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.

A big thanks to everyone that bid on items in our recently concluded Charity Auction and to all of our business and community partners that donated goods and services to this year's fundraiser. Thanks to you, we managed to raise more than $5,500 for our charity partner, the Family Access Network. It's money that will help support programs that keep kids in school by giving students and families the basic tools that they need, including food, shelter and a stable home life.

Managing the charity auction is no small feat and a big salute goes out to our office manager Susanne Flynn, who did much of the heavy lifting, literally and figuratively, for this year's auction and she deserves special recognition. May you never spend another hour of your life on hold with eBay, Susanne. In all seriousness, the auction is a rather monumental undertaking for our small staff. But it's an important way for us, and our partners, to give back to the community. And in this time of increased need, particularly around the Holidays, we think it's a good use of our time and yours. Thanks for making it a success.
