A look at island transportation By JESSICA HOCH Staff Writer

Somewhere between sustainability and convenience lies a question that communities around the globe are trying to solve. If reliance on oil and reducing energy usage remain two of the world’s most critical environmental problems, then what will

the community of Bainbridge Island do to contribute a solution? How do residents propose to get around the island’s 27 square miles on foot, bikes, buses and wheel chairs in the next 20 years? It’s a question without a clear, cohesive community answer, but not one lacking ideas or solutions. Transportation and its

The Civil Service Commission’s hot potato has reached the state Attorney General’s Office, and Tim Ford, the state’s open government ombudsman, has tossed it right back into the lap of the city. Assistant Attorney General Ford was asked to offer an opinion on three non-noticed meetings that were attended earlier this year by the three-member commission (CSC) and city officials, including City Manager Brenda Bauer and City Attorney Jack Johnson. In an opinion, Johnson said the meetings “appeared” to be lawful, but Ford has questioned that conclusion and recommends that the CSC and the city “redo” the meetings, and any actions taken therein,” in an open public meeting. The request for Ford’s input came from Kim Hendrickson, the CSC’s former secretary/chief examiner whose job was terminated Aug. 12. Since then she has filed a complaint with the city’s Ethics Board

and a petition to have two of the Civil Service body’s three commissioners recalled for malfeasance in office and dereliction of duty. The most injurious part of Hendrickson’s many charges against commissioners David Hand and George McKinney was that they (and the third commissioner, Robert Fernandez) attended the “special” meetings. She claims the meetings were used to reorganize the commission and, because she wasn’t part of the new process, her job was terminated. According to Hendrickson, Fernandez, who has since resigned his post, wasn’t named in the complaint or recall petition because his action “was not a pattern like it was for the others.” She said he came forward on his own and admitted wrong and he was also “told by the city attorney that attending the meetings were legal,” Hendrickson said. The meetings in question were held in January and May after SEE CIVIL SERVICE, A4

Fort Ward fire house earns historical designation By JESSICA HOCH Staff Writer

If there were an award for most interesting space for a closet Suzane Bartel would take the cake. Some of her wardrobe is housed in the base of an early 1900s fire hose tower, one of the amenities that comes from making a home in a historic fire house. “Suzane is inspired,” said her husband, Arthur, who together have worked to restore the historic building since July 2003. “She is an artist, and this is one way she works out her creative vision. I am along for the ride.” After several years of restoration work the Bartels were recently awarded placement on the Bainbridge Island Historic Register

through the Historic Preservation Commission (BIHPC). Their Fort Ward fire house is one of 17 properties on the island. “The commission considered it a very important structure in our island’s history as it is one of the few remaining buildings from Fort Ward when it was a functioning military fort,” said Dave Williams, chair of the BIHPC. “Expanding our register, we are reinforcing the value our community places on our unique history and the importance of preserving physical reminders of that past for future generations to appreciate.” The fire station, which will celebrate its 100th birthday in March 2012 was one of the permanent buildings of Fort Ward, designated

in records by either property No. 14 or 105. Construction was completed March 23, 1912 according to the U.S. Army Quartermaster General order and blueprint records, which said the construction cost totaled $12,000. Fort Ward is an island location rich in historical significance, as one of nine military bases authorized to be built be Congress in the state of Washington during the late 1800s. The blueprints used for the Fort Ward fire station appear to be generic, used for all military fire stations built around the Puget Sound during the time period. In fact, the fire station at Fort Casey on Whidbey Island is home to an SEE FIREHOUSE, A3

around the island BCF’s Clickathon set for Oct. 15-31 Bainbridge Schools Foundation (BSF) will hold its second annual Clickathon from Oct. 15 -31 in support of Bainbridge Island Public Schools. The event is part of the foundation’s annual Phonathon fundraising campaign, which helps support essential programs at Bainbridge Island School District that are not covered by state funding. BSF has pledged to raise $1 million for the school district this year, with a goal of about $150,000 coming from the Clickathon. “This is the fifth year of state cuts totaling $5.8 million dollars,” said Vicky Marsing, BSF’s executive director. “We are counting on our community to help us bridge this gap and continue the excellent education that our island schools provide.” In addition to teacher salaries, teacher training, class-

room enrichment and other programs, the funds this year will support the district’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs. To give, log onto www. and make a donation online. For more information go online or call Vicky Marsing at 855-0530.

Review receives two WNPA awards The Bainbridge Island Review received two editorial awards, in the 2011 Washington Better Newspaper Contest. The Review won first place for Comprehensive Coverage of an Issue and second place for Best Story on the Arts. The news award for a series, written by Review Editor Dennis Anstine, included several stories involving the fatal police shooting of island resident Douglas Ostling in October 2010.,

The arts story, “Poetry is magic for ‘Mad Priest’ McAllister,” was written by reporter Connie Mears. The awards were presented Oct. 7 during the 124th annual Washington Newspaper Publishers Association Convention in Everett. The Review competed against other newspapers in Group III, which includes publications with circulation between 5,001-12,000. The contest drew 2,523 entries from 78 community newspapers; entries were judged by members of the Texas Press Association.

Balizer resigns as HRB director Ken Balizer, executive director of the island’s Housing Resources Board, will step down from his post at the end of 2011 to assume the role of consultant for the Ferncliff Village project. According to Balizer: “With HRB in such a strong position as the result of gains with Ferncliff Village, I believe it’s the right time for


this transition. My stepping down will allow me to spend more time in my hometown of Albuquerque (N.M.) and with my family.” HRB, the island’s non-profit affordable housing group, broke ground on Ferncliff Village in the spring. The Community Land Trust project will consist of 24 cottage-style homes in the first phase, and 24 rental units in the second phase. Over the next two to four weeks, HRB will finish the site development and start construction on homes. Balizer said: “HRB has now set the prices and the reality is impressive,” said Balizer. “Averaging $60,000 under appraised value, someone who earns as little as $30,000 a year could potentially purchase a new green-built home on Bainbridge Island, and just a half-mile from the ferry.” According to Associate Director Phedra Elliott: “Several households are mortgage ready and set to choose a house and lot and enter into a purchase and sale agreement in the next few weeks.”

identical fire house. When the fort was decommissioned, Fenton “Red” Jacobsen bought the fire station in 1959 and renovated it for his family. Jacobsen was a logger and professional scavenger, Suzane said, and much of what was used to renovate the house came from materials scavenged from the fort. Much of the wood, for example, came from the barracks that Jacobsen was hired to tear down. Caroline Flohr purchased the house in May 1999 from the Jacobsen estate, and the Bartels bought it from Flohr in 2003. “I’ve always been attracted to fixer-uppers,” said Suzane. “Restoration work calls you.” Today, the positioning of the hose tower and the single-gable roof over the large space that once housed the fire trucks, correspond with the original blueprint. The shed roof wings, which flank both sides of the large central space appear to have been added sometime while

Jessica hoch/For the Review

The home of Suzane and Arthur Bartel in the Fort Ward neighborhood is all about their home’s history, whether it’s the original firehouse tower, the chicken pen, the historic sign or the fire truck mailbox. the property was under military possession. The wing on the east side of the building housed several rooms and bathrooms. The west side wing had a service kitchen and an area that was later enclosed and

adorned with a fireplace. In the area that once housed the horses, and later fire trucks, Jacobsen added dividing walls for more rooms and Flohr later designed it into a workable living space. A platform

was made from thick handforged, logging or possibly anchor chains, to support steps leading to the back rooms and the hose tower. Horizontal siding adorned the outside of the structure with vertical laid shiplap on

the shed roof wings and a shingled hose tower when Jacobsen owned the building. Flohr replaced the siding on the main structure and roof wings with shingles. The original siding remains at the Fort Casey

building, and its unknown if it remains underneath the shingles that Flohr added. When asked if Suzane is curious enough to tear down the siding to look for see FIRehOuse, a13

made a request for office space and outside legal counsel, among other concerns regarding the police department and commission business. The meetings in question were held in January and May after Hendrickson had expressed concern about a lack of resources. She made a request for office space and outside legal counsel, among other concerns regarding the police department and commission business. The Ethics Board, which serves the city only in an advisory capacity, said the factors were “credible” and that it appeared the commissioners violated the transparency requirement of the Code Ethics. The board will address the issue during its Oct. 17 meeting. However, Johnson issued a legal opinion in a memo to the council on Sept. 27 that said it didn’t appear that a violation occurred because the noticing requirements for a “special meeting” differ from a “regular meeting.” Johnson wrote: “Although one may argue, as a matter of policy, that more or better notice ought to have been

given for the meetings in question, based on the alleged and known facts, it appears that these gatherings of the members of the CSC did not violate requirements of the Open Public Meetings Act.” The “special meeting” noticing clause requires only to notify all other members of the commission and any news organization with a written request for notice on file with the commission. He added that no media groups had filed a required written request of notification about special CSC meetings. Paula Fernandez (Robert’s wife), who was the CSC’s secretary/chief examiner fat the time, said there were requests. According to minutes provided by her, commissioners Glen Tyrrell, Hand and McKinney similarly violated the OPMA in June 2004, and she had distributed literature to them to ensure it wouldn’t happen again. Paula Fernandez also said in a statement released on Oct. 3 that both the Bainbridge Review and Kitsap Sun newspapers had made notification relquests to be put on the her notification list. Ford said none of that really matters He wrote in response to Bainbridge Councilor Bob Scales that: “Regardless of whether a violation actually

occurred at the disputed special meetings, the goal of having new meetings is to allow greater public participation consistent with the ‘spirit’ of the law. The added benefit is if there were legal flaws with the disputed meetings, then they may be cured by a re-do of the same actions in a subsequent meeting. In general, a re-do may provide a quicker resolution for disputes and potentially avert litigation.” He said a redo would include the same topics as the previous one, but not have to replicate exact conversations.

And it should not be a mere ratification.” Scales had asked Ford “to summarize the ‘facts’ that formed the basis of his conclusions and recommendations.” Ford said his role is to provide information and technical assistance on provisions of the OPMA, and his recommendation was not intended to be a conclusion of law regarding whether an actual violation occurred.” Hendrickson said that a “redo would be better than nothing. Rather than a closed door meeting, let’s have public

debate about the Civil Service Commission, our police department and the city’s role. Meanwhile, as the city mulls its options, the Bainbridge Island Police Guild was quick to challenge the “new” CSC.. Scott Weiss, president of the guild’s executive board, has asked the CSC to remove the new “interim pro-tem” S/CE, Kate Brown, who is the city’s senior executive secretary and also serves as an HR analyst. The complaint is that Brown

has been involved in pre-disciplinary investigative interview of Guild members, cases tham may result in appeals to the commission. Weiss said having a HR staff member involved is “inherently unfair and opposed to the principles of equity for the commission — as the city has chosen to direct their involvement in Guild member discipline matters.” (See a timeline on

concern as the island population grows and the culture encourages sustainable lifestyles. Back in June, islanders packed the Senior Center for a meeting on island transportation at Sustainable Bainbridge’s First Monday event. The consensus was that the island has made progress, but it is still far


from creating a network with less reliance on single-occupancy vehicles and more options for alternative modes of transportation such as bicycles, carpools and shared vehicles. Cyclists have to navigate roads with narrow or nonexistent shoulders, sudden drop-offs and hills. In essence, roads are neither bicycle nor pedestrian friendly. There’s nothing new about the roads being narrow, curvy and hilly, but

with increased usage – especially by pedestrians and bicycles – there are congested areas that at times can be downright dangerous. Many of the buses operate on hourly schedules, less conducive to everyday usage; heavily focused on getting ferrygoers to and from destinations and less on moving around the island. Members of the senior citizen and disabled community said they have to rely

Page a5

on friends or neighbors to help them get around as the door-to-door Kitsap Transit Access buses are often late, or require lengthy advance notice for a spontaneous trip to the store. “We have lots of energy and we have lots of ideas, but it has to be done as a collective community-driven goal,” said Kate Ruffing of Camp 4 BI. “We need to know what we want alternative transportation to look like on our island.”

Trails network Between ferry riders, pleasure riders and everyday cyclists, hundreds of bikes roll through the island on any day. Building a more friendly trail network to provide space and safety for cyclists, particularly young bikers, is an idea that has gained momentum in the community. A multi-agency, volunteer-coordinated effort helped build trails out of the island landscape, and there’s a drive to continue doing so with modest fundraising efforts to build a trail-bytrail network. The Friends of Bainbridge Island Trails community group, headed by former non-motorized transportation committee member John Grinter, has made major headway in working with the city to expand opportunities. The Suzuki Path, which runs from the Commodore West neighborhood along Sportsman Club Road to the

New Brooklyn Road intersection, was a collaborative effort. The city donated the land, the Commodore West Homeowners Association helped fundraise several thousand dollars for the work, and the Bainbridge Island Parks and Recreation District helped lay the initial gravel and foundation. The Bainbridge Island Rotary Club provided a matching grant, several businesses provided discounts and volunteers such as Brian Wilkensen of 3B Square Carpentry donated time and supplies to finish the manual labor with an excavator. “[Trails] are a long-standing community driven goal that is possible with a modest fundraising program spending $7,000 a year to tackle roads and trails for non-motorized enthusiasts,” said Grinter. “If we look forward 20 years and start to see tRansPORtatIOn, a13

Having trouble sharing our roads? So let’s fix it


t’s not by accident (just another near-miss) that Squeaky Wheels, the island’s bicycle advocate, is holding a meeting Monday from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Senior Center Commons. Bicyclists and other community activists are calling the event “Safe Roads For All,” and it’s not an oxymoron like it may sound. Dana Berg and other “squeaky wheels” think there’s a little too much animosity being spilled out on the road, whatever mode of transportation one prefers. And she’s afraid that while we sit around and wait for a city with no money to widen some of our most dangerously narrow roads (pick one) someone’s going to get clipped just like what happened in Seattle. For example, one of the worst and busiest stretches is the 500 feet of shoulderless northbound SR-305 near Vineyard Lane. Go figure. There’s a $100,000 (or whatever) bridge there and no shoulder. A state engineer said something like, “there’s no money to fix it and won’t be until someone gets killed.” Lovely. So let’s fix it ourselves. Let’s lower the speed limit in some areas. Increase enforcement, including ticketing bicyclists who roll through stops signs at the bottom of a hill at 30 miles per hour. Or ticketing pedestrians or bicyclists who think they own the road or travel without night lights. And most of all, we need to start thinking about ensuring safer routes around our schools. Essentially, we have to start thinking for ourselves rather than assuming someone will do it for us. Not today. If there are grants out there, then we have to find them. And we have to start caring for our neighbors when we’re traveling because if you haven’t noticed it, these potholed, skinny old roads aren’t built for speed.

LETTERS Shoreline

Renewal of Puget Sound should be our No. 1 goal Oh my gosh. It’s depressing, isn’t it, the relentless drumbeat of alarmdriven letters to the editor and guest editorials from some of Bainbridge Island’s shoreline property homeowners? We certainly are getting their message, loud and clear: Be afraid! The writers are afraid that possible updates to the Bainbridge Island Shoreline Master Program could restrict what they can and cannot do with their property, especially regarding building/rebuilding/ expanding/bulkheads/docks/etc. And, the writers want the rest of us to be afraid too. They warn us that we could be next on this restriction hit-list, and they are threatening to sue the city if these restrictions are enacted. Fear is so creativity-crushing, so soul-sapping… But, thank goodness, these writers still show signs of hope. Almost all of them remind us that they are, in fact, environmentalists. Therefore, it’s heartening to assume, for example, that they are careful with the chemicals they might use on their lawns or in their gardens, and that they don’t dispose of yard waste on tide-flats; they know how environmentally toxic run-off and dumping can be. We can trust they make adjustments in their behavior because of this concern. This is good. So, in the spirit of hope, I’d like to suggest we can all move forward along the path of altering our behavior for the sake of envi-

ronmental health. We can debate the science forever, but why do so? Why not err on the side of caution? We stand a much better chance that way, don’t you think, of ensuring a thriving environment in the years ahead. And I’d like to suggest, further, that erring on the side of caution may, actually, help us turn away from fear and turn toward joy. Instead of bemoaning what we might lose by not being able to build/rebuild this or that, we can instead imagine and experience the joy of our children and grandchildren as they appreciate and are grateful for a healthier and renewing Puget Sound. Instead of looking at sacrifice primarily as a potential financial loss, we can look at sacrifice (“making sacred”) as an affirmation of health for the whole of our community/environment. Let’s act with hope! Jennifer Merrill Bainbridge Island

Port of Bainbridge Island

New taxing agency will be as bad as city, parks As a former Park District commissioner, I saw first hand that both the city and parks should cover all of the plans included in the Port of Bainbridge Island initiative. Parks and city needs to step up and provide the services included in this realm. The parks and city are already so conflicted and dysfunctional, adding another party with a vague set of dreams will only complicate and entrench political incompetence. Paul Bang-Knudsen Bainbridge Island


Outgoing councilor not content with status quo Recent economic events have revealed a new long-term financial landscape for planning how we spend taxpayer money for our city’s budget. I feel compelled to point out how our leadership on City Council is part of the critical phase we presently face for the upcoming election; whether or not we are content with the status quo. Certain council candidates have impressed me with their grasp of government issues along with a professional demeanor that indicates they are willing to make the changes necessary for a sustainable government. At-Large: Steve Bonkowski’s international business background offers a pragmatic influence for future operations and finance policy decisions. Central Ward: Dave Ward has been a voice for keeping the assets of our community secure and affordable. He’s shown an ability to sift through the fog of city public works issues while bringing clarity for our citizens South Ward: Sarah Blossom offers island-born-and-raised sensitivity with a very common sense approach about how we manage land use on our island. North Ward: Melanie Keenan couples knowledge of city finances with a professionally active role in our region’s water management and farming policies. I strongly encourage voters to consider these candidates who bring a fresh, new perspective as we seek a more affordable, sustainable basis for our island’s future. Bill Knobloch City Council member

wither a Port of Baindridge Island? You decide Our November ballot seeks establishment of an island-wide Port District to be managed by five, simultaneously chosen commissioners. If approved by a simple majority vote, the Port of Bainbridge Island becomes our sixth taxing district. Port Districts are given wide latitude in statute whereby commissioners, independent of voter approval, can: 1) Levy property taxes up to $0.45/$1000 assessed valuation; 2) Create Industrial Development Districts funded from property taxes levied in addition to the tax collected for district operations; 3) Acquire property through condemnation or eminent domain; and 4) Sell bonds to finance port operations or any port-approved development district. Proponents of the initiative, with heavy representation from boat owners, surmise initial operations will be funded with an annual $0.11/$1000 tax levy generating $620,000. This is expected to finance commissioner per diem of up to $100/meeting (maximum $12,535/ commissioner/yr.), staff salary and benefits, legal expenses, office fur-

GUEST COLUMN By BOB FORTNER nishings and rent. While the setting of goals and priorities rests with the commissioners, proponent’s first priorities include: completion of the Eagle Harbor waterfront trail and implementation of the Harbor Management Plan. Improvement of: community access to the water at road ends; the public dock at Waterfront Park; boat ramps and facilities for visiting boats (e.g., fuel dock). More broadly, a major district role in economic development is foreseen. What are the pros and cons of this nearly irrevocable decision? The major port cities of Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, Everett, etc., are key promoters of harbor and wetland preservation, pollution cleanup

and economic development made possible from extensive operations with positive cash flow. Smaller districts are active in waterfront development proposed to happen here. Notably, whether large or small, no district is statutorily required to work with other agencies within the same legal jurisdiction. The Municipal Research and Services Center for Washington, an independent resource for city and county elected officials, conducted extensive analysis of special districts and concluded: • Special Districts were operating within the intent of authorizing legislation and appeared to fulfill a need for services which seemed to be effective. Some services might be provided by other government entities, but those entities were not interested. However, there were no mechanisms in place to provide oversight or evaluation of efficiency or effectiveness. • The report also noted: growth planning impeded by lack of coordination between local governments and ports; some were too small; services often duplicated; fewer voters

and candidates participate in district elections. It concluded that goals of cost-effectiveness, coordination and accountability should have precedence, and suggested that small city governments should provide needed services rather than authorize small special purpose districts. With approval being nearly irrevocable, a serious decision confronts us: • Is a Port District the preferred agency for establishing community economic development goals? Our Comp Plan Economic Element, written in 2004, is scheduled for update in 2012-13. Would a newly formed Port District enhance or complicate the needed economic development plan? • Will island governance and efficiencies be improved with the addition of a sixth taxing district? Does the proviso noted by the MRSC above regarding small districts apply to Bainbridge? Our recently formed councilmanager city government has established a strategic planning process which permits direct community involvement in establishing goals

and priorities. Could this be an avenue for addressing the proponent’s priorities? • Will adding another independent taxing agency complicate funding for existing agencies? Does extracting $600,000 a year in additional property taxes put other island priorities at risk, e.g., schools? What happens if the commissioners increase the tax rate? • Will we find individuals with the skills and willingness to manage a Port District? If a Port District is determined to be needed, is it logical or sensible to create it without public vetting of commissioner candidates or a thorough evaluation of their plan prior to approval? Will it be another agency where uncontested races (first filers generally elected) become the norm? This website is a succinct, easily understood overview of Washington Port Districts.

NOV. 8 ELECTION LETTErs Candidates differ over budget digits I’m sorry, but once again City Council Member Barry Peters has his financial facts wrong. At the League of Women Voters Forum (Sept. 4) he disagreed with my numbers that the 2012 budget for the general fund was down and that expenses were up. The Draft 2012 Budget on the city’s website shows that the proposed 2012 General Fund Budget is $177,759 less than the 2011 Revised Budget, and that the total revenue for all funds is $1,280,239 less in 2012 then in 2011. Operating expenditures on the other hand are $766,577 greater in 2012 than in 2011. Added together this constitutes a $2,046,816 error on Mr. Peters’ part. This is exactly the kind of error that got our city into financial trouble in the past when Mr. Peters was chairman of the Finance Committee. In my former capacity as Vice President of Northrop Grumman, I worked daily with complex financial reports and was responsible to make sure the company was financially sound. After following our city’s current and future budget cycle carefully, I’m unable to make sense of Mr. Peters’ financial analysis. This is the reason I’m running for city council: to assure our island residents a

sustainable financial future based on sound City Council decisions.

Steve Bonkowski Candidate for City Council

Stick with winner in general election The good news of progress in the city continues. The 2012 budget looks likely to begin with a $6 million cash balance, including a $1 million surplus, compared to $0 two years ago. Staff has been reduced by nearly a third. Thanks to an upgrade by Moody’s the city was able to issue a $6 million bond to pay off the Sewer Treatment Plant at only 3.44 percent interest – the lowest rate ever. Working together, the council and city staff obtained $1.1 million for reconstruction of Rockaway Beach Road. Even the end of the Winslow Way project is in sight. An impressive record of accomplishments. Important work lies ahead. The Shoreline Management Plan will have to be finished next year. Additional funds must be found for urgent, important non-motorized transportation safety work on North Madison Avenue and elsewhere on the Core 40. The Strategic Planning process the council and city manager have begun to establish budget and staff priorities must be completed. And, inevitably, something else will come up that the city will have to deal with.

Now more than ever it is essential for us to have council members with vision, solid credentials and capabilities – and knowledge and experience in city government. Next month we will have the opportunity to re-elect Barry Peters, the one candidate who has all those qualities and who played an important role in the council’s achievements so far. Barry is the only candidate with valuable council experience during the wrenching times of budget, staff and program cuts since the economy collapsed in 2008. He thoroughly understands the painful but essential trade-offs between competing demands when money is tight, and the need to prioritize programs and spending levels to make the most of whatever funds become available. He is committed to streamlining staff to reduce overhead, and to supporting the administration’s efforts to improve its response to community needs and concerns. And Barry has consistently shown his ability to work constructively with his council colleagues to achieve positive results. Let’s stick with this tried and true performer. Chris Snow Fort Ward Hill

Blair possess all of required skills As co-chair of the Bainbridge Public Library Board Development Committee, I have had the distinct

pleasure of working with Anne Blair on a number of endeavors. For the past two years, she has helped to plan and facilitate our annual retreats. Having served on community organizations for many years, she is incredibly adept at collaborating with a diverse group of volunteers, as well as listening to and distilling a broad array of perspectives. However, Anne’s best gift is truly as a strategic thinker and “doer.” She has infused our committee with her ability to see opportunity for growth and enrichment in the everyday – and she is able to make good on seeing those ideas through to completion. Not only does she possess this remarkable skill set, she also has outstanding communications skills: she is positive, articulate, objective and thoughtful. With this in mind, I enthusiastically recommend her for council. Ruth Baleiko Bainbridge Island

Keenan values citizen’s needs I urge all of you to vote for Melanie Keenan for City Council. Melanie is a brilliant, yet genuinely engaging woman who understands how our city government should work. She strongly supports the direction the council is taking to get our financial situation under control. Melanie worked on the agriculture section of the Land Use Code Update, so she can hit the ground run-

Now Open!

ning when it comes to drafting legislation that will protect our environment, farmers and small businesses. Her scientific background gives her the expertise we need to address toxic wastes, protect our ground water resources, and ensure that city projects are done in the most cost effective manner. She takes a strong stand on transparency in government. Finally, note that her opponent is supported by previous administrations who want to stay in control of our city government. Melanie, by contrast, will be the type of representative we desperately need on the council to ensure that our city moves forward, becomes more financially efficient and stays open to citizen needs. Debbie Vann Former council member

Professionalism is Ward’s calling card It is my pleasure to announce my support for David Ward. This is my first “Letter to the Editor” in support of a candidate, having been an island resident for 34 years. Why now? I have interfaced with Dave on many occasions over the past eight years. I have watched him interface on critical issues with a wide variety of audiences. Most important, I have watched Dave successfully interface at City Hall. He is a professional who gathers all the facts before

engaging on an issue. He identifies the issues to pursue and the proper official to address the matter with. This approach makes him a “proven” performer, which is what our city needs. I encourage that you consider voting for David Ward in Central District Pos. 4. Mike Suraci Bainbridge Island

Levan’s experience perfect for council I first met Joe Levan over 10 years ago when we worked together at Sound Transit, and as one of our in-house counsel Joe provided our agency with consistently solid legal advice. Since then Joe has served cities large and small in different roles. He has heard and learned just about every issue under the sun, and elected officials and staff from cities throughout our state contact Joe and ask for his help. Now Joe wants to help our city as a council member. Joe’s extraordinary city experience makes him uniquely qualified to serve on the council, but Joe is more than just whip smart. Warm and good humored, Joe’s positive outlook made him a joy to work with, and since moving here in 1995, he and his wife and daughter are personally invested in the future of our community. Passionately committed to ensuring that Bainbridge remains a great place to live, work and play, Joe will be a great council member. Clarence Moriwaki Bainbridge Island

City needs to act in best interest of ratepayers Are you too growing weary of the campaign hyperbole and unending dialogue concerning the disposition of the city’s water utility? I’m a city utility ratepayer and I certainly am. It’s been two years since the City approached Kitsap Public Utility District (KPUD) for a proposal for taking over the city’s water and sewer utilities. KPUD responded with a compelling proposal to immediately take over the water utility and a long-range plan to attain authority to add sewer service to their charter. The problem: not only is city water utility operating costs unconscionably high, but the city also relies on utility monies to subsidize island-wide governmental responsibilities and to balance its budget. Yes, the city has reduced water utility staff levels over time. However, it took three years to even

GUEST COLUMN By ARLENE BUETOW consider reducing water rates. And the city remains unwilling to consider refunds of the excessive accumulated reserves. Meanwhile, city operating costs are still higher than the KPUD’s. Most recently, the decision concerning the disposition of the water utility was delayed pending the city’s Utility Business Advisors’ (UBA) Report. The advisors were retained to provide clarity on how such a transfer would happen, what would happen to any proceeds, including the $4.8 million in cash reserves, and determine the financial impacts on the general fund and other city utilities, responsibilities, etc.? Unfortunately the Report finally presented to council last

month failed to address many of these essential issues. Instead of concentrating on questions asked, the advisors concentrated on defining what cost basis, staffing levels and rates the city would need to adopt to become competitive. Unfortunately those conclusions are fatally flawed because they include neither an implementation plan nor a budget under which the projected results could be achieved. In fact, when asked about their ability to operate within the recommended budget, staffing levels and long-term capital improvement budgets, the City responded that to do so would do the following: “require elimination of all preventative maintenance programs,” “have immediate and noticeable consequences to internal and external customers,” and that long-term capital needs could not be deter-

mined until the 2013 update to their Comprehensive Water System Plan. The city’s water utility is not competitive and has no credible plan to become so. By contrast, KPUD is a local non-profit municipal utility with the authority and demonstrated ability to fulfill our needs. It has expressed a willingness to work with the city to accommodate a smooth transition and to apply its extensive experience in water resource management to aid the city in satisfying this and other governmental responsibilities. KPUD already provides water service to over 1,750 households on Bainbridge, and island residents can continue to influence their goals and objectives through the commissioners we elect, not unlike our council. However, unlike the council, waters commissioners’ responsibilities are specific to overseeing the

water utility, acting as lead for coordinated water system planning and resource monitoring throughout Kitsap County, and extending wholesale broadband capabilities connecting rural populations and public agencies previously under-served. The entire city operation will benefit from this experience while the ratepayers are assured a higher level of service for a lower monthly cost under the KPUD. The city has had 20 years to get its affairs in order, and more than two years to evaluate a credible proposal. It’s time for our City Council to stop stalling, to act in the interest of the utility ratepayers once and for all, to take action and move on. Arlene Buetow is a former director of North Bainbridge Water Co. and vice chair to the city’s Utility Advisory Committee.

The Bainbridge girls varsity soccer team, led by coach Scott Druker, have been standing its ground in a tough Metro League this year. The Spartans (6-5-1) have lost two straight at home, losing to Eastside Catholic 3-2 Tuesday after dropping a 1-0 decision to Seattle Prep (11-0-1). The Spartans were scheduled to play at 4 p.m. Thursday at Bishop Blanchet. But they won last Tuesday, earning a 3-2 victory over Bishop Blanchet (5-5-3), largely due to the combined efforts of senior co-captain Emma Vukic and sister Natalie Vukic. Emma scored the team’s first two goals, one of which was assisted by Natalie, the other unassisted. The team’s third and winning goal was scored by Natalie, assisted by Emma. Between the two of them, the Vukic girls can take credit for 19 of the team’s goals so far this season. Natalie scored both goals in the loss to Eastside Catholic Credit goes to the girls getting the ball up the field to these finishers. Senior cocaptain Bryton Wildsmith fought to move the ball up the pitch. Of these players, Druker said they often “look brilliant, with great effort and tremendous ball control.” “Our fitness has been winning us games,” Wildsmith said. “We are in way better shape than any other team in Metro.” According to Wildsmith, her team is also playing extremely well with their new three-five-two formation, which has led them to

Alex Coplan had a strong overall game, making seven tackles, returning three kickoffs for a total of 97 yards and caught a pass for 18 yards.

‘The Guys’ honors sacrifice of first responders Island Theatre presentation explores heroism of firefighters. By CONNIE MEARS Staff Writer

Every life must come to an end. We know that. Intellectually. And while death is the inevitable outcome of being born to this shared experience, as a species we resist it fiercely. The term tragedy, in reference to death, enters in when unusual circumstances challenge our logic, our sense of fairness. Death that doesn’t make sense leaves us not with grief, but despair. In “The Guys,” a play written following 9-11, Nick, a fire chief with the NYFD, has only days to make some kind of sense of the day’s unfathomable events, having lost eight of the men in his command. Charged with writing their eulogies Nick, played by John Kenyon Ellis, must find a semblance of meaning to bring comfort to those left behind, himself included. A daunting task given that words are the only tools with which to accomplish it. “I need a writer,” he says. The unusual circumstances that lead to him finding that writer add a life-affirming counterpoint to the situation. Joan, the writer who comes to Nick’s aid, acknowledges

“The Big Burn” is the story of the 1910 wildfire that destroyed nearly 3 million acres in Idaho, Montana, and Northeastern

In “The Guys,” Ann Wilkinson Ellis (background) plays the editor who helps a fire chief, played by John Kenyon Ellis (foreground), come to terms with losing eight men in his command on 9-11. the unlikeliness of the two strangers meeting. “You couldn’t create another sequence of events that would connect us,” she said. In this case, art imitates life. Ann Wilkinson Ellis, who plays Joan, worked with John briefly years ago on a BPA Radio Show production of “It’s a Wonderful Life.” After the show, they went about their lives, unaware that they would meet years later and fall in love. “The Guys” is the first theater work they’ve done together since getting married last spring. Another thread that runs

parallel is Ann’s “New York chapter.” Growing up on Bainbridge Island, she went to New York City to study theater and music. She moved back to the West Coast in 2000, just before 9-11. John, while in New York last week, visited one of the fire stations as research for his part. A wall-length memorial to the 10 guys the station lost on 9-11, and its motto, “Lest we ever forget,” struck a chord. And though John is probably known more for his comedic turns on Bainbridge stages, he shares the role first portrayed by another funny

man, Bill Murray. “Comedy and tragedy are very close. They’re kindred souls,” John said. The play weaves bits of levity into the fabric. “It’s not maudlin,” Anne said of the play, which is based on a true story. “It’s powerful, but very tender and also inspiring. Your

Written by Timothy Egan, who made a recent appearance at the North Kitsap Community Auditorium Oct. 11, the book was selected by the Kitsap Regional Library as its “One Book One Community” read for 2011. KRL will be holding book discussion groups at all nine branch libraries to

talk about the selected book. The discussions of “The Big Burn” on Bainbridge Island are at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18 at the Senior Community Center and at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26 at the Bainbridge Library.

“The Greatest Good: A U.S. Forest Service Centennial Film,” a 2005 documentary on the history of the U.S. Forest Service, takes viewers on the journey from the “wise use” of resources to the idea of a “land ethic.” You can view the film online or watch it at 7 p.m. Oct. 24 at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. A discussion will follow the viewing of the film.

heart will be touched, but it gives you something, too. It doesn’t leave you in a hole.” Courage, this time by playwright Nelson, saves us. The play shares the theme of heroic efforts with “The Big Burn,” the book selected by Kitsap Regional Library as its “One Book, One Community” selection for 2011. Seventy-eight firefighters lost their lives fighting the Big Burn and trying to protect the towns in its path. Starting with this weekend’s performance at the Bainbridge Library, the play, directed by Kate Carruthers, will be read at libraries throughout Kitsap County, with local firefighters invited to attend. The run will wrap up with a final performance Oct. 29, at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.

On 9-11, a total of 411 emergency workers, including 341 firefighters and two paramedics from the new York city Fire department, died as they attempted to rescue people. Because of these ordinary guys, between 14,000 and 17,000 people were saved in new York city that day.

Baugher tackles ekphrastic writing What’s happening trifecta at Stompsomegrapes in Field’s End October Roundtable Author EagleHarborBooks likeLucyRicardo By CONNIE MEARS Staff Writer

Writer Janée J. Baugher stumbled into ekphrastic writing accidentally at the Guggenheim museum when a small painting impacted her enough that she sat right down on the floor and started writing a poem. “I was even yelled at by the security guard,” she said Wednesday on the phone. The painting by Georg Baselitz, aptly entitled “Der Dichter” or “The Poet,” introduced Baugher to a creative house of mirrors: a poet writing about a piece of visual art depicting a poet. Who knows if the poet in the painting was writing about a piece of art? Examples of ekphrastic writing, a cross-pollinating artform, abound, perhaps because artists of all mediums often run in the same circles. Baugher will share the results of 15-year’s worth of exploration at the October Field’s End Writers’ Roundtable presentation, “Visual Arts in the Literary Arts: How and Why We Write Ekphrastically” from 7-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18 at the Bainbridge Public

Janée J. Baugher Library. Baugher calls ekphrasis, from the Greek ek and phrasis or “out” “speak,” a “reason to celebrate” the human ability to see. After backpacking through Europe six times in a decade, Baugher assembled a collection of writings, “Coördinates of Yes,” half of which were inspired by visual artwork of primarily the “long-dead” masters. Baugher uses visual art as a starting point for her writing, illustrating T.S. Eliott’s theory that poetry is a way of “escaping the personality.” Unlike many ekphrastic writers, Baugher doesn’t describe works of art in literal terms. Instead the art works as a point of inspiration, a starting point from which she embarks on her own creative

journey. “It’s like scaffolding.,” she said. “Eventually the story starts to reveal itself. You literally use the painting, but not as a literal interpretation of it.” She has written in response to the art work of strangers as well as friends, even going so far as to pose for a painter in hopes of inspiring a poem. “It was hellacious,” she said. “Four months sitting naked in a studio. But I did get the poem.” At Tuesday’s Roundtable Baugher will explore the use of ekphrasis adopted by writers such as Gertrude Stein, Rainer Maria Rilke and Frank O’Hara, and define the boundaries that “naysayers of the world” say ekphrastic writers cross. Baugher holds a BS in human physiology from Boston University and an MFA in creative writing from Eastern Washington University. For the past decade, she has taught at Highline Community College, the University of Washington Experimental College, Interlochen Center for the Arts, Richard Hugo House and elsewhere.

prioritize how we can become a recreation destination community where people come from all over to walk, bike and experience the outdoors and the beauty of the island.” Grinter’s goal is for the trails group to continue raising funds to create a system of separated pathway and low-traffic roads that connect the Manzanita area in the northwest part of the island to Winslow, and Winslow to all of the island’s most popular public parks. Grinter envisions a system of paths that would allow parents to be comfortable letting children traverse the island without worrying that they will have to share the road in dangerous proximity to vehicles. Another trail connection is in the works through an easement on the Bethany Lutheran Church property, which is a triangle of property straddled by the busy High School, Sportsman Club and Finch roads.

Funding woes A county-wide trail vision is also on the horizon. On Nov. 7, the North Kitsap Trails Association will hold a meeting at the Senior Center’s Commons to receive input on a master plan that outlines trails throughout the North Kitsap region with connections to other western counties. Despite community enthusiasm, including a Comprehensive Plan that remains dedicated to neighborhoods that are pedestrian

The kitchen has been upgraded, and other amenities were added including improved heating and cooling systems. Though the Bartel’s both passionately love their fire house home, quirks and challenges are a staple in any restoration project. When the Bartel’s decided to make the fire house doors a permanent part of the home,

Commuters driving on Madison Avenue North share the road with a bicyclist in the bike lane installed last spring. and bicycle oriented, especially Winslow, whose urban core is planned as a mixeduse, pedestrian-oriented village, it hasn’t always been easy to secure the necessary funds from the city. Many of the projects that were part of the $8 million bond passed in 2008 ended up going over budget, which took away from the funds that were targeted for easements and acquisitions, according to City Councilor Debbi Lester. In 2010, $79,000 targeted for trails in the 2008 bond remained in the city’s coffers, but overages whittled it down to just $26,000 this year. In May the council voted to reserve that $26,000 for easements at the request of the non-motorized committee. With several possibilities for trail expansion on the horizon, the goal was to keep the money viable. “We are starting to get instead of movable garage doors, they had to wait to begin construction until the summer. For about six weeks Arthur had just a plastic sheet for a living room wall and the house was a dusty mess. Neither Arthur nor his dogs were too happy about the experience, he said. Suzane was visiting family in California. “She snuck out of that one,” said Arthur. In some ways, the fire house is more manageable in the realm of historical restoration. In places such as the east coast it can require more specific tradesman to replace original castings, and moldings. Rehabilitation on a working structure, such as the fire house, can be less technical. The slate roof, both a beauty,

complete streets The concept of “complete streets” has grown in popularity from small communities like Bainbridge to a major metropolis such as New York City. Transportation networks with built-in amenities for all modes of travel are helping to reinvent the way cities tackle the development and restoration of their streets and roads. Lester hopes Bainbridge will keep that in mind as the state adopts legislation and possible grant opportunities that give incentives to design with everyone in mind.

and a curse, is the Bartel’s biggest challenge. Slate once adorned all of the permanent buildings at the fort, as with the fire station at Fort Casey, and remains in its original form. It did need some work when the Bartel’s moved in, and requires the expertise of a slate expert who is just about the only guy around who can mend a roof that is too fragile to walk-on. The fire house isn’t the Bartel’s first project as they once inhabited an old barn in California. Made from mined adobe in the 1930s, rooms and bedrooms were fashioned from stalls and tack rooms made for closet space. “It was one of Suzane’s dreams to live in a barn,” said Arthur. “It was an interesting place to call home.” The Bartel’s purchased

“We are getting there, and Winslow Way falls somewhat in this category with wider sidewalks and a better bike lane, but we’ve got room to grow.” The city’s financial challenge has made it difficult to perform even basic infrastructure maintenance on its road system for the last several years, but with the adoption of a new system to track road health and prioritize projects the council hopes to get back on track. “As roads begin to need maintenance or complete reconstruction I think the council will find dollars to add in amenities for cyclists and pedestrians whenever possible,” said Lester. The council voted in July, for example, to apply for a new federal TIB Sidewalk Program grant, which provides funding for projects that address safety, access to generators and system

Work in the Bartel’s backyard is slightly complicated as the site once served as a WWI power station so electrical vaults dot the backyard. “We are never short of things to point out on any tour we give,” said Arthur. Though there are perks to owning a historical building, such as a discount card and a special ten-year property tax freeze if substantial improvements are made, the Bartel’s say it’s a love of this kind of work that drives any project. Next up is fixing the delapitated fence that has begun to lean. “It’s always a work in progress around here,” said Suzane.

Brian Dempsey July 7, 1956 – October 9, 2011 Brian Dempsey passed away last Sunday morning at 5:00 after a 2½ year battle with colon cancer. Those who knew Brian during this time were amazed at the way he continued to embrace life and always found time for his friends and family. Brian was born in Eugene, Oregon and moved to the northwest during his high school years. While in high school, Brian blazed a path in the junior golf world by winning the Washington Amateur and a host of other tournaments and still holds several course records in Snohomish County. He earned a golf scholarship to the University of Oregon, but injured his hip in the weight room at the end of his freshman year. After recovering he took a year to try to make the PGA tour and missed the cut by one stroke! Golfing with Brian was not only a treat but often resulted in the participant getting pointers that helped his/ her game. Brian married Patricia in 1977 and they started their family shortly thereafter. Many knew Brian in different ways. He had his motorcycle friends, his mountain climbing friends, his golfing buddies and his close network of church friends. When Brian was not involved in his outside activities or with his family, he was most known in this community through his role as President of Fairbank Construction Company. Brian started working for the company shortly after his pursuit of the PGA in 1980. During the past 30 years, Brian grew from working as a carpenter, supervisor, estimator and project manager to finally, in 1998, being appointed president of the company. Anyone who knew Brian was not surprised by this new position. Over the years he had shown again and again an exceptional eye to detail and worked endlessly to make sure each client was happy with the end results. Brian oversaw the day-to-day operation of a company that had grown from three employees starting in 1978 to over 70 by the spring of 2008 and was actively building projects in five counties. Brian’s sincerity, integrity and thoroughness were traits that anyone who encountered Brian was quick to experience. Brian was known for his can-do attitude and the stories of his going the extra mile for clients are many. He spent one Christmas Eve wrapping a leaking chimney with a tarp in the pouring rain – on top of a steep second floor roof! His weekend visits to job sites or meetings with clients were many and those that worked with him knew him as someone who listened and acted upon whatever decisions were made in those meetings. At the end of the day, Brian could often be found at his favorite restaurant, San Carlos. From 2006 – 2011, Brian served on the board of the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce. Those who served with him remember him as conscientious and thorough in whatever task he needed to do. He only stepped down due to his health. Brian is survived by his wife, Patricia, three children, Jeremy, Mariah and Jordan and seven grandchildren. They all reside in the area. TRIBUTE Paid Notice

FYI POLICE BLOTTER Bainbridge Police reported the following incidents: Oct. 11 Bainbridge Island fire and police units were dispatched to a vehicle fire on State Route 305 just south of Agate Pass Bridge. The vehicle, owned by a Renton woman, was impounded due to being a traffic hazzard. Oct. 11 A citizen reported a bicycle aban-


doned in the bushes off Wardell Road. Public Works staff assisted with extracting the bike from the bushes and placed it into evidence.

a gouge and scrapes. The owner estimated the damage at around $30. Oct. 5 A medical clinic called police and an aid unit to attend to an assault victim. The woman had facial injuries after an unidentified person hit her. The victim declined to name the suspect. Oct. 5 The harbormaster and a police officer attempted to serve the skipper of a boat for various violations. The vessel was parked at the Waterfront Dock and no payment was made at the payment kiosk. The harbormaster was seeking to serve the skipper papers regarding derelict vessels in Eagle Harbor, but the skipper refused to appear as requested.

Recognizing the importance of pets

PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap strives to keep pets with their owners PET RETENTION



he struggling economy has caused more than lost jobs and foreclosures. It's also caused heartache for pets and their families. “In the three years since the downturn of the economy, pet shelters nationwide have been besieged by pet surrenders, which were done purely for financial reasons,” said Mark Hufford, executive director of PAWS of Bainbridge and North Kitsap. But before we go any further, let's clear up the name confusion. The PAWS in this article is an independent organization. It’s not affiliated with any of the 40 organizations nationwide that use the name PAWS. So what does the local PAWS do? “We are more than just the cat adoption center on Miller Road [on Bainbridge Island]. That’s only about one-sixth of what we do,” program director Marylou Zimmerman said.

An important mission of PAWS is to help pet owners keep their furry friends. This is accomplished by providing low-income spay and neuter services, veterinary assistance, and stocking pet food at local food banks. “We do what any caring neighbor would do if their neighbor came to them and said, ‘I lost my job and my dog needs surgery,’ ” PAWS executive director Mark Hufford said. “We help low-income families and provide direct financial assistance to care for pets of low-income neighbors.” Locally, he estimates PAWS has helped more than 1,000 pets remain with their owners. PAWS asks the question, “How can we help families keep their pets?” If a dog suffers from an ear infection and the owner can’t afford treatment, sometimes the owner believes the only option is to turn the dog over to a shelter in order for it to receive medical care. That is where PAWS steps in to help provide financial

assistance. “I believe we’re the only organization in all of Western Washington with a program of this type, and there’s no question it’s helped stem the tide of potential pet relinquishments,” Hufford said. He estimates that since the stock market crash in 2008, PAWS has helped more than 1,000 pets remain with their owners. Keeping the pet out of the shelter benefits the animal and its owners. “If you are at a lowincome level, everything is already stressful,” Zimmerman said. “Being able to have a connection with a pet that is uncomplicated is great for the whole family.” In the two years since PAWS began its pet food drive, Zimmerman estimates PAWS has helped to distribute 12 tons of food to local food banks. “They can’t keep it on the shelf,” she said.

PETS AND LOVING SENIORS (PALS) Based on research showing that living with or interacting regularly with pets lowers rates of heart attack and heart disease, PAWS has teamed up with seniors in the community to connect then with other seniors — senior cats, that is.

“Being able to have a connection with a pet that is uncomplicated is great for the whole family.” Marylou Zimmerman, program director for PAWS of Bainbridge and North Kitsap

Through this program, an older cat is placed in the home of a senior, and PAWS maintains ownership of the cat. (That way, if the foster parent needs to move to a different location where animals aren’t allowed, the cat will be returned to PAWS.) PAWS also covers the cat’s expenses. And because older cats are more difficult to adopt (most people prefer to adopt kittens or younger cats), this program helps get an older cat out of the shelter and into a home. “As a senior, having a warm, loving body in your house may be your only daily connection with something else,” Zimmerman said. “It’s a nice connection for the seniors, and it’s great for older pets.”

Among the many services PAWS offers is veterinary assisCourtesy photo tance help for low-income pet owners.

schools and libraries. It takes a special dog and the training is rigorous — the instructor tests how well the dogs do with loud noises, medical equipment and shouting.

PET ADOPTIONS The PAWS adoption facility on Bainbridge is strictly for cats, but it offers a personal shopper service to help families find the perfect dog. Here’s how it works: an adoption specialist sits down with the interested party and asks a lot of questions, such as “What are you looking for in a dog?” “What is your family like?” By asking questions, the adoption specialist can help narrow down the types of dog that would be the best fit for the family. Then the specialist begins to scour websites looking for the right dog. Specialists are familiar with how to decipher listings on the Internet — think doggie personals. “Would do best living in a house without felines” may mean the dog enjoys chasing cats. The goal is to help find the right match for the dog and the new family. Taking the time up front to figure out what type of dog would best suit the family helps to prevent the dog from being returned. If, say, the See PAWS, Page 3

PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap: PAWS’s service area is Bainbridge and North Kitsap from Hansville to Silverdale. Info: www. Rescue Every Dog (R.E.D): Kitsap-based, but help dogs throughout the state. Info: www. Kitsap Humane Society: Located in Silverdale. Info: The organizations all work together, with the common goal of helping pets and owners. Abby Ouiment, director of public relations for the Kitsap Humane Society, said, “Sometimes in the non-profit world, people think you’re competitive for donor dollars and publicity. But in the animal welfare world, people really care about the animals, so it’s whatever it takes to get them adopted.”

Continued from page 2

DONATIONS Like most non-profits, PAWS relies on donations to help cover expenses. Requests for veterinary assistance have gone up 30 percent per year, for three years in a row. In order to meet the continuing demand, Hufford said PAWS has a goal of raising $75,000 by Jan. 1. During the month of October, the first $10,000 in online donations will be matched dollar for dollar by an anonymous donor. (Donors can donate via the PAWS website; see sidebar for details.) Hufford is constantly amazed with the generosity of the community — down to its youngest members. “We’ve had kids (operate) lemonade stands for PAWS,

or some ask for donations to PAWS instead of birthday gifts,” Hufford said. “When that happens, it just about knocks you over with a feather.” And while there has always been a percent-

age of the population that struggles financially, Zimmerman said the group has grown larger. “We get assistance requests from people that used to be our donors,” she said.

BREMERTON PATRIOT Olympic High School program provides dresses for school dances: “Isn’t it $100 for a dress?” a student casually asked as she walked into Olympic High School with several dresses slung behind her back. Catherine Kamp, a volunteer for the “Oly Boutique” corrected the student: The dresses are free. The Oly Boutique, run by Kamp and Katie Fanua, the school’s security guard, is a program where donated dresses are provided to girls for the high school’s dances at no charge. The girls can keep the dress or donate it back to the program. — CENTRAL KITSAP

It has been 23 years since the family disappeared, and the murders are still unsolved. It has been rumored that Otis and Lester are cannibals; that Lester finds potential victims through his work at the carnival. Otis is the one who captures and butchers the selected few. The sheriff is looking for volunteers to go to the abandoned barn where the McBane family was first found. He thinks that evidence may be found and believes that the only way to do this is to rely on strength in numbers, feeling that Otis and Lester wouldn’t dare take on hundreds of people at once.

Age-old traditions continue to delight

Chinese acrobats will entertain in Bremerton BY: ERIN JENNINGS Kitsap Week


he Chinese acrobatic traditions that have been around for more

than 2,000 years will take to the stage in Bremerton on Sunday. “The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats will perform death-defying and gravitydefying acts,” said Cynthia

Dike-Hughes, spokesperson for the troupe. The troupe consists of 13 young people, all from China and all professional acrobats. Chinese students graduate from high school at the age of 16 and then either go on to college or begin a career. Aspiring acrobats begin training at the age of 6 or 7 and attend specialty schools. In the morning, they are taught the three R's; in the afternoon, they perfect their acrobatic craft. By the age of 16, they are considered professionals and begin their careers. “It’s quite prestigious to be an acrobat in China,”

Dikes-Hughes said. “Many acrobatic families pass down the tradition.” Unlike modern jugglers who may use bowling balls and glow sticks in their acts, the acrobatic tradition is all about utilizing what people have on hand. Jugglers perform with chairs, pots, tables and vases. And while Dike-Hughes will not give away all the surprises in the show, she did point out some highlights: such as the two strong men who balance off each other and contortionists who bend their bodies in ways you didn't know were possible. And then there is the bicycle pagoda. Unlike a typical Schwinn, this bicycle holds not one rider but 13. The Shangri-La Acrobats have performed for 32 years across the country. Dike-Hughes said it's a very family-friendly show and entertains all ages from young children up to grandparents.

Safely dispose of your medicine

Who are you again? What to do when you forget a name Dear Erin, How do you handle a situation when you forget the name of a person that you have casually known for years? Stammering in Seabeck Dear Stammering, The older I get, the more this happens to me. Just last week I ran into an acquaintance that I've known for 10 years. I remembered lots of details: her children's names, her hometown and even her dog. But for the life of me, I couldn't recall her name at that exact moment. When this happens — and it happens to the best of us, I suggest being overly polite and honest. “I am so sorry, but I’m having a brain freeze. Can

ASK ERIN By ERIN JENNINGS you please remind me of your name again?” Then go on to point out that you do indeed remember the person, such as, “I know our children were in third grade together,” or “I met you at the Robinsons’ party.” That way, the person

knows you haven’t forgotten them, just that you temporarily can’t recall their name. If anyone has suggestions on what to do when a person persistently forgets that you've met before, send me your ideas. There is one person whom I have met probably eight times and each time she acts as if she's meeting me for the first time. I am running out of politeness with her. And no, she doesn't suffer from prosopagnosia – a disorder of face perception. She remembers other people, just not me. — Ask Erin is a feature of Kitsap Week. Have a question? Email ejennings@

Keep your family safe by properly disposing unwanted drugs. On Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Sheriff ’s Office in the Kitsap Mall (near the Food Court), people can drop off their unwanted medicine. As opposed to flushing unwanted medicine down the drain, this is a preferable way of disposing of medicine. (Throwing medicine away in the garbage or down the drain can pollute the environment and water supply.) At a similar event in April, 185 Kitsap people brought in 400 pounds of medicine.

GUIDELINES: ■ Prescription and over the counter substances will be collected. ■ Law enforcement will not make an effort to identify participants. ■ All solid and noninjectable liquids will be accepted, for example, cough syrup. ■ Insulin is not accepted. ■ Syringes and other medical waste will not be accepted. ■ Illicit substances such as marijuana or meth will not be accepted. ■ All drugs must be in a container or bag. ■ Drugs cannot be loosely mixed in containers or bags.

Safe medicine disposal helps to reduce drug abuse and accidental poisoning. File photo

Author, coach shares insights at ShareNet benefit KINGSTON — Leadership and coaching expert John C. Maxwell has written more than 60 books, primarily focusing on leadership. His books have sold more than 19 million copies, with some on the New York Times Best Seller List and translations in more than 50 languages. He’s one of 25 authors and artists named to Amazon. com's 10th anniversary Hall of Fame. Every year, Maxwell conducts seminars for Fortune 500 companies, international government leaders, and organizations as diverse as the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the National Football League. And now he’s coming to Kitsap County to share his insights, with all registration fees donated to ShareNet Food Bank in Kingston thanks to event sponsors Parker Financial LLC; Sherrard, McGonagle & Tizzano, Attorneys at Law; Haven in Allyn, Long Term Care; and The event, “The Five Levels of Leadership featur-

ing Dr. John C. Maxwell,” is Nov. 1 at the Kitsap Convention Center Harborside, next to the Bremerton ferry. It’s a major fundraiser for ShareNet, which has launched its Neighbor Aid 2011 campaign. Last year’s Neighbor Aid campaign covered almost half of ShareNet’s annual budget and enabled it to meet 8,500 needs – food, keeping electricity on when faced with a shutoff notice, paying rent when faced with eviction, and providing take-home food for the weekend for school children. That number is according to ShareNet director Mark Ince, who is one of four part-time employees. Ince said ShareNet’s annual budget is about $150,000. Food bank hours are Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5-7 p.m.; and Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ShareNet is one of eight registered food banks in Kitsap County. Its defined service area is Kingston, Eglon, Hansville, Indianola, Port Gamble, and parts of Poulsbo and Suquamish. Barbara Brumagin, min-

istry coordinator at Bayside Church, said Maxwell will provide leaders of businesses and other organizations, as well as their staffs and team members, with key leadership principles they can apply to all facets of their lives.

More on Maxwell: Three of his books sold one million copies each: “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership,” “Developing the Leader Within You,” and “The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader.” For more than 30 years, Maxwell has led churches in Indiana, Ohio, California, and Florida. After serving as senior pastor for 14 years, in 1995 he left Skyline Church, near San Diego, to devote himself full-time to speaking and writing. However, in 2004, he returned to congregational ministry at Christ Fellowship in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., where he is currently a teaching pastor. On Nov. 16, 2008, he began serving as a guest pastor

at the famous Crystal Cathedral in Orange County, Calif. His messages are broadcast worldwide on the Hour of Power television program, seen by an estimated 20 million viewers. Maxwell serves on the Board of Trustees at Indiana Wesleyan University and has a building named after him there, the Maxwell Center for Business and Leadership.

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood.
