THE GOOD, THE FAST AND THE THRIFTY:

Shoppers look to score big with a fistful of dollars Rotary auction and sale draws crowd of hundreds BY RICHARD D. OXLEY Bainbridge Island Review

It was a battle, a fight to the end filled with raging shopaholics, deal hunters, thrift seekers and those merely with a fervor to stand noseto-nose against frugal foes. It was the 53rd annual Bainbridge Island Rotary Auction and Rummage sale and it left a slew of good deals — and tired islanders — in its wake. For Rotarians, the sale was a success. “It went very smoothly this year,” said Marisa Lanning with the Bainbridge Island Rotary. “The numbers look extremely good,” she said. “We still need to add up all the cash and checks, and this year we added a lot more credit card machines.” Rotarians continue counting the sale’s proceeds, though it’s too soon to tell how much money was ultimately raised. Lanning expects the numbers to be made official by Sunday, July 7. The sun had barely crested over the horizon when islanders, and more, began lining up on Saturday, June 29 outside Woodward Middle School. Cars and trucks lined the

It was the first, and perhaps only, time they were all in the same room together. Candidates for the island’s board of fire commissioners recently gathered for a candidate forum to say why voters should choose them for a position with the Bainbridge Island Fire Department. The forum on Thursday, June 27 served to familiarize the island community with the candidates and the issues facing the department. Three issues were of chief concern for the candidates; funding, staffing, and how to communicate the need of both to voters. Staffing the department, which relies heavily on volunteers, is a challenge. But staff, and volunteers, need financial support, the candidates said. “We have a volunteer program that has improved SEE FIRE, A11

For the fruit, not the work

IslandWood welcomes migrant students for week of outdoor education BY CECILIA GARZA Bainbridge Island Review

Cecilia Garza / Bainbridge Island Review

Students of Team Ravine pick huckleberries to snack on while hiking in the woods at IslandWood. It is in stark contrast to the jobs their parents have picking fruit. In IslandWood’s “Voices from the Field” program last week, instructors taught the students the beauty and the science of nature.

For Washington migrant students, trees are not so much ecosystems as they are what gives their parents work in the apple orchards and cherry farms of Eastern Washington. That is until they came to IslandWood last week for the “Voices from the Field” program. “Even the ferry ride is exciting for them, because they’ve never been on the ferry before, or even seen the Puget Sound,” said Samantha Ruiz, the migration graduation specialist for the Wahluke School District in Mattawa. The week-long program brought in 70 middle school students who come from

migrant households almost all from the eastern side of the state. Students coming from migrant family households have one or two parents who work in the agricultural industry. Also, it is not uncommon for them to pick up midschool year as the family makes moves between districts for seasonal work. “That’s really hard when you have an interrupted school year like that,” Ruiz said. “When you’re trying to transfer credits back and forth between schools, a lot of things can get messed up. “These kids can fall between the cracks because, between larger schools or small schools, they sometimes go unnoticed.” Victoria Diaz, an eighth-grader from SEE ISLANDWOOD, A11

In a questionable island ritual that goes back many years, some Bainbridge High School graduating seniors think it’s cool to partake in “Paint Night,” leaving their marks around the island on roads, signs and walls. Reactions from the community vary from amused to nostalgic (mostly from those former BHS grads who consider it a tradition), and perhaps the largest group who think of it as plain vandalism. Whatever it is, time to clean up the mess, again. — Joel Sackett

Bainbridge council to receive public records primer, again BY RICHARD D. OXLEY Bainbridge Island Review

The Bainbridge Island City Council will get an education on the state’s Open Records Act after the recent revelation that council members have been using personal email accounts for city business. At the city council meeting July 1, Councilman Bob Scales requested that the council receive an overview on the state’s public records laws, as well as the city’s governance manual. He specifically pointed to regulations restricting the use of personal email accounts for city business. It is an issue that each council has had to deal with in the past, Scales told his colleagues, and it’s about time that the current council gets up to speed. The council scheduled a primer on public records with the city’s attorney for Aug. 7. Scales said Tuesday morning

City and fire department begin planning for shared-use facility BY RICHARD D. OXLEY Bainbridge Island Review

The Bainbridge Island City Council gave its city manager the go-ahead this week to begin efforts to establish a facility that would house both the island’s fire and police departments under one roof. “We’ve had a number of discussions with the Bainbridge Island Fire Department with the potential of joining with them on a joint police and fire safety building,” City Manager Doug Schulze said at the council meeting Monday. “This is the first step toward memorializing that joint effort,” he said. Fire Chief Hank Teran has previously noted that the two departments could share facilities such as locker rooms, fitness areas and meeting rooms. Schulze has also said that talks have centered on taking an existing fire department building and converting it to serve both

is easy for city employees to search for and retrieve public records. Scales noted that council members should automatically be forwarding emails about city business that are sent to their personal accounts. “Often people will get something in their personal email about city business. We have a requirement to forward those onto our city email so they can be searched,” Scales said. “It’s not just a transparency issue, it’s a huge liability issue,” he added. “The city could be penalized up to $100 a day per record that is not disclosed. If it takes 100 days to get them out, then you can do the math.” Scales, a lawyer, said he also became concerned after hearing claims made by some in the community that were legally inaccurate when it came to public records. He wants to make sure that the entire council is on the same page.

That way, when a about the appropriateness of addpublic records request is made, it ing a new employee to the city’s

departments. But talk on Monday did not get into specifics. Rather, it was a formal thumbs up to pursue planning. One detail was discussed, however. A proposed contract between the fire department and the city mentions the possibility of hiring a planning consultant to help guide the effort. Schulze said that the fire department has a consultant in mind; one it has used before. Schulze also said that the cost of the consultant would likely come in under $30,000, and that the fire department would also likely take on a majority of the funding responsibility. The idea for a joint facility has been long discussed by city and fire department officials. Until now, the concept has gained little traction. In 2008, murmurs of combining island police, fire and court facilities surfaced but did not go very far. Times have changed and tight budgets and shared

needs — such as aging facilities for both departments — may be the motivation each party needs to make the idea become reality. The island’s fire department, and the city, are separate government entities, each taking a different slice of the tax-funding pie. Joining forces would allow each party to share the burdens of running their respective departments. It would also allow the city to move the police station from its current location on Winslow Way and Highway 305. Schulze has previously expressed a desire to move the police station from the corner so something that more aptly matches the downtown core could move in. The fire department currently has three stations on the island: the Madison Avenue headquarters; the station on Bucklin Hill; and the Phelps Road station which is sparsely staffed and used.

“The law is so expansive, it is easy for council members that haven’t had to deal with this routinely to think that (for example) sending an email to a member of the community for scheduling a date for a public hearing isn’t a public record when it is,” Scales said. “It takes a while to get used to that. That’s why we have a requirement in the governance manual to only use our city email,” he said. It isn’t the first time the city council has faced conflicts with personal and city email accounts. Scales also broached the topic in December 2011 when it was discovered that then-Councilman Bill Knobloch had frequently used his personal email account for city business. To remedy the matter, Scales put forth a massive public records request asking for an immense list of Knobloch’s emails that Scales knew about. The request took nearly three months to complete.

Young child taken to Seattle hospital after fall from second-floor window BY RICHARD D. OXLEY Bainbridge Island Review

approximately 10 feet. The child was conscious and suffered non-life threatening injuries, fire department officials said. The accident occurred after the child leaned against a screen which then gave way. The child slipped through the window and landed in the bushes below. Because of the nature of the fall, however, the child was transported to a Seattle hospital for observation.

IN OUR OPINION

A challenge to do better

I

ndependence Day reminds us of our blessed foundations in liberty, and our constitutional guarantees to freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press. We should also take time to celebrate another right we all share in a democratic and civil society: the ability to peacefully disagree. Too often, it seems, we are eager to disagree but embrace such differences with added unfortunate flourishes such as character attacks, imagined motives, disrespectful declarations and zealous mischaracterizations. We do ourselves a great disservice when we summarily discount an opposing or differing view with such relish. Our democracy, our marketplace of ideas, works best when a diversity of opinions are shared without fear of the focus being shifted to the person offering the opinion, rather than the idea itself. Let’s not be afraid to challenge and test the opinions that bubble up over important issues of our time. But let’s also seek to keep our debate respectful and to stay mindful to not assign ill attributes to the person instead of the opinion.

To the editor: I noticed in your article about the 25-year plan of the Bloedel Reserve that you failed to mention one important fact: The West Sound Wildlife Shelter will be forced to move. I am so proud to live on an Island which has a gem like the reserve. It is exciting to see plans for its growth and expansion. But I wonder whether those plans could not be designed to retain the wildlife shelter in its present location. If forced to move the shelter will have to look for land in a less expensive place than Bainbridge. Bloedel has always leased the five acres to them and they are a wonderful presence on the Island. I think we would all lose if the shelter was not here. I hope that the Bloedel board will rethink their plan and revise it so that both entities will continue to prosper on our Island and I encourage Islanders to write them and ask them to leave the wildlife shelter in its current site. ANNETTE STOLLMAN Bainbridge Island

Let’s hear from the ratepayers only To the editor: I find it extremely ironic to read opinions on the current city water utility issue being voiced by persons with absolutely no connection to the problem other than an interest in seeing the current ratepayers continuing to be overcharged to pay an

unfair portion of the costs of running our city government, costs that should rightfully be shared by all of the citizens living on the Island, not just a few households that happen to be connected to the city utility system. In addition, these same persons are giving the impression that by transferring the operation of the utility to the Kitsap Public Utility District, we are giving away some portion of our collective assets. I am sure that the water being pumped out of the ground will remain on our island and be well utilized by Island citizens and not exported. In the future, I would prefer reading opinions expressed by only the actual ratepayers. I am thankful that the issue is being properly presented and pursued by some fair-minded council members. FRED MCGINNIS Bainbridge Island

Examples of politics at its worst on Bainbridge To the editor: I applaud you on your last two editorials regarding our city council and the questionable governance processes that have been used by some council members pushing for certain water utility changes (such as Mayor Bonkowksi and David Ward). In both columns, you hit a bull’s eye. By contrast, council members Scales, Hytopoulos and Blair have tried their hardest to bring reason and common sense to the council meetings but have been constantly ignored. It only makes sense to study our city’s water utility rate structure

and capital projects needs carefully and to let City Manager Schulze do his job. Trying to pass proposed cuts (as the mayor and Mr. Ward have tried to do) on a date when our city manager wouldn’t be available to attend the meeting is outrageous. It appears that certain council members are saying in essence that we really do not need a city manager. Ramrodding political agendas through when a council member and the city manager are expected to be away is politics at its worst. Please stop this dysfunctional way of doing business. KATHY DUNN Bainbridge Island

Thank you

Generous donations help create Waypoint art To the editor: A very heartfelt “Thank You” to sponsors of the Waypoint beach glass tiles and the many island residents who dug deep into your treasured beach glass collections! Your generous donations are the reason this installation is as beautiful as it is. We hope the residents of Bainbridge and others enjoy the 30 tiles for many years to come. Thank you to Kimberly Gawlick and Steve Davis who helped make this a community project, cheered us on and helped us over bumps along the way. Finally, thank you to Bart Berg for orchestrating the installation, the final piece of the puzzle. Thank you, to a unique community we are proud to be a part of.

around the island Most student fees won’t go up Parents of Bainbridge students won’t have to dig deeper into their pockets to cover student fees next year. The Bainbridge Island School Board approved the schedule of course fees for students at Bainbridge High and Woodward Middle School at the board’s meeting last week, and most of the fees will remain the same. The sports participation fee at BHS will stay at its current rate of $250. Student parking passes will also remain at $240. Course fees will mostly stay the same, though students in AP Studio Art, AP Biology and AP Physics classes will also pay AP test fees in addition to course fees. The AP exam fee is estimated to cost $94. The fee for biology courses will increase from $15 to $20 a semester. District Superintendent Faith Chapel said that was to be expected, given the tremendous number of labs conducted during the course. “Our biology class is very, very hands-on,” she said. Fees for Associated Student Body cards at Bainbridge High — a major funding source for student activities and the student athletic program — are expected to stay at

$45 for the 2013-14 school year. The ASB card fee is set by students on an annual basis. The school board also voted to keep most student fees at Woodward Middle School at their current level. The exception was for seventh-grade field trips; that fee will rise from $11 to $20.

Meeting planned for subdivision The developer of a new subdivision of single-family homes on Bainbridge Island will host a community meeting next week. PVT Estates has filed a subdivision application with the city of Bainbridge Island for permission to turn a 7-acre parcel into 18 lots with three open space tracts. The property is located on the north side of Wing Point Way between Tiffany Meadows Drive and Azalea Avenue NE. A community meeting on the project will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, July 11 at the Wing Point Country Club.

Input wanted on new fare increases Across-the-board and back-to-back ferry fare increases are being proposed by the Washington State Transportation Commission. If adopted, a 2 percent increase on passenger

fares and 3 percent increase on vehicle fares would kick in on Oct. 1, and would be followed by a 2 percent increase on passenger fares and 2.5 percent increase on vehicle fares on May 1, 2014. The commission has also suggested a change in the vehicle fare for cars less than 14 feet. Those vehicles will be charged 70 percent of the vehicle fare that is paid for standard vehicles (14 feet to less than 22 feet). Officials are also seeking the elimination of the motorcycle oversize surcharge, and want to increase the youth discount from the current 20 percent off the full fare, to 50 percent off the full fare. Commission officials said the fare hikes are needed to meet the revenue target for ferry fares that was set by the Legislature in the recently enacted 2013-2015 transportation budget. Officials said the proposal was based on recommendations from Washington State Ferries and members of the citizen-based Ferry Advisory Committee on Tariffs. The commission is seeking public comment on the proposal during the coming weeks and is expected to make a final decision during its meeting at 3 p.m. Tuesday, July 30, at Union Station in Seattle. The commission will hold several meetings in communities served by the ferry system to

Page a7

get feedback on the proposed fare changes. One of the meetings will be held on Bainbridge Island. That meeting is 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, July 15 at Waterfront Park Community Center.

League to hold candidate forum The League of Women Voters of Kitsap will host a candidate forum on Bainbridge Island this month in advance of the Aug. 6 Primary Election. The event is free and open to the public. Voters are welcome to meet the candidates and ask questions. The forum will feature candidates for Bainbridge Island City Council Position 3. Three candidates are running for the post now held by Councilwoman Kirsten Hytopoulos: Roger Townsend, Robert Bosserman and Dee McComb. Hytopoulos decided earlier against seeking

another term for the South Ward seat. The forum is 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 23 at Bainbridge Island City Hall. Organizers said the forum will be recorded and broadcast later on Bremerton-Kitsap Access Television. For more information, call 360-871-3993.

Cost climbs for police study The police expert hired as a consultant to review the city of Bainbridge Island Police Department has now billed the city a total of $12,148 for his work on the assessment. Pendleton Consulting, a Kingston-based firm headed by Michael Pendleton, a former police officer and professor at the University of Washington, has been doing an in-depth organizational assessment of the department. Pendleton started his

work in March, and in his most recent invoices to the city, he has billed Bainbridge for 14 hours of additional time on the project. The council approved the payments for the work — conducted by Pendleton in May — at its last meeting. Pendleton has not responded to repeated requests by the Review for an update on his assessment. According to his project log, his most recent work has been for a two-hour interview with police on Bainbridge Island, followed by seven hours spent on data analysis from his earlier police interviews. He also spent five hours on data analysis from interviews from Bainbridge leaders and community members. All told, Pendleton has spent nearly 75 hours on the project. He is being paid $135 an hour for his work on the police department analysis.

Council approves contract change for Rockaway Beach project BY HENRI GENDREAU Bainbridge Island Review

The Bainbridge Island City Council moved forward Monday with shoring up a perilous cliff on Rockaway Beach that has bedeviled the road above it for almost two decades. The council voted unanimously to approve an updated contract for the Rockaway Beach Roadway Stabilization project, which will allow planners to redesign a retaining wall to buttress the eroding bluff. The $65,887 change will increase the consultant contract with Seattle-based engineering firm BergerABAM to $409,362. The council previously approved a $77,915 increase in the consultant contract in March 2012. The consultant costs will come out of funds already granted to the city and will be used for new designs and permits necessary to begin the job. Originally, engineers sought to build a rock revetment wall, as that option was thought to least likely harm the nearby eelgrass beds and shoreline environment. But that plan was discarded recently for a different type of seawall. On May 31, representatives from several government organizations met for six hours at the site with City Manager Doug Schulze. The Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife and the Suquamish Tribe members in attendance opposed the use of a rock

The city council has voted in favor of moving ahead with plans to stabilize a portion of Rockaway Beach Road. revetment wall, which they said would harm nearby habitat for surf smelt. Instead, federal officials and the city agreed to redesign the project with either a sheet pile or soldier pile wall, which is expected to be cheaper than the rock revetment wall anyway.

“As I’m sure the council knows, the city had proposed what is called a revetment wall,” Interim Public Works Director John Cunningham told the council Monday. Cunningham said that particular design was not acceptable to the state and the tribe, however. “We had to go back to the drawing board and redesign the project,” he said. Contractors are in the process of taking soil borings to determine whether a sheet pile wall is feasible, or if a soldier pile wall would be a better option. Cunningham expects a bid to go out to contractors this Friday to see which option would be cheaper and take less time to build. “From an engineering standpoint, we don’t really care what it is,” Cunningham said. “The city will have the right to choose the lowest responsible bidder.” Cunningham expects bidding on the project to open Aug. 1, with a contract signed by Aug. 16 and work beginning three days later. “The idea is to have the wall completed and be out of the water area by the middle of September,” he said. The council vote was 5-0. Council members Dave Ward and Kirsten Hytopoulos were not in attendance at Monday’s meeting, which was moved up from July 3 to accommodate the Fourth of July holiday.

Power knocked out around Cave Avenue BY REVIEW STAFF

Power was knocked out around Cave Avenue in Winslow after a moving truck took down electrical lines along the road, Monday afternoon. “He got under the wires and dropped off furniture and whatever, and then snagged wires on the way out,” said Fire Marshal Luke Carpenter. “Nobody is hurt.” The Bainbridge Island Fire Department and police were dispatched to the scene. Puget Sound Energy was also called in. The truck also knocked down telephone and cable lines serving the area. The lines cut into the truck, Carpenter said, and the utility companies worked to remove the truck first, before repairing the lines.

THE ROCK SHOW One man’s mission to school the nation on the thrill of discovery BY CECILIA GARZA Bainbridge Island Review

Islander Houston Wade is a gemstone hunter and, by default, an adventurer. He has visited countless ghost towns, had guns waved in his face, been mistaken for a cattle thief in the night, had his underfooting on the side of a desert cliff give way while hauling $10,000 worth of equipment up its steep face, and has driven off a bluff into Class 3 rapids. And after all that, he’s lived to tell the tales. It’s no wonder that two years ago when a friend told Wade to submit his gemstone hunting adventures to Mike Rowe’s reality show, “Dirty Jobs,” a seed was planted. It was a comment that inspired a whole pot of possibilities for Wade, who recently launched a Kickstarter to transform this morethan-a-hobby into what has the potential to become a Discovery Channel-esque TV show. “My goal is to demonstrate that people have an innate curiosity,” Wade said. “And if you give them smart TV they’ll feel something from it.” When Wade graduated from the University of Hawaii at Hilo in 2006

with degrees in geology, geography and astrophysics, he envisioned himself continuing on to the University of Washington for graduate school in astronomy, as if he didn’t have enough academia under his belt already.

Boat fest rides wave of success 1,000 and 1,500 visited in 2011. This year’s festival was a resounding success, drawing more than 3,800 people over the Father’s Day weekend; a factor in the festival’s popularity. “We had a lot of kids coming down with their dads which is a pretty special way to spend the day with your dad,” he said. And perhaps the best aspect of the event was its price; free. It’s something that organizers hope they can continue should they decide to put on another festival in the future. “We don’t want to make this about money,” Schoonmaker said. “The big thing for us is that we want it to be free. We didn’t sell anything, not T-shirts or hats.” Schoonmaker again stressed that the festival is chiefly about fostering a community of Bainbridge Islanders with a penchant for wooden boats. The island’s wooden boat festival has established a website, www.biwbf.info, as well as its own Facebook page.

BY RICHARD D. OXLEY Bainbridge Island Review

The Bainbridge Island Wooden Boat Festival is an infrequent event, thrown by locals, for fellow enthusiasts. But when the festival does float into town, it makes quite a splash. “It was wildly successful,” said Bob Schoonmaker, owner of the Chandlery at Winslow Wharf and organizer of the event. “Boat owners welcomed hundreds and hundreds of people onto their boats,” he said. “Everybody had a great time.” Nearly 50 wooden boats with Bainbridge Island connections converged onto the Harbour Pub dock on June 15 and 16. It was a celebration of the craft, but mostly it was a way for admirers to talk shop. “This is about building community,” Schoonmaker said. “We were successful in building community with Bainbridge Islanders.” Heads were not counted at the first Bainbridge Island Wooden Boat Festival, but Schoonmaker “guestimated” that between

For every 150,000 diamonds found, one Bixbite is found. Often called red emerald, this little red-purple stone is commonly found at a size of .15 carats or less. It has been discovered just a few times weighing more than one carat. Wade has a couple little guys in his résumé of discoveries and hopes to uncover more in Utah where he has mapped out virgin ground. Of course there’s more to it than digging in dirt with wenches, pry bars and possibly explosives. There are a few things about gemstone hunting that Wade explains are key to his trips, and he plans on covering them in “Get Your Rocks Off With Houston.” He will talk about the gem and its qualities, what measures it will take to get to the location where the gem is thought to be and how they plan on retrieving it, and lastly, the history of the places they pass along the way. Where mines are, he says, there are often ghost towns. And with ghost towns there are often good stories. “It’s fascinating how fast a force of humanity can extract everything and leave and move on,” Wade said. About a year ago, Wade started actively searching for producers for his show. A few seemed promising, but fell through, including one who wanted to turn his educational idea into “The Big Bang Theory in real life.” Running around the desert act-

Instead Wade plans to show his audience the accessibility of rare stones, whether it be opals, turquoise or bixbite, in more of a “Myth Busters” fashion. At this point he has enlisted David Merwin of Merwin Productions to provide the production equipment — “He is like the super helper man,” Wade said — and he has recruited some of his most digitally inclined students at the Art Institute to provide the filming expertise. His Kickstarter fundraising goal is $24,000, which will be used to take a

crew of people out on the road. They need to raise the money for gas, food and incidentals in case something happens; Wade knows all too well that accidents can happen. “There’s always risk,” Wade said. “You just don’t think it’ll happen to you.” In fact, around this time last summer, Wade was on his way to a ghost town about 30 miles south of Winnemucca, Nev. called Star City. The road up to the town was easy at first. Then it got bad. Then it got worse. On one side was a sheer cliff and on the other side was about a six-foot drop that ended in water. He got out to see if there was a place he could turn around. About 500 yards up the mountain he found one, but soon the path under the front driver’s side tire gave way and he began rolling down the side of the mountain. There had been moments of realization before this that death might come sooner than imagined. But this was the first time he actually thought he was about to die. By steering into his demise instead of out of it, Wade explained, he somehow managed to drive his Ford F150 — or “Dentosaurus Rex” — through the Class 3 rapids back onto land with just a broken running board at the end of it. If he can manage his goal of $24,000 to take a crew out to Utah, he will be taking the “Dentosaurus Rex” to filming locations starting this August or September. His Kickstarter can be found under the pilot name, “Get Your Rocks Off With Houston,” on Kickstarter.com.

ISLANDWOOD CONTINUED FROM A1

Mattawa, lives with her parents and relatives. She says it’s hard because she doesn’t get to see her 19-yearold brother who, about four months ago, left for Wenatchee to drive a forklift at an apple packaging plant. Her father works as a mechanic for Evans Fruit Company. Her mother just recently went back to work picking apples at King Fuji Ranch after a fall from her ladder left her to recover from a broken tailbone and a pinched nerve. Victoria has moved just often enough to qualify her as a migrant student in Mattawa but not so much that she is going in and out every year. It’s the stress of a working family that makes a flexible education vital for migrant students. So with this, the IslandWood education team, along with Helen Malagon, the State of Washington’s associate director in Migrant and Bilingual Education, and Ellen Ebert, the state’s science director, teamed up to create an opportunity for Washington migrant stu-

dramatically, compared to 10 or five years ago,” said YongSuk Cho, a candidate for Position 2. “As a commissioner you need to think about funding that program more.” David H. Lynch, also running for a six-year term in Position 2, agreed. “One issue is trying to keep volunteers and career people on the island,” Lynch said. “The island is much more expensive to live on than, say, Poulsbo. First responders are going to have difficulty getting here if the Agate Pass Bridge is not available.” Lynch brought the matter back to the need for public communication, so voters can provide the funding the department will need. “We have to say what kind of levies we can go to the voting public for,” Lynch said. “How do we present that to the public and help them understand what kind of staffing is necessary?”

Lynch asked, noting that it’s the commission’s responsibility to make the case. Lynch said that inflation often outpaces the amount of funding coming into the department, and that the EMT levy provides less money than other sources of income. The majority of calls the fire department responds to are also medical-related. Position 2 attracted considerable attention during the forum. Three candidates — Lynch, Cho and Meghan McKnight — are vying for the post. The three-way race has prompted a Primary Election battle, with just two advancing from August to the November ballot. McKnight comes fresh from her duties at a code compliance officer for the city of Bainbridge Island, where she worked closely with the fire department, handling regulations related to fire codes.

He has spent 14 years as a firefighter and EMT with the Seattle Fire Department. He hopes to bring his experience in the field, and intimate knowledge of the department, to the board. One question from the audience drew particular attention from the candidates. Three of the candidates, one in each race, have ties to the fire department, and they were asked if it posed a conflict of interest. Holly vanSchaick, a Skagit County paramedic and member of the International Association of Fire Fighters union, said she is not a member of the island’s bargaining unit and therefore has no conflict of interest. Bill Ruddick’s son is employed as a firefighter in the department. Ruddick said that he was not aware of any issues that could cause concern.

Cho is a 23-year member of the island’s volunteer force. He said he did not believe it posed any conflicts. If any arise, Cho said he would step aside. “A large part of the department are my friends,” he added. “There are union issues. I’m going to lean more toward their safety, which means more staffing.” The remaining candidates used the forum to introduce themselves and stress why they would make good commissioners. Eileen McSherry, a candidate for Position 4, noted her experience working in the safety field as a human resources professional for North Kitsap Fire & Rescue. Ruddick, her opponent, noted his background in the business realm. “I’ve run businesses that do up to $275 million in business,” Ruddick said. “Whether it’s a corporation (or a fire department), these things are all the same,” he said. “We have to

Another study had the students divide the beach into sections to find how many crabs live in an area based on the distance from the water. It gives a whole new image to the outdoors for these students, and, IslandWood hopes, sheds light on the scientific aspects of the fields their parents work in. Over the week at IslandWood, students could be found hiding in the woods playing a game called “camouflage,” identifying plants, pointing out even the smallest of birds hopping from limb to limb in the forest, or learning the difference between sapsuckers and woodpeckers from the marks they leave behind on tree trunks. “We don’t want them to just go back into the fields when they’ve graduated,” Ruiz said. “And that’s why we bring them to IslandWood, we want them to see what else is out there and experience new things.”

For her part, vanSchaick said that she works a 48 hour work week — all 48 hours straight — leaving her plenty of time to devote to board work. She went through basic training on Bainbridge Island in 2009 before moving on in her career. vanSchaick said that she believes she can use her experience in other districts to improve Bainbridge’s fire department. Dettmer said she brings years of experience managing a law firm that handled many health care cases, and added that most calls on the island deal with health-related emergencies. “I think it is important that commissioners have management experience because that is their job, management,” Dettmer said.

Bainbridge Community Foundation gives grants to 46 nonprofits BY REVIEW STAFF

Troubled teens on Bainbridge will soon receive free, confidential mental health guidance in a way that is familiar and convenient: through social media. Bainbridge Youth Services is sponsoring the new mental health program, and the nonprofit’s outreach effort is one of nearly 50 programs that will receive funding this year from the Bainbridge Community Foundation. The grants were announced at a celebration event on Thursday, June 27 at the Bainbridge Performing Arts facility. There was a lot to celebrate. The grants, which total about $140,000, were awarded to 46 nonprofits, including the Bainbridge Chorale, Helpline House, and the Bainbridge Island Domestic Violence Program by the YWCA of Kitsap County. Bainbridge Youth Services will collaborate with the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island to develop the new mental health service. Teens will have access to help through both texting and web-based educational tools designed and implemented by professionals on Rotary’s Healthy Youth Committee. “Over the last decade Bainbridge Youth Services has seen an increase in our youth ‘calling for help,’” Marina Cofer-Wildsmith, executive director of BYS, said in the grant application. “The collective data tells us that our adolescents have extremely high anxiety and depression issues.” The social media campaign is a way to answer urgent, real-time questions and to provide resources that can help both teens and their parents. Privacy and

confidentiality will be guaranteed. “Our texting program will be staffed by qualified, certified therapists who will use this outreach to educate and engage, not counsel,” Cofer-Wildsmith explained. “Likewise, the web program will have two pages (an Ask the Doctor and an Ask the Counselor page). Qualified medical professionals will staff both pages.” The grant celebration event was the culmination of the Bainbridge Community Foundation’s ninth annual community grants cycle, in which local nonprofits submit funding requests to help them meet local needs. The requests are evaluated by a grant committee made up of members of the foundation board and the community. The grant requests fall into a variety of categories, including health and human services; environment; arts and culture; education; animal welfare; and recreation. “BCF is proud to be a part of a collection of donors, nonprofits and community members working together to enhance the quality of life for Island residents and beyond,” said Jim Hopper, executive director of the foundation. “Our donor-advised fund partners contributed more than $80,000 toward these grants,” he said. Individual grant amounts ranged from $750 to $6,825. Twenty-three of the proposals were fully funded. Among the programs receiving grants were: Robotics education in Bainbridge elementary schools: The Bainbridge Schools Foundation will introduce a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) robotics

Others came prepared with jumbo shopping carts and hand trucks. Smart families took on the sale as a team, sending swift-footed scouts ahead to occupy furniture and stake other claims.

program at the elementary school level this fall to stoke children’s interest in math and science at an early age. The BCF grant will help fund the first phase of the program – summer training for a pilot teacher from each grade at each of the four elementary schools and robotics kits for their classrooms. Throughout the year, students in the pilot classes will design and build machines to make the connection between what they are learning and how to solve real-world problems. Sensory program to serve children/families with autism: On the fourth Sunday of each month the Kids Discovery Museum will be open solely to children and families with autism, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., to allow them to explore the exhibits in a quieter environment, with assistance from applied behavior analysis specialists. In addition, four times a year a “Kids Night at the Museum” will be geared for autistic children, giving parents a needed break knowing that their child is in trained hands. Student Conservation Corps removing invasive plant species on conservation lands: This Bainbridge Island Land Trust grant will pay for corps directors to oversee students (ages 15 to 18) throughout a four-week summer program and support an additional week of student work on trust-conserved properties. The ongoing student program not only enhances the overall health of the natural areas of the Island, it also educates a new generation of conservationists, the application said. Spay and neuter program: The Kitsap

Inside the school building, bodies squeezed and raced through hallways to raid camera gear, musical instruments, books and more. And sporty islanders scored a range of equipment from soccer balls to basketball hoops. While the initial wave swept through the sale quickly, taking quite a few deals with it, the campaign continued throughout the day, sparing very little. But the leftovers won’t go to waste. “A lot of the items we did not sell went to charities and nonprofits,” Lanning said. The Rotary auction raised $385,856 in 2012. The money went toward a variety of Rotary projects, including local programs and scholarships, local community grants, and international work. The money also went into a fund for major projects on Bainbridge.

Humane Society operates a spay-and-neuter program to control pet overpopulation in Kitsap County, and assists low-income families by offering special pricing for the surgery. Additionally, in partnership with PAWS of Bainbridge Island, the Humane Society will establish a new program called “Project Connect,” which will center on providing pet spay/neuter services to the underprivileged and homeless free of charge and also transportation to the shelter for the procedure.

Visually impaired persons room at the library: The Bainbridge Public Library will be able to renovate and upgrade the small downstairs room that is used by members of the visually impaired persons group and other library patrons whose vision is impaired. After 15 years, the room looks like a storage place for outdated stuff and the environment is no longer inviting – or even safe, the application noted. Free legal assistance: Kitsap Legal Services will use foundation funding

to continue operating the monthly Bainbridge Island Advice Clinic at Helpline House, which provides assistance to vulnerable and lowincome residents in areas of civil law, including housing, family, bankruptcy, consumer, employment and wills. The Bainbridge Youth Services grant for innovative mental health access was one of three Trustee Awards given this year. These special recognition awards are separately funded by foundation trustees, staff and grants committee members, and are given to proposals that promote partnership or collaboration between community organizations. Two other Trustee Award recipients were the Bainbridge Schools Foundation, to fund the planning of a large art installation by children in collaboration with the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art and KiDiMu; and Bainbridge Island Child Care Centers, to support a collaborative staff training program for the Boys and Girls Club of Bainbridge Island and the child care center – the two largest after-school programs on the Island. The Bainbridge Community Foundation, established in 2001, is a public grant-making charity that accepts and manages funds from donors who want to support community improvements. The foundation’s assets total approximately $10 million. During the last 12 years, the foundation has given more than 900 grants totaling just under $4 million to causes that the Bainbridge Island community cares about.

district officials talk about replacement levy for technology BY BRIAN KELLY Bainbridge Island Review

Bainbridge Island school officials have settled on four options for a technology levy that may go before voters next year. The school district’s current $5.2 million levy, passed by voters in 2010, expires in 2014. Options now under consideration range from a $4.5 million levy, that would pull in $1.5 million a year, to a $6.6 million levy, which would mean annual revenues of $2.2 million. At their meeting last week, school board members indicated they weren’t interested in letting the tech levy expire without a replacement. Even so, discussions are still in the early phases as officials review how much money should be devoted to five focus areas for levy funding, from learning and teaching to communications, infrastructure and network systems. Although the state Legislature has pledged an additional $1 billion for education in the next biennium budget, Bainbridge officials don’t expect to see a windfall that can be used to fund the district’s ongoing technology needs. District Superintendent Faith Chapel noted it was unrealistic to think any additional funding would cover the existing gap between what the state gives the district to pay for basic education in Bainbridge schools and what it actually

costs. “There’s still going to be a tremendous need for local support for technology,” Chapel said. Under the four options that include a replacement levy, the $4.5 million scenario would maintain the current approach of having the equivalent of two to three computer devices per classroom, or a student-to-device ratio of 4:1 across the school district. Teaching staff computers would be replaced on the current five-year schedule, and computers would also be replaced for district and school support staff. The district’s telephone and voicemail system that was purchased in 2006 would also be replaced in 2014-15, and current levels of tech training for support staff and teachers would continue. Other scenarios — a $5.9 million levy, a $6.1 million levy and a $6.6 million levy — would build on the first levy option by increasing the student-to-device ratio and putting more computers in classrooms. Those scenarios could also create the possibility for students to “check out” computing devices. Some school board members said they supported a tech levy that would go beyond the basic option that would maintain the status quo by using technology purchased by the 2005 and 2009 bond measures. Officials also noted the

classrooms still used overhead projectors and 85 percent of classrooms were equipped with televisions and VCRs. In the past school year, the current tech levy has paid for new computers at Woodward Middle School, including desktop models in the lab and library. The staff also decided to replace old computers used by students with 19 desktop computers and 41 laptops. New Smart boards were also installed at Bainbridge High and Eagle Harbor High. The existing levy has also paid for iPads, and staff at Bainbridge High and Woodward are now exploring the use of Chromebooks — personal computers that are designed to be used while connected to the Internet and online applications — as a pilot project in the school district.

the Legislature’s recent work on funding K-12 education measures in the state budget. More accurate estimates on the district’s technology needs and priorities will be prepared for the July 25 school board meeting. At that meeting, board members will get revised technology options and also options for measuring success of technology levy projects. Bainbridge passed its first tech levy in 2006. Before then, roughly 90 percent of computers in district classrooms were donated by PTOs or purchased with grant funding from the Bainbridge Education Support Team or the Gates Foundation. There were no student computers in sixth- through eighth-grade classrooms, and only one out of 10 high school science classrooms had computers. Approximately 95 percent of

Charles Warner Gates, II, was born in Chicago, Illinois, on September 23rd, 1926. He was the son of Charles Clifford Gates and Lela Courson Gates. His grandfather, Charles Warner Gates, for whom he was named, was a founding member of the Crossett Lumber Company in Crossett, Arkansas. He was also an early benefactor of the California Institute of Technology, (CalTech), in Pasadena, California, where he and his brother, A. Peter Gates, gave the Gates Hall of Chemistry, now used as the office of the president and others connected to Cal Tech administration. When he was two years old his mother was widowed, and soon afterwards took him to live in France for four years. He learned to read and write and speak the French language, which he continued to read and speak and enjoy for the rest of his life. After leaving France he moved to Pasadena with his mother and graduated from the Polytechnic School, the Cate School, in Carpenteria, California, and UC Berkeley, where he was in the School of Business. He graduated in 1948, and was a member of Alpha Delta Phi fraternity. In December of 1948 he married Helen Elizabeth (Betty) Upton, who graduated with him in the same class, and they had four children: Charles Warner Gates, III, William Upton Gates, Geoffrey Stephen Gates, and Elizabeth Courson Gates. They were married for 65 years. When he retired as a Vice-President of Merrill Lynch, he moved to the Seattle area, and lived on Bainbridge Island for 18 years. He became active in the Mayflower Society of Washington State, and was one of their presidents. He was directly descended from Stephen Gates who came to the Boston area in 1636 from Hingham, England. The family subsequently married into the families of Stephen Hopkins and John Billington, two of the passengers on the Mayflower. In addition to his wife and four children and their spouses, he leaves six grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, a stepbrother and sisters, and many cousins. There will be a service at St. Barnabas Church on Saturday, July 6th, at 3 p.m. Contributions in his memory made be made to the Organ Fund of St. Barnabas Church, 1187 Wyatt Way, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110.

KEIKO HARA SHOW: Bainbridge Arts & Crafts welcomes Keiko Hara, a Japanese artist of international renown, for the exhibit “Keiko Hara: Prints from 1981 to 2013” at the gallery in July. An opening reception is 6 to 8 p.m. July 5 on the First Fridays Art Walk. Through vividly abstract two and three-dimensional work, the artist explores the universal concepts of place, space, nature, memory, and the passage of time with imagination, energy and astonishing technical skill. Hara has built a 40-year career in the United States with works of art that meld traditional and contemporary techniques with a sophisticated sensibility that truly bridges cultures. Born during World War II, the artist relocated to the U.S. in the early 1970s to further her art studies, earning three fine art degrees in vastly different locales, from Mississippi to Michigan to Wisconsin. From 1985 to 2006 she was a professor of art at Whitman College in Walla Walla. Hara will discuss her inventive, technically astounding prints, which meld traditional Japanese techniques with a strikingly modern sensibility, at a gallery talk at

FYI POLICE BLOTTER Bainbridge Police reported the following incidents: Wednesday, June 19 12:57 p.m. A young woman near Sunrise Drive called 911 after her friend panicked while drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana. An aid car was called and the three friends were evaluated and found to be in good health. Police parked their car nearby and drove the girls to their tent at Fay Bainbridge Park. 8:55 p.m. A woman drove her car off the road at Seabold Road and Highway 305. When police spoke to her, she said she had been drinking “way too much” and said she had been drinking “gin and something.” The woman failed roadside sobriety tests and was arrested for drunk driving. Attempts to get a breath test at the station failed as the woman began vomiting. Before going to jail, an officer was able to get a breath test, which registered a .202 blood alcohol level. Thursday, June 20 3:26 p.m. A young woman said she placed an ad on craigslist for work. She was soon emailed by a man asking her to cash a check for $1,995. The man asked that she send him $1,500 and she could keep the rest. The woman did so, but later found out that the check was counterfeit and she now owes her bank $1,500. 4:18 p.m. An owner of a vessel anchored in Eagle Harbor called 911 after someone boarded her vessel overnight and took a commemorative plaque from the wheelhouse. 6:34 p.m. A Winslow father called 911 when his two daughters came to his home after an argument with their mother. The mother was unhappy with one daughter over a camp she wanted to go to, saying it was during her visitation days. The mother clenched her fist and advanced toward her daughter. She then retreated to the bathroom where she cried loudly. The girls then ran out of the home. When police spoke to the mother, she thought her daughters were upstairs and still at home. She told police her ex-husband was “poisoning” their minds against her. Police said it was best to separate people during an argument, and the mother said that officers were violating her rights as a parent and accused the officer of taking her children away from her. She then went into the bathroom and began crying. An officer was able to calm her down before leaving the scene. The daughters stayed with their father. Saturday, June 22 12:46 a.m. Police pulled over a driver on Sportsman Club Road after she swerved in and out of her lane. The driver failed roadside sobriety tests and registered .19 on a portable breath test. The driver was arrested. Later breath tests registered .193 and .184 blood alcohol levels. 2:43 a.m. A north island resident called police after a young intoxicated man walked into her unlocked home and scared her and her daughter. The man then walked away. Police patrolled the area and found a young man walking on the road. He was intoxicated, but did not match the description of the first young man. Soon, another officer discovered a young man sleeping in an unlocked van that wasn’t his. Police gave the man a ride home. The next day, the young man called the officer and said he wanted to apologize to the homeowner and the owner of the van. The officer set up a meeting for the apology.

The new ‘big day’ of the week In Port Gamble, Thursday becomes a warmup for the weekend with car shows and a free music concert series

W

ednesday is hump day. Friday is the last work day of the week. The weekend is, well, the weekend. So what the heck is Thursday? It’s like a tease — the weekend is staring you in the face, but it’s … just … out … of … reach. You’ve still got to get through Thursday and Friday to get there. Port Gamble, that 1853 mill town-turned-visitor destination overlooking Gamble Bay and Hood Canal, is transforming Thursdays into a warmup for the weekend, with classic cars and live music

performances by some of the region’s hottest bands.

And the car show and concerts are free.

Local cormorant colony is the largest in state KITSAP BIRDING By GENE BULLOCK

I

n fairy tales, scary things often hide under bridges. But in Kitsap County, bridges can harbor unusual wildlife, including peregrine falcons and a unique colony of pelagic cormorants. A pair of falcons can be seen nesting on the underside of the Agate Passage Bridge. And the Warren Avenue Bridge in Bremerton is home to a unique community of pelagic cormorants, as well as a nesting pair of peregrine falcons. The steel girders and massive columns of the Warren Avenue Bridge are inaccessible to land-based predators and rain, making them especially attractive to winged wildlife. Of course, the presence of rock pigeons is an added plus for peregrine falcons that pursue them for a living. Although these nest sites are unreachable without special equipment, they are visible from the water and from vantage points at both ends of these overarching spans Most people are familiar with the common Doublecrested Cormorants that

But the slender, snake-necked Pelagic Cormorants are found only along the rocky cliffs and saltwater shorelines of the Pacific Coast. The colony that has adopted the underside of the Warren Avenue Bridge is the largest in Washington state. The Pelagic Cormorant is one of three species of Cormorants found in Kitsap County. Bluecheeked Brandt’s Cormorants tend to congregate around the

Bainbridge Island fish farms, where they look for free meals of farm-raised salmon. More than 10 years ago, Kitsap Audubon member Ivan Summers discovered this thriving colony under the Warren Avenue Bridge and persuaded Kitsap Audubon to fund the construction of stairs and a hand rail to make Lower Rota Vista Park more accessible. This charming little park at the end of Elizabeth Avenue offers an exceptional vantage point for viewing activity under the bridge. Kitsap

Bainbridge Island, delivers an edgy, unrestrained blend of blues from the 1920s to today. The band features the vocals of front-woman Julie Duke, funky bass powerhouse Steve Pearce, guitarist Brian Barta, keyboard player Van Bergen and the rhythmic styling of drummer John Lester. The band’s cover versions are choice and eclectic, including songs by Elmore James, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Koko Taylor, Freddie King and Big Mama Thornton. “Rousing, rattling, big-bottomed boogie and blues,” Kingston Farmers Market manager Clint Dudley said of the band. “Julie fronts a band of seasoned bluesmen with warmth, humor, and the style and taste to play to almost any crowd ... This

Audubon has since funded the design and installation of an interpretive sign that explains the special significance of this viewing site and acknowledges Kitsap Audubon’s debt to the late Ivan Summers. When the bridge was repainted in 2004, the Washington Department of Transportation headed pleas from Kitsap Audubon members and took special care to avoid disrupting this breeding colony.

An interpretive sign in Lower Rota Vista Park tells of the nearby bird populations. Gene Bullock / Contributed Falcon nest. It was incubated in an active nest in Oregon and released as an adult in the Lower Columbia Gorge on May 13, 2004. Peregrine Falcons prey on other birds, such as Rock Pigeons. They can plummet from great heights with their wings folded to strike passing birds. They can achieve speeds of 200 miles per hour during these “stoops,” making them the world’s fastest bird. After striking prey with their rapier-like spurs, the remarkably agile falcon

often catches the falling prey in mid-flight before it tumbles to the ground. The absence of oils in their feathers makes cormorants less buoyant, enabling them to dive deeper in their pursuit of fish. Because of the lack of oil, however, feathers become saturated and must be dried in the sun. Cormorants are often seen sunning themselves with wings spread open to dry. — Contact Gene Bullock at genebullock@comcast.net

t may be hard to imagine the continued importance of public libraries in the age of the Internet, Amazon’s online book store and Google/ Bing search. The modern library is not a dark, musty-smelling book warehouse patrolled by the quiet police. Take a look at KRL’s plans for the new Kingston branch library and you’ll see a light, airy welcoming space that encourages people not only to browse the collection but also curl up with a book or meet with others to learn together. It is connected to the Internet with a highspeed, high-capacity portal you can use if you have a laptop, tablet or mobile device; if you don’t own such a device, you can use computers at your public library to connect to jobs or social networks. While still offering more than 525,000 physical items patrons can borrow, KRL’s modern library system also has collections of thousands of ebooks and downloadable audiobooks, and millions of songs, that you can download and use for free. New community libraries become gathering

places and spur economic development. New libraries regularly see double the traffic and activity of the older facilities they replace. Where libraries are located strategically in areas that were in decline, as they were in Boise, Idaho, the new facilities provided a boost that generated redevelopment and new business activity. All of this is the result of a relatively small cost to local taxpayers. The typical Kitsap household pays about $80 per year toward library service. If you borrow, instead of purchase, a few books, a few DVDs and a couple of music CDs in a year, you will get more in return than you’ve spent for your share of KRL’s operations. But even more valuable, KRL makes a world of information accessible to you and helps you navigate that world. KRL still gets about 115,000 reference inquiries each year, helping residents find answers to questions for work or school projects. Our reference librarians have even helped local authors write more accurate and detailed books. The art of library reference is not dead. — Jeff Brody is communications director of Kitsap Regional Library.

spice market. On the palate, it produces flavors of black pepper, dark chocolate, strawberry-rhubarb jam and Bing cherry. ■ Maryhill Winery 2010 Les Collines Vineyard Merlot, Walla Walla Valley, $36: Norm McKibben owns and co-owns several premier vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley, including Seven Hills and Pepper Bridge, and this 240-acre site in the southern valley is managed by his son, Shane. This yummy Merlot casts out aromas of orange zest, cherry bitters, spice and some oak, followed by flavors of cranberry, black cherry and chocolate. It’s a smooth, approachable red wine. ■ Maryhill Winery 2010 Alder Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Horse Heaven Hills, $40: Alder Ridge is an 800-acre vineyard in the southern Horse Heaven Hills. It is less than an hour’s drive east of Maryhill Winery and is highly regarded for its warm-climate grapes, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon. This example begins with whiffs of cedar, red currant, black raspberry and ripe plum. On the palate, it brings rich flavors of blackberry compote, chocolate and even notes of fresh cranberry. — Eric Degerman and Andy Perdue run Great Northwest Wine.

Maryhill wines: ■ Maryhill Winery 2010 Elephant Mountain Vineyards Indira, Rattlesnake Hills, $40: Elephant Mountain Vineyards in the Rattlesnake Hills region of the Yakima Valley is perhaps best known for its Syrah, but it also grows other Rhône varieties. This vineyarddesignate from Maryhill Winery includes the somewhat rarer Cinsault and Counoise grapes, which are best known for contributing to Chateau de Beaucastel in the southern Rhône. This is a superb red with aromas of dark chocolate, toasted marshmallow, boysenberry, lime zest and toffee. On the palate, it reveals flavors that reminded us of a Heath candy bar, slate, coffee and dark fruit. ■ Maryhill Winery 2010 Northridge Vineyard Primitivo, Wahluke Slope, $32: For many years, Primitivo and Zinfandel were considered to be the same grape. Research revealed they both are clones of a Croatian variety known as Crljenak Kastelanski. Primitivo has a long, illustrious and mysterious history — and a myth has been perpetuated that it was the wine served at the Last Supper. This superb wine opens with aromas of cigar leaf, dried strawberry, raspberry and something that reminds us of an Arab

Rainier cherries: Naturally gluten-free and delicious

S Leave the ordinary behind. Go extraordinary.

ometimes, I think that the simple things are a neces-

sity. The summertime is one of my favorite times of the year because it is quite naturally easy to eat gluten-free. One of my favorite treats that the Pacific Northwest region creates is Rainier Cherries. They are so beautiful, with their golden yellow and blush red hue. One of nature’s works of art! The flavor is slightly tart and slightly sweet. I think they are very different than the dark red cherry — excuse me for one minute. Yes, ever so slightly sweet and tart with a creaminess to it. Absolutely ahhh-mazing! Naturally gluten-free Rainier Cherries only make a brief appearance late June and into July, provided that the orchards have nursed them and have been patient. We all must wait for the perfect weather conditions to ripen the cherries so that they can be picked and delivered to us. I hope you realize that

back to you on that one.) Harold Fogle, director of the cherry breeding program at WSU Extension in Prosser, made the cross in 1952. The first Rainier Cherries were released in 1960. Word on the street is that the mother tree still exists in that area, receiving royalties and is trademarked! I like to take cherries with me wherever I go during the summer. I usually pack them in a container with a few ice cubes just to keep them chilled. There isn’t any thinking involved, they are naturally gluten free. Rainier Cherries don’t need to “go with anything” because they are perfect by themselves while you read a good book at the beach (or while you write). They are also the perfect “house-cooling” gift at a barbecue in a nice bowl. Just watch everyone’s face light up when you walk in with Rainiers. It will be as if you have a fine, prized bottle of wine! I do have to caution you that the Rainier Cherries have pits just like any other cherry. So, please be aware that this is one time I will say “don’t forget to spit” — because of the pit, not because they are not good. You might also want to be aware that they may cause unprovoked competition between house guests and party goers as each cherry pit spitter tries to out do the other. Have fun, enjoy, and as we say here: Life is but a bowl of Rainier Cherries! Salud! — Lisa Garza’s Gluten Free Foodies is one of the more popular blogs on Sound Publishing’s websites.
