Over the past several months, my staff and I have been hard at work interviewing the many candidates running for Bend City Council, Deschutes County Commission, state legislative seats and more. In the midst of this pandemic, we took extra precautions and met each candidate outdoors, giving them a minimum of 30 minutes of time to share with us—and our readers—where they land on important issues. It’s been a punishing schedule, but it’s the type of commitment we believe a newspaper owes to its community when, subsequently, we endorse candidates in those races. Not every candidate we interviewed received our support inside the elections endorsement issue you hold in your hands, and some of our endorsements may surprise you—but we believe we’ve done our best to offer each candidate a fair shake. That’s us holding up our end of this election bargain. Yours, dear readers, is to inform yourselves about the candidates and the issues, using this newspaper, and every other credible resource you can before you cast your ballot. (Hint: Most credible options are not found on social media.) It’s uttered every election season, but it truly does feel like democracy hangs in the balance this year. Thanks for reading, and to you eligible voters out there, thanks for doing your part to uphold the values and promise that a free and fair election presents.

Chill Out, Oregon Voters. We Got This.

y now, a great deal of fretting has been done over the state of voting amid a coronavirus pandemic. Many conspiracy theories have been thrown out about the potential for fraud in voting during a time when everyone is supposed to be social distancing. Even in Oregon—a bastion of mail-in voting and the first state to take up the practice—locals have shared their concerns. Some have worried whether the signature on file for them would match the signature they will submit on this year’s ballot. Others worried when their spouse’s ballot arrived on one day, but theirs didn’t. Others have fretted that maybe their mail carrier—the person who brought their ballots to their door in the first place— would see a campaign sign in the yard, decide they didn’t like that candidate or issue, and go rogue and discard their ballots. Oregon, you sound like the worriers from another time, or another state. Amid all of the paranoia and fear-mongering and outright lies you may be seeing on social media and out of the mouth of the person serving in the highest office in the land, you’re voting in a state that has had this in the bag longer than some of the voters on the rolls have been alive. Oregon’s voteby-mail system has been in place since 1998, and in 2020, it’s become the object of attention from other state leaders, who are wishing they had their voter-access game on point this year like we do. Point of fact: Republicans were the first to champion the system in Oregon, and right now, Oregon’s Republican Secretary of State, Central Oregonian Bev Clarno, is leading the charge for our vote-by-mail election this season. The few yahoo local Republicans who have tried to retweet the President’s fear-mongering about mail-in voter fraud deserve to be voted out the same way they were voted in —by mail. In short, we got this—and here in Oregon, it’s not a partisan maneuver, as you might be led to believe. It is completely normal for about 1% of ballots to be challenged in a typical election, Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship told the Source. It typically happens to first-timers or voters who haven’t voted in a while. Be sure to sign your ballot envelope; that’s one reason for rejection. If your ballot does get rejected,

you’ll get a notice in the mail. Follow the instructions on the card to remedy the situation. Same goes for a signature that doesn’t match: You’ll get a notice— and isn’t it nice that a real-live human is checking up to make sure someone didn’t sign your ballot on your behalf? If you’re worried about your ballot arriving, it should have done so by now. Call the Deschutes County Clerk’s office (541-388-6547) to get a new one if you don’t have yours. Same goes for a recent address change; call the clerk to get a new ballot if you don’t have yours, as you’re too late this election cycle to change your address. If you want to know if your ballot was received, visit oregonvotes.gov to find out. And if you haven’t already signed up for Informed Delivery through the U.S. Post Office, it’s worth doing so now. You’ll get a notification about mail that’s arriving on any given day, including any future ballots. Other issues? Call the clerk’s office. Helping you is what they get paid to do. And as for voter fraud, it happens— close to never. Oregon has seen voter fraud happen among 0.00001% of all votes cast since 2000. Nationwide, about 25% of voters cast their ballots by mail in 2018, according to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. Instead of placing your fear and worry and overall energy into kvetching about your signature on your ballot, the next two weeks offer plenty of other places to put that energy. Phone banks in swing states or for one of the many candidates or measures on this year’s ballot will gladly accept you as a volunteer. Elections observers are needed. And the site, protectthevote.net, is still accepting volunteers. Peruse our endorsements found later in this issue and use them—along with the videos we’ve recorded, and the many Zoom and other online interviews other groups have conducted to be an informed voter this election season.

If you follow the news closely you’ve probably read/heard that climate scientists are predicting that “unprecedented” and “once in a generation” events like the devastating wildfires and severe drought this year could become alarmingly more frequent in the future. It turns out that we don’t have 20-30 years to prepare for the effects of climate change;

climate change is already here. This November we need to elect leaders who believe in science including individuals with deep expertise in natural resource management.   In Deschutes County, we are fortunate to have Phil Chang running for County Commissioner. Chang has more than two decades of experience in natural resource management, with the majority of that experience in Central Oregon. In addition to being one of the founders of the Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project (DCFP), Chang has extensive experience with water conservation projects including working with Senator Merkley on irrigation modernization projects. What I like most about Phil Chang is his collaborative approach to solving big problems. With the DCFP he brought together timber industry representatives, environmentalists and firefighters to implement forest restoration and fuels reduction projects across 120,000 acres. The Board of County Commissioners currently lacks expertise in natural resource management and instead of taking meaningful actions to reduce the risk of wildfires they seem more interested in wasting County staff time (>200 hours) and thousands of taxpayer dollars fighting with the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA). Please join me in voting for Phil Chang on November 3rd! —Adrian Jones

someone is charged for heroin, they can get a costly (to the taxpayers) ticket to jail in minutes. Why not get these people a ticket to rehab, or treatment instead? Jailing addicts has never worked, but treatment can. Measure 110 would save millions in tax dollars by no longer treating addiction with a jail sentence, and at the same time offer treatment to those afflicted. I am sure that everyone knows someone who is suffering from addiction, a kid, a parent, a friend. These people deserve to have a chance. I am calling on central Oregon, to help pass measure 110, and offer these people compassion. —Ian Light


The Bend-La Pine School Board will soon be making the most important decision during their tenure in office. The selection of someone to lead our district is a critical one. The times are changing, and the School District has different challenges. With an increasing minority population (Latinos now comprise close to 10%), teacher training must include inclusion. The graduation rates need much improvement and homeless and special needs children have a deep need. The superintendent, as the supervisor of all students and staff, should have a command of the multi-million dollar budget and how it is spent.

Teachers and staff deserve a professional salary and proper educational tools should be available to ensure a first-class educational experience. I  sat on two school boards in my educational career and have been involved in superintendent searches. Seeking community, teaching, student and parental input is essential in this process. I believe that our current school board is up to the task. —Richard Asadoorian

Letter of the Week:

Ah, something to think about besides the current elections— yet a position just as important as any elected one. Thanks, Richard. Come on in for your gift card to Palate! —Nicole Vulcan


Two years ago I was addicted to opiates. I was fortunate enough to have insurance through my parents. I was able to get help with little to no cost to me. Most Oregonians are not so lucky. There are people suffering in our state daily. When these people are charged for their drug use, this limits options for work tremendously. Too long have we treated addiction with jails. It’s time for Oregon to take a progressive step and offer addicts the help they need. If

Control is the power to make the decisions that determine human purpose. It can be about the freedom of an individual to decide their own purpose or the power of the government to mandate what everyone can do or say. The United States of America’s Constitution is about the elevation of specific individual rights to decide, such as free speech and bearing arms, so that these rights are beyond the government’s ability to totally take them away. Thus, we have God-given rights instead of government mandated rights. To further protect the right of all individuals to decide, we also have a complex system that is so convoluted it is very difficult for anyone to overcome these barriers to gain total control of government.  This system includes the checks and balances of the executive, the judiciary and the legislative branches of government, the electoral college and state’s rights.  This system was designed to limit the power of government as well as the power of any group, be it a minority or a majority.  Who is most likely to protect your right to decide? Is it the career politician who has served over 40 years during a massive expansion of Federal and executive power, or is it the non-career politician who has much less long-term vested interest in the centralized power of Washington, D.C., politics? Exercise your power by voting! —Dave Kyle

Vote Melanie Kebler, Bend City Council Pos. 1

Vote Chris Piper for Bend City Council Pos. 3

Bend’s City Council position 1 race has two qualified and competent candidates running—and while the position is nonpartisan, the two bring differing backgrounds and philosophies. While it’s true that a city council’s role lies in handling the mundane business of roads and sewers and city codes, increasingly it’s clear that Bend also is sorely in need of cultural and moral leadership. As an example of how the rubber meets the road in this regard, when offered the recent opportunity to support the formation of a Human Rights and Equity Commission, current Councilor Justin Livingston voted against. Melanie Kebler was in support. Kebler is an attorney and an engaged resident who’s gained a deep understanding of City Council business by regularly live-tweeting from Council meetings, helping us all stay better informed. While Livingston has served as a relatively even-handed councilor, too many votes that appear strictly oppositional—such as a recent vote, along with Councilor Bill Moseley—against referring the critical city transportation bond to the ballot, have us concerned. Kebler is a proponent of supporting affordable housing by taking a deep look at city codes that could be changed to get more housing built, such as altering parking codes for multi-family projects, or finding other ways to incentivize builders to construct more “missing middle” housing like townhomes and microhomes. As the mother of a young child, she’s also a proponent of getting the city more involved in solving the child care crisis. And Kebler believes that timely communication with the public is key to the role—one thing we especially hope she, and the rest of the Council, takes up. Vote Melanie Kebler for Bend City Council Position 1.

With two veteran councilors walking away this year—including one moderate and one decidedly conservative councilor—the next iteration of the Bend City Council is undoubtedly going to look very different. We’d be pleased to see a progressive council that's also not afraid to stand up to powerful private interests—and at the same time, we recognize that having keen moderates on the Council will also help to bridge some of the partisan divides that invade even our small city. Chris Piper has demonstrated an ability to be that moderate voice who actually listens to constituents—a role he takes seriously enough to suggest that the Bend City Council be afforded administrative support to help the Council stay on top of the voluminous correspondence and requests from Bend residents. Listening to constituents and finding common ground is more important than ever, and Piper has been strong in both respects. Piper cannot be faulted for the controversy around his initial appointment to the Council; that was a decision made by the mayor and the rest of the existing Council. He can, however, be accountable for what he did after, which, by our accounting, included obtaining a local job when he was criticized for being a telecommuter, and working hard to be a moderate, measured voice on the Council. Piper’s work to cut costs to building and speed up affordable housing projects is admirable and needed—but we’ll be watching closely to see whether his acceptance of funds from the Central Oregon Association of Realtors elicits any votes that favor the powerful over the less fortunate. We sincerely admire the work opponent Megan Perkins is doing in founding Embrace Bend and advocating for a more inclusive culture in the City, but we believe she can continue to build on that important work in the community. Vote Chris Piper for Bend City Council Pos. 3.

Vote Anthony Broadman, Bend City Council Pos. 2 Vote Rita Schenkelberg Bend City Council Pos. 4 As City Councilor Bill Moseley’s dramatic tenure comes to an end, we welcome the progressive idealism Anthony Broadman will bring to this seat. Where Moseley’s attitude was often cavalier and self-absorbed, Broadman will represent Bend’s blue voters with measured pragmatism. As an indigenous rights lawyer, Broadman’s life’s work is centered on advocating for the underserved in federal court. At 41, he has a realistic perspective on how much Bend will grow and change in his lifetime and supports the transportation bond as the first step. Broadman has already shown city leadership by spearheading the effort to expand restaurant seating downtown in order to help some beloved local businesses survive the pandemic fallout. Unlike current city councilors, Broadman is ready to address the housing crisis with bold solutions, such as a city-supported effort to build a permanent winter warming shelter for people without homes in the Bend community. Broadman did accept $10,000 this summer from the Central Oregon Association of Realtors, an organization that is against affordable housing mandates in new developments: We’ll be keeping an eye on Broadman’s votes related to inclusionary zoning in the coming years. Broadman can be trusted as an authentic champion of equity, diversity and inclusivity: He’s already introduced proposals to the current City Council to provide child care for those who want to engage in the civic process, and he supports providing stipends for city councilors and those serving on committees in order to include new voices in City affairs. Broadman’s opponent, August Johnson, has different views on how Bend will accommodate growth: He wants to expand the urban growth boundary and “protect” single-family neighborhoods. Given that Portland State University’s population forecast predicts Bend will grow by another 50,000 residents over the next 20 years, Broadman’s proclivity for density and urban infill projects like the Bend Core Area presents a more realistic solution for Bend’s future. Vote Anthony Broadman Bend City Council Position 2.

Bend City Councilor Bruce Abernethy, who is not running for re-election, has served as both a Bend City Councilor and Mayor on and off for the last 20 years. During that time he’s gone from a die-hard champion of Bend’s “slow growth” movement to a more moderate voice in City politics. He was raised in an era where neo-liberal politics were gospel, and his retirement from City Council opens the door for a new generation of progressive thinkers to enter the debate. Rita Schenkelberg, 29, is part of a rising movement of socially minded liberals willing to stand up for inclusivity and equity and challenge the status quo. She wants to prioritize the City’s response to global warming, something that she says feels urgent as a millennial facing the stress of an uncertain future. Schenkelberg is a renter with direct experience in the city’s affordable housing crisis. We hope this translates into a City Councilor willing to challenge the city’s building and real estate lobbies that have dominated city politics through the backdoor for far too long. She’s also a mental health professional. Local calls to 911 involving mental health crises have gone up by more than 200% over the last 10 years. Schenkelberg has already suggested building out the City’s current crisis response team with even more trained mental health professionals, similar to the CAHOOTS program in Eugene. Michael Hughes, a local cannabis attorney, also threw his hat in the ring for this seat. He offered some innovative ideas about supporting BIPOCowned businesses with the City’s marijuana taxes, and decriminalizing minor drug possession. But Hughes was not as fluent on the City Council’s most pressing issues as candidates like Schenkelberg, Melanie Kebler and Anthony Broadman. Hughes ran for Mayor in 2018, which means he had plenty of time to do his homework. Vote Rita Schenkelberg for Bend City Council Pos. 4

Vote Phil Chang for Deschutes County Commissioner

Vote Scott Schaier for Deschutes County Sheriff More attention has been placed on law enforcement agencies in recent months, and with that comes a more informed conversation around the impact that its leaders can have on an organization. As Central Oregon grows and changes, we believe it’s time for new leadership at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s office. While L. Shane Nelson has been a strong leader for the office, too many instances of poor officer behavior and insider ball have happened on his watch. Nelson’s admission during our endorsement interview that he offers a daily, voluntary report to Immigration and Customs Enforcement about foreign nationals inside the jail did not sit well either. What’s more, his earlier support for repealing sanctuary law in Oregon was not the direction we wanted to see for a sheriff in a rapidly growing and diversifying county. Scott Schaier, on the other hand, would end the practice of sharing ICE information at the jail. Schaier, a candidate with fresher ideas overall, hails from the Bend Police department and plans to rapidly implement an officer wellness program for DCSO, similar to the nationally recognized one at BPD. Nelson said he’s doing that too—but it wasn’t until this campaign season that we saw it start to happen in earnest. We also like Schaier’s idea to name an undersheriff for DSCO—as strong leadership gets stronger with more supports like that. Both candidates have faced unfortunate events in their careers that we’d rather not see happening; Schaier was involved in the shooting death of Tyler Jacques in downtown Bend; Nelson was recently involved in a deadly highspeed chase, and bears the ultimate responsibility for the undesirable behavior of the officers who work under him. Ultimately though, we believe it’s time for new blood at DCSO. Vote Scott Schaier for Deschutes County Sheriff. Continued on p. 8

For most voters in Deschutes County, the County Commissioner position is not something to spend a lot of time worrying about. However, it’s one of the most powerful elected positions in the region. Commissioners play an oversight role for public health—which has never been more meaningful than during the pandemic. They also oversee the sheriff’s department, community justice, solid waste, fairgrounds and roads. We consider this vote the most important one in Deschutes County. We hope you’ll vote for change. It’s become exhausting to watch the incumbent, Phil Henderson, continue to lob costly and misguided appeals at the state because he has a “vision” for Central Oregon that spreads out, rather than up. In his attempt to turn nonprime farmlands into developable land he has made our county a laughingstock at the state level. His vision is simply another word for sprawl, and for anyone with the misfortune to sit in the ever-slowing tide of traffic moving up and down Hwy. 97, Henderson’s vision is a nightmare. Henderson’s inability to focus his energies on the possible has resulted in a laundry list of missed opportunities. He continues to spend countless county hours fighting marijuana businesses, regardless of the sea change in public opinion on the matter. He voted against the Bend Area Core special taxing district which gives a much-needed boost to redevelopment and had the temerity to reject a proposal from Bend-LaPine Schools to put a trained public health professional specialist in the high schools to prevent suicide and addiction. Phil Chang is a strong contrast, with a vision for the County grounded in current realities. His background in natural resources and as a renewable energy specialist will be a strong addition to the makeup of the commission. Foremost, he is a proponent of infill, which could drastically reduce the cost of growth and should allow the County to get back to the possible rather than tilting at development windmills. Chang has proposed donating parcels of land in the county to build affordable housing—a refreshing sign, because that’s possible under existing land use law. Perhaps more importantly, Chang speaks to the mental health crisis the County faces. When the County lost Tammy Baney as a commissioner, it lost its greatest champion of mental health services. As we look to recover from

the pandemic and the enormous fallout from sequestration for our community’s weakest members, we’ll need someone like Chang who recognizes that funding will need to shift to those struggling to recover. Vote Phil Chang for Deschutes County Commissioner.

Vote Eileen Kiely Oregon Senate District 27



Tim Knopp has been serving in District 27 (Redmond, Tumalo, Sunriver and Bend) since 2013 and during his tenure, the votes he has cast are stacking up against him. He voted against the Student Success Act, which will bring in an estimated $18 million to Bend-La Pine Schools. He was among the Republican senators to walk out of the 2019 session to block the cap and trade bill. While Knopp claims to support affordable housing, and sits on the board of First Story (a nonprofit providing assistance to firsttime homebuyers), he voted against Oregon’s landmark bill in 2019 to protect tenants from skyrocketing rents. And he’s the executive vice president of the Central Oregon Builders Association, a group that opposed Bend’s Affordable Housing Fee, which has provided millions for housing Bend’s working families since 2006. Eileen Kiely—who’s both served in the military and worked in corporate America—appears to be able to bring an assertive voice to Salem. Kiely has stated she will enthusiastically support the state’s effort to introduce “cap and trade” policies for carbon emissions, and help sell the idea to conservative skeptics. During her tenure as finance controller for Daimler Trucks, she gained experience adjusting to new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards, which eventually led to higher profits through reducing fuel costs. Despite the fact that Knopp penned an argument in favor of Measure 107 for campaign finance reform, he’s received thousands from out-of-state anti-abortion groups, Big Pharma (Gilead Sciences, PhARM, Johnson & Johnson), and corporations like Nike, Amazon, Comcast and Chevron. We don’t see this trend continuing with Kiely. Vote Eileen Kiely for Oregon Senate District 27.

Vote Jack Zika for Oregon House District 53 Throughout this campaign, Jack Zika has riffed about being “the housing guy.” While said lightheartedly, Zika has indeed had some big wins for housing for both Bend and Redmond in the two years he’s served as representative. He was behind the bill establishing a state pilot program that carved out land outside both Bend and Redmond’s urban growth boundaries for hundreds of new affordable housing units. Zika, a Republican, partnered with House Speaker Tina Kotek, a Democrat, on HB 2001, which allows for more housing types, such as duplexes, in residential zones, and he serves on Oregon’s Task Force on Addressing Racial Disparities in Home Ownership. As a real estate agent and the president of the Central Oregon Realtors Association, “the housing guy” may sometimes favor policies supporting types of real estate that don’t alleviate the housing crisis. COAR, for example, advocated for allowing vacation rental permits to follow with the sale of a property. What’s more, Zika’s belief in pushing for “regional solutions” around Oregon land use law is overambitious and unrealistic. But by and large, Zika’s bipartisan work around addressing the housing issue makes it difficult for us to advocate for firing him this time around. His participation, as a freshman legislator, in the Republican walkouts was a big strike, but when we asked him about it, Zika assured us he is no climate-change denier. Zika’s opponent, Emerson Levy, shows some promise as a future Central Oregon leader, but we believe she needs some more time spent in the region, diving into the issues before representing us. Vote Jack Zika for Oregon House District 53.

Vote Jason Kropf for Oregon House District 54

We would love to be framing this endorsement solely around the various positive attributes these two candidates bring in representing Bend in the Oregon State Legislative Assembly. We’d love to focus on voting records and backgrounds, as we do with most campaigns. Unfortunately, this race has been positively stained by a voracious string of attack ads and accusations that lead us to only one conclusion: We cannot stand by and let the vicious imaginations of state and local Republicans and their digital marketing gurus begin to infect Central Oregon politics in the way we are seeing now. At their face, both Cheri Helt and Jason Kropf are established politicians with records we can look to in order to glean their readiness and efficacy as leaders representing us in Salem. Helt is a successful businessperson; Kropf a longtime deputy district attorney. We philosophically agree more with Kropf’s policy proposals, but Helt, too, has proven to be able to reach across the aisle and to think independently even amid the pull of party politics. But during this campaign, Helt has put out numerous attack ads that have gotten even more nasty and twisted as time wears on. The most recent string of attacks—which Helt defended during the recent debate we co-hosted with other local media partners—alleges that Kropf, a deputy district attorney with no managerial responsibilities, was somehow culpable for the atmosphere of “harassment and intimidation” in the office where he works. Earlier this year, Kropf’s former co-worker, Jasmyn Troncoso, filed a claim against the Deschutes County District Attorney’s office, alleging she’d left the office due to the toxic work environment. Let’s be very clear: All people who allege things of this nature should be listened to and afforded due process to determine whether any alleged wrongdoing warrants further action. No woman—or man—deserves to face sexual or racial harassment in the workplace. At the same time, we do not believe that Kropf—a co-worker who served in no managerial role, and who was essentially in a lateral position as Troncoso, and who also was not named in Troncoso’s complaint—should bear any blame or responsibility for the allegations Troncoso is levying. Even the recent allegation by Helt that Kropf’s campaign had a hand in the efforts by the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association to get Troncoso to remain silent during the campaign appears to be a stretch aimed at lobbing any and all negative attention Kropf’s way. What’s more, Kropf has denied knowing anything about that attempt to silence Troncoso, and gave back the campaign cash he got from the Trial Lawyers once he heard about the effort. Amid the mudslinging, Kropf appears to be ascribing to the philosophy of, “when they go low, we go high,” attempting to focus his messaging around his fitness for office, and also Helt’s recent voting record. While some might see this as timid, it’s the type of campaigning we want to see in local politics: Focused on the issues, not loose associations that sound sexy in a TV ad. We also agree with the reasoning offered by a host of nonprofit groups that publicly announced continued support of Kropf this week: To drag an alleged harassment victim’s story into campaign ads could very well create a “chilling effect” for other victims, who may be reluctant to come forward in the future for fear that their experiences will be used for political gain. The fact that Helt—who has spoken of doing away with the ideological partisanship that has dragged our country so low in recent years—has approved and defended the decision to drag an alleged sexual harassment victim into her ads shows us she may not be as committed to decency as she professes. Jason Kropf is an experienced attorney, a longtime advocate for kids through the Court Appointed Special Advocates program, and a Bend Park and Recreation District board member whose votes on the board have shown a commitment to public process and standing up to powerful interests in Bend. He will be a solid, measured and prepared legislator for Bend in Salem. Vote Jason Kropf for Oregon House District 54.

Vote Shemia Fagan for Oregon Secretary of State

In the race for Oregon’s Attorney General—the position responsible for enforcing state laws and advocating on behalf of the state in federal (and other) courts—only one of the candidates on the ballot is an attorney, making the choice in this race relatively simple. Ellen Rosenblum served as a federal prosecutor and judge before first becoming attorney general in 2012. She’s a progressive candidate who’s worked to strengthen hate crime laws in the state, as well as developing a statewide bias-crime hotline to track issues of discrimination. She’s strong on environmental policy, taking dozens of legal actions against the Trump administration on deregulation and other environmental issues. She’s also an advocate for affordable health care and is currently defending the Affordable Care Act in the Supreme Court. Rosenblum’s opponents include Republican Michael Cross, best known for his attempt to recall Gov. Kate Brown, and Libertarian Lars Hedbor. Neither has the experience to succeed in this role, so the race should go to Rosenblum. Vote Ellen Rosenblum for Oregon’s Attorney General.

Deciding who to support in the Secretary of State race has come with much discussion and challenges, but Democratic nominee, Shemia Fagan, is the candidate we find most ready for the job. Amid a field of candidates in the primary, we opted to endorse Jamie McLeod-Skinner, while also lamenting that McLeod-Skinner did not choose to run for Rep. Greg Walden’s seat once again. The Secretary of State serves many pivotal roles, not the least of which is conducting audits of state agencies and maintaining a check on the levers of power elsewhere in the state. Amid a Democratic supermajority (a situation that can demonstrate the tyrannical failings of a two-party system) having someone willing and ready to stand up to power—even power in one’s own party—when handling audits or election-season issues is key. Both recent Republican Secretaries of State, the late Dennis Richardson and his appointed successor, Bev Clarno, have demonstrated the value in strong leadership without partisan leanings, and we hope their successor takes cues from them. With Oregon not having a lieutenant governor, however, the Secretary of State serves as the successor to the Governor—a prospect that should not be taken lightly. While both Fagan and her opponent Kim Thatcher have plenty of experience serving as state legislators and understanding the architecture of state government, we believe Fagan’s values and voting record better reflect those of wider Oregon. We expect whoever wins this seat to take off their partisan hat and to serve all Oregonians with fairness and an eye for efficient, effective state government, but our support goes to Fagan.

Vote Ellen Rosenblum for Attorney General

Vote Yes on Measure 107 – Campaign Finance Reform



Vote Yes on Measure 107 to amend the Oregon constitution and allow state and local governments to put campaign contribution limits in place. If this passes, it gives Oregon lawmakers the green light to draw up regulations around limiting contributions. The influence of multinational corporations and wealthy donors has disproportionally tipped the scales away from the average voter in American politics— and Oregon’s state politics. Oregon is one of seven states that allows corporations to donate money. In 2019, corporate interests donated half of what lawmakers raised. You may be surprised to learn that Oregon leads the nation in per-capita corporate donations. This is not a healthy accolade for our body politic. “The most common effect isn’t what you do. It’s the bills that you never submit, much less fight for,” former Oregon Secretary of State Phil Keisling told The Oregonian. The cost of campaigning has also become prohibitively expensive. In 2016, the cost of running for a seat in the Oregon House was nearly $250,000, twice what it costs in neighboring Washington. The 2018 race for governor broke state records, with both candidates raising $40 million. But the key to this amendment lies in the message it sends to state lawmakers, some of whom have used campaign funds to pay for lavish dinners, hotels and vacations. They’ll be challenged next year to place limits on themselves.

Vote Yes on Measure 108 - Vape Tax Measure 108 would create a tax on nicotine vaping and heated tobacco products. Under the ballot measure, the monies would first go to the administration and enforcement of the tax. The remaining revenue would then be allocated to the Oregon Health Authority for medical and health care-assistance programs, including mental health services and other programs concerning tobacco and nicotine health issues. “Sin taxes” by their nature are unfair. They often hit our most vulnerable population, and this measure is no exception. While this measure appears to be a slam dunk yes vote, opponents of the measure have rightly pointed out that people attempting to stop smoking do use vaping as a successful means to quit. That said, vaping is not a healthy alternative. As more research continues to pour out on this relatively new addition to the pantheon of sinful products, it would be good if there was a higher bar for use. In addition, these products are currently not taxed at all—and there is no denying that their use does have an impact on the health system. Deriving some additional revenue from vaping is a necessary part of the commerce of these products, or at least it should be. Vote yes on Measure 108.

Vote Yes on Measure 109 – Clinical Use of Psilocybin Measure 109 legalizes

the use of the plant medicine psilocybin in a clinical setting. It was spearheaded by two Portland therapists, Sheri and Thomas Eckert, who have been working to make psilocybin legal and accessible for years. Psilocybin may induce an altered state of consciousness with feelings of euphoria, visual and mental hallucinations, changes in perception, a distorted sense of time as well as spiritual experiences. The Eckerts say the medicine works to shift reoccurring neurological loops, breaking the cycle of intrusive flashbacks that debilitate people suffering from ongoing trauma and depression. A trained therapist can help clients integrate their psilocybin experience and improve their outlook on life and sense of well-being, proponents say. The passage of Measure 109 doesn’t mean new psilocybin stores on every street corner. Instead, the medicine will only be available through licensed psilocybin therapists (within licensed clinics) who will control dosage and screen out people who may be prone to negative side effects. The Oregon

Health Authority will be charged with licensing, training and ongoing educational requirements. Critics of the measure argue that it will create a medical model around a form of therapy that indigenous cultures have been using for centuries. In reality, the Oregon Supreme Court has officially honored the religious use of hallucinogens as a First Amendment right since the 1980s. This measure cracks open a door that has been bolted shut since the Controlled Substances Act made psilocybin a Schedule I drug in 1970. Promising research began in the 1960s that demonstrated psilocybin could help with alcoholism, depression and anxiety. That research has seen a renaissance in recent years at institutions like Johns Hopkins University and Harvard University, and in 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration designated psilocybin as a “breakthrough therapy” for treating major depressive disorder. Oregon ranks dead last in the country for high rates of mental illness combined with low access to care. Add that to the isolation and economic fallout caused by the pandemic and we have a crisis that calls out for innovative solutions. Measure 109 presents the opportunity to not only help Oregonians, but make history in the process.

Vote Yes on Measure 110 – Drug Decriminalization We are all veterans of the

War on Drugs. And at this point, we have little to show for it. Unfortunately, the history of this conflict is one where community members suffering from addiction have been thrown in jail and branded as criminals for life. But the tide is turning. This election, voters have the opportunity to extend folks some needed medical and mental health treatment. Measure 110 decriminalizes the possession of drugs for personal use. (Yes, that means people with small amounts of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, etc. won’t be charged.) It funnels some of the state’s growing cannabis tax revenue into addiction treatment services. The Oregon Criminal Justice Commission declared last year that Oregon has one of the worst substance-abuse problems in the country and also ranks the worst for access to treatment services. In many places in Oregon, people have no access to treatment at all. For those on the Oregon Health Plan, the only rehabs that accept it have month-long waiting lists. Meanwhile, the state spends $1 billion a year keeping small time drug offenders behind bars and wastes tax dollars on arresting and prosecuting people for minor drug possession—not to mention the decades of documented drug policies that have kept Oregon’s BIPOC community jailed at rates much higher than the general population. Portugal decriminalized drugs in 2001; today it has one of the lowest overdose rates in Europe along with the least drug-related HIV infections. The New York-based Drug Policy Alliance, along with Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook founder), has raised millions to support Measure 110. If passed, Oregon would be the first state to decriminalize personal possession. Oregon Recovers, a lobbying group for the rehab industry, is against the measure, essentially because they didn’t write it and weren’t consulted. While you might see the recovery community campaigning against the measure, a large part of that opposition come from the fact that Oregon Recovers has its own plan to raise revenue for state-funded treatment through a tax on alcohol. That tax has already failed five times in Oregon, and our community cannot wait. Vote Yes on Measure 110.

Vote No on Deschutes County Prohibition on New Pot Businesses Is there anyone else out there that yearns for the return of a pro-business Republican party? Where have the champions of the invisible hand of the free market gone? They’re certainly not sitting in the halls of the Deschutes County Board of Commissioners, where voters are being treated to another Phil Henderson and Patti Adairconcocted measure to cater to a micro-set of voters impacted by an agricultural product that they deem sinful. This measure is the result of the very real and costly failures the county has suffered at the state level around marijuana and the very real prospect that continued efforts in this area will be deemed unconstitutional through litigation. To stop this, the commissioners need a local measure to stem their anti-business loss. The most amusing part of the measure is the idea that the commissioners are responding to rural voters who support the measure and say that these lawful agricultural operations are disturbing their way of life. This is a constituency of folks who live on rural land and

as they piddle around with hobby farms, cost the county negative $25 million, by some estimates. While there may be some legitimate commercial interests here, for the most part these are lifestyle folks who wouldn’t know the right end of a plow if it pushed them under. What’s more, we suspect that a great many of those opposed to marijuana growing do not understand that much of the “pot” they are seeing in their communities is actually hemp—which is legal even by federal law these days. The ultimate irony here is while Henderson is out campaigning this election on his expensive attempts to change land-use law around “non-prime farm lands” to development, he’s backhanding the very industry that found a way to turn these non-prime lands to profit. A “no” vote on this means that new marijuana businesses can at least try to get new, legal, and law-abiding licenses approved, even while an anti-marijuana regime reigns in the halls of county government. Oh my…Vote no on this senseless measure.

Vote Alex Spenser for Oregon's Congressional District 2

Vote Jeff Merkley for Oregon U.S. Senator A September poll from Civiqs had Jeff Merkley leading this race by 20 points. While this could be a sign of good governance on Merkley’s part, it doesn’t hurt that his Republican competitor, Jo Rae Perkins, is a QAnon conspiracist who falsely claimed Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler plotted to start Oregon’s wildfires. It turns out that running to the right in the Oregon primary for Senate may not be a winning strategy. Merkley introduced the third-most bills last year of any Senator. If a blue wave sweeps the Senate, we can expect the junior Senator from Oregon will see many of his bills pass and his hard work will most likely result in important committee appointments. Before heading to D.C., Merkley spent 10 years in the Oregon legislature, including two as speaker of the House. Then, as now, he pushed for health care expansion, climate change legislation and LGBTQ rights. Merkley has brought millions into the state for irrigation projects, infrastructure, wildfire relief, public health and the Oregon tribes. Merkley recently commissioned a study of how Big Oil and other powerful corporations have captured the court system to block climate action. He also helped mobilize public opinion against the President’s policy of separating immigrating children from their parents at the U.S./Mexico border. It’s reassuring to have a candidate who is so authentic and hardworking as U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley representing Oregon. He has earned another term.

Vote Joe Biden for U.S. President; Kamala Harris for Vice President When we look back upon this endorsement, we’d like to recall some of the reasons we saw promise in the eventual President Biden, rather than the near-endless reasons to cast a protest vote that sees #45 exit his self-made swamp. At most basic, Americans need a president who will deliver both honesty and decency and the feeling that he (or she) has their best interests at heart. Among the more detailed reasons to support him: his commitment to addressing the economic impact of the coronavirus through loans for small businesses and direct payments to families, and raising the federal minimum wage and boosting green manufacturing jobs. His “Buy American” initiative will also please the voters who supported Trump for a similar plan. Biden’s plans to expand public health insurance and to develop a national test-and-trace program also offer the leadership we should have seen throughout this ordeal. Also absent this year is a clear message from the top that systemic racism won’t be tolerated. Biden puts his money where his mouth is by proposing $30 billion in minority business support and advocating for racial-justice reform in courts and prisons. Rather than “defunding the police,” Biden advocates for more mental health supports and community policing. What’s more, Biden is determined to restore the U.S.’ reputation and diplomacy internationally. Biden is perhaps a strawberry flavor of balm when what you wanted was pineapple, but nonetheless, he’s the balm the United States has, and badly needs. Vote Joe Biden for President, and make history by voting Kamala Harris the first Black woman V.P.

Oregon’s Congressional District 2 is famous for its impossible construction. It’s so large it could be a state—stretching from Ashland to Hood River and the border with Idaho. We were severely disappointed to see, after the stellar campaign that Jamie McLeod-Skinner ran in this district in 2018, winning Deschutes County, that the Democrats had little planned for this race when Rep. Greg Walden retired. Many of the candidates in the Democratic primary were famously underqualified, and sadly, McLeod-Skinner was not among them. Running strong candidates for the House of Representatives makes the winning candidate for the race accountable so you don’t end up with a repeat of Walden’s term, defined by his lack of presence in the district. Republican Cliff Bentz has the kind of experience that makes him a natural to run as the conservative for this position. His experience living and ranching in the district gives him the real-life background to represent his constituency. His years serving in Oregon’s House and Senate give him the necessary chops to be effective for the district. It’s the kind of background you would hope to see from his challenger. However, Bentz falls short on a plethora of issues. Embarrassingly, Bentz champions his leadership in the Republican walkouts of the 2019 legislative session. It makes you wonder what other types of undemocratic partisan gamesmanship he is capable of as he moves to a larger stage. He supports Trump’s efforts to take away public lands through the revision of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). If you haven’t watched “Public Trust: The Fight for America’s Public Lands,” now’s the time. Bentz is also against the Affordable Care Act, and he’s against a woman’s right to choose. Let’s be clear: Bentz is not a moderate. And, for the most part, neither are most of the areas in District 2, with one notable exception: Bend. We don’t think it’s too much to ask Bentz to recognize the economic importance of our city and temper his pro-Trump rhetoric with some politics that are going to make our booming city feel like our representative has our interests at heart. Sadly, that’s not the case right now, but we do hope Bentz, unlike Walden, will take the time to learn the nuances in the difference between Central and Eastern Oregon. Vote Democrat Alex Spenser for Oregon’s Congressional District 2.

Family of the late Tom Petty will not back down against Trump.

two organizations warned Trump to stop using “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” as well as any other Rolling Stones songs. According to BMI, once an artist issues a cease-and-desist letter, any future use constitutes a breach of contract. And so it was that, on the last night of the Republican National Convention, the gathering of unmasked supporters on the White House lawn were deprived of the upbeat anthems. Still, during the closing ceremony, the singer Christopher Macchio  came out on the White House balcony to serenade the President and his entourage with a semi-operatic set that featured the late Leonard Cohen’s devastatingly bitter breakup song “Hallelujah.” Apart from its title, Cohen’s borderline vicious ode to God-knows-what was an inexplicably bizarre addition to a medley that included classical-crossover fare like “Ave Maria” and “Nessun Dorma.” This is, after all, a song with lyrics like “I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch / Love is not a victory march / It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah.” According to the White House, Trump makes all of the final decisions when it comes to songs. Cohen’s estate has indicated it is exploring its legal options in regard to Trump’s use of “Hallelujah.” Instead of the Rolling Stones, he’s replacing it with his fans’ second-favorite rally song: the Village People’s “Y.M.C.A.” There’s something almost endearing about seeing MAGA supporters joyfully getting down to the racially integrated and flamboyantly dressed group’s ode to intimate male bonding.  But Village People leader Victor Willis is not amused, as he conveyed in a recent Facebook post: “I ask that you no longer use any of my music at your rallies, especially ‘Y.M.C.A.’ and ‘Macho Man’, following the George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter marches,” he wrote. “Sorry, but I can no longer look the other way.”

Children of the Candy Corns LITTLE BITES Beyond the corn-syrup variety, here are some other corny treats for this time of year

By Nicole Vulcan

Megan Baker

By Ari Levaux


We Heart Locals’ Nights Where everyone (should) know your name Sweet or savory, chicos make for a tasty autumnal treat.

dress like Bootsy Collins. And corn? It’s to Halloween like frost is to a pumpkin. A sign of the times. The inevitability of progress. So allow me to tell you how I make chicos. I made about three dozen ears’ worth, which won’t last too long but is a nice stash. Chicos The only ingredient is corn, preferably with the husk on. Traditionally, the process involves a clay oven or “horno,” but other ovens work too. Ultimately, you’re doing little more than drying out corn. Although usually made with fresh corn, I’ve also made chicos with frozen corn, and the operation was surprisingly successful, even if the product lacked the soulful smokey flavor that a roasted corn husk imparts. Turn the oven to 300 and place the ears directly on the oven racks, not touching one another, and bake until the husks start to dry out and brown and even smoke a little – about three hours. When cool, peel off the husks. If using husked or frozen corn, skip this step. Put the cobs on the oven racks, spaced so as not to touch one another, and bake at 225, until the kernels start to shrink and visibly dry out – about four hours. Let the ears cool completely and rub off the kernels — try the edge of a spoon if they are stubborn. Store in a plastic bag in a cool, dry place. The drier you get them, the longer they will store. If making chicos from frozen corn, spread the kernels on a cookie sheet and bake at 225. They will take less time

— about two hours — and will quickly turn brown and then black. Chicos and Milk Fill a bowl with chicos and milk, with sugar to taste. It might taste familiar. When the chicos are gone and you sip the sweet milk that remains, you may feel a distinct déjà vous to a time, long ago, when you sipped the sweet leftover milk from a bowl of corn flakes. Beans with Chicos A handful of chicos turns a pot of beans into something interesting and delightful. Served alongside rice, you’ve got a delicious meal with complete protein. Serves 2 1 strip of bacon (optional, recommended), chopped 1 tablespoon olive oil if skipping the bacon or if it’s lean ½ cup minced onions 1 clove garlic, minced 1 teaspoon minced fresh oregano or thyme ¼ cup chicos 1 can of plain beans (pinto, white, black, kidney….) including the liquid 1 can of water or stock 1 teaspoon paprika or chile powder to taste Salt, if the bacon doesn’t add enough Fry the bacon on medium heat. When half-crispy, about five minutes, add the onions, garlic and herbs. Fry until the onions become translucent. Add the chicos beans and water and stir together. Season with salt, if necessary. Heat to a simmer, stirring as necessary to prevent sticking. Adjust seasoning and serve.

alloween, more than almost any other holiday, is about fun. Unlike Christmas, Easter, Mothers or Fathers Days, all of which involve a certain amount of stress and sacrifice if not guilt, Thanksgiving is fun but it’s a lot of work. Halloween is a lot of play, nearly unmatched in its unbridled hedonism. It’s like New Year’s, but with corn syrup instead of booze. It began with the Gaelic festival Samhain, which celebrated the end of harvest while ushering in the dark half of the year. Autumn was a spooky time when the boundaries between the living and spirit worlds were thought to become more porous. Brought to America by Irish and Scottish settlers, Halloween found footholds in the southern colonies, and developed a more playful, mischievous, and decidedly corny vibe. Candy corn didn’t start out as a Halloween treat, but jumped on the bandwagon in the 1950s, as Halloween pivoted into a full embrace of processed sugar. They may only taste good if you’re starving, diabetic or a food coloring enthusiast, but apparently that’s about half of all Americans. Corn officially became spooky with the release of “Children of the Corn,” a 1984 movie about a midwestern village where the kids took over and decided nobody was permitted to age beyond 17. In 1993, the world’s first for-profit corn maze was built in Annville, Pennsylvania. Since then the tradition has taken off, and corn mazes—aka maizes—now number in the thousands. When I lived in New Mexico I learned about chicos, a type of Native American dried corn. “Chicos” means “little boys” in Spanish, as the kernels shrink when dried. The ones for sale at the store were dried to the hardness of popcorn, but when I make them at home I let them stay a bit chewy, like real-life versions of candy corn. But nuttier, and cornier. Each batch of chicos has a unique character, with different levels of brown, crunchiness, chewiness and/or sweetness, depending on the corn and how long it’s roasted. Many Halloween corn mazes are closed this year, thanks to the virus. And door-to-door candy-begging is largely out, too. If treat-seekers are left to their own devices I’m fine with that, because processed sugar is poison, and a tradition that hinges on giving candy to kids isn’t worth rescuing. Luckily, nothing about the original spirit of Halloween demands candy. Spookiness, on the other hand, is in Halloween’s DNA, as is my right to

SCREEN The Lovely Ghosts

Grief is a spirit in "The Haunting of Bly Manor" By Jared Rasic

Some audiences will definitely find “Bly Manor” too slow and ponderous, especially in comparison to “Hill House,” but at the end of those nine hours everything comes together so beautifully that it’s hard not to look at this as one of the most perfectly constructed ghost stories of the last decade. ing role for “You’s” Victoria Pedretti) is haunted by a death she can’t stop seeing over and over. She’s hired to be the governess for two children at an old manor in the English countryside, but the splendor of the idyllic locale is offset by the terror she feels as she tries to get close to anyone new she meets. The kids, also touched by loss and struggling to process their grief, cling

desperately to the adults in their lives, just wanting a sense of normalcy to return. The chef is losing his mother to dementia, the housekeeper was abandoned by her husband and struggles to trust anyone and the gardener walks a fine line between pain and rage that she masks with self-deprecation. Everyone at Bly is covered with cracks and being filled up one breath at a time by the lonely, jealous dead. Bly Manor is filled with ghosts, both subtextual and literal, but none of them are as pronounced as the ones the living carry with them. Grief is a black dog with fangs and no amount of things that go bump in the night can ever be as scary as that.

From Mike Flanagan, the horror auteur behind “The Haunting of Hill House” and “Doctor Sleep,” comes “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” a genuinely heartbreaking ghost story loosely based on the work of Henry James, such as “The Turn of the Screw” and some of his lesser known short stories. While “Bly Manor” is nowhere near as scary as “Hill House,” it’s not

really meant to be, either. “Bly Manor” luxuriates in mood and dread while exploring the many kinds of love, both healthy and otherwise, and making the audience fearful not for the next jump scare, but for the characters so desperately seeking a happy ending and doomed for the opposite. Some audiences will definitely find “Bly Manor” too slow and ponderous, especially in comparison to “Hill House,” but at the end of those nine hours everything comes together so beautifully that it’s hard not to look at this as one of the most perfectly constructed ghost stories of the last decade. If every love story is also a ghost story, then every ghost story is also a

romance. To be haunted by something is to allow the ephemeral to live within us and tie us to what has gone away. Flanagan and his perfect cast don’t just want to scare us, they want us to gain strength from our longing and to find peace with the empty rooms and unfinished sentences. He wants to remind us that even as we are haunted by ghosts, so too are we possessed with love. That struggle can be a horror movie, for sure, but that doesn’t mean it has to be scary.  The Haunting of Bly Manor Created by Mike Flanagan Grade: ANow Streaming on Netflix

ltimately, every love story is also a ghost story. At some point or another, one person loses the other and then all that’s left are memories and empty rooms; a never-ending ellipsis sprawling out into the future like an unfinished sentence. “The Haunting of Bly Manor” is a nine-hour-long mini-series that combines love, death and time into a bittersweet elegy for interrupted futures and dashed dreams. A love story haunted by loss. Nine hours are spent with characters aching for something different, but too caught in the loop of their own trauma to change anything or to even know that they should.

Glacier Funeral

By Nicole Vulcan

After commemorating the loss of Clark Glacier, the Oregon Glaciers Institute looks ahead at what’s to come



Aaron Hartz

Learn About Gravel Biking in the Skyline Forest

Ever wanted to bike the Skyline Forest, but don’t know where to go? An upcoming webinar gives locals the chance to learn about gravel biking on the privately owned land. The Deschutes Land Trust—which has long worked to help preserve the forest and protect it from development—is partnering with Dirty Freehub for a virtual event centered around gravel biking in Skyline Forest. Kevin English of Dirty Freehub and Brad Chalfant of the Deschutes Land Trust will host the free event, which takes place Oct. 27 from 7 to 8pm. Get a link to the online webinar at deschuteslandtrust.org.

OGI was surprised to find that Crook Glacier on Broken Top is still technically active, but barely hanging in there.


n Oct. 18, on South Sister, the Oregon Glaciers Institute held a funeral for Clark Glacier, pronouncing it “dead.” Well, they almost held the funeral. Due to rain and wind conditions the team was unable to make it to the glacier itself, where they planned to livestream on Instagram while commemorating the life of the Clark Glacier. The team of hikers still held a moment of silence at the trailhead. You might be asking, what does a “dead glacier” mean? To the recently formed Institute, it means this is it—Clark Glacier will never be what it used to be. A live glacier will be moving and shifting under all of that mass of white and blue—something Clark is no longer doing. “Mostly it was the sentiment to help people realize that our environment is changing,” says Head of Field Operations Aaron Hartz. “When that ice shrinks to a certain level, once you get much less than 100 feet thick of ice the glacier tends to stop moving. One way to think of it: a glacier can either completely disappear, or you can have remnants of ice, like a dead animal carcass.” The Oregon Glaciers Institute was founded in May this year by Hartz and President and Chief Scientist Anders Carlson. With no government agency tracking glaciers in Oregon, OGI is taking up the charge, recounting the number of glaciers left in the state. At the


start of the 20th Century, it was more than 40. The group monitors each glacier’s health by measuring its mass balance and gathering data to track future projections for Oregon’s glaciers. “The funerals a year ago for glaciers in Switzerland and Iceland were the initial spark. Like wait a minute, this is also happening here in the U.S., and no one seems to be paying attention. It turned out that we knew so little about the glaciers in Oregon, not even how many glaciers exist in the state,” Carlson told the Source. “At some point, you have to put your money in or get out of the game, and in for a penny, in for a pound. And we did it as if not us, then who and when. There is only a decade left or so to effect change and after that, it’ll be just sweeping up the pieces.” As OGI puts it, glaciers are more than just cool things to look at— they also serve entire ecosystems. When all the snowpack is gone, it’s the glaciers that feed mountain streams and supply water sources to animals, Hartz said. Without glaciers, the entire environment will function differently and certain species may be forced to migrate. “We do still have a lot of live ones. Some of them have quite a bit of ice. It’s really hard to predict what they will look like in 10, 20 or 30 years,” Hartz said. “Data from worldwide shows that glaciers are shrinking and our climate is becoming warmer with increased carbon-dioxide in the atmosphere. The

trend is that they will shrink because they melt more in the summer than the snow they are getting in the winter.” To make a significant change we’d need to act fast, the group says. “From a global perspective, we have about a decade left to make serious change. After that, it will be picking winners and losers as the world fundamentally changes. We are already in a bad state. Humans evolved in a world where carbon dioxide never exceeded 300 ppm. At the current carbon dioxide levels, the geologic record places the last equivalent climate to be more than 3 million years ago when Lucy roamed Africa,” says Carlson. “We aren’t built for the world we are creating through our use of carbon. We can’t go backwards to pre-carbon times like pre-1850 and no one (myself included) wants to give up their laptop and electric lights, so we need a new fuel source. We have to change our way of thinking and give up our love affair with the internal combustion engine. It is 19th century technology and we do live in the 21st century! We can do better!” To help people understand the issue, the Oregon Glaciers Institutes is holding a virtual presentation this week.  OGI Virtual Presentation

High-Performance Homes

Connecting efficiency, comfort, health and durability issues, and they also have long-lasting materials which require less maintenance. When you construct a home that can stand the test of time, all the energy and materials that went into making it remain there, reducing the need to produce more replacement materials. This is a more forward-thinking approach and always takes into consideration the total cost of ownership of a home. Properly executed air sealing and mechanical ventilation providing clean indoor air for the occupants will extend the lifespan and durability of a home. The building envelope is a continuous barrier around the perimeter of the home that is a physical separation between the conditioned and unconditioned environment and helps make the home resistant to air, water, heat, light and noise transfer. Northwest AeroBarrier, a local company, uses a process that stops air leakage from within the home by pressurizing the space and spraying a fine mist of waterborne acrylic, which collects and seals leaks and holes, creating a very tightly sealed home. The U.S. Energy Information Administration states that 41% of all energy Americans use is consumed by residential and commercial buildings. Electricity production is the largest contributor to climate change in the U.S., creating 31% of total greenhouse gas emissions as per the Environmental Protection Agency. It really comes down to educated homebuyers demanding homes that function at high efficiency standards and contain materials that aren’t harmful for the residents or surrounding landscapes. Then the builders and developers will have to listen and change will come at a faster pace.

echnology is evolving at an unprecedented rate. Change is happening so rapidly that it’s hard to keep up with the newest of the new. This change and evolution is widely accepted amongst the public in certain sectors, but support is still lagging in the home-building sector. Comparing the auto industry, which has continually pushed forward in research and development in creating safer, more fuel-efficient vehicles that produce less harmful emissions, it’s time that the building industry strives for higher standards and makes changes to catch up with the current needs and wants of this generation. Even though it’s not widely implemented, there have been significant breakthroughs in building practices and technology. Some builders are beginning to utilize them to produce higher quality, extremely energy-efficient homes. A prime example of this is a High-Performance Home. These homes are raising the bar and setting a new precedent by providing a superior living experience, while performing on a highly energy-efficient level. The New Home Stakeholders Group defines a high-performance home by increased comfort, durability, better indoor air quality and lower energy use. This is achieved through a focus on a few main components, covering a broad spectrum ranging from types of insulation to alternative building methods while incorporating the most energy efficient appliances, lighting, heating and cooling systems. These homes are built to perform highly throughout their lifespan by incorporating building science methods to reduce mold, rot and other

I’m a woman who recently stopped talking with a guy I’d been seeing because, frankly, I didn’t find him intelligent enough. He is a good guy, but just a little dim for me. When I told my friends this was the reason I ended things, they said it was a bit snobbish. Does this make me an intellectual snob? I get that he has other good qualities, but I just don’t feel like they’re enough. —Nerd Seeking Nerd Love sometimes requires one to make sacrifices, but these shouldn’t include avoiding any words with more than two syllables. You aren’t alone in wanting a partner with smarts. In 1989, evolutionary psychologist David Buss and his colleagues did a massive study exploring mate preferences, including the desire for an intelligent partner, across 37 cultures (“on six continents and five islands”). Their participant group included Gujarati Indians, Estonians, mainland Chinese, Santa Catarina Brazilians, and South African Zulus. Using such a broad cross-cultural group (rather than just surveying the latest crop of American college undergrads) helps parse which traits might be evolved “human universals,” inherited by humans around the globe, irrespective of culture. Universal human traits -- for example, communicating with language and fear of snakes -- evolved to solve recurring problems faced by ancestral humans across continents and over generations, improving our chances of surviving, mating, and, most importantly, passing on our genes. Buss found that for some mate preferences, “cultures varied tremendously.” For example, the Dutch had a “whatevs!” attitude toward whether a partner is a virgin, while people in mainland China, India, and Iran placed a lot of importance on “chastity or virginity” in a partner. There were also strong sex differences in certain mate preferences -- even across cultures -- for example, with men (on average) “always ... valuing virginity more than women.” This might help a man avoid a hookup-erella and the evolutionary fail of unwittingly investing in a kid who’ll pass on some other dude’s genes. Of course, no woman has to worry her kid isn’t hers (especially not after 26 hours of screaming labor to push it out). There were also some universal mate preferences -- across cultures and in both sexes. Buss and his team found that intelligence (as well as kindness and health) were chart-toppers, traits desired by men and women across cultures from Z to Z: from the Zulus to the Croatians in Zagreb.

Granted, Buss did this research 30 years ago. Do his findings hold up? They do -- according to a survey of 14,000 people in 45 countries published in March of 2020 by evolutionary psychologist Daniel Conroy-Beam and his grad student Kathryn V. Walter, in concert with a huge international team of researchers. They write, “Consistent with Buss (1989), our results showed that health, kindness, and intelligence were highly valued by both men and women” around the world. Why might intelligence in a mate have evolved to be such a strong, culturally universal preference? In research exploring the role of men’s intelligence in heterosexual women’s Amy Alkon mate choices, psychologist Mark D. Prokosch and his colleagues explain that “greater intelligence is generally associated with success in a wide variety of circumstances,” most notably, workplace success, leading to higher income. “Selecting a more intelligent mate often provides women with better access to resources and parental investment for offspring.” Additionally, smartman genes are likely to lead to smarter children, making intelligence attractive as an “overall heritable... quality.” There’s a widely held myth that romantic partners need to be near doppelgangers -- have matching traits and interests -- to make it as a couple. This sells memberships to those dating sites promising to ferret out “points of compatibility.” However, research by psychologist Manon van Scheppingen finds that varying, complementing personality traits (such as outgoingness or conscientiousness) in partners often lead to greater relationship satisfaction. That said, it’s reasonable to want a partner with a level of smarts that’s a pretty good match with yours, because, well, a meeting of the minds is a little hard when one mind is tuned into Cold War documentaries while the other is all up in reruns of “Scooby-Doo.” Chances are the notion that you’re a “snob” for wanting an intellectually wellmatched partner is driven in part by others’ fear that they’ll be nixed by potential partners for traits beyond their control. There’s this lovely fiction that “what’s inside is all that matters.” A person’s heart and character are deeply important, but you can’t just decide to have the hots for some Mr. Libido Repellent because he feeds orphaned baby birds with an eyedropper while taking calls for a suicide hotline. Likewise, you can believe all people have innate value and treat them with respect and dignity and still not feel you’re compatible with a partner whose intelligence test results lead to a participation trophy.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I vote in American

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Yes, do let people see you sweat. At least for now, be forthright and revelatory. Let people witness your secret fire, your fierce tang, your salty tears, and your unhealed wounds. Hold nothing back as you give what you haven’t been able to give before. Be gleefully expressive as you unveil every truth, every question, every buried joy. Don’t be crude and insensitive, of course. Be as elegant and respectful as possible. But make it your priority to experiment with sacred vulnerability. Find out how far you can safely go as you strip away the disguises that have kept you out of touch with your full power.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Author Renata Adler expresses my own feelings when she writes, “Hardly anyone about whom I deeply care resembles anyone else I have ever met, or heard of, or read about in literature.” I bet if you’re honest, Taurus, you would say the same. It’s almost certainly the case that the people you regard as worthy of your love and interest are absolutely unique. In the sense that there are no other characters like them in the world, they are superstars and prodigies. I bring this to your attention because now is an excellent time to fully express your appreciation for their one-of-a-kind beauty—to honor and celebrate them for their entertainment value and precious influence and unparalleled blessings. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “If you cannot find an element of humor in something, you’re not taking it seriously enough,” writes author Ilyas Kassam. That’s a key thought for you to keep in mind during the coming weeks. Levity and joking will be necessities, not luxuries. Fun and amusement will be essential ingredients in the quest to make good decisions. You can’t afford to be solemn and stern, because allowing those states to dominate you would diminish your intelligence. Being playful—even in the face of challenges—will ensure your ultimate success.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Between 2008

CANCER (June 21-July 22): I’m hoping the

and 2017, Southern California had two sizable earthquakes: 5.5 and 5.1 on the Richter scale. But during the same period, the area had 1.8 million small quakes that were mostly too mild to be felt. The ground beneath the feet of the local people was shaking at the rate of once every three minutes. Metaphorically speaking, Capricorn, you’re now in a phase that resembles the mild shakes. There’s a lot of action going on beneath the surface, although not much of it is obvious. I think this is a good thing. The changes you’re shepherding are proceeding at a safe, gradual, well-integrated pace.

horoscopes I wrote for you in late August helped propel you into a higher level of commitment to the art of transformation. In any case, I suspect that you will have the chance, in the coming weeks, to go even further in your mastery of that art. To inspire you in your efforts, I’ll encourage you to at least temporarily adopt one or more of the nicknames in the following list: 1. Flux Luster 2. Fateful Fluctuator 3. Shift Virtuoso 4. Flow Maestro 5. Alteration Adept 6. Change Arranger 7. Mutability Savant 8. Transition Connoisseur

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): No American woman was allowed to earn a medical degree and practice as a physician until Aquarian-born Elizabeth Blackwell did it in 1849. It was an almost impossible feat, since the all-male college she attended undermined her mercilessly. Once she began her career a doctor, she constantly had to outwit men who made it difficult for her. Nevertheless, she persisted. Eventually, she helped create a medical school for women in England and made it possible for 476 women to practice medicine there. I propose that we make her your patron saint for now. May she inspire you to redouble your diligent pursuit of your big dream. Here’s your motto: “Nevertheless, I’m persisting.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Henry David Thoreau wrote, “I fear my expression may not be extravagant enough, may not wander far enough beyond the narrow limit of my daily experience, so as to be adequate to the truth of which I have been convinced.” You’ll be wise to have a similar fear, Pisces. According to my analysis, you can generate good fortune for yourself by transcending what you already know and think. Life is conspiring to nudge you and coax you into seeking experiences that will expand your understanding

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “When one is a stranger to oneself, then one is estranged from others, too,” wrote author Anne Morrow Lindbergh. “If one is out of touch with oneself, then one cannot touch others. Only when one is connected to one’s own core, is one connected to others.” In bringing these thoughts to your attention, Leo, I don’t mean to imply that you are out of touch with your deep self. Not at all. But in my view, all of us can benefit from getting into ever-closer communion with our deep selves. In the coming weeks, you especially need to work on that— and are likely to have extra success in doing so.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): My cosmic tipsters told me that you will be even smarter than usual in the coming weeks. As I scoured the heavenly maps, I detected signs that you have the potential to be a skilled code-cracker, riddle-decipherer, and solver of knotty problems and tricky dilemmas. That’s why I suggest you express gratitude to your beautiful brain, Virgo. Sing it sweet songs and tell it how much you love it and find out which foods you can eat to strengthen it even more. Now read Diane Ackerman’s description of the brain: “that shiny mound of being, that mouse-gray parliament of cells, that dream factory, that petit tyrant inside a ball of bone, that huddle of neurons calling all the plays, that little everywhere, that fickle pleasuredome.”


Gentle, Effective Health Care I strongly believe in each person’s ability to discover their full health potential.

but I approve of vanity,” said fashion writer Diana Vreeland. Here’s how I interpret that: People who care mostly for their own feelings and welfare, and who believe they’re more important than everyone else, are boring and repellent. But those who enjoy looking their best and expressing their unique beauty may do so out of a desire to share their gifts with the world. Their motivation might be artistry and generosity, not self-centeredness. In accordance with cosmic potentials, Scorpio, I invite you to elude the temptations of narcissism as you explore benevolent forms of vanity.

nobody sings the word ‘hunger’ like I do,” testified Aries chanteuse Billie Holiday. She wasn’t suggesting that she had a stylish way of crooning about fine dining. Rather, she meant “hunger” in the sense of the longing for life’s poignant richness. Her genius-level ability to express such beauty was due in part to her skillful vocal technique, but also because she was a master of cultivating soulful emotions. Your assignment in the coming weeks, Aries, is to refine and deepen your own hunger.

But now I’m a staunch advocate for the Democrats. Why? Because Republicans are so thoroughly under the curse of the nasty, cruel, toxic person known as Donald Trump. I’m convinced that it’s crucial for our country’s well-being that Democrats achieve total victory in the upcoming election. In accordance with astrological omens, I urge you to do your personal equivalent of what I’ve done: Unambiguously align yourself with influences that represent your highest, noblest values. Take a sacred stand not just for yourself, but also in behalf of everything you love.

A focus on rare or unique spirits for Bend distillery turns to an agave-based spirit By Nicole Vulcan


Crater Lake Spirits


Tokyo Pro Shred Nora Beck

rater Lake Spirits is adding an entirely new flavor profile to its lineup of spirits—but don’t call it tequila. The Bend-based spirits maker is rolling out the next in its Rare Spirits Collection, this time featuring a product made from agave. The Agave Spirit Reposado will taste like a tequila—but since the spirit was aged in Oregon, rather than made entirely in Mexico, Crater Lake can’t technically call the spirit a tequila. Mexican authorities heavily regulate the use of the term “tequila” to define blue agave spirits made primarily in the state of Jalisco—though some other Mexican states also have limited authority to use the term on products made in those states, too. It’s the same approach used by French authorities to regulate the term “champagne,” to exclude any sparkling white wine not made in the Champagne region of France. “The spirit was sourced from a small distillery in Mexico several years ago and was aged in used Crater Lake Reserve Rye Whiskey barrels for eight months,” said Alan Dietrich, CEO of Crater Lake Spirits. “The Rare Reposado is a 100% blue agave spirit distilled in Mexico. It actually conforms to the definition of tequila, but because we aged it here in Bend, we cannot legally call it this. This is a very rare, unique interpretation of the style.” The bottles were released Oct. 14 and available for $34.95 in the tasting rooms in downtown Bend and in Tumalo. Both spaces have been keeping regular hours—with social distancing and other safety protocols in place, of course. The first release in the company’s Rare Spirits collection was a Barley Whiskey, a five-year malted barley whiskey released earlier this past summer and available only in Crater Lake Spirits’ two tasting rooms. The company expects to release more additions to its Rare Spirits collection in the coming year.  Crater Lake Spirits

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

Enjoy this rare spirit; just don't call it tequila.
