The Darkness of Noon

Reporting from the ground in Washington, D.C.
>Editor's note: With the ongoing rhetoric about so much fake news—and the stonewalling of major media outlets by the new administration—we at the Source felt it was crucial to bring our readers a first-hand account of happenings in the nation's capital. Look for "Democracy in Crisis" in the Source the last week of each month.

Breaking the Broken Resolutions Cycle

Local Fitness Professionals and Their Clients Share Their Secrets to Success

Shelter from the Subduction Zone

If a major quake hits the Pacific coast, we'll feel it in Central Oregon—but the bigger shakeup will be from those using this region as a refuge from the destruction.
Across the Northwest, the threat of an impending major earthquake looms large—so much so that the state of Oregon has created the "Cascadia Playbook" to map out emergency response coordination efforts statewide. While the local area isn't expected to suffer serious damage, Central Oregon still plays a major role in that playbook.

Celebrating a Century

Deschutes County turns 100
Deschutes County is Oregon's youngest county, but this month, it's still turning the ripe old age of 100. It was 1914 when voters approved separating a portion of Crook County—itself part of the giant Wasco County until 1882— to form Jefferson County.
