Re: “Giving to Those Who Need It Most

Good to read! Charity donation always helps the needy people for the betterment of their life. Charity donation not only makes the receiver happy, but it also gives a sigh of relief and happiness to the sender. I am also planning to start making charity for helping those who are in need. Wile surfs online I came across this site http://www.mission-humanitaire-afrique.org/ which also accepts charity donation for helping the poor people in Africa, which is good for helping people at abroad too.

Re: “Speed Still Kills

I miss the days when rednecks blew themselves up in their own trailers instead of roaming the streets doing petty crimes to support superlabs in Mexico. I miss being able to buy my own allergy medicine without having to pay for a doctor visit and a prescription.

Re: “Through the Looking Glass: 20 Years of the Source Weekly

I remember for the longest time TS Weekly used the smallest size type possible for their stories, back in the day when they had a really small budget for printing. I could be wrong but I seem to recall some of the early editions were really, really small, 4 pages, maybe 8 at most. With type so small you really had to squint to read the articles, in order to get as many ads in as possible. Hey, you got to start somewhere, and even though TS Weekly is not printed in Oregon, they still have done a great job producing really good investigative journalism. The big breakthrough was when they hired H. Bruce Miller to do a weekly column, that gave them respectability as a news outlet. And now, look at what they have accomplished, I never read the bulletin for at least 20 years now, waaay too preachy to the right winger crowd, never once an editorial even acknowledging that left wingers and progressives are right once in a while, what a terrible paper. To see Eric what's his name Lucknens push the once proud Oregonian into its death spiral and then come scuttling back to the Bully to spew his right wing rants. Oh my. And on top of that they want you to pay money to read it! Thank you TS Weekly, you are a breath of fresh air (except for your endorsement of Knute, that is something you will regret bigly as time goes by. But, overall, well done, and happy 20th!

Re: “Go Outdoors, #LikeAGirl

Fantastic article! More like this, please.

And good on ya for recommending the P Style. Back in the Dark Ages, I tried all kinds of contraptions for a quick standing outdoor pee (medical "urinals" for ladies, a plastic cup device proffered by a Burning Man camp) and found nothing that worked. Years later P Style emerged, with hand-drawn graphics of a butch gal takin' a leak. Then I started seeing cutesy pink foldable ones at places like the AAA office (!!). I dutifully tried all of them. P Style definitely rules! I have two.

Re: “The Golden Dumpster: Inside Bend's freegan movement

Nice article, I love the sassiness of showing these are regular privileged college kids, not actual needy people. My favorite line: "Lumber Jack, a diver with an iPhone and a flawless smile, was the most vocal about not revealing this prized location"

Re: “Two of Bend's Most Gruesome Unsolved Crimes: Beware crazies in the wilderness

Many extremely ignorant comments here. I grew up in the bay area until I was 18 and then moved to Bend, been here since 1978/79. After a short stay in the military I came back to Bend and have been here ever since. The crime rates here are extremely low. So low in fact that when someone is killed its the talk of the town for weeks, even month's or years. As Bend grows and people from larger cities come here, the crime rates are increasing respectively, and its not the longtime locals who are committing the bulk of these crimes, its the newbs.
People choosing NY or Chicago over Bend Oregon for "peace of mind" or security reasons are laughable, at best, the sheer thought of it is absurd when one looks at the crime rates of these cities.
Bend Oregon rocks! After being in business here for over 20 years and putting my kid through school, I can safely say that I know and do business with all sorts of people, and most every last one of them are great, caring, friendly and honest human beings. I suggest that most of the commentators here are severely lacking in both the number of people known in and around Bend, and the long term history to be able to comment intelligently. Or... that they are the problem. Some people cannot and will not ever get along, no matter where they go, but especially in a smaller community where you have to actually communicate and see the same people from day to day. Yea, try again on Bend Oregon... An excellent place to live!

Re: “Where Old Soldiers Go to Roam

Thanks for highlighting this , and giving the ranch much deserved publicity!

As an avid supporter, veteran and volunteer , I couldn't be more excited about the ranch, and it's impact on the veteran community in Central Oregon.

I don't agree that veterans go there to 'roam' or that they are characterized as 'old'. I think 'hospice care' would have been a much better characterization of what the ranch is pursuing than 'adult foster care'.

That said , those things are terminology, , and it's clear the author meant no offense . Col Pam is a force of nature , and the extent to which she gives of herself and helps veterans all over
Cannot be overstated.

Re: “Two of Bend's Most Gruesome Unsolved Crimes: Beware crazies in the wilderness

"We" believe in Southern hospitality and making everyone feel welcome"? I also moved from the South to Oregon. My question to you is this, who is this we you are referring to? I've been to Louisiana and I've met people who are nice, but I've met people from Louisiana are exactly as you described "alot" of Oregonians to be. I also want to ask how many of the 3.4 Million people living in Oregon have you met? I'm guessing that you have a giant social group? You'd have to, or you would just be judging an entire state by the handful of people you met, which is a very hypocritical mindset. I live near the Rogue River and, given it is one of the largest tourist pulls in the state, the areas surrounding it are very people friendly. Yes there are ignorant and racist people in Oregon, as there are everywhere (even in Louisiana). Then again, you might also be one of those people.
