  • The Man Behind the Mountain

    No photo attached. That is how he would have wanted it. For years, the Mt. Bachelor ski patrol's annual team photo featured a mysterious figure in the back row. He would turn his head as the camera clicked or he would wear a ski mask. But it's hard to hide when you are the biggest, strongest one in the group. He is Gus Johnson, a ski patrol legend of the Western United States. Last week, he passed away suddenly at the age of 60. Aside from his physical presence, he was incredibly intelligent and had a cutting sense of humor. Gus was the complete package. The result of his work was safe skiing and snowboarding for anyone who has been to Bachelor over the last 19 years. Overall, he patrolled for 30 years. His influence on Mt B will go on for years to come.

  • The Righteous Rangel Witch Hunt

    The following are some observations to the House Ethics Committee about the censure of Representative Charles Rangel, Democrat, Harlem, N.Y. House Ethics Committee....oxymoron. Y'all must be right proud of your courageous decision to censure Democrat Charles Rangel from Harlem for his outrageous disrespect for the laws and ethics of the House of Ill Repute.

  • Admit Defeat, Bend: It's time for a time out at Juniper Ridge

    While many citizens remain angry over the $4 million that Bend wasted on their defunct UGB expansion plan, and the $5 million that they squandered on the Bulletin property without first doing their homework, the city actually has much larger problems with their failed development at Juniper Ridge (JR). Bend's City Council has steadfastly maintained that numerous benefits would accrue to Central Oregon for nearly a decade at JR including 12,000 new jobs and $200,000,000 in profits from land sales, but absolutely none have materialized and the situation worsens every day.

  • Hey There, Winter Locavores: Year-round CSA delivers local foods to Central Oregon

    Ten years ago, the closest Central Oregonians could get to buying local, organic food in the winter was to drive three hours to greenhouses in the valley. Even just a year ago, locavores who lived for their summertime weekly CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) bounties were stuck buying veggies and meats from aisles under fluorescent lights.

  • Back To Earth: The new Marz Bistro struggles to find its footing

    It's tough not to have high expectations for a venture that combines an old favorite - in this case, Marz Bistro - with a prominent chef and restaurateur - Gavin McMichael of The Blacksmith and Bourbon Street. Marz, the 2008 winner of The Source Weekly's Restaurant of the Year, recently sold to McMichael and re-opened under the same name.

  • Wanted: One Sidekick

    I’m through using Craigslist, you guys! However, I’ll admit that Craigslist works just fine if you’re trying to sell a lawnmower but secretly want to be sodomized and hacked apart by an escaped serial killer.

    The restaurant casualties continue in downtown where longtime operator Peggy Falcaro announced on Monday that she has sold Giuseppe’s after a 20-plus-year run on Bond Street. Longtime locals remember Giuseppe’s as one of the places to enjoy a good meal and a glass of wine before the boom.

  • Spinning the Census Numbers to the Right

    The right-wing Oregon Catalyst site quotes a study by the right-wing Americans for Tax Reform organization supposedly proving – surprise, surprise! – that right-wing economic policies promote growth and prosperity. The ATR compared states that will gain congressional seats through reapportionment as the result of the 2010 census with those that will lose seats and found that the gainers “had significantly lower taxes, less government spending, and were more likely to have ‘Right to Work’ laws in place.

  • Terrorist Threat Gets Too Close for Comfort

    The threat of terrorism came home to Oregon Friday as the FBI foiled an alleged plot to detonate a huge bomb next to Portland’s Pioneer Square during the annual holiday tree-lighting festivities. Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a 19-year-old sometime engineering student at Oregon State University, allegedly intended to blow up a van packed with explosives while the square was thronged with some 25,000 spectators.
