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: Tribal Politics, Abortion Access, and Tunnel Wars

Posted By on Mon, Aug 4, 2014 at 10:37 AM


POLITICS:
Joe Pakootas (D) is the first tribal member to ever make a serious bid for Congress in Washington. He's not expected to unseat five-term incumbent Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R), but his campaign—and story—is still noteworthy. (Al-Jazeera)

ABORTION:
A portion of an Alabama law that sought to require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital has been ruled unconstitutional. A similar law was recently blocked in Mississippi, where doctors come from out of state to perform abortions, since no doctors in the state will. (USA Today / MSNBC / Esquire)

TUNNEL WARS: Gaza isn't the only place where tunnels are being used for military operations. In Iraq, Islamic State insurgents are reportedly using tunnels built by Saddam Hussein to make their way to Baghdad. (Reuters)
