Healthful lunches take shape at Bremerton schools By WES MORROW

Hamburgers or fish nuggets with cornbread — that’s what students at Crownhill Elementary School in west Bremerton had for lunch on Friday. Hamburgers and fish nuggets might not sound like the most healthful lunch, but it’s the subtle changes that make the difference. The hamburger lunch Crownhill students eat today is vastly different from the hamburger lunch students ate in the past. Today it comes on a whole wheat bun, instead of the enriched white flour bun of the past. Today the fish nuggets are no longer fried — they’re baked instead. Four schools along with Crownhill have been recognized by the Healthier US School Challenge. Armin Jahr, Crownhill, Kitsap Lake, View Ridge and West Hills STEM Academy all received commendation for their work to improve student health. A total of 74 schools in 10 districts throughout the state received awards

from the challenge. To win schools must demonstrate improvements in nutritional quality of the food they serve, educate students on nutrition and provide students with physical education and opportunities for physical activity. The challenge gives out four levels of awards: bronze, silver, gold and gold of distinction. Armin Jahr, View Ridge and West Hills received bronze level awards, and Crownhill and Kitsap Lake received Silver. To be eligible schools must participate in the National School Lunch Program, a federal program where schools receive subsidies by meeting nutrition standards and providing free or reduced price lunches to children from low-income families. According to Lisa Johnson, the district’s child nutrition service director, all of Bremerton’s schools could have received awards, but her staff only had time to apply for the four elementary schools and STEM Academy this year. “Everyone is gold in my eyes,” Johnson said.

New Bremerton chief sees himself as a CEO, coach and cheerleader By KEVAN MOORE


Bremerton Police Chief Steve Strachan has been staying busy and well caffeinated since taking over the department a few weeks ago. “There’s kind of this period, this window right now, when people say, ‘Oh, there’s a new chief. Who is this guy? Where does he come from? What does he look like? How do I get a hold of him?’ So, I’ve been drinking an amazing amount of coffee,” Strachan said. Strachan says that getting the lay of the land as a new chief requires a lot of listening and being careful not to make changes simply for the sake of making changes. “Having been a chief before and having come

it.’ I wouldn’t say I’ve been resisting that, but I’d say that I’ve been very conscious about trying to get around and talk to people and spend some time lis-

tening.” Strachan said former Chief Craig Rogers, who retired in February after See CHIEF, A17

Congressman Derek Kilmer stood outside the main gate of the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility last Friday morning, offering up a simple greeting to hundreds of workers streaming past him: “Hey, I’m your representative. Let me know if I can help.” While Kilmer stood in Bremerton, President Obama and senior congressional leaders huddled at the White House. The government’s deadline for across-theboard spending cuts known as sequestration had passed, triggering $4 billion in Navy cuts over the next seven months that will likely lead to furloughs for the 11,000 civilian workers at PSNS-IMF. Kilmer said the passing of the sequestration deadline

has been his biggest surprise since deciding to run for Congress. “I’ve said for the last month when people ask me about sequestration, you’d like to think that rational actors, when pointing the gun at their own head would choose not to pull the trigger,” he said. “And, yet, Congress is letting this happen. I think this is a real mistake and I’m dead-set against it. I think it has huge impacts not just on our federal workforce, but on our entire economy.” Several workers told Kilmer they knew who he was Friday morning and shuffled past; one patted Kilmer’s back, offering a simple salutation of his own, “Get ‘er done.” Roy Wildes, a shipyard worker for the past eight years, stopped to speak briefly with Kilmer before headSee KILMER, A17

Kitsap residents will A wheelie good time form human peace sign By WES MORROW

Staff report Ten years ago, in March of 2003, 500 people assembled at Evergreen Park in Bremerton for a group photo. Dubbed “Kitsap Wants Peace,” the event was organized by a group of volunteers as a way to protest the launch of the Iraq war. Bremerton resident Wendy McNeal had a poster of the original photo-taking session and wondered if anyone would be interested in recreating the photo for the 10-year anniversary. She posted the idea on Facebook in January and garnered enough “Likes” to proceed. People interested in participating in “Kitsap Still Wants Peace: Human Peace Sign Photo” can gather at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 9, at Evergreen Park in Bremerton. Seattle photographer Alex Garland will take the shot at noon. “It takes longer than

About 500 people gathered in Evergreen Park in March 2003 for an event dubbed “Kitsap Wants Peace.” A reunion event to mark the ten-year anniversary is scheduled for this Saturday. you might think,” McNeal said, of corralling hundreds of people into a recognizable symbol. In 2003, a photographer on scaffolding took a photo of participants crowded together. “Once the amoebashape shots were taken, I busted an ‘executive’ decision-making move (against the wishes of some) just to see what we could do with a

mass peace sign,” said Hap Bockelie, who participated in the original photo and is helping with the anniversary. “Somehow, someway we pulled it off!” Like the original photo, this year’s image will be made into postcards. After the photo session, participants can listen to the band Dharma Sound and peruse information tables.

Some people might think Robert Campbell is one wheel short of a bicycle, but he doesn’t let that bother him. He started riding unicycles when he was 10 years old. Now, at age 25, Campbell hopes to bring the activity he loves to a greater audience. For the last couple years, Campbell said he has been talking to people in the area about the possibility of starting a Bremerton unicycling club. “I’ve been talking to a lot of people over the years who’ve wanted to do it but just haven’t had the time to get into it,” he said. Campbell said he has talked recently to at least a dozen people who have expressed interest in forming a group or learning to ride a unicycle. He said he hopes to grow that number by getting the word out to the community. “There’s not a lot of people who ride, so I’m trying to make it something that more people can ride,”


Campbell said, “so we can enjoy each other’s company when we do.” There are a few unicycling clubs at schools in Bremerton and Central Kitsap. Campbell said he had talked to people associated with one such club at Cougar Valley Elementary School.

The Bremerton Unicycle Club fundraiser can be found at projects/340491 He said working with the school groups is something in which he has also been interested, but his main goal with the unicycling club is to get the older demographic involved. “I want to make it something where everybody knows it’s available for adults, for teenagers, for everybody to ride,” Campbell said. Campbell has “two and a half” unicycles he is trying to fix up for members who don’t have their own to ride.

He has also started a fundraiser on, a website that allows users to create their own fundraising campaign and spread the word via the Internet. At press time the fundraiser had not made it far, with only $2 raised. If the fundraiser gets off the ground, Campbell said he hopes to make available multiple beginner unicycles, as well as more technical equipment like a tall “giraffe unicycle.” “The hardest part is getting people into it because a lot of people don’t have a unicycle to ride,” he said. In the long run, he would like to grow the club to the point where members could travel to competitions or even host their own. Having funding for those things would be nice, he said, but mainly he just wants to spread the word and give people the chance to experience unicycling. “Unicycling’s really a lot easier and more enjoyable than most people might think,” Campbell said. “It’s not just a circus act.”

Friday, March 8, 2013 | Bremerton Patriot

It’s all about keeping the public’s trust


It’s not uncommon to see a police car sitting by the roadside, idling with an officer inside the car. Maybe the office is running a speed trap, looking for drivers who are breaking the law. Or maybe the officer is waiting for a call from dispatch. It would be prudent for all of us not to jump to conclusions. But having said that, the City of Bremerton needs to get a handle on its fuel usage. In particular, the Bremerton Police Department needs to watch what they spend on gasoline. Recently, we reported that the Bremerton Police Department spend $192,014 on fuel last year, a considerably higher amount than most police agencies allocate on a per vehicle basis. That followed an audit last June by City Auditor Gary Nystul who noted that the city needed to more carefully monitor fuel consumption. Nystul recommended an overall policy to ensure adequate monitoring citing that one person needs to be responsible for the overall fuel operation. It’s time that happens. And it’s time that the City of Bremerton determine just how many vehicles it has. Included in the most recent report on fuel consumption was the fact that city officials aren’t certain whether the fuel usage was for 73 vehicles, or 38 vehicles, as was reported in 2011. The department has 57 swore officers. Measures are being taken by the city. More patrols are being made on bicycle when possible. And some vehicles have been equipped with a second battery to help power them while using less fuel. But with a new chief, now is the time for the Bremerton Police Department to enforce its policy that officers not to leave their vehicles running unnecessarily during patrols. It seems there needs to be a better watch on officers sitting in their vehicles, surfing the Internet and running their car engine as we reported last month. We all want timely response by the police when we call 9-1-1. We want police to patrol our neighborhoods. But each of us have to budget our gasoline use, especially when the price of fuel rises. We should expect the same from our public officials, especially when they are buying that gas on the taxpayer’s dime.

Roller derby: the hardest thing on wheels By WES MORROW

Last weekend the Slaughter County Roller Vixen hosted their fourth annual Wild West Showdown at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. If the only thing you understood from that last sentence was the fairgrounds, then make sure to read on. The Slaughter County Roller Vixen are a league of women who compete in the sport of roller derby. They take their name from the former name of Kitsap — the county used to be known as Slaughter County, after a local soldier, Lieutenant William Slaughter. The spirit of Slaughter lives on in the roller derby women of Central Kitsap. Roller derby is a tough sport. It’s a bit like rugby, only without the ball and played while zooming around an oval track on roller skates. It’s a contact sport — and it’s a women-only club. Men

often volunteer as referees or coaches, but can’t play. Slaughter County’s coach is Phil The Pain (not his real name — every derby player chooses a derby name, often tongue-in-cheek). “The hits are real,” Phil said. “I’ve seen broken bones at practices and at games.” Phil got involved with derby just after his wife, whose derby name is ReeArrangher. That was seven years ago. He acted as a referee for a while, and when the team’s old coach left, he stepped into the role he’s been playing ever since. There are more than a hundred roller derby leagues in the country sanctioned by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, the sport’s main governing body. Teams are split into four divisions. When the Slaughter County Roller Vixen’s hosted their Wild West Showdown last weekend, 16 sanctioned teams came from all around the western United States to participate. Roller Derby works on a ranking system. Teams rise or drop in division ranking based on their performance in sanctioned bouts against other teams. Most leagues have a sanctioned team and a development team. The Saints of Slaughter is the name of the roller vixen’s sanctioned

They bout (that’s derby-speak for compete, just like in boxing) around once a month. The team practices four times a week. Practices start at 9 p.m. and don’t end until 11. While roller derby is

growing rapidly in popularity, the players aren’t paid. Many of them have full-time jobs for which they have to be up early in the morning. One of the Slaughter County skaters even teaches at a local school. For the Slaughter County

Roller Vixen, derby is a fun hobby, but it’s also a serious sport. “People kind of have a misconception that derby is the dramatized stuff you see on TV,” said CindyLoo SmackYou. “There’s much more strategy to it than

just knocking each other down.” CindyLoo encouraged skaters who are interested in derby to come to a freshmeat practice, which they have on Sunday nights for new players. For people who don’t want to compete but are still interested in derby, CindyLoo encouraged them to attend a home bout and learn about the sport. The Roller Vixen usually have their bouts either at the fairgrounds or at Bremerton Skateland on Wheaton Way. Coach Phil said the matches are family friendly but there’s plenty to draw the adult crowd, including a beer garden. Their next home bout is April 27 at Skateland. Skaters have to be 18 to participate in the adult roller derby, but for those underage there are junior teams. Coach Phil said his daughter has been skating since she was 8 or 9 years old. She now skates with the local junior team, the Kitsap Derby Brats. When the women are on the floor it’s serious, Phil said. They’re throwing hits and playing without mercy, but when the final whistle blows there’s no animosity, just the sharing of “hugs and beers.” “It’s family fun,” Phil said. “It’s good hard athleticism … it’s like a sisterhood.”

USS Stennis to hear country performance By Leslie Kelly

When Jesse Taylor was just a little boy, he used to like to sit around the campfire and sing songs with his father who was a rodeo champion. Little did he know then, that his voice would take him all the way to Dubai to sing for those stationed aboard the USS John C. Stennis. “It all happened through a very random set of events,” said Taylor, 25, of Arlington, Wash. “I guess the stars aligned just right.” Taylor will perform while the ship is in port at Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates in mid March. He leaves Arlington Monday to fly commercial airlines to Dubai. The events that led him to the sailors began when he was working as a trail rider at the Ko’ele Lodge in Lana’i, Hawaii last summer. “I was leading trail rides and singing in a Four Seasons Hotel,” he said. “The commander of the ship (U.S.

Navy Rear Admiral Troy M. Shoemaker) heard me sing and asked me if I’d play for the men and women on his ship.” Of course his answer was “Yes,” and that led to his visit to Dubai. Taylor, a 2005 graduate of Arlington High School, has always liked music. And the rodeo. He wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a rodeo star. So he took up team roping and bull riding. But soon, the music took over. “That makes my mom happy,” he said. “Bull riding is kinda dangerous.” He kept singing after high school while he worked construction and a stint in a bail bonds office. Taylor then took off on a cross-country journey in 2010, playing in bars from Washington state to Georgia. On the way back, while playing in Montana, he was asked to take the job in Hawaii. “I’d just walk in any old bar with my guitar and ask if anybody wanted to hear a

song,” he said. “I’d play the old country songs and some of my own, too.” He had a CD that he recorded in his mother’s kitchen at home in Arlington. But after two years playing in Hawaii, he got the opportunity to record a CD, “Out Here in the Country,” in Nashville, at the Blackbird Studio, which is owned by country music star Martina McBride. That CD has 11 songs on it, nine he wrote and two that his father wrote. His favorite is “Talkin’ About Girls.” “I was leading this trail ride in Hawaii, and most everybody on it didn’t speak English,” he said. “I just got to thinking about how back in high school my buddy and I use to sit by the (Stillaguamish) river and talk about girls. What came out of that was this song.” His other favorite is “Rodeo in my Soul,” written by his father. “I always wanted to record that song,” he said. “Each

song on the CD has a story, but this one is special because it’s about my Dad.” His trip to Dubai is his first time out of the country. “I’m excited to see the city -- something different from the beach where I’ve been the past two years,” he said. “And I’m excited to play for a new crowd. I want to entertain the servicemen and women as a way of saying thanks for all that they do for us.” Following the visit to Dubai, Taylor will be back home in Arlington for his CD release party March 23 at Skookum Brewery. The national release of the CD is set for March 26. He plans a summer tour following the rodeo circuit across the country. Taylor’s website is www. and his title track is available on iTunes. The Stennis deployed from Bremerton in August 2012 and is expected back home in late Spring.

Lent and others who aren’t happy that the Bremerton Marina is at just a 35 percent occupancy rate. Lent also said she didn’t think the marina was being very well kept up, and said the moorage slips were dirty. Tompson said the port has some work to do to make the Bremerton Marina more competitive and get its occupancy percentages up. “I want to have the commissioners’ input into just how we do that,” he said. “And we want to let them (commissioners) know that we are doing our job.” Thompson said the commissioners have skills that are valuable to EMOVAL


what the staff does and he said the staff wants to “make sure they are a part of whatever we do.” Thompson recently drafted a restructuring and downsizing plan that he presented to the commissioners last month. That plan called for the elimination of five positions and a total cost savings of $443,555. He said this week that three maintenance positions have been eliminated and one open position, director of maintenance facilities, will not be filled. Two other positions, a maintenance manager and the director of business development, are being phased out and those positions

will be eliminated within the month. Ot her measu res including cutbacks in maintenance costs and a restructuring in the finance department are expected to help the port see the $443,555 annual savings. “These things are all in process,” he said. “The initiatives are aimed at efficiency and with that will come a cost reduction.” Port properties include the Bremerton National Airport, the Bremerton and Port Orchard marinas, and the Port of Bremerton business and industrial park located at the airport.

Port of Bremerton CEO Tim Thomson is open to the idea of having a planning retreat with the Port of Bremerton commissioners, he said this week. Thomson was out of town and not in attendance at the last port meeting when Commissioner Roger Zabinski asked for a retreat in order to do strategic business planning. Zabinski said he thought it was important that the commissioners sit down when they had at least a four-hour block of time to “stratigize about increasing the occupancy at the (Bremerton) marina” and at the other port facilities including the airport and the industrial

park. “We need to capture all the ideas we have and give them to the CEO and the staff to work with,” Zabinski said. “We need to have a business plan.” But commissioners Axel Strakeljahn said he didn’t think it was necessary. “That’s what we have staff for,” he said. “That’s why we have a staff — to do this very kind of thing.” Zabinski said, however, that he saw this as the responsibility of the commissioners. “We were elected to do this very sort of thing,” he said. “We’re the ones in charge of setting the policy and the staff is there to carry it out. We need to get together and hear each other’s ideas and draft a plan and then

Bremerton city council to weigh in on conference center expansion By KEVAN MOORE

The Bremerton City Council was expected to officially weigh in this week on an effort to expand the Kitsap Conference Center by some 7,000 square feet by taking over the top floor of the adjacent Kitsap Transit building. The matter was on the council’s agenda for Wednesday night’s meeting. The center’s existing footprint is about 10,000 square feet. According to Columbia Hospitality, which runs the conference center for the city, the expansion could bring in an additional $516,360 next year if it opens by Jan. 1. Financial projections put

together by the company also predict annual increases in revenue by three percent beginning in 2015. The center is budgeted to bring in more than $1.3 million. The current proposal calls for the city to make tenant improvements in lieu of paying rent to Kitsap Transit for two years. Mayor Patty Lent said the money for those improvements could come from the Public Facilities District, which contributed $7 million to build the existing center and boost tourism. “This will definitely advance tourism because of the (hotel) room nights that larger conventions will bring to Bremerton,” Lent said of the expansion.

Lent said that the new third-floor space would allow for additional breakout rooms for conferences, wedding receptions and other events. She said another advantage to the space is that it is full of windows that afford beautiful views, something that is lacking in the center’s current meeting spaces. City Council President Greg Wheeler said that the proposal sounds great, but a lot of details still need to be hammered out. “It has the makings of a great business plan, but we’ll have to get the details before we go further,” he said. “The council doesn’t have an estimate of what the repairs would be and we don’t know

what the rent would be after two years.” Wheeler also noted that the amount of money that the Public Facilities District will contribute to the project has not been determined. “If they don’t come up with the full amount, where would the rest of it come from?” Wheeler asked. Wheeler, though, sounded optimistic about the opportunity to expand the conference center, which he described as a vital downtown presence. “They do a great job down there,” he said. “There’s been many, many times when we’ve had events down there that are above and beyond anything else that’s been done. They do bring a lot of

activity downtown and have turned it into a countywide meeting place.” Lent and City Attorney Roger Lubovich have been working on an inter-local agreement with Kitsap Transit to nail down specifics associated with the expansion and this week’s vote by the council is meant to serve as a green light for that work to continue. Barbara Rush, a Columbia Hospitality employee who serves as the director of operations for the conference center, said this week that there are ten full-time and ten part-time, or oncall, “team members” working there now. “We would look at hiring a minimum of ten new team

members if not more,” Rush said of the expansion. “We’re really excited about the opportunity and bringing more business to Bremerton and making a larger impact than we’re already able to do.” Lenny Zilz, a vice president of operations with Columbia Hospitality, said his firm wants to move forward with the expansion as soon as possible. “The goal is to get improvements completed by year’s end and the new facility available by January 1, 2014,” he wrote to city councilors. “Moreover, once its approved, we would start marketing and selling it immediately.

surrender their guns and a waiver for background checks on concealed pistol license holders and police officers. Background checks for all gun sales A proposal that would require private gun sales to be subject to a background check similar to existing requirements for licensed gun dealers was narrowly passed out of committee in an executive session Feb. 19 in a 7-6 vote. HB 1588, sponsored by Rep. Jamie Pedersen (D-43rd District, Seattle), contains exemptions for some antique or rare firearms and buyers who have a state-issued concealed pistol license. The proposal’s public hearing before the House Judiciary Committee on Feb. 13 drew about 100 citizens, who packed two hearing rooms in the John L. O’Brien Building at the state capital. The bill, which is supported by members of several law-enforcement organizations as well as gun-control advocates, was criticized by gun-rights supporters for restricting gun ownership and inconveniencing lawabiding gun buyers and sellers. The bill’s next step is the House Rules Committee. If approved it would head to the House floor, where there is a Democratic majority. It and other gun-control bills moving through the House are likely to have a difficult journey in the Senate, however, where two

Democrats -- Sens. Rodney Tom (D-48th D-strict, Medina) and Tim Sheldon (D-35th District, Potlatch) -- have joined Senate Republicans to form a de facto Republican majority. Gun-offender registry Those guilty of a gun crime may have to register with an offender database. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Mike Hope (R-44th District, Lake Stevens), would create a state registry of gun offenders for use by police. Hope, who is also a Seattle police officer, said the registry would help police be more aware of those likely to commit gun violence. “When somebody commits homicide with a gun, they’ve typically and usually had a prior gun offense,” explained Hope. The database would not be public and would be managed by the Washington State Patrol. The requirement to register or not would be decided by the judge of each criminal case. Some who testified at the hearing raised concerns about whether the database would really stay private and not be subject to publicinformation requests as is Washington’s sex-offender and kidnapper database. The bill, HB 1612, was passed out of committee in a 12-1 vote on Feb. 21. Restraining orders and guns Those served with certain restraining, no-contact or protection orders would be required to surrender their guns to law enforcement

while the order is in place under HB 1840, sponsored by Rep. Roger Goodman (D-45th District, Kirkland). The bill would make it illegal to possess a gun or CPL while under a restraining order and determined by the court to be a threat to a significant other, whether current or former, or a child. The court would order the person served to relinquish any guns to police within five days. The firearms would be returned when the order is lifted. The measure was passed out of committee Feb. 21 in a 10-3 vote. No background checks for some A bill also sponsored by Goodman would drop the requirement for a state background check when an active police officer or state CPL holder purchases a handgun from a dealer. In 2011, the Legislature passed a law intended to bring Washington’s CPL requirements up to federal standards. The law, however, didn’t address state gun transfer laws that required a state background check in addition to a federal one. Goodman says he seeks to address that with HB 1839. Under the bill, a valid CPL issued on or after July 22, 2011, could waive the requirement for both a federal check as well as a state background check. A concealed pistol license issued after that date would be subject to a national check but not the state background check.

McCloud’s offers country style dining with all the fixin’s By Leslie Kelly

When Andy Graham came up with a plan to take over a well-known Bremerton restaurant and bar, some of his family and friends thought he was taking quite a risk. They weren’t worried that he wanted to have a restaurant because they all knew he was an old pro at that. But they were concerned about the place he decided to buy. “This place has been here for some time,” he said. “In the 1960s, it was called Brad’s. But it also had a reputation for being a place where, at times, it got rough and fights broke out.” He bought McCloud’s anyway. And in the past two and a half years he’s turned it into a family-friendly steakhouse and barbecue restaurant that boasts about its ribs and offers a wood-floored corral and plastic ponies for the kids to ride while the parents talk. He and a business partner had been trying to build a restaurant in Bremerton, but when that specific location didn’t work out, he set out to find another. Graham also sells commercial real estate and it was through that business that he learned that McCloud’s was for sale. “I came to see it and I thought, ‘What a great place for a steakhouse,’” he said. He did a bit of remodeling, opening up the windows at the front of the building which had been boarded over. He has since enlarged the dance floor and added a

But the basics, he liked. “I liked what was inside,” he said, referring to the finishings that give the place a western county twang. Tables are covered with red and white checked tablecloths. Cowboy hats, deer antlers, horse saddles and the American flag adorn the walls. There is a long bar with wooden stools and saloon doors to the kitchen. It’s the kind of place where customers eat peanuts at the table and throw the shells on the floor, where country music is played, line-dancing is offered on the weekends and a sign over the bar welcomes “Rednecks.” “But we’re really a place for

Vanorsby is a trained culinary chef who also learned the art while cooking in the military. He’s studied at Johnson and Wales, a formal culinary arts school and he’s cooked at McCormick’s in Seattle. He joined McCloud’s last August and brought with him his barbecuing expertise. “There’s a real difference between grilling and barbecuing,” he said. “You gotta know your spices.” With Vanorsby’s help,

McCloud’s now has some specialties including empanadas with a chimichurri dip that has an Argentinean flare. He added a grilled salmon with a verde sauce, and baconwrapped jalapenos. And he brought with him his “magic dust.” “That’s what we call the spices that we add to our burgers ­— Curtis’ magic dust,” he said. “We make our own ground beef from a mix of ground chuck and brisket and we add the seasonings. No one around here has a burger like ours.” The most popular item at McCloud’s, however, are the ribs. And to accompany them and the brisket and the pulled pork are three dif-

That’s why I have things for the kids.” In fact, there’ll be an Easter egg hunt in April, where bales of hay will be brought in and broken apart. That is where the candy and toys will be hidden. Then there’ll be kids karaoke. The restaurant does have pool tables, darts and big screen televisions.

Paint recycling bill backed by public and private sector By WES MORROW

Waste management bills under consideration in the state Legislature could make it easier for Kitsap residents to recycle paint and create savings for local government. The bills would create a central nonprofit organization, which would manage the collection of hazardous paint products throughout Washington. This nonprofit would be funded by the state’s paint manufacturers. Under current legislation, local government is respon-

sible for the collection and disposal of hazardous paint. Local collection is managed by the public works department, and at the moment residents who want to dispose of paint products need to travel to its collection facility near Belfair. Rick Gilbert, moderate risk waster program manager for public works, said if the bills pass disposal options would likely increase dramatically, making it so residents in north Kitsap wouldn’t have to travel as far. People would be able to visit retail outlets to take back old paint, instead of

traveling to only one location near Belfair. Oregon has adopted similar legislation to the bills on the table in Washington. Gilbert said if the Washington legislation comes out similar to Oregon’s, it could save his department $125,000 per year in transportation and disposal costs alone. Gilbert said Kitsap is one of the only counties in the Puget Sound area that still accepts latex-based paints. Many other counties have stopped accepting the paint since it is now considered slightly less toxic than it

Your lawn: that first cut As spring approaches it’s time to get your lawn ready. In a couple of weeks it will be time to thatch your lawn for the grow season. It’s a great time to get a soil test to see what nutrients your lawn lacks. To get a soil test, take soil samples from a couple areas of the lawn. Put the soil in a clean sealed plastic bag and send it to a soil testing facil-

ity. To find one, look online or in the yellow pages, or call the Master Gardeners for references. It’s a bit early to thatch. But start with a good mowing. Take some time to observe the areas that are damaged from winter or that the moles have gotten to. Notice any other damage that has happened. It is very important that you have your mower

in great working order. Remember to always wear safety gear working on or around your mower. This time of year it is a great time to add plants in your yard as well as tidying up. In my past writings, I mentioned adding mulch to your lawn. Also set aside an area where you can have your lawn compost ready. While cutting your lawn


used to be, and because the paint is so expensive to dispose of. Public Works isn’t the only group backing the legislation, however. The majority of independent retailers in Washington also support the bills. Ray Donahue owns Peninsula Paint, which has locations around Kitsap County. Donahue said he supports the legislation for a number of reasons. It would help reduce the amount of improperly disposed paint and it would save his business money. Right now, paint business-

es like Donahue’s have to pay for disposal of extra or unneeded paint, but under new legislation, this would be covered by an assessment added to paint purchases. Gilbert said the Oregon program adds somewhere around 75 cents onto a gallon of paint to fund the recycling program. Some paint would still have to disposed of by the county, like contaminated paint or paint from containers with no label. Both Donahue and Gilbert said that one benefit of the proposed legislation was its backing by members of the

I always do a perimeter run first. Then I find a point to make a straight cut so every mow you’re not mowing in the same direction. This will eliminate the ruts. Next week, I will go over thatching and what steps to take to get that natural lawn going. Here’s a question from a reader: My tree looks sad. What can I do to get it healthy? Answer: I like to put some

organic fertilizer spikes in the root zone in the spring. To do this measure the tree caliber. That will tell you how many spikes to put in the drip zone. Remember to always read the label and more is never better. Finally add the mulch, start at the bark flare and add more as you go away from the plant. Water your trees if it doesn’t rain. Happy gardening to you and yours. - Gardener Joe

A 21-year-old Marine from Naval Base Kitsap is being charged with assault after allegedly fighting with police officers on a Bainbridge Island ferry Sunday morning. Andrew P. Mclemore, 21, remains in Kitsap County Jail on $50,000 bail for a charge of third-degree assault after he allegedly attacked and fought with a Bainbridge Island police officer and a deputy from the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. Mclemore is stationed at Bangor at Naval Base Kitsap. Law enforcement officers were called to the Bainbridge ferry terminal after a fight broke out among military members while the ferry was on its way to the island on the 2:10 a.m. March 3 boat from Seattle. Police reports said that some of the men had threatened to shoot others. “There was a large fight between two large groups of intoxicated individuals while the ferry was en-route,” said Sheriff’s Deputy Scott

Wilson. Police from Bainbridge Island, Poulsbo and Suquamish, as well as Kitsap deputies and troopers from the Washington State Patrol, responded to the call. “When law enforcement agencies got on board, they were trying to figure out who was who,” Wilson said. Once docked, officers began talking to witnesses and potential suspects. One man, Mclemore, was not involved in the original altercation on the ferry but refused to leave. Police reports state that Mclemore appeared highly intoxicated. “(Officers) ended up dealing with this one individual,” Wilson said. “He was essentially trying to pick a fight.” As a ferry worker asked Mclemore to leave, he stared into space before letting loose with a stream of obscenities. He then allegedly began swearing at Deputy Will Sapp, who told Mclemore to leave the boat. Mclemore then took a “fighting stance,” however,

It was referred to the Ways and Means committee where it awaits the next step. The paint stewardship’s sister bill in the state House of Representatives did not make it out of committee. The Senate has until sometime in April to refer the bill to the House.

and continued to aggressively yell and curse at Sapp, according to police reports. Once the deputy began to approach Mclemore, he started to leave the ferry but continued to scream obscenities. Sapp then walked up to Mclemore on the catwalk of the ferry. Mclemore swung around with his fist at Sapp, and the deputy pushed Mclemore away to avoid the punch. Mclemore then pushed Sapp back against a metal gate. Bainbridge Officer Trevor Ziemba ran to assist Sapp and pushed Mclemore against a wall. The two men then were face-to-face, and Mclemore swung his elbow and struck Ziemba in the face. Ziemba called for help. “Take him to the ground,” Ziemba said, according to police reports. Sapp and other officers assisted, and once Mclemore was on the ground, he continued to scream obscenities and resisted officers, grabbed at them and tried to pull away. Within two minutes of the alleged assault, Mclemore was placed into handcuffs. Ziemba was treated at the scene for a swollen jaw. Mclemore was immediately transported to the Kitsap County Jail.

Cougars look to send coach off with a bang By WES MORROW

An Olympic High School player takes a swing at a pitch in a past season.

The Central Kitsap High School fast-pitch team feel they are set to make a run this year. Coach Bruce Welling said the team this year is a solid but for its one weakness: “The coaches are getting older,” he joked. Last year the cougars made it to the state tournament, finishing the year tied for eighth in the state. Returning players from last year’s team are confident that they can replicate last year’s success. “We’re seniors this year,” said pitcher Caylee Coulter. “We’re going to be even better.” The cougars only graduated three starters from

last year. The Knights only lost two starters last year, but those who’ve returned will have to step up if Bremerton wants to make it out of league play and into districts.

Baseball and fast-pitch teams will be having their first games this weekend or early next week. Three local teams from the Olympic League, Bremerton, Klahowya and Olympic are all looking to go further than last year.

“Last year we struggled with hitting,” said Coach Steve Schorzman. “If we struggle with hitting we’re going to have to claw and scratch for everything.”

Bremerton Led by Eli Fultz, Bremerton is looking to improve upon a mediocre 9-7 league record from

7th consecutive season. Regardless of the inexperience on the mound going into 2013, the expectations are high for head coach Nate Andrews. “We need to find out which guys should fill out our line-up. There is

last year’s team: a centerfielder, shortstop and a first-baseman. “They (the graduates) are great players and everything,” Coulter said, “but we’ll be fine.” Welling said the team has brought in a good freshman class, which will help fill the small void left by the departing seniors. Coulter agreed, saying the freshman class brings in new experience. Welling said he anticipates this year’s team will do just as well as or better than last year. Both Welling and his players anticipated their key opponents will be Bellarmine and South Kitsap. Bellarmine won the Narrows league last year, but the cougars

knocked them out of the state tournament. South Kitsap is coached by Jessica Cabato, a former Central Kitsap player and assistant coach under Welling. No matter how this season ends, Welling announced earlier this year that he plans to retire from Central Kitsap at the end of the school year. Welling helped start the fast-pitch program at Central Kitsap and has been its coach since it began in the early 1980s. Third-baseman Emily Gorecki said she’s glad Welling waited to retire until after their senior season. She spoke about both her senior teammates and Welling: “We have to go out with a bang.”

Notable losses: Clark Rose, Robbie Campos.

Notable returning players: Drew Fagan, Dylan Kieffer, Jacob Burton. “We think that with our senior leadership and the number of talented young guys we have, we will compete for a playoff spot this year,” said coach Dan Zuber.

Low income dental assistance coming soon By WES MORROW

The first buildings for the planned east Bremerton Youth Wellness Campus are on their way, and one of the first groups to move into the campus this fall will be Lindquist Dental Clinic. Lindquist is a nonprofit that provides dental services to children of low-income families. From birth to their 19th birthdays, children can receive dental care at one of the nonprofit’s four south sound clinics regardless of compensation. The nonprofit has clinics in Parkland, Tacoma, Buckley and Gig Harbor. The Bremerton campus will be its fifth. With its Tacoma and Gig Harbor clinics, Lindquist partnered with the Boys & Girls Club. When its Bremerton clinic opens, the two groups will once again team up — the dental clinic will share space with the Boys & Girls Club teen center. Carolyn McDougal, Lindquist’s president and CEO, said the Bremerton center will be a six chair clinic, operating on 1,500 of the wellness campus’s 10,000 square feet. “We’re anxious to be able to get to know people in the county,” McDougal said. McDougal said the nonprofit had been looking to add another center when they were approached by the

Bremerton wellness campus’s steering committee, of which Mayor Patty Lent and Bremerton Superintendent Flip Herndon are members. “If Bremerton had a youth wellness campus, it only makes sense that you’d have dental care,” McDougal said. Perhaps one of the biggest assets the dental nonprofit brings to the Bremerton area is its agreement with TRICARE, the insurance coverage plan for military personnel and their families. Naval Base Kitsap employs more people in the county than any other employer by a wide margin, many of them in Bremerton. According to McDougal, military-dependent children don’t receive dental coverage. TRICARE covers their medical but not their dental services. “(TRICARE has) allowed us to provide care to those families that qualify, according to their income level and size, without charging co-pays and deductibles,” McDougal said. The wellness campus will be located on Wheaton Way, in the heart of Bremerton School District’s coverage area. The campus will actually be situated on land owned by the school district. School district community relations coordinator Patty Glaser said dental care is a big concern for low-income students in Bremerton. “That has been an issue

Oral problems caused by a lack of dental care is the number one reason students from low-income families miss school, according to McDougal. A report by the Surgeon General in 2000 stated “more than 51 million hours are lost each year to dental-related illness.” Glaser said that while she wasn’t sure if dental issues were the highest cause in Bremerton, it has been a major issue. “Students who don’t have access to dental care who come to school with dental

problems are not focusing on their education,” Glaser said. Lack of TRICARE coverage coupled with Bremerton’s high poverty rate accentuate the area’s need for affordable dental care. More than 60 percent of students in Bremerton come from low-income households. Some of the district’s schools, such as West Hills STEM Academy, have low-income enrollment rates as high as 75 percent. Glaser said the district has been trying to inform parents about how to access dental care for years. However, Glaser said, the issue has

evolved from simply getting out information to finding dentists who are willing to accept Medicaid, since most will only accept a limited number of Medicaid patients. “I think (Lindquist) will definitely increase the number of possibilities for our families that are in need of dental care,” Glaser said. Because need for dental care in Bremerton was greater than availabel care, the Department of Health had been referring families to Lindquist’s clinics in Gig Harbor and Tacoma. For the families Lindquist serves, McDougal said, traveling that

far for dental care is a luxury they often can’t afford. McDougal wanted to preemptively comfort Bremerton dentists who might feel threatened by the nonprofit moving into the area. “The TRICARE patients they’re seeing probably aren’t the ones we’re going to be seeing,” she said. “The ones we’ll be seeing probably can’t afford it, probably aren’t taking their kids to the dentist.” McDougal said the nonprofit doesn’t want to step on dentists’ toes. It’s simply there to provide dental care to children who otherwise wouldn’t receive it. She said Lindquist is supported by dentists in Pierce County and would like to work side-by-side with dentists in Kitsap County. The preface of the 2000 Surgeon General’s report goes as far as to say dental and oral disease in some population groups amounts to a “silent epidemic.” The report concludes, “The evidence that not all Americans have achieved the same level of oral health and well-being stands as a major challenge, one that demands the best efforts of public and private agencies and individuals.” It is that call to action which Lindquist Dental looks to answer. “We’re looking to be a resource,” McDougal said. “There should be no reason why there’s a child in your community that doesn’t have dental care.”

Bremerton climber hopes to build climbing gym A Bremerton businessman hopes to build an indoor rock-climbing gym in the Coppertop Loop business park on Bainbridge Island. Jason Lawson of Bremerton and Michele Lang of Bainbridge Island submitted an application last week to the city of Bainbridge Island for a conditional use permit for the new business. Island Rock Gym would be built inside the building formerly used by Gravitec Systems, Inc. before the company moved to Poulsbo. “My goal has been to bring indoor rock climbing back to the Kitsap community; back to the peninsula,” Lawson said. “We really like the community feel on Bainbridge and think that it would be a good fit,” he said. Lawson has been working in the climbing industry for about 12 years, and is currently the director of sales and operations for Elevate Climbing Walls,

a Lynnwood-based company that builds custom climbing walls for clients across the country. Elevate Climbing Walls will build the climbing walls for the Bainbridge gym, he said. Lawson said the new gym would have approximately 6,000 square feet of climbing terrain, with the maximum height in the gym of about 36 feet high. The gym will be able to accommodate top roping, lead climbing and bouldering. Kitsap County has lacked a commercial indoor climbing gym since the closure of Vertical World in Bremerton in late 2011. But the trip to climbing facilities in Seattle or Tacoma, Lawson said, has been too much of a hassle for many Kitsap climbers. Lawson said it’s typical for devotees of the sport to climb twice a week or more, and he said he’s gotten a welcoming

response from climbers throughout the area — and others — who are excited about a climbing gym opening here. “Many people tried to make the trek over to Seattle or to Tacoma to do climbing, but it just proved very expensive and very time consuming for most. Even myself, as an avid climber,” he said. Lawson got his start in the sport at Bremerton’s Vertical World back in 2001. He was a competitive climber as a youth, and he later became a climbing coach. “It kind of took over my life,” he said. Rock climbing continues to grow in popularity, Lawson said. He recalled how the first climbing gym was built in Seattle in 1987; the city now boasts five or so in the area, plus two in Tacoma. Nationwide, Lawson said there are more than 500 indoor climbing gyms, with more than 60 in California alone.

Climbing attracts a wide variety of enthusiasts, he said. “I’ve worked training programs with people as old as 75 and I’ve also worked with kids as young as 3. If you can walk, you can climb,” he said. In his application to the city, Lawson said the gym will require a four-month buildout after permits are received, and the business would then immediately open to the public. Island Rock Gym would be open to all ages and abilities, and plans to offer open climbing, instructional youth climbing programs, adult classes and event rentals, such as for birthday parties. Word is starting to get around about the plans for the new gym, which Lawson said he hopes to open by early August. “People are very excited. The community response has been extremely positive,” he said.

Teachers doing a lot with what they’ve got By WES MORROW

Take a look around the room. Explain what you have, what you’re doing with it all, and what you would do if you had more stuff. For many of us, it’s already hard to justify the use of the things we already have, let alone convince someone we need more. Hannah Meucci and Andrea Tee, teachers at Bremerton’s West Hills STEM Academy, went through this process and convinced judges at the Shell Science Lab Challenge that they deserved quite a bit more stuff. Meucci and Tee teach sixth and seventh grade at West Hills. This fall they

wrote a grant proposal to the Science Lab Challenge, outlining the resources they had and how they were using them. T h e two teachers tried to explain to Hannah Meucci judges the minimal resources they had at their disposal. “We’re a STEM school, so we’re supposed to be having hands-on, career-relatable experiences, and right now our students are not experiencing a lot of the work related aspects,” Meucci said. According to Meucci and Tee, the classes lack proper microscopes, petri dishes and other practical science

equipment. “We do not have an eye washing station should children put chemicals in their eyes,” Tee said. T e e stressed the level of Andrea Tee importance the classes place on safety, always wearing protective eye-wear during experiments. Even with those protective measures, she admitted, without the eyewashing station there are a number of important projects her class simply can’t perform. When Meucci and Tee’s proposal was accepted, they spent their weekends in the winter creating a video to show the judges the equipment they worked with and what they lacked. At the end of February, the Science Lab Challenge announced West Hills as one of 18 regional winners throughout the United States and Canada. Wes Hills beat out every other school that applied in Washington, Oregon and Alaska. Among those 18 winners, four finalists and one grand prize winner will

be selected for additional awards. Meucci and Tee are anxiously awaiting an email that could come any day, telling them whether or not West Hills will be one of those finalists. “While we do want to continue on, we are grateful for what we’ve gotten thus far,” Tee said. The Science Lab Challenge will award West Hills a total of $3,000, including donated lab equipment, money to buy equipment of the school’s choosing and gift certificates to the National Science Teachers Association book store. Shell will also pay for Meucci and Tee to attend a 2013 science education conference. If West Hills makes it to the finalist stage the school will receive an additional $5,500 in awards, and the grand prize winner will receive and additional $11,500 for a total prize of $20,000. Meucci and Tee said, regardless of whether they make it further or not, the first things they will buy will be new microscopes. The high-powered microscopes they need, however, aren’t cheap. Even with $1,000 they estimated that

they could probably only afford a couple. “Even if it’s just two, even if that’s all we can afford, we will at least have two at this school,” Meucci said. “Having a microscope opens a world.” Meucci and Tee said even now, many of their projects wouldn’t be possible without the help of Bremerton High School’s CTE and science programs, which often let them borrow portable equipment. “We are definitely scavengers,” Meucci said. There are often things the teachers can’t borrow, like equipment that isn’t portable. For many things, Tee said, they have to either improvise or pay for it themselves. “Creativity,” Tee said, “It’s either creativity or my personal checkbook.” West Hills was transformed in the last couple years after dwindling performance, re-opening as a STEM academy in 2011. It serves fourth through seventh grades, and next year will add eighth grade to its classes offerings. Since the re-opening test scores and performance have indicated a dramatic turn-

around. Earlier this school year, West Hills was awarded a $19,000 lighthouse grant from the state to show its innovate and successful STEM model to other schools in Washington. The school serves a particularly high number of children from low-income families. Nearly 78 percent of its students come from families that live at or below the federal poverty level. For a single parent and one child, this equates to a maximum annual income of $27,991. “Our kids are definitely grateful for what they get to come to school and experience,” Tee said. As for Meucci and Tee, they said they just hope to help provide their sixth and seventh grade students with real world experience — which they think will be greatly improved by the additional lab equipment they will get from the challenge. While the two hope to make it further in the Science Lab Challenge, they, like their students, are thankful for what they have. As Tee said it: “Ultimately, I think this is just us continuing the dream of the school.”

Remembering the military lifestyle at the Pentagon When you live in a mostly civilian town as we have for the past five years, after living in high-density military areas for the first 30 years of your life, some of the services’s nuances fade from memory. The feeling is similar to moving away from home and forgetting your family’s subtler traditions, like the Christmas plates with a holly green border, or the wire, tabletop tree with heart-shaped ornaments your mom puts out on Valentine’s Day. It usually takes going back home for these memories to resurface, like they never were forgotten. A recent trip to Washington D.C. and a visit with Dustin at his new job at the Pentagon was this homecoming for me. I remembered the military way of life as if I’d never been away from it. Almost immediately on the Metro, even the first thing I recalled was the uniforms, or, specifically, seeing other people besides my husband in them. Navy uniforms are nearly obsolete in Bangor, Maine. Indeed, they aren’t that common across the entire state now that NAS Brunswick has closed. If I see a man in khakis or summer whites, it’s probably my husband. The Navy uniform is such a novelty here, one time a woman stopped me at a reception and asked, “Do you mind taking a picture of me with that Navy man over there?” I looked in the direction she was pointing. “That one over there,” I said. “In the white uniform?” “Yes,” she said. “I’ll just go stand next to him and you take the picture.” I did as she requested, but before I gave back camera, I said, “My husband sure is cute, isn’t he?” On the Metro in D.C., military uniforms aren’t necessarily ubiquitous, but they aren’t all that unusual either. I saw men and women in uniforms representing all branches of the service.

Navy Wise

Sarah Smiley At first the children were surprised. “Hey, look,” Lindell said. “It’s someone dressed like Daddy!” After a while, however, he realized there were plenty of Daddy look-a-likes in the city. In fact, we almost didn’t spot Dustin in a sea of khaki, green and blue when he met us at the entrance to the Pentagon. Inside, the Pentagon felt very familiar even though this was my first time visiting it. Everything from the office doors to the floor mats out front were standard militaryissue. They reminded me of every building on base I’ve been to around the country, only, this was the Pentagon, so it had an added air of mystique. Originally, I thought the inside of the Pentagon would be more like the inside of the Capitol or the Smithsonian. I imagined marble, dome ceilings, and Romanesque columns. I mean, we were in D.C. after all. But, no, if you’ve seen one military building, you’ve pretty much seen them all: utilitarian and grey, with lots of metal and blue carpeting. For me, it was a lot like being on an aircraft carrier. Yes, it’s almost incomprehensibly big, but once you’re inside, you could be anywhere -- anywhere that has spyresistant coated windows, that is. In any case, the familiarity was comforting. The people inside the Pentagon were familiar, too. They talked about things that aren’t typical in our life in Maine. They said things like “IA,” “TAD,” and “PCS” without stopping to explain. We all knew. I imagine this is what visiting a foreign land is like, then coming home

to speak your native language. But the most familiar and reassuring part of our trip down military memory lane in D.C. was meeting with Dustin’s boss, Vice Admiral Robin Braun, the first female chief of the Navy Reserves. Her office is decorated with all the things I love and remember about military life: plaques, pictures of aviation, a wooden conference table decorated with Challenge Coins. Admiral Braun showed us the Pentagon Memorial outside an office window and showed us a model airplane that had been inside one of the offices that was hit on 9/11. It still has a layer of soot on it, so it is protected and enclosed in glass. We peered across the highway to Arlington National Cemetery and the rows of graves going up and down the hillside like a ribbon. We talked about service and sacrifice. And one of the most important memories of all came to me: why my husband chooses to serve. As we left D.C. and returned to Maine, I felt like I was coming home. But I also felt like I had left behind a different kind of home in the military surroundings of the city and the Pentagon. I miss my husband while he is away during the week, but I am now comforted to know that he is in our second home: the military lifestyle, which is all we’ve ever really known.

Local Navy Seaman promoted Navy Seaman Apprentice Richard D. Meadows, son of Josefina O. Meadows of Bremerton, and Richard D. Meadows, of Shelton, was recently promoted to his current rank upon graduation from recruit training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. Meadows received the early promotion for outstanding performance during all phases of the training cycle. Training which


included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations”. This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to

galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly “Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor. Meadows is a 2010 graduate of Klahowya Secondary School in Silverdale.

Vietnam vets wait for ‘Welcome home’ and a member of the Yakama Warriors Association, said he wants to make sure Vietnam Veterans are not forgotten. “We were looked down on when we came home from Vietnam,” he said. “That still lives inside many of us today. To have a day that we are recognized for what we did for the nation, that would bring closure and help us put away the guilt.” The Yakama Warriors are a group of American Indian Vietnam Veterans who support each other and veteran causes, he said. As the group’s cultural representative, he took on working with the State Legislature to see that the day be proclaimed. Calac said a similar day was designated last year in Oregon and in California, and he is working with others to try to get a national day of recognition passed by the U.S. Congress. Here in Washington state, once the bill passes the Senate, it will be signed into law and a proclamation will be issued by Gov. Jay Inslee. Events are being set for Friday, March 29, to precede the March 30 date when the proclamation will designate that the American flag, the Washington state flag and the MIA/ POW flag will fly over all state buildings, including the Capitol in Olympia. On March 29, the Yakama Warriors, any other Vietnam Veterans and their families are invited to the Capitol where

Fire crews mop up a Bremerton mobile home fire Monday.

Neighbors stop fire Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue responded to a structure fire in the 5700 block of School Street NE in Bremerton at about 6:44 p.m. Monday. Upon arrival, firefighters observed heavy smoke coming from a motorhome parked under the carport of a single family home. A neighbor was using a garden hose on flames coming from one of the motorhome’s windows. The fire was quickly extinguished and damage was contained to the motorhome. The homeowners were not home at the time, but returned while crews were on scene. According to CKFR spokesperson Ileana LiMarzi, a neighbor saw flames coming from the motorhome as

she was leaving her house. She alerted another neighbor who was outside and together they opened the garage and retrieved a garden hose. The neighbor, Augie Lujan, kept water on the fire until crews arrived. Lujan stated heavy flames were coming from the window. The County Fire Marshal was called to the scene and determined that the cause was electrical. “If the two neighbors had not been observant and acted quickly the fire could have been much more serious with extension to the carport overhang and to the home itself,” LiMarzi said. CKFR had two engines and one medic unit respond. The Bremerton Fire Department also assisted with an engine and medic unit.

St. Patrick’s Day patrols dedicated to killed teen The Kitsap County “Target Zero” traffic safety task force is reminding drivers not to get behind the wheel if they’ve been drinking over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Extra patrols will be ongoing March 15–17, where local law enforcement agencies will be actively looking for impaired drivers. “Whether you’re gathering with friends at a local bar, or a private party, if alcohol is part of the festivities, following a simple plan will save you a lot of headaches,” said Marsha Masters, a Kitsap County Target Zero manager. Officials note that a DUI arrest is not the worst that can happen, you could be charged with vehicular homicide or vehicular assault if someone is killed or injured while you were driving impaired.

Lennon and his two passengers were returning home from roller-skating when an impaired driver, traveling the wrong way on State Highway 16, struck them head-on. His two friends were severely injured. Lennon was killed. Lennon was 18 years-old, an Eagle Scout, an exchange student to Germany and a Boy Scout counselor at Camp Parsons. His acceptance letter to the University of Puget Sound arrived the day after he was killed. He was never to become what he dreamed of doing. The upcoming St. Patrick’s Day weekend emphasis patrols are dedicated to the memory of Lennon. “His sister and I have missed him every day for 22 years,” said his mother, Loie Lennon.

It was a different time, admits State Rep. Norm Johnson. When Vietnam Veterans returned from war, there were no parades. No streets lined with folks waving American flags. No confetti and no “Welcome Home” from patriotic citizens. But there is still time to make up for that. That’s why Johnson introduced House Bill 1319 last month, and the House unanimously approved it making March 30 “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day” every year throughout Washington state. The State Senate now has the measure and has referred it to its Governmental Operations Committee for study. It is expected to pass the Senate before mid March, according to State Sen. Pam Roach, chairman of the committee. Johnson said he introduced the bill after Gil Calac, a constituent in his Yakima-area district, suggested a day for Vietnam Veterans. “We need to realize that these young men and women who were called to go to Vietnam didn’t go because they necessarily wanted to go,” Johnson said. “They went to serve this great nation of ours.” Calac, a Vietnam Veteran himself,

they will carry in the flags to the House and Senate chambers. Following a short ceremony, veterans and family members will gather at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the Statehouse grounds. There will be a pow wow drum ceremony and a circle of life will be formed by the religious leaders who are on hand. Calac is hoping to have pins and ribbons for all Vietnam Veterans to wear. While it’s not a “Welcome Home” parade, Calac thinks it will go a long way to heal old wounds. “The treatment we received when we came home still haunts us,” he said. He served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970 and received a Bronze Star. “We need this to help us move on.” Johnson agreed. “The way the Vietnam Veterans were treated when they came home is something that, today, we know was wrong,” he said. “I’ve heard horror stories about people yelling at them that they were baby killers. “It was a very different time then. But now it’s time to thank them for their service and honor them once a year with their own day.” More information about the Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home events is available online from the Washington State Veterans Affairs office at www.

37 years with BPD, left him a solid department and a good foundation for moving forward. And Strachan said that a big part of moving ahead will be developing a business plan for the department with input from residents and business people, something he’s done elsewhere. He said that plan will “sort of set the course for us for what we want to look like in five years.” Strachan said that in his 26 years as a policemen, he’s noticed that departments are often reactive rather proactive. “We react to the economy, we react to the media and we react to politics,” he said. “Sometimes that’s because we’re not being very deliberate about what it is we want to look like. It’s the same reason a business sets up a business plan. We should do the same thing. So, to build a plan that is meaningful and achievable and is simple and understandable is something that if you look at my past work is something I feel strongly about. So I intend to do that here, too.” He has three primary roles as police chief, Strachan said. As a CEO, he sets the plan and puts

systems in place to hold people accountable. As a coach, he serves as a mentor who is learning and responding to changes and helping other to do the same. As a cheerleader, he makes sure the department celebrates success internally, but also outside the department as well. “That doesn’t mean when we do something wrong you don’t acknowledge that you’ve made a mistake as an organization,” he said. “But, the fact is this is a group of people that do a really good job day-in and day-out and I want to make sure we remain focused on that. The cheerleader element is not only something I think is important, but I also really enjoy it.” As with police departments anywhere, Strachan said that funding levels will continue to be an issue. “As the economy improves… it’s not bouncing back, (but) it’s slowly improving,” Strachan said. “So, I don’t view this as we’re in a dip and we’re going to go right back up and be staffed like we were always staffed. This is a department that has the staff we have based on the resources available. Would I like more? Sure, of course I would.” Strachan said he will plan and lead the department while being realistic about resources.

Legal Notices SUPERIOR COURT OF WASIllNGTON FOR KITSAP COUNTY Estate of Mildred Ila Wheeler, Deceased. NO. 13 4 00102 0 PROBATE NOTICE TO CREDITORS (RCW 11.40.030) PLEASE TAKE NOTICE The above Court has appointed me as Personal Representative of Decedent’s estate. Any person having a claim against the Decedent must present the claim: (a) Before the time when the claim would be barred by any applicable statute of limitations, and (b) In the manner provided in RCW 11.40.070: (i) By filing the original of the claim with the foregoing

Court, and (ii) By serving on or mailing to me at the address below a copy of the claim. The claim must be presented by the later of: (a) Thirty (30) days after I served or mailed this Notice as provided in RCW 11.40.020(I)(c), or (b) Four (4) months after the date of first publication of this Notice. If the claim is not presented within this time period, the claim will be forever barred except as provided in RCW 11.40.051 and 11.40.060. This bar is effective for claims against both the Decedent’s probate and nonprobate assets. Date of First Publication of this Notice: February 22, 2013 Gary M. Wheeler,

“It doesn’t mean I won’t ask for more people and fight for it,” he said. “But I never thought in my career I’d see cops getting laid off and we’ve seen a lot get laid off.” The good news is that four new officers are coming out of the academy to replace outgoing or retiring BPD staff, he said. “As we get some of those (officers) back in we can’t say, ‘Okay, lets do it the way we’ve always done it.’ We have to think about how we deploy our officers and our staff in a way that is going to be thoughtful,” he said. A big part of that involves what is called “Intelligence Led Policing,” where officers use data to be more proactive rather than simply responding to calls and investigating crimes. Often the data is driven by geography or certain individuals known to law enforcement. “Intel ligence Led Policing is a euphemism for where you need to be and where you need to focus your resources. That’s all it is,” Strachan said. “As a profession we’re going this direction, where we start to leverage the things we do so it reduces crime to a greater extent than by just reacting all the time.” That effort, to get out ahead of crime before it occurs, is similar, of course, to Strachan’s approach to being the CEO, coach and cheerleader of an organization and profession trying to do more with less. “That’s where we are right now in this business,” he said. “Getting over (the), ‘Oh, that’s the way we do it because that’s the way it’s always been done.’ We don’t have the resources and frankly the public is expecting more of us. So, we need to get over it and move on.”

ing to work. “I think it’s ridiculous,” Wildes said of sequestration. “We elect Congress to represent us and they represent themselves. I don’t blame him (Kilmer), though, he’s new.” Kilmer said workers biggest concerns Friday morning had to do with furloughs. “What I was really impressed by, was the number of people who expressed their concern for the broader community, small businesses here in Bremerton and throughout Kitsap County that will be impacted by this,” Kilmer said of his conversations with shipyard workers. Rick Williams, the longtime president of the 2,000-member Bremerton Metal Trades Council, said that furlough notices were set to go out Monday of this week.


The district is working to process applications for the remaining schools, Johnson said, but due to the nature of the process it could be a while before they see any result. Along with the changes to the main course, students are told at least half of their plate needs to contain fruits or vegetables. Crownhill assistant server Jessica Delgato hands out main courses, strategically placing herself after the salad bar so she can check students’ plates for fruits and vegetables. If a child comes to her with only two baby carrots on his tray, as happened on Friday, she’ll politely direct him back to the salad bar to get more. For the most part, though, Delgato said, the kids are good about picking enough

“It’s a notice to tell people there is the potential for furlough,” Williams said. Williams said workers will be furloughed one day a week between April and September and essentially “no one will be spared.” “We’ve got some things that have got to run 24 hours a day so I believe some of those people could be exempt,” he said. Overall, Williams is disappointed and frustrated. “I think Congress should have done what they were supposed to do,” he said. “They should do their jobs and right now I don’t think they’re doing their jobs and it’s impacting every employee out here. It’s huge. People really can’t afford furlough.” Congress also has another deadline, March 27, to pass an appropriations bill. If that doesn’t happen, the Navy is projecting another $4.6 billion shortfall above and beyond the hit felt by sequestration.

Kilmer also noted that one study by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office says there could be up to 2 million job losses, mostly in the small business sector, as a result of sequestration. Congress also has another deadline, March 27, to pass an actual appropriations bill rather than operating under a continuing resolution. If that continuing resolution is extended yet again, the Navy is projecting another $4.6 billion shortfall above and beyond the hit felt by sequestration. “Most of us would rather see an actual budget and long term spending plan so that the shipyard and every federal agency can do some planning,” Kilmer said. “Whether that’s gonna happen, I think is still up in the air. It’s gonna depend on rather than doing a bunch of finger pointing and game playing, it’s going to take everybody in our nation’s capital actually working together.”

fruits and veggies. That student was the only one the entire lunch in first, second or third grade she had to sent back through. The changes take place over time. When the USDA released its new standards in 2011, Crownhill principal Jill Carlson said there was a bit of grumbling among the fifthgraders. For the most part, though, Carlson said the kids have no issue with the healthier lunches. That acceptance may be due in large part to the work of Johnson and her staff. Johnson said they walk a fine line making food better for the students while at the same time trying to keep up the taste. “It’s not nutrition if it ends up in the garbage,” she said. “If we can provide nutrition education and be role models and provide healthy habits then the students will make those changes for them-

selves.” Some of those changes have to take place over time, she said, or the difference might be too noticeable. “We’ve made so many changes,” Johnson said, “but sodium is one of those changes that you need to do a little every year so kids get used to it over time.” The school district is in the process of creating a new central kitchen at the Wheaton Way Bremerton Youth Wellness Campus. Once in its new location, Johnson said the nutrition services department will be able to look forward to serving Bremerton in the coming decades. But right now the focus is on the present. Even though schools have won bronze and silver awards, there’s plenty more work to be done. “We need to introduce more whole grains,” Johnson said, “and reduce the fat in many of our products.”

Disaster relief partnership announced

U.S. Bank and the American Red Cross have announced a new partnership that will provide disaster preparedness funding, opportunities for customer contributions, and increased employee volunteer opportunities. The partnership includes a number of important components, including: An annual commitment of $250,000 from U.S. Bank that will help the Red Cross prepare for vital disaster services; and the opportunity for customers in local markets to contribute at designated U.S. Bank ATMs when disaster strikes their community or region. In connection with National American Red Cross month in March, U.S. Bank will kick off Employee Awareness and Preparedness Fairs for the bank’s 65,000 employees across the nation. Fairs will take place throughout the year. In addition, U.S. Bank will work closely with the Red Cross to provide opportunities for employees to donate blood and volunteer time to the charity. “This exciting new partnership extends U.S. Bank support of American Red Cross disaster relief efforts to new levels,” said Richard Davis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of U.S. Bancorp, the parent company of U.S. Bank. “Over the years, U.S. Bank has supported the Red Cross through disaster relief grants. Our new commitment of $250,000 annually along with our ATM initiative will ensure that our customers and employees can more readily support the cities and towns affected by disasters.” Red Cross officials also expressed their excitement at the partnership. “The Red Cross is thrilled to be expanding our partnership with U.S. Bank,” said Neal Litvack, chief development officer for the American Red Cross. “The generosity of U.S. Bank and its employees and customers will help the Red Cross provide immediate, essential assistance to disaster victims, and so many others who depend on the Red Cross for help.” The local American Red Cross office is at 811 Pacific Ave. in Bremerton.

Kitsap Regional Library now offering digital magazines Kitsap Regional Library patrons now have unlimited access to more than 100 digital magazine titles, cover to cover with no waiting, said Jeff Brody, KRL’s director of community relations. Popular titles such as Newsweek, Consumer Reports, National Geographic, and Popular Photography, are being provided through KRL’s subscription to Zinio, available through one of KRL’s vendors. Kitsap County library card holders can pick up issues of their favorite magazines at the KRL Digital Magazine Website each month and view them on their computers, tablets or phones.

Digital magazines are best enjoyed on LCD devices that are designed to view full color images like Kindle Fires, iPads, Android tablets, laptops or desktop computers, Brody said. Basic Kindles, Nooks, Kobos and other devices with gray scale (e-Ink) screens are not optimized for this type of

content. If patrons want to browse magazines on their computer they do not require any additional software. They can use any internet browser like Safari, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Firefox. If patrons want to read magazines offline they will

want to download free applications available online for Apple devices, Droid devices, Kindles and Blackberrys. There are links to find these APPs on the KRL Digital Magazine Website. KRL’s Zinio subscription allows as many patrons as desire to see the same maga-

zine at the same time. There’s no waiting for a copy to become available. The copy of the magazine remains on a patron’s device for as long as it is needed. And patrons can sign up to be notified by e-mail any time a new issue of a magazine they are “subscribed” to becomes avail-

able. Sharon Grant, KRL’s Digital Branch Manager, said she is excited to be able to add this service to the library system’s digital collection. Patrons can access the downloadable magazine collection at http://rbdg. zinio.

A good representation, indeed. Harlow said he wanted the sculpture to be lifelike, but not too threatening. “They can be scary things when they’re after prey,” he said of octopi. So Harlow said he let Gale take “a little poetic license” to make the octopus sculpture appear friendly. The crease between the octopus’ body

Continued from page 2 The science center is operated by the nonprofit Poulsbo Marine Science Center Foundation and occupies a downtown waterfront building owned by the city; Sealaska Environmental Services has offices upstairs. The science center has an aquarium, touch tank, classrooms, theater, and a floating lab with underwater camera. The science center provides marine science education for children from four area school districts; Harlow estimates 1,000 to 1,500 elementary and middle school students visit the science center each year. “It introduces them to the wonders of the saltwater environment,” Harlow said. Inspiration to become good stewards of the marine environment “is a side benefit of what the children get.” In addition, the science center is open to the public without charge. The aquarium is periodically home to an octopus from Liberty Bay. A young octopus is kept there for three to six months, then released to the bay and replaced by a new octopus. Mus said he planned to go out March 9 and find a new resident octopus for the aquarium.

Raises city’s profile as a public art center The octopus sculpture contributes to the City of Poulsbo’s growing portfolio of public art. In addition to the octopus, there’s the 12-foot Norseman sculpture on Viking Avenue and Lindvig Way; a Viking sculpture at Waterfront Park dedicated in honor of Poulsbo mayor Maurice

bolic of the community, it’s a symbol of who we are. It’s a branding mechanism as well. We are doing a lot of Norwegian kind of things, and it helps foster that brand of Poulsbo’s Scandivanian heritage.” On that note, we should point out that “octopus” in Norwegian is “blekksprut.” — Richard Walker is editor of the North Kitsap Herald, a Sound Publishing Co. newspaper.

Gluten-free food has gone to the dogs Y

up! My pup, Mac, is officially gluten-free! I have discovered some wonderful glutenfree dog foods at one of my favorite places on Bainbridge Island — Bay Hay & Feed. March 1 was Mac’s birthday, so I made him a special gluten-free birthday breakfast using Wellness Simple Dog Food. (Follow @Mac_a_ Doodlebug on Twitter to send him birthday wishes.) Let’s just say that Mac has a sophisticated palate and prefers only the finest ingredients. He is a happier dog living his gluten-free and chicken- and egg-free lifestyle. It turns out that it was the chicken and eggs that made him itchy, and gave him an upset stomach

This is really great for me too because every time I fed him or gave him a treat I had to wash my hands really well because most dog foods and treats contain wheat, barley and oats.

Dacon brings Rhône Valley to Olympic Peninsula O

ftentimes, the journey is the reward when touring wine country. Take, for instance, Walter Dacon Wines near Shelton. The southern end of the Olympic Peninsula is not classic wine country (though the state’s first bonded winery after Prohibition began on Stretch Island, not far away). Walter Dacon, run by Lloyd and Ann Anderson, launched in 2005 with the release of the 2003 vintage. The Andersons focus almost exclusively on Syrah, using grapes from some of the top vineyards east of the Cascades, including Boushey near Grandview, Williams on Red Mountain and Elephant Mountain not far from Zillah. The Andersons named the winery after Walter Dacon, who was Lloyd’s grandfather. Lloyd, who handles the winemaking, was born in California. His father was in the military, so he lived all over the world as a child. After earning a forestry degree from University of California in Berkeley, he moved to Washington to work for Weyerhaeuser. He left the company in 1981 to start a consulting business. After the Andersons took up home winemaking as a hobby, they were encouraged by friends to turn it into a business. When the Andersons launched Walter Dacon, Syrah was Washington’s hot, up-and-coming variety. In the past few years, though, interest in the red Rhône variety has waned a bit. However, the Andersons have seen no lack of enthusiasm for their wines and have had little difficulty selling their 2,000 cases each year. They make five Syrahs: The “C’est Syrah Belle” is aged in French oak; the “C’est Syrah Beaux” is aged in American oak; the “C’est Syrah Magnifique” is a reserve-level wine; the “Appenage” is a vineyarddesignated wine from Boushey and available primarily to wine club members; and the “Vin a Dessert” is a fortified Syrah. The Andersons also make a Syrah-based blend called “Skookum Red.” It’s named after the Chinook word for “good.” And the Andersons live on Little

Skookum Inlet. “Everything around here is named ‘skookum,’” Anderson said with a laugh. Though the Andersons typically have to drive 10 hours round trip to bring their grapes home from the Columbia Valley, they enjoy being on the peninsula, just 20 minutes from Olympia. “It’s pretty obscure here on the peninsula,” Lloyd said, adding with a smile, “But we call Shelton the Syrah capital of the world!” In fact, a bit of a wine

This is Walter Dacon’s least-expensive bottling and one of the only wines that includes grapes other than Syrah. In fact, it is a blend of Syrah, Sangiovese and Grenache. It offers aromas of black cherry, cedar, cardamom and dark chocolate, followed by bold flavors of ripe dark fruit, black pepper and succulent spices.

The site was previously two properties owned by Harrison Medical Center and Olympic Property Group. Olympic Property Group relocated to the Union Bank Building, which it owns, in downtown Poulsbo.
