The Spring Stud Storm 

There's really no point in complaining or even commenting about the weather in Central Oregon. It's just to predictably unpredictable. Summer one day and winter the next. But one meteorological phenomena continually leaves us scratching our heads and that's the inevitable snowstorm that follows springtime reminders to get our studded tires off our cars and our beleaguered roadways. It never fails. Every year as studded tire deadline approaches a storm rolls as if to punctuate the folly of a winter without studs. Even in this El Nino year where the grind of studs on bare pavement has become a constant backdrop in Bend, the four winds see fit to throw a nearly weeklong winter storm. We're not a holy bunch around here, but we're starting to think that the Good Lord Above is a minority partner in a certain formerly Prineville-based tire franchise.

  • 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.
