    This is a good one to jump on.

    For those unfamiliar with Oregon...Bend is in the Central Part of the state and is surrounded by our mountains. Great place to be if your are into outdoors...hiking, biking, rafting, climbing, skiing...this area has it all. And Bend is a sizeable city where even though your are a bit isolated, especially in the winter months, you have everything you would need in town from entertainment to hospitals, etc.

    We hit this area every summer for a vacation spot...if I was looking to make a move I'd be on this yesterday. The paper also puts out a quality product and is the main news source in the area with a solid reputation and circulation (last I heard, anyway).

    It's also a great time to buy a home in that area, as the housing market in central Oregon is as soft as any place in the Northwest.

    No local college sports, although they do some game-day coverage of OSU and UO football, each about 2.5 hours west, over the mountains. It's a solid paper, with a pay website.

    Five big high schools in the Bend/Redmond/Prineville circulation area. Good summer league baseball program that's well-supported.

    Far more sunshine than west of the Cascades, and has been said, probably the best time in the last 20 years to buy a house because there's a ton of inventory.

    I have two nephews with a band based now in Bend: Stillfear. Download Stillfear on iTunes. They were trading blows with Megadeth a couple of weeks ago for download action. ... And on the serious side, they genuinely love Bend.

    micro, I believe you meant to say OSU and UO are each 2.5 hours west of Bend, not east. Going 2.5 hours east of Bend gets you approximately to the middle of nowhere. Or maybe Burns. ;)

    and if you're going east have your rifle loaded :)

    Duh. It's corrected. Bend is east of me, but obviously Autzen and Reser are west of Bend. And it's a shitty drive to either venue.
