Felony charges leveled in Bremerton school shooting Mother and boyfriend face responsibility in shooting of 3rd-grade girl by gun in classmate’s backpack By GREG SKINNER

Panhandlers seek help from drivers at the southbound exist of State Highway 3 at Kitsap Way in Bremerton Feb. 28, 2012. Recent complaints led to an ad-hoc public health summit to begin work on the growing homelessness in Kitsap County.

Public health takes lead in homelessness issues Thousands report being homeless as state and federal funds dry up By Greg Skinner

Recent complaints don’t represent the entirety of the growing homelessness problem in Kitsap County, but they did push the public health department into action. Last week, Kitsap Public Health director Scott Lindquist put out a call to a host of social service agencies, and others affected by homelessness. He said no one else had taken he lead so he wanted to spur the community to begin work solving some aspects of the problem. The meeting was called after a property owner on Wheaton Way, just past

the city line, sent a letter to the Board of County Commissioners and the health district complaining of homeless people living in the woods near Safeway. Complaints have also come from at least one business near the intersection of Kitsap Way and Highway 3. Though the county has been tracking the increase in homelessness since 2009, when they discovered some interesting food stamp data, Lindquist called the meeting after personally investigating the complaint made by the property owner. The time is now for the entire community to deal with its homeless problem. Homelessness is a public health issue without an agency to directly deal with it and with the continued decline of federal and state dollars for social services, it is the community that will have to fund the fix, Lindquist said. “And, not just liberal do gooders,” he said. Salvation Army Maj. Jim Baker was

among the estimated 50 local social service providers to attend the adhoc summit held at the Norm Dicks Government Center in BRemerton. No real answers came from the meeting, he said. Considering the varied demographics of homelessness and its causes, Baker said no central solution would likely rise from any future meetings going forward. Lindquist said the problem solving process has just begun and more work will come. Regarding the “chronically homeless,” the men who are the center of the complaints, there is little Baker said his organization can do so he spends time and resources in select areas that he can help. Most agree that no one is going to force a person who prefers to live in the woods for whatever reason. During the Jan. 18 snowstorm that dropped half a See homeless, A8

Police Monday confirmed that the gun that discharged in a Bremerton classroom sending a large caliber bullet through a 3rd-grader’s arm and into her spine belonged to the boyfriend of the mother of the child that brought the gun to school. Both have been charged in connection to the shooting. Bremerton Police say that Douglas A. Bauer’s lack of security with a loaded gun and his allowing easy access to the gun, established his guilt in the “unlawful” possession of a gun by a 9-year-old boy and ultimately led to the shooting of 8-year-old Amina Kocer-Bowman, said Bremerton Police Lt. Peter Fisher in a satement release just before the close of business Monday. Along with Bauer, the mother of the boy who brought the handgun to school has been charged for illegally possessing two guns, which police found at her home on the day of the shooting. Police say they found a loaded Mossberg 500 12 gauge shotgun leaning against a night stand and a loaded Sig Sauer P226 9mm semiautomatic handgun sitting next to a computer. As a felon, Jamie Lee Passmore did not have a right to own or possess a gun. Neither has been arrested. Fisher said Bauer and Passmore were out of state at a pre-planned See HOMELESS, A8event

and would be arrested upon their return. At the moment, fisher said he was not concerned about the risk of flight. According to police the 9-year-old boy that brought a H&K .45 cal. semi-automatic handgun with a round in the chamber to Armin Jarh Elementary School on Feb. 22, had visited his mom’s house when he took the gun from her boyfriend. The Allyn area home had two loaded and unsecured guns out when police visited within hours of the girl being shot. Kocer-Bowman remains in serious condition in a Seattle hospital following five surgeries. Police say that the gun, sitting in the pack with a round in the chamber, fired on its own. The accidental discharge happened about one minute before school let out for Wednesday early release. Police claim that her own actions of leaving loaded weapons around the house and allowing her son easy access to guns contributed directly to the shooting of KocerBowman. Kitsap County prosecutors recently said they would seek therapy and probation for the child that brought the gun to school. He was charged with third-degree unlawful possession of a gun.

Storied Congressman Norm Dicks to retire Kilmer throws hat in to take over 6th District. By GREG SKINNER

After completing his 18th term in Congress, U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks will retire from serving the 6th Congressional District. Dicks, a Bremerton native said he and his wife decided to change gears and live at a “different pace.” He now resides on Bainbridge Island. “The privilege of serving in the

With the support of three key Democrats who share similar conceptual views on the budget, Republicans wielded a little-used procedural tactic to maneuver into control of Senate budget proceedings on Friday in Olympia. A Republican budget plan, couched in an amendment to a base Democratic proposal, was approved by the Senate, 25-24 early Saturday morn-

ing after some eight hours of debate. Three moderate Democrats, Sens. Tim Sheldon (35th, Potlatch), Rodney Tom (48th, Medina) and Jim Kastama (25th, Puyallup) sided with Republicans, giving them the vital 25 votes and majority necessary to invoke what is called the “Ninth Order of Business.” The procedural ploy allowed them to bring the governor’s budget proposal that was before the Way and

Community character There is no doubt that more people are homeless in the county than when the recession began. Many of them have begun to reach out for money, literally. Between May 2009 and October 2011, the number of people that self-reported homelessness, while receiving basic food assistance, doubled to 2,215, half of those reported living outside. Social problems created by the current increase in homelessness should be dealt with by policy-creating elected bodies and policing agencies in a manner that includes compassion and common sense along with regulation and legal requirements that come from bureaucratic action of any sort. At this point during the recession, most of the homeless in the county did not choose to be homeless nor is their current status as such tied directly to personal action, choice or lifestyle. They were once your neighbor and lived in that house which now sits foreclosed. Now without a home, they remain citizens and deserving of the same attention as currently employed tax payers Those that do choose the

Some homeless say they won’t go to the shelter because of the rules, others outright say they’d prefer to stay in whichever situation better allows their drinking and drug use.

Those pictures have appeared in our pages over the last few months. Since the first of the year, four out of nine of our front pages have carried news of our homeless population. Two, including this week’s, tell of the chronic homelessness and two explain a bit about life for the less stereotypically obvious homeless – those who want their homelessness to end as quick as possible.

The Washington State Patrol would like to thank all the wonderful people of Washington who showed their compassion and care following the tragic death Trooper Tony Radulescu. When we in law enforcement lose one of our own, the outpouring of support from Washingtonians is a big factor in easing a very difficult time, and helping with the healing process that follows. We find real comfort in a community that cares, and I can assure you, so do the family and friends of the fallen officer.

So on behalf of all of us who work to protect our citizens, I want to express our gratitude for all of the support we have received from the communities, citizens, agencies, media, and others. Thank you for the funds, food, time, and so much more. Your support helped all involved better grieve and honor Trooper Radulescu’s life. Trooper Radulescu’s death is not only a loss to our agency and the state of Washington, but to law enforcement as a whole. We are always mindful of the price that is paid to safeguard our citizens. Trooper Radulescu will never be forgotten. Thank you for your care and kindness. Chief John R. Batiste Washington State Patrol

Indian College’s campus on the Muckleshoot Tribe’s reservation near Auburn. Food sovereignty is the right of people to eat healthy traditional foods that are produced sustainably and don’t harm the environment. The program grew from a project by the Muckleshoot, Tulalip and Suquamish tribes and the Burke Museum at the University of Washington. The museum developed a list of traditional foods that Indian people ate before nonIndians arrived in Western Washington. The Food Sovereignty program helps tribal members make those foods – such as nettles, camas, huckleberries, salmon and wild game – part of their everyday lives. The project reminds us that to have traditional foods, we must continue to be good natural resources managers. Our treaties recognize that food is at the center of our cultures. Indian tribes are sovereign nations, and part of that sovereignty includes access to the traditional foods needed to keep ourselves and our communities healthy and strong.

Hello from Las Vegas. I am on vacation and I am satisfying my full on passion for NASCAR racing this weekend. It’s really too bad I have to travel all the way to Las Vegas to watch a race in person, but I so love hanging out with 150,000 of my fellow NASCAR fans. Washington had a shot for NASCAR but they blew it. Alright, maybe Kitsap County was not the best fit given other regional choices, but our elected leadership in Olympia shot the opportunity down in such a manner that Washington state will most likely never have a chance at a venue of caliber again. So, I and many other Northwest NASCAR fans take our money and spend it in another state that does provide a top class venue for the sport we all so love. Adding insult to injury, my own community did not serve me well this past week. I booked an appointment last Saturday at a downtown Bremerton spa that I enjoy patronizing. Since I could not park near the spa itself, because of the latest vanity construction project currently underway on Fourth Street, I chose a spot on Pacific Avenue instead. I was slightly early for my appointment so I took the time to buy a coffee at Cornerstone Coffee and then headed to my appointment. It was my intention to be pampered for a couple of hours at the spa and then indulge in lunch at one of the various establishments downtown before heading home. All of my lovely

Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club remains shut down Poulsbo range sees increase in usage, people worry about unsafe shooting in woods By KRISTIN OKINAKA

The Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club appeared in court last week to get its shuttered shooting range reopened. Superior Court Judge Susan Serko last Friday remained by her original order to keep the Seabeck shooting range closed. It could reopen if a Washington State Court of Appeals decision says so. The club’s attorney had filed a motion to stay the judge’s order that shut down the range in February. “As far as she’s concerned, the club would have to go somewhere else to get relief,” Marcus Carter, executive officer of the club, said Monday. Carter said the club’s appeal to the court decision was filed and additional research is ongoing. He

added that they are looking at “several issues” but primarily are focusing on what can be done to get the club operational again. The next step would be to move for a stay within the appeals court, Carter said. 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 suit was brought by Kitsap County Prosecutor Russell Hauge in September 2010. The club immediately shut down its shooting range, following the judge’s order, and has been doing maintenance and cleaning on site. With the club being shut down to shooting since last month, people have had to find alternatives and some people are saying those alternatives are not in the best interest of

Marcus Carter, executive officer of Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club, helps another member at the Seabeck range last summer. the community. Rob Potter, of Olalla, has been a member of the club for about three years. He spoke to the Board of County Commissioners during the public input period of the commissioners’ regular business meeting last Monday to voice his concerns regarding where people are sup-

posed to go shoot with the club’s range being shut down. “There’s a huge demand. Where are these people going to go? What’s the recommendation?” he asked the commissioners. “I recommend folks follow the law,” said Commissioner Josh Brown, adding that the county is

looking at working with the club to have it be able to reopen as a shooting range. Potter said he believes people are going out into the woods, on the sides of roads and in yards to shoot now that the Seabeck club is closed. “People will find a place whether it’s safe or not,” Potter said. “That’s a major concern.” Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club currently has a membership of under 500 people but in the past, has had close to 1,000 members and a high of 1,200, Carter said. Brown added that the Poulsbo Sportsman Club has been doing a good job at providing a safe environment for shooting. Members at the Poulsbo club say they have seen an increase in usage since Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club shut down. Since the Seabeck club has closed, Doug O’Connor, president of the Poulsbo Sportsman Club, said their range usage increased by 30 to 60 percent in weekend “community” shooters — those who are not memSee RANGE, A15

Bremerton schools levy discussion continues Money needed for new high school roof By KRISTIN OKINAKA

Aside from a new central kitchen and the expansion of the West Hills STEM Academy, high on the Bremerton School District’s

list of improvement projects is topped with replacing Bremerton High School’s 25-year-old leaking, cracking and moss-covered roof, which is still under warranty. The roof’s condition and why district officials — who are now not in office — decided to install the concrete roof were discussed at the Bremerton School Board’s meeting last Thursday.

Shirley Kinsman June 16, 1922 to Jan. 20, 2012 Shirley spent her childhood in Hebron, North Dakota, moving to the Seattle area at age 12. There she met the love of her life, Ben Kinsman. They were married in 1940 and happily raised four children in the home which they built themselves. After Ben’s death in 1977, Shirley moved to Wildcat Lake to start the next chapter of her life. Through volunteer activities, her church, and Sons of Norway, she made a host of new friends, touching many lives. During her final years at Belmont Terrace in Bremerton, the staff and caregivers became her extended family. Shirley’s son, Dan, died in 2000. She will be missed by her daughters, Judy Beatty, Jerri Kaeser and Janis Landon, her three sons-in-law and one daughter-in-law. She was also dearly loved by three generations of grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. A celebration of life will be held March 17, at 1 p.m. at Summit Avenue Presbyterian Church, 403 S. Summit Ave., Bremerton. In remembrance of Shirley’s giving spirit, please be a blessing in someones life, in any way you choose. TRIBUTE Paid Notice

“[The roof] needs to be one more suitable. I can’t guess what they were thinking when they decided on it,” district finance and operations director Wayne Lindberg said Tuesday. “It is proven to not be very durable in this weather.” Going through the roof’s limited 50-year warranty, Lindberg and the district’s attorney discovered that many things such as surface cracking or chipping and stepping on the roof to fix it, are not included in the warranty. A

new metal roof replacement would cost about $1.9 million. The District Facilities Committee compiled a list of improvement projects and the new high school roof is one that is suggested be tended to within the next four years. It’s projects like a new high school roof that money from a capital projects levy would go toward. While the school board has not made any official decision on moving forward with a levy or what the amount would be,

discussions continue, said board member Scott Rahm Tuesday. Lindberg said that one potential levy option he has suggested would gather $7.6 million in four years. This would be a 59-cent increase in taxes per $1,000 of a home’s assessed value beginning in 2013. The list of district projects that the facilities committee suggests should be addressed within the next four years make up about $11.6 million in costs. In addition to a new high school roof, central kitchen and the West Hills addition, it includes upgrading fire alarm panels to meet new codes, roof replacement at other buildings, general energy upgrades and updating student technology. Wendy Stevens, chair of Citizens for Good Schools Bremerton, said the volunteer committee has primarily been receiving positive feedback from community members regarding moving forward with a capital projects levy. “Overall there’s an understanding that we’re a financially responsible district,” Stevens said. “We’re not going to close programs. We need to take care of buildings.” While Stevens has a child in kindergarten in the district, she said it doesn’t matter what grade a student is in because the school buildings

need to be maintained now or the district will have to pay the consequence in higher costs for repairs later. Rahm said at this point, no one can dispute that the facilities need to be maintained. With cuts from the state and federal level to education, Rahm added that there are not too many other ways to go about getting the needed money. Putting a capital projects levy to an August vote has been discussed by board members. “You hate to ask the community for more support, but our options now days are limited,” Rahm said. Because the high school roof is more than 22 years old, Lindberg said there is the potential to receive some state matching dollars, should a levy be approved and pass. Such a matching fund would hopefully cover 50 percent of the cost, he said. Work to replace the roof could begin as early as this summer. Other ways to alleviate costs of repair projects would be through receiving grants, where possible, such as with the STEM school expansion. The school board is expected to determine a levy amount and length at the March 15 board meeting followed by a resolution prepared at the end of the month or in early April, said Lindberg. For an August election, a resolution deadline is May.

Silverdale incorporation election this summer Citizens United for Silverdale, the committee supporting Silverdale cityhood, filed a Notice of Intention with the Boundary Review Board last month and the next steps will be for the board to hold a public hearing on the incorporation effort. Initial discussions revolved around a spring ballot measure to go to voters, the committee is now planning for an August election, Marcus Hoffman, committee spokesman said Tuesday. Once the committee’s Notice of Intention is considered sufficient, a date for the public hearing will be set, said Carolyn Gourley, the review board’s chief clerk. She said Tuesday that she is waiting for a few corrections to the notice. “Chances are, the hearing won’t be this month, could be next month,” she said. Hoffman said the committee continues to give presentations on the benefits of Silverdale incorporation to different groups. “We want people to contact us to present to their group. It doesn’t have to be a political group, but most member should live in Silverdale,” he said. For more information or to arrange for a group presentation, Hoffman can be reached at (360) 308-2233.

foot or more of snow, several homeless people living in a camp above auto row said they’d rather stay in camp than enter a shelter. One idea batted around at the recent meeting was for the city of Bremerton to create anti-panhandling laws. Baker said that some in attendance were for it and others against. There was a recent example of a mother “flying a sign” at the offramp looking to get diapers for a child. Bremerton City Council President Jim McDonald said that he was not aware of any talk about the city preparing a panhandler law, as rumors

have suggested. Nothing discussing such an issue has come through the Public Safety and Parks Committee, he said. McDonald added that he has never personally experienced panhandling in Bremerton and questioned a policy that would fine already finically disadvantaged people. Like the aware citizens of the county, Lindquist said he’s seen the rise in the total number of panhandlers. It’s

What to do as an individual citizen facing a panhandler is a primary question, according to Lindquist. Do you give them money or not? Perhaps giving to the Salvation Army or the United Way is better, he said. Siri Cushman, an epidemiologist with Kitsap Public

Health, said the homelessness trend locally has been “increase, increase, increase.” However, data shows a decrease in the percentage of homeless that report they are living outside, or without any consistent shelter. Total percentage dropped 12 percent since 2009. Cushman said the trend showed that those who report being homeless have changed with time during the recession. The preponderance of reporting homeless are living with family or friends, she said. Those people are not the cornice homeless at the center of the complaints. To blame growing homeless situation on anything beyond the 2007 recession and the bad economy would be noting more than a guess, she said. Based on food stamp data,

2,437 people in Kitsap selfreported as homeless at the close of 2011, up 50 percent since May 2009. Of those homeless, 1,255 said they had no regular place to live inside. “It’s lost jobs,” Cushman said. “People who weren’t traditionally asking for help are now asking.” Beyond the men living in the “Safeway woods,” there are other camps. Lindquist visited the site of the camp on Wheaton Way and said he found nine people living in tents, with water, food and sanitation was not entirely

unacceptable. Baker said that some chronically homeless people want to live deep in the woods. Lindquist described the Safeway camp residents as “heavy drinkers.” “It’s a tough crowd,” Lindquist said. “They’re not a shelter crowd.” Shelters in town generally require sobriety and lack of violent history. Sally’s Camp is for couples and families. “The majority of Sally’s Camp [residents] are short term homeless,” Baker said. “They don’t want to be homeless.”

Kitsap Computing Seniors celebrates 20 years Mousing, spreadsheets, computer safety, social networking — club’s classes have it covered By KRISTIN OKINAKA

Ward Hinrichs didn’t know how to turn a computer on before taking a class. Now, the 78-year-old is uploading digital photos onto his computer and uses video conferencing technology to communicate with his children. “When our grandkids started using computers, we knew we were behind,” Hinrichs said of his and his wife’s computer training. Hinrichs said it was his children that encouraged him and his wife to become computer literate. Before taking computer classes with Kitsap Computing Seniors 15 years ago, he said they knew “nothing” about the electronic devices. He wasn’t even sure he wanted to learn at first. Now he doesn’t know what he would do without computers. “It’s just knowledge. Everybody wants knowledge,” he said. Kitsap Computing Seniors, a nonprofit that provides a range of computer skills and software classes, will be celebrating its 20th anniversary. The club will have an anniversary event from 10 a.m. to noon March 19 for its members as well as the community at the Silverdale Community Center. Founded in early 1992, the nonprofit started out with about 30 people and now has about 250 members. Any given week, there is always

some type of computer class offered for seniors from three classes a week to about six classes a week, ranging from mousing basics to Macintosh

Kitsap Computing Seniors navigation and PowerPoint and Excel spreadsheet classes. A Board of Trustees governs the club and elects officers. Kitsap Computing Seniors is chartered as an educational organization and has monthly general meetings and board meetings. Larry DuSavage, president of the club who also teaches some of the classes, said there is no age restriction to be part of the group but the age range is from 62 to 92 years. They don’t turn anyone away, he said. People pay a $20 membership fee a year, which is good for participating in any of the classes offered. Kitsap Regional Library, Kitsap County and the Bremerton School District offers the club free work space and computers to use at the Sylvan Way Library, Silverdale Community Center and Mountain View Middle School. While some classes have a waiting list, DuSavage said there is also one-on-one computer help available. Although some seniors may be apprehensive to learn even the basics of computers,

Members of Kitsap Computing Seniors take a class on digital photography editing at the computer lab at Mountain View Middle School. The club is open to anyone to join and is celebrating its 20th anniversary. DuSavage said that Kitsap Computing Seniors is a good place to start. “We know it’s hard to teach an 80-year-old who has never touched a computer in his life,” said DuSavage, 67. DuSavage became computer savvy while in the Navy for 20 years, earning a degree in computer science while serving. With the advancement of technology, using other devices such as cellphones and navigating the cable TV menu can be a challenge for those who do not have basic computer skills, he said. While some people like Hinrichs and his wife, a retired pediatrician and elementary school teacher, joined the club to learn basic

computing skills, others come to master a specific program or skill such as instant messaging, Facebook, or Internet navigation. For 69-year-old Diana Shadley, it was learning how to edit her digital photos. She attended a class at the end of January to learn how to use Paint.NET, a free software for digital photo editing. An avid nature photographer, Shadley wanted to learn how to remove some of the distracting objects that appear is many of her scenic digital photos. “I’m interested in taking telephone poles out,” she said. Don Brown, 78, has been part of the club since its incep-

tion. Having been exposed to computers while working at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in the mid-1980s, Brown said he wanted to expand from the basics. Like Shadley who wants to learn more about digital photography editing, Brown suggests people seek out something specific with computers they want to tackle, otherwise it may become overwhelming. “Find a project you want to do and learn what you have to do to do it,” he said. Besides the technical skills the club provides for seniors, Kitsap Computing Seniors also has a program, New Horizons, which refurbishes computers and donates

them to those in the community that are of low-income or disabled. New Horizons started in 2007 and the program is always accepting computer donations, said DuSavage. Recently, through New Horizons, the club was able to donate a computer and printer to a local seventh grade student who has lived in public housing neighborhoods her entire life. While the club continues to grow, so will many of its members’ technical expertise and desire to share it with others. Hinrichs said he purchased an iPad last year and plans on getting a smartphone soon. “KCS has really filled the gap,” he said.

Dreams do come true 24 hours in the happiest place on earth


I usually don’t make a big deal when a leap year comes around. It’s just another day in the year — an extra day of school or work. This year, however, I was going to take advantage of the extra day. I would spend 24 hours at Disneyland Park. Leap Day was to be the first time in park history that the amusement park would stay open for 24 hours straight. For someone who had never pulled an all-nighter — not even while in college cramming for final exams or writing papers — it seemed a little crazy to my family and some of my friends. But, Disneyland is supposed to be the happiest place on earth. Why wouldn’t I want to spend 24 hours riding roller coasters and hanging out with Mickey Mouse and his friends? Besides, it had been a few years since I paid a visit to the Anaheim theme park so I’d been itching to go back. My friend Phyllis — who I somehow coerced into going on the trip with me — and I flew into Orange County late in the evening Feb. 28. With about five hours of sleep, we arrived at the park at 5:30 a.m. Feb. 29. The park opened at 6 a.m. but because of the number of other Disneyland enthusiasts, by the time we entered through the gates it was 7 a.m. No one was complaining. Everyone was filled with anticipation for the day. “It’s nice being here. It’s an odd feeling,” a middle-aged man in line behind us said. Once inside the park, I was flooded with the feeling of excitement that I am always overcome by when I visit Disneyland. It’s similar to the feeling of seeing old friends. As Phyllis and I walked down Main Street, the park employees cheered everyone with high-fives and “good mornings.” I couldn’t stop smiling. This was Phyllis’ first visit to Disneyland and I wanted to be a great host. We hit all my favorite rides like Indiana Jones and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad first thing in the morning. Star Tours, the Star Wars ride in 3D, became one of her favorite rides quickly. A morning filming of an episode of the TV show “Modern Family” in the park was an added bonus. People walked around dressed in T-shirts, many of them a canvas

The sun begins to rise as people leave Disneyland at 6 a.m. March 1. Many took to the challenge of spending an entire 24 hours at the park. for a Disney character. It was a pleasant change from the rain-mixed-with snow weather I left behind in Kitsap. And, there were hardly any lines for the rides. Our longest wait time during the day was about 25 minutes, which is nothing compared to the one hour waits for popular rides in the summer months. Practically everything I said to Phyllis was an exclamation! Around 1:30 p.m., my friend Annie who goes to dental school at UCLA, met up with us at the park. We continued leisurely riding our favorite attractions. Little did we know that in 12 hours, it would be near-impossible to ride anything. By 5 p.m., the three of us were getting low on energy. We opted to hop aboard a sailing ship rather than go on another roller coaster. My mom texted me asking “if I was tired yet” and because my cellphone reception had been spotty all day, I could not respond. She probably thought I was having too much fun to respond. Finally after we ate dinner, I had a better outlook on the rest of the 24-hour adventure. I regained energy and momentum. I also felt better after overhearing multiple park staff say that the crowd would die down or be non-existent after 1 a.m. — that was when the last show would be. Phyllis, Annie and I envisioned being about to ride all the roller coasters over and over again without a wait. It would be like a free for all, we thought. As the evening progressed, the

After watching a 10 p.m. parade, we found ourselves trapped in a mob of people. These were frustrated, angry and tired people. Some of them were trying to leave the park and others make their way in. These were not the same people who happily waited in line to gain entrance into the park with Phyllis and I 11 hours earlier. Parents tried to strategically maneuver their strollers to move forward. Others blatantly elbowed and pushed people away to get through. I stood still. Phyllis had wiggled her way forward and Annie was close behind me. Over the intercom system, music started to play. It was the song, “One Jump Ahead,” from Disney’s “Aladdin,” which I thought was a very opportune time to play. In the movie, it’s a song Aladdin sings as he runs away from palace guards.

N o one else around me seemed to be w o u l d amused by the song selection — stand in our way. But an even darker side to most of them probably weren’t even listening. After several minutes, I Disneyland was born. Thousands of annual passholdwas able to escape the mass of people. Just like magic, the crowd had ers descended to the park in the wee hours — mainly teenagers and somehow dispersed. Even after this, I held my head college age-looking kids — and the high. Sure, I had to purchase a $50 park became more crowded than it sweatshirt to wear the rest of the was the entire day. I quickly felt like night and early morning because it I didn’t belong, even though I was got so cold. I may or may not have left probably not much older than most the tag on and returned it before we left the park. Nothing else however See DISNEY, A11

Dignitaries, family, community remember Park Ranger Johanson North Kitsap Herald

POULSBO — At one point or another, everyone had a smile on during State Park Ranger Ed Johanson’s memorial service March 2. Family members and colleagues talked of Johanson’s whimsical side, as well as his passion for his work at Kitsap area state parks. Johanson, 44, was killed Feb. 24 while driving home to Seabeck, when another vehicle swerved from the opposite lane and struck his private vehicle head-on. The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office investigated the crash. The driver of the other car was arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide. Drugs or alcohol are suspected to be involved, according to the sheriff’s office. The service was held at Gateway Fellowship, 18901 8th Ave. NE in Poulsbo March 2, opening with violin music by Park Ranger Anastasia Czebotar. Gov. Chris Gregoire, County Commissioner Rob Gelder, Poulsbo Mayor Becky Erickson and Parks Director Don Hoch joined more than 250 people at the service. Various people spoke about Johanson and his many roles in this life — Brother

Ed, Ranger Ed, Coach Ed, Uncle Eddie, Father Ed, Best Friend Ed. A slideshow of his life was accompanied by Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” and the Moody Blues’ “Nights in White Satin.” Johanson worked as a ranger for 20 years, serving at Kitsap Memorial State Park northwest of Poulsbo until his recent assignment to Kanaskat Palmer State Park in the Green River Gorge area. Hoch said simply, “We will miss Ed.” “Ed wanted people to love the parks the way he did, and get as much out of their park experience as possible. That’s passion for you,” Hoch said. Johanson was born Oct. 20, 1967 in Bremerton to Keith and Edna Johanson. His older brother Ray recounted Johanson’s booming voice, infectious smile and great sense of humor. Johanson loved The Monkees — “I picture him and Davy Jones having a jam session of ‘Daydream Believer’ right now,” Ray said — Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, but also John Muir, Teddy Roosevelt and John Wayne movies. “Ed’s boys remind me of me and Eddie,” Ray said. “These boys are Ed’s legacy,

and he raised them well.” Johanson’s son, Brandon, speaking with his brother Nicholas at his side, said it was appropriate for their father’s ashes to be placed in one of his “beloved ranger cookie jars” as his final resting place. “He’s provided us a foundation for which we will build our lives,” Brandon said. “Coach Dad was a positive role model in [our] life.” Brandon spoke of having the honor to know his father recently as a best friend. Johanson had high standards for his boys in education, sports, even board games, but all with a kind hand. Johanson was creating a “Ranger Room” in his home, a collection of mementos and honors from his career, which began as a park aide at Scenic Beach State Park. “I found three watches among his possessions, all of which did not tick. The frogs did not croak, the birds did not chirp. It was if Mother Nature herself was taking a moment of silence to reflect on this tremendous loss,” he said. Besides his more than 20 years in the park service, Johanson had been a baseball and soccer coach for many years. His team, the Rangers, wore their uniforms to the

Fellow Washington State Park Rangers salute Ranger Ed Johanson during memorial service March 2. Johanson was remembered by the community, local and state dignitaries service, and his assistant coach, Larry Holloway, spoke of Johanson’s overwhelming cheer and good sportsmanship. Many remembered his talent as an artist. Johanson received an associate’s degree in studio art from Olympic College and a bachelor’s in studio art from Western Washington University, in addition to attending Law Enforcement Academy at Skagit Valley College. He had been drawing cartoons of family, neighbors, fellow A CUT ABOVE park rangers and his soccer team for years, and recently rekindled his business aspirations360-479-4414 into Creations INK, 450 National • Bremerton His according toAve hisS.obituary. illustrations can be viewed on his website, 1x6-6’ Green Fir Johanson’s fiance, Leigh 1x6-6’ $ 99 Import Slant 4x4-8’ $ 59 KITSAP Treated Post

of the people around us. Swearing in conversation became commonplace and people casually smoked cigarettes while walking by, even though Disneyland has a designated smoking area. Once or twice I got a whiff of what smelled like marijuana. A group of Southern California college boys admitted to being drunk while waiting in line in front of us for a ride. It was a free for all. Reading some of the local papers the next day, I found out that new park tickets were not sold between the hours of about 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. because of overcrowding. While I did not approve of the attitudes and actions of some of my fellow park-goers, Phyllis tried to make me feel better by saying that everyone was at Disneyland to have fun and some just chose to do that in different ways. Phyllis and I said farewell to Annie at about 3:30 a.m. She had class later that day so she went back to the hotel to sleep. After forgoing a two-hour wait to ride Indiana Jones for a second time, Phyllis and I rode the Dumbo

ride and the King Arthur Carrousel with an approximate five minute wait for the two. Walking though the park around 5:15 a.m., in every hallway, nook and bench was a napping person. Everyone wanted to make it to the 6 a.m. finish line — some, like Phyllis, just needed a power nap. As we walked down Main Street for the last time, the park employees were out again giving high-fives along with comments like “You did it!” Sleeping Beauty’s castle looked pretty as the sky behind it began to turn from black to light blue. I couldn’t stop smiling. That feeling of being with my old friend had returned. The crowd of people that remained cheered as the clock struck 6. We had all survived, endured or celebrated 24 hours, or 1,440 minutes, at Disneyland. I rode 26 rides, some more than once, visited six other attractions like Mickey’s House, and saw one parade. As a long-distance runner, Phyllis compared the day-long event to running an ultra marathon. “I feel accomplished, but tired,” she said. “But I guess this is what accomplishment feels like.” Twenty-four hours later, I can confidently say that Disneyland continues to be the happiest place on earth. See you again soon, friend.

She said he called every morning to say “I love you” and “Have a great day.” “He was my knight in shining armor,” she said. “I think we can say Ed

Community points of distribution


The Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management wants to alert the public of the community point of distribution, or CPOD. A CPOD is where the public goes to pick up emergency supplies following a disaster. Local officials will establish a CPOD and announce the location through various media outlets. Community points of distribution are typically located in easily accessible areas, making it easy for the public to obtain supplies.

In the event of an emergency, supplies available at a CPOD include water, food, sanitary supplies, medicine, vaccines and other essential items. For more information visit

Military spouses get assistance Under a bill passed by the Legislature March 1, military spouses won’t have to reapply for a license — whether a dental assistant, land surveyor or professional in another field — when they return to Washington state. They may have their licenses suspended during their absences and reactivated when their family returns home. “This bill essentially allows military spouses to press ‘pause,’ then reactivate when they return to our state,” said Sen. Derek Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, who sponsored Senate Bill 6290. “It’s an important issue- two thirds of military personnel report that their spouses’ ability to continue in their chosen profession factors into their own ability to stay in the service.” Senate Bill 6290 passed the House and is now headed

The Kitsap County Bar Association voted two longtime Port Orchard lawyers as among the most capable candidates to fill two vacant seats on the Kitsap County Superior Court bench. Steve Dixon and Greg Wall placed first and third respectively in the Kitsap County Bar Associations informal Judicial Appointment Recommendation Poll for February. The informal poll was done in advance of Gov. Chris Gregoire’s upcoming appointments to the Kitsap County Superior Court. The seats were left vacant by the death of Theodore Spearman in January and Judge Russell Hartman stepping down at the end of this month.    Kitsap County lawyers cast 112 ballots in the poll, which asked participants to rank the top three of the 11 lawyers

vying for the judicial appointment. Dixon was given a weighted score of of 253; Wall 168. Kevin Hull, a senior deputy prosecutor at Kitsap County’s prosecuting office, finished second with a weighted score of 186. Dixon has been practicing law in Port Orchard since 1984. In 2004, he applied for a Superior Court seat that ultimately went to Judge Sally Olsen. He said more than anything else about scoring first in the poll, he’s happy knowing he garners the respect of his peers.  “I’m very, very gratified by the showing of respect I’ve received from the Kitsap County bar,” Dixon said.  The poll also asked lawyers to rate the lawyer as highly qualified, qualified or not qualified. Dixon was the only lawyer out of eleven to receive zero “not qualified” votes.    Dixon said he believes

Gregoire will interview two or three qualified applicants for each position, and make a final decision in March. No matter who is appointed, Dixon said, all eight of the county’s Superior Court Judges will have to run for a seat in the general election in March. Wall, a general practice lawyer who argued a case in front of the Supreme Court in 1991, was elected in November to the South Kitsap School Board. Having run unsuccessfully ran in for a Superior Court seat in 2008, Wall said he he maintains interest in a seat on the bench.  Wall also said the poll can be unreliable when predicting who is appointed. A full list of results from the poll is available  Like Dixon, Wall said he was happy to see a “vote of confidence” from his peers. He also expressed his respect for Dixon.

About 25 people are on a waiting list, O’Connor said. “The increase is very large,” O’Connor said. “It’s not unexpected. We won’t let it get unmanageable.” Some Poulsbo members have self-managed and turned away from the range on crowded days but the club hasn’t had to turn anyone away because of overcrowding, O’Connor said Monday. He added that to keep the lines safe, the club has added more range officers, tripling the number they have out on the weekends. O’Connor agreed that safety is a concern


Sheldon said his switch had nothing to do with political affiliation, and everything to do with representing his constituents and providing a sustainable budget for the state. “Obviously the $330 million payment forward that would go on next year’s biennium, that’s the big issue,” he said. “I consider it a gimmick, a trick, false accounting. I’m a business-person too and I see the benefit of revenues and expenses being equal.” Sen. Ed Murray (D-43rd, Seattle), chairman of the Senate Ways and Means Committee, said he thought that he was going to work with Senator Zarelli to put out a bi-partisan budget sim-

Local business man and veteran Shane McGraw is looking to start a movement in which the business community shows everyday support to veterans and active duty personnel in Kitsap County. The idea and pitch are led by his own example. On March 6, McGraw, and partners, booked an 800-seat theater at Olympic Cinemas in Bremerton. Showing Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax,” and opened up the seats to veterans, active duty for free. McGraw, a local loan officer, believes good business accompanies good acts. The entire Kitsap County community is propped up by the Navy’s presence and the jobs that surround it, he explained. The Navy contributes in less obvious ways to the success of Kitsap County as a place to live and something should be created to show appreciation and respect, he said. “We should show our appreciation,” McGraw said. “Wouldn’t it be cool if they were treated as a step above.” McGraw said that he hopes more business will join his “military appreciation movement.” Looking into his next show of respect to military and veteran families, McGraw said he was thinking about sponsoring a pajama bowl at an off-base bowling alley. Choosing the Lorax for the first appreciation night was simple enough. McGraw said he wanted to find something a family could enjoy together.

and that there is no question that there are some people shooting out in the woods and could be putting others in jeopardy. Carter said he has heard an increase in shooting in the woods near Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club’s range. “The part that really hurts us is the thought that so many people are looking for firearm safety education and a safe place to shoot,” he said. Potter, who competes in handgun competitions, said when the range was open, he would go and practice shooting about five days each week. Now, he is limited to going to where the competitions are held such as in Puyallup and Renton for shooting, but added that there is no training time available. “It definitely puts a kink in things,” Potter said. “Right now everyone is on hold.”

ilar to 2011. “They didn’t negotiate in good faith,” he said of his Republican counterparts, “and I’m deeply disappointed because I thought we had an agreement.” The senator showed reporters a text-message conversation from earlier in the week from a number he said belonged to Zarelli in which Zarelli said he had no plans to put out his own budget, “only continuing to refine the options provided up to this point,” Zarelli wrote. Zarelli said that he had been waiting for Murray to make an acceptable proposal, but it never came. “At least the Senate has done something this session [now]. At this point, we hadn’t done anything, we weren’t poised to do anything,” he said, referring to

the Democratic budget, for which Murray admitted he didn’t have the necessary 25 votes to pass. Camanino Island Senator Mary Margaret Haugen, who has served in the Senate since 1993, called the Republican tactic “deplorable,” saying it reminded her of the partisanship within the U.S. Congress. She said it virtually guaranteed that the Legislature would not have a budget by the March 8 deadline, forcing it into special session. Senator Don Benton (R-Vanacouver) then invoked what is known as the “Ninth Order of Business,” which allowed the Governor’s budget to be directly brought up for floor debate. News Bureau Reporter Maida Suljevic contributed to this story.


just continued to kick the can further and further down the road. Parking solutions that have come from the studies still only continue to punish the remaining Bremerton residents like myself who choose to go out of our way to support downtown businesses. The current policy also drives a rather large amount of potential patrons away. My good friend and fellow Bremerton resident Robin Henderson is currently serving on the city conveyed parking committee. As I discussed my situation with him, he indicated that he wants to hear about experiences like mine, collect them and pass them along to the rest of the committee and to the city council. If you have had such an experience

or want to share the fact that parking issues keep you from patronizing downtown businesses, then please feel free to post your stories and comments to the online version of this column at or email the Bremerton City Clerk directly at city., and be sure to reference that your submission is about city parking. Citizen’s experiences and perceptions about downtown parking do matter. City leadership tends to marginalize the number of residents that are negatively impacted by current parking rules and restrictions that cater to controlling commuter and shipyard worker parking but only end up disenfranchising and penalizing the very citizens and businesses that they should be protecting. I will be back next week from my NASCAR fun and look forward to hearing what all of you have to say.

Fill up your senses at John Denver tribute Jim Curry performs late singer’s songs in Bremerton BY ERIN JENNINGS Kitsap Week


11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

MARCH 31, 2012

he resemblance between the late John Denver and Jim Curry is uncanny — the voice, the blond hair, the wire-rimmed glasses.

Their wives even share similar names. Annie for John, Anne for Jim. “Anne’s name is another fun coincidence,” Curry said. “But it wasn’t a requirement.” Curry’s music career started out slowly. He plucked around on his guitar during junior high. In high school, he wrote the opening song for his senior class play. But it wasn’t until he started to sing publicly that people began to compare him to Denver. “Back then I didn’t have my hair like John Denver,” Curry said. “The resemblance was my voice.” Growing up in the 1970s, Denver’s music was a popu-

lar choice for Curry and his friends. He once had a backstage pass to meet Denver, but because of an inconsiderate girlfriend, Curry didn’t get to meet the famous singer/songwriter. “We only had one backstage pass and I told my girlfriend we could share it,” he recalled. “She went backstage at the beginning of the concert and never came back.” Curry was disappointed that he never met Denver — Denver died in a plane crash in 1997 — but little did he know one day he would make a living traveling the world performing Denver’s hits. After Denver’s death, Curry heard rumors that

CBS was making a made for-TV movie about the singer’s life. On a whim, he called CBS and was put in touch with the person coordinating the music for “Take Me Home, the John Denver

Story.” “I asked if he was looking for a [John Denver] sound alike, and he said ‘Yes,’ ” Curry said. Curry, who lives in Upland, Calif., couriered one of his CDs to the studios in

Burbank. Later that evening, CBS let him know it was interested in having him record for the movie. “It was amazing that all that happened in one day,” Curry said. Later that year, Curry found himself in a studio performing Denver’s hits for the movie. And that was the beginning of what would turn out to be Curry’s musical career.

Continued from page 2 full-time performer, Curry owned a sign company and worked for a trade show exhibit company. But after Sept. 11, 2001, the trade show industry suffered. Curry and his wife decided it was the right time to focus on music and they launched “Jim Curry and the John Denver Tribute Show.” Anne Curry performs alongside her husband on guitar and mandolin, and sings harmony. Curry doesn’t think of himself as an impersonator. “I’m not like Rich Little who can do many differ-

f you want to feel like a piece of fish thrown to a flock of hungry seagulls, simply walk down the ramp at Colman Dock in Seattle. Just make sure and bring a suitcase — a suitcase indicates to the “hungry” limo

drivers that you are in need of a ride. “Airport?” “Airport?” “Airport?” (Sounds remarkably similar to seagulls’ squawks.) Besides being aggressive and annoying, these drivers

are illegally trying to get your business. The more ruthless ones may even try to “help” you with your luggage in hopes you will follow them to their car. I think of myself as a strong-not-easily-intimidated type of person. But even

my adrenaline gets pumping after encountering this behavior as I make my way to the cabs, whose drivers are following the rules. So after recently experiencing this aggression on my last trip to the airport, I called Craig Leisy, manager

of the Consumer Affairs Unit for the City of Seattle. He was well aware of the illegal behavior. “If drivers are already knowingly breaking the law, it makes you wonder what other laws they are

ent voices,” he said. “I can’t change my voice to sound like somebody. I just happen to sound like somebody.” For 10 years, Curry has toured the world sharing Denver’s music with diehard fans, as well as exposing younger generations to Denver’s crisp-as-amountain-stream sound. “We try to present the music in a professional and accurate way as possible,” he said. His shows include Denver’s top hits such as “Thank God I’m a Country Boy,” “Rocky Mountain High” and “Grandma’s Feather Bed,” as well as some songs that may be known only to faithful Den-

ver fans. “We have really strong fans who followed John’'s career and they’ll ask for something so eclectic that no one else in the audience knows it,” Curry said. “I think it’s a challenge to me to see if I know it.” Denver wrote more than 200 songs and Curry tries to introduce the audience to the obscure ones — including the last song Denver wrote before he died, “Yellowstone Coming Home.” Although the majority of Denver’s hits were written in the 1970s, Curry believes the music is timeless and the message is universal. Many of Denver’s songs were about the environment and how to be a good

steward of the land; Denver wrote songs of love as well. Curry’s favorite song is “This Old Guitar” because the lyrics practically tell the story of his own life. His guitar played a pivotal part in many aspects of his relationships. Denver’s family members have seen Curry perform and have enjoyed witnessing the legacy of Denver’s music. Up until her death two years ago, Denver’s mother was an audience regular when Curry performed near her winter home in Nevada. “She was still very emotional about John’s passing and couldn’t bring herself to play his music at home, but always enjoyed the show,”

Curry said. For members of the audience at the upcoming performance in Bremerton, people should expect all the hits and a few surprises. Curry said people who weren’t huge Denver fans are often surprised at how

many songs they know and how much they enjoy the show. “The music makes you feel so good,” he said. It might be said the music fills up your senses — like a night in a forest.

Continued from page 3 breaking,” Leisy said. This could include not being properly insured or having a vehicle that doesn’t meet inspection. Leisy had good news though. Things should be noticeably changing at the ferry terminal, as well as other problem areas: cruise ship terminals, downtown hotels and train and bus stations. While taxi drivers can be hailed on the spot, limo drivers must have prearranged trips planned before legally picking up passengers. This means they must have an actual preplanned customer — someone who called ahead to arrange a ride from the ferry terminal to the airport. (The one exception to this is at

the airport where passengers can approach waiting limos.) But the driver is not allowed to approach people seeking business. Seattle has been trying to fight this problem for years, but its hands have been tied because in Washington, the limo industry is regulated by the state’s Department of Licensing. Until now. Senate Bill 5502, which took effect Jan. 1, amended Chapter 46.72A “Limousines” of the Revised Code of Washington. The revision allows the state to enter an agreement with the City of Seattle to conduct street enforcement, perform limo vehicle safety inspections and monitor limos’ insurance. Which means civil infractions can be handed out to improper drivers at the cost of hundreds dollars.

In a follow-up email, Leisy wrote, “Inspectors have issued several fines — most are $500 for soliciting passengers — at the Colman Dock ferry terminal and at Amtrak train station in the past few days.” Steve Salins, manager of limousine operations for Shuttle Express, said what has been happening is a classic case of a few bad apples spoiling the bunch. While there are legitimate and legal limo drivers on the streets of Seattle, the “rogue operators” cast a bad shadow on those who are properly conducting business. Salins told a story of brash behavior: A guest at a downtown hotel had arranged to have a limo take him to the airport and stood waiting outside a downtown hotel. A limo driver saw the guest waiting outside the hotel and pulled over and asked, “Waiting for a limo?” Not knowing this wasn’t the limo he summoned, the guest got into the car. Meanwhile, the proper

limo arrived at the hotel to learn his customer was no longer there. After hearing of the customer’s absence from the dispatched driver, Salins called the passenger’s cell phone and learned that he was already in route to the airport. “The irony in this is that often these prearranged trips are prepaid,” Salins said. As was the case in this story. Upon arrival at the airport, what happened was shocking: the driver held the passenger’s luggage hostage, demanding payment for the trip. “This puts a lot of pressure and guilt on the passenger,” Salins said. Not to mention it is downright uncomfortable and a bit scary. But hopefully with the new regulations in place, this type of behavior will cease. Salins and Leisy suggest that before hiring a limo, customers should ask if the car is properly licensed (a white sticker on the back


of the car, often on the bumper and about the size of a business card, indicates the car is licensed) and ask the driver for valid proof of insurance. Customers should also ask chauffeurs to see their license, which is issued either by King County or Alliance 20-20 and confirms the driver has been cleared of a criminal background check and driving record check. Make sure your out-oftown visitors are aware of this issue and help them make proper arrangements from the ferry to the airport. The taxis waiting at the curb are legally operating but are not allowed to leave their cars unattended. Passengers must walk up to them. (And FYI, taxi drivers go through comprehensive testing in order to obtain their taxi license, including a written exam, physical exam, oral language test and a four-day training course.) Or, call ahead and prearrange a ride with a repu-

table limo service. And if you happen to experience a “seagull incident” with rogue drivers, hold your head up high and don’t engage with them. While their squawks are loud, you have the power to walk on by. — Ask Erin is a feature of Kitsap Week. Have a question? Write Ask Erin, Kitsap Week, P.O. Box 278, Poulsbo 98370 or e-mail ejennings@

The foot is designed in such a way that it rolls and disperses any shock caused by walking or running. This is called pronation. Those who have feet that roll inward too much are over-pronators. This happens when the foot continues to roll when it should be pushing off, causing excessive movement of the foot and lower leg. This movement can cause pain to the foot, shin and knee. When walking, shoes will tilt inward when they come into contact with a flat surface. Knock-knees and flat feet contribute to over-pronation. Under-pronation is called supination. Under-pronators have feet that don’t roll enough after ground contact. Extra stretching of calves, hamstrings, and quads will allow for greater flexibility.

Younger generation takes over at Amity By Andy Perdue and Eric Degerman

Wine Press Northwest


t speaks volumes of Darcy Pendergrass that she’s worked for the iconic Myron Redford for more than a decade. Redford, owner and founding winemaker of Amity Vineyards, which he started in 1976, remains one of the most outspoken personalities in the Pacific Northwest wine industry. “ ‘Lively’ is a good description of him,” Pendergrass said with a chuckle. “I know his palate pretty well, and I do know what not to put in front of him. My goal is to make a wine that we can both agree on, and our palates are very different.” The synergy obviously works. Pendergrass took

over in 2008 as head winemaker of Amity Vineyards, and her release of Pinot Noir from the stellar 2009 vintage shows the skills that she’s gathered since being first hired for Redford’s tasting room in 2001. “I was moved pretty quickly from the tasting room into the lab and the winery once Myron found out that I had a degree in microbiology and was taking winemaking classes,” Pendergrass said. “The things that I’m really good at are different than what Myron is really strong with. It’s a good thing he loves to teach.” Redford learned winemaking in Seattle from the late Lloyd Woodburne, a dean at the University of Washington and co-founder of Associated Vintners,

which became Columbia Winery. In 1974, Redford purchased a vineyard that had been planted a few years earlier and launched his winery with the 1976 vintage. Pendergrass’ development allows Redford to spend more time at home and return to growing grapes. “I love our vineyards. I love our growers, and I love the fruit that I’m fortunate enough to source because of Myron and his history,” she said. “And Myron is very encouraging.” When Pendergrass left Florence, Ore., as a teen, she harbored dreams of becoming a brew master. We recently tasted through Amity’s newest wines. Look for them at your favorite merchant or

People helping pets...pets helping people.

Sampson is a 3 year old shorthaired grey cat

that looks alot like a Mandalay. He is a friendly & playful boy who came to us as a stray. He gets along ok with the other cats at the cattery. Sampson likes to toss around toys for himself so he can chase, pounce, and kill them. He’ll carry them around until he tosses them again. Her indoor cats let her know in no uncertain terms that they did not appreciate his presence so close. She asked if we’d find him a new home. No collar or chip and no one came looking for him. We’re unsure why no one has chosen this handsome boy as their own yet. Sampson will be at the Poulsbo Petco again trying to meet the family of his dreams.
