That’s why a team of AmeriCorps members is in town on a mission to swap out traditional incandescent bulbs with LED ones. In NEWS, we talk to members of “Team Blue” about why they’re in Bend, and what they hope to accomplish.

5 VOLUME 19 ISSUE 49 / December 3, 2015 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY

While the letter addressed City of Bend management-of-growth issues and hazarded a few solutions, I’ve as yet to hear a narrative mention those most likely to bear the burden of the considered “Gas Tax.” As we sift through ideas intending to help absorb our growing pains—and their costs—let’s look at who benefits and who pays. One of the letter writer’s concerns was controlling the use of the gas tax, and one suggestion was to keep it from being dumped into the general fund. The presumption is that these funds could be confined to the road department’s maintenance and repair budget. Well, okay, I like that. It seems simple enough: buy gas and fix the roads you drive on. However, the roads that will be getting fixed are certainly roads in Bend, not county roads or state highways, as they have their own public funding sources. There are many people who work in Bend who have chosen (or have been forced) to move outside the city to the outlying regions of Redmond, La Pine, Sunriver environs and Sisters, for affordability reasons. Is it fair to tax these county members if they need to fill up their tanks in Bend?

I own a business and pay property taxes in Bend, but as my residence is outside the city, I don’t have the opportunity to vote on city issues that impact me and the majority of my employees. If this were just as simple as buying gas in your hamlet outside of town, perhaps some of the gas station businesses would have a dog in the fight, but this is a tax we’re talking about, not regional pricing issues, and fairness needs to be in the conversation. —David B. Ogden

NO DRINKING FOUNTAINS I see Bend City is removing the drinking fountains from downtown. Not as if a desert city that wants to promote people walking around shopping needs to provide for basic thirst. Does anyone give up shopping because of getting dehydrated, thirsty, perhaps a headache? Give away

beer and wine on First Friday, but don’t give away our water! It’s time for some merchants to install fountains or water bottle filling stations and see what kind of traffic it generates, especially in winter when outside dispensers would not work. —Mathieu Federspiel Thank you to the Source staff for giving so much print to the issue of climate change. As a local filmmaker and activist, I am offering a weekly class called Facing Climate Change, to keep the momentum going behind Sunday’s climate march. It’s also a place for people to come who don’t have support for the emotional challenges of witnessing such massive destruction - not the faraway Tar Sands or the polar ice caps but right here in our own home. Crimes like the relentless paving over of sagebrush and forest; or the unquestioned, state-sanctioned murder of mountain lions and soon, wolves. The soul can’t be happy while the biosphere is destroyed. More than a validation of these difficult emotions, the group’s intention is to move through grief and experience the resilience, community, and empowerment of being part of a life-affirming society. Social psychologists have only recently explained why the climate message has for decades caused such debilitating numbness and paralysis. This should come as a huge relief to many. I know I had to move through it on my own... Now we have support! Open to everyone, the class is held every Monday night from 7:15 to 8:45 at Bend Community Healing. —Vanessa Schultz

IN REPLY TO “DON’T GIVE IN” (11/26) As you perch in your office mulling over snappy responses taking deference to the outcome of the voting on the refugee issue, I’d hasten to remind you that Central Oregon is distant from the trodden paths which would be the yellow brick road to obvious targets of “organized” terrorism, perhaps LA, SF, Seattle etc. Obviously this makes it easy to condemn the outcome of the 289-137 vote. A lone wolf act of terrorism in Central Oregon? Maybe, but not likely. I feel your pain and need to whine about the outcome, however, I’d suggest you read up on the result of the Greeks use of the Trojan Horse (albeit a myth) and contemplate the outcome. Eighteen months to two years of vetting means nothing considering the competency of our government. In that period of time refugees will be absorbed into countries with cultures that are similar thereby minimizing the impact of their social integration. We don’t need a conduit for absorbing more nut cases. We Oregonians recently validated the fact that we already have plenty.

3rd Street out to 27th. Essentially, we got a much sturdier, mostly two-lane road, with marginal landscaping and a new roundabout for our 18 million bucks. So here’s my offer, I promise I won’t even use your fancy street, and you just send my refund to my PO box. Maybe you could rename it, BoonDoggle Boulevard. —Dave Stalker

LETTER OF THE WEEK Dave—We like the sound of BoonDoggle Boulevard. You’re not alone in thinking that the long wait wasn’t worth the meager reward, when it comes to Reed Market Road. Why not drown your disappointment in a cup a joe at Palate on us? E.J. Pettinger’s

REED MARKET REFUND PLEASE Is this the Public Works Refund Desk? As a taxpayer in Bend for 38 years, I’ve helped fund all kinds of worthy improvements, through my property taxes. For many years, people complained that Reed Market Road was not keeping up with the volume of traffic on it. The City kept saying, “We’ll make it four lanes, that’ll fix it.” So here we are $18.3 million later and what do we have? The concrete is thick enough to land a 747 on. But, there are not 4 lanes all the way from

“Anothergreat greatthing thing about about this “Another thishot hottub tub- it makesone onehell hellof of aa big big batch it makes batchofofsoup.” soup.”

So, for me, it smarts to see the gas tax appear as some panacea for our deteriorating roads: the people that live outside the city and drive the longer distances to work, and arguably use more gas, bear a larger “gas tax” burden to pay for fixing the streets. Yet, I imagine the larger part of their driving is confined to the roads leading in and out of town, and less on the streets.

I lived in Aspen 40 years ago, and many of the same developing issues arose there. The zoning and housing issues of that place and period spawned the term “Aspen Syndrome”—referring to the slamming the door after I get in—and we saw many of the working class and service people forced to move outward to Basalt, Carbondale and Glenwood Springs. This term has been used ever since, and negatively, to describe the economic conditions that move the little people out. Property values rise and taxes follow suit, but to quote George H.W. Bush, the “kinder, gentler world” never materializes.

s Bend’s City Council prepares to push for a fuel tax on the ballot to maintain the city’s crumbling roads, smartly arguing that those who use the roads ought to share the burden for their upkeep, we’d like to see a similar principle applied to sidewalks. No, we’re not talking about residents and business owners repairing the damaged patches in front of their properties—though that’s technically their responsibility, too— we’re looking at something much simpler, and vastly less expensive: Shoveling snow. No one really likes to do it— aside from the neighborhood kid who figures he can get some pocket money out of the deal. But aside from the elderly and infirm, just about everyone can do it. Unfortunately, few do. For all our collective belly-aching about personal responsibility and objections to excessive government intervention, it will likely take the City’s recent threat to actually—if selectively— enforce the code requiring snow removal to spur some action.

While it’s embarrassing that the City should have to wag its proverbial finger in order to prompt residents and business owners to take action, it’s far better than the alternative—an injury or fatality caused by an elderly person attempting to navigate unshoveled sidewalks en route to a bus stop, or a collision with a child forced to walk on the icy roads for lack of a safe sidewalk on the way to school. A week out from the recent snowstorm, the vast majority of the city’s sidewalks are still covered in snow. Everywhere from driveway-wide stretches of sidewalk in front of

Dig Me Out single-family homes to long swaths along Highway 20 in front of commercial businesses are covered with an obstacle course pushing pedestrians into the path of cars doing their best not to end up on the sidewalk. For those who may have missed the memo, County code requires businesses to clear snow from their adjacent sidewalks within six hours of a storm, while residents get a full day. The penalty, though rarely enforced, is $100 per day. So if the City does issue citations, rather than just warnings, code violators could be looking at a $700-plus bill. Now, we could easily complain about the conditions of the city’s roads one week out, and plenty are. But that shouldn’t shift focus from the simple, concrete act of common courtesy individuals can take to make everyone that much safer. Yes, it takes some forethought and planning for a large business or sizable corner residence to clear the foot or more of snow many parts of the city saw fall just before Thanksgiving. But we ought to be used to snow by now. We should all own snow shovels, which can be affordably purchased at a number of local retailers. And if we cannot physically shovel our own snow, chances are there’s a neighborhood kid, or an adult professional, who’d be willing to do the deed for a reasonable fee. On that note, for those who have already done the right thing and shoveled their sidewalk, we’ll issue this challenge. Shovel someone else’s walk. Whether it’s your elderly neighbor or the single mom on the block whose little ones are still shorter than the shovel, it’s a small act of kindness that benefits us all. ‘Tis the season, after all.

AmeriCorps teams light up Bend

By Corinne Boyer

B

end has a few extra helpers this holiday season. The Bend Environmental Center welcomed an 11-member AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps team— known as Blue Six—a few weeks ago, and the group is working to install energy efficient light bulbs in Bend homes, as part of the Bend Energy Challenge. Another AmeriCorps team—Blue One—is assisting the Salvation Army by helping operate its food bank, which is the largest in Central Oregon, as well as helping with its toy drive. In addition, Blue One is also running after school programs and mobile kitchens. Both teams have been here for four weeks and their service terms wrap up on Dec. 18. Blue Six team members Emily Thompson and Charmaine Thomas are serving as media representatives for The Environmental Center and say Bend has made a favorable impression during their short time here. They both agree that it’s been great serving in a place like Bend where the people have been so hospitable. “We go around to people who have signed up for the program and install up to 16 free LED light bulbs, and we’re learning a lot about Bend from that and just the people of Bend are so sweet and so nice,” says Thompson. So far the team has replaced 1,611 light bulbs in 104 homes, according to Neil Baunsgard with The Environmental Center. The team is also installing energy efficient showerheads and faucet aerators, and he estimates that the installations will save $19,152 in energy costs this year alone. The team faced a hurdle last week after Bend received several inches of snow. Before the storm, Blue Six had two car teams and two bike teams, says Thompson.

“On Wednesday, we were supposed to have 22 installs, but we got snowed in and so we didn’t go out and do any,” she says. Bend Energy Challenge Project Director Lindsey Hardy says without the team, the Environmental Center wouldn’t have the staff power to fulfill the LED requests. They’ve had about 1,200 people sign up this year, and team Blue Six is aiming to complete 24 installs per day. “They picked everything up quickly, they’ve been really enthusiastic, they come in every day with smiles,” Hardy says. “We got really fortunate not only that we have these extra helping hands, but that we also have such a great and energetic team who came here.” Hardy says the Bend Energy Challenge began in January and will compete for one more year in hopes of bringing home a $5 million prize against 49 other communities. Thompson says any home in Bend can sign up for the service as long as they receive electric through Pacific Power, are serviced by Cascade Natural Gas Company, and have incandescent light bulbs. “We’re replacing 100 watt bulbs with 9 to 11 watt bulbs,” she says. Charmaine Thomas says she decided to join AmeriCorps NCCC because she enjoys doing random acts of kindness. “I wanted to do something bigger than me,” she says. She’s given people free car rides and instead of celebrating her 21st birthday, the Detroit native spent a day at a homeless shelter. “[I just] wanted to celebrate them, you know.” Emily Thompson agrees that helping people comes naturally. “I have always enjoyed serving others. I grad-

uated with a hospitality degree so that’s kind of just ingrained into who I am, but to be able to just do it for nothing and to be able to help someone—and they might not even know that it's us doing it—is something that I like to do,” she says. “And you get to travel and you get to see communities that you wouldn’t be able to see, and it definitely opens your eyes to a lot of new experiences.” Team Blue Six members come from different backgrounds—some have just graduated from high school, others have just graduated college, and one team member has been accepted to medical school. Team members have also immersed themselves in the community by fulfilling an additional NCCC volunteer requirement outside of their assigned jobs. “We have volunteered at Bend's Community Center, the Veterans Day Parade, Tumalo State Park, and the Bend Thanksgiving Classic,” says Thompson. The team will serve in three more locations and will log a total of 1,700 hours over the course of its 10-month assignment. Team members will stick together through the duration of their service time. “We’re a family—I think in my eyes. If you fight with your sister or brother you get over it and you move on and that’s how we are,” says Thompson. Thomas has attended some college and enjoys being part of the team. “I haven’t been on many teams in my life, so Blue Six is one of the first,” she says. “Being on this team has been an eye opener helping me to understand everyone is different, and comes from different backgrounds and belief systems, and that’s OK.”

The City of Redmond will host a public presentation to show the draft plan of Mid-Town. The Mid-Town area is underused and the City aims to redevelop the area into a thriving neighborhood. Two workshops held earlier this year took public comments into consideration when drafting the plan. Consultants and City staff will attend the meeting and public comments are welcome at that time. The meeting will be held Dec. 9 from 6 to 8 pm at Redmond City Hall, Conference Room A at 716 SW Evergreen Ave., Redmond.

The Deschutes County Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee is reminding business and homeowners to keep sidewalks shoveled and free of ice. Business owners should have sidewalks cleared within six hours of precipitation and residential neighborhoods have 24 hours. This code applies to Sisters, La Pine, Redmond, and Bend and helps keep sidewalks safe for pedestrians.

Two public hearings will discuss the proposed land use rules for businesses that sell, grow, and process marijuana in unincorporated areas of Deschutes County. The Deschutes County Board of County Commissioners is urging residents to comment on the proposed regulations. The hearings will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 1:30 pm and 6 pm at 1300 NW Wall St. in the Deschutes Services Building.

After being asked by the Downtown Bend Business Association to maintain broken drinking fountains, the City of Bend “discovered that the fountains were not an asset that the City wanted to repair or maintain,” according to a statement. On Nov. 30, the City began removing the drinking fountains from downtown. The fountains’ water line connections do not meet current regulations and upgrading the fountains is not a planned expense. According to Community Relations Manager Anne Aurand, the City only operates four drinking fountains downtown and once they are removed, there will no longer be any city-maintained fountains downtown. The City plans to work with the Downtown Business Association to find out if fountains are considered an amenity by shoppers, employees, and restaurant goers. If the City finds that the public wants drinking fountains, they will look into ways of reinstalling new fountains.

Last Gas Effort Proposed fuel tax would help City repair roads

n the late 2000s, the City of Bend failed to find additional funding to fix its crumbling streets, City Councilor Sally Russell explains. And Bendites are feeling the effects of that failure today. “So here we are 2015, almost 2016, and we’re looking at somewhere around 60 to 80 million dollars. And that’s increasing around two million dollars per year,” she says. “Our community has to pay two million dollars in the future to bring our roads up to a maintainable standard.” Russell says the City has a Pavement Condition Index—a national road standard—for every street in Bend. Gravel streets are also part of the City’s infrastructure. “So we have a lot of different streets to deal with,” she says. “There is a huge range and variety of streets and part of it has to do with how they are built, part of it has to do with how they were maintained. And some of them were never truly constructed.” In August, Council unanimously adopted resolution 3002, which temporarily formed the Street Maintenance Funding Committee in order to find additional funding. The committee was composed of business owners, environmental nonprofits, Bend 2030 Executive Director Erin Foote Marlowe, City Councilor Doug Knight, and Sally Russell as Mayor Pro Tem. The committee’s summary report found that “committee polling show[ed] a preference for the first option: Baseline 1— Improve [the] entire street system, with a fuel tax. Three-fourths of Committee members choose or prefer this option over the others,” according to the report.

On Monday, Nov. 30 a special City Council meeting was called to hold a public hearing on the proposed fuel tax. Five people and in

spoke four were support of a fuel tax.

Erin Foote Marlowe a letter Bend 2030 read mitted to Council in subfavor of a fuel tax. She says one of the organization’s top priorities in 2015 was to address the transportation system—which includes crumbling roads, unsafe pedestrian crossings, and bike paths. “So over the year we’ve engaged thousands of people in asking them how do we fix these problems, and we’ve just consistently heard that a gas tax is top priority and that people would support it,” she says. Justin Livingston, a member of the committee, addressed Council as a community member. He said by holding a special election in March it would cost the City $60,000 to $70,000 to host a special election, but that there would be no cost to wait until May to add the ballot measure. The majority of councilors supported putting the fuel tax on the March ballot; however, councilors Victor Chudowsky and Casey Roats did not. Chudowsky said charging taxpayers $60,000 to $70,000 is a “waste of money.” He continued: “Using taxpayer money in order to tax people more—it’s almost like double dipping.”

Roats reiterated the cost of the March election and said if the measure failed then “we’ve wasted 60 to 70 thousand dollars.” But if the Council decides to wait until May or even until the November 2016 election, it will continue to add to the backlog of money needed to repair the roads. “If you look at the pavement condition indexes, if you allow any single street to get past a certain point, the cost to bring it back up to maintainable standards increases exponentially,” Russell says. According to the City’s Bend Streets Funding website, the cost of repairing one lane mile spans from $10,000 for a crack seal to $90,000 if the lane needs an overlay or repaving. And the cost of completely reconstructing the same area of a street can range from $422,000 to $633,000. Another reason councilors supported the March ballot measure was to make sure that during the peak tourism months, visitors— around 66 percent who visit Bend rent cars— are absorbed into the proposed tax. Overall, the City needs to find $2.7 million annually to keep up with road repairs. While it receives 47 percent—about $4.6 million in the 2015-2016 fiscal year—of its current funding from the state gas tax, the money still isn’t an adequate amount to repair streets. “There’s a huge citizen component that looks at the budget and the proposed budget before

it ever comes to Council, so this is the third year I’ve been through this process— which is very in-depth—and the message every year has been we have been losing our investments in our streets,” says Russell. “And this time when it came up it was like, OK, this is not being fiscally responsible, and we need to look at a better way of funding.” While the Council didn’t decide on a 5 or 10 cent fuel tax, they did discuss a reauthorization clause to be added to the ballot. While the official vote will be held at Wednesday’s regular City Council meeting, the majority of Council supported a 10-year reauthorization. Councilor Russell believes that 10 years would be enough to fix the problem and would show that Council is being fiscally responsible. The ballot needs to be filed by Jan. 7, 2016, so Council will have its final vote on Dec. 2. “It’s always tough to be put in a position where you are asking people for increased revenues,” says Russell. “I’ve been very conscious of this uncomfortable position as a councilor that I have to address, but I’m also really committed to not sitting on my hands and having our community pay for our streets at an accelerated pace.”

Santa Maria Novella Perfume This classic scent is still in style. Santa Maria’s rose, pomegranate, and vanilla fragrances may have begun with Dominican Monks in 1200, but the hints of lipids and herbs remain a hip way to smell good. The company uses natural, raw ingredients and doesn’t test its products on animals. These perfumes come in fresh scents like verbena and flowery colognes like gardenia. Not only has this popular perfume been around for centuries making its way through royal courts, it also made its way to Russia, China, and what were once remote parts of the world. A gift can’t get any more classic than this.

Klean Kanteen with Local Art Design

In a time where information travels almost as quickly as thought, it is good to sometimes remind ourselves to take a beat and relax. There is something beautiful about receiving a letter or postcard in the mail that an email can never convey and that sense of timeless, tactile enjoyment will never be replaced by email...no matter how convenient it may be. Traveling the world is as exciting as you make it, so make it twice as exciting for those back home by snail mailing them a handmade card from Tokyo or a scented postcard from San Francisco.

Klean Kanteens keep your cold drinks downright icy for 24 hours while keeping beverages hot for up to six. Being completely eco-friendly and BPA-free means you can enjoy your local coffee on the train ride to wherever the wind may blow you while also keeping that bit of home nice and fresh for a few more hours. Filled with a Lone Pine Coffee Roaster’s homemade chai, bourbon caramel latte or noisette, the Klean Kanteen can be a deliciously decadent treat keeper and environmentally conscious Earth saver simultaneously. When something can taste good and feel good at the same time, life becomes just a little bit better.

Roark Outfitted by Hex Mule Travel Backpack For the adventurous jetsetter who wants to explore the world with a bag capable of getting them into and out of anywhere they see fit. While the bag is urbane and stylish enough to fit a 15-inch laptop, it is also functional enough to fit gear for a three-day hike. Whatever kind of traveler you’re purchasing a gift for, this bag will add a no-nonsense vibe to anyone’s stylish traveling itinerary. It makes the wearer look as cool as they sometimes feel. Just fill it with books and find a beach. You know we’re right.

Backpacking Oregon by Douglas Lorain This picture-filled extravaganza isn’t focused on the traveling aspect of backpacking, but more of the trail walking side of things. Lorain has lived in the Pacific Northwest since the late ’60s and has been hiking trails since the beginning, logging more than 30,000 trail miles just in our neck of the woods. This book is considered a resource even by experienced hikers, and Lorain’s other books detailing hikes through Washington and Idaho only solidify him as one of the Pacific Northwest’s important trail guides. Sometimes it makes more sense to commune with nature than walk through a city, and this book will show you the way.

The real question here isn’t about whether the studious writer in your life needs one of these, but whether they would prefer it in red, yellow, black, or any of the colors in between. The thick and durable leather isn’t the only exciting thing here. The real find is that the paper inside is refillable for the writer who just doesn’t know when to say, “Journaling isn’t just a hobby, but a lifestyle.” With all of the traveling your professorial friend or family member does, these journals might be the only way you really know what went down in Borneo.

Jachs Brushed Wool Herringbone Blazer Sometimes, when one is leading a life of the mind, it can be hard to know, or even truly care what is fashionable in the far-flung reaches of 2015. That is why the choice of a brushed wool herringbone blazer is always a good one. Whether it’s used for a walk through the crisp air of the quad on a brisk mid-winter morning or keeping office hours late into the chilly night, in threads this stylish, all choices are the right ones. With functional buttonholes and a double vent body, it’s time to teach the world fashion as well as liberal arts.

Filson Tin Packer Hat Whether it is about creating the mysterious persona of an adventurer-cum-academic or just looking snazzy while teaching a semester abroad, this fedora-like hat brings the attitude. It is not only water repellant, but also comes with side ventilating grommets and an interior cotton sweatband to keep everything breathing properly. While the hat itself might not inherently make one Indiana Jones or even a reasonable facsimile of one, there is no harm in adding a little dash to your Dashiell Hammett fan club. One could argue that, combined with the herringbone blazer (from Revolvr), achieving tenure might be the least interesting thing in your future.

Fir and Grapefruit Travel Kit Sometimes life as a shaper of young minds can be difficult and, dare we say, stressful. That is why taking advantage of each and every moment to treat oneself should never be dismissed. This travel kit contains fir and grapefruit scented moisturizing body wash, triple-milled bar soap (one or two mills never being enough, really), a shea butter lotion, and, the deal sealer, a 100 percent vegetable wax candle. Does it smell like a trek through the snowy woods or like a fruity kiss from Sylvia Plath? Don’t we deserve both? We do?!? That’s nice of you to say!

Yeti Cooler Any fisherman, hunter, or avid outdoor enthusiast needs a cooler that will keep items cold and ice from melting for days. One of the best and a favorite of many is the YETI. Founded in 2006, YETI builds long-lasting coolers that are “grizzly tough.” YETI describes its cooler saying it’s built for “the long haul” and for “the wild.” YETI manufactures a vast array of outdoor gear besides coolers that any sportsman or woman will appreciate. YETI coolers can be found at many outdoor stores in Central Oregon, including REI.

REI, 380 SW Powerhouse Dr. $350

Scott Fly Rod Many locals and newcomers alike have a passion for Central Oregon’s fly-fishing opportunities. Whether it’s the upper or lower Deschutes, the Crooked, Metolius, or Fall River, we have an abundance of choices to chase redbands, browns, or brook trout. A quality fly rod is a must. There are numerous manufacturers and one of the best lifetime rods is made by Scott and can be found at the Confluence Fly Shop in the Old Mill District. The Confluence Fly Shop is a fly-fisherman’s “candy store” featuring hundreds of must-have items.

Confluence Fly Shop, 375 SW Powerhouse Dr Suite 100 $795

Traeger Grill Once the fish are clean, they’re ready for the grill, and a Northwest favorite is the wood pellet-fired Traeger. Manufactured in Oregon, Traeger had humble beginnings and a limited supply, but word began spreading and today the Traeger is one of the most popular cooking grills with dozens of models and several varieties of wood pellets with which to cook and smoke meat. The company also offers an extensive cookbook full of mouth-watering ideas. It’s no wonder why many restaurants also use this grill for their specialty meat products. Traegers can be found at numerous locations including the Sportsman’s Warehouse.

Sportsman’s Warehouse, 63492 Hunnell Rd $699.99

Head gloves A pair of warm gloves is essential to any outdoor enthusiast. Made with cyclists in mind, Head manufactures one of the most lightweight, form-fitting gloves, which allow for great hand and finger flexibility while keeping cold temperatures at bay. Except for extremely cold conditions, these gloves are good for almost any outdoor activity and can also be used as a liner or underlayer inside heavier gloves. You find many upland bird hunters and golfers using these gloves. One of the best places to find them is at Costco.

Costco, 2500 NE Hwy 20 $12.99

When outdoors for hours—especially in brisk conditions—it’s hard to beat a little liquid warmer contained in a cool-looking flask! Whether it’s a single-malt scotch, a blended whiskey such as Pendleton, or a brandy, a “nip of the spirits” is often appreciated by outdoorsmen and women. One of the coolest flasks we found is manufactured by Simms. There are many models and sizes with artwork of fish. This is Simms’ “Rainbow” flask and it can be found at the Confluence Fly Shop in the Old Mill District.

Cigars Flask An old classic never dies—that’s why a newly crafted flask can make a great classic gift. Be Oregon—an outdoor company—began making Oregon lifestyle-inspired T-shirts and expanded from there. Be Oregon’s flask is made from walnut or cherry wood and its antler logo is hand carved on the front. Perfect for a quick vacation if you’re not up for venturing out of the house or in case of the next snowstorm, this wooden flask keeps your favorite beverage of choice in close proximity. True to classic form, this flask is only available in store.

Now that Cuba and the United States are friends, the dissolved embargo may soon allow for the sale of the highly sought-after Cuban cigar. But until then, if you are in search of a whole tobacco leaf filled with fermented tobacco, cigars can be purchased at McMenamins Old Saint Francis School’s O’Kanes bar. The tiny bar has a knowledgeable staff that can help you pair cigars with scotch—whether you’re looking for a smoky scotch or island-y flavor. They can also be smoked at the bar. Cigars come wrapped and make shopping for the occasional cigar smoker a cinch.

O’Kanes behind McMenamins Old Saint Francis School, 700 NW Bond St $5.50-$11.50

Pocket Watch

Be Oregon, 126 Minnesota Ave. $40

Time can be on your side—literally—by giving the gift of a classic pocket watch. What better place to purchase a timekeeper than at a local antiques store.

If you’re more adventurous and looking to save a few dollars, pocket watches that need a little work are available as well. Ditch technology and get this oldie but goodie for someone who always needs the time. Trivia antiques only sells its classic finds in store.

Trivia Antiques, 106 NW Minnesota Ave, Bend $22-$375

Shavrz Shave Soap

As uncommon as it may be in Oregon, a good close shave is something that should be done with care. So if you’re looking for a gift for the regular shaver, make a small investment to ensure that friend or special someone is getting a smooth, clean shave. Made from natural ingredients like olive oil, shea butter, fuller’s clay, palm oil, and coconut oil, shave soap also comes in sandal wood, basil mint, timber, and green tea scents. Packed in a 4-ounce tin, this handy soap is stored easily and can be taken wherever you need to go.

Element 909, 909 NW Bond St $10

Bowtie, Pocket Squares, & Suspenders What suit would be complete without a bowtie, suspenders, or a pocket square? These accessories can add a seamless classic touch without breaking the bank. Spruce up that boring, empty pocket with a shiny square or impress the business crowd with a pair of linen suspenders. Bowties come in a variety of timeless patterns and colors like navy and polka dots. Revolvr specializes in men’s clothing and their bowties are made stateside. For the “Mad Men” fan, you can’t go wrong with a dash of vintage accessory flair.

Solo Viaje has a huge, old school, almost Wolfmother-ish sound that can’t be underestimated. Their dark, bluesy, stoner rock vibe makes for one of the best local band live shows, and a CD release party seems like just the place to become familiar with them because, eventually, you will be. Get ready for face melting. 8:30 pm. Thursday, Dec. 10. SOBA, 945 NW Bond St. No cover.

Portlanders Fruition brings its multiple genres to town, with many strings attached.

Y

ou can’t always judge a book by its cover, though sometimes, those assumptions can color the content. Though Portland-based band Fruition is composed of stringed instrument players—including a mandolin—and its music has always had folk-tinged roots, it was never meant to be a bluegrass band. Still, over the years, Fruition accepted this fate and began blending a bluegrass sound into the mix, creating a fusion of genres en route to rock with a motley crew of other influences.

to you?

We caught up with guitarist and co-vocalist Kellen Asebroek before the band’s trip to Bend to find out more about Fruition’s roots and where it’s heading.

SW: What bands (bluegrass and otherwise) have the biggest influence on Fruition’s sound?

Source Weekly: For the uninitiated, what’s the band’s origin story? Kellen Asebroek: Some kind of musical magnet attracted us all to Portland from different parts of the country. The crucial moment for us really coming together was when Mimi and I were out busking, and ran into Jay, who’d recently moved to Portland and was out to busk as well. We decided to join forces on the street. When we realized that three-part harmonies came easily between us, we ran with it! SW: Fruition is a great word. How did it come to be the name of the band? KA: Mimi had just been performing under that moniker, along with our friend Rowan Cobb and whomever else she invited to play. I actually remember her coming up with it and being like, “Dude, I have the perfect name for a band.” And it really is. What else is a band besides a realization of efforts and a growth of an idea into a fully blossomed outcome? SW: Why do you think the band migrated toward bluegrass? What does bluegrass mean

KA: Honestly, we became a stringband because, well, we had stringed instruments. None of us had a bluegrass background. And if you listen to the early stuff, we don’t sound like a traditional grass outfit. It was always more folk-leaning; when people see a mandolin, upright bass and acoustic guitars, they assume bluegrass. That being said, we did learn how to be a grass band, but we were really just pushing forward always toward eventually being a rock band.

KA: We all come from varied backgrounds and it’s evident in our sound that Fruition is a combination of so many influences. The Beatles are a huge influence for all of us, and understandably so—they were the same kind of mish-mash of genres that unified into their own unique “sound.” SW: How do you share songwriting responsibilities and how does the sound and tone of each song shift based on who wrote it? KA: There are three songwriters in the band: Jay, Mimi, and myself. You can definitely hear our individual styles come through on each different tune, but there’s also this great synergy that happens once we all come together for the final product. You can hear our different approaches to songwriting, but the songs end up having a “Fruition” sound regardless. It’s really cool. SW: Fruition makes generous use of harmonies. Why do you think more bands don’t? KA: Good question! It may be that pulling off three parts is challenging, and we are lucky enough that it comes naturally between the three of us singers. Or it may be that pop music today is more focused on one “lead

singer” as opposed to three. The fact that we trade off lead responsibilities is fairly uncommon in this day and age. We like to take the Beatles or Grateful Dead or CSNY approach. Different lead singers on each tune, but with a unified sound that happens when we come together. Plus, one of the most blissful feelings in the world comes with singing harmonies with other humans. More people should try it! SW: How has the band’s sound changed over the years, and where do you see it heading in the future? KA: I mentioned earlier how our beginnings were in a string-band format. But it was a string band that wanted to be a rock band. As we progress through the years and the albums, we are evolving into a more well-rounded rock sound, but always nodding to our folk roots. As we grow as people and musicians, we are constantly trying new things, pushing new sounds and taking more risks.

BLOOD ON THE DANCE FLOOR Nothing like some screamo electro-pop to get us all in the mood for the holiday season. A Blood on the Dance Floor show is unlike any show you will see this year with their theatrically dark and broody emo side contrasting with their glam/goth side to make the entire experience a dizzying study in contrasts. Go get weird. 7 pm. Wednesday, Dec. 9. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave. $15

SW: What should fans expect from the upcoming LP? KA: The upcoming LP was recorded during the same sessions as our recent EP, Holehearted Fools. It came out so wonderful. Warm tones, new ideas, and tons of attention to sonic detail. The LP is definitely more psychedelic than any of our previous efforts, and definitely more rock ‘n’ roll. We’ve always considered ourselves a pop band—but the kind of pop that is timeless and classy, not so much in the vein of a lot of the current pop.

MIPSO Straight out of North Carolina, this fourpiece takes the best of Appalachian folk and bluegrass and puts their own unique spin on it.

ART WATCH

Christmas CULTURE Canceling Local playwright Cricket Daniel premieres her

By Corinne Boyer

newest show 29

By Jared Rasic

The gallery features bronze sculpture and paintings from artists in the Pacific Northwest, some of who are nationally established. Montana-native Collins’ newest oil on canvas captures a golden fall landscape with layers of texture giving life to the trees in his painting.

submitted

“Collins works mainly with a palette knife resulting in a thick impasto of color,” according to a press release. “He studies and paints the landscape—especially aspens—in every season.”

Cricket Daniel's newest play, The Night Before the Night Before Chistmas runs Dec. 4 through Dec. 19 at the 2nd Street Theater.

I

t seems like every year we’re examining a new Cricket Daniel play at 2nd Street Theater and 2015 is no exception. Daniel has been writing and producing her shows steadily since 2009, releasing the full-length shows Couple Dating, Love, Laughter & Lucci, Gina Galdi & Guest and Helen on Wheels. She has also written Kentucky Chickens and Break Dreams, a pair of 10-minute plays, the latter of which was made into a short film accepted by the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Her newest is The Night Before the Night Before Christmas. The play follows Lou and Carol, a couple 45 years into their marriage and extremely set in their rituals and ways, especially at Christmas. But this year things are different and the holiday is just not shaping up like Lou was hoping, so he and Carol decide to cancel Christmas and head somewhere a little warmer than their frigid New Jersey home. As they arrive at the airport, the storm gets worse and Christmas related hijinks ensue. Writing a Christmas show is a good move for a playwright and also something of a rite of passage. Just about every comedic playwright tries their hand at a holiday show because not only can it be quite lucrative (the play’s timeliness comes back every year), but the challenge of writing a Christmas show that

becomes popular around the country is a daunting and exciting one. “I had noticed, as a playwright looking to get my plays produced outside of the Oregon market, that when I would visit theater websites across the country the same Christmas plays were being produced every year,” says Daniel. “I wanted to write something new and contemporary, but still hold the magic of a classic Christmas story” Daniel’s trajectory as a writer has been interesting. She wants to eventually write for television, specifically in the realm of sitcoms, and if you look at her earlier work you can definitely see that influence. While well sketched, her characters in Couple Dating, Gina Galdi and Lucci are all broadly drawn with larger than life personalities and viewpoints that would fit well into a 22-minute sitcom time slot. With Helen on Wheels, she traded the constant joke delivery system of her earlier characters for people that seemed lived in and genuinely authentic. It’s actually a surprisingly moving play that proved Daniel could try her hand at drama if she really wanted to. “I don’t know if I would ever tackle a full-blown drama, but I do enjoy writing dramatic scenes,” Daniel says. “In The Night Before The Night Before Christmas, I have wonderful dramatic scenes that I think will

bring a few audience members to tears. I love to see members of the audience moved to tears when watching my plays. I mean, as a writer, that’s pretty powerful. It’s powerful and validating that I must be doing something right, you know?” Still, she says she’s sticking with laugh-makers. “But I am a comedy writer. My background is in stand-up and improv. It’s just in my DNA,” she explains. “So I think I will most likely stick to comedies, but tug at your heartstrings as I go. I know I personally love to laugh and cry during plays and movies. And I usually do write as both a playwright and an audience member.” As playwright in residence at 2nd Street Theater, she is encouraged to go in any direction she chooses and that should be interesting to see.

The Night Before the Night Before Christmas 7:30 pm, December 4-19. 3 pm matinees December 6 & 13 2nd Street Theater, 220 NE Lafayette $16-$19

Collins’ vibrant paintings have appeared in the Pentagon, a U.S. Ambassador’s United Kingdom home, and in the California State Capital, according to his website. “My goal as an artist is to move the viewer to experience a flood of powerful emotions, to feel the energy that flows through me as I put brush to canvas,” Collins says in his artist statement, “to convey my love of art and to passionately captivate and to inspire each person that views my paintings.” Walker is from Teton Valley, Idaho, and his love of the outdoors in evident in his art. Bart’s painting captures a man and his horse surrounded by lush mountains entitled “Morning Commute.” “Walker’s beautifully detailed paintings are reminiscent of early California landscapes, alive with deft brushwork and soft nuances of light,” according to a press release. Walker’s paintings have been featured in galleries across the country. He paints outdoors and his works include moose, livestock, seasonal rivers, mountains, and natural landscapes. Before Walker began painting he was usually backcountry skiing, fly fishing, and mountain biking, and his landscapes and work reflect his time spent outdoors, according to his website.

Natural BORN Raiders

Bend Oregon Raider Nation gives back By Jared Rasic 31 “We cook and serve dinner bi-monthly at The Bethlehem Inn,” Mystic says. “We have adopted two roads. We have adopted a park. We do holiday toy drives. We have done many events helping out the Ronald McDonald House. We work with [Central Oregon Veterans Outreach] and raise awareness and do food drives for them also. This year we will have a float in the Bend Christmas parade with our own Raider Nation group 4DUB actually performing on it live. So we are much more than just a football club, but also a humanity coalition of positive rebel forces.”

Long-time Bend resident, DJ, and musician Aaron Chambers (AKA MC Mystic, Raider Mystic) has been a die-hard Raider fan since birth, when his father took him to games.

The group performing on the float, 4DUB, is made up of Mystic himself along with Mr. Green Leaf from Long Beach and Spidey Locc from Compton. They rap exclusively about the Raiders and are halfway done with producing their third album. Now those are fans.

I used to have trouble understanding why or how people became super fans of teams from cities they had no connection to. I knew someone who would bleed for the Dallas Cowboys even though they had never set foot in Texas or watched any football aside from their games. But that kind of connection and that sense of being a part of something larger than yourself is arguably what humanity strives for the hardest. Being a fan of the Raiders or the Cowboys is really no different than loving Benedict Cumberbatch or obsessively watching “American Idol,” and Raider Mystic is taking his love of that team and making some incredibly positive contributions to Central Oregon and beyond. Three years ago, Mystic founded the Bend Oregon Raider Nation (or B.O.R.N), a Raiders fan/booster club.

“No matter what stage I have been through in my life the Raiders were always a part of my Sunday tradition,” Mystic says. “It’s a way of life and if you’re not inside of this beast it’s hard for you to understand.”

Bend Oregon Raider Nation gathers for games and gives back by taking part in community service.

“I started B.O.R.N. as an idea about 8 years ago and created the group page on Facebook and then left it on the shelf because I knew once we started it would be full steam ahead,” says Mystic. “Being a Raider fan is not just being a fan of a team but being a part of a giant family, the Raider Nation, where we have each others’ back also.” Since then, the group has grown to about 355

Nashelle Designs will be there selling a necklace specifically designed for Charlotte and 100% of the net proceeds will go to Charlotte’s fund

between the Facebook page and email list, which receives weekly updates. Mystic says some of the group’s members drive up to 130 miles round trip to attend meetings in Bend. But B.O.R.N. isn’t just about celebrating a mutual love of a sporting franchise, it is about improving the lives of the people in Central Oregon.

This type of fandom is refreshing in an era where social media allows us to connect with people who like the same things we do from all across the world, but still keeps us insular from them. Unlike the fans of Star Wars, who love the franchise deeply but spend most of their time picking it apart and fighting over what remains, B.O.R.N. is about something different than that. “It has become way more than just a game,” says Mystic. “The Raider Nation is one of the strongest families you will encounter. So not only are we now tied together through love for the same team and the same sport, we have gotten way deeper than that and are now all family. We support each other when needed. We lift each other up and help when needed.” Go team.

T

he Oakland Raiders are one of those football teams where their long and storied history is usually more dramatic than what is going on during the games. Growing up in Northern California, whether they were the Oakland Raiders, the L.A. Raiders, or when they headed back to Oakland, the Raiders were always my team of choice. I never cared too much about football itself, but boy did I love West Coast rap music, and the Geto Boys and N.W.A. told me the Raiders were important, so important they became.

Homegrown culinary business sources local, healthy ingredients for its soups and salads.

L

ike many of the best chefs, Kortney Barnes took her first culinary courses at the school of mom.

“Some of my fondest childhood memories are in the kitchen cooking with my mother,” recalls Barnes, owner of local soup-and-salad slinger Bean, Pea, and the Pumpkin. My mother rarely used a cookbook but instead allowed her skills, instincts and whatever was in the refrigerator to guide her.” Taking a page out of that book, Barnes shares that fondness for good food, prepared with love, with Bendites through her organic, gluten-free, and locally-sourced soups and salads. “Cooking has always been a love and a hobby of mine,” she explains. “There is nothing better than spending the day in the kitchen, chopping vegetables and then presenting the dish to family and friends to enjoy.” Barnes says the decision to start a soup company was a no-brainer. She was already concerned with preparing quick, healthy, and delicious meals for her three children—the company’s namesakes—and knew that other families must be looking for ways to accomplish this with their busy schedules. And while she could have gone in any number of dietary directions, she chose soup. “I focused my business on soup because I love soup,” she explains. “Every day is a good day for soup, especially delicious soup that is made from scratch with fresh, seasonal and

organic ingredients. Soup is also the perfect way to incorporate healthy ingredients— vegetables, grains and legumes—into your diet.” Bean, Pea, and the Pumpkin got its start just over a year ago, starting with a circle of friends and quickly expanding to include retail and dining locations such as Little Bite Café, Crow’s Feet Commons, and Central Oregon Locavore, in addition, delivering directly to businesses and residences. Bean, Pea, and the Pumpkin also offers soup subscriptions and does tastings around town. At the Dec. 4 First Friday Art Walk, they will be serving samples of soup and salad at Footzone in downtown Bend. “From my network of friends and family, word of our soups and salads spread quickly through Bend. But support also came from the wonderful network of local Bend businesses,” Barnes says. “As a business in the Makers District, I feel lucky to be surrounded by other creative, like-minded small business owners who are willing to not only support other local businesses but share their expertise on how to succeed in Bend.” And the Bend native works Agricultural Connection to source local ingredients from producers including Rainshadow Organics (Sisters/Terrebonne), Cinco Estrellas (Junction City), Good Earth Farms (Bend), and Juniper Jungle (Bend). When those fresh ingredients meet with Barnes’ mind, the results are an ever-evolv-

ing list of creative concoctions. Currently in rotation are soups including butternut squash soup with coconut and ginger, pork and pumpkin stew, curried chicken soup and salads like vegetarian salad nicoise, kale salad with toasted almonds and curry dressing, and a crunchy winter salad with broccoli and cauliflower. “The secret to our delicious soups and salads is in our seasonal produce,” Barnes explains. “Our local farmers provide us with incredible organic produce and we let that dictate what soups and salads land on our weekly menu.” It’s a nod to her mother’s cooking style, which frequently drew from what was on hand or in the cupboards, as well as the region's agricultural bounty. But it’s not just the produce that has Barnes proud to be a local. “This year I have learned that even with the changes and growth, Bend continues to be a proud community of people and businesses who support local business and want to see them succeed,” Barnes says, noting that she recently added her first employee—Cascade Culinary Institute graduate Jessica Smith. “I feel really lucky to be a part of this community and have a small business in Bend, Oregon.” To learn more about Bean, Pea, and the Pumpkin, visit beanpeaandthepumpkin.com.

Getting Beer Fans’ Goose

Bourbon County Stout 2015 debuts to cheers and chagrin

Unique Holiday Gift Ideas

33

A

s recently as a few years ago, obtaining bottles from Goose Island’s Bourbon County Brand Stout lineup of barrel-aged wonders wasn’t very tough. Just go to Chicago, stop by the Binny’s liquor store nearby their brewpub, and stock up. InBev, a new and enormous barrel-aging facility, and—most of all—hype has changed all of that. Nowadays, Goose’s annual BCBS release on Black Friday is a coastto-coast event, marked by lotteries, waiting lists, degenerate beer speculators chasing delivery trucks around, and dozens of people waiting outside liquor stores in Philadelphia at 4 a.m. (A typical night in Philly, in other words.) What’s the big deal? BCBS, which debuted in 1992, is the front face of one of America’s oldest barrel-aged beer programs, earning a well-deserved reputation for depth and complexity in an era long before every neighborhood brewery had a couple whiskey barrels bumping around. The 2015 edition comes in six

variations—regular stout, coffee stout, barley wine, rye stout, the Chicago-exclusive Proprietor’s BCBS and Rare BCBS, aged in 35-year-old Heaven Hill whiskey barrels for the past two years. If you’re planning to pick some of this up around Bend, you’re likely already too late by the time you read this. Regular BCBS will be found in relatively small quantities around Central Oregon, but the variants were mostly distributed on tap across the I-5 corridor, including four at once at Belmont Station in Portland. This year, that might be for the better. Rare BCBS, assuming you found one, retails at $60 for a 16.9-ounce bottle—a price point that made Internet commenters howl about InBev attempting a cash grab with its vaunted brand. Early reports indicate, however, that regular old BCBS (at a much more reasonable $10) is the best of the 2015 lot anyway. Alcoholic without featuring a major alcohol burn, it’s packed with heavy chocolate and vanilla flavors, making it easily drinkable now and even more delectable if you’re willing to sit on it for a few more months. Can’t find any? Don’t worry. The Abyss is coming soon anyway.

OUTSIDE Ice, Ice Baby

The Pavilion prepares for winter sports

GO HERE By Brian Jennings

By Brian Jennings 35

I

f all goes according to plan, the Bend Park & Recreation District will have a giant holiday present for Central Oregonians to open. Recreation Director Matt Mercer says the long-planned “Pavilion in Bend” anticipates an opening between December 19 and 24. As The Pavilion’s website explains: “With the opening of The Pavilion this winter, ice skating and sports return to the heart of Bend! Just like the old days of the slab at Juniper Park and the pond at Shevlin Park, now we can slide, glide, twirl and curl together. Ah, nothing warms the heart like a giant sheet of ice.” For Mercer and others, getting the new construction “across the finish line” is a dream come true. Many people have been watching construction of The Pavilion progress adjacent to the westside roundabout at Simpson and Colorado. For ice skaters, figure skaters, curlers, hockey players, and ice sport lovers, it’s been a long process that dates back a decade when a year-round and/or seasonal ice rink proposal began receiving both private and public scrutiny. It was subsequently decided that a seasonal approach was best—ice sports in the winter and other sports and recreational opportunities including fitness programs, swimming, and a gymnasium offered in warmer seasons. The ice rink will be the size of a National Hockey League arena where kids can learn not only to skate but also to play hockey. Mercer anticipates a great deal of interest in hockey and eventually a competitive youth program that will involve more than 300 kids in organized leagues. The Pavilion, he says, will be the “foundation of an ice sport

culture” in Bend and will help foster competitive ice sports for generations to come. A 30,000-square-foot roof will protect the ice from sun exposure and reduce wind while maintaining an open-air feel. There will be warming rooms with a fireplace and an elevated viewing area where crowds can watch all activities on the ice. Four changing rooms will be provided for team use. An outdoor plaza features fire pits, snow play areas, and a small shelter. The lobby area will include full

service concessions for hot drinks, snacks, and meals. But that’s only the ice sports component of what is planned for The Pavilion. The complex, originally the Mt. Bachelor Park & Ride site, takes up approximately three acres of a 13-acre site now owned by the city. With the extra 10 acres of available space there will be more recreational development in the future. But with a winter opening during the holiday season, the focus now is on ice sports and events. Mercer anticipates The Pavilion will become popular immediately. Depending on the activity, the number of users will range from 25 or 30 for practice sessions to hundreds drop-

ping in for skating. During open skate times, speed skating, hockey, and advanced figure skating won’t be allowed. For youngsters wanting to learn to skate, there will be several levels of instruction available from tots to teens. Skate rentals will also be available on site. For groups celebrating special occasions, open skating can be accompanied by a party room rental. There will be ample parking on site and on nearby streets. Bike racks will be located at the entrance and The Pavilion can be accessed on Cascade East Transit, with the bus stop approximately one block away. Mercer also says there has been growing interest in the sport of curling, which is a major part of The Pavilion’s recreation plan. He likens it to “pickle ball on ice” and says it seemed “a good fit for Bend.” The Pavilion will offer times where people can drop in to learn and practice their curling skills. Organized curling games will be featured once a week on Sunday evenings. Speaking of pickle ball, Mercer says the sport isn’t just for seniors anymore. He says there is a growing awareness of the sport among younger people because it provides a fun social opportunity for all. Other non-ice seasonal activities will include basketball and tennis. According to Mercer, the objective of the Pavilion is to offer “a diversity of activities” for everyone, depending on the season. With months of construction nearing completion and the anticipated opening only days away, check the schedule of events along with the latest opening news, fees, and schedules at bendparksandrec.org/the-pavilion/facility-tour/.

The greater sage grouse has received much attention this past year. In September, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service made a monumental decision to not list the grouse as endangered under the Endangered Species Act. For the past five years this iconic bird has been under the microscope due to dwindling numbers in the 11 western states where the bird is found. Wildlife biologists estimate there were once more than 15 million birds roaming the western United States and Canada. Today, between 500,000 and 2 million birds inhabit the sage steppe. What led to these dwindling numbers? There are several factors, including human development. According to biologists, the bird needs a lot of space to thrive. The threat of being listed as endangered led to massive conservation plans in Oregon and other states that will be implemented and closely monitored for success. For instance, Oregon has led the way in juniper removal on public and private lands. The bird and junipers don’t mix. Birds of prey use junipers to stalk sage grouse and their nesting areas. Junipers also consume a great deal of water and crowd out the sage brush that is essential to the health of the grouse. Where there are fewer juniper trees there is more and better sage habitat for the grouse, mule deer, and pronghorn antelope. For westerners, the greater sage grouse represents a way of life. For many Native Americans, it represents a harmony with nature that is essential to life. When the grouse thrives, the entire eco-system thrives, including hundreds of other birds, animals, and even insects. To see the sage grouse and its mating habits, this footage videotaped by Wahoo Films and provided by the Oregon Natural Desert Association is a fascinating view: http://bit. ly/SageGrouseDance

eth Rogan has built a cinematic empire on the back of basically being a fearful Peter Pan. While a huge amount of his roles have centered around man-children caught in the throes of fighting their way out of arrested development, The Night Before manages to sit a little further along the timeline. He is also not the main focus in a film much more concerned with the difficulties in sustaining a friendship into adulthood than gross-out humor, or a bunch of dick and fart jokes. Although there are plenty of those as well. The Night Before tells the story of Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen), and Chris (Anthony Mackie), three best friends on Christmas Eve, following their annual tradition of getting schwasty and having a night out in New York. Isaac is getting ready to have his first child with his wonderful and supportive wife, and Chris is a full-blown celebrity having his best season yet in the NFL, but Ethan is still stuck in a place where making huge life choices is impossible. Fourteen years earlier, Ethan’s parents were killed by a drunk driver on Christmas Eve and Isaac and Chris wouldn’t let him sit in depression. They took him out for Chinese food, karaoke, to see the tree at Rockefeller Center, and even went on a massive hunt for

a white whale, urban legend of a Christmas Party, and every year since they follow that tradition. But this year is their last since Chris is becoming too famously important and Isaac is going to be a father, so Ethan is desperate to have this night be the best one yet.

they make up in time for the movie to end?) and a couple of pretty pat resolutions, all of it works just enough to keep the goodwill flowing.

None of this would work if it weren’t for the three leads—and JGL, Mackie, and Rogen have chemistry to spare—making their friendship seem lived-in. There are moments of such authenticity in their relationship that it’s surprisingly sharply observed for what is basically being sold as a “dumb” comedy. Many of the jokes here are built from the characters and the truth of their relationships and lives. Grounding a comedy that deeply in the world that it has built gives the film emotional stakes most comedies don’t...which is why most of them are bad. But with all this talk of emotional stakes and sharp observations, none of it matters unless the movie is funny and The Night Before delivers a steadily escalating cavalcade of laughs. The more time we spend with Rogen, Mackie and Levitt, the more we like them, root for them, and want to see everything work out OK, even when they’re being dicks and doing dumb crap. While the film has a very stereotypical structure for a comedy (Friends fighting in the third act! Uh oh, will

FEATURED FILM EVENTS

One of the main reasons so much of the film works is Jonathan Levine’s direction. Instead of being shot by some of the typical comedy directors in the business, The Night Before is only improved by Levine’s eye for authentic moments. Two of his films, The Wackness and 50/50, are easily overlooked 21st century classics, and while The Night Before isn’t quite on the same level, it definitely sits comfortably in Levine’s filmography. Packed with great cameos (Michael Shannon steals this film with both hands as drug dealer Mr. Green), a few solid belly laughs and a surprising amount of heart, The Night Before won’t change your life or even really give you a deeper connection to Christmas, but it’s a good story well told. Not all films need to be that important. Some, like the very best of friends, are just there when you need them.

Rifftrax: Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny

Balanchine’s The Nutcracker

The Rifftrax team has been doing some solidly hilarious work over the last few years, by taking the Mystery Science Theater 3000 formula of making fun of bad movies and applying it to all movies. Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny is a super bizarre holiday flick that will align with Rifftrax’s sensibilities perfectly.

It certainly isn’t December without a showing of The Nutcracker somewhere, and it looks like the first one of the season is at Old Mill 16. This screening shows a performance of the classic at the Lincoln Center by the New York City Ballet and includes some behind-the-scenes footage of the company and production.

BRIDGE OF SPIES: Steven Spielberg’s first film since the masterful Lincoln sees Tom Hanks as an American lawyer recruited by the CIA during the Cold War. While Spielberg’s 2000s output has been stronger than he gets credit for, a re-teaming with Tom Hanks for a spy thriller seems like just the thing to get the critics back on his side. One of the best films of the year so far. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

CREED: Advanced word on this has Creed being hailed as one of the finest films of the year and a beautiful swan song to the character of Rocky Balboa. This film follows the son of Rocky’s greatest opponent, Apollo Creed, as Rocky trains him to become the boxer he was meant to become. While this could have been a sentimental slog, it appears the film might be a true contender. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE GOOD DINOSAUR: While the trailers for this haven’t really been exceptional, Pixar so rarely disappoints that just having their name on it is enough to get most people into the theater. Especially following their alltime classic, Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur is coming at a time where dinosaur love is peaking. The animated film follows the journey of a dinosaur and his companion, a cave-man boy who acts like a dog. The jury is still out with this one.

been going forever, Mockingjay Part 2 should give the epic series a proper sendoff. As fans of the books know, this is part of the story where everything actually happens (unlike the completely event-free Part 1), so tissues should be held at the ready. This will also be Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s final screen appearance so, even if you don’t watch the movies, it will be worth seeing just to say goodbye. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

LOVE THE COOPERS: An all-star Christmas comedy filled with the likes of John Goodman, Alan Arkin, Ed Helms, Diane Keaton, Marisa Tomei and Olivia Wilde. A heartwarming look at four generations of a family under the same roof trying to connect, while also dealing with unexpected guests, alcohol and all kinds of mild-mannered hi-jinks. Should be fairly innocuous fun for the whole family. Old Mill Stadium and IMAX

In the old Trax building next to Stars Cabaret

MEET THE PATELS: A documentary that follows an Indian-American man who is about to turn 30. His traditional family (extended and otherwise) take it upon themselves to arrange his marriage in ways both hilarious, frustrating and horrifying. One of the most entertaining documentaries of the year and guaranteed to make you belly laugh. Tin Pan Theater THE NIGHT BEFORE: Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie are wonderful in this comedy about childhood friends who might be celebrating their last Christmas together before all of their lives change forever. Fueled with drugs, alcohol and the search for a legendary party, The Night Before shows us the holiday spirit as can only be found at the bottom of a night of true debauchery. A very fun ride. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

THE PEANUTS MOVIE: It really is about time for the Peanuts gang to make their return, but we’ll see if audiences can accept them in the form of 3D animation instead of hand-drawn. The story sees Snoopy and CB both facing off against their own personal nemeses while living their typical hang-dog existences. Expect parents to be just as moved (if not more so) than their kids. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX SECRET IN THEIR EYES: This is a remake of a fantastic Spanish thriller from a few years back, directed by the guy who wrote Captain Phillips and a few other great flicks. This follows a team of investigators whose lives are shattered when one of their children is murdered. If this film is half as good as the original, crime thriller lovers will have a new classic on their hands. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX SPECTRE: Coming after the most financially successful and critically applauded Bond film in history, Spectre has some extremely large shoes to fill. UK reviews for the film were almost universally positive, while US critics have been less than kind so far. The US is right. Dull, dreary and airless, this is easily the worst Bond film of the Craig era. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX SPOTLIGHT: An amazing cast takes on the story of the The Boston Globe and its investigation into John Geoghan, an unfrocked priest accused of molesting more than 80 children. This, of course, led to the discovery of the Catholic Church’s cover-up of sexual abuse dozens of more times across the years. Prepare to get angry, feel vindicated and get angry all over again. One of the best films of the year. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX SUFFRAGETTE: This movie is catching some flack for whitewashing the entire suffragette movement after there were quite a few women of color involved. The film has a powerful cast and some excellent filmmakers involved, but the miniscule focus and lack of historical diversity mar what could have been a very important film. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

TRUMBO: The always excellent Bryan Cranston plays Dalton Trumbo, the screenwriter behind Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, Spartacus and many more. The film follows Trumbo during the Hollywood Blacklist days and the difficulties in his life that accrued because of his alleged ties to communism. That dark era in Hollywood is a fascinating one and worthy of a dozen motion pictures. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN: As much as we collectively love the story of Frankenstein and the work of James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, the trailers for this one are just plain bad. We already had a lackluster Universal Monster origin story recently with Dracula Untold, but now we’re getting the CG enhanced slog through Dr. Frankenstein and Igor’s mythology. Everything about this should be cool (especially with Radcliffe playing Igor), but seriously, have you seen that trailer? Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX

a bus that never comes.

—Wondering Admittedly, women aren’t going to psychics and asking, “Tell me, Madam Sasha…will he have recreational sex with me? I NEED TO KNOWWW!” Still, there are plenty of lusty women who are just looking to bed and shed a guy. And I do get email from women desperate to get their man to put down “Call of Duty” and put out. But anthropologist Peter B. Gray and evolutionary biologist Justin Garcia write in Evolution & Human Sexual Behavior that a survey of the scientific literature finds what many of us probably recognize—that men, on average, have stronger and more consistent sex drives. As social psychologist Roy Baumeister put it in one of these studies: “Men want sex more than women at the start of a relationship, in the middle of it, and after many years of it.” Gray and Garcia explain that “within an evolutionary lens, this (difference) makes sense.” They’re referring to how it was in an ancestral man’s (gene-spreading) best interest to have sex with any woman who’d have him. Women, however, benefited from being choosier—holding off from going into the bushes with just any “hit ‘em and quit ‘em” Mr. Neanderbrow, which could leave them as the sole caretaker for one or more little Neanderbrows. But there’s choosiness and there’s choosing to replace hot sex with hot scrapbooking. When sexologist Rosemary Basson read a 1999 study with over a third of women reporting “low sexual desire,” she began to wonder whether the problem is in the women or in the expectation that desire in women will play out the way it does in men. Basson found that in the early stages of a relationship, or if women are away from their partner for days or weeks, they will have that from-out-of-nowhere lust to get it on that men do. But once a woman settles into a relationship, sex often becomes a “responsive event.” This doesn’t mean her sex drive is permanently up on blocks on the front lawn. It’s what Basson calls “triggerable,” meaning that a woman first needs to start fooling around, which will lead to her getting aroused. She’ll then feel desire and be up for sexcapades. But because many couples don’t know this, their sex lives (and often their relationships) go to pot while they wait around for the woman’s desire like

This should tell you that it’s wise, when in a relationship, to schedule not just date night but sex date night. Sure having this as an event alert on your iPhone—just below “City Council meeting”—probably sounds pretty unsexy. However, it’s ultimately a whole lot sexier than getting to the point where your penis starts rogue-answering your phone with charming little greetings like “Death Row, how may I direct your call?”

Blareway To Heaven My friends are shocked at how honest my boyfriend and I are with each other. He’ll tell me I need to brush my teeth…again. I’ll ask him if he’s heard of deodorant. We tease each other a lot, but it’s not mean-spirited. We love each other. Also, he says he’s grateful that he doesn’t have to constantly censor himself with me as he did with his previous girlfriends. But are we being too honest?

—Worried Sometimes the naked truth needs a back wax before it gets presented to anyone. But it really depends on the audience. You two, for example, seem to have a mutual admiration society with moments of “Umm… perhaps you hadn’t noticed…” The message? “Be yourself! But with one fewer green thing between your teeth.” Marriage researcher John Gottman finds that what matters is the overall climate of the relationship—whether it’s a warm and loving friendship or the kind of “ship” where one longs to shove the other overboard when the cruise director rounds the corner. Gottman also emphasizes the importance of raising issues gently and sooner rather than later. Your way may not seem gentle to your friends, but providing that you don’t start seasoning your humor with contempt (which Gottman finds is a real relationship-killer), you probably have a good chance of growing old (and smelly) together. Picture yourselves in the old fogies home, reciting romantic poetry to each other—like this one (which I think is from Tennyson): “Roses are red, violets are blue, you look like a monkey, and you smell like one, too.”

I’m a man who has been married three times. Upon reflection, it seems to me that most women are ultimately not that interested in sex as a recreational activity. I try to be a selfless and devoted lover, but I always see a steep drop in a woman’s sexual interest after we’re together for a while. Can I do something to avoid this?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “Once I witnessed a windstorm so severe that two 100-yearold trees were uprooted on the spot,” Mary Ruefle wrote in her book Madness, Rack, and Honey. “The next day, walking among the wreckage, I found the friable nests of birds, completely intact and unharmed on the ground.” I think that’s a paradox you’d be wise to keep in mind, Capricorn. In the coming weeks, what’s most delicate and vulnerable about you will have more staying power than what’s massive and fixed. Trust your grace and tenderness more than your fierceness and forcefulness. They will make you as smart as you need to be. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aztec king Mon-

A Phone Company That

ACTUALLY Picks Up?

tezuma II quenched his daily thirst with one specific beverage. He rarely drank anything else. It was ground cocoa beans mixed with chili peppers, water, vanilla, and annatto. Spiced chocolate? You could call it that. The frothy brew was often served to him in golden goblets, each of which he used once and then hurled from his royal balcony into the lake below. He regarded this elixir as an aphrodisiac, and liked to quaff a few flagons before heading off to his harem. I bring this up, Aquarius, because the coming weeks will be one of those exceptional times when you have a poetic license to be almost Montezuma-like. What’s your personal equivalent of his primal chocolate, golden goblets, and harem?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “Unfortunately, I’m pretty lucky,” my friend Rico said to me recently. He meant that his relentless good fortune constantly threatens to undermine his ambition. How can he be motivated to try harder and grow smarter and get stronger if life is always showering him with blessings? He almost wishes he could suffer more so that he would have more angst to push against. I hope you won’t fall under the spell of that twisted logic in the coming weeks, Pisces. This is a phase of your cycle when you’re likely to be the beneficiary of an extra-strong flow of help and serendipity. Please say this affirmation as often as necessary: “Fortunately, I’m pretty lucky.”

That’s Totally OFF the HOOK! What’s up with business phone providers that make you talk to a robot or wait on hold forever? Shouldn’t a phone company know how to answer the phone? At locally-owned BendTel, your call is answered by a live human being right in our downtown Bend office. Call us & find out for yourself!

ARIES (March 21-April 19): “Charm is a way of getting the answer ‘yes’ without having asked any clear question,” wrote French author Albert Camus. I have rarely seen you better poised than you are now to embody and capitalize on this definition of “charm,” Aries. That’s good news, right? Well, mostly. But there are two caveats. First, wield your mojo as responsibly as you can. Infuse your bewitching allure with integrity. Second, be precise about what it is you want to achieve—even if you don’t come right out and tell everyone what it is. Resist the temptation to throw your charm around haphazardly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I suspect that in the coming days you will have an uncanny power to make at least one of your resurrection fantasies come true. Here are some of the possibilities. 1. If you’re brave enough to change your mind and shed some pride, you could retrieve an expired dream from limbo. 2. By stirring up a bit more chutzpah that you usually have at your disposal, you might be able to revive and even restore a forsaken promise. 3. Through an act of grace, it’s possible you will reanimate an ideal that was damaged or abandoned. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): To the other eleven signs of the zodiac, the Way of the Gemini sometimes seems rife with paradox and contra-

diction. Many non-Geminis would feel paralyzed if they had to live in the midst of so much hubbub. But when you are at your best, you thrive in the web of riddles. In fact, your willingness to abide there is often what generates your special magic. Your breakthroughs are made possible by your high tolerance for uncertainty. How many times have I seen a Gemini who has been lost in indecision but then suddenly erupts with a burst of crackling insights? This is the kind of subtle miracle I expect to happen soon.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): In September of 1715, a band of Jacobite rebels gathered for a guerrilla attack on Edinburgh Castle in Scotland. Their plan was to scale the walls with rope ladders, aided by a double agent who was disguised as a castle sentry. But the scheme failed before it began. The rope ladders turned out to be too short to serve their intended purpose. The rebels retreated in disarray. Please make sure you’re not like them in the coming weeks, Cancerian. If you want to engage in a strenuous action, an innovative experiment, or a bold stroke, be meticulous in your preparations. Don’t scrimp on your props, accouterments, and resources.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you give children the option of choosing between food that’s mushy and food that’s crunchy, a majority will choose the crunchy stuff. It’s more exciting to their mouths, a more lively texture for their teeth and tongues to play with. This has nothing to do with nutritional value, of course. Soggy oatmeal may foster a kid’s well-being better than crispy potato chips. Let’s apply this lesson to the way you feed your inner child in the coming weeks. Metaphorically speaking, I suggest you serve that precious part of you the kind of sustenance that’s both crunchy and healthy. In other words, make sure that what’s wholesome is also fun, and vice versa.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your mascot is a famous white oak in Athens, Georgia. It’s called the Tree That Owns Itself. According to legend, it belongs to no person or institution, but only to itself. The earth in which it’s planted and the land around it are also its sole possession. With this icon as your inspiration, I invite you to enhance and celebrate your sovereignty during the next seven months. What actions will enable you to own yourself more thoroughly? How can you boost your autonomy and become, more than ever before, the boss of you? It’s prime time to expedite this effort.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Police in Los Angeles conducted an experiment on a ten-mile span of freeway. Drivers in three unmarked cars raced along as fast as they could while remaining in the same lane. The driver of the fourth car not only moved at top speed, but also changed lanes and jockeyed for position. Can you guess the results? The car that weaved in and out of the traffic flow arrived just slightly ahead of the other three. Apply this lesson to your activities in the coming week, please. There will be virtually no advantage to indulging in frenetic, erratic, breakneck exertion. Be steady and smooth and straightforward. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will generate lucky anomalies and helpful flukes if you use shortcuts, flee from boredom, and work smarter rather than harder. On the other hand, you’ll drum up wearisome weirdness and fruitless flukes if you meander all over the place, lose yourself in far-off fantasies, and act as if you have all the time in the world. Be brisk and concise, Scorpio. Avoid loafing and vacillating. Associate with bubbly activators who make you laugh and loosen your iron grip. It’s a favorable time to polish off a lot of practical details with a light touch.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Like all explorers, we are drawn to discover what’s out there without knowing yet if we have the courage to face it.” Buddhist teacher Pema Chödrön said that, and now I’m telling you. According to my divinations, a new frontier is calling to you. An unprecedented question has awakened. The urge to leave your familiar circle is increasingly tempting. I don’t know if you should you surrender to this brewing fascination. I don’t know if you will be able to gather the resources you would require to carry out your quest. What do you think? Will you be able to summon the necessary audacity? Maybe the better inquiry is this: Do you vow to use all your soulful ingenuity to summon the necessary audacity?

Shopping in Bend this Holiday Season? Take time to relax and...

Home Buying for the Holidays By Erin Rook

While there’s no Search for a New Home Sunday to correspond with the other shopping-themed holidays (Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, etc.), and while traffic to the real estate website certainly dips on actual holidays, there does seem to be a burst of interest around this time of year. The analysis found that while most people are too busy gorging on turkey and fixings on Thanksgiving to search for real estate, some

states are less impacted by the tryptophan than others—including Oregon. And, somewhat surprisingly, Realtor.com saw particularly high traffic just after another holiday, Christmas. “Dec. 28 was actually one of the busiest days for real estate searches in the entire year,” wrote Yuqing Pan of his analysis, “despite the fact that Dec. 24 was the single slowest.” Another high performing winter day? New Year’s Day. Pan posits that perhaps people are using the post holiday downtime during the vacations to do some browsing. Or that, maybe, buying a new home is one some folks’ list of New Years’ resolutions. Whatever the case may be, it’s clear that there are a handful of holiday season sweets spots for homeowners looking to make a winter sale.

C

onventional wisdom states that winter is a less than ideal time to list a home. The logic behind this belief is that people are more inclined to visit an open house—or to drive a U-Haul full of their belongings— during the warmer, drier summer months. But a recent analysis of web traffic to Realtor.com reveals some surprising data about when interest in home buying is highest.

ome people call it the “Northwest Speed Ball,” but my group of friends calls it the “Hippie High Ball.” Whatever you call it, people in the Northwest have been mixing coffee and cannabis since the 1960s.

The effect of consuming both drugs simultaneously is synergistic. Caffeine is absorbed by the body immediately, but cannabis takes considerably longer (30-90 minutes). According to experts, cannabis can prolong the caffeine high. With the war on cannabis use ending, many of the best ideas for combining coffee and cannabis are—like many other things—coming out of the closet. Cannabis legalization has allowed coffee-cannabis consumer products to emerge. These products have the potential to change the way both drugs are consumed. With the coffee market in America at over $9 billion and the legal cannabis market at $3 billion, the potential for the canna-coffee market seems to be significant. An early leader in coffee-cannabis products is Mirth Provisions, which was created by entrepreneur Adam Stites. Mirth makes a line of potable cannabis products named “Legal.” One such drink is coldbrewed coffee infused with 20 milligrams of THC. For now, Legal is available only

in Washington. Fairwinds Manufacturing is another canna-coffee maker. Fairwinds produces Catapult, which is a pouch of ground coffee beans infused with cannabis oils. The pouch is designed to fit a Keurig-like coffee machine. For now, Catapult is also available only in Washington. In California, House of Jane makes prepackaged pouches of canna-coffee for sale in medical dispensaries. Also in California, canna-coffee has entered the high-end market. The L.A. company Compelling and Rich passes vaporized cannabis over green coffee beans before roasting. The resulting coffee has a distinctive cannabis taste, but does not get the drinker high. But that limitation is driven only by the current legal situation. If on-site cannabis consumption were legal, canna-coffee could be made to order like any other coffee drink. In Alaska, the Marijuana Control Board recently voted to allow on-site cannabis consumption at cannabis retailers. This makes Alaska the first state to allow onsite consumption and paves the way for canna-coffee shops. Given that Alaska has some great coffee bars and is legendary for its strong coffee and prolific coffee consumption, it seems fitting that the Last Frontier should be the first frontier for canna-coffee.
