The “Liberty Rally” in Bend was cancelled this last weekend because of problems with the permitting process. Eric Kropp with Deschutes County's Permitting Department says the group only applied for a permit a week before the event, when they normally like a couple months lead time to work through any problems.  Kropp says the group was notified there was a problem early last week: “I certainly look forward to have more time to work with them on how to meet the permit requirement. It has absolutely nothing to do with the nature of their event.” Some organizers claimed the County denied the permit because of political reasons, but Kropp says that's absolutely not true. The group hopes to reschedule the rally.
