Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

In reply to: Shake It Up: New council has a mandate (News 11/15)

It would be nice if the Source were to beef up its council coverage and the Bulletin to cover it at all the way a daily paper should. What's up with that paper anyway? I am a newcomer to these parts and NEVER have I seen such a pitiful excuse of a paper!

Let's start by placing the blame for the legal stalemate on the water project on city staff, who advised council that the legal challenges had no merit and would be dismissed.

In reply to: Can It! C.O. brewers finally catch up with the Bend lifestyle and the canned beer revolution

I don't see how you can write that with a straight face. Beer ALWAYS tastes from the tap. If that is not available, then the BOTTLE is the only tasty alternative. Cans are for Old Milwaukee and other swills favored by drunks. Cheaper for the brewery is not good for the drinker. If I wanted Bud, I'd buy a can. Boo.

In reply to: New Green Bike Lanes in Bend! (Bent Blog, 11/7)

Totally Excellent! The cost of these bike friendly road markings is a drop in the dollar bucket compared to the cost of one new roundabout and will most likely reduce car/bicyclist conflict than multimillion dollar per mile new roads to nowhere. Keep up the good work ODOT!
