Congress passed a giant public lands bill this month. We report on how it affects Oregon rivers, fire zones and wilderness—and look at what some say got left out.


REPORTER Keely Damara



OPINION Market of Choice Legislature: Bills we’re watching is hiring! T he 2019 Oregon legislative session is humming along. Here’s our take on some of the bills.

A 63 percent pay raise is too much

Senate Bill 959 proposes a pay raise of about $20,000 for Oregon legislators. That represents a 63 percent pay raise from what they earn now—currently around $2,600 per month, plus per diem expenses when the Legislature is in session. Legislators got a pay raise of 28 percent in February. Sponsors of the bill include a bipartisan group including Senators Floyd Prozanski (D-Eugene) Fred Girod (R-Stayton), Ginny Burdick (D-Portland) Dallas Heard (R-Roseburg). The bill would offer legislators an “estimated average income for residents of Oregon.” Prozanski and Burdick hope the change would help the legislature attract a more diverse group of legislators—including younger, working people, as well as more people of color. While we agree that more diversity could be a good thing, a 63 percent increase in one shot is too much. As reported by OPB, data from the National Conference of State Legislatures showed that the change would make Oregon’s Legislature one of the highest-paid in the nation—at a time when they have yet to solidify solutions for the unfunded actuarial liability with the Public Employees Retirement System. The Legislature should come up with a solution before they give themselves more money. We agree with Sen. Tim Knopp (R-Bend) on this one, who said, “It sets a dangerous precedent for the organization in charge of spending for the state to give themselves a pay raise. If the voters want us to be paid more, they can propose a ballot measure to do so, but I won’t hold my breath.”

At least two bills in this year’s session aim to establish a paid Family Medical Leave program in the state. Both had public hearings this week. While the U.S. remains the only industrialized nation without paid maternity leave mandates, a handful of states, including Washington, have passed paid family leave in recent years. HB 3031, sponsored by dozens

of Democratic representatives and senators, establishes a program that requires both an employer and employee contribution of no more than .5 percent of wages or payroll. It allows for 12 weeks of family, military or medical leave, and 26 weeks of paid leave for caring for a new child. Pregnant women who experience health complications could get an additional six weeks ahead of the birth of the child. HB 3385, sponsored by Rep. Daniel Bonham (R-The Dalles), would not require employers to contribute, would cap employees’ contribution at .4 percent of pay, would offer six weeks of paid medical leave and as much as 12 weeks of family leave. While both bills would benefit families, it’s feasible to expect employers to contribute, as it’s not just families affected by this issue. Employers are affected, too. According to a study commissioned by the global company, Vodafone, the cost of recruiting and training new employees is nearly double the cost of offering women 16 full weeks of paid maternity leave. A small deduction from payroll is a small price to pay for the peace of mind that when a change of life happens—or when a loved one gets sick—there’s a system in place to help.

Increase Hate Crime Vigilance SB 577, created by Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum’s Hate Crime Prevention Task Force, aims to collect data about hate or “bias” crimes, as well as modernizing the state’s hate crime laws. The bill would require law enforcement officers to refer hate-motivated complaints they themselves aren’t investigating to the Oregon Department of Justice. The bill would add hate crimes to the data the Criminal Justice Commission collects. To get a handle on a problem, you generally have to know the extent of it. Further, SB 577 would make it so people who threaten or engage in violence against a person because of their protected class—including gender identity—get punished more harshly. Currently, punishment for those crimes is less than punishment for minor property crimes. Numerous groups, including the Superintendent of the Oregon State Police testified in support of SB 577 this month. Legislators should support it, too






When I think of the recent tweets from the President, I think in terms of textiles. There was a thin fabric that covered our lives and served as a boundary between absolute evil and Mayhem and societal decency that has been removed. “You. Are. Nuts.” was George Conway’s counter tweet. I tend to agree. He quoted the mental health bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for the description of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. This is the public airing of more textiles—dirty laundry. The kind of behavior we are seeing from someone who is deigned to represent the best and brightest among us has application in many aspects of our lives. He unravels the silk thread of


our moral compass: bullying, homophobia, racism, sexism, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, lying, cheating, stealing, debauchery, greed, lack of intellectual curiosity, jealousy... virtually the devils grab bag of sin. Yet he boasts, and I mean BOASTS, a 90 percent approval rating among people we call neighbor, co-worker, and occasionally spouse, as in the Conway marriage. We scratch our heads and make a sideways glance in an effort to see the external defect that would be a clue. What has caused this fabric of decency to disintegrate? It’s not funny anymore if it ever was—people are dying. Children are caged, and planes are crashing because safeguards weren’t put in place during the toddler-driven government shutdown. Environmental protections are being removed so fossil fuel can flourish. Nothing is too heinous and nothing is off limits when the chance to make a buck or build a hotel or golf course is weighed. “Clean the swamp” is replaced by feed the swamp monsters. And yet his “fans” (because let’s face it, this is a reality show not a government), staunchly support the President while he garbles word salad and rants incoherently illustrating George Conway’s diagnosis. He is smitten by dictators and tweets like a 14-year-old girl, “Do you think he likes me?” Meanwhile the world laughs but also lives in fear like we do. The infection spreads to places like New Zealand where the white cotton hood fabric that previously covered the heads of hateful supremacists is uncovered. They are empowered by this president for violence. Recently he overtly threatened that his strongmen (military and police) were tough and ready. Coming from a family of Holocaust victims and survivors this rhetoric and the tone is familiar. Ramp ‘em up, get them juiced...this fabric is a bit of torn striped uniform worn by family members at concentration camps. “I wasn’t a fan,” the President remarks, in reference to war hero and patriot, John McCain. Is nothing too low? I’m afraid the answer is a whisper: “no.” When we are finally rid of the disease that is Trump, how will we look at our neighbors, coworkers, and spouses? Can we knit together a defense mechanism giving ourselves permission to forgive? —Jan Falk


The article on racism in the Source had one major omission. Where was the discussion about the most oppressed and ignored group in the U.S., the lower-middle class white? It is this group that has the highest suicide/death rate among all demographic groups. Both political parties have long ignored the social and economic needs of this forgotten class. When jobs continued to go overseas, did anyone ever hear President Obama express concern? I believe President Trump

was elected largely because he tapped into this group’s frustration. For them, there is an absolute need to “Make America Great Again.” Some in the article express concern about “MAGA” hats. Would they object to an African American wearing a “Black Pride” hat? Of course, with the Democrats’ emphasis on “identity politics,” you are stereotyped a racist if you express concern about thousands of immigrants crossing the border illegally resulting in more competition for jobs and lower wages. You are also a racist if you believe that many of those here illegally have access to public and private funds not available to citizens. Five years ago the Bulletin printed a special insert which, among other articles, explained how a local, unemployed illegal Hispanic immigrant had been cured of leukemia with the aid of public and private funds. My son died from the same disease and his wife was left with over $100,000 in bills. We could find no public assistance for him in spite of the fact his income was modest. I am glad the individual recovered and was able to get help, but I wonder about a society that cares more for the non-citizen than for those who are here legally. Some of our young people express their family’s resentment in immature ways and we need to work to understand why they feel the way they do. Other young people will say insensitive things and need to be corrected. And finally, in this politically correct obsessed environment, many people will find that almost anything they say is offensive to someone. Hopefully, those people with “rabbit ears” will learn to chill out. I should stress that I believe all citizens should be treated with respect and given equal opportunity. Due to higher birth rates and illegal immigration, it won’t be long before people of color dominate our political, educational and business worlds. Will this new world be free of sexism and racism???

Letter of the Week:

J. Lewis—While your letter offers much to respond to, there’s not enough room on this page, so I’ll just point out another “omission.” It’s true middle-age white men have the highest rate of suicide, but according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, it’s women, not men, who have higher rates of depression, and attempt suicide at higher rates. But since more men attempt suicide with firearms, they’re more often “successful.” Across genders, whites attempted suicide at rates just roughly 2 percent higher than American Indians and Alaska Natives, at 15.85 percent for whites and 13.42 for Natives in 2017. Among youth, it’s Black students with the highest attempt rate, at 9.8 percent, with white students at 6.1 percent. If we’re going to consider how “ignored and oppressed” might equate to suicide rates, let’s not cherry-pick facts. Come on in for your gift card to Palate. —Nicole Vulcan

As it stands, Oregon will be losing over 900 teachers statewide (15 in Bend) and three school days in the current 2019-20 biennial state budget. HB3063 will impact roughly 31,000 students. That could mean an additional loss to school budgets of over $403,000,000. Under HB3063, our public charter, magnet, and Head Start schools will suffer as they encompass a higher population of non/under vaccinated students. In Bend, these schools stand to lose over $10,000,000. HB3063 will negatively impact countless businesses that run student activities outside of schools: afterschool programs, meal programs, churches, parks and recreation, libraries and non-profit organizations. HB3063 also adversely affects independent schools and small business in the childcare sector the most. Independent/parochial schools and day care centers receive ZERO program funding from the state or federal government. With 10- 48 percent of student populations in the non/under vaccinated category, these businesses will experience corresponding income loss threatening their continued ability to operate. In Bend, this means HB3063 threatens the viability of 85 businesses. Independent schools and childcare are income generating to the state. “In 2016, Oregon’s private-sector child care businesses numbered 1,187 and employed 11,421 workers. Half of the businesses had four or fewer employees. Educational services in private elementary schools employ over 10,500.” Child care/Day care facilities are also owned predominately by women. Denying children the right to attend school and participate in afterschool activities are not Oregon values. Oregonians deserve much better solutions than HB3063. —Erin Hansen

Housing Bill Gets a Slight Remodel Cities remain wary of a legislative proposal that would require many of them to open the way for townhouses and small apartment buildings in neighborhoods filled with single-family homes, even after changes meant to ease them into it. Gov. Kate Brown and House Speaker Tina Kotek have promised to tackle troubling trends in Oregon’s housing market. Rising rental prices and real estate costs, especially in the Portland area, have led to what Kotek likes to call a “missing middle” problem: a shortage of homes that middle-class people can afford. House Bill 2001 would require cities of a certain size to allow attached housing and “cottage clusters,” detached homes built around a shared courtyard, on any residential lot now zoned for single-family houses. The bill was unveiled in January to cheers from affordable housing advocates and boos from some neighborhood groups and city officials. - Mark Miller, Portland Tribune/Oregon Capital Bureau

Conflict to Collaboration: Central Oregon Irrigators Celebrate with Diverse Group

Allison Frost/OPB

The party under a big white tent at the edge of a reservoir fed by the Deschutes River would have been an unlikely celebration just a few years ago, but this week environmental advocates and farmers came together to celebrate $50 million in federal funding for modernizing irrigation in Central Oregon. Outside the tent, U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., cut the ribbon on a 7-foot wide pipe that represents middle ground in a once-litigious conflict — just one ceremonial chunk from about 69 miles of pipe  replacing the open-air canals serving farms in the Tumalo Irrigation District. Merkley has championed funding that also supports Three Sisters Irrigation District, which has piped most of its canals, and piloted a micro-hydro system of turbines to turn diverted water into electricity. “This is such a win-win,” Merkley said. “It delivers energy with in-pipe hydro projects, it delivers water more efficiently and it proceeds to be possible to put more water back in the stream for the health of the river.” - Emily Cureton, OPB

Has Tennessee Solved Oregon’s Foster Care Crisis? The Oregon child welfare system is in crisis — and has been for years. A scathing audit in 2018 detailed how the state is failing its most vulnerable children. The agency has paid millions of dollars in settlements over the years after children were harmed while in its care. Meanwhile, children are being placed in hotels, sent to out-ofstate facilities, staying in retrofitted jails or languishing in emergency room departments because there is no place for them in Oregon. Children who do manage to land with foster parents often bounce around to dozens of different placements within a few years. The problems are entrenched and decades in the making. But now, there is some optimism among child welfare officials that a shift in mentality — and resources — could help alleviate some of the state’s troubles. It’s a mindset that other states have embraced with some success. - Lauren Dake, OPB

Apartment Fight Rages On

City Council Finalizes Goals

The City of Bend gave the approval to build 170 units near the Pavilion, but a local developer is taking the case to the state

By Chris Miller

Chris Miller


fter some public outcry and tense meetings, on March 7, the hearings officer for the City of Bend gave the go ahead for the planned 170-unit apartment building near The Pavilion off Colorado Avenue. But that doesn’t mean the fight over the apartment building is over. On March 19, William Smith Properties filled an appeal with the City. During the March 20 Council meeting, City staff recommended the Council decline reviewing the appeal—which it did. The appeal will likely end up being heard by the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals. Liz Fancher, who represents William Smith Properties, said they have 21 days from the final decision to file the appeal with the state. The proposed apartments have rankled some residents from the beginning. In February of last year, people picketed the proposal before Seattle-based Evergreen Housing Development Group had even filed its formal application with the City. Nearly 100 people filled the Pavilion during a pre-application meeting to vent their opposition to the building— citing a lack of parking, traffic headaches and the size and scope of the building near the Deschutes River. In June of 2018, Smith hired Francher to push for a public hearing. On Jan. 10, a standing-room-only public hearing was held in front of Hearings Officer Will Van Vactor. The meeting was tense and lengthy, with some people calling for Van Vactor to recuse himself because

t its March 20 meeting, the Bend City Council approved its two-year goal package for the City. The 2019-2021 goals fall into four categories: Economic Vitality: Including housing, jobs and managing growth. The City’s strategies in this goal seek to increase opportunities for additional housing and housing types like affordable housing and land for employment through public-private partnerships. Transportation and Infrastructure: City leaders said its strategies aim to maximize access and mobility for all users, which requires an investment in transportation projects like the Neff Road and Purcell Boulevard intersection, Reed Market Road/ Bond Street roundabout and the Highway 20/Greenwood Avenue sidewalks. Public Health and Safety: Goals aim to preserve current service levels and response times for emergency responders, address crime, add more support for mental health issues, homelessness and to build wildfire resilience.  Effective and Efficient City Operations: The City’s strategies run the gamut from facility planning to updating the City’s charter. It will work on developing an equity, diversity and inclusion program and intends to develop a balance sheet that shows a financial snapshot of the City’s long-term liabilities and financial commitments.  The City said it anticipates requiring up to $5.6 million in additional revenue to implement its biennial work plan. The Council said the money would primarily come from raising franchise fees and increasing transportation system development charges

Public Lands



The newly passed public lands bill helps with fuel reduction at Crooked River Ranch, but resource activists say it missed protecting some important public lands

Steelhead Falls on the Deschutes River is one place that still needs permanent protection, according to the Oregon Natural Desert Association.

By Chris Miller


n March 12, President Trump signed the public lands bill— formally known as S. 47, or the John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act, into law. The Act, formerly known as the National Resources Management Act—includes the Oregon Wildlands Act. Included in this large piece of legislation was a new wilderness designation for Oregon’s Devil’s Staircase Wilderness, a more than 30,000-acre swath of public land southwest of Eugene. Also included in the Act: help in battling wildfires. The Act also affords improved flexibility for hazardous fuels reduction for places including Crooked River Ranch, the unincorporated community of about 5,500 people in Jefferson County. On Nov. 8, the deadliest wildfire in California’s history started near the town of Paradise. By the time it was

finally extinguished, it had killed over 85 people and caused over $16.5 billion in damages. The area the fire burned through has an eerie similarity to the area near Crooked River Ranch: grasses, steep canyon lands, dry fuels including juniper trees and low humidity. Part of the land adjacent to CRR is managed by the Bureau of Land Management and is part of the Deschutes Canyon—Steelhead Falls Wilderness Study Area. In working on the public lands bill, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) helped create a provision that would release a small number of acres from the Wilderness Study Area, giving the BLM more flexibility to reduce hazardous fuels near the ranch, according to a statement from Wyden’s office. The Act also prevents off-road vehicle use in the released lands to further limit wildfire risks.

Local reaction Carl Harbour, president of the Crooked River Ranch Club & Maintenance Association’s board of directors, said having a wilderness study area adjacent to a subdivision of 2,644 property owners is counter to managing fire safety. Harbour said the release of the 688 acres from the study is a huge step forward in reducing fire threat for the CRR community. “The HOA Board of Directors was in full support of the Bill, and looks forward to the federal agencies creating management plans, then funding and implementing fuels reduction actions in the very near future,” Harbour wrote in an email to the Source. “In addition, every property owner is encouraged to improve their own ‘fire safe’ practices and property improvements.” Harbour underlined that last part, saying everyone has to participate to cut down on fire risk.

“I think it is short-sighted and unrealistic to think that the protection of your property, animals and family members is solely the responsibility of other people or organizations.” Harbour also pointed out how other changes, such as a new exit/entry to CCR, paved out last fall, also help. “This helps response time from supporting local agencies and a second exit option for us if evacuation is needed.,” Harbour said. “Being prepared is never ending.” More work to be done Oregon’s congressional delegation is calling the passage of the bill a major win—though some say more work needs to be done. “These significant steps to reduce the danger of wildfire at Crooked River Ranch were the product of what I call the ‘Oregon Way’—listening to residents about the comprehensive approach they wanted


What got left out However, Goodman-Campbell said she believed there were things left out of the bill—like protections for public lands in Central and Eastern Oregon. One of those projects is protection for the Owyhee Canyonlands—the largest area of unprotected lands in the lower 48 states. “It’s just incredible,” said Goodman-Campbell, who floated the remote river in 2017. “It’s just one of those places you think, how is this not protected? How is this not a national park?” The Owyhee Canyonlands is located in the far southeastern portion of Oregon. It’s carved out by desert rivers winding toward the Pacific Ocean, with craggy red-rock canyons, blue-ribbon trout streams and rolling hills making up a diverse wild land nearly the size of Yellowstone National Park. “Its remoteness is one of those things that makes it so special and it has protected it somewhat in the past,” Goodman-Campbell said. “But it really is facing increasing pressures from

everything from natural gas exploration and mining to fire and illegal off-road vehicle activity.” Another project for ONDA, closer to Bend, is better protection for the Whychus Creek and Deschutes River area near CRR. “In places like Steelhead Falls and on Whychus Creek, we see a lot of vandalism, including anti-Semitic graffiti and destruction of cultural sites,” Goodman-Campbell said. “There’s a lot of out-of-control off-road vehicle use with people harassing wildlife and trespassing on private lands and dumping trash on public lands, including a car that was recently abandoned on the peninsula north of Crooked River Ranch.” Part of the challenge in managing the Deschutes/Whychus Creek area is that it’s managed by a conglomerate of government agencies: The BLM and the United States Department of Agriculture, which operates the U.S. Forest Service, which in turn controls the Crooked River National Grasslands. “One of the reasons we feel (more protection) is so important is to have those agencies to have better guidelines on how they can address these issues out there,” Goodman-Campbell said. An anniversary The 10-year anniversary of the Oregon Badlands Wilderness and the Spring Basin Wilderness is March 30. Goodman-Campbell said ONDA is pushing legislators to help address issues happening at Whychus/Deschutes. “It’s a small area, but it has a lot of pressure on it from being in the middle of a very developed area and in such close proximity to all of the Central Oregon population centers,” Goodman-Campbell said. “It’s so gorgeous and it’s amazing on how wild it still feels being so close to civilization,” she continued. “You step down into that canyon and it’s just amazing that you can feel like you’re the only person that’s been there for years. “It’s still amazingly wild, and we want to keep it that way.” Lisa McNee, BLM

Wild About Rivers

Oregon gets more miles of Wild and Scenic river designations By K.M. Collins Zachary Collier, Flickr

The Natural Resources Management Act included an official name change for Central Oregon’s Wild and Scenic Whychus Creek, formerly known as Squaw Creek.


mid the fever pitch of a long-awaited spring equinox, boaters, kayakers and other water-loving Oregonians are celebrating the recent victories won with the Natural Resources Management Act. Passage of the Act, also known as the public lands bill, means new Wild and Scenic River designations for 621 miles of rivers nationwide— plus, additional default river protections within 2.5 million acres of newly protected lands—landscapes containing many waterways. In Oregon, the Act sets aside roughly 256 miles of new Wild and Scenic designations through the Oregon Wildlands Act, which was combined with the overall Act. The Wild and Scenic designation is the strongest form of federal protection for free-flowing rivers and streams. By giving areas the Wild and Scenic designation, Congress recognizes them as having remarkable scenic, recreational, geologic, fish and wildlife, historic or other similar values. The designation equates to prohibitions for industry and development such as roads, dams and mining, and extraction of other, often-finite resources. Originally enacted in 1968, 2019 marks the 51st year of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. With the passage of the public lands bill, Oregon now also has the highest number of Wild and Scenic designations in the Nation. While a good portion of the new designations are for Oregon rivers in the Elk River, Molalla and Rogue river watersheds, the Act also impacted at least one river locally.

According to Priscilla Macy, regional coordinator for the national river conservation nonprofit, American Whitewater, the Act also, “accomplishes the long-overdue name change for Oregon’s Wild and Scenic Whychus Creek—formerly known as Squaw Creek, a derogatory and obsolete term, and protects 99,653 acres in Oregon’s North Umpqua River watershed as a sanctuary for some of the best wild steelhead spawning areas in the Pacific Northwest.” Macy also notes that the Act will “protect the Wild and Scenic Chetco River in Oregon from harmful mining activities.” As a top-notch kayaker, Macy reflects, “I’ve paddled a few of these [Wild and Scenic River] locations. Perhaps the most memorable was the North Fork Silver Creek. NF Silver Creek is a tributary to the Illinois River in southern Oregon, and perhaps the best overall whitewater run in Oregon. It’s rugged and demands self-sufficiency.... A place in Oregon that just being there requires a certain level of competence, whether hiking in the summer, or padding in the spring.” Macy maintains a podcast covering adventures on rivers at After the Act passed in the House Feb. 26, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) tweeted, “Proud to have worked to build on Oregon’s strong conservation legacy with final passage yesterday of the biggest public lands package in a decade.” Wyden has protected more miles of national Wild and Scenic Rivers in his home state than any member of Congress.


to address their local concerns,” Wyden wrote in an email to the Source. “I am gratified that the hard work to pass the public lands bill contains the protections for Crooked River Ranch as well as major safeguards for Oregon’s natural treasures like Devil’s Staircase and 250 miles of additional wild-and-scenic river designations.” Gena Goodman-Campbell, public lands coordinator for the Oregon Natural Desert Association and a Bend city councilor, said the public lands bill has a lot to celebrate in it, including the fire risk reduction at CRR, the creation of the Devil’s Staircase Wilderness and additional safeguards for Oregon’s rivers (see sidebar – “Wild About Rivers”). “One of the most significant things is the permanent authorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund,” Goodman-Campbell said. “So that helps fund the protection of public lands and waters and it’s a really great tool for public lands protection.”

Classically Modern

The Dip balances old school sounds with a 2019 spin on its latest album By Isaac Biehl




here’s something special about the big-band era. Hearing every instrument fire off sounds to execute the perfect song has an unmatched energy, one you might not find today if you’re not looking for it. However, if you look north to Seattle, you’ll find a seven-piece gem called The Dip. Formed at the University of Washington, the boys of The Dip were studying jazz and decided to try their hand at house parties. Now, I’m not sure about your college experience, but a jazz band at a house party definitely isn’t the norm. “I think people were just so taken aback that there were seven people playing in a room, and there were all these horns,” says drummer Jarred Katz. “Your typical house party is like a fourpiece rock band or DJ, but I think people were like, ‘Woah, is that a bari sax?’ Just by the sheer number and style of music we were playing, I think people kind of gravitated towards that.” Currently The Dip is gearing up for its five-week tour, the longest in the band’s history—and quite possibly the most tight-squeezed situation they’ll ever encounter. Seven guys, instruments, merch and personal belongings, all in one van. “Five weeks is definitely long, man. I feel like three weeks is doable, but that fourth week you’re like, ‘I’m down to be home now,’” says Katz. “There’s seven of us in the band so the van is gonna be very cramped. We’re looking forward to it, though.” The tour comes following the February release of the band’s new album,

Coco Photo

The Dip performs at the Volcanic Theatre Pub on Sunday, 3/31.

“The Dip Delivers.” Spanning 10 tracks, it starts off on an extreme high note with “Sure Don’t Miss You.” You’ll find yourself transported to some dancefloor in the ‘60s as the grit in Tom Eddy’s voice— who also wrote the song—takes you on a journey, remembering better days. Things get slowed down later with “Adeline,” perhaps one of the smoothest and swooniest songs I’ve heard in a while. “We’re really stoked on how that one [“Sure Don’t Miss You”] turned out. It’s

really fun to play live and it’s super easy to sing along to. We’re really lucky to have that song out there,” says Katz. Dabbling in the R&B, soul and blues realm as The Dip does, it’s a challenge to make something that sounds fresh, but the band succeeds at making songs that feel current while paying respect to what came before. “For us, it’s even more important to make songs that feel like our songs, you know?” continues Katz. “Sometimes you’ll hear something and go, ‘That just

sounds like that, but like 30 years later.’ How can you make your own contribution without just ripping something off? We have to keep pushing ourselves to make sure we can find our own lane.” The Dip

Four Favorites: “Deepest Light”

A sneak peek at The Get Ahead’s upcoming album



By Isaac Biehl

The Get Ahead perform at Silver Moon Brewing on Friday, 3/29.


ortland band The Get Ahead is a close-knit group of musicians. They’re five close friends, including two couples—one of which just became new parents. It’s really like one big musical family. The band’s upcoming album, “Deepest Light,” features vocalist Juliet Howard on the cover in the midst of her pregnancy. The band says the art was meant to “celebrate the glorious and magical creative power of women.” While some told the group that the cover might deter some listeners, the band didn’t shy away. “Deepest Light” is a record meant to cover everything life has to offer. Luckily for me I got a sneak-peek at the album before it releases April 26. “Deepest Light” is 11 tracks long—a great combination of soul, rock and folk music. Here’s a list of my four favorites on the record, which ultimately as a whole, is a strong effort that I’ll be sure to come back to. “Sister Cities” As soon as Nathan Earle comes in on this album opener, it’s hook, line and sinker. Earle possesses a tone that’s both inviting and strong, and when Earle lets it go at the 2:20 mark it makes for one of the best moments on the album. The icing on the cake is the sweet saxophone coming in under the hook. I’m a sucker for some good sax. “Deepest Light” Earle is using his pipes to the max on this one, leaving trails of some nicely executed runs all over the title track. This

song is definitely a little groovy – while listening at my desk, my legs were clearly doing things the rest of my body wasn’t. My advice would be to not fight it, because “Deepest Light” will probably win. It makes sense why the band would release this as a single. Stick around for the brief but rocking guitar solo to close out the song.

Melt the Tension

with a FREE 40 Days Program!

“Faint Outline” This is prime folk music – emotional, strong, vast and dreamy. It details the search for a sign, marker or really anything to help point you in the right direction on this meandering road of life. I can already see the many lighters (cellphones?) that will be waved back and forth to this. “Special Breed” This is my number one on the album. “Special Breed” is a true jam – perfect for a weekend road trip (windows down preferred) or when you’re simply in need for those feel-good tunes to set the mood. It clearly feels like the “radio-ready” song from the album, which, is totally fine. It has a chorus built for singing along to and it just sounds that good. Catch The Get Ahead playing some of these songs and more on March 29. The Get Ahead

David Payne invites guests for a cozy evening “chat” with the surprisingly funny Irish author By Elizabeth Warnimont

David Payne plays C. S. Lewis in a one-man show, appearing for just one night at the Tower.

whether he felt the show might appeal primarily to Christian audiences. “People say to me, ‘Is this a Christian play?’ And I say, ‘No, it’s a play,’” he says. “It has some Christian content, because any play about C.S. Lewis, to be honest and truthful, would have to deal with that. But is it an evangelistic thing? No, it’s a play. “I remember when I was doing the play in Tennessee, a very highly-respected reviewer called me before the play and he said, ‘Do you include religious themes in this play?’ And I said, ‘Well, you cannot do a play about C. S. Lewis without reflecting that he was an atheist and he became a Christian.’ He said, ‘Don’t you

ave you ever been out and about and wandered across a piece of art that made you wonder who created it or why it’s there? A new website from the Oregon Arts Commission has categorized and made accessible online all 2,400 works of art acquired and commissioned by the State of Oregon since 1975. In 1975, Oregon become one of the first states to pass legislation that would allow for the allotment of funds for public buildings, giving 1 percent of funding toward commissioning art on public construction projects with budgets over $100,000. This allowed for art to be displayed in and on public buildings all across the state, including college

avid Payne has performed his selfpenned, one-man show, “An Evening with C. S. Lewis,” more than 800 times since its inception. He continues to tour the U.S., with roughly 100 shows each year, the actor told the Source in a recent interview. The production, which lands at Bend’s Tower Theatre Friday, is somewhat improvisational, he says, as he responds throughout each performance to cues he picks up from the audience. “The play, from when it first started out to where it is now, is almost two different plays,” he explains. “It was built on an initial foundation, but as you go along performing it, the audience tells you what works and what doesn’t. You end up saying (during a performance), ‘well, they don’t seem to react to that.’ The audience has pretty much told me what they want to hear.” The idea for the show began to gel while Payne was performing “Mist in the Mourning,” another Lewis biopic he created based on the author’s story of grieving the loss of his wife, Joy, to cancer in 1960. The two had been married just four years. “I was peppered with lots of questions after the show,” Payne recalls. “The sort of questions they were asking I thought would make a great play. “What I did was, I started to do a general research into his biography, and also the questions that people would ask me. Then I selected what I thought was most interesting. What I wanted to do was to find out what affected his life, what shaped his life.” Since many of Lewis’ works reflect a Christian perspective, I asked Payne

think that’s propaganda?’ I said, ‘Well, wait a minute. If I told you about a play that was coming up about a homosexual relationship, would you question whether that was propaganda?’ He said, ‘Well, no.’ I said, ‘Well, why would you question whether what I’m doing is propaganda, simply because I’m including the truth of a man?’ Actually, he came along and gave me a great review.” Of his favorite parts in the production, Payne says he particularly enjoys dealing with Lewis’ relationship with his wife. “That’s a wonderful romance story,” he enthuses, adding, “I like it all, really. I love Lewis’ humor. A lot of people

will be absolutely surprised how much they laugh. He was a very funny man.” To be sure, this is an intimate show. The set is minimal, and there’s only one scene. “I can work with just an armchair, a small coffee table and a pot of tea,” says Payne. “A lot of people tell me, ‘I felt I was in Lewis’ living room,’ or ‘I felt you were talking just to me.’ That’s what it’s all about.” An Evening with C.

You can also search the database for specific artists—like, say you want to plan a trip to see all of Rick Bartow’s public art works. You would need to make a few trips across the state to see all 15 of those pieces. You can also search by theme or medium. I searched for “water” and “Cascades,” yielding interesting results, including the latest acquisition by the state—a new installation, “Reflection of Stream,” by Masayuki Nagase, right here on the OSU-Cascades campus. The website gives a beautiful description of the new installation as well as a great background from Nagase about his inspiration and process. It even inspired me to drive over and see the new piece in person—only to discover it’s not fully installed. But that’s OK; the sun was out

A Community Thread: Jesse Locke





How making a film in Palestine broadened his perspective By Joshua Langlais

—JESSE LOCKE Editor's Note: Joshua Langlais is a local photographer and the creator of A Community Thread, a project for which he interviews folks on the subject of community, its importance and how we function as individuals within it. This is an excerpt from a September 2018 interview with Jesse Locke, who describes himself as a hardworking, creative person and the guy who always wants satisfaction but will never get it. See Locke’s work at A Community Thread: What concerns you or gives you pause? What gives you a heavy heart? Jesse Locke: I would say people who don’t look outside themselves. I feel like I’m a searcher and I surround myself with people like that. What concerns me is bullshit and small talk. Those things—I have no real place for them in my life. I like to be around people who are themselves and honest and true. Now, I understand it’s hard to do that in life and so you have to kind of figure that out as you go. You will always know what I feel—I wear it on my sleeve—and I appreciate that about everyone else. So, when I get a heavy heart is when people aren’t true to themselves and they don’t try to look in the mirror every once in a while and say, ‘Who am I? What am I doing?’ That makes me upset. And bullshit—I think I mentioned that. 

ACT: What does it mean to you when you say make a difference? JL: It’s changing. It changes daily—to try to diagnose or define that—“a difference.” As an American and not that bright, making a difference was not even on my radar. And then I had the lucky turn of fate to go over to Palestine and see these people and broaden my horizons of what humanity looks like and what this all kind of means. What are we doing in this world? Not just, What are we doing in Oregon? What are we doing in Bend? You know, you can become as finite as you want. What am I doing today with my life? So, from that we made the film (found at And I started to find what making a difference to me would be. And using my skill set, which is film, to spread the word. To show people things that they haven’t seen before. And try to change a narrative on a society of people—especially the Palestinians—that I feel like is very negative

throughout the world and especially in America. So, one step at a time, spreading this film—that’s how I began to see I can make a change. Once you get that bug it grows. I got the bug. This is feeding my soul. And you want more of it. And you want to start doing more of this work. You want to start changing more people. And it comes to a point that it’s not good enough. And so, what do you do next—to change, to make a difference? I’ve talked to a couple activists here in town and, in my mind, through these conversations, making a difference now is giving people something to do. I would show a film. And not only will we have a discussion about it afterwards—used to be that was it— now, I want to give them a task or get them to engage in this movement, in this film, in these people in a way that I didn’t before. And that’s how I think I can make the biggest difference.  Listen to or read the interview in its entirety at

and a Movie CHOW Dinner Redmond’s Odem Theater offers a full bar and full menu, plus entertainment By Nicole Vulcan Nicole Vulcan


inner and a movie is a classic date night—but in the era of Netflixand-chill dating culture, you may be lucky if your date invests enough time for just the movie, or just the dinner. Date nights for the time-strapped are one thing Ted Eady had in mind when he opened the Odem Theater Pub in Redmond in November. “I’m a busy guy,” Eady said of his inspiration for opening the dinner theater, saying he figured there are people like him out there, who don’t necessarily have time to devote to dinner and then a movie. The cozy dinner theater offers a full menu of pub fare, set before you as you watch a flick. Regardless of whether you’ve come for a movie, diners can also opt to eat in the dining room, or on the ample patio with fire pits—both facing 6th Street, Redmond’s increasingly

charming downtown “main street.” With the pub serving kombucha, cider and a host of local and regional beers on tap, as well as having a full bar, this spot can be on the radar of not only those looking for a date night, but also for those just looking for a spot to hang out in downtown Redmond. The menu includes personal-size pizzas, salads, burgers, a Philly cheese steak, tots and fried mushrooms, as well as “healthy items” that include vegan flat bread, a portabello mushroom sandwich and a veggie burger. My date and I started off the evening with a pulled pork sandwich from the Finger Foods menu, served with handcut fries, as well as a classic pepperoni pizza. The pizza crust was on the thin side—which I like—with plenty of herb and garlic flavors and lots of pepperoni.

During our visit, we watched Jordan Peele’s thriller, “Us,” one of the bigger films featured at the Odem thus far. Eady, new to the business of working with film studios, says the process of working with the film industry and its myriad rules around screenings has been a learning experience. The theater offers a mix of big box office hits, along with indie films and documentaries. With movie prices slightly lower than the big-box theaters—and with a full bar and a full food menu, Redmond has an option that might make Netflix and chill nights less appealing. Odem Theater Pub

The pulled pork sliders, with hand-cut fries, were juicy, barbeque-y goodness.

The personal size was more than enough for one. If you’re not overly hungry, one pizza should be enough for two people—especially if you’re saving room for popcorn. The pulled pork sliders were delightful, heavy on the barbeque sauce, with a good amount of crunch from the fresh cole slaw added to each slider. Not able to sit through a movie without popcorn, we ordered a small halfway through the film—not disappointed with the buttery, movie-theater-style taste. Eady says he continues to play with the menu, planning to add more kitchen staff as the busy tourist season gets underway. If you’re eating while you watch a movie, metal trays can be affixed to bars in front of your seat—pretty handy when compared to some other dinner theater spaces, which offer only incremental tables, or worse, no space but your lap to place your food. It’s just one of the customizations Eady has made to the space since buying the building back in 2001. Opened as a classic movie theater in 1937 by the original owners, Milton and Fossie Odem, that iteration of the Odem Theater was open until the 1970s. Eady, who owns a number of buildings in downtown Redmond, says he started demolition of the space in 2015. At one point, he and his son uncovered the original letters spelling “Odem” in the basement and used them to have a new neon sign made for outside the theater. After some years of renovation, Eady transformed the Odem into two theater spaces seating 40 people each, with 17.5-foot screens. In the future, Eady says he may add a smaller, third screening room upstairs.

Libby Hays, DVM Rock and rye is a whiskey-forward cocktail in a bottle. Just add ice, or not.


ocks and whiskey—or rocks with cocktails—typically refers to ice. But with rock and rye, the rock is candy. That sweet addition, oftentimes including citrus, has a long history. Let’s start with rye whiskey. From the end of the Civil War to Prohibition, it was the main whiskey consumed in the United States. Rye farmers distilled it with leftover grain. George Washington distilled it on his Mount Vernon estate. Even while in its heyday, the young, spicy spirit was still rough around the edges. Barkeeps would serve it with rock candy, sweetening the drink to make it palatable. As the Temperance Movement gained popularity in the 20th Century and led to Prohibition, rock and rye found its way into the pharmacy, curing all sorts of ailments including sore throats, coughs, colds, consumption and basically any sort of throat, chest or lung ailment. When Prohibition ended, farm subsidies were first given to corn—which ultimately killed rye whiskey in favor of Kentucky bourbon. Rock and rye slowly fell by the wayside. In 2006, as told by Dave Pickerell in “The Rise and Fall of Rye,” cocktail culture began to appear in the U.S. As the movement spread, bartenders researched classic cocktails in books such as “The Bar-Tender’s Guide” by Jerry Thomas and “The Savoy Cocktail Book” by Harry Craddock, discovering cocktails that used rye whiskey. Demand for the spirit increased about 600 percent between 2009 and 2015. Recently, rock and rye has seen a

resurgence. The bottled cocktail is similar in taste to an Old Fashioned, a drink that’s incredibly easy to make, involving a half-teaspoon of sugar, three dashes Angostura bitters, two ounces of whiskey or bourbon and an optional orange or cherry garnish. I tried Hochstadter’s Slow & Low, which hails itself as the first bottled cocktail, established in 1884. The rock and rye recipe, produced and bottled by Hochstadter’s, has been updated to include raw local honey from Pennsylvania, air-dried navel oranges from Florida and Angostura-style cocktail bitters with rock candy. At 84 proof, the spirit is strong but finishes with smooth honey and citrus notes. A new, local addition to the category, bottled by Crater Lake Spirits is their rendition of rock and rye, with dark cherry, blood orange and bitters. At 60 proof, the Crater Lake Spirits Rock and Rye is sweeter and easier to drink. The beautiful cherry notes linger first on your nose. If you like the strength of an Old Fashioned, the Hochstadter’s is probably for you. Locally, rock and rye is gaining popularity. “We sell quite a bit of it, lots of requests,” said Trailhead Liquor owner Angela James Chisum. “It’s great for folks traveling because they can just add ice.” This is an excellent point. While an Old Fashioned is easy to make at home, it’s much easier to pull a bottle from your suitcase and pour when you chill in your hotel room, or grab a cocktail-filled flask when backpacking or camping.

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic Gloria Bell • Courtesy IMDb



ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL: If you’re looking for fast-paced action layered throughout a fairly cool sci-fi story, this is your jam. If you expect a film to have a beginning, middle and an end… avoid at all costs. A huge disappointment from Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX APOLLO 11: A fitting tribute to the 50-year anniversary of man’s first steps on the moon, this documentary brings historical archives as well as never-before-seen footage to the big screen. Odem Theter Pub, Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House


Spring cleaning for the body, mind and soul.

APRIL SPECIAL — Free 15 minute sauna session with a colonic. Must be used the same day. Expires 4/30/19.

CAPTAIN MARVEL: The 21st installment

of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is another charming and action-packed ride. Since this is an origin story, the film can be a bit formulaic at times, but the chemistry of Sam Jackson and Brie Larson is delightful enough to keep things light. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

CAPTIVE STATE: A dark and dour thriller set in

Chicago a decade after the worldwide occupation of alien invaders. One of the most original looks at how our government would act in the face of angry aliens and (BONUS) a remarkable performance from John Goodman make this one worth catching. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

CRUEL INTENTIONS 20TH ANNIVERSARY: As a 17-year old when this came out, I

thought the film was kind of a joke, but in the two decades since, it has become something of a cult classic. Well, here it is, back in theaters, hoping you’ll shell out $16 to see its gleefully sleazy shenanigans, instead of busting out your old VHS copy. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

FIVE FEET APART: Haley Lu Richardson and

Jughead from “Riverdale” star as two plucky kids with cystic fibrosis who fall in love but can’t get too close. For people who thought “The Notebook” was too happy. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

GLORIA BELL: Julianne Moore is always a pleasure to watch, and her new film rests entirely on her natural and effortless charisma. Gloria is a divorcee who randomly stumbles across love at a time when she wasn’t looking for it, leading to a drama of uncommon honesty and beauty. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX GREEN BOOK: A well-intentioned but tone-

deaf look at friendship and racism in the 1950s. While the movie isn’t terrible, there are too many missed opportunities to give the movie a pass. But it won the Best Picture Oscar, so what do I know?!? Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema



Hiccup, Toothless and the land of Berk. If this makes a billion, they’ll surely make more in the series but, as it stands, this is the best final film in a trilogy we’ve received in a very long time. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema, Sisters Movie House


trippy adult cartoon about a psychiatrist who starts picking up his criminal patients’ bad habits. A very strange and fascinating tour though the minds of some brilliant animators. Tin Pan Theater, Sisters Movie House

THE KID: I’m ignoring the Rotten Tomatoes score on this dark and gorgeous Western, with Ethan Hawke as Pat Garrett and Dane DeHaan as a psychotic Billy the Kid. Oh, and Vincent D’Onofrio offers his directorial debut. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE LEGO MOVIE 2: The Second Part: The first Lego movie was the best ever cartoon based on a plotless series of connectable building blocks, and this one is a good one, too. The voice actors are charming and the story hits all the right nostalgia buttons, so prepare to get some more ridiculous songs stuck in your head. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX US: Jordan Peele’s sophomore effort after

2017’s instant classic “Get Out” manages to defy easy categorization. “Us” is at times a deeply disturbing horror flick, a biting piece of social commentary and a disgruntled satire on the United States’ current uncrossable political divide. No matter what you choose to take away from it, “Us” is one hell of a movie. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema, Odem Theater Pub

WOMAN AT WAR: Halla is a quiet woman in

her 50s who’s secretly an environmental activist in her rural Icelandic town. As she single-handedly brings down drones and power lines, she becomes a target for those who’d gain from unregulated expansion. A very funny and urgent gem. Tin Pan Theater

WONDER PARK: It seems like a cartoon

about an adorable little girl and a bunch of animals running around an imaginary theme park should have been done already, but here we are. The trailer is a blast and it’s hard to go wrong with movies about holding on to your imagination, so consider us excited. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

THE OA: After a two-year absence, the

second part of the batshit insane “The OA” has been released on Netflix. This is a series about inter-dimensional travel, modern dance, near death experiences and benevolent gods gifting humanity with powers. It’s genuinely the strangest show I’ve ever seen and I need to talk about it with someone. Like you?!?!


Across America SCREEN Hands Jordan Peele’s "Us" is a Social Nightmare By Jared Rasic


Courtesy of Blumhouse


f there is an “us,” that means there’s also a “them.” No matter how close we are to our “us,” whether it’s our family, our friends or our country, there is always an “other” into which we can place our blame, fear and hate. The other race, the other culture, the other tax bracket. Muslim, Christian, liberal, conservative. But since the “other” is always relative to who we are as individual human beings, then doesn’t that really mean that our own fears and prejudices are in actuality the real enemy? Just like writer/director Jordan Peele’s debut feature, “Get Out,” his sophomore effort “Us” is a thrilling horror show on the surface with layers of subversive social commentary and philosophy underneath. This is a filmmaker and artist who makes sure every frame has meaning and every line of dialogue is fraught with subtext and meaning. When Adelaide (a revelatory Lupita Nyong’o) was a girl, she went to the Santa Cruz boardwalk with her mom and dad. She wanders into a hall of mirrors and sees her doppelgänger, causing her anxiety and deeply rooted fear that lasts into adulthood. Years later, Adelaide (along with her husband, son and daughter) heads back to Santa Cruz and the knots of dread start unraveling her almost instantly. After a creepy day at the beach, that night the family is menaced by another family who looks just like them—except this new family is growling and almost feral, wearing identical red jumpsuits, a single leather glove and each carrying large, golden scissors. What these people want, who they are and why they’re stalking Adelaide

The family that slays together, stays together.

and her family are just a few of the mysteries Peele delights in teasing his viewers with, ratcheting up the tension to almost unbearable levels. To give any more away about the story would be criminal, but the path this film takes is horrifying, insane and impossible to predict. With the film’s reliance on simple imagery like gold scissors, white rabbits and red jumpsuits, the story always feels like it’s leading you down a rabbit hole—maybe for adventure, but more likely to get beheaded by some insane woman with an army.

Every single person I talked to after the movie had a different interpretation of what the whole thing meant. Some people thought it was a treatise on how childhood trauma affects us as we get into adulthood; others thought it was about the dying gasp of the middle class and how society has an almost Pavlovian response to achieving success, while simultaneously being grateful to just be allowed to participate. Peele is mercurial enough as a filmmaker to allow for both of those interpretations while allowing for about a

dozen more. But none of the subtext or thematic weight would mean anything if he hadn’t crafted an excellent film. Because, really, that’s what’s important. “Us” might be a socially conscious experiment in fear and trauma—but it’s also a great horror movie which, for me, is more than enough. Us

Racing on the Deschutes Riverhouse Rendezvous features slalom racing in the river, before warm weather irrigation slows flows


K.M. Collins

every year since we opened!

541.385.RIBS This year's race director, Topher Robertson, slips through a gate during last year's Riverhouse Rendezvous.


lalom kayaking can sometimes seem a bit backward (literally) if you aren’t familiar with the sport. Instead of taking the path of least resistance downriver, racers maneuver both up and downriver to get through specific gates. If you want a chance to see slalom kayakers battle up and down the Deschutes River, the 10th annual Riverhouse Rendezvous is the event to learn more. The Rendezvous takes place Saturday and Sunday. “Slalom kayaking is the same idea as slalom skiing, but unlike skiing, where you are only going downhill, kayakers go through downriver and upriver gates,” explained Topher Robertson, programs director at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe and race chief this year. To get through the upriver gates, racers use features of the river, like eddies, to their advantage, while using maneuvers including pivot turns, in which paddlers put one end of the paddle in the water and rotate the entire boat around the paddle. Gates are made of two tubes hanging slightly above the river, color coordinated based on whether kayakers have to go through them upriver or downriver. Upriver gates are red; downriver, green. To successfully pass through a gate, paddlers must have their head go through the gate without their boat, paddle or body touching the gate. If racers touch a gate, two seconds are added to their race time. If they miss a gate completely or go through it the wrong direction, 50 seconds are added. Because the entire course is just

under 1000 feet, competitive racers can finish in one and a half to two minutes, and recreational races can finish in two to three minutes. This means it’s often worth it for racers to backtrack if they miss a gate. People of all skill levels compete in the race. “Some people will take this race very seriously, while other people will do it just for fun,” Robertson said. “Some people might qualify for Junior Nationals, and for others this might be the only race they do all year.” There are several categories for the race, some based on experience, some on boat type. Some people use sleek, lightweight slalom-specific kayaks, but people also compete in open canoes. Picture someone trying to do a pivot turn in a canoe! River sports in Bend are not as limited in when you can do them, but more so in where you can do them—something the Riverhouse Rendezvous takes advantage of. “Due to the flow regime in Bend, and because water in the Deschutes isn’t diverting water for irrigation, everything below Bend has enough water to kayak. The race weekend is the last weekend to paddle below Bend, because the irrigation canals start getting water April 1,” Robertson said. (Because the Deschutes River flows northward, “downriver,” or water “past Bend” is actually north of Bend.) The section of the Deschutes starting at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes

is a popular spot for whitewater kayakers to put in during the winter and early spring months, before the water gets too low in that section. This run is referred to as the Riverhouse Run by kayakers, Robertson said. The best place to watch the Riverhouse Rendezvous will be from the Riverhouse hotel or its restaurant/bar, Currents. The Riverhouse has partnered with Tumalo Creek as well as League of Northwest Whitewater Racers to put on the race. Past race organizer Bert Hinkley has been a major player in putting the event on—though this year he’s handing the reins over, since he will be competing in a ski race the same weekend. Part of the race entry fees will go to Bend Paddle Trail Alliance, a local organization that “enhances river and lake recreation and appreciation for a wide variety of recreational water enthusiasts while promoting water safety, education, and stewardship,” according to its website. Racers will do double duty at the race; when they’re not competing, they’ll volunteer as gate judges and timers. This is pretty common at kayak races, Robertson said, since the entire race is put on by volunteers.

Woodpecker Festival Ahead By Jim Anderson Jim Anderson

three-toed and the look-alike downy and hairy woodpeckers. Then head out south of Sisters for a good look at Lewis’, and the three races of sapsuckers and flickers. And the list goes on and on. The festival commemorates Dean Hale, an ECAS member tragically killed in an auto accident in 2012. ECAS Board Member Sherrie Pierce, who birded with Hale for years, remembers him fondly. “Dean loved birds, but more than anything he was a people person. His influence is still seen today on many of the conservation and citizen science projects East Cascades Audubon volunteers support,” Pierce said. “He was always ready to teach, help, organize any group or project that had to do with advancing the enjoyment or understanding of our avian population. When he passed away, he was organizing the guides for the second ECAS Woodpecker Festival. It was a no-brainer to name it in his memory. His spirit is always with us, and in his words, ‘It’s all good!’” Festival participants will have a choice of 20 guided tours in search of several of 11 known woodpeckers. Those big wildfire burns, like the Milli Fire, have attracted several species of wood-boring beetles who were hanging out miles away from the Milli Fire and suddenly caught the scent of it. That’s all it takes for wood-boring beetles; they flock to the site even with trees still burning. As soon as the Annette Smith

Dean Hale doin’ what he loved best, watching woodpeckers.



n April 1, registration will be open— no foolin’—for The East Cascades Audubon Society’s premier birding event, held in Sisters: the Dean Hale Woodpecker Festival. The event itself will run from May 30 to June 2. This isn’t “just any old” birding event. People from all over the world take in this one because they’ll have the choice of 20 guided tours in four days. Also, there’s not only the opportunity to see all 11 species of woodpeckers in the Sisters and Central Oregon region, but the chance to potentially observe 200 additional birds of the area as well. A few years back a couple arrived in Sisters from France who were more than serious birders; they wanted to see THE woodpecker of Sisters, the white-headed. The thousands of dollars they spent getting here all came into focus when, right near Conrad Weiler’s layout in Camp Sherman, a male white-headed woodpecker flew right across the road. “That’s it! That’s it!” came the excited cries, with a French accent. Then all that could be heard were whispered, “Ohs” and “Ahhs” in both French and English, as the bird was made real in their binocs. White-headed woodpeckers are that unique—especially when seen for the first time. Well, the ECAS Dean Hale Woodpecker Festival promises even more. Wait ‘til those newcomers get into the Milli Fire burn area and see the black-backed

Lewis’ woodpecker.

burned forest cools down, female beetles are right there to lay eggs, to guarantee the species is here to stay. But no one told them that the scent of forest fires burning also means something to forest woodpeckers who smell it: FOOD! They, too, converge on the site to wait for the beetles that are on their way. Right behind them are the birders, quick to take advantage of the beetles and birds heading into what’s left of the forest. What’s neat about that is the resulting habitat changes. In what was once a climax forest—a forest that is relatively stable—now becomes a brand-new pioneering forest ecosystem with new plants and insects moving in, followed by all the bird species that eat them, followed by birders who become ecstatic about the new birds they place on their Life List. “We really enjoy showing participants our birds in their various habitats, some in places where recent forest fires have attracted a concentration of woodpeckers,” says ECAS member Judy Meredith. “We follow the tradition established by our friend and active ECAS Member, the late Dean Hale, taking folks on upbeat trips and having fun sharing our special birds in the beautiful scenery and pleasant climate of Central Oregon.” Two ECAS volunteers guide each trip. Festival tours are limited to 10 participants, and typically fill quickly and are very affordable. Tours include an allday trip to Summer Lake on Thursday.

On Friday there will be a birding tour to the Crooked River Country and a different trip to the Shevlin Park/Awbrey Hall Burn. Birding trips are all day on Saturday and Sunday morning. The tours go to places such as Three Creeks, Pole Creek, Cold Springs, the Milli Burn, Abbot Creek, Camp Sherman, Glaze Meadow, Indian Ford, Suttle Lake and Green Ridge, as well as several other excellent birding areas. Both weekend days also provide limited mobility birding tours for folks who would like a leisurely pace, use a wheelchair or prefer to walk short distances. In addition to the birding tours, the festival offers a native plants/birding tour on Saturday, and on Sunday, an opportunity to experience the bird banding of kestrels and bluebirds. The Saturday night schedule features an owl prowl and a social gathering at the Belfry in Sisters. Participants provide their own transportation and carpooling is required. In order to take advantage of this best of birding opportunities, get ready now to register starting at 8 am April 1. Dean Hale Woodpecker Festival Thur., May 30-Sun.

Going Green This Spring

Cleaning up your home improvement list lack of smell and their ease of cleaning. New or renewed flooring also comes with many options. Refinishing current hardwood flooring with a safe finish is the most sustainable route because it involves reworking materials already in place. Other great choices include lowVOC laminate, sustainable hardwood with an Earth-friendly finish, cork or tile. If you prefer a vinyl-like performance for kitchen, bath and laundry areas, consider Marmoleum or a natural linoleum product. When replacing carpet, choose a natural fiber whenever possible, and consider requesting environmentally healthy carpet padding and adhesives. The importance of using healthy and sustainable products isn’t limited to the interior of a home; it can also extend to outdoor projects. If you’re painting your house or staining a deck or fence, a low-VOC exterior paint or waterbased stains are the healthiest options. Substitutes to a traditional wooden deck could be a paver patio or alternative decking material such as Trex, which uses recycled plastic materials to produce a low-maintenance product. If purchasing wood products, try to find sustainably harvested lumber, recycled or reclaimed materials. Look for supplies at the local online marketplaces or stop by Habitat for Humanity ReStores (located in Bend, La Pine, Madras, Redmond and Sisters), chock-full of recycled materials for home updates. If you don’t find the perfect item you’ll at least gain new inspiration for your spring project list.



pring is officially here, and many are eager for warmer temps and melting snow. Along with the anticipation of seeing green grass again, the change of seasons commences the time for cleaning and home maintenance or improvements. If you’re prepping your house to get it ready to be sold—or simply doing some necessary maintenance or updates, we have some Earth-friendly ideas to consider. Whether taking on the job yourself or hiring a professional to hammer it out, homeowners are faced with choosing materials for the project. It’s important to note not only how effective or costly the materials are, but also how environmentally responsible they are. Generally, traditional building materials contain high quantities of Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. It’s crucial to consider interior air quality when choosing materials since this is the place where people will be spending a large amount of time. To put it plainly, the less time we spend exposed to and breathing in harmful chemicals, the better. The possibilities for interior upgrades are numerous. Painting and updating flooring are some of the most common—also covering the majority of surface areas in a home. With paint, there are many low- or no-VOC options with minimal cost difference, along with a comparable quality and noticeable health benefits. These paints are also preferable to work with because of

I’m a straight single woman nearing 50. My best friends are a lesbian couple. I’m going to get some nonsurgical skin tightening on my face, and they got very judgmental about it: “We think you’re beautiful as you are.” Next, it was “What if it goes wrong?” and “Will you keep getting procedures till you don’t look like you?” I ended up crying and then getting really angry. First of all, it’s my face. Secondly, I don’t think they understand the pressure on straight single women to look young and beautiful. Thirdly, I think my friends should support me in my decisions even if they don’t agree with them. Am I wrong? —Upset

Adversiting Deadline: April 25 On Stands: May 9

I’m 55. Eventually, if a man catcalls me, I’ll go over and give him a dollar. So I do understand the desire for dermatological intervention—in lieu of a little windup thingy behind your neck that you could crank to tighten the face flesh. That said, your friends probably feel they have a right (and maybe even a mandate) to tell you what to do -- probably because they’re trying to look out for you. The problem is, criticizing people doesn’t make them want to change; it makes them want to clobber the person doing the criticizing. And this seems to be the case whether that person is giving unsolicited advice to a friend or muttering “Dude... seriously on the 24-pack of doughnuts?” to that stout stranger in the supermarket. This happens because our brain’s threat response system is a little primitive. A central player in it is the amygdala—a pair of lima bean-shaped neuron clusters—which makes split-second decisions about whether we’re in danger. Unfortunately, to your amygdala, an attack is an attack—which is to say, a verbal attack triggers the same bodily responses as a physical attack. Your adrenaline surges, your heart pumps like crazy, and blood gets shunted away from your reasoning center and to your extremities. This gets you into the perfect bodily state to bolt or punch your attacker in the nose—a state that’s not exactly helpful for one’s social survival. Tell your busybody friends that it means a lot that they care about you, but that their context—as two nesting lesbians—is not your context as a single straight woman careening toward 50. Set a boundary: Explain that you want their advice on your appearance only if

you ask for it. You could also ask them to be supportive of you—even if they aren’t on board with the steps you’re taking—simply on the grounds that you’re trying to improve yourself and go after what you want. It’s nice when your photo on a dating site makes some man reminisce about a classic beauty from his youth—but not when it’s his grandma’s prized Hermes alligator clutch.

Worst-Chase Scenario I’m a guy, and I’ve noticed that many women (at cafes, etc.) give me flirtatious looks, suggesting they’re interested in me, yet they never approach me. Why don’t they just come over and say hi and get my number and call me or message me? —Annoyed It isn’t hard to get a woman to chase you. Just grab her purse and take off down the street. However, as a dude, if you’re looking for dates or a relationship, you should plan on doing the chasing rather than the waiting. “Males chase/females choose” evolved to be kind of a thing across species—those in which the females get stuck with the greater share of child production and caretaking (“parental investment,” in anthro terms). As evolutionary scientists Peter K. Jonason and Norman Li explain (in their research on playing hard to get), “the sex that bears the greater obligation to offspring is the more choosy sex Amy Alkon (females in most species) and will put the opposite sex (usually males) through ‘tests’ for access.” Keep in mind that many men will have sex with a woman they aren’t all that interested in simply because she pursues them. (In guy terms: “My wrist is tired. You’ll do.”) In line with this, Jonason and Li’s research finds that women benefit from playing hard to get in a way men do not. A woman who refrains from pursuing a man “may increase her perceived value” in his eyes and motivate him to work harder to pursue her. “In contrast,” they write, “men who limit their availability may pay heavier costs than women will through the loss of potential mating opportunities.” As for what this means for you, waiting for women to ask for your digits and blow up your phone with calls and texts is a fantastic idea— if your mail comes addressed to Chris Hemsworth, 26 Movie Star Avenue.

ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus businessman Chuck Feeney made a huge fortune as the entrepreneur who co-developed duty-free shopping. But at age 87, he lives frugally, having given away $8 billion to philanthropic causes. He doesn’t even own a house or car. In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to follow his lead in the coming weeks. Be unreasonably generous and exorbitantly helpful. APRIL FOOL! I exaggerated a bit. While it’s true that now is an extra favorable time to bestow blessings on everyone, you shouldn’t go overboard. Make sure your giving is artful, not careless or compulsive.

GEMINI (May 21June 20): Now is a perfect time to start learning the Inuktitut language spoken by the indigenous people of Eastern Canada. Here are some key phrases to get you underway. 1. UllusiuKattagit inosek: Celebrate your life! 2. Pitsialagigavit, piggogutivagit!: Because you’re doing amazing things, I’m proud of you! 3. Nalligijauvutit: You are loved! 4. Kajusitsiatuinnagit: Keep it up! APRIL FOOL! I lied. Now isn’t really a better time than any other to learn the Inuktitut language. But it is an important time to talk to yourself using phrases like those I mentioned. You need to be extra kind and super positive toward yourself.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): When he was twenty years old, Greek military leader Alexander the Great began to conquer the world. By age 30, he ruled the vast territory between Greece and northwest India. Never shy about extolling his own glory, he named 70 cities after himself. I offer his example as a model for you. Now is a favorable time to name clouds after yourself, as well as groves of trees, stretches of highway, buses, fire hydrants, parking spaces, and rocks. APRIL FOOL. I got a bit carried away. It’s true that now is a good time to assert your authority, extend your clout, and put your unique stamp on every situation. But I don’t recommend that you name entire cities after yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Now is an excellent time to join an exotic religion. How about the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which believes that true spiritual devotion requires an appreciation of satire? Or how about Discordianism, which worships the goddess of chaos and disorder? Then there’s the United Church of Bacon, whose members exult in the flavor of their favorite food. (Here’s a list of more: APRIL FOOL! I wasn’t entirely truthful. It’s accurate to say that now is a great time to reinvigorate and transform your spiritual practice. But it’s better if you figure that out by yourself. There’s no need to get your ideas from a bizarre cult.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Studies show that people who love grilled cheese sandwiches engage in more sexual escapades than those who don’t gorge on grilled cheese sandwiches. So I advise you to eat a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches, because then you will have more sex than usual. And that’s important, because you are now in a phase when you will reap huge healing benefits from having as much sex as possible. APRIL FOOL! I

lied when I implied that eating more grilled cheese sandwiches would motivate you to have more sex. But I wasn’t lying when I said that you should have more sex than usual. And I wasn’t lying when I said you will reap huge benefits from having as much sex as possible. (P.S. If you don’t have a partner, have sex with your fantasies or yourself.)


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you ever spend time at the McMurdo Station in Antarctica, you’ll get a chance to become a member of the 300 Club. To be eligible, you wait till the temperature ouside drops to minus 100 degrees Fahrenheit. When it does, you spend 20 minutes in a sauna heated to 200 degrees. Then you exit into the snow and ice wearing nothing but white rubber boots, and run a few hundred feet to a ceremonial pole and back. In so doing, you expose your naked body to a swing of 300 degrees. According to my astrological analysis, now is an ideal time to pull off this feat. APRIL FOOL! I lied. I’m not really urging you to join the 300 Club. On the other hand, I do think it’s a favorable phase to go to extremes for an authentically good cause.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scientific research shows that if you arrange to get bitten by thousands of mosquitoes in a relatively short time, you make yourself immune. Forever after, mosquito bites won’t itch you. Now would be an excellent time for you to launch such a project. APRIL FOOL! I lied. I don’t really think you should do that. On the contrary. You should scrupulously avoid irritations and aggravations, especially little ones. Instead, immerse yourself in comfort and ease. Be as free from vexation as you have ever been!


AY 25TH — 5K RUN, 10K RU N & HALF MARAT Great post-race HON festivities & fabu lous goody bags REGISTER AT WW W.HAPPYGIRLSR UN.COM

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If allowed to do what comes naturally, two rabbits and their immediate descendants will produce 1,300 new rabbits in twelve months’ time. In five years, their offspring would amount to 94 million. I suspect that you will approach this level of fertility in the next four weeks, at least in a metaphorical sense. APRIL FOOL! I stretched the truth a bit. There’s no way you will produce more than a hundred good new ideas and productions and gifts. At the most, you’ll generate a mere 50.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The weather is warm year-round and the crime rate is low on Pitcairn, a remote South Pacific island that is a 30hour boat ride away from the nearest airport. The population has been dwindling in recent years, however, which is why the government offers foreigners free land if they choose to relocate. You might want to consider taking advantage of this opportunity. APRIL FOOL! I was exaggerating. It’s true that you could get major health benefits by taking a sabbatical from civilization. But there’s no need to be so drastic about it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You don’t have to run faster than the bear that’s chasing you. You just have to run faster than the slowest person the bear is chasing. OK? So don’t worry! APRIL FOOL! What I just said wasn’t your real horoscope. I hope you know me well enough to understand that I would NEVER advise you to save your own ass by betraying or sacrificing someone else. It’s also important to note that the bear I mentioned is entirely metaphorical in nature. So please ignore what I said earlier. However, I do want you to know that there are effective ways to elude the symbolic bear that are also honorable. To discover them, meditate on calming down the beastly bear-like qualities in yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Now is a favorable time to disguise yourself as a bland nerd with no vivid qualities, or a shy wallflower with no strong opinions, or a polite wimp who prefers to avoid adventure. Please don’t even consider doing anything that’s too interesting or controversial. APRIL FOOL! I lied. The truth is, I hope you’ll do the opposite of what I suggested. I think it’s time to express your deep authentic self with aggressive clarity. Be brave and candid and enterprising.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Kermit the Frog from Sesame Street is the world’s most famous puppet. He has recorded songs, starred in films and TV shows, and written an autobiography. His image has appeared on postage stamps and he has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Kermit’s beginnings were humble, however. When his creator Jim Henson first assembled him, he consisted of Henson’s mom’s green coat and two halves of a white ping pong ball. I mention this, Aries, because the current astrological omens suggest that you, too, could make a puppet that will one day have great influence. APRIL FOOL! I half-lied. Here’s the whole truth: now isn’t a favorable time to start work on a magnificent puppet. But it is a perfect moment to launch the rough beginnings of a project that’s well-suited for your unique talents.

About Those Benjamins

SAFE Banking Act could help decrease crime By Jeremy Dickman




Hannah Rehberg Follow @tokyo_starfish to find out more...

s a one-time partner at a law firm representing cannabis and hemp entrepreneurs, I faced many of the same challenges as my clients. In other law firms, you bill a client monthly, draw from that client’s trust account to cover your expenses and send an invoice to your client. Not so when you’re representing weed farmers. In the summer of 2017 (around 72 hours before the total solar eclipse swept across Central Oregon) I traveled three and a half hours to Medford to meet up with a client at a freeway-adjacent gas station. There, the client handed me a burlap shopping bag full of $30,000 cash. Having neither been a part of a bank heist nor the release of a billionaire’s kidnapped child, this was the most amount of cash I had ever seen at one time. It was certainly the greatest amount of cash I had ever personally been responsible for. For two days and nights, I was one fiery car wreck or vehicle break-in away from bankrupting our law firm, or at minimum, delaying paychecks and payments to vendors. After the pickup, I drove about 120 miles from Medford to Eugene (in solar-eclipse freeway traffic) to pick up my 5-year-old son from his grandparents, and then drove another 120 miles over the Santiam Pass to Bend. I did all of this with enough cash to pay off most of my student loans stored next to my spare tire and jack in the back of my Toyota 4Runner. For me, that was a rather nerve-wracking one-off. For cannabis entrepreneurs, that’s a weekly, or daily, experience. Marijuana continues to be classified by the federal government as among the most dangerous drugs in America; scheduled right alongside ecstasy and heroin, considered worse than fentanyl. Accordingly, banks that accept cash from marijuana farmers, processors or dispensaries could face money-laundering investigations, and lose their certification with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. While a select few credit unions in some anti-prohibition states will bank money from cannabis companies for a stiff monthly fee (usually starting at $500), they also frequently go months without accepting new clients. This is a problem for a cashheavy industry. All of that could change, however, if the Secure and Fair Enforcement Banking Act is eventually signed into law. Co-sponsored by over 100 members of Congress, the SAFE Act is

the most widely sponsored pro-marijuana bill to get into a House committee. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), chair of the House Financial Services Committee, scheduled the Act for markup March 26. If passed, it would allow banks in legal states to accept deposits from marijuana businesses operating within the legislative framework of their state’s rules. While a Democratic majority in the House made this possible, the bill still faces long odds of being considered in the Republican-controlled Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), a supporter of legal hemp, has been steadfastly anti-marijuana. If passed, it would be a game-changer. First, it would eliminate the sweaty-palmed fear faced by business owners who need to move a small fortune of Benjamins to Salem to pay state taxes. (Ironically, Oregon can legally accept marijuana tax money and bank it with U.S. Bank.) Second, it would reduce the risk of commingling unregulated-market funds with “legal” cash, allowing auditors to track its origins. (Still more irony: The banking prohibitions have exacerbated the effect of money laundering in the cannabis industry, accomplishing the very opposite of the federal government’s intent with this prohibition.) Finally, allowing a company to bank cash would allow consumers to pay with credit cards, and decrease the risk of robberies at dispensaries. That “criminal element” sparking fear among countless citizens who live nearby cannabis farms and dispensaries is largely a result of the stringent laws of which those same citizens approve. Right now, anyone who tries to rob a licensed cannabis farm, processor or dispensary in Oregon is basically asking for a lengthy prison sentence. Each Oregon Liquor Control Commission licensee must have commercial locks on all doors, and a state-of-the-art security system, including high-definition cameras that monitor every square inch of a licensed cannabis premises. As such, robbery attempts are rare, and successful robberies are unheard of. Still, the lure of tens of thousands in cold, hard cash stored within a dispensary will be ever-present until marijuana companies can operate like nearly every other business in the nation and bank their earnings. It may also get a few sweaty-palmed cannabis lawyers off of the road.
