Ah, summer in Central Oregon: Live music, a gorgeous river—plus smoke, fires, traffic… but before all that starts, let’s focus on the first parts; the fun parts! This issue, our Summer Guide endeavors to list out all the concerts already on our radar for this Summer of Music 2022. With over 50 shows at the Hayden Homes Amphitheater alone, music is definitely going to be in the air. On top of that, the region has dozens of outdoor and athletic events to get people into the competitive spirit. We list all of those in this Summer Guide, too. And if you’d rather hide out in an air-conditioned space this summer, film reviewer Jared Rasic outlines the summer blockbusters to look forward to. It’s a big issue, jam-packed with summer fun!

OPINION White Supremacy is No Longer Hiding in Plain Sight

T

WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / MAY 26, 2022 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE

his week’s disgusting display in Buffalo, New York, has us reflecting on the ugliness of racism in our own community, because this is far from just Buffalo’s problem. A number of years ago, the Source Weekly ran a series highlighting how racism was “hiding in plain sight” around Central Oregon. As much as we’d like to say that people have evolved and that recent racial justice protests have made more people aware of the harm caused by white supremacy, it seems the opposite is true. Racism in Central Oregon doesn’t hide in plain sight—it is writ large. In one instance in Madras, it’s been forced into people’s faces as they make the drive from parts west or north along Highway 97. It is there that the Ding Ho Chinese Restaurant, recently closed, has for over a week displayed a derogatory attempt at imitating a Chinese accent and message on its sign. It’s not just people of color or those from marginalized groups who should be outraged about this type of blatant racism that was not immediately taken down. To truly get to a place where people of all races, creeds and colors feel accepted and safe, those who have benefited from the status quo need to stand up for the marginalized. Right now, the racists of our region are winning. They are winning when they see the sole person of color, who is also queer, leave their elected position on the Bend City Council due in part to being targeted for their identities. They are winning when a sign engaging in racial stereotyping is allowed to stay up for more than a single hour. They are winning when people of color from other regions come here and get called the “N” word within hours of their arrival. They are winning when a Confederate flag is waved during a Redmond parade, and the City doesn’t have the political will to ban them from future parades. They are winning when a Black man is shot dead on the streets of Bend after flirting with a white man’s girl. They are winning when a Black teen ends his own life after being bullied at Summit High School. Elsewhere, they are winning when a man in Buffalo, New York, can find fellowship in using the Great Replacement Theory as justification for shooting down Black people at a grocery store. They continue to win when the theory is regurgitated on cable news. This is not a struggle that any of us asked to be in, but it’s happening. Using reason or even espousing empathy has thus far not ended this—so what do we do? What we certainly don’t do is nothing.

O WATER, WATER, WATER

COMMENDING SALLY RUSSELL FOR HER HONEST RESIGNATION I want to commend Mayor Sally Russell for her honest resignation. Sally stated simply, “I am exhausted,” which is a difficult thing to admit in our culture of hyper-productivity and overwork as a means of defining worth. The pandemic has strained the seams of what is bearable and revealed the harsh truth that, for most families in America, the social safety net is weak or non-existent in the face of hardship. Between the pandemic, political animosity, migration, homelessness, housing prices, food prices, gas prices, the inaccessibility of child care,

as well as whatever personal losses and trials this period of American history has forced us to experience alone, we are all exhausted. It’s too much. Thank you, Sally, for bravely announcing what we all feel. I hope you find rest, peace and joy again with your family, and that we all, as a society and community, find a way to better support one another in living a balanced life. It will require massive social and political upheaval across America to provide what families need for basic quality of life, and it begins with recognizing and normalizing that the burden we are currently carrying is just too much to continue to bear. — Emily Burnham

BEND NEEDS CHRIS PIPER Who doesn’t love Bend? We are the fastest growing metro area in Oregon and seventh fastest growing nationwide. And along with that growth comes many challenges like congestion, housing affordability, infrastructure, threat of wildfires, workforce supply, public safety, and homelessness to name a few. Strong leadership is obviously required to confront these challenges, but sadly lacking in our current City Council. We appear to have elected Councilors with an agenda to focus on the few, at the expense of the many, instead of what is good for ALL. Their motivation may be well-meaning but clearly misguided. Buyer’s remorse anyone? Our current City Council has drifted so far left that even self-proclaimed moderate, (former) Mayor Sally Russell, said she has gone from being perceived as most liberal to now getting labeled as most Conservative. The leadership Bend needs to meet its challenges is not left or right, it’s in the middle and Chris Piper is the

best mayoral candidate for the job. He is a Moderate whose common sense approach to city government will bridge gaps, find middle ground, and bring balance to the City Council. He’s got the experience and importantly he will listen to all of us, and give us direct, honest communication. If we want different outcomes than those we’ve experienced lately, we need new leadership, and Chris Piper will make a difference for the entire community. —Rick Seibert

SAVE BUMBLEBEES, DO NOT USE ROUNDUP READY TO USE May 20 was World Bee Day. Many of us are planting more and more pollinator plants to help them. Our city governments have programs to not use bee-killing pesticides. Many of us are aware of the toxic effects of bee-killing insecticides called neonictinoids and won’t use on our property. New research sheds light on another product that has unintended result of killing bumblebees. Most think RoundUp is just an herbicide that doesn’t affect bees or other insects. New research shows differently. RoundUp Ready to Use product has inert ingredients that are responsible for this product killing bumblebees. It is not the glycophosphate itself, but the additional ingredients that cause death. Applications show a shocking 94% mortality rate, and even a 78% mortality rate if used in a 1:3

dilution. Also Roundup Speed Ultra (no glycophosphates) was found to kill 96% of exposed pollinators. The scientists found that surfectants in the product to be matting the body hairs of bees and thus smothering them. Inerts are not required by EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] to undergo the same level of scrutiny for harm they may cause and the EPA has refused to disclose these ingredients to the public on the label of the pesticide products, despite repeated attempts by many advocacy organizations. Please do not use this product. Find alternative products to use for weed control including many organic weed control products. Help save our bees and all the work you are doing to improve pollinator gardens. —Barbara Rumer

I am writing to all those people who don’t understand why a high desert could be low on water. I grew up here and most of the town hauled their own water. Most people on the outskirts did not have wells. City water was only in the city which was a small area. This has gotten out of control; houses yards and golf courses are everywhere. These new people are going to run our wells dry. No joke! Think of others and the BLM that has been destroyed to build thousands of homes displacing wildlife and locals. Farmers are begging for their water while the new people in this town are whining about how their yard may look if their neighbors decided not to water their lawn during a severe drought. Maybe we need to remind people all though the snow from the mountains runs to a beautiful river, the river can still only support so many people. Oh and stop for deer—you can’t be in that big of a hurry and if you are you need to slow down and take in the true beauty of this little desert town. —Aspen Lowe

The Incomplete Council

Bend City Council has 30 days to replace two outgoing councilors By Jack Harvel Jack Harvel

Bend Mayor Sally Russell, left, and Bend City Councilor Rita Schenkelberg, right, made their last appearances as elected officials at Bend City Council’s regular meeting on May 18.

Schenkelberg said. “I hope that they have a focus in diversity and understanding how important representation is. I hope that they feel energized and wanting to continue to make changes at the city government level.” City Councilors Megan Perkins, Melanie Kebler and the new Mayor Pro Tem Anthony Broadman will take the first steps of reviewing applicants and making recommendations. “We haven’t discussed any specific priorities and will be most focused on somebody who we believe can come up to speed quickly and do the job effectively,” Goodman-Campbell said. “I think Rita’s perspective as a renter was incredibly valuable on Council, and it is something that we’ll be keeping in mind as we go through this process.” The City Council last appointed a member of City Council in June of 2019, when it chose Chris Piper to

replace the seat Russell vacated when she assumed the role of Bend’s mayor. The decision drew controversy for its lack of clarity in process, the partisan framing of balancing the City Council, an officially non-partisan position and choosing Piper over a member of an unrepresented group. The appointment happened at the start of Goodman-Campbell’s tenure, and she said the City Council will seek to avoid the same criticisms this time around by having a concrete process drawn out in the council rules. “I think it is helpful when you’re in this time of change and uncertainty to have a process to walk through,” she said. “Having observed how that process went in 2019, two of us from the inside and three from the outside, we’re all really committed to having that dialogue be public.”

Election Results, So Far

Preliminary results from the May primaries are out, though official results will have to wait By Jack Harvel It’s Oregon’s first election where ballots can be sent as late as Election Day, delaying results. Official results won’t be released when this article goes to print, but here’s what we’ve seen so far in unofficial results. Deschutes County Commissioner: Incumbent Tony DeBone leads challenger Scott Stuart 75-25% in the Republican primary. Democrat Oliver Tatom, who ran unopposed, will face DeBone in the November election. Both candidates for Deschutes County Commissioners Position 3, incumbent Patti Adair on the Republican side, and Morgan Schmidt on the Democratic side, ran unopposed.

7 VOLUME 26 ISSUE 21 / MAY 26, 2022 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

The Bend City Council shrunk at its regular meeting on May 18, with both Mayor Sally Russell and Councilor Rita Schenkelberg resigning near the end of the meeting. Russell’s term expires at the end of December and Schenkelberg’s runs until the end of 2023. Russell cited exhaustion after the past four years of pandemic, social unrest and environmental disasters. Schenkelberg (they/them) said balancing a full-time job while working as a City Councilor and harassment over their race and nonbinary gender identity became untenable. “They’re both very human-focused, emotionally involved positions,” Schenkelberg told the Source just before their resignation. “The other piece is the harassment around all of my identities was wearing me down and being it was very unsustainable for me.” City Councilors heaped praise on Schenkelberg for bringing a distinct voice to the City Council and Russell for a decade of service. Several fought tears while apologizing to Schenkelberg for the harassment they’ve been subject to since starting their term. “We had a conversation about how we could support you, and I feel like we have just failed you and I am so sorry for failing you,” Bend City Councilor Megan Perkins said after Schenkelberg officially resigned. City Councilor and Mayor Pro Tem Gena Goodman-Campbell replaced Russell as mayor after fellow City Councilors nominated her. Goodman-Campbell said during her appointment that City Council meetings will look different with a working mom leading them. “It always will look different every time we have a different mayor at the helm, because everybody is different in their styles,” Goodman-Campbell told the Source. “It’s really healthy for an elected body to have different perspectives and different viewpoints with different life experiences in our leaders.” The City Council has 30 days to replace the two vacated seats, and if it fails to do so they will be up for election in November. Schenkelberg said they hope their replacement understands the challenges of public life and can represent voices that may not be present on the current City Council. “I hope that they fully understand the position and feel like that’s something sustainable for them,”

Oregon’s Fifth Congressional District: Jamie McLeod-Skinner is leading incumbent Kurt Schrader with 60% of the vote in the Democratic Primary— though ballot-counting delays in Clackamas County are making this one a protracted nail-biter. Lori ChavezDeRemer is ahead in the five-person Republican primary with 45% of the vote. Oregon Governor: Former House Speaker Tina Kotek is the clear leader in the Democratic Primary for governor with 57% of the vote. Christine Drazan on the Republican ticket leads with 23% of the vote. U.S. Senate: Incumbent Ron Wyden clinched the

Democratic nomination for Oregon with 90% of the vote. Jo Rae Perkins holds a slight lead in the seven-person Republican Primary for the with 33%, compared to her nearest challenger, Darin Harbick, who’s won 31% of the vote. The City of Redmond appears to have approved a bond measure to construct a new police department building 56%-44%. A bond that would fund a Sunriver public safety building is ahead 68%-32%. Crook County narrowly rejected a bond that would fund school facility upgrades 51%-49%.

St. Charles Staff Sacked

After several difficult years dealing with COVID, Bend’s largest employer is laying off nearly 200 staff members

9

Jack Harvel

St. Charles is cutting nearly 200 people from its roughly 4,500 workforce as labor costs rise and caregivers perform fewer elective surgeries.

C

entral Oregon’s largest employer, St. Charles Health System, announced this month it would be laying off 105 people and eliminating 76 positions that are currently vacant. The health system is Central Oregon’s largest employer, retaining over approximately 4,500 employees across the region. St. Charles said most positions it’s eliminating are non-clinical positions in areas including finance, IT and human resources. But even while it’s laying off nearly 200 people, it’s also still aggressively recruiting for positions. “It’s a delicate balance, because at the same time, we

still have a number of openings that we need and will still continue to recruit for,” said Rebecca Berry, vice president of human resources at St. Charles Health System, during a press conference. “Those openings are largely in patient-facing areas that are critical to making sure that we have the people in the right roles to care for our patients and for our community,” St. Charles says the layoffs won’t cause any services to close, and that the layoffs will recoup losses stemming from the last two years of the pandemic. St. Charles CFO Matt Swafford said the hospital system lost $21.8 million this year, or a negative 6.7% operating

margin. The biggest drain on the system’s finances is in increased staffing costs and diminished surgery volume. Contract labor, like travelling nurses, have been brought in to accommodate for COVID surges and represents a much higher share of labor costs than before the pandemic. A March report from Kaufman Hall, a financial advisory firm, found labor expenses rose 37% on a per-patient basis between 2019 and March 2022 in a sample of 900 hospitals. In that time contract labor rose from 2% to 11% of labor expenses and regularly employed nurse wages increased by 11%. “Pre-pandemic, we had really worked hard to lower and really minimize the use of contractors and have really focused and were able to fill positions. So, we’re definitely higher right now—that number has been coming down,” Berry said. “We’re going to continue our focus on our recruitment efforts to bring and fill those positions and minimize the use of travelers going forward.” St. Charles officials say layoffs are a last resort, and come after substantial cost-cutting efforts failed to get the system out of the red. It has pulled about $65 million out of its long-term reserve fund since fall of 2021, about 10% of its total value, increased its line of credit and financed $75 million in bonds that will be due in 2032. Even with the staffing cuts and cost-saving initiatives, the hospital system will still need to find a path for long-term viability. “With these initiatives, including the layoffs, we still estimate that we will be recording a significant loss from operations for 2022. And so, the importance of these initiatives and the impact of these layoffs will require us to continue to dig a little bit deeper so that we can make sure that we are sustainable for the long term,” Swafford said.

Medical Helicopter Crashes in Christmas Valley The Bend-based Airlink helicopter crashed on its way to pick up a patient, seriously injuring at least two people on board By Jack Harvel

A

n AirLink medical helicopter crashed while landing at the Christmas Valley Airport on its way to pick up a patient last week. The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash, which occurred in windy conditions around 5:24 pm on May 18, according to NTSB public affairs officer Peter Knudson. Knudson said the crash seriously injured two of the four people on board, which included two pilots and two medical personnel. AirLink’s parent firm, Global Medical Response, confirmed all four crew members were transported to local hospitals for evaluation. “They landed hard, and the helicopter rolled. The helicopter had substantial damage; two of the people were injured, seriously injured,” Knudson said. “[The other two] might have minor injuries, but they weren’t considered serious.” Airlink maintains another helicopter and two fixed-wing aircraft in the region. The cause of the crash is yet to be determined by the NTSB, but Knudson said a report should be released within one to two weeks.

The Airbus AS350 helicopter crashed after landing “hard,” according to a National Transportation Safety Board spokesperson.

Noticias en Español El municipio de la ciudad de Bend tiene 30 días para reemplazar dos concejales salientes By / Por Jack Harvel Translated by/Traducido por Jéssica Sánchez-Millar “Platicamos sobre cómo podríamos apoyarte y siento que te fallamos, lamento mucho haberte fallado,” dijo la concejala de la ciudad de Bend Megan Perkins, después de que Schenkelberg presentó su renuncia oficial. La concejala municipal y alcaldesa por el momento, Gene Goodman-Campbell reemplazó a Russell como alcaldesa después que sus colegas concejales la nominaron. Goodman-Campbell dijo durante su nombramiento que las reuniones del concejo municipal serán diferentes con una madre con un trabajo encargándose de las reuniones. “Siempre será diferente cada vez que tengamos un alcalde diferente al mando porque todos tienen estilos diferentes,” le comento Goodman-Campbell a the Source. “Es muy bueno para alguien electo tener diferentes perspectivas y diferentes puntos de vista junto con diferentes experiencias de vida en nuestros líderes.” El concejo municipal tiene 30 días para reemplazar las dos plazas vacantes y si no lo logra se presentarán a elección en noviembre. Schenkelberg dijo que esperan que su reemplazo entienda los retos de la vida pública y que pueda representar las voces que no pueden estar presentes en el concejo municipal actual.

By / Por Jack Harvel Translated by/Traducido por Jéssica Sánchez-Millar El empleador más grande del centro de Oregon, St. Charles Health System, anunció este mes que estará dando de baja a 105 personas y que eliminaría 76 puestos actualmente vacantes. El sistema de salud es el empleador más grande del Centro de Oregon, quedando con aproximadamente 4,500 empleados a lo largo de la región. St. Charles dice que la mayoría de las bajas son puestos no clínicos en las áreas de finanzas, tecnología informática y recursos humanos. Pero a pesar que está dando de baja a casi 200 empleados, también sigue con fuerza reclutando personal. St. Charles dijo que las bajas no causarán el cierre de ningún servicio y que las bajas recuperaran las pérdidas derivadas de los dos últimos años de la pandemia. El director financiero de St. Charles, Matt Swafford dijo que el sistema hospitalario perdió $21.8 millones este año o un margen operativo negativo del 6.7% del margen operativo. El mayor consumo de las finanzas se encuentra en el incremento de los costos de personal y la disminución del volumen de cirugías. Se ha contratado mano de obra laboral, como enfermeros(as) viajantes, para adaptarse a los aumentos repentinos de la COVID y representa una proporción mucho mayor de los costos laborales que antes de la pandemia. Un reporte de marzo de Kaufman Hall, una firma de asesoría financiera, encontró que los gastos laborales aumentaron 37% por ciento entre 2019 y marzo de 2022 en una muestra de 900 hospitales. Durante ese tiempo, la contratación laboral aumentó del 2% al 11% de los gastos laborales y los salarios de los enfermeros(as) contratadas aumentó en un 11%.

11 VOLUME 26 ISSUE 21 / MAY 26, 2022 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

El concejo municipal de la ciudad de Bend redujo su personal durante la junta del 18 de mayo, tanto la alcaldesa Sally Russell como la concejala Rita Schenkealberg renunciaron a su puesto al casi terminar la reunión. La vigencia del puesto de Russel se vence a finales de diciembre y la de Schenkelberg continua hasta finales de 2023. Russell citó el agotamiento después de los últimos cuatro años de pandemia, el descontento social y los desastres ambientales. Schenkelberg (ellos/ellas/los/las) dijo que el nivelar un trabajo de tiempo completo al trabajar como concejal de la ciudad y el acoso por su raza y su identidad de género no binaria llegó a ser insostenible. “Ambos puestos están muy enfocados en el ser humano, en los que uno se involucra sentimentalmente,” Schenkelberg le comentó a the Source un poco antes de su renuncia. “El otro punto es el acoso en relación a todas mis identidades lo cual me estaba desgastando y me era muy instolerable.” Los concejales de la ciudad elogiaron a Schenkelberg por traer un punto de vista diferente al municipio de Bend y a Russell por una década de servicio. Muchos lucharon en contener las lágrimas mientras se disculpaban por el acoso al cual han sido expuestos desde que comenzaron su mandato.

Después de varios años difíciles lidiando con la COVID, el empleador más grande de Bend está dando de baja a casi 200 empleados

A cliché itinerary—but clichés have to come from somewhere…. By Nicole Vulcan

Nicole Vulcan

Tasting Room & Cocktail Lounge Bend’s daytime cocktail destination

Flights | Classic Cocktails | Small Plates | Dog-Friendly Patio Monday - Thursday: 12-6pm Friday: 12-8pm Saturday - Sunday: 12-6pm 541.382.0002 | OREGONSPIRITDISTILLERS.COM 740 NE 1ST STREET | BEND, OREGON

If a summer day involves SUPs, it might as well include pups on SUPs.

W

hen one lives in the shadows of mountains, adjacent to a gorgeous, glittering river, what does one do? Enjoy the mountains and the river, of course. While it might seem cliché to the typical resident of Central Oregon to say that a perfect summer day involves biking in said mountains and boating on said river, that’s exactly the type of perfect summer day I want to sign up for. On my ideal summer day, I set out via bike from my home in Bend’s Orchard District, a bike trailer behind me stuffed with an inflatable SUP and a few canned cocktails stuck in wherever they’ll fit. I pick up an iced coffee from BackPorch on the east side and then head west and up, up, up—possibly regretting bringing the trailer and SUP—along some of the handy protected bike lanes of the west side, to meet a gravel road that offers access to the Deschutes and its paddle trails and quiet inlets off the main channel. From here, pumping up the SUP is ideally the hardest thing I have yet to do. I’ll float and paddle a while, crack that canned thing I brought, and meander back home once I’ve dried off on shore. Good thing the way back home is downhill.

’m up for a summer adventure as much as any other average Bend dude, but deep down inside I know myself. I’m pretty lazy. It takes some effort for me to get stoked and geared up for those summer outings that people around here seem to bust out any given morning. Alas, my ideal summer day doesn’t involve any serious ass-kicking mountain climb followed by a kayak excursion for dinner. For my ideal summer day I’m loading up the hammock, Frisbee and a few beers to go loaf around town. I’ll start by cruising on my bike and meeting up with some buddies at First Street Rapids. Maybe someone has an inner tube to get a little adrenaline rush in for the day shooting the rapids, but if not, no biggie, I’m trying just to chill anyways. I pick a rock to lizard out on for a bit, soaking up the sun, and dive in when the heat starts to make me sweat. This is repeated until the tummy starts to rumble and the thirst for a cold beverage becomes unbearable. Next stop would probably be The Podski. Three-buck draft Rainiers and tasty food carts on a hot summer day can’t be beat. “Another round?” Sure, why not? Cruising down to Miller’s Landing Park is a necessity for me during the summer. Toss the Frisbee, maybe skate around the neighborhood for a bit, or if I did a good job at planning, get a park baseball game going for the afternoon with the ‘ol wiffleball bat and tennis ball. Any of these activities would be a perfect way to waste the day. As night time approaches the feeling of concert energy hits the air. To end the day I’d jam out at a show and hit the refreshing nighttime bike ride home.

In case Summer Stoke turns to Summer Smoke, reporter Jack Harvel hones his reaction time while his thumbs pump plastic.

T

he sun is out, the birds are chirping, people around Bend are getting ready to go biking, paddle boarding, hiking, kayaking. That’s why so many of us moved to Bend, right? Not me. I got a job here — this job. And this job can be exhausting sometimes, and on my day off, even in the beautiful Central Oregon summer, I’m going to be at home doing as little as possible. When I’d just moved to the area people would ask me what brought me to Bend. Surely it was because I love kayaking or mountain biking so much that I’d spend thousands of dollars moving here. To be honest the idea of moving 1,500 miles from home to be closer to a couple hobbies was and continues to be baffling to me. How much money and free time do some of you people have? So, on my day off you may find me hiking or floating or doing something outside if my girlfriend is insistent enough, but my ideal day off doesn’t quite mesh with the hyper-outdoorsy compulsion that a lot of Bend transplants seem to feel. After all, I’m behind on “Better Call Saul,” I’ve still got a few bosses to beat in Elden Ring and as much as I love fresh air, it isn’t as refreshing with a side of forest fire smoke. I have a feeling I’m not alone here, and that a silent majority of people in Bend aren’t spending their precious time off planning their next hiking/climbing/camping/rafting/cycling/fishing excursion. My perfect summer day is dedicated to them: the gamers, the shut-ins, the nerds and the agoraphobes—the people who see and appreciate the snow-capped mountains from town but don’t feel the need to climb them. You may feel alone, but I’m right there with you. Figuratively, of course, because I’ll probably be at home.

A few months since releasing his last piece of music, Spencer Brown is looking ahead to a big 2022

31

By Isaac Biehl Brenna Danae

“This one is total pop, but I am really proud of how it came together and what’s coming,” Spencer Brown says of his upcoming single. With the artist name Kenzi, a play on Brown’s middle name, the singer/musician/producer has been serving up electronic-based R&B and pop jams that are soulful and lo-fi for a few years now. However, it has been a little while since Brown has released some new music—his last song, “Nightfall,” was released in October of 2021. His next song, “Summer Nights,” will be out on May 27 and it seems to be dropping at just the right time for the Central Oregon summer ahead. “Artists are expected to crank out music constantly these days. Part of me aligns well with that pressure; or at least desires to be that disciplined and talented. I made a bunch of songs during that time and noticed something was missing. I had to go find my voice and what I was here to say through music again. Most importantly, I had to learn to remove the pressures and walls that come up when creating. Or, especially, when not creating. It’s tragic when worrying prevents you from being who you already are,” Brown tells the Source Weekly. “I took a trip back home that reminded me music is part of my identity. Music is what I do and I should have that confidence when creating and know the rest will always come if I put in the time. ‘Summer Nights’ is part of my new approach to music and life, so I’m wildly excited for releasing it.” With fluttery keys, steady snare, and the calmly smooth vocals of Brown, “Summer Nights” is a track that keeps you feeling laid-back and cool. Brown paints the picture of a long and fun summer’s day beginning to wind down; but those are the days and magical nights we never really want to end. “Summer nights suspended in a sunbeam / I could travel ‘round the world if you’re with me / lean your arm out the window if you feel free / dream catchin’ the breeze with it in reach,” he sings. “Truthfully, I was captivated by a Carl Sagan quote

Shot out in some cave on China Hat Road, sometimes the timing of light works out just right like it did for this photo shoot.

and wanted to sneak my appreciation for his words into a vibey pop song. Someone will hate me for my audacity,” Brown says. “‘Summer nights suspended in a sunbeam’ felt like a moment many of us chase, so that’s where the song began. While Sagan was talking about all of Earth and humanity, the song became about being suspended in a remarkable moment. I believe his quote was meant to inspire our awe in those types of moments, so hopefully this song can be a soundtrack for some.” After this release Brown is geared up and ready for more. He says he’s working on an album that will combine a lot of elements of himself that this new creative feeling is bringing. Brown is also working on another musical project called Bathhouse. “I’m releasing an album with Jacob Callaghan for a

band we’re calling “Bathhouse”—Jacob is well known in the ski film world, but we started creating music together and haven’t separated since. A couple of our songs have already been in ski films, which is a dream come true for me. He’s a phenomenal producer—I mean truly phenomenal. I’m finishing the mixing now, and you aren’t going to believe the incredible production this album has thanks to him. We’ve played a couple of secret shows in town—some cool kids out there may have attended. Now we’re finally releasing the music, so lookout for Bathhouse this summer,” adds Brown. Look for “Summer Nights” on streaming platforms this Friday and keep an eye out for everything else Kenzi has planned for release this year, along with a debut album from Bathhouse.

ZZ Top is set to debut a new album, just after it kicks off the season at the amphitheater By Alan Sculley 35 Courtesy ZZ Top

Z Top’s “Raw” is as close to being an accidental album as it gets. The album, which is set for release on July 22, is drawn from a session at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas, in which singer/guitarist Billy Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard played versions of such familiar songs as “La Grange,” “Tush,” “I’m Bad, I’m Nationwide,” “Gimme All Your Lovin’” and “Legs” in the most live, spontaneous and basic setting possible. The performances were filmed for use in the recent ZZ Top documentary celebrating the band’s 50-year history with its classic lineup, “That Little Ol’ Band from Texas.” When the trio unplugged and left Gruene Hall that day, they thought it was mission accomplished. The footage was shot and recorded, end of story. “The tunes on that occasion unfolded quite in the moment,” Gibbons said, recalling the session in an email interview. “Our director, Sam (Dunn), wanted a sequence where we played in the present day as a balance to the film’s historical narrative. We got in there and did what we did and later, much later, realized we had an album.” The performances captured something that was worth hearing in its entirety – the unmistakable Texas blues-rock boogie of ZZ Top in its most authentic state. And the “Raw” album became a reality. The album figures to take on some significance as one of the last live documents of ZZ Top with Hill, who passed away last July. A hip injury had prevented Hill from joining Gibbons and Beard for last summer’s tour, and long-time guitar tech Elwood Francis had stepped in on bass. When Hill died, the band barely took time off before resuming the tour, knowing that’s what Hill would have wanted. Nevertheless, Hill’s death came as a shock. “It was quite sudden and we remained under the assumption he’d rally, recover and rejoin us,” Gibbons said. “There was no anticipation mental or otherwise. We just had to deal with the reality of departure and the quick turnaround helped reinforce “the show must go on” ethos. Our crew, our friends, fans and followers have been a huge source of comfort.” Now ZZ Top, with Francis considered a long-term third member, are back on tour this summer promoting the “Raw” album with what promises to be a show that touches on all 50-plus years of the band’s history. “We know we’ll go as far back as possible… perhaps ‘Brown Sugar’ or ‘Just Got Back From Baby’s’ from the cleverly titled ‘ZZ Top’s First Album’ or even Willie Brown’s ‘Future Blues’ that predates us by 40-plus

Following the death last summer of original bassist Dusty Hill, ZZ Top has not missed a beat, adding longtime guitar tech Elwood Francis.

years,” Gibbons said. “Of course, (we’ll include) a few of the ones well known like, “La Grange” and “Legs.” What’s certain is the famed adage of ‘something old, something borrowed and most definitely something blue’ (will apply).” ZZ Top’s longevity is notable enough, but the fact that the classic lineup remained intact for 50-plus years makes it a rare example of stability and sustained creativity and quality in what is often a volatile reality of being a rock band. The ZZ Top story is told quite colorfully in “That Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” during which Gibbons, Hill and Beard take viewers on a trip through ZZ Top’s 50-year history. The film hits a lot of highlights, including how the trio came together, how the group got its distinctive high-powered sound and its initial commercial breakthrough. From there, the film visits a late ‘70s period that included a hiatus and Beard’s battle with addictions and moves onto the 1980s, when ZZ Top incorporated synthesizers and sequencers into their sound and hit a commercial grand slam with the 1983 album, “Eliminator,” before reaching into the present day. ZZ Top made its first big impact with the 1973 album “Tres Hombres” and its single, “La Grange.” Subsequent early hits like “Tush,” “Tube Steak Boogie” and “Cheap Sunglasses” helped the band notch a string of

five gold or platinum albums during the 1970s and early 1980s. Then a convergence of factors—the arrival of sequencers and other recording tools, the debut of MTV (which aired the groundbreaking videos for the hit songs “Legs,” “Gimme All Your Lovin’” and “Sharp Dressed Man”) and some inspired songwriting – made ZZ Top mega-platinum superstars (with Gibbons and Hill debuting their newly grown outsized beards). But since reaching their commercial peak with “Eliminator” and the sonically similar “Afterburner” (1985) and “Recycler” (1990), ZZ Top has returned to more of a stripped back bluesy guitar sound on their most recent albums—“La Futura” (2012), “Mescalero” (2003)” and “XXX” (1999). Sales of those albums have fallen off, but ZZ Top remains a touring powerhouse. With Francis on board, Gibbons considers ZZ Top a band that still has plenty to say musically. He’s hinted that an album of new material could happen. “Elwood is certainly in with us for the long haul,” Gibbons said. “It’s still ZZ Top, not ZZ Top 2 or ZZ Top with an asterisk. The genuine article abides!” ZZ Top

Juneteenth is Coming

The Father’s Group plans a two-day event in Bend and a celebration in Prineville in honor of Black liberation By Nicole Vulcan

49 Kenny Adams

VOLUME 26 ISSUE 21 / MAY 26, 2022 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

A scene from the 2021 Juneteenth Celebration in Ponderosa Park in Bend.

D

rake Park is home to many a Bend cultural tradition—and this year, Bend’s iconic riverfront park will also be the site of a two-day Juneteenth celebration, hosted by the Black-led organization, The Father’s Group. The second annual Juneteenth Celebration in Bend takes place Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19, and includes music, dancing, food carts, kids’ activities and a number of educational and historical exhibits. Juneteenth, an amalgam of “June” and “19,” marks the day in 1865 when people in the state of Texas got word that over two years after the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863, “more than 250,000 enslaved Black people in the state were free by executive decree. This day came to be known as ‘Juneteenth,’ by the newly freed people in Texas,” describes the website of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. “Juneteenth marks our country’s second independence day. Although it has long been celebrated in the African American community, this monumental event remains largely unknown to most Americans,” the museum details. “We had our fundraiser that just happened this past Saturday night that was absolutely amazing—and if that’s any indicator of what the festival is going to be like—the atmosphere—it’s going to be that true jubilation-type

celebration,” said Kenny Adams, executive director of The Father’s Group. “It’s just a lot of fun. There’s going to be a lot of education at this event. Both Saturday and Sunday we have educational components that are not only going to be at the education booth but throughout the entire event. We have entertainment that we’re flying in from all over the country—Florida, Texas, California; some Oregon artists are going to be performing as well.”

expanding its offerings and presence since its founding in 2018. “The whole mission of The Father’s Group is outreach to families and students,” said Adams, who took on the role of executive director in January. “We’ve been growing by leaps and bounds. We have so many different initiatives and programs that we are currently working on that we bring to the community—that the community has really rallied behind.”

On top of having local food carts, the group has also planned its own menu, in partnership with Spork, with a Carnival-type motif in keeping with the festival’s theme of “Defining Our Liberation.” That menu includes fried catfish, spicy mac ‘n cheese, Cajun fries and seafood gumbo, to name just a sampling. Created as a group aimed at helping Black fathers support their children, The Father’s Group has been steadily

Initiatives include its Deshuan Adderley Memorial Scholarship fund, created in honor of the Black student who died by suicide after being bullied at Summit High. The Father’s Group also hosts a regular film series in partnership with BendFilm, with Q&A discussions following, as well as its new “Bridge” program aimed at working with individuals in the parole and probation system to help reduce recidivism

among people formerly incarcerated. For Adams, a father of four, all these programs center around a culture of caring. “We’re all fathers. So we’re coming at it from the lens of, we just want to take care of these kids. From a father’s standpoint, it doesn’t matter if you’re dealing with someone even five years younger than you. If they’re coming to you for advice, you kick into father mode real quick.” That focus extends to the wider community, too. “Whether it’s dealing with the community, or dealing with vendors, we just want people to have a good time, to benefit, and [to know] that they’re taken care of.” On top of Bend’s two-day event, another celebration is also planned for Prineville on June 14 at The Corral food cart lot. That event, which also includes music and food, happens from 4 to 7 pm.

Gems of the Delicious Kind CHOW Hidden For our Summer Guide, Jared heads to some of the off-the-beaten-path spots

51

By Jared Rasic

Donuts, empanadas and Bahn Mi, Oh, My!

As the frigid high desert nights fade and Bend finally lives up to the reputation of having perfect weather for weeks on end, the amount of time tourists and locals alike will spend at the ever-increasing number of food carts and food cart pods will grow. I’m not complaining, as I never want the booming food cart bubble in Bend to burst. Most of the truly exciting and innovative dishes in Bend are coming out of the most unassuming places. The constant evolution and forward motion of the city is unsubtly and ironically replicated in the inhabitants also, as we are always on the prowl for the newer, sexier, more modern next thing. Over the last few years, so many local classics have gone away for good—not for lack of quality, but because there was always something newer and more exciting to try. In a way, the number of culinary choices in Bend is comparable to the amount of content being put out on all the streaming services: so many choices; how does one wade through the mediocre and terrible to find the gems? I found so many gems—some I’d never heard of and some I’d taken for granted. Now I am full and content, once again amazed at the sheer breadth of choices. Now, I know Bellatazza isn’t a food cart, but they had a hidden gem that I found absolutely astounding, so I think it counts. The empanadas that they are so casually slinging are legit incredible, with Stewart Fritchman and team pushing the South American staple into new and bold fusion territories. I tried four different empanadas and each was as different as the next. The jalapeño and cream cheese had some serious heat and felt like the next logical step of the Popper; the New Mexican Chicken was comforting and reminded me of my grandmother’s soup when

I was sick; the Ham and Cheese tasted like the best hot pocket I’ve ever had; and the Sweet Chili Carnitas took two completely different flavor profiles and created a Frankensteinian masterpiece. The smokey profile of the carnitas and the sweet Thai spice of the chili combine with such complexity that the flavors blend beautifully while managing to stay mouthwateringly distinct. These empanadas deserve to be a downtown snack staple. For dessert, the trek over to the Bend Factory Outlet stores is the right choice, as Crave Mini Donuts managed to satisfy every single sweet tooth craving that I had without destroying me for the rest of the day and forcing me into a 4+ hour hibernation/food coma. What makes Crave so amazing (aside from the quality of the donuts), is that when you get a box of them, they’re still warm and literally melt in your mouth after the first bite. The raspberry cheesecake is perfectly balanced, the Boston cream is actually flawless and the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup was everything I wanted from a donut/candy bar mashup. Even my least favorite donut flavor ever, Funfetti, wasn’t sickly sweet at all, instead tasting like genuine thought and love went into crafting a flavor that was at once a throwback while also being post-modern in its profile. I had a dozen. Just me. Don’t look at me. For the deceptively simple delicacies, Bend Burgz N Dogz at The Lot has taken the age-old concept of a hot dog and hamburger cart and executed it without pretention, delivering what might have been the best hot dog I’ve had in years. The Reuben Dog made me so happy when I bit into the all-beef dog and it shot wonderfully melted Swiss cheese and sauerkraut into my mouth like children going down a waterslide. Poor children. Also, the Boss Burger hits the heat so perfectly

with the jalapeño and pepperjack flavor combo that I was in a meaty/cheesy heaven for hours afterward. For something a little more eclectic, Dinky Dau (tucked under the stairs on Irving in Downtown) nails casual Vietnamese food with precision and flair. From the tender and smoky Lemongrass Pork to the fantastic avocado & cucumber salad that completely avoids being a vinegar trap and then back to the spicy and complicated Dinky Kim Chi with shrimp, everything on the menu was an absolute treat. Find this place and eat there immediately. So many dishes from so many carts deserve to be obscenely popular in the Bend food scene. The birria from Alebrije (behind Bunk and Brew) is to die for. The Beyond Beefy 5 Layer Burrito from Toasty at The Podski will make you forget that beef or Taco Bell ever existed. The insanely great artichoke toasted from A Broken Angel at Spoken Moto will change what you dream about. Make the trek to Kobold Brewing in Redmond to try Feast Food Co. and fall in love with the Pork Belly Salad Wrap. Head to the Midtown Yacht Club and experience the best shawarma in Central Oregon at Shim Shon. How about fajitas? OF COURSE THERE’S FAJITAS!!! The tenderest damn steak fajitas I’ve had in a long time await you at Queso in Your Face-O at Silver Moon. And don’t even get me started on Kona Ice of Bend and the Tiger’s Blood Shaved Ice that tastes like the memory of going to the swimming pool when you’re 10. I haven’t even skimmed the surface of all the amazing hidden gems of Bend, let alone all of Central Oregon. There’s just not enough time or room. Plus, some things are just for those of us who know, ya know?

The Bob’s Burgers movie

THE BAD GUYS: Sam Rockwell as an anti-hero wolf who, along with his team of thieves, starts pretending to be a good guy in order to eventually get away with bad guy stuff. With a voice cast featuring Marc Maron, Zazie Beetz, Craig Robinson, Richard Ayoade, Awkwafina and more, this is the most irrationally excited I’ve been for an animated film in a long time. Regal Old Mill THE BOB’S BURGERS MOVIE: I don’t know if we

can really call “Bob’s Burgers” underrated anymore since it has been on over 10 seasons, but can we truly appreciate how wonderful this cartoon has consistently been over the years? With their first theatrical adventure, Loren Bouchard and company have made a musical murder mystery and I am absolutely there for it. Regal Old Mill

DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS: Sam Raimi returns to the superhero genre in

what is almost as good as the other big multiverse movie this year, “Everything Everywhere All At Once.” Easily the, ahem, strangest Marvel movie so far. My nerd glee is bursting. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House, Odem Theater Pub

DOWNTON ABBEY: A NEW ERA: It’s time to check in again with America’s second favorite group of British aristocrats as they allow a Hollywood crew to film a movie at their beloved Downton. I hope they keep making these movies forever because Maggie Smith is a treasure. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House, Odem Theater Pub UKE: Jim Broadbent plus Helen Mirren should equal all butts in seats and this quirky true-life tale deserves all the butts. Charming across the board. Tin Pan Theater EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE:

Mark your calendars for summer fun at the library from June 1 – August 31. Check out the website for more information:

deschuteslibrary.org/calendar/summer/

Martial arts, sci-fi and mind-f*ck combine for this jaw-dropping showcase of the brilliant Michelle Yeoh and the unsung comedic chops of Jamie Lee Curtis. From the Daniels, this is a breathtaking work of imagination that uses cinematic techniques we haven’t seen since the heyday of Spike Jonze and Michele Gondry. Regal Old Mill, Tin Pan Theater

FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE SECRETS OF DUMBLEDORE: I’m not sure if anyone is still invested in this

franchise, but Jude Law has been giving a pretty wonderful performance as Dumbledore, so I’m definitely along for the ride. There are a lot of cool thematic ideas happening in this series, so here’s hoping this continues the trend. It’s also just nice to be back in the Wizarding World. Regal Old Mill

FIRESTARTER: The last five years has been another renaissance in terms of Stephen King adaptations. Director Keith Thomas is responsible for the great horror flick “The Vigil,” but the outcome here was a

mixed bag. Regal Old Mill

HAPPENING: The best movie about reproductive rights made in a very long time. This should be required viewing in high schools and college. Tin Pan Theater THE LOST CITY: The combination of Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum and Brad Pitt in a romantic adventure along the lines of "Romancing the Stone" means I’m there for it. When Tatum leans into big, dumb and goofy, he’s a damn riot, and Pitt’s flowing hair and swarthy heroics make this look like a blast. Regal Old Mill MEN: From the writer/director of “Ex Machina” and “Annihilation” comes this deeply disturbing thriller about a woman who’s either dealing with something supernatural or she’s losing her mind. From A24, this is going to be a horror masterwork that stays in our minds for a very long time. Regal Old Mill MONTANA STORY: Hayley Lu Richardson and Owen Teague are both remarkable actors and this dark and bleak look at family trauma should finally net them some more recognition. “Montana Story” feels like a novel as it plays out in front of you like a Cormac McCarthy story he hasn’t thought of yet. Sisters Movie House THE NORTHMAN: From Robert Eggers, the director

of “The Lighthouse,” comes this epic Viking revenge saga filled with some of the most insane visuals we’ve seen in years. As excited as I am for the movie itself, I’m mostly just elated to see Bjork acting again since her 2000 breakthrough “Dancer in the Dark.” Regal Old Mill

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2: I have it on trusted au-

thority that this one is better than the first and has an all-time great comedic performance from the now (possibly?) retired Jim Carrey. Full disclosure, I used to work with one of the writers on this film and consider him a friend but would be excited for another great Jim Carrey role either way. Regal Old Mill

TOP GUN: MAVERICK: There’s a reason why Tom Cruise is the last true movie star and it’s mostly because he’s that perfect blend of creepy, weird and desperate to entertain us. America loves a little desperation in its stars and if Cruise dies on camera while flying a jet or jumping off a roof, we’ll worship him for it. Talk about a highway to the danger zone. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House, Odem Theater Pub, McMenamins THE UNBEARABLE WEIGHT OF MASSIVE TALENT:

In spite of his rage he’s still just Nicolas Cage. Regal Old Mill

Theater Summer SCREEN Cold Blockbuster season arrives (again!) By Jared Rasic 53

May 27 “Top Gun: Maverick:”

Courtesy IMdb

Taika Waititi is one of the most original voices in cinema right now and his “Thor: Ragnarok” is one of the highest high points of the MCU. Having an entire Thor film focused on him just wanting to live a life of peace while Natalie Portman picks up the hammer is going to be a bittersweet blast of madcap energy. Also, the character Christian Bale is playing in this is one of my all-time favorite Marvel comics villains, so I’m entirely too excited to see how bonkers this one gets. July 22 “Nope:”

Courtesy IMdb

I love the idea that this is the fake movie that inspired the “Toy Story” universe to make Buzz Lightyear action figures. It’s been a long time since Pixar went hard at a science fiction adventure story and just based on the trailers, this looks like one of their most serious films so far. Chris Evans as Buzz is perfect casting, so here’s hoping this is an entirely new direction the “Toy Story” franchise can head in. Imagine what a solo Woody action movie would be like.

Courtesy IMdb

June 24 “The Black Phone:”

Yeah, I know Tom Cruise is weird and possibly creepy and Scientology is definitely insidious, but he’s also the American Jackie Chan, doing stunts that make the audience’s mouth drop. He’s desperate to entertain us and a new “Top Gun” where a huge majority of the actors are really up there in the jets sounds like the reason movie theaters were invented. June 10

June 17 “Lightyear:”

Courtesy IMdb

Ethan Hawke was genuinely fantastic as the villain Arthur Harrow on Disney’s “Moon Knight,” so I’m really excited to see him take on the pitch-black character of a masked serial killer of children. This looks like a fun and frightening flick and the short story by Joe Hill is scary as all hell, so I’m hoping this is one of those horror movies that makes the entire theater laugh and scream as one. July 8 “Thor: Love and Thunder:”

“Jurassic World: Dominion:” To me, one of the first truly life-changing experiences I’ve had when watching a movie was the first time I saw “Jurassic Park” in the theater. It made me feel like anything was possible and that our imaginations could lead us into truly astounding places. I think I’ve been hunting that feeling ever since, and while I don’t think “Dominion” will come close to touching that rarified air, seeing Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum together again running from dinosaurs should be an absolute delight.

Courtesy IMdb

Jordan Peele’s follow-up to “Us” only has a very short trailer and basically no information about it out there, except for the fact that it has something to do with aliens. I hesitate to call Peele a master since he only has two films under his belt, but the way he blends social commentary with genuinely frightening and imaginative images keeps him high on my list of directors who have a lifetime pass from me. If he makes an ASMR movie focused on people chewing loudly, I’ll still be there opening night. August 5 “Bullet Train:” Courtesy IMdb

Courtesy IMdb

Why yes, I would like to see Brad Pitt fight assassins on a speeding Japanese bullet train from the director of “John Wick.” I’m glad filmmakers are making movies just for me now. As far as I know, all of these movies are exclusively playing in theaters before they land on any streaming service, so maybe I’ll see you out there for Cold Theater Summer.

I

s time passing more quickly or is that just a cliche for those of us thickly stuck in the midst of a midlife crisis? All I know is that it feels like the Summer Movie Season was just here, and now we’re already diving deep into another one just as theaters are seeming to be settling into some sense of normalcy. We’ve seen proof that movies like “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” and “Everything Everywhere All At Once” can still put butts in seats in the theater, but streamers like Hulu, Netflix, HBO and Amazon are dropping Hollywood blockbusters on the regular, so the idea of a Summer Movie season is almost extinct. Yes, our home theaters are sometimes even better than the public ones, but the entire point of a Summer Blockbuster is that it’s a movie that needs to be seen on the biggest screen possible on the best sound system available with a large group of excited strangers. So, here’s a look at some of the summer movies coming out that I’m genuinely looking forward to watching in a theater packed with you beautiful people.

Dogtown USA 2022 Canicross Dog and Jog

Instagram: @wicknasty @hellasweetink @hellasweetproductions

Central Oregon’s inaugural “Dog Jog” event happens at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds this Memorial Day weekend. The racing style is officially known as Canicross and pairs runners with their dogs for a one-of-a-kind cross-country team. “Getting the whole idea of Canicross across to people has been a bigger challenge than first anticipated…we call it the dog and jog just so it’s more inviting to everyone,” says Lauren Stegmaier of Alpine Outfitters, a dog wear brand that specializes in active dogwear. Canicross is designed as a way for sled dogs and owners to train during the off season. The race style is popular across Europe, Canada and parts of the U.S., but has yet to catch on on the West Coast. “Bend is known as Dogtown USA, so what better place to bring Canicross?” The event features three different races with 5k and 1-mile options for adults, as well as a 400-meter kid race. Although there is special Canicross equipment made for racing, all that is required for the Dog and Jog race is a leash and a well-behaved pooch. “If [runners] put on a harness [and dog] around their waist they could take 20 seconds off of their mile just ‘cause the dog’s going to propel them. And that’s what makes it so fun,” Stegmaier describes. Proceeds from the race go to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Central Oregon. There will be plenty of food and drinks for after the race as well as live music. Street Dog Hero, Three Rivers Humane Society and Pearson Paws Rescue will be present for adoption and rescue inquiries.

Barry Wicks prefers adventuring just for the “stoke” rather than podiums and medals.

itting in a folding chair at the base of the Red Chair, Barry Wicks is enjoying a typical springtime day at Mt. Bachelor. Surrounded by friends with a double stacked charcuterie board and fresh baked goods, he refuels for another session skinning up the mountain. Standing at a height of 6’5,” not many people can see eye to eye with Wicks, and even though professional athletes abound in Central Oregon, there is a uniqueness to his personality that is welcoming and inclusive, that breeds interest, captures the positive and nurtures a collective psych in everything outdoors. As the son of a Mt. Hood ski patroller, Wicks has skied all his life, but soccer was his game until his teens. “I played on a U13 team that was invited to play in Europe,” said Wicks. “During that trip I picked up a copy of a mountain bike magazine,” he remembers. “I knew immediately that I wanted to be a cyclist.” After moving to Corvallis during middle school, where skiing was no longer as convenient, he turned to riding a mountain bike. “My parents were always looking for ways to tire me out. I guess I was a bit of a wild and crazy kid,” he said. His seemingly endless energy would provide him a great platform for his professional future. “I was beginning to get tired of playing soccer, and my (schoolmates) at the time told me about the OBRA [Oregon Bicycle Racing Association] racing series, so I gave it a try and it was fun,” he said. So, he attended a few national events and placed well. Wicks spent 14 years as a professional cyclist, but got his start in collegiate racing at Oregon State University. “OSU had a pretty good program, which helped to fuel my cycling needs,” he said. “I took the

minimum course hours to maintain full time status so I could race bikes.” Fully immersing himself in the culture of bike racing, Wicks would hitch rides, couch surf, camp out in farm fields and do everything he could to make the start line. Shortly after graduating, he picked up his first professional contract. “I (finally) got to ride full time. My job was a bike racer,” says Wicks.

“I just want to share the stoke. I don’t care about making money. I just want to shout out ‘hey guys, this is so cool, come check it out!!!’ I’m just happy that what I’m doing resonates with people. That feels good.” - BARRY WICKS Wicks amassed some great results, including a Cyclocross National Championship in 2015. But there was something missing in his life. “Racing was never about being the best there is for me. It was always the process of learning and being the best I could be,” he says. “The sacrifice and compromise to become a top-level athlete is huge, and though I could see the pathway, I wanted to do so many more things than simply be a bike racer. The difference between 25th and 26th place didn’t have any meaning to me. “I traveled to all these rad spots but was so focused on the racing that I didn’t get a chance to stop and see the surroundings or meet the people.” His search led him toward the mountains, adventure trips and gravel riding, where the atmosphere is chill, and camaraderie more fulfilling. “The part of racing

that I am most proud of is that everyone who ever raced with or against me would say that I was always smiling,” he said. As a self-described “builder of bridges,” Wicks began to organize trips, experiences and events that both suited his desire to adventure, but also brought people together. Whether it’s an uphill ski challenge, a long bike ride or a crazy combination of the two, “It’s the event part that suits me better,” Wicks reflected. “I love the organizing and I get super psyched when people respond positively.” In keeping with his “all are welcome” mentality, Wicks organizes experiences where “the newbie and the pro are side by side, and both are having a great time doing it,” he says. “I just want to share the stoke. I don’t care about making money. I just want to shout out ‘hey guys, this is so cool, come check it out!!!’ I’m just happy that what I’m doing resonates with people. That feels good.” Early in the Covid pandemic, Wicks says, “although there was all this horrible suffering, I saw (an) opportunity to see the world in a different lens." As the outdoor industry was seeing a massive surge in participation, Wicks viewed the historic levels of interest as a chance “for more people to see the trees, the clouds and all that nature offers. It is a net-positive situation,” he says. “More people are getting (firsthand) experience with the weather, seeing an animal track and simply getting closer to that primal experience (that) has to be good for humanity,” he muses. “Although more people are out there, that should help more people feel THE GREAT AWAKENING. They will hopefully care (more) about the environment and the outdoors,” says Wicks.

Cue the May Flowers

What’s in bloom in the high desert and beyond this season By Sarah Mowry, Deschutes Land Trust Tyler Roemer

57 VOLUME 26 ISSUE 21 / MAY 26, 2022 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

Arrowleaf balsamroot is the OG Central Oregon wildflower that offers a bevy of medicinal and edible benefits.

Bitterroot, Lewisia rediviva. Look for these showstoppers in the sagebrush flats of the high desert! Though widespread, it can be easy to miss its short bloom season. Bitterroot have a green rosette of small, fleshy succulent-like leaves. Flowers are a vibrant deep rose, pink or sometimes white, up to 2” wide. Be sure to look down as you search for this beauty since bitterroot blooms very close to the ground. Bitterroot is named for Merriwether Lewis, who collected the first specimens for western science in the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana in 1806. Rediviva is Latin for the plant’s amazing ability to come back to life after being dug up, dried and stored—which it did back in 1806. Bitterroot is culturally significant for many Native tribes in the West, and usually blooms in May.

Brown’s peony, Paeonia brownii. From the common lupine and balsamroot, to the commonly found, but very unusual-looking, Brown’s peony! It’s easy to walk right by this small plant and not notice its incredibly cool flower. It’s low growing (10-20 inches tall) with lacy leaves and is usually found in sagebrush and ponderosa pine habitat. Its distinctive brown to maroon flower, often with green to yellowish edges, droops downward and is almost hidden underneath the plant. Each flower has 60-100 pollen-producing stamens that, when fertilized by insects will produce large, fleshy fruits that hang from the center of the flower. These fruits are harvested by rodents who in turn cache the seeds and help disperse the plant. Brown’s peony is one of only two peonies native to western North America and blooms May through June. an

Lupine, Lupinus family. Pair purple lupine with yellow balsamroot and you have quite the composition. Lupine are also iconic flowers in the mountain West, and the genus includes more than 220 species worldwide and 20+ species in Oregon alone! Identifying them can be challenging as they often hybridize, and actual plant characteristics won’t match up to your key. But it’s this diversity, though, that makes them fun to explore. In Central Oregon we have everything from tiny desert lupines to tall, streamside ones with enormous blooms. Lupines have large, palm-shaped leaves, come in colors from purple to pink to yellow

onger days, warmer temperatures, and puffy white clouds mean that spring is finally here in the high desert. As the season progresses, so do our local wildflowers moving from tiny, early bloomers to larger, bolder blooms. The high desert is alive with color in May and June, so soak in this brief season of green, gold, purple and white with these native species. Arrowleaf balsamroot, Balsamorhiza sagittata. It’s hard to talk about wildflowers in the high desert without mentioning one of the most common and showy wildflowers in the mountain West: the arrowleaf balsamroot. They light up our hillsides each spring with sunny, yellow faces that bring to mind sunflowers. Arrowleaf balsamroot is in fact in the sunflower family, and it grows in clumps on open hillsides or grasslands and have large widely triangular leaves that have heart-shaped bases. Their yellow flowers are 2½ -4 inches wide on 1-3-foot stems and are typically in bloom in May and June. The genus Balsamorhiza includes 13 species scattered throughout the West, and they can be confused with species in the mule’s ears, or Wyethia, family. Arrowleaf balsamroot provides food for native wildlife like deer and elk, nectar for native pollinators and offers seeds for birds and other small animals. Indigenous communities use balsamroot for a wide variety of medicinal and edible purposes.

White Bog Orchid, Platanthera dilatata. This delicate, white stunner is always a treat to find. Bog orchids, as their name suggests, like to grow in wet places near streams, springs, wetlands and bogs. Their white flowers grow on single spikey stems 6-36 inches tall. These orchids have one longer petal that creates a sac-like spur on the flower. The spurs have glands that secrete a nectar and a strong, often described as spicy, sweet scent to attract pollinators. The shape and size of the spur is adapted to fit the tongue length of the butterflies and months that pollinate it. White bog orchids bloom from May to August. As always, take photos, not flowers and be sure to stay on the trail so you don’t tread on those delicate blooms.

Oregon Craft Breweries Take Home World Beer Cup Awards

The World Beer Cup featured more than 10,000 entries from breweries around the world By Elizabeth Castillo, OPB Courtesy Unsplash

Central Oregon breweries, including 10 Barrel, Sunriver Brewing Company, Three Creeks and Deschutes Brewery, also took home awards in the World Beer Cup awards.

W

hen Lisa Allen learned the flagship beer from her brewery in McMinnville had won gold in a worldwide beer competition, she felt validated. “We, obviously, over the years, have put a lot of time and effort in and to have your flagship beer win is just really cool,” she said. The World Beer Cup featured more than 10,000 entries from breweries around the world. This year’s winners were announced earlier this month and 13 breweries in Oregon took home awards, including some smaller brewers. Allen is the head brewer and production manager at Heater Allen Brewing. It specializes in German and Czechstyle beers such as pilsner, which accounts for 70% of Heater Allen’s beer production. World Beer Cup judges awarded Heater Allen’s pilsner a gold at this year’s tournament. “It’s a beer we’re known for,” she said. “And I think, you know, we are one of the first breweries in Oregon to really kind of start specializing in brewing lagers.” When Heater Allen first opened, craft brewers were primarily still focused on IPAs, but Allen said that the landscape is changing and that restaurants and bars are more likely to serve a pilsner these days. Along with Heater Allen, StormBreaker Brewing also took home gold at the international cup. The Portland-based brewery won in the Extra Special Bitter category. Rob Lutz, owner and head brewer at the company, recalled the first time the beer was brewed for a fresh hop festival. “You’re kinda at the mercy of the farms,” he said. “The farmers were like, ‘hey, the hops will be ready on Thursday’…but they canceled the pickup and

said, ‘hey, it’s gonna be Friday,’ and then they canceled again.” Lutz eventually received the shipment of hops over the weekend. While he tries not to brew on Sundays, he had to make a concession for the extra fresh hops. And his wife offered to help out, too. “So she came in and spent the whole brew with me,” he said. “So we originally called the beer Extra Special Bethany in honor of my wife and sent it out to the competition.” While the brew didn’t garner first place wins in the beginning, over time, it gained recognition. “We knew we had something special on our hands,” Lutz said. “So we kept entering that beer and finally started to get some awards for it and now we’ve got arguably the biggest one in the world.” The World Beer Cup typically happens every two years but was canceled in 2020 because of the pandemic. This year’s Beer Cup was the largest competition yet, according to organizers. Nearly 2,500 breweries from more than 50 countries competed, with the U.S. winning more than 250 awards. And for Stephen Hughes, that recognition was exciting. Hughes is the head brewer at ColdFire Brewing in Eugene, which he co-founded with his brother. The brewery brought home a bronze for its Valley Mélange which was created via wild fermentation. Hughes started his career as a medical laboratory scientist and the concoctions he creates using wild fermentation ignite his passion for brewing. “We try to guide the process and certainly we have an end goal in mind. But it’s always a bit of a surprise,” he said. “It’s a really fun medium…It’s the thing that I think about the most that I’m most excited to do.”

From Farm to Bottle

ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A blogger named Sweetlikeacherry reminds us, “Some epiphanies are only possible when you put away your phone and go completely offline for a while.” She adds that sometimes you also need to at least partially avoid your phone and the internet if you hope to incubate new visions of the future and unlock important discoveries in your creative work and summon your untamed genius. According to my astrological analysis, all these possibilities are especially likely and necessary for you in the coming weeks. I trust you will carry out the necessary liberations to take full advantage. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Poet Carolyn Kizer

Grown Locally 2ndlifelavender.com

541-408-2212 2ndlifelavender@gmail.com

(1925–2014) won a Pulitzer Prize for her poetry. She was smart! But when she was young and still studying her craft in college, a professor objected to one of her poems. He said, “You have pigs in this poem; pigs are not poetic.” Kizer was incensed at such ignorance. She testified, “I got up and walked out of that class and never went back.” Judging from the astrological omens, I suspect you may have comparable showdowns headed your way. I advise you to be like Kizer. You are the only one who truly knows the proper subjects of your quest. No one else has the right or the insight to tell you what your work (or play) should be about.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo author James Baldwin said it wasn’t often “that two people can laugh and make love, too—make love because they are laughing and laugh because they’re making love. The love and the laughter come from the same place: but not many people go there.” Your assignment, Leo, is to be the exception to Baldwin’s rule during the coming weeks. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, there’s a high possibility that interesting eros can converge with humorous fun in a glorious synergy. You will have a knack for conjuring up ribald encounters and jovial orgasms. Your intuition will guide you to shed the solemnity from your bliss and replace it with sunny, carefree cheer.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I’m worried you will over-indulge in your pursuit of perfection during the coming weeks. It’s fine to be exquisitely skillful and masterful; I hope you do that. But if you get obsessed with flawlessness, you will risk undoing your good intentions. As an antidote, I offer you two pieces of advice. The first is from actor and activist Jane Fonda. She said, “We are not meant to be perfect; we are meant to be whole.” The second counsel is from philosopher and psychologist William James, who wrote, “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Author Mustafa Mahmoud described the signs of love between two people: 1. feeling a comfortable familiarity; 2. having no urge or need to lie; 3. being natural, not trying to be different from who one is; 4. having little or no possibility of being embarrassed in front of the other person; 5. experiencing silence as delicious, not alienating; 6. enjoying the act of listening to the other person. I bring these pointers to your attention, Libra, because the coming months will be a favorable time to define and redefine your understandings about the signs of love. How do you feel about Mahmoud’s ideas? Are there any more you would like to add? SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “We do not love each other without changing each other,” wrote author Madeleine L’Engle. Meditate on that gem, Scorpio. Now is a perfect time for you and your loved ones to acknowledge, honor, and celebrate the ways your love has changed each other. It may be true that some transformations have been less than ideal. If that’s the case, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to correct those trends. As for the positive changes that you and your allies have stimulated in each other: I hope you will name them and pledge to keep doing more of that good work.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “I always deserve the best treatment, because I never put up with any other,” wrote Sagittarian novelist Jane Austen. Sagittarian politician Stacey Abrams said, “From the moment I enter a room, I am clear about how I intend to be treated and how I intend to engage.” You’ll be wise to cultivate those attitudes in the next seven weeks, Sagittarius. It’s high time for you to raise your self-respect in ways that inspire others to elevate their appreciation and regard for you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 1963, Jim Munro and Alice Munro founded Munro’s Books, a store in Victoria, British Columbia. After being on the job for a few months, Alice found she was not impressed with many of the products they sold. “I can write better books than this,” she told Jim. Five years later, she published her first collection of short stories, Dance of the Happy Shades. Fourteen books later, she won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Will the coming months bring your equivalent of Alice Munro’s pivotal resolution? I suspect they could.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “True love for whatever you are doing is the answer to everything,” proclaimed performance artist Marina Abramovic. Amen to that righteous attitude! I hope you will embrace it in the coming weeks. I hope your heart and imagination will reveal all you need to know to bring tender fresh streams of true love to the essential activities of your life. Now is an excellent time to redefine the meaning of the word “love” so it applies to all your relationships and pursuits. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A homeless woman in a wheelchair stopped where I was sitting outside a café. She was pushing her belongings in a small shopping cart. “Would you like to go dancing?” she said to me. “There’s a nearby park that has a great grassy dance floor.” “Maybe another day,” I told her. “My energy is low. I’ve had a lot of personal challenges lately.” I’m sure the expression on my face was less-than-ebullient. “Cheer up, mister,” she told me. “I’m psychic, and I can tell you for sure that you will live a long life and have many more fine adventures. I’ll be in the park if you change your mind.” My mood instantly brightened. “Thanks!” I yelled toward her as she rolled away. Now I predict that you, Pisces, will have comparable experiences in the coming days. Are you willing to welcome uplifting surprises?

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Who loves the truth better than you Aries people? Who has the greatest potential to speak the real story in every situation, even when it requires extra courage? Who has more fun than you in discovering and defining and expressing the raw facts? In my Book of Life, you Rams are radiant beacons of candor—the people I go to when I need accuracy and honesty. And all I’m saying here will be especially crucial in the coming weeks. The whole world needs concentrated doses of your authenticity. Now read this pep talk from Aries philosopher St. Catherine of Siena: “Let the truth be your delight; let it always be in your mouth, and proclaim it when it is needed. Proclaim it lovingly and to everyone, especially those you love with a special love—but with a certain congeniality.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Before the 20th century, you couldn’t buy a loaf of bread that was already sliced into thin pieces. Then in 1912, the American inventor Otto Frederick Rohwedder developed a slicing machine. But all his work, including the blueprints and the machine prototypes, was destroyed in a fire. He had to seek new funding and begin again. Sixteen years later, his innovation was finally ready for broad public use. Within five years, most of the bread in the US was sold sliced. What does this have to do with you? I am picking up an Otto Frederick Rohwedder vibe when I turn my visions to you, Taurus. I suspect that in the coming months, you, too, will fulfill a postponed dream.

THE THIRD ACT

By Ellen Waterston

Thanks for hanging in there with me for a second column on this wacky theme of “Change your metaphor, change your life.” It’s just possible once we do, we’re no longer under the spell of the borrowed story, of the temporal and cultural myths that boss us around. See you later, memory, beauty, gut, bone and muscle supplements! Adios too late, too old! At some subconscious level, don’t we know we are part of a bigger question, a bigger answer, a bigger narrative? Doesn’t that explain why our dreams are filled with monsters and angels, and why we, in our dreams, find ourselves either stuck to the ground or flying free? These nighttime odysseys tap into a fundamental, ancient and eerily familiar aspect of ourselves …cowardly lions, heartless tin men. Haven’t we, in certain situations, needed some fairy dust, a magic lantern? And when it showed up, what form did it take? Could we ever have predicted? What in the world makes anyone think this amazing cycle suddenly stops? Just for the fun of it, let’s change out our belief that life occurs between the metaphors of birth and death and instead be on the lookout for configurations of experience and intersections of time that point a different way. Let’s not succumb to the cultural message that time is running out. That there is a “real time” to be “in.” Time itself is a metaphor. If we lose a day flying to China, where exactly does it go? Lost two years to COVID? What became of them? We had to give up our “metaphor” for what those years would look like, had to adapt, pivot, see the invitation in what took place instead, but no concrete thing was “lost.” Time travels. Time stands still. Time runs out. Time’s up. Time’s too short, too long. Time’s a’ wastin’. A beloved rancher friend once shared his homegrown theory about time. He said when you’re young, very young, “Time goes by real slow but the metabolism is hell bent. As you get older, time speeds up and the metabolism slows down considerable. At death’s door,” he continued, “the metabolism stops altogether, and yet time goes by so fast all your life’s experiences flash before you in one single, fleeting moment.” I can picture, as if it were yesterday, how he removed his sweat-stained cap, slicked down his gray hair with the

hand missing a forefinger thanks to a run-in with the tractor, and, carefully repositioning the cap back on his head, and asked: “What do you make of that?” Good question. I’ve been turning it over till the edges are worn smooth. Based on what he said, it would seem at some point the arcing ellipses of time and metabolism must intersect and when they do, should be in exquisite balance and harmony. Do you suppose this intersection is a single moment in our life? If so, it must be one of perfection. Orgasmic. How can we know when that single moment is? Or when we’re in it? Or is it a particular quality within each moment? If I practice, can I stay at that intersection and experience everything that way? Could I experience my whole life in the moment the fly line dances out over the river before it hits the water? Before a baby takes in its first breath on the way to a life-affirming cry? The time between the coyote’s laugh leaving its lips and when I hear it on the other side of the valley? Is it the moment just before we express our love—the expression of it waiting backstage anticipating its entry? Can we only recognize these instants in hindsight? Like salt thrown over the shoulder for good luck? Or can we live in the present and immediate knowledge of them eternally, by practicing, by nurturing an awareness that they are always happening around us, until it is the all and only of life? These are some of the questions I’d have liked to ask my rancher friend before he died. In each moment, we have all the time we need. We can’t count on how many moments that will be, but we can live honestly into each one as if it’s our last, out from under bossy cultural metaphors, robustly and courageously claiming our own. Anwar Sadat, the President of Egypt from 1970 until 1981, reputedly said, “I will not die one minute before my time.” Despite the risky policies he embraced, I’d always thought he meant he was in complete charge of when he’d die. I liked the idea. A lot. But when he was assassinated in 1981, I realized he’d meant he had no control of when his time would come but, at the same time, would not waste a minute worrying when that would be. —Poet and author Ellen Waterston is a woman of a certain age who resides in Bend. “The Third Act” is a series of columns on ageing and ageism.

How to Choose the Right Broker in Today’s Market

T

oday’s real estate market has many complexities, timelines and constant changes. It’s hard to stay on top of it all. If you don’t have a trusted, experienced broker on your side you are potentially putting yourself in a compromising position. So how do you choose the right real estate broker for your needs? A good place to start is asking the right questions. When interviewing brokers, be sure to ask how long they have been in the business and how many transactions they have facilitated. Ask them to tell you what they think is going on in the market currently and how it will affect you. You should also ask them to explain the sale agreement, especially what the timelines mean and any potential consequences around earnest money if the transaction is canceled. Having a clear understanding of the process before you get into an agreement is key. Next, be sure to understand your property’s complexities. I would be cautious when interviewing a broker and make sure they are experienced in selling properties that are aligned with your specific property type. There are a lot of brokers who pick specific areas or communities and become the

experts in those areas and know them well. Why is all of this so important? If a seller chooses the wrong broker, they have a lot to lose. For instance, you may have a property with a well and/ or water rights. If you choose a broker who does not have experience in these areas, it could be an extremely challenging and potentially compromising sales process for either the buyer or seller, or both! We are currently experiencing a shift in our market. No, the sky is not falling, but we are seeing our days on market longer, and prices are beginning to level out. Pricing is everything. You have to make sure the price you put out there on the market the very first day is the best price possible based on market demands. If you price too high, you risk your home sitting on the market much longer, even if you do price reductions. It’s a psychological thing. Bottom line? No matter whether you are buying or selling, or both, an experienced broker who understands inspection reports, pricing, lending complexities, how to properly navigate these things as well as ensure you are staying within timelines and contract requirements, is critical.
