Re: “Fur on Fir: A Celebration of Animals

Great event. Note that Fir Street Park is incorrectly located on this map.

Re: “Would you change your lawn into a native plant/pollinator garden?

Could the source please report on whether lawns really help guard against wildfire? Many in Central Oregon (outside the city) have big lawns allegedly for fire protection.

Re: “BODYMIND: Axe Those Allergies

I'm a pretty woo-woo person by nature and profession, but this sounds like dangerous advice.

Approaches like these of ten end up making chronic illness patients, including those with allergies, feel like they are being blamed for having an illness.

In my case, there is no trauma associated with my nut allergy. It started up after my pregnancy. Many people gain or lose allergies during pregnancy, when the body is altered in many ways.

Re: “Let's Talk About Lawns

I'd love to see more ideas along these lines, ongoing. Rocks, pavers, gravel, "steppable" small plants, natural landscaping. How about a regular column in The Source, on projects we can all do to improve our water consumption?

Why no a separate column on taking little environmental steps? There we could learn not to use so much plastic. Which would kinda defeat the AstroTurf idea.

Re: “The "Shoes" Protest Was About Something Not Happening in Bend. Is It a Frontload to a Bigger Fight?

Though I appreciate the thoroughness of the reporting and fact-checking, I'm not sure that this non-protest of something that isn't even happening really deserves such coverage. That's what these people want. They pretend to hate the media, but they want media coverage. Maybe we should starve them of it.

Also, someone in the comments is trying to claim that leaving shoes out has *always* been a form of protest. Uhhh, sure. Where is your source, your data, your historical accuracy? Can someone at The Source Weekly offer a source, data, history to counter that claim?

Re: “The Artist Behind the Mural

Thank you for publishing this beautiful piece, celebrating the beautiful work of a beautiful person.

As a professional writer and editor of over 30 years, I appreciate that the writer chose to focus on the art. T-man's comment suggests that perhaps he would prefer a schlocky cancer-pity profile.

Unlike him, I don't find this article "sterile" in the least. Here the writer treated the artist—and what may be her last work—with dignity and respect. When I got to the end, my eyes welled up with tears.

I do not know the artist or the writer, incidentally. I just happened to pick up a print issue of The Source at a cafe.
