Re: “Mirror Pond: To Dredge or Not to Dredge?

The question isn't "what to do with mirror pond." The pond is dead, remove the dam, and let the river flow.

The question is how to make that happen.

Re: “We've hit peak "us vs. them" ire. Is this who we want to be?

My wife is from Bend and after living in Alaska and California she convinced me to move back here with her. I have been called a terrorist and one of the worst people alive by native Oregonians. I saw a sticker on a truck yesterday that said " Fuck Off, We're Full". It's hard for someone contributing to the economy in the area to face ridicule like that.

Re: “Bad Timing

Let's stop this cruel mistreatment of our neighbors--all the more troubling because public funds pay for it.

The solution stares us in the face. Below, from The Guardian (7/9/15).

"Just as the answer to hunger is food, the answer to homelessness is homes.

It costs more to keep people on the streets than it does to house them and provide any support services they may need. People who live on the streets dont get preventative medical care. They wait for a medical crisis and then go to a local emergency department, where care is most expensive. The rest of us pay for that healthcare at a premium. People who are homeless spend more time in the hospital, and more time in jail. All this costs public funds. Studies from New York to California show that permanent supportive housing costs less in the long run."

Re: “"Get Out Of Our Town" Painted On Summit of Pilot Butte

Kudos to "The Source" for not showing pictures of the vandalism !! Better to not give the vandals any publicity for their desecration of public property. Very sad that some individuals don't have better manners. Shame on them :-(

Re: “The Tortoiseshell Butterfly: Trust us, they're not monarchs

I believe this is the butterfly we just experienced a migration of in Sunriver, Oregon. Just after the Pandora moths seemed to disappear these little beauties appeared. Definantly not winter July 26-31. In the high eighties and even 90s. Curious, never saw them before this. I have some great pictures if you are interested.

Re: “War Games

Great review.

The true brilliance to me here is you never see a German. He did a "Jaws." Played with hints of existence. The machinations of war are there sure, in planes and torpedoes primarily, but never a human face. The enemy was always a moment away, never truly there, never seen or in your face. Lurking. Present. Any moment, you know, in your bones, ready to strike. Many times heard before seen. Which was such a brilliant choice. Giving characters time, so much time, to prepare to die.

This whole film was a phenomenal achievement. It's the closest any movie has ever come to making an audience truly feel what an historic wartime event was like, I thought. It's what Saving Private Ryan did with its first half hour or so. But Nolan did such a better job of keeping character perspective clearer than in Ryan's opening, which allowed the audience (me) to buy into the narrative and experience the ride, instead of merely observing it. I think this is right up there with Platoon and Full Metal Jacket.

Re: “Bend Burger Company Eastside

I wanted to like this place as it came highly recommended by my local family members BUT the service was essentially non-existent!! I arrived at 3:30 on a Saturday. When I arrived there were two families ahead of me who couldn't seem to decide what they wanted but it didn't matter as in the 10 minutes I waited in line no staff showed up at the register.There was no one else in the place. I bailed and went to the drive thru. After another 10 minute wait I made eye contact with someone behind the kitchen wall by looking thru the drive thru window. They ignored me. I gave up at that point. Sorry as there are many other food choices in Bend and I won't bother to return here. My son works for the city and I told him about this and he apologized and said he would spread the word. Maybe the other location is OK, I really don't have time to find out. FWIW I rarely review but this was over the top.

The author does not respect the land and should not steer readers to untrammeled places so they could pick up obsidian and take it home.

Re: “Letters to the Editor: July 17-24

For someone so supportive of the WNBR in Bend who went to the trouble of organizing it I would have expected him to at least mention it's primary purpose in his comments... protesting oil dependency and the environmental impact of a car culture. Sounds like he is more interested in the nudity part.

Re: “Eek!! Eels! The hagfish crash on Highway 101

I couldn't figure WHY these fish were in a truck, until I dug in at Wikipedia.
Wow. Their slime is coaxed from them by irritating their tanks with sticks, and it's used similarly to egg whites in cooking; and their skins are used for leather in belts and wallets.
