Gotta love The Source: today they have an article about the Bend Zine Library, something I had no idea existed—indeed, in the back of my mind I had thought with the rise of the web and blogging and easy self-publishing, zines had mostly disappeared. I’m glad to know I’m wrong! (For a good overview on… Read More Bend has a Zine Library!
It’s time for another “Best Of” list, this time from Central Oregon Magazine. They have their survey online for the Best of 2010 reader’s choice awards, and promise to run the results in their Winter (January) issue.

It’s for their annual Best of Bend issue that comes out in the summer (I think), which is fluff but fun to read. You have until May 7th to complete the survey, but why wait? Go on… Read More Vote on the Best of Bend for Bend Living
I just found out today that The Redmond Spokesman—Redmond’s local weekly newspaper—has a blog, where they seem to be posting both bullet-point summaries of their news and longer articles.
