Board Kills Magnet Reform Effort (12/23): 

Are we to continue to use our mistakes to respond to our current problems? Or can we reflect a maturing and practical society by utilizing our precious natural resource of human minds and hearts by making a better choice and making the important small steps of becoming a more responsible and sustainable society. When we marginalize the upper class, making education quality prejudicial, and focusing our sustainability on short-term or in-the-box economics alone we risk the very foundation of our community itself, the empty houses of second home owners and the unavailability of housing markets for the middle and lower class, directly destroy us as a community, taking diversity and a preventing a solution of elevated community relationship and self efficient economic and environmental sustainability. I ask that we take our time to respond to what is most important to us as a maturing and responsible people looking to our most obliviously beneficial future, let's make sure our Bend, Oregon, magnet schools are accessible, and fairly non- prejudicial to reflect our choice of concern for ourselves and each other as a community of the future by representing and advocating for our children now. Thank You.

  • 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.
