Port wants dredging at Appletree Cove Sediment is causing problems for boats at low tide By MEGAN STEPHENSON Staff Writer

KINGSTON — Local

environmentalists say the Carpenter Creek bridge project is great for the local flora and fauna in the Kingston estuary, but it has had some unintended consequences for the Port of Kingston. The bridge project,

completed in February, opened up Kingfisher and Carpenter streams back to their natural flow into Appletree Cove. Years of sediment buildup, however, has poured out and caused problems for boats at low tide at the boat launch and

the ends of B and C docks. The port is applying for permits to perform a maintenance dredge to remove the extra silt. Port Manager Kori Henry said a dredge is a long time coming — the effect of the opened estuary See DREDGE, Page 3

visited the village at Point Julia in the 1930s, traveling here by canoe with a relative, Lach-ka-nim, son of Klallam leader Chetzemoka. That visit was the last time Waterhouse traveled in a canoe. In the ensuing years, he found himself living in a cultural drought: residential school, placement with a foster family on an Illinois farm, a career in the military. Then, renewal: the birth of the modern Canoe Journey in 1989 and that historic landing at Alki Beach that year. And on this day, he again watched what was once banned — the language, the songs, the dances — carried on by a new generation. Asked what he wants young people to take with them from the Journey, he said, “I want them to learn more about their culture, about their people and how they lived. This culture was different than any other culture in the world.” Appropriate that the theme of the 2012 Canoe Journey/Paddle to Squaxin is “Teachings of Our Ancestors.” That those teachings were being

The next day, at Suquamish, Chief Seattle Days Junior Princess Hailey Crow welcomed arriving canoes. After the Ahousaht First Nation canoe arrived, Noah Thomas stood in the canoe and offered a song in a clear, confident voice that seemed to wow people on the beach. Noah has been singing since he was 3. “It’s already there,” Makah elder Tony Johnson said of Noah’s song. “We bring it out. We don’t have to force it, but we encourage it.” Later July 21, in Suquamish’s House of Awakened Culture, the Chehalis canoe family entered with a paddle song that filled the longhouse. Skipper Gail White Eagle said Chehalis bought its canoe six years ago. “It was the first canoe in Chehalis territory in 100 years,” she said. “We’re a young canoe family. But these young people are going to carry it on.” Willie Seymour and the Kw’umut Lelum canoe family offered a journey song that was handed down to him by his grandfather. The song has a lot of meaning to this canoe family, whose members are foster children with Kw’amut Lelum Child and Family Services of Vancouver Island, B.C. Seymour, whose indigenous name is

absorbed by a new generation was apparent. It was apparent in Lil’ S‘Klallam Princess Jayla Moon, as she welcomed a canoe to Point Julia and gave permission for pullers to come ashore. It was apparent in Shane Baze, a 10-year-old Port Gamble S’Klallam, who gave baggies of deer jerky to people in the S’Klallam longhouse during protocol; the meat was from the first deer he hunted. It was apparent in Tahahawat Payne-Sablam, a Quileute fourth-grader, who danced a wolf dance to honor a mentor, George Jones of Port Gamble S’Klallam. Tahahawat also presented Jones with a woven cedar hat. The act was one of love as well as courage and discipline: Tahahawat is very shy, yet he danced and made the presentation in front of about 200 people. There would be more examples over the weekend as the Journey visit continued at Little Boston and moved on to Suquamish. At Little Boston, Russell Fulton watched as his adult nephew, Benji Ives, led a team of cooks in steaming and cooking crab, clams and oysters to feed more than 1,000 guests July 20. Ives said his uncle taught him the way to properly steam and cook seafood the way the family has done it for seven generations.

The funding for land conservation will also be based on the land’s value after the appraisal is complete.

Those values include “raising a happy family and being responsible for others around you,” she said. “Our families are like anyone’s family ought to be.

that gets you where you need to go,” she said. That rule applies in the water and in life. To non-Native observers, the Journey teaches “a deeper understanding of our culture, of the importance of culture and family and friends.” In 1989, the Canoe Journey, originally called “Paddle to Seattle,” was organized as part of the Washington State

Centennial; it led to a revival of the canoe culture and reinstated the indigenous presence on the ancestral highways of the coastal Pacific Northwest. Every year, about 100 indigenous canoes travel from their territories to a host nation, with stops at indigenous territories along the way, for celebration and cultural sharing. Participation in the Canoe Journey has grown to include canoe cultures

from Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, Florida, Oregon, Canada, Japan and New Zealand. Twenty-seven canoes visited Port Gamble S’Klallam on July 20; 32 canoes stopped at Suquamish on July 21. Canoes departed Suquamish on July 23 for points south en route to the territory of the Squaxin Island Tribe, July 29 to Aug. 5.

vulnerable nature of the bay and the shoreline, much of the focus is on acquiring the 566-acre shoreline block. The state Legislature appropriated $7 million through the Department of Ecology for the shoreline, which is dependent on a financial agreement with OPG of the clean-up responsibilities of the old mill site. Rose said that agreement should be complete by early August. Sullivan said this agreement gives the Tribe the opportunity to enhance their natural resources, which they have been struggling to sustain for several years. “A lot of people thought the reservation was plentiful for many years,” he said. “[But] there are more harvesters now. This gives us an opportunity to catch up and keep up.”

Dredge

The port first dredged the cove for the boat launch in 1993. Kitsap County took the lead on the bridge project, and the port asked the county to help finance the dredging. However, because the port applied to dredge 10 years ago, Henry said the county is not going to take responsibility for the sediment build up. The port’s engineer surveyed the current depth and compared that number to the cove’s depth after the initial dredge. To obtain the permits, the report, which is not yet available, will show the various agencies the areas needing to be dredged and to what depth. The estuary, on the other hand, is thriving. Stillwaters Environmental Center collected data on the water quality and sediment in the creek. Stillwaters Administrative Director Naomi Maasberg said the mud flats on the north side of the bridge are rich in nutrients. “There is more fertility per

acre than richest farmland in Kansas” in the Carpenter Creek estuary, Maasberg said. The stream is in a critical position for migrating salmon from river basins throughout Puget Sound, according to Stillwaters’ research, including endangered Puget Sound chinook, chum, coho and searun cutthroat trout. The organization documented the return of a sand dollar colony, and the ghost shrimp that still feed in the 30 acres of salt marsh habitat. Before, the 10-foot-wide culvert was so narrow it created a water vacuum with the tides. “The velocity of the water was so strong it was impossible for small fish to get in and out,” Maasberg said. “Before it was like a fire hose shooting in there. Imagine trying to water your garden with a fire hose.” Now, the streams have “re-meandered” themselves and small critters, plants and insects are returning.

Continued from page 1 into Appletree Cove pressured the need for a dredge but did not cause it. In the last few months, six boats have grounded at low tide, including a few Suquamish fishing boats. Permission to dredge is a difficult process — the port had a meeting with the Army Corps of Engineers, state Department of Fish and Wildlife, Suquamish Tribe and Kitsap County in late July to discuss the port engineer’s hydrographic survey. Preliminary estimates put the cost around $450,000. Dredging involves excavation of shallow water areas to gather and dispose of sediment accumulated on the bottom, to keep waterways navigable. It is a delicate process, as the excavation that stirs the water can increase turbidity, or cloudiness, which can affect aquatic species’ spawning.

A great day to clean the Green Friends and neighbors of the Village Green noticed with pleasure on June 15 that a wonderful crew of people was doing stream restoration work there rather than doing yard work at home. Twenty-three people from the Kingston Windermere Realty office devoted their three-hour Community Service Day to removing invasive species along Kingston Creek, which runs through the Village Green Community Park on West Kingston Road. Many thanks to all for rolling up their sleeves and yanking out/clipping blackberry, Scotch broom, and some English ivy holly. It was as if the stream could breathe again. Thanks to the participation of Carin Anderson and Dana Coggon from Kitsap County, everyone was able to focus energy on those invasives and leave the native plants such as salmonberry and, yes, nettles. Thanks to Kathy Curry, all of that material was dumped for burning without having to pay a fee. Thanks to Nick Jewett for making the arrangements and connections with Kitsap County. It was especially pleasing that a day forecast to be lousy turned out to be just beautiful. Thank you, whoever it was that helped arrange that!

Many hands made the 4th a success Did you get a chance to enjoy any part of the Kingston 4th of July celebration? It takes a hundreds of volunteer hours and the generosity of many of the local businesses and citizens to make the celebration happen. When you are shopping,

dining, banking, working out, or having a cup of coffee, you are probably patronizing one of the businesses who helps make the celebration a success. Among the merchants who make sizeable contributions in cash or goods and services are Kingston IGA/Subway, the Main Street Ale House, Cup & Muffin, Kitsap Bank, Cuppa Bella, Columbia Bank, Kitsap Credit Union, Randy Kan, Westside Pizza, the Port of Kingston, The Oak Table Cafe, Kitsap County Sheriff, North Kitsap Fire and Rescue, Kingston Fitness, Pine Cone Gifts/ Lucky Star Consignments, Windermere Real Estate, Henery Hardware, The Grub Hut and many others. Sealevel Bulkhead Builders owner Craig Powell heard earlier this year that we paid quite a bit of money for the fireworks barge and offered to donate the barge and tug from his own business. Thanks, Craig. On the 4th of July website, www. kingston4thofjuly.com, you can find a list of everyone who contributed to make the celebration work. By the way, this great website design was donated by local resident Elizabeth Sallis. There is a team of volunteers some of whom start meeting and planning in November for the next year’s event.

this because we truly love the town of Kingston and we want our friends, neighbors and guests to enjoy a great Independence Day party. After a wonderful Yacht Club Pancake Breakfast, there is nothing like walking down (or up) the parade route half an hour before it begins and seeing all of the happy people lining the street. The early morning Fun Run is a great way to start the day. The activities in Tiny Town are over the top and we all truly enjoy seeing all the happy people there. Our parade is one of the best. The special 4th of July Farmers Market is always great with their expanded musical program. The live band concerts in the gazebo leading up to the fireworks display all make a great celebration that we hope you enjoy. I still think that our fireworks display produced by Western Display Fireworks is one of the best on the sound. None of this happens, though, without the devoted volunteers who make it all work. There is a tab on the website if you want to get involved. A few of the team members have been doing this for more than a dozen years and we would sure enjoy seeing a few new and dedicated faces in the group. Please think about

Local pride, volunteerism and some tasty fun I

’ve been told that there are two season in North Kitsap: July, and the rest of the year. And on July 4 week in Hansville and Indianola, Norman Rockwell couldn’t have painted a prettier picture. At Buck Lake Park, Uncle Sam — reenactor Rex Gallaher — greeted us at the Hansville Red, White and Blue Breakfast. If the U.S. ever needs Uncle Sam’s image for a bill or coin, they have their model in Gallaher. The interior of the community center was decorated in red, white and blue, of course, but with the addition of beautiful quilts representing each branch of the military.

Continued from page 4 presentation were few and the comments mostly positive. Some of the comments, though, were a bit fawning and reflected the capital interests of the speaker, particularly in the case of the representative from the local tourism board, who was effusive in her praise and transparent in her goal to get tourist dollars. She didn’t once mention the environmental impact of increased traffic. It is discouraging that after all we know of the havoc corporations have wreaked, over the last few years especially, on both our environment and economy, there are those who don’t pause and reflect but rather rush headlong for the bottom line. We all know too well that the better something looks on a shiny PowerPoint, the deeper we need to look into it. That is not to say OPG’s efforts are devious. I applaud their efforts to attempt cleaning up an area that was so devastated by the logging industry. However, there are many aspects to their plan that we will need to monitor closely. The plans for the replacement of the water treatment plan for a septic system need to be impeccable. The water table is high in that area and, with the density of the community they plan, I worry about the water supply being ruined. The plans for the water-

front need to be beyond first rate. The bay is polluted, despite what Mr. Rose said about the water quality being excellent. Perhaps compared to other areas that have been devastated by industry, that is a true statement. But, if my experience tells me anything, we need to do better than industry standards and state threshold requirements for clean-up. This is our one chance to get it right. So, it is imperative that all county, state and federal government environmental requirements, checks and balances, be strictly followed. OPG will file an Environmental Impact Statement as required by law. North Kitsap residents and other concerned citizens must read it to make sure that the standards as set forth by SEPA are followed. It is essential that when the public comments period is open, people participate fully in bringing up any points they have to the respective government committees. With all that, however, I am encouraged by the actions of OPG and know that with their efforts, and ours, we will have a jewel of a town out here in North Kitsap. Mark Barabasz Hansville

It’s a way to touch base with neighbors, to make sure things are OK, to make sure you know about events that are coming up: the Point No Point Lighthouse celebration on Aug. 5, the Eglon summer potluck the same day, the Greater Hansville Community Club rummage sale Aug. 11-12, the Ladies Aid Meeting on Aug. 22, and Hansville Coaster Games Aug. 25. This event helps keep the community together. It also netted $1,530 for the community center — $30 over last year. Glad Molly and I could help break last

year’s mark. See, every dollar does count. This event operated as smoothly as the chow line on the LST I served on. You walked in, bought a ticket, Jo Nelson put your name on a reservation list and seated you at a table where you could have a coffee or tea and chat while you waited for a seat to open up in the big hall. Ah, then your name was called and you walked in to that wonderful breakfast smell and the sound of friendly chatter. All you can eat. Fortunately, one plate was all I could eat (OK, I actually had two helping of pancakes). I had a nice visit with Fred Nelson, who told me about the Hansville-Eglon Historical Society and the long ties between the two

communities. An army of volunteers kept the food going from griddle to kitchen to plate. Thanks to Mr. Coaster Chuck Strahm and his editing of the Hansville Log, I learned the names of all the friends and neighbors who made this event happen: George Briese, Marco and Cathy Tyler, Lois Lee, Judy Foritano, Sharon Jordan, Jo and Fred Nelson, Connie Gordon, Mike Bryant, Shelly and Rol Malan, Brenda and Ken Erickson, Ruth and Dick Thomas, John and Glenyce Ross, Marilyn and Jack Christofferson, Art and Becky Ellison, Don and Lenore Lynch, Angi Jensen, Gary Dion, Howie O’Brien, Claude Olson, Dot Bogash, Nancy White, Alice Ingle, Laureen Davis, Linda Hell,

Paula Hettler, Ramey Fair, Pat McMaster, Judy and Jack Tallman, Debra Bean, and Becky Weinbaum. “And last but not least, we thank our scholarship student, Amanda Holbrook, who almost single-handedly bussed all sixteen tables,” Strahm reported. Visions of strawberries still dance in my head after attending the Indianola Strawberry Festival three days later at Living Hope Church.

not fast enough. Many of our world trading partners are struggling too. We all know people who are desperately searching for jobs and those that are trying to hang onto their homes. Our youth are hurdling obstacles, getting the education they need. This is the time to vigorously move forward with President Obama with his stamina, endurance and vitality. He will continue fighting for creating jobs, reforming student loans, establishing affordable health care for all, bringing our troops home where they will be respectfully received as getting their needs met, and bridging the gap between rich and poor. He will also keep working on needed environmental and financial institution regulations. All of his efforts will also help children, a high concern of mine.

Instead of tax breaks for the rich, I think funds have to be put into desperately needed infrastructure which would help create jobs. Also, we have to get rid of Citizens United, which is helping flood politics with money.

Re-electing President Obama is going to take strenuous, energetic work to overtake the millions of dollars in ads against him. Please join me in this vigorous endeavor to reelect President Obama and to continue pushing

forward.

Take time to look into the Affordable Care Act T

he recession has had an impact on each of our lives with inflation of necessities like food, energy, and health care and insurance. Some have also experienced the devastation of unemployment, bankruptcy and foreclosure. Many of us have realized that, due to this economy, we’re just an accident, an illness, or a pink slip away from medical and/or financial disaster. And some of us can no longer afford to seek health care when we know we should. It’s no surprise, then, that literally millions are so thankful that the President, Congress and Supreme Court have given us the Affordable Care Act (ACA), aka “Obamacare” (I’m really starting to like that nickname). Fifty million is the ballpark number of uninsured Americans today. Thirty million is the ball-

park number of Americans ACA is projected to provide health care to by 2019, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Washington’s uninsured number is nearly 1.1 million, according to insurance statistics. ACA is projected to benefit 74 percent of those uninsured (more than 800,000) beginning in 2014. Kitsap’s uninsured number (younger than 65) is more than 33,000. ACA is projected to benefit 82 percent of those (more than 27,000) in 2014. It’s not surprising, however, that most of us understand little about the law. For one thing, it’s been going through the approval gauntlet since 2009. Many concessions and changes have complicated the law on its journey to get passed and to the people. The final law is far from perfect. Another reason ACA is

as it turns out By marylin olds complicated is because it happens gradually over a period of years, ending in 2020. Very simply, ACA does many things for many different people who need it. Some basic ACA health insurance reforms already in place: n Pre-Existing Conditions. Children can no longer be denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions. Adults with pre-existing conditions, until 2014, may get help finding coverage by contacting the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (www.pcip.gov). n Preventative Care.

vices, without co-pays or deductibles. n Women. Preventative women’s care is free, no copayment, coinsurance or deductible. Services include mammograms, screenings for cervical cancer, contraception, HPV testing and domestic violence counseling. n Seniors. No co-pays or deductibles for many preventative treatments such as vaccinations by physicians, diagnostic tests and screenings. Medicare benefits stay the same. n “Donut Hole.” After spending a certain amount on prescriptions, seniors receive $250 toward closing the Medicare Part D coverage gap in their coverages. Next year half of the coverage gap will be covered, and by 2020 it will be closed completely. n Young Adults. Parents may keep their children on their family plan until they are 26. n Lifetime Caps. No lifetime or annual caps may be put on coverages. Some basic health insurance reforms beginning in 2014: n Pre-Existing Condi-

tion. Adults may not be denied insurance due to pre-existing conditions, or be charged more because of medical history. n Medicaid. Expansion of Medicaid will occur for low-income residents younger than 65 with certain income levels. n Insurance Companies. Insurers must spend no less than 85 cents on every dollar toward actual medical care. If more than 15 percent is spent on administrative costs or profits, customers must receive rebates. n Health Insurance Exchanges. New groups will be set up to create organized and competitive markets for acquiring health insurance. n Mandate/Penalty. The Supreme Court did not allow the individual mandate, but the penalty for not carrying insurance remains. One percent of the population is projected to end up paying any penalty, and it maxes out at one percent of one’s income. n Tax Credits. Insurance premium tax credits are subsidies available to those who used the Health

pickers and berry cleaners and cooks and servers had their work cut out for them: All told, the church made desserts out of 30 flats of strawberries. Inside the dining area, the sweet sounds of Bob Danielson on clarinet and Pastor Rick Ellis on guitar (they played a jazz version of “Just a Closer Walk With Thee”) mingled with the sweet scent of apple, berry and fruit pies baked by the ladies of the church (I bought a cherry pie). Josie Jacobs, 11, of Indianola and Greta Reydell, 11, of Poulsbo served big

helpings of strawberry shortcake. Sandy Pearson has volunteered at the Strawberry Festival every year since the first event in 1975. That year, it raised $400. This year, it was expected to net $4,000. In 1975, “we decided to do something to raise money to build up the church,” Pearson said. The church settled on a Strawberry Featival as a fundraiser “because the strawberries are ripe then.” And who doesn’t like strawberry shortcake? And an opportunity to get

Insurance Exchanges to purchase insurance and who have a determined low income level. The Congressional Budget Office estimates the cost of implementing ACA “is about only a third of the cost of tax cuts, overwhelmingly favoring the wealthy, that Mitt Romney is proposing over the same period,” writes the New York Times’ Paul Krugman. “True, Mr. Romney says that he would offset that cost, but he has failed to provide any plausible explanation of how he’d do that. The Affordable Care Act, by contrast, is fully paid for, with an explicit combination of tax increases and spending cuts elsewhere. So the law that the Supreme Court upheld is an act of human decency that is also fiscally responsible.” We’ll each need to take some time to look into the law and see how it’s able to help us individually. Your insurance provider should already have notified you regarding what has gone into place. Another good resource to start with is www.whitehouse.gov. — Contact Marylin Olds at marylin.olds@gmail.com.

London Olympics are a model of sustainability Games were awarded to London in 2004. They are addressing five areas of sustainable life with the Games: n Climate change, including the goal to reduce the carbon footprint of the Games — a huge challenge when you consider all the construction and all the travel involved. The carbon footprint is being measured, from the green construction phase through energy use during the Games. The Velodrome track, for instance, is built from sustainable FSC certified wood and is a 100 percent naturally ventilated building. Twenty percent of the energy used during the Games will be coming from renewable resources like wind and solar. When they couldn’t fit in a wind turbine on the site to produce their power, they decided to offset some power usage by retrofitting energy-efficient solutions in homes and schools in the community, a solution that will have great consequences for the future. For the first time, no cars will be permitted on the Olympic grounds; people will have to leave their cars outside the city and use public transportation. The transportation infrastructure

choices for the future By naomi maasberg of London was upgraded, which will improve their public transport for decades to come, as well. n Waste for the landfill is being drastically reduced. The goal is for zero-waste Games, an amazing goal, to be achieved with excellent management practices and by promoting long-term changes. There will be a mix of composting, recycling and reduced packaging on the site, and garbage will be processed to look for recyclables, compostables, and other items that can be kept out of the landfill. There is a huge educational opportunity here; think of all the Olympic participants who will be learning about the importance of “reduce-reuse-recycle,”

f you signed up for the library summer reading program and finished your 10 hours of reading, please remember to pick up your free paperback book before Labor Day at the library. Here are our fun events for August. Kingston Book Group: Aug. 1, 10:30 a.m. Read something you like and be prepared to talk about it to the group. Morning Stor ytime & Craft: Aug. 1, 8 and 15, 10:30 a.m. Come for a morning full of reading, singing and crafting. Pre-readers can count story time toward their summer-reading hours.

and will hopefully re-think their actions at home. This could have worldwide implications. n Biodiversity is a key element of sustainability. Their goal is to conserve the biodiversity present, both in the natural world and in the human presence. But they go beyond that to creating new urban green spaces and making it possible for the diverse humanity to spend time in nature during their stay. n Inclusion of all is not automatic at the Olympic Games. Their goal is to assure access for all and to celebrate diversity. This reaches out to the future life of the location of the Games in East London. The location is a particular industrial area that is very poor economically. The rivers running through the area are polluted and a lot of the land is contaminated. There was even a huge stack of refrigerators there, ones that no one knew what to do with them. We have some bad Superfund sites here, but this contamination of the Earth goes back to the industrial days of Victorian England. After the Games, this community will not simply have many usable, sustainably built arenas or community gathering areas. It will have thousands of affordable apartment homes, also

their goal is to make that a sustainable part of the U.K. life. A healthy lifestyle includes living within the limited resources of our planet. Eating well, being physically active in the outdoors, and improving our physical environment will improve our own quality of life, our well-being, and our happiness. This, too, is something I hope will spread throughout the world. The Olympic Games are inspiring on so many levels; this year we can also look forward to being inspired to be sustainable citizens of Earth. Stillwaters is starting a new Sustainability Discussion Group in the fall. If you are interested, call (360) 297-1226. — Naomi Maasberg is director of Stillwaters Environmental Learning Center.

They want to create a better community with walkable neighborhoods, but will not allow developers to drive out the working-class people who live there now. Their goal is not to create a gentrified district for the privileged, but to improve the infrastructure of the current community for the people who live there now. This is a project in process that will continue for years. n Healthy Living is the fifth sustainability theme. That seems a given for any Olympic Games, since the focus is on athletics and active lifestyles.

t our house, we are always ver y excited about the Olympics. There are many great sports to watch that we do not usually get to see, lots of information about countries and athletes that we would not otherwise hear, and fascinating characters and dramas that unfold over the two weeks. This year there is more excitement to watch as the London Olympics become the most sustainable, “green” Olympic Games to date, and a model for sustainability long after the Olympics have gone. We had this experience when the Seattle World’s Fair was designed to be a permanent improvement for the city — a new community center for the new century — and it was very successful. But the London Olympics has the advantage of 50 additional years of knowledge of sustainability and the needs of our planet. With 77,000 athletes, plus all the coaches, support teams, families, judges, organizers and hosts, I can only imagine the nightmare of trying to do anything new. Wisely, they set up an independent commission to watch over and guide all things sustainable, which has been working since the

A lot is happening at Kingston’s Village Green T

here’s been an explosion of activity at the Village Green recently, and even more to come. You may have noticed the picnic pavilion is under construction. The Village Green Foundation and the Kingston-North Kitsap Rotary Club are collaborating to build the open-sided structure near the playground. Volunteers are extensively involved and local contractors are being used for work that is heavier than volunteers should do. Thanks to Jon Sole of the local Rotary Club and to all of the community members who are helping to make it happen: Matt House, Russell Bishop, Dave Wetter, and the countless people who have donated to Rotary projects. The project might be done in

Village Green update village green foundation time for the next big event. Groundbreaking for the Martha & Mary Village Green Apartments, 35 affordable senior rental units, will take place Aug. 9 at 10 a.m. All are welcome. This event is a milestone for the Village Green Foundation’s community center project as well as for the senior apartments: the foundation is sharing the infrastructure cost of the subsurface work — sewer lines, water lines, telephone conduit — so that the community center work can proceed when we have finished raising the funds for the

building. We are targeting late spring 2013 for groundbreaking for the community center building, given that our capital campaign is on track throughout this year. Don’t miss our fourth annual Pie in the Park Aug. 23 at 6 p.m. It’s as much a fun-raiser as a fundraiser, and this year should be an occasion for still more giggles, as we’re adding a children’s pie-eating contest, which starts at 6 p.m. By that time we’ll see plenty of evidence of senior apartments under construction, and one more exciting project. Read on! The Pea-Patch garden is about to start up. Final arrangements were made for water, fencing and a management team. Look for activity in August. The Village Green Metropolitan Park District

Port activity doesn’t slow in cloudy weather W

hen summer finally gets here, it sure goes by quickly doesn’t it? The 4th of July came and went in a quick flourish of a midweek holiday that began the longest stretch of good weather we have had in 10 months. We actually had seven days in a row without rain! Watching the evening news these days, though, makes me glad I live in the Pacific Northwest. Extreme heat, raging fires and tornados are not my cup of tea. Crabbing season opened July 1 with dozens of our friends and neighbors har-

vesting the tasty creatures in record numbers and sizes. It is great to hear of folks throwing back good legal-sized crabs in favor of keeping a few “monster 7plus-inchers.” Putting back the moderate-sized ones will just keep the populations growing for future seasons. Someone told me once that a female Dungeness crab will have several hundred thousand babies each year.

For years, we have used letters and numbers to designate how good or marginal things in life are. Lloyds of London, probably the most famous insurance agency on the planet, has also done so for quite a while. The Lloyd’s Register of British and Foreign Shipping, which deals with the design and construction of ships, was first published in the mid-1700s. The state of a ship’s hull was designated by letters and that of its equipment (anchor,

cables, etc.) by numbers. This meant, for example, that a ship classified A-1 was first-rate. If classified A-2, the hull was considered first-rate, but its equipment second-rate. That is not necessarily a nautical term, but I found it to be interesting and wanted to share it with you. I think that if Lloyds was evaluating the Kingston Community News, it would be rated A-1+. As the months roll from July to August, I will be up in the northern islands of the state and the Canadian Gulf Islands. I will see you all at a concert on the cove early in August.

The festival exists to promote the living legacy of maritime music from all corners of the globe, as played by the many local and national artists who live here in the Puget Sound area and across the country. Puget Sound has a vibrant maritime music culture, and we try to bring that alive. The festival was founded by Chris Glanister — a sometime Celtic and maritime musician, audio engineer, and board member of Puget’s Sound Productions — on a rainy winter afternoon while sitting on the ferry, returning from a meeting with the folks at Port Gamble. With the help of a few good friends, we’ve been hosting this for five years, and hope to continue for many more. Roots Rock Trail Races: The Port Gamble Half Marathon, a challenging course through beautiful single track trails and dirt roads. This run has a little bit of it all, with plenty of hills and fast descents. We will have beer, soda and barbecue for all participants so stick around after.

Graduation: what does it mean? the buc stops here By KYLER LACEY

G

raduation: a goal, an award, and a life changing event. Which is it? All of them and more. Graduating from high school is a major stepping stone in someone’s life. It could mean the end of school. It could mean the beginning of college. Or, it could mean the beginning of a career. Those seniors that just graduated have a lot of life choices to make. If they have already made them, its coming time to put them into action. Now is the time when proper planning pays off. College applications and scholarships become more important and are going to be used soon rather than “in the future,” because the future is now. Plans See Graduation, Page 15

KHS teacher shares his artwork W

hen one enters the Visual Arts room at Kingston High School, a powerful creative presence is unleashing the talents of his students. James Andrews, a young teacher who inspires, also creates and his paintings are on view at Poulsbo’s ChocMo Bistro through the end of August. KHS Fine Arts Boosters shines the spotlight on this artist who “feels super excited to see my work up on the wall, see the story unfold and see how my works relate to each other.” He added, “ChocMo provides a great alternative space to private and cooperative galleries, where things like mine fit. It is a godsend.” Andrews’ work is figurative, personal and surrealistic. He is not creating art solely for the purpose of sales or to fit into a certain commercial “niche.” Rather he is focused on making art that tells the stories and asks the questions that he has inside him. After hearing first what the viewer sees and feels he will walk them through the specific archetype and symbolism in the story. “Conversation is important. Science, philosophy, religion are all connected, all asking the same question: ‘Why?’ ” I met Andrews at ChocMo. An artist myself,

Fab Spotlight By Marilyn Bode I listened intently to what he had to say about art and what he stresses with his art students. “Art is communicating what is on one’s mind and heart. Like spelling and grammar, once you know the rules you can start saying what it is you have to say.” The father of two young girls he spends late nights painting. “When the impulse strikes, I can’t walk away,” he said. By focusing he schedules time for art and family. His

wife is a stay at home mom and is his toughest critic. He appreciates it when she may say, “I’m not getting it — what are you trying to say? Be clear in your message.” Mary Ryan coordinates the art shows for ChocMo. She said the No. 1 criteria is the artist is a local person. Andrews lives in Silverdale and has taught in the North Kitsap School District for 13 years, starting at Kingston Junior High before moving to the high school. With 20 works hanging in his show, he meets the criteria of having enough to fill the space, and his professionalism and seriousness is shown by his website. Ryan finds Andrews’ work unique and

thought-provoking. ChocMo owner Peter Crabtree turned his chocolate shop student project at West Sound Academy into this bistro, featuring his own artisan chocolates, specialty beers and wines, as well as coffee and light fare. He is committed to featuring and supporting things local including artists. James Andrews is a terrific and inspiring artist and teacher and our FAB Spotlight column often features his students. His students receive scholarships and awards and now we can experience his work. He is a real gift to the richness of our artful life here is North Kitsap.

WSF considering LNG propulsion FERRYFARE N

els Suldan has relieved the evergenteel Paul Lundy on our Ferry Advisory Committee. The MV Skagit, a former Vashon Island ferry, capsized July 18 while running between Tanzania and the island of Zanzibar, killing up to 146 people. Designed for the Gulf of Mexico, Skagit wasn’t a good fit here and was sold off, along with the Kalama, in 2011. Kingston’s June public ferry meeting included the following updates: n Liquid Natural Gas, or LNG, propulsion is being ogled by WSF and BC Ferries to rein in “runaway” fuel costs (surging up 140 percent in six years). The design scheme was approved by the Coast Guard and detailed plans are under way. The first

Kingston Ferry Advisory Committee

Issaquah-class ferry could be converted to LNG by in 2014. By cutting fuel costs 40-50 percent, the conversion would pay for itself by 2021. LNG eradicates sulfur and particulate emissions and knocks nitrous oxide down by 90 percent. This meets foreseeable clean air standards and may also double engine life. WSF will truck LNG in from out of state until a “liquefaction” plant can be set up here. One in five buses nationwide use natural gas and there’s been only one LNG vehicle fire since the 1970s.

Norway has been running LNG ferries since 2000 without incident. The reasons are: 1) Natural gas is less flammable than either gasoline or diesel as it takes a higher temperature and concentration in air burn* and 2) Lighter than air, natural gas dissipates if it leaks. So why the boat gas explosions? Most boat stoves use propane which, being heavier than air, can settle in the bilge and KABOOM! Ventilation is crucial; for example, our LNG tanks will be on the ferry’s upper deck. LNG engines can be new or converted from diesel and operate with either single LNG fuel or “dual fuel.” The latter can run on either diesel or LNG but normally See Ferry, Page 12

found some solace in writing about Robert and remembering the happy times, and she sent me a story I’d like to share. Her title might be “Don’t stop the adventures.”

I

took Robert to his regular primary care doctor’s visit on that Monday. The doctor examined him and then said to me, “In six months he won’t know who you are.” I told the doctor that I thought we had longer, but kept telling myself it is what it is and put on a smile. I didn’t want to distress Robert. This visit to the doctor made me extremely stressed and, coupled with my cabin fever, after a cold, snowy winter, I decided we needed to make the most of the time we had left, before he stopped knowing me. The next morning I saw an advertisement in the morning newspaper for a blues music group that was going to be performing at a local club. Robert and I celebrated our 40th anniversary in New Orleans and I thought this would bring back some wonderful memories, at least for me. The Big Mumbo Band would be at The Bend nightclub and although we hadn’t been “out” to see any of Spokane’s night life for over 25 years, I made the decision that we would go out that Saturday night. Robert knew that something different was happening that night when I had him shower at 7 p.m. and put on the clothes I laid out — his Nero silky shirt and a great jazzy vest that matched. He looked great. The show started at 9

hansville happenings By donna lee anderson p.m. but I wanted to get there a little early. The guy at the front told us there was a cover charge of $3, but as I dug for the money he changed his mind. I think he thought, ‘Here are two old geezers out for a night,’ and he changed the cover to $3 for the both of us. When we walked into the club I realized we should have come earlier. The only place I could see to sit was at a table for four where only a single man sat. I gathered my courage and asked him if we could join him. He said yes; what else could he do? We sat down and I decided I should explain that Robert had Alzheimer’s and after 9 p.m. his conversational skills were challenging. Soon after that his wife joined us. We chatted and realized we had much in common and they became our new best friends. Robert and I ordered virgin Bloody Mary’s that were firecracker hot, so we had to order water too. The music started and

Islands’ commercial traffic, Anacortes-Sidney and Port Townsend reservations were converted to the new system. Next year, all commercial vehicles may get reservations. If all that works, reservations come to Kingston in about 2015. Even with reservations, some room will be saved for the cars that just show up. A deposit is required equal to the senior/disabled fare. It’s refunded if you cancel 24 hours beforehand and, if you miss your reservation, the deposit can be applied to a later sailing. n Construction on a 144-car ferry started in March after more than a decade in planning. The two Olympic Class fer-

we were laughing and chatting when a blond lady — 50ish — came up to our table. She only talked to Robert. She said she saw him come in and he looked so cute. She was smiling widely. I thought she was just being friendly, but then I realized she was hitting on my husband. She asked him to dance. Robert was confused and not really able to follow the conversation, so I said, “Robert, this lady wants to dance with you.” Just a few minutes ago he’d asked me to dance and I’d said we would after the break, when the band started again. He smiled and said, yes, he wanted to dance. The band started again so they did. After all, this was his last adventure maybe. They danced the whole set and Robert was so happy and by now it was 10:30 p.m. and time to take us home. We said good night to our new best friends and went home. The next day I told our son about our adventure and said my cabin fever was over. He listened and then said, “Way to go, Dad. You still got it. Lucky you to get hit on.” I smiled and thought, yes, way to go, Dad. He did better than I thought he would in the crowd and loud music and I was determined not to stop the adventures until ... Now, I say to you, my readers, don’t forget to have some adventures. — Donna Lee Anderson writes Hansville Happenings for the Kingston Community News. Contact her at WellToldTales@aol.com

ries started this year will replace the Evergreen State and Hiyu and will be used in the San Juans, Mukilteo and maybe Bremerton. The well-distributed, single-bid contract is with Seattle’s Vigor (previously Todd) as lead, Whidbey’s Nichols Bros. and Tacoma’s Jesse Engineering. Three 144’s were planned to eventually replace Kingston’s Jumbos, but that was before the boat price ballooned from $87 million to $147 million.

A favorite gathering place remembered A glance At the past By harriet muhrlein

R

oy’s Place, our featured “Glance” this month, was a favorite gathering spot of many in Kingston. Rainier Beer was on tap, food was served, and one could also dance the evening away. Right next door was a café and soda fountain (fondly remembered by some as the original Kingston Inn). This picture and several others were given to the Kingston Historical Society by Tom Waggoner and we thank him deeply for them. Today’s picture shows the approximate location of

the buildings. We don’t have much storage space, but we really welcome snapshots, old identifiable photos, and stories of our past. The Kingston Historical Society meets the fourth Wednesday of the month at the Community Center at 10 a.m. We always welcome guests and really love visitors. The results of the query about North Beach or Saltaire Beach will be reported in September. — Contact historian and columnist Harriet Muhrlein at harrietmuhrlein@comcast.net

efore we get to Rotary, let me back up a couple of years. Susan and I have been in love with Kitsap County since 1979. We wangled a set of orders to Bangor in 1981, bought a house in Central Kitsap and loved it here for four years while our girls were in school. We loved it so much that we kept that house, voted and paid taxes here for the next 23 years while the Navy and NATO kept us mostly overseas. When I retired in 2008, we came “home” to Kitsap County and settled in Kingston. So, we’re “newbies” here. Our priority is to grow roots in this fantastic corner of the world, after almost 40 years of gypsy existence. How does a person grow roots? They get involved in community service! Susan quickly settled on the Kingston Garden Club and has happily co-chaired the last couple of plant sales. Easy for her — gardening has been her passion for years. For me, it’s less easy. I joined the Chamber of Commerce, which seemed an obvious starting place. But I’m not actively “in business” anymore, and that wasn’t the whole answer for me. Rotary offered a community service focus with a strong international

Rotary News By BILL MAULE program. So I joined the Kingston-North Kitsap Rotary Club and really began learning about Rotary International. What the heck is Rotary? Despite its 100-year history, incredible record of achievement, 1.2 million members and 34,000 clubs in more than 200 countries, Rotary International is a mystery to the large majority of our friends and neighbors — even here, where almost everyone of you knows someone who is a Rotarian. Through an incredibly efficient global organization, Rotary converts good intentions into dynamic results at every level, from community sanitation and health services to the global eradication of polio, which will happen next year. Through the Rotary Foundation, hundreds of millions of dollars are put to work every year, around the world, bringing water, sanitation, education, basic human needs and more to those who can’t provide for themselves. Founded more than 100 years ago as a businessmen’s organization providing community services, Rotary

quickly grew in vision and in scope. Business-MEN have for almost 30 years now been Business-PEOPLE, as Rotary enthusiastically incorporates the talents and dedication of our business women. Today, Rotary Clubs are worldwide, and Rotary projects are ongoing wherever there is a need. And Rotary International includes future business people too. Our Interact clubs in high schools and Rotoract clubs in colleges let students work on service projects while they learn, and are an entrée to the business world after graduation. Anyone, in any profession, who wants to make a difference in the world, will find an ideal outlet in Rotary. We are in the business of Building Peace through Service! Kingston-North Kitsap Rotary was founded almost a decade ago. We have about 40 members and our own affiliated Interact Club at Kingston High School. Kingston-North Kitsap Rotary started with a multiyear campaign to build lights at the new KHS field. We raised almost $50,000 for that project. We helped develop the Village Green Park, and are today actively assisting (and financing) the Village Green Foundation’s construction of a new picnic pavilion this summer.

We did renovations on Kola Kole School last year, we will be major contributors to the Village Green Foundation’s Capital Campaign. A number of our members sit on the foundation Board. We award scholarships to KHS seniors. We actively support the local blood drives, food banks and homeless programs and have a $7,000 grant from our Rotary District for the new Coffee Oasis in Poulsbo. With Kingston Kiwanis, we are raising funds for “Food for Kids” for needy elementary school children in Kingston. In addition, we support International programs providing water and sanitation in Africa and Central America, education in Central and South America and wheelchairs for people worldwide. Our fundraisers include our annual Rotary Challenge Golf Tournament, the 4th of July Fun Run (with Kingston Running Club), Concerts on the Cove Beer Garden, and other smaller events through the year. Kingston Rotary is just folks like you, who are making a difference. We meet every Wednesday at noon, at North Kitsap Fire & Rescue on Miller Bay Road, with lunch provided by Little City Catering. Stop by and learn more!

A letter to an American icon D

ear Doris Day, I have this wonderful fantasy that I get to meet you. Actually, in my fantasy, my home state of Washington is on its best behavior, sunny blue skies and green trees vibrant and welcoming. My parents are visiting, my children are home, and there is a knock at the door. I answer it, and it’s you. In my daydream, I introduce myself, and you introduce yourself (because you are so sweet and humble you at least pretend we don’t know who you are). Then I call my mom and daughter from the kitchen, because they are huge fans. “This is my mom, Linda, and my daughter, Cassidy. This is Doris Day.” And then my mom would cry, and Cassidy’s mouth would gape in a delighted smile. And I’d probably cry too, and Ms. Day, you would smile kindly, and watch us. Or maybe you’d make an

exasperated, slightly crosseyed look, I’m not sure. We love your movies. Our favorites are “On Moonlight Bay” (1951), “By the Light of the Silvery Moon” (1953), “It Happened to Jane” (1959), and “Please Don’t Eat the Daisies” (1960). Big-hearted movies about the girl next door, the busy young housewife, the spunky young woman with a dazzling smile and a positive attitude. These stories and characters mean a lot to us. I feel all happy and warm inside when they end. I know some people don’t like to feel warm and happy, but I love it. There are plenty of other movies out there that offer reality, something to think about, grit. I’ll take clean and uplifting any day. Whether your character was decorating an enormous, run-down house in the country, or hosting a Cub Scout pack meeting (serving lobster, of all

Roundabout By denise Roundy things!), you portrayed life as fun and energetic. I choose to relate to your characters. When my daughter spent three months sleeping under a table so she didn’t have to clean her room, I shrugged and laughed. I felt just like Kate McKay in “Please Don’t Eat the Daisies” when her son liked being in a cage. When I’m having fun with my daughters at girls’ camp, I feel like I could be a character in one of your movies.

You helped me view life as fun and adventurous, never dull or gloomy. Or at least, not for long. Personally, your roles I’m fondest of are the sweet, girl-next-door movies, and the mom-with-kids movies. They’re engaging and wholesome and that’s the life that appeals to me. I’ve heard critics say they represent an Americana too virtuous, more perfect and small-town goodness than ever really existed. To that I answer, “Says who?” Sure, every town has its meanness, ugliness, and tragedy, but aren’t there also sweet moments when a nice boy falls in love with the girl next door? Or a curious boy does something like get his head stuck between chair rungs? Or the family’s pet lobster Larry continually gets mixed in with the girl lobsters? (I love that part). If gritty movies are real, I say sweet ones are real too. Nothing wrong with a posi-

tive spin. I hear you turned 88 in April, and you are going by Clara these days. May I call you Clara? So, Ms. Day — Clara? — would you consider stopping by sometime for dinner? If you give me warning, I’ll try to have the house clean. I need a lot of warning, actually. You can meet our pets, as I’ve heard you are an animal lover. I do caution you, we also have kids. We promise not to ask you to sing, or entertain us. We won’t call you America’s Sweetheart, or even ask what it was like making all those wonderful movies. We just want to say hello, and thank you. Let us know if you can come. Fall is a beautiful time in the Pacific Northwest, and you can even enjoy a ferry ride on the way. I hope you can make it. Either way, que sera, sera! Sincerely, Your longtime devotee, Denise Roundy — Check out more from Denise Roundy at thetreesandi.blogspot.com. Contact her at dirkroundy@yahoo.com.

Graduation

Continued from page 10 for getting a job, starting a career, or just as something to do start coming to fruition. More people are learning responsibility and how to behave like adults in the workplace. Those that are taking time off in between high school and college, those that planned vacation, are salivating at how soon it happen. Looking at the calendar and letting the stress go away, because nothings due, nothing needs to be done, this time is theirs to keep and theirs alone. To me, graduation means freedom — freedom from being required to be at school. I will continue going to college, but the choice is there. The possibilities are endless after being given that freedom. — Kyler Lacey is an incoming senior at Kingston High School and a Running Start student at Olympic College.

Nursery employees give back to the community A

t Poulsbo’s Valley Nurser y, magic happened when employees Sue Lukins and Paula Anderson found they were having some similar ideas about how to give back to the community. Lukins had the idea of donating the harvest from the demonstration container garden she created to the local food bank, Fishline. Kelly Knight, who works at both the nursery and ShareNet, suggested they send some down the road as well. “Grow a row� or “plant a row� have become phrases associated with national campaigns encouraging home gardeners and others to think of the food insecurity in many households when they plant their own garden, and to set aside part of their plot for donating. It was a natural fit at Valley Nursery, where Anderson is the public relations director and Lukins is a custom container designer. Lukins, a long-time volunteer at Bainbridge Helpline House, was well aware of

sharenet & you By mark ince how food banks work and the problem of hunger and food affordability in the community. Anderson created a coupon raffle book — five coupons for five raffles — held monthly for such prizes as birdbaths and garden statuary. They sold 333 coupon books during the first month. In the end they raised $1,000 for charity. Their second coupon book goes on sale Aug. 11; proceeds will benefit North Kitsap Fishline and ShareNet. Another employee, Terry Mitchell, had the idea to

dent dog, Cassey, roaming the grounds, and of course some great employees. There’s also that feeling that anything could grow, even in a sun-challenged climate. Dedicated staff members have shown it’s possible to include charitable concerns in a seamless, businessfriendly way and ShareNet appreciates being one of their beneficiaries. Our Back to School Supplies event will be held as usual during the week before school starts. Last year, we fully stocked new backpacks with all new supplies for 130 local kids in need so they could start the school year right. This event and all the extensive prep that goes into it is volunteer-staffed, but contributions are welcome for the backpacks and supplies which must be purchased. We enjoyed seeing all the well-wishers and wavers at Kingston’s 4th of July Parade. Thanks for the support. It was a beautiful 4th and we had a new banner made to deck our participating

use galvanized metal fan boxes for the containers the produce would be grown in. They have also grown in potato bags, which are great heat conductors and have also yielded eggplants, peppers and tomatoes. Their harvest now benefits both Fishline and ShareNet, and even in our short growing season has yielded lettuce, Swiss chard, peas, beans and some of the most beautiful, perfect looking bok choy you’ve ever seen. Frequently, this is a bedraggled-looking vegetable in local stores, possibly because it is shipped far or hangs around not selling, but the bok choy donated to ShareNet could have been photographed for a magazine cover. Many people around the world believe bok choy to be one of the truly foundational vegetables for good health. As shoppers know, Valley Nursery, owned by Brad Watts, is one of those longstanding Kitsap businesses with a homey feeling contributed to by a resident cat, Bizzie, and an almost-resi-

Since we are preparing our home for a fall market, do we need to worry about these numbers? —MJC Dear MJC: Yes, we all got those lovely assessments. And in most areas, the numbers are down per the tax assessor. The way those numbers have affected the market in the last couple of years has been negative.

However, on Kitsap County’s own website, the 2011-12 Sales Price Percentage over Assessed Value Chart which shows the numbers have been going up since about April.

Pastored at Bayside Church since 1982 KINGSTON — Scott and Leilani Montagne announced their resignation July 15 from Bayside Community Church in Kingston, where they have served for the past 30 years.

Just today I received an article from KCAR that quotes Zillow as saying, “The Zillow Home Value Forecast shows in most markets prices will rise modestly over the next year.” Therefore, at some point, the buyers will have to stop looking at the negative numbers and realize that they need to jump on board while they still can as the numbers will be going up. Personally, and I hope I am not wrong, I think that this last assessment won’t hold as much weight as in previous years.

Watch for Burn Bans: As of this writing, fire danger in our area hadn’t yet become a concern due to June and July’s wet and cool weather patterns. However, if summer ever arrives and stays a while, it’s certain that local fire officials will curtail outdoor burning to reduce potential for dangerous wildland blazes. To check if an outdoor burn ban is in effect for our area, check our automated outdoor burn information line at 297-4888, or visit the district’s website, www.nkfr. org.

T

his is an abbreviated summary of the June 6 Kingston Citizens Advisory Council meeting. Special presentation: Sen. Christine Rolfes. Sen. Rolfes shared her 2012 Legislative Report. Highlights of the state’s economy and budget were discussed. The belief is the economy is on a stable low and will pick up over the next two years. There were major budget cuts this past spring totaling about $500 million. The state budget is $31 billion for two years, which does not include transportation or capital investments. Users are paying more for park services to support those programs. Most cuts were in human services. While there were no cuts to education, schools are dealing with serious budget issues. A committee is working on job creation and 15 pieces of legislation served to develop a vision of how the state can be strengthen. The state invested in science and engineering in hopes of training the next generation. There is a very robust

KCAC Notes KINGSTON CITIZENs ADVISORY COUNCIL unemployment fund in Washington state. Effort was made to protect children from budget cuts and the state’s Apple Health for Kids program remains in place. Support continues for our military families. Transportation is a serious issue, with funding for ferries running out in 2014; tax packages are being discussed. School funding is another issue as the Supreme Court ruled legislators are not meeting the minimum requirements for education funding; it is the No. 1 responsibility of the state and much time will be spent on this budgetary challenge. Closing of the Tourism Office was questioned. Rolfes said budgets were scaled back so far that the Tourism Office was undermined. The private sector, it was determined, could do the job better; thus the Washington Tourism Alliance was created. There were cuts in the film industry, which resulted in serious revenue declines so tax incentives are being offered once again. In order to maintain the

passenger ferry, ridership must go up to prove that it is on a path to self-sustainability. Rolfes is working with the Port of Kingston to see what can be done to get more riders on board. Rolfes now has an office in Poulsbo City Hall; her legal assistant works Monday through Thursday and is available to answer any questions. Subcommittee Reports n WSF Committee: Walt Elliott. Legislators approved $300 million in ferry funding from increased fees that closed the gap in operating costs and current fare revenue, and also funded the building of a second 144car ferry. The keel was laid for the first 144-car ferry in March and the second will start in December. These and a third boat will replace boats for service on the San Juan Islands, Bremerton and Mukilteo routes. Performance measures were set by the Legislature. The USCG approved the concept design for retrofit to liquefied natural gas fuel to Issaquah class boats. This will cut fuel costs by 40-50 percent. Phase 1 of the reservation system will be updated this summer. Phase 2 will begin in 2013 or 2014. Senior tickets

should be available online in the near future. n Parks and Open Space: Walt Elliott. The North Kitsap Trails Association collects data on the usage of trails at the Port Gamble area and Heritage Park. A toilet was set up in Arness Park; donations are needed to help with the cost. Commissioner Gelder has decided to keep the Kingston-Eglon trail and small parking area open. Work is under way to build a boardwalk trail across the wet areas by the parking lot at Heritage Park. Work parties continue the second Saturday of the month; meet at the Miller Bay Road entrance. Focus this year is on Scotch broom removal. On Aug. 4, there will be an opening ceremony and dedication of the Kitsap Peninsula Water Trail, from 4-6 p.m. at Mike Wallace Park.

Community Reports Kingston Stakeholders: Dan Martin. Stakeholders met on June 1 and Walt gave them an update on the SoundRunner passenger ferry. A check for $1,000 was written to the Event Committee to support bands; $500 was donated to the Food for Kids Program. n Kingston Port and SoundRunner: Pete DeBoer, Port of Kingston.

There is a new concrete pad in front of the stage. The Port will be applying for an emergency maintenance dredge permit with anticipated costs of $500,000 or more. Sen. Rolfes suggested that, since the Carpenter Creek project came in under budget, there may be funds to address the sedimentation problem. This is being investigated.

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT - James Rockey, Kingston Mail & Print

JOHNNY WALKER Almost Candid Photography

James Rockey purchased Kingston Mail & Print July 1, 2012. At just 20 years old, this is not only his first business venture but his first paying job. He grew up in the Kent area and moved to Kingston a year ago to be closer to his father. When asked why he wanted to own a business at such a young age he said “I was applying for jobs I didn’t really want and wasn’t getting hired for anyway so when this business became available for purchase I decided why not? There’s nothing to stop me or even slow me down. I like being my own boss and I think I will probably own several more businesses in the future.” Our new Patron Member joined the chamber to get involved with the community and learn as much about business as he can from other small business owners. You may not have met James yet, but perhaps you saw him in his hilarious “Boxman” costume at the Kingston 4th

Pie in the Park is the “down home” fundraiser for the Village Green Foundation. Now in its 4th year, it has become one of Kingston’s most well attended events. It works like this: Two identical pies are supplied by local bakers (commercial and homebased) who pride themselves on their pie recipes. One pie is for tasting and the other is to be auctioned. Folks are invited to sample as many pies as they like. After the tastings, a spirited auction takes place. Where else do you see people pay $500 for a pie? An amazing $5,000 was earned the first year, which was matched by a $5,000 in-kind donation from the park’s architect. The second year netted $10,000 and last year an amazing $14,000 was raised. This year there will also be a children’s pie eating contest and Rotary’s new picnic pavilion, which is currently under construction, will be dedicated that evening. Clint Boxman acts as auctioneer and many local political entities and Kitsap Regional Library staff participate in the event. Feeling competitive? Sign up to donate a pie today! shredpath@centurylink.net

Can ticketing by law enforcement go too far? T

this ‘n’ that By jacque thornton

here are times when the legality of laws and policies strike all of us as a “situation impossible” (one of my own expressions). On June 25, our daughter, Donna, experienced just such a situation after an unusual and serious illness brought on by a cat scratch over a tendon in her right hand. It may sound like a simple soap-and-water cleanse and dab of antiseptic should take care of it. Not always so.

Daughter left for the office that morning with a painful swelling in her right hand, which was turning purple in color. Arriving at work, the intention was to call her Group Health doctor a few blocks away in Poulsbo. The hand continued getting more swollen and hurting far worse and she was feeling not herself. The clinic said come in immediately. Animal bites and scratches are considered dangerous if an infection gets into

the wound. She managed to drive to the clinic to find the nearest parking was in front in the handicap zone. By then the pain was confusing her thought process and she was ready to pass out. Not wanting to cause an accident she pulled into the handicap parking, almost too light-headed to walk inside. It was a real emergency and she was seen immediately. The infection had advanced very quickly. It

is not just fear of an infection from an animal, but of a disease being transmitted, and also the fear of the flesh-eating MRSA bacteria. After tests and treatment, powerful antibiotics were prescribed with the possibility of her ending up in the hospital if they did not work. Her next unhappy news was to find a $450 ticket on her car for parking in the handicap site. She pulled in to that spot because physically she could not go any

further to find another parking place. Her condition could have been the cause of an accident had she not had the wits to be cautious.

Find your mountain lion to get to the root of recurring pain My problem is that after all these years of going to a good chiropractor, I became very sensitive about when I have a subluxation. It was like this external force was helping me and had become an addiction. Then I suffered when I didn’t have it. What do you recommend about this? Regards, Pablo — Comment received on “DoItYourselfChiropractic,” SpinalColumnBlog.com

I

hear this concern every once in a while. And while I’m sympathetic to his situation, I feel that painting chiropractic as an “addiction” not only casts

the profession in a bad light, but — more importantly — does not address the true nature of his problem. Each of our bodies has an incredible inborn intelligence that enables us to adapt to the multitude of stressors that we inevitably encounter each day. Most of the time, our bodies readily engage in this “dance of life” without issue. It’s when these stresses become chronic and overbearing that our bodies resort to adaptations that grab our attention (i.e. they produce symptoms). Often these adaptations are a requirement for vital, bodily functioning to continue —

Seeking Waterfront?

spinal Column By thomas lamar, d.c. even if it means the adaptation is not ideal for the longterm health of the body. Imagine for a moment that a mountain lion was suddenly dropped in front of you. Your body would appropriately respond in a multitude of ways, one of which would be a sudden

increase in blood pressure. And while we typically think of “high blood pressure” as a bad thing, it’s not in this situation. It’s an intelligent adaptation. Assuming the mountain lion doesn’t eat you, what if it never goes away? You join the 68 million Americans battling high blood pressure and might begin to perceive yourself as “addicted” to pills that control it. So what’s the difference between someone who chooses to see their chiropractor for wellness care versus someone who feels “addicted” to their chiropractor? They both frequent the chiropractor on a regular basis, but their purpose for being there is completely different. The wellness patient has adopted chiropractic as part of a healthy

lifestyle choice and uses it to maintain optimal nervous system performance in an effort to enjoy life to its fullest. The person who feels “addicted,” on the other hand, is someone who continues to exhibit the same painful, and sometime debilitating, subluxation pattern time after time, despite repeated chiropractic adjustments. For this person to see true “correction,” they need to delve deeper with their chiropractor to get to the root of the problem — to find their “mountain lion.” Is there an issue with the way they sit or conduct certain activities that is prompting their bodies to adapt these chronic subluxation patterns? Are they facing great emotional or demand-

ing loads of stress that cause their body to respond in this way? Or, on a chemical level, does their diet need adjusting? Until these deeper, and often less obvious, “subluxations” are uncovered and addressed — or at least acknowledged — the “chiropractic addict” will never move toward a higher state of wellness. Instead, they will just keep using their chiropractor as an “Advil with Arms” and treating the subluxation as an ongoing, recurring symptom. — Dr. Thomas R.

Celebrating the baptism of the twins W

e recently had a lot to celebrate: Our 10-year anniversary and, most importantly, the baptism of the twins. It was beautiful and so meaningful to our entire family. Over their incubator, I prayed down upon each of them. At the beginning, anytime I would hear a beep or a buzz, I would feel my heart drop to the bottom of my tummy. I would reach in and handhold one of them at a time, always longing for the time that I could hold them and be with them at the same time. Baby B was never able to be held for very long, all the way until the end of his stay. It would just be way too much for him. Baby F would just lay on me and cuddle. He still loves to cuddle. Anyway, when I would handhold them, I would pray with everything I had in me, with my entire being and my entire soul. One day, when both of my boys were having a pretty hard day — a really hard day on this mama — I prayed that I would raise them in a walk and relationship with God. Now, until this I hadn’t been to great with my own walk with God. It had been a number of years that I had turned my back and walked the other way all together. The reason now doesn’t make sense, but this is what I thought at the time: I was so overwhelmed with being childless, and not having a baby to call my own to hold

Kingston girl By Stacey Goodrich close and to love was at times to much for me to bare. I was angry with God because of that, so hurt and upset that I walked away from all my beliefs. I now know that this is what he needed me to go through to come back. The first day that they were in the NICU I went to the Chapel at the hospital. From then on I was there everyday, sometimes more then once. I prayed one day so hard, in that prayer I prayed this: Heavenly Father, I pray that you will save my babies, that you will show me how to parent and be the best mommy to the

However, she did not realize that in a matter of minutes conditions can change. Now the question: Should she be called “responsible” or “irresponsible”? She didn’t know something so seemingly simple as a scratch could turn into a lifethreatening condition that impaired physical action at a critical moment. Should her decision to park where she did be considered an infraction of law to the tune of $450? If you were the judge on an appeal, what would your decision be? And, by the way, at this time Donna is still under observation by her doctor to be

I promise that I will raise them up to love you and honor you Lord, I promise that they will be children of God and I will show them by the way I live my life in a way that will honor you, Lord. Please just save their lives. I couldn’t imagine what I would do if they were taken from me now. I don’t think I could make it through that great of loss. I don’t think you, Lord, would make it possible to have these babies created from Hubs and I, carried by Chrystal, bringing families closer and truly showing people the great love our family has for one another.

Please, Lord, allow me to raise my beautiful boys for them to be men of God. They are made to do great things. The first thing I will do when they are strong enough is to have them be celebrated as your children at their baptism. Please, Lord, just make them live. In Jesus name, Amen.

sure the infection, while healing finally, hasn’t sent some bad bacteria to other parts of the body. So our advice is, do

be careful of any bites or scratches you may receive from your animals and see your physician right away if it does not look normal.

Time passed and they got strong enough for me to start planning their baptism. I didn’t ask that God would make them perfect, I prayed He would save them. No matter what, they will always be perfect to me. Having them at the NICU made me remember my walk with God. It made me the person I use to be, before I was sick, before I turned into someone I wasn’t that proud of. I didn’t

know how different I was without God or my boys. Pastor Coe from Grace Lutheran Church in Port Townsend was amazing to our boys and to our family. The entire service was centered around the boys and their goals we have for them. We were so welcomed and so loved. The entire church was so warm and inviting. One thing I didn’t know at the time was that we would find a church to call home. We will take the boys to this church and celebrate milestones and moments in our lives as a family. Hubs will have Sundays off this summer so we are going to

go up as much as we can to attend our church. The godparents were chosen for the love they have showed our boys sense even before they were born. Baby F’s godparents are Bon and Chrystal, and Baby B’s is Erin and Allie. The only sister that was left out is Kerry and she is the best auntie in the world. Truth be told, my boys are so blessed with the family that they were born into. All the love they have for them is amazing. This event made us all so much closer. I can’t wait to cross the next event and milestone off the baby bucket list.

Record set, $2,000 raised for uveitis research By KIPP ROBERTSON

Staff Writer

KINGSTON — Ross McCurdy may have set a new world record for the longest self-thrown grape catch July 7. The record awaits verification by Guinness World Records. One thing is for sure, though — McCurdy’s effort raised more than $2,000 for uveitis research. McCurdy said the amount raised was a surprise. “We did not expect that,” he said. And money is still being raised at the Oak Table Cafe, the Kingston restaurant owned by McCurdy and his wife, Nicole. The fundraiser was held at Kola Kole Park. McCurdy threw a grape forward into the air, sprinted and caught it in his mouth. His pending record was measured at 68 feet 1 inch. The current record, held by Ashrita Furman of New York, is 28 feet 2 inches. It may be a while before

McCurdy finds out if his mark set the new record. He holds the world record for most eggs — 32 — cracked in one minute with one hand behind his back. He said it took about three weeks for Guinness to verify the record and send him a plaque. The grape-catch attempt was not without its hiccups. At one point, McCurdy accidentally ran into a TV news cameraman, putting a limp in his step. Despite the injury, he may have broken the world record by 40 feet. McCurdy’s 7-year-old daughter, Mira, has uveitis. It’s something she and her family have dealt with since she began treatment for junior rheumatoid arthritis. Uveitis is swelling and irritation of the center of the eye, or uvea. The uvea supplies blood to the retina. If not treated it can lead to blindness, and is the third-leading cause of blindness. Up to 80 percent of all

childhood uveitis cases are associated with junior rheumatoid arthritis, according to the American Uveitis Society. In a previous interview,

McCurdy said his family wants to raise money for the Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Foundation so “the next little girl that comes along with it will have an

easier time.” McCurdy would like to see the fundraiser become an annual event, though it might not always include an attempt to set a world

record. McCurdy’s next record attempts include making the tallest stack of buttermilk pancakes and doing the tallest standing-box jump.

Wrestling Academy opens for year-round training By KIPP ROBERTSON

Staff Writer

KINGSTON — Setting up and breaking down wrestling mats was a daunting task for the coaches of the Kingston Outlaws wrestling club. Borrowing space at local schools was limiting, and, while it was appreciated, did not reflect what the Outlaws program was about. That’s changing, however, as local wrestlers and coaches celebrate the opening of the Kingston Wrestling Academy. “Having your own room, let alone an academy, brings your wrestling to the next tier,” Outlaws coach Joe Haselberger said on the bottom floor of the new academy. The Kingston Wrestling Academy, 5654 NE Minder Road, in the Kennedy Business Park, held its grand opening July 6. The academy will be the home of the Kingston Outlaws and will offer Les Mills BODYCOMBAT. Other club wrestling, such as Big Dawgs, will be able to hold practices there as

well. The facility has two levels, which allows multiple classes and/or skill levels to train at once. Greco-Roman, freestyle and folkstyle (collegiate) wrestling will be offered at different times throughout the year. As a year-round facility, it will offer wrestlers with more opportunity to practice. “There are not a lot of wrestling academies running in the off-season,” owner and coach Bobby Reece said. “The best wrestlers in the state and the country are training yearround.” Though the academy may look Kingston-oriented, the academy is open to all wrestlers. The Outlaws program,

He doesn’t want to see high school wrestlers, such as Jordan Rogers from Mead High School, seek opportunities out-of-state. Rogers, a threetime state champion, signed to Oklahoma State. Reece has wanted to run an academy before he began coaching in public schools. As the head coach of the Kingston High School wrestling program, working at the schools has created opportunities. Those wrestlers from KHS, at least those dedicated enough, will be seen wrestling at the academy in the off-season. The academy is family run and owned. Along with Haselberger and Reece coaching, wives DeAnna Reece and Misty Haselberger are fully involved as well. The two helped kick off the grand opening of the academy with a BODYCOMBAT demonstration; DeAnna will

Novick said the Bucs bought in to what the coaches were trying to teach them and now have a solid foundation. Working at Ridgetop will bring his family closer together, Novick said. His wife works in the district and his children will attend school there. Novick will not coach, but he said coaches make the best teachers. His new position will allow him to work with students in a different capacity and impact their lives earlier in life. Novick had hoped the district would hire his successor from within. He said there were plenty of choices within the school to choose from. Though Novick will no longer be a Buccaneer, he will keep up-to-date on his old team. “I’ll be their biggest fan,” Novick said.

Shout-outs from the Farmers Market, music lineup T

he veggies are in! And hand-poured chocolates and organic USDA-certified eggs and flowers and artisan cheese and soda and smoked fish and breads and local wine in bio-degradable containers — August really is the farmers market month! In Kingston, we are blessed to have so many local producers bringing their goods to our beautiful marina park. A special thank you to the Port of Kingston for the landscaping and care that embellish

our home. During July, we enjoyed several special events: the Fourth of July Market, the annual Christmas in July to raise money for our local food banks (thank you to each of the generous market vendors who donated to the raffle baskets), the North Kitsap Arts & Crafts Festival (this was a strong collaboration between the Market and the Festival that benefited everyone), and one Saturday, belly dancing on the stage during music intermission. You never

annual postcard art. This year, we had 150-plus student entries, which we had to winnow to 22 for printing. You can purchase the postcards at the Market Information Booth and view even more on the Market’s website. The second shout-out is to the Kingston Library for story hour 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on any Saturday when it isn’t pouring rain! Thank you!

The Malibu’s occupant was trapped inside. The dog was on the side of the roadway; it is unknown whether it was ejected during the crash or crawled out afterward. Once firefighters stabilized the vehicles using special struts, they were able to quickly extricate
