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!

Re: “Our Own Airing of Grievances

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.

Re: “Appropriation vs. Appreciation

Cultural appropriation exists in many forms, particularly in Bend. Opening a ramen restaurant and turning a dish with a serious history into hipster b.s., with zero respect for authenticity or ramen tradition is more than sad, it's insulting. No self-respecting asian would eat there. This place in particular place serves bad food and profits off another cultural food fad. As bad or worse, asian "dumplings" are supposedly Bend's favorite food cart...except they're NOT dumplings. They're called "bao" get your basic facts straight. I wouldn't feed those things to my dog. He might choke on them.

You can serve "ethnic" food and treat it with authenticity and respect, it's totally possible, but these places don't bother.

And then the're the booty-shakin' "yoga" studio....so much for a 5,000-year-old meditative and spiritual practice...you can rock out to an MGMT dance remix.

You can just add all this to the not-so-subtle racism that thrives in Bend. How many times have I seen someone dress in blackface, as a slant-eyed Asian in a cone hat, or as a poncho and sonbrero-wearing Mexican at Mt. Bachelor's pond-skimming contest? too many.

(and if your reply is "don't be so sensitive" or "it's just a joke", that's a something we only hear after someone says or does something racist, sexist, or homophobic)

And remember way back when, when the Source did one of it's person-on-the street surveys? In 2005 or maybe 2006? And asked 3 or 4 white people if they thought racism was still an issue in America? oops. forgot to ask people of color. good job.

Bend is like much of the US, i not as progressive and liberal as it thinks it is.

Re: “Choose Your Freedom Ride

It was almost spotless because people volunteered and cleaned up the trash. As one of those people, I was disappointed by how much glitter and trash the riders left behind.

The sad part of America today is all the haters on the left.

Nasty, hate filled Democrats and mainstream media.

Re: “Fancy Cowboy Coffee

Decent article on the pour over brewing method, but has absolutely nothing to do with "cowboy coffee," which is a rather specific, completely different, brewing method...Just sayin....

Re: “What is Xeriscaping?

We really only have about 3 months of the year where lawn watering is even necessary. Xeriscaping probably isn't going to take off here like it understandably has in places like Southern California. And understandably so with our abysmally short growing season.
