The Republican Walkout RULZ!!!




Caring for your pets 7 days a week / Urgent Care



ou guys, wasn’t this latest Republican walkout THE BEST? I mean, we’ve been waiting a long time to do away with that pesky thing we call democracy, haven’t we? We may routinely tell minorities in society that they should just buck up and assimilate… that they should just adhere to the melting-pot theory and lie down in the face of majority rule… but when it comes to an all-white Republican caucus in the Oregon Legislature, we obviously couldn’t continue to let them be beleaguered by things like compromise, by concessions that had been already afforded to their constituents, by voluntary emissions standards opt-ins for rural counties, or any of that other stuff! No way—they had to Get. Their. Way. Or else! Or else, by god, get off our lawns, because the rest of Oregon was going to pay! No, this time, we finally got the chance to flout that democracy crap and say what we’ve all been wanting to say: That when it comes down to it, the majority doesn’t rule, and we’ve never wanted it that way. When it comes down to it, we were all secretly hoping to get some of that nationally-tweeted, autocratic “Dear Leader” flavor over here in Ory-gun, by allowing the majority of the Oregon Legislative Assembly’s business to be conducted by executive order and emergency committee instead of by the greater legislative body. That’s what I’m talking about, baby! No more deliberations, no more quorums intended to ensure a majority is there to vote… no more dumb committee meetings where legislators can bring their concerns, and where the public can have the chance to speak their minds—all of that goes

out the window when you simply don’t show up to work. Isn’t it refreshing?! Vegas, baby! Heck, maybe this is going to cause those young, forward-thinking people who want to move to Oregon for its natural beauty and environmental advocacy to think twice about moving here in the first place. Good riddance— we don’t need your innovations, your research, your brain trust of any kind. On behalf of us “native Oregonians” (who possess not an ounce of indigenous blood), we say we don’t need you. Our way of life was fine before you came here and started postulating about “the planet,” trying to further your “worldview” that Oregon is indeed part of the world and thus has an environmental impact upon it. If it came down to it, we’d put a wall not just around Oregon’s borders, but around Oregon’s skies too—and of course, we’d get California to pay for it! Seeing as how walkouts have been super successful in the Legislature, how about this? Maybe we end voting too—since it’s clear that our votes, either for Democrat or Republican, in state legislative races don’t add up to a hill of beans. What’s the point, right? With voter apathy at an all-time high (or low?), we’re more than ready to let autocracy run wild. Oh, wait, though—we should probably keep voting around long enough to vote in the autocrat we’ve always wanted. The only problem is, no one has yet been able to devise a system that lets the candidate with fewer votes WIN AN ELECTION. Or have they? Editor’s note: This is satire, people. Satire!! The Republican walkout did not, in fact, rule.

GUEST OPINION Until recently, it looked as though a tax subsidy for wealthy investors would finally have its day of reckoning. Oregon House Bill 4010 sought to pare back and make more transparent the so-called “Opportunity Zones” tax break. But a walkout by Republican lawmakers over climate change legislation imploded the 2020 legislative session, burying HB 4010 along with other important bills. The untimely death of HB 4010 derailed what would have been the first real review of this dubious tax policy. “Opportunity Zones” is Oregon tax law, even though Oregon lawmakers never voted for it. “Opportunity Zones” arrived via the 2017 federal tax overhaul. This 400-plus tax bill sailed through Congress without a single hearing. Oregon got stuck replicating many tax breaks in the federal law, including “Opportunity Zones,” because the state automatically connects to parts of the federal tax code. Here is who won and lost from the premature death of HB 4010. Winner: the ultra-rich “Opportunity Zones” are tax cuts for capital gains income — the profits from selling stocks, real estate, and other such assets. To benefit, investors shift previously earned capital gains into “Opportunity Funds” that then invest in places designated as “Opportunity Zones.” This allows investors to shrink their tax bill on capital gains income. Capital gains is the income of the ultra-rich. The top one-tenth of 1 percent of Oregonians — the richest one out of every 1,000 Oregonians — together collect nearly the same amount of capital gains income as the bottom 99 percent of Oregonians. If “Opportunity Zones” appear made for the ultra-rich, it is because they are. They are the brainchild of Facebook billionaire Sean Parker, who used his deep pockets to lobby Congress for this tax subsidy.

Winner: lucky landowners and real estate developers While “Opportunity Zones” are supposed to help revitalize distressed areas, the big money likely will go to areas already booming, offering the potential of large profits. In Bend, “Opportunity Zones” envelop some of the city’s “most valuable real estate, stretching from the Deschutes River eastward to 27th Street, and from Reed Market Road north past Butler Market Road – essentially, the busiest corridors in the region,” a local commercial real estate firm explains. For owners of property within those boundaries and real estate developers, “Opportunity Zones” are a windfall. Loser: the vast majority of Oregonians The vast majority of Oregonians will never profit from “Opportunity Zones,” as they will never put a penny into an “Opportunity Fund.” Worse, “Opportunity Zones” will siphon off Oregon taxpayer dollars — revenue that otherwise support schools and other essential public services. How much revenue Oregon will lose to “Opportunity Zones” is hard to predict. The loss may be modest or massive. Either way, the vast majority of Oregonians lose from this tax subsidy for wealthy investors. Loser: communities at risk of displacement Not only is there no requirement that the investments benefit low-income residents, “Opportunity Zones” threaten to accelerate gentrification. That’s the process where wealthier residents move into a previously low-income neighborhood, pushing up rents and, eventually, pushing out long-term residents — often people of color. The final chapter on “Opportunity Zones” has yet to be written. While HB 4010 died prematurely, the problems with the tax subsidy are too obvious to ignore. The day of reckoning for “Opportunity Zones” may yet arrive in 2021. — Juan Carlos Ordóñez is the Communications Director for the Oregon Center for Public Policy (ocpp.org)

If everyone had access to health care, then we would need more doctors, nurses and facilities. Imagine how that would boost the economy! Thousands of living wage jobs just waiting to be filled! Medical schools and specialty programs bursting at the seams! People getting the care they need right away before it becomes deadly or 10x as costly to treat! People no

As the only developed nation without a proper health care system, we are embarrassingly behind the times. Insurance companies have been sucking the working people dry for too long. It is time for the books to close on their profiteering free-for-all. The people demand it. We will not stop fighting for it, regardless of the election results. —Kay Bee

In the 3/5 story “Coronavirus Comes to Oregon,” we stated that Bend- La Pine Schools are advising people to stay home when they have a fever over 105. It's 100.5 degrees, not 105. In the 2/26 story, “Room Tax Rift,” the article did not include other ways transient room tax is allocated, beyond the City’s General Fund. Four percent goes to police and fire and 31.2% goes to Visit Bend, the City’s destination marketing organization. It also stated that vacation rental owners must purchase "a yearly operating license" for $275. Licenses cost $275 the first year; $200 every year after. We regret the errors.

Disappointing Finish

Republican walkouts end the 2020 Oregon legislative session early. What now? WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / MARCH 12, 2020 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE


By Laurel Brauns


n the game of Oregon politics that was the short session this winter, no one wins. Not the Democrats, not the Republicans, not the people of Oregon. A week and a half ago, most House and Senate Republicans in Salem abandoned their jobs as lawmakers. This is the fifth time in 10 months Republicans have fled the Capitol, denying the Democrats the quorum they need to pass legislation. This time, Republicans protested SB 1530, a greenhouse gas reduction bill (they walked out on a form of this last year, too), revised since last session with more provisions for people who live in rural areas of Oregon. Rep. Jack Zika (R-Redmond) joined Republicans by leaving his post, but Rep. Cheri Helt (R-Bend) and Sen. Tim Knopp (R-Central Oregon) were the only two Republican state legislators to stay. The Oregon “short session” occurs on even years and is only five weeks long. House Speaker Tina Kotek (D-Portland) ended it abruptly Thursday afternoon. Earlier in the week she subpoenaed absent Republicans to the Capitol, but the missing members did not show up Thursday morning. Instead, Kotek received a letter from House Republican Leader Christine Drazan stating Republicans would come back for 12 hours on the last day of the session to pass some funding allocation bills. Kotek didn’t buy it. Neither did Gov. Kate Brown who issued a 14-page executive order Tuesday morning that details how the State will cap emmissions on the transportation, industrial and natural gas sectors. According to Oregon Public Broadcasting, Brown's order is “at once equal to and much broader” than SB 1530. It directs 18 state agencies and commissions to reduce

carbon emissions, and includes new standards for building and household appliances, as well as increased infrastructure for electric vehicles. Lawmakers approved $5 million in emergency funds on Monday to start making rules and regulations. Brown’s office has said in the past that an executive order would not be able to raise money for transitioning to a low-carbon economy because the government won’t be selling offsets. DEQ will release the final regulations June 30 and the order will go into effect in 2022. “A Caucus of One” Rep. Helt published a number of posts on her Facebook page expressing her disappointment over the partisan divide. “Important priorities for Bend—like housing, homeless funding, education and public safety—were casualties of partisan polarization which has not only gripped our nation, but now Oregon,” she wrote Friday. Helt told the Source Friday evening, as she drove home from Salem, that she was working on some amendments to the Corporate Activity Tax in hopes of having another legislative session in the coming months. (CAT, part of the Student Success Act, passed last year to fund education, and taxes business’ total sales over $1 million.) “It’s not over. We have to keep working and be ready; anything could happen,” she said. “I’m not a part of the Republican caucus right now. I’m a caucus of one.” Knopp told the Source he stayed in Salem to work on CAT, to oppose SB 1530 in person and continue to push for his legislation that would freeze property

taxes for low-income seniors. He said he also wanted to support other bills affecting Central Oregon including a [$13 million] bond for an OSU-Cascades Student Success Center, two additional judges for Deschutes County and funds [$250,000] for the Deschutes Water Basin. Zika told the Source that he believes that the cap and trade bill should be sent to voters. “I hear the argument from the majority party that big oil is going to put in a lot of money in oppositional campaigns,” he said. “But I don’t see why they would have any incentive to do that because there are no refineries here, you can’t frack, there’s no drilling off the coast. “Cap and trade is a regressive tax onto low-income families because these companies are going to close, lay people off,” he said. “Utility prices will go up.” Zika told the Source Monday that he believed Democrats were at fault because Republicans agreed to come back for 12 hours on the last day to vote on a list of funding priorities the Democrats chose. Zika said he received over 1,000 emails, of which 800 encouraged him to walk out. Bills Left on the Table Numerous bills and programs that affect Central Oregon were left unfinished as a result of the walkouts, including: -$4 million for a navigation center for unhoused people in the region

-$10s of millions for wildfire management and preparation -Millions for behavioral health services which would benefit Deschutes County Mental / Behavioral Health -Funds to help unaccompanied youth without homes Christopher Nichols, associate professor of history at Oregon State University, said the increasing frequency of the Republican walkouts in Oregon are a symbol of the nationalization of state politics. “This represents a nostalgic vision of Oregon which is not forward-looking, but instead represents the interests of rural communities, timber, trucking… basically a white version and vision of the state, which sustains itself on raw material extraction,” Nichols said. “What is fascinating is the contrast: solar and renewable energy, the tech industry and other things that inspire people to come to Oregon.” Knopp was the only one on the Senate floor in Salem on Friday. The rest of his caucus returned Sunday as promised, but didn’t pass anything. Helt attended a meeting of the Oregon Emergency Board on Monday to lobby for funds for unhoused unaccompanied youth. So what’s next? “Working together in a bipartisan way as I have done over the last several sessions to find consensus to bring Oregon together,” said Knopp.


Screening vs. Testing

Yes, testing labs are awaiting more kits. But locally, providers have what they need to screen patients for novel coronavirus



y now, the basic advice around preventing the spread of novel coronavirus has been widely distributed: Stay home if you’re sick, wash or sanitize your hands frequently, cover coughs and sneezes, and have your home emergency kit stocked. In an Oregon Public Health Division press briefing Monday, health officials also mentioned extra precautions, such as avoiding visiting relatives in nursing facilities and avoiding large gatherings. Testing capacity At the national level, confusion has abounded around the number of COVID-19 test kits available in various states. Oregon health officials said the Oregon State Public Health Laboratory, which began testing for novel coronavirus Feb. 28, had enough kits on hand to test 4,800 people as of Tuesday. Since last week, two private lab companies, Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp, have both come online as additional COVID-19 testing facilities, with more hospital labs gaining the capability to test soon. As testing capability increases, health officials expect more cases to emerge, OHA officials said Monday. Last week, officials at the White House announced that the federal government hoped to deliver enough additional test kits around the country to be able to test an additional 1 million people. They later said they wouldn’t meet that goal. The delay in producing more kits has been attributed to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s decision to design its own kits rather than following

World Health Organization guidelines, as ProPublica reported Feb. 28. Health providers screen. Labs test. “To be clear, St. Charles does not perform any tests,” wrote Lisa Goodman, public information officer for St. Charles Health System in an email to the Source. “We collect the samples and send them to the state’s public health lab for testing.” The “test kits” go to labs including Oregon’s state lab, where they’re used to test the specimens sent from providers around the state. As Goodman explained, “A nasopharyngeal collection kit is used to collect  secretions from the back of your nose and upper throat. After the sample is collected, it’s sent to a lab where it is tested for COVID-19. The diagnostic kits, or test kits, are developed by the CDC and provided to public health labs and some select international labs.” Goodman said the specimen kits St. Charles uses are not specific to novel coronavirus and can be used to detect any type of respiratory virus. So while labs may not yet have the supplies needed to test vast numbers of people in the event of a wider outbreak, local providers do have the tools they need to collect samples. Not everyone gets tested The current, relatively low testing capability has been alarming for some. Oregon has seen just 15 positive cases of COVID-19 and has tested over 200 people for novel coronavirus—but what if the number of people needing testing were to spike? “The Oregon Health Authority continues to stress that not everyone needs to be

Representatives from St. Charles Health System say they have the collection kits needed to collect samples—but people experiencing symptoms will be ruled out for the flu or other illnesses before they'll send a sample to a lab for COVID-19 testing.

Douglas counties. Washington County now has eight presumed positive cases. Three of the 15 sick people had engaged in international travel recently, according to the Oregon Health Authority. As of Monday, 52 people in Oregon were still awaiting COVID-19 test results, with 165 already testing negative. Gov. Kate Brown declared a state of emergency in Oregon March 8. The declaration gives “OHA more freedom and flexibility to take specific actions to contain the outbreak,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen. That includes preparing Oregon’s medical reserve corps to mobilize if needed, expending telemedicine to screen patients without exposing health workers to potentially infected people and “finalizing agreements with major hospital systems to expand locations where COVID-19 tests can be conducted safely.” At a press briefing March 2, officials from Deschutes County Public Health said they would alert the public of any presumed positive cases as quickly as possible. State health officials have not alerted the public about the locations of any of the people in Oregon still awaiting test results, however.

tested,” Goodman said. “It’s very important to note that an individual cannot just show up and request a test. Patients have to meet CDC’s clinical criteria for testing.” The CDC is advising medical providers to “use their best judgement” in deciding whether to test someone for novel coronavirus, saying they’re “strongly encouraged to test for other causes of respiratory illness, including infections such as influenza.” If someone tests negative for the flu and is showing symptoms of respiratory illness, the next step may be a screening for COVID-19. Drop-ins not welcome To minimize risk to others and to avoid overwhelming emergency departments, St. Charles and other health systems continue to encourage people to call ahead before showing up to be screened for respiratory illness. “If someone thinks they might need to and they don’t have a primary care doctor to consult with, calling the local health department is another good choice,” Goodman wrote. Oregon at 15 cases On Tuesday, the number of presumed positive cases in Oregon expanded to 15, including a new case involving a person being treated at the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center, along with two cases in Jackson County, one in Klamath County and one each in Marion and

Trailblazing: From Low-Cal to Big Gains Deschutes Brewery steps away from lighter beers, making a powerful & tasty hazy IPA in the process By Isaac Biehl




hen I first heard about Deschutes Brewery’s new beer, I almost couldn’t believe it. Bulk pHaze, a hazy double IPA, that’s heavy on the calories, carbs, ABV and made with protein malt—was it for real? Turns out, yes. Inspired by Lead Brewer Tanner Hulse, who decided to embrace being the “resident bro” amongst his coworkers, Hulse and company took something that stemmed from a joke of bulking up and turned it into something great. While Bulk pHaze is packed to the brim with ingredients that might make you think it’d be heavy to drink, it’s actually really smooth. The beer boasts awesome citrus flavors that any hazy IPA fan would enjoy. Made with over three pounds of milk sugar in each barrel, the sweetness created during the brewing process really shines through. For weight lifters looking to maintain a certain


Beer Issue We love beer. You do, too. Here are some things to read about it.

In the meantime, Bulk pHaze is a very calorie intake, the Bulk pHaze would actually make for tasty treat that could keep you (kin- limited release. If you want to try Bulk da, sort-of... it’s beer) on track. It just comes pHaze, head to the Deschutes tasting with a much higher ABV (8.2%) than your room on Simpson or the downtown pub to get it while it lasts. usual protein shake. Courtesy Deschutes Brewery As of late, Deschutes has been creating a variety of lowcal and low-carb beers like the WOWZA! or Da Shootz!, so it’s cool to see them work in the other direction for people who might want to pack more of those contents in their latenight beverage. Deschutes already held a release party where people could show off their strength on the bench press, and on Instagram it looked like 10 Barrel may have challenged them to a benchoff. We’ll see if that goes anywhere, and who knows— maybe protein beers will be the next trailblazing item in As this picture suggests, Bulk pHaze is an explosion of flavor and ingredients. the beer industry?

Pivoting to Seltzer The White Claw era inspires local brewmasters to bring on the bubbly By Cayla Clark


o you remember Zima? I don’t, as I was only 3 when Coors Brewing Company introduced the light, lemon-lime flavored alternative to beer. Considered a “premium malt beverage,” drinks like Zima, Mike’s Hard Lemonade and Smirnoff Ice had their day... and then their popularity plummeted. But why? It could be because they’re high-calorie, insanely high in sugar and will leave you with the kind of hangover that says, “A dozen frat boys taped two 40-ounce bottles of Mickey’s to my hands last night.” Enter hard seltzer. This adult beverage appeals to consumers for a variety of reasons. Lighter and lower in calories than beer, it’s a great alternative for those who are looking to cut back on heavier beverages, often while enjoying the convenience of a can. These are a few local options that let you go beyond White Claw. Modified Theory by Deschutes Brewery “Modified Theory is a tart and sparkling hard bevy,” Erin Rankin of Deschutes Brewery wrote in an email to the Source. “It is 5.5% ABV with no to low sugar (depending on the flavor), natural ingredients and no preservatives. Our goal was to create a versatile drinking experience that you can sip it from the can, drink on the rocks, or mix it with your favorite

spirit. We’ve created three bold flavors, including Tahitian Lime Agave, Northwest Berry Lavender and Tarocco Orange Vanilla.” Modified Theory is crafted to remove gluten. Veronica Vega, director of product development at Deschutes, noted the inspiration for the beverage came from a cocktail-consciousness. “We’ve been experimenting with beer cocktails at our pubs for a while,” she said. “We wanted to come up with some tart, fruity and interesting flavors that lend themselves to quick and easy cocktails. Versatility is an added bonus. We started experimenting about a year ago, and we currently have three more flavors in development.” Bandwagon by Immersion Brewing Family-owned and locally-loved Immersion— which took home Best Small Brewery at the Oregon Beer Awards this year—is hopping on the seltzer bandwagon, quite literally. “The trend really dates back to Zima,” said brewery co-owner Sean Lampe. “There’s been this huge revival in the past year, and it’s become pretty impossible to ignore it.” Lampe explained that he and his brewers began experimenting about a year ago, and it’s been quite a learning curve. “Some of the brewers are onboard, and others aren’t,” he noted. “Some see the rise of hard seltzer as an evil trend, a trend that we shouldn’t even indulge in. But, you know, it’s something new to try. We’ve been dabbling a lot with the fermentation process, and while there’s still lots of room for improvement, I can really see this product having legs.” The batch currently at the brewery is grapefruit flavored, and staff members only offer up the “secret menu” item when someone comes in looking for a beer alternative. “It appeals to the gluten-free demographic,” said Lampe.

Bella Krevitz

Try one of three hard seltzers flavors by AVID Cider, released last year.

Look for more options in the future—oh, and about that “secret menu” thing? Forget I said anything. Seven Peaks Hard Seltzer by AVID Cider Unlike many of its counterparts, AVID’s hard seltzer is derived from Northwest apples and sourced from the Cascade watershed. Tropical Smash, Raspberry Cosmo and Mandarin Greyhound round out the current flavor options. Dan McCoy, the owner of Seven Peaks, believes that boozy seltzer is much more than a temporary trend. “I believe seltzers will continue to have a place in the crowded alcohol market and some, like ours, have attributes that make them more than a fad,” he said. “Americans list health consciousness as a major priority in their lives. Thus, we focused on keeping our 12-ounce cans under 100 calories, coming in at 95 calories per can.” Modified Theory Release

A chat with Central Oregon’s own Boss Rambler, which took home the Best New Brewery award at the Oregon Beer Awards By Heidi Howard

Beer and BBQ at Boss Rambler


oss Rambler Beer Club did a cool thing, taking home the Best New Brewery award at the Oregon Beer Awards Feb. 18. The spot opened in April, bringing a brightness to the local beer scene. Instead of the typical industrial feel, the Beer Club looks like something straight out of a home magazine. With the white shiplap walls and pops of color, it evokes a feeling of being on vacation. Plus, the beer is fantastic; fresh and super drinkable. I chatted with Matt Molletta, one of the owners, about Boss Rambler’s success and more.

Drink This Here Drink like a (beer) geek By Heidi Howard


n honor of the Beer Issue, I’ve created my own curated list of what beers to drink when visiting some of Central Oregon’s breweries. I’ve selected beers that are available on the regular, so there’s no need for you to rush. Enjoy at your own pace! In other words, do not attempt to hit all of this up at once. It’s about the delicious taste of craft beer, not the experiences that lead to cautionary tales… Bevel Craft Beer: Black Ace – This is an award-winning Cascadian Dark Ale. It’s got the perfect balance of complexity and bitterness. Boneyard Beer: Diablo Rojo – You thought I was going to say RPM, didn’t you? Ha! Boneyard makes a mean red ale, that’s for sure. It’s smooth and lightly sweet. Yum. Boss Rambler: BRO? BRAH! – Hop forward and straight forward damn good IPA. It’s just the right amount of old school, with a sprinkle of sophistication. It smells fantastic, too. CRUX Fermentation Project: Bubble Wrap – A delicious hazy IPA that CRUX cans, so you can take it home with you. This beer is aromatic and smooth drinking.

Source Weekly: What do you think are the key factors in making you the best new brewery in Oregon? MM: I’d like to think the biggest factor is that we’re making some damn good beer! Aside from that, I think it’s because we’re having fun/ not taking ourselves too seriously and we came in with a fresh take on the whole brewery experience. We’ve got a fun vibe and unique space that people really dig, and we’re making exciting beers that people want to drink. SW: What challenges has Boss Rambler overcome to become such a success? MM: Beer supply. We were so busy this past summer that we couldn’t keep up and ran our taps pretty lean. We’re looking forward to hopefully being able to keep up this year and give the people what they want: more beer! SW: What is the thing you are most proud of for Boss Rambler? MM: There are so many things I’m proud of, I’m not sure there’s one that sticks out most… although, one thing I can say I’m really stoked on is the diversity of our customer demographic. I think our vibe and offerings has naturally resulted in a younger, forward-thinking crowd, which includes a lot of women and families, but we’re also attracting an older crowd who are excited about the “new wave” of beer. We’re breaking down barriers and the stigma that beer is just a “dude’s drink” which has created a really fun and inviting atmosphere at the Club.

SW: Were you surprised by your OBA win? MM: Absolutely. We weren’t expecting to win anything. If you were at the awards or watching live online, you saw firsthand that our crew wasn’t even together to accept the award. Joel (Scott) was in the restroom and I was in the balcony looking for the guys when the award was announced, which left Jacob (Bansmer) on the stage all alone to accept the award! SW: How did you celebrate your big win? MM: Naturally, many beers were had with the team and industry friends following the show… it was a bit of a party! A couple weeks later we had an official party at the Beer Club to celebrate with all of our customers and crew. It was a blast to drink beers with and acknowledge the folks who have helped us get to where we are. SW: What is next for Boss Rambler? MM: We’ve got a bunch of fun stuff on the horizon. We just brewed an IPA collab with our friends Ruse Brewing (the 2019 Best New Brewery) that will hit in a couple weeks. We’ve got another collab with our buddy Charlie at Allegory Brewing coming up, as well as our one-year anniversary party at the end of April that should be pretty epic.

Kobold Brewing: 3rd Street Cred – A really tasty red that is basically Central Oregon in a beer glass. It smells like the woods and tastes like heaven! Monkless Belgian Ales: Shepplekofeggan – You can just call it “Shep” when you order it. This is a “friendship” beer, and I thoroughly enjoyed it while visiting with my bestie! Silver Moon: Mango Daze – This mango pale ale has a moderate ABV at 6%. It is my go-to for sure. I absolutely love the flavor profile of this beer. It is tropical goodness. Spider City: Soleil Rubis – Slightly sour, and completely delicious. It’s beautiful to look at too, just like our Central Oregon sunrises, which the beer was named after. Sunriver Brewing: Cocoa Cow – If you love chocolate milk, drink this beer. It’s smooth and full of chocolate flavor. It is lighter than you would expect for a dark beer, so don’t be afraid of the dark! Three Creeks Brewing: Knotty Blonde – Because it’s a fun beer to order: “I’ll have a knotty blonde, please.” Heh heh. But seriously, this is a great go-to ale that won’t weigh you down, but still has plenty of flavor. Wild Ride: Nut Crusher – This is one of the best peanut butter beers I’ve had, hands down. It’s so good, I remember exactly where I was the first time I had it (but not what I did afterward… remember when I mentioned those cautionary tales??)

Get out there and drink some craft beer, people! It’s not going to drink itself! Cheers!

We're Here, We're Beer, Get Used To It

Long-standing local dive bars provide unpretentious settings in which to enjoy local craft brews By Cayla Clark


he definition of “dive bar” varies immensely depending on who you ask, though there are certain components of every classic dive that remain rather consistent. A 2010 issue of Playboy Magazine defined a dive bar as, “A church for downand-outers and those who romanticize them, a rare place where high and low rub elbows—bums and poets, thieves and slumming celebrities. It’s a place that wears its history proudly.” While you aren’t likely to find many “slumming celebrities” in long-standing local haunts, you’re likely to find an impressive—and affordable— selection of local and domestic brews. Cascade West Grub & Alehouse Resting somewhere between country bar and neighborhood dive, Cascade West first opened its doors in 1954. Known for its indoor fire pit and pool tables, the cozy, dimly-lit alehouse boasts 32 rotating taps and a decent menu. In fact, several locals have deemed Cascade West’s fried chicken the best in town. Half of the offered beers are locally brewed, and taps rotate twice a week. Patrons can request that specific beers be included in the rotation. On Saturdays the bar offers micro drafts for $3.50, and on Sundays domestic drafts go for $3 and micro drafts for $4. 

Westside Tavern Established in 1928, this is the epitome of a classic, hole-in-the-wall dive, complete with video lottery games in the back, two pool tables and great company. Michelle Mora, a longtime Westside patron, explained why she chooses to frequent this dive: “I’ve always felt super comfortable coming to Westside, it’s unpretentious. I feel like I’ve been a regular since the moment I first walked in the door,” she said. “There’s a great sense of community and you can honestly just come as you are.” The prices don’t hurt, either. “I mean, wine is under $4,” she added.   While Westside doesn’t have an epic amount of beer on draft, it offers rotating local ciders and seasonal beers from Deschutes Brewery. You can also take beer to go—single cans, or a six pack.  Mountain’s Edge Sports Bar & Grill This pub-dive hybrid is known for hosting pool leagues five nights a week and offering an extensive selection of local brews. “Most of the beers on tap are local, other than the staple domestics,” said bartender Chance Ferguson. “We rotate three beers frequently and try to take as many requests as we can.” Happy hour takes place seven days a week from 4-7pm, and features $4.25 micros, $3.25 domestics

and well drinks for $4.25. The food menu is also impressive and extensive, complete with a dive must-have: tater tots. “I think the definition of a dive bar is really just a cool, mellow place to hang out with your buddies,” Ferguson said. “A place with a neighborly feel and no formal dress code.”  Honorable Mentions: JC’s Bar and Grill - The giant board games might bring you there, but the epic beer specials will keep you there. 16 rotating beers on draft and $1 Pub Beer, Coors Light and PBR on Thursday nights. Yes. $1.  Hardtails Bar & Grill - Known for being a “biker bar” once frequented by none other than Tonya Harding, this Sisters staple is a “local watering hole” if I’ve ever seen one. The bar has a full selection of microbrews on tap as well as an extensive bottled beer collection. The beer is served chilled by a new glycol system that delivers brews to the glass at 32 degrees, every dang time. D&D Bar & Grill - The oldest bar in Bend, the D&D is proud of its dive bar reputation. The bar was also voted Best Hangover Spot in 2019 in our Best of Central Oregon readers’ poll, thanks to its comprehensive menu of greasy spoon fare. We love this bar. ‘Nuff said.

Back in Sisters

Kacy & Clayton return to Central Oregon on the heels of their latest album By Isaac Biehl




ust a few months ago, Kacy & Clayton were performing at the Sisters Folk Festival and I chose them as one of the bands to make time to see live. Now the Saskatchewan-born duo is returning, this time to The Belfry, and I still feel the same way. Shortly after last year’s SFF, Kacy & Clayton released its fourth fulllength album, “Carrying On.” It’s 10 songs of hypnotic folk, pulling inspiration from classic days of country and blues. At just over half an hour, “Carrying On” marks the duo’s most polished album to date.

“Before we worked with him, I certainly had a tendency to obsess over arrangement things that weren’t really that important to the listener. That really taught us a lot, I would say.” —Clayton Linthicum “[We had] more confidence in our songs and performances. The usual things that take experience for bands to develop. I was really pleased with the tones that we got on this last album, more than the one before,” Clayton Linthicum tells the Source. “It just sounded closer to what we were trying to sound like.” Produced by Jeff Tweedy, “Carrying On” is the second straight album the Wilco front man has worked on with Kacy & Clayton. It’s safe to say Tweedy has taken a strong liking to the duo’s sound and talent over the last few years—not a bad guy to have in your corner.

“It’s really encouraging. He’s an extremely attentive listener as well as being really relaxed. He’s such a deep listener that he keeps you engaged,” praises Linthicum. “He’s taught us that there’s just so many details that you don’t need to worry about with music. Like to not become obsessed with the wrong things. Before we worked with him, I certainly had a tendency to obsess over arrangement things that weren’t really that important to the listener. That really taught us a lot, I would say.” The relationship first started four years ago when Kacy & Clayton opened

up for Wilco in San Francisco. This year, on Wilco’s current tour, Kacy & Clayton join the band for eight shows, making for some pretty incredible nights across the U.S. and Canada. For people who don’t know, Kacy & Clayton are actually cousins—but it wasn’t until Clayton’s teenage years that they began to collaborate musically. “I think when we were really little kids, we were friends. And then maybe like between the ages of 5 and 10 we weren’t as close. But most of the time we’ve been pretty good friends,” says Linthicum. “I was around 15, 14 or so. Kacy is a couple

years younger than me and that’s when we started playing shows as a duo. And we’ve been at it ever since.” Early on, the two would play gigs at a senior center, as a jam group. These times performing proved to be rewarding. Among the seniors who were able, Linthicum says there was most definitely a lot of dancing. “It was a good way to learn how to play with other people. It was mostly people in their 70s or older. We’d play like Hank Williams, Roy Acuff. Pretty simple chord changes. So, it was a good way to learn by ear, predict patterns and stuff like that. It was a good way to start.”

Linthicum tells me the Pacific Northwest is probably his favorite place to play in the States, and he fondly remembered last year’s SFF appearance. “We got to see Peter Rowan’s Free Mexican Air Force,” recalls Linthicum. “I’m a huge Peter Rowan fan, so that was really cool. Great town. I got to walk around quite a bit and really enjoyed it. It was a nice, relaxed weekend.” Kacy & Clayton

Getting Wiser


On the cusp of Lost Ox’s sophomore album By Isaac Biehl

Courtesy Lost Ox

Our artists are cleaning out their studios...

Great Deals on the art you love!

Saturday, March 21 9am-3pm (come early!)

To be held in the Kenwood School Gym 701 Newport Ave. (Parking behind the gym)

A F INE A RT G ALLERY Everyone in Lost Ox is a songwriter, which contributes to the wide variety of music they play.


ortland’s Lost Ox first became a band in 2017, then released its debut album in March of 2018. The two-year mark is upon “Wildheart,” and the boys of Lost Ox have grown plenty since then. They’ll look to improve off an already well-received album with the band’s sophomore effort. Guitarist Dylan DiSalvio tells me that the band has been in the studio recently and plans to release the first of two EPs in the next coming month. Meanwhile, they’re cooking up a bunch of new songs. And by the end of the year, the second Lost Ox album should be released for everyone to hear. Read the rest of our interview with DiSalvio below. Source Weekly: It’s almost been exactly two years since “Wildheart”  was released. What makes you proud to have that as your debut album and what was it like getting positive feedback from the Portland and Northwest scene? Dylan DiSalvio: We put a lot of energy into “Wildheart”—over 120 hours in the studio recording and mixing, countless early mornings and late nights. We were a new band then; we started recording “Wildheart” less than one year after our first show as Lost Ox. It was a big step up for us. Professional studio, professional gear, professional engineer, with a strict timeline and it put a lot of pressure on us as a new band. This kind of crucible-like experience pushed us and grew us in unexpected ways and set us on a trajectory which we still travel on and filled our sails with enough wind to start getting there. SW: You can’t really be pigeonholed into just one genre. What are some of the band’s biggest influences?  DS: Each of us comes from a different world of listening, but we all kind of came of age in the jam band scene and are united by our love of the Grateful Dead. Add a little Funkadelic and a couple dashes of Doc Watson and Tony Rice and you may get a sense of the strange,

strange place we’re coming from. SW: Lost Ox will be playing at McMenamins Old St. Francis School here in Bend. Are you excited for the show? DS: Yes! It’ll be our second time, and third time in Bend. Loved the tubs the first time. Big ups to McMenamins for treating artists well! We love them. We’ve only been playing in Bend over the last half a year or so but we already feeling the love and diggin’ in. I wanna give a shout out to our friends John Morris and Samantha Harber for putting us up and showing us around town! Life’s a lot better with compadres. SW: I’m pretty interested in the name Lost Ox. What’s the story behind that? DS: Band names are hard to pick. We like animals and we wanted to name the band after an animal. Musk Ox was suggested but I vetoed it because, well, musk oxes are stinky—hence the “musk.” I liked the sound of Lost Ox and when Reed googled it, he found this 10-panel Buddhist story drawing, which is more well known as the story of the “Ten Bulls.” The gist is that the ox is a metaphor for your mind/enlightenment, and “Lost Ox’” is the third panel, in which the quest is begun but not yet attained. The oxherd in the story accomplishes the goal of finding and taming his ox, even riding it into town at the end, and eventually there is no distinction between ox and rider and the oxherd is at peace. Once I read the story, it was obvious that it should be the band name, particularly for us—an indulgent American band bent on exploring, pushing and expanding our own experience —not the wisened guru, certainly; much more of an enthusiastic adept, perpetually striving, winning, losing ourselves to freedom and then bouncing right on back to ourselves. Lost Ox

An Evolving Conversation

New play explores racial ecology and the relationship between cops and communities of color By Cayla Clark


IndieWomxn Film Festival + Trashformations Two worthy events, centered around the arts

IndieWomxn Film Festival debuts In honor of Women’s History Month, BendFilm and Scalehouse have partnered up to bring a festival of films made by women and about women. The mini-fest happens March 12 to 16, with screenings at the Tower Theatre, Tin Pan Theater and McMenamins. The short festival will also include panel discussions with local athletes and artists. Including in the screening is “Clemency,” directed by Chinonye Chukwu. The film won the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 2019, making Chukwu the first black woman to ever

Kathleen Kelly

Julana Torres and Rico Anderson performing in "Evolve." What began as a series of monologues on racial profiling has evolved into conversations about race and law enforcement.

Adult Basic Skills team at Central Oregon Community College, explained why he wanted to bring the show to Bend. “So many people of color, so many professionals have been moving here,” he said. “That means there are more black students, more mixed-race students and families. What we really want to do is open the lines of communication between community members and the police. We want to get people working together, opening their hearts and minds to make necessary changes. If a young adult of color gets pulled over, let’s say, and they’re under the influence, we want to encourage the police to help them get the treatment they need and deserve. Rather than lock them up and throw them into the system, we want to encourage them to facilitate change.”

Day noted that being part of these conversations has helped open his eyes. “This journey has completely changed my life. I now have a greater amount of empathy and more willingness to try and understand things that are outside of my personal bubble. The goal is to start seeing the humanity in one another. When we see each other just as ‘police’ or as ‘people of color,’ we’re preventing ourselves from fostering deeper and richer relationships with others.” He also suggested that he could have done things differently during his 29 years on the force. “I don’t think that we’ve been doing a good job in law enforcement training,” said Day. “We tend to focus on feelings rather than behavior. In some cases, the behavior itself is racist or sexist, and we need to do a better job of talking

about that. It’s easy to write things off by saying, ‘Well, nobody is perfect.’ But really, all that is, is an excuse to not try. I think it’s important for both sides to realize that mistakes will be made. “Because of the nation’s history of racism, it’s easy to focus on division rather than inclusion. We spend a lot of time toting our good intentions, but we haven’t really gotten to the root of the problem. We view everything through a racialized lens; everybody does. Really, there should be a greater focus on power, access and opportunity. Of course, we can’t ignore the issue, but we can’t spend so much time there that we lose sight of things like managing power and authority; how to allocate power in a way that’s equitable to everyone.” Day said that while opening one’s self up to new schools of thought can be extremely difficult, few things are as rewarding. “I always say that there has to be a willingness to be comfortable being uncomfortable. ‘Evolve’ creates a space where people can sit in the same room with competing viewpoints and consider other perspectives. I’ve learned that we’re very quick to dismiss people’s experiences and beliefs because we don’t agree with them. This project has really opened my eyes; it allows me to see people for who they are—people.” Evolve

win the award. Also featured is the film, “No Man’s Land,” showcasing the amazing athletic feats of women all over the world. There will also be a showcase of the best women-focused shorts that screened at BendFilm last year. BendFilm has been a huge champion of women’s films in the last few years, and this new festival is a revelation of sorts. Consider that in the 90-year history of the Academy Awards only five women have been nominated for the best director, with only one winning. And yet, here is a whole festival showcasing women’s amazing work in front of and behind the camera. Bravo.

them late into the night, as they made giant creations from discarded materials including metal, wood, old encyclopedias and more. Visitors participated by watching the artists work. Now the event is part of Bend ReStore’s Upcycle Festival to kick off Earth Month. Artists get one day and free rein of all discarded/used materials available at ReStore of Bend to build

fantastical creations. The work is then sold and proceeds go to the Bend-Redmond Habitat for Humanity. I am not one to suggest any artists do anything for free and yet, I feel compelled to get the word out about this gem of an event. Even though it has changed hands over the years, its soul is still the same, calling to the local community to collaborate and create while rethinking waste. IndieWomxn Film Festival

n Aug. 9, 2014, Michael Brown Jr., an unarmed black teenager, was fatally shot by a 28-year-old white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. This and other similar events sparked nationwide controversy surrounding police brutality and racial ecology, and birthed the nationally recognized phrase of protest, “Hands up, don’t shoot.” Shortly after the incident, The New Black Fest commissioned seven black playwrights to create monologues on racial profiling, negative encounters with the police and the black community as a whole. The show, “Hands Up: 7 Playwrights, 7 Testaments,” was crafted by a handful of African American community members who had experienced racial profiling. When Bob Day, retired deputy chief of police in Portland, first saw the play over three years ago, he had questions. “I had some frustrations with the show,” he said. “I approached the director afterwards and explained that I felt law enforcement officers weren’t being accurately represented. We got to talking, and we developed a relationship. This relationship ultimately led to another portion of the show—stories directly from police officers. ‘Hands Up’ was combined with ‘Cop Out’ to make what is now ‘Evolve.’” “Cop Out: Beyond Back, White and Blue” is a series of monologues based on interviews with law enforcement officers. “It isn’t presented as false equivalency,” he said. “The show is about dissonance; it forces you to look at and sit with opposing views.”  Marcus Legrand, the Pathways College and Career Success Coach with the

imagine that kind of sharing happening in Chicago, where he’s originally from. Both Torcom, along with Riff Cold Brewed Co-founder/CEO Paul Evers, give credit to those who’ve come before them. Evers says it all started over 30 years ago when Gary Fish founded Deschutes Brewery, “They really were the impetus for creating a craft culture in Central Oregon,” Evers said. Torcom also acknowledges Fish and Humm Kombucha Founders Jamie Danek and Michelle Mitchell for their leadership and willingness to share expertise with newcomers. fRED Sauce’s Giacomini says the support isn’t just from other producers, but from the entire community. “Bend and all of Central Oregon is very supportive of local food producers, restaurants, and the growing food truck culture. This local support allows us to grow and in the case of fRED SAUCE, expand.” Food for the Sole Co-Founder Julie Mosier echoes Giacomini, stating, “The creative energy in Bend has grown in Tambi Lane Photography

the last decade and that, coupled with some amazing resources both formal and informal, create an atmosphere that makes it easier to grow.” Riff’s Evers is also on the founding board of directors for Cultivate Bend, a nonprofit trade organization focused on enhancing the sector’s (food/beverage) ecosystem in Central Oregon. That means sharing wisdom, forging connections, creating resources and ultimately getting locally made products distributed outside of the local market to bring jobs and vitality back to the area. Humm and Hydro Flask have already stepped up as founding members. Micah Elconin, president of Season to Taste Food and Beverage Business Consulting and director of Eugene’s Table, has been contracted by Cultivate Bend to structure the organization. Evers calls Elconin a force within the food and beverage industry in Oregon but assures that, “We’re not cutting and pasting the program from Eugene; we’re adapting the program for our unique collection of companies in Central Oregon, which are more oriented toward early stage development.” Evers adds that the smaller community means a higher level of accountability and connection, again adding to that spirit of cooperation and collaboration. “It really takes a community to have success here at a higher level, more so than in a metro area,” Evers said. “The objective of Cultivate Bend is to bring people together and provide really rich programming that is going to help various businesses to become successful.” For more info on Cultivate Bend, Contact Paul Evers

rom hot sauce to dehydrated adventure meals to coffee fruit tea to toffee candy to organic nut butters, an array of food products are produced in Central Oregon. Despite the geographic challenge (over two hours to nearest metropolitan area) which contributes to distribution hurdles, among other things, local food product producers seem to agree there’s an entrepreneurial spirit in the air. Case in point: The ongoing collaboration between a new local hot sauce maker and a longtime beer producer. Silver Moon Brewing’s Manager of Operations, Curtis Endicott, is a self-proclaimed foodie who started following Habit Hot Sauce Bud Torcom via LinkedIn when he saw Torcom post about the new hot sauce. “It took me a while to finally get some of his product in my hot little hands,” says Endicott, “but from the first taste, I was very impressed. In a flash, I was sharing it with our Head Brewer, Jeff Haskins, and discussing how it might pair very well with our Mango Daze. Jeff is a huge fan of spices, heat and all things fermented. We did a quick sample right then and there in the taproom, shared it with the brew team, and everyone gave it a thumbs up.” Endicott says immediate plans include blending Silver Moon’s Mango Daze Pale Ale with Habit’s Habanero Hibiscus hot sauce for Habanero Mango Pale Ale. If the pairing proves popular in the taproom, a long-term goal would be a larger, dedicated batch brewed and fermented with Habit Hot Sauce along with the possibility of a kettle sour. As Mazama Media CEO/Habit Hot Sauce Founder Bud Torcom puts it, “We look out for each other. For example, fRED Sauce (Fred Giacomini) has given us advice and we would be considered competitors.” Torcom says he can’t

Tuesday - Sunday, 11am - 9pm






every year since we opened!

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic 1917: From director Sam Mendes comes a war movie unlike any you’ve seen before. Crafted to look like the entire film is done in one shot, “1917” is easily the most intense war film since “Saving Private Ryan” or “The Thin Red Line.” See this on the biggest and loudest screen you can find. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX, Odem Theater Pub


BAD BOYS FOR LIFE: It’s shocking the producers didn’t wait until the fourth installment to use this title, but at least we have another one of this ridiculous franchise to enjoy. This one is actually surprisingly serious, focused more on aging and mortality than one would think for a movie like this. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX, Odem Theater Pub BIRDS OF PREY: An absolutely bonkers comic book movie featuring Margot Robbie as psychotic anti-hero Harley Quinn. For everyone who thought “Joker” was an original comic book movie, “Birds of Prey” shows audiences how weird DC Comics can get with their movies. Way too much fun. Regal Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX BRAHMS: THE BOY II: Movies about evil dolls are

pretty popular right now, but I definitely never expected to see a sequel to “The Boy,” which had a twist ending designed to eliminate the need for sequels. Regal Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX

CALL OF THE WILD: Based on the beloved novel by Jack London, this new adaptation has Buck the dog as a completely CGI creation. The movie is very pretty to look at and has some lovely moments, but Buck never quite escapes from the uncanny valley. Regal Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX, Redmond Cinema CLEMENCY: Alfre Woodard stars in this gripping

drama about a death row warden dealing with the psychological toll of her job. A very powerful and humane film that shines a light on the importance of empathy in 2020. Tin Pan Theater

Spring iss u


DOWNHILL: This is an American remake of the fantastic Swedish/French film “Force Majeure” which follows a family on vacation having troubles. After a false avalanche, the dad ditches his wife and kids as he runs to safety, completely losing his family’s faith in him. The remake won’t be as good as the original, but Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are always fun to watch. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX EMMA: Soon to be mega star Anya Taylor-Joy

stars in this quirky adaptation of the beloved Jane Austen novel. The film is charming, fast paced and delightfully funny, making this the best Austen adaptation since 2005’s “Pride and Prejudice.” Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

FANTASY ISLAND: Based on the TV show that

ran from 1977 to 1984, this version of “Fantasy Island” turns everything into a Monkey’s Paw-type situation where everyone’s wishes turn horrifying and deadly. Changing existing intellectual property into a horror movie is a great idea. Can we get a horror-movie version of “Love Boat” or “Charlie’s Angels,” please? Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX

THE GENTLEMEN: Ever since “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,” Guy Ritchie has been making very specific British crime comedies, but “The Gentlemen” is easily his best since 2000’s “Snatch.” Even as the originality of these movies has worn off over the years, Ritchie’s frenetic direction keeps them worth watching. Odem Theater Pub GREED: Steve Coogan is an international trea-

sure and director Michael Winterbottom is responsible for some stone-cold classics over his career, so consider me excited for this one about


THE INVISIBLE MAN: A surprisingly thoughtful and

intense remake of the James Whale classic just as interested in destructive masculinity as jump scares. Much better than it has any right to be, “The Invisible Man” has a lot to say about modern society while simultaneously being a crackerjack horror flick. Regal Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

I STILL BELIEVE: A romantic musical drama about a Christian singer whose wife is diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Based on the life of recording artist Jeremy Camp, “I Still Believe” hopes you’ll bring the tissues. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX, Sisters Movie House JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL: Everyone’s complaining that this is just more of the same and I’m like, “Yes, please. I’ll take three more, please.” Kevin Hart does the greatest Danny Glover impression and Danny DeVito is a national treasure…what more do you need? There’s a scene with DeVito climbing down a ladder that made me snot laugh. This movie is a delight. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX

ONCE WERE BROTHERS: Arguably, the greatest rock documentary of all time is Martin Scorsese’s look at the final performance of The Band, “The Last Waltz.” Here we have a different look at the group, this time focused on the early days of the band from the point of view of Robbie Robertson. As a fan of their music, this documentary is unmissable. Tin Pan Theater. ONWARD: Pixar releases another tearjerker with this fantasy about two elf brothers trying to use a summoning spell to bring their dad back to life for 24 hours. “Onward” is a fun adventure across an epic fantasy world, but be ready to talk to your smaller kids about death. See full review on p. 35. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema ORDINARY LOVE: Liam Neeson and Lesley

Manville are a married couple who have been together for many years and get shaken after Manville gets a breast cancer diagnosis. The two actors are so good together, the film never becomes weepy or maudlin. Sisters Movie House

PARASITE: The Oscar winner for Best Picture and Best Foreign Film comes back to theaters to deeply unsettle everyone who missed it the first time. The smartest, funniest and most shocking movie you will see all year. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX, Tin Pan Theater PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE: A stunning French

masterpiece set in 1760 about a forbidden romance between two women. One of the best films of the year so far, that should be seen by anyone with a love for period dramas. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG: A live-action movie about a really fast alien who looks like a hedgehog and the evil doctor who wants to run experiments on him. This should be terrible, but somehow it’s charming and surprisingly not annoying... as far as movies about alien hedgehogs are concerned. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX, Redmond Cinema THE WAY BACK: From the director of the

surprisingly great sports films “Warrior” and “Miracle” comes another surprisingly great sports film with Ben Affleck as a high-functioning alcoholic who becomes a basketball coach. Remarkably, even with a description like that, the film isn’t cheesy for a single second. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX

 STREAMING THIS WEEK “I AM NOT OKAY WITH THIS” Imagine if “Carrie” wasn’t super sad and awful and instead was a black comedy from the creative team behind “The End of the F**king World.” Starring Sophia Lillis (who stole “It: Chapter One”) as a girl who has some pretty intense superpowers. Delightful stuff.

The Spring Issue of Bend Nest will have local parents shouting hooray! Readers can look forward to fun and informative features on • Summer Camps • College Prep • Celebrating Mother’s Day • Springtime Family Events • Best of the Nest Winners

Tissues SCREEN Daddy "Onward" wants your sweet, sweet tears By Jared Rasic Courtesy Disney/Pixar



f we’ve learned one thing in the 25 years since Pixar released its first film, “Toy Story,” it’s that the studio is master at balancing emotion, comedy and excitement. You’re guaranteed not only a visually stunning cartoon that kids will enjoy, but also a story that will absolutely wreck you as an adult. Whether it’s the loss of childhood in “Toy Story 3,” the acceptance of death in “Coco” or the dance of love and heartbreak in “WALL-E,” the ideas and themes for Pixar films have always superseded being popcorn entertainment for kids. The newest offering, “Onward,” is no different, but tends to feel like a reverse-engineered tearjerker instead of coming by its emotions honestly. “Onward” exists in a world where magic used to exist, but is now an urban legend. All the characters are still creatures of myth, including pixies, centaurs and manticores, but they drive, watch TV and play D&D instead of going on quests or conjuring magic spells. The two heroes are Ian and Barley Lightfoot, a pair of elf brothers who live with their widowed mom, Laurel. When Barley was a child and Laurel was pregnant with Ian, their husband and father, Wilden, became sick and died, leaving Ian to grow up without meeting his dad. For his 16th birthday, Ian is given a magical staff, a rare gem and a summoning spell which will bring his dad back to life for 24 hours. But the gem isn’t quite powerful enough to summon all of their dad and only brings forth the lower half of his body, so the two brothers take to the road in

Just starin’ at the sunset with my half-dad. No big deal.

Barley’s creepy van to find another gem to power the staff and finish summoning their dead dad. It’s a heart-tugging concept made all the more emotional by the voice work of Tom Holland as Ian and Chris Pratt as Barley. Holland is becoming a pro at finding nuance and emotion just with the timbre of his voice while Pratt (who is obviously replacing Jack Black as Barley) basically does his Thor impression from “Avengers: Infinity War” for 90 minutes. They’re perfectly cast (as is Julia Louis-Dreyfus as their mom, Octavia Spencer as a manticore

and Lena Waithe as a cyclops), and carry the film effortlessly. “Onward” is designed as a tearjerker for anyone who’s either lost a dad or never had one to begin with and seems engineered with that objective in mind. The tears that come from “Up” or “Toy Story 3” were byproducts of a beautiful story, lovely characters and emotion that felt earned throughout the runtime, but in “Onward” there’s a calculation to the sadness that feels manipulated. It’s a weird difference, but you can feel it: whether your tears are coming from something pure and honest or whether

they’re coming from someone specifically setting out to make you cry. Either way, it worked on me plenty. I’ve got daddy issues out the caboose and “Onward” played me like a fiddle. Pixar is really that good: I knew I was being emotionally manipulated, and instead of resisting it, I was like “Take my sweet tears, Pixar, I LOVE YOU!” What a softy. Onward

Let the Madness Begin With tournament selections upon us, Oregon’s college b-ball teams will be on full display come tournament time

OAS Ski For All

The Oregon Women’s team celebrates winning the Pac 12 tournament this season.


very year March comes around same as always, and every year I’m still pumped for March Madness. It’s truly a beautiful thing—and should perhaps be considered the ninth wonder of the world. It’s fun to fill out brackets, see the buzzer beaters, become fans of your favorite new underdog school and witness some of the most talented young athletes perform on the big stage. For Oregonians, this year, our state’s schools will be right in the spotlight. Both the men’s and women’s teams at the University of Oregon have caught a lot of attention this year, and as of this writing, are ranked at 13th and 3rd in the AP top 25 polls. At Oregon State, while the men’s team has struggled, the women’s team is thriving and currently ranked 14th. Here’s a look at the teams that will represent Oregon, and how they might fare come tourney time. University of Oregon Women You really don’t have to look further than Sabrina Ionescu to point out what this team has going for them. The senior point guard is not only becoming an Oregon legend, but a household name around the nation with basketball fans. She has the most triple-doubles ever by any NCAA basketball player and is the first player ever (male or female) to record at least 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 1,000 assists.

Beyond Ionescu, Oregon’s roster is deep. Fellow senior Ruthy Hubbard is dominant in the paint and is the team’s leading scorer. Satou Sabally and Erin Boley can shoot your lights out and the Ducks have the highest scoring offense in the league. They beat Team USA and are 10-1 vs. ranked opponents this season. If they aren’t your favorite to win the tournament, they should be. Oregon State Women The Beavers are tough this year. In both Civil War games this season they played the Ducks pretty close. As a testament to how good this team actually is: Stanford, the #3 ranked team, lost to the Ducks by 32 points in just one game, whereas over two games the Beavers only lost by 19 points combined. They might not have as many big wins as the Ducks, posting a 4-6 record against ranked opponents this season, but even in losses they play the good teams close—an important trait to have as a team come tournament time. Right now the Beavers are projected to be a four-seed in the tournament, and they have upset potential if they happen to come across a oneseed down the road. They out-rebound opponents by almost 11 per game and have the grit to possibly make it out of the Sweet 16, along with the experience of already playing some of the country’s top teams.

University of Oregon Men This team has been on a roller coaster this season. While there have been more ups than downs, some of the downs are pretty low. They have some bad conference losses against Oregon State and Washington State, and close losses at now second-ranked Gonzaga and formerly ranked North Carolina, who might sneak in as a 16 seed to the tournament. Highs include beating Seton Hall and Michigan, and the Ducks have a record of 6-2 against ranked opponents this season and are 15-0 at home. The Pac 12 is pretty tough this year and might send seven teams to the tournament, so Oregon’s conference record of 11-5 shapes up pretty nicely considering the level of competition. Led by West Linn’s Payton Pritchard, the home state senior is now officially a semi-finalist for the Wooden Award. He’s shown over the years that he often plays best in big moments, and with Pritchard’s experience in the tournament, a deep run is definitely a possibility for this team. But... so is an early exit.

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of shushing down a mountain, hair blowing in the wind. And thanks to the efforts of Oregon Adaptive Sports, that feeling is extended to a lot more people. This weekend, OAS hosts the Ski For All event at Mt. Bachelor— “an all-abilities ski-a-thon at Mt Bachelor and a full day celebration of inclusive outdoor recreation,” according to the event description. Participants can ski or ride as much as they can in one day, while raising funds to support the mission of Oregon Adaptive Sports. Participants either raise $50 for OAS, or pay the $50 entry fee themselves (and then try to fundraise more by sharing the event with friends). Then, participants ski as much as they can on Saturday. Prizes are handed out for the people who skied the most vertical feet, as well as a new “Serious Stoke” award category. Entry includes a lift ticket, breakfast and lunch, and snacks in between—as well as a party at Bend Brewing Company afterward. Oregon Adaptive Sports Ski For All Sat., Mar. 14. 9am-4pm. Mt.

The Barred Owl is Here—to Stay! The nemesis of the threatened spotted owl By Jim Anderson 39 alien invaders, such as European starlings—they may eat their cousins out of house and home, literally. What is for certain is that we humans have played a big role in allowing the barred owl to migrate from the East to the West. Our logging practices opened the gate. Clear-cutting became a way of life for the logging industry in the Northwest, and Canada enjoys that method of cutting trees as well. So, we’ve created a forested freeway for them to travel from East to West. Barred owls are mostly cavity nesters, which puts them in direct competition with our native screech, saw-whet and pygmy owls for breeding sites. And, the barred being the larger of the group, means it may win that battle as well. As far as I know, the barred owl is the ONLY owl that sings an eight-note call, which is unique. I have heard birders humanize the call to, “Who cooks for you, who cooks for all,” with a drop in the tone on the last part. It’s normally pretty noisy in spring, but if a great horned owl responds to the barred’s call, it will shut down immediately and may even leave the country. Great horned owls are the chief predator of barred owls. The photo of the barred owl’s ear opening provided me the opportunity



irst it was rumors: “The barred owls are coming, the barred owls are coming…” Next, it was the dire warnings that the barred owls were going to either chase all the Northern Spotted Owls out of the Northwest, or breed with them and bring forth a whole new sub-species called, “Sparred Owls.” Then the warning was the feathered invader would compete with the spotted owls for prey and eat them out of house and home—which seems to be the case. Way back in the ‘80s, one turned up in Alfalfa, and then about five years ago I found one spending some time in Tumalo State Park on the Deschutes. Another was seen near Crescent, then recently another was observed hanging around the Old Mill District in Bend. And now they’re roaming around Sisters, Tumalo and the countryside in between. Unlike the spotted owl, which is a specialist and concentrates feeding on small boreal rodents in old growth forests— with an occasional gopher or two for variety — its close cousin, the barred, will gobble up just about anything it can find--maybe even a chicken or two. And, because they are close relatives, the fear they will mate with their cousins, the spotted owls, may be real, producing some kind of half-breed that will eventually destroy the original Northern spotted owl as a species. It’s almost for certain—as it is with many

to show just why owls are so good at catching prey by sound alone. That huge ear-opening is capable of sensing a mouse tip-toeing through the tulips, and the fact that they are not situated like human ears — directly across from another, but offset, means they’re super accurate at locating prey. And speaking of prey, don’t be surprised if you’re out fly fishing and you come upon a barred owl standing in the creek or at the edge of a lake. They will

occasionally wade into water to gobble up a few spawning fish, pollywogs, frogs, salamanders or crayfish. Barred owls will even come to a campfire if it illuminates large insects, such as June bugs and the like. Keep your eyes peeled for an owl about the size of our local great horned, but without any “horns.” Don’t be bashful about sending me an email if you see one; I promise, I won’t shoot it. And if it sings that eight-note song to you, consider yourself one of the lucky ones.

table, they’re able to exert energy toward thriving and living their best life. If housing is affordable, people can spend more energy and resources on healthcare, nutrition, education, daycare, transportation and other important products and services. In 2013, Habitat for Humanity completed a three-year study of the adverse effects of the lack of affordable housing and reported that when families lived in poor quality housing, parents experienced more psychological stress, and children showed elevated levels of emotional problems, including symptoms of depression and anxiety, and elevated behavior problems, like aggression, lying and deceitfulness. Every growing city must concentrate efforts on creating affordable options and solutions to the problem. A house is not just four walls and a roof; it’s a place that provides shelter while nurturing and protecting its occupants, where one can feel safe and can depend on sanctity—a place where loved ones gather and memories are made. Home ownership has an incredible influence on an individual’s personal development and the future of youth. The lack of affordable housing is posing issues for a significant population of Bend’s current residents and has become a deterrent for some families trying to move here. If Central Oregon is to remain a healthy, growing city and highly desirable destination, there must be attainable affordable housing options for all who choose to live here.

Why affordable options matter he separation of wealth across this nation has been growing for years and Central Oregon is not immune to this. An enormous influx of people from out of town purchasing homes at top dollar continues to drive sale prices higher and higher, demonstrating the simple law of supply and demand. The critical factor to recognize is that when home prices escalate, the cost of homes at the lowest price points are increasing at a similar rate. Without new affordable homes being built to meet demand, the lower-priced homes become out of reach for many locals. According to Habitat for Humanity, when there’s a lack of affordable housing in a community, the issues that arise include higher rents, substandard housing, rising crime rates, adverse mental and physical health effects, poor academic performance, racial segregation and developmental delays in children. On the flip side, there are many positive reasons why attainable low-cost housing is important, beyond bettering a person’s mental and physical well-being. Affordable housing promotes diversity, by appealing to people of all backgrounds. The Center for American Progress reports that communities that provide housing options create jobs both short and long term, while also attracting businesses that are drawn to quality employees with stable housing. When individuals aren’t simply focused on survival, paying the electric bill and putting enough food on the

SCIENCE ADVICE GODDESS Not OK, Cupid A gay male friend set me up on a date. The man was HORRIBLE. He spent the entire date talking about himself. Everything was a brag. He didn’t ask one question about me. Now I’m wondering whether my “friend” knows me at all. Why would he set me up with someone so wrong for me? —Seething Woman The road to good intentions is sometimes paved with hell. It’s understandable you feel bad, considering your friend’s idea of the guy you’d like was a mismatch on par with inviting the vegan neighbors over for a baby seal roast. However, there are probably a number of misperceptions at root here -- yours as well as his. We’ll start with yours: We tend to believe our minds -our emotions, desires, and intentions -- are more transparent and readable by others than they actually are. We also tend to believe others are better at reading our minds than they actually are. To get a little perspective on this, consider the parallels this fix-up fail has with failures in gift-giving. I used to sneer at gift registries for weddings as cheat sheets for the lazy to buy presents for the greedy. Boy, was I ever off base. Research by business school professors Francesca Gino and Francis Flynn found that married people who’d received gifts they’d listed on their registry appreciated them more than the off-list gifts their guests slaved away finding or making. In fact, spouses they surveyed saw these registry gifts (which could take all of four minutes to pick, click, and ship) as more thoughtful and -- get this -- even more personal! This is the exact opposite of what we gift-givers think will be the deal. “Gift givers expect unsolicited gifts will be considered more thoughtful and considerate by their intended recipients than is actually the case,” explain Gino and Flynn. Our refusing to buy from the registry -- feeling confident that off-list gifts we toil to buy or make will be more appreciated than the stuff our friends ask for -- reflects a failure in “perspective-taking.” Psychologist Nicholas Epley explains perspective-taking as imagining another person’s psychological point of view. It’s basically the ability to put yourself in another person’s shoes, to see the world from their perspective, to sense what they want and need. In contrast, when we give our friends getting married some weird

gargoyle-faced decanter (instead of the solar-powered garlic press they asked for), we’re answering the question, “What would I want?” rather than, “What would they want?” (which they’ve helpfully laid out in a big online list). Epley’s research suggests our tendency to fail at perspective-taking comes out of mental shortcuts we are driven to take. The brain is energetically “expensive” to run, and just like those energy-saving refrigerators, it’s engineered to avoid sucking up power unnecessarily -like by keeping us from doing a lot of thinking when we can get away with just a little. Accordingly, Epley finds that in perspective-taking, we’re prone to come up with Amy Alkon a quick and dirty guess about what another person wants and just run with it. But even in making this guess, our mental laziness tends to be pretty epic. We typically don’t even start by considering what they might want. We start with what we’d want, make a few minor adjustments, and tell ourselves it’s what they’d want. Helpfully, all of this goes on subconsciously; we don’t step back from the tepid whirrings of our mind and realize that we’re short-shrifting our friends. We might catch our errors before we sent a friend off into the jaws of a helldate if we did the responsible thing and checked our mental work -- “Hmmm, is he really the sort of guy she’d want?” -- and then made any necessary adjustments. However, we aren’t about to put our precious cognitive resources into adjusting judgments we’ve already settled on. So, Epley explains, “insufficient adjustment” -- a failure to look closely at our judgments of others’ perspectives and make corrections -- is “the rule rather than the exception.” In other words, the sort of man your friend fixed you up with probably has less to do with how he appraises you than how mentally lazy we all evolved to be. It’s generally wise to expect others to be pretty bad at figuring out what you want. Telling somebody what works for you can sometimes be helpful (if they don’t just nod their head and give you what’d work for them). Accordingly, you should prepared for fix-ups to be horror fests -- killing seasons for your psyche. However, you might just get lucky -- get matched with somebody great. So, consider whether getting fixed up might be worth it, despite the risk of evenings spent biting your lip to keep from blurting out: “Dude. The line isn’t, ‘If you love something, make its ears bleed.’”

ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I suspect your

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Giacomo Puccini’s famous opera Tosca premiered in 1900. It featured a heroine named Tosca. In 1914, Puccini’s favorite Tosca, a soprano singer named Maria Jeritza, was performing in a production at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. As she got ready to sing an aria entitled “I Live for Art,” she stumbled and fell. Rather than struggle awkwardly to rise, she pretended that this was all quite natural—called for in the script. She sang the entire piece while lying on the floor. Puccini loved it! Ever since then, most of the singers who have played the role of Tosca have sung “I Live for Art” while prone. I suggest you regard this as an inspirational teaching. What lucky accidents could you make into permanent additions or enhancements?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus poet Gary Snyder said, “Threefourths of philosophy and literature is the talk of people trying to convince themselves that they really like the cage they were tricked into entering.” Personally, I think that many of us, not just philosophers and writers, do the same thing. Are you one of us? Your first assignment during the next four weeks will be to explore whether you do indeed tend to convince yourself that you like the cage you were tricked into entering. Your second assignment: If you find that you are in a cage, do everything you can to stop liking it. Third assignment: Use all your ingenuity, call on all the favors you’re owed, and conjure up the necessary magic so that you can flee the cage.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Your body is not a temple,” declared author and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. “It’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.” I half-agree with him. I’m deeply devoted to regarding the body as an amusement park. It should be a source of endless fun and enjoyment. We have the right—indeed, I’d say a duty—to wield our bodies in ways that immerse us in the mysteries and miracles of pleasure. But here’s where I disagree with Bourdain: I believe the body is also a temple that deserves our reverence and respect and protective tenderness. Your assignment in the coming weeks, Gemini, is to raise your commitment to treating your body as both an amusement park and a holy temple.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Early in his career, Cancerian painter Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796–1875) sold only a few paintings. But eventually his luck improved. Once he was financially successful, he became very generous. He wielded his influence to get jobs for other artists, and mentored many artists, as well. Sometimes he added a few dabs of paint to the finished works of younger, struggling painters, then signed the canvases with his own name so that the works could more easily be sold. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to adopt your own version of Corot’s approach toward those around you who could benefit from your help and support. (P.S. It’s in your selfish interest to do so, although the reasons why may not be clear for a while.) LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Composer Brian Eno has testified that African music underlies and influences much of his work. He exults in the freedom and unpredictability it encourages. Why? Here’s one reason: In African songs, there are often multiple rhythms. And they’re not locked together; they float freely in relationship to each other. Eno says this is different from Western music, whose salient quality is that all the rhythmic

elements are contained “in little boxes”—locked into a tyrannically mechanical clockwork pattern. According to my reading of the astrological omens, dear Leo, the coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to experiment with Eno’s insight. How? Escape mechanical clockwork patterns and activate the “multiple, free-floating rhythm” metaphor in everything you do.

N U R N O M L SA 43

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Are you interested in enhancing your mastery of togetherness? Are you open to my suggestion that you should seek out practical education about the arts of intimacy? Would you be willing to meditate on how you might bring additional creativity and flair into your close alliances? If you answered yes to those questions, the next six weeks will provide you with ample opportunities to dive in to all that fun work. “Collaboration” and “cooperation” will be words of power for you. “Synergy and symbiosis” should be your tender battle cry.


fantasy life will be especially potent in the coming weeks. Your imagination will have an enhanced power to generate visions that could eventually manifest as actual events and situations. On the one hand, that could be dicey, because you can’t afford to over-indulge in fearful speculations and worried agitation. On the other hand, that could be dramatically empowering, because your good new ideas and budding dreams may start generating practical possibilities rather quickly.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): As you come to the climax of your Season of Good Gaffes and Lucky Bloopers, I’ll remind you of folk singer Pete Seeger’s definition of a “productive mistake.” He said it had these five qualities: “1. made in the service of mission and vision; 2. acknowledged as a mistake; 3. learned from; 4. considered valuable; 5. shared for the benefit of all.” Let’s hope, Libra, that your recent twists and turns fit at least some of these descriptions!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Would you consider making one more push, Scorpio? Can I coax you to continue your half-confusing, half-rewarding quest? Are you willing to wander even further out into the frontier and take yet another smart risk and try one additional experiment? I hope so. You may not yet be fully convinced of the value of these forays outside of your comfort zone, but I suspect you will ultimately be glad that you have chosen what’s interesting over what’s convenient. P.S. In the coming weeks, you could permanently expand your reservoir of courage.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A traditional astrologer might say that you Sagittarians typically spend less time at home than any other sign of the zodiac. Some of you folks even rebel against the idea that having a stable home is a health-giving essential. You may feel that you can’t be totally free unless you always have your next jaunt or journey planned, or unless you always have a home-away-from-home to escape to. I understand and appreciate these quirks about your tribe, but am also committed to coaxing you to boost your homebody quotient. Now would be a perfect time to do that. You’re more open than usual to the joy and power of cultivating a nurturing home.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The more crooked the path, the faster you’ll get to where you’re going. Every apparent detour will in fact be at least a semi-valuable shortcut. Any obstacle that seems to block your way will inspire you to get smarter and more resourceful, thereby activating lucky breaks that bring unexpected grace. So don’t waste even a minute cursing outbreaks of inconvenience, my dear, because those outbreaks will ultimately save you time and make life easier. (P.S.: During the coming weeks, conventional wisdom will be even more irrelevant than it usually is.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): When I was a young adult, I was unskilled and indigent. Many restaurants exploited my feeble prowess at washing pots and pans and dishes, but the meager wage they paid me barely kept me fed and housed. You will perhaps understand why, now that I’m grown up, I am averse to cleaning pots and pans and dishes, including my own. That’s why I pay a helper to do that job. Is there an equivalent theme in your own life? An onerous task or grueling responsibility that oppressed you or still oppresses you? Now is a good time to find a way to declare your independence from it.

Homework: “In purely spiritual matters, God grants all desires. Those who have less have asked for less,” wrote Simone Weil. Is that true for you? FreeWillAstrology.com

SMOKE SIGNALS Four Great Oregon Cannabis Brands

Some of a weed writer’s faves, in no particular order

GET YOUR Do not operate a vehicle or machinery under the influence of this drug. For use by adults 21 years of age and older. Keep out of the reach of children.

By Josh Jardine


here are thousands of growers, edible makers and concentrate processors in Oregon, and I partake in a great deal of cannabis in many forms. Despite my best efforts, I haven’t tried everything, and new products drop all the time. So, these are just a few of the brands I consider favorites and is not a comprehensive list in any manner representing all of the majesty available. Green Source Gardens Arguably one of the leaders in Northwest “clean cannabis,” Green Source Gardens has obtained numerous third-party certifications and awards for its hyper-organic flower, including Sun+Earth, Certified Kind, Dragonfly Earth Medicine and more. The company fully embraces the belief of cannabis as medicine over commodity, and provides a level of transparency surrounding grow methods that all farms should strive to match. Last year, I used its Koffee Berry (Koffee x Pinkleberry) in a vaporizer at an event I produced and paired it with some Stumptown Cold Brew. The flavor notes of the flower matched the beverage perfectly, and the strain exploded with terpenes that coated my mouth. I’ve sampled their other unique strains such as Zelly’s Llama, Pinkleberry Wonder, Coyote Art and others that I’ve only found through them. The company is the platinum standard for what can be achieved in sungrown cannabis when an exacting attention to detail is applied to all aspects of the grow. greensourcegardens.org Ten Four Farms Ten Four products are a hot commodity. At one dispensary, the budtender told me they limit the amount even medical patients can buy of this brand due to its popularity. I’ve watched people waiting for a fresh delivery of product. A rotating selection is geared toward quality over quantity. Its signature strain is PGSC, aka Platinum Girl Scout Cookies. Although the GSC strain has numerous variations, the PGSC is a masterful offering of tight, frosty buds that break apart to reveal snow-covered interiors. The buds are a riot of reds and purples, with a scent that starts the mouth watering. Citrus strain fans are in luck, with Mimosa, Sour Tangie and Lemon Meringue, along with two strains bred in Portland: White Tahoe Cookies and Astral OG. Gorilla Glue #4

and a new strain, Breathwork, round out the menu. Consistently solid in every manner. tenfourpdx.com/home-2 Pruf Cultivar A tour of the facility, in person or via the website, confirms a cutting-edge, technologically advanced grow system which underscores that I, for one, welcome our future robot overlords. Until then, I welcome getting my meatsack hands on anything Pruf is producing. It’s a wide-ranging selection of three categories: THC rich, balanced and CBD rich. The website shows 31 strains in the THC-rich category alone. There are a few which are familiar— Strawberry Cough and Purple Punch—but the majority are not. Many have Pacific Northwest names (Timberline Haze, Steel Bridge, Doug Fir), and the website offers exquisite terpene profiles of each along with valuable flavor profile information. It’s a painstakingly achieved strain collection and shows technology and hands-on care can produce some extraordinary flower. (Disclaimer: Head Farmer at Pruf is my friend Jeremy Plumb, who has forgotten more about cannabis than I know. He didn’t hook me up with any flower.) prufcultivar.com Gnome Grown Organics This vertically integrated brand has its flower scattered around, along with a well-stocked dispensary in Oregon City. Flowers are produced using its self-described “Legendary Cultivation,” which involves “many symbiotic relationships within a healthy ecosystem create our renewed, naturally rich growing conditions,” the company says. Gnome Grown’s Durban Poison remains the best example I have found of that strain in Oregon, providing a rush of energy rivaled by double fisting Red Bulls. They also produce some other well-known strains (Zkittlez, Peanut Butter Breath, Dogwalker) and some rarer exotics (Bewilderbeast, Purple Goji, First Class Funk). Everything tastes as it smells, and is pot-porn-centerfold worthy. This crew has been producing exceptional flowers for over 25 years, and represents what Oregon bred and grown cannabis can achieve. The focus is on producing the loud, and not being loud with a thirst for clicks and attention. gnomegrownorganics.com
