Re: “OLD TIMERS: The 1970s

I live in Elko Nv. In 1978 I was driving through Bend from SLC , Ut. As we were driving through the town, we saw an old car garage. Above the door it said Jetts Garage. I was pregnant at the time and my husband loved the name Jett if it was a boy. Well we named him Jett and now after 40 years I am trying to see if anyone remembers it or may have a photo. Getting nostalgic in my older years. If anyone remembers it please contact me. Or post here. Thanks so much

Re: “Campbell Announces Re-Election Bid

Reelect Barb! Keep this scrappy, progressive fighter on our City Council. Bend is more than an economic bubble for developers; it is a community with all types of people engaged in living amazing lives. Barb will continue to be their voice and a champion for neighborhoods, renters, working families, small businesses, and those who are disabled. Pick any issue that improves health and livability in our city and there you will find Barb dug in and working to bring it about. Barb recognizes the importance of local democracy and open government in dealing with issues now being neglected at the Federal level: public transportation; affordable housing; environmental sustainability. On the very tragic and vexing matter of gun safety, Barb recently co-challenged a Deschutes County ballot initiative that would have eliminated all current Oregon safeguards--including background checks--had it qualified for the ballot.

Re: “Franklin Tunnel Revival?

Hopefully the train horns from the Wilson or Reed Market crossing north can be silenced. This would definitely help generate interest in the BCD. Silencing the train horns through central east side Bend seems like the only way the hoped for residential components of BCD will succeed. It's been done successfully elsewhere - the crossings just need to be upgraded. Applaud these efforts to clean up the underpass - thank you!

Once again Vulcan argues with those that are critical in the comments. Notice there aren't any comments that are stoked on the article?

Re: “Franklin Tunnel Revival?

Hey Anon- The artist mentioned in the article is me. One of our/my visions is to use non-paint materials, landscaping, etc, so don't worry about paint chips. Do you ever walk this part of town? If you do, you would know that it DOES need some awareness about how many people actually use it, and give some care to an area that needs a little love. Well, a lot of love. Please note the second part of that sentence you highlighted. Why don't you read the full Initial Proposal- it's on the Project Underpass facebook page, and also on my Patreon page. Would you like to volunteer to help clean up? Cause we need all the help we can get. It could be beautiful. Thanks. Kaycee Anseth PS- For the Record, while I graciously appreciate the support I have gotten so far from BCD and LandWatch, the proposal is entirely my words and vision SO FAR, though I look forward to making it a collaboration.

Re: “10 Lakes, 10 Days

Next time, please consult the USFS and speak to their PR folks before promoting these places. The public is destroying our public lands because of stories like this that fail to talk about the 10 essentials, proper permits, etiquette, safety, etc. Stories like this are exactly why the wilderness is being shut down.

Re: “Walden Should Follow Through on Debating McLeod-Skinner

Walden seems to be afraid of McLeod-Skinner. Walden has basically had a free ride all the years he has supposed represented his district. Sadly, he seldom represents the demographics of his district. In voting against the ACA and other safety net programs, he simply thumbs his nose at the majority of folks in his district. Now he occasionally show up in the public because has a formidable opponent. Man up Greg Walden! Put on your big boy pants and debate McLeod-Skinner. You owe it to the people in your district - not the DC and Trumpette crowd.

Re: “Walden Should Follow Through on Debating McLeod-Skinner

Walden knows that McLeod-Skinner will have him on the ropes if he debates her. He should cowboy up and agree to put his policies and plans up against hers. If he doesn't, he'll prove that he doesn't want voters to have a choice in November. Who's he representing?

Re: “Franklin Tunnel Revival?

More "awareness"
So is this going to be like the storm drain educational murals painted on the sidewalks all over town to raise "awareness" of pollution that goes into the storm drains and river that are now chipped, deteriorated and most of the paint is now in the storm drain/river.

Re: “10 Lakes, 10 Days

anonymous: Since you continue to write these comments as Anonymous, it's hard to take your comments seriously. One solid option for you: Stop reading our site. Reading the Source is not a requirement for you or anyone.

Our job is to write stories readers are interested in. That "furthers our portfolio," I guess... but since it's our JOB to do so, that's not exactly the goal.

Re: “10 Lakes, 10 Days

And yet another top ten places with directions to push tourists to for future and current overuse. Anyone can open a map and see these lakes, do we really need bi-weekly lists of places just to further Nicole Vulcan's portfolio.

Re: “Time Running out to Submit Signatures for County Gun Measure

The recent Circuit Court challenge by 2 local women to the original ballot language of the petition changed it to read, "Authorizes Sheriff to determine constitutionality and enforceability of firearms regulation." Even ardent gun advocates recoil from conferring such overreaching authority to a single individual. Not exactly a selling point for libertarians.

Re: “Small Victories

Congressman Rob Bishop (R-Utah) obviously has a personal profit driven agenda, but funny how the Source is all about conservation issues until it comes time to write another "top ten places" for tourists to destroy for the writers own profit.
Maybe Wanderlust Tours can start a on the hour every hour helicopter tours over endangered sage grouse habitat and the Source can write a glowingly bias article driving tourists there claiming this is being done for "awareness". Or possibly we need "beer tours" of sage grouse leks. The cycle-pub could send obnoxious drunk screaming tourists out to observe mating sage grouse, (just think about the Instagram selfie possibilities). That's "awareness", "education" and "tourism" all in one package. Both of these options are a win for everyone making money off the environment (unfortunately to the detriment of the creatures who live in that environment).

Re: “Enjoy Protect Respect

So all the organizations responsible for overuse and trashing of our local river for their own profit now want to raise "awareness" of garbage, claiming there good deeds are why only 434 lbs of garbage was collected this year and not more.
Pretending people are just ignorant of the fact that the river is not where you dump your unwanted garbage and just need a committee promoting "education", "awareness" and a "raffle" is quite pretentious and self serving, but probably makes some people feel good while the commercial interests continue to profit from the destruction of the river corridor.

Re: “got permits?

And yet the Source continues to push these overused places every week to tourist, one "ten more places to destroy" article after another. The source is as much at fault for this as any other tourist catering organization in Bend..... Shameful on the Source's part simply for their own profit.

Re: “Day Trips Without Cars

Great another tourist article in the series of "10 more places to destroy," sporting more illegal drone use for the cover shot.
