Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

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.
