100% Local. No Paywalls.

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.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Portland's Bishops Barbershop Comes to Downtown Bend

Opening soon.

Want a hip haircut? One that won't make you look like your dad (or your dad's dad)? Bishops Barbershop, a Portland chain for "Generations X, Y and Z that delivers high-end salon quality at affordable prices in a casual, fun environment that includes edgy artwork and music, and trend-setting stylists" is moving into a vacant spot on Oregon Avenue, next door to the former Common Table. They don't take appointments and but they do give patrons a cold bottle of Miller High Life (if they're of age). If you trust Yelp reviews, it seems Bishops is fairly well liked—by men and women. The chain, which has built its reputation on quick, affordable trims (a clippers only cut is $12), has thrived in the Rose City, with 12 locations and counting. A Seattle location is in the works.

In Bend Bishops will be competing with the decades-old L&K Barber Shop just across the street, as well as the three other established, independent downtown barbershops (not to mention the myriad salons). Can they all make it? Who knows! But a barbershop that serves beer is always welcome. Especially one that promises to not me you look like a doofus.
