Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

So there's $536MM of federal funds and another $550MM in "non-federal funds." Why do you hoist the canard that this only costs $536MM? What are the other non-federal funds? Where does this other money come from? Who pays that price tag? I can guess and I know I'll be right.

So for a total of about $1.1 Billion, we get 4,600 jobs. That's only $239,000 per job. Another great lib idea. Sounds like the good deal we got from Solyndra and the other bogus green energy jobs.

It was Thatcher (I think)that said, "the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of someone else's money."

"...remarkable example of widely divergent interests coming together to compromise for the common good."

Exactly why it most likely will not make it through Congress."
