Where's The Help? 

It is highly outrageous what is happening in this country right now. Money is being poured upon the wealthy elite (banks, insurance companies, etc.) but for the people who need financial help, it is nowhere to be found. If you are unemployed, you can't get even a small loan, and forget about a refinance or mortgage restructure. And now funds are supposedly available through some grant (as published in "that other paper" recently) to help prospective homebuyers purchase foreclosed homes in the Bend area, to try to raise property values. What a travesty. Where is the help for people whose homes are currently facing foreclosure, to help prevent them from joining the ranks of the homeless? And on top of that, the American people let themselves be railroaded by the insurance companies and mega-corporations into believing that healthcare reform was a bad thing. Even the most naïve should have pause to think that if the insurance companies and other corporations are against healthcare reform, it must have some advantages over the current system for the average person.

  • 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.
