100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Avid Cider Company is branching out to a new product, using the same core ingredient featured in its ciders. Avid lauched Seven Peaks Hard Seltzer this fall, featuring alcohol derived from Northwest apples. The resulting flavor is a bit more apple-y than other seltzers you might have tried.

Flavors include Raspberry Cosmo, Mandarin Greyhound and Tropical Smash—each sweetened and colored with natural juices, and with cans featuring the seven peaks of Central Oregon. Check out Seven Peaks' Facebook page @sevenpeakshardseltzer for info on local athlete Emily Keddie's "Seven Peaks Challenge" achievement—in which she ascended all seven peaks (Broken Top, South, Middle and North Sisters, Mt. Washington, Three Finger Jack and Mt. Jefferson) before sipping a cold seltzer at the summit.
