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 would like to respectfully respond to Kenneth Judkins' "respectful" presentation of his complaints against the Source's H. Bruce Miller. Mr. Judkins does not "believe" Obama was born in Hawaii because he claims the President presented a certificate of live birth and not a birth certificate. He advised all of us to examine our birth certificates and lo and behold mine says "certificate of live birth." Therefore, according to Mr. Judkins, I have lived for seventy years without realizing I am not a U.S. citizen, even though my certificate of live birth documents my being born in the state of Montana, which, by the way, joined the Union sixty years before Hawaii did.

Mr. Judkins, what you "believe" is in no way related to fact. Anyone can believe anything because it is opinion. Facts are empirical. Some people "believe" the earth is flat, but that doesn't make it so. By now surely you have seen, read or checked the various websites and myriad other sources that have authenticated Obama's Hawaiian birth unless you have no access to the outside media world and have been living under a rock.

As for the horrible things Obama is up to that are undermining our Constitution and leading the country to perdition, you cite the various Czars he has appointed and relocating (then reversed the relocation) of the census from commerce to the White House. Alors!! Man the barricades!!! Why couldn't he be a normal president like Bush who ginned up a war under fraudulent pretenses that has, to date, killed hundreds of thousands, cost trillions and left the U.S. Economy on the brink of a Depression. And the Czars and the census have outraged you? You have too much time on your hands. I respectfully suggest you and your wife Cassandra sit down in a quiet corner, cross your legs and contemplate your navels before you have a stroke.
