We’re 100% local, and our coverage never comes with a paywall.

This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon.

We chatted with Hoppe Thursday at the opening of the show:

Source Weekly: How's it going?

Bill Hoppe: "I am just getting back from two weeks traveling in Europe. I'm sick, tired and I have never been better."

SW: Where do you get your inspiration?
BH: "I let the work find itself... You can't possibly know the result until you act it through."
