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.

Before you read on, we ask you to consider becoming a member of our Source Insider membership program at bendsource.com/insider.

Nike is a No-Go

Nike is not coming to Bend.

Oregon State Senator Tim Knopp, of Bend, sent an email to local journalists, politicians and economic leaders this afternoon delivering the news.

"As we anticipated I heard back from NIKE and their expansion is going to focus on metro area sites for the following reasons... workforce needs, adjacency with business partners and operational costs," wrote Knopp. "Sites outside of the metro area don’t meet the criteria requirements."

Sigh.
