What in the World? Today's News | Bent

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.

Fukushima—now sweltered with high radiation levels after the 2011 earthquake and disaster at the nuclear power plant—is still struggling to recover with a 20-mile evacuation zone around the plant that could take up to 40 years to be safe for inhabitants.
