Re: “Color class at Bend Art & Bend Burlesque

I want to mention the work of Gabino Amaya Cacho. Do not you think creative and attractive abstract pointillism? Like all the abstract, it is you who give meaning to the work; Everyone sees something different, it is a way to share the imagination and discover the similarities and differences that each person has. Take a time, it is very original what this Spanish painter does

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: “Remembering Deshaun

Thanks for your comments, Crystal, and we have to agree about Alex's comments. While we could speculate whether the color of Deshuan's skin led to him being targeted by other kids, this was a story about bullying and its effect, which in this case was suicide. Every kid who commits suicide is the "face" of suicide. Did you want us to go seek out a farmer, just to prove your point? Suicide is heartbreaking, no matter who experiences it.

Re: “Bike Skills are Life Skills

Re: “Remembering Deshaun

Deshauns was my nephews cousin on his dads side, I personally only meant this young man a couple times, but his death was and still is very closely felt throughout my whole family, that being said, I am the program director of a new youth ministry here in Central Oregon, our ministry focuses on high risk youth, mostly in the system but I feel God tugging on me to help in this area, we are working on getting a mentoring program up and going and I think kids struggling with depression and/or suicide, would fit well with such a program, if there is any organization out there that can use a Christian presence or might have kids in need of a strong role model in their lives, I would love the opportunity to get together with them and discuss partnering with them to help such youth. We have several churches in the area ready to provide mentors to any kids we can find that would be in need of such.
I look forward to hearing from anyone who might be interested. My name is Jonathan Van Vliet and here is my contact information, email jonathan@centraloregonyfc.org, phone number 5419485592 and our Facebook page is @coyfcjjm I can be reached at any of these.

We are praying for and seeking out lost youth daily and hope to be nothing but a positive influence in their lives through our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

Re: “Remembering Deshaun

Hey Alex. Great job in devaluing the kids life since "young blacks are hardly the face of the suicide epidemic". This article isn't posted because the boy is not white. The article is posted because bullying is an issue of all races, sizes and colors and most adults seem to just keep kicking the issue down the road. Maybe next time just post your facts on your own social media page to raise awareness and not on an article trying to shed light on this particular humans suicide. It is not a color, race, boy/girl, problem it is a human problem. Humans not respecting humans. It is a let's ignore the uncomfortable problem. It is a let's not talk about it until it's too late and another innocent teenager takes their own life problem.

Re: “Remembering Deshaun

Touching. But young blacks are hardly the face of a suicide epidemic.

The group that is suffering the most are rural farmers. The suicide rate pales even veterans. But nobody really cares about those two groups.

Because they are overwhelmingly White.

Re: “Remembering Deshaun

Appreciate your comments, Nathan. There are a lot of layers here and were glad we could tell this story to get this conversation going. Deshaun deserves that.

Re: “Remembering Deshaun

Thank you, thank you, thank you for writing this. The story hasn't been even a blip on the radar since it happened, which speaks volumes. This is an issue of bullying, much more so than just an issue of depression. As a person of color whose background has been working with adolescents my entire professional life, I cannot help but wonder if, by saying labeling it "depression," that we are avoiding dialogue on a much larger issue. What I see happening is the maintenance of a very negative status quo here in Bend. If we are to move forward and upward as a community, we cannot allow this incident to be swept under the rug. We are harboring bullys instead of calling them out. Even Deshauns comments indicate that he thought these bullys would be brought to justice once he was gone, yet they seem to be protected by the silence of others. The privilege of a bully being able to hide in plain sight is astonishing, and reminiscent of something one would see if the South during the 60s. But this is Bend, in 2018. People, especially our youth, need to speak up. I think we need to take a good look at ourselves in the mirror and ask, Who do we want to become? What do we want to be known for?

Re: “504 Lot Subdivision Planned for Redmond

Peter -- this is a column on real estate, for which we enlist the help of local experts. If you have expertise in this area, you're welcome to submit stories, too.

Re: “504 Lot Subdivision Planned for Redmond

Why is a 'principal broker' writing a story for the Source? I love how this guy is a fan of 'government moving forward to help alleviate our housing crisis'. Yeah OK. Isn't that a euphemism for saying development shouldn't pay for itself? It's the classic hypocrisy: man we love government when it picks up the tab for private interests but drown it in the bathtub when it moves to help the public. Come on, Source. Ax this bozo and bring on a high schooler instead.

Re: “Can Cannabis Make People Sick?

The classic features of CHS are the following:

Chronic, heavy use of cannabis;
Recurrent episodes of severe nausea and intractable vomiting;
Abdominal pain;
Temporary relief of symptoms by taking a hot bath or shower; and
Resolution of the problem when cannabis use is stopped.

Is It Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome?

Patient Presents with Nausea & Vomiting

1) Does the signs and symptoms suggest a sever underlying medical condition?
Yes -Consider conditions other than CHS
NO - proceed to 2

2) Do symptoms improve while taking a hot shower or bath?
NO- Consider conditions other than CHS
YES- proceed to 3

3) Does the patient state he or she currently uses cannabis daily or almost daily, and has done so for at least the past year?
No- Check Urine drug screen for THC
Yes- Proceed to 4

4)Does the patient have signs & symptoms of volume depletion?
Yes - Provide hydration, cessation counseling, resources & follow-up
No - proceed to 5

5) Do the symptoms improve with hydration and cannabis cessation?
Yes- Continue counseling and follow-up
No - proceed to 6

6). Is the patient still using cannabis?
Yes- promote hydration and consider IV hydration

NO- Consider conditions other than CHS

Finally If Doctors can't help you consider Traditional Chinese Medicine, Herbs & Acupuncture...

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.

Re: “Fade to Black

The one take away I have from this story is not about mixing booze and cannabis - although that isn't a good idea in general - is the fact that you made super strong edibles. Edibles that are given as gifts should be in the 5-10mg range. People always say they will only eat half of a cookie, brownie, etc., but they never do. Giving the gift of low dose edibles takes away the risk of getting too high. It doesn't remove it completely but at least you are preventing a situation like your friends experienced. I can't tell you how many times I have heard someone tell me they don't want to try edibles because of a bad experience and that gives edibles a stigma it doesn't deserve. Edibles are a wonderful way to receive the benefits of cannabis without smoking. I hope the next time you make edibles, you work on your recipe to create low dose enjoyable edibles.
