The five finalists to be Bremerton’s next police chief gathered at city hall on Monday night.

Bremerton police chief finalists meet at city hall By KEVAN MOORE

The public had its one and only chance to meet Bremerton’s five finalists to be the city’s next police chief Monday night. The finalists — which include a sheriff, a former sheriff, two Washington State Patrol captains and a former police chief — had a chance to mingle with the crowd throughout the evening. At one point, all five men were called to the front of the council chambers at the Norm Dicks Government Center

and spoke briefly about their careers and shared their most embarrassing moment as a police officer. The finalists include former King County Sheriff Steven Strachan, Jefferson County Sheriff Anthony Hernandez, Washington State Patrol Capt. Robert Johnson, former Santa Paula, Calif. Chief Stephen MacKinnon and WSP Capt. Stephen Sutton. Three of the men — Hernandez, Johnson and Sutton — have Bremerton connections. MacKinnon and Sutton are also finalists for See FINALISTS, A9

City refuses to release council applications By KEVAN MOORE

The City of Bremerton refused this week to release city council applications for the District 4 vacancy created by Roy Runyon’s resignation. Despite repeated requests by the Bremerton Patriot and the Central Kitsap Reporter to the mayor, the city council’s legislative assistant and council president, the documents were not turned over in time for publication. The deadline for application was Jan. 25 and as of Tuesday the applications had also not been shared with sitting city council members. Five District 4 residents have applied to fill Runyon’s seat. They include Anita

Lynn Albright, Jerald A. McDonald, Wendy Priest, Dino T. Davis and Michael Goodnow. City Council Legislative Assistant Lori Smith said Tuesday that she wasn’t comfortable releasing the applications because city councilors had not yet seen them. She insisted on checking with City Attorney Roger Lubovich who had not weighed in on the matter by mid-morning on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Smith said she asked Lubovich to make sure the applications weren’t exempt from public disclosure for personnel reasons. Tim Ford, an Assistant Attorney General for See COUNCIL, A12

With less than two weeks to go until a vote on incorporation, both proponents and opponents are forecasting victory. “We’re very happy with the message that is out there,” said Rob MacDermid, an attorney who is working with the efforts to incorporate. “We feel really good about what we’re hearing on the streets. There hasn’t been any official polling, and you never know until it’s over, but we think people do understand the advantages of becoming a city and that that will be reflected in the vote on Feb. 12.” But Jerry Vanfossen, a retired federal employee who opposes the incorporation, said he thinks the measure will be defeated. “A lot of the people I talk to just don’t see the positives to becoming a city,” Vanfossen said. “I don’t expect it to pass.” Silverdale’s incorporation will be decided by voters in the proposed incorporation area in a mail-in only ballot. Ballots have been mailed to voters and are due back to the county Feb. 12. An expected 50 percent turnout could mean as many as 4,500 votes will be cast. The Kitsap County Auditor’s office said the Silverdale incorporation ballot measure will cost taxpayers about $35,000. While Silverdale has tried to incor-

Seabeck man charged with child assault By WES MORROW

A Seabeck man was charged with the assault of a child after his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter sustained serious injuries Monday night. Jason Reeser, 34, had been living with the family since September. His bail is set at $750,000. As of Wednesday, Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Scott Wilson said the girl was not expected to survive her injuries. “She is still in critical condition and still on life support,” Wilson said. Paramedics responded to a call in the Lake Symington area at 2:41 p.m. When

they arrived the girl was experiencing seizure-like activity. Reeser told responders on the way to the hospital that he found the girl lying in her crib not acting right. When they arrived at the hospital, Reeser told medics the girl was eating a pistachio cookie, suddenly stopped eating, then vomited and went into seizure activity, according to court documents. The medical history obtained at the hospital indicated she did not have any allergies and had never experienced a seizure. Emergency room doctor’s at Harrison Medical Center in Silverdale determined the girl had a sub-dermal hematoma and

needed to be airlifted to Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital in Tacoma. A subdural hematoma occurs after the brain suffers a traumatic injury, leading to bleeding underneath the outer layer of the brain. It is a life-threatening injury. Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office dispatched detectives to Mary Bridge to interview the family. According to Wilson, it is sheriff’s office policy to bring out detectives in the case of serious injury to a minor whether it is believed to be an accident or assault. Doctors at Mary Bridge advised detectives the girl had likely suffered an acute See ASSAULT, A12

Salvation Army celebration kicks off new community center By KEVAN MOORE

It was standing room only this past Sunday at Bremerton City Hall when the Salvation Army held a kick-off celebration and groundbreaking for a new hygiene center and Corps Community Center. The project includes a renovation of the current building (built in 1965) on 6th Avenue, with a new building adjacent to it. A portion of the current facility, built in 1943, will be torn down. The overall space of the new facility will be 16,000 square feet (increased from 8,000 square feet). The facility will include renovated kitchen and dining hall for community meals, food and clothing banks, a hygiene center (shower and laundry facilities for homeless

Kitsap Transit seeks volunteers


Kitsap Transit is seeking volunteers to serve on its Citizen’s Advisory Committee (CAC). Committee members review and give suggestions on Kitsap Transit’s plans, policies and actions. The motions and decisions made by the committee are forwarded to Kitsap Transit’s Board of Commissioners for

neighbors), case worker offices, classrooms and a church for Sunday services. Major Jim Baker, who has been an officer with the Salvation Army for 33 years and has spent the last 12 years in Bremerton, said the effort to expand and improve the Salvation Army’s downtown facility has been kicked around since a meeting in 2003. But he said that the idea wasn’t his or anyone else’s. “It originated in the heart of God, who commands us over and over in the Bible to care for the poor,” Baker told the crowd on Sunday. Also on hand at Sunday’s event was Olympic gold medalist Nathan Adrian. This past Christmas, Adrian, whose father, Jim, has been involved with the Salvation Army for about 20 years, made the orga-

nization his charity of choice. He told the large crowd about his experience of going to a Target store as part of a toy drive to shop for teenagers, a group often overlooked in favor of younger children. Speaking about his father’s influence, Adrian said, “He’s just always had such a charitable personality and heart. Seeing that always gave me a sense of, ‘I need to give back.’ “ During a groundbreaking ceremony down the street from city hall at the site of the new center, newly elected Congressman Derek Kilmer said that the day was marked by hope and joy. In his brief remarks, Kilmer relayed an anecdote about the famous anthropologist Margaret Mead in which she was asked about how she could deter-

input and/or final approval. Volunteers must commit to spending up to four hours each month on committee activities, including attending the monthly CAC Meeting the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in Bremerton. During their term, members are given a Kitsap Transit ID card allowing them free rides on Kitsap Transit services. If you can devote time to the committee and have an interest in public transit, please call 360 478-5494 before April 30.

Humane Society dedicates cattery to two founders In the early days of the Kitsap Humane Society, there was only room for nine cats at a make-shift shelter in a shed at the county’s dog pound. But through years and years of hard work by Almeda Harris Wilson, a state-of-theart cattery was dedicated Tuesday in honor of her. “When we started, way back then, there wasn’t any place to take stray cats,” Wilson said. “We made an indoor area at the dog pound and had a cage built that could old nine cats.” It was after a neighbor found an injured dog and took it to the dog pound, only to find that there was no one there on the weekends in the 1960s that she was able to finally get people on board and help her create the humane society and the first shelter. “When there was nowhere for the injured dog to go, he called the police and an officer came out and shot the dog,” she said.

“That was it. I went to city hall and complained to the mayor and he said ‘Why don’t you get one started?’ So I did.” Wilson is the founding director of the Kitsap Humane Society and has contributed to its success since the early 1960s. When she saw how badly an animal shelter was needed, she went to work to recruit “the big shots” in and around Bremerton, said the 99-year-old Wilson, who still lives on her own. “I went down to the offices at Fourth and Pacific, where all the attorneys in town worked and I just went doorto-door asking them to be on the board of directors,” Wilson said. One of the first people she asked was William Mahan. Mahan served as a founding board member and also was remembered at the dedication Tuesday. His daughter, Kathy, appeared in his honor. He died in 2006. Wilson said the dog pound

But as the population of the county grew, an even bigger shelter was needed and the current shelter was built on Dickey Road in Silverdale. It opened in 1989. Wilson marveled at the new accommodations in the cattery as she toured it Tuesday. “This is just so nice,” she

said. “We would have never dreamed of anything this nice in the beginning.” The cattery, which opened in early 2011, can house 42 cats. Interim Executive Director Eric Steven told visitors on Tuesday that it is “almost always full.” “But last year we took in 2,301 cats and about 90 percent of them were re-homed (adopted),” he said. The new facility has sepa-

rate living areas for each cat and each has its own litter box in a side area to its living space. The room has natural lighting. Cats can see outdoors and they are surrounded with classical music. “It makes for a better environment for the cats and for those who come to see them,” Stevens said. “It’s just much more relaxed and less stressful, away from the (dog) kennels and the noise.” Wilson has always been a cat lover. She grew up on a Kitsap County farm and remembered her first cat. “He was a white short haired male,” she said. “I named him White Man. I would sit behind the (wood) stove with him to keep warm.” Today she has two cats, Pixie Bob, a long haired black and white cat and Lucy, a Siamese. “She’s really the neighbor’s cat,” Wilson said. “But she prefers to live with me.” Wilson told supporters, friends and neighbors who

attended the dedication that twice she tried to start a human society, but failed. “I was 47 years old and I told myself I just had to make it work this time,” she said. Although there had been a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Kitsap County in the early 1900s, it dissolved several years before World War II. By the 1950s the problem with strays became critical and finally Wilson and others were able to get a shelter going in the 1960s. “Lots has changed since then,” she said. “Today, it’s almost like the cats have their own apartments.” About 40 supporters, volunteers, staff and friends of the Kitsap Humane Society attended the dedication which included the unveiling of a plaque on the wall outside the cattery. It pays tribute to both Wilson and Mahan.

Silverdale incorporation | What do you think? Six compelling reasons to vote “yes” Why? There are at least six compelling reasons that stand out. First … Local Control. Although the county established a vehicle (i.e. the Central Kitsap Community Council) for providing the citizens of our community a “voice” in issues pertaining to Central Kitsap, the Council has no authority except to make recommendations and offer suggestions. In addition, Silverdale is just one area, among many, that is represented on the council. Having served as the president of this council for three years, I value its role and appreciate the fine men and women who serve on it. But it’s not the same as having a locally elected council, with authority, that serves the citizens of Silverdale. Second … “Replaces” County Governance. Despite the objection that the City of Silverdale would establish “another layer” of governance, the fact is it simply replaces county governance with a locally elected council. Third … Better Police Protection. Although the county sheriff’s department is among the finest in the state, they don’t have the resources to provide Silverdale with the kind of police protection its citizens expect, and would be able to receive, if Silverdale was a city. Fourth … Financial Strength. Silverdale would come out of the blocks with substantial financial resources (property & sales tax revenue between $9 and $10 million) virtually guarantying that property taxes would not increase. Not only that, but any improvement in services, that can be expected, will not cause a tax increase.



The 2013 Legislative Session is under way, and Washington’s exemplary Open Records Act is again under attack. Citizens should take note of a proposal that poses a great threat to Washingtonians’ ability to gain access to public records — one that would dangerously undercut transparency in government. House Bill 1128 would let government agencies limit the number of hours that they devote to responding to public records requests, as long as they make other documents available to the public, such as budgets, agendas and minutes, resolutions and ordinances. Courts could also decide if fulfilling a records request is “burdensome” as a factor in rejecting a request for public documents. The bill is sponsored by 26 members of the House, including Rep. Sherry Appleton of the 23rd District and was the subject of a public hearing in the House Committee on Local Government on Jan. 25. There is no doubt that the state Open Records Act has been abused on occasion over the years by citizens who have submitted requests for voluminous amounts of documents, and that government employees must spend many hours seeking and supplying documents that are requested by the public. The Open Records Act, however, should not be amended because of the rare instances wher≠≠e someone who seemingly has an ax to grind against city hall has asked for a pile of public documents, or because of the time it takes to fulfill complex and sometimes extensive requests for records. The creation, distribution and archiving of public records is a basic responsibility of government and a cost of doing business. Our trust in government is maintained by our ability to look behind the curtain, to see the workings of government beyond agendas and meeting minutes. Maintaining that trust is more valuable than the slight savings some government agencies might see from this proposed change in the Open Records Act.

Your opinion counts...

Fifth … Ability to Secure Grants. Despite a number of county “improvements” in Silverdale, there are many significant projects that lack funds. As a city, Silverdale would qualify for literally millions of dollars for such projects that would improve roads, sidewalks, lighting, etc. And finally … A Seat at the Table. Being a city, Silverdale would have a seat at regional and county boards, thereby giving the citizens a “voice” in decisions that impact the community. Why Now? Many people and businesses within the boundaries of Silverdale already think it is a city. They are surprised when they learn it is not, even though it looks and acts like one. For years, county elected officials have assumed that Silverdale would be incorporated. In fact, they have acknowledged that since the county is primarily designed to provide rural services, not urban services, the incorporation of Silverdale is inevitable. And that’s what the Growth Management Act has always prescribed for Urban Growth Areas (UGA’s). The longer we wait, the more difficult it will be for the county to afford the incorporation of Silverdale. So, for the sake of the county, and the citizens of Silverdale, NOW is the time to incorporate. Carl Johnson Bremerton

Incorporation is the best decision The best thing that can happen for the Silverdale business community would be the incorporation of Silverdale. The closer the government, the better the management. See LETTERS, A5

When Silverdale is incorporated, it will be a Washington code city, well defined by state law with a professional manager and a seven-member part-time council elected at large from their local neighborhoods. This is a replacement form of government designed to manage urban communities. Local voters controlling permitting, land use, taxes and services will build a better community. The chairman, secretary and treasurer, as well as all the other members of Citizens United for Silverdale except two, are self-employed and one of the two is retired. They are all well established in their businesses and careers and have nothing to gain from the incorporation of Silverdale except the obvious benefit of living and working in a better community. If you were in attendance at the forum sponsored by the Central Kitsap Community Council and the Silverdale Chamber of Commerce on Jan. 17, you already know that the incorporation of Silverdale will add no additional tax burden or government. What we learned from the other recently incorporated cities is that if the voters of a new city don’t want additional regulation or taxes then it won’t happen. None of the cities represented raised taxes, none had a business and occupation tax and only half even had a city business license. Of the two charging for a business license, one city charged $10 and the other charged $40. Those cities provided additional services to small businesses |

including business counseling and marketing assistance. As Silverdale continues to grow, delaying incorporation will only cause greater transition problems for both Silverdale and the county when it finally does happen. Fortunately, that transition will be mitigated by the normal practice of the new city contracting back to the county for most of its services. The transition is a smooth and orderly threephase process that takes approximately five years. All the cities consulted with have far less operating costs today than they would had they not incorporated Many have lowered their taxes. The point is that local decisions will be made by local citizens who are most directly affected by the consequence of those decisions. I am amazed at the number of people I meet who are surprised to find out Silverdale is not a city. Silverdale looks like a city, feels like a city and the Growth Management Act expects it to be a city. Silverdale needs to retain and strengthen its own identity. Real leadership is seeing and understanding the consequences of our decisions farther into the future than anyone else around us. Now is the time. John M. Taylor Silverdale

No need for change I received my ballot today to cast my vote to either support or reject the Silverdale incorporation movement. I have been to meetings and forums and have yet to see a lot of interest by the everyday

folks in the area. In the first place we do not need any more folks thinking we need something more than we have here. At this time there is so much turmoil in our system starting at the federal level all the way down to multitudes of cities in trouble. I have to question the need for any changes. There may or may not be an increase in our taxes in the short term. For sure in due time when you get a group of city level politicians arguing over mostly unimportant issues we have to pay. Remember campaign promises are just that and most are never fulfilled. I only hope that when everyone makes the decision to mark their ballot they remember if this issue is approved we will all be stuck with something that can never be reversed. A lot of cities in trouble would love to do just that. My vote will be in the mail tomorrow as against incorporation. Samuel F. Foster Bremerton

Incorporation is not necessary I read with great interest the “Yes” and “No” articles concerning Silverdale incorporation in the Jan. 18 edition of the Central Kitsap Reporter. I enjoyed Jack Hamilton’s article. I found it to be well researched and informative. I found that it was very substantive. On the other hand, I found the article written by Randy

Bigenwald to be wholly without substance and full of generalities. Reading Mr. Bigenwald’s article, I was informed in the topic sentence of the third paragraph that “many issues that are the result of Silverdale’s growth during the last three decades have largely gone unresolved.” However none of these “problems” were addressed. What are these problems? I’m just lead to believe that these problems should be taken care of by incorporation. At the end of the third paragraph the writer informs us that “time after time, urban areas are improved by incorporation.” My father lives on Old Frontier Road and would be part of a new “city” if Silverdale is incorporated. He lives on 15 acres. His nearest neighbor to the south has 10 acres. These are but a few examples of the many similar-type residences that would be included in the proposed city. Are properties such as these typically what comprise an urban area? A substantial number of people within the proposed city limits are semi-rural. The stated goal behind the incorporation of Silverdale is to give Silverdale residents a bigger say in how their city would be governed. That has the sound of a good idea. I’m sure that the altruistic love of community would carry over into the “new city government.” I’m sure that none of the Citizens United for Silverdale committee would be looking for jobs

Page A5

with six figure incomes and benefits that city officials in Bremerton now enjoy. I’m sure the organizers behind this effort would all be content with a reasonable wage, or perhaps even volunteer their time to this new worthy endeavor. I’m sure that none of them are self-serving. It’s long been established that all politicians and their wannabe admirers always have our best interest at heart. I urge a “No” vote on Silverdale incorporation. Vaughn H. Smith Silverdale

It’s a mistake Silverdale incorporation is a big mistake! It has failed several times in the past for good reason. Citizens United for Silverdale talk about a need for a city, but that only comes at a cost to you. We are now supported by Kitsap County and doing just fine. Making Silverdale a city will negatively impact the whole county. Just look around at all the small cities failing in our area. Like them, Silverdale

is only a retail center. We have no big industries to support us. Citizens United for Silverdale talks and promises us a lot, but when we are a city we have to pay for our own fire and police protection. We will have to pay for another layer of government. Costs for a city manager, council members, municipal court and prosecutor are not cheap. I’d like to know where the money will come from. I attended the incorporation meetings all last year. People from Island Lake and Chico were against incorporation, along with the Olympic View area. Citizens United for Silverdale decided that we would not be able to vote wins we were all “no” voters, but now they have mailed out ballots to apartments and senior homes in Silverdale that house many elderly people and many of them new in the area who are not wellinformed on the issues. There will be a very small percentage of our beloved Silverdale community members voting — not fair. Donna Butts Silverdale

Library receives $200,000

Kitsap Regional Library and the KRL Foundation have been awarded a $200,000 grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation for the purpose of creating a mobile technical lab designed to serve Kitsap County teens, especially those considered to be at risk. “We believe this grant gives us a way to launch what will be a long-term mission for KRL: Creating “maker-space” resources to help patrons become creators and not just consumers of information,” said KRL Director Jill Jean. The grant allows KRL to transport creative technology to its Coffee Oasis partner locations in Bremerton, Port Orchard and Poulsbo, as well as allowing it to develop “Creation Labs” in libraries, Jean said. Jean said KRL expects to have its mobile lab, called the “Flash Drive,” running by September of 2013. Leigh Ann Winterowd, assistant branch manager and teen librarian at the Sylvan Way Branch, was selected to lead the project. The KRL Flash Drive will tour the county on a regular schedule to reach out to teens at Coffee Oasis locations in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Poulsbo and at KRL branch libraries. The van will transport equipment to the teaching locations. Traditional libraries offer an irreplaceable wealth of knowledge and guidance that inspires teens to explore the worlds around and within them, but they often lack the cutting-edge technology and expert guidance teens need to activate their interests. This project will expand teens’ access to traditional library resources while empowering them with the technology to express and create. The Flash Drive will support building “soft skills” such as collaboration, imagination and critical thinking while also offering teens functional science and technology skills through the creation of gaming software. The program will focus on developing tangible products at each session, eventually encouraging teams to create games that incorporate artwork, video and audio.

Piano man helps keep Kitsap County in tune By Leslie Kelly

Leslie Kelly/staff photo

Leslie Kelly/Staff Photo

Ken Owens tunes a piano at Seventh Day Adventist Church in Poulsbo.

Have tuner will travel. That’s how Ken Owens looks at his job. As a piano tuner and technician, Owens travels throughout Kitsap and Jefferson counties making sure there are no sour notes when musicians sit down to play the piano. “You don’t necessarily have to play the piano to be able to work on them,” Owens said. “But you have to be able to hear when they aren’t sounding right.” Owens isn’t really the piano man, although he plays some and took lessons as a child. But he is musical. He started by playing the saxophone. But when his high school band needed a bassoon player, he took on that challenge. He was so good at it, he played first chair at Walla Walla College. “I thought the bassoon was really a neat instrument,” Owens said. “I did well with it. So I just stayed with it.” But his interest in numbers led him to major in account-

Engineering fair set Science and engineering enthusiasts will find a home at The Museum of Flight on Feb. 9, as the Museum again hosts the dynamic Popsicle Stick Bridge Contest and Engineering Fair. Doors open for the Bridge Contest at 8 a.m., while the Engineering Fair runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Both events are free. The Museum theater will echo with the sounds of cheering high school students during the annual Popsicle Stick Bridge Contest. The event is hosted by the Younger Member Forum of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and challenges high school student to design and build miniature bridges using only Popsicle sticks and white glue. The bridges will be judged on aesthet-

ics, strength and efficiency. Ultimately, each design is tested to the breaking point with a hydraulic press in full view of participants and cheering fans. Winners will be announced at noon. The Museum and the Puget Sound Engineering Council celebrate National Engineers Week with a family-friendly engineering fair. Local chapters of national societies representing the entire span of engineering disciplines will staff booths all day. Representatives from NASA, Boeing and other high-tech companies will be on hand with fascinating demonstrations and displays. University engineering departments and student clubs will also be represented.

Port commissioners to meet

The Port of Bremerton commissioners will have a special work study session at 6 p.m. Feb. 5 to discuss a port-wide restructuring plan as proposed by Port staff. They will meet in the Bill Mahan Conference Room, Port Administration Offices, Bremerton National Airport Terminal Building, 8850 SW Highway 3, Bremerton Port administration has been meeting to discuss

port operations, manpower and financials following Commission action to terminate the Bremerton Marina privatization initiative and to address the substantial budget deficit that remains. The proposed plan is designed to allow for a more efficient organization and will be presented to the board during the work study session. There will be a public

comment time at the meeting for both the public and port employees on the plan proposal and ideas leading to more efficiency and profitability. Comments on plan proposal and recommendations toward efficiency and profitability can also be submitted to Ginger Waye, Clerk of the Board, at, no later than 2 p.m. Feb. 8.

ing and after graduating, he spent years as an accountant, a salesman, the president of a credit union and a bank auditor. He even taught accounting for a while in Oregon. “The stress got to me,” he said of that career. “I decided I’d had enough.” So about 12 years ago, he began looking for a career that would include his love of music. He opted to become a piano technician. The schooling for that was a year-long program at the Randy Potter Piano Training School in Bend, Ore. It included a variety of classes where he learned to diagnose “piano illnesses” and practiced any repair a piano might need. “Being a technician is a lot more than just tuning pianos,” he said. “There’s so many things that can go wrong with a piano.” For example, he said, repairs typically include broken strings, putting on new hammers, tightening loose tuning pins and replacing missing or broken parts. “Some of the pianos I’ve worked on are so old that parts are no longer available,” he said. “That means I may have to actually carve the needed piece. And I have business associates – welders and machinists – I can call on to when I need something done that I can’t do myself.” The typical tools of the trade are tuning hammers. Each one can cost from $150 to $1,000. Owens has six tuning hammers that travel with him. Sometimes he can use up

• Pool Table • Internet Access • Free Coffee • Pac-Man and Play Station 2

to three of them on just one tuning job. “They each have a different function,” he said of the hammers. “In the business, they tell us to buy the tool when you need it. So over time, I get more and more of them.” Generally, pianos need tuning every season, he said. “Humidity affects them,” he said. “It changes the tension on the strings. So when it’s humid, strings tighten and the pitch goes up. When it’s less humid the opposite happens. And even the wood can swell causing the crown of the piano to go up.” While he has a loyal customer base including pianos in homes, churches, community centers and even professional music halls, he does get calls to tune pianos that haven’t been touched in years. “Those can be a challenge,” he said. “Adjustments make the piano play more smoothly and some of my customers will have me come every three months. Others I do every six or nine months. But I do get those calls where the piano hasn’t been tuned in years.” His fees for repairs and tuning aren’t something he makes public, he said, because every job is unique. But he is competitive with other technicians in the area and participates in continued training seminars with the Piano Technicians Guild in Tacoma. Owens suggested that a piano should have a complete tuning and check-up at least every couple of years. “It’s like that 80,000 mile

check-up for your car,” he said. “It needs all the fine adjustments so that the piano will play even and gives you better control of the sound.” Some calls are routine. But his job isn’t without surprises. “I had a lady call and tell me she just couldn’t get the keys to play on her playerpiano,” he said. “When I went to her house to check it out, I figured out why. She had at least a pound of dry dog food under the high notes and about that much white rice in the mid section. It was an older piano and we figured that mice had been storing the food in there.” At one house, he was asked to check on a baby grand that a music composer was having trouble with. “The composer often wrote at the keyboard and he said there might be a few pencils that had rolled off the piano into the strings,” Owens said. “I found 27.” Owens doesn’t keep track of the number of pianos he’s worked on in his years as a technician, but he figures it’s in the thousands. Regardless of how busy he is, he has one rule for his work. “It doesn’t matter if I’m working at an expensive home on a grand piano, or at a more typical home on an old piano,” he said. “The customer comes first. I treat everyone the same, with care, concern and respect. It’s just the right way to do business.”

When many people picture high school athletes getting ready to go to the state tournament, they picture kids with pads and helmets, kleats or track spikes, but not bowling balls. Two Bremerton area high school teams are putting people on notice, letting everyone know that bowling can be exciting. Students from both Bremerton and Olympic high schools bowled in the West Central District competition last Saturday and both qualified for the State Tournament this coming weekend. But it wasn’t easy for either team. Olympic was on the bubble all day. The district tournament consists of two sections: three regular games, in which each of a team’s five players bowl a full game; and 4 baker games, in which each of the five players bowls two frames to make one complete 10-frame game. When the baker games started, Olympic sat in fifth place with a score of 2425, just six points behind Everett. The top four teams in the 2A/3A division would advance to State, and Everett stood in the Trojans’ way. To add to the excitement, the two teams bowled in adjacent lanes — the top

two individual bowlers in the 2A/3A category, Everett’s Candice Goldfinch and Olympic’s Kendra Willis, led their teams in a battle where every single pin was crucial. Goldfinch finished with more pins in the regular gmes than Willis, averaging 218 to Willis’s 198, but she couldn’t hold off Olympic’s play in the baker games. In the end, the Trojans overcame Everett by a narrow ten pin margin, 3025 to 3015. “We were the underdog,” said Olympic coach Lee Morris. “I would think that probably on a normal bowling day, we probably would have come in seventh, maybe sixth, but on that day … they bowled phenomenal.” Olympic’s Kendra Willis finished the competition with the second highest individual total in the three regular games. She struck out at the end of the tournament (which unlike baseball, is a good thing) giving the Trojans their 10 point lead and helping stamp their ticket to State. While Olympic battled to stay alive, Bremerton was in a fight of its own with Timberline. The Knights went undefeated during the regular season, cruising to a Narrows League victory, but on Saturday they found themselves matched up to an opponent that wouldn’t

back down. At the end of the three regular games, Timberline held the slightest edge against Bremerton, a five point lead. “Being undefeated this year, we had to set our own goals early on to keep pushing ourselves,” said Bremerton coach Dean Wagner. Wagner said those goals were to achieve a team score of 800 for regular games and 170 for each baker game. The first and second place teams were matched up as lane partners, bringing an early preview of possibilities for the state tournament. “That was good for us to be against the best other team there, and we battled them all day long,” Wagner said. Despite meeting their goals in both regular and baker games, the Knights were unable to topple Timberline. “That’s why we said we did our job,” Wagner said. “(Timberline) earned it, cause my girls, they shot really well this weekend.” Wagner’s team had to deal with an injury partway through the tournament, when Natalie Stauffer tweaked her left knee. Sabrina Tucker came in for the injured Stauffer, helping the Knights maintain their qualifying position. Stauffer and Tucker will join teammates Lexus Honeywell, Helaina Hilligoss, Megan Wittenberg, Abby King and Samantha Jose at State. The State Tournament will consist of six regular games and 14 baker games, more than double the number of frames bowled in the District Tournament. Hilligoss said part of the secret to their success is team chemistry. “We get along a lot better than previous years,”

Hilligoss said. “We work together not only in bowling, but we work together as friends. We’ve been bowling together for years.” Several members of the Bremerton squad bowl together outside of school. Wittenberg, King and Hilligoss have competed in a Saturday league. King and Hilligoss have been bowling together for six years. Bremerton and Olympic will have strong competition, like Timberline, to contend with; but as Olympic’s coach Morris said of the District meet, anything can happen. “We’ll be tough competitors,” King said. “We’re going to put our best foot forward. Even if we don’t place first or second I know we’ll be in there.” And there’s one thing King said the Knights would like to see at the State Tournament: supporters. The State Tournament will take place Feb. 1-2, at Narrows Plaza Bowl in University Place.

the Poulsbo police chief job. The city held internal panels Tuesday that were closed to the public. Mayor Patty Lent was expected to use feedback from those panels and comment cards from Monday night to make her selection for the city’s new chief. The city council will have final approval, which could come within the next few weeks. Strachan spoke first Monday night. In addition to being a former sheriff, Strachan said he was a chief in Kent, a city council member and state legislator. He said those experiences give “me a good perspective about the importance of connecting communities, public safety and business development all those things that matter.” Strachan shared a story about a routine traffic stop in the middle of the day where he encountered a distraught woman. In an effort to break

the tension, Strachan noticed the woman’s purse and asked her if it was a Coach bag. “She looked up at me through her tears and said, ‘Are you the fashion police?’ And I had no idea what to say.” Hernandez began his career with the U.S. Marshal Service before returning to Bremerton to work with the Department of Defense as a federal police officer. He became a Bremerton reserve officer in the 1990s for about three years. From there, he worked in Pierce and Kitsap counties as a crisis counselor for children in a lock-down facility. After serving in various command staff capacities in Jefferson County, he became sheriff. “Some of you might ask, ‘Why would an incumbent sheriff want to come to the City of Bremerton?’ Simple. This is my hometown. This is where I want to be. One thing I always told myself was if I had an opportunity to come back to Bremerton I’d take that opportunity. So, that’s why I’m here tonight, because

I want to be your chief.” Hernandez’ embarrassing story unfolded when he got a cup of coffee and forgot to turn his radio on. A short while later, his sheriff and undersheriff rolled up alongside of him and asked him if he was having a good time. “Yeah, I’m having a great time. Why?” Hernandez said. “He goes, because why is your sheriff and undersheriff having to go to a burglary in progress while you sit here and drink coffee?’ Later on they told me, I bet that tightened him up.” Johnson, who lives in Bremerton, went to high school in North Mason, went to college in Yakima and then went to work at the Mason County Sheriff ’s Office. He moved to Seattle, went back to school and worked as a corrections officer in King County. He joined the

Bremerton police in 1977 before joining the state patrol eight years later. “Honestly, the reason I left Bremerton to work at the state patrol was because at the time the state patrol had airplanes and Bremerton didn’t,” Johnson joked. Johnson eventually became district commander in Bremerton, overseeing WSP activity from Canada to Oregon. His most embarrassing moment caem when he landed for lunch and hit a hanger with the inside of the plane’s wing and then had to call in to Olympia. “That was the longest flight in the world from the Okanogan airport to Olympia airport knowing what was in store when I got there,” he said. “They didn’t let me down.” McKinnon started his career in New England

before working his way west to Arizona. From there, he got involved in international policing with the U.S. State Department and United Nations working in Kosovo and Haiti. When he came back to the states he went to work as the chief of police in Santa Paula, Calif. where he was eventually terminated. McKinnon’s most embarrassing moment came while he was the deputy chief of police on Martha’s Vineyard. McKinnon said that Billy Joel and Christy Brinkley had just gotten married when they visited downtown. He said some of his officers had pushed back a crowd, but Brinkley didn’t seem to be in a hurry to leave. “I asked her, ‘Is there anything I can help you with,’” McKinnon recalled. Brinkley responded by telling him, “I would really like to go with

my husband, but he’s been pushed back by your guys.” Sutton’s career began in Bremerton almost 25 years ago to the day. Highlights from his career with the state patrol include working to create El Protector, an Hispanic community outreach program, and working with the then newly created Homeland Security Department to create a state task force. Sutton’s embarrassing anecdote came early in his career while working as a dispatcher. He somehow managed to call out an armed robbery in progress for what was actually routine shoplifting. Officers eventually located the suspects and held them at gunpoint. “They had actually stolen a couple batteries from Radio Shack … I didn’t have much of a rear end after that,” he said.


for them. “They said that in most instances, their taxes have gone down and they’ve seen additional income because as a city they are eligible to receive millions of dollars in grants from federal government agencies that’s being left on the table.” Vanfossen, however, said that he doesn’t buy the argument that becoming a city isn’t going to cost residents something. “Just setting up shop is going to cost something,” he said. “We’ll have seven city councilmen that will be paid salaries. And we’ll have clerical staff and they’ve got to have somewhere to work. All of that is money that could be used to patch potholes in the streets.” Another argument proponents have is that government will be more accountable because it will be more local. “(Kitsap) County government is doing a good job,” said MacDermid. “But their legal responsibility prevents them from focusing on the needs of Silverdale. They have to focus on the entire county. The attention that Silverdale requires as the second or third largest city in the county can only be accomplished through

incorporation. Silverdale doesn’t have the oversight management that it should have.” But Vanfossen said he doesn’t agree. “County government has always been responsive to our needs,” he said. “If we have a city government here, we will still be relying on the county for services and its the county that will be assessing the value of our property. To me it just seems like we’re adding a level of government that isn’t needed.” Vanfossen said in the circles that he travels, there are those who know that they either support incorporation, or that they don’t. “It’s those on the fence that will decide this election,” he said. “They are either people who are new to the area and haven’t made up their minds yet. Or they just aren’t interested and haven’t educated themselves on the issues.” Those voters are a concern to MacDermid, too. “When you think about the fact that as many as 4,500 people could vote in this election and there were only about 70 to 90 people who attended the forum, you begin to wonder if they are going to engage and study the issues around incorporation,” he said. “When you talk to people in the community, many of them say they thought Silverdale was already a city. They have no idea that it’s not. And when you tell them that by becoming a city, Silverdale could retain tax dollars to be spent to improve things locally, they come to see the advantage of being a city.”

By having its own sevenmember council with its sole focus being Silverdale, government will be much more responsive to local voters than the county commission, he said. MacDermid said that when he first moved to the area in the mid 1980s, he voted against incorporation. “At that time I didn’t appreciate the significance of incorporation. I didn’t study it. But the next time, 10 or 12 years later (19992000 votes) I voted for it because I knew it was the right thing for Silverdale.” He thinks the reason the city hasn’t incorporated is because voters fear the unknown. “What if we retained those tax dollars here and focused on Silverdale?” he said. “Can you imagine how great we could be?” But those who oppose incorporation don’t think that becoming a city will provide better services or solve any issues. “It will be awhile until any city services would be up and running,” Vanfossen said. “What happens in the meantime? And they (proponents) keep saying it will improve the library? The library is controlled by a separate taxing district and being a city wouldn’t solve anything about the library. They say we may contract with the county for other services like police. But if the county isn’t getting our tax dollars, won’t those police services be negatively affected? “You can’t take a piece of the pie out of the whole and expect it to still taste good. You have to make up for that piece.”


porate several times in the past, issues over whether it should or shouldn’t become a city have always been heated. Some say incorporation will allow the city to have more local control over how its tax dollars are spent. But those who oppose incorporation say becoming a city will just lead to another layer of government that will mean more costs to taxpayers. Civic groups and the Citizens United for Silverdale have hosted forums where representatives of cities that have recently incorporated spoke about their experiences. Those who oppose becoming a city, however, have said that the forums were heavily biased in favor of incorporation. “We felt the best way to let the public know what it may be like to become a city was to let those who have done just that tell us about their experiences,” said MacDermit, of Citizens United for Silverdale. “Universally, they all said if they had to do it over they would still become cities because it has proven to have been the best thing

Tracyton time capsule will have to keep waiting By WES MORROW

People bury time capsules to dig them back up again. A new generation inevitably comes, and when they pull the container from its temporary tomb, everyone marvels at the difference between past and present. Teachers bury time capsules so a new generation of students can compare their experience at a school to their parents or grandparents who went there before them. When a time capsule finally emerges from the ground, things are always different from when it was buried. But for one particular time capsule, placed in the ground at Tracyton

Elementary School more than 20 years ago, things will likely be unrecognizable. An elementary school class buried the time capsule during a celebration in the 1980s. It was put in the ground, apparently with no planned schedule for removal. Tracyton was one of two schools with low enrollment chosen by the school district for closure in 2007. When the school was scheduled for demolition, the district’s facilities department located the time capsule, along with all other underground equipment on the school’s campus. David Beil, Central Kitsap School District community relations director, said the

A placque is all that marks Tracyton’s centennial celebration. capsule is buried in a place where it won’t be disturbed by the school’s demolition; but it won’t be removed either. The time capsule will continue to be undisturbed until a new generation of students return to Tracyton,

if that ever happens. The district doesn’t have any plans to rebuild the school, but they aren’t planning to sell the land either. It’s possible the time capsule may eventually make its way back above ground, “at some point, and this will be

many years down the road, when enrollment begins to turn around and increase again,” Beil said. Miranda Noe attended Tracyton in the 1980s. She and her class were part of the group that buried the time capsule. When Noe heard Tracyton was scheduled for demolition, she said the time capsule was the first thing that came to her mind. She posted about it on Facebook and several of her old classmates said they were curious as well. It seemed Noe wasn’t the only one whose mind had been occupied by the capsule’s burial. “It sticks in our minds as a huge part of our elementary days,” Noe said. “I remem-

ber having a big thing at school to bury it.” While the capsule’s burial stands out among her elementary school memories, Noe admitted she can’t remember anything they put inside it. “I think it’s probably silly fifth or sixth grade stuff,” she said. “I remember we made a flag for the celebration. I have no idea what else is in (the rest of) it.” Noe now lives in Snohomish. If the day ever comes when the district pulls the time capsule from the ground, she said, she wouldn’t mind attending. “I think I would. I think a couple of my classmates would,” Noe said. “(Tracyton) was a big part of us.”

Bremerton counselor marked for excellence By WES MORROW

“It’s our whole system that is involved in that climate change,” said Bremerton High School Career Counselor Chris Swanson. “You have to have a climate and a context in which to put that discussion.” It might seem like Swanson is talking about something like green energy or saving the planet’s environment, and given the school’s upcoming Energy Week or its recent imple-

ence. Almost 600 counselors attended the annual event. More than 900 belong to the association. Swanson came to Bremerton High School 13 years ago with his wife who works at Vinland Elementary School in North Kitsap. Not long after his appearance, noticeable improvements began to take place at the high school — though Swanson will be the first to tell you those improvements come from the team effort and dedication of the entire school staff.

“It was kind of cool to be recognized,” Swanson said, “but honestly to me it’s not as much a personal award as a team award and a school award.” In the last decade, Bremerton High School’s on-time graduation rate has steadily increased from 57.3 percent in 2003 to 81.6 percent in 2011. Over the same time span, the number of students at the school eligible for free or reduced price lunch, a generally accepted measure of lowincome families, increased from 32 percent in 2003 to 57 percent in 2012. Higher numbers of students from low-income families typically correlate to lower graduation rates within schools which makes Bremerton’s figures all the more impressive. The school’s graduation rate is higher than the state average, while at the same time having a higher lowincome population than the state as a whole (56.9 percent to the state’s 45.4 percent). Swanson attributes this success to Bremerton’s multi-pronged approach. According to him, 20 or 30 years ago counselors did a really good job helping the top-tier students, the ones who sought out the office’s help, but many of the other students often fell by the wayside. Now, however, the Bremerton staff is looking for new ways to reach all different student demographics. “It’s not a one-size-fitsall approach,” Swanson

said. “We’re trying to work all the edges to work with kids’ individual interests and needs.” Initiatives like Navigation 101 have helped students take ownership of their class schedules and coursework, Swanson said. “Students are very willing to take on rigorous work, challenging work,” Swanson said, “if they have the opportunity and know it’s going to help them.” Counseling work at Bremerton certainly isn’t without its ups and downs, a fact that Swanson isn’t afraid to admit. The percentage of Bremerton graduates going directly to 2-year, 4-year college or technical schools has been consistently between 5 and 10 percent, lower than the state as a whole. In 2010 and 2011, the school’s percentage dropped dramatically, to nearly 20 percent below the state. This number worries Swanson, but he doesn’t hide from the statistic. Instead, he highlights it. “Where we still need improvement, that’s where it is,” Swanson said. He said they’re looking into the date, trying to figure out what caused the drop. The economy, they believe, was a contributing factor. It’s impossible to tell at this point if the numbers will improve or how long it will take. But if the past is anything to go by, Swanson and his team, from the teachers to the students to the parents, won’t back down from the challenge.

• when even the dog doesn’t want to follow the boys. • when a teacher tells me my son is “full of personality” or has “a lively disposition.” • when the boys and their friends run inside the house looking for “jugs of water,” “duct tape,” or “a really long stick.” • when my 6-year-old asks anyone, “Do you want to see something funny?” • when my preteen wants an email account. • when a child with all his adult teeth says he has a loose one. • when I overhear my kids say, “Let’s pretend the whole house is the Death Star.” Yeah, come to think of it, I’m anxious quite a bit. Being around children is similar to having your heart, guts and nerves exist on the outside of your body. “I just mopped the floors” and “careful, that might be dangerous” mean nothing to them. So, you know, this whole pedophobia thing is seeming kind of fishy. According to the lawyer representing the teacher in Ohio, it is a real disease. And maybe it is. But to me, it’s sounding a lot like plain old parenthood.

Ambassador to Bahrain visits Stennis at sea From the USS John C. Stennis Public Affairs

U.S. 5TH FLEET AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY – The U.S. Ambassador to the Kingdom of Bahrain visited aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) underway in the Arabian Gulf, Jan. 23-24. A mbassador Thomas C. Krajeski and his wife, Bonnie, were accompanied by the Italian Ambassador to Bahrain Alberto Vecchi and French Ambassador to Bahrain Christian Testot. “This experience has been amazing,” said Krajeski. “I wanted to meet the young Americans and see what they’re doing. I’m stunned by how good everyone is at their job and the variety of people.” While on board, they observed f light deck operations and toured several spaces throughout the ship including the combat direction center, hangar bay, weapons magazine, carrier air-traffic control center and a berthing area. The purpose of the visit

Stennis Carrier Strike Group (JCSCSG) leadership and

observe the unique contribution the JCSCSG brings to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsi-

bility (AOR). “It’s important for us to understand and actually see

first-hand what’s going on and how we’re keeping peace in the region,” said Mrs. Krajeski. Additionally, Sailors enjoyed the presence of the diplomatic leaders aboard Stennis. “Being able to eat breakfast with the U.S. Ambassador to Bahrain was an opportunity that a lot of people don’t get,” said Aviation Structural Mechanic 2nd Class Kelland Guerin, from Moses Lake, Wash. “I enjoyed the chance to listen to his views. It made me take a step back and realize the importance of Stennis being in this area.” The JCSCSG, consisting of John C. Stennis, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 9, Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 21, and guided-missile cruiser USS Mobile Bay (CG 53) are deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet AOR to strengthen regional partnerships, sustain maritime security, and support combatant commander requirements for assets in the area.

Government Accountability who is commonly referred to as the state’s Open Government Ombudsman, said that there is an Open Records Act exemption from disclosure when it comes to applications for employment. “I’ve always viewed this exemption as optional, not mandatory,” Ford said. “The city could choose to waive it if they want to.” Ford went on to say that cities “usually release because they want public feedback on who they should appoint.” Mayor Patty Lent said last week, and again over the weekend, that the documents would be made available. In addition, City Council President Greg Wheeler said late Tuesday afternoon that the documents should, and would, be turned over. The city council is set to interview the candidates, with a list of seven predetermined questions drawn up by Wheeler and councilwoman Faye Flemister, at 5 p.m. Feb. 4 at the Norm Dicks Government Center. “The special meeting is open to the public but there will be no opportunities for input,” according to a press release by the city. The council is set to adjourn to a 20-minute executive session following the interviews and choose Runyon’s replacement. Runyon announced his resignation Jan. 2 due to a pending move out of the city council district he has represented since 2008.


injury in the last 24 hours, causing the hematoma. Detectives interviewed Reeser, as well as the girl’s mother and 15-year-old brother. According to court documents, Reeser at first told detectives he was unaware of any trauma the girl might have experienced. Later, however, Reeser told detectives he went to her room to change her diaper and pulled hard on her leg. He pulled her entirely off the bed, her head struck the floor and she stopped responding. Reeser told detectives he had not been initially truthful because he was fearful and scared, court documents said. He was then placed under arrest for first-degree Assault of a Child. Wilson said in the event of the girl’s death, the charges will likely change.

Chronicling an ‘Uneasy Road’ to equality Museum exhibit spotlights Kitsap County’s AfricanAmerican pioneers

hen Nina Hallett closes her eyes, she can almost picture Jane Ruley teaching reading and mathematics to a room of young learners in the old Sheridan Schoolhouse No. 22 in 1897. Ruley, who is thought to have been the first African-American teacher in Kitsap County, was the daughter of a slave. She was a classmate of Booker T. Washington at the Hampton Institute in Virginia. And from the history that Hallett has been able to uncover, she knows that

Ruley was born in the East and later came west and married Paul E. Ruley, a Kitsap County pioneer who was born in Germany and served on the Sheridan School Board. “The school was located on Mr. Ruley’s property and Jane was the first teacher in that school,” Hallett said. Her story and others

are part of an exhibit “Uneasy Road: From Slavery to Freedom” that opens at the museum on Feb. 1. The exhibit honors Black History Month and also commemorates the 150th signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. As a part of the opening, admission to the exhibit will be free from 5-8 p.m.


Feb. 1, part of the First Friday Art Walk in downtown Bremerton. The exhibit will document important dates in African-American history through 1863 and will cover racial laws from 1844 to 1959. While some of the focus will be on national history of that time period, there will be artifacts and photographs of local Kitsap County black history. Besides Jane Ruley, another important African-American to be featured is Nathaniel

Sargent. “He was born into slavery on July 4, 1863, and after emancipation was adopted by a white family,” Hallett said. “They moved to Oregon but because laws in Oregon forbade ‘Negroes,’ he [went alone] to Kitsap County where he earned a living in the logging trade.” Sargent was a teenager when he arrived in Kitsap County. According to U.S. Census documents of the day, a white woman named Sarah Smith adopted and cared for him beginning when he was 16. Sargent went on to be a handyman and builder in the Crosby area. He became very well liked in the local community and had quite a sense of humor, she said. As the story goes, a young white girl once took his hand, turned it over, and told him. “Mr. Sargent, you better go home and take a bath.” The girl had never seen a black man before. But Sargent just smiled at the young girl, understanding that he was something new to her. Later on, Sargent, who

had been well-educated in Illinois, was named justice of the peace at Seabeck. He died in 1954. In researching for the exhibit, Hallett found that Sargent was also an artist. “He mostly did oil paintings,” she said. “And as I was putting this exhibit together, I found the name of a neighbor of his and was able to track down that man’s widow, Jean Hintz of Seabeck. She fortunately had a piece of foil art that Mr. Sargent had made. And she is loaning it to us for the exhibit.” Another early black See HISTORY, Page 3

Serve the right wine with those wings M

ichael Haig is a longtime Seattle Seahawks fan, but the do-it-all quarterback of Whitestone Vineyard & Winery who playfully pairs his wines with junk food doesn’t plan to watch the Super Bowl. “I’ve scheduled myself to do a wine tasting because I have no interest,” he said. “Seattle should be the NFC team there, not San Francisco.” Haig, 36, still wants to make sure his fans attending Super Bowl parties don’t fumble a chance to class up traditional tailgate cuisine, so the Spokanearea winemaker offered a food-and-wine-pairing scouting report. “Not all great bottles are consumed by candle-


Continued from page 2 resident of the county was John Garrison. “From the 1857 Census, we found that he was one of the earliest blacks in Kitsap County,” Hallett said. “He was said to have been born in 1822 in Isle St. Domingo, which is now Haiti and the Dominican Republic. But some say he was actually born in Jamaica in 1818. He worked in the sawmill and married a woman who was American Indian. She had the name of Piapach but took the name Jane. Together they had 10 children.” Kitsap history documents say Jane lived to be 106 and was thought to be a niece of Chief Seattle. Confirming details can sometimes be challenging. “Especially with this exhibit. There is very little written down about the early African-Americans in this county,” Hallett said. She and others working on the exhibit have names of individuals, like Charles Brouinard, but not many details about him, other than he was born in Jamaica. “We have some great photos,” she said. “But there are no identifications to go with them. We know there were black laborers working to build the streets in Bremerton, because we have photos. But we have nothing else. We can’t put names

“When it comes to really greasy fried chicken, I like the Cabernet Franc ($27),” Haig said. “It has a nice tartness to it, and you know that little bit of grease between the skin and the meat? The Cab Franc will cleanse that off your palate really good.” Fish sticks won’t get paired with white wine, which Haig doesn’t care for. “You’ve almost got to go with the Merlot, especially if you fry the fish with bread crumbs,” Haig said. “The Merlot ($27) is a bit more fruity, and it doesn’t matter if you dip the fish sticks in tartar sauce or ketchup. You’ll still be fine with the Merlot.” Whitestone also will be pairing Doritos and Fritos with Pieces of Red

light and white china in a romantic setting with the one you love,” Haig said. “I’d bet most wine is consumed in sweatpants with the kids yelling and you ... trying to get the kids settled and their lunches for the next day made.” So the Whitestone Wine & Junk Food Tasting is Feb. 2 at Haig’s tasting room near the historic Davenport Hotel in Spokane. “We’re going to the store’s frozen-food section and getting everything that can be deep fried,” Haig said. “Imagine fried chicken and fish sticks.”

to faces. And there are some questions about the dates.” And then there’s Charles Austin. “We know he began life as a slave in South Carolina,” she said. “He was an African-American pioneer. He’s pictured as a ‘bootblack,’ shining shoes in Bremerton. But we know little else, other than he worked in the Bon Ton barber shop and then had a corner stand of his own.” Hallett, a museum volunteer since 1995, said the museum has had other exhibits to honor Black History Month, but they were more “current day” and easier to document. She is hoping that the exhibit will spark interest and more information will surface about early black settlers in the county. “This one has been hard because we have precious little,” she said. “We

have very few photos and artifacts and not much of the early black history in writing.” Black History Month has its beginning in 1926 when historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History named the second week of February as “Negro History Week.” The week was chosen because it marked the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. In 1976, the federal government proclaimed the entire month of February as Black History Month. It has been celebrated annually since then. The Kitsap History Museum is located at 280 Fourth St., Bremerton. Call (360) 479-6226 for more information. The exhibit runs through March 30.

($21), a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot — all from his family’s vineyard. “When you are with the boys and playing poker or watching the game and enjoying some nice junk food like summer sausage, cheese and chips, all your friends may be drinking beer,” Haig said. “Instead, you put red wine in a coffee mug. “Now if you are drinking the St. Vincent, our high-end blend ($35), make sure you stick your pinkie finger out while drinking from the coffee cup — just to class it up a bit,” Haig quipped. Onion rings? “That’s one question everyone seems to be asking, but I can’t give away everything before

the party,” Haig chuckled. “People will have to be here or get it off our Twitter account that afternoon.” Make no mistake, Haig crafts serious wines at his 2,000-case facility. They are neither clumsy nor smothered by oak, allowing for red fruit flavors such as cassis, Marionberry, Montmorency cherry and Craisins. His grapes once went to Walla Walla wineries Canoe Ridge Vineyards, L’Ecole No. 41 and Walla Walla Vintners. Last year marked the 20th anniversary of the vineyard planted with the help of Washington State University. Decades before, though, grapevines thrived nearby until they were flooded by the

construction of Grand Coulee Dam about 30 miles downstream. The winery is named for nearby Whitestone Rock — the iconic natural feature of the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area — and the family-owned operation keeps Haig on the run. He splits his time between the Spokane tasting room, the 16-acre vineyard overlooking the Columbia River, the winery in the tiny Palouse town of Wilbur and a quaint tasting room across the street from the winery.
