Santa delights a group of children who came out for the annual tree lighting in Old Town Silverdale last Saturday. The event is the traditional kick-off of the season in Central Kitsap County.

Tree lighting brings Santa, good cheer BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

Santa came to Silverdale over the weekend, and he did it in style, riding in to Old Town on a shiny red firetruck. His appearance came during the 59th annual Silverdale Tree Lighting event, a tradition that drew hundreds despite chilly temperatures. With the arrival of jolly ole’ St. Nick, residents crowded behind yellow tape, eager to shake his hand and say hello. At the end of the line, he stopped, and waited for the go-ahead to start his famous countdown. While looking to the tree adjacent to Silverdale Antiques, the crowd joined in on the countdown and cheered when the 131-foot tree was illuminated. It is the third largest living lit tree in the world, according to locals. The

Recycling poster contest is underway To celebrate Kitsap Recycles Day, Feb. 15, 2014, all kindergarten through eighth grade students–public, private, and home schools in Kitsap County – are invited to participate in the Kitsap Recycles Day Poster Contest. Ten posters are chosen as grade level winners and are featured on the county website and in local newspapers. In addition, student artists are recognized by the Kitsap Board of County Commissioners. Kitsap Recycles Day is recognized by the commissioners and set aside to remind residents the importance of buying and using recycled products in order to close the recycling loop. Closing the Loop is a process in which post-consumer waste is collected, recycled and used to make new products. This process can be as simple as using recycled aluminum to make new cans, or as complicated as weaving reclaimed plastic bottles into polyester for clothing and other products. Did you know: Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to power a television for three hours? Around 1 million trees’ worth of paper are thrown away every year in the U.S.? Americans use 4,000,000 plastic bottles every hour, yet only one bottle out of four is recycled? For information about the Kitsap Recycles Day poster contest, call Kitsap 1 at 360337-5777, or visit

Bremerton lawyer makes bid for county seat STAFF REPORT

Ed Wolfe, a Bremerton lawyer and former U.S. State Department official, announced this week he will file to run for the County Commission for Central Kitsap in 2014. The filing period isn’t until May. The primary will be Aug. 5, and the general election will be Nov. 4. The position is being vacated early — the end of this year — by Josh Brown, who is leaving to become executive director of the Puget Sound Regional Council. The Kitsap County Commission will appoint an interim successor, a Democrat. The appointee will have to run in and win the 2014 election to continue serving on the commission. “After careful consideration and discussion with my wife Wendy, and many trusted friends and supporters, I’ve decided to run for Kitsap County commissioner in 2014,” said Wolfe, a Republican. “I’ve spent years living and working in our community, and believe now is the right time to take this

next step to serve Kitsap County as commissioner.” Wolfe, whose only other bid for elective office was an unsuccessful run against Bremerton Ed Wolfe Municipal Court Judge James Docter a few years ago, has a long history of political activity. “You can see from my pattern, I really enjoy this process,” he said. “It’s part of my DNA. It started in my 20s working for a member of Congress. I got the bite then and it hasn’t gone away.” Wolfe said he has a good relationship with all three county commissioners and is more than likely to be friends with whatever candidate or candidates the Democrats put forward. But, he emphasized this week that he intends to win a seat on the commission. “I said to myself and my family and close friends that have encouraged me to run, if I’m gonna do this, I’m gonna win it,” Wolfe said. “I don’t have any positions or papers or campaign plans

right now, but I will in January. I’m in this to win.” While Wolfe wasn’t ready to offer many specifics about his campaign plans this week, he clearly thinks he will be a good can-

didate. “I think I can contribute to county government through this vehicle,” he said. “What that means, I really can’t say right now, but I think I can add something to the mix of the commissioners. It just feels right. I have a passion for my community. I don’t think anyone would disagree with that based on my record.” Wolfe, 66, received his B.A. in 1969 from West Virginia University and his J.D. in 1977 from George Mason University School of Law.

William Whitehurst, R-Va., 1976-78; and an associate in the firm of Steele and Utz in Washington, D.C., 1978-1980. He served as policy and program consultant for the National Marine Fisheries Service in 1981, and was legislative representative to the United States Tuna Foundation in 1981-82. In the U.S. Department of State, he was special adviser for international affairs in the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs from 1982-83, and in 1983 was appointed deputy assistant secretary of state for Oceans and Fisheries Affairs. After 1984, he held the rank of ambassador when repre-

Friday, December 6, 2013 | Central Kitsap Reporter

Taking care of business With the action of the Kitsap County Commission this week, Kitsap County has become a more animal-friendly county. Like many other places in the state, it will now benefit animal owners — specifically cat and dog owners — to microchip their furry friends. Under the new ordinance, animals with microchips will be returned directly to owners when the owners can be identified by a microchip. That avoids the cost of transporting and housing the lost cat or dog at the local shelter. And, with the new ordinance, licensed animals will be held at the shelter longer than unlicensed pets before being released for adoption. Just as important is the action that pets who are spayed or neutered will be less expensive to be licensed, thus encouraging pet owners to have their animals altered to prevent more unwanted cats and dogs ending up at the shelter. An example is a dog that is neutered and has a microchip can be licensed for $10 a year, $20 for three years, or $40 for lifetime. A female dog that is spayed, with a microchip can be licensed for $25 for a year and $50 for three years. That same dog, not spayed or neutered and without a microchip, can cost up to $200 to be licensed. Cats, too, if spayed, neutered and chipped, will be less expensive to license. County officials and those at the Kitsap Humane Society which operates the animal control responses in Kitsap County under contract with the county, are to be congratulated in taking these steps. With the help of a county-appointed committee that helped draft the revised animal ordinance, Kitsap County is creating a place that supports animal control operations. There’s nothing more cute than a kitten or a puppy, except a kitten and a puppy that has a home. Take a visit to the Kitsap Humane Shelter and see the over abundance of cats and dogs that need somewhere to call home. Shelter officials do a great job of caring for the animals that arrive at their door. But even they would love to be put out of business. By being responsible pet owners, and spaying or neutering our pets, and by getting them microchipped and licensed, we are helping create a county where animal over population may just be a thing of the past. We are helping to reduce the costs of animal control and we are helping make our pets a priority.

This fan’s ready for some football I am not a sports columnist. I bow humbly to the local writers in our community who are. My appreciation for the game of football came to me very late in life. My memories of growing up include having one of the four or five pre-cable channels of the TV that were available in our house, being taken up by football games on the weekends for nearly six months of the year. As a teenage girl at the time, sports were not what I preferred to watch. My angst with the game of football had begun. That all changed when my own child started playing pee wee football. Having the game of football broken down to its most basic level opened a very important door of understanding for the game, the strategy and the skills needed to excel. Sure, at the 6 to 11-year-old level, it is mostly a running game for obvious reasons and the runs occur at less than half the speed of later on. But this makes following the plays both easy and fun. The more I watched the game at the local practice field, the more I found myself seeking out and watching televised games at home much to the delight of the males in my life. I am pushing my submission deadline for this column to the very limit this week.

Everything Bremerton

Colleen Smidt I knew I would want to view and then write about what turned out to be one of the very best Monday Night Football games played in the Puget Sound area. The precision and execution of this game on the part of the Seahawks was incredible to watch. In the past, there have been times where Seattle has had a really good offense and times where it has had a really good defense. This is the first season in a long, long time where they have consistently had both for an entire season. The football franchise market in Seattle has never really been taken seriously. Most of the success the

Seahawks have experienced in the past has been written off or dismissed at the national level as an interesting anomaly where mistakes made on the part of opponents was credited for any success, first and foremost, well before any excellence was attributed to Seattle players. To overturn a call made on the field by the officials, a considerable amount of evidence to the contrary on the replay needs to occur before the reverse can happen. Well, this week’s Monday night game is absolute evidence that it is well on its way towards turning over the national bias against the Seattle sports market and the perception of the Seahawks as anything other than a serious championship caliber team. It is looking to be an exciting ride through the rest of the NFL season. The attention and excitement on the Seahawks is well deserved for a region that has worked very hard to support its franchise teams in the good times and through the even longer stretches of bad times. The 12th man is feeling extremely vindicated this week. For the rest of the NFL nation, welcome to the Russell Wilson house of boom.

Where’s dental in the state health exchange? BY THE WASHINGTON DENTAL SERVICE FOUNDATION

According to a new survey released today almost all adults in Washington believe that oral health is important to their overall health. These views are supported by medical, dental and public health experts who confirm that good oral health is an essential part of being healthy and fit. Despite the proven connection between oral health and overall health, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) doesn’t include dental care for adults. However, Washington State is considering adding adult dental coverage to the Exchange in 2015. This is good news because polling shows that the overwhelming majority of people in Washington believe that oral health is important. A statewide survey of 1,200 adults over age 25 released recently by the Washington Dental Service (WDS) Foundation reveals that: Four out of five Washingtonians (83 percent) agree that “it is important for Washington state to provide access to quality dental care to adults who can’t afford it, including preventive care.” Almost all (98 percent) of Washington adults over 25 said oral health is important

emergency care. In the most recent study conducted by the Washington State Hospital Association, dental problems were a key reason why individuals seek care in emergency rooms at a cost of $36 million over an 18-month period. But emergency rooms only treat the pain and infection; they are not equipped to treat the underlying dental problem. The value of good oral health extends well beyond avoiding dental costs. Poor oral health is linked to serious chronic health problems, such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Among diabetics, for example, treating gum disease can help control blood sugar levels and avoid costly hospitalizations and medical complications such as blindness and amputations. “The mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body,” said Jim Sledge, DDS and faculty member at the University of Washington School of Dentistry, Regional Initiatives in Dental Education (RIDE). “Good preventive care and oral health checkups are just as important as managing cholesterol, regular exercise and good nutrition.

County commissioners approve budget, animal fees BY LESLIE KELLY LKELLY@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

Kitsap County commissioners have approved a $343 million budget for 2014, following a public hearing Monday during which no one from the public spoke. Approval of the 2014 budget follows several weeks of discussions by the commissioners and county staff. At Monday’s meeting, County Budget Director Amber D’Amato told commissioners that the budget reflects $83.2 million in general fund expenditures for government operations, courts, the sheriff ’s office and jail costs. The general fund budget includes a 3.5 percent increase over the 2013 budget, according to county budget figures. It is the second year in a row that expenditures will be allowed to increase, following the 2008 to 2011 years during which spending was down and layoffs occurred. D’Amato said, based on economic forecasts, the bud-

get projects a 2.1 percent increase in sales tax revenues next year. Property tax revenues are expected to rise by nearly 4 percent, due in part to the 1 percent tax increase allowed by law, and increased construction and fewer tax delinquencies, she said. Together, sales and property taxes make up 64 percent of the total revenues, with other taxes, fees, fines and grants making up the remainder. On the spending side, law enforcement programs — including sheriff ’s deputies, prosecutors, court officials and jail personnel — consume about 70 percent of the county budget. General services such as the auditor, assessor, treasurer, county commissioners and general administration, total 23 percent. About 4 percent is spent on parks operations and employees. The proposed 2014 budget includes a 2 percent increase in salaries for all county

employees, although union contracts are still in negotiations. D’Amato told commissioners that the general fund will benefit from $2.6 million shifted from the county road fund. No major hiring is expected in 2014, D’Amato said, but the commissioners agreed to hire a new correction officer for the county jail next year. D’Amato said while the budget may reflect a rather large amount going toward employee salaries and benefits (68 percent), “we are in the service business and providing services to county residents is what we do.” Employees, she said, as the basis for that. “In light of that, it’s really not that unrealistic,” she said. She called the budget “sustainable and balanced,” and pointed out that it called for re-balancing the county’s reserves at the targeted 18 percent. Commissioners thanked D’Amato and her staff for

of transporting and housing the lost pet at the shelter. Licensed pets, too, will be held at the shelter longer than unlicensed pets before being offered for adoption. The change is from four to seven days, as another way of encouraging pets owners to license their animals. County officials have said that the annual costs of providing animal control is more than 10 times what is taken in in licensing fees. While the fee changes won’t make that kind of revenue, it will encourage more animals to be licensed. Exact fees can be viewed online at Commissioners also voted to have District 2 Commissioner Charlotte Garrido serve as chair of the commission beginning in January for the 2014 year. Commissioners take turns as chair and the chair runs the meetings. The final commission meeting of the year will be Dec. 10 at 2 p.m.

and that have no microchip will run from $50 to $200. Cat licenses will also be significantly less if the animal is spayed or neutered and has a microchip. Fees to redeem lost pets also were set. A lost dog or cat that is impounded, would be $45 return fee, with a $20 per day boarding fee, along with a $30 microchipping fee. Vaccinations are an additional $45. Kitsap Humane Society is under contract with the county to provide animal control services. With the new licensing fees in place, officials at KHS said they think animal owners will be more apt to license their pets. Under the revised ordinance, an animal control officer is authorized to return a lost pet directly to the owner when the owner can be traced through the microchip, said Eric Baker, special projects manager for the county commission. There will be a minimal fee, but less than before because with the new policy in place there will be less cost

the work they put in on the budget. “This budget process has evolved over time, certainly since I’ve been here and I credit you and your staff for that,” said Commissioner Rob Gelder. ‘as a commissioner I am amazed at how well this process is working.” In another measure, commissioners approved an resolution that sets forth new licensing rates for pets in Kitsap County. The resolution, which comes about after six months of study by a committee appointed by the commissioners, is designed to encourage pet owners to spay and neuter cats and dogs and to have them implanted with microchips. For dogs that are neutered and have a microchip licensing will be $10 for one years, and $20 for three years. Dogs that are spayed and microchipped will be $25 for one year and $50 for three years. Lifetime licensing will also be available. Licensing dogs that are not spayed or neutered

Two more seek the open county commission seat BY LESLIE KELLY LKELLY@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

Two more Democrats have thrown their names in the mix of those who want to replace Josh Brown on the Kitsap County Commission. John Poppe and Richard Huddy have joined five oth-

ers who announced earlier that they want to be appointed to the District 3 seat on the commission. Brown, who has served on the council for eight years, announced in October that he is leaving Dec. 31 to become the executive director of the Puget Sound Regional Council.

Poppe, who was recently reelected to his commission seat on the Silverdale Water District, has served on the water commission since 2008. He is a former waste water treatment facilities manager and previously worked with the CH2M Hill, an international engineering and consulting firm. He has served on the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Civil Service Commission. Huddy is the former executive director of the CAPRI Heart and

He is active with the United Way and the Bremerton Central Lions Club and has been active in Rotary. Diane Robinson, owner of the Elandan Gardens in Bremerton, submitted her name but later withdrew, according to Kitsap Democratic Committee Chairwoman Katherine Woods. Others running are: for-


Brown. That person will serve until the next election when voters can determine who they want on the council. The three will be chosen at a special caucus at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9 at the Eagle’s Nest, 1195 Fairgrounds Road NW. Only Democratic precinct committee officers will be able to vote. All candidates for the seat were able to address Kitsap County Democrats at a forum earlier this week.

Convicted felon steals rental car A Hertz car rental location employee notified police after a rental van was not turned in nearly a week after the contract was up. The vehicle, a white Dodge Caravan 4, was located by a Bremerton Police officer outside a store on Nov. 27. Cencom confirmed to two officers on patrol that the car was still listed as active stolen, according to a Bremerton

Police Department report. On the 1100 block of Callow Ave., officers conducted a “high risk stop” and ordered Nathan Tabtab out of the vehicle at gunpoint. After being arrested and placed in the back of a patrol car, Tabtab was read his Miranda Rights and then asked why he kept the rental car. He replied that he had called the Hertz location and “made arrangements to keep renting the van so he did not understand why it was reported stolen,” states the

report. During the car impound, officers also found a stolen .45 caliber semi automatic pistol. Tabtab said he wasn’t sure whose gun it was as he had lent the van to hired help earlier in the day to help with his painting and remodeling business. He was booked and charged with motor vehicle theft, possession of stolen property and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Ukulele stolen, sold for drugs A 24-year-old Bremerton man arrested for other warrants admitted to stealing a ukulele while staying at someone else’s home. On Nov. 23, a man notified the Bremerton Police Department that his $1,000 ukulele had been stolen

from his home. After returning to his home where a guest had been staying, he discovered the ukulele was gone. He asked the guest if he had taken it, and the guest denied taking it. Upon his Nov. 26 arrest, the man first denied and then later admitted to taking the instrument. “He needed money to support his drug habit,” states a Probable Cause form by the BPD. He sold the instrument for $15 at a thrift shop. His bail is set at $25,000 for second degree theft and trafficking in stolen property, first degree.

Woman tells deputy she’s a kleptomaniac Loss prevention officers at the Bremerton Fred Meyer notified the Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Office

Friday, December 6, 2013 of a female detained for shoplifting $70 worth of merchandise. The woman placed items in her purse and on the bottom rack of a shopping cart before picking up her daughter at the store daycare and walking out. When deputies asked why she took the items, the 39-year-old said, “I took the stuff, I don’t know why. I have the money to pay for the stuff. I have a mental health issue; I have kleptomania and I know it’s wrong,” states the report.

Man threatens to kill Harrison Medical staff On Nov. 28, a Harrison Medical Center staff member called authorities after a discharged patient left on foot after

saying he would return with a knife and “kill everyone.” The patient, a 45-year-old male, had been admitted 15 times over the month. A Bremerton Police officer found the discharged patient near the intersection of Wheaton Way and Lebo Blvd. and detained him. Although compliant, according to a police report, the suspect repeatedly stated, “I didn’t do anything, man.” During a search, the officer discovered a large folding knife inside the man’s pocket. The man also reported he was suicidal. The suspect told officers that what the staff member said was not true, and then asked if the arrest would be a “book and release.” He was booked for felony harassment, and bail is set at $20,000.

Disciplinary actions taken against a Kitsap nurse The Washington State Department of Health has taken disciplinary actions against a registered nurse who was working in Kitsap County. In October, the Nursing Assistant Program charged registered nursing assistant KC Marie Betancur (NA60283644) with unprofessional conduct. The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) will not allow Betancur to be employed in caring for and having unsupervised access to vulnerable adults. DSHS found that she stole about $100 from an assisted living community resident. The department’s Health Systems Quality Assurance Division works with boards, commissions, and advisory committees to set licensing standards for more than 80 health care professions including medical doctors, nurses, and

counselors. Information about health care providers is on the agency website. Click on “Look up a healthcare provider license” in the “How Do I?” section of the Department of Health website ( The site includes information about a health care provider’s license status, the expiration and renewal date of their credential, disciplinary actions and copies of legal documents issued after July 1998. This information is also available by calling 360236-4700. Consumers who think a health care provider acted unprofessionally are encouraged to call and report their complaint.

Group stitches together good book discussions BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

The library is a place of quiet and research for some. For others, it is just a building filled with books. But for Janice M. Miller, the Silverdale Branch Library served as a sort of refuge, a place where she found herself. Miller, who retired in 2008 due to a disability, frequented the library regularly. As a single woman with two dogs, she was lonely being cooped up in a house all day. The library served as an escape from her otherwise regular routine. “I had to stay home a lot,” said Miller, who also goes by Jan for short. She frequently

used the online catalog to find new books as a way to keep herself busy. Then she found “cozy mysteries” which are a sub genre of crime fiction. Miller immediately fell in love with the genre. One day while checking out another stack of books, Miller offhandedly told the librarian that more book clubs would do the library good. A mystery book club in particular, she thought, would add some variety to the library branch. After all, there was only one book club available. Not everyone fit in with the already-established club. At the time, the voracious reader didn’t realize that she was talking to Silverdale

Branch Manager Melody Sky Eisler. She also didn’t realize that when Eisler hears about an idea that she loves, she’s gung-ho to get it going. Miller volunteered herself without realizing she was on the horizon of starting something new. “I really like to support and nurture new ideas,” said Eisler, who remembers encouraging Miller to start a new club. Miller didn’t think she could do it, but after brainstorming ideas with Eisler, she came up with a name: Stitch a Cozy. Readers of cozy mysteries would gather together and do a little handwork. It wasn’t to be a knitting club. It wouldn’t be just a book club. It had to be a book discussion for a crafty group willing to stimulate conversation surrounded by a fondness of cozies. At first, it was just Miller sitting by herself doing stitch work in the library. Eisler would stop in and offer words of encouragement, telling Miller that it takes time for things to take off. Miller knew exactly what she wanted when she formed the club idea. When the marketing materi-

pened to be a knitter, ironically enough. It took about six months to gather momentum, but, now, almost two years later, Miller can’t imagine it any other way. “It just kinda has evolved since then,” she said. “They’re all stitchin’ and talking and knitting.”

plots. Before they know it, the readers are wrapping up the meeting with some tea and snacks. The group is made up of women who have discovered connections beyond a love of cozies and handwork. “The visiting and the connecting with the other ladies in the group is the most fun,” said member Amy Steed. “It’s a really nice camaraderie.” Steed enjoys quilting, but also loves to knit. Her love for books started at a young age, and she “comes from a long line of librarians” which is another reason she finds the book club so enjoyable. Since joining the group early this year, Steed has found a way to connect with other locals in a relaxing setting. So far, “Naughty in Nice” has been Steed’s favorite read. “The nicest thing is that you’ve got people there that have a double commonality. This is the first time I’ve been able to pair up the two interests,” she said. “I am really grateful that Janice and the librarian at Silverdale started the group, and I hope that the group grows bigger and that the library grows.” Not only has the group grown, but Miller believes she has grown as well. Her confidence has blossomed, she said, as a result of being a volunteer leader for the group. She had joined other interest groups in the past, but it never worked for her. This, for her, was the first time she told herself that she could do


something. “I was so lonely when I started this. This book club has stretched me to develop my own likes and my own passions,” the library volunteer said. “I may be 64 years old, but I’m doing it, finally. That (group) has changed my life. It kinda woke me up.” When Eisler thinks about the club and the volunteer who started it, she is reminded of someone who helped the library in a creative way. Monthly, Eisler sees what Miller created from the ground up. When the laugher carries above the bookshelves, Eisler knows the library has got a good thing going on. “She’s just fantastic. Jan told me that the Stitch a Cozy program changed her life,” Eisler said. Although Eisler has been told by Miller how much the library means to her, the branch manager hopes Miller knows what she means to the

library, too. “To me, she’s a volunteer who has gone above and beyond the call of duty,” she said.

The memorial will take place at the Crossroads Neighborhood Church, located at 7555 Old Military Road NE in Bremerton, at 3 p.m. Bigelow, who died unexpectedly on Nov. 12, began his fire service career in 1980, first as the fire chief of Kitsap County Fire District 15 and then as Fire Chief of Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue after District 15 merged with District 1 in 1999. Bigelow served as fire

chief until his retirement in 2001. Chief Bigelow impacted the local community in many ways, from serv-

Steve Bigelow

ing as President of the Kitsap County Fire Chiefs Association, to coaching local youth soccer teams and being an active member of the Silverdale Chamber of Commerce.

One project that was held in particular high regard to Chief Bigelow was his role in helping to form the Kitsap Readiness Response Center. After his retirement, Chief Bigelow remained an active member of the community, teaching at the Readiness Center and taking part in Kitsap County’s Department of Emergency Management Incident Management Program. Chief Bigelow is survived by his wife and three children. His son, Chris Bigelow, is currently a firefighter with Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue.

Great Stuff: our last line of defense Of all the household chores and repairs I’ve had to face on my own in Dustin’s absences, the one that I still feared the most, until last week, was using Great Stuff Foam. You know, it’s that liquid in a spray can that expands to three-times its size to fill holes in walls. It looks like a can of hair spray, and it shakes like spray paint, but when the yellow liquid inside meets the air, it grows like a marshmallow about to burst in the microwave. Yes, I feared this even more than sewage flooding the basement or getting on the roof to chip away at ice dams. I think my fear came from watching my dad use Great Stuff when I was a kid. Maybe it was the way he always told me to “stand way back” while the foam was “growing.” Maybe it was the long list of warnings I saw on the back of the can. Or maybe it was seeing what happens to the outside of other peoples’ homes when they get overzealous with Great Stuff. More likely, however, I was afraid of Dow compa-

ny’s wonder filler because, in the past, cans often came with a set of gloves. Any product that has its own accompanying safety equipment — goggles, gloves,

ral gas last week. One of the dirty secrets of this popular conversion is that you are left with mice-sized holes in your basement walls afterward. For centuries humans have sealed their basements to keep critters out. Now, through the wonders of natural gas conversions, we’ve left holes in our fortress. The mice can hardly believe their good fortune. All these warm houses, once air-tight and impenetrable to them, now have one- to two-inch holes at ground level. We might as well put revolving doors and concierges outside. The gas company will fill the holes for you, but if the conversion takes nearly 12 hours, as it did for us, and the workers leave after sunset, it’s possible for them to overlook places that need to be filled. You will see them the next day, when you are taking laundry to the basement, and sunlight beams in like a flashlight through the foundation. If you’re like me, it will be a Saturday and the gas company will be closed for everything except emergencies. You’re going to need

If the manufacturer doesn’t trust you enough to get your own equipment, if they have to supply if for you, then what business do I have using it in my basement? Spoiler: The can I used last week did not come with gloves, and I didn’t have any of my own. I used a plastic bag instead. I had gone many years without needing to use Great Stuff. Then we converted our heating system to natu-


Great Stuff. The people at Lowe’s were careful to explain the seriousness of Great Stuff to me. “A little goes a long way,” the man said. Then he repeated it like ten more times. “And use gloves,” he warned. When I got home and realized I didn’t have gloves, I asked Ford and his friend Noah to come into the basement with me for moral support. I didn’t want to face Great Stuff alone. Also, I wanted there to be witnesses if the foam swallowed me whole. As I stuck the can’s nozzle into the hole where our oil tank line used to be, Ford and Noah started mocking me: “Oh no! It’s the FOAM!” They hummed music from “Jaws.” Once the liquid started oozing out of the hole, however, they realized my fear: the foam grows. And grows. And grows. “Mom, you used way too much,” Ford yelled. “It’s dripping onto the floor,” Noah said. Heaps of Great Stuff billowed from the walls, and it was still oozing from the nozzle, too. It was on my hands and the toe of my shoe, and it was hardening fast.

Sailors get feast Sailors assigned to the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74), and their families, shared a special meal to celebrate Thanksgiving in the ship’s homeport of Bremerton for the first time in two years. “What a fantastic experience it is celebrating this Thanksgiving meal with my family from home and my family aboard the ship,” said Capt. Mike Wettlaufer, Stennis’ commanding officer. “This was a well-deserved salute to our hard-working sailors and the families that support us through all that we do.” Several of Stennis’ senior officers volunteered to serve food to the sailors and their guests. “It’s great to be home and with my daughter who is serving meals with me,” said Cmdr. Dan Davidson. “Taking care of our sailors is important and it’s something we enjoy doing.”

Stennis’ Food Service Division (S-2) spent more than 400 hours preparing the food and arrangements to ensure every guest had a first-class Thanksgiving meal. “Getting everything ready was a two-day process,” said Culinary Specialist 3rd Class Ashley Darwin. “Not only did we prepare the food ahead of time, we also made sure the tables and dishes were properly set up for our guests.” The time spent to prepare was not unnoticed as sailors relaxed and enjoyed a holiday meal with friends and family members. “This meal was great,” said Logistics Specialist 3rd Class Cody Eades. “It was more than I expected.” Stennis is currently undergoing a Docking Planned Incremental Availability maintenance period at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility.

Heights elementar y schools filled the air with traditional Christmas carols, including “Here Comes Santa Claus” as a greeting to the man in red. While waiting for the big arrival, the scent of fresh kettle corn wafted over bundled up guests, many clutching cups of hot cocoa or apple cider. Despite the cold weather, Bremerton resident Albert Frei stopped in to enjoy the holiday music and to support his sisters’ choral groups. “I think it’s fun. I wish it wasn’t so cold,” said Frei. “I like listening to the music. It brings happiness.” Starting around 2 p.m. on Saturday, various businesses opened their doors to the public for shopping, eating a few cookies and keeping warm between outside events. Early in the day, Oxford Suites sponsored a hayride to and from the Silverdale Library, where children created their own Christmas cards. Lisa Stirrett also opened her doors to families to decorate Christmas cookies and sip hot chocolate or lemonade. Stirrett baked 300 cookies for kids visiting her studio during the holiday event. For some, like Poulsbo resident Helen Sugrue, the event served as a reminder to slow down and appreciate the beauty of community. Sugrue said that the holidays have been too commercialized in recent years, and it is time to get back into the true spirit of the holidays. “It’s great the whole community is together. It’s a great turnout,”


Sugrue said, looking around. “The department stores commercialize. I like old-fashioned Christmas.” Sugrue came with her daughter, Thelma Corbin, to the event. Corbin’s daughter, Emily, sang with the Brownsville Elementary choir. Corbin said she wanted her daughter to have exposure to events that show a sense of community. Holiday gatherings like the tree lighting is an easy way to slow down during the holiday craze, she remarked. “It has that small-town feel,” said Corbin. Over the years, the organizing party for the event has changed, but the spirit behind the event has remained. Bill Seelow served as the caretaker of the huge, beloved Douglas Fir tree for 50 years, but stopped in recent years due to his ailing health. Seelow once owned an electrical shop near the site of the tree, and he decided to join in with the local fire department in decorating it. Once the fire department got busy with other tasks, Seelow saw to it that the job got done. “Many years I hired tree climbers. I bought the lightbulbs,” he said. “It’s a big job. You gotta start in the middle of summer getting it all ready.” If it weren’t old age, Seelow would still be the leader of getting the tree decorated. Nowadays, he leaves it up to the Silverdale Dandy Lions, Silverdale Rotary, Silverdale Chamber of Commerce and the Silverdale Kiwanis clubs to get the event going. “It’s just been a wonderful experience,” he said. “I’d do it all over again.”

said. “In our case, he’s been a staunch supporter of the department and its culture shift that has resulted in the community viewing it as a partner rather than a roadblock for economic development and environmental programs.” In thinking about his tenure in office, Brown also points to the work he did to provide leadership in a collaborative way “to get things done.” “The YMCA in Silverdale is an example of that,” he said. “I’m really proud of that project and I really advocated for it. Getting it built happened because the community came together in a way that we didn’t imagine we could before that.” He said prior to having the Y, people in his district — the Silverdale area — would only see each other at places like Costco or the mall. “Now, every time I walk in the Y, I see people of all ages enjoying themselves,” he said. “The impact of that facility is so great.” By working with community groups and creating a partnership where the Y could lease the property from the county, the project came to completion, he said. Brown also is proud of the work he’s done to diversify the local economy. “My dad worked the shipyards,” he said. “But Kitsap County has grown to the point that the Navy isn’t the only employer and industry. And that’s the way it needs to be. We need the private sector jobs so that we are not so dependent on the Navy.” Working with the Kits ap E conomic

Conway makes a great example of foster parenting BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

There’s never a dull moment in Kelly Conway’s house. In fact, for the past two decades, her home has been a lively epicenter for foster children, and, now, her adopted children. The east Bremerton single mom estimates she’s fostered more than 40 children -- not including the ones she’s had for just a day or two -and at the end of the day, she wouldn’t have it any other way. “Doing foster care and adoption is one of the best things I’ve ever done,” she said. “I don’t know what my life would be like (if I hadn’t done it).” November was National Adoption Month, and there’s no one better to talk about adoption than Conway, an enthusiastic, no-nonsense mother who wants nothing but the best for her children.

She’s adopted seven children -- now ranging in age from 23 to nine -- and one already has moved on out of the house on his own. All -- at one time or another -- were foster children in her home. Now, they’re hers, forever and ever, she said. “Kelly is one of the strongest women I know. She has high standards for how kids should be treated and wants only the best for them,” said Naomi Nichols, president of Kitsap Foster Care Association. “She is willing to fight for them. I really look up to her as someone that I can ask questions to about how the system works or what I should do in certain situations.” Conway, who has a degree in criminal justice and sociology with a minor in political science, is a ball of energy and loves a good challenge. She’ll proudly admit she can feed a household with several kids

for $150 a month with her extreme couponing habits. “I won’t buy anything full price if I don’t have to,” she said, shaking a box of cake mix she got for 40 cents. “I won’t do it.” And although she is technically a single mother, she still has help from her ex, who just happens to live across the street from her. They still go on family vacations together, and anytime she needs help, she knows it only takes a phone call or a walk across the street to get some. “We do everything together,” she said. “It’s what’s best for the kids. They don’t have to choose.” Her family has always been supportive, even if they don’t always understand why she keeps fostering, she said. “I have huge family support,” she said. “They welcome every kid who comes into my house. I love it because

this is really important to me. Our family does everything together.” Conway worked for the Kitsap County juvenile court and then Kitsap Mental Health after graduating college. What she saw broke her heart and convinced her that she had to do something to help the victims she was seeing. A young boy went through 10 homes in two years right in front of her eyes. “It killed me,” Conway said. She couldn’t stand seeing the torment of instability he was subject to, and, as a result, took guardianship of him for a little while. That was when she and her partner knew they should adopt, she said. They got licensed to care for young adolescent boys, and that’s when the phone calls started. “They started calling us constantly for kids,” she said. At one point, eight teenage boys were in the house. Even if things may have been overwhelming, Conway just remembered her ultimate goal was to give kids a “normal childhood,” she said. In 2011, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services data shows 1,568 children were adopted across the state of Washington. However, 9,460 children were entered into foster care during that same year. That’s where people like

Conway step in. Even now, with six adopted children and one foster child in the house, her schedule is hectic. The children all have different needs, and, as a result, go to different schools --- one child as far as Tacoma. Two of her children are autistic, and regardless of their abilities, she tells all the children that education is a priority in her household. For Conway, the progress of the children in her care is the most rewarding aspect of being a mother. She remembers one little boy in particular who wouldn’t leave the fridge alone. Usually, when a kid stands with the fridge wide open for several minutes, she’ll tell them to grab what they want and shut it. This foster child continuously opened the fridge even when he wasn’t hungry. Finally, Conway asked him what was going on. “I just wanted to make sure food is still there,” he told her. She closed the fridge and then took him out to the garage to see her other food storage places -- shelves and extra freezers -- and told him he’d never have to worry about food. After that, the opening of the fridge door became less and less, she said. Although finding the truth out about her childrens’ backgrounds can be painful, it is

essential for Conway to know what they went through so she can try and help them, she said. Some of the children receive counseling, and one of her own main goals is to work on their social skills. She often finds the children she adopted asking her if they can do certain things. May I have a snack? Can I use the restroom? “What puts a smile on my face is watching their confidence improve,” Conway said. “I love finding out about these kids.” One way she does that is as soon as they walk in the door from school or other extra curricular activities. She won’t let the kids come in and head straight to their rooms. They have to tell her about their day and show their day planner to her. Then, they all sit around and do homework for a few hours before having dinner. “We’re very organized here,” she said. If papers to be signed aren’t on the counter in the evening, it won’t be signed the next morning, Conway guarantees. She wants to teach responsibility with her tough ways. Another way Conway discovers more about her children is keeping in touch with their biological parents. While most came from impoverished backgrounds, she wants her children to know where they came from. She invites biological family to school functions and birthday parties. “They have all been to our house,” she said. “We call them family.” Even the one foster child she has now is considered part of the family,

Soap ‘scientist’ creating eco-conscious soap BY SERAINE PAGE


Laura Kneib wants to change the world one bar of soap at a time. Slowly, she’s doing it. Kneib, a Bremerton local, is owner and creator of F.R.O.G. Soap, which stands for From Reclaimed Oil and Glycerin. It’s all part of her plan to be as eco-conscious as possible. Since she started, Kneib’s recycled nearly two tons of waste vegetable oil, cardboard, junk mail and biodiesel glycerin. Every bit of it goes toward her soap production business. “It’s a cleaner alternative. I have to (do it),” said Kneib. “It’s pure. It’s good. It’s clean. No additives.” Creating the perfect soap hasn’t come easy, though. She learned under her mother’s guidance, starting at age twelve. Since then, she’s been tinkering with creating the ideal soap—one that cleanses and sanitizes without drying out the skin. Now, in her late 50s, Kneib has found a way to make a natural soap with reclaimed vegetable oil she gets from restaurants. The idea came to her while she was sitting in a restaurant where she saw a huge bottle of vegetable oil. She wondered what happened

to the oil once it was no longer useable. When she found out that some is carted off for biodiesel, and the rest is dumped in landfills, Kneib could barely stand the thought. When she asked, most restaurant staff were more than willing to give her vegetable oil to tote off. Each year, the U.S. alone generates about three billion gallons of waste cooking oil, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency website. The amount wasted could fill “tanker trucks arranged bumper-tobumper from San Francisco to Washington D.C. and back,” states the website. Although biodiesel can be created from vegetable oil, Kneib is concerned it isn’t enough to keep the unused portions out of landfills. “To me, it’s the soap of the future,” she said. “Using what is here, the possibilities are endless.” Kneib—raised by two crafty parents—was taught to reuse and recycle. She remembers going to the dump with her parents and the location being used as a swap meet at times. “It’s a family thing. Use something again and again,” she said. She recycles in every way she possibly can. Her soap molds are made from recy-

cled shipping pallets, and the packaging is from cardboard friends and others give her. The ingredients vary and come from a variety of sources—she kayaks on Ostrich Bay to find seaweed to dry out and plucks dandelions from her front yard. And those little pieces of soap that bars get whittled down to? She knits a little baggie that all soap ends go into and uses it as a pre-filled soap sponge. Even though her soap is natural, and people often scrunch their noses at her when they find it is made from recycled vegetable oil, Kneib’s soap is not a product to turn a nose up at. She isn’t sure how many scents she has—she’s always creating new ones—but the most popular is her lavender soap. Other fragrances include peppermint, pumpkin pie, dandelion, grapefruit, lily pad and more. It takes about two hours to make a batch of soap in her home kitchen. Kneib looks to her index card recipes taped up all over her kitchen cabinets. She moves with ease, shuffling around her dog, Katie, who is always nearby wagging her tail. Soap isn’t the only thing she makes. Lip balm, shampoo and, one of her favorites,

mom who had Alzheimer’s told Kneib that showers were a constant struggle, but told Kneib that her soap made all the difference. The soap made her mother’s skin less dry, and she stopped picking at it, which previously caused lesions. The charcoal in one of the bars also helped neutralize odors that come from taking medication. As a result, Kneib got to work on crafting a new kind of bar. She calls it her “Caregiver’s Shampoo/Body Bar” and notes it is easier for caregivers to use than traditional liquid shampoo. The ingredients include reclaimed veggie oil, palm oil, coconut oil, almost oil, castor oil, rainwater and activated charcoal. It’s why Kneib gets so passionate about sharing why she makes her soap the way she does. She’s even thinking of offering classes in the near future if she can find more on the time.

“So many of our people come back broken,” she said. “I find this is a good way to help them.” Since she started her business in 2012, she’s gotten quite a bit of feedback.

Former U.S. ambasador runs for county commission: Ed Wolfe, a Bremerton lawyer and former U.S. State Department official, announced he will file to run for the County Commission from Central Kitsap in 2014.

Tracyton tree tradition may not continue: The Tracyton Community Christmas Tree, a tradition that started in 1948, may not continue beyond this year. According to community member Bonnie Chrey, unless volunteers are found to climb the tree and install lights, there will no longer be a lighted Christmas tree for the community to enjoy. The original tree became diseased in the early 1980s and was removed. The new community tree is located on the grounds of the Tracyton Methodist Church. “We no longer have anyone to climb the tree and we need help getting the word out to the community that the tree lighting won’t happen if they don’t get involved,” Chrey said. — CentralKitsapReporter. com


School board candidate pays back stolen funds: Former Bremerton school board candidate Wendy Stevens agreed to cut a deal in her first-degree theft case. Stevens was charged in October with stealing funds from the Naval Avenue PTA. At a scheduled court appearance on Nov. 17 morning, Stevens sat in a packed Kitsap County District Court room. Her lawyer, Thomas Weaver, presented an $8,000 check to Naval Avenue PTA president Barbie Swainson. Kitsap County Deputy Prosecutor Barbara Dennis said Stevens will enter the Kitsap County Superior Court’s felony diversion program, a contract between her and the state, where paying restitution to the PTA is one of several conditions. Stevens will also have to perform 48 hours of community service, pay a $1,500 fine and stay out of trouble for a year. Stevens will not have to enter a guilty plea as part of the deal. Dennis said Stevens’ ability to pay back the money she took was critical. —

The position is being vacated early — the end of this year — by Josh Brown, who is leaving to become executive director of the Puget Sound Regional Council. The Kitsap County Commission will appoint an interim successor, a Democrat. Wolfe, 66, is an Army veteran and in the 1970s was a congressional aide. In the U.S. State Department, he was special adviser for international affairs in the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs from 1982-83, and in 1983 was appointed deputy assistant secretary of state for Oceans and Fisheries Affairs. After 1984, he held the rank of ambassador when representing the United States at international conferences and meetings on fish and wildlife matters. He founded Wolfe Law Offices in 1997, specializing in personal injury, employment discrimination, probate and estate planning, real estate and business disputes, and wrongful death. —

Proposed shopping center gets a ‘no’ vote: The Bainbridge Island Planning Commission has unanimously rejected a proposed shopping center. Commissioners said the proposed commercial center, which would include a Bartells drug store and a health services building, had design flaws that raised safety issues for drivers and pedestrians. Commissioners also questioned whether the new businesses were needed. The development has been in the works for more than a year. Visconsi Companies, based in Pepper Pike, Ohio, approached city officials in 2012 with a plan for a 61,890-square-foot shopping center on a little more than 8 acres of land at Highway 305 and High School Road. The planning commission issued its recommendation for denial of the project on Nov. 14 at the close of its third consecutive meeting on the shopping center, before a packed house at city hall. The audience broke into applause after the commission voted to reject the project. Commissioners cited strong public opinion against the proposed project as a reason for rejecting the shopping center and said the commercial development

would endanger the special character of the island. —

Seasonal spirit brightens Kitsap “Each boat is different and is lit up on the (starboard) side of the boat,” she said. Poulsbo’s yacht club will lead two parades this season. On Dec. 13, a

fleet of illuminated boats will journey — heading north — in front of the Poulsbo waterfront before touring along the western shore of Liberty Bay, down to Keyport.

On Dec. 14, club boats will leave Liberty Bay for another parade starting at 6 p.m. at Manzanita Bay in Bainbridge Island. The parade will move north See Lights, Page 5

t’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Just take a look around Kitsap. From Port Orchard to Port Gamble, homes, buildings and boats are lighting up with festive cheer. Lit up more than the decorations are perhaps the faces that gaze upon them. “It’s to get people in the Christmas spirit,” said Ron Comin, who produces an impressive array of lights at his home on Big Valley Road in Poulsbo. “A lot of people over the years have come in, not feeling in the mood, and once they get back there it makes everybody happy,” he said. “It gets them in the spirit. By the time everybody leaves, they are feeling like it’s Christmas.”

Comin began a love affair with Christmas lights when he was 9, watching his father put lights up. “I think it’s just that when you are young and doing things with your dad and he’s showing you how to do things, it sets a tone for the future,” Comin said. “So I do this in his memory as a part of it.” Eight years ago, Comin began decorating a trail around his home and garden for the holidays. That display grew larger over the years to come. Today, his display boasts approximately 65,000 lights that wind through a North Pole (complete with elves),

candy cane lane, a nativity scene, and much more. “Five years ago, we opened it up to the public and a couple years ago we started accepting donations,” Comin said. “Our electric bill was getting to be more and more and more, so we started charging.” Comin now charges $6 to walk through the display. Children younger than 6 are free. Comin isn’t alone in his fervor for festive flair. The Poulsbo Yacht Club is one organization of boating enthusiasts that tour their lighted boats through the area’s waterways. “The boats from the yacht club are decorated in Christmas lights,” said Patty Henderson of the Poulsbo Yacht Club.

Continued from page 1 “A majority of it will be Christmas music,” Tingstad said. “We will put in some of our music as well, and some obscure ones like some Spanish Christmas carols some French Christmas carols.” The duo first combined forces in 1985 as Tingstad was working on a Christmas album, “The Gift.” “(Rumbel) was on almost every song on there and it didn’t make much sense to have it be a solo album, so we put her name down on the cover,” Tingstad said. Rumbel and Tingstad’s names have since paired up for a total of 19 albums. One album, 2002’s

“Acoustic Garden,” earned the two a Grammy for Best New Age Album. Tingstad was also nominated for a Grammy for his solo work on his 2007 album “Southwest.” From 1987 to 2004, Tingstad and Rumbel held a record deal to distribute their music. But since then, they’ve been independent artists. “[We] didn’t get dropped. We just quit,” Tingstad said. While the two haven’t recorded holiday music exclusively, their style has found a home in the genre. “Christmas has been very good to us and we do the bulk of our touring at Christmas time, almost to the point that people have considered us a Christmas act, a part of their tradition,” Tingstad said.

Tingstad and Rumbel have performed a range of musical styles, but have perhaps become most widely known for their works of holiday music. The duo won a Grammy for their album “Acoustic Garden.”

Santa is expected to be aboard a parade boat and will call out names and messages along the way. “People have parties specifically on the night, and their guests don’t always know their names will be called out by Santa Claus,” Henderson said. “People ask for Santa to say ‘Happy birthday’ or, if someone has just moved to the area, Santa will say ‘Welcome.’ Last year, we had a dad in Afghanistan and Santa [told their children] their daddy was going to be home soon.” Contact Tom Henderson at to request a message from Santa. Be sure to include the address where Santa will call it out. To join the parade in your boat, contact At the south end of the county, Stokes Auction in Port Orchard continues its tradition of lighting up its buildings and fences for passersby. “We’ve hung those lights since 1975,” said Brian Orwiler of Stokes Auction. “It seems every year it gets a little bit bigger, and a little bit farther. And we’re still not done. “We never give up. If we have some down time, and the sun is out, we will come up with some other idea and try that.” The display at Stokes Auction takes four people approximately 160 manhours to accomplish. Multiple buildings and 100 yards of fencing feature $1,500 worth of lights. Whether it is a home, a business, or a boat on the water, Kitsap is beaming with holiday spirit this

Blackberries and briar patches

Underbrush and shrubs provide food and cover for many animals and birds

Kitsap’s Holiday Destination

By Gene Bullock Kitsap Audubon


r’er Rabbit is not the only critter that loves a briar patch. The underbrush bordering parks and open fields provides food and cover for a multitude of birds and small animals. Yet, park maintenance crews sometimes seem obsessed with turning these untidy havens into manicured lawns that must be watered and mowed. It reflects our view of nature as something to be tamed and subdued. And wildlife is paying the price. I grew up on some of the most productive farmland in Michigan. The river bottom lands were built up from centuries of silt deposited when local

WSDOT was persuaded to delay painting the Warren Avenue Bridge in Bremerton until peregrine falcons, like the one shown here, were finished nesting. Ruth Sullivan / Contributed rivers overflowed. Today, those farms have been replaced by paved streets and driveways. Instead of rhubarb and melons, the rich soil now supports landscaped yards and decorative shrubs. It’s a symbol of our time, when the American dream is a McMansion in the country with acreage stripped of its natural cover and forest duff. I may just be a displaced farm boy who pines for the “old days” when I could roam the fields with my dog and dream Huck Finn fantasies. Nostalgia has a way of repainting boyhood memories. But we love our parks because they heal and refresh our spirits. They’re a reminder that nature is still accessible, even if it’s in a municipally managed parcel tucked between developments. While I’m at it, I have another ecological peeve

to share. Construction crews often think that spring is the perfect time to chop down trees and bulldoze brush to make way for new buildings, roads and other “improvements.” But planners never consider that spring is when trees and shrubs harbor hidden nests and dens that are homes for young birds and animals not yet ready to survive on their own. These conflicts too often turn out badly for birds and wildlife. A friend I remember wouldn’t use his tractor until after the family of robins nesting there were fully fledged. We may not be ready to go as far as that, but construction schedules can often be adjusted to minimize the harm. Members of Kitsap Audubon helped avert a wildlife tragedy a few years ago by partnering with the

Washington Department of Transportation. Work crews were preparing to repaint the Warren Avenue Bridge in Bremerton, when Audubon members alerted them to the presence of nesting peregrine falcons and a unique colony of pelagic cormorants. WDOT was persuaded to delay repainting until after the birds were done nesting. Workers even arranged to lower a wildlife biologist to rescue eggs from a nesting pair of peregrine falcons. The eggs were incubated at a wildlife rescue facility in Oregon, and the young falcons were eventually released in the Columbia Gorge. With a little thought and care, there is much we can do to live in harmony with the wonderful diversity of birds and wildlife that share our urban wilds.
