  • Kozak Is The Man For 54

    Do we want to be led down that same path that we seem to go each and every election year? We are bombarded by the media telling us whom the right candidate is for our best interests.

  • Howdy, Neighbors! New owners give Riverside Market a much-needed facelift

    Neighborhoods are defined not just by their residents, but the shops, cafes and markets that hold them together. Neighborhood businesses are a reflection of the hood's personality - they employ neighbors, act as meeting places, organize get-togethers and events. Such is the case with Riverside Market, the casual café and corner store between NW Congress Street and NW McCann Avenue in the historic mill-era neighborhood south of Drake Park. In the past, it's seen good times and bad times. At its best, it's been a meeting spot for bridge players and floaters stopping in for a beer after a day on the river. At its seediest, it's been a hangout spot for early-morning drunks and transients, with bathrooms used as makeshift bathhouses. But with its recent purchase by John and Melanie Gaipo, Riverside might have become the friendliest neighborhood market in Bend.

  • When Bryce Met Juli: The sum of Flipped's parts just doesn't add up

    Do you remember when you flipped? The time in your life when you stopped thinking boys had cooties and all you could think about was when that cute boy in your math class would finally make a move and kiss you? Rob Reiner's Flipped takes on the coming-of-age tale of first love, where two middle schoolers learn what it means to be head-over-heels.

  • Wanted: More Thumbs

    Sad to say, but “criticizing things” can be a real cutthroat business! If I’m not keeping up with the other TV and movie critics in the country, I could easily find myself at the bottom of a dumpster, licking cheese out of a discarded Dominos box.

  • Deb Yager: Six Song Austin Demo

    Deb Yager didn’t start playing guitar until she was in her mid 30s, but you wouldn’t know that by listening to the smartly crafted folk numbers on the six-song EP that she recorded in her former hometown of Austin, Texas.

  • Let's Get Volcanic: A day at the Newberry National Volcanic Monument and Derrick Cave

    A couple of weeks back, my good friend (and geologist) Al Waibel gave me a call. "Hey, Jim, how about joining a few friends and me Wednesday? We're going out to Newberry Monument and then Derrick Cave." Would I? If these people were friends of Al's, they were already friends of mine - we all just didn't know it. So, at the assigned time and place, we all met, shook hands and carpooled off to Newberry Monument, south of Bend.

  • Colorado Springs: an anomoly or model of the future?

    When I was a kid growing up in Colorado Springs, Colorado it was almost paradise. The town was small (some 29,000 inhabitants) with plenty of wide-open spaces surrounding a well laid out downtown grid, a wonderful parks system, great weather and plenty of outdoor recreational activities close by.

  • Boom Box: bringing down the fest volume

    Imagine my surprise when I sat in my living room a quarter mile from the heart of downtown this past Saturday night and could distinctly hear every note and every word of the fest (whichever one of the many this one was) music. The music was so clear it was if the performance stage was set up just down the street and the volume level equal to that of the garage band that occasionally practices across the street.

  • Help Local Musicians Replace Their Stolen Gear

    Earlier this summer at the West Wind Ranch Americana Music Festival a thief, who may or may not have been wearing a black mask and carrying a brown burlap sack with a green dollar sign on it, stole a bunch of gear from local musicians. The River Pigs' Scott Foxx and Thomas T (the later of whom also plays in Mosley Wotta) were the victim of the heist.

  • Bend Fall Festival Music Schedule

    The Bend Fall Festival is taking place today in downtown Bend and includes a strong lineup of almost all local performers, including another appearance by Sara Jackson-Holman and what's sure to be a rowdy set from Larry and His Flask. Headlining the main stage tonight is Bay Area all-female Led Zeppelin tribute band, Zepparella.

  • Sara Jackson-Holman Covers "Such Great Heights"

    Pestering rain showers didn't stop a sizable crowd from gathering down at Bend Fall Festival this weekend and those who were down there on Saturday afternoon caught this mind-blowing solo gig from Sara Jackson-Holman. Halfway through the set, Jackson-Holman knocked out a cover of "Such Great Heights" the Postal Service's mega hit from 2003.

  • Meet and See Atmosphere Tonight in Bend

    Atmopshere, one of the more intriguing acts in all of the hip-hop universe, is playing in Bend tonight. If you or any of your friends or loved ones are into indie rap music, you probably already knew this.

  • Kroger's Hoping to Let the Sun Shine In

    Oregon Attorney General John Kroger has published a revised, on-line version of the state Public Records and Meetings Manual that he says will help make state government more transparent. “Changes to the manual reflect new legislation, recent court decisions and a fresh look at previous interpretations of the law,” Kroger said in a news release issued today.

  • Study: Those "Overpaid" Public Employees Really Aren't

    A favorite tactic of conservatives these days is to bash public employees – especially those who belong to unions – as overpaid and underworked, stoking resentment among workers in the private sector whose pay and benefits don’t measure up. But a new study by the Economic Policy Institute blows a pretty big hole in the claim that public sector employees are overpaid.
