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.

Doe Story Goes Deeper

Reader is disappointed by News in Briefs, 6-1.

I was disappointed in your report (on Cylvia Hayes, News in Briefs, 6-1), which read like it was written from a news release. No mention was made of Judge Frank Yraguen's investigation or the large amount of money spent on multiple investigations.

The following is information I read or heard on broadcast and print news.

Kulongoski asked Attorney General John Kroger to hire independent counsel to review the case (because he didn't like Kroger's analysis of the case ?). Kroger denied his department had a conflict and refused.

Kulongoski hired Judge Frank Yraguen to review the case.

Evidently Kulongoski didn't like Yraguen's analysis of the case and hired a (friendly?) Portland law firm.

(Did someone in the state government finally get the results they wanted after the third investigation?)
