Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

Citizens across the West are faced with less benefits, rising unemployment (in Spain, about 46% of those under 25 are unemployed) and will likely face longer working lives than their parents, according to an article in this week's The Economist. The everyman is still feeling the squeeze from the ongoing global financial fizzle, while it seems the bankers and big corporations are back to big yields.

Just know what you're getting into, man.
