Crowd gathers to mourn Huge crowd mourns Trooper Radulescu at candlelight vigil By BRETT CIHON Port Orchard Independent Reporter

Mourners gathered outside the Christian Life Center in Port Orchard for a candlelight vigil Monday evening honoring slain Washington State Patrol Trooper Tony Radulescu.

Family members of Radulescu, holding candles and carrying tissues, spoke at the gathering. “This so unspeakably hard for the family,” said Erick Radulescu, the trooper’s son. “He was the glue that held the Radulescus together.” Washington State Patrol Chief John Batiste and Kitsap County Sheriff Steve Boyer, who was once Radulescu’s WSP supervisor, also spoke at the gathering, which drew close to 1,000 people. Both shared memories of Radulescu, and agreed he was woven from a special cloth.

“He was the best of the best,” Boyer said. He recalled the Romanian-born Radulescu’s irrepressible good nature. “Tony was always smiling,” Boyer said. “Tony couldn’t help himself; he couldn’t not smile.” Radulescu was shot in the head by Joshua Blake during a traffic stop on State Route 16 near Gorst in the early morning hours of Feb. 23. A memorial service was held at the Showare Center in Kent at 1 p.m. Thursday.

The difference 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 citizens began to take down posters urging a call to police if the face printed there were to jog 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 last Thursday 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. “Is the person of interest under surveillance?” Collectively, residents wanted to know where the person of interest lives and what specifically connected the Burke and Brannon murders with the third assault. Should residents call 9-1-1 and should the police sketch continue to

be circulated? Other questions were as basic as one woman wanting to know if she could walk her dogs or another’s desire to know why the Union Hill neighborhood was “targeted.” “Did they know they were being followed?” asked one woman. “If something doesn’t feel right it probably isn’t,” Bremerton Police Lt. Pete Fisher said before noting that the man who survived the attack was distracted at the time. “We do believe they were being followed,” he said. Citing a need to protect the investigation, police did not answer most of the questions asked. Sarah Burke, a 19-yearold student, was murdered on the street last May and Melody Brannon was murdered on Feb. 3 somewhere on the block of 1300 High Avenue. With nine months between, the murders are now suspected to be connected by an assault on Burwell Street in which a man survived with the help of an unknown passer by. Whether police believe the young man in the image that they’ve been circulating murdered Burke and Brannon, they won’t say. What Fisher did say is that the young man questioned by authorities remains at the “person of interest” level of the investigation. That person could be a witness rather than a suspect, Fisher said. Bremerton Police believe that they have interviewed the person that they believe to be the person of interest in the police artists sketch, See CONCERNS, A7

Stennis expected home today Sailors from the Nimitzclass aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis are scheduled to return to Naval Base Kitsap in Bremerton today after a seven-month deployment to the Middle East. “I’m really excited to go home and finally see my newborn baby,” said Enginemen 3rd Class Siarhei Kulinkovich, originally from Novopolotsk, Belarus. “I can’t wait to be with her all the time and hold her in my arms.” Thousands of friends and family members are expected to be waiting on the pier as Stennis pulls into port following duty that included threats from Iran, sending the Navy’s

last plane into Iraq and setting free Iranian fishermen held by Somali pirates. The Stennis also sent more than 1,000 sorties in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. In January, the Stennis Strike Group thwarted an attempted pirate attack on a Bahamian-flagged cargo vessel in the northern Arabian Sea. “We were able to continue combat operations in Afghanistan and complete a refueling-at-sea event while simultaneously preventing a pirate attack then pursued and captured the culprits, freeing a crew of Iranian mariners they were holding captive,” said Rear Adm.

Craig Faller, commander of group. “This exemplifies precisely the multi-mission capability of the carrier strike group to operate forward, save lives and make a positive impact.” During its return home, the group made a stop in Hawaii before heading to San Diego to drop off the accompanying air wing personnel and equipment. “Our crew has served as model ambassadors of our country while conducting both combat and strategic operations in a highstress environment for seven months,” said Capt. Ronald Reis, Stennis’ commanding officer.  “And they have exceeded expectations every step of the way.”

Local park ranger mourned Reagan sailor dies State Parks staff were notified late Feb. 25 of a fatal auto accident in which Washington State Parks ranger, Ed Johanson was killed. Johanson, 44, was off duty and driving home in his private vehicle at the time of the head-on collision in the Central Kitsap area, near where Johanson lived. The Kitsap County Sheriff ’s office investi-

gated the accident and said indicated in a news release that the driver of the other car was arrested for vehicular homicide. Drugs or alcohol were suspected to be involved. Johanson worked as a ranger for 20 years, serving at Kitsap Memorial State Park near Seabeck until his recent assignment to Kanaskat Palmer State Park in the Green River Gorge

area. According to state coworkers, Johanson was known for his enthusiasm and passion. He was someone who considered being a ranger as an identity rather than just a job, according to close co-workers. “This is very sad. Ed will be sorely missed,” said Don Hoch, agency director. Gov. Chris Gregoire also expressed her con-

dolences. “Like so many of our employees, Ranger Ed Johanson was the type who went above and beyond to make both our parks and our state a better place,” said Gov. Gregoire. “A tireless advocate and innovator for our parks and a beloved community volunteer, his loss will be felt.”

County commissioners forgo morning meetings Regular business meeting to be pushed ahead to 5:30 p.m. BY KRISTIN OKINAKA

Kits ap C ounty Commissioners have acted in compromise regarding the time they will do the public’s business in public. The Board of County Commissioners originally sought to move the regular business meetings from 7 p.m. to 10 a.m. Mondays. After many people argued against having a morning meeting time at a public hearing in mid-February and additional written testimony that commissioners said they received opposing it, they decided against moving the meeting to Monday mornings. The meeting time will be pushed forward, but not into business hours. Beginning March 26, the meetings will begin at

5:30 p.m. The next meeting scheduled for March 12 will remain at 7 p.m. Myrtle Cooper, who attended Monday’s meeting with her husband, said although they are retired and can make meetings at any time of the day, she was glad the commissioners didn’t change it to the mornings. A morning time would make it difficult for those who are working to attend, she said. “I think 5:30 will be better. It’s a good compromise,” Cooper said. Commissioners unanimously approved Monday of moving the regular business meetings, which are held every second and fourth Monday of the month in the commissioners’ chambers at the Port Orchard administrative building, to begin at

5:30 p.m. rather than 7 p.m. Commissioner Charlotte Garrido was absent but Commissioner Rob Gelder said she was in support of the new meeting start time as well. “We’re still committed to being as available as possible,” Gelder said. Although regular business cannot be conducted outside the county seat, Gelder said that there is still the option to have special meetings at other venues. It would be more convenient for some residents to attend so they do not have to drive a long way to Port Orchard, especially if the topic of discussion pertained to a specific part of the county, he said. The regular business meetings were moved from mornings to a 7 p.m. start in 2007 in hopes of encouraging more community participation. Other than public hear-

Commissioners hope the earlier evening time will make it convenient for more people to attend meetings.

“Moving to 5:30 makes a lot of sense,” said Commissioner Josh Brown. “It’s worth a try.”

Connecting to the Central Kitsap sewer system to increase by $1,000 By KRISTIN OKINAKA

On three days notice, Kitsap County Commissioners voted to raise fees for new connections into the Central Kitsap’s sewer system. A public hearing was held Monday for a resolution that would go in effect to increase newcomer’s assessments for Central Kitsap’s sewer system. By the today, the price will have increased more than 30 percent. “This is like taxation without representation,” Shaun Lane, a Central Kitsap homeowner said, adding that he thought an increase like this should go to a vote by the citizens. Lane was the only person to testify before the commissioners during the hearing Monday evening. The board approved of the resolution with a 2-1 vote. Commissioner Charlotte Garrido was absent. The newcomer’s assessment fee is the connecting fee when a property connects to the sewer system. A cost of service and rate analysis completed last year as part of the Central Kitsap Sewer Facility Plan update, determined that the newcomer’s assessment fee for Central Kitsap is insufficient for necessary expan-

sion of the sewer facility. Therefore, the newcomer’s assessment in Central Kitsap will increase from the current rate of $3,102 to $4,181, said Stella Vakarcs, senior program manager with the Wastewater Division of Kitsap County Public Works. The 34.8 percent increase was approved to go into effect March 1. Originally, Vakarcs wanted to have the public hearing on the resolution to be at the commissioners’ Feb. 13 meeting but it “didn’t work out” because the commissioners needed to have a work study session first. Vakarcs said that for any new projects where people will be connecting to the sewer line, the public works department has been letting them know that the newcomer’s assessment fees would be

increasing in Central Kitsap. “We were very conscious to make sure people knew the fees were going up,” she said. The last time the rate in Central Kitsap was adjusted was in 1996, said Vakarcs, adding that the newcomer’s fees are increased or adjusted every March 1. Commissioner Josh Brown said that those who pay the newcomer’s assessment fees in Central Kitsap will not be subsidizing projects in other parts of the county. Central Kitsap sewer also serves the city of Poulsbo and the Naval Base Kitsap Bangor and Keyport bases. While the fees will increase in Central Kitsap, the newcomer’s assessment fees for other areas in the county do not need to increase based on the rate analysis. Kingston, Suquamish and Manchester

sewer systems will only be adjusted based on the percentage change in the average annual Consumer Price Index for the Seattle area, Vakarcs said.

All sewer systems are adjusted annually based on the CPI-U. The estimated revenue increase for 2012 will be $88,000 from the updated

Public’s knowledge 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. In publishing public notices in newspapers of record, local government acknowledges that government itself carries the burden 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, generalinterest newspaper remains the vehicle with the widest reach to the widest cross-section of the community. And we can prove it. Sound Publishing, the owner of this newspaper, alone reaches 700,000 Washington households through our print publications. Our colleagues from newspaper organizations around the state maintain commensurately broad distribution within their own communities. This is not “theoretical” reach, a “potential” audience that may or may not

Facts please It saddens me to see the poor judgement displayed by you in publishing the “In Our Opinion” piece in the Feb. 24, 2012 edition of The Central Kitsap Reporter. You unjustly insinuated that the 9-yearold boy who brought the gun to school shot the gun point blank at another child. Obviously all the facts of the accidental shooting had not been ascertained at the time your paper needed to go into publication. Yet, you gave your opinion about the child involved as if he had. Such insinuations based on hearsay rather than mostly conclusive evidence harms the child, his family, and our community. I have seen and would expect in the future more ethical reporting. It would be commendable if you would apologize for your words. 



Citizens should be aware of – and opposed to – House Bill 2801 and the provisions that would allow local governments to cease publishing public notices in their local newspapers. The presumed cost savings to local government is in fact false economy – there is a hidden and very dangerous cost. In trying to save money, local governments would curtail access to the legislative process, and ensure that fewer – rather than more – citizens know what their representatives are up to. The publishing of public notices in newspapers of record dates to 1789, when the first Congress required publication of its bills, orders, resolutions and votes in at least three generally available newspapers. The founders recognized that government should not be the gatekeepers of its own information. So their purpose was to require government to report its actions to citizens in a medium independent of government influence or control: the newspaper. It was good policy then, and it remains good policy today. Publishing legal notices in a newspaper of record ensures

Affordable, egalitarian and very popular, general interest newspapers provide precisely what government needs most – a direct and demonstrable conduit to its citizens.

Honor her story

A travesty of justice has lingered too long within the City of Bremerton and a proper and suitable memorial for Lillian Walker is needed! It’s widely known and appreciated that many official awards and recognitions have been bestowed upon Ms. Walker by the City of Bremerton, Kitsap County and the state of Washington. Although the awards are dynamite, none have reached the heights that she earned. I’m sure that the majority of the citizens of Bremerton will agree that Bremerton High School should be re-named to Lillian Walker High School. Ms. Walker never stopping fighting for the civil rights of everyone; especially Black Americans and we’ve all benefited from her efforts and struggles, such as fighting for the rights of the Bremerton Naval Shipyard worker; African American shipyard workers’ employment rights; which helped change working conditions to the better for all the Naval Shipyard workers.

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 today. Walker to take on even the Navy or Deptepartment of Defense. Her changes to the Navy included Navy Black workers being allowed to eat and enjoy their meals at the Triangle Café. She also help organize Bremerton’s YWCA. Another accomplishment included a successful suit of the Kitsap Sun, forcing them to do more positive imagining reporting about Black Americans. She integrated the drug stores. She made positive educational changes at the Bremerton School District positively affecting all Students of Color; which also helped the few African Americans teachers. Ms. Walker’s accomplishments happened between the 1940s and the 1990s; when it was near impossible for any civil rights changes to materialize in Bremerton. Won’t you please lobby the Bremerton School District to re-name its High School to Lillian Walker High? Give our students and citizens an ever-lasting gratitude for our wonderful Bremerton history.

Mrs. Walkers legacy By Regina Hill, Esq. GUEST COLUMN

In recognition of Black History month, the public has been asked to send in letters of support so that something notable will be named Mrs. Lillian Walker, Civil Rights Pioneer. The effort started last year because a participant in the Sustainability Building Advisor Program included a piece concerning how the Bremerton Housing Authority’s redeveloping of Westpark can be characterized as one of the largest gentrification projects that has ever taken place in Washington state. The SBAP is a certificate program offered to professionals eager to apply sustainable strategies to the buildings in the communities they design, construct, and maintain. In an SBAP participant’s project, the BHA was urged to name something notable after Mrs. Lillian Walker, Civil Rights Pioneer as a means for the BHA to be viewed as an agency which appreciates the history of many who reside on its properties. Sustainability professionals are everyday people, from a variety of ethnicities, who are concerned because so many have lost sight of the fact that sustainability of the human race and the health of the planet must go hand in hand. Traditionally, Bremerton’s Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal Church sponsors an annual Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration. The celebration is also traditionally sponsored by the City of Bremerton and the Kitsap County Board of County Commissioners. The pastor of Ebenezer graciously allowed a sample letter of support regarding having something

notable named after Mrs. Walker to be placed in the Jan. 16, 2012 MLK celebration program booklet. It was hoped that the letters would be presented to Mrs. Walker who was a member of Ebenezer but she was called home to glory on Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2012, 11 days before the event. As Ebenezer celebrates its centennial year, another way to honor Mrs. Walker would be to contact Pastor David Malcolm, Jr. and let him know how you can support Ebenezer. During the MLK Jr. celebration, Joan Ferebee, NAACP, Bremerton chapter president, stated that her “hands are bleeding from all the work she has done” as president of the NAACP. Perhaps because annually she stuffs envelopes asking the community to pay to attend the organization’s Freedom Banquet. What Joan did not disclose is that when two lifetime members of the NAACP attempted to breathe life back into the Bremerton chapter of the NAACP by getting anyone to join the NAACP; to add diversity in its membership and gain community support, the lifetime members’ actions were deemed “unbecoming to the NAACP.” Last but not least, Joan did nothing to try to resolve NAACP Bremerton chapter election fraud allegations. Even worse the NAACP’s national office never responded to the petitioners who asked that the election fraud allegations be investigated. When Mrs. Lillian Walker was informed about the turmoil, which was taking place in the Bremerton chapter of the NAACP, the chapter she helped found, she immediately signed a petition to have the alleged wrong doing and election fraud allegations looked into by the

NAACP’s national office. Prior to signing the petition, Mrs. Walker said “Anyone who appears to have been wronged should always have the right to face their wrongdoers. To give wrongdoers the opportunity to admit wrong and correct any hurt caused.” Even though Black History month is over, please keep sending in letters of support to have something notable named after Mrs. Lillian Walker. This is not a Black effort, it is a community effort. Finally, if anyone reading this would support an effort to change the name of future MLK, Jr. Celebrations to: Diversity Day Celebration - In Remembrance of MLK, Jr. please email: youaresustainable@ and state your opinion. President’s Day was once called George Washington Day. Isn’t it time for us to rethink what we call MLK, Jr. programs?

More than a statistic For Bremerton and Kitsap County, it has been a rough couple of weeks. One worst case scenario coming to pass is bad enough but four in a row is a lot to process and handle for individuals as well as the community as a whole. In the past two weeks Bremerton has become a school shooting statistic, a police fatality shooting statistic, a drunken driving fatality statistic and a speeding fatality statistic. Each incident has multiple stories, associated family members and individual faces linked to them. We have lost several valuable community members. In the wake of these losses we have also had citizens and service members who under the worst possible circumstances performed their duties in an exemplary manner that saved a little girl’s life, provided what comfort and assistance they could to the victims that did not survive or helped to capture those involved who would chose to break our laws with such deadly consequences. Bremerton is so much more than these statistics. We are a community in mourning and reflection. We are engaging in moments of silence. We are a community that cares for its own and we are raising money for and paying

Ex-girlfriend facing charges was victim of Blake’s violence By TIM KELLY Port Orchard Independent Editor

Joshua Blake is gone, having killed himself as he was about to be arrested for fatally shooting a Washington State trooper. But his menacing continues to damage others, at least in the eyes of the father of one of Blake’s victims. Jessi Leigh Foster, 32, of Port Orchard is charged with rendering criminal assistance to Blake by allegedly trying to help him get away after he shot and killed Trooper Tony Radulescu. However, her father, Wayne Foster, said it’s her daughter who could never really get away from Blake. “My daughter has a very, very good heart,” he said Friday afternoon after his daughter’s court hearing. “Her ex-boyfriend has misused her for many, many years.” Foster, walking with a cane, looked tired and dispirited as he made his way from the second-floor courtroom to the stairs, with a crush of television reporters asking questions about his daughter and

Blake. Jessi Foster went to help Blake when he called her early Thursday, “not knowing what really happened until later,” Wayne Foster said. And when she met up with Blake, the father of her 3-year-old daughter and with whom she’d had an abusive relationship in the past, she was scared. “She told me she was really frightened; she was paralyzed with fear,” her father said. According to Kitsap County District Court charging documents, Jessi Foster was trying to find a way for Blake to get out of the South Kitsap area shortly before a SWAT team arrived at the Scofield Road location where they were. The documents state that after Blake shot himself inside a trailer, Foster told officers that about 15 to 30 minutes before the SWAT team got there, Blake told her he had shot a police officer. Blake then left the trailer and walked into the woods, despite Foster’s attempts to restrain him because she feared he was going to kill himself. After he left, the documents state, Foster made

two calls and sent a text message trying to get a ride, but she did not call 9-1-1. “She was actively trying to find a way out of the area for him,” Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Sgt. Ken Dickinson said Friday morning at a news conference to provide an update on the investigation of Radulescu’s killing. “He made a statement to her, after she pressed him about why he was in so much trouble, that he shot a cop.” Sheriff Steve Boyer also spoke at the news conference, and he noted that Jessi Foster had been in an abusive relationship with Blake. “She was a victim many, many times at his hands,” Boyer said. “He’s a violent individual.” Besides domestic violence involving Jessi Foster, Blake’s criminal history includes a 2004 assault on a woman who was 18 at the time and had a baby that was Blake’s child. He also had a history of fighting with police. His 2008 conviction on an eluding charge stemmed from an incident when a Port Orchard officer tried to arrest him after a pursuit that involved Blake hitting a police car. Blake

broke free from the officer, ran back to his car and took off again, only to be stopped a short time later by a sheriff ’s deputy. Blake also fought with that officer before fleeing on foot, and finally was arrested after he was chased up a tree by a K9 unit. The attorney representing Jessi Foster, who appeared at Friday’s hearing by video link from the Kitsap County jail, requested a reduction in her $500,000 bail. He also requested the court be moved to Superior Court so Foster can get a speedy trial.

Judge James Riehl maintained the bail amount, however, citing the seriousness of the felony charge against Foster and noting that she had failed to appear for court hearings multiple times in the past when she was charged with DUI and malicious mischief, resulting in bench warrants being issued. Foster, who had numerous relatives and friends in the courtroom, had an earlier court hearing Friday on an unrelated third-degree theft charge from an incident in December.

The charging documents in the felony case state that Foster got a ride from a friend who dropped her off near the property where Blake was on Scofield Road early Thursday. As she walked toward the property, which is about 200 yards south of Scofield down an unpaved private road, Blake came walking to meet her. They then walked back to where Foster had been dropped off and intended to leave the area with her friend, but he had already driven off.

Trooper’s killer had violent, drug-abusing past By TIM KELLY Port Orchard Independent Editor

The gunman who killed Washington State Trooper Tony Radulescu was an ex-convict who went to prison on domestic violence and meth charges and was considered a high risk to commit a violent crime after his release two years ago. Joshua Blake, 28, shot himself in the head Thursday morning inside a trailer on a rural South Kitsap property as a SWAT team closed in on him. He was rushed to Tacoma General Hospital, but was pronounced dead that afternoon. His 32-year-old exgirlfriend, who is the mother of his 3-year-old daughter, was arrested Thursday afternoon and charged with first-degree rendering criminal assistance. She made an initial appearance in Kitsap County District Court on Friday afternoon and remains in custody on $500,000 bail. “She was trying to help him get out of the area,” Kitsap County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ken Dickinson said at a news conference Friday morning at the sheriff’s office. He said Blake had called the woman after the trooper was shot and they met at the property on Scofield Road where Blake shot himself. Officers recoverd a .40-caliber handgun at the scene, but investigators didn’t know yet if that was the gun used to

kill the trooper. Radulescu stopped a 1999 green Ford F350 pickup that Blake was driving on State Route 16 near Gorst around 1 a.m. Thursday. When the trooper did not respond to radio calls after reporting his traffic stop to dispatchers, a Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy went to the scene and found Radulescu lying wounded next to his patrol car. He was taken to St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma, where he died of his wounds. During a manhunt by law enforcement agencies from throughout the region Thursday morning, authorities got a tip that Blake might be at a residence on Scofield Road, a private unpaved road in the area south of Mullenix Ridge Elementary School. Blake’s pickup had been found in Port Orchard earlier that morning, partly concealed in bushes along Sidney Road. Dickinson said investigators have not yet determined how Blake got from where the pickup was found to the Scofield Road location; however, a white Ford Escort was impounded from the same address where the pickup was found. A 2001 graduate of South Kitsap High School, Blake was convicted in 2008 of meth charges, plus fourthdegree assault, malicious mischief and violation of a no-contact order. According to the state Department of Corrections, he was in prison for two-and-a-half years, followed by a period of community supervision beginning in March 2010. But Selena Davis, a DOC

spokeswoman, said Blake often failed to comply with the terms of his community supervision, which sometimes landed him back in jail, most recently for a 47-day stint that began in May 2011. Blake did not complete a required chemical dependency treatment program, and often did not report to his assigned corrections officer, Davis said. But then his supervised time was up. “Mr. Blake has not been under our jurisdiction since August 2011,” Davis said. Sheriff Steve Boyer said at Friday’s news conference that the woman charged with rendering criminal assistance had been in an abusive relationship with Blake. “She was a victim many, many times at his hands,” Boyer said. “He’s a violent individual.” The sheriff and Dickinson also said that when investigators interviewed the woman, she said Blake had told her he shot an officer. “We are confident (Blake) is the one responsible for the tragic shooting of Trooper Tony yesterday,” Boyer said. Radulescu, 44, was a 16-year-veteran who was based in Bremerton, lived in Port Orchard and was well-known in the community. Boyer, who had a long career with the State Patrol before becoming Kitsap County Sheriff, was his former supervisor. “There was no finer individual,” Boyer said Friday. Reporter Brett Cihon contributed to this story.

Trooper’s killer told passenger to ‘turn her head’ The 18-year-old woman who was with Joshua Blake has told investigators she and Blake were high on meth and alcohol when he told her “to roll down her window and turn her head” before he shot and killed Washington State Trooper Tony Radulescu during a traffic stop. Megan Mollet is one of four South Kitsap residents who were arrested Friday and made their initial court appearances Monday afternoon on charges of firstdegree rendering criminal assistance. When sheriff’s detectives first interviewed Mollet about 6 a.m. Thursday, five hours after Radulescu was shot on State Route 16 near Gorst, she denied knowing anything about the shooting and denied that she knew Blake. However, a couple hours later other officers talked with her brother-in-law, Ray White, who told them Mollet — his

wife’s sister — and Blake lived with them in the 4100 block of Alder Road West in Bremerton. Mollet and the other three suspects — Andrew Bartlett, 30, Corinne Nelson, 26, and Daniel Carter, 37 — were all contacted Thursday morning at the residence at 4299 Sidney Road where Blake’s pickup was found, before he was tracked a few hours later to a Scofield Road property where he shot and killed himself as a SWAT team closed in on him. According to the charging documents, after Mollet was booked in the county jail, she said she and Blake were using meth and alcohol at the Alder Road West residence before they decided to visit friends in Port Orchard. A few minutes later Radulescu pulled the pickup over, and when he approached the passenger side and asked to see the vehicle registration and

insurance, Blake reached toward the glove compartment as if to get the documents but instead pointed a gun at the trooper and shot him in the face. When Mollet told a friend sometime after Blake shot himself Thursday about what happened, she said when the truck was stopped that Blake told her “to roll down the window and turn her head,” according to court documents. After Blake and Mollet arrived at the Sidney Road residence sometime after 1 a.m. Thursday, she stayed there while Blake left with Bartlett in a car driven by Nelson. They first drove to a residence in the Belfair area, where Blake went inside briefly but came back out, then they drove to Scofield Road, where he had arranged to meet his ex-girlfriend, Jessi Foster. She also has been charged with rendering

criminal assistance. Bartlett admitted to investigators that while they were driving to Scofield, Blake told them he shot an officer and also threw his cell phone out the window after taking the SIM card out. Carter, who lives at the Sidney Road address and is Nelson’s boyfriend, initially told investigators that Blake arrived at his residence alone, hid his truck in the bushes and said he had just shot “someone” and needed a ride out of the area. Since Carter did not have a driver’s license, Nelson agreed to drive Blake while Carter stayed at the

residence with Mollet. All four suspects allegedly knew that Blake had shot a state trooper but did not notify authorities. Ray White and his wife were at Mollet’s court hearing Monday, and afterward he told reporters that he was Josh Blake’s “best friend,” and that his sister-in-law was too traumatized after witnessing the shooting to know what to do. “She didn’t ask for any of this,” White said. “She didn’t do anything.” Asked why Blake would have shot the trooper, he replied, “Honestly, I couldn’t

Bremerton City councilmember Greg Wheeler explains the safety goal of connecting neighbors during scary times. city has rearranged its police department to support the murder investigation. The detective division has absorbed special operations, two detectives from the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, one detective from Port Orchard and pulled in two officers who are trained investigators. Those men and women are supported by the FBI and their profiling team, he said. At that point, a citizen threw a question at Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent standing in the wings. “How is the overtime effecting the budget,” he asked? “We’re prepared to do whatever it takes,” Lent said. Her response drew applause. Rev. Richmond Johnson told the police he was concerned about the possible use of racial profiling as the investigation grows. Police describe a light skinned black or mixed race male, in his late teens or early twenties, 72-inches tall with slender build and a blemish near the

near his nose or lip. Johnson, from Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church, said that he knew of a 10th-grader at Bremerton High School who had been stopped and questioned four times because he resembles the police sketch of the “person of interest.” But, the student does not fit the rest of the physical description, said Johnson. “If [police] see someone who remotely fits that description we’re going to have a conversation,” Fisher said, before adding the caveat that the first interaction between police and the student “wasn’t good.” “As long as we don’t violate constitutional rights, we will continue,” Fisher said. Wheeler said he understood the mireade of concern spilled out by residents last week. He now escorts his daughter to the high school a few blocks from home. “People are very very afraid. People are concerned,” Wheeler said.

tell you, man,” adding, “It’s hard to understand how this happened.” “I still don’t know what to think about it,” White said. “I feel bad for the trooper’s family; I heard he was a really good guy. It’s awful.” White also said Blake called him Thursday morning to ask for help, but White declined. He said Mollet has lived with him and his wife for more than two years, but Blake had been living at their place for just the past month or two. As for Mollet, White said he talked to her on Thursday after Radulescu had been shot and Blake had killed himself, and “she just wasn’t the same. “I can’t imagine anyone would be the same after

CONCERNS he said. The Seattle times reported that on Feb. 21 police interviewed a person of interest, in the Bremerton murders, on South Juneau Street in Seattle. No arrest has been made in the two murders and assault. Police continue to withhold the manner of and location of Brannon’s death, but Fisher told the Seattle Times that the department cannot “conclusively” link the murders to one person. Fisher told residents that he accepts that they are “frustrated”, but said that investigation goals preclude him from giving specific details. “We need to protect the integrity [of the investigation],” Fisher said. Instead, basic urban home safety tips were given. Trim bushes back, turn lights on and form neighborhood watches, advised Bremerton police officer Andy Oakley. The block on which Brannon was murdered formed a watch. It’s an easy and effective thing to do, he said. Wheeler said the whole point of the gathering was to connect people. Through stronger neighbor-to-neighbor relationships and residents simply checking on each other and keeping an eye out, the city will become safer, he said. Answering the large and worried crowd the best he could, Fisher said that the

North Idaho powder fest

Down from the alpine into the powder saoked trees By GREG SKINNER

Ripping through naked pines covering the North Idaho Selkirk Mountains like bristly fir, I couldn’t believe that I was happy with the “low-angle” skiing. As a Cascade skier, I consider myself steeped in the steeps. Steeper than 30 degrees anyway. The surprise was as real as chest-deep turns happening on the lee slopes of “Larch Park,” the name given to a ridge, covered in old-growth tamarack, by the owners of Caribou Mountain Lodge. The Gods favored our group of skiers and started a four-day snow storm on Friday of Presidents Day weekend as we skied and snow-machined over old skid roads on the way in to the wind and solar powered lodge setting at 3,300 feet, just north of Sand Point, ID. The gathering included 10 skiers of all levels looking for celebration weekend of self-

propelled powder skiing. The sleds were destine to sit snow-covered the entire weekend. The skiable terrain surrounding the lodge ranges from old-growth tamarack skiing to 1,400-foot runs down the alpine bowl from the summit of Caribou Peak, a few miles up the ridge. Perhaps the most ambitious ski tour from the lodge is the “Redneck Traverse.” North Idaho’s aptly named version of a Haute Route works its way up Caribou then heads south crossing two more peaks, each with a fair descent, before ending near Sand Point’s Schweitzer Mountain Ski Area. For miles in any direction are glades that are regularly in shape with a base and skiable by the New Year, or sooner. The pulsing storms of President’s Day weekend kept our group of skiers out of the alpine and in the relative safety of the trees and nearer the lodge’s wood fire and endless rotation of celebration meals centered around roasted meats, wine and beer and old-time acoustic music. It’s precisely that overall context in

the form or comfort and companionship which can make a weekend of short-descent tree skiing fun for an alpine junky that’s generally happy to sleep in a snow cave or tent. Untracked and flawless powder turns found in in the safest of conditions for the entire weekend held down to zero on the usual pucker factor that often rises to near maximum level while chasing untracked powder with other “friends.” That Sunday, Feb. 19, as the Cascade ski community went into shock over the avalanche deaths of several skiers and a snowboarder, our nearby trees tree runs full of laughter and satisfaction. Being off the grid and not knowing of the disaster we kept on breaking trail through over-the-knee snow and skiing untracked glades. The constantly falling snow and avalanche danger was a matter of evening discussion on whether or not to go higher up for skiing the next day. Our eventual logic was aided by the blower pow stacking up in the trees a spitting distance away. Stay in the trees. Because of that constantly falling

snow, an indoor lunch could be followed by a few “Front Porch Runs,” which actually start from where skis and snowboards were dumped following a longer morning ski tour with multiple powder laps farther up the ridge. “Critters Run” and the rest of the downslope from the front porch of the house are what lodge owner Mark Remmetter, a tele skier, considers are the makings of his backyard. Skiers from the city might consider the overall acreage of Remmetter’s personal ski situation gluttonous. Others that visit might say he is a mad genius. Skinning his way up that day’s track, after his second lap through the storm’s heavy deposit into glades of perfectly spaced trees, Remmetter said that his “yard” rarely sees 24-inches at a time. Smiling, he said, “You’ve got to get it while you can.” Much like the plentiful and solitary backcountry huts built in the most desirable backcountry ski terrain by See POWDERFEST, A9

the Canadian Alpine Club system to the north, skiers haul in food and supplies to cook for and look after themselves at the lodge. Replete with its own form of vista, the main difference between the Caribou Mountain Lodge and most huts, cabins and yurts, comes out in solar and wind generated electricity, hot and cold running water, flush toilets and the soft beds with plush bedding. Up on the ridge well below the old fire lookout, you can choose to cook with wood or propane. For the luddite in every visiting ski group, there is a outhouse situated nearby at the edge of the timber with a decent view. I was invited along on the annual gathering of North Idaho residents that celebrate their friend’s “age ascension” by ski-touring together between fine meals after my brother-in-law Steve, a land surveyor and tele skier, was called away by work. A mining job near McCall required a surveyor that could ski out of a helicopter. With a brother-in-law like Steve, the lodge was not my first backcountry rodeo in the Selkirks. Though much of the range is easily penetrated during the snow-free summer and fall months through wild network of logging roads, most of the area is cut off and difficult to access to when the snow begins to pile up in winter. Generally, to access the powdery goods in the Selkirk backcountry, a skier needs one of three things; lots and lots of time and energy to ski the approach, a snow machine or a rotary wing aircraft. On occasion, a logging company will push snow and open a road to a high enough enough elevation to access skiable terrain with a front wheel drive

The locals have every form of transport possible, including the helicopters. A few years back, Steve woke me from a cabin floor, where I lay enduring a post Christmas food coma, with a Boxing Day surprise of redneck heli runs. A family friend twice dropped us out of a little three-seater helicopter onto Roman Nose, a larger peak a few miles to the southwest of Caribou peak. After many tours of the Selkirk’s more heady alpine reaches and in Southern B.C., the comforts and safety of the ridge-top lodge and its deep powdery tree turns were welcomed.

Ed Johanson 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.

Teachers say more specific feedback benefits students

“It’s good to have high standards,” Merrill said. “My concern is that if kids are doing well and getting 4s across the board, how do they know the 4s equate to an A and not be surprised when they get an A minus?” With standards-based grading, a 3.72 to 4 equals an A grade, whereas in the old grading system an A was from a 3.85 to 4. In turn, what used to be a D grade, anything from 1.67 to 1.99, now with standards-based grading is 1.72 to 1.99. Anything below a 1.719 is failing with standards-based grading. The old system, it was 1.66 and below. Kulbeth said she thinks it would have been better to start a new grading system with a new set of students — incoming freshmen — rather than students who already have established grade point averages. “This is helping the students who wouldn’t do so well otherwise and discouraging students who do well,” she said.


Max Cowdery, a sophomore at Bremerton High School isn’t accustomed to the numbers he receives for English assignments. Those numbers come from a rating system with standards-based grading. “I don’t understand it really,” he said. “I’ve grown up with the As, Bs, Cs scale. It’s a transition.” The transition is one that all Bremerton secondary students will go through to reach Bremerton School District’s goal of standards-based grading in all classes at the middle and high schools for the 20122013 school year. While Bremerton teachers and administrators say standards-based grading will allow students to make specific improvements on something they don’t grasp or what part of the writing process in which they remain unproficient some parents have concerns that the grading system will “bump up” or inflate the grades of students who put minimal efforts. This school year, the district is in the middle of a pilot program using standardsbased grading in English and Language Arts classes at Mountain View Middle School and the high school. The high school has an accompanying electronic grade program. While students still earn a letter grade for the course, instead of receiving a percentage or letter grade for assignments, projects and tests, they receive a proficiency detail — between the number 1 and 4 — to indicate their progress toward the specific standard. If a student earns a 2 or lower, it means the student is not meeting the standard. “It’s actually more accurate than the old system,” said Cindy McClain, who teaches English in grades 10 through 12 at the high school. She added that it will just take some getting used to by students and parents because everyone is accustomed to an 100-point scale. An example for a reading standard is “key ideas and details” in the literary category. If a student does not meet the proficiency for this standard, it does not mean that the student is below grade level in other standards in reading. The specific proficiency standards are developed from

At a meeting last Thursday to explain the new grading system to parents, many raised concerns about how standards-based grading could affect their children. Carmela Kulbeth said in her daughter’s 12th grade English class, only one student received an A, followed by many Bs and Cs and no one received Fs.

grants should be spent in Washington state. Volunteers will score grant applications submitted in two statewide programs: the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program and the Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account. Seven volunteers are needed to evaluate grant application for park and shoreline users.Each volunteer is asked to serve for four years and meet infrequently, about six weekdays every two years. The WWRP provides money for a range of land protection and outdoor recreation, including park acquisition and development, habitat conservation, farmland preservation and construction of outdoor recreation facilities. Created in 1984 by the Washington State Legislature, ALEA works to ensure that money generated from aquatic lands, including all tidelands, shore lands, harbor areas and the beds of navigable waters is used for their subsequent protection and enhancement. Grants may be used for the acquisition, improvement, or protection of aquatic lands to public purposes and may be used to provide or improve public access to the waterfront. Trail advisory committee is looking for four volunteers to review grant applications for projects that build or renovate trails. Those with experience in project design or management, landscape architecture, planning, engineering, permitting and property acquisition are encouraged to apply. Volunteers would serve four years and meet six times every two years.

The WWRP’s Farmland Advisory Committee needs six individuals to review applications for projects that conserve farmland. Participants would meet infrequently and serve four years. Wi ld life Habitat Conservationists need 50 volunteers to evaluate applications for preserving wildlife habitat. Volunteers meet up to five weekdays in the summer. They seek those with experience in natural resource sciences, conservation easements, urban planning and fish and wildlife management. The state seeks one individual to serve on the Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account Advisory Committee as a shoreline conservationist to represent local government. The qualified volunteer would be familiar with shoreline habitat protection and meet up to six weekdays in the summers of 2012 and 2014. Travel expenses are usually paid to citizens, local government and nonprofit members. To apply, send a completed application and support materials to RCO by March 30. Applications are available online at advisory_cmte.shtml.

Body found in Poulsbo is missing PO man By MEGAN STEPHENSON A body found in the woods near NW Commerce Street in Poulsbo last week 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. The county coroner ruled his death a suicide. A K-9 unit and volunteers first searched for Burlew on Jan. 14 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 smallcaliber gun and a cell phone under the body. Coroner Greg Sandstrom said Burlew had been deceased since the time he had been reported missing. Sheriff ’s spokesman Deputy Scott Wilson said it is standard procedure to conduct a second search, and 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. According to the sheriff ’s missing person investigation, Burlew was living with his aunt in Port Orchard. His family had posted flyers around Kitsap County and in Port Townsend, and had received a few unsubstantiated reports of Burlew’s sighting. |

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.

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. —

Port Orchard Independent Boat explosion injures five: A boat docked at the Port Orchard Yacht Club exploded Feb. 27, injuring five people. 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). From left, ErathWnery’s 2009 Pinot Gris, Waterbrook Winery’s 2010 Pinot Gris, Willow Crest Winery’s 2010 Estate Pinot Gris. All of them are clean and refreshing with a hint of sweetness.
