Your support for independent local news is important.

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.

Mike West, owner of Bend Fish Co., Dies of Heart Attack

Posted By on Thu, Feb 3, 2011 at 12:06 AM

Last week, the owner Bend Fish Co., Mike West, died at age 51 from a heart attack. West was also a restaurateur in the Eugene area. Bend Fish Co. has since closed its doors and the building is up for sale.

West’s memorial service was this past weekend and we hear it was standing room only, with friends flying and driving in from around the country. Natalie Hathaway, a former employee and family friend, described West as “somebody that you wanted to know – he always made everyone feel welcome. Anyone who knew him described him as a generous, loving man who changed their life.”

Our condolences go out to his friends and family.

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon

    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
