Signs of new life in Bend and Central Oregon are getting noticed across the state. Bend is the cover story of "Oregon Business Magazine" this week.  Editor Robin Doussard says her writers visited Bend recently to find the story: “Bend has been arguable no area flew higher or crashed harder than Bend. It was a canary in the coal mine; 2007 the real estate markets in Central Oregon and southern Oregon were the first to fall and Bend took one of the nation's sharpest plunges in the us housing market. So we set out to see how a community recovers in an economic meltdown." And what they discovered was "surprising" she says; they found many inspirational stories of small and medium businesses that were bringing Bend back to life. Some of the businesses featured were Bend Broadband, Ruff Wear and 10 Barrel Brewing.
