Bring Band of Horses Back to Bend

Posted By on Mon, May 31, 2010 at 6:00 AM

Wow. Just wow. LSA (les schwab amphitheater) is back for 2010 in a big way with last night's Band of Horses show. That was some unapologetic, unbridaled rock and roll that managed to make half the audience swoon. And, oh yeah, there was a full-on Fourth of July fireworks dispaly over the river BEFORE the encore, which-btw-on Rd. 3 was Yo La Tengo.

Sorry did my face just melt off?

Long live wild horses.

REJ.

Source staff gets a nod from the Society of Professional Journos

Posted By on Thu, May 27, 2010 at 4:27 PM

We’re a pretty humble bunch around here, but we just had to let ya’ll know that your hometown alt weekly nabbed a couple of nods this past week from the Society of Professional Journalists for our writing and reporting in 2009. Competing against non-daily newspapers and magazines from across the state and in southwest Washington, the Source garnered awards for news, social, issues and business reporting. Most notably, Arts and Culture editor Mike Bookey took home a first place award for his news feature “Poet. Friend. Killer?” about Jason Centrone, the artist turned transient who killed two other men in a local homeless camp. Bookey’s story beat out features from no less than the Willamette Week to win the top honor. Other winners included Editor Eric Flowers who grabbed a second place in the social issues category for a piece on sustainable agriculture. Contributor Daniel Pearson took home a third place award for a feature piece on the struggles at KOHD. Without the support of readers and advertisers, we wouldn’t have a chance to tell these kinds of stories. So thanks for sticking with us. Here’s to more good scoops in 2010.

alex kaufman Mt Bachelor's marketing director Alex Kaufman has left the company in what he calls a mutual decision to separate.

Kaufman who was known for his hands on approach to marketing helped modernize the mountain's social marketing campaigns, moving Bachelor aggressively in to the world of Facebook and Twitter.

Kaufman came to the mountain roughly two years ago along with President Dave Rathbun following a purge by parent company Powdr Corp, which saw the departure of then president Matt Janney, operations chief Ernie Pool and Kaufman's predecessor Carly Carmichael.

Kaufman said that he wasn't sure if he would remain in Bend, but added that he would be making the decision soon whether to stay or leave since his wife is pregnant.

Controversial Land Use Cop Out in Bend

Controversial Land Use Cop Out in Bend

Posted By on Thu, May 20, 2010 at 9:52 PM

 

 A state land use planner who has been a thorn in the side of the city’s long suffering UGB expansion proposal announced today that he is retiring early. Mark Radabaugh has served as the state’s point person throughout the city’s prolonged UGB process and has been a pointed critic of the city’s unprecedented expansion proposal.

Radabaugh’s dogged skepticism about Bend’s ambitious plan earned him plenty of scorn from local politicians and planners. Councilor Mark Capell in a January interview with the Source likened the city’s relationship with Radabaugh’s employer, the Department of Land Conservation and Development, to its well-publicized feud with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission and called Radabaugh a “roadblock.”

Radabaugh’s supervisors however stood by his work publicly and have defended the department’s overall review that was based in large part on Radabaugh’s research and comments.

“I know there have been some differences of opinion and some personality issues and I stand behind Mark. I think he’s done an excellent job,” Whitman told the city council in January.  

Based in part on Radabaugh’s review, the state decided earlier this year to send the city back to the proverbial drawing board, a process referred to in planning speak as a “remand.” The city opted to appeal the decision rather than revamp its proposal, presumably to a more modest request. After a series of recent hearings, the state’s oversight commission voted to largely uphold the department’s recommendations.

1,000 Friends Friends Bend Again

Posted By on Thu, May 13, 2010 at 9:37 PM

Environmentalists rejoice! Oregon's pre-eminent statewide conservation group 1,000 Friends of Oregon is kicking of its renewed commitment to Central Oregon with an open house this evening at its new regional office, conveniently located above the Summit Saloon and Stage. Festivities begin at 7 p.m at the Summit where light refreshment will be served, according to the group. Executive Director Jason Miner will be on hand to talk about the organization's statewide plans as well as its plans for Central Oregon where the group has hired two staff members, local land use attorney Pam Hardy (formerly of Central Oregon Landwatch) and Ben Gordon, formerly of OLCV, to advocate for conservation causes in our backyard. The event concludes with a tour of the new offices which will be newly furnished with works from local artist Genessa Goodman Campbell (who also happens to work for the Oregon Natural Desert Association) and photographer Jim Davis. The event is free and open to the public.

"We want to bring the community together to know we're here, engage in some dialogue and get used to the idea of coming to our office," Gordon said.
