Young Japanese visitors hit the shooting range By KEVAN MOORE

Mina Sasaki, 16, visiting Bremerton for a few weeks this summer from Kure, Japan, fires a .38 revolver at the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club Monday evening. Looking on is gun range officer Marcus Carter.

Three Japanese youngsters taking part in the City of Bremerton/Bremerton Central Lions Club student exchange program are heading back home with a bang. Sixteen-year-olds Kanako Matsutani, Mina Sasaki and Gehshi Toyota visited the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club Monday evening to learn how to safely handle and fire a variety of weapons. The youngsters from Kure, Japan arrived in Bremerton July 26 and were set to head home Aug. 22. This marks the 44th year of the exchange

program with Bremerton’s Sister City. Bob Battin, who chairs the exchange program, describes himself as a gun enthusiast and advocate and brought most of the weapons for the kids to learn how to safely handle and shoot. “We’ve done it almost every single year,” he said of the gun range visit. “We contact each of the host parents to make sure it’s okay; if they have a problem with kids coming out to the gun range, that’s okay, too.” Battin said the fact that firearm ownership is illegal in Japan makes the youngSee Shooting Range, A17

Council candidates struggle to say Perfecting budget is no easy task for something nice about each other By KEVAN MOORE

Former Bremerton City Council colleagues Faye Flemister and Roy Runyon, who are both vying for the seat to represent an expanded District 6 in this November’s Faye Flemister election, seemed hardpressed to say something nice about each other during an Eggs and Issues debate this week. The traditional “say-something-niceabout-your-opponent Roy Runyon question,” which comes just before closing remarks, seemed to temporarily flummox both candidates. “Ummm,” Flemister, who holds the seat and responded first, said, before a roar of laughter. “I just gotta do one, right? More laughter. “Mr. Runyon is persistent,” she said.

Runyon, who served on the council in the District 4 seat for five years up until January when he moved to the same newly expanded district that Flemister has represented for one term, also had trouble with the question. “The thing about Faye is she is a business owner,” he said. “She understands what it takes to run a business and I think that’s great. Talk about needing persistence and determination, you know, toughing things out. So, I really appreciate that about her. It really builds strength that comes from within deep inside.” Runyon, though, didn’t leave it there. “But we need more than that …” he said before being drowned out by the audience with a mixture of moans and laughter. While the tail end of the debate was the most obvious example of the chilly relationship between the candidates, it was far from Tuesday’s only example. They seemed incapable, in fact, of even being able to look at one another. At one point, the candidates were asked about what city council members have endorsed each of them and how their colleagues would describe them.

“Anybody who really knows me, knows how I operate,” Runyon said. “I do my homework, I ask tough questions and I hold people accountable. People are intimidated by that. My fellow council members are intimidated by that. But that’s okay, I’m not there for them, I’m there for the citizens. I don’t go along to get along.” Runyon said he thinks his approach earns him respect, but underscored his point that people who aren’t adequately prepared to debate him end up getting intimidated. He said that the council needs leadership, “even if you sometimes have to drag them by the nose; they need to wake up.” Flemister, though, wasn’t having it. “I’m not intimidated by anybody,” she said. “I stand my own ground. I’m a big girl and can handle the tough questions. I’m endorsed by all of the city council and I do believe I have earned their respect as well as the administration’s respect.” When asked about legislation that each of them sponsored during their time on the council, the candidates continued to take See CANDIDATEs, A17

school districts By Seraine Page

The budget is looking a bit better this year for local school districts, but it still isn’t what either district would call ideal. The Bremerton School District met last Thursday to adopt their final budget. Although last year was worse financially for the Bremerton School District, this year isn’t fantastic by any stretch of the imagination. “Last year was worse. We’re a little better because we got some money from the state,” said Wayne Lindberg, director of finance and operations. “It’s still not what I’d consider a great

budget, but it is what it is.” Revenue for the 20132014 is expected to be right around $58.3 million with carryover and reserves. Expenditures will be hitting right around $56.4 million. The balance will be about $1.9 million, above the standard board policy of maintaining a 3 percent reserve Lindberg said. “We’re eating into our reserves a little bit,” he said. Compared to last year, the district had a difference of $131,125, which was the lowest it has been since 2010. Impacts on the new budget include sequestration reductions, pension See Budget, A17

United Way Golf Classic set for Sept. 13

Gold Mountain Golf Course will be the site for United Way’s First Annual Golf Classic on Sept. 13, United Way of Kitsap County Executive Director David Foote announced this week. “The United Way Golf Classic proceeds each year will go to help any organization in our community that is doing outstanding work to help people needing assistance or to help an organization in the development of programing that helps individuals and families be selfsufficient,” said Foote. This year the tournament is being held a Gold Mountain on the Olympic course and all of the proceeds will go to support the Kitsap Rescue Mission (KRM) in their efforts to build a shelter. Foote said the mission exists to assist the homeless and poor of Kitsap County. KRM has been providing food since its inception in 2009. In 2011 they took on a bigger role to meet the basic needs of shelter and safety. “It’s their dedication to help individuals through their Fresh Start Program and their determination to establish a homeless shelter that helped us choose KRM for this first year’s tournament grant,” Foote said. United Way Classic Tournament Team foursomes and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Registration fees for golfers are $125 and includes golf, cart, range, tee prizes lunch and dinner with a 1 p.m. shotgun start scramble format. For more information call Foote at 360-377-8505, or visit www.unitedwaykitsap. org and download the golf registration.

Choosing gun-free zones There’s a movement across the water in Seattle to allow business owners to post that they do not allow guns in their shops. The program, which is being promoted by Washington CeaseFire, a gun-control group, offers business owners a decal that they can post in their window which states that guns are not allowed inside. The gun-free zone idea is being backed by Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn who unveiled it this week. And as of midweek, more than two dozen businesses had requested decals. This follows an incident last year in Seattle where an armed man entered a coffee shop, the Cafe Racer, and killed employees and patrons. Cafe Racer has put up the new decal. The program also follows a “campaign” on Facebook to boycott Starbucks because it declined to prohibit guns in its locations, saying that it will follow open-carry laws in states such as in Washington, where open-carry is the law. Photos of morning coffee drinkers lined up outside Starbucks with their holsters and their guns showing are making the social media rounds. Naturally, this program has brought about a lot of discussion about whether it will make places safer. True Second Amendment followers think not. They say that anyone with a gun and with the intent of doing harm won’t be stopped by a simple sign in the window of a business. They also add that if there are no law-abiding citizens with guns in those businesses, there’ll be nobody to stop the triggerman. On the side of those who don’t favor guns in public places, Washington CeaseFire says this is a step toward making businesses safer. Having gun-free zones helps promote awareness that guns, even those carried by law-abiding citizens, can endanger the public. In Kitsap County, there have been incidents where guns have been fired in and near public businesses. Whether or not the program would make Kitsap County safer, no one can say for sure. But residents of Kitsap County, and the city of Bremerton, should have the opportunity to try it. Business owners here, like in Seattle, should have the option of putting a gun-free zone decal in their window, allowing customers to know there are no guns allowed inside. And ultimately every individual can decide for themselves whether to patronize those businesses.

Looking for a peaceful transition The search for a new Bremerton School District superintendent has begun. The passing of this torch is already on track to be less contentious and much more peaceful than the last time this occurred in 2009. In 2009, the environment surrounding the controversial departure of Superintendent Betty Hyde after her retire-andthen-rehire situation combined with her resignation under circumstances that were less than ideal had left the community torn apart and outraged. During this period of time, I joined with a group of concerned citizens and parents. We began to attend all of the open public meetings associated with the school board and the district that we could. Many of us began serving on the newly formed Superintendent Search Task Force and the district’s combined Finance Committee. It was not an easy time following a school board that appeared to be at war with itself. A nearly constant stream of executive sessions were occurring and all of it was kept fully away from the public. A police report was even filed regarding one of the more

Everything Bremerton

Colleen Smidt trict and observed by community members. A paid consultant firm was hired to conduct the search and Superintendent Flip Herndon was the eventual selection. I wish Flip Herndon well in his new position with the Seattle School District. He has done some good things for this district. The diversity of the programs that are offered within the district now serves a variety of students and their learning needs. I encourage the community to

make their thoughts known during this next selection process. I encourage the district to make the process as transparent and inclusive to the community as it can. I suggest that the district look at the talent it has from within. The district should look at talent with established connections to this community before they even begin to consider going outside of the area for someone who may or may not choose to live and/or fully invest themselves and their family in all aspects of Bremerton. The student population of Bremerton is looking to the district and the community to assist in making the best leadership decision possible. The first day of school in Bremerton is Sept. 4.

victory. Rather, they expose a damning problem the incoming leader inherits: Washington Republicans too often allow the personal to become political and it impedes the party’s accomplishments. Paul Elvig of Everett, a former Snohomish County Republican Party chairman, recently stepped to the sidelines after half-a-century on the front lines of partisan battles. He characterized Republicans’ challenge this way: “They need to learn to like each other and not be suspect of each other’s motives.” Democrats, on the other hand, grin and bury it. Party members do get frustrated with antics of their chairman, Dwight Pelz. And lawmakers and influence peddlers of the Democratic stripe were flummoxed by Inslee on many occasions. But if any are worried about the governor’s vulnerability three-and-a-half years from now, they aren’t going to pipe it out to the public. Such self-inflicted damage would be tougher to overcome than an attack by a political opponent. They know unity right up through election time — even if some Democrats do so with gritted teeth — pays better dividends. Change takes time. As Inslee vacations with re-election far from his thoughts, Republicans are getting to ready to make a decision with Nov. 8, 2016, foremost in their minds.

Blackberry Festival coming Labor Day weekend By Seraine Page

Rain or shine, the Bremerton Blackberry Festival is going to happen. The event is in its 24th year of Labor Day festivities that includes food, music and lots of blackberries. Starting Aug. 31, the festival will kick off at 10 a.m.; admission is free and will be at the Louis Mentor Boardwalk in downtown Bremerton. With 130 vendors — no two are the same — Blackberry Festival Director Carol Atkinson knows that there’s something for everyone. As director of the event for the last 24 years, she’s seen the festival expand beyond everyone’s expectations, especially since the famous Seattle Music & Arts Festival, Bumbershoot, is the same weekend. Although it is hard to take attendance because the event is free, Atkinson said that from her information gathered by security, the crowds are estimated to be between 20,000 and 25,000 people over a three-day period. “It’s just grown tremendously over the past few years,” she said. “I think the reason is because it’s close to home for a lot of people and it’s free of charge … in a short area, they can see a whole lot of different things.” By different, Atkinson means the

creativeness vendors have shown in using the dark purple berry. There’s the standard blackberry pie and blackberry cinnamon rolls. For those looking for a sugar rush, the blackberry slug — a maple bar made with blackberry filling and whipped cream — will hit the spot. Adventurous souls may want to try the lemonade, tamales and sausage infused with the juicy berry flavor. There will also be the blackberry wine which “sells out every year” and a new addition for wine connoisseurs will be the Blackberry Dessert Wine. Sampling tastes will be offered for 25 cents each. Traditional fare will also be available, including hot dogs, corn dogs, barbecue ribs and corn on the cob. Ethic foods will be sold as well, including gyros, Indian tacos and burritos, spring rolls, chow mein and the like. There will be a variety of places for attendees to sit to enjoy the weather and music, which will include musical guests like Europa, KoKoJo, among others. Headliners include Jr. Cadillac, Mia Vermillion and the Navy Band Northwest “Passage”. In addition to relaxing events for adults, a children’s area will be set up on Second Street with bouncy houses, comedians, magicians and an area for children to play with chalk. Pony

rides will also be available. “A lot of people come because their kids have never been able to ride on a pony,” said Atkinson. “I think it’s a really neat experience and it’s the last festival of the summer before the kids go back to school.” On Saturday, parents are invited to the Bremerton National Airport for a car show and Fly-in that goes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with special events for children ages 8 through 17. Airplane rides will be available for free by the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 406 for children. A shuttle will operate between 10:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. with departures from the ferry terminal on the hour. The fare is $2 each way for ages 8 and older. The festival is as equally exciting for the vendors who participate and get to meet new customers and community leaders. Vendor Amy Jablonski of Amy’s Decadent Chocolates has been a part of the festival for the last six years, selling her melt-in-your-mouth goodies to those with a sweet tooth. “It was kinda my first festival that I did really well at,” she said. It was after her first Bremerton Blackberry Festival that she knew her business would thrive because of the feedback she received from the crowds. Now, Jablonski receives requests for her blackberry caramels starting in June.

She tells her fans that they must wait until her appearance at the festival for the treat. Along with her beloved blackberry caramels, Jablonski will offer blackberry caramel apples, regular caramel apples, blackberry rocky road fudge and blackberry marshmallows during the event. When asked how she keeps her sticky treats from melting, Jablonski laughed a bit. Because she’s on the water side where there’s a breeze, the temperatures aren’t too dangerously high to melt her product, she said. “We’ve just figured how to stay out of the sun …. We pray a lot,” she said. “No 100 degree weather. That’s all I pray for.” On the last day of the festival, the community will also have an opportunity to give back during “Walk Me Home,” a family-friendly walk to “burn off some of those blackberry calories and raise awareness for a worthy cause,” states the festival website. The funds support the Foster Parents Association of Washington State and provides support for caregivers. Registration starts at 9 a.m. at booth 64 on the boardwalk. The route starts at the main stage, circles Evergreen Rotary Park and comes back to the festival by lunch time. Prizes will be awarded at 4 p.m. for the top five

fundraisers. For questions, attendees are encouraged to stop by the Berry Central Sales booth for information. The 2013 Blackberry Festival attire, including the popular “I was Berried” T-shirt will be available in infant to adult sizes, Atkinson said. The best place to park is at the Park and Ride at the S-4 parking lot at Olympic College at 16th Street and Warren Avenue. The shuttle is $2 each way. Additionally, there are more than 2,000 parking spaces available on the street or in public lots. Diamond Parking locations are also donating $1 of the daily fee paid to the festival, states the Blackberry Festival website. The Port Orchard foot ferry will also depart every half hour from Port Orchard and every quarter hour from Bremerton.

Blue Star Banners still bring tears to her eyes By Leslie Kelly

Don’t talk to Lynette George about the Blue Star Banner program unless you can handle a few tears. While many people can drive past Blue Star Banners throughout Kitsap County and not think anything about them, George knows all of them and the stories behind them. George, a mother of two sons who served in the military, is the powerhouse behind the program. It began with a trip to California in 2005. “My sons were both in Iraq for the second time each,” she said. “My daughter-in-law and I went to California to visit a battle buddy (friend) of my son’s who had just returned. We planned a trip to take him to Universal Studios to celebrate that he was back. “When we drove down his street to pick him up, I saw that the street was lined with these beautiful banners. I got very emotional and it hit me hard.” After that trip, she was determined to bring banners to Kitsap County. She researched the program and found that in most places it was sponsored by cities, but she knew there weren’t extra funds in the budgets of local cities to buy the banners. So she formed a nonprofit. “It took a year and a half to get it going,” she said. “But I was able to get a graphic designer to design the banners and I built a website.”

She applied and received four grants from the Kitsap County Foundation. Other donations just started coming in. The first banner went up in 2006. To date, there are 250 Blue Star Banners hanging throughout Kitsap County honoring those who served. There are 16 Gold Star Banners honoring those who were killed in action. The blue and gold stars denote the program that began in World War I and continued in World War II where blue stars were hung in the windows of homes where someone was serving in war. Gold stars were hung if their loved one was killed during the war. Each banner is 6-foot long and costs about $350. The banners were originally hung in Silverdale and Bremerton, but the program has grown and now there are banners in Poulsbo, Port Orchard, and in Port Angeles, and are spreading to Port Townsend, Chimicum

and in Mason County. Banners are traditionally hung in the cities where the military member grew up. Blue Star Banners usually hang from three to five years, and sometimes the person who the banner honors will request to have the banner taken down once he or she returns from serving overseas, or their service in the military ends. Gold Star banners hang indefinitely unless the family requests otherwise. Since the program gained attention, donations have continued to come in and now there are annual fund-raising events to support the program. George also discovered that many times, families of those serving want to sponsor and pay for a banner to honor their loved one who is serving. Because of that, the nonprofit is financially stable, she said. “We do come across times when a family wants to have a banner, but can’t afford it,” she said. “That’s where we come in.” She also uses some of the funds to market the program through advertising, on the website and on Facebook so that everyone knows about the banners. Photos of all the banners are on the website and family members are welcome to share stories on the Facebook page. Stories of those who are honored with Gold Star Banners are posted on the website. For each banner, there is s story of a military member

who served. Among them is Sean and Allie Brazes. Their banner is attached to the power pole at the corner of Randall Way and Kitsap Mall Boulevard. Allie has a Blue Star and Sean has a Gold Star. “They didn’t grow up here,” George said. “But they served here and they met and were married here. Their banner hangs at that corner because they were engaged at Applebee’s across the street.” Sean died from a gunshot wound May 30, 2012. The following January, his wife came to see their banner hung. Another banner with a story is the banner than hung at the corner of Randall Way and Bucklin Hill Road. It was purchased by George’s family to honor Jeremy Seelig, a service member they didn’t know but who deserved a banner. “It wasn’t until years later that I got a call from someone who said ‘I’m Jeremy Seelig and I want to know if I can have my banner.’ “ Seelig had seen George’s truck which has advertisements on it for the banner program and jotted down her phone number. He thought his banner should come down because he had gotten out of the military. She told him that he could have his banner and that it was her family that had sponsored it. He now is an EMT and works in the Bremerton shipyard and helps George promote the banner program.

“He’s such a wonderful person,” she said. “He helps watch out for all the banners and lets me know if there are any banners that have faded or have torn, so that we can replace them.” Seelig said it meant a lot to have his banner hanging while he was in the service. “Right before we deployed, they came to where we were and had us sign all the papers so that our banners could go up,” he said. “I was just a 20-year-old kid and I was scared. Somehow, it made me feel better that that banner would be there for my friends and family to see while I was away.” When he came home and left the service, he decided his banner should come down to make room for another of someone who was serving. As for ladders and putting up the banners, that’s where George draws the line. She said Wave Cable hangs all the banners without charging the nonprofit for their work.

George’s sons, Christopher Weimar, 28, of Seabeck who served in the Army, and Wayne George, 30, of Longview, who was a Marine, both suffered psychological and physical injuries at war. They both have service-related disabilities. But George, who served in the Navy from 1981 to 1985, considers herself lucky. “My sons came home,” she said. “I’m just so lucky.” She had an experience while they were away, when a man dressed in a suit driving a black SUV came up her driveway while she was out raking her yard. “I fell to my knees,” she said. “I thought ‘I’ve lost one of my boys.’ After that, I was just so appreciative of everything.” It’s with that spirit that she says she will continue to make time for the banner program as long as military families want to have banners hung.

Silverdale restauranteur offers Indian cuisine By Leslie Kelly

Ramesh Kumar is the kind of businessman who believes in giving back. And he’s a strong supporter of First Responders including firefighters, police officers, sheriff ’s officers and those in the military. Kumar is the owner of the Gandhi Cuisine of India restaurant at 9621 Mickelberry Road SW. He opened the restaurant and lounge in 2001 and recently decided that on the last Monday of each month, any First Responder (fire, police, sheriff ’s officer, EMT) active military member, veteran and their families can come and eat for free. “Just about everywhere you go you see signs that say ‘Support Our Troops,’ “ he said. “But just saying it is not enough. We have to do something more.” As a businessman with a wife and three children at home, he’s not rolling in dough. But he decided that one thing he could do is share the talent he does have, and that’s his restau-

rant. Kumar came to the United States from his homeland of India at age 16. He came from an upper class family and his father worried that Kumar might be a target because his father was politically active. So he sent him to live with his uncle in Norway. Within a very short time, Kumar decided that living with his uncle would not work out, so he moved to Los Angeles. There, he was on his own. He started washing dishes in a restaurant and remembers sleeping in a park, until he had enough money to rent an apartment. Within a few years, he was able to open his own restaurant. He liked Los Angeles, but there was a lot of competition. A friend from Seattle told him he should open a restaurant in the Silverdale area because there were no Indian restaurants. So Kumar decided to check it out. “I was driving up the highway and all I could see was trees,” he said. “I thought my friend was playing a joke on me.”

But soon he found the heart of Silverdale, near Kitsap Mall and found just the place for his restaurant. He moved his wife, who is originally from Virginia, and his one-yearold daughter to Kitsap and began making plans to open his restaurant. After months of planning, and relocating one of his best chefs to Silverdale, everything was ready for the opening, which was slated for the second week in September 2001. Then September 11 happened. “It changed everything,” he said. “People seemed to fear me. Sometimes they would say things, and we had knocks on our door in the middle of the night.” Kumar didn’t know what to do. He worried that opening the restaurant in an area where there was so much military wasn’t now going to work, because of what happened on Sept. 11. He knew he wasn’t Middle Eastern. But, he said, he was dark skinned and at that time, many Americans feared anyone who was foreign. “I talked to my wife and

Ramesh Kumar has had his Silverdale Indian restaurant, Gandhi Cuisine, for 12 years. thought about it very seriously,” he said. “I knew I liked Silverdale and I knew there were very good people here. So I decided to go ahead with my plans.” He opened his restaurant a month later in October and has never been sorry. “This city has always made me feel happy,” he said. “After many years of being here, I love it more and more everyday.” In fact, the restaurant in Silverdale has done so well that he opened a second restaurant on Bainbridge Island in 2006, named Spice Route, and a third restaurant in Puyallup in 2008 named Karma. “These are not like franchise places,” he said. “Each place has its own chef and that chef makes each dish his own way.” That’s why each restaurant has its own name, he said. But his policy is the same at each. He wants the restaurants to support the local community. So, he offers the free military meals in Puyallup which is close to Joint Base Lewis McChord. And on Bainbridge, where there isn’t a lot of military, he offers special days when WE HAVE T H E

he gives half of the day’s proceeds to the local high school band. Kumar’s children now are ages 13, 11 and 6 and attend public schools in Kitsap County. He tries to spend as much time as he can with them, but the restaurant business is demanding. And he often travels to Puyallup to work at Karma. “Sometimes my children say they would like to have me at home more,” he said. “But I try to help them understand that I am working hard so that they can have a good life. And I don’t mean things. I mean an opportunity to get a good education.” Kumar, himself, never finished high school, although he has hopes of someday getting his high school diploma. As a fifth grader, his father sent him to join the military of India, but soon after his grandmother came and got him, telling him he was too young. “I was the only son of her son,” he said. “She wanted the family to go on and she feared I would die.” His respect for the military came at a young age.

“Even when I was a child and saw soldiers in India, I wanted to shake their hands,” he said. “That stayed with me when I came to the United States.” In fact, in Los Angeles, he spoke to a recruiter and hoped to join the U.S. military. But his health prevented that. So, now, as a U.S. citizen, with a wife who also is a U.S. citizen and his children who were born in the U.S., he considers members of the military as people who should be honored in word and deed. “When I decided to take my citizenship test, it wasn’t just something I did,” he said. “I thought a lot about it. It wasn’t just an exchange of papers. I knew after going back to India to visit that I didn’t belong there any longer. It is my home, but it’s not home. And I knew if I was going to live in America, I needed to be a citizen. I started studying.” He said living in the U.S. made him a “better human.” No one ever treated me badly because I was just a dishwasher,” he said. “In India, it wouldn’t be that way. There is so much corruption there. Here, people are able to see who you really are and give you a chance.” That’s why he will keep his restaurant going and honor firefighters, law enforcement personnel, EMTs and the military with free meals as long as he can. “I’ll do it every month until I run out of money,” he said.

Changes coming to Little Nickel delivery Beginning in September, Sound Publishing, Inc. will combine the strength of its community newspaper readership and home delivery with the respected classified content and brand recognition of its Little Nickel products. Little Nickel’s advertising will be delivered within the pages of the community newspaper products. “Our Nickel advertising clients will certainly see benefit of having their advertising message delivered directly to homes. And our readers will no longer have to remember to pick up a Little Nickel at a rack. This change just makes sense,” said Gloria Fletcher, Sound Publishing President. Little Nickel rack distribution will be eliminated. Sound Publishing has established five zones in King, Snohomish and Kitsap counties to give people a wide range of options for their advertising. Each zone has a circulation between 50,000 and 80,000. Advertisers will be able to place ads in any or all zones and/or in individual Sound Publishing newspapers. As part of the business change, the Little Nickel offices in Everett, Tacoma and Portland will be closed. Many Little Nickel employees will be retained and will move into other Sound Publishing offices throughout the Puget Sound area.

Silverdale chamber sets business forums The Silverdale Chamber of Commerce and PMR Coaching & Consulting will continue with its series, “Kitsap Business Forum,” a monthly business education session. “We have had some great success so far this year with the Kitsap Business Forum and are now taking the next few forums to a whole new level,” said Kathleen Knuckey, executive director for the chamber. “The drivers in our community are local business leaders, whether they manage a business or own it. We want to provide them the tools that drive success.” Experts will present information on their topic and give easily implementable strategies and suggestions. Questions will follow. Topics currently scheduled for 2013: Sept. 9: “Creating a Rockstar Team” with local executive coaches Dan Weedin, Nick Frisch and Dave Mitchell Oct. 8: “Creating a Referral-Based Business” with Frank Ellerbroek, sales manager of Network Home Loans Nov. 12: “Getting it Done” by Mayor Patty Lent and local CEOs Dec. 10: “Sending Effective and Appropriate Communication” in the Digital World, speaker to be announced. Morgan Stanley Wealth Management will host the forums on the Cavalon Building’s 3rd floor, 2011 NW Myhre Road, Silverdale, and Panera Bread will provide fresh bagels and coffee for each meeting. More information on the forums and the speakers is available at the Silverdale Chamber at or or by calling 360-692-6800.

Website changes on the way for our papers The websites for the Central Kitsap Reporter and the Bremerton Patriot are getting a fresh look that will help readers get faster access to local news — and more of it. The new crisp-and-clean design makes space for more stories and photographs on the newspaper’s home page, and also offers easier access to readers on-the-go. The new look will go live on Aug. 27. The home page is topped by a new navigation bar which boasts a quick-glance box for current weather conditions. Also at the top: Icons for mobile applications and social media, so readers can quickly share stories and news with others.

BUSINESS Briefs | The website will continue to use the “river of news” format — with the most current content appearing at the top of the home page — though top stories will feature larger photographs, plus larger headlines and summaries. As more stories and features are published each day, older stories will carry smaller headlines and flow toward the bottom of the homepage. The box for “trending stories” — articles that are connecting with readers and being shared and read more often than other content — will also be repositioned on the home page; higher, for faster access for readers. Online readers should notice more news on the website’s front page. “We’re actually fitting more content on the page than before,” said Seth Long, director of digital media for Sound Publishing. Stories will also be easier to share. Underneath each story byline, readers will find options for emailing the article, print-

Page A9 ing a copy or sending a letter to the editor about the topic. At the bottom of each story page, readers will also find links to related articles, as well as trending stories. “We’ve improved the presentation of the story; the typography is better, it’s easier to read, it’s easier to find sharing tools and it’s easier to find related and trending content,” Long said. The website update is being launched across most of Sound Publishing’s titles, though the websites for paid-access newspapers will share a slightly different makeover. It’s the first update to Sound Publishing websites — which boast 2.2 million unique visitors and 11.5 million page views a month — since 2010.

Senior visits NBA Basketball Camps for summer break By Seraine Page

Several years ago, Wayne Ayers would have never dreamed of being involved in NBA basketball camps. He played basketball for the pure fun of it, but he never imagined it would take him to places like Philadelphia or New York. This summer, Ayers was given the opportunity to attend the 2013 Knicks Summer Basketball Camp and the 76ers Basketball Camp in two different cities to work on his skills. “It was a fun learning experience,” Ayers said of the camps. “I was really happy.” His older sister, Ke’Andrea Ayers, who works as a Production Coordinator for MTV, decided to send him off to the camps this summer to improve his skills and what she sees as his raw talent for the sport. “I visited my brother in April for the first time in two years and he just seemed unhappy. I know basketball is the main thing that keeps him off the streets and focused so I wanted to do something nice for him. When I got back to New York, I just worked more and picked up some side production gigs

Wayne Ayers holds up certificates he won at NBA camps. to save money for his camp,” said Ke’Andrea Ayers. “My dad also helped me pay for it. I was originally going to put him in just the Knicks day camp, but after the Knicks was paid for I came across information on the 76ers overnight camp. It looked amazing.” Early in his life, his sister could see the passion that drove her brother to play basketball. Even as a short 7 year old, she knew her brother was in his environment when he played the game. Life wasn’t always easy for their family, and her persistence of keeping her brother working hard and pursuing his passion has been a focus for her since she left home.

In 2005, Ayers was in fifth grade when he and his sisters and mother ended up homeless. His mother’s illness of Sarcoidosis had left her unable to work, and she had nowhere to take her family. After a month of living in a car, the Ayers found an apartment. Once the family settled into a regular routine again, Ayers became heavily involved in basketball in middle school. His sisters ended up taking college classes, and left the nest to pursue dreams as far away as New York and London. The positive drive from their mother is what kept them going, the Ayers siblings said. “It got us closer,” Ayers said

of the situation. “We had a close relationship.” Ke’Andrea said she believes her brother had it the worst because he dealt with rough living conditions the longest. She thinks that even the darkest days have sculpted her brother’s attitude and drive to continue playing basketball. After their parents divorced, the joy was drained out of their childhood, she said. “He hasn’t really experienced any of the joyful things of having a childhood,” she said. “The homeless situation was a small part of it. Just him growing up with one parent, one income and not having the basic things in life like furniture or a bed to sleep on. The only thing he’s ever had to take his mind off of things is basketball.” Even though he has an obvious knack for the game now, the 17-year-old senior said it wasn’t always easy. “It was difficult,” he said of learning how to play. “All my friends were good at it, and I was terrible.” After two years of hard work and practice, Ayers became good enough to get involved with the Bremerton Wildcats where he averages 10 to 12 points per game as a small for-

ward. He was 15 when he joined, and he hasn’t looked back since. As a basketball player at Bremerton High School, where he also plays the small forward position and averages about the same amount of points as he does for the Wildcats. Throughout the summer, he’s stayed involved with the Wildcats and the Kitsap Admirals, which means he has practice or a game every day of the week -- a time-consuming endeavor for a young man who only has a few more weeks before he starts school again. But he wouldn’t have it any other way. Entering his last year of school, Ayers has high hopes for his future. His aim is to score a basketball scholarship and attend UCLA or Rutgers. He also plans to study sports management in college, a goal that makes his older sister proud. “He already has a list of colleges he wants to apply to and he knows what he wants to major in. I wasn’t even thinking that deep into college at his age. He doesn’t let his past get to him. He only focuses on the future and that makes me happy,” his sister said. “He knows there’s people who have had it worse.

I really enjoyed taking him to camp. He made me so proud and at both camps; he was a top player. I felt like I was rooting for my son.” The Bremerton student said his favorite part of the camps included learning leadership skills and taking in new pivoting and defense styles. Hearing from college coaches and meeting other kids from different areas was another highlight of the two camps that took up a good chunk of his summer. Ayers said he spent a lot of time learning how to do drills and team activities. Free time was also a part of the 76ers camp where he could spend time swimming, paint balling or watching movies before participating in another team activity. His favorite was the 76ers camp where he said it felt more like a college setting. “You got to stay a week in a dorm, so it was more like college life,” he said. The 76ers Basketball Camps was established in 1985 where 70,000 campers from more than 40 states and 40 See full countries come to story on the participate.

Area lights and sirens Aug. 17 — A Kitsap County Sheriff ’s officer was dispatched to SW Conifer Lane for an “unknown problem” at a residence. The investigation report states, “an out of breath female called 911 saying, ‘Step dad going crazy.’ The female told the call receiver she could not speak freely.” Two deputies arrived where they were greeted by children outside who said their mother needed help upstairs because she was having a panic attack. The mother was found lying on the floor on her side, “breathing heavily, gasping for air and shaking,” states the report. The deputy called for South Kitsap Fire and Rescue to come to the scene. The children relayed that their stepdad was upset and was getting “in their mother’s face” and “punched a hole in a wall.” The children ran into their mother’s bedroom to try and comfort her before he came in and pulled one daughter away from her mother. The mother told the girls to dial 911. Upon trying, the girls’ stepfather came into another bedroom and took away the cell phone. One tried calling on the house phone, but he took the phone away before running outside. After talking with police, it was clear the female was a victim of domestic violence from a previous marriage. The male was arrested for assault 4 DV, interfering with reporting of domestic violence and malicious mischief domestic violence. The male also tried giving a different account on the way to jail, the report states. His bail is set for $20,000. *** After noting a car driving up onto a sidewalk on E. Broad Street, a Washington State Patrol officer followed the vehicle and noticed it “struck the sidewalk three more times” before pulling the driver over. The officer noted “the driver had flushed face, watery bloodshot and droopy eyes,” states the report. The officer asked the driver where he was going and where he was coming from. The driver stated he was headed home from the Cloverleaf where he had “a couple beers” called “Irish Death and Ridge Top Red.” The driver agreed to field sobriety tests and stumbled upon exiting his vehicle, which he tried to use for balance. After several field sobriety

tests, the officer asked if the driver would take a preliminary breath test, to which he responded, “I guess so. I know that I had too much to drink. Now can I just walk home?” states the report. The officer told the driver he was not walking home. The breath test showed a sample of .146 alcohol content. The driver was arrested and read his Miranda Rights and was booked into Kitsap County Jail for DUI on Aug. 17. *** A 19-year-old man with a schizophrenic history was arrested in Seabeck on Aug. 16 for assault 4 domestic violence on his father. The father and son got into a dispute when the father asked his son to clean up “the mess he had made,” states the Certificate of Probable Cause report. The son then pushed his father, grabbed his wrist and put him in a headlock. The 54-year-old father’s shirt was ripped in the process. The officer noted no visible marks on the father. The father said his neck hurt and showed the officer the ripped t-shirt. The officer spoke with the son and asked him several questions and repeated the story his father had given. “He told me that he got mad because his father would not give him his medication and he needs to take his medication in the morning and at night. I asked him what was his medication for and he told me it is for his “mental problems,” states the report. The 19-year-old agreed to all statements and said he knew he did something wrong and “that he should not touch anyone,” states the report. He was arrested for “suspicious of assault 4th DV” and was handcuffed and read his Miranda Rights, which he claimed he understood. The officer stated in the report that the father said he “administers” the medication twice a day and had already given his son the medication, Ziprasidone, 80 mg, that morning. He was booked to the county jail where staff was “made aware of his medical condition,” states the report. His bail is set for $5,000. *** Aug. 18 — A 19-year-old man with a prior criminal history was arrested by the Bremerton Police Department for two counts of assault in the 3rd degree, possession/consumption of alcohol by a minor and two

warrants for a bail total of $145,000. The young man was found in an alley to the west of S. Lafayette Avenue in a car with a female with no lights on. The area is known for drug activity and vehicle prowling, states the report. After shining a spotlight on the vehicle for safety reasons, the officer noticed a male passenger “moving quickly” inside the vehicle. Upon reaching the vehicle, the officer noticed the passenger sweating when the weather was in the high 50s to low 60s. The officer spoke with the driver who said the two were “looking for a $20 bill the male had lost,” states the report. The driver stated the two were taking a break after the officer asked why they were not looking outside the vehicle. After asking for identification, the driver gave hers to the officer, but the passenger became disgruntled and demanded to know why the officer wanted it. The driver was asked to step outside the vehicle to chat with the officer. She offered up that the passenger had been drinking whiskey and that he was underage. The officer thought the minor looked familiar, but could not recall his name, states the report. Another officer arrived on scene to assist. After checking and locating information on the passenger, records showed two warrants, one including vehicle prowling 2nd degree. The officers advised Frederick C A Crawford to step out of the car as he was under arrest, but Crawford turned in his seat “as if he was not going to get out of the vehicle.” The second officer knew the passenger well and said he would “put up a fight.” Police asked for a second unit, the passenger “spun backwards and reached behind the seat” inside the car, states the report. Fearing a weapon would be in hand, a firearm was immediately directed at the passenger who was told to step out of the car once again. The passenger stiffened his body and fought with the officers, prompting one to pull a taser after officers were assaulted by the passenger. Backup was called to assist in arresting the passenger who was booked in the Kitsap County jail. Both officers sustained injuries including bloody knuckles, abrasions and facial pain from being struck by Crawford.

For Stennis sailors, this project was an opportunity to continue giving back to the local Kitsap County community, and to help a former sailor in need. “I like giving back,” said Information Systems Technician 1st Class William Acosta. “Habitat for Humanity gives me the opportunity to help, it is fun, and I get to see the results.” Habitat for Humanity is a national organization

but is managed by local communities. Each local branch is responsible for choosing deserving families, overseeing the project site, raising donations, and gathering volunteers. “Sailors are always more than welcome to participate,” said Robert Hammond, a retired Coast Guard captain and the Genaux project site manager. “They enjoy working hard and giving back.” A local Kitsap County

home takes close to seven months and $75,000 to build. Kitsap County’s branch has built more than 70 homes since 1990 and currently has 32 new projects scheduled.

Lost wedding band returned by strangers The story I’m about to tell you is hard for some people to believe. After hearing it, they ask a series of predictable questions: You hired these people, right? (Answer: No.) You knew them ahead of time? (Also, no.) Are you joking me? (No.) First, a little background. I met my husband, Dustin, when I was a baby. In fact, because my dad was deployed when I was born, I met Dustin before I met my dad seven months later. Our lives intersected multiple times throughout our childhood, but for 10 years, we didn’t see each other at all. Then, when I was 20, Dustin and I went out on

a date. We got married less swimming hole, an offshoot than two years later. of the Penobscot River, On July 17, 1999, I gave where the water churns and Dustin a a rope swing practical, hangs from a inexpensive tree. In three Navy Wise wedding months, band.

That was band slipped off his finger the day we took the kids to and disappeared into the Mt. Katahdin in northern foaming water. A wedding Maine to visit our favorite ring is just a piece of metal until that moment when it’s gone. As I cried on the banks of the river, Dustin rubbed my back and whispered into my hair, “We’ll buy a new ring before I leave, and someday, I’ll come back here and find the real one.” But in my heart I knew: the ring was gone. I wrote about the lost Patio Parties on the water at wedding band in a column a The Beachfront Martini Lounge week later, and when Dustin left for his deployment that November, he had a new, shiny wedding band on his finger. It wasn’t the worn and scratched one that had represented our love for more than a decade. Over time, I moved on and forgot about the ring. Thirteen months later, in 6pm to 10pm Every Friday September 2012, I received Food • Music • Drinks a cryptic message in my The Lounge is open until Midnight Stay & Enjoy Our Fire Pit!

me a call as we have found a wedding band and would like you to identify it. Zac Canders.” I hate to admit that at first I was skeptical. I had dark thoughts about Greg and Zac, whom I didn’t know. Were they tricking me? Did they have some kind of motive? Did they want something from me? Because it didn’t seem possible they could find the ring. And why would they look for it anyway? I agreed to meet Greg and Zac at a local parking lot. Greg, a professional diver, told me that my column had touched him. In fact, he had saved the clipping and had it in his shirt pocket. That morning, he and his son had decided to drive 80 miles out of their way, with all of their gear, to find the swimming hole I had hastily described and look for the ring. Greg reached into his other pocket and pulled out a small plastic bag. While my husband was still eight time zones away, my hand trembled. Greg opened the bag and put Dustin’s ring, tarnished and spotted from 13 months under water, in my palm. I slipped the ring onto my right hand. Greg and Zac wanted nothing in return, though we had them to “Dinner with the Smileys” and when Dustin came home from deployment three months later, he could hardly wait to shake their hand. When Dustin held his ring again, it was with the same amount of awe that I had in the parking lot that day. But when I asked him, “It hardly seems real, does it?” Dustin said without hesitation, “I always knew we’d find it.”

Capt. James Jones, Commanding Officer of the Naval Intermediate Maintenance Facility, makes his way through the side boys after relieving Capt. Chuck Baker, former Commanding Officer of the Naval Intermediate Maintenance Facility on board Naval Base Kitsap Bangor.

Change of command at Bangor

On Aug. 16, Captain James H. Jones relie ve d C apt ain Charles E. A. Baker as Commanding Officer, Naval Intermediate Maintenance Facility (IMF), Pacific Northwest, during a Change of Command Ceremony held at Naval Base Kitsap Bangor. Captain Stephen Williamson, Commander, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and IMF, was the guest speaker. “Chuck absolutely was the leader of the IMF but he will be the first to say as we all do here in the Northwest, it is truly a team effort supporting these submarines,” Capt. Williamson said. “Team Bangor is about the warfighter first and always. He will also tell you that he had a great team of Sailors and civilians that did the heavy lifting. While there is no doubt that this military civilian team that exists here is second to none, and they truly are the stars, a ship must have a captain at its helm and the IMF had a great one.” Captain Jones comes from Norfolk, Va., where he served as Deputy Commander, Norfolk Naval Shipyard and Commanding Officer of the Enlisted Element at Norfolk Naval Shipyard. He entered the Navy in 1978 and was commissioned in 1987 under the Limited Duty Officer Program. He comes to the IMF with 12 years submarine repair experience and having served

more than 20 years on aircraft carriers. “It is with great pride that I take command today,” said Capt. Jones. “The two greatest challenges we face as we step into the future are to one, search out and embrace new technologies to perform more robust repairs to the systems onboard the Ohio Class Ballistic Missile Submarines, ensuring mission accomplishment until the new class of Ballistic Missile Submarine comes on line. And two, we need to develop the infrastructure and Sailor/employee level of knowledge to support the unique systems and life cycle maintenance plan for the next class of Ballistic Missile Submarines.”

On May 15, 2003, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and the Naval Intermediate Maintenance Facility, Pacific Northwest (located at Bangor, Bremerton and Everett) consolidated into one maintenance activity - creating PSNS & IMF. The consolidation improves fleet readiness by allowing the Navy to accomplish the highest priority, real-time ship maintenance requirements while achieving the most maintenance effort possible for the tax dollar. The Commanding Officer, IMF Bangor, reports to Captain Stephen Williamson, Commander, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility.

Several wine festival attendees found that cupcakes are among the sweet treats that go well with wine. More than 750 people attended the event last Saturday on the waterfront in downtown Bremerton.

Kitsap Wine Festival draws large crowd for sipping and savoring By Jessica Ginet

Sip and savor: a showcase of northwest wines, beer and food comprised the Fifth Annual Kitsap Wine Festival at Harborside Fountain Park last Saturday. The event, benefitting the Harrison Medical Center Foundation, raised $20,000 in tickets sales and attendance was up, with 750 people attending. Attendees were welcome to meander around the park, located along the waterfront adjacent to the Bremerton Ferry Terminal. Three local breweries had beer on tap and 27 wineries poured a wide selection of varietals. Harrison CEO Scott Bosch attended, as did Port of Bremerton Commissioner Axel Strakeljahn. “This is a general fundraiser for the Harrison Foundation,” said Bosch. “It raises money for projects, continuing education for staff and non-budgeted equipment.” “It’s just a great cause and a great way to return something to the community,” said Strakeljahn. “I think it’s the best event in Kitsap County, and I’m happy to

contribute to the Harrison Foundation.” Anthony’s at Sinclair Inlet offered ahi nachos and Minder Meats made pulled pork sliders to go along with the wines. Other savory treats included smoked black cod with pineapple and mango, courtesy of the Kitsap Conference Center, and a chilled crab and shrimp crostini from the Boat Shed Restaurant. For dessert aficionados, Bremerton Bar & Grill had petite blackberry cobbler with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream and Toro Lounge presented a rich orange cognac-infused chocolate mousse. Offerings from Amy’s Decadent Chocolates, Bella Bella Cupcakes and Carter’s Chocolates made for a sweet end to a well-attended event. “The camaraderie is great,” said Mayor Patty Lent. “ This is more of a highbrow event — the brew fest in July is more relaxing.” Ronna Roske, from the Illahee area, said, “This event was on our to-do list. So we’re to-doing it.” Roske attended the event with her extended family. She and her group unanimously agreed that their favorite sip was the 2009 Dark

Star from Kana Winery. The Minder Meat pulled pork slider was their favorite savor. The Kitsap Wine Festival began in 2009. and is organized by the Kitsap Conference Center, Harrison Medical Foundation and Peha Productions.

Shooting Range




sters’ trip to the range all the more unique. “This may be their one and only opportunity to fire a weapon in their lifetimes,” he said. Battin said many of the kids, partly for that reason, often get to Bremerton and ask about visiting the range. “Over the years, it’s been passed down from kid to kid so they usually ask if they’ll get to go to the gun range,” he said. When the students arrived at the range Monday evening they signed in and were outfitted with ear and eye protection. From there, they headed out to a shooting area apart from the main section of the club where they met Marcus Carter, a range officer who went over the ground rules, or “commandments,” for safely handling and firing the weapons. The first rule, Carter said, is to treat all guns as though they are loaded. Rule Number Two is be careful where you point the weapon. “Never allow the muzzle to point at anything you don’t want to destroy,” Carter said. “That bullet, when it comes out of there, is going very fast and it will destroy paper targets and it will kill people.”

different approaches. “I haven’t sponsored any legislation,” Flemister said. “As far as helping the city, one council member, unless you have respect from your professional colleagues, you can bring anything you want across the table. But it takes the full council and administration to get things done. So, I haven’t done anything by myself and I don’t take credit for anything by myself because I’m not accomplishing anything by myself.” Flemister later talked about working with others to minimize the number of jobs lost during her first budget cycle on the council, working through the contentious effort to locate a methadone clinic in downtown Bremerton, the creation of Lillian A. Walker Park and other proud accomplishments. Runyon, meanwhile, agreed it is often difficult to line up people and votes, but cited several examples, including his successful effort to get the council to reduce the mayor’s salary. Runyon also talked about developing the first energy conservation plan of any municipality in the county shortly after taking office and trying to get legislation passed to allow residents to have four chickens within the city limits. He said the latter effort took eight months and the threat of a citizens initiative to make it a reality. He also noted that he helped restore $15,000 in funding to the Kitsap Economic Development Alliance and got money made available for the Kitsap Entrepreneurial Center and the Bremerton Farmers Market. Flemister and Runyon


fund increases, declining enrollment, among other issues. Despite issues out of the district’s control — like enrollment numbers — board member Scott Rahm praised Lindberg for his efforts on working at the budget. “I think you’ve been doing a good job controlling it from a budget standpoint,” Rahm told Lindberg. Boa rd President Carolynn Perkins also agreed, but she said that the budget must be balanced by next year in order to avoid fiscal problems. “We really have to start watching what the state does in January, February and March,” she said. “We have very little reserves to work with next year,” Lindberg agreed. “There’s still a lot of ‘ifs’ out there when you’re dealing with this kind of budget.” Each board member took part in roll call to approve the budget. When it came to board member David Rubie, he heaved a huge sigh before agreeing with his board members by saying, ‘aye.’ “I wasn’t really sure how I was going to vote when I came tonight,” he said after the meeting. “I was really torn.” Central Kitsap Central Kitsap School District (CKSD) board members met Aug. 14 to

Bremerton Central Lions Club member Bob Battin shows Gehshi Toyota how to load bullets before teaching him how to shoot an AR-15. Carter also cautioned the kids about keeping the weapons low and not aiming or shooting over and above the high dirt mound at the end of the range because there are homes, a park and a school in the area. “Rule Number Three is your finger cannot be inside the trigger guard until your sights are lined up on the target and you’re ready to shoot,” Carter continued. And shoot they did. All three of the kids got to fire a .22 pistol and rifle, a .38 revolver, a .45, a lever action .38 rifle and

discuss various district matters, including the final 2013-2014 budget. “When we started looking at this budget, the hope was that we would have minimal reductions,” said David McVicker, assistant superintendent for business and operations. “That the enrollment or the state dollars would allow us to not have to do what we have done for the last seven years in a row now which is cut programs and people and edges and all those things.” “It’s my first black (number),” said McVicker of the $68,111 balance. Although relatively excited about the prospect of not going into major debt for the upcoming school year, McVicker added, “It’s not very big.” All board members were present for the meeting, including the new superintendent, Hazel Bauman to take a look ahead at the next year’s budget. With issues like struggling enrollment numbers and federal government money not always coming through, the district is taking cautious steps to how money is spent, McVicker said. When Bauman mentioned the idea of working hard to secure K-2, K-5 and even possibly a K-6 reading curriculum, she knew that getting extra money for reading programs likely wouldn’t and couldn’t happen until the following year. “I really want to urge the board to consider K-5 and if not even K-6 in a reading curriculum,” she said. “My

an AR-15. All three youngsters said they enjoyed the experience and would gladly do it again. “That’s more hard than I had expected,” Toyota said. Matsutani said she was surprised by the weight of the guns and various kicks that each one produced when firing. “It is very heavy,” she said, throwing her shoulders back to mimic the kick of the weapons.

preliminary assessment of the resources that we have for this area is that it’s a need and that we put this into next year’s budget … I’d love to do it this year, but I just don’t think we can.” Bauman estimated the cost of implementing a reading curriculum would cost between $500,000 to $1 million. Funding increases impacted several areas of the new budget, allowing the district to focus on increasing transportation, materials, supplies and operating costs, full-day kindergarten for Woodlands and

class size support for K-1 at Woodlands, Jackson Park and Clear Creek Elementary Schools. Additional impacts on the $115.6 million budget include an increase in retirement costs by 2.34 percent, declining enrollment and federal sequestration reductions. However, savings by making recommended budget adjustments such as position reductions and energy conservations will save the district nearly $380,000 for the 2013-2014 school year. The final budget will be adopted on Aug. 28.

also differed when it came to answering questions about government transparency and accountability. Flemister said she thought it was important for voters to weigh in on an amendment to the city’s charter that would allow the council to meet outside of Bremerton’s city limits. Runyon, on the other hand, urged voters to reject the proposal. Flemister said that the city’s website, procedure for public records requests and public meeting structure lend themselves to open government. “I think we’re already focused on being transparent,” she said. Runyon, though, said that a voter-approved reduction in the number of council districts, disbanding a parking committee and allowing the council to meet outside of Bremerton all lead to reduced transparency. If re-elected, Flemister said some of her biggest priorities will be continuing work at Lillian Walker Park, maintaining a sustainable budget and road maintenance. “I intend to win the election to continue what I have started,” she said. “I think the city council needs my voice and I think I bring integrity and honesty and transparency to that board. I think I’m a value player. In order for this game to be won, if we can call it a game, I need to be one of the starting players.” Runyon also expressed optimism about his chances in and laid out four pledges. He said he will improve Bremerton’s quality of life; enhance the business climate; control the cost of government; and champion open, transparent and accountable government. “I do my homework and I hold people accountable,” he said. “If that frightens you, don’t vote for me.”

Volunteers spiff up school zones By KEVAN MOORE

Kids returning to Mountainview Middle School and View Ridge Elementary in Bremerton this year may not even notice the freshly scrubbed and painted curbs nearby. Chances are, though, many of them probably would have wondered why those now-clean curbs looked so grungy had it not been for a group of dedicated volunteers pitching in this past weekend to clean things up. Milenka Hawkins-Bates, a manager at the city’s Public Works Department, put out a call for volunteers to help clean and paint the school-zone curbs because the city doesn’t have the financial resources to do ongoing maintenance. “In our current situation, curb painting has kind of fallen by the wayside,” Hawkins-Bates said. “Both (Public Works Director Chal Martin) and I feel strongly about school zones and want to keep those highlighted and emphasized.” Hawkins-Bates said it’s important for students to come back to school in an environment that is “bright, shiny and welcoming.” “I just think it looks so much nicer having those curbs painted,” she said. “Since we can’t do it throughout the whole city, we can at least do certain areas with volunteers. It’s a place to start and see what we can get done. It’s something we can’t maintain on our own, but with a volunteer effort, we can do that if everybody does just a little bit to help.” Two people, Robert Parker and Bob Dollar, who are regular faces at city hall and around town, were instrumental in the curb cleaning project. “They’re great,” Hawkins-Bates said. “Their hearts are in the right place when it comes to the City of Bremerton. Their civicmindedness is just a breath of fresh air.” In all, about a dozen folks, including city streets supervisor Jim

A dozen volunteers clean and paint school-zone curbs Saturday in Bremerton. Orton and other residents, turned out to help. Parker brought along a trailer-mounted paint sprayer, a gas powered edger and other essential equipment. He and Dollar stuck around through the afternoon to get as much done as possible, even when the paint ran out and other volunteers had moved along. “Bob Dollar was a real champion and worked his heart out until about 4:30 p.m.,” Parker reported, noting that by the end of the day volunteers had completed a total of 1,100 to 1,200 feet of curb painting and around 1,350 to 1,500 feet of curbs were cleaned and prepped for paint. “There remains about 400 to 500 feet of yellow (painting) to accomplish, about 250 to 300 feet of it has been cleaned and is ready to spray or roll already,” Parker added. “It was a fun project,” Dollar said. “I’m glad we get to do stuff like that and work with our schools and the city. The hardest part of the whole job was probably cleaning the grass off the curbs. That took us the most time.” One area where the curbs still need attention is Bremerton High School. “The two schools that we did get accomplished require a lot of curb preparation, whereas the high school doesn’t need as much as that,” Hawkins-Bates said. “So, we’re hoping to get it done before school starts in about a week.” In the end, Hawkins-Bates said the project was a success. “It was a lot more work than we anticipated, but it was fun,” she said. “Whenever you can get a group of people that doesn’t know each other meeting new friends and feeling really good about what you’ve done, it’s a great thing.”

Flip gets send-off By Seraine Page

Everybody had something good to say about Bremerton School District Superintendent Flip Herndon during his last board of education meeting last week. On Aug. 12, Herndon announced his decision to switch to the Seattle Public School System where he will be the Assistant Superintendent of Capital, Facilities and Enrollment Planning. Aaron Leavell, who is currently the district’s assistant superintendent, will take the reins until the Bremerton Board of Education makes a decision on Herndon’s replacement. A public forum will be held on Aug. 29 at 5 p.m. to allow public input on the replacement decision. Herndon’s last day in BSD will be Aug. 31. He starts with the Seattle Public Schools on Sept. 2, just in time for the upcoming school year. Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent was present for a brief period to thank Herndon for his contribution to the community. Lent offered Herndon with keys to the city for his efforts in the educational community. She also thanked him for working with the board in contributing an old junior high campus to the city for renovation into a Youth Wellness Campus and remarked she was grateful that Leavell had an opportunity to witness Herndon at work. “I’m very glad your assistant superintendent has spent time with you to pick up some of those skills,” she said. Board members also thanked Herndon for his patience, professionalism and hard work in showing them the trends in education. “When I think of you, I basically think of someone who is a heck of a guy. I knew you were gonna be something for Bremerton,” BoE member

Ken Watkins said. “I always appreciated your input. I hate to see you go, but I’m happy for you.” Those who spoke also acknowledged the sacrifice Herndon made in commuting and spending time away from his family in Seattle. Although he spent much time away from his family, board member Scott Rahm said that Herndon recognized the importance of focusing his efforts on improving what was in front of him. “You really earned your salary … we went through some tough times,” said Rahm. “We’re all here to serve our district and our children. You never let us forget that through your actions.” Bremerton BoE President Carolynn Perkins came into her position a few weeks before Herndon came into his in the district. She said she watched as he gracefully and seamlessly transitioned into the school district. “I just watched as you quickly stepped in and really focused yourself and Bremerton to go to the next level,” she said. “I’ve very proud of what has been achieved under your leadership.” During his four years in Bremerton, Herndon oversaw several major projects, including the transition of West Hills into the STEM Academy; an addition of a Montessori program, and Spanish Immersion for Mountain View students. Additionally, during his term, the high school graduation rate was at a peak. Perkins also said Herndon’s Friday memos were “great” and that the entire time he was in office was a time of education for the board members. “You’ve really educated us from the ground up,” she said. “You understand what it takes.” The board also presented him with a glass plaque for his work during his time as superintendent.

MADD looks for some funding help By Seraine Page

The members of MADD Kitsap Chapter are asking for help in raising funds for this year’s Walk Like Madd event. The chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), is part of a national nonprofit dedicated to protecting families from drunk driving and underage drinking. The Kitsap Chapter will be participating in the Seattle Walk Like MADD & 5K Madd Dash on Sept. 15 at 9 a.m. and is looking for members and funds to bring to the event. “I’ve been a MADD volunteer here in Kitsap for the 15 years now,” said Betty Skinner, a local member. “We have a goal of $1,000 for our Kitsap team…this year we kinda got off to a slow (fundraising) start.” So far, the group has raised $575 of its goal. This is the local group’s third year participating in the event, but it is the second year they’ve recognized and dedicated their walk to Washington State Trooper Tony Radulescu. He was shot and killed while making a traffic stop on a driver in a pickup truck in Gorst last year. Radulescu’s dedication to getting impaired drivers off the road is one of the main reasons the group is honoring him through their walk, Skinner said. “He was a good guy,” Skinner said, choking back tears. “He was a good, good guy. It’s a way to carry on his name.” We are walking in his memory for all he did to support the fight against impaired driving,” states the team’s mission on the Walk Like Madd website. “Trooper Tony supported us with his Aggressive Driving Apprehension

Team, supported us with emceeing our Mock Crash programs, attended our Youth Conferences to influence the kids with a positive message and worked tirelessly to remove drunk drivers from our county roadways.” After being the top fundraising team in the friends and family category last year at the event, Skinner hopes they can do it again. “We’ve opened it up to everybody that wants to honor Tony,” she said. “Our Trooper Tony Team goal last year was $1,000 and we raised $2,930 and had 37 members on our team.” Participants also do not have to show up to the event to donate. A virtual walker donation is offered through the event website for those who cannot attend the event. Registration costs vary, including $15 for youth (virtual and nonvirtual) and $20 for adult

Legal Notices Superior Court of Washington County of Kitsap In re: Pete Pasquali IV Petitioner Katherine Rose Pasquali Aka Katherine Rose Anderson Respondent. No. 13 3 00673 7 Order for Service of Summons by Publication (If Required by Local Practice) (ORPUB) I. Basis The court has considered Pete Pasquali IV’s motion and declaration requesting that the summons in this matter be served by publication.

walkers (virtual and nonvirtual). Runners will have a registration fee of $30. All registrations come with a Walk Like Madd t-shirt. According to the Walk Like Madd site, “10,839 people died in drunk-driving crashes — one every 50 minutes.” Sadly, MADD Kitsap Chapter Volunteer Marsha Masters knows all too well how true that statement is. As a former teacher at Olympic High School in Bremerton, she lost one of her students in a drunk driving incident. Being close with the family made it that much more difficult for her to face her classroom the week following the student’s death. “It was kinda hard to go into that classroom on Monday morning to face an empty desk,” she said. Masters has been involved in the local MADD chapter for 23 years as a volunteer

II. Findings Based on the representations made in the declaration, the court Finds that the summons in this matter may be served on Katherine Rose Pasquali (aka Katherine Rose Anderson) by publication in accordance with RCW 4.28.100. III Order It is ordered that the summons in this matter may be served on the nonmoving party by publication in conformity with RCW 4.28.100. Dated: May 24, 2013 /s/ Sally F. Olsen

and said that the event is a bittersweet one. “It’s just a real eye-opener to know that many people are impacted by impaired driving,” she said of the walking and 5K event. “It’s fun, but it’s sad too because you know they’ve been thrown into that role at no fault of their own.” As for raising funds in Radulescu’s honor, Masters said that everything that was written in the news or published about the former trooper last year was all true. While known for his big personality and smile, Masters said her friend was also very serious when it came to the topic of impaired driving. She said she hopes others realize that any donation, any effort to be involved is appreciated and worthwhile to the group. “He was very serious about traffic safety and was very serious about getting impaired drivers off the road,” she said. “This is one of the things that is absolutely 100 percent preventable. In their small or big way, they’re helping to do that (with this event).” For more information on the walk, visit or contact Betty Skinner at 360-4799850 to join the team.

to soar. As a result, puffin colonies and other species of nesting birds were decimated by gulls. Puffin parents fly long distances out to sea to find fish and bring them back to their nestlings. Feeding hungry young puffins is a big job, requiring both parents to spend long periods at sea, leaving their young vulnerable and unprotected. Arctic terns congregate in busy nesting colonies with lots of activity. Although they are one of the smaller terns, these birds aggressively attack

many species of birds travel in mixed flocks. All benefit because some species are better at finding food and other species are better at sounding the alarm when predators approach. On Machias Seal Island, off the coast of Maine, Atlantic puffins nest in close proximity to Arctic terns for protection. The puffin’s No. 1 enemy is gulls that prey on their eggs and young. Until cities and towns took steps to clean up the problem, open garbage dumps caused gull populations

all invaders. Resident wildlife biologists wear hard hats and carry sticks, and still bear head wounds from these attacks. The stick is not a weapon. It is held above the head so the tern will attack the stick instead of the scalp. Many believe our earliest relationship with dogs began as a similar pact. Early hunters allowed dogs to feast on the remains of their kills. The dogs, in turn, warned them of approaching dan-

ger and helped drive off other animals that threatened them. As the relationship evolved, they learned to hunt and work together. Sometimes people wonder whether man domesticated the dog or if it was a mutual arrangement worked out over millennia. Either way, that bond has never been stronger than it is today. — Gene Bullock is newsletter editor of the Kitsap County chapter of Audubon

Sweating and munching for a good cause Cyclists, runners and walkers cross the county to raise money for schools By Richard D. Oxley KITSAP WEEK


itsap will put the cleat to the pedal and the rubber to the road this September for a good cause … and pizza. The Bremerton Schools Foundation will hold its first Pizza Pedal & Run event starting at 7 a.m. Sept. 7. “This is the first year for the Pizza Pedal & Run. It used to be called the ‘LifeCycle event,’” said Event Coordinator Chloe Mosey. “It’s a new direction. We asked what cyclists like, and pizza was a common denominator.” “Because it’s new, it brings a sense of excitement,” she added Runners and walkers will begin and end at Olympic College in Bremerton and will cross over the Warren and Manette bridges. Cyclists will have their pick of routes, ranging

Cyclists take a break at last year’s LifeCycle, the predecessor to this year’s Pizza Pedal & Run that will take place on Sept. 7.

stops at local businesses will be available along the rides. “We have some bikers that go the full 100, and

others that may just do the Port Orchard loops,” Mosey said. The Pizza Pedal & Run is hosted by the

Bremerton Schools Foundation. Proceeds will be aimed at high school scholarships and teacher grants. “It’s going to a good cause,” Mosey noted. “It’s helping kids get an education by supporting students and teachers.” It is not known how many participants will ultimately walk, run or roll this year, though Poulsbo’s City Council members were briefed on the event — as planned for their neck of the woods — at their Wednesday meeting. The council was told to expect up to 80 cyclists to come through town between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Cyclists will enter Poulsbo on Front Street, cross over onto 4th Avenue to Iverson Street, then north on 7th Avenue to Liberty Road which will take cyclists across Highway 305 to 10th Avenue that will lead to Stella’s. Bikers are expected to used the same route to exit the city. But Poulsbo is only one leg of the cycling journey. Routes will be marked for the journey throughout the county. Cyclists will roll to

Northwest Chardonnays popular, easy to drink NW Wines C

hardonnay is America’s favorite wine, and it’s No. 1 in Washington, one of the state’s “big four” wine varieties. In the Old World, Chardonnay is best known in Burgundy, where it is the white wine of choice. In Chablis, a region of Burgundy, Chardonnay becomes a different style of wine with less of the oak and butter notes we’ve come to expect and more of the dramatic flint and citrus notes. In Champagne, Chardonnay is one of the primary grapes used to make sparkling wine (along with Pinot Noir). In the New World, California is by far the largest producer of Chardonnay. The “California style” of Chardonnay that developed over the past two decades has been a wine that is ripe, a touch sweet and oakey with rich, buttery flavors. In the past few years, a backlash against this style has led to more austere Chardonnays. So now we are seeing wines labeled as “unoaked” to signal us that we will experience a Chardonnay that is more steely and fruit-driven in nature. Both styles have their place, with the buttery styles working as cocktail sippers and the “tree-free” examples pairing better with shellfish, pasta and chicken. As we mentioned,

“We are now seeing wines labeled as ‘unoaked’ to signal us that we will experience a Chardonnay that is more steely and fruit-driven in nature.”

By ANDY PERDUE and eric degerman

Chardonnay is the top wine grape in Washington, followed closely by Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Here are several Northwest Chardonnays we’ve enjoyed in recent weeks. Ask for them at your favorite wine merchant or contact the winery directly. n Waterbrook Winery 2011 Reserve Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $15: This opens with aromas of pear, apricot, apple and a hint of butter, followed by fruit-driven flavors of Asian pear and buttered popcorn. n Chateau Ste. Michelle 2010 Canoe Ridge Estate Chardonnay, Horse Heaven Hills, $22: Coming from a cool vintage, this opens with aromas of baked apple, poached pear, butter and apricot, followed by flavors of butter, pineapple and butterscotch. n Boomtown 2011 Chardonnay, Washington, $16: This starts with notes of freshly sliced lemon and just-pressed apple cider, backed by pineapple and slate notes. It is fruitforward and food-friendly with fleshy apple and pear flavors on the entry. n Cloudlift Cellars

A Chardonnay awaits harvest in Washington’s Yakima Valley. 2011 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $18: The toast on this Chardonnay shows in the nose, backed by hints of chicken stock and earthiness. Oak stands a bit taller on the palate among flavors of lemon custard, vanilla, butterscotch and lime. n Mercer Canyons 2011 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $13: Aromas of dusty pear, starfruit, lemon and jasmine are supported by

flavors of pear, Braeburn apple, lemon curd and jicama. A scrape of lemon zest gives it extra lift at the end. n L’Ecole No. 41 2011 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $22: One of Walla Walla’s iconic wineries continues to celebrate its 30th anniversary this year with a delicious Chardonnay that blends tropical and orchard notes with a balanced use of French oak. n Gordon Family


Estate 2012 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $14: This Chardonnay opens with aromas of lime zest, lemon, celery and mint, followed by flavors of fresh caramel, Asian pear and jicama, all backed with bright acidity. n Smasne Cellars 2011 Upland Vineyard Chardonnay, Snipes Mountain, $20: This wine opens with aromas of candy corn, baked apple, butterscotch and pine-

apple, followed by juicy flavors of apple, fruit cocktail and butter rum candy. This is a delicious cocktail wine. n Vin du Lac of Chelan 2011 Barrel Select Chardonnay, Columbia Valley, $25: This Chardonnay from a Lake Chelan winery opens with aromas that reminded us of lemon meringue pie, pineapple, guava and oak, followed by flavors of citrus, pear and tropical fruit. n Fujishin Family Cellars 2011 Late Harvest Chardonnay, Snake River Valley, $22: Here’s a delicious and rare Chardonnay dessert wine. It opens with aromas of baked apple pie and flavors of poached pear and apricot, backed with enough acidity to balance the residual sugar of 6 percent. — Eric Degerman and Andy Perdue run Great Northwest Wine.

am sitting here trying to eat and write at the same time. I know it may sound like bad manners but I want to share this most amazing food with you. My neighbor gave me some baby patio-grown zucchini. Sara suggested that I make a Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread with it but I didn’t think that would do for such a special gift. I wanted something that would bring out the flavor of the young zucchini so ripe and ready to nourish. So I decided on a Gluten-Free Summer Vegetable Tian with Zucchini. Tian is a shallow earthenware casserole as well as the food it contains. The Tian originated in Provence and is traditionally made with a variety of vegetables, herbs and cheeses that are layered and then baked. I adjusted a few things from


Directions Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat the pans with olive oil. In a fry pan over medium heat, warm 5 tbs of olive oil. Add the onion and saute until translucent. Add the bell pepper, garlic and season

with salt and pepper. Cook until soft and transfer into the 2 baking pans. Add in the zucchini, tomatoes, rosemary, thyme on top and add the rest of the olive oil. Mix the cheese and the Gluten-Free bread crumbs together in a separate dish and then add on top of the vegetables. Bake for 15 minutes and then turn the broiler on and watch it turn golden brown! (Let it stand a few minutes to cool before serving.) I forgot how much I loved zucchini. Something so simple and naturally gluten free! Try it tonight or for your next dinner party. It will be your favorite too. Salud! — Lisa Garza’s Gluten Free Foodies is a favorite blog on Sound Publishing’s websites:,, CentralKitsapReporter. com, NorthKitsapHerald. com, and PortOrchard

Lots of reasons to smile at Pie in the Park

Mac Bowers, 8, raises his hands after finishing first in a pie eating contest during the fifth annual Pie in the Park fundraiser for the Village Green Foundation, Aug. 15. Megan Stephenson / Kitsap Week

Participants in the kids’ pie-eating contest compete in the fifth annual Pie in the Park fundraiser for the Village Green Foundation, Aug. 15.


he Village Green Foundation’s Pie in the Park fundraiser had smiling youngsters lined up and ready to take a bite on Thursday, Aug. 15. Suquamish Tribe Chairman Leonard Forsman presented a $100,000 donation from the Tribal Council to the Village Green Founda-

tion to be used to help build a community center and library at Village Green Park. Village Green Foundation volunteer Bobbie Moore said Pie in the Park, on its own, raised $17,546 for the foundation’s capital campaign. Volunteers with the foundation estimate they still need to raise $1 million for

the project. Construction cost estimates are around $6 million; a new community center and library will also house a Boys & Girls Club. Adjacent are the Village Green Senior Apartments, under construction. As of July, the foundation had raised $4.8 million.

aroundkitsap Bainbridge island Review

dealings with the city’s utilities, but only one council member — Councilwoman Sarah Blossom — provided emails in response to the requests. Paulson and Fortner said Blossom’s emails made it clear that Blossom, Bonkowski, Ward and Lester have been conducting city business by using their personal email accounts. Paulson and Fortner said there was no indication that the other three council members have used their personal accounts for city business. Council members have official email accounts set up by the city, and city policy dictates that council members use only their city accounts for city business. Emails recently released by the city show that council members Bonkowski, Ward, Lester and Blossom have long been using their private email accounts to correspond with the public and get advice on issues before the council.

City of Bainbridge Island hit with lawsuit over missing council members’ emails: Two “good government” advocates on Bainbridge Island have filed a lawsuit against the city of Bainbridge Island and council members Steve Bonkowski, David Ward and Debbi Lester, claiming the council members have been conducting city business from their personal email accounts. Althea Paulson, a Bainbridge Island blogger who writes about city politics, and Bob Fortner, a leader in the successful 2009 campaign to change the city’s form of government, filed the Public Records Act lawsuit Aug. 20 in Kitsap County Superior Court. The pair said they both filed a public records requests with the city to gain access to council members’ emails on the council’s recent

The lawsuit asks the court to order the three council members to either produce all responsive emails or submit their computer hard drives for examination. It also asks for unspecified

Bremerton Patriot Bremerton woman shot by police charged with first-degree assault: A Bremerton woman who was shot by local police responding to a domestic disturbance report has been charged in Kitsap County District Court with firstdegree assault. The maximum penalty, if convicted, is life in prison. Ann Marie Sommermeyer, 49, of the 1900 block of Naval Avenue, remains in stable condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. She was charged Aug. 14. According to court documents, Bremerton police officers Floyd May and Frank Shaw responded to the disturbance call at Sommermeyer’s apartment at 10:19 p.m. Once there, the officers were let in by a man at the door who then waited outside. “Sommermeyer was in the bathroom talking to herself and armed with two large kitchen knives,” a probable cause statement reads. “While officers were speaking to Sommenneyer, she quickly advanced upon them with a large knife in each hand.” According to court documents, Officer May then fell onto a bed “while Sommermeyer continued toward Officer Shaw who was retreating into the living room. Officer Shaw fell back

onto a coffee table and fired five rounds at Sommermeyer hitting her multiple times.” Officers May and Shaw rendered first aid to Sommermeyer until medics arrived and ultimately had her airlifted to Seattle. While processing the crime scene, five casings were located that are consistent with the type of ammunition issued by Bremerton Police Department. Harborview Medical Center advised police that Sommermeyer had two remaining bullets inside her body. —

North Kitsap Herald Suquamish Tribe donates $100K to Village Green Foundation: Suquamish Tribe Chairman Leonard Forsman said the Village Green Foundation’s community center is something he can get behind because of Kingston’s commitment to local children and elders. At the foundation’s annual Pie in the Park event Aug. 15, Forsman presented a $100,000 donation from the Tribal Council to the Village Green Foundation to be used to help build a community center and library at Village Green Park. Village Green Foundation volunteer Bobbie Moore said Pie in the Park, on its own, raised $17,546 for the foundation’s capital campaign. “We’re heading in the right direction,” Moore said. Of the Suquamish Tribe’s donation, she said, “The size of the gift is very significant. It’s a vote of confidence in the project and what we’re doing for the community. This community is a part of their history and they appreciate what we’re

doing to take care of the youth and the elders. It’s an extraordinary gift.” Volunteers with the Village Green Foundation estimate they still need to raise $1 million for the project. Construction cost estimates are around $6 million; a new community center and library will also house a Boys & Girls Club. Adjacent are the Village Green Senior Apartments, under construction. As of July, the foundation had raised $4.8 million: $1 million from the state Department of Commerce Building Communities Fund for building construction, except for the library portion; $1 million from the C. Keith Birkenfeld Memorial Trust, unrestricted; $1 million from Kitsap Community Foundation, awarded to Kitsap Regional Library Foundation for exclusive use at the Village Green’s new Kingston branch library; $654,000 from community members (since 2008); $600,000 from the 2012 sale of the property for infrastructure improvements; $335,000 from Kitsap County for architectural/engineering work; and $4,000 for senior center furnishings. —
