Liveaboard buoys approved Additional buoys will allow 10 more boats. By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer
Eagle Harbor may soon have some new neighbors moving in as capacity for liveaboard vessels was approved earlier this week. A total of 20 buoys will be added to the linear moorage already in place. This will allow for 10 more vessels to tie up in the harbor. After the additional buoys are in place, Eagle Harbor will have the buoy capacity to accommodate 24 liveaboard vessels. This reflects a maximum potential occupancy for the open-water marina. City Manager Brenda Bauer said that for the time being, the city will only be installing limited infrastructure for
tenants who are not currently on the linear moorage. Any work on the moorage will be occurring only after all permits have been approved. The additional buoys are keeping with a city policy to preserve the open-water marina in the harbor — a unique feature, and community, that is anchored in the island’s history. In the application for a conditional use permit, approved by Hearing Examiner Stafford Smith, it was stipulated that all available open-water moorage in the Eagle Harbor be designated as residential use. Any spots unused by liveaboard vessels can be used by transient moorage. Now that the hearing examiner has made his decision, the Department of Ecology will review a permit application, after which SEE LIVEABOARDS, A4

Former S/CE defends record regarding files Hendrickson says missing files were not her responsibility. By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer
The former secretary/ chief examiner of the Civil Service Commission Kim Hendrickson has been actively defending her record regarding the issue of lost files under her purview, creating yet another debate surrounding the commission. At the Nov. 30 City Council meeting, as council was discussing the reasons behind placing the S/CE position with a city employee, it was argued by a
number of council members that having a private contractor using personal and home-based equipment was contributing to insufficient performance by the private contractor — one example was the state of files for the commission. It was revealed that some CSC files were missing, while others were simply disorganized. Both Hendrickson and her predecessor were private contractors, and not city employees. One of the files missing from the CSC, and one that was pointed out at the Nov. 30 council meeting, is that of Officer Jeff Benkert, who was involved in the 2010 fatal police shooting of Douglas Ostling. Since then, Hendrickson, who was terminated from
the S/CE position in August, has been attempting to make her side of the story known in defense of her record, claiming that she is not the cause of problems with the CSC files. It has stirred another cycle of debate between the city, Hendrickson and the community. “I remain extremely troubled by the assertion by City Manager (Brenda) Bauer that I lost (or withheld) the employment applications of officers Jeff Benkert and David Portrey,” Hendrickson said in a letter to Council Member Debbi Lester.” This assertion was made, without equivocation, at the Nov. 30 city council meeting. This is more than a critique of my work product: I have been blamed for lost evidence in an upcoming federal trial.”
Hendrickson further put forth that files under the police department’s responsibility, not the CSC, are missing. According to Bauer, Benkert’s file from the CSC is the only file missing that relates to officers in the Ostling shooting, and that since Chief Jon Fehlman was hired in 2009, there have been no files missing from the police department. While she was S/CE, Hendrickson said, she seldom visited the CSC files and kept all active files at her home office. “I probably went in (to the CSC files) once every three months, maybe,” said Hendrickson. “The reason I would go in there would be because there was a public records request. That was
really the only real reason.” where they are developed According through the to Bauer, files use of a Gmail “I remain extremely should have account that troubled by the been orgathe city has nized when no access to assertion by City they were back-up Manager (Brenda) or created and for, and where Bauer that I lost maintained personal comin accormunications (or withheld) the dance with are mixed in employment applilabor rules, with official cations of officers city records,” case law and statute and it Bauer said, Jeff Benkert...” appeared that further notKim Hendrickson, former C/CE for this was not the City of Bainbridge Island ing that these being done issues were all while under present with the private Hendrickson. contractor.

Land Trust now owns Hilltop property
Photo by Thomas Schworer
Bainbridge Island Land Trust has purchased the 31-acre Hilltop property as it closes in on its goal of joining the east and west portions of the Grand Forest and connecting a 540-acre swath of protected natural landscapes. “Hilltop was a critical missing link, said Executive
Director Asha Rhenberg. “It represents more than three years of hard work by the BILT board, staff and volunteers, and the culmination of a 22-year vision for creating a cross-island wildlife corridor.” BILT took title to Hilltop in late November, subject to a mortgage it is still fund-
raising to pay off. The goal is to complete the fundraising by mid-2012. More than $2.5 million has been committed, with $1.1 million needed to meet BILT’s $3.6 million campaign goal.
With the exception of a $250,000 grant from the C. Keith Birkenfeld Memorial Trust, much of the major private support has been anonymous, according to Rhenberg.
Evergreen huckleberries are plentiful during the fall months on much of the 31-acre Hilltop Farm property,

around the island Council accepts UAC’s water recommendation The council voted 4-3 to accept recommendations by the Utility Advisory Committee for the city to retain the water utility under certain conditions. Among its conditions, the UAC recommended that the city reduce rates by 45 percent — this includes the already implemented rate reduction of 34 percent from September. The UAC placed emphasis on keeping the city’s water utility competitive with the rates of the Kitsap Public Utility District. To do all of this, the UAC asked that the Full-Time Equivalent for the utility be dropped to 4.5 FTE from 6.5 FTE. The matter will be readdressed after 18 months to ensure that the city is remaining competitive with KPUD. If not, retaining the utility may be reconsidered.
Inns are approved for island’s service centers The issue of defining “inns” and distinguishing them from hotels and bed & breakfasts on the island was put to rest at Wednesday’s council meeting. The council voted unani-
mously to pass an ordinance defining the form of lodging. Inns will now be allowed in the neighborhood service center, mixed use town center and the High School Road district. Inns will be limited to only 15 rooms.
Friends of the Farm get a 30-year lease A round of applause broke out during Wednesday evening’s city council meeting as the council unanimously approved a 30-year master lease for farmers on cityowned farm land. Friends of the Farm board member Ryan Vancil thanked the council for their commitment to local farmers. Friends of the Farm have been attempting to establish a lease for six years. A task force will be formed to oversee the implementation of the lease and its requirements.
Collaborative policing group meets At its inaugural event, Islanders for Collaborative Policing (ICP) held a community forum to discuss local policing on Bainbridge Island. The event was held
at Flowering Around on Winslow Way West. The theme of the event was citizen responsibility. Panelists consisted of Trisha King-Stargel from Seattle University, Toby Nixon of the Washing coalition for Open Government, the former director of the Frenso Office of Independent Police Review Eddie Aubrey, and former BIPD detective Scott Anderson. Mike Gaffney from Washington State University served as facilitator of the event. ICP now seeks to form a mission statement, board, advisors and an online presence.

the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will also review the proposal, before any additions to the marina can be made. The City Council approved the open water marina in 2010 with the intent to provide support for the local liveaboard community. The city had spent nearly eight years prior to approving the open water marina working with the Department of Natural Resources to create the marina and accommodate liveaboards. The council desired to preserve the local liveaboard community, but not necessarily expand it, according to Bauer. “The project is intended to help to sustain the legacy community of longterm, liveaboard residents that contribute in a variety of ways to the community’s
character,” Bauer said. “The project also aims to develop standards for the liveaboards that will improve compliance with sanitation and other state regulations, thus improving environmental conditions in the harbor.” Bauer also said that with a more organized approach to the open water marina — and support of the liveaboard community that utilizes it — will make it more accessible for harbor residents and encourage more short-term visitors to the marina facility. It will also help the state and city identify compliant and noncompliant vessels. The city expects to be working with the council in 2012 to form policies that will manage the open water marina and its ongoing leases. Eagle Harbor has historically been the setting for a liveaboard community at Bainbridge Island — a factor that the hearing examiner noted in his conclusion as “an unusual historical use that does not fit neatly
into a common regulatory pigeonhole.” People living on their boats in the harbor dates back around 100 years, according to Paul Svornich, who was a member of the liveabaord community for 30 years. He has been a local advocate for liveabaords while in the harbor, and continues to support them. “It was a vibrant community with families and every walk of life but now it is a remnant of that community,” Svornich said. “For most people on the island I believe it is a wonderful, unique representation of a lifestyle that is truly sustainable with an extremely small environmental footprint.” Things have changed since the days when families could drop anchor in the harbor as they pleased. In 2002, the DNR created a rule to allow liveaboards only in areas managed by municipalities. Bainbridge Island stepped up and has since been crafting a structure to accommodate liveaboard vessels.

were also missing. Bauer said that Hendrickson’s missing keys were not reported “for months,” after which the police station had to be entirely rekeyed and new keys were made for all staff. Hendrickson also has raised the issue that the S/ CE is not the only corner of the city dealing with unorganized files. She produced an email sent in April from Senior Executive Secretary Kate Brown, who asked if the CSC had application files on five hired officers. She said that she was able to find three, but did not have records on two officers, including Benkert. Hendrickson said she asked to inventory the files before leaving the position, but said that she was denied. “I don’t know how Ms. Hendrickson could have inventoried civil service files at the end of her tenure, since she did not have an account of the files under her control from when she started,” Bauer said.

Island hosts weekend of art, wine, Bloedel village tours By CONNIE MEARS Staff Writer
Between the Downtown First Friday Art Walk, the 28th annual Winter Studio Tour, Christmas in the Country, winemakers’ tour and the opening weekend of Bloedel’s second annual Miniature Village and Railroad exhibit, the island was busy hosting both locals and visitors from near and far. The 28th annual Winter Studio Tour Dec. 2-4 featured more than 70 artists in 10 artists’ studios and community halls for the free self-guided tour. For information, visit www.bistudiotour.com. Christmas in the Country added two new venues, Wacky Nut Farm and Esther’s Fabrics in downtown Winslow. Winslow had even more traffic with the Winery Alliance of Bainbridge Island (WABI) hosting a winemakers’ weekend, which includes downtown tasting rooms of Island Vintners, Eagle
Harbor Wine Co. and Eleven Winery. To learn more, and to see the schedule for future winemaker tours, visit www. bainbridgewineries.com. Last year’s Bloedel Reserve’s Miniature Village and Railroad exhibit drew record crowds for the month of December. This year’s opening day half-price admission event drew more than 450 people, said the Reserve’s Program and Communications Director Kate Gormley. “We had a steady flow of all ages. It was such a beautiful day,” Gormley said. The Reserve expanded the popular tour of miniature houses adding four additional structures and two more trains. The exhibit was reconfigured to accommodate the unexpectedly high volume of traffic that showed up last year. “The entire bottom floor is devoted to the exhibit this year,” she said. “There’s more
light and more room.” The holiday calendar continues this week with Bainbridge Chorale’s annual Christmas concert, Peace and Joy, a Christmas Celebration” at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 10 and 3:30 p.m. Dec. 11 at Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church.

IN OUR OPINION
What’s next for council? Goodbye water, for one
f one can believe the campaign rhetoric offered by three – Steve Bonkowski, Sarah Blossom and Dave Ward – of the four islanders who will be sworn in early next month as members of the City Council, the city is in for an abrupt change in the way it does business. New councilor Anne Blair may also join the swing away from the current council’s leadership style, but she may be resistant to a fixed agenda to begin her four-year term. The four members who have dominated the council during the last two years will be reduced to Bob Scales and Kirsten Hytopoulos, each of whom have served as mayor pro-tem for a year. And there appears to be a good chance that Debbi Lester, the third remaining sitting council member, leans more toward the incoming trio than Scales and Hytopoulos. So what will happen? For one, let’s hope the new council will quickly put the Civil Service Commission and Ethics Board controversies in the rearview mirror. What a waste of time and energy those have been for the city. The focus needs to be on regaining the trust and involvement of the community, which was supposed to be the primary thrust with the approval of a council-manager form of government. Unfortunately, Scales has acted for two years like the mayor he has always wanted to be, rather than just one of seven council members working openly to come to a consensus. Other than the possibility of new leadership changes in the city administration, likely the first move will be to transfer the water utility to the Kitsap Public Utility District. The council has approved the Utility Advisory Committee’s recommendation to keep the utility and decrease the Winslow ratepayers fees by 45 percent. But the UAC can revisit the action next year if necessary. Prior to the vote, Bonkowski disagreed with the current council by making it clear he favored transferring the utility, and it appears there are at least three others who agree with him. It may be the first of many shots across the bow as the new council takes over.

LETTERS Kindness to a stranger
Being a recipient from a stranger is inspirational About six or seven years ago I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The disease has progressed to the point where it is difficult for me to put groceries in my car or open doors. It is not the purpose of this letter to talk about MS, but rather to express by gratitude for the kindness I have been shown. More times than I can count, perfect strangers have asked me if they can help. Not once has anyone asked for anything in return. Their motivation has seemed to be showing kindness to a stranger for no other reason than to show kindnesss. The kindness I have been shown has been an inspiration to me. It has shown me that there is within people a source of goodwill and a willingness to help simply because when there is a need to be met the thing to do is to meet the need. People smile when they stop. They seem to get satisfaction from showing kindness simply for the sake of showing kindness. I am more grateful than words can tell. I would thank each of these people by name, only I don’t know their names. To all these people, I want you to know how grateful I am for your kindness and what an inspiration you are to me. Stephen Ekholm Bainbridge Island
Cartoon’s criticism of police is not amusing I was disappointed to see the
Nov. 25 editorial cartoon by Bruce Pritchard, lampooning the police response to the “occupy” protests. Perhaps you think it amusing to criticize the police for wearing protective equipment when dealing with potentially dangerous protestors. It is evident that you consider all of the protestors to be peaceloving youths who would never hurt a fly, let alone engage in acts of violence and vandalism. It must therefore come as a shock to you that police officers throughout this country (including six WSP troopers on Nov. 29 in Olympia) have been injured during these protests. The actions of some of these protestors are criminal in nature, are certainly not amusing, and in that light your cartoon is clearly immature and vindictive. A more thoughtful response would actually have you praise the numerous police departments throughout this nation for their generally calm and professional actions during these events. Regardless of one’s political affiliations, we should all be grateful to live in a nation under the rule of law, rather than subject to the whims of an unruly mob. James Guzzwell Bainbridge Island
Mayor’s leadership led to ‘right-thinking action’ Something profound happened at the City Council meeting on Nov. 30 during consideration of Resolution No. 2011-26, amending the Ethics Code, AB11-017. Mayor Hytopoulos led the council, and the public, through a highly
charged atmosphere to the classical “right thinking” (open, clear and with goodwill) necessary to finding “right action” for the “public good.” A teachable moment embraced during, appropriately, the always messy terrain of ethical public discourse: politics as it is meant to be practice. Mary Jacobs Bainbridge Island
Council has the money to make road repairs I do not understand how our council can in one breath state that the difficult decisions have put our city’s finances in order, with cuts saving up $5 million; and then in the next breath, state that we don’t have the $1.2 million in funds needed to fix our roads. Excuse my confusion, but it sure seems like we do have those funds, without any new bond offer or tax increase. Or is that rainy day fund solely for legal expenses enforcing shoreline rules, wine-making ordinances, holiday decorations for Winslow Way, or other efforts far higher in importance than a usable road system? Or perhaps the prime use of those savings is the circular logic of improving the city’s credit rating, allowing for a lower interest rate when borrowing funds via bond offerings, to spend on programs which were cut in order to create the pool of savings? Council, please save us all the time and expense of voting on a bond offer, of reading and writing letters like this, and for once and henceforth fund the line item in the budget that says “road repairs.” Michael ‘Luni’ Libes Winslow

Letters Public farmland
Need answers prior to signing a lease
Edward Cannard Winslow
Lease payments should increase I appreciate that it has taken many years to come to the place where the city can actually lease the city farm lands to the farmers. I applaud the effort made by all parties. However, I don’t support a $1/year lease for 30 years. I don’t support that the farmers on city property have an economic advantage over their private counterparts where that advantage is funded by the community at large. Starting at $1/year is OK, but this rate needs to be increased to full-lease payments returned to the city – less FOF lease management fees. I believe that after about five years the FOF should receive 20 percent (more typical lease management fees) of the lease payment and the rest returned to the city. That way, the FOF farmers would be paying market rates for the farm land, not getting any more “free” improvements. At that time, FOF farmers would be competing with the private farmers on equal ground. I believe that such a change in language could have been introduced and the lease still approved in a timely manner. Steve Bonkowski Councilor-elect
Files missing before hiring In last week’s paper, you ran a story reporting a statement by City Manager Brenda Bauer that civil service files are “missing,” and that these files are missing because I mishandled them as the commission’s secretary/examiner. Further, according to your story, one of the missing files contains important docu-

Another success for the community Helpline House wishes to extend our great appreciation to the greater Bainbridge Island community for helping make this year’s Project Wishbone such a very meaningful contribution to our community. Over 175 families were given supplies to help prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for their families, in addition to regular food bank services for others. Many organizations and individuals donated supplies and time. We first wish to thank our volunteers who sorted and organized food. And we’d like to give thanks to the many organizations and individuals in our community who donated food and/or time to provide
Thanksgiving to others. Wishbone donors included people from every walk of life. One family alone purchased more than $1,700 of food and delivered it to our doors. Churches and faith communities, as well as several youth groups, also delivered Thanksgiving food with great joy. With funds raised from its congregation, a member of St. Barnabas purchased several deliveries of fresh produce and other items we ran short
of on donation Saturday. Several service organizations such as Rotary and Kiwanis donated, as well as many other clubs and neighborhood groups. Boy Scout troop 1496 did our fresh food drive at Safeway and many school groups contributed as well. Most notably BHS and Ordway, which had all-school food drives, had a bus driver even organizing the children to each bring a can of food. The staff of several island
nonprofits, including the library, brought in bundles of fresh herbs as part of their donation. Plus, many anonymous people also participated in making this Thanksgiving a very special holiday for so many families who are struggling to make ends meet here on our island. We thank you for your continued support of Project Wishbone. Robin Denis, Project Wishbone volunteer for Helpline House

I am a long-time resident of Bainbridge Island, and for nearly 20 years I have managed a community peapatch in conjunction with Eagle Harbor Congregational Church. As a result, I am very interested in the issues related to the use of the publicly owned farmland that is being managed by Friends of the Farms. The proposal presented to the City Council by the Friends of the Farm’s Ryan Vancil needs some close scrutiny. First of all, this land was purchased by the taxpayers to hold for public benefit. The proposal would essentially tie up this land for the lifetime of those of us currently living on the island. The proposed lease converts this public land to private use for a few farmers who are a part of the Friends of the Farms organization, while excluding many other possible users and uses. The proposed payment to the city of $1 per year is likely to be construed by a court as gifting public land for a private purpose, inasmuch as the farmers who are benefitting from the subleases are making money from the land, even though Friends of the Farms is a nonprofit organization. It has had some time to prove that the current leasing system works, and has failed to do so. Where is the money due to the public coffers from the continued profitable use of this land by the farmers who are allowed to work on it? How is the organization’s board not to be seen as selfserving when its membership is granted to potential leasees of the public land? In turn, these board members can determine which other farmers can utilize the land, in effect, giving control over possible competition to existing farmers. There are many questions that need to be addressed by the city prior to modifying the current agreement, which runs for two more years. During this time, the community needs to be included in discussions of the future of this valuable public land. In addition to determining who should be farming the land, and for whose benefit, there are many issues, including: fair market value; returns to the city from profits generated by the use of this land; how this land fits into a system of food secu-
rity for Bainbridge; what sort of management agreement is needed between the two; how the use of the public land is determined in the future; and criteria to determine who is eligible to farm this land. In other words, there are way too many unanswered issues for the city to move ahead with this proposed lease at this time. Just because our citizens support farmland is no reason to give “friends” carte blanche as to the management of this public land.
ments about Jeff Benkert, the officer who fatally shot Douglas Ostling. This is an extremely serious allegation, and a response is needed. I would like to bring the following facts to your readers’ attention: The Bainbridge Island Civil Service Commission does not keep much in the way of documents on police department employees. It keeps, at best, city applications and some testing material. Detailed personnel files about officers – background checks, psychological exams, performance reviews, disciplinary actions – are kept by the police department, not the commission. Civil service commission files were not inventoried when I arrived, and they were accessible to people outside the civil service commission. In April, I was informed in writing, by the city administration, that part of Officer Benkert’s file was missing from the city’s filing system. It is highly unlikely that both city hall and civil service would be missing copies unless the file was handled improperly at the time of application, which was years before I took my position. In sum: I inherited noninventoried files in a filing cabinet with shared keys. The file the city manager “discovered” as missing was reported missing, months ago, by one of her employees. The suggestion that anything went “missing” on my watch is not supported by the facts, and the record needs to be corrected.

Whatever color, Christmas light keeps shining Christmas comes in many colors. There is Black Friday for shopping. We will sing about silver bells and rednosed reindeers, and white Christmas snows. Many of us are meant to be green with envy over possible gifts we could receive or purchase and all are urged to take our credit cards into the red to make it a Jolly Christmas. But others will be mostly blue for Christmas, blue because of worry over hard economic times, blue for the losses of our lives, and blue because the reality we live is never quite the expected jollity of advertising and media hype. Elvis sang about a “Blue Christmas” because of lost love but many of us will face Christmas with blue memories and sad hearts for a myriad of reasons. Those of us in the helping profession learn early that all holidays bring mixed emotions for people, and not everyone finds Christmas to be merry or the holidays to be happy. Many people retreat into depression, abuse alcohol or drugs, or simply try to shut out all that enforced hilarity that fills our airwaves and plagues their hearts. So, at Saint Barnabas, we will be wearing blue for Advent as part of our preparation for Christmas. But we wear blue not just to remind us that, for some, this is not a time of unrestrained joy but rather a time of sorrow and loss. We wear blue to show love and support for those who feel so little of it in their lives. We wear blue to remind ourselves that there is still great poverty, great want, and far too little peace for so many in

We will wear blue as Mother Teresa wore blue, finding our Calcutta as she found hers. But, we will also wear blue to remind us of that improbable story of a young woman who said “yes” to God. We will wear blue to remind us that there is a way forward, that promises will be kept, and that hope never dies. We will wear blue to remind ourselves that others have faced great difficulties in their day and that far too few Christmases have occurred in times of peace and plenty. But they all celebrated this long-expected yet stillsurprising event. So unlike what the world calls great moments, they celebrated as we celebrate the ordinary but yet astonishing birth of a child. The world is not only what we see and know; there is still great mystery to marvel over; there is still greatness to come. Christmas comes in many colors; Christmas bears many faces. The light comes; let us rejoice; God reaches out to us through the arms of a baby. The Rev. Dr. Dennis S. Tierney is pastor of the Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church on Bainbridge Island.

writers cooperative announces new book Tuesday Night Publishing, an effort of the 13-year-old Speculative Fiction Writers Cooperative which meets at Eagle Harbor Book Co., has released its third anthology, “Penumbra.” Following in the vein of the previous two, “Off the Ecliptic” and “Oliquity,” the third title speaks of the “the partially shaded outer region of the shadow cast by an opaque object.” The call for submissions went out last year for works in the genres of fantasy, science-fiction, magical realism, surrealism, horror, alternative history, steampunk, new weird and modern myth. The anthology, guest edited by Cat Rambo describes “Penumbra” as having the willingness to entertain the wacky or strange – to accept that one’s taxidermist has been abducted by aliens, that military troops are occupying Bainbridge Island, or that an elevator can carry one sideways to find true love.” The book is available at Eagle Harbor Books.

Women’s fashion makes an appearance Runway show offers a glimpse of new store at Island Gateway. By DENNIS ANSTINE Staff Writer
And now, it can be said, Bainbridge Island has had its own invitation-only fashion show. With more to come. There was nothing too fancy about last Friday’s Island Gateway event, which served as an entrée to the opening of a new women’s clothing store Saturday in the new development off Winslow Way. The store is named Aloisa by Kristin Ryann Vogt – after the owner and a line of women’s clothing she will be introducing, along with several other collections. Vogt has owned a women’s clothing store in Poulsbo for four years, but moved to Bainbridge three years ago with the goal of “bringing fashion forward” on the island.
The new 1,000-squarefoot store will offer “clothing that’s a little more hip and not everyday wear,” she said. “We will have some clothes for high school girls, but the market is mainly aimed at women 18 to 50.” Vogt said she enjoyed the Poulsbo store, which is a small boutique that emphasizes casual wear. But she plans to close the Poulsbo store in January in order to focus on her new project. “This has been my goal for some time,” said Vogt, who has lived in Kitsap for 11 years. “My dad was in textiles and I grew up in the industry.” She had the opportunity to learn the business first hand and designed her own clothing line as a young woman living in Sarasota, Fla. She put her passion behind her for many years “and did the family thing, but with the children now old enough, it was time for me to get back into it,” she said. Her opener drew about 100 people, including existing clientele, community acquaintances and a list of former

customers. Since many of the people knew each other, the groundfloor room of the middle building was loud with laughter and chatter as people moved freely before, during and after the show, which ran for about 20 minutes. “The intent was to show people where we are going with the new business,” she said. “We want to be inclusive of the community and for people to be excited about what we are doing. We will have another show with a spring collection.” Vogt said she is well aware of other women clothiers on Bainbridge Island and is determined not be a direct competitor with them. “We’re going in our own direction just like most people do,” she said. “We are not trying to compete with others on the island. In most instances we won’t be carrying the same lines that others do.” The store will be open six days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., though Vogt is still undecided on what day the store will be closed.
Business Briefing Winslow Way has many new faces The women’s clothing store, Aloisa, is one of several enterprises that have opened in recent weeks on the island’s main street, which seems to have made it through the construction period intact – more or less. Hitchcock’s Delicatessen & Charcuterie opened two weeks ago next to the restaurant ... Bainbridge Arts & Crafts has a new auxiliary space next to Emmie’s Veggie House ... Furnish Bainbridge is a new home furnishing store on the corner of Ericksen Avenue ... Pop Up Toys offers gadgets for the hip, located on Madrone Lane. Speaking of The Lane and the surrounding area, Paperoost’s doors have been busy lately and Salt & Sea Vintage Home has found a home next to Blackbird Bakery, which continues to pack ‘em in every day of the week.

orness likes what he sees
Veteran coach is pleased with team’s progress. By WILLIE WENZLAU For the Review
The Bainbridge High boys varsity basketball team had a successful week, with improved play leading to victories both at home and on the road. The Spartans (3-1) opened the week at home Monday with 70-59 non-conference victory over Central Kitsap and enjoyed its Metro League debut Tuesday with a 71-56 win at Bishop Blanchet. Head coach Scott Orness said he is pleased with his team’s progress four games into the season. “We are continuing to develop,” Orness said, “and they are starting to understand what it takes to be a good team.” This year has seen a few changes for the Spartans, starting with Orness implementing completely new
offensive and defensive systems as he begins his second tour with the varsity after taking a break for three years. He feels that his team is adjusting well to the changes. Orness identified the team as guard-heavy and claims this as one of its biggest strengths along with the players’ agility, ball control and shooting skills. “My focus has always been to simply get better every day,” said Orness. “Right now we are focusing on the details that will elevate our team. That has been our biggest challenge so far; attention to detail.” The team has stepped up and shown that it is capable of playing hard and competing at a high level, but for Orness, playing hard is not necessarily enough. At times, he said, the team has a “tendency to ‘just play,’” which he hopes to eliminate from the team’s game through daily repetition in practice. “When we focus on the details and give 100 percent effort between the
lines, we are a tough team to deal with.” In Monday’s game against Central Kitsap, the Spartans showed some of the benefits of their newly adopted offensive and defensive styles of play. “We are starting to execute,” said Orness, “[and] we had a lot of guys contribute.” The boys play with adequate effort and energy, and must now polish their defensive transition and rebounding, he said. Two of the team’s key players during the two games were Rico Failla and Chris Bell. Failla, who is averaging 14.3 points per game, had a breakout week. He scored 22 points against Central Kitsap and followed up with 25 against Bishop Blanchet. Bell, averaging 20.5 points per outing, had led the Spartans in scoring in the first two games. He scored 17 points against Central Kitsap and 13 points in the win over Bishop Blanchet. The veteran coach also recognized a few other play-
ers as having played well in Monday’s game, including: • Michael Crowley’s job of running the offense from the point; • Oskar Dieterich’s defensive play; and • Blake Swanson draining a three-point shot in his varsity debut. The Spartans will play against West Seattle at Paski Gym this Friday, with a 6:15 p.m. tipoff, followed at 8 p.m. with the girls varsity game.

Frank Albert Peabody March 20, 1927 - November 20, 2011 Frank will be remembered for his dry wit, his love of nature, his fabulous huckleberry pies, his three excellent children, and his one fine grandson. Born in Forest Grove, OR and raised in Stayton, OR, he served in WWII, and was a graduate of the University of Oregon and NYU. Frank was a buyer for Frederick and Nelson from 1951 to 1980 and then retired to his beloved summer home on Bainbridge Island. He was predeceased by his parents John W. Peabody and Lucy Ebert Peabody and five brothers and sisters. Frank will be missed by Patricia, his wife of 51 years, son Daniel and grandson Dustin, of Mesa, AZ, daughter Melissa (Bear Dyson) of Seattle, WA, son William of Black Diamond, WA, sister Mary Ann Welter of Stayton, OR, and a host of nieces and nephews, especially Joe, Tina, Annie, Caleb, Ben, Cole and Dominick. The birds and wildlife he fed every day will miss him, too. A tree planting and party celebrating Frank’s life will be held in March 2012 on Bainbridge Island. Remembrances may be made to The Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy or KCTS Channel 9. Or take a walk on the Fairy Dell Trail, which he fought to preserve for public use.

Christopher Clark Morgan May 19, 1933 - November 19, 2011 Christopher Clark Morgan was born May 19, 1933 in Worcester, Massachusetts to Katharine Irving Clark and Vincent Morgan. He attended Oberlin College where he met and fell in love with a charming redhead, Josephine Rettie. Chris served in the Korean War from 195355 and did indeed marry Jo in 1955. After graduating from Oberlin, Chris and Jo moved to Eugene, Oregon where Chris attended the University of Oregon to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture. After graduation, he joined the architectural firm Balheiser, Rhodes and Smith, and later as partner, was asked to open the Seattle office. In 1968 he moved his family to Bainbridge Island, Washington. After working for the firm, Chris decided to open his own private practice on Bainbridge Island, designing homes in the Northwest Contemporary style. Later, he partnered with architect Richard Lindstrom who worked with him to design the Winslow Mall and numerous private homes including his own on Grand Avenue which was featured in “House Beautiful.” His partner’s home won an award from the American Institute of Architects and was featured in “Sunset Magazine.” His design of artist Jim Howell’s home on San Juan Island also won him some recognition. Always interested in new developments in materials and design, he built an energy efficient active and passive solar home at Bill Point in 1980. Many of his designs included innovations in green building. During the 1970s Chris served on the Kitsap County Planning Commission. Ever an entrepreneur and wine lover, he helped Jo open one of the Northwest’s earliest wine specialty stores, The Cork Shop, first next to the American Marine Bank, then later in the Winslow Mall. In 1980 he left his practice to teach at Washington State University (1980-81), during which time he also earned his Master’s in Architecture at the University of Idaho. After completing his Masters, Chris and Jo moved to the south, where Chris first taught architecture at Louisiana Tech (1981-1984) and then at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (1984-1998). At UNCC he was chair of the School of Architecture and helped lead the design process for a new Architecture building. Continuing his support of his wife’s artistic pursuits and entrepreneurial spirit, he also helped Jo open a weaving and knitting store called The Weavers Studio. He retired from UNCC to Bellingham in 1998, where he was very involved in the arts and community planning. Sailing was a lifelong passion. Chris spent his childhood summers sailing on Squibnocket Pond in Martha’s Vineyard, raced Six Meter boats in Puget Sound, crossed the Atlantic from Spain to Bermuda with a crew of three others on a 70’ Ketch, and took his family for vacations as far north as Desolation Sound. He loved being near the sea and vacationed habitually at Surfcrest – a comfortable hideaway in Copailis, Washington. The last five years were very eventful for Chris. In 2006 his older daughter gave him a kidney. A year later he replaced his right hip. And in 2009 he nearly lost his beloved Josephine to a stroke. The stroke left her unable to speak or write and without the use of her right hand. His life switched instantly from well-kept husband to constant caregiver to Jo, and in this role he was adept and devoted. His compassion for her challenges of speech loss and impaired mobility was bottomless. He would not leave her for more than a couple of hours, made sure her every need was met and showed perfect patience in working to understand what she tried so hard to express without words. Chris died November 19, 2011 from a head injury after a fall. He is survived by his sister Joan Anderson of Duxbury, Massachusetts, his wife of 56 years Jo Morgan, His daughters Elizabeth Morgan of Olympia (BHS ’79) and Pamela Jull of Bellingham (BHS ’81), their families which include his three grandchildren, Peter, Katharine and Natalie, and his sons in law, Garth Cowan and Burrell Jull, who treasured his friendship. Memorial donations may be made to The Whatcom Symphony Orchestra, www.whatcomsymphony.com and The Environmental Defense Fund, www.edf.org. Please see more about Chris’ life, share your memories of Chris and sign the online guest book at www.molesfuneralhomes.com. A party to celebrate Chris’ life will be held at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal on Monday eve, December 19th from 5:30-8 p.m. Bring your spirited stories, brief toasts and love to share. Another party is being planned for later in 2012 on Bainbridge. TRIBUTE Paid Notice
Friday, December 9, 2011 • Bainbridge Island Review
FYI POLICE BLOTTER Bainbridge Police reported the following incidents:
Dec. 1 12:41 p.m. Someone came aboard the Bainbridge Island Rowing coaching launch, cut the fuel line and took the gas tank. The launch was moored to the rental barge at the public dock at Waterfront Park. Dec. 2 1:36 p.m. A woman living on Foster Road reporting that an unknown man had knocked on her door, and then moments later attempted to enter her home through a window on the side of the house. The woman confronted the man, who claimed he was looking for his lost dog and soon fled the residence. The suspect, according to woman, was 5-foot 10-inches tall, medium build, white or Hispanic in his 30s with a mustache and wearing a
stocking cap. Dec. 3 9:23 a.m. A house on Justin Court was burglarized when suspect(s) broke the lock on a bathroom window and entered the home. The resident noticed items in the home that were moved upon arriving home. Two watches were stolen. Dec. 4 11:15 a.m. Mail was stolen from numerous mail boxes on Euclid Avenue. The boxes were all attached to a rod, with some of them locked while other were unlocked. Pedestrians found remnants of the mail for one owner, including credit card applications, personal checks, and bills, and returned them to him. Other residents weren’t home at the time and were notified that their mail may have been stolen. 8:43 p.m. Neighbors living in an apartment complex on Shannon Drive had a noise dispute that eventually resulted in a physical fight. A couple told police that they have had regular complaints from a neighbor living
www.BaInBRIDgeRevIew.com directly beneath them. Upon taking out the garbage, the man was confronted by the downstairs neighbor, who he claims came at him with fists raised. The man swung at his downstairs neighbor striking him in the face. After hitting his neighbor, the man went inside and called police. The downstairs neighbor is pressing assault charges. Dec. 5 9:24 a.m. A couple on Killdeer Lane had planned on having a garage sale but cancelled it. They placed an advertisement on Craigslist but soon canceled it. They left some items in their driveway that were for sale and others that were not, contained in boxes or covered by blankets. Others were in a shed and in the car port. The morning of the canceled garage sale, they heard people outside and saw some of them putting boxes into a truck. They asked the people to leave. The couple called police when some people continued rummaging through their goods. Many items not intended for
sale were taken, including a laptop and camera as well as boxes for storage containing family heirlooms such as World War II medals from relatives. 7:02 p.m. A house on Miller Road was broken into and items were stolen. The front door of the residence was left unlocked when the resident left for work that day. Upon returning home, she noticed that items were missing from the home and other items were moved. The stolen items included an Apple iPad, a gold engagement ring, gold wedding band, two gold necklaces with diamonds. The total estimated value of the items is $3,600. Dec. 6 1:45 p.m. Documents were randomly left in the Bainbridge Public Library’s drop box. Police took them into evidence, but It is uncertain from where the documents came. They smelled heavily of smoke and involved Internet searches of electronics and women in fashion poses and other miscellaneous information. The
documents were not threatening, police said. 2:02 p.m. Police ran a man’s license plate and found that the tabs on the vehicle he was driving on Shannon Drive had expired in 2009, though the tabs indicated 2012. The man said he had just purchased the vehicle but didn’t have the sale receipt or insurance with him. The man’s license was also suspended. The tab was traced to a woman’s vehicle that was registered in Bremerton. The woman knew the driver and said he had done work on
her vehicle, but was unable to fix it entirely so it was towed away and scrapped. 7:43 p.m. A High School Road business had $100 stolen from the cash register and $75 from the safe. The theft occurred between closure of the business the previous night between 9:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. Police said the till had a key in it and the safe is kept unlocked. Numerous people have keys and access to the business, and a former employee could have made a duplicate.

ENERGY CHAMPION PROGRESS REPORT THE RUFFING FAMILY What energy-efficiency improvements have you made since your Energy Champion profile last spring? We are still enjoying the earlier upgrades we made in the spring—a programmable thermostat, water heater wrap, ENERGY STAR ® appliances, and weatherstripping— they work wonders.
Have you noticed any changes in comfort or energy costs? We used to stand outside and feel the heat pour through the walls and doors of our house. That doesn’t happen anymore. What a major difference a few minor changes make! We expect to see much lower energy bills this winter.
Did you receive an incentive for your improvements? We save all our receipts to apply for the federal tax credits on self-installed weatherization. We’ll apply for RePower Bainbridge and Puget Sound Energy incentives, and RePower Rewards when we upgrade additional areas of our home.
What’s your next step to increased energy efficiency? We’ll start out with more insulation which I can install myself and receive a tax credit. We also want to install a new heat pump or hearth in early 2012 and have received quotes from a RePower trade ally.

Back to a time before gift receipts or songs like “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer.” Back to a Christmas when it was a real treat to roast chestnuts and sing yuletide carols.

Continued from page 1 camp, incorporates history into the evening. Instead of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” the Kitsap Kickers will teach guests dances like the Virginia reel. If so inclined, folks are encouraged to dress like people did in the 1850s (give or take a few decades). After dancing and socializing, the event will move to the dining room for an authentic pioneer, family-style Christmas feast, complete with roast beef, roasted root vegetables, homemade biscuits, clam chowder and berry desserts. Back in the day, the food served was seasonal and local. Oranges and lobsters weren’t trucked in from long distances. After the meal, living history presenter Tames Alan will discuss examples of what Christmas was like in the 1850s. She’ll use three contrasting Christmas trees to illustrate her lesson. The Victorian tree, with its glass ornaments and candles, represents what Christmas was like back in New York and Boston. They celebrated Christmas more lavishly than their relatives who headed west.

trees were often adorned with popcorn or cranberries, a tradition that wasn’t continued out west. That’s food, for goodness sake! And local fire marshals, fear not — this sample tree will not use real candles. Many a home burned down from the candles on Christmas trees. In the Midwest, a community tree was placed at the local church. These “giving trees,” as they were called, were decorated not with ornaments but with
gifts sent from a sister church back east. A secondhand winter coat, for example, would be given to a child who had none. In the plains, a Christmas tree might consist of a simple mesquite branch decorated with hair ribbons. Packaged under the tree would be handmade gifts like a pair of knitted socks. “When you live in a oneroom cabin that is not very big, trying to make gifts for your family without them
knowing about it required a great deal of ingenuity,” Alan said. “Everything was handmade.” If the man were a hunter, he would save antlers to carve into knife handles or buttons. Wives made shirts for their husbands using old flour sacks. And, glory be!, the entire family would rejoice over a gift of a new wooden chair. “Think about the travel space these people had,” Alan said. “They couldn’t bring much with them.”

So in 160 years from now, how will folks celebrate a 2011 Christmas? It’s hard to say, but surely this year will go down in the history books as the year Black Friday began on Thursday.
Christmas Tree Sales at Morales Farm
After packing the required tools for the trip out west, there wasn’t ample room for extras. Alan said the Christmas meal was often more important than the gifts. Families back east sent care packages of food to their pioneering relatives via the train. Unfortunately, heavy snows often delayed the trains, thus postponing the holiday meal. Sometimes families had to wait until March to receive their bounty. But because the food was stored in a noninsulated boxcar on the train, it stayed frozen and didn’t spoil. While telling her stories, Alan will be dressed in period-appropriate clothing depicting what a pioneer woman wore. She refers to herself as a one-woman show: she sews her own costumes (with the exception of her corsets and hats), researches the subject matter and writes her own scripts. “My core mission in life is to teach tolerance,” she said. “I try to show people what life was like in another time — no matter how weird it seems to us — so they can have more tolerance for things that are different in their own lives.” And what would people

Winemaker remains dedicated despite cancer NW WINES
BY ANDY PERDUE AND ERIC DEGERMAN
Wine Press Northwest
inemakers throughout the Pacific Northwest struggled with weather during this fall’s trying harvest, but the winemaker for Willamette Valley Vineyards had a much bigger battle: cancer. Forrest Klaffke has been with the Turner, Ore., winery for 18 years and led the winemaking efforts for the past decade. “He’s an amazing guy,” said Jim Bernau, CEO and founder of Willamette Valley Vineyards. “He’s a remarkable team member who has incredible dedication. He’s the first one here in the morning and the last one to leave.” That didn’t change this year during harvest, even though Klaffke has a huge fight on his hands. The aggressive form of cancer he successfully defeated a few years ago came back with a vengeance in September. It started in his throat and has
now spread to four areas of his body, including his brain. He’s been through surgeries, radiation treatments and chemotherapy to try to keep it at bay. Winemakers are famous for dedication to their craft, but Klaffke took that to an entirely different level this fall. When he knew grapes were going to come in, he would actually cancel his chemo treatments so he could give the finicky Pinot Noir grapes all the attention they demand. “He just has an incredible, passionate dedication to this vineyard and to his work,” Bernau said with endearment and awe. And Klaffke, who grew up in Sacramento and worked in the California wine industry before coming north to Oregon in the 1990s, is making some of the finest wines of his career. We recently tasted through his most recent
Pinot Noirs, and they are uniformly superb. Willamette Valley Vineyards’ wines are broadly available, though the singlevineyard Pinot Noirs are made in limited quantities. Check with your favorite wine merchant or call the winery directly at (800) 344-9463. And let’s all raise a glass to salute Klaffke and his dedication to the grape. ■ Willamette Valley Vineyards 2009 Elton Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $45. This superior Pinot Noir opens with aromas of raspberries, Rainier cherries, pineapples, violets and strawberries. On the palate, this is a gentle and elegant wine with flavors of white strawberries, raspberries and cherries. It’s tempting to drink this wine now, but as delicious as it is, it’s likely to develop into something even greater. ■ Willamette Valley Vineyards 2009 Pinot
Despite his cancer battle, Forrest Klaffke remains active in the art of winemaking.
Wine Press Northwest / Contributed
Noir, Willamette Valley, $28. This opens with classic aromas of raspberries, strawberries, pie cherries and mushrooms, with just a hint of orange blossoms. On the palate, this is an elegant wine from first sip, with flavors of vanilla, Rainier cherries, cranberries, Marionberries and chocolate. With 18,000 cases produced, this should be easy to find. ■ Willamette Valley
Vineyards 2010 Whole Cluster Fermented Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $20. In the Pacific Northwest, this is about as close as we come to a Beaujolais Nouveau style of wine. Every year, this Oregon giant produces a youthful Pinot Noir — the first it releases from each vintage — that is made using a method called carbonic maceration. This means the juice is fermented primarily while it is still
inside the grape, before the fruit is crushed. The resulting wine is lower in tannin and higher in fruit. That’s certainly the case with this delicious wine, which shows off aromas of strawberry candy, cinnamon, apricots and black currants. On the palate, this reveals invigorating flavors of strawberries, cherries, cranberries and red raspberries. It’s a great introduction to Pinot Noir — because of the flavors and the price. ■ Willamette Valley Vineyards 2009 Estate Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $40. Of Willamette Valley Vineyards’ seven new Pinot Noirs we tasted, this was the biggest and boldest entry. It opens with rich aromas of cedar, strawberries, red currants, cola and baked apples with cinnamon. On the palate, it starts with an easy approach of raspberries, cranberries and chocolate, then is large and in charge on the finish with robust tannins. — Andy Perdue and Eric Degerman are the editors of Wine Press Northwest.

Consider light fare for full guests Dear Erin, Traditionally we’ve had a sit-down Christmas dinner at our home. Now our children have grown and married and have several homes to visit on Christmas. Is it appropriate to change the meal style from a traditional sit-down to an open buffet, say from 1-3 p.m.?
— Burning my Biscuits in Bremerton Dear Burning, By all means, yes! In fact, I encourage you to think even further outside of the box. Of course, I realize you want to see your children on Christmas Day, but instead of a full-blown meal, you could just have hors d’oeuvres or
dessert. I bet your children would appreciate not being required to sit down to two (or more) elaborate meals on Christmas Day. If you wish to stick with a full meal, you could alternate years. Odd years you have a buffet, even years you have the traditional sitdown affair. I’m sure your family would rather spend quality
time with you on Christmas Day than have you wear yourself out preparing a meal that they aren’t even hungry to eat. Because when it comes down to it, how many servings of turkey and ham can one person eat in a day? I know that traditions aren’t easy to change. But ask yourself, “Is this working for everyone involved?” If the answer is no, than explore your options. And remember, it’s your holiday too. ■
Dear Erin, Should men still open
ASK ERIN By ERIN JENNINGS doors (car, house, restaurant, any old door) for women in today’s world? — Mannered in Manchester Dear Mannered, I think the polite thing to do is to open doors for any-
one, regardless of gender. If you are able-bodied and are the first to the door, open it and hold it open for others. When I hold open a door and a male is one of the people for whom I’m opening it, he will often insist on holding it for me. And that’s nice. And sweet. And I don’t take it as a slap in the face of women’s lib. As for opening car doors, there isn’t anything wrong in doing so. But I sure haven’t noticed this practiced very frequently, except in old movies. I wonder if the advent of remote-control door locks has made this a tradition of the past?

The first guy who wore red and white Editor’s note: This is part two of a four-part series by local writer Ron Corcoran. By RON CORCORAN SPECIAL TO KITSAP WEEK
or no reason or explanation ever found in Turkish archives, December was the generous man’s month of annual gifting. Some believe that Dec. 5 was his birthday. In any event, the tradition of annual gift-giving was born. Very little information has been discovered about Myra’s gifting-man except historians have postulated that, as a young student, he must have paid close attention to his school teachers, he must have performed all his assigned homework, and he must have achieved good grades. How else, the historians ask, could he have achieved the financial success that enabled him to be an annual gift-giver in his city? There are those who believe that this generous man, content with performing his good deeds, happily passed away in 346 AD. Others believe that the man, or at least his spirit,
is somehow still alive and well and living in northern Spain. Have you ever noticed that sometimes it is hard to know just what (or who) to believe? Therefore, as a public service to those who read this story, the author initiated his own search to find accurate and complete information regarding the folklore and traditions of annual gifting (and re-gifting) that would become such a significant part of our holiday traditions. The best information source found was in the country of the Netherlands, where catacombs, archives, and knowledge repositories were accessed for as much Christmas gifting history as could be discovered. Historically, the Dutch are a very generous people. Who else do you know who would stick their finger into a hole in a leaking dike to prevent a major flood? The Dutch truly loved the story of the gifting man from Myra, Turkey. So much so they adopted the man’s life story and incorporated his generous traditions into their own annual Winter Festival
celebrations. The Dutch believe — and justifiably so — the gifting man from Myra was named Nicholas and that he continued his annual generosity to the needy citizens of his city for many years. They also believe Nicholas was eventually sainted for his generosity and largesse. Accordingly, in the lexicon of mid-11th century Dutch language, the sainted man from Myra named Nicholas became known in the Netherlands as “Sinterklaas.” Does the name Sinterklaas sound somewhat familiar? Once the man had become duly sainted, Dutch legend describes how Sinterklaas really began to “get into character.” The saint reportedly adorned himself in a baggy white tunic under a large red cape and a tall red mitre (i.e. the ceremonial headgear of cardinals, bishops, and other clergy). He also
December 10 & 11
complemented this unique attire by wearing highlypolished leather riding boots. (Author’s note: Today, if Sinterklaas was in the checkout line of a local grocery store, he would draw nods, winks and admiring glances. Just like the ladies from the Red Hat Society do.) Sinterklaas eventually began using a walking stick that was a tall, gold-plated crosier with a fancy curled top, much like that of a shepherd’s staff used to get the attention of wayward sheep. (Author’s note: In later years, a crosier with a hook on top became useful for yanking off of a stage poorly-performing contestants during talent contests, vaudeville shows, or community theater.) — Next week: The chimney sweeps.
