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.

2016 is starting off rough.

Posted By on Thu, Jan 14, 2016 at 10:48 AM

2016 needs to pace itself. With the passing of David Bowie a few days ago, the world was already reeling, but this morning has brought the death of the exceptionally gifted actor Alan Rickman. He is probably most famous for playing Professor Snape in the Harry Potter movies, but older folk will always remember him as terrorist Hans Gruber in Die Hard or the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. For me, as much as I love those movies, I think I loved him the most as Alexander Dane in Galaxy Quest and as Marvin the Paranoid Android in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Everyone will have their favorites though, so leave yours in the comments.
