OPINION Prioritizing People Over Cars Won’t Happen Overnight, But It’s Worth the Effort




Open Daily for You and Your Pets Healthy Adventures Await!





t’s an actual scene readers may easily imagine: Two families come to visit Bend during the busy July 4 weekend, a gaggle of bikes in tow, planning to ride the Deschutes River Trail. They load up their kids and snacks and gear and begin to plan a cycling route from the place they’re staying on the east side—only to find, with so many kids along for this ride, several sketchy street crossings mean this 1-mile trip to reach the Deschutes River Trail is beyond their comfort level. Back in the car they go, adding theirs to the many clamoring for parking in the densest part of tourist Bend. How many people like this come to Bend, expecting to enjoy its “bike town” reputation, only to find the streets not safe enough to ride with their kids? Having just returned from the bike mecca of Amsterdam ourselves and coming home to find this scene in our own backyard, it can be overwhelming and frustrating to know how far we have yet to go to see Bend be the type of place where it’s safe and fun to get a kid out for a bike commute. Seeing Amsterdam’s protected bike lanes and merry families getting everywhere on two wheels, it can feel like we’re begging for scraps with the local efforts to make or improve up to three safe crossings over (or under) the railroad tracks and the Bend Parkway to connect east and west. Yet, where there’s a will there’s a way. Amsterdam, too, was once a city dominated by cars, and it took 40 years of urban planning and public input to transform it into the city it is today, where cars must yield to bikes and where there are now more bikes than people. It didn’t happen overnight, and it won’t here, either. There, planners adopted an “if you build it they will come” philosophy, understanding over time that even those who don’t presently desire to bike to work or school tend to move that direction when the infrastructure to do so is in place—protected bike lanes being a key piece of the puzzle. In a 13-year study published in 2019 by teams at the University of Denver and the University of New Mexico, researchers found that separated and protected bike lanes were the keys to reducing deaths for all users—including cars—by 44 percent. On top of that, with the protected and separated bike lanes came an increase in cyclists, the study found. City leaders are hip to this, too, and while it’s slow going, a few key projects will pave the way, ideally, for more public enthusiasm around these concepts. The City of Bend has just wrapped up its online open house for the Midtown Pedestrian and Bicycle Crossings Feasibility Study, where it asked the public to weigh in on their favorite concepts among several offered for crossings at Greenwood Avenue, Franklin Avenue and a proposed new bridge crossing at Hawthorne Avenue. The City has several proposed concepts for each of these crossings, several with protected lanes for bikes. We’d like to see all three crossings built out with lanes separating bikes from cars, and with pedestrians, too, having ample room to feel safe. But one stands out as offering not just that level of protection, but also a showpiece that can get people talking: the Hawthorne Bridge crossing. While three concepts for the bridge are afoot, the two that allow people to pedal, wheelchair or walk across without the use of an elevator or stairs appear most attractive in terms of ease of use. Whichever of the three might happen to go forward, building a bridge dedicated to everyone outside of a car would be a statement: Bend prioritizes multi-modal transportation. With elegant design and/or by incorporating artistic elements, it could also dazzle those whizzing underneath it on the Parkway, further inciting conversation. Because public support has been so crucial in making other cities into the bike meccas they are today, residents who care about seeing a safer transportation system for Bend should continue to weigh in as these projects move from ideas to reality. With more public support, three crossings in the center of town can be only the beginning. Learn more about the Midtown Crossings project: city-projects/what-s-being-built/midtown-ped-bike-crossings

REALLY? Went for a nice kayak paddle this morning from Colorado St. to Reed Market and saw Bend’s newest disgusting eyesore: the row of probably 50 porta-potties lining the riparian area at the Hayden Homes Amphitheater. I understand they don’t like folks viewing or listening to concerts either on the river or in the Old Mill, but this destroys the natural beauty of this area and is bound to hurt tourism. If Hayden can’t afford to build permanent toilet facilities that fit into the environs, they don’t need to be in charge of this venue! I’d sure like to know who approved this. —Robert Lee

CONCERT PHONE BAN IS A 21ST CENTURY NECESSITY RE: STUCK OUTSIDE WITH A MOBILE WITH THE MILLENNIAL BLUES AGAIN, FEATURE 6/23 The last concert I went to I watched it via the 30 cell phone screens in front of me. Who in their right mind thinks they need a five minute video of a song

they like, that will inevitably never be watched, because it’s lost in a sea of the other multiple minute long videos from the concert. The concert phone ban isn’t ableist, it’s a necessity for everyone to actually enjoy the show. We’ve grown way too accustomed to immediate communication. For the entire span of humankind, up until 15 years ago, we had no way of reaching someone the second we needed to, let alone have everyone in the audience record the entirety of the concert. Have alternate plans in place if something goes wrong at home, like 911, a beeper (if they still exist), or another outlet for help. Sure, it’s sad we’ve had to come to phone bans but what’s even more sad is paying $100 for a ticket to have 30 screens in front of you that your eyes so easily gravitate towards. Long live the ban! —Chris Devlin

TINA KOTEK FOR OREGON Tina Kotek is the ONLY candidate running for Governor that we can trust to protect reproductive rights. As House Speaker, Tina led the way to pass the nation’s strongest abortion law ensuring all Oregonians, no matter how much money they make or where they live, can access reproductive health care – including abortion, without obstacles. And now that SCOTUS has overturned Roe v. Wade, we have Tina to thank for having the foresight to step up and protect our rights. All leading reproductive rights organizations stand with Tina and have endorsed her as our next Governor because Tina is Oregon’s leading champion for defending reproductive freedom. Christine Drazan promises to veto any legislation to protect/expand safe abortion access. And as for Betsy Johnson, she claims to be pro-choice but meanwhile she’s supported, and even donated

to, anti-choice Republicans like Cliff Bentz who was the only member of the Oregon delegation to vote against protecting abortion access in Congress. Betsy is always trying to have it both ways, we can’t trust her to fight for us. TINA IS FIGHTING FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR OREGON: • Reproductive Rights • Housing & Homelessness • Environmental Protection • Mental Health & Recovery • Economic Opportunity • Education & Childcare • Gun Violence Prevention Vote & Support Tina Kotek! —Anna Maher

Next-door neighbor Idaho's ban on abortions explained

Wyden Visits Bend Planned Parenthood WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / JULY 07, 2022 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE


The Senator laid out his legislative priorities after the Supreme Court overturned federal abortion protections By Jack Harvel

Jack Harvel

The Idaho legislature passed a bill in 2020 that criminalizes doctors performing abortion, punishable by up to two years in prison. Breaking the law would result in a six-month suspension of the practitioner's medical license on the first offense and a permanent suspension on the second. The only exceptions are if a pregnancy would save the life of the parent, or if it’s the result of rape or incest that’s reported to the police — who would need to provide a police report to the physician. The exceptions have been criticized by prochoice groups who say not all rapes are prosecuted and police don’t hand over police reports during ongoing investigations. Idaho’s Supreme Court will consider pausing the law in early August so it can hear two cases challenging the law. The law states the ban on nearly all abortions would go into effect 30 days after a Supreme Court decision. The June 24 decision that overturned Roe isn’t the official judgement, which is usually issued about a month after opinions are issued, so the ban wouldn’t go into effect until August. Idaho also enacted a Texas-like abortion law that gives people the ability to file civil lawsuits against medical performers who perform an abortion after fetal cardiac activity can be detected, which is usually around six weeks.

Sen. Ron Wyden spoke to about 60 people at Bend’s Planned Parenthood Clinic on July 2.


regon Sen. Ron Wyden visited Bend’s Planned Parenthood clinic on July 2, Oregon’s easternmost abortion clinic and on the front lines of the now state-by-state approach to abortion laws. The Bend clinic is expecting an influx of out-of-state patients, including those from neighboring Idaho, after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood, the two cases that federally protected women’s right to have an abortion. Access to abortion is protected in Oregon’s constitution, but the state is likely to be impacted by the decision. The lack of clinics in eastern Oregon is expected to decrease access to abortion in the region by 35%, and Bend’s clinic could be seeing over two times as many patients as it’s used to, according to studies by the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive health research and policy organization. Wyden said the overturning of Roe is a clear and present danger to women and warned of efforts to criminalize abortion nationwide. “The former Vice President Mike Pence said that he would not rest until there was a national ban on abortion, which would mean that Oregon’s law would be set aside. We’re here to say today, we’re not going to rest either, until abortion is safe and legal and available to women everywhere,” Wyden said. Wyden’s highest short-term priorities are in increasing access to mifepristone and misoprostol— drugs that induce an abortion, along with protecting

personal data that could be used against people who get an abortion. President Joe Biden ordered health officials to make mifepristone more accessible through the mail, but the Food and Drug Administration doesn’t allow it to be sent without a doctor’s examination, despite it being safer than Tylenol. The FDA also requires pharmacy FDA certification for any pharmacy that seeks to carry the pills, which account for more than half of abortions performed in the U.S. U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland said that states don’t have the right to criminalize the pills, even while Louisiana has already made mailing abortion pills punishable by up to five years in prison and a $50,000 fine. The striking down of Roe led many to fear that online personal data could be used to prosecute women who seek an out-of-state or DIY abortion. Personal data has been used over the past two decades on women who didn’t adhere to a state’s limitations on abortions. “We’re talking about information about Plan B and Plan C, we’re talking about location tracking, which can be hugely consequential to the well being of women,” Wyden said. “My legislation, the bill, ‘My Body, My Data,’ is also essential to make sure that your personal private data that you share with apps, for example like period trackers, can’t be taken away from you.” The apps are meant to anonymize users, but Wyden said there are loopholes he hopes to close. He also said he’s going to leverage his position as Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance and his

membership in the Budget Committee to secure more funding for Planned Parenthood programs. The Hyde Amendment barrs the use of federal funds on abortions unless the parent’s life is in danger, or if the pregnancy is a result of incest or rape — though 17 states do allow federal Medicaid dollars to be used for abortion. Planned Parenthood receives about 40% of its funding through the federal government, including Medicaid reimbursements, but use of those funds is for non-abortion services like distributing birth control, cancer screenings and STD testing — which Planned Parenthood says is the overwhelming majority of services it provides. Though Bend’s clinic is expecting an uptick in patients, it’s unclear by how much, and what services will be impacted. “I don’t know that we can fully prepare because we don’t know exactly what it’s going to look like, but we are prepared, we’re ready to help everybody that’s in our community that needs those services and also assist people that are traveling far away,” said Joanna Dennis-Cook, the Bend Health Center manager. “We’ve continued to expand our telehealth services including medication abortion, where the medications can be mailed to you. This is critical to help you and folks that are in rural places of Oregon, where it can be an extreme hardship to travel.” When asked about the theoretical feasibility and its possibility of getting past the current House and Senate, Wyden urged people to organize at a grassroots level to make change and to vote in the next election.


The Fourth and Fire

Bend and Redmond had one of the least-fiery Fourth of July’s in memory By Jack Harvel

Oregon’s drought conditions improved slightly, but it still looks bleak for much of Central Oregon. Jack Harvel

two after midnight on July 5. The largest of those fires came from lightning storms over the weekend. Jefferson County is also at a greater risk of wildfire, according to an interactive fire-risk map that the Oregon Department of Forestry and Oregon State University unveiled on June 30. The map is meant to identify areas that could be subject to defensible space regulations. “It’s incredibly exciting to see Oregon taking major steps in the right direction in preventing catastrophic wildfire. After the past two fire seasons, the need to modernize the way we prepare for, and fight wildfire was tragically evident,” said Bend Fire Deputy Operations Chief and Oregon Fire Chiefs Association President Bill Boos in a statement.

“It’s incredibly exciting to see Oregon taking major steps in the right direction in preventing catastrophic wildfire. After the past two fire seasons, the need to modernize the way we prepare for, and fight wildfire was tragically evident.” Bend received fewer calls for service than it does on an average day for the first time since at least 2006.


Monkeypox in Oregon

Three presumptive cases of Monkeypox have been detected in Oregon By Jack Harvel


onkeypox, a viral disease that causes fever, headaches and rashes, has been discovered in Oregon. The Oregon Health Authority reported its first known case in mid-June, and on July 1 Lane County reported two presumed cases of monkeypox. Lane County Public Health spokesperson Jason Davis told KOIN he’s expecting a few more cases in the county. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has discovered monkeypox in 33 states since it first started spreading in Europe and the United States in May. The disease is endemic in parts of Africa and infections usually stem from animal bites. “hMPXV [monkeypox] does not spread easily between people, so the risk to other people is generally very low,” said Dr. Richard Leman, public health physician with OHA. “Unlike COVID-19, which can be spread easily from person to person through the air over several feet of space, hMPXV spreads between people primarily through direct contact with infectious sores, scabs, or body fluids. Less commonly, it can be spread by respiratory secretions during prolonged face-to-face contact.”

It’s not the first time monkeypox found its way to the U.S. In 2003 47 confirmed cases of monkeypox occurred in six midwestern states. The CDC tied that outbreak to an import of animals from Ghana that spread the illness to prairie dogs. The latest outbreak is the widest spread, with 564 cases, according to the CDC. Thankfully the disease is rarely fatal and there have been no reported deaths from the disease. The vaccine JYNNEOS protects against monkeypox and smallpox, and the Department of Health and Human Services is expanding access to at-risk populations. “Within days of the first confirmed case of monkeypox in the United States, we quickly began deploying vaccines and treatment to help protect the American public and limit the spread of the virus,” said HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra in a statement. “While monkeypox poses minimal risk to most Americans, we are doing everything we can to offer vaccines to those at high-risk of contracting the virus. This new strategy allows us to maximize the supply of currently available vaccines and reach those who are most vulnerable to the current outbreak.”

ourth of July is firefighters’ busiest night of the year thanks to fires started by fireworks, injuries from fireworks and an increase in drunk driving. In Central Oregon it’s a heightened problem with a majority of Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson Counties facing varying levels of drought. Fearing sparks, the Bend City Council voted to permanently ban fireworks in October 2021 after temporarily banning them earlier in the year. Redmond also enacted a 60-day ban on fireworks just before the Fourth in 2021 but opted not to this year. The result seems to have worked in Bend, where only one fireworks-caused fire occurred this year and none on July Fourth. Overall, Bend Fire and Rescue received 30 calls for service on July Fourth. On a typical day it gets 35. It’s the lowest number of calls for service on July Fourth since at least 2006. Bend Fire and Rescue’s busiest Fourth of July happened in 2018 when there were 59 calls for service, 12 of which were for fire. It could also just be luck; Redmond sans ban didn’t have a single fire on July Fourth, according to Redmond Fire and Rescue. It did, however, respond to 21 calls mostly for medical issues. Crook County only had two reported fires from July 1-5. Other areas aren’t so lucky; Jefferson County Fire and EMS reported six fires over the Fourth of July weekend, and

Estamos aquí para decir que tampoco vamos a descansar hasta que el aborto sea seguro y legal y accesible para las mujeres en todas partes,” dijo Wyden. Las prioridades más importantes a corto plazo de Wyden son aumentar el acceso a mifepristone y misoprostol, medicamentos que inducen un aborto, además de proteger los datos personales que podrían usarse en contra de las personas que tuvieron un aborto. El Presidente Joe Biden (President Joe Biden) ordenó a las autoridades de salud hacer que mifepristone se más accesible por correo, pero las Administración de Fármacos y Alimentos (FDA por sus siglas en inglés) no permite que se envíe sin una evaluación médica a pesar de ser más seguro que Tylenol. También la FDA requiere que la farmacia que vaya a surtir el medicamento sea acreditada por la FDA, lo cual representa más de la mitad de los abortos hechos en los Estados Unidos. El Fiscal General de los Estados Unidos Merrick Garland dijo que los estados no tienen el derecho de penalizar el uso de las píldoras, incluso cuando Luisiana

Planned Perenthood recibe cerca del 40% de sus fondos por medio del gobierno federal, incluyendo el rembolso de Medicaid, pero el uso de esos fondos es para servicios no relacionados al aborto, como la distribución de anticonceptivos, evaluaciones para la detección del cáncer y pruebas de enfermedades transmitidas sexualmente, lo cual involucra la mayor parte de sus servicios que ofrece Planned Parenthood. Aunque la clínica de Bend espera un aumento en pacientes, no tiene claro que tanto y que servicios se verán afectados. “No sé si nos podemos preparar completamente porque no sabemos con exactitud cómo se presentarán las cosas, pero estamos preparados, estamos listos para ayudar a toda persona que esté en nuestra comunidad la cual necesita servicios de atención y también podemos atender a personas que vienen de lejos,” dijo Joanna Dennis-Cook, Gerente del Centro de Salud de Bend. “Hemos seguido ampliando los servicios de Telehealth, incluso servicios de aborto por medicamento, en donde los medicamentos pueden ser enviado por correo. Esto es un punto crítico para ayudarle a usted y a personas de comunidades rurales en Oregón, en donde los viajes diarios son extremadamente difíciles de hacer”.

l 2 de julio, el senador Ron Wyden visitó la clínica de Planned Parenthood de Bend, la clínica donde se ofrecen servicios de aborto, localizada más al este de Oregon y en la primera línea con relación al enfoque por estados ante las leyes de aborto. La clínica de Bend espera un flujo de pacientes de otros estados, incluso del estado vecino de Idaho, luego que la Corte Suprema anulara Roe v. Wade y Wade y Case v. Planned Parenthood, los dos casos que protegían federalmente el derecho de las mujeres para tener un aborto. El acceso al aborto está protegido en la constitución de Oregón, pero es probable que el estado se vea afectado por la decisión. Se espera que la falta de clínicas en el este de Oregón disminuya el acceso al aborto en la región por un 35% y la clínica de Bend podría atender a más del doble de pacientes de lo que solía atender, de acuerdo estudios de Guttmacher Institute, una investigación de salud reproductiva y organización de políticas. Wyden dijo que la anulación de Rode es un claro y presente peligro para las mujeres y advirtió sobre los esfuerzos de penalizar el aborto a nivel nacional. “El ex vicepresidente Mike Pence dijo que no descansará hasta que haya

La sorprendente derrota de Roe hizo que muchos temieran que la información personal (Personal data) en línea pudiera usarse para enjuiciar a las mujeres que buscan llevar a cabo un aborto fuera del estado o que lleven a cabo un aborto por sí mismas. Datos personales han sido utilizados durante las dos últimas décadas en relación a las mujeres que no se apegaron a las limitaciones del estado ante el aborto. Estamos hablando de la Información sobre el Plan B y el Plan C, estamos hablando acerca del rastreo de la ubicación, lo cual puede tener muchas consecuencias para el bienestar de las mujeres,” dijo Wyden. “Mi reglamentación, el proyecto de ley, ‘Mi cuerpo, Mis Datos,’ también es esencial para garantizar que sus datos personales y privados que comparte no puedan arrebatarséles. Las aplicaciones están destinadas a mantener a los usuarios en el anonimato, pero Wyden dijo qué hay vacíos que espera cerrar. También dijo que va a aprovechar su puesto como Presidente del Comité de Finanzas del Senado de los Estados Unidos y su membresía en el Comité de Presupuesto para asegurar más fondos para los programas de Planned Parenthood.

With the ongoing drought, growing population and piping of canals, Central Oregonians are increasingly seeing their wells go dry. Many may be out of luck. By Hanna Merzbach


t was early June when Mari V. went to do a load of laundry one morning and found the machine had no water. Then, she turned on the faucet — again, no water. Mari, who owns and lives at a horse farm near Tumalo, typically relies on a 545-feet-deep well to give her horses water and meet household needs. That is, until last month. When a pump company came to investigate, “There was only about 5 inches of mucky water at the bottom,” recalled Mari, who asked to omit her last name and business name in case she someday wants to sell the property. Mari was left to join the growing number of rural Central Oregonians scrambling to deepen their wells or find a new water source altogether, with many drilling companies months out from relief and drilling

costing tens of thousands of dollars. This comes as— despite the wet spring—the region enters its second summer of extreme drought, and farmers and rural residents are experiencing water shortages in ways people living within city limits don’t see. The region has experienced some level of drought conditions for the last 20 years, and although precipitation levels have been high compared to previous years, that’s barely making a dent. According to Chrissy Lucas, a groundwater protection specialist at Oregon State University, “You can’t make up for all of that drought and the lack of rain in one or two years.” Well owners in Central Oregon aren’t alone: Across the world, millions of wells are expected to run dry, as groundwater is depleted from overpumping and drier climates.

“So especially in areas like Central Oregon, we’re pumping it out faster than it’s being able to naturally recharge itself with the rainfall,” —CHRISSY LUCAS

GROUNDWATER IN DECLINE Groundwater is a critical resource in Central Oregon. While most farmers in the region rely on surface water for irrigation, residents and businesses outside municipal areas largely depend on private wells to meet their water needs. This groundwater is part of an aquifer, which flows like an underground river deep below Earth’s surface. Every year, the snowfall from the Cascade Mountains replenishes the aquifer, as spring snowmelt seeps into the porous volcanic rock. But, according to the latest study from the U.S. Geological Survey, between 1997 and 2008, groundwater levels in the central part of the Upper Deschutes Basin—from Sisters to Powell Butte— declined as much as 14 feet. Climate conditions and the region’s ongoing drought account for much of this decline: A smaller snowpack means less water flows into the aquifer. Climate, however, can’t explain all the water declines throughout the basin. Experts point to the piping of irrigation canals as another reason for groundwater decline. For a long time, up to 50% of water from canals seeped into the ground before it reached farms,


potentially keeping the aquifers artificially high, according to the Oregon Water Resource Department’s watermaster for the region, Jeremy Giffin, who’s charged with regulating and distributing water from the state. In order to make irrigation systems more efficient, piping or lining canals is now a priority throughout Central Oregon. And while this may be good for farmers, groundwater is feeling the effects. “Maybe we filled up the aquifer with a pillow of water from all the canal leaking,” Giffin said. “And now that we’re starting to pipe canals and conserve water, that’s subsiding down to a more natural level.” On top of this, experts also speculate that, as the population grows, over-pumping is lowering the water table. The population in Deschutes County has expanded rapidly, and with that comes a reliance on groundwater to satisfy the increased demand for water. “So especially in areas like Central Oregon, we’re pumping it out faster than it’s being able to naturally recharge itself with the rainfall,” Lucas, with OSU, said. “The land itself doesn’t have the carrying capacity for the number of people that are living there and using the resources.” This is a big reason critics are pushing back against developments like Thornburgh, a proposed resort near Cline Butte that was permitted in 2013 to use up to 6 million gallons of groundwater a day. This is more than 50 times what the average Bend water customer used in the entire year of 2021, according to public records. Thornburgh’s water permit is currently in legal limbo, as regulators consider if the plan still makes sense in the current climate. The Department of State Lands is currently considering whether to approve the sale of a piece of additional land for the resort, and doesn’t expect a decision till early August at the earliest. The public comment period has been extended until July 29, and hundreds of residents have already spoken out against the sale. Many worry the resort will take away from their already declining water supply and undersupply a nearby creek. As someone who’s experienced groundwater shortages firsthand, Mari said it’s “very frustrating” hearing about new resorts like this. Currently, anyone who wants a well must apply for a permit, but there are no state regulations on where they can be dug. Wells are approved even in areas where the groundwater is over-appropriated or the impact to the aquifer is unknown. The Oregon Water Resources Commission is currently considering an approach that would deny permits for new wells in places where groundwater is over-appropriated and where data is lacking, but the commission wouldn’t vote to adopt the new rules until 2023 at the earliest. Meanwhile, residents will continue to suffer from potentially overused aquifers. Giffin said, as of May 18, he’d received 33 complaints of wells drying up this year in the Upper Deschutes Basin, though the true number is likely many times higher. The number of complaints took off in the last two years, he said, with areas like Redmond particularly hard-hit and the wave of groundwater dissipating the further east you go. “We’ve been blessed with ample supply of water for a long time in this basin for being a high desert,” Giffin said, but that’s changing. “[Water’s] a precious resource and we’re going to have to really learn to conserve it and use what we have.”

DIGGING THE WAY OUT Carol Hocker, a Redmond School District employee, has lived with her family on a 2.25-acre lot in northwest Redmond since 1995. Until February, a 250-foot well had been a steady source of water for her family and two neighboring families. That was until they noticed air bubbles in the water. Sure enough, the well was going dry. Much like trying to drink the last sip of a milkshake with a straw, the pump was having a hard time slurping up the last bits of water. Since the well wasn’t originally registered with the state, the families had to dig an entirely new one, and it wasn’t until late June that Abbas Well Drilling & Pump Service could drill a new well — a nearly six-month wait. In the last couple years, popular local drilling companies, such as Abbas and Aiken Well Drilling have seen an uptick in inquiries across Central Oregon. One employee at Aiken said the company is receiving 10 to 20 calls a week about wells drying up — the highest number they’ve seen. So, for many families like Hocker’s, it’s been a waiting game, and meanwhile, every day has felt like camping, Hocker said. Her family has been washing their clothes elsewhere and taking short showers. None of the families using the well have watered their lawns or planted gardens for fear of running out of water. “Every day we turn the water on and it’s spitting and spurting, we’re like, 'OK, is this the day it’s going to stop?’ she said in mid-June. “We’re always worried it’s going to stop today — because it could.” Luckily for those families, when the drilling company came in late June, they found water quickly, just 350 feet down — which is relatively shallow in a region where some wells are 800 feet deep. Drilling companies typically charge by the foot, and a new well — with pumps — can add up to an average of $50,000, according to Andy High, the owner of Thompson Pump & Irrigation. This is a steep price for families, especially those already living on the edge. “If you’re rural and you’re [living on a] fixed income or you’re just trying to make it, you don’t have $50,000 sitting around to throw at a new well,” High said. For small businesses, digging a new well is especially financially taxing. Mari, who owns the Tumalo horse farm, has been paying for water to be delivered to her property every four days. She has a cistern to store this water and keep meeting basic needs, but these deliveries add up to nearly $1,500 a month. “We’re a small business,” she said. “It’s a big expense.” But that’ll soon come to an end. The state finally approved Mari to dig deeper, and a drilling company was able to start on June 29. Still, the drillers don’t know how deep they’ll have to go, and that’s stressful for Mari. “I think we’ll survive it,” she said. “But I do worry what the long-term look for Bend will be if growth continues. There’s only so much water.” —This story is the first part of a series exploring water shortages in Central Oregon. The next installment will explore how some farmers in the high desert are feeling the effects of the drought more than others.

“Every day we turn the water on and it’s spitting and spurting, we’re like, 'OK, is this the day it’s going to stop?’” —CAROL HOCKER

RESOURCES FOR WELL OWNERS What to do if your well dries up

Get a backup water storage tank, such as a cistern. According to Chrissy Lucas, with OSU, even well owners who aren’t experiencing water shortages should have a back-up tank in case of emergencies. See for more information for well owners. Contact a licensed well constructor or pump installer to access the well, if you are experiencing trouble with your water supply. Oftentimes, wells get clogged due to a lack of maintenance and haven’t actually gone dry. If you do need to dig deeper or construct a new well, find a licensed well constructor: Locate your well log. This provides details on geologic formations encountered in a well, as well as details about the well design, construction and yield, and can help you decide what to do if your well has gone dry. If there is a copy of your well log, you can find it through the water resource department: apps/gw/well_log/ Report a dry well or significant reductions in water volume to the Oregon Water Resources Department: xFbW3. This helps scientists monitor groundwater supply, and the department may notify you of relevant funding and assistance. Apply for funding. In addition to Oregon-specific grants, funding may be available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which provides loans to low-income homeowners up to $40,000 to repair or improve homes, including private water wells. See: https://www.rd.usda. gov/programs-services/single-family-housing-programs/single-family-housing-repair-loans-grants/or Read Oregon Water Resources Department’s well owners handbook for more information:

The optimistic wordsmith talks making honest music, his beginnings and what’s next By Isaac Biehl


Justin Bettman

“Well, you done-done me in, you bet I felt it. I tried to be chill but…” here’s no shame in admitting the lyrics to “I’m Yours” instantly fill your head all these years later. For one, it happens to be the most streamed song by a solo artist from 2000-2009. Second, it still lives in our heads because of its warm sentiment and catchy simplicity. Jason Mraz will be at Hayden Homes Amphitheater Friday, where the singer will do his potentially first-ever Bend show. Mraz thinks he maybe has played here before but couldn’t 100 percent remember, and I can’t find anything that says he 100 percent has, either. Either way, it’s the first time in a long time. While “I’m Yours” might be the pinnacle of Mraz’s love songs numbers-wise, he has an entire catalog of other love songs that are also massive hits. So it makes sense why he put together a compilation album of his favorites this year titled “Lalalalovesongs,” featuring iconic Mraz numbers such as, “I Won’t Give Up,” his duet with Colbie Caillat, “Lucky” and “You and I Both.” Looking back at these songs was a wild ride for Mraz. “It was pretty trippy. It was kind of pitched to me as a greatest hits record and I was like wait a minute… am I old?,” laughs Mraz. Some of the songs on the comp are actually deep cuts that Mraz was excited to give new life to with this release. There’s also a bonus unreleased song on the digital version called, “Always Looking For You” that didn’t quite fit on his 2018 record “Know,” but was able to find a home here. “I actually had forgotten about it. If I remembered soon enough it woulda been on the vinyl. I’m glad that actually came out. It’s a sweet little tune. Similar to others I’ve written and maybe that’s why I withheld it in the past because I was looking to evolve.” Mraz notes Damien Rice’s “O” and Bon Iver’s “For Emma, Forever Ago” as good examples of work he

admires when it comes to music about love. With so many of his own under his belt, I asked Mraz what makes a good love song. The first thing he said was the truth. “When you hear a good love song, you can tell. Like, ‘wow… Phil Collins was really going through some shit, man,'” says Mraz. “Really make sure truth is the genesis of the song. You can be clever all day and really craft a love song, but to make it work it has to come from a spontaneous place of truth and urgency.” Mraz will be joined by Raining Jane in Bend and throughout the rest of his summer tour. The friends

are also turning into collaborators this year, as after the tour Mraz says all of them will head into the studio together to work on his next album. About one-third of his set will be unreleased material, so we’re all in for a treat. Read the rest of this interview online at

Jason Mraz Knows Love Songs



Slightly Stoopid brings its sunny brand of reggae mixed with rock, funk, folk, pop and punk rock to the Amphitheater Saturday


By Alan Sculley



Cal-Reggae Veterans

Anders Junger

Slightly Stoopid has been playing its special blend of tunes since 1994, when the band released its first album.


hen guitarists/singers Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald started Slightly Stoopid in 1994, they were out front of a second generation of bands that wanted to build on the reggae-rock sound that was starting to take hold thanks to the success of groups like Sublime, 311 and to a lesser extent, No Doubt. Now some 28 years later, Slightly Stoopid is one of several California reggae-rooted bands that can headline outdoor amphitheaters and a veteran member of a scene packed with acts playing some variation of reggae-rooted music and espousing California culture built around skateboarding, surfing and in many cases, the benefits of cannabis. In fact, touring amphitheaters has become an annual summer ritual for Slightly Stoopid, which plays Hayden Homes Amphitheater July 9. To say the least, Slightly Stoopid has become veterans at what it takes to deliver a largescale show to crowds that can number upward of 20,000. “Now it’s kind of like we’ve got a great crew, awesome lights guy,” Doughty said in a recent phone interview. “Everybody kind of knows what we’re all thinking. It just makes it that much easier when you surround yourself with the right people and the right energy. It’s like anything. If you’ve done something so many times, you get a lot better at it and start to perfect what’s going on around you.” Playing amphitheaters was a pipe dream for Slightly Stoopid when the group started out, but that’s not the case for groups trying to make their

mark in the scene now. The Cali-reggae scene has grown into a significant part of the overall music scene and Doughty is pleased to see other bands benefiting from the genre’s popularity. “I never thought we’d be where we are when I was a kid. This is like living the dream times 10,” Doughty said. “And it’s great. I’m happy for the successes for all of those bands. It’s great to see when a lot of your friends are doing well and are experiencing the same things across the board. It’s pretty cool.” There’s been no magic formula to Slightly Stoopid’s success. The group built its following the old-fashioned hard way, playing 200 or more shows a year during its first decade. Over the years, Slightly Stoopid also added band members to go with its expanding instrumental mix. Today, the lineup includes Doughty, Kyle McDonald (guitar, bass, vocals), Ryan Moran (drums), Oguer Ocon (percussion, harp), Daniel “Dela” Delacruz (saxophone), Paul Wolstencroft (keyboards) and Andy Geib (trombone). And as the touring miles piled up, Slightly Stoopid released studio albums on a regular basis, developing and refining their sunny brand of reggae mixed with rock, funk, folk, pop and even punk rock along the way. The group’s ninth studio album, “Everyday Life, Everyday People,” arrived in 2018 and features guest appearances from several major figures in the reggae world, including Ali Campbell of UB40, Don Carlos (of Black Uhuru fame), Yellowman, Sly Dunbar and

Chali 2na (of Jurassic 5). While plenty eclectic, “Everyday Life, Everyday People” finds Slightly Stoopid leaning a bit more toward reggae than on some of the previous albums. Five of the 13 songs (“Livin’ in Babylon,” “Stay The Same Prayer For You,” “Legalize It,” “No One Stops Us Now Nobody Knows” and “Fire Below”) qualify as fairly full-on reggae, while “Talk Too Much” “If You Want It” and “Too Late” further the reggae-fied feel by dipping into the dub-style side of the reggae form. The album gets its variety from tunes like “Higher Now,” which blends rap, reggae and dreamy soul; “Glocks,” an instrumental offering easy-going, full-bodied rock; “One More Night,” a tuneful acoustic folk-pop ballad; and “Everybody People,” which mixes jammy acoustic folk with reggae. Doughty credited the guest artists on “Everyday Life, Everyday People” with helping set the tone for the music on the album. With Slightly Stoopid joined by Pepper, Common Kings and Fortunate Youth on this summer’s tour, Doughty said there’s always a chance fans will see musical collaborations on stage between Slightly Stoopid and the other musicians. These are moments he enjoys. Slightly Stoopid, with Pepper, Common Kings and Fortunate Youth Sat., July 9, 5 pm Hayden Homes Amphitheater 344 SW Shevlin-Hixon Dr., Bend $49.50 plus fees

First Interstate Bank Bend Summer Festival 2022 / 3

Welcome to the First Interstate Bank Bend Summer Festival! It is my privilege to welcome you to two days of live music and family fun. This annual tradition—back for its 31st year—is a true showcase of arts, culture, and community, and First Interstate Bank is proud to be a part of it. Since 1991, the Bend Summer Festival has donated more than $90,000 to local charities. Proceeds from this year’s event will help support two local nonprofits: the Cascade School of Music and Central Oregon Veteran’s Ranch. You can learn more about these two amazing organizations by visiting

Celebrate summer together at Downtown Bend’s celebration of the arts, culture and community. Discover unique art pieces as you stroll through the Fine Artists Promenade and find a new favorite local shop in our Oregon Lifestyle Marketplace. Bring the kiddos down for our Summer Sprint race for a fun day for the whole family. We have live music featuring regional and local acts that you don’t want to miss. Support local artists, grab a bite, sip on something new and soak up a weekend of fun in the sun. Don’t forget to visit the fabulous shops in Downtown Bend too!

11am - 10pm 11am - 5pm

First Interstate has been part of the fabric of many hardworking towns and cities for over 50 years. We believe community banking is about more than accounts and transactions. It’s about taking care of the places we call home, and making our communities better places to live, work, and play. We’re so glad you’re here to join us in celebrating the things that make Bend and Central Oregon so special. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Bend Fall Festival, to be held September 30-October 2, 2022 right here in Downtown Bend. Enjoy the festivities! Cameronne Mosher, Bend Market President


Mainstage Saturday, July 9th

11:30AM Cascade School of Music

1:00PM Stacie Dread & Mystic

2:30PM Now & Then

As a non-profit music school for all ages our MISSION is to enrich our community by providing exceptional music education and experiences for all Central Oregonians, making music Fun, Engaging, Safe & Social.

From humble beginnings in 2008, Broken Down Guitars was always led by the talented and driven singer/ songwriter/guitarist Stacie Lynn Johnson, known for her soulful, powerhouse vocals and passionately inspired melodies. With the addition of Aaron “Mystic” Chambers’ lyrical skills on the mic and percussion, the sound spun in a fresh direction, and adding a new male/female vocal dynamic for Stacie and Mystic to intertwine.

Talented Guitar Harmony: Original music. Derek Michael Marc and Michael Shane. “Smooth vocals and great guitar sound. One of the most “top-shelf” musical acts we’ve had on the show.” Dennis Plant (88.9FM KPOV Center Stage).

4:00PM Milo Matthews

5:30PM Maxwell Friedman Group

7:00PM Down North

Milo Matthews demonstrates versatility unlike any other bassist. By using a drum pad, effects pedal, and a looping machine Milo can provide his own rhythm, bass line, keys and lead guitar turning him into an unstoppable one man show. Milo’s styles range from Jazz to blues, rock, pop, funk and even folk. Milo performs his own originals as well as as adding his unique flavor to 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s to the Present cover songs. It’s very rare to see Milo play the same song the same way, which makes every performance fresh and new!!!

17-year-old Maxwell Friedman is living proof that some musicians are indeed “born with it.” At an incredibly young age, in less than a decade since he started playing, his ferocious and inspired keyboard playing, and his tasteful and clever compositions are already becoming legendary. In 2019, the band released its debut album, “Beyond Neblar - Live in Bend” and they toured the West Coast in support of its release, including high profile support dates with Greyboy Allstars, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and The New Mastersounds. Now that the “pandemic pause” is nearing its end, the band has finally begun work on their first studio album, which they expect to release in 2022.

Raised on James Brown and Sam Cooke, frontman Anthony Briscoe combines a style of emotional impact reminiscent of Prince in his vocal expressions and proudly steals the spotlight with his ballet-trained dancing. Psychedelic-jazz guitarist Nick Quiller dominates the fretboard with a limitless imagination that explores the soundscape from high to low. Bassist Brandon Storms blends slap and pop bass lines with deep synth, and pitch bent solos that parallel guitar leads, while drummer Conrad Real glues together a foundation through impeccable groove and powerful chops, his finesse, intensity, and strength are evocative of Chris Coleman and John Blackwell.

First Interstate Bank Bend Summer Festival 2022 / 5


Saturday, July 9th 8:30PM Jelly Bread Jelly Bread has risen from Reno/ Lake Tahoe area favorites into a nationally-touring powerhouse that delivers a high-energy, chameleonic playlist all over the United States. Jelly Bread’s distinct style is identified by a blend of desert twang meeting the urban tones of funk and rock. Exceptional songwriting and storytelling interlaced with four part harmonies, intricate “in-the-pocket” drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, tasty talkbox, “take-’emto-church” organ come together into a sound that is downright appetizing.

Sunday, July 10th 11:30AM Cascade School of Music


Watch the students take the stage!

DRIFT is an alt-rock band that performs all original music described as melodic and moody with contemplative and cinematic lyrics.

1:00PM Cheyenne West & Kurt Silva Cheyenne West & Kurt Silva perform classic country tunes as well as modern country tunes that you would hear on today’s radio stations along with some rock n roll covers and originals.

4:00PM Jess Ryan Band Every so often you will encounter a great performer. Someone who gets on stage, and then seems to just open up like a stadium roof, as if to better draw their audience into the dark canyon within. This ability is usually not acquired through the kinds of contrived musical efforts that are practiced or taught. It’s a particular talent that certain performers just have. Jess Ryan has this talent in spades, and to witness her perform is to feel the full force of unbridled human expression. Together, with four other extremely talented musicians, the five-piece band deliver a driving, twang-inflected, psych-infused rock with the kind of emotional power, passion, and intensity that can only come from deep within the heart.

Beneficiaries Lay It Out Events proudly supports local nonprofits & community organizations

Every year, a portion of proceeds from First Interstate Bank Bend Summer Festival is donated to a few local nonprofits. In 2022, Cascade School of Music returns as one of this year’s beneficiaries! For over 18 years, the Cascade School of Music’s Vision has been to build a Central Oregon culture that values lifelong engagement in music where all can actively participate. With over 30 of Central Oregon’s best music educators and performers, our school strives to create a learning environment that is supportive, encouraging, inter-generational, and exciting. Learn more at

In addition, in 2022 a portion of our proceeds will be donated to the Central Oregon Veteran’s Ranch. For the past five years COVR has operated a 19-acre working farm and engaged hundreds of veterans of different ages and eras in peer support and agriculturerelated activities, or “agri-therapy”. COVR has built community and camaraderie among veterans in Central Oregon and around the state. The Ranch helps veterans find a sense of belonging and purpose through meaningful interactions, team projects, education, growing plants and caring for animals. Learn more at covranchorg.

Book Talk

Three incredible books by women authors, for your summer reading pleasure

for Munch & Music By Chris Williams Courtesy Dylan Stoddard


By Jared Rasic

“I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness” By Claire Vaye Watkins

“Sea of Tranquility” By Emily St. John Mandel


One of the most honest and unflinching novels I’ve ever read about motherhood and the fine line between good and bad parenting. The prose is breathtaking, the characters are vivid and lived-in and the balance between fiction and autobiography is astounding.

From the brilliant author of “Station Eleven” comes the most original science fiction novel I’ve read in years. Spanning hundreds of years and multiple characters, Mandel connects this with “Station Eleven” and her last novel “The Glass Hotel,” making somewhat of a Mandel-iverse and I’m absolutely here for it.

“The School for Good Mothers” by Jessamine Chan A woman leaves her baby at home for hours and is sent to a re-education camp that ostensibly forces women to learn what it is to be a good mother. If you loved “The Handmaid’s Tale,” this is another dystopian think piece that will create a whole new generation of activists.

unch & Music, a staple in the Bend music scene, returns this Thursday for its 31st rendition. The free music series has always been a welcome addition to the weekly music lineup when other venues lay dormant mid-week—though this Thursday deserves a shout out because it is packed with high quality live music across Central Oregon (Phutureprimitive at High Desert Music Hall, Marchfourth at Sisters Artworks and Khruangbin at Hayden Homes Amphitheater). This week Munch & Music will host The Yachtsmen. The group pulls experienced musicians from across the Portland area including those from other tribute bands such as the Journey tribute Wheels in the Sky and a fan favorite Excellent Gentleman. The Yachtsmen’s music captures the energy of the yacht rock heyday of the ‘70s and early ‘80s and is sure to have audiences stripping their shoes and loosening up a couple buttons. In essence, the Drake Park stage will be the best beach show of the summer without all the messy sand and shirtless bros. Aside from the music are local food vendors, so show up hungry. There’s also a marketplace of local craftspeople for those looking to do some shopping. Deschutes Brewery will be the beverage provider with its beer lineup and a weekly special cocktail. A kids’ area is also in place with bouncy houses and child-friendly activities. Munch & Music is every Thursday until Aug. 11. This year’s lineup is: July 14: Deep Sea Diver w/Les Gold July 21: The Brothers Comatose w/Beyond the Lamplight July 28: Stone in Love w/Superball Aug. 4: Storm Large w/Wyelow Aug. 11: Precious Byrd w/Company Grand Munch and Music

July 7-Aug. 11, 5:30pm-9pm Drake Park 777 NW Riverside Blvd. Free

By Nicole Vulcan

With veggies springing from local gardens, a Locavore Program dressed-up veggie pasta is ideal for this time of Encourages Helping Out year at Area Farms By Ari Levaux

t translates to “Spring Pasta” from Italian, so forgive me for assuming Pasta Primavera is a classic springtime Italian dish. But while Primavera sounds classy, it turns out Pasta Primavera was invented in Nova Scotia during the summer of 1975. The bottom line is we can prepare cheesy noodles with vegetables any time of year, with summer and fall probably being the best seasons to do so, because they offer more fresh produce than spring. As Pasta Primavera is an American dish, we can use American cheeses if we want. Ultimately, we are talking about mac ‘n cheese with extra vegetables, and there isn’t anything wrong with that. Mac ‘n Cheese Primavera is an effective and delicious way to eat vegetables. And making the entire dish from scratch takes barely any longer than preparing the boxed, veg-less version. A proper Mac ‘n Cheese Primavera has a smooth, non-lumpy cheese sauce and al dente vegetables. I don’t sprinkle it with breadcrumbs and bake it because that makes it difficult to control the cooking, and potential overcooking, of the vegetables. The most common recipes for Pasta Primavera include tomato, bell pepper and other veggies from deeper into the summer, as well as broccoli and peas, which come earlier. Whichever you use, the essential task of this recipe is to cook the vegetables perfectly. The most reliable way of doing so is to steam the veggies separately, shock them in cold water to stop the cooking and keep them crisp, and add them to the almost finished product. Today’s recipe for an early summer Mac ‘n Cheese Primavera features rounds of green and yellow zucchini and fresh herbs like parsley and/or basil. Because zucchini is the only vegetable I’m cooking, I don’t have to worry about overcooking some and undercooking others, so I’ll skip the steaming and briefly sauté the zukes before adding the noodles, fresh from the boiling water and still wet. The water drips off the noodles and into the pan and steams the zucchini in place, while we build the sauce on top with handfuls of shredded cheese. You can use this recipe to track the harvest by incorporating whatever produce is available. Vegetables like peas and broccoli, which need at most a mere hint of cooking, can be incorporated the same way as the zucchini. Steam heartier veggies like cauliflower or carrot before tossing them into the silky and cheesy finished product.

Mac ‘n Cheese Primavera alla Zucchini This dish combines the best elements of two classic pasta dishes: Pasta Primavera and Mac ‘n Cheese. It’s extremely flexible, in the type of cheeses you add as well as which vegetables to include. Serves 6 • 1 pound pasta – preferably short, stubby and hollow, such as penne, which is basically like un-bent elbows and holds sauce similarly • 1 pound zucchini, cut into rounds about a half-inch thick • 3 tablespoons olive oil • 2 tablespoons butter • 3 cloves garlic, chopped • 1 tablespoon mustard powder • 1 teaspoon nutmeg • 1 teaspoon garlic powder • 1 teaspoon black pepper • ¼ lemon, juice and zest • 1 cup milk • ¾ pound of cheese, grated: I like a mix of sharp cheddar, orange cheddar and fontina • Salt – for the pasta water and for seasoning • Fresh parsley and/or basil

You may have heard of the Willing Workers on Organic Farms, or WWOOF program that invites people to work and stay on organic farms around the world—but did you know there’s also a local version that gives a boost to local farms and lets locals get to know them? Central Oregon Locavore’s program, Willing Workers on Local Farms, or WWOLF, gathers “packs” of volunteers to spend a day working at a local farm, in exchange for a meal at the farm and some local growing/farming experience. On July 9, WWOLF is planning an event at Deschutes Canyon Garlic, where volunteers will harvest and hang the farm’s garlic harvest. To participate, people can visit the Central Oregon Locavore page and look for the WWOLF icon to sign up:

Quilts on the Streets, Quilts at the Farmers Market

Delightful with deep-summer veggies such as zucchini, Pasta Primavera also works with peas and other vegetables that are ripe right now.

Bring four quarts of salted (about a tablespoon) water to a boil and cook the pasta. While the pasta is boiling, add the zucchini, butter, oil and garlic to a deep pan or heavy bottom pot and sauté for about five minutes on low/medium heat. When the noodles are done, quickly drain and add them to the zucchini, but don’t stir it together. Sprinkle the mustard powder, nutmeg, garlic powder, black pepper, lemon juice and zest on top of the noodles, but still don’t stir it. Add the milk, and about a quarter of your grated cheese, and give it a stir. Add another quarter of the cheese and stir again. Keep adding the cheese and stirring it in until it’s all in, and keep stirring until it turns into a glorious cheese sauce. If it’s too dry or starts to burn, turn down the heat and add more milk or some pasta water to loosen it. Add salt to taste. It will need some, even if the cheese is salty. Top with fresh herbs and serve.

The second Saturday in June has traditionally been the time for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show—and this year, with the show officially on the books for July 9, the Sisters Farmers Market is extending the quilt-y fun to Sunday, too. In addition to its regular roster of farm produce, meats, eggs and locally made goods, the July 10 market will feature special quilts and host a raffle for one of them. The Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show is loaning a quilt from its collection, from quilter Janet MacConnell, to display at the market. In addition, visitors to the market can take part in a raffle to win a quilt donated by the estate of Boyd Wickman, a local entomologist, which was crafted by Katy Yoder and features 30 jars with all kinds of creatures inside them. The Sisters Farmers Market happens Sundays from 11am to 2pm through the first week of October. More info is available at

Mr. Malcolm's List

THE BLACK PHONE: If you want me at your horror

movie opening night, here is a good recipe to have: Ethan Hawke as a creepy-ass serial killer in a horror film based on a short story by Joe Hill and directed by Scott Derrickson, the demented mind behind the modern horror classic “Sinister.” This is a genuinely fun horror flick that feels like a throwback to the heyday of 1970s serial killer movies. Regal Old Mill

ELVIS: I would have zero interest in this one if it

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


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

JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION: I’m in the minority in thinking the last couple “Jurassic World” movies had a few pretty exciting moments but weren’t actually great movies. This new one brings back Sam Neil, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum from the original, so I’m hoping this one manages to find some of the magic that has been missing. Ultimately, dinosaurs are cool, so this should be fun. Regal Old Mill LIGHTYEAR: Chris Evans is Buzz Lightyear in this high-concept animated sci-fi adventure from Pixar and Disney. The concept is cool: The toy Buzz Lightyear from the “Toy Story” movies is the licensed action figure made from the success of a blockbuster summer movie. “Lightyear” is the in-universe movie that the toy is made from. Now my head hurts. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU: I definitely wish this looked more like a sequel to the surprisingly great “Minions” and less like a prequel to “Despicable Me,” but who am I kidding, I’ll see this either way. I

love me some Twinkie-shaped, gibberish-speaking weirdos. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House

MR. MALCOLM’S LIST: A period romantic comedy

about a woman who is jilted by London’s premiere bachelor because she doesn’t fully meet his list of requirements, so she brings her friend in to pretend to be his ideal companion. We haven’t had a period charmer in a while, so count me as excited for this one. Regal Old Mill

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas star in this deeply funny and insightful look at filmmaking and the process of acting. Cruz has never been funnier in her entire career and Banderas shows he’s willing to be as goofy as humanly possible to get laughs. Tin Pan Theater PHANTOM OF THE OPEN: A very British charmer

starring the always reliable Mark Rylance as the true-life golfer Maurice Flitcroft. Flitcroft shot a 121 in the qualifying competition for the 1976 Open Championship, leading to him earning the title of “World’s Worst Golfer.” This is the story of how a badass ship crane operator spent years gate crashing the British Open. A treat. Sisters Movie House

THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER: I’m very excited for this because writer/director Taika Waititi is one our most innovative filmmakers and “Love and Thunder” also introduces Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher, one of comic books’ scariest and most deadly villains in history. Can we also just take a minute to be amazed at how far Chris Hemsworth has come in the role of Thor? He’s a genuinely heroic and comedic presence now and I hope we get Thor movies forever. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House, Odem Theater Pub, McMenamins

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

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


the Source Be With You SCREEN May July edition: "Star Wars," Sympathy Pains and "Stranger Things" By Jared Rasic 53 Courtesy of HBO



t’s been hot outside, but it’s also raining a lot with thunderstorms and massive lightning attacks happening all willy nilly. It has become downright unpredictable around here in Central Oregon and I’m here for it. I like having to check the weather before walking out into the world; it makes me feel like I’m living somewhere that just doesn’t have a handle on what kind of vibe it wants to have, which I find extremely relatable. Anyway, whether I’m avoiding the heat, dodging lightning or wondering why it’s cold at 2pm, here’s a few things I’ve been enjoying over the last 30 days. In Pod We Trust: I keep waiting for the podcast bubble to burst, but now I really don’t think it’s ever going to come close to slowing down. There’s no need for it to, because there are literally podcasts for everyone now. If there’s any show you’ve ever enjoyed, there’s a podcast with cast members reminiscing about their favorite episodes. If you have a favorite true crime story, there’s a podcast doing a deep dive into it right now. You only like fictional podcasts? There are 50 of them just waiting to suck you into their world. Everyone complains about how many streaming services there are, but I think there might be even more podcasts than TV shows right now. In 2022, so many good ones are running that I get anxiety trying to listen to them all. I’m sad “Reply All” has ended, but I’m finding new ones to sate my obsessions. Jamie Loftus’ (“Lolita Podcast) new podcast is an absolutely fascinating look at spiritualism called “Ghost Church.” If you have even a passing interest in old-times seances and religion, you will instantly get hooked on this one. If you’re in the market for a new true crime obsession, “Sympathy Pains” is a fantastic six-part banger

“Irma Vep” is the best show you’re not currently watching.

from Laura Beil, the beautiful mind behind “Dr. Death.” This one tackles the most insane case of Munchausen-By-Proxy syndrome you’ve ever heard of and might possibly ruin your faith in humanity a little, but it’s an even trade-off and we both know it’s already a little ruined anyway. “Wild Things” is an eight-part expose that I can’t recommend enough about the night Roy (from Sigfried & Roy) was killed onstage by one of his own tigers. You won’t believe the story that went unreported here. Now Streaming Wow, so those final two episodes of “Stranger Things,” huh? I think that was definitely the best season since the first and I’m really hoping that they stick the landing with the fifth and final season. I want to talk so much more about it, but the episodes have only

been out for a couple of days and spoiling anything about them would be evil. The “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series on Disney+ started off a little rough, but I really think that last episode was about as close to perfect as the “Star Wars” franchise has managed in quite some time. Also, Marvel’s new Disney+ series “Ms. Marvel” is absolutely fantastic so far, with some of the most touching and exciting character building that any of the TV shows related to the MCU have managed up until now. HBO is also crushing it with the “Irma Vep” series and the beginning of the new season of “Westworld.” It’s hard to know whether the shows will have a strong ending or fall apart eventually. Either way, there’s a ton of appointment viewing going on, so make sure and use your time wisely.

Exploring the Upper Deschutes River

By Chris Williams

Submitted By Ripely

The Upper Deschutes offers boaters some stellar scenery, moments of solitude and flatwater floats


By Damian Fagan Damian Fagan

Oregon Mountain Bike Race

A stand-up paddle boarder enjoys a relaxing float on the Deschutes River.


or those looking for a different stretch of the Deschutes River to float this summer, instead of the “tube to tube” section through the Old Mill District, there are numerous flatwater options to float your boat. Here are several options to explore reaches of the designated Wild and Scenic Upper Deschutes River, as well as a few reminders. Slough Camp to the base of Benham Falls Located off of Forest Road 41, the Slough Camp Day Use Area is an easy place to launch a kayak or canoe for a fun paddle 1.0 river miles upstream toward the impressive Benham Falls and about 1.6 river miles downstream to the top of Dillon Falls. The upstream section winds past ponderosa pines and the massive lava flow from Lava Butte which dammed the river about 7,000 years ago at Benham Falls. Water backed up behind this basalt dam and created Sunriver Lake which eventually overflowed the dam and eroded a passage through the basalt, creating the spectacular Benham Falls. Paddling against the current will require some effort to reach the tail-end of the Benham Falls rapids. The whitewater area makes a good turn-around point, and all that paddling effort will be rewarded as the current carries you back to Slough Camp. Those up for a little more paddlin’ from Slough Camp can continue downstream, enjoying the lazy curves of the river to the Dillon Falls Day Use area and boat ramp. This stretch passes the Ryan Meadow area where the Forest Service recently re-connected the river and this backwater slough, which formed a great habitat for waterfowl and amphibians. On the river, heed the riverbank warning signs about not continuing downstream past the Dillon Falls boat launch; Dillon Falls will seriously mess you up – that is if you survive the falls. The upstream, return paddle to Slough Camp is pretty easy against the slow-moving current. Big River to Besson Day Use Area This section of the Deschutes follows big lazy curves past forest woodlands, lush riparian willows and neighborhoods set back from the river for about 10 river miles. At times, the

current does all the work; however, occasionally dipping your paddle blade will speed up the float. Prior to launching a boat at the Big River Boat Launch on Forest Road 42, arrange a shuttle to the Besson Day Use Area downstream of the busy Harper Bridge off Spring River Road. The Besson take-out is about 2.5 river miles downstream of the bridge on river left. Though this is a popular float with locals and Sunriver guests, it’s still a great way to enjoy a relaxing time on the river. Keep an eye out for ospreys and bald eagles diving after fish or the occasional river otter swimming alongside your boat. LaPine State Park to Big River This float begins at the boat launch just downstream of the LaPine State Park Bridge in the park and continues to the Big River Day Use launch. This float is about 9.3 river miles long, winding and twisting past ancient oxbows, big trees and the confluence with the Fall River before reaching the takeout. Again, the current does a lot of the work. The road shuttle is a bit longer for this float but connecting via Huntington Road makes it a quick trip. A few reminders Assuming you’ve got your boating gear together, including those 13 and under wearing a Coast Guard-approved PDF (personal flotation device), here are a few other tips. Download a free Deschutes Paddle Trail Rver Guide, created by the Bend Paddle Alliance, from the Avenza Maps website. The guide is also available from local outdoor gear retailers. The mile-by-mile guide points out hazards and launch areas. If a canoe, kayak or SUP is longer than 10 feet, you’ll also need to purchase an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Waterway Access Permit online or through a vendor. An annual permit costs $19 (includes $2 agent fee) and the seven-day option is $7. Many of the boat launch areas also require either a Northwest Forest or other federal pass for parking, too. Stay safe and respect the river!

Who needs sleep when you have adrenaline pumping through the veins and a trail guided by moonlight while competing in a mountain bike race? If staying up all night and riding a bike on dirt trails sounds like your kind of thing then the 2022 Oregon 24/12 mountain bike relay race is right up your alley. Folks come for the challenge and the race, but return because of the good vibes and community that is kindled at sufferfests such as this. The 24/12 race consists of a course that loops through some of the most recognizable trails in Central Oregon, and asks racers to either compete in a full 24-hour race or a toned down 12-hour race. Starting at Wanoga Sno Park, riders will head through the Tiddlywinks trail, down to Kiwa Butte and Dinah-Moe Humm trail then up through various forest roads back to the start. The loop is 11 miles, with 70% of the trail being single-track. Teams can have a total of two to 10 riders with varying entrance fees based on team size. Camping is included if you choose to sleep in the dirt at Wanoga. For those who eat and breathe type2 fun, ditch a relay team and compete in the race solo. Winners of the solo category will have the opportunity to take home a cash purse of $1,000 for the full 24-hour race, or $500 for the 12-hour race. And $100 is up for those who complete the fastest lap time in the male and female categories.

Oh, the Poor Old Porcupine

Tales of the local “porky,” a misunderstood creature of the east Cascades By Jim Anderson 57


Photos courtesy of Jim Anderson

Left, Jim Anderson wrangles a porcupine with some degree of safety, while eying the quills stuck in his arm. Right, Anderson on his old faithful 1947 Harley on his way to Oregon from Connecticut..

“We found one on the bike path down where the culvert empties water from the lagoon system into the Deschutes. I was driving, and the headlights were on the porcupine and Jeff jumped out, grabbed the box and ran to put it over the porcupine. Of course, it wasn’t inclined to wait to see what Jeff had in mind and it charged out of sight and into the darkness at the edge of the path. “Jeff sprinted forward and jumped in front of the porcupine to get it to stop and landed waist-deep in the pond. The porky stayed dry. But it eventually ended up in Jeff’s box and was delivered to the museum. “But yes, I have really fond and warm memories of more than one porcupine. Even now, my good friend Chris Rombough three years ago rescued a female orphaned porky baby, and she and he have an incredibly close relationship. “It will happily climb up into your lap if you’ve got a few raspberries in your hand. It is sweet and gentle, but a typical female in that she can be rather moody. And she hates taking her medicine which Chris has to hide in treats. He still insists that she is smarter than any of the cats his partner keeps at their places.” In case you’re interested, there are New and Old World porcupines. Both are in the zoological Order Rodentia (rodents), and possess about 30,000 quills along their back and tail, which are really modified hairs composed of keratin. The largest species of porcupine, found in Europe, is the third-largest living rodent in the world—after the capybara and beaver.

Now, I’ll bet you didn’t know all that, did you? Porcupines can also be vocal, and use their teeth to make sounds which can be heard at a considerable distance. According to one record I found, they also have a wonderful memory, especially if treated badly. And they have bare feet — four toes on the front and five on the back with very long and sharp claws. How else can you climb trees…? That porcupine on the hood of George Long’s Toyota got there because I was using George’s rig for a ladder and got that porcupine by the tail (you can do that if you go with the grain) but it was too much for me, and I unintentionally dropped it. (I just wanted to bring it down a few branches for some photos.) George said, “Oh, leave it where it is Jim, we can drop it off on our way to Fort Rock from Christmas Valley!” Which reminds me, in Oregon porcupines are found mostly on the east side of the Cascades, and only a few scattered locations on the west side. There are predators that can kill and eat porcupines, like Golden Eagles. In my over 50 years of keeping an eye on eagles, which included trespassing in their nests and banding their babies, I found skinned porcupines in nests and occasional young eaglets with quills in their feet and legs. Oh, and one more thing: porcupines do not hibernate and are active throughout the year. They also enjoy being out at night more than during the day— and if you’re a caver, watch out you don’t stumble over one. One winter my brother, Don, and I disturbed a big porcupine sex orgy in a lava cave out near the Knott Landfill. We were squirming through the cave and the porcupines heard us coming and began rubbing their teeth together making warning sounds. Don shouted, “What the hell is that?!” I could see their eyes reflecting from my headlamp and told him what was coming and to turn his face to the wall to escape getting slapped by a tail. They waddled out of the cave right past us in the narrow passageway, and I noticed they were grinning.



ur poor old porcupines have been in man’s gun sights since the first pioneer deemed it a pest. The porcupine is, unfortunately, a tree-eating mammal and Man’s greed said, “That thing has gotta go!” That attitude about porcupines only got worse the more we cut up trees for houses, killed beavers for coats and hats, cleared out brush for farms and killed birds for food, feathers and the fun of it. When I rolled into Bend in September of 1951 there were signs all over the forest, “Please kill porcupines!” And the impact of that movement can still be seen today. Porcupines are a very rare sight throughout their range, even in the alfalfa fields where they were once a serious threat when they got killed by the mower then baled up and (later) fed to cows. One of the most important biological factors about porcupines: nature designed them to keep brush under control. That’s why they have that formidable defense mechanism of needle-sharp quills they developed over time to help protect their chubby little bodies from fierce ground-based predators, like Saber-toothed tigers. The tree-eating business got started when we cleared the land of brush to grow stuff for humans to eat; the porkies opted for trees instead. As a practicing naturalist today I had about given up on there being many porcupines left, not having seen one in the wild for a good number of years. Then, much to my surprise and pleasure what should arrive in my email but two photos of a baby porky from Pete Mayer, a kestrel nesting box pal of mine living near Tumalo! To say I was happy would be a gross understatement. Mother Nature can be sneaky about the way she does things, and somehow, somewhere, a daddy and a mommy porky found each other in these trying times and managed to produce a youngster. One of the most remarkable things about porcupines is their means of defense—those needle- sharp, very stiff hairs we call quills, or spines work very well. NO! They cannot “throw” them! But if you get close enough they can swing that tail of theirs with enough force to imbed them into your flesh far enough to cause a lot of pain, and in some instances requiring surgical procedures to remove them. Dog owners have dealt with this dilemma many a time. When my old pal Don Kerr started the High Desert Museum, he wanted two exhibits to start it: one with raptors and the other with a porcupine. Kerr was into the raptor business up to his armpits, so starting a Bird of Prey exhibit was a no brainer; but he didn’t have a porcupine, or the slightest idea how to acquire one. So he called on another old pal of both of ours, Jay Bowerman, who in turn gave a shout to Jeff Cooney. Here’s the way it went, in Bowerman’s words: “I have an indelible memory of the night that Jeff and I were out in the mosquito rig (at Sunriver) armed with a cardboard box to catch a porcupine for Don Kerr’s newly completed but uninhabited porcupine exhibit.

Wild Ride’s Wild Ride

Redmond Brewery opens second location in Prineville By Brian Yaeger Wild Ride


Wild Ride’s new brewery and taproom is now open in Prineville.


EST. 2015 | BEND, ORE.

hen Redmond’s Wild Ride Brewing was an unnamed project in the planning stage—it opened in 2014—one of the five original co-owners remarked that the process itself was “a wild ride” and the concept stuck. Eight years and one global pandemic later, the ride now flows into Prineville. In addition to the original 20-barrel system, the beer makers now operate a five-barrel pilot system and taproom in what looks mighty similar to its original location—down to the glass garage doors, towering grain silo and bank of four food trucks. If it ain’t broke.... Co-founder Brian Mitchell said it was the pandemic that, “shifted our focus of operations to what we had more control over, which was a second taproom location,” given that “distribution has been very challenging since the pandemic hit.” Wild Ride’s beers are distributed beyond Oregon in Washington, Idaho and Alaska. What really pulled the brewing company through—and every local company that’s still in business—is the support it received from locals. Said Mitchell, “We have always felt so fortunate for the Redmond and Central Oregon community (and now Prineville as well) for all of the support they’ve given Wild Ride. It’s a huge reason we host a handful of special events throughout the year to raise a lot of money to give back to the community and as a way to say thank you in an entertaining way. It always sounds kind of corny when you say it, but we wouldn’t be here without the Central Oregon community supporting us, especially during these past couple of years.” The new Prineville location’s smaller brewing system allows Wild Ride to both “fine-tune current beer recipes” as well as experiment “with unique

brewing ingredients,” Mitchell told the Source. There are a total of two dozen house beers on tap (plus a pair of guest ciders, not to mention wine options and soft drinks for customers of all ages) in Prineville. Mitchell said Wild Ride’s brewmaster, Michael “Curly” White, will oversee brewing operations at both brewing facilities and will “probably get back to some of his old roots in brewing more often on the smaller system.” White previously brewed at McMenamins Old St. Francis School in Bend, on its basement-level, six-barrel brewery for nearly 15 years. Located on Prineville’s main street, Third Street, Wild Ride’s new 4,000-square-foot facility and large patio includes multiple fire pits. The current food truck operators include Wild Catch Fish & Chips, Stone Pine Pizza, Andale Street Tacos and Burger Love. The trucks, like the brewery, are open daily from 11 am to 10 pm. As for what might come next after opening a second location after eight years in business, Mitchell said, “We’ve always invested in ourselves.” He credits the extraordinary team that has made Wild Ride the destination it’s become. As for possibly eyeing a third destination, he added, “It’s a bit early, but it certainly has been discussed. If and when the time is right to expand again, it’s very likely that we’d be looking outside of Central Oregon, (but) it’s about finding the community we feel would support the Wild Ride brand… and create a fun, casual, beer-centric environment.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I love these lines by Leo poet Conrad Aiken: “Remember (when time comes) how chaos died to shape the shining leaf.” I hope this lyrical thought will help you understand the transformation you’re going through. The time has come for some of your chaos to expire—and in doing so, generate your personal equivalent of shining leaves. Can you imagine what the process would look and feel like? How might it unfold? Your homework is to ponder these wonders.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A British woman named Andie Holman calls herself the Scar Queen. She says, “Tight scar tissue creates pain, impacts mobility, affects your posture, and usually looks bad.” Her specialty is to diminish the limiting effects of scars, restoring flexibility and decreasing aches. Of course, she works with actual physical wounds, not the psychological kind. I wish I could refer you to healers who would help you with the latter, Virgo. Do you know any? If not, seek one out. The good news is that you now have more personal power than usual to recover from your old traumas and diminish your scars. I urge you to make such work a priority in the coming weeks. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Ancient Roman philosopher Seneca wrote, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” But a Spanish proverb suggests a different element may be necessary: “Good luck comes by elbowing.” (Elbowing refers to the gesture you use as you push your way through a crowd, nudging people away from the path you want to take.) A Danish proverb says that preparation and elbowing aren’t enough: “Luck will carry someone across the brook if they are not too lazy to leap.” Modern author Wendy Walker has the last word: “Fortune adores audacity.” I hope I’ve inspired you to be alert to the possibility that extra luck is now available to you. And I hope I’ve convinced you to be audacious, energetic, well-prepared, and willing to engage in elbowing. Take maximum advantage of this opportunity. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Many Scorpios imagine sex to be a magnificent devotion, a quintessential mode of worship, an unparalleled celebration of sacred earthiness. I endorse and admire this perspective. If our culture had more of it, the art and entertainment industries would offer far less of the demeaning, superficial versions of sexuality that are so rampant. Here’s another thing I love about Scorpios: So many of you grasp the value of sublimating lust into other fun and constructive accomplishments. You’re skilled at channeling your high-powered libido into practical actions that may have no apparent erotic element. The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to do a lot of that. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A Sagittarius reader named Jenny-Sue asked, “What are actions I could take to make my life more magical?” I’m glad she asked. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to raise your delight and enchantment levels, to bask in the blessed glories of alluring mysteries and uncanny synchronicities. Here are a few tips: 1. Learn the moon’s phases and keep track of them. 2. Acquire a new sacred treasure and keep it under your pillow or in your bed. 3. Before sleep, ask your deep mind to provide you with dreams that help generate creative answers to a specific question. 4. Go on walks at night or at dawn. 5. Compose a wild or funny prayer and

shout it aloud it as you run through a field. 6. Sing a soulful song to yourself as you gaze into a mirror.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Being able to receive love doesn’t come easy for some Capricorns. You may also not be adept at making yourself fully available for gifts and blessings. But you can learn these things. You can practice. With enough mindful attention, you might eventually become skilled at the art of getting a lot of what you need and knowing what to do with it. And I believe the coming weeks will be a marvelous time to increase your mastery. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “If I don’t practice one day, I know it; two days, the critics know it; three days, the public knows it.” This quote is variously attributed to violinist Jascha Heifetz, trumpeter Louis Armstrong, and violinist Isaac Stern. It’s a fundamental principle for everyone who wants to get skilled at any task, not just for musicians. To become a master of what you love to do, you must work on it with extreme regularity. This is always true, of course. But according to my astrological analysis, it will be even more intensely true and desirable for you during the coming months. Life is inviting you to raise your expertise to a higher level. I hope you’ll respond! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In May 2021, Jessica and Ben Laws got married on their dairy farm. The ceremony unfolded smoothly, but an unforeseen event interrupted the reception party. A friend who had been monitoring their herd came to tell the happy couple that their pregnant cow had gone into labor and was experiencing difficulties. Jessica ran to the barn and plunged into active assistance, still clad in her lovely floor-length bridal gown and silver tiara. The dress got muddy and trashed, but the birth was successful. The new bride had no regrets. I propose making her your role model for now. Put practicality over idealism. Opt for raw and gritty necessities instead of neat formalities. Serve what’s soulful, even if it’s messy.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): With a fanciful flourish, Aries poet Seamus Heaney wrote, “I ate the day / Deliberately, that its tang / Might quicken me all into verb, pure verb.” I’d love for you to be a pure verb for a while, Aries. Doing so would put you in robust rapport with astrological rhythms. As a pure verb, you’ll never be static. Flowing and transformation will be your specialties. A steady stream of fresh inspiration and new meanings will come your way. You already have an abundance of raw potential for living like a verb—more than all the other signs of the zodiac. And in the coming weeks, your aptitude for that fluidic state will be even stronger than usual. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): According to Arthurian myth, the Holy Grail is a cup that confers magical powers. Among them are eternal youth, miraculous healing, the restoration of hope, the resurrection of the dead, and an unending supply of healthy and delicious food and drink. Did the Grail ever exist as a material object? Some believe so. After 34 years of research, historian David Adkins thinks he’s close to finding it. He says it’s buried beneath an old house in Burton-on-Trent, a town in central England. I propose we make this tantalizing prospect your metaphor of power during the coming weeks. Why? I suspect there’s a chance you will discover a treasure or precious source of vitality. It may be partially hidden in plain sight or barely disguised in a mundane setting.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I’m pleased to authorize you to be extra vast and extensive in the coming weeks. Like Gemini poet Walt Whitman, you should never apologize and always be proud of the fact that you contain multitudes. Your multivalent, wide-ranging outlook will be an asset, not a liability. We should all thank you for being a grand compendium of different selves. Your versatility and elasticity will enhance the well-being of all of us whose lives you touch.

Homework: Ask a friend or loved one to tell you a good secret.


By Burt Gershater

The benefits of our energy expenditure travel beyond our wildest dreams. That’s why it’s so critical to keep shining.

Life is cool! You are cool! I love learning something new and sharing it with my clients, friends and family. From that day on I attempt to integrate this new wisdom into my life. This way I can keep doing life a little bit better, and then help others do the same. Shine a little light. Show us the way. Lead us to a brighter day. ~Yitzi Hurwitz







Human beings are so blessed! Every day we can awaken and decide to do our lives better than we did the day before. This desire to improve is built into our genetic makeup. Hunters, farmers, healers, parents, writers and athletes…are all looking for new and improved skills. Sometimes it is simply by practice, practice, practice—repetition has its own magical powers. Other times it is learning something entirely new and then, again, we practice, practice, practice. What is so compelling about improvement? I don’t totally understand what this historical, genetic quality of “getting better” is all about, but I do know that its opposites—stagnation, complacence and indifference—are ways to stop living while we’re still alive. I also know that upgrading, refining and advancing predictably bring light into our world. We are here on Earth to bring more light. Today’s topic is THE BIG ONE. How, in this lifetime, do I become the best person I was always meant to be? Whew!! Where do I find the curriculum for this one?? It so happens, there is one and it has been around for over 3,000 years. It breaks down who each of us is into seven distinct but inherently interrelated attributes. This helped the newly freed Jewish slaves elevate themselves as they made their way out of Egypt, through the desert, north to the Holy Land. Thank you, Simon Jacobson, for clarifying these steps in your now famous

book, “The Counting of the Omer.” Each of us can relate to these seven essential human ingredients, and with this clarity, can continue doing life better…and better! Lovingkindness. Of course, we begin with lovingkindness. Without this essential human quality, what else matters? Lovingkindness allows us to let go of “me” and connect to others. A simple smile can change someone’s day. Lovingkindness is the foundation. How can you do it better today? Discipline. Without discipline our lovingkindness can become scattered. We don’t focus and our love becomes diluted—we become diluted. Discipline directs our lovingkindness like a laser beam; our love hits our chosen targets. How is your discipline these days? Mine needs continual refining. Compassion, Harmony. Compassion lets go of me so I am able to feel and care for you. You deeply matter and my caring about you releases my ego. Our self-centeredness fades and selflessness emerges. It’s softer…but way more powerful. Breathe. Trust. Endurance, Ambition. Without endurance our efforts float away. With it our values, dreams and goals become a reality. Hurdles are not truly hurdles; they are a normal part of every journey. How’s your endurance these days? I have a few coaches to keep me on task. Humility. This is the quiet force that runs the show. Humility is always saying “thank you.” It realizes that “I” am only “I” because of infinite contributors: teachers, parents, friends, coaches, healers, mentors, angels… . This awareness should make us smile with continual gratitude. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Bonding. We have arrived. Now there is no separation, only an inseparable union. Two become one. Two become one… . Yes, we are still individual, but are we, really? This union allows us to be our highest selves—fully connected. Let go a little more and gain so much more. Sovereignty, Nobility. These are not things “to do.” This is simply an acknowledgment that we really matter. Do we ever! Sure, there are negative inner voices working overtime to convince us otherwise. That’s their job. Ignore all that junk and listen to the truth! You matter. I matter. We matter. Let’s get better, every day. Practice. Learn. Practice. Learn. Practice. And remember, it starts with lovingkindness.


I am not a preacher, a rabbi, a monk or any officially designated spiritual leader. I am a counselor, leadership trainer, writer and ultimately, a teacher—a teacher of the things I believe are most important and too often least addressed. Topics about intimacy, creating inner and outer peace, how to truly listen and accepting how cool you really are. The list goes on… .

What’s Really Happening with Mortgage Rates? It’s important to understand the context beyond the headlines it’s important that you understand the context of what’s happening and how it impacts your financial decisions when it comes to home ownership. Partnering with an expert mortgage broker that can offer creative solutions for your specific needs can be the difference between a smooth transaction and a disappointment or worse: a financial mistake. For instance, did you know that in some scenarios you can negotiate with a seller to buy down the interest rate? In simple terms, a buydown allows the borrower to obtain a lower rate by paying an additional fee that can be paid by the seller. This will help lessen the impact of higher monthly payments at today’s rate. Another idea for buyers, if you are confident rates will drop in the next few years, you might consider an adjustable-rate mortgage. This type of loan allows you to refinance later when rates are more agreeable to your goals. My job as a mortgage broker is to know on any given day which lenders have philosophies that align with my borrowers’ situations. Many borrowers think they have an easy case only to find out that not every lender will work with them. Working with a broker as opposed to a banker gives borrowers the ability to have a professional guide and rate shopper in a very complex world. Bottom line? The ability to “shop around” for a lender that matches your needs comes in handy during dynamic times and can save you quite a bit of money in the long run.

topic that’s on most people’s minds today: mortgage rates. That’s understandable. Since fall 2021, we have seen mortgage rates increase significantly. The trend affects homeowners, would-be homeowners and the greater financial and real estate markets. So, why the seemingly sudden rise in rates? While there are many factors that affect rates, the number one item that moves mortgage rates is the expectation of inflation. The impacts of inflation, coupled with the artificially low rates we’ve experienced since 2020, has created an upward trend. But are rates as bad as the headlines lead us to believe? No. Even at our current rate, historically, we are still enjoying a period of relatively low interest on home loans. Freddie Mac has provided a weekly rate survey since 1971 using the same methodology. The average 30-year rates from 1971 to end of 2021 was 7.8%, according to Freddie Mac. Since I started in the mortgage business in 1993, I have rarely seen rates above that 50-year average. Today’s rates are keeping with that trend, even with the hikes and inflation expectations. They are still lower than the 50-year average. The coming weeks and months will have a lot to tell us about how the lending markets will respond to current market conditions. If the expectation is for significant inflation, then rates will likely rise. If the expectation changes to a recession and limited inflation, then we should see rates drop. No matter what the lending market does in the future, as a consumer,
