Still no answers about murder investigation by KATE WHITTLE

Paige, Rylan and Quinn Harkness prepare to walk their Boer meat goats Nacho and Nate Tuesday afternoon at their Hainsville mini-farm. The kids are raising the goats as part of a 4H project that will be shown at the county fair.

Kitsap County residents interest in raising goats increasing lately by KATE WHITTLE

It’s time for Shannon Harkness’ daughters to leash up their goats and take them for their afternoon walk. Paige, Rylan and Quinn Harkness pull the short round-bellied Nacho and Nate around the grassy pasture, as the boer meat goats open and close their mouths like fish and bleat. Nacho and Nate are destined for the 4H competition at the county fair in August, and eventually for someone’s plate, which doesn’t bother Harkness’ matter-of-fact daughters. “No, it doesn’t bother me,” 9-yearold Rylan Karnkess said.

Harkness leads the Washington State University Extension Kitsap County 4H group and works as an extension agent, giving advice to people learning how to garden and raise animals on small acreages. She’s seeing a surge in folks who are interested in being more self-sufficient. Goats are appealing for their meat, milk and cheese. “Many people are really driven by the economy. It’s like they woke up, in a sense, ‘What are we eating?’” Harkness said. WSU Extension’s upcoming Goats 101 class scheduled for April 28 has several registrants, some of whom are those 4H families looking to expand backyard farms. Alison Harper leads the Extension 4H group with Harkness. Harper’s children stable their 4H goats with the Harkness’ animals, making the two-acre farm a tumbling circus of

goats, children and dogs every afternoon. “We want to make sure our kids have a familiarity with agriculture,” Harper said. She’s seen her kids be surprisingly matter-of-fact about butchering and learning where their food comes from. Sometimes, what starts as a backyard hobby turns into a full-time business. Vicky McGarrity, a short woman who dresses simply in jeans and button-down shirts and keeps her silver, curly hair shoulder-length, started out milking a couple goats because she’s lactose intolerant and wanted to supply her own milk and cheese. McGarrity and her husband John laugh now that they had “absolutely no idea” what they were getting into when they decided to start Hansville See GOAT, A11

Bremerton police continued to offer few answers about the ongoing homicide investigations during a public meeting Tuesday night in Manette. The “person of interest” man pictured in a sketch distributed by police was identified and interviewed, repeated Bremerton Police Department Spokesman Lt. Peter Fisher. Police continue to not give details about where the person of interest lives, whether he was still involved in the investigation or if the community should remained concerned. Fisher listed the department’s efforts on the investigation, such as calling in the FBI and local law agencies in for help, reassigning two patrol officers as detectives and setting up a still-open tip line. The investigation is the department’s “main priority” as well as day-to-day law enforcement, Fisher said. “We’re following leads as they come,” Fisher said. Fisher mentioned the recent arrest of 18-year-old Jonathan Brent Hirschy, who police say on April 3 falsely reported that he’d been attacked by a knife-wielding stranger. Fisher didn’t have an update on Hirschy’s case. The Kitsap County Jail roster shows Hirschy remains in jail and had a court date scheduled for April 24. About five community members came to the Manette meeting, sponsored by Bremerton City Council District 3 Councilman Adam Brockus. John Thomas, a school bus driver, shrugged when asked what he thought of police efforts on the homicides. “They’re doing all they can,” Thomas said. “In this small town, they don’t have the staff to do everything.” Another community member, Robin Henderson, said he thought the murderer mostly likely had left town. “Whoever it is, is gone into a hole,” Henderson said. “But we need to stay vigilant.” See HOMELESS, A8

Sewer work will effect streets this summer By KEVAN MOORE

The City of Bremerton has approved a $2,356,617.83 bid to replace a 3,000-foot section of it’s crosstown sewer pipeline later this summer. The crosstown pipeline conveys all the sewage from East Bremerton and much of West Bremerton to the city’s treatment plant. City engineer Ned Leever said that the line is arguably the most important one in the city. In good a bit of good news for the cash strapped city, the bid came in at

about $1 million less than what was originally budgeted for the project. The work is expected to get underway in late June and run through July and August. The work will bring road closures and detours that will affect residents and commuters alike. The work will begin near the cemetery at 12th and Naval and then run along 11th Street between Naval and Montgomery. From there, new pipe will be installed along Montgomery, in front of Safeway, for about a block and a half. The 11th Street portion alone, is expected to bring a twomonth closure. “All of the traffic that would normally go down 11th Street and 6th Street will now go down 6th Street,” Leever said. “We’ll take them down to Warren Avenue where we will have a double left turn lane which is similar to what we have at 11th and Warren out to Warren Avenue Bridge to the north. It’s just that in reverse if you’re coming in from East Bremerton and you’re trying to get to Kitsap Way.” Leever said that the city will also do its best to accommodate traffic for Callow Avenue business. City staff has been notifying local residents about the anticipated

City seeks five improvement grants Projects include road work, contamination monitoring and more By KEVAN MOORE

The City of Bremerton will seek five grants worth more than $6 million to fund five different projects. The proposed projects include paving on Belfair Valley and Lake Flora roads, installation of traffic calming devices on Hanford Avenue, continuing remediation work at the former Chevron property, streetscape improvements on Washington Avenue and replacement of the city’s existing pedestrian signals. In all, the city will seek some $6,076,250 in grant money and only be on the hook for $568,750 in local matching funds. The first grant is a Federal Highway Administration grant for road preservation. The city will apply for $389,250 with a local match of $60,750 to do road work on the northern 4,100 feet of Belfair Valley Road and along Lake Flora Road. Grant money must be used for preservation rather than new construction or

reconstruction and city staff identified dig-outs of failing pavement segments and a two-inch overlay of the road surface as necessary improvements. The second request is for $15,000 through a Community Development Block Grant, with no matching funds required, for traffic calming on Hanford Avenue between Wheaton Way and Bledsoe Avenue. The money will be used for three or four calming devices (likely a combination of speed bumps and roadway narrowing). The complete scope of the project would be developed and coordinated with members of the neighborhood upon receipt of funding. The third application will be for a remedial action grant in the amount of $72,000 for ongoing work at the city’s former Chevron property. This funding requires a 10-percent local match of $8,000. In 2007, the city entered into an agreed order with the Washington State Department of Ecology for cleanup of the former Chevron

The city plans for five grants, one of which will bring street and sidewalk improvements to Washington Avenue in Bremerton the future. property in Evergreen Rotary Park. The cleanup construction was completed in two phases, the initial phase was done in 2009 and consisted of a chemical oxidizing reagent in the north half of the site and excavation and removal of small contamination “hot spots” in the south half of the site. The second phase was performed in 2011 and and consisted of additional oxidizing of hot spots. “The chemical injection approach was selected since the

mass excavation alternative for the entire site was very expensive ($5.7 million) and was only eligible for a 75-percent grant, compared to the selected alternative ($1.1 million) which was grant funded at 90 percent,” a city staff report states. Officials say that the injected chemicals will continue to reduce contamination at the site and desired levels could be achieved within five years. In the meantime, the city hopes to use a $72,000 grant for two semiannual groundwater sampling events in the first

year of the ongoing monitoring. Finally, the city’s fourth and fifth grant applications will go the Washington State Department of Transportation’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Program. One grant is for streetscape improvements on Washington Avenue and the other is for the replacement of pedestrian signals and audio-tactile buttons. The streetscape project would make street and sidewalk improvements on Washington Avenue and 11th Street from 400 Condominiums to Pacific Avenue. “The project would be constructed in conjunction with the Washington Avenue Beachmain replacement project, which would reduce construction impacts to the community, and allow a portion of the utility project to be shown as a match to the grant,” states a city staff report. City staff estimate that the streetscape improvements could cost $4.5 million. The project to replace the city’s pedestrian signals with new signals that include count-downs and audio-tactile buttons would cost $600,000 with no local matching funds proposed.

Safety campaign IN OUR OPINION

As spring builds into warmer, longer and dryer days, the peak of cycling season is fast approaching and another year of life-endangering experiences await commuters and touring cyclists throughout Kitsap County. Daily, cyclists using county roads are threatened and assaulted by drivers who mistakenly believe that bikes have no place on the road – entirely untrue. Most of the dangerous roads are under the jurisdiction of the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. They are charged with the protection of cyclists’ rights to use the roads and to ride in that lane without an assault on their person by a vehicle, fist, bottle, shoe, fast-food bag, mirror or bumper. Yet, the department shows little understanding of the constant threat on the roads or how often near-death interactions occur. The sheriff’s office does not track or record incidents between drivers and cyclists. We suggest that they begin. There is a cost to the county beyond local complaints by “liberal health nuts.” As a gateway to all tourist points north, west, and south, many of which are cycle destinations, the county passes up on cycle tourist dollars when the talk across the Western Washington cycling community is to skip throug Kitsap County because its roads have drivers that will charge at bike riders with cars or hit them in an attempt to force them from the lane and off the road. When police are charged by a car or threatened by a driver, many officers have shot drivers. Beautiful bike rides along water routes such as Traction Boulevard and Illahee Road are punctuated daily with local drivers accosting cyclists for using a lane, which they have every legal right to use. We suggest that the sheriff’s department petition the Lodging Tax Advisory Committies across the county for funds to run an in-county public awareness campaign that impresses state driving laws upon troubled local drivers that cyclists’ have an enforceable right to use a lane on public roads everywhere anytime everyday.

No takers on Tracyton, Seabeck elementary school buildings by KATE WHITTLE kwhittle@soundpublishing.COM

Five years after closing the Tracyton and Seabeck elementary school buildings, the Central Kitsap School District is still seeking takers to lease the spaces. For now, the district plans to sit on the facilities. “If you know anybody who needs an elementary building, let me know,” joked David McVicker, the district’s director of

business and operations. The district closed the elementary schools in the summer of 2007, and hasn’t received any offers since sending out requests for proposals in 2008. McVicker said the district most likely won’t sell the facilities, because they qualify for matching funds from the state if the school ever decides to renovate. He said the buildings, both of which are more than 50 years old, need roughly $6

million in substantial improvements and asbestos removal if they ever change hands. Tracyton Elementary was built in 1944. The district is also forming a long-term facilities plan, and the campuses could prove useful, McVicker said. The Discovery Depot Montessori preschool rents a trailer on the Tracyton site, which provides up to $1,600 of revenue each month and helps ward away vandals, McVicker said. School board member Eric Greene, whose district includes Seabeck, said he hopes the district has a “big conversation” about demographics and the real needs over the next 10 years. “For instance, do we have enough or too many elementaries?” he said. A local realtor, Shane Ison, owner of Ison Realty,

leasable manufacturing, retail and office space is available right now.” Ison said he doesn’t understand why the district doesn’t sell the prop-

Silverdale man critical after police chase by KATE WHITTLE

A 19-year-old Silverdale man is in Tacoma General Hospital with critical injuries after his car rolled following a police chase, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Office. The man was in “critical condition” as of Wednesday, according to Tacoma General Hospital Spokeswoman Marce Edwards. According to the sheriff ’s office, a deputy saw

the driver of a Toyota Camry run a red light at Northwest Bucklin Hill Road and Silverdale Way Northwest. The deputy followed the Camry and attempted to pull it over. After the unidentified driver failed to stop, a chase ensued. Police have not released the teenager’s name and no charges have yet been filed. Kitsap County Sheriff Deputy and spokesperson Scott Wilson said sheriff ’s office policy is to pursue suspects in the case of potential felonies, like

hit and runs that cause injury. Wilson said the sheriff ’s office plans to arrest the man when he is released from the hospital. The driver was partially ejected from the car when the Camry lost control and went off the Anderson Hill Road at a curve. The man was apparently intoxicated, not wearing a seatbelt and driving a 1994 Toyota Camry recklessly at high speeds, according to deputies, and responding officers and medics smelled alcohol, Wilson

said. “He’s going to be a hurt puppy for a long time,” said Wilson. Deputies think he was also involved in a hit and run earlier the same night. Shortly after midnight, Washington State Patrol officers responded to a report of a hit and run on Highway 3 near Trigger Avenue.

A motorcyclist was knocked off his cycle after being hit from behind by a car, but wasn’t seriously hurt thanks to his helmet and safety gear, Wilson said. Forensic analysis of the car and debris from the hit and run location is ongoing, but officers say the Camry driver was involved.

Evidence found at the scene and the motorcyclist’s description of the vehicle match the Camry, said Russ Winger, Washington State Patrol spokesman. After hearing the hit and run report on the scanner, sheriff ’s deputies were on the alert for a reckless driver, Wilson said. “It was a priority in everyone’s mind, and here comes this guy barreling along,” Wilson said.

Bremerton utility rate study moves ahead Consultant to develop three plans By KEVAN MOORE

The City of Bremerton is moving forward with plans to conduct a utility rate study. The city has budgeted $100,000 to conduct the study and is likely to select the FCS Group, a consulting firm, to evaluate existing water, sewer and stormwater rate

structures and provide recommendations for future rates. The city’s last utilities rate study was performed in 2005. In recent months, the Bremerton City Council, in the face of a $2 million budget shortfall, voted to raises taxes on both the wastewater and stormwater utilities by 5 percent to funnel some of the money in the flush utility funds into accounts to pay for city streets, which the council said was a top priority and they had no

Prosecutor to decide on vehicular homicide charge By KATE WHITTLE

A 23-year-old Seabeck man died in a suspected drunk driving crash early Sunday morning. The driver was initially

charged with vehicular homicide and booked into Kitsap County Jail, but the prosecutor’s office chose not to file that charge and he was released April 23, said

other way to fund. Bremer ton Cit y Councilmember Roy Runyon, at the time, said that stormwater and wastewater utility ratepayers would not necessarily see a rate increase as a result of the additional taxes levied on the “enterprise funds,” which he described as “healthy.” Combined, the water utilities were expected to have $9 million in reserves at the end of 2012. As of now, about $20 of every $100 paid in water utilities, by city residents

and businesses, is funneled into the Bremerton Department of Public Works to pay for streets. A final contract for the cost to perform the new rate study is expected to be finalized by May 2 and will not exceed the budgeted amount, according to the city. “The objective of the Utilities Rate Study is to adequately fund utility operations, maintenance, capital costs, and bonded debt while minimizing rates to the greatest degree possible,” a city

Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Of f ice Spokesma n Deputy Scott Wilson. After toxicology reports come back on the driver’s blood alcohol level, the prosecutor’s office will decide whether to return to the previous charges, Wilson said. The driver allegedly missed a curve in the road and lost control. The Volkswagen hit a utility pole on the passenger side, then several trees, police said.

Excessive speed and alcohol were likely factors, according to the incident report released by the Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Office. Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Deputies found William C. Bumbalough Jr. dead at the scene of the crash in the 6000 block of Northwest Anderson Hill Road. The driver was treated at Harrison Medical Center for injuries.

staff report states. “The study will be based on a comprehensive review of Bremerton’s funds and budgets, industry benchmarks, comprehensive utility plans, customer classes, current usage data, and future planned growth in each utility service area.” The FCS Group is expected to present three rate structure alternatives and phasing strategies. The consultant will also be expected to prepare a communications plan with recommenda-

tions “to ensure effective rate payer engagement.” Stakeholders are defined as elected officials, a steering committee, rate payers, businesses, service area residents and city employees. The FCS Group will, “Provide methods for communicating the value of utility services and utility costs which could include layout of the utility bill, and messaging for brochures, website, emails, news releases and public meetings.”

Pantsless mischief reported on 4/20 Bremerton City Police responded the afternoon of April 20 to a report that a woman was “yelling and taking off her pants” in the Ivy Green Cemetery at 13th Street and Olympic Avenue. A caller said the woman was running around the cemetery and hiding behind gravestones.

The woman was wearing pants by the time an officer found her. The woman said she was “just visiting her homeboy” according to the police report, and left the area without incident. The report describes her as a “known mental health patient.”

City’s public new works director to leave unexpectedly By KEVAN MOORE

Bremerton’s new public works director will be Bremerton’s former public works director on June 1. Katy Allen, who took over public works in late December, announced last week that she will leaving at the end of May to become the City Administrator for Liberty Lake. Allen has lived in the Eastern Washington town for 30 years with her husband, Randy, who works as a school principal there. Her longtime friend Steve Peterson was recently elected mayor and asked her to throw her name in the ring for a newly created city manager position. Allen said she wasn’t aware of the likelihood of a job closer to home when she took over public

works in Bremerton. Allen said the decision to leave Bremerton after just six short months was “more of personal decision, in many ways, than it was a professional one.” At one point in her career, Allen spent several years commuting to San Jose, California, and the new job will allow her to finally have a more normal commute. In her brief tenure with the city, Allen highlighted her ongoing efforts to create a new business plan for the department and a reorganization she says better serves citizens and customers, as her proudest accomplishments. Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent said that Allen’s early departure is bitter sweet. “In her all too brief leadership as Public Works Director for the City of Bremerton Katy has re-

structured several areas of the department,” Lent said. “She has opened up the work area at the Oyster Bay facility, dispersed the work responsibilities after three retirements and has upgraded utility billing by instilling a stronger customer service base separate from accounting duties.” Lent also credited Allen with getting a utility rate study scoped out and sent to bid. That study should be completed and presented to Council by October to be included in the 2013 budget. Lent also appointed Allen to work with Lorax, LLC to complete the streetscape, utility undergrounding and sidewalk improvements on Fourth Street. Allen said that the city hopes to have her replacement hired by the time she leaves.

Bremerton Public Works Director Katy Allen is moving on after four months on the job. Allen says a previously unexpected job offer came from a friend in Liberty Lake.

Suspected sex offender extradited Detectives from the Washington State Patrol’s Missing and Exploited Children’s Task Force (MECTF) returned from Nebraska Fri., April 20, after extraditing a suspect in a child pornography case that originated in Port Orchard. Kevin T. Morrissey, 55, was booked into the Kitsap County Jail and is expected to face multiple charges of possession and distribution of child sex images. A two-year-long investigation involving detectives from MECTF and the Department of Homeland Security immigrations and customs enforcement concluded with a search warrant being served on the suspect’s Port Orchard residence in Jan. 2010. Detectives recovered thousands of child sex images and videos and the suspect was charged by the Kitsap County prosecutor’s office with possession of depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct. The suspect failed to appear and a $100,000 warrant was issued for his arrest. The suspect was arrested on Jan. 12 near Fremont, Nebraska. Following a 28-minute chase, the suspect began stabbing himself in the neck and leg, police said.

Sally’s Camp Two closes early this year Kettle Corn sales likely won’t be enough to keep indoor tent camp open for full run this year By KEVAN MOORE

The Salvation Army announced last week that Sally’s Camp Two will be closing its doors on May 7 instead of run-

ning through the month of June as planned. Major Jim Baker, who directs the Sally’s Camp project, said this year’s indoor tent camp has been running at a deficit

and officials have already tapped into reserves that had been set aside for June. Last year, the first camp ran from February to June, but Baker said that a lot of the Salvation’s Army general fund dollars were used to support the program. “It costs about $15,000 to $16,000 a month to operate, as it is a 24/7 shelter with paid staff,”

Whooping cough case count tops 1,000 By Jessica Ginet

The Washington State Department of Health released figures on the state’s whooping cough (Pertussis) epidemic Tuesday. The state said a total of 1,008 cases were confirmed as of April 21, which is more than were seen in all of 2011. This year’s outbreak is the highest number of cases since 2005 when 1,026 cases were reported. In Kitsap County, 28 cases of Pertussis have been reported this year. Cris Craig, public information officer for the Kitsap Public Health District, said, “Those are reported cases. The reporting rate is rather low.” Craig reported that providers are mandated to report Pertussis to their local health district and are monitoring the Pertussis cases in the community in partnership with medical providers. According to the Washington State Department of Health, the state is on track to reach more than 3,000 cases of Pertussis for the year; levels that haven’t been since in more than six decades. Local pediatrician Dr. Michael Boyer, who practices at the Kitsap Children’s Clinic, has been a provider for 35 years. When asked about the Pertussis cases he’s seen, he said, “I have not seen one case since 1977.” However, he acknowledged that he has had patients who have been exposed to Pertussis. “My partner tested two patients who came in with coughs. Those tests came out negative. I have not tested anyone yet,” Boyer said before cautioning that people can have the illness and pass it along without knowing it. The biggest complication to infants is pneumonia, he said. The Kitsap Public Health District in Bremerton said symptoms include cold-like

symptoms with long and severe coughing spells. Fever is rare. It can be deadly for infants and the best protection is vaccination. However, protection from childhood Pertussis vaccination wears off over time, so individuals need vaccination boosters, called Tdap, to improve their protection. Boyer said, “As you get older, even if you have been vaccinated, your immunity begins to wane.” Boyer called these a carrier population. “Hospitals encourage and highly recommend that new moms get a tetanus booster before they leave the hospital.” According to the Kitsap Public Health District, Pertussis is a cyclical disease. It is common to see an increase in the number of cases every three to five years. In Kitsap County, while infants have the highest rate of illness across the states, young individuals from one to 18 years of age account for 80 percent of cases in Kitsap. Nobody in Kitsap County has been hospitalized or died due to Pertussis. Bainbridge Island has the highest number of reported cases. Nine individuals have been confirmed with Pertussis, followed by six in Bremerton. While the Washington State Department of Health, in a news release, said many cases are being reported in school age children, requests for  specific numbers of reported cases from  the Central Kitsap School District’s health services department were  not returned  as of press time. The Washington Department of Health updates the number of reported cases every Tuesday afternoon. More information is available on their website, at www.doh.  The Kitsap Public Health District encourages people to see their health care provider if a cough is severe or lasts longer than two weeks. For help finding a provider, call the Family Health Hotline at 1-800-3222588.

Baker noted. The Salvation Army runs the shelter and Kitsap Community Resources helps families find permanent housing. “We’ve served 25 families since Dec. 23 and 15 of those families have found permanent housing,” Baker said. “We do the shelter and the [KCR] screening, permanent placement and overall case management.” Baker said that six families were living at the shelter last week when the decision to shut it down

early was announced. He said that the prognosis for those families having a safe place to go is fairly good “given the success rate of KCR being able to place families.” “It all depends on the families and weather they’re willing to do their part,” he said. Baker said that the Salvation Army sold

kettle corn in November and December and has started more sales to help support the Sally’s Camp program. “We’ve got to rev it up and that will take time,” Baker said, noting that the sales aren’t likely to be enough to keep this year’s camp open as long as planned.

McGarrity’s favorite, Melody, isn’t done with her milking until she gets a hug.

“They’re really sweet animals, they give a lot of love,” McGarrity said. For aspiring goat farmers, McGarrity says to make sure to get two goats, because the herd animals will get lonely otherwise, and to make

sure to have a secure, electrified fence. “Be ready for everything before you get the goat,” she said. Tapping into the local farming community and doing some Google searches is a

great resource for help, and McGarrity promises that goat people are a fun bunch. More information on agriculture and WSU Extension can be found at

Bill taxes cheap cigarettes Low income smokers to feel the brunt By Brett Cihon

A new cigarette tax awaits the signature of Washington state Governor Chris Gregoire that could sound the death knell for a few local businesses once signed into law. House Bill 2565, a bill taxing establishments that operate roll-yourown cigarette machines, passed through the State Legislature in the 2012 legislative session. The bill requires owners of bulk cigarette rolling machines to purchase manufacturing stamps. The stamps will effectively increase the cost of 200 cigarettes by $20.25, said Casey Kroesser. Kroesser owns DIY Tobacco in downtown Port Orchard and two other stores in Silverdale and Bremerton. Currently, a carton of smokes rolled through one of the large brown and black machines at stores costs $32, about 50 percent less expensive

than a brand-name carton from a convenience store or gas station. Assuming the bill is signed, the cost of 200 rollyou-own cigarettes from a machine will raise to nearly the price of the brand names, Kroesser said. “We’ll still have savings,” she said. “But it puts us right even with the completes.” The problem with only marginal savings from her stores, she said, is that she doesn’t know how many of her customers will continue to wait in front of her roll-your-own machine. With savings of only $9.75 a carton, she’s afraid her customers will choose convenience over price, putting her three stores and 12 employees at risk. Kroesser said her store was unfairly targeted for taxation. The cigarettes are rolled, she argued. She is not a manufacturer who should purchase manufacturing stamps meant for Big Tobacco. Port Orchard Resident Bill Cramer visits DIY Tobacco a couple of times a month. He goes to the store to save money. While the tax hike won’t drive him away, he said, it will

“They’ll tax us out of existence,” – Casey Kroesser month. The government loves to find a way to tax lower income individuals, he said. Instead of looking within bureaucracy and eliminating some higher up government positions, he said the government finds various ways to tax the legislature. A shipyard worker, Gars said it’s blue collar guys like himself that see the brunt of taxation. “I know it’s a bad habit,” he said. “But they don’t make it cheap to quit, either.” Senator Karen Keiser, D-Kent, co-sponsored the corresponding senate bill. The chair of the Health and Long-Term Care committee, Keiser understood that a heavy tax could put local establishment out

of business, but told the Independent in February that stopping the proliferation of tobacco was more important than local businesses that operate the machines. “I’m sorry if they’ve built an entire business solely around a product that is an addictive, health-harming product,” she said. “That was their choice.” Both Kroesser and Gars agree that taxation won’t stop at the roll-your-own store. “They’ll tax us out of existence,” she said. “Then they will turn to anything else they can tax.” For now, Kroesser will focus on how to keep her store in business once the tax is levied. She will consider moving away from the bulk rolling machines and more towards personalized, smaller products. She holds out hopes that loyal customers will keep her in business. But she doesn’t hold out much hope. “When you look at busy people nowadays who can almost pay the same price for a carton as a roll-yourown, it’s not hard to find out what people are going to do,” she said.

Keyport Commander receives award By Jessica Ginet

Comdr. Erik Neal, Chief Staff Officer, Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Keyport, was recognized as a disability champion at the sixth annual Disability Matters Awards in Newark, N.J., April 18. Neal has assisted the Navy community in helping dozens of Wounded Warriors find employment at NUWC Keyport and other Naval Sea Systems (NAVSEA) commands. Neal’s work has been beneficial to the individuals, their families and the commands that hire former military personnel. “I’ve been involved for two years, since the summer of 2010,” Cmdr. Neal said Tuesday. “To see the impact you can have with service members- to help them ease from active duty to focus on life after an injury. It’s nice to be recognized for being of service to fellow service members. This particular award means a lot to me.” In a letter of recommendation endorsing Neal’s selection, Vice Admiral Kevin McCoy,


Commander, NAVSEA, said, “His enthusiasm for Wounded Warriors is contagious and he has been instrumental in exceeding the Wounded Warrior hiring goals set for NUWC Keyport.” McCoy also commended Neal’s work with the Joint Base LewisMcChord Army Warrior Transition Battalion, the Department of Defense Operation Warfighter Program, Navy Safe Harbor and the U.S. Marine Corps’ Wounded Warrior Regiment at Camp Lejeune. “He is gifted with a natural networking ability,” McCoy added. “Helping Wounded Warriors find career opportunities is the least we can do for our seriously wounded, ill and injured service members that have sacrificed so much in the defense of our nation,” Neal commented. “I feel it is my duty to do everything within my authority to assist them. They deserve nothing less.” “Naval Sea Systems commands have hired 1092 wounded warriors since 2009,” Cmdr. Neal acknowledged. He recog-

A busy, important month for Dinner with the Smileys It’s been a busy month for Dinner with the Smileys. A recap of a few of our March and April dinners follows. Graphic Illustrator Josh Alves Before each dinner, I often wonder, “Was this a good idea? Will we have anything to talk about with the guest?” Waiting for our twelfth guest, graphic illustrator Josh Alves, to arrive was no different. Although Josh and I have lived in the same town for nearly four years, I didn’t really know him. And I’d never met his wife. For someone like me — someone who hates smalltalk and isn’t very good at it — the dinner had the potential to be an awkward first (friend) date. And then Josh and Amy and their oldest daughter came through the door, bringing with them freshly baked cookies and a burst of positive energy and conversation that never waned during

Navy Wise

Sarah Smiley the four-hour visit. We had a lively dinner (four kids at the table always ensures liveliness) and an after-dinner game of Pictionary on the back porch, where it was still warm and sunny at 6 p.m. I was sad when the evening came to an end, and not just because the black permanent marker Lindell was using for Pictionary had exploded all over my white shirt. (Also not because Josh beat all of us at Pictionary.) Rather, I didn’t want the Alves to leave. Josh left the boys with

copies of his comic books and a series of books he illustrated called Zeke Meeks. Ford and Owen read all three books before bedtime, and what a surprise (and comfort!) when they learned the main character, Zeke, has a father who is also on deployment. A Season of Learning March and April brought dinners with two school teachers (always a highlight) and visits to a local news station, where weatherman Steve McKay taught the boys how to use a green screen (Ford: “If I cover my younger brother with this green blanket, will he disappear?”) and to prove air exists (my thought: we’re breathing, but that wasn’t the right answer). Later, on another unseasonably warm Maine Spring day, Dr. Scott Peterson, a baseball historian, took us out to a ballgame and taught

the boys how to keep score using the method Henry Chadwick invented (I wasn’t kidding about him being a “baseball historian”). We met the winning pitcher, DJ Voisine, and my youngest, Lindell, 5, dazzled him with this: DJ: What position do you boys play? Ford: I play second base. Owen: I hope to play shortstop. Lindell: I’m hungry. Lunch, which consisted of hotdogs and popcorn and candy, quickly followed. A Missed Opportunity One of our April dinners was supposed to be with an elderly friend who had sometimes served as a substitute grandmother for the boys. She came to their school events, sent them birthday cards and brought them goodies on Halloween and Christmas. She always waved to them on their way to school. And, on warm days, Lindell liked to sit with her on her front steps.

Scientists in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington are launching a project to monitor local bee populations and they are seeking public help. Members of the Urban Pollinator Project will distribute specially selected tomato plants to gardeners who seek them out. The gardeners will then act as citizen scientists, monitoring the plants, performing experiments and collecting data. Data compiled will assist the researchers track the number and diversity of the native bee populations around the Seattle area. The project hopes help determine the effects of environmental influences on bees. University of Washington

Our friend had gone to an assisted living facility in the last few months, so we planned to have dinner with her there. When I called to confirm, I found out that she had passed away several weeks earlier. I needed time to absorb that. Then I told the kids. Losing our friend before we had the chance to visit her for dinner emphasized a growing theme of this project: community matters more than any “reason” we have to not invite someone to dinner: “My house is too small.” “I don’t have time.” “My house is a mess.” “I’m not a great cook.” “What would I do with my kids?” “I’ll do it later.” I could have had my friend over when the house was a mess, the food was burnt and the kids were misbehaving. She wouldn’t have cared. She would have been happy to be there. Because it’s not about the house. Or the food. It’s about being together.

And, in the end, we have less time to be together than we ever could have imagined. At the boys’ suggestion, we will honor the missed dinner and the memory of our friend through a visit with a neighbor who is 94.

researchers are working to determine what is behind the sudden decline in the diversity and abundance of honeybees and bumble bees. According to UW scientists, roughly one third of what we eat depends on bees for pollination.

When the owners of Rice Fergus Miller, an architectural, interiors and planning firm, outgrew their location, they decided to convert an abandoned building in downtown Bremerton into their new office and studio. So they turned to Bank of America for land and construction loans to help realize their vision of designing the most energy-efficient office building in the Pacific Northwest. The building was awarded LEED Platinum certification and helped spark the city’s redevelopment. The area is now home to new parks, shops and offices — many of which Rice Fergus Miller designed. Rice Fergus Miller is another example of how we’re working to help locally based businesses grow and hire in Bremerton — 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.

Soprano Jacqueline Quirk headlines at a benefit for Kitsap Opera April 29, 3 p.m., at Kitsap Golf and Country Club.

DESSERTS AND OPERA ON A GOLF COURSE BREMERTON — Some of the Northwest’s most popular opera artists will sing arias and model costumes from Kitsap Opera’s collection April 29, 3 p.m. at a benefit for Kitsap Opera. Doors open at 2. Kitsap Golf and Country Club is the venue for the Trunk Show, which includes desserts, a raffle and a silent auction. It’s called a trunk show because the artists are bringing a trunk full of costumes to wear during this special performance. While enjoying desserts, you’ll hear songs from “Rigoletto,”“Il Travatore,”“Die Fledermaus,”“La Traviata,”“Tales of Hoffmann,”“La Boheme” and “Carmen.” The show stars Jacqueline Quirk, soprano; Victoria Chaussee, mezzo-soprano; Gino Lucchetti, tenor; and Karina Gordievich, accompanist. Tickets are $35 per person. Call (360) 373-6531. Quirk debuted in the 2009-10 season as Cho-Cho San in the Canton Symphony’s “Madame Butterfly,” as Marguerite in Opera Idaho’s “Faust,” and as the soprano artist in Honolulu Symphony’s “Beethoven Ninth.” She has been engaged on the East Coast for the past year.

have been cash mobs at Jaks Cafe & Espresso in Poulsbo, CJ’s Evergreen General Store and Catering in Bremerton, Clever gift store in Kingston, The Grub Hut in Kingston, Naturally for Paws in Silverdale, and Garguile’s Red Apple Market in Bremerton. “It was phenomenal,” Red Apple owner Tim Garguile said of the response. “It was a nice day, people were in a good mood.” Garguile’s store saw an extra 200 people and a 30 percent increase in sales. “We put on five demos because we knew we were chosen. We wanted to put our best foot forward.” Mobbers got a free lotto ticket for every five bought. They sampled Williams Family Salsa, Boatshed Poppy Dressing, and other locally produced products. “We tried to promote local goods,” Garguile said. Connie Obee, a Kingston Cash Mob administrator, said Clever saw an increase in business of about 74 percent compared to the same day last year. “It was just a wonderful time,” she said.

REMERTON – It’s a mob hit any business would welcome: 20, 30 or 40 people flood, or mob, a business, committed to spending $10 to $20 each within a set period of time. It’s Kitsap County Cash Mob, a growing social movement to help local businesses. “Cash mob” takes its name from “flash mob,” described as a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of artistic expression, entertainment and satire. The Cash Mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a local store, spend $10-$20 each, then disperse, for the purpose of giving a local business a financial shot in the arm. Kitsap County’s movement has taken off thanks to a network of local Facebook administrators. Robin Henderson of Cash Mob Bremerton said the Cash Mob phenomenon started in November in Cleveland, Ohio, an outgrowth of the “Shop Local, Buy Local, Support your Local Business” campaign. It caught on. And how. Cash Mob Bremerton started March 6, Kitsap

Above, cash mobbers prepare to invade Clever Gifts in Kingston April 21. Lisa Jachimowicz / Contributed of Brownsville Deli, is pulling out all the stops to accommodate the Cash Mob that will visit her: She’s emailed fliers, posted a notice on Facebook, will hang a banner, and has scheduled additional workers. She expects 50-100 people. “We’ll be running happy hour all day, and wine tasting. And hopefully my Brownsville boys will play,” she said, referring to local jazz and rock musicians. “I can’t wait, I actually participated in the Kingston mob and it was so much fun. It’s wonderful to talk with another business owner who has the same struggles. It’s very helpful and a great networking tool.” It’s also a lot of fun. After the CJ’s cash mob, the group met at Rachel's on the Eastside to socialize. The Grub Hut wasn’t scheduled for a cash mob, but it was “hit” when participants in the mob at Clever decided to grab a bite to eat, en masse. Businesses get into the act. Clever gave certificates of appreciation to participants. Brownsville Deli will have that all-day happy hour, wine tasting and live music. At Bella Luna in Suquamish on May 3, all cash mobbers get 25 percent off – and that spectacular view of Agate Pass. By checking the online calendar, you can pick

which mob you want to participate in. And you can nominate a business you’d like to see cash mobbed. “It’s super addictive,” Chambron said. “Doing good works is always fun, right?” Anyone can join the mob. “We ask for a spending commitment of $10 to $20 per person, more if you can afford it or want to. But if you can’t spend that much, come and participate anyway. It’s a fun thing,” Chambron said. One participant had $3 or $4 to spend. Doesn’t matter — every dollar helps. If you’re a small business, the idea of 20-30 people showing up all at once can be overwhelming. Cash Mob administrators will give local businesses advance notice so they can prepare, and will spread the mob over a longer period of time. Chambron really worked it to kickstart Cash Mobs on the north end. “First, I went around to all of the local businesses — we prefer they be independent, privately owned — and took fliers around and said, ‘This is something we’re trying to get started here, would you be interested?’ If a business said, ‘Sure, cash mob me,’ I put their name on the list.” Why would a business be opposed to the idea? “Part of it was the concept was so new.

Neighborhood disputes: Be up front, and flexible Conflicts of J interest unk, noise, parking, screaming kids, fences, property lines, and anything involving a tree or pets are all neighborly topics that can illicit loads of spirited conversations between you and the Joneses. Our property value and peace of mind can be the biggest investments we’ll ever make and when a (relative) stranger threatens either one, it often makes us want to circle the wagons and defend the homestead. You’ve probably had your share of disruptive and sloppy neighbors who you’d just as soon send to the moon than have to live next door to. But without a direct flight to outer space, it may feel that you’re left with either ignoring them or living with conflict. Rest assured, you have more than those two options at your disposal. First, attack the problem, not the person. If his music is shaking the wine glasses from the cabinet, the problem is the music is too loud, not that the neighbor is an imbecile only a mother could love. When you bring up the subject, stick to the issue and refrain from making personal comments. Keep the matter between the two of you. Trying to build an army of other neighbors as a way to show force or to get some-

party or a garage sale that may cause extra traffic and parking issues for the weekend. They say good fences make good neighbors, but I think flexible ones are better. — Vivian Scott writes the “Conflicts of Interest” blog for

By VIVIAN SCOTT one else to speak on your behalf may result in your neighbor feeling attacked. It doesn’t matter if one or a hundred neighbors are sick of his junky yard, speak for you and only you. You can always include others (like code enforcers) if repeated attempts don’t resolve the problem. Oh, and if your kids get along with his, don’t take the adult issues out on them by no longer allowing play dates. Say it, don’t display it. A neighbor once told me that someone was repeatedly moving his trash cans into the middle of his driveway two days after the trash was picked up. He was clueless that the act was a way for the anonymous neighbor to display his frustration with an untidy street. I knew who was behind the act so I felt comfortable suggesting that it may be due to his trash bins being left at the curb for days. He responded, “No, I don’t think that’s it.” Oh, my. It would have been so much more effective had the trash-can-moving neighbor simply talked to the untidy neighbor. Remain cordial. If you’re frustrated with Joe down

Continued from page 2 Are you and a neighbor having a tug of war over an issue? Here are some tips on how you can work it out. the street because your conversation didn’t go as planned, continue to wave, smile, and say hello when you see him at the grocery store. This will keep the door open for future conversations. Know that your annoyance may be the least of his problems. The neighbor’s work truck dripping oil in front of the community mailbox may be an important issue for you but don’t be surprised when it’s not the biggest problem he’s facing. If he tells you he’s dealing with health issues or his marriage is falling apart, etc., figure out a way to resolve the smaller issue without too much trouble on his part. Showing a little

compassion now can go a long way toward building equity for future issues. I could go on and on with ideas on how to deal with neighbors but I’m going to stop myself here and move to a few actions you can take so you’re not the naughty neighbor others are trying to figure out how to contend with. Make sure you: Keep your home, yard, and sidewalk free of debris and unfinished projects. Sometimes we get so used to looking at something we can’t see it with fresh eyes. Your neighbors have fresh eyes, so keep things neat and clean. Minimize noise. Keep your pets happy and your

music down low. Ask around to make sure no one’s bothered by the early morning lawn mowing or evening ball games with the kids in the cul-de-sac. Follow the rules. The neighborhood covenants are for everyone, not just for your neighbors. It’s difficult to ask someone to follow rule No. 3 when you’re disregarding rule No. 4. And, don’t forget that the local laws regarding fireworks, parking, pets, outdoor fires, and maintenance apply to you as well. And, for all ya’ll (as my Southern friends would say), forgive the occasional exception to the rule. Give each other fair warning about the annual Christmas

You find a new store to shop at and possibly bring repeat customers to the business. It’s a really good thing.” Estep hopes the cash mob movement continues to spread. “My goal is to get ‘Cash Mob’ out there to get (people) involved and help keep businesses alive.” Garguile added, “I think it’s great people finally understand that the independent business in their community is important. For every dollar you spend with an independent business, 63 cents stays in town, compared to 42 cents with a chain store.”

Great-value whites from the Pacific Northwest NW WINES W ith few exceptions (such as dessert wines), white wines are less expensive than reds. Why is this? For starters, white wine grapes are a bit less expensive. For example, last fall, white wine grapes in Washington cost an average of $794 per ton, while red wine grapes cost $987. Additionally, most red wines are aged in expensive oak barrels (French oak barrels cost about $900, while American oak barrels run less than $400) that can be used only a few years, while white wines (with the exception of some Chardonnays) usually are finished in stainless steel tanks that are good for decades. Red wines often are aged for 18 months or longer and released two to three years after the grapes are picked, while many white wines are released just a few months after harvest. White wines from the Pacific Northwest pair beautifully with our region’s bountiful seafood and fresh spring and summer


produce, making these inexpensive offerings a perfect choice as we advance toward warmer days. These wines have all been tasted in the past several weeks. Look for them at your favorite wine merchant or order directly from the wineries. ■ Columbia Crest 2010 Two Vines Gewürztraminer, Washington, $8: When done well, few grape varieties are as beautiful as Gewürztraminer, and here’s a prime example. It shows classic aromas of yellow grapefruit, lychee, dusty apple and Meyer lemon. The flavorful blend of Texas pink grapefruit, green apple and more lemon gets a boost with a bit of spritzy acidity before a finish of limeade. It’s a touch off-dry, making it appealing for enjoying on a warm day or in a hot tub. ■ Kyra Wines 2010

Chenin Blanc, Columbia Valley, $13: This is a delightful drink because the combination of bright acidity and low alcohol creates balance for an off-dry approach, which is 1.8 percent residual for this vintage. Owner Kyra Baerlocher pairs her Chenin Blanc as an appetizer with calamari and a jalapeño dip, as a side dish with prawns and cilantro, an entreé with scallops in a butter infused with vanilla bean and for dessert with panna cotta. ■ Silvan Ridge Winery 2010 Semi-sparkling Early Muscat, Oregon, $14: The beautiful nose of this delightful wine screams with lychee, peach, luscious peach, lime and baking spices, and the flavors support that. It’s a veritable fruit bowl that’s almost impossible for a wine judge to spit. Serving it cold will help the acidity to balance the lofty residual sugar (12 percent). The low alcohol lends itself to Sunday brunch, and try serving it with lemon pie. ■ Covey Run Winery

“When done well, few grape varieties are as beautiful as Gewurztraminer.”

— Andy Perdue and Eric Degerman

2010 Sauvignon Blanc, Columbia Valley, $9: Aromas feature gooseberry pie, Meyer lemon, lime, peach, river rock and a whiff of tom cat. There’s delicious acidity to the drink that brings Key lime, lychee, more wet stone and some grapefruit bitterness. Those who enjoy dry Riesling will also appreciate this. ■ Latah Creek Wine Cellars 2010 Pinot Gris, Washington, $11: This Pinot Gris is approachable for many reasons, starting with aromas that are loaded with pear and backed by lime, lychee, almond, Mister Lincoln rose and slatiness. It’s far from cloying at 0.5 percent residual sugar and flashes flavors of Asian pear, Granny Smith apple, white

peach, tangerine pith and peach pit. Enjoy with white fish or pasta in cream sauce. ■ Lost West Winery NV Old Shed White, Snake River Valley, $11: Martin Fujishin owns Fujishin Family Cellars in the Snake River Valley. The Idaho native now has launched this second label with two table wines. This off-dry white is a blend of Riesling and Viognier, and it is tasty. It opens with aromas of yellow grapefruit, lychee, lemon curd, spiced oranges and a sprig of mint, followed by delicious flavors of papayas, sweet limes and other tropical fruits, all backed with just a touch of sweetness and a nice roundness in the palate. — Andy Perdue and Eric Degerman are the editors of Wine Press Northwest magazine.

Medical marijuana gardens expected to be allowed in Bremerton: In Bremerton, the city is still grappling with how to allow collective commercial marijuana growing operations in the city. State law recently expanded to allow small group efforts to produce medical marijuana for up to 10 legally defined patients. Bremerton City Planner Allison Daniels is drafting a proposal for how the city should zone collective marijuana gardens. Daniels expects to draft new zoning codes regulating palcement and permits for collective marijuana growing in the city over the next few months to have something to present to the planning commission before the moratorium ends in July. —

Bauer must wait to collect separation pay: Former Bainbridge Island city manager Brenda Bauer won’t see the first payment from her severance package until mid-June, according to city officials. Bauer was fired by the city council on March 14. Under the terms of her separation agreement with the city, she will receive monthly payments based on her salary starting in June. As city manager, Bauer earned an annual salary of $150,000. Her separation agreement guarantees her six months of salary, or $75,000. Including benefits, the total six-month cost to the city for severance pay and benefits is estimated at approximately $102,000, according to Deputy City Clerk Christine Brown. That amount includes federal taxes, retirement and health benefits. The severance package includes reimbursement for unused vacation pay, which will be paid up to a cap of 320 hours. Bauer had more than 320

hours in accrued vacation time, but her vacation pay cash-out will total roughly $23,000. —

with Chapter 7 bankruptcy: Fred Hill Materials, a three-generation concrete materials supplier to the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas, has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and closed this week. The company, located at 3231 NE Totten Road, was founded in 1946 and is currently run by the founder’s grandsons — Alex Hill, president, and Adam Hill, vice president. The company produced and delivered concrete to residential, commercial and military customers in the West Sound area. The company first hit financial trouble in 2009, when it sold its sand and gravel mining operation at Shine Pit, between Port Ludlow and Port Townsend, to Auburn-based Miles Sand and Gravel. —

Bainbridge island Review

starts investigation at Bremerton nursing home: A worker at a local retirement community earlier in April reported a fellow employee to police out of fear for resident safety, after allegedly witnessing physical abuse that included covering the mouths and noses of 90-year-olds to stop them from speaking. A caregiver working at the Cascades of Bremerton Retirement Community, 3201 Pine Road NE, is on paid leave while the home investigates allegations that the worker was abusing elderly dementia patients. According to records, Bremerton City Police responded April 13 to a report made by a Cascades employee that she’d observed her coworker being rough with patients. The reporting employee told police she would be going on vacation soon, and she wanted to come forward to protect the residents, according to the report. The suspect worker’s alleged abuses include stepping on patients’ feet and placing a hand over their mouths and noses to quiet them. — CentralKitsapReporter. com

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

irm2012 BRUSER the alan NEWBERG

People helping pets...pets helping people. Pepe’ is an old guy who came to us on our last senior

intake from a local shelter. He’d come there as a stray so there is no history on him. He’s got an Elvis sneer due to a missing portion of his upper lip. He has scars and scratches, he probably spent most of his life outdoors. He has good litterbox habits. Pepe likes to be outdoors on the porches watching the birds and squirrels. His paperwork guessed his age around 7 but it should have said at least 10-12 possibly older. He’s a friendly guy who loves to be petted. He didn’t have any issue with the other seniors at the cattery. He’ll be hanging out at the Poulsbo Petco this week hoping to find a new home where he can be indoors on a cushy bed with canned food and lots of love.

PCHS Partners for Education One of the most valuable and rewarding programs that Peninsula Community Health Services offers to the community is our Student/Extern Program. Our employees give back to their professions and the community by supporting students in various programs. Students from a broad range of disciplines are eager to participate in the program receiving real-world experience and mentoring from our staff and providers.

Over the past ten years PCHS has partnered with Olympic College, Everest College, Seattle University, University of Washington, Washington State University, Midwestern University and AT Stills University. Our student participants range from interns, externs, and residents. PCHS views this not only as a professional learning opportunity for the students, but as an opportunity for PCHS to introduce our mission and community to the students. Our students receive hands-on work experiences, practical application of their knowledge in their professional field, and exposure to a wide variety of patient care delivered to our patient population. Kim Masumoto, currently living in Seattle, came into Peninsula Community Health Services on a clinical rotation from the MEDEX program. When asked what she found different about providing care in private practice versus a community health center, the one significant difference she noticed was the need to consider costs of diagnostic studies and other ancillary services prior to referring a patient. “An

Kim Masumoto, MEDEX Program and Chris Adrig, PA-C, Provider Poulsbo Clinic expensive test can’t just be ordered for a person who is uninsured. You have to establish a good differential diagnosis in order to determine what conditions can be watched and what can’t.” This has encouraged her to develop her critical thinking skills. Understanding the financial impact of what we decide to do also

promotes a more collaborative work environment, where providers are more likely to consult with their colleagues before proceeding with a course of action. “It is very important for health care providers and consumers to have an understanding about costs, and when you only see insured patients, it is easy not to incorporate this component into decision-making.” Kim very much enjoyed her short time at PCHS, and hopes to be involved with the clinic in the future! Jen Wishinski, a UW nurse practitioner student and a resident of the Squamish/Poulsbo area, when offered a clinical rotation through Peninsula Community Health Services, thought it to be a great idea. Jen was unaware of Peninsula Community Health Services and the services offered through our clinics. This opportunity has expanded her concept of the patient/provider partnership. “You work harder with the patient to accomplish the same health care outcome for the least amount of cost to the patient.” She has had a wide variety of patients and finds it very satisfying work. This has been an excellent clinical rotational experience and would consider focusing on community health care for future employment. AT Still University 3rd year medical student, Erika Mesick, is formulating her medical career around community health. AT Still University partners with multiple community health centers across the United

Dr. Insani (Michael) William Muir Your smile is often the first thing people notice when they meet you, so taking care of your teeth is an

important thing to do. PCHS Dental in Bremerton specializes in helping keep these smiles healthy from infancy into early adulthood. From the time they get their first teeth, we welcome children to come in for regular exams. Even at this early age, the family will learn how to properly care for their child’s teeth and set them up for good habits that will ensure good oral health.

office. From taking x-rays to cleaning teeth to educating your child about properly taking care of their teeth, they will make sure your child has a good start to a lifetime of great smiles.

From the beginning, you’ll be greeted by our friendly front desk staff who can assist you in setting up appointments, ordering interpreters as needed and taking care of any referrals to specialty offices. They are also great at verifying and even helping you apply for insurance if you need it. PCHS accepts all dental insurance including state medical. For those without insurance, the receptionists can help set you up on a sliding scale, which allows you pay a fee based on your income.

In addition to taking care of children, we also help adults in our community by addressing toothaches and doing our best to get them out of pain. Though we are limited as to what treatment we provide for adults, if we are unable to help you out in office, our staff can often point patients in the right direction to get the care they need from specialty providers in the community.

Our wonderful back office staff will assist in preparing your child for their exam. The assistants are well-trained to put children at ease and make them feel welcome in our kid-friendly

Finally, your child will be examined by one of our highly-skilled dentists who will identify any problems with their teeth and discuss the recommended treatment with you.

Your teeth are not only essential to making that first impression with others, but the health of your mouth can affect your health overall. Great dental care early on can help create a lifetime of happy, healthy and beautiful smiles.

- Franklin D. Roosevelt 2011 was a year of challenges, opportunities, frustrations, and in the end accomplishments. The PCHS Board of Directors engaged in thoughtful discussions in the midst of an environment and an economy where uncertainty was the theme. Mid-year, once again taking that “leap of faith” which has come to characterize PCHS, we embarked on the process of opening a second clinic in Bremerton to respond to the crushing demand for services in our 616 Sixth Street site. At the start of 2012, we opened the 2508 Wheaton Way Clinic, just across Cherry Street from the Harrison Medical Center Emergency Department entrance. Significant effort expended, no additional funding obtained, and the almost simplistic belief that “if we build it, they will come,” proved this adage once again true. Other major achievements in 2011 focused on significant expansion of efforts in both information services, led by a new CIO, and demonstration of quality led by a new RN/Quality Director. Additionally, the language of health care reform has created a new lexicon as we build programs to demonstrate “meaningful use of electronic health records”, constructing steps to define what we have always done in providing a “patient centered medical home”, and continue to build relationships in our local community, with the

state, and at the federal level as well. Leadership from long time staff was reliable, Leadership from new staff was welcomed, and Leadership from the PCHS Board of Directors (51% of them patients served by PCHS providers) was exceptional. We puzzle over the future, but we never doubt the importance and value of what PCHS contributes to the community. In 2011 we provided 23,014 patients 72,177 medical/ dental/behavioral health visits. But what has defined growth for PCHS is that in 2009 the percentage of patients served was 26% and two years later in 2011—the uninsured represent 50% of our patients. Our hope is in the promise of health care reform’s full implementation in 2014. We don’t know what all the details may look like, but the promised impact on the lives of 12,000 Kitsap County residents by providing basic insurance coverage will have a huge impact on the health care delivery system as a whole. We agree with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt when he said, “The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.” The next few years will be no different from those just passed, filled with challenges which will result in opportunities. We look forward

to the future; we hope you might consider joining us—as a volunteer, member of our Board or committees, advocate, or friend. We need your help. Let us know how you would like to participate---call 360377-3776. We are especially grateful to those of you who have once again contributed to PCHS or have done so for the first time, whether with time, financial donations, or both. Thank you. If you know anyone who could embark on a healthier life if they only had a health care home, suggest they call PCHS. Letting people know about PCHS is our greatest challenge. Help us today. We are open to all---those who are new to Medicare, those who are insured by TriCare and other insurances, those who are on Medicaid, and, of course, those who are uninsured who can access our services by paying on a sliding scale based on income and family size. We also have a collaboration with the Salvation Army and Coffee Oasis to support the homeless in our community. PCHS and Community Health Centers across the country are part of the solution to the health care crisis. Join us today! Barb Malich, CEO

PCHS IS WAITING FOR YOU… Over the last few months, readers of this paper may have noticed messages from PCHS about who we are as well as what we do. We make no claims to perfection, but we hope everyone might consider becoming a patient, partner or friend of PCHS. PCHS provides services to everyone who walks through our doors without regard for ability to pay. PCHS provides care to active duty military families and the retired military (through Tri-Care). If you are new to Medicare (age 65+), PCHS wants to welcome you to establish care with us and work with us to be your “patient centered medical home”. If you are enrolled with Community Health Plan of Washington or Molina Health Plans for Medicaid “Healthy Options”, Disability Lifeline Medical, Basic Health, and Apple Health for Kids: PCHS wants to be your provider of choice! If you are fully insured by a commercial insurance plan, becoming a PCHS patient will assist us in continuing to provide care to the 11,000+ uninsured patients we take care of annually. No one gets paid to care for the uninsured, but we do ask that they participate in the costs of their care by co-payment of fees, costs of labs and prescriptions, and if needed, the uninsured are “on the hook” for most of the costs of their care provided by specialty providers. Just by becoming a PCHS patient, you are making a

contribution to the health of the community. We don’t want you to wait to see a doctor….deferring or delaying your visit to a medical professional until you are “really sick” will make the situation much worse. Call our patient service center today for an appointment: 360-377-3776. We hope you don’t have to wait, once you are at a PCHS Clinic…..our goal, every time, is to be ready to see you, to provide top quality care, and to become your partners in health---for preventive care, health screenings, immunizations, and to support your access for whatever your health care needs may be. If you have not visited a PCHS clinic—please stop by and see for yourself just what we have to offer. Remember, PCHS has clinics throughout Kitsap County: 320 South Kitsap Boulevard in Port Orchard, 19917 – 7th Avenue, Suite 205 in Poulsbo, and 616 Sixth Street OR 2508 Wheaton Way (just across from Harrison Medical Center) in Bremerton. Dental services are available to children and also adult emergencies at 616 Sixth Street in Bremerton. PCHS Pharmacies are available at all sites as are laboratory services. Behavioral health services are also available at every site. Evening and weekend clinics are available at the Wheaton Way Clinic Monday-Friday 5-9pm and

Volunteers also have the opportunity to participate in numerous educational and community outreach events such as health fairs and fundraisers.

BoArD oF DIreCtorS:

The heart of our healthcare family Peninsula Community Health Services, as a local not-for-profit corporation, is governed by volunteer members of our board of directors. In fact, most of them use our health care services. Having patient advocates on the governing board of directors allows PCHS to better know the needs of its patients. The Board has several jobs and one is to make sure the company observes state and federal standards in many areas of health care. They also make decisions about our programs and services. One decision this year was to go ahead with a new clinic on Wheaton Way. Board members saw the need to expand our services in spite of the recession and decided to build the second Bremerton clinic. PCHS Board members take an active interest in the welfare of PCHS patients. They take our mission of “providing accessible, affordable, compassionate, quality health care services for our communities” to heart. The community and PCHS are fortunate to have these dedicated community members willing to serve.
