Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
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.

What in the World?

Posted By on Mon, Jan 27, 2014 at 10:51 AM

A roundup of the weekend's news:

The Grammy Awards go political: Yes, awards went to the Pacific Northwest's own Macklemore, who sprung from obscurity to shift the center of hip hop, but it is probably the massive translation of his song "Same Love" which will be remembered: During the award ceremony, 33 same-sex couples were married, live, on-air, by Queen Laitfah.

Olympic countdown: Bend nordic ski coaching heading to Sochi: J.D. Downing is coaching a husband-wife team as they head to ski in the Olympics. What makes the story especially keen is that, one, the skiers are in their 40s; and, two, they represent a tiny Caribbean island of Dominica.
