Re: “123 Ramen Grand Opening

This is a great addition to the neighborhood. I love that your broth is rich but not too salty like some other places in town. The pickled veggies are golden!

Re: “Eyes on the Money

Roughly a quarter of the city's biennial budget is dedicated to necessary utility infrastructure construction and improvements, most of which are funded through low interest loans from state and federal agencies. Given the magnitude of this effort, the Source might consider giving it a bit more coverage.

Re: “Go Here: Summer Bike Events in Central Oregon

While not specific to the content of this article, I'm surprised that the Source doesn't cover BMX racing in Central Oregon. Six locals are heading to the BMX World Championships in July, including one racer who has qualified for the USA Olympic team. This seems a rather glaring blindspot on the part of your reporters.

Re: “Hazed and Confused

Sad that one of the better films of the year didn't last two weeks at the Regal.

Re: “Housing pressure

Bend's proposed UGB expansion was rejected by the state in 2010, not 2005 as indicated in the article.

Amendments to Bend's planning code-- as recommended by and/or implemented with the leadership of councilors Boddie and Campbell-- are in the long term more critical factors than the UGB expansion in addressing the city's affordable housing needs. SDC exemptions, inclusionary zoning, and zoning for higher density and true mixed-use development are sound strategies for addressing Bend's housing crunch. Our city council has been doing good work on this issue and I applaud them.

Re: “Side Notes 6/4-6/10

Did another rate hike go into effect this month? My bill just went up ten dollars and I use less than one half the 400 cubic feet cited in the base rate. (please don't post to the paper)

Re: “Robbing the Prince to Pay the Pauper

While I agree with the editors that it would be great to allocate funds from the Hotel Tax for other purposes, under state law 70% of hotel tax revenue must be applied towards tourist related adverstising or infrastucture. Currently the remaining 30% goes towards the city's general fund. Why would we want to increase the TRT if there is a statutory requirement that the majority of funds go towards promoting tourism? VisitBend is a big enough fiefdom aleady, thank you, and is in my view not the best use of local tax dollars. Although I'm sure the well-connected few that benefit from their patronage would feel otherwise.

Re: “Side Notes 5/7-5/14

Consider where much of the money from the city's hotel tax goes-- Visit Bend. Why not take half of the funds going to Visit Bend and apply them to transit? I believe that's a much better use of funds that would otherwise be spent on advertising for tourism. Folks around the country know what and where Bend is. Let's put money where it matters.
