POULSBO — Donations to the Poulsbo Lions / Raab Foundation Bellringer Fund total $1,925 as of Thursday morning. Donations can be delivered to the North Kitsap Herald, 19351 8th Ave. NE, Suite 205, Poulsbo. Or mail to P.O. Box 1244, Poulsbo, WA. 98370.

POULSBO — When it was time to awaken the Norseman, the 12-foot giant seemed to take on a life of its own Nov. 23. Project coordinator Bill Austin and Miss Poulsbo Michaela Meeker pulled the rope that released the Norseman’s shroud, but the covering over his head was problematic, as if the giant was not yet ready to be awakened. Then, fully revealed, he looked like he might step down from his concrete platform to join — or rule — the crowd. Viking horns sounded, adding to the excitement of the moment. Meeker described the monument as “kind of intimidating” because of its towering size. Still, the unveiling was, to her, “a magical moment.”

POULSBO — Kitsap County Prosecutor Russ Hauge is dismissing 60 pending marijuanarelated cases, based on new legal framework from Initiative 502. The initiative, approved by voters in November, takes effect Dec. 6. Hauge’s office began reviewing specific cases — adults older than 21 whose sole charge is possession of 40 grams or less of marijuana — after the passage of I-502, which legalized up to an ounce of recreational marijuana for adults 21 and older. The law also set up a framework for the production, distribution and sale of marijuana in the state. Some of the cases go back more than 10 years. “Although it may be a violation of federal law, even after Dec. 6, the only agency that could prosecute those cases would be us,” Hauge said. He added that the U.S. Attorney’s Office has “made plain” in the last few years they’re not interested in pursuing misdemeanor marijuana offenses. “There’s no reason for us to go forward and spend the resources

POULSBO — North Kitsap has been a part of brightening the lives of millions of children around the world for 20 years through Operation Christmas Child. Gifts, such as school supplies, toys and stuffed animals, are packed into shoeboxes that are handdelivered to be shipped. “Even at our lowest, we are way above what most of these people will ever see in their lives,” said Tamara Henry, the Poulsbo coordinator for the Peninsulas area team. This year, North Kitsap contributed to the Peninsulas’ 8,100 shoeboxes of gifts, Henry said. In addition, there were so many volunteers this year at the Nov. 17 packing party in the Poulsbo Library that the party ran out of room and supplies, Henry said. What the effort needs, she said, is year-round participation. Gift boxes will continue to be collected year-round, with packing parties every November. For more information, email Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Handmade holiday lights brighten Front Street photos by megan stephenson Poulsbo booster Bill Austin volunteers much of his time and materials to projects around the city, including his handcrafted Christmas light display along downtown’s Front Street. What could be purchased for $25,000 Austin does for a quarter of the cost. “It’s what I do,” he said while demonstrating how he makes the
metal light displays. “I feel it’s my duty to do this. I feel it’s a duty for everyone to give something back to the community.” This year, he added three more light sets, for a total of eight, to the Front Street displays, as well as red hearts, a traditional Norwegian holiday symbol. Here is a little about how he does it.
Top left: Always the multitasker, Bill Austin paints a metal star while discussing another project on the phone. Top right: Austin wanted a nod to Norway with red-lighted hearts, a Norwegian holiday symbol, in this year’s light display.
Above, a CenturyLink technician places the light display across Front Street Nov. 25. The team volunteered their time to properly and safely install the lights. Above, Austin demonstrates how he bends the metal framework of the holiday lights in his workshop. Austin will then weld the pieces together. Austin, a sign maker by trade, also dabbles in metal working and car restoration.

IN OUR OPINION
Shopping locally makes a big difference locally I
n recent surveys on NorthKitsapHerald.com and KingstonCommunityNews.com, a majority of respondents said they plan to do most of their holiday shopping locally or in Kitsap County. That’s a welcome reverse from last year, when a majority of respondents said they planned to do most of their holiday shopping elsewhere. The last three years of economic recovery have reminded us how important we are to each other. Money we spend here stays here. It helps pay local wages, put food on local tables, pay local rents and mortgages. It funnels through to the many nonprofits by the generous donations of local businesses. It generates sales tax revenue, which supports public services that benefit you. Do your holiday shopping elsewhere, and your money stays elsewhere. Shopping local makes sense in other ways. First, you know who you’re buying from and often you’ll purchase an item that is made locally. Second, local items are unique. Locally produced art, books and clothing reflect the wealth of creativity in North Kitsap. You’ll find local food products, as well as award-winning vintages from Kitsap wineries, in local stores. And if you’re looking for eco-friendly items, North Kitsap offers more than its share. Consider a gift certificate to a local gallery, store, or dinner at a local restaurant. This area is a world-class destination, known for its natural beauty. Consider a donation in a family member’s name to the Marine Science Center in downtown Poulsbo, or a gift certificate for kayaking or other outdoor activities. Donate in someone’s name to the Kitsap Forest and Bay Project, and help buy 7,000 acres of local timberland for conservation and public use. Speaking of local causes, consider a donation in someone’s name to North Kitsap Fishline, or to North Kitsap Bellringer, or to another cause that meets local needs. And, of course, shopping in North Kitsap includes all the cheer and lights and fun of the holiday events that accompany the season. Skip the ferries, freeways and fill-ups. There is a lot to enjoy — and share — in shopping locally. We wish you all the best this holiday season.

Letters Reader: Herald is a ‘leftist, yellow rag’ I noticed that in your weakkneed defense against Barry Clemons’ spot-on letter of Nov. 23 (“Reaction to Nov. 16 editorial cartoon,” page A4), you had nothing to say (excuse) about the statement, “In more than 100 precincts in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, Obama received 99 percent of the votes. Does that seem plausible?” or “Barack Obama received 98 percent of the vote in 10 of the 50 wards in Chicago.” How come your leftist buddies didn’t give you some alibi for those claims? You do publish a leftist, yellow rag. Donald H. Danielson Poulsbo
Stand by for more info on cash donations I would like to thank Mr. Walker for printing my letter in the most recent publication of the North Kitsap Herald (“Reaction to Nov. 16 editorial cartoon,” page A4, Nov. 23 Herald). I was under the impression that it was not going to happen. In spite of the footnotes you provided as a correction, the evidence of voter fraud in the POTUS election was undeniable. The next issue I think we will see emerge in the media, and what I will soon comment about, is the taxpayer cash donations from the Obama White House to his donors, via all those failed “green companies.” Stand by!

Some ideas for more public art in Poulsbo My comments are related to the recent erection of the horned, caped, sword-wielding statue of a male Viking in Poulsbo at Viking Avenue and Lindvig Way. If the city of Poulsbo and some of its citizens are going to get into the erection of public art statues, then I have a couple of suggestions for some other statues that would give the driving public a view of other significant forces in the city
of Poulsbo. First, how about a statue of General George Washington, on horseback, leading his troops against the tyrannical British forces that were taxing the founding American colonists to the hilt? Gen. Washington prevailed against the British, thus giving birth to these United States of America, in the 1776 American Revolution. It was these United States of America that recently gave the City of Poulsbo $775,000 to repair a roadway to Old Town Poulsbo that was washing into Liberty Bay. And how about a nice woodcarved statue of the Native American-themed Kitsap County logo at a busy roadway entrance to Poulsbo? After all, it’s Kitsap County and its contributions to Poulsbo’s beloved Marine Science Center that are partially responsible for keeping the Marine Science Center open. Then there is additional money from the State of (General George) Washington given to the City of Poulsbo for the Marine Science Center, to keep its doors open. Then there is money from the Suquamish Tribe that funds the fireworks for the City of Poulsbo and the 3rd of July Independence Day celebration. An entrance to Poulsbo from the busy Bond Road corridor or, say, Highway 305 from the direction of Old Town Poulsbo are sites that come to mind for additional statues to inform the driving public of just what keeps the City of Poulsbo afloat these days. Public art gives any community flavor, whether pri-
vately or publicly funded. Having these additional statues erected would give Poulsbo public art statues a balanced flavor that accurately represents past and present driving forces in the city of Poulsbo. John Eastman Poulsbo
Ensure responsible access to cannabis An open letter to the Mayor, City Council and Planning Department of Poulsbo: The proposed zoning criteria for medical cannabis collective gardens will disenfranchise medical marijuana patients in Poulsbo and North Kitsap of availability to their medicine. By designating these gardens as “Light Industrial,” with restrictions on par with “Adult Entertainment Businesses,” it would be difficult to impossible for such gardens to become established as allowed under state law, and put participants at further risk of federal investigation, arrest and prosecution with more severe penalties. Most of the allowable sites, as proposed, are already occupied by tenants whose policies would not allow for a private collective garden that produces or distributes a federally controlled substance. Such tenants include a storage facility, Kitsap County Public Works, Kitsap Transit, City of Poulsbo, and the Washington State Patrol. The selected sites are also

The truth about salmon recovery BEING FRANK I
love this time of year. The chinook, coho and chum are coming back and we’re filling our smokehouses and freezers for the coming winter. I am proud to say that a good number of those returning fish came from our tribal hatcheries. We produce more than 40 million young salmon every year. Last year, we released about 14 million chinook, 6 million coho, 20 million chum, 125,000 sockeye and 650,000 steelhead. Most tribal hatcheries produce salmon for harvest by both Indian and nonIndian fishermen. Some serve as wild salmon nurseries that improve survival of juvenile fish and increase returns of salmon in our watersheds that spawn naturally. At a time when the state is cutting back on hatchery programs because of a huge budget shortfall,
Continued from page A4 in close proximity to public parks, churches, or “other facility regularly used by children,” which violates 21 U.S.C. Section 860 — federal penalties for convictions in drug free zones are in addition to other offenses, and can double, or triple the initial penalties. Despite what some may feel about the medicinal use of cannabis, the debate ended in 1998, when voters of our state approved the Medical Use of Cannabis Act, thereby validating cannabis as medicine. Support for medical use is currently 74 percent nationally. Kitsap voters approved the tax-andregulate marijuana Initiative 502 by a 56-to-42 percent

tribes are increasi n g l y picking up the tab to keep salmon coming home for everyone who lives here. Tribes are doing everything from taking over the operation of some state hatcheries to buying fish food and making donations of cash and labor to keep up production. That’s because we believe hatcheries play a critical role in fisheries management. Without them, our treaty rights would be meaningless because there would be no salmon for harvest — by anyone. Hatcheries must remain
margin. It is clear that public support for the federal prohibition on marijuana is waning. Elected officials that maintain prohibitionist attitudes on this matter will eventually be replaced by those that offer more empathetic views and realize the economic potential for local jobs in new industry. Marijuana-related industries extend beyond access to raw-plant material, and include manufacture of baked goods, topical ointments, and infused beverages, such as coffees, beers and sodas — these are industries that can begin to develop now under our state’s medical cannabis laws, then eventually under a non-medical market. I urge the City of Poulsbo to reconsider the zoning criteria for medical canna-
a central part of salmon management in western Washington for as long as lost and degraded habitat prevents our watersheds from naturally producing abundant, self-sustaining runs. We can’t allow hatcheries to be an excuse to walk away from protecting and restoring habitat. In fact, we can’t have hatcheries without habitat. That’s because once a salmon leaves a hatchery it needs the same habitat as a naturally produced salmon. Both need plenty of cool, clean water, good instream and marine nearshore habitat and access to and from the ocean. Because every watershed and its salmon are unique, we believe that the use of hatcheries should evolve over time depending on the health of our watersheds. Those with little or badly damaged habitat will likely
need long-term or even permanent hatchery production to provide salmon for harvest and stock restoration. For watersheds where habitat can be restored, hatchery production may be reduced over time as the habitat is able to support abundant, naturally spawning runs. Hatcheries are a tool. Nothing more. Nothing less. We have hatcheries because of choices made in the past and choices that are still being made today about how we treat our environment. We think hatcheries work best when they work handin-hand with good harvest management and are combined with protecting and restoring habitat. That’s because hatcheries are not a substitute for plentiful, high-quality habitat and never will be. — Billy Frank Jr. is chairman of the Northwest Indian

Continued from page A1 line on Viking Road cannot handle the increased flow from your project.” But that line was never built. Today, nine lift stations pump wastewater from Poulsbo’s neighborhoods — including Olhava, Poulsbo Place and other development built since 1995 — to a single line that carries it along Highway 305 to Lemolo and then across Liberty Bay to Brownsville. And that’s the line that, inundated with stormwater and wastewater, blew a manhole cover Nov. 19 and flooded Phil Holt’s basement at 9th and Nordnes for the second time since 2007. It was a different manhole cover than the one that popped in 2007. And Holt is afraid it could happen again. Public Works Director Barry Loveless said the sewer main was inundated with stormwater and pushed the manhole cover loose, allowing a 5,000- to 10,000-gallon mix of wastewater and stormwater to flow down the hill to Holt’s house. Three or four Public Works crew members went to the scene and, with sandbags, routed the flow from
Wastewater spills from a manhole on Highway 305 above Phil Holt’s house on 9th Avenue and Nordnes Street in 2007. The same thing happened Nov. 19. Courtesy Phil Holt the house to a storm drain, Loveless said, where it went into Liberty Bay. That prompted a six-day bay closure by the Kitsap County Health District. The crew members pumped the water from the basement. Holt hired contractors to repair the damage, including replacing drywall and carpet. Stuart Whitford, manager of the Kitsap County Health District’s Water Pollution Identification and Correction Program, said the wastewater that overflowed was enough to fill five to 10 septic tanks. The sewer main is located uphill from Holt’s neighborhood. When it blows, the wastewater flows down a forested hill, down Nordnes Street. It flows down the
natural contour of the street across Holt’s neighbor’s yard (and into her crawl space), and then across Holt’s yard. It fills the basement window space until the glass breaks from the pressure, then flows into his basement — laundry room, storage, bathroom, recreation room — this latest time, to a depth of 10 inches. When Holt’s home was flooded in December 2007, he filed a claim with the city. His home sustained $26,000 in damage. The City Council and the city’s insurance carrier, the Association of Washington Cities, denied the claim. He hired ADA Engineering, which is led by former city engineer Norm Armstrong, to do a report on the city’s

The report noted that the city’s sewer main is “used by areas and development never anticipated in the original design.” ADA included documents showing that the city was aware in 1991 that the existing sewer main was “at or exceeding capacity during wet weather,” and noted that the main recommended by Gross was never built. AWC settled with Holt for $19,000. Holt has filed a claim for payment for repairs to his home after the latest flood. Mayor Becky Erickson said Monday she supports paying the claim. “We have no desire to put anybody through this,” she said. She said the city thought it had fixed the problem.
The city has been working to identify places where stormwater can get into the sewer system. Manhole covers are bolted into the concrete manhole which leads to the sewer pipe. After the storm in December 2007, Public Works reinforced the manhole and re-bolted the cover in place so it couldn’t be popped by an overflow. The mayor said the city has been working to reinforce other manhole covers at risk of popping loose. “We thought we fixed it, but a piece further up the line broke in another section and flooded him again,” Erickson said. “This latest storm was more intense than in 2007. We had severe flooding in several areas of the city.”
Erickson called the spill “not acceptable.” Wednesday, nine days after the flood, Holt’s basement was tidied but the damage was evident. A contractor had removed carpet and 10 inches of drywall that will need to be replaced. Holt had replaced the broken window and disinfected everything in sight. A water line was visible on every box, on pieces of furniture. Dehumidifiers hummed. Among the items lost: Childhood photos of the Holts’ children, who are now adults. Meanwhile, Loveless said Holt’s house could be protected from any future overflow by installing berms or curbing.

Klallam people celebrate new dictionary Will boost understanding, teaching of language By RICHARD WALKER
LITTLE BOSTON — The hefty, 983-page book is important for the current generation, Laura Price told the crowd gathered Wednesday in the Port Gamble S’Klallam longhouse. “It’s important for the ones who have passed on, and it’s important for the ones who are not here yet.” Indeed, the new Klallam Dictionary — celebrated at the gathering of Klallam people from Elwha, Jamestown and Port Gamble —- holds the future of the language. And it holds a lot of history. Elders, educators and Tribal Council members from Becher Bay, Elwha, Jamestown and Port Gamble worked with University of North Texas professor Timothy Montler for a quarter of a century on this dictionary, which has more than 9,000
Continued from page A1 sculpture, by noted artist Mark Gale of Tacoma, will draw more visitors to Little Norway. Mayor Becky Erickson said the Norseman is a symbol of the revitalization that is creeping along Viking Avenue since the old Auto Row shuttered, leaving large, vacant lots in its wake. “It’s the heart, the center [of Poulsbo],” Erickson said of the corner, historically known as the Junction. At one time, this area was part of a thriving neighborhood with a cafe, dairy, farms, grocery, school, service station and shingle mill. Reminders of that era remain: A portion of old road, County Road 59, which is now a walking trail on the west side of Liberty Bay; the restored Martinson Cabin, which was moved to Viking and Lindvig from Bond Road

In the 2000s, the city of Poulsbo used Stimulus Act money to improve the street from Highway 305 to the southern city limits. In 2009, when the city began those improvements, the intersection of Viking and Finn Hill/Lindvig Way accommodated approximately 24,000 cars a day, according to the city at the time. Since Poulsbo RV left and the auto dealerships closed, Erickson has been trying to lure new businesses to the thoroughfare. She initiated a city marketing website, CrossroadsPoulsbo.com, which failed to take off (she said Nov. 23 that it’s better to reach out directly to prospective businesses than to rely on a website) and at one time toyed with a theme for Viking Avenue, “The Man’s Side of Town,” in reference to the auto-

Every Port Gamble S’Klallam family and tribal government department received a copy of the dic-
tionary Wednesday. Marie Hebert, who teaches language to children in grades K-5, said the dictionary will be a well-used tool. “I’m always having to look up words — or I call Tim Montler,” she said. “It’s going to help keep the language alive, it’s going to help the children to continue on [learning the language] and be proud of who they are.”

“I still hope we can find a home for the farmers market on Viking,” Erickson said.

and now we have this,” said Giovanna Alaimo, a Seattle teacher who lives in Poulsbo. Public art represents “the veins of our culture. It’s an expression of what’s going on in our area – our culture, our history, the flavor of the area you’re in,” she said. The Viking is, indeed, quite a work of art. It is made of about 500 pounds of rebar steel and 5,000 pounds of cement. Gale worked from the bottom up — forming the shape of the man piece by piece, then adding Viking details: a thick beard, “leather” belt, a coat of chainmail, a cape, a thick sword and a helmet. The project was funded by the Bjorgen Beautification Fund. “Bill and I started working on this a year and a half ago,” Erickson said during the unveiling. “He was the driver. I just followed and picked up the pieces.” Austin — whose community projects include Kvelstad Pavilion, the
Viking mural downtown, and the Martinson Cabin restoration — thanked all the contractors that contributed concrete, signage and placed the sculpture. He then introduced the artist, Gale, who was succinct: “I want to thank the mayor and City Council for letting me be a part of the beautification of Poulsbo.” The unveiling of the Norseman was a highlight of the Viking Avenue Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony. The event featured music by the North Kitsap High School Choir and the lighting of the tree next to Martinson Cabin. Among those attending the festivities was Suquamish Tribe Chairman Leonard Forsman, whose ancestors knew Poulsbo as tcutcu lats. The crowd toured the Martinson Cabin, enjoyed hot beverages, candy canes, and took hay rides. The tree was donated by St. Mick’s Tree Farm of Kingston.

around guns because of her pending trial. The weapon was found in the trunk of the car Dixon was driving. Her boyfriend, Dominick Catalano, was also taken into custody Nov. 2. Schnepf said Dixon accepted the plea agreement soon after she was taken into custody. Dixon is currently in custody at the Washington Corrections Center for Women in Purdy, where she is being reviewed to determine her security level. The center offers many inmate programs for education and work release, as well as prenatal care for expectant mothers. Melissa Johnson, public information officer, said pregnant inmates are screened to be eligible for the program, based on type of offense, behavior and the sentence in prison, among other factors. The program offers time between the mother and child so they continue to bond. Dixon’s attorney, Ron Ness, said he believes “there is no question” that she wants to change her life.
Dixon was a Viking Fest princess in 2007. As a teen, she was involved in FFA, teen mentoring and on the committee for the Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Walk. She graduated from North Kitsap High School in 2008 and went to work for the police department shortly after. She was first arrested in July 2011, accused of stealing firearms from the police evidence locker, two months after she left the department stemming from a separate, internal investigation. Dixon’s father found a Bryco Arms .380 caliber, semi-automatic handgun among his daughter’s possessions when she was moving from his home, and turned it into police. Dixon was arrested again in October 2011 for theft of a second firearm, a Rino Galesi .22 caliber, semiautomatic handgun. The gun was found in her truck, being driven by her thenboyfriend, Jacob Bryant, who was pulled over for a collision investigation. Bryant, a convicted felon, was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm. He

Heroin, cocaine and methamphetamines are what’s on their radar. In an interview with the Central Kitsap Reporter, Hauge said his office has been taking a deliberative approach to pot cases for quite some time. “What we’ve been doing with marijuana cases for a long time, quite frankly, is looking at them very carefully and quite often we don’t charge a person if there is any indication of medical use. We generally don’t charge those.”
Continued from page A1 Alford plea to charges of attempted theft of a firearm, theft of a firearm and communication with a minor for immoral purposes, in Kitsap County Superior Court Nov. 15. Dixon, 24, formerly of Kingston, accepted the prosecutor’s offer of the Alford plea, which allows a defendant to concede a jury would likely convict, with the result being a longer sentence. With an Alford plea, a defendant does not admit guilt. Dixon is also prohibited from owning a firearm for life, though she can someday petition the court for restoration of that right. Coreen Schnepf, senior deputy prosecuting attorney in Dixon’s case, said Dixon’s bail was revoked after she was arrested in Kirkland Nov. 2 for possession of a firearm and knowingly trafficking in stolen property. According to the report, Dixon said the gun was her boyfriend’s and she told him she couldn’t be

Both guns had been in Poulsbo Police evidence, and Dixon signed documents that she witnessed both of the guns’ destruction. Schnepf said there is no evidence the gun Dixon was arrested for possessing in Kirkland is connected to the Poulsbo Police evidence locker.
Dixon was charged again in May 2012 with thirddegree child molestation, following a Poulsbo police interview with a 15-year-old boy. The boy said he had a relationship with Dixon but thought she was 16. In a later interview with a Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputy, the boy said he knew her true age when he asked his family not to report her to the police because of their relationship. According to charging documents, the 15-year-
old said he and Dixon met through his uncle and allegedly would “mostly drive around, drink alcohol and smoke weed.” The boy told officers Dixon was aware of his age when they met. In later interviews with family members, Dixon allegedly told her cousin that he was 20. Dixon initially pleaded not guilty to all charges. Her theft trial had been postponed several times before the Nov. 15 court date.

POULSBO — A Seattle woman is charged with forgery after allegedly attempting to pay for items at the Poulsbo Walmart with a check from a bank account that was established with a stolen ID. Bobbie D. Catton, 47, was charged in Kitsap County District Court Nov. 8. Poulsbo Police responded to a report of theft in progress at Walmart on Olhava Way Sept. 21 about 9 p.m. Security staff reported a man and a woman filling up a shopping cart “with a large number of expensive and commonly shoplifted items.” The male suspect was allegedly seen on surveillance footage removing security packaging from an item. According to the report, the woman tried to pay for the merchandise with a check, and when the check was declined the two left the store, setting off security alarm sensors at the door. The Poulsbo police officer approached the two in the parking lot, where they were heading for a white truck. The items found in the man’s pockets could not be proven to be stolen from Walmart, and the two were free to leave, but they left the truck. The officer eventually found the truck had been reported stolen and its license plates switched with those from another vehicle. According to the police report, the owner of the truck was located in Seattle via the truck’s VIN number. The truck’s owner reported her purse, keys and truck had been stolen Sept. 3.

Be a Santa to a senior through Home Instead POULSBO — Home Instead Senior Care has been providing home care services to seniors in our community since 2005.

SILVERDALE — Children of the Nations has launched its first Village Partnership Program in Haiti, in the community of Bellevue. Children of the Nations leaders said in a press release that the partnership follows “years of praying for direction and building partnerships with local communities.” Children of the Nations has hired two Haitian staff members and formed an all-Haitian board of directors in that country. The staff and board selected the community of Bellevue, an area just outside of Port-auPrince, which was near the epicenter of the January 2010 earthquake. Children of the Nations will sponsor 75 children younger than 8 to attend a nearby Christian school and an after-school program led by staff members. The after-school program will include tutoring, Bible
lessons, games and nutritious meals, according to the organization. COTN-Haiti’s future plans include building a school in Bellevue to better meet local education needs. According to the organization, Bellevue has shown “an extreme need for education, basic nutrition, and spiritual leadership,” and is ready and willing to partner with Children of the Nations, working alongside staff members to bring about transformation in those areas. A Bellevue community leader publicly recognized Children of the Nations as an organization that works differently than most NGOs already in the country, “working with us, not around us,” he said. Children of the Nations (www.cotni.org) is a nonprofit organization serving in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Malawi, Sierra Leone, and Uganda.

Firearms middleman gets at-home permit Will receive Internet orders for customers By MEGAN STEPHENSON
POULSBO — An Internet-based firearms sales business has been approved by the Poulsbo city planning director. Raymond Navarette, owner of Gold Mountain Arms LLC, applied for a Home-Occupation Permit on Oct. 2. Gold Mountain
Arms is not a retail firearms business and will not have a stock of firearms, but is an Internet-based middleman between private sellers and buyers. Federal law requires purchasers of firearms to pick them up from a federally licensed firearms dealer. Customers would come to the home in the 2500 block of NE Kevos Pond Drive to pick up their purchased firearms. Navarette said he needs the city business license before he can apply for his state firearms dealer license through the Poulsbo Police Department. He said he
has been approved for a federal firearms license and is awaiting the paperwork from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. He said he’s hoping to be open in time for the holidays, but is aiming to begin taking orders by January. He said firearms are a longtime hobby for him — target shooting, and big game and bird hunting — and firearms are a growing business. Navarette said he’ll be working by appointment only and word of mouth — his permit says he cannot
advertise his business on his property, and all storage and transactions will occur inside the home. Planning staff determined the home occupation does not infringe on the safety of neighbors. Navarette wants to eventually expand his business into a shop and maybe an indoor shooting range, both at another location. The application received two letters of opposition from neighbors concerned about the storage of firearms and ammunition in a neighborhood with children. In responses to the letters, planning staff said “the applicant indicated
that any firearms, ammunition, etc on the premises would be stored in a safe that is bolted to the floor … Since Gold Mountain will be acting as the ‘middleman’ between an individual seller and an individual customer, and not operating as retail store for the general public, there will not be a large amount of firearms or ammunition in the home at any one time.” Planning Director Barry Berezowsky reviewed the letters and the application, and approved the permit on Nov. 6. The Poulsbo Police Department had no objection to the permit with approved conditions.

Get ready to party like it’s 1859 Mill Town Family Christmas in Seabeck By LESLIE KELLY Kitsap Week
EABECK — Forget Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Turn off the television. Put away that iPod, iPhone and the video games. For just a few hours, try not to think about what needs to be done before Santa arrives and the relatives show up at the front door on Christmas Day. Take a break and travel back more than 150 years to a time when holiday celebrations were pure and simple. At that time, in the mid-1800s, life in the old town of Seabeck centered on the lumber mills that caused the town to grow to be more populous than Seattle. The work in the mills brought young men

They settled on the Kitsap Peninsula in the logging camps near Seabeck. That town of the 1860s will come alive on Dec. 9 as the Seabeck
Conference Center becomes the Mill Town Family Christmas Village. From 4-8 p.m., visitors can take a ride on a hay wagon, enjoy the music and dance of the day, eat an old-fashioned Christmas dinner, and learn about Christmas tra-

was about five years ago when we said ‘Why not do something Christmasy here?,’ Williams said. “It would be great place for a Christmas event, with all the forested land and the historic buildings.” The celebration will continue with music and dancing in the spirit of 1860s. Well-known musicians Phil and Vivian Williams will play heritage music and period songs on the guitar and fiddle. The couple, who have studied and played music since the 1960s, are known worldwide for their knowledge of music history, especially of the early American fiddle. “This is one of our favorite events to play at,” Phil Williams said. “This is like stepping back in time. The people who attend really get into it, the dancing, the music and the history.” At 5:30 p.m., dinner will be served in the meeting hall, which was the cookhouse back in 1865. It will include just what the residents of Old Mill Town Seabeck would have eaten on a holiday in the 1860s, beginning with clam chowder, and then prime rib, roasted rooted vegetables, homemade biscuits and berry pie. Following dinner, local historians including Chuck Kraining, director of the Seabeck Center, will speak about life in the mid 1800s and the Seabeck of that era. Phil and Vivian Williams will speak about the history of the music of the time. For the youngsters, there will be some small, simple holiday gifts similar to what was given in the day. “In those days, a man would carve a small wooden shelve for his wife,” Anita Williams said. “Men would get knitted scarfs or maybe a new shirt made from old flour sacks, and the children would get one gift each, usually an item of clothing. Most all of the presents were handmade. “If the family had relatives in San Francisco, or in the East, the gifts would come by steamliner and could be food or toiletries or things that couldn’t be easily purchased here on the peninsula.” And in that day, the Christmas decorating was very simple: greenery draped from the doorway, candles and possibly a live tree decorated with popcorn and cranberry
Carolers sing holiday favorites at the Mill Town Family Christmas. Be prepared to sing along. Below, a reenactor dressed in period clothing talks about Christmas and how it was celebrated in Seabeck in the mid-1800s. Gary Beanland Photography / Courtesy it’s so much more than that. It’s a real opportunity for those who attend to really get back to what matters about the holidays
strands and some traditional glass ornaments saved in the family for years. In years past, visitors have learned about holiday traditions of days past and enjoyed the event, she said. “People love it so much that they come back year after year,” she said. “And it is especially fun for the youngsters because they can see history come alive and experience what life was like back then.” And, because the event is a fundraiser for the historical society, there will be gift baskets for raffle during the holiday celebration. At least a dozen baskets will tempt visitors who can buy tickets at the event and drop their tickets in bins beside the basket or baskets they hope to take home. Winning tickets will be drawn following the dinner and talks. Thus far, baskets have been donated by Trader Joe’s, Valley Nursery, the U.S. Lighthouse Society (including a two-night stay at a lighthouse) and the Puppet Museum. “We rely on this event to help fund our activities,” said Megan Bradley, spokeswoman for the historical museum. “But
— being with family and experiencing the simple joys of life.” Tickets are $30 for adults, $15 for children

Kitsap bird watching: Just as good, and greener KITSAP S birdwatching
ome birdwatchers will climb on a plane and fly halfway round the world to add a rare bird to their life list. The Brits call them “twitchers.” Few of us have the surplus funds or fanatical inclination to go that far. Rising energy costs are also putting a damper on many travel plans. This makes birdwatching close to home an even better — and greener — choice. The good news is that local birdwatchers don’t need to feel deprived. Kitsap offers wonderful seasonal viewing for stayat-home birders. Emulating the very successful ecotourism models of Texas and Florida, Washington Audubon created the Great Washington Birding Trail. With grants from the Department of Transportation, teams of Audubon volunteers and the support of regional tourism and business groups, Washington Audubon has published a series of seven color-
and a downloadable brochure, “Where to Find Birds in Kitsap County.” In choosing the final six, the Kitsap team weighed things like accessibility, parking and the seasonal abundance of birds. The six favorites don’t begin to exhaust the wildlife viewing possibilities in Kitsap County, but it’s a good place to start. Most are just a short hop from home. Starting with the

The Puget Loop is one of seven regional Audubon guides that map the best birding locations in Washington. The Puget Loop includes six of Kitsap County’s premier birding hotspots based on information gathered by a team from Kitsap Audubon. ful maps with detailed information about the best birdwatching hotspots in each region of the state. Ultimately, these color
maps will be supplemented with local signage — and even an app for those who use their iPods and similar devices to plan their travels. The Puget Loop is the seventh and final map in the series. Thanks to an experienced team of volunteers from Kitsap Audubon, the loop includes six of Kitsap’s premier birding areas. Kitsap Audubon helped fund publication of the map and the Kitsap team provided detailed recommendations. The maps are a great stocking stuffer for your favorite birdwatching friends, and can be purchased from Kitsap Audubon for $5. You can find details on their website at www. KitsapAudubon.org. The website also has a downloadable check list for Kitsap County birds

Some ways you can avoid conflict on Aisle 3 I
first posted this blog two holiday seasons ago but I think it’s worth repeating. Remember to keep your cool no matter what others are doing, and enjoy the season! Shopping during the holidays can be a real nightmare. Facing parking lots jammed with cars, performing complicated search and rescue efforts to find an available cart, and approaching aisles with your best obstacle course strategies can cause even the most happy-go-lucky holiday shopper to start up a conflict with any stranger who dares cross his path. Delivering an emotionally-charged snarky remark while juggling the sweater you’re buying for Nana doesn’t say much about your ability to spread joy or share in the holiday spirit. I can’t tell you how to manage every potential conflict you’ll face in the next month or so, but I can pass on a few tips retail workers have shared with me. Of course, I’ve added my own two cents worth on the subject and hope there’s something in here that will help you keep your cool this season. 1. Minimize the material and maximize the experience: What I mean by that is limit the amount of “stuff” you buy and, instead, think about experiences you can share with your family and friends. Throwing a potluck or hosting a game night will deliver a much better experience than being angry with those around you as you wait in line after line after line spending money you don’t have. 2. Shop online: Avoid the lines (and the other crabby people!) by hitting up your favorite stores’ websites. Check out promotion sites to find deals on price discounts, free
CONFLICTS OF INTEREST By VIVIAN SCOTT shipping, and the like. Words of caution, though: make sure you’re carving out uninterrupted computer time so you steer clear of fighting with the family when they “just won’t leave you alone.” Also, practice scanning Internet deals quickly to avoid getting to the checkout page only to discover the discount you’re counting on doesn’t apply to the items in your shopping cart. 3. Use parking lots as personal training sessions: Why get worked up when you can work out? Use the back entrance and take the first spot you see. Walk the extra distance to the front door with a smile on your face and daydream about what you’ll do with all the extra time you’ve given yourself by not circling the same aisles over and over. Unless you need to build your demolition derby skills, let the other shoppers duke it out, honk their horns, and yell obscenities. 4. Shop the little guy: I called a warehouse store to ask if they had any tips on avoiding shopper conflicts and the person who answered the phone said, “Don’t shop here.” Good point. If crowds, long lines, and oversized carts bumping into the back of your heels make you mad, shop at smaller stores that offer fewer items to fewer customers. 5. Plan to be patient: No matter what anyone else does, have control over your own emotions and reactions. Prepare yourself to take a “we’re in this together” attitude whenever possible. If the cashier is rude,

the store and then get angry with a cashier who’s helping another customer count out change. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s a pretty good piece of advice for any time of the year. — Vivian Scott’s Conflicts of Interest blog can be found on BainbridgeReview.com, the online news site of the Bainbridge Island Review.
