A bad economy is bringing out some bad behaviors in downtown Bend. The head of the Downtown Bend Business Association says they are helping merchants be pro-active in dealing with some behavior challenges in or near their stores. Chuck Arnold explains: “The challenges of a multitude of people that are faced with either mental health issues; homelessness; joblessness will create an increase in drug use because of people having tough circumstances and some turning to drugs and then what that creates is a set of behavior issues and that's what were trying to address downtown as far as addressing the challenges." Arnold says one way they are tackling the problem is a campaign called "say no to panhandling". The marketing message urges people and business owners not to give cash to homeless people, but rather to direct them to the correct social service agency.
