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.

The Source asks kids: where's the best place to trick or treat in Bend?



There will be plenty of candy around this Halloween, but where are the best spots to Trick or Treat? We hit the streets of downtown Bend and asked local kids, who were eager to share their secrets.

Sloan and Kellen Olson said, "The Old Mill! Riverfront and Federal!" You might see the pair on the streets dressed as a joker and a jester.

Charlie and Russelle Schumcher said, "NorthWest Crossing at the big circle! The houses are so close together." They're still debating costumes.

We also talked to the "birthday gang" gathered for Anna Millican's 10th birthday celebration, which included Reegan Todd, Ella Rosenzweig, Mckenna Vendenbos, Natalie Bryant and Scarlett Tucker. They said, "Tetherow, Shevlin Ridge, Shevlin Park and Awbrey Butte are the best places with the biggest candy bars!"
