This Land Is My Land | 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.

This Land Is My Land

Can anyone tell me who that "IDIOT" is who's been on TV and going around the state telling everyone how wonderful Bend is and come on, move right in, we want more people here?

Well I got to tell you, I've been here since 1954 and I promise you another person moving into Bend will not, cannot, make this place a better city to live in. I sure as Hell don't want another neighbor crowding me. Bend used to be a great place until Mt. Bachelor and the Chamber of Horrors, ah, Commerce started advertising "Bend for Sale." It's gone downhill since. If companies want to relocate here and bring jobs, I've got no problem. But Bend's already full up. We don't want any more people here. I guess I'll have to get elected to City Hall. Someone needs to kick a little "Johnny-come-lately ass!" around here.

Come on old timers it's time to take back our town before it's too late. Will you help me? - Name withheld upon request.
