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.

Bend's Backyard Dump

Posted By on Thu, Feb 16, 2017 at 7:34 AM

For years, China Hat road which leads into the Deschutes National Forest has been a dumping ground.  It's not uncommon to find abandoned vehicles, used washers and driers, bed springs, mattresses, computer screens and TV's dumped in the woods off China Hat.  Not only is it an illegal dumping ground, but the area is used heavily by sport shooters.  Spent shells are seen everywhere.

In 2005, a Forest Service worker was wounded in the thigh by a stray bullet.  While the location where the bullet was fired was found, the shooter has never been found.

This podcast sheds light on this on-going problem in Bend's backyard.
