Born in the U.S.A. | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

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.

Born in the U.S.A.

In reply to last week's letter from Kenneth Judkins about whether President Obama actually was born in the United States:

Mr. Judkins is placing too much meaning on specific wording in stating "certificate of live birth" is suspicious. My Oregon birth certificate from 1956 specifically states "Standard Certificate of Live Birth."

Each of us may or not may agree with the actions of Obama (I don't agree with everything and I'm a lifelong Democrat), but please, let's end these conspiracy theories about his U.S. citizenship. If he wasn't born in the U.S., don't you think that would have come out before the election?
