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.

Rhubarb is that lovely, tart vegetable with notes of sour green apples that sings when you add sugar. Get in the kitchen now and start working on your best rhubarb dessert to be ready for the contest in June. Will you create a pie, tart or muffins? How about a fluffy meringue with rhubarb curd? You will be judged on taste, use of rhubarb, appearance and creativity and the top four desserts will win prizes. This sweet contest happens during the High Desert Rhubarb Festival in La Pine. It's Oregon's only rhubarb festival and a must attend for rhubarb lovers. At the event you can taste rhubarb laced treats including rhubarb wine and beer.
