Sept. 10 is World Suicide Awareness Day—a topic we take on with this week’s cover story. Exploring suicide and suicide prevention is no far-off topic; Deschutes County had the fifth-highest rate of suicide in Oregon in 2018, while being only the seventh-most-populous county. As we dove into the issue, I learned about the Recommendations for Reporting on Suicide—a set of guidelines that teach reporters the do’s and don’ts of covering suicide and speak to the assertion that “covering suicide carefully, even briefly, can change public misperceptions and correct myths.” The websites and offer helpful information for those who want to learn more. One of the biggest recommendations from local experts: Sharing the hotline number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255). See even more resources on this week’s Feature page. – Nicole Vulcan, Editor

It’s Time to Tip the Scales for the Bend Central District










One man’s five-year quest to unc over the secrets of how Bill Gat es, Lady Gaga, Warren Buffet, Steven Spielberg and a dozen more of the world’s most successful peo ple launched their careers.

or the past several years, we have followed the advent of the Bend Central District with interest and enthusiasm. The potential of re-developing an area close to downtown Bend to make it an attractive, walkable place for people to live and work is something we can get behind. Bend is growing and rents in the downtown area—for both residential and business purposes—are high, signaling that there’s immense potential in areas that touch that downtown core. Add in the fact that a good portion of central Bend lies within a federally designated Opportunity Zone—which affords tax benefits to investors that invest in those areas— and, in theory, we have a recipe for significant development, improvement and growth in an area such as the Bend Central District. Yet, in spite of the enthusiasm around the BCD, not much has happened in the years since its advent. The lack of significant development in the area has put a big spotlight on the few developers who have tried, or continue to try to do something in that area. Jake Ertle, co-owner of the property on Third Street that currently houses The Brew Shop and Platypus Pub, has been the target of much scrutiny in the past several years, after revealing an initial plan that would have installed two drive-thru restaurants in place of the current building. Following much public input against that plan, Ertle and his team went back to the drawing board, recently revealing a new plan that includes four retail spaces—one of which includes a drive-thru coffee shop. Ertle received approval for the project, titled Third Street Marketplace, on Sept. 3. Central Oregon LandWatch initially opposed Ertle’s new plan, writing in a letter that the plan would “inhibit its (BCD’s) transformation into a vibrant, healthy, and resilient mixed-use neighborhood.” Following the Sept. 3 decision, Moey Newbold of COLW told the Source they had no plans to appeal. Ertle also told the Source that shortly after purchasing the property in 2016, he explored building a mixeduse building on that property, but costs associated with developing it made that plan impossible. His team found that building only apartments “might” pencil out, but the current BCD code doesn’t allow for that type of building. Ertle added that he supports the vision of the BCD, but that the “growing pains” associated with the code currently mean the area is seeing very limited development.

A March 2019 report titled “Developer Interviews,” compiled for Bend’s Urban Renewal Advisory Board, laid out the challenges developers faced when aiming to develop in that area, including high construction costs and “commercial zones with front setbacks, high parking standards and prescriptive use mix requirements that make mixed-use or apartment construction cost infeasible.” And then there’s the varying interpretations of what can and should be allowed in the BCD. Les Schwab Tire Centers’ application to move from its current location on Franklin Avenue to Third Street was recently denied by the Planning Commission, which said no because the BCD is aimed at moving beyond “auto-dependent” uses for the area. Before that, city staff recommended allowing it, because the move wasn’t going to add more “auto-dependent” use to the area. In theory, the move would free up space along Franklin that might be more ripe for residential or mixed-use purposes than Third Street. While that project was something of an exception since it involved moving an existing use within the BCD, it highlights the highly varied opinions and findings that local leaders can have about what can and should be done around Third Street. Ultimately, the Bend City Council could decide whether to allow that project to move forward. We share Central Oregon LandWatch’s vision of a “healthy, resilient mixed-use neighborhood” for the BDC—but three years in, it’s clear that things aren’t happening as fast as they could be in a ripe Opportunity Zone. City staffers have been tasked with taking a look at the BCD Overlay Code, and examining what barriers are holding developers back from executing on the vision for that neighborhood. City planners delivered a series of recommendations to the Bend Urban Renewal Advisory Board Aug. 13, recommending a relaxation of the current “prescriptive mixed-use requirements,” as well as amendments that “simplify and reduce parking requirements for small lots” and allowing for other amendments that “maximize buildable space for private development while balancing public needs such as streetscape needs.” These development code amendments should move forward, in order to achieve the right balance that sees the area developed and more housing built—while also making it the vibrant neighborhood locals want and need. 




Recent comments by one of Trump’s cabinet about the real meaning of “bring me your tired, your poor” on Statue of Liberty reminded me how Canada and Australia, to mention a couple, have strict requirements for immigration in that when you apply to enter, you need to prove you have a skill and/or financial resources so as to not become a burden on the rest of the citizens of those countries. There is a connection with overpopulation which needs to be looked at and it boils down to quality, in terms of skill, for example, and quantity, which simply means there are too many humans on this planet—and our presence and activities are driving this world’s ecosystem into overwhelm and degradation. The best remedy to this issue is to slow the birth rate. It’s a win-win without any partisan component because slowing the birth rate has only positive results for every form of life in the ecosystem. Fewer people eases the crush of numbers, which in itself overburdens already stressed processes everywhere. Slowing the birth rate is consistent with maintaining a common sense style of life and contributes to stewardship of our home world Earth. Thanks for the opportunity to share my views. —Tom Fosdick

I don’t understand what reasoning the opposition to cannabis farming is operating from. Cannabis products are changing peoples’ lives for the better. Business is booming and Oregon has been at the forefront of the wave of innovation and growth. Central Oregon has the potential to not only make a lot of money through sales and tax revenue, but to be a part of a tremendous expansion in the market for herbal medicine and other hemp products. I find it shocking that people want to stop farmers from growing it in Deschutes County. #1. Farmers can grow what they want on their land. #2. Who are ya’ll to say we have enough land in hemp? This world needs hemp. Lots and lots of hemp. Also, THC producing plants are greatly needed. It is medicine. The world needs this medicine. Please don’t fight it. It is a good thing. Stop wasting our leaders’ time on this subject that has already been voted on, with widespread support. —Kay Bee


The majority of tax payers receive little value from elected officials and bureaucracy at every level. Recently, the city council washed their hands in legalese to explain why they were impotent to do anything about a cell tower being built too close to a school yard, because there were no protests within the legally required comment period. Tough luck parents were not notified of the plans in time to register well founded concerns about the impact on the growth, development and overall well-being of their children. Another case in point, the neighborhood I live in has protested for months, concessions given to a developer to have things go his way, to hell with the residents. Result is a smidgen of concession for us, a sweet pot for the developer. Something went awry a long time ago that permits elected officials and government policy to ignore what is best for the majority of residents, who pay, pay, pay with taxes, and the benefit goes to those who know how to seduce the decision makers. No wonder people give up protesting when they are met with such sophisticated exploitation. It is frustrating to me the many times I am hoodwinked into voting for manipulative people who, moments after they are in office, begin to use their office for personal gain. I hope one day an app is invented to detect bullshit. —Pat Homeyer

I have nothing but love for all dogs and most dog owners. That said, and with only good intentions, I am going to go straight to the third rail of dog-related conversation: leashes. Without hesitation, I strongly recommend that the default position for dog owners in public spaces be on-leash. In addition, I strongly recommend the default position in wild spaces and riparian restoration areas (like much of Deschutes streambank in the Old Mill) is that they be avoided when walking your dog. As one example, please don’t let your dog swim in the Habitat zone protected for wildlife located just downstream from the Colorado bridge, along the east bank. On trail in designated areas? Absolutely! Off leash in designated areas? Absolutely! There is an excellent whitepaper titled “The impacts of dogs on wildlife and water quality: A literature review,” compiled in 2016 for Portland’s Metro parks and natural areas agency. This is a must-read for all, including dog owners, to help with our collective understanding of the role and relationship of our canine companions in both natural and man-made communities. Please note that I am not recommending any new laws or policies. They are already on the books. I am just hopeful for more understanding, compassion and empathy, along with happy dogs and dog owners, and a healthy environment. —Kevin Tanski

Today we hiked the Swampy Lake Loop Trail. We saw no other hikers and no other footprints. Just mountain bike tracks. When we reached the Flagline section, we encountered a steady stream of “downhillers” who were shuttled to the top and were speeding downward. We had several scary, near collisions with them as they careened down. When we said something to one of the crazies, he said that this was advertised as a “high speed downhill” ride. They also had the attitude that we didn’t belong there and that we were ruining their fun. I think there is really something wrong here. Have mountain bikers completely taken over our trail system to this extent, so a hiking trail is now considered a MTB bobsled run. Our trail systems have become overrun with MTB to the detriment of hiking. But this was truly a new insane abuse of the system. Now I know why we didn’t see any other hiker’s footprints. And there must be commercial operations that are shuttling these kamikazes to the top, and giving all this PR about “a high speed downhill run.” In addition, in several locations, jumps had been constructed to increase the madness. Shame, Shame! —Robert Huberman

Insults, Rights, Fights and Insights


Library series explores democracy and all that it entails By Hilary Corrigan




nsulting the president is nothing new in the U.S., and Southern Oregon University Professor Edwin Battistella has done the research to show it. The country has fostered a raucous environment in this arena “from the get-go,” Battistella said. People called George Washington too monarchical. Newspapers backing John Adams and Thomas Jefferson—the equivalent of today’s cable news—hired reporters to write stories attacking the other politician. “At one point, Adams supporters even claimed that Jefferson was dead,” Battistella said—something that was more difficult to check up on in those days. Battistella, who teaches English and linguistics, has written several books, including “Sorry About That: The Language of Public Apology.” His next book, “Dangerous Crooked Scoundrels” out next year—“just in time for the election,” Battistella noted—will review the ways presidents since George Washington have been insulted. Battistella will hold talks at the Deschutes Public

Library Sept. 14 and 15 as part of the library’s series, Know Government, running through September. His talk will review insults from over the centuries and how different presidents responded in different ways. Some stayed quiet but said later that the insults hurt. “Some are more, ‘Right back at you,’” Battistella said. Herbert Hoover took a lot of hits, but wrote in his memoirs that in all dignity, he couldn’t respond, Battistella noted. John F. Kennedy used wit, turning insults back around on those who made them. Gerald Ford didn’t like people making fun of him for being a klutz, but he also thought it was good for the country to laugh, Battistella said. Wartime presidents got some extra insults: Franklin Delano Roosevelt was called a traitor to both his class and to communists. Battistella has noticed some changes over the years—including a shift from the more classical and quasi-religious terms used early on. He has also noticed similarities—comparing

presidents to earlier presidents, for instance, or to animals. “Jerk” popped up in the 20th Century. Before that, it was “jackass”—and that term has devolved into a more derogatory one. “Lots of gender insults over the years,” Battistella said, calling that a “consistent theme.” A big difference now comes in the speed and intensity of immediate reactions, compared to the past, Professor Edwin Battistella. when presidents would give speeches and reporters would cover them. turn the other cheek to insults, he said. “Now it’s much more sort of all the That president sued newspaper owner time.

The ability for many different types of people with many different types of belief systems to exchange ideas is a cornerstone of democracy, Goodrich said. Library Director Todd Dunkelberg called the series a chance to delve deeper into government, a subject that people often don’t think much about until they need to vote or pay a tax bill. “What’s a democracy and what’s my role in it?” Dunkelberg said, noting that an important part of a democracy is having an informed and involved public. Persistence, passion & skepticism Kimberly Jensen, professor of history and gender studies at Western Oregon University, will lead a session on women’s suffrage in Oregon. Women got the right to vote in Oregon in 1912, eight years before the 19th Amendment that ensured women’s right to vote in the U.S. “Oregon’s fight was a Submitted long one. It took six times on the ballot,” Jensen said, noting the ultimate success through grassroots organizing and media efforts. “I think it was a struggle. It took coalition-building, it took a lot of patience in that activism.” Oregon brought the question to male voters more than any other state, Jensen said, noting that the six attempts stretched from the 1870s to 1912. But simply having the right to vote isn’t the same as exercising it—and even the right to vote can still be undermined. Jensen pointed to recent voter suppression efforts and the ways that people who are eligible to vote are prevented and discouraged from doing so.

“Time after time, it’s about registering and getting out and doing it,” Jensen said. Oregon women understood the power of the vote and wanted to change their communities for the better, Jensen said. “Just like we can too,” she said of making communities and the nation better by connecting with issues, getting informed and involved and voting.

community is interested in, according to Liz Goodrich, adult programs supervisor at Deschutes Public Library. “There’s some that are funny, there’s some that are serious,” Goodrich said, calling this series an “interesting, slightly provocative” one that will appeal to all types of persuasions. One session in the series will explore the rise and fall of democracies. Another will explore anarchy. An especially timely session will review the Electoral College and whether it needs reform. Oregon recently changed its process so that the state’s electoral college votes could go to a presidential candidate who wins the most votes nationwide. It’s a priority of the library board to deliver programs that help build the community, engage people and provide the space for people to gather, Goodrich said. “The living room of the community,” she said. “The library is uniquely poised to be that place.”

A posthumous painting of Anthony Bourdain sparks an art series—and opens a conversation around suicide for World Suicide Awareness Day By Nicole Vulcan


n the southeastern tip of Bainbridge Island sits an exposed swath of bedrock—a sign of past seismic activity, one not often seen so close to the surface. It’s a geologic phenomenon, geologists say. Bainbridge Island, near Seattle, is also where Nicola Carpinelli was living when he began a descent into depression and substance abuse, he says. Call it his own descent into the bedrock, if you will. Carpinelli is an artist, musician and former TV professional who’s called places including Los Angeles, Europe, New Mexico, Bainbridge Island, and now, Bend, home. He’s emerged as an advocate for opening up the dialogue about suicide, holding an art show and panel discussion on suicide this week at Peterson Roth Gallery. The subjects of Carpinelli’s paintings include people who died by suicide. They include, among others, Anthony Bourdain, Chris Cornell of the band Soundgarden, David Bowie, Kate Spade, Margaux Hemingway, Ernest Hemingway and Genevieve Vargas, a teen girl with whom Carpinelli developed a bond several years ago.

Art, now and then For Carpinelli, the show and its works represent a re-emergence of his own artistic creativity—the first series of paintings Carpinelli has felt ready to share with the world since he began battling substance abuse, depression and suicidal ideations back in the Puget Sound. That’s where, as an art gallery owner and musician, he rubbed elbows with the likes of Ben Shepard, bass player from Soundgarden, a connection that would eventually connect him to the band’s frontman, Chris Cornell. Carpinelli talked of meeting Shepard shortly after moving to the Seattle area in 2001. Early on, Seattle’s rainy days—and seasonal depression—had yet to affect him, but in Shepard, Carpinelli saw a preview of what might come. “We were hanging out every day… and come September, Ben disappears on me,” Carpinelli explained. The following spring, Carpinelli said he ran into Shepard, who begged him not to be offended by Shepard’s absence. “You don’t know what winters do to you here, he said,” Carpinelli explained. “I still

had the L.A. sun in my body. The next year I got a taste of what that’s [seasonal depression] like.” Carpinelli’s opening an art gallery in Seattle’s Pioneer Square added more temptation, becoming a hotspot for artists and musicians to hang out. One day, Carpinelli says an employee gave him a drug that changed him. “It would have bene nice to get the instructions—like the ones you get on the back of a bottle, ‘caution, you will lose your family after 15 months of using this drug, and lose your business,” Carpinelli reflected. “I had an amazing career—I was showing at all kinds of galleries… writeups… selling to Gucci, the Stray Cats guys were buying my work, the Soundgarden guys were buying my work. I took it down to zero. I had sunk my world within two years. My wife was gone, the kids were gone, and then what’s next? Nobody to hold me accountable. I really went deep pocket.” A decade of “deep pocket” ensued. A nice mess During the deep pocket days, Carpinelli met Ryan Brown, who became a

bandmate in the Seattle band, Amazing Murder Video. Lyrics from Amazing Murder Video’s 2013 song, “The Hurting,” reveal some of the depths. “And the last thing I hear is OK Don’t try to save me now It’s too late.” Carpinelli described Brown as a friend who was there, even during the “hard drug” times. “I was a nice mess, but a mess nonetheless,” Carpinelli now jokes. After a number of years, Carpinelli says he had “what can only be construed as a vision from God.” He said, “I felt this lightness. I felt sober. For the first time… in this period, I had clarity, and I just got into action.” Following that, Carpinelli says it was Brown who convinced him to move to Bend. “Bend, Oregon, had a lot to do with me painting again after this 10-year hiatus. I don’t know if it’s the high desert or what magical quality this town has, but it has something—there’s

Nicola Carpinell

something really beautiful, spiritual seeking kind of vibe that it has.” That “magical quality,” combined with a significant event for Carpinelli, launched the Dead Poets project. After celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain killed himself in June 2018, Carpinelli was struck hard. “When I was using drugs and alcohol, it’s like, you’re muting your heart because of past pains, but you’re doing it with a Band-Aid… you have a wound the size of the Grand Canyon you’re trying to cover. “When Bourdain died I was sober, and now I’m feeling these sadnesses again—so

I had to express it. ‘Hearts Unknown’— which is the title of the [Anthony Bourdain] painting—came to mind. I painted that, and then I started to think about Chris Cornell. It felt good to paint this, to put it on canvas.” Bourdain led to painting Cornell, to the Hemingways, to Robin Williams and many others.

Also, take people seriously, Asher said. “You don’t want to deny what a person is saying. If they say they’re terrible, you don’t go in and say they’re great; you say, ‘What makes you say that?’ With genuineness and curiosity, you would want to find out stuff that’s unpleasant to hear and be present in it. Even clinicians have a hard time ‘being present’ in it. When someone dies, you don’t have to say anything—you just have to be there. You don’t have to solve the problem, but you just have to be there.” The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline also offers resources and tips for people who have loved ones who may be suicidal, including being willing to listen, talking openly about suicide, and removing means, such as pills or weapons from the person’s vicinity. It also recommends calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to get more help for one’s self, or another person. (See more resources in the sidebar of this story.)

Supporting those with suicidal ideations Asher’s recommendations around helping those considering suicide come with the caveat of “it depends on the situation.” As a general rule, however, Asher recommends that “you remind the person that you’re interested and caring in what they’re going through. And if you say that, you’d better come off sincere.”

Dead Poets Art Exhibit and Thought Leadership Discussion Featuring Nicola Carpinelli, Mariel Hemingway, Howard Asher, PsyD.

An invitation Carpinelli’s exhibit has already been creating a buzz, both in Bend and beyond. Panelists for the Sept. 10 discussion include Mariel Hemingway, whose sister and grandfather are featured in the paintings. Carpinelli also talks of bringing the exhibit on the road—but for now, his sole goal is this first show and an opening of dialogue about suicide. Sept. 10 also happens to be World Suicide Awareness Day. As Carpinelli puts it, “I’m willing to put myself out there so that maybe we reach somebody here.”

This shows a detailed section of the David Bowie painting that also incorporates a recent Source Weekly cover. Bowie is thought to have died by assisted suicide.

Mental Health Services Administration, offers its Recommendations for Reporting on Suicide, aimed at helping media professionals cover suicide responsibly. Among its recommendations are guidelines around avoiding the glorification of suicide—a topic that had me wondering whether an art project can be construed as “glorification.” Carpinelli doesn’t see it that way; nor does a psychologist who’s worked with him. For Carpinelli, who contemplated suicide on many occasions during low points of his life, the Dead Poets series offered a catharsis for himself—and ultimately, an opportunity to share his journey with others. Before his move to Bend, Carpinelli says he sought help from Howard Asher, who holds a doctorate in psychology. Asher—who will also be on the panel discussion at Peterson Roth Gallery Sept. 10—shared some insight into art as a therapy, for both artist and viewer. (Carpinelli gave the Source permission to talk to Asher about his treatment process.) “For better or worse, Nicola is an artist,” Asher explained. Whatever challenges artists are facing, Asher said, “The artist will process it creatively and emotively. He’s going to do everything through an artist’s perspective—and it’s a blessing for the rest of us.” In the case of Carpinelli, who’s had his own suicidal ideations and has used the Dead Poets project as a way of processing others’ suicides, Asher tries to explain it by saying, “He’s in conflict with understanding, and also not understanding it.”

Totally Worth It

The artists you might not know, but need to see at the 2019 Sisters Folk Festival By Isaac Biehl


Matt Dunlap

Kacy & Clayton


Friday: 7:45-8:45pm at The Open Door Saturday: Noon-1pm at The Belfry & 7:30-8:30pm at Depot Café This Canadian duo is vibrant, classic and dreamy. Kacy takes her voice to incredible places with a such a unique and hair-raising tone. When joined by Clayton the two seem to interweave voices in a way that’s truly special. It’s like folk music on LSD. The upcoming album, “Carrying On,” releases Oct. 4.

Thunderstorm Artis

Saturday: 6-7pm at Sisters Coffee Company If that last name looks familiar to you, you’re not wrong. The son of Ron Artis and brother of Ron Artis II (who you can catch playing SFF as well) possesses a great talent just like the rest of his family. He’s young but seasoned; dude seriously has a voice that comes out like butter.

Artis’ songwriting has depth and power behind it so you can expect an intimate performance from the singer-songwriter.

Aaron Lee Tasjan

Friday: 6:30-7:30pm at Melvin’s Market Saturday: Noon-1pm at Depot Café & 8:30-9:30pm at Sisters Saloon Aaron Lee Tasjan is a definite must-see. If you’re a fan of Tom Petty (which, c’mon) then Tasjan is the show for you. He falls right in line with the late legend with his tone and style. Tasjan is a breath of fresh air, delivering a combination of psych-folk tunes that are sure to leave an impression over the duration of the festival.  Sisters Folk Festival Fri., Sep. 6-Sun,. Sep. 8 Various venues & times Sisters

This photo looks just like what a Kacy & Clayton song sounds like, all flowery and stuff.


t’s that time of the year again: the Sisters Folk Festival is back and ready to deliver a heaping amount of music. With such a great lineup that spreads across the town of Sisters, it can be hard to properly divvy up your time, and you might miss something that would have been worth knowing about. But don’t fret (guitar pun intended), the Source can help you out. While obviously it’s encouraged to see Bruce Cockburn deliver a possibly transcendent performance, and yes, we want you to watch Rising Appalachia perform cuts off the band’s excellent album, released in May, this roundup is

for the artists you might not know yet— and the ones totally worth your time.


Friday: 11:30pm-12:30am at Sisters Saloon Saturday: 2-2:45pm at Melvin’s Market (workshop) & 11pm-12:30am at The Belfry Sunday: 3-4pm at Melvin’s Market I interviewed Kuinka’s Miranda Zickler back in May about the group’s new EP, “Landlines,” a fun combination of folk, pop and rock. These guys deliver such an eclectic mix of tunes that will make for an incredibly fun live show. You’re basically guaranteed to be grinning from start to finish with their positive energy and talent.

Providing private, compassionate euthanasia services for your cats & dogs in the privacy of your pet’s home.

One could say Aaron Lee Tasjan is sporting the “Willy Wonka” look here.

A look back at a few of music’s gems from August

Sourc e Mat erial

By Isaac


“Pay Attention” – Russell James New to the Oregon scene is New Mexico’s Russell James. Having relocated to Corvallis just this summer, James’ third LP will make for a good welcome into the music community. “Pay Attention” is a combination of elements that James has called “dreamfolk.” The album’s base is built upon traditional folk, yes—but James experimented with more ambient sounds to give the project a vast range of electronic depth. So, he’s pretty spot-on with dreamfolk. The album’s opener, “1994,” is a nostalgic trip that details some vivid memories of James’ youth. His imagery here and throughout the album is excellent and a consistent highpoint to this collection of emotionally driven songs.

Five for the Rotation “SUGAR” – Brockhampton “Freedom” – Sampa the Great “Sing Along” – Sturgill Simpson “Southern Sky” – (Sandy) Alex G “Daydreaming” – Milky Chance & Tash Sultana



“So Much Fun” – Young Thug While this is the best project Young Thug’s ever put out, I’m still not sure we’ve seen his final form. The Atlanta rapper/singer/unicorn just keeps on getting better and better. “So Much Fun” honestly might be the album of the summer, and the numbers back that up: “So Much Fun” is Thugga’s first #1 album (in 10 tries!). You can’t help but feel the joy exuberating from his voice—whether it’s “Surf” with Gunna or “What’s The Move” with Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug is determined to put a smile on the face of the masses. And yes, the album is, truly, so much fun. “Live on Ice” – Tobi Lou As one of the most promising young artists of today, Chicago’s Tobi Lou has officially started showing up on the world’s radar with the release of his first full-length project, “Live on Ice.” The artist isn’t afraid to be quirky in his songs, filling them up with inside details from his life or interests (he loves cartoons so much he might actually be one). One thing this album makes clear is that he is significantly more than just a rapper—he’s wise beyond his years and puts his pop sensibility on full display (see “Humpty Dumpty” or “Ice Cream Girl” for reference). While being on ice generally cools you off, Tobi Lou is doing nothing but heating up.

Downtown Drop

Locals go off the edge of hotel to raise funds for United Way By Nicole Vulcan


Courtesy United Way of Deschutes County

The Over the Edge event sends local people rappelling off the Oxford Hotel building Saturday. Here, a participant goes “over the edge” at another location.

higher than that, it’s sure to be even more of an adrenaline rush, Fischetti said. “When you’re standing on the edge of a building and you have to trust the system, it can be scary,” Fischetti added. Down below will be a “ground party” that will close NW Minnesota Avenue and NW Lava Road for part of the day, including food carts from Pizza Cart, Dump City Dumplings, 10 Below and Kona Ice, kids activities and a beer garden from Sunriver Brewing Company, Avid Cider and Humm Kombucha.

ARTWATCH The Tour of Art

Bend Tour Company offers a fun way to view public art


eople can take so many tours in Central Oregon—tours of rivers, breweries and pub houses, tours of the marijuana industry… even tours of the most photographic spaces. But what about taking a tour of art? On one recent, terribly rainy day, I hitched a ride aboard The Bend Tour Company’s Art Tour. John Flannery co-operates the tour. My fellow travelers were a local woman and her two friends from Denver, Colorado. In the middle of our tour, a downpour began. While our guests from Denver were clearly bummed, I felt I had the perfect view of that beautiful storm from Flannery’s open-air electric car.


t’s not uncommon to witness the sight of someone top roping a rock face on Smith Rock—but even in a region known for its outdoors scene, seeing someone rappel down Bend’s highest building is a rarity. It might very well be the first time anyone’s seen it, in fact. According to the United Way of Deschutes County, it’s bringing a “first of its kind” sight to Central Oregon this weekend, by way of its “Over the Edge” fundraising event. In it, community members will rappel from the top of the Oxford Hotel—a 7-story, 70-foot tall building—while a street party takes place below. It’s a little different than your average day at Smith Rock. The idea behind this Over the Edge— an idea that’s been replicated among non-profits across North America—is that rappelling from that height may be scary, but not quite as scary as it can be to face the daily challenges faced by some of the area’s most vulnerable. Local people— which include KTVZ’s Bob Shaw and Mike Allen, as well as local DJs Austin Reed and Dave Clemens—have been raising funds on behalf of the United Way over the past several months. In exchange, they’ll get the “privilege” of sporting helmets, harnesses and other safety gear to face their own fears and go off the side of a building. “I have rappelled off the roof of a building when I went through structure fire academy 10 years ago,” said Diana Fischetti, director of development & marketing for United Way of Deschutes County. “And even though I had done some rock climbing, it was certainly more exhilarating than I thought it would be, from five stories up.” Since the Oxford is two stories

Over the Edge is a spectacle that’s gone on nationwide, and in Canada— even taking place on buildings as high as the 42-story U.S. Bancorp Tower— also known as Big Pink—in Portland. But in each community where Over the Edge happens, the money raised goes back into the community that brought it in. Through its fundraising, United Way offers grants to other local non-profits, collects data on needs in the community and helps incubate new programs.

And while some of the people involved have been using the past several months to meet their fundraising goal of $1,000 for the opportunity to rappel “over the edge,” anyone can show up on the day of the event, donate $1,000 and get to rappel that day, Fischetti said.  Over the Edge

What’s great about seeing art in this manner is that Flannery doesn’t just include the main spots, such as Art, the statue downtown, or roundabout sculptures; the tour also includes the hidden in-between gems, smaller statues at the entrances to buildings or minute architectural details of buildings inside and out, the history of the buildings where art is housed and how the townspeople were thinking about the placement of art as Bend has grown. I forget sometimes just how much art we have in Bend. The sign of a healthy community is the art that’s there. Where there’s art, there’s life. Flannery’s art tour does a great job of showcasing the life in Bend. From the sculptures depicting history to the impromptu creations of Deschutes Brewery workers, Flannery shows you little nooks and crannies where creativity is flourishing.

John Flannery and fellow art adventurers in The Bend Tour Company’s open-air electric car.

Flannery is an exuberant storyteller, filled with genuine joy and love for what he’s sharing. That’s the best thing an artist can ask for: someone who loves and shares their art.

Plant-Based Fast Food

By Nicole Vulcan

Source writers eat their way through the chains rolling out meatless ‘meat’ options

By Nicole Vulcan & Isaac Biehl

Carl’s Jr Beyond Famous Star Carl’s Jr. partnered with Beyond Meat, the plant-based burger made from pea protein, to deliver a meatless burger that looks and tastes a lot like the real thing. I rolled up to the Carl’s Jr. on Revere and Third Street to try one out. At $6.99, the Beyond version of Carl’s Jr’s Famous Star burger is $2 more than the beef version, coming with the standard bells and whistles: tomato, lettuce, mayo, onion, ketchup, secret sauce and a sesame seed bun, with the option of adding melted American cheese. If you’re

Nicole Vulcan

Mmmm… matsutakes…

It’s Matsutake Season!

Carl’s Jr.’s Beyond Meat burger passes muster, if you’re into that drive-thru burger-type thing.

the type of plant-based burger eater who’s looking for an exact replica of a meat burger, then you’ll mostly get what you’re looking for. Beyond Meat does a decent job of imitating the texture of a beef burger patty; on the thick side, with plenty of chewiness. But the flavor still has the tang of the old school veggie burgers of yore; kind of a soy taste— though there’s no soy in the burger at all. While the summer road trip season is mostly behind us for this year, chalk this one up to something you can rely on for a quick, classic-meets-ecoconscious burger next time you’re in a hurry. -Nicole Vulcan Burger King’s Impossible Whopper: All Hail the King Other than the new Popeye’s chicken sandwich, the Impossible Whopper is probably the hottest item on the fast-food market right now. I’ve tried it twice, and for all intents and purposes, it gets the job done. For one meal Courtesy Inspire Brands

Arby’s has yet to roll out its “megetables,” or, as seen here, its “marrot,” to the public, but the company has been vocal about not offering a fake-meat option at its restaurants.

I’m able to forget that what I’m eating isn’t actually meat—which is probably the greatest thing about the Impossible Whopper; it doesn’t really taste like a veggie burger, and if you didn’t know what it was before diving in, you might not ever know. Priced at $6.19, it comes assembled like a classic Whopper: big poppy seed bun with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayo and ketchup. Overall, it tasted pretty fresh. I’ll probably come back more for the convenience and price than the flavor, but for what it’s worth, Burger King has officially climbed the ranks of my favorite fast-food joints with this. I also have to give it the edge over the Carls Jr. option. After all, there can only be one true Burger King. -Isaac Biehl Del Taco’s Beyond Meat options Del Taco loudly proclaimed the advent of its Beyond Meat offerings earlier this year, brandishing a giant sign outside the drive-thru location on Third Street and Wilson. Never seeing a taco I wasn’t willing to try, I spun through the drive-thru. People who consume fast-food tacos seem to love the taco sweat that accumulates on the outside of the crispy shell and the delicious, relative simplicity of three or four ingredients smashed together in one hand-held package. The relatively low prices don’t hurt, either. With Del Taco’s Beyond Taco, you get the first two of those— but at a $1 higher price tag than the meat version, at $2.49. Unlike the burger-imposter cousins at other fast food joints, it’s harder to distinguish the fake-meat taste in the taco—probably because of all of that chili and cumin taco seasoning. Consider me sufficiently deceived. -Nicole Vulcan 

What’s better than wild, fresh mushrooms? Wild, fresh mushrooms you harvested yourself. As of Sept. 3, matsutake mushroom season is officially open in the Deschutes, Fremont-Winema, Umpqua and Willamette National Forests. The season goes through Nov. 3. People who plan to sell mushrooms commercially need a permit to harvest them. The least expensive option is the $8 day permit—available at a three-day minimum. Half-season permits are $100, and full season permits are $200. People have to be at least 18 and show a valid I.D. to get a commercial permit. Harvesting mushrooms commercially has become such a popular activity that the Forest Service designates a campground for harvesters at Little Odell Mushroom Camp near Crescent Lake. Contact the Crescent Ranger District at 541-433-3200 for information on the camp. If you’re a newbie to identifying mushrooms, check out the Central Oregon Mushroom Club at mushroomsinbend. org. The Central Oregon Mushroom Club’s first meeting of the fall season takes place Thursday, Sept. 12 at 6:30 pm at Trinity Episcopal Church in Bend.

Family Meals Month: A Push to Eat at Home

September is a time of re-focusing and a slowing down of the activities calendar—and for a lot of families, it means tightening up the belt on all those meals on the go. That also means it’s an ideal time for a national organization to kick off Family Meals Month—a push to get families to eat at least one more meal at home each month. According to research from the Food Marketing Institute Foundation—the group behind Family Meals Month—88% of U.S. adults report eating healthier at home versus going out. Taking part locally is Newport Avenue Market, which already creates its “What’s for Dinner Tuesday” meal kits that customers can order ahead. This month, the kits are designed for a family of four, cost $30, and can be pre-ordered so that customers can pick them up quickly and get home. The kits typically come with a main dish and two to three sides. FMI is encouraging people to use the hashtag #familymealsmonth to show what they’re eating at home.

1121 NW Newport Ave., Bend 541-382-3940



very week, this column is dedicated to telling the stories of Central Oregon food producers and restauranteurs, filling our eager bellies with delicious, locally crafted fare. But for just one week, we hit up a few of the many fast food drive-thru chains making the pivot to meatless burgers. (That is, unless you’re Arby’s, which made a very public announcement this summer that no, it wouldn’t ever be rolling out a vegetarian burger—even going as far as developing “megetables”—literally meat products made to look like veggies.) The plant-based “meat” industry is booming—attributable at least in part to statements such as this one, from the Word Resources Institute in April: “If ruminant meat consumption in high-consuming countries declined to about 50 calories a day, or 1.5 burgers per person per week—about half of current U.S. levels and 25 percent below current European levels, but still well above the national average for most countries— it would nearly eliminate the need for additional agricultural expansion (and associated deforestation), even in a world with 10 billion people.” Whatever people’s reasons for going more plant-based, here’s our take on the meatless offerings at three chains in Bend.

Local taprooms feature frozen beer: the adults-only version of summertime slush By Nancy Patterson

Nancy Patterson

---�cc McKenzie SHOES & APPAREL


No, it’s not a frothy fantasy, it’s frozen beer foam!


t’s no secret that Central Oregon breweries have become the tastemakers of the beer scene, both locally and nationwide. So, when 10 Barrel Brewing announced this summer that it would be transforming its Crush sour beers into beer slushies, other breweries took notice. I toured a few local taprooms to explore and compare the varieties of frozen beer being served around town. The results were crushingly superb. The first taproom on the tour was Wild Ride Brewing. Located in the heart of downtown Redmond, family friendly Wild Ride has a handful of seasonal brews available for the summer, and for adult slushies. My companion and I chose two frozen libations: the Tarty for the Party and the Cold Chillin’. The Tarty starts with a pour of the Cherry-Lemon Sour Ale, finished with a float of lemonade slush. The Chillin’ is made up of a frosty pint of Vanilla Cream Ale, topped with an Orange Crush slushie iceberg. What we loved about the Chillin’: its slightly nostalgic characteristics, reminiscent of adolescent summer days cooling off with a Creamsicle. However, the Tarty was the choice slushie of our visit; the lemonade float delivering a balanced sweetness as it filtered each sip of the tart cherry ale. Making our way south, we stopped at Bend’s newest hip taproom, Boss Rambler Beer Club, which has been featuring the addition of ‘frozen foam’ to its brews. Curiosity, more than anything, led me to this destination. While you

can top any of the beers with the frozen float, they do recommend the Lite Beer, as this is what the flurry iceberg is made of. Imagine a picturesque head on your beer that never fizzles away. Although it’s not a flavored slush concoction, it’s very conducive to keeping your beer ice-cold down to the last gulp. Finally, we made our way to 10 Barrel Brewing. I chatted with the on-duty bartender, Brennen Pebbles, about the hit summer drink. Crushies are made with Raspberry Crush and citric acid, which keeps them homogenous. Looking around the Eastside pub, Crushies appeared to be a hit—so much that at least one customer at every table was enjoying them. Pebbles poured me a tulip glass of the Crushie, allowing me to sample the slush before offering his doctored version of the drink. “If you want to make this even better, try adding a float of red wine and topping of whipped cream,” he suggested. Now this is a slushie beer that I could enjoy more than one of! The addition of the house red wine softens the sour just enough to offer a sweet smoothness that Pebbles compares to raspberry cheesecake. While I never intended for this slushie tour to become a competition, it’s my due diligence to offer my unbiased tasting results. I would enjoy each of those beers again, but 10 Barrel crushed the competition. I think it’s safe to say that I’ve found a new dessert favorite during my pub visits: the Raspberry Cheesecake Crushie. 



Summer’s Not Over Until You Get Hopped Up on Beer Slushies

FILM SHORTS By Jared Rasic



47 METERS DOWN: Uncaged: Four teenaged girls get stalked by blind sharks through the sunken ruins of a Mayan city. I mean, that sounds awesome and the film has some super scary moments, but the acting and dialogue are so terrible that it feels like a bit of a chore. Still, milky eyed sharks chewing through fashion models is kinda fun. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX


AFTER THE WEDDING: With a cast featuring

Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams and Billy Crudup, ‘After the Wedding” is partly a mystery, partly a drama, but all beautifully acted by performers at the top of their game. A genuinely intriguing little movie. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

OVERCOMER: That doesn’t really sound like a word. “Overcomer?” Is that a word? Sounds like a professional wrestler. This is from the faith-based filmmakers who brought you such hot garbage as “Fireproof,” “War Room” and “Courageous.” Maybe they should pray for a dictionary or some filmmaking talent. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

ANGEL HAS FALLEN: Gerard Butler kills

PAVAROTTI: Even if you don’t know opera, you’ve probably heard

things. Morgan Freeman is president. That one guy who’s always a bad guy is the bad guy. Nick Nolte looks like he got put away wet. Things explode. There’s a knife fight. It will make all the money... and next year we’ll get Arches Have Fallen, about a terrorist with flat feet. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema

BENNETT’S WAR: This one goes right out to the heartland: An ex-soldier is desperate to save his family farm so he becomes a competitive motocross racer. The plot of this movie sounds super fake, but I swear this is a real movie. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX BLINDED BY THE LIGHT: A Bruce Springsteen

singalong pasted across the story of a Muslim teen growing up in England. There’s a lot going on with this movie, which is surprisingly poignant and heartfelt without ever becoming cheesy and obvious. Works even for people who don’t care about Springsteen. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Odem Theater Pub

DARK PHOENIX: Hey, look, another adaptation of the

“Dark Phoenix Saga,” a much beloved comic arc from the 1980s. I wonder if they’ll get it right this time? It can’t be worse than “X-Men: The Last Stand,” can it? Oh, sweet summer child. It can always get worse…especially in Hollywood. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Odem Theater Pub

GOOD BOYS: This is basically “Superbad” but with

tweens, which means the filthy language and situations are even funnier. I’ve seen some critics lamenting laughing about the corruption of kids in the film, but three 12-year-olds accidentally discovering a sex swing hits me right in the funnies. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond CInema

GLORIA BELL: Julianne Moore gives one of her finest performances as a woman who finds love at a time when she was searching for anything but something serious. A surprising and heartfelt little movie. Odem Theater Pub HOBBS & SHAW: Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham take their characters from the “Fast and the Furious” franchise and spin them into another franchise that will then spin into another franchise until the entire world becomes an excuse for Vin Diesel to live life a quarter mile at a time. Big explosions and even bigger stupidity make this movie a fun headache. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema IT CHAPTER TWO: The continuation of the super

fun Stephen King spook show now sees the Losers Club come back to Derry as adults to take on and kill the murderous clown Pennywise once and for all. At nearly three hours long, it’s sure to be packed to the gills with scares. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House, Redmond Cinema

MAIDEN: A super badass documentary about the first

all-female crew taking on a brutal 33,000-mile yacht race. Even a narrative movie about this subject wouldn’t be half as intensely fascinating as this powerful and heart-racing documentary. Don’t miss this one. Tin Pan Theater, Odem Theater Pub

MIKE WALLACE IS HERE: While this documentary is focused on newscaster Mike Wallace, the real meat and bones of the film come from watching how the landscape of news reporting has changed over the years. A true revelation as it looks at the constantly changing avenues of human communication. Sisters Movie House

you like Tarantino or you don’t, and this big hearted and strange fantasy won’t change your mind. Simultaneously a love letter to 1969 Hollywood and a dirge for the loss of innocence those times stirred in us as a country, “Once Upon a Time” is a glorious cinematic treasure. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Odem Theater Pub

the name Pavarotti, the most famous tenor of all time. He makes everything sound good. He’s like the Barry White of opera. This is a documentary about his life. I bet he sings in it. Odem Theater Pub

READY OR NOT: A young woman marries into the

staggeringly rich Le Domas family—one with a few quirky traditions that won’t end well for anyone. The film is ultimately a very violent game of hide and seek and easily the most entertaining horror/comedy of the year. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX


on the book of short stories that gave me nightmares for years comes this mega-disturbing horror anthology from the director of “Troll Hunter.” The trailers look atmospheric and fun, so here’s hoping 2019 brings us another horror classic. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond CInema

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME: Marvel is fairly unstoppable at this point, so this new entry in the “Spider-Man” franchise could have Peter Parker sitting on camera reading “Twilight” and it would still make a billion dollars. Plus, this movie is super fun, and Jake G. Is a national treasure. Just sayin. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE 2: I never saw the first

one because it looked like pain, but with a voice cast featuring Jason Sudeikis, Danny McBride, Peter Dinklage, Awkwafina, Bill Hader and Tiffany Haddish, I should probably get over it. I just don’t like birds…even when they’re angry. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond CInema


tear-jerking novel by Garth Stein, the film is sure to be even more tear-jerking. Told from the POV of a dog named Enzo (voiced by Kevin Costner), this story will be sure to crush adults and children alike. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond CInema

THE FAREWELL: A bittersweet and lovely dramedy

about the lengths we go to for family and the ways different cultures say goodbye. One of the best films of the year so far and destined to go down as the funniest movie about grief ever made. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE LION KING: Look, I’m sure this movie is really

pretty to look at and everything, but if it doesn’t have Jeremy Irons playing Scar, then I’m gonna make a hard pass. I’m sure I’ll see it at some point, but messing with perfection is never a good idea—even if it’s Disney messing with their own perfect ideas. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE NIGHTINGALE: From Jennifer Kent, the brilliant director of “The Babadook,” comes this brutal period piece about rape, revenge and justice. Not for the squeamish or the faint of heart, this movie is very tough to watch but ultimately very rewarding. Tin Pan Theater THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON: One of the

sweetest movies ever made. The film follows a young man with Down syndrome following his dream to be a professional wrestler. Part Mark Twain and part southern gothic fairytale, “The Peanut Butter Falcon” is the textbook definition of a crowd pleaser. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Sisters Movie House

YESTERDAY: Director Danny Boyle (“Trainspotting” &

“Sunshine”) taking on the concept of a world where no one remembers the Beatles sounds perfect. His films all use music beautifully and his sense of color, light and frame are densely theatrical, so combining his visual style with the Beatles seems like a match made in musical theater heaven. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Odem Theater Pub

Hot off the presses is a new season of television’s most watched show, “The Walking Dead.” Season 9? Are you serious? That’s so many seasons. Hot take: This show hasn’t been good for years. Hotter take: It was never good, just entertaining, because it had zombies and cool stuff every few episodes. I’m just saying, maybe Carol should take this show out back to look at the flowers. Now Streaming on Netflix


the Source Be with You SCREEN May September Edition By Jared Rasic

In Pod We Trust: I promise to only pimp the podcast by myself and Zeke Kamm, titled Unwinder, a few more times on this platform, I swear. Our newest episode (#21) has a hard-hitting and delirious interview with Nicola Carpinelli, the brilliant painter talking about his upcoming art show on Sept. 10 at Peterson Roth Gallery. (See this week’s Feature section.) It’s a freewheeling and

almost dreamlike interview where we also talk about suicide, his tumultuous relationship with Prince’s protege Vanity and how he tried to get Andy Dick sober. I promise it’s a weird one. In the realm of podcasts I’m not involved in: Land of the Giants has been killing it lately. Most of the episodes focus on the Big 5: Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google, and how these tech companies have changed the world. One of the recent episodes (“Why You’ll Never Quit Amazon Prime”) gives us an oral history of Amazon and reminds us all that the shipping and now streaming giant used to just be focused on books. It’s fascinating stuff that could’ve been super dry in a lesser podcast’s hands. Now Streaming There’s so much. Almost too much. Whether it’s the dark and deeply divisive new season of “Veronica Mars” or the enchanting new “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” on Netflix, we’re getting a gluttonous return of all my favorite things. The new season of

The detailed magnificence of “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.”

David Fincher’s “Mindhunter” is chilling and probably the best serial killer series since “Hannibal.” Even “Van Helsing,” which should be a terrible, low-budget embarrassment from the SyFy channel is a seriously demented and fun vampire epic. I’ve hit a point where there are too many things I want to watch and just not enough hours in the day (especially

since my job is watching movies, not shows). I still haven’t watched the new seasons of “Glow,” “Agents of SHIELD” or “The 100,” all three of which I dearly love. I have failed you, dear readers. I must not be as good at binging as I used to be. I’m going to try to watch 31 horror movies I’ve never seen in the month of October, so here’s hoping I don’t let you down!  






ood news, everyone! It’s my birthday month! I will be accepting donations of scented letters and wilted flowers, many thanks in advance. Also, September is usually a pretty good month for movies, so hopefully we get some bangers over the next few weeks. I’ve been underwhelmed by way too many movies this year (as good as “Once Upon a Hollywood” was, “Hobbs and Shaw,” “Alita” and “Godzilla” were all hugely disappointing for me). Here are a few things I’m not even a little disappointed by in the beautiful month of September.

Connecting Through Adventure By Isaac Biehl

Courtesy Cascadia Adventure Film Festival


n Central Oregon, visitors and locals might have the chance to go mountain biking, whitewater rafting and hiking all in the same day. There’s a good chance you’ll get a look at all these activities even if you aren’t the one partaking. That’s just the lifestyle. That’s also why the Cascadia Adventure Film Festival makes a lot of sense; people in Central Oregon love adventure. A festival putting a spotlight on all of the activities the community loves, put on by people who live within that community, is almost too perfect. And while some of the films might not be shot here, they all touch on themes and stories that run close to home. “I was really surprised that we [Bend] don’t already have our own dedicated adventure film festival,” says Jason Bagby, the founder and executive director of CAFF. “We actually had 55 films to choose from in our first year, and we’re showing 16 over three days, with four different categories.” The inaugural CAFF takes place from Sept. 5 to 7, with each day of the festival focusing on different ways to experience adventure. Thursday’s theme is rock climbing. Friday’s theme is “Trail Goats,” which takes a look at the various places trail running can take people. Saturday is a special day, with a matinee at 12:30 pm, all about tales from whitewater excursions. At night is “Bike Adventures.” “We wanted to cover pretty much a little bit of everything that makes Bend" what it is today, continued Bagby. “I’m really excited about all those films. I feel like they’re all A-caliber films. Given that we had so many to choose from

at the beginning, I feel like we’ve got a great lineup.” Bagby himself is an adventurer, climbing photographer and film producer. Most recent is his work with “On The Verge,” a rock climbing film shot in British Columbia that also touches on timber conservation, which will screen at CAFF. “We moved here primarily for the adventure opportunities. I love rock climbing, I love backpacking; mountain biking is a huge passion of mine,” Bagby tells the Source. “For me, the festival kind of represents everything good about Bend.” Films to watch out for include “Aniakchak,” which follows local newlyweds Graham Zimmerman and Shannon McDowell on their journey through the Alaskan peninsula, bike-packing and packrafting. Talk about a honeymoon, right? Then there’s the epic climbing journey shown Courtesy Cascadia Adventure Film Festival

in “China,” directed by Bend’s own Tara Kerzhner, who says her time there was an incredibly visual experience. “Bend has a massive population of outdoor and adventure-focused residents. It's only natural to find a huge drive for content like this. I myself discovered the outdoors via Smith Rock. I think that outdoor representation is a huge driving force for young people to discover their own spark within the outdoors,” Kerzhner told the Source. “I'm really happy to be a part of the first annual CAFF and hope to continue a presence in this festival as Bend is my OG hometown.” Other than showing moving films, Bagby has many future plans for the organization. With Central Oregon being such an outdoor enthusiast’s haven, one goal is to help shed a light on environmentally friendly ways to handle the growth and tourism the community experiences. That concern and care is something attendees will be able to get a taste of at this year’s festival. “When you look through the lineup, I think, one of the things we’ve tried to do is choose films that have at least a small component of conservation,” reflects Bagby. “One of the positions that we as a festival want to take—and hopefully it’s a position that differentiates us from other, almost Red Bull-fueled adventure film festivals, is that we are taking this position of promoting responsible tourism and environmental stewardship.”  Cascadia Adventure Film Festival

The rock climbing film, “On The Verge,” also addresses timber conservation.

To Quote Febreeze, “Have You Gone Noseblind?”


The effect of odor when selling a home tenant who did not want the house to sell. So, before each and every showing, the house was “perfumed” with an incredibly strong odor of marijuana. As one can imagine, this smell evoked a wide range of responses from potential buyers— some funny and some deeply offended. About 95% of the time, the concern was voiced about whether the smell of weed would come out of the house. Our pets are family members— but that said, not everyone wants to share in the delightful odors these four-legged family members can leave behind. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve shown property and experienced buyers who couldn’t take in the features because they were completely preoccupied with the overwhelming animal odor. A realtor will tell you that it’s crucial to minimize any pet odor while the home is on the market. This includes sweet kitty’s litter box and bowls of food. In the case of food, cooking odors can linger for days, particularly when cooking food with a pungent odor, such as fish. The last thing one wants to have be the focal point of the showing is the lingering scent of last night’s salmon or tuna. It’s important to consider as a seller the possibility of having become “nose blind” to the scents of the home. A seller needs to be mindful of what potential buyers could be sensitive to when trying to give the best first impression when showing a home.

umans have five basic senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. The sense of smell can have a direct effect on a person’s emotional response in any situation—even when selling a home. The smells of a home can tell the buyer a story, and that story is either a good story or a not-sopleasant story. When a potential buyer is viewing a home, the smell of the home is just as important as the visual appeal. Odors can evoke a negative emotional response, which in turn can distract the buyer from imagining themselves living in the home. Instead, buyers are wandering around trying to identify the odor, or perhaps the potential buyer is allergic to that favorite potpourri or essential oil scent. I showed a darling little home to some clients a couple of years ago and will never forget this showing. Can you guess why it still sticks with me to this day? To no surprise, it was because of the overwhelming smell of the three separate essential oil diffusers running around the house. We were overpowered and so consumed with trying to figure what the seller was trying to cover up, that we couldn’t really take in all the home had to offer. The showing ended with the buyers in sneezing fits and us hitting the road toward the next potential dream home. I had another experience with a listing. The property was a beautiful custom home. It had everything; including a

in the hospital in another state. She’s really ill. Her boyfriend told me she’s lost a lot of weight and it might be shocking to see her initially. I want to be strong for her, but I’m a big crier. I cry on every phone call, and it’s awful. How do I show up for her and not let my feelings overwhelm me so she is not sad or worried about me and can concentrate on getting better? —Emotional When you’re visiting a friend or loved one who’s seriously ill, it’s nice to show up bearing gifts—like flowers, magazines, and a paper bag you can hyperventilate into. It’s scary seeing someone you care about all small and frail in a hospital bed. And this is your mom who’s really ill. If something happens to her, it’s not like you can just run out and pick up another one at Costco. Even so, the level of fear you experience when you see her is something you could have some control over. Neuroscience studies find that novel experiences are the most emotionally powerful, having the most intense effect on us. Additionally, psychology research finds that people quickly become acclimated to both positive and negative changes in their lives. Accordingly, seeing your mom for the first time will have the most gut-punchability. To dial down the intensity of your reaction when you first see her, you could ask her boyfriend to take some video of her and send it to you. He should ask your mom first, of course, so it won’t violate her privacy, and perhaps cast what he’s doing as sending you a hello. If she balks at letting him, he could then tell her the real deal: that it’s to emotionally prepare you for seeing her. The other major player in how you react to your mom’s condition is empathy. Neuroscientists Olga Klimecki and Tania Singer note that empathy involves our observing or even just imagining what another person is feeling and having that trigger the same sort of feeling in us. They give the example of hearing that a friend is sad because her grandmother is dying: “Our first reaction would be empathy, which means we would share the feeling of sadness and thereby know what our friend is going through.”

This initial bolt of empathy rises up automatically. But once you experience it, Klimecki and Singer explain, there’s a fork in the road, which is to say you can go one of two ways with your empathy: into unhealthy empathic distress or healthy empathic concern. Empathic distress is a me-focused response—empathy that turns into emotional quicksand when we just keep “feeling with” a person (feeling and feeling and feeling) without doing anything to try to change their situation. In time, we get overwhelmed by the distress we’re experiencing at their distress. This often leads to what Klimecki and Singer call “withdrawal Amy Alkon behavior”: our trying to escape our uncomfortable emotions by ducking out and leaving the other person alone with their suffering. Empathic concern, on the other hand, is an other-focused response. It starts with our experiencing that initial bolt of “feeling with” a person who’s suffering, but then we shift into “feeling for”—as in “What can I do FOR you?” Empathic concern is basically empathy with an action plan, motivating us to try to make things better for another person. The important takeaway for you is that you don’t have to let your feelings run the show, dragging you boohooingly along behind them. You can instead control your feelings by shifting from me-driven empathy, empathic distress, to mom-centered empathic concern. In practice, this simply takes redirecting your focus from how sad you are to how helpful you can be—emotionally and practically. Think Warrior Nurse instead of Drama Queen. One of the kindest things you can do for a very sick person is make their life boringly normal. Distract them from their illness by watching their favorite streamed show with them, playing Scrabble, losing $6 million to them in gin rummy, telling them the latest gossip about the slutty neighbor. Really, your just being there is huge. And once you leave, you can start sending her cards a few days a week. This will help keep you from falling into the swamp of me-focused pointless distress, and it’ll be comforting for her. Ultimately, it’s feeling loved—not laughter—that’s “the best medicine.” I’m guessing that’s why hospitals instituted visiting hours instead of replacing the IV bag on the pole with a foul-mouthed parrot in a tiny bandanna squawking insults at passersby.

ASTROLOGY  By Rob Brezsny the cheese guild issued a decree proclaiming, “If you make fake mortadella . . . your body will be stretched on the rack three times, you will be fined 200 gold coins, and all the food you make will be destroyed.” I appreciate such devotion to purity and authenticity and factualness. And I recommend that in the coming weeks, you commit to comparable standards in your own sphere. Don’t let your own offerings be compromised or corrupted. The same with the offerings you receive from other people. Be impeccable.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): John Muir (1838–

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “When you’re nailing a custard pie to the wall, and it starts to wilt, it doesn’t do any good to hammer in more nails.” So advised novelist Wallace Stegner. I hope I’m delivering his counsel in time to dissuade you from even trying to nail a custard pie to the wall—or an omelet or potato chip or taco, for that matter. What might be a better use of your energy? You could use the nails to build something that will actually be useful to you.

1914) was skilled at creating and using machinery. In his twenties, he diligently expressed those aptitudes. But at age 27, while working in a carriage parts factory, he suffered an accident that blinded him. For several months, he lay in bed, hoping to recuperate. During that time, Muir decided that if his sight returned, he would thereafter devote it to exploring the beauty of the natural world. The miracle came to pass, and for the rest of his life he traveled and explored the wilds of North America, becoming an influential naturalist, author, and early environmentalist. I’d love to see you respond to one of your smaller setbacks—much less dramatic than Muir’s!—with comparable panache, Aries.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “I hid my deepest

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Of all the children

feelings so well I forgot where I placed them,” wrote author Amy Tan. My Scorpio friend Audrey once made a similar confession: “I buried my secrets so completely from the prying curiosity of other people that I lost track of them myself.” If either of those descriptions apply to you, Scorpio, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to secure a remedy. You’ll have extra power and luck if you commune with and celebrate your hidden feelings and buried secrets.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “No Eden valid without serpent.” Novelist Wallace Stegner wrote that pithy riff. I think it’s a good motto for you to use in the immediate future. How do you interpret it? Here’s what I think. As you nourish your robust vision of paradise-on-earth, and as you carry out the practical actions that enable you to manifest that vision, it’s wise to have some creative irritant in the midst of it. That bug, that question, that tantalizing mystery is the key to keeping you honest and discerning. It gives credibility and gravitas to your idealistic striving. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The coco de mer is a palm tree that grows in the Seychelles. Its seed is huge, weighing as much as forty pounds and having a diameter of nineteen inches. The seed takes seven years to grow into its mature form, then takes an additional two years to germinate. Everything I just said about the coco de mer seed reminds me of you, Capricorn. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you’ve been working on ripening an awesome seed for a long time, and are now in the final phase before it sprouts. The Majestic Budding may not fully kick in until 2020, but I bet you’re already feeling the enjoyable, mysterious pressure. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If you throw a pool ball or a bronze Buddha statue at a window, the glass will break. In fact, the speed at which it fractures could reach 3,000 miles per hour. Metaphorically speaking, your mental blocks and emotional obstacles are typically not as crackable. You may smack them with your angry probes and bash them with your desperate pleas, yet have little or no effect. But I suspect that in the coming weeks, you’ll have much more power than usual to shatter those vexations. So I hereby invite you to hurl your strongest blasts at your mental blocks and emotional obstacles. Don’t be surprised if they collapse at unexpectedly rapid speeds.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In the thirteenth century, the Italian city of Bologna was serious about guarding the integrity of its cuisine. In 1250,


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I don’t know if the coming weeks will be an Anais Nin phase for you. But they could be if you want them to. It’s up to you whether you’ll dare to be as lyrical, sensual, deep, expressive, and emotionally rich as she was. In case you decide that YES, you will, here are quotes from Nin that might serve you well. 1. It is easy to love and there are so many ways to do it. 2. My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to find peace with exactly who and what I am. 3. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. 4. Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. 5. It was while helping others to be free that I gained my own freedom.

on the planet, three percent live in the U.S. And yet American children are in possession of forty percent of the world’s toys. In accordance with astrological omens, I hereby invite you to be like an extravagant American child in the coming weeks. You have cosmic permission to seek maximum fun and treat yourself to zesty entertainment and lose yourself in uninhibited laughter and wow yourself with beguiling games and delightful gizmos. It’s playtime!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The ama are Japanese women whose job it is to dive to the sea bottom and fetch oysters bearing pearls. The water is usually cold, and the workers use no breathing apparatus, depending instead on specialized techniques to hold their breath. I propose we make them your inspirational role models. The next few weeks will be a favorable time, metaphorically speaking, for you to descend into the depths in quest of valuables and inspirations.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Renowned Cancerian neurologist Oliver Sacks believed that music and gardens could be vital curative agents, as therapeutic as pharmaceuticals. My personal view is that walking in nature can be as medicinal as working and lolling in a garden. As for music, I would extend his prescription to include singing and dancing as well as listening. I’m also surprised that Sacks didn’t give equal recognition to the healing power of touch, which can be wondrously rejuvenating, either in its erotic or non-erotic forms. I bring these thoughts to your attention because I suspect the coming weeks will be a Golden Age of non-pharmaceutical healing for you. I’m not suggesting that you stop taking the drugs you need to stay healthy; I simply mean that music, nature, and touch will have an extra-sublime impact on your well-being. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you visualize what ancient Rome looked like, it’s possible you draw on memories of scenes you’ve seen portrayed in movies. The blockbuster film Gladiator, starring Russell Crowe and directed by Ridley Scott, may be one of those templates. The weird thing is that Gladiator, as well as many other such movies, were inspired by the grandiose paintings of the ancient world done by Dutch artist Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836–1912). And in many ways, his depictions were not at all factual. I bring this to your attention, Leo, in the hope that it will prod you to question the accuracy and authenticity of your mental pictures. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to get fuzzy and incorrect memories into closer alignment with the truth, and to shed any illusions that might be distorting your understanding of reality.

Weed Oversupply? A case for Oregon supply projections being overblown WWW.BENDSOURCE.COM / SEPTEMBER 5, 2019 / BEND’S INDEPENDENT VOICE


By Josh Jardine Pixabay

Whether Oregon has an oversupply of cannibis depends on who you talk to.


he biggest story about Oregon cannabis this year has been just how much of it we have—by most accounts, a six-year supply. Much like a six-year-old joint, this story caught fire quickly and burned hot. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission made that claim at the end of January. It was viewed with dubious skepticism amongst some in the industry, myself included. But we, the doubting Thomases, may be validated by a new report from Bay Area-based Confident Cannabis, an educational and wholesale platform available to Oregonians. CC thought the numbers were somewhat questionable, and earlier this summer, said they believed the supply was actually in danger of running low in some sectors of the markets. I spoke with Brad Bogus, VP of marketing and growth, about why he believed the OLCC was incorrect in its assessment. “The OLCC admits to taking the most straightforward approach to calculating supply, which is to try and convert all the different products out there into ‘units of THC.’ In other words, it’s a way to make all the different things the same so that you can make a straightforward calculation of supply. METRC, the state’s source of truth on product inventory and ownership [the software system which manages how much cannabis is grown, bought and sold], can’t just spit out a singular inventory total; everything is tracked differently. Concentrates are in grams, flower is in pounds, and then you have edibles sold in packages or units—same with topicals.” Bogus explained that each is different, and their respective amounts are calculated differently. But, as Bogus said, the OLCC attempted to equalize them into THC units and calculate the total. “You can’t pull the current METRC supply from the system as a singular metric. Data modeling needs to be applied. But they’re a regulatory body... and optimized for straightforward, which traded in on accurate.” There’s the matter of the weed trapped in limbo, even though it didn’t

do anything wrong, as though the weed itself is in jail. “When a farm cures their harvest, they may use a storage company to hold that product for them until it’s sold. These storage facilities are METRC licensed, and farms have to officially transfer that inventory within the system to the storage companies,” said Bogus. “But if that farm goes out of business, their inventory is stuck in storage. Storage companies with storage licenses aren’t permitted to sell cannabis they have in stock, because it’s assigned to the original licensee.” Bogus said CC has spoken to storage companies stuck with hundreds of pounds, all of which are calculated into the OLCC totals. He adds that the press overlooked the OLCC’s own summary statement that the oversupply was theoretical. True. The statement read: “As of January 1, 2019, the recreational market has 6.5 years’ worth of theoretical supply in licensees’ inventory accounted for…” Bogus is bothered by all the “ifs,” such as “if all currently pending Producer applications were approved, estimated production would increase to nearly 4,000 metric tons of wet weight,” and "if" supply continues to increase, and "if" more licenses are pushed through that cultivate at the average, and "if" converting supply to wet weight tonnage is in any way accurate, then "theoretically" there is 6.5 years of supply. Lending support to the idea the oversupply is over? Prices have begun to rise. Marijuana Business Daily cites analysis tracking the price of wholesale cannabis in Washington, Colorado, and Oregon. Since April, wholesale cannabis prices have risen 100%. Marijuana Business Daily posits reasons for the increase, such as growers changing to hemp, going out of business and an unexpected “stronger demand and weaker supply beyond the typical summer economic dynamics.” Though scarce, $65 ounces remain available. But budget buyers, fear not! Croptober is just around the corner! Sungrown goodness for the win.
