Commissioners vote yes on jail workers contract

More pay and better benefits for Corrections Guild By KEVAN MOORE

Jack Winegar plays “Taps” while standing in front of two steel beams recovered from the World Trade Center wreckage following the 9/11 attacks in New York. The beams are destined to become the centerpiece of the Kitsap 9/11 Memorial .

9/11 remembered Kitsap 9/11 Memorial Committee hosts survivor of North Tower, promises work will begin By Greg Skinner

Earl Johnson said there was little panic in the stairwell in the North Tower of the World Trade Center as people helped each other down the packed escape route and through the horror that followed American Airlines Flight 11’s crash into the iconic tower. “[I] just focused on the step in front of me and then to take them one at a time,” said the Poulsbo resident. Johnson was at work on the 54th floor when the first plan hit at 8:46 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001. “I’m one of the very lucky ones,” he said, referring to 2,997 souls that perished in the buildings and in the aftermath of the attacks. At the end of that horrible day, Johnson got to go home, be a dad and have a second chance at life. Standing before a collection of local firemen, public officials and

a large contingent of American veterans’ motorcycle organizations gathered Tuesday evening to honor the 11th anniversary of 9/11 in Bremerton’s Evergreen Rotary Park, Johnson pointed behind him to the site of the future $300,000 Kitsap 9/11 Memorial and asked the community to give money, time or services to help build it. “There are so many people involved in this. It’s the most beautiful thing in the world,” he said. “We need you.” Yet, after the event, three donations jars positioned strategically near reminders of the attack, sat moslty empty. Johnson’s speech was one of several that included the presentation of the Colors, remarks by Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent and Monroe Washington resident and United Airlines pilot Larry McDonough. The hourlong remembrance also included a performance of “God Bless America”

by the Kitsap Cordsmen. McDonough spoke of the changes to the airline industry following the attacks and of a fellow pilot he knew that was killed when the 19 terrorists executed the Al Qaeda planned attack. He spoke in honor of the 33 airline industry professionals that died that day. Speaking before delivering a prayer, Mike “Poet” Carroll, National Chaplain Combat Veterans International, said that efforts to memorialize the first responders’ self less efforts to save those they could, such as the Kitsap 9/11 Memorial, help keep their memories alive. The real heroes in America are not movie stars and athletes but rather the nation’s first responders, such as Bremerton’s “Trooper Tony” and the four Lakewood police officers gunned down in a coffee shop in 2010, he said. “We will never forget,” Carroll said. “Life is precious and freedom isn’t free, it’s expensive.” Speaking of the planned memoSee 9/11, A11

Kitsap Week Illinoisan Bob Lee shares his cycling cause across the West Inside

Commissioners this week formally approved a collective bargaining agreement with the Kitsap County Corrections Guild following an arbitrator’s ruling in early June. A formal agreement was reached before county leaders knew what the final cost would be. Budget crunchers at the coun-

ty later determined that the net cost to the county’s general budget will be $162,410, with the lion’s share of those cost increases — $109,993 — eaten up by expanded health benefits for jail staff and their families. The final cost figures were only made publicly available a couple of hours prior to the Board of County Commissioner’s unanimous approval of the contract without public comment in the consent agenda during Monday night’s business meeting.

County budget crunching underway

Sheriff asks for 900K increase in 2013, auditor seeks $225,000 more By KEVAN MOORE

Kitsap County’s budget review committee swung into full gear this week and will continue to meet on a near daily basis leading up to a budget open house from 2 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 19. The hearings and open house are a chance for the Board of County Commissioners and the public to hear

from each of the county’s various departments regarding their 2013 budget requests. Back in July, a budget call letter was sent to department heads that noted an $11.5 million reduction in revenue over the last five years. “While 2013 does not promise much improvement, all indicators point toward stability,” wrote Amber D’Amato, the county’s director of administrative services. “Sales tax dollars are coming in steadily and are no longer in the downward spiral seen from 2007 through 2011.

Shoreline development plans draw concern from waterfront homeowners By KEVAN MOORE

As the City of Bremerton moves closer and closer to finalizing it’s updated Shoreline Master Program, regulating the use and devel-

opment of waterfront property, one of the more contentious issues has to do with classifying shoreline residences as conforming or nonconforming. Non-conforming properties generally are

ones that were developed in compliance under old rules, but no longer meet today’s standards. Such properties are often referred to as being “grandfathered” in. As such, certain properties that are non-conform-

ing are considered to be perfectly legal, but after a year of being empty would have to meet modern standards and be brought into what is known as “eventual compliance.” “Since Bremerton is old, I would guess that 50 percent of the structures in Bremerton are non-conforming in some way,” said city planner Nicole Floyd. When it comes to shoreline residences, though, the way that a property is labelled has led to growing concern over what terminology

Friday, September 14, 2012

is used. Folks opposed to calling a home nonconforming say that such a move will impact resales, the ability to get a home loan and restrict the ability to do maintenance. Floyd said that studies show that non-conforming homes are, indeed, sellable and that the country’s leading lenders, Freddie Mac and Fannie May, regularly approve loans for grandfathered residences. Floyd said when lenders talk about “non-conforming,” they are more likely to be talking about people, not

properties. Those “nonconforming” people are ones that have bad credit, a history of foreclosure or those who apply for more money than lenders allow. “In general, what I’ve found is, lenders won’t lend to a non-conforming person and require additional paperwork for a non-conforming property,” Floyd said. But, several current waterfront homeowners are still leery of the language and spoke up during a hearing last week. See SHORELINE, A10

City approves Park Avenue Plaza project sale Apartments to be built atop theater parking garage


Despite some last-minute concerns about possible parking issues, the Bremerton City Council unanimously approved a development agreement with the Park Avenue Plaza project and Lorax Partners LLC.

The updated agreement, several years in the making, paves the way for Lorax to build a 70-unit apartment complex next to the new downtown SEEFilm Bremerton Cinema. The apartments are seen as a capstone to the massive economic revitalization project between 4th and Burwell streets from Pacific to Park Avenues. Lorax has until 2015 to begin the project or sell its development rights to a third party. “We’re hopeful that will occur relatively soon, but with the vaga-

ries of development, they have up to four years,” said city project consultant Gary Sexton. Sexton told the city council that Lorax was also asking for a reduction in parking requirements from 70 spots to 50 spots on a monthly lease basis in the recently completed 250-slot garage that will eventually be under the apartments. The last minute change to the parking agreement was only made available 15 minutes prior to the start of the city council meeting. Councilmember Greg

Wheller said the timing gave him pause. Sexton said that not having an agreeable parking agreement was a deal-breaker for the project. “I’m not sure why this needs to be controversial because if the apartment owner is not going to use that particular space, then it’s available to the public at a potentially higher rate if our garage is in higher demand,” said Councilman Eric Younger. Sexton agreed and noted that the whole concept for parking, from the beginning of the project,

was to have enough flexibility to serve the shipyard, theater-goers, residents and businesses. “We have had a huge shortage of parking for businesses downtown that have never had parking,” Sexton said, noting that having more flexibility and less demand from housing units on those stalls will be a good thing in the long run. The council eventually voted unanimously to approve the purchase and sale agreement and authorized future negotiations on the parking agreement.

Grant helps students dream of space By Patrick McDonough

A recent award of a $129,000 STEM grant to Olympic College will assist a program that helps students enter careers in the scientific fields. The STEM, or Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, grant will go to help the college’s MESA program. The MESA Program, or Mathematics, Science, Eng i neer i ng a nd Achievement, assists some STEM students who statistics show are underrepresented in STEM fields such as women, low-income students and those who are the first in their families to attend college. The MESA program is funded through the National Science Foundation and is run by OC program manager and instructor Jodi Carson. For Olympic College student Diana Biedenbach the recent award of the grant to the college will help her reach her dream of making the world a better place. Biedenbach said she plans to earn her associate of science degree from the college and then attend the University of Washington’s civil engineering program. She said she plans to work in the area of water quality to ensure that people have safe clean water. “I just want to help people and make the world a better place,” Biedenbach said. Carson earned her PhD in civil engineering and said she knows the difficulties that young people like Biedenbach face in entering STEM related fields. “As a female civil engineer who also attended a community college in Washington State, I can relate to a lot of the aspects of these programs and See SPACE, A6 |

Consent publicly IN OUR OPINION

The decision by the Kitsap County Board of County Commissioners to approve a backdated contract with workers at the Kitsap County Corrections and Detention Center under the consent agenda during Monday’s regular business meeting was inappropriate and gives a poor appearance and lacks transparency as the next troubled budget year approaches and the election nears. The consent agenda is a place to group routine actions such as routine bill paying, lesser money shuffling and appointments to lesser boards and committees. It’s place to bundle items the board feels do not require public comment on their part before a single vote approves multiple actions. While the set-up action to pass the agreement without board comment was indeed legal, the use of the consent agenda as such further illustrates the BOCC’s desire to spend less time explaining themselves and their actions to the public in a public setting. While it is true that there were few members of the general public in attendance Monday to hear the BOCC explain, had they done so, why commissioners voted yes without previously making public the full costs of the contract, there is no way to know how many were at home watching on cable also without explanation. Using the consent agenda in the manner as done by the BOCC Monday does not automatically cry out foul play nor does it indicate nefarious motives. On the other hand, it joins past attempts to ease the BOCCs workload and better maintain bankers hours. With two seats up for election in November, those members wasted a chance to explain their leadership in the contract process to voters. We believe that the tax payers of Kitsap County deserve to hear an official for-the-record public comment from members of the BOCC when they legally commit the county to increase expenses by $162,000 following labor negotiations with employees.

The second piece of the original announcement talked about a contract that students will be asked to sign regarding use. As of now, students have only been told what is appropriate use of their personal equipment is. Nothing in the way of information or guidelines has made its way home to parents. Nothing about this new policy has been listed on the district or individual school website. As a West Hills Parent, I am at a complete loss on what this new policy is or even means. I’m also concerned about what students will or will not be able to access on the internet at school. What I allow and find to be appropriate content for my child and have password protected on the devices he accesses, may or may not be what other parents restrict or allow. The whole thing begs a few questions such as what is going to be passed around on school property and school time? And, what are the boundaries and consequences going to be? This is a great idea that needed better preparation, planning and information access before implementation. I look forward to seeing, hearing and understanding what the school district and the schools distribute to parents about this new policy in the coming days and weeks. The information will better prepare a parent and “consumer” to best decide if and what type of devices go to school with a child.

to as the Community War Chest. In 1947 the Bremerton Community Fund became the Kitsap County Community Chest. By 1948 more than 1,000 communities nationwide had established Community Chest (United Way) organizations. In 1954, Kitsap County Community Chest became known as United Good Neighbors and established the first unified federated campaign for Kitsap County. By 1967 United Way campaigns across the country raised more than $700 million dollars despite work shortages (similar to today) and civil unrest. United Way helped 27.5 million families, 31,300 agencies were members; 8.5 million people were volunteering; and 32.8 million people made donations.

Alternative school to help students rise from challenges through Friday with each session including four class periods. Credits will be offered in English, math, social studies, science and career technical education. The academics involved would offer all required curriculum to prepare students for state assessments and students would earn credits through testing. Glaser said the flexibility of the schedule could help students who are facing challenges beyond their education. “A lot of the kids we are talking about are potentially couch surfing,” she said. “And we know that their first thought every day is not getting their education. For some students a half day is all they can commit to, especially if they are working to support themselves or their families.” Kristen Morga, principal of the school as well as Renaissance High School in the district, said the Phoenix Academy had been created to meet the needs of such students and others who struggle. She said other students,

By Patrick McDonough

The Bremerton School District opened the doors of the new Phoenix Academy and officials hope the school will attract students who might not otherwise graduate. The school is to be housed in the former Francis Haddon Morgan Center, which the district will rent from the Department of Social and Health Services, and will offer a contractbased alternative learning option for ninth- and tenthgrade students who have stopped attending school. Bremerton School District Spokeswoman Patty Glaser said the goal of the academy is to bring such students back into an educational environment with alternative options. “Our goal is to re-attract students that were in the district but not currently going to school,” she said. Students of the Academy will attend a session from 9 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. or an afternoon session from 11:45 a.m. to 3:35 p.m. Monday

The Bremerton School District will open its new Phoenix Academy for the upcoming school year. The academy focuses on students who are not attending school and offers them a flexible alternative learning environment to help them graduate. such as those who have fallen behind in school and some students with medical conditions, could also find the flexible schedule helpful. While the Renaissance High School offers assistance for older students, Morga said the Phoenix Academy would assist younger students. “We just saw a need for the

ninth- and tenth-grade program,” she said. “It is similar in structure in Renaissance, but for younger students.” Morga said ninth grade is the year students begin earning credits for graduation. She said the school met a need that Renaissance did not but said she felt the two schools could work in tandem for many students.

“I think some kids from Phoenix will go to Renaissance,” she said. “My guess is they will be confident in an alternative setting and a transition to Renaissance would be easier for them.” Morga said the Phoenix Academy was centered on life skills and flexibility but also prepared students for

a transition to schools such as Renaissance where college and career preparedness are primary goals. The school will offer smaller class sizes and focus on attendance, attitude and academics. Terms will be four weeks in length and Individual appointments to evaluate progress will be required at the end of each term. An advisory class of teachers and peers will be held each week to assure proper progress is made by students. Morga said The Phoenix Academy will be accepting registration for students throughout the entire year and she hoped students would take advantage of the opportunities the school offered students. “Students are always welcome back to school, we are happy to see them,” Morga said. “Especially our kids that deal with homelessness or drug impacted families or go hungry. They need our help seeing the path to their future.” For more information on the Phoenix Academy or to register for the school call 360-473-1003.

ues to survive and meet obligated debt service requirements in the near term, but with no additional capacity for any new projects.” Commissioner Rob Gelder said this week that the financial situation may be stabilizing, but the county isn’t out of the woods. “In my opinion, what we’re projecting isn’t enough to say we’re back to five years ago,” Gelder said. “We’re still, if anything, looking to move forward without having to have for the first time |

a conversation about cuts in a number of years. So, let’s be responsible about what we do. What can we build back to that we haven’t been able to do previously?” Gelder said the budget hearings will be an opportunity hammer out details and have candid conversations about department budget requests for 2013 following the July call letter. “When people submitted their final budgets, some people took that as an opportunity or a signal that they should ask for more, which is fine,” he said. “That’s part of the process and what we’ll be going through as part of the budget hearings.

We’ll be saying, ‘Okay, what are you asking for, because you have to be able to justify it.’ “ Two budget requests that are sure to get considerable attention in the coming weeks and months are a $934,133 increase from the sheriff ’s office and a $226,000 increase at the auditor’s office. The sheriff ’s office is seeking the additional money to pay for equipment upgrades at the jail, including the LiveScan system used for fingerprinting suspects at a cost of $191,000; $50,000 worth of renovations at the sheriff ’s Silverdale office; reclassifications and raises for several

employees; an increase in medical costs for inmates and kitchen upgrades at the jail; and more. Calls to the sheriff ’s office and auditor seeking comment on their budget requests were not returned. The increased request from the auditor is in large part a reflection of the desire to hire a county-wide internal auditor, a move that has been talked about at the county’s finance committee. “I think it’s a good role to have in any large organization,” Gelder said

of having a county-wide internal auditor. “When you have so many systems and processes and everybody’s kind of doing it sort of differently, to have one point of contact to be able to look at that and review it and say where are the efficiencies we can get and where are some of the systems maybe not working, could be a good thing. What are we doing well and what can we do better?” Gelder said that while having a county-wide internal auditor might make sense, it could be a

tricky position to establish. “That position would report to one separately elected official and the question is how would they relate to all of the other separately elected officials?” Gelder said. So far, the plan appears to have the new position be part of the auditor’s office, but report directly to the county’s finance committee. The auditor is also asking for an additional office assistant for the pet licensing program.


will see another 1.2 percent increase starting December 1. The county has also agreed to pay for the first 10 percent of any increase over 2011 premium contributions for guild medical coverage in 2012. Guild members will continue to receive 100 percent dental coverage and their dependents will see a 10 percent increase for dental coverage. During arbitration, the guild had asked for much more and officials estimated that the fiscal impact could have been potentially been over $1.5 million. The June arbitration ruling was issued by a panel appointed by the Washington Public Employment Commission that was chaired by Oregon resident Howell L. Lankford.

While the panel ruled favorably on the new pay increases, it sided with the county in denying any retroactive increases since the guild’s contract expired in 2009. The cost of those retroactive increases for 2010 and 2011 -- a time period when many county employees took pay freezes, furlough days and made other concessions -- could have been substantial. The panel, though, did approve the guild’s comp time cap proposal, increasing it from 60 hours to 80 hours In addition, the panel denied a guild request for longevity pay and more “premium holidays.” The guild also asked for a 50 percent sick leave cashout, but the panel only awarded 25 percent.


county’s director of personnel and human services, said calculating the costs of the new agreement took longer than he would have liked. Furuta said that the work was complicated by the fact that each employee and their dependents had to be looked at on a caseby-case basis to determine dental and medical coverage, cost of living adjustments and more. “The actual contract itself was already signed off and agreed to, all we were looking for was the final cost,” Furuta said. Under the new contract, corrections guild members got a 2 percent increase in pay beginning July 1 and they

“The only time that these restrictions really kick in is when people want to improve their property,” said Bremerton waterfront resident Alan Beam. “I don’t think the intent of this board is to restrict people wanting to improve their property. I would think you’d want to encourage them to make improvements.” William Palmer, a land-use planning consultant and president of the Kitsap Alliance of Property Owners

(KAPO), also spoke out against using nonconforming language in the Shoreline Master Program. “If you designate something nonconforming, it’s supposed to go away,” Palmer said. “It may not go away right away, but it’s supposed to go away eventually. How long that eventually is, depends on what people can do to preserve their existing non-conforming status.” Palmer also urged the city council to take a closer look at existing zoning regulations before adopting non-conforming lan-

guage when it comes to shorelines. “I think that you ought to look seriously at changing the regulations in your zoning ordinance so you don’t have to say we’ve gotta be consistent with zoning in our shoreline master program when maybe the real problem is in your zoning ordinance.” Jackie Rossworn, a county resident who has owned shoreline property for 34 years and serves as the executive director of KAPO, also testified against using non-conforming language in the city’s Shoreline Master

Program. “I think the worst thing that could happen is to have your home considered non-conforming and that is why the Kitsap Alliance went to the effort of having more than 1,000 people sign a petition to our county commissioners to make our homes conforming and they did that,” Rossworn said. Teresa Osinski, an executive vice president of the Homebuilders Association of Kitsap County, also spoke against using non-conforming language in the city’s Shoreline Master

Program and urged the city council to get hard data before making any decision one way or the other. “If you have not been presented with the data, if you do not know exactly how many properties are now going to become non-conforming in some form — whether you change the name or don’t change the name or make them legal or whatever you’re going to do — I really believe you’re not doing your due diligence

A final public hearing is slated for October 3.

rial to be built, Lent described the arrival of the two steel beams that Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue acquired from the collapsed towers and read a locally written poem commemorating their arrival in a tattered flag before she stepped aside for Johnson. Since the beam’s arrival, the memorial committee has raised more than $140,000 and recently said they have $80,000 remaining in the bank for the project that is required as part of the conditions of CKFR’s receipt of the beams. Now two years behind schedule, an estimated additional $300,000 in work to prepare the site for the memorial is needed and remains largely unfunded. City leaders have promised to not spend public money on the memorial, which was approved by the city council unanimously without plans or cost estimates. Opening the 11th anniversary ceremony and speaking for the Kitsap 9/11 Memorial Committee, Corrine Beach announced that work would soon begin to prepare the site with grading work and seeding. “We will begin to build the memorial,” Beach said. City Councilmember Greg Wheeler later explained that the work Beach referred to was part of an agreement with the Department of Ecology to clean up industrial contamination at the memorial site, which was formerly known as the Chevron Property. The DOE required that the city cap the site, and the grading and seeding counts, he said. Money to pay for the work largely comes from the DOE cleanup grant, but does require the city to pay 10 percent. Wheeler said the memorial committee is going to pay the city’s portion in a deal worked out between the memorial committee, Lent and the Department of Public Works that he described as a shining example of public private partnership. “It gets them started and fulfills our responsibility,” Wheeler said. “It’s a great tribute to first responders.”

Library users take advantage of internet connections at the Silverdale library. The Kitsap Regional Library recently upgraded its internet connections to help user and to save money. connect to the Sylvan Way branch through a 100 megabit fiber network. Sue Whitford, Director of IT and Facilities for the

Kitsap Regional Library, said the fiber connections were also augmented by wireless connections. “We’ve redesigned our net-

tiveness of the network and deals made with local cable providers. Melody Eisler, Branch Manager of the Silverdale Library, said patrons appreciated the library’s efforts to stay current in internet technology. “Our computers are very well used by our patrons,” Eisler said. “I know patrons appreciate the increased speeds.” Eisler said for some patrons the library is the only place they can connect to the internet. “Part of it is the digital divide,” She said. “Not everyone has a computer at home.” Steve Grasser is a library patron who takes advantage of the internet at the Silverdale Library. He said

the library is the only place he has to connect to the internet. “I’m a low-tech guy,” Grasser said. “I don’t own a computer and it’s nice they have computers for me to use.” Grasser said that besides allowing him the use of a computer and the internet, the library has helped him better use their services. “I never used a computer before a couple of years ago,” Grasser said. “They set me up with a tutor and if I have questions they help me out.” Grasser said he is a competitive cyclist and uses the internet to stay abreast of upcoming competitions and to simply stay in touch with friends. “It’s a lifesaver for me,” Grasser said.

County shares Crownhill cleanup costs By KEVAN MOORE

Kitsap County has agreed to pay $48,131.56 as part of an ongoing investigation into contamination underneath Crownhill Elementary School in Bremerton. The Bremerton School District and the U.S. Navy will also each pay a third of the costs. “We owned parts of the site and as a former property owner, state law kind of keeps us around forever,” said Lisa Nickel, a Kitsap County deputy prosecutor. This latest payment, though, is one that the coun-

ty disputes but remains willing to pay. “We still want to help the school district and feel it’s the right thing to do when there is an elementary school involved,” Nickel said. “We will still defend the county against additional responsibility, but the point was to work cooperatively with the school district.” Future costs remain possible. The cleanup’s current stage is only an investigation into how bad the problems really are. By December, the Department of Ecology should announce what further cleanup steps are actu-

ally necessary. Chrownhill has about 389 students attending classes from pre-kindergarten through the 5th grade. The Bremerton School District and the Department of Ecology signed an agreed order to clean up the site in 2010. A subsequent investigation in 2011 detected contamination exceeding state cleanup standards in soil at depths greater than three feet deep. The found contaminants include petroleum products, household waste, lead and industrial solvents. A proposed “interim action” is designed to restore

the one area where the contaminants exceeded unrestricted land use cleanup levels at ground surface. So far, about $562,000 has been spent on Crownhill cleanup, with most of the money coming from Ecology grants, said Bremerton School District Finance Director Wayne Lindberg. “Our actual cost, even with the reimbursement with some of this, was about $144,394 that we were actually out-of-pocket on the site as of June 1,” Lindberg said, noting that the bill was split with the county and Navy. Lindberg said that Ecology



The Kitsap Regional Library is keeping up with the internet needs of patrons and doing it for half the price they once paid. Eight of the nine branches of the library have been upgraded to a 40 megabit fiber internet connection with the Manchester Library slated for upgrade by early 2013. Library branches originally connected through a single 10 megabit connection at the Sylvan Way library in Bremerton. The connections at the library branches limited data transmission speeds to 1.5 megabytes per second. Officials of the library said the new connection will allow the different branches a connection that allows the library to keep up with the increased demand for internet at libraries through laptops, smart phones and hardwired connections. Bainbridge Island, Port Orchard, Poulsbo and Silverdale each have their own 18 megabit connection and the remaining branches

work connecting all of our library buildings to a fiber network,” she said. “In addition, at our larger buildings, we have wireless connections with local cable suppliers to augment the fiber connection.” The upgrade was part of a statewide effort and paid for by a federal broadband stimulus grant in the amount of $3.5 million to the Kitsap County area. The money was meant to upgrade connectivity for underserved areas of the state and included the library and local schools among others. Whitford said before the upgrade the library was paying about $70,000 a year for internet services, and they are now paying just over $30,000. She said the savings came from the effec-

is in the driver’s seat when it comes to the cleanup and telling the district what it needs to do. So far, vapor and soil tests have been relatively minimal. “It isn’t until you get way down there in the deeper stuff that it gets bad,” Lindberg said. “We don’t think they’re going to have us dig a lot. We’re hoping they don’t.” According the Department of Ecology, the site was originally used for mining sand and gravel during the 1930s and the resulting mining pits were used as a landfill for various materials including municipal and industrial wastes. Some of the industrial wastes were reportedly from the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, dumped by the U.S. Navy. Those potential toxins including sandblast grit, scrap metal, asbestos insulation materials, metal shavings and fire bricks. The original Crownhill Elementary School was constructed on the Property in 1956. The school partially burned down in 1993 and the remaining building structures were demolished after the fire in 1993. In 1994, site work for a new Crownhill Elementary School was started on the property. During site preparation and utility excavation work, some soils were identified as known or suspected contaminated soils. Contaminated soils removed during construction were disposed of at an appropriate landfill and the new school opened in 1996.

K-9 deputy retires to family life Vet said continued service was life threatening By William Lewis and Greg Skinner &

After running down more that 100 suspects in a four year career, Ajax, a 7-year-old K-9 deputy, retired due to neck injuries gained in service to the Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Office. A veterinarian recent-

ly diagnosed Ajax with a compressed vertebrae in his “neck.” The medical inquiry was held after handler, deputy Joe Hedstrom, began to notice that Ajax was not responding well to verbal commands. “We decided to take him off duty,” Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Deputy Scott Wilson said. “Ajax is now living at home

with his handler, Deputy Joe Hedstrom, and his family. If the K-9’s can no longer perform their tasks, they are medically retired.” Sheriff Steve Boyer said that his K-9 deputies face the same hazards out in the field on patrol as do his human deputies and detectives. “It’s an unfortunate fact that injuries do occur,” Boyer said. “ While we can’t provide K-9s with pay raises, retirements pensions and the like, we do provide then with the

best possible training, equipment and veterinary care that is available. According to Wilson, deputies aren’t sure whether the injury occurred within one specific incident or multiple instances but the veterinarian told the Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Office that if deputies continued to use the animal on operations that the consequences for the animal were potentially life threatening, or the animal might become crippled. “He knew when it was time to work and when it was time to stand down,” Hedstrom said. Ajax is a native of Slovakia and was born in 2005. The German Shepard came to the U.S. in 2007 and went through more than 400 hours in a police K-9 academy in Wapakoeta,

Ohio before joining Deputy Hedstrom. the duo worked together for Ajax’ entire career in which he caught more than 112 suspects. “That’s a significant number,” Wilson said. In one case last December, Ajax trailed a copper thief into the woods in Central Kitsap near the Puget Sound Energy Substation from which he’d just stolen valuable ground wires while “scrapping.” The shepherd held his suspect to the ground by the foot as Hedstrom Arrived to take over. The K-9 earned more credentials in its short four year period of work with deputies from 2008 to 2012 than most dogs that serve a seven year period with the sheriff ’s office. Among the animals achievements were certifications from the

National Association of P r ofe s s ion a l Ca nine Ha nd lers, t he Inter nat iona l Police Working Dog A s s o c iat ion, t he A mer ic a n Pol ice Canine Association and the Washington Administrative Code requirements for police canines. In Nov. 2009, the dog was also accredited with the Washington State Police Canine Association, and in Oct. 2011, with the Washington State Police Canine Association. Ajax also graduated from the Spokane Police Advanced Patrol K-9 Handler Course. Hedstrom said he would still prefer to be patrolling Kitsap County with Ajax and “finding the bad guys” but knows Ajax “will rest comfortably at home and be spoiled by my family.”


125 years old and United Way of Kitsap County celebrates 75 years of service to Kitsap County. Since the recession began United Way of Kitsap County has slipped behind that 2007 high dollar mark due to work shortages and tough economic times. The recession may have ended in 2009 but it doesn’t feel like it. We must begin rebuilding the community campaign in order to increase our ability to help those who have suffered and are stilling suffering so very much through these past four years. If United Way is to have impact in our community it is up to us, you, me and our neighbors to provide the means. Government is not the answer; we as a collective hold the solution.

We must and we need to depend upon our ability to help each other as Denver did in 1887 and Bremerton did in 1937; as you might expect me to say, the best way to do that is through United Way’s consolidated annual campaign. I hold out hope that the community will answer the call. And should we be fortunate enough to once again in 2012-13 reach that $1.8 million high mark, I will sit in the middle of the intersection of 4th and Pacific in downtown Bremerton and have my head shaved until it shines in celebration of a victorious campaign that will surely have great impact in our community. Will you help?

Bremerton School District opens virtual academy By Patrick McDonough

The Bremerton School District finalized plans recently to offer online learning alternatives to students with the creation of a virtual academy. The new program will be offered at Bremerton High School and Mountain View Middle School and be available to students from grades six to 12. The virtual academy is an on-campus program offering students a chance to take a greater variety of classes and is a first step in virtual learning for the district, said Kati Carthum, Digital Education coordinator for the Bremerton School District. “The program itself stems from a wish to provide extra options to students in the district and get our feet wet in the world of online learning,” she said. To meet the goal, the district contracted the online learning company Advanced Academics, which offers more than 100 class options for students. Available courses include AP Physics, AP Spanish Language, AP U.S. Government and Politics as well as remedial math options and career and technology skills. Carthum said the classes are not a school replacement program. Instead, the academy is an on-campus,

Carthum was instrumental in creating the district’s new virtual academy which will offer students more class options for the 2012-13 school year. instructor-supervised model designed to allow students to add a single class they might not otherwise be able to attend due to scheduling conflicts. Statistics pointing to the success of online learning in K-12 settings are generally positive according to officials at the state and national level. In a 2010-11 report about online learning, the Office of

the Superintendent of Public Instruction for the state of Washington offers statistics on the success of virtual learning. In a non-stand-alone model, such as the model for the Bremerton Virtual Academy, where students add less than 5 classes and attend on campus, a completion rate of 87.3 percent of students and a pass rate of 93.8 percent were recorded.


The statistics also show varying degrees of statistical success from program to program with numbers as divergent as 100 percent pass and completion rates and as low as 32.8 percent and 45 percent respectively. Karl Nelson, Director of the Digital Learning Department for OSPI, said statistics can be difficult with online learning due to factors such as grading practices and the involve-

ment of at-risk students in online learning. “It is not always the most fair comparison to make between online learning and in brick and mortar schools,” he said. “There is no simple or clean answer.

ties in gauging the success of online learning but found students generally fare well in virtual settings. “Few rigorous research studies of the effectiveness of online learning for K–12 students have been published,” the report states, but the report also notes that students in online conditions “performed modestly better” than those in face-to-face learning situations. Nelson said success often depended upon the level of support provided. “If the district provides more face-to-face support, such as a teacher or a counselor, it works better,” he said. Carthum said the Bremerton Virtual Academy was created to include faceto-face assistance with every class offered. “We will be providing full support to students and the current model is just one class at a time,” she said.” Carthum said the first year of the program was designed to start students slowly before deciding upon expanding the online model. “The virtual academy will assist the student and assist us in learning what is needed to make students successful,” she said. “In order to meet all of those expectations we wanted to start on a smaller scale and to be sure we were doing it right so it could grow successfully.”

Courtesy Bob Lee is, I thought, ‘What could I do?’ ” By biking around the country, he hopes to connect people with his message. “This isn’t about a bike ride, it’s about the three reasons. The bike is just a tool,” Lee said. “I’m not a bike rider, I’m a peddler, and I’m peddling a mes-

North Central Washington continues to grow up W

hile we often think of Washington wine country as stretching between the cities of Yakima and Walla Walla, the North Central Washington region is not only coming into its own, but also playing an important role. This summer, Wine Press Northwest and Foothills magazines combined to put on the second annual North Central Washington Wine Awards, and the results were recently revealed. Generally speaking, the region focuses on the areas around Wenatchee, Leavenworth and Chelan, includes the Grant County towns of Mattawa, George and Quincy, then stretches north to Okanogan County.

BREMERTON — Kathleen and Gary Ebbert’s car has seen a lot of road, a lot of miles, a lot of history. The Port Orchard couple’s 1915 Model T touring car first took to the road as President Woodrow Wilson was trying to keep America out of the war in Europe. That year, stunt performer Harry Houdini was wowing audiences with his straitjacket escape performances. The first stone of the Lincoln Memorial was put into place. Canadian Lt. Col. John McCrae wrote “In Flanders Fields.” Babe Ruth of the Boston Red Sox hit his first career home run off of Jack Warhop of the New York Yankees. The

Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Mich. The Ebberts, who are active in the Kitsap Peninsula Model T Club, own 12 Model Ts, dating from 1914 to 1927. Some are restored, some are not. “We prefer them as natural as possible,” she said. The models they like to drive are the 1915

The Model T enthusiasts will drive their cars to Port Townsend on Friday, leaving at 8:30 a.m. and returning by 6 p.m. On Saturday, the enthusiasts will leave at 9 a.m. and drive to Keyport for lunch and a museum tour. This Can-Am tour is “the biggest one that’s


Raggedy Ann doll was born. Mexico was rocked by revolution. America’s first stop sign was erected, in Detroit, Mich. Almost 100 years later, the Ebberts’ car is still cruising, having outlasted countries and dynasties and movements, a testimony to the wonder of simplicity in engine design. “That’s part of the secret,” Ebbert said of the car’s no frills engine. “My husband said, ‘Henry Ford made a good product, don’t mess with it.’ ” She added, “We’re very passionate about the Model T. We love them. It’s like going back in time.” You can take a trip back in time Friday and Saturday at the 34th annual Can-Am Model T Tour in Bremerton. Fortynine Model Ts, from 1911

People helping pets...pets helping people. Basil and Cumin-The Spice Boys- are 6 month old

medium haired mostly white with orange tabby patches brothers. They were taken from their mom when they were about a week old by a person who thought they’d been abandoned. When we got them to the vets we knew that not to be the case. Unfortunately this kept them from getting the much needed mom’s milk to help build their immune system. These guys have spent the last few months getting over ringworn. They have been cleared for adoption and will be hanging out at the Poulsbo Petco waiting to meet their new family. They are very playful, friendly, and snuggly boys.

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension. To m a k e a f i r e w o o d complaint, call 360-9021857. weightsMeasures/ Firewoodinformation.aspx
