Conservative Candidates are Stoking Needless Fear about the "Critical Race Theory" Boogeyman in Schools. That's Fake News.

Conservative Candidates are Stoking Needless Fear about the "Critical Race Theory" Boogeyman in Schools. That's Fake News.

A coordinated effort to push an anti-anti-racist agenda is happening all over the country—including Bend and Redmond
It seems the entire community is talking about the current school board elections for Bend-La Pine Schools—a strange turn for a May election, which oftentimes is barely a blip on voters' radars. While we have already commented on the disservice rendered to local voters when candidates opt not to engage in the non-partisan forums and interviews offered locally, it's become clear that there's something more concerning at work here.

Letters to the Editor 5/13/21

Private School, Readers Poll, Fore Sale and Seen at Pilot Butte
Editor's note: The Governor's announcement this week that counties with adult vaccination rates of over 65% would be able to see risk-level restrictions lifted was, as expected, like a weight lifted.

An Open Letter to Gov. Kate Brown, Requesting your vote and more
Editor's note: It happens every time: The Source Weekly staff and I spend countless hours poring over the listings for restaurants in Bend, Redmond, Sisters and beyond—and as a result, we get endlessly hungry to try all the places we'd forgotten about since the last time we put out a Restaurant Guide (or Happy Hour Guide, or, this year, a Takeout Guide).

Letters to the Editor

Congressional District 2 is a Huge Geographic Area. Break It Up, Already.

Leaders in Salem have promised a series of public meetings to present those plans, and each of us should care to attend
It's been expected for quite some time, but last week, it became official: Oregon is picking up a new seat in the U.S. House. Oregon narrowly missed adding a seat following the 2010 U.S. Census, so it comes as little surprise that we'd add one now, with our state continuing to be a place with significant in-migration.
