Live Music & Nightlife Kaycee Anseth and Shelly Hopson work on the mural, “Two For Joy,” in the northern tunnel of the Franklin Avenue underpass Tuesday afternoon. Anseth spearheaded the project along with Moey Newbold of Central Oregon LandWatch as a way to revitalize the often-used and yet often-abused space near downtown Bend. Anseth said the “Two For Joy” theme is based on the children’s nursery rhyme about magpies, in which the number of magpies one sees is an indicator of one’s luck. The mural includes two birds at opposing ends of the tunnel—hence, “Two For Joy." Anseth hopes to have the project completed this week.

s we get ready for our annual Best of Central Oregon issue—our biggest issue of the year—we have “Bests” on our minds. In that vein, we decided to kick off “Best Of” season a week early and present one of our “Staff Picks” for Bests right now. First it was a Bend bag ban. Then it became a state bag ban. Sometimes, the “best” of something is the thing that actually gets done. While the Bend City Council did the environmentally conscious thing over the past year in taking aim at curbing the amount of single-use plastic generated in the city, it turns out that the effort was mis-timed. Ultimately, Bend’s ban became superseded by Oregon state law. City Councilor Bill Moseley seemed to be looking into a crystal ball when he voted against the city ban, declaring in December that a ban on single-use plastic bags should come from the state, not individual cities. In June, Gov. Kate Brown signed HB 2509, which “prohibits retail establishments from providing single-use checkout bags to customers, except in certain cases,”—signing the bill just 10 days before Bend’s ban would have gone into effect. While it was something of a last-minute scramble, Bend leaders opted not to put the city’s single-use plastic

bag ban into effect July 1, opting instead to wait for the state ban to go into effect Jan. 1, 2020. The Bend City Council voted to repeal its plastic bag ban July 17, with a second reading and vote that would make the repeal official scheduled Aug. 7.. “Councilors repealed the City ordinance to comply with State law and help minimize confusion between the City’s ordinance and State law,” was the statement on the City of Bend’s website. The rules are largely the same— though Bend would have imposed a minimum 10-cent fee for alternative bags, whereas the state’s rules dictate only a minimum 5-cent fee. Overall, a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags at restaurants and grocery check-outs has a bigger impact. Still, it was a big inconvenience to local retailers, poised to make the switch, to have to pivot back to business as usual with just about a week and a half’s worth of notice. Considering that the governor signed the bill into law June 20, and that it was voted upon in the Senate June 11, Bend might have acted faster to make that pivot easer for retailers. As it stands right now, grocery stores and restaurants have the option to ditch the single-use plastic before the state ban goes into place. Kudos to those who are doing so. 






On Sunday, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown issued a press release that House Bill 2437 is one of the bills that she may veto before Aug. 9. WaterWatch of Oregon is urging the Governor to indeed veto this bill. We also want to use this opportunity to clarify details surrounding it muddied by debate and those who support it, including The Bulletin’s editorial board. The bill, which passed out of the House and Senate and currently sits on the Governor’s desk, has been touted as an agricultural channel maintenance bill that will streamline the existing process of unclogging ditches. In actuality, it could have widespread negative effects on Oregon’s invaluable rivers, streams and wetlands. This is why 23 conservation groups opposed HB 2437. Not a single conservation group testified in support of it. HB 2437 is not limited to man-made irrigation ditches as those championing it have implied. The bill allows removal of up to 3,000 cubic yards of material from both intermittent and perennial streams without obtaining a removal fill permit. This is a 5,900% increase over current law, which provides an exemption from permitting for the removal of up to 50 cubic yards of material. HB 2437 is not limited to dry streams as some have asserted, but also impacts wet streams. Specifically, HB 2437 greatly expands the current removal fill provisions for general permits on wet streams, including streams that provide essential salmonid habitat, without providing for any removal fill cap whatsoever. As to the effects on wetlands, some have declared that sediment removed from channels cannot be spread in a wetland or converted wetland. Not so. Section 5(1)(b) allows the placement of up to 3,000 cubic yards of material removed during maintenance onto wetlands for up to one year. This undermines decades of work to restore Oregon’s wetlands and the benefits they provide—fish and wildlife habitat, clean water and natural water storage that is often used by people WaterWatch is also concerned that this bill does not allow for public notice and comment. The bill eliminates notice

requirements for many state agencies, all federal natural resource agencies, tribes, county governments, and even adjacent landowners, all of whom currently get notice for projects over the 50 cubic yard exemption limit. The waters of this state belong to all citizens of Oregon, but HB 2437 cuts out citizen review and critical agency oversight for projects that could potentially destroy some of our state’s most treasured resources. Other proponents of the bill have stated that the current 50 cubic yard exemption is actually a limit to what farmers can get removal permits for. Under current law, there is no limit whatsoever on what farmers can remove from ditches; they simply have to get a removal fill permit. Some might not want to get permits, or pay fees, but this is not reason enough to put Oregon’s wetlands, rivers and streams at risk. The majority of Oregon’s wetlands have already been lost to human development. And our state’s freshwater resources are already under enormous pressure due to accelerating climate change. Oregon should be passing laws to protect ecologically and economically valuable wetlands and streams, not fast tracking their destruction. Gov. Brown should veto HB 2437. Respectfully, — WaterWatch of Oregon


In last week’s Aug. 1 issue of the Source Weekly, we ran a review of the new Quentin Tarantino movie, “Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood,” written by our multitalented and dependable film reviewer, Jared Rasic. Double checking the film’s title, I went online to consult the official movie poster, which has it, “Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood,” so I changed it in all references, swapping the ellipsis to appear directly in front of “Hollywood.” I reckoned that the movie’s poster had to be the ultimate reference point. Turned out, I was wrong. I then noticed that the Aug. 5 & 12 issue of the New Yorker, in its review of the film, also has the title as “Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood.” (Film critic Anthony Lane also points out in his review that on a theater marquee shown in the film, displaying the movie, “Lady in Cement,” the name below it is spelled Racquel Welch when the correct spelling is Raquel. Lane surmises that the error is “deliberate,” without explaining why.) This past weekend I watched the movie, and there it was in big bold letters at the film’s end: “Once Upon a

Hollywood.” And that has to be the correct placement of the ellipsis. I figure that what is shown up on the Big Screen during the actual film has got to be the ultimate reference, overruling the movie poster. Apologies, Jared, and memo to Quentin: Dude...make up your mind already! —Richard Sitts, Source copy editor


In the United States, there have been 251 mass shootings in the past 216 days. (I am writing this on Aug. 4. I hope and pray there will not be another one before this letter makes it to print, but the data suggests something different). The Gun Violence Archive says there have been 33,028 total shooting incidents in 2019 as of Sunday, resulting in 8,734 deaths and 17,308 injuries. These incidents are happening across the United States, across socioeconomic status, race and across partisan lines. What has our President done about this? This is on his watch and he cannot blame the Democrats or anyone else for this. What have our senators, our representatives done on this issue besides send their prayers and wishes? We need to demand better gun legislation, better background checks and provide better mental health support for our people. This is about taking care of our people—from young to old, from grandparents to students and children. Why is this a political issue? Can we please close the gap

between Democrats and Republicans and agree that we need to keep Americans safe and free from mass shootings? —Laura Pea

DA Cautiously Optimistic with Budget Result ‘Hybrid’ solution involves some new staff, some work changes By Hilary Corrigan


istrict Attorney John Hummel is looking forward to seeing how a “creative” solution plays out after a back-and-forth with the Deschutes County Board of Commissioners in the spring over funding he requested for nearly a dozen new positions. “We ended up in a good place,” Hummel said. Hummel had argued that due to a high workload, his office was not representing victims of crime well—and that guilty people were acquitted at times, because the office was not well prepared. He had sought 11 new positions, including four attorneys and more victims’ advocates and trial assistants. He complained that the county’s proposed budget in the spring lacked sufficient funding for the positions needed in a fast-growing county with a lot of visitors. And he warned that funding no new positions would

mean the office would stop prosecuting many low-level cases and cut back on some of its other services. Funding only some of the spots, Hummel said, would force the office to prioritize serious cases over lower-level ones. At the end of June, commissioners approved a county budget that provides the DA’s office with about $7.8 million, funding five new positions—two deputy district attorneys, two trial assistants and an administrative supervisor. Grant money will fund a sixth position, a victim’s advocate. The total county budget for fiscal year 2020—running from July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020—is more than $428.1 million, with an operating budget of about $227.8 million. “In retrospect, I’m pleased with this result,” Hummel said, calling it a “hybrid” that led to reducing only some services. Post-budget approval, the DA’s office will not prosecute misdemeanor driving

while suspended crimes for those with zero or one prior convictions. The office will also develop guidelines with the probation department so that probation officers resolve probation violations rather than sending them to the DA’s office to prosecute. In 2018, the office prosecuted more than 500 driving while suspended cases and more than 700 probation violation cases, according to information from the office. To Hummel, not pursuing those two areas also makes good public policy sense. For instance, he expects that since they won’t be sending probation violation cases to be prosecuted, probation officers may wind up doing more supervising to figure out why those on probation fail to complete community service or stop attending drug treatment classes. “In an odd way, it’s really interesting to see how this turns out,” Hummel said. By treating the first or second suspended license offenses as the equivalent of a speeding ticket, Deschutes County will align with most counties where a city municipal court handles that type of offense. “We’re kind of creating a quasi-municipal court in my office,” Hummel said, adding that he was cautiously optimistic on the changes. Hummel expects to finish hiring for the new spots within three weeks and

for training to take a month or more. He expects to get a better sense of how the new plan is working toward the end of the year. That’s when he’ll meet with the Board of Commissioners again to reassess. “I think the public’s going to see much better results in my office because we’re going to be able to focus our resources,” Hummel said. Last winter, Hummel commissioned an analysis of staffing and workload at his office. Among other findings, the review stated that the workload was too high and unsustainable, noting insufficient time to prepare for trials and to review evidence. The DA’s office internal review noted that area law enforcement agencies had grown, with 25 additional officers and deputies over the last two years, leading to more arrests and work for the DA’s office—a pace that the office could not keep up with. The office had 1,000 more cases in 2018 than the year before, low staff morale and a backlog of cases, according to the review. County Administrator Tom Anderson said the report showed the workload growth in Hummel’s office. “That was recognized,” by the county’s budget committee, Anderson said, adding that the committee and the Board of Commissioners tried to meet Hummel halfway with the final budget result. 


Cuts to Public Advisory Groups Spark Concern

U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

Senators highlight the importance of public participation in BLM decisions



regon’s senators want to spare the volunteer groups that advise the Bureau of Land Management from proposed cuts, warning that getting rid of the groups could hinder the public from managing public lands. An executive order from President Donald Trump in June called for each executive department and agency across the federal government to evaluate the need for its current advisory committees and cut at least one-third of them by the end of September. In a July 23 letter to Trump, Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley raised concerns over the impact the order would have on the Bureau of Land Management’s Resource Advisory Councils. The senators, both Democrats, called for exempting BLM’s councils. “RACs carry considerable weight in their work to inform public land management decisions on issues related to forestry, recreation, grazing, mining, oil and gas exploration, and wildfire management,” the letter stated. “RACs have a history of promoting collaboration and helping agencies prevent or resolve litigation.” Trump’s order—“Evaluating and Improving the Utility of Federal Advisory Committees”—specifies that the cuts should include committees whose goals have been met, whose work has become obsolete, whose main functions have been taken on by another entity or whose costs of operating have exceeded the benefits they provide. Agencies could seek waivers.

Advisory committees function under rules set by the Federal Advisory Committee Act, meant to recognize the merits of getting advice from the nation’s citizens while also ensuring that advice is relevant, objective and public, and that the committees comply with various cost and record-keeping requirements. More than 1,000 advisory committees with more than 60,000 members now advise the president and the executive branch on issues that include drugs, schools, highways and nuclear waste. The letter from Wyden and Merkley noted that BLM created its resource advisory councils to engage local citizens, especially in rural areas, to help manage U.S public lands, the letter stated. BLM has 37 of those councils across the West, made up of 10 to 15 volunteers from various backgrounds and interests. The letter warned that limiting the number of BLM’s councils, along with BLM’s delays in approving new council members, would hinder public participation in managing public resources. Oregon has six RACs. They meet two to four times a year, with members appointed for three-year terms, serving without a salary but getting reimbursed for travel and other expenses. The Central Oregon counties of Deschutes, Jefferson, Crook and others fall within the John Day-Snake RAC that also covers northeastern Oregon. The group has 15 members, five each for three topic areas—commodities, including commercial recreation, minerals, energy

A map from BLM’s website shows the boundaries of the six resource advisory councils in Oregon that advise the agency.

Clark said of the RAC. The latest project the John Day-Snake RAC will work on involves developing a management plan for new land that BLM acquired on the John Day River in Gilliam County. BLM got about 4,000 acres last year and will get about 7,000 later this month, Clark said. She expects the RAC to increase the outreach to the public and get more people involved in crafting what the recreation will look like out at the site that includes steep river slopes, sagebrush, bighorn sheep, deer and a boat launch. According to information in a federal database that tracks the more than 1,000 advisory committees across the federal government, the John Day-Snake RAC is tasked with independently reviewing land management practices and plans, and making formal recommendations that represent an agreed-upon view of the diverse group. Many special-interest groups make similar recommendations, but as a whole, the RAC themselves represent no single interest, according to the database’s committee detail page on its website. “As such, this is an invaluable tool with which to review land management practices and to make appropriate recommendations without fear of undue influence by one singular interest or another,” the web page stated. 

and timber; conservation, including environmental, history and wild horses; and community, including the public at large, academia, and representatives from tribes and state and local government. Lisa Clark, public affairs officer with BLM in Prineville, serves as coordinator for that RAC. Clark said she does not know whether the RAC, formed in 1995, will continue after the cuts—or what prompted the proposal. “We didn’t get any information,” she said. But she praised the John Day-Snake RAC and the local knowledge that it has brought to the federal government’s attention on big issues, saying that its members have brought the voice of their communities to the BLM. She recalled the RAC’s input when BLM proposed a fee to float the John Day River. The council advised that because the area is a more primitive experience and attracts a lot of locals from rural communities, the fee should be smaller than proposed. The BLM agreed and followed that advice. Clark also noted the way the RAC’s liberal and conservative members discuss issues at the same table. “I couldn’t value it more highly,”

Dispersed recreation could help with overuse issues. A first step toward that goal: An education into how the public can use its lands By Nicole Vulcan Locals such as Jason Bagby of the Cascadia Adventure Film Festival advocate for people—and especially fellow locals—to find and explore sites seen less often in Instagram geotags, such as Paulina Peak and the Newberry National Volcanic Monument (seen here), and to think twice about geotagging those sites themselves.


any people turn to the outdoors as a form of relaxation, a way to get away from it all. To get away, more specifically, from other humans. Some balk at seeing and hearing other humans in the wilderness— so tension arises because the public lands upon which most recreation takes place belong not to just one person, but to the American people as a whole. It might suck to have your moment of repose interrupted by the call of another human, but that person has just as much right to be there as anyone else. The Wilderness Act of 1964—which set aside 9.1 million acres of wilderness areas across the United States— introduced the notions of “increasing population, accompanied by expanding settlement and growing mechanization,” and set aside those lands “in their natural condition,” in order to “secure for present and future generations the benefits of wilderness.” Those wilderness areas are just a portion of the state, federal and locally managed public lands where anyone is allowed to recreate, and even camp out, for extended periods of time, often for free. As Lisa Machnik, staff officer for Recreation, Lands and Partnership on the Deschutes National Forest, puts it, “Part of the discussion always comes down to, these are public lands, and they’re open to all.” As the population and tourism numbers in Central Oregon continue to grow, questions around how to handle overuse will continue to arise. One solution, for officials at the Deschutes and Willamette national forests, lies in limiting use and introducing a permit quota system at certain popular trailheads starting in 2020.

Another solution: a public that’s educated around its right to use public lands, which could become even more invested in the lands’ future, and more involved in its care. A picture of overuse It’s a typical summer Saturday. The trails are primed after a quick rain, the sun beats into every crevice, the snowcapped mountains and cerulean lakes are beckoning—and next to the Green Lakes trailhead, the visitor is greeted with 100 other cars, which carried in the visitor’s many trail companions for the hike ahead. It’s scenes like that final one that have many Central Oregonians aiming to put up the “full” sign along the Cascade Lakes Highway every summer. And it’s why the Green Lakes trailhead is one of a handful of sites slated to fall under the new permit system starting next year. “Finding that balance between allowing people unfettered access— allowing them the freedom to find new places and explore versus getting to the point where we need to take managerial action because too many people have found those places—it’s a really tricky thing,” said Kevin Larkin, district ranger for the DNF’s Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District. “In my experience at least, it’s only been achievable on a case-by-case, site-by-site, location-by-location basis.” DNF spans 1.7 million acres, just one part of a vast system of public lands held in trust for the enjoyment of the American people, for the preservation of wild places, and, increasingly under the Trump Administration, for resource extraction. According to data compiled by the Center for American Progress,

through a series of executive orders, the current President has removed protections for over 13,498 million acres of public land, the majority of which involve mineral withdrawals. Between the Forest Service’s lands and the roughly 1.5 million acres managed by the Prineville District Office of the Bureau of Land Management, Bend, Redmond and Sisters are literally sandwiched by public lands— representing a nearly endless span of opportunity to recreate somewhere that doesn’t involve battling the other cars parked precariously along the Cascade Lakes Highway. “In general, I don’t think that a good portion of the American public understand the opportunities they have to go and camp off the beaten path a little bit, dispersed, and experience their public lands in a very different environment,” says Jeff Kitchens, field manager for the BLM’s Deschutes Resource Area, part of the Prineville office. “The number of places like that is endless,” he said. So why are so many people duking it out, battling traffic at a handful of popular spots? Using public lands Some blame the pervasive use of geotags on social media for the proliferation of people at certain spots. Some point to the work of local visitors’ bureaus, tasked with promoting the region. Still others say there’s a lack of knowledge by the general public about its right to use public lands. On that last point, here’s the superfast primer: Everyone, regardless of background or status, has the right to recreate on public lands, and to stay overnight—with some restrictions—for roughly two weeks at a

time, depending on the land. In the Deschutes National Forest, for example, the limit for “dispersed camping” is 14 days in one place. After that, users must move more than 5 “road miles” away from that original spot. “Sometimes there is a lack of awareness about dispersed camping,” says Macknik. “A lot of people do it, and there’s another huge group of people who don’t know that A. it’s allowed, and B. what the rules and best practices are around it.” While Machnik encourages users to check with the particular land manager—whether it be the National Forest, BLM or state, county or local land managers—to verify what’s allowed on that land and how long they can be there, the general best practices are pretty simple: Leave No Trace, don’t bush-whack new trails, put out your fires and don’t be a jerk. Pick up your trash, bury your human waste in a cat hole at least 6 inches deep, and ensure you’re not doing that human business within 200 feet of a waterway, in addition to choosing a camp site at least that distance from water. If what you’re doing is having a negative effect on someone else’s experience—such as having a late-night party with lots of yelling—don’t do it. The BLM’s Kitchens doesn’t just work for a public lands agency—he also regularly seeks out opportunities for solitude on public lands. While he recognizes that developed campgrounds and their myriad creature comforts can have their value in terms of managing resources for the greater good, that’s not his weekend jam. Kitchens described how, on a recent trip, he and his family spent two days in a “high country” location fewer than 60

Nate Wyeth

miles from Bend, only seeing one other car in the distance the entire time. Back where he grew up, on the east coast of the U.S., driving two hours might only get one outside the metro area, he said. In Central Oregon, driving for that same span of time means the majority of Oregon is within reach—ensuring he doesn’t necessarily have to go where anyone else is staying. He’s quick to point out, however, that dispersing people across less-concentrated areas comes with considerations. “Developed sites were set up for specific reasons—to concentrate use, to manage use and to limit impacts to resources—especially when these sites are adjacent to more sensitive sites or resources,” Kitchens said. “The opportunity to go out and disperse yourself across the land is an opportunity to reduce concentration, but you also have to do it sensibly and you have to do it in an educated and informed manner. Otherwise, you take a chance on creating more impacts than on a developed site.” At home on public lands Public lands are where I met Craig Bierly, retired from a career in aerospace, whose “business card” reads “Doing what I want since 2008.” Bierly is something of a legend in the mountain biking community—though I didn’t know him until a day about nine weeks ago, when he was pulling into a semi-established dispersed spot near a bike trail in the Deschutes National Forest and came across my huddled form, hugging a dislocated shoulder and broken scapula. As a longtime mountain biker, he describes how mountain biking used to be “a lifestyle,” and laments how today, it’s more of a “competitive sport.” Likewise, he’s enlightened me about a life lived primarily on public lands.

Spreading out the load The impacts of overuse can be numerous, including “biophysical impacts” such as “trampling, campfires and wood collection, tree damage, wildlife disturbance and trash,” according to Wilderness Connect, a collaborative website formed by W.A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation’s Wilderness Institute  at The University of Montana, as well as the  Arthur Carhart National Wilderness Training Center  and the  Aldo Leopold Wilderness

Research Institute—both federal agencies. In terms of social impact, “13% of respondents surveyed in 19 Oregon and Washington wildernesses could identify at least one place within a wilderness to which they would not return, with crowding being the most cited reason,” the project stated. Some see the advent of more dispersed camping and recreation spread farther afield as a means of spreading out the load. Jason Bagby is a local photographer, videographer and the founder of the Cascadia Adventure Film Festival, which makes its debut Sept. 5-7 as Central Oregon’s first home-grown outdoors film fest. He’s also an advocate for dispersed recreation as a means of reducing impacts in certain areas. In addition to showing films covering water issues, climbing, mountain biking and trail running at the festival, Bagby and his team are debuting an as-yet-unnamed film on sustainable recreation, sponsored by Visit Bend—the entity tasked with promoting Bend tourism. “A big part of the reason that we’re creating this sustainability film is to try and educate, to create more awareness, both for the locals—especially for the locals who are somewhat bitter about, hey, Green Lakes is always busy. Well, guess what, even as a local, there’s a lot of other areas that we can venture out into,” Bagby said. “When we go out and explore, I think we all need to ask ourselves, does this place need more attention? And if it doesn’t, and I still want to post about that, I’m going to tag it responsibly, or I’m going to simply go and try and find a new place to adventure, doing it under the current guidelines and restrictions that the Forest Service currently places on the backcountry,” Bagby said. “Tag responsibly” is a something of a mantra among sustainably minded outdoor enthusiasts of late. What it can mean: Making the choice not to add a geolocation to social media posts, so that those areas don’t become subject Nicole Vulcan

Retired from a career in the aerospace industry, Craig Bierly makes his home in a Sprinter he customized himself—often found parked on public lands.

to over-exposure on social media, which can lead to overuse in real life. Still, Bagby does draw a pretty direct line between experiencing a place, and the potential to work for its good. “One of our goals as a film, as a partnership with Visit Bend, is to focus on the areas of dispersement that need traffic,” he said. “I think in order to advocate for something you have to have experienced it. I think that’s sending people out to an area such as Newberry or the Badlands—that from a distance might not look that interesting—but when you’re there and the wildflowers are blooming, it’s an incredible place.” Public lands for all Delving into the topic of public lands and only discussing dispersed recreation is like opening up a can of chili and only eating one bean. The topic of public lands camping, in itself, conjures the conundrums of homelessness and public lands’ use as a refuge for displaced people. It brings up the controversies around the current administration’s plays for more mining and oil and gas extraction. It raises the issue of Regional Advisory Councils, and how under that same Administration, their numbers may soon be greatly reduced (see this week’s News page). It hearkens us back to the 2016 standoff at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and the topic of grazing fees for ranchers, and what rights we have to make personal profit by using public lands. It brings up any number of issues not even named here. But as Bagby puts it, “Proper education, proper exposure, proper awareness is the way we can start to advocate for areas and lessen our impact.” As Larkin at the Bend-Fort Rock District said, “The Forest Service is an agency founded very much on the notion that these are public lands for the public to use at their discretion— certainly within bounds. But we’re also founded on this philosophical principle of ‘the greatest good for the greatest number for the longest amount of time’ and that’s one of our foundational ethics. And so we have an obligation to do what we need to, to maintain conditions so that the next generation and the generation after that and the generation after that can have that same experience when they go to a place— that they don’t go to a degraded landscape that’s been beaten down over years and decades.” For Kitchens, the solution lies not just in educating people about the many places they can go—but also in looking at public lands more holistically. “I do believe that moving forward we do not have the ability to simply look at one land management ownership or one land management area in tunnel vision anymore. We have to start looking at things collectively,” Kitchens said. “We have start to looking collectively, have to start creating strategies, that as we get this increased use, we are able to provide enough outreach and information to hopefully disperse the use so that not everybody is going to one certain area at a certain time of year.” 


Stay tuned next week, when we continue our coverage of public lands, looking at the current regulatory environment.

“I was a Boy Scout as a teenager and went to Philmont Scout Ranch in ’64, at 14, and that exposed me to backpacking. In 1975 I took my first backpacking vacation—my first trip by myself,” Bierly explained over beers at the site he occupied one recent night near Bend. “That was in Pennsylvania, so it was on state land. In 1969 and ’70 I worked for the Forest Service here in Oregon, and at that point, I learned that you could camp on Forest Service lands without permits or campgrounds or anything.” Today, he knows not everyone has that same knowledge. “I encounter people at times that just say, hey, where can you camp, and it’s like, duh, it’s known. Where have you been?” Bierly joked. Bierly—who moves around on various public lands in the U.S. throughout the year—recognizes that public lands come at a price. Not only is the public paying for the right to use them—but there’s also the inherent responsibility to keep things clean, and to give back. “It’s free in terms of I’m not paying for it this way, but citizens are taxpayers, and my taxes go to pay for the public lands,” Bierly said. “I have several spots in the country that are kind of a home base. Bend is one of them, Sedona [Arizona] is another. I belong to bike clubs in both places, and when I find trail work in places, I participate. Yesterday, I worked with COTA [Central Oregon Trail Alliance] and we brushed Farewell. It gives me a connection to the community.”

By L. Kent Wolgamott


or 40 years, The B-52s have been bringing a new wave dance party to clubs, ballrooms, theaters, arenas and amphitheaters around the country. “We just like to keep the energy high, get the audience on their feet and having a good time,” said singer Fred Schneider, who’s also been known to bang on a cowbell. “I’ve never heard any complaints about our live show. Never.” And that show aims at getting people up to dance, even if it’s in a stuffy concert hall where patrons usually sit and appreciate the music. “People usually stand up anyway,” Schneider said. “We’re not a sit-down band. That’s because the band’s catchy combo of dance and surf music, filled with unusually tuned and played guitars, is irresistibly danceable. Quirkier songs, such as “Quiche Lorraine” and “Mesopotamia” bring smiles and even more fun. That sound and the songs, Schneider said, come from the combination of elements brought by each member of the original B-52s lineup: singers himself, Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson with Cindy’s brother Ricky and Keith Strickland on guitars. Sadly, Ricky Wilson died from complications related to AIDS in 1985, at the age of 32. “Keith and Ricky were very original musicians,” Schneider said. “Ricky had three strings on his guitar, sometimes four. He was very creative. He liked Joni Mitchell a lot and used open tuning. He was really admired by a lot of guitarists. Keith plays a variety of instruments and he’s amazing at it. “I wrote poetry in high school and college that was sort of surreal and humorous.

Joseph Cultice

The B-52s have a host of fan favorites—and say they plan to play plenty of them during this weekend’s show in Bend.

I brought that aspect to the lyrics,” he said. “Kate liked folk music and played guitar. Cindy liked to sing. She’s a creative poet too. We all brought that together.” They brought it together in Athens, Georgia, in 1976, jamming for their first time after sharing a flaming volcano drink at a Chinese restaurant. “I was visiting from Atlanta,” Schneider said. “I was really bored living in Atlanta. I decided, after we jammed and saw all my friends, to move to Athens. Then we got together to jam (regularly). There was actually nothing to do in Athens.” The usual view of Athens in the late ‘70s is it had a thriving music community that produced bands like R.E.M. “Not at all,” Schneider said. “There was no scene whatsoever. We had to play the folk club. They didn’t want us until we sold out.” The quintet’s first gig came on Feb. 14, 1977. “I had some friends who were

having a Valentine’s party and they asked me if we’d play it,” Schneider said. “We didn’t even have a name yet. I told them ‘We have a gig if we want it.’ We took it and played the same set twice.” Taking its name from a ‘40s beehive hairdo that resembled the nose cone on the B-52 bomber, dressing thrift-store chic and delivering its humorous, quirky music, the group played in Athens and Atlanta. Then it ventured out to, among other places, New York, where it played now legendary clubs CBGB and The Mudd Club, becoming the first Athens band to get national attention. “When record labels started coming to Athens and Atlanta trying to get us to sign their crappy contracts, we knew something was going on here,” Schneider said. “Once we signed with Warners (Warner Bros. Records), it was ‘Here we go.’ We’ve had a good run and we’re still going strong.

In the middle of that run, 1989 to be precise, came “Love Shack,” the band’s biggest hit—a song that Schneider saved from abandonment. “I wouldn’t let it go,” he said. “They were sort of giving up on it. I thought ‘We’ve got to do something with this.’ Don Was (producer) came up with the idea of putting two parts together. It wasn’t anything brilliant. But it worked.” Still, “Love Shack” was far from an instant hit. “Radio wouldn’t take it at first except for college and independent, which is why we always have time for college and independent now,” Schneider said. “I don’t think our record label knew what to do with it. We had to beg radio stations to play ‘Love Shack.’ Now you can’t get away from it.” Schneider can’t escape any of the B-52s classics, but that doesn’t bother him. “I spend more time thinking about stage patter than I do about whether I like this song or not,” he said. “I want to say something that can get people to go ‘What is he talking about?’ And then come out with a song.” Expect the upcoming show at the Les Schwab Amphitheater to include the songs fans want to hear and dance to. What they don’t include is new material. The band’s most recent album was 2008’s “Funplex,” the disc on which it changed its name from The B-52’s to The B-52s.  The B-52s with special guests OMD and Berlin

Slowing Down, Maybe

George Clinton comes to Bend ahead of his retirement—but he’s not quite ready to let it all go


William Thoren




Hours: M-S 8:30am-10pm Sunday 8:30am-9pm

2205 NE Division Street 541-550-7325

Friday’s show may be the last chance to see George Clinton before he retires—though the longtime funk star is also contemplating giving it another year.


eorge Clinton may have recently announced his retirement, but the 78-year-old funk icon shows no signs of slowing down. The multi-tasking musical mastermind not only released “Medicaid Fraud Dogg” last year, the first Parliament studio outing since 1980’s “Trombipulation,” but also just returned from a recent tour with protégés The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in May.  And while he’s leading the charge on the concert trail for the 24-odd musicians that take the stage under the P-Funk banner, the New Jersey native is having second thoughts about stepping back. “The group is so hot right now. I want to make sure that they [continue down this path]. I may end up staying one more year. But I’ll know by November,” Clinton said in a recent phone interview. The oversized influence of George Clinton’s musical legacy can’t be emphasized enough. Aside from laying the bedrock for funk, alongside James Brown and Sly Stone, the one two-punch of Parliament, Funkadelic, the Brides of Bootzilla, Bootsy Collins and all the other musical branches that emerged from the Clinton musical tree, provided the roots for hip-hop as well. And while it would be easy for Clinton to stay in nostalgia-act mode, the septuagenarian funkateer and his son, Tracey Lewis, used “Fraud Dogg” to delve into Atlanta’s trap music scene. It’s something concert-goers can expect to experience firsthand this Friday at Oregon Spirit Distillers.  “Oh man, it’s like yesteryear and today at the same time. It’s the P-Funk vibe evolved throughout the times that we’ve been around, including the hip-hop version of it. You’ve got the sound of Atlanta meets Led Zeppelin, you know what I’m sayin’?,” he said with a laugh. “It’s the new trap music and we electrified it. It’s such a brand-new vibe that we took advantage of it.” While Clinton’s earliest musical memory is of his 20-something mother and aunt dancing to Louis Jordan’s “Caledonia” and “Saturday Night Fish Fry” when he was only 3 or 4, the need to hustle and feed this appetite of musical creativity can be traced back

to seventh grade and his job sweeping up at a music store. Excess records by Elvis Presley and other artists were consigned to the rubbish bin, where the entrepreneurial Clinton would snatch them up and sell them at school for 12 to 15 cents a pop. But it was Frankie Lymon, soprano lead singer of The Teenagers, and future Motown legend Smokey Robinson who inspired Clinton to dive head-long into the business of music. “I was in the record business in grade school and I started the group around the same time. I started the Parliaments because of Frankie Lymon. He made me want to have a group right away. But what made me really want to go all the way was Smokey Robinson,” Clinton explained. “When Motown popped up, he was doing it for The Miracles and then started working with The Temptations and The Marvelettes. That’s when I realized that you needed to have a lot of [creative] outlets for all the different styles of music you want to do.” The perspective Clinton has gained over a lifetime of making music has particularly resonated for him during major industry events, be it the group’s 1997 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame or receiving that recent Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. “That Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction was a lot of fun. You got to see a lot of people you hadn’t seen in years. We hadn’t seen the Jacksons since they were kids,” he said. “You’re back there reminiscing about 50 years ago. I did it again when we got that Lifetime Achievement Award. Dionne [Warwick] and I were back in East Orange, New Jersey, at the same time when she first started. And we talked about Reverend Warwick and the Drinkard Singers before Cissy Houston and them all. You see and talk about all of that and you see that you survived.”

Love Stories

The Sunriver Music Festival enters its 42nd year, with a focus on the power of love


By Isaac Biehl Courtesy Sunriver Music Festival

Love is in the air this summer during the Sunriver Music Festival.

The 2019 festival is putting together some pretty special performances. You can see Grammy-award-winning flautist Alexander Lipay (who also holds the Guinness World Record for standing ab wheel rolls), Russian-American pianist Olga Kern, who also performed here in 2004, a Latin-inspired pops concert by Octavio Moreno and more. Concertgoers can expect a mixed media experience at the Aug. 17 show, when the orchestra will be joined by Westwater Arts, a company dedicated to bringing beautiful visuals to these


performances such as these. The setup will include a three-panel screen suspended over the orchestra. As the music plays, the screens will be choreographed to move, along with photos from Mexico the company captured during 18 months of traveling. As it’s grown, the festival has been able to offer scholarships and other opportunities for young musicians. SMF awarded more than $38,000 in scholarship dollars this year, almost 100% of which, as Beezley says, came from donations in the community. Many of those

New Gallery Opens in Prineville Rimrock Gallery showcases fine art reflective of the West The doors of a new gallery opened up this past weekend in Prineville, and the community came out to celebrate. Pamela Claflin—who started Bend’s Mockingbird Gallery in 1989 and sold it in 2007—is behind the new venture. Rimrock Gallery is located on the corner of NW 3rd and Deer streets in downtown Prineville. The space is filled with art that truly showcases the beauty of the community it is in.

past scholarship recipients played several weeks back at the Festival Faire, the festival’s premier fundraising night. Others are set to perform at the festival’s Discover the Symphony concert Aug. 20. Beezley says she’s proud of the fact that many scholarship students go on to major in music in college, eventually playing big roles in orchestras around the country. Ben Lulich, the festival’s Principal Clarinet since 2008, was one of those recipients. Lulich grew up in Bend and went on to attend the Cleveland Institute of Music and Yale, performed with the Kansas City Symphony and is now Principal Clarinet at the Seattle Symphony. Lulich will be out of town this year, so acting in his place is Angelique Poteat from Seattle. As an organization dedicated to both showcasing and nurturing the arts, SMF has proved itself piece of long-lasting culture in Central Oregon. The performances that follow? They’re just the icing on the cake, Beezley said. “Music is the reward. There are so many moving parts,” says Beezley as she goes through the process of preparing for the summer festival. “When it’s all pulled together, and you sit down and finally hear the music– it’s like, ‘This is why we do this.’” 

Art pieces, from left, include the sculpture, "Rock Star,” by Stefan Savides; the painting, “Peaceful Afternoon,” by Pamela Claflin; the sculpture, “Hooked,” by George and Mark Lundeen; and the painting, “Calf,” by Robert Moore.

Twenty-one artists are currently represented in the gallery. They come from a variety of places, though a significant number are from Oregon. All of

the artists have over 30 years of experience, and it shows. The work is varied in technique and approach, but all is of an immaculate quality, hanging together

like a perfectly woven story—which truly showcases Claflin’s knowledge of not just art, but also of Prineville. “I like representational art. I feel like Prineville is a no-nonsense community. They are hard working, they are self built and they are wonderful to live with, so I wanted to leave a gift for the people of Prineville,” Claflin says. Claflin lived in Prineville for the first 12 years of her life and is excited to be there again. Art should give voice to a community and help tell its story, even if it’s not solely created by the people who live there. I was so pleased to see a space filled with art that did just that for me. Claflin has created a space that feels like a new opportunity for Prineville to see itself, and that’s quite lovely.  Rimrock Gallery

ince 1978, the Sunriver Music Festival has been bringing an eclectic mix of music to Central Oregon, supplying many talented musicians with a platform to perform. It might seem silly, but the festival was all sparked by Ray Fabrizio—former principal flute player at the festival—telling his wife and friends that there were “pretty good acoustics in here” as they walked through Sunriver’s Great Hall. While the festival has seen much growth and change over the years, the mission has stayed the same: being a two-week-long dedication to music. “One thing we stay true to is, well, we first started in the Great Hall,” says Executive Director Pam Beezley. “We started in 1978 and we’re still there. It’s a beautiful, intimate setting. And the quality of music has maintained over all these years.” Beezley says she’s worked with Sunriver Music Festival for 17 years, seeing it grow in not just size, but purpose, focusing more now on what it can do for the community. She describes the program as having “a lot of good energy,” and is thrilled how the organization has expanded to having events year-round. This year’s theme is “Love Stories – Around the World with Music,” created by conductor and artistic director George Hanson. Beezley says the orchestra will be “weaving the theme of love into every concert” this summer, with the first show inspired by Romeo and Juliet.

Jelly: Not Just for Breakfast Anymore

By Nicole Vulcan

Redmond-based small-batch handmade jelly adds flavor to dishes



elly is Justy Haney’s jam, so to speak. She got hooked on jelly—in particular, a spicy pineapple jalapeno jelly and a pineapple roasted garlic jelly—while working at a restaurant years ago. When the establishment closed, she was determined that the jellies should live on, buying the rights to the recipes from the owners. Haney has been serious about jelly making ever since, founding Justy’s Jelly in 1996. While she’s certainly learned the art (and science) of jelly making and enjoys the process, Haney admits she’s not fond of spending lots of time in the kitchen otherwise. Her overall cooking philosophy is to keep it simple yet flavorful. That’s where her jellies come in, as they’re packed with flavor and can be the focal point of easyto-make dishes. The fact that Justy’s Jellies are handmade in small batches using fresh and often locally-sourced ingredients adds to the flavor punch. On a recent morning in Justy’s Jelly kitchen, a few blocks from downtown Redmond, Haney whipped up a few of her favorite recipes and I got to do that thing that I love to do: EAT! Here’s a sampling of the bites I got to enjoy. Like the headline indicates, jelly is not just for breakfast toast anymore.

A Drive for More Fresh Produce Justy’s Jelly amps up a simple wrap sandwich.

pepper jelly of your choice. Spread into an oven-proof dish and heat at 350 degrees until warmed through or serve at room temperature. Serve with crackers, chips, or sliced vegetables.

Pineapple Habanero Deviled Eggs Hard boil 24 eggs then peel, slice in half and remove yolks Mix yolks with 1/3 cup mayo, 1/3 cup mustard and 1/3 cup Justy’s Pineapple Habanero Jelly Stir in a small pinch of salt Pipe yolk mixture into egg halves and sprinkle with paprika, if desired

Best Grilled Cheese Ever Assemble usual grilled cheese ingredients. Spread a thin layer of your favorite Justy’s Jelly flavor (Pineapple Jalapeno is terrific) on the inside of each bread slice. Add cheese slices. Butter outside of bread slices. Grill in a buttered skillet on low heat until cheese is melted and bread is nicely browned. Another easy sandwich variation is peanut butter and jelly with one of Justy’s pepper jellies (Very Berry Jalapeno works well).

1 tablespoon Justy’s Pineapple Jalapeno Jelly or Pineapple Roasted Garlic Jelly 1/2 ripe avocado 1 teaspoon cucumber, seeded, peeled and sliced 1 green onion, diced 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella 1/4 cup shredded lettuce or greens of choice Several thin slices of baked or roasted turkey 1 teaspoon sunflower seeds, optional Warm tortilla on a hot grill or in microwave for 15 to 20 seconds. Smear cream cheese and jelly on tortilla. Add avocado, cucumber, onion, cheese and lettuce. Lay turkey slices on top and sprinkle with sunflower seeds. Wrap tightly then slice diagonally Other ideas include adding a jar of pepper jelly to a slow cooker full of meatballs or small sausages and serving as hors d’oeuvres; using warmed pepper jelly as a dip for chicken wings; and glazing chicken, pork, lamb, or fish with jelly while grilling. Over the years, Haney has created new flavors, often seasonal in nature, to accompany her original two flavors on local store shelves. Examples include Vanilla Peach, Strawberry Daiquiri, Very Berry Habanero, and Pineapple Pepper. The latest, greatest, yummiest flavors are always available online at and at local grocery stores.  Justy’s Jelly

Have a backyard full of more zucchini than you can possibly handle? Instead of tossing it, a local group is encouraging people to donate it. The High Desert Food & Farm Alliance is looking for donations of produce from local gardeners, farmers and owners of fruit trees. HDFFA’s Grow & Give program allows people with an overabundance of produce to donate it to people in need. HDFFA is also running an on-farm gleaning program, in which volunteers harvest excess produce directly from fruit trees, gardens and farms. The Grow & Give program has already collected more than 6,000 pounds of local produce for the local food bank, NeighborImpact, but has a goal of collecting at least 15,000 pounds for the year. People interested in donating fresh produce can contact info@ or call at 541-390-3572.  

The Podski Gets an Indoor Space

The popular food cart lot on Arizona Avenue, across from The Box Factory in Bend, is opening up a new indoor space over the Aug. 10 weekend. The Podski’s owner, Mikel Lomsky, says the new space will feature a beer and wine bar, a large mural and will be air-conditioned—though large garage doors will also allow the space to be open to the outdoor air. The space also includes two new bathrooms, and what Lomsky calls a “surprise space that will offer something unique.” Expect new food trucks to come to the space as well. The Podski

Sipping a unique mixed-culture beer at The Commons By Heidi Howard By Heidi Howard





Central Oregon’s Premier Juried Fine Art & Craft Show and Sale 120 artists selected from across North America. On the banks of the Deschutes River in the Old Mill District. Bend, Oregon.

Ferme Rouge can be enjoyed on The Commons patio.


n my recent trip to The Commons, I drank Ferme Rouge on tap, from Little Beast Brewing out of Beaverton, Oregon. It was a delight. The Commons (known until earlier this year as Crow’s Feet Commons) is a great place to hang out during any season, and the beer selection is eclectic and high quality, both on tap and in bottles. The location, just down from what locals call The Breezeway, is fantastic for relaxation and people watching. Grab a beer and sit on the back porch during the summer, and you’re sure to see paddle boarders and kayakers on the river and dogs hanging out. You might even catch some of the space’s live music. Little Beast also has a tasting room, called the Beer Garden, in Portland. Head Brewer and co-owner Charles Porter opened the brewery after leaving Logsdon Farmhouse Ales in Washougal, Washington. Having judged beer alongside him, I am in awe of his palate, and his beers prove this point. His passion for mixed-culture beers is very evident. A mixed-culture beer, also called “mixed fermentation,” is brewed with a variety of both wild yeasts, standard brewing yeast and varietals of bacteria along with other unconventional brewing ingredients. A local place doing this is The Ale Apothecary. Ferme Rouge is one of Little Beast’s flagship beers, a mixed-culture farmhouse red ale. On tap, this beer is

lightly carbonated with a light body, offering a higher carbonation and a creamier mouthfeel. The color is a beautiful, rich reddish amber. The aroma is subtle, with hints of maltiness— think biscuits or baking bread, and an underlying tartness. Ferme Rouge is soured, but in a very subtle way. The tartness is balanced well by the biscuit flavors of the malt. The perfect balance brings a complexity to the beer that’s quite enjoyable. As this beer warms, those flavors open up, and the balance remains. Flavors and aromas of dark fruits begin to come forward, with that remaining backdrop of tartness. The malts are richer, slightly sweeter and the tang takes on a brighter note. Ferme Rouge is great on a warm Central Oregon day because of its bright notes and light mouthfeel. I give this beer a solid 5 out of 5 on my drinkability scale. I don’t often give a 5 for sour beers, but the subtleness of this one is sure to make just about any beer drinker happy. With an ABV of 7.5%, it’s a tad higher than most of the 5-rated beers I’ve reviewed. You’ll want to sip slowly on this beer so you can see how it changes as it warms. In addition to The Commons, you can find Ferme Rouge in bottles at places including The Brew Shop above the Platypus Pub, Broken Top Bottle Shop, Newport Avenue Market and other shops that sell selective craft beer in Central Oregon.

Review: Little Beast’s CRAFT Ferme Rouge CH



Great for work.

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic ALADDIN: With Guy Ritchie in the director’s chair, here’s hoping he can add some of that “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” magic to a remake already lacking the brilliance of Robin Williams. Will Smith might be a good choice for the genie, but the special effects look downright ridiculous. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX CRAWL: A house fills with water and alligators while a young woman and her injured father are stuck inside. I’m really excited to see this one as the reviews are mostly positive and it looks like an intense thrill ride from top to bottom. From the director of the terrifying remake of “The Hills Have Eyes.” Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX DARK PHOENIX: Hey, look, another adaptation of the “Dark Phoenix Saga,” a much beloved comic arc from the 1980s. I wonder if they’ll get it right this time? It can’t be worse than “X-Men: The Last Stand,” can it? Oh, sweet summer child. It can always get worse…especially in Hollywood.

a look at the “Magical Mystery Tour” and not only deconstructs songs like “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Penny Lane,” but also delves into the creative process The Beatles went through at the time. I’m guessing drugs were the creative process. Tin Pan Theater.

ECHO IN THE CANYON: Baby Boomers need

movies, too! This documentary focuses on the Laurel Canyon folk music scene of the 1960s that gave birth to bands including The Beach Boys, The Mamas and the Papas and The Byrds. Los Angeles rock documentaries have been on a roll over the last few years with classics such as “Sound City” and “The Defiant Ones,” and this looks like another winner. Tin Pan Theater


GLORIA BELL: Julianne Moore gives one of her finest performances as a woman who finds love at a time where she was searching for anything but something serious. A surprising and heartfelt little movie. Odem Theater Pub

HOBBS & SHAW: Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham

take their characters from the “Fast and the Furious” franchise and spin them into another franchise that will then spin into another franchise until the entire world becomes an excuse for Vin Diesel to live life a quarter mile at a time. Big explosions and even bigger stupidity make this movie a fun headache. See full review on p29. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema.

HOTEL MUMBAI: An intense and nail-biting recreation of the terrorist attack against the Taj hotel in Mumbai. Odem Theater Pub

STUBER: A surprisingly funny and violent time at the movies about the adventures of a cop who just had LASIK eye surgery getting driven around by a mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu who just wants to open an all-female spinning gym. It’s definitely as dumb as it sounds, but still entertaining. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX SWORD OF TRUST: Lynn Shelton, the filmmaker

behind classics like “Your Sister’s Sister” and “Laggies” brings another heartfelt dramedy to the screen featuring the always welcome Marc Maron, Michaela Watkins and Jillian Bell. Check this one out…it creeps up on you. Tin Pan Theater.

TEEN SPIRIT: While the film tells a tale we’ve seen many times before, the central performance from Elle Fanning is astounding in this look at what makes a modern Cinderella story. Surprisingly delightful. Sisters Movie House


the mannered hilarity of a Wes Anderson movie combined with the darkness of “Taxi Driver” and you have something approaching the strangeness of this weirdly unforgettable film. It covers gun culture, toxic masculinity and the plight of the beta male with jaw-dropping ease. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House


following a couple with 200 acres right outside of Los Angeles as they try to create a sustainable farm. It’s a lovely story and manages to have some truly breathtaking nature cinematography—even though the couple managed to annoy me pretty much all the way through. Tin Pan Theater

THE FAREWELL: A bittersweet and lovely dramedy about the lengths we go to for family and the ways different cultures say goodbye. One of the best films of the year so far and destined to go down as the funniest movie about grief ever made. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX. THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO: One of the best films of 2019 so far (and another winner for A24) follows a man who wants to reclaim the Victorian house his grandfather built. A very funny and moving film from astoundingly gifted filmmaker Joe Talbot. Sisters Movie House, Tin Pan Theater

THE LION KING: Look, I’m sure this movie is really

MARY MAGDALENE: A film that portrays Mary

Magdalene as an almost-revolutionary and fiercely dedicated apostle. For those not interested in the story, the film is worth watching just to see the always underrated Rooney Mara as Mary and a deeply committed Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus. Sisters Movie House


you like Tarantino or you don’t, and this big hearted and strange fantasy won’t change your mind. Simultaneously a love letter to 1969 Hollywood and a dirge for the loss of innocence those times stirred in us as a country, “Once Upon a Time” is a glorious cinematic treasure. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema, Odem Theater Pub.

PAVAROTTI: Even if you don’t know opera, you’ve probably heard the name Pavarotti, the most famous tenor of all time. He makes everything sound good. He’s like the Barry White of opera. This is a documentary about his life. I bet he sings in it. Odem Theater Pub SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME: Marvel is fairly

dollars. Plus, this movie is super fun, and Jake G. Is a national treasure. Just sayin. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

unstoppable at this point, so this new entry in the “Spider-Man” franchise could have Peter Parker sitting on camera reading “Twilight” and it would still make a billion

pretty to look at and everything, but if it doesn’t have Jeremy Irons playing Scar, then I’m gonna make a hard pass. I’m sure I’ll see it at some point, but messing with perfection is never a good idea—even if it’s Disney messing with their own perfect ideas. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

TOY STORY 4: If “Toy Story 3” was about the very

human fear of obsolescence, then “Toy Story 4” focuses on the idea of taking chances in life long past the point where we feel like we have nothing left to offer the world. These movies are dark and sad and weird. I hope Disney and Pixar keep making them— forever. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

YESTERDAY: Director Danny Boyle (“Trainspotting”

& “Sunshine”) taking on the concept of a world where no one remembers the Beatles sounds perfect. His films all use music beautifully and his sense of color, light and frame are densely theatrical, so combining his visual style with the Beatles seems like a match made in musical theater heaven. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

WILD ROSE: An unforgettable musical drama

about a Scottish woman attempting to become a country singer in Nashville. From Tom Harper, who directed excellent episodes of “Misfits,” “Peaky Blinders” and “Electric Dreams.” Sisters Movie House

This is awkward. I wasn’t gonna tell you guys how great the new “She-Ra” cartoon is because then you’d know that I watched the new “SheRa” cartoon. But it’s great. Solid world building, compelling characters and a story that keeps me tuning in to each episode. I guess you know me better now. Sorry about that. Now Streaming on Netflix


Slow and the Curious SCREEN The Hobbs & Shaw is like bad pizza By Jared Rasic Photo courtesy of Sony



didn’t expect this movie to be smart, but I’m not sure I expected it to be so stupid, either. As an unabashed fan of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, I’ve been looking forward to “Hobbs & Shaw” all year. Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs has been the best character in the series since his introduction in “Fast Five,” so it makes sense the producers would pull him off the flagship and give him his own franchise. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s far and away the biggest movie star in the series. Teaming Hobbs with Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw (the villain in “Furious 7” and sort of hero in “The Fate of the Furious”) makes sense. The characters hate each other and have fought each other repeatedly throughout the series, adding a bit of an “Odd Couple” vibe to the movies. The problem with that is now “Hobbs & Shaw” is basically two and a half hours of the characters bitching at each other which, even with Johnson and Statham’s grounded chemistry, gets awfully dull and repetitive after a while. They hook up with Shaw’s sister (Vanessa Kirby, who steals the whole movie) to take on Brixton Lore (the wonderful Idris Elba), a rogue MI6 agent who is part cyborg, part super villain and all sass. Lore has a virus called Snowflake that makes you…ohmygod who cares! Do things blow up good? Yes, they do! Does the Rock punch things? All the things! Does Statham kick things? So many things! That’s all you need to know. The film is fast paced and ridiculously entertaining even as it doesn’t quite reach the highs of the other franchise (“Five,” “Six” and “Seven”) it doesn’t come near

You can picture this entire movie just from this one image, can’t you?

the lows, either (I’m looking at you, “2 Fast 2 Furious”). And while Vin Diesel and company aren’t really drowning in an excess of intelligence, “Hobbs & Shaw” makes those movies look downright intellectual by comparison. SPOILERS……………………………………… Guess how Hobbs and Shaw figure out how to defeat Brixton? Teamwork. His robot brain doesn’t let him move quickly enough when multiple attacks come at him at once. A villain self-described as “Black Superman” is taken out when our heroes decide to throw punches…at the same time. It’s “MARTHA!” levels of dumb.

Also, Brixton is working for an unseen villain who, even by the end of the film, remains completely anonymous. I mean, I get that everyone wants this to be another franchise, but at least try to pretend you’re telling a complete story. Romance me into coming to a sequel; don’t just assume I’m coming so I can see how the first movie turns out. “Hobbs & Shaw” is big, fun, dumb and the very definition of a “blockbuster.” If the dumb stuff bugs you too much and outweighs pretty explosions for you, then avoid this like the plague—but if you just want some stupid excitement and

big action sequences then you could do worse. It’s pizza. This movie is pizza. Like, maybe you wanted something gourmet with Greek olives and basil-infused artichoke hearts, but instead you got Pizza Hut with fingerprints on it. It’s not great, certainly not the best, nowhere near the pizza you wanted—but screw it, it’s still pizza and the hunger never goes away.   Hobbs & Shaw

Battle at Bachelor

A premier disc golf competition, set amongst towering trees and mountain views, continues to grow By Damian Fagan

dream to run a disc-golf-themed brewery,” said Valarie. Along with founding partner, Justin Celmer, the trio opened Bevel earlier this year. The brewery is named after the “beveled edge” which transformed the Frisbee into the modern-day golf disc. “That innovation created our sport, and we’re trying to reflect that into craft beer,” said Valarie. The Doss’ have lived in Bend for seven years, though were often gone on the disc golf circuit most of February through October, playing at tournaments internationally and across the country. While traveling, they’d stop in at breweries and try craft beers. “Through our travels around the world, we were able to meet brewers and note every successful brewing idea, which then went into our planning for this business,” said Valarie. On Aug. 10, Bevel will pour beer at the Players’ Party at Kapka Butte Sno-Park. The party will include food vendors, merchandise, field games, a full 18-hole mini disc golf course, raffle and watching coverage of the 2019 PDGA World Championships held in Peoria, Illinois. Meanwhile, over 50 Central Oregon disc golfers, including men and women, professionals and amateurs, will compete in the Battle at Bachelor. One competitor excited about testing his skills is Powell Butte’s Ty Love. Love, 14, recently placed second at the Junior World Championships in Emporia, Kansas, and will compete in the Men’s Advanced Division. “I’ve always really liked one-person sports where you’re your own team,” said Love. “I started watching videos on

YouTube of Avery Jenkins, a 2010 world champion in disc golf, and it just took off from there.” Love’s been playing for three years, competing for two and a half as an amateur—although his dream is to turn pro. “When I was out at Worlds, all these people from Central Oregon were supporting me, so it will be cool playing a tournament with them,” said Love. Love’s dad, Brian, will also compete at Bachelor and credits his son for introducing him to disc golf. The competition happens Saturday and Sunday between 8am and 4pm. The Central Coast Disc Golf media

team will film the final round, airing it on its YouTube channel. “We’d love to see a huge crowd of spectators following the lead card for the final round,” said Beshore.

he discs will be flying during the Battle at Bachelor premier Pro Disc Golf Association event of Central Oregon Aug. 10 and 11. Hosted by the Central Oregon Disc Golf Club, at least 163 participants are registered to compete against elevation, tight fairways and towering trees as they play a specially created 18-hole course that winds through Mt. Bachelor’s Nordic Trail system. “In 2017 we had 43 participants, and 110 last year,” said Tournament Director Mike Beshore. “We’ve grown in participation and purse every year, so we’re pretty excited about that.” Several Pacific Northwest touring professionals and over 100 top-rated amateurs will compete for this year’s combined purse of over $7,000. “It’s a pretty long course with a lot of elevation change,” said Beshore. “The course will be set up on the Wednesday before the tournament begins so participants can practice and get to know what to expect along the course and pack their bag accordingly.” Because of the long distances on holes between tee pad to basket, distance drivers will be key to keeping players in the fairways and out of the woods. In addition to the growth in event participation, Bevel Craft Brewing signed on as the 2019 title sponsor. Owners Valarie (Jenkins) and Nate Doss toured as professional disc golfers for 13 years, before turning their passions to crafting hop-forward IPAs. Valarie is a four-time PDGA World Champion and Nate a three-time PDGA World Champion. “We’ve put our professional disc golf careers on hold while we pursue our

he dream property is in escrow, the home inspection contingency has been removed and it looks like it's smooth sailing to close the transaction. What could go wrong? Is there anything that can delay closing and moving dates? It was late May 2017 and I was working on the listing side of a transaction that was set to close in three days. It seemed like everything was going smoothly and on time. Then a freak spring storm graced Bend with howling winds and a torrential downpour of rain. Thirty minutes after the storm hit, I got the call—the call no real estate broker, or anyone else, for that matter, wants to receive from the Bend Police Department. An officer told me a tree had fallen onto the roof on what appeared to be a property I had for sale. My stomach took an immediate freefall dive to my toes. As I drove up the street to the house, there it was; a 100foot Colorado blue spruce with a 9-footwide root ball freed from the ground, the tree lying on the house. The tree had punctured the roof and eaves on the southeastern corner of the roof. Its precarious position was all that stood between it and the neighboring home. I tell this story as a precautionary tale to be prepared that not all escrows will close on time. This is an extreme and colorful example. That said, it was a situation that was out of anyone's control and resulted in the delay of close. Thankfully, the sellers and I were able to work swiftly to remedy the situation and the buyer hung in

there to close a week and a half later. There are several things that can delay a closing. More often than not, they’re out of the buyer’s and seller’s control. Appraisal-related delays are one of the most common reasons a closing date gets delayed. If an appraisal comes back late, or outlines conditions that must be met in order for the property to meet lender requirements before a loan application can go to final underwriting, it can cause delays. Also causing delays are vendors not completing repairs within the time frame necessary to close. Sometimes there are repairs negotiated between buyer and seller to be completed before close of escrow, including plumbing, roofing or electrical repairs. As many of us have experienced in recent years, vendors are booked out and oftentimes cannot meet the time constraints of a pending sale. As a result, the escrow closing may be delayed in order to get the necessary repairs completed. A lender’s underwriter may also require additional documentation or verifications of employment prior to close of escrow. The inability to obtain these documents in a timely manner could delay final loan approval and the close of escrow. Buying and selling a property is an exciting and stressful process, so it’s best to be prepared for anything. From my experience in this industry, and as my experience with the fallen tree demonstrates, I’ve learned that anything truly can happen.

AUGUST 23rd & 24th










SCIENCE ADVICE GODDESS TheTwoFeud Pyramid weeks ago, I finally dumped

my totally abusive jerk of a boyfriend. I do miss him, but I know I made the right decision. I came to see that he was cruel, manipulative, sociopathic, and toxic. However, I stupidly went on Facebook and saw that he already has a new girlfriend! I’m so pissed that I was replaced so quickly. I do not want him back, but I do want to make him suffer, basically to get revenge for all he put me through. My friend keeps telling me revenge is unhealthy and toxic and forgiveness is good for you and I need to forgive him. Is she right? —Burned Revenge looks so Clint Eastwood-cool in the movies—less so when you get arrested for keying “micropenis!!!” into your ex’s car, right under a street cam. The desire for revenge is basically the urge to punish people who’ve harmed us or those close to us. It’s widely believed to be a poisonous and maladaptive feeling that leads to poisonous and maladaptive behavior—like forays into the dark web to seek out a highly recommended but affordably priced assassin. In fact, evolutionary psychologist Michael McCullough explains in “Beyond Revenge” that the revenge motive seems to be “a built-in feature of human nature,” a sort of psychological police force guarding our interests. It was likely vital to the evolution of human cooperation, which in turn led to essential human innovations such as flush toilets, open-heart surgery, and the Dorito. Research that McCullough cites suggests the revenge motive has three functions: Deterring aspiring aggressors, deterring repeat aggressors, and punishing (and reforming) freeloading moochbags. The thing is, revenge has a companion motivation, forgiveness, which McCullough describes as “an internal process of getting over your ill will for an offender.” Interestingly, whether we forgive appears to be context-sensitive, meaning it usually isn’t the particular crime so much as the particular criminal that matters. McCullough notes that the forgiveness motivation seems to switch on when there’s a valuable relationship at stake—a continuing relationship between the harmer and harm-ee. In your situation, however, there’s no ongoing relationship to motivate you to forgive the guy. And though forgiveness

is correlated with mental health and even physical well-being, the assumption that forgiveness is always the best course of action is a little under-nuanced. For example, McCullough writes that people with strong social support networks that encourage hostile responses to offenders can end up feeling “justified, comforted, and satisfied (by) their unforgiving stance” and “may not experience any negative emotional or physical consequences.” On the other hand, he notes that “people who feel coerced to ‘forgive and forget’ may find their post-offence distress exacerbated.” To decide what’s Amy Alkon best for you, consider the reason you give for wanting revenge: because your ex was on to the next woman pronto after you dumped him. Also consider that you now identify him as a pretty terrible person and partner. Of course, the reality is, we all want to be wanted, sometimes even by people we really don’t have any business wanting. But ask yourself something: In light of the sort of person you now see him to be, is it surprising in the least that he immediately latched onto his next victim? Next, look at your life and calculate how much time and energy you’re investing in thinking dark and nasty thoughts about him. Is keeping the hate fires burning for him benefiting you? Does it feel energizing (that is, rewarding), or does it feel a bit poisonous, psychologically and maybe even physically? Sure, it’s understandable that you’d long to do something—take some action, even the score—in response to feeling angry. However, if the reason for your anger is ultimately that you didn’t look too closely at whom you were getting together with, maybe what’s most productive for you now is deciding to let go of the past and working on being better at boyfriend vetting in the future. This starts with reviewing your last relationship from start to finish. Be intensely honest with yourself about all you overlooked about the guy and how you got used to his escalating levels of abuse as your continual “new normal.” By focusing on your part in this and how selective you need to be, you can shift into a sense of satisfaction that things will be different for you in the future. You should find this a welcome replacement for the head versus heart loop you’ve probably been stuck in: Your head says, “Move on.” Your heart says, “Sure thing—behind the wheel of heavy machinery when he has nowhere to go but el squasho!”

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Let’s enjoy a moment of poignant silence in honor of your expired illusions. They were soulful mirages: full of misplaced idealism and sweet ignorance and innocent misunderstandings. Generous in ways you may not yet realize, they exuded an agitated beauty that aroused both courage and resourcefulness. Now, as those illusions dissolve, they will begin to serve you anew, turning into fertile compost for your next big production. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Old rules and traditions about how best to conduct intimate relationship are breaking down. New rules are still incubating. Right now, the details about how people express their needs to give and receive love seem to be riddles for which there are no correct answers. So what do you do? How do you proceed with the necessary blend of confidence and receptivity? Can you figure out flexible strategies for being true both to your need for independence and your need for interdependence? I bring these ruminations to your attention, Libra, just in time for the “Transforming Togetherness” phase of your cycle. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It’s time for your once-a-year shout-out to your most audacious possibilities. Ready? Go ahead and say, “Hallelujah! Hosanna! Happiness! Hooray for my brilliant future!” Next, go ahead and say, “I have more than enough power to create my world in the image of my wisest dreams.” Now do a dance of triumph and whisper to yourself, “I’m going to make very sure I always know exactly what my wisest dreams are.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): During the next three weeks, I advise you to load up on copious amounts of caffeine from Monday at 8 a.m. until Friday at 6 p.m. Then drastically cut back on the coffee and consume large amounts of alcohol and/or marijuana from 6:01 p.m. on Friday through 6 p.m. on Sunday. This is the ideal recipe for success. JUST KIDDING! I lied. Here’s the truth, Sagittarius: Astrological indicators suggest you would benefit from making the coming weeks be the most undrugged, alcohol-free time ever. Your potential for achieving natural highs will be extraordinary, as will your potential to generate crucial breakthroughs while enjoying those natural highs. Take advantage!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I don’t presume you should or will gleefully embrace the assignment I’ll propose. The task may indeed be too daunting for you to manage right now. If that’s the case, don’t worry. You’ll get another chance in a few months. But if you are indeed ready for a breathtaking challenge, here it is: Be a benevolent force of wild nature; be a tender dispenser of creative destruction; be a bold servant of your soulful dreams—as you demolish outmoded beliefs and structures that have been keeping a crucial part of your vitality shackled and latent. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I have cast a feisty love spell that will be triggered in anyone who reads the first line of this horoscope. And since you have done that, you are now becoming even smarter than you already were about getting the most out of your intimate alliances. You’re primed to experiment with the delights of feeling with your head and thinking with your heart. Soon you’ll be visited

by revelations about any unconscious glitches that might be subtly undermining your togetherness, and you’ll get good ideas about how to correct those glitches. Astrological rhythms will be flowing in your relationships’ favor for the next seven weeks!

“ A d u lt s h av in g s e r io u s fu n !”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I estimate that about 25 percent of your fear results from your hesitation to love as deeply and openly and bravely as you could. Another 13 percent originates in an inclination to mistake some of your teachers for adversaries, and 21 percent from your reluctance to negotiate with the misunderstood monsters in your closet. But I suspect that fully 37 percent of your fear comes from the free-floating angst that you telepathically absorb from the other 7.69 billion humans on our planet. So what about the remaining four percent? Is that based on real risks and worth paying attention to? Yes! And the coming weeks will be an excellent time to make progress in diminishing its hold on you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): When it came time to write your horoscope, I was feeling unusually lazy. I could barely summon enough energy to draw up the planetary charts. I said a weak prayer to the astrological muses, pleading, “Please don’t make me work too hard to discover the message that Aries people need to hear; just make the message appear in my mind.” As if in response, a voice in my head said, “Try bibliomancy.” So I strolled to my bookcase, shut my eyes, pulled out the first book I felt, and went to a random page. Here’s what I saw when I opened my eyes: “The Taoist concept of wu-wei is the notion that our creative active forces are dependent on and nourished by inactivity; and that doing absolutely nothing may be a good way to get something done.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There’s an old Rosicrucian vow you might have fun trying out: “I pledge to interpret every experience that comes my way as a communication of God with my soul.” If you carry out this intention with relaxed playfulness, every bird song you hear is an emblem of Divine thought; every eavesdropped conversation provides hints of the Creator’s current mood; the shape that spilled milk takes on your tabletop is an intimation of eternity breaking into our timegripped realm. In my years of offering you advice, I have never before suggested you try this exercise because I didn’t think you were receptive. But I do now. (If you’re an atheist, you can replace “God,” “Divine,” and “Creator” with “Life.”) GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Below are unheralded gifts possessed by many Geminis but not commonly identified by traditional astrologers: 1. a skill for deprogramming yourself: for unlearning defunct teachings that might otherwise interfere with your ability to develop your highest potentials; 2. a sixth sense about recognizing artificial motivations, then shedding them; 3. a tendency to attract epiphanies that show you why and how to break taboos that may once have been necessary but aren’t any longer; 4. an ability to avoid becoming overwhelmed and controlled by situations you manage or supervise. CANCER (June 21-July 22): In 1993, I began writing a book titled The Televisionary Oracle. By 1995, I had generated over 2,000 pages of material that I didn’t like. Although I was driven by a yearning to express insights that had been welling up in me for a long time, nothing about the work felt right. I was stuck. But finally I discovered an approach that broke me free: I started to articulate difficult truths about aspects of my life about which I was embarrassed, puzzled, and ashamed. Then everything fell into place. The process that had been agonizing and fruitless became fluidic and joyful. I recommend that you try this strategy to dissolve any mental blocks you may be suffering from: dive into and explore what makes you feel ashamed, puzzling, or embarrassed. I bet it will lead to triumph and fulfillment, as happened for me.

Homework: Make a playful effort to change something you’ve always assumed you could never change.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I am overjoyed that you’re not competing for easy rewards or comparing yourself to the mediocre crowd. Some people in your sphere may not be overjoyed, though. To those whose sense of self isn’t strong, you may be like an itchy allergen; they may accuse you of showing off or acting puffed up. But freaks like me appreciate creative egotists like you when you treat your personality as a work of art. In my view, you’re a stirring example of how to be true to one’s smartest passions. Keep up the good work! Continue to have too much fun! I’m guessing that for now you can get away with doing just about anything you want as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone.

Cannabis increasingly scapegoated over water usage By Jeremy Dickman


et’s talk about water. One of the most common complaints from appellants who object to new marijuana production facilities in the outlying areas of town is water usage. Everyone from laypeople armed with anecdotes, to attorneys presenting statistics regarding well depths, have confronted local government in righteous, “environmentally conscious” indignation over the amount of precious water consumed by the evil ganja grown in their midst. Marijuana and hemp industry supporters have defended against such attacks by insisting that it requires far less water than, say, alfalfa, corn or other crops. The truth is, accurate figures are hard to find, thanks largely to a century of prohibition that rendered any real studies of the agricultural commodity verboten. Finding reliable references to water-need comparisons between cannabis and other crops is not always easy, and frequently supported by little more than oral legend. Some local growers have indicated they use between 1,500 and 3,000 gallons of water per day during their grow season. Others use different watering methods, and insist they can use less, in addition to recycling water. While appellants concerned about the deepening of wells in rural Central Oregon may have a point that water is becoming increasingly scarce (several wells in Alfalfa have had to be deepened over the past several years, coinciding with the onset of marijuana legalization), this is a classic case of correlation not equaling causation. A U.S. Geological Survey study found that water levels declined 14 feet from the mid-90s to the mid-2000s, years before recreational cannabis was legalized in Oregon. It’s also news to no one that Central Oregon (like much of the state) has been mired in a drought since 2000. Deschutes County’s human population has more than doubled in the past 30 years, and much of that growth has spread to Alfalfa and other outlying areas. The dearth of reliable statistics about cannabis water usage doesn’t mean we have no data at all. According to a study examining cannabis and alfalfa farming in Northern California, the latter requires more than 5 acre-feet of water, the former just 1. In short? Alfalfa’s crop namesake may be the biggest culprit in drying the wells.

Reliable statistics about cannabis water usage in Oregon will likely become more prevalent in the coming decades. Marijuana producers are required to estimate their future monthly water consumption when they submit an application to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, and also provide a “will-serve” letter to Deschutes County from one of the local irrigation districts, or a water-hauling company. The county requires that these letters indicate an acknowledgment from the water source that the water is specifically for cannabis, something not required of alfalfa or lavender or wheat farmers. This often created problems for marijuana entrepreneurs. Some irrigation districts had been reluctant to grant “will serve” letters that specify they are providing the water for the purposes of marijuana growth. The reason? The irrigation water is frequently sourced by federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Energy, which operates the Bonneville Power Administration along the Columbia River. In addition to estimating their water consumption, marijuana producers must provide a water-right certificate for the property on which they grow, or some other evidence that the water right is not needed (a requirement for all farms). Water rights are famously difficult to obtain, however, and new water rights are rarely issued and therefore must be acquired some other way. Some areas may qualify for exemptions, but cannabis (including hemp) crops are not eligible for water-right exemptions. Perhaps the most telling statistic that should assuage the water-conscious anti-cannabis folks in this area is that marijuana farms are simply not big enough to put a dent in our wells. The maximum mature canopy allowed by the OLCC for a single applicant is about 40,000 square feet, or 1 acre. Most producers farm significantly less than 1 acre, particularly in Deschutes County. Statewide, the OLCC has only approved about 1,200 producer licenses. Compare that to almost 12,000 acres of alfalfa harvested in Deschutes County during the 2015-16 growing season, and the math reflects that alfalfa sucks up at least 10 times the water that marijuana does. So it begs the question: Are we making too much hay over a small issue?
