While Nicole Vulcan takes a well-deserved vacation, I’m honored to take the editor’s helm for a couple of weeks. It’s been quite a few years since I’ve steered this ship, and I’m pleased to note that The Source has weathered the pandemic - and other storms - remarkably well. It’s a testament to the talent and dedication of the tightknit crew that keeps her on course. Despite the thermometer insisting it’s Junuary, this week’s issue is chock-full of fun options for welcoming the balmy weather that June typically brings… eventually. Perhaps if we pretend it’s warm and sunny, we can collectively will summer into existence. With that goal in mind, we hope you’ll come out to play in Drake Park this weekend for Central Oregon’s Pride celebration and join some of the myriad other LGBTQ+ welcoming events happening all week long. We dare you to go on a butterfly hunt following hints from Deschutes Land Trust experts, and we encourage you to graze through Redmond’s lively food truck scene in the 7th Street Corridor, per Donna Britt’s recommendation. Finally, bring your clear bag and summer state of mind to the Bob Dylan show at Hayden Homes Amphitheater, but be prepared to put your cell phone in a locked pouch, per the folk legend’s orders. Cheers to summer!

Is Any Solution Good Enough for Critics of Managed Camps?




Open Daily for You and Your Pets Healthy Adventures Await!





s we pointed out in a June 9editorial, nonprofit Central Oregon Villages’ newly proposed managed camp aims to address most of the concerns locals cite for opposing managed camps for unhoused individuals in the City of Bend. The planned camp will be limited in size, allowing for some 20 small and temporary structures. The target residents are currently unhoused women and children, who will be required to agree to stipulations around sobriety, cleanliness, and conduct. Because the high-barrier camp will be sited on private land, residents and managers can enforce restrictions regarding who is allowed on the property, prohibiting the presence of unapproved and uninvited visitors who may not respect the rules. Operational funding will come from federal dollars allocated by the American Rescue Plan. By all accounts, the camp will be smaller, safer, and cleaner than existing camps, and will be managed effectively to minimize disruption for neighbors. Sounds good, right? Unfortunately, it’s not good enough for some locals, who complain that Central Oregon Villages is a Band-Aid solution to a gushing wound problem. To be fair, they’re not entirely wrong. Twenty structures won’t come close to providing enough shelter for the nearly 800 unhoused people identified during January’s Point In Time Count. And high-barrier camps – no matter how well they are managed – will do nothing to address the ongoing affordable housing crisis that created the need for camps in the first place. We acknowledge that Central Oregon Villages won’t solve Bend’s big and growing problem of homelessness. But what we’re doing now isn’t fixing the problem, either. It’s clear we can’t build our way out of this mess. Despite a boom in construction projects throughout the region, supply is not keeping up with demand as growth continues to drive up the cost of housing. And there is no

political will in Bend for publicly funded housing that working families can afford. Under federal court decisions in the 9th Circuit, cities are facing increased restrictions from enforcing anti-camping ordinances unless and until they have places for unhoused people to go. As more people lose their housing, Bend could see tent cities in more places, including public parks. In fact, a surge in homeless camps in Sonoma County, California, led the Santa Rosa city council to create a managed camp in the parking lot of a community center in an affluent neighborhood. County Supervisor James Gore, president of the California State Association of Counties, told the LA Times, “We know we’re pissing off a lot of people — they’re rising up and saying, ‘Hell, no!’ But we can’t just keep saying no. That’s been the failed housing policy of the last 30 to 40 years. Everybody wants a solution, but they don’t want to see that solution in their neighborhoods.” Remarkably, the 140-person camp was so well-managed that even the most adamantly opposed neighbors eventually came to embrace it. The tent city in Santa Rosa became a model for other communities in Sonoma County, changing the way they approached homeless services. Our hope is that Central Oregon Villages will provide proof of concept for a model that helps motivated individuals and families find their way out of sprawling camps and into safe housing. Once it’s up and running, we can build on its successes and improve on its shortcomings. It’s far from a complete fix, but it certainly can be a useful part of the solution, just as a Band-Aid is a useful item to include in a first aid kit. Let’s push forward with Central Oregon Villages so we can build on its successes and learn from any failures. When it comes to solving the homelessness crisis in Central Oregon, it’s time to stop making perfect the enemy of good.

Good to know there are a few good teachers left in this town. You don’t get an automatic 50% in life just for existing. These policies hurt kids and create an unrealistic expectation that sets them up for failure after high school. —Jeremy Eggert (from Facebook)

When I met with a few of local faith community leaders on the proposed site at Desert Streams Church last week, I was happy with their support and how quick the progress has been on this project. It was only last November when Michael Sipe and I discussed this site and he connected me with the pastor. I thank the congregation for getting involved with their land! It shows how much progress can quickly be accomplished with sound ideas and community collaboration. Thank you, Central Oregon Villages, for your crucial role. There will always be more work to do, but this is a great start! —Tony DeBone, LaPine

This is disgraceful use of journalism; please have each of your employees publicly post their name, address, and utility bills showing a year’s worth of usage and costs. Oh, that goes against their privacy? So does your ridiculous request for individual residential account information so that you can use it to bully and shame citizens of our community. The Source has crossed a line on this one, and Avion has taken the correct stance to protect their customers’ privacy.

Finally! A news entity that chooses to recognize reality about water use. Thank you, Source Weekly! The endless build-out pushed by developers with the “grow grow grow” mentality (our local rich good old boy builders, their government sycophants, and Avion Water) will be good for them, but also a disaster for our community. They are not giving ANY thought to future generations. “Let’s use ALL the water! We’ve got a 20 year supply. Woohoo!” It boggles the mind. Keep on it, Source! —Debby Black, Bend

APPOINTEES TO CITY COUNCIL I find it ironic that councilors Broadman and Campbell say they’d prefer someone who won’t run in November. There were 2 excellent candidates to fill the vacancies. Mark Capell and Judy Stiegler who as previous councilors could have stepped right in and got to work. Instead we get 2 people who have zero experience and Mitchell saying she has no plans to run but may change her mind if she thinks there’s more to contribute! She obviously has no clue that this job has a huge learning curve which she won’t conquer in 6 months! We need councilors with a financial and business background and someone who wants to slow Bend’s growth. Not people who benefit from growth or are in social services. I hope that we can entice some people with this type of experience to run in November to get a different kind of diversity on the council. It is badly needed! —Hanne Madsen, Bend

THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHERE THE WATER GOES Thank you for your work. Water use, particularly in the West, will continue to be of increasing importance. Where it comes from and where it goes is knowledge all of us have a right to know.

WHAT COULD GO WRONG? Let a private, for-profit company be in charge of delivering municipal water, they said. It will be cost-effective, they said. And what could go wrong? —Robin Will (from Facebook)

NO POINT PUBLISHING AVION EDITORIAL There is no point in publishing such an article. What do you stand to do? People pay for the water they use. Businesses pay for the water they use. Who cares? If water is so precious, which we know it is, then stop growth! Stop building in the desert. The fact is, growth is inevitable. It’s unstoppable. Your point of this article is to point fingers and attack those who have the right to spend their money where and how they want too.

—Belinda Liskh (from Facebook)

FALSE ACCUSATIONS Can one be sued for false claims AKA defamation when posting false accusations in headlines? Asking for a friend…. Can a privately owned utilities hand out private information without in turn getting sued for releasing said information to a journalist? Is Willamette Weekly hiring? Keep Bend friendly. —Tyler LeFebvre (from Facebook)

WHAT ABOUT THE DESERT? In your June 16 issue there were segments on the water, mountains and forest. You left out our stark and strikingly beautiful high desert. But I am glad you did, because that’s the only area we can still enjoy without being overrun by people. —Viki Wooster, Bend

Letter of the Week:

COUGH IT UP, AVION So great to hear that RCFP has joined your effort to get Avion to cough up the stats. Glad you chose to do your Opinion piece about it. I hope it is widely read. They’re called PUBLIC records for a reason. —Bruce Cummings, Bend

Viki: We are also big fans of the desert, whose subdued colors and subtle beauty are not always appreciated. You’re onto us: we are trying to keep a few secret spots to ourselves. Stop by the office for a gift card to Palate – on us. —Renée Alexander, guest editor

The City of Bend is exploring regulation of camps on City property, a year after creating a process for removing “unsafe” campsites By Jack Harvel


he City of Bend is considering creating codes to regulate unhoused campsites in public right of ways and City property. On June 15 the Bend City Council asked the City Manager to appoint a workgroup comprised of service providers, stakeholders and people who have experienced houselessness to perform community outreach and gather input from community members. Code created to regulate camping must comply with Martin v. Boise, a 2018 decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that barred cities from enforcing anti-camping ordinances if there isn’t a place for an unhoused person to go. The Oregon legislature codified that ruling into state law with House Bill 3115, which will go into effect in July 2023, but there’s still enough vagueness in the ruling that there’s no concrete idea of what restrictions will hold up. “I think the legislature’s perspective was, ‘We’re going to create this new law, we’re going to give the cities in Oregon some time to figure out what they’re doing, review their ordinances, get things tuned up, cleaned up, fixed so that they can be in compliance with these new standards,” said Bend Assistant City Attorney Ian Leitheiser. “We’re in that period where there’s still a lot of questions about what is going to work, what is going to be legally valid and what’s not, what kind of time, place and manner restrictions are going to be determined to be objectively reasonable but we’re not quite there yet where we have all those answers.” Time, place and manner are the areas where restrictions can be put in place. A time restriction would limit when someone could camp on public property, such as a ban on camping during the day. Place regulations can limit camping to certain identified streets, or can broadly say where they can’t exist — such as near established shelters, schools or ecologically sensitive areas. Manner restrictions could limit the number of campers in an area, cap the amount of space an individual campsite can take up, or ban behaviors like camps having open fires. The City already has a narrow policy to move unhoused camps in rights of way, but only if it meets certain benchmarks around fire hazards, accumulation of trash, calls for police service and impending roadways to a degree deemed unsafe by the City Manager. Since the policy’s approval in June 2021, it’s been used to sweep camps on Emmerson Avenue and Second Street. Martin v Boise restricts a city’s ability to move campsites, but it doesn’t require excess shelter beds like it’s often understood.

Jack Harvel

The Bend City Council created a campsite removal policy narrowly tailored to remove this campsite on Emmerson Avenue last year. Now, it’s considering broader camping regulations.

“The only way to practically apply that rule is to look at an individual basis: does this person have an alternative place to sleep, and if they don’t, the court says you can’t punish them for sleeping in public, which is an unavoidable consequence of being human if you have nowhere else to be,” said Bend Associate City Attorney Elizabeth Oshel. An individual assessment of someone’s options for entering a shelter or finding alternative housing is a lot of work. Deschutes County’s mobile crisis assessment team would be the point of contact for any individual assessment.

“If we’re going to be assessing people, and their life circumstances, and where they’re sleeping and what’s available, it’s essentially case management in a lot of ways, and that requires lots of training and lots of continuing education.” —MO MITCHELL “If we’re going to be assessing people, and their life circumstances, and where they’re sleeping and what’s available, it’s essentially case management in a lot of ways, and that requires lots of training and lots of continuing education,” said Bend City Councilor Mo Mitchell. Unsanctioned campsites continue to be a difficult issue in Bend. When the City amended shelter codes

without coming up with a solution,” said Bend City Councilor Anthony Broadman. “I agree with you this situation is going to be less fair for unhoused people, and less fair for the housed community as a result of people being moved off China Hat without a plan of where to go.”

last month it drew more than 100 people to the City Council’s regular meeting. Councilors said they’re urgently addressing the issue, but some added that it’s likely going to get worse before it gets better. The United States Forest Service cleared campsites off China Hat Road, which will likely lead to more people camping in the City, adding to the 785 people reported to be unhoused in Bend during 2022’s Point in Time Count. “I’m very disappointed that our partners in regional governments have notified us of actions that they’re taking regarding people experiencing homelessness, and I’m talking specifically about the Forest Service,

Hiker Airlifted Off South Sister

A climber waited overnight for a rescue after injuring himself By Jack Harvel Courtesy of Deschutes County Sheriff's Office


A 23-year-old man from Ithaca, New York, fell and injured himself after causing a small avalanche on South Sister on June 18, prompting a helicopter rescue with the assistance of the Oregon Army National Guard. The climber called 911 shortly before 7 p.m., saying he was unable to go down the mountain in his current state, and requested a helicopter evacuation. He was about 9,100 feet high on the 10,350 foot mountain. Weather prevented any rescue mission from taking place that night, requiring the hiker to stay overnight in a tent and sleeping bag. Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue’s Mountain Rescue Unit planned to scale the mountain the following morning, starting from Pole Creek Trailhead around 1 a.m. The Oregon Office of Emergency Management coordinated with the National Guard to provide a black hawk helicopter to conduct a hoist rescue on the downed hiker. The search and rescue team located the climber at 8:50 a.m. after a 9-mile trek up the mountain. The team assessed the hiker’s condition and moved him to an area where a helicopter rescue would be safer. The National Guard’s Helicopter launched from Salem and arrived on scene around 10:30 a.m. The search and rescue team hoisted the hiker onto the helicopter at 11:30 a.m. and transported him to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend. South Sister is a popular hiking spot but can be dangerous. July 13, 2021, saw three separate search and rescue missions — with two AirLink helicopter dispatches — within 24 hours.

Illegal Pot Farm Linked to International Network Police say a two-year criminal investigation revealed a complex criminal network By Jack Harvel Courtesy of Central Oregon Drug Enforcement

Police assemble outside a property allegedly used for illegal marijuana cultivation.


olice seized more than eight tons of processed marijuana, 17,000 plants, four guns, and a large cache of money in a raid on six unlicensed marijuana farms around Madras and Culver that law enforcement claims are connected to a Chinese criminal network. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of the Central Oregon Drug Team and the Deschutes County Illicit Marijuana Enforcement Team, says it conducted surveillance on 23 people across 20 properties. Profits from the marijuana businesses were allegedly laundered through Chinese restaurants around the Pacific Northwest, which diverted the money back to China disguised as business transactions. Most of the 14 Chinese laborers the detectives interviewed were trafficked into the United States, and later the cartel recruited restaurant laborers to work at the farms. The workers lived on the farm and were reportedly moved from grow site to grow site. Police arrested five leaders and charged them with unlawful manufacture, delivery and possession of

marijuana. Robert Dale, who allegedly owns many of the properties targeted in the raid, was also charged with unlawful possession of a weapon. Large illegal marijuana farms are a growing issue for rural Central Oregon. In September 2021, police raided a 30-acre farm in Alfalfa staffed with debtslaves allegedly linked to a Jalisco-based criminal organization. Southern Oregon is part of the emerald triangle, a region renowned for marijuana cultivation. But, as the state gets more aggressive combating illegal farms in southern Oregon, large farms are appearing in other parts of the state. “They’ve applied so much pressure down there, people are now starting to move out,” Dustin Miller, a detective for the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, told the Source in January. “That doesn’t necessarily move to Deschutes County, although Deschutes County has good farmland out east. But we’re also seeing them go out towards Lakeview and out towards eastern Oregon.”

Noticias en Español Comienza Código de Campamento Por Jack Harvel Translated by / Traducido por Jéssica Sánchez-Millar haciendo, revisar sus reglamentos, afinar las cosas, limpiar, corregir las cosas para cumplir con las nuevas reglas al implantar estos nuevos modelos,” dijo el fiscal adjunto de la ciudad de Bend, Ian Leitheiser. “Estamos en esa etapa en la que seguimos teniendo muchas preguntas en relación a lo que va a funcionar, que será o no legalmente válido, en qué momento, lugar y forma se determinarán para ser objetivamente razonables, pero todavía no estamos en ese punto en el que tenemos todas esas respuestas.” Tiempo, lugar y forma son las áreas en las que se pueden establecer las restricciones. Una restricción de tiempo limitaría el momento en que una persona podría acampar en propiedad pública, como lo es el prohibir acampar durante el día. Los reglamentos sobre el lugar pueden limitar el campamento en ciertas calles o pueden indicar en términos generales en donde no pueden estar, es decir, cerca de albergues, escuelas o áreas ecológicamente frágiles. Las restricciones de comportamiento podrían limitar el número de campantes en el área, limitar el espacio que puede ocupar un campamento o prohibir que se prendan fogatas en los campamentos.

en varios aspectos una gestión de casos y requiere de mucho entrenamiento y educación continua,” dijo el concejal de la ciudad de Bend Mo Mitchell. Los campamentos no autorizados continúan siendo un serio problema en Bend. Cuando la ciudad modificó los códigos de campamento el mes pasado, atrajo a más de 100 personas a la junta del Concejo Municipal. Los concejales dijeron que se están encargando urgentemente de este problema, pero algunos agregaron que es probable que las cosas empeoren antes de que mejoren. El Servicio Forestal de los Estados Unidos quitó los campamentos de la calle China Hat, lo cual probablemente llevará a más gente a acampar en la ciudad, sumando a las 785 personas reportadas sin hogar en Bend durante el conteo del 2022 de Point in Time. “Estoy muy decepcionado de nuestros colegas del gobierno de la región ya que no nos han compartido las acciones que están tomando en relación a las personas sin hogar, y estoy hablando específicamente del Servicio Forestal, sin tener en cuanta una solución,” dijo el Concejal de la Ciudad de Bend Anthony Boardman. “Estoy de acuerdo con usted, la situación será menos justa para las personas sin hogar y será menos justa para la comunidad alojada al quitar a las personas de la calle China Hat sin contar con un plan para adónde ir.”



a Ciudad de Bend está pensando crear códigos para reglamentar los campamentos al aire libre en lugares de paso público y en terrenos de la ciudad. El 15 de junio, el consejo municipal de Bend le pidió al presidente municipal que nombrara un grupo de trabajo compuesto por prestadores de servicios, interesados y personas que han estado sin hogar para llevar a cabo un acercamiento comunitario y recabar opiniones de parte de los miembros de la comunidad. El código creado para regir los campamentos debe cumplir con Martin v. Boise, una decisión del Tribunal de Apelaciones del Noveno Circuito que prohibió a las ciudades reforzar reglamentos contra los campamentos si no hay un lugar en donde pueda quedarse una persona sin hogar. La asamblea legislativa de Oregon codificó esa decisión como ley estatal con el Proyecto de Ley 3115 de la Cámara de Representantes, el cual entrará en efecto en julio del 2023, pero sigue siendo muy vaga la decisión que no indica cuáles serán las restricciones. “Creo que la perspectiva de la asamblea legislativa fue, “Vamos a crear esta nueva ley, vamos a darle tiempo a las ciudades de Oregon para que ver qué están

La ciudad ya tiene una política para quitar campamentos de personas sin hogar en los derechos de paso, pero solo si cumple con ciertos requisitos en relación a el peligro de incendios, acumulación de basura, llamadas al servicio policial y calles que considera inseguras el presidente municipal. Desde que se aprobó la política en junio de 2021, se ha utilizado para quitar campamentos de la avenida Emerson y de la calle dos. Martin v. Boise restringe a la ciudad la capacidad de quitar campamentos, pero no requiere un exceso de camas de refugio como a menudo se tiene entendido. “La única manera de poner en práctica esa regla es ver las necesidades en forma individual; ¿tiene esta persona un lugar alternativo en donde pueda dormir, y si no lo tiene, la corte indica que no se le puede castigar por dormir en lugares públicos, lo cual es algo inevitable cuando un ser humano no tiene algún otro lugar en donde quedarse,” dijo la abogada asociada de la ciudad Elizabeth Oshel. Una evaluación sobre las opciones que alguien tiene para entrar a un albergue o para encontrar una vivienda alternativa es muy trabajosa. El equipo móvil de evaluación de crisis del Condado de Deschutes sería el punto de contacto para llevar a cabo cualquier evaluación individual. “Si vamos a evaluar a las personas y las circunstancias vividas, en donde duermen y que hay disponible, es básicamente



Stuck Outside with a Mobile (with the Millennial Blues Again)

For many, Bob Dylan’s music evokes an element of folk nostalgia. At his show in Bend, the throwback vibes extend to the no-phones policy, too By Nicole Vulcan


major concert in the modern age contains all the bells and whistles: booming sound, an incredible light display, nostalgic fans… and a sea of blueish screens, all positioned on the artist to amateurly document the whole scene and blast it out on social media. But one folk legend is among a growing number of artists to hold back the tide and announce a “phone free” experience at his shows. When Bob Dylan plays at the Hayden Homes Amphitheater on June 27, he’ll be the first artist at that venue to require a phone-free environment. Instead of standing on tiptoe to rise above the blue-phone sea, attendees will see those phones tucked away in cases designed to help people hearken back to the old days, when one had to find a phone booth (and maybe wait in line) to call the babysitter. Once, before the word “selfie” was a thing, this was just the way it was. Millennials and Gen Zers, your friends of older generations assure you that you’ll get through this.

How it works

The entry process at Hayden Homes Amphitheater already comes with a few hoops: Scan your ticket (yes, from your mobile phone), have your (clear-plastic-only) bag searched, get wanded with a metal detector.

For this show, there’s the additional step of grabbing a storage pouch from Yondr, the company contracted by Dylan’s team to deliver phone storage. Having a sea of phones at a live show “bleeds the energy out of a room,” Yondr’s founder Graham Dugoni told CNN Business in 2020. At a show or other event serviced by Yondr, attendees pop a phone in the pouch and close it, which locks the pouch until it’s waved over an unlocking device at the exit. Attendees who need to take care of phone business during the show will have a designated area

said Beau Eastes, marketing director of the Old Mill District and Hayden Homes Amphitheater. Still, the process is fairly basic, and doesn’t involve some complicated form of coat-check. “When you leave the venue, you go and unlock it and you’ll give that pouch back,” Eastes told the Source. “Your phone stays on—you have your phone in your possession the entire time.” But while it’s new for Bend, it’s been a growing trend over the past decade—especially for big-name artists in the comedy and music scenes.

“This is something that will be new to us, but The Lumineers have done this. A lot of comedy acts—Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock have done this before. Donald Glover performing as Childish Gambino has done it at his shows.” —BEAU EASTES to unlock it and do their thing before heading back to the show. This being the first time the amphitheater has had this type of policy in place at the request of an artist, its team is still working out the details of where the phone area will be located and how big the area will be,

“This is something that will be new to us, but The Lumineers have done this. A lot of comedy acts—Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock have done this before. Donald Glover performing as Childish Gambino has done it at his shows,” Eastes said. Weddings are another place where a phone-free experience is a trend in 2022. It

An example of a phone-storing sleeve from Yondr, the company that will bring its storage devices to Bend for the Bob Dylan show.

seems a growing number of people are waking up to the realization that being present in the moment might require checking out from that thing that dings, whistles and is otherwise designed to pull one’s attention away from anything but its glowing screen. Yondr, the phone-pouch provider, sees it as offering a “haven.” Yondr’s founder started the business in 2014, when he would make the pouches himself and bring them to shows and even schools. The unique idea eventually caught the attention of entertainers including Chappelle, who became one of its investors, according to CNN Business. “In our hyperconnected world, we provide a haven to engage with what you’re doing and who you’re doing it with. In physical space and real time,” reads a description on Yondr’s website.

“Like seeing a show in the ‘90s”

From the concert-goer perspective, it may take some getting used to. Ashley, a music lover in Bend who asked to remain anonymous, said she’d attended a no-phones Jack White show in Portland in 2018 and appreciated the ability to be more present with the music. Her only complaint, she said, was the inability to link to SoundHound during the show to identify some of the songs in the pre-show entertainment that she wanted to recall later on. In an announcement ahead of his 2018 tour, White told reporters that he wanted fans to enjoy a “100% human experience.” While representatives for Bob Dylan did not respond to our request for comment, Dylan himself made a stand about people’s phones during a show in

Vienna, Austria, in 2019, saying “Take pictures or don’t take pictures. We can either play or we can pose. OK?,” as reported in Stereogum. Dylan then reportedly left the concert. The bigger the artist, the higher likelihood that they’ll have such a policy in place. If you’re Beyoncé or Prince, for example, you hardly need more publicity by way of people sharing your show on social media. Beyoncé has reportedly lightheardtly admonished fans for “taping” during her shows instead of watching the action. The late great Prince began enforcing a no-phones policy as far back as 2013. Alicia Keys, who has used Yondr pouches at her shows, said you’d have to be famous yourself— someone like Queen Latifah—to be able to buck the rules, according to a story in The Washington Post. And Bruno Mars, the funky R&B star, encouraged fans to dance and enjoy the show “like they did in the old days.” The 1990s, apparently, are those “old days.” “One of our production guys has been a part of a show elsewhere, and he said it was like seeing a show in the ‘90s,” Eastes from Hayden Homes said. “I think it’s gonna be pretty cool. I hope that people have no reservations about it. I hope they give it a chance.” That may be a less-than-appealing prospect for anyone who wasn’t even alive in the ‘90s, but when it comes to the artist on stage June 27, who’s been kicking out some of music’s most iconic tunes since the ‘60s, it’s his show, and he’s earned the cred to make such a policy.

You got this.

According to information from Statista, there were some 280.54 million smartphone users in the United States in 2020—making the U.S. the 4th-highest country for smartphone “population penetration,” covering 79.10% of people. (The U.S. falls behind the United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates and Mexico in this regard.) Thus, we know the policy is going to blow some people’s minds. What will you do without that appendage that dings, whistles, vibrates or otherwise gets you to look at its face every few minutes? I don’t know—I guess listen to music.

4Peaks is excited to bring a stacked night of music to Silver Moon. And yes—they miss the flagship festival just as much as you


By Isaac Biehl

Jenise Jensen

Here’s what a set from Boombox typically looks like. Don’t miss the chance to experience these vibes in person.


sually around this weekend many of you would be gearing up for another round of the always amazing 4Peaks Music Festival. However, as most of you know, this year the festival won’t be taking place. Fortunately, those bummed out by this shouldn’t worry, as the flagship festival is planned to be back on in 2023. And as always, 4Peaks Presents has stayed busy by finding other ways to bring music to Central Oregon in 2022. This Saturday, music lovers can head to Silver Moon Brewing to enjoy live tunes from Boombox, The Hip Abduction, The Ben Larsen Band, Oregon Fryer and DJ iLko for a one-night music extravaganza dubbed SOULstice. “Because we’re not having the festival, I still wanted to do something. It’s not in place of the festival and there’s no camping and none of the extra festival events, but I wanted to bring some bands that have wanted to play the festival and have a 4Peaks night at Silver Moon. It was a really cool opportunity to bring these bands to Bend,” says 4Peaks owner Stacy Koff. In classic 4Peaks fashion, the lineup is killer and highlights a great mix of styles— which is something Koff takes a lot of pride in. “When 4Peaks curates a lineup, whether two or 22 bands, it’s eclectic but it usually flows together. Boombox is a band I’ve wanted to play a late night set at the festival for a while. They’re just really high-energy and fun. The Hip Abduction is such a cool Cali-reggae band that crosses over into the jam scene as well. For them to be here during a sunny Saturday at SOULstice, they’re going to be awesome,” she says. Portland’s Ben Larsen has previously played the 4Peaks festival with the Crow & The Canyon, but not with his latest band. They’ll bring a funkier side of folk-rock to SOULstice, and Bend’s own Oregon Fryer, who is a local Americana favorite, always knows how to get the crowd moving. Then keeping the party going is another Bend local, DJ iLko, who brings positive energy to every set he takes on. This would have been year 15 of the 4Peaks Festival, and while Koff knows events like SOULstice can’t totally replace it, she’s still bringing plenty of music to town

with their Campfire Unplugged series held every Thursday night at the Campfire Hotel, along with a variety of other one-off shows. Koff remains driven and excited about bringing talented musicians to Central Oregon—even if she misses the craziness of putting together such a huge festival. “It’s a little bittersweet. People ask me if it’s a relief, but it’s not. It’s mixed. To have a multi-day camping festival here is so pertinent for the community, and it’s so fun. To bring this kind of quality music to the area—to have people like Billy Strings and The Wood Brothers come play here. I’m a little saddened, but excited to bring other bands to the area,” reflects Koff. “It’s almost like my body in June takes on a life of its own. My brain and physical self don’t know what to do [without the festival]. It’s weird not to be completely out of my skull with 5,000 moving parts. I love it and I thrive on it. People always tell me it’s the start of their summer.” Without the festival, Koff expresses the hope for SOULstice to still be a big night. For fans of the festival and the music 4Peaks brings to the community, buying tickets to SOULstice or any of their one-off shows can go a long way toward making sure the festival is able to do everything it wants to in 2023 after a return from its hiatus. What gets brought in only helps further the types of musicians they can bring to the High Desert. “Everybody loves to come to Bend. And we take pride in taking care of the artist,” adds Koff.

Here Comes SOULstice







































Legendary artist releases first album of original material in a decade By Alan Sculley


Michael Wilson


yle Lovett has just released “12th of June,” his first album of original material in 10 years. In yet another example of the pandemic getting in the way of best laid plans, Lovett had things all lined up for a much earlier arrival of his latest batch of music. “We recorded these tracks in November of 2019 with the idea of finishing them in March of 2020,” Lovett said in an early June phone interview. “I did an acoustic group tour that started in January and ended up on the 7th of March that year. I was going to spend the rest of the month working on the record and finishing it for a 2020 release. And of course, that did not happen.” While Lovett did get to join his Large Band in the studio and record the basic tracks for “12th of June,” the pandemic had a huge effect on mixing and other work required from that point forward to finish the album. “Chuck Ainlay, my producer in Nashville, would go through tracks and mix, and go through as we made edits and changes. He would e-mail me everything he was doing and then I would listen on my own,” Lovett said. “It was just not the same. The back and forth is just not as much fun, really, because a decision that would take five minutes to make in the studio would end up being two or three days by e-mail. So it slowed everything down immensely. It’s just not as much fun listening and analyzing something all by yourself as it is working with people. So I missed the interaction. I missed the humanity in making the record, and it felt more, in the context of being isolated from the world anyway, it added to that feeling of isolation rather than helped to diminish it.” In the end, Lovett got to work in person with Ainlay in putting the finishing touches on “12th of June,” but that didn’t happen until early this year. So better late than never, fans of Lovett finally have new music to enjoy. And while Lovett, one of music’s finest and most literate songwriters, has done his share of excellent albums that lean toward country and feature a good bit of acoustic instrumentation (think his second album, 1987’s “Pontiac,” 1992’s “Joshua Judges Ruth” or 2012’s “Release Me”), “12th of June” is his third studio album billed with his Large Band. With this ensemble of talented musicians (it will be a 14-member unit for this summer’s tour), Lovett is able to greatly expand his musical reach. That’s obvious right from the start of “12th of June,” which opens with a version of jazz great Horace Silver’s “Cookin’ at

Bolstered by a marriage, the birth of twins and a new album, Lyle Lovett is more than ready to hit the road with his Large Band.

the Continental,” a lively instrumental that lets the Large Band showcase its considerable chops. Three duets with Lovett’s longtime vocal counterpart, Francine Reed, further cement the jazz credentials of all involved as they tackle two songs associated with Nat “King” Cole, the peppy “Straighten Up & Fly Right,” the bluesy ballad “Gee Baby, Ain’t I Good to You,” as well as the David Frishberg-penned standard, “Peel Me A Grape.” Lovett’s more country-leaning sound emerges on the ballads “Her Loving Man,” “The Mocking Ones” and the title track, while “Pig Meat Man” puts a bit of soul and blues into the mix, and “Are We Dancing” adds a string-laden ballad that is rooted in the pre-rock and roll era. The long gap between “12th of June” and Lovett’s previous album, 2012’s “Release Me,” was largely the product of being between record deals and needing time to figure out how he wanted to release his next collection of songs, coupled with a major development in

Lovett’s personal life – his marriage to longtime girlfriend April Kimble in 2017, followed by the birth of the couple’s twins. Along with touring commitments – Lovett tends to play around 100 concerts during normal years – these factors absorbed a lot of time over the past decade. Marriage and fatherhood figure prominently into the lyrics of the original songs on “12th of June.” “Her Loving Man” is a sweet tribute to Kimble and her intelligence, wisdom and warmth. The title song is a touching tune that imagines a father carrying his love for his wife and children into the next life. Lovett applies his trademark wry humor to “Pants is Overrated,” which was inspired one day when his children were resisting the idea of getting dressed, and “Pig Meat Man,” an ode to pork. Lovett is looking forward to sharing the songs and messages of his new songs on tour with his Large Band this summer.

“We’ll play material from across my catalog, but we will definitely feature material from this (new) album,” he said. “It’s always fun to have a new record out, and it’s always fun to have a reason to play those newly recorded songs. We did six shows in four days in New York in May, the week after the album was released, and we had a great time playing together for the first time as the Large Band since August of 2019. So we had a great time all being together, and it just made me really look forward to this tour.”

Katy Ipock will host comedy night at Silver Moon Fri., June 24.

. .

The Capitol Local Comedy producer Tease Bang Boom! will turn the basement bar into a man-cave with its show aptly titled “The Boys Club: An All Male Comedy Showcase” on Fri., June 24. Local comic Zac, a frequent presence in the local comedy scene, will host. Comedians Drake Lock, Steve Harber, Leroy Firwood and Carl Click will provide the big dude energy that some may be craving on a Friday night. Silver Moon Brewing Ipockolyptic Productions will host its own comedy night at Silver Moon, just down the street from the Capitol, also on June 24. Central Oregon Comedy powerhouse Katy Ipock will host, highlighting a slew of Central Oregon comedians: Eli Alaka, Grace Miller, Billy Brant, Doug Layman, Ocean Robinson, and special guest Tracy Reider! Expect both Friday shows to fill up fast.


Craft Kitchen and Brewery Craft is known to bring the Chuckles on a weekly basis. This week it will host local Portland comedian Jordan Cerminara who is a multi-platform comedy sensation. Creator of numerous podcasts, writer of comic strips, producer of videos, and dabbler in VR and media of the future, there is no place on the Interwebs where you won’t find Cerminara. Stepping out of his creation chamber, Central Oregonians can catch him live on Sat., June 25 for a stacked night of laughter.


Hayden Homes Amphitheater Although the show is already sold out, there are some resale tickets out there for parody legend Weird Al Yankovic. Since releasing his debut album, “’Weird Al’ Yankovic,” in 1982, the song-parody expert has blown up on the world stage. His outrageous music videos and outlandish live shows have made Yankovich one of the most recognized acts today, and he will be sure to continue his legacy Sat., June 25.



Civic Education is Making a Comeback By Chris Williams

Submitted by Amy Sabbadini


s of Jan., 1 2022, Oregon was one of 11 states that did not require high school students to take a civics course to graduate. This will slowly change with the passing of Senate Bill 513, which goes into effect in 2025 and will require students to take at least one half credit of civics education to receive a high school diploma. The Bill passed with bipartisan support and aims to alleviate a loss of civic education and participation that was put on the back burner during the ‘90s to 2010s with the focus turning toward STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education and testing to receive federal funds. The result of this focus was a steady decline nationwide of knowledge regarding government functions and responsibility, although polls taken in 2020 showed a sharp increase in the population’s understanding of constitutional protections and components that make up U.S. democracy. According to a study by Annenburg Public Policy Center in 2020, 51% of Americans could name the three branches of U.S. government, up from 39% just a year prior. These numbers could be explained by the widespread protests that took place across the U.S. during 2020, or a hotly contested election, with the aftermath of the election showing that there is still a lack of understanding and trust in our democracy. Some believe beginning this education at an early age is the best way to find a solution. “We want [civics] to be part of everything you do. Even if you’re discussing something about science there’s a civics aspect of science, a civics aspect of language studies. So we’d really like to see civics be integrated beyond just social studies classes,” says Amy Sabbadini, regional program director of Classroom Law Project. Classroom Law Project is an Oregon-based nonprofit that has worked extensively to promote participation and civic education in the Portland area and is looking to expand east of the Cascades as SB 513 rolls into effect. “Our programs [provide] a template for how a teacher can take their class through the process of identifying a problem, coming to a policy solution through consensus building, and then involving stakeholders in the community and presenting their decision as a classroom,” says Sabbadini. Civics education in schools can be represented by debate teams and government education classes, but

Students participate in a mock congressional hearing with judges comprised of Oregon lawmakers and professors.

an importance on students recognizing their voices in a system appears to be the centerpiece of the educational goals. One strategy is to get students to realize their position in the school community. “[We could] teach the town hall method of teaching simulation for students to role play so they can practice a point of view that maybe isn’t their own. Develop a little empathy for other points of view or at least understand what they are, even if they fully disagree and work out the difficulty of solving problems…[the topic] could be something like school schedules or parking,” Sabbadini explains. From here students can have a space to voice

opinions and role play through different viewpoints. Discussions can move toward issues regarding local concerns or even expand to national and global problems. The goal of this discourse is to open disagreements in a constructive way that doesn’t lead to hostility or withdrawing from participation. She says, “It’s not a given that you get to keep democracy just because you say it’s democracy. It requires people to actively vote and go beyond voting.” Students participate in a mock congressional hearing with judges comprised of Oregon lawmakers and professors.

Places on Redmond’s CHOW New th 7 Street Corridor

From a roastery to a tap house, there’s new food and drink to try just off downtown


Submitted photo.


ow incredible is it that we live in an area that is quickly becoming populated with fun food, beverage, and venue options in a variety of neighborhoods throughout Central Oregon? Take for example, the 7th street corridor in Redmond. That area, a block off the main street through downtown, just keeps expanding its culinary repertoire. This article highlights a few of the newest additions to the neighborhood. We begin at the Junction, dubbed a roastery and social club, which is located in the renovated historic Patrick building (home to Redmond’s original hospital) at 708 SW Deschutes Avenue at 7th and Deschutes. Owner/Operators Mitch Thisius and Bo Olson were inspired by the pandemic to provide a place where folks could come back together and socialize over a sip and a bite. The renovated space is open, spacious, and well-appointed, big enough to host a special event or party and cozy enough for a coffee date. Coffees and espressos are on the menu, as are homemade bakery goods, daily soups, sandwiches and salads. The focus is on quality with local ingredient sourcing a priority. This writer enjoyed an afternoon treat of affogato with a scoop of Eberhard’s (local Redmond dairy) vanilla ice cream, and it was perfection in a cup. The Junction is open every day from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you keep heading north on 7th Street, you’ll end up at the recently opened Otto’s Landing at 652 NW 7th. Fully packed on a recent Saturday afternoon, Otto’s is a 2-level taphouse and sports bar with televisions everywhere and a play room for the wee ones right off the main lower level dining room. People of all ages were enjoying beverages as well as food from the three carts/trucks out back. The hapa cart at Otto’s serves up Hawaiian plates of pulled pork and teriyaki chicken with sides such as macaroni salad and soft dinner rolls. There is also currently a Mexican truck with tacos and a Greek truck with gyros at Otto’s Landing. Neither of those food trucks had a sign or a name painted on their vehicles, but customers were ordering up giant platefuls of tacos and gyros before heading inside for their beers, ciders, and cocktails. Otto’s already has the vibe of a well-established locals’ hangout. With plenty of space, lots of seating options, every sport imaginable on dozens of televisions, and the play area for the little kids, this is a spot that will thrive despite being at the far north end of the 7th Street neighborhood. Backtracking a bit now, to the south end of 7th street, there’s the new food pod adjacent to the High Desert Music Hall. The 1/8th Street Patio Taphouse & Food Pod’s official address is 818 SW Forest Avenue & Glacier, but seeing how you can see the spot from 7th Street, it’s definitely in the 7th street corridor/neighborhood. This spot is just getting going, and it’s sure to be the perfect complement to the Music Hall and its Backline Lounge. The food pod trucks are opening early in the day and the current offerings include Best Moments Bakery, featuring lattes and pastries “just like mom used to bake.” El Poblanito is open every day of the week from

The hapa food truck at Otto’s Landing in Redmond.

11 a.m. to 9 p.m. with tacos, fajitas, quesadillas, and ceviche. You can call ahead for orders at 541-279-3145. The family-owned Greek truck, The Mighty Greek, is also in the food pod. They’re open Wednesday through Saturday starting at 11 a.m., and the authentic menu includes traditional gyros, Greek salad, pita with homemade tzatziki sauce, and loukoumades, the Greek version of fried dough glazed in honey and sprinkled with cinnamon. With the first week of summer officially underway and long, sunny days and pleasant evenings on the horizon, there should be ample time to explore Central Oregon trails, breweries, eateries, and neighborhoods. Plenty of time awaits to enjoy bites and sips, conversation, and all sorts of entertainment wherever you happen to land on any given day. The blocks off Redmond’s main drag are definitely worth your time.

Potato Salad Perfection

A show-stealing recipe for summer meals By Ari LeVaux 41



Jesse Pepper's Potato Salad

Serve it alongside rich and delicious main dishes. And if you have no main dish, add more meat. Makes a whole picnic load.

• 12 large russet potatoes • 12 eggs • 1 large white onion, minced • 1 large red onion, minced • 3 large dill pickles • 2 cups celery, diced • 3 cups sour cream (use normal not cultured sour cream, which is too thick) • 3 cups mayo (They used Best Foods, aka Hellmann's, with which one can’t go wrong) • ½ cup mustard • ¼ cup of minced fresh dill (not to be a troublemaker here, but I use a LOT more) • 2 cups chopped pork belly, bacon, burned ends, or other succulent meat • 2 tablespoons salt • 2 tablespoons black pepper

Mel Redding

This potato salad is pure perfection.

Peel the potatoes, cut them small – x ideally – and put them in a large pot. Add water to cover the potatoes and cook on high heat until they are tender but not mushy. There is nothing mushy about this recipe. Strain and set aside. In a small pot, boil six cups of water and a half cup of vinegar. Add the eggs, return to a boil and boil for ten minutes, then move the pot to the sink with the cold water on. Pour out the hot water and flush with cold water. Then add ice and let the eggs cool. Start chopping all the other vegetables into a medium dice, by which point your eggs will be ready to be peeled and cut into 8 pieces each. Store these in the fridge until the end. Wash off your eggy knife and cutting board. Add the mayo, sour cream and pickles to a food processor or blender, and whizz for about 90 seconds – until the pickles are atomized. Add the onion, celery, mustard, dill, meat, salt and pepper to a large mixing bowl and thoroughly combine. Add the pickle mayo and mix again. Add the potatoes, and gently mix, lifting from the bottom and carefully folding it over, so nothing gets mushed.







otato salad isn’t supposed to be a main event. Its humble job is to support other dishes as a kind of chunky mayonnaise, a creamy and tangy mortar between the important dishes. But the other day while I was enjoying some BBQ, the potato salad next to my epic piece of brisket almost stole the show. At first those creamy bites were a refuge – light as the breeze compared to the rich and heavy glory of the succulent meat that I was there for. The potato salad was like another flavor of BBQ sauce, as the dill, onion and pickles gave tangy and aromatic balance to the brisket. When I finally ran out of potato salad, I decided to stop eating and bring home the meat. This was at Jesse Pepper’s Smoke Shack, a BBQ restaurant in White Sulphur Springs, a small town in the middle of Montana. The potato salad, according to owner Mel Redding, is a collaboration among three generations of her family, combining elements of her mom’s potato salad with some tricks from her son’s recipe, along with her own. Many families have a special potato salad recipe, but when each family member has their own specific potato salad recipe, we know we’re dealing with a serious crew of baller chefs. But tragically, this team is like the 1992/93 Chicago Bulls, which remained dominant even after losing Michael Jordan. Jesse Pepper’s Smoke Shack exists, Mel explained, because of her son, Chef Jesse Pepper, who died in a car crash nearly two years ago. “The last time I saw him he came to visit me,” Mel told me. “He said it’s time that we started a family restaurant. I was going through a divorce. The boys were sick of working for other people. We all kind of needed a change. He made me promise that we would do it.” After Jesse died, he left a larger-than-life hole. The family left Vermont and bought an old restaurant in White Sulphur Springs, Montana, and set to work bringing his idea to life. In the process, the restaurant has turned this tiny town near the continental divide into a culinary destination. Jesse was an exuberant man with a big laugh, and he is still very much present in the kitchen, where his urn and knives have a special shelf. Every afternoon his brothers play dubstep music in his honor. As the one member of the family to graduate culinary school, the knowledge Jesse gathered is all over the menu. And although the story of the restaurant isn’t posted, the locals are learning why Jesse Pepper’s is here. “I make sure to tell his story to at least two customers every day,” Mel told me. White Sulphur Springs sits on a high plateau on the divide between the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers. In this last refuge of winter, still snowing as of last week, residents have embraced this hive of gastronomic innovation. The story of Jesse Pepper’s is still beginning, and Mel and Travis generously shared the recipe for their potato salad with us, so we could write another chapter. Part of what makes this potato salad so satisfying is its protein content. It’s got large pieces of hard boiled eggs, and crumbled bacon. On some days at the restaurant they make it with leftover BBQ, such as brisket burnt ends. It’s also wonderful with browned burger meat. Whatever meat you use will get lathered in the creamy sauce to the point where you can lose track of its identity, but you always know it’s there. Unless you don’t want meat, of course. The dish can be as vegetarian or vegan as you want it to be. The recipe calls for blending pickles with mayo and sour cream, but the first time I made it I forgot to buy pickles. Instead, I used some homemade pickled cherry bomb peppers and a jar of relish. It wasn’t the same, but when you make small tweaks to an amazing recipe you sometimes achieve dazzling results. I enjoyed the heat of the pickled peppers, and the coupling of “relish” and “peppers” in the same sentence seemed appropriate.

THE BAD GUYS: Sam Rockwell as an anti-hero wolf who, along with his team of thieves, starts pretending to be a good guy in order to eventually get away with bad guy stuff. With a voice cast featuring Marc Maron, Zazie Beetz, Craig Robinson, Richard Ayoade, Awkwafina and more, this is the most irrationally excited I’ve been for an animated film in a long time.

THE BLACK PHONE: If you want me at your horror movie opening night, here is a good recipe to have: Ethan Hawke as a creepy-ass serial killer in a horror film based on a short story by Joe Hill and directed by Scott Derrickson, the demented mind behind the modern horror classic “Sinister.” This was initially supposed to come out last year, so I’m really hoping it lives up to the hype I’ve had for it for the last six months.

Martial arts, sci-fi and mind-f*ck combine for this jaw-dropping showcase of the brilliant Michelle Yeoh and the unsung comedic chops of Jamie Lee Curtis.

Ultimately, dinosaurs are cool, so this should be fun. Regal Old Mill, Odem Theater Pub LIGHTYEAR: Chris Evans is Buzz Lightyear in this high-concept animated sci-fi adventure from Pixar and Disney. The concept is cool: The toy Buzz Lightyear from the “Toy Story” movies is the licensed action figure made from the success of a blockbuster summer movie. “Lightyear” is the in-universe movie that the toy is made from. Now my head hurts. Still, really excited for Pixar to dive back into space. See full review on page 43.

Infinity, Not Quite Beyond SCREEN To "Lightyear" tells a story of space instead of toys By Jared Rasic Courtesy of Imdb


“Lightyear,” Pixar’s newest animated adventure, has to have one of the strangest and most meta ideas for a children’s movie of all time. If you’ve seen a trailer, you know that the Buzz Lightyear from this new film is not the toy from the “Toy Story” films voiced by Tim Allen. Instead, Buzz is an actual human Space Ranger this time, voiced by “Captain America” Chris Evans and “Lightyear” as a film is a fairly straight-forward science fiction adventure. This is because in 1995 (when “Toy Story” was set), the little boy, Andy, got the Buzz Lightyear toy from his favorite movie, which was “Lightyear.” I very much enjoyed “Lightyear” as a quirky space adventure even though it doesn’t have remotely the same amount of heart that the “Toy Story” films possess. Although, and I guess this might be a hot take, I’m not a huge fan of Tim Allen and his dated and tired schtick about the narrowest of narrow views on masculinity, so I look at Chris Evans as a fairly massive upgrade. If you’re here just to see if I thought this was a good movie, then read no further. “Lightyear” is fun and exciting, and the kids will love it, even though it doesn’t carry the same emotional weight as any of the “Toy Story” films. Let’s say it’s nowhere near as good as “Inside Out,” but (I’m so sorry) it’s lightyears better than the car franchise. My biggest complaint is that it would have been nice if the movie actually felt a little more like a blockbuster sci-fi flick from 1995. But “Lightyear” can’t exist just as a Pixar kids’ movie because whether you notice or even care, we are in the middle of a culture war. It’s a fairly painless war that mostly exists on Twitter and in the mouths of talking heads on your infotainment program of choice, but the ramifications of the war could end up being horrifying depending on whether you’re liberal, conservative or somewhere in between. See, “Lightyear” didn’t make a staggering amount of money this weekend. It “only” made 50 million. So, conservative outlets look at this as a victory like it’s


Just the lovely story of a space ranger and his robotic cat. I love Pixar.

America (in the form of a bald eagle wearing an Uncle Sam hat and a Mr. Peanut monocle) storming the multiplex and pulling its dollars out of the hand of “woke” Hollywood. First of all, Hollywood isn’t that woke. If it were, the queer relationship depicted in “Lightyear” that has the parents of the lonely kids at school clutching their pearls couldn’t be so easily removed without changing the story (which is what’s happening in foreign markets). Sure, the representation is nice, but they’re still baby steps. Also, woke isn’t the pejorative conservatives think it is. I know they’re really into rebranding words like “Patriot” or “Cancelled” lately, but words have meanings, and they aren’t what you randomly decide they are. The slightly disappointing box office results of “Lightyear” aren’t because stern-faced families would rather see the “anti-woke” new “Top Gun” (which, hilariously, it’s not), but because “Lightyear” has a weird, hyper-meta concept, and it’s headed to theaters

after the last three Pixar movies went straight to Disney+. When a parent knows they’re going to get a massive children’s movie sent to their TV in a few weeks at a fraction of what it costs to go to the movie theater, there’s not much reason to deal with the multiplex. These conservative outlets can cheer the very mild financial disappointment of “Lightyear” because they don’t like the spooooooky gay agenda (of equality and just being, you know, treated like humans). But I think it’s beautiful that we have a massive Disney movie in theaters during Pride month that celebrates LGBTQIA lives. Honestly, I wish “Lightyear” were a lot gayer so we could get this culture war pushed into the next level. I know which side I’m on. Lightyear

Life Before SCREEN Their A mediocre white man’s look at Black cinema By Jared Rasic Courtesy of Annapurna



n celebration of this year’s Juneteenth, I thought it might be nice to talk about some seminal movies from black filmmakers that didn’t get heralded in the same way some inferior and exploitative ones get spoken about. Every few years Hollywood gushes over one or two black-led films like “Moonlight,” “12 Years a Slave” or “Black Panther” while ignoring dozens more that don’t capture the cultural zeitgeist in the same way. They also tend to gush over films with BIPOC leads or cast members, but ignore the black filmmakers, producers and writers who actually make the projects happen. It’s a habit this country has been in for centuries. America would cheer like mad for Jesse Owens when he ran and won four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics, but when he got home, he was barely allowed to make a living for himself, let alone get treated with anything approaching equality. We loved Owens when he was entertaining us and being a sports champion, but when he came home, civil rights were too much to ask for, let alone was he allowed enough agency to make a good living off of his accomplishments. This systemic form of oppression, while getting somewhat better, is still very much in place. We want our black entertainers entertaining, not leading or shaping the cultural discussion. Look at the sadly overrated “Green Book,” a film that tells the incredibly important story of pianist Don Shirley and his fearless tour of the Deep South in 1962. Only Hollywood would say “Hey, that’s a great idea, but let’s have one of the directors of “There’s Something About Mary” make it, and instead of telling the story from Shirley’s perspective, let’s focus on his racist Italian driver. So Shirley’s entire arc of the film is making his white driver less racist. I guarantee you, if a black filmmaker had made “Green Book,” it wouldn’t have been about life lessons for racists. It would have been from the perspective of Shirley as he created art for people who treated him as if he were less than human, instead of from the point of view of another white savior. So many of the movies telling black stories are instead telling white stories featuring black people or, to be frank, black stories that studios and producers think will be palatable for white audiences. Look at some of the big nominees like “Green Book” from the Oscars over the last few years: “The Blind Side,” “Crash,” “The Help,” “Driving Miss Daisy” and so many others. While “racism is bad” as a plot line is a nice thought and all, it’s still treating black lives as a device for white people to learn lessons


LaKeith Stanfield astounds in Boots Riley’s underseen masterpiece “Sorry to Bother You.”

from instead of, oh I don’t know, treating them as sentient humans with lives that exist outside of making a country’s collective guilt feel mildly less brutal. If you want a truly beautiful film about artists of color actually made by them, look at the 2018 surrealist comedy “Sorry To Bother You,” written, produced and directed by Boots Riley of the wildly underrated hip-hop group The Coup. “Sorry To Bother You” literally makes subtext into text by telling the story of a black telemarketer who only finds success at his job when he adopts a white accent during his calls. As he gets swept up in a wildly successful series of promotions and piles of money, he has to choose between his newfound lifestyle or helping create equity for those he left behind. There’s no white savior narrative because Riley is telling a story not designed to be palatable to the average filmgoer, let alone Hollywood, and the film is a thousand times more honest for it. When D.W. Griffith’s racist Klan propaganda “The Birth of a Nation,” was released in 1915, it was a full five years later that Oscar Micheaux’s silent film “Within Our Gates” came out swinging, focusing on Jim Crow, the migration of blacks to the North and the Midwest, and the birth of what was called “The New Negro.” So why is it that, more than a hundred years later, film historians consider “Birth of a Nation” to be

a groundbreaking film, but the oldest known film by a black director, “Within Our Gates” (which told the story of a black woman raising money in the North for a poor school in the South), is barely remembered beyond film nerds like me. White Hollywood wants black auteurs making films so they can pat themselves on the back for inclusivity and acceptance, but in order to enter the mainstream, those filmmakers have to check some very specific boxes in order to be screened in the multiplexes of America. One box is exploring the impact of racism on non-racist America and, the one that continues to be explored the most, the genre of Black Trauma. Don’t get me wrong, the genre is important as it serves to remind a country and world with a very short memory (and attention span) of the many horrors of the recent past. But there are more to these stories than we see anymore because they aren’t as lucrative as ones co-opting suffering for awards and money. In a recent pan of the series “Them” by NPR’s Aisha Harris, she wrote, “‘Them’ suffers from the same predicament that has arisen in the wake of Black people becoming hashtags in death— the public knows far more about their last moments on Earth than all the moments that made up their life before.” If film exists to create empathy,

then we can’t reframe marginalized voices into just their most sensationalized aspects. Ryan Coogler’s “Fruitvale Station” is an unforgettable look at the 2009 death of Oscar Grant, but we only got a look at the last day of his life instead of the years leading up to it. When we remember someone only for their death, we lose any sense of the history or the context of institutional racism. Movies like “Green Book” serve only two masters: corporate interest and white guilt. Don’t let them. Instead, give your time and mind to some recent important Black movies such as “The Harder They Fall,” “Passing,” “Judas and the Black Messiah,” and “If Beale Street Could Talk.” Also check out lesser-known classics like “Ashes and Embers,” “Hollywood Shuffle,” “The Learning Tree” and “Killer of Sheep.” We can do better as consumers, because when we watch movies only interested in Black trauma and how Black lives effect white ones, we’re actually losing authentic stories about Black lives…especially when we give homogenized lies like “Green Book” our money. And yes, I see the irony of being a white male writing a thousand words about Black voices. But I have a platform, and if I’m not amplifying voices more marginalized and important than mine, then I’m ultimately not doing anything with it. Happy Juneteenth. Now listen.

Backyard Badgers and Ground Squirrels are Fair Game, but They Shouldn’t Be

GO HERE By Chris Williams

Wiki Commons


By Jim Anderson Jim Anderson


ou’ve seen them. They’re big furry critters about the size of a bear cub that sort of roll over the surface of the earth as they rush from point “A” to point “B.” If you get too close to them — as you investigate what that blur of fur was that scuttled behind the sagebrush — you’ll hear a deep grumble, and if you’re quick, you’ll also see a lot of soil flying and that clump of fur vanish underground. You probably already guessed it, if you’ve had an encounter with the American Badger. They are very common throughout the High Desert, where, unfortunately they are shot on sight by most so-called “sportsmen” and far too many horse people. There is no wild animal in the State of Oregon that eats ground squirrels faster and more often than badgers. Wildlife biologists say they have a major impact on the biodiversity of the Sisters Country, which is an understatement. The agricultural industry in this neck of the woods, with its irrigated farms, has had a profound impact in increasing the populations of the various ground squirrels — Belding’s in particular — which has created a new business: shooting ground squirrels, or “sage rats,” as some people know them. At Hampton Station you may see an old bus that’s been converted to a shooting platform that takes customers out to the edge of the hay fields to shoot (as in kill) ground squirrels. This is causing a terrible calamity to the various raptors that also kill (and eat) the ground squirrels. The ground squirrels that have been killed with lead shot become carriers of lead that enters the life stream of eagles, hawks and owls of the region. The lead in the dead ground squirrels is ingested by the raptors, with hideous results. There is no worse sight in the wild than a bald eagle suffering from the results of ingested lead. Death eventually overtakes them as they crawl on their bellies, unable to eat, drink, or fly. In most cases, if the bird(s) do get to a vet’s lab, it will take as long as a year of medicating a bird to get the lead out of their bodies. To make matters worse, if the raptor feeding on lead-infested squirrels is nesting, the adult will bring the contaminated ground squirrel back and feed it to the nestling. The result: the baby bird dies before it can fledge. Then there’s the badger who also feeds on great numbers of ground squirrels. They are nocturnal most of the

time and dig out ground squirrels from their burrows at night, and throughout the winter. Yes, it’s that infernal digging that gets the poor old badger into trouble with equestrians. Again and again, one hears reports of horses that have fallen into a badger hole, broken a leg, and had to be euthanized. There is no easy answer to that problem, except for horse lovers to chase the badgers far enough out of the pasture enough that they don’t return. But ground squirrels and horse pastures go together like hand and glove. Using lethal means to rid the pasture of ground squirrels causes more problems than shooting the badger, so that’s out. Trapping ground squirrels is labor intensive, but by far the best solution, especially if one hires a high school student to do it; he or she can build up a wonderful college fund.

And then there’s the off-hand shooting (as in killing) of badgers for the fun of it. Unfortunately, the badger isn’t protected by any state or federal regulations. The first settlers who didn’t like badgers — or the look of them — could just kill them and that was that; it’s the same today, except you must have a hunting license and permission to be on the land. That’s got to change because of the badger’s vital role as a member of juniper, sage and grassland ecosystems. And besides that, they are living members of our wildlife community. Looking at badgers as treasured members of Oregon’s total wildlife community should be the attitude we all share every time we see one crossing the road, or burrowing into a meadow eliminating pestiferous ground squirrels. We need them, and they need us!

The first official Pride March was held in New York City on June 28, 1970. The event commemorated the Stonewall Riots a year prior - a series of nights in which the LGTBQ+ community in New York fought back against police who were harassing, arresting and physically/verbally abusing patrons at the notorious Stonewall Inn. The bar is now a nationally recognized landmark. The first march welcomed a few thousand protestors standing up for gay/trans rights and liberation, while today, marches across the world number in the millions. June is now recognized as LGBTQ+ Pride Month with events held across the world spanning the entirety of June. Local groups such as OUT Central Oregon, Cult of Tuck, and numerous others have been hosting events in celebration of Pride month. This has spanned from fun active meetups like Pride roller skating and night paddle adventures to art and fashion shows. Central Oregon Pride 2022 will be a culmination of a month’s worth of celebration at Drake Park. The high energy event will feature local vendors, drinks/ food and lots of music and dancing! Back this year from 2019 is the Pride 5k Run/Walk that follows an out and back trail along the Deschutes River that starts and ends in Drake Park. Paired with the run/walk is the Drag Dash which will feature Central Oregon Kings and Queens competing for the coveted title of Drag Dash Darling. While June is officially recognized as Pride month, there are weekly and monthly events happening year-round in Bend hosted by the LGTBQ+ community. Each month brings a get together at Dogwood Cocktail Bar, an LGBTQ+ Climb Night at Bend Rock Gym, and various outdoor gatherings and tons of shows and meetups that are too numerous to list. OUT Central Oregon has an extensive list of events on its website: 2022 Central Oregon Pride June 25, Noon-5pm Drake Park 777 NW Riverside Blvd. Free

Butterflies of Central Oregon and Their Host Plants 49

Pale Tiger Swallowtail, Papilio eurymedon. This large (3+ inches) striking butterfly has pale white-to-cream wings with black windowpane markings, and bright orange and blue marks near its two long slender tails. Like the California tortoiseshell, pale swallowtails use snowbrush as a host plant, but they will also use oceanspray and serviceberry. Serviceberry (Amelanchier alnifolia) is a stunning native shrub that is covered with white blooms each spring. You’ll find it (and the pale swallowtail!) throughout Central Oregon as an understory plant in our pine forests and along our creeks and rivers. Pale swallowtail nectar sources include chokecherry, mints, lilies and penstemons. Look for these beautiful butterflies flying about most often in early summer.

wide variety of these amazing, delicate creatures, making them easy to spot and watch. It’s the bright colors that catch many people’s eye, but did you know that all butterflies are also deeply connected to the land around them? They rely on native plants as hosts for laying eggs, to provide the food young caterpillars need to survive, and as nectar sources to sip the liquid ingredients they need for nourishment. One of the most

California Tortoiseshell, Nymphalis californica. This medium sized (~ 2.5 inches) butterfly is bright orange with black wing margins and black spots. They are very common in Central Oregon and are often seen starting in late winter or early spring since they overwinter as adults, often hiding in crevices and other sheltered locations. Tortoiseshells rely on snowbrush (Ceanothus velutinus) as their host plants. This large shrub is a common understory plant in our pine forests that, when blooming, is covered in masses of white flowers. Tortoiseshells will lay their eggs in bunches on the snowbrush, and then the caterpillars will eat the leaves once they emerge. Snowbrush is a nectar source for these butterflies, but they will also sip from other flowers, from sap and even from drippy fir needles in spring! Tortoiseshells can be spotted flying about spring through fall, and even on warm winter days.

It’s one of our larger local butterflies (~3 inches) and is vividly colored: jet black slashed with glowing white diagonal stripes, orange wing tips on top, and brick red and white below. Its host plant is typically willow, but also aspen, cottonwood, serviceberry, oceanspray, and others. Willow is one of our most common shrubs, and it can be found in a wide variety of habitats including along our creeks and rivers. Lorquin’s Admirals are often seen perched on Pacific ninebark, sipping from mock orange, or visiting mustards, yarrow, thistle, dogbane, and others to refuel.

well-known examples is, of course, the monarch butterfly, which relies on milkweed as its sole host plant for egg-laying and caterpillar leaf-munching. This intricate relationship between butterfly and plant lends to the wonder of nature, and also offers a clue for where to look to find and identify the butterfly. Here are five butterflies to watch for that are common in early summer, along with their host plants and nectar sources:

Western Tailed Blue, Cupido amyntula. There are many different species of small blue butterflies in Central Oregon. In order to tell the difference between them, you typically need to see the underside of their wings, which can be a bit tricky given their small size and constant movement. The western tailed-blue is an average size for a blue (~1.25 inches), and it is one of the easiest blues to identify due to the tiny “tails” projecting off its hindwings (hence its name). These winged jewels rely on a variety of plants from the pea family (like milkvetch and golden pea) for egg laying, and will nectar from the same, as well as other wildflowers, rabbitbrush, and more. Look for the Western Tailed-blue in wet spots along our local trails where they frequently “puddle,” sipping salts and minerals from damp soil.

Two-Banded Checkered Skipper, Pyrgus ruralis. Skippers are another family of butterflies that have a more stout, compact body, more rapid wing beats to gain flight, and hooked ends on their antennae. The two-banded checkered skipper has dark wings with white “checker” patterns, and ranges in size from 1-1.5 inches. They are a common sight in late spring/early summer, often nectaring on dandelions, strawberries and other early bloomers. Mallows are a favored host plant, as are cinquefoils and strawberries. You can spot these skippers in a wide variety of habitats, from woodlands to meadows, pastures, and backyards. Wondering where to find some butterflies to watch? Head to Deschutes Land Trust’s Metolius Preserve where you can see all these species. Park at the north trailhead and walk the Larch loop for the best viewing opportunities. And, always remember, butterflies are fragile creatures. They have delicate scales on their wings that can fall off when touched, so they are best viewed from a distance using binoculars. Happy butterflying! Sarah Mowry is the Outreach Director for Deschutes Land Trust. Amanda Egertson is the organization’s Stewardship Director.

The Birth of Beervana

An excerpt from "A Woman's Place is in the Brewhouse..." By Tara Nurin

espite all of women’s advances in the beer industry, it often feels like a world full of haze bois and beer bros. But women have been intimately involved in beer from the beginning – whether making beer for the family to drink in ancient times or selling beer to support the earliest family-owned craft brewing businesses. In an edited excerpt from her book, "A Woman’s Place Is in the Brewhouse: A Forgotten History of Alewives, Brewsters, Witches and CEOs," Tara Nurin introduces us to some of the women who helped turn the Pacific Northwest into one of the original homes for small-batch brewing. Tom Baune, like many of his peers, had been a homebrewer. When he and his wife, Beth Hartwell, decided to follow the lead of a very few others in opening a small brewery in 1983, they found a home for Hart Brewing in a rickety 100‑year‑old building in the old logging town of Kalama, Washington, thirty miles north of Portland. “Everything about it was not going to work,” says Beth. They leased, then bought the building anyway, and throughout the ‘80s formed a loose circle with a list of acquaintances that reads as the who’s who of Oregon and Washington brewing. Members of this community taught themselves and one another how to brew, leaning on the most experienced among them, Karl Ockert, of BridgePort Brewing in Portland, for his knowledge. Karl’s wife, Carole, tells Oregon Hops and Brewing Archives curator Tiah Edmunson-Morton in a recorded interview, “Passionate isn’t the right word from my perspective. They were just enthralled. Yeah, people [thought it was] weird and they [didn’t] necessarily think it [was] going to go anywhere but… it [was] such excitement.” The mostly 20-somethings borrowed necessities like sugar and hops from one another, hung out after intense 14‑hour workdays, swapped beers, and partied together. As hardworking young spouses and parents, they encouraged their significant others to keep up their support by including families and children in work and social affairs. Carole remembers clipping baby seats onto bars, feeding little mouths under linen‑covered restaurant tables, and entrusting the teens to watch the

younger ones at conferences. She feels this set a precedent for craft beer to become a family‑friendly space. “I certainly didn’t feel left out and maybe part of that was because I had the privilege of having someone who wanted to have his family included,” Carole says. Though technical advancements, along with trial and error, helped these family businesses professionalize a bit, professional didn’t equal easy. For Beth and the handful of women blazing their beer trail through the Pacific Northwest in the 1980s, running a brewery literally meant working almost around the clock at the brewhouse, traveling to make supply runs and sales calls, and trying to raise a young family. “I did every job in the brewery,” says Irene Firmat, who traveled out west from a fashion‑buying job in Manhattan before conceiving of Full Sail Brewing (originally Hood River Brewing), bringing in investors, and marrying the head brewer she hired. “I was the general manager, I helped brew, I cleaned the bathrooms, I cooked in the pub. The only thing I really never did was drive a forklift. I’m a very bad driver,” she says. “I stood on a bottling line with a baby on my back for 13 hours,” seconds Beth, mother of two. “I was going 136 miles to Seattle a couple times each week to do tastings and 30 miles to Portland to chase parts. There was always work to be done.” Sadly, transferring to the beer world didn’t give empowered women like Beth and Irene much of an advantage. They insist their male colleagues never treated them with any inferiority, but these businesswomen couldn’t muster much credit from men outside their circle. Irene refused to sell to anyone who told her they didn’t “take orders from ladies,” and Beth had a similar reaction to bar owners and notoriously chauvinistic wholesalers who told her to come back with her husband. “Where’s Tom?” they’d ask. “Brewing,” she’d answer. “Someone’s got to do it.” Tara Nurin is the beer and spirits contributor to Forbes, an adjunct Beer 101 instructor at Wilmington University in Delaware, and author of "A Woman’s Place Is In The Brewhouse."

ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny CANCER (June 21-July 22): Filmmaker Jean-



Luc Godard believes there’s only one way to find a sense of meaning, and that is to fill your life to the bursting point; to be in love with your experience; to celebrate the flow of events wherever it takes you. When you do that, Godard says, you have no need or urge to ask questions like “Why am I here?” or “What is my purpose?” The richness of your story is the ultimate response to every enigma. As I contemplate these ideas, I say: wow! That’s an intensely vibrant way to live. Personally, I’m not able to sustain it all the time. But I think most of us would benefit from such an approach for brief periods now and then. And I believe you have just entered one of those phases.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I asked Leo readers to provide their insights about the topic “How to Be a Leo.” Here are responses that line up with your current astrological omens. 1. People should try to understand you’re only bossing them around for their benefit. —Harlow Hunt. 2. Be alert for the intense shadows you may cast with your intense brightness. Consider the possibility that even if they seem iffy or dicey, they have value and even blessings to offer. —Cannarius Kansen. 3. Never break your own heart. Never apologize for showering yourself with kindness and adoration. —Amy Clear. 4. At the moment of orgasm, scream out your own name. —Bethany Grace VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s your birthright as a Virgo to become a master of capitalizing on difficulties. You have great potential to detect opportunities coalescing in the midst of trouble. You can develop a knack for spotting the order that’s hiding in the chaos. Now is a time when you should wield these skills with artistry, my dear— both for your own benefit and for the betterment of everyone whose lives you touch.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): One of my heroes died in 2021: the magnificent Libran author bell hooks (who didn’t capitalize her name). She was the most imaginative and independent-minded activist I knew. Till her last day, she articulated one-of-a-kind truths about social justice; she maintained her uncompromising originality. But it wasn’t easy. She wrote, “No insurgent intellectual, no dissenting critical voice in this society escapes the pressure to conform. We are all vulnerable. We can all be had, co-opted, bought. There is no special grace that rescues any of us. There is only a constant struggle.” I bring this to your attention, Libra, because I suspect the coming weeks will require your strenuous efforts to remain true to your high standards and unique vision of reality.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You now have the power to make yourself even more beautiful than you already are. You are extraordinarily open to beautifying influences, and there will be an abundance of beautifying influences coming your way. I trust you understand I’m not referring to the kinds of beauty that are worshiped by conventional wisdom. Rather, I mean the elegance, allure, charm, and grace that you behold in old trees and gorgeous architecture and enchanting music and people with soulful idiosyncrasies. PS: The coming weeks will also be a favorable time to redefine the meaning of beauty for yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s the Season for Expressing Your Love—and for expanding and deepening the ways you express your love. I invite you to speak the following quotes to the right person: 1. “Your head is a living forest full of songbirds.” —E. E. Cummings. 2. “Lovers continuously reach each other’s boundaries.” —Rainer Maria Rilke, 3. “You’re my favorite unfolding story.” — Ann Patchett. 4. “My lifetime listens to yours.” — Muriel Rukeyser.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the coming weeks, make sure you do NOT fit this description articulated by Capricorn novelist Haruki Murakami: “You’re seeking something, but at the same

time, you are running away for all you’re worth.” If there is any goal about which you feel conflicted like that, dear Capricorn, now is a good time to clear away your confusion. If you are in some sense undercutting yourself, perhaps unconsciously, now is the time to expose your inner saboteur and seek the necessary healing. July will be Self-Unification Month.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A Tweeter named Luxuryblkwomen articulates one of her ongoing goals: “bridging the gap between me and my ideal self, one day at a time.” I’d love it if you would adopt a similar aspiration in the coming months. You’re going to be exceptionally skilled at all types of bridge-building, including the kind that connects you to the hero you’ll be in the future. I mean, you are already a hero in my eyes, but I know you will ultimately become an even more fulfilled and refined version of your best self. Now is a favorable time to do the holy work of forging stronger links to that star-to-be. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A blogger named Lissar suggests that the cherry blossom is an apt symbol for you Pisceans. She describes you as “transient, lissome, blooming, lovely, fragile yet memorable and recurring, in tune with nature.” Lissar says you “mystify yet charm,” and that your “presence is a balm, yet awe-inspiring and moving.” Of course, like all of us, you also have your share of less graceful qualities. And that’s not a bad thing! We’re all here to learn the art of growing into our ripe selves. It’s part of the fun of being alive. But I suspect that in the coming weeks, you will be an extra close match for Lissar’s description. You are at the peak of your power to delight and beguile us. ARIES (March 21-April 19): In her poem “Two Skins,” Bahamanian writer Lynn Sweeting writes, “There is a moment in every snake’s life when she wears two skins: one you can see, about to be shed, one you cannot see, the skin under the skin, waiting.” I suspect you now have metaphorical resemblances to a snake on the verge of molting, Aries. Congratulations on your imminent rebirth! Here’s a tip: The snake’s old skin doesn’t always just fall away; she may need to take aggressive action to tear it open and strip it off, like by rubbing her head against a rock. Be ready to perform a comparable task.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Imagine a world 300 years from now,” writes Japanese novelist Minae Mizumura, “a world in which not only the best-educated people but also the brightest minds and the deepest souls express themselves only in English. Imagine the world subjected to the tyranny of a singular ‘Logos.’ What a narrow, pitiful, and horrid world that would be!” Even though I am primarily an English speaker, I agree with her. I don’t want a world purged of diversity. Don’t want a monolithic culture. Don’t want everyone to think and speak the same. I hope you share my passion for multiplicity, Taurus—especially these days. In my astrological opinion, you’ll thrive if you immerse yourself in a celebratory riot of variety. I hope you will seek out influences you’re not usually exposed to.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Imagine you’re not a person, but a medley of four magical ingredients. What would they be? A Gemini baker named Jasmine says, “ripe persimmons, green hills after a rain, a sparkling new Viking Black Glass Oven, and a prize-winning show horse.” A Gemini social worker named Amarantha says she would be made of “Florence and the Machine’s song ‘Sky Full of Song,’ a grove of birch trees, a blue cashmere knee-length sweater, and three black cats sleeping in the sun.” A Gemini delivery driver named Altoona says, “freshly harvested cannabis buds, a bird-loving wetlands at twilight, Rebecca Solnit’s book Hope in the Darkness, and the Haleakalā shield volcano in Maui.” And now, Gemini, what about you? Identify your medley of four magical ingredients. The time is right to re-imagine the poetry of YOU.

Homework: Make amends to a part of yourself you have neglected, insulted, or wounded.



Enough! What is to be done in these trying times?

Poems for a Cause by Kim Stafford What’s your calling? What’s your cause? If it’s justice, then pen a few just words into a chant or song that can

call us all upright to witness and to testify. If you believe education is the key, then compose a winsome proclamation for a child to recite, standing small but tall in the hall of power. If it’s Earth that tugs your heart, or immigrant children who haunt your dreams, or people by bad luck cast out to camp under the overpass, then find a way to sing your sorrows into remedy, your hurt into help, syllables to gather others, so words can guide our work, and your pain be our refrain for change. A neighbor then thought to forward me the link to Lift Every Voice Oregon, where signatures are being gathered for the “Reduction of Gun Violence Act” petition, due July 1. 140,000 names and it’s on the November ballot. A few days later a college classmate sent links to MVP to facilitate voter registration. And then a sibling, who earlier watched a Great Blue heron land and settle by a marsh, told me beholding that moment of elegance and beauty made him realize, “Our task is to love the cherishable, to love the world back to health.” And last, for now, Garrison Keillor. Before I describe the miracle he produced at the Tower Theatre last week, please note the average age of the above-mentioned individuals is 70. So, no, elders do not go quietly into the night. We go thoughtfully, doing what we can and what time allows. Back to Garrison Keillor. He led a two-plus-hour refresher course in being curious and goofy and open and human and caring. He reminded us that in a scarier world we need our own family and community stories (not television’s or YouTube’s or movie theaters’) more than ever. He happens to know a few. We laughed out loud, mostly at ourselves, such is his skill. We shed tears. We sang “Let Him Have Your Burden Now,” and other beautiful spirituals, belted out patriotic songs we haven’t stood up and sung with others in a long time. Strangers no more, we were united in laughter, song and hope. Canavan ends his review by underscoring Robinson’s point that there is in fact enough for all, and there are solutions to worldwide problems if we but have the will to enact them. “Enough is as good as a feast — or better,” he says. So, OK, I’m changing my tune from enough already to enough for all.


“In a sense we all already know What Is To Be Done, and the real problem is navigating the grief and fear and selfishness that prevents us from ever actually putting what we all know to be true into practice.” This quote is from author Gerry Canavan’s review of K.S. Robinson’s latest book, "The Ministry of the Future," a sci-fi nonfiction which outlines humans’ options given occurrences worldwide. “You know what I am. I am History. Now make me good,” writes Robinson. But how? All the tragedies, the social, environmental and economic problems—it’s enough. Too much heavy lifting. To help navigate all this, I offer a favorite note-to-self. When there are problems aplenty, don’t drive with your high beams on…you see too much of the road ahead. Keep your lights on low. If ever there was a time for low beams, this is it…as well as for taking a breath, for stopping, listening and not to the news. Instead, seek the counsel of nature, books, friends. It’s also a time to take time to sit, stock-still, every day. Call it prayer, meditation, staring off into space. When I do, unexpected revelations show up as a result. And here they came. Starting on May 27, the first ah-ha was reading about the video Ben Beers posted online. The former Marine, who spent four years in Iraq and now is the father of two, explains why, in the aftermath of the Uvalde shooting, “…I’m turning in my weapons to the Hillsboro Police Department in Oregon. Both my AR-15 and my 9 mm handgun. I no longer want them. I know this will not change legislation or anything to do with gun culture in America, but, hopefully, it will be a form of symbolism. Hopefully America can wake up. Because no other country has the problems that we do with gun culture and ideation and gun violence that we do. Amend the Constitution. Amend the legislation. Amend the statutes.” A day later his video had been viewed 200,000 times. Ben Beers is a cat to copy. Next, an email from Oregon’s former poet laureate, Kim Stafford, with the gift of a poem attached. A call to words, if you will:

Is The Real Estate Market Finally Stabilizing?

What today’s indicators mean for buyers has been and still is a great long-term investment. Though home prices fluctuate up and down with the economy, over time your property will appreciate. Do you wish you would have bought in 2008/09? Do you wish you would have bought just before the pandemic began? Just about everyone can say they wish they would have bought back then, whenever “then” may have been. Prices will never be the same when you look back. The second piece of advice is to evaluate your current situation. Are you renting and paying someone else’s mortgage? Talk to a local lender to see what your options could be for buying a home and earning equity. It could be possible, but you won’t know until you start the process. Maybe you own your home but are looking to downsize or upsize. Getting a comparable market analysis prepared by an expert real estate broker is your first step. Lastly, consider reexamining your mindset regarding what kind of home you want. We all want the dream home that checks all the boxes. But retraining your brain and shortening your list of must-haves can save you a significant amount of money in the long term. Instead of looking for the perfect colors, granite counter tops and beautiful landscaping, look for the perfect lot, your ideal location, and a layout you can live with. The cosmetic stuff can always be changed, and a lot can be done yourself! Bottom line? If you’re a buyer looking to reenter the market, now is a great time. Partner with an expert who can help you capitalize on this window of opportunity.

y now, you’ve likely seen headlines indicating a change is taking place in the real estate market, both nationally and locally. It’s true. A shift is happening. But the sky is not falling. In actuality, the market appears to be stabilizing, or correcting, and that means buyers have a window of opportunity after experiencing two years of a frenzied seller’s market. Let’s dig into what’s really happening. Many factors can cause a shift in the housing market, but a couple of key influences right now are inventory and mortgage rates. In May 2022, the month’s supply of inventory was up 47% in Bend. New listings also increased in May, by close to 6% month over month. And while mortgage rates remain historically low, the near doubling since the beginning of the pandemic has caused some hesitation and altered budgets for some buyers. As buyers become more hesitant with rates and as more inventory becomes available, the market begins to shift more in favor of buyers. Some sellers can wait to sell their homes, but others may already be pending on a new home or have other reasons for needing to sell quickly, which can result in price reductions. According to the MLS, price reductions of local residential listings increased by 43% in May, with an average increase in price reductions at 27% from January to May of this year. If you are in the process of reentering the market or even just contemplating whether you should, here are a few suggestions to think about. First and most importantly, timing, rates, and other economic factors may never be perfect, but buying a home
