Lockdown drills paying off at schools

For many students, practicing a school lockdown is routine to a fire or earthquake drill. Recently, a few Kitsap County elementary schools had more than a lockdown drill. Last week, a South Kitsap elementary school locked down because there was a possible threat to the school in connection to an attempted Silverdale bank robbery. Last month, Armin Jahr Elementary School in Bremerton also locked down after a gun accidentally discharged while in a student’s backpack, and the bullet from the gun struck another classmate. School administrators say policies are kept in place for the safety of students and staff. A school lockdown is included and could take effect if there is a safety concern. Parents understand that sometimes situations occur that are beyond a school’s control and they do the best that they are able to. With last Thursday’s incident, a Bremerton woman attempted to rob a Silverdale bank and told Kitsap County sheriff ’s deputies that unknown men “made” her do it and that her son was in jeopardy. Although it was discovered that the woman had no bomb with her, she initially posed a bomb threat.

Dave Colombini, director of school and family support for the South Kitsap School District, said the school’s resource officer — who was contacted by the sheriff ’s office — told him that there was “police activity” at a bank and a student’s name — the woman’s son — was mentioned. The school that the boy attends, Mullenix Ridge in Port Orchard, went through a lockdown for about 15 minutes, Colombini said. “As a precaution, they were going to make sure the students were safe,” he said. Lockdown drills are practiced throughout the district’s schools and Colombini said that a school could go into lockdown for a variety of reasons. No one was injured during last Thursday’s incident, Colombini said. “This was very shortlived. We’re just grateful everyone was fine,” he added. Schools in the Central Kitsap School District also practice lockdown drills and a school could go into lockdown when there is a safety concern and students and staff need to remain isolated from an incident, said David Beil, spokesman for the school district. “During some years, the building may only experience a lockdown in a drill situation. In other years, a school may experience a lockdown in addition to a See lockdown, A8

Central Kitsap drafts budget options Some school programs saved by levy, but reductions still need to be made By KRISTIN OKINAKA

The Central Kitsap School District is searching for budget cuts that have the least negative effect on students. Following the passage of a supplemental levy, the district still faces a budget shortfall of about $1.5 million for the 2012-2013 school year, no decisions have been finalized on what programs or positions may see a reduction or cuts, but options have been drafted. Programs that may be reduced or cut include library, diversity, elementary band and orchestra and building technology coordinator, among others. The options could look different after the Legislature delivers a budget and it’s signed by the governor. Four draft budget options

have been created based on input received from staff and community members who attended a series of January budget forums and completed an online survey. They were discussed during a March 8 Central Kitsap School Board study session as well as presented to the community during a meeting last Thursday and a second that was scheduled for Wednesday. If the district moves forward with one of the current draft options, some programs would see reductions of anywhere from 0.27 percent to 66.67 percent of the total programs’ cost. Two programs, diversity and secondary building technology coordinator, could be completely cut based off of the draft options. “These options are only as good as you want them to be,” Superintendent Greg Lynch told school board members at the study session. While the supplemental levy that voters approved of in February will save portions of the library, technology, maintenance and grounds, custodial, elementary class size, co-curricular and learn-

ing specialist programs, reductions for next school year will need to occur. The levy will bring in $2 million for next school year. This is the seventh year in a row that the district faces making cuts, Lynch said. “We did take disproportionate cuts,” Lynch said of past years. “We did that to protect the classrooms.” Next school year’s reductions will “hopefully” not have a deep impact on programs and students, administrators said. All of the draft options incorporate feedback based on what parents, students and staff voiced as being priorities — or not — to keep. In one draft option, secondary interventions — programs included to help academically struggling students — would be reduced by $145,000, or 14.72 percent of the total program cost, and the program keeping elementary class sizes from increasing would be reduced by about $1.27 million, or about 6.4 percent of the total program cost. The diversity program, which costs $90,000 and is not funded by the state, would be cut. In the same option, all-day kindergarten and the mentoring program would not see any reductions. All-day kindergarten costs the district $730,000 and $530,000 of that is not funded by the state. The $50,000 mentoring program, where younger students are paired with an older student mentor, or secondary students are paired with an adult mentor, does not receive state dollars. David McVicker, the dis-

trict’s finance director, said that the last time the district didn’t have all-day kindergarten, about 80 students left the district to neighboring districts that did offer the program. “We want to do the minimal amount of harm as possible,” McVicker said. All the programs associated with option one were formally funded by the state but no longer receive state money. The district currently operates these programs through grants and other means. The second draft option integrates community and staff input based on their priorities as well as board criteria priority. Fifteen different programs or areas would be affected by this option. The largest hits would be to diversity with a reduction of 66.67 percent, secondary building technology coordinator at 50 percent and elementary band and orchestra at a 37.44 percent reduction. Programs that would see less of a reduction in the same draft option include special education with a reduction of 0.27 percent and secondary staffing with a reduction of 0.3 percent. In the third draft option, 14 programs or areas would see reductions. Many of them are the same programs included in the second option. In this draft option, online survey information and board criteria priority are incorporated. The diversity program would be cut and secondary building technology coordinator would be reduced by 50 percent. The elementary band and orchestra program

would see a reduction by 37.44 percent, just as in the second option. A 2.55 percent reduction for Jenne-Wright administration support that is included in both the second and third options would be the loss of one position, McVicker said. Some programs that were not included in the second option to be reduced but are in the third option include secondary Advanced Placement staffing being reduced by 32 percent, at risk program being reduced by 10 percent, secondary intervention being reduced by 2.3 percent and secondary counselor being reduced by 2.46 percent. Where a 5.47 percent reduction of the library program is included in the second option, there is no library reduction in the third option. The $30,000 reduction in the co-curricular program, which is 1.34 percent of the total program, includes sports or extracurricular activities. If a co-curricular reduction were to impact a sport, it would be toward a boys sport and not a girls team, said McVicker. One idea in reducing the costs of the co-curricular program is to turn junior high school sports into an intramural program while bumping up ninth graders to play on high school sports teams, said Lynch at last week’s community budget meeting. “It will save the district money,” he said. Others ways to go about reducing the cost of sports

and activities is through cutting back on purchasing equipment or providing student transportation, added McVicker. “People are going to be willing to do whatever it takes but at one point there is a breaking point,” board member Christy Cathcart said of the community’s willingness to keep programs through fundraising and other alternatives. In the fourth draft option, modifications are made to the reductions of the library, secondary building technology coordinator, elementary band and orchestra and diversity programs. The library program would see a reduction of 1.66 percent, which would be a cut to the clerical portion of the program, said McVicker. The secondary building technology coordinator program would be entirely eliminated and thus the responsibilities of that program would move to the library program, he added. Elementary band and orchestra would see a reduction of 50 percent and the diversity program a reduction of 55.56 percent in the fourth option. McVicker said currently eight of the 12 elementary schools have an orchestra and all the elementary schools have band. The school board will likely be presented options and a recommendation in regards to the budget and potential program reductions at its April 11 board meeting, according to McVicker.

More CK seniors meeting state math requirement New state test a contribution By KRISTIN OKINAKA

Last year, Conner Roberts felt like his 8thgrade math class was behind in the curriculum. There were areas on the state math exam that he didn’t learn about until after the test was taken. This year, the freshman at Klahowya Secondary School, feels on track to do well on the state test that he will take at the end of the school year. “Last year I struggled a little bit,” said Conner. “This year we’re prepared well.” The fact that last year Conner took the math Measurement of Student Progress exam — the state test for students in grades 3 to 8 — in April compared to taking the Algebra end-of-course exam — the state test typically for freshmen — in June, may play a role in his attitude. There is a 9 percent increase in the number of Central Kitsap School District’s high school seniors who have already fulfilled the state math requirement compared to the number the same time last year. Currently 83.8 percent of seniors have met the math requirement compared to last year’s 74.8 percent, according to infor-

mation presented at the March 14 Central Kitsap School Board meeting. Administrators say a contribution to the increase is due to the math EOCs, with this year being the first time those scores are accounted for. Seniors who have met the state reading and writing requirement are at 97.4 percent and 96.6 percent respectively. For the past three years, the numbers have hovered in that range for those subjects. “I’m impressed with the math. Obviously good things are happening, but what is that?” asked board member Mark Gaines. Franklyn MacKenzie, the district’s director of secondary education, said with the math EOC, students are taking the state exam after they have taken algebra and thus students are performing better. “It’s typical across the state,” MacKenzie said. “It’s the first year using EOC.” The math EOCs are given in the subject areas of algebra and geometry at the end of the school year. Only students who have taken those courses take the exam. The EOC was first given in spring 2011. Algebra 1 is a course on par for the ninth grade curriculum so most of the students in teacher, Wendy Kraft’s class at Klahowya, including Conner, are freshmen. She however has students

in the class that are in 8th and 11th grades, too. Kraft, who has been teaching math at the school since 1997, said the EOC is an improved indicator of a student’s performance because it tests knowledge based on the curriculum. The curriculum is based on state standards and the EOC tests those standards or concepts. “I think it’s better,” Kraft said of math EOCs. “It’s by course, not by grade level.” Not only is it better because the students taking it are those who have learned the specific material, the timing the test is administered is better because it’s at the end of the school year, added Kraft. Nathan Olson, spokesman for the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, said there is no information available on trends of the EOCs because scores from this school year’s exams would not be available until later in the year since students have not taken the test yet. Of students statewide who took the Algebra EOC last year, 64.3 percent met the standard. The state percentage of students who met the standard after taking the Geometry EOC is 73.5 percent. In the prior year, 41.7 percent of students in 10th grade and 51.6 percent in the 8th grade met the standard. The EOC exams are given to

students in grades 7 to 12 who are in those respective classes. “These are simply tests where you demonstrate what you know, instead of a comprehensive math test,” Olson said of EOC exams. Students in the class of 2012 can meet the state math assessment requirement by passing the EOC — or the former WASL or the High School Proficiency Exam — at least once. If this requirement is not fulfilled, students are able to instead earn two credits of math after 10th grade. The EOCs are replacing the HSPEs. Beginning with the class of 2015, students will have to pass two math EOC exams. If students do not pass the EOC the first time they take it, they have the opportunity to retake the exam. At Klahowya, there are several intervention opportunities for students struggling in math. For instance, Kraft had a “classwide intervention” earlier this week for all students to retake a quiz. She said she was offering

the retake to the entire class because a majority had not met the goal. “You have to have standards to know what you’re teaching. The targets help teachers,” Kraft said of the state standards that make up her math curriculum. Other interventions at the school include an academy period, which is a study hall-type session that all students attend four times a week. Struggling students are able to receive one-onone help from a teacher or another student who is thriving in the subject. There is also after school tutoring available, said Kraft. The math interventions at Klahowya

are not included in the secondary interventions program that could be reduced next school year due to potential district budget cuts. Klahowya’s programs come from its own school funding, said district spokesman, David Beil. Although many classes will be taking an EOC for the first time at the end of this school year, many students are not worried. For freshman Rachel Seidel, who is also in Kraft’s algebra class, testing is just part of school and students build up their math skills over the course of the year. “It’s kind of routine,” she said. “You learn and hope you do well.”

We’re taking the chance


If necessity is truly the mother of all invention, then experience is the father. Necessity and experience combined to create Veterans Life, our new monthly publication for the 38,000 veterans that call Kitsap County home. And, we mean the veterans of all seven uniformed services that comprise five generations of war time service – including the long years of the Cold War. The necessity comes from general lack of ability of the main stream press to focus on the true needs and issues facing America’s veterans – a large population. It happens simply because there are not that many veterans employed in the newspaper business to begin with. And, the truth of the matter is that non-veterans, no matter how motivated, cannot understand the plethora of complex issues, events, needs and concerns surrounding the veteran community. For the most part, newspapers and the at-large media parade veterans on their front pages twice a year – Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Here in Central Kitsap, for a day, we add the Armed Forces Day Parade route full of veterans and active duty. Much of our experience comes in the form of editor Greg Skinner, who served with several infantry regiments from 1987 to 1994 in Germany, the Middle East and stateside. Then, for 18 years worked his way through veteran issues and health and education benefits. The rest of the experience will come from our readers. In the pages of this issue, you’ll find Veterans Life, a monthly news and feature magazine that explores the “geographica” of veterans life in Kitsap County. Written for veterans and edited by a veteran, our mission is to build a monthly newsmagazine that you can count on for needed information on befits and veterans rights as well as the trends in local veteran issues and the general goings on in the community. This week, we’ve delivered it to everyone in the county because census data shows that the veterans are everywhere here. In the following months you’ll be able to get a copy of Veterans Life at more than 100 locations from Bainbridge Island to Port Orchard, see the locations list on page 14 of this week’s paper.

Harry Truman was a different kind of president. He probably made as many, or more, important decisions regarding our nation’s history as any of the other 32 presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House. The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence, Missouri. His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there. When he retired from office in 1952, his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an “allowance” and later a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year. After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no secret service following them. When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, “You don’t want me. You want the office of the president, and that doesn’t

belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale.” Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.” As president, he paid for all his own travel expenses and food. Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale, for example, Illinois. Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, “My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference.” Florence Meyer Bremerton

Newt’s effect For Rick Santorum, or anyone else for this matter, they believe that he could beat Mitt Romney only if Newt Gingrich withdraws from the race, is to indulge in mathematical fantasy. The latest delegate count shows Romney with 495, Santorum

252, Gingrich 131, and Ron Paul 48, yet the combined total of the three is 64 less than Romney’s. Starting after the Nevada primary, there was never an instance when the combined total delegates of these three ever exceeded Romney’s after each primary contest and the trend of the margins between candidates remained constant. Should Gingrich drop out of the race, each remaining candidate must garner the number of delegates to reach the 1,144 mark and expressed in percentage of the remaining delegates as follows: Romney, 649, or 48 percent; Santorum, 761, or 67 percent; and Paul, 1096, or 96 percent. It is highly improbable for Santorum to close this 19 percent gap with Romney because there is no guarantee that all of Gingrich delegates will choose Santorum over Romney and the remaining Northeastern states, bastion of moderate conservatism where Romney is believed to have strong support, have yet to have their primaries. Moreover, various polls show 73 to 80 percent of republicans believe that Romney will be the presidential nominee. So, even if Gingrich quits, Santorum has a 19 percent more difficulty than Romney in securing the nomination for president. Noel C. Sim Bremerton

Naval Hospital Bremerton Corpsman awarded Purple Heart Navy News Service

Hospital corpsmen assigned to Naval Hospital Bremerton’s Pediatric Clinic are honing their essential skills thanks to their leading petty officer with extensive credentials. Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class (Fleet Marine Force) Tony Carlton has accumulated amble experience from being deployed with the Marine Corps, as evidenced by receiving the Purple Heart, Navy and Marine Corps Commendation with Combat Distinguishing Device, and Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medals. Carlton has been training clinic corpsmen since arriving eight months ago to perform more than just basic medical procedures to prepare them when their turn comes to deploy. “I’ve done a couple classes on combat patient assessment because you never know when these guys will get pulled into a deployment. If they deploy with our Marine Corps they’ll be expected to know this,” said Carlton, noting that he also goes over the Fleet Marine Force manual as added preparation for his junior corpsmen. “You won’t know what you’re going to do [during a situation] unless you know it so well that it becomes an automatic motor function,” added Carlton, a Clintwood, Virginia native.

“He’s just a really good LPO. Sharing his experience and teaching those of us who haven’t been deployed yet has been really valuable in our overall training,” said Hospitalman Monica Navarro, of NHB’s Pediatric Clinic. Carlton received his Purple Heart medal for injuries sustained while assigned as Senior Line Corpsman for Weapons Company, 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 2, 1st Marine Division Forward operating in the southern Afghanistan Helmand Province area of Southern Musa Qu’lah in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. In the middle of the day on Jun. 19, 2010, a seven ton truck carrying seven Marines was moving at the company command post when it struck an improvised explosive device (IED). “I was sitting behind the wheel [of a truck], not having slept in a couple days. I was working with a gunnery sergeant when we see a truck coming over this hill. There was a corporal ground-guiding the truck and they didn’t know we weren’t doing that,” said Carlton, explaining that ground-guiding refers to a Marine in front of a vehicle within a area that has heavy foot traffic providing the driver with an extra pair of eyes to assist in maneuvering in that area.

“We went over yelling to get back in the vehicle and quit ground guiding. The Marines couldn’t hear us over the diesel motor and about this time we hear ‘boom.’ It was a huge IED. It took the front end off of the seven ton and blew the wheel off,” related Carlton, sustaining injuries along with all the Marines around the blast-site. According to the citation for his Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, Carlton went into action immediately after the explosion to triage the injured Marines and provide care to the most severely wounded. He stabilized them and enabled others to render aid. “Throughout this time his actions were consistent with a first class medical provider, invariably saving lives,” the citation read. The most serious injuries were urgent casualties with potential internal bleeding and blown pupils. There were also two more Marines diagnosed as priority medical evacuations with grade III concussions (The classic and the most severe form) and possible broken bones, and three other medical evacuations due to blast effects. “I guess at the time I didn’t realize I was as bad off as I was until my adrenalin started going down,” said Carlton, who sustained a grade III concussion from the blast. “I was able to do my job even though I was having difficulty concentrating because I

was running on autopilot.” Carlton attributes his first responder ability in that situation to his extensive training, which he continues to stress to his corpsmen. A Pediatric Clinic co-worker has even posted a slightly over-stated congratulatory note on Carlton’s deployment and mentioned that he had sustained multiple injuries. That was somewhat overblown. No pun intended. “I wasn’t blown up that many times. I was involved in several accidents, and there were explosions on the ground and inside the trucks. I’ve had several concussions due to a blast wave and my left ear is hard of hearing. But other than being knocked out or

knocked around I’m okay,” Carlton said. In addition to his heroic actions, as senior line corpsman, Carlton had the responsibility of ensuring all line corpsman were ready for operations. He organized and operated the forward Company Casualty Collection Point (CCP), and during combat operations, he established procedures and guidelines that ensured timely and accurate diagnosis and treatment of all patients arriving to the CCP. He treated 237 Marines during 10 days of sustained combat operations. He also conducted 133 Military Acute Concussion Exams (MACE) which were a result from

IEDs or indirect incoming fire. He properly categorized them, treated and after diagnosis, transferred them to the appropriate level of care. He also handled over 10 other Marines for typical sick-call ailments ranging from trench foot to heat exhaustion. He received his awards in August 2011. “I never thought I’d be awarded the Purple Heart,” said Carlton who originally enlisted to become a SEAL. “When I joined the Navy, I joined to be something more than ordinary. I never thought I’d be a Navy corpsman with the Marine Corps and see as much and do as much as I did.”

St. Patrick’s Day patrols net 9 DUI arrests in Kitsap

As part of a statewide emphasis patrol, local law enforcement agencies were specifically looking for drunk drivers on St. Patrick’s Day. Efforts were concentrated in the Poulsbo area and during the patrol, 184 contacts were made with drivers, which led to nine DUI arrests, according to a statement from Kitsap County Traffic Safety Task Force. Of the 184 drivers, 40 received a speeding ticket and there were four criminal arrests. Five of the nine drivers arrested for a DUI had a blood alcohol content reading of .08 or higher. The patrol emphasis that included the Washington State Patrol, Kitsap County

Sheriff’s Office and Bremerton, Poulsbo and Bainbridge Island police departments, was part of “Target Zero,” an overtime grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission to have more officers on the roads when the risk of drunk drivers is highest. Twenty people died in Kitsap County last year in relation to incidents on the roadway or highway from a variety of reasons. Target Zero’s vision is to reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries to zero by 2030 through education and enforcement. More information about Target Zero can be found at

Friday, March 23, 2012

A new bridge at Bucklin Hill Road in Silverdale is in the works but where the money for the estimated $13 million project will come from is the question. Kitsap C ounty Commissioners met with Kitsap County Public Works Wednesday to discuss where a $6 million gap could come from. Construction on the project is expected to begin in 2014 and more than 30 percent of the design work is complete. Public Works is intent

to pursue $4 million from regional money and $3 million from countywide allocations, according to a memorandum from Jonathon Brand, county engineer to County Commissioner Josh Brown. The $7 million leaves the county $6 million short on the $13 million project. The Bucklin Hill Estuary Enhancement and Bridge Construction Project is to raise the current bridge by 5 feet in order to improve the nearby Clear Creek estuary.

Two options are proposed to make up the difference for the Bucklin Hill project. One option is to set aside $4 million out of the existing Public Works Financial Fund Balance for the project. Any shortfall would be made up from money that has been set aside for other Silverdale road projects, according to the memorandum. This could mean that money slated for the Silverdale Way roundabout project could go toward the Bucklin Hill project. A $1.2 million grant from the state Transportation Improvement Board for the new roundabout could be moved to the Bucklin Hill project. Also, the Silverdale

Way Road improvement project from Byron Street to Anderson Hill Road, scheduled to begin construction in 2016 to widen Silverdale Way, could be delayed and the $3.05 million of local money from that project could be re-directed to the Bucklin Hill project. Other projects that could be delayed so money can be put forth to the Bucklin Hill bridge project include delaying the Bucklin Hill stormwater and bike and pedestrian project east of Tracyton Boulevard and the Myhre Road and Silverdale Way drop lane. Delaying these two projects would provide about $1.3 million toward the Bucklin Hill bridge project. The second option to makeup for the project’s $6 million shortfall is to apply for a Public Works Trust Fund Construction Loan. This is a “highly competitive” low interest loan available to cities, counties and special purpose districts throughout the state. As of the March 8 memo, Public Works wasn’t entirely sure of the application process because it will change for the 2014 program. At the December Central Kitsap Community Council meeting, Tina Nelson, senior program manager with Public Works, said that the Bucklin Hill bridge project would extend across Bucklin Hill Road between Blaine Avenue and Mickelberry Road. There would be four lanes on the bridge with a bike lane and sidewalk on both sides of the road. “We will be moving forward with final design of the project and hopefully opportunities for outside funding will improve as we get closer to shovel ready status,” the memo read.

Bomb threat when bank robber shuts down Silverdale Way By GREG SKINNER and KRISTIN OKINAKA

In the end, there was no bomb. But for more than an hour, employes of the Silverdale branch of KeyBank, the police responding and the gathered crowd thought there was. On March 15, Bremerton resident Manda Jo Hoem, 34, allegedly drove to the Silverdale Way bank branch, parked her silver Chevy and shortly after 2:30 p.m., entered the bank mangers office claiming to have a bomb. Though, nearly every employee and customer was unaware of the robbery under way, Hoem allegedly demanded $50,000. The Kitsap County Sher i f f ’s O f f ic e , Bremerton Police, SWAT and bomb squads and the FBI were all on the scene before the conclusion of the robbery attempt. With everyone out of the bank, including the manager, police began to work with Hoem. An hour-and-a-half would pass before police finally pushed Hoem to the ground and covered her with a police riot shield as she exited the bank to turn herself in. While the exact nature and construction of the fake bomb used in the ruse has not been released, police said exposed wires coming from Hoem’s clothing added to the verbal threat. Evidence collected at the scene included a $15 children’s toy called “bionic ear” from Spy Net. Charged with robbery in the first degree, Hoem was arraigned in Kitsap County District Court last week and held on $500,000 bail. Her next appearance is scheduled for March 29.


While responding to the call of a bank robbery, police were suprised to find the alleged robber still in the bank when

they arrived. Bank business looked to be going on as usual when Kitsap County sheriff ’s deputy Clinton Bergeron arrived. He reported asking a departing bank customer if a robbery was underway. “He said ‘no,’” Bergeron said. Bank employees also said that the bank was not being robbed when asked by police. According to police, bank employees said no robbery was underway, but that an “upset” woman was in an office with the bank’s manager. As police stood just outside the manager’s office and motioned for the manager to come out, she sat there. Bergeron said he mouthed the words “does she have a bomb?” “She mouthed back ‘yes,” he said. The bank robbery response changed and the bomb squad was called as the owners and patrons of Our Place Bar and grill next door were warned to evacuate and businesses across Silverdale Way were advised to keep clear of large plate glass windows for fear of blast debris. Silverdale Way was shutdown from Bucklin Hill Road to Linder Road and a bomb robot was deployed. During the robbery,

ners and smartphone scanners on the scene said that a woman walked into the bank with a bomb. Many on the street passed along a story that Hoem had walked into the bank and placed a bomb on an employee’s neck demanding money. At some point during the robbery, the mother of one, told the bank manager that she was being forced to rob them by four men, according to court documents. To ensure she did the job, the men were watching her son at his Port Orchard school on Mullinex Road. Hoem was to get $50,000 from the bank and give the money to the men during a meet up at the East Bremerton WalMart on Wheaton Way, according to court documents. In response, police ordered a lockdown at the Mullinex Ridge Elementary School in Port Orchard as soon as they learned the name of Hoem’s son. Shortly after, police released the school saying there was no threat. “We had no credible information about anyone being at the school that

would have caused abnormal alarm,” said deputy Ben Herrin. While at the school, police learned from the boy’s father that Hoem had mental problems and was taking medication. Following Hoem’s arrest, a bomb technician entered the bank and left several times before police began to slowly return the busy commercial corridor to normal. A group of pet shop employees at Naturally 4 Paws said that as police began to fill the strip mall parking lot authorities entered the store, caring AR-15 rifles and warned them to get away from the windows. “They were worried about shrapnel,” employee Matt Hornburg said From a safe room in the back of the pet store, Hornburg said he was able to find about what was going directly across the street by checking Facebook on his smartphone. Nino Bokuku, 37, said he got off work at the Olive Garden at 3 p.m. and traffic was backed up on Randall Way. He parked his car in the parking lot of Grocery Outlet, across the street from KeyBank, and was later told by a sheriff ’s deputy to move his car further away. “He told me the area needed to be cleared. It’s surprising to me that something like this would happen in the middle of the day,” Bokuku said. Nearby businesses evacuated or closed for the day. Sharon Turner, 59, who had intended to go shopping at Grocery Outlet thought that there was a car wreck that had caused all the traffic backup. “You never think nothing like this would happen,” she said. “I’ve lived here all my life.”


drill,” Beil said. “It is not typical that a school does a lockdown other than in a drill situation in a school year.” When Armin Jahr went into lockdown Feb. 22, Carol Cox’s two grandchildren who attend the school said they felt safe and that their teachers were in control of the situation. Cox has a grandson in second grade and a granddaughter in fourth grade at the school. A third-grade boy brought a handgun to school that accidentally discharged while in his backpack at the end of the school day. The bullet struck classmate Amina Kocer-Bowman, who has undergone many surgeries and is still in the hospital. Cox said that the school did the best they could have, although it was scary for some parents who did not know if their children were injured. “It would have been nice to notify parents, but it was at the end of the school day,” Cox said, adding that get-

ting communication out quickly at that time is difficult. During the lockdown, all the window blinds were put down, the lights were turned off and all the students went to the furthest corner of the room, Cox’s granddaughter said. “The staff did an excellent job in a difficult situation,” Cox said. “The kids knew what to do.” The day after the lockdown, Armin Jahr’s principal sent a letter out to all families explaining the reason for the lockdown as well as information that grief counselors were available for students, staff and families. Pat t y G l a s e r, Bremerton School District’s spokeswoman, said that nothing has changed in the district’s policies or procedures in response to the incident at Armin Jahr. Lockdown drills at the schools are practiced on a monthly basis, she said. “Those are systems you have in place to be proactive,” Glaser said. Bremerton schools have a zero tolerance for weapons at school — as well as in Central and South Kitsap — and the

rules are explained in the student handbook. Every year, students receive the handbook and have the rules explained to them. It is also available online at the district’s website. February’s situation at Armin Jahr could have been avoided had someone checked the student’s backpack before heading to school, Glaser said. “We are partners with the parents. We have a role with the children as do they,” she said. It’s not necessarily always a check for weapons, but making sure there is no day-old lunch in a child’s backpack or that a library book gets returned to school, Glaser said. Staci Rigby, who has a daughter in kindergarten at Armin Jahr, said things like an increase in police presence around the school is reassuring. From a community safety standpoint in general, more people do not walk alone or at night, she said. Could the school have done anything else to have prevented what happened that Wednesday afternoon at her daughter’s school? “You don’t see it coming. It just happens,” Rigby said.

Fencing instructor Tom Martin works with a group of students at this Port Orchard fencing studio Tuesday afternoon. The former professional swordsman teaches classes several days each week. Martin described the sport at “chess on your feet.”

Local fencing instructor passes on his love of the sport to students from Kitsap By CHRIS CHANCELLOR Senior Reporter

The genesis of his introduction to the sport is difficult to pinpoint. Tom Martin, who runs Kitsap Fencing Center in Port Orchard, said it might have started when he was a student in the early 1990s at Olympic College. As he navigated through the course catalog, he noticed a listing for fencing. An avid baseball and football fan, Martin was intrigued by the sport that is one of a quartet featured in every modern Olympic Games.  But the obscurity of the sport in the United States quickly became an issue. Martin signed up for the class each quarter he attended OC – and every time, the course was canceled because of insufficient registration.  Martin, now 38, was undaunted. When he transferred in 1993 to Central Washington University, where he studied English and anthropology, he again saw an opportunity to take up fencing. Registration at CWU was not a concern, but the sport’s novelty created challenges in Ellensburg, as well.   “My instructor at Central Washington University only took

a couple of classes himself,” Martin said. “I surpassed what the coach there had to offer.” He wanted more.   Through the fencing classes at CWU, Martin befriended Aaron Page, who also graduated from South Kitsap High School in 1991, and Kenny Nopens. The trio would cram themselves and their equipment into Page’s 1985 Buick Somerset Regal for tournaments throughout the Northwest — and the country. The driving time was divided, but the manual labor was not. Martin said the vehicle was in poor condition and would not start in idle. After setting the transmission in neutral, Martin said he pushed the Buick until it reached 11 mph and the driver cranked the engine.   Martin’s friends would wake him from sleep to do that at stoplights, where the engine occasionally would die, for the more than 1,900-mile drive from the hills of Ellensburg through the Great Plains en route to Chicago. On another trip to Bellingham, Parks said the tournament was delayed 30 minutes to allow the trio to arrive after the Buick repeatedly broke down.   Martin said the push toward

prominence continued as he became one of 18 students to qualify for the Summer National Championships. Martin and his peers had to pay their own way, but they fundraised enough to send about half of the qualifiers to that event. “Central Washington University didn’t really take us seriously the first year,” Martin said.   But, he said administrators noticed and provided a universityowned van and a stipend for gas the following year. The university’s program now is a club sport that is a member of the U.S. Fencing Association.  Martin continued with the sport after leaving CWU — he was certified to coach in 1996 by the USFA — but also was busy with work that ranged from general contracting to being a satellite technician.  “I decided the real world stinks,” Martin said. “If I’m going to sink, I’m going to do it myself.”  Enter Kitsap Fencing Center.   Martin, who continued to participate in the sport as an athlete while working, decided to translate his passion into a career. He started in September with a training and coaching space at the Port Orchard Armory before moving into a 1,300-square-foot facility at 2505 Mile Hill Drive where he teaches classes four days a week for both adults and youths. See Genesis, A10

When people hear about his profession, Martin said the first question usually involves chain-link fences, but he is confident that he can build his operation into a successful business.  “I’ve never seen a fencing program fail,” he said.   Martin said the biggest challenge is promotion. While he has spent most of his life in Kitsap County, his business is new — and unfamiliar.   ALL-ENCOMPASSING SPORT But he also views his sport as one that has an advantage over the mainstream ones. For example, a successful major-league hitter must possess the hand-eye coordination to make contact with a variety of pitches that break at different angles.   Fencing is different. Martin said he learned that more than a dozen years ago as he was preparing for the North American Cup. He was dismissive of an opponent that he foil fenced against before that competition — a man named Harold who was more than 70 years old. The match culminated in “the worst butt-kicking of my life.”  “Harold wasn’t quick, but

Friday, March 23, 2012

he was extremely accurate,” Martin said. “Strength has nothing to do with it.” That is one reason why the muscular Martin does not fit the mold of the prototypical fencer. He is about 6 feet tall and 215 pounds. The typical fencer is tall and lean. Martin said that garnered attention when he practiced with Page in Tacoma.   “One of the coaches comes over and says, ‘You’re a fencer? You look more like a cage fighter,’” he said.   Martin still lifts weights, which he acknowledges “makes you big and slow,” but feels that mental acuity has a stronger relation to success in his sport than agility.   “It’s like chess on your feet,” he said.   Page, who serves as a volunteer coach at Metro Tacoma Fencing Club, said Martin has the ability to make it feel more like checkers for newcomers, though.  “He’s got a very grounded instruction style,” he said. “He can break down moves and simplify them. He has a very keen eye on helping out his students. He doesn’t come across as condescending.”   There are three main types of fencing: foil, epee and saber. Martin competed professionally in the former two and those are the focus of his beginners’ class. Both

feature different types of blades and scoring, but Page feels foil is the better choice for newcomers. “Foil is the best starting point for fencing,” he said, citing the development of footwork, distance and point control. “You’re thinking on your feet and there’s a lot more strategy. It gives you the most well rounded skill set than starting with another weapon.”   Based on observations from his club and others, Martin estimates only 15 percent pick up the sport as a hobby. He said one of the biggest challenges is getting students, particularly adults, to realize it is not a scene out of “Pirates of the Caribbean.”   Instead, Martin focuses on basics with his beginners’ class, which meets for eight weeks. He focuses on footwork, developing proper mechanics and the sport’s roots. Martin frequently reads books to enrich his fencing knowledge.  “The history of the sport is just as interesting as the real game,” he said.   While the sport has evolved, one aspect that Martin and Page relish remains the same.   “It’s a great stress relief,” Page said. “You get points for hitting and have people cheering for you.”

Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2012 tests Navy security forces on threat response for installations and units across the nation and is the largest antiterrorism/force protection exercise in the nation.

By Jessica Ginet A Washington State Trooper was bitten while assisting another trooper in subduing a combative suspect in Kitsap County on Tuesday. According to Trooper Russel Q. Winger, the suspect was in custody for a hit and run collision. Troopers responded to the Gorst area on SR-3 south of Bremerton after a report of a three vehicle collision. Victims called WSP dispatchers to report the suspect fled the scene in a gold-colored van, east bound on SR-16 toward Tacoma. “His driving was erratic,” Winger said. “He hit a couple cars.” A Trooper located the suspect within minutes near Purdy. The suspect was cuffed and in the back of the patrol vehicle when he became increasingly combative. The 23-yearold man from Tacoma,

sures, periodic gate delays and increased traffic. Central Kitsap School District Superintendent Greg Lynch sent a letters to families who have children who ride school buses that make stops inside the base, saying buses may be affected by the drills. However, the Navy does not believe the CKSD school buses will be substantially delayed, stated the letter. Exercise Solid CurtainCitadel Shield 2012 kicked off with an “active shooter” force protection drill on Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story in Virginia.

who remains unidentified, was able to kick out the rear passenger door and window before troopers restrained him. As troopers were attempting to gain control of the suspect through the use of “total limb restraints,” the suspect leaned over and bit a trooper on the hand. The bite and resulting injury was enough to break the skin and draw blood. “The injury to his [the trooper’s] hand is fairly minor,” Winger said Wednesday. Complicating matters, however, was that the suspect boasted he had AIDS. Troopers believe the suspect was under the influence of drugs but were unable to complete any field sobriety tests due to his combative behavior. He was booked into the Kitsap County jail on charges of felony third degree assault on an officer, hit and run and no valid

driver’s license. “We’re not releasing the names of the suspect or the victim,” Winger said. “Not until the prosecutor decides what to do.” The injured trooper drove to St. Anthony’s Hospital, where he was treated and released.

When the owners of Uwajimaya Market wanted to relocate and enlarge an existing store in downtown Seattle, they turned to Bank of America. Since the 1950s, they’ve relied on us for financing to expand their operations, open new locations and grow their business. As a result, they’ve been able to better serve their customers, provide more jobs and strengthen their role as a focal point for the region’s diverse Asian community. Uwajimaya Market is another example of how we’re working to help small businesses grow and hire in the Puget Sound — and across the country. In 2011, we provided $222.5 million in new credit to small businesses in Washington — an increase of 28% from 2010. To learn more about what we’re doing to help strengthen the local economy, visit

Professor Gall was recently featured by Seattle’s City Arts Magazine as the Portland, Ore. representative of the National Steampunk Movement, along with the Dresden Dolls (Boston), Abney Park (Seattle) and Unwoman (San Francisco). Critical acclaim for the group’s first full length CD, “Intravenous Delusion,” has made Professor Gall a regional favorite, sharing the stage with seminational and national acts at the Folklife Festival in Seattle, Gearcon in Portland, Teslacon in Madison, Wis., and Steamcon in Bellevue. Professor Gall’s Drew Norman (vocals, banjo, guitar, percussion stomp box) brings his theatrical experience to the musical stage and is responsible for the initial musical and lyrical embellishments. His recent side roles include the husband in the stage and movie version of Sally Tomato’s “Toy Room” (2010, Severe Enterprises), a rock opera that won accolades from The Heart of England See GALL, Page 3

Girl Scouts of America celebrates 100 years of service BY RICHARD WALKER Kitsap Week


uring World War I and World War II, they helped the Allied forces by selling

defense bonds, growing victory gardens, and collecting waste fat and scrap iron. They welcomed people of color Juliette Gordon Low into their ... founder of the Girl ranks Scouts of America and were described by Martin Luther King Jr.

Emma Otis of Poulsbo tells Girl Scouts about the history of Camp St. Albans, during a visit in 2006. She was involved in the camp when it was established in 1935. Today, at age 110, she is America’s oldest Girl Scout. Otis family collection as “a force for desegregation.” They welcomed girls with physical challenges at a time when people with disabilities were excluded from many activities. They helped girls of all backgrounds develop skills that made them self-reliant and resourceful,

and encouraged them to prepare for roles as professional women and for active citizenship outside the home. Girl Scouts have always been tough cookies, pushing for social change in America since Juliette Gordon Low founded the organiza-

tion in 1912. “The main thing I got out of it were the friendships and experiences,” said Lynanne White, who is in her 30th year of Scouting — seven as a girl and 23 years as a leader. “The experience of camping See GIRL SCOUTS, Page 2

Girl Scouts

Continued from page 2 is not something I would have done with my family because they were not outdoorsy. Girl Scouts have opportunities to travel around the world.” Girl Scouts throughout Kitsap County are celebrating the organization’s 100th birthday this month. Girl Scouts of America’s centennial was March 12, but in recognition 2012 is being heralded as the Year of the Girl. Mayor Becky Erickson wrote a proclamation declaring 2012 as the Year of the Girl in Poulsbo. One hundred and fifty Scouts, including Troop 42621 in Central Kitsap, kicked off the centennial celebration at Silverdale SongFest, Feb. 26 in Kitsap Mall. On March 24, North Kitsap Girl Scouts (Service Unit 310) will host an invitation-only celebration at Farm Kitchen, 24309 Port Gamble Road NE, Poulsbo. “After the opening ceremony, we will have games from different decades, and there will also be displays of Girl Scouting through the decades where the girls will have a scavenger hunt looking for clues in the dis-

The Girl Scouts was becoming a multicultural organization when this photo was taken in 1918 in Central Park, New York. Girl Scouts of America plays,” said White, a leader of Service Unit 310. “And, of course, we will end with birthday cake.” If you’re a former Girl Scout and would like an invitation, call Debra at (425) 420-5967. By the way, the oldest Girl Scout is Emma Otis, 110, of Poulsbo. In 1935, she helped establish Camp St. Albans in Belfair — more than 400 acres of

woods surrounding peaceful Lake Devereaux. For up to 11 days, Girl Scouts enjoy backpacking, campfires, cookouts, horseback riding, and water sports.

‘Something for the girls of the world’

The first Girl Scout Troop was organized on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Ga. According to Girl Scouts of America, Low was a married socialite who spent

several years searching for something useful to do with her life. “Her search ended in 1911, when she met Sir Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides, and became interested in the new youth movement. Afterwards, she channeled all her considerable energies into the fledgling movement. “Less than a year later, she returned to the United States and made her historic telephone call to a friend (a distant cousin), saying, ‘I’ve got something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America, and all the world, and we’re going to start it tonight!” “On March 12, 1912, Juliette Low gathered 18 girls to register the first troop of American Girl Guides. Margaret “Daisy Doots” Gordon, her niece and namesake, was the first registered member. The name of the organization was changed to Girl Scouts the following year.” The group quickly began breaking racial and social bounds. The first troop for African American girls was founded in 1917; the first American Indian troop was formed in New York state in 1921; and the first troop for Mexican Americans

was formed in Houston, Texas, in 1922. Most Girl Scout units were originally segregated by race according to state and local laws, but by the 1950s, the Girl Scouts had begun significant national efforts to desegregate its camps, the first being Camp Shantituck in Kentucky in 1956. In 1969, a national Girl Scout initiative called Action 70 was created that aimed to eliminate racial prejudice. There are programs for girls in unusual situations that make it difficult for them to participate in the standard program. The Girl Scouts Beyond Bars program helps daughters of incarcerated mothers to connect with their mothers and to have the mothers participate in Girl Scout activities. Another program allows girls who are in detention centers to participate in Scouting. Other initiatives involve girls who live in rural areas, in public housing, and overseas. Today, Girl Scouts are known as much for public service and community projects as they are for those cookies. Monica Boyd, co-manager of Service Unit 312 in Central Kitsap, said her Scouts donate cookies to food banks, put together

and distribute Thanksgiving food baskets, buy toys for children at Christmas, help clean trails and assist at animal shelters and fish hatcheries. “They are very passionate about what they are doing,” she said. “They are all focused on things that are bigger than themselves.” Boyd has led the same group of girls since they were in second grade. They are now high school juniors. “It’s been an honor and pleasure to watch them grow over the years. They are strong and confident. They know themselves. It’s been really amazing to play a small part in that.” Many Girl Scouts have become successful leaders in numerous professional fields such as law, medicine, politics, journalism, and science. Famous American Girl Scouts include former U.S. Senator Elizabeth Dole and Dr. Kathryn Sullivan, the first American woman to walk in space. From the original 18 girls, Girl Scouts has grown to 3.7 million members and is the largest educational organization for girls in the world.

He is very friendly boy who gets along with the mellow cats he has come across at our Cattery and Adoption Center. We have no history on him with dogs or children. Since being with us he has shown himself to be a quiet boy who likes to find a spot in the sun and relax. He enjoyes playing with wandy & feathery toys. Sylvester likes to sit in the window at the Adoption Center and people watch. He also likes to chase bugs on the other side of the window. He’s a friendly boy who has been an indoor/outdoor cat previously. He enjoys the cushy warm beds inside alot. He will be hanging out at the Poulsbo Petco this week hoping to find a new family.

Gunkel Vineyard in the Columbia Gorge near the community of Maryhill is one of winemaker Rob Griffin’s favorite locations, and this superb Barbera is a great example of what the Gunkel family can provide, opening with aromas of black currants, black cherries, Marionberries, leather, mint and pomegranates. On the palate, it’s a hedonistic wine with big black cherry and ripe boysenberry flavors, backed with well-managed tannins and a late boost of acidity. n Barnard Griffin 2008 Lonesome Spring Ranch Vineyard Cotes de Rob, Columbia Valley, $25.

It is a wellconstructed wine, revealing hedonistic flavors of blackberries, black olives, black currants and black licorice. Fine-grained tannins allow zingy, juicy flavors to shine through the lengthy and memorable finish. n Barnard Griffin 2010 Syrah, Columbia Valley, $17. This young wine opens with luscious aromas of blackberries, plums and sweet oak, followed by wonderful flavors of dense black fruit, tobacco leaf, bright acidity and a long, plush finish. — Andy Perdue and Eric Degerman are the editors of Wine Press Northwest magazine.

Combined, the sisters are a formidable pair, and their parents could not be prouder that they have chosen this career path. “We never felt that we forced them in this direction,” Griffin said. “We always made it clear it was an opportunity that most people don’t have — to take a functioning family business and make it better.” He even envisions a day — long into the future — when he and Deborah, a glass artist with a studio near the tasting room, can retire to rocking chairs on the front porch and let the kids take over.

Morton’s neuroma is a thickening of nerve tissue in the toes. This enlarged nerve usually grows in the web between the third and fourth toes. The reason the nerve enlarges has not been determined. People with Morton’s neuroma often experience shooting pains that extend into the toe next to the neuroma. An x-ray should be taken to ensure there is not a fracture. The pain of neuroma becomes more severe with strenuous activity or when wearing shoes that are too tight in the toe area. Treatment of this condition usually starts with trying to decrease the pain in the area of growth. In most cases, initial treatment consists of padding and taping to disperse weight away from the neuroma. New patients welcome and seen on the same day. Early & late appointments available. Most insurances accepted.
