  • All the World's a Stage

    The World Cup started in... Bend. Yes, downtown Bend and more precisely at Cafe Sintra on June 11th where a room full of fan/customers braved the 7 a.m. chill to watch the opening match.

  • Don't Trash Westside

    Recycling Deschutes County leaders have shown their complete lack of environmental responsibility when they recently announced that they would be shutting down the West Bend - Simpson Road recycling depot on July 31st due to revenue/funding shortfalls.

  • A Dead Goose Isn't A Good Goose

    I was in my local paint store recently and I heard a woman very crassly say, "It's too bad the city didn't know those goose nests were in that little pond -- they would have poisoned them all." When she left, the nice gentleman behind the counter assured me the city did not poison geese. Sadly he was wrong. I saw the geese in the park being rounded up the day they were killed. I didn't know what was happening, otherwise I would have tried to stop it.

  • Freedom: wild riders, impatient driver

    After a Fourth of July morning mountain bike ride a friend and I drove from the Skyliner's trailhead to Bend Brewing for a beer. Beer imbibed, we got in the car and headed east on Oregon Street only to encounter a huge mob of bicyclists filling the entire width and length of Bond Street.

Lily Raff, whose column will appear twice a week, spent six years as a reporter for The Bulletin and recently completed a prestigious Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellowship at the University of Michigan.

  • Walden's Shifty Stand on Jobless Benefits

    Chuck Sheketoff of the Oregon Center for Public Policy put an amusing post up on Blue Oregon today twitting Greg Walden for his somewhat inconsistent stance on unemployment benefits. “Remarkably, Congress went on a July 4th vacation unable to muster the votes necessary to extend unemployment insurance benefits,” Sheketoff writes.
