Prineville to the Lions 

Residents in Prineville are trying to save Christmas from the godless atheists over at the ACLU who would stop the city from erecting a Nativity outside Prineville's town hall.

While folks in Bend have been praying for spring, a group of residents in Prineville has been focused intently on another season as of late and it isn't summer. They've been thinking about Christmas, and thinking hard. Some of them have been hitting the streets, gathering signatures in an effort to save Christmas - not from the Grinch, mind you. No it's worse. They're trying to save the holiday from the godless atheists over at the ACLU who would stop the city from erecting a Nativity outside Prineville's town hall.

Battling the ACLU over a uniquely Christian display might seem like a fool's errand. But don't tell that to the God-fearing folks in Prineville. But after the city has gotten so much positive press, thanks to the successful recruitment of Facebook's data center, do city leaders really want to put forth Prineville as a community that went to the mat over delusions of Christian persecution? This isn't Rome, folks. WTF?

    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.
