A

s the population in Central Oregon continues a steady march upward and with visual reminders all over Bend—like the housing developments popping up along the southern reaches of town—there has been a certain amount of chatter over whether growth is good. Part of that discussion is, of course, that growth brings change and competition—competition for parking space downtown, competition for space in roundabouts, and competition for a table at your favorite restaurant. On the institutional level, it is also bringing the possibility of competition for Central Oregon Community College (COCC), which will face increased competition from the OSU-Cascades four-year campus. In this week’s issue, Erin Rook looks at COCC’s golden anniversary at its current location—and, in doing so, gives some insights into what the next five years, let alone the next 25, could mean for COCC. With the increased crowdedness in Bend, our jobs here at the newspaper become both more difficult and more interesting. On Wednesday mornings, for example, our editorial team sits down and picks its 10 “Picks” for your week (page 13)—a job that has become increasingly difficult. Like, this week, we had more than a dozen bands to slot into four remaining spots. And it is not even yet the busy summer season, with near-nightly outdoor concerts. But before I sound off like a grumpy old man (my 46th birthday is next week, after all), I remind myself that in the 1940s, downtown Bend boasted four different venues, and the Tower was a relative newcomer. Nah, busy isn’t bad, and the newcomer may someday be the old-timer. Roll with it, Bend.

IN REPLY TO “NUMBERS DON’T LIE” (4/29)

Way to go [Teton Gravity Research]! Thanks for effectively using your “pro-environment” stance and platform to call out Bend and other heavy polluting mountain towns in your “Ten Most-Polluting...” list. Seriously TGR, you make ripping flicks, but you lost me years ago in the Tower Theatre with some finger wagging bro-brah telling me how he unplugs his toaster every day to avoid phantom electricity load. Subsequently, he hopped in the helicopter to burn 45-55 GPH and shred the gnar. A brief tour of TGR’s website shows the same story, most recreation is dependent on heavy fossil fuel consumption. Like most, I have my hypocrisies involving energy use and fossil fuel consumption; despite giving a lot up, I still drive to the mountains and love a road trip. But I don’t proselytize the good news as some holier than thou green guru. What’s your carbon foot print TGR? Those Eurocopters and ski boats are awful thirsty. Jeremy Jones excepted, TGR seems either oblivious or very adept at insidious green-washing. Physician heal thyself. —Chris Vaughan Despite its disheartening message, I was glad to read the recent “Boot” column regarding Bend’s status as one of the most polluting “mountain towns” in the nation. The Source hit the nail on the head with the assertion that “being an outdoor enthusiast does not necessarily translate into being a good steward of the environment.” While I am as prone to self-righteous evangelizing as the next bike-commuting environmentalist, this column made me pause to examine my own habits. Yes, I bike and walk to work sometimes, but I don’t hesitate to hop in the car if it’s raining or I’m feeling lazy. Yes, I intentionally live close to where I work and shop, and I often walk to the grocery store, but I regularly drive up to Mt. Bachelor, or to Shevlin Park for a run. Whether I feel guilty for slipping up once and a while, or pat myself on the back for being a relatively good steward of the environment (hey, I work for a conservation nonprofit!), I ultimately know that my personal

choices and those of each individual member of our community are not what landed Bend on this list. The culture in Bend, and Central Oregon at large, is undeniably car-centric. Just look at the debate swirling around the controversial topics of the day: Galveston redevelopment, Mirror Pond, and the new OSU Cascades Campus, to name a few. Business owners tell me that people from Northwest Crossing “just aren’t going to bike” a mile or two to patronize businesses on Galveston. Replacing each and every parking space that could be lost if the riverfront parking lots are redeveloped under the Mirror Pond vision is taken as a given. And how on earth do we expect college students to exist in Bend without their own personal vehicle? How could OSU-Cascades have the audacity to think that students could arrive on campus without a car? If we want to change our status as one of the worst polluters among our peers, we must question the assumption that we will always be as dependent on our cars as we are today. We also need to demand that local policy makers work to give everyone in Bend (not just those of us who live on the west side) safe, viable options for getting around without depending solely on a personal vehicle. Finally, each of us does have a responsibility to question our own driving habits. Could you ride your mountain bike to the trail instead of putting it on your bike rack just to drive five miles to the Phil’s trailhead? Could you carpool up to Mt. Bachelor with buddies rather than driving by yourself? And please, stop complaining about traffic when you, driving by yourself in your car, are part of traffic. Let’s get creative about how we reach our destination, rather than continuing to place convenience over

the health of our planet. —Gena Goodman-Campbell Numbers don’t lie, but the people pushing them often do. It’s a simple exercise using Berkley’s interactive map to find a number of mountain towns that have worse pollution than Bend. For whatever reason the folks at Teton Gravity omitted many of these from their little list. To give the list a bit of perspective Yellowstone National park comes in with 43.9 metric tons of CO2. Here’s a link to Berkley’s map: coolclimate.berkeley.edu/maps —Philip Robert

Letter of the Week!

Oh, Philip, Pee Wee Herman once (often) said, “I know you are, but what am I?” While other towns and areas also may have bad pollution and emissions rates, it doesn’t excuse Bend. How about washing that down with a cup of coffees from Palate? E.J. Pettinger’s

The Issue: Our Forest Service seems to be stepping up their number of prescribed burns each season, starting in the spring when the weather is nice and clear, and continuing through the fall...when the weather is nice and clear. Consequently, our purported «300 Days of Sun» are often shrouded in thick, smelly smoke. By my estimates, perhaps up to 5,000 acres (?) may be burned through this process each year—all in the name of healthy forest management and fire fuel abatement. In contrast, however, our Forest Service regionally manages 1.6 million acres chock-full of diseased or dead trees, many from pine beetles, along with all the other combustible fuels one would expect to find, including branches, brush, etc.   The Question: So why is our Forest Service so interested in conducting prescribed burns to mitigate fire risk on only a minuscule fraction of their acreage under management? Does it really reduce the “overall” risk of forest fires, as they say?     The Cost to Our Health: We have all turned on the local news to hear the weatherman report a new prescribed burn, repeating guidance from our local Forest Service folks that, “people with asthma, allergies and other breathing problems, especially the elderly, are advised to stay inside with the windows closed.” What further health risks do these dozens of airborne carcinogens from smoke pose to children and pregnant women? Based on numerous outside sources—including our Forest Service, itself—the risk to public health may be far greater than what we have been otherwise led to believe. The Solution: The idea of reducing combustible fuels to mitigate fire risk is not the issue—obviously there’s a clear benefit in doing so. The issue is how to do it safely and effectively, and whether it really makes a difference on such a small scale toward lowering overall fire risk. The Forest Service has already been clearing other large swaths of forestland, “mechanically,” using light equipment, without burning. So why not continue this smokeless approach on an even larger scale, and completely eliminate the prescribed burning?   I believe, at a minimum, areas near communities should certainly be a cleanup priority, and I would even support further efforts under the right circumstances if it helped create employment. I know I’m not alone when I don’t want to see our beautiful snow capped Cascades shrouded in brown haze; or smell the stench of smoke; or feel the health of our fellow community members—including children,

pregnant women, and the elderly—is being needlessly put at risk. I’m also concerned for our community’s reputation: How does all this smoke affect the quality of life we’ve worked so hard to build and preserve? Tourism is obviously a vital industry here. Are we risking our reputation as the sunny and pristine “Playground of the Northwest”?   —Bruce Englund

THE GLASS SLIPPER NEWS

A Success Story!

A little more than a year ago, voters approved Measure 9-94, which ratcheted up the transient room tax (TRT) in the City of Bend from 9 to 10.4 percent. A portion of the funds generated from that additional tax on tourists was—and is—directed toward a cultural tourism fund for local cultural organizations to spend on marketing campaigns outside the region; namely, to attract more tourists from Eugene, Portland, and Seattle to cultural offering here in Bend. On Monday, the Bend Cultural Tourism Commission recommended recipients for the first round of funding to Visit Bend, the organization charged with investing the funds. Seventeen organizations—both nonprofit and for-profit—applied for the funds. (See News, page 7.) In total, a request of $680,710 was made for the existing $125,000 available. Ultimately, nine of the applicants were selected for funding, with BendFilm and Atelier 6000 topping the list. If Visit Bend approves the recommendations as anticipated, Bend Film will receive $26,000 to market its 12th annual film festival, and A6 will get $13,500 (roughly one-quarter of its annual budget) to present and market a photo exhibit by Edward Curtis. Grants ranged from $26,000 for BendFilm to $9,000 for World Muse to produce and market its fourth annual conference. Said most directly: The cultural tourism fund is what can be termed an unconditional success story of taxation and spending. While there are simmering debates about how much more Bend wants to encourage tourism, there are so many economic and cultural benefits that the increased TRT is bolstering that let’s not complain about the fly in the chardonnay right now. Let’s just toast to a clever idea that is being executed smoothly. For starters, the TRT is sustainable funding. It generates its funds from current tourism revenue and, in turn, invests that money into marketing Bend’s cultural offerings for the off-seasons. This type of funding mechanism is the opposite of biting the hand that feeds Bend (shaking the hand that feeds us?). Bottom line: This does not tax current residents, but does provide locals with increased economic opportunities and strengthens cultural organizations. (Also, although lost in the shuffle a bit, the TRT also channels funds, about $1 for every $2 for the tourism fund, to support local police and fire services.) Sure, there are imperfections and some have questioned whether for-profit organizations should qualify for the funds (Les Schwab Amphitheater received $15,750 to promote concerts outside the area). But overall, the process was smooth, and the benefits from the cultural tourism fund should be much grander than the $125,000 granted on Monday by the Bend Cultural Tourism Commission. From a basic economic analysis, there is a major ripple effect here: In the news cycle on Monday and Tuesday after the grantees were announced, the funding received healthy news coverage throughout the state. Oregon Public Broadcasting correspondent April Baer was dispatched from Portland to cover the story, and interviewed Bend Film Executive Director Todd Looby for a story that ran repeated times over the next 24 hours. Averaging nearly 400,000 listeners weekly, and a heavy concentration of those in the Portland area, this is remarkable earned media, worth almost as much as the $26,000 granted to BendFilm to market its festival outside the Bend region—and, let’s face it, NPR listeners are the bull’s eye demographic for a documentary and artsy film festival. That type of earned media is worth its weight in gold, so to speak. More robustly, an increase in tourists visiting Bend translates into increased revenue, and revenue from outside the region. A general rule of thumb is that each tourist spends about $200 on food, lodging, and tickets every day he or she is in the region—which means increased revenue for area hotels (and Airbnb rentals), restaurants, and breweries. For example, the Tower Theatre received $11,000 to host an a capella festival in late February. Roughly calculated, if that marketing campaign brings just 20 people from outside the region, they will generate that same amount back for local hotels and restaurants over the three-day event. That’s smart spending.

Cultural Tourism Fund $130,000 - 7.5%

Approximate numbers based on Visit Bend statistics. As Bend’s reputation as a tourist destination grows, not every season benefits equally. Traditionally, the summer months—with their abundant sunshine and plethora of outdoor recreation and festivals—have drawn the bulk of the out-of-towners. But the winter months and the so-called “shoulder seasons” are due for a boost thanks to the pending disbursement of the first round of Bend Cultural Tourism Fund grants. “The Bend Cultural Tourism fund is an exciting step for our community,” says Visit Bend Executive Director Doug LaPlaca. “Arts and cultural programs are a big part of what makes Bend such an amazing place to live. They also have the power to attract visitors during the slow period, and this program will give those programs significant support.” The Visit Bend board is expected to approve the recommendations of the Cultural Tourism Commission, which met Monday to finalize its proposed distribution of funds. The Commission received applications from 17 local organizations and events, seeking a combined total of $680,710 for everything from a Nordic skiing exhibit to an opera based on a local author’s novel. “My understanding is that the board will accept the commission’s recommendations based on the level of work and review that went into the panel process,” says consultant Shannon Planchon. Not all the proposals were recommended for funding. The commission members ranked each proposal based on a predetermined rubric (those with a conflict of interest—such as Source Publisher and Lay It Out Events owner Aaron Switzer—recused themselves from weighing in on their own projects). The top two rated applications were recommended for the largest portion of their requested funding. Coming out on top was BendFilm Festival, with a score of about 93 out of 100. The fest asked for $35,000 and was recommended to receive a little more than 70 percent of that amount, or $26,000. Following close behind, Atelier 6000 requested $18,000, but was granted $13,500. All told, more than half of the 17 proposals were recommended to receive some amount of funding, with the com-

mission advising that the latter seven receive 45 percent of the requested funds. As funds continue to roll in at unprecedented and unanticipated levels, the Commission may opt to grant funds more than once per year. Ultimately, the grant cycles are at the discretion of the 13 appointed commissioners and the grant administrator. “The City of Bend disperses monthly payments to Visit Bend equal to 34 percent of total [transient room tax] collections,” LaPlaca explains. “Visit Bend then funds the BCTF on a monthly basis in the amount of 7.5 percent of Visit Bend’s total TRT revenue.” Though the transient room tax—a lodging tax paid by visitors to hotels, motels, and vacation rentals—will eventually increase to 10.4 percent, the initial phase-in of the 1.4 percent increase brings that rate up to 10 percent. Those funds are divvied up by the City, with 63 percent going into the City’s general fund, 3 percent to Bend police and fire, and 34 percent to Visit Bend for tourism promotion. Of the cut going to Visit Bend, the majority—some 58 percent—goes to general tourism marketing, with 7.5 percent disbursed into the Bend Cultural Tourism Fund. “The City hires Visit Bend to invest that 34 percent in marketing programs to attract tourists to Bend. Visit Bend operates many marketing programs, and the Bend Cultural Tourism Fund (BCTF) is one of them,” LaPlaca says. “The mission of the BCTF is to fund marketing grants for arts and cultural organizations to attract additional tourists to Bend during the shoulder seasons and winter months.” TRT revenues have seen steady growth over the past year, with each month reaching a historic high. Last November, the year’s slowest month, the TRT brought in more than $280,000. At the high point last July, that number skyrocketed to nearly $850,000. It’s that dramatic discrepancy between the vibrant summer months and the slower seasons that the BCTF is intended to address. Here’s how the successful grant applicants plan to do that (in order of their ranking from highest to lowest).

BendFilm Asked for: $35,000 Awarded: $26,000 The plan: To keep on keeping on, attracting visitors from the region and nation to its annual film festival.

The plan: To prepare a major exhibit highlighting the history of Nordic skiing.

Atelier 6000 Asked for: $18,000 Awarded: $13,500 The plan: To present an exhibit of the photos of Edward Curtis— known for his portraits of Native Americans and other Western topics—and host a number of related events.

Those who applied but were not selected for funding in this cycle (and how much they asked for) were Stage Right Productions ($9,410), Lay It Out Events/ WinterFest ($15,000), Bend WebCAM ($14,850), The Workhouse ($21,500), High Desert Chamber Music ($18,000), OperaBend ($41,000), Crow’s Feet Commons ($65,750), and Bend’s Backyard Farm Tour ($5,800).

The results of Bend 2030’s April Transportation Forum are in. The first revelation is unsurprising: People want more from their transportation systems and infrastructure. But the follow-up is less anticipated: They are willing to pay for it. When presented with four different entities—the community at large, local governments, transit riders, and private industry—the 175 attendees showed a clear preference for having the community at large carry the burden of funding public transit. When the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council surveyed the public in 2013, support for a transit property tax was in the low 40 percent. Forum attendees were most supportive of a gas tax, a tourism-related tax such as on food and beverage, and a studded tire fee to generate funding. A property tax was the fourth most-suggested option, but with considerably less support that the first three ideas.

In terms of how transportation funding should be allocated, forum attendees divided play money nearly evenly among three top priorities: safer bike lanes, street maintenance, and sidewalk improvements. Overall, the group defined “good transit” as frequent, affordable, and available to everyone, and supported “complete” neighborhoods, designed to encourage multimodal transportation such as biking and walking. Attendees said current barriers to walking and biking include a lack of sidewalks and bike lanes, physical barriers such as highways and railroad crossings, and a lack of driver education about pedestrians and cyclists. Bend 2030 plans to follow up the forum and report with a community-wide survey this summer, which will allow the group to gather more statistically valid data.

Growing Up

COCC celebrates 50 years on the butte BY ERIN ROOK

COCC, BEFORE AND AFTER ITS MOVE TO THE BUTTE. PHOTOS COURTESY COCC.

When Ron Bryant first enrolled at Central Oregon Community College back in 1955, he chose the college for the same reason many students do today. “It was within driving distance and it was affordable,” recalls Bryant, a Redmond attorney who previously chaired the COCC board and now serves as the college’s legal counsel. “I wanted to continue the education, but I didn’t have the ability or funds to go to a four-year college.” Today’s students, however, may not hold the same definition of “driving distance.” Bryant made the drive from Madras each day to attend classes in the college’s original home—the basement of Bend High School. Though the school was small, and his commute was long, Bryant participated in a number of conventional collegiate activities. A journalism major, he served as a founding editor of The Broadside student newspaper, worked on the yearbook staff, sang with the Night Hawk choir, and played on the basketball team. “It was really small, probably a little step up from high school,” he recalls fondly. That meant small class sizes, plenty of interaction with instructors, and a graduating class of just six students. But like the college, Bryant grew up and went on to greater accomplishments. He finished his bachelor’s at Lewis and Clark College and got his law degree from Northwestern College of Law in Portland. By the time he returned to Redmond to practice law in 1964, COCC was on the verge of its own big move—the establishment of the campus on Awbrey Butte. The move was made possible by a 140-acre land donation from the Coats family, who would go on to be one of the largest landowners in the region. Though they chose to remain anonymous at the time of the donation, the family will be recognized in a ceremony celebrating COCC’s 50th anniversary of the Bend campus on May 14 from 4 to 7 pm. It was around this time that Bryant reconnected with the college, serving on the board of the COCC Foundation, where he helped launch scholarship programs. From there, he ran for a position on the college’s board, serving as chair during the 25th anniversary of the school’s formation. “The campus, having moved from a high school building to up there, it was more of a college experience,” Bryant recalls. “It was beginning to grow up.” That growth has required the college to remain agile, shifting effortlessly to accommodate changing needs and resources. During the 1990s, the college boasted robust arts programming. Cameron Clark, founder of C3 Events, came to COCC in 1990 with experience as both a student event programmer and a college administrator. After connecting with then director of student activities Mike Smith, Clark began programming and managing arts and cultural events on campus. “We had a very innovative independent contract that ‘outsourced’ most of the on and off campus student arts/events to C3 Events to program and manage,” Clark explains. ”Part of our contract required us to train, advise, and hire COCC students to work on all of these events—which we loved.” The contract ran from 1992 to 2005 and produced, on average,

more than 30 arts-related events each academic year. These included lectures, emerging artists and musicians, films, and comedians, as well as some big name visitors including Maya Angelou, Ralph Nader, Tim Wise, and Winona LaDuke. But that was a different time, Clark explains. “The campus was truly a hub for the arts for this community during this era,” he says. “There was no Tower Theatre, and the college was using the arts, constructing a very tangible bridge between itself and the community at large—both students and non students.” Eventually, funding for that collaboration dried up, explains College Relations Director Ron Paradis, who has been with COCC for 23 years. “We’re very comprehensive and try to be everything for everybody, but you can’t always do that,” Paradis explains, noting that Oregon ranks 47th in the country for public funding of higher education. As a result, he explains, sometimes programs get cut and tuition goes up. But that doesn’t mean the college has been atrophying. Where some programs have downsized or gone by the wayside, others have emerged to replace them. In the past decade or two, he explains, the college has increased its offering of technical programs in response to the employment needs of the region. Among those newer programs are medical assisting, dental assisting, massage therapy, pharmacy technician, veterinary technician, aviation, and expanded offerings in nursing and automotive. In that sense, the college continues to serve as a connecting point between high school and either the working world, or further higher education. And many of those affiliated with the college say it’s a point of distinction between community colleges and four-year universities. “I think it’s a lot different. The main kind of purpose [of community college] is to reach students and others who cannot afford to go away or afford to go to a big college. Those are expensive things to do,” COCC counsel Bryant says. “I looked at it as being a bridge, between four years of high school and four years of college.” Bryant, who attended COCC in the 1950s, says all three of his children attended and graduated from COCC before transferring to four-year schools. Today, two are lawyers, and one is a supervisor with the Deschutes County Mental Health Department. Even as OSU-Cascades emerges as a fully-fledged four-year university, Paradis says he doesn’t see COCC changing much. “We assume we’ll shift a bit, but a comprehensive community colleges offers a number of things four-year universities don’t,” he explains. Paradis says he anticipates a dip in enrollment as some students choose to start their academic careers at OSU-Cascades rather than COCC, but he expects many will still take advantage of the two-plus-two opportunity the two schools present. Ultimately, he says, the college will remain true to its mission to be affordable and accessible, and will continue to evolve to meet the changing needs of future generations—academic, cultural, and otherwise. “We’ve been here for 65 years and have become a critical part in the community in a number of ways, including some of the cultural aspects,” Paradis says, “and we’ll continue to do those things.”

METAL CELLO—Local musician Billy Mickelson is only 30 years old, but he’s already releasing his 30th album. And, no, he hasn’t been putting albums out since birth—just for the last 12 years. His latest, WHITE VERSVS BLAK, draws out the cello’s natural darkness and weaves it into a half-cello music, half-blak metal creation. Haunting and one-of-a-kind. 8 pm. Volcanic Theater Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5-ish.

FIGHTS—If pay-per-view seems too removed, be there to smell the sweat and blood, and hear the crack of bones. A kinder-and-gentler (if there is such a thing) version of cage fights, but still all of the athleticism and brute force. 7 pm. Midtown Ballroom, 51 NW Greenwood Ave. $30.

Third Seven Album Release

Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St. Matinee $6, evening $10. Plus $1 historical theater renovation fee.

DOGS—Get along little puppy!

Hot Spot Pompeii

THEATER—It’s 79 A.D. in the ill-fated city of Pompeii. But as pressure begins to build beneath the Earth’s surface, tensions are rising above ground as well.

Riding in on a Bear

Portlander Laura Ivancie says music runs in her family

SUGGESTS... BY ANNE PICK

SARA JANE WILTERMOOD

All You All Just cue up the single “Supernatural.” Yeah, insanely talented! And local! “Innocence of Coincidence” has a garage rock sound distinctly its own, yet slightly reminiscent of The Black Keys. Blending psychedelia and garage rock, in a vein similar to The Dead Weather, All You All plays songs that inspire modest head banging and hip swaying. MoonRoom also perform. 9 pm. Thursday, May 7. Volcanic Theater Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

PHOTO BY ADAM TISCHNER SUBMITTED BY LAURA IVANCIE.

Laura Ivancie had a vision. A vision of a woman riding on a bear, weapon in hand. Strangely enough, this obscure image coincided exactly with one that her friend, Mike Friolo, a graphic designer for Adidas and Nike, had. So, naturally, he put it on a T-shirt for Ivancie’s fans. (Check it out at store.lauraivancie.com.) While one could write it off as a gimmick to show up Katy Perry and her Super Bowl lion, acoustic singer-songwriter turned folktronic/triphop artist, Ivancie says that the image has an autobiographical meaning for her. “It is a symbol of fearlessness,” she says. “The girl is facing her fear on the bear. You could look at a girl riding a bear and think she is stupid/foolish, but also brave and fearless, a hunter.” And yes, that’s more than just symbolism. That’s the way Ivancie was born: fearless and bold. Laura is the granddaughter of former Portland mayor Frank Ivancie, who held office from 1981 to 1985. As mayor, her grandfather left indelible marks on Portland, overseeing the construction of the Portland Building, and most of the MAX Blue Line. In his bid for re-election, though, he was bumped from office in a surprise upset by populist Bud Clark, a local tavern owner and slight eccentric who gained national fame for, among other things, posing with his trench coat open and flashing a statue, with the tagline, “Expose yourself to art.” Her grandfather’s legacy and tenacity is something that Laura clearly has inherited. She points to a family tradition of standing behind a cause, and recent appearances in April for benefit concerts for Oregon Music News, Portland Radio Project, and the Oregon Food Bank. “I think there is some fight in this dog,” she says about herself. “I want to put stuff out there that gets people to think about things.

There is a streak of people in my family that is into politics and ways you can get people together. I have more freedom as a singer.” Ivancie will play at McMenamin’s in Bend, along with violinist/ guitarist Tim Snider on May 13. “There is a sort of an element of surprise when you come see me play,” teases Ivancie. “You don’t know what you are going to get, but it’s going to be interesting.” She doesn’t even indicate whether her show in Bend will be acoustic or electronic. “I will probably be doing both,” she assures. Ivancie describes her evolution from acoustic to electronic as fluid—there is always room for both, she says. But she admits that her more recent fascination with electronic music is fun. “I’m enjoying myself because it is a total change in my audience and venue—more sexy, down tempo, viby,” she says. “I still play acoustic, raw versions of songs I have been writing. I want to blend the two down the road—build on both sounds. I don’t want to put myself in a box. I don’t know what it is going to sound like, but what is important is that I am working on it.” Her most recent EP, Little Girl, blends instrumentation and electronic accents that give it a haunting yet thoughtful vibe. “The music I tend to be drawn to deals with facing your shadows in life and relationships—bringing up things that are hard to talk about, that dark side,” she says. Ivancie has also recently launched a Patreon campaign (patreon. com/lauraivancie) to connect more intimately with her fans and to raise funds to put out more EPs. Laura Ivancie, with Tim Snider 7-10 pm, Wednesday, May 13 McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond Street, Bend Free

School Songs BY JOSH GROSS

SCAN THE QR CODE

This issue of The Source looks into Bend’s local community college. And it turns out, school is a topic that songwriters have been exploring for some time as well. Sounds like a Mixtape to us. We’ve found some great songs about the trials and successes of the educational process, with everyone from Nirvana to Jurassic 5 to “Monster School,” from the Broadway musical, Avenue Q. And what school mixtape would be complete without classics like “Schools Out for Summer,” from Alice Cooper and “Rock and Roll High School,” from The Ramones? Paired with tunes from newbs like The Wombats and Foxygen, it’s an educational process.

The Mondegreens Youthful exuberance? Tight harmonies? A blend of heartfelt folk and modern indie rock? Do we need to go on? Think Fleet Foxes and The Avett Brothers meet Radiohead. The Mondegreens, four friends with a common belief in honest music, create just that. The band blends exposingly honest lyrics with tight harmonies to create an inspiring and unabashedly indie sound. The Chico-based band’s album, Kid Tell Time, plays solidly through, with a little something for everyone—at least everyone who enjoys classic folk and indie rock. It might be tough to see this up and coming band again for free. 7 pm. Saturday, May 9. Broken Top Bottle Shop, 1740 NW Pence Ln #1. No cover.

The English Beat Remember The English Beat? The ska band that also combines reggae and new wave beats to create incredibly danceable beats formed in 1978, and hadn’t release a new album since 1982’s Special Beat Service. Last year, the band’s lead singer, Dave Wakeling, started a PledgeMusic campaign (think KickStarter for albums) to raise funds to record the band’s first new album in 32 years. Now, The English Beat returns to touring to bring its funky ska beats to a new generation of skanking rude boys and girls. Don’t worry, that’s not offensive; when you dance to ska music it’s called skanking, not dancing. 8 pm. Wednesday, May 13. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St. $37, plus $2 historical preservation fee.

Not So Lonely in San Angelo Los Lonely Boys find community in music

Saturday, July 11, 2015 Bend, Oregon

BY ERIC SKELTON

Driven by:

PROBABLY NOT PLAYING ANY ABBA COVERS, 5/7.

When the shimmering guitar riffs and instantly catchy melodies of the Los Lonely Boys’ hit single “Heaven” chased the song up the Billboard Top 40 charts in 2004, a literal world of possibilities opened up to the trio of brothers from San Angelo, Texas. With the major label backing of Epic Records, the obvious choice would have been to bolt from their modest hometown in search of brighter lights. Wisely, though, they stayed true to the relatable down-to-earth spirit that had gained them so much attention in the first place and remained home in San Angelo. Their rootsy blend of southern blues, country rock, and Tejano music (a sound they simply call “Texican Rock’n’Roll”) wouldn’t have felt as natural coming from any other setting. “A lot of people would have taken off to L.A. or New York or maybe even the other side of the world,” explains Jojo Garza (bass, vocals). “But we’re just regular cats who love where we come from. This place means a lot to us. We want to raise our kids here and hopefully they’ll have the same kind of values as we did.” After entrenching themselves in the local community (drummer Ringo Garza has even made a habit of substitute teaching at his kids’ school), they’ve felt the love from the city right back. Just last month, San Angelo honored them by proclaiming April 11, 2015 “Los Lonely Boys Homecoming Day.” In turn, the organic sense of family and community they interact with every day has steeped into their music—resulting in the kind of feel-good southern music you’d expect to hear wafting through small neighborhoods and summertime backyard barbecues. “Our influences come from our children, wives, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, cousins, and extended friends and family,” adds Jojo. “We’re influenced by everyday things: love, life, and appreciation.” Through 20 years of relentless touring, multiple recording contracts, and eight studio albums, the Garza brothers have managed to hold onto the infectious positive attitude that breathed so much life into their early recordings. Unlike many bands in similar phases of their careers, the Los Lonely Boys still love performing the song that got them famous (“Heaven”) night after night—and seem genuinely excited that they get to keep making music every day. “I get excited by opening my eyes every single morning and being able to say, ‘Ahh, I’m here still. I get to try harder again today,’” Jojo reflects. Their longevity can largely be attributed to a bond unlike any other: brotherhood. Following in the footsteps of their father—who was in a band called The Falcones with his brothers years ago—music and family has always gone hand in hand. They have a tough time imagining life any other way. “We’ve always been close. It’s just another one of those extensions of who we are as a family,” says JoJo. “That’s why we’re able to stay together. We’re not the kind of cats who focus on who’s the leader or any of that kind of stuff. We’re a unit and together we’re going to keep doing this until God says otherwise.” Los Lonely Boys 7 pm, Thursday, May 7 Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St. $30.50

The population of elephants in the state of Oregon has increased by two! Wildlife Safari rolled out an extra-large red carpet in February to welcome two new female elephants, Liz and Valerie, to their herd, which is now five strong. Now that they have settled in, the two “pachyderm princesses” are ready to meet all of the Oregonian bipeds. Cookies and punch will be provided, but the two newcomers will probably stick to the standard 400 pounds of vegetation and 50 gallons of water that they each eat every day, thank you very much. 1-3 pm. Wildlife Safari. $6-$12.

At the request of a local Source Weekly reader (and mama-to-be), I’ve compiled my go-to list of motherly tips. “Not parenting clichés,” she specified. “Just simple, meaningful suggestions.” 1.Take it or leave it. It’s the best part about advice. 2. Allow yourself to feel. Elation, anger, heartbreak, confusion—let your feelings happen, but don’t let them consume you. 3. Step out of yourself. When #2 fails (and it will), take some deep breaths and consider another perspective. Assess the situation and remember how tiny you (and your child) really are in the universe. 4. Always be honest. You can still protect without fib-filled sheltering. Your trust is invaluable. Candidness is key. 5. Show and tell. Let your actions speak loudly as you teach compassion, gratitude, humility, and empathy. 6. Find and appreciate humor. Laugh with your child. Laugh at yourself. 7. Shower the people you love with love. Hugs and kisses are the ultimate healers—for your little one and for you. 8. Be consistent, but be flexible. Mama’s Ten Commandments should be implemented regularly and open for improvement. 9. Trust your gut. You’re more intuitive than you probably think (and yes, motherly instincts do exist). 10. Exemplify respect. Your relationships, friendships, and everyday encounters should be a testament to kindness. 11. Keep a leash on your complaining. In the scheme of things, it’s probably pretty petty (see #3). 12. Get creative. Those tried-and-true parenting methods are bound to get rusty. Try something different. 13. Give your full attention. Don’t just hear;

listen. It often requires some serious patience, but your kiddo is worth every second. And those todo lists and work deadlines can (and should) wait. 14. Set realistic rules and appropriate consequences. Sorry, but junior just isn’t going to finish his broccoli every time (or perhaps ever, for that matter). Are you really going to make him sleep at the dinner table? 15. Encourage ample outdoor adventure. Limit the electronics and expose your little broods to nature. Take them camping, hiking, climbing, swimming, etcetera, etcetera. 16. Use positive words. Your age and authority aren’t grounds for belittlement, and labels will create damaging complexes. Keep the glass half-full. 17. Read, sing, dance, play, draw, paint, and build. The more, the merrier. 18. Don’t take it so personally. As disciplinarian, you’re naturally an easy target. But despite their initial sting, those hurtful comments usually aren’t as malicious as they seem. 19. Foster independence. Let go a little. Your kids are never going to learn if you keep doing it for them. 20. Support their curiosity and individuality. Encourage them to question the “facts” and form their own beliefs. Accept their differences as special and unique. 21. Be involved. Pay attention to their needs and interests. Get to know their friends. Support their biggest dreams. 22. Lighten up. Keep the sticks out of your butt, accept the imperfections, and don’t compare yourself to other parents. 23. Give meaningful praise. “Good job” is far too hollow without “I like/appreciate/am proud of the way you…” 24. Know when to bite your tongue and walk away. Yes, you’ll live to regret those hot-headed, harsh words. Pick your battles and focus on what really matters (see #16). 25. Be sensitive and considerate. Own up to your faults, be genuine, and apologize. And while you’re at it, forgive yourself. 26. Be a parent and a friend. Contrary to popular opinion, you can be both. 27. Love—and take time for—yourself. Your sanity is key for (everyone’s) survival.

Erupting in Laughter

BY KELSEY ROOK

A sitcom as hot as lava BY JARED RASIC

IN RETROSPECT, PERHAPS THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE WORRIED ABOUT THE VOLCANO. HOT SPOT IN POMPEII OPENS ON FRIDAY. PHOTO BY 2ND STREET THEATER.

Most plays are written to fit snugly into a genre so they’re easier to market to an audience. Comedy. Drama. Tragedy. Historical. But local playwright Suzan Noyes’ new show, Hot Spot in Pompeii, is a mash-up, a delightful breath of fresh air that takes a screwball romantic farce and plops it smack dab next to Mt. Vesuvius as the bowels of the famous volcano start to rumble. With a gorgeous set, Hot Spot in Pompeii takes place in 79 A.D. as the Nobilius and Maxima families prepare to marry their children to each other. The patriarchs of the families both have massive olive oil concerns and figure a marriage between the families will create an olive oil monopoly the likes of which the Romans had never seen. But the children are less excited, as son Harmonius Profunda Nobilius has just finished music school and wants to be a balladeer; he could care one drop about getting into the olive oil business. Not to mention, he’s in love with a beautiful sheepherder. Meanwhile, daughter Beautissima Robustus Maxima doesn’t want him, either. She is attracted to a rough and tumble mafioso. The play is set as the families meet at a villa by Mt. Vesuvius to discuss dowries.

The pending eruption serves as a pot boiler, and a somewhat weird one at that; after all, it is a comedic farce through and through, so setting something so light and slapsticky against an inevitable ending of mass death creates a wonderful tension. “Sometimes I wake up with complete stories in my head,” Noyes told me. “This one was about a frustrated artiste; human issues remain the same regardless of the era you’re born in. A kid writes songs and dad wants to force him into the family business and get married—grow up. I embroidered on this, set it in Pompeii and had fun with silly Roman names. The rest is history.” The enduring theme of the play is the idea that history can both preserve and erase—a charming dichotomy—but really the star is the script, with a staccato flow (of dialogue, not lava) that keeps the show lively, and erupts with several laugh out loud moments. Hot Spot in Pompeii 7:30 pm Friday-Saturday, 3 pm Sunday 2nd Street Theater, 220 NE Lafayette Ave. $16-$19

In speaking about the work of an artist, painter Georgia O’Keefe once said, “Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.” O’Keefe was a talented painter of oversized flowers and New Mexico landscapes who, at the ripe age of 86, took up pottery after developing macular degradation that limited her vision. This talented and artistic adventuress inspires me to further my own self-education in the arts into new (and sometimes awkward) uncharted territories. I think of creating art as a kind of visual diary—a means of expression that can relieve stress, stimulate dusty brain cells, and lead to new social connections and community-building. But taking on a new artistic venture as an adult can be intimidating. Fortunately, we live in a place where arts learning is celebrated and local artists are more than willing to share their expertise. Arts Station in Bend is a one such place. The local nonprofit’s purpose is to “inspire creativity through arts education and to advocate for integration of the arts in all aspects of community life in Central Oregon.” All summer long, Arts Station will embark on an “Art & Wine” Series, pairing tasty adult beverages with artistic technique in classes ranging from fused glass to Zen watercolor. They’ll even offer a Georgia O’Keefe-inspired bone-and-flower-painting class this June that is right up my alley. If you feel more comfortable behind a camera lens, why not learn a lesson or two from local landscape photographer Jeffery Murray? At the tender young age of 30, Murray’s prints have been featured in publications such as National Geographic and on the Travel Channel—and he’s spent the last 8 years training his lens on the wilds of Central Oregon. His July and August workshops still have spaces available and Murray promises to take participants to beloved local sites such as Smith Rock as well as some of his favorite “secret spots.” As the promises of summer— and new adventures in art—beckon, it is with sadness that we say goodbye to one of Bend’s fine art galleries, Paul Scott Gallery. The family-owned gallery closed its doors this month after three years in business. I wish the Eubankses the best of luck with their existing Gallery Russia in Scottsdale, Arizona, and hope that this sad news might remind our art-buying community of the importance of shopping locally and supporting Central Oregon’s many impressive art galleries, studios, and collectives.

CHOW

Simple but Elegant

Sip brings the vineyards to Galveston BY ALLI MILES

Emy Sanchez is a Central Oregon native who gave up the corporate life to pursue her true passion: wine. Sanchez previously worked as a wine importer and marketer. She gained expertise in those jobs, but owning her own wine bar was her dream—albeit one that felt like a pipe dream. That is, until last fall when commercial space along Galveston became available—a charming, tiny, two bedroom house that was formerly a real estate office. She could not pass up the opportunity, and Sanchez, along with her husband Brad, renovated and opened a stylish, modern wine bar in just seven weeks. Sitting at Sip next to the open patio doors on a Wednesday evening, I glance around at tables of women with wine flights in front of them, listening to the hum of energetic conversations, and feeling the sunshine coming in through the door is a distinctly urbane and sophisticated ambiance, as if sitting at a stylish wine bar in Portland or a busy tasting room at a Willamette Valley vineyard. But even with that urbane feeling, the Galveston vibe is there. There are fire pits, wooden tables and chairs, plenty of outdoor seating, and a casual atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable. The staff is friendly and keen to offer suggestions and answer questions. “We wanted a warm, neighborhood feel,” explained Sanchez. “We want wine to be approachable, not overwhelming or intimidating.” Keeping it simple, but also interesting, is the mantra at Sip. That’s why the menu includes about 35 different wines from around the world, organized by variations within the palate that people know they like: ”Our Friend, The Blend,” “Spice is Nice,” “Big & Rich,” “Mellow Whites,” “The Classics,” and “Bubbles.” There’s also a “We Heart Oregon” category, giving a nod to our locavores, and “Sip Favorites,” offering a selection of staff favorites. Patrons can order by the glass, the bottle, or a flight that includes a sampling of all three wines in each category. We tried a flight that arrived in a small wooden rack holding three glasses of wine (just the way a beer flight looks at Crux). Sip also has a simple but well-rounded (and evolving) food menu that features small plates, soups, salads, and gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. On the server’s suggestion, we tried the cambozola stuffed dates, which are presented atop a bed of thinly sliced Granny Smith apples and drizzled with house made parsley olive oil and balsamic. We also sampled the flavorful tomato pesto crostini: crostini bread topped with Tillamook white cheddar

MICRO REVIEW

Grow, Beer, Grow

From the big boys to one-man operations, Central Oregon beer is expanding BY KEVIN GIFFORD

The old saw makes the rounds every time we hear some piece of good news about Bend beer: Surely, surely, there’s no way this region can support yet another brewery. But, despite a couple of closings in recent years—and let’s face it, the beer they were producing has not been missed—Central Oregon’s breweries never seem to run out of paying customers. The result: Expansion, a topic the Source last discussed in depth a year ago. Just in the past couple of months, the Source has discussed expansion efforts at Silver Moon, currently building a new production facility in Redmond to keep up with demand in Oregon and Washington, and Three Creeks, set to officially open their brand-new Sisters brewhouse during Central Oregon Beer Week in May. But that’s not all the expansion Bend-area breweries are enjoying (or stressing out over) right now. From big to small, expansion is the watchword on everyone’s minds—both within Oregon and, for our hometown’s biggest brand name, nationwide. Rumors have been spreading around town for months now that Deschutes Brewery was looking to open up a second operation somewhere in the eastern United States. Doing so would see Bend’s oldest brewery follow in the footsteps of fellow craft-brew giants Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada, and Oskar Blues, all of which started in the West but now boast enormous production plants east of the Mississippi. When you’re as big as these guys, opening another factory makes financial sense—instead of eating all the costs of transporting beer from Bend to, say, Philadelphia, brewing it closer to the eastern time zone offers massive cost benefits over time. (It could also allow Deschutes, which distributes in 28 states, to cover all 50 the way places like Stone and Lagunitas currently do.) Now, Deschutes president Michael LaLonde is talking publicly about the company’s plans—and the sites they’re looking at aren’t a big surprise. In addition to rumored earlier visits to Texas, Tennessee, and Minnesota, Deschutes reps did a tour of the mid-Atlantic in December, visiting sites like Asheville, North Carolina, and Charleston, South Carolina. Asheville, in particular, seems a perfect fit for Deschutes—really, you could call it East Bend, so similar it is in terms of size, proximity to mountains, craft-brewery density, and rate of funemployment. “We’re looking for a place where employees who live here in Bend would love to go and move to an East Coast location,” LaLonde told the Asheville Citizen-Times newspaper last week. “We think that’s really important so we can continue to develop a culture similar to the one in Bend, with the same values and mission.” A final decision still seems a while off on the eastern facility, which is planned to have a capacity of at least 200,000 barrels a year. But other breweries are taking action right now—as the Source predicted following the sale to AB-InBev last year, 10 Barrel is already making efforts to expand to other states. A soft launch has already taken place in bars around Denver, Colorado, according to their Facebook page, with more releases planned for Colorado and its huge, frenzied, Oregon-like beer scene in the future. On a much, much smaller scale, however, even The Ale Apothecary—a one-man operation that the term “artisan brewery” was all but invented for—is beginning to grow a bit. Brewer Paul Arney’s Ale Club membership has expanded to nearly 200 people, many of whom converged to his warehouse in east Bend last week to pick up allocations of beers like Carpe Diem Mañana (the brewery’s hoppiest yet), Ralph (a wild ale brewed with white fir tips), and Beermongers (aged in Elijah Craig 21-year-old bourbon barrels). Warehouse distributions like that will soon be a thing of the past, because TAA’s longplanned public tasting room, located not far from Century Drive near GoodLife, is slated to open in early to mid-summer. Arney’s beer doesn’t come cheap, but there’s nothing else like it in the United States—something that’s attracted attention from across the country. Thus, the drums of expansion continue to beat. Where will it end? In more and more empty glass pints, probably—a resolution we all can agree on.

Not to Be Broken

In spite of losing its course to fire, Chainbreaker rides again BY PHIL BUSSE, WITH REPORTING FROM MEGAN FRENCH

Not long after last Memorial Day—and a month after the popular Chainbreaker Mountain Bike Race—the Two Bulls Fire swept across several thousand acres west of Bend, pushing as close as seven miles from the city’s edge. Over one weekend alone, some 250 residents living at the outskirts of town were evacuated from their homes. Ultimately, the fire that burned for three weeks did not claim any lives and, while it temporarily chased some residents from their homes, it did not burn down any houses. But the fire did leave one local tradition homeless: The annual Chainbreaker Mountain Bike race (so classic Bend, it even has a beer associated with it). With nearly 95 percent of the course for the race burnt and largely off-limits, the beloved event was without a venue. Traditionally, the Chainbreaker race has been held in Skyliners Forest during Mother’s day weekend—partly as an opportunity to encourage families to come out to the forest and be outside with their families. In particular, the race was purchased—for a dollar—two years ago by a local nonprofit, Bend Endurance Academy (BEA), from the ski and bike shop Webcyclery, to raise funds and awareness for BEA, which currently hosts 600 children in athletic and outdoor programs. “This is one of the oldest and largest mountain biking races in Oregon,” says Ben Husaby, BEA’s Executive Director. Husaby also explained that the fire—and the loss of the course—presented some obvious logistical challenges. But mountain bikers are not feeble in spirit, and this Saturday, the 19th annual Chainbreaker MTB race will host several dozen mountain biker riders, with a slightly new twist to a nearly two decade old tradition: It will start from the same location, but will travel through a patch of land west from Shelvin Park and north of Tumalo Falls; adjacent to the

burned zone and occasionally skirting through the charred area. The expert course is a 23-mile technical loop with lots of singletrack and doubletrack to allow for plenty of passing, while the junior course will be a 13-mile loop with minimal hills to make the course fun for beginners. The race begins on mainly doubletrack, allowing racers to establish their positions. Long stretches of new singletrack have been added through burned areas. Much of the course traverses through private property (with permission from

The Oregon High Desert Grotto, Bend’s chapter of the National Speleogical Society, records 690 known caves in Deschutes County alone. Just when I’d been in enough of the caves close to Bend­—with their entrances christened with beer bottles, spray paint, and cigarette butts—to think, “Meh, seen one, seen ’em all,” I learned of these three standouts. Pictograph Cave As the name suggests, this cave contains faded, but still visible, wall art left by Native Americans untold years ago. Pictograph cave is pretty large, with two wings, one of which goes on for about 1,000 feet. Mercifully, while this cave is close in to Bend, it has been spared from morons packing paint cans. For that reason, I won’t reveal the exact location, but if you are really interested in checking it out, directions can be found with enough perusing of the interwebs.

SKYLIGHT CAVE, SEE MORE PHOTOS AT OUTDOOR PROJECT. PHOTO BY MICHAEL SAWIEL.

Skylight Cave Thanks to the tilt of the earth on its axis and this cave’s position on the planet, for the next month or so, if you can get out there before noon, this cave will bring back the feeling you had the first time you saw Goonies. The angle of the sun in early spring is such that midmorning rays shine directly through the three skylights in the cave’s roof, sending three beams of light in to punctuate the surrounding darkness. This cave is unsigned and getting here involves a series of forest roads, which can be a little tricky. For good, detailed directions, see the Sisters Chamber of Commerce website at sisterscountry.com Boca Cave A little further flung, but the payoff is worth the effort. Located off the Triangulation Peak trail, this is a westside realtor’s dream with its cathedral ceilings and a framed view of Mt. Jefferson. On a clear day you can also see also see Mt. Hood and the distant tip of Mt. Rainier. To get there, take Highway 22 to milepost 56.2, turn on McCoy Creek Road and follow it for eight-ish miles. Turn right at the four-way intersection, follow for 1 mile, then turn right on Forest Road 635. The trail head is apparent on the right. Take the trail for 1.5 miles until you come to an unsigned fork to the right. Take the fork .7 miles, which puts you at Triangulation Peak summit. Next, head NE along the ridge through obvious campsites, look for a path leading down from the last site, and say a Hail Mary if heights and edges aren’t your thing. Continue down the nearly vertical path, past the mammoth rock ridge, and as you come around the left bend you’ll see the cave entrance. Once inside, turn around and take in the view, that’s what you came for. Common Cave Sense: Always bring at least two sources of light. Caves are cold; year round they maintain a temperature of roughly 40° F, dress accordingly. Most caves are important habitat for bats and other critters and are off limits October to May.

Let’s just say I’m no stranger to the record scratch—that moment in human interaction when politeness fails, collective agreements about normalcy retire, and situations take on a new and horrible independence. It’s shocking and dangerous to be caught in such a scene, but it’s also tinged with a surreal, anarchic hilarity. Such events are commonly known as “total shit shows,” and they take time to recover from, typically leaving you two options: laugh or die. I was still reeling from an episode of this sort when I saw Wild Tales, which strings together six short stories revolving around the micro-meltdowns of society. In each case, things fall definitively and spectacularly apart, as the gray areas of characters’ motivations clash with bad luck, terrible timing, and, most of all, each other. The players have their charms and weaknesses, and they get both better and worse once the gloves are off—after the rat poison’s been administered, after the car window’s been smashed, after brides been cheated on while still in her wedding dress. Wild Tales is disaster porn for the socially scarred skeptic, and it restored my ability to laugh at the messy bullshit we all encounter in our pursuit of a nice life, which is all I’d dare to ask of two hours spent in a dark theater. Written and directed by Argentine filmmaker Damián Szifrón, Wild Tales was co-produced by Agustín and Pedro Almodóvar—a surname that should help drive movie-going attentions. Hear, hear: Wild Tales and Szifrón deserve a moneyed invitation to keep working. We need more filmmakers who know when dirt and violence, being mean, are more recognizable and life affirming than being well behaved.

THE AGE OF ADALINE It’s not uncommon for women, when questioned about their age, to claim they are perpetually 29. But for Adaline (Blake Lively) it’s a fact. For nearly a century, she’s been celebrating her 29th birthday. She’s successfully kept her strange secret largely by keeping to herself. But when she meets the handsome Ellis (Michiel Huisman), she faces a turning point. Also starring Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Theatre, Sisters Movie House

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON The time is now! The film every nerd has been waiting for since the closing credits of the first Avengers. This adventure has Cap, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye, teaming up with the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, to take on one of Tony’s inventions gone wrong, Ultron. With Ultron being a somewhat sympathetic villain, expect some deep moral ambiguity from your favorite cinematic superhero team as well as Hulk smashing things in a way that makes you giggle.

THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT Even if you try to give Divergent (and its sequels) the benefit of the doubt that they aren’t just Hunger Games rip-offs, by the time you reach the end of the first book your optimism will be shredded. While Shailene Woodley is a fine actress, the Teen Post-Apocalyptic genre hits the wall pretty hard here and flails every which way with its pat ideas about freedom, individuality, and painfully generic love. In this installment the factions start going to war and Kate Winslet cashes extra paychecks. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX EX MACHINA A couple of techie dudes develop a highly advanced (and rather fetching) lady robot. And in a variation on a timeless (and sexist) trope, Ava the android uses her cunning and good looks to dupe the smarty-pants men. Old Mill

FOCUS Will Smith and Margot Robbie as con artists getting ready to take down some marks sounds pretty delightful. Even though Smith’s movie star power has somewhat dimmed over the last few years, people forget that when he’s given a strong role, he tends to knock it out of the park. Not saying that this movie has that going for it, but Margot Robbie is damned delightful also, and if her and Will Smith had a baby, it would be too beautiful to look at. St.Francis Theater FURIOUS 7 While I wouldn’t stand up for the first four films in this franchise, Fast Five andFast and Furious Six are both smorgasbords of explosions and jaw-dropping stunts, worthy of being mentioned alongside the best action films of the last 15 years. Furious 7 pits Paul Walker (in his final screen role), Vin Diesel, Mr. The Rock and family against a pissed off Jason Statham. Expect cars flying through the air, Mr. The Rock with a minigun and Statham kicking our heroes in their faces. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Theatre

GET HARD Will Ferrell is a white collar criminal headed to San Quentin and Kevin Hart is the guy he hires to train him how to be tough for prison. Since Hart has never been to prison and Ferrell only hires him because he’s black, I’m assuming mildly racist hijinks will ensue. With some of the writers behind the brilliant Key and Peele scripting, this could be a return to form for Ferrell and the vehicle Hart needs to show how funny he can be when not improvising. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX HOME Home is the new film from DreamWorks Animation, home to How to Train Your Dragon, Kung-Fu Panda and Shrek. This one tells the story of an alien (voiced by Steve Martin) whose race is hiding from their mortal enemy on Earth, which they decide to invade. Obviously, wacky hijinks ensure because Jim Parsons is also part of the voice cast and that man has two modes: wacky and faux-nerdy. If they exterminate the human race by accident, then this should be a children’s classic. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Pine Theater

HOT PURSUIT Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Veraga star in this female-centric homage to films like Midnight Run and Running Scared. Since this is from the director of 27 Dresses and Step Up, it is hard to know whether this will be an action filled, crowd pleasing comedy, or a vapid attempt to cash in on a genre that has not seen a successful odd couple pairing in years. Old Mill Stadium 16 &

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE The new film from the madcap bastard behind Layer Cake, Stardust, and X-Men: First Class, Matthew Vaughn. Kingsman has Colin Firth using a bulletproof umbrella and beating a bunch of ass while never breaking a sweat. It also has Samuel L. Jackson dressing like Jay-Z, talking with a lisp and hellbent on world domination. I mean, sure, this could be one of the worst movies ever made, but it won’t be. It will be gloriously, batshit insane. St.Francis Theater

THE LONGEST RIDE It’s a new year so that means it’s time for a new Nicholas Sparks adaptation. This one sounds like a turgid romance novel as a bull rider falls in love with an art student with big dreams of New York City.

Will the boy look good in his Wranglers while she unburdens her soul with desires of becoming the new Rothko? Who the hell cares? Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX MONKEY KINGDOM Apparently, Disney has an offshoot called Disneynature that releases, you guessed it, nature films.

OF HORSES AND MEN A strange and beautiful meditation on humanity and its relationship to horses. Simultaneously tragic, hilarious, and profoundly bizarre, the film is hypnotic in its attempts to demonstrate the closeness man has with animals. Filled with some of the most astounding horse related imagery ever put to film. Tin Pan Theater PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 The sequel to the art-house triumph, Paul Blart: Mall Cop The First. This time Mr. Blart uses his Oxford educated wits to just hang out for 90 minutes and have a conversation about post-modernism and how it relates to millennial values and more while sipping 70-year old scotch and listening to Clint Mansell compositions. Wait, nope, this is more lowest-common-denominator garbage for people to enjoy while trying to take their mind off their type-two diabetes. I wonder how many times his balls get hit. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX TRUE STORY Based on a true story involving an Oregon man who kills his wife and kids and the former New York Times’ reporter whose identity he stole, True Story explores the line between truth and lies, and the risks inherent in getting to close to a powerful manipulator. Starring Jonah Hill as reporter Michael Finkel and James Franco as convicted murderer Christian Longo. Moral of the story: Never trust a death row killer who has stolen your identity. Sisters Movie House UNFRIENDED If real-life stories of harassment, assault, and suicide aren’t enough to convince you that online bullying is bad news, this of-themoment horror flick should drive that point home (and maybe convince you to quit social media altogether). The film centers around the ghost of Laura, a teenager who cyber stalks former friends after bullying drives her to suicide. Old Mill

THE WATER DIVINER Set during World War I, the film follows an Australian farmer named Connor (Russell Crowe), who discovers that his three sons died in the Battle of Gallipoli.

BY WM.™ STEVEN HUMPHREY

As you know, I’m always in search of my next “gravy train.” You know, a person or scheme that will make me rich beyond my wildest dreams—although I would never say no to an actual train filled with gravy. Recent “gravy trains” include my plan to marry a rich old person…but Warren Buffett wasn’t interested. Another involved inventing an app, which would notify ice cream trucks to drive by my house…kind of like an Uber for adult-onset diabetics. But that idea blew up after learning my customer-base is primarily morbidly obese 10-yearolds whose parents refuse to further fatten up their kids. HEY DUMB PARENTS! IT’S NOT MY FAULT ICE CREAM IS DELICIOUS!! Well, I recently stumbled onto a new potential “gravy train,” called “your nostalgic need for crappy reboots of ‘Full House.’” As you may have heard, Netflix is producing a reboot of the ‘80s sitcom classic “Full House” to be called “Fuller House.” Spoiler alert: THAT IS A TERRIBLE NAME. Already signed up to star are Candace Cameron Bure (big sis D.J. Tanner), Jodie Sweetin (middle sis Stephanie Tanner), and Andrea Barber (neighbor Kimmy Gibbler) who shack up to help raise D.J.’s twin boys. Uncle Jessie (hunky mullet-owner John Stamos) will guest star, and plans to bring on Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Lori Laughlin, and Mary-Kate, and Ashley Olsen (SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!) are in the works. Everybody in the world knows this show is going to suck hippo anus—and yet? There is money to be made off your nostalgia addiction, my friend! And nobody knows this better than the Lifetime Network, who—after achieving wild success with their horrific “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story”—are hitching their wagon up to this

Call Mike Martin NMLS #296965

nostalgia-driven project, and are currently casting the made-for-TV movie, “Unauthorized Full House Story.” A woefully unoriginal idea? YES, IT IS! Do they care? NO, THEY DO NOT! And do I want in on this gravy train action? YES, I MOST CERTAINLY DO. Sure, I could spend the rest of my days dreaming up brilliant, original ideas—but those don’t put gravy in the train, my friend! The dumb people of the world know that recycling crappy ideas is the only way to make maximum buckage (AKA dollars, AKA mucho dinero, AKA moolah-lah). And with that, here is MY $$$$-earning idea to cash in on the Full House craze. It’s called, “The Most Fullest House Experience!” and here’s how it works: You pay me to move you into a San Francisco house which you share with two other guys and three small girls (actually four small girls, because two are twins…who are never in the same room at the same time, but share a name). So basically you become either a stick-in-themud dad, a really bad comedian, or a dude with a mullet, and spend your days in the worst communal living situation in the universe. But on the upside? There’s always a laugh track! You’ll stay there for 18 years until the girls graduate, while paying for all living expenses, as well as their college. And I’ll only charge you $100,000 per year—which may sound a tad expensive…but what price “nostalgia,” am I right?

Forgive everyone who has offended you, and fantasize about the fun adventures you’ll go on, the inspiring plans you’ll carry out, and the invigorating lessons you hope to learn.

my late afternoon hikes is teeming with the six-petaled purple wildflower known as the elegant cluster-lily. Every one of them—and there are hundreds—lean hard in the direction of the sun in the west. Should I deride them as conformists that follow the law of the pack? Should I ridicule them for their blind devotion? Or should I more sensibly regard them as having a healthy instinct to gravitate toward the life-giving light? I’ll go with the latter theory. In that spirit, Leo, I urge you to ignore the opinions of others as you turn strongly toward the sources that provide you with essential nourishment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Am I reading the astrological omens correctly? I hope so. From what I can tell, you have been flying under the radar and over the rainbow. You have been exploiting the loopholes in the big bad system and enjoying some rather daring experiments with liberation. At this point in the adventure, you may be worried that your lucky streak can’t continue much longer. I’m here to tell you that it can. It will. It must. I predict that your detail-loving intelligence will paradoxically guide you to expand your possibilities even further. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): According to the three science fiction films collectively known as The Matrix, we humans suffer from a fundamental delusion. What we think is real life is actually a sophisticated computer simulation. Intelligent machines have created this dream world to keep us in suspended animation while they harvest our energy to fuel their civilization. Now as far as I can tell, this scenario isn’t literally true. But it is an apt metaphor for how many of us seem to be half-asleep or under a spell, lost in our addiction to the simulated world created by technology. I bring this to your attention, Libra, because now is a favorable time to diminish the hold that the metaphorical Matrix has on you. What can you do to at least partially escape your bondage? (Hint: A little more contact with nature could do the trick.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In the coming weeks, you may be as alluring and intriguing and tempting as you have been in a long time. I suggest you capitalize on this advantage. Proceed as if you do indeed have the power to at-

tract more of the emotional riches you desire. Assume that are primed to learn new secrets about the arts of intimacy, and that these secrets will make you even smarter and more soulful than you already are. Cultivate your ability to be the kind of trusted ally and imaginative lover who creates successful relationships.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Physicist Frank Wilczek won a Nobel Prize for his research into quarks, the tiny particles that compose protons and neutrons. The guy is breathtakingly smart. Here’s one of his operating principles: “If you don’t make mistakes, you’re not working on hard enough problems. And that’s a big mistake.” Let’s enshrine his advice as your meditation, Sagittarius. I think you’re strong enough and brave enough to go hunting for some new super-rich dilemmas. Yes, they may lead you to commit some booboos. But they will also stretch your intelligence beyond its previous limits, giving you a more vigorous understanding of the way the world works. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 1934, Capricorn baseball player Dizzy Dean was named the Most Valuable Player after winning 30 games. It was a feat that no National League pitcher has repeated ever since. After Dean retired, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Never shy about acknowledging his own prowess, he declared that “if you can do it, it ain’t bragging.” It is in this spirit that I invite you to freely expound on your talents and accomplishments in the coming week. You won’t be boasting. You will simply be providing information. And that will ultimately result in you being offered an interesting new opportunity or two. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There

has rarely been a better time than now to refine the art of being your own mommy or daddy. You’re finally ready to take over from the parental voices in your head and assume full responsibility for raising yourself the rest of the way. What do you want to be when you grow up? You may feel a giddy sense of freedom as it becomes clear that the only authority who has the right to answer that question is you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The universe

has always played tricks on you. Some have been so perplexing that you’ve barely understood the joke. Others have been amusing but not particularly educational. Now I sense a new trend in the works, however. I suspect that the universe’s pranks are becoming more comprehensible. They may have already begun to contain hints of kindness. What’s the meaning of this lovely turn of events? Maybe you have finally discharged a very old karmic debt. It’s also conceivable that your sense of humor has matured so much that you’re able to laugh at some of the crazier plot twists. Here’s another possibility: You are cashing in on the wisdom you were compelled to develop over the years as you dealt with the universe’s tricks.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Benedictine

monks observe the Latin motto Laborare est Orare. The 19th-century abbot Maurus Wolter interpreted these words to mean “work is worship” or “work is prayer.” He was trying to impress upon his fellow monks that the work they did was not a grudging distraction from their service to God, but rather at the heart of their devotion. To do their tasks with love was a way to express gratitude for having been blessed with the gift of life. I propose that you experiment with this approach in the coming weeks, even if your version is more secular. What would it be like to feel contentment with and appreciation for the duties you have been allotted?

I have a crush on this really hot musician guy. I know he’s trouble with a capital “T.” He’s super-charming, handsome, and promiscuous. (He’s “slaying” on Tinder—juggling women and getting lots of sex.) My plan is to become friends with him first—as a prelude to becoming his girlfriend. I feel like that might give me some insurance against being one of the ones he just uses and tosses. —Strategic

What a sweet person you are, trying to show this guy that there’s more to life than Tinder-swiping his way to empty sex with a bunch of near strangers—or, as he probably refers to it, sexual Disneyland. Women, especially, have a tendency to believe in the transformative power of their fabulousness. And sure, people do change—when their life is no longer making them happy (or, in his case, thrilled, ecstatic, and out of his manhussy mind with joy). And though a man who feels emotionally attached to a woman is more likely to stick around after sex, he also has to be up for a relationship to begin with. In other words, by becoming this guy’s friend first, yes, you could become a very special person in his life—the woman he knows he can always drop in on when he can’t find his phone charger.

NEWS QUIRKS CURSES, FOILED AGAIN

A funeral procession thwarted a man’s attempt to rob a 79-year-old woman in San Antonio, Texas. “We were going really, really slow, so as we passed this bus stop, there was this elderly lady, (and) a gentleman was knocking her around and was pulling on her purse,” witness Robert Garcia said. “Before I turned around, about eight of the mourners were all around him, getting him down, and then we flagged the police officer that was guiding the procession.” Joe Carpenter, 41, was charged with aggravated robbery. (San Antonio’s KSAT-TV) Tony Jerome Torbert Jr., 20, attracted the attention of authorities in Brevard County, Fla., after he posted an ad on Craigslist offering “Legit Counterfeit $$.” Sheriff’s deputies executed a search warrant and seized a printer, a computer, and counterfeit currency.

PAIN OF PROGRESS

A 29-year-old California man was diagnosed with a torn tendon in his thumb caused by playing “Candy Crush Saga” on his smartphone “all day for 6 to 8 weeks” with his left hand, according to a study reported in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. One of the authors, San Diego orthopedic surgeon Dr. Dori Cage, cautioned that the rise in the number of people with smartphones who spend lots of time texting or tapping on their cellphones or tablets has the potential to lead to a “texting thumb,” a repetitive stress injury that affects the thumb and wrist. She said that people experiencing pain from texting might instead use voice control, such as Siri on an iPhone, or “actually pick up the phone and call somebody” to communicate. (U-T San Diego)

HIGH ON THE DIAL

SAT & SUN JULY 18-19

2015

Radio station KREL-AM in Colorado Springs, Colo., abandoned its unprofitable sports-talk format to become the nation’s first radio station dedicated to marijuana programming. Its new call letters are KHIG. KHIG-AM airs three local shows: “Wake and Bake” from 7 to 9 am, “High Noon” from noon to 1 pm and “High Drive” from 5 to 7 pm It also broadcasts three hour-long newscasts from Los Angeles-based National Marijuana News Service and programming from Chicago-based RadioMD. Six local medical marijuana dispensaries signed up as advertisers. “I just saw a business opportunity,” general manager Mike Knar said, noting that public response has been “amazing.” (Colorado Springs’s The Gazette)

SECOND-AMENDMENT FOLLIES

Larry McElroy, 54, fired his 9 mm pistol at an armadillo outside his home but wound up shooting his mother-in-law. Sheriff’s investigators in Lee County, Ga., determined the bullet ricocheted off the animal, hit a fence, went through the back door of his mother-in-law’s mobile home, through a recliner she was sitting in and into her back. The 74-year-old victim wasn’t seriously hurt. Authorities do recommend shooting armadillos as an effective way of getting rid of them but suggest using a shotgun, which, investigator Bill Smith said, has “a spread pattern with a lot less range.” (Albany’s WALB-TV)

for which some people are willing to pay. And others are selling. Ed Mance, who operates PhoneNumberGuy.com, buys numbers in bulk from companies that no longer need them. He sells them for between $299 and $799, although his biggest sale was a “nine-of-a-kind” number for $95,000. Mance notes that the area code most in demand is Los Angeles’s 310, whose numbers are the hardest to secure. Many of Mance’s customers are less interested in the area code than the numbers around them, including ones that spell out words. “HURT and PAIN are the two most in-demand numbers,” Mance said, because they’re coveted by personal-injury lawyers. (The Washington Post)

SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME

Just months after the Sandy Hook massacre, the school district in Halfway, Ore., decided to stage a surprise “active shooter drill” at its elementary school on a day when only teachers were there. Linda McLean, 56, said a man dressed in a black hoodie and goggles burst into her classroom, aimed a pistol at her face, and fired. “You’re dead,” he said and left. Panic ensued as the gunman went from room to room, firing what turned out to be blanks. One teacher wet her pants. Teachers later learned the gunman was the district’s safety officer and that officials had alerted law enforcement so they wouldn’t respond to emergency calls from distressed teachers. Insisting that the incident caused her to suffer post traumatic stress disorder, McLean in April filed suit against Pine Eagle School District, the safety officer et al. (Portland’s The Oregonian)

Jesse Young proposed using decommissioned Navy aircraft carriers to form a 3,700-foot-long bridge linking Bremerton and Port Orchard. “I know that people from around the world would come to drive across the deck of an aircraft carrier bridge, number one,” Young explained. “Number two, it’s the right thing to do from my standpoint because this is giving testimony and a legacy memorial to our greatest generation.” (Britain’s Daily Mail)

STORAGE COMPARTMENT

After Jesse Roepcke, 27, was arrested for aiming a laser pointer at motorists in Ormond Beach, Fla., officers conducting a strip search at the Volusia County jail said a bag of leafy green substance fell out of his rectum. They noted the contents smelled like marijuana. (United Press International)

CHECKS AND BALANCES

As Americans write fewer checks (down 50 percent since 2000, according to the Federal Reserve), Google reported that searches for “how to write a check” are five times more prevalent than 10 years ago. Pennsylvania leads the nation in such searches, followed by Delaware, New York, and Hawaii. Even with the decline of checks in favor of electronic and card payments, which have tripled since 2000, the Federal Reserve said Americans are writing 18.3 billion checks per year.

CANNABIS CORNER

A Lesson in Supply & Demand BY LEAH CHATTERJEE

New regulations have been proposed by Oregon legislators to limit existing pot growers in most areas to 96 plants and 24 plants in residential areas, and medical marijuana patients and growers are none too happy. Lawmakers argue that the limitations will help curb the alleged cannabis black market. According to the Oregonian, Sen. Ginny Burdick said, “It’s no secret that medical marijuana is appearing all over the U.S. in the illegal market.” Patients, growers, and cannabis lobbyists fear, however, that these new restrictions will hugely crimp the supply chain for currently legal medical marijuana, and lead to higher prices. While part of the provision aims to protect medical marijuana patients by making it harder for local governments to prohibit medical marijuana dispensaries, the concerns of the negative effects seem to weigh heavier on patients and growers. Anthony Taylor of medical marijuana patient advocacy group Compassionate Oregon told the Oregonian, “It’s really hard to get rid of a black market, and it’s a tricky landscape because it puts so many patients at risk.” Members of the cannabis lobby and medical marijuana advocates are pushing back, urging citizens to write to legislators and call on them to make changes to the bill that would be less restrictive, and ultimately protect medical marijuana patients.
