Re: “Oregon Winter Forecast: Another Snowmageddon?

That was one of the dumbest articles I've seen here in ages.

Re: “Getting Feet on the Street

Why would Redmond try to compete with Bends First Friday? That seems like a losing battle. How about doing a last Friday or Saturday? That would allow for locals to go to both if they so choose. Just a thought.

Re: “The Source Weekly - Pet Costume Contest!

Chuck, you're probably onto something. But, for me, I have to have at least one non-harmful way to get back at my pup for pooping on the floor... on purpose. Humans fighting back...

Re: “Bend or Bust

Great questions! We deeply care about the land we live on and the water we play on! We are currently working with Terracycle to try and work out an upcycle alternative with our expired products, and we are consistently working to improve our products - both in regards to usability and sustainability.

How about we stop dressing our dogs in costumes. Not ONE of them looks pleased to be fulfilling your dream of "how cute they are."

Re: “Bend or Bust

Are their products sustainable? Are they a petroleum based product, if so, forget it! And Hell No to a giant eyesore water park floating in the pristine waters of Bend, Oregon!

Re: “Packing Off Pack Rats: Don't kill the rats, move 'em

Don't relocate pack rats. They will come back to your property, or starve to death while trying. Drop the live trap with the rat inside in a bucket of water and dispose of the carcass accordingly. The MOST IMPORTANT thing to do is to destroy the nest, or you will never stop having issues with pack rats. Trap them in a live trap using peanut butter and saltine crackers. Works every time. Never use poison. Poisoned rodents end up killing other predators, such as owls, hawks, bobcats, etc. through secondary poisoning. There is no such thing as a "non secondary kill" poison, despite what anyone tells you. Trap the nest repeatedly until there aren't any more rats in there (I use a trail cam to ensure there aren't any more running around). Once you've got them all, rake the nest apart. Wear a mask and protective clothing. Spray the nest with insecticide to kill any kissing bugs or fleas. Leave it be for a day, then come back and shovel everything into a container and discard. Watch out for cactus spines in the nest. Try to avoid touching with your gloves (use a wide shovel and rake to pick up everything). Check your property periodically to prevent new nests.

Don't do whitewater with a leash. You may think you can release it, but you underestimate the crushing power of moving water. Learn the clean principle.…

Re: “Best Bag Ban: The one that sticks

Kudos? Really?
Hey for a Lot of people those bags are Not just Single Use. They get used for trash can liners or litter box scooping.
The Kudos should go to the stores that stop wrapping palate loads with miles of plastic wrap, the stores that don't throw recyclable plastics into the garbage can every day.
Oh, that's right, grocery stores have NO recycling responsibilities! They can throw away as many single use plastics into our full landfills, it's the customers who should be punished!
I worked at one, I know first hand!
It's ridiculous that employees who bag groceries are not taught how to utilize the plastic bags appropriately. It's not the customers fault that every employee at the grocery store shoves any little thing into a bag, I have told employees many a Time that certain items didn't need to go into a bag. Not every customer speaks up though.
There is a much bigger problem that we are missing the focus of, customers of a grocery store should not have to foot the bill, or worry about if they have enough reusable bags to get their groceries home.
The focus should be on having all of these large corporations recycle their single-use Plastics and stop making so much waste in our landfills!
Why has that never been an issue!?!?!!

Re: “Digital Divide

The placement of this cell tower is extremely negligent and ignorant on both the City of Bend and the Bend La Pine School District and it's board members. We unfortunately live in a world where we have this follow the herd mentality and we are not thinking for ourselves and buying into all this technology ( CELL TOWERS, WI-FI IN SCHOOLS, ADDICTIVE DEVICES, SMART METERS) without knowing what the long term effects are.

These are all elected officials that should be supporting our community and fighting this fight with our community members. You elected officials are supposed to be protecting our town and citizens and you are not doing your jobs. You are being complacent saying your hands are tied. This is plain laziness on your part. Get up off your butts and do your jobs!!! Fight the good fight.

I do not live in the Elk Meadow School district but I am a very concerned citizen and I attended and spoke at this meeting during public comment. There were two officials sitting up there working on their commuters while these people were talking. Completely, disrespectful!!

Everyone needs to wake up and take action. Ask yourself today, what can I do to help this situation and these parents and our most vulnerable population, our children. Come on people, don't just sit there complacent, letting Verizon get rich while they damage our children's health.

Re: “Digital Divide

The questions raised are legitimate. This organization of parents has collected over 1300 signatures to bolster its impressive organizing effort. I am reminded of the Stop the Drain campaign of 2012, which led to defeat of City Council members who supported what many considered to be the over-engineered, excessively expensive, environmentally destructive surface water project. The City's unwillingness to do anything at all to relieve the unease and fears of these families may, likewise, have political consequences. It doesn't help that City Council rules prevent Councilors from interacting with members of the public during public testimony. It creates the impression of a wall of stony, dismissive, impassive faces staring down from the dais.

Re: “Bend's Brothels: The Sin-Dustry That Built Our City

My parents, LeRoy & Donna Fassett bought The (Old) Superior Cafe in about 1953. It was a long narrow dark cafe that sat near the corner of Bond and Greenwood - across from Trailways Bus Depot. As far as I can remember there was a long counter of single seats and one row of booths. It was not a bar. The kitchen (grill) was behind the counter up front and people could watch food cooked from the window. There was an stair case in the back that went up to a small office where my mom did the books. The primary clients were railroad men (sP&S and NP)and bus riders.... Within two years (about 1955) they bought the building that housed The Bend Hotel and the restaurant adjoining it. They remodeled the restaurant in a major way and moved The Superior Cafe there. It did NOT serve liquor. My grandparents, Butch And Peggy Fassett moved their Owl Taxi Company to The Bend Hotel and operated both the taxi and hotel. Most of the rooms were used by railroad men on overnight layovers. Rooms were $1 -$2 a night. I helped my grandmother at the front desk and with cleaning rooms. There was a back staircase that was kept locked because it was unsafe. My parents owned The Superior Cafe for many years - until at least 1965. They sold it after they bought The Skyline Steak House on Wall Street. Only after that did it become
Original Joes. I am writing to correct some of the story printed above.
Thank you,
Sharon Fassett
