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.

What in the World: Booze, Bees, Bikes and Fashionable Fugitives

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2014 at 11:51 AM

BOOZE: Do you consider yourself a "heavy drinker"? What does that even mean? Well, the Centers for Disease Control has an idea, but you probably won't like it. If you have more than a drink or two a day (depending if you're a gal or a guy), you may meet the qualifications. (CNN)

BEES: The Oregon Department of Agriculture is temporarily banning the use of pesticides linked to bee deaths, following high profile incidents in Eugene and Beaverton. Why should you care? Because, food. (KTVZ)

BIKE DRAMA: The Alliance for Biking and Walking recently got riled up about the alleged future exclusion of non-motorized commenting options from future censuses. The catch: They aren't going anywhere. Was the advocacy group confused or simply stirring the pot? (Oregonian)

FASHIONABLE FUGITIVE: WikiLeaks' Julian Assange is due to make his modeling debut at a London Fashion Week event at the Ecuadorian Embassy (where he's been hiding out to avoid extradition). Hot or not, designer Ben Westwood says he chose Assange for political, not sartorial, reasons. (UK Independent)

#YESALLWOMEN: Witnessing a man touch himself in public is such a common experience for women that in London, more than 2,000 officers have been trained to deal with unwanted sexual advances in public transportation. Dudes, keep it in your pants. (The Guardian)
