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.

Kids to Parks

Posted By on Thu, Apr 21, 2016 at 11:29 AM

Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon has joined a bipartisan effort in introducing a measure to encourage active lifestyles for children by designating May 21 as National Kids to Parks Day.  

"A love of the outdoors is rooted in the hearts of Oregonians at an early age, and children who grow up enjoying Oregon's wondrous treasures develop an appreciation for nature that lasts a lifetime," said Wyden.

Wyden joins other Senators including Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah, Dianne Feinstein, D, California, Lamar Alexander, R, Tenn, and others in introducing the resolution.  Pic:  Farewell Bend Park.
