Keep Digging Around | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

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 begin with a question regarding the Constitution and the Declaration. My friend Carlos Wysling, with his great political articles, notes: African [Americans] were protected under these two documents.

I begin with a question regarding the Constitution and the Declaration. My friend Carlos Wysling, with his great political articles, notes: African [Americans] were protected under these two documents. Further study will show these documents were written long before the 13 colonies would consider anybody but a white man with land [a person], so women and Africans did not exist.

Next, Bravo to H. Bruce Miller for his insight into Bend housing - "Bend Over" - great title. It tells the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Listen to Mr. Miller will you all!!!


And thirdly, Mary Sojourner - where is her writing? She has stories to tell about Dudley's Bookshop Café. Come to think of it, why isn't there an article in the Source about the state of Dudley's on Minnesota Street?

Thanks for all you all do.
