Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

A Bend Photographer's Mission to Document Resiliency, from the Sidewalk

*New Images! - Locals share their stories and pose for photos during the pandemic


Many family owned businesses are torn between doing what's right and doing what's necessary to keep their business from flatlining. Most are trying to find the balance between keeping their business somewhat active and closing down. This is the where the challenge lies.

Bend photographer Megan Baker reached out to a few families and small businesses to see how coronavirus pandemic is affecting their lives. She is going to share a little bit from each session she's done, and will continue to safely document the sessions moving forward. Feel free to send her an email.
