Ashamed of The “R”? 

Has anyone else noticed that the jumbo political signs popping up around Central Oregon for Republican candidates (Tim Knopp, Jason Conger, Gene Whisnant, etc.) fail to mention their political affiliation?

I would be naive to assume they are so ashamed of what the Republican party has become that they want to distance themselves from it.
More likely, knowing they have the votes of Republican loyalists, they are attempting to build name recognition with independent and uninformed voters in hopes of getting "I've heard that name" votes at election time.

More of the same from the party of George W. Bush.

  • 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.
