This week's number: $16 Million 

The amount of money that the City of Bend is seeking in earmarks from the federal government. Chided in the past for not seeking government handouts, the city is asking Oregon's congressional delegation to help the city fund federally mandated upgrades to its drinking water system and its sidewalks, many of which have been found to be inadequate under the American's with Disabilities. The city is also seeking $750,000 to help pay for its long discussed dredging project on Mirror Pond and funding for an "applied research center" to help incubate high-tech business here.

Mmmm. Is that pork we smell?

For all of you who would rather have a skilled chef prepare your fixins, here's a list of restaurants serving Thanksgiving Dinner, courtesy of Visit Bend.
