Gazzam close to funding target
Council will begin its search for City Manager Bauer’s replacement
By DENNIS ANSTINE Staff Writer
Islanders have about eight weeks to donate some $70,000 to secure the future of perhaps the largest lowerelevation closed-canopy forest in the Seattle area. Gazzam Lake Preserve is considered a rare gem by naturalists because of its size (444 acres), 18-acre wetland/ lake and a contiguous interior forest habitat that is particularly inviting to the large number of neotropical birds that migrate here from forests half a world away. About 75 species of birds have been documented in the reserve. This large forest of older second-growth Douglas firs, cedars and huge maples on the southwest end of Bainbridge Island is also unique because of its low altitude and size despite being in close vicinity to millions of people. That’s rare because of the interminable need for the metropolis to spread its tentacles where housing development is most SEE GAZZAM, A12
City seeks manager By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer

During one of the many walks they take weekly on the Gazzam Lake trail, Walt McGraw and his 3-year-old son Wiley stop so his favorite gloves can be slipped over his cold hands.
After an 18-month commitment, the Bainbridge Island City Council has decided to search for a new city manager. The break caused tension at the council’s weekly meeting on Wednesday and resulted in veteran Council Member Bob Scales’ objection and premature exit from the meeting. The council unanimously voted Wednesday to approve an amendment to City Manager Brenda Bauer’s contract that offers more pay to her severance package and allows the city to begin searching for her replacement, effectively beginning her termination from the position. “Regardless of the different positions up here and what different perspectives we came from, this council worked very well in (executive session),” said
Council Member Kirsten Hytopoulos said. “Right now I am very impressed by how these seven people have worked.” The council presented a unified front since the amendment was publicly announced Monday, with members refraining from making any comment on the matter. No comment was given by anyone on council or by city staff until a press release was published Thursday morning. “While we acknowledge and appreciate City Manager Bauer’s accomplishments leading the city through daunting financial and pressing infrastructure problems, the 2012 Council is committed to working with the community to develop a post-crisis vision for the city,” Council Member Debbi Lester said in a press release from the city. “We would like to SEE CITY MANAGER, A5
Occupy movement finds local expression Bainbridge events reflect island’s sensibilities, demographic. By CONNIE MEARS Staff Writer
Organizing an Occupy event wasn’t the kind of thing Bainbridge Island resident Heather Schaefer Scott ever thought she would do. “We have kids, we still have
a house. I can’t get arrested. I’m not going to sleep on the street,” she said Wednesday on the phone from the home she shares with Joe Preston and their four kids. But her experience at an Occupy Seattle demonstration in October changed all that. “It was so rewarding,” she said. “I felt inspired.” She put up an open invitation on Facebook for a salonstyle gathering in her home. About 15 people showed up – “truly all ages, all politi-
cal views” – and talked about the issues, clarifying for themselves how they could or wanted to become more involved. “You don’t have to do the hardcore thing,” she said. “There are so many bright minds on Bainbridge. Just do what you can do.” Bright-minded Norm Keegel was lying on his back at the Bainbridge Island Senior Center, where he participates in an exercise class, when the idea for an informational
forum came to mind. He took the idea to Agate Pass Friends, the SeaboldHall-based Quaker group he attends, which took it to the Kitsap Interfaith Council. Many communities have assembled similar meetings, inviting local people with first-hand experience in an Occupy action to share what they know, which is exactly what Keegel did. What makes this forum unique is that some local participants also happen to be at the forefront
of the national (and international) conversation about the Occupy movement. In his book “The Great Turning,” David Korten, Ph.D., wrote: “If you feel out of step with the way things are going in your community, nation, and the world, take heart. Your distress indicates that you are among the sane in an insane world and in very good company.” Korten is author of the SEE OCCUPY, A9

An ‘unstoppable’ photo? By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer
Island resident Jessica Henderson has never been the kind of person to enter sweepstakes or national contests, but something urged her to enter one last year. It seems that for Jessica, the first time is a charm. “I was browsing online one day this fall and saw an ad pop up that said ‘Is your family unstoppable?’” Jessica said. “And of course I clicked on it.” The ad was for a contest run by Smucker’s jam as a promotion for their Uncrustables sandwiches. It was asking for photo submissions of families being unstoppable. Jessica entered her family photo — a pic-
ture of her husband Craden and their three girls Sky, 6, Piper, 4, and Tallis, 2. The photo was taken in March 2011, while the family was on a hike in New Zealand – Craden’s native country. It was the first time the family had visited where he grew up. “We love adventures large and small and don’t hesitate to take the kids along,” Jessica said. “This photo is the one that I thought best captured the topic of the contest.” She didn’t think much of it after that, especially with the holiday activities at that time. Then one day, the Henderson’s phone rang. “I got a call from an agency in New York City several
weeks later informing me that we were selected by the judges to be among the top 10 finalists,” Jessica said. Now the Hendersons from Bainbridge Island are featured, along with nine other unstoppable family finalists, on the Smucker’s Uncrustables website (www. uncrustables.com). Until Feb. 15, people can go to the website and vote once a day for their favorite family photo. The first-place prize for the contest is a trip for four to Yosemite National Park and $4,000 cash. The nine runners up will receive a Smuckers gift basket. Either way the Hendersons should be pleased. According to Jessica, they love jam.

december a dry month on island While precipitation during 2011 was normal on Bainbridge Island, one of its driest Decembers in several years was recorded. In measurements recorded by Vince Mattson at his Green Spot Place home, 39.65 inches of rain fell in 2011. In the previous five years beginning in 2006, annual precipitation was 48.83, 35.87, 26.52, 37.92 and 50.57 in 2010.
In that year, 10.88 inches rain fell in December. Last year, there were only 2 recorded inches during the month, and nearly three-fourths of that fell during the last week. The heaviest rainfall year since Mattson began recording precipitation in 1993, occurred in 1997 when 61.69 inches fell. March 2011’s wet month had 9.21 inches fall on the island. The next month with the most rainfall was November, when 7.25 inches fell. The wettest three-month period in 2011 was January through March, when 16.28 inches of precipitation hit the ground. The driest period was July through September, when rain totaled only 2.37 inches.

Unocal Park gets initial approval The Unocal park project received a thumbs up Wednesday from council, which unanimously approved the volunteer group to begin planning the park. “This was an unanimous green light to proceed with the public design process,” said Bruce Weiland of the Citizen’s Park Task Force, a group formed to convert the patch of land into a park. The park won’t cost the city any money and will be financed entirely from private donations. Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park and Recreation District has also agreed to oversee the maintenance and care of the park. The group wants islanders
to offer input as to how the park will look , at least within certain perameters such as size and environment. After planning is complete, the group will bring the plan before council and the Kitsap Transit Board for further approval. It will be a process over the coming year obtaining approval and permits. “Our hope is that we will be able to break ground in September and have a ribbon-cutting in October,” Weiland said, adding that the timeframe is a very rough estimate. The site, which sits at the entrance to the city from the ferry terminal, has been vacant for 20 years after the Unocal oil company shut down operations. The land is now co-owned by the city and Kitsap Transit.
There has been considerable pollution from petroleum-based products from its years of use as a gas station. Weiland assured council that there should be no risks and that the Department of Ecology had no objection to a park at that location. According to Weiland, previous work on the land has replaced much of the topsoil, leaving the problems of pollution approximately 12 feet down. “We’ve said from day one that we are not going to do this unless it is environmentally responsible,” Weiland said. The group will hold a planning meeting Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Bainbridge Commons. For more information, call Jim Chapel at 206-842-2093.

Islandergets8yearsinprisonforJuly4crimes A 23-year-old Bainbridge Island man has been sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to three felony charges involving burglary and threatening several people with a knife on the morning of July 4, 2011. Cody Allen Ford Knight, 23, pleaded guilty on Jan. 6 to charges of first-degree burglary, first-degree attempted robbery and second-degree
assault. Kitsap County Superior Court Judge Anna M. Laurie sentenced Knight to state prison on Monday, Jan. 30. Prosecuting Attorney Jonathan Salamas had asked for the eight-year sentence. Knight was wounded during the incident after he approached a Bremerton man sitting in his vehicle on Wood Avenue.
According to police reports, Knight was brandishing a knife when he approached the man, who pulled his licensed firearm and fired three shots at Knight. Knight, who was on parole at the time, suffered three wounds and was hospitalized at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The incident began when
Knight was seen running through several back yards before entering a home on Stetson Place in Winslow. Witness said Knight took a 10-inch knife from the home and threatened a father and his son in the house. After leaving the home, he also used the knife to threaten a woman and her daughter who were driving through the area. Knight

Judge Laurie said during the sentencing that Knight was responsible for his own actions while committing the crimes.

Four new members came onto council at the start of 2012, one beating an incumbent. With the former council lineup frequently voting for or against items by a 4-3 vote, the change to the council has been hoped by some to even out the power on the dais. Three of the four new council members – Sarah Blossom, Steve Bonkowski and David Ward – publicly voiced their disapproval of Bauer’s job performance while campaigning last year. It wasn’t long after the three entered into office that discussion of Bauer’s status as city manager came up — council began discussing the matter in a series of executive sessions starting Jan. 11. “I understand a newly constituted council’s wish to set a new direction for the coming years and to have a city manager of their choosing as the city moves forward,” Bauer said in the press release. “I will assist the Council with this transition.” Bauer came to Bainbridge
PSE speaks to island’s power consumption By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer
Puget Sound Energy updated the city council Wednesday, on the utility’s plans for the island’s electrical needs. PSE representative Linda Streissguth spoke to the island’s energy use and how PSE aims to have no need for another substation as long as island power consumption is below 58 megawatts. Bainbridge has done well staying below this limit, only going above it twice during this past winter season — once on Dec. 13, 2011, reaching 65.9 megawatts, and once
again on Jan. 19, reaching 64 megawatts. One concern the company has is that even though the island may stay under the 58 megawatt limit, individual substations may experience peak loads that stress them beyond their limits. This can cause wear and reduce the life of electrical equipment. “Customers can lower their thermostats a few degrees, defer running dishwashers or doing laundry, and turn off unneeded appliances and lights,” Streissguth said. Streissguth also pointed to the island’s online energy dashboard where residents
can monitor their area’s usuage of power in real time. If they see high power consumption, they may want to cut down on use. Other updates to the council involved moving some power lines underground near the Southwest end of Eagle Harbor. PSE expects to work on this project between Spring and Fall of 2012, and will finish before the next winter storm season. The company is also looking to trim 26.5 miles of trees in areas sensitive to transmission lines and is planning to replace 51 poles on the island that have worn beyond repair.

IN OUR OPINION
Gazzam Lake’s protection is healthy for community The current effort to secure the sanctity of the Gazzam Lake Preserve (see page A1) is another example of the community’s determination to safeguard from development some of the island’s most unique and valuable woodland environments. Along with the recent purchase of the 31-acre Hilltop property, it’s clear that a majority of islanders understand the significance of locking up large parcels of land in perpetuity. Why? Primarily because if that stance isn’t taken, development will chip away at the public land until its wildlife habitat is no longer healthy. What happened at Gazzam is that more than 30 acres of land bordering the preserve was in private ownership for the purpose of developing some 15 homes. Nothing could be done about that, but a paved road was part of the deal and it would have completely altered the pristine environment. Fortunately, the owners of the private property yielded for one reason or another and agreed to sell the land to the public. If the deal is consummated in April, it will protect a pivotal aquifer and a large habitat that can be found nowhere else within a 12-mile radius of the Seattle area. Sizable second-growth forested areas have been gradually depleted during the last couple of decades. Now, only Gazzam Lake, the Grand Forest parcels (connected now by Hilltop) and the publicly restricted IslandWood properties contain contiguous wildlife habitats. But the importance of the latter two pale dramatically to the 444-acre Gazzam property. Its southwest location is a habitat blessing because it is isolated from much of the island and also borders Puget Sound.

LETTERS Plastic bags
ban on plastic bags is one small step that carries a big message.
Bainbridge Island Banning bags a small step with a big message Clearly, environment is “Necessity is the mother of invention” was coined millennia ago, but suffering due to plastic
I challenge proposed plastic bag ban naysayers to apply this wise adage to their home habits. The precept’s goal is to ensure a future where less economically advantaged nations and our oceans’ sea life are not being strangled by this planet’s current overuse of lightweight plastic carriers. My grandmother, who grew up on a turn-of-the-century family farm in Missouri and raised her own family during the Great Depression, taught me as a child the value of making do with what is often considered garbage. While reusing plastic bags is preferable to throwing them away, another alternative exists eliminating the need to manufacture them in the first place. Our household rid ourselves of not only the use of grocery store bags, but store-bought 13-gallon bags as well, and not by the replacement of brown paper. It has become a game for us – dog food bags, edamame bags from Costco, and our favorite: large Tim’s Cascade Chip bags (they never leak). The chip bags don’t look as pretty under the sink or in the bathroom, but they keep us laughing at ourselves and our consumption habits, now visible to all. Yes, there are many other ways to cut back on our nations’ dependence on oil and pollution of our Earth, but the council’s proposed
The recent proposal by Council Member Kirstin Hytopoulos that Bainbridge Island consider the banning of plastic grocery bags has evoked discussion and protest, much of it centered on the convenience of these bags, not only for items purchased at the store but for numerous uses around the home. No one can argue that plastic bags are convenient and can be used for many purposes. But they are not a necessity. In the 1950s, the era that many look back to as a golden age, plastic bags were unknown. Yet people went about their lives feeling no particular inconvenience. As late as the 1980s, European cities, including Vienna, provided no plastic bags for grocery or other customers. Even in the most exclusive areas of the city, a customer was expected to bring his own bags to transport any purchases. People live very comfortably without the convenience of plastic bags. Marine life, however, does not fare so well. Fifty plastic bags were found in the stomach of a dead whale that recently washed up on a Washington beach. An area the size of Texas, consisting of plastic waste from throw-away cultures, now exists in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, growing every day as runaway consumption continues across the globe. Plastic is ruining our environment, despoiling our scenery with road-
way litter, choking our sea mammals with plastic bags, filling our landfills to overflowing, and poisoning our oceans and creatures that depend on the oceans for sustenance. As plastics slowly degrade, their chemical components are released into the seas and into the sea life that consume the plastic particles, mistaking them for food. Finally these poisons return to us when we eat fish. Does anyone think this way of life can continue? It will have to cease at some point. No matter how many well-meaning people recycle, the majority don’t. Why continue down a road that leads to even more despoliation? I would like to see Bainbridge Island join other communities that have faced the implications of this way of doing business and have said no to plastic bags. Abigail Nazareth Bainbridge Island
Blinded by the lights My wife was coming home from an event on the island Tuesday night and was blinded by a small car that had replaced the stock headlights with some kind of laser light, on bright no less, blinding all who saw. The addition of after-market lights on all types of vehicles should not be tolerated by law enforcement. Some trucks have up to six headlights (when not on bright). If one cannot see at night, stay home instead of adding more lights blinding others. And, don’t get me started on drivers with lights that are not functioning. Ed Smith Bainbridge Island

Do our water resources have strategic value? The City Council, with four new members, may revisit the 2011 council’s resolution last December regarding transfer of the city’s Water Utility to the Kitsap Public Utility District (KPUD) instead of waiting for the end of the 18-month trial period. Because island water resources require careful stewardship to preserve them for the entire community, not just those currently served by the city’s Winslow water system, the Bainbridge Resource Group is initiating a community discussion in advance of any council deliberations on divestiture. If we relinquish control of both water resources (aquifers) and the distribution system what might that look like? Instead of a local utility managed by and accountable to islanders, all control would pass to the threemember commission of the KPUD and sideline our City Council and Utility Advisory Committee (UAC). The KPUD commission does
LETTErS Spearman family offers thanks to community On behalf of our family, we would like to thank the members
GUEST COLUMN By BOB FORTNER not meet on the island, no commissioner resides here and with only three members none may properly discuss any aspect of operation, policy, etc., with another member outside their bi-monthly public meetings. Expedient for the PUD perhaps, but our experience with three- member commissions, whose members lived here, was not salutary. Is this control question different from when we voted for all-island government? Motivation for the transfer seems to stem from city water users’ understandably frustrating experi-
ence prior to changing to a councilmanager form of government. Subsequent to the change, however, our city manager and staff have restored overall city financial stability and at the recommendation of the community-based UAC, rates generally now match those proposed by the KPUD. The trial period at those rates includes monitoring by the UAC. Granted access to utility operational and fiscal data, it is charged with bringing recommendations to the council if the city is not fulfilling its obligations to water users. What is to be gained by an imminent transfer? What might be lost? Divestiture, as opposed to sale, of the water utility (estimated value of $2.3 million), is supported by a minority of the UAC members and numerous current users, and intended to occur without compensation to the city. The cost of KPUD’s earlier purchase of the North Bainbridge
Water System (~$1,000/hookup) is charged to ratepayers over time, but city water utility users oppose a similar KPUD charge to users for the takeover. What are the real benefits of KPUD ownership if Bainbridge relinquishes both compensation and control of this vital resource? If divestiture is essential, are there scenarios in which the city is compensated for the transfer? Because Bainbridge and mainland Kitsap County both draw from the Fletcher Bay Aquifer, one of the major sources of city water, what recourse would islanders have if the resource is “owned” by the KPUD? Would island aquifer resources be negatively affected by inadequate recharge or growth in either area? Would this effect be limited or potentially involve other aquifers, private wells or other water systems? Water Utilities routinely transfer water from productive sites to areas
of greater demand. If water had to be allocated, how would those determinations be made? According to the consultant’s evaluation of divestiture, taxes and fees collected on utility services likely would decline. Sewer rates would increase because the water and sewer utilities share staff and the sewer utility would retain some of the shared staff in order to operate properly. Would KPUD operation offset sewer users’ higher monthly charges? If, after 18 months with UAC monitoring, utility operations are neither satisfactory nor efficient, divestiture or other options should be examined. With the potential to impact both current and future generations of islanders should divestiture, essentially irreversible, not involve community-wide discussions preceding a council decision?

LETTERS Plastic Bags
Ban would parallel our stewardship Recently, during a trip to the Pacific Science Center, I had to explain to my 4 year old why there was a display case filled with plastic bags, foil juice packages and other less-than biodegradable items that were found in the belly of a dead whale. It was awful. Here on the island, we have groups like Sustainable Bainbridge, Positive Energy and Community Energy Solutions. We have IslandWood, the Bloedel Reserve, Friends of the Farms, and the Bainbridge Island Land Trust. We have a significant number of bike commuters and I’ve lost count of the number of Nissan Leaf’s I’ve seen. I could go on. The effort to make our community as sustainable as possible is outstanding. In this light, I hope our new council votes 7-0 to ban plastic bags. The unintended consequences of this piece of disposable culture simply aren’t worth whatever “convenience” they may afford. Our kids deserve a clean and healthy environment. This ban would help. Chris McMasters Bainbridge Island
Convinced that 911 was an inside job I have been a member of the 911 truth movement since its inception. What astonishes me is the steadfast refusal that remains ubiquitous today when it comes to proper scientific discourse. Instead of any acknowledgement of our serious amount of facts and evidence growing exponentially, we get personal attacks, diversion tactics and outright condemnation. One prominent Bainbridge biologist insisted that I must be an expert, like the more than 1,600 architects and engineers of AE911truth.org, in order to even advance any such explanation. The science does not work for the official story. Instead, the facts and evidence underscore that 911 was an inside job and the war on terror is hoax. A rogue element seized power that day because of the fallacy of infinite monetary growth based on a finite resource or “Peak Oil.” You are either with them or against them.

prophetic “When Corporations Rule The World” and “The PostCorporate World: Life After Capitalism,” and co-founder of the Bainbridge-based, globally focused Positive Futures Network and YES! Magazine. In November, Korten attended an Occupy salon on Bainbridge Island hosted by long-time activists Linda Wolf and Eric Kuhner. For that gathering, Kuhner also invited his father Dr. Ben Kuhner, a member of the Teaparty organization Kitsap Patriots. Korten and Kuhner sat in the circle, each sharing their unique perspective, Wolf said. And while they had differing views, common ground began to emerge. Both went to Stanford University, in the same year as it turns out, and to their surprise – both lived in the same dorm.
This changes everything Keegel also invited Sarah van Gelder, executive editor and cofounder of YES! Magazine, and coeditor of “This Changes Everything,” a book that emerged a mere two months after the occupation of Zuccotti Park in New York City sparked worldwide protests. She’s traveled to numerous Occupy sites
in her work for YES! and will offer her insights Saturday. Two Occupy Seattle “chaplains,” Michael Doug las and Tsukina Blessing, will bring a spiritual perspective to the discussion, and Sydney Jourard, who slept in a tent until the Seattle encampments were dismantled, will share stories from the trenches. Van Gelder, who lives in Suquamish, also has been involved in the North Kitsap 99 percent group and the Occupy Kitsap group, which are collaborating on a county-wide action March 24, based in Little Boston. She participates in the general assembly meetings as “one of dozens of organizers, as a citizen who can bring something of my research,” she said. “Everybody can bring something.”
we’re back For Wolf, the Occupy movement has been part of a larger wave of unrest, one she saw crest at the World Trade Organization protests in Seattle in 1999.
She and islander Neva Welton collaborated on a book, “Global Uprising,” about the issues being raised. “The editing was complete on Sept. 10,” she said. “We woke up on 9/11 and the movement had shut down. It became dangerous to question the status quo. “The minute I realized ‘We’re back,’ I thought it was important to be speaking of these things.” She, Kuhner and good friends gathered days after the first tents started sprouting. “Educate yourself about the issues, and then find what you’re passionate about,” Wolf said. People who gathered at Scott’s salon identified three ways people can be involved: The first, and most obvious, was to pitch a tent, grab a Sharpee and raise your voice in a direct action or march. Some thought lasertargeted effort to affect policy and elections was most effective. Others had more interest in making lifestyle changes – learning how to live more simply, not participating in mass consumerism and Wall Street’s top-heavy agenda. Occupy Bainbridge’s focus so far has run the gamut of those three
options, but as is generally the case on the island, not without putting its own stamp on it.
This is what possibility looks like Angry youngsters pitching tents on Winslow Way isn’t exactly the island’s style, but a mob of meditators held a silent sit-in at the ferry terminal just before Thanksgiving. While visually startling, pepper spray wasn’t required to quell the “unrest” or in this case, the rest. The masses never took to the streets, but the Rev. Senji Kanaeda and Rev. Gilberto Perez, Buddhist monks from Bainbridge, could be seen drumming along SR-305 in January on their way to “Occupy Trident.” You’re not apt to see anarchists setting things ablaze, but you might get an email soon about renewing your CSA subscription for the 2012 growing season. While most policy change efforts happen behind the scenes, a steady stream of letters to the editor in local media indicates a healthy and engaged citizenry. The signs you’ll see downtown are not about decrying Wall Street, but reminding residents to ‘Think Local First.” Instead of raising a ruckus, this community raises funds for One Call for All, raises solar panels on the roof at City Hall. Sustainable Bainbridge board member Kat Gjovik’s involvement has spanned all three forms. She participated in a sign-waving
action at the ferry terminal; works with the Washington Public Bank Coalition’s efforts to establish a state bank and promoted a local “Move Your Money” campaign; she also has been one of the core proponents of establishing a sharing based network called a time bank. (See story below.) “The Occupy movement is bringing to light the dysfunctional system that is not serving ordinary people who are struggling to make ends meet,” Gjovik said. Van Gelder points to increases in requests for assistance from Helpline House as an indication that many here are struggling. Zillow, an online real estate database, lists 17 homes on the island in foreclosure today. “It’s a huge hardship,” Van Gelder said. “What you hear about is the market economy, abstract numbers, but these are families, many with young children, who are living with months of uncertainty and insecurity.” “Vulture capitalism” Van Gelder called it and the result is an enormous feeling of shame for many who were told if they worked hard and followed the rules they, too, could own a piece of the American Dream. “You cannot assume that everyone is OK,” she said. Check in with each other. Ask, ‘How are you doing?’”
Time bank grows community by pairing needs, skills New Sustainable Bainbridge initiative provides platform for sharing.
“I have such faith in the culture of self-organizing, emergence and learning as we go, and a trust in the concept and the people who are involved,” Gjovik said. “Think of yourself as a pioneer,” White said.

It’s about time
How many Bainbridge Islanders does it take to change a light bulb? That’s not a joke, it’s a real life question Kat Gjovik and others will be asking at the launch of West Sound Time Bank at Sustainable First Monday at the Commons. Gjovik’s flickering light has been annoying her for months. It’s not life threatening, not top-tier on her to-do list, really not a big deal she insists. But, like a tiny pebble in a shoe, its persistent aggravation wears on her nerves. Bruce White isn’t an electrician, but he knows enough to take a look at what might be causing the jitters: the bulb, the ballast or the wires. He’s happy to come to Gjovik’s house to take a look, particularly after receiving some valuable advice this week from Mickey Gibson about how to get more yield from his small garden. “There’s so much to know,” White said. “Having someone with some expertise apply her knowledge to my specific application saved

In this community-building system, people sign up to participate in a local pool of talents and needs, listing services that someone else may need as well as areas where they could use a lit-
tle help. The categories are limited only by the imagination of participants: a hiking partner, help in the garden, organizing a closet, writing a song for a special occasion. “Get creative!” Melissa Page said at Wednesday’s planning meeting at OfficeXPat’s. After several months of brainstorming and research, the group is unveiling the program at a potluck gathering of Sustainable Bainbridge on Monday. In the spirit of Occupy structure, leadership is shared.
For many of Wednesday’s core planners, the time bank is simply an idea whose time has come. Kema Larsen has been interested in alternative economics for several years. “Time banks make so much sense in our hard capitalist world,” she said. “When community gets woven together, it lets our humanity show through.” Leanne Stevens, who came from Suquamish to attend, heard about the idea through her resilience circle, groups of neighbors and likeminded folks who gathered last year, inspired by Chuck Collins’ presentation at The Island School. “We have to do that,” she said. “We have no reason to not do it.” In the past, some considered the time bank concept fairly radical, but when you consider that the Cedar Rapids, Iowa time bank has 99 active members, the idea doesn’t seem all that “fringe.” After careful research of the many models available, the group adopted the Portland, Maine time

GreatDecisionsatIslandWood Film screening of “Ocean Frontiers” prompts shift of venue this week.
OceanFrontiers A free special presentation of the Great Decisions Program will discuss the future of the oceans with a screening of “Ocean Frontier,” from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Feb. 4 at IslandWood, 4450 Blakely Ave. For more information, visit www.artshum.org or www. krl.org.
ith a topic as vast as the world’s oceans, Great Decisions, the multipart speakers’ series on foreign policy topics, needed a larger venue. This week the discussion moves to IslandWood where participants will get to experience a screening of the documentary “Ocean Frontiers.” Generations of people have thought and acted as though the world’s oceans were so vast as to be beyond human influence, an exhaustible source of resources. An increasing number of citizens, scientists and policymakers however, fear that the rapidly deteriorating conditions of the oceans will profoundly impact human welfare in the not too distant future. Yet because most of the ocean waters are considered part of the “commons,” it will take global cooperation and policies to not only avert ocean ecosystem collapse, but to govern the increased competition among nations for control over its dwindling resources. Like climate change, the problem of savings the oceans can
seem overwhelming, especially at the individual level. To help citizens grapple with the issues, Great Decisions this week will begin with a screening of the documentary,
“Ocean Frontiers,” by Green Fire Productions. The 80-minute film will be in lieu of the usual Foreign Policy Association DVD. The post-film discussion will be
moderated by Karen AnspacherMeyer, executive director of Green Fire Productions, and Bainbridge Islander James Brennan, marine habitat specialist at the University of Washington and an advisor to Washington Sea Grant. In addition to discussing the issue of ocean stewardship from a local and national perspective, the role of the U.S. in the international arena – including its failure thus far to ratify the United Nation’s Convention on the Law of the Sea – will be addressed. The event is presented by The Arts & Humanities Council, Kitsap Regional Library and IslandWood More information about “Ocean Frontiers” and suggested background readings can be found at www.artshum.org (click on “Great Decisions”) and www.krl.org or by calling 842-7901.

The Spartans’ Swim and Dive team entered Friday’s Metro League Prelims coming off a convincing dualmeet victory over Seattle Prep. Led again by Andrew and Todd McCarthy, the Spartans dominated Seattle Prep by winning 109-67. Andrew McCarthy set a new best in the 200 free with a time of 1:44.65, and also dominated the 500 free with a time of 4:40.78. Todd McCarthy made state qualifying times in both 50 free and 100 breast. Andrew McCarthy’s times in both the 200 and 500 free are tops in Class 3A competition. He also ranks third in the state in the 100 fly and 200 individual medley events. Todd McCarthy boasts the best times in 3A and Metro in both the 100 back and 100 fly. The Spartans also claim the top times in the Metro League in the 200 medley relay, 200 free relay, and 400 free relay. They rank second in the state behind

Gymnasts on a roll
Led by star freshmen Sarah Rice the Spartans finished their gymnastics season with a 12-0 record. Still, head Coach Cindy
Guy considers the undefeated record as being “water under the bridge” as they prepare for the Metro Championships on Friday, Feb. 3. The Spartans scored 164.2 points to Kingston’s 139 and North Kitsap’s 134 in winning a Jan. 27 competition. Rice won all four individual events and the all-around. “Sarah had a great meet, winning all five events and
scoring her highest allaround points (35.65) of the season,” said Guy. Guy said her team has a lot of all-around depth, and has had some tremendous practices in recent weeks. “We have had time to add in some new things, and the girls are pumped,” said Guy. Guy believes her team is one of the favorites for the Metro League Championships,
“We have the confidence to achieve what we set out to do,” said head wrestling Coach Dan Pippinger. Coming off three more wins on Tuesday – defeating Franklin 54-12, Chief Sealth 57-18 and West Seattle 27-6 – Pippinger said he is excited about seeing his wrestlers reach their goal of challenging for the team title at the Metro League Championships, which also begin Friday, Feb. 3. Pippinger said O’Dea will be the biggest test for the Spartans and that the competition for the team title will go down to the wire. As the Spartans have recovered from injuries, and have begun to polish things up, Pippinger said, they are beginning to peak at the right time. “I hope we peak at state because that’s when they all need to be at their best,” said Pippinger. The event will begin at 3 p.m. at Chief Sealth High.

60-49 win on Chief Sealth’s homecourt last Saturday. Entering Friday’s home game against Chief Sealth, the boys are 9-10 overall and 5-9 in league play. A loss tonight would threaten the team’s playoff chances. While there are several strong boys’ teams in the Metro League again this year, the Spartans have been unable to challenge the better teams for a full four quarters. For example, the Spartans trail only 32-28 at halftime Tuesday at Rainier Beach, but the powerful Vikings outscore their visitors 47-20 in the second half for a 79-48 win. Bainbridge continues to get consistent scoring from Chris Bell (21.5 points per game) and Rico Failla (12.8 ppg), but there a considerable dropoff from there.
Blake Swanson’s 7 points per game ranks third among the team’s scorers. While Nicole Hebner’s girls team has been fortunate to play three of the league’s worst teams during its winning streak, the coach believes the Spartans are playing some of their best basketball right now. The Spartans have been able to hang with most teams this season except Cleveland (15-2), Seattle Prep (143) and Franklin (13-3). Cleveland is ranked fourth in 3A, while Seattle Prep is sixth and Franklin seventh. The girls also have a strong duo, led by Hanna Depew’s 16.5 points per game, followed by 13.2 ppg by Grace Kenyon. Depth has also been a problem with Wesley Nottingham the third leading scorer on the team with a 6.1 average.

valued, such as on an island located only a brief ferry ride away from downtown Seattle. All of which leads to a 30-acre plot of private land on which the parcel’s owners wanted to build some 15 homes on the downhill slope bordering the preserve, which is owned and looked after by the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District. Owners of six parcels sought a public road easement so residents could gain access to Marshall Road, which dead ends at the north end of the park. Walt and Nora McGraw, a couple with two young children who live closest to the north entrance to the park, opposed (“Save Gazzam”) the easement because the proposed paved road through the park would go across a portion of their property. And also because they want the land to be permanently protected. The landowners filed a lawsuit in 2008 and there was a stalemate for a period after a judge denied the plaintiffs’ request for sum-
mary judgment. Eventually negotiations began because the property owners realized the opposition was formidable and getting their money back was the best approach. So the park district, which wasn’t part of the lawsuit, agreed to pay about twothirds of the purchase price of $800,000 sought by the owners; and $225,000 would be raised by the community (“Keep Gazzam Wild”). The deal would then be consummated by April 22, 2012. “We’re about $70,000 short right now,” fundraising director Karen Molinari said Tuesday. “We’re optimistic that we’re going to make our goal on April 1. We had a slow start, not really getting under way until last fall. We realize it’s tough right now for any fundraising effort, but it’s important for the island.” Legally, if the drive isn’t successful, then the deal’s off and the lawsuit could be kick-started again, said Ryan Vancil, the park district’s attorney. “It’s anyone’s guess what would happen if they do come up short,” Vancil said. “They could negotiate an extension of the option, though it would certainly increase the cost. And the

district board could decide to go ahead and pay what’s remaining, though that hasn’t been brought up.” There’s also the possibility of a bridge loan granted by the Bainbridge Island Land Trust, which is acting as the fiduciary agent for Keep Gazzam Wild. But the campaign, according to Molinari and others, is beginning to gain momentum.
“We’re letting people know about the situation and we’re getting some positive feedback in the form of large donations,” said Molinari. “So we feel good about it.” One of the selling points is that this is a window of opportunity that soon may close. This point of view was made clear by naturalist Stan Rullman, who is currently on the IslandWood staff and

evaluated the Gazzam Lake Preserve in 2010. He said: “Projected growth patterns in Puget Sound indicated that more conversion of forest land to development is inevitable, despite the current downturn in the economy and slow down in new construction. This lull in development and decline in property values may indeed allow for the acquisition of key properties at lower market values, making this a most cost-effective opportunity.” There’s no doubt, Molinari pointed out, that a price of $27,000 per acre for land that would offer west-facing views of the Puget Sound is a good deal and is indicative of the good faith of the current property owners. Another point made by Rullman and others, including Walt McGraw, is that the undeveloped parcels located in a key downslope area west of the lake, and any development there would dramatically alter the amount and quality of the interior forest that makes the preserve such a valuable resource for wildlife and Puget Sound residents. “It would ruin it,” McGraw said while walking through the park with his 3-year-old
son Wiley, who appears to have taken to the land as if it’s his back yard – which it is. “Now, there’s really very little access, especially on the south side of the lake. But what’s so remarkable is the quiet, the silence. There’s no drone of vehicles. The only noise here is that of nature.” As Rullman said in his report: “The one thing that stands out prominently is the relative silence from people and their sounds. …It’s a protected soundscape, where the loudest sound is the chorus of frogs, the laughter of children and the tumbling song of the Winter Wren.” The people and groups involved in saving the pristine part of the island have no doubts about the importance of putting a permanent hold on the property. And if you’re a doubter, they suggest taking a walk through the reserve’s four miles of trails.
Walk Gazzam trail The campaign will offer walks at Gazzam each Saturday, beginning at 1 p.m. on Feb. 11 from the Marshall Road entrance. For more information or to donate, visit www. keepgazzamwild.org.

Trainer a strength at fitness lab By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer
If you ever meet James Bowman you won’t forget it. His enthusiastic presence immediately consumes a room, jumping from one passionate topic to another. It is easy to see how a celebrity personal trainer from Manhattan was able to move to Bainbridge Island and within two years have a growing fitness gym attracting people from all over the country. Bowman’s Strength Lab is not your average gym, and Bowman isn’t just a personal trainer. Through Bowman alone, clients have access to a trainer skilled in cardio, massage, nutrition, neurosomatic therapy, even applied combat systems (mixed martial arts with a fitness angle) and more. “It takes more than just one level,” Bowman said. “You have to look at all of it.” Strength Lab has weights, machines and other exercise equipment, and classes just like any other gym. The difference is Bowman and his approach to fitness. For him the emphasis is treating the body. He does this by looking at training from multiple angles and with an arsenal of knowledge gained on how to treat the human body. “Strengthlab is a melting pot of all these different strength and conditioning methods,

James Bowman could likely lift a 40-pound kettlebell in his sleep. manual methods, therapy methods, analysis methods,” Bowman said. “Right now you may go to a chiropractor, a massage therapists and a personal trainer, but they don’t have time to coordinate your treatment.” Ten years ago, Bowman was living a personal trainer’s dream. He was working in New York City training movie stars and athletes, and was featured in magazines such as Shape and Vogue. “When I left Manhattan I was training eight (people) a day, including Anne Hathaway, Claire Danes, John Leguizamo and Troy Murphy,” he said. “If the career was the only motivating factor, I would have stayed there, but that’s not what I wanted. I wanted a family. I wanted to live in a place where I could mountain
climb and hike and ski.” Bowman experienced first hand the events in New York on Sept. 11, 2001. After living through the experience and the following terrorist scares, he began to plan for a future somewhere other than New York. It eventually led to Bainbridge Island, where his wife grew up, to start a new business. In 2009, supplied only with a set of kettlebells and his car, Bowman started with one client. It wasn’t long before he was driving all over the island to work with others. Then he moved the business into his barn, but that couldn’t handle the increasing volume of work. Finally, Bowman’s Strength Lab landed in the Sportsman Club Business Complex. While the economy suf-
fered, Strength Lab kept growing. Now Bowman not only attracts islanders but also people from elsewhere. “I have people from Florida and New York coming here,” Bowman said. “Probably every month we have someone coming from off the island.” In one corner of Bowman’s gym is a simple, unassuming room. While some gyms throw clients right into a workout, Bowman will initially analyze the person’s body. When someone first comes to Strength Lab, they will spend over an hour with Bowman in this room analyzing and examining how their personal body works. “What we are trying to do is affect postural and movement based on changes in the body for the better,” Bowman said. “So we start by analyzing someone’s structure, the way they are built, then we look at the way they move, then we look at where points of pain are. Then we ask, ‘What is this coming from?’” In keeping with his vibrant character, Bowman doesn’t plan on slowing down. For him, there is always more to learn and more people to train. “For example, for my massage license I have to complete 20 hours of education every two years,” Bowman said. “I’m over 200 for this year and I’m hungry for more.”

FYI POLICE BLOTTER Bainbridge Police reported the following incidents: Jan. 30 2:19 p.m. A resident living on Manzanita Road reported to police that her new next-door neighbor came over and was verbally aggressive with her, causing her children to cry. The neighbor came to the front door of the woman’s home and complained that her dogs bark too much. According to the woman the man owns dogs himself who also bark and often the dogs will bark at each other. The woman attempted to discuss the matter with her neighbor, but the man instead continued to yell and curse at her. He did not threaten her, but she felt it was something she should make a report of. Jan. 31 2:57 a.m. Police received a report of an injured woman in her home. The call taker noted that the man on the phone kept changing his story and felt that police should be notified. The residence had a history of domestic violence so police were dispatched to check on the situation. Upon arriving at the scene, police found a man who had an active protection order filed on him that intended to keep him
away from the woman living at the residence. The man said that the woman invited him over for some food. After eating the two were dancing in the kitchen when the woman slipped and broke her arm as she fell. When police spoke with the woman they noticed a number of other injuries which she said were from other incidents from days before. The woman backed up the man’s story further saying that she had mopped the floor two days ago and the floor was still slippery. She had turned on some Rod Stewart music and the two began dancing when she fell. Even though the woman invited the man over, he was still in violation of the protection order and was taken to jail. 6:22 p.m. A woman visiting the island reported that her car, parked in an alley behind Winslow Way, was broken into and items were stolen. Upon returning to her vehicle, she discovered that someone had thrown a rock through the passenger side window to gain access. Her wallet containing credit cards and cash that was laying on the front seat was overlooked, but her purse and work cell phone were taken. Her purse contained a digital camera, sunglasses, gloves, hat, a checkbook and bills. The estimated value of the items taken is approximately $1070. The investigation continues.

Lucille A. Galbraith died on Jan. 8 in Seattle. A memorial service will be held Feb. 25 at 1 p.m. at the Filipino American Community Hall, 7566 High School Rd. The full version of Lucille’s tribute can be found in the Jan. 27 Review or online at www.BainbridgeReview.com.
Liberty Bay Auto Center opened its doors to customers for the first time after my first birthday. For as long as I can remember the dealership has been like a second home to me, and a few of the employees still here can remember me running around the showroom and offices making it my playground. With only five employees at the beginning today it holds over 40 employees. Six of them being in the sales department and selling approximately thousand cars a year, I can now say that one of those six employees includes myself. Surprisingly the majority of our employees are stationed in the only AAA awarded top mechanic shop, and also our full service shop that will see over 10,000 cars a year. Born and raised in and around Kitsap County, attending Kingston and Suquamish Elementary and finishing High School with a diploma at Bainbridge Island High where both of my parents graduated from, I couldn’t be happier being a part of Poulsbo’s history and taking a step into one of the most well known, well appreciated car dealerships around.

Joy Considine Bryce, age 93
Joy Bryce, formerly of Bainbridge Island and Poulsbo, died in Post Falls, Ida., Jan. 12. Born Joy Winifred Considine on July 4, 1918, she grew up in Powder River County in Montana. In 1957, she moved with her second husband, Bruce Allgaier, to Bainbridge Island. Together they raised eight children by previous marriages. Joy worked some two decades as a secretary in the Seattle law office of state Senator Martin Durkan. In 2010 Joy moved to Post Falls in March 2011 to be closer to her eldest sons. Preceding Joy in death were her parents; brothers Joe, Robert, and Keith Considine; her four husbands; and daughter Vonda Siler. She is survived by sons Randy, Bruce, and Brian Siler; step daughters Carolynn Schiedler, Ellen Fountain, Ann Conner, and Kathryn Zaremski; and brother Barney Considine. At her request, there will not be a memorial service.
Sharon Elizabeth Anderson April 26, 1944 - January 27, 2012
Welcome Tyler Church!
She panned for gold in the Yukon with a two-year old at her side; and, with her husband of 45 years, peeked at Yellow-Eyed Penguins in New Zealand and rubbed noses with a Maori chieftain; she camped in Monument Valley and thrilled to magnificent Elk and Bighorn Sheep in the Canadian Rockies. Back in Seattle, she kissed a Killer Whale and each year cheered on the hydroplanes. But most of all she was the ultimate caregiver. She championed the ethical care of senior citizens and put her job on the line to put that care ahead of profits and misguided priorities. She raised a valedictorian and champion athlete and kept her husband fed, clothed and comfortable. Sharon was a Registered Nurse for 44 years in California and Washington, but it was her many years as a Director of Nursing in Kitsap County that forged new friendships and inspired those with whom she worked. Others may remember her as someone that would listen when it seemed no one else would. She came from hard-working immigrant parents. Her father was Gordon Robert Malham Stacey a Baptist Minister, born in England, while her mother was Kathleen Joanne (Huisson) Lathrop who made the difficult trip from Holland to a new land. Sharon began her nursing career ironically as an ICU nurse and it would end in an ICU after supreme and caring efforts by the staff of Bremerton’s Harrison Hospital. She is survived by husband, Greg of Bainbridge Island; his sister Lynn Leary (Bob) and nephews, Matthew and Christopher of Berkeley, CA.; Greg’s brother, Arnold Foss and nephew and nieces, Matthew, Elizabeth Ann and Suzanne of Seattle; their daughter’s family, Stacey Anderson (Sue Harris) and children Kaylee, Jacqui and Jessi of Shelton; her brother’s family; Robert Stacey (Terry Baughn), with nieces Lorna Lynn of Bullhead City, AZ and Julia (Josh Brooks) and great-niece Adella of Seattle. A celebration of her life will be held at the family home on April 21, 2012. TRIBUTE Paid Notice
John Benjamin Vincent September 1, 1915 - January 18, 2012 John Benjamin Vincent, died on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at The Wyatt House on Bainbridge Island, Washington. He was born on September 1, 1915 in Kalamazoo, Mich. He was 96 years of age. John was a resident of Bainbridge Island, Wash. and had also lived in Berkeley, Calif. and overseas in India and China. He was educated at Harvard University in Political Science. He later worked as a professional photographer and photojournalist. John was a WWII Veteran. He was a member of the Port Madison Yacht Club, where he was a summer sailing school instructor, a member of the Bainbridge Island Senior Center and St. Barnabas Episcopal Church. John took the first set of colored photographs of the Buddhist Caves at Tun Huang on the Silk Road in NW China. He was a published author. John will be greatly missed. He was the beloved husband of Irene Vongehr Vincent for 57 years before she died in 1997. He was a devoted father, grandfather, loving uncle and loyal friend. His passions, in addition to his family and friends, were many and varied. He was a self-described “culture vulture” who particularly enjoyed the ballet, symphony and opera. He was an avid museum-goer. His travels were legendary and there were few places he had not been by the end of his 96 years. He also admitted to having “news-heimers disease” which kept him reading two or three newspapers daily as well as following PBS News. He spent many happy hours reading the newspapers in the Bainbridge Public Library. The Wyatt House became his home and the residents there his extended family during the last years of his life. John is survived by his children: Jamini Vincent Davies of Pittsburgh, Penn., Bronwyn Vincent (Sherwin Cotler) of Olympia, Wash., Junda Matson of Ore., John E. Vincent (Laurie) of Valley Glen, Calif. There are six grandchildren: Malindi Nan Davies, Briony Davies Raymond (Luke), John L. Brottem IV (Kathryn Clark), Leif V. Brottem (Florentina), Catherine Matson and Trevor S. Vincent; great-grandchildren: Avery and Alexandra Brottem (twin daughters of John and Kathryn). John also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews including E. Christopher Vincent (Jennifer) of Mercer Island, Wash., as well as family friends: Barbara Robbins, Kaili and Barry Cannon, George and Lind Carr. He was preceded in death by his dear wife Irene. Family and friends are respectfully invited to attend the Memorial Service, at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church on Bainbridge Island March 31 at 1:00. Memorial contributions can be made to the Bainbridge Island Public Library, 1270 Madison North, BI, WA 98110. Please sign the online Guest Book for the family at www.cookfamilyfuneralhome.com.

Samantha Camp, Jenifer Gillis Rifenbery, Sylvia Shaw, Courtney Turnley and Christine Usher star in “Nunsense” at the Western Washington Center for the Arts in Port Orchard.
‘NUNSENSE’ AT WWCA IN PORT ORCHARD PORT ORCHARD — “Nunsense,” the second-longestrunning off-Broadway show in history, is being staged through Feb. 26 at the Western Washington Center for the Arts in Port Orchard. “Nunsense” is a musical comedy with a book, music, and lyrics by Dan Goggin. Originating as a line of greeting cards, Goggin expanded the concept into a cabaret that ran for 38 weeks and eventually into a full-length musical. The original off-Broadway production opened Dec. 12, 1985, running for 3,672 performances. It won four Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Best Off-Broadway Musical. It was produced as a TV movie in 1993 starring Rue McClanahan. “Nunsense” is about a fundraiser put on by the Little Sisters of Hoboken to raise money to bury sisters accidentally poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia. The Western Washington Center for the Arts production is updated with new jokes, additional lyrics, two new arrangements and a new song. The center is located at 521 Bay St., Port Orchard.

Continued from page 1 feeling. Magazines, books and puzzles are neatly stacked for use. Coffee brews on the back counter. A handwritten sign welcomes you to jury duty. But before you confuse a visit to the juror’s office with a social call, Blackstock and Sleeth want to remind you that a summons is a legal document, not an invitation to a party. While they try to make the experience as pleasant as possible, intentionally neglecting your summons is against the law and is considered a misdemeanor. For the system to work, it’s imperative for citizens to follow the printed instructions on their summons. THE SUMMONS
Each week, the jury office sends out about 700 summonses to citizens. Of those 700, only about half of the recipients are able to serve on a jury. The other half will either have scheduling conflicts, childcare issues, an illness or other issues. They will need to either reschedule to a more convenient week or, if they qualify, may ask to be permanently excused. “How was I selected?” The pool of jurors is randomly selected from a database that is made up from voter registration and Department of Licensing information. It is possible to be summoned twice in one year if your name is different on your voter registration than on your state issued identification card or drivers license. For example, if on your voter registration you are listed as “Will Smith” but on your
driver’s license you are “William Smith,” the system will recognize you as two different people and could potentially send out two summonses. “I received a summons. Now what?” Fill out the confidential juror profile and mail it back to the office, or fill out the profile online. This needs to be completed within five days of receiving the summons. The qualification questions determine your eligibility to serve on a jury. For instance, if you have been convicted of a felony and your civil rights haven't been restored, you are not qualified to serve on a jury. You are also ineligible if you cannot communicate in English, no longer reside in Kitsap, are younger than 18, or are not a U.S. citizen. “What if I already served on a jury within the past year?” If you have served on a state, federal or municipal jury, you may request to be excused. You will need to show evidence if you served outside of Kitsap County. (If you served inside the county, the clerks will verify that you indeed did serve.) Blackstock said oftentimes people’s recollections are off by a year or two. “They will tell me, ‘I know I served recently.’ And then I'll look it up and they served in 2008,” she said. “What if I can't serve the week I am scheduled to appear?” You can ask for a deferral and reschedule your service. You are allowed to request a deferral up to four times per year. After the fourth request, the system will not grant you a fifth deferral.
Erin Jennings / Kitsap Week
Note: Mailing summonses and reminder cards cost money. If something arises and you are no longer able to serve during your rescheduled week, call the jury office as soon as possible to rebook. Each mailed summons costs about $2. While this is not a significant sum on an individual basis, it quickly adds up.
MYTHS AND MYSTERIES OF JURY DUTY
“If I say I’m available, I’ll have to report and sit there all week, even if I’m not needed.” Beginning at 6 p.m. on the Friday prior to the week you are to report, you should call the jury hotline and see if you have been selected to appear on Monday. If you aren’t selected for Monday, call back again Monday evening. Again, if you aren’t selected, you call in on Tuesday evening, and so on for the week. Potentially, your group may never get called and your week of service is then complete. If you call in and your group is scheduled to
report, you need to show up on time on your scheduled day. If you are not selected for the jury, you will have completed your service and no longer need to call in to report. If you report for jury duty and are seated on a jury, you will serve until the trial is completed. “I’m a senior citizen and am automatically exempt from serving as a juror.” If you are over the age of 75, you can request to be excused or permanently disqualified. However, your age doesn’t preclude you from serving. In fact, Blackstock said some of the best jurors are those in their 70s, 80s and 90s. “They have a sense of civic duty and patriotism and are very dependable,” she said. “We don’t discriminate on the basis of age.” (However, you must be 18 or older.) “I can’t be away from my family overnight.” A juror would only be required to stay away overnight if the jury was

Often affecting the toes, gout is caused by a build-up of uric acid, a by-product of urate, which is naturally produced by the body and certain high-protein foods. Your podiatrist can prescribe medication that will help prevent gout, but there are steps you can take to make it less likely to occur.

sequestered. In the 22 years that Blackstock has worked for Kitsap County’s court system, she cannot recall a time that this happened. “I can’t afford to miss a week of work.” The jury administration office cannot excuse people for work or financial hardships. If your group is selected to report, you must show up. However, the judge will review work and financial hardships prior to jury selection and at that time you may discuss your issue. “I’m a police officer. I won’t be selected to serve on a jury.” Police officers, attorneys and even judges have served on Kitsap juries. Uniformed personnel must report for jury duty in civilian clothing. “I’m a teacher. I can’t miss a week from my students.” Call the jury administration office. You can reschedule your week of service during a school
break. “If I’m summoned in Kitsap County, I will have to report to the courthouse in Port Orchard.” Kitsap County Jury Administration provides jurors five locations across the county. If your group is selected, you will be told where to report, which may or may not be Port Orchard. “My boss won’t allow me time off for jury duty." Employers must respect your summons to appear. Washington state law says, “Any employer shall provide an employee with sufficient leave of absence from employment to serve as a juror when that employee is summoned. An employer shall not deprive an employee of employment or threaten, coerce, or harass an employee, or deny an employee promotional opportunities because the employee receives a summons, serves as a juror, or attends court for prospective jury service.” (See RCW 2.36.165.) The jury administration office can provide you with proper documentation to prove you were on jury duty.
THE INS AND OUTS OF JURY DUTY
“Will I get paid to serve?” If you report to jury duty, you will receive $10 per day, plus mileage. Right now the mileage rate is 51 cents per mile. “If I’m selected to serve, do I continue to call the hotline to check my group number?” Once selected to sit on a jury, you are under jurisdicSee JURY DUTY, Page 3

Blackstock said. “The jury should be of one’s peers, which means a wide range of citizens in your community.” Every trial is different and every judge orders jurors differently. Some judges are confident that they can seat a jury from a pool of 35-40 potential jurors. Others want more wiggle room and will call 65. Sometimes there are weeks when the court system depletes the pool of jurors, resulting in a delay of trial.
There is no doubt about it, jurors are an important part of our judicial system. And for the courtroom drama lovers, it’s a great way to be exposed to the real deal. Sure, you’ve heard the legal terms “objection” and “overruled” countless times on television and in movies, but witnessing an actual courtroom scene is memorable and educational. And that’s the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

It’s a no-brainer: If you smell smoke, call 911
t was supposed to cause a laugh or two, not catch our kitchen on
fire. For my son’s birthday, we thought we’d be clever and use trick candles. You know the ones — they relight after the birthday person blows them out, causing surprise and another round of wishing. My daughter wanted to give one a trial run before pulling the prank on her brother. And this is where I goofed. I wasn’t in the kitchen with her when she lit the candle. The candle didn’t relight after she blew it out and thinking it was faulty, she tossed it into the trash underneath the sink. But apparently it did light— just not immediately. I’d say 10 minutes passed before she yelled, “The trash is on fire.” Sure enough, flames leapt from under the sink, and dark smoke began to fill the kitchen.
ASK ERIN By ERIN JENNINGS My husband and I grabbed the nearby fire extinguisher, and with shaky hands and beating hearts, extinguished the fire. The plastic trash can melted onto the cabinet floor, leaving globs of hardened plastic. The inside of the cabinet door is scorched. But other than that, the fire didn’t cause much damage. But, oh, there could have been. My mind can’t help but play “what if ” games. What if my daughter left the kitchen and didn’t notice the fire? How long would it have taken for the
smoke alarms to sound? What if we went out to dinner, like we originally planned? Let’s revisit where I goofed. Growing up, whenever I was asked to light the dining room candles, I used old-fashioned matches. I was taught that after blowing out the match, I needed to run it under water, listening for the telltale sound of the “Hsssss.” My daughter, who has lit numerous candles, has always used a butane lighter. With a click of a button, the flame appears and disappears. She didn’t know to place recently lit items under water. I should have taught her that. And I should have been in the same room with her as she handled an open flame. All this got me thinking about fire safety so I contacted Assistant Chief Luke Carpenter, fire marshal for the Bainbridge Fire Department, for advice.
There are three categories of fire. Class A involves paper, wood and trash. Class B involves flammable liquids and grease. Class C fires are electrical. When purchasing fire extinguishers for the home, Carpenter recommends buying the all-purpose kind that can handle all classes of fire. He also recommends having at least two allpurpose fire extinguishers. He suggested keeping one in the kitchen and one in the garage. Good to know: Residential extinguishers are for single use. Once you use the extinguisher, you need to purchase another one.
Carpenter called smoke detectors the “cheapest insurance you can buy” and said they should be installed inside and outside of every bedroom. Newly constructed homes have strict codes regarding sufficient detectors. Older homes may only have one and in extreme cases, Carpenter has seen homes with
none at all. And that is just not safe. At around $12 each, smoke detectors can alert you to smoke and fire, giving you precious time to exit the house safely. Good to know: Change batteries in smoke detectors at least once a year. As an easy reminder, the Bainbridge Fire Department recommends “Change your clock, change your batteries” to coincide with daylight saving time. And by all means, if your detector begins to “chirp,” change the battery.
Statistics show the visibility in a house can go from crystal clear to practically zero visibility in a matter of a couple of minutes. It’s important to practice an exit drill with your family. To simulate intense smoke, Carpenter recommends blindfolding family members and having them crawl out. Good to know: Most homes have an abundance of plastic. Burning plastic gives off dark smoke, causing poor visibility and
toxic vapors. Carpenter said the increase of plastics in the home has caused more deaths due to smoke inhalation than from pervious generations. This makes practicing an exit drill even more important.
This is a no-brainer, but if your house is on fire, call 911. Good to know: Carpenter said even though we extinguished the fire ourselves, we still should have called the fire department. The reason? Sometimes fire can get into little areas not easily visible. The fire department knows what to look for and is specially equipped to make sure the fire is completely out. When I said, “But I didn’t want to be a bother,” Carpenter replied, “Call us. We live to be bothered.”

Hamilton Cellars finds a delicious niche NW WINES
BY ANDY PERDUE AND ERIC DEGERMAN
Wine Press Northwest
fter a couple of false starts, Hamilton Cellars in Richland got rolling a year ago — and is already releasing startlingly superb wines. Russ and Stacie Hamilton began thinking about opening their namesake winery a half-decade ago and worked on creating a wine village in the heart of Washington wine country. They purchased land for their idea, and that’s where the problems began. The city of West Richland sold land to the Hamiltons, who began moving forward with their concept. Unfortunately, the city didn’t own the land — the Bureau of Land Management did, and BLM wasn’t selling. The Hamiltons found land in nearby Kennewick, but the bank wouldn’t loan them money because of pending litigation over the first piece of land. In the meantime, the city of Richland changed some zoning laws to allow tasting rooms inside city limits, so the Hamiltons used a building they already owned that wasn’t far from three other wineries. And in January 2011, Hamilton Cellars opened. The Hamiltons are savvy business people, with Russ

the chief technology officer for the world’s largest solar company in China and Stacie running a wealthmanagement firm. But it took them several months to get a handle on the wine industry. “The first year has been a real learning experience,” Stacie said. “Until you’re actually in it, you can’t know. It’s been a busy, interesting year.” Hamilton started on the right foot by hiring Charlie Hoppes as its winemaker. Hoppes was the red winemaker for Chateau Ste. Michelle before moving on to Three Rivers Winery in 1999 and later his own Fidelitas Wines on Red Mountain. Because Fidelitas is focused heavily on Cabernet Sauvignon, the Hamiltons decided to look for a differ-
ent niche, and they chose wisely with Malbec, which has recently become one of the hottest “new” wine varieties in Washington. “We loved Malbec from the first one we tried,” Stacie said. Under the Hamilton label, Hoppes makes a straight Malbec, a rosé of Malbec and a Malbecbased blend. Additionally, he crafts Cab, Merlot and a Semillon-Viognier blend for the Hamiltons. Hamilton Cellars has grown to about 2,000 cases already, and Stacie sees it topping out around 10,000 in the future — if and when Russ ever retires. He spends about six months of the year in China, which leaves Stacie in charge of the winery. “It’s my baby,” she said. “He was supposed to have retired by now, but we Skype and text every day to discuss major decisions about the winery.” Such is life in this era of technology and global flattening. Earlier this year, Hamilton began to distribute its wines in the Seattle area, so check with your favorite merchant or call the winery directly at (509) 628-8227.
