t’s no secret that Deschutes County is growing—moving from 157,733 people counted in the 2010 U.S. Census to a population estimate of 191,988 people as of July 2018. The Bend-Redmond metropolitan area landed at #9 on the U.S. Census Bureau’s list of Top 10 Metropolitan Areas in Percentage Growth for between 2017 and 2018, and #8 on the Census Bureau’s Top 10 Metropolitan Areas in Percentage Growth for between 2010 to 2018. This is not breaking news. Still, last year, in a time of record-breaking growth that lands us on nationally ranked charts, Deschutes County Commissioners opted to lower property taxes—thereby lowering the per capita amount the County would take in for the coming budget cycle. According to rankings published by The Oregonian in October 2018, Deschutes County ranks 28th of 35 counties in Oregon for its tax rate, making it among some of the lowest in the state. (Crook County ranked #19; Jefferson County #23.) Deschutes County’s budget covers important services that include the Health Department, 911 services, the Sheriff’s office, the landfill and the District Attorney’s offices. More people in the county means more need for services—more space in landfills, more calls to 911—and more arrests and prosecutions. In a time when the region sorely needs more mental health services and a full-time sobering center, scoring political points by lowering taxes seemed to take a front seat to offering the full complement of services citizens badly need.

With all that in mind, it should come as no surprise that the office tasked with handling prosecutions would feel the population growth acutely. It should also come as no surprise that the DA’s office would need more bandwidth to be able to manage the extra workload that comes with adding roughly 35,000 people to the county in just eight years’ time— not to mention an increase of tourists. This spring, DA John Hummel requested an additional $1 million in his budget to deal with the load. His office has seen high turnover due to overloaded attorneys experiencing burnout, he said, adding that some cases did not receive the preparation they deserved before trials. If this continues and he doesn’t receive the budget he needs to hire additional staff, Hummel told the Source he’d be forced to stop prosecuting some lower-level crimes. Hummel has been criticized for his stance, but we see it as a reasonable response to an increasingly untenable situation. Hummel’s decision not to prioritize which parts of the requested extra $1 million he would be willing to “compromise” on or dispense with is the move of a public servant leaning on the side of public safety and adequate prosecution services. It’s a bold political position for a DA to say, “give me the money or else.” And, yet, this is the way to receive public awareness of a dire situation. Deschutes County Commissioners’ decision to cut property taxes in the face of explosive growth was short-sighted, and poor policy has real-life ramifications. Threats to public safety are one of them. The County needs to find the budget to keep the DA’s office fully funded.




FUTURE OF CENTRAL OREGON’S ENVIRONMENT Want to know what the future holds for the environment of Bend and the rest of Central Oregon? I was born in Bend in 1940, but have cousins in Southern California… Several want to move to Oregon. Why? Rapid population growth in Southern California has resulted in a loss of open space due to development and sprawl. Housing costs are beyond the reach of average income workers. The schools are deteriorating because of poverty, gangs, drug use and large illegal immigrant population, 50 percent of whom have not graduated from high school. (Over 45 percent of households speak a language other than English.) Traffic is terrible, in some cases requiring long hours in transit to work.

Opinions printed here do not constitute an editorial endorsement of said opinions. Letter of the week receives $5 to Palate! Many have moved here to get away from all that. The irony is that with current population trends, Central Oregon is destined to closely replicate Southern California. Look at the rapid expansion of development between Bend and Redmond. How long until much of the open space between Sunriver, Bend, Redmond and Sisters is gone? Watch as newly developed Reed Market Rd. is swallowed by a flood of cars due to unbridled development in the area. Much of our environmental degradation is due to a business model that relies on population growth for success and gives lip services to the protection of the natural environment. A community that placed value on its scenic open space would not allow it to be paved over with sagebrush subdivisions, destination resorts and strip zoning along its major highways. Has anyone reviewed Bend’s 2030 goals to see if we are achieving objectives for the protection of trees and wildlife? Affordable housing is important, but officials need to realize that this country’s open borders will supply an endless number of people (over 100,000 are illegally crossing the border each month) many who will be drawn here. We are told that planning will help us avoid the problems of Southern California. Has anyone seen evidence of that so far? Perhaps a new vision is required to protect what is left of our livability. —William Brewer

IN RESPONSE TO, “NEXT UP…NYT” ON 5/31 I have lived in three towns that were ruined by tourism. I count the months now before I will be fed up with Bend and then move on. I have never lived in a town that was so relentlessly self promotional. While I do enjoy the shoulder seasons it is the goal of Visit Bend to ensure that we soon have 365 days a year of nonstop tourists and in doing so we get all the problems associated with it. Businesses may love it but eventually many people will do what I do and move on. I know where I will go next and I don’t plan on telling anyone where that is. Good luck Bend. You’re gonna need it. — Andrew West, via

WHAT A GREEN NEW DEAL COULD MEAN FOR BEND Our high school students showed us all up on March 15th when they publicly protested climate change at the expense of their education. And rightly so—they have the most years



Thanks to the recent rains, the trails are in great shape. It doesn’t get any better than this! Along with bike season, comes campers. Get off of any single track, and ride along a Forest Service road. You will see numerous campsites, some of which produce piles of trash, human waste (i.e. turds!) and unattended fire rings. You may also come across the coyote that behaves more like a dog than her feral species. She is NOT afraid of people. A bad thing for her, and us. She is obviously being fed and/ or feasting on trash. If she has pups, they will also be unafraid of people. This is a self-perpetuating situation that will lead to disaster. As for unattended fires; I have friends who have put out several fires that have spread from containment. Riders could be trapped in a forest fire. The proximity of Phil’s to town could easily cause the loss of homes. This is a reality with hot dry summers. It is past due time that a regulated campground be established in the Phil’s Trailhead area. A campground will get everyone in one place, with access to dumpsters and pit toilets. Make camping on forest roads illegal. If you are in agreement, please contact the Deschutes National Forest Service. 541-383-5300. Share your thoughts. Perhaps something will be done. In the meantime: Campers; don’t leave trash behind, bury your poop, put out your fires and DON’T FEED THE ANIMALS! — Maureen Cruse

left on this little blue (for now) planet, and bear the least amount of responsibility for the dwindling state of the environment. But why should this little town be worried? I mean, Bend is full of environmentally responsible people who know that plastic bags are hell’s hand-baskets and that owning an electric car will get them into heaven, right? I have bad news for you: they aren’t the problem. It’s the rest of us—people like me—who are a) exclusively interested in choosing what is most convenient, not what is most environmentally conscious and b) don’t believe carrying around reusable utensils so that one more plastic spoon avoids a landfill today is enough to stop the ice caps from melting. The only solution for we, the many selfish unbelievers, as well as those in denial that we’re even in a crisis, is massive targeted policy change in favor of inconvenience as law. Bend is already overfilled — our green space, walkability and air quality are already under attack from overpopulation as well as environmental factors. A Green New Deal could reverse that. If you love Bend and want to see it flourish, not decline into a polluted, impoverished ghost town, the Green New Deal should be a no brainer. We only have 12 years, people.

The U.S. cross country ski team trains for its upcoming season By Chris Miller


n a blustery Friday at Mt. Bachelor’s Nordic Center, the Source caught up with U.S. Cross Country Ski Team’s head coach plus some other members to chat about their time training in Bend. “We love it,” Chris Grover, head coach for the cross country team said while sitting inside the Nordic Center. “I mean, it’s a no-brainer for us because there’s great skiing and Sue (Foster) and her staff at Mt. Bachelor take absolute care of us—they provide us with excellent trail conditions and we can ski every morning and then we can mountain bike on your guy’s incredible infrastructure of trail networks. And we have great lifting—we get to lift at the Athletic Club (of Bend) and then they take care of us at Rebound Physical Therapy.” Haley Swirbul, a 20-year-old skier from Anchorage, Alaska, said this is her second year coming to Bend to train. Swirbul—who races in the skate and classic skiing categories—said she likes coming to Bend because of the welcoming community and the environment.

“They (Mt. Bachelor) do such a great job with grooming and opening the facilities for us, and the Athletic Club of Bend and the people here are just excited about skiing,” Swirbul said, munching on an energy bar while she escaped the driving rain. Grover said 18 of the team’s 20 athletes came to Bend this year to kick off their training season, in preparation for the World Cup and other racing this winter. Along with them is the full staff from the U.S. ski and snowboard teams, helping with nutrition, general strength training and physical therapy. “The training facilities down in Bend and being able to ski up here every morning, it’s a unique place,” Grover said about why the team comes to Bend to train. “There are very few places in the world that really have this to offer, so it’s a camp that we never questioned, and the athletes never questioned it, because they love coming here and we love coming here and it’s just a great way to start our year.”

Grover said he gets the racers—who range in age from 17 to 33—to refocus on their skiing technique and has them doing interval and speed work. The more intense workouts come closer to the ski season. “Making sure the athletes are going into the end of the preparation season from a good technical starting place and when they go to roller skis or they’re in subsequent ski camps, hopefully they are ingraining really good patterns of

movement based on some of the work they’ve done here,” Grover said. The team was here from May 20 to June 3. Even though most of its time was spent training, they did have some time for fun, as well. “The river wave, we got to do that last year and a lot of people are hoping to do it again,” Swirbul said. “We have some supporters in town who are generous with wet suits and boards—they’re awesome.”


Tariffs Could Rip Sole from U.S. Shoe Companies


Industry insiders say costs will be passed on to consumers, but a local shoe biz says it’s time for manufacturing to return



n May 14, the Trump Administration announced a proposal to restrict imports to the U.S. on $300 billion in Chinese goods—including higher tariffs against shoe imports. Soon after, more than 170 of the nation’s largest footwear companies—including Nike, Adidas and Converse—sent a letter to The White House warning of the “catastrophic” effects the proposed tariffs would have on companies, consumers and the economy. “We can assure you that any increase in the cost of importing shoes has a direct impact on the American footwear consumer,” the groups wrote in a letter published at, an industry publication. “It is an unavoidable fact that as prices go up at the border due to transportation costs, labor rate increases or additional duties, the consumer pays more for the product.” The Trump Administration proposal has some local business owners concerned. Pierce Footwear, a Bend-based company that’s been designing performance running shoes since 2014, has its products manufactured in China, according to CEO and Founder, George Pierce. Pierce told the Source that if the tariffs go into effect, many companies in the industry will move production to countries that have an experienced workforce and established materials ecosystems, but with little or no tariffs. Most imports from Korea, for example, enter the U.S. with no duty or import

processing fee—which stems from the 2012 Korean Free Trade Agreement, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. “We look at Korea with high shoemaking history and no import duties as well as Vietnam with established production facilities,” Pierce said. “We continue to formulate plans for Bend production in some ways.” According to the American Apparel and Footwear Association, 98 percent of all shoes, clothes, fashion accessories and travel goods sold in the U.S. are imported. The Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America estimates the proposed tariffs would tack on an additional $7 billion in annual costs for customers, on top of an existing $3 billion in tariffs paid by the shoe industry, which stem from legislation in 1930 intended to protect U.S. manufacturing during the Great Depression. The FDRA said many retailers have begun to map out costs for 2020 and some of its members are worried the new tariffs will put them out of business. The industry group said if the tariffs kick in, consumers would feel it almost immediately, which could affect holiday sales and back-to-school inventory. “Big box retail with very cheap kids shoes will see a price increase to consumers eliminating the $20 throw-away kids models,” Pierce said. “Consumers will look for better quality footwear, look to buy more local or U.S. products,

the breakthrough needed for localized production. “Shoe manufacturing in Bend would drive economic benefits for many other local Bend sports product companies that require sewing, dye cutting, injection molding and glue-less assembly,” Pierce said. Manufacturing shoes in the U.S. isn’t out of the question right now, either. Danner, one of Oregon’s shoe icons, manufactures one-third of its shoes in the 59,000-square-foot factory that opened in 2012 in Northeast Portland, according to a story on Oregonlive. “It is time for the USA to redefine the shoe manufacturing industry with more than just 3D printing,” Pierce said. “Innovation in glue-less assembly, automated stitching, water based screening and 100 percent recycled footwear are investable technologies with environmental benefits. "With a comprehensive smart footwear strategy backed by government and private equity investors, the U.S. can regain its innovative and environmental leadership in shoe making so that it is a net exporter to the world.” President Trump is expected to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping during the G20 Summit June 28 to 29 in Osaka, Japan, to try to work out an end to the trade war.

as a backlash to China pricing. Since China produces 80 percent of the shoes imported to the USA, this has a major impact on all retailers.” According to industry groups, the shoe industry is deeply entrenched in China. Nearly 75 percent of imports come from Chinese manufacturing— and can’t simply move factories to adjust to these tariffs, according to the AAFA. The current trade war with China started in 2017 after the U.S. launched an investigation into Chinese trade practices, then slapped tariffs on billions of dollars’ worth of Chinese goods. The Trump Administration said, “Imposing tariffs incentivizes companies to move production back to the U.S.,” according to Footwear News. Pierce said moving manufacturing back to the U.S. won’t happen overnight, due to the complexities of making footwear, which depend on multiple layers of suppliers. “However, it does continue to drive companies like Pierce Footwear to figure out how to build a 100 percent recycled shoe in Bend,” Pierce said. Pierce said stitching is half of the shoemaking cost and that automation of the process has already begun in the U.S.—which ultimately could produce

When it comes to learning and achieving, a few successful Bend athletes see themselves as both mentors and mentees

The Summit High School cross country team.

“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” — Isaac Newton


eachers, advisors, guides, counselors, coaches, confidants: All people whose role is to bring out greatness in others. The modern world is wrought with crossroads, confusing choices and rapid-fire messages. Mentorship is one way to clear the path toward success. From Jesus and Socrates, to Steve Jobs and Yoda, those who mentor are a vital link in human development, and in the quest for knowledge. I sat down with some local people who are committed to mentorship— both offering it and receiving it. Learning and running Andy Fleming is a school counselor at Summit High School. A former collegiate soccer player who loves running, Nordic skiing and cycling, Fleming has helped coach the Summit cross country team since 2012. Working with close to 400 students in his counseling role, he wishes he had more time for mentoring. “My goal is to connect with as many students as I can, giving them as many opportunities as possible. Get them into the right classes and work as a

middleman (for communicating) to teachers,” he says. “My job is to counsel on both the academic and social spectrums. I help students navigate the multiple voices they hear from teachers, parents and coaches,” he says. Fleming says his background in athletics has taught him that putting in the work breeds success. “In individual athletics you can see the outcomes of the work you put in…or don’t. If you don’t train, it’s difficult to win.” Mentorship for the mentor Fleming moved to Bend six years ago and began coaching at Summit, where he coaches under the watchful eye of Head Distance Coach Jim McLatchie—a former national champ back home in Scotland. “Jim really took me under his wing and taught me more about coaching than I ever thought possible,” says Fleming. “He taught me the art of coaching. If athletes are invested in the training, he is invested in assisting them attain the goal,” Fleming says. He’s quick to point out that it’s “Their goal (the athlete), and not his (McLatchie). Summit has seen serious success under these coaches, who also include McLatchie’s wife, Carol. The Summit girls won the Class 6A state championships in

November, and also won the Nike Cross Nationals in December. Over time, Fleming and McLatchie built a friendship, running together and enjoying weekly dinners. “We developed a mutual trust within training and in developing the running team,” he says. “He is an incredible role model, and I am fortunate to have him as a friend.” Fleming’s role within the cross country squad is that of a volunteer these days, but it has put him in a unique position to observe the team and its members. Izzy Max, and her twin sister, Fiona, are two of those members. “They are the best teammates. (They) include all the athletes from all the events. Although they are at the top of their games, they support all the other teammates, whether they are cheerleading or assisting in training. They are the first to say hello, ask how things are going, and incredibly inclusive,” says Fleming. Working with Izzy most of the time, Fleming says, “She is the kind of athlete that inspires both the athletes and the coaching staff. She helps create and maintain a culture among the team, where they set goals, push hard and train every day. It’s pretty amazing.” In terms of mentorship and ongoing learning, Fleming counsels students to take an active role. “Go out of your

way to form relationships with people. Search for your opportunities. Don’t wait for a mentor to find you. Interact. Actively seek and find your mentor,” Fleming advises. “At every stage of life, we have a ‘rucksack’ of experiences. I tell students to fill that pack. Surround yourself with people who have experiences that interest you. Move away from the ones who don’t,” he says passionately. “Want to travel to Europe? Find people who have. Integrate. Try to add value to your relationships. If you don’t think you have anything to add, ask how you can help. You don’t have to be a world-class runner; you can find a way to be involved and add to the overall experience of the community.” Teaching and mentoring Matt Fox has been teaching and coaching for 20 years, and sees similarities between teaching, coaching and mentorship. “I think perhaps a part of the difference is how the relationship forms. As a teacher I am in a role as the facilitator,” he says. Currently teaching at both Bend and Skyline High Schools, Fox teaches graphic design, photography and a social justice class called Design Justice. He also coaches mountain biking and cyclocross with Bend Endurance Academy. “Coaching, on the

other hand, includes many of the skills of teaching and, in addition, is about encouragement, analysis and directing athletes,” says Fox. “I see mentorship as more of a sounding board and a discussion, more of shared knowledge and teamwork.” Fox sees mentorship as a unique relationship with no authority figure. “It can improve learning, because there isn’t any sort of dynamic of ‘who has the knowledge and who doesn’t.’ It puts both people in the relationship on a level playing field and creates more of a discussion and feedback loop where questions, constructive criticism and brainstorming are really valued,” he says. Fox also says he learns a lot from fellow teachers, who serve as his mentors. “These are people who I can run ideas by, share questions and talk about what I am working on. I like to think I fill this role for a number of teachers, as well. I also have friends who I race and ride bikes with and I think of them in this role, too,” he says. “I see a mentor as someone who is on the same path and striving for something similar, someone that I can talk to about what it is we are working on.”

Enjoying the ride and learning from peers “I know for a fact that I would never be where I am today without my peers, mentors and coaches,” says Natasha Visnack, a competitive rider for Bend Endurance Academy. “My peers have pushed me to ride faster, train harder and enjoy more. When I first started, I only knew cycling as a ‘suffer-fest.’ The older team members—my mentors—showed me that (there is) more to cycling than just intervals and climbs,” she says. “My coaches worked with me every ride to help me build skills that have helped me place at national events, given me the drive to take gold, and to be a mentor myself,” says Visnack. Mentorship to Visnack involves “passing down experiences and being a strong role model on and off the trail.” Encouragement and communication are key. “I think mentorship is less about being taught and more about the communication of experiences. While a coach may include some of their own experiences into coaching, the main goal of coaching is to have the student learn. Mentorship on the other hand is less about actual teaching of a skill and more about allowing the mentee to understand the sport/activity better by getting another perspective on it.” Courtesy Natash Visnack

“I’m Getting Used to Living Without You” The Color Study’s latest single preps Scott Oliphant for success on his upcoming record By Isaac Biehl


he Color Study is the one-man creative project of Bend-based Scott Oliphant. Oliphant’s voice possesses a light and dream-like sort of tone, making it easy to listen to and digest – which is a rather endearing quality for vocalists to have. According to The Color Study’s bio, the birth of this new music was a bumpy ride: Oliphant’s relationship ended, he moved out of his house, bought an old veterinarian office and turned it into a studio. “It was an incredibly tough time,” Oliphant says of that transitioning period. “I was living in my recording studio while trying to figure out which end was up. I threw myself into making something instead of passing the time doing what I was doing, which was not very

productive or healthy.” The work done in that studio/home are all culminating toward the release of The Color Study’s self-titled debut album. The first single off the record, called “Without,” just premiered on OPB on May 30. That gem runs for just under five minutes but is an absolute breeze to listen to. “Without” is a smart blend of folk, pop, indie and psych rock with a ringing chorus and powerful closing seconds that allow the listener to really embrace the entire song.

The Color Study’s Scott Oliphant is pickin' and a grinnin' through his one-man project.

Local Scene

Central Oregon’s musicians work hard, and they play hard. Here are some of the highlights of what’s happening among local musicians this week. THURSDAY



TRIBUTE SHOW Quon will play in ode to the man who inspired himself to pick up a guitar way back in the beginning. 6:30-8:30pm. The Commons, 875 NW Brooks St., Bend. No cover. SUNDAY Submitted

“I wrote this song after a few months of just feeling totally lost,” says Oliphant. “One day, I became aware of feeling what seems impossible at first: getting used to being without someone.” This track is an essential piece to the core of themes that are propelling The Color Study’s debut. “Without” really captures the feeling of moving on from loss in a way that’s well done. It’s not overpoweringly happy, but it’s realistic; a melancholic spoonful of realization that serves as a stepping stone to better days. You can find “Without” on Apple Music, Spotify and Soundcloud. You can find The Color Study’s debut album out later this year.



AMERICANA Jam out on the lawn and listen to sweet tunes from Alicia Viani and Mark Karwan. We covered her story on the way to her debut album back in February. Read more online. 2-4pm. Bend Brewing Company, 1019 NW Brooks St., Bend. No cover. WEDNESDAY 6/12

Let’s Pull Together

Why are noxious weeds a problem? • The problem of noxious, non-native weeds proliferating in Central Oregon is severe. • Many noxious weeds overrun native vegetation, reducing habitat for other plants and wildlife, destroying ecosystems by altering soil, hydrology, stealing scarce water, and increasing fire danger.

ORANGE HAWKWEED (Hieracium aurantiacum) is a perennial with above-ground runners

(stolons) that root at the tips. Roots are shallow and fibrous. The plant grows up to 12 inches tall and contains milky juice. The flowers cluster at the top of a leafless stem. Stiff black, glandular hairs cover flower stalks. Leaves are hairy, lance shaped, up to 5 inches long and exclusively basal.

• Noxious weeds infest crops and cost local communities in terms of visual blight, a reduction of property values, and lost agricultural production. • Some noxious weeds are poisonous to humans, livestock, and wildlife. • Seeds from noxious weeds are spread by foot and vehicular traffic along our roadways and through our public lands. • Many property owners unknowingly have these non-native, noxious weeds growing in their yards and fields, which aggra vates the situation. • Sometimes this damage cannot be undone except by sustained effort over decades.


(Onopordum acanthium) is a biennial that grows up to 12 feet tall. Stems

have broad, spiny wings. Leaves are large, spiny, and covered with fine dense hair, giving a grayish appearance. Upper leaves are alternated, coarsely lobed; basal leaves may be up to 2 feet long and 1 foot wide. Flower heads are numerous, 1 to 2 inches in diameter, bracts spine -tipped. Flowers are violet to reddish. Fruits are about 3/16 inch long, tipped with slender bristles. An aggressive plant best controlled in the rosette stage.

Need help identifying noxious weeds? Please visit any our noxious weed displays for complimentary noxious weed id material. • Deschutes County , 1300 NW Wall St. • Deschutes County Road Department, 61150 SE 27th St. • City of Bend, City Hall, 710 NW Wall St.

Additional Help:

• Site visits are available for property owners. • Educational presentations can be made to your group or neighborhood. • The Deschutes County Weed Wagon boasts a ton of helpful information, id material, and educational videos; it is available for larger events. • The Deschutes County Weed Advisory Board meets monthly and welcomes your participation and involvement. • Oregon State weed laws provide governing agencies the authority for enforcement and compliance. In Deschutes County, fines for failure to control noxious weeds can reach up to $2000 per day, in Bend fines can reach up to $750 per day. • Deschutes County offers technical advice and may have financial assistance for landowners with noxious. weeds

For more information: In Deschutes County, visit or contact Ed Keith at 541-322-7117 or for more information. . In Bend, visit or contact Julie Craig at 541-388-5527 or for more information

RUSSIAN THISTLE (Salsola iberica) is a rounded, bushy, much branched annual, 1/2 to 3

feet tall, reproducing by seed. Stems are usually red or purple striped. Leaves are alternate; the first are long, string-like and soft, with later leaves short, scale-like and tipped with a stiff spine. Seeds are spread as mature plants break off at ground level and are scattered by the wind as tumbleweeds. Seedling plants are long and fleshly; herbicide applications should be made at this growth stage.

DALMATION TOADFLAX (Linaria dalmatica) is a perennial, up to 3 feet tall, reproducing by seed

and underground root stalks which makes this plant extremely difficult to control. Leaves are waxy and clasp the stem.

Dalmatian Toadflax,

What To Know Before You Pull

Dalmatian toadflax stem weevil, Mecinus janthiniformis (formerly known as Mecinus janthinus): This insect is having a profound impact on Dalmatian toadflax infestations. Adults feed on the foliage and flowers while larvae mine out the stem. Plants are often stunted and tops of the plant are riddled with holes caused by adult feeding. This insect flies well and seeks out new toadflax patches. Because the insects’s only source of food is Dalmatian toadflax, as the density of the weed decreases, the insect’s population also decreases, a classic predator-prey relationship.

SPOTTED KNAPWEED (Centaurea maculosa) is biennial or usually short- lived perennial with

a stout taproot. It can have one or more stems, branches 1 to 3 feet tall. The flowers are pinkish-purple. Bracts under the flowers have dark spots tipped with fringe. Leaves of the mature plant are finely divided.

PUNCTUREVINE (Goat Head) (Tribulus terrestris) is an annual that blooms

July to October, grows prostrate to the ground from a taproot and forms dense mats 4 feet across. The plant produces numerous stems some growing up to six feet long. Leaves are opposite, hairy, divided into 4 to 8 pairs of leaflets each about 1/2 inches long. Flowers are small, yellow. Fruits is woody bur that consists of 5 sections, which, at maturity, break into tack-like structures with sharp rigid spines. Each section contains 2 to 4 seeds. A single plant can produce around 400 fruit each containing two or three seeds.


(Verbascum thapsis) is a biennial that produces a large, thick rosette of

fuzzy leaves the first year and a single, stout, erect stem, 2 to 6 feet tall, the second year. The leaves are alternate, overlapping one another, light green, densely woolly. Flowers are sissile, borne in long terminal spikes, sulfur yellow, 5 lobed, and more than an inch in diameter. Because of the large number of seeds produced by each plant, it is difficult to control.

Please leave dalmatian toadflax undisturbed if you suspect weevils are present. The plants will appear to have boring on stem and may display some damage.

Let’s Pull Together is a multi-county noxious weed eradication event consisting of partnerships

and incredible volunteers all joining together for good times and clean country (city) living. Helping control noxious weeds is something every weekend gardener - and concerned citizen - can do to become involved. Learn how you can help protect our native Oregon ecosystem.

You’ve Got Love – and Music Too

By Isaac Biehl

Lonely opposites attract in “She Loves Me”


ichard Choate’s vision was mostly achieved, he says, once a cadre of fine players was cast for “She Loves Me,” a romantic, musical comedy opening this weekend at the Cascades Theater. When a director finds a winning cast, Choate says, only a small part of the challenge remains. “If you’ve cast a play correctly, you only have 10 to 15 percent effort to put back into it,” he says. “These are fine actors, and they are all incredible singers.” The 1998 film, “You’ve Got Mail,” with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan is similarly rooted in the original, 1937 play, “Parfumerie” by Miklós Lá szló , in which two lonely, incompatible souls seek love through anonymous dating platforms. The musical was written by Joe Masteroff, with its first performance in 1963. “The musical is a complete lift from the original play,” Choate says, with the addition of an orchestral score. In it, the two lonely hearts eventually arrange to meet their mystery matches—coincidentally, at the same upscale cafe. “The music is delightful,” Choate says. “And I lucked out,” he says of the able cast. “I have probably the best voices in Central Oregon—not only the leads, but the chorus as well.” The sets and props are elaborate, he says. One scene change in particular requires a great deal of time to execute, so at a rehearsal Monday, the gang was still working on the timing. “We have to be creative,” Choate says. The switch, from the perfume shop setting to the Cafe

Imperial where the two lonely hearts finally meet, happens between scenes, but not between acts—so they don’t have the luxury of a timely intermission. That’s where the creativity has to happen. “That one scene change needs to be entertainment,” Choate hints. “The look is wonderful,” Choate adds. “Maraczek’s Parfumerie has branded products. You’ll see labels on jars, tubes of cold cream, all Maraczek. Mona Lisa Cold Cream. The people who have done the props and set dressing have all done an exceptional job of making this look like the real deal.” Choate can’t seem to say enough about the exceptional cast. “We had a lot of women audition. They were all so


good, I was hopeful some of them would be willing to help out with the ensemble parts. And they all did,” he smiles. “They all did, every one of them. They wanted to be in something they knew was going to be fun and worthwhile.” “She Loves Me” is a feel-good story with a subtle thread of mystery and a bit of underlying tragedy, promising to give audiences something to talk about.

Employee Art Shines at Deschutes Brewery An eclectic art show that highlights pub employees


une is anniversary month at Deschutes Brewery. To honor that, they’re showcasing the creative talent of 23 of their pub employees in a group art show. The eclectic showcase is hanging throughout the month of June. Sarah Cook, a server at the pub for 11 years, took over managing the art that hangs in the pub for First Friday a few years ago. Cook, who dabbles in photography, doesn’t consider herself an artist, but took over the curation of the space simply out of a love for art. Cook regularly seeks out artists to feature, and

employees would often approach her to ask about featuring their work. This resulted in two to three shows a year featuring employees’ work. Cook realized she could open up the space to more employees and asked if anyone was interested in doing a

group show. The response was overwhelming. Cook quickly realized the show would have to be limited to pub employees, due to space—but also that this had potential for becoming an annual event celebrating the culture of Deschutes Brewery.

“The most inspirational thing is how excited (the employees) are about it,” says Cook. “They are embracing each other and it has brought a great vibe in the place.” The show features art in mediums including sculpture, painting, embroidery, beading, mixed media and even some crocheted monster dolls. Being able to see the work of fellow employees has been exciting for the work environment, Cook explained, and even brought about some surprises. “Nobody knew one of our head cooks crochets dolls! It was really special for guys to see the talent that maybe people weren’t showing,” shares Cook. “I am really proud of our people for being creative.” Deschutes Brewery Employee Art Show

Mexican restauranteurs celebrate one year at their new location


By Nancy Patterson @eatdrinkbend Nancy Patterson

Bend Ranks High on Beer List… Surprise!

Bend ranks number three on a list of the U.S. cities with the most craft breweries per capita. According to data from more than 500 cities, analyzed by C+R Research, Portland, Maine tops the list for this year, with 18 breweries per 50,000 people. Bend, according to the study, ranked third for having 16 breweries per 50,000 residents— just shy of Asheville, N.C.’s 17 breweries per capita, which put it second on the list. The study also ranked the most popular brewery in each city, based on search volume. Bend’s most-searched brewery? Wait for it… Deschutes Brewery. Surprise! Also on the list, at number nine, is Portland, Ore., with nine breweries for every 50,000 people. See the list at blog/which-cities-have-most-craft-breweries. Enchiladas Rancheras offer more heat than traditional enchilada sauce.

family’s heritage in Guadalajara, Mexico. “My uncle has flown out here many times to paint these murals on the walls,” Anaya explains, “and we transferred them here from the Twin Knolls location.” That’s right: the family cut the sheet rock from the old building in order to preserve the old detailed paintings and murals. “El Caporal,” which translates to “the Foreman,” pays tribute to Carlos’ father, who’s been managing a large ranch for most of his life. “We wanted to bring as much of ‘the ranch’ to our restaurant as possible. That’s why you’ll notice the horses carved into the booths and the leather-backed seats designed in Mexico,” Luz gushes. In terms of duties, Carlos plays a bigger role in the kitchen while Luz manages most of the business side. The couple’s Nancy Patterson

three children, ages 16, 18 and 20, are involved in the family business, working part-time during school—but Luz reiterates that their first priority is school. “It’s important they learn the business side of the restaurant for when they join us full-time, but that’s 10 years down the road,” she said. While her husband facilitates the back-of-house and recipes, most of which are generations old, Luz shares that her passion also lies within the bar. “I love creating new margaritas. If you see me on my phone, I’m probably looking up new cocktails,” she says, while showing me a video of ‘150 Margarita Recipes’ on YouTube. As we go over their extensive menu, she points out many of the dishes that were influenced by Carlos and his family. “It’s not just a taqueria, it’s a family restaurant. People don’t always know the difference.” Enchiladas rancheras, made with an authentic Mexican red sauce, is an in-demand item (and my personal favorite). Still, don’t ask them which dishes are the most popular. “Everyone who comes in has their favorite, but there isn’t one specific dish that’s most ordered.” Luz did share her plate of choice: the enchiladas chipotles, corn tortillas filled with chicken and topped with a creamy chipotle sauce. Nancy runs Eat Drink Bend, which features cocktails and plates from local eateries, and scouts restaurants, breweries and wineries to share stories from locally-owned Central Oregon establishments.

Monkless Opening Restaurant on the River

Monkless Belgian Ales will soon have a second home in a building off Industrial Way in Bend. The site, which features a recently expanded deck overlooking the Deschutes River, most recently housed Craft Kitchen & Brewery. The Monkless team announced its lease signing on its Facebook page May 31. The new Brasserie by Monkless will serve traditional European cuisine along with its Belgian-style ales, in what co-owner Robin Clement calls “highly curated food and beer pairings.” Monkless will continue to brew its beer at its production facility and serve beers at its taproom on High Desert Lane, though Clement says they’ll likely reduce their hours at that location when the Brasserie opens. Clement hopes to have the new space open by Sept. 1—though she says, “that’s probably a little optimistic.”

The restaurant re-opened April 9. Terrebonne Depot

rominently located on the corner on 27th Street near the Hwy 20 intersection sits a newly built, colorful building. The meticulously designed space is home to El Caporal Family Mexican Restaurant—designed by owner and architect, Luz Delia Anaya. Luz and her husband, Carlos, have owned the family-operated restaurant for nearly 22 years. El Caporal premiered in the Twin Knolls Retail Center in 1997, shortly after the couple moved to Bend from Seattle. “There wasn’t even a Costco when we opened up here. It was so quiet,” Anaya reminisces. Quiet is no longer a term that she would use to describe the area, or even the restaurant. For months, Anaya had her eye on a vacant property across the street from their Twin Knolls location. “The owner wanted too much for it, but as an architect, I said, ‘Well, let’s make him an offer and see what happens,’ and he accepted.” Anaya had visions of a space with large rooms for a bar, dining area and better-functioning kitchen. “We couldn’t host larger parties at the old location; there just wasn’t enough room to walk around,” she notes. The new space is open-concept, with room for happy hour-goers and families alike. But the recent move is not the first of their expansive ventures. They opened a second location in Sunriver in 2010 followed by a third restaurant in Tumalo a few years later. Unfortunately, they were forced to terminate their lease in Tumalo due to sewage and water restrictions shortly after its grand opening. The new Bend location features an array of brightly colored walls, murals and adornments that pay homage to the

A DOG’S JOURNEY: Don’t get it twisted: This movie doesn’t just look like a rip-off of “A Dog’s Purpose,” it’s actually the sequel. The first one kind of felt like an excuse to make audiences cry over scene after scene of a nice dog dying and getting reincarnated, so I’mma take a pass. This one’s for the kids whose parents won’t let them see “John WIck.” Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, ALADDIN: With Guy Ritchie in the director’s chair, here’s hoping he can add some of that “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” magic to a remake already lacking the brilliance of Robin Williams. Will Smith might be a good choice for the genie, but the special effects look downright ridiculous. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema AMAZING GRACE: A documentary focused on

Aretha Franklin’s recording of the album “Amazing Grace” at the New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts. She’s a national treasure, so this should be an unmissable documentary. Tin Pan Theater

AVENGERS: ENDGAME: After 11 years and 22 movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we’ve come to know it reaches its end. With the amount of hype leveled toward this movie, it’s kind of astounding that the film not only sticks the landing but manages to be an emotional powerhouse for anyone invested in this story. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

BOOKSMART: Easily one of the funniest movies

MA: Octavia Spencer plays a seemingly friendly

woman who invites a group of teenagers to come party in her basement, but there’s something dark and weird behind her lonely demeanor. Spencer finally gets a starring role she can sink her teeth into in a movie that looks like it might live up to her standards as an actress. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

ROCKETMAN: From the guy who directed half of “Bohemian Rhapsody” after that director got fired for being an even creepier version of Kevin Spacey, comes the story of Elton John done up like an old school movie musical.

There’s a lot of really cool monster stuff in this new “Godzilla,” which is a direct sequel to 2014’s “Godzilla” and 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island,” but none of it adds up to a satisfying whole. Really, this movie only exists to set up next year’s “Godzilla vs. Kong” and, because I’m a man-child, I’m much more excited for that than I should be. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema


LONG SHOT: While on the surface this looks like another “Seth Rogan Dates Someone Prettier Than Him” movie, director Jonathan Levine (“The Wackness”) is a filmmaker who usually avoids the genre’s cliches. Plus, Charlize Theron is an inter-national treasure. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX,

Now SCREEN A-Ska-Calypse Local filmmaker creates a documentary about the ska music genre By Jared Rasic most misunderstood genres. It’s often ridiculed, and rarely appreciated for what it really is. The main thing that people don’t understand is the political importance of ska. I think that due to the success of some of the more ‘silly’ ska bands like Reel Big Fish, people think of ska as a joke, or don’t take it seriously—but originally it had a strong political message of unity and inclusiveness, which is a really important message for the world these days.” Being that I always miss out on things when they’re at their best, I had no idea that ska music was born in the late 1950s and was a precursor to reggae music. Until I saw “Pick it Up!” I assumed ska music was just another way that white America co-opted black culture to make money, but that really had nothing to do with it. The original ska groups such as The Skatalites and early Jimmy Cliff completely passed me by, as did most of the 2 Tone wave that started in the late ’70s in England.

age of 15 that I discovered Third Wave ska music from a little movie I like to call “Clueless.” Shot around the globe and featuring interviews with dozens of the most influential ska musicians of all time, “Pick It Up!” is actually very similar to listening to really good ska: It feels effortless. The doc, released in late April, is incredibly fast paced and light, while managing to capture what makes ska important to the people who not only came up in the scene, but those whose lives were changed by the genre’s inclusiveness and spirit. Narrated by the legendary Tim Armstrong from Rancid, “Pick it Up!” Is for anyone who ever truly found their tribe at a rock show. “Pick it Up!” is already making waves, even before its debut in Bend. “We are taking the movie to several festivals, and doing screenings like the one in Bend all over the world,” says Morden. “We just had our Australian and Japanese premieres that were both huge successes, and at our first festival down in Newport

Beach we took home the Audience award for best music film. We are working on distribution right now and are hoping to have it available worldwide on digital and Blu-ray later this year.” The film isn’t just a movie for Morden, but something much more personal. “This movie was a labor of love, and in a lot of ways, it’s an autobiography as told by some of my all-time musical heroes,” says Morden. “I definitely put a lot of my own story into the film and when I get to see it in a theater with an audience and I see people laughing or even crying, it really feels like I’m making a connection to people in a whole new way that to me embodies the power of documentary film.” “Pick it Up! - Ska in the ’90’s” Pacific Northwest Premiere

s I sat down to watch local filmmaker Taylor Morden’s ska documentary, “Pick it Up!,” I realized I knew nothing about the genre—other than the fact I liked it a lot in middle/high school for about five minutes. I would have liked it longer, but I was young and fickle (but mostly because I discovered hip-hop music). Morden, however, had his roots in ska music almost from the beginning. “I’ve played trumpet for most of my life (since second grade) and when I was introduced to ska music in the ‘90s it was a life-changing moment. I discovered a type of music that made my dorky school band instrument cool!,” Morden said. “Since then I have played in ska bands off and on for the past 20 years or so, and it has taken me around the world, and I’ve met so many amazing people through ska music, I couldn’t imagine my life without it.” Morden, who’s also directing the upcoming local doc, “The Last Blockbuster,” clarifies the briefness of the genre’s popularity: “Ska is one of the

Running for the Medals

The tale of a self-described “medal junkie” By Caitlin Richmond Courtesy Jen Padilla

Tough Mudder, and some biking events, although she considers those “rides” and not specifically races. Padilla relocated from Las Vegas almost two years ago. Since moving to Bend, she’s had to adjust her expectations about competition and times due to the plethora of professional and semi-pro athletes in Bend. “I did the PPP (Pole Pedal Paddle) last week with some friends and I thought we had good times, but our team got 10th out of 12 in our age group,” she says. “It’s definitely more competitive here. I have a shirt that I wear when I run sometimes and it has a picture of a turtle on it and says ‘I am running,’ and that’s totally me.” Although Padilla has found herself in the slower half of many of the races she’s done, she still appreciates being surrounded by athletes in Bend, even if some of them are 30 years older, and

“It’s impressive (and a little humbling) to see a 70-year-old beat you at a half Ironman, or to see a kid passing you when you’re biking up the McKenzie Highway.” —JEN PADILLA ma Society. It was a particularly memorable first race, because it was right after 9/11 and Padilla, who lived in Las Vegas at the time, didn’t know if she would be able to fly to Portland, Oregon, for the race. After that, she was a volunteer coach for three years as she tried out different sports. These days, Padilla competes in triathlons, running races, obstacle courses like Spartans and

some 30 years younger. “It’s impressive (and a little humbling) to see a 70-year-old beat you at a half Ironman, or to see a kid passing you when you’re biking up the McKenzie Highway,” she says. Instead of comparing herself to other competitors, Padilla competes against herself and enjoys the experience of being on different courses.

Only a year out from a torn ACL and MCL, Jen Padilla is running to make up for lost time.

Training takes up a large chunk of Padilla’s free time, but she considers training and racing a hobby, so motivating herself to get out there and run, bike, swim or strength train is usually not too much of an issue. Padilla has also gotten involved with several running groups, so some training time doubles as socializing time. Padilla admits she spends a good chunk of money on entry fees, (she said she spent around $2,000 for all her races this year) but feels like the experience of participating in the races, combined with the motivation it gives her, makes it worthwhile. If you’re wondering how Padilla manages to do all these races and work full time for Bend Park and Recreation District (disclosure: I also work there), and also have a social life and take care of errands, you’re not alone.



“I’m very efficient with my time, I have some flexibility with my job, and everything here in Bend is in such close proximity that getting around doesn’t take forever,” she explains. “Also, I don’t sleep much.” She said the location of her office, along the Deschutes River, also makes training during the workday easier. Training season never really ends for Padilla, and once she’s done with her races this year, she has her sights aimed for something bigger and more challenging than anything she’s done before: a full Ironman Triathlon. She has done half Ironmans and sprint triathlons, but Ironman Barcelona in October 2020 will be her biggest race yet. “I’ll definitely tone down the racing when I get older, but I’m going to keep competing for as long as I can,’ she says. “Racing keeps me young!”

ome people collect plants. Some collect makeup; others, gear. Jen Padilla collects something that takes a little more effort to get: race medals. “I’m a medal junkie!” she exclaims. “I do so many races because I like racing, but also because it gives me a purpose and something to train for. But I also really like the medals.” This year, Padilla is competing in a whopping 20 races, most of which will happen by mid fall. Padilla doesn’t normally enter so many races, but due to an injury last year, she deferred several races to this year. If you already thought doing 20 races in a year was a little crazy, imagine doing 20 races in less than 12 months, only a year after your tore you ACL and MCL.

Baby Eagle Rescued By Jim Anderson

he only golden eagle cam operating in the U.S., located just north of Sisters, has been transmitting some pretty exciting footage over the last few weeks. Viewers have been witnessing what appears to be a very cruel event in the life and times of golden eagles: the starvation of one of the young. Last Monday, the younger and weaker of two eaglets fell out of its cliff nest to the banks of Whychus Creek below. The “good news” is that it is now in the care of Sisters raptor rehabber Gary Landers. Over the many years I have been watching, banding and trying to learn more about golden eagles, that business of young being forced out of/or falling out of nests has been a mystery. It wasn’t until I had the opportunity of seeing it take place that I realized it is a common practice. It’s living proof of what Charles Darwin called, “survival of the fittest,” begining when the eagles hatch out two eggs during times of scarce prey. The number of eggs produced by the female is normally controlled by food consumed in winter. When/if the female finds plentiful food, i.e. road-killed deer and elk, or animals that fall victim to a harsh winter, she’ll develop as many as three oocytes, the primitive start of an egg, which, when fertilized, will then become a zygote. But when food is scarce—as it is this year, with the eagle’s normal prey, jackrabbits—the parents favor the bigger, more aggressive chick. During early spring, when eggs hatch, baby eagles become about the size of footballs early in their life and stand out in the nest like big, white chickens. I could easily spot them from the air when doing my annual surveys from a Piper Cub. The first time I spotted a baby

dead below the nest I wondered what was going on, thinking it was the result of someone getting too close to the nest and causing the death of the chick. But as I saw this phenomenon more during future flights, even though it was rare, I became more and more curious. Not seeing any evidence of nest disturbance, I couldn’t understand why one of the young was dead. Then one year, while observing a nest on Powell Butte that a young man in the area was also watching, we combined our notes, and knowing jackrabbits were a very low number, assumed it was normal behavior to starve one nestling or push it out of the nest during shortages of prey. Concerned viewers left hundreds of remarks on the ECAS Eagle Cam website, wanting someone to step in and remove the starving youngster. Those caring for golden eagles knew what was taking place was normal behavior, and that man had nothing to do with it; therefore, man had no business stepping in. This time, however, things are different. Man, out of compassion, has rescued the fallen nestling, and the rehabber will keep it just long enough to get it back in good fighting shape and then return it to the nest. Hopefully, it will make it to the fledging stage, then be capable of catching its own prey. I once spent half a day watching an adult female in the process of teaching her youngster how to catch a wild turkey. I happened upon the scene when I heard the turkey gobbling loudly each time the eaglet made a pass at it. The big bird would run for cover, shouting for help, but it was all in vain when mom finally slammed into it, probably saying to her nestling, “See! This is how it’s done!”

Jim Hammond


Gary Landers takes rescued eaglet Whychus to his rehab facilities.

It wasn’t easy for Jim Hammond, the webcam master, along with Greg Moring, to retrieve the fallen eaglet. Hammond described it like this: “I looked for Whychus (the name viewers and camera crew gave the baby eagle) down the canyon wall from the nest but didn’t see him. I was heading down to see if there was a better view lower on the south side of the canyon when Greg, who had just come home from work, said he saw the eaglet.” Hammond then trudged back up the hill. “Sure enough, at a place where I had seen some white but didn’t think it was Whychus, there was even more black and white and it moved. Greg and I hiked down to the creek but the current was too fast and deep for us to wade across. We went back up to where we had cell coverage, called Jim Anderson at his home and Brad Chalfant at the Deschutes Land Trust for directions on how to get to the bird.”

I gave Hammond the number for raptor rehabber Gary Landers. Then, Hammond says, “Greg and I headed over to the DLT property, following Brad’s directions. After hiking to the location on the other side of the creek we spotted Whychus, picked him up, wrapped him in a towel, placed him in a sack and headed back to Leslie Lawrence’ place (where the camera is located).” Landers pulled up shortly and took Whychus for rehab. “He’s not optimistic about Whychus’ survival but there didn’t appear to be any broken bones,” Hammond said. “It is likely that the best result will be that Whychus will be kept in rehab and given the opportunity to put on weight and strength, and then reintroduced back into the nest in a week or so.” Keep watching the ECAS camera at for future events.

Central Oregon’s Housing Crisis

REAL ESTATE LISTINGS FOR SALE Price Reduced! Rare Downtown Bend near Bond St

Innovative solutions on the rise

underway right now. The night was hosted by Bend Chamber CEO Katy Brooks and City of Bend Economic Development Director Carolyn Eagan, and featured four panel members. Speaker Stan Amy is the Director of North Star Civic Foundation, which focuses on concrete projects that can articulate solutions at the scale of the problems communities face. Their focus points included a New Deal in Housing and building tenant wealth, exploring ways to increase asset building through homeownership. Speaker Michael Parkhurst is the program officer for the housing opportunities team at Meyer Memorial Trust, who offered details on how his organization helps Oregonians gain access to safe, stable and affordable housing. Speaker Patrick Quinton is the co-founder and CEO of Dweller, a private developer of prefab accessory dwelling units in Portland. Dweller builds and installs ADUs in a low cost, efficient manner to allow homeowners to benefit from this source of extra income—also providing desperately needed housing. Speaker Geoff Harris, regional director at Hayden Homes, discussed Hayden Homes’ Simplicity cottage-style homes, a smaller, more economical home option and also their Wise Size homes, with floor plans from 400 to about 1,200 square feet. All four speakers were tackling the housing crisis from various angles, but they’re all working in an effort to provide tangible solutions—which was a refreshing change from just discussing the problem.

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that housing prices continue to rise. In April we saw record highs set for a single-family home in Bend and Redmond, with the rest of the high desert following closely behind. This is great for current homeowners and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deterring the crowds from seeking out Central Oregon as their permanent destination. Most of us have moved here from somewhere else, so we get it, right? Who can pass up the pristine surroundings, outdoor adventure within daily reach and friendly, flourishing communities? We moved here over 20 years ago and have watched the open fields and old buildings transform into an urban landscape. Some of the change has been well received, while some isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so welcome. One shift thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been difficult to overcome is the cost-of-living index, which has skyrocketed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relatively easy to move here and buy a home if you come with money and can use that wealth to meet your Bend lifestyle goals. But why is it that for the bulk of the populationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the necessary workforce and hard-working wage earnersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;homeownership is out of reach? We believe everyone should be able to build equity and use their wealth as a tool to obtain their goalsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and others think so, too. Every month the Bend Chamber of Commerce holds its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brewingâ&#x20AC;? event, highlighting community topics. We had the pleasure of attending Mayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s session titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Real-Time Solutions for the Housing Crisis.â&#x20AC;?

I spent years on and off drugs and alcohol, but I’ve been sober for six years. I’m just not the same self-centered immature brat I was. Last week, I reached out to my best friend’s brother to apologize for things I did about seven years ago. He still hasn’t responded to my text (requesting time to talk to make amends). He told my friend he was having a hard time believing I’m any different. But I am, and I want to prove to him I have changed. How can I do that? — Sincere

the adult alternative

He’s seen you swear off drugs and alcohol before—typically for several hours on a Tuesday. This view he has of you is likely to have some serious staying power. That’s because our brain is big on automatic processes—forming and storing what I call “thinkpacks” so we don’t have to put cognitive energy into things we’ve already figured out. For example, say you do something for the first time, like opening a weird latch on a cupboard. Each time you do it again, the more automatic—that is, the more unthinking—opening it becomes. Believing works similarly. Once we form a belief, we tend to just go with it— automatically. Questioning a belief, on the other hand, takes mental effort: yanking out our reasoning ability and forcing it to do a bunch of cognitive chores. Not surprisingly, research by social psychologist Lee Ross, among others, finds that we’re prone to taking the mentally easy way out, succumbing to “confirmation bias”: clinging to what we already believe and ignoring info that says, “Hey, there just might be a new and improved truth in town.” There’s another problem: Our ego is bound up in our clinging to our beliefs -- that is, believing that we were right all along. And though it sounds like you’ve changed your value system— which probably bodes well for your staying sober—if he goes with the idea that you’re on the wagon for good, he risks being proved wrong. The error that you, like many people, make is in thinking, “I’ll just change somebody’s mind!” and it’ll happen pronto. However, consider your goal: apologizing. You can do that by writing a letter. A letter of apology takes an investment of effort that a phoned or texted apology does not—which makes it more likely to be seen as sincere.

And frankly, if you follow through with the steps for a meaningful apology—detailing how you wronged him, expressing remorse, and explaining the new values you are now living by—you lay the best foundation for him to...possibly...someday...believe that you truly have changed. Sure, it’s possible you’ll black out again, but maybe just if somebody clocks you for going overboard with the sobervangelizing. It won’t be like that time when you were drunk and handcuffed and yelling, “Occifers, I’ll have you know that my nickname in middle school was Houdini!” Amy Alkon

A Body At Rust

I’ve been married to a wonderful woman for two years. We have a 2-yearold child. Unfortunately, we stopped having sex when she got pregnant and haven’t started again since. She loves me, but she just doesn’t want sex like she used to. (And no, I’m not some sexist dude leaving all the baby care to her.) How can we jump-start our sex life? — Famished “Being and Nothingness” is 722 pages of stylishly depressing existentialism by Jean-Paul Sartre; ideally, it does not also describe what goes on in bed between you and your wife. Chances are your wife’s libido didn’t get broken in the delivery room or carried off by a raccoon. In women, desire seems to work differently than how it does in men, according to sex researcher Rosemary Basson, M.D. Once women are comfortably ensconced in a relationship, Basson finds that they no longer have the “spontaneous sexual hunger” they did in the early days of dating. Instead, their desire is “responsive,” meaning it is “triggerable” — simply by starting to fool around. Yes, miraculously, revving up your sex life will probably just take some makeout sessions. Tell your wife about Basson’s research and start scheduling regular romantic evenings. Make them early enough that nobody’s too tired and keep your expectations on medium. (You might not have full-blown sex on night one, but try to see whatever mwah-mwah makeout that goes on as an encouraging start.) When possible, drop the baby off at Grandma’s and have a sex weekend at a hotel. This may sound like a lot of effort and expense, but it sure beats the alternative—setting your penis out on the blanket next to the VHS player at your spring garage sale.

ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny

CANCER (June 21-July 22): “I think gentleness is one of the most disarmingly and captivatingly attractive qualities there are,” writes poet Nayyirah Waheed. That will be emphatically true about you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. Your poised, deeply felt gentleness will accord you as much power as other people might draw from ferocity and grandeur. Your gentleness will enable you to crumble obstacles and slip past barriers. It will energize you to capitalize on and dissipate chaos. It will win you leverage that you’ll be able to use for months.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Is the Loch Ness monster real? Is there a giant sea serpent that inhabits the waters of Loch Ness in Scotland? Tantalizing hints arise now and then, but no definitive evidence has ever emerged. In 1975, enterprising investigators got the idea to build a realistic-looking papier-mâché companion for Nessie and place it in Loch Ness. They hoped that this “honey trap” would draw the reclusive monster into more public view. Alas, the scheme went awry. (Lady Nessie got damaged when she ran into a jetty.) But it did have some merit. Is there an equivalent approach you might employ to generate more evidence and insight about one of your big mysteries, Leo? What strategies might you experiment with? The time is right to hatch a plan.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): When he was twenty years old, a German student named Max Planck decided he wanted to study physics. His professor at the University of Munich dissuaded him, telling Planck, “In this field, almost everything is already discovered, and all that remains is to fill a few unimportant holes.” Planck ignored the bad advice and ultimately went on to win a Nobel Prize in Physics for his role in formulating quantum theory. Most of us have had a similar experience: people who’ve tried to convince us to reject our highest calling and strongest dreams. In my view, the coming weeks will be a potent time for you to recover and heal from those deterrents and discouragements in your own past.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Not all, but many horoscope columns address your ego rather than your soul. They provide useful information for your surface self, but little help for your deep self. If you’ve read my oracles for a while, you know that I aspire to be in the latter category. In that light, you won’t be surprised when I say that the most important thing you can do in the coming weeks is to seek closer communion with your soul; to explore your core truths; to focus on delight, fulfillment, and spiritual meaning far more than on status, power, and wealth. As you attend to your playful work, meditate on this counsel from Capricorn author John O’Donohue: “The geography of your destiny is always clearer to the eye of your soul than to the intentions and needs of your surface mind.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Earlier in your life, you sometimes wrestled with dilemmas that didn’t deserve so much of your time and energy. They weren’t sufficiently essential to invoke the best use of your intelligence. But over the years, you have ripened in your ability to attract more useful and interesting problems. Almost imperceptibly, you have been growing smarter about recognizing which riddles are worth exploring and which are better left alone. Here’s the really good news: The questions and challenges you face now are among the finest you’ve ever had. You are being afforded prime opportunities to grow in wisdom and effectiveness.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Today Mumbai is a megacity with 12.5 million people on 233 square miles. But as late as the eighteenth century, it consisted of seven sparsely populated islands. Over many decades, reclamation projects turned them into a single land mass. I foresee you undertaking a metaphorically comparable project during the coming months. You could knit fragments together into a whole. You have the power to transform separate and dispersed influences into a single, coordinated influence. You could inspire unconnected things to unite in common cause.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Here’s Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano from The Book of Embraces: “In the River Plate basin we call the heart a ‘bobo,’ a fool. And not because it falls in love. We call it a fool because it works so hard.” I bring this to your attention, Scorpio, because I hope that in the coming weeks, your heart will indeed be a hard-working, wisely foolish bobo. The astrological omens suggest that you will learn what you need to learn and attract the experiences you need to attract if you do just that. Life is giving you a mandate to express daring and diligent actions in behalf of love.


ARIES (March 21-April 19): “I don’t think we were ever meant to hear the same song sung exactly the same way more than once in a lifetime,” says poet Linh Dinh. That’s an extreme statement that I can’t agree with. But I understand what he’s driving at. Repeating yourself can be debilitating, even deadening. That includes trying to draw inspiration from the same old sources that have worked for you in the past. In accordance with current astrological omens, I suggest you try to minimize exact repetition in the next two weeks: both in what you express and what you absorb. For further motivation, here’s William S. Burroughs: “Truth may appear only once; it may not be repeatable.” TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Peter Benchley wrote the bestselling book Jaws, which was later turned into a popular movie. It’s the story of a great white shark that stalks and kills people in a small beach town. Later in his life, the Taurus author was sorry for its influence, which helped legitimize human predation on sharks and led to steep drops in shark populations. To atone, Benchley became an aggressive advocate for shark conservation. If there’s any behavior in your own past that you regret, Taurus, the coming weeks will be a good time to follow Benchley’s lead: correct for your mistakes; make up for your ignorance; do good deeds to balance a time when you acted unconsciously.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Aquarian biochemist Gertrude Belle Elion shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1988. She was instrumental in devising new drugs to treat AIDS and herpes, as well as a medication to facilitate organ transplants. And yet she accomplished all this without ever earning a PhD or MD, a highly unusual feat. I suspect you may pull off a similar, if slightly less spectacular feat in the coming weeks: getting a reward or blessing despite a lack of formal credentials or official credibility.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): How many languages are you fluent it? One? Two? More? I’m sure you already know that gaining the ability to speak more than one tongue makes you smarter and more empathetic. It expands your capacity to express yourself vividly and gives you access to many interesting people who think differently from you. I mention this, Libra, because you’re in a phase of your cycle when learning a new language might be easier than usual, as is improving your mastery of a second or third language. If none of that’s feasible for you, I urge you to at least formulate an intention to speak your main language with greater candor and precision—and find other ways to expand your ability to express yourself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Some birds can fly for days without coming down to earth. Alpine swifts are the current record-holders, staying aloft for 200 consecutive days as they chase and feed on insects over West Africa. I propose we make the swift your soul ally for the next three weeks. May it help inspire you to take maximum advantage of the opportunities life will be offering you. You will have extraordinary power to soar over the maddening crowd, gaze at the big picture of your life, and enjoy exceptional amounts of freedom.

Social Equity in Cannabis By Josh Jardine

positive thing about the implementation of adult use cannabis programs in various states has been assurance that a portion of the cannabis tax/licensing revenue would be allocated for use in specific equity programs. Such programs are designed to address inequities for people of color—from the racist policies that placed the heaviest burden of the enforcement of the War on Drugs upon people and communities of color, to the lack of resources available to those groups to enter the regulated cannabis industry. Those inequalities are not a matter of opinion or liberal white guilt; it’s a fact that the disproportionate enforcement of cannabis laws fell heaviest upon the same people who have less access to the capital needed to establish themselves in an industry which had over $12 billion in global sales in 2018, is expected to hit nearly $17 billion this year, and could top $31 billion by 2020. But as it turns out, some programs are not exactly spending the money as it was intended, to support establishing stakeholder positions for people of color in cannabis. Portland Mercury News Editor Alex Zielinski has written an informative piece about the distribution of cannabis taxes in Portland, a must read. (Spoiler: Law enforcement took the majority of the money.) Yet Portland isn’t alone. The website Merry Jane recently summed up two programs struggling with similar well intentioned and underfunded goals. In Massachusetts, the state senate recently rejected a proposal by Sen. Sonia Chang-Díaz that would have provided zero-interest, cannabis-related business loans to “benefit small businesses, diverse owners and disenfranchised communities.” The program would have cost a remarkably reasonable $1 million of a state budget totaling $43 billion, and would have become self-sustaining with a portion of the projected cannabis tax revenue and other sources. Chang-Diaz pointed out that of all the 19 dispensary licenses issued, none had gone to any of the state’s numerous programs designed to support disenfranchised groups. Los Angeles has an annual budget of over $10 billion, and set aside a mere $3 million to fund its new social equity program for the cannabis industry. Per CannabisWire, that’s far short of

what’s needed to provide the technical support for what is expected to be some 1,000 industry applicants from minority communities. The very superheroine in name and deed, Cat Packer, the Department of Cannabis Regulation director, asked the L.A. City Council for an additional $2.25 million to fully fund the social equity program—a move that had widespread support from the mayor and council. L.A. officials also wanted more money for police and cannabis enforcement. In an effort to support and raise the tax revenue from cannabis sales, the mayor’s budget requested an additional $10 million strictly for police enforcement against unlicensed cannabis businesses. Capturing the lost revenue from illegal sales could dramatically grow the current projections of $40 million in L.A. from cannabis tax revenue and fees. Still, $10 million for weed cops? Like me, that seems high. Some cities and states are directing cannabis revenue toward programs which serve marginalized communities. Colorado has an impressive track record of funding education and programs to address homelessness with its canna-revenue. Last month, the city council in Clark County, Nevada—home to Las Vegas— unanimously allocated a total of $ 1.8 million in cannabis tax and fees to programs to end youth homelessness, and to house those with serious medical conditions. The cannabis industry has a wellknown diversity problem. One study estimated that only 17 percent of executive positions in the cannabis industry were held by minorities. A study in 2016 estimated that the number of cannabis dispensaries owned by African Americans was all of 1 percent. The consolidation and homogenization of Oregon’s cannabis industry is upon us, making it all the more important that we remain vigilant in supporting those numbers changing. There is a moral obligation that while the inevitable “rich white guys get richer” model will flourish, that it should be offset with adequate funding for programs which help level a vastly unlevel playing field. Be it cannabis arrest record expungement, incubation programs or no-interest loans and grants, social equity in cannabis should be undertaken now, to ensure everyone an option to participate.
