  • County Has Shirked Its Regulatory Responsibility

    I appreciated Ms. Marlowe's article on the illegal B&B situation in our community, and found it to be very fair to all parties.  I would just add a couple of items since I, too, live in the neighborhood highlighted. Of the seven home[owners] on the street involved, five of us have lived here 23-28 years and one has lived here since they built their house over five years ago.  Ms Malnik (the B&B owner) has lived here 4 months.  Before she bought the house, she announced her intention to open a B&B, and we neighbors wrote back to let her know we didn't want a business in our established neighborhood, and she should consider buying somewhere else so she wouldn't find herself encumbered by a property she couldn't use for a B&B.

  • NRA Boot is an Affront to Freedom

    You clowns are despicable. Saying that the National Rifle Association kills people is the most egregious effrontery I’ve read in a long time, and that includes the countless buffooneries the left propagates all the time. What’s worse, your comments show your total ignorance regarding the firearms issue, not to mention your illogic and lack of stats. Your whole Boot article is childish and a nonsensical screed. There is a good reason you boneheads are called the loony left and your reactionary response is what I would expect. You conveniently ignore that where there is easy access to concealed weapons permits gun violence goes down. Regarding gun control regulations you are right (even a blind chick gets a kernel now and then), regulations don’t equal confiscation. What you failed to mention is that regulation inevitably leads to confiscation or banning.

  • Drawing Conclusions: Art and conservation working together at Whychus Creek

    Arts Central of Bend provides "Art for All" and really means it. Just before the school year ended, art instructor, Kyla Schoessler—with the help of Laura Campbell of the Upper Deschutes River Watershed Council—put on a program for the Sisters Middle School that was nothing short of amazing. They designed an outstanding field guide to Whychus Creek using the students' art work. The results of these educational, conservation and art experiences will be on display in the community room of the Sisters Library for all of August, as part of the Friends of the Sisters Library (FOSL) Art Exhibit.

  • I am the Walrus

    Imagine listening to Penny Lane with a live trumpet section or Yesterday performed with an acoustic guitar and string quartet. Sound good in your head? Well it’s going to sound even better tonight at Bend High when The Sunriver Music Festival presents The Classical Mystery Tour: A Tribute to the Beatles.

  • Off Piste
  • Bust a Love Move Today

    Long before Gay A. Bradshaw (one of Oregon’s own) put a name on them, trans-species relationships have continued to baffle, challenge, and warm the hearts of non-human animals and humanimals alike.
  • The Wandering Eye
  • Moonshine Magic in Bend Still on the Down Low

    Get ready for our great close-up on the home distilling community out next week in our "Best of" issue. We interviewed a mixed bag of legal and anarchist distillers in Bend to find out why distilling is so very, very against the law in one's home.
