On the Cover: “Satellite Sisters” by Mark Rogers.
Next Tuesday evening, one week from the date I’m writing this, my team and I will be spending one long night watching returns and covering what we can around the election, before our next issue goes to press at midnight that night. I don’t think I’m the only one who’s more than ready to see this election season behind us—but before the dust settles, we’ll be ready to cover the ups and downs. (For a recap of our endorsements, see page 9.) Our website, bendsource.com, and our social media channels @sourceweekly will be the places we’ll update any information we gather from election night, and we invite you to visit us there to keep up with the latest. Elections are always important—and this time around, when so much focus has been placed on the presidential race, we hope you’ve taken a similar amount of time learning about the local candidates and measures that will very directly impact your lives. The vitriol around the presidential race is real—but it never stops surprising us how relatively little energy is expended by the public in weighing in on the other races. We look forward to the inevitable challenges and important conversations that are going to emerge over the next several weeks. May we all do our best to maintain level heads as our political future unfolds.
OPINION Revising Oregon’s School Reopening Metrics Couldn’t Come Soon Enough WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / OCTOBER 29, 2020 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE
Why now? As Deschutes County’s population has more than doubled, library use has significantly increased—and our libraries have not expanded since the 1990s. The library has not asked for a new bond initiative for 23 years and has paid off all tax debt. Now is the time to upgrade all libraries across the county! Our libraries were built before technology needs were considered, and library customers now need modern resources and spaces.
What will a YES vote support? We love our neighborhood libraries, and they all need upgrades! Modern technology, resources and more spaces will be added to our East Bend, Downtown Bend, Sisters, La Pine and Sunriver locations. A centrally-located hub for processing and distribution so books and resources will be available faster for the entire county! A new Central Library with a dynamic, interactive Children’s Discovery Center for all families in Deschutes County to enjoy.

If there’s any topic more controversial and ripe for public debate than the current presidential election, it most certainly is the topic of reopening schools. Throughout 2020, we’ve followed the guidance and edicts issued from Oregon’s leadership around the many facets of the pandemic— but as we continue to see students and their families in Central Oregon suffer the realities of continuing online distance learning into seeming perpetuity, it’s time to make a change. As we look around at neighboring states and at the ongoing discussion around reopening schools, it’s hard to avoid the conclusion that it’s time for the governor to finally, as she has discussed, revise the metrics for reopening schools. Gov. Kate Brown announced on Oct. 6 that she would be revisiting these metrics, but we have yet to see the results of that assessment. In the meantime, here in Bend, as elsewhere, there is an increasingly bipartisan effort to relax some of the stringent metrics that, by many estimations, will have local kids essentially lose an entire year of quality instruction. It’s no secret that Oregon has one of the worst on-time graduation rates in the nation. This has been an abysmal statistic that we have never been willing to accept— and one of the reasons we supported the Student Success Act last year. We held out in hope that this was a program that could reverse that trend. The current and ongoing lockdown of public schools is only exacerbating this already bad situation. Now, on top of the many low-income and at-risk students whose home situations may be hindering their ability to learn under the Comprehensive Distance Learning model, previously motivated and high-performing students are losing motivation and focus and are suffering adverse mental health effects. Nothing has revealed the far-reaching value of public education more than this virus. Schools are not just places of learning, but places of sanctuary for students across the economic spectrum, providing a broad array of services that go well beyond reading writing and ‘rithmetic. Most educators place a high value on identifying students’ unique learning styles. Students with some of those learning styles, such as visual and auditory learners, may do well learning through a computer screen. Others, such as those who learn best through interpersonal interaction or through kinesthetic means, are left out in the cold in this world of digital instruction. Just as students have unique learning styles and unique needs, so, too, do individual school districts across Oregon. This is exemplified in the varying guidance the
state offers for small rural counties versus higher-population areas. People in Central Oregon talk often of “local control” and “being different than the Portland metro.” In this instance, we couldn’t agree more. Individual districts should have an opportunity to decide on and execute plans that meet the needs of their communities. This has been loudly shared over the past several weeks by everyone from individual district superintendents to growing numbers of grassroots groups. In an opinion piece in the Salem Statesman Journal on Oct. 16, written by the founder of the Facebook Group, “Let Oregon Learn!”, the author points out that while no one under 18 has yet died from this virus in Oregon, several teens committed suicide over the previous several weeks. The damage being wrought from keeping all kids isolated—not to mention those for whom school is a literal lifeline for food, comfort, friendship and overall social/emotional support—now appears to be more significant than the virus itself. It is time for Oregon’s schools to adopt a strategy of “learning to live with the virus,” rather than living in fear of a single case of transmission. One need only look at Washington state for a nearby example of how this could be done differently. On Oct. 16, the Washington State Department of Health released newer “decision tree” guidance around how school districts can best decide whether to reopen. Not only does the guidance give individual districts the opportunity to decide what’s best for students in their communities, but it also includes metrics that allow reopening even while there is double the number of cases that Oregon’s current metrics dictate. Every minute that Oregon waits to revise its own metrics, students in our state fall further and further behind. We shudder to think what Oregon’s graduation rate will look like after this school year. We realize that some will disagree with us—and for those who do, there’s a very simple and existing structure in place: Oregon’s online learning options are more robust than ever, and there’s nothing stopping those families from keeping their kids enrolled in those types of programs. However, it is time to place our full faith in our local educators and to let them decide how and when to reopen schools. Too many Central Oregon kids are suffering while we wait for state guidance regarding when that should happen.
GUEST COMMENTARY: WILL LATINO VOTERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN CENTRAL OREGON?
Latino voters make up a small, but significant sliver of the electorate in Oregon – only 7.7 percent of total registered voters, according to the Pew Research Center. Although their numbers may be smaller in Central Oregon, there is much at stake for Latinos in the 2020 election. “We’re very much a mixed-status family community,” said former state senate candidate Greg Delgado. Many Latino citizens in Central Oregon have immigrant parents, grandparents, or siblings who are not eligible to vote. So it’s up to voting members to represent their family’s priorities. Hostile expressions toward Latinos have increased over the past four years, noted Milagros Aparicio, client services manager for the Latino Community Association in Bend. This year, she has helped new citizens, especially those who are older, register to vote online. Along with many of her clients, Aparicio hopes for a new administration that can begin to reverse “an unhealthy emotional environment for most of our (Latino) community.” It’s difficult to determine how many of the 20,512 Latinos who live in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties can cast a ballot. About three-fourths were born in the U.S., but more than a third are youth under 18, according to U.S. Census estimates for 2018. An unknown number of naturalized citizens may also vote. LCA sponsors citizenship classes and exam tutoring for foreign-born residents and has graduated 141 people since 2015. Those who became citizens can join the pool of eligible voters. Oscar González oversees these classes as LCA’s empowerment programs manager. Instructors show students how to complete a ballot and emphasize that “your voice, like everyone else’s, counts,” he said. Joanne Mina, LCA’s volunteer coordinator, is recruiting people to make calls to registered voters and encourage them to turn in their ballots. While many of us are riveted to the presidential contest, state and local races are vital to Josh Mondragón, a local college student majoring in government. He believes the federal government has overstepped its boundaries. “Allow (elected officials) to run their state and local governments as they see fit,” said Mondragón, a political independent. Aparicio would like a closer relationship with local elected officials “so they can

become educated about our barriers and needs,” she said. “Not everybody takes us into consideration when making the laws.” Delgado sees two trends: “We’re seeing more women and people of color stepping up to run for office,” he said. But even disenfranchised communities are becoming more active politically on issues of environment, immigration, health care, and education. For Delgado, it’s important “that we make politics a part of our family fabric, and engage in healthy dialogue and respect for each other when we discuss the issues.” González hopes that more young Latinos will vote in this election and begin shifting the political landscape in the area. “When you choose not to participate … you acquiesce to the status quo,” he said. —Denise Holley is the research and communications assistant for the Latino Community Association
VOTE FOR EMERSON LEVY
My name is Emerson Levy and I am a mom, an attorney, and running to be your State Representative in House District 53. In the remaining days of the campaign, I want to share with you my plans and goals for the future. I’ve run a campaign that I am proud of: an issues-based campaign that seeks to resolve and improve the issues that affect your everyday life, whether you are a Republican, Independent, or a Democrat. There are big differences between myself and my opponent when it comes to how we want to represent the citizens of HD53. I have put forward serious plans for the future that are inclusive and will build a coalition of strong leaders in Central Oregon. My opponent has narrowly aligned himself with groups that commingle with the alt-right and the anti-vaxxer movement, only causing further divide. He has not been accessible to his constituents, nor made any attempt to connect with the community outside of his group of niche issue lobbyists and political organizations. Additionally, my opponent is endorsed by Oregon Right to Life. I am endorsed by Planned Parenthood, NARAL and Basic Rights Oregon. I’ll work on behalf of all my fellow Central Oregonians focusing on: Job Growth, Small Business Support, Childcare, School Safety, Affordable Housing, and strong Environmental Policies. Please check out my website where I discuss policy in detail: emersonvotes.com. I am ready to go to Salem. I am ready to go to work, for everyone. —Emerson Levy
HENDERSON: A THOUGHTFUL LEADER
I’m writing this letter in response to the Source Weekly’s endorsement of Phil Chang. The article talks about my vision for Deschutes County being “flawed.” I dispute that. I fight for Central Oregonian values, those of many Deschutes County residents. It claims I want “sprawl housing” around the county. My vision is not that. It’s to use land which isn’t useful for farming or natural habitat to be used for housing where it makes

sense. Oregon’s 50-year-old restrictive land use system is flawed and only benefits the wealthy. Chang believes in a “triplex on every block” and compact living. I don’t. The last UGB expansion for Bend was approved four years ago. No homes have been built on the land added. Meanwhile housing prices nearly doubled. To clarify another point, the County Commission did not oppose mental health experts in schools. We tabled a budget proposal for $170,000 growing to $230,000 over three years with unclear planning. We will revisit this proposal when the economy is more stable. The past four years I led efforts twice to cut our county property tax rates, helped secure $60 million from the Federal government to improve roads in the North end of Bend, led the effort to donate land for the Veterans Village in Bend, led the effort to create affordable homes in Skyline Village and helped lead our County through the unprecedented challenges of Covid-19 focusing on public safety and economic reopening. I will continue to be a thoughtful leader. —Phil Henderson
VOTE FOR MEGAN PERKINS
It is unfortunate that the Source editorial board has endorsed Chris Piper—a Bend City Council candidate who has received $92,000 in campaign contributions from the Central Oregon Builders Association, Central Oregon Association of Realtors, and Bend Chamber of Commerce PACs (political action committees). These powerful special interest PACs have consistently tried to buy Council seats with obscene amounts of money. They don’t spend this kind of money for nothing. It is an attempt to purchase influence. In 2018 these special interests gave two City Council candidates about $141,000 in
contributions. After voters wisely rejected both candidates, representatives of these three organizations relentlessly pushed Piper from virtual obscurity into a vacant Council seat. It was largely behind the scenes and took many by surprise. That’s the way special interests work. Megan Perkins is the better choice for City Council Position #3. Megan is not beholden to special interests. She has run a strong grassroots campaign fueled by the people power of voters who recognize her as one of them, not a representative of the powerful. She will speak up for Bend residents who are too often left out of the process and work hard to make sure that our city’s progress is shared by all. Go to meganforbend.com and learn for yourselves why so many Bend residents support Megan Perkins for Position #3 on the Bend City Council. And then vote for her. Bend will be better for it. —Michael Funke

If you’ve tried to buy building materials lately, you might have encountered unwelcome surprises. What’s driving price hikes and back orders for construction supplies in Central Oregon? By K.M. Collins Shuffling a pallet of tile around for a kitchen remodel, Bend Craftsmen Company Owner Hank Hill remarks on the state of the industry. Most quality builders in the region are booking six months out, at least, and that’s not to mention the costs of the materials those builders will use. Both issues can be tracked at least in part to COVID-19, international tariffs and a summer of wildfires—all which mean building new homes is only getting more expensive. “Times are the busiest a lot of us have ever seen. Material prices have been fluctuating a lot and some of my preferred vendors, especially for appliances and tile, have seen significant back orders and delays,” Hill said. Damon Runberg, Regional economist for Oregon’s Employment Department, supports Hill’s observations with hard numbers. In late August, during a Central Oregon Builders Association presentation around COVID-19’s impacts on the industry, Runberg noted that the only Central Oregon sector to see gains is construction, growing at a rate of 2.8% in 2020. Evan Olsen, lumber salesman at Parr Lumber, said a backlog for lumber supplies started a few months after COVID regulations went into place. Mills were shut down in both Oregon and Washington. Washington’s construction work also ceased, while Oregon’s was deemed essential and continued. This ate up supplies which were on site or on sales floors. When the mills in both states, and construction in Washington came back online, supplies were gone. “Mid-summer,” Olsen explains, “we were two months back ordered for any new material, and sheet goods were triple the cost of pre-COVID prices.” In
particular, stud material and composite decking, both in high demand preCOVID, were difficult to obtain, though have now rebounded somewhat. Construction supplies are still in high demand even in bigger cities closer to shipping routes. Aaron Brent-Fulps, owner of ABF Construction, reports during a visit to Home Depot in North Portland in early October, plywood that normally cost $16 a sheet was selling for $46. Olsen of Parr Lumber said cedar is the hardest to secure—an issue traced to massive mill closures in Canada, and trade tariffs. “Softwood lumber import tariffs of around 21% were levied onto Canada last year. Those tariffs are restructuring the entire lumber global supply chain, the National Association of Home Builders told MarketWatch. That then incentivizes U.S. buyers to import from overseas rather than ship lumber across the Canadian border,” commented Robert Dalheim in a September article in Woodworking Network, an online resource. Ryan Jennings, operations director for Redmond-based Hayden Homes said during the COBA presentation that there’s been an 80% uptick in costs since April. At that time, 2x4s or narrow lumber purchased in bulk cost $300 per 1,000 square feet. As of late August, that rocketed to $835 per 1,000 square feet. Jennings notes this hike adds thousands of dollars to the price tags of new builds and exacerbates the ongoing housing crisis. This translates to an increase of about $16,000 for the typical new single-family home and raises the cost of a typical apartment by $6,000, estimated an October article in “Builder” magazine. Prices for homes in Central

Oregon have already skyrocketed during the pandemic, setting multiple records for median prices. Jennings said in March, Oregon mills laid off around 30% of staff. As the economy got moving again, people were unable to return to the mills or weren’t rehired. This, on top of distancing regulations which affected the number of people on any given work shift, combined for multiple wrenches in production. As a result, mills are no longer selling to smaller companies or wholesalers directly, he said. Meanwhile, it’s been challenging to find larger appliances at local suppliers—further straining builders’ budgets and timelines. Olsen is anticipating another peak in lumber demand, with the looming rollout of new Occupational Health and Safety Administration guidelines on Nov. 1, and the toll wrought from rebuilding infrastructure damaged or destroyed during Oregon’s summer fires.
Micro-Units Come to Bend
Consumer due diligence In a high-demand building climate such as the one in Central Oregon, Karna Gustafson, vice president of government affairs and legal counsel for COBA, encourages consumers to check that their contractor has a Construction Contractors Board license. “Especially post this summer’s wildfires, there is serious concern that flyby-night contractors will have ample opportunity to take advantage,” she said. Hill, the builder, recommends that people looking to work with a builder establish a “cost-plus” format, or to include contingencies in contracts with contractors in order to cover unexpected extra costs. “If a contractor prepares a proposal now, but the project starts in six to 12 months, it can be wise for both parties to have another assessment of pricing and cost prior to construction commencing to re-evaluate.” William Hayes Noel
Single-room-occupancy buildings are now permittable in higher-density areas in the city By Laurel Brauns
ast week, the Bend City Council unanimously voted in favor of allowing micro-unit housing as one alternative to address the city’s housing crisis. Micro-units are small apartments or dorms that range between 150 and 400 square feet, according to City documents, with some spaces offering a communal living space and a kitchen. Other cities like Seattle and Portland have embraced single-room-occupancy living as a way to address the shortage of affordable housing. During a public hearing on Oct. 7,
several people spoke in favor of SROs and said they could work well for remote workers looking for new housing, recent college grads and people without homes trying to transition into a more permanent situation. Several amendments were added to the original code after the proposal was presented to the Planning Commission last month. Originally, SROs would have been permitted in all residential areas of Bend. Melanie Kebler, who’s running for the Council’s position 1 seat, said some members of the Neighborhood Leadership Association pressured the Planning

BLM, el departamento de policía y una brigada a favor de Trump se enfrentaron hace dos semanas. Ahora la policía quiere que muchos de los participantes sean acusados por delitos
Hasta 22 personas pueden ser acusadas luego de haber estado presentes en dos manifestaciones rivales en el vecindario del parque Pilot Butte el día 3 de octubre. John Hummel, el fiscal del distrito del condado Deschutes dijo que anunciará su decisión sobre los cargos por medio de una conferencia de prensa a finales de esta semana. Los grupos que se enfrentaron a principios de este mes se reunieron ante todo
en respuesta al primer debate presidencial del 29 de septiembre, cuando el moderador Chris Wallace le pregunto durante el debate al presidente Donald Trump si estaría dispuesto a ordenarles a los Proud Boys y a otros defensores de la supremacía de raza blanca que se retirarán. Al contrario, el mensaje que envió Trump a los Proud Boys fue “retrocedan y estén preparados” Kerstin Arias, co-fundadora de Central Oregon Diversity Project le dijo a the Source que los activistas de Black Lives Matter (BLM) estaban furiosos con la policía por no haber arrestado a un hombre que mostro un arma, así como otros manifestantes a favor de Trump quienes estaban bebiendo cerveza en el parque antes de alejarse del lugar en sus camionetas. Varios manifestantes a favor de BLM se colocaron enfrente de la patrulla que estaba a punto de retirarse y gritaron e insultaron a la policía exigiendo así respuestas. Al día siguiente, COPK y otros grupos planearon una manifestación fuera de la estación de policía de Bend para presentar denuncias en contra de la policía que estuvo un día antes en Pilot Butte. Un grupo de alrededor de 100 personas bloqueó brevemente el traficó sobre la carretera 20, cerca de la estación de policía. Si bien
tenían muchas denuncias, una persona acuso a Cpl. Jeff Frickley de sofocar a un manifestante mientras intentaba hacerla a un lado en medio una pelea. El martes 20 de octubre, el departamento de policía de Bend publico un comunicado anunciando que terminó su investigación en relación al evento sucedido en Pilot Butte el 3 de Octubre y a la manifestación en la estación de policía en Bend el 4 de octubre. Conforme al comunicado, los inspectores del DPB pasaron mas de 400 horas revisando las imágenes de celular y de otras evidencias. El DPB dijo que 22 personas deberían ser acusadas por delitos incluyendo el interferir con la policía, robo, asalto, alteración del orden público, uso indebido de un arma, uso de gas pimienta y un arma y por participar en una revuelta. Mientras que es común que el DPB envié un comunicado de prensa al público para anunciar presuntos delitos, el señalar cargos delictivos a través de un comunicado es nuevo. Hummel comento a the Source, “Durante los seis años que llevo en el cargo nunca he visto que el departamento de policía informe al publico que cargos piensan que debería presentar. Y creo que nunca antes de mi mandato haya pasado”

a semana pasada, el consejo municipal de la ciudad de Bend votó por unanimidad a favor de permitir micro-unidades habitacionales (SORs) como una alternativa para combatir la crisis de vivienda de la ciudad. Las micro-unidades son departamentos pequeños o dormitorios que miden entre 150 y 400 pies cuadrados, de acuerdo con los documentos de la ciudad, con algunas viviendas que ofrecen un espacio de convivencia común y una cocina. Otras ciudades como Seattle y Portland han adoptado viviendas con ocupación de una habitación individual como la forma de combatir la escasez de viviendas accesibles. Durante una audiencia pública el 7 de octubre, varias personas hablaron a favor de SROs y dijeron que podrían ser buenas para los trabajadores remotos que buscan una nueva vivienda, para los recién graduados universitarios y para las personas sin hogar que intentan pasar a una situación más estable. Varias enmiendas se agregaron al código original después de haber sido presentada la propuesta a la comisión de planeación el mes pasado.

Plans for a Managed Camp at Juniper Ridge Pressure from BNSF Railway inspires City to establish a temporary campsite
City of Bend
By Laurel Brauns
WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / OCTOBER 29, 2020 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE
fter years of controversy at Juniper Ridge, the City of Bend plans to build an RV park and campground for people without homes on the property within a few months. The 1,500-acre City-owned property in northeast Bend was primarily designated for industrial development. But only a few new businesses have moved into the area over the last decade and the site has instead become a camping spot for more than 100 people without permanent shelter. Last year, the City cleared the homeless camping site at Juniper Ridge in order to build a sewer pipe. During the Oct. 21 Bend City Council meeting, city staff presented plans to put a new 6-acre managed camp off an extension of Cooley Road, near the site of a future public works building, and not far from where the campers lived before the sewer pipe project. The City is currently assembling an Emergency Homelessness Task Force to help coordinate the management of the camp between the City, Deschutes County, neighborhood leaders and nonprofits, according to a City press release. Last year, after the campers were forced off the property near Cooley Road, some of them moved north and closer to a series of railroad crossings, where two vehicles got stuck on the tracks during separate incidents. One

of the cars caused a fire and hundreds of evacuations in nearby neighborhoods this summer, according to Jon Skidmore, assistant city manager. BNSF Railway informed the City that it wasn’t doing a good job managing the crossings on City property and so the railroad might revoke the City’s main access point to Juniper Ridge on the north end of the property. Eventually, the City may install lockable swinging gates near the tracks to help address the issue, Skidmore said. But before the City moves forward with the gates, it must help move some
of the campers away from the north end of the property near the tracks. The City wants to build the new site as soon as possible and maintain it for the next couple of years in order to avoid conflict with BNSF. Housing advocacy groups such as the Central Oregon Homeless Leadership Coalition have been lobbying the City for years to help fund and support the establishment of a legal camp on City-owned land. Eventually, the City wants to build a more permanent campground and RV park at Juniper Ridge. City Councilor Barb Campbell has
been pushing for an established camp for years. “I couldn’t be happier about this,” she said at the Oct. 21 meeting. “It’s about time we try to treat people more humanely.” Some of the land on Juniper Ridge may be rezoned for residential development in the coming years. According to the Homeless Leadership Coalition’s point-in-time count, 968 people are without shelter in Central Oregon in 2020, including 203 children under the age of 18. This increased 10% since last year. Courtney Christenson
After the Brawl at Pilot Butte
Black Lives Matter protesters, Bend PD and a proTrump brigade clashed two weeks ago. Now local police want many participants charged with crimes By Laurel Brauns
p to 22 people may be charged in the wake of two competing demonstrations at Pilot Butte Neighborhood Park on Oct. 3. Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel said he’ll announce his decision on the charges at a press conference later this week. The groups that clashed earlier this month gathered primarily in response to the first presidential debate Sept. 29, when moderator Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump during the debate if he would be willing to denounce the Proud Boys and other white supremacist hate groups. Instead, Trump’s message to the Proud Boys was to “stand back and stand by.” Kerstin Arias, co-founder of the Central Oregon Diversity Project, told the
Source that Black Lives Matter activists were furious with the police for not arresting a man who brandished a gun, as well as other pro-Trump demonstrators who were drinking beer in the park before leaving in their trucks. A number of BLM protesters stood in front of a police car that was about to leave and yelled and swore at the police, demanding answers. The next day, COPK and other groups planned a demonstration outside of the Bend Police station in order to file complaints against the police who were at Pilot Butte the day before. The crowd of around 100 people briefly blocked traffic on Hwy. 20 near the station. While they had many complaints, one accused Cpl. Jeff Frickey of choking a protester while trying to move her in

the midst of a fight. On Tuesday, Oct. 20, the Bend Police department released a statement announcing that it completed its investigation into the Pilot Butte event on Oct. 3 and the Bend Police station demonstration on Oct. 4. BPD investigators spent more than 400 hours reviewing cell footage and other forms of evidence, according to the release. BPD said that 22 people should be charged with violations including interfering with police, theft, assault, disorderly conduct, unlawful use of a stun
gun, mace and a weapon, and participating in a riot. While it is traditional BPD practice to send out press releases to the public to announce alleged crimes, suggesting criminal charges through a statement is new. “During my six years in office I’ve never seen the police department inform the public as to what charges they think I should file,” Hummel told the Source. “And I don’t think it ever happened before my tenure in office.”

A few creative ideas that may just save your neighborhood Halloween By Nicole Vulcan
So, those on the fence about handing out candy through a 6-foot PVC “broom” or through other socially distanced methods can be fairly certain it’s not going to cause a super-spreader Halloween event.
alloween is an ideal holiday for creative escapists. Becoming someone else by way of an amalgam of makeup, costume wizardry and ideally, some well-devised back story and character development? Clutch. But then, enter COVID and Halloween; images of a gang of tiny hands inside the same candy bowl seeming, if not totally off-limits, then certainly strange to witness in this year of widespread social distancing. With warmer temps on tap for Halloween weekend, and outside activities in which one can maintain “6 feet of distance from others” still allowed, I set about to find ways to spread the spooky joy of Halloween in my neighborhood. Here’s how I (and some others) got creative, piqued the interest of the neighbors and tried to save Halloween. And if you’re reading this early enough in the week this paper hit stands, you could do the same.
Candy delivery service
The Tunnel of Doom
A PVC pipe with a broom head affixed to the end makes for a simple, socially distant candy-delivery device.
In northeast Bend, Mike Manser is putting What we know about COVID’s forth a solid COVID-era effort to share the Halspread on surfaces loween love. Manser assembled a candy delivery vessel made from a piece of PVC pipe, measuring the required 6 feet or more, affixed to his doorway.

Having recently purchased my first home in Bend, bought during the height of angst around the pandemic, I felt it was my civic duty to 1. Vote in this election and 2., Create a spectacle of Halloween fun that could be enjoyed by neighbor kids in this time of isolation. Inviting kids into the house or garage to walk through an indoor haunted house was the wrong move—so my teen and I opted to build a giant monstrosity of black plastic and purple lighting in the front yard. If only my own teen and her friends enjoy it, it’s been 100% worth it. We started with a basic structure, gleaning a wooden arbor headed for the dump from a local Facebook gardening group to serve as the “doorway.” A big tent with openings on both ends or one of those garage-style enclosures could easily suffice, too. From the arbor we affixed, with the help of a LOT of zip ties, several pieces of PVC pipe from the arbor to the eaves of the house. Over top we laid a giant piece of black plastic sheeting (to be used later to kill the abundant crab grass in the back yard) and affixed it with clamps to the PVC, achieving a tunnel-like look—while also mystifying the neighbors about what type of “home improvement” I may be doing in the midst of freezing temps. We used sheets to separate the tunnel into three “rooms,” each with its own spooky theme. Bloodied Barbies and jungle grass, gleaned from my teen daughter’s collection and from willow branches in the yard, became the Jungle of Doom room. Moving farther into the tunnel is a room with a life-size Grim Reaper, where leaves fall down on the visitor. And finally, in the third room, a maze of glow sticks seems fairly innocuous, until a hand (a fake one, on another piece of PVC pipe) reaches in to poke at the visitor. All of this is set to a soundtrack of scary sounds gleaned from YouTube. All told, the costs have amounted to buying the giant piece of plastic, which will have a second life later on. We placed high value on gathering items from around the house, and we already have a collection of costumes and masks and scary stuff that punches higher than a two-person household should, so

spending a lot of money wasn’t necessary. Then again, the Halloween stores are rife with plenty of spooks and goblins and other stuff that could make your scare tunnel waaaayyy better than ours. But when Halloween night comes and the neighborhood tweens and teens are running in haste from the invisible PVCpipe hand that tries to clutch them in the darkness, I’m guessing they won’t care much about the costs, or lack thereof. Headstones crafted from cardboard invite the neighborhood kids to go They’ll just be glad someone through on Halloween night—if they dare. made a little effort to save Halloween.

We Asked Locals, What Are Your Plans for Halloween? In a COVID-era year, it’s a scarily mellow time for many Hunter Thompson
Compiled By Jess McComb
“I’m most likely going to select a few friends who have been socially distancing so I can still have some fun but not endanger myself and others in the process.”
Annalise Ramsthel “Our baby is only a few months old and we’ve been trying to keep his social circle small, so we will not be trick or treating. But we plan on dressing him up and taking a photo for memories. He’s going to be Bob Ross!”
Derik Clinton “I live in an apartment so I will not be participating in handing out candy, but I will be attending a costume party with some friends.”
Jessica, Mother of two “We do not have any plans at the moment. We’re not sure what everyone’s doing. We may go trick or treating—we just haven’t made a plan to do so yet.”

New Lady Leader in Tech
Central Oregon Community College promotes Laura Boehme to chief information officer By Laurel Brauns Central Oregon Community College
Laura Boehme has worked at Central Oregon Community College since 2010 and was recently promoted to chief technology officer.
“The Feminine Revolution,” the author encourages her readers to embrace qualities within themselves that have traditionally been associated with women, including empathy, caregiving, col-
“Oftentimes woman leaders bring something different to an organization… including care and discernment and awareness.” —LAURA BOEHME, CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER FOR COCC
chini, for giving her a chance. She was the only woman who interviewed for the position, she said. Overall, Boehme said she sees her new role as an opportunity to use her feminine leadership style. Promoting stereotypically female qualities is a growing trend in the U.S. In a 2018 book by Amy Stanton called
laboration and intuition. These were all characteristics Boehme used to describe her management approach during her interview with the Source. Stanton writes that these traits have often gone unrecognized in traditional workplace culture compared to masculine qualities such as being direct, competitive and assertive.
A nurturing or “mothering” approach in an organization can create a culture of care and support that inspires employees to fulfill their potential, Stanton writes. Leaders expressing empathy give people space to feel heard and understood and to overcome their shortfalls, she said. Creating an atmosphere of collaboration brings a diversity of skills to the table and helps companies grow in creative directions. This contrasts with a stereotypically masculine approach, which is more focused on personal achievement, Stanton said. “Oftentimes women leaders bring something different to an organization… including care and discernment and awareness,” Boehme said. “Here at COCC, we’ve had two female presidents and the institution is thriving.” Boehme explained that COCC’s IT department is charged with managing the student help desk, networking various systems within the college,
providing data services and storage and setting strategies and goals to make sure it is delivering the technology that students and instructors need to be successful. It also provides internships and work-study opportunities for students. The IT department also manages the technology instructors use to deliver the content for their classes: COCC uses the Blackboard platform. Boehme said her department embraces the use of the school’s social media accounts on YouTube and Facebook to provide students with updates and how-to videos. COCC is open for some in-person and hybrid instruction this fall and plans to continue that arrangement into the winter. Boehme said one of the biggest issues students have reported since the pandemic is difficulty accessing WiFi off campus. Both instructors and students have also had difficulty obtaining laptops and other equipment to learn and teach from home, she said.
VOLUME 24 ISSUE 37 / OCTOBER 29, 2020 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
n September, Central Oregon Community College hired its first female chief information officer, Laura Boehme. She had previously served as the chief human resources officer for the college and will continue to work in both roles. She’s also a business instructor. The COCC Information Technology Services Department employs only three other women besides Boehme out of a staff of 25. Only 18% of large corporations in the U.S. have female chief information officers, according to The Wall Street Journal. According to the Women in IT Global Initiative, only 9% of companies worldwide employ female IT executives. Boehme told the Source that while she’s developed a great deal of technical expertise, her role as a leader and a manager requires a different set of skills. Some people may view her approach as embodying more stereotypically female traits, she said. “When I started the job, here is what I truly believed: They did not need another technician, they needed someone to care about them,” Boehme said. “I can read people; I know what they need. I said, ‘Hey team, we’re all going to work together.’” Boehme has had a career in academia for most of her life.

The Garlic Equation
The four seasons of one beautiful plant— which starts with planting it right about now
By Ari Levaux

Garlic in the ground now is the next best thing to garlic in your tummy.
bulb. Any more than that and the cloves are too tiny. X = Y (Z − 1). That’s it. That’s my equation. We solve it for X, the number of bulbs you should buy, where Y is the number of bulbs you wish to eat per year, and Z equals the average number of cloves per bulb. I grow Romanian Red, which averages about five large cloves per bulb, so Z = 5. I go through a bulb a day, so Y = 365. Solving for X we get 91.25 bulbs of garlic, which I’ll break down into 456 cloves that I’ll plant, each one of which will grow into a bulb. I will eat about 365 of those, which leaves me 91 bulbs to plant next year. The ideal window for planting is between Halloween and Thanksgiving. Too early and the cloves will start to grow too much, and risk being frozen out by winter. Too late and the ground will be frozen and you won’t get anything in. Plant your cloves about 6 inches apart in soft, fluffy soil. The scab side, from which the roots will sprout, goes down, with an inch of dirt remaining between the upper tip of the garlic clove and the surface of the earth. After it’s all planted and raked in, mulch the garlic with small deciduous leaves or straw (not hay, which has seeds). This layer will help insulate the dormant garlic through the winter and regulate its temperature and moisture level when spring finally arrives. Leaves are probably superior because they will decompose, increasing the microbial activity on the soil surface, which improves fertility. But broad leaves like maple can form a mat
that can be difficult for the young garlic sprouts to penetrate in spring, so you will need to pull them off in March so the garlic can make it up. After planting, give it a good soak — or simply plant it before a soaking rain. The moisture will activate the cloves to start sending out roots, in preparation for the spring growth spurt. But they don’t need to do much. The primary job of those cloves is to wait out the winter, hibernating, so they can go ballistic in spring. Not long after, you will be using your homegrown garlic in dishes like this.
Pasta with Garlic
Truly, every single pasta dish in the world could be called pasta with garlic, because garlicking the pasta should be the first move in pretty much any proper pasta dish. For any Italian-style noodles you may want to toss in grated Parmesan cheese with the garlic. 1 pound pasta 2 cloves garlic, pressed or similarly macerated ¼ cup olive oil Optional: grated hard cheese like Parmesan Boil the pasta and drain. Rinse the pasta briefly with hot water in the colander, so as to remove excess starch without cooling down the noodles. Toss the hot noodles with garlic and olive oil and, if using, the grated cheese. Proceed with whatever sauce you had planned. Perhaps a marinara that began with garlic in oil with oregano. Whatever the final destination, you’ll be glad the noodles have garlic on them.
For those looking to stock up on bulk pantry items for the long winter ahead, the Central Oregon Fill Your Pantry event on Nov. 14 is the place to do it—and to support local farmers at the same time. The event lets locals fill up on large quantities of things commonly used in the kitchen, such as 10-pound bags of onions, or 20-pound bags of potatoes, for example. Now in its fifth year, this year’s event will take place at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds, outdoors, where people can socially distance while also stocking up. “I believe that now, more than ever, Fill Your Pantry is crucial to the food security of Central Oregon,” said Event Coordinator Megan French in a press release. “I believe in the power of this community to care for each other, to grow nutritious food for each other, and to do it all while caring for the land. This is a great place to play your part in creating a more robust local food system.” Pre-ordering for the event began on Oct. 25 and continues through Nov. 8. Pre-ordering allows farmers to plan how much food to bring, and also allows the customer to reserve the items they want. Not all items available at the event will be on the pre-order list; other vendors will be available at the Nov. 14 event. Patrons do not need to register in advance to attend the free event.

hick socks. Steaming soup. A warm spot by the heater. A crop of garlic in the ground. These are the stuff of wintertime cozy feelings. Like having meat in the freezer, or jars of peaches in the pantry. Garlic in the ground equals food security, long before it pokes above the ground. It’s fulfilling to kick back and simply know that you have done the work. Now it’s your garlic’s turn. In the ground, it’s biding its time patiently. In the kitchen, it’s warming you every day. As you lounge about in socially distant isolation upon the sofa, you look up from the seed catalog mid-perusal and attempt to ponder life from the perspective of your garlic cloves, planted back in the fall before the ground froze. Activated by the moist soil, they began sending out roots from the cells around the scab at the bottom of each clove. Come spring, a green shoot will emerge from each tip. Before you know it, your neighbors will feel inadequate because your garlic is knee-high by the fourth of May, by which time their radishes have barely sprouted. Planting garlic in the fall is part of the larger project of putting the garden to bed, and one of many winterization chores. Your first time, it may feel unusual to be digging and planting in the dirt while the autumn leaves are blowing around. It’s oddly optimistic to be planting, even as the grey cold builds. Like making babies during wartime. Garlic growing is a four-season practice. During the late summer months after the garlic harvest when there isn’t even a crop in the ground, the garlic grower nonetheless is at work. I tarped my garlic patch in August. By November the soil turns over like soft butter. In Spring you’re weeding, and then watering, and in summer you’re harvesting and tarping. In the fall you’re planting and tucking them in, and in winter you’re just waiting, and eating. Planting garlic has also forged an unlikely reunion with my high school algebra. Remember how we always used to complain that we were never going to use our algebra? Well, I went ahead and proved us wrong. I didn’t set out to derive an equation out of thin air. I was just trying to figure out how much garlic to plant. My equation can do that for you, too, provided you have a sense of your daily garlic consumption, and you have chosen the garlic you wish to plant. Ideally you have the garlic in front of you and can palpate the bulbs of a few heads and calculate a quick average number of cloves per bulb. Most quality varieties have between four and eight cloves per

SCREEN Spookies Ideas For a Mellow Halloween By Jared Rasic 23

ZOMBIES: “#Alive” (2020) - A South Korean zombie epic about a gamer trapped in his high-rise apartment building during an uprising of the hungry dead. The zombies are scary, the camerawork is tight and the gore is plentiful, but the real find here is watching a normal guy use modern technology to try to save his own life. A modern zombie classic. Now streaming on Netflix. COSMIC HORROR: “Color Out of Space” (2020) - Everything is better with a little Nicolas Cage, and this HP Lovecraft goop fest has Cage mega-acting so hard that he’s in serious danger of spontaneous combustion. He plays an alpaca farmer whose family is put in danger by the crash of a purple meteorite that makes everything…squishy. Beautiful to look at and

ot to be a downer, but a lot of people are gonna get that ‘rona on Halloween. Bars will be packed, booze will be plentiful and good choices will be few and far between, so if you don’t feel like playing around with all that, I’ve made you a list of spookies you can check out with your friends, loved ones and everyone in between. Since I’m a film nerd, however, I’m not recommending you watch “Hocus Pocus” for the 50th time. Instead, I want us out of our comfort zones watching scary movies that we might not have seen from some of the different subgenres of horror. Let’s take some chances and get weird with it.

This is an absolutely charming throwback to when horror could be innocent and a little goofy without any irony or cynicism. Still one of the best horror/comedy hybrids of all time.

From Lars von Trier, director of “Antichrist,” comes another nightmare about a prolific serial killer hunting young women throughout Washington State in the 1970s and ‘80s. This is actually a sly retelling of Dante’s “Inferno” but with more blood and terror. This is for expert level horror nerds. Now Streaming on Hulu.

Reflections on the deadliest pandemic recorded in human history By Jim Anderson Jim Anderson
rodents, and rats specifically. Back in the 1300s, as Europeans were in the process of discovering who else lived on our beautiful old Planet Earth, they began building their ships larger and larger, capable of staying at sea for long periods of time. But, living conditions in the cities of the period were not as hygienic as they are today. Streets were filthy. Human waste was common around the living quarters. Only the noble and the rich had homes that were clean; they could afford hiring people to keep them that way. One wild animal took advantage of those rough living conditions and moved right in with the people — the
VOLUME 24 ISSUE 37 / OCTOBER 29, 2020 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
everal years ago, I heard a tragic story of a young child from Simnasho living on the Warm Springs Reservation who died from bubonic plague; it got a lot of people’s attention. The story I heard was that her pet house cat killed and carried a Belding’s Ground Squirrel into her home. A flea from the rodent, infected with bubonic plague, aka Black Death, bit the young girl, giving her the plague, and the medical community somehow missed the symptoms. Then, in 2015, medical authorities in Oregon confirmed another case of the plague in a teenage girl who was believed to have also contracted the disease from a flea bite.
One wild animal took advantage of those rough living conditions and moved right in with the people — the wild rat, a rodent of magnificent talents. State and local health officials in Oregon said they thought the girl got infected during a hunting trip on Oct. 16 near the Blue Mountains in the northeastern region of the state. She fell ill on Oct. 21 and was hospitalized days later, and the last I heard she survived after being in intensive care in the hospital for some time. The Black Death was the deadliest pandemic ever recorded in human history. It resulted in the deaths of between 75 and 200 million people in Eurasia and North Africa, peaking in Europe from 1347 to 1351. The disease was caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis, spread to humans by a flea living on the host animal. Today, right here, right now, that same plague is with us, carried here by
wild rat, a rodent of magnificent talents. It came with the common name, Black Rat. But when science got going and started classifying animals, it became known as Ratus, specifically Rattus rattus, or when the Scandinavians studied it, Rattus norveignnus. And the one thing rats love to do is find new places to live and new sources of food. To do so, they moved into the huge sailing ships by running up the thick ropes holding the ships to the docks. When the ships pulled into new ports, or just sailed up the rivers to new lands (perhaps like the ancestors of Leif Erikson, who sailed up the Mississippi River way ahead of the so-called discovery of the North American continent by Christopher Columbus) the rats went Jane Anderson

along, and many of them became the first European residents of what would become the United States of America. Those rats shared their infected fleas with the native rodents of their new homes, and today, those same native rodents are recognized by public health officials as carriers of the plague. Thankfully, we have owls and other raptors, along with mammalian predators that consume rats and other rodents with relish, keeping their numbers low enough so as not be a social or health problem for you and me. This subject has been uppermost in my old noodle because of the move my wife, Sue, and I just made from Sisters to The Swamp, otherwise known as The Willamette Valley, and Eugene in particular. The first thing we did when we settled in this small studio apartment we’re in, waiting for our home to be built near our son’s place, was to install a small water feature and put up a hanging bird feeder. To help things along, I placed a
wonderful mix of bird food on top of the fence between the apartment and the place next door, which immediately was plundered by native Gray and Douglas tree squirrels. This in turn attracted Black-capped Chickadees, both Scrub and Steller’s jays and just lately, a couple of Red-breasted Nuthatches, all well and good. But then, without warning, a large dark rodent appeared through a hole in the bottom of the fence and caught my eye. Both Sue and I went to work trying to photograph it, but our 7-year-old granddaughter, Jane, finally got it — a rat! It boldly emerged during broad daylight to investigate the spilled bird food. Why haven’t we seen them east of the Cascades? Too difficult for them to get through the snow or no cross-country skis of canteen…? Sure, Eugene is a long way from the Oregon Coast, where ships pulled in from around the world, but don’t ever underestimate the talents of rats to travel globally, whenever or wherever they want to.

Make a Plan for What Happens Next, Before Listing the Property for Sale Planning ensures one is actually ready to sell
t’s no secret that the real estate market has been the bright spot in the U.S. economy over the last year. Property values have increased an average of 13% nationally since February. It should come as no surprise that property owners are taking advantage of tremendous increases in values and cashing on the equity gains. I’ve had several people talk to me about selling and cashing in, and what I tell all of them is to make a plan.
It starts with one of the most important questions: “Is selling what I really want to do?” Selling a property is not generally known to be a relaxing experience. It involves preparation and planning. In addition to engaging a real estate professional to list and market the home for sale, making the necessary repairs and preparing the property for showings, one needs to be clear about what happens when the property does sell. When, where, what and why are the questions that should be addressed prior to listing the property. When: The “when” addresses timing. If it’s a primary residence being sold, one must consider when it is that they ideally want to move. If moving around and being out and about during the winter months is not one’s forte, then it makes sense not to list the property for sale in the late fall/winter. Addressing the “when” prior to actively marketing the property for sale will make the necessary post-closing activities easier to digest. Where: The “where” addresses a couple of things. In the case of an owner-occupied sale, where is the seller going to move? If the intent is to cash in and rent a home, it’s best to be clear about the state of the rental market. In Central Oregon (not unlike the real estate market), it’s incredibly competitive, and one would be wise to begin the rental search as the property is listed for sale. If planning to purchase another home with the proceeds, where
will the next home be? Does that area have the amenities, schools, medical services etc. that fit one’s specific needs and desires? Having the plan around where one is going when the sale closes will make for a smoother sales process, as it helps to quell the stress of uncertainty in an already stressful situation. What: The “what” plays a crucial role in the sale of a property and post-closing activities. One must identify what the goal of the sale is, what the plan for the proceeds is, what are the lines in the sand as a seller—considerations like, what’s the sales price threshold and what as a seller won’t be agreed to. What repairs and concessions may be required for a successful close and one’s threshold for such requests? Essentially, making a plan ahead of time means one is better prepared in knowing where the line in the sand is to be drawn. It’s key in selling a property to be clear on the goal. Is it to cash in on the proceeds? Upsize or downsize? Or perhaps it’s to move to other cities or states completely. When a seller is clear about the goal for the sale of the property, it helps one keep an eye on the proverbial prize when moving through some of the more stressful parts of the sales process. Finally, what’s the plan with the proceeds? Are they to fund another property purchase, to bank the money or pay down debt? Being clear about the ultimate goal for the equity proceeds helps one stay focused on the reason for the sale. Why: The final and crucial question, the “why” supports the when, where and what. It is the bottom-line goal. The “why” really answers the question of “does one really want to sell?” The “why” is the reason driving the plan to reach the goal, which is to close a sale. When a seller is clear on their “why,” the plan comes together with greater ease and also helps the industry professionals hired to market and sell the property accomplish the goal.

For example, there’s that saying, “Everything happens for a reason.” No, the fact that those $800 shoes are now $465 does not count as a reason.

AR TAIN ST
Compulsive shopping is often motivated by a longing to escape uncomfortable emotions, for example, anxiety or stress. It has similarities with addiction disorders, observes behavioral economist Shahram Heshmat, such as a “buyer’s high,” a rush of excitement when purchasing an item. However, the relief from emotional discomfort is quickly replaced by guilt and remorse for the irresponsible spending, which can fuel a “vicious cycle”: the need for “another ‘fix,’ purchasing something else.” To break the cycle, you need to “protect long-term goals from short-term consumption decisions,” Heshmat explains. This starts with recognizing your triggers: uncomfortable “negative” emotions like feeling hungry, angry, lonely, or anxious, which make you more likely to fling the future out the window to get that quickfix buyer’s high.
Remind yourself regularly that uncomfortable feelings will not kill you.
They’re also temporary. Make a pact with yourself that when you feel the urge to shop, you’ll instead acknowledge the underlying feelings you’re escaping, tell yourself you can handle a bit of feel-bad, and then do what you can to feel better, like calling up a friend. In case you get their voicemail, come up with other healthy diversions like taking a walk or streaming a trashy action flick. Of course, what you can’t see or click on, you can’t buy. Stay off shopping websites, and wipe them from your computer by clearing your cache, cookies, and history. You might also prepare to padlock your phone in a box and set a timer for a day, or at least several hours. To arm yourself with positive motivations to counter negative feelings, prepare to reset your emotional clock from the uncomfortable “now” to the exciting possible future. Stock up mental pictures of the benefits of behaving in financially responsible ways, like a snapshot of you and your friends enjoying drinks at a beautiful condo you buy with your savings. In time, as you stop responding to bad feelings by click-shopping your way to bankruptcy, the neural tentacles of your habit will weaken, as will the clutches of your compulsion. You might also work up a little compassion for yourself for having it in the first place. Technology has made our lives vastly easier, but it’s also given us countless new ways to mess them up. Back in 1347, people were freaked about the bubonic plague, just like we are at the ‘rona, but they simply didn’t have the option of getting drunk at 2 a.m. and sending off a carrier pigeon with an ill-advised order for obscenely pricey shoes.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio politician
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “By my love and hope I beseech you,” pleaded philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. “Do not cast away the hero in your soul! Hold holy your highest hope!” That’s always good advice, but it’s extra crucial for you now. You will generate good fortune for yourself by being in close connection with the part of you that is bravest and wisest. The people whose lives you touch will have a special need for you to express the vitalizing power of intelligent hopefulness. More than maybe ever before, you will be inspired to cultivate your heroic qualities.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I’ve been writing my horoscope column for a long time, and it has evolved dramatically. One aspect that hasn’t changed is that every four years, I’ve endorsed a candidate for the president of my home country, the United States. Another unchanging aspect is that I regularly reveal my progressive views about political matters. Some people who have only recently discovered my writing express dismay about this. “I don’t want politics with my horoscopes!” they complain. But the fact is, politics have permeated my horoscopes since the beginning. Now I urge you to do what I just did, Aquarius, but in your own sphere: If there are people who are not clear about who you really are, educate them.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “The worse the state of the world grows, the more intensely I try for inner perfection and power,” wrote Piscean author Anais Nin during World War II. “I fight for a small world of humanity and tenderness.” I encourage you to adopt that perspective for the rest of 2020. It’s an excellent time to respond boldly to the outer chaos by building up your inner beauty. I also suggest this addition to Nin’s formula: Call on your resourceful compassion to bolster the resilience of your closest allies. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Reed Galen is an American political consultant who has worked long and hard for conservative causes. But in next week’s election, he opposes conservative Donald Trump, whom he regards as an authoritarian tyrant. He writes, “Democracy is on the ballot. It’s a binary choice between good/bad, honorable/dishonorable, healthy/sick, forward/backward. There has been nothing like this in our lifetimes.” If you’ve read my words for a while, you know I’m a connoisseur of ambiguity and uncertainty. I try to see all sides of every story. But now I’m departing from my tradition: I agree with Reed Galen’s assessment. The American electorate really does face a binary
Dan Coats has belonged to the conservative Republican Party all his adult life. He served in the US Congress for 24 years, and later as President Donald Trump’s Director of National Intelligence. Since leaving that office, Coats has criticized his ex-boss. He has said, “Trump doesn’t know the difference between the truth and a lie.” In accordance with astrological omens, I urge you to be fiercely non-Trumplike in the coming weeks. It’s crucial to the welfare of you and yours that you tell the whole truth.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Many stories that were popular long ago are still studied today. One example is the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, originally told during the first century BC. Another is Homer’s epic tale the Odyssey, which harkens back to the sixth century BC. I have no problem with learning from old tales like these. It’s important to know how people of previous eras experienced life. But for you in the coming months, I think it will be crucial to find and tell new stories—tales that illuminate the unique circumstances that you are living through right now.
CANCER (June 21July 22): I’m surprised when I hear that fans of Donald Trump enjoy my horoscopes. My political views, which are deeply aligned with my spiritual philosophy, have always been very progressive. And I’ve never hidden that fact. How can someone who appreciates my ideas also like Trump, a vile bully who has unleashed enormous cruelty and chaos? If you yourself are a Trump fan, I understand that after reading the preceding words, you may never read my words again. But I need to follow my own astrological advice for us Cancerians, which is: Be bold and clear in expressing your devotion to the ideals you hold precious. For me that means supporting Joe Biden, an imperfect candidate who will nevertheless be a far more compassionate and intelligent and fair-minded leader than Trump.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Dionysus was the ancient Greek god of drunkenness and ecstasy and madness. His followers were inclined to immerse themselves in those states. Yet as historian Robert Parker points out, Dionysus himself “was seldom drunk, seldom mad.” His relationship with his consort Ariadne was “dignified and restrained,” and “smiling tranquility” was his common mood. I recommend that in the coming weeks you act more like Dionysus than his followers—no matter how unruly the world around you may become. The rest of us need you to be a bastion of calmness and strength. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo military expert Jim Mattis enlisted in the US Marine Corps when he was 19 years old. Forty-three years later, having been a Marine all his adult life and a general for six years, he retired. Later, he served under President Donald Trump as the US Secretary of Defense. After leaving that position, Mattis testified that Trump was “dangerous” and “unfit,” adding that Trump “has no moral compass.” Be inspired by Mattis, Virgo. Do your part to resist the harmful and unethical actions of powerful people who affect you. Be extra strong and clear in standing up for integrity.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Feeling too much is a hell of a lot better than feeling nothing,” declares Libran author Nora Roberts. I trust you will see the wisdom of that perspective in the coming weeks. On the downside, there might be some prickly, disorienting feelings arriving along with the rich flood of splendor. But I’m convinced that most of the surge will be interesting, invigorating, and restorative—although it may take a while for the full effects to ripen. And even the prickly, disorienting stuff may ultimately turn out to be unexpectedly nurturing for your soul.

29 VOLUME 24 ISSUE 37 / OCTOBER 29, 2020 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The United States has suffered terribly from COVID-19. Of all the world’s countries, it has had more cases and more deaths. Why? One major reason is President Donald Trump. He has consistently downplayed the seriousness of the disease, has advocated many unscientific cures, and has been lax and erratic in supporting the therapeutic measures that virtually all epidemiological experts have recommended. It’s no exaggeration to assert that Americans will reduce their coronavirus misery by electing Joe Biden as president. In this spirit, and in accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to meditate on how you could reduce any and all of your own personal suffering. The time is right. Be ingenious! Be proactive!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus politician
ADVERTISE IN OUR WELLNESS SECTION ADVERTISE@BENDSOURCE.COM
Joe Biden wasn’t my first choice for President of the United States. During the selection process, I championed his opponents Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. But now I support Biden wholeheartedly. He has several policies I don’t agree with, but on the other hand I know it’s critical that we Americans ensure he replaces the appalling, corrupt, incompetent Trump. In the coming days, I advise you Scorpios to also consider the value of wise and pragmatic compromise in your own sphere. Don’t allow a longing for impossible perfection to derail your commitment to doing what’s right.
choice between good and bad. I also suspect, Aries, that you may be dealing with a binary choice in your personal life. Don’t underestimate how important it is that you side with the forces of good.

The summer Take-Home Brewfest sold out, so don’t miss out on the Winter Take-Home Brewfest.

ure, you could head over to one of Central Oregon’s fine beer-cooler establishments and put together your own 24 pack of brews from sites around the state—but in the era of near-endless opportunities to get exactly what you want, whenever you want it, there’s something retro-cool about having someone else choose the selection. Silver Moon’s Take-Home Brewfest was one of the entities that kicked off a COVID-era trend of curating packs of brews and serving up a host of other “extras,” intended to offer some of the vibes one might get by attending a fullblown brew fest—something none of us, now more than seven months into this pandemic, have had enough of lately. In its first iteration early this summer, the Take-Home Brew Fest offered 20 different brews from area breweries. This time, the collection increases to a 24-pack, and includes not only Central Oregon locations, but also new additions from Oregon Coast and Portland breweries. The lineup includes brews from Astoria’s Fort George, for example, along with Portland’s Ecliptic, Migration and Ex Novo breweries and more. (Portland participants can pick up their boxes at Migration.) More than half of the brews are in bigger, 16-ounce bottles. “The Oregon Take-Home Brewfest is full of variety for craft beer fans across the state,” said Finn Leahy of
Silver Moon. “Lots of seasonal options such as red ales, stouts and porters to new takes on old classics such as winter IPAs, hazys and even imperial pilsners. This is a selection that will appeal to all demographics of craft beer lovers.” While decidedly not as actionpacked as a full-on brew fest, taking part in the Winter Take-Home Brewfest, which kicks off Dec. 5 and 6, includes a booklet filled with games, activities and recipes that pair well with certain beers. Also inside are more coupons and discounts from the participating breweries, Take-Home Brewfest glassware for two and other goodies. “We are also super excited to have breweries like Fort George and Breakside participate in this year’s event,” Leahy said. “They have been making big moves in the Portland market over the last few years and bring a lot of notoriety and great products into this project.” Registration has been open since early October and ends Nov. 3 at 11:45 pm (on Election Day—go figure!). After signing up, participants pick up their brews at Silver Moon Brewing in Bend or at Migration Brewing in Portland on Saturday, Dec. 5 and Sunday, Dec. 6.
