School board director charged with DUI By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer

John G. Tawresey, a member of the Bainbridge Island School Board, was arrested Wednesday evening for alleged hit-and-run and driving under the influence of alcohol. Tawresey, 67, of Gowen Place on Bainbridge Island, hit at least one vehicle outside the San Carlos restaurant on Madison Avenue, police said. Witnesses said he tried to drive away, but bystanders prevented him from doing so by standing in front of his vehicle as they called 911.

“About 8:30 (Wednesday) night we got a call on a hit-and-run accident with the causing driver trying to leave the scene,” said Lt. Bob Day of the Bainbridge Island Police Department. “We got there, we investigated, and ultimately concluded that (Tawresey) had been drinking. He was taken into custody for DUI.” Police gave a sobriety test to determine if Tawresey was able to operate his vehicle, but he refused to take a breath test at the scene and refused another at the police station, police said.

Brian Kelly has been named editor of the Bainbridge Island Review newspaper. A veteran print and online journalist, Kelly, 47, has been the editor of the twice-weekly South Whidbey Record for the past six years. Prior to his time on Whidbey Island, he was a Brian Kelly re p or te r at the Herald in Everett and The Seattle Times, and was the editor of the Snoqualmie Valley Record for seven years. He got his start in the news business as an Army photographer, where he worked for a newspaper in Germany for three years. “Brian is an award-winning journalist with a reputation for solid investigative reporting,” Review Publisher Donna Etchey said. “We cannot be more pleased to have Brian as part of our team here in Kitsap.”

During the last four years of his tenure at South Whidbey, the Record won more than 75 state and national journalism awards, including General Excellence honors from the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association in 2011. The publication also earned recognition as a “Newspaper of the Year” for being one of the top newspapers for its size in the United States and Canada in 2008, an honor bestowed by the Suburban Newspapers of America organization. A 1992 graduate of the University of Oregon’s School of Journalism, Kelly is an insufferable Ducks fan, especially during football season. He is married, and met his wife Leslie, a longtime journalist who has worked at dailies in Kansas and Washington, while they both worked at the Herald in Everett. The couple do not have children. Kelly will start at the Review on March 5. He succeeds Dennis Anstine, who has left the Review to pursue other interests.

Second waterfront home destroyed by fire By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer

Bainbridge Island firefighters took down a blaze at a home in Rolling Bay Thursday. It was the second fire to destroy a waterfront home in one week. The latest blaze was at 10820 Rolling Bay Walk. Fire Chief Hank Teran said the fire was “suspicious in nature” in that the house was one of a number of abandoned homes on the Rolling Bay Walk waterfront and therefore had no occupants. It was not served by utilities, including power. The homes had been abandoned due to the risk of mudslides from the hillside above them. An investigation into the fire to determine its cause remains underway. Firefighters responded to the call at 10:15 a.m. and by 12:30 p.m. had brought it under control. Though some “hotspots” in the home remained and firefighters continued to extinguish the fire afterward, Teran said.

Approximately 30 firefighters were on scene to combat the fire, including members from the Bainbridge Island Fire Department, the Poulsbo Fire Department, and the North Kitsap Fire and Rescue. The Seattle fire boat Leschi as well as Bainbridge Island’s own fire boat Marine 21 also responded and provided support from the shoreline. The home was directly on the shoreline with a view of the Seattle skyline. On Sunday, another island waterfront home on Country Club Road at Restoration Point was also destroyed by fire. An old chimney was found to be the source of the fire. The Bainbridge Island Fire Department responded to that blaze at 6:14 a.m. When firefighters arrived at the two-story house, it was already engulfed in flames and heavy smoke. By the time the fire was under control at 8:30 a.m. the house was completely destroyed.

Estimated value of the structure and the items lost within the blaze are $1.78 million. “It looks like a fire started in a 100-year old fireplace,” said Fire Marshal Luke Carpenter. “It got through the brick and the mortar and started a fire in combustible surfaces of the house.” According to a BIFD press release, the fireplace failed to prevent heat from reaching the original portion of the house. This caused wood that was in direct contact with the back of the fireplace to ignite. There were five people staying in the home over the weekend. Two were sleeping in the home while three stayed in the guest house next door. All were able to evacuate the home safely, although one occupant was taken to Harbor View Medical Center in Seattle for smoke inhalation. A firefighter was also sent to Harborview and was treated for first- and second-degree burns caused by radiant heat from the

years old and approximately 4,000 square feet. It overlooked Puget Sound facing Mount Rainier. The property contained two buildings

including the main house where the fire began. There was also a separate guest house that received damage caused by the radiant heat of the house fire, but firefighters were able to save it from further damage. As with the Rolling Bay fire, BIFD received assistance from the Poulsbo Fire Department as well as the North Kitsap Fire and Rescue. The Seattle fireboat Leschi was sent to assist from the shore. However, the structure was too far from the shoreline to receive assistance from the fireboat’s apparatus.

It was good policy then, and it remains good policy today. Publishing legal notices in a newspaper of record ensures that decisions related to public debt, ordinances and laws, zoning, taxation and quality of life – all matters of compelling and perpetual public interest – are made with transparency. Legal notices empower the public to get involved in the process. And they contribute to a reservoir of archived material in a form that cannot be altered, changed, hacked, hidden or manipulated after the fact. This would simply not be true of notices published exclusively online.

“Bainbridge Island Review”

Bainbridge bloggers who are supporters of Councilmember Bob Scales have been urging during the past several weeks that his colleagues be, well, more collegial toward him. Compromise, they say, should be be the rule of the day. He is becoming our new local poster child for the “be civil” movement. This strikes me as a bit off kilter. It’s as if Napoleon’s personal guard, trudging from the field at Waterloo, began shouting, “Let the healing begin!” I normally dislike personal criticism, but Mr. Scales’ six years on the council show him to be a believer in hardball against all comers, all the time, and with little regard for others’ feelings or reputations. In council meetings he often has waved his law degree like a stick, making dubious procedural claims that usually involve silencing colleagues who disagree with him. A frequent target, former Councilman Bill Knobloch, so annoyed him that he even went after Knobloch’s city email file, pursuing nonexistent evidence that Knobloch had illegally conspired with the Ratepayers Alliance in efforts to build a firewall around the city’s utility accounts. This is the same councilmember who when in the majority last year pilloried the whistleblowing Police Commission secretary, denouncing her in a public council meeting as unreliable and refusing her a hearing, or even to hear the Ethics Board’s assessment of her complaint. He is the same councilmember who after the first whiff of the police scandal, stepped on the council’s procedural rules in ram-

ming through a revision of the ethics ordinance, making the process so opaque as to stop just short of violating the Public Records Act. And he’s the same councilmember who said from the council dais in January that his colleague, Councilmember Debbi Lester, had neither the intellect nor the temperament to serve in the largely ceremonial role of mayor. Civility, eh? Lester, a longtime community leader, had the good sense not to reply and was duly elected. I think the new council majority made a mistake giving Scales a dose of his own medicine when they shut down his rhetorical questioning of a legal expert at a recent meeting. But cut these people some slack; they’re new to this business and the last election was in good part a referendum on the Scales faction of the council.

of keeping citizens informed, and that it will not shift that burden to the citizens themselves to go hunting for information. To that end, the local, general-interest newspaper remains the vehicle with the widest reach to the broadest cross-section of the community. Newspapers offer not “theoretical” reach, a “potential” audience that may or may not find its way to notices posted on a government website. Newspapers offer actual reach, to readers who are active and interested and engaged in the community around them – and most certainly in local government affairs. We should remember that not all citizens have computers, or smartphones, and not all have access to the web. Indeed, there are cost barriers to entry into, and participation in, today’s world of digital communication. But anyone – everyone – can at any time go down to the public library or the coffee shop, pick up the com-

Affordable, egalitarian and very popular, general interest newspapers provide precisely what government needs most: a direct and demonstrable conduit to its citizens. This issue really comes down to a philosophical question: Should government take its information to the people, or should government make the people come looking for that information, through a maze of agency and departmental websites? We believe – and we are confident Washington citizens agree – that government at all levels has an affirmative obligation to take its information to the people – to make that extra effort, to ensure that public notices are not just “available,” but also widely seen and widely read. House Bill 2801 flouts that obligation, and it should be rejected. The Legislature had the wisdom to dismiss similar legislation last session, and should demonstrate that same wisdom now.

Policing problems offer new opportunities On Sunday and Monday, the Seattle Times ran two stories about the Bainbridge Island Police Department. Many Islanders are disturbed by the revelations. If the stories are true, our department has hired officers with checkered pasts and suspicious records, including one with a penchant for violent assault and one who did not meet the testing requirements for an officer position. The article reminds us that our chief made dramatic misstatements about the Ostling shooting last year and has yet to publicly correct them. Further, the chief neglected to give important information about an officer’s record to the county prosecutor. This action, or lack of action, may result in the dismissal of criminal convictions. In response to the Times pieces, our city manager, Brenda Bauer, posted a letter to the community on the front page of the city website. In this letter, Ms. Bauer states her interest in excellent policing. She and Chief Fehlman have one “overarching objective,” namely, a police department that strives to be “the best small town police force in the country.” The sentiment, here, is great. But the language is

GUEST EDITORIAL By KIM HENDRICKSON confounding. Why is it the department that should strive for high performance? Isn’t this also the responsibility of citizens and city officials? Further, efforts at “striving,” to date, don’t seem very impressive. The police department, according to Ms. Bauer, revamped their complaint form, updated their manual, and standardized internal investigation procedures. These efforts are not inspirational. This raises an important question, though, and one we would be wise to answer: What would we really do, as a city, if we wanted the best police force in the nation? First, we would realize that great policing is not, simply, a police department objective. The City Council has been woefully inactive in the face of police department problems; making proposals, aban-

doning them, and failing to follow up when problems are brought to their attention (I for one would like to know how many police personnel files are “missing”). The council should connect their budgetary power with an insistence on performance measures. They should craft policing goals, and not fund the department until it moves toward these objectives. The fact that our $4M dollar year department does not have a strategic plan is ridiculous. The fact that the council and has not asked for one may be even more so. A related point: the public should know how effective our cops are and what they provide to our community. Information about how many cases are closed, how many calls are initiated, and how many cases are prosecuted are easy to get, and should be provided on a regular basis. Second, we would assess the crime problems in our community. It is impossible to have a vision of where we are going without understanding the local situation, and the “blotter” is not sufficient. What do most calls for service concern? What are our primary crime problems? What do Islanders want

from their police and what do they feel they are getting? The first step in any good policing strategy is an understanding of community needs and interests. The council has the power, and responsibility, to demand this information. Third, we would have the vision to insist on collaborative, community-based policing. The current trust gap between officers and residents isn’t going to be closed by a revamped complaint form on the city website. We need a department culture where positive interactions between the public and the rank and file are promoted and rewarded. Innovations are needed to build police community relationships, be it a new approach to cops in schools or the leveraging of a volunteer corps to help with low-level problems. More robust training in mental illness is a must, as are skills in mediation. The “us” and “them” mentality that separates this community from its police is pernicious. It will not go away until corrective measures are taken. Finally, we would invest in policing, specifically through improved hiring practices. The chief was asked about his hiring goals at a

recent Civil Service Commission meeting. He told the commissioners that he’d like a focus on the grammatical skills of applicants. We need a chief who understands the nexus between high-quality candidates and high-quality policing. If this involves tightening our requirements for applicants (and it should) and an aggressive recruiting program (and it should), we need a chief who will develop a plan and ask council to fund these initiatives. The civil service controversy of last year was unpleasant for all involved. But it also shone some light on serious problems with police hiring practices. Bainbridge Island is a young city. The Seattle Times series may be a turning point in our development. I challenge the community, and particularly our council, to insist on positive changes. We don’t need the “best” small town police force in the country. We just want a great one. Building pride in our department would be a fitting response to recent unpleasant publicity.

BainbridgeGraduateInstitute’s‘FiresideChat’focusesonvision By CONNIE MEARS


Staff Writer

Committed to integrating sustainability and business, Bainbridge Graduate Institute co-founder Gifford Pinchot believes in maximizing resources. As part of the innovative business school’s curriculum, students participate in a week-long intensive at IslandWood, which culminates in a “Fireside Chat” with pioneers of sustainable business. “We’ve brought fantastic people to Bainbridge Island,” Pinchot said Tuesday. Some of these “change agents” are lesser known entrepreneurs and others are executives from companies you may have heard of: Birkenstock, Cliff Bar, Toyota. Rather than let the extra seats at these informal panel discussions go to waste, Pinchot routinely invites the Bainbridge community to partake as well. “It’s an asset,” he said. “They’re already being flown in.” This month the Fireside Chat will feature Bryan Welch, founder of Ogden Publications, which publishes Mother Earth News, Natural Home and Garden and Utne Reader, among others, and David Johnson, CEO of Navos Mental Health Solutions and Chair of the Washington Community Mental Health Council. Pinchot likes to expose BGI stu-

dents to innovative thinkers such as these in a variety of fields, and to that end hosts Change Agents in Residence, or CAIRS, on a regular basis. The CAIRS then assemble at IslandWood for the informal chat facilitated by Pinchot. To make the most of the opportunity, he talks with the CAIRS privately for an hour, sometimes even two before the event, to get a feel for the person, particularly how willing they are to be vulnerable with the students. “It lets me know what risks I can take, where they will rise to the occasion,” he said. “In many cases what motivates them is very personal and I ask them, ‘Are you willing to talk about that?’” For instance, Welch nearly lost his life in 2007 in a motorcycle accident. Though traumatic, the experience provided a powerful metaphor that

expanded into a book “Beautiful and Abundant: Building the World We Want.” Coming from someone else, the message might seem almost airy fairy – have a positive vision – but Welch has the practical track record to back it up. “Bryan is an extraordinary man,” Pinchot said. “He’s a profound, deep person. I like the way he thinks, his commitment. He’s deeply spiritual and he’s a great commercial success.” That combination, of doing good and making money doing it, is the cornerstone of BGI’s mission and Pinchot thinks it helps students hear about the struggles and setbacks that others have overcome. “Nobody’s perfect,” Pinchot said. “Sometimes people didn’t know what they were doing. To hear these stories, to hear it from people we

admire, gives people courage.” And courage is one thing Pinchot sees as critical to success. “The single most important quality (to success) is persistence, a kind of flexible persistence,” he said. “Of facing reality, but holding to purpose. To change the how, but not the purpose.” For Johnson, “changing the how but not the purpose” sums up his work in reframing the approach to working with persons with mental illness. He is CEO of Navos, a consortium of mental health and social service providers that supports clients in mapping out goals for wellness in seven areas, with the ultimate aim of living a life bigger than their disease. He is a frequent speaker on topics that address the intersect of transformational aspirations with pragmatic interventions.

Bainbridge Graduate Institute hosts a sustainability panel “Fireside Chat” from 8-9:30 p.m. Thursday, March 8 at IslandWood, featuring Gifford Pinchot, Bryan Welch and David M. Johnson. Seating is limited and reservations are necessary. To learn more or to reserve seats, visit Pinchot invited the two innovators to help BGI students imagine themselves in that type of role. “It’s important for them to see that there’s no one right way to be,” he said. “You can be introverted, extroverted, tall, short, man, woman, gay, straight and it’s possible to succeed.” BGI graduates are taking such lessons out into the world. Manure entrepreneur Kevin Maas and his brother Daryl are founders of Farm Power, a for-profit business that converts manure into electricity, fertilizer and bacteria-free animal bedding. The methane kept out of the atmosphere equals the annual greenhouse-gas emissions of 3,000 cars. With both persistence and vision, Farm Power is now expanding to Tillamook, Ore., farms.

YeomaltgatheringcelebrateshistoricRainierclimb I was just weeks old when I received my first letter via the postman. Its envelope wore a three-cent stamp. Its message from the Seattle Mountaineers congratulated me on being born to a mountaineering family. My parents saved it until I was old enough to read, climb and pay dues. As a grade school student at John Muir School, we sang our school song, “Climb The Mountains.” A small window above a dresser squeezed into a tiny south-side closet on the top floor of our hillside childhood home gave us a view of “The Mountain” – Mount Rainier – affectionately referred to also as Tahoma. I used the dresser’s drawers to climb to that window. With binoculars, I could scan every glacier, crevasse, cloud formation and strawberry ice cream sunset to set me dreaming about The Mountain. Just blocks away, we climbed not The Mountain, but “Cheapskate Hill” beyond the left field fence to watch baseball played by The Rainiers. On good days within the ballpark, The Mountain loomed over the right field wall. The Mountain beckoned high beyond Rainier Ave. where below our schools, library, grocers and all were located. And on Independence Day nights, we’d stare at The Mountain to try to see Lloyd Anderson’s fireworks launched from its summit. Our basement was full of skis, ice


axes, crampons, ropes, backpacks, cardboard boxes of climbing gear, a bin full of sawdust to shovel into the furnace, and stories. One was about a night spent in a cave on top of The Mountain. I heard about it again 65 years later from Lloyd’s widow, Mary. “Yes, Lloyd used to climb Rainier every July Fourth,” she said. “One year he and your Dad went up and a storm clouded the summit. A lady friend and I went to a city park near our home in West Seattle to watch for Lloyd’s fireworks with binoculars. “We couldn’t see the fireworks and were worried. It was late at night and a policeman asked ‘What are you doing?’ “‘We’re looking for my husband!’ I replied.” “‘What?’ The officer said. ‘Where is he?’ “‘Oh, he’s on top of Mt. Rainier!’ “‘Yeah, right, ladies. You’d best take your binoculars and get on home now!’” A freak storm had engulfed The Mountain and Lloyd, Dad and others escaped the weather in a warm ice cave venting from the dormant volcano. The

summit cleared for the descent the next day. Dad taught mountaineering for Olympic College on Green Mountain in 1938, and at Mount Si where among his students was Mary Jane “Benji” Benham Cunningham, Robinwood, Winslow, who ascended The Mountain at age 17. I was 15 in 1955, when I finally realized my dream, the youngest of a group of Explorer Scouts who joined a Seattle Mountaineers’ ascent led by Lloyd. Some of these old Scouts will be getting together on Monday night, March 5, at Yeomalt Cabin. One of their classmates, Phil Bartow, in 1981, led, with Jim Whittaker, one of the most remarkable climbs of Mount Rainier. With the blessing of Lummi spiritual leader Joe Washington, Bartow ascended the summit with 11 climbers – seven blind, two deaf, one epileptic and one an amputee – to the summit during the International Year of the Disabled. Bartow will share the climb’s awardwinning film, “To Climb A Mountain,” with personal slides and inspirational stories of that venture. Scouts of all ages and genders, disabled and outdoor educators, prospective and old Tahoma climbers, are asked by the park district to bring a donation for the cabin and or a dry log for the fireplace for the 7 p.m. program. Jerry Elfendahl is an island historian

BHSsoftballteam’sgoal: Spartan baseball team fourthstraightstatefinal rebuilds in 2012 season By Kevin Doucette

By Kevin Doucette

For the Review

For the Review

The Spartans have been one the powerhouses in 3A softball over the past few years, winning the state title in 2009, and placing second in ’10 and ’11. Head Coach Liz McCloskey seems confident that will not change this season. “With the success we have had over the past years our goal is the same as every year: to end in the state finals,” she said. “And honestly right now I don’t see a nemesis.” McCloskey said a huge advantage her team has this year is that seven players are returning from last year’s squad. Senior Hailey Willmann will be in the middle of the lineup for the Spartans, and will play second base and occasionally pitch. Senior first baseman Tayler Greenfield, who has been the starting first baseman since she was a freshman, will provide power in the lineup. And senior Cali Moore will also be in the middle of the lineup and start in the outfield. Moore is not a power hitter like Willmann and Greenfield but is a contact hitter. Power pitcher Katie


Sarah Muir, playing varsity this year, engages in a close play with Holy Names during last year’s Metro finals. Raben who is a junior, and has pitched in state championships will be returning as the Spartans ace this year. BHS will also add a few freshmen to the varsity team; Riley Gregoire could see time in the outfield and behind the plate, and outfielder Kate Kinney will join her sister Erin on varsity. Like the baseball team, the softball team has quite a few players who play year round. “They have practice with me six days a week and then practice with their other teams on Sunday,” said McCloskey.

The Spartans play their first game on March 16 against a team that has yet to be determined. They will be the team to beat in the Metro League this year, but McCloskey said they will have some competition. Holy Names has been the toughest team for the Spartans in recent years, and McCloskey said Blanchet and Eastside Catholic have improved. “(We) need to just come in ready to practice, ready to play knowing we have a big target on our back this year,” said McCloskey.

With the surge of late winter weather recently, it certainly does not feel like baseball season, but yes, it is here. “It was snowing while we were taking grounders and fly balls (Tuesday),” said head baseball coach David Smart. Last season the Spartans finished with a record near .500, but finished in fifth place and didn’t make it to the playoffs. Smart said last season his team had a chance to make it to the postseason, but had some missed opportunities. Though the Spartans lost some of their pitchers from last season, senior pitcher Steven Wellbrook looks to be the ace of the staff this year. Junior Spencer Hogger, who was one of the team’s leading hitters last season is as returning as the starting third baseman. Smart also said senior Cody Haskin, and juniors Zander Silverman and catcher Paimon Jaberi will be big impact players this season.


Head coach David Smart returns to lead the Spartan’s baseball team as they open the season March 12 at home. “A lot of these guys play year-round and are focused and dedicated to playing ball,” said Smart. Smart added that because the team lost a lot of players from last year, some of the younger guys will have to step it up this season. But both Smart and Hogger agree this year’s team has great team chemistry. “We are a strong group and it will help us get to the next level,” Hogger said.

Practice just began for the Spartans, but the opening game for the Spartans is just around as they face off against Central Kitsap on March 12 at home. “The biggest thing we need to do this season is play against the game,” said Wellbrock. “If we execute the little things better than our opponent, take it inning by inning, I am confident we will be successful.”

Park District offers arts sampler By CONNIE MEARS Staff Writer


ver look at all those classes listed in the Bainbridge Island Metro– politan Park and Recreation District catalog and say to yourself, “That sounds like fun, I wonder if I could do that?” Well, you can find out at the Park District’s Arts Sampler from 5-7 p.m. tonight during Art Walk at the Bainbridge Commons, 370 Brien Dr. Following the theme “Discover Your Inner Artist” a sampling of the 60 different teachers who present Park District classes will be on hand for a little show and tell about their specialty. Instructors include John Adams who teaches watercolor; Gillian Bull with pastels and mosaics; oils instructor Sylvia Carlton; Marcia Millican, who teaches acrylic and collage;

painting instructor Dorothy Matthews; Susan Callan on book arts; Jane Martin demonstrating metalsmith jewelry; Julie Hews-Everett, who teaches leaded stained glass art; writing/publishing coach and editor Kathryn Keve; and Educated Feet’s Sheila Phillips doing Swing Dance demos. Samples of pottery from the Park District’s new kiln will be on display as well. “Everyone is creative in some way,” said Metro Park District Arts & Cultural Manager Sue Hylen. “They can have an ‘aha’ moment, and all of sudden wake up and get excited.” The informal sampler gives islanders a chance to meet the instructors, maybe even try a new medium or get a feel for the scope of a class before committing to it. It’s like speed dating with art. If you don’t see anything that rings your bell, move on. To learn more, visit www. or call Hylen at 842-2306, extension 116.

Student art contest set for Pavilion Sunday The 12th annual Student Art Contest, sponsored this year by the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District will be accepting submissions of art between 9:30 a.m. and noon Sunday, March 4 at the Pavilion, 403 Madison Ave. The contest is open to all Bainbridge Island students and residents kindergarten through high school. The categories are based on the child’s grade, along with an open “RecycleArt” category where students can create art using locally recyclable materials and items that would have wound up in the garbage (exceptions are glue and tape). Three winners will be selected for each age category and the RecycleArt category, plus up to two “Honorable Mention” pieces per category can be awarded at the judges’ discretion. Each winner will receive an award certificate, and every entrant will receive a merit ribbon for participating. A single Best of Show winner will receive a special collection of prizes. Two new sets of awards will be selected this year, separate from those mentioned above. First, the Metro Park & Recreation District will be awarding three “P&R” certificates, where the winners will receive a $50 voucher toward a Park & Recreation District class of their choice. Second, the Verksted Gallery in Poulsbo will select approximately 25 winners to participate in an exhibit of student art at its gallery in March. Students can enter up to three pieces of artwork in their grade category, plus three pieces in the RecycleArt category. There is a $3 entry fee per piece. The exhibit will be open from noon to 5 p.m. followed by the award ceremony. For questions and official rules, go to, or call contest manager Dinah Satterwhite at 842-0504 or email: – Connie Mears

happening great decisions at the Library tackles the Middle east

Tumult. Tragedies. Victory. Exultation. That was 2011 in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya, where longstanding dictators were swept away by popular revolts. Yet the Arab Spring, or Arab Awakening, as it has been alternatively dubbed in the media, is hardly over. “Middle East Realignment” is this week’s topic for Great Decisions at the Library from 9:30-11 a.m. Saturday, March 3 at Bainbridge Public Library. In Egypt, protesters are back in the street, wondering if they have simply traded one military regime for another. In both Egypt and Tunisia, the uprisings have opened a path to power to long-suppressed Islamists. In Libya, the provisional government formed after Qaddafi’s overthrow has found itself paralyzed by rivalries among the various militias that brought that overthrow about. Meanwhile, the “awakening” continues in Bahrain, Yemen and, most dramatically, Syria, while the international community agonizes over how to respond to the increasingly brutal crackdown on protesters and civilians by Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. What lies ahead for the Middle East’s transition to democracy? What are the prospects for the governments that have held out in this new order? With many longtime U.S. allies ousted, how will the U.S. recalibrate its relations with the new regimes? Drop by the library for the free presentation which includes coffee, a short film and a lively discussion of this timely issue. The discussion will be moderated by John Sinno, a Lebanese-American film producer and past board member of the Arab Center of Washington, whose documentary, “Iraq in Fragments,” was nominated for a 2007 Academy Award. Sinno is president of Arab Film Distribution/ Typecast Films. More information and suggested background readings are available at www. bainbridgeartshumanities. org or by calling 842-7901.

Concert inspired by fairy tales

Staff Writer

This weekend, the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra mixes things up with two matinees with a family friendly spin. Music Director Wesley Schulz presents the second program of the 2011-2012 season in a concert “Once Upon a Time…” weaving a common thread of fairy tales and storytelling. Embark on a journey to a land of mythological creatures, flying carpets, and adventures with the Brothers Grimm and Mother Goose. Not only will the concert appeal to all ages, Bainbridge Performing Arts will have pre-concert activities in the lobby for children ages 5-12 from 2-2:45 p.m. Kids can learn instrument making, hear a performance demonstration and get hands-on at the instrument “petting zoo” with Jas Linford, a wind and brass specialist who plays tuba for BSO. Inside Hodges Hall a “preconcert concert” from 2-2:30 p.m. will feature young cello students of Priscilla Jones, including Julia Edwards, Marit Ellerby, Sophie Naden-Johns, and Andrew Witty. They will be joined by several members of the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra cello section such as Barbara Deppe, Stephanie Schmidt, Sandy Keinholz, and Leanna Glasby, playing their own version of the “Once Upon a Time” musical story.


Members of the cello section of the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra and young guests will perform a pre-concert concert from 2-2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. They will play “Gigue” from J.S. Bach’s Unaccompanied Suite in G Major, and a movement from one of his “Gamba” Sonatas arranged for three cellists by Rick Mooney, Goltermann’s Concerto No. 4, first movement, and a medley of folk tunes arranged by Erik Nordstrom and Priscilla Jones. From 2:30-2:45 p.m., Schulz will present a preconcert discussion of the concert program. (See sidebar for more details). The concert will highlight the young and talented violinist Corin Lee who will join the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra in a performance of the mon-

umental Concerto in G minor by Max Bruch. As a chamber musician, Lee has been selected to perform at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, Paul and Morse Halls at Juilliard, Columbia University’s Faculty House and St. Paul’s Chapel, and St. Luke’s Orchestra’s Mary Flagler Cary Hall. TV appearances include quartet performances on Fox and NBC. As an orchestra musician, he has served as the Principal of the Juilliard Orchestra and Great Mountains Music Festival and School, and toured on an Ambassador Concert series throughout China.

‘Deep Wake’ plays EMP By CONNIE MEARS Staff Writer

The Deep Wake, the Bainbridge-based indie band, performs along with three other bands in the finals of the Experience Music Project’s Sound Off! competition. The band is comprised of 2009 Bainbridge High School grad and singer-songwriter Adam Foley; Laura Jean Anderson from Olympia; Nora Lang, a junior at Bainbridge High and Eagle Harbor High schools on fiddle; BHS 2009 grad Eric Schuler on percussion and Eagle Harbor graduate Rivers Moore on bass guitar.

The band competes against three other bands, “Nude,” “Feet,” and wild card winner “Special Explosion.” After being one of 12 bands selected from a pool of 140 bands, The Deep Wake took first place in the Feb. 11 firstround competition. Among the top prizes are a spot on stage at Bumbershoot, recording studio time, and professional coaching by industry consultants. In its 11th year, Sound Off!, a battle-of-the-bands for musicians aged 21 and under, has launched some notable talent in new and indie music such as Fleet Foxes lead singer, and The Globes.

Pettis returns for jazz concert

SoundOff! Supporters of Bainbridge-based band The Deep Wake will want to cheer them on at 8 p.m. March 3 in the Sky Church at Experience Music Project in Seattle Center. Tickets are $8 for students and EMP Museum members and $12 for the general public. For more information and tickets, visit www. soundoff.

On March 3 and 4 the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra will present, “Once Upon a Time…,” a musical program in which all of the music is inspired by a fairy tale or story. Two of the works, Maurice Ravel’s “Ma mère l'oye,” or “Mother Goose Suite” and Carl Nielsen’s “Aladdin” are based on familiar fairy tales. Ravel’s work, originally for piano, is a suite of five movements each inspired by a different Mother Goose story, including “Sleeping Beauty,” “Little Tom Thumb,” and “Beauty and the Beast.” I think the final movement of this suite, depicting Sleeping Beauty being awakened by her Prince, contains one of the most simple yet moving melodies in the French repertory. The other work, Nielsen’s music for a theatrical production of “Aladdin,” is full of vivid orchestral color, energetic melodies and diverse musical styles. The opening work is Mozart’s overture to his last opera, “Die Zauberflöte.” The story is a blend of myth, magic and colorful characters all in the pursuit of happiness and love. Finally, I’m very excited that a talented young violinist, Corin Lee, will be joining us in a performance of Max Bruch’s “Violin Concerto in G minor.” Although this work has no connection to fairy tales, the lyricism, passion and virtuosity of the piece is a perfect blend with the rest of the program. Whether you are a youth or simply youthful, I am sure the magic of these great works will carry you away in a wonderful evening of live classical music.


The Deep Wake won first place Feb. 11 in Experience Music Project’s Sound Off! competition.

First Sundays at the Commons presents the great jazz vocalist Gail Pettis in concert with Tony Foster on piano, Jeff Johnson on bass and Mark Ivester on drums at 4 p.m. Sunday, March 4 at the Bainbridge Commons. Named "2010 Northwest Vocalist of the Year" by Earshot Jazz Society (also in 2007), Pettis' rich warm vocals and understated phrasing have been described as "deliciously soulful" by Cadence Magazine. Tickets are $20 and are on sale at

Madison diner: a hangout for islanders, ghosts By RICHARD D. OXLEY Staff Writer

An original 40s-era art deco style structure with shining stainless steel exterior, the Madison Diner is hard to miss. One of the “regulars” inside the diner, may be a little more difficult to spot. “All of the staff have experienced someone calling their name, only to turn around to find no one,” said owner Cyndi Moody. “We like to think it's Harry, the original owner of the diner playing tricks with us. Whenever something weird happens, we like to blame it on Harry.” Aside from the possible paranormal guest, the Madison Diner has seen a few names and owners over the past few years. Though after Brian and Cyndi Moody took it over last May, business has been good. “The restaurant had suf-

fered something of an identity crisis in recent years,” Brian said. “We put ourselves in the customer’s seat. We work hard to bring the community a quality product backed with sincere and neighborly service.” Along with their head cook Martha Yonke, Cyndi has crafted a menu that mimics what she has been serving in her own kitchen. “Most of the recipes are the same ones I’ve been using at home for years,” Cyndi said. “We like to ‘play with our food’ at the diner.” However they put it together, it's been working. The diner has attracted its fair share of regulars, giving it a down-to-earth feel that strays from some of the boutique-style restaurants common in the area. The neighborly ambiance has worked so well the diner recently expand-

ed to serving late-night hours Thursdays through Saturdays. According to Cyndi, they are looking to further expand hours in the near future. The diner was originally built in 1948 by the Fodero Dining Company — it still bears the style and aesthetics common to 50s diners. After moving around the East Coast, the building was shipped to the island in 1996. Over the decades it has collected stories and style — and maybe even a ghost.

FYI POLICE BLOTTER Bainbridge Police reported the following incidents: Feb. 27 9:30 p.m. A woman living on Winslow Way East called police when her ex-boyfreind showed up at her apartment and refused to leave, causing her to fear for her safety. They had not been dating for two months. Recently the man had sent numerous emails, had been calling frequently and contacting her at work. The woman noted that the man did sometimes carry a firearm. When police arrived they searched the man but no gun was found. He said he was visiting his friend and that he had walked there from the ferry. It was discovered later that he actually drove and his car was parked nearby. The woman came outside and said that the man was trying to leave a bag of candy and a letter for her. The letter was copied for evidence. The man was instructed to leave and not return or he would be arrested. The woman was advised on actions she can take in response to the harassment she was experiencing. 11 p.m. A resident witnessed a young man removing items from a truck on Cherry Ave., and quickly reported that a car prowl was in progress. The young man was taking items from the truck and placing them in a grassy area under some trees across the street. He fled upon noticing he had been seen. Police responded and intercepted the young man. Though they repeatedly ordered him to stop, he dodged left and right. The officer tried to grab hold of his arm but the young man twisted out of his jacket and fled. Police retained the jacket. Police searched the area but were unable to locate the young man. The suspect’s jacket contained three pairs of sunglasses, one of which was styled for women. Police contacted the owners of the truck who then collected the items removed from the car and placed across the street. Among the items were two Garmin boat GPS devices, two GPS antennas, two Airmar Transducers, one fishing pole holder, boots, an emergency car kit, jacket and a blanket. The total value of all the items was approximately $2,965. The owner of the truck said that he forgot to lock it. The suspect was a teenage male, with short blonde hair between the ages of 15 and 18. Police continued to search the area, but were unable to locate him. Feb. 28 11:14 a.m. A man came into the police station to report a theft from his vehicle the previous evening. After finishing his shift at a local establishment, the man drove to visit his friend on Dingley Road. While he was only there a short time, upon returning to his vehicle he discovered that $22 in tip money and his headphones were missing. He also noted that he did encounter a police officer in the area who was in pursuit of a car prowl suspect.

Members line up to practice kicks and punches while they workout at the Bainbridge Island Boxing Club.


While the laid back persona of the Gym at the Pavilion may indicate that residents simply want to work out, even without outside motivation, it may be just another niche in the market. Vice President of Industry Growth for the IHRSA Meredith Poppler said that gyms have become more diversified. She believes that the more options available, the more likely people will join a facility that appeals to their tastes. “There are two major explanations for why health club numbers and membership numbers have increased over the past year,” Poppler

said. “First, the explosion of niche specific clubs and population specific programming, meaning that no matter how old you are or what type of athlete you are, there is a club out there designed to appeal to you, not just big boxes trying to appeal to the masses. “Also, the largest growth we’ve seen in the industry has been from the 24-hour key club model.” While there are no 24-hour clubs on the island, residents certainly have many choices. Aside from gyms and personal trainers, there are also a number of yoga facilities such as the Island Yoga Space, Tai Chi at Island Martial Arts, or CrossFit 98110 — another new addition to the island.

Douglas Boyd Hurd died Feb. 21 at his home in Kingston, Wash. He was born on April 15, 1947 in Bremerton, Wash. He was 64 years of age. Douglas was a Vietnam War Veteran and received the National Defense Service Medal. He excelled at anything he took on and no project was too big or difficult for him to figure out. He was a true “motor Douglas Hurd head” and loved anything with an engine. He enjoyed racing, riding motorcycles and snowmobiles. He also loved to travel and explore. He had a passion for life and loved deeply and passionately. He is survived by his wife Diana Hurd of Kingston, Wash.; children Donald Hurd and Jackie Hammes of Auburn, Wash.; and his grandchildren: Aubrey Hammes, Emery Hammes and MacKenzie Hurd all of Auburn. He leaves behind many loving friends. Douglas was preceded in death by his parents: Paul Hurd and Wilma Mallow and his granddaughter Macey Haywood. Family and friends are invited to attend the Memorial Mass on March 31 at 11 a.m. at St. Mary Star of The Sea in Port Townsend, WA. Please sign the online Guest Book for the family at: www.

Information including: date of birth and death; a brief biographical sketch, including marriage; career highlights; survivors; date of memorial services and place of interment; and the name of the mortuary handling arrangements. Because obituaries are news stories, all notices are subject to editing for style, content and clarity. Photographs are encouraged, but because of space limitations, there is no guarantee that they will be published. Obituaries typically appear in the first issue after the date of death. If space does not permit, a shorter notice of death will appear, including the date of services and a statement that the full notice will appear in the subsequent issue. Because obituaries are news, the Review does not “hold” notices for a later issue at the request of the family. For purposes of clear identification, the subject’s date of birth/age must be included.

Of Bremerton Oct. 20, 1967 - Feb. 24th, 2012 On Friday, February 24th, 2012, our beloved son (brother, and father), Ed Johanson, was killed in a tragic and unnecessary auto accident on the way from work. He was just 5 minutes from home when another car crossed the centerline and collided head-on with Ed’s car. Ed was born October 20th, 1967, at Harrison Memorial Hospital, Bremerton, WA. He grew up in East Bremerton and attended Tracyton Elementary through second grade. In 1976, Ed’s family moved to Seabeck, and he attended Seabeck Elementary, C.K. Junior High, and C.K. High School. Ed graduated from High School in 1986, from Olympic College in 1988 (A.A. in Studio Art), and from Western Washington University in 1991 (B.A. in Studio Art). He also attended Law Enforcement Academy at Skagit Valley Community College in 1993 (with yearly refresher courses for Washington State Parks). Ed was married to Deanna Evans from 1990 to 2011. They had 2 sons together, Brandon (20), and Nick (18). Ed purchased his family home and lived there with his boys at the time of his death. Ed worked in grounds maintenance at the Seabeck Conference Grounds (1986), as a Park Aide at Scenic Beach State Park (1988), as Seasonal Ranger at Crater Lake National Park (1992) as security guard at Portal Mental Health facility (1993), and as a Ranger II at Kitsap Memorial State Park from 1993 to 2012. Ed was transferred to Kanaskat-Palmer State Park on February 17th, 2012, as a result of Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission restructuring. He absolutely loved the Parks system and stood beside its mission. Ed found his true calling in embracing a love for the out-of-doors along with his passion for people, history, and culture. Ed was always proud of the many projects he was involved with, and especially enjoyed seeing the park evolve to include Wedding planning and expanded services. Ed coached baseball for the Silverdale Pony League (Head Coach 1998-2004) and he coached for the Central Kitsap Soccer Club (Assistant Coach 1998-2002, and Head Coach 2002-2011). Ed has been a positive influence in the lives of many local kids, and was especially proud that he was given the opportunity to coach them. Ed was an avid collector, and he brought his artistic talents into all aspects of his life. He often drew cartoons of family, neighbors, fellow Park Rangers, and his Soccer team. Ed’s art included illustrations and modeling plastic figurines, and he recently rekindled his business aspirations with a side business (“Creations INK”). Ed was an all-around great guy with a gift of gab, sincere concern for people, and a love of life. He was proud of his sons, and was planning to bring his fiancée, Leigh Kessell, a native of New Zealand, over to the U.S. where they had marriage plans this coming summer… plans interrupted by his sudden and tragic death. In addition to Brandon, Nicholas, and Leigh, he is survived by his parents, Keith and Edna Johanson of Seabeck, Washington, a brother, Raymond Johanson (Janice) and 6 nieces and 4 nephews of North Bend, Washington, an uncle Richard Anderson (Anita) of Port Orchard, Washington, an aunt Barbara Wilson (Mike) of Bainbridge Island, Washington, an uncle Dennis Johanson (Shirley) of Bainbridge Island, Washington, and an uncle Ron Johanson of Republic, Washington. He also leaves several cousins, and many friends and acquaintances. Ed Johanson will be greatly missed. A celebration of Ed’s life will be held at 11:00 AM Friday, March 2, 2012 at the Gateway Fellowship Church, 18901 8th Ave. NE, Poulsbo, WA 98370. Arrangements by Mountain View Funeral Home.

his week, Kitsap residents woke to chilly temperatures in the 30s. And that must have felt downright balmy for Steven Kazlowski. “In Alaska, I’ve waited for polar bears to come out of dens for months,” Kazlowski said. “The outside temperatures were 40 to 50

degrees below zero with 60 mileper-hour winds.”

Kazlowski, who lives in North Kitsap, has a profession many amateurs would salivate over — he is a wildlife photographer whose work has been featured in Audubon, Na-

tional Geographic and Newsweek. Kazlowski has gone all over the Alaskan Arctic photographing animals that call the frigid white world home. Along the way he has developed a special fondness for polar bears, which he describes as curious and extremely social. So curious that once, a juvenile bear approached his sleeping tent.

MARCH 31, 2012

Hearing Kazlowski’s snores, the intrigued bear placed a paw on Kazlowski’s head and shoulder through the tent material. Startled, Kazlowski ran out screaming and yelling. The bear ran back into the ocean and jumped into the water. “I easily could have been killed,” Kazlowski said. “But he was only curious.” For the less adventurous, the idea of sleeping outdoors while polar bears roam around may seem extreme, but it’s all part of a day’s work for Kazlowski.

And so is waiting. And waiting. When you flip through a nature magazine and see the amazing photos, it’s easy to imagine the photographer having an abundance of animals to photograph — sort of a “Noah’s Ark” moment with animals posing and flitting about. But that is often not the case. What you don’t see in those beautiful photos is the patience of the photographer, waiting in subzero temperatures for the animals to appear. Kazlowski estimates that he’s spent thousands of hours waiting for polar bears. To pass the time, Kazlowski sits and watches

depends on how much you want to look into it.” But when the bears — or other animals for that matter — decide to make their appearance, Kazlowski is at the ready. When the moment strikes, he needs to capture what unfolds. Through his photography, his goal is to make people feel as if there were there — to see the texture of the bear’s fur, or a mother nuzzling her cub. Working in an extreme climate can be difficult. To keep the chill away, Kazlowski stays warm with heavy parkas and propane heaters. And he admits he still gets downright cold and the weather is chal-

lenging. He had to endure a learning curve with the drastic temperatures and his sensitive photography equipment. He’s cracked expensive lenses because they were so cold and then warmed too quickly. Going from the extreme cold to a warm tent can cause moisture to form on the inside of the equipment. Once the moisture forms, it can take days to dry out. So he’s learned to wrap up his equipment in towels and gradually bring it up to temperature. Besides working in Alaska, Kazlowski enjoys photographing things See ARCTIC, Page 3

Continued from page 2 closer to home. “The Olympic Peninsula is an amazing and diverse place,” he said. He hopes to someday do a project on the history and wildlife of the Olympic Peninsula. Kazlowski was interested in photography at a young age.

But his “practical parents” told him he needed to focus his studies on a career, not a hobby, so Kazlowski pushed photography out of his mind. He obtained a degree in marine biology and worked for a bit in the Florida Keys. But in his mid-20s, he decided to revisit photography. And has made it his life’s work ever since.

“I wanted to go do something that can keep me in nature, because that’s where I like to be,” he said. So no desk job? “Oh, no. That wouldn’t work,” Kazlowski said. “I’d get fired.” Besides breathtaking photography, Kazlowski offers tours in the eastern Arctic to see the polar bears. Tours are in Septem-

ber and October when the temperatures aren’t so extreme and the bears feed on bowhead whale bones left behind by Native hunters. And don’t worry if you’re a snorer. The tourists spend the night in hotels and are free to snore away without the fear of a curious bear approaching. For more information on the tours and Kazlowski’s

photography, visit www. Kazlowski will give a presentation entitled “Polar Bears of the Alaskan Arctic” April 1, 3 p.m. at IslandWood, 4450 Blakely Ave., Bainbridge Island. The event is open to the public. Copies of Kazlowski’s book, “The Last Polar Bear,” will be available for purchase.

Taking care of certain foot conditions early will prevent them from developing into problems that are more serious, uncomfortable, and difficult to treat. Ingrown toenails may seem minor to many people, but they can pierce the skin and allow bacteria to enter. Pay attention to heel pain too, as it can indicate a fracture, a tight Achilles tendon, or a pinched nerve. It can also be the result of tissue inflammation. Pain in the back of the foot behind the ankle could be Achilles tendonitis. If not treated early, it could get worse and the tendon can rupture. Have ankle sprains treated early, or they can contribute to instability in the ankle.

That’s often when creative thoughts take root. If it’s fame and glory that you’re worried about—and I hope I’m not a dream squelcher—you may be on the road to disappointment. According to statistics from the NCAA, the odds of a high school player becoming an NCAA college player are incredibly slim—and the odds of becoming a pro are even slimmer. For men’s basketball, only 3 percent of high school players will play in college and there is only 0.03 percent chance of a high school player being drafted to the NBA. Remember,



playing on one team. Plus, your family will have time for non-sports related fun. But if your child is up for the double-duty and can juggle two sports as well as schoolwork and other responsibilities, and it won’t place a big burden on other family members, than go for it. Make sure and clear it with your son, though. You may find that he doesn’t have much interest in one of the sports. And don’t underestimate the value of downtime. Between school and social pressures, sports teams and the constant media our children are exposed to, it seems like our children have less and less time to just be. It’s OK for them to be idle once in awhile.

For those who think that this practice doesn’t apply to “true” players, consider this: Davie Freese, the MVP of the 2001 World Series, declined a college scholarship to play baseball because he needed a break. Only after taking a full year off, did he realize he loved the sport. My advice is to do what is best for your family. If participating in two sports causes your family stress by driving all over Timbuktu and spending every weekend sitting on bleachers, don’t do it. Your child will be fine. He is still getting exercise and a valuable team experience by

Music Lessons People helping pets...pets helping people.

Sundin is a 9yr old shorthaired black & white female

who came to us because “she didn’t fit into the household any longer”. She had some issues with the other cat, dog, and young child in the house. Since she has come to us she has fit in fine with everyone. Sundin likes to be petted and brushed-until she’s had enough. She loves to sit in the window perch and watch people. She likes to sit on the fenced in porches and watch the birds & squirrels. She has been an indoor/outdoor cat but she seems to prefer indoors. Sundin will be hanging out at the Poulsbo Petco this week. We are hoping her third time there will be a charm and she will finally find a home to call her own.

aroundkitsap BainBridge island review Fire destroys waterfront home: An old chimney was determined to be the source of the house fire that destroyed a Bainbridge Island home Feb. 26. The Bainbridge Island Fire Department responded to a report of a house fire in prog-

ress at a home on Country Club Road at Restoration Point at 6:14 a.m. When firefighters arrived at the twostory house, it was already heavily engulfed in flames and smoke. By the time the fire was under control at 8:30 a.m., the house was completely destroyed. Estimated value of the structure and the items lost

within the blaze are $1.78 million. According to a fire department press release, the fireplace failed to prevent heat from reaching the original portion of the house. This caused wood that was in direct contact with the back of the fireplace to ignite. —

Bremerton Patriot Police hear Union Hill concerns: The difference

Hundreds of people hold candles Feb. 27 at a vigil honoring Washington State Trooper Tony Radulescu outside the Christian Life Center in Port Orchard. The trooper was shot and killed Feb. 23 during a traffic stop. Brett Cihon / Port Orchard Independent between a person of interest and suspect lies within the depth of probable cause. As of now, the Bremerton police don’t have it. Police have interviewed a “person of interest” in the city’s dual-murder investigation, but they have no probable cause to make an arrest or gain a search warrant. As residents began to take down posters urging a call to police if the face depicted jogged the viewers’ memory related to the murders, authorities say the sketch remains relevant. About 150 neighbors crowded into the basement of Memorial Lutheran Church on Veneta Avenue Feb. 23 to hear from police and share personal concerns over apple juice and homemade sweets. Sponsored by 5th District Bremerton Councilmember Greg Wheeler and 6th District Councilmember Faye Flemester, the police took questions following a short safety presentation. The evening turned into neighborhood therapy session as residents asked questions revealing a desire to be told if they should be afraid or not. —

Central KitsaP rePorter Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club ceases fire: After its long legal battle with Kitsap County ended with a judge’s order earlier this month to close the shooting range, Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club suspended shooting at the Seabeck range and last week filed a notice of appeal. Pierce County Superior Court Judge Susan J. Serko ruled Feb. 9 that the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club is a public nuisance and ordered the club to not use its property as a shooting range until

a Kitsap County conditional use permit is issued. The club filed a notice of appeal Feb. 17 in the state Court of Appeals in Tacoma. “We’re appealing the decision, that’s where we stand right now,” Marcus Carter, the club’s executive officer, said. He added that the club is doing what it can with the goal of getting the shooting range to reopen soon. By unanimous vote, members at a Feb. 9 club meeting suspended shooting, Carter said. In the interim, he said that gun club members are taking the time to do some maintenance work. — CentralKitsapReporter. com

north KitsaP herald Body found in Poulsbo identified as missing Port Orchard man: A body found in the woods near NW Commerce Street in Poulsbo on Feb. 26 was identified as a missing Port Orchard man. Philip A. Burlew, 39, was reported missing by his father Jan. 6. Burlew’s father told police he believed his son was suicidal and may have had a gun. Volunteers from the Washington Explorer Search and Rescue team, coordinated by the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Department, found Burlew’s body around 9:40 a.m on Feb. 26. The county coroner ruled his death a suicide. Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Scott Wilson said it is standard procedure to conduct a second search, the Search and Rescue team waited until the weather was warmer to organize a search and recovery. Wilson said the family had been contacted and “advised of steps taken all along.” Burlew had reportedly been involved in a solo car

crash near Viking Avenue Jan. 3. He called 911 around 1:15 a.m., reporting he was uninjured, but his car was on fire after hitting a guy wire. Deputies found a car, belonging to Burlew’s father, off Viking Avenue near the private entrance to Snider Park. Deputies attempted to find the man, including attempting to “ping” his cellphone, without success. Burlew was found 100 yards from where he had called 911 on Jan. 3, in a small patch of woods between NW Commerce Street and North Kitsap Auto Rebuild. Deputies recovered a small-caliber gun and a cell phone under the body. Coroner Greg Sandstrom said Burlew had been deceased since the time he had been reported missing. —

The 39-foot wood boat had sunk in a private boathouse and was being raised on Feb. 27 when gas fumes that had built up in the boathouse were ignited by a spark, causing an explosion. The blast knocked out boathouse windows and caused minor damage to neighboring boathouses. City Councilman Jerry Childs, who was working on his own boat three docks over at the Yacht Club, said he heard a loud explosion shortly after 2 p.m. “The whole marina shuddered,” he said. “Everything shook.” —

Pinot Gris is a perfect Northwest wine By Andy Perdue And eric degermAn

Wine Press Northwest


t makes perfect sense that Pinot Gris has exploded in popularity in the Pacific Northwest in the past decade. The grape has blown past Chardonnay as the most important white wine in Oregon, and it has outdistanced Sauvignon Blanc as the No. 3 white wine in Washington, behind Riesling and Chardonnay. Pinot Gris originates in the Burgundy region of France, where it is thought to be a mutation of the genetically unstable Pinot Noir grape. It is important in the Alsatian region of France, as well as in Italy, where it is called Pinot Grigio. The grape is no recent arrival to the Northwest. In fact, David Lett of Eyrie Vineyards in Oregon’s Dundee Hills planted the first Pinot Gris in the United States in the mid-1960s. By 2000, it had surpassed Chardonnay as Oregon’s top white grape. In Washington, Pinot Gris has been slower to catch on. In 1999, just 150 acres were planted. By 2003, 1,900 tons were harvested, and in 2010, Washington winemakers crushed 6,100 tons. Just as exciting are Pinot Gris coming out of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, where the region’s naturally high acidity helps to produce a wine that combines bright fruit and racy acidity. So why is Pinot Gris such a perfect fit for the Pacific Northwest? For us, it’s all about food. The Northwest is loaded with fresh ingredients from farms and the sea, and Pinot Gris pairs beautifully with a wide variety of dishes. On the seafood side, it’s hard to go wrong with scallops, mussels, prawns, clam chowder, halibut or salmon. For landlubbers, consider ham, chicken, quiche, stir fry, pasta in a light sauce or roasted vegetables. Here are a few Pinot Gris to try. Check for them with your favorite wine merchant or contact the wineries directly. n Elk Cove Vineyards 2010 Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, $19: This

is one of the top Pinot Gris in Oregon. It opens with aromas of spearmint, lemon oil, starfruit, dried apricot and lime. It’s a big, fruity, delicious and expressive palate, with flavors of tangelos, Mandarin oranges, pears, peaches and grapefruits. There is a ton of acidity to balance the fruit and the hint of sweetness. n Latah Creek Wine Cellars 2010 Pinot Gris, Washington, $11: Aromas of pear, lime, lychee, almond and slate give way to flavors of Asian pear, Granny Smith apple, white peach, tangerine pith and peach pit. n Kudos 2010 Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, $12: This wine is all about fruit, starting with aromas of dusty pear, starfruit, pineapple, wintergreen, flannel and minerality. Bold fruit and delicious acidity stream through the mouth, starting with Jonagold apple, Bartlett pear and lemon chiffon pie flavors. It carries just a hint of sweetness. n Airfield Estates 2010 Pinot Gris, Yakima Valley, $15: This wine opens with aromas of Pink Lady apples, lemons, pineapples and spearmint. It’s a hedonistic wine on the palate, showing off flavors of fresh Bartlett pears, mint, lemons, pineapples, white peaches and jasmine blossoms. The acidity is clean and refreshing. n Erath Winery 2009 Pinot Gris, Oregon, $14: This opens with aromas of lemons, peaches and a hint of toast, followed by flavors of yellow grapefruits, ripe peaches, oranges and slate. It’s a bright wine, perfect for shellfish or halibut. n Waterbrook Winery 2010 Pinot Gris, Columbia Valley, $12: This opens with approachable aromas of apples, peaches, oranges and sweet spices. On the palate, it offers luscious flavors of tangerines, orange zest, pears, peaches and guava. Pair with seared scallops. n Willow Crest Winery 2010 Estate Pinot Gris, Yakima Valley, $10: This delicious and affordable white wine offers aromas of spices, peaches, apples,

minerals and grapefruits, along with a complex note of nuttiness and flowers. On the palate, it reveals flavors that reminded us of applesauce and peaches. — Andy Perdue and Eric Degerman are the editors of Wine Press Northwest ( freshpress).
