  • Not So Neighborly: ADA flap renews simmering civic sibling rivalry

    It's no secret that its neighbor to the south overshadows Central Oregon's second largest city. It's a rivalry that dates back almost 100 years to 1916 when Bend bested Redmond in a contest to see which city would become the county seat in the newly formed Deschutes County. And so it has gone for a century. Bend got the massive sawmills. Redmond got potato farms. While Bend grew into the commercial center of Central Oregon, Redmond developed a reputation as a nice bedroom community with a bearable commute.

  • Pregnant Man Is Profile in Courage

    Letter of the Week  In reaction now to the news about Thomas Beatie, the pregnant man in Bend, I offer some thoughts that have come out of conversations I've had over the last few weeks. It doesn't matter how you feel about the issues of gender, sexuality and fertility, but I respect the Beaties' courage to stand up and put themselves and their lives in the spotlight. People have wondered why they are doing it. Why? Because! Because nothing will ever change, wrongs will not be righted, until someone has the courage to be out there in the open and help clear the way for others.

  • Shaken and Up: Bendistillery Martini Bar and Tasting Room (AKA: The Martini Bar)

    As I sit at my little round table at the Martini Bar waiting for the rest of my party, my cell phone rings. My friends are at the Old Mill Martini Bar. "Aren't we eating dinner?" they ask. "Do they even serve food at the Downtown Martini Bar?" Like many other diners, my friends didn't know that behind Bendistillery's velvet curtain sits a tiny kitchen from which 16 different dishes appear. This is a common misperception about downtown's spot for locally brewed spirits and custom crafted adult beverages.

    Breaking Up Is Hard To DoGetting down on Gray Butte By now every road bike geek in America is in a tizzy about the lawsuit- countersuit action between Greg Lemond and bicycle maker Trek. The situation is as exciting for rabid roadies as those Hollywood star split-ups are for celebrity worshipers. For those of you who aren't in the know, here's how it all came down. On March 20, former Tour de France winner, and American cycling legend, Greg Lemond filed a 41-page lawsuit against bicycle maker Trek claiming, in essence, that Trek wasn't paying attention to the Lemond bike line. The suit can be read online at www.velonews.com. Trek, which has manufactured the Lemond line of road bikes since 1995 and built it into a $15 million business, struck back with a counter-suit on April 8.
