Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Boys & Girls Club of Bend: The unfortunate fallout from the Aug. flood

Staggeringly, The Boys & Girls Club remains exposed.

Posted By on Thu, Sep 22, 2011 at 3:24 PM

Remember that freak hail/rain storm back on Aug. 4? As you may know, a lot of that water found its way into the Boy & Girls Club of Bend, which while undergoing a roof replacement, was left uncovered that night. Tons and tons of damage — walls, floors, equipment, etc. Oops. Cue the finger pointing, please.

Anyway, did you know that the Boys & Girls Club STILL has no roof covering it?! The building remains totally exposed to the weather, which is liable to turn at any moment as we enter the fall season in Central Oregon.

Pretty unbelievable, right? Who is is at fault and how the clean-up and restoration efforts will be paid for is unclear. Also unclear is why in holy hell is there (still) no roof on that building?

As the Dude said: "This is a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-you's."

While Maude isn't involved here in Bend, plenty of other parties are, including Bend Parks and Rec. (the landlord of the historic downtown building), as well as the General Contractor, Sub-Contractor and architecture firm involved with the roof project.

Here at the Source we aim to get the bottom of this. And we'll try to answer the question, where's the roof? Check back soon for a complete and in-depth story on this complicated and unfortunate case.
