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.

Friday Mixtape: Mixtapers of the world, UNITE!

In America, we celebrate work on Labor Day. But in the rest of the world, they do it on May Day, the first of that flower-filled month, which is also the date that massive demonstrations in 1886 helped to establish the eight-hour workday, with much resistance on behalf of the robber barons. So, in solidarity, we made a mixtape of work and union songs, including everything from classics by Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger to neo-classics like Dead Prez's hip-hop retelling of the worker exploitation in George Orwell's Animal Farm.
