KINGSTON — Three people — including a couple known for fostering children and helping people overcome addictions — died Wednesday in a two-car headon collision on Highway 104 near Balmoral Place NE in

Kingston. The State Patrol identified the deceased as Robin N. Bishop, 59, of Kingston, the lone occupant of a 1994 Lexus; and Anthony A. Adams and Marion D. Sparks, both 44, of Little Boston, the occupants of a 1985 Ford Escort. All were

declared dead at the scene. The crash occurred at about 7 p.m. According to the State Patrol, Bishop was driving westbound on 104 when her vehicle crossed the center line and struck the Ford Escort, which was headed eastbound and was driven by Adams. The impact redirected Adams’ car toward the southwest shoulder and both vehicles ended up in the ditch. According to State Patrol, See CRASH, Page A2

ne day a few years ago, while working around the house, Phil Bonderud accidentally stuck himself in the arm with a knife. At the urgent care clinic in Port Orchard, his partner David Smith assisted him with paperwork and showed clinic staff members their domestic partnership registration cards. Smith said the nurse didn’t know how to accommodate their domestic partnership, and didn’t allow Smith to sign for his partner’s paperwork — though any privilege, benefit and responsibility given through a marriage license is also given through domestic partner-

ship registration. “It’s not something that needs to be punished, but it’s an example See MARRIAGE, Page A9
