Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
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.

This is in response to Kenneth Judkins letter in the Aug 20th issue. Kenneth, you question the citizenship of President Obama and cite the fact that his birth certificate says "certificate of live birth" instead of "birth certificate" as proof. You challenged us readers to look at our own birth certificates to clearly see that it would say "birth certificate" not "certificate of live birth". So I did just that. I gave birth to a little girl this January at St. Charles Medical Center, or so I thought. It turns out that my daughter also has a birth certificate that doesn't say "birth certificate" it says "CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH!" Just like Mr. Obama's birth certificate. Should I also question the citizenship of my daughter or should I take my head out of my ass and do some intelligent research and thinking before making serious accusations against another?
