’re thriving and having the time of their lives on Island X. “I’ve always been drawn to more hostile, cold, remote environments,” says McInnis. “I think it’s simply a byproduct of where I’m from. Growing up in the PNW, it’s just part of your daily life. I lived on the Oregon Coast for eight years or so and loved it so much. It was truly the place where I felt the most at home. So, chasing surf in environments like that was only natural.” This interest has led him all over the world. “I’ve been to Scotland, Ireland, Iceland, New Zealand, Canada, Alaska and Chile looking for remote surf spots,” McInnis told the Source. “But this is the Bering Sea. This is a different beast entirely. So that part of the process was new and exciting. The Bering gets its lore from chaos, violence and death. It’s known as the deadliest sea on the planet. So going somewhere with such a reputation was exciting and fresh.” I couldn’t help but relate to McInnis and the loss of his work. I think about the thousands of reviews and stories I’ve written over the years and the thought of losing them all is overwhelming, but McInnis didn’t let it slow him down. “I don’t think it was hard to start creating content again,” says McInnis. “It was just hard losing so much previous work. That body of work sort of defines an artist in a way. So when I lost it all, it felt like I had lost myself in a sense. But I’m a photographer. It’s really all I know how to do for a profession, so I didn’t have to talk myself into it. I knew I’d keep

going and pursuing my passions, but it felt like a clean slate, a new beginning.” For McInnis, getting to screen the film at the Tower Theatre this week is a perfect capper to the “Island X” experience. “My father was on the board for the “Save the Tower” movement back in 1997 and was actually the person responsible for procuring the largest donation to the cause,” says McInnis. “My grandparents, Marvin and Eda Anderson, also have a front row seat in the balcony dedicated in their honor. So, it’s a great honor to show such a personal film here, at home, in this very historic theatre.” “Island X” shows surfing in a way I’ve never seen it done across an environment that should be inhospitable for humans to do such things, but the team makes it look fun and sort of effortless. Adventure documentaries aren’t normally as gorgeously composed as this one is, either, so they not only managed to have a badass surfing trip, but captured some astounding footage along the way. Catch this on the biggest screen possible.

BODIES BODIES BODIES: A meta horror comedy that tries to reframe the high-concept hilarity of “Scream” for post-Millennials and the Zoom generation. Pete Davidson is in it, so I guess this movie will be our news cycle for the next few weeks, although it does look entertaining and fun. Regal Old Mill BULLET TRAIN: Why yes, I would like to see Brad

Pitt fight a train full of assassins as it speeds across Japan. When you’ve got one of the co-creators of the “John Wick” franchise behind the camera, that means there’s a good chance this will have some brains and some heart behind all the carnage. Count me in. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House, Odem Theater Pub

DC LEAGUE OF SUPER-PETS: This animated

adventure sees The Rock and Kevin Hart as the voice of Superman and Batman’s respective dogs that must team up to save their respective Super Partners. The trailers for this aren’t great, but I’ve been a fan of the Super-Pets since I was a kid, so don’t be surprised if you see me at the theater. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House

EASTER SUNDAY: Comedian Jo Koy gets his first starring role as a man returning home to his wacky family for Easter shenanigans. It’s directed by Jay Chandrasekhar (who did “Super Troopers), so hopefully this has some big laughs and bigger heart. Regal Old Mill ELVIS: I would have zero interest in this one if it

wasn’t from the same filmmaker who did “Moulin Rouge,” so I know it will at least be visually interesting. Sorry, I just don’t care about Elvis. I like the musicians he ripped off quite a bit more. Regal Old Mill, Odem Theater Pub

A Grand Jury Never Did Us Any Favors by J. Dylan Cavin

EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE:

Martial arts, sci-fi and mind-f*ck combine for this jaw-dropping showcase of the brilliant Michelle Yeoh and the unsung comedic chops of Jamie Lee Curtis. From the Daniels, this is a breathtaking work of imagination that uses cinematic techniques we haven’t seen since the heyday of Spike Jonze and Michele Gondry. Tin Pan Theater, Regal Old Mill

JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION: I’m in the minority in thinking the last couple “Jurassic World” movies had a few pretty exciting moments but weren’t actually great movies. This new one brings back Sam Neil, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum from the original, but still manages to be dull, uninspired and pointless. Regal Old Mill

what requires more suspension of disbelief: the age-swapping premise or that the filmmakers think there are still 30-year-old influencers. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House

MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON: Did you

fall in love with the hilarious and touching YouTube videos of Marcel (voiced by the luminous Jenny Slate) when they came out a few years ago? You haven’t seen them? Go ahead and watch them…I’ll wait. You wanna go see the movie now??? Perfect, I’ll meet you there! Regal Old Mill, Tin Pan Theater

MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU: I definitely wish this

looked more like a sequel to the surprisingly great “Minions” and less like a prequel to “Despicable Me,” but who am I kidding, I’ll see this either way. I love me some Twinkie-shaped, gibberish-speaking weirdos. Regal Old Mill, Odem Theater Pub, McMenamins

MRS. HARRIS GOES TO PARIS: The story of a British housekeeper and her dream to own a Christian Dior gown. The trailer for this is charming and it’s been a while since we’ve had a good fish-out-ofwater story, so here’s hoping this is as good as it looks. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House NOPE: One of my most anticipated movies of 2022

is finally here: Jordan Peele’s third feature as a director, “Nope.” Instead of doing another deep dive into the fractured psyche of humanity, this is an alien invasion story unlike any we’ve ever seen. This managed to exceed every single expectation I had for it. Regal Old Mill

THE RACE TO ALASKA: Do you want to be pinned to your theater seat for a couple hours while watching a documentary about one of the most dangerous races in the world? Good, because that’s absolutely going to happen here. Have fun with that. Tin Pan Theater

THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER: Writer/direc-

tor Taika Waititi is one of our most innovative filmmakers and “Love and Thunder” is packed with mind-blowing visuals and some of his most irreverent humor yet. Don’t believe the negativity, this is an absolute blast. I hope we get Thor movies forever. Regal Old Mill

TOP GUN: MAVERICK: There’s a reason why Tom

Cruise is the last true movie star and it’s mostly because he’s that perfect blend of creepy, weird and desperate to entertain us—and boy does he. This feels like a true Hollywood crowd-pleaser in a way we haven’t seen in years. Talk about a highway to the danger zone. Regal Old Mill, Odem Theater Pub

VENGEANCE: A darkly funny crime thriller written/

directed and starring Ryan from “The Office” follows an NYC podcaster who heads out to the sticks to try and solve the crime of who murdered a girl he hooked up with once. He’s trying to make something like “Serial” or “S**tTown, but ends up in the middle of something that looks a lot more like “Winter’s Bone.” Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House

WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING: I really liked this book and actress Daisy Edgar-Jones is a fantastic new talent, so hopefully this Rural Noir murder mystery catches the imaginations of people unfamiliar with the story. If the advanced reviews are accurate, the film doesn’t quite capture the same magic as the book does, but not many movies adapt novels very well in the first place.

SC

And Counting SCREEN 25 Jared Looks at the best films for each year the Source has existed By Jared Rasic Courtesy of Neon

I

VOLUME 26 ISSUE 32 / AUGUST 11, 2022 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY / BEST OF ISSUE

n celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Source Weekly, I have decided to take on the incredibly losing proposition of looking at each year the paper has been open and choosing what the best movie of that specific year was. Not my favorite one, mind you, but the one I think is the actual best movie of the year. AND, just to make things really difficult for myself, I’m also going to pick what I think is objectively the worst movie of the year, too. I’m sure that won’t make anyone upset with me. If it makes you feel any better, this list was almost impossible to make. There are just too many good movies. Let’s do this. 1997 Best movie: “Boogie Nights” Best movie about ‘70s porn ever. Runner-up: “Lost Highway” David Lynch directs my nightmares. Worst movie: “Batman & Robin” Cheeeel outttt! 1998 Best movie: “The Thin Red Line” The most underrated anti-war movie in history. Runner-up: “The Impostors” The last great screwball comedy ever made. Worst movie: “Blues Brothers 2000” One of the worst sequels I’ve ever seen. Offensive. 1999 Best movie: “Being John Malkovich” Changed the language of cinema forever. Runner-up: “The Iron Giant” A perfect film from top to bottom. Worst movie: “The Mod Squad” Tried so hard to be cool that it became super dorky. 2000 Best movie: “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” This just ages so beautifully.

Runner-up: “Adaptation” Nic Cage as twins is still iconic 20 years later. Worst movie: “Halloween: Resurrection” Ironic title since it almost killed the franchise.

A new side of Columbia in “Monos.”

2005 Best movie: “Good Night, and Good Luck” Black and white has never felt more immediate and timely. Runner-up: “A History of Violence” Cronenberg breaks down the family unit unforgettably. Worst movie: “Alone in the Dark:” From the director of 2003’s worst film! 2006 Best movie: ‘Children of Men” Truly groundbreaking filmmaking that still stands up.

Runner-up: “A Prophet” A French crime-thriller that owns real estate in my head. Worst movie: “X-Men: Origins-Wolverine” Should have killed everyone’s career it’s so bad. 2010 Best movie: “Four Lions” The finest laughout-loud comedy about fundamental terrorism ever made. Runner-up: “Dogtooth” The best Greek movie you’ve never seen. Worst movie: “Cop Out” Bruce Willis at his laziest. 2011 Best movie: “Martha Marcy May Marlene” A haunting look at cult programming that introduced the world to Elizabeth Olsen. Runner-up: “Melancholia” The closest anyone has come to capturing the ephemera of depression onscreen. Worst movie: “Atlas Shrugged: Part One” I shrugged and avoided Part Two. 2012 Best movie: “Holy Motors” A French fever dream that explodes all cinematic conventions. Runner-up: “The Cabin in the Woods” A truly groundbreaking horror classic. Worst movie: “The Devil Inside” Actually ends with an ad for the film’s website. 2013 Best movie: “The Great Beauty” Sorrentino creates an Italian take on “Wild Strawberries” and makes one of the best movies ever made. Runner-up: “her” That feeling when the one you love evolves past you. But as a movie. Worst movie: “Texas Chainsaw 3D” I don’t need severed body parts flying at my face anymore.

2004 Best movie: “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” My favorite movie of all time. Runner-up: “Before Sunset” The middle part of the finest romantic trilogy ever made. Worst movie: “Catwoman” It really is as bad as they say. I tried to watch it. Brendan Gleeson in “Calvary.”

105

2014 Best movie: “Calvary” The best movie on this list that you haven’t heard of before. Runner-up: “The Grand Budapest Hotel” You’re either on Wes Anderson’s wavelength or you’re not.

2022 Haulin’ Aspen

R

unning on the blacktop got you down? Then switch it up and get to Haulin’ Aspen—a full-on trail race that follows Central Oregon’s epic single track and dirt roads, with no pavement around. Featured by Trail Running Mag, the race exemplifies the reason so many move to Central Oregon: brushing your elbows with elite endurance athletes who live in the area, taking part in the fun and competitive atmosphere. Haulin’ Aspen allows runners to choose between three distances: marathon, half marathon and 6.5 mile “Half As.” Races start and end at Wanoga Sno-park, following unique loops through pristine Deschutes National Forest trails, with mountain views setting the stage for an intense and fun alpine race. The elevation changes in the race present a challenge, with a lot of hill climbs and descents across tricky terrain. Marathon runners should be ready to have something left in the tank at the end, because my sources tell me there’s a 700-foot vertical gain for the last 2.5 miles of the race! Haulin’ Aspen is put on by Lay It Out Events, sister company to the Source. 2022 Haulin’ Aspen

the Gap OUTSIDE Bridging A film focused on Think Wild documents the wonders of Bend’s wildlife rehab hospital

109

By Nicole Vulcan

Source Weekly: Tell us about the film. Elif Koyuturk: So Think Wild is our wildlife rehabilitation hospital in Bend and it’s run by this amazing woman. They’re mostly volunteers and nonprofit and they restore and preserve our wildlife. You need a lot of passion when you’re doing a thing like that, working at a nonprofit, and I feel like that’s your life as a doctor. So the film follows Pauline [Hice], the director of Wildlife Rehabilitation. She was the first person I met, and I got fascinated by her humbleness and her really motherly connection to the topic was really moving. I started filming her and then I got into the whole story—fascinating because these amazing people are saving lives, right? It was so interesting because when I first started doing this film, I didn’t know about wildlife rehab centers, so I looked at Google—nothing. Like, no films. There was one film about cats in Astoria. That was it. There was a gap there, like hey, now you have this

Filmmaker Elif Koyuturk spent roughly 40 hours following Think Wild's Pauline Hice and others to make "Bridging the Gap."

film where people actually can understand by what rehab and conservation look like. SW: The film really has a “filmic” quality rather than feeling like a promo video. What was your approach in making it? EK: I’m the one-person team and I have my camera—I shot with FS7 Sony—and was really spending time with them and really understanding Pauline, first before anything, because she really didn’t like the camera. She’s like, ‘I just want to do what I want to do and because that’s my passion.’ So my approach has been—it’s my hero. Understand my hero. Feel the friendship with my hero. We are still friends. She’s lovely. And then you know, start building a natural cinematic style around her natural rhythm of life. Cinematically, it is more of like, around my characters’ emotions and building the color around that, the movements that using the natural elements. What does she feel when she actually touches a hawk, when she is healing that—what’s that feeling? Those kind of like studying a more poetic way than a technological way. You know, when you have another cinematographer on set as a director, you can actually focus on that more, but I was focusing on the emotion momentarily and then making the moves and really getting her real emotion out without being too high-production like. It’s a play; it’s like a child-like play. SW: What do you think this film has meant for Think Wild? EK: I don’t want to put words in their mouth, but it was really inspiring for them that the film could materialize, their values. You know, I was super careful when I was editing when I was filming to really like represent what they meant and instead of labeling things for trend-setting things, you know, that’s popular. So I think from their eyes they really understood what it takes to make a real film. It’s not a promotional piece.

“What does she feel when she actually touches a hawk, when she is healing that—what’s that feeling?” —ELIF KOYUTURK

SW: Do you find yourself like taking parts and becoming more than the filmmaker? EK: Yeah, I am like a behind the camera, like crying with them. There was a couple in tears and Pauline was sharing her story and I was too… and the camera shakes, a little here and there. Yeah, you be in their shoes.

ot long ago, Central Oregonians were introduced to Think Wild, a new wildlife hospital and conservation center located along Erickson Road in Bend. On any given day, the center may be occupied by orphaned baby birds, mammals hit by cars or any number of wild creatures reported to Think Wild’s wildlife hotline. Filmmaker Elif Koyuturk, a recent transplant from Istanbul, Turkey who now works as the social & community impact manager at Bend-based Puffin Drinkwear, saw something special in Think Wild’s mission and endeavored to make a film about the work it does. The film, titled “Bridging the Gap,” is described by Koyuturk as a film aiming to “bridge the gap” between the human understanding and the natural world. It’s theme in her work, said Koyuturk, whose other film and photography projects have involved everything from embedding herself among nomadic goat herders in her home country to photographing remote desert dwellers in the U.S. The short film featuring Think Wild (and financed by Puffin) will appear in the “Local Focus” category at this year’s BendFilm, along with being an Official Selection in the LA Independent Women Film Awards. I chatted with Koyuturk recently about the making of “Bridging the Gap.” The Q&A has been lightly edited for clarity and length.

The Endangered Monarch

The iconic butterfly is endangered because its habitat is imperiled. Here’s how to help. By Jim Anderson 111

Life history of the Monarch Butterfly (1) Monarch egg; (2) Monarch Caterpillar [larva]; (3) Monarch Chrysalis; (4) adult Monarch emerging; (5) Blow, adult Monarch on the wing.

H

eadlines in conservation magazines, and even in newspapers have been crying: “Monarch butterflies on the verge of extinction!” And they are, all the way from Maine to California. Their populations have dropped over 90% in the West and up to 84% in the East. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, which recently added the Monarch to its Red List and designated it as “Endangered,” three threats have caused the Monarch populations to decline: habitat loss, widespread use of agricultural chemicals and climate change. Milkweed is the key to survival of Monarch butterflies, and the move to list the Monarch as an Endangered Species will hopefully place protection on milkweeds. It is the only plant the caterpillars can eat. Unfortunately, the agricultural community has been systematically destroying milkweed ever since the cattle industry discovered the plant sickens cows if they eat it. Now that same farming industry is killing even more milkweed with herbicides and by not allowing irrigation water to reach them, which guarantees the annihilation of the Monarch, everywhere. Our Monarchs, found from the western side of the Rockies, spend winter congregating on the coast of California, several locations in Arizona and some join their eastern cousins in Mexico. When the sun tells them spring has arrived they head north to the first milkweed patch, lay eggs and eventually die. When that new bunch becomes adults they continue north to the next milkweed patch, lay eggs and eventually die. This process finally gets the Monarchs all the way to Canada, and they spend summer reproducing in local milkweed patches until the sun tells them winter is coming. At that point there is no more egg-laying in the Monarch society. They put on fat instead, preparing themselves to fly south thousands of miles to where they will spend winter with their friends. Throughout their lives Monarchs need nectar from flowers to fuel their flight and milkweed to lay their eggs on. No other plant will do. Climate change is altering the seasonal availability of these Monarch necessities as well as accelerating habitat loss through wildfires. One of the finest Monarch conservation projects to take place in Central Oregon was the development of a wayside at the Sisters Middle School. “Journey’s Flight” a book about the travels of a

tagged Monarch that came from that wayside, was written by the students of Mrs. Susie Werts’ class and is well worth the read. The photos at the top of this story will give you a look at the life of a Monarch Butterfly, from egg to adult. In Monarchs, an egg is laid on the underside of a milkweed’s large leaf. In the female’s brief time during the first egg-laying process she will deposit 300 to 500 of them — all on milkweed. Oh yes, she may mate again and again, and before her job is done, she will have deposited up to 1,800 eggs. From three to eight days nothing appears to be happening as the eggs stay quietly glued to the bottom of the leaf. Then a slight trembling begins to shake the egg and it slowly splits open, releasing a tiny grayish/green caterpillar which immediately begins to eat its egg case and the area around its feet. There are five stages, known as instars, to the caterpillar’s life. At hatching, the tiny larva is almost translucent, but has a large black head, and is about 1/8 of an inch long. The second instar develops a pattern of white, yellow and black bands on the outside of the growing body. It is now about 1/2 inch in length, and very busy gobbling up as much milkweed as it can hold. That coloration of its growing body is a very visible warning to birds — like bushtits — that it is not a good thing to eat. The third instar caterpillar continues chomping away while on the upper surface of the leaf, safe from predators because of that vivid black, white and yellow striping, and is nearly an inch long. Fourth and fifth instars have a more complex banding pattern with white dots appearing on the prolegs near its back, and if another caterpillar begins to compete with it, a very exciting battle will develop. At full size, the larva will be nearly 2 inches in length. Now comes the time for the miracle of metamorphosis. The caterpillar’s tiny brain has a goal in life: to find what it “thinks” is a safe place on a plant nearby and spin a silk pad on a downward-facing surface. At this point it turns head down and with its hind legs grasps the silken pad. All movement stops.

It hangs in this “J” form for some time then the outer skin of the caterpillar splits open, revealing a lime green chrysalis embellished with golden spots around the exterior. And it is, within that chrysalis, that the miracle of metamorphosis will take place. Oh, how I wish I could be a witness to this biological masterpiece. That fat living caterpillar now begins to dissolve into a genetic “soup,” while Life continues to go on. As the living cells begin to change we see three distinct body parts beginning to form: head, thorax and abdomen. Within those body parts are different eyes, different mouth-parts, a reproductive system, breathing system, brain, and muscles to drive the growing wings and six legs. This will take all of eight to 15 days to complete, and then, the chrysalis will become transparent and within 12 hours its skin will split open and the adult Monarch will emerge. The new adult will begin to pump up its wings with fluid and prepare for flight. The same message of protection is displayed with those big orange and black wings.You, Dear Readers, can play a big part in helping this species work to be successful. If you have a spot on your place that’s damp most of the year, please start a colony of Showy milkweed, or lacking the water, Narrow-leaf milkweed. Then, to make a 100% success of that activity, plant a big pollinator garden, maybe where there was once a lawn or rock-pile. Not only will you hit a home run with milkweed, you’ll have the bases loaded with the pollinator garden. Locally, you can go to Winter Creek Nursery for native milkweed plants (wintercreeknative.com) and Deschutes Land Trust for seeds (deschuteslandtrust. org). In addition, both the Xerces Society (xerces.org) and Monarch Joint Venture (monarchjointventure. org) have excellent information and ideas on how to save Monarchs. Editor’s note: The Facebook group, “Pollinator Pathway Bend” is another helpful resource for information and inspiration on pollinator gardens in the local area.

Is “Cannabis Sober” Truly Sober? Using cannabis and/or CBD may not be for everyone, but it is a legitimate choice for others

R

m

ead ed tb us

ecently, while running a backstage budtending cold brew coffee and iced tea bar at a concert, one of the artists playing asked if I could infuse the cold brew coffee with some CBD-only tincture. I was happy to oblige, even more so when she explained she had recently completed a stint in rehab, and this was her first foray since then using CBD. The term “sober” is a surprisingly divisive term, with myriad definitions that can put individuals at serious odds over the idea of what qualifies. Defined as “the opposite of drunk from alcohol,” it’s often used as half the term, “clean and sober,” which expands that sobriety to include abstaining from all manner of drug use, including pharmaceuticals, street drugs and plant medicines. Except when it doesn’t. As access to regulated medical and adult cannabis has expanded across the U.S., along with the legalization of CBD, both the number of consumers and their reasons for using cannabis have grown. That includes those who forgo consumption of drugs but do continue to use cannabis. That approach is informally known as “California Sober” or “Cannabis Sober.” “Cannabis Sober” is embraced by those who see cannabis use less as a violation of being sober, but rather more a tool to help maintain their sobriety. Their cannabis use may be replacing a harmful intoxicant, temper their interest in using it, or provide benefits such as better sleep that offers fewer side effects than prescribed legal pharmaceuticals. (For some people, the term includes mushrooms and psychedelics, and others include alcohol. For our purposes, we are limiting the term to cannabis use.) Opponents believe that sobriety means eschewing all intoxicants, and cannabis use is a crutch that keeps the user from fully embracing and benefiting from a sober lifestyle. They feel that an intoxicant of any sort, used for any reason, means the user can no longer claim the title of “sober.” It’s an all-ornothing proposition. The vast difference in these belief systems is due in no small part to the complex emotional issues that surround

addictions and over-indulgent behaviors. Someone who has lost a loved one to a fatal overdose can have strong and justified beliefs surrounding the level of strictness for the term “sober.” Others who have gone through the difficult and ongoing work to give up all intoxicants may also have strong opinions on the value/legitimacy of using any intoxicant. While that take is understandable, it discounts the value of the concept of “harm reduction.” It’s an idea most often applied to IV drug abuse, where users are provided clean needles, safe injection sites, and ongoing opportunities to pursue counseling and treatment. That treatment may include medications such as Suboxin and Methadone, which help dampen and satiate an addict’s physical cravings for heroin. Harm reduction takes the approach that not all addictions can be “cured,” and as such, it’s far better to help reduce the damage than hold out for a complete cessation of the intoxicant. Cannabis has demonstrated properties of helping to ease, among other things, stress, depression and anxiety. An argument can be made that if using cannabis helps treat those issues, which may lead some users to take up with harder and more dangerous drugs, shouldn’t it be considered? Others have advocated for cannabis as an “exit drug,” serving as a way for those struggling with addictions to wean themselves off drugs that can be fatal or pose greater long-term risks. If someone finds cannabis use keeps them from using opioids, isn’t that a better choice? Factor in that the U.S. continues to grapple with a Fentanyl epidemic, primarily in counterfeit pills, powders and injections, killing a record number of people. It’s the leading cause of death for those aged 21-45, accounting for nearly 70,000 deaths in a one year period ending in October 2021. Utilizing plant medicines to navigate a healthier path and better choices involves something this country isn’t great at: bodily autonomy. Using cannabis and/or CBD may not be for everyone, but it is a legitimate choice for others.

Spider City brewer Brady Schaner is settling into Bend and his new role as certified beer judge.

B

rady Schaner is one of the newest Certified Beer Judge certification program’s beer judges and is on track to become Bend’s newest certified cicerone. When he passes the arduous exam, he’ll be our town’s ninth. Most of them work at 10 Barrel Brewing, but Schaner, for the past year, has brewed at Spider City Brewing. So what is a BJCP judge and/or a cicerone? Like sommeliers are to wine, these folks have demonstrated a wealth of knowledge about beer styles and how to properly identify them (and, for the latter certification, to serve them). In short, Schaner is proven to be a big ol’ beer nerd. But that didn’t help us get our Burgundy of Belgium. I met up with Schaner at Brother Jon’s Alehouse to celebrate becoming BJCP certified, which is the first place I’ve ever seen Duchesse de Bourgogne on draft. Our server informed us the keg kicked immediately before we ordered, hence, going Duchesse-less. Duchesse is a piquant, sour Flanders Red ale, a style that originated in the Middle Ages and is nicknamed the Burgundy of Belgium for its vinous properties, but we were decidedly drinking and talking beer. He ended up first enjoying a style that’s only deemed ancient or historic in terms of contemporary craft beer—an amber ale—from Backwoods Brewing in Carson, Washington. I got Double Mountain Brewing’s pilsner, spiced up a tad with a kick of rye in the grain bill. Had we drunk at his employer’s taproom, we’d have had no problem finding great beers from among the 20 taps, but it’s good to get out of familiar environs. That said, Schaner and his fiancee are

relatively new to Bend. The Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, native took an awfully circuitous route here, from earning his chemical engineering degree in Pittsburgh to working in his original field in Bavaria, which moved him to South America, where he met the future Mrs. Schaner while backpacking in Patagonia. But it was after attending the Master Brewing Program at the University of California-Davis, one of the world’s most preeminent brewing programs— take that, Germany—that he applied for the brewing opening at Spider City and the couple moved here sight unseen. His one-year anniversary at the brewery is Sept. 7. He’s already chomping at the bit to brew a doppelbock (the strong German lager is his favorite style, especially Tröegenator from Tröegs Independent Brewery in Hershey, Pennsylvania, near Harrisburg) on Spider City’s pilot brewing system for the wedding. Not apropos of this heat wave, Schaner can’t wait to get back on his skis, both on Bachelor and a couple states over in Jackson, Wyoming. He also happens to be in the local dodgeball league, which, considering The Pavilion is open-walled, is sort of outdoors. After a couple pints at Brother Jon’s, we ambled all the way around the corner to Kobold Brewing’s new Lair taproom, which I wrote about for the Source last week, on Bond Street. As if to transport him back to his days living in Munich, Schaner ordered the Heffen ‘n’ Peffen Hefeweizen. I enjoyed the Lair-exclusive Dry Hopped Lager. It just so happened that one of his dodgeball teammates was celebrating his birthday at the taproom. See? He’s ingrained himself in Bend society already.

ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “I’ve swung from ancient vines in the caves of Jamaica,” exults Hoodoo priestess Luisah Teish. “I’ve danced with delight around totem poles and pressed foreheads with Maori warriors. I’ve joked with the pale fox in the crossroads, then wrestled with the jaguar and won. I have embraced great trees between my thighs and spoken words of love to thunder while riding lightning bolts.” I offer Teish’s celebratory brag to inspire you as you formulate plans for the coming weeks and months. What exhilarating adventures will you give yourself? What expansive encounters will you learn from? What travels outside of your comfort zone will you dare? The time is right for upsurges and upturns and upgrades.

Pupil,” Virgo-born Donald Justice speaks of how he spent “a whole week practicing for that moment on the threshold.” I advise you to do the same, Virgo. The goal is to be as prepared as you can be for the upcoming rite of transition—without, of course, being neurotically over-prepared. It’s fine and natural to honor the tension of anticipation, using it as motivation to do your best. One other thing: As you get ready, please have as much fun as possible. Visualize the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel when you’ve reached the other side of the test.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “One is always at home in one’s past,” wrote author Vladimir Nabokov. But I encourage you to rebel against that theory, Libra. For now, find a way to NOT feel at home in your past. Question it, be curious about it, re-evaluate it. My hope is that you will then be motivated to change how your history lives in you. Now is an excellent time to reconfigure your life story, to develop a revised relationship with its plot twists and evolution. Revisit and update some of your memories. Re-evaluate the meanings of key events. Enchanting healings will materialize if you do.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Of all the signs in the zodiac, you Scorpios are most likely to regard that old pop tune by the Animals as your theme song. “I’m just a soul whose intentions are good,” croons lead singer Eric Burdon, “Oh, Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.” But you may have less motivation to express that sentiment in the coming weeks, dear Scorpio. I suspect you will experience record-breaking levels of being seen and appreciated for who you are. For best results, do this: 1. Inform your deep psyche that you have no attachment to being misunderstood. 2. Tell your deep psyche that you would very much like to be well understood.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Unless we are creators, we are not fully alive,” wrote Sagittarian author Madeleine L’Engle. She was referring to everyone, not just people in the arts. She believed that to be soulful humans, we must always make new things, generate fresh possibilities, and explore novel approaches. The restless urge to transform what already exists can be expressed in how we do our jobs, our parenting, our intimate relationships, and every other activity. You are now entering a phase, Sagittarius, when this initiatory energy will be especially available, needed, and valuable.

BOOST ENERGY BALANCE HORMONES JUMPSTART YOUR METABOLISM FIND YOUR HAPPY WEIGHT WITHOUT EVER DIETING AGAIN

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In her poem “Valentine,” Capricorn poet Carol Ann Duffy tells a lover she won’t give her a “red rose or a satin heart.” Instead, her token of affection is an onion, a symbol of multi-layered complexity. “Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,” Duffy writes, “possessive and faithful as we are, for as long as we are.” She adds that the onion will “blind you with tears like a lover.” OK. I understand the tough attitude expressed by Duffy. Romance isn’t a relentlessly sweet, sentimental romp through paradise. But I don’t recommend that you imitate her approach to your love life in the coming weeks and months. Appreciate the sometimes shadowy and labyrinthine convolutions, yes, but don’t make them more

important than beauty and joy and love. How about invoking the symbol of a pomegranate? It represents fertility and rebirth out of the darkness.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be extra expressive with the people and animals you care about. Be even more amusing and generous than usual. Dare to be abundantly entertaining and engaging and empathetic. Make it your goal to draw out your allies’ dormant potentials and inspire them to love themselves even more than they already do. I’ll tell you about the endearing terms that author Vladimir Nabokov called his wife. Consider using them with your dear ones: “My sun, my soul, my song, my bird, my pink sky, my sunny rainbow, my little music, my inexpressible delight, my tenderness, my lightness, my dear life, my dear eyes, kittykin, poochums, goosikins, sparrowling, bird of paradise.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Sometimes, you may feel you’re under the influence of a debilitating spell or hindered by a murky curse. Pisceans are prone to such worries. But here’s a secret. More than any other zodiac sign, you have the power to escape from spells. Even if you have never studied the occult or read a witch’s grimoire, you possess a natural facility for the natural magic that disperses curses. From the depths of your psyche, you can summon the spiritual force necessary to cleanse the gunk and free yourself. Now is a perfect time to prove to yourself that what I’ve said here is true.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky wrote, “All my life, I’ve been going around waiting for something—as if I were waiting in a railway station. And I’ve always felt as if the living I’ve done so far hasn’t actually been real life but a long wait for it—a long wait for something real.” If I could speak with Tarkovsky right now, I would cheerfully tell him that his wait will soon be over. I’d say that in the coming months, Aries people who have been postponing and postponing, who have been standing by and holding on and biding time, will have an excellent chance to begin inhabiting their full, rich destiny. I invite you to imagine what that will feel like.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus poet Sherko Bekas wrote, “Each joy I wear, its sleeves are either too short or too long, too loose or too tight on me. And each sorrow I wear fits as if it were made for me wherever I am.” With this as our starting point, Taurus, I’m pleased to report some good news. In the next three weeks, you will have zero sorrows to try on and wear like a garment. And there will be at least three joys that fit just right. The sleeves will be the correct length, and the form will be neither too loose nor too tight.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Tips on how to get the most out of the coming weeks: 1. Create a big spacious realization by weaving together several small hunches. 2. Keep a little angel on your right shoulder and a little devil on your left shoulder. Enjoy listening to them argue, and don’t get attached to anything they say. 3. Do the unexpected until it becomes expected. Then abandon it and try a new, unexpected experiment. 4. Meditate expansively on the question, “How many careers can I have in one lifetime?” 5. Enhance your home so it feels even more comfortable. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be fluid and flexible while still being rooted and sturdy. Be soft and sensitive even as you are also firm and resolute. Be mostly modest and adaptable, but become assertive and outspoken as necessary. Be cautious about inviting and seeking out challenges, but be bold and brash when a golden challenge arrives. Be your naturally generous self most of the time, but avoid giving too much. Got all that, Cancerian? Carrying out the multifaceted assignments I just described might be nearly impossible for most of the other signs of the zodiac, but they are in your wheelhouse. You are a specialist in fertile complexity.

UNDERSTANDING INTIMACY: By Dr. Jane Guyn

Frustrated in Redmond We’ve been married for over 10

Dear Frustrated, I hear you. Covid has been incredibly difficult for many, many couples. It sounds like in the past, your relationship was very loving and affectionate and now without physical touch it feels very lonely. This is really hard for you since touch is your love language. Central Oregon looks like Honeymoon Heaven during the summer. Of course, lots of the people who are having The Time of Their Lives in Drake Park are on vacation. It looks like they’re getting more than enough physical affection and love. Remember that even though life in Central Oregon is wonderful, you’re still home when you’re here—with all the stressors of daily life: the bills, the upkeep, the family issues. Hopefully, you’re able to enjoy everything the area has to offer, but unless you both make a specific effort to relax, it’ll be tough for your partner to let go of stress enough to connect intimately. This is very common. It’s hard for many of us to get out of our heads enough to get turned on or to feel affectionate at all. Try this: 1. Pretend you’re on vacation for a couple of days. Set up a fun weekend or midweek staycation—you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make this work. Clear your calendar. Silence your devices. If you’ve got kids, have them stay with friends for a couple of days—and later return the favor. Or see

years and we’re best friends. But these days, I can’t get my partner to give me any touch at all. By Dr. Jane Guyn Dear Dr. Jane, My relationship has been hanging by a thread for quite a while now, but these days I’m almost ready to call it quits. We’ve been married for over 10 years and we’re best friends. In the past, we were loving and affectionate. But these days, I can’t get my partner to give me any touch at all. This is hard for me because physical touch is my love language. I see people all over town who look like they’re in love. In our marriage, there’s no hand holding or any other kind of personal touch anymore— not when we’re out for a walk, not even when we’re home alone. I know we’ve been under a lot of stress since COVID and that a real vacation would help, but that’s just not in the budget right now. What do you suggest? From, Frustrated in Redmond

if Nana and Grampa might be able to help you. Even without an overnight this can be great. 2. Prepare for your time alone. Talk about what might be fun to do (or not to do) together. Would you rather spend time just hanging out or get up early for a hike to Tumalo Falls? Get things settled at home so you don’t have to worry about upkeep while you’re “gone.” Tidy up. Find a dog sitter or enjoy your fur babies if that sounds fun. 3. Pre-plan food for your staycation adventure. Include something sexy like an assortment of charcuterie items: salami, thinly sliced apples and strawberries, fancy cheeses. Select something to drink that’s refreshing and special. When the time comes, it might feel sexy to feed each other, or to just savor what you’ve prepared. You don’t have to spend a fortune to have beautiful food that tastes amazing and at the same time, nourishes your bodies and your connection. 4. Put expectations aside. Let the staycation be what it is. I hate to tell you this, but if you bring big expectations for wild and crazy Staycation Sex, you’re likely to be disappointed. Pressure is the last thing either of you need if you’re going to rekindle something sweet between you. That said, as you’re getting ready for this time together, agree on a purpose; maybe something like “to let go of stress so that we can both explore how we’ve been feeling,” or “to talk a little,” or “to share time that’s loving and relaxed.” See what you come up with as a couple, and then see where your staycation takes you… with ease. Of course, Hotel Sex is a great way to get things going, but Staycation Sex (or just Staycation Connection) can be just as much fun—and a lot less spendy. You got this. Xoxo Dr. Jane

Answering questions from our readers the least. Earlier this week the Federal Trade Commission fined Opendoor $62 million for deceptive practices. The FTC found that Opendoor told customers that they would make more money selling to them versus the traditional way of listing and selling a home with an agent, when in fact the FTC found most of the time sellers made less money than those who used a real estate agent. Opendoor bought just shy of 37,000 homes last year, while one of their largest competitors, Zillow, shuttered their ibuyer program last year after losing close to half a billion dollars in quarter 3 of 2021. This is my opportunity as a real estate professional and “competitor” of these groups to point out that these ibuyers aren’t in the business of paying top dollar, in the same way someone looking to “flip” a home is also not paying top dollar. The reality is they need to have their own profit built into the deal, and this is accomplished by purchasing your home for below market value. Q: Which neighborhood is the best in Bend? – Renee U. A: It depends. Honestly, everyone is going to have a different answer, much like asking about favorite a brewery in town. It’s hard to narrow the list and of course, opinions will vary. Some people want large lots out of town; other people want to walk to their favorite restaurants and coffee shops. Still others just simply want a place to call their own. I suggest taking a few walks or bike rides through neighborhoods at various times to get a feel for how they really are. Hope you find what you are looking for!

VOLUME 26 ISSUE 32 / AUGUST 11, 2022 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY / BEST OF ISSUE

I

thought we would switch up the style a little bit this week and answer some questions that have been submitted to us over the last few weeks. Q: I am curious as to what percentage of residential real estate sales in Deschutes County are cash buyers (no financing/mortgage needed)? Also, has this percentage changed over the last few years? -Jim G A: Thanks for reaching out, Jim, thanks to our friends over at Central Oregon Association of Realtors® we were able to get that information for you! To simply answer your question, in the first quarter of this year 25% of single family residences were purchased in cash. In quarter two we saw this number grow slightly to 27% of buyers of SFR were cash. The one thing I would like to point out is that in quarter 1 of this year, rates were quite low, and they really started creeping up as quarter two was closing out. So, I may need to update this once we have more data from quarter three and four of this year (update coming). Q: What are ibuyers in Real Estate? How does it work? – Sarah H. A: Appreciate you reaching out with the question, Sarah! Basically, ibuyers use technology to evaluate and analyze real estate markets and with large amounts of capital they can make offers on homes and can close quickly. Often, they then do light rehab work on the home and relist the property for sale in hopes of making a profit. The benefit for the seller is a “simple,” “smooth” transaction with less stress as their buying process is streamlined. That is a simplistic summary of a complex business plan. Results have varied, to say
