What in the World: Flowers in Beards, Journos in Detention, and Fires in Central Oregon | 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.

It's been said that beards have reached their peak and are on their way out of style, but can fusing facial hair with flower chains postpone their demise? You be the judge. Also, please send us photos of your Bend floral beard crowns. (Mic)

IMMIGRATION: Activist and journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, who came out three years ago about his status as an undocumented immigrant, has been detained at the McAllen, Texas International Airport. He was en route from the border town where he was documenting the plight of refugees. Since opening up about his status, Vargas has travelled to 4e0 states using only his Filino passport as identification. (CNN)

FIRE: Sparked by recent lightning storms, fires are breaking out across the state  including the Buzzard Complex Fire, 45 miles northwest of Burns, which has torn through more than 10,000 acres, including parts of the Warm Springs Reservation. (Oregon Live)
