This story is brought to you by Bend’s only locally owned newspaper, and crafted by journalists who live in this community, right alongside you.
We’re 100% local, and our coverage never comes with a paywall.
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.
As you enjoy this story, we ask you kindly to consider supporting us at a time when local news is more important than ever.
Help us continue to bring you the stories of Central Oregonians affected by coronavirus, the stories of how our community
is adapting, and the accounts of how our governments and local businesses are responding to the crisis.

Flipping through Monday's edition of The Bulletin, it became clear that the readers of our daily paper are either a) quite old b) not especially great listeners or c) fans of the latest hearing assistance devices. In the "A" section of the paper alone, there were three full-page ads for hearing aids. Then, there was another half-pager in the Local section and another full-page in the Green portion of the paper. Either we totally missed out on marketing to a new Medicaid reimbursement program or The Bulletin is clearly appealing to a certain demographic that's more interested in orthopedic shoes than running shoes. If that's the case, might we suggest a few ideas for upcoming issues: a "How to Be Scared of Everything" section and the new weekly column "Get Those Kids off My Lawn."
While many of us are going to be slaving over stoves, stuffing, brining or the always fun deep-frying our butterball turkeys this Thursday, there are options for those who don't feel like sticking their hands in the cavity of a 20-pound bird or cutting up the neck to stew some gravy. For all of you who would rather have a skilled chef prepare your fixins, here's a list of restaurants serving Thanksgiving Dinner, courtesy of Visit Bend.
