What in the World | 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.

What in the World

Posted By on Mon, Jun 23, 2014 at 12:08 PM

The U.S. Supreme Court has released decisions in three cases, including Utility Air Regulatory Group v. EPA, in which it ruled that, while the Environmental Protection Agency was getting a little big for its britches  it should still be able to tell 83 percent of greenhouse gas emitters to clean up their act.

The Sudanese woman sentenced to death for refusing to renounce her Christian faith has been released and reunited with her husband  Though her father is Muslim, Meriam Yehya Ibrahim considers herself a Christian, as does her husband. Her brother, who brought the complaint against her, believes she is Muslim, which would invalidate her marriage. As such, she had been convicted of both apostasy and adultery. No word yet on why she was freed.

Times continue to be tough in Detroit, where half the residents are behind on their bill and the city has shut off water for thousands. Activists are hoping the U.N. will help.

Dov Charney finally got fired as CEO of American Apparel after years of sexual harassment accusations and plummeting stocks. Predictably, he's pissed, and says he'll sue if he doesn't get his job back.

In the interest of ending on a light note: Don't miss this video of a guy removing an owl from his abode using a Swiffer—and the evil death glare the bird gives him for being put out.
