A Problem of Poop 

We have been wanting to write our opinion for a long time and as time goes on, we see that the problem is getting worse and worse the more we are out and about. In most parks and trails in Central Oregon, doggie doo-doo bags are provided. While most owners do use them, too many leave the used bags along the trails, on fences or in the middle of the trail.

If the poo is left to decompose outside of the bags, that is exactly what will happen. Decomposition! But in the bags, they are more of an eye sore and do not decompose. Come on people. If it makes you feel better to pick up the poo, (and we are glad that you do) please finish the job and walk it to a trash can. We own three oversized dogs, who, you can imagine, make big messes in the parks, yet we can walk five miles with it in the doo-doo bags and toss it in the trash as a courtesy to others who want to enjoy the outdoors as much as we do without seeing the mess or having to pick up after other less-courteous dog owners.

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
