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

I would be a little hesitate eating food that was near or in a dumpster. However, if the alternative is to starve than you do what you have to do. If I would have to resort to this, I would rather look through roll off dumpsters in my local area to find things to sell on Ebay and Facebook Market Place and use the money to buy safe food. Just my opinion mind you.

Polly, you may not find the term demeaning and that's fine. But you don't represent everyone who suffers from this illness or any other disability. I guarantee you that some do find it offensive and their opinions are certainly as valid as yours. --Michael Funke

Re: “Bucket List: Tour with Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship and the Commodores

I don't think the word "schizoclectic" demeans anyone. I'm bipolar, manic depressive, and people use those words frequently to describe things (or emotions) that vary from extreme to extreme. I fail to see how that somehow insults me, and I fail to see how "schizoclectic" harms those with schizophrenia.

The root of "schizo" is "skei" and it means to cut, separate, divide, part, split. Schizophrenics do not have a monopoly on using "skei" or "schizo" in language.

Re: “Bucket List: Tour with Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship and the Commodores

As a fellow community radio volunteer here in Central Oregon I appreciate the eclectic mix of music this station offers. But, I find the term "schizoclectic" to be offensive and demeaning to people who suffer from schizophrenia. What is so hip about using language that mocks people with illnesses, mental disorders, and disabilities? Full disclosure: I am a volunteer at KPOV, where we value "healthy individuals and community" (http://kpov.org/mission-and-history). --Michael Funke

Re: “A Community Thread: Dorothy West

Something about Central Oregon makes people write about "Community"! I read another one in the Nugget Newspaper this week.

Re: “Sweating It Out: Detoxifying my beer-soaked body and mind in a traditional sweat lodge

I do not recommend participating in sweats run by non-indigenous people. They can be dangerous if not done properly.

Re: “That Time Bend Got an In-N-Out... Not

Gross. In N Out gets their meat from one of the biggest factory farms in the US, Harris Ranch Beef. In N Out is the complete opposite of the conscious consumption model.

Re: “Quite Possibly the Strangest List Bend Has Made It On

I ride a bike in Bend or work outside, year round. We rarely have days that don't break freezing.

Re: “Quite Possibly the Strangest List Bend Has Made It On

I've lived in Bend, Minnesota and Park City Utah, all for years. Of the three, Bend is by far the mildest winter. Bend is the only one that I had air conditioning in my house.

Re: “Quite Possibly the Strangest List Bend Has Made It On

Negative press could be good for Bend. Maybe help the people here get over themselves just a little bit.

Re: “Our Own Airing of Grievances

Alison - Thanks for your comment. This is far from a comprehensive list of local illsjust a few hand-picked pet peeves! Yours is annoying too, no doubt...

Re: “Our Own Airing of Grievances

Re: picking up after dogs. You imply the major issue is that people use a bag but then leave it behind. This is our third winter being park hosts in Bend (first at Pilot Butte and second and third at Tumalo State Park). We are horrified at the number of people who do not pick up at all! My major chore as park host turns out to be picking up after other people's dogs - it is beyond my comprehension why people think it's my job to pick up after their dog, or why they think all the other park visitors want to see piles of dog poop lying around, much less step in it!

THIS IS A GOOD LIST BUT YOU SHOULD TALK ABOUT HOW PEOPLE ARE OK WITH DRINKING BUT NOT WITH SMOKING STILL.

Re: “A 'Miracle' remake

Lucky me! I attended the preview performance last evening. As a child growing up in the 40s radio played a huge role in my life. Cast, directors, crew did an amazing job. I could visualize the story unfolding in front of me and it was a delightful experience! Kudos to all.
