There’s so much to celebrate inside this issue of the Source Weekly: a story covering the 25th festival for Sisters Folk, an overview of the upcoming Fungi Fest in Sunriver, a preview of films to see at the upcoming BendFilm… and with the sweet also comes the salty, because also inside this issue is information on two beloved community members we lost this week. It’s hard to imagine a Source Weekly without the upbeat musings of naturalist Jim Anderson; likewise, it’s hard to imagine a Bend drag scene without Cult of Tuck founder Deb Auchery. Tributes to both of those great people are inside this issue, with more to come in future issues. Sit back, peruse these pages, and as always, thanks for reading!

Yes on 9-155 – Bend-La Pine Schools bond







oters in the Bend-La Pine Schools district have a consistent track record of supporting bonds for the construction and maintenance of local schools. Recent bond funding has seen the construction of both a new elementary school and a new high school in Bend—projects that have helped a district with a steady stream of new residents keep pace and mitigate overcrowding. This next round of general obligation bonds seeks to both repair and maintain the assets BLPS already has, while also adding some safety features that, sadly, appear necessary in the U.S. in the 21st Century. Some of the $249.7 million in bond funds would be used to add door mechanisms to each classroom in the district, allowing those inside to confirm that a door is locked even while across the room. Other funds would go toward fire “life safety systems,” as well as to repairs and maintenance of buildings. And while these bond funds would not fully cover the cost of getting Bend Senior

High School’s facilities up to par with the other high schools in the district, the funds would begin to replace some of the most dilapidated parts of Bend’s oldest high school. These are projects that serve to address safety, and in the case of Bend High, equity in the district, and voters should support them. Notably, with the expiration of older bonds in the district, this latest bond request would not raise the tax rate for property owners within the tax district—another reason why voters should have no problem saying “yes.” Educators in our schools have consistently faced tremendous division within the community and dealt with numerous challenges over the past few years. Not supporting this essential bond measure should not be one of the challenges they should have to face going forward. Vote yes on Measure 9-155 Administrative School District No. 1 (Bend-La Pine Schools) - Bonds for Safety Improvements, School Renovations and Preservation of Facilities.

Vote No on Measure 9-152 – Allow Psilocybin Manufacturing and Service Centers in unincorporated Deschutes County


Open Daily for You and Your Pets Healthy Adventures Await!



f it feels like double jeopardy to be voting on a thing that we just voted upon in the last election cycle in 2020, that’s because it is. Two of the commissioners on the Deschutes County Board of Commissioners—Tony DeBone and Patti Adair—have voted in favor of placing this item on the ballots of Deschutes County voters because they believe you don’t know what you voted for back in 2020. During his endorsement interview this month, DeBone told our editorial board just that— that he wanted to use this opportunity, on taxpayers’ dimes, to re-explain what a psilocybin manufacturing and/or service center would look like in the unincorporated county. To be fair, each county has the option to opt out of this program under the letter of the law, but since the majority of Deschutes County voters already voted in 2020 in favor of the program, this measure is a colossal waste of time and money coupled with a healthy dose of fearmongering. Here’s what psilocybin therapy is going to look like: People will use a small amount of space in a regulated and secure indoor environment to

grow psychedelic mushrooms that people in regulated, secure therapy programs can then consume to help them deal with anxiety, depression and other mental health concerns, under the supervision of trained professionals. What it won’t look like: a wild version of Woodstock where naked people run wild on the graveled roads of Tumalo. With mental health concerns like the ones named above at an all-time high, and with everyone from psychotherapists to military veterans seeing results from these therapies, we maintain that society needs more opportunities to explore effective natural therapies, not fewer. Vote no on Measure 9-152—” Concerning psilocybin manufacturing and service centers in unincorporated Deschutes County.”— so that all people in Deschutes County can see this emerging therapy come to fruition. *Note: Voting “No” means you want to keep the current plan—to roll out a therapy program in Deschutes County—in place.

A lack of affordable housing, homelessness, worker shortages, a childcare “desert,” drought and wildfires. These are just a few of the challenges we are facing right now in Deschutes County. Our elected officials have made progress towards addressing these challenges but there is still much work to be done. Frankly, some of these officials are not up to the task. Moving forward we need leaders who will prioritize tackling the complex problems instead of wasting resources on ideological crusades. Leaders who are forward looking, not shortsighted. Leaders who listen to experts and make decisions based on facts, not anecdotes. Leaders who are compassionate. Morgan Schmidt is the type of leader that the Deschutes County Commission needs right now. Morgan has 15 years of public service experience and is the Chair of the Homeless Leadership Coalition’s Community Engagement Committee and the Presbytery of the Cascades Wildfire Response Committee, but she is best known for her work during the pandemic. In March 2020, Morgan formed Pandemic Partners, an online forum with a simple premise, “If you need help, ask; if you can give help, do.” Thousands of Central Oregonians received much-needed assistance through Pandemic Partners. In fact, Pandemic Partners was so successful that Morgan received requests from other cities to help them establish similar programs. Morgan evaluated the needs of her community, listened to public health experts and took action. I am confident she will be an excellent and effective County Commissioner. Please join me and vote for Morgan Schmidt this November. —Adrian Jones

Central Oregonians know the topic of “water” has everyone’s attention. To effectively address water-related issues, electing Jamie McLeod-Skinner as our Congressional District 5 Representative will help immensely, as water and other natural resource sciences are the foundation of Jamie’s training. She understands how landscapes respond to planned and unplanned changes. As a water law attorney and a civil engineer, she has expertise on the issues impacting agriculture, water management and land development. Jamie knows where and how communities can get results from local, state and federal agencies on water issues. She recently collaborated with community stakeholders to improve water access for farmers and ranchers affected by Oregon’s multiyear drought to protect their livelihoods. Jamie sits on the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, which provides grants to protect and restore healthy watersheds and habitats for thriving communities. As an emergency response coordinator, she has on-the-ground experience in community disaster preparedness and recovery, including making infrastructure investments to upgrade water systems. Through her years of work on water, drought, and fire issues, Jamie developed relationships with leaders and managers across Oregon and in D.C.; relationships we’ll benefit from when she is in Congress. Jamie’s opponent has no water expertise. With more people moving to the Pacific Northwest, impacts to water supply will be undeniable. We need leaders who have water expertise. Jamie will work to protect our water and rural economies for future generations. Please look for what you can do to support Jamie

RE: DISTRICT REMOVES INSPIRATIONAL MURALS FROM BEND SCHOOL This is truly heartbreaking. Having worked in an elementary school for many years that celebrated art and had many inspirational murals and art project on display, I know how much comfort and joy kids get from being in a beautified environment that values children and creativity. What a shameful and senseless decision. Just awful. —Maia Yamasaki via To me, this case brings up the issue of support for teachers. Having been a teacher, I know that many teachers are in this profession because it is a labor of love, hoping to make a difference, inspiring and motivating children. We all know that teaching is not a profession for those seeking material wealth! Through Covid, through school shooting scares, poor pay, poor resources, teachers are there because they love the kids and want to nurture and feed their sense of wonder and curiosity. Teachers are the ones who are on the front lines, in the trenches, the ones actually interacting with and understanding students—their anxieties, learning needs and what inspires. If you are a teacher, it is understood that a student cannot learn to read, to do arithmetic, understand history and science unless they feel grounded, secure, comfortable

and happy. Socio-emotional learning— how to be kinder and better citizens to each other and in the community—are an integral part of the whole picture of learning. And Mrs. Rodgers, by virtue of being on the front lines, actually interacting with the children, knew what her children and others in the school needed—inspiration, beauty, kind words— everything that was in the murals. She—not outdated rules that perhaps need to be reevaluated—knows better what the children need. What would you—school district, administration, parents, community—do to give much needed support and respect, a voice to your caring and hardworking teachers? Can we as a community ask, “What is best for the children?” and seek guidance on this question from our teachers. When it comes to raising and nurturing and teaching our children... politics and personal egos need to take a back seat. That’s what (most) teachers do. Put children first. SO, listen to teachers. Support them. In my opinion, not including Mrs. Rodgers and other teachers in the decision to remove the mural lacked decency and respect for the teaching profession. —Tomoko Ferguson via

Firefighting in the Era of Megafires WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / SEPTEMBER 29, 2022 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE


Firefighters have drawn containment lines for 20% of the Cedar Creek Fire, and indirect lines for as much as half of it. How it’s fought and how it grew looks different than it did just 10 years ago. By Jack Harvel Courtesy of the National Incident Management Team


he Cedar Creek Fire was just one of up to 30 spotted after a lightning storm crossed the Cascades on Aug. 1. Rappelers went out in helicopters the next day to respond, but couldn’t find a safe access point to the then-5-acre fire. Helicopters dropped water on the fire most of Tuesday, but by Wednesday it’d grown to an estimated 100 acres. Nearly two months later the fire is over 114,000 acres, and burning in inaccessible areas not conducive to building line support, using dozers and other direct firefighting techniques—so firefighters are using an “indirect” firefighting strategy. One thing the Cascade Crest is conducive to is wildfires; good soil, plenty of moisture and moss that spreads fires up trees and makes it easier to spread. An indirect strategy identifies areas around the fire where firefighters can make a stand. “That can be 100 feet, that could be 15 miles based on what you have available as options,” said Northwest Incident Management Team Operations Section Chief Chris Orr. “With the tremendous fire behavior that was coming out of this, you could not be close to it in a direct strategy; you come out to some distance where you’re much more likely to be successful by making a stand there. We look at areas with breaks in fuel, changes in typography in our favor and existing barriers that we could improve upon to be successful.” The barriers can be roads, rivers or areas with more spread-out trees and foliage. On the Cedar Creek Fire, crews have about 20% of containment lines drawn, but the lines don’t connect all the way around—plus, containment lines don’t consider the indirect lines fire crews are working on now. Orr said they’ve dug about half of the indirect containment lines needed to isolate the fire. He cites fuel accumulation from fighting other fires, and the resultant larger fires as reasons for the change in approach, with a lesser focus on “containment.” “Years ago, when we were able to have smaller fires that we could get around, containment made more sense. The last six, seven years in the era of mega fires with the drought in the West, the fuel accumulations, the lack of resources, we’re not going direct on every fire anymore. So, containment is not the term that best fits it,” Orr said. Firefighting strategies changed over the past decades as fires have spread faster, all while the wildland firefighting workforce shrank. In June about 20% of Oregon’s federal firefighter workforce positions were vacant. A changing view of fire’s place in an ecosystem has also impacted how firefighting has changed. Fire is so built into the ecosystem that plants like the Lodgepole

pine’s cones must be exposed to high heat before they can release seeds. While firefighters 10 or more years ago may have rushed to extinguish a fire as quickly as possible, now they account for long-term impacts on the landscape. “I keep going back to those same areas where we caught it small, and now it’s just burning all around it under worse conditions,” Orr said. “If we can have the conditions where we can allow fire to do its thing to

"If we can have the conditions where we can allow fire to do its thing to reduce the fuel loading, buffer it for the next year and the next 30 years to come, we’re all in a better spot.”


reduce the fuel loading, buffer it for the next year and the next 30 years to come, we’re all in a better spot.” The firefighters are working on an eastern and western front on the Cedar Creek Fire. In the east, the Northwest Incident Management Team 7 is working on reducing fuel along the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway, Charlton Lake Road and several forest service roads. In Jack Harvel

One of three camps firefighters set up to host the nearly 2,000 people battling the Cedar Creek Fire is at Mount Bachelor.

the west Northwest Incident Management Team 9 is “firing operations” to eliminate fuels and bring the fire closer to existing containment lines. The fire is about 15 miles east of Oakridge, which at one point evacuated the whole town. Now parts of the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests are subject to closure orders. Smoke from the fire drifted into Central Oregon but has more often traveled northward. From there it can travel across the globe as it latches onto the jetstreams in the upper atmosphere. “Some of our fires have gotten smoke on the East Coast. I have family in Michigan that has complained to me, ‘We’ve got your smoke,’” said Alan Hageman, NWIMT7’s public information officer. “If you’re healthy, it’s annoying. If you’re not healthy it can be a game changer.” Once the fire is contained and even once it’s burned itself out there’s still work to be done. Wildfires leave hazardous burned-out trees in their wake that look healthy but can fall shortly after a fire ends. “There will be hazards from this fire, there will be, and those have to be identified and mitigated or removed before that access is there,” Hageman said. As fires get bigger and faster, Orr and Hageman said people need to become more adjusted to life in an ecosystem prone to fire. Evacuation orders may be issued even if a fire is over 10 miles away. Smoke isn’t going to go away. And people will have to become responsible for their own property. “I used to work in Yosemite, and in California defensible space for a lot of people is like second nature. And then when I came to Oregon, it seems like not everybody’s got the memo,” Hageman said. Defensible space can involve whole remodels like replacing shake shingle roofs, using cement siding and decks and installing fire-resistant ventilation. It could also involve how a property is taken care of, including things like clearing wood from under decks, keeping firewood more than 30 feet away and not having trees and foliage near a house.


Lowered Standards

Oregon standardized test scores dropped by 9%, and Central Oregon wasn’t immune to COVID learning loss


Standardized test scores are down by 9% in Oregon, and both Bend-La Pine Schools and the Redmond School District trended down in all three subjects. The 2021-22 school year was the first time students have taken standardized tests since the 2018-19 school year, after the pandemic disrupted education. Though test scores were down in BLPS they fared better than the state’s average decline in all subjects except science. In English 56% of BLPS students received passing grades compared to 60.7% in ‘18-19, a 44.9% pass rate in math compared to 49.4% and a 33.4% pass rate compared to 43%. "While we avoided steep declines seen in some districts across the nation, we did experience an overall dip," said Dave VanLoo, director of school improvement at BLPS. "Likely these results are connected to the disrupted learning that students experienced during the pandemic, which included a variety of increased stressors both in and outside of school for families." Redmond similarly saw scores drop to 45.5% passing from 52.8% in English, 32.8% from 42.9% in math and 30.9% from 34.5% in science. “What we attribute that to mostly is the pandemic. So that lost learning that happened in the pandemic, things like attendance issues from having to quarantine, the challenges of online learning, that’s what we think caused it,” said Holly Brown, public information officer for the Redmond School District. “Now that we’re back in school we are hoping that we can have better attendance and that face-to-face education.” As standardized tests return from a COVID-caused hiatus, schools are starting to see the impact the pandemic had on student success. Nationally, reading scores declined more than they have in 30 years and math, decreasing for the first time since the National Center for Education Statistics started tracking scores. Averages scores fell 7% in math and 5% in reading for 9-year-old students. “These are some of the largest declines we have observed in a single assessment cycle in 50 years of the NAEP program," Daniel McGrath, the acting associate commissioner of NCES, told National Public Radio. “Students in 2022 are performing at a level last seen two decades ago.” All demographic groups saw scores slip nationally, but students of color and those attending less-affluent schools saw more dramatic drops. Participation in Oregon’s standardized tests also dropped. In BLPS about 83.8% of students tested in reading in the ‘21-22 school year compared to 88.2% during the last round of testing and 81.5% in math, compared to 86.1%.

The Brookings Institute tracked student achievement, showing a sharp decline in math scores at the start of the pandemic.

Redmond saw an even greater drop, testing more than 10% fewer students than it did in the '18-'19 school year. Less than 70% of Redmond students took a standardized test in any of the three subjects. “We wish that more people would participate, because the scores are meant to be a measurement standard. And if we’re not getting a great participation rate, then we can’t really properly assess that data,” Brown said. Those numbers are critical for administrators to allocate resources. The data breaks down demographic groups and whether they participate in certain school

“Every year that the testing data comes out, we take a look and see in what areas what student focus groups that we might need to allocate some more resources to and try to improve those numbers.” —HOLLY BROWN

programs like English-language learning students and Special Ed students. “Every year that the testing data comes out, we take a look and see in what areas what student focus groups that we might need to allocate some more resources to and try to improve those numbers,” Brown said. “We’re just hoping that more students will participate in the testing so that we can assess our programs, and really give the best education and devote the right assets where they need to be devoted to the school district.” During the pandemic, Oregon was slower to return to in-person learning compared to other states, and though enrollment isn’t back at its pre-COVID peak in BLPS and RSD, students are slowly re-entering the public school system. BLPS enrollment is pretty much the same as last year, but its online program has a total population of 180 students—about 70 fewer students than the district anticipated. In Redmond there are about 50 more students than last year, which may not indicate people returning to traditional schooling rather than standard growth from Redmond’s rising population. “This school year, it looks like we had a standard increase. There wasn’t anything super surprising. But we are still under our pre COVID numbers by a little over 300 students,” Brown said.

La lucha contra incendios en la era de fuertes incendios Por / By Jack Harvel Translated by / Traducido por Jéssica Sánchez-Millar

Casi dos meses después, el incendio se encuentra cerca de las 114,000 hectáreas y arde en zonas inaccesibles que no son propicias para el apoyo de líneas de contención, de escabadoras y de otras técnicas directas de extinción de incendios, por lo que los bomberos están usando una estrategia “indirecta” para extinguir incendios. Una cosa en la que Cascade Crest es propicia es a los incendios forestales; hay buen terreno, mucha humedad y musgo que se esparce los incendios en los árboles y hace que se propague más fácilmente. Una estrategia indirecta identifica las zonas alrededor del incendio en dónde los bomberos pueden resistir al incendio.

“Puede ser 100 pies, eso podría ser 15 millas basado en lo que tenga uno disponible como alternativa,” dijo Chris Orr, Jefe del Equipo del Departamento de Operaciones del Equipo de Gestión de Incidentes del Noroeste. “Con el comportamiento tan impresionante del fuego que estaba surgiendo, no podías estar cerca de él durante una estrategia directa; tienes que llegar a una cierta distancia en donde es mucho más probable que tengas éxito si te situas allí. Buscamos zonas con fugas de combustible, cambios en la tipografía a nuestro favor y barreras existentes que podríamos mejorar para tener éxito.” Las barreras pueden ser los caminos, los ríos o las zonas con árboles y follaje más dispersos. En el incendio de Cedar Creek, las cuadrillas tienen marcadas cerca del 20% de líneas de contención, pero las líneas no se conectan completamente, además, las líneas de contención no tienen en cuenta las líneas indirectas en las que las cuadrillas de bomberos están trabajando ahora. Orr dijo que aproximadamente la mitad de las líneas de conteción indirecta estaban establecidas.

Cita la acumulación del combustible al combatir otros incendios y los incendios más extensos resultants, como las razones para el cambio de enfoque, con un menor enfoque en la “contención”. “Hace años, cuando podíamos tener incendios más pequeños que podíamos enfrentar, el uso de la contención tenía más sentido. Los últimos seis, siete años en la zona de los megaincendios, con la sequía en el oeste, las acumulaciones de combustible, la falta de recursos, ya no vamos a dirigir directamente a cada incendio. Así que la contención no es el mejor de los terminos,” comentó Orr. Las estrategias para combatir incendios cambiaron en las últimas décadas a medida que los incendios se propagan más rápidamente, todo mientras que la fuerza laboral para combatir los incendios se reduce. En junio, cerca del 20% de los puestos de trabajo de bomberos federales de Oregon estaban vacantes (about 20% of Oregon’s federal firefighter workforce positions were vacant.) Una vez que esté contenido el incendio e incluso una vez que se haya extinguido, aún queda mucho trabajo por hacer. Los incendios forestales dejan a

su paso peligro como lo son los árboles quemados que se ven saludables pero que pueden caerse poco después de que se apague el fuego. “Habrá peligro debido a este incendio, lo habrá, y deberán ser identificados y mitigados o eliminados antes que haya acceso” comentó Hageman. A medida que los incendios son más grandes y más rápidos, las autoridades dijeron que las personas necesitan adaptarse más a la vida en un ecosistema propenso a los incendios. Se pueden emitir órdenes de evacuación incluso si el incendio se encuentra a más de 10 millas de distancia. El humo no va a desaparecer. Y las personas tendrán que responsabilizarse de sus propios bienes. Un espacio defendible puede involucrar una remodelación total, cómo reemplazar los techos de tejas, usar revestimiento y terrazas de cemento e instalar ventilación resistente al fuego. También podría incluir cómo cuidar una propiedad, incluyendo cosas como quitar la madera que hay debajo de las terrazas, guardar la leña a más de 30 pies de distancia de la casa y no tener árboles o follaje cerca de la casa.

l incendio forestal de Cedar Creek fue solo uno de los 30 que se detectaron después de la tormenta de rayos a lo largo de Cascades el 1 de agosto. Personas descendieron en rapel del helicóptero al día siguiente para responder al incendio pero no pudieron encontrar un punto de acceso seguro al incendio, en aquel entonces, de 5 acres. Los helicópteros arrojaron agua sobre el fuego la mayor parte del martes, pero para el miércoles se había extendido a unas 100 hectáreas.


For the Love of Music

Sisters Folk marks its 25th festival this year. Between the festival, its year-round programming and educational opportunities in schools, its impact on Central Oregon is nothing short of astounding



By Nicole Vulcan


hose who have attended the Sisters Folk Festival or any of its special programming throughout the year already are in the know, but it bears repeating: the impact of this entity on Sisters, and wider Central Oregon, is immense. What started as a small festival celebrating folk music in the shoulder season in the small town of Sisters has grown to include songwriting and instrument-making classes in local schools, a songwriter’s academy connecting experienced and emerging musicians, year-round concerts, fundraisers that are events all in themselves, and now, with the purchase of the Sisters Artworks building in 2020, an outdoor venue that hosts concerts throughout the summer. A love of Americana music is the root of the effort, but that root has grown many branches in the three decades of its existence. The festival has seen setbacks in recent years, with closures in both 2017 due to wildfire smoke and 2020 due to COVID. But now, with festival weekend happening in October, away from the heaviest impacts of fire season, the festival is marking its 25th year and is getting ready to rock this weekend. In honor of those 25 years of festivals, the Source Weekly chatted with several of its past and present contributors, including this Q&A with Creative Director Brad Tisdel. The interviews have been edited for length and clarity. Source Weekly: Sisters Folk Festival is celebrating its 25th festival this year— but the timeline is a bit more extended, right? Brad Tisdel: The organization was started as a nonprofit in 1995 to produce the sisters Folk Festival. It was one venue at what is now the Sisters Middle School. They produced festivals in '95, '96, '97 and '98. I think in '98 it was at the present-day Meadows Village, just in kind of a dusty field, in a tent. They took 1999 off because they had lost a little bit of money in the ‘98 festival. And, and in 2000, we came back strong with Kathy Deggendorfer helping bring quite a few sponsors and different community members, and a little bit of a different model. And that was the same year that we started the Americana Project as well. And I was asked, basically in summer of 2002, to help create and direct

the Americana Project, and we ended up doing that and over the course of the next five years. From 2000 to 2005, we created the Americana Project, the Americana Song Academy and My Own Two Hands as a fundraiser for those programs, and it kind of took off from there. SW: Give people a sense of what the Americana Project is. BT: It’s the educational outreach program of the Sisters Folk Festival. For the past 22 years we’ve taught a class, if not two, at the high school, teaching guitar playing, songwriting, performing, recording—many guest artists, many different opportunities for young people to perform, and it’s also about the history of roots music—blues, jazz, gospel, folk and all the different aspects that make up what is now Americana music. Over time we’ve developed programming in partnership with the school district—it really encompasses K-12 music & arts, visual arts programming. The other part too—in 2007, Tony Cosby and Jayson Bowerman started the Luthier Program, and that was building guitars with high school kids in the wood shop. A couple years after that, we took over the management, got a grant, upgraded a lot of the machinery and worked in tandem with Jayson Bowerman and Tony really ever since. And at this point, there’s been maybe 470 or so guitars built and for a long time, they were building handmade ukuleles as well. Probably a couple hundred of those were built and that program to this day still exists, and they’re building really nice handmade instruments. SW: That’s super cool. I wondered, there’s now these kids, who for a long time have had this exposure to professional musicians and things. And I imagine some of those have gone on to become musicians themselves. BT: The people that come up for me are kind of still involved. I don’t even know what year it was, but probably 2007 or '08, we started the Song Academy for Youth, and we produced that for about 12 to 14 years, bringing different alumni students back who would then teach at the Song Academy for Youth, which was kind of modeled after our

Song Academy that we’ve always done up there—Peter Smith who went on to create The Weather Machine and he’s still active musically for sure. Laura Curtis is someone that I’ve always kind of gone to because she pursued a professional recording career and she’s not doing that necessarily anymore as a pro, but she definitely still plays and writes and sings. There’s a fella in town here that’s still involved, Drew Harrison, who is going to be part of our staff at the Academy this year. And then Benji Nagel is also someone that lives in Sisters, has created a home in Sisters, has a family and still teaches and plays. He’s active in a whole bunch of bands all throughout Central Oregon. The thing that I appreciate most is the intergenerational connection between all these young people that have stayed really involved with us through My Own Two Hands and Americana and the Song Academy, and many of them have come back to teach and mentor. SW: Yeah, that’s so cool. That’s probably what makes your festival so unique. So I guess the question out of that is, do you know of another festival that invests so heavily in the education and this kind of loop that you’re talking about? BT: That’s a good question. I know that there are many other festivals that have either kids

programming or kids’ camps before the festival, that kind of thing. I don’t know a lot that have partnerships with the local schools and a community of young people around the creative arts that has a similar or same kind of support. It’s not that they aren’t out there. I just don’t know about it. SW:

Kathy Deggendorfer, Former board member, community member Battle of Santiago, an Afro-Cuban band from Toronto, Canada, played the 2018 Sisters Folk Festival.

you’ve been so instrumental (haha) in making this festival what it is today. Can you give us an overview of your own trajectory with Sisters Folk Festival? BT: Well, thanks. And yet, I always have to be careful, you know, tooting my own horn because so many other people have been involved in so many different ways. Originally, I was a song contest finalist in the very first two years of the Sisters Folk Festival, and that’s how I got connected. In ‘95 I moved to Sisters. I was only involved as a song contest finalist the first couple of years, but I knew about it and then I started working in the schools in ’97, and I was doing contract work with them around cooperative team building using music and drumming and some retreats that I helped create. I was a connecting point when it was actually Philippe Malin who told

Kathy Deggendorfer, ‘There’s this guy in the schools, doing music stuff—you should talk to him.’ They came to me in the summer of 2000 and said, ‘We want you to help us start and create what we know we’d like to do, it’s called Americana Project.’ My feeling was originally, I dig the history and the social significance of roots music but I’m a singer/songwriter and a musician first. So we have to get instruments in the hands of kids and teach them to write songs and perform and record and that kind of thing. So in 2000 that was the goal. Sisters Folk Festival didn’t really have a budget for a person like me to do some of the work that I wanted to do. I had seen the song school at Rocky Mountain Folk Fest and I had attended a couple of years, late ‘90s. And so I came to Kathy asking if we could start our own songs school, and we did that at Caldera.

So I was sort of a connecting point between the Folk Festival and Caldera in starting the Americana Song Academy and then that was originally intended to be kind of like a master class for high school kids that were in our program. All these local kids were really into it and so you know, fortunately it was a creative sort of canvas for me, Kathy and others, including board members of the Folk Festival to just try different things. We started My Own Two Hands because we needed a fundraiser to help fund the programming that was originally called Painted Strings, where I found acoustic guitars that had been donated to a pawn shop. Kathy had been at the Albuquerque Balloon Festival—this is like the long story, but we said, well, why don’t we use guitars as a canvas for artists to create? And we did that with kids at the high school as well as professional artists and we raised almost $20,000, and Courtesy of Sisters Folk Festival

Singer-songwriter Joe Purdy plays the 2018 festival.

“The whole reason to get involved was to create a community that is a place I really wanted to live, and you can’t do that expecting everybody else to step up and do it for you, right? When we very first moved here, maybe 1997, I got on the Community Action team, and it was obvious that we needed something that was going to draw that creative community together. People always think of Sisters as being this place with lots of artists and you know, arts-based economy, but it’s because individuals are doing it. “There was no real place where people could gather so I started working on that—trying to think, oh, maybe we will get the City to donate some money and we’ll have a space, have an art center. And every model I looked at like that was one of those places where, when times got tough, people would say, ‘I’m not paying taxes so they can do, you know, knitting classes there.’ It really has to be independent. “So where Sisters Artworks is, [the building] sat on the market and sat on the market and sat on the market. And I finally, we just made an offer—my husband and I personally purchased the property and remodeled it and made it into Sisters Artworks, which was a place for different artists to come. And basically, the rent was subsidized, super-cheap rent, but it had a bunch of different communal spaces. One of the main tenants was the Sisters Folk Festival because I’d been on that board for years. And so just over the years as they grew, they would take over more and more of the office space. I got interested in creating the project that I’m doing now which is through the Roundhouse Foundation, the Pine Meadow Ranch. “Over the years, I saw how important it was that we had a really strong not-forprofit presence, organizations like Sisters Folk Festival, and the Sisters Rhythm and Blues festival, and the Quilt Show and the rodeo—that they all were really strong and focused on creating their own programming. And then also, a really strong for-profit sector, like all the different galleries and places that really support people being able to make a living through the arts. “I told the Folk Festival, I’m not doing this landlord for this particular space for the rest of my life, but let’s figure out a way that you can buy the building. We offered to sell them that building for the same price we paid for it from the city in 2005, and we had done a majority of the remodeling. We were able to find funding plus some so that they could purchase the building, and it worked out really well.”

Jayson Bowerman, Luthier Program volunteer, former SFF board member “I was participating in an Earth Day Cleanup with Tony Cosby, who’s the woodshop instructor at Sisters High School, and also the engineering instructor. He was putting the bug in my ear …’You know, what do you think the possibility would be of building guitars at the high school level?’ And I thought about it a little bit and I said, ‘Tony, I think you’re crazy. I don’t think you can really do it.’ He said, “What if you had all the support of a company like Breedlove [Guitars] and the resources and the know-how and stuff?’ “We started the [Luthier] program in 2006 and we’ve been building guitars at the high school ever since. “I think at last count there’s something in excess of 470 guitars that have been built by students at the high school. And for me, the coolest thing about the program is, it’s been supported by the Sisters Folk Festival—sort of the charitable fundraising arm, but it also brings in the brightest and best in the school as well as some kids that are on the margins—kids that might otherwise slip through the cracks. They never saw the relevance of math classes, for example. There’s a lot of trigonometry and other basic algebra problems in guitar building. And once you see the application, once you see a practical application for those types of skills, all of a sudden mathematics, you know, math classes, algebra, pre-algebra, trigonometry… those subject matters have a lot more relevance, and I had a lot of students come up to me and say, ‘I never really understood why we had to learn this stuff,’ and then they take this class and all of a sudden its clicks and you see the interest levels rise. Some kids that are on the margins of maybe dropping out or failing out come back into academic proficiency as a result of their engagement with a program like that, and that’s really, really gratifying.” Cou rte s

went, well, that totally works. Then we were able to buy better instruments and get kids more engaged. And so between the schools, the community and key people at the Folk Festival, we just kind of continued to evolve and adapt and create new programming that worked complementarily with one another. And so then all of a sudden there was this intergenerational thing that you know, community musicians and artists were going into the schools and knew about the kids who were evolving and developing as humans, that then would connect with those guys. And, you know, it was really cool to see friendships develop over generations, all around music.


SW: And then you started booking things and became artistic director, am I right?

BT: In 2003 I became the artistic director of the Folk Festival and I booked half of that, then went on to book 2004 through the present day. I was the executive director and artistic director from 2008 to 2014. We grew stages. Every festival and programming grew and we did stuff in the middle school. We started the Americana Project in the middle school in like 2005, that was kind of arts and music. Everything was evolving and developing and growing and actually getting bigger and kind of selling out every year. In 2014 we brought in a managing director to take care of the administrative and nonprofit side of things, and I went to creative director, so that I could concentrate on the artistic side. Then we hired Krista Munro as executive director in the summer of 2019. She’s now the executive director which I’m very grateful for because she’s excellent at a lot of

things and I can concentrate on the creative direction of the organization. SW: For those who just assume because there’s folk in the title, that that’s all the music there is. How do you push back against that sort of impression? BT: The most gracious way to push back is to say that pretty much all music can be considered folk music, and there’s a huge umbrella under Americana and roots music. That’s basically what we present; it’s Americana music, it’s roots music, but it’s super diverse and it’s everything from hip-hop to some world music to blues, rock. We definitely honor traditional music but it’s certainly not all you get at Sisters Folk Festival.

Dennis McGregor, SFF poster artist and musician “Sisters Folk Festival started in a very small way. There were just a handful of people involved with putting it on. It was truly a small-town event. It was so exciting when we first noticed people coming all the way from Bend! Soon we saw people coming from California and other far-off places and it was amazing. Throughout this early-growth period it became clear that this was a community-owned event and a bunch of smart and talented people started pitching in. Somehow the budget for talent grew and bookings became more impressive than ever. “I have designed posters for the festival for 20 years or so. The first one featured several different hands on the neck of a guitar. The body of the guitar was an old Martin and the headstock was that of the distinctive Breedlove, a valued sponsor. The concept was to show the evolution from traditional to contemporary. The hand on the old Martin was Doc Reno’s, a Bend violin maker who passed away shortly after. The hand at the top was a young woman’s, modeled by Valori Wells, who has gone on to fame as a fabric artist. Between was the hand of Jim Cornelius, co-founder of the festival, along with others. I tried to make this poster say something about what the festival was about. From there I did a series called ‘Local Treasures’ that featured local musicians as models. Then I went with animals, starting with ‘Buck.’ He had a pompadeer hairdo, a harmonics rack and an ear that featured a ‘deer ring.’ Our audience by that time needed no visual explanation of what a folk festival was. From then on the posters have been all about visual entertainment—quirky and fun. “I have benefitted tremendously as a local artist both with poster design and musical performances. I feel fortunate to be a community member in support of an organization that is all about something I truly love.”

The Electric Flavor of Boot Juice


f you’re looking for a good time this week, look no further. Coming from Northern California to Bend this Thursday is Boot Juice, a rocking seven-piece that brings a lot of energy and that big band feel to the stage. The band first came together with Connor Hurdt and Evan Daly, two childhood friends who have been playing music together since they were teenagers. Then it kept on evolving from there, as Boot Juice will usually perform with six to eight members on stage. In 2021 Boot Juice released its second album, the appropriately titled “Shifting Gears.” It featured bluesy roots rock, some country twang, laidback soul and more. My personal favorite off of the record is “Summer Camp,” a retro-sounding number that while a little mellow, still gets you grooving. The variety that Boot Juice plays with is what makes them special. Vocalist/art director Jess Stoll agrees. “Everyone really brings different things to the table musically, everything from bluegrass to metal to jazz and punk are weaved into the acoustic tapestry of the band,” she says. Currently Boot Juice is working on its third album, hopefully to be released sometime in the spring or summer of 2023. Learn more about this rockin’ big band in our Q&A with Stoll. Source Weekly: You have a big band and are known for lively shows. Could you describe each member’s playing style with one word each? Jess Stoll: One word is tough but here’s our best go at it! Connor Herdt: acoustic guitarist, vocals - rootsy Evan Daly: electric guitar, vocals shreddy Jess Stoll: vocals - soulful Brett Worley: bass - melodic Caleb Sanders: sax (alto + tenor) tasty Al Smith: drums, percussion thoughtful

Boot Juice is a lock to get you moving and grooving when the band takes the stage.

Micah Marmorstein: trumpet energetic Billy Thompson: drums, percussion- funky SW: I have to ask, what’s the story behind the name Boot Juice? JS: One of the original band members suggested the name and Connor was drawn to it, due to the image it evokes. Dancing up a sweat in boots on dirty barroom floors; it has a working-class ring to it. SW: You’re also the band’s art director. What does that entail for you?

JS: As the art director I curate the artwork for Boot Juice projects such as album covers, posters and merchandise. I am the primary illustrator and graphic designer and create the majority of our artwork, including the poster for our VTP show this week. SW: You guys released your album “Shifting Gears” last year. What were some of your favorite memories from recording that record? JS: “Shifting Gears” was an adventure for us. We were set to track in our producer’s studio in Los Angeles in March 2020, right as COVID quarantine began. We were actually down at the

studio when we received the news and Scott (our producer + engineer) had to immediately fly back home to the east coast, fearing airline shutdowns. After this, we had to get some crash course Pro Tools and recording lessons from Scott via Zoom and track everything at home. Luckily, our bassist also has a degree in studio recording, making the process easier. We learned a ton through the process! So, really, the whole process was memorable for us.

c i s u M Live on the

THE ROOF RABBITS 5:30PM - 6:30PM The Roof Rabbits is a three-piece punk band, hailing from Bend, Oregon. Well, that’s the simple way of putting it. Their influences come from all over the musical spectrum, drawing most of the sound from the years of punk’s infancy. Bands like the Stooges and Television, create a raw backbone for the Roof Rabbits, while later pop-punk and post-punk bands provide influence in much of the song structures. This eclectic concentration of all things that rock has been distilled by the rabbits, and mixed with real life experiences to form brutally honest songs that are addictive and unique.


7PM - 8PM They say good things

take time, and that rings true for The Old Revival. What originally started as a collection of solo songs written in a spare room by frontman Brandon Prinzing, later became the band’s first record.

Ecstatic Meditation Retreat Join on Oct



Fungi Festival Celebrates the Culinary Wealth of the Oregon Forests


The 6th annual fungi fest is set to ‘shroom on Oct. 8



By Damian Fagan


et set to explore the mystical and magical world of mushrooms during the Fungi Festival hosted by the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory and the Central Oregon Mushroom Club on Saturday, Oct. 8. There will be walks and talks, a mushroom ID station staffed by members of the Cascade Mycological Society, children’s activities and a mushroom display with different species of wild fungi labeled for viewing. “This is our 6th annual Fungi and Mushroom fest in cooperation with the Central Oregon Mushroom Club and is just a celebration of all things mushroom,” said Kelli Neumann, SNCO program director. “Mushroom people are a kick. They are my new favorite people. They are just so into understanding these crazy diverse organisms that exist in our forests.” Additional activities include cooking demos and a mushroom marketplace with vendors that will send you home prepped to grow your own edible mushrooms or ready to serve up some delicious fungi (see the website for some vendors accepting pre-orders for pick-up at the marketplace). For those who can’t wait, the Feast Food Company food truck will be serving up a mushroom-forward menu. “We are doing all these field trips to collect specimens for the display,” said Linda Gilpin, COMC president. “The number of specimens for the display is partially weather-dependent, especially if the weather has been dry.” Interested individuals should register with SNCO for one of the two Mushroom Foraging Field Trips on Friday, Oct. 7; space is limited to 12 people per trip. “We’ll also cover responsible harvesting tips on the field trip,” said Neumann. Gilpin recommends that prior to the field trip, people check their yard or park and try to identify the mushrooms on their own. “Part of the invitation to the public is to learn how to look at mushrooms to identify them,” said Gilpin. In addition to the field trips, Sunriver Lodge’s Executive Chef Joshua Hedrick will prepare a four-course dinner that features delicious mushrooms. Tickets for the 6pm dinner may also be purchased from the resort. Rob Glenney, Deschutes Gourmet Mushrooms owner, will host a session during the festival on growing gourmet mushrooms at home. “Mainly, it’s going to be on oyster mushrooms because those are the most commonly grown, novice mushrooms. They’re


The Sunriver Nature Center is hosting a fungi Saturday that features all things mushroom.

easy to grow, very productive and taste great,” said Glenney. In addition to the indoor variety, Glenney will talk about growing mushrooms outdoors. “That variety would be wine cap mushrooms, and those are good because folks can grow those here in Central Oregon.” Glenney will also bring several hundred pounds of mushrooms to the marketplace including several varieties of oyster mushrooms, chestnut mushrooms, lion’s manes and King trumpets, as well as ready-to-fruit blocks which sell out quickly. At 1:30 pm, Dr. Gurpreet Chopra, a psychiatrist from Bend, and J.E. “Jeff” Hyatt will present “Psilocybin Therapy,” a discussion of psilocybin chemistry, a review of academic psychedelic science, and the present-day inclusion of psychedelics as possible treatments in therapy, and as a benefit to those diagnosed with end-stage cancer. The presentation is timely as Measure 109, the ballot measure that passed in 2020, is in the developmental stages for creating a framework of psilocybin services. “Ariel Cowan from Oregon State Extension Service will be there with her microscope so you can really look at things, like spores, which are helpful for




identification,” said Gilpin. Cowan will give a presentation at 2:30pm about spores, the reproductive unit of a mushroom. In 2021, the festival attracted over 900 visitors and some of the vendors sold out their stock. Since parking is very limited at SNCO, there will be a shuttle from the Sunriver Marina to reduce parking along the road. “The parking area is about one-half mile from the Nature Center and we’ll have a shuttle going back and forth all day,” said Neumann. Attendees might also consider parking in the Sunriver Village or other public parking areas and access the Nature Center via the biking and walking trails. “The festival covers any interest people have in mushrooms, from cultivating mushrooms to identifying wild mushrooms,” Glenney. “No matter what it is you like about mushrooms, you’re going to get it covered there.”

Empathy Machine SCREEN The BendFilm Festival returns for its 19th year By Jared Rasic




his makes me feel incredibly old, but I’ve seen at least one movie at every BendFilm Festival since its inception 19 years ago. Having watched the fest go from folding chairs in Midtown Ballroom at midnight (checking out Ti West’s first feature, “The Roost”) to interviewing indie legends like John Sayles and Debra Granik, BendFilm’s evolution has only been a positive one. Don’t get me wrong, the early years of the festival were very exciting, as it felt like being on the ground floor of something lasting and important, but now being recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as an Oscar-qualifying event is an astounding glow-up. Under the executive direction of Todd Looby, the festival programming of Selin Sevinc and everyone from the venue managers to the screening committee, BendFilm has become more diverse, more inclusive and genuinely seeks out marginalized voices that deserve to be heard. Each year, there exists a very thin thread that thematically connects the features, documentaries and shorts. While I haven’t watched everything (although I will for next week’s issue, when I build a schedule of my favorite movies for those having trouble deciding what to come see), I found a powerful thread of empathy connecting the movies I’ve watched so far. Here’s a look at a few I’ve enjoyed.

“Sweetheart Deal:” An unflinching gut punch of a documentary following four sex workers in Seattle who are all deep in the throes of addiction, and the self-proclaimed helper who lives in a roadside RV, offering the women a supposed safe place to sleep and heal. This might sound like a depressing offering (and it does have its moments), but the film is actually profoundly empathetic and life affirming. Directors Elisa Levine and Gabriel Miller use such an unobtrusive verité method to the filmmaking that the entire documentary feels like an unprecedented view into a world we never see. Filmmakers will be in attendance. “Sam Now:” I would guess this documentary has a good chance of winning Best Documentary, Best Editing, the Audience Award or some combination of the three. This spellbinding doc follows director Reed Harkness, who spent 25 years of his life filming his younger brother Sam, eventually taking him on a 2,000 mile road trip looking for the mother who abandoned him as a teenager. “Sam Now” is a spellbinding look at generational trauma, the power of art and the cycles of life we can become trapped inside. Filmmakers will be in attendance.

“Pasang: In the Shadow of Everest:” This is an inspiring and breathtaking documentary about Pasang Lhamu Sherpa, a Nepalese woman on a tireless quest to be the first woman to summit Everest. Her story not only inspired people to follow in her footsteps, but reshaped the entire Sherpa culture forever. Documentaries this expansive are rare and wonderful. Filmmakers will be in attendance. Check back with the Source Weekly next week, when I’ll get granular with the festival schedule and break down exactly how to maximize your time to have as much fun over the weekend as possible. “Jacir:” Jacir is a Syrian refugee living in a rough area of Memphis, settled next to a racist and opioid-addicted older woman. This narrative feature is a powerful look at the refugee experience in the U.S. and an unflinching elegy to those society leaves to fester inside an unsparing opioid crisis. The lead performances by “The Sopranos’” Lorraine Bracco and Malek Rahbani are legitimately astounding and deserve to win every major award at the festival. Filmmakers will be in attendance.

AVATAR (RE-RELEASE): To get people hyped

for the new “Avatar” movie that’s coming out in December, Disney is re-releasing the original to remind people that it was a thing back in 2009. I haven’t seen it in years, but I remember “Avatar” having cool 3D and a plot that reminded me how much I love “Fern Gully.” Regal Old Mill

BARBARIAN: A woman arrives to her rental home but the dude that played Pennywise is already there. Most people would flee into the night, but then we wouldn’t have a movie, so she stays and deeply creepy horror ensues. This is a new horror classic from top to bottom. Regal Old Mill BROS: Finally, we have a big budget studio romantic comedy with and an all-LGBTQ+ central cast. This is the first time something like this has been done in history and with star Billy Eichner writing and Nicholas (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) Stoller, this could end up being this year’s comedy smash success. Regal Old Mill BULLET TRAIN: Why yes, I would like to see Brad Pitt fight a train full of assassins as it speeds across Japan. When you’ve got one of the co-creators of the “John Wick” franchise behind the camera, that means there will be just as many jokes as punches and “Bullet Train” is just as goofy as it is exciting. Regal Old Mill DC LEAGUE OF SUPER-PETS: This animated adventure sees The Rock and Kevin Hart as the voice of Superman and Batman’s respective dogs that must team up to save their respective Super Partners. Regal Old Mill DON’T WORRY DARLING: The media loves to talk

about all the drama involved with the making of this one, but completely forgets that 1) Olivia Wilde directed the charming and lovely “Booksmart,” 2) Florence Pugh is one of the best actresses of her generation and 3) that this movie is actually an original idea instead of a remake or comic book movie. I think it looks fantastic. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House, Odem Theater Pub, McMenamins

GOD’S COUNTRY: Thandiwe Newton vs trespassers

in a modern inversion of the American Western? Yeah, sign me up. The trailer for this is chilling. Sisters Movie House

THE GOOD HOUSE: Starring Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver, this romantic drama follows a New England realtor as she rekindles some long-dormant connection with her high school sweetheart. This definitely looks like one of those movies that people complain don’t get made anymore: something focused on adults dealing with real human emotions. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House


in love with the hilarious and touching YouTube videos of Marcel (voiced by the luminous Jenny Slate) when they came out a few years ago? Of course you did. Well, this feature length story about the little shell searching for his people is one of the sweetest

and kindest movies of the last few years. A joy. Tin Pan Theater

MOONAGE DAYDREAM: David Bowie. In IMAX. Glorious. Regal Old Mill

MY OLD SCHOOL: Go into this hybrid documentary knowing nothing except that it’s so much stranger than fiction. Will melt your brain and help redefine what humans will do to achieve their dreams. Tin Pan Theater PEARL: A darkly funny and disturbing melodrama that acts as a prequel to last year’s modern horror classic “X,” Ti West and Mia Goth’s “Pearl” is a perverted and bloody ‘Wizard of Oz.” Truly one of the most original experiences of the year. Regal Old Mill, Tin Pan Theater SEE HOW THEY RUN: An old-fashioned comedy/

mystery that plays like a madcap Agatha Christie whodunnit featuring Sam Rockwell, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody and Ruth Wilson? Yeah, that sounds like it was made just for me. Regal Old Mill, Sisters Movie House, Odem Theater Pub

THE SILENT TWINS: The true story of twin sisters living in a small town in Wales who would only communicate with each other. A deep dive into institutional racism, this is a remarkable story I had never heard of before now. Regal Old Mill SMILE: This new horror flick has a similar plot to “It Follows,” but looks just creepy enough to stand on its own. After a young woman goes through a traumatic incident, she starts getting stalked by a smiling creature that looks like people she knows. This has a hell of a trailer, so maybe we might have a solid horror flick on our hands. Regal Old Mill, Odem Theater Pub

Empty Bowls’ Event Sponsors

THE TERRITORY: A captivating look at the struggle

between indigenous tribes and developers as the locals try to save as much as they can of the Amazon. This really shows you the power of documentaries and their ability to effect change. Tin Pan Theater

TOP GUN: MAVERICK: There’s a reason why Tom

Cruise is the last true movie star and it’s mostly because he’s that perfect blend of creepy, weird and desperate to entertain us—and boy does he. Talk about a highway to the danger zone. Regal Old Mill

WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING: I really liked this book and actress Daisy Edgar-Jones is a fantastic new talent, so hopefully this Rural Noir murder mystery catches the imaginations of people unfamiliar with the story. If the reviews are accurate, the film doesn’t quite capture the same magic as the book does, but not many movies adapt novels very well in the first place. Regal Old Mill THE WOMAN KING: An historical drama/action movie about the Agojie, the all-female warrior unit that protected the African kingdom of Dahomey in the 1800’s. Featuring an absolutely fierce performance by Viola Davis, this is a solid if flawed epic. Regal Old Mill

An ode to our longtime naturalist contributor, who went out among the stars Sept. 22 By the Anderson Family

Jim Anderson with one of his beloved owls. Anderson passed away Sept. 22.

hawks, owls, cormorants and osprey. Jim worked for the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry in Portland as a naturalist for several years, implementing outdoor education and scientific activities for families, students and teachers. He took hundreds of children on field trips throughout the Northwest in the OMSI Space Cruiser bus. He was also involved in operating OMSI’s science camps. He then became the director of the Children’s Zoo and Conservation and Education Programs in what is now the Oregon Zoo in Portland. Jim has been involved in studying and banding raptors in Central Oregon for over 50 years. He and wife

Sue recently completed their part of a 10-year survey of the Golden eagles in Oregon that took them to many remote places in Oregon’s outback where they loved to spend their time. Jim has been writing a nature column for “The Nugget Newspaper” in Sisters and the “Source Weekly" of Bend for many years. He is also the author of a book, “Tales from a Northwest Naturalist." He was a selftaught naturalist. (In his case a “Naturalist” is a biologist who flunked chemistry.) Jim traveled to Australia and lived with Aborigines in the Northern Territory for a time and studied spiders in Melbourne. He was the manager of the Nature Conservancy’s Ramsey Canyon Preserve in Southeast Arizona for three years. He then originated the nature programs at Sunriver in the early ‘70s, working with John Gray and the original landscape architect, Bob Royston. He conducted Elder Hostel programs for Central Oregon Community College, Sunriver Nature Center and Southern Oregon University for several years, and enjoyed working with OPB and the crew with “Oregon Field Guide.” One of his favorite activities was taking a Great Horned Owl into a classroom and introducing children to the wide world of nature. He died, reluctantly, on Sept 22 and his final resting place will be in full view of his beloved Fourt. Rock in Central Oregon. A celebration of life is planned for the near future. Those wishing to honor Jim with a donation can send it to the Deschutes Land Trust, one of his beloved organizations for preserving Central Oregon special lands for future generations.

The Cult of Deb

Vigil planned for Deb Auchery, founder of Cult of Tuck By Nicole Vulcan “That’s kind of what all of my stand-up is revolved around—taking the darkness and all those not-sogreat things in my life and turning it into something that’s fun and hilarious, and that people can relate to, and heal from. It’s also partially about educating people about the transitioning process and letting them hear, you know, the dances from a trans person herself. “It’s something that everyone’s able to relate to— everyone goes through breakups. Everyone’s gone through puberty. Everyone’s dated, but I get to share my experiences during my unique ones, and I think that helps me feel a little bit less alone and less isolated with the trans experience.” Back in May, Central Oregon drag queen Deb Auchery, also known as Alex Simpson, talked to the Source Weekly about her transition and how doing comedy

had helped her through. Deb died suddenly last week, shocking the community and leaving many to weigh in about the impact her life and work had on their lives. The Source Weekly is planning a tribute for Deb in a future issue, but in the meantime, a vigil is planned this Friday.

Community Candlelight Vigil for Deb Auchery Fri., Sept. 30, 6-9pm Peace Corner, corner of Greenwood and Wall St., Bend Speakers, music and snacks and beverages provided.


Jim was born James Oscar Anderson Jr. on March 27, 1928, in West Haven, Connecticut and raised on a small farm. For 16 years, he never had cold hands or a cold forehead—thanks to his grandfather teaching him how to milk cows. He leaves wife Sue, who has lived with him for nearly 50 years, six children: Kristen, Dean, Ross, Reuben, Caleb and Miriam, 16 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. It was on the farm that Jim learned the Conservation Ethic at the age of 11. “You eat what you shoot,” his grandfather said, as he inspected a great horned owl Jim had shot and taught him the positive role of owls in the environment. It was also in West Haven that Jim began a long love affair with airplanes and flying. He used a horse-drawn mowing machine to cut the grass on a small airport close by, and took his wages in flying time. (This experience eventually led him to become an FAA Certified Commercial Pilot and flight instructor in gliders). Jim rolled into Bend on his Harley-Davidson in September of 1951, after spending four years in the U.S. Navy serving on sub-chasers in the Caribbean. The day after he arrived in Bend he was fighting forest fires, using his motorcycle for transportation on mountain roads. In the mid-‘50s Jim spent time with Fort Rock, Oregon, horseman Reub Long, author of “The Oregon Desert,” to see if he wanted to be a buckaroo. After pulling calves at 16-below zero, he decided he didn’t. Jim logged, mined pumice and studied coyotes— especially the response to poisons (and subsequent impact on non-target species, such as raptors) and what effect “control” had on reducing livestock damages. He also became involved with the Oregon State Police and Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, apprehending criminals shooting raptors and other wildlife. In later years, he contributed to studies for ODFW on bats, eagles,



more than your average tree OUTSIDE Aspen, Glorious fall foliage is just one benefit By Sarah Mowry

This aspen grove is on fire! With color, that is. No matter the viewpoint, aspen provide a fall bounty of beauty.

The Brookings Institute tracked student achievement, showing a sharp decline in math scores at the start of the pandemic.


very fall the aspen trees of Central Oregon light up the forest with their brilliant changing colors. There’s just something about their stark white bark, round yellow and orange leaves and delicate quaking sound that is so enchanting. But, did you know that aspens are more than your average tree? They provide year-round benefits to wildlife and people. Quaking aspens (Populus tremuloides) are the most widely distributed trees in North America. Though they are more common in the Rocky Mountains and into Canada, eastern and Central Oregon are on the edge of their range. Here they are most often found in near rivers or creeks, along the edge of meadows, or in openings in the forest. Aspens can grow up to 40 feet tall with trunks as large as 10 inches. Individual trees will live for 100-150 years, but because they are clonal and reproduce via root sprouts the larger clone can be thousands of years old. Aspen groves from the same clone will even change color at the same time each fall! Aspen and aspen stands are used by a wide range of wildlife and are considered biological hotspots— places rich in biological diversity. Their dense thickets provide cover and hiding spots for calving deer and elk. Woodpeckers use aspen trunks to create nesting cavities. Songbirds, bats, beaver, black bear and other wildlife nest and forage in aspen stands. In the winter, aspen stands provide warmer locations for wildlife to escape wind, snow and extreme cold. Aspen trees also play an important role in our water cycle. Their dense shady stands collect and store snowpack longer than surrounding conifer stands. In the winter and spring, aspen slowly release their snowpack stored in these shady groves, adding cool water into our streams and groundwater. This is especially important for communities that rely on snowmelt for their water supply.

Aspen trees like disturbance and are good at colonizing a site after something like a fire moves through the forest. While the mature trees with their thin bark will often die in a fire, the roots below ground remain and will re-sprout in abundance. According to the U.S. Forest Service, as many as 50,000 to 100,000 can sprout on a single acre after a fire! Today, aspens are very limited in their range in Oregon. It’s estimated that 70% of the aspen woodlands in southeastern Oregon have been lost since the 1800s. So, what’s causing the decline? Fire suppression and conifer growth, for one. Aspens evolved with fire and need frequent fires to reinvigorate their groves and stimulate the growth of new trees to replace the relatively shorter lived mature ones. Without fire, aspen stands tend to be overtaken by conifer trees, eventually blocking the light that sun-loving aspen need to thrive. Browse pressure can also make it hard for aspen stands to thrive. Those thousands of little suckers can only take so much munching from deer, elk and livestock. That’s why you’ll often see aspen stands around Oregon fenced in to give them a chance to get established. Finally, climate change is one of the biggest threats to aspen. The ongoing intense drought and lack of precipitation in the West stresses these moisture-loving trees, making them more susceptible to insects and other diseases. That’s why local land stewards like the Forest Service and Deschutes Land Trust are working to conserve and restore the aspen stands we have today, so they can thrive and hopefully adapt to a climate-changed future. Aspen restoration includes reintroducing fire where appropriate or removing encroaching conifers to let in more sunlight. Aspen caging or fencing also helps limit the intense browsing so young aspen can grow strong. So, this fall when you are out and about enjoying the changing colors, be sure to take some time to appreciate all that aspens offer to the natural world. Their stunning yellows and oranges are only the tip of the iceberg!

2022 “Fleeting Time” with hometown Olympian Ben Ferguson Iconic snowboarding movie world premiere


end’s very own Ben Ferguson, Olympic snowboarder and Winter X Games athlete, is releasing his film, “Fleeting Time” this Saturday with Homestead Creative. Co-produced by Red Bull Media, the world premiere is happening right here in Bend, at the Tower Theatre on Oct. 1 at 7pm. From Olympic halfpipe athlete to famous freerider, “Fleeting Time” follows Ferguson’s excursions with fellow Olympians and boarders on the big mountain powder. This film is a two-year collection of snowboarding shots. Full of action, creative shots and epic music, this is a highly anticipated movie release in the winter sport world. Oregonians are sure to recognize two of the mountains where Ferguson and his friends shot film and did some halfpipe sessions — Mt. Bachelor and Mt. Hood. “I remember being a little kid, going to video premieres, watching the older dudes shred and being inspired to be a snowboarder,” Ferguson said. Full of legendary lines and insane tricks, “Fleeting Time” is a classic snowboard movie, but it also takes time to appreciate the beauty of nature in scenic shots of various mountains. “Fleeting Time” is reminiscent of old, vintage snowboarding movies, Ferguson said. Ferguson said the soundtrack is key in a snowboarding film, and he wants people adding the “Fleeting Time” soundtrack to their snowboarding/skiing playlists. When selecting songs for the movie, he found ones that “really packed a punch” and created the perfect vibe for the feeling of the visual content. “I want Bendites to come out and enjoy the movie,” Ferguson said. “I’m super excited to show it to everyone in my hometown, and I wouldn’t want to premiere it anywhere else.” The Tower Theatre will be full of adventure-seeking winter athletes for the screening— friends of Ferguson. Joining at the premier will be 2018 Olympic Slopestyle Gold Medalist Red Gerard, Travis Rice, Hailey Langland, as well as local riders Jared Elston, Mason Lemery, Austin Smith and Curtis Ciszek. Get ready for shred season with “Fleeting Time.” Tower Theatre

The Confusing Case of Cold IPAs





No one argues they’re not cold. But are they IPAs? By Brian Yaeger


Un sp

la sh

f you’re the type of craft beer drinker who casually peruses tap lists but really, you’re just searching for the IPAs, you’ve possibly come across something called a cold IPA. Instead of that being something darker and maltier in the vein of a Winter IPA, it’s actually lighter and drier. In short, it’s an India Pale Ale that’s been fermented with a lager yeast strain instead of an ale yeast strain, and like lagers, they’re fermented at cooler temperatures. If you’re asking, “Wouldn’t that make it a lager instead of an ale?” you’re not alone. But words have always changed meaning and marketing descriptions always keep up with the times, so all I can tell you is, a cold IPA is crafted in nearly the same way as the short-lived India Pale Lager style from the aughts, but updated for the ‘20s. Moreover, just as New England-style or hazy IPAs are marked by a sweeter juiciness and rely on what’s called late-addition hops to emphasize fruitiness while de-emphasizing early-addition hops that contribute bitterness, dry and crisp cold IPAs are a reaction to hazies. The contemporary style’s origins only date back to October, 2018, when brewmaster Kevin Davey devised it at Wayfinder Beer in Portland. The paradox of cold IPA is that it both promotes “juicy,” fruit-forward notes courtesy of trendier, tropical hop flavors while also suppressing fruity esters— aromatic compounds—contributed by ale yeast strains. In the ensuing four years, the style has begun to take flight around the Pacific Northwest and has reached not only the East Coast, but overseas craft breweries as well. Yet it has scarcely graced Central Oregon brewery draft lines. Silver Moon released Cosmic Chill Cold IPA earlier this year and according to brewery owner James Watts, “It was a big hit that we’re adding it to our core year-round lineup for 2023.” Perhaps less of a hit? The style name. When it returns—in cans next time—it will simply be called Cosmic Chill IPA. McMenamins Old St. Francis School, Crux Fermentation Project, and 10 Barrel are among the other few local breweries that dabbled in the style. Wild


Ride brewed a one-off called Crazy Eight Cold IPA and its ephemeral Crazy Fresh, a fresh-hopped cold IPA, is currently available. Andrew Rhine of Cascade Lakes Brewing Company left the door open to brewing a cold IPA in the near future. So, too, has GoodLife co-owner Ty Barnett, who pointed out that friend-of-the-brewery, G. Love (during a conversation while Love was in town performing at Hayden Homes Amphitheater) said he’d like to see his next duet with GoodLife be a cold IPA. More telling, though, is what Barnett added. “For now, we are sticking to traditional lager styles.” He rattled off examples such as GoodLife’s Pilsner, Helles and Oktoberfest. That’s what Franklin Gordon, the beer buyer at Third Street Beverage and a Certified Cicerone, likes to hear. “As a beer educator and someone who works in sales, I can’t get behind the cold IPA moniker. All beers are either ales or lagers, and the one and only differentiator of the two is which yeast strain was used to brew it.” He further stressed, “IPA stands for India Pale Ale and if you brew a beer with a lager yeast, as the vast majority of cold IPAs do, and call it an IPA, it is inherently wrong…You end up with a trend in beer production and consumption that is detrimental to the industry. Now, people drinking beer often couldn’t care less, and distributors love a hot, new beer trend, but brewers should know better than to get behind what is essentially an advertising gimmick.” It’s hard to argue against Gordon’s point. But the beer industry prefers to sell beer than get involved in pedantic arguments. Boss Rambler’s Matt Molletta noted that his brewery has, indeed, brewed cold IPAs but has possibly already moved past them “like the Brut IPA fad,” referring to the evanescent style from 2018 that, like cold IPA, offered a drier drinking experience but achieved it through enzymes rather than lager yeast. Because IPA is the most consumer-driven style, and consumers also want the new hotness, right now that may be cold IPA, but from bitter West Coast IPAs to juicy East Coast IPAs, there will always be something new under the IPA umbrella.

ASTROLOGY By Rob Brezsny LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The Libran approach to fighting for what’s right shouldn’t involve getting into loud arguments or trying to manipulate people into seeing things your way. If you’re doing what you were born to do, you rely on gentler styles of persuasion. Are you doing what you were born to do? Have you become skilled at using clear, elegant language to say what you mean? Do you work in behalf of the best outcome rather than merely serving your ego? Do you try to understand why others feel the way they do, even if you disagree with their conclusions? I hope you call on these superpowers in the coming weeks. We all need you to be at the height of your potency.



SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “One bad apple

spoils the rest” is an idiom in the English language. It refers to the idea that if one apple rots as it rests in a pile of apples, the rest will quickly rot, too. It’s based on a scientific fact. As an apple decays, it emanates the gas ethylene, which speeds up decay in nearby apples. A variant of this idiom has recently evolved in relation to police misconduct, however. When law enforcement officials respond to such allegations, they say that a few “bad apples” in the police force aren’t representative of all the other cops. So I’m wondering which side of the metaphor is at work for you right now, Scorpio. Should you immediately expunge the bad apple in your life? Or should you critique and tolerate it? Should you worry about the possibility of contamination, or can you successfully enforce damage control? Only you know the correct answer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Of all the signs in the zodiac, you Sagittarians know best how to have fun even when life sucks. Your daily rhythm may temporarily become a tangle of boring or annoying tasks, yet you can still summon a knack for enjoying yourself. But let me ask you this: How are your instincts for drumming up amusement when life doesn’t suck? Are you as talented at whipping up glee and inspiration when the daily rhythm is smooth and groovy? I suspect we will gather evidence to answer those questions in the coming weeks. Here’s my prediction: The good times will spur you to new heights of creating even more good times.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): More than you might realize, people look to you for leadership and regard you as a role model. This will be extra true in the coming weeks. Your statements and actions will have an even bigger impact than usual. Your influence will ripple out far beyond your sphere. In light of these developments, which may sometimes be subtle, I encourage you to upgrade your sense of responsibility. Make sure your integrity is impeccable. Another piece of advice, too: Be an inspiring example to people without making them feel like they owe you anything. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Rapper-songwriter Nicki Minaj says, “You should never feel afraid to become a piece of art. It’s exhilarating.” I will go further, Aquarius. I invite you to summon ingenuity and joy in your efforts to be a work of art. The coming weeks will be an ideal time for you to tease out more of your inner beauty so that more people can benefit from it. I hope you will be dramatic and expressive about showing the world the full array of your interesting qualities. PS: Please call on the entertainment value of surprise and unpredictability.

Davies declared, “One learns one’s mystery at the price of one’s innocence.” It sounds poetic, but it doesn’t apply to most of you Pisceans—especially now. Here’s what I’ve concluded: The more you learn your mystery, the more innocent you become. Please note I’m using the word “innocence” in the sense defined by author Clarissa Pinkola Estés. She wrote: “Ignorance is not knowing anything and being attracted to the good. Innocence is knowing everything and still being attracted to the good.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19): When you Aries folks are at your best, you are drawn to people who tell you exactly what they think, who aren’t intimidated by your high energy, and who dare to be as vigorous as you. I hope you have an array of allies like that in your sphere right now. In my astrological opinion, you especially need their kind of stimulation. It’s an excellent time to invite influences that will nudge you out of your status quo and help you glide into a new groove. Are you willing to be challenged and changed? TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Author Toni Morrison thought that beauty was “an absolute necessity” and not “a privilege or an indulgence.” She said that “finding, incorporating, and then representing beauty is what humans do.” In her view, we can’t live without beauty “any more than we can do without dreams or oxygen.” All she said is even truer for Tauruses and Libras than the other signs. And you Bulls have an extra wrinkle: It’s optimal if at least some of the beauty in your life is useful. Your mandate is summed up well by author Anne Michaels: “Find a way to make beauty necessary; find a way to make necessity beautiful.” I hope you’ll do a lot of that in the coming weeks.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Philosopher Alfred North Whitehead said, “It requires a very unusual mind to make an analysis of the obvious.” I nominate you to perform that service in the coming days, both for yourself and your allies. No one will be better able than you to discern the complexities of seemingly simple situations. You will also have extraordinary power to help people appreciate and even embrace paradox. So be a crafty master of candor and transparency, Gemini. Demonstrate the benefits of being loyal to the objective evidence rather than to the easy and popular delusions. Tell the interesting truths. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancerian poet Lucille Clifton sent us all an invitation: “Won’t you celebrate with me what i have shaped into a kind of life? i had no model. i made it up here on this bridge between starshine and clay, my one hand holding tight my other hand.” During October, fellow Cancerian, I propose you draw inspiration from her heroic efforts to create herself. The coming weeks will be a time when you can achieve small miracles as you bolster your roots, nourish your soulful confidence, and ripen your uniqueness. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Dear Rob the Astrologer: This morning I put extra mousse on my hair and blow-dried the hell out of it, so now it is huge and curly and impossibly irresistible. I’m wearing bright orange shoes so everyone will stare at my feet, and a blue silk blouse that is much too high-fashion to wear to work. It has princess seams and matches my eyes. I look fantastic. How could anyone of any gender resist drinking in my magnificence? I realize you’re a spiritual type and may not approve of my showmanship, but I wanted you to know that what I’m doing is a totally valid way to be a Leo. —Your Leo teacher Brooke.” Dear Brooke: Thank you for your helpful instruction! It’s true that I periodically need to loosen my tight grip on my high principles. I must be more open to appreciating life’s raw feed. I hope you will perform a similar service for everyone you encounter in the coming weeks. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): How to be the best Virgo you can be during the coming weeks: 1. You must relish, not apologize for, your precise obsessions. 2. Be as nosy as you need to be to discover the core truths hidden beneath the surface. Risk asking almost too many questions in your subtle drive to know everything. 3. Help loved ones and allies shrink and heal their insecurities. 4. Generate beauty and truth through your skill at knowing what needs to be purged and shed. 5. Always have your Bullshit Detector with you. Use it liberally. 6. Keep in close touch with the conversations between your mind and body.

Editor’s note: This is the first edition of Dr. Joshua Phillips’ new column, which will appear quarterly here in the Columns section of the Source Weekly. ur ability to heal from illness and remain in a state of health is legendary. We often take for granted our health and well-being, or when illness arises, we tend to look only at physical and physiologic issues as the problem. When it comes to health, all too commonly we tend to stay focused on diet, supplements and medications and exercise (which of course are all important), sometimes forgetting the impact mental and emotional well-being have on physical health. At this point it might have become cliché, but without a doubt our emotional and mental states are informing every cell in our bodies and contributing vastly to all aspects of our physical health. Before you brush this off as hyperbole, consider the following: Our endocrine (hormones) and nervous systems are responding in real time, every moment of the day, to both the environment around us, as well as our internal mental and emotional states. Hormones in our brain, our gut, our adrenals, etc. are constantly in flux, based on many factors relating to our experience of the world around us. This dynamic flux of hormones and nervous system input have a big impact on the function and physiology of every cell in our bodies. Moving through life, for example, in a state that is primarily wrought with stress, anxiety or unhappiness lends to a hormonal and biochemical landscape that is more supportive of inflammation, a weakened immune system and to stress hormones that can contribute to many chronic health conditions. Without trivializing the complexity that often accompanies dealing with stressful and serious circumstance in life, or complicated emotional states, we can also look toward some very fundamental aspects of the “mind-body” experience that support health and vitality. Building into our lives opportunities to bring just a little more levity, joy and light-heartedness can have tremendous impacts on our body’s capacity to heal and stay healthy. Laughter, play and creativity are among the most reliable and important aspects of the human experience that hold promise for contributing greatly to health and vitality. These important

and fundamental human experiences should be prioritized and added to every treatment plan we get from our doctors—both as preventative medicine, as well as for real health conditions we are dealing with. Not surprisingly, a search into the body of research on laughter and play as medicine reveals a lot of evidence for the benefits of preventing and addressing illness. In fact, heart disease, which happens to be the leading cause of death in the U.S., appears to be closely connected to our mental and emotional state. One study showed that individuals with heart disease were 40% less likely to laugh in a variety of situations, compared to people of the same age without heart disease. Conversely, a study on the National Institutes of Health PubMed server concluded that “daily frequency of laughter is associated with lower prevalence of cardiovascular diseases. The association could not be explained by confounding factors, such as depressive symptoms.” This study went on to suggest that “laughter is increasingly recognized for its potential health benefits, including ameliorating symptoms of depression, dementia, and insomnia. Several studies have reported beneficial effects of laughter on biomarkers, such as markers of immune function and blood sugar.” Additionally, studies on hypertension (high blood pressure) suggest that study subjects that engaged in laughter, and another study that looked at the effects of playing and listening to music had a universally positive impact on blood pressure. One study showed up to a 10-point improvement of systolic and diastolic pressures solely from the experience of music and laughter. The bottom line is that a truly holistic approach to health and well-being should always address not just the ever-important diet, exercise and medicine components, but also our states of mental and emotional health. Even during stressful or difficult times, we can stretch ourselves, prioritizing opportunities every day to laugh and play. Get creative, find some cheesy jokes to tell your partner, or watch some stand-up comedy that you know will make you laugh. Let yourself have that feeling, at least as often as is possible. Your body will thank you for it.

What Every “For Sale by Owner” Wishes They Knew

Otis Craig


Broker, CRS

Why hiring a real estate agent saves money, time & peace of mind average buyer is willing to accept at a certain price point. In today’s market, selling a home requires more than a "For Sale" sign. A successful transaction netting the highest profit possible requires a smart marketing plan that reaches the right buyers. FSBOs may not have the time or resources to invest in the type of tactics a licensed real estate agent would put to work on day one. According to a recent study by NAR, 34% of FSBOs said they did not actively market their home. Beyond pricing right and marketing the home, there is a great deal of legal liability in the real estate transaction. Even the slightest unintentional error or omission can put a seller in legal peril. A licensed real estate broker is insured against such errors and omissions, and has the knowledge, training and office support to avoid such mistakes. We have access to well-written, legal contracts and forms that offer the most protection to all parties in the transaction. For example, not disclosing a known issue, even if it has been repaired and the seller doesn’t even think it could be pertinent information at the time of sale, could put the FSBO seller in legal jeopardy down the line. Bottom line? Most FSBO sellers think they’re saving 2-6% in commission by not listing with an agent. In reality, historical data shows that listing with an agent will net you 10% to 30% more on your sale price. Not to mention, time savings and the peace of mind that you are not putting yourself in a vulnerable legal situation.

ccasionally, sellers decide to represent themselves in the sale of their home. They typically point to cost savings as the motivating factor. They think that by selling their property on their own, they will save thousands of dollars in commission payments owed to a real estate agent. But what a For Sale By Owner, or FSBO, might not know is that they are more likely to lose money (and time) navigating the transaction themselves. In fact, according to Collateral Analytics, National Association of Realtors and Clever Real Estate, FSBO homes sold for an average of 5.5-26% less than comparable homes listed on the MLS. And 73% of buyers think either themselves or their agent could out-negotiate a FSBO seller. This means that often, FSBO will make less on the home than they would with a licensed real estate agent even with an average commission payout. Why? FSBOs create an opportunity for buyers to low-ball and get a house for much less than the seller could have netted by listing a real estate broker. For a FSBO to succeed and not fall prey to low-ball offers, they must know the market and get their pricing just right. This is a difficult endeavor. Online valuation sites, like Zillow, offer an estimated home value based on a range. But these sites cannot take important factors into account, like location, views, road noise, renovations, etc. Whereas a real estate broker looks to the relevant key data points for the local market and considers positive and negative factors of a specific home, keeping in mind what buyers in the market are looking for and what the
