Here’s some stuff you might like.
Business: The median price for homes sold in Bend in April hit an all-time high of $463,000, which is bad news for people looking to buy their first home in Bend, good news for people looking to sell their last home in Bend, and mildly interesting for most of the rest of us.
Law: Consider the following allegations: (1) pot farm outside of Prineville, (2) a polyamorous (two women one dude) relationship, and (3) a criminal charge of slavery (!). New AMC drama or actual pending case in Deschutes County Circuit Court?
Politics: Last week’s BBR was devoted almost entirely to the big new business tax before the Oregon Senate (with some bonus Rajneeshee fashion reminiscence). If you’re interested in reading more about the tax, check out this op-ed I wrote for the Bend Bulletin. If you’re tired of taxes and prefer guidance on how to create a wardrobe based upon the Rajneeshee look, go here instead.
Fun: You guys, Robert Plant is coming to Bend October 3. Tickets went on sale this (Friday) morning at 10 am. Plant and his current band, the Sensational Space Shifters, played some of their own surely weird stuff but also plenty of Zeppelin in last year’s tour. You know what to do.
PS: Our friends at the Bend Chamber of Commerce will feature as part of its What’s Brewing series on May 14 a look at Real-Time Solutions for the Housing Crisis (see the Business item above). Check it out because, to let you in on a little secret, the “Brewing” part means there’s beer.
Your friends can sign up to receive the Bend Business Roundup here. No sales, no spam. Just the weekly email you’ve come to know and love.
Have a great weekend!
