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.

As of Aug. 10, CTWS reported 212 positive COVID-19 cases and the majority of people who live on the reservation were still on a boil water notice.

The health department's announcement stated that new supplies are preferred so that the items do not have to be quarantined before distribution. In particular, the agency is looking for shampoo, castile soap, deodorant, non-alcoholic mouthwash, sunscreen and lotion, flashlights, baby supplies, cleaning supplies, clothes, camping equipment and water.

The Central Oregon Black Leaders Assembly and Bellatazza Coffee are also continuing a water donation drive: find more information on the COBLA Facebook page.
