IN REPLY TO "BEND RANKS SECOND IN THE NATION FOR PEOPLE OF A CERTAIN POLITICAL BENT" (10/20) I think anyone who lives here long sees the truth.
VOTE YES ON MEASURE 92 TO
LABEL GMOS Don't be taken in by the opponents' deceptions on Measure 92.

FREE ENTRY FOR POLITICS
Regarding two items in your magazine(?).One is the "boot" article "Show Me the Money" (9/17). You take a focus on [Jodie] Barram as being one of the most active on the [City] Council.
LET'S GROW BEND BETTER, NOT "BREWTAL" Some dots for all of us (including city council, [Oregon Liquor Control Commission], [Oregon State University], public health) to connect, and quickly: Bend's rapid shift from a hospitality-based economy to a "hops-economy" (most breweries per capita in the USA; more ale trail map downloads than city maps; increasingly creative beer-based services including "Brewtal Festivals" promising "excessive amounts of beer," and beer chug race finishes) + rising college age drinkers + land use infill/development code changes for commercial zones adjoining neighborhoods hollowed out with vacation rentals.
KEEP IT REAL So, I moved to Bend a little over a year ago, and my family and I are starting to feel more a part of the community.
