Foster parents dedicated to helping children By Michelle Beahm

Phil and Kathleen Nenninger have always loved kids and have spent their lives being involved in everything their three children, ages 17,

21, and 23, have done from coaching sports to volunteering their time. But even with their children almost grown, their house is still full of young children. Phil and Kathleen are foster parents.

Lynch addressed the crowd, which included the elementary school’s students, staff, parents and community members. “Students, you’ve got a lot to look forward to,”

he said. The new Jackson Park will be a two story, 60,000 square foot building with 24 classrooms — big enough to hold

“It’s by far the most rewarding thing you’ll ever do,” Phil, 48, said. “I’ve been active in our kids’ lives. (I’ve) been a Pee-Wee president. Kathleen’s run concessions. We’ve volunteered and been involved in just about anything our kids do. But by far, the most rewarding thing … every night we go to bed and they are clothed, in a clean environment, fed well.” The couple has fostered more than 20 children and currently have four in their household, three are under 5 years old, and one is 19 years old and signed herself into the “Foster Care to 21”

program at 18 to continue to get support from the state while she goes to college in Spokane. The Nenningers decided to become foster parents more than five years ago when their church pastor’s wife held an informational class. Kathleen, 46, recalled that the woman said that if you’ve ever considered doing it “someday,” then there is no “someday” and to do it now. Since the Nenningers had considered doing it “someday,” they took her advice. They included their own



W hen Brit ta ny Minder showed up on prom night she was just as excited as any other 17-year-old student at the biggest school dance of the year. That excitement quickly faded, however, when she was denied entry to the dance. Central Kitsap High School administrators stopped Brittany outside for showing too much cleavage. She was eventually admitted on the provision she cover up with a shawl, but she left after only an hour. “It wasn’t a good experience for me,” Brittany said. “I didn’t want to stay there if I was feeling miserable.” In Brittany’s account of the story, she said a female administrator stopped her and asked

Brittany Minder her to pull up the dress because she had too much cleavage exposed. Brittany said she complied with the request and it seemed the female administrator was going to let her in as long as she kept the bodice pulled up. But then a male administrator told her she wouldn’t be allowed in See MINDER, A13

The Silverdale Rotary Club recently honored Students of the Month from Central Kitsap High School, Klahowya Secondary School and Crosspoint Academy. Each student being honored received limousine service

from school to the Silverdale Beach Hotel, a luncheon in their honor, a certificate of achievement, a copy of the Rotary Four-Way Test, and a copy of the book, “Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens.”

Each quarter, the Silverdale Rotary Club also honors local Sailors and Marines. On May 23, exemplary Sailors and Marines from the Marine Corps Security Force Battalion at Bangor and the USS

CONNECTICUT (SSN-22) were honored. These men and women are chosen from a large pool of candidates, and their level of achievement in outstand-

ing service to our country as well as community involvement is truly astonishing, a Rotary statement said. Rotarians said it was particularly timely to honor

our Sailors and Marines just days before Memorial Day, a time when we are all reminded of the sacrifices of so many who have gone before.

The one-of-a-kind originals came to life somewhere between their body parts and fashion accessories, Martine said.

Materials are generally reclaimed and repurposed and often include found or natural items.

Georgia’s House

Georgia’s House, a homeless shelter, received a $300 donation recently. The shelter, located off Auto Center Way in Bremerton, helps homeless and displaced women and children, as well as women who have suffered from domestic violence. Volunteers staff the shelter 24/7. The building has five bedrooms, four of which are for individual families and one is a large dorm for single women. The women who stay there are referred to Georgia’s House by non-profit agencies in Kitsap County. The donation was presented by the Silverdale Seabeck Republican Women (SSRW) as part of their Community Outreach program. SSRW plans to continue supporting Georgia’s House through donations, time and financial aid. Georgia’s House is operated by The Weaver Foundation, founded in memory of a philanthropist named Georgia Mattson. The foundation and shelter’s main mission is to provide shelter and everyday support to women trying to overcome their homeless circumstances.

Bremerton downtown needs more than trees In Our Opinion

To tree or not to tree. That seems to be the question in downtown Bremerton these days. There’s concern along Fourth Street that flowering pear trees planted some 20 years ago have outlived there usefulness and now are nothing but a nuisance. Some people think the trees are in the way because they’ve grown so big that their foliage blocks storefronts and signs. And those folks are concerned that the trees have such mature roots that sidewalks will be pushed up and cracked, creating a public safety hazard. They say these trees make the street dark and littered with leaves, creating an unfriendly pedestrian walkway — the very opposite thing from what they were planted to do. It was in the 1990s when officials decided to create a streetscape on Fourth between Pacific and Washington, with one-way traffic, spacious sidewalks, lamp-style streetlights, a fountain, benches and trees. Now those 13 trees may have outlived their usefulness. People on the other side of the debate say the trees are not the problem on Fourth Street. Supporters of the trees say the block’s biggest problems have to do with empty storefronts in need of care. They say there’s just not much to see on Fourth and that’s why shoppers, tourists and others don’t go there. They also say that Bremerton, as a “Tree City USA,” can’t cut down its trees in good conscience. Leaders need to realize that the trees are not the issue. They need to make a decision about the trees and take action. And then they need to move on to creating a plan that will bring some new life to the area. They should take a cue from the Port of Bremerton, which has finally put a plan in place to bring new life to the Bremerton Marina. Piggyback on their action and get going on bringing new businesses to the block. With its proximity to the Kitsap Convention Center, the waterfront and the ferry dock, Fourth Street is a natural for a great place to walk and shop. Find some new neighbors for the Kitsap Historical Society and Museum and re-think the traffic flow on that block. Offer some tax incentives to locate on the block. And make it the place it was envisioned to be 20 years ago.

Youth mental health first aid training offered By Kristine Welch

One in five families are affected by serious emotional disturbances or mental illnesses, and among youth, one in 10 youth has serious mental health problems that are severe enough to impair how they function at home, school, or in the community. In response to the need to better address a young person’s mental health issues in communities everywhere, a nationally acclaimed Youth Mental Health First Aid training course is now available in Kitsap County for adults who work with young people ages 12 to 18. Five years ago, select KMHS staff became cer-

tified to train a Mental Health First Aid Course geared toward adult concerns, and have since provided trainings that have prepared nearly 500 Kitsap area citizens to recognize, provide support and secure assistance for an adult in need of assistance. This year, a similar course designed to address youth mental health concerns has been made available for the public, and KMHS staff have received certification to deliver the eight hour course locally. Youth Mental Health First Aid educates adults such as school staff, coaches, youth workers and volunteers about how to provide help to a young person experiencing a mental health challenge, mental

Kristine Welch disorder, or mental health crisis. The course does not teach how to diagnose or to provide treatment but instead, like CPR training helps a non-medical professional assist an indi-

vidual following a heart attack, Youth Mental Health First Aid training helps an individual who does not have clinical training assist someone experiencing mental health issues until appropriate help is received or until a crisis resolves. Youth Mental Health First Aiders learn to assess a situation and respond to signs of mental health concerns, such as helping a person through a panic attack, or talking with someone who is anxious, depressed or possibly considering suicide. The course teaches a 5-step process to assess a situation, select and implement appropriate interventions and help an individual connect with

appropriate care. Participants are reminded that adolescence is a time of growth and change and has many stressors inherent in that development. They learn how to identify when typical development moves towards a mental health issue. Participants also learn helpful strategies for approaching and intervening with youth regardless of what the issues presenting are, whether ADD/ ADHD, anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders or substance use disorders. Participants engage in activities that build understanding of the impact of illness, and learn to assess for risk of suicide or harm,

practicing the method rather than just learning about it, making it easier to actually apply the knowledge in a real-life situation. Courses are scheduled in July and August for school faculty and personnel, and additional courses will take place this fall for the community.

Relay for Life returns to central Kitsap County By Leslie Kelly

Contributed Photo

The “Our Gang Raytheon” team has been participating in the Relay for Life for 18 years, earning funds for the American Cancer Society’s work to cure cancer.

Most credit cards exist to make their issuer money. Ours is different. We are owned by our members. And as a financial co-op, we make decisions that are best for our members.

A Card That’s Different

no annual fee no teaser rate no cash advance fee no balance transfer fee

Just like every year since 2001, Central Kitsap and Bremerton will come together to participate in the 2013 Relay For Life, sponsored by the American Cancer Society. “We’ve had a strong relay in Central Kitsap for years,” said Eric Rock, community relationship manager for the Great West Division of the American Cancer Society, headquartered in Tacoma. In past years, there have been more than 100 teams and more than 1,000 participants in the Relay for Life which will be June 29 and 30 this year. To date, for this year’s relay, there are 53 teams registered with more than 500 participants and they have already raised $44,178 in pledges. One of those teams is the “Our Gang Raytheon” team, which has been participating in the relay for 18 years. Carol Sakavich, an administrative partner at the Torpedo and Readiness Center at Keyport, has taken part in all but the first year. “We have a lot of dedicated people on this team,” she said. “Both employees and retirees take part.” Most years they have from 10 to 15 people on their team who take turns walking the track for the 18 hour relay. They not only walk in the relay, but they also fund raise for weeks in advance of the event. From book sales to potlucks to a spaghetti feed, they work as a team. “Some years we have chili cook-offs and we get prizes donated and have opportunity drawings for those prizes,” she said. Everything in those events, right down to the

paper plates and plastic forks, is donated so that any funds raised can be donated to the relay. Sakavich’s participation is personal. “My mother had cancer three times and beat it every time,” she said. “So many families have battled it and I just don’t want anymore to have cancer. That’s why I participate. I know that the money raised will go for research and hopefully a cure.” Most of the team members have known friends and family who have battled cancers of all kinds, she said. “Some won the battle and some didn’t,” she said. The team has sometimes dedicated their participation to personal friends or family, including former employees at Raytheon. Sakavich also gave credit to her employer for some of the team’s success. “They can’t sponsor us,” she said. “But they allow us to have events in the workplace and they are supportive of what we’re doing.” Last year, the group raised $10,000. This year, they hope to meet their goal of $15,000. “We have an anonymous donor who’s given us a $3,000 pledge,” she said. “And we’ve raised $1,800. So we’re betting we’ll get there.” In the team’s 17 years of participating, Our Gang Raytheon has raised $142,234, she added. The relay will be at Olympic High School, in the Silverdale Stadium at 7070 Stampede Blvd., Silverdale. The relay begins at 6 p.m. on Friday and continues through noon on Saturday. Rock said originally there were two relays in Central Kitsap, one in Silverdale

and one in Bremerton. In more recent years the two merged into one that is held in Silverdale. “It’s still the traditional Relay for Life,” he said. “But this year, there’s new people in charge and there’s new life. We have some fresh faces and some fresh ideas.” Relay for Life was started in May 1985. Dr. Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma colorectal surgeon, spent 24 hours circling the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound to show support for his patients who battled cancer. Through the support of his friends, family and patients, he raised $27,000 that year to fight cancer. The relay includes teams of people who walk around the track continually from 6 p.m. to noon the following day. Each team must keep a member on the track throughout the relay. Members get pledges from friends and family for the time they will walk the track. It is the largest fundraising campaign that the American Cancer society does annually, Rock said. “There’s no doubt that it has grown over the years,” he said. “And certainly people become involved because they have a friend or family member or a coworker who has been affected by cancer.” One of the highlights of the relay is the luminaries where paper bags with candles are places around the track and are lit when darkness falls. The bags are decorated in honor of cancer victims and cancer survivors. There also is a lap to honor survivors where honored guests who have survived cancer walk the track to show their courage and strength. The event raises awareness of cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and support, Rock said. Business groups, clubs, families, friends, hospitals, faith-based groups, schools and service organizations are encouraged to form teams and register for the relay. But for Sakavich, this year’s relay will be a bit different. “I broke my foot so I’m in this big leg boot,” she said. “I can’t walk the track, but I’ll be there cheering them on.” More information is available at www.

Speaking with students Olympic High School Valedictorian

As graduation rapidly approaches, we’re sitting down with local students to discuss their time in central Kitsap, their studies and their future plans. Look online and in next week’s paper for more interviews. This week we spoke with Yoon Jung Kim, the valedictorian for Olympic High School’s graduating class of 2013. While we know we wouldn’t want our high school grade point averages printed in a newspaper, Kim will be graduating from Olympic with the impressive GPA of 3.97. She attributes the barely perceptible drop from perfection to one or two A- grades. And while these numbers seem impressive enough on their own, Kim achieved her GPA while taking a number of AP classes. This year she is enrolled in four: AP Calculus, AP Physics, AP Literature and AP Psychology. Here are some of the things we talked with her about.

Do you have to give a speech at graduation?

front of all the parents and everything.”

“Yeah, I’m really nervous. I’m not really good at speaking in front of people.”

How does it feel to be graduating? Are things winding down?

Have you thought about what you’re going to say?

“I’m very excited … After the AP tests, all my classes we just do nothing now.”

“I thought a lot but I still don’t have my speech yet. It’s kind of floating around. “I know I want to say something inspirational and I’m just not sure what to say yet.” When did you hear you were valedictorian?

“I think it was toward the very end-ish of May.” Was your goal ever to be valedictorian?

“Nope. Everyone would tell me that I’m going to be valedictorian but I kept denying it. I really wanted to be salutatorian kind of — so I wouldn’t have to make a speech. But I’m still happy about it, I guess.” Do you know who the salutatorian is? Have you talked to them at all?

“Yeah, there’s three. One of them is one of my close friends.” Have you told her that you envy her?

“(Laughs) Yeah, they kind of have to make a small speech just in front of the seniors, but they don’t have to talk in

When were the AP tests?

“It was in the middle of May.” Do you think Olympic has good Ap offerings?

“I think they do, but I wish more people took them because I couldn’t take AP Chemisty this year because it was only one period and I couldn’t fit it into my schedule. I really wanted to. (If more people had signed up) there probably would have been more periods, so more availability.” College plans?

“I’m actually really excited to be going to UW soon … My older sister went there and it really made me want to go.” Any idea what you want to study?

“I kind of wanted to be a surgeon but I feel like that’s too much medical school so I’m still thinking.” What specialty would you take as a surgeon?

“Cardio. (There’s) just something about surgeries, it looks really fun to me. I’m

Any memorable moments from your time at Olympic?

“Well ...(laughs) I don’t really care for the English classes. I’m really bad at English.”

Q/A | Yoon Jung Kim

“I really liked the spirit weeks this year — because my class, we’re extremely spirited. So one of the assemblies we got in trouble by the principal because we were so out of control. “We were coming off the bleachers and we were cheering for our classmates during a game and then the other juniors started copying and I guess we were setting a bad example. It was pretty funny. We were going crazy.”

But you took AP Lit, anyway?

Yeah. It’s really hard for me to analyze. I just don’t understand it. I like writing essays, though. More into the math and science side of things?

“Yeah. I like numbers.” Have you heard that ninth graders are moving up to the high school?

not scared of blood.” Did you participate in any extra-curricular activities?

I was in Key Club, Honor Society and Knowledge Bowl. How did you like Knowledge Bowl?

It’s really fun. I don’t really feel that smart in it though because so many other people are really good.

“Yeah. I’m so glad I won’t be here for that. I feel like it will be way too crowded in the hallways. It’s already crowded.”

That’s kind of the point of spirit week, though, right?

“(Laughs) Yeah, but I guess we were going overboard.”

As a student would you want to be included in that kind of decision?

Anyone you want to thank as you leave?

“I would definitely want to be involved in that. I don’t like it when they make big changes.”

“Mr. Peck. He was my sports medicine teacher ... Mr. Emans (yearbook). He made me feel like a leader.”

Any sports?

No. I’m not really athletic. I did sports medicine for them, though. It’s a class but we also do it outisde of school. Like, during the practices we have to attend and treat them and stuff. “I really liked that. I think sports med was my favorite class. I took beginners last year and then this year I took the advanced.” If you were in charge, is there anything you would want to add at Olympic?

“I heard other schools have an anatomy class. I think that would be cool to have.” Anything you could do without?

Pumas unveil new stadium at home-opener By WES MORROW

Kitsap County’s local soccer club debuted a new stadium this weekend for the first home game of its season. In a short ceremony prior to Saturday’s match, County Commissioners Rob Gelder and Charlotte Garrido addressed the crowd and Miss West Sound, Megan Leibold, sang the National Anthem. In her address, Commissioner Garrido professed to being a Pumas fan since the team moved to the area four years ago. She closed her short speech with a shout of “Allez Pumas,” the team’s rallying cry, which means “Go Pumas.” The Kitsap Pumas are a member of the United Soccer League’s Professional Development League, referred to as PDL. The PDL is the fourth tier


in the USL system. The Pumas transferred to Kitsap following the franchise’s former life as the USL Seattle Sounders, which is now one of 19 teams in Major League Soccer — the top tier of soccer in the United States. The Pumas have been playing in Kitsap since 2009. Until this season, the team played home games at Bremerton Memorial Stadium, the home field of Bremerton High School. Kitsap County Parks and Recreation and the Pumas came to an agreement this spring to make Gordon Field the team’s new home location. Gordon Field stands on the western end of the Kitsap Fairgrounds. In 2011, the grass field was updated to synthetic turf and stadium lighting was added. Kitsap Parks and Recreation plans to update the second field at the fair-

off Saturday for the Pumas first home game of the 2013 season. The Pumas took on the Portland Timbers’ U23 squad in their sixth game. Match Report Going into the game Kitsap was 1-2-2, the team’s only win coming on May 18 against Washington Crossfire. Things started off evenly in the first half, with neither team appearing to control a large majority of ball possession. The first real chance of the game came about halfway into the first half on a Pumas foray into the offensive third. The ball fell at the feet of a Pumas player just past the penalty spot. From his position inside the box only the goal-keeper stood in his way, but he failed to test Timbers’ keeper David Meves as the shot skipped wide to the left. The Timbers answered back a few minutes later with an opportunity of their own. Midfielder Jose Ribas received the ball in from the edge of the box and had what appeared to be a sure goal — but he put more power than accuracy into his shot and it sailed just left of the goal. Both teams, missing their opportunities wide left, went into the half scoreless. There was a scary moment for both teams

Supporter Aaron Riner cheers on young fans flying the colors. when two players collided heads going up for the ball. The Timbers’ player appeared to momentarily lose consciousness, but was able after several minutes to leave the field on his own feet. He would not return to the game. The electricity in the stadium and on the field seemed to pick up late in the second half as players and fans looked for a break in the draw. It looked as though the Pumas might pull ahead late in the game when Will Daniels blew past the Timbers’ left defender. Daniels forced Meves to come out of his goal and miss a dive for the ball. With nothing but the goal in front of him, Daniels was stopped on a questionable play by a Timbers defender, who forced Daniels off the ball in the box.

Pumas fans roared their disapproval, calling for a penalty kick but the referee refused to blow his whistle. The Pumas would continue to push aggressively, but would not get as good of a chance again. The game ended in a 0-0 draw. The Timbers (4-0-1) retained first place in the Northwest Division with 13 points following the draw. Their next match will take place Wednesday, June 5 in Redmond against Washington Crossfire. The Pumas (1-2-3) sit in fourth place with six points. After starting the first five games of the season on the road, they will play their next two games at home. They are set to play again on Saturday, June 8, at Gordon Field against the Vancouver Whitecaps PDL team.

Sweeney’s is a smoking success in Brownsville By KEVAN MOORE

Barbara and Mark Sweeney laugh a lot at work. The high-school sweethearts have been married for 39 years and for 30 of those years they’ve owned and operated Sweeney’s Country Style Meats and Smoked Seafood on Burke Bay in Brownsville. The small shop is like a hidden treasure. While it may be slightly off the beaten path, it’s well worth the trip. They sell smoked pork chops, ham hocks, chickens, ham, bacon, elk, buffalo, fresh bologna, pickled herring, hot dogs and all kinds of sausages. They also sell casings for people that want to make their own sausage. In addition, they sell fresh meat and specialty prime steaks that are dry aged for 17 to 21 days. “A lot of places say they age their meat, but they really don’t,” Barbara said. “Ours is really good. It’s just so much more tender and flavorful. It just comes out really, really tender.” All of the fish comes from Alaska and there are no artificial flavors or colorings added for smoking. They also do custom smoking of all kinds for other people and stores. The going was tough in the early years, but they never gave up. “Yes, we were struggling,” Mark said. “We didn’t have two pennies to rub together for about five years. We didn’t take a vacation for 15, but it was worth it. Tenacity. We hung in there and stuck with it and it paid off. Thirty years later, here we are.” “It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long; it’s crazy,” Barbara added. Even when the Brownsville Highway washed out and roadblocks were set up preventing cus-

tomers from reaching the shop, the couple persevered. “We’re sitting out here with no traffic, no customers, no nothing,” Mark said. “I talked to the bank and said, ‘I’ll do what I can to pay the interest.’ We were rolling pennies to keep the lights on, literally. But we did it and weren’t giving up.” Their daughter, Trisha, was 1 and their son, Sean, was 7 when store first opened. Both would eventually put time in behind the counter and behind the scenes cutting and smoking meats. “Our daughter was working the counter on a milk crate and running the cash register at 9,” Mark said. “Now she’s an accountant, so go figure. I’m sure the child labor laws would kill me for doing something like that today.” “Sean was filleting fish at 12,” Barbara adds. “He was a cleanup boy, but he wanted to learn to do everything. So, we taught him how to filet fish, cut steaks and all kinds of stuff.” Prior to opening their meat shop, the couple owned Sweeney’s Tavern, which is now called the Fuzzy Naval, on Naval Avenue in downtown Bremerton. They designed all of their own menus and did their own cooking, too. When they sold the place, Mark was making his way to Poulsbo to scout out restaurant locations when a Realtor said it was a shame that he wasn’t a butcher. Mark, who worked in a market meat department at 16 and went on to get a union job as an apprentice in Port Angeles, learned that a pair of business partners had a falling out in Brownsville. One of them had taken all of the equipment and it had been nine months since the light bill was paid or a payment was

made to the bank which was ready to repossess it. “So, that got my attention,” Mark said. “Barbara had gone off shopping with her mom in Tacoma and when she got back, I said, ‘Guess what?’ She said, ‘How did it go?’ and I told her, ‘Well, we just bought a meat market.’ There was nothing here, just four walls, we just bought the property.” Mark has always had a passion for cooking, starting at a young age with his mom in their kitchen. “I learned how to cook eggs when I was in kindergarten,” he said. “Then I worked at the commissary when I was 11, 12 years old bagging groceries. You’re not making food, but your around it.” Just a few years later, he was learning how to butcher meat and has been learning and experimenting ever since. Early on after opening the market, Mark bought a premixed jerky seasoning. “It was this teeny-tiny pouch and I got the bill for it and about fell over backwards,” he said. “I tried it and it wasn’t very good. So I started experimenting with it and playing with it and landed on (my own recipe) which is just way better and isn’t costing me an arm and a leg.” He also had a rough start smoking salmon all those years ago. “The first batch of salmon I did I destroyed,” he said. “It was so salty, you couldn’t touch your tongue to it without burning it. And I was really mad because that salmon cost a lot of money. I had tears in my eyes that day. So, I

Now we get a lot of really, really good feedback on our salmon.” It’s a good thing that practice paid off, because one of the very first customers after opening the store was the late Ron Ross, a Silverdale icon and philanthropist who touched countless peoples’ lives before his death Sunday, May 26. Mark said Ross, who was the couple’s third or fourth customer after opening, had brought in some of his own salmon for smoking. Barbara didn’t know who Ross was at the time, but Mark recognized him right away and was terrified of screwing it up. Needless to say, though, Mark nailed it and Ross become a regular customer, friend and mentor. “We try to keep the quality very, very high,” Barbara

said. “If we wouldn’t eat it we wouldn’t sell it. That’s why we’ve been here this long, I guess.” Mark mixes all the seasonings himself and uses a mixture of dry and wet alder for smoking. The beef jerky is probably the store’s overall top seller. “As far as sausage goes, I’d say it’s our jalapeno cheddars,” Mark said. “I mean, we sell a ton of everything else, but those are probably our number one seller.” Mark and Barbara say that the biggest challenge to running their business is keeping up with rules and regulations enforced by the USDA, Dept. of Agriculture, the state and county.

“Thats why there are hardly any meat markets left because it’s very, very difficult to keep up with the paperwork and to keep all the inspectors straight,” Barbara said. “One says one thing and another says something else, so you kind of have to please them all. But it’s all worth it because at the end of the day you have a good quality product. When somebody comes back and says, ‘Oh my gosh, that was the best ever.’ It’s like, ‘Oh, I’m so glad you’re happy!’ ” “It’s still our passion,” Mark said. “We started with nothing and worked this thing. I don’t know if we own it, I think it owns us.”

Bremerton to celebrate National Marina Day Puget Sound boaters invited to attend festivities; get free moorage By Leslie Kelly

For the first time ever, the Bremerton Marina will participate in National Marina Day this Saturday. Joining the national celebration is a move to help market the marina which has had problems in recent years filling its slips. Bob Wise, who is under contract with the Port of Bremerton to bring 50 new tenants to the marina this summer, is spearheading the marina’s efforts to be a part of the marina day celebration. Wise, manager of Marsh Andersen of Bainbridge Island, was hired in April for $9,000 a month through the end of August. Wise brought the idea of Marina Day to port commissioners about a month ago. Commissioners supported participation at the Bremerton Marina including free overnight moorage. “The Bremerton Marina is a jewel of a facility,” said Tim Thomson, CEO of the Port of Bremerton. He said he expects to see from 100 to 150 boaters attend and 40 boats have already registered. “We want to show it off and can think of no better way than inviting all local boaters to come visit on a day devoted to celebrating boating nationwide,” he said. Port Commissioner Roger Zabinski agreed, and said he was excited to see the the port take part. “The Bremerton Marina is a beautiful facility,” he said. “It is the gateway to Bremerton from Seattle and the Puget Sound. We are proud to promote National Marina Day with a full day of fun and family oriented activities for boaters and would-be boaters at the Bremerton Marina. I am so proud of the Port of Bremerton staff. They do a great job maintaining the marina and providing excellent customer service.” The Bremerton Marina has 220 permanent slips available on a month to month basis as well as room for 80 to 100 visiting boaters. At the Bremerton Marina, the activities planned are designed to bring boaters and would-be boaters to the marina to learn about the boating lifestyle and experi-

ence fun on the water. The marina will be partnering with the Coast Guard, Bainbridge Police, Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Office and others to host a series of hands-on demonstrations and presentations from local authors and experts addressing boater safety and education. There’s also plenty of fun mixed in with the educational opportunities with live performances by the US Navy Band Passage and a complimentary lunch at the Marina Breakwater Park. The marina is also offering free moorage to all visiting boaters who choose to stay overnight on Saturday. Complimentary lunch will be served at the Marina Breakwater Park which is a 1,440 foot-long floating park. Beer and beverages will be available for purchase. Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones, authors of the Dreamspeaker Cruising Guide Series, regular contributors to local and international boating magazines, will speak. They have spent the past two summers researching local anchorages and marinas for the Puget Sound Boater’s Guide. Bob Meng, owner of On-Water Training, also will speak. As a former airline captain and US Power Squadron instructor, Meng has five decades of extensive cruising and training experience aboard nearly every type of yacht and with nearly every set of sea and weather conditions imaginable. He has trained thousands of individuals, couples and families. His seminars give an overview of the most common errors boaters make and how to avoid them. Topics include primary causes of onboard fires, dangerous mishaps at your dock and how to create perfect dockings every time. Other things to do in the area on National Marina Day include: Tour the USS Turner Joy (DD-951) — the famed, historic USS Turner Joy, a destroyer from the Vietnam War, is now maintained and administered by the Bremerton Historic Ships Association and forms part of the marina breakwater.

National Marina Day events at the Bremerton Marina include: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.: Police and law enforcement boat tours including Bainbridge Police, Port Orchard Police, Coast Guard, Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office and Department of Fish and Wildlife boats. 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.: Complimentary hull inspections by the Bainbridge Police via an underwater camera system 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Fire extinguisher certification and trainings 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.: Presentations on safe and fun boating in Puget Sound by Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones, authors of the Dreamspeaker Cruising Guides 1 p.m.: Presentation on how to avoid common boating mishaps by Bob Meng of On-Water Training 2 p.m.: US Navy Band Passage will perform 90 minutes of rock and popular music The ship is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tours are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, $7 for children and kids under five are free. Boaters can take advantage of the marina’s offer of free moorage on June 8. Restaurants are within walking distance of the marina, including Anthony’s, the Bremerton Bar and Grill and the Toro Lounge, Thomson said. “There also is the state-ofthe-art new See Film Cinema just four blocks from the marina that features high back chairs and stadium seating,” he said. On Sunday morning, overnight visitors can stay for Sunday brunch and visit the farmers market for produce and see craft vendors offering locally made handcrafted jewelry, fine art and soaps.

children in the decision. “They had asked my opinion on it,” said Rachel Nenninger, 17. “I’ve always been the youngest by four years, so I’ve never had any close siblings. I thought, ‘hey awesome.’” Adjusting to having more children in the house was not a big hassle for Phil and Kathleen. “Every kid who comes into the house, I treat like they’re my kid,” Phil said. “There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for them, biological kids or borrowed kids. They’re all mine. That’s the way we look at it. They’re ours until they go home.” According to Rachel, the biggest adjustment she ever had to make was switching rooms with her older sister Heather, 23, because after Heather turned 18 years old she couldn’t share a room with the foster children. Phil and Kathleen both agreed on the most important house rule. “Number one, don’t lie to us,” Kathleen said. “These kids need somebody that they know is in their corner,” Phil said. “That has been … one of the biggest things that we can do, be in their corner.” They also agree that finding the right way to discipline their foster children is one of the toughest challenges. “Every kid is different and you need to understand what’s going to work with each child,” Phil said. “And our three biological kids … I love them all, and treat them all fairly, but what punishment or discipline would work for one of them, would not necessarily work for all of them.” While discipline is one of the hardest things, one of the most important things is treating the foster children the same as their biological children. “I would never think to treat the kid any differently than any other kid in this house,” Phil said. “Rachel has a car. If I had another 17 year old in here, we’d work on getting him or her licensed and they’d get a car. As long as you’re doing the stuff you’re supposed to do, you’re doing schoolwork, that would be one of the things you’d get.” The Nenningers said that even though it’s important to treat each child that comes to them as if they were their own child, they are very aware that the children won’t be staying with them forever. |

“We didn’t want to adopt,” Kathleen said. “We just wanted to foster because there’s people who make mistakes. And if they were doing the things they should be doing to turn those (mistakes) around, then they need support. One of the ways they need support is they need someone to care for the kids.” But the kids are always welcome back into the Nenninger household. Around the time the couple started fostering, they were finishing up renovations in their kitchen and decided to do something unique with a wall above one of the counters. “We decided that every child that comes in and spends a week with us would make a tile,” Phil said. “The tiles are probably one of my favorite things. And you know, our kids are up there, our kids’ friends are up there. Anyone who’s spent a week here, you’re part of our house, you’re part of our home, you’re part of our family. You always will be.” The Nenningers know they won’t be doing this forever. Their youngest child will be graduating high school next year and when she does, they plan to take a break. “It’s always been our plan that when Rachel graduates, we would stop,” said Phil. “We would take a year off, to spend the summer with Rachel before she goes to college and do some of the things she wants to do. And just to kind of give ourselves a break.” They would like to travel out of the state, something that is hard to get permission to do with foster children. When they do give up fostering, they don’t intend to leave the foster care system entirely. They plan on volunteering with a program called Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). The job of a CASA volunteer is to advocate for the best interest

of the child. “(In court) the social workers may have their say, the defense attorneys have their say, but the CASA always gets his or her say,” said Phil. “They present the court what they feel is what’s best for the kids. Not what’s best for the state. Their complete focus is the child.” Ultimately, Phil and Kathleen both agree that there is nothing more rewarding than being foster parents. “I’ve always had people ask us, ‘Well how can you not get so attached to the kids?” said Kathleen. “And I say, well, of course you’re attached. I mean, as soon as you hear the story, never mind as soon as they walk in the house, or crawl in the house, or get carried into the house, you’re totally in love with them. How can you not be?” They have some advice for anyone thinking of becoming a foster parent. “You have to be ready to get your heart broken,” Phil said. “That’s the one thing that took us both by surprise. There are times when kids leave you that you’re madly in love with. It’s a good thing. You know deep down it’s a good thing, but you know you’re going to miss them. I give every kid that comes in here my whole heart. When they leave, they take a part of my heart with them.” Kathleen added, “Probably one of my favorite memories is actually them (foster children) being able to go home, going home to mom and dad.” And Kathleen gives the same advice she got when she first started as a foster parent. “If you’ve ever thought about doing it, you should just do it,” Kathleen said. “You don’t have to do it forever. You can set limits. But it is incredibly rewarding and incredibly needed. I wish more than anything that it wasn’t needed, but it is.”

Foster parents in need in Kitsap The Kitsap Foster Care Association (KFCA) was founded in 1991 and is dedicated to helping children from newborns to 17 year olds who need to be separated from their families because of abuse or neglect. Anyone with the ability to provide a good home for children, is able to financially support themselves and a child and is in good mental and physical health can become a foster parent, regardless of marital status. KFCA is an organization dedicated to supporting foster parents and foster children, even after the sate stopped funding them, according to KFCA President Naomi Nichols. “When you have kids, you need support, obviously, but you would just normally call up your neighbors or parents for support,” Nichols said. “When you’re a foster parent, then it gets a little more complicated because you’re dealing with foster parents, social workers … you really need a network around you that understands these issues, people who can explain these processes to you.” There are 35 foster parents who are actual members of KFCA, but the events the group organizes throughout the year are open to any foster parent in the state. Every year, the Mariners have a We Are Family day, an event KFCA helps bring foster parents and children to, as well as a holiday party in December. They also give out 300 backpacks full of school supplies in August. There are different types of foster parenting in Washington. Normal foster parents take in any child who just needs a home and supervision until they can return home to their parents, get adopted or they age out of the program. However, there is also treatment

foster care, something that is done through Kitsap Mental Health Services (KMHS). “The intensity is much higher,” said Samantha McDonald, a treatment foster parent. “The kids, the behaviors, are far more extreme than kids in regular foster care. You get a lot more angry kids that are acting out regularly.” Kristine Clay Welch, the Supervisor for Intensive Children’s Services, said the children in the KMHS program are provided with a lot of different services to help support them, such as therapy, and individuals who want to be treatment foster parents go through extra training. “What we’re looking for is families who can work alongside youths that have these needs and walk them through this time so they can return to their family, be adopted by another family, or just aging out into adult life,” said Welch. “These homes are specially trained to provide the limit and also the necessary lessons ... like what the children need in order to move to the next level in their life and work through their trauma.” Foster parenting isn’t the only option for supporting foster children in Kitsap County. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is a volunteer program that people can participate in, where the volunteers are specially trained citizens appointed by a Juvenile Court judge to represent a child victim in cases of abuse and neglect. Orientation meetings for prospective foster parents in Kitsap County are held periodically. For more information, visit: www.

Battling Bugs and Weeds As the season moves forward, we are getting hit with not only rain and not so good weather but the weeds and insects are moving in as well. As a natural and organic gardener I am consta nt ly bat t li ng those pesky weeds and now diseases. It is important to know what you are fighting in your garden by doing some investigating. I do a lot of traveling throughout the area and look at many yards. I noticed red thread in

Gardener Joe

Joe Machcinski many lawns. Some spittle bugs are feeding, tent caterpillars are around and aphids are eating like crazy. Weeds seem to grow

overnight and once weeded they are there again. How can we fight this you ask? Instead of just putting chemicals down which kills not only the target pest but the good ones as well, do some investigating. The red thread in the lawn tells me there is high moisture that sits on the soil surface for long periods of time. It is very important to fix the drainage issues with your soil. Thatching and aerating at the right times and feeding the soil will

be a good start. On some of the lawns I thatched earlier and I top dressed with fish compost for a nice green carpet. Fixing your drainage issue is the key. Start now raising the soil fertility, top dress annually. Spring time means bugs are starting their annual breeding cycle. They eat up your prized plants to make offspring’s. Investigate the plant. See what bug is doing the damage. I like to carry a magnifying lens. There are many

available and come in many different magnifications. And use integrated pest management. There are three steps in IPM: cultural, by taking all means in keeping your garden clean and health; physical, using the right tools like traps, pruning, and any other method to target the pest or disease; and biological control, the use of beneficial insects to eat the target pests. Put your CSI hat on and find the problem. Chemicals should be the last thing to use, but if you take the right steps you won’t have to use them at all. I promise! Reader Question:

Q. I have aphids on my camellia bush, what do I do? A. You have already begun the IPM method. You found the culprit. Now the next step is to use some of the physical means. Get a water hose and spray off the bush. Prune to open the plant up. Now, introduce the biological control by introducing lady beetles. They love to eat the aphids. Try those three steps and the use of chemicals will be eliminated. Happy Gardening, Gardener Joe You can contact Gardener Joe at

Natural Resources Board approves additional conservation land Transfer will increase protection of Hood Canal watershed while providing $1.26 million for public school construction The Washington State Board of Natural Resources approved the transfer of 405 acres of state trust land on the Kitsap Peninsula to conservation status. The action was taken Tuesday at a monthly meeting of the board. The properties, approximately 12

miles northwest of Bremerton, will become part of the Stavis Natural Resources Conservation Area (NRCA), managed by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The parcels are part of an exceptionally high-quality example of the forest community once native to the Puget Sound Trough, state conservation sources said. These mature forest stands also con-

tribute to salmon recovery efforts on the Kitsap Peninsula. The funds to acquire the trust property for the NRCA are provided through legislative appropriations to the Trust Land Transfer (TLT) Program. Based on the value of standing timber on the properties, the Common School Trust will receive just over $1.26 million for public school construction projects statewide. The TLT Program also will provide

$1.44 million – based on the parcel’s appraised land value – for DNR to purchase replacement lands more suitable for producing long-term revenue for the school construction trust. In the process of creating the transfer, the Board re-designated about 226 acres of working forestland elsewhere in the county for the State Forest Trust. DNR will manage those parcels to generate timber revenue for Kitsap County government services.

500 students, Lynch said. Jackson Park principal Tess McCartan also brief ly addressed the crowd before she, the superintendent and the five school board members simultaneously put on hard hats and dug the first bit of earth. Administrators said the construction process could begin as soon as June 5. They anticipate the project to run throughout the coming school year and following summer. If things go smoothly and on schedule, McCartan and her students should be able to move into the new building as soon as the beginning of the 2014-15 school year. McCartan said her campus has been in need of repair or replacement for some time. She said she thinks constructing a new Jackson Park has been discussed since as far back as 1987. “We have to drink bottled water because of the piping, they have done tests that things leak out so we’re not sure if things are leaking in,” she said. The most important thing the new building will provide, according to McCartan, is just improving the wellbeing, health and focus on learning for the students.

Superintendent Greg Lynch addresses the crowd Tuesday. In 2011, when voters passed district’s most recent capital projects levy, the Jackson Park construction was one of its top priorities. The overall support from the levy amounted to $58 million. Nearly half of that, $27 million,

was allocated for the new building. Most of the remainder has so far gone toward safety repairs and upgrades throughout the district and toward technology updates, according to the district.

without the shawl. Like so many other teenagers, Brittany and her mother, Kimberly, had spent the few months prior to prom searching for the perfect dress. Their search took them as far as Renton, but one stumbling block got in their way again and again. Brittany’s bust size. “She’s a 17-year-old, full-figured woman,” Kimberly said. “There’s nothing out there for a 40DDD.” Kimberly said no matter where they looked, or how hard, they could not find a single decent gown that fit her daughter’s figure. Then they remembered a store they had visited once in Victoria, Canada called Grand Central. There they found, by what seemed at the time to be great luck, a dress with the right fit. The dress was specially designed with extra stays to support her bust, and they had it hemmed by a professional tailor to make sure the fit was perfect. “The owners of the store were just amazed (she found a dress),” Kimberly said. “They were almost crying like they were proud mammas because she looked so pretty.” The Minders thought they were in the clear, but the biggest stumbling block still stood in their way — the school’s dress code. All students at Central Kitsap are forced to sign a form when purchasing their tickets to prom. Among other things, the students’ signatures certify that their prom attire

Page A13

will adhere to dress code guidelines. The relevant regulation on the form states, “Strapless dresses and those with spaghetti straps are allowed providing cleavage, midriff and lower back are covered.” District spokesman David Beil said he thinks the regulation is fairly straightforward: “I think it’s spelled out pretty clearly.” The district released a statement Tuesday that said, “If a student’s appearance does not meet the dress code, the staff help students to come up with a solution so they can still attend the school function.” The definition of cleavage itself appears straightfor ward as well: It is “The depression between a woman’s breasts especially when made visible by a low-cut neckline,” according to Merriam Webster. Part of the problem, the Minders said, is the inherent unfairness of the guideline toward women with larger breast size. Kimberly said they saw a number of girls with exposed cleavage allowed into the dance — the unfairness in the rule, they said, is that Brittany was disallowed entry primarily because her bust is larger than many of the other girls. Pictures of the prom posted on the dance photographer’s Facebook page show a number of female students admitted with strapless dresses and prominent cleavage. The Minders said that going into the dance they thought the dress adhered with the school’s dress code. Because of the nature of the rule, all they could base their judgement on was past experience, Kimberly

said. “We went by what was acceptable at prior dances,” she said. “You said this was okay. You let her in. It was the same people at each of these dances, but now they’re saying no.” Beil defended the administrators’ decision, saying Brittany wasn’t the only student at the dance the staff had to work with. The Minders themselves said that while talking with administrators they saw another girl with a large bust stopped at the door. They said their problem isn’t the dress code, it’s the enforcement. Kimberly said she would challenge anyone to go find a dress to fit a 40DDD girl that would be both appropriate and wouldn’t be completely unflattering. Since the Minders’ complaint first surfaced Monday night the story has exploded, appearing in news outlets as far abroad as the Melbourne Herald Sun and national new sites such as Gawker. At that point comments began pouring in from people across the globe both defending Brittany and criticizing her. Kimberly said people commented “over and over, ‘Why didn’t she just get another dress?’ Where are we supposed to get another dress? They’re not educated enough with this issue to know the problems.” The Minders want answers from administrators. They said the district has not responded except to remind them of the form Brittany signed. Kimberly said she wants to know what was different this time that was fine in the past: “We have no idea what was going on in their heads.”

Former Navy journalist Fred Watson dies By Leslie Kelly

Fred Miles Watson, a former Navy broadcaster and journalist who went on to have a career in newspapers, has died. Watson, 62, died May 16, at Belmont Rehabilitation Center in Bremerton from lung complications following heart surgery. Watson was a reporter and editor with a number of Navy publications in Kitsap County. He wrote for Sound Publishing from 1994 to January of 2010. For much of the time he was reporting on the Navy in Kitsap County, John Olson was his editor. Olson said Watson was one of the most dependable people he ever met. “We worked side-by-side every day,” Olson said. “And when I gave Fred a story to do, I knew he’d come back with a good one, on deadline and in great form. He was solid as a rock. He never missed a deadline.” Olson said Watson loved the Navy and he loved covering the Navy. Watson had been a broadcaster and reporter while in the Navy and served 20

years. Following that he settled in the Kitsap area and went to work for independent newspapers, including those published by Sound Publishing. “It was a bit different,” Olson said. “We weren’t just publishing what the Navy wanted people to know. We were publishing whatever was going on with the Navy. We weren’t out to get the Navy, but Fred didn’t ever shy away from telling what was out there.” One of Watson’s biggest projects was a special section to honor the USS Missouri, the ship where the declaration was signed that ended Word War II, when it left Bremerton for Hawaii where it became a monument and museum to World War II. “We had this idea to do a special publication,” Olson said. “We worked so hard to interview just about everyone who was a part of that ship. And we nailed it. We knew we had something great.” When they decided to print 10,000 copies, the Navy worried that people at the celebration would just drop the papers on the ground. So they made Olson and Watson hire stu-

dents to pick up any dropped papers so they wouldn’t blow around the base. “We did, we hired students,” he said. “But in the end, not a single paper was dropped.” Olson said Watson also was named Navy Broadcaster of the Year when his Navy radio show hit 1 million listeners. “It was based out of Tokyo,” Olson said. “He had lots of young Japanese listeners because they wanted to learn English.” And his radio voice was something, Olson said. “It was an amazing transformation from ‘Fred’ to ‘Radio Fred,’” he said. “We used to ask him to give us his radio voice all the time in the newsroom.” That voice came in handy for other things too. Watson was known around Kitsap County for emceeing events, including the Armed Forced Day Parade in Bremerton. He also was the voice of the Animal Krackers fundraiser and the pet walk for the Kitsap Humane Society. Kassie Olmsted, who worked with Watson at Sound Publishing, said Watson was recruited for emceeing events

when she went to work for the humane society. “He had the most amazing announcing voice,” she said. “You could tell he came from radio.” Olmsted called Watson a “guy with a big heart.” “He was the funniest guy you’d ever meet,” she said. “And he had all these sayings. We called them ‘Fredisms.’” Most of them, however, weren’t proper for print, she said. She also recalled that he was known for his little smokies and lemon squares. “He always brought those to our potlucks at the paper,” she said. She was editor of the Central Kitsap Reporter and Bremerton Patriot at the time that Watson worked out of the Silverdale location on Sound Publishing Navy newspapers. Sean Hughes, public affairs officer for Navy Region Northwest, said he worked with Watson for a couple of years. “By the time I arrived at Navy Region Northwest headquarters at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor in 2007, Fred was already a Navy, as well as local journalism and publishing legend,” Hughes said. “I had the privilege of working with him for a couple years as part of our contract with Sound Publishing in production of the Navy’s newspaper, ‘The Northwest Navigator.’ “The breadth of the journalism world was second-nature to Fred, and he had a golden voice for broadcast journalism, too. He was a preeminent technical expert with a kind, helping heart. Everyone on our staff considered Fred part of our Navy family, which he was by every measure.” Hughes said in his postSound Publishing career, Watson returned to his Navy roots in the Public Affairs Office at Naval Undersea Warfare Center - Keyport. “He had ‘sea stories’ that could rival the best,” Hughes said. “Fred was a wonderful man and a great Navy storyteller. We lost a legend.” He is survived by his wife, Diane, who was a Kitsap County Sheriff’s support ser-

vices specialist for 21 years. Diane called Fred “Freddie,” and was married to him for 30 years. She said he was most proud of his broadcasting. “That was his life,” she said. “He was good at writing, but broadcasting was his thing.” Fred served in Vietnam which is where he began his broadcasting work. He also served in public affairs positions for the Navy. After the

Navy, he did a lot of volunteering with his voice, she said, noting the Armed Forces Day Parade, Relay for Life and Animal Krackers. “Freddie did a lot of paying it forward,” she said. Scott Wilson, public information officer for the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office remembered Watson as reliable. Prior to joining the sheriff’s office, Wilson served as the public affairs officer for Naval Submarine Base Bangor and Submarine Group 9. “Fred was one of my ‘go to’ guys and was a huge assist with organizing and conducting tours,” Wilson said. “And … being a Navy journalist, that allowed me to also utilize Fred in his more formalized capacity, writing for the base newspaper, the “Trident Tides.” “I came to count on Fred for many things and he never let me down.”

Dustin’s hoarding shoes... for mowing the lawn My husband can’t throw anything away. I realize this could be viewed as a good thing (I guess he’ll keep me around, too), but sometimes his closet and bathroom drawers look like an episode of Hoarders. Dustin’s favorite item to hoard is...(drumroll)... shoes. Not just any shoes, and certainly not designer or stylish shoes, but shoes for mowing the lawn. Note: I have never seen my husband wear more than one pair of shoes to mow the lawn. Let’s back up, though, and talk about how Dustin buys a new pair of shoes, because that’s important. It is a long, tedious process that involves visiting multiple stores, from highend to low-end, trying on a variety of sizes and widths, and ultimately returning to the lowest of low-end stores and buying something super cheap. Our mid-shop discussion goes something like this: Me: What will the next store have that the first three stores did not? Dustin: A pair that fits my feet, hopefully. Me: The five you tried on back there didn’t fit? Dustin: I have really wide feet. Me: What exactly are you looking for? Dustin: Comfort, quality, a good fit, durability. Me (as we pull into super-cheap shoe store): If your feet hurt so much, maybe we should invest in good shoes that will last. Dustin: We don’t have money for that. We leave the super cheap store with shoes that are tied together and seem like they will crack they are so stiff. I can’t get back those hours I spent shoe-shopping. When we get home, we have the same argument: I want to throw away his

Navy Wise

Sarah Smiley old shoes to make room for the new ones, but Dustin thinks that is a waste. “I can’t let you throw out a perfectly good pair of shoes,” he says. “If these are so good, why did you get new ones?” “Because those hurt my feet.” “So why didn’t we invest in good shoes this time?” “Well, I need shoes for mowing the lawn, so put the old ones in the basement, at least.” In our basement, there is no less than 10 pairs of shoes saved for mowing the lawn. This is how hoarding begins. Today it’s the shoes; tomorrow it’s the half eaten can of tuna. When Dustin was on deployment last year, I threw out every pair of “lawn-mowing” shoes I could find in the basement. I took a whole sack to the Goodwill and never felt a moment of remorse—until last week. Dustin wanted to work in the yard. He needed shoes. He also wanted to wear flip flops to the lake, and as it turns out, I threw away all of those, too. Luckily, Dustin had another hidden stash in the garage. In a back corner, behind old sleds and lawn mower parts, there is “Hoarders”-worthy pile of golf shoes, water shoes and grass-stained shoes. As an intervention, I made Dustin watch an episode of “Hoarders” that night. He fell asleep just before the woman hoard-

ing cats opened her freezer and revealed a gruesome secret: she keeps the dead ones in there. This made me wonder where else I might find old shoes. Because the crazy thing is, my husband has approximately five shirts, three pairs of jeans and one pair of shoes (that he wears). He is a very simple man and has no fashion sense at all. So why does he need piles of old sneakers? I am not exaggerating when I tell you that the very next day, Dustin woke up and said he needed to get a new pair of shoes. The soles of his old ones were falling apart and flapping under the toe, just like every other pair of old shoes he’s had. “I need something that fits better and feels more comfortable,” he said. “I don’t think I got the right size for these.” So I followed him around department stores and athletic stores, and, yes, the same super cheap store where he bought the last pair. I thought I was losing my mind. I reminded him of the dead cats in the woman’s freezer that he didn’t see. Dustin just laughed. He’s not putting shoes in the freezer. Geez. Finally, though, I talked him into investing in a really good pair of shoes. I took him to the kind of store where they measure your feet and help you make a selection. Dustin felt good about his selection. When we got home, I told him that I was proud of him. He now owned a pair of shoes that would last. And, I’d throw out the old ones with next week’s trash. Dustin stared at me with big, round eyes. “No, I’ll need those for mowing the lawn,” he said.

Ron Ross

October 28, 1933 - May 26, 2013 Ron Ross pulled anchor for the final time May 26, 2013 and headed up the great Inside Passage. He won’t be returning to his home port in Brownsville, his office in Silverdale, or his farm in Poulsbo. The youngest of three children, Ronald Robert Ross, was born October 28, 1933 in Stone Church, Pennsylvania, to Cornelius A. “Pete” Ross, Sr., and Effie Harriet (Scragg) Ross. Ron graduated (barely) from Central Kitsap High School in 1951, and served in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict from his Fairbanks outpost in Alaskan Territory, before statehood. His high school sweetheart, Lillian “Nadean” Richardson, followed him to Alaska. They married before family and friends in Tracyton, on December 31, 1953, creating an unbreakable bond. Ron and Nadean raised three children: Ellen Ross-Cardoso (Joe) of Poulsbo, Linda Wolfe Buchanan (Alan) of Camp Verde, Arizona, and Robert R. Ross (Kim Hilgart) of Bremerton. Five grandchildren also survive: Zachary Wolfe (Robin), Crystal and Ryan Ross, and Claire and Augustus Cardoso. The light of Ron’s last year was his greatgranddaughter, Addison Nadean. Ron had a lifelong passion for sea and forest, making waves in one and trails in the other. He was an intrepid entrepreneur, from invention, production and sales of the Arcair torch, to his first real estate development (Bucklin Hill Estates), and his final dream, a retirement village on the family farm. Ron believed in working hard and playing hard. The former was done as owner/broker at Silverdale Realty, where he achieved recognition from National Board of Realtors as “Realtor Emeritus.” More importantly, his fellow realtors and staff at Silverdale were his longtime business associates and friends. He was a past Board member of Kitsap Bank, and a founding Board member of Suburban State Bank. Ron proudly served the Port Madison Enterprises Board, pioneering salmon and freshwater restoration with the Suquamish Tribe. He honored the Native American tradition of planning for seven generations, rather than the 20-year window considered “long-term” by government agencies. Ron loved working with his brother, C.A. “Pete” Ross, Jr. (deceased) and sister, Melissa Ross Olson (Poulsbo), in real estate development through their family partnership. He also enjoyed owning and operating equipment. Ron trekked miles on horseback trips into Olympic National Park, especially enjoying the Elwha and Hoh River valleys. He was an expert sailor, a trickster on skiis (snow and water), a decent tennis player, darn lucky at cards, and sat still long enough to read two books in his life. Ron loved collecting Southwest and Northwest Native American art, and often wore his art in the form of belts, buckles and/or bolas along with his trademark cowboy boots. He logged thousands of hours fishing every good hole from Puget Sound to Prince of Wales Island, making an annual trek aboard the Salmon Spirit from Brownsville, Washington to Craig, Alaska and back. He caught a few big ones, and offered the “Bump Card” to console fellow fisherman who couldn’t match his finesse with his legendary pole “The Sweeper.” He was always accompanied by family and friends aboard the Salmon Spirit, where he was known simply as ‘Skipper.’ At one point, Ron owned the Green Mountain Fire Lookout Tower, Wadhams cannery, floats and dock at River’s Inlet, British Columbia, and (we’re not making this up) the Mt. Baker Mushroom Farm. Ron also loved music. He sang, and played anything with a keyboard, most woodwinds, and a mean set of spoons. For decades, friends gathered on the 4th of July at Ross’ Royal Valley Farm for a good, old-fashioned potluck and barn dance, where he managed his alter ego, the Outlaw Paul. His most challenging interpersonal relationship was with the wily sea lion, Bothiefus, of Hole in the Wall. Ron was always willing to lend a hand, and sometimes a buck. He gave unsolicited advice in spades, and didn’t suffer criticism lightly. His friendships were for life, including best pals, Peter Grahn; “the Judge” Robert Bryan; partners, Gary Lindsey, Jerry Vergeer, Tex Lewis, and many others. Ron and Nadean’s founding gift to the Silverdale YMCA capital campaign was but one example of his belief in building a better community. Ron was a tireless advocate for property rights, especially at the County level. His presence and input at Commissioners meeting were a given for decades. He made it his mission to be aware of and thoroughly familiar with proposed regulations, and never failed to present his opinion when given the opportunity. Ron had meaningful relationships across the generations and miles. He loved and influenced his Ross, Olson and Richardson nieces and nephews, and many other children from Gen X, Gen Y, and the Millennials. His young friend, Jessi, perfectly expressed the family’s sentiment when she learned of Ron’s passing by saying, “It’s important to do good things when no one is looking, just like Ron.” We hope you will Pay It Forward, too, and stand up for what’s right, if you see a wrong. On the night of Ron’s final voyage, the moon was full; the morning brought a geoduck tide, there were oysters on the half shell, and steamer clams by the bucketful at his Seabeck hide-away on Stavis Bay. The family is hoping (for Saint Peter’s sake) that waterfront in Heaven isn’t bound by a Shorelines Management Act. A Celebration of Life will be held Sunday, July 21, 1 p.m. at the Suquamish Tribal Community House (House of Awakened Culture). Sail on, Ron, safely past Deception Pass. We’ll bring the skiffs in.

Stanley Svenson

Stanley Svenson Stan was born on Oct. 19, 1928, to Severt and Mattie Svenson and passed away on June 1, 2013. He was the youngest of six children. His siblings Olaf, Harold, Selma, Alma and Martha preceded him in death. Stan was the grandson of Poulsbo founding father, Halvor Svenson, and was raised in Vinland on the property now known as Sub Base Bangor. Here, his love of Hood Canal began. Stan married Mary Ann Morgan in 1950 and recently they celebrated 62 years of marriage. He retired from Operating Engineers Local #302 and was regarded as one of the best heavy equipment operators around. There are few local roads that he did not have a hand in building, but some of his best stories came from his time working on the North Cascades Highway. He loved the great outdoors and was an avid fisherman. Nothing was better than spending time on the water with his son and/or his grandsons, “drowning a worm or two.” He is survived by three children, Ron (Nancy), Linda (Sam), and Kathy (John), six grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Known to most as Papa, he was a man of integrity and a true example to all who knew him. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. A private family gathering will be at Vinland Lutheran Church Cemetery where he will be buried. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Seeds From Sis at 2652 NE Fern Glen Road, Poulsbo, WA, 98370. Tuell-McKee Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. “Papa: We love you all the way to the moon and back. Good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise ... we’ll see you on the other side.”

Idaho wines make a big comeback I

NW Wines

daho’s wine industry is finally coming of age — and overcoming a haunting slight by none other than The Muppets. June marks the fourth annual Idaho Wine Month. This year, it is making progress thanks to wineries, restaurants, retailers and wholesalers. That support comes all the way from the state’s capitol, as Gov. Butch Otter makes appearances at stores to sign bottles of Idaho wine. “We’ve come a long way,” said Moya Shatz Dolsby, executive director of the Idaho Wine Commission. “In 2002, there were 11 wineries.” Today, the number of producers from Sandpoint to Twin Falls is 50.

Idaho’s wine industry has faced daunting challenges through the years, not the least of which are the state’s religious and socially conservative residents. “About 30 percent of the population doesn't drink wine, the majority of which are in eastern Idaho,” Dolsby said. “We haven’t had a problem because they see the money behind it, and a lot of religious people buy wine as gifts for others.” Another hurdle can only be described as Idaho’s “Sideways” moment. In a scene in 1979’s “The Muppet Movie,” Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are enjoying a romantic dinner when Steve Martin

appears as an obnoxious wine steward who manages to besmirch the entire Idaho wine industry — which then consisted of Ste. Chapelle. In the scene, Martin pulls out a bottle of sparkling Muscatel, which he describes as “one of the finest wines of Idaho.” After tasting and spitting it out in disgust, Martin says, “Excellent choice,” to which Kermit replies, “Should be for 95 cents.” Not unlike the 2004 movie “Sideways,” which caused Merlot sales to plummet with one crude


with 22 scouts to talk about their program and show us their fabulous boat that they continue to keep up.” Schoonmaker hopes that the festival will serve to bring wooden boaters together and become a catalyst for enriching the local community.

“The whole point is to see your friends and neighbors,” he said. “We had some folks that participated in the first event that had lived in this community together for more than 25 years, are interested in wooden boats, but yet they never met.”

Continued from page 2 said. “And it really is a party for people that like wooden boats.” He added, “What we really wanted to do was bring the people that are interested in wooden boats together.” An added attraction for Schoonmaker this time around is a visit from the Sea Scouts. Like their Boy Scout counterparts, the Sea Scouts learn outdoor and survival skills while on the water. “We invited the Sea Scouts to bring their 82-foot Sparkman and Stephens ketch from Tacoma,” Schoonmaker said. “They are coming up

comment, the Idaho wine industry was set back decades. “People are still talking about that,” Dolsby said with a laugh. Today, Idaho’s wine industry has some serious momentum going, thanks in part to the energetic Dolsby and her staff, as well as Seattle-based Precept Wine, which owns Idaho’s two largest wineries and its biggest vineyard. If you haven’t tasted Idaho wines lately, this month is a good excuse to try them again. Grape growers are dialing in the viticultural practices, and wineries have a strong mix of imported and homegrown talent.

Here are four Idaho wines we’ve tried recently. Ask for them from your favorite merchant or order directly from the wineries. n Koenig Vineyards 2010 Williamson Vineyards Sangiovese, Snake River Valley, $20: This opens with aromas of white chocolate, dusty cherry, mint and tarragon, followed by flavors of raspberry and cherry on the entry, then finished with dried cranberry and raspberry. n Cinder Wines 2010 Cab-Merlot, Snake River Valley, $27: This red blend is stunning, with aromas of crushed leaf, red currant, dried cherry and cocoa powder, transitioning to flavors of Marionberry

jam, juicy cherry, lime zest and a hint of cranberry. n Sawtooth Winery 2011 Syrah, Snake River Valley, $14: Napa Valley transplant Bill Murray has crafted a superb Syrah, which starts with a nose of black currant candy, white pepper, plum sauce and oak, backed by flavors of blackberry jam, ripe boysenberry and dark chocolate. n 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards 2012 Reserve Rosé, Snake River Valley, $15: This rosé is a blend of Merlot, Grenache and Mourvèdre. It begins with aromas of golden raspberry, clove and cherry, followed by flavors of peach, apricot, tangerine and minerality. With acidity close to perfect, this has great structure and will pair beautifully with pizza, barbecued chicken or pasta with a red sauce.

He added, “There aren’t a lot of opportunities for boaters to interact around here. Mostly, we have our boats here and then we go

other places, but this in an opportunity for people to get together and talk about the things they are passionate about.”

Recognize the human-wildlife boundary proximity to people. But raccoon mothers are also very strong and protective of their young. Many dogs have learned too late not to underestimate the strength and ferocity of a mother raccoon defending her kits. Well-meaning people are often too eager to rescue “orphan” birds and wildlife babies that seem lost or

Kitsap birding By GENE BULLOCK


hose who love wildlife and nature can’t imagine a world without animals living wild and free. But people who love wildlife can sometimes love them to death. Some people are so charmed by night-time visitors they can’t resist feeding them. But treating wild animals like pets puts them and their human neighbors at risk. Teaching wild animals to associate people with food can cost them their lives. Wild animals that expect to be fed by people can pose a serious danger to children and family pets. That’s why it’s illegal to feed them. Feeding backyard birds, on the other hand, is a relatively safe hobby that adds to our enjoyment of these beautiful creatures. Birds don’t truly need our handouts, but it’s a wonderful way for families to connect with nature.

Avoid feeding wildlife, intentionally or not; it can save their lives. Kathy Swartz / Contributed One of the fastest growing hobbies in America, birdwatching, also supports a huge, growing market for bird books and accessories, seeds, suet and ecotourism. It’s a boon to the economy and provides countless jobs. What’s more, it creates a powerful constituency of citizen advocates who place a high value on protecting wildlife, habitat and the environment. Fortunately, there’s a simple way to enjoy wildlife without turning them into behavioral problems. Just

don’t feed them. Don’t leave pet food outside. Don’t make your trash containers easy to raid. Don’t make food easily available. Wildlife, like raccoons, spend most of their lives finding food for their families and they are amazingly resourceful. But raccoons are also good parents who normally teach their offspring how to stay out of trouble. They are naturally shy and smart about avoiding conflicts with neighborhood dogs, cats and people. They’ve had lots of practice surviving in close


abandoned. The parents are usually nearby keeping watch as their offspring start exploring the world outside their dens. Many don’t survive these early adventures; but mom usually knows best, so these so-called “orphans” are better left alone. Those who love wildlife intervene with the best of

intentions. Wild birds and animals have adapted and survived on their own for eons. We need to know when our help does more harm than good. We need to recognize the bounds of our relationship with wildlife and help them remain wild and free. — genebullock@comcast. net
