  • Ashamed of The “R”?

    Has anyone else noticed that the jumbo political signs popping up around Central Oregon for Republican candidates (Tim Knopp, Jason Conger, Gene Whisnant, etc.) fail to mention their political affiliation? I would be naive to assume they are so ashamed of what the Republican party has become that they want to distance themselves from it.

  • Newberry Proposal Needs More Scrutiny

    As I write this, the Sept 13 issue of the Source lies to the left of my keyboard and the Sept. 3 issue of American Medical News (the newsletter of the American Medical Association), sits to the right.  The Source starts with a letter, "Help Stop the Fracking of the Newberry Volcano," which outlines possible side effects of fracking Newberry, including earthquakes, groundwater pollution via the release of naturally occurring elements, and groundwater pollution by the injection of chemicals designed to disrupt underground geology.

  • Time For A Real Health Care Alternative

    The Herbalist's medicine's can be a rich source of potential knowledge, but blindly trusting an herbalist’s recommendations for treatment can be risky. A physician's arsenal can also be a huge benefit to a patient, but just like the herbalist, blindly trusting a physician's suggestions  can have negative consequences. Regardless of perspective and opinion, people are likely to continue to incorporate medical solutions that are outside of pharmacology. Therefore it is very important for physicians and patients to become informed and participate in the collection and recording of scientific data specific to non-pharmaceutical treatments.

  • Holy Rollers: Portland’s Tango Alpha Tango is on the cusp of creating a rock revival

    If you’ve ever watched a high energy Southern Baptist preacher or even remember the Arsenio Hall character Reverend Brown from Coming to America, you’ve got an idea what to expect when Tango Alpha Tango lead singer Nathan Trueb takes to the rock-n-roll pulpit at Bend’s Fall Festival Oct. 6. Trueb will make you believe in something, namely the power of rock. He uses his marauding, almost Bob Dylan-like voice and restless stage presence to infuse TAT shows with a certain larger than life fearlessness. Backed by a group of unassuming rockers that include his wife Mirabai on bass guitar and his brother Aaron on keyboards, Trueb is clearly the lead performer here. It’s a skill that, early on, caught even him off guard.
