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.

It may be spring, but Nordic ski enthusiasts have an opportunity to learn about the history of Nordic skiing in Central Oregon at the Deschutes County Historical Museum. This exhibits runs through November 2016.

The 1,200-square-foot interactive exhibit details the strong influence of the Scandinavian culture that pushed Central Oregon to the forefront of Nordic skiing in the early 1920s. It features oral histories from sons and daughters of ski pioneers, the history of Nordic skiing, as well as reproductions of past skiing equipment and clothing to present technology.

Artifacts for the exhibit have been gathered from Norway, Sweden and around the state. Museum admission is $5 for adults; $2 for ages 13 to 17; free for those under 13.
