REPORTER Keely Damara





Ariel Méndez for Bend Metro Park & Recreation District Director, Pos. 1

Two Bend Park and Recreation board spots are open this election, with Brady Fuller vacating Position 1 and Ellen Grover vacating Position 2. In a city with so many changes and so many needs happening all at once, it’s unfortunate that the Position 2 race is unopposed. We’ve endorsed the candidate in that race, Deputy District Attorney Jason Kropf, in the past, and likely would again—but unopposed races are not ideal. The Position 1 race, meanwhile, has two candidates who would be beneficial to the board—but Ariel Méndez, a political science instructor at OSU-Cascades, is more ready for the job right now. He serves on BPRD’s budget committee, the City of Bend’s Citywide Transportation Advisory Committee and as president of the bike-commuting advocacy group, Bend Bikes. With that extensive involvement, Méndez has shown he’s committed to learning and to leadership in Bend. Méndez’s priorities include building a trail network that can help people get around town safely (and off streets) and making BPRD’s needs-based assistance programs more visible and accessible—priorities that are directly in line with the needs of a community faced with transportation challenges and affordability issues. On the hot-button issue of Mirror Pond, Méndez is much more well-versed and ready to tackle this pressing issue. Méndez believes the conversation needs to be more about whether to dredge or not dredge, and believes BPRD shouldn’t invest in any project until we know the future of the Newport Dam, whose impoundment forms Mirror Pond. Both candidates believe the public should be involved in any decision-making that happens around the dam. Davis is trained as a civil engineer, works at an insurance company and serves on Bend’s Economic Development Advisory Board. He’s running to encourage more diversity and inclusion on the board—and as a resident of

the east side of Bend, wants to be on the board to represent the lower-income east side. While we agree that having equal representation from the various corners of Bend would be valuable, we do recall that Bend voters rejected the notion of wards during the last election—signaling that Bendites may not prioritize that as much as some other things, such as increasing transportation infrastructure. While building a connected trail network won’t solve the issues on a large scale, it’s a mission that is within BPRD’s scope. Méndez should have the chance to advocate for that at the board level. Vote Ariel Méndez for Bend Metro Park & Recreation District, Position 1.

Shimiko Montgomery for Administrative School District No. 1 Director, Zone 3 (Bend-La Pine Schools)

It’s a high bar to unseat an incumbent in any race. In this one, however, Shimiko Montgomery simply has more knowledge and on-the-ground experience in schools, making her a candidate who can rise to the bar. We like Andy High. We really do. For the past six years, he’s been a solid presence on the Bend-La Pine School Board—a reasonable person who’s able to work well with people from both sides of the political aisle. But High himself admits that his primary expertise around education comes from when he was a student himself. As the owner of Thompson Pump and Irrigation, with a bachelor’s in public policy and administration, and some time spent serving with Sen. Tim Knopp as policy advisor, his expertise is valuable for the community, but that expertise may be better served on other boards. Bend-La Pine Schools—like most schools in Oregon—continue to grapple with low on-time graduation rates, large class sizes, achievement gaps for students of color and low levels of mental

and social supports for struggling students. Montgomery has faced these issues during her time as a school counselor and will be more well-versed and ready to tackle these challenges on the board. While board members don’t work directly in schools, an astute board will be able to offer explicit oversight and guidance in ways to handle these issues. High agrees with the Carver model of governance, in which a board governs at arm’s length from day-to-day operations. While that is, on paper, the role of a school board, that’s not to say that a board member shouldn’t possess deep institutional knowledge of the causes, effects and solutions that dictate policies. That’s where Montgomery’s experience can come into play. We applaud the entire board for overseeing the adoption of stronger security measures at Bend-La Pine Schools, and for fostering the inclusion of more career and technical education courses in secondary schools. Moving forward, with a continued population explosion—and an increasingly diverse population—social supports are only going to be more crucial. With the passage of the Student Success Act in the Oregon Legislature this week, we can assume more dollars will be flowing into the district soon. We need a board that can ask the right questions and provide guidance to ensure an adequate amount of that money goes toward social supports. We believe Montgomery can help make that happen. Vote Shimiko Montgomery for Bend-La Pine Schools, Zone 3.

Legislature), dealing with growth in the district and keeping class sizes low. In addition, he’d like to see more diverse class offerings for secondary students and supports improving the quality of instruction in all schools. As these are also key priorities for Sisters residents, as well, we believe Hedrick’s priorities are where they should be. Vote Don Hedrick for Sisters School District, Position 4.

Redmond Area Park & Recreation Measure No. 9-126: YES Bonds to construct new community recreational facility to expand programs

The momentum in Redmond at the present moment is palpable. Valuable new businesses are investing in the city. The City of Redmond and the Redmond Chamber of Commerce are both hard at work making the city more attractive to businesses and residents, through initiatives such as its new transit hub, a landmark affordable housing project, a new bike park and an expanded runway at the airport—plus more flights to key cities. Redmond voters should support that momentum by saying yes to the bond measure that would build a new recreational facility—including swimming pools, a gym, an indoor walking track and fitness rooms. Redmond residents deserve a facility that meets the needs of the growing city.

Don Hedrick for Sisters School District 6, Director, Position 4 Redmond Area Don Hedrick, running for another term on the Sisters School Board, has already Park & Recreation served eight years on the board, including four as chair. After taking two years off, he Measure No. 9-127: says he missed serving and wants another chance. As a former high school teacher and principal who’s worked in both sub- YES urban environments in Illinois as well as smaller districts in Tillamook, Ore., and Klamath County, Ore., it’s clear that Hedrick has the breadth of experience we like to see on a school board. His priorities include being part of a team and working with the rest of the board, as well as being proper custodians of public funds. His concerns include the consistent underfunding of schools (hopefully alleviated, at least in part, by the recent passage of the Student Success Act in the Oregon

Five-year operating levy for Park and Recreation

Due to rates set decades ago, the taxes Redmond Area Park & Recreation District collects are far less than what Bend’s district does—and it’s quite apparent when one looks at the services offered, as well as the wages Redmond Parks employees earn compared to Bend. If voters want to see expanded services and offerings for kids as well as adults, vote Yes on the operating levy. 

Endorsement Recaps: A look at endorsements we’ve rolled out thus far: Central Oregon Community College Director, Zone 5: Jim Clinton Sisters School District Director, Pos. 3: Jeff Smith






Thank you for covering the conflicting perceptions of smart meters in your last issue, in the article, “’Smart Readers’ Coming to Central Oregon,” as Pacific Power begins installing smart meters in Central Oregon. There is a wealth of evidence, peer-reviewed papers, and research that shows that the radio frequencies, or EMFs, from smart meters and 5G wireless technology is harmful to human health. In addition to the adverse biological effects mentioned in your piece, there is also evidence that this technology, including constantly ‘pinging’ smart meters, can cause DNA damage and thus cancer. I am concerned that Pacific Power is using misleading language to prevent objection to their widespread “upgrade.” For example, on their website, claims of “modernizing the power grid” is no more of a positive than vaping is to modernizing smoking. Pacific Power is the only winner in this rollout. The install will

save the company money, as they will no longer have personnel manually checking meters. The touted consumer benefits of being able to track your usage in real time and quicker outage notifications are minuscule compared to the risk to human health, particularly children. They also state that smart meters are “proven to be safe.” This is simply false. If anything, it is based on FCC parameters set back in 1996, well before smart phones and smart meters existed. Research now shows actual biological tolerances to be far lower than those levels. In one peer-reviewed paper from November 2018, appearing in the journal Environmental Research, the authors conclude: “Based on the evidence reviewed it is our opinion that IARC’s current categorization of RFR as a possible human carcinogen (Group 2B) should be upgraded to Carcinogenic to Humans (Group 1).” The IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) includes in Group 1 things like ionizing radiation (x-rays), firsthand and secondhand smoke, arsenic, and asbestos. Lastly, Pacific Power offers a smart meter opt out to customers for $36 per month, a prohibitive cost for many. However, there is an additional, non-publicized option of just $9 per month if you’ve been a customer for at least 12 months and you agree to have your meter read manually every four months. This is a large-scale issue hitting us regionally, where corporations stand to make more profit at the risk of public health. Thank you again for highlighting the mixed messages around this issue. —Andrew James I want to thank the Source for writing about Smart Meters that are being installed in our community by Pacific Power. We are one family who has opted out and we consciously choose to keep our analog meter. These meters (which will measure our electricity usage) are part of the “Smart Grid” which is a wireless system being installed on our homes, businesses and community. Smart meters continually transmit and repeat data to nearby cell towers/receivers for transmission to the electrical company. This increase in EMF/RF (electromagnetic field/radiation frequency) coupled with wifi routers, computers, cell phones, microwave ovens, blue tooth devices, baby monitors etc. creates a virtual electronic smog both within our home and outside of it. With the in-home devices you can choose how to use them. You can turn off your cell phone, computer, and router. A “smart meter” is a device that you cannot turn off or move, so your exposure to this source of RF is out of your control. Reported health symptoms from exposure to EMFs are headaches, nausea, anxiety,

heart palpitations, ear pain, concentration and memory problems. Most of New Mexico and several cities in California have banned smart meters due to health/safety concerns.

Watching the video of the Source Weekly’s interviews with candidates for the Zone 6 At-Large seat on the Bend-LaPine School Board has confirmed my belief that Melissa Barnes Dholakia is the most qualified candidate. I looked for the moments when Barnes Dholakia supposedly “equivocates” on the vaccination issue and “wavers” on a climate change resolution. I found thoughtful answers, nothing more. It is unfortunate that the editorial board didn’t ask how candidates would address issues raised by students of color and their families. Barnes Dholakia said at the outset of the interview that the district needs to work harder on equity as the school district changes so that all students feel a sense of “belonging” and diversity is appreciated. She was the only candidate in the interview who raised this concern. She has consistently raised the issues of equity and inclusion in candidate forums, offering specific ideas for how the district can address the abysmally low number of teachers and staff who are not white. She understands why students of color need to see themselves in front of the classroom—and why all students will benefit from more diverse staffing. Fortunately, many local advocates and organizations that are working on restorative justice,

equity, and inclusion in our schools understand that this needs to be a high priority on the school board. That is why they have endorsed and are working to elect Melissa Barnes Dholakia to the Zone 6 At-Large seat on the Bend LaPine School Board. —Michael Funke

Letter of the Week:

Michael—Thanks for watching our videos so closely. Like you, we, too, monitor other forums and resources to find out as much about candidates as we can before we endorse—and we hope others have followed your lead and have been doing the same. And as you also know, equity and inclusion in schools and elsewhere are issues we continue to champion and report upon, campaign season or not.

Those who advocate the New Green Deal and other carbon reduction initiatives, such as that contemplated by the Oregon Legislature, “will bring climate change under control.” They also assert that a carbon tax or other ‘assessment’ would save the planet by 2030 and not hurt the less affluent. While such sentiment is politically popular these days, it does not reflect any meaningful reality. China, for example, now produces more carbon than the U.S. and E.U., together. China has also asserted that they do not want to hurt their economy and they may set some carbon reduction goals by 2030. Other countries such as India and Mexico are also experiencing very high growth in carbon output. The U.S., without carbon legislation, has achieved the greatest amount of carbon reduction volume of any country to date. The Heritage Foundation calculated, using the IPCC MAGGIC Model (known to overstate temperature impact) to calculate a .052 degree C temperature increase by 2030 if all U.S. carbon emissions were eliminated this year. Even if the U.S. did eliminate all the carbon, worldwide emissions will continue to grow exponentially. Further, it is not scientifically proven how much human activity has actually affected the climate in total. Certainly, humans contribute to global warming (eg. heat islands called cities, agricultural practices, etc.), however, even the IPCC Reports have become equivocal as to the extent of human effect on climate. Many politicians use the term revenue neutral as it relates to carbon initiatives, but can we really believe them? —Quentin Stanko

he main Deschutes County Health Services building on Northeast Courtney Drive shuttered its doors on April 29 after air quality tests discovered carbon monoxide in the building. The 22-year-old building reopened May 13. According to a release from DCHS, the amount of detected carbon monoxide was “very low levels” and happened in “limited areas of the building.” According to the County, the levels of carbon monoxide detected were well below established industry workplace safety standards. Workers cannot be exposed to more than 50 parts of carbon monoxide gas per million parts of air averaged during an eighthour period, per Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines. Lee Randall, Deschutes County facilities director, told the Source the original heating system was the likely culprit for the carbon monoxide levels. He said that the County uses the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers standards for air quality, which sets its unhealthy level at nine parts of carbon monoxide per million. The CO tests in the building were below that level, according to Randall. Randall said the heating system was slated to be replaced due to age, but now the County’s looking into a hot water boiler system that uses less combustion than the current 24 HVAC units that are on the building’s roof. Randall said the system they’re looking into would have two to three boilers and isolate the combustion from the fresh air intakes. The cost for replacing the heating system with a like-for-like system would be about $250,000 to $300,000 Randall said. The boiler system would be more expensive, but Randall said it would be a better way to do things.

The building also closed in early March after the heavy snowfall in February. Randall said there may have been some gas leak issues after the system was restarted following the snow removal from the roof. The County then added flue extensions to the maximum height recommended by the HVAC manufacturer to mitigate snow covering the exhaust pipes, Randall said. The County worked with an air quality testing firm, a mechanical engineer and the Bend Fire Department to evaluate the building’s air quality and do inspections to its heating and cooling system during the March closure. During the closure, Randall said the County added a new fire alarm system that included carbon monoxide alarms. During both closures, people who use the facilities at the Health Department’s main building—which provides medical care to many low-income families, including the Women, Infants and Children nutrition program—had to reschedule appointments and the 140 people who work in the building had to do their jobs at different locations. “The Health Services staff worked hard to provide services to the public during the closures,” Randall said. Carbon monoxide is a poisonous, colorless, odorless and tasteless gas. Although it has no detectable odor, it’s often mixed with other gases that do have an odor. So, you can inhale carbon monoxide right along with gases that you can smell and not even know that CO is present, according to OSHA. Carbon monoxide is a common industrial hazard resulting from the incomplete burning of material containing carbon such as natural gas, gasoline, kerosene, oil, propane, coal, or wood— many things used for heating homes and commercial buildings. 

Making River Stewardship Habit

K.M. Collins


In its second year, Enjoy Protect Respect aims to spread the word of protecting the Deschutes River



n the heels of local writer Katy Bryce’s 2016 blog post, “Bend Is Being Loved to Death – And It’s My Fault,” many more Bendites woke up to the notion that the region is seeing negative impacts from tourism—and also from abundant activity by locals. The Enjoy Protect Respect river stewardship committee mobilized, aiming to encourage people to enjoy, protect and respect the Deschutes River— and spread that message to visitors. Nate Wyeth

Mainly orchestrated by the Upper Deschutes Watershed Council and its many decades of city-wide river cleanups, groups, including Bend Park and Recreation District, Bend BroadBand, The Old Mill District, Deschutes County Health Services (via the Shared Future Coalition) and Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe, joined as committee stakeholders. The EPR committee is now in its second year of operation, focused on spreading the message of making river stewardship a habit through several initiatives. Green Tubes Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe invites people to become Citizen Steward Ambassadors by taking out a Green Tube (free of charge), collecting trash and starting conversations with other floaters about how to help keep the Deschutes River healthy, beautiful and clean. This opportunity is also offered to organizations wanting to do a team building activity, recreate and set a good example all in one. People can rent a free Green Tube from from Tumalo Creek’s Park & Float Kiosk (adjacent to The Pavilion), along with a trash grabber and a mesh bag. While floating, people can pick up the trash they find, place it in their mesh bag, and then deposit it in the trash in a designated bin in Drake Park, at the end of the float.

A full mesh bag trash receptacle, post-Green Tube floating.

Green tubes are available to use for free.

Mitigating congested parking Parking for tubers has been moved to the Park & Float, adjacent to The Pavilion, near SW Bradbury Way and Simpson Avenue. From there, patrons can rent a tube and catch a shuttle to the put-in and at the take-out. This is meant to relieve congestion at Riverbend Park and overcrowded side streets. Free life jacket hire Free life jacket rentals are available at Riverbend Park (the typical float putin), May 25 through Sept. 3. This stewardship amenity is offered for kids and adults. Life jackets are to be returned by closing. Annual River Cleanup Locals are encouraged to join EPR and the Upper Deschutes River Watershed Council on Saturday, July 27 for the annual Deschutes River Cleanup. Volunteers help remove harmful weeds, instream debris and various rubbish from the river. Basic recommendations to protect the river The EPR group also has other basic recommendations, which locals may have heard about before. “We hope that floaters and recreational river users will work together to keep our river healthy by securing

personal belongings and trash, by abstaining from alcohol and other substance use while on the river and modeling positive behavior for others while on the river,” says Jessica McDonald, prevention communications coordinator for Deschutes County Health Services’ Shared Future Coalition, and head of the EPR committee. In addition, the EPR committee recommends people float with a buddy or group, and to wear a life jacket. Last year, someone died on the Upper Deschutes River south of Bend— along with several other close calls for individuals floating without life jackets and alone. To protect delicate vegetation, the committee reminds people to only enter and exit the river at approved access points. And finally, the EPR committee encourages locals who are “in the know” about the ways to Enjoy, Protect and Respect the Deschutes River to share what they know with those who might not.  Enjoy Protect Respect

‘Student Success Act’ on its way to Gov. Brown’s Desk WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / MAY 16, 2019 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE


HB 3427 passed along party lines after the Senate Republicans came back to the floor Monday By Chris Miller


n May 13, the Oregon Senate passed House Bill 3427—the multibillion-dollar education funding plan—along party lines 18-11 with Jackie Winters (R-Salem) excused. The “No” votes included Sen. Tim Knopp (R-Bend). If Gov. Kate Brown signs the bill into law, it’s estimated to bring in about $1 billion per year in in additional revenue for schools from a new commercial activity tax on businesses with greater than $1 million in sales per year, taking a portion of a business’ total revenue. The money would go into a “Student Success Fund,” which would fund additional education programs and other school initiatives, including smaller class sizes and more counseling services, according to the Joint Committee on Student Success.

Senate Republicans had refrained from showing up to work since May 7, preventing the 20-member quorum necessary to hold a Senate vote—with the exception of Sen. Knopp, who remained to negotiate with Democrats. “A lot of this is inside baseball,” Knopp told the Source last week. “Sometimes there are bumps in the road, but it’s all part of the process.” Republicans said they stayed away from the Capitol in part because they wanted to ask voters to enshrine a mandate in the Oregon Constitution that the new tax money could only be spent on education, not on things like the Public Employees Retirement System. According to the text of the measure, starting in 2020 about 50 percent of the money would go to grants to local school districts and 20 percent Bron Wickum

Roughly 2,000 educators, students and supports gathered May 8 to listen to speakers and march.

Students and adults marched in downtown Bend on May 8.

to programs serving toddlers and preschoolers. The rest of the money would be split between full funding for a 2016 voter-approved measure to expand career-technical classes and anti-dropout programs and initiatives to help improve school performance statewide. According to a May 13 story on Oregonlive, Democrats and Republicans reportedly brokered a deal to get the Republicans back to the Senate floor by killing two bills Republicans didn’t like— HB 3063, which would have made stricter rules on vaccinations, and SB 978, which would have been a package of gun law changes, including penalties for some gun owners who fail to lock up their weapons and a provision to allow gun dealers to refuse to sell guns to minors. “I am extremely disappointed to see that gun safety has taken a back seat in the Oregon Legislature today,” John Larson, president of the Oregon Education Association wrote in a press release on May 13. “There have been eight school shootings already this year in our country. CNN has reported that the United States has 57 times as many school shootings as the other major industrialized nations combined.” Larson’s statement said the OEA would continue to fight for the safety of students and educators and without

passing laws to increase gun safety in Oregon, that sanctuary will continue to be under threat. In another Oregonlive story, Rep. Cheri Helt (R-Bend) who was a chief sponsor of the vaccine bill, described the agreement as “disappointing.” “The bill was about saving lives, protecting children and ensuring our shared immunity from dangerous and preventable diseases,” Helt said in the story. “It’s disappointing that once again the loudest, most extreme voices in our politics prevailed and the sensible-center and thoughtful policy-making lost.” In spite of the loss of that bill—and the failure of two foster care bills she sponsored, which died in committee— Helt told the Source last week that she would “continue to work hard to serve the people of Bend, by focusing on the issues that matter to them—the success of our students in school, housing and foster care.” Central Oregon’s all-Republican House delegation, including Helt, Rep. Jack Zika (R-Redmond) and Mike McLane (R-Powell Butte) voted against the Student Success Act when it came up for a vote in the House. -Judy Stiegler met with Bend’s delegation last week, and contributed to this report.

Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office

Fire Season Off to An Early Start About 3:30pm on May 8, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office gave people in the Lazy River subdivision north of La Pine a Level 3 (go now) evacuation notice, due to a quick-moving brush fire that started from a backyard debris burn. The fire burned about 12 acres and destroyed one home, but no people were injured, according to the DCSO. The Oregon Department of Forestry wrote on its website that the unseasonably warm, dry conditions over the past week increase the risk of fire growth at a more rapid rate that ODF has seen so far this spring. The road closure on Bridge Drive at Otter Drive was reopened as of 7:30pm on May 8 and the evacuation notice was lowered to Level 1 (be ready), according to a release from the DCSO. – Chris Miller

Paul Christy, acting executive director for the festival, said the gift was meant to ensure that OSF’s artistic work is matched by its operational capacity. “We’ve grown extraordinarily over the last 10 years — by some measures we’ve doubled in size and budget,” Christy said. “We haven’t always matched that growth with structures underneath.” - April Baer, OPB

It’s that time of year… The days are warm and the nights are warming. The mountain is still open for skiing. The trails are ripe for hiking and biking. Even the rivers are ready for paddling. If you’re suffering from a case of Hyperactive Outdoors Syndrome, you’re not alone. While we can’t completely alleviate the overwhelm you might be feeling at all of the outdoor fun that could be had, we can give you a little inspiration. Let the following pages of our Source Outside Guide give you some ideas you might not have thought of before.

An epic paddleboard bike shuttle on the Deschutes, with bonus points for good company By K.M. Collins

Note: Precise locations are not divulged here. With much controversy surrounding geo-tagging and increased traffic to outdoor wild spaces, this writer feels non-disclosure is the best stewardship practice.


p-down, up-down, pothole, gravel spin-out, open toes, dusty feet. My college bestie flew in from Salt Lake City to spend a long weekend with me—and forgot her sneakers. In solidarity, I left mine in the car at the take-out. Although flip-flops aren’t the preferred #girlsgottagnar mountain bike footwear, we were slated to make our own epic. We pedaled upriver 10 or so miles, along an unrelenting gravel road and a dam, to where we’d already cached the paddle gear. During the ride, a flicker of envy flashed in me for my bestie’s Tevas— the extra straps holding the sole firmly in place on her heel, while my throwback gator flops sloppy-joed insecurely. On a good note, Pine Mountain Sports had sponsored our soiree with actual mountain bikes. I’d only ever shuttled this stretch alone, on a 1970s Australian Bike Company steel frame, thin tires, no shocks and forever forgetting my padded shammys. And getting to share the ride with company, especially my college bestie, was beyond satisfying. Without her attention to detail, I might have also missed the day’s fox sighting. Skirting down the dam and across the road no farther than 50 yards away, the fox then ducked into the woods. We unanimously agreed it was a good omen and imagined what it might foretell.

When we cycled up to the putin, our paddle gear was as we’d left it when we dropped it there with our car—paddleboards locked to a ponderosa, now coated in sap. I readied the boards and she curried the bikes out of eyeshot, securing them with locks hidden in the forest. Five minutes later we were on the water. Dip-pull, dip-pull. Current on fin. Fractals of water on bare feet. Strong upriver wind. Other river residents made themselves known, including swallows, kingfishers and a bald eagle.

Red-winged blackbirds sang us melodies reminiscent of remastered autotune lyrics. Ospreys circled overhead, threatening to demonstrate the kind of mastery in fish-catching those holding poles can only dream of. At the tail end of our float, a white belly finally dropped from the sky, plunged to the water, struggled for a moment in the shallows and flapped back to the air, overhead, fish in talons. More mutual agreement of good fortune. When my right shoulder grew weary—an effect of a recent roller-skating injury—my companion endured K.M. Collins

Combining gravel riding and paddleboarding makes for a fun female adventure.

my complaints and compassionately whimpered on my behest. In my many lone adventures, there isn’t much complaining, as there is no one to hear my cries. I contemplated the consequences of partnership. We made it to the car, where my college bestie picked up the slack. She loaded all the gear and took over driving. She humored me when I wanted to take photos every other moment. She acted interested when I droned on about the merits of social change in the outdoor industry. She braided my hair, got me a beer and made me take a shower before bed. In life and wilderness, I am comfortable alone. I am comfortable calculating the details of a strategic adventure. I am comfortable toughing out injuries. I am comfortable carrying all the weight, the burden, the consequences. However, my college bestie continually helped me realize the epic gift of companionship: togetherness. There are so many narratives for women, together in the outdoors. Sometimes they include big air, adrenaline and achievement—and sometimes that’s not what they are about at all. It’s my sincerest hope this story, as part of the Source’s Outside Guide, is a pillar supporting and validating the notion of diverse narratives in the outdoors. I suspect other women and non-cisgendered, non-white identifying people have shared in the sentiment I am articulating.

ach summer presents new opportunities for never-been-dones: Rock climb at Smith Rock State Park, in the buff. Sunbathe while naked and dozing by a secluded Cascade lake. Play ultimate frisbee while topless—or bottomless—with friends in Drake Park. Consider these perfectly legal ways to ease tan lines and demonstrate your body positivity during these sunny days in Central Oregon. While these skin-baring activities are legal, authorities say, it’s your behavior while naked that can get you in trouble. That might include having sex in public view or intentionally trying to arouse someone. But if you mind your manners and are considerate of other clothed citizens, you can enjoy the sensation of sunshine and breeze on every inch of your birthday suit. (While art criticism distinguishes between nudity and nakedness, we will use the terms interchangeably.) Rules around nudity in Bend Bend does not have a particular ordinance against nakedness—so, Oregon law is Bend law. Even a fully-naked ultimate frisbee game in Drake

Park probably wouldn’t be a problem, said Bend Police Department Lt. Jason Maniscalco. Naked in Oregon State Parks Oregon has no laws against nakedness, but there are laws about behavior while naked, said Chris Havel, spokesperson for the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. In coastal state parks, it’s not uncommon for people to discreetly disrobe on the dunes, Havel said. But dropping trou near a family gathering, for example, might create problems. In these instances, a state ranger might ask either party to relocate or return at a different time. “That’s less about nudity than it is about maintaining peace in a park,” Havel said. “While we have the authority to cite people for violating rules or ignoring the lawful request of a park ranger, we’re not police officers. When it comes to visitor behavior, our goal is to engage people in a conversation and try to get everyone to get along.” Havel can’t remember the last time the department had a problem with people exercising their right to be clothes-free.

Yes, that is Vladimir Putin without a shirt on. No, it is not against the law in our state. And no, he is not visiting Central Oregon anytime soon. That we know of.

“There is a lot of room out there,” Havel said. “We just ask that people use common sense, be discreet and understand that not everybody enjoys that form of recreation.” Wild and free in national forests In Central Oregon, the Deschutes National Forest is probably the best place to tuck away for some quiet time without clothes. The ample lakes and creeks are great for skinny dipping, and the forest is

like a campground. If you are nude and someone complains, Forest Service law enforcement officers could talk to you about the complaint and potentially make you put clothes back on to minimize or eliminate the conflict, Kern said. Kern recalled such an instance in which rangers asked two topless women visiting Elk Lake to put their tops back on. If minors are present, an adult’s nakedness may be punishable by state law.

“We just ask that people use common sense, be discreet and understand that not everybody enjoys that form of recreation.” —CHRIS HAVEL sufficiently vast. With some extra planning, you can arrive at a desolate neck of the woods to recreate in the buff, said Kassidy Kern, Deschutes National Forest spokesperson. Otherwise, clothed forest users who come across you might be shocked or uneasy about your breezy attitude toward clothing. And therein lies the potential for conflict, Kern said. Also, a group of naked people should not grow so large that its presence overwhelms the use of any particular area, Kern said. Shielding one’s campsite with visual barriers, for example, is a useful way to be mindful of others while enjoying nakedness. “We want to maintain good interactions between forest users,” Kern said. “The best way to avoid conflicts is to be respectful of each other on national forest lands, whether you’re a mountain biker, equestrian or someone who is nude or someone who is not nude.” While there is no specific prohibition of nakedness on national forest system land, users are still subject to state law. That might come into play in a developed recreation site,

“Be very conscientious about where you are,” Kern said. “If you are in a site where there are a lot of people and some are minors, that’s not really a place to be naked.” Taking photos Like many people, Tumalo resident Jason Chinchen enjoys skinny dipping in forest-lined lakes and creeks. Also a photographer and climber, Chinchen has arranged nude bouldering shoots. Chinchen gravitates to a remote section of the Deschutes National Forest, for both privacy and for good bouldering. “From my perspective as a photographer, I think it would be about respecting the people I’m photographing and anybody else who might be around,” said Chinchen, 45, who’s also known for his analogue tintype photography. “I’m not as worried about being naked as I am about whether I’m going to be cold. Skinny dipping (at 45) is different than it was at 18. I think the hyper-sexualization of that scenario goes away after you’ve been an adult and have experienced life…. Our natural state is naked.”

Local couple aims to clean up Bend, one bag of trash at a time By Keely Damara


t all started after Sydney Dickson’s car broke down on Highway 20, on the way back from work in Tumalo. While waiting for a tow truck, Dickson and her boyfriend Jamison Cook decided to fill their time by picking up trash on the side of the road. “We were hanging out on Highway 20, didn’t have anything to do, and I had some boxes in my car,” said Dickson. “It was like, well, we have nothing better to do right now. Let’s pick up garbage — and the more and more we were doing it, I was like, I can’t stop this.” What started as an altruistic time-killer quickly turned into an idea for monthly trash pickup meetups. Cook and Dickson came up with a catchy name and created an Instagram for the Bend Over and Pick Up Project right there on the side of the road. Dickson, 20, and Cook, 23, organized the first Bend Over and Pick Up Project meetup at China Hat on Earth

Day last month. They’re currently asking for small monetary donations to pay for the trash disposal. “We did just one little stretch, like less than maybe half an acre in China Hat with 10 people, and picked up maybe 15 bags of trash,” said Cook. And once you start looking for trash to pick up, Cook said, you start to notice just how much trash there really is littering trails, campgrounds and public lands. The couple hopes to organize different types of cleanups in the future, including river cleanups by paddleboard, and bike rides around town. Their main goal is to get the community involved in trash pickup and prevention, whether that’s through Bend Over and Pick Up Project meetups or inspiring like-minded individuals to organize their own. “If you want to go out you don’t have money for the materials, come to us,” said Dickson. “We’ll give you a couple bags and some gloves, because

Before—or after—outdoor adventures, Matthew Williams offers a way to move stored-up pain out of the body By Richard Sitts


atthew Williams has a goal: Helping clients move stored-up pain out of the body. As a board-certified structural integrationist, Williams says his work on the body can be intense at times. He calls the process, “movement re-education.” The goal is to develop a “recipe” for changing a person’s habit of movements. “You can’t fundamentally change someone right away,” he says. “I’m not going to fix your pain, but I will show you a path, which always begins with awareness to make small adjustments.” Slightly adjusting one part of the body leads to a different part of the body also moving, he says. Williams’ clients have included a 93-year-old woman who couldn’t get out of bed at her rest home. After 30 minutes of work, she was able to get up on her own. He’s also worked on a 15-year-old ballet dancer, a hemp farmer in his late 30s, and a landscaper in his mid 60s. All came to him with a physical pain or difficulty that they wanted to lessen and ideally, eliminate. The majority of his clients sign up for a

12-session series that he calls the “recipe.” First, he offers a free consultation of a half-hour or so, “so that I can introduce them to what I do.” Williams says he wants to change habits that clients don’t even know they have. This habitual movement helps form one’s posture, he adds. “It’s kind of like a slow dance where we’re both participating. I want them to find new ways to be in their

and your ability to function and do stuff. We might not be able to eliminate pain, but we can help people function better.”

“Movements create habits and habits create your form, structure and your ability to function and do stuff. We might not be able to eliminate pain, but we can help people function better.” —MATTHEW WILLIAMS body. The way that we work together is what’s important. I move you and you move. Movements create habits and habits create your form, structure

To help achieve his board-certified status, Williams did more than 500 hours of training with Thomas Myers in Maine. Myers, in turn, learned from

Dr. Ida Pauline Rolf, who developed the “Rolfing” practice that is named after her. She died in 1979. Recently, Williams—who also works with his hands as the drummer for local dance band, Chiringa—was in the process of rebranding his practice when a client’s words struck a chord with him. While he was working along muscles and tissues, the longtime client looked up and told him, “Matthew, you sure are a merciful muscle masher.” Williams related this to his graphic designer, who saw it as M cubed. The new name took hold: M Cubed Structural Integration. The motto on his business card is, “Stand Taller, Feel Better.”

FINALIZED By Nicole Vulcan


t’s been in the works since 2016—but on May 10, officials from the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests issued a Final Decision on the plan that manages entry at trailheads in the Mount Jefferson, Mount Washington and Three Sisters wilderness areas in the Central Cascades. The plan is a scaled-back version of what officials revealed in a Draft Decision in November. Under the Final Decision, just 19 of 79 trailheads will fall under a day-use permit quota system— instead of the 30 trailheads proposed under November’s Draft Decision. At the same time, all trailheads fall under a permit and quota system for overnight use. In response to what officials called a “noticeable spike in use” in some “locations and high-use travel corridors since 2011, and most noticeably in 2016,” the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests launched

the Central Cascades Wilderness Strategies Project—an effort to preserve wilderness, while also allowing people to recreate there. “We are proud to issue this decision to protect the character of these special places for future generations,” John Allen, the forest supervisor for the Deschutes National Forest and Tracy Beck, the forest supervisor for the Willamette National Forest, stated in a release. Starting next year, each person visiting the affected trails for the day will need their own day-use permit. In the Three Sisters Wilderness—which includes several popular trails along the Cascade Lakes Highway—10 trailheads will require a day-use permit. People staying overnight will need an overnight permit, issued per group, rather than per person. Trails falling under day-use permit requirements starting in 2020 include Broken Top (max of 40 day-use permits),

permits required from the Friday before Memorial Day weekend through the last Friday in September. While officials have not yet set a plan for how and when people can get permits, the Final Decision states, “It is our commitment to allow for a portion of permits/use to be reserved in advance and the remainder to be available on the day or day before a trip starts; for day use, the majority of permits will be available shortly before the trip starts. For overnight use, the majority of use will be reservable.” What happens next: Implementing the plan, with input from the public.

Forest Service announces Final Decision on quotas, removing some trails from the initial list


Crater Ditch (16), Devils Lake/Wickiup (100), Green Lakes/Soda Creek (80), Lava Camp (40), Obsidian (30), Scott Trailhead (12), Sisters Mirror (16), Tam McArthur Rim (80) and Todd Lake (12.) In the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness, trails that will be under a day-use permit system starting in 2020 include PCT Breitenbush/ Breitenbush Lake (4 day-use permits), Duffy Lake (30), Jack Lake (60), Marion Lake (40), Pamelia Lake (24), South Breitenbush (12) and Whitewater (30). In the Mt. Washington Wilderness, two trailheads will require day-use permits, including Benson/Tenas (30 day-use permits) and PCT McKenzie Pass (24). Waldo Lake and Diamond Peak Wilderness areas will not have limits on day use or overnight use. For long-distance hikers, the Pacific Crest Trail Association already issues a permit for hikers who walk more than 500 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail. Hikers who hike fewer than 500 miles will be able to obtain one permit to cross the three wilderness areas under the new plan. Another change: Campire bans above a certain elevation. Under the Decision, no campfires are allowed above the 5,700-foot elevation in the Three Sisters, Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Washington Wildernesses, or above the 6,000foot elevation in the Diamond Peak Wilderness. The new quota and permit system will go into effect in the summer of 2020, with

Preserve Inspires an Opus ‘Malheur Symphony’ concludes COS season By Elizabeth Warnimont Jeff Sorn

Central Oregon Symphony Spring Concert Sat., May 18, 7:30pm  Sun., May 19, 2pm  Mon,, May 20, 7:30pm Bend High School Auditorium 230 NE 6th St, Bend Free; tickets required

Local Scene Chris Thomas incorporated sounds including wind and birds into his composition inspired by the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, which makes up the end portion of the upcoming spring concert.

Gesme suggested to Bowerman a few composers he thought might be interested. “I knew the kind of stuff that Chris had done. What he was describing, and what I know Chris does well. We talked to Chris first—and we didn’t need to talk anymore.” At that initial meeting, Bowerman asked the composer how he felt about the idea. “I said it’s a shame,” Thomas says. “There’s this place in Oregon all my friends around the country now are looking at as synonymous with political extremism and divisive rhetoric. It’s something I’m tired of.” Bowerman suggested they “hijack that conversation” and remind people of something they all have in common. “We’ve got this beautiful place we can all agree is worth celebrating.” Thomas says his favorite sounds from the recording sessions at Malheur are of the wind in the grass. “One of the first overwhelming experiences I had was the actual vastness of the place,” he recalls. He was also impressed with the natural diversity of the landscape. “You go down to some places and it’s a wetland. You would

not expect that in the middle of a desert. Then you go far south and it starts getting mountainous, with lakes, then after a little bit you’re at the foot of the Steens.” The symphony, which makes up the second half of the concert, is heavily laden with the sounds of the wilderness refuge, echoed by and incorporated with the instruments. “I tried to write this to be cinematically evocative. Image-inspiring,” Thomas says. “I’m literally painting an image with the refuge birds.” The spring program opens with “Songs of a Wayfarer” by Gustav Mahler, a song cycle for baritone and piano, featuring Zachary Lenox. “The pieces (the artists chose) ended up being the perfect lineup,” Gesme says. “Music from Mozart, so you’ve got classical, kind of light and happy, then we’ve got Mahler, which is super, in-his-head, early 20th century, then you’ve got Donizetti, which is the Italian-opera, big fat sound, then we skip ahead a hundred years to (the Malheur). So, it’s like some 200 years of music history, just by chance.”

hen asked whether his newest symphony was borne of a desire to bring back a positive association for the massive, scenic Malheur National Wildlife Refuge of southeastern Oregon, Chris Thomas is quick to respond in the affirmative. “That was the entire point,” he confirms. While hiking in Wisconsin, the Central Oregon Symphony cellist and composer was inspired by the pure, musical sound of some simple bird calls. Several months later, COS Director Michael Gesme approached him regarding a musical composition that would incorporate sounds of nature from the Malheur preserve. The idea actually started with Bendite Jay Bowerman, a retired biology teacher (and former U.S. biathlon champion). Bowerman told Gesme he was listening to a piece of music that incorporated a lot of nature sounds, and it got him thinking. “Because it all kind of happened around the same time that the—how should I say—the trials of the folks that were at Malheur, when all of that was kind of coming down,” Gesme recalls. “Because he was a naturalist, that whole thing kind of (upset him).” Since the occupation of the refuge’s headquarters complex by armed protesters in 2016, the name ‘Malheur’ has become closely associated with that turn of events. “He was frustrated with that,” Gesme explains. “It’s a place that’s been around thousands of years, occupied by Native Americans for 10,000 years. He was trying to dream up a way to reclaim Malheur as the place that it is and not the people who came for a couple of days and did all of that. That was the spark.”

Coyotes and Peanut Butter

Jared & The Mill are synced up and doing things to the band’s own groove By Isaac Biehl Submitted

Jared & The Mill perform with Wilderness at the Volcanic Theatre Pub on May 19.

something we were necessarily expecting to happen right away. The reaction has been more than we could have hoped for and people are really jazzed about it. SW: When I go through the album it feels like it’s tackling the things in life that leave those stamps or scars, through each person’s story. Was that sort of the theme you guys were going for? JK: Honestly man, we didn’t really set out to make, like, a concept record. It was more like let’s just take the songs we really love, that we relate to the hardest and put them on tape. We ended up realizing that these songs are kind of interwoven. It’s because we literally spend the majority of the year with each other—for the majority of the year we are actually like no more than 30 feet apart from each other. So we have a very shared similar experience in how our lives have been going. Without meaning to we put out a record that’s about the trials and tribulations of breaking through your 20s and becoming the person you want to be.

SW: You have three interludes on the album. On “Jared & The Mill Sucks,” the guy talks about seeing you eat peanut butter with a spork. Is that something you really do? JK: I love peanut butter. I eat a lot of it – I probably eat way too much of it. He definitely saw that. It’s funny that that’s referenced. Every once in a while people will see me walk out of the green room with a jar of peanut butter. Maybe there’s no bread in the green room or maybe there’s nothing to put on there – or, maybe I’m just in the mood to eat some f*cking peanut butter. Dude, it’s basically ice cream without the sugar and the dairy. Jared & The Mill w/ Wilderness Sun., May 19, 8pm Volcanic Theatre Pub 70 SW Century Dr., Bend $10

ared Kolesar is very grateful for what he does. This much is abundantly clear as we speak on the phone. The Jared & The Mill frontman gets to make music and tour with people who are friends first, band members second. Kolesar credits the band’s open communication to being its biggest strength throughout the years. The five piece’s latest album, “This Story Is No Longer Available,” is a punch. It’s nostalgic in a way that makes you think about all of those possible regrets—but also in a way that makes you appreciate how far you’ve come. Jared & The Mill use a mix of rock and folk-inspired sounds to leave its mark – almost like a singer/songwriter act with a much sharper edge. To compare with a similar sound, Mumford & Sons is one of the bands that immediately comes to mind. During our conversation, Kolesar talked about the band’s fans, the new album and his unconditional love for… peanut butter? Source Weekly: Give me a little backstory. How did you guys all meet? Jared Kolesar: We met in college. Me and Larry, the lead guitarist in the band, we shared a friend named Emily who put us in touch with one another because she figured – well we both play music and we might benefit from meeting. Turns out we did because we started a band and we’ve been doing it for eight years now. We played like two or three shows and didn’t think it was going to go anywhere too drastic. But we got some fans by like the third show and they were singing along to our songs that they knew and it was really crazy. So, we kind

of figured why not keep on pushing and see how far we get. SW: What did it feel like noticing people singing along for the first time? JK: Dude, it’s still f*ckin weird. You write a song in your room and like a year or two later there’s a bunch of people in front of you and they know every word by heart and they’re singing it and they’re like closing their eyes and really feeling the music. It’s like, ‘Damn! This is really odd.’ SW: You guys call your fans “The Pack.” How did that come about? JK: It kind of came about really naturally. Me and Mike, who plays banjo in the band, we’ve been buddies for a long time. We always had a weird fixation on coyotes. There’s a lot of coyotes in Arizona and we think they’re really special, cool animals. They’re kind of gnarly little bastards at the same time. They’re not the same as large majestic wolves. I’ve seen a coyote with three legs before just kickin’ it on the side of the road. They’re just little survivors. And we were like that. That translated over to our fanbase, because we really feel like they are a part of our identity. They give us reason to do what we do. They keep us alive the same way a pack keeps a coyote alive. SW: You guys put out “The Story Is No Longer Available” this year. What’s it like having that out for a little while now and reflecting on the process? JK: Dude, it is so cool. A lot of times you put out new music and when you go on tour people like want to hear the songs they know – your older catalog more. But they’re all really excited to hear the songs we’ve released from “The Story Is No Longer Available.” It is not

A Community Thread: Dorothy West

A Community Thread: What matters to you? Dorothy West: The highest possible frequency that we can move through day to day—that’s what matters to me. I think people are our big, untapped resource. I think that relationships provide our evolution. And when we walk by each other without recognizing that, it’s a big waste. That when two or more of us talk about something other than appearances, we start to tap into the potential of raising the frequency and living as all that we are, as opposed to this teeny, tiny percentage of that. So, people matter most to me. I think when we explore the value in our relationships and in our potential, everything else gets handled. When we’re looking at each other as valuable and all the potential of contribution, stuff like our relationship with the planet, our relationship with the future—all that gets handled. Once I know you, I don’t want to hurt you. Once I know who you are and what your gifts are, I just want to support you.  ACT: What concerns you? DW: I don’t focus a lot of my attention on what I don’t like, so I can answer the question by looking at where I think I could have impact. Big impact, for

ACT: Social injustices have a central theme of inequality. What’s going to be the thing to bring people together to focus on the root of that problem instead of working on the many forms it takes? And what’s your role in that? DW: OK, my first answer is that if we talk more about what we want and less about what we don’t want, we find more commonality. It becomes more broad and, at the same time, more specific; it’s for everyone and


Students showcase work at COCC Annual student exhibition on display By Teafly Peterson


he annual Spring Student Art Exhibition at Central Oregon Community College is now on display at the COCC Barber Library Rotunda Gallery and in the Pence Pinckney Gallery. It’s a showcase that brims with life. The work spans across multiple mediums, and in itself is a fine showcase of the studio classes being offered at COCC. This year, the selection process of the students changed. Instead of being open to all student submissions, art faculty members had the opportunity to nominate up



it’s the same thing. So, I think the first thing is to stop fighting something and be for something. What’s mine to do is to refuse to give my focus or my attention or anything of mine to anything I don’t want. So, I will not participate in anything that’s a fight against something. But I’m happy to participate in something that’s for what I want. The other piece of that is as long as we name an enemy, we’re continuing to create a right and wrong polarity—us and them. To think that there is someone who’s not affected by the suffering of someone else—that’s an illusion. If there is suffering, we are all affected. So, you might get out of your lifetime believing that you weren’t affected, but you were. And certainly, anybody you left behind will continue to be affected. ACT: Do you have a sense of purpose? DW: I do! My purpose is to raise the frequency on the planet. And sometimes that’s easy as a smile and sometimes that’s tearing my hair out to get the words just right in something I’m gonna put out. And sometimes it’s speaking when it feels a little risky. But that’s my purpose—to raise the frequency. It’s to share with every person I come across that you are a creator. You have value in you to express. And if you take your focus off of money for just 24 hours, you get in touch with it faster. Read or hear the entire interview at

By Joshua Langlais me, is an evolution of the education system. Where the message is delivered early that we’re unique, powerful creators with contribution to make; not pegs that need to try and fit into pre-drilled holes. Along those same lines, art of all kinds—as much as possible for as much of the day as possible for every child, everywhere. I don’t really care if it’s sidewalk chalk or something structured in a classroom, but that personal expression that’s an art form being introduced early with a lot of plentiful time and resources and space. I think a lot of the resistance that we find is our resistance to being prescribed the expectation that we’re gonna show up a particular way. Globally, that’s what we’re resisting. And I think if we just open that up and give everybody space to express who they really are, it would take care of most of the resistance that we’re finding. When we feel seen and appreciated, it makes it easier for us to love and care for others. So, yeah, give a kid a crayon!

The “AJ Special”

Keto-Friendly Camp Food: Shrimp Fajitas

By Isaac Biehl

Anytime I go on a backpacking trip, the one consistent item I buy at the store is a bag of flour tortillas. For one, they’re light and compact. Two, they have a variety of uses. You can eat them plain, make a tuna melt with your mess kit and stove or, if you’re feeling froggy, you can make the “AJ Special.” I call it this because a family friend named AJ got me hooked on these in high school. It’s quick, cheap and super delicious.

Keely Damara

By Keely Damara

If you’re on a diet, or recently made a few lifestyle changes that include an overhaul of your food choices, the prospect of keeping your momentum going in an uncontrolled environment — such as camping with friends—may seem a bit daunting. Recently, my boyfriend and I started following a (mostly) keto diet. The simplified explanation of a keto diet Isaac Biehl

Fajitas can be prepped in foil packets and cooked on a grill for easy cleanup.

What you’ll need: • Fajita Seasoning to taste (chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and salt) • Avocado Oil (my preference, but olive oil is also a good choice) • Red, yellow & orange bell peppers • White or red onion • Jalapeño (if you like a little more kick) • Cilantro, lime & avocado for toppings • Low-carb tortillas, lettuce wraps or cauliflower rice How to make it: Use frozen, pre-cooked, extra small shrimp with the tails removed. The packets are easy to throw in a cooler and will be easy to thaw when you’re ready to prep them. Prep your veggies at home and throw them in a reusable container. If prepped in foil packets, you can throw

them on a grill. If you don’t have a grill, sauté all the ingredients in a cast iron skillet on a camp stove. If you’re feeling like a go-getter, marinate the thawed shrimp in lime juice and fajita seasoning for 10 minutes or so before cooking for some extra flavor.

Camp-Made Bolognese By Chris Miller

I’ve been fly fishing for steelhead for over 20 years—many of these years on remote rivers in Oregon. In my early days, my fishing partner Hans and I would eat typical 20-year-old men fare: canned chili, hotdogs and other garbage. But about 15 years ago, I learned to cook, and the chili brigade ended. Now we take healthful meals—like canned fish and quinoa—but still have the last night feast of Camp-Made Bolognese. Nathan Shipps / Unsplash

The "AJ Special" can be made—and devoured—in a Jif.

What you’ll need: • Peanut butter (or if you’re allergic to nuts, any alternative spread of your choosing) • A crunchy cereal. I use Corn Flakes, but feel free to use another. • Chocolate chips • 1 banana • 1 tortilla How to make it: Spread the peanut butter around the tortilla to whatever amount you feel comfortable with. Then, slice up the banana and place it – followed by the Corn Flakes and chocolate chips—onto the tortilla. Once folded, bam – you’re done! Store it easily in a reusable bag, wrap or however else you carry your

is eating a minimal amount of carbs, more healthy fats and a moderate amount of protein. If you’re going on a shorter one to two-day camping trip, a well-packed cooler will keep your options pretty flexible. A carton of egg whites can fit in a cooler, though dehydrated eggs are also a great option, and protein pancake batter (pre-made and stored in a water bottle) makes easy on-site prep and cleanup. While there are plenty of keto-friendly meal bars and shakes to fill out your day, it’s nice to have a solid dinner while sitting around the campfire. Even if you’re not following a low-carb diet, these shrimp fajitas will hit the spot, making for some all-around happy campers.

Using a camp stove isn’t just for scrambled eggs or boiling water. You can make delicious Italian food, too.

Since we’re able to drive in to camp, we have the good fortune of large coolers and the ability to bring red wine—essential to bolognese. It takes a while to make, especially with a two-burner Coleman stove, but it’s well worth the time invested, and you’ve got red wine to enjoy!

How to make it: Heat olive oil in a pan. When hot, add steak cut into bite-sized pieces and seasoned with salt and pepper. Brown meat and then remove and set aside. Add more oil to pan if needed and add garlic, onions, shredded carrots and celery. Cook until carrots and celery

What you’ll need: • Cast iron pie iron • Cinnamon bread • Nutella • Marshmallow spread (You can use small marshmallows too, but we were aiming for everything Next Level) • Graham crackers (We opted for Teddy Grahams, bite-sized and easy to use) • Oil

Simmer the red wine down until nearly gone. Then add pasta sauce. I personally use Newman’s Own tomato and basil. If I were making the dish at home, it would all be handmade. But hey, we’re camping. Pour sauce over cooked noodles and mangia!

Next Level S’Mores By Nicole Vulcan

You’ve likely had them during countless camping adventures—so to mix it up a bit, my family and I set out to make some truly Next Level S’Mores. Warning: These are neither Keto nor healthful, but we bought

spread a little oil on the insides of your pie iron. Place one piece of bread inside one side of the pie iron. The easy route is to dab a large tablespoon full of both Nutella and marshmallow spread on the center of that piece of bread, and then add crumbled graham crackers on top (or place a few Teddy Grahams on instead). Then add your second piece of bread over top and close the pie iron. The harder route is to carefully sweep your Nutella and marshmallow spread over the bread in a grid-like fashion, adding the grahams in an orderly, artsy manner, like my kiddo did—but either way, it’s all going to melt together. Stick that pie iron into the coals or embers of your fire and wait about five minutes before opening up to check the bread. When it looks toasted on both sides, it’s time to open the iron over a plate, and revel in the wonder of Next Level S’Mores.

What you’ll need: • Steak • Olive oil • Garlic, onions, shredded carrots, celery • Beef broth • Red wine • Pasta sauce • Spaghetti noodles

everything at Newport Market—so that’s something, right? Years ago, a friend handed down an old-fashioned pie iron to us, which we never used ‘til now. And now that I’ve used it, I can imagine all sorts of delicious uses. Pizza pockets? Chinese style dumplings? Fresh berry pies? Yes, yes and yes. For now, though, we started with the S’Mores.

ack for its seventh year, Central Oregon Beer Week begins with a kickoff party Friday night at Kobold Brewing’s The Vault Taphouse. The festival, now under the direction of the Central Oregon Brewer’s Guild, runs from Friday May 17 to Sunday May 26. The “Beer Week” phenomenon began in 2007 with Philadelphia Beer Week. It then jumped coasts in 2008 with the creation of San Francisco Beer Week. These early beer weeks were created to elevate good beer’s visibility with a blitzkrieg of beer events crammed into a 10-day time period. It seems today that every week could be beer week—but when Philly Beer Week began, the country had just 1,500 breweries, compared to over 7,000 today. At that point, “craft” beer was still a niche product, and you could argue that “beer weeks” played a part in mainstreaming good beer. Today over 100 cities host “beer weeks,” including Central Oregon. Central Oregon Beer Week began in 2012 and has remained a fixture on the annual calendar since. Events throughout the week include beer dinners, game nights and tap takeovers along with much more. Broken Top Bottle Shop will once again serve as a mini hub for COBW events with individual breweries hosting their own events throughout the week. Bridging the gap between professional brewers and homebrewers, the Central Oregon Brewer’s Guild teamed up with the Central Oregon Homebrewers Organization to organize a homebrew competition where the winners were paired with a brewery to brew the winning beers. Those beers will be poured on Saturday at Boneyard’s Division Street pub as part of a Pro-Am tap takeover and meet-the-brewer event. Beer weeks historically start or end with a larger festival event. This year, COBW is bookended by festivals. Bend Brewing Company hosts its second annual Sour Fest May 18 featuring sour beers from some of the best sour beer producers in the Northwest.





A fundraiser for Cascade Armory’s legal battle with Under Armour • Featuring Cascade Amory Discounted Gear Sale • Tasting by Riverbend Brewing • All proceeds from Riverbend’s Blunder Armour IPA sold at JC’s that night will be donated to Cascade Armory

St. Francis School. SMASH is an acronym for Single Malt and Single Hop, and the festival features exclusively SMASH beers, allowing people to learn what individual hops and malts taste like. Festival attendees vote on their favorite SMASH beer. The winning brewery is honored with not only bragging rights but with hosting the following year’s kickoff party. Although it seems that every week is beer week, Central Oregon Beer Week provides a cavalcade of unique events that allow beer drinkers to rub elbows with their favorite brewers and collectively celebrate the amazing wealth of beer culture we have in Central Oregon.

AMAZING GRACE: A documentary

focused on Aretha Franklin’s recording of the album “Amazing Grace” at the New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts. She’s a national treasure, so this should be an unmissable documentary. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

ASK DR. RUTH: The Doctor known as Ruth is America’s most famous sex therapist, and it’s about time her remarkable story was told. From Holocaust survivor to the sexual revolution, she’s seen it all and this documentary covers all the bases. Tin Pan Theater AVENGERS: ENDGAME: After 11 years and 22 movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we’ve come to know it reaches its end. With the amount of hype leveled toward this movie, it’s kind of astounding that the film not only sticks the landing but manages to be an emotional powerhouse for anyone invested in this story. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

CAPTAIN MARVEL: The 21st installment

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

C E L E B R AT I N G 2 0 Y E A R S O F S U S TA I N A B L E W I N E M A K I N G


GLORIA BELL: Julianne Moore gives one of her finest performances as a woman who finds love at a time where she was searching for anything but something serious. A surprising and heartfelt little movie. Odem Theater Pub HAIL SATAN?: A hilarious and at times pro-

found look at the new, much-less-creepy Satanic Church as they advocate for religious freedom and a few other pretty important things. The perfect antidote to Satanic Panic and a very smart look at a taboo subject. Tin Pan Theater

HOTEL MUMBAI: An intense and nail-biting recreation of the terrorist attack against the Taj hotel in Mumbai. Heart pounding and deeply unsettling, “Hotel Mumbai” is very tough to watch. Odem Theater Pub LITTLE WOODS: Tessa Thompson and Lily James in a thriller reminiscent of “Winter’s Bone” and “Wind River” is just about the best thing I can imagine. One of the finest directorial debuts of the year from Nia DaCosta. Odem Theater Pub. LONG SHOT: While on the surface this looks

like another “Seth Rogan Dates Someone Prettier Than Him” movie, director Jonathan Levine (“The Wackness”) is a filmmaker who usually avoids the genre’s cliches. Plus, Charlize Theron is an inter)national treasure. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

MARY MAGDALENE: A film that portrays

Mary Magdalene as an almost-revolutionary and fiercely dedicated apostle. For those not interested in the story, the film is worth watch-

ing just to see the always underrated Rooney Mara as Mary and a deeply committed Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus. Sisters Movie House


a little too old for the Pokemon boom back in the ‘90s, but “Detective Pikachu” looks adorable and also kinda surreal. With Ryan Reynolds voicing the titular character, consider me a possible convert. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema, Odem Theater Pub

POMS: Has there been a good cheerleader mov-

ie since the original “Bring it On?” Not really. But with a cast featuring Diane Keaton, Rhea Perlman, Jacki Weaver and the goddess Pam Grier, this one might very well break the streak. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

SHAZAM!: Imagine the plot of “Big” but

Tom Hanks could fly and shoot electricity from himself and you basically have “Shazam!” DC films is on a roll after finally figuring out that superhero movies are better when they’re fun. Odem Theater Pub

TEEN SPIRIT: While the film tells a tale we’ve seen many times before, the central performance from Elle Fanning is astounding in this look at what makes a modern Cinderella story. Surprisingly delightful. Sisters Movie House

THE HUSTLE: Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson are both delightful, but playing con artists is always tricky. Melissa McCarthy tried and failed miserably in “Identity Thief,” and this one doesn’t look much better after watching the absolutely dire trailers. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE MUSTANG: Matthias Schoenaerts and Connie Britton star in this powerful drama about a convict participating in a program to train wild mustangs. This one’s guaranteed to bring tears to even the most hardened of viewers. Odem Theater Pub THE INTRUDER: Dennis Quaid as a creepy stalker is something I’ve always wanted to see and something I’m sure Meg Ryan is ready to forget. Ahhh, just kidding. I’m sure Dennis is nowhere near as insane as his brother Randy. Seriously though, this movie looks like a lot of fun. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX TOLKIEN: A film chronicling the creative early life of JRR Tolkien is long overdue, but the fact that his own family has completely rejected the biopic isn’t a very good sign. Still, the cast looks game and he had one hell of a life, so cautious optimism is in order. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX UGLYDOLLS: Now, I’m not saying this movie looks like a soulless marketing tie-in to the Uglydolls stuffed toys, but it really kinda does. At the same time, if the film has a message for children that says they don’t have to feel bad about their third eye or vestigial tail, then more power to this cynical cross-promotion. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

 STREAMING THIS WEEK THE SOCIETY: A bunch of high school


students are headed out on a field trip and instead are dropped off at an identical replication of their hometown—only all the parents are gone and there’s a different solar system in the sky. The absolute definition of binge-worthy TV.

Big Movies SCREEN Little The Best Indies of 2019…so far By Jared Rasic Here are a few of the best “indie” releases of 2019 so far. "High Life": Writer/Director Claire Denis has never been a huge box office draw due to how uncomfortable and unsettling her films usually are, and “High Life” is no exception. Thematically, the film is about isolation and connection, but on the surface it has Juliette Binoche as a mad scientist on a spaceship filled with death row inmates using a sex chair in an austere chamber colloquially known as the “F***box”—that is, when she’s not trying to harvest energy from a nearby black hole. Imagine that plot taken super seriously and French as all hell. Courtesy IMDb

"Under the Silver Lake."

"Piercing": From Nicolas Pesce, the director of the off-beat horror masterpiece “The Eyes of My Mother,” comes a provocative and fascinating look at two disturbed individuals unleashing every single kink they can think of on each other. You might not like this movie, but I guarantee you’ll never forget it. "Under the Silver Lake": A hilarious neo-noir pop adventure that deconstructs the male gaze while also telling an unpredictable detective story about a missing woman and the creeper trying to find her. Andrew Garfield gives his best performance to date as a broke idiot way in over his head getting sucked into secret societies, disturbing conspiracies and all kinds of other weirdness. "High Flying Bird": Picture a film a lot like “Moneyball” but directed by the great Steven Soderbergh and focused on

"High Life" is one you shouldn’t miss.

Now Our Watch Begins By Jared Rasic SPOILERS e’ve always been promised fire and blood, but not like this. While there are victories, the cost is too great for any of this to be triumphant. Some shots are so achingly gorgeous that the ugliness is made even more powerful. But the show tricked us. It made us look forward to the battles, but they’re not fun anymore. “Game of Thrones” has always made its wars heroic and epic and exciting and while there are certainly moments of that, this episode is all about the horrors of war. None of this is glamorous or designed to titillate; instead our heroes are villains, our villains are finally human and the townspeople of King’s Landing are nothing but victims of another pointless war.


Everything that didn’t work in last week’s episode absolutely sings here. Some of the strange character choices make much more sense, now that the endgame is here. Little moments from season one come full circle and give us some extraordinary moments of catharsis and relief. There are beautiful moments of mercy and kindness, but it’s all beset by chaos and bloodshed. Jon Snow knows nothing. Arya learns how to let go. Dany once and for all proves what kind of Targaryen she really is. The things Jaime does for love. The Hound lets vengeance and fire swallow him whole. Here we are. Fire and blood. Are we having fun yet?

basketball instead of baseball. This absolutely hypnotic look at how the NBA can easily exploit the players they view as commodities instead of human beings is one of the most empathetic sports films ever made. This one is a Netflix original, so catch it whenever you’re in the mood for something that will make you smile. "The Standoff at Sparrow Creek": The most intense film I’ve seen all year is also ridiculously entertaining and well acted. A group of men meet at a warehouse filled with guns and survival gear to discuss a shooting that just happened at a police funeral. They are a secret, anti-government militia and they’re all positive they’ll be blamed for the shooting. When it looks like one of them might be the shooter, the film becomes a paranoid pressure cooker that will keep you glued to the screen.  Photo Courtesy of HBO

o far, 2019 has been huge for blockbusters, with two Marvel movies making over a billion dollars and “Us” rakin g in more than any other original horror movie in history. Basically, the big old studio movies are still crushing the box office, but the smaller films are making less than ever before. Mid-budget movies are hardly even made anymore, with almost every release being either a micro-budget independent or a $100 million-plus blockbuster. Everyone has seen “Endgame” or “Captain Marvel” or “Shazam!,” but what about the smaller movies that might have slipped under your radar?

Getting started “I was the son of a ski shop manager, and always lived within close proximity of a ski hill,”’ says Barry Galvin, a 26-year veteran for brands including Volkl, Dalbello and POC. “I skied all day, every day. I was THAT kid. I absolutely hated being inside the lodge.” His love of skiing took him to racing, eventually earning a coveted spot on the U.S. Ski Team from ‘84 to ‘90. The hard-working Galvin has learned a thing or two about being successful in the business. “My mentor has only given me a few solid rules. One: Do whatever you can to help solve a retailer’s problem. Two: Don’t lie,” he says. “I probably lost some sales over the years for that one,” he muses. “I want to give my retailers the best possible advantage at being successful for the brands they have invested in.” Knowing the product and believing in it are also key. “The most productive method of selling a brand or product is by delivering the customer

a game-changing experience. The first time I rode a 29-inch mountain bike, for example, I was hooked. I could never go back (to the 26-inch wheel size).” Pursue your passions Abby Seymour feels fortunate to have grown with brands that parallel her passions. “When I first decided that I wanted a career in the outdoor industry, I was skiing, biking, climbing and was dedicated to my yoga practice,” she says. “The brands I partnered with reflected those passions. I was relatable, I could help buyers really zero in on product specific to their customer base,” she says. Seymour and her husband, Thomas, currently represent Prana, Dynafit, RAB and Picky Bars. “With a growing passion for water sports, I started to grow our surf/swim brands and focus on the everyday lifestyle consumer as well,” says Seymour. “In turning my passions into my day job while living in Bend, I feel enormously lucky,” she says. Now a veteran in the business, Seymour is able to help change the direction of the industry. submitted

Barry Galvin skied his way into his career.


“As a female and a mother to a daughter, I find it important to bring awareness around the gender gap that exists in our industry, other representatives and product availability,” she says. For years, and still present today, I purchase gear and clothing that is specifically designed for the male frame. When I look around, I see just as many women committed to the outdoors as I do men, especially here in Bend. We’re seeing brands take small steps in thoughtful designs, color and fit offering, and products reps like me, who are on the front lines, make it our job to communicate the lack of offerings, so it becomes a focus,” she says. Work hard. Really hard. Many people in the industry get their start as an associate or technical rep. As an employee for a sales group, reps like Nick Whitman often work the longest hours, see the most retailers, and drive the most miles. As a tech rep for products including Niche Snowboards and Eddyline Kayaks, Whitman is on the road year-round. “Last year I basically circumnavigated the U.S.,” he says. Whitman maintains a bright and fun attitude despite the workload. “It’s hard to believe I started as a parttime employee at a skate/snow/climbing shop 15 years ago,” he says. Having worked on the retail end of the industry as well has served Whitman well. The most important lessons he has learned include patience, preparation, follow-up and persistence. It’s not all work, however. “I get plenty of opportunities to snowboard and paddle with friends, family and retailers,” says Whitman. And, as one might suspect, rep life keeps these road warriors in the hottest gear, while setting the trends, 365 days a year. 

A furry gravel ride: The Alpaca Loop By David Sword

As the interest in gravel riding continues to grow at a feverish pace, people are mapping out more and more routes. Apps including Strava and Map My Ride allow people to develop and share routes with others, thus increasing the exposure. One such ride, ridden for year by locals, and recently penned by the gravel crazed folks at Dirty Freehub, is called The Alpaca Loop—a gravel bike route that should be on your list. For those familiar with routes such as Twin Bridges or Lower Bridge, you’ll see the Alpaca Loop shares some of those pathways. Starting in Tumalo, or in Bend, the Alpaca rolls through 45 miles of tarmac and gravel of various “smoothness.” Rated by Dirty Freehub as a “moderate” ride, only one roughand-tumble section of moon rocks puts the route into that classification. Like most bike rides in Central Oregon, the climbing is rolling, with a punchy hill or two to keep you honest. You’ll cycle past sweeping views of the Cascades, various public lands and farmlands, and ranches that are home for hundreds of the route’s namesakes: the alpaca. Raised by the Incas over 6,000 years ago for their soft and manageable fur, the alpaca is a distant cousin of the camel. For this ride, bring water, a camera, and be ready to smile and sweat. Best ridden in fall, winter and spring, get on the Alpaca before the moon dust settles in. For complete route description, search on Map My Ride GPS, or Dirty Freehub.  Dirty Freehub

rom skiing to biking to climbing, Central Oregon attracts outdoor enthusiasts worldwide. Many people work hard during the week to get out and about on the weekends—but a small cadre of committed enthusiasts make their lives and careers out of the industries that support the lifestyle. Being a product rep for a ski, surf, bike or climbing brand might look fun and glamorous—but being successful takes an enormous amount of work and insight. From extended road trips covering three to five states, to sales meetings and countless hours on the computer and phone, being an outdoor industry sales rep is a challenging, yet rewarding career path. We chatted with some locally based reps about why they do what they do.

What Goes Up Must Come Down

Decrease of trout on the Crooked River affects more than just the ecosystem By Alex Laakmann Jeff Hollet


he Crooked River is one of Central Oregon’s most iconic fishing destinations, winding through stunning basalt gorges and beautiful high desert terrain. It used to be a dependable trout fishery that would draw fishermen from across the region. But what goes up, must come down. In 2015, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife surveyed the Crooked River, documenting around 1,400 Redband trout per kilometer. The next year, they found fewer than 200. This not only affected the

river’s ecosystem, but guiding services at local fly shops lost revenue as well. According to ODFW, the most devastating factor contributing to the decline of the population of fish in the Crooked River are the flows released from Bowman Dam. The timing and volume of water discharged from the dam can be incredibly destructive to the variety of species flourishing in that habitat. This is the case for the decline of the Redband trout.

Limited snowfalls in 2015 triggered low flows from Bowman Dam, in turn starving the trout of oxygen and nitrogen, killing off large numbers. The following year was one of the highest snow years ever documented in Central Oregon, releasing large quantities of water into the river. The high flows saturated the water with nitrogen, causing air pockets to build up in fish tissue. This is called gas bubble disease and it was the leading cause for the decline in 2016.

The Crooked River flowing through Smith Rock.

While the Crooked River has historically been a popular fishing destination, this decline drastically altered regional interest in the stream. In turn, the amount of business local fly shops received dwindled. People would come from all over the Pacific Northwest to be guided on the Crooked, but news of the decline deterred their plans to visit. I interviewed Dave Merrick, the retail manager of local fly shop, Fly and Field. He said media influenced out-of-town fishermens’ perspective on the Crooked’s fishing quality. He had several clients who called him, inquiring about a fishing trip in Central Oregon. He noted they were surprised when he suggested the Crooked, thinking the fishing opportunities there were long gone. But this decrease is not a one-time event. Many smaller declines on the Crooked have occurred in the past. The Crooked is even suffering through one right now. While flows last year were around 1,500 cubic feet per second, current flows are as high as 3,000 cfs, proving fatal to the fish population. This is due to an unusually high spring runoff. The decline of the Crooked River Redband trout population has affected more than just the stream's ecosystem. From environmental effects to the Bend economy, the decrease in 2016 has left a mark on Central Oregon. I write this article to bring attention to the many declines riddling the past of the Crooked River. Another decline on par with the one the Crooked has just suffered through could be severely destructive to the health of this coveted stream. -Alex Laakmann is a budding naturalist and writer who attends Seven Peaks School in Bend.

Five things to consider

deposit also expresses a buyer’s commitment level in buying the home. Let’s say, for example, a buyer puts a $500 earnest money deposit down on a $300,000 purchase, the seller could feel that the buyer has nothing to risk and walk away from the transaction at will, thus, causing the seller to lose valuable time on the market. 3. Shorten the inspection contingencies. Inspection contingencies are almost always a nerve-wracking period for a seller. When a buyer shortens the inspection contingency period, this shows the seller that the buyer is committed to moving quickly and earnestly through the process. 4. Offer to close as quickly as possible. For a seller, the time frame to close a transaction may be just as important as the purchase price. Sellers typically do not prefer long extended escrows, as the risk for something to go awry with the transaction is extended and could hinder their plans for purchasing a replacement property or moving deadlines. 5. Write a friendly offer. When a buyer includes demands that are not customary in that area or is asking for concessions that could be deemed as unreasonable to a seller, the buyer runs the risk of offending a seller and decreasing the likelihood of a seller’s desire to enter into contract, for fear of what other demands/requests will be made during the transaction. Writing a strong offer simply means that a buyer writes their very best offer up front. Like I said, you may only get one chance to make an impression on the seller. A buyer is not guaranteed that a seller will counter their offer. Is the risk of losing that perfect property to a well-written and stronger offer worth not putting the best foot forward the first time?

hen discussing real estate transactions, buyers and sellers often hear from their brokers about putting their best foot forward. All too often, this motto is thought of as applying more to sellers than buyers. In a sellers' market—which we are currently in, it’s just as important for a buyer to put their best foot forward when looking to purchase a home. A sellers' market is when the inventory is too low to meet buyer demands. In the latest Beacon Report, produced by Beacon Appraisal Group, the report states that inventory rose to just over a two-month supply for Bend in April 2019. As a reference, a neutral sale market typically has a six-month inventory supply. In a sellers' market (what Bend is experiencing now), it’s not unusual for a property that meets the latest buyer trends and desires to attract multiple offers. This is where it becomes crucial for a buyer to write a strong purchase offer and put their best foot forward. What does that mean? In a simple explanation, it means that they may only have once chance to make an impression on the seller. If a buyer is trying to purchase a home in a sellers' market, here are some tips to writing a strong purchase offer: 1. Submit a preapproval letter, or in the case of a cash purchase, provide proof of funds with the offer. This demonstrates to a seller that the buyer is serious, qualified, can afford to purchase and is committed to purchasing a property. 2. Put down a substantial earnest money deposit. A large earnest money deposit demonstrates to the seller that the buyer has the means and ability to put cash on the table toward closing costs and a down payment. The larger earnest money

SCIENCE ADVICE GODDESS Tales From The Lopside My boyfriend and I are in a long-distance relationship (for almost four years) that works very well, talking daily and seeing each other every two months. The problem is that it feels like he has much more love for me than I have for him. (He’s totally head over heels and expresses this constantly.) I absolutely do love him, and I tell him frequently. But my love intensity just does not match his. Additionally, I should mention that I’ve tried to leave him in the past. I didn’t think the relationship was serving me. He is married and technically unavailable. (He is working toward dissolving the marriage.) Also, he works hard but has no financial resources. I do want to stay in the relationship, but I’m not sure how to deal with the imbalance in expressiveness. I don’t want to be inauthentic. —Pressured You’re dating a man who not only is still married but needs to crowdfund his divorce. Many women believe it’s somehow nobler if they love a poor dude, telling themselves (and often the guy) that they don’t really care about money. But as I often point out, because women are the ones who get pregnant, female emotions evolved to make women feel bad—resentful, angry, screwed over—when they get involved with men who are (for example!) still “married and technically unavailable” and have “no financial resources.” Boyfriend: “Hey, ya a great birthday present, and you won’t even be charged for it till your next credit card statement!” And even if a woman is a staunch feminist, all “I don’t care who the earner in the relationship is,” the psychological operating system driving us right now is adapted for ancestral times and the problems that arose then. So it just keeps on keepin’ on, pushing a woman to go for men who can “provide,” even when she’s on the birth controlliest birth control (like a copper IUD — basically bioterrorism for sperm, backstopped by a Ukrainian nightclub bouncer). In other words, you are not getting the long end of the stick here, financially or commitment-wise, and evolution has programmed you to be nagged by feelbad emotions until you do something to change that. Your boyfriend, meanwhile, surely has some feelbad of his own. Because men coevolved with women, male psychology leads men to anticipate that female romantic partners who feel shorted on cash flow and/or commitment will soon

be conducting their exit interview. In light of this, your boyfriend’s expressing love in the manner of a burst water main may be a form of “mate guarding,” evolutionary psychologists’ term for attempts to fend off mate poachers and keep one’s partner in the relationship. Because we humans have an evolved motivation to reciprocate—to give back what we get in equal measure—it’s possible that the more romantically expressive your boyfriend is, the more you’re led to feel you’re shorting him on what he seems to be owed. But is the apparent emotional asymmetry here actually a problem? Many people do make the assumption that Amy Alkon romantic partners’ love should be 50-50 and that there’s something wrong with the relationship when it isn’t. However, what really matters is whether there’s enough love on each side to keep the partners together—especially in the face of any costs imposed by a partner or the relationship. Accordingly, consider whether the long-distance aspect might be staving off feelings and conflict that could come out if you two were living together. Research repeatedly finds that women tend to resent male partners who aren’t their equals or betters in job status and earnings. For example, a study by business school professor Alyson Byrne finds that a woman’s having higher job status (and the money that comes with) often leads to marital instability and divorce. She and her colleague even find that women experience “status leakage,” finding the status they’ve earned through their work diminished by virtue of their having a lower-status spouse. As for you, you say you want to stay in the relationship, presumably because you love your boyfriend. However, it’s also possible that your being in the relationship for a while—almost four years—is keeping you in the relationship. Consider what economists call the “sunk cost fallacy,” the human tendency to keep investing in a project based on the time, energy, and/or resources we’ve already “sunk” into it. Of course, the rational approach is deciding to continue based on whether the investment will pay off sufficiently in the future. Looking at your situation that way should help you make a decision. At the moment, as I see it, there’s nothing standing between the two of you riding off into the sunset together...pulling a wagon carrying his current wife, their couples therapist, a divorce mediator, and several collection agents.

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There’s a certain

sacred celebration: a blow-out extravaganza filled with reverence and revelry, singing and dancing, sensual delights and spiritual blessings. What is the occasion? After all these eons, your lost love has finally returned. And who exactly is your lost love? You! You are your own lost love! Having weaved and wobbled through countless adventures full of rich lessons, the missing part of you has finally wandered back. So give yourself a flurry of hugs and kisses. Start planning the jubilant hoopla. And exchange ardent vows, swearing that you’ll never be parted again.

problem that has in my opinion occupied too much of your attention. It’s really rather trivial in the big picture of your life, and doesn’t deserve to suck up so much of your attention. I suspect you will soon see things my way, and take measures to move on from this energy sink. Then you’ll be free to focus on a more interesting and potentially productive dilemma—a twisty riddle that truly warrants your loving attention. As you work to solve it, you will reap rewards that will be useful and enduring.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The Louvre in Paris is the world’s biggest art museum. Over 35,000 works are on display, packed into 15 acres. If you wanted to see every piece, devoting just a minute to each, you would have to spend eight hours a day there for many weeks. I bring this to your attention, Gemini, because I suspect that now would be a good time for you to treat yourself to a marathon gaze-fest of art in the Louvre—or any other museum. For that matter, it’s a favorable phase to gorge yourself on any beauty anywhere that will make your soul freer and smarter and happier. You will thrive to the degree that you absorb a profusion of grace, elegance, and loveliness.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Author Hélène Cixous articulated a poetically rigorous approach to love. I’ll tell you about it, since in my astrological opinion you’re entering a phase when you’ll be wise to upgrade and refine your definitions of love, even as you upgrade and refine your practice of love. Here’s Cixous: “I want to love a person freely, including all her secrets. I want to love in this person someone she doesn’t know. I want to love outside the law: without judgment. Without imposed preference. Does that mean outside morality? No. Only this: without fault. Without false, without true. I want to meet her between the words, beneath language.”

ical opinion, you now have a mandate to exercise your rights to free speech with acute vigor. It’s time to articulate all the important insights you’ve been waiting for the right moment to call to everyone’s attention. It’s time to unearth the buried truths and veiled agendas and ripening mysteries. It’s time to be the catalyst that helps your allies to realize what’s real and important, what’s fake and irrelevant. I’m not saying you should be rude, but I do encourage you to be as candid as is necessary to nudge people in the direction of authenticity.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn author Henry Miller wrote that his master plan was “to remain what I am and to become more and more only what I am—that is, to become more miraculous.” This is an excellent strategy for your use. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to renounce any tendency you might have to compare yourself to anyone else. You’ll attract blessings as you wean yourself from imagining that you should live up to the expectations of others or follow a path that resembles theirs. So here’s my challenge: I dare you to become more and more only what you are—that is, to become more miraculous.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): During summers in

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): London’s Brit-

the far northern land of Alaska, many days have twenty hours of sunlight. Farmers take advantage of the extra photosynthesis by growing vegetables and fruits that are bigger and sweeter than crops grown further south. During the Alaska State Fair every August, you can find prodigies like 130-pound cabbages and 65-pound cantaloupes. I suspect you’ll express a comparable fertility and productiveness during the coming weeks, Leo. You’re primed to grow and create with extra verve. So let me ask you a key question: to which part of your life do you want to dedicate that bonus power?

ish Museum holds a compendium of artifacts from the civilizations of many different eras and locations. Author Jonathan Stroud writes that it’s “home to a million antiquities, several dozen of which were legitimately come by.” Why does he say that? Because so many of the museum’s antiquities were pilfered from other cultures. In accordance with current astrological omens, I invite you to fantasize about a scenario in which the British Museum’s administrators return these treasures to their original owners. When you’re done with that imaginative exercise, move on to the next one, which is to envision scenarios in which you recover the personal treasures and goodies and powers that you have been separated from over the years.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): In my astrolog-

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s time for you to reach higher and dig deeper. So don’t be a mere tinkerer nursing a lukewarm interest in mediocre stories and trivial games. Be a strategic adventurer in the service of exalted stories and meaningful games. In fact, I feel strongly that if you’re not prepared to go all the way, you shouldn’t go at all. Either give everything you’ve got or else keep it contained for now. Can you handle one further piece of strenuous advice, my dear? I think you will thrive as long as you don’t settle for business as usual or pleasure as usual. To claim the maximum vitality that’s available, you’ll need to make exceptions to at least some of your rules.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful,” wrote author Flannery O’Connor. I think that’s an observation worth considering. But I’ve also seen numerous exceptions to her rule. I know people who have eagerly welcomed grace into their lives even though they know that its arrival will change them forever. And amazingly, many of those people have experienced the resulting change as tonic and interesting, not primarily painful. In fact, I’ve come to believe that the act of eagerly welcoming change-inducing grace makes it more likely that the changes will be tonic and interesting. Everything I’ve just said will especially apply to you in the coming weeks.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “I hate it when people tell me that I should ‘get out of my comfort zone,’” writes Piscean blogger Rosespell. “I don’t even have a comfort zone. My discomfort zone is pretty much everywhere.” I have good news for Rosespell and all of you Pisceans who might be inclined to utter similar testimony. The coming weeks will feature conditions that make it far more likely than usual that you will locate or create a real comfort zone you can rely on. For best results, cultivate a vivid expectation that such a sweet development is indeed possible.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): According to humorist Dave Barry, “The method of learning Japanese recommended by experts is to be born as a Japanese baby and raised by a Japanese family, in Japan.” As you enter an intensely educational phase of your astrological cycle, I suggest you adopt a similar strategy toward learning new skills and mastering unfamiliar knowledge and absorbing fresh information. Immerse yourself in environments that will efficiently and effectively fill you with the teachings you need. A more casual, slapdash approach just won’t enable you to take thorough advantage of your current opportunities to expand your repertoire.

Las Vegas is Opening Cannabis Consumption Lounges By Josh Jardine




as Vegas has always had a lot to offer, and now Sin City also has the welcome recent addition of access to legal recreational cannabis. But, just like Oregon, there aren’t many legal options for consumption of cannabis after it’s been acquired. Homeowners may consume in their abode, but with Vegas hosting more than 40 million tourists per year, that leaves the majority of cannabis consumers with no place to consume—streets, cars, casinos and hotel rooms are not legal spaces to light up or vape. A bill in the Nevada legislature to allow establishment cannabis lounges was defeated, but that didn’t slow the roll of those who wished to roll and puff puff pass. Per the Leafly website, an effort which has been underway for the past 18 months to convince the Las Vegas City Council to allow the smoking lounges gained approval this month. Licenses for the consumption spaces will only be issued to those who hold a dispensary license. At present, there are a dozen dispensaries in Las Vegas, with an additional 10 expected to open before the end of the year. A number of rules will be put in place to appease the powerful gaming and alcohol industries, but they are reasonable ones: • The lounges may not be based within a dispensary, but can be adjacent. • No alcohol may be served, but non-alcoholic food and beverages may be offered.

• Windows must be blacked out, and lounges must be located indoors with no access to the outdoors. • They cannot be located within 1,000 feet of an established property offering gaming. • This applies only to the dispensaries located within City limits, with the exception of the dispensary run by the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe. Thanks to a deal with the state, they are exempt from federal regulations regarding cannabis commerce, including lounges. This is Vegas, so you can expect some luxurious offerings. Leafly reports that two lounges in development will have 7,800 and 8,000 square feet of space, and offer much more than a few couches and big screens blaring ESPNs 1 through 8. One will offer “over a dozen separate rooms with private areas for playing virtual reality games and dominoes, a recording studio, a CBD product store, and even a boardroom for groups that have expressed interest in holding meetings there.” Another will offer “a makeshift concert venue, massage parlor, yoga studio, and private event center.” That may pale in comparison to what the Paiute Tribe has in store for an 11-acre parcel of land next to their dispensary, which they have stated will become a consumption lounge “when the time is right.” For now, Oregon has no plans to address the lack of spaces for compliant consumption, choosing instead to sell cannabis, then penalize those with audacity to consume what they have just paid a 20 percent tax to acquire. Way to go, Salem.
