Late last year, the folks at the Bend Chamber, along with myself and our publisher, Aaron Switzer, sat down for a meeting of the minds. We both had Women of the Year awards—so we wanted to explore merging our efforts into one. The Chamber has the backing and the name recognition in the business community. The Source has its reputation of being both entertainment and engine for social change. Could we meld the two into a competition that demonstrated our region’s growing diversity, business acumen and wonderful commitment to the common good? I think we did. I’d like to take a moment to thank Robin Rogers of the Bend Chamber. The Women of the Year awards has long been her “baby,” and I’m happy to have found a way to be foster parent for that baby this year. I’d also like to thank Erika McCalpine, the Source’s 2019 Woman of the Year, who graciously agreed to serve as a judge alongside me this year, and with whom the Source continues to partner on projects aimed at the community good. I’d also like to thank the rest of the judging panel: Aisha Ali, Bill Anderson, Emi Baxter, Deb Flagan, Connie Druliner, Wendy McGrane and Leah Ross for their fellowship and the many days spent rating the candidates and meeting with them to arrive at this year’s winners. And cheers to the many nominees—as Connie Druliner likes to say, you’re all winners!

Let’s get real about lady parts. Ladies, it’s not easy being us. From painful sex, pregnancy related back pain, to the occassional “leaking” when you laugh or run, Alpine Ph Physical Therapy’s Women’s Health Program can help you get back to experiencing your life, without all the li�le ��� surprises�

aybe it’s our Wild West mentality. Maybe it’s our sense of individuality and our can-do attitudes. Or maybe we’re just stuck in a system that has most of us on the hamster wheel, working to pay for housing that is more expensive than the wages our region currently supports. But whatever its origins, now is not the time to allow one’s bootstrap exceptionalism and overblown sense of perseverance to get in the way of common sense. As novel coronavirus begins to crop up in our state, now is the time to listen to the basic, yet potentially life-saving advice of public health officials: Stay home and avoid contact with others if you’re showing symptoms of cold or flu. Wash your hands frequently, for at least 20 seconds at a time, with soap. And call your doctor before you show up at their office, so that their staffs can plan for what to do when you arrive. These are very basic tenets, but it’s clear that many people aren’t following them. On Friday, Oregonians got the news that the state had seen its first “presumed case” of novel coronavirus. Within hours of the positive test results, the Oregon Health Authority, Gov. Kate Brown and other health officials were holding a press conference, alerting people to what they then knew. Within hours of that, a Lake Oswego school where the person with the virus worked had been declared closed for the better part of this week. Within days, two more people were discovered to have the virus in Oregon. And all during that time, people have gone about their business, bringing their coughs and sneezes into places where they shouldn’t be. No one has yet been confirmed to have novel coronavirus in Central Oregon, but since the first three cases were contracted by people who hadn’t recently traveled to the most affected countries, Oregon epidemiologists believe there are far more

people who have the virus than we know about right now. That means that the cough you now have could very well be one of the other garden-variety versions… or it could be IT, and your co-workers don’t want you to gamble on whether it’s one or the other. We know that in Central Oregon, there are too many people out there who are rent-burdened and forced to work multiple jobs just to pay the bills. Similarly, there are too many people for whom health care costs are out of control—for whom a high-deductible plan seemed like a good way to “get coverage” and avoid government fines at tax time, but for whom now, seeing a doctor is yet another expense, and paying out of pocket toward that high deductible is yet another burden. There are many others whose childcare coverage is spotty, at best, and for whom pulling a kid out of school means missing more work themselves. And yet, staying home and avoiding exposing other people is still the right thing to do. Taking sick time won’t necessarily result in paid time off, but Oregon law dictates that employees get the time to heal. As Oregon Labor Commissioner Val Hoyle pointed out in a press release Monday: “Your employer must pay you your regular wage when you take sick time if they have more than 10 employees (6 or more in Portland). Otherwise, sick time is unpaid but still protected.” Oregonians get at least one hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours they work, Hoyle wrote. Employees can start taking paid sick time after they’ve worked for an employer for at least three months. Oregon is one of just 10 states with paid sick leave laws. As coronavirus spreads to Oregon, it’s important to listen to the advice of health experts: Cover coughs and sneezes. Call the doctor before you go in. And stay home if you’re sick. You live in a state where you have the right to do so.

believe you are correct in stating that the sedimentation of Mirror Pond has stabilized and I also believe that the dire consequences presented by Mirror Pond Solutions are grossly exaggerated. —Mark Davis, via I agree with Mr. Davis. As proposed, this dredging project would remove, at most, only 17% of the total sediment load of Mirror Pond. Sedimentation would resume--and at a more rapid rate than present--as soon as dredging ends. The goal of “reducing the frequency or quantity of future sediment removal efforts” is magical thinking, as long as the dam exists and upstream bank erosion continues (due to destructive irrigation practices). Clearly, under current conditions, dredging is futile and a fool’s errand. It’s hardly a responsible investment of millions of dollars of public funds. Why, then, the push for dredging by the local power elite? The answer might be found in e-mails released by the Park District: On Aug. 17, 2015, then Parks legal counsel Neil Bryant acknowledged that one of the Mirror Pond Solutions owners “wants to get this [dredging] done before the [endangered spotted] frog reaches the Mirror Pond.” Instead of scraping it away with dredging, why not let wetland habitat evolve in Mirror Pond, as Parks Director Mendez suggests, just as it has emerged upstream from the Colorado St. dam in the Mill District? Next time you cross that bridge, take note of the delightful habitat below and take inspiration in the feeling that Bend could do even more to restore a member of the globally threatened amphibian class. —Foster Fell, via

RE: GET IT RIGHT WITH CAP AND INVEST, OPINION, 2/20 The Source claims in “Get it Right with Cap and Invest” that “…cramming the issue into a short session…may not be the right move.” Such a sentiment only offers political cover to forces that stand in complete opposition to any cap and invest bill. HB2020 was years in the making, amply analyzed and vetted. Knowing they lacked

the votes to defeat it in the last legislative session, Republicans walked out, preventing a quorum and guaranteeing that the bill could not pass. SB 1530 is a compromise, softening some aspects of the original bill, with Republican input, in an attempt to convince them not to bolt in the short session, and at least allow something useful to pass. However, Republicans and their Koch-supported Timber Unity allies have no intention of allowing any meaningful cap and invest program to become law. When the bill was due to come up for a vote this past week, they bolted again, refusing to show up for work. If they had any real desire to address the effects of greenhouse gas emissions on our climate, they would have worked with Democrats to pass the bill; or at the very least, they would not have boycotted the session once again. Instead, their goal is to prevent a vote in the legislature, insisting that the next step should be a direct ballot referendum. Then they can pour millions into defeating it, as they did in Washington and Colorado in 2018. Perhaps one reason why Oregon has a Democratic majority is because most voters want issues like greenhouse gas emissions addressed in a substantive manner. They want their legislature to deal with the problem squarely and begin to at least try to mitigate the damage that is already evident and will most certainly worsen in the coming years. The Republican work stoppage is nothing less than a blatant attempt to subvert democratic institutions from functioning as they

were intended. Unfortunately for all of us, it is working. And opinion columns insisting that more time is needed provides absolutely no incentive for them to get back to work, and only reinforces their obstructionism. —Pete Perry

Letter of the Week:

Pete: While that opinion piece was penned before the walkouts, and its premise was that the short session may have not been the time to tackle such a contentious thing, I’m awarding you the letter of the week in the interest of fostering respectful dialogue and a commitment to that type of conversation, even when the road gets rocky and/or the various sides don’t entirely agree. This, of course, is another iteration of what we’re seeing NOT happen in the Oregon Legislature right now. Come on in for your gift card to Palate! —Nicole Vulcan

Bend would be so boring without some annual Mirror Pond excitement. Now, as described in the Source 2/27 Issue, it appears that the City and Parks Department are committing to paying the lion’s share of the money necessary for dredging the Pond. Many of the bulleted goals in the article (a fish ladder, enhancing habitat, connecting the DR Trail, making the Pond function more like a river while retaining the Pond in its near historic condition—whatever that means) are laudable. Still, it all seems pretty expensive to me. The price tag for the dredging alone is conservatively estimated at $6.7 million, and of course Taylor Northwest (one of the primary proponents of the project) wants the contract to do the work. Does this mean they will give the City a screaming deal on the dredging or are they just hoping to get a sizable contract for a relatively minor investment? That’s certainly a question that needs an answer and it would have been nice for them to have responded to your inquiries for the article. Another question involves PacificCorp’s financial involvement or lack thereof. Since it is their dam and they are making money off a public resource it seems that they should at the very least participate in cost sharing for the project. As an alternative to the City’s proposed funding options, I have another idea. Why not just let the Pond continue to fill with sediment? At some point in the near future the reservoir capacity will become sufficiently reduced until it significantly affects PacificCorp’s generating capacity. When that time comes, they will be forced to either: dredge the pond themselves, contribute significantly in a cost share or abandon the dam and restore the river channel similar to what they did at Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Washington. Seems like a win either way for the City. —Dean Grover

The Year of the Midwife By Laurel Brauns


he World Health Assembly, the governing body of the World Health Organization, has designated 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, in hopes of advancing nurses’ and midwives’ position in health care. Giving birth to a child in the U.S. is expensive. Even with insurance, hospital delivery alone averages $4,500 in out-ofpocket expenses, according to The Atlantic. But home births attended by midwives could save money for both the health care system and for families if they were more widely supported, according to a study published last month and co-authored by Missy Cheyney, associate professor at Oregon State University. Home births also offer families the opportunity to give birth in a familiar atmosphere and at a natural pace. “I have some clients that come to me and tell me that they had a horrible experience at the hospital; that they felt rushed, and that they could have avoided a crazy outcome like a cesarean if they had just stayed at home and been left alone [to give birth at their own pace],” said Allegra Lilly, one of six licensed home birth midwives in Central Oregon. “Some births take two days, but hospitals may get crowded… A lot of labors get artificially pushed along with inductions that could lead to cesareans.” One out of three mothers gives birth via a cesarean section in the U.S. Women who begin their childbirth process at home or in a birthing center usually have only a 5-7% chance of a cesarean, Cheyney wrote.

But not all mothers are appropriate candidates for homebirths and midwives carefully screen their clients throughout the prenatal, postpartum and newborn care periods for risk factors requiring hospitalization. Oregon State law prevents mothers with certain illnesses from accessing midwifery care, such as people with liver disease, substance abuse disorder (with negative effects) and mothers who have pregnancies that last more than a few weeks past the due date. Home births or “community births” attended by trained midwives are more common in Oregon than other states: Oregon ranks third highest in the nation for density of midwives and midwife-attended births per capita, according to an article published by Plos One in the National Institutes of Health data base. Midwifery is one of the oldest female professions, documented in the “Ebers Papyrus” from Egypt in 1900 B.C. Today, midwifery is much more common outside of the U.S. According to Cheyney, a majority of pregnancies in peer nations are attended by a midwife. Meanwhile, 98.4% of U.S. births occur in hospitals, with 0.5% of births in birthing centers and 1% at home. Only 11% of births are attended by midwives. St. Charles Medical Center in Bend employs five certified nurse midwives. Patients on the Oregon Health Plan can work with one of them if they choose, according to Lisa Goodman, public information officer for St. Charles. The U.S. spends more on maternity care than any other county in the

level of expertise between an OB-GYN and a nurse. They travel to home births equipped with hospital equipment ranging from IV fluids and oxygen to anti-hemorrhagic medication and antibiotics. Lilly said her “transport rate,” where she must take her clients to the hospital, is under 2%. Cheyney argues that it is imperative that the U.S. make midwives, birthing centers and home births more accessible in all communities. This will help to lower health care costs, increase access to care in underserved communities, reduce complications from unnecessary interventions (like cesareans) and provide an experience that is better matched to some families’ needs. “Community births may also have the potential to provide respectful care that is more flexible and attuned to cultural and personal values, especially when pregnant people are matched with a midwife who comes from their own community and speaks their language,” Cheyney wrote in an email to the Source. “We should not separate the outcomes of care from the experience of care,” Cheyney wrote. “How we treat mothers matters as much as the clinical outcome, and we have lost track of that in some places.”

Home births attended by midwives could save health systems money, as well as offer a more personalized experience for some mothers

By Carolina Pilara

world—approximately $110 billion every year—yet is has the worst outcomes among peer countries for both mothers and newborns, according to Cheyney’s study. Despite the lower cost of home births, access to midwives or a natural birthing center is limited because insurance companies do not fully support it. Insurance companies such as PacificSource list midwifery as “alternative care.” This conventional perspective sees the birthing process as dangerous, requiring hospitalization. Some private insurance companies provide “out-of-network” coverage for licensed midwives that cover an average of 30-40% of the cost, according to Lilly, who manages her own business. Bend Birth Center, for example, lists the costs of prenatal care, labor, delivery and six weeks of postpartum care for the mother and baby at $5,000. If a family wants to give birth at the center, it charges $2,600 for the mother and $1,200 for the baby for each 12-hour period they’re there. Lilly explained that it’s difficult to get reimbursed through OHP, so most local midwives choose not to accept it. But Lilly does offer discounts to mothers with OHP and has an economically diverse client base. “I have some clients that are socioeconomically depressed and can barely pay me. Others live in mansions in Bend,” Lilly said. Some mothers may worry that midwives attending home births might not be equipped to deal with life or death situations. Statistics from Oregon in 2012 show the death rate for babies in planned home births was seven times that of births in the hospital. St. Charles Medical Center provides a hybrid situation at the Bend Family Birthing Center, with a homey atmosphere, Jacuzzi tubs and a “soothing and joyful environment,” with a range of medical professionals (including midwives) and life-saving equipment at arm’s length, according to its website. But all the midwives practicing in Central Oregon, including Lilly, have a

Coronavirus Comes to Oregon Central Oregon agencies mobilize in anticipation of the arrival of COVID-19 in the region—and in hopes of preventing its spread


t’s not lost on me that as I write this, the information contained herein could be outdated by the time the press delivers the print version to our newsroom. As representatives from the Deschutes County public health team said Monday, the situation is “changing hourly.” So it goes with the developing situation that is novel coronavirus, which state health officials confirmed Feb. 28 had hit Oregon. As of Tuesday, three people in the state have “presumed cases” of COVID-19, the virus first identified in China in late December. The Oregon State Public Health Laboratory in Hillsboro was certified to process COVID-19 tests Feb. 28. Just hours later, it confirmed its first “presumed positive” case. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta has to confirm that and the other cases before officials can say they’re 100% confirmed. At a press conference Feb. 28, officials from the Oregon Health Authority said the Oregonian with the first presumed case had not recently traveled to China nor any other of the countries affected by novel coronavirus. Neither had the other two Oregonians who subsequently tested positive. Because of that, epidemiologists believe that many more people in Oregon have the virus than they’re currently aware of. Meanwhile, nine people have died in Washington from COVID-19. As the situation continues to result in more questions than answers, the Oregon Health Authority and other public health officials are underlining the basics of prevention: Stay home if you have a cough or

fever. Wash your hands thoroughly and often. Cover your coughs and sneezes, preferably with a tissue, and then throw the tissue away. And before going to the doctor, call the office so they can take steps to protect their own teams, should it turn out you have the virus. Central Oregon’s Response A room crammed with computers and long tables in the basement of the Bend-La Pine Schools Administration Building in downtown Bend serves as a command center for community incidents like this. County, city, school and other officials convene the Joint Incident Center—nicknamed “the JIC”—when they’re dealing with a community issue that requires a coordinated response. The local JIC—a concept originally developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to foster information sharing in communities—has been opened twice in the last three years: once during the heavy snowfall of 2017, and again during the Great American Eclipse that same year, said Ron Paradis, executive director of college relations at Central Oregon Community College and the local JIC’s deputy. The Central Oregon Emergency Information Network—which includes Deschutes County Health Services, St. Charles Health System, the City of Bend, local law enforcement and fire, BendLa Pine Schools, Deschutes County, Crook County and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Offices and others, opened the JIC to collect, coordinate and distribute timely and

accurate information about COVID-19. Thus far, the message is the same as that of state officials: prevention is key. JIC members began planning for the advent of COVID-19 last month, said Julianne Repman, JIC manager and director of communication and safety at Bend-La Pine Schools. “We don’t have a public health crisis in this community at this moment; we have an information crisis,” Repman said, saying that too much false information that’s not accurate or clear is being spread via social media. Monday’s meeting included updates from various agencies about their plans to prevent and manage novel coronavirus. Repmann detailed how local schools are working to ramp up and share messaging around preventing illnesses, including flu. Schools will start to see more signage asking students and staff to wash their hands when they arrive or leave. If someone contracts the virus in the local area, additional measures might include having students refrain from serving their own food in self-service areas, Repman said. “The custodians are working extra hours right now to clean up all those high-touch areas,” Repman said. “We know that schools have a significant financial impact additionally on the community when they’re closed, so we’re doing everything we can to keep everybody healthy, including asking people to stay home if they have a fever over 105.” Representatives from local law enforcement, including Bend Police and the Deschutes County Sheriff’s office, also detailed Monday how they’re reviewing best practices with duty officers, and those working with inmates at the Deschutes County Adult Jail. Bend Fire and other first responders have received training in using the proper protective gear. Local 911 operators have been given a script to help them identify people who may have the potential to carry the virus, said Patricia Connelly, administration battalion chief for Bend Fire and Rescue.


Sgt. William Bailey of the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office gives a briefing regarding COVID-19 and the county jail Monday night.

St. Charles Initiates New Protocols Global supply chain disruptions attributed to coronavirus have caused health centers, including St. Charles Medical Center, to experience issues obtaining additional N95 masks and other personal protective gear, Lisa Goodman, public information officer for St. Charles said Monday—however, the health system had already stocked up on 10,000 extra masks when they began to learn more about COVID-19 in January, Goodman said. On Tuesday, St. Charles announced new protocols aimed at prevention. Each facility now has a limited number of access points. When someone comes in, they’re required to sanitize their hands, and to wear a mask if they’re arriving with a fever, cough or cold symptoms. Visitors may not be granted access if they’re not seeking medical care. “We may not allow people into the building if they could spread infection, but are not in need of medical attention,” read a press release from COEIN Tuesday. COEIN’s website, coemergencyinfo. offers up-to-date information for the local area. Community members can also call 211 for general information and questions. Also check out the websites of the CDC and Oregon Health Authority to answer frequently answered questions and more.

WOMEN'S ISSUE The Source Weekly has had a Women’s Issue for as long as we can remember. It’s our place to highlight some of the many stories of Central Oregon women doing important work—but this year, a new partnership sought to amplify women’s voices even further. The Source partnered with the Bend Chamber—which has had its own Women of the Year awards for the past six years—for one awesome collaboration. Through this partnership, the Chamber saw a record number of nominations, including many people from diverse backgrounds—evidence of the power of a nomination process open to all community members, and the power of getting the word out far and wide. From there, the judging process included written nominations and acceptance forms, a rating system, and a personal interview with each nominee. While every nominee was deserving of their respective awards (see their names, published in the web version of this story!), the winners blew our hair back. Take a moment to learn more about the winners of the Bend Chamber/Source Weekly’s Women of the Year awards. Couldn’t we all use a little inspiration right now?!




Jesse Durham of Sisters Coffee once ran a marathon to raise funds to help an all-women coffee co-op improve production

Stories By Nicole Vulcan Photos By Megan Baker


esse Durham is a co-owner of Sisters Coffee Company—a brand started by her parents, Winfield and Joy Durham, in Sisters in 1989. Today, Jesse and her two brothers are at the helm of the company, which operates cafes in Sisters and Portland, as well as a wholesale business roasting and packaging 300,000 pounds of coffee per year. Last year, Jesse spearheaded an effort to convert their coffee bags to a new, biodegradable packaging made from sugar cane and wood pulp. For the company’s 30th anniversary, Jesse designed and launched a coffee blend of which 10% of profits go to Partnership for Gender Equity. She also spearheaded the launch of Grow Together—an effort to make coffee and its supply chain more accessible to all who love the drink. Jesse’s tenacity in the business space and her commitment to women’s empowerment were just a couple of the reasons the judges recognized her for the Woman of the Year award.

Durham described to me how in 2015, she discovered that the Nyampinga Women’s Cooperative, an all-women co-op in Rwanda, was spending excessive amounts of time hauling water from a river to its coffee washing station—holding the co-op back economically. Durham decided to raise funds for the co-op by signing up for the 2016 Kigali International Peace Marathon in Kigali, Rwanda, teaming up with 10 Barrel’s Portland location to craft a coffee beer as a fundraiser. The funds raised went toward obtaining a water pump that would deliver clean water to the co-op’s washing station. That had a huge impact on the co-op, but also local customers. As she described, “For Sisters Coffee, one of the huge wins in that whole campaign and fundraiser was, we had a little jar out front that said, ‘hey, help the co-op get a washing station—and that was a helpful tool because it got the customers thinking.” Here’s more from our interview with Jesse Durham:

Source Weekly: I like to give every woman nominated in these awards, firstly, the opportunity to name someone who’s impacted their own life. Who’s that person for you? Jesse Durham: The first person who comes to mind is my mom. She has this larger-than-life personality and it's one of those warm, jovial compassionate personalities that other people around her are really impacted by, but she’s just being her. SW: During the interview I was intrigued by your description of the connection with the farms you work with. Can you share a bit more about that? JD: This is my favorite part about coffee—the supply chain—I think mostly because there’s so much that we can do. Sisters Coffee is a small business, but there’s so much impact that we can have with the coffee that we buy, so it’s really cool when you go travel to these countries to see how much it matters to them that we’re buying their coffee, and our feedback on the coffee matters to them.

SW: What does being nominated for Woman of the Year mean to you? JD: It’s a huge honor. I think growing up in Central Oregon and seeing how Central Oregon has grown since I was a kid in the 1990s, and to see the direction that it has moved—Central Oregon has become such an incredible community throughout the course of my life and so many talented people have moved to Central Oregon because they want to live here. And they bring in a whole host of expertise and skill sets that I admire, and I aspire to cultivate in my own life, and so to be nominated for woman of the year, just makes me feel very honored that I get to be part of that community. I think it inspires me to ask myself, well, how can I get more involved? When I was at the interview [with the judge’s panel] I was looking across the room, and I was like, 'gosh, I want to be a leader.' I feel like in many ways I am a leader in the community, but it just begs the question, what more can I do? How can I get more involved?


Angie Acevedo, now a student at COCC, made a name for herself at Bend High, where she advocated for immigrants and people experiencing poverty Here’s what else Young Hero Angie Acevedo had to say. Source Weekly: Is there someone in your life you’d like to acknowledge? Angie Acevedo: My mom. My parents… my mom came here when she was 17, and I have just so much respect for them. Everyone has their own struggles and I understand that— right now, for me, going through college and transitioning from everything that high school… I tell her sometimes that I feel like I can’t do it, that I want to drop out… but it’s just crazy—my parents came here with nothing and they made this whole life for me and my siblings. I have a lot of respect for my parents because they made it really clear to us not to be angry for the situations we have to go through—not to be angry and to appreciate the opportunities that we have. SW: You mentioned growing up between two cultures. What do you see winning this award meaning to other people who may have a similar life story? AA: It’s just really hard growing up between two cultures, especially the ones I had to grow up in—they don’t always welcome each other. It’s kind of sad to see, because you love both of your cultures and you don’t want to have to choose. A lot of kids struggle with issues of identity because they don’t know how

to deal with it. Like sometimes they feel like they have to choose a side. When I’m here in the United States, I feel like I’m not from here. When I go to Mexico to visit my family, I have an accent and I didn’t grow up there, so I’m not from there, either. It’s like you’re not really from anywhere but you’re from both places at the same time. It’s really confusing—and I hope I would be a role model, because it’s really hard to grow up like that and it hits some kids harder than others, and I just hope I can be an example that you can do something good. SW: Who is someone you look up to— someone you don’t personally know? AA: Martin Luther King, Junior. My graduation announcements had a quote from him: “Use me God, show me to take who I am, what I want to be and use it for a purpose greater than myself.” For me, when I read that quote, it reminded me to use the opportunities that you have here—use the voice that you have, because you can speak up. Everyone’s always like, ‘everyone has a voice,’ and it’s true—but the reality is, not everyone is hurt the same. I feel like I do have some privilege. When last year there was a march downtown to keep the families together at the border, my parents really wanted to go and their friends really wanted to go too, but they were scared because they don’t have documents— the kind of stuff like that, I should speak up for other people.


SW: What do you hope for other women in our community? AA: I hope we all get empowered in our own way, because, like how I grew up—there’s a lot of machismo in the Hispanic cultures. I’ve talked to my parents about it—it’s not like they want it to be like that, but that’s how they were raised. A lot of Hispanic households, the girls have to do all the housework—that’s how I see it, mostly. We’re in a really good community that will support us, and there’s no reason to fear doing something bigger. We have a really good community behind us, and we should appreciate that.


Karina Smith, a believer in the power of challenges to push people forward in Medicine nominated Smith, who describes herself as a bicultural, bilingual Latina from Argentina. “I seek opportunities to empower, support, and help navigate systems and provide opportunities to grow,” told the Source. “I believe that I cannot do the work by myself. I believe in collaboration and the fruit that comes out of collective thinking.” Here’s more of what Smith said when we sat down with her.


new category in the Bend Chamber’s awards this year, the Advancing Women category is intended to highlight the work of a person of any gender, working to advance the role of women in the community. The winner is Karina Smith, an educator working to promote equity through her role as Director of Regional Migrant Education at High Desert Education Service District. A representative of Volunteers

Source Weekly: Who is a woman who inspires you? Karina Smith: My mom, Mirta, has so many struggles she still faces almost every day, but despite those she is still looking forward—seeing the battles as opportunities to learn and that we need to take that with the grace of every day. Those are not things we need to dwell upon, but we need to learn from it so we can bounce back and face things differently. SW: What does being nominated for the Advancing Women award mean to you? KS: Being nominated, for me, is more about—well, I just want to pull

back more to the people who inspire me every day. I don’t own that; it was the people who inspired me, motivated me, taught me, offered me challenges and opportunities, so it was an opportunity to continue moving forward. I am honored, and humble, because I feel that many other women could be seen in this chair, in this position. SW: Can you talk a little bit about the people you serve at your job? KS: I was nominated through Volunteers in Medicine, and I work at the High Desert ESD as the director of the Migrant program. The program serves students and families seeking to achieve the education to finish high school. We provide support and opportunities to the students. Each parent that comes in through the door deserves to know that they are in a safe place so they can hear themselves—where their voices can be amplified and also where they have an opportunity to experience what a system of change looks like for them. SW: What do you think the Central Oregon community could do better to support or welcome immigrants?

KS: I believe that Central Oregon—we have different communities, and each community has their own culture. But to all serve our families—and I can testify from my experiences—[we need] an acknowledging; a celebration of differences. SW: What challenges do you find among LatinX women that you hope to help overcome? KS: My [PhD] dissertation is about Latinas and leadership and intersectionality. One of the challenges is, as I continue in my research, is that Latina women have a culture that is part of their own identity. Family is important for Latina women, and when leadership and family come, Latina women have challenges navigating different cultures. The American culture and the LatinX culture, I found that for many reasons, as long as Latinas have the support of their families Latinas will be able to achieve. But it is important to identify, who is the group that is holding it together, and when actually you are in doubt or you are concerned about how to move to the next step, who is believing in you? Who is working with you? Continued on page 11



ast spring, Angie Acevedo gave the senior speech in front of her graduating class at Bend Senior High School—the first person from a Hispanic background to do so in the 110+ years of commencement ceremonies at the school. Born in Los Angeles, Acevedo and her family moved to Bend when she was two years old. At BSHS, Acevedo established a reputation as a strong student—graduating with honors—as well as an advocate for immigrant families and those experiencing poverty. Now age 19, Acevedo is a student at Central Oregon Community College (along with her older sister) and hopes to pursue a career in human services or politics. Morgan Davis, dean of students at BSHS, nominated Acevedo for the Young Hero award, saying this in a letter he wrote to colleges on her behalf: “This passion to create equity in our community has led Angie to be the Vice President of our Cross Cultural Club, where she helped to create the mission and vision statement. Angie has spearheaded projects such as writing Senators and House Representatives to protect the rights of DACA, advocating for changes in gun control, and reached out to students who do not feel connected by bringing them to the Cross Cultural Club.” Acevedo also advocated against “period poverty,” in Bend-La Pine Schools, attending a school board meeting and requesting the district offer free feminine products at local schools.

A Community Hero, supporting LatinX families through the JUNTOS program


Source Weekly: Is there someone you’d like to recognize in the community? Ruth Jones: I wouldn’t even know where to start! I have so many of them, but for me, the women I would highlight would be the moms in the community—las mamas—our Latina moms, for their strength and their courage. Doing this work has exposed me to the moms that have three jobs that are doing the single mom life.

Those are things that we don’t talk about—no es parte de la cultura—to even bring those up and elevate. And we have a lot of incredible women, so I don’t have just one! I do want to add to the story that the young lady celebrated [this year’s Young Hero winner], Angie Acevedo, was a former JUNTOS participant. And how cool it was for her parents to attend this event to celebrate her accomplishments. Full circle was seen in one evening and in one event. SW: What does the term “community hero” mean to you? RJ: I can’t identify. I can’t. Because I don’t see myself in that role. I know what a hero means to me, and for me, my hero is my dad and I think I said this in the interview with the whole team, but I feel like I’m just doing my job, but what that means is just standing up and having courage. People that are creating the path for those of us to walk through, and before me there were other people. For me to now be able to enter schools, somebody had to have gone before me and broken down the barriers and said, ‘OK, now this program is coming in.’ Going back to what a community hero is, it’s those people that come back to retrieve the rest of us, and say, I didn’t forget about you. I see you. And

to be seen is so critically important in this very, very white community. SW: Can you talk a little more about your dad? RJ: Mi Papá, Patrocinio Galvan Cadena, just everything from his name to his journey… to what every immigrant wants when they come into the U.S. It’s not the stigma of ‘we’re bad people,’ it’s, ‘we want better.’ And he had the opportunity to come to the U.S. through the Bracero program in 1954. My dad sadly only lived to be 55 because of, I am guessing, all of the trauma he went through. Farm worker. Through and through, never stopped. We lived in the San Joaquin Valley from beginning to end of this beautiful journey for my parents. The place of the Cesar Chavez movement in Delano, California, is where my dad passed away—so even that, just an incredible story to tell. SW: What does this award mean to you? RJ: It means legacy. It means being able to tell his story. It’s humbling. But I think it’s an opportunity to say what isn’t being said. The stories. Every family has got one. And what we don’t say, what we sugarcoat to try and fit in to this culture, and how does that transform our kids, and to come


back and say, it’s OK that you recognize and honor what your parents did for you. This gives that opportunity, because I never got the chance to say that to my dad. Each of the women nominated are modeling what we should all be doing, every single day. I am extremely humbled and grateful for the recognition. I look forward to events like this celebrating all diversities and am thankful that U.S. Bank [a sponsor and presenter at the awards] sent the message of priority around the work of DEI [diversity, equity and inclusion] in our community.


The Lifetime Achievement winner has had a remarkable career—but her passion lies in teaching and servant leadership


ifetime Achievement winner Lawnae Hunter has had a successful career in real estate-related activities. The real estate company she led in California had five offices and 300 sales people before she sold it in 2003. Today, she’s the owner of PLUS Property Management and the chair of the Oregon Real Estate Agency—a governor’s appointment—but more importantly for Hunter is her

co-founding of Stroke Awareness Oregon, a locally based nonprofit focused on educating people to recognize the signs of stroke, after suffering one herself five years ago. “I believe in the concept of servant leadership,” Hunter told the Source. “Those are the principles with which we should live our lives… by empowering others without a lot of recognition for ourselves; quietly helping people advance in their endeavors. “I was fortunate to have the success I had in business,” she said. “I have always believed I am in the people business, and I have always thought of myself as a teacher and love that part of my life.” Here’s more from our conversation with Hunter (who was also the Source’s Woman of the Year in 2011.) Source Weekly: Is there someone in your life or in the community that you’d like to recognize? Lawnae Hunter: I would recognize Carol Stiles for the enormous contributions that she’s made to this community over her lifetime—starting with initiating the Head Start program.

SW: What does being nominated for the Lifetime Achievement award mean to you? LH: Humbled. Certainly proud, and a responsibility to do a really good job—in that category, to blaze the path for other women that are coming up those ranks. SW: Since your career has largely centered around housing, what concerns you about our housing market in Central Oregon? LH: The one thing that probably concerns me the most is that our wages are out of sync with the cost of housing. The other thing is that because of the need for housing in Oregon, we’ve got this government intervention in the housing market, thinking that solutions to keeping costs down are rent control, when in reality that’s the opposite. The solutions to creating housing options are getting the cost of housing down and providing a variety of different types of housing. SW: What do you hope for the women in our community? LH: My hope for the women in our community would be that they would not be immobilized by fear of moving

forward. What I’ve seen with women in all different aspects is a lot of fear immobilizes them from getting more education, working toward that job, upward mobility and taking risks in business. So, I would hope they could learn to manage their fear but be able to push through it. SW: Do you ever see yourself retiring, and what is retirement for you? LH: Great question, and something that is discussed in my family frequently. As we age, one of the most important things people need to do is remain engaged with the world. Too many people think that their dream is to go fishing or to see the world. They retire, they disconnect from the world and all of a sudden, their worlds are pretty small and they’ve given up so many of the relationships that nurtured them. So, I believe I will always probably work in some way. Now, I understand that as I age, that will change, and really what I’m doing now is probably an indication of that. I’m doing more public service, which isn’t really work, but it keeps me engaged with the world. As far as traditional retirement, where I hang up my shingle, no, I don’t see that.


uth Jones works for Oregon State University’s Open Campus as a Latino Program Coordinator for an underserved population, in addition to serving on numerous nonprofit boards. She describes her job as one that “is truly rewarding.” The program she works for, “JUNTOS,” means “Together” in English, and is in every middle and high school in the region. Jones and JUNTOS help families understand the educational system and give them knowledge of post-secondary instruction, using the families’ native language, Spanish. Jones said the program sees a 100% graduation rate for every participating student, with 92% continuing onto post-secondary education of some sort. Parts of our conversation took place in Spanish.

Two-Thirds Joseph

Natalie and Allison Closner dish on their latest album, women in music and the dynamic of being sisters in a band By Isaac Biehl


Louis Browne

ortland’s Joseph is a powerhouse trio of sisters, tackling a range of rock, pop, folk, R&B and everything in between. Natalie, Allison and Meegan Closner are currently in full-swing tour mode, celebrating the release of the group’s third studio album, “Good Luck, Kid.” As Natalie and Allison were getting out of a Lyft, we hopped on the phone. While Meegan wasn’t able to join in on the conversation, her two sisters had plenty of great things to say about the secret comedian in the family. The sisters of Joseph work as mechanics in their free time. This may or may not be true.

Source Weekly: Listening to “Good Luck Kid,” I noticed you’re dipping your toes into a lot of styles. You have songs like “Presence,” which is very rock, and then “Enough in Your Eyes” is this ambient R&B song. Was that something you were focused on when recording, or are you now just more comfortable expanding your sound? Natalie: I think we just wanted to serve the songs. Every song is different in the production and we wanted to just dress them up in the clothes they should wear. And we love all kinds of different music— so it was just really exciting to take it to a broader pallet than we have in the past. SW: Looking back to when you released “Native Dreamer Kin,” to now, how do you think you have grown as a band, or even as sisters? Are those things intertwined? Natalie: Totally intertwined. 100%. Allison: When we did “Native Dreamer Kin,” we’d been kind of making music for a little bit but not that long really. “Native Dreamer Kin” was

like the first major collective thing we’d done. Meegan and I were really brand new at it; we had only recorded one thing before it and we were just backup vocals. It was a big learning curve for Meegan and I, and since then I feel like we’re all a bit more seasoned at making records and whatnot, but we’re all just better friends now, too. SW: This interview is part of our Women’s Issue. What other female artists or bands you think deserve some more recognition? Allison: I’m always listening to Japanese House. I love their music. This girl Taylor Janzen just put out a song called “What I Do” and I really like that. Natalie: The new Brittany Howard album is absolutely amazing! They’re about to release an album, but the band that we’re touring with, Deep Sea Diver, is absolutely unbelievable. Jessica Dobson is the lead guitarist, and it’s her project. She’s really exciting to watch.

SW: What are some things the music industry needs to work on in regard to representation, equal pay, opportunity or other issues in regard to female artists? Natalie: I think there needs to be more initiatives and opportunities to get women in the studio. Engineering sessions, doing more production work. I think that’s a huge part of the industry that’s really missing a female presence. I think it’s just starting to pick up. SW: Being an all-female group, have you ever experienced any troubles with those things? Natalie: Troubles? Oh gosh. Allison: One thing I think a lot of women find hard when playing shows is speaking to the sound engineers at the venues. I think a lot of women get spoken down to because people don’t think they know what they’re talking about with their guitar or whatever. I’ve seen that with some of our opening bands. SW: I wanted to close out with some bonus sister questions, sort of like

superlatives. I know Meegan’s not here to defend herself or answer, but I think you can still do it. Who would you say is the life of the party? Natalie: Usually it’d be me, but I feel like I’m becoming an old woman. [laughs] Allison: It depends on different scenarios. If you’re talkin’ like with a bunch of strangers? Natalie is 1000% the life of the party. If it’s a lot of closer people I think I can teeter into that zone. Meegan is a really good buddy. She’s so, so funny. But most people don’t see that part. I honestly think she might be the funniest one out of all of us. SW: Well that’s funny, because my next question is who would be the best standup comedian? Allison: MEEE! Natalie: I’m saying Allie. Allison: Although I don’t think I’d ever have the guts to do that. That’s one of the scariest jobs alive. If you don’t get people laughing you’ve totally failed. SW: Who would be the most likely to crowd surf during a show? Allison: Natalie! Hands down. Natalie: [Laughing] Ohhh, someday! Allison: Meegan never would. She doesn’t really like being touched by people she doesn’t know. SW: Yeah—that’s fair!  Joseph w/ Erin Cole-Baker and Evan Thomas Sun., March 8, 7pm Tower Theatre 835 NW Wall St., Bend $39-$110



These Ladies Rock

Central Oregon’s upcoming shows, highlight women in music


By Isaac Biehl


Catch Alicia Viani at the Belfry on April 11.


n incredible showing of women in music is coming to Central Oregon this year—so much so that you could be out supporting these artists basically every week over the next few months. Alongside Joseph (see our other Sound story this week), here’s a roundup of some shows to get on your radar—but be sure to check our calendar regularly to get acquainted with the many talented local and visiting female-led acts we’ll see throughout the rest of the year. 3/5 – Blossom at The Suttle Lodge Based in Portland, Blossom is one of the absolute best R&B singers in all of the Pacific Northwest. Do not miss the chance to see one of our state’s most blooming artists in an intimate setting. Check out her debut album “Maybe” to get a sneakpeek at what her performance can bring. 3/8 – Ballroom Thieves at Volcanic Theatre Pub 3/11 – Olivia Harms at Brasada Ranch 3/18 – Kacy & Clayton at The Belfry The Kacy half of Kacy & Clayton has a set of vocals that are wrapped like a velvety dream. You might be familiar with this duo if you happened to see them at last year’s Sisters Folk Festival. And if you are, I know you’ll be back for more.

3/21 – Royal Jelly Jive at Volcanic Theater Pub 3/26 – Amenta Abioto w/ Bryson Cone and D’DAT Memphis-born, Portland-based singer Amenta Abioto is a special talent. Her unique instrumental loops and vocal work make for a one-of-a-kind listening experience. Just last year she performed at TedxMtHood, released her first music video with “Plant It,” and is sure to be rising even more in 2020.

? David Guarraia, MD St. Charles Heart and Lung Center

4/9 – Sierra Hull at Sisters High School 4/11 – Alicia Viani Album Release at The Belfry For last year’s Women’s Issue, I interviewed Viani about heading south to record her debut album. For this year’s, we’re on the cusp of actually hearing it. It’s been a long time coming for the Bendbased singer/songwriter, and she couldn’t be happier to share it with the world. 4/17 – The Beths at Volcanic Theatre Pub 5/15 – Shook Twins at the Domino Room 5/23 – Brandi Carlile at Les Schwab Amphitheater Brandi Carlile’s voice is going to take over the Schwab. This show has the makings for an epic summer night that you’ll most definitely want to be a part of.

Synergie Cellulite Reduction

When you’re young, connective tissue, made up largely of collagen, holds fat in. As you age, fat begins to stick out through the tissue which causes a dimpled, lumpy appearance on the skin. It’s like a net, if the fibers are too loose or too tight, the fat can poke out through the holes. When cellulite shows up and how visible it is are thought to be influenced by hormones, genetics and age. Unfortunately, there is nothing a person can do to avoid getting it to some degree. Procedures such as liposuction can worsen the appearance. Synergie is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment for cellulite, which has been approved by the FDA (unlike many other cellulite products on the market). In 1998, a clinical study confirmed the efficacy of Synergie with 91% of patients noting significant reduction in cellulite. These results have remained consistent since then, with thousands of satisfied patients nationwide. It is also soothing and relaxing without the discomfort of extreme temperature changes to the skin and surrounding tissue. Most importantly, it is extremely effective. Synergie treatments are administered with the Aesthetic Massage System. This unique vacuum massage physically manipulates collagen fibers and connective tissue while increasing local blood circulation. This FDA approved technology stimulates subcutaneous tissues which can change the fat content of cells; eliminating excess fat and toxins through the lymphatic system. Synergie cellulite treatments dramatically tone and tighten skin, resulting in smoother texture and reduction in appearance of cellulite. There are also many health benefits to increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage massage. Areas best improved with Synergie are buttocks, thighs, legs and stomach. Following the completion of treatment, most patients report a reduction in size around the hips, stomach, thighs and arms; as well as noticeable weight loss. Synergie can also tighten loose skin and reduce wrinkles on the face. Not all of us want to wear “short shorts”, but it is amazing to feel great in your skin — no matter the season or the outfit!

Call or text (916) 496-4320 to schedule a consultation and customized package to feel your best!

Shifting Gender Bias

Women in STEAM helps women in the math and sciences overcome common hurdles By Laurel Brauns

be a part of a community of people they have something in common with; they are seeking out peers and support and to give support to others as well.” Sometimes members will come with a specific issue they would like to discuss at the mixers—pay inequities or promotions for example—which jumpstarts a group discussion, Hubbell said. Other times it’s much more informal. The relationship building within the mentor/mentee matchups is one of the core priorities of the group. The mentoring application on the Women in STEAM website asks about work environment, favorite activities and “What do you wish your brain was better at doing?” The mentorship steering committee then forms partnerships among members and leaves it up to the members to set up meetings and decide on the scope of their accountability to one another. Luann Abrams, who has been with STEAM since its founding, is passionate about Women in STEAM’s mission partly because she herself wished she had a mentor when she first entered the work force as an aerospace engineer. “Early on [when I first graduated from college], there was a lot of competition between women, especially in male dominated fields,” Abrams said. “I definitely see more of a shift these days; women really supporting other women. We see this in the mentorship program [in Women in STEAM]… women willing to give their time to help other women succeed.” “I think there are still issues with breaking that glass ceiling,” she said. “A lot of companies think if they have one woman in their C-Suite that that ticks the diversity box.”


From left, Technology Association of Oregon’s Teri Hockett, Women in STEAM chair Maggie Hubbell and Luann Abrams.

This observation was one of the many things that inspired Abrams to start her newest venture, CEOX. Through her vast network of executives throughout the U.S., Abrams has created a curated list of CEO-ready women. In some ways it’s a classic headhunting business model, where her company makes money if someone from the list gets the gig. But its exclusive focus on women helps companies to explicitly expand their talent pool beyond their typical referral lists. In the future, the platform will further support potential women CEOs with video training seminars and other resources. Meanwhile, Hubbell, the Women in STEAM chair, has just launched her own company called Shift, to help organizations with gender bias in the workplace. It offers virtual reality trainings and an equity scan (with interviews and data collection) for corporations interested in a more equitable workplace. “[Our research shows] that organizations that embrace diversity experience higher revenues, increased employee retention and [have] higher caliber candidates,” Hubbell said.

New Adventures for Julie Winter Newly renamed print shop in La Pine will host Third Thursday art walk art Local artist and printmaker Julie Winter is constantly alive with new work that’s refreshing and exciting. Recently, she finished up her second group exhibition of “Winter X Winter,” a group show she curates annually around a theme. Coming up for this next First Friday, she’ll showcase a series of new mixed media monotype prints at Sotheby’s. Winter’s own art is rich with a bold, modern color palette and energetic shapes and lines. Because the work is on paper,

Both Hubbell and Abrams see their new organizations sharing symbiotic missions with one another and aligning with their volunteer work with Women in STEAM as well. “We’re headed in the right direction, there is a growing awareness… we see it in the headlines, especially how women have been treated in their careers in traditionally male-dominated industries,” Abrams said. “But there is still a lot more work we need to do and STEAM is a part of that.” Find Women in STEAM mixers and workshops on their Meetup page ( and Facebook page (facebook. com/womeninSTEAMCO/). Generally, about 15 to 30 people come to the group’s bi-monthly mixers at The Wine Shop and Beer Tasting Bar in downtown Bend, while 50 – 100 often attend their workshops and trainings. Hubbell said their mixers are free and open to the public.

how this field may open her up to new creative possibilities in her personal work. Winter said she’s excited about being in La Pine, working with local community arts groups there. This month she’ll participate in her first Third Thursday—La Pine’s own art walk night—using the front of her new print shop to showcase other artists’ work. This month showcases the work of La Pine’s mayor, Dan Richard.  Julie Winter

s the gender pay gap widens, one women-led group in Bend offers support to woman advancing in competitive fields like tech, engineering and the arts. According to the World Economic Forum Gender Gap Report, the gender pay gap is getting worse. Women often work in roles most vulnerable to automation like retail and white-collar clerical positions. In addition, women are more likely to perform unpaid care work for their children or their elders, and not enough women are entering the tech field where wages have grown the most, the report says. Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (also known as Technology Association of Oregon’s Women in STEAM of Central Oregon), is helping local women reach their full potential in fields stereotypically dominated by men. The group hosts monthly mixers where local women in STEAM careers can network and help one another. Members can also participate in a mentorship program where women who are more established in their careers can help those who are just starting out. The group posts all upcoming events on their Meetup and Facebook pages. Women in STEAM also hosts quarterly workshops focused on skill-building to help women overcome some common hurdles in the workplace. Last month, the group hosted former American Express executive Jeannie Coyle who presented on confidence building and provided tools to help women elevate their power and impact. “I don’t think people [ join STEAM] just to meet people,” said Maggie Hubbell, the organization’s chair, who originally helped found Women in STEAM along with Technology Association of Oregon’s Teri Hockett two years ago. “People go to

With the gift book buying season in our rearview mirror, here’s a look at two of our favorites from last year just arriving in paperback. “To Shake The Sleeping Self” by Jedidiah Jenkins On the eve of turning 30, Jenkins left a dream job and spent the next 16 months cycling from Oregon to Patagonia. Not just a narrative of his adventures along the way, this unflinching memoir dives deep into what it means to transition into adulthood, his struggles with sexual identity in the context of his conservative upbringing, and the lessons we learn about ourselves when we hit the road. What happens when we step out of our routine? How can we use travel as a way to “wake us up” and bring a new sense of self to our lives back home?

By Tom Beans, Dudley’s Bookshop Cafe This is a fantastic memoir for anyone feeling that existential need to shake things up. “Daisy Jones and the Six” by Taylor Jenkins Reid Told through a series of interviews with band members and the people in their orbit, this reads like a fictionalized version of “Behind the Music,” the beloved rockumentary series from VH1. Daisy Jones is a waifish L.A. singer on the rise during the dawn of the 70s. The Six, led by the brooding Billy Dunne, are good—but they’re missing the piece that’ll take them to the top. When a producer brings them together to hit the road, they become the stuff of legend. Until it all falls apart. Second only to ‘Ten Thousand Doors of January,’ this was a favorite read of 2019.

in our life by closing the restaurant Sundays and Mondays, as well as closing down twice a year for two-week intervals in order to take family vacations. Our success is due in part to taking this time off.” SW: Best advice? AF: “My advice for women interested in the culinary arts would be exactly the same for men. You must love this work. You must have a passion that motivates you through the long hours on your feet. If you work in a place that is in any way degrading or inappropriate, leave. There are restaurants that will treat you with the respect you deserve.” Tambi Lane Photography

Chef Ashley Dolinar, Owner of Nonna’s Cucina, Redmond

“My passion in the kitchen started young but continued to flourish as I got older.” said Ashley Dolinar, Chef/Owner at Nonna’s Cucina in Redmond. Source Weekly: Talk about what challenges you face. Ashley Dolinar: “There is always going to be that one person that has some negative feedback, and learning how to turn the negativity into a positive learning experience rather than letting it bring me down is something that I am continuously working on.” SW: Best advice? AD: “This is a male-dominated industry, so it is very important to stand your ground and believe in yourself!” “I went to culinary school and knew from the first day that this is what I wanted to do,” said Ariana Fernandez, Chef/Owner Ariana Restaurant in Bend. Source Weekly: Restaurants are notorious for long, hard hours. How do you manage a work/life balance? Ariana Fernandez: “Andres (husband/co-owner) and I have two young daughters, so we try to create balance

Executive Pastry Chef Nickol Hayden-Cady, Owner of Foxtail Bakeshop, Bend

“Choosing this career was a labor of love for me,” said Nickol Hayden-Cady, Executive Pastry Chef/Owner Foxtail Bakeshop in Bend. Source Weekly: Your biggest challenge? Nickol Hayden-Cady: “The biggest challenge that I have had to date is opening the restaurant. We were eight months behind, $40,000 over budget and I was pregnant. I gave birth and a week later we opened the restaurant. I was training my staff, went home, gave birth, slept 24 hours and came right back to work. That experience was an incredible moment of growth for me as a chef and a woman.” SW: How do you manage a work/life balance? NHC: “What’s that? The challenges facing working mothers in the industry are insane. The hours are long—anywhere from 14 to 18 hours daily—and no daycare centers in Bend offer 2am to 7pm care hours. I am heavily reliant on my husband and parents.” Submitted

Chef Amy Wright, Owner of Sunny Yoga Kitchen & Sunny’s Carrello, Bend

“My love of cooking and desire to express my own flavors and seasoning boosted me to the head chef position I lead now with my two businesses,” said Amy Wright, Chef/Owner of Sunny Yoga Kitchen & Sunny’s Carrello in Bend. Source Weekly: How you do manage the work/life balance? Amy Wright: “I’m working 80-90 hours a week right now. The way I balance it is getting out to snowboard on my one day off and practicing at least 15 minutes of yoga almost every day. SW: Best advice? AW: “My advice for women interested in the culinary arts is to travel before settling into a culinary career. My inspiration comes from my many trips to Italy, France, Germany, Central America and so many amazing cities and the food they have to offer.”

Chef Bethlyn Rider, Owner of Bethlyn’s Global Fusion, Bend

“Love what you do!” said Bethlyn Rider, Chef/Owner of Bethlyn’s Global Fusion in Bend. Source Weekly: Why did you choose a culinary career? Bethlyn Rider: “It makes me feel happy to make other people happy! The best part is I don’t have to say anything; they take a bite from what I make for them and the smile on their face will say it all.” SW: Best advice? BR: “Train your staff to manage themselves; it’s empowering. Trust your female intuition. Don’t allow yourself to be in a box. Be ready to evolve.”

Know Future: The Future of Waste in Deschutes County

Learn what we can do to reduce waste in our community. As more people move to Deschutes County, more and more trash is being created for drop-off at the nearly full Knott Landfill. Ani Kasch, the Rethink Waste program manager at the Environmental Center, will share her insight. Know Future: The Future of Waste in Deschutes County Tue., March 10, 12:30pm. Sunriver Public Library, 56855 Venture Ln., Sunriver. Free.

Local Businesses Win Grants to Cut Waste

The Rethink Waste project offers local businesses a way to voluntarily cut output of plastic, or overall waste, even further. Last month, The Environmental Center’s Rethink Waste project awarded five grants to local businesses looking to support waste reduction. The project awarded grants to: -Council on Aging of Central Oregon to start using reusable bags for its Meals on Wheels program -Central Oregon Community College to design and install signage that educates people about recycling contamination -SCP Hotel in Redmond – to start an on-site composting program -Taco Del Mar in Bend and Redmond to replace single-use disposable dishware and utensils with reusables for people eating in -Sunriver Owner’s Association to replace Styrofoam coffee cups with reusable coffee mugs in its Sunriver SHARC Bite cafe The next round of small grants from the Rethink Waste project will open this fall. Information is available at



he most recent Data USA report shows 77.6% of chefs and head cooks are men—but it appears this traditionally male-dominated field is evolving. More than half the students at the Culinary Institute of America are now women. Central Oregon Community College’s Cascade Culinary Institute reports in the school year 2017-18, the program’s females made up 53% of the student population, with males at 47%. Cascade Culinary’s Assistant Professor of Baking and Pastry Laura Hagen believes women are the influencers of generations of chefs. “Most of my students have a mother or grandmother who taught them to love baking and cooking,” Hagen said. “Rarely do I hear of a father or grandfather forging that path.” She goes on to say, “Creating great food is synonymous with nurturing those we love.” Local female chefs/restaurateurs appear to echo that sentiment.

10 Barrel’s Brewmaster of Research and Development gives a look inside her relationship with beer


By Isaac Biehl



She Can Brew It


Sue Dougherty Photography

Tonya Cornett just doing what she does best!


he craft beer industry has evolved over the years, and imagining it as a male-only trade would be silly. Plenty of women brew beer, and Central Oregon is lucky to host a lot of that talent right here. Tonya Cornett, 10 Barrel’s brewmaster of research and development, has been a part of Bend’s brewing scene since 2002. I talked to Cornett about her relationship with beer, and how she’s seen the industry change over the years. SW: Do you remember the taste of the first beer you ever brewed? TC: When I began brewing in the mid 1990s, most breweries were focusing on English styles. As I recall my first beer was a honey brown. It was good enough that I got compliments from friends, but not remotely as good as what I was drinking in the brew pubs. Immediately I wanted to make another batch to try to make it better. SW: Is there any lesson that has stuck with you from your time at the World Brewing Academy? TC: When I attended the World Brewing Academy in Germany, I was exposed to lager beer styles for the first time. I gained an appreciation for German brewing traditions. They have a very definitive idea of what beer is and isn’t. Because of Prohibition, our brewing history in the United States didn’t evolve such staunch ideals—which ultimately led to the creativity you now see in the beer industry. SW: Compared to when you started out, I imagine the number of women in the industry is much greater. How has it felt to be a part of that growth and to see where the industry is at today? TC: Honestly, when I began brewing it never crossed my mind that brewing was thought of as a man’s job. It wasn’t until I began going to

the Craft Brewers Conference that the lack of women was apparent. For years I was featured in articles focusing on being a female in a male-dominated industry. The publicity was great in the beginning. However, after a time I found myself repeating the same answers to the same questions for article after article. When men are interviewed, the article is about their beer. It has taken more time than I expected, but I’m starting to see a decrease in focus on gender in the brewing industry. You can’t taste if your beer was brewed by a woman, so why should it matter? SW: 10 Barrel took home seven awards during this year’s Oregon Beer Awards, the second-most out of a plethora of breweries in the state. How did it feel to see the entire team’s work recognized in that way? TC: The Oregon Beer Awards are unlike any other beer competition throughout the year. There are about one-third the number of categories than that of a traditional competition, which means your beer is competing against a variety of different styles. It is much more a “best in show” scenario. Only Oregon breweries are eligible, so the caliber of beer is really high. This is the second year we have performed at a high level. For my team doing well at this competition, it reinforces that the beers we are brewing are relevant and comparable to what we see in the industry. SW: If you could sit and have a beer with any woman in history (dead or alive) who would it be and why? TC: When I think of women who have changed the world in my lifetime, my mind goes immediately to Oprah. We could chat about the nuances of beer and life. Hopefully, she would pick one of the Crushes for her favorites list!

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, Odem Theater Pub 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, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

DOLITTLE: This movie bounces between being

343 NW 6th Street

classy and stupid so quickly it’s bound to give you whiplash, but it’s definitely not as bad as critics would have you believe. Downey gives it his all and there’s something refreshing about the film’s lack of pretension. Still, there are a lot of fart jokes. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX


DOWNHILL: This is an American remake of the fan-


541.923.BBQ1 Tuesday - Sunday, 11am - 9pm

tastic 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

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. Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX

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. See full review on p. 33. Regal Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

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, Odem Theater Pub

THE LODGE: A dark and nasty slow-burn horror

film about the trauma we carry with us from childhood. Not for everyone, “The Lodge” will make you feel bad right from the start and only gets rougher as it goes. Fans of “Hereditary” will love this one. Regal Old Mill ScreenX & IMAX

MIDNIGHT FAMILY: An absolutely riveting

documentary about a family that runs a private, for-profit ambulance in Mexico City. This will pin you to your chair for an hour and a half as you watch the Ochoa family rocket through the streets trying to be the first ambulance to arrive at horrific scenes. Tin Pan Theater

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.

PARASITE: The Oscar winner for Best Picture and Best Foreign Film comes back to theaters in a black and white edition 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 THE PHOTOGRAPH: Two of my current favorite

actors to watch are Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield, so a romance that’s just about the two of them falling in love sounds perfect. Following the trials and tribulations of multiple generations of a family, “The Photograph” takes what could have been a generic romance and makes something timely and powerful. 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

STREAMING THIS WEEK “GOOD TIME” Hey! Did you like “Uncut Gems?” Well this is the film the Safdie Brothers made before that one, with a career-best performance from Robert Pattinson. It’s a race against time movie that plays like one never-ending panic attack. Sounds fun! courtesy IMDb

Monsters SCREEN Invisible A classic story of a powerful man making a woman feel invisible and insane By Jared Rasic


Courtesy Universal

33 VOLUME 24  ISSUE 10  /  MARCH 5, 2020  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

orror films help my anxiety. Not in a “Boy, at least I’m not getting chased through the woods by a madman with an axe,” kind of way, but by inverting my existential dread into something I can see and point a finger at. Some people throw on episodes of “The Office” or “Friends,” but my happy place has always been the Universal monster movies from the 1930s and ‘40s. James Whale has always been my personal filmmaking hero for being behind the camera for Boris Karloff’s “Frankenstein” and the superior “Bride of Frankenstein,” but also the pre-code 1933 production of “The Invisible Man.” Along with “The Creature From the Black Lagoon,” Tod Browning’s “Dracula,” “The Mummy” and “The Wolf Man,” these black-and- white creatures shaped the person I became and the kind of horror I liked writing about. It’s amazing how little luck the studios have had in continuing to tell stories with these beloved characters. Sure, the “Mummy” movies from the late ’90s/early aughts were fun, and there has been some luck here and there with Draculas and Frankensteins, but nothing has ever approached the pure iconic nature of the originals. Universal even tried to take a page from the Marvel handbook by creating a shared cinematic universe for all the monsters (unsubtly titled “Dark Universe”), but Tom Cruise’s much-derided “Mummy” remake scrapped that idea for good. Universal then went back to the drawing board and decided to focus on each monster as a story worth telling on its own, with solid filmmakers and actors shepherding each production. Launching

How come no one ever does anything good with invisible powers? It’s always voyeurism.

this new direction is “The Invisible Man” (which four years ago was planned as a vehicle for Johnny Depp) starring Elisabeth Moss and written and directed by Leigh Whannell, co-creator of the “Saw” and “Insidious” franchises. Against all odds, Whannell has a new horror classic on his hands that, decades from now, will stand alongside the other Universal monsters with pride. Two major decisions he made almost single-handedly make this movie as powerful as it is: One, he cast the prodigiously talented Elisabeth Moss as his lead, giving the film prestige before it even opened and two, he focused on the victim instead of the villain, which gives the entire film a horrifically modern twist. Moss’ character Cecilia is being emotionally and physically abused

by her boyfriend. In a nerve-jangling opening sequence, she drugs him and escapes their house in the middle of the night. His response? To fake his own death, become invisible (it makes sense, in context) and gaslight Cecilia so everyone in her life thinks she’s crazy and unstable. None of this is fun to watch. It’s not entertaining to watch an abused woman desperate for ONE person to look at her and say, “I believe you,” and it’s not meant to be. My date to the movie was heavily triggered by the storyline. I’ve talked to several other women who went into the movie expecting a fun horror flick and instead got something closer to “Sleeping with the Enemy.” Yes, the sci-fi concept is goofy on the surface, but it never feels ridiculous or generates unintentional laughter. Instead, this

is a perfectly calculated horror movie focused exclusively on how a powerful man makes a woman feel invisible and insane and how she goes about getting that power back. “The Invisible Man” is brutal, bleak and depressing for most of its run time, but Whannell knows when to pull back and give the audience some light in the darkness. There are truly some jaw-dropping sequences in the film, and Moss keeps us with her every step of the way while making all the weirdness of invisibility seem perfectly believable. As much as I loved it, this monster was much too real to help with anxiety.  The Invisible Man

The Sporting Life



Three local women working to close gender gaps in sporting communities By Cayla Clark

She Shreds According to Tenley Wallace, one of the women behind She Shreds Snow Camp, this isn’t an uncommon occurrence. “I’ve heard so many beginning riders say things like, ‘I really want to learn to ride, but I don’t think my husband or boyfriend teaching me is a good idea,” she said. So, she developed the She Shreds camp for everyone from first-timers to extreme riders, geared towards harnessing feminine energy while empowering women in the great outdoors. From April 2 to 5, women of all abilities are encouraged to attend an immersive winter camp dedicated to “optimizing shred in the female body.” It will include private snowboarding lessons, yoga practice, a buffet imagined by nutrition guru Wendee Daniels, and the vital support and encouragement of like-minded women. Wallace explained what drove her to develop the camp. “My love for snowboarding started in 1990,” she said. “I was into yoga, dance, martial arts and being

outdoors. These things all came together for me when I got on a snowboard.” Wallace explained how powerful she knew it would be to combine a women’s snowboarding camp with yoga and empowerment practices. “A vision of what was possible flashed before my eyes,” she said. “As soon as we put shape, form and a name to it, REI took it up immediately.” The camp will combine a love of outdoor sports with yoga, meditation and a holistic approach to womanhood. “In my entire life, I’ve only ridden with about five other women, because I’m an extreme rider. I wanted to get off the mountain with the dudes. There’s a lot of hesitation for women on the mountain. Not so much physical limitations, but mental ones. We’ll focus on harnessing feminine energy through meditative practices.” She Shreds Snow Camp for Women April 2-5, starting at Loge Camp, Bend

Ladies All Ride After entering the mountain biking scene in the mid ‘90s, Lindsey Richter quickly realized that the world of professional racing was completely dominated by men. A Portland native, Richter moved to Los Angeles after competing on “Survivor.” There she met her now ex-husband, a pro mountain bike racer. “We got married within the year and traveled to a bunch of big races,” she said. “I felt inadequate amongst all of these pro riders, like I didn’t and couldn’t live up to them. I stopped riding as much because I felt intimidated; there weren’t many women that raced bikes for fun. I searched for a group of like-minded women for about a decade, while simultaneously getting a lot of really bad Jeff Clark

advice on biking. Things like, ‘Your bike knows what to do.’ In 2005 I moved to Bend, and I experienced, for the first time in 10 years, a group of women that seemed to actually enjoy riding.” In 2010, Richter took a certification course at Whistler, put on by the Professional Mountain Bike Association. “For the first time I realized that there was some method to the madness; I was able to articulate mountain biking in an understandable way.” In 2013, Richter started her own clinics in Colorado. In 2015, sponsors started noticing the prevalence and importance of female-specific clinics. Her friend and current business partner, Meredith Brandt, had started her own for-fun, weekend clinics in Bend. They joined forces to provide the female community with a safe, non-competitive place to ride bikes and have fun. “I started to realize how much mountain biking relates to life,” Richter said. “My personality traits were coming to light, things that I didn’t know about myself, things that were cool to discover and things that I needed to work on. There’s an emotional component behind it; it can help women change their thoughts and really start to believe in themselves. To see their potential through sports.”

fter living in the flat, humid wasteland that is Florida for three years, I was excited to get on the mountain and try my hand at winter sports upon moving to Bend. My then-boyfriend, a long-time gnar-shredder, was so excited to get me on a board that he took off work to teach me almost as soon as we moved. After 30 strenuous minutes on Mt. Bachelor, we were screaming at one another full volume. “Why do you keep falling??” he screamed. “Because I’m scared!!” I screamed back. Needless to say, the excursion was about as short-lived as the relationship.

KS.Kenda Women's Elite Team

Lady Swarm Emma Maaranen has been professionally racing bikes for seven years, after an injury ended her running career. She quickly discovered that getting her foot in the pro racing door was certainly no downhill coast. “As a professional female cyclist, it’s clear that there’s still some disparity between the sexes,” she said. “This is clear in the lack of support female racers get and in the

payout at races. There’s an overall lack of inclusion and participation of women in sports like biking.” Inspired to help women gain access to races, Maaranen started Lady Swarm, a movement geared toward getting an equal number of women out to biking-related events. “A lot of female racers feel uncomfortable; they feel alone. Our goal is to create a community where women can connect and actually have numbers at races, so that they feel included, excited and free to have fun.” Lady Swarm started a little over a year ago in Bend, offering resources to help get women educated, equipped and excited to ride. “It’s an inclusive community,” Maaen shared. “If men want to come, hey, why not. Men can come! We do special get-togethers with women, and I share my knowledge on biking with women who are just getting started. I hold weeknight clinics that focus on race-specific skills, things that might seem kind of trivial but actually can be so daunting that they prevent people from participating in races. Skills like grabbing a water bottle during a race, or accessing snacks. Then we go out together and practice these skills. “One of the biggest things I want to do is encourage women to come out and race bikes. You don’t need to be a pro, you don’t need to be the fastest. This community is imperative in the sense that it creates healthy challenges and goals while helping connect you with like-minded people. It’s so inviting, inclusive and fun, and there’s no pressure to be anyone other than who you are.”  Lady Swarm Facebook Group: groups/2449637648596812/

She Moves Mountains


Combatting gender exclusivity in the world of rock climbing By Cayla Clark Freya Fennwood


very professional female athlete I’ve recently spoken to has agreed vehemently on one point: women are harshly underrepresented in the world of outdoor sports. Lizzy VanPatten, the co-founder and owner of She Moves Mountains, quickly realized this for herself after diving headfirst into the rock-climbing scene roughly six years ago.

“My personal mission is to help women overcome the obstacles that might be stranding in their way while realizing their own strength and ability.” —Lizzy Vanpatten “In all my time climbing, I realized I had never been taught by a woman,” she shared. “It’s no secret that women are underrepresented, but this is especially true when it comes to rock climbing and guiding.” VanPatten founded She Moves Mountains three years ago as a means to break down gender-related barriers and to combat exclusivity in the outdoors. The organization offers rock climbing clinics and retreats guided exclusively by women, encouraging like-minded ladies to develop

their skills in supportive, non-judgmental environments. “When I first started climbing, I felt like the outdoors were only really accessible to human beings that weren’t like me. So, I started focusing on women and female empowerment outdoors, but I soon realized that women were being exclusive as well.” For this reason, she changed her mission statement to include those who identify as female, not just those who were born that way. The inclusive organization aims to knock down pre-existing and limiting gender roles while navigating gender-related fear. “My personal mission is to help women overcome the obstacles that might be standing in their way while realizing their own strength and ability,” VanPatten said. “If you can do four squats, you’re strong enough to rock climb. Women might think, ‘Oh, I can’t do that, I’m not strong enough,’ or they might be intimidated by the dominating male presence. Then they come out to a clinic and realize how strong and capable they truly are.” She Moves Mountains will have its opening weekend for the season March 27, which will include guided climbing sessions, lodging at LOGE Entrada and a special screening of “Pretty Strong” at the Tower Theatre—a documentary that follows 10 of the world’s best female climbers.

Putting Porcupines on a Pedestal A surprise pup, found at the High Desert Museum By Jim Anderson 39 to the museum with the understanding that any of “Honeysuckle’s” offspring would go back to Wildlife Ambassadors. Honeysuckle shared an outdoor, natural habitat exhibit with the museum’s male porcupine, “Thistle,” but they didn’t seem to like each other, which isn’t unusual for porcupines. Because of a physiology that makes porcupines look pregnant most of the time, no one knew she was already expecting. On July 30, an intern discovered a softball-size porcupine pup in Honeysuckle’s habitat. Surprise! Surprise! Cathy Carroll, spokeswoman for the High Desert Museum, said, “I don’t want to anthropomorphize too much, but it’s like that couple you never think is going to work out but... it certainly did. For there to be any kind of successful breeding, the animals have to be well cared for and feel comfortable and secure in their surroundings.” All this reminds me of my first real introduction to porcupines, which took place one winter day in the mid ‘50s. My brother, Don, and I were in the string of caves by the Knott Landfill, exploring for pack rat middens. (Earlier, I had helped state epidemiologists look for rabid bats in the caves, and fleas in pack rat nests that carry the bubonic plague. We didn’t find any rabid bats, but did discover plague fleas in pack rat middens.) Don and I came to a tight squeeze where ceiling and floor were so close, we had to remove our hard hats and lights and squirm along on our backs with our

faces turned sideways. As we wiggled along in that position I said, “Boy, Don, I’m sure happy you don’t suffer from claustrophobia.” Then I thought I could hear soft rustling and grunting noises ahead of us in the darkness. “Shhhh, listen...” I said to Don. As we quietly laid there, I could hear the strange noises coming closer, and with supreme effort turned my neck to see what was coming. When my flashlight jabbed into the darkness, red globes came reflecting back, going on and off like traffic lights. Then it hit me me. I knew what was coming. “Don...” I whispered, “that’s a whole herd of porcupines headed our way.

n our part of the country, where trees were once thought of as a cash crop, porcupines were not thought of as heroes, or worthy of a pedestal. I can recall back in the ‘50s, when signs nailed to trees and poles all over the forest around Bend read, “Please Kill Porcupines!” Porcupine poison stations were common. Fortunately, as far as I know, no one pays anyone to kill the poor beasts today. In fact, some porcupines have been elevated to a creature to be admired. According to an old press release from the High Desert Museum, a baby porcupine born at the museum in summer several years back made her first public appearance shortly thereafter at an elementary school in Virginia—even featured in The Washington Post. The young porkie (not to be confused with Porky Pig) was named “Magnolia” through a contest won by third grader Leo Higbie, age 9, of Purcellville, Virginia. (I can just hear my crusty old pal, Bob Couch, who I logged with in the ‘50s, exclaiming, “What?! Name a stupid porcupine!?”) About a year later, Wildlife Ambassadors in Paeonian Springs, Virginia, sent a female porkie named “Honeysuckle” (apparently a rehabbed “education” animal) to the High Desert Museum because she was too shy to leave her cage during school programs. (Considering how we humans treat porcupines in the wild, that was probably good thinking.) Becky Shore, executive director of Wildlife Ambassadors, sent her

What does all of this mean for buyers and current homeowners? power by 10%. Another way to put it is, on a loan of $100,000 when the interest rates are at 3.25% the buyer’s purchasing power increases to $110,000. This essentially opens up the buyer’s ability to increase their budget and allows a buyer to have an opportunity to afford a higher purchase price when rates are low. What does the drop in interest rates mean for sellers? When rates are low, we typically see an uptick and influx of buyers in the marketplace. The influx of buyers results in a more active market. As such, active and competitive markets tend to yield higher purchase/sales prices, fewer days on market and more competitive offers. While most markets have been jolted from the fear generated by COVID-19 and the uncertainty of what lies ahead, the result is the real estate market will experience something different than what we are experiencing on Wall Street. It’s difficult to forecast how long rates will stay this low. What we do know is that sharp declines in mortgage interest rates result in active and competitive real estate markets. Real estate is known to be one of the most stable long-term investments one can make. As a real estate professional, it’s my opinion that buyers take advantage of the low interest rates and use the increase in purchasing power. This is also a great time for investors, as the ability to borrow money has become far less expensive. Lower mortgage rates mean lower payments and more opportunities for cash flow on rentals rented at a market rate. All in all, with the fear and uncertainty surrounded the impact of COVID-19, the mortgage rates and real estate markets seem to be a rare source of good news in the U.S. economy.

41 VOLUME 24  ISSUE 10  /  MARCH 5, 2020  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY


n recent weeks, news of the rapid global spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 has dominated conversations, news cycles, social media and global economic markets. But what does COVID-19 have to do with real estate? Well, considering that mortgage rates fell last week to the lowest rates we’ve seen since 2012, it’s clear that fears surrounding the virus have a direct impact on real estate and real estate investments. When rates tumble, the real estate market feels it. Why did rates take a huge tumble last week? Mortgage rates take cues from U.S. Treasury yields. Last week the massive decline observed with stock markets is a result of the fear that the virus will impede global economic growth, thereby pushing investors toward “safe-haven” or less-risky investments. The slow in global economic activity and the reduced outlook for inflation, due to the unknowns with regard to forecasting the economic impact of the coronavirus, have been favorable for relatively safer investments, like mortgage-backed securities. As such, resulting in large rate drops, with a 30-year fixed rate at 3.23% on Feb. 28. What does this mean for buyers, sellers and property owners? For current property owners, the substantial drop in rates could mean a great time to refinance a current mortgage into a lower monthly payment, particularly if the current mortgage rate is north of the 4% mark. These types of interest rates we saw last week, and should continue to see in the near future, are a buyer’s dream. The lower the interest rate, the more purchasing power a buyer has. For example, with every percentage point the interest rate increases, it decreases purchasing

Why am I only attracted to unattainable guys? As soon as men express interest in me, I lose interest in them. How do I break this cycle?! —Frustrated At the moment, the perfect love poem for you would come from a clerk at the court: “Roses are red, violets are blue; stay 500 feet away, or it’s handcuffs for you!” Chances are you’re looking to win, not looking for love. Once you win -- once you’ve landed the guy you’ve been pursuing -- you’re done. However, you probably tell yourself you’re seeking romantic connection because, well, it’s more appealing than admitting you’re the human version of a dog chasing a dirty tennis ball. The point -- the excitement of it -- is the chasing, not the getting. (Dirty tennis balls don’t taste like bacon.) You’re basically on an emotional crack bender. The big neurochemical player here is dopamine, a neurotransmitter, a messenger in chemical form that carries signals from brain cell to brain cell. Though it’s often called the “pleasure chemical,” that’s wrong. Giving you a buzz is opioids’ department. Getting you to the opioids is dopamine’s job. Research by neuroscientist Kent Berridge suggests dopamine drives “wanting” (as in, craving) -- motivating you to pursue things that are “rewarding,” like sex, drugs, and cake. There are some nuances to this. Dopamine is the Beverly Hills brat of neurochemicals -- seriously snobby about rewards being new. In researcher-ese, it spikes at the prospect of “novel rewards”: sex, drugs, and cake you haven’t tried before. It also goes up big-time for “unpredictable rewards” -- those we aren’t sure we can get -- which explains the allure of the seemingly aloof himbo. However, “predictable rewards,” like the Grandma-pleaser -- the nice, stable fellow you can always count on -- read as a big “meh” in Dopamineville. I’m guessing your love of the chase has a second job -- as convenient cover for repairs needed in your emotional wing. Get to work on your self-worth, self-acceptance, and any other self-(s) in need of shoring up. While you’re an emotional work in progress, be honest with men you date that you have a tendency to disappear like cartoon ink. Eventually, however, your efforts should be transformative -- meaning the meme guiding your romantic life will no longer be “Look for a man who looks at you like my dog looks at the small print on the iTunes agreement.”

Wane’s World

I have a challenging job I love, and lately, it’s really cutting into my time with my boyfriend. I tell him how much I hate this, but he’s been very understanding. Initially, this was great, but now I’m annoyed that he seems fine with seeing less of me. Is it ridiculous I’m upset he isn’t acting more upset that I’m not around as much? —Disturbed Poets and lyricists often describe love as a medical issue: Love hurts! Love is blind! Love lies bleeding! It goes a little far, however, to give it a traumatic brain injury: Love is comatose. But maybe that Amy Alkon isn’t what’s going on for your boyfriend. Maybe you’re just prone to suspect his love is waning. Research by evolutionary psychologists Martie Haselton and David Buss suggests humans evolved to be imperfect thinkers -- to have distorted perceptions when we have to make “judgments under uncertainty.” These are guesses we make when we lack access to some or all of the facts. Haselton and Buss explain that recurring mating and survival issues over human history have led us to make protective errors -- overperceiving or underperceiving elements in our physical and social environments. We err in our thinking in whichever way would be the least costly to us: overestimating or underestimating. Because women are the babymakers of the species, it’s a big costly error for a woman to believe a man will commit -stick around and dad -- when he’s really just a “sex it ’n’ exit” cad. So, women err on side of “commitment underperception” -- underestimating men’s level of commitment. Even if a man actually is committed, a woman’s going all hurt feelz that he isn’t might lead him to reassure her with increased shows of devotion: cuddling, romantic dinners, the (ethically sourced!) Hope Diamond Jr. Consider whether there’s any real evidence your boyfriend’s love and commitment are waning or whether your emotions are playing evolutionary lap dog. When someone really loves you, they show it by making sacrifices for you -- like by supporting your need for unimpeded time and energy when the job you love gets more demanding than usual. Your boyfriend seems really accommodating, so let him know if what would really make you happy is a jealous, demanding manchild who sneaks out in the middle of the night with a big tub of Crisco and greases all the rungs on the ladder of success.

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In 1637, renowned

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Progress rarely unfolds in a glorious, ever-rising upward arc. The more usual pattern is gradual and uneven. Each modest ascent is followed by a phase of retrenchment and integration. In the best-case scenario, the most recent ascent reaches a higher level than the previous ascent. By my estimate, you’re in one of those periods of retrenchment and integration right now, Aries. It’s understandable if you feel a bit unenthusiastic about it. But I’m here to tell you that it’s crucial to your next ascent. Let it work its subtle magic. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You are most likely to be in sweet alignment with cosmic rhythms if you regard the next three weeks as a time of graduation. I encourage you to take inventory of the lessons you’ve been studying since your birthday in 2019. How have you done in your efforts to foster interesting, synergistic intimacy? Are you more passionately devoted to what you love? Have you responded brightly as life has pushed you to upgrade the vigor and rigor of your commitments? Just for fun, give yourself a grade for those “classes,” as well as any others that have been important. Then—again, just for fun—draw up a homemade diploma for yourself to commemorate and honor your work.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Are you ready to seize a more proactive role in shaping what happens in the environments you share with cohorts? Do you have any interest in exerting leadership to enhance the well-being of the groups that are important to you? Now is an excellent time to take brave actions that will raise the spirits and boost the fortunes of allies whose fates are intermingled with yours. I hope you’ll be a role model for the art of pleasing oneself while being of service others.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancerian author Lionel Trilling (1905–1975) was an influential intellectual and literary critic. One of his heroes was another influential intellectual and literary critic, Edmund Wilson. On one occasion, Trilling was using a urinal in a men’s room at the New School for Social Research in New York. Imagine how excited he was when Wilson, whom he had never met, arrived to use the urinal right next to his. Now imagine his further buoyancy when Wilson not only spoke to Trilling but also expressed familiarity with his work. I foresee similar luck or serendipity coming your way soon: seemingly unlikely encounters with interesting resources and happy accidents that inspire your self-confidence.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Poet Conee Berdera delivered a poignant message to her most valuable possession: the flesh and blood vehicle that serves as sanctuary for all her yearnings, powers, and actions. “My beloved body,” she writes, “I am so sorry I did not love you enough.” Near the poem’s end she vows “to love and cherish” her body. I wish she would have been even more forceful, saying something like, “From now on, dear body, I promise to always know exactly what you need and give it to you with all my ingenuity and panache.” Would you consider making such a vow to your own most valuable possession, Leo? It’s a favorable time to do so.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Luckily, the turning point you have arrived at doesn’t present you with 20 different possible futures. You don’t have to choose from among a welter of paths headed in disparate directions. There are only a few viable options to study and think about. Still, I’d like to see you further narrow down the alternatives. I hope you’ll use the process of elimination as you get even clearer about what you don’t want. Let your fine mind gather a wealth of detailed information and objective evidence, then hand over the final decision to your intuition.

43 VOLUME 24  ISSUE 10  /  MARCH 5, 2020  /  THE SOURCE WEEKLY

English poet John Milton wrote “Lycidas,” a poetic elegy in honor of a friend. Reading it today, almost four centuries later, we are struck by how archaic and obscure the language is, with phrases like “O ye laurels” and “Ah! who hath reft my dearest pledge?” A famous 20th-century Piscean poet named Robert Lowell was well-educated enough to understand Milton’s meaning, but also decided to “translate” all of “Lycidas” into plainspoken modern English. I’d love to see you engage in comparable activities during the coming weeks, Pisces: updating the past; reshaping and reinterpreting your old stories; revising the ways you talk about and think about key memories.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Certain artists are beyond my full comprehension. Maybe I’m not smart enough to understand their creations or I’m not deep enough to fathom why their work is considered important. For example, I don’t enjoy or admire the operas of Wagner or the art of Mark Rothko. Same with the music of Drake or the novels of Raymond Carter or the art of Andy Warhol. The problem is with me, not them. I don’t try to claim they’re overrated or mediocre. Now I urge you to do what I just did, Libra, only on a broader scale. Acknowledge that some of the people and ideas and art and situations you can’t appreciate are not necessarily faulty or wrong or inadequate. Their value may simply be impossible for you to recognize. It’s a perfect time for you to undertake this humble work. I suspect it will be liberating. SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Scorpio-born Ralph Bakshi has made animated films and TV shows for over 60 years. His work has been influential. “I’m the biggest ripped-off cartoonist in the history of the world,” he says. Milder versions of his experience are not uncommon for many Scorpios. People are prone to copying you and borrowing from you and even stealing from you. They don’t always consciously know they’re doing it, and they may not offer you proper appreciation. I’m guessing that something like this phenomenon may be happening for you right now. My advice? First, be pleased about how much clout you’re wielding. Second, if anyone is borrowing from you without making the proper acknowledgment, speak up about it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Vainly I sought nourishment in shadows and errors,” wrote author Jorge Luis Borges. We have all been guilty of miscalculations like those. Each of us has sometimes put our faith in people and ideas that weren’t worthy of us. None of us is so wise that we always choose influences that provide the healthiest fuel. That’s the bad news, Sagittarius. The good news is that you now have excellent instincts about where to find the best long-term nourishment.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Poet Adrienne Rich wrote, “When a woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her.” I believe this same assertion is true about people of all genders. I also suspect that right now you are in a particularly pivotal position to be a candid revealer: to enhance and refine everyone’s truth-telling by being a paragon of honesty yourself. To achieve the best results, I encourage you to think creatively about what exactly it means for you to tell the deep and entire truth.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Through some odd Aquarian-like quirk, astrologers have come to harbor the apparently paradoxical view that your sign is ruled by both Saturn and Uranus. At first glance, that’s crazy! Saturn is the planet of discipline, responsibility, conservatism, diligence, and order. Uranus is the planet of awakening, surprise, rebellion, barrier-breaking, and liberation. How can you Aquarians incorporate the energies of both? Well, that would require a lengthy explanation beyond the scope of this horoscope. But I will tell you this: During the rest of the year 2020, you will have more potential to successfully coordinate your inner Saturn and your inner Uranus than you have had in years. Homework: Meditate on how you will do just that.

Homework: Don’t tolerate bullying from critical voices in your head or from supposedly “nice” people who are trying to guilt-trip you.

Women CEOs in Cannabis

Shaking up the weed industry’s “dudebro” image in Central Oregon By Jeremy Dickman 46 WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / MARCH 5, 2020 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

hat Fortune 500 companies tend not to be led by women isn’t exactly news. Only 33 of the businesses on the famed Forbes list are helmed by women—still, I held out more hope for the burgeoning marijuana industry. Spawned in a sort of egalitarian lawlessness, and without the constraints of traditional regulation and business structure, the cannabis industry seemed poised to let women flourish. After a year of practicing law and representing cannabis CEOs in Bend, however, I quickly calculated that the industry appeared as male-dominated as any other. Fortunately, that hasn’t deterred many notable Central Oregon women who either own or occupy senior positions at local labs, farms and harvesting companies. The web publication Marijuana Venture named Lindsey Pate, CEO of Glass House Grown, one of its “40 Under 40” in 2018. Pate’s lifelong fascination with biology led her to start a marijuana farm near Terrebonne with her husband, Chris. “Honestly, I had no idea that cannabis would be a legitimate career,” says Pate, who, expecting her first child last week, was counting minutes between labor contractions while deftly responding to my questions. “At the time I was in college, cannabis science was not really something that was talked about.” Pate credits her husband for spotting her leadership abilities. “When we started Glass House, I was not really ready to step in that transparently … but Chris saw the potential in me as a leader [of] our family’s company.” Pate has often been on the front lines of Deschutes County’s cannabis controversies, testifying at County meetings in defense of an industry frequently maligned by county commissioners and some rural neighbors. But it’s the expense required to get a marijuana business up and running that she cites as one big reason women are underrepresented in the industry. “To start a cannabis business, it’s likely you need to raise funds,” she said. “And unfortunately, most fundraising dollars still go to men. “When you start a business, you have to be resourceful, especially when you’re bootstrapping. Women are tough, hard-working multi-taskers,” said Pate, who, it bears repeating, was experiencing labor pains while responding. Eleanor Saueborn, co-owner of Happy Harvesting, echoed Pate’s point. “We come in, and we hustle,” she said. “People who think of it as a passion project [tend to succeed].” Saueborn was raised in North Carolina, became a self-described ski bum in Montana and moved to Central Oregon in 2012 to work on a medical marijuana farm. By 2016, she had formed Happy Harvesting, a harvesting and trim

company that also provides labor and services to marijuana farms, with co-owner Jessica Thornhill. Like Pate, Saueborn is well-acquainted with bureaucratic hassle. “We pay double [the workers compensation] rates of most businesses,” she noted. “They said it’s because we touch cannabis. … I mean, we have scissors, but we don’t run with them.” This is a far cry from her relatively carefree origins in the industry, when she says there was significantly less pressure. Trimmers (those who separate the marijuana flower from leaves and other cannabis plant detritus) worked for a couple weeks, cashed in big and then enjoyed time off. “Back in the day you just hang out with your friends, trim some weed and have a good time,” she said, laughing. “Now it’s all reasonable rates, reasonable money.” For Ellen Parkin, quality assurance officer at Juniper Analytics in Bend, a CEO title isn’t the only possible position from which women shape the industry. “Women are building their space in roles of power—managing, sales, marketing,” Parkin said. “You may not see women at the front, but who do you think is running the show behind the scenes?” After she studied food and fermentation science at University of the Redlands, Parkin earned a master’s degree at Oregon State University in brewing science. She trampolined from beer to weed thereafter. “My experience with hop chemical research and analysis helped me make that connection in the cannabis industry,” she said. Pate, Saueborn and Parkin each acknowledge that the industry is male-dominated, and women’s participation rates have a ways to go. Because of that, women who are blazing their trails can face a bumpier road. Saueborn says ending prohibition in Oregon has actually assisted in alleviating that. “With legalization, each year, you’re seeing a lot less of the locker room talk,” she said. “Everyone should be aware of what they’re saying, and who they’re saying it to. Relationships are important, and it’s not forgotten.” So how do we bolster the number of women leaders in the cannabis industry? “Let’s make this industry safer by allowing federal banking and merchant services,” Parkin added, echoing Saueborn’s point about legalization. “Let’s continue to build the community with conferences and events.” For Parkin, there are more reasons to be optimistic. “Although women may not have an equal ratio as owners or CEOs, we do have an equal, sometimes even dominating ratio in the STEM side of the cannabis industry,” Parkin said. “And that makes this industry awesome.”
