  • For Bend City Council: Mark Capell

    t’s not the money, or the free food (yes councilors are still provided meals before their meetings) and it certainly isn’t the prestige that attracts people to the job of city councilor.

    Measure 71 Would have Oregon legislators convene annually each year to tend to the state's business, as opposed to every other year. - Yes.

  • Homebrew Rules Defy Common Sense

    After reading last week's Opinion-The Mailbox "The OLCC Still Doesn't Get It," I felt compelled to chime in on a related issue. As the Source printed several months ago, the Oregon home brewers are having their freedoms trampled on due to a recent OLCC/OR DOJ interpretation of an archaic liquor law. This has effectively forced Oregon's home brewers (and vintners) to keep their creations locked into the confines of their own households, with any off premise travel being prohibited, and punishable as a misdemeanor.

  • Texas Crack Was Ignorant

    As a New Yorker, who has lived in Texas for many years and then moved to Bend two years ago...I found Jim Anderson’s little comment (The Natural World, 9-29) about Texas offensive. It certainly had nothing to do with your subject matter.

  • Give Drag A Chance

    I have read the lengthy letter of concern from Lisa Deanne Carlson, and I'm sorry, but as an entertainer and self-titled DRAG QUEEN, I don't see how my lifestyle and struggles, obstacles and challenges adversely affect hers, and I surely would never ask her or the Trans Community to cease doing what they do because it affected me or my journey, which it does not.

  • A Weekend at the Movies: BendFilm returns for a seventh year with a wide-reaching slate of films

    It might be hard for some longtime Bendites to believe, but BendFilm is now in it's seventh year and has long since shed its "new festival" tag, solidifying a reputation among filmmakers and cinema fans for high-caliber shorts, features, animation and documentaries. Once again, the festival will spread throughout town, as well as all the way to Sisters, showing films at the Regal Old Mill, the Tower Theatre, McMenamins Old St. Francis School and, new this year, the Oxford Hotel.

  • Not Your Grandmother's Supper Club: Local chef holds monthly dinners that travel the culinary spectrum

    When I heard that the Jackalope Grill, the well-respected fine-dining restaurant, was holding monthly "supper clubs," I immediately thought of the evening-long affairs my grandmother attended - which, I hear, were much more about the gossip than the food itself. The term "supper club" refers to a trend, popularized largely in the Midwest beginning in the 1930s and '40s and continuing through the 1970s. More than just restaurants, supper clubs served as destinations for patrons who would spend an entire evening socializing and dining on classic American fare, including steaks and chops. Recently, the term has taken on a more food-centric meaning, with chefs holding modern fixed-price, fixed-menu "supper clubs" in establishments across the U.S. and Europe.

  • Jäger Shots for 21-Year-Olds Everywhere!

    The 21st birthday is the only occasion when even teetotalers hand their kids a 50-dollar bill and tell them to have the time of their lives. It's a day that most 21-year-olds have only a vague memory of, usually only because of a faint facial scar or a fake tooth they acquired during the celebration. It is the last rite of passage for adults in this country and definitely the most celebrated. Now you can drive, vote and drink in a bar. The freshly minted 21-year-old is fearless, with bright eyes and a shit-eating grin that screams: "I'm 21 and ready to take over the world!"

  • Vampires Still Need Permission: Let Me In stays reverent to the original, and that's the problem

    In Let Me In, we have a barely rewritten version of the Swedish language film from barely two years ago, with plenty of the same scenes and dialogue. WTF? This new version is scripted and helmed by Matt Reeves, who was responsible for the shakiest camera award with the unforgettable Cloverfield, and swaps Sweden for a snowy New Mexico and shifts the time back to 1983, which is actually semi-genius because we get to listen to a bunch of classic rock songs by David Bowie, Blue Oyster Cult and Greg Khin.

  • My Multiple Wives

    There is a case to be made for and against polygamy. THE CASE FOR: (1) Sex. Duh. And lots of it. Say you decided to have 24 wives instead of one: Now, I’m no “arithmetician,” but if I’m not mistaken, 24 wives = 24 times the sex.

  • Paddling Happily to Mediocrity

    Steve Duin’s column about Greg Oden in The Oregonian last week is going to make a lot of Oregonians mad – and not just Greg Oden fans. Oden, you may recall, is the center who was acquired as a first-round draft pick with much fanfare (and a great many dollars) by the Portland Trail Blazers back in 2007.

  • Ducks Athletics Takes a Big Bite of Cash

    The Oregonian’s Rachel Bachman has written an investigative report that ought to make even the most diehard supporters of the green and gold see red. It seems the University of Oregon athletic department’s claim that it’s financially self-sufficient is a few yards shy of the truth.
