VOLUME 25 ISSUE 23 / JUNE 10, 2021 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
This week’s themed issue takes on a topic that has many different “faucets”—Water. Determining how much water is placed into rivers (and reservoirs) versus how much is meted out for irrigation is a big topic in a drought year, so that’s definitely included in our coverage this week. Recreating on local waterways is another popular topic—so it, too, gets some ink on our Feature pages. And finding new stores of water? That should be of interest to many—so it’s also mentioned in this week’s Feature. And just for good measure, we’ve included some info on Central Oregon’s newest indoor aquatic center on page 25. Are there other things we’re missing? Definitely. But we hope this small sampling of issues related to water gets your juices flowing, so to speak. I couldn’t help the pun…

ith less than two weeks left for the current session of the Oregon State Legislative Assembly, there’s lots going on. Legislators have passed a bill paving the way for a new police oversight board in Portland, and they’ve made Juneteenth an official state holiday. House Republicans have signed a letter encouraging one of their own, Rep. Mike Nearman, to resign following the release of a new video showing him appearing to plan to let rioters into the State Capitol. On Tuesday, legislators also passed a bill that makes it easier to find land to be used for affordable housing. And while not all of this has been embraced or endorsed by every member of each party, it’s at least signaling some relative harmony and ability to get things done, in a legislature that has seen multiple time-wasting walkouts over several recent sessions. Having bills pass with bipartisan support and bipartisan votes is often a signal that the bill itself is generally supported by a majority of regular people, too—which makes another recent event in the State Capitol all the more concerning. On May 26, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown vetoed Senate Bill 574, the motorcycle lane-splitting bill that was sponsored by a bipartisan group of senators and which passed 42-14 in the House and 18-6 in the Senate. The bill would have allowed motorcyclists to travel in between lanes of traffic when that traffic had slowed to 10 miles per hour or less and would have only allowed motorcyclists to travel 10 miles per hour faster than the rest of traffic. Advocates say it had the potential to make driving a motorcycle safer while in traffic, since it could allow motorcyclists to avoid the bumper-tobumper traffic that can be especially dangerous. Gov. Brown vetoed it, citing
safety concerns—though the bill actually would have placed tighter restrictions on motorcyclists than are placed in other states that allow lane-splitting, such as California. While the bill was hardly one that would affect a vast majority of Oregonians’ lives, it should still be concerning to many to see it vetoed, serving as a warning sign that the balance of power we have been concerned about throughout this pandemic is indeed off kilter. When a bi-partisan majority of Oregon’s senators and representatives pass a bill, it should stand to reason that our governor would support it, too—especially so fast on the heels of those obstructive walkouts in recent sessions. Seeing the work of representatives and senators representing every corner of Oregon rejected is a sign that our direct representation is out of whack. It also begs the question: If our governor is not listening to our representatives, who is she listening to? Those who live east of the Cascade crest sometimes complain about their lives and Oregon’s laws being dictated by the larger urban centers to the west. That assessment is not without merit. Rejecting a bipartisan bill such as this one only feeds the notion that outside Portland, we don’t have direct representation. If locals like us must lobby the governor’s office directly to see basic rule changes made, what’s the point of having our own senators and representatives? A veto on a bill like this is a sign that we should again be concerned that the balance between our branches of government needs adjustment. If a governing body that directly represents the people passes a bill, there should be a high bar for a veto. We declare this recent veto a very low bar indeed.

We live in a deep economic crisis that’s devastating families across the nation. From lack of affordable housing, access to childcare and jobs with living wages, families are struggling to survive. This is not a new phenomenon; the pandemic has just made it much worse. The most critical issue is housing as it is the foundation for which we build our lives. There is no excuse that in the richest country in the world we have so many of our neighbors, including children, living on the streets or in our forests in tents or vehicles, on the verge of that very situation, or spending so much of their income on rent or mortgage that they are barely keeping their head above the water. Take my case, for example. I spent three of my five years in Oregon without a home, living in the national forest with my husband and two young kids who are now ages 11 and 9. We moved from Florida thinking the housing crisis may be better in the West, but it’s worse. I was making $19 an hour before being laid off due to COVID and I still couldn’t afford to rent in my community. The only reason we were able to obtain housing was because of the Rapid Rehousing and Housing Voucher programs, both of which are severely underfunded. The time is now for legislators to act for Oregonians who are struggling during the pandemic and to provide relief by giving American Rescue Plan funds to agencies and direct services to get and keep people housed and provide access to childcare so parents can go back to work while their children are safe and getting the care they need. Indeed, we need solutions and policies that assure all of us have a place to call home. That must be the American dream, embracing our values for a caring economy that uplifts families regardless of how much money they have or where they were born.
Over the last several decades, our country has underfunded and undermined federal housing programs for the most economically vulnerable. It is time for a transformative housing agenda that guarantees homes for all. To recover beyond the pandemic families require transforming housing into a system that is equitable through bolder changes and longer-term investments. American Rescue Plan dollars must be used to get Oregonians a place to sleep, rest, share meals and live their lives. Let them feel the relief they have needed by helping secure housing in our communities and by helping our families. Housing is critical community infrastructure that must be planned, operated and financed for public good. Let’s invest in building, maintaining and preserving affordable housing. The need is dire now and will only continue to get worse. Like air to breathe and food to eat, safe, stable, affordable housing is a basic human need. Without it, folks are constantly living in survival mode and unable to focus on their other barriers to stability. —Mandee Seeley is a member of Residents Organizing for Change, a statewide network of people committed to advocating for safe, stable and affordable housing for all Oregonians. She lives in Sisters.
Billions of people rely on food from the oceans, however, no food comes from the dead zones. Many fish species are at their lowest levels ever. Sustainability sounds good but rarely is effectual. To save our planet we need to save our oceans and other water sources. The Climate Change emphasis on reducing carbon is a red herring. Even John Kerry (Jan. 27, 2021) has stated that elimination of ALL carbon produced in the USA will have NO effect on climate change. This has been proven mathematically by others (e.g. The Cato Institute). The trillions of dollars to be spent on reducing carbon would be better spent on cleaning up our oceans and our sources of water for human use. —Quentin Jauquet

severe water shortage in Central OR, why residential, non-farm, non- productive grazing fields are being watered on a daily basis. The attached photo is just a sample of The Highlands here in Bend, watering massive fields of nothing; no cattle graze these fields, no crops are grown, and there isn’t even any landscaping (which begs another question as to justification for watering)?!

ON WATER Few people realize that the oceans currently provide 50-80% (NOAA) of the oxygen in our air. This comes from photosynthesis (e.g. cyanobacteria). The oceans are not healthy and their ability to produce oxygen has gone down due to dead zones. Dead zones (hypoxic) in the oceans have increased four-fold since the 1950s and 10-fold in coastal waterbodies. Dead zones are created from anthropogenic (human) activity such as sewage, fertilizers, industrial chemicals and plastics.

Can’t Camp Here WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / JUNE 10, 2021 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE
Bend City Council adopts a policy for the removal of houseless camps on public right of ways. With shelters at capacity, where will they go? By Jack Harvel
he Bend City Council unanimously approved a new policy on campsite removals for camps in City right of ways at its meeting June 2. The Council tailored the conversation to one of the City’s most visible camps, on Emerson Avenue. On Monday social service providers received the notice to engage with camp residents to prepare for the camp’s removal. The policy sets benchmarks for declaring a camp unsafe, and the process for removing them. Fire hazards, accumulation of trash, calls for police service, public urination and impeding on roadways could all be cited as reasons for deeming a camp unsafe, according to the new policy. The City will give at least two week’s notice to residents, and coordinate with service providers before removing a camp, and they must store any confiscated property for at least 30 days for retrieval. The City Council’s input on the policy made it specific to Emerson until the policy can be further analyzed, to coordinate with St. Charles Medical Center and Mosaic Medical to ensure COVID safety, a longer notice given to residents and to explore using American Rescue Plan Act funds for a managed camp. The policy was met with criticism from people who work with the camps. Eleven people called in for public comment during the June 2 meeting to oppose the camp’s removal. Some said the City’s new criteria didn’t apply to the camp on Emerson because the area offers resources for people there.
“The camp at Emerson is actually one of the locations where we have trash collection and restrooms at no cost to the City, so you cannot justify the eviction for those reasons,” said Eric Garrity, who volunteers with Street Kitchen Collective distributing food to camps, during public comment. Others argued evicting camps is contrary to advice given by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “The decision to move these individuals from their home without a proper plan is cruel,” Kay Vincent, a member of Bend’s Human Rights and Equity Commission, commented during the work session. “The CDC guidelines clearly state that houseless camps should not be moved. Not only is it a public health concern but an individual concern as their providers will not know where they will go which will disrupt the care that they’re receiving.” The camp is the most diverse camp in the city, Vincent alleged, and that their needs can’t be met by the newly opened Shepherd’s House shelter nearby on Second Street, which will not be housing people between 7am-6pm. “With this heat wave it creates another concern that these human beings will be forced to move in extreme conditions. Being outside right now is already uncomfortable. Imagine having to move every single item that you own on foot across town,” they said. The Council set a goal of attracting 500 additional beds for houseless people, during its most recent goal setting,

but at the time of the camp’s removal, Bend’s shelters don’t have the capacity to house them, nor do they have designated safe camping sites. “Until we are able to walk on to Emerson and say we’re closing Emerson, but we have these three locations that have been designated safe camping where you can go, what we will be doing, and it’s happening already, is we are pushing people back to China Hat, back to Hunnell, people are going right back into areas right by people’s residential neighborhoods,” said Stacey Witte, founder and director of the houseless nonprofit REACH. Bend City Councilor Anthony Broadman said he’s received a lot of input requesting more aggressive action in camp removal. Creating a
policy was necessary, he said, so that both housed and houseless populations can be aware of the removal process as the houseless population steadily grows in Bend. The rate has gone up by double digits for several years in a row, according to the Point In Time Homeless Count from the Homeless Leadership Coalition. “I don’t think it’s fair to staff, I don’t think it’s fair to campers, I don’t think it’s fair to the housed community to not have a policy about how we’re going to deal with this,” Broadman said during the meeting. “This is a dress rehearsal for problems we’re having in other areas of our community. You saw the 13% number of homelessness increase, that’s the same number as the year before.”
Too Hot To Handle
Oregon’s fire season is starting earlier than it has in recorded history. How are agencies preparing? By Jack Harvel
ith the entire state in some form of drought, Oregon’s fire season is starting earlier than it has in recorded history. The season could be as devastating as last year’s wildfires that swept over 1 million acres and destroyed thousands of homes, officials say. The potential for disaster has spurred public officials across the state to start outreach early, promoting fire safety to Oregonians. “Everywhere you go the message is that the days ahead look like scorching temperatures bumping up against a cold reality,” Sen. Ron Wyden said during a briefing with firefighters in Bend June 3. “These are not your grandfathers’ fires. Modern fires are bigger,” he said.
In a briefing from the governor’s office, Oregon Fire Marshall Mariana Ruiz-Temple agreed with that assessment, saying fires in the last 10 to 20 years have lasted longer and been more complex. “I think the biggest thing that we are looking at is really transitioning from the concept of a seasonal fire season and more of a fire year,” Ruiz-Temple said. With the high risk for fires, officials are advocating for safe fire use and promoting what people should do if they spot a fire. “I would say human-caused fires has definitely been the problem so far this year, and in general it’s at least 50% of our fire load here in Central Oregon on a normal year,” said Kevin Stock, fire
and aviation staff officer for the Central Oregon Fire Management Service. COFMS produced videos on safe fire use and has promoted them on its website and social media. The agency is also trying to make the process for reporting a fire clear for Oregonians. “If it’s a fire that’s doing something, a fire that’s obviously a problem, it’s moving, that’s a 911 call,” Stock said. “If you see someone who’s having a campfire and it looks inappropriate, you can look up your local dispatch center or you can call the non-emergency number for your local sheriff and they will get that message to an appropriate agency.” Meanwhile the Oregon Public Utility Commission has established rules for public safety power shutoffs to reduce
the risk of severed power lines starting a fire during intense weather. The shutoff is the last resort, but could occur if winds are strong enough to dislodge branches and trees. “With the earliest official opening to Oregon’s wildfire season in 40 years, the establishment of these rules was extremely important and timely,” said OPUC Commissioner Letha Tawney in a press release. “They are designed to help keep Oregonians safe by establishing criteria on how the utilities communicate and coordinate during a PSPS, and particularly how they issue notifications before, during, and after a potential PSPS in order to provide the PUC, public safety partners and the general public useful and timely information.”

La temporada de incendios en Oregon está comenzando más pronto de lo registrado en la historia
n su junta del 2 de junio, el consejo municipal de la ciudad de Bend aprobó por unanimidad una nueva política para quitar los campamentos del paso público de la ciudad de Bend. El consejo adaptó la conversación a uno de los campamentos más visibles de la ciudad, el de la avenida Emerson. El lunes, los prestadores de servicios recibieron el aviso para que se involucraran con los pobladores del campamento y para prepararlos para quitar el campamento. La política establece parámetros de referencia para declarar un campamento inseguro y el proceso para quitarlos. De acuerdo con la nueva política, los riesgos de incendio, la acumulación de basura, las llamadas a la policía, el orinar en zona pública y obstaculizar los caminos, podrían citarse como las razones para considerar a un campamento inseguro. La ciudad dará por lo menos un aviso de dos semanas a los habitantes de esos campamentos y se coordinará con los prestadores de servicios antes de quitar un campamento y deberán guardar cualquier artículo confiscado por lo menos durante 30 días para así poder recuperarlo.
El aporte del consejo municipal de la ciudad de Bend sobre la política lo hizo especifico a la avenida Emerson hasta que la política se pueda analizar más a fondo para coordinarse con St. Charles Medical Center y Mosaic Medical y garantizar el mantenerse a salvo durante COVID, dar un aviso a los habitantes del campamento con más anticipación y explorar el uso de la ley del plan de rescate estadounidense y de los fondos para un campamento controlado. La política fue recibida con críticas de parte de personas que trabajan con los campamentos. Once personas convocaron comentarios públicos durante la junta del 2 de junio para oponerse a que quiten el campamento. Algunos dijeron que los nuevos parámetros de la ciudad no aplican para el campamento de Emerson ya que la zona ofrece recursos para las personas que están establecidas allí. “El campamento Emerson es uno en los que tenemos recolección de basura y servicio de baños sin costo para la ciudad, así que no se puede justificar el que quiten este campamento por esas razones,” dijo Eric Garraty, voluntario con Street Kitchen Collective, quien reparte comida a los campamentos. Otras personas discutieron que desalojar los campamentos va con lo opuesto a los consejos dados por los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades.

ado que todo el estado se encuentra con algún tipo de sequía, la temporada de incendios en Oregon está comenzando más pronto de lo registrado en la historia. La temporada podría ser tan devastadora como la de los incendios forestales del año pasado que arrasaron con más de 1 millón de acres y destruyeron miles de casas, indicaron las autoridades. La posibilidad de desastre ha propiciado que los funcionarios públicos de todo el estado empiecen a promover con anticipación la seguridad contra incendios para los habitantes de Oregon. “Dondequiera que vaya, el mensaje es que los días que vienen en camino se ven con temperaturas altas y enfrentando una fría realidad,” dijo el senador Ron Wayden durante una reunión informativa el día 3 de junio con los bomberos de Bend. Estos no son los incendios de antaño. Los incendios de hoy en día son más intensos., dijo Wayden En una reunión informativa de la oficina de la gobernadora, la jefa de bomberos de Oregon, Mariana Ruiz-Temple,
estuvo de acuerdo con esa evaluación, indicando que los incendios en los últimos 10 a 20 años han durado más tiempo y han sido más complejos. “Yo diría que los incendios causados por el ser humano definitivamente han sido el problema en lo que va del año y por lo general, es al menos el 50% de nuestra carga de incendios aquí en la zona centro de Oregon en un año común y corriente, dijo Kevin Stock, oficial del personal de bomberos y aviación del servicio de manejo de incendios en la zona centro de Oregon (COFMS por sus siglas en inglés). COFMS publico videos sobre el uso seguro del fuego y los ha promocionado en su sitio web y en las redes sociales. La agencia también está tratando de aclarar a los habitantes de Oregon como llevar a cabo el proceso para reportar un incendio. “Si es un incendio lo que está causando algo, un incendio que obviamente es un problema, que está avanzando, esto es un indicativo de una llamada al 911,” dijo Stock. Si ve que alguien está haciendo una fogata y le parece ser inapropiado, puede buscar a el departamento de despacho local o llamar al número telefónico de la oficina del alguacil local, al número que no es para reportar emergencias, y ellos le enviaran el mensaje a la agencia apropiada.

Canoe Trails in the Klamath Basin WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / JUNE 10, 2021 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE
Exploring Upper Klamath Lake and Klamath Marsh by canoe or kayak can be a path to environmental stewardship By Damian Fagan A kayaker enjoys the serenity of the Upper Klamath Lake Canoe Trail.
pper Klamath Lake is the largest body of water in Oregon by surface area—approximately 25 miles long by 8 miles wide, but with an average depth of only 14 feet. The lake is the remnant of Lake Modoc, a Pleistocene-aged lake (11,000 years ago to about 2.5 million) that covered over 1,000 square miles, stretching from Fort Klamath to Tule Lake, roughly 10 times the size of today’s Upper Klamath Lake. Damian Fagan
Signage marks the canoe trail in Upper Klamath Lake.
Historically, native tribes such as the Klamath, Modoc and Yahooscan lived along the lakeshore, harvesting fish, waterfowl, mammals and plants from the waters and surrounding lands. Peter Skene Ogden of the Hudson’s Bay Company was probably the first European to view the lake, which he called “Dog Lake” because he traded for dogs with
the native people. Today, portions of the lake, and adjacent Agency Lake, are managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as part of a greater Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge complex. Though some roads and trails provide recreational or wildlife-viewing opportunities, the best way to experience these marshlands is by boat. Launch points for the Upper Klamath Lake canoe trail include Rocky Point public boat launch and Malone Springs (the nearby Rocky Point Resort and Crystal Creek Mountain Lodge both offer private launch points). Both are located off the Westside Road, also known as the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway. The canoe trail totals about 9.5 miles and may be broken into four segments that offer options to explore portions of the wetlands between the two public launches. “We float from Malone Springs to the Rocky Point public boat launch, which is about three hours,” said Mark Cobb, owner of Sky Lakes Wilderness Adventures, one of several outfitters that provide tours or boat rentals. Malone Springs is named after pioneer James Malone (1852-1939) who homesteaded in nearby Langall Valley in 1874. From Malone Springs, boaters may opt to head upstream along Crystal Creek to the narrow waterway’s headwaters near the Crystal Creek Mountain Lodge. The lodge and Sportsman House are Airbnb rentals with kayaks provided for guests to use from the private launch point. Floating along the forested edge, several other springs join the flow. These habitats provide superb birding for waterfowl, as well as warblers, grosbeaks, blackbirds and flycatchers
singing from the bulrushes, willows, aspens and conifers. Muskrats, beaver and river otters are also possible species to encounter along this stretch. Though the beeline from Malone Springs to Rocky Point is about 4 miles, several watery routes split off from the main trail and provide more paddling opportunities. Paddlers who reach the lower portion of the canoe trail where it joins Pelican Bay should be prepared for windy conditions that can make this more open-water section challenging, if not dangerous. In addition to wildlife, one of the unique botanical inhabitants of these cold-water springs are cobblestone-sized looking gelatinous colonies of blue-green
To the north, Klamath Marsh National Wildlife Refuge usually offers another opportunity to explore a wild marsh by canoe between July 1 through Sept. 30. However, according to Mike Johnson, Klamath Marsh NWR refuge manager, there is very little water in the Wocus Bay at the current time; thus, the canoe trail will not be viable this summer. Upper Klamath Lake National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1928 (and Klamath Marsh in 1958) to protect portions of these unique marsh habitats surrounded by the southern Cascades and forested foothills. Unfortunately, an estimated 80% of the original marshlands have been converted into agricultural or croplands.
An estimated 80% of the original marshlands have been converted into agricultural or croplands.. algae or cyanobacteria in the Nostoc genus, known as mare’s eggs or troll jelly. Needing cold, low-nutrient water, mare’s eggs thrive in springs along the west side of the lake and should be viewed from a distance and not disturbed. On the east side of the basin, paddlers may explore the Wood River Wetlands and Agency Lake from the Petric County Park boat launch off Highway 427 (Modoc Point Road), just over 5 miles from Chiloquin. Donated by the Petric Family in 1971, boaters follow a series of channels to access the area from a well-maintained launch. “It’s a pretty awesome spot because there’s a lot of bird life in there, as well as beavers and otters,” said Cobb, the guide.
Water rights and protection of endangered fish species such as the shortnosed sucker and Lost River sucker are often at odds with each other, and dam removal on the lower Klamath is a long-term process aimed at restoring salmon runs into the basin. Though the area’s environmental issues are diverse and numerous, a great way to learn about and experience the basin is by just getting out there and paddling through the “tules.” Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuges

By Jack Harvel
A water pipe sits in a ditch before it was buried by Central Oregon Irrigation District to replace open-air canals. Canals can lose up to half of their water in transit through seepage into the ground and evaporation, piping advocates say.
ast summer the Wickiup Reservoir dried to just 1% of its capacity, the lowest it has been since it was built in 1949. In an average year the reservoir, which stores Deschutes River water, would be at about 25% of its capacity at the end of irrigation season, with just over 63,000 acre-feet. Last year’s shortage illustrated a decade of drought and generous allocations of water rights. This shortage continued this year, and the reservoir is holding just over 60% of what it was last year and less than 40% of what it usually stores in June. This challenge arrives just months after the approval of the Deschutes Basin Habitat Conservation Plan for the Deschutes, submitted by eight irrigation district that reimagines what the Deschutes will look like. “With the habitat conservation plan the focus is on increasing winter flows, and also bringing down the summer flows,” Deschutes River Conservancy Executive Director Kate Fitzpatrick said. The natural unimpeded flow of the river runs at about 600 cubic feet per second in the winter and over 1,000 cfs at its peak in the summer. The DBHCP doesn’t seek to restore the river to its natural flow, but to support habitats for the Oregon spotted frog and Redband trout. The goal is to maintain flows between 4-500 cfs in the winter to support springtime breeding grounds for the frog, listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. The Redband trout, meanwhile, is listed as a “species of concern.” “Both need more water, but the Oregon spotted frog has very specific breeding flow needs in the spring, for example. And still has specific migration patterns in Crook and Whychus ,” Fitzpatrick said. Enough water to go around? Irrigation districts will have to coordinate more than they have in their over 100 years of existence to make sure there’s enough water to go around. The season could be especially difficult for junior water right holders. Oregon water laws are called prior appropriation, meaning primacy in water collection goes to the older districts.
“Basically, the first ones here got to apply to the state for water rights, and they were granted,” Fitzpatrick said. “North Unit has a 1913 water right and that is very junior. So by the time we got around to 1913 the state had actually given out more water rights to use the water than exists in the river in the summer months.” Fitzpatrick said she believes that the law of prior appropriation is the root of Central Oregon’s water problems today. “All the reservoirs are low, the natural flow in the rivers are low, everything’s low due to the years of drought we’ve experienced so far and it’s been particularly hard for North Unit Irrigation District as the junior water right holder on the river,” said Mike Britton, manager of North Unit Irrigation District. With the DBHCP, irrigation districts will have to find some ways to work together to meet flow goals. “We have sort of an inter-district agreement to do conservation projects and through those conservation projects we take the conserved water and transfer it to a junior user,” said Shon Rae, deputy managing director of Central Oregon Irrigation District. “And those conservation projects would be a bunch of different ways.” Improving infrastructure One of the main ways irrigation districts are attempting to increase capacity is through improving water infrastructure, such as replacing openair canals with underground piping, on-farm sprinkler upgrades and lining canals to reduce seepage. “That’s really the district’s main strategy to meet the flow commitments under the habitat conservation plan,” Fitzpatrick said. “For the first time ever under that plan the districts have committed to meet flow targets. So, they’re going to triple the flows in the next five years, and then continue to increase the flows from there for a significant amount of restoration work.” Water rights in the basin are skewed heavily toward irrigation, with those districts holding 86% of the basin’s water rights. Twelve % of water rights
are reserved for instream purposes and 2% for municipal uses. Piping projects are very expensive, but they save a lot of water, advocates say. It’s estimated half of the water either evaporates or drains into the ground while traveling in open canals. “Especially in this watershed in these volcanic areas, because there’s so much seepage if you want to get, say, five buckets of water delivered via a canal from point A to point B, you might have to release 10 buckets of water, because five of them are going to go into the ground,” said Gail Snyder, founder of Coalition for the Deschutes.
don’t have a lot of options. My conservation projects in reaching out to our other irrigation districts, really at the end of the day, that’s the only way we can survive is to get help from others.” Trouble in the Klamath Basin For local farmers, things could be worse. In the Klamath Basin, farmers purchased property next to the Klamath Irrigation District’s headgate and have expressed their intent to force it open, after federal officials ordered Klamath Lake retain the water it had to protect endangered fish. The protest started as a local affair among farmers who would
"All the reservoirs are low, the natural ﬂow in the rivers are low, everything’s low due to the years of drought we’ve experienced so far and it’s been particularly hard for North Unit Irrigation District as the junior water right holder on the river.” —Mike Britton The other tool irrigation districts are using is water marketing, where they temporarily lease or buy water rights from individuals and give that water back to the river or to a junior irrigation district struggling to meet demand. “We’ve had an annual industry and water leasing program for a long time, and this year it’s generating 60 cubic feet per second, and leasing about 4,500 irrigated acres in stream,” Fitzpatrick said. “What we’re hoping to do is to build on that with districts to really open up opportunities for irrigation district patrons to lease water, leaves more water and lease it between districts and to the river.” The worst of the impact will likely be felt in the Northern Unit, which relies on the Wickiup Reservoir for a lot of its water. The area has many farms that grow high-production crops like alfalfa, mint and carrot seed. “We’ve done some projects recently, and in the past, to develop and stretch our water supply, but being the junior right holder, we’ve not really been able to,” Britton of North Unit said. “We
lose significant income, but attracted the attention of People’s Rights, an organization formed by Ammon Bundy in 2020. Bundy is most well-known for occupying the Malheur Natural Wildlife Refuge in 2016, leading to a shootout with federal agents that killed occupier LaVoy Finicum, who was allegedly reaching for a pistol. The two farmers that bought the property adjacent to the headgate, Grant Knoll and Dan Nielsen, have thus far pursued a legal route, but as Oregon Public Broadcasting reported, the farmers haven’t had much success. “Your merits of what you’re trying to argue never get heard,” Knoll told OPB. “So the frustration is building because we want to use the legal system and if the legal system’s failing you, what’s next?” In 2001 Klamath was ordered to halt irrigation deliveries to protect an at-risk species, though the federal government ultimately relented and allowed limited water deliveries. With as severe a drought as Klamath Lake is facing, it’s unclear if that will happen this time.

Discovering a Glacier and What It Means for Local Water
In honor of the Water Issue, a local glacial scientist talks about the recent discovery on South Sister By Nicole Vulcan
ate in the summer of 2020, a team of glacier experts, including Anders Carlson and Aaron Hartz, discovered a new glacier on South Sister in the Oregon Cascades. Finding a new glacier in Norway is no big deal, says Carlson, an Oregonian and the president of Oregon Glaciers Institute—but finding one in the Oregon Cascades is noteworthy. To Carlson, it’s a sign of how little time we spend investigating our own backyard. In honor of this week’s Water Issue, I chatted with Carlson about the discovery. Source Weekly: Why has this glacier never been discovered? Anders Carlson: The last time anybody ever looked at glaciers in Oregon was in the 1950s when they were making the first topographical maps after World War II. What was done in the 1950s has not been updated. The people were not cartographers—they weren’t glacial scientists. Plus, its location makes it difficult to find. It’s on the north side so it’s always in the shade. You have to get the right aspect of your airplane flight to do that, or it will be in the shade. On top of that it’s got a lot of rock fall. Its low point is covered by a lot of debris, protecting it and insulating it too. If you don’t go in and see it in the field, you won’t see it.
SW: Now that you’ve found it, what will its name be? AC: It takes a while to name things— at least a decade. There’s the U.S. Board of Geographic Names—you start down the long track record of naming it. The goal is to work with the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde to name it.
SW: With the current drought, finding a new glacier must be a pretty big deal for water resources, right? AC: We found more ice in the high alpine zone that we didn’t know about. This is a new body of ice that is feeding into the McKenzie system—that means there’s more water up there than Courtesy Oregon Glaciers Institute

we knew about before. Glaciers store it as ice and release it a decade or more later to our streams. In cases of these bad snow years, the glaciers are the last bit of water left up there to feed those streams and keeps those streams flowing. Those streams are cold, and that chilled water allows salmon to spawn, trout to spawn, to irrigate farms. Many people in Bend don’t know this, but the Crook Glacier on Broken Top feeds Tumalo Creek, which is where Bend draws its drinking water. That water is snowmelt, but it’s also glacial melt. In these bad years when we have low snowpack, the glaciers are our sole surface water source. Finding this glacier means we have this last-resort surface water. If you think like a backpacker, the glaciers are the canned beans of our water source— the last thing you’re opening, and they’re 10 years old. Another way of looking at these things—they’re not just pretty to look at. This is something we use, too. We should care about them for environmental reasons, but also for our own health, too. Our way of life is tied to these glaciers, which I don’t think is fully appreciated.

ocated in downtown Redmond (in what used to be a church built in the 1940s) you’ll find Central Oregon’s newest music venue and creative space, the High Desert Music Hall. Created to be a hub for music, art, food, entertainment and community, the Hall hosts its first concert this Saturday when Blackstrap Bluegrass takes the stage. The venue already has a steady lineup of events booked through the summer, including music from G-Bots & The Journeymen, The Jess Ryan Band and Company Grand, as well as comedy delivered by Carl Lee. The Hall also hosted the Dry Canyon Art Association’s Art at the Music Hall this past weekend, along with its very first open mic night on May 29. Plus, there will be many more events to be announced as the year unfolds and the Hall gets its footing. Local musicians say having a new indoor space for music in Redmond is an exciting prospect. “The High Desert Music Hall is a beacon of hope for the music community and for Redmond as a whole. Growing up in Redmond there wasn’t a lot for us to do, which led us into loads of trouble,” says musician Jeshua Marshall. “Seeing Redmond grow in such a positive way gives me so much hope for the next generations of my hometown. Support this venue as much you can!” A project started and led by musician iLko and artist Terkwoize two
years ago, the Music Hall is finally able to open its doors following multiple renovations on the building—on top of all the logistical headaches that came with the pandemic. Located on SW Forest Avenue in downtown Redmond, the new space comes equipped with a bar, accessible balcony, a main stage and so much more. The Hall also offers a 100% plant-based menu as part of its mission to bring healthy and sustainable meal options to the community. Not only will the Music Hall serve as a venue for live shows, but it’s also home to the Backline Lounge, which iLko detailed in an Instagram post as being “a neighborhood style gathering spot and lounge” that also features a smaller stage. iLko finished by saying all the labor put into the community-focused bubble being created at the Hall has been more than worth it. “This has been the most ambitious rollercoaster of a project I have ever been a part of. Seeing it come to fruition has brought more pride to my soul than I could have ever imagined.” Follow the Hall on Instagram @highdesertmusichall to truly appreciate the labor of love that was put into the new spot, and find tickets to its ticketed shows at bendticket.com.

COLLATION FOR THE DESCHUTES
Vanishing Glaciers in the Deschutes Basin
VOICES FOR THE RIVER WHISKEY IS FOR DRINKIN’ by Holly Mondo, Board Member, Coalition for the Deschutes In water world, we hear the adage, “whiskey’s for drinkin’; water’s for fightin’ over” far too often. It’s still true that whiskey is for drinking, but it is time to change the saying to “…water is for discussing for hours with people from varying walks of life who can come to the table to solve problems.”
From fish to farms, from flora to fire hazard, glaciers are crucial to our well-being. Oregon’s glaciers are the natural water reservoirs of the high Cascade water towers. Glacier meltwater sustains rivers during the late summer and fall for flora, fauna and irrigation. The glacier melt chills streams for salmon and trout, with the attendant effect of cooling surrounding forests that reduces fire risk and intensity. In short, glaciers are an integral part of Central Oregon ecosystems and economies. And yet, we do not know how many glaciers remain today in the basin, let alone how many existed a century ago. The Oregon Glacier Institute is undertaking the first census of glaciers in Oregon since the 1950s. They are examining how glacier changes are related to regional climate change, to determine what the future holds for the remaining glaciers in the Deschutes Basin.
As the Deschutes River meanders through Central Oregon, you’ll find countless people enjoying the benefits of its waters. What calls them to the River? Perhaps it’s beauty, tranquility or cultural significance; perhaps it’s recreation or agriculture; maybe it’s all of the above. Whatever the calling, the value of water is not easily calculated or defined—it is complex and delicate. Listening to and sharing perceptions with a diverse set of folks will help us understand the complexities. There is power in understanding what motivates people to come to the table. The greater the diversity of voices, the greater the chance of solving our water issues. “Whiskey will always be for drinkin’, but water is now for collaborating over.”
WE ARE ALL STEWARDS OF THE RIVER by Zavier Borja, Program Coordinator, Latino Outdoors Through learning and appreciation, I connect to the river. Appreciating and utilizing the river for recreational purposes has been for my personal enjoyment. In the same vein, I have seen how the river has been almost exploited for its recreational opportunities. Over time, I have seen how much the river is used. Collaboration is vital to the health of the river and our communities.
If you like to eat, then thank a farmer. From the family unit to the global commons, we are connected by food and farmers. Jefferson County grows 55% of America’s hybrid carrot seed. That seed goes into packets for backyard gardens; it goes into the fields that supply farmers markets and supermarkets. Our urban and rural lives are intertwined. Who are Central Oregon farmers? They are parents and grandparents. They fish and recreate on rivers. They are stewards of the land. They are our neighbors. 2
COLLATION FOR COALITION FORTHE THEDESCHUTES DESCHUTES
At Latino Outdoors, we embrace cultura y familia as part of the outdoor narrative, ensuring our history, heritage, and leadership are valued and represented. Our vision is to have a world where all Latino communities enjoy nature as a safe, inclusive, and welcoming place. I am reminded that we are here temporarily, yet the river endures. I encourage folks to enjoy the river to its fullest, and also learn ways to give back to the river.
VOICES FOR THE RIVER BALANCED! by Courtney Braun, Naturalist Guide, Wanderlust Tours Balance is so important in our daily lives as humans and also for the Deschutes River. We need to continue looking out for the users, to make sure that they can recreate and enjoy this incredible resource in our community. We need to make sure that “users” include everyone that uses the river- from tourists, to residents of Central Oregon, to the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. We need to make sure that we are irrigating responsibly so that our awesome farmers and ranchers can continue what they do. But most of all, we need to make sure that the river is getting what it needs. If the river is getting all that it needs, then the fish, the flies, the frogs, the beaver, the deer, the willow, the aspen, the alder and all of the things that rely on this incredible resource will get what they need. My connection to the river continues as I explore Central Oregon further. Whether skiing the mountains or running the river from Warm Springs to the Columbia—taking notice of the correlation between a good snow year, and the happy-looking river as that snow starts to feed the Deschutes, or years in which the riparian habitat thrives—my connection continues to grow.
THE RIVER IS LIFE by Lisa Windom, Board Member, Coalition for the Deschutes “The River brings life to my purpose and purpose to my life.”
By day, I am challenged to help manage the Deschutes River to sustain local agriculture, fish and wildlife, and communities. There are hard days beyond description, tears shed in sorrow over failures… failures to save fish impacted by fluctuations in the river flow or failures to save the multi-generation farms starved of water. But even through the hardship, the river brings us together, as families, farmers, business owners, recreationalists, and conservationists. We are all connected to this river; I am humbled by the river’s draw to surmount our differences.
PLOTTING FOR POLLINATORS Everyone needs pollinators! Bees and other pollinators are essential to many crops and other plants. Pollinators help plants live and reproduce by transferring pollen between the flowering plants. Because of pollinators we have everything from beautiful flowers to many of the foods we eat, including nuts, fruits and many vegetables. In fact, they are responsible for approximately one third of everything we eat! But there’s a problem. Due to many factors, including loss of habitat, disease, and use of pesticides, pollinators (especially bees) are in decline around the world. Through our Plotting for Pollinators (P4P) program, Coalition for the Deschutes is committed to helping keep bees and other pollinators healthy. Last year, we planted 11.5 acres of native wildflowers on farms to help the bees, and this year we will be planting another 12 acres. In addition, we are working with Central Oregon Irrigation District to plant pollinator flowers atop piped canals in and around Bend.

Collaboration is invaluable to the health of the river, our communities, and our future. Without collaboration, we all lose. I have moments when I am angry, jealous, or saddened by the management of this river; I’m not alone in these sentiments. But letting these emotions divide and alienate will only isolate and silence my voice. We are blessed with water leaders dedicated to the collaborative mission. This work carries weight beyond comprehension. Please thank those who carry the weight of this watershed on their shoulders. They sacrifice more than could be imagined.
“Every river deserves a smart, engaged, committed organization that's dedicated to working together with others for the health of the stream and everything it touches. All who care about this great Oregon waterway have that in the Coalition for the Deschutes.” — Tim Palmer, Author/Photographer, River Advocate COLLATION FOR DESCHUTES COALITION FORTHE THE DESCHUTES

AWAKENING YOUR INNER HERO
By Burt Gershater
A column to help locals live a kinder and more courageous life
Where Did the Time Go?
s many of you know, I am a recent resident of Bend. My wife Wendy and I have been here six months, after living in Flagstaff, Arizona, for 50 years. We’re still a bit disoriented, but we do know how to get to a few more places in Bend this month than we did last month. Especially Wendy. Whenever we talk to either old friends from Flagstaff or our new friends and family in Bend, we are nearly always asked the same question: “How are you adjusting to your new lives?” It’s a good question. People care about us and are concerned about our well-being. To be uprooted after a half a century of wonderful lives in northern Arizona can’t be easy for two older folks. Whenever asked, I generally ponder this thoughtful question to make sure I am not offering up a rote answer to their inquiry. I slow down, take a breath or two, and replay the past few days. How am I really doing?
As a counselor for many years I have seen, both in myself and my clients, that time can be all these things. But lately my concern about time and how we deal with it has increased. Stress levels seem to have grown. Palpable anxiety is creeping into all age groups, from our young ones to us elders. Livi’s pediatrician told Jessie the other day that he has never seen so many patients feeling anxious in ways they hadn’t before. I am also seeing stress levels increasing in my clients. How about you? Your family, friends? What are you noticing these days? Sometimes it’s hard to spot when we’re all in it together. We live in a culture that worships doing. If we are doing, then we are being productive, making progress. We’re being responsible, helpful, worthy. Do your homework. Clean the house. Work overtime. Work out. Do this. Do that. The more we do the more productive we are. We have become experts and even addicts at filling up time.
With so much to do and limited time to do it, we tend to fall into the all-too-familiar hurrying pattern. Ironically, hurrying rarely, if ever, provides us with more time. Images float into my mind of recent happenings. Invariably the images that appear are nearly the same every time I search for the answer. I see one or both of our grandchildren, Livi and Lyza, skipping, running, holding hands, sometimes holding an umbrella as they make their way from their back door to ours. Nearly always smiling every step of the way. The trip takes from 30 to 60 seconds, depending on the day. After nearly six months of watching them come down the hill, we still can’t quite believe this is our new life. My answer to the question, so far, has been, “We can’t believe how lucky we are. We’re adjusting very well!” Yesterday we celebrated our daughter Jessie Ann’s birthday, the remarkable mama of Livi and Lyza. She was 39. Where did the time go? Fifty years. Thirty-nine years. Six months. Thirty seconds. And I am going to turn 75 this week! Time keeps rolling. Everything that happens, happens in time. Time is always going whether we are or not. What is it? When is it? Is it a friend? An enemy? A partner?
With so much to do and limited time to do it, we tend to fall into the all-too-familiar hurrying pattern. Ironically, hurrying rarely, if ever, provides us with more time. We make more mistakes, which means we need to make corrections, and that takes more time. We get edgy and short with the people we love and that takes more time. There are hurt feelings and resentments. Not great ways to spend our precious time. The path to creating more time, or at least slowing down time, is to take our foot off the gas pedal and be less productive—in the traditional sense. Productivity and progress come in two distinct ways. One is in the outer world, the world of doing where we actually change or create things. This is the familiar one. The less familiar one and the one most of us need more of is the inward journey—a journey to continue to reveal our own essence, purpose and path to self-improvement. This journey slowly returns us to who we truly are and who we’ve always been. And this takes its own sacred time.
Wellness Hits the Road
Q&A with Gather Sauna House, a new mobile sauna By Megan Burton
GSH: I decided to start small and test the concept of sauna in Bend with one mobile unit and then right about that time, COVID hit. It was then that I knew there was another very good reason to have followed my intuition on the mobile front. With everyone in isolation and unable to access their normal health and wellness routines, this would be something that I could bring to others in the safety of their own home. The dream is to eventually have a fleet of mobile saunas for private rental, a semi-permanent or permanent sauna village and a custom sauna building arm so that we help others meet their mobile or backyard wellness dreams and goals as well! SW: What kind of events are you most excited to bring your sauna experience to in the future? GSH: We have set up the sauna in people’s driveways after a morning adventure such as snowshoeing and mountain biking—or we’ve taken it to Mt. Bachelor so that a group could retire to the sauna in the parking lot after! In the future, with proper permitting, we plan to be able to take the sauna to any

allowable outdoor space. Camping, kayaking and SUP, fishing, bird hunting, cross country skiing—you name it, and we can take it to the next level by bringing the heat! Last weekend we got to participate in an event with LOGE Camp Bend where similar values of cultivating community through the outdoors and health and wellness activities
make us natural partners in my mind. I hope to do much more of this kind of collaboration in the future! Upcoming Community Sauna Dates Fri., June 11 at Varekai Ranch, Tumalo Sun., June 13 & Mon., June 14 at The Coyote Den, Tumalo Gathersaunahouse.com $154.50 for a 90 min session for up to 4

ot long ago I chatted with Halina Kowalski and Amber Holm, the team behind a new mobile sauna house, while getting my own steam on. Stepping into The Coyote Den with the Gather Sauna House nestled on its property, truly feels like you are being transported into a Baltic spa getaway. We sweated and relaxed while learning more about traditional sauna and holistic wellness. Source Weekly: Can you explain a little bit more about what inspired you to create a mobile sauna? Gather Sauna House: I was exploring plans to open a brick and mortar in Bend for several years until I became aware of a few mobile saunas popping up across the world. Since traditional sauna is usually enjoyed by natural water, I thought this would be the perfect way to take advantage of Central Oregon’s beautiful natural spaces! The mobile aspect allows the sauna to be enjoyed in any outdoor landscape you could possibly dream up. SW: Why did you go mobile and tell me more about your plans to expand?

Mural Takes Shape in Franklin Tunnel Proyecto Mural initiative brings more public art to the Bend Central District By Nicole Vulcan
Latinx community of Central Oregon. For the project, Mecca Bend partnered with Central Oregon LandWatch— the land use and policy planning organization that’s spearheaded the Bend Central District initiative to foster an inclusive, vibrant mixed-use neighborhood east of downtown Bend. The artists, stakeholders, and high schoolers from Central Oregon Community College’s ¡AVANZA! program participated in a series of conversations about art, culture and place, all facilitated by an art therapist. “What was really important to me and doing this with Mecca is that representation that needs to be brought forth,” Llerandi told the Source Weekly. With the mural, its creators hope to bring more visibility and recognition to a portion of the community that is not often brought to the forefront. As the
“Part of this project is to bridge east and west, to bring attention to this really problematic area and to have a community-oriented way to re-envision it and really partner with the people on the ground.” —Moey Newbold Peru. The group selected two local artists, Carly Vargas Garzon and Melinda Martinez, to draw and paint the imagery. “It was important to bring in folks that were of a variety of perspectives and a variety of roles,” said Janet Sarai Llerandi, founder of Mecca Bend, a local nonprofit offering resources for the
planning for the mural unfolded, more and deeper meanings for each of the themes began to emerge, Llerandi said. “The themes that you see in the actual art itself that were designed by Carly and Melinda were words essentially that we put together and helped guide and say, what is your priority, what matters

to you, what do you love about your culture and how is that different than the culture that you’re in now.” As Llerandi said, one stakeholder summed up the project perfectly by saying, “It’s our stamp on Bend.” Adding more art to the area is just one element in an effort to bring not just beauty, but more safety to an area that can be unsafe for pedestrians and cyclists traveling to and from downtown to east Bend. “Part of this project is to bridge east and west, to bring attention to this really problematic area and to have a community-oriented way to re-envision it and really partner with the people on the ground—including the unhoused people for whom sometimes it’s their only shelter,” said Moey Newbold, director of urban planning for COLW.

“It’s been really positive,” Newbold said of Proyecto Mural. “I personally love being down there and just being able to talk to the people who are walking or biking through. Many people do it on a very regular basis—people are excited to see some attention being paid to that area. They talk about how they would love to see the streets be safer.” Officially, the area around the Franklin Avenue underpass is part of the City of Bend’s Core Area, a zone hugging the Bend Parkway that city leaders have identified as eligible for “streetscape improvements, public spaces, gateways, affordable housing, or art and beautification programs.” The people behind Proyecto Mural plan to have a grand opening celebration for the mural the weekend of June 12.

community mural project aimed at celebrating and bringing more visibility to Central Oregon’s Latinx community is nearing completion in the Franklin Avenue railroad tunnel in downtown Bend. The project, titled Proyecto Mural, brought together local artists, a group of stakeholders from the Bend Central District and dozens of volunteers to complete the mural that now adorns the southern pedestrian tunnel under the railroad tracks along Franklin Avenue. The project is a complement to the mural in the northern pedestrian tunnel, “Two for Joy,” completed by the late Kaycee Anseth in 2019. As a community-created project, the images on the Proyecto Mural piece represent themes introduced by local people who live or work in the BCD and who hail from four Latin American countries, including Mexico, Cuba, El Salvador and

Put the Ravish in the Radish LITTLE BITES Lightly roasting those radishes offers a new take on a prolific spring veggie

The Cove Offers a New Place to Eat, Drink and Splash
When prepared properly, the rowdy radish can be kept from crashing any salad party.
his time of year, the radishes stand out like bright bunches of candy. Sometimes at the farmers market I ask the vendors what to do with their pretty orbs, because I am chronically at a loss for ideas. The most common guidance, by far, is to use radishes in salads and stir-fries. In other words, the farmers are just as clueless as I am. Those sassy, juicy roots are tricky. Unadulterated, the feisty flavor of a radish is more difficult to appreciate than that of, say, an apple or carrot. And in mixed company of a gentle bowl of leaves, that blast of mustard fire can stick out awkwardly. In the case of a stir-fry, the task is to not overcook the radish to a catatonic state with nothing to offer but limp, bland remains. I can think of some great Thai stirfries that begin with pickled radish, which has a unique and enduring flavor. But I’ve yet to find a stir-fry that was improved by cooking fresh, non-pickled radish. When it comes to adding radish to salads, the possible downside is greater. A fresh radish in a salad can be like a drunk passenger on a plane to Vegas. Obnoxious, loud, overpowering your bowl of leaves in its delicate vinaigrette, unless it’s applied just so, accompanied by just the right handlers. The other day, the rowdy radish proved me wrong, by way of a salad from The Camino, a Mexican-esque restaurant in Missoula, Montana. The food is unique and well-researched, down to the house-nixtamalized corn in the tortillas, tamales and posole. The Camino’s owners, Phil Schaefer and Tad Hilton, were kind enough to share the recipe for their humbly-named “Arugula Salad,” created by their sous chef Rob Troiano. “We wanted to do a spring salad,” explained Hilton, “And we wanted to use
ingredients that we use in a lot of the dishes like the guajillo vinaigrette, which is mostly lime and guajillo powder with shallots and a little agave.” This citrus chile vinaigrette dresses the arugula and toppings, which include toasted almonds, shaved onion, diced avocado, roasted radishes and raw chayote squash, a pear-shaped unit with light green, ruddy skin that’s ubiquitous, Hilton says, in Mexico and Mexican food. The radishes are lightly roasted, which preserves their crunch while taking enough edge off their fiery essence that the chile, lime, arugula and shallots can form a smooth transition, and help the radish blend in rather than stick out. The avocado and chayote squash, meanwhile, serve as refuge, creamy, crunchy and refreshingly bland. Arugula Salad with Roasted Radishes, a la The Camino The key, says Hilton, is to not overwork the leaves. This is not a tossed salad. Arugula is fragile. “We build the salad on the arugula base and layer everything on, and drizzle the dressing over it, so it doesn’t wilt the arugula.” A guajillo pepper is by definition dried (it goes by a different name, mirasol, when fresh), and anything guajillo touches is practically Mexican by definition. If you can’t find guajillo, try your favorite dried chile. And if you can’t get chayote squash, try using daikon radish, which brings similar qualities to the table. Schaefer recommends pairing it with a chilled L.A. Cetto Chenin Blanc from Baja Mexico’s Guadeloupe Valley. Guajillo Lime Vinaigrette Juice of two limes (about 2 ounces) Zest of one lime 1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon agave nectar 1 small shallot, minced 2 guajillo peppers (or a tablespoon of guajillo powder) 1 cup oil (they use a neutral canola. I prefer the bitterness of olive oil here) Gently roast the guajillo peppers in a dry pan until crispy but not burnt. (I use the same pan to simultaneously toast the almonds for the salad, below.) When cool, remove the stem and seeds from the toasted peppers and pulverize the remains in a blender or mortar and pestle. (Omit this step if you are using guajillo powder) Combine the lime zest and juice in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the salt, agave, shallots and chile powder and stir it together. Whisk in the oil. The Salad Five radishes, trimmed such that a little stem and the long taproot remain Oil to coat the radishes 3 cups fresh arugula ¼ cup shaved onions 3 tablespoons toasted almond slivers ½ cup diced chayote squash (or daikon radish) ½ cup diced avocado Black pepper and salt to taste ½ cup chopped herb mix of chives, cilantro and epazote – if available. 3 tablespoons Guajillo lime dressing Toss the radishes in oil, salt and pepper and roast whole at 375 degrees for 16 minutes. When cool, slice them in half along the stem-to-tail axis. Add the arugula to a plate, topped with radish halves, shaved onions, toasted almond slivers, chayote or diakon pieces, and finally the herb mix. Grind black pepper over the whole thing, add a pinch of salt, and drizzle the whole thing with the Guajillo Lime Vinaigrette.
Sunriver Resort is upping its waterpark game this month with the reopening of The Cove, its newly renovated facility that offers double the space of its former outdoor pool, including indoor and outdoor places to play. Patrons can also check out the Spotted Frog, The Cove’s poolside food and drink spot, complete with a full bar. Previously consisting mostly of an outdoor pool, Sunriver Resort sunk $40 million into updating and expanding The Cove. Now there’s an indoor heated pool with a two-story spiral waterslide, an indoor jetted spa and a float channel indoors, as well as its outdoor plunge slide and splash pool. The space was scheduled to have an official ribbon cutting on Wednesday, June 9. The Spotted Frog menu includes cocktails such as the Cove Collins— with Gompers Gin, St. Germaine, lemon and lime, and the Lava Flow, described as a combo between a piña colada and a strawberry blend. Menu items include burgers, wraps, salads, appetizers—and of course, a kid’s menu. The Cove also offers a patio and lawn with a 12,000-square-foot space for events. Reservations for The Cove are available up to seven days in advance for guests booked at the resort. The Cove Aquatic Center at Sunriver Resort

The Conjuring series returns Strong…if subdued By Jared Rasic Courtesy HBOMax
don’t like to say that I’m obsessed with “The Conjuring” Universe but… yeah, I’ve watched most of the movies in the series at least two or three times each and sometimes write fan fiction that’s set in the world. I’m even aware that some of the movies in the series are terrible, but that didn’t really stop me from watching them entirely more times than they deserved. Point is: knowing that a third “Conjuring” movie was going to be released in theaters and on HBOMax simultaneously last Friday had me more excited than I’ve been for a movie all year. “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” is the third movie in “The Conjuring” franchise and the eighth movie overall in “The Conjuring” Cinematic Universe following three “Annabelle” movies, “The Nun” and “The Curse of La Llorona.” If I had to rate the franchise from best to worst, it would go something like this: #8: “Annabelle” (2014) #7: “The Curse of La Llorona” (2019) #6: “The Nun” (2018) #5: “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” (2021) #4: “Annabelle Comes Home” (2019) #3: “The Conjuring 2” (2016) #2: “Annabelle: Creation” (2017) #1: “The Conjuring” (2013) It’s not usually a good sign when the first movie in your shared cinematic universe is still the best one, but even the worst of the films still has at least one or two excellent spooky moments—and

since there are so few great big-budget horror movies getting released, I tend to take what I can get. The center of the entire franchise are Ed and Lorraine Warren, two real-life “demonologists” and paranormal investigators. There’s quite a bit of evidence that they might have been a little insane at best and hucksters at worst, but with Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson playing them in the series, the Warrens are easy to root for and extremely compelling protagonists. Throughout the franchise they face down the Amityville House, multiple possessions, so very many haunted old farmhouses, the most evil doll ever, and in “The Devil Made Me Do It,” a young man who committed murder while under the control of a demon.

One thing I respect so much about “The Conjuring” series is that each film genuinely feels different from the other ones. “The Nun” is full-blown gothic Hammer Horror, “La Llorona” probes Mexican folklore and “Annabelle: Creation” feels like something Guillermo del Toro would have been proud to make with its plucky orphans taking on a demonic doll. I can see why audiences and critics might be disappointed in this newest “Conjuring” tale, because it’s almost a courtroom drama combined with a character study and forgoes a lot of the typical jump scares that come out of the modern Hollywood horror machine. It’s definitely not as scary as some of the other movies, but it’s still a great story and has some of the most ingenious
cinematography and direction I’ve seen in a horror flick in quite some time. “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” feels like an actual film. The stakes are high, the characters are well-developed and the quiet, slow burn of horror is perfectly paced, but it’s not flashy like the “It” movies or massively disturbing like “3 From Hell.” This feels like old-school horror at its best, filled with quiet moments, long takes of dark rooms and characters you don’t want to see get swallowed by a demon. Oh, “Conjuring,” I just can’t quit you. “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It”

ONDA’s Wild Desert Calendar Last call for photo submissions for the 2022 calendar
Photographers are encouraged to answer ONDA’s call for submissions for the 2022 Wild Desert Calendar which runs through June 12. “Oregon Natural Desert Association wants to see the desert’s special lands, waters and wildlife protected,” said Lace Thornberg, ONDA communications manager. “We know that people protect what they love, and the Wild Desert Calendar shows off just how much there is to love in the high desert.” Five photographers whose stunning images have graced many a past calendar offer some sage advice on how to turn a snapshot into a legacy-lasting image on ONDA’s website. Planning, patience, and knowledge of the area is a constant refrain that underlies the photographers’ work. Greg Burke, a longtime desert photographer who helped establish ONDA’s annual calendar contest, suggests, “In high-contrast scenes with sky or reflections, it’s best to expose for the brightest part of the image. There is a wealth of detail in the dark shadows that can be recovered in post-processing; not so much in overexposed highlights.” In addition to stunning landscape images, photographers may also submit photos of wildlife, plants and people enjoying wild spaces and places throughout Oregon’s desert landscape. Contributors will be entered into a drawing for a stay at Summer Lake Hot Springs. The beautiful calendar is a great conservation tool for ONDA, showcasing stunning wild places where a picture is truly worth a thousand words. See the ONDA website for submission details.

VOLUME 25 ISSUE 23 / JUNE 10, 2021 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
n other years, the month of June is marked by Pride parades in cities around the globe—including here in Bend. While the pandemic may be waning and more events are starting to come, OUT Central Oregon and its partners opted to focus energy during this year’s Pride Month on smaller activities beyond a parade. The Source chatted with OCO President Jamie Nesbitt and board member Ronald Quiris about the plans for this month. “This year we weren’t able to have our big Pride event as normal, so we have events spread out through the month,” said Quiris, who joined the OCO board this month and will perform as Caressa Banana during the June 13 Drag Brunch at 10 Barrel East. That event—and another drag show—are already sold out. “Definitely stay tuned,” Quiris said. “I know a lot of the shows or events are sold out or booked but we’re also trying to talk about potentially having more events as well.” Films at Tin Pan Alley, an ongoing partnership with BendFilm and OOC, will also include several showings geared toward those celebrating Pride. “We have a partnership with BendFilm that we started about a year and a half ago called OUT In Focus,” Nesbitt said. “The idea behind that is to bring queer film, whether it was queer artists, queer directors, filmmakers—get that media to Bend for the community to be able to see.” In June, that partnership includes showings of “The Wizard of Oz” and “Paris is Burning.” OOC, formed three years ago in an effort to bring together the LGBTQ community—and to foster inclusivity in the outdoors—is also excited to be reinstating its LGBTQ Climb Night at The Circuit Bouldering Gym in Bend. “This was an event that we started
Crazy 8: A Primer on Delta-8 THC
The psuedo-legal pot that everyone’s talking about WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / JUNE 10, 2021 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE
By Josh Jardine
f you enjoy cannabis, that’s largely due to the major cannabinoid Delta-9 THC. A cultivar’s THC content listed at a dispensary, containing generally 14-30+% THC? That’s overwhelmingly Delta-9. Being a major cannabinoid, it gets the most attention and regulation. It’s the reason that CBD products sold outside a medical/adult use cannabis program must have .3% or less THC. Any more and it becomes a “controlled substance.” That amount was deemed to be the limit after hemp became legal as part of the Farm Bill of 2018. The free market has always understood that people enjoy various levels and forms of intoxication, and a long line of products— good, questionable, and deadly—have been developed and sold using cannabis as a reference point. The newest are products that contain the minor cannabinoid Delta-8 THC, aka Delta-8. Because it’s produced from hemp-derived CBD, it’s legal! Or legal-ish, as very recently it’s increasingly been made illegal; then again, maybe the feds say it already is? Let’s take a look. What does Delta-8 THC do? Users say the experience is psychoactive, but the high is much milder than Delta-9 and free of the less-desirable effects experienced by some users of Delta-9, such as paranoia and anxiety. Benefits include focus and relaxation. Studies have shown that Delta-8 from cannabis is effective for pain relief, nausea, increasing appetite and sleep. The ability to produce hemp-derived Delta-8 has become big business for hemp producers, and for those who make and sell products featuring this Delta-8. It’s especially sought out in states that don’t have access to regulated and legal cannabis through medical or adult-use programs. As with CBD products, Delta-8 products are widely available at gas stations, mini marts and other storefronts, sold as smokable flower, vape cartridges, edibles and numerous other formats. How big is the Delta-8 industry? Forbes reports that the hemp-derived Delta-8 powerhouse, Lifted Made company, “is traded over-the-counter, has a $50 million market cap and generated $4.1 million in revenue in 2019. It ships Delta-8 edibles, vapes and flower to most states in the U.S.” So, this is totally legal then? Lifted Made CEO and Founder Nick Warrender says he’s confident that he follows the law exactly as written. “The way [the federal government] defines

Enjoy your Delta-8 products now, while you still can.
THC is very specific. It’s not very grey. It’s black and white,” he said. “From a scientific standpoint, cannabis and hemp are the same plant, but under the law they are completely different things. It’s rather ridiculous.” Numerous states have hastily enacted new rules and laws banning the production and sale of hemp-derived Delta-8 and the products containing it. Colorado and New York are two of the latest, and Oregon has a bill that would impose new regulations as well. KOIN Channel 6 reports that Oregon House Bill 3000 would “allow the OLCC [Oregon Liquor Control Commission] to set potency limits on artificially derived cannabinoids, as well as clarify requirements for testing hemp cannabinoid consumable products” as well as “establish a task force to explore how new consumable cannabis products should fit into Oregon’s legal cannabis market.” Aka taxed, tested, taxed, regulated and then taxed. What about the feds? The federal government classifies Delta-8 as a “controlled substance,” along with Delta-9 THC, so that’s not a promising harbinger for the continued unfettered access that now exists. Andrea Golan, a Los Angeles attorney specializing in hemp regulatory and compliance issues, tells Leafly that the, “Federal Analogue Act—passed in 1986 and meant to combat synthetically-made “designer drugs”—holds that any drugs that are similar in chemical structure, and that have a similar (actual or intended) effect similar or greater to a that of a controlled substance, and are intended for human consumption, must be treated as a Schedule I or Schedule II controlled substance.” So if you are vibing hard with the wide range of Delta-8 products on non-dispensary shelves, scoop them up now while you still can. Chances are good they won’t be there much longer.

ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I’m glad you’re not on the planet Saturn right now. The winds there can blow at 1,000 miles per hour. But I would like you to feel a brisk breeze as you wander around in nature here on Earth. Why? Because according to my interpretation of the current astrological omens, winds will have a cleansing effect on you. They will clear your mind of irrelevant worries and trivial concerns. They’ll elevate your thoughts as well as your feelings. Do you know the origin of the English word “inspire”? It’s from the Latin word inspirare, meaning “blow into, breathed upon by spirit.” Its figurative meaning is “to inspire, excite, inflame.” The related Latin word spiritus refers to “a breathing of the wind” and “breath of a god”— hence “inspiration; breath of life.”

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancerian author Franz Kafka put his characters into surreal dilemmas. In his novella The Metamorphosis, for example, the hero wakes up one day to find he has transformed into a giant insect. Despite his feral imagination, however, Kafka had a pragmatic relationship with consumerism. “I do not read advertisements,” he said. “I would spend all of my time wanting things.” In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to adopt his earthy attitude for the next two weeks. Take a break from wanting things, period. Experiment with feeling free of all the yearnings that constantly demand your attention. Please note: This break in the action won’t be forever. It’s just a vacation. When you return to wanting things, your priorities will have been realigned and healed, and you’ll feel refreshed.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Author Umberto Eco declared that beauty is boring because it “must always follow certain rules.” A beautiful nose has to be just the right shape and size, he said, while an “ugly nose” can be ugly in a million different unpredictable ways. I find his definition narrow and boring, and prefer that of philosopher Francis Bacon, who wrote, “There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.” Poet Charles Baudelaire agreed, saying, “That which is not slightly distorted lacks sensible appeal: from which it follows that irregularity—that is to say, the unexpected, surprise and astonishment—is an essential part and characteristic of beauty.” Then there’s the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, which reveres beauty that’s imperfect, transitory, and incomplete. Beginning now, and for the rest of 2021, Leo, I encourage you to ignore Eco’s dull beauty and cultivate your relationship with the more interesting kind. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): One of the more evocative passages in J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel The Return of the King is about the warrior Éowyn. It says, “Then the heart of Éowyn changed, or else at last she understood it. And suddenly her winter passed, and the sun shone on her.” I’m predicting a comparable transformation for you in the near future, Virgo. There’ll be some fundamental shift in the way your heart comprehends life. When that happens, you will clearly fathom some secrets about your heart that have previously been vague or inaccessible. And then the sun will shine upon you with extra brilliance.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran actor and author Carrie Fisher had more than the average number of inner demons. Yet she accomplished a lot, and was nominated for and won many professional awards. Here’s the advice she gave: “Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident.” I hope you’ll employ that strategy in the coming weeks, dear Libra. The time is favorable for you to work hard on your number one goal no matter what your emotions might be at any particular moment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821–1881) had a gambling addiction for many years. At one point, he lost so
much money betting on roulette that he had to take drastic measures. He wrote a novella in record time—just 16 days—so as to raise money to pay his debt. The story was titled The Gambler. Its hero was a not-very-successful gambler. Is there a comparable antidote in your future, Scorpio? A gambit that somehow makes use of the problem to generate the cure? I suspect there is.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In her poem “Escape,” Michelle Tudor addresses a lover: “Inside of you: a dream raging to be set free.” She implies that she would like to be a collaborator who provides assistance and inspiration in liberating her companion’s dream. The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to make a similar offer to an ally you care for—and to ask that ally to do the same for you. And by the way: What is the dream inside you that’s raging to be set free? And what’s the dream inside your comrade? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Author Martha Beck has helpful counsel for you to keep returning to during the coming weeks. “It isn’t necessary to know exactly how your ideal life will look,” she writes. “You only have to know what feels better and what feels worse. Begin making choices based on what makes you feel freer and happier, rather than on how you think an ideal life should look. It’s the process of feeling our way toward happiness, not the realization of the Platonic ideal, that creates our best lives.” AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian author James Dickey celebrated “the holy secret of flowing.” But he added, “You must be made for it.” In other words, he implied that the secret of flowing is a luxury only some of us have access to. And because we “must be made for it,” he seemed to suggest that being in possession of the secret of flowing is due to luck or genetics or privilege. But I reject that theory. I think anyone can tap into the secret of flowing if they have the desire and intention to do so. Like you! Right now! You’re primed to cultivate a robust relationship with the holy flow. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Why do humans enjoy much longer life spans than other higher primates? Here’s one reason: grandmothers. Anthropologists propose that earlier in our evolution, families with elder females especially thrived. The grandmothers helped care for children, ensuring greater health for everyone as well as a higher rate of reproduction than grandmother-less broods. Their longevity genes got passed on, creating more grandmothers. Lucky! Having older women around while growing up has been key to the success of many of us. In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to celebrate and honor the role your own grandmothers and female elders have played in your life. And if you’re a grandmother, celebrate and honor yourself! ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries actor Leonard Nimoy became mega-famous by playing the role of Spock, an alien from the planet Vulcan in the Star Trek franchise. He always enjoyed the role, but in 1975 he wrote an autobiography called I Am Not Spock. In it, he clarified how different he was from the character he performed. In 1995, Nimoy published a follow-up autobiography, I Am Spock, in which he described the ways in which he was similar to the fictional alien. In the spirit of Nimoy’s expansive self-definition, Aries, and in accordance with current astrological potentials, I invite you to make it clear to people exactly who you and who you aren’t.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The poet Rumi declared, “A lover has four streams inside, of water, wine, honey, and milk.” With that in mind, Taurus, I will recommend that you seek a boost in the honey department. Your passions and feelings have been flowing along fairy well, but lately they’ve lacked some sweetness. As a result, you’re not receiving as much of the sweetness you need from the world around you. So your assignment is to intensify the honey stream within you! Remember the principle, “Like attracts like.”

VOLUME 25 ISSUE 23 / JUNE 10, 2021 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
I’ve been dating a guy for three months, and I’d like us to be exclusive, but I don’t know how to go about addressing it. I’m worried that if I say I need him to commit, he’ll feel pressured and bolt. —Quandary For a man, agreeing to go exclusive is a bit like wedding vows lite, as posed to the man’s penis: “Do you swear off sex with all the other ladies forever?” Penis: “Frankly, that sounds a little grim.” Men evolved to have the hots for sexual variety—casual sex with a slew-apalooza of different partners— to a degree women do not. (An ancestral woman could get pregnant and stuck with a kid to raise after a single hookup with some rando, while the more randos Grok had sex with, the more likely he was to pass on his genes.) Feminist scholars contend that “patriarchal” culture—not evolution—leads to men’s greater preference for the sexual variety pack, but it even shows up in “gender-egalitarian” Norway. Evolutionary scientist Leif Edward Ottesen Kennair and his colleagues asked Norwegian men and women the number of sex partners they’d want over a 30-year period. Women, on average, wanted about five sex partners. Men? About 25! Still, many men eventually tire of the swipe-right hussy of the night lifestyle (which, admittedly, isn’t an option for men low on the mate-value ladder) and start feeling ready for a relationship. However, even if this guy’s open to commitment and maybe already pointed in that direction, consider the lesson from “psychological reactance,” a term coined by psychologist Jack Brehm. Our getting the sense that somebody’s trying to control us, limit our freedom, motivates us to “react”: rebel against being controlled. Give yourself a (silent) deadline so you won’t be waiting around forever, and then ask him how he sees things going forward: what he’s looking for, what works for him. The conversation itself should give him the sense that you might be headed for the door if he doesn’t boyfriend up. Wanting to be with you might motivate him to make the necessary sexual trade-off—which is ultimately a pretty big deal for a dude. Picture the Souplantation buffet, but all those stainless steel bins are filled with the same one item, and you’ll have to eat it for every meal for the rest of your life: “Welcome to the suburban gulag. Table for two?” Am
Last year, I broke up with the man I was engaged to and loved deeply. I’d found out he was cheating on me constantly with many different women throughout our relationship. My life has gone on, but I often think of what he did to me and feel incredible anger. I’d like to forgive him, but I’m not sure how to do that when these feelings pop up throughout my week. —Stuck It’s hard to move on emotionally when you not only have a grudge but take it everywhere with you like a cockroach on a little yarn leash. This isn’t to say you should forgive the guy. There’s this assumption that forgiving someone who’s wronged you is the healthy, constructive thing to do—and, sure, it can be. Evolutionary social psychologist Michael McCullough defines forgiveness as “an internal process of getting over your ill will for an offender.” He explains that forgiveness is “adaptive”—functional, beneficial—when there’s a valuable relationship at stake: when you’d benefit from continuing contact with the perp (and it seems unlikely they’ll be a repeat offender— harm you again in a similar way). But you aren’t looking to re-up with the guy! And you probably have zero indication he’s changed anything— aside from which woman he’s two-timing (or, uh, 22-timing, as a rough quarterly estimate). What you’re really seeking is peace of mind. Consider that anger, like forgiveness, can be functional. The anger you still have probably remains for a reason: a warning sign that you’re in danger of being cheated on again. But there’s a way to shut off that alert—and protect yourself in the future—and it’s by turning this into a learning experience. Be accountable for the part you played in what happened—not because, “Yay, blame the victim!”— but because it’s the part you can control. Did you, perhaps, want so badly to believe you’d found love that you ignored signs you’d landed a cheating creep posing as an adoring boyfriend? Being honest about what you could— and should—have done differently can become your guide for what you will do differently the next guy around. A man can give you the sense he has a moral compass, but it’s best you give it a hard look to see it isn’t cracked and dusty from constantly being dropped in other women’s bedrooms.

Tips for a cool + comfortable home energy than an A/C unit. Make sure to switch the direction of the fan blades in the summer, so it pushes the air downward. In the winter the fan should pull the air upward. Consider installing fans in places where people congregate, such as the living room, kitchen or bedroom. On hot days, keep the windows closed and the fan running. In the evening when temps start to fall, do a night air flush by placing box fans near open windows to push hot air outside. Then close the windows in the morning, trapping the cold air inside. Consider the installation of a whole-house fan which can be operated manually or programmed to evacuate the hot air out of the home. It’s very similar to the box fan method but is much more effective. Intentionally using shade from planting trees or building a lanai or pergola in strategic locations will also help keep the heat from radiating in the home and can help offer cooler outdoor spaces as well. Install a programmable thermostat for the central A/C and turn it up 3-5 degrees while at work, and it will use less energy, in turn saving on utility bills. Replace hot incandescent light bulbs with cool incandescent bulbs or cook meals in the evening and serve them cold during the day to limit heat from a stove and help keep the home cool. Using some of these DIY tips and a little sweat equity will help cut costs and keep your home cooler this summer season.

entral Oregonians can always beat the summer heat with trips to the rivers and lakes; however, that refreshing relief doesn’t have to stop at home and doesn’t have to break the bank with high electric bills. There are ways to keep a home cooler and more comfortable, while reducing energy consumption. A big step in making any home perform better all around, especially while heating or cooling, is to seal the air gaps in the home—areas where outside air sneaks in. This includes areas of damaged weatherstripping around doors and windows, holes around utilities entering the home and locations where dampers may be open such as fireplaces and range exhaust hoods. “The average U.S. house has enough gaps around places like door frames and windows to equal a 3-by-3foot hole in the wall,” says the U.S. Department of Energy, which offers a handy checklist of leak-prone areas to help you determine where to caulk and weather-strip on their website. (energy.gov/energysaver/weatherize/ air-sealing-your-home) Close blinds or shades on the sunny side of a home during the peak heat hours or all day while away at work. This will help prevent the home from turning into a greenhouse, putting more strain and burning dollars as the air conditioner tries to keep up. Using a ceiling fan may not physically make the air cooler, but it can make the room feel up to 4 degrees cooler and uses significantly less
