  • A Property, A Dream, A Mission Sisters-area camp replaces problems with possibilities for at-risk youth

      Once or twice every summer, Dan Wieden - the Portland-based ad man who coined Nike's Just Do It slogan and whose award-winning agency Wieden+Kennedy boasts offices as far and wide as London and Shanghai - packs a day bag and heads off for camp in the Cascades outside of Sisters. Camp attire for Oregon's global media mogul? Nikes, of course. Levi's, another client, check. In them, Wieden, at 66, cuts the trim figure of a CEO who doesn't spend much time with his feet propped up on a desk. A straw cowboy hat adds some Central Oregonian, gentleman-rancher panache.
  • Cops and Jokers: The Other Guys pokes fun at the cop movie template

    If you're looking for some laughs, there's no reason not to see The Other Guys. Writer-director Adam McKay and his MVP Will Ferrell are funny guys, indeed - but maybe not quite as funny here as in some of their other movies.
      If you're looking for some laughs, there's no reason not to see The Other Guys. Writer-director Adam McKay and his MVP Will Ferrell are funny guys, indeed - but maybe not quite as funny here as in some of their other movies. This one begins big, with some other big-name guys. Samuel Jackson and Dwayne (formerly "The Rock") Johnson are perfectly cast as a couple badass NYC cops - chewing the scenery in a hysterical display of male-hormone-induced hubris within the first fifteen minutes of the film. The now-open honorary slot of baddest-ass-cop-duo beckons not only the more obvious hot-shots on the force, but perhaps also the "Other Guys" - those familiar, unnamed cop-genre extras who populate the background of the kind of movies this one parodies, uniformly identified as stock-character nobodies by really bad ties.
