Some of you might have heard of the term “solutions journalism.” The Ground Truth Project, which has a mission of serving “under-covered corners” of the U.S., defines solutions journalism as “focusing on what works, and how it’s done.” Other definitions of solutions journalism include shining a light on the ideas and actions intended to prevent a tragedy or other unpleasant thing from happening again. Traditional approaches have focused on looking at a problem and its potential solutions from a third-party perspective. With this week’s cover story and its accompanying events, we want to go further. We aim not just to look at a problem, but also to be actively involved in the solution. As you’ll read on page 8, our 2019 Woman of the Year shares about encountering a community problem. Together, we’re working to alleviate it. It’s a more active definition of what solutions journalism can be, and what roles media outlets can and should fill in a community. Telling people’s stories is powerful; taking action to let people tell their own stories and to change a community’s perspective—is, in my mind, even more powerful.

or the past several years, officials from the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests have been engaged in a process aimed at managing overuse in the Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Washington, and Three Sisters wilderness areas. We’ve known since last year that a day-use permit system, with a cap in the number of users per day, was coming for 19 of the wilderness areas’ most popular trails, such as Green Lakes, South Sister and Broken Top. We’ve also known that 79 trailheads would soon fall under a similar, limited-entry permit system for overnight trips. Until this week, however, the public didn’t yet know how much those permits would cost. Some argued that charging nearly any amount would be a barrier for low-income individuals wanting to access some of the area’s most popular trails. Others complained that this was an example of government overreach—impacts of overuse be damned. This week, forest supervisors announced the prices: Free day-use permits for those 19 popular trails, and $6 for overnight permits at 79 trailheads (plus a $1 processing fee for any type of permit bought at Reservation.gov—though that processing fee doesn’t go back to the forests). This is a good compromise—at least for now—and yet it comes with an asterisk. The zero-cost (minus processing fee) option for day-use permits alleviates the concern by some that a new permit system would pose as a barrier for the financially challenged. It also stands to placate those who complain about “government overreach”— often a catchphrase that, at its core,

may often mean, “we don’t want to pay to use public lands.” The $6 overnight permit fee is reasonable for those recreationalists invested enough to be spending nights in the wilderness—especially when you consider that the permit fees are intended to be re-invested in the wilderness areas for the purposes of “wilderness stewardship projects, visitor education and outreach, trail work and resource monitoring,” as mentioned on the Central Cascades Wilderness Strategies Project web page. But that’s where the asterisk comes in. We’d hope that at least part of the fees collected would be utilized for enforcement of the permit system—otherwise, what’s the point? If bad actors become aware that there are no consequences to bucking the permit requirements, the efforts of the past several years would be something of a waste. Wilderness areas would continue to see the impacts of overuse, including the construction of structures, damaged trees, accumulation of garbage and unburied human waste. People would continue to risk their lives parking along the Cascade Lakes Highway. The new permit system goes into effect in May, and it won’t be until the busy days of summer arrive that we will begin to see whether the dollars gleaned from overnight permit fees—as well as the goodwill of people who believe in the rule of law—is enough to truly stem the tide of overuse at these trails. And for those still worried that this is a case of government overreach, you have until April 30 to enjoy the Green Lakes trail, permit free.

POST-IMPEACHMENT THOUGHTS

GUEST OPINION Kudos to Tim Neville for bold, innovative thinking on solutions to congestion on the Cascades Lakes Highway (“On Powder and Polka,” 1/23). And to Terry Brabow for pointing out that the results sought from massive investments in infrastructure can many times be achieved through changes in policies instead (Letters, 2/6). Tim’s key observation on urban transportation has echoes across all cities in North America and, indeed, around the world. One that is highly relevant to Bend as we update our Transportation System Plan and vote on investments of an unprecedented scale. “The answer isn’t to pave more…. but to change the way we think about moving from A to B.” In the work to update the TSP, two findings stand out. First, no city in the world has been able to out-build the growth of its traffic and, second, making it easier to travel by car encourages exactly that habit. It’s a zero-sum game. The need to “change the way we think” about urban mobility is now recognized by transportation professionals, urban planners and city leaders everywhere, resulting in bold decisions to invest in convenient, appealing and affordable mobility options that reduce reliance on the car. Traditional programs that relied on “paving more” to ease congestion have failed. Everywhere, they simply provided temporary relief. Congestion quickly returns, road dangers increase, air and noise pollution worsen—and the cycle of ever-increasing taxes to maintain an expanding road network rolls on. The city as proverbial frog in a pot of slowly boiling water. Today, we’re experiencing a revolution in transportation and cities the

@sourceweekly

world over are facing into the reality that an urban car-centric model is not sustainable, not affordable and not desirable. Priority in investments is in finding a new model for urban mobility instead of trying to “out-build” traffic snarls. This new model combines new modes of mass transit with policies to encourage trip consolidation, ride sharing, personal mobility devices and prioritizes community safety. One that broadens access to transit, lessens air and noise pollution, reduces the impact on the environment and shifts investments to reflect community wide mobility needs and not the car. This is the “change in thinking” that has changed investments in transportation systems elsewhere. The balance of investments proposed for Bend is traditional. Twice as much funding to make it easier to travel by car as in all the other funding put together. Other cities see a new model for urban mobility as central to investments in their transportation system and for the livability of their city. So, when you’re crawling on Highway 97, stuck at a railroad crossing, circling Wall Street endlessly for a parking space or trying to even reach Cascades Lakes Highway on a powder day, remember “On Powder and Polka” and ask yourself whether we need to “change the way we think about moving from A to B” and direct our investments accordingly. Or, prepare to join the other frogs in that slowly boiling, and very expensive, pot of water. — Gavin Leslie Bend resident.

ON POWDER AND POLKA: MORE PRESCIENT THAN IT SEEMS

What the American public is witnessing now is how fascism takes over a country. It has been building since Reagan’s tenure; then picked up speed with the Bush administrations. Trump is only the latest iteration and he would not have the power he has without the solid support of his enablers—the Republican Party leadership and their financial backers who believe they can keep him in check. Yes, he and his cohorts will eventually implode, but unless there is strong resistance to his policies our country may have to face some extremely difficult and painful times before things get better. Many Germans thought they were free and life was better under Hitler’s rule as long as they were able to turn a blind eye to the atrocities he and his minions committed. Then, when his empire collapsed, people claimed they didn’t know any of the crimes had happened. For those of us who lived during WWII and its aftermath, we are very concerned for our country. And few are listening. —Robert Marvos

The City of Bend plans to remove the people who live on Juniper Ridge, but where will they go? By Laurel Brauns

E

viction is sometimes caricatured as a cruel act by fat-cat landlords, pushing low-income families out into the bitter cold in the dead of winter. But what happens when the landlord is the public itself, in the form of the City of Bend, and the people being forced out already live outside? During the Feb. 5 Bend City Council meeting, the City’s attorneys presented a draft of the policy they wrote to remove the people living in 50 or so camps scattered throughout Juniper Ridge on the northeast side of Bend. The City is building Phase Two of the North Interceptor Sewer Line Project that will eventually connect a sewer pipe from O. B. Riley Road from the west to the Bend Water Reclamation Facility to the east. The City wants to start constructing the part that runs through Juniper Ridge in April, and City leaders say, for safety reasons, the people living near the planned construction need to move. The City Council tasked City attorneys with creating a “humane” policy, due to, according to the draft policy documents, the “social nature of this complex transition.” The draft states that police will give the people at Juniper Ridge 60-day, 30-day and 24-hour notices to vacate the property before forcibly removing them. The policy also states the City will “allow outreach workers to visit the camping site where a notice has been posted to assess the need for social service assistance in arranging shelter and other assistance.” While the policy applies to all 1,500 acres of the City-owned land, Assistant

City Attorney Ian Leitheiser said he was not able to provide a clear answer as to whether this means the City will just enforce the removal near the construction area, (and allow people to simply relocate farther north onto the additional 1,000 acres of Juniper Ridge) or if this means they’ll be forced off the entire property. “Managing a property as vast as Juniper Ridge is time- and labor-intensive, and we always need to make choices about how and where to apply finite resources,” Leitheiser told the Source in an email. “…While I’m not the operations person, I anticipate the focus of the efforts this spring will be on the construction zone (the 500 acres).” The City of Bend bought Juniper Ridge in 1990 from Deschutes County for $1. During the height of economic expansion just before the Great Recession, City leaders were drunk on possibility: They spent millions on plans to build a university, a business park and neighborhoods surrounded by parks and trails. These dreams turned into a nightmare as the city lost those millions in a botched land deal and the housing market simultaneously collapsed. Real estate and stock investors were not the only ones to lose their shirt during the Great Recession. Hundreds of people in Bend lost their jobs, forfeited their homes and left town in the middle of the night. Some ended up in Bend’s 21st century Hoovervilles: They set up makeshift camping communities at Juniper Ridge, off China Hat Road and on Central Oregon Irrigation

District land on the outskirts of Redmond, among other public lands. Now, as the City of Bend moves forward with plans of displacing upward of 50 established camps to make way for a yet-to-be-determined development, the conversation around where the people without homes will go is ramping up. One option is to support them in relocating farther north, setting up a city-supported established camp. It’s a plan endorsed by Bend City Councilor Barb Campbell as well as the Central Oregon Homeless Leadership Coalition. “I will propose that we provide dumpsters, port-a-potties and a contained cooking area so that people can make a hot meal without the danger of starting fires,” Campbell said. It’s an idea Campbell has been pushing for years and that other city leaders, including Mayor Sally Russell, once championed. Without some kind of City support, there is truly nowhere for the people at Juniper Ridge to go, Campbell said. Local services are maxed out. As part of the removal policy, the City will give people at Juniper Ridge a photocopied piece of paper with the phone numbers of local homeless shelters. The Homeless Leadership Coalition sent a letter to the City of Bend on Friday opposing the eviction. It refers to

the list of social services the city has prepared: “To the best of the HLC’s knowledge, the resources have not been notified and community resources have not been verified… The shelters in Central Oregon are frequently at capacity. The regional warming shelters are scheduled to close on March 15, 2020… The HLC opposes the posting of eviction notices until adequate low-barrier housing or shelter has been made available to all those living at Juniper Ridge.” The letter proposes two temporary solutions for Juniper Ridge and asks the City for funding. One proposed solution is a mobile service center that would be available for people at Juniper Ridge on a weekly basis to provide food, a warm place to gather and social service workers to help people find future housing and apply for food and health care benefits (costing approximately $8,100 per year). The other proposed solution is a more permanent campground at Juniper Ridge with camp hosts and other facilities (costing approximately $220,000 per year). “If people are being told to leave without anywhere to go, there needs to be a bigger conversation,” said Colleen Thomas, co-chair of the HLC. “Who are we to say what a home is? We need to include those who are experiencing homelessness in this conversation as well.”

Proposed changes to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act sparks concern amongst local parents 7

By Cayla Clark are concerned that the administration will continue negating pieces of the act bit by bit, until students are left with naught but french fries, donuts and highly processed chicken nuggets. Yet Garra Schluter, supervisor of Nutrition Services for Bend-La Pine Schools, confirmed that proposed changes wouldn’t affect their current nutritional guidelines. “Our goal will stay the same,” she said. “We were implementing the same guidelines even before the Healthy, Hungry-Free Kids Act, and our focus on providing students with nutritious meals won’t change.” Bend-La Pine Schools currently offers a variety of healthy options, including gluten-free and vegetarian options and a variety of meals made in-house, from scratch, from locally sourced ingredients. This month’s Marshall High School menu lists a plethora of healthy options, including a daily offering of hummus and vegetables, teriyaki chicken and brown rice, house-made turkey noodle soup and herbed quinoa with chickpeas. While loosening restrictions could lead to an increase in cheaper, less-nutritious foods, BLPS will stay focused on offering healthier options. “I know that some existing requirements are going to be negated, like the incorporation of different colored vegetables in school meals,” Schluter commented. “But this doesn’t mean we’re going to pull these vegetables. Our focus has always been providing students with fresh, healthy food.” Local nutrition therapist and mother Larissa Spafford wants local schools to go further. She regularly donates to the National Farm to School Network, which brings fresh, healthy food into schools,

and the District of Columbia), arguing that changing the law will negatively impact those who rely on school meals as their main source of nutrition. Deanna Dewitt, nutritionist and owner of Elevated Wellness and Yoga, believes that early education makes a difference. She recently developed a program that brings healthy meals and snacks into Westside Shorty’s, a local preschool. “As obesity and childhood diabetes continue to rise, there is a bigger focus on marketing ‘healthier’ options for kids,” she said. “I’ve seen more interest among schools, although we have a long way to go with public school system meals and healthy foods.” She noted that she’d seen some progress firsthand when it came to early childhood development. “I’ve partnered with a local preschool and created an organic, nutrient-dense, whole-foods meal plan for them that includes healthy breakfast, lunch and snack options. The program was rolled out eight months ago, and within the first month teachers and the director mentioned that kids had more balanced energy levels and seemed more attentive during focused activity.” Dewitt’s goal is to open up the program to more local daycares and preschools in the coming months. “Many schools are still serving frozen chicken nuggets, highly processed foods and a high amount of sugary snacks.”

while teaching kids about sustainability and health through farming and gardening. “I’ve noticed that over the past few years, things have gotten a little bit better,” Spafford said. “Schools are slowly moving in the right direction. But we definitely have a lot of work to do. Up until recently, Summit [High School] students could get fast food for lunch. The fact that they can still get sugary cereals and pastries for breakfast is pretty sad. There’s definitely room for improvement.” She noted that a lot of major issues aren’t being adequately addressed, like the use of poor quality, heavily-refined oils. “Nutrition in schools is so important, because kids are still developing. It’s important that we teach them how to be healthy humans.” The former First Lady’s act did more than improve the nutrition profile of school meals; it also helped low-income students access healthy food. “The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act was a game-changing way of providing low-income students with healthy meals— by relaxing these rules, the Trump administration is exacerbating a system where only those who can afford to eat healthy will be able to do so,” wrote Gaby Delle Val of Vox.com when, in 2018, the USDA began relaxing rules.

he Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, a federal statute spearheaded by Michelle Obama and signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2010, set new standards for school meals, ensuring that kids in grades K-12 ate nutritionally-focused food. Changes in menu items included more fruits and vegetables, fat-free milk and whole grains. In 2013, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the impact of the act, citing a Harvard University study that concluded kids were eating 16% more vegetables and 23% more fruit at lunchtime. Another study by the Harvard School of Public Health showed that the new standards didn’t contribute to increased food waste. More recently, however, the USDA denounced these claims and suggested a new proposed rule and a drastic change to the current nutrition standards. In a 2017 statement to The New York Times, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Purdue argued that the amount of reported waste was growing, and that the new health-conscious meals were “unappetizing” to students. The Trump administration made the first major change in 2018, when the USDA implemented a new rule allowing schools to abandon sodium restrictions and forgo the incorporation of whole grains. Last month, the USDA introduced a proposed new rule that would allow the amount of fruit served to be reduced, and the calories the fruits represented to be replaced with granola bars and pastries. Fried potatoes would be considered a vegetable; fast food would find its way back onto school lunch menus. Some local parents and nutritionists

A series of forums, aimed at creating an open door to get to know people of color in our community By Nicole Vulcan

In Central Oregon, conversations around race often start with the phrase,“Bend is so white.” While Census figures show that the region is majority-white, thousands of people of color live, work and play here, too.

In the first of several open forums sponsored by the Source Weekly and led by the Source’s 2019 Woman of the Year, locals share their experiences as people of color in the region. You're invited to attend to hear from community members and to ask meaningful questions, and to leave with resources that can further their own growth and understanding. Stay tuned for other forums to follow!

The Story Behind the Series

L

ast year, the Source Weekly named Erika McCalpine our 2019 Woman of the Year. After featuring her story in the spring, the relationship continued throughout the year, including conceiving and creating this series, together with a group of other members of the Central Oregon community. McCalpine describes herself as a mother, educator and a black woman. Her goals in Bend include being a great educator, but also having an impact on the community in a positive and loving way—and not, in her words, to “shake a finger at people and tell them they’re wrong and they need to do this or that… but to have a dialogue and conversation and to come to a place of enlightenment together.” To give readers a better sense of what we aim to achieve in this and the other upcoming Love Your Neighbor forums, I recorded this recent conversation with McCalpine. Source Weekly: Let’s talk about where the idea for this series came from.

EM: It means a lot. It’s putting myself and the people that are participating on the panel… we are opening ourselves up in a way that makes us vulnerable in our community—but I do believe Our Woman of the Year cover from Feb. 28, 2019. that it’s a necessary vulnerability, because many micro-aggressions and things that people do come from a lack of knowledge. So perhaps being in an environment where it’s safe to ask questions of people from your community can help open the eyes of people that we’re just people, too. We just want to live and thrive in this community just like everyone else. In terms of what it means for my family—you know, it just creates more acceptance. I have a son that’s a freshman at Summit (High School) and a daughter who goes to OSU-Cascades, and I want them to continue to feel welcomed and accepted for who they are in this community.

"Perhaps being in an environment where it’s safe to ask questions of people from your community can help open the eyes of people that we’re just people, too."—Erika McCalpine

Erika McCalpine: I noticed in attending several events about race around town, where national speakers or activists have come to Bend and have given a talk, that many citizens of Bend—or people in the Central Oregon community—would always ask the question, “What could I do?” or “How can I get involved?” or “I don’t know anyone of color in the community.” So I wanted to create a forum where people of color in this community,

know what they can do and how they can get involved. SW: This has been a genesis over the past year, since you were named 2019 Woman of the Year. What does doing something like this mean to you and to your family?

SW: What do you hope people get out of this series of forums?

EM: I want people to walk away with a better sense of understanding. In our society now, we hear a lot of messages centering around fear—fearing people that are different or fear mongering even—to create negative messages about certain groups of people. I just want people to see that every person from a group is not the way movies portray a group of people. I want people to walk away knowing that it’s OK to get people to know people in your community that aren’t like you.

Marcus Legrand Legrand describes himself as a father, husband, educator and activist who appreciates the humanity in people. Describe your interpretation of “code-switching." Code-switching and stating your credentials go hand in hand with me, because in most professional and social situations you go in with a preconceived notion. I have to sound credible, intelligent, and most of all I have to show receipts in order to even get a seat at the table. Next, at times you do a ton of self-talk, pick your words carefully, not partake in any beverages, etc... because you cannot slip up and mess up your chances to get a job, a promotion, or just be included or asked to do things. Next, once people hear that you went to a specific or well-known university or worked for a Fortune 500 company or school district, they have a tendency to ease or relax their posture. The only thing that really irritates us when it comes to code-switching is when someone of the dominant culture jumps in and tries to tell our truth or tries to lead the discussion on our behalf. Finally, code-switching happens inner-racially as well; we have a tendency to ever switch based on where we are visiting (relatives, unsafe neighborhoods, regional locations) so we make sure we are OK.

get a lot of stares depending on how I dress. I’m halo halo, mix-mix. Medium brown. I can blend in if I need to. Wear my Patagonia jacket and pull my hair back into a top bun, and pretend that I fit in. And it’s a privilege to be able to alter some things about myself and pass as belonging to the predominant culture. But I usually don’t. I’m practicing standing in my truth and feeling OK to stand out. I rock my style and the stares are endless. I smile and wave and sometimes I cry, depending on the day, the stare, and if I get a smile or wave in return. It can be exhausting to stand out but I think it’s more draining to not show up as my truest self.

Jessica Amascual describes herself as an artist, poet and community builder, holding affinity spaces for people belonging to non-dominant culture groups. She is Filipina, Lenape, white and queer and allows these to be tenants in her community healing—leading meditation classes focused on self love and ancestral healing. A popular bumper sticker reads, “Be Nice You’re in Bend,” and for some people, that can translate into being reluctant to speak up when they see instances of micro-aggression, overt racism or other things. Can you speak on how this has impacted your life? Asking for civility in the current climate can have some drawbacks (no matter where you are). In my experience, it can silence dissenting opinions—which can look like silencing black, brown, or queer voices whose opinions are often dismissed. I think asking for civility or asking everyone to be nice actually doesn’t mean ignoring aggression for the sake of not shaking the boat. I think if you allow yourself to dive a little deeper, civility means being an ally. Civility means being on the nice/loving/just side of history. Civility means love in public. And not tolerance— but love which honors human dignity. Do you make any choices in the type of clothing, etc., that you wear, based on being a person of color? When I first arrived here I promised myself I wouldn’t assimilate. I wear my hoops and head wraps (malong). I

Garrott describes himself as a creative professional, communicator and remote worker who moved to Bend with his family in 2015 to ski, mountain bike and escape the big city. Is it hard to talk about race in Central Oregon? Talking about race in this region is incredibly hard. I’ve never been to a place with less cultural diversity than here, and it’s that lack of diversity that makes talking about race so hard. It’s such a critical part of our history, of our culture; you can’t be a member of the 21st Century without being just a bit racist.  In other parts of the country people of different cultures mix together… And the racism is right out in the open. Here, people fall into two large buckets. Either they came here because it was beautiful and didn’t know how un-diverse it was OR they came here specifically because it was un-diverse. The problem is that you never know which you’re talking to. Only one of those people sees you as just another person.  What does allyship look like? It’s not “hard” and there’s no magic to it... it’s much simpler than everyone thinks… smile and say hi. THAT’S how it starts. How often do you see someone and NOT smile? That simple act costs nothing and yet connects us all… it breaks down barriers, it makes a person who feels threatened feel welcome. It doesn’t matter where you were born, or what language you speak, people want to feel welcome, they want to feel like they’re part of a community, and it starts with a smile. It’s the easiest thing you can do to make our world better.

Share your thoughts about what it means to be a person of color—and a neighbor—in Central Oregon. Being a person of color in Central Oregon began almost a year ago when I moved here from Las Vegas for work and the outdoor culture. I am a mental health professional that works as a Wilderness Therapist at Evoke Therapy Programs at Cascades. I work with adolescent boys of color out in the back country of Central Oregon. I moved to Central Oregon because I fell in love with the backcountry and the universal love for the outdoors that I didn’t experience in Vegas. Being a person of color in the great outdoors has so much meaning for me due to the lack of representation of those who look like me on the trails. I pride myself in being an advocate for diversifying the outdoors both in my personal life and in my profession. Being a person of color living in Central Oregon, a place that prides itself in outdoor adventure, deconstructs the narratives that limit the accessibility of people that look like me to explore the outdoors. I see myself and the clients I work with in the backcountry as part of this community and everything it stands for in nature. My contribution to this community is to break narratives that people of color do not have accessibility to the great outdoors or do not enjoy the outdoors. As a neighbor, I have enjoyed the healing properties and benefits of nature and I plan to pass mother nature’s blueprint down to my children and generations to come. Share your experience navigating interracial relationships. Throughout my life I’ve had many experiences in navigating interracial relationships, including my marriage. These experiences have taught me so much about myself and what any relationship needs to flourish and grow. Navigating spaces shared by other races, especially when I am usually the minority, has challenged my identity development. Being a teenager and young adult was a difficult time for me, especially since developmentally it was the time for me to figure out who I was in relation to the community around me. Through the process of assimilation, I had to find parts of me I lost and

deconstruct ideas of myself that I always thought were true in relation to those around me. This process has been difficult, but freeing at the same time. Navigating interracial relationships has allowed me to develop and grow in who I am as a Haitian-American with the historical roots I possess. These experiences have also taught me what it means to LOVE others that are different from me. Being in interracial relationships has taught me, not the rules of relationship, but what it means to be authentic and vulnerable. To be seen and to see reproduces healthy attachment to others. There have been interracial relationships that have not ended well due to the lack of this very concept. My truth in any relationship with others is to truly see and be seen. This is a truth that breaks down barriers and extends the hand to LOVE thy neighbor.

Share your experience navigating mixed-race relationships. First, the challenges, not knowing how your family or families feel about the relationship. Next, how do your colleagues and friends feel about your significant other? How are you going to raise your children? Based on the things you do, will this impact your partner professionally, socially, religiously and emotionally. Considerations: make sure you have those hard conversations with one another; including race, bias, cultural appropriation, where do you want to live, education and money. Because more times than not you both grew up in different environments and for a relationship to work, you have to garner trust, respect and have the willingness to be transparent with one another.

As the legendary hip-hop trio comes to Bend, let’s admire the group for more than just “O.P.P.” By Isaac Biehl

Naughty By Nature is Timeless

R

Universal Attractions Agency

ap music has changed immensely since its inception, and just in the last few years, a shift has occurred in what becomes popular. But even in a genre that continues to evolve on the daily, there’s no doubt about the classic groups that continue to reign supreme. And Naughty By Nature? The definition of classic. Made up of Treach, Vin Rock and Dj Kay Gee, Naughty By Nature has boasted quite the career in music, even winning a Grammy in 1995. While for many, “O.P.P.” might be the king of songs in the NBN pantheon, the New Jersey-based group has a discography filled with gems that shouldn’t be overlooked. Here’s a rundown of some of the best Naughty By Nature songs that aren’t “O.P.P.” or “Hip Hop Hooray.” “Yoke The Joker” The opener to the group’s debut album, “Yoke The Joker” is a straight rhyming clinic for four minutes. This is one of the darkest songs in all of NBN’s discography, with raps from Treach like, “You ain’t ready for the Freddy of rap. You can’t kill me, I step into your dreams, you feel me,” and a closing line of “Ain’t it amazing what some paper plus a pen and tongue can do?” it was clear the group meant business putting this as the first song on its debut album. “Wickedest Man Alive” Taking on some reggae influence with this one, “Wickedest Man Alive” shows off the pure fun a Naughty By Nature song can have. With an assist

Even if a major snowstorm blows in for this weekend's WinterFest, it will be no match for the hot tracks from these guys.

from mentor Queen Latifah, this is a prime example of how NBN used pop sensibility to its advantage when making music. “Thankx for Sleepwalking” Opening with “I got more damn time than I got money, honey,” the song is a dedication to all the people trying to get close to the group’s members because of their money. With a spectacular beat headed by the piano, “Thankx for Sleepwalking” sounds effortless in comparison to other NBN

tracks—but this one is loose and enjoyable to the highest degree. “Craziest” I’d be very surprised if NBN didn’t perform “Craziest” at WinterFest this weekend. It’s got the perfect chorus for a live show—easy and fun to echo out into the night. Here’s hoping we hear, “Bend homies are the craziest!” shouted from the stage. “Feel Me Flow” This is the one for me. “Feel Me Flow” feels like the whole crew is

showing off for the entire neighborhood on a hot summer afternoon and just rapping. I can vividly picture the ice cream melting off the cone as the kids gather around to hear. It’s simply good times and good energy with Treach doing what he does best. Naughty By Nature

L

ocal band Brandon Prinzing & The Old Revival will be making its WinterFest debut Saturday night, kicking things off for Jemere Morgan and Naughty By Nature. Funny enough, when I reached out to Prinzing for this story he was spending time in Hawaii— enjoying a far different scene than what he and the band will be experiencing this weekend. Prinzing gave some insight into his excitement to play the festival, the band’s upcoming plans and tips for playing in the cold. Source Weekly: Is this your first time playing WinterFest? Are you excited to perform there? Brandon Prinzing: This is our first time playing WinterFest, and as someone who grew up loving the snow, it’s one of my favorite festivals. We are so excited to be playing and to share the stage with some truly talented artists. SW: I saw on Facebook that you have some new songs to share. Does this mean a new album is coming? What else can we expect? BP: We have been working on something for a while now, and we are very excited to share it with everyone. We have some new members, a new sound and a new album that will be coming out late spring. It you want a teaser of what it will be like, we will be playing some new material at WinterFest! SW: Music is obviously a very important part of your life. According to the band’s website, you had to step

away from it for quite some time. What does it feel like now to have it back as such an integral part of your life? BP: Music has been such an important part of my life for so long. When I quit writing and performing music, it was like I wasn’t the same person. Now that I’m back writing and touring, it feels like I’m right where I’m supposed to be. There isn’t a better feeling than stepping on stage with The Old Revival. SW: Do you have strategies, tips or hacks for performing in the cold? BP: The key to staying warm is moving, and once we get on stage, we do enough of that to keep the blood flowing! And a little whisky never hurts. SW: Naughty By Nature will close down the night you perform. Do you have a favorite song by NBN? BP: I’m really looking forward to seeing them perform! When it comes to Naughty by Nature, how can your favorite not be “O.P.P.”? (FYI, see the rest of our Sound section for my picks for other Naughty By Nature songs, beyond that well-known tune...)

ONPOINT COMMUNITY CREDIT UNION OREGON WINTERFEST GUIDE

The largest winter festival on the west coast takes place right here in Central Oregon! A yearly tradition and staple in the community, the OnPoint Community Credit Union Oregon WinterFest brings together everyone for a weekend celebration of music, live entertainment, food, drink and art! Lay It Out Events is thrilled to have OnPoint Community Credit Union, the largest community-owned credit union in Oregon, back again as the 2020 Oregon WinterFest title sponsor. Their support is always crucial to making the magic of WinterFest possible—and we couldn’t do it without them! We’d also like to thank our presenting sponsor AT&T, and the rest of the other great businesses who will be joining us this year as a 2020 sponsor. Just like in years’ past, WinterFest will bring together some of the best artists throughout the Pacific Northwest to showcase their works in the Light, Ice and Fire Exposition—also known as L.I.F.E.! Last year we started featuring Central Oregon Light Art, and this year the fixture will be even bigger as we light up the banks of the Deschutes River once again. The I is for ice and the Hayden Homes Ice Carving Expedition. Attendees can watch gifted carvers from throughout the Northwest transform blocks of ice into works of art, showcased throughout the festival on Saturday and Sunday. Then the F is the brightest and warmest of them all, as it is tradition at Oregon WinterFest to showcase some of the coolest, biggest and most unique fire pit sculptures you’ll ever see—it is an experience unlike anything else. WinterFest weekend also features some of the best in live entertainment. This year on the Oregrown Music Stage we’ll be treated with epic performances from country superstar Lindsay Ell on Friday night and hip-hop legends Naughty By Nature Saturday night! Plus, more music throughout the weekend. WinterFest goers can also expect to be thrilled by the 10 Barrel Vertical Challenge, as some of the most talented skiers and snowboarders in the area will come to show off their air right in the heart of the festival grounds. For those looking to feel the excitement of being active at WinterFest, you should look no further than the Princess Athletic Royal Run 5K. The Royal Run is a poker run that takes you right through the festival grounds—wear costumes to get an extra card for your hand and you could even win a prize at the finish line! For families, there are plenty of activities for you and the kiddos to get into! The Family Play Zone will feature a variety of educational, fun and crafty games for kids to take part in. You can also sign up the little ones for the Hot Cocoa Run, as they enjoy in a fun run of their own. We also suggest not to miss out on J.D. Platt’s K9 Kings! Witness high flying stunts and meet some of these cute and talented pups on either Saturday or Sunday.

Lindsay Ell – 8:30pm

Lauded as “one of the most exciting and talented young artists in country music” (Forbes), Lindsay Ell is a triple threat: an accomplished musician, unique vocalist and songwriter. The Calgary native learned to play guitar while traveling with her father to country-bluegrass camps as a young girl. Ell honed her craft as a musical stylist and songwriter after being discovered by Bachman-Turner Overdrive and The Guess Who’s Randy Bachman (“Taking Care of Business” / “American Woman”) who discovered her at the age of 13.

Blackstrap Bluegrass brings you hard driving bluegrass with catchy originals that give a nod to the roots of Americana music. Based in the high desert of Central Oregon, Blackstrap plays hard on and off stage. Fueled by deep powder, fresh hops, and wide-open spaces, they keep people dancing everywhere from throwdowns to hoedowns—so WinterFest will be no different.

Precious Byrd – 7pm A hometown favorite, Precious Byrd is a six-piece high energy dance/ rock band from beautiful Bend. Featuring Corey Parnell on vocals, Casey Parnell on rhythm guitar, Derek Williams on lead guitar, Michael Summers on drums, and Grammy-award winning artist Lonnie Chapin on bass. Their high energy brought the house down at last year’s WinterFest, so expect nothing less!

Saturday, February 16 Brandon Prinzing & The Old Revival – 5:30pm Brandon Prinzing & The Old Revival have a simple concept. They believe music makes us feel alive, and the few hours you spend at their show should be a revival. No matter what you believe, what you look like or where you come from, music saved Brandon Prinzing’s life, and he wants it to save yours too.

Jemere Morgan – 7pm As the son of Gramps Morgan, Jemere Morgan has toured in front of thousands across the globe as an opener for his family. From Africa, Australia, South America and across European waters, this experience is clear in his music, and Morgan is sure to represent reggae to the fullest with a full-on revelation of a performance.

Naughty By Nature – 8:30pm Few groups in music can boast a near 20-year career that has been both consistent and history making. Naughty By Nature, the Grammy and American Music Award winning rap trio, initially called New Style, began performing at talent shows and were discovered by fellow New Jersey native and then- emerging hip-hop artist Queen Latifah. Eventually signing the group to her management company, “Flavor Unit Management,” Latifah helped them land a deal with Tommy Boy Records. You’ve heard many of their songs on the radio— “O.P.P.,” “Feel Me Flow,” “Hip Hop Hooray” and more. The trio are masters of creating smash hits, and will bring their infectious energy to the Oregrown Music stage at this year’s OnPoint Community Credit Union Oregon WinterFest.

The intrigue and excitement of fire is universal Brought to you by Chevrolet of Bend, each year the Fire Pit and Sculpture Competition brings together an amazing set of artists to create some of the most unique fire pits in the land. From spaceships, fire breathing dragons, mobiles and more—we have it all at WinterFest. In addition to this year’s competitors, we will also be featuring an amazing piece of art from Tabasco Mills of the Iron Monkeys. He’ll be bringing by his incredible fire pit that was showcased at last year’s Burning Man festival! To see more Burning Man art, you can also check out Infinite Moment: Burning Man on the Horizon, a new exhibit at the High Desert Museum.

Meet The Competitors

Ron Moore

Bonny has been welding for around 30 years. Having moved to Bend seven years ago, she has continued to keep on making art and sells all kinds of metal art. She’s currently incorporating resin and alcohol inks into her art.

Trent Farrer & Cory Noble

Bonny Bowens

Dylan Wock

Dylan earned his bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Oregon and uses those lessons in his work every day, pushing the boundaries of sustainable design.

Tim + Celeste McGowan

This duo is the team behind Iron Roots Design, an interior design and fabrication company in Bend. The McGowans specialize in custom indoor and outdoor features, utilizing their knowledge of mixed mediums in their designs.

Chris Ferguson

Chris received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Industrial Design from the Kansas City Art Institute. He spends his professional career crafting furniture, designing light fixtures, making cameras, renovating homes, taking photographs and exploring the outdoors.

Miguel Edwards

As a sculptor, photographer and installation artist, Miguel is always experimenting with his craft to find new ways to explore beauty. He tells us that “time, chaos and intuition” are the co-conspirators in his creative process. Whether it’s steel, glass or film—Miguel is sure to put his all into his art.

Doug Wagner

As the founder and owner of MODERNFAB in Bend, Doug Wagner is an expert at fabrication and execution. Steel is the main ingredient for most of his projects, but he does combine other material into the mix.

Jud Turner

Jud Turner currently lives in Eugene and is the man behind The Oblivion Factory. He spends as much time here as possible welding, working and laughing—a perfect remedy.

Jay Nielson

Jay Nielson works with scraps and reclaimed materials to prove that beauty can come from garbage. The larger and heavier the material is, the more calming it is for him to work with.

Ron is equally inspired by doing great work—but also by building a team of passionate people determined to build great things. With 30 years of experience in building unique outdoor living spaces all over the country, this duo now specializes in music and fire entertainment as part of UKIAH. Their sculpture this year will perfectly represent that as they aim to ignite the music!

Marvin Wafford

Marvin previously worked for a company that did both wood and metal projects for casinos all over the United States, with his work showcased in virtually every casino on the Las Vegas strip. He now owns his own company, Wafford Metalcraft, here in Central Oregon where he designs custom metal projects and fire pit creations. This is Marvin’s third entry into the fire pit competition!

Skye Kimmel & Andrew Wachs

Skye and Andrew are Bend locals. Skye and her brother Josh Richardson are owners of Downtown Ornamental Iron, a full range fabrication metal shop. Specializing in high end railing systems, architectural features and large scale projects. Andrew is the owner of Weld Studio: specialty design, fabrication and sculpture. Andrew has several sculptures around Bend, most notably, “Ghost,” in the roundabout located at Wilson and Bond in the Old Mill District. The piece they are making is titled “Cyclone.”

Create Art with The People’s Forge Project

At this year’s Oregon WinterFest, The People’s Forge will be setting up a collaboration art project! Attendees can join in with the craftspeople to help create a unique piece of public art by helping forge more than 400 pieces. The finished mural will be placed somewhere in Bend!

Meet The Artists Russ Leno

Russ has sculpted everything from ice, snow, wood and pumpkins for over 30 years. He’s carved in two international competitions and many others throughout Canada, Oregon and Washington state. Russ has even carved for people like Bill Gates and Vice President Al Gore.

John Stark

Using mainly locally sourced woods such as Juniper, Ponderosa and Lodgepole, Jon Stark creates striking one-of-a-kind sculptures and furniture that reflect his love for the wild beauty that abounds here in Central Oregon.

Lisa Donze

Lisa started out sand sculpting through Sand in the City and as her talent grew, she began to have opportunities to add snow, ice and pumpkins to her repertoire. When she’s not carving, Lisa spends her time enjoying family and running an insurance agency.

SPONSORED BY

Last year marked the first annual Central Oregon Light Art (COLA) exhibition, a successful expansion of the popular Fire Pit and Sculpture installations visitors look forward to every year. This year we look forwarding to showcasing even more light art as the artists light up the banks of the Deschutes River for us all at WinterFest.

Jon Donze

Jon got his start by helping his wife Lisa, and has assisted her in her carving for years, including past WinterFests. This is his first year branching out and becoming a solo ice carver at WinterFest. Will the former assistant keep up with his wife? Come watch them both carve side by side! Lynn describes herself as a multi-media artist. She’s been involved with WinterFest for a long time, with her first featured piece at the festival being a snow sculpture called “Ali Baba.” She’s very excited to explore ice as a new medium!

Daniel Gregg

Daniel Gregg is the owner of Alpenglow Ice Sculptures. He has over 30 years of experience in the field and supplies sculptures to a variety of events.

Abney Wallace

As short, dark days and long, quiet nights carry us along on the cold shoulders of winter, a hunger for light grows. During this half of the year, light is found mostly in dreams where, like the surprise of a rainbow or the sudden zip of lightning, its ephemeral presence is no less exciting. We equate light with spirit—a reminder that beyond our frail matter bodies, we may in fact be eternal.

August Cary, Brian Herbert & Chris Edwards

A trio of artists, engineers and fabricators who bring their skills and vision together in pursuit of opening our eyes to something more.

Chris Ferguson

Chris received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Industrial Design from the Kansas City Art Institute. He spends his professional career crafting furniture, designing light fixtures, making cameras, renovating homes, taking photographs and exploring the outdoors.

Julie Winter

Julie amplifies found surface marks into visual language through her printmaking and moxed media objects.

Lloyd McMullen

Lloyd is a mixed media/found object artist. Her lifelong passion of obscure facts, shiny objects and rusting metal translate into two and three-dimensional paintings/ constructions. A realization Lloyd made was that the intricate connections that result in an electrical connection are an apt metaphor for the links in logic and luck that lead to innovation and invention.

Wes Shafer

Wes has developed his expertise and his own techniques of speaking the language of color, movement, and time during his 20-plus years as a glass artist. He also lends his artistic talents to painting while at his home studio in Eugene.

Doug Wagner

As the founder and owner of MODERNFAB in Bend, Doug Wagner is an expert at fabrication and execution. Steel is the main ingredient for most of his projects, but he does combine other material into the mix.

Twinkle Trees

Twinkle Trees are inspired by nature’s beauty. They are realistic and illuminated trees that can be placed indoors or outdoors. Heights range from five to 22 feet tall. They’ll be bringing their unique take on light and nature to WinterFest.

Greg Amanti

Greg’s series encompass many different materials, the majority of his work is built on a foundation of string and plaster. He starts with a sketch and then builds the illustration into a threedimensional representation. Greg’s hope is to create a visceral landscape that reveals itself a little at a time, in which the viewer is immersed.

Raoul Desibour

Raoul is a visual artist who currently resides in Bend. He started making sculptures in 2011, with his first piece being featured at the Burning Man Art Festival. Having contributed to last year’s Light Art exhibit, Raoul is excited to embark on a journey of making his very own light art sculpture.

Meet the Royal Couple!

Your Ice Queen, Kara Klontz Kara Klontz is a pursuer of the arts in both her professional and personal life. She has always had a passion for the performing arts, and can often be found onstage in local theatre productions—most recently, performing the role of Carla in Mejaski Choreography’s “Nine the Musical” as well as Miss Honey in Thoroughly Modern Productions’ “Matilda the Musical”. As a lifelong book nerd, Kara had an epiphany in college and realized someone somewhere gets paid to create the artwork for book covers. She set her sights then on becoming a book cover designer, and spent the first five years out of college working for a local book cover design studio. Then, after a short but fun and very “Bend” experience working as the lead graphic designer for Deschutes Brewery, she started her own book cover design business, Kara Klontz Design. She now works with major publishing companies across the country, designing book covers for a wide range of genres—all while working from home with a flexible schedule perfectly suited to take advantage of everything we love that Bend has to offer! Excited to be this year’s Oregon WinterFest Ice Queen, Kara is sporting the wears of Rowena Ravenclaw of house Ravenclaw.

YOG A

Your Fire King, John Kish Actor and Horticulturist John Kish can usually be found amongst the greenery in his Bend plant shop, Somewhere That’s Green. He strives to create healthier indoor areas through the power of living flora. Besides running a plant-packed shop (part of 9th St. Village and DIY Cave), he also offers in-home consultations and greenification. In addition to STG, he’s part of the duo running Him & Her Plants Designs, a new plant event design company for weddings and more! Artistically, John can be found on stage. At the moment he’s producing and directing “Little Shop of Horrors” in Bend, the cult classic musical with a man-eating plant. Stoked to be chosen as this year’s Oregon Winterfest Fire King, John is sporting the wears of Godrick Gryffindor from house Gryffindor.

10 Screenings, Four Days

How we regular folk got to enjoy Sundance, the premiere U.S. film festival By Richard Sitts Courtesy Floy Sitts

Floy Sitts, left, and Richard Sitts flank filmmaker Kirsten Johnson in downtown Park City, Utah, during the recent 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

Another team player is Park City’s zero-emission electric bus system that ferries filmgoers between venues and back and forth to park-and-ride transport stations, all for free. Traffic around Park City is like a swarm of bees buzzing around a hive. The festival also has a decidedly international flavor; different languages and accents can be heard while standing in line and walking the sidewalks. Venues included the historic Egyptian Theatre in downtown Park City, big rooms in hotels around town, a sprawling theater connected to a local high school, the historic Tower Theatre operated by the Salt Lake Film Society and the sparkling Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. No matter how early we arrived to a screening, dozens of people were already in line—though we always found decent seats. Huge white

Burning Man in Bend’s High Desert Exhibition sheds light on unique festival, set in the Nevada desert For those who’ve wondered what inspires someone to tow trailers and tutus into the Nevada desert for eight days at the end of August every year for Burning Man, now is the chance to understand it. The High Desert Museum brings this unique annual event and the creative forces behind it into perspective with the exhibit, “Infinite Moment: Burning Man on the Horizon.” Along with some fun interactive art pieces, the exhibition lays out a fundamental understanding of the cultural phenomenon happening since 1986.

tents were set up outside venues so that patrons could keep warm while in line. Floy’s favorite film was the documentary, “Dick Johnson is Dead,” which won a U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Innovation in Non-Fiction Storytelling. It dealt with aging and dementia, with director Kirsten Johnson filming her 86-year-old father as they dealt with his diminishing health. It had more comedic than dramatic moments, and provoked tears as it reminded us of the last years that we spent with Floy’s father, Skip, who also had some dementia. The following afternoon, Floy spotted filmmaker Johnson at a sidewalk cafe and went up to tell her how much the film touched her. Johnson could not have been more genuine and gracious as she posed for a photo with us and entered her email address into Floy’s phone. She even

asked if Floy had any favorite dementia stories about Skip. My favorite screening was a documentary, “Whirlybird,” which won the Amazon Studios Producers Award for Documentary Features. It was about the husband-and-wife helicopter pilot/camerawoman team that from the air covered major news events in Los Angeles, including wildfires, the O.J. Simpson freeway pursuit and the 1992 riots. It was a fascinating portrait with a wealth of archival TV news footage of real-time events. I’ll just leave it at that to avoid any spoilers. My biggest surprise of the festival was how much I enjoyed the documentary, “Happy Happy Joy Joy: The Ren & Stimpy Story,” about the groundbreaking cartoon series and its controversial creator, John Kricfalusi. We also came away from Sundance with a “small world” story. Our hosts had a single extra ticket to the documentary, “Once Upon a Time in Venezuela,” so they instructed us to find someone to give it to. While in line for our first film that day, Floy waved it around, announcing “free ticket.” We found no takers. In line at our second film, I stood next to a Navajo woman from Gallup, New Mexico, where I had worked covering the Navajo Nation for the Gallup Independent. It turned out that we had mutual acquaintances, and our new friend gladly accepted our free ticket to the screening that afternoon. And now, in the meantime, we’ll continue to support BendFilm and all its activities, including its 17th annual festival set for Oct. 8-11. Roll credits.

“The high desert is such an important part of the experience of Burning Man, and we want to connect people to the land and what to experience in it,” says curator Laura Ferguson. The main room of the exhibition gives one the feeling of being on the “Playa,” the center of Burning Man’s Black Rock City, with its interactive multi-media sculptures. That includes “Light Chimes” from Portland’s Sticky and Co., as well as original pieces created by the Burning Man curation team. One piece is a projected animation that comes to life as visitors sit in the corresponding sculpture: a three-seat wheeled vehicle. While the vehicle doesn’t move, the screen in front does, offering the illusion of riding a bike across the playa. Next to it is Ghost Truck One, created by the High Desert Museum with L.A. artist Jesse Small, who plucked the front of the truck from a field in Terrebonne, creating a delicate, hand-done pattern that almost looks like

lace. On the back is a dodecahedron filled with mirrors and lights that gives a feeling of infiniteness. “The more you explore it, the bigger it gets,” says Dustin Cockerham, curator of the exhibit. At the doorway is a pay phone inspired by the long-running Burning Man installation called “Talk to God,” where listeners can pick up the receiver and speak to a person on the other end of the line. The exhibition will be on disGhost Truck One. To prep for the exhibit, the High Desert play until October, with several Museum sent three of its staff to Burning Man this summer. events running on conjunction with it, including a lecture with a representative of the Burning Man ProjInfinite Moment: ect on April 30 and a presentation by Burning Man on the Horizon The High Desert Museum Portland-based photographer Stewart 59800 US-97, Bend Harvey, whose work spans 30 years of Admission varies Burning Man.

fter the alarm clock jolted us awake at 3 a.m. for a flight from Redmond to Salt Lake City, Utah, it would be nearly 24 hours before our heads hit pillows again. Over a four-day run, my wife, Floy, and I would see five features, three documentaries and two collections of shorts during the 2020 Sundance Film Festival in nearby Park City, with starting times ranging from 9 am to 11:30 pm. We were among the approximately 130,000 film fans and industry insiders who invade this quaint mountain town every January. This year’s visiting celebrities included Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Farrell, promoting their Sundance selection, “Downhill,” which goes into wide release on Valentine’s Day. The 10-day event is considered by many to be one of the world’s most influential film festivals, second only to Cannes. We were invited to attend by an old fraternity brother from Kansas State University. For the past 30 years or so, he and his family have lived in Park City, where the festival began in 1985. Back then, our host recalled how organizers stood outside venues handing out free tickets. The festival has since expanded to include screens in Salt Lake City. Once the organizers had announced the film schedule in December, we emailed our hosts a list of films that appealed to us, covering a wide swath of genres. We weren’t particular and said we’d be happy with whatever our hosts could come up with. Sundance is staffed by more than 2,400 volunteers—many of whom return year after year, according to the Sundance Institute website. As volunteers at BendFilm, we greatly appreciated their efforts.

Love the Wine You’re With LITTLE BITES Local oenophiles share their knowledge on chocolate and wine pairings, just in time for V-Day (or “me day”)

By Nicole Vulcan

Cayla Clark

A

fter spending several days with Central Oregon winemakers and wine shop owners, I fully understand the difference between an enthusiast and an oenophile. Sarah Worley, owner of Good Drop Wine Shoppe, doesn’t just love wine; she lives, breathes and drinks it. Cindy Grossman, who co-owns Faith, Hope & Charity Vineyards with her husband, Roger, proudly showed off her award-winning wines and her sprawling, breathtaking Terrebonne acreage. Doug Maragas, the owner of Maragas Winery, shared his long family history of traditional, passionate winemaking. When looking for a special Valentine’s Day treat to indulge in alone or share with a loved one, look no further than delicious wines expertly paired with locally made chocolates. 

Good Drop Wine Shoppe Worley purchased the quaint, centrally-located wine shop in 2014, determined to make it more accessible. She carries a variety of wines from all around the world, from affordable, regional wines to collectable, well-aged foreign bottles. All of these wines have one thing in common: She’s tasted them and she stands behind them. She shared several of her favorite wines, pairing each with a small piece of chocolate and explaining the importance of a suitable pairing. “A good rule of thumb is that lighter wines go with lighter chocolates,” she explained. “White wines go with white chocolate; more heavy and full-bodied wines go with dark chocolate.” Pairing: 2017 German Riesling Trocken with a white chocolate truffle from Goody’s Chocolates & Ice Cream “Oregon is home to some great Rieslings, too,” Worley explained. “A rich white chocolate with creamy, vanilla notes will be enhanced by undertones of pear and apricot. These are luscious, oily-style wines. They have great acidity, they’re bright and beautiful. Rieslings are also great with spicy food.” Pro tip: If you have a favorite Thai restaurant and are looking for a good wine pairing, don’t hesitate to pop by and inquire—some local restaurants will waive the corkage fee if the bottle is from Good Drop!  Pairing: 2018 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir (Black Magnolia) with a milk chocolate truffle from Oregon Craft Chocolatiers “The sweetness of the milk chocolate brings out the bold fruit flavors,” Worley said. “Merlot also pairs well with sweeter desserts.” 

Nothing says love like local wine paired with local chocolates.

Pairing: 2013 Cote-Rotie (Maison Christophe Pichon) with Black Sheep dark chocolate Black Sheep, a locally company that donates a portion of its proceeds to creating affordable prosthetics for children, makes a rich, 72% Ecuadorian dark chocolate bar. “This wine brings out the rich flavor of the chocolate,” said Worley. “Wine is meant to enhance the flavors of food. You can also pair this chocolate with a port. It will eliminate some of the sweetness and counterbalance the dessert wine perfectly.” Hope, Faith & Charity Vineyards Cindy and Roger Grossman decided to “retire” on 312 acres in Terrebonne, where they now have a vineyard containing nine grape varietals and a gorgeous, barn-style tasting room surrounded by a trout-filled pond and expansive hills. The winery is named after the Three Sisters mountains, clearly visible in the distance.  Pairing: 2017 Pinot Rose with a piece of white chocolate from Redmond’s The Chocolate Company “This wine is a new release,” shared Cindy Grossman. “It’s light and fruit-forward, and pairs well with a rich piece of white chocolate.” Pairing: 2015 Viognier with a chocolate-covered orange peel from The Chocolate Company “This is one of our wines that is really putting Oregon wines on the map,” she added. “It won a silver medal at the San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition. It pairs well with the slight bitterness of the orange peel and the contrasting sweetness of the chocolate.” Pairing: 2015 Marechal Foch paired with milk chocolate-covered strawberries from The Chocolate Company. “This is a unique wine, which opens with notes of rich fruit like dark cherries and pomegranate. It’s a lighter-bodied

red, and pairing it with chocolate covered fruit… raspberries, strawberries… will bring out the fruit in the wine, enhancing all of the flavors and subtle notes.” Maragas Winery The passion Doug Maragas has for the craft of wine-making is immediately apparent. His spacious tasting room is lined with hundreds of wine-filled oak barrels. Family photos hang on the walls, one showing his grandmother harvesting grapes in Greece. “I make wine in the same style as my grandparents,” Maragas shared. “I do it in the traditional, old-style. Everything happens on-site. It’s a full-service operation.” Pairing: 2017 Blanco with a white chocolate and raspberry truffle from Goody’s “Our Blanco pairs well with white chocolate and fruit, and lighter-fare foods in general,” shared Maragas. “All of the grapes for our Blanco are grown on-site, and there we leave the wine on its lees for an entire year, making the taste different from other white blends.” Pairing: 2016 Tempranillo with a milk chocolate truffle from Oregon Craft Chocolatiers “Our Tempranillo is a lighter wine, barrel-aged for two years. It’s medium-bodied and very fruit-forward… earthy, but not smoky. Milk chocolate with fruit would make an ideal pairing. These grapes are harvested from the Belmont Vineyard (in Oregon’s Applegate Valley), and it’s truly an ‘Oregon Style’ wine.” Pairing: 2014 Legal Zinfandel paired with Seahorse Chocolate’s 70% Vietnam chocolate bar “The Legal Zin is made from an inky, tannic and almost black grape, and it would pair well with a rich, dark chocolate.” Seahorse Chocolate, a locally-owned company, crafts “bean-to-bar” treats meant to enhance the complexities of the wines that people choose to pair them with.

It's that time again, to get your zwickel on.

Zwickelmania 2020 Where to sample the brewtastic goods Judging by the number of people at area breweries nearly any night of the week, Central Oregonians don’t need a special event to entice them to celebrate Oregon’s craft beer scene. BUT, we’re also guessing that a special event isn’t a reason not to celebrate, either. Sat., Feb. 22 is Zwickelmania, a statewide event heralding the love of craft beer. Thirty Oregon breweries collaborated on a limited-run Zwickelmania beer, to be canned and available at participating breweries. Sales from the “State of Excitement IPA,” a West Coast IPA, go to benefit the Oregon Brewers Guild. Here’s where locals can take part, with each brewery doing various events that can include tours, meet the brewer events and of course, samples. -Bend Brewing Company -Beval Craft Brewing -Boneyard Beer -Bridge 99 Brewery -Cascade Lakes Brewing’s Redmond location -Craft Kitchen & Brewery -Crux Fermentation Project -Deschutes Brewery & Deschutes Pub -GoodLife Brewing -Immersion Brewing -McMenamins -Silver Moon Brewing -Sunriver Brewing Co.’s Sunriver location -Wild Ride Brewing -Worthy Brewing Zwickelmania

Out in the “Woods”

Sipping beer at Shade Tree Brewing

on your favorite loca l businesses

By Heidi Howard

or my second piece of 2020, I stuck with my promise to review more beers outside of Bend. This time I ventured all the way to…. Deschutes River Woods!!! OK, OK… so yeah… it’s technically still Bend, but please keep reading. It was a fun visit and is completely unique to Central Oregon. I took Baker Road to get to Shade Tree, admiring the huge lots along the way. Indian Road turned to gravel, and if I hadn’t had the address up on GPS, I might have missed Shade Tree— which is on a residential lot. On the door of the brewery (a large shop) was the Shade Tree sign, only visible once you’ve pulled into the driveway. I was greeted by Larry Johnson, the sole owner of Shade Tree. Inside the brewery was a beautiful classic muscle car, the Ford Mustang. Behind that, Johnson’s beer taps were made of real Hurst brand shifters. I’m a bit of a car buff so I thought that was awesome. Johnson used to be an ASE certified mechanic before he dedicated his time to brewing. It shows in both his custom brewing system and his self-converted 100% biodiesel Volkswagen, which is his daily driver. Shade Tree’s website boasts the brewery’s philosophy: “Being Green Saves Green.” Johnson’s brewing system is not automated, which saves water and energy while reducing wastewater. But I’m giving away too much! I’ll leave the rest for you to check out on your tour. I tasted several Shade Tree beers, but my favorite by far was the Corvette Strong Ale. This strong ale isn’t too sweet, but still nice and malty, and oh, so smooth, rich and delightful. The aroma had a touch of earthiness and a great malty aroma. It’s quite fantastic. It had a little kick to it, too, at 10% ABV. It drinks easy, so those who partake, beware! Plus, the label is really neat. Corvette won a bronze medal in 2017 at the Best of Craft Beer Awards, a national brewing competition held right here in Bend. This year’s Best of Craft Beer Awards was held Feb. 7-9, and yours truly was a judge. Johnson also brews the beer for the Pour House Grill, under the name Chapter 13. I highly recommend bringing your beer-loving visitors to Shade Tree for this Bend-centric beer tour. Check the Shade Tree website for tour times. A ticket is required through Eventbrite, but it’s free. People can also contact the brewery directly to schedule appointments for individual or small group tours—just call or use the “contact us”

1917: From director Sam Mendes comes a war movie unlike any you’ve seen before. Crafted to look like the entire film is done in one shot, “1917” is easily the most intense war film since “Saving Private Ryan” or “The Thin Red Line.” See this on the biggest and loudest screen you can find. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema, Odem Theater Pub.

GRETEL & HANSEL: From visionary director Oz Perkins comes this bleakly beautiful retelling of the classic Grimm fairy tale. Some of the strangest and strongest horror imagery of the last few years, this deserves to be seen on the biggest screen possible. Will creep you out to your bones. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

2020 OSCAR NOMINATED SHORTS: Every

I’ll take three more, please.” Kevin Hart does the greatest Danny Glover impression and Danny DeVito is a national treasure…what more do you need?

A HIDDEN LIFE: The new film by legendary director Terrence Malick tells the story of a German man who refuses to join the Nazi party during WWII and is sent to prison. This is Malick back in fine form, as he moves away from his abstract work like “Knight of Cups” and heads back into historical fiction. Sisters Movie House

JUST MERCY: Michael B. Jordan and Brie

BAD BOYS FOR LIFE: It’s shocking the producers

didn’t wait until the fourth installment to use this title, but at least we have another one of this ridiculous franchise to enjoy. This one is actually surprisingly serious, focused more on aging and mortality than one would think for a movie like this. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

BIRDS OF PREY: An absolutely bonkers comic book movie featuring Margot Robbie as psychotic anti-hero Harley Quinn. For everyone who thought “Joker” was an original comic book movie, “Birds of Prey” shows audiences how weird DC Comics can get with their movies. Way too much fun.

JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL: Everyone’s complain-

classy and stupid so quickly it’s bound to give you whiplash, but it’s definitely not as bad as critics would have you believe. Downey gives it his all and there’s something refreshing about the film’s lack of pretension. Still, there are a lot of fart jokes. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

FROZEN 2: While not possessing the same charms as the original, “Frozen 2” is still another solid entry in the Disney canon. The songs aren’t quite as memorable, but holy heck, the animation is absolutely stunning to look at and Kristen Bell is a national treasure, so there’s still plenty to enjoy with realistic expectations. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE GENTLEMEN: Ever since “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,” Guy Ritchie has been making very specific British crime comedies, but “The Gentlemen” is easily his best since 2000’s “Snatch.” Even as the originality of these movies has worn off over the years, Ritchie’s frenetic direction keeps them worth watching. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond CInema

Larson star in this true story of a lawyer fighting to get an innocent man out of prison. From the filmmaker behind the modern classic, “Short Term 12,” this should be an absolutely captivating experience. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

KNIVES OUT: “Clue” is one of the best movies ever

LITTLE WOMEN: I can’t imagine a better Christmas present than seeing Greta Gerwig’s take on “Little Women.” With a cast featuring the finest women actors of their generation, this should be the definitive take on the material. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX MIDNIGHT FAMILY: An absolutely riveting

documentary about a family that runs a private, for-profit ambulance in Mexico City. This will pin you to your chair for an hour and a half as you watch the Ochoa family rocket through the streets trying to be the first ambulance to arrive at horrific scenes. Tin Pan Theater

THE RHYTHM SECTION: Blake Lively gives the performance of her career in this dour and intense action thriller about a woman who’s lost everything getting some very elaborate revenge. If this had made money instead of flopping massively, it would have made a solid Bond-esque franchise. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER: The ninth and “final” film in the Skywalker Saga sees Rey, Finn and Poe take on Kylo Ren and the First Order for all the marbles. Remember, no matter who lives or dies, the real winner is Disney. Every single time. Always Disney. Our new benevolent overlords. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE TURNING: Based on the classic novella “The Turn of the Screw” by Henry James, “The Turning” is a solid little ghost movie up until one of the worst endings in cinematic history. It’s almost worth seeing just so you can be blown away by the sheer ineptness on display. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

A surprisingly scary show about angels, demons and miracles from the creative team behind “The Good Wife” and “The Good Fight.” Way creepier than “American Horror Story,” this will give you the jolt you need while waiting for “The Haunting of Hill House” to return.

in Jordan SCREEN Boarding Locally produced documentary, “7 Hills,” shows peace at the skatepark By Jared Rasic skatepark. The moment I had my first experience with an all-girl Syrian refugee class at the park, I knew that this story was bigger than that. This was the first project in my life that I saw so clearly,” Locke explains. “I knew that I wanted to make this film. I was overcome with pure admiration and love for these kids who had gone through so much and still were able to put a smile on their face and enjoy life. So, I asked for help. I started a Gofundme and received many donations from my amazing Bend family. This film would not have been made without their contributions.” The differences between the kids— whether they be cultural or religious— never outweigh their love of skating. Peace in the Middle East exists across the graffiti’d expanse of 7 Hills. “Families from all over have fled wars and landed in Amman, bringing with them their culture, their food…everything,” says Locke. “The skatepark acted like a small version of what the entire city represents. A melting pot.  It’s a very complex situation happening in Amman and there’s not an easy answer. Jordan’s population nears 10 million. The majority of the people are

accepting and go about their daily  lives. There is the occasional occurrence of racism, but putting these kids together at the skatepark and having them interact together acts as conduit between cultures and breaks down these stereotypes and begins to build awareness and acceptance. That aspect of 7 Hills transcends the skateboarding that happens there.” Youth skaters from different cultures and religions come together in Jordan. While watching the film, it’s impossible not to imagine how of their lives. These are not ‘Muslim’ a certain section of reactionary Amer- extremist looking to take over your culicans would react to a refugee crisis on ture. These are people fleeing horrible that scale here, so I asked Locke what we situations and seeking a better life for as Americans could learn from the situ- their family.

A

statistic floats by early on in local filmmaker Jesse Locke’s new documentary, “7 Hills,” which brings a shock to the system. The country of Jordan has 67,600 displaced humans from Iraq, 671,579 from Syria, 14,457 from Yemen, 793 from Somalia and 6,146 from Sudan. That’s close to 1/10th of the population of the entire country. It’s hard to even comprehend. “7 Hills” doesn’t focus on the wider refugee crisis, but instead narrows the scope to a skate park in Jordan’s biggest city and capitol, Amman. “Jordan is like the Switzerland of the Middle East,” says Locke. “Wars are going on all around them, in Iraq, Gaza, Syria… but they maintain peace. Compared to Palestine, Jordan is much more mellow. Amman is vibrant, with lots of tourists. They have Petra and Roman ruins to visit. I always tell people that if you’d like to go to the Middle East, start with Amman. It’s a great way to experience the Arabic culture.” The scenes at the 7 Hills skate park are so colorful and vibrant that it’s easy to see why Locke fell in love with the place. “The initial idea was to make a short five- to 10-minute piece about the 7 Hills

Man vs. Wild, Elk Lake Edition

Local man roughs winters at Elk Lake in an isolated, handmade cabin

Cayla Clark

B

efore taking the snowcat trip up to Elk Lake, my mind was clouded with the stress of day-to-day life. When would I have time to do laundry? Did I remember to pay my gas bill? The 45-minute drive through the wilderness quickly brought me back down to size. The snowy vastness reminded me how small my problems really were. Spending the afternoon with Mark Thompson, a lifelong Bendite and true mountain man, reminded me how simple and fulfilling life can be when we shed the things we don’t need. Thompson, a self-proclaimed “outdoorsman,” first worked at Elk Lake Resort during the summer of 2014. The resort is an all-season destination nestled near Broken Top, South Sister and Mt. Bachelor. During the summer, the lake is open for a range of water-related activities. During the winter, visitors— who arrive via snowcat or snowmobile, since the Cascade Lakes Highway is closed—snowshoe, cross-country ski and snowmobile, resting at the Lodge restaurant for a meal and a cocktail in between excursions, or staying in one of the cabins. Thompson returned this summer to work in the Lodge’s kitchen. Instead of staying in the provided bunk-style staff housing, he built his own canvas tent. Camping on-site during the summer costs staff members next to nothing, and Thompson was able to save up enough to travel the world for two months in spring. “Summer at Elk Lake is lively, and there’s no shortage of things to do or people to meet,” Thompson shared. Had Thompson called it quits after summer, his story might be a little less interesting.

New at WinterFest: Outdoors Gear Polar Market now offers consignment Thirteen blankets and a wood-burning stove help keep Mark Thompson warm when his cabin is covered in snow.

But rather than return home for the winter, he decided to hand-build an insulated cabin in the dense woods. The cabin is small, cozy and minimalistic; think tiny house, but smaller, isolated and completely covered in snow. “We got 5 feet of snow in four days,” he said. “Over Christmas break my wood-burning stove broke… it was -8 degrees at the time. The Lodge is open over the holidays, so I couldn’t go anywhere. It was broken for 10 days.” The stove weighs over 300 pounds, and it took three grown men to drag it inside. He scored the stove for $175 on Craigslist, but it wasn’t the costliest feature of the cabin. “The insulation cost me about $400,” said Thompson. “The entire cabin cost me $1,500 when all was said and done. Things like tape and screws, those were the most expensive.” But considering that employees don’t pay rent in the winter and he has no bills (thanks to no electricity and no running water), the setup is definitely cost efficient. Cayla Clark

Combating loneliness can be hard for Mark Thompson, but he keeps himself occupied by exploring and appreciating the tranquility of Elk Lake in the wintertime. Shown here, at left, is Thompson's canvas-covered cabin. At right, his snow-covered woodpile.

But is living alone in the middle of nowhere worth the freedom to travel for two months out of the year? For Thompson, the answer is usually “yes.” “The most difficult part of living at Elk Lake during the winter is the isolation, and trying to combat the loneliness. I work for four days and I’m off for three, Monday through Wednesday. If no one is at the lodge during my ‘weekend,’ I know I’m the only human being for 40 miles. I have to be mindful of the situations I put myself in, you know, self-preservation is a big thing. If I need help, no one’s coming.”  Thompson’s love of the outdoors helps keep him occupied. “I hike a lot by myself. When the snow’s good I’ll splitboard around. I put on my snowshoes and go exploring, and I’m happy. The tranquility and serenity is unreal.” Thompson takes a trip or two to town when he needs more food and supplies, though that isn’t always possible in the harsh winter conditions. He hasn’t found himself desperate enough to hunt squirrels… not yet, at least. “I’ll track animals, just chase them around when I find them. I spend a lot of time observing and appreciating wildlife. There’s a pair of mated Bald Eagles that only come through in the winter, and we’ve got a fox on property that I track. Seeing a deer in the middle of the woods is a whole different experience than seeing one in town… they’re in their element, and you’re not. It instills a whole different level of respect.”  Thompson said he plans on disassembling his cabin over the summer and rebuilding it again. His advice to those thinking of following suit? “If you’re going to live here over the summer or the winter and you don’t like exploring, you’re wasting your time. And time is the biggest gift you can give to yourself… or to anyone else.”

The Polar Market at Oregon WinterFest is a hub for outdoor sporting gear— something many people in Central Oregon already can’t get enough of. And this year, the Polar Market is only getting better for those sporting-goods junkies. For the first time ever, TruNorthwest Exhange is hosting a consignment fair for people to come and drop off old gear and find something new. The consignment fair will be open throughout the weekend of WinterFest. This is an ideal place to come look for some discounted goods or hand over that one item that’s just been collecting dust. Once an item sells, TruNorthwest sends the seller a check. Consignment ensures old gear gets reused instead of just getting tossed. So for those on the hunt for something in particular, this may be the place to find it. TruNorthwest Consignment Fair

Creating opportunities, or just another tax for the rich? being low-income communities, containing more than 200 small businesses, being in a growing county, having a total employment of at least 1,500 and containing a portion of an existing Enterprise Zone (an impoverished area in which incentives such as tax concessions are offered to encourage business investment and provide jobs for the residents). Bend’s areas include the Historic District and Korpine area—the neighborhood that includes The Workhouse near Scott Street, south to Reed Market. A second opportunity zone includes Bend’s downtown and Central District. The third district is east of Highway 97 in the Larkspur neighborhood. Oregon’s House Revenue Committee has just proposed HB 4010, which would disconnect Oregon from the Opportunity Zone federal tax codes. Oregon taxpaying investors would no longer receive the tax benefits on their Oregon income tax for investments within the opportunity zones, but federal tax benefits would remain in place. As Daniel Hauser, tax policy analyst for the Oregon Center for Public Policy, wrote last week in testimony about the bill, “These subsidies are designed to cut the taxes of wealthy investors—not help struggling communities. The research on tax breaks like these often finds public resources were wasted subsidizing investments that would happen anyway, while displacing existing residents.” The big question remains: Are opportunity zones just another well-disguised tool for the wealthy to yet again sidestep paying reasonable income tax, or is there merit to the fact that investments will be made of social benefit? This is a highly complex issue and will be covered in an upcoming Take Me Home article, with an update on decisions regarding HB 4010.

T

he Federal Opportunity Zone program was created in 2017 through the Investing in Opportunity Act—part of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The goal is to stimulate economic development and job creation in economically distressed communities by encouraging long-term investments in low-income neighborhoods. Instead of relying on taxpayer dollars and government programs, the aim is to use private investments to conquer the task of revitalizing distressed neighborhoods. The dangling carrot for the individual investor is the ability to save on capital gains taxes when reinvesting in these areas. This program provides three different tax benefits for investing unrealized capital gains: temporary deferral of taxes, step-up in basis in order to exclude up to 15 percent of the original gain from taxation and a permanent exclusion of taxable income on new gains. On a state level, opportunity zones are established through a nomination and designation process. State governors had an opportunity to nominate up to 25% of their low-income qualifying Census areas for opportunity zone status. Working in collaboration with the state economic and development agency, Business Oregon, Gov. Kate Brown nominated 86 opportunity zones in Oregon. Oregon has been recognized nationally because of its process for nominating and creating opportunity zones. Smart Growth America dubbed Oregon as best-in-thenation at identifying zones, stating that the zones are positioned to bring positive social, environmental and economic returns. These zones will remain in place for 10 years after becoming designated. Opportunity zones consist of low-income neighborhoods that must meet specific criteria. Bend has three Census areas that met federal criteria—including

petitive in the business world. I’ve been rewarded for pursuing deals as relentlessly as highly successful men do. Yet, taking this approach in my dating life -- energetically pursuing men and confidently asking them out -- has been a bust. The men I go after seem to find my openness, excitement, and confidence off-putting. I keep hearing that I need to chill out and let men pursue me. This seems crazy. I shouldn’t have to act like a debutante, waiting for a man to ask me out. —Irritated In seduction, more is not more. You’ll be most attractive if you simply let who you are sparkle—a term that has more in common with “twinkle” than “immobilize men with the alien death ray of your personality.” As a heterosexual woman, pursuing romantic partners as ferociously as you’d pursue a business deal is especially counterproductive. Though we’re living in modern times, we’re stuck with an antique psychological operating system, calibrated to solve ancestral mating and survival problems. This means the psychology driving us is sometimes seriously mismatched with our modern world. For example, we now have reliable birth control, and even if that fails, children won’t die of starvation or be eaten by feral goats because the dude who fathered them “hit it ’n’ quit it.” Yet, we’ve still got our evolutionary legacy running the show. In vetting potential sex partners, women evolved to be more quality-conscious -- choosier, more “hard to get” -- while men evolved to take a more, shall we say, quantity-driven approach: “The more the merrier! Hey, next time, invite your sisters!” These differences in sexual choosiness emerge from what evolutionary biologist Robert Trivers explains as men’s and women’s differing levels of “parental investment.” The members of a species with the greatest possible costs from having sex -- like pregnancy and a screaming kid to feed -- evolved to be more selective in mate choice. Women’s emotions are their parental investment watchdogs, pushing them to make sure a man’s willing and able to stick around and provide resources. Though some women can take an emotionally Teflon approach to casual sex, anthropologist John Marshall Townsend finds that for many, hooking up comes with some emotional reflux— even when a woman knows a one-nighter is

all she wants from a guy. She’ll boot some himbo out of bed only to get all angsty afterward, worrying that the guy she wants nothing more from doesn’t want anything more from her. These differences in male and female mating selectivity showed up in a big way in a recent study looking at heterosexual Tinder users. Belgian econ doctoral candidate Brecht Neyt calculated the percentage of profiles men and women gave “super likes” to -a function on Tinder as of 2015. For those uninitiated in Tinder-ese, swiping right “likes” another user, but they will be none the wiser unless they, too, swipe right on you. SwipAmy Alkon ing up, however, is a “super like,” which triggers an automatic notification to the super-liked person. (Annoyingly, the researchers didn’t mention or take into account that super likes are generally seen as super uncool -- a sign of desperation -- leading many Tinderers to note in their profile, “If I super like you, I did it by accident.”) Neyt and his colleagues found that men super liked 61.9% of women’s profiles, while women super liked only 4.5% of the men’s. Their finding is a pretty dramatic reflection of men’s evolved quantity-over-quality default. In short: Stripperliciousness is nice, especially when packaged with kindness, intelligence, and killer cooking skills, but “Same species! Not in jail! Has internet access!” works, too. So, if you’re reasonably attractive and in a man’s age range, there’s a good chance he’ll go out with you simply because you ask -- though he may not be interested beyond a hookup. But let’s say he’s somebody who would be interested in you. Because men co-evolved with women, men expect women to be choosy, and they tend to devalue women who just tumble out of the sky into their lap. The best test for whether a man has real interest in you is seeing whether he’ll lay his ego on the line to ask you out. You aren’t without control in this approach; you can flirt with a guy you’re interested in to signal that you’re open to being pursued by him. Should things be different? Well, sure, in a more perfect mating universe. But if you want to be successful in this one, you should do what works -- which is driven by men’s evolved psychology. Though men will eventually take a selective approach when considering a woman as a long-term partner, many will have sex with anything this side of a pound of liver in the refrigerator (and sometimes that will just have to do).

ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian author

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Piscean poet Saul Williams wrote a meditation I hope you’ll consider experimenting with this Valentine season. It involves transforming mere kisses into SUBLIME KISSES. If you choose to be inspired by his thoughts, you’ll explore new sensations and meanings available through the act of joining your mouth to another’s. Ready? Here’s Saul: “Have you ever lost yourself in a kiss? I mean pure psychedelic inebriation. Not just lustful petting but transcendental metamorphosis, when you became aware that the greatness of this other being is breathing into you. Licking your mouth, like sealing a thousand fleshy envelopes filled with the essence of your passionate being, and then opened by the same mouth and delivered back to you, over and over again—the first kiss of the rest of your life.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Now that she’s in her late forties, Aries comedian and actress Tig Notaro is wiser about love. Her increased capacity for romantic happiness has developed in part because she’s been willing to change her attitudes. She says, “Instead of being someone who expects people to have all the strengths I think I need them to have, I resolved to try to become someone who focuses on the strengths they do have.” In accordance with this Valentine’s season’s astrological omens, Aries, I invite you to meditate on how you might cultivate more of that aptitude yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus artist Joan Miró loved to daub colored paint on canvases. He said he approached his work in the same way he made love: “a total embrace, without caution, prudence thrown to the winds, nothing held back.” In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to invoke a similar attitude with all the important things you do in the coming weeks. Summon the ardor and artistry of a creative lover for all-purpose use. Happy Valentine Daze, Taurus! GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In 1910, Gemini businessman Irving Seery was 20 years old. One evening he traveled to the Metropolitan Opera in New York City to see an opera starring the gorgeous and electrifying soprano singer Maria Jeritza. He fell in love instantly. For the next thirty-eight years he remained a bachelor as he nursed his desire to marry her. His devotion finally paid off. Jeritza married Seery in 1948. Dear Gemini, in 2020, I think you will be capable of a heroic feat of love that resembles Seery’s. Which of your yearnings might evoke such intensely passionate dedication? Happy Valentine Daze!

CANCER (June 21-July 22): I’ve been married twice, both times to the same woman. Our first time around, we were less than perfectly wise in the arts of relationship. After our divorce and during the few years we weren’t together, we each ripened into more graceful versions of ourselves; we developed greater intimacy skills. Our second marriage has been far more successful. Is there a comparable possibility in your life, Cancerian? A chance to enhance your ability to build satisfying togetherness? An opening to learn practical lessons from past romantic mistakes? Now is a favorable time to capitalize. Happy Valentine Daze!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In 1911, the famous Russian poet Anna Akhmatova and the famous Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani were in love with each other. Both were quite poor, though. They didn’t have much to spend on luxuries. In her memoir,

Akhmatova recalled the time they went on a date in the rain at the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris. Barely protected under a rickety umbrella, they amused each other by reciting the verse of Paul Verlaine, a poet they both loved. Isn’t that romantic? In the coming weeks, I recommend you experiment with comparable approaches to cultivating love. Get back to raw basics. Happy Valentine Daze!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): [Warning: Poetry

VOLUME 24 ISSUE 07 / FEBRUARY 13, 2020 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Derek Walcott had a perspective on love that I suspect might come in handy for you during this Valentine season. “Break a vase,” he wrote, “and the love that reassembles the fragments is stronger than that love which took its symmetry for granted when it was whole.” I urge you to meditate on how you could apply his counsel to your own love story, Aquarius. How might you remake your closest alliances into even better and brighter versions of themselves?

alert! If you prefer your horoscopes to be exclusively composed of practical, hyper-rational advice, stop reading now!] Happy Valentine Daze, Virgo! I hope there’s someone in your life to whom you can give a note like the one I’ll offer at the end of this oracle. If there’s not, I trust you will locate that person in the next six months. Feel free to alter the note as you see fit. Here it is. “When you and I are together, it’s as if we have been reborn into luckier lives; as if we can breathe deeper breaths that fill our bodies with richer sunlight; as if we see all of the world’s beauty that alone we were blind to; as if the secrets of our souls’ codes are no longer secret.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the course of your life, how many people and animals have truly loved you? Three? Seven? More? I invite you to try this Valentine experiment: Write down their names on a piece of paper. Spend a few minutes visualizing the specific qualities in you that they cherished, and how they expressed their love, and how you felt as you received their caring attention. Then send out a beam of gratitude to each of them. Honor them with sublime appreciation for having treasured your unique beauty. Amazingly enough, Libra, doing this exercise will magnetize you to further outpourings of love in the coming weeks. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): [Warning: Poetry alert! If you prefer your horoscopes to be exclusively composed of practical, hyper-rational advice, stop reading now!] Happy Valentine Daze, Scorpio! I invite you to copy the following passage and offer it to a person who is receptive to deepening their connection with you. “Your healing eyes bless the winter jasmine flowers that the breeze blew into the misty creek. Your welcoming prayers celebrate the rhythmic light of the mud-loving cypress trees. Your fresh dreams replenish the eternal salt that nourishes our beloved song of songs. With your melodic breath, you pour all these not-yet-remembered joys into my body.” (This lyrical message is a blend of my words with those of Scorpio poet Odysseus Elytis.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The poet Virgil, a renowned author in ancient Rome, wrote three epic poems that are still in print today. His second was a masterpiece called the Georgics. It took him seven years to write, even though it was only 2,740 lines long. So on average he wrote a little over one line per day. I hope you’ll use him as inspiration as you toil over your own labors of love in the coming weeks and months. There’ll be no need to rush. In fact, the final outcomes will be better if you do them slowly. Be especially diligent and deliberate in all matters involving intimacy and collaboration and togetherness.

... “Draft,” or maybe a “Cold One.” Some refer to it as “Brewski,” “Suds,” or “Cerveza.” Whether you reach for an “Oat Soda,” a “Barley Pop,” or just a regular old “Beer” — most can agree that Central Oregon is a special place for that curious concoction that makes everything better. Advertise in the Source Weekly’s Beer Issue and give readers the haps on your taps!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): [Warning: Poetry alert! If you prefer your horoscopes to be exclusively composed of practical, hyper-rational advice, stop reading now!] Happy Valentine Daze, Capricorn! I invite you to copy the following passage and offer it to a person who is ready to explore a more deeply lyrical connection with you. “I yearn to earn the right to your whispered laugh, your confident caress, your inscrutable dance. Amused and curious, I wander where moon meets dawn, inhaling the sweet mist in quest of your questions. I study the joy that my imagination of you has awakened. All the maps are useless, and I like them that way. I’m guided by my nervous excitement to know you deeper. Onward toward the ever-fresh truth of your mysterious rhythms!”

Judging a high-profile cannabis competition wasn’t what I expected By Josh Jardine Part 2 in a series highlighting this writer’s experience as a judge in a high-profile cannabis competition.

A

s I began to detail in an article last month, I was assigned “vape cartridges” as my product to review as a judge for the High Times Oregon Cannabis Cup. Normally, that would have been great. But in light of what was the still-evolving “e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury” (EVALI) crisis, I had concerns. While federal investigators are still confirming the cause of the illness, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have both found a link between Vitamin E acetate and EVALI. Less than a month prior to picking up my judge’s kit for the High Times event, state regulators had announced that the suspected culprit (Vitamin E acetate) wasn’t a banned “undisclosed agent,” and may have been present in some Oregon vape cartridges. As Oregon Liquor Control Commission Executive Director Steve Marks said, “My worry is that some of these folks may have gone around and put Vitamin E in their products that we are unaware of... If it’s in our products, it’s out there and we don’t have a clear way to know which ones it may or may not be in.” At the same time, the Oregon Health Authority reported that one of the EVALI victims who had died reportedly purchased THC carts from at least one licensed Oregon dispensary.  The judge’s kit I received contained 10 cartridges, filled with .5 to 1 gram of oil, all packaged as if ready for sale. This was in no way the vastly preferred “blind judging” style, wherein all identifying details about producer, product name, etc. are removed, so a judge is not influenced by any existing biases, good or bad.  I asked budtenders at the dispensary where I picked up my kit if any of the carts contained Vitamin E. They were simply handling the distribution of the kits, so they didn’t know. The kit had some brands I knew, but there were more that I had never tried, seen or even heard of.  A large dispensary-owning friend who had compiled a lengthy list of “good carts,” with verified ingredients and producers, looked at my carts to determine if they were listed. “Wow. We actually carry none of these brands,” he said, adding that there

was one brand he had never even heard of, either. We shall call it “Brand X.” I emailed HT and asked, “I’m writing to get confirmation that none of these carts contain the thickening agent Vitamin E acetate.” I didn’t get a reply, so I asked again through the website used to submit my judge’s ballots. Again, no reply. I began reaching out directly to producers to ask if they used Vitamin E. I received confirmation from all they Josh Jardine did not—but couldn’t find any info for “Brand X.” My dispensary friend said the brand name didn’t exist in METRC, the state’s cannabis products tracking system, but by using the license number, he determined the legal business name and phone number. Multiple calls to the business went unanswered. On Oct. 24, I emailed HT again and asked if they could provide a contact at Brand X to “confirm it was free of Vitamin E,” resulting in this telling exchange: HT: Everything is OLCC certified and passes the test in METRC.  Me: That wasn’t the question, but thanks. HT: We don’t give our competitor info. Thanks. Well, no need to “give it out,” it’s all on the boxes the carts are in, save for “Brand X.” I was astounded at the lack of awareness or concern HT was showing toward the health and safety of their judges.  The owner of the Cup’s venue offered to guest list me, and I arrived to find a scattering of booths inside, and a few attendees milling about. I recognized a half-dozen plus, all of whom were associated with brands entered into the Cup. I stepped outside into the attached fenced gravel yard, to a crowd which were seemingly mostly comprised of other contestants.  The MC announced several times how consumption of any kind, including vaping, was strictly forbidden, and could result in your expulsion. Tickets are $80+ to not smoke. Cool. Winners were announced, the crowd emptied out and the headliner played to a smaller crowd than they deserved.  Those who won were worthy of the honors, and I hope it boosts sales. But as a judge and attendee, this came off as a crass cash grab, and embodied none of the spirit of the original Cups. High Times has some great writers—but do yourself a favor: Skip the Cup.
