Kids on Christmas
Children get excited knowing that Santa Claus’ arrival is close. The CK Reporter visited students across Silverdale to find out just how Saint Nick gets the job done. From dashing off on his sleigh with presents to “shrinking down” to get under the front door, young children will always have an answer when it comes to Santa’s comings and goings. — Photos and story by Seraine Page
Kindergartener, 5½ How do you think Santa gets into your house to deliver presents? “His bag takes him up and down the chimney.” How does he get around the world to deliver toys in one night? “’Cause his reindeers go really fast — 50,000 mph.” Why is Santa so fat? “He ate lots of cookies and chocolate chips.” What does Santa feed his reindeer? “Carrot sticks.” Why is Rudolph’s nose red? “’Cause he was born that way.”

Students’ letters to Santa Claus raise almost $5,000 BY SERAINE PAGE
Miles Jackman Kindergartener, 5 How do you think Santa gets into your house to deliver presents? “I think he goes under the door. But he turns invisible, that’s for sure.” How does he get around the world to deliver toys in one night? “Because of his reindeer — they fly.” What does Santa feed his reindeer? “Carrots and lettuce. I think ranch dressing, too.” Why is Rudolph’s nose red? “Because he wants it to be red.”
Hayden Hamann Kindergartener, 6 How do you think Santa gets into your house to deliver presents? “If you don’t have a chimney, he just goes through the door. If you have a chimney, he goes down it.” How does he get around the world to deliver toys in one night? “He flies. He flies fast.” Why is Rudolph’s nose red? “Because he went in the (cold) air in the sky at night.” Inside: More Silverdale kids talk Christmas on A13
Santa will be busy this week reading nearly 5,000 letters written by Cougar Valley Elementary students who participated in a special campaign to raise money for charity. The letters were placed inside a large, red mailbox in the school cafeteria as part of Macy’s Believe campaign, which donates $1 per letter to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Macy’s has pledged to donate up to $1 million toward the foundation this year. On average, the foundation grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition every 38 minutes, according to the nonprofit’s website. At the end of the day on Tuesday, students had written 4,984 which means nearly $5,000 will be donated by the students of just one school. Two students alone wrote 630 letters between the both of them. Lauren Heidt and Maddy Higgs, both 8, wanted to make sure that plenty of money was raised by their school through the campaign. While they did wish for one or two things for themselves, they mostly just wanted to write for a good cause. “I just wanted to make kids’ wishes come true,” said Higgs. “This is the best day ever.” Both second-grade students said they also realized they are different than MakeSEE SANTA LETTERS, A13

The Bremerton Board of Education’s newest director was sworn in Dec. 12 during the last board meeting for the year. District four director Alyson Rotter repeated her oath as read by Dr. Aaron Leavell,superintendent. Director Carolynn Perkins was also sworn into her number five position by Leavell. Both Rotter and Perkins’ terms expire in 2017. Perkins, who served as board president, also turned over her gavel. Following the turn over, the board reorganized the board of directors during a nomination process to select a new president, vice president and auditor. Director Scott Rahm was selected to serve as the president, and director David Rubie was selected as vice-president. Both will serve one-year terms, according to district policy. Ken Watkins, will serve as the board auditor. “It’s been a wonderful start to the school year,” said Rahm. “I may have to be the voice for all of us at times, but it feels good that I’m surrounded by a good group of people here.” Perkins added that she believes Rahm will do a fine job in his new position. “He’s been one that has asked questions — always really good questions — and is very knowledgable,” she said. “I know he’ll do a wonderful job.” Rahm said he’s looking forward to teamwork. “My goal is to keep the teamwork going,” he said. “To really support the hard work that everyone does and really just govern the operations and not manage.” Rotter spoke of her excitement at the end of the public meeting. “I’m glad that it’s finally here. It’s a long process,” she said of campaigning. “It’s a nice way to end the year. I’m just glad to be a part of the team.” The next board meeting will be Jan. 2 at 5 p.m. in the board room at 134 Marion Ave. N. in Bremerton. $ $$$$$$$$$$ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ (With or Without Title) $ some restrictions apply $ $ $ $$$$$$$$$$

Friday, December 20, 2013 | Central Kitsap Reporter
A holiday reminder This week, I sat in traffic for almost two hours in what is normally about a 25-minute commute from my home on Bainbridge Island to my office in Silverdale. It was Monday morning and I sincerely thought about turning around, going home and going back to bed. But the reporter in me said I needed to see what was ahead. I heard sirens before I ever left home and my husband looked on the Bainbridge Fire District website, so I knew there had been an accident somewhere near the Agate Pass Bridge. The website said it could be an hour before the accident scene was cleared. I headed out anyway. I easily got out on the highway because there was no traffic heading south and a nice driver let me in to head north. I sat about 200 feet from my driveway for 30 minutes and then creeped along for another 45 minutes until I got to the bridge. It was soon obvious that it was a very serious accident. It had been a head-on just on the north side of the bridge. Later in the day, I learned through a Washington State Patrol news release that the accident is suspected to involve drugs or alcohol. It was just another reminder of how vigilant we all have to be at this time of year. According to state data, 49 people have been killed in Washington in the past four years between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, due to impaired driving. The WSP and other law enforcement agencies are adding extra DUI patrols during this time as a way to try to decrease the number of impaired drivers on the road and the number of accidents. Kitsap County law enforcement agencies are participating in that. Too, many tow companies and taxi drivers are offering their services free of charge to get intoxicated drivers home without incident, during the holiday time when office parties and other gatherings can mean overindulgence in alcohol. We each bear a responsibility to not drink and drive. We also bear the responsibility to stop anyone else who may be over the limit. Don’t worry about being seen as the “teetotaler do-gooder” or the “mother” in the group. If your friend or coworker shouldn’t be behind the wheel, then stop them. Take their keys. Stand in front of the door. Do whatever it takes. And remember, it can happen anywhere, anytime. Just because its 8 a.m. on Monday morning doesn’t mean someone who shouldn’t be drinking, isn’t out on the road. Driving is a responsibility, not a privilege. During the holidays, we mourn with those who have lost loved ones to drunk drivers. And we pledge to do all we can to keep it from happening to others.

Really in the dog house this time I have been a pet owner most of my life. Growing up, we lived in a rural, small farm type environment. We had all types of animals at various times which included everything from chickens and ducks to the larger variety such as horses and cows. The Christmas before I turned 6, Santa brought me a pony on Christmas Eve. Yes, one of my Dad’s fellow firefighter friends dressed up in the full Santa regalia and brought my gift — a small Shetland pony named Dolly — up the front driveway of my house on the night before Christmas. In real life, I actually got to live out the number one dream of every little girl in America. Many would say I was spoiled, and I guess I was in a way. I did not come from a family with money. There were years where things were very tight, but I was rich in the way of life we lived. It allowed opportunities like having a pony as a little girl. Now days, the number of animals in my world have been significantly reduced down to two fish who are Cosmo and Wanda and a dog named Baer. About four years ago, we rescued Baer from a situation where his real owner had to leave him with friends and they simply did not have the space or time for him.
Colleen Smidt We made space and Baer became a part of our family. Baer is a chewer when he gets bored. So that means at night he has a 4-foot by 6-foot chain-link kennel in the basement that he has to sleep in so that I don’t wake up to a world of shredded socks, blankets and chewed up pieces of furniture every morning. He also loves to work very hard until he slips off the nice nylon collars I purchase for him and chews them up. The chewing does not stop at the nylon and moves on to the plastic clips and whatever ID tag attached until it is all unrecognizable. This past week, Baer decided to launch an escape attempt from
his downstairs kennel. He managed to work some of the links apart and create a hole to worm his way through. As he wormed, the temporary metal chain collar we had on him wrapped itself around the pedal of Nick’s bike that was parked next to the kennel. When the bike tipped over, it scared him and he twisted and drug it partially across the basement. Hearing all this noise I went down to investigate. It was around 10 p.m. and all I had on my agenda was heading for bed after a very long day. The chain had twisted enough that, in order to keep it from very quickly choking Baer, both my son, Nick, and I had to hold the bike in an odd elevated position. My husband, Jason, raided most of the tools in his shop but none of the cutters we had were strong enough to cut through that thickness of chain. Compounding the situation was the fact that Nick and I could not put the bike down on the ground so that enough leverage could be gained for the use of wrenches or sockets to dismantle the pedal on the bike and slip free the chain. I even drenched Baer’s SEE DOG HOUSE A5

Helping older parents stay happy and healthy If you’re fortunate enough to have one or both parents still living, you may have noticed a role reversal taking place in your relationship. Remember the days when mom shuttled you to the doctor whenever you were sick? Now, it may be you who’s driving her to her medical appointments. Perhaps you’ve become even more involved in managing her healthcare needs, serving as her healthcare proxy, moving her into your home to care for her, or even having to select a long-term care facility for her to live in. Whatever the case, it’s natural to feel challenged — and, yes, intimidated — in the role you’ve undertaken.
But if you stay positive and proactive, you’ll be in a great position to advocate for your parents’ optimal care. And, really, what better way is there to say “Thank You” for all they’ve done for you over the years? The following recommendations will help you understand what may be happening to your parents as they age. Stay vigilant to sudden changes. Typically, sudden changes arise from sudden problems. Your elderly father who becomes confused one week but was alert and oriented the week before, or becomes unsteady walking and starts falling, is likely experiencing an acute problem — an infection,

head in olive oil hoping that I could slide the chain over his head. That did not work either. Finally, after half an hour of exhausting all of our options as well as dealing with a nearly hysterical 12-year-old boy who was scared for his dog, I broke down and called for the Bremerton Fire Department to be dispatched. Having also grown up in that firefighter family, I knew that they would have the bolt cutters we needed to snap that chain. Two very nice firefighters rolled up to the house less than 10 minutes later. It took three of us to
conditions can cause gradual decline. However, before jumping to the conclusion that Alzheimer’s disease is the culprit, recognize that your parent may be experiencing an altogether different problem: a vitamin B12 deficiency, an under-active thyroid, Parkinson’s disease or depression, to name a few. Recently, I was told of an elderly woman living in a nursing home whose family, assuming she had dementia, had moved her there after she had gradually stopped speaking. After a doctor’s examination, and performing a brief procedure on her, she was back to her former lively and communicative self.

A miracle? Not exactly. The doctor had simply removed bullet-sized pieces of wax from her ears. She’d stopped speaking because her ears were too plugged to hear. Know your parent’s medicine cabinet. Familiarize yourself with the medications your parent takes: what each one is for and how often they take them. Make sure you notify each doctor your parent visits of all the medicine they take, including over-the-counter products. Ask what side effects you might observe from each medication. Discourage ageist attitudes. Simply put, ageism is prejudice against the elderly. It exists in many forms, but can be particularly damaging to an older person’s self-esteem when it assumes that all of their woes are
age-related. Address not just symptoms, but emotions, too. There is disease and then there is a lack of ease, security or well-being. which can manifest itself in a myriad of emotions in an elderly person: fear, grief, boredom, embarrassment and sadness among them. The fact is, these emotions can be every bit as debilitating as disease. Strive to maximize your parent’s quality of life. No matter our age, we all want to enjoy life to the fullest and have the capability to do the things we want to. Improving the enjoyment of life and functional ability are the cardinal goals of geriatric care. Sometimes, it’s the small gestures that have the most profound impact.
If you don’t make your final arrangements, who will? Surely, it’s not a responsibility you want to leave to your children. Talk to one of our counselors or funeral directors to find out why planning in advance is one of the most economical and loving things you can do for your family. It lessens the financial and emotional burden from them during a difficult time and spares them from making the painful decisions. You will provide your family a sense of relief and a true gift: peace of mind.

Council may revisit tourism next year BY KEVAN MOORE KMOORE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
The Bremerton City Council is standing by its decision to defund Visit Kitsap Peninsula next year. At least for now. On Dec. 4, the city council voted 5-4 to remove $20,000 worth of lodging tax funding in the city’s 2014 budget to Visit Kitsap Peninsula, a local nonprofit that promotes tourism in Kitsap County. During a study session last week, the council revisited that decision, but Council President Greg Wheeler
ultimately decided that it will be something that can be taken up by next year’s resized and revamped council. The move to withhold VKP funding originated with councilwoman Leslie Daugs, who was recently tapped by county Democrats to replace outgoing county commissioner Josh Brown. Daugs said that VKP’s website and promotional literature is often filled with typos, incorrect information and doesn’t do a good enough job promoting Bremerton. The Kitsap County Board
3276 NW Plaza RD Ste 103 Silverdale 360-692-4030 www.tedbrownmusic.com
of Commissioners, meanwhile, have taken a completely different tack. Last week, they voted to award VKP, the county’s tourism agency, a two-year contract for region-wide tourism marketing services. “When so many initiatives are happening in our community to develop the tourism economy, now is the time to provide stability in funding for marketing our region and communities,” said Commissioner Rob Gelder. “It’s not a time to retract, but to charge forward with a plan of attack to increase our share of the
tourism market.” According to Eric Baker, a special projects manager for the commissioners’ office, the county wants to ensure continuity on several projects including a recently approved National Park Service grant for the Kitsap Peninsula Water Trails Management Program. The project is scheduled to start sometime next year and involves partnerships with multiple jurisdictions and counties. VKP co-partnered with Kitsap County on the grant and will work with county staff to coordinate meetings with the Kitsap Peninsula Water Trails Alliance, regional stakeholders and the National Park Service.
Friday, December 20, 2013
“Visit Kitsap Peninsula is a valuable project and marketing resource for Kitsap County,” Baker said. “We especially appreciated their professionalism and ability to work with stakeholders like the North Kitsap Trails Association to create the Kitsap Peninsula Water Trails program. It was a big success and is now part of Kitsap County’s region-wide Non-Motorized Transportation Plan.” As part of the two-year contract, Visit Kitsap Peninsula will work with staff at Kitsap County Parks to increase utilization and attendance of events at county owned venues, as well as collaborate with other tourismbased organizations and activi-
ties in the county. The contract also includes funds for a major technical upgrade of the VKP website. John Kuntz, president of the VKP Board of Directors said, “This is definitely an important milestone for Kitsap’s tourism industry. We are grateful to all of the commissioners for taking this historic leadership action and look forward to working together to promote the region’s natural assets and create new economic opportunities.” Visit Kitsap Peninsula was founded in 1983 and is recognized as the official state designated tourism marketing agency for the Kitsap Peninsula. Its offices are located in Silverdale.

Mr. and Mrs. Claus are making their rounds BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
Here in Kitsap County, Santa comes around long before Dec. 25 every year. In fact, he and his partnerin-crime, Mrs. Claus, have been making early appearances in the area for the past 25 years. The pair, also known as Dave and Dee Riley, are the ones who book up the Clauses’ day planner as early as September. “Word gets out,” said Dave Riley. “This year I thought we were going to do six (appearances).” As of mid-December, the couple is scheduled to appear at 16 different locations. It could be because Mr. Riley is a dead-ringer for Santa Claus with his clear blue eyes, naturally rosy red cheeks and thick white beard. His belly, which Mrs. Claus claims “is all him” also adds to his believable appearance. Or, it could be because the duo show up for free to anyone who asks.
“Candy canes … that’s all they need to pay us,” Dee Riley said. The candy canes go to the children who sit on Santa’s lap. In exchange, sometimes Santa will get a hug, a cookie or even a letter. The red sack that he carries around with him is full of drawings and letters from kids. Depending on the year, gift requests vary from iPods to Barbies to Batman toys. The couple — who have been married for 45 years — put on quite the show for those who come to see them. “Give and take,” Dave Riley said of having a good marriage. “We get mad once in a while. (We) take a couple hours and we get back at it.” It may also help that the couple has married three times through vow renewals, Dave Riley joked. Young and old, the Clauses live for entertaining their crowds. In between acts, they’ll go out to dinner in a restaurant in full garb. The attention they garner is from people of all

Mr. and Mrs. Claus, aka Dee and Dave Riley, have enjoyed putting on free shows for more than 25 years. ages. In all his years of playing the role of Saint Nick, Riley has only met one other acting Santa, and it was on somebody’s lawn. When comparing his act to others, Riley supposes there’s only a few things that set him apart: “Well, I got a
real beard,” he said. “I think I’m jollier than most.” There’s always a candy cane for the young ones who come up to greet him, Mr. Riley said. Even if he’s just wearing a red Santa cap and street clothes, children will come barreling up to him howling, “Santa!”
when they see him. For those who must know, Santa’s favorite cookies are peanut butter ones. “You want to be Christmas-y and you want to make people happy,” said Mrs. Riley. “We both love to dress up.” They’ve got the Mr. and Mrs. Claus piece down pat with authentic outfits and other physical attributes. Their act, however, is what really makes the little ones believe. If Mr. Claus forgets a child’s name, Mrs. Claus will lean down and whisper it in his ear. Sometimes kids who are too scared to sit on Santa’s lap will sit on his counterpart’s lap instead. In every action, they showcase teamwork they’ve learned over the years. “You make it a jolly thing,” said Dee Riley. “We figure we’re doing some good somewhere.” Many of their events are for nonprofit organizations, such as Martha & Mary, Holly Ridge Center and senior centers. Their favorite people to perform for are those with special
needs, Mr. Claus said. The pair has visited Martha & Mary for at least the last five years, said Renee Eicher, center director. “They were very, very good,” she said. “Infants and toddlers are always a bit challenging because they don’t like costumes and whatnot.” But that never fazes the Rileys. They sit and wait for the little one to make the decision. This year, Eicher watched as one little girl contemplated whether or not she wanted to sit on Santa’s lap. Her grandmother said she wouldn’t since she was frightened by him last year. Much to the surprise of those around, the little girl was thrilled when it was her turn. “She flew up on his lap and just gave him a huge hug around his neck. She was just so cute,” said Eicher. “I think it’s all just part of the magic of Christmas.”

Niche bead shop celebrates a decade in business BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
Beth Shea is the bead queen. As owner of echo artworks, a bead shop and gallery, Shea estimates her shop displays well over one million beads. It’s easy to believe as every wall is covered in brightly colored strands of beading materials. Her shop on N. Callow Avenue is a jewelry designer’s paradise considering she carries everything from vintage beads to strings of beads and full kits to create jewelry. “There’s a lot of product to select from,” said customer Darla White. “She’s a master at this stuff.” Last month, Shea celebrated 10 years of being in the bead business. Her collection is especially full of vintage and natural beads.
Originally, she did not plan to be an entrepreneur. But a broken leg changed all that after Shea graduated from college with degrees in biology and environmental studies. She planned to go on and get a master’s degree, but her leg hindered her from continuing. “I really thought I was going to be a big biology nerd, but that’s OK, things change,” she said. So, she decided to stay put in Bremerton and followed another passion: her bead artwork. “Even though it had a bad reputation, it was a good neighborhood, so we decided to open here,” she said. By we, Shea means she and her mother, Penny Morse. “She’s the (real) boss,” joked Shea. She lovingly refers to her mother as “chief organizing officer” of the shop. Morse straightens
up behind Shea, and tidies up the shop here and there. Morse dabbles in designing jewelry, but admits she is still learning from her professional jewelry-making daughter. “It’s just, to me, amazing how her brain works,” she said. “She’s just an amazing teacher.” It’s a niche business that’s tough, Shea said. But the job gives her flexibility that she couldn’t have working at a big retail corporation. “The economy has not been kind to bead stores,” she said, noting several that have closed. To supplement the store’s income, Shea travels around the country to bead shows to teach and sell her work. Her travels have taken her as far as New York City and as close as Arizona. She also offers classes in her store, including basic beginner beading classes

tributes to the jewelry world by creating pieces specifically for other designers as well. “I’m a many-hatted entrepreneur,” she said. Because of her science background, Shea often finds herself running off on scientific tangents during her classes. She joked that her students learn more about pearls than they probably ever wanted to know. “There really is a science to making things look
right,” she said. As a child, Shea played with her grandmother’s costume jewelry. Then, she was handed tools by male family members and learned how to take things apart. As a result, she started taking apart her grandmother’s jewelry and reassembling it, which triggered her passion to start c re at i n g her own.

Students test underwater robots from pool deck BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
On Tuesday morning, students from Mountain View Middle School gathered around the edges of the pool of the Bremerton YMCA. They weren’t getting ready to swim, but rather test motorized projects known as ROVs — remote operating vehicles. “I didn’t know anything about soldering or cutting wire, but after this project I know how to do all that stuff,” said Divinity Dodge, an eighth-grade-student. Around 50 students took their ROVs to the waters for testing. The students are part of Bobbie Busch’s advanced class which uses Project Lead the Way (PLTW) as part of the school’s STEM curriculum focused on science and mathematics. Since October, the eighth graders have been working on their model ROVs to get their projects just right. Tuesday was the first time they could test their design to see if it would work properly, Busch said. “They have had to learn to
solder, cut PVC pipe, follow wiring diagrams for switches and get their boats to neutral buoyancy,” Busch said. The students were required to design their own models as well. Corinne Beach, an engineer at PSNS, provided support during the project to guide students and help with troubleshooting. Beach also brought Navy divers with her to assist the students if their models got tangled or stuck in the pool. “This is an effort to get students interested in math and science,” she said. “You see the lightbulbs go on. That’s our biggest reward. For all of us here and the excitement for what they’re doing.” Beach said the work the students are doing easily translates into real-life careers, which makes what they’re doing much more relevant. Navigating the ROVs in the water is similar to the machines marine biologists use during research, she said. It is also frequently used by divers to recover equipment and other miscellaneous items underwa-
ter. For the pool exercise, students were required to make sure the model— made mostly of PVC piping and wiringcould rove along the bottom of the pool. The pool was set up to mimic the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, and students were requested to pick up items from the bottom of the pool. PVC piping designed as an “oil rig” had openings that needed to be capped by the ROVs. If the ROV failed at a task on the checklist, student groups were required to go back to the drawing board and troubleshoot. For some groups that included adjusting pieces on the ROV at makeshift labs set up with soldering irons and other pieces. A few parents sat on the sidelines watching their students operating their machines. “It’s really a neat opportunity to have the Navy involved in some capacity here,” said James Lassiter, a parent. Lassiter and his wife, Brenna Herrmann-Lassiter, were both equally impressed

she was at his office with her daughter. She also said Al-Agba had made an unexpected visit to her residence during which he touched her inappropriately. She said the events happened in February and March 2012. Testimony in the matter was heard in October and a ruling was made public this week by Mark Triplett, presiding officer and health law judge for the state. In the decision, Triplett wrote that “the testimony of the respondent (Al-Agba) is credible and supported by the totality of the evidence presented in this matter.” He also wrote, “based on the totality of the evidence, the presiding officer finds the complainant’s testimony to be less credible.” All charges were dismissed in an order from the department of health dated Nov. 8. The matter was not appealed by the complainant and is now considered closed. Dr. Al-Agba said recently that he was pleased with the ruling and that, as he said all along, he was “innocent of the charges.” “I knew that this never happened,” Al-Agba said. “And through listening to the testimony, that was proven.” Al-Agba said he became aware recently that the woman who filed the complaint against
him has done similar things previously with other medical professionals. “It’s clear that this is a pattern with her,” he said. The ruling stated that the department of health, which filed the complaint on behalf of the woman, failed to prove either charge with “clear and convincing evidence.” Al-Agba has continued to practice in Silverdale where he has a pediatrics practice with his daughter. “I also plan to work to change the (health department complaint) system so that something like this doesn’t happen to anyone again,” he said. He said the way the complaint system works, the State Health Department represents the complainant and that the final ruling is also made by a judge that is an employee of the health department. He hopes to work with lawmakers to devise a new system for handling complaints against medical professionals. Al-Agba has practiced medicine in Kitsap County for 43 years, including 17 years with The Doctors Clinic. He opened his own practice in 1986. Al-Agba said throughout the ordeal, his patients remained supportive and that the claim did little damage to his practice.

Woman busted for drugs at DOC office
15, the court amended the conditions of release and required bail or bond in the amount of $50,000. Shortly thereafter, Richins posted bond or bail and was released from custody. Richins’ case proceeded to jury trial Oct. 21. Judge Jeanette Dalton, presiding at trial, ordered her to be present when a verdict was reached. The jury reached a verdict Oct. 24. Richins, though, did not appear that day and Judge Dalton found her absence to be voluntary.
Sandra Lee Johnston, 46, a transient, has been charged with possession of a controlled substance following her Dec. 11 arrest for drug possession at the Department of Corrections office on Kitsap Way. According to a police report, Johnston was checking in at the office as required when her Community Corrections Officer found her purse and found one small round purple tablet and three smaller round orange tablets. The officer, using the website drugs.com, determined that all of the pills are schedule II narcotics. “Johnston advised that the purse was hers, but she had no idea whose pills they were,” a police report states. “She said that they were definitely not hers.” Johnston was then arrested.
The woman said that Lansing is an acquaintance of her roommate and had stolen items from the home on earlier occasions. Lansing was charged Oct. 8 with trafficking in stolen property in the second degree. In the second case, a woman

Bremerton resident Christopher James Lansing, 25, of 2449 Rocky Point Road, has had some bad luck at pawn shops lately. He was charged in October for trafficking in stolen property in the second degree and picked up a trafficking stolen property in the first degree charge this month after trying to pawn stolen goods. In the first case, which took place in late September, a Bremerton woman whose $500 bicycle was stolen from her back porch in the 2800 block of 19th Street, discovered it at a Pawn Pros the next day. The officer who took the original report responded to the store and found the bike had been pawned by Christopher James Lansing, 25, of 2449 Rocky Point Road for $50.
Bremerton resident Rebecca Louise Richins, 33, of the 300 block of Lafayette Avenue, has been charged with bail jumping. Richins, who is also known as Rebecca Presler, was arraigned June 17 in Kitsap County Superior Court on one count of possession of a methamphetamine, a Class C felony. On Oct.

lunchroom assistant who invited the local Macy’s staff to come out and support a letter drive. She did, however, tear up when Higgs and Heidt handed her their plastic bag stuffed with letters to donate to the campaign. They had spent most of the previous two evenings writing out letters. “There’s a lot of kids that are struggling with their lives out there,” said LakesLoveless. “If we can change one or two lives with this donation, that’s amazing.” For Lakes-Loveless,
the event is personal and always touching. Her niece passed away at the age of 4, and, for her, it is a way of honoring a loved one who previously benefitted from Make-A-Wish. After seeing the Believe campaign information on television, the school employee decided to give it a try and bring Santa’s mailbox to the school.

Macy’s store manager. “I think it’s a phenomenal experience for the kids to experience it,” he said. “If you read some of the letters, it’s so heartwarming.” Some letters from students requested Santa bring cleaner water to foreign countries. Others just wanted to spend more time with their families. “Really, it’s all about the children,” Ramoso said of the campaign. As a result of last year’s campaigning, Ramoso said a little girl from the area had her wish granted to
visit Japan. She wanted to visit Hello Kitty Land, he said. The campaign started from a simple letter written in 1897. An 8-year-old girl named Virginia O’Hanlon wrote a letter to the New York Sun newspaper asking about the existence of Santa Claus. “The editor of the Sun, Francis P. Church replied, “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist…”, according to the Macy’s website. As a result, the

Now through Dec. 24, Macy’s will donate $1 per letter to Make-AWish for Santa’s letters. “I’m so proud of you guys,” Lakes-Loveless told her last lunchroom period students. “There are several children that will have their wishes granted (because of you).”

Road dedicated to local war hero Bud Hawk BY SERAINE PAGE
A portion of the road that John “Bud” Hawk once drove to and from his beloved Brownsville Elementary School now bears a memorial sign dedicated to him. Hawk, a lifelong Kitsap County resident and Army veteran — known for being awarded the Medal of Honor — passed away on Nov. 4 at 89 years old. Last Thursday morning, a small group gathered to honor the former educator and WWII veteran outside the school he loved. The sun broke through for a few brief moments before the rains came, and Kitsap County Commissioner Josh Brown

noted that county and school officials felt it was important to honor his legacy on the road on which he drove on many times over his 31-year career in the district.

Brown honored three family members with a smaller version of the brown metal sign prior to walking to the corner where the larger sign is placed. After Hawk’s son, Mark Hawk, took down the cardboard to reveal the newly bolted sign, a small group of ASB (Associated Student Body) members and staff gathered to hear Hawk’s daughter say a few words. “Dad would’ve been very appreciative,” said Marilyn Harrelson. “He spent many hours on these roads.” Harrelson presented current Brownsville Elementary Principal Toby Tebo with the proclamation of the road dedication to hang in the school, framed with some photos of Hawk teaching inside the school years ago. Several students who
gathered were also honored with a commemorative Congressional Medal of Honor coin. “He would be very proud of you all,” Harrelson told the group of students as she handed each a coin. Sixth grader Meagan Green was elated to receive

DENTAL HEALTH TIPS! If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, the good news is that it can often be treated successfully. The first nonsurgical step usually involves a special cleaning called “scaling and root planning,” to remove plaque and tartar deposits on the tooth and root surfaces. The dentist may also recommend medications in a pill form, as Dr. Dawn Divano a mouthrinse or a substance that the dentist places directly into the periodontal pocket.
long at the very school she attends. “I think it made our school better,” she said. “I’m really glad they put it in front of the school so everyone would remember John Hawk.” During last Wednesday’s Central Kitsap School Board meeting, a mention was made of the possibility of Brownsville being renamed in honor of Hawk. A small committee has been formed, and the renaming of the school is in its early stages, according to district staff. “It would have meant a lot to him,” Harrelson said of the sign for her dad. “He said the thing he’s always been most proud of is to be an educator.” Student Chloe Ashcraft, 12, said the placement of the sign is appropriate in front of the school that Hawk gave so much to over the years. “I know that a lot of kids that met him were inspired to be a teacher like him. He was their inspiration,” she said. “It shows that the community actually cared about him. He was someone people really loved and adored. It really touched me. I think I might not get over this for a while. It was really, really incredible,” she said. In June 1943, Hawk joined the U.S. Army. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 359th Infantry Regiment, 90th Infantry. For his heroic actions on Aug. 20, 1944, around Chambois, France, Hawk earned the Medal of Honor.

Young is top choice to replace Angel BY DANNIE OLIVEAUX PORT ORCHARD INDEPENDENT EDITOR
It took Republican precinct committee officers (PCOs) from the 26th District about three hours on Dec. 4 to select the top three candidates to replace Jan Angel in the state House of Representatives. They came up with either a technology consultant, filmmaker or attorney — all from Gig Harbor — to become her replacement. After casting ballots seven times, the PCOs came up with Jesse Young, Adam Berman and Doug
Cloud, who finished first, second and third, respectively. The meeting was held at the Givens Community Center in Port Orchard. The candidates will face the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners and Pierce County Council, who will select the person to fill Angel’s vacancy at a joint meeting. A date has not yet been scheduled. Angel, the 26th District state representative, defeated Sen. Nathan Schlicher for the district’s state senate seat in November. Before the meeting, fliers from
the Republican Liberty Caucus in the 26th Legislative District (and signed by Tony Stephens), were distributed that listed Berman as its top choice followed by Young, Cloud and Spencer Hutchins. Stephens was elected as chair over the night’s proceedings. But despite the fliers, the PCOs chose Young as their top selection. It took the PCOs four ballots to pick Young as the top choice. On the first three ballots, none of the candidates got a majority of the 51 votes cast. Young was the top
vote-getter on each of the first three ballots with 22 votes. He locked up the group’s top choice with 27 votes on the fourth ballot. Young, a Gig Harbor resident, ran twice for Congress and works as a technology consultant. “It’s humbling, especially after the process we went through, but it’s encouraging just to know enough people think you can make a difference and be a positive influence,” Young said after the meeting. “If I am appointed, then I will be effective on what I advocated to the group here tonight.” Young said he can bring some business experience to the House on behalf of the district.
“If you look at what Olympia has, it does have a lot of my skill-set representatives,” he said. “If you look at the 26th District located between Tacoma and Seattle and there is an opportunity to court a lot of high-tech jobs that are well paying that can fit this community.” Young said his experience can help him “walk across the aisle” and help benefit the district. Adam Berman, a filmmaker from Gig Harbor, needed just one ballot to become the second choice. His closest competiton was Spencer Hutchins and South Kitsap Fire and Rescue Batallion Chief Doug Richards with nine votes each. Richards had 20 votes, Cloud
got 14 and Hutchins had 13 on the first vote for the third choice. Hutchins withdrew his name, and Cloud, a Gig Harbor attorney, became the group’s third pick with 25 votes to Richard’s 24 on the final ballot. Duane Hatch, who was also vying for consideration to fill Angel’s post, received the least votes of the six candidates during the night. Kitsap County Republican Party Chair Chris Tibbs said the party is thrilled to have participated in the selection process and hopes for a successful and victorious new year. “We have three solid candidates,” said Tibbs.

Police find stash of stolen mail Bremerton police are sorting through an estimated 500 pieces of mail discovered Sunday in a wooded area off Lake Flora Road. They estimate that there are as many as 100 or more potential victims in the case. Most of the mail came from addresses in Mason and Pierce counties, but some was also from Kitsap County. Sergeant Kevin Crane said that a property owner was notified about the large piles of mail by some brush pickers.
Crane also said he has never seen a stolen mail case of this magnitude. “We have stolen mail occasionally here and there, but have never had it to this extent,” Crane said. Investigators continue to sort through all of the mail and identify victims. They estimate there may be nearly 100 victims who may not even realize they have had mail stolen. In amongst the stacks of mail are checks, gift cards, medical information, financial informa-
tion, bills, photographs, packages and holiday cards. Investigators will be processing the recovered items in hopes of identifying persons responsible. They will also be working with the US Postal Inspectors and attempt to notify the numerous victims in this case. Bremerton Police caution people to watch their mail carefully and to use the post office for outgoing mail rather than placing outgoing mail in rural mail boxes.

Families have plenty to celebrate Christmas is extra special this year for the Tates and several other Kitsap families. The gift: Their children’s health. Here’s a look at some children the North Kitsap Herald reported on earlier this year – children their parents are calling their Christmas miracles.
By RICHARD WALKER Kitsap Week
OULSBO — For once, a conk on the head led to good
news. It used to be that if Isaac Tate hit his head, it could spark an epileptic seizure. But it happened recently while playing and … nothing. That’s great news for a 10-year-old boy who last December suffered 96 seizures in one day. In fact, he’s been seizure-free for eight months now. A medication that had a 1 percent chance of being effective is working. And Isaac doesn’t have to have surgery. “His seizures are in remission,” his mom, Chelsea Tate, said Dec. 17. “He’s able to play on the playground again.”
At age 3, Ijah knew pain. Pancreatitis affected his body’s ability to produce insulin and other digestive enzymes. The inflammation caused severe abdominal pain. In August, doctors at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital removed his pancreas and transplanted insulinproducing cells to his liver. Doctors also removed his appendix, gall bladder, spleen, and a portion of

Do you suffer from foot pain? What Is Hallux Rigidus? Hallux rigidus is a disorder of the joint located at the base of the big toe. It causes pain and stiffness in the joint, and with time it gets increasingly harder to bend the toe. ‘Hallux” refers to the big toe, while “rigidus” indicates that the toe is rigid and cannot move. Hallux rigidus is actually a form of degenerative arthritis. Symptoms • Pain and stiffness in the big toe during use (walking, standing, bending, etc.)

On Dec. 16, he rode the school bus for the first time. “A month and a half after surgery, he all of a sudden started taking off — the pain was gone, he speaks in sentences now, he runs and bounces. I couldn’t ask for anything more for the holidays,” said his mom, Sheila Williamson. “It’s going to be a wonderful Christmas.” The family is still not without challenges. Ijah’s dad, Tim, a union electrician, has been out of work since April. “We’re praying that work comes around,” she said. Tim also has pancreatitis, and daughter Aleksys, 11, is showing minimal symptoms, but no pain. Amid the pain, some blessings: Home Depot donated hardwood flooring for the Williamsons’ home — easier to roll an IV pole on wheels — and Ashley Furniture donated new furniture to improve the flow

Ian Gunnell Ian Gunnell, 7, completed his last chemo treatment at the end of November.

Ian attends school at the hospital. “That consistency and learning and being with other kids, that’s been great for him,” Tanya said. Melissa Holmes, a family friend, said the emotional support from the community means a lot to the Gunnells. “Cancer is long and hard — and the hard doesn’t go away,” she said. Incidentally, the community raised $120,000 in five and a half months for Ian’s fund. The Gunnells are looking forward to being home “and trying to figure out what the ‘new normal’ means,” Tanya said. “We

The silver lining: Parents of children with epilepsy have sought out Isaac’s mom for advice and support. And the Epilepsy Foundation Northwest may start a support group in North Kitsap.
