City codes threaten winery




Other wineries could be one complaint away from same threat. By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer

Over the last few weeks Jim Wilford has been crushing and pressing grapes in his driveway to make this year's vintage of Fletcher

Bay wines. It's a hands-on process in which Wilford takes pleasure, whether he's selecting grapes or corking bottles. However, it's possible that vintage 2011 could be the last batch created by Fletcher Bay Winery. It's a chore he enjoys during the harvest season, but Wilford encountered a problem this year when a neighbor complained to the city that he was violating city codes. As a home-based

business in a residential area, city code requires that operations are conducted only indoors. This is a challenge for Wilford since there is little room indoors to crush and press grapes — a six-week process. "I love it, I enjoy providing good wine for people to drink," Wilford said. "... if we want to continue this, with restrictions on what these small wineries can do, there's just not going to be any. It will be a part of the

fabric of our community that will disappear." Wilford started Fletcher Bay Wines in 2008 after years of producing wine at home as a hobby, and he is not alone. Several other wineries have also emerged on the island — many home-based with varying indoor and outdoor operations — to form an industry that has become attractive to visitors. SEE WINERY, A5

The City Council approved a property tax increase on Monday, as well as a number of other items including the 2012 budget. The 1 percent increase to property taxes was unanimously approved by the City Council, and will go into effect Jan. 1, 2012. “An average Bainbridge homeowner, with a home worth about $500,000, pays roughly $5,000 in total property tax for all public agencies,” said council member Barry Peters. “The City’s 12 percent share of that is roughly $600. The one percent property tax modification therefore results in the average homeowner contributing about $6 more to the City next year.” Peters said that the city has an option every year to raise taxes by either 1 percent, or by the rate of inflation — which ever is least. He feels this is not enough. Many costs that the city faces are rising faster than inflation such as petroleum-based road resurfacing materials or medical insurance costs for employees who deliver city services. Peters cited a 2001 Tim Eyman ballot measure

(Initiative 747) that restricted cities from raising property taxes more than one percent. “Under the Eyman measure, the City’s property tax revenue can’t even keep up with inflation,” Peters said. “…the regional inflation rate for the past 12 months was 3.8 percent.” He further noted that the 1 percent raise is significantly small when compared to other recent voterapproved tax increases such as the bond measure for the reconstruction of Wilkes School, or almost doubling the tax rate for EMT services. The city’s 2012 budget was also passed by a 4-0 vote — with two council members not present and one, Debbi Lester, abstaining. “I abstained because although the administration had $1.5 million in reductions, they had $2 million in increases,” Lester said. “And another part that concerned me were those increases were primarily staff and professional service increases.” Lester also noted that all council members were not present to vote and she felt they should be on matters such as the budget. During discussion over the budget, council member Hilary Franz proposed an idea to help solve an lingering issue regarding permit fees for the current road SEE PROPERTY TAX, A3

AROUND THE ISLAND Prowlers strike unlocked vehicles A string of car prowls and thefts occurred in the Winslow residential area on the weekend of Nov. 19-20. Over Saturday night and Sunday morning, items were stolen out of six vehicles, all of which were unlocked, according to Bainbridge Police Cmdr. Sue Shultz. She added that some of the unlocked cars were left in unlocked garages attached to homes. The incidents all occurred in the residential area west of downtown Winslow, north and south of Wyatt Way, between Weaver Road and Madison Avenue. Thieves took valuables

ranging from cash, laptops, electronics, credit and bank cards, and anything containing information on victims’ accounts at financial institutions. One vehicle that was parked inside an apartment complex garage was also vandalized with black spray paint. “During the holiday season it is really important not to leave gifts or valuables in cars,” Shultz said. “Prowlers are looking for opportunities.” The car thefts are currently under investigation.

Five tons of food for Helpline House In the annual Bainbridge High School Key Club canned food drive to support Helpline House,

students donated 10,500 pounds of food, surpassing last year’s first-period class competition by 500 pounds. In the first-period competition between 10th grade students, Kim Koooistra’s English class was the big winner by donating 2,055 cans of food. The largest gift, however, included some 2,673 cans of salmon donated by Ocean Beauty Canned Seafood and transported by Hill Moving Company. Bainbridge High School student Ben Harmon organized and coordinated the donation. About 40 students worked the food drive by getting boxes, decorating the conference room

as an inspirational turkey, collecting cans from teachers’ classrooms,. Then came the fun part – loading, delivering and unloading the food from a U-Haul (donated by Bainbridge Storage) at Helpline House.

Still time to give to One Call One Call for All’s annual Red Envelope campaign continues to seek donations. One Call helps fund over 85 local non-profits. Donations can be made online or by mail. Go to to download the donation form or for more information.

BYS honors compassionate youth Island teens recognized for their community service work. By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer

Bainbridge Island teen Bella Crowley has been busy. Over the summer she volunteered at an orphanage in Rabat, Morroco. This was after she spent much of the year helping spread awareness for eating disorders. She also is the only teen board member of the Bainbridge Youth Services. However, she is not the only impressive teen the island can boast. She was just one of 52 Bainbridge Island teenagers honored last Sunday for their contributions to the community, and beyond, at the annual Compassionate Action Awards Celebration. The awards are organized by Bainbridge Youth

Bella Crowley speaks with Dr. Jillian Worth in a video she made for the national eating disorder awareness week in February. Services and are meant to highlight the compassionate acts teens on the island engage in that might otherwise go unnoticed. This is the 10th year the organization has recognized the accomplishments of island youth — 52 teens were honored this year alone for their contributions to the community. “We encourage nominators to look for volunteerism that shows a lot of hours, and something that goes beyond what is expected,” said Julie Marler, a board

member of the Bainbridge Youth Services. “It’s inspiring for kids to know what other kids are doing, and whatever you are interested in, you can find something to do (to contribute).” Honorable activities ranged from offering hundreds of volunteer hours to good causes such as the Boys and Girls Club, or raising money for cancer research. Teenagers are nominated by adults (other than family members) who have noticed their involvement and great works.

Honorees received a certificate and a special gift of a journal donated at cost to the organization from Eagle Harbor Books. “The kinds of activities they have done have connected them with people in our community, and we felt it needed to be acknowledged.” Marler said. “It comes from the heart and it’s things kids do because they are passionate about it.” Part of what Crowley was honored for was an educational video she made for the National Eating Disorder Awareness Week – an issue close to her heart and stems from her own struggles. The video was played at Bainbridge High School and featured Dr. Jillian Worth, a local physician who offered educated answers to help spread awareness of eating disorders. Marler said she made the video for the purpose of it being showed to students. “I sat down with her and asked her questions about eating disorders and trying

to ask them in a way that would lead to her areas of expertise, or things that I wouldn’t be able to articulate and she would be able to fill in,” Crowley said. “I got in touch with the vice principal (of BHS). One of the things she allowed me to do is get on the listserv email so I could send out the link to the Youtube video to all the teachers.” In addition, Crowley has rallied other support for the cause, and plans to lobby the State Legislature in support of insurance converge for eating disorders. “She is on fire,” Marler said. “She won’t brag, but she’s pretty impressive.” Bainbridge Youth Services began in 1962, and has since been providing free counseling to youth on the island. They also help teens find jobs and exercise leadership skills. For more information about Bainbridge Youth Services, visit

ing issue regarding permit fees for the current road ends project. The volunteer Road Ends Committee hasn’t been able to do any work on various road ends spanning the island due to permit fees the city is legally required to charge. Franz proposed that the city use interest earned from the $2 million the city received from a settlement with the Washington State Ferries to pay for the permits. Her proposal was approved by a 3-2 vote.

More than half of all Americans live less than 5 miles from where they work, according to Bicycling Magazine, and only 1.67 percent of Americans commute by bicycle.

felt by Winslow’s many restaurants, who all appreciate the increased foot traffic on tasting weekends.” The efforts of local wineries have proven to be successful drawing visitors to the island. In 2010, the Eleven Winery said it had approximately 10,000 paying visitors, while Eagle Harbor claims to have had 3,900 paying visitors walk into its tasting rooms on Winslow Way. Eagle Harbor winemaker Hugh Remash said the number is actually higher due to visitors to their winery on Sportsman Club Road who are not counted. Wilford’s tasting room, Island Vintners, opened its doors over the summer. “Right now there is quite a lot of square feet of office and retail space that are empty (downtown),” said Paul Bianchi of Amelia Wynn Winery. “But the tasting rooms remain open, so that’s got to say something.” Mackin said that recently a group of executives from GOOGLE came to the island over a weekend aiming to visit all the local wineries after their corporate meeting planner had read of the wineries in an article in Sunset Magazine. “As the profile of Bainbridge Island’s wine industry continues to rise, it helps increase the value of all sorts of lifestyle-related items such as land and housing,” Mackin said. “At this point, the island’s winemakers are doing more to help restart the local economy through the visitors and potential transplants that

than just about any other active effort.”

Codes for homebased wineries Minor home occupations Home-based wineries such as Fletcher Bay are considered minor home occupations; activity must be entirely indoors with no exterior indication of the business. Small-scale manufacturing Some wineries could operate in the light manufacturing zone on the island, but at an added expense many small wineries cannot afford. Agriculture (crop, processing or retail) Artisan wineries cannot operate under the island’s agricultural codes as they would be required to produce their product with primarily island-grown crops (generally over 50 percent).

Road repair? Yes, but let’s fix financial potholes first


recent story in another newspaper said the City Council was “proposing” taking a bond levy to voters in November 2012 for the purpose of upgrading the island’s deteriorating road system. In fact, while some members of the current council have actually discussed such a bond measure with a collective straight face, the only actual consideration in front of council has been whether or not to place funds in next year’s budget to pay for the development of such an election. How considerate of them. Just in case the four new members of the council want to shoot some of their toes off next year, the old council will gladly provide the ammunition. Granted, the discussions have been very preliminary, but some council members actually believe the community might buy in. Council members Barry Peters (he’s gone soon) and Kirsten Hytopoulos (two years) have indicated that the council’s financial situation and its credibility have improved to the point where the public will vote to increase the amount of taxes it pays annually in order to avoid all those potholes out there. One would think the results of the recent council election would cause reality to seep into the thinking of the current group. The only tangible accomplishment it has achieved during the last two years was to trim the obvious fat – employees and selected services – from a bloated budget in order to sidestep bankruptcy. Oh, that and being able to maneuver the Washington Ferry System into giving the city $2 million with no SEE OPINION, A7

Clarification In last week’s editorial, it was mistakenly written that a Washington State Patrol investigation into Bainbridge Police Officer Scott Weiss accused him of violating the city’s Canon of Ethics, etc. In fact, the accusations were made by city officials after a briefing was held between them and WSP investigators.

City needs to support a new waterfront facility The city’s Harbor Commission has proposed a Waterfront Recreation Center for Waterfront Park. The present city dock is old, sadly outdated, overcrowded, lacking of proper facilities and in disrepair. The proposed new facility will allocate WSF settlement funds as they were intended - for waterfront development. Estimated turnkey cost by a reputable firm is $1.451 million and includes: handicap access, pier and float for non-motorized craft; 35 vessel slips with water and electrical hookups and pump out station; all design and permitting costs; all removal, disposal, delivery and installation costs. Several state and/or federal grants could cover a portion of the cost, however, the project can be accomplished with the money available. The proposal is socially responsible and benefits a large segment of the community. Improvements to the dock will directly benefit many islanders – especially the hundreds of youngsters involved with rowing, summer sailing and kayaking programs. Many others will also benefit – adult rowers, small boat sailors, kayakers and “trailer sailors,” SCUBA divers, swimmers, sightseers and fishers. A new dock will provide wider, safer and ADA accessible docks – increasing accessibility to water-related activities The dock will facilitate more visits by tour boats, tall ships and heritage

vessels, and would allow many more islanders the opportunity to see and visit them. An acceptable facility would also attract visiting boaters to tie up for a day or two while they explore the local area. The money visitors leave behind would bring immediate financial benefits to our beleaguered downtown businesses. Economic benefit to city businesses is estimated to be $500,000 per year and in addition, estimated moorage revenues are $60,000 per year, as well as the sales tax revenues. Replacing the dock will deliver real economic and personal benefits to the Bainbridge community at large, improve a valuable city-owned asset and be of widespread and positive benefit to both boaters and nonboaters on the Island. If you agree – please write the City Council and encourage them to support this proposal. John Peters Bainbridge Island

Symphony orchestra

New conductor offering high energy, new ideas We were fortunate to attend the recent Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra’s opening concert, a celebration of “New Beginnings,” with their new conductor and new season. After many years of attending concerts with the Seattle Symphony, we decided it was time to support our local symphony, and we certainly weren’t disappointed. New conductor and music director, Wesley Schultz, is clearly bringing new energy and ideas to the group,

and the musicians, all volunteers, are amazingly talented and dedicated. The music featured high energy and celebratory works by major composers and provided a wonderful evening’s entertainment. We encourage others to join us at the next concerts in March and April to experience quality, live, classical symphonic music right here on Bainbridge Island.

Join Senior Center for a variety of good reasons What to do when it’s cold and dark? Are you 50 or older? Perhaps you do not identify as a “senior,” even if you are 80. Old is anybody older than I am by 10 years. The motto of the Bainbridge Island Senior and Community Center (BISCC) is “50+ and On the GO!” Join now for only $10 and help support islanders who are old or frail, as well as those who are the fittest and most active. Did you know that during last winter’s power outage, some seniors spent three days in bed without heat? BISCC, in collaboration with the county, Homeland Security and the American Red Cross, has spent significant time, effort and money to install a generator and become a “warming center” when the power goes out. We can heat up the center and arrange transportation to our buildings, provide heat, hot beverages, entertainment and company.

strings attached. It looks good on paper, anyway. And, yes, the city’s road system has been neglected almost to a criminal degree and something has to be done about it. But going to voters during this climate would be a waste of time and money. Perhaps two or three years into the next council, if it has taken some positive, incremental steps toward earning the trust of the community after years of indifference, voters will be in the mood to consider embracing a comprehensive project. But only if the city has begun solving its primary problem – expenditures that threaten to exceed a finite revenue stream. It’s too early to be overly optimistic, but all of the new council members seem to be free of personal ambitions and agendas. Hopefully, their collective abilities and an additional amount of time and distance from the council/ administration that got the city into this mess will allow them to do more than just react. The next council needs to take full advantage of the planning tools the current administration has established so the organization can finally mature to the point of being fundamentally stable.

Letters One Call For All

Donors asked to give what they can afford One Call For All’s annual Red Envelope Campaign is now under way with many generous donations from our local community members already coming in. Sometimes people wonder how much they should give. Our answer is this: “It’s not the amount you give that’s important – it’s that you give at all. We’re grateful for what you choose to donate, period. Only one in seven island households gives to “One Call,” so we are pleased when a donor makes a donation of any size. So give the amount you can afford this year, that reflects your caring and compassion for those you are supporting. Your donations do make a difference. The agencies served by One Call For All serve thousands each year, using donations for operations and on-going expenses. Each of them has a budget, just like you do at home, and each is stretching every dollar received to wring out the most benefit for the most people possible. Imagine the smiling faces at our agencies when the check arrives. The nonprofit organizations receiving those funds know you still care about what they do and the check is your endorsement of their mission. You also benefit by sharing yourself with others. Every dollar you give provides the means for others to be of service. Your love – expressed through your gift – feeds, clothes, maintains

and supports those in the community deserving of your help. This is so simple, isn’t it? One act of giving supports as many nonprofits as you wish to care for. One tax donation letter. One check or credit card charge. And 100 percent of your donation goes to the nonprofits of your choice. One Call For All even absorbs the credit card fees that would normally be charged and deducted from your donation. We love the simplicity and elegance of this model of giving back to the community. It appeals to our sense of fair play, of community, of being in service to others. It makes sense you would give this way. Now is the time to go online at and make your choices. Now is the moment to share with those you wish to love and support. Now is the time to be part of the larger community that supports us all. One Call For All Bob Linz, executive director Brian Lawler, board president


Make snow-tire users pay for road damage Make studded snow tire users pay for the damage they are doing to our roads. Now, they are outsourcing the cost of their environmental damage to the rest of us. That is not right. These days there are soft rubber traction snow tires that do not damage the roads. They can be more effective than studded tires in many instances

I am sure there will always be those who prefer studded snow tires. That is fine, but it is time they start paying for the damage they are doing to our roads. It is not right or fair that we should be cutting funding for education and social programs and using the money to repair roads damaged by optional studded snow tires.

City Hall

Legality is one thing, being fair is another Actions of the city and our elected officials can either be legal or illegal, fair or unfair. I for one prefer to live in a community that acts both legally and fairly. While the actions of the City and our elected officials are for the most part always legal, they are too often not fair and that is the source of our problem. If you have any trouble discerning what is fair, just answer this question: Is this the way you would treat your good friend? It is legal for the city to stack the Utility Advisor Committee (UAC) with people who don’t pay the water or sewer fees, but it is not fair. It feels like taxation without representation. Yes I know the UAC does not directly determine the water and sewer rates, but the City Council uses the UAC’s recommendations as a reason and justification for their decisions on rates. It is legal for the city to stack

the citizens workgroups for the Shoreline Management Plan with people who don’t own shoreline property and who will not be directly affected by large buffers and other restrictions. But is it fair? It may be legal for the city to take money from the WSF lease and spend it on non-water dependent development, but it is not fair. It is legal for the city to use its money, the courts and the power of government to enforce arbitrary decisions of staff and to defend the actions of employees even when they are wrong, but it is not fair. I am sure you can think of examples that don’t feel right because they are just not fair. Until we change the culture of City Hall, we will always have this feeling of distrust; the feeling that we are not being treated fairly. How would you treat your good friend? That is the way we want to be treated. Let’s hope the new City Council will change the culture in City Hall so we are all treated fairly. Gary Tripp Bainbridge Island


Came up a little short, but worth the effort I send my gratitude to the voters on Bainbridge Island for their support and efforts to elect me as a parks commissioner. We came up a bit short, but now we’re in open range. Thanks. Ron Luke Bainbridge Island

County-widetrailssystemgainingmomentum A uniquely Bainbridge event recently brought together groups from on and off island to share vital information and consider the next steps in growing an integrated system of trails through open space. This gathering was hosted on Nov. 7 by Sustainable Bainbridge, co-sponsored by the Bainbridge Municipal Parks and Recreation District, the Bainbridge Island Land Trust, the COBI NonMotorized Transportation Advisory Committee, and Squeaky Wheels. About 80 people came together at the Bainbridge Commons with structured presentations, displays, and refreshments. The occasion for the event was an outreach by leaders of the North Kitsap Trails Association and Kitsap County officials to share information and take comment on the North Kitsap String of Pearls Trail Plan. This plan will be considered by the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners for adoption on Nov. 28. The plan provides a framework for development of an integrated

GUEST COLUMN By DON WILLOTT system of trails and on-road connections, as well as water trails, in a way that preserves and enhances open space. It supports the approach and progress already made on Bainbridge, including the Sound to Olympics (Regional Greenway) Trail – which will connect to regional trails in King County and on the Olympic Peninsula. The timing of this Bainbridge event made it possible to include a section of program devoted to the emerging Great Kitsap Forest and Bay Project. The GKFBP has been organized to support negotiations between Pope Resources’ Olympic Property Group, the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe, the Suquamish

Tribe, Forterra (formerly Cascade Land Conservancy), the Great Peninsula Conservancy, and Kitsap County to preserve as much as possible of Pope’s land holdings as open space with public trails. The principals in this negotiation announced on Oct. 19 the signing of an option agreement allowing 18 months to demonstrate significant progress toward purchase of these lands. Pope has allowed public use on its privately-owned timberland for many years, but plans to divest itself of most of its holdings in Kitsap, with a default plan to sell it off in 20-acre parcels. These existing trails are heavily used by Bainbridge and county residents for walking, mountain biking, horse riding, and other outdoor activities. Kitsap County Commissioner Rob Gelder, representing the North District, led in presenting this initiative.

developed the presentation jointly with Gelder, and were present as well. Jon Rose, president of Pope’s Olympic Property Group, contributed additional information. Key to the success of this Bainbridge event was the active participation of a host of island organization leaders to share and glean information to cultivate ongoing collaboration – on Bainbridge and at the county level. In addition to the co-sponsors, representatives from several groups described their work as it relates to the common vision of building the integrated system of trails, including: City Council, the city’s Road Ends Committee, Friends of the Farms, Waterfront Trail Committee, Grace Episcopal Church Arboretum/Trail Committee, Bainbridge Island School District and West Sound Cycling Club. Those of us organizing this event had planned to adjourn to informal conversation following brief presentations by our local organizations. However, as emcee, when I

started to call for the transition, the audience instead preferred remain as a group for additional sharing and consideration of next steps, and then stuck around beyond the planned ending time for informal conversation. One suggestion which drew support was that we have on Bainbridge a similar gathering – to pool information and sync our combined work – at least once a year, possibly as much as quarterly. The time seems right to have such a regular opportunity to put our heads together, much like the Mountains to Sound Greenway does with extraordinary results.

Friday, November 25, 2011 • Bainbridge Island Review

Page a9

Island needs a public conversation about policing In “African Queen,” Humphrey Bogart quips that “things are never so bad they can’t be made worse.” This observation applies to our local police department, at least since the end of 2010. We experienced the tragedy of the Ostling shooting only to learn, in the next few months, about rule breaking at the Civil Service Commission, a reserve officer’s history of assault, at least two cases of officer misconduct, and a citizen complaint process reminiscent of something in Kafka. A visit to the comment section of the online Review suggests that there is a significant trust divide between island residents and their police department, and the gap is growing. This gap is compounded by the new normal of politics, where money is scarce and expenditures questioned: do we really need all these cops in our small community? A secretary to the chief of police who earns $70,000 a year? Two dozen patrol cars that double as take-home vehicles?

More halfofof Morethan than half all all Americans live Americans liveless less than 5 miles from than 5 miles from where they work, where they towork, according Bicycling Magazine according to , and only 1.67 percent Bicycling Magazine, of Americans commute and only 1.67 percent by bicycle. of Americans commute by bicycle.

GUEST COLUMN By KIM HENDRICKSON Our City Council has responded to this trust gap with an ambitious suggestion recently described in these pages: survey islanders about their interactions with police, hire a consultant to analyze the results and meet with groups of citizens to discuss their experiences. The good news is that if this plan moves forward we’ll learn more about officer misconduct. Surveys and focus groups will smoke out all sorts of interesting complaints from our opinionated population. Bad news: this approach will tell us little about deeper issues; namely, police management decisions that effect officer behavior

(the woman who writes tickets for $450 at the ferry terminal might make you mad, but her action reflects someone else’s ideas about community policing). Worse, this new process may widen the trust gap between citizens and their police. Residents will hear more (founded and unfounded) stories about officer misconduct. Officers will be encouraged to see island residents (as some already do) as critical and mean-spirited. So what to do? Here is a radical suggestion: let’s move the debate from the “us” and “them” framework and take responsibility for local policing. Police departments are top down institutions, but this shouldn’t preclude grass-roots involvement in some aspects of decision making. It is, after all, our $4 million a year that pays for the department, and we have a right to our opinions. Instead of deferring big-picture decisions about policing to the city manager and chief (who do not typically make decisions in public)

let’s insist that our new council becomes involved in police policy discussions, and does so in public session. It would be great to know, for example, what our crime statistics are (at the moment, the department does not provide this information) and what standards are used to define success in policing. In addition to relying on council, let’s meet town-hall style to discuss our local crime problems and how we’d like to address them. Let’s ask questions about how our officers spend their time, how other departments use scarce resources, and what policing trends look like in other communities. Perhaps this sort of gathering, over time, may reveal some useful consensus. I for one would like to see more officers out of their cars and building cooperative relationships. Further, let’s get to know our rank and file by asking them to be a part of conversations; many of them have some great ideas that have never been taken up the pub-

lic or city leaders. The essence of these suggestions is that we move from a top-down model of policing to something more collaborative and inclusive. Involving the community in police department decision making will close the trust gap over time, and encourage – dare I say it – pride in our department. Idealistic? Maybe, but this is a remarkable place, and I’m continually awed by what we do through civic collaboration. Please join us at Flowering Around on Friday, Dec. 2, from 6-7:30 p.m., to participate in a conversation on local policing. Panelists will be on hand from the Washington Open Government Coalition, Seattle University, WSU, and our own police department to discuss ideas and answer questions. Admission is free and all are welcome. Kim Hendrickson is a former secretary/chief examiner (2009-11) for the city’s Civil Service Commission.

HistoricalMuseumraisesfundsforeducationalprograms By CONNIE MEARS


Staff Writer

It’s tempting to dismiss the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum’s current exhibit. Island residents are all too familiar with the story it tells of the internment of residents of Japanese descent during World War II. Many, in fact, actually lived it. One might think it’s simply an island story, but when Edmonds teacher Stacey Kinnear read about it, first in The New York Times, and then again in the Seattle Times, she thought it would be a powerful teaching tool for her eighth-grade class. Having read “Farewell to Manzanar” as an English assignment, 91 eighth-graders came across the pond Nov. 15 to see the exhibit first-hand. Thanks to Bainbridge Island Historical Museum outreach coordinator Katy Curtis, they had an experience that will stay with them for some time to come. “They’re still talking about it,” Kinnear said Monday about the effect the field trip had on her class. For starters, the Historical Museum issued tags to pairs of the students which were similar to those issued to Bainbridge residents in 1942. The students were asked to take on the persona of the interned person and do “research” on them at the museum. In some cases, they were able to actually speak with the person first hand since many of the interned, now in their 70s, 80s and 90s, are willing to share the details of that time of their life. The exchange was particularly poignant, since many of them were at a similar age as the the eighth-grade students when they were forcibly removed from their homes. In addition to their visit to the museum, the honor students from Meadowdale Middle School, visited Akio Suyematsu’s Day Road Farm and toured the Bainbridge Island Japanese


Docents Matsue Nishimori Watanabe (far left) and Eileen Okada (to her right) presented their experiences to an eighth-grade class at the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum. American Exclusion Memorial, searching the 276-wall for the name of the person on their tag. “I’ve had the most positive feedback from students about this trip than any other,” Kinnear said. “This brought it to life for them. They understood it more deeply than just reading about it.” Dozens of volunteer docents made the experience possible.

Learning curve “This is one of the wonderful unexpected consequences of having such a successful exhibit,” Curtis said. The exhibit won an award for exhibition excellence from the Western Museums Association. The museum and the Bainbridge Island School District and island private schools used t0 give every fourth grader the

opportunity to visit the museum. But that was curtailed due to funding cuts and changes to the state curriculum requirements from “local history” to “state history.” Some fourth grade teachers still manage to bring students to the museum each year. This decrease in students required the staff to increase its focus on educational programs. This year, the number of students served has increased by more than 30 percent. In fact, more students visited during 2011 than any year in the past. Teachers and museum docents

worked to match the updated requirements with museum programs. “We work closely with individual teachers to tailor our programs to their needs,” Curtis said. Many classes have chosen to identify specific individuals from island history, such as early island pioneers, teachers or ferry boat captains, and do research in the museum’s library to discover for themselves how their “characters” life was lived. Others take a specific topic, such as the expeditions of Vancouver and Wilkes, the period when Bainbridge had the

First prize is half the earnings of the raffle, up to $5,000 in cash. Second prize is a handcrafted walnut bookcase donated by McKinnon Furniture, and the third prize is an Apple iPad2 Wi-Fi+3G. Tickets are $10 each or three for $25, and are available at the Historical Museum, through board members in front of T&C, Ace Hardware and Safeway, or online at Proceeds from the event support the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum general fund, including its educational programs. To learn more, visit www. biggest lumber mill in the world, or the various island communities served by the “Mosquito Fleet” and expand their learning through the museum’s exhibits and books. One Bainbridge class did a “then and now” project, researching old photos in the museum’s extensive database and learning how to create exhibits. The programs come at a price, of course, and the museum is once again holding its raffle to raise needed funds. For more information, visit www.

Perhacs Studio brings (edge) to annual arts tour

By CONNIE MEARS Staff Writer



Top, Brandon Perhacs, proprietor, resident of Perhacs Studio which will be on the Winter Studio Tour Dec. 2-4, shows examples of his work. Above, a miniature prototype of a floor-length lamp sits atop a counter in the minimalist space.

rt, essentially, is born of a series of choices: medium, palette, realism or abstraction, line and form and combinations thereof, interplay of light and dark, texture, and opaqueness of meaning. Each choice disallows all other possibilities, and eventually a work expresses the aggregate of an artist’s preferences at that given time. To commit to each choice and forgo the alternatives takes courage. The most original and inventive work, that which veers dramatically from the collective norms, carries the risk of ridicule and rejection, not to mention a lack of commercial viability. And yet, it is at this periphery where inspiration dwells. Likewise, being an artist requires an ongoing series of choices, each which sets the artist on a new trajectory. Each requiring its own measure of courage. For Bainbridge artist Brandon Perhacs, a pivotal decision came early on at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif. After the euphoria of a generous schol-

arship to the prestigious art school, Perhacs sensed that the school’s emphasis on product over process didn’t resonate with his own values about art making. “It’s one of the best schools, but they turn out people to turn out things for production,” he said Monday at the home|studio space where he lives|works on the island. “I’m much more interested in the physical poetry of things. I hesitate to say spiritual, but the poetic,” he said. By this time he’d made other choices: three-dimensional design, contemporary aesthetic, Eastern principles, organic forms, natural materials. He also chose to return to the Northwest, working out of a studio space in Pioneer Square. When the contemporary space he built with his mother, Bainbridge artist Katherine Michaels, became available, he came full circle back to the island. A year and a half ago, he opened the expansive, minimalist space he dubbed studio(p) for salon-style gatherings among island artists. “My intention was to make this a community incubator,”

he said. “I am interested in creating an environment that nurtures art and community.” His last salon drew “70 or so people,” but he realized the effort to host them put his own work on the backburner. And there’s the Catch-22 every artist deals with: making a living. “It’s hard to balance those two things. You either need a regular job and do the art on the side, or you need to find a way to make money with your art,” he said. He turned his focus on developing his line of lighting, home decor and jewelry, exhibiting in a juried show at the Chelsea Art Museum in New York City in May. He signed up for the studio tour. He said he’ll resume the salon gatherings next year. “I think that art and aesthetics are an important part of life,” Perhacs said. “Some people think the arts are not important, but if you take that away, it is a horrible state to be in. Art makes life worth it.” Perhacs, the son of artists and grandson of an inventor, thinks art is in his genes. “I get more satisfaction

from someone having an amazing experience around art, than making a sale. And yet…you have to pay the bills. It’s a really tough balance.” With every choice he makes or doesn’t, he “sculpts” his version of the creative life. ••• Perhac’s mother has made her own choices, walking that fine line between art and the business of living. Once a successful carver and sculptor, the toxic chemicals of the foundry she co-owned forced her to abandon her first love. Slowly she is “forging” a new body of work: bowls made of paper handmade by women in Zimbabwe. Michaels repulps the material, mixing and adding organic components – seedpods, blossoms, rocks, plant fibers – mixing in bee’s wax to harden the forms. “It’s a feminine thing, the concept of doing vessels,” she said in her upstairs studio at her home on the south end of the island. “They are meant to hold things, hold spirit,” she said. “It’s the feminine concept of holding.”

WinterStudioTour Winter Studio Tour: The 28th annual Winter Studio Tour is from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Dec. 2-4 at 10 studios and community halls throughout Bainbridge Island. The free, self-guided tour features the work of 70 artists and can be accessed by car or bike. RobertSpanglerStudio PerhacsStudio AmericanLegionHall Filipino-AmericanHall BainbridgeCommons GrangeHall SiebertPotteryStudio MesoliniGlassStudio HiddenCovePottery SeaboldHall Directions and a map are available at www. She experienced a time of gestation around this new work, which she has only shown at Island Gallery, so far. To balance the bills and artmaking, Michaels makes documentary videos with her husband, Alan Honnick. One she is particularly proud of is “The Art of Lost Wax Casting” about an old-school method for casting sculpture. ••• Mother and son respect each others aesthetic and seek the other’s input on their individual work. They have collaborated on many creative projects, including the space that is now Perhacs Studio. Both will show their respective work there as part of this year’s Bainbridge Island Winter Studio Tour.

Volunteers erect new bus shelter By DENNIS ANSTINE Staff Writer

As passersby will certainly notice, the new bus shelter located at the northeast end of the eventual Ferncliff Village development is built to last. The volunteer project was coordinated by the Housing Resources Board to serve the nonprofit’s affordable housing project and the Ferncliff Avenue neighborhood. Most of the volunteers were provided by Bainbridge Island Community Woodshop, including coordinator Tom Kilbane, a retired islander who takes no credit. “I’m just an innocent bystander, not a woodworker,”

he said, “but I can lift things.” The group does a variety of projects, including wheel chair ramps and work around the island’s Senior Center. Coyote Woodshop milled the wood, which was part of about 6,000 square feet of Douglas fir cut at the site that’ will be used to build a playground and pea patch. Others involved included landscape architect Tim Goss and Salisbury Woodworking, which volunteered time and expertise to do the joinery. Central Highlands Builders constructed the foundation and Ferncliff Village Homeowners Association will maintain the bus shelter.

The weather wasn’t cooperative after several volunteers first framed the new bus shelter for Ferncliff Village last Thursday, but it was ready to begin serving the community by Wednesday. The timber came from Douglas fir cut on the property.

What should I do about my vehicle to keep the environment safe? • If you are advised that you have fluid leaks or exhaust system problems, attend to them as soon as your budget allows. • Maintain correct tire pressure, properly mounted and balanced tires, alignments, and all systems on your car which allow your vehicle to drive smoothly and without resistance • Maintain your brakes (sticking is a major thief of good gas mileage) • Service your fuel system with top engine cleaning and fuel injector service to maximize your mileage • Be aware of your driving habits, accelerate slowly, brake smoothly and don’t alter your speed randomly. Slow down. Take life easy.


Let us help you reduce your carbon footprint by keeping your vehicle at its best! Is your car in reasonably good condition? Purchasing a new energy-efficient vehicle could be increasing your carbon footprint by generating a new vehicle and all of the manufacturing that it took to create that new vehicle. You be the judge. If your car gets over 25 miles to the gallon and is well tuned and maintained, you are already doing a good job for the environment!

Have you noticed any changes in comfort or energy costs? The house heats quickly and evenly. Our downstairs living area—which used to feel like a meat locker—is now pleasant and enjoyable. The new unit is also really quiet. We can’t wait to see our next energy bill.

Did you receive an incentive for your improvements? We financed the unit through Kitsap Credit Union’s Energy Efficiency Loan Program. Working with the credit union was really easy and the loan rate was good. We also received $950 from a federal tax credit and manufacturer rebate, and plan to get more cash through RePower incentives.

What’s your next step to increased energy efficiency? I give RePower Bainbridge two-thumbs up. You have nothing to lose by inviting a professional energy advisor into your home. At the very least, you gain knowledge.

Island’s farm generations enjoy harvest celebration By DENNIS ANSTINE

Bentryns seek lessee for their business

Staff Writer

What began 35 years ago as a pact between longtime island farmer Akio Suyematsu and vintners Gerard and Jo Ann Bentryn has sprouted many roots on the north end of Bainbridge Island. The purchase of part of the Day Road Farms and Morales Farm properties by the City of Bainbridge Island in recent years fortified these agricultural pursuits and spurred others to get involved. While the Bentryns and Suyematsu are nearing retirement, there has been an increase in agricultural involvement in recent years. Friends of the Farms has helped many individual farmers and now the EducCulture Project, which was founded by island educator Jon Garfunkel, is making a difference. Last Sunday, about 50 members of the island’s growing farm community gathered at the Bentryn winery for a thanksgiving and harvest celebration featuring food and drink produced on several island farms. It was sponsored by the EduCulture Project, which partners the island’s farms and schools into a program that provides scholarship and a source for the crops produced on the island. The event featured food

Some of the island’s most dedicated farmers include: (front, L-F) Jo Ann and Gerard Bentryn, Carol Rolph, Akio Suyematsu; middle (L-R) Karen Selvar, Betsey Wittick, Mike Paulson and Dana Steege-Jackson; back row (L-R), vintner Mike Lempriere, Diane Wierzbicki, Emily Magnotto and Aaron Jackson. Others who couldn’t attend the event included Brian MacWhorter, and Craig and Alice Skipton. grown from several local farms and the dinner was prepared by IslandWood chefs Jim White and Chris Agnew. Chef Tamas Ronyai of Seattle’s Farestart Restaurant created the desserts. There were many hugs and toasts during the premeal

event, but the proof of the pudding came later. It was quite a feast, including: • Squash from Bainbridge Island Farms; • Potatoes, onion, garlic and peppers from Laughing Crow Farm; • Greens from Butler Green

Farms; • Eggs from Paulson, Butler Green and Heyday farms; • Artisan bread from the Wilkes/Morales edible education porgram; • Wines from the Bainbridge Island Vineyards & Winery and the Perennial

Vintners; • Apple cider from Butler Green Farms; • Raspberries, a pumpkinraspberry goat cheese tart and a raspberry chantilly, candied ginger and chocolate raspberries from Suyematsu Farms; • Sugar pumpkins from the

Gerard and Jo Ann Bentryn are seeking someone to lease their Bainbridge Island Vineyards & Winery. The winery is temporarily closed after they sold out of their bottled inventory last month, but wine remains in the tanks and barrels to be bottled and labeled. The winery and adjacent tasting room sit on part of the 13 acres the Bentryns own off Day Road, which includes their home. They also share/lease the farm property and vineyards with the city and other farmers. “We’re just tired,” Jo Ann said. “But we don’t want to sell the land because we want to remain living here. Besides the winery, we’re open to how much is leased. But most important, the land needs to be taken care of.” She said that there needs to be vineyard production during three of any five-year period. The Bentryns are especially proud of the fact the vineyards are free of insecticides.

Thanksgiving holiday adds flavor, life and meaning A funny thing happened on my way to November. I seem to have misplaced February, March and most of the summer. I have no idea where they’ve gone, but here I am in November, staring down the end of 2011. I’d better use what’s left of it before that’s gone too! Good parts of the year still remain. November brings Thanksgiving and unless you’re a turkey, that’s a day to look forward to. We envision the delicious aromas of the anticipated feast, the joyful gathering of relatives and friends so dear they feel like family, the blare of the television’s endless football

me end up again between motor-mouth Jim and little cousin Sally who throws up a lot). I hope no one mentions politics or religion. I hate it when sensitive Ethel bursts into tears because cynical Alan thinks he’s funny when he ridicules her beliefs. Grandson Paul will probably storm out in a huff again midway through the meal and someone’s bound to spill red wine on the brand new white table cloth bought to replace the one that was ruined last year. But the food is too good to resist and there’s always some laughter than man-

ages to sneak in between the arguments. The challenges and rebuttals, compliments and complaints, chatter and clatter, raised voices and chuckles prove there’s plenty of life left in us yet. We are secure enough in the strength of our family ties to honestly express our views. No need for political correctness here. We’re among family. When the last piece of pie has been eaten, the last teenager has rolled her eyes at whatever, the youngest and oldest among the gathering have nodded off, coats will be gathered, good-byes and final hugs delivered,

and another Thanksgiving will be behind us. The next year will wind down and we’ll look forward to another gathering and another feast. We’ll chuckle over incidents and remarks remembered from the previous year’s Thanksgiving and take turns predicting who will get mad at whom this time. But we look forward to going. Why do we look forward to a family gathering that we know won’t be all warm and fuzzy like a Norman Rockwell illustration suggests it should be? I think it is because our freely expressed opinions, raised

voices and exposed feelings are the sauce that flavor and breathe life into our families, enrich them and makes them a meaningful, treasured part of our lives. Something to be thankful for. Too much warm and fuzzy can dull the palate. Enjoy your family members just as they are, even the ones who disagree with you, because we all know that one day they’ll see that you were right. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

That’s right, Poulsbo. Our local clinic, InHealth Imaging, became one of the first in the nation to provide the new technology called 3-D mammography or tomosynthesis. The new equipment was approved by the FDA in March and advocates worldwide have praised its benefits. One woman even traveled from the Phillipines to visit the local clinic. Detecting breast cancer is no easy task for radiologists, especially for early cancers. In traditional 2-D mammography, there is considerable guesswork in detecting suspicious areas, since normal breast tissues can overlap and create ‘phantom’ images that appear like lesions. For many women, this leads to unnecessary and costly biopsies. The new technology eliminates the guesswork by taking a series of low-dose images and constructing them into a 3-D image of the breast. The ability to look around these overlapping structures, eliminates ‘phantoms’ giving the radiologist a greater ability to detect smaller lesions or rule out cancer with greater confidence. Dr. Henne was moved to become one of the first to adopt the 3-D technology because of his intimate history with cancer: “We want the best tools to detect these cancers early, because that saves patient’s lives.” InHealth Imaging is also the only clinic in the region to provide a new kind of stereotactic breast biopsy. “This is a significant advancement in patient comfort,” he says, “because it greatly decreases pain during the procedure.” Though very few mammograms lead to biopsies, women who are asked to undergo the procedure can often experience great discomfort. The new equipment provides a more comfortable upright position and a continuous flow with lidocane, a numbing agent, reducing discomfort and bruising. Many patients therefore experience a completely pain-free recovery. By offering women the latest technology in mammography, InHealth Imaging hopes to increase the number of women who will be routinely screened. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her lifetime. The stage at which breast

cancer is detected influences a woman’s chance of survival. When detected early, less extensive treatment is needed and the five-year survival rate is 97 percent. The clinic also offers a full-spectrum of breast imaging services, including; Breast MRI, diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasoundguided core biopsies. 3-D mammograms are covered by insurance and cost the same as standard digital mammography. InHealth Imaging also participates in various programs for low-income patients, so that they can receive the treatment they need. For more information

Islandmoms Rave for 3-D Mammo at InHealth Imaging

Okay… if you’ve put off “having the girls checked” for whatever reason…. I have a RAVE for you!!!

I have always gone to Seattle to have “the girls” checked out, as recommended by my health care provider. While my previous experiences have been … fine, for a time/convenience sake, this time I went to InHealth Imaging In Poulsbo.

I was amazed at how professional the tech, Melanie was. The room was comfortable and cheerful. The machine in the room was quiet. The actual mammogram lasted about 5 minutes and, while I can’t say it was a pleasant experience…I can say there was no pain or discomfort. When you are finished, they give you a card for you to go to the bistro next door for a complimentary beverage. They also offer you a nice little chocolate bar as your “treat” for coming in and taking care of yourself. The wrapper on the candy bar says “Fighting Today for a Cure Tomorrow” and has the traditional pink ribbon on it.


3-D Mammo comes to the NW

The doctor comes in shortly after the images are taken and he will discuss the results of your test with you. Then, if you wish, you can view what 3-D images of “the girls” look like and how fascinating it is to view things from the inside. Best of all… as this counts as preventative…insurance covered the cost 100% (check with your insurance carrier to verify if they are a preferred provider.).

So… to sum it up…Don’t put off your yearly health care screenings…we have one of the most sophisticated, advanced tools in the world of Women’s health, right in our own back yard! I’d highly recommend InHealth Imaging! To your Health! ~KR

Annual festival takes a ‘bough’ BY ERIN JENNINGS Kitsap Week

DESSERT THEATER The sun will come out tomorrow at Silverdale Baptist Church’s 13th annual Christmas Dessert Theater. This year’s show is “Annie,” Dec. 2-4 and Dec. 8-11 at the church, 8278 State Route 303 NE, Bremerton. Tickets are $12 and include dessert. Info and tickets: www.


ne year, her tree had a sleigh theme. Another year, it was decorated with vintage-looking dolls. This year’s theme is “Cooking with Claus” and features gingerbread. For each of the last 24 years, Sandra Carlson has decorated a Christmas tree, each with its own unique theme, for the Festival of Trees. So she wasn’t

about to miss the 25th and final event. “It’s very sad,” the retired librarian said. “I’ve known [about the finale] for almost a year. By the time this year’s festival comes around, most of my grieving will be done.” After this weekend’s festivities, Harrison Medical Center Foundation is bowing out of the annual fundraiser where decorated trees are auctioned off to raise money for the foun-

dation. Foundation director Stephanie Cline cited many reasons why the event is coming to an end. “When you approach a significant milestone, it’s always an opportunity to stand back and consider, ‘Where does this fit in?’, ” Cline said. “In the case of Festival of Trees, it’s a wonderful event and people love it, but there has been some trending we have watched for a See TREES, Page 2

The Festival of Trees raised about $3 million in 24 years to meet various needs at Harrison Hospital. This year’s proceeds will go toward refurbishing the intensive care unit waiting room.

Continued from page 1 couple of years.” For one, people’s auction habits have changed and they are less likely to buy “stuff.” While items such as unique experiences or trips still pull in premium amounts at the auction, the trees themselves don’t always obtain as high an amount as they did in the past. The lower bids could partially be blamed on the switch to using artificial trees — once you buy one, you have one. How many Christmas trees does one need? In the past, festival designers used live preserved trees, but over the years the artificial tree product became a better choice because it allowed designers more freedom and time to create. In addition to a lower dollar amount for the trees, there has been a decline in festival attendance numbers the past five or six years. Cline said it will be interesting to see how many people attend this year’s finale. “The decision to celebrate 25 years and then back away from the festival is part of a larger strategic plan of the foundation,” Cline said. “We are broadening our scope on how we raise money.” Long-time foundation board member Ralph Lintz, came up with the idea for the Festival of Trees after visiting relatives in Port-

land. His aunt and uncle had purchased a beautiful circus motif tree at a hospital fundraiser and Lintz knew a similar event in Kitsap could generate a great deal of money for the hospital’s foundation. Over the years, the festival raised about $3 million. Money obtained at this final event will go toward refurbishing the intensive care unit’s waiting room. Cline said one thing she will miss about the Festival of Trees is the chance to hear personal stories of how Harrison Medical Center touches the lives of Kitsap

families. The festival provides an ideal time for the foundation to interact with the community. Superb hospital care for her father was one of the driving forces behind Carlson’s initial interest in the Festival of Trees. “My father had been in and out of Harrison for over a year,” she said. “They provided my father with excellent care and everyone — from the surgeons to the people cleaning the floors — went out of their way to make us feel comfortable.” Thirty trees will be on display at this year’s festival. All will be auctioned off

18th Annual Bainbridge Island

either in a live auction or an online auction. Tree themes this year range from a New York-inspired tree, complete with a trip to the Big Apple, to an “Under the Stars” tree which contains 25 crystals, one for each year of the festival. The larger trees include objects under the tree as well, such as furniture, toys, wine and more. Carlson said she likes for her theme ideas to float to the surface, similar to a Crazy 8 ball. “Sometimes I feel desperate if I don’t have the theme for next year’s tree at the end of the festival,” she said. Carlson estimates she spends more than 150 hours each year on her tree. And over the years, she’s learned how to create a “decorator tree,” as opposed to a “home tree.” The difference is, with a home tree, you put all your favorite ornaments on it and it doesn’t matter if a lot of green is showing. With a decorator tree, you want the colors to match and have one or two dominate colors. Decorator trees tend to be fuller with lots of glitz. On two occasions, Carlson bought back her tree at the auction. “As it often happens, when I put a lot of energy into something, I tend to put a lot of emotional energy into it as well,” she said. “I just had to buy those trees back.” Cline acknowledges the last Festival of Trees will be bittersweet. It served as a holiday tradition for many

“The decision to celebrate 25 years and then back away from the festival is part of a larger strategic plan of the foundation.” Stephanie Cline, director of Harrison Medical Center Foundation

families. “All things come to an end, even really good things,” she said. “Twentyfive years is a long time to

have been doing the same thing over and over and over again.” Although she’s sad about this festival ending, Carlson said she is not completely devastated. The reason? “I know I’d feel quite bereft if my sister and I weren’t planning on starting a hospital guild that will incorporate mini-trees,” she said. Their guild is in the early planning stages, but Carlson is happy to continue the tradition of creating Christmas trees. Cline said the Festival of Trees has been a tremendous outpouring of support from the community. “The Pavilion is a very big place. When you stand in the middle of the room and realize not a thing got there without a donor or volunteer, it’s an awesome feeling.”

Best-selling author to visit Kitsap BY ERIN JENNINGS Kitsap Week


est-selling young readers fantasy author Christopher Paolini is on tour promoting his latest book, “Inheritance,” the concluding novel in the Inheritance series. Paolini will make a stop on his multi-city tour on Nov. 28 at 7 p.m. at Bainbridge High School Commons, 9330 NE High School Road, Bainbridge Island. I was able to chat with him in between tour visits to learn a bit about him and his popular series. EJ: You were raised in a rural, mountainous region of Montana. How did your childhood influence your books? CP: The books were a natural outgrowth of my upbringing. Living in Montana and getting to see the landscape and wildlife all fed into the story and helped form and enrich it. And, of course, the fact that I was home-schooled played a part. EJ: How old were you when you came up with the story for “Eragon”? CP: I first thought of the idea when I was 14, but didn't start working on it until 1998 when I was 15. EJ: Did being home schooled allow you freedom that you wouldn’t have otherwise had? CP: Yeah. That was a large part of it. Being home-schooled allowed me to move at my own pace through the subject material, which meant I was able to graduate at 15. Being able to graduate early meant I had the time to write. You can’t write if you don’t have the time. If I'd been in high school and was taking different classes and playing sports and

Christopher Paolini will visit Kitsap. dealing with homework, I never would have been able to write “Eragon.” EJ: Did you want to be a writer when you were younger? CP: No, not at all. I wanted to be doing all the things I wrote about in the stories. I wanted to be riding dragons, fighting monsters and having adventures. Telling stories rose out of the desire of those daydreams. I have really fallen in love with this profession. I love writing and telling stories. I am very happy to be doing this. EJ: I’m a parent of a child not much younger

than you were when you wrote “Eragon.” I find it remarkable that your parents had the confidence in you to agree to selfpublish the book. CP: Part of it was they were happy I was writing because it kept me busy. I didn’t have a lot to do because I wasn’t in school and I didn’t have a job. My family was always looking for things we could do together and form a family business. So when I gave the manuscript to my parents and they read it, they really felt that there was something good in it and it

was worth pursuing. We all sat down and said, “Is this something worth trying?” And we all decided that it was and we would selfpublish it and try to make a go of it. Fortunately for us, it worked out. EJ: What does your family think now? CP: We are all amazed by it. On one hand, the sense of disbelief has faded over the years. It’s gotten easier to accept what has happened. But at the same time, it never goes away. On the tour I’m on now, I’m continually amazed by how much these books have meant to people. And the reactions I get from them — the emotions the story seems to have evoked in them. Yeah, it’s really kind of amazing. None of us have ever forgotten how far we’ve come and what an incredible journey it’s been. EJ: How does it feel to see people reading your book on the airplane, or buying it in the store?

who came to us with her five kittens. She is a friendly, playful young girl who likes to keep an eye on the birds and squirrels at the feeders outside the outdoor fenced in porches. She gets along well with the other cats, male and female, at the cattery. Nancy likes to sit in the window and soak up the sun while watching what’s going on outdoors. She likes to sit up high in a cat tree to keep an eye on everyone. Nancy is one of the first to greet me in the morning when I get to the cattery. She will be hanging out at the Poulsbo Petco hoping to meet her new family.

CP: I actually haven’t seen it quite as much as you would imagine because I live in a pretty isolated part of the country and I don’t get out too much except when I’m on tour. When I first did see people with the books and heard they were reading them, it was a little surreal. I never really believed when I was writing “Eragon” that anyone aside from my parents would read it. I wasn’t even sure my sister would read it! And to know that people all around the world are enjoying it is something I am very grateful and humble for. EJ: Your stories center on an elaborate fictional world. How do you keep all the details straight? CP: It definitely gets tricky at times. I’m lucky I have a lot of very good readers who look at the book before it’s published and help catch any mistakes on my part. I literally keep hundreds of pages of notes: Lists of character names, place names, histories, family trees and deleted scenes for reference. It’s a big job, but the thing is, you really


page 7

have to do it. You cannot keep track of it in your head. EJ: Where did you find your inspiration for the dragons? CP: Most of the behavior of Saphira came from my knowledge of dogs and cats that I grew up with. And also watching the animals in Montana. I’m glad I had pets growing up, because I think it helped me make the dragon much more realistic than I would have otherwise. EJ: How does it feel to be finished with the final book in the series? CP: It’s a little bittersweet to be saying goodbye to the world and the characters. But at the same time, it’s really excting to know the readers are finally able to get their hands on the last book and see the end of the story. I’ve always known where the story was going but, of course, the readers haven’t. EJ: So you are saying that way back when you began the first book, you knew where the story would lead you?

CP: Oh, yeah. Every writer works differently, but the way I work is I find it basically impossible to write unless I know where I’m going. In fact, I tried writing some books before “Eragon” and never got past the first few pages for that very reason. So before I started “Eragon,” I plotted out the entire story from start to finish. EJ: Do you plan on continuing to write? CP: Oh, yes. I definitely have some more stories in Eragon’s world that I would like to tell. At the same time, after working on this series for so long, I think I am going to work on other stories. I basically have 2030 completely new books all plotted out that I’ve been waiting to write. Some are science fiction, mystery, history, thriller, romance, historical-fiction, you name it, I’d like to try it. EJ: I read that when you first began touring for “Eragon” you dressed in medieval clothing. CP: That was an idea to get more attention for the book because no one knew who I was and no one knew what the book was, so yeah, I wore a costume. EJ: How did that feel being a home-schooled child, dressed in costume and entering high schools? CP: The first time I was ever in a public high school, I walked in wearing that costume. It was scary, I won’t deny it. But I found very quickly that the students were interested in my story and the story of the book. They wanted to like me. I lost my fear very quickly. And honestly,

being home-schooled, I never really had any difficultly speaking in public or interacting with strangers. Having not gone to public school, I never had to experience being beaten down for who I was. I didn’t have the negative experience of people making fun of me in public, so walking out in front of a bunch of high schoolers was scary, but not something I felt I couldn’t do. EJ: Anything else? CP: I’m very proud of this last book. I think it’s the best book in the series. For people who haven’t read the first three books, or who don’t read fantasy in general, I say they can easily pick this book up and get into the story. Even though it is fantasy, it deals with universal questions of how to live and what’s right and what’s wrong. It’s a classic coming of age story.

WEST SOUND READS The Nov. 28 free reading and book signing takes place at 7 p.m. at the Bainbridge High School Commons, 9330 NE High School Road, Bainbridge Island. Fans who purchase “Inheritance” from a local independent bookstore prior to the event will get a ticket, while supplies last, for two preferred seats plus upfront places in the book-signing line. Participating book stores include Eagle Harbor Book Store (Bainbridge Island), Liberty Bay Books (Poulsbo), The Traveler (Bainbridge Island), and Dauntless Books (Port Gamble).

Ask Erin

Continued from page 8 Dear Changing, Isn’t it ironic that during the holidays we hear so

much about peace, yet have such a difficult time finding our own? There is a fine line between being selfish and doing what’s best for you and your family, and it sounds

like you have the best of intentions. Be honest. Tell your extended family your wishes for a low-key holiday and that you won’t be joining them on Christmas Eve.

There may be protests, so be gentle, yet firm. Suggest an alternative, like gathering in early December to decorate gingerbread houses. Remember, nothing is set is stone. You may find you



miss those old traditions and will be the first one at the dinner table next year. Or, you might have created a wonderful new tradition on this side of the water. — Ask Erin is a feature of
