The Beer Issue!

Did you know? As of May, Oregon breweries had already sold 652,571 barrels— yes, BARRELS—of beer this year, according to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. If that’s not an indication of the love Oregonians have for the suds, we don’t know what is. In honor of that beloved beverage, we’re bringing our annual Beer Issue, starting with a news story on page 6, followed by a whole beer section on page 10. PLUS: CHOW — p.41 A Beer Pairing Calendar: Whip out your scheduling app to mark the dates for these beer-forward food events. CRAFT — p.43 Beer Does Cocktails: Some Oregon breweries are getting into the mixed-drinks game—in cans! NATURAL WORLD — p.47 The Mysteries of the Pandora moth, sorta, kinda explained.

fter losing 33 U.S. House seats to the “Blue Wave” that was the 2018 election, Republicans are getting creative to try to push an anti-climate agenda that, despite polling, they see as a path to more representation. The headline of an Associated Press story by James Anderson, published over the weekend, reads, “In some states, Republicans see the recall as their way back to power.” That story highlighted Republicans’ goals to gain back power—even if the threats to power they see can fall under the old “economy versus environment” banner. Close to home, Republicans in Oregon are attempting to recall Gov. Kate Brown (D), who was re-elected by a sizeable margin in November 2018. Nationwide, Republicans are aiming to time the recall attempts against everyone from state legislators to state governors, according to the story, during periods when voter turnout is expected to be low. “… that’s essentially an admission that Republicans are using the recall not as a vehicle to oust corrupt officials, but rather as an attempt to game the system and flip seats they otherwise could not win in a regular election,” Anderson wrote. If you’re one of those people who makes an effort to vote in every election, good on you—but these attempts should be a reminder that your attention is required beyond the occasional May or November election cycle. If a politician is found to be truly corrupt or incompetent or unwilling to carry out the duties of the position, the recall process gives voters a chance to re-assess. But using it as a re-do on election results that people don’t like is not that. The attempt to recall Brown, for example, is not done in the spirit of recalling corrupt or incompetent public officials. According to a statement released by Oregon GOP Chairman Bill Currier, it was more about words, not actions. Currier pointed to Brown’s announcement, the day after the close of the legislative session, that she would consider using executive order to carry out a climate change plan as reason enough to recall her. Currier also pointed to the passage of House Bill 2015, the bill allowing undocumented people to get a driver’s license in the state—which passed in the House 39-21, and which Brown has yet to sign—as further evidence of

the need to recall her. If there is corruption or incompetence or dereliction of duty afoot here, it should be directed at Senate Republicans—the same ones whose walkout shut down the Oregon Legislature for nine days and forced a last-minute cavalcade of bill-passage in the session’s final hours. Were Republicans at work, as they should have been, they might have been able to spend time persuading their colleagues not to vote for bills they didn’t agree with. It was a bill about climate change that prompted the walkout— a topic that Republicans are relentless in attempting to change the outcome next time. Sen. Cliff Bentz (R-Ontario) and Rep. Daniel Bonham (R-The Dalles)—whose districts include parts of Central Oregon, including Sisters—are going “on tour” with a series of town halls covering Cap and Trade legislation—a key part of HB 2020, which prompted the walkout. Bonham and Bentz are among the six Republicans on the 14-member Joint Committee on Carbon Reduction—which might indicate that they believe that carbon reduction is a goal for Oregon. Still, their press release about their town halls indicates something else. Their release, issued July 17, invites people to the town halls, with “an opportunity for attendees to express” how they feel about questions, including, in their words: “How can Oregon’s 4 million people be “climate relevant” in a world of 7.5 billion people?” and “Should parts of Oregon’s economy be sacrificed so that CO2 can be reduced more quickly?” Those are leading questions. It would be refreshing for constituents in those districts to come with some of their own thoughts, such as “How can Oregon’s 4 million people add to the millions of other people in other communities, also doing their part to mitigate climate change?” or “How can Oregon’s economy adapt to become resilient in the face of a climate that is causing more wildfires, floods and droughts?” You can bet that in the ongoing saga of environment versus economy, these questions are not going to go away. And now, more than ever, it’s up to everyone to pay attention—before and after election season. The Sisters Town Hall with Sen. Bentz and Rep. Bonham takes place Mon., July 29 from 6 to 8:30pm at the Five Pine Lodge & Conference Center.




GUEST OPINION In 2005, the Portland General Electric Company and the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs were awarded a 50-year license to operate the Pelton Round Butte Hydroelectric Complex near Madras. Part of that license includes a program, proposed by PGE in the 1990s, to restore runs of salmon and steelhead that had been extirpated above the project by construction of the three-dam complex. Since then at least $150 million—and perhaps much more—has been expended on an experimental selective water withdrawal fish passage project that has degraded water quality in the lower Deschutes River. While the specific cost is borne by PGE ratepayers, the project’s wider costs have been imposed on all river users. Recently PGE claimed that 47 adult spring Chinook had returned to the dam complex, but the factual record provides no cause for celebration. The adult fish return so far this year is well within the range of returns since counting commenced in 2012 (five years after juvenile fish were first planted in the tributaries above Lake Billy Chinook for reintroduction purposes). The present return to the median simply does not herald success. Numerous studies by the Deschutes River Alliance and others have demonstrated that the selective water withdrawal experiment at Round Butte Dam has degraded water quality in the lower 100 miles of the Deschutes River. Toxic algae blooms in Lake Billy Chinook recur annually and with this project the most contaminated layer of Lake Billy Chinook water is discharged without treatment into the lower Deschutes River. Many who depend on the lower river for their drinking water, livelihoods and recreation are impacted. A responsible approach would consider feasible alternatives; at least one comes immediately to mind. PGE and the Tribes already transport juvenile fish by truck to plant in the tributaries above Lake Billy Chinook. Some


of these juvenile fish then migrate back down to the dam complex where they are trapped and then trucked downstream around the three dams. Several years later, any returning adult fish are trapped at the lowest of the three dams and trucked up to Lake Billy Chinook, where they are released. Transporting fish by truck thus is already an integral part of the fish reintroduction program. But data recently submitted by the dam operators in a report to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission suggests that losses of juvenile salmon and steelhead in their downstream-migration through Lake Billy Chinook are substantial. We propose that project operators simply truck out migrating fish from the tributaries around not only the dams, but Lake Billy Chinook as well. The operators already possess and employ the technology needed to undertake these changes. Such an enlarged fish transport program should improve fish survival and returns while allowing the project to be operated so as to minimize the ecological damage to the lower Deschutes River. — Greg McMillan, President, Deschutes River Alliance

Please do not encourage a culture of impatience, disregard or anger by motorists towards cyclists on the road. I invite you to take your bike on the road in town. I think you would find empathy for those of us who ride on two wheels. — Bill Matlock

IN RESPONSE TO, “SHARING THE ROAD” ON 7/10 I was very “blown away” by your response to a letter pointing out the shortfalls in our cycling public, where you celebrated a rather incendiary letter which you awarded this person with a “gift to palate” and called it the letter of the week. Not being in disagreement with the infractions done by our bicycling public (often the young and inexperienced in a learning phase of life). I am an active cyclist myself, though I try to get out of town or trail to ride without incident. It is totally a cooperative effort with the car and the bike working in concert to make the roads as safe as possible. My concern is primarily for the safety of the bike riders who are out there with their flesh exposed against a metal object moving generally much faster than the rider.

Dan—I am tired of waiting for you to share the road. It’s laughable that a driver gets letter of the week for demonizing all cyclists, both those who follow the rules of the road and those who don’t, when study after study shows that drivers are incompetent and distracted. This morning Dan tried to run me off the road with his f150. Dan saved his best for yesterday when he didn’t signal that right turn again. And Dan is always on his cellphone while driving. That’s right Dan, there’s two sides to the story. I can assure you however, that I have never threatened the life of a driver with my bicycle but Dans of all types have threatened my life repeatedly, both through neglect and bad intentions, while I have ridden my bike both in my native NYC and in my adopted home of 12 years, central OR. Dan—I am tired of waiting for you to share the road.

Letter of the Week:

Ethan, While I’d disagree that the spirit of the original letter was to “demonize” all cyclists, you, too, have many valid points. Hang up and drive, drivers! Come on in for your gift card to Palate. — Nicole Vulcan

It’s been a tough year for some craft brewers, but breweries are still contributing to the economy By Chris Miller


n the last year, Oregonians have lost a few heritage craft breweries. Portland’s BridgePort Brewing closed after 35 years. Both Portland Brewing and Widmer Brothers closed their brewpubs. In Central Oregon, RiverBend Brewing also closed its brewpub, and Smith Rock Brewing shuttered its doors—but these losses were offset by growth, and according to industry insiders, beer is still flowing and contributing billions into the U.S. economy. The Oregon Brewers Guild listed 24 breweries in Bend and 33 in Central Oregon as of June 2018—but since that time, Boss Rambler Beer Club and Bevel Craft Brewing have opened in Bend. Redmond has seen new breweries including Initiative Brewing, Geist Beerworks and Porter Brewing opening up—and even Madras has gotten into the brewery scene, with Madras Brewing Co. opening its doors this spring on Southwest Fourth Street. Pro disc golfer Valarie Doss, along with her husband, Nate Doss, started

Bevel Craft Brewing, which opened this spring in the 9th Street Village near the corner of Northeast Wilson Avenue and Northeast Ninth Street. Bevel is a small brewery—operating on a seven-barrel system, which can run double batches. As a comparison, Deschutes Brewing could output 50-barrel batches before its expansion in 2012 to 105,000 barrels. Doss said they decided to come to Bend because they wanted to be in a place where people love craft beer. They put the brewery on the east side of town so it could be like a “local bar” where people could come for lunch and a great pint of beer. “We want to maintain that local vibe and support the local events that are happening,” Doss said. This May, Beer Serves America released its 2018 study on the U.S. beer industry’s economic contribution. According to the report, the beer industry contributed $328 billion in economic output—equal to 1.6% of the U.S. gross domestic product. Beer’s production and distribution reaches 514 of the 536 sectors of the U.S. economy.

Bevel Craft Brewing is one of Bend's newer breweries, which opened this past spring.

In Oregon, the brewing industry employed roughly 31,000 people in 2016, according to a 2017 report from the Oregon Brewers Guild. The beer industry creates 2.1 million jobs nationwide, including 912,000 retail jobs and 141,600 distribution jobs, according to the Beer Serves America report. In Oregon, where craft breweries reign supreme, beer’s economic input was about $2 million in 2018, according to information from the Oregon Brewers Guild. The 284 Oregon breweries—at the time of the report—produced over 1 million barrels of craft beer, or 9.9 gallons of beer per person of legal drinking age. Not only does beer create jobs, but it brings in visitors, as well. The Oregon Brewers Guild report said that about 370,000 people visited an Oregon

brewery or brewpub on a weekly basis in 2016, or about 19 million total visitors during the year. Zach Beckwith, the head brewer of Bend Brewing Company—Bend’s second oldest brewery to Deschutes Brewing—said the brewing industry is a mainstay in Bend. “The beauty of beer is that it’s wide ranging,” Beckwith said. “You have working-man’s beer and $400-a-plate dinner beers and everything in between.” Beckwith said even though the brewery expanded its production capability, part of Bend Brewing’s longevity is because deep down, it’s still a brewpub first and a distributer of beer second. “We’re a 25-year-old brewery that’s kind of hitting its stride right now,” Beckwith said.


Bend Changes Bulbs as Climate Plans Take Shape

City of Bend

City switches street lights to more efficient bulbs; community tackles bigger tasks



end begins switching its street lights to LEDs this week—part of a broader effort to reduce the city’s fossil fuel use and grow more resilient in a warming climate. The move changes the light fixtures of about 2,300 street lights on public roads to light-emitting diode fixtures. The new LED lights use up to 50% less energy and last longer than the existing high-pressure sodium bulbs, according to the City of Bend. City officials expect the switch to save nearly 1 million kilowatt hours and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 619 tons each year. “We’re excited about that one,” Cassie Lacy, Bend’s sustainability coordinator, said of the LED project. She noted additional benefits of safety, with a brighter white light from the LEDs; and of less light pollution, with a design that better focuses light down and shields it from spreading upward into the night sky. Work will take place from 7am to 7pm on weekdays and could include weekends. Crews will finish about 30 to 40 fixtures each day, taking about half an hour to switch each light. The project may require temporarily closing road lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes or parking next to the lights that crews are working on, but will not typically require shutting off power. Work could finish by the end of the year. The project will not add any new street lights and doesn’t include about 250 city street lights that already

use LEDs. The project also excludes more than 500 street lights in Bend that stand along state highways or private roads. Existing LED streetlights can be seen on 14th Street between Simpson and Galveston avenues. Plans take shape The project is part of a broader Bend effort toward sustainability. In 2016, the City Council passed a resolution setting climate action goals to reduce fossil fuel use in city facilities and operations by 40% by 2030 and 70% by 2050; to reduce community-wide fossil fuel use by those same amounts and dates; and to make city facilities and operations “carbon neutral” by 2030. To meet those goals, Bend is crafting both a strategic energy management plan to guide city operations and facilities, and a community climate action plan to guide efforts in the residential and commercial sectors. Both plans are expected by the fall. The city’s internal strategic energy management plan will address city efforts such as buying renewable energy, changing the city vehicle fleet, reducing energy use in water filtration and waste water treatment plants and setting standards or policies for procuring equipment. The street light project falls in a subset of projects the city decided to move forward with earlier this year—a $3.8 million effort that includes installing solar panels, updating heating and cooling

An interactive map at the City of Bend’s website tracks the city’s work converting its streetlights to LEDs.

systems, improving energy efficiency and saving water at city facilities. City officials expect annual savings from lower energy costs to fully cover the costs of those projects. For the community side of things, a plan is taking solid shape and could go before the City Council for approval in the fall. Earlier this year, a city survey on Bend’s climate efforts prompted responses from more than 1,500 people. Results showed more support for steps that create incentives or financial savings over regulatory actions or those that could mean costs for residents, according to city data. Responses also showed support for investments in areas like public transportation and energy efficiency that could yield long-term benefits. The Climate Action Steering Committee has been working on a Community Climate Action Plan for more than a year and has recommended a total of 15 strategies in four topic areas: energy supply; energy use in commercial, residential and industrial buildings; transportation; and waste and materials.

• Improve education and outreach on energy efficiency • Offer incentives and revolving loan funds for energy efficiency projects • Start a home energy score program • Create an energy audit program • Develop community solar, microgrid and battery storage projects • Expand transit service An online forum for public comment closes on July 31, marking the final round of public input in developing the plan before it heads to the Council— although public participation will continue on the proposal that the Council winds up considering. “It’s the last opportunity for the public to help craft the strategies,” Lacy said. A public session about the city and community plans with a subset of City Council members will take place on July 30, a new forum meant to provide a chance for Council members, committees and city staff to discuss a subject in a less formal way than through presentations at regular Council meetings. That session will start at 3 pm at City Hall. To comment on the community climate action plan’s strategies, visit https://

Judge orders state DEQ to do more to shield salmon streams 9 VOLUME 23 ISSUE 30 / JULY 25, 2019 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Ruling says state is not doing enough to protect endangered species from harmful effects of logging District Judge Marco A. Hernández is ordering the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality to do more to protect salmon streams harmed Courtesy Metro by logging operations. He ruled in June in a clean water lawsuit filed by environmentalists that has been winding through the courts since 2012. The plaintiffs claimed the DEQ is not doing enough to protect salmon threatened by common logging practices, such as the removal of shade trees that cool water temperatures in mountain streams where salmon reside. They said the DEQ sometimes even allows stream temperatures to rise to levels lethal to salmon, a violation of federal environmental laws. The DEQ said it will abide by the judge’s orders, but the timber industry suggests that the water quality of streams in forests is excellent. – Paul Koberstein, Portland Tribune

Oregon’s Business Tax is Not Going to Voters—Here’s What You Should Know With the announcement this week from business group Oregon Manufacturers and Commerce that they are no longer attempting to refer the state’s new commercial activities tax to the ballot, the tax is likely to go into effect on Jan. Marco Verch Professional Photographer 1, 2020. For companies doing business in Oregon, that could mean having to register and pay a new tax. For public school teachers and students, it means a big investment in education. Here’s a quick primer on this tax: 1.) In general, how does it work? Oregon’s new business tax, created by the Legislature this year, is not a sales tax. Instead, it’s a commercial activities tax on business transactions that take place in the state. It’s up to businesses to track their business activity and if their Oregon sales—not profits, but overall commercial sales, minus a few allowed deductions—go beyond a certain threshold, they’ll have a tax to pay. – Rob Manning, OPB

Extra Foam: Minimum Wage, Minimal Effects Minimum wage increases in Portland having no dramatic effects on employment Last week, Bloomberg reported that Seattle-based Restaurants Unlimited, with 35 eateries in Washington, Oregon and California including Henry’s Tavern, Stanford’s and Kincaid’s, Jamie Valdez sought Chapter 11 protection. A company spokesman said minimum wage hikes were partly to blame. Restaurants Unlimited’s chief restructuring officer David Bagley said, “Over the past three years, the company’s profitability has been significantly impacted by progressive wage laws along the Pacific coast that have increased the minimum wage.” The story continued: “Wage increases in Seattle, San Francisco and Portland boosted the company’s wage expenses by a total of $10.6 million through its fiscal year end 2019," Bagley said. -Joseph Gallivan, Business Tribune.

Homebrewing 101

Experienced brewers share tips for those just starting out By Keely Damara

Jim Brooks

YEARS HOMEBREWING: 4 Jim Brooks’ story starts with a farm, where he grew a lot of hops. The thing is, he didn’t grow enough hops to supply the big brewers in town like he aimed to, but he grew too much for the homebrewing community. What’s a beer lover to do? Start brewing his own beer, naturally. Turns out he’s pretty darn good at it, too. He just won

Ben Keough

YEARS HOMEBREWING: 3 After Trump was elected, Ben Keough says he needed something to keep his mind off the news. He kept busy learning the hobby of homebrewing, making beer that he couldn’t find in stores. Keough says he didn’t really make any major mistakes starting out (if only we could all be so lucky), other than discovering he needed different equipment for the type of brewing he wanted to do. He says research is key, but the first thing he learned was how easy it is to make decent beer. SW: Do you have any tips for those starting out? Ben Keough: “There’s a lot of accumulated knowledge about homebrewing that is not true. There is a lot of old wives’ tales and things that people maybe think are true that make them do a lot of stupid stuff. I would try to brew

Spencer Williams

What better place to learn about homebrewing than from a variety of brewers? Sometimes, the lessons that stick with you are learned the hard way. We asked a handful of homebrewers for some tips for those just starting out.

the 2019 Central Oregon Beer Week 2019 Pro-Am Homebrew Competition with an Australian Sparkling Pale Ale that he brewed with Tony Lawrence, brewer and owner of Boneyard Beer. Source Weekly: What did you have to learn the hard way? Jim Brooks: “Fermentation is probably the hardest part. You have to keep your temperatures right and make sure that you’re pitching enough yeast. Brewing the beer is pretty basic, but the fermentation and then bottling—everything has to be so sanitary when you’re doing the finished products. You don’t want to get any bugs in it, so that’s kind of the hardest part.”

as simply as possible and avoid all the secondary fermentation—all the extra steps that older books tell you that you have to do—and sort of pay more attention to what the forums are saying, the current knowledge. Brewing science is still advancing pretty fast and new techniques and new ideas are coming up constantly. The older homebrewing books are a good basic resource for gathering the general concept, but the specific process has changed a lot.” SW: Any specific forums you recommend? BK: “Home Brew Talk is sort of the main one— as well as the American Homebrewing Association and Beer Advocate. Reddit also has a homebrewing forum.”

YEARS HOMEBREWING: 24 Yes, that’s right—Spencer Williams has been homebrewing for over two decades, since the spry age of 15 years old. His dad introduced him to the hobby and it stuck. Williams creates much more complex brews now than he did two decades ago, and says that the Central Oregon Homebrewing Organization has been an invaluable resource to learn from others’ experiences.

Netti Knowles

YEARS HOMEBREWING: 2 Netti Knowles has brewed two batches of homebrew in her two years as a member of COHO. She says for a beginner, the club is great, since you can draw from the years of experience of other members. “Two years ago, I brewed a porter—and did a kit out of a home brew shop—and I made the mistake of leaving it in

SW: What’s something you had to learn the hard way? Spencer Williams: “Sanitation—and everyone tells you that in the beginning, but you don’t really take it serious until you screw something up and ruin beer or make beer not quite as good as it could have been. Also, patience—I used to take a lot of samples and would end up with less beer in the end than I should have had. You have friends over and you take a sample each, that’s better beer you could have been drinking if you waited another week or two to finish fermenting.”

the fermentation tanks for way too long. To me, it tasted like soy sauce, but everyone else said it was completely drinkable and yada yada. That was my first batch I did, and then my second batch I did a hazy IPA and that one turned out wonderfully. It was like the perfect tropical fruitiness that I look for in an IPA, and it was slightly hazy and it was called Once Upon a Haze. I brewed both times with members of COHO and so they were able to help me and walk me through every single thing.”

Behind the Stainless Curtain Asking local brewers the unasked questions By Zach Beckwith, Head Brewer, Bend Brewing Company

Describe the BEST part of your day. Pat Shea (Senior brewer for Three Creeks Brewing, 23-year industry veteran, mayoral candidate for the City of Sisters, garage bar publican): When the kitchen puts out the daily bacon to cool. It’s my mid-morning snack.

Tonya Cornett (R&D brewmaster for 10 Barrel Brewing, 20+ year industry veteran, international beer celebrity and movie star): Brew days are the best days. Tyler West (Head brewer for Goodlife Brewing, industry veteran, avid outdoorsman, lager enthusiast): Beer:30, duh! Describe the WORST part of your day. Tyler West: Carrying all that free, heavy beer to my truck and having to unload it all by myself when I get home! Tonya Cornett: Because 10 Barrel has grown so quickly, communication has become difficult. What used to be an email or a casual conversation with one person has become an e-mail to five or more people. The added

paperwork and layers of communication can be frustrating at times. Pat Shea: Lifting kegs. They don’t get lighter as you get older.


Fill in the blank: The beer industry today needs more _____and less ______ Tyler West: More lager; less fruity, milk-shaky, glittery, hazy… Tonya Cornett: More quality breweries; fewer quantity Pat Shea: More hard-working brewers; fewer prima donnas Pants tucked into your boots, or over the boots? Tonya Cornett: I know they should always be outside of your boots for safety, but I hate wet Courtesy 10 Barrel Brewing

Three Creeks Senior Brewer Pat Shea brews in Sisters.

What beer have you made that you loved but didn’t sell? Tyler West: I made a Smoked Helles One Time, and people either loved or hated it. Though it was a well-made beer for the style, most people hated it!

GoodLife Head Brewer Tyler West, left, visits with musician G. Love. The two collaborated on G. Love's Special Sauce IPA.

What’s your favorite base malt and why? Pat Shea: Gambrinus Pale Malt Tonya Cornett: Lately I am loving Weyermann Floor Malted Pilsner. It’s a softer version of pilsner malt with less astringency and grassy/hay characteristics. Tyler West: German Pilsner, because of the unique flavor qualities, crisp and refreshing.



eing a brewer is often glamorized. People envision brewers sitting around, drinking beer all day long—but the reality is, being a brewer involves very little sitting, and the only beer drinking occurs when the work is done. It’s a physically demanding manual labor job in hot, wet conditions, working with dangerous cleaning chemicals for long hours. It demands a working understanding of chemistry, engineering, thermal dynamics, government regulations and more. Despite the myriad intricacies of the job and diverse philosophies and techniques brewers employ, more often than not we’re asked the same few questions year after year: “Do you get free beer?” “Is that the hops?” “What’s your favorite beer?” “What are you working on next?” “Can you load that keg you’re moving into my car? (haha)” Brewers have been conditioned to chuckle and smile kindly to these questions while giving a stock answer they’ve rehearsed. In honor of the Source’s annual beer issue, I spoke with three local, veteran brewers to get answers to a few questions that don’t get asked.

Tonya Cornett: Spiral Staircase is a beer I thought about for at least three years. It’s based off of Lovely, a cherry Baltic porter that I brewed at Bend Brewing Company. The idea was to take this beer I loved to the next level. I’m planning on brewing it again this fall because I love the rich dessert quality and the depth of chocolate and cherry flavors. I have had a few beer aficionados tell me it may possibly be the best beer they have ever had and that makes me incredibly happy. Pat Shea: Ridgetrail ESB was great for the style but didn’t sell, probably because of the word “bitter” in the name. I once read a quote from John Keeling of Fuller’s where he said that, “You aren’t a proper brewery without a brewing philosophy.” What’s your brewing philosophy, in three words? Tonya Cornett: Fresh, technically sound, thought provoking (editor’s note: that’s more than three words, but we’ll allow it). Pat Shea: Trust the process. Tyler West: Learn every day.

Longtime Beer Slinger …who still loves his job By Richard Sitts f one sits at the bar and watches Eric Monsen work, he makes it look easy. Even as he breaks a sweat, gliding to and fro among co-workers—often much younger, he deals out smiles, greetings, handshakes and fist bumps. He says his number-one goal is to make everyone who comes through the door feel comfortable. “It’s almost like we’re playing a game at work,” he says, describing the choreography behind the bar. But when approached with a request for an interview, the longtime Bend Brewing Company bartender responded in his usual modest fashion: “Why? I sling beers,” he answered, with his broad smile. He’s been at it for the past 18 years and says he still looks forward to going to work every day. “It’s a real family atmosphere. There’s a lot of love, and it’s a tight-knit group. It’s a great place to be,” Monsen says. BBC is Bend’s second-oldest brewery, opened in 1995. In 1998, Monsen applied for a prep cook job, which he did for about three years. Monsen admits he’s a “people person” and decided that he should be behind the bar. He’s been there ever since. During that time, BBC has had two award-winning head brewers hired away. And then the brewery changed ownership nearly four years ago. After the initial shock, Monsen says the change turned out to be a “best-case scenario.” He says the

Purveyor of pints Eric Monsen has long held court at Bend Brewing Company.

new owners are “awesome people” who bought the long-barren empty lot next door, allowing BBC to expand toward the Deschutes River. “They came in with respect and were kind and listened to everyone and made all the right changes and so many improvements,” Monsen says. “I still love it. There’s a culture there. It has a lot of soul, and I want to maintain that. It’s just really cool. I’ve seen a lot of change in this time, but the one thing that has remained consistent is that we still make really good beer.”

Monsen says he used to be an IPA guy, but these days he prefers a hoppy pale ale. Still, some habits are hard to break. BBC’s own Tropic Pines Juicy IPA “is my favorite beer in town,” he adds. Monsen says the people he’s met and the friendships he’s made over the years keep him happily coming into work five days a week. That doesn’t mean there are no trying times, he readily admits, like when there’s “100 glasses that need to be washed, customers are backed up to the door, and everyone wants their


beer NOW,” he says. Monsen is equally friendly to loyal locals and impatient tourists alike. “Your day is not going to ruin my day. I’m still going to do my best.” BBC becomes his “happy place” when he gets to crank up the tunes and the bar’s huge picture windows open up to utopian river views, creating a “soulful vibe,” he adds. How many customers’ names has he memorized over the years? Too many to remember. Monsen was born in Coos Bay, Oregon, but grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. He was a recreation and tourism management major at the University of Oregon when he landed an internship at Mt. Bachelor. That was 1992, when he says the population was 24,000. The work hours infringed on his love of skiing, which he started at the age of 5. Monsen says he likes the flexibility of his current job, which allowed him to ski 50 days this past season. Whenever he travels, Monsen says he’s always ready to return to Central Oregon’s clean air and good-tasting water. “I love this place. I freaking love it. I get to live in a great place. Life is good.” To cap things off, I asked the ludicrous question of how many pints he thinks he’s poured over the years. Monsen whipped his phone into calculator mode and came up with an estimate: Two and a half million beers. Cheers to that!

Do Post-Race Beers Slow Us Down? When it comes to beer and sport, a look at how much is too much By Peter Madsen

Post-race RPMs While tying one on after satisfying races is tempting —“We totally slayed our age groups! The next pitcher is on me!”—doing so hinders recovery, says Tim Burnett, a kinesiology instructor at Oregon State University-Cascades. “Alcohol has been shown to inhibit the recovery process, which is based in inflammation repair and protein synthesis—making new proteins that are going to be more useful for doing better work,” Burnett said. However, the extent of the hinderance hinges on several factors: How much you’re drinking, how much you’re working out and the relation of these two things to each other. A higher alcohol tolerance from consistent drinking is another factor, Burnett said. Because there are so many variables, very little scientific literature on this topic exists, Burnett added. “In general, we can say that chronic heavy drinking is going to be detrimental to training,” Burnett said. But isn’t beer “liquid bread,” providing much-needed carbohydrates? “You could make a very bad argument about alcohol having the carbohydrates

you need for recovery,” Burnett said with a laugh. Alcohol’s impediment of the protein repair process cancels out most nutritional value of beer, Burnett said. Rallying while hung over Let’s try another scenario the drinking athlete encounters: You’re hung over before a morning group bike ride. Burnett says you’re at several disadvantages, beginning with the fact there is less blood in your body. “One of the primary drivers of high VO2 Max is high blood volume,” Burnett said. “That’s one of the adaptations we see in people going from couch potato to running a marathon—they get expanded amounts of blood, which means they can deliver more oxygen and do more work. The problem with ingesting alcohol before exercise is that alcohol is a diuretic—you lose blood volume. And that blood volume is directly related to your ability to work.” That’s just the beginning. One of the byproducts of our body breaking down ethanol—the type of alcohol in our booze—is a molecule called acetaldehyde, Burnett explained, that is the primary driver of the crappy feelings we have when we’re hung over. “It’s a misconception that you feel bad because of dehydration,” Burnett said. “If [you’re toeing the line of a] marathon, and not feeling good in the first place, that’s going to have a huge psychological effect on your ability to perform, regardless of fluid or difficulty regulating your temperature because you can’t sweat as well.” Still, many athletes have personal anecdotes about hammering out a

great performance even though they raged the night before. Burnett was reminded of a friend who partied the night before he won a marathon. “The detrimental effects are on a spectrum,” Burnett said. “I was absolutely astounded (by my friend’s race). Would he have been able to do better if he didn’t drink the night before? Absolutely. But he was at a fitness level that it did not matter—for that marathon at least.” Burnett elaborates. As you look at the tiers of athleticism, from Drinking and sports: Still a question of how much and when. Smoking, however?

end is home to people who love outdoorsy endurance sports as much as they do beer. It’s not uncommon to see competitive runners or cyclists, for example, celebrating hard races or workouts with beers. Some drinking athletes believe you can burn off whatever crap you throw in the furnace, so long as it burns hot enough. But at what point does too much consistent alcohol consumption—punctuated with big, boozy nights out—begin to cancel out the quality work you put in on the saddle.

Carrying the Torch

Christone “Kingfish” Ingram is the next great blues star By Isaac Biehl Zan Mostow

Source Weekly: It’s been a little over two months now since you put out your debut album. How’s it feel to have that out and for the world to hear it? Kingfish: Man, it’s been great. I’m normally known for the covers I do, but it’s great to finally have original music out and everything, and show the world what’s going on in my head. SW: What’s the feedback been like at shows? Is everyone getting involved in the songs? KF: Yeah, everyone has been enjoying it from both sides—the old blues guys to the new school. Everyone’s been loving it.

SW: Taking it back, do you remember the first piece of music you heard that inspired you to jump into this world? KF: I’m more gospel influenced, but blues and gospel– there’s not that much of a difference. I heard my mom and all of her family singing and preaching in church so I was around that. I didn’t get into the blues until like later– like 5, 6, 7. I got into it with my dad with him showing me a PBS documentary of Muddy Waters. SW: And from there you started picking up instruments? KF: Oh yessir, yessir. After my dad showed me the Muddy Waters documentary he took me to the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale [Mississippi] and they showed him the arts and education program, and the room with all the instruments. He enrolled me in the program and I started playing bass and guitar and that was it. SW: What’s it been like getting to work so closely with Buddy Guy? KF: Man, it was great! Just to be around all of that wisdom and learn things from him on stage and learn things about the business—it was great. SW: You’re also going to go out on tour with Vampire Weekend in August. Are you excited for that? KF: Yeah man, yeah man. It’s going to be a whole different scenery. I can’t wait to see that! SW: I’ve been reading some articles about you and many people are calling you the torch carrier for the future of blues. Does that add pressure to what



fter landing in St. Louis for his rooftop show at the Angad Arts Hotel, Christone Ingram was able to squeeze in a few moments of his time with the Source. While he’s only 20 years old, the man people call Kingfish creates and performs like a seasoned veteran. There’s a reason why outlets including Rolling Stone are calling him “the blues savior,” and why he’ll be opening for Vampire Weekend on their Father Of The Bride tour. His debut album, aptly titled, “Kingfish,” is pure excellence. It’s 12 songs of groovy, swinging blues that never stop. My personal favorite on the record is “Listen” featuring Keb’Mo’– an ultrasmooth jam that captures the warmth of love and emphasizes the importance of trusting your heart. Read our Q&A below and check out his tunes to learn why Central Oregon is so lucky to have Kingfish at the Sisters Rhythm & Brews Festival this year.

“Kingfish” is available for streaming on Spotify and Apple Music.

you’re doing or does it make you excited for the future? KF: Honestly, both. I just try to not think about it and just do my part, you know? [Laughs].

Band Fact Sheet: The Beths


New Zealand rockers roll into Bend By Isaac Biehl

From left, The Beths is a group of Kiwis that includes Ben Sinclair, Jonathan Peace and Elizabeth Stokes.


ndie rock, pop-rock or whatever you want to call it is fine... The Beths are just good at it. For only releasing their debut album last August, the trio is making plenty of headlines. From being named Paste’s Best New Artists of 2018 and receiving an album review score of 7.9 by Pitchfork, there isn’t a lot more a band could ask for in its early days. “Future Me Hates Me” is 10 tracks long and filled with great songwriting from frontwoman Elizabeth Stokes. She has a knack for touching on themes in life, that, while they appear simple on the surface, are rather quite daunting for

many—especially those still growing up. You’ll get a taste of punk one song and find yourself cozying up with folk elements the next. Maybe even both together. It’s this finesse crafted in their sound that make The Beths fun to listen to. Learn more about the trio before they make their way to Bend with this Band Fact Sheet. The Beths

He offers scenic balloon flights over the spectacular landscape of the high desert and also manages a corporate balloon program for RE/MAX International throughout the Pacific Northwest.

During his career as a pilot, Brann Smith has flown in seven states; Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and now California. Currently residing in Chico, California, Smith is again flying as a business and giving back to the community where he grew up. He hopes to share the joy and serenity of floating through the air with as many people as he can, hoping to inspire the feeling of freedom and adventure in the hearts of others that it brings him.

Residing in West Glacier, Montana next to Glacier National Park, and primarily flying in the Flathead Valley of Montana, Casey pilots the “Back to the Future” Balloon — which is a Cameron Concept 80 balloon. Casey received his private pilot’s license in 2015. Although a relatively new balloon pilot, Casey had previously acquired a lot of experience with hot air balloons back in the 1990’s for 5 years as a crew chief with corporate balloons operated by Renaissance Balloons based out of Michigan.

Well-Crafted Philanthropy

A toast to beers that give back in Central Oregon By K.M. Collins K.M. Collins

Honey Rasberry Pils at Craft Kitchen and Brewery benefits Soroptimist International of Bend.

working to improve the lives of women and girls in local communities and throughout the world. Central Oregon projects include The Loft, Grandma’s House, Nancy’s House, Bethlehem Inn and Tech Trek (a program that helps teenage girls become more involved in their schools’ STEM programs). CRUX FERMENTATION PROJECT Crux donates $1 per hectoliter (100 liters) of all beer sold back to the community. This year, that amounted to a little over $16,000. The funds have gone to causes including the Conservation Alliance and Pacific Crest Trail

Open Seven Days a Week

Association, tied to their PCT Porter. Crux was one of many local breweries that took part in the Resilience IPA fundraiser, in which funds went to support victims of the Camp Fire in Paradise, California. DESCHUTES BREWERY Tuesday is Community Pint Night at every Deschutes Brewery pub and tasting room, where $1 from every pint sold is donated to a rotating nonprofit. In addition, this year Deschutes Brewery released canned water, in an effort to address overuse of plastic (non-recyclable) water

bottles on the urban Deschutes River float. Deschutes’ canned water containers can be recycled or returned to the brewery for $1 off a pint. MONKLESS BELGIAN ALES One night a month, Monkless gives $1 from every full pour, growler and flight to a local nonprofit. Beneficiaries have included Pet Evacuation Team, Central Oregon Homebrewers Organization, Deschutes River Conservancy and Bend Science Station. Earlier this year, Monkless also hosted a Girl Scout Cookie Pairing to support a local Girl Scout and her troop, as well as a Deschutes Children’s Foundation Annual Fundraiser/ Silent Auction where they poured beer for attendees. SHADE TREE BREWING Shade Tree is another brewery that brewed a small batch of Sierra Nevada’s Resilience IPA recipe for the Camp Fire victims. They also brewed Man from Lamonta Pale Ale for Central Oregon Beer Week hosted at Boneyard, to benefit the Central Oregon Brewer’s Guild and the Central Oregon Homebrewers Organization. WILD RIDE BREWING Brewing Brenna A Amber Lager, since fall 2017, for which a portion of proceeds have been donated to the ALS Therapy Development Institute, amounting to $20,000 across Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska. To raise funds and awareness, Wild Ride also hosts Brenna A Bingo nights. This beer was born of a partnership with Capt. Sean Dwyer from the show, “Deadliest Catch,” whose father passed away from ALS.



ut into your mind the shaky, Irish-Catholic voice of John F. Kennedy saying something like, “And so my fellow Bendites: Ask not what beer can do for you, but what the money you spend on beer can do for the community?” Not every drinker in Central Oregon has knowledge about hops or IBUs or the finer points of preserving beer for colonial exploits across the Atlantic—but in honor of this year’s Beer Issue, you can be a beer drinker with a conscience. On that note, we’ve compiled a list of breweries that routinely giving back to the community. THE ALE APOTHECARY Barmhouse is a barrel-matured farmhouse ale blend, created in compilation with Block 15 Brewing Company in Corvallis. Proceeds for the beer go to The Bethlehem Inn. The Ale Apothecary’s last charity beer raised over $10,000 for the Boys & Girls Club. The Ale Apothecary also hosts a monthly tasting room pop up locals’ night aimed at supporting local nonprofits. CRAFT KITCHEN AND BREWERY Honey, I Razzed the Angels is a honey raspberry Pilsner, created in compilation with Central Oregon Beer Angels, which benefits Soroptimist International of Bend. “This is a damn fine beer. Seriously. Your taste buds will wish they had taste buds,” notes the release party Facebook page.

A stroll through town to find art currently on display


often hear people say, “I don’t understand art—I just know what I like.” As an arts educator, this is always my opportunity to jump in, because the truth is, knowing what you like is the point of art. It gives us language to see ourselves and the world and how we go together. This week, I took a stroll downtown to just “see what I like.” Donald Yatomi On display at Peterson Roth Gallery Yatomi’s ability to deeply express what can appear to be mundane moments is the thing I love about his art. It reminds us that there is “poetry light.” There’s intimacy in the everyday. The deep, thick strokes of his work give a richness and importance to the subject. The paintings currently on display are all places in Bend, but they’re not exactly the places we’re used to seeing portrayed. My particular favorite is the “Laundromat 029,” which looks like you’re standing at the back of Sip-n-Suds, adjacent to the M&J Tavern. The Peterson-Roth Gallery will feature Yatomi’s work in August,

showcasing 12+ paintings, with an opening reception during First Friday, Aug. 2.

Wooden Jewel—a new space on Bond Street—with his wife, Denise.

Michael Bryant On display at The Wooden Jewel Tucked in the back of The Wooden Jewel are two contemporary sculptures made of wood. At first glance, I thought perhaps there was damage to the sculpture, but no— rather, the artist, Michael Bryant, has sculpted a modern, geometric piece from walnut leaving the natural flaws of the wood, giving it room to breathe and feel organic. I was struck by seeing that Bryant’s other work varied so much from these two pieces. With a huge range of talent, his realistic sculptures of animals are quite impressive. Bryant owns The

Alisa Looney On display at The Red Chair Gallery Whenever I walk into Red Chair Gallery, I’m struck by the high level of craftsmanship in Central Oregon. Red Chair is an artist-run gallery. One artist that popped out for me on this visit was Alisa Looney, and especially, her works of enamel (glass) on steel. The effect, combined with her light, playful illustrative style, makes these metal sculptures feel like they’ve popped off the page of a storybook. Looney’s work has movement in it that feels graceful and playful. While her work at Red Chair is primarily these small pieces,

Looney also works on large-scale public pieces, displayed on her website, and also teaches courses in her unique technique. Donald Yatomi

A Community Thread: Ashlee Davis By Joshua Langlais Editor’s note: Joshua Langlais is a local photographer and the creator of A Community Thread, a project for which he interviews folks on the subject of community, its importance and how we function as individuals within it. This is an excerpt from his interview with Ashlee Davis in May. Ashlee is a middle school counselor and describes herself as lighthearted and compassionate and an advocate for kids and teenagers. A Community Thread: What breaks your heart or concerns you in a way that affects you personally? And what motivates you to do something about it? Ashlee Davis: It’s a lot of little things that break my heart. The thing that probably I am faced with every day is a lack of tolerance and a lack of compassion. I don’t think it’s apathy; sometimes it’s just accepted as the status quo. Working in a middle school, I think sometimes when we see a lack of tolerance it’s often met with, Boys will be boys or That’s how girls treat each other is with drama and meanness. That breaks my heart, because I don’t believe that’s the case. I believe that people are capable of more and that we have to expect more from each other—to have more compassion and tolerance and empathy for each other. I have intolerance for lack of tolerance and compassion.

ACT: As you make your way through your daily routines, what do other people mean to you? AD: They mean connection and they mean that we’re kind of all in this together. It’s cool that we don’t have to go through life alone. And I think we need each other. I really do. I like that connection to other people because it’s how we learn. We see ourselves in others. We see a need. ACT: What does community mean to you? And what does it mean to you to be part of a community with opinions or agendas that go against yours? AD: Being aware and having your eyes open is oftentimes painful and hard. It’s so much easier to have your head in the sand and not notice things around you and not put a lot of thought into the human behind the bill passed, the law passed, the human behind the mistake, the human behind the future wall. It’s easier to not look at that. As humans we have a tendency to protect ourselves—to just not pay attention to those things. Because it’s hard and it’s uncomfortable. We also want to be able to control and fix. And oftentimes we can’t control and fix those bigger issues or that pain. But I think one of the most beautiful things about humans that





“We have to teach our kids about how to talk about gender and sexuality and race and ethnicity, and conversations that make people uncomfortable that we don’t know how to talk about.” —Ashlee Davis Joshua Langlais

separates us from any other species is that we have the ability to feel deeply. And that even means hurting and sadness and all those uncomfortable things that we want to avoid. But that’s what brings us together. That’s what connects us. That’s what community means to me is that I can empathize or imagine or feel for or think about someone on the other side of the ocean that is living in a developing country underneath a piece of cardboard. And I can think about that mom from El Salvador that is sending her child to the United States and that pain that she must feel. It’s not solving the problem just thinking about it and knowing that we’re all connected, but community is having your eyes open and your heart open and knowing and understanding what people are going through around the globe and right here under our feet in Bend, Oregon. No matter where you live or what your experience is, there are certain things we can’t escape from. We can’t

escape from pain; we can’t escape from struggle. And that’s community. We can all find joy and happiness and love and all of those beautiful pieces, as well. If I’m gonna live in this world with people that are different than me, it helps to understand why. Trying to understand the why behind it and 90% of the time recognizing that people respond and react in the ways that they do because they’re trying to protect something that’s valuable to them. And it doesn’t make it right, but it just helps build that understanding. We have to talk about these really hard conversations in schools. We have to teach our kids about how to talk about gender and sexuality and race and ethnicity, and conversations that make people uncomfortable that we don’t know how to talk about. And they want to. They want to know those pieces. I think it’s possible. I believe in humanity. But it takes work. It’s hard. Read or listen to the entire interview at

Navarra started the original Prost! location in Seattle in 2002, and eventually opened other locations around the Northwest. Prost! in Bend will feature an outdoor “biergarten” and all-German beers—each served in a glass specific to that style of beer. The food menu will be German, too, drawing from the menus of the Portland Prost! and Stammtisch.

Oregon brewers begin a pivot to convenience cocktails


By Lisa Sipe Lisa Sipe





12 years in a row!

1004 NW Newport Avenue in Bend

Mixed drinks to go—can you dig it?!

o you remember when Oregon-based Copa Di Vino and its on-the-go premium glass of wine was rejected on Shark Tank? It was 2011 and the idea of having a convenient glass of wine anywhere and anytime was fairly revolutionary. Back then, easy options—specifically in cans, were dominated by beer. Now, almost all of people’s favorite alcoholic beverages come in a can, including cocktails. Entering the ready-to-drink cocktail category are Oregon brewers 10 Barrel and Rogue Ales & Spirits. “We love beer, but we also enjoy drinks that are not beer,” said 10 Barrel Brewing Co-Founder Jeremy Cox. “Some people love beer, others don’t, and some can’t drink it due to gluten allergies. By adding cocktails (and cider!) to our portfolio, we’re able to provide a wide range of awesome, high quality beverages for our drinkers.” 10 Barrel went after popular cocktails in their offerings: Greyhound, Bloody Mary, Moscow Mule and Margarita. The vodka cocktails are made in partnership with Bend-based Oregon Spirit Distillers. All flavors, besides the tequila-based margarita (available in classic, mango and pineapple serrano) are available year-round. Campers, river floaters and backyard relaxers beware: these cocktails have a high alcohol by volume, ranging from 10% to 11.8%—so don’t match your beer drinking buddies unless they’re putting back something like a 10 Barrel Dub Double IPA. On the slightly lighter side, coming in at 7.5% ABV, are sparkling canned cocktails from Rogue Spirits.

Voted Bend’s 541.318.6224

“As brewers, we love the convenience of beer in a can, and as distillers we enjoy the complex flavor profiles of a good mixed drink,” said Rogue President Dharma Tamm. “Launching a line of canned cocktails just felt right.” With 16 years in the distilling business, the Rogue team had hand-distilled spirits from its 550-gallon still to use when developing its first three ready-to-drink cocktails: Lime Gin Fizz, Cranberry Elderflower Vodka Soda and Ginger Lime Vodka Mule. “Our canned cocktails embody the spirit of the DIY ethos of mixology,” said Rogue Director of Business Development Steve Garrett. “They allow us to celebrate our craft spirits heritage and can be enjoyed no matter the occasion.” After Aug. 1, you’ll be able to purchase Rogue’s sparkling canned cocktails in Oregon liquor stores. Applicable to any spirit available in Oregon, if you can’t find what you want, simply ask the liquor store to order it for you. Having only tasted the 10 Barrel Greyhound and Moscow Mule, the canned versions don’t compare to a regular mixed cocktail. Unlike beer, wine and cider, cocktails are made with fresh ingredients, prepared a la minute, and you can’t get that same taste in a can. What I do like is the ease of use. With these simple canned beverages, I can plunge my hand into an ice-filled cooler while picnicking along the tropical blue waters of Clear Lake and get the satisfaction of a cold, refreshing cocktail.



Cocktails Get Canned

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic ALADDIN: With Guy Ritchie in the director’s chair, here’s hoping he can add some of that “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” magic to a remake already lacking the brilliance of Robin Williams. Will Smith might be a good choice for the genie, but the special effects look downright ridiculous. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

CRAWL: A house fills with water and alligators while a young woman and her injured father are stuck inside. I’m really excited to see this one as the reviews are mostly positive and it looks like an intense thrill ride from top to bottom. From the director of the terrifying remake of “The Hills Have Eyes.” See full review on p45. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX DARK PHOENIX: Hey look, another adaptation of the “Dark Phoenix Saga,” a much beloved comic arc from the 1980s. I wonder if they’ll get it right this time? It can’t be worse than “X-Men: The Last Stand,” can it? Oh, sweet summer child. It can always get worse…especially in Hollywood. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Odem Theater Pub

ECHO IN THE CANYON: Baby Boomers need movies, too! This documentary focuses on the Laurel Canyon folk music scene of the 1960s that gave birth to bands including The Beach Boys, The Mamas and the Papas and The Byrds. Los Angeles rock documentaries have been on a roll over the last few years with classics such as “Sound City” and “The Defiant Ones,” and this looks like another winner. Tin Pan Theater, Odem Theater Pub GLORIA BELL: Julianne Moore gives one of her finest performances as a woman who finds love at a time where she was searching for anything but something serious. A surprising and heartfelt little movie. Odem Theater Pub HOTEL MUMBAI: An intense and nail-biting recreation of the terrorist attack against the Taj hotel in Mumbai. Odem Theater Pub MARY MAGDALENE: A film that portrays

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


“Thor: Ragnarok” proved anything to us, it’s that the combination of Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson is a delightful one. Sadly, “MiB4” never really cashes in on their chemistry, instead content to coast on uninspired special effects and a very out of touch script. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX,

MIDSOMMAR: American tourists head to rural Sweden to participate in a pagan midsummer festival that ends up bloody and terrifying. Aside from being a great horror movie, the film also has a lot to say about female agency, grief, trauma and the co-opting of other cultures. It’s also super gross. Fair warning. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX SPIDER-MAN: Far From Home: Marvel is fairly unstoppable at this point, so this new entry in the “Spider-Man” franchise could have Peter Parker sitting on camera reading “Twilight” and it would still make a billion dollars. Plus, this movie is super fun, and Jake G. Is a national treasure. Just sayin. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema, Odem Theater Pub STUBER: A surprisingly funny and violent time at the movies about the adventures of a cop who just had LASIK eye surgery getting driven around by a mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu who just


wants to open an all-female spinning gym. It’s definitely as dumb as it sounds, but still entertaining. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema.

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

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

THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2: The last one was surprisingly sweet and funny and this one looks like it brings more of the same sense of charm. Kevin Hart as a mildly psychotic bunny rabbit is about the most inspired casting possible, although with a voice cast also including Patton Oswalt, Hannibal Burress and Jenny Slate, the film knows how to play funny. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX TOY STORY 4: If “Toy Story 3” was about the very human fear of obsolescence, then “Toy Story 4” focuses on the idea of taking chances in life long past the point where we feel like we have nothing left to offer the world. These movies are dark and sad and weird. I hope Disney and Pixar keep making them—forever. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

YESTERDAY: Director Danny Boyle (“Train-

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

Ya Later, Alligator SCREEN See “Crawl” is a classic throwback to “Jaws” By Jared Rasic Photo courtesy of Sony



’m a grown-ass man. Yes, I spend too much money on comic books, physical media and having strangers cook me food, but I still feel like I’m more of a grown-up than I was, like, three to five years ago. I’ve seen upward of a thousand movies in theaters over the years—yet, amazingly, I had a “first-ever” moment while watching the new creature feature, “Crawl.” The setup is simple. Haley Keller is a student athlete on a swimming scholarship at the University of Florida. When a Category 5 hurricane is about to make landfall and Haley can’t get ahold of her estranged father, Dave, she heads to her childhood home to see if she can find him before everything hits the fan. She eventually finds him with a broken leg and a giant bite taken out of his shoulder in the crawlspace of the old house. For a nonstop grueling 90-minutes, Haley and Dave have to survive in a crawlspace that’s quickly filling with two things: water and gators. That’s it. That’s the movie. So, back to my first-ever moment. Fifteen minutes into the movie there’s a bigass alligator between Haley and the stairs leading out of the crawlspace. Her idea is to creep slowly around the side of the gator while poking it with a stick, while she uses her athletic speed to juke past it and get up the stairs. Right as she turns to move past it, THERE’S A SECOND ALLIGATOR STANDING THERE, hissing and whatnot. Sitting there in the nice, air-conditioned theater, like a child seeing “Jurassic Park” for the first time, I screamed “HOLY SHIT!” as loud as I could. I didn’t mean to or want to, but the words were ripped out of me without giving

So, I know it looks like she’s in trouble, but all I really care about is whether the dog survives.

me any choice in the matter. I certainly did not sound like a grown man. The thing that makes “Crawl” work so well is that Haley and Dave are genuinely likable, well-drawn characters. Their estrangement is realistic and I wanted them to survive so they could fix their relationship. Also, aside from Haley and Dave, the only other character stuck in the nightmare known as Florida is the family dog, Sugar. I was so paranoid that Sugar was about to

become a gator snack that my fingers left dents in my armrest. Right now, in a horror environment where “elevated” horror movies including “Midsommar,” “Hereditary” and “The Witch” can dominate the multiplex, it’s nice to see an unpretentious horror movie that just wants to scare the crap out of you using every trick in the book. “Crawl” obviously isn’t going to end up being the best film of the year, but it’s easily the most fun I’ve had in the theater in quite some time.

Get your life back in focus. With the most advanced surgical techniques for cataract and LASIK surgery, Dr. Ida Alul and Dr. Patricia Buehler will help you say goodbye to your glasses or contacts — and hello to the beauty around you. / 541-318-8388 Patricia Buehler, MD .

I might be a grown-ass man, but I like my pleasures simple. Alligator movies, shark movies and monster movies have held a place in my heart since “Jaws,” and if I have to sacrifice that love in order to grow up, then consider my development permanently arrested.. Crawl

Of Pandoras and Other Moths

By Isaac Biehl

Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe

An outbreak of Pandora moths, when they weren’t expected By Jim Anderson

2019 Subaru Outside Games

F Watch where you step during a Pandora outbreak.

eucalyptus. I still get a funny feeling in my tummy thinking back on those interesting times. I don’t know if you’ve ever given any thought to the process of metamorphosis—when the Pandora moth larva builds the outer shell, it will change inside from a wiggly caterpillar to an adult insect that has the ability to fly and mate. (In butterflies, the shell is known as a chrysalis; in moths, a cocoon.) The adults emerge, and as they age, their calendar of life triggers the recognition of sex, and the females begin to put off a perfume known as a pheromone—chemicals capable of acting like hormones outside the body of the secreting individual, to impact the behavior of the receiving individuals. Adult male moths go nuts over it, and can sense it from several miles away, especially if there’s a breeze. When I was a kid on my grandfather’s farm in Connecticut, I woke up one summer night in the upstairs bedroom to the

sound of soft thumping on the screen of the open window. I discovered a Cecropia moth outside, acting like it wanted to come in the bedroom. I went and woke up my Uncle Ben, a naturalist. Throwing the sheet off himself, he said, “I don’t believe it!” I had to jump out of his way as he leapt out of bed and ran into my room. He turned to an old bureau, pulled the top drawer out, removed a cigar box, lifted the lid and out flew an adult female Cecropia moth. Yep, you guessed it. Her pheromones had drifted out of the cigar box, out of the bureau and out of the house to get the male moth all fired up. Ben stood there, exclaiming how he had collected the cocoon that fall on a trip into our kitchen garden. As for the Pandora moth, you won’t find Pandora moths in just any old place; they need the loose soils of a Ponderosa pine forest to make it from caterpillar to adult moth. Other soils won’t do. What goes on inside that cocoon after the Pandora caterpillar drops to the forest floor and buries itself in the soil is one of the miracles of nature. And speaking of soil, Once the caterpillar buries itself to the right depth in the soil, it spins a silken blanket around itself and then dissolves into kind of a green soup—but is still alive. The soup then begins to slowly reform into the adult insect. Lying there in the ground for several years, it goes from an animal with only stubby little legs to get around on, a mouth that’s formed to munch on pine needles and with a gut to digest them, and changes into the adult insect with three body parts, a whole new breathing apparatus, wings and a method to reproduce. With all that’s going on in our environment today, I hope this cycle will carry on long after we’ve gone out among the stars.

rom mountain biking to bouldering, kayaking and more, the Subaru Outside Games showcases some of Central Oregon’s favorite pasttimes while appreciating the beauty of the surrounding area. Whether you’re participating or spectating, there’s something for everyone at this outdoor celebration. The Outside Games kicks off on the banks of the Deschutes River on July 25 with Pickin’ & Paddlin,’ another classic Bend tradition held at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe.

There will also be free demos available to take out onto the water. From there follows a steady flow of activities throughout the weekend: the Deschutes River Cleanup, the third annual White Water Park Celebration, Mountain Bike Stunt/Trials Show at Mt. Bachelor, yoga outside of GoodLife brewing, dogs on paddleboards at Elk Lake Resort... and that’s just scratching the surface. Need help figuring out which events you’re going to see?

y golly, this is a strange time for Pandora moths to pop out of the woodwork—er, soil. They were here in grand numbers back in 2017, and it’s usually five to 10 years before they appear again. Must be climate change; something is taking place around us that’s favorable to this species. Meanwhile, another species is on the rampage. Over on Green Ridge, near Sisters, white Satin moths are defoliating the aspen trees, the adults making it appear as though it’s snowing in July. In past times, Pandora moths were known as a forest pest, defoliating pines about every 20 years—which ruined the attempts of foresters to grow timber. But the Native people of this region looked at them very differently. They harvested, stored and ate the larvae of these delicious moths, and as far as I know, some families still do. People collected larvae just before they were ready to pupate, before the moths began their July migration from the high green boughs to the forest floor to pupate in the soil. They’re gathered by hand once or twice a day, temporarily stored in trenches in the ground. The larvae are then roasted in fire-heated sand for 30 minutes; the sand not only cooks the insects but also serves to remove the fine hairs—setae—from their bodies. Stored in a cool and dry place, they keep for at least a year and perhaps as long as two. The dried larvae—known as piuga—are reconstituted before consumption by boiling for about an hour in plain or salted water. This reminds me of the time I spent living with an Aboriginal family on a billabong near Darwin, Australia, years ago. My host’s 14-year-old daughter, Daphne, teased me as she was chomping down on the roasted wood-boring beetle larvae she’d dug out of a

Landlord/Tenant Law: Part 2

Working with tenant-occupied properties of termination of tenancy without stated cause. This notice can be issued up to the 364th day of tenancy. This applies to both leases and month-to-month agreements. For example: A tenant moves in on Aug. 15, 2018. On Aug. 14, 2019, a landlord may issue a 30-day notice to vacate and will be valid under Oregon law. What happens when a tenant has occupied a dwelling for 365 days or more? Once a tenant has occupied for more than one year, under the new laws of SB 608, a landlord may not terminate tenancy without cause. There are only four exemptions to this law: 1. The property owner/landlord intends to demolish the unit or convert it to a use other than residential. 2. The property will undergo major repairs or renovations that will make the dwelling unfit/unsafe for occupancy. 3. The landlord or landlord’s immediate family intends to occupy the property as a primary residence. 4. The landlord is selling the property, has an accepted offer from a buyer who intends to occupy the property as their primary residence. In all of these cases, a 90-day notice must be served and in the case of exemption 4, the landlord must provide evidence of the offer to purchase within 120 days of acceptance of the offer to purchase. It’s important, when looking to purchase or sell a property that is tenant occupied, to be clear on the laws protecting tenant rights. I highly suggest working with a broker who has significant experience working with tenant occupied properties, as well as one who is well versed in landlord/tenant law. Do the research when choosing a broker; it will save tremendous headaches in the long run.

y last column on landlord/tenant law covered 24-hour notices, transfer of leases and lease buyouts. As I mentioned then, when purchasing or selling a tenant-occupied property, it’s crucial to be aware of state landlord/tenant laws. An incorrect step from a landlord can result in a massive headache and potentially financial loss. It’s also important to be aware of the new laws and regulations under SB608, the recently passed law concerning rent control, rent increases and ban on no-cause evictions. Rent Increases: Under the new laws of SB608, a landlord may only increase rental rates once per calendar year. In addition, the rental rate can only increase by 7% plus Consumer Price Index. For 2019, that dollar amount is equal to approximately 10.2% of the current rent rate. This formula and rent stabilization law apply to all landlords statewide. The only exemption to this law is landlords whose dwellings are fewer than 15 years old. Properties that are fewer than 15 years old are not held to the rent stabilization law, and as such, don’t have to abide by the 7% plus CPI standard when raising rents. It’s important to note that all rent increases must be given in writing with no fewer than 90 days’ notice. Notices of Termination: Of the questions I’m asked by buyers and sellers of tenant-occupied properties, termination of tenancy and notice of termination of tenancy tends to be one of the more confusing areas. This is particularly true under the new laws of SB 608. When a tenant has occupied the dwelling for fewer than 364 days, a landlord, under the law, can issue a 30-day notice

SCIENCE ADVICE GODDESS Bilk and Honey I’m a 27-year-old guy. I’m short,

and honestly, I’m not that physically attractive. I am nice, funny, and on the fast track in my career. My friends say bluntly that the more money I make the more women will be interested in me. I’m sure that’s true, but I’m interested in falling in love, not just finding a gold digger. Advice? — Ambitious

It would be nice if there were an easy way to identify the gold diggers — like if they showed up for dates carrying a giant golden shovel instead of a handbag they got on sale at Marshalls. The thing is, a man’s earning power has an effect on kind, loving, generous women, too, to the point that Captain America hunko Chris Evans would likely see a major dive in his sex appeal if he were more, um, Captain Coat Hanger — earning just enough to sleep on a futon in his friend’s walk-in closet. Guys sneer that women are shallow and terrible for caring about how much money men have, while many men would be just fine with dating a starving artist — a seriously hot starving artist, that is. There’s some history—evolutionary history—that explains the looks versus income difference in the sexes’ mating priorities. Ancestral women could get stuck with some bigtime costs from having sex: possibly going around pregnant for 9 months (with all the fun of digging for edible roots in between hurling from morning sickness) and then having a kid to drag around and feed. Ancestral men, however, could choose to put way less into in the reproducing thing — just dispensing with a teaspoonful of sperm and maybe a parting grunt or two. Men, in turn, evolved to prioritize hotness when seeking mates — features like youth and an hourglass figure that suggest a particular lady would be a healthy, fertile candidate for passing on their genes. And while partner-seeking ladies of course appreciate a nice view, biologists Guanlin Wang and John Speakman write that women evolved to be more “sensitive to resources that can be invested (in) themselves and their offspring” — as in whether a particular dude could bring home the bison or whatever. Wang, Speakman, and their colleagues explored the impact of “resources”—that is, a person’s economic status—on their physical appeal to the opposite sex. They showed

research participants in China, the U.S., the U.K., and Lithuania a stack of cards with images of silhouetted bodies of the opposite sex with varying levels of attractiveness and had them rank the images from most attractive to least attractive. (The researchers converted the rankings to a scale of 1 to 9.) Next, the researchers randomly assigned salary numbers to the body pix. They brought participants back— at least a week later— and again had them rate the attractiveness of the figures, but this time given the salary paired with each bod. Upon tabulating their results, they found a major sex difference in how “responsive” the Amy Alkon attractiveness ratings were to an increase in salary. If a man’s salary increases by a factor of 10— if his salary becomes 10 times greater—he goes up about 2 points (1.92 on average) on their 1-to-9 attractiveness scale. So, for example, a salary of $50,000 x 10—$500,000—gets a guy 2 points higher in hotness. Meanwhile, in bummerific news for female honchos, for a woman to achieve that two-point hottitude bump, her salary would need to be multiplied by 10,000. In other words, a woman making $50K would have to make $500 million to be hotter in a man’s eyes. (No problem...right, ladies? Just get yourself promoted from legal secretary to international drug lord.) The researchers note that because men are “largely insensitive to cues indicating resources” in women, women have to make themselves “physically more attractive” to improve their mating prospects. Men, however, “can offset poor physical attractiveness, or further enhance existing good looks, by demonstrating their large levels of resources.” This does draw the gold diggers, but again, a woman doesn’t have to be a gold digger to be attracted to a man with money. To protect yourself from those who only care about the money, look for “inner beauty,” or what everybody’s grandpa calls “character.” Get to know her friends and family. And get to know who she is over time and across situations. There are clever sociopaths who keep up appearances even when tested, but over time, they tend to reveal their true selves in small ways. By weeding out the rotten apples, you make space for a woman who sincerely cares about you — and can’t help but find you attractive in the right light, such as the recessed spotlights on your Gulfstream jet.

ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The Queen of North

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I predict that between now and the end of the year, a Libran genetic engineer will create a new species of animal called a dat. A cross between a cat and a dog, it will have the grace, independence, and vigilance of a Persian cat and the geniality, loyalty, and ebullient strength of a golden retriever. Its stalking skills will synthesize the cat’s and dog’s different styles of hunting. I also predict that in the coming months, you will achieve greater harmony between the cat and dog aspects of your own nature, thereby acquiring some of the hybrid talents of the dat. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio poet Marianne Moore (1887–1972) won the Pulitzer Prize and several other prestigious awards. She was a rare poet who became a celebrity. That’s one of the reasons why the Ford car company asked her to dream up interesting names for a new model they were manufacturing. Alas, Ford decided the 43 possibilities she presented were too poetic, and rejected all of them. But some of Moore’s names are apt descriptors for the roles you could and should play in the phase you’re beginning, so I’m offering them for your use. Here they are: 1. Anticipator. 2. The Impeccable. 3. Tonnere Alifère (French term for “winged thunder”). 4. Tir á l’arc (French term for “bull’s eye”). 5. Regina-Rex (Latin terms for “queen” and “king”). SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s conceivable that in one of your past lives you were a pioneer who made the rough 2,170-mile migration via wagon train from Missouri to Oregon in the 1830s. Or maybe you were a sailor who accompanied the Viking Leif Eriksson in his travels to the New World five hundred years before Columbus. Is it possible you were part of the team assembled by Italian diplomat Giovanni da Pian del Carpine, who journeyed from Rome to Mongolia in the thirteenth century? Here’s why I’m entertaining these thoughts, Sagittarius: I suspect that a similar itch to ramble and explore and seek adventure may rise up in you during the coming weeks. I won’t be surprised if you consider making a foray to the edge of your known world.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): When the dinosaurs died off 65 million years ago, the crocodiles didn’t. They were around for 135 million years before that era, and are still here now. Why? “They are extremely tough and robust,” says croc expert James Perran Ross. Their immune systems “are just incredible.” Maybe best of all, they “learn quickly and adapt to changes in their situation.” In

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “Poems can bring comfort,” writes Piscean poet Jane Hirshfield. “They let us know . . . that we are not alone—but they also unseat us and make us more susceptible, larger, elastic. They foment revolutions of awareness and allow the complex, uncertain, actual world to enter.” According to my understanding of upcoming astrological omens, Pisces, life itself will soon be like the poems Hirshfield describes: unruly yet comforting; a source of solace but also a catalyst for transformation; bringing you healing and support but also asking you to rise up and reinvent yourself. Sounds like fun!

ARIES (March 21-April 19): After analyzing unusual animal behavior, magnetic fluctuations, outbreaks of mayhem on Twitter, and the position of the moon, a psychic has foretold that a moderate earthquake will rumble through the St. Louis, Missouri area in the coming weeks. I don’t agree with her prophecy. But I have a prediction of my own. Using data about how cosmic forces are conspiring to amuse and titillate your rapture chakra, I predict a major lovequake for many Aries between now and August 20. I suggest you start preparing immediately. How? Brainstorm about adventures and breakthroughs that will boost exciting togetherness. Get yourself in the frame of mind to seek out collaborative catharses that evoke both sensory delights and spiritual insights.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Tell me what you pay attention to and I will tell you who you are,” wrote Taurus philosopher José Ortega y Gasset. You could use that idea to achieve a finer grade of peace and grace in the coming weeks. The navel-gazing phase of your yearly cycle has begun, which means you’ll be in closest alignment with cosmic rhythms if you get to know yourself much better. One of the best ways to do that is to analyze what you pay most attention to. Another excellent way is to expand and refine and tenderize your feelings for what you pay most attention to. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano wrote that in Havana, people refer to their friends as mi sangre, my blood, or mi tierra, my country. In Caracas, he reported, a friend might be called mi llave, my key, or mi pana, my bread. Since you are in the alliance-boosting phase of your cycle, Gemini, I trust that you will find good reasons to think of your comrades as your blood, your country, your key, or your bread. It’s a favorable time for you to get closer, more personal, and more intimate. The affectionate depths are calling to you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your emotional intelligence is so strong right now that I bet you could alleviate the pain of a loved one even as you soothe a long-running ache of your own. You’re so spiritually alluring, I suspect you could arouse the sacred yearning of a guru, saint, or bodhisattva. You’re so interesting, someone might write a poem or story about you. You’re so overflowing with a lust for life that you might lift people out of their ruts just by being in their presence. You’re so smart you could come up with at least a partial solution to a riddle whose solution has evaded you for a long time.

Homework: What’s the most amazing feat you ever pulled off? What will you do for your next amazing feat?

You are beginning the denouement of your yearly cycle. Anything you do to resolve lingering conflicts and finish up old business will yield fertile rewards. Fate will conspire benevolently in your behalf as you bid final goodbyes to the influences you’ll be smart not to drag along with you into the new cycle that will begin in a few weeks. To inspire your holy work, I give you this poem by Virgo poet Charles Wright: “Knot by knot I untie myself from the past / And let it rise away from me like a balloon. / What a small thing it becomes. / What a bright tweak at the vanishing point, blue on blue.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “My only hope is that one day I can love myself as much as I love you.” Poet Mariah Gordon-Dyke wrote that to a lover, and now I’m offering it to you as you begin your Season of Self-Love. You’ve passed through other Seasons of Self-Love in the past, but none of them has ever had such rich potential to deepen and ripen your self-love. I bet you’ll discover new secrets about how to love yourself with the same intensity you have loved your most treasured allies.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Congrats, Virgo!

accordance with the astrological omens, I’m naming the crocodile as your creature teacher for the coming weeks. I suspect you will be able to call on a comparable version of their will to thrive. (Read more about crocs:

America and Europe called me on the phone. At least that’s how she identified herself. “I have a message for your Leo readers,” she told me. “Why Leo?” I asked. “Because I’m a Leo myself,” she replied, “and I know what my tribe needs to know right now.” I said, “OK. Give it to me.” “Tell Leos to always keep in mind the difference between healthy pride and debilitating hubris,” she said. “Tell them to be dazzlingly and daringly competent without becoming bossy and egomaniacal. They should disappear their arrogance but nourish their mandate to express leadership and serve as a role model. Be shiny and bright but not glaring and blinding. Be irresistible but not envy-inducing.”


I strongly believe in each person’s ability to discover their full health potential.

For local cannabis companies, staying within the bounds of the law becomes even more crucial By Jeremy Dickman


t’s time to come clean and admit it: I’m a supporter of the cannabis industry (I know, pick up your jaw, please). I firmly believe our decades-long strategy of prohibition has failed. Cops should not be locking up people whose only crime is a desire to make a Jimmy Page guitar solo a transcendental experience. We give $5 billion annually to the corn industry; the least we can do is stop criminalizing marijuana farmers. That said, the cannabis industry has to meet me halfway here. In a Deschutes County Board Hearing July 17, the Commissioners unanimously voted to reject an application for marijuana production and processing near Alfalfa, because two of the business partners are being investigated for arrests related to illegal marijuana production and trafficking. One of the defendants, Jacob Onat, testified last January to the board that he would have a significant hand in running the proposed operation in Alfalfa. He was then arrested in May. The Board cited applicant credibility and public safety concerns in denying the application, which was filed with the county last year. “It’s true that people are innocent until proven guilty,” Chairperson Phil Henderson said, “but these are pretty serious charges.” I have to ensure I’m not in a spoon-bending alternate reality as I say this, but I agree with Henderson. The New industry players need to reflect a willingness and ability to play by the rules. When an applicant testifies that he’ll abide by Deschutes County regulations—as well those drafted by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, we must do more than take his word for it. And if he violates those very rules in another setting, it’s fair to take that into consideration. Moreover, this is a situation where the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals will likely agree with Deschutes County. In Lee v. Marion County, a LUBA decision involving a bed-and-breakfast applicant, LUBA said it will not overrule local governments who find credibility problems associated with evidence provided at land-use hearings. This is a pretty consistent maxim in litigation. State and federal appeals courts tend to defer to the trial-court factfinder when cases hinge on witness credibility. This isn’t the only blow suffered by this applicant in the past month. High Desert Equity Partners, Inc., which holds an OLCC marijuana retail license in Bend for The Local Market cannabis dispensary, (and which was behind this land-use application) agreed to an 18-day suspension or a $2,970 fine for an OLCC violation. While this particular issue didn’t arise during the county’s deliberations, it certainly presents a challenge for

the company’s vertical-integration plans. We reached out to the company but did not receive a response by press time. This denial also comes on the heels of the OLCC and Bend’s Oregrown reaching a stipulated settlement on June 20, resulting in suspensions and fines for multiple violations at its production facility. (This is to be distinguished from its dispensary location, which has not been fined or suspended as part of this settlement.) Alex Tinker, Oregrown’s lead counsel, had this to say: “The violations at the core of this settlement were committed by a former employee and suspension marks the end of the problems he caused. Oregrown terminated his employment when it learned of his unauthorized removal of seeds and plants from licensed premises. While Oregrown couldn’t have stopped that employee from doing what he did, the law makes licensees responsible for the actions of their employees. The company accepts that responsibility, and views the settlement as fair and appropriate.” I’ve frequently used this platform to spotlight what I see as hypocrisy among our elected community leaders in overly regulating cannabis, an industry that inflicts comparatively little harm on the community as compared to many other industries (the Bend craft brewing craze comes to mind). But we’ll win no new converts if mugshots and explosions dominate the news coverage of this industry. Congress formally lends an ear In a bipartisan hearing on Capitol Hill, the U.S. House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security listened to testimony in support of an end to federal prohibition of cannabis. This was the first such hearing in the history of the U.S., (or at least, since the Drug War was spawned by Nixon in the '70s). Several medical and legal experts testified in front of the Subcommittee. One of the issues was the collateral effects of the drug war against historically marginalized populations. People of color are four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than white folks, and prior arrests or convictions have posed a serious barrier to black and brown people when it comes to participating in the legal cannabis market (or any employment, for that matter). Instead, the very wealthy (and very white) have been the real beneficiaries of marijuana legalization. Many states— including Oregon—are working to expunge past marijuana convictions, but the entire country will soon need to reckon with its own hypocrisy in continuing to punish those arrested in the past for actions we no longer punish today.
