Re: “Clothing Wars

If Under Armour is suffering losses because of a small company like Cascade Armory, they were already in trouble. Glad that I have never bought anything from UA! It's too expensive and THAT'S their problem!

Re: “Clothing Wars

As the parent of a young ninja warrior in training they just lost any business we would have ever given them. I guess they outta sue God too seeing as the Bible talks about putting on the Armor of God. Where is this nonsense going to stop. Big boots trying to stomp out the little ants that might get a crumb. What a joke!

Re: “Clothing Wars

This is all about Trump style aggressive business tactics. In no stretch of the imagination does Cascade Armory pose any form of financial threat to Under Armor. It is doubtful that they (Under Armor) can actually prevail. The words armor and armory are common usage in the English language. Under Armor is depending on the high cost of defending their cease and desist order will prevent further litigation. Similar tactics have been employed by Starbucks and Fresh Mex.
I have never bought any products from Under Armor and definitely never will. I would support and encourage a go fund me effort to raise defense funds for Cascade Armory.

Re: “Clothing Wars

Use to be a fan of Under Armour. I will not be buying from then again. These companies can't claim exclusive use of a common word. You would have to be an idiot to confuse Under Armour with Cascade Armory. I guess Under Armor thinks their customers are stupid. Stop bullying the little guys with frivolous lawsuits and scare tactics. Not cool.

Re: “Clothing Wars

Despicable. Knowing this will encourage me to spread the word not to purchase UA products.

Re: “Clothing Wars

This is horrible!! You would think Under Armour would give the little man a chance. It's all about lining the pockets of the big guy now though. I think I am most disgusted with going after the man starting the clothing line who was faith based for his 3 year old son.

Re: “Fight for Your Right to Party

"It's grown and evolved into a bar," the neighbor explained. "The main concern for the neighbors is we don't want an alcohol-fueled business in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Bend." How many breweries and pubs do we have again? And, how many are on wheels? This whole town is a neighborhood with an alcohol-fueled business in it. Enjoy the blowback of your tourism focused
gentrification, morons.

Re: “Dear Tenant, You Must Vacate the Premises

Something HAS to be done with this greed and housing market in Bend.. and in Oregon... and in the USA. It should be illegal to put someone out in a homeless camp just because they want to remodel and make more money. Especially when they have nowhere to go.
I'm looking for a house to buy now.. because in a few months my rent will be at the same price for a 2 bed 2 bath apartment 925 sq ft. as it will be for a mortgage on a 1150 sq ft 3 bed 2 bath house with garage and lawn. People need to wake up and put a stop to this and other things that are happening in our community

Re: “Clipping the Crow's Wings

After walking across the "Plaza" to visit Crows Feet one morning I was greeted by a vagrant who asked me to pee on him. I told David about it and he made the guy move on. So if you wonder why its hard for David to develop a lunch crowd on the plaza they should help him out by removing the vagrants. The City should enact an ordinance that does not allow vagrants to sit on the ground anywhere in downtown Bend. It works for Santa Cruz so why not here.

Re: “Clipping the Crow's Wings

This is another perfect example of how unfriendly the City of Bend actually is to small businesses. They pat themselves on the back all day long in public eye about their commitment to small business. Then use underhanded, back door methods to drive the entrepreneurs out of business. It's systematic and devious and there's a lot more going on than any of us know. Who is bought and sold? This business, it's owner and the employees have been a reputable establishment since conception. They have done nothing but positive for the community. This is yet another bad move by the "powers that be". I hope people care enough to stand and fight for this business.They truly deserve the support and would be sorely missed in an ever homogenizing downtown.

Re: “Clothing Wars

"A trademark owner can stop other businesses that sell the same product or service from using a confusingly similar trademark in a way that is likely to cause customer confusion about the source of the goods or services. Thats it. Thats all the power a trademark owner has. If there is no confusion, then there is no infringement."


Armory.... a place where arms and military equipment are stored especially : one used for training reserve military personnel.

Armour - any covering worn as a defense against weapons.
a suit of armor. /a metallic sheathing or protective covering, especially metal plates, used on warships, armored vehicles, airplanes, and fortifications.

Two different words actually. Greed, pure and simple on the part of Under Armour

Re: “Septic Shock

thanks for the article Brian Jennings. There seems to be some missing information because, as it stands, this sounds like some serious gauging by greedy contractors and possibly the city. Having been involved with other construction projects, this seems to be a relatively straight-forward project of ditch digging and laying of plastic pipe. These poor home owners are being mislead and I think the city should absolutely step in and make sure the contractors are charging a fair and competitive price. I think this is an outrage!

Re: “Septic Shock

$50,000 dollars to dig a trench 100 feet? The problem is in the cost more than in the law that forces the work. Maybe allow more competition in the business? Maybe give homeowners the option of excavating it themselves? I'm sorry but I just can't see why it would cost that much to dig a ditch and lay some pipe.

Re: “Home Distillers Duck the Law: Barriers to legal operations force booze makers to stay underground

This article is factually incorrect. Heads do not cause blindess or death, they cause massive hangovers. The thing that used to cause blindness when people distilled at home was the lead solder and car radiators people sometimes used to make their stills out of.
Please get your facts right.

Re: “Stand Down or Stand Your Ground?: Critics say self defense laws like Oregon’s and Florida’s go too far

Oregons laws are spot on. Dont fall for these stupid political scams. This "one in a million" story is just smoke and mirrors to distract your common sense.

Re: “Too Many Tourists?

We reached the tipping point years ago! No amount of tourist dollars are worth what Bend has turned into.
