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.

I think that Bruce Miller should explore the entire Oregon Coast before he forms an opinion. The Oregon Coast has one of the most different forms of landscapes of any coastlines in the world. Every dune, lake, river, and mountain is different. Lincoln City is the ugliest of all. Lincoln City was over-developed by the same type that over-developed this area. As far as weather, he should talk to an Oregonian to find out when are the best seasons to visit the coast. As far as Oregon is concerned, we don't have the biggest of everything, but we have the biggest variety of landscape of any state. He should feel lucky that he lives within 5 hours of all of it. I am always finding beautiful spots in this state that I've never seen before. Nobody asked you to move here Bruce, and I'm sure nobody will shed any tears when you leave.
