Leonard's Flight Suit Moment 

Portland City Commissioner Randy Leonard dons a fire suit and scrambling onto the roof of the still-burning building to "assess" the situation.

Most news savvy Oregonians saw the recent dramatic footage of the Marysville school fire that featured flames leaping out of the top of the school building. What most people didn't see is Portland City Commissioner Randy Leonard donning a fire suit and scrambling onto the roof of the still-burning building to "assess" the situation. The incident which earned the fire bureau a rebuke from OSHA, was pure flight suited Bush on the USS Lincoln. A former fire fighter, Leonard apparently just couldn't resist the opportunity to jump into the fray with the camera's rolling. The stunt earned him four hours of mandatory annual training in fire zone safety protocol and a guarantee that he will be baby sat on future fire scenes by an incident commander. If you were looking to make an ass out of yourself Randy, let us be the first to say: Mission Accomplished.

    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.

    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.
