No buyer yet, but Kitsap Mall is for sale The place local people often go to shop is, itself, looking to be purchased

By Leslie Kelly

Silverdale’s Kitsap Mall is for sale, it was announced recently by Real Estate Alert, an industry publication. But the buyer will probably be a large investment company and there’s nothing to indicate the mall is in any financial hardship. That’s the message from area commercial real estate experts who say the sale should not be looked at as a sign of a bad economy. “From time to time, a company will sell properties if they’re getting out of the retail market and opting to go into more office or multi-family properties instead,” said Blake Stedman, of Coast Real Estate Services in Everett. “That’s not uncommon. Or they could just be re-directing their equity elsewhere.” The Macerich partnership, headquartered in Santa Monica, Calif., listed the Kitsap Mall for sale in December along with Kitsap Place, an 87,000 square-foot community shop-

ping center, the Kitsap North Point, four free-standing retail buildings, and the 442,000 square-foot Cascade Mall in Burlington. Macerich, a real estate investment trust with Canadian investors, has owned the Kitsap Mall since 1999. According to real estate investments reports, the mall includes 715,000 square feet of retail space, is currently 97 percent leased and is valued at $79 million. Mall ownership does not include Sears and Kohl’s stores. Karen Maurer, spokeswoman for the Macerich partnership, would not comment on the mall being for sale or if there were any interested buyers. Local managers at the mall referred calls to the Macerich headquarters saying “everything’s coming out of Santa Monica.” Stedman said the most likely reason that Macerich is selling is changing investment goals. Indeed, Macerich’s 2011 annual report stated the company was changing philosophies from investing in malls with more common tenants to malls with higher end tenants. The Kitsap Mall was opened in 1985 in an area that was formerly a chicken farm. It was built by Winmar Co., which was the real estate arm of Safeco, a Seattle-based financial services com-

In the business of banking blood Teachers upset about By WES MORROW

Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood. More than 44,000 blood donations are needed every day to maintain the needed supply, according to the American Red Cross. Here in western Washington, the weight of gathering those donations falls squarely on the shoulders of Puget Sound Blood Center. The Blood Center has 11 donation centers in Western Washington, but only one on the west side of the Puget Sound. Puget Sound Blood Center’s Silverdale location stands alone on this side of the water, serving a geographic region as far reaching as Forks and Neah Bay. Elaine Raymond, the Silverdale center’s supervisor, happily accepts this geographic challenge. “We have a lot of blood donors up

in the Sequim, Port Angeles area as well,” Raymond said. “It’s an amazing operation.” The Silverdale location opened in 1998. Before that, Puget Sound Blood Center would send over mobile units on the ferry to service the west Sound. In order to serve such a large area, Raymond’s team makes use of two of its own mobile units. At least one, and often both, of these mobile units is out collecting donations nearly every day. One of the units is a bloodmobile, a 40-foot bus that can be set up in any level parking lot. The other mobile unit coordinates with groups who want to host a blood drive, bringing all the necessary See BLOOD, A13

Teachers in Central Kitsap are putting pressure on the district administration to pull the plug on a possible new high school program. The program, called the National Math and Science Initiative, would be administered in the form of a grant to the Central Kitsap School District if it goes forward. Its goal is to increase the number of students participating in and passing Advanced Placement classes in English, Math and Science. NMSI would provide additional training and resources for teachers in these AP subjects, as well as additional resources for students, such

as one-on-one tutoring and open weekend study sessions. Along with these resources and development programs, NMSI would provide students, teachers and administrators with a financial incentive based on student success — what teachers have dubbed “merit pay.” Students would have either half or all of their test expenses ($87 per test) covered and would earn $100 for passing an AP test in one of the select subjects. Teachers could earn $1,000 for reaching their class goal and $100 for each individual student who passes the AP test. School administrators would See MERIT, A13

Silverdale boy achieves Eagle Scout rank By WES MORROW

Michael Newman credits the Boy Scouts with helping shape who he is today. The 17-year-old junior at Olympic High School was recently accepted into the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. “At first I didn’t think I would get it because I was just so nervous,” Michael said. Michael joined the Scouts 10 years ago at the age of seven as a tiger Cub Scout. When he got older he joined the Silverdale Boy Scout Troop 1539. During his time as a Boy Scout, Michael achieved a number of accomplishments, earning 47 merit badges and spending more than 130

nights camping with his troop. He hiked multiple 50-mile treks and climbed eight mountains, including Mt. Adams. He is also a member of the Order of the Arrow, a brotherhood for dedicated Scouts. “Just the feeling of being an Eagle Scout is, in my opinion, the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced,” Michael said. “All the hard work and dedication has paid off.” As an Eagle Scout, Michael continues to be active in his troop. He acts as a junior assistant Scout Master, helping and mentoring the younger scouts. “A lot of the young scouts when they join, they don’t enjoy it initially because they don’t know anybody in the troop,” Michael said. “Once

you meet people in the troop and once you start going on campouts it’s more worthwhile.” For his Eagle project Michael had the opportunity to revisit a place from his past. He replaced the back deck and stairs at the Crystal Grange Community Center in Brownsville, where his old Cub Scout Troop 4539 meets. Michael’s mother, Julie Newman, said she looks back on her son’s time in the Boy Scouts as beneficial not only for Michael but for her as a parent. “It was very fun, I have to say. It’s not just dropping your child off at a meeting,” Julie said. “For your Scout to be successful, it really does matter, I think, when a parent is involved. It shows them that not

only are they interested but you’re interested for them as well.” Beyond Boy Scouts, Michael attends running start at Olympic College, plays piano and sings in Olympic High School’s jazz choir. He isn’t sure what he wants to do after graduation, maybe join the military or transfer to a four-year university, he said. No matter what he chooses to do in the future, Michael will have a strong background of work and a large brotherhood of supporters as an Eagle Scout. “The Boy Scouts of America is a great organization, and it pretty much shaped my character, my being,” Michael said. “If it wasn’t for the Boy Scouts I wouldn’t be the person, the man I am today.”

No one hurt in knife crisis

A domestic crisis situation involving a 22 yearold East Bremerton man was resolved without serious consequence this past Thursday, Feb. 14. Kitsap County Sheriff ’s patrol deputies were dispatched at 2:17 p.m. to a residence in the 8000 block of Meyerwood Lane NE for a report of an out-of-control man who was armed with a knife. Initial reports stated that the man was making threats to kill any responding law enforcement officers or himself. A patrol sergeant from Bremerton Police Department also responded to assist. Arriving deputies made initial contact with the man, from a distance, and maintained a verbal dialogue with him during the encounter. The subject paced around on the residence’s front deck holding a large “Bowie”-type knife in his hand and acting highly agitated. His physical actions and verbal rants and threats were aggressive towards those on scene. Additional responding patrol units contacted persons inside the residence; two family members and a guest were escorted away from the house to a position of safety. Family members were able to provide deputies with information concerning the subject, indicating to officers that the man was suffering from a medical and mental health crisis situation. Several times the man attempted to close the distance between himself and deputies while making threats to kill. He repeatedly refused to release the knife. The man eventually backed himself into a carport. After an extended period of time, with continued dialogue, the man set the knife down on top of a vehicle, but continued with his verbal tirade and demonstration of physical agitation. He also remained within a close distance to the knife. The man was eventually taken into custody after being shot with a less-thanlethal baton round. Custody of the man was transferred to medics from Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue for initial evaluation. He was subsequently transported to Harrison Medical Center. The man was not booked into jail and no injuries were sustained during the course of this incident. |

The devil is in the details


Voters in the proposed city of Silverdale made it clear last week. They don’t see a need to become a city. In an overwhelming majority — more than 70 percent — voters said the current way they are governed by Kitsap County is working just fine for them. In every single voter precinct affected, a majority voted against the incorporation measure, ranging from 62 to 86 percent. In doing so, voters said they are satisfied with the services they are getting from the county. Many individuals who spoke out against the measure said they saw no need for a city and feared that incorporation would lead to higher taxes. That gives credence to the argument that those who were behind the incorporation effort failed to get their message across. Even though they offered educational forums, those who attended walked away feeling they didn’t make their case. Efforts by Citizens United for Silverdale are to be commended. The group worked hard to gather signatures and put the issue before voters. The group and the Silverdale Chamber of Commerce and the Central Kitsap Community Council offered forums where leaders from cities that had incorporated spoke. But their message got lost in the delivery. Voters wanted to know what the benefits would be if incorporation passed. They wanted to see what a new city government would look like. They wanted to know what would be gained by keeping sales tax revenue here. They wanted more specifics. It will be at least four years before incorporation is back on the ballot in Silverdale. Some supporters say they’re through for now. Others say they intend on getting the measure back before voters in the near future. Either way, next time around, supporters would be wise to start at the ground level and involve those whom they didn’t convince this time around. Ask them to be a part of the process. Get their take on which areas should be part of the city and which areas would be better left in the county. Work with county officials to make sure there’s a plan for keeping services at the same level for areas that will remain in the county. Make sure the numbers add up and that the loss of tax revenue at the county level is dealt with. And show voters that those living in the new city will get more bang for their buck. Silverdale becoming a city is something that most likely will happen in the future. But it won’t happen until residents are convinced that it’s in their best interest.

Incorporation after thoughts


Election night comments by Citizens United for Silverdale showed that they just don’t get it. They need to realize that they insulted the integrity of this community by their tactics: force feeding incorporation to them; inviting only certain citizens to an early community meeting and opting out others seen as troublesome to their cause; ignoring the recommendation of the Boundary Review Board and running a separate $35,000 election at taxpayer expense; and creating an attitude of incorporation as a “done deal.” Our grassroots “NO” campaign seemed to give voice to what the citizens were thinking and feeling, they connected to it, and the rest is history. Incorporation has to come out of a real need and the desire of the community, not the selfserving needs of a few people. Thanks to the CK Reporter for trying to present both sides of this incorporation issue. Karen Best Silverdale |

Well-deserved thanks Dr. James Williams at Advanced Wellness and Rehabilitation in Silverdale is most compassionate, considerate and has an enormous amount of empathy for the care of his patients. He has a lot of concern about their well being. Because I’ve been his patient, he has treated my puppy that has a joint condition in one of his legs. He treats my puppy for free and has prevented my puppy, Snowball, from having a very expensive surgery that I can’t afford. I am so grateful to him for his care not only for me but my puppy, which is one of the most important things in my life. He is so kind and thoughtful and that little appreciation is welldeserved.

High quality care for persons completing their life journey has always been a top priority for Hospice of Kitsap County, but is now even more important in light of the State of the Union address last week by President Barack Obama. In his speech, he challenged healthcare providers to focus on providing high quality care. “We’ll bring down costs by changing the way our government pays for Medicare because our medical bills should not be based on the number of tests ordered or days spent in the hospital. They should be based on the quality of care that our seniors receive,” the president said. Hospice of Kitsap County recently signed on as a Quality Partner with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHCPO’s) national performance improvement program ‘Quality Partners’. This program is a resource to help hospice assess, monitor and improve the quality of care provided. In anticipation for new

Local author to read at Barnes & Noble

Local author Elsa Watson will read from her new novel “The Love Dog” at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Barnes & Noble in Silverdale. Watson also is the author of the books, “Dog Days” and “Maid Marian.” Watson’s previous novel “Dog Days” was named one of Publishers Weekly’s five best romance novels of 2012. It received a starred review from Publishers Weekly and four stars from the Romantic Times Book Reviews. “The Love Dog” is the story of Samantha Novak, a paralegal who was recently fired from her job. When Telltale, a Hollywood tabloid, asks her to write an expose on the reality television dating show, The Love Dog, Samantha is thrilled. She’s always dreamed of being a writer, and the fat paycheck won’t hurt. After being recently left at the altar, she’s not too keen on love either. Hired as the canine star’s handler, Samantha finds that digging up dirt on set is harder then she thought. Apollo, the show’s star, is a sweet golden retriever who takes his job as the “love dog” very seriously. He only wants to help couples fall in love and make everyone on set happy. Mason Hall, the show’s producer and leading man, is down to earth, charming, and... very attractive. If Samantha doesn’t reveal to the world that the reality show isn’t exactly “real,” her new career will be over before it starts. But when she falls in love with Apollo and Mason, will she still have the heart to expose The Love Dog’s dirty secrets? Watson notes that “The Love Dog” is very near and dear to her heart. “I modeled Apollo after our rescue dog Lucky,” she said. “Lucky is a very sensitive, caring soul who feels things deeply ­— just like Apollo. Of course, being dogs, they also share a love of cheese crackers and peanut butter.” Local New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs said this about “Dog Days:” “I was lucky enough to be an early reader of this book. It’s exactly the kind of novel I can’t wait to share with fellow readers.”

Caring volunteer gives time to shelter cats By Leslie Kelly LKELLY@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

Not hardly a Wednesday goes by that Jeff Berger isn’t snuggling with a cat at the Kitsap Human Society. It might be his love for animals. Or it might just be an addiction. “Once you get loving cats in your system, it never goes away,” Berger said. And that’s part of what brings him to the Kitsap Humane Society animal shelter in Silverdale each week. The other part is his love for people. Berger isn’t sure whether it’s the cats or the other volunteers and staff that keep him coming back. He’s been a volunteer with the animal shelter since 1991 when he responded to an advertisement in a local newspaper. “They were looking for someone to play Santa Claus for the shelter’s Posing with Pets event during the holiday season,” he said. “I’d played Santa before with humans and enjoyed that. So I volunteered.” For the past 21 years he’s been the humane society’s

Jeff Berger finds direct work with the animals rewarding. Santa. He’s also played Santa for the Humane Society of Mason County. He’s held cats and dogs, posed with llamas, pot belly pigs, ferrets and even a snake. But his volunteer work hasn’t stopped there. He’s helped with other events like the annual auction, Animal Crackers, and the Pet’s Walk to raise funds for the shelter. He now serves on an advisory committee that helps with community concerns about the shelter. And for a time, he took pets to the professional photographer who took their

pictures to advertise them for adoption. It was about two years ago when the shelter was finishing its cattery that someone asked him to come in on Wednesdays and help care for the cats. “Now that I’ve been doing it for a couple of years, I wish I’d started years ago,” he said. “I love the direct work with the animals. There’s much to be said for it. When I’m not here I really miss it.” A cat-owner since he met and married his wife, Ruth, he enjoys helping to socialize

the cats. Holding them and petting them and learning what each cat will tolerate is part of his work. And sometimes, he admits, he gets too close to them. “There was a very special cat, Hera,” he said. “She was a short-haired tortie and rather portly. She was about 12 or 13 years old and had been here at the shelter for almost a year. When she finally got adopted, I was glad, but I was sad, too, that I wouldn’t see her again. That’s the hard part of all of this.” Berger is a native of the East Coast but came west in his early 20s with his brother and four friends. They caravanned in three cars arriving in Seattle in 1974. They came here because one of them had been stationed at Fort Lewis and they all decided they wanted to live near the mountains and somewhere “where there wasn’t 162 inches of snow every winter,” he said. For a time they shared a one-bedroom apartment on Capitol Hill. Eventually, Berger began working for the Washington State Liquor Control Board as a store employee, a store man-

ager and then a district manager. He and his wife moved to the Kitsap Peninsula in 1990. He retired eight years ago. Now he splits his volunteer work between animals and humans, he said. “My other volunteer work is driving people to their cancer treatment appointments for the American Cancer Society,” he said. He is a musician and plays guitar at local farmer’s markets. And he writes a blog about his other hobby — wine. “I spent so much time in the liquor business that I began to learn about wine,” he said. “I write about wines that are exclusively sold in grocery outlets. And I have my own wine cellar.” When he misses a week at the shelter, he can feel it, he said. “I will come in and there will be a bunch of new cats, and some of my old friends will be gone,” he said. “Of course, that’s what we want to happen — to have all the cats get good permanent homes. But you can’t help but miss the cats that have left.”

At home he has a cat, Marmalade, a rather big orange tabby. “He found us when he was about a year old,” Berger said. “Now he’s about 13.” Other cats have found Berger from time-to-time, too, including a feral cat he named Buddy. He and his wife also had a dog, and he said his wife still wants to have a pug at some point in time. As for his volunteering, Berger said he finds it gratifying. “With all I’ve read, I understand that cats live in the moment,” he said. “But I like to think that the cats appreciate me making them more comfortable, playing with them and loving them. “And just being here gives me a sense of belonging. I love the staff and the other volunteers. They’re just great people.” If you know of an interesting person in our community who would make a great story, email us at

She’s making memories picture perfect By Leslie Kelly

It’s taken her several wrong roads and a couple of bad turns, but Victoria Quinn has finally found her place. “I’ve always had a passion for photography,” Quinn said. “But, at times, life just got in the way of me doing what I really wanted to do.” Quinn, a mother and local businesswoman, is owner of Victoria’s Photography and Photo Dynamics in Silverdale. Together with her husband, David, she operates a full-service photography laboratory and acts as a portrait photographer. “Right now, I’m putting about 100 slides onto CDs to be used as a photo tribute during a funeral,” she said. “We do a lot of orders that people can’t find anywhere else to get them done. We can make a print from just about anything.” Quinn’s lab skills were something she learned years ago when she took classes at Clover Park Technical College near Tacoma. But that was something that happened almost by accident. “I wanted to get into photography school,” she said. “But all those classes were full, so I decided to take a lab class instead.” Her route to getting there wasn’t an easy one, either. From the time she was very young, Quinn knew she liked photography. She got her first

camera from her mother when she was 10 years old. “It was a little Instamatic 110 camera that took (3-inch) square photos,” she said. “I started paying attention to things and taking lots of photos and they turned out good.” It would be six more years before she got her first 35 mm camera. But at age 16, she took it everywhere. “I was the annoying one who went on school trips and took the camera,” she said. “I took pictures of everyone. My friends — I know they got tired of me and my camera.” After high school, Quinn accepted a scholarship to aeronautic school in Prescott, Ariz. She had enlisted in the Air Force and was sent to Embry Riddle to study aeronautics. Her love of photography took a back seat. After a year, however, she left the school to follow her heart in a relationship that didn’t work out and she found herself back at home in Tacoma wondering what was next for her. That’s when she signed up for photo lab school. “It’s really where I learned everything I know about color and about how to process film,” she said. “I loved working in the darkroom.” Her first color assignment was to print a picture of a woman in a purple shirt. “I loved that shirt,” she said. “So I made it really, really violet. When my instructor

saw it she said, ‘Look at her skin tones.’ Right then, I got it. I understood how important color balance is.” Quinn went on to work in photo labs in Renton and Seattle. She met and married her husband and they moved to the Kitsap Peninsula. They bought property in Kingston and lived in Bremerton while their house was being built. Quinn worked for a photo lab in Poulsbo and her husband worked a government contract as a computer electronics specialist. With three kids at home, Quinn decided to be at home with her children and began thinking more and more about becoming a photographer. She got her business license and began shooting weddings and senior portraits. In 1982, she and her husband bought Photo Dynamics in Silverdale. The business grew and at one point they had 11 employees. Then came the age of digital photography, and the business took a tumble. “By 2006, the business dropped remarkably,” she said. “We had bought a lot of equipment and we had converted to computer scanners and we kept up with the digital world. But as home scanners got better, people just did their own.” At the same time her husband lost his contract job and while his computer knowledge and her photography

But, Quinn said she never lost sight of her passion for photography. In 2011, she began working with a business coach, looking for ways to bring her business back. Last April, she found a location she could afford and reopen their lab and portrait studio. “We uncovered the win-

dows and turned on the ‘Open’ sign,” she said. Since then, business has picked up. Most of their business is from the photo lab work, but her studio work is growing. Typical customers are people who find undeveloped film that needs processing, or people with negatives that they want converted to CDs. They also color-correct prints that have been made elsewhere. Now that she has re-established her business, Quinn

is looking to grow her portrait work. She specializes in doing portraits for students who are graduating from high school. “I like to try to capture their specialness,” she said. “Often times we’ll use a musical instrument or a basketball in the picture to show who they are.” She likes shooting weddings and she does family portraits, too. She will shoot in the studio, at outdoor locations, or at customers’ homes. Right now her focus is on getting to the point where she is profitable. She is still paying off debts from her previous bankruptcy. “Some days it’s just hard to get up,” she said. “I’ve had a lot of disappointments. But I do feel optimistic about the future. I like to hide behind my camera. It’s my ‘box.’ But I’m working on getting outside my box.” In fact, just to get her name known, she recently offered to photograph local Eagle Scouts at no cost. “It’s a way of giving back,” she said. “I’ve had some very good people help me in my times of need and I want to acknowledge that by helping others.” Her business is located at 9960 Silverdale Way NW # 12.

Port Townsend man wants to “Solarize Kitsap” By WES MORROW

Andy Cochrane left Kitsap County in the late 1980s after graduating from Port Townsend High School. He returned 15 years later with a vague idea

and an aspiration. “At the time there was a lot of new housing being built,” Cochrane said. “I wanted to have a positive influence on the type of housing that was being built.” Cochrane started the

company Power Trip Energy in 2003 with that still ambiguous goal in mind. Solar energy had always been an attraction of his, Cochrane admitted, but he’d never had the ability or means to utilize it himself. At first, Cochrane orga-

nized solar home tours and other events to educate home-owners on the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas about the possibility of using solar energy. Power Trip Energy made its biggest step in 2004, when Cochrane teamed up with his old high-school friend, Steve Carr, who had become an electrician. With Carr on board, the company took on a new direction — Cochrane and Carr became electrical contractors, installing solar systems for clients around the west sound.

and cloud cover, might seem absurd, but Cochrane has spent years dispelling this common misconception. According to Cochrane, the Pacific Northwest gets 70 percent as much sun as southern California, and in the summer we actually get more thanks to our longer days. “Germany is the number one solar country per capita in the world, and we get more sun than Germany,” Cochrane said. “If the Germans believe that it is a good idea and they get less sun than we do then it’s a good idea here.” Now, almost precisely 10 years after the company’s creation, Cochrane and Carr are pushing to bring solar energy to as many people as possible through a program called Solarize Kitsap. Power Trip said the goal of Solarize Kitsap is to bring affordable solar energy installation to more people through a group purchasing model that helps bring down the cost to each individual.

Youngsters hold court By WES MORROW

In Washington state, juvenile offenders don’t have the right to a trial by a jury of their peers. Even if they did have the right to a jury trial, the middle-aged men and women constituting that jury would hardly be a 16 year old’s peers. Juvenile offenses are typically ruled over by a judge, but some adolescents in Kitsap County are offered a rare opportunity, a trial by a jury of their fellow teenagers. One evening a month, high-school and junior-high students from around Kitsap County gather at the juvenile court house in Port Orchard to experience the different roles of the judicial system. The system is known as youth court. Kitsap County Youth Court is a diversion program for first time juvenile offenders, acting as a substitute for the regular sentencing process. Juvenile probation officer Pam Martin decides which cases would work well in youth court and then approaches adolescent offenders about the opportunity. The scope of youth court is limited to misdemeanors like possessing alcohol or drugs, and all defendants are given the option to go through a regular court appearance. As a diversion program, youth court juries do not make convictions. Defendants must admit guilt prior to appearing in youth court. All the jury decides is what sort of punishment the defendant will receive. The jury cannot send anyone to jail. There are limits for each category of crime handled in youth court. The most common forms of punishment handed down in the youth court program are community service, essays and oral or written apologies. “They’re not convictions,” said Todd Dowell. “They’re basically contracts … between the court and the defendant.” Dowell is a senior deputy prosecutor for Kitsap County’s juvenile division. He spends his work days in the same courtroom occupied once a month by youth court. He volunteers as an advocate for the students acting as prosecuting attorneys. Student volunteers in the youth court program can serve a number of different roles. First time volunteers usually sit on the jury, while

more veteran students can act as prosecuting and defending attorneys, bailiff, clerk and finally, judge. Kayla Rivera-Hoskinson, a sophomore at Olympic High School, acted as judge for the second case last week. She said she was drawn to youth court in part because she wants to be a lawyer. Youth court gives her a unique chance to see things from the inside, RiveraHoskinson said: “to experience the cases, to be able to talk to the people who are on trial, to be able to see how they feel.” Mark Randolph, a juvenile public defender, occasionally volunteers as an advocate for the youth court defense counselors. He often finds himself in the courtroom across the aisle from prosecutor Dowell, both in the diversion program and in traditional court. Randolph said he is constantly learning from the students who volunteer at youth court. After working as a juvenile public defender for 15 years, he can usually tell how a judge will respond to certain cases. But there are times, he said, where the youth court jurors surprise him with their perspective.

“I’ve done thousands of cases out here, and I’ve got a pretty good idea how a judge might respond to a particular case, but that doesn’t mean that’s how those kids are going to respond,” Randolph said. “They pick up on things I don’t pick up on.” Randolph said he feels youth court is a good way for students to experience the criminal justice system from an outside perspective, since most kids don’t ever really see what goes on in the courtroom unless they commit an offense. Acting as a defense attorney for troubled youth, Randolph said working with the kids in youth court is a welcome change of pace. “It is kind of refreshing to see the kids who are trying hard and who will take the time out on a Wednesday night to come out to the court house for a couple hours.” All students in Kitsap County are welcome to join the youth court program in Port Orchard, Martin said. Students from surrounding counties that don’t have youth court programs are also welcome.

The program takes advantage of a state sales tax exemption that will be expiring July 1. Right now, the cost of solar installation is completely exempt from the 8.6 percent sales tax. Cochrane said they want to let as many people know about the exemption before it goes away this summer. “We’re kind of trying to get the word out, get as many people lined up to take advantage of that before the deadline,” Cochrane said. To help spread the word, Power Trip is going around the county and offering weekend seminars to get information to people who want to learn more. The first event was held in Silverdale on Jan. 19. Additional events are being held in Kitsap communities through April 13. Despite the expiring sales tax exemption, solar energy continues to become more and more affordable through government subsidies, technological advancement and increased production volume. “We’ve seen price decreases of 30, 40 percent in the last few years,” Cochrane said.

The federal government offers a 30 percent income tax credit on the cost of the solar system. Perhaps the biggest financial benefit, however, comes from net metering and state production incentives. Through net metering,

Workshops are scheduled for the following Saturdays: March 2, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., at the Poulsbo Library March 23, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., at the Baymont Inn & Suites (Bremerton) April 13, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., at the Silverdale Community Center. the utilities department monitors the energy produced by a client’s solar array. That client then receives credit from their utilities provider for whatever their array produces. So if a family’s solar array produces twice the energy they need in August (which Cochrane said is common), they’ll receive credit they can use in winter when their solar array isn’t producing as much energy. The production incentives program is a voluntary state program for utilities companies that provides a yearly credit to customers

for every kWh of electricity produced. The base incentive is 15 cents per kWh, but if the customer’s solar array is manufactured in Washington, the rate jumps dramatically to 54 cents per kWh. To give an idea for comparison, utilities customers pay around 10 cents for kWh for electricity in Western Washington. The average Power Trip solar array produces around 1,000 kWh a year per kW of installed hardware, so a 5 kW system would produce around 5,000 kWh per year. That means the owner of that solar array would receive $750 at the base rate of 15 cents per kWh from the production incentive alone. If that same owner were using hardware manufactured in Washington state the incentive would be $2,700 per year, on top of utility credits. The cost-savings of solar energy is one of the major motivating factors for potential owners, which, according to Cochrane is one of the reasons they’re trying so hard to tell people about the sales tax exemption before it’s too late. To qualify for the exemption, clients must have their solar arrays installed before July 1. That’s why Power

Trip has an April 30 deadline for customers hoping enroll in the Solarize Kitsap program. Of course, Power Trip will continue offering its services after April 30, but for anyone hoping to take advantage of the Solarize Kitsap program or the sales tax exemption the deadline is coming up quickly. Solar energy still isn’t cheap to install, but through the varied government subsidies and credits, low-interest loans and the returns on energy of the solar arrays themselves, more and more people are able to afford and utilize this form of renewable energy. Cochrane said his grandfather became an electrician around the turn of the 20th century, at a time when it was a relatively new career. Most households still used gas lamps for light. “I imagined him having to convince people that putting electricity in their house was a good thing,” Cochrane said. “And now I have to go out and convince people to put solar panels on their roof.” Cochrane said he hopes and believes that the solar installer, just like the electrician or the plumber, will be just another trade needed every time a new house is built.

pany. It wasn’t until 14 years later that Macerich purchased Kitsap Mall for $70 million, according to county records. Kitsap Place is across from the mall and has a value of $10 million. Anchor tenants there are T.J. Maxx, Michael’s and Dollar Tree. That center is 51 percent occupied. North Point at Kitsap is adjacent to the mall and is valued at $7.7 million. Tenants include La-Z-Boy,


qualify for $3,000 if the entire school meets its goal, and the school itself would qualify for $5,000 and $25 for every student enrolled in one of the three AP subjects. It’s these incentives that have caused the uproar among teachers. Scott Speck, an AP teacher at Central Kitsap High School, is firmly against NMSI. “There is a resentment felt on the part of the staff towards this process,” he said. Speck drafted a letter to the school board and around 60 other Central Kitsap teachers signed it, expressing a number of complaints toward the NMSI grant. “We think it’s a morally corrupt process to start giving kids money,” Speck said. While NMSI could be implemented at Olympic High School and Klahowya, Central Kitsap would actually not be eligible to participate in the grant program. “When we first started exploring it, all the schools were eligible (based on their number of students in military families),” said Franklyn MacKenzie, the district’s director of secondary teaching and learning. After applying, MacKenzie said, the district found out Central Kitsap High School wouldn’t be eligible because it already had so many students passing AP tests and the cost would be too great to the grant donors. However, MacKenzie said, they didn’t want to fully eliminate CK from the discussion, so they approached NMSI with the hope that CK could benefit from the resources that would already be brought in for Olympic and Klahowya. Representatives from NMSI visited with staff at Klahowya Wednesday, observing AP classes and discussing the school’s future plans.

f.y.e. and Party City. Cascade Mall in Burlington, is valued at $46.8 million and has an 81 percent leased rate. Jones Lang LaSalle is the listing agent for the Kitsap Mall. A spokesman for the company in Seattle would not say whether there were any interested buyers. Commercial real estate salesman Merv Killoran, with Reid Real Estate, said any potential buyer would probably be from a metropolitan area and would be a large insurance company or an investment group. He

said the sale could be happening simply because the current owner is downsizing its holdings. The mall being for sale isn’t a negative for the commercial real estate market in the area, he added. “Having it for sale doesn’t affect our commercial real estate market locally,” Killoran said. “Right now the Silverdale market is pretty competitive. There’s not a lot of space our there for sale.” Local real estate brokers estimate that retail vacancy rates in the core Silverdale

area are at 10 percent. Stedman said he wasn’t seeing more shopping malls for sale now than at any other time recently. “There are always malls for sale, and no more so now than at any other time,” he said. For some merchants in the Kitsap Mall, it came as a surprise to them that the mall was for sale. “The first I heard about it was when a customer told me today,” said Zach Murr, a salesman at Whistle Workwear. “I really don’t think it will affect us. Business is good for us.”

Superintendent Greg Lynch stressed that NMSI is still in an exploratory phase to see if the program would be beneficial. He said the choice to implement NMSI will be made separately by staff at each school. Despite the district’s attempts to calm the fears of some of its teachers, NMSI will likely continue to face opposition. Central Kitsap Education Association — the teacher’s union — and the teachers who stand with Speck said they felt NMSI created inequity within the district. Speck, who teaches social studies, said in his letter to the school board, “The NMSI grant only funds the Advanced Placement academic subjects of Math, Science and English. This is an explicit expression of the lesser value of the nontargeted NMSI Advanced Placement classes.” CKEA President Kirsten Nicholson said she felt the grant creates inequity “by rewarding some and not others.” The teacher’s union is officially on record against NMSI with a Feb. 13 vote of its school representatives. “CKEA insists that the CKSD administration and CKSD school board abandon the NMSI Grant Process,” the union said in a written statement. While the vote was overwhelming, Nicholson said, a handful of school representatives did not vote against NMSI. Nicholson also said that Klahowya, at least, is open to the idea of the NMSI grant. While opposition from Olympic and Klahowya was not as strong as at Central Kitsap, Speck wished to dispel any idea that Central Kitsap teachers just felt they had been left out. “The CK staff is not just disapproving of the NMSI grant because we are cut out of it,” he said. MacKenzie hoped to address concerns of ineq-

uity by working with NMSI regarding the monetary incentives. The district worked with NMSI to offer different options for teacher and administrator incentives. MacKenzie said if NMSI is implemented and a teacher qualified for an incentive she could choose to not apply for the incentive, or could even donate the entire incentive to a non-NMSI program. On top of this, NMSI allows participating schools the opportunity to help nonNMSI subjects by shifting district-provided money to those areas, according to MacKenzie. Dale Fleury, the NMSI representative sent to Klahowya, said NMSI has not seen a decline in nonNMSI subject participation. In fact, he said, they’ve seen

the opposite — that students take more AP classes across the board, including courses such as social studies and languages. Nicholson admitted that, despite the monetary incentives, she did not feel everything about NMSI is bad. In fact, without the merit pay, much of the program she considered positive. However, Nicholson said, the merit pay aspect is so problematic it outweighs the positives. Nicholson, Speck and the teacher’s union continue to oppose the possibility of implementing NMSI in Central Kitsap School District. “It’s a discriminatory practice that we’d rather not let through the front door,” Speck said, “but our district leadership seems to think it’s a good idea.”

supplies to a site like a church or school. “Some of these places we’ve been going to for 20 years,” Raymond said. However, she added, “We’re always looking for new places.” These two units rove up and down both peninsulas, serving donors all over the region. Sometimes, a mobile unit will take a multi-day trip, stopping for a blood drive in places like Port Angeles before heading over to Neah Bay or Forks. Puget Sound Blood Center has one processing lab, located in Renton, where the blood from every one of its centers is transported each day. Every night Silverdale ships that day’s donations across the Sound to the Renton lab. But when the bloodmobile is serving donors in Neah Bay, that becomes a bit more difficult, so the Blood Center takes a more direct approach. It partners with pilots who volunteer their time an expertise to fly the blood across the Sound. Once the blood arrives at the Renton lab, it undergoes 16 different tests for bloodborne diseases and pathogens. By the next day, the blood that flew in from Forks or Neah Bay or Port Angeles will be ready for distribution. The blood will be shipped to one of the 70 northwest hospitals Puget Sound Blood

Center works with, such as Harrison Medical Center in Kitsap County. David Larsen, Puget Sound Blood Center’s communications director, said they need to collect around 900 units a day throughout western Washington to maintain their supply. “We have quite a few very dedicated donors who come in just like clockwork,” Raymond said. Roger Eagan is one such donor. Eagan comes into the Silverdale center at least once a week. He can only donate whole blood every 56 days, but on the other days he volunteers. He acts as a receptionist of sorts, helping people get registered to donate. “This is such a little thing for me to do and such an important thing for someone who’s going to use this blood,” Eagan said, while he waited patiently for a pint of his blood to make its way out of him. Donors can schedule an appointment at the Silverdale location or stop in Tuesday through Saturday.

French sailors visit carrier USS Stennis at sea By Daniel Schumacher USS John C. Stennis Public Affairs

U.S. 5TH FLEET AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY – Sailors from anti-air frigate Chevalier Paul (D621) visited aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) while underway in the Arabian Sea, Feb 9. The visit was part of a passing exercise to improve interoperability between the two navies. In order to experience daily carrier sea operations, 10 Chevalier Paul crew-

members observed flight operations from the flight deck, enjoyed a meal with Stennis Sailors in the aft mess decks, and toured several spaces throughout the ship. “Today was a good occasion for our sailors to see the high value unit, that is John C. Stennis, that we have been cooperating with for some time now,” said French Navy Lt. Karim Hebert, from Paris, France. “My time on John C. Stennis has been very friendly and

has been a great opportunity for us to experience life aboard an American carrier and its operations. Maitre Sebastien Chivot, from Toulon, France, said that he enjoyed touring such a large ship, and was pleased with his interactions with the John C. Stennis crew. John C. Stennis Sailors were also given a chance to observe daily operations aboard Chevalier Paul. They toured various spaces, including the ship’s bridge, combat information center,

vertical launch systems, and engine rooms. “The quality of life was especially excellent,” said Chief Information Systems Technician Michele Miley, from Bakersfield, Calif. “The ship felt very habitable and the technology on board was very organized and streamlined. I was very

impressed.” The John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group, consisting of John C. Stennis, Carrier Air Wing 9, Destroyer Squadron 21, and guided-missile cruiser USS Mobile Bay (CG 53) are forward deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility to strengthen regional

partnerships, sustain maritime security, and support combatant commander requirements for assets in the area. For more information about the Stennis visit www. and www. 74.

Me and the kids traveling: People repellant


I’m writing to you from onboard Amtrak’s Acela train, headed to see Dustin in Washington, D.C. Note: If you happened to be anywhere near us on this trip, I apologize. The boys and I boarded the train from Boston’s South Station, where no one in their right mind wanted to be seated next to us. With our pile of bags, blankets, toys, and Lindell, who was already wearing a monkey shaped neck pillow and carrying his green stuffed duck named Lindiddy, we were virtual people repellant. This made grabbing a fourperson seating arrangement with a table in the middle (prime real estate in train travel) easier. We were in serious travel mode, with miniature and travel versions of every board game known to man and no short supply of coloring books and crayons. I thought other travelers would be, too. However, it quickly became apparent to me onboard the train that we

were in the presence of 9-to5 business professionals traveling along the northeast corridor for important meetings and exciting weekend plans. They wore suits and high heels. They carried sleek briefcases and messenger bags. They talked on their smart phones. And few of them made use of the luggage bins at the front of the car or compartments overhead. They were traveling light. The boys and I were loaded down like pack mules, and we occupied our seats like we were moving in. Coloring books, electronics, boardgames, snacks and more stuffed animals spilled out of my bag. Lindell curled up with his blanket and monkey neck pillow. Ford and Owen fought over the snacks. Bodily functions were proudly announced and quickly shushed by me. The train hadn’t even left the station yet. Passengers who had just settled down beside us quietly moved away when they realized.

Late boarders thought they had scored: a whole car nearly empty and with seats free for the taking! Soon, these travelers smiled sheepishly and pretended to see someone they knew in an adjacent car before slinking away. The boys and I stretched out in our space, a wide buffer surrounding us that no one in a suit dared to penetrate. We unpacked more goodies and games. Lindell said he felt sick to his stomach. Travelers moved farther away. As we went south, however, the train grew more crowded and unsuspecting travelers were forced to sit beside us. One young lady and her boyfriend with trendy black shoes slid into the seats across from us. If they didn’t already have birth control, they were about to get it. We were like animals in a zoo for them. I’m not sure the boyfriend, in particular, had ever seen so many primary colors and

I’ve seen it in the movie Elf.” The man across from us smirked and looked away. I sighed. We had come so close to not mentioning Elf or SpongeBob Squarepants. Now we just looked silly. By 10 p.m., the boys had curled up in their seats as best they could and started to fall asleep. Lindell drooled on his monkey neck pillow, and Ford’s cheek was pressed against the glass. Games and half-eaten snacks littered the table. I tried to make eye contact with the man across from us. I wanted to smile knowingly, as if to say, “I’m sorry,” and “They’re only kids. It’s their first time on a train. They’re a little excited.” But the man never looked back. Each time one of the boys mumbled in their sleep or briefly snored, he rolled his eyes and sighed loudly.

conductor called his stop. He nearly ditched his girlfriend in order to not miss the chance to leave. I waved goodbye to him as Lindell snored softly, mouth open and drooling, on my shoulder. For the rest of the trip, I alternated between feeling depressed about our current state of affairs — I was “that” mom on public transportation — and responsible for reducing the world’s potential birth rate. Then, at Grand Central Station, as the boys and I came through the gate with all our gear in tow, I spotted Dustin. He was smiling like he hadn’t seen us in years. He ran to hug the kids and me. He grabbed the droolsoaked neck pillow without flinching. He reached out to hold grubby hands. And it was at that precise moment that an old cliche finally made sense to me: My three wide-eyed, stickymouthed and tired kids were a vision that perhaps only a mother and father could love.

From left, “The Strong People: A History of the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe,” is the product of more than four decades of interviews and five years of curating. “Necromancing the Stone” is Lish McBride’s follow-up to her award-winning debut novel, “Hold Me Closer, Necromancer.” Marissa Meyer’s latest young adult novel is “Scarlet.” Courtesy of the authors

collaboration between the Kitsap Regional Library system and area independent bookstores, is hosting presentations by three authors of books for young readers. Tacoma’s best-selling Marissa Meyer and Seattle’s Lish McBride will read from their most recent books March 5, 6:30 p.m., at the Poulsbo library, 700 NE Lincoln Road, Poulsbo. Meyer’s latest, “Scarlet,” is the sequel to her blockbuster “Cinder” and the second in her Lunar Chronicle series. Both books use fairy tales — Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood — as starting points for terrific reads set in a dystopian future. In “Scarlet,” title character Scarlet Benoit and Wolf, a street fighter who may have information about her missing grandmother, join forces with the cyborg Cinder as they try to stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana.

Publisher’s Weekly writes: “Returning fans of Meyer’s ‘Cinder’ will gladly sink their teeth into this ambitious, wholly satisfying sequel.” McBride’s “Necromancing the Stone” is a followup to her award-winning debut novel “Hold Me Closer, Necromancer.” With witty dialogue and a wicked sense of humor, McBride’s stories have been described as Mad magazine meets “Twilight.” Kirkus Reviews writes: “A slacker wrangles zombies, werewolves, gnomes and gods in this amiable second entry in a humorhorror mash-up series ... Sam’s marvelously witty, self-deprecating narration carries readers along effortlessly to the very end.” This event is free and open to the public. Readers who buy copies of either books at Liberty Bay Books in Poulsbo and Eagle Harbor Book Company on Bainbridge Island will be seated in the reserved section.

s Northwest wineries begin bottling some of their 2012 white wines, there still are plenty of 2011s left on store and winery shelves that can be found at good prices. This week, we take a look at white wines priced $15 and under that we have tasted recently. All but one of the six wines reviewed here are made by the Northwest’s two largest wine producers: Ste. Michelle Wine Estates in Woodinville, Wash., and Precept Wine in Seattle. Both make wine in such large amounts that they are able to take advantage of economies of scale. While some white wines will age, most made these days are meant to be consumed quickly. A few varieties, especially Riesling and Semillon, can be stored for years and gain fascinating complexities. However, there is little need to consider that with nearly every white wine produced. In fact, if you have any white wines older than 2009, it’s time to drink them. Today, we look at two varieties: Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. Both tend to be bright, crisp wines that pair beautifully with a wide range of cuisines, including seafood, chicken, curries, Mexican

Frannie Garcia of Kingston is one of 16 local cooks conributing to ‘Just A Pinch’ KINGSTON — Frannie Garcia’s Almond Pastry recipe has been awarded a blue ribbon from Just A Pinch Recipes, a recipe and coupon social network for home cooks at www. Garcia’s Almond Pastry was named a blue ribbon winner by Just A Pinch Food Editor Janet Tharpe. To land the award, Garcia served up a fullflavored dish that Tharpe described as tasty and easy to prepare. “I’ve always told people that this is an old family recipe that I got from my aunt that I have been making for decades. It is truly loved by everyone and often requested for family gatherings,” Garcia said in an announcement of the award. “The funny thing is that I remember getting it from my aunt, but when I made it for her, she told me it’s nothing like her recipe. She did love it, though.” Garcia is one of 16 Kingston residents sharing recipes with the social network, which in just two years has become the largest database of user-posted recipes.
