2013 REWIND: Best of the Bainbridge Police Blotter. A5

Island hit by holiday mail thefts Bainbridge police report 79 victims BY CECILIA GARZA Bainbridge Island Review


The Year in Review To protest, and to party, Bainbridge took it to the streets in 2013. It wasn’t just angry homeowners or festive Fourth-of-July celebrators who prompted headlines over the past year. Crashes at the bridge, ferry riders going overboard, a sunken tug in Eagle Harbor, and continued intrigue at city hall kept Review reporters busy throughout 2013. Here’s our recap of some of the stories that made headlines in 2013.

JANUARY City OKs $20 car fee: Driving on Bainbridge Island will get a little more expensive for residents. The

Bainbridge city council, as members of the Bainbridge Island Transportation Benefit District, passed a $20 car tab fee on island cars in an effort to inject more money into the island’s ailing and underfunded roads. Auto tab fees will be collected at the Department of Licensing when locallyowned vehicles are registered. Jay Inslee sworn in: Bainbridge Island’s Jay Inslee took the oath of office to become Washington’s 23rd governor. Inslee delivered his inaugural address to a joint session of the Legislature after being sworn in during a mid-morning ceremony in the Capitol rotunda.

Bainbridge Island police have identified at least 79 victims of mail theft since Dec. 21. Police received multiple reports of residents finding abandoned bags of loose mail and suspicious circumstances involving mailboxes. In the earliest of the four reports, a green plastic bag was discovered on Saturday, Dec. 21 in the recycling bin of a Fletcher Bay residence. The bag contained numerous pieces of unopened mail from across the island. Police counted 173 pieces of mail, including seven opened items. The mail named 65 victims, all of which were addressed to Manzanita Bay residences. The majority were addressed to residents of Olympic Terrace Avenue and Bayview Boulevard. The opened mail contained items ranging from holiday cards to correspondence from bank and credit card companies. A second incident occurred just a few days later when a Fletcher Bay resident reported that her daughter had found their locking mailbox could not be opened. The previous day, the mailbox had been working properly. This time, it appeared that a piece of metal was lodged inside the lock to a point that the box could not be opened without turn to mail | A4

went into effect in 1994 but expired in 2004. The resolution followed ones in other states also prompted by the shooting massacre of children and teachers at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., and called for more extensive background checks for those seeking to purchase firearms. “For someone like me who believes this should happen, and that a strong majority of my community wants it to happen, this is an appropriate action to bring forward,” said Councilwoman Kirsten Hytopoulos, who originally drafted the resolution. It passed by a 5-1 vote. Committee says KPUD is best: The city of Bainbridge Island should hire the Kitsap Public Utility District to manage the city’s water utility, the Utility Advisory Committee told the council. The committee was charged in late 2012 with reviewing three management proposals the city had received for taking over the water utility. The committee said the KPUD was its preferred manager.


Feds file lawsuit against directors: Ten former directors and officers of Bainbridge Island’s defunct American Marine Bank were sued over allegations of

Friday, January 3, 2014 • Bainbridge Island Review allowing $18 million in irresponsible loans. The bank originally opened in 1948 by islanders who desired a financial institution a little closer than Seattle. The FDIC is suing four officers and six directors of the bank for breach of fiduciary duty, gross negligence and negligence, according to documents filed in the U.S. District Court in Tacoma. Shoreline creeping closer to Fort Ward barracks: Bainbridge Island’s Fort Ward housed soldiers for decades, and through multiple wars, before it was converted into a park. Now it faces a new battle — with nature. Erosion continued its inland creep toward the aging barracks that overlook the shore, particularly those at the northwestern end of the park. “That corner was about 14 feet from the bank four months ago,” said Terry Lande, executive director with the Metro Park & Recreation District. “The king tide we had in December beat up that area real good,” he said. “We lost four feet in a week.” Shelter sees rise in animal shootings: Officials with the West Sound Wildlife Shelter were startled and distressed at the rise in patients coming in with gunshot wounds. “There is a trend in shootings,” said Mike Pratt, direc-

tor of wildlife services for the West Sound Wildlife Shelter. “It’s very disturbing.” Pratt said that when he started working in wildlife rehab 20 years ago, shootings of animals weren’t uncommon, but with education the occurrences became rare. But in 2012 the shelter treated 52 patients with gunshot wounds, considerably higher than the normal. “We might have taken in two animals a year with shootings in past years,” he said. “Over the last two years it has just skyrocketed.” Islanders ask PSE to go coal free: They braved the cold morning warmed by their motivation to get their message heard: No more coal on Bainbridge Island. Coal Free Bainbridge held its first demonstration on the corner of Winslow Way and Highway 305, a prime spot to be seen by islanders headed on their morning commute. The group said it would be out on the corner each Tuesday until Earth Day. Coal Free Bainbridge is a local movement to not only educate islanders about where their power comes from, but to also sway Puget Sound Energy to stop using coal in its power plants. “We decided that we needed to get a group active around this issue, the first thing we need to do is educate the

CONTINUED FROM A2 island about where their energy is coming from,” said Erika Shriner, co-chairwoman of Coal Free Bainbridge. Arbitrator rules against city: The city of Bainbridge Island was wrong to suspend a police officer who was accused of stalking a councilwoman, an arbitrator called in to settle the longsimmering dispute ruled. Janet L. Gaunt issued her arbitration opinion Feb. 14 on the city’s discipline of Bainbridge Police Officer Scott Weiss. Gaunt said city officials did not have “just cause” to suspend Weiss for 160 hours, and said the city should pay Weiss any lost wages or benefits that stemmed from the suspension. Weiss, the former president of Bainbridge Island’s police union and a full-time officer for the city since 1991, had been criticized for following Kim Brackett after the councilwoman left a special budget meeting in October 2010 and went to another council member’s home for tea.

Around the Island 911

Woman arrested after scissors attack

A 26-year-old Bainbridge Island woman was charged with seconddegree assault after she allegedly tried to stab her husband with a pair of scissors on Christmas Eve after she told him she didn’t want to go to his parents’ house for the holiday. Nataly S. Rovik was charged with a felony count of second-degree assault in Kitsap County District Court on Dec. 26. According to court documents, police were called after a 911 dispatcher at Cencom reported a domestic dispute involving a Bainbridge couple on the island. The husband had called authorities in tears and said the incident began after his wife didn’t want to go to his parents’ house on Christmas Eve, then ripped a Christmas card for someone who no longer lived at the home. The man said his wife clawed him with her fingernails, which left marks on his neck, then went to

the bathroom. After he confronted her after she came out of the bathroom, the woman allegedly grabbed a pair of scissors from the sink and tried to stab him in the leg. The husband then tackled his wife, according to a certificate of probable cause in the court case, and pinned her to the floor as he tried to get the scissors. The wife bit her husband on both arms, breaking the skin, before he got the scissors away. After the husband let his wife get back up, she reportedly hit him in the face near his left eye and knocked out a contact lens. She then knocked over items, threw a box of coins at her husband, and began to cut electrical cords with scissors. The woman allegedly admitted to police that she tried to stab her husband with a pair of scissors, and also said she came at him with an iron, scratched him, and cut electrical cords. Bainbridge police arrested the woman for second-degree assault and third-degree mali-

cious mischief. The woman was booked into Kitsap County Jail just after 3 a.m. Christmas. Bail has been set at $25,000. SCOUT FUNDRAISER

The Year in Review

Best of the Blotter The Bainbridge Island Police Department sees its fair share of odd incidents every year. The Review has selected some of the most outlandish, bizarre and bewildering items of 2013 in an abridged version of its popular weekly report, the Police Blotter. Saturday, Feb. 2 1:31 a.m. A woman living on North Madison Avenue called police after she was awoken by harassing text messages. The texts continued all night and did not stop. She told officers that she had recently gotten into an argument with a friend from Bremerton who may have been responsible for the messages. While she was talking with police, the messages continued to arrive. “You smell like fish,” one message said. “You a slut, get a life (expletive),” another stated. Police called the number and left a voicemail saying that the texts amounted to harassment and requested that they stop. Police advised that the woman turn her phone off for the night. Officers called the number again later that day. A Bremerton woman answered and said she sent the texts, but used a function on her phone she had never used before. The function sent the same texts over and over again. She did not know how many times the messages were sent, and she didn’t know how to stop it. The woman said she sent the text for a friend. The island woman who received the calls knew both Bremerton women. Sunday, Feb. 3 4:34 a.m. Suquamish police notified Bainbridge officers about a man known for having three warrants for his arrest. An officer was dispatched to Clearwater Casino to apprehend the man. The man was found at the slot machines. An officer asked the man if he knew that he had warrants. The man replied, “Yeah, you caught me.” He was arrested. Sunday, March 10 9:09 p.m. An employee of the Town & Country Market said a teenage boy walked into the store, grabbed a 12-pack of Bud Light beer, and then walked downstairs to the lower level of the store. He then walked out the lower exit. The incident was caught on security cameras. Employees saw the license plate of the young man’s truck as he drove away. Using the license plate information, police went to the address where the vehicle was registered. Police found the young man, 18, and his mother at home. The teen said that he was short on gas money and another teenager asked him to steal beer for $15 and give it to them behind the store. But no one was behind the store after the theft, so he left. He didn’t want to keep the beer so he threw it into a ditch on New Brooklyn Road. Police could not locate the beer anywhere in the ditch. The teen was cited for theft and minor in possession of alcohol. 10:18 p.m. A woman was pulled over on Fletcher Bay Road after police observed her speeding, screeching her wheels to stop and drifting in and out of the lane. The woman said she had a couple of beers to drink. When police asked her where she had the beers she replied, “You know.” Police asked the woman to take roadside sobriety tests. She asked for her lawyer. Police said she was not under arrest,

so she agreed to begin the tests. She fell out of the car and then complained that the gravel on the roadway made the test unfair. She also fell after attempting to walk heel-to-toe. She then refused to take anymore tests and asked for her lawyer again. After refusing to take a portable breath test she was placed under arrest. At the station she became defiant and said she wanted her lawyer but didn’t remember his name. She refused to accept a public defender. She wanted to call her parents, but officers told her “no.” When officers attempted to contact the attorneys she asked for, they were not available. Police reports noted that the woman then became “arrogant and snippy.” She was then transported to the county jail. While en route to the jail, she insisted that people drink at island restaurants and drive drunk all the time and that she “was going to beat this.” She was booked into the jail where she continued to refuse to take a breath test or sign her Miranda rights paperwork. Tuesday, May 21 2:38 a.m. A resident on Renny Lane called 911 after hearing someone around their house and finding the back door open. Officers soon found a man sitting in a car near the home. The man said he was waiting for someone at a home down the street. Later that morning, neighbors encountered the man sleeping on their front porch. The man left the area after a resident came outside with a shotgun. Police caught up with the man in his truck. The man told officers that he had not been drinking and was not taking any drugs. He said he was trying to find a woman he met at a bar three months ago. The man told officers he could not provide any information at the time when he was asked more specific questions. He was arrested. Friday, May 31 8:10 p.m. Police were called for an “inappropriate and explicit” picture spray painted on High School Road. Officers found graffiti sprayed on the road stating “2013 Hoover” accompanied by a 10-foot-long graphic depiction of male genitalia. The city’s public works department was called to wash it off the street. Friday, June 7 8:43 a.m. A man living on Point Monroe Drive became angry at his neighbor, insisting that he did not have proper permits for work on his property. The man then stood in front of a

truck that had arrived to deliver a load of sand and prevented it from completing its delivery. The man then laid down in the road where the pile of sand was to be dumped. Officers checked with city employees who verified that the work was permitted and legal. The man was notified and left the scene. Sunday, June 9 5:55 a.m. A Fort Ward man reported a series of suspicious incidents that occurred over the past few weeks. First, a tire on his car, as well as one on his wife’s vehicle, were flat from nails at exactly the same place. Then a nearby stop sign was vandalized with spray paint. The words “Don’t” and “Poop” were written on it. They also discovered feces outside their bedroom window. They believe it came from a human. 7:29 p.m. An apartment resident on High School Road called police after his neighbor threw strawberry shortcake at him. The incident occurred while multiple neighbors were eating together in a common area. The man came outside, picked up various toys, walked up to a little girl and told her to “keep your [expletive] out of my yard.” He told police that he frequently found her toys in front of his apartment. Soon, the girl’s mother knocked on the man’s door and yelled at him for what he did, using “unflattering gay slurs.” Later, in the common area with their neighbors, the two began arguing again. She told the man to get off her yard and threw strawberry shortcake at him. Police informed the two that the common area was nobody’s yard. Saturday, July 6 8:14 a.m. Residents reported a suspicious man on a bicycle on Koura Road. Police asked the man to stop on the side of the road, but he said “no way” and sped off. The man on the bicycle led two patrol cars on a chase through the neighborhood. The man ultimately ditched the bike and fled into the Grand Forest. Officers found the bike but did not find the suspicious man. Officers discovered that the bike was stolen and returned it to its owner on Koura Road. Police responded to the same area one hour later when a resident on Miller Road found a young man in his back yard “acting crazy.” The resident said the young man kept screaming he was a drug abuser, then climbed over his fence. The young man “climbed and vaulted the tall fence like he was Spider-man,” the resident told police. Thursday, Aug. 1 12:37 p.m. A Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputy requested island back-up after pulling over a car with a raging driver on Madison Avenue and Highway 305. The deputy witnessed the driver stop his car in the middle of the road, jump out and run after an SUV. The driver said he was mad because of the SUV’s speed. The driver aggressively complained to the deputy about how police officers drive. Officers discovered that the man has a record of aggressive behavior and prior road rage incidents.


Officers told the man he could not leave his car in the middle of the roadway. The man calmed down and agreed to call police in the future. 9:01 p.m. Police responded to a domestic dispute on the north end of the island where a couple were loudly arguing. The argument began when the boyfriend chased the girlfriend with a crab earlier that day. She told officers he was being annoying and a verbal dispute grew from there. Saturday, Aug. 10 9:20 a.m. A woman went to her boyfriend’s house near Battle Point Park and found him in bed with two other women. She began screaming at the three, but the two women were intoxicated, and the man was so intoxicated he barely responded. The girlfriend pulled one woman out of the bed onto the floor. She flipped the mattress over, tossing the other woman on the floor, who then called 911. The girlfriend insisted that she was still together with the boyfriend, but the two women contested that account. Police could not speak with the man, however, as he ran out the back of the residence. The girlfriend called his cell phone so he could talk to police. He sounded drunk and said he did not want to deal with the situation or police. Police determined that a domestic violence situation did not occur and left the scene. Friday, Aug. 23 2:37 p.m. A process server told police he was assaulted while attempting to serve court documents to a Bainbridge resident. According to the employee, this was the second attempt to serve the papers. In the first attempt, the employee contacted the resident at his home. He waited on the sidewalk in front of the house until it became apparent that the resident had snuck out of a side door. The resident ran to his vehicle and, the process server claimed, drove at a high speed toward the employee. The employee did not report this particular incident, but said if he had not jumped out of the way he would have been hit by the car. In the second attempt, the employee stated that he hid in bushes approximately 50 yards from the driveway of the resident. When the resident came out to his car, the employee ran toward him and handed the papers over, advising him he had been served. The employee explained, that after he turned to walk away, the resident became very upset and at one point told his dog to, “Sic ‘em.” He then ran up behind the employee, flailed his arms in the air, and grabbed the back of the employee’s shirt. The employee turned and advised him to stop his assault. Sunday, Sept. 1 9:11 a.m. Officers responded to a report of assault at an island apartment complex. Upon arrival, the victim was found standing in the parking lot with a Steel Reserve beer can in his hand. Officers have

officers that the retrievers tried to bite her and her small dog so she kicked them in the head. The other woman who was the owner of the retrievers became upset at this and ran up to the dog walker. She called her an obscene name and began to swing at her. At that point, the two began hitting each other, “girl style.” No injuries were reported nor observed. Monday, Dec. 2 3:46 p.m. A Suquamish man reported a harassment incident on Bainbridge Island. The man told police that he had hired a Poulsbo man to do work on his boat in the last year. However, the man did not complete the job correctly and additional outside labor was required to fix the job the man had botched. In July, the boat owner began receiving emails from the employee that contained derogatory language, such as “douche” and “I fart in your general direction.” The employee demanded money for the work. The harassment intensified when on Nov. 25, the boat owner said he found “I kill you” written on a dirty window at his wife’s place of work, a downtown Bainbridge restaurant. The employee was seen at the restaurant that day, while the boat owner’s wife was at work. Saturday, Dec. 14 4:15 p.m. Police were dispatched to an island residence on a report that a wife had slapped her husband. When police arrived at the home, they found the man crying in a fetal position in the middle of the living room. The husband was at the house visiting their infant daughter. The woman told police that he had the baby in his arms when he started to walk toward the door. She believed he was going to leave with their daughter so she walked in front of the door to stop him. At this point, her father came into the room and told the husband to put the baby down and leave the house. According to the wife, it was after this that he put the baby down, fell into a fetal position on the floor and called 911. In contrast, the husband told officers that he had turned away from his wife when she came at him with a wild look. She then slapped him on the back of his right shoulder, to which he fell into a fetal position on the floor out of fear. There were no signs of redness or injury. The wife and father both believe this is an act for the husband to get something on record for the divorce proceedings.

had previous encounters with the man and concluded he was intoxicated. The man told officers that he had been allowing a friend to stay with him and was considering making the friend his roommate. However, the previous night, the friend entered the apartment without permission and pummeled him in the arms, head, crotch and right leg. Officers asked if he had any injuries. The man said there were none, but he hurt all over. He rejected the need for an aid car and told officers he was selfmedicating. The man lifted his beer can and winked. Then he told officers he needed someone to buy him more beer as he had only three cans left, and he couldn’t borrow from the last person who helped him out. Wednesday, Oct. 16 11 a.m. Police were called to Safeway on a report of a man in a motorized wheelchair who had launched a grocery cart onto the hood of a woman’s car. The owner of the car told officers she was putting her groceries inside her vehicle and placing her child in her car seat, when she apparently blocked the walkway with the grocery cart. While she was busy with her groceries and child, a man operating a motorized wheelchair came up the walkway and ran into the grocery cart. The cart was thrown onto the hood of the car and came to rest on the ground nearby. It left a mark and a small dent. The car owner turned and yelled at the man, but he appeared to be ignoring her and continued on his way. Officers tracked the man down at Island Health and Rehab. He told officers he had just been at the Safeway and bumped into the cart to move it out of the way. He apparently did not realize he had launched it. Police found that he was profoundly deaf and had to speak loudly to communicate with the man. They concluded that due to this, he would not have heard the cart crash into the car nor the woman yelling at him from a distance. Sunday, Nov. 17 4:38 p.m. Police were dispatched to a south island neighborhood on a report of a physical fight between two dog walkers. One of the women told officers that she was walking her dog when suddenly two golden retrievers came running at her, without a leash. The owners, an older couple believed to be in about their 60s, tried to call the dogs back but they did not comply. The woman then told

In Our Opinion

Looking back, looking ahead


ardon us while we pause to reflect the year that was. 2013 went by in a whirlwind. It seems like it was only a few weeks ago that islanders were celebrating Jay Inslee as he took the oath of office to become Washington state’s 23rd governor. Like most whirlwinds, 2013 kicked up a bit of dust. City hall swirled amid major departures and arrivals, controversy over the island’s rewritten Shoreline Master Program, continued concerns over the police department, the great debate over outsourcing the city’s water system, and a crowded ballot for the city council and fire department’s board of commissioners. But there was much to celebrate in our community, as well. The opening of the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, continued progress on Hilltop, and the completion of The Waypoint, the grassroots-built welcoming attraction to the island’s southern gateway, all top the list. As we enter a new year, it’s important for the Review to acknowledge and thank all of those responsible for helping the island’s hometown newspaper close out another successful year. Thanks are due to our many local merchants and advertisers. Their support is vital for this newspaper in its charge to chronicle the continuing history of Bainbridge Island, from the good to the bad and everything in between. Thanks, too, to the islanders who share their news, from engagements to weddings to birth announcements; the coaches and sports boosters who send in game scores; the members of our creative community who welcome us backstage or into the studio; the readers who take the time to call and offer a news tip; and those stout individuals who pen letters to the editor for our Opinion page. Our great gratitude goes to our subscribers, as well, who make up the heart of our readership. As we face the blank pages of 2014, here’s looking forward to a prosperous year filled with promise, hope and happiness.

Community made holiday season magical To the editor: Driving through downtown Bainbridge this time of year with the twinkling Stars-and-Scrolls holiday lights overhead, there’s some holiday magic that would be missed if not for the efforts of a community that wrapped itself around downtown shortly after Thanksgiving. We want to acknowledge the heroic efforts of several local groups and individuals who helped ensure that the holiday lights and traditions that mark the holiday season along Winslow Way happened this year: Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island, emergency decorating and lighting grant. This year the Downtown Association had hoped to brighten things up with a small investment and were able to do so thanks to an emergency grant of $4,000 from our local Bainbridge Island Rotary Club. The generous Rotary funds came at an especially meaningful time, with downtown reeling after Bob Cederwall’s unexpected passing only five days before the holiday lights were expected to go up. Rotary’s funds helped pay for a bucket truck, additional street banners, and resurrect the Stars-and-Scrolls for one more year. F.O.B. (Friends of Bob), Community Tree decorations. Another group of Bob and his wife, Denise’s very close friends gathered on the Sunday following Bob’s death and decked out the community tree on Madrone Lane. In the tradition of

the theatre, they rallied their “show must go on” spirit and purchased new decorations to make this year’s tree a spectacular tribute to Bob. Denise and her friends want to make this an annual event, commemorating Bob and his very special tie to downtown. Howie Paine and the lighting guys.

From transporting the community tree generously donated by Grandma’s Tree Farm, to driving Santa and his elves to light the tree, our local Madison Avenue firefighters were there for us. Santa. How we manage to get on his schedule every year this close to Christmas still amazes us, but we did! So, another year of keeping things merry and bright here in the heart of our community thanks to the efforts of many. And, from all of us downtown, warmest wishes for a magical holiday season! ANDREA MACKIN Executive Director Bainbridge Island Downtown Association

In response

Administrators could have asked questions To the editor: Did I get this right, Woodward Middle School is lucky enough to have church volunteers to help during lunch, and, the district, based on faulty assumptions, hired an inquisitor for $260 an hour, to investigate whether that faulty assumption was indeed faulty. Would it not have been easier, quicker and cheaper, had the district asked the Woodward teachers whether the church volunteers had proselytize, or sermonized, or spoken in tongues? The students would have learned a couple of new words and the district would have learned that what it knew already; no dogmas of Jesus, God, Allah, or Buddha were promoted. Or, and I know it sounds crazy, but could not have some administrators taken time out of their undoubtedly very busy schedules and do the questioning themselves? Woodward would have survived. I once experienced teaching without a superintendent’s and director of secondary education’s guidance for two weeks, it was tough, but the school survived. So, ultimately the district learned what it already knew, and not to trust rumors, at a cost of $14,382. Ah, well, we all know that good education does not come cheap, and, compared to the $300,000 bullying fine the district must pay, the $14,382 lawyer fee seems like a bargain for 54 hours of work.

year CONTINUED FROM A3 and Bob Scales — will be up for a vote in November, but Hytopoulos and Scales announced early they would not seek another term. “I never intended to run for a third term,” Scales said. “I accomplished all the things I wanted to do in the first two years.” Island’s K-9 officer retires: The island’s most adorable officer has decided to kick up his paws and leave his career of fighting crime on Bainbridge. Officer Rusty, the department’s K-9 officer, retired and was feted at a large turnout at city hall. Rusty spent an 8½-year career on Bainbridge Island sniffing for drugs and assisting officers on calls. Farmers finally become official on city-owned properties: It’s been a long time coming but now the farmers toiling in the city’s soil can take a sigh of relief. The roots they’ve put down are perennial. Officials with Friends of the Farms recently announced they’ve inked long-term leases with local farmers to cultivate city-owned lands. “The lease agreement was in limbo for years, making folks anxious all around. Now the farmers are subleased and all official,” said Wendy Tyner, executive director of Friends of the Farms. Accident at bridge sends two to hospital: Two islanders were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle following a two-car collision at Agate Pass that closed the highway to Bainbridge Island for more than four hours Monday. The accident occurred when a southbound Kia Sedona minivan struck a four-door Lexus sedan just before the Agate Pass Bridge. The Lexus spun across the road and landed on a guardrail. Report finds insubordination, refusal to work, lack of leadership in police ranks: An outside review of the Bainbridge Island Police Department said the department has been subject to a “regular state of turmoil” in recent years that has led to incidents of insubordination within the ranks of officers. A lack of leadership at the lieutenant level — and the changes made by the department’s last chief — were largely to blame, according to the report. City officials welcomed the results of the report, which was conducted under the Loaned Executive Management Assistance Program, or LEMAP, of the Washington Association of Sheriffs & Police Chiefs. “We’ve got areas that need improvement and those are clearly identified and we are going to work toward achieving the recommendations of the report,” said City Manager Doug Schulze. The expert analysis of the department followed a year of upheaval within the Bainbridge department. Harbor Commission floats proposal for new city dock: The Harbor Commission proposed a plan for a new and improved city dock to replace the aging facility at Waterfront Park. A rough drawing drafted by the commission shows a new wider pier with four additional fingers

The popular barbecue hotspot closed after six years downtown. extending east. The dock would be able to accommodate up to 35 slips for transient boats. “The needs of the island have changed, the demographics of the island have changed, and the needs of the boating community have changed,” said Harbor Commissioner Bob Wise. “The dock has served its useful life and doesn’t meet the needs of the community at all.” The new dock, as proposed, bears an estimated cost of $2 million. New park marks the gateway to the city: It took quite a few people to establish Bainbridge Island’s newest park, The Waypoint, and many of them were present as it was opened to the public. “Look what we did!” said Bruce Weiland to a crowd gathered in the rain to commemorate the official opening of The Waypoint. Weiland was involved with a steering committee composed of community members dedicated to placing a public walkway on the corner of Highway 305 and Winslow Way. On Friday morning, March 1, the people who made The Waypoint possible gathered with the island community to celebrate its success. “It’s not a park, it’s really a welcome place,” said island architect Johnpaul Jones, who designed the park. “When you travel and you come back off the ferry boat you can say ‘I’m home,’” he told the crowd. The same scissors used to cut the ribbon at the opening of the Agate Pass Bridge in 1950 were used to open The Waypoint. Outraged property owners march on city hall: A large crowd of people unhappy with the city’s draft changes to its Shoreline Master Program marched on city hall, carrying signs with slogans such as “Views Not Trees” and

“Lawyers have enough of your $$$.” “Nonconforming, not fair!” the marchers chanted as they paraded through downtown. The city has drawn much criticism and ire from many of the island’s waterfront homeowners. The group claims that the new designation of “nonconforming” for many waterfront homes will harm property values. Man arrested for spree of upskirt photos: A Bainbridge Island man was arrested for taking upskirt photos of young women. Angus Andrew Leger, 32, was arrested Wednesday, March 6 in front of the Rite Aid on High School Road. He was apprehended immediately after he allegedly shot a video with his cell phone under the skirt of a 16-year-old high school sophomore girl inside the store. Leger was charged with two counts of voyeurism. He was sentenced in May to four months in jail. Investigation finds human error in Walla Walla meltdown: Mistakes made by Washington State Ferries personnel were to blame for the failure of an electric drive motor that knocked the 188car ferry M/V Walla Walla out of service. WSF said a three-month safety investigation revealed that “human error” was the cause of the motor failure while the Walla Walla was undergoing routine annual maintenance at the Eagle Harbor Maintenance Facility on Bainbridge Island. Investigators said the failure was avoidable, and caused $3 million in damage to the Walla Walla. Outside utility will be more expensive: In a major twist to an ongoing saga, Bainbridge Island City Manager Doug Schulze said it would be more costly to outsource management of the city’s water utility than to operate it in-house.

Schulze was charged with looking into a proposal from the Kitsap Public Utility District to manage the city’s water utility. He returned to the city council and said that the cheaper option is to keep the water utility under the city’s purview. “It would cost the city about $100,000 more to contract with KPUD,” Schulze said. Classic clothing store closes: Lindsley’s clothing store has been a Winslow establishment for 22 years, filling a hole in the market for basic clothing needs. After May 18, Lindsley’s hung up its “Closed” sign for good. “My goal was to retire when I was 66,” said Judy Lindsley, who owns the store with her husband, Tom. “My birthday is May 16, and our last day of business is May 18,” she said. Hitchcock’s own wins national acclaim: Brendan McGill of Hitchcock restaurant on Winslow Way was named Food & Wine’s “Best New Chef” of 2013. “What’s nice is that it shows you are on their radar,” McGill said. Each year Food & Wine magazine holds a “people’s choice” poll to select the favored burgeoning chefs in their region.

APRIL City down to five finalists for chief: After months of searching, city officials said they had narrowed the list of potential police chiefs down to five. Debate continues over shoreline regulations: The Bainbridge Island City Council’s meeting on its Shoreline Master Program went past midnight and once again attracted a large number of waterfront property owners. Their message: The program is not fair, or at least, not understandable. Seasoned veteran named as

island’s next top cop: The city announced that Matthew Hamner — a longtime lawman from a big city department in Indianapolis, Ind. — will be Bainbridge Island’s next police chief. Bainbridge City Manager Doug Schulze said it was Hamner’s overall attitude that made him stand out from the field of five finalists. “I thought he came in with real positive energy, enthusiasm, a cando attitude,” Schulze said. “I felt he was going to be a good fit for leading the organization through a process of changes during the next three to five years,” he added. Local runners escape harm in bombing: A Bainbridge Island runner who raced in the Boston Marathon said the event will be forever changed by the bombing attack that left three people dead and more than 170 injured. Peter Vosshall, 42, of Bainbridge had finished competing in his fifth straight Boston Marathon and had already made it back to his hotel, Taj Boston, about a half mile away when the explosions went off. Vosshall said the explosions turned the city’s premier springtime event into a tragedy. “I’m just sick to my stomach about it,” he said. “This is such a celebration for the city of Boston,” Vosshall said. “There’s a half million people on the course, cheering on the runners. It’s supposed to be a great day. It turned into a devastating situation in an instant.” Councilwoman Lester won’t seek re-election: Debbi Lester announced Wednesday that she will not seek re-election for her Central Ward seat on the city council. Construction on new Rotary Park starts: Work began on a major makeover of Rotary Park. The project included changing the layout of the two ballfields at the park on Weaver Road, so balls from the upper ballfield won’t continue to rain down upon players and spectators at the lower field. Also in the current design: new batting cages, new scoreboards, improved trails, a larger tot lot and play area with a multi-platform play structure, rain gardens and revamped drainage system. Pleasant Beach Village to add pool, apartments: Lynwood’s largest housing and commercial development will soon be adding 20 new apartments clustered around a community pool. The hillside development that is slowly emerging as the newest neighborhood accenting Lynwood has seen the completion of its first phase, a boutique shopping center. But plans for phase two of Pleasant Beach Village, previously expected to be cottages and row houses, were changed. The most significant alterations to the site will be addition of a community pool and an apartment complex.

year CONTINUED FROM A9 previously the Grand Forest was split between east and west, each with its own set of trails, the new Hilltop Trail creates a vital corridor between the two expansive parks. Box at center of bomb scare came from Boston benefit: Bainbridge Island received a bit of a scare when a suspicious package with the message, “Pray for Boston” printed on its side was left at the Bainbridge Island Post Office. The box prompted a downtown shutdown Sunday, April 28 when a bomb squad, complete with a robot, was sent to investigate. However, the robot turned up empty-handed. The box had been tossed in the garbage outside the post office a few days earlier and had contained T-shirts with the same words printed on them — “Pray for Boston.” The shirts were distributed at a benefit fundraiser for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Turnover continues at Bainbridge city hall: Public Works Director Lance Newkirk, an employee for more than 15 years, announced his resignation Friday, April 26. Prior to Newkirk’s departure, City Manager Brenda Bauer was fired by the council, former police chief Jon Fehlman resigned and Bainbridge Police Commander Sue Shultz soon followed. Town & Country planning remodel of Winslow store: Town & Country Market officials submitted paperwork to the city of Bainbridge Island on May 2 to begin the permitting process of a remodel. The store announced its plan to bring a more modern look and feel to the building which has been a feature of downtown Winslow for 55 years. Islanders pack city hall for hearing on new shoreline rules: Donning badges stating “Send it on,” a large contingent of supporters of the updated but controversial Shoreline Master Program showed up for the May 8 public hearing. It was perhaps the largest show of support for the SMP in the wake of considerable opposition that has consumed past meetings on the plan. However, the hearing also attracted the passionate criticisms of shoreline homeowners and others who oppose the updated regulations. Five council hopefuls so far: Islanders Robert Bosserman, Arlene Buetow, John Green, Val Tollefson and Roger Townsend filed as candidates for the Bainbridge Island City Council by Friday, May 17. Two of the races were contested at the time of the filing: Buetow and Green sought former Councilwoman Debbi Lester’s Central Ward seat. And Townsend and Bosserman announced their interest in the South Ward position. Bainbridge firefighters rescue celebrity canine from cliff: Bainbridge firefighters rescued a pooch in a pinch when a local dog was found trapped on the side of an island bluff. Shaman was celebrating his 12th

birthday just the week before. Now retired, the Irish terrier had come off a career in the film industry, most notably as one of the six dogs that starred as Rex in the 2007 film, “Firehouse Dog.” In the shadow of his birthday, however, Shaman followed an otter too far. Crowded field in some races guarantees Primary Election: The races for the Bainbridge Island City Council and Fire Department were shaken up with entries, departures and a switcheroo mid-May. Wayne Roth filed for candidacy in the Central Ward race against Arlene Buetow, Thursday, May 16. Just a few days later, John Green announced he was dropping from the race. In the same breath, Dee McComb announced her candidacy for the South Ward seat and Dick Haugan announced his interest in the North Ward race. For the Bainbridge Island Fire Commission, Meghan McKnight announced a switch from the Position 5 race, and refiled as a candidate for the Position 2 seat. YongSuk Cho also filed for candidacy in the Position 2 race, joining candidate David H. Lynch. Island man allegedly burglarizes adult store: A Bainbridge Island man was arrested for allegedly breaking into a Silverdale adult store, not once, but twice, and making off with half of a sexily-clad mannequin and an armload of adult-themed products. Arthur Jay Brown, 24, broke into Lover’s Package two separate times Tuesday, May 28. On one of the break-ins, security cameras filmed Brown as he grabbed a mannequin next to the front door and rushed out of the business. The legs fell off the mannequin during the getaway. He later returned to the store wearing what appeared to be the wig from the stolen mannequin.

Gray, Mafalda Borges, Brandon Willerford, Samuel Bishoff and Ella Banyas. City council boils over on outsourcing water utility: The Bainbridge Island City Council voted unanimously to cease all negotiations to outsource the management of the city’s water system to the Kitsap Public Utility District. However the decision took a back seat at the June 5 city council meeting, when a heated argument over the aptitude of the council took precedence. “If you have such low satisfaction with (City Manager Doug Schulze) that you think you can usurp his job, then we have an incredible crisis in this city,” said Councilwoman Kirsten Hytopoulos. She directed her remarks toward Mayor Steve Bonkowski, who had bypassed the city manager and the contract to put forth his own work on the issue. Class of 2013 says farewell: Bainbridge High School celebrated the accomplishments of 333 departing seniors this year. “This community, and particularly this high school, is driven by passion,” said BHS senior Nate Greason

in a farewell speech. “Our time here has been significant because of the passionate actions of athletes, scholars, class clowns, actors, musicians, artists, introverts, extroverts and leaders among us. “I urge you to go forth with relentless, fiery passion,” he concluded. Islanders protest shopping center: Protesters opposed to a new shopping center lined the corner of Highway 305 and High School Road near its proposed location Tuesday, June 11. Wielding signs that read messages like “Say ‘No’ to sprawl” the group collected fist pumps, thumbs up and a steady stream of honks from passers-by. A real crowd pleaser: The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art opened its doors for the first time to a crowd of visitors at its ribboncutting ceremony, Friday, June 14. The museum replaced a 60-year-old parking lot with a 20,000-square-foot, LEED Gold building that displays fine art from local and regional artists free for the public to view. Shelter plans to move: The West Sound Wildlife Shelter announced plans of moving their shelter in response to Bloedel Reserve’s plans

JULY City and fire department begin planning for shared-use facility: The Bainbridge Island City Council gave the go-ahead to begin efforts to establish a facility that would house both the island’s fire and police departments under one roof. Bainbridge man found guilty of attempted rape: A Bainbridge Island man was found guilty of attempted rape, one year after his assault on a teenager who was walking home from an island grocery store. Jaime Sylva Arroyo, 27, was found guilty of second-degree rape. A baseball cap left at the scene of the crime contained DNA that matched samples taken from Sylva-Arroyo at the jail. Market has brush with controversy over Oral-B commercial: Oral-B’s presence at the Bainbridge Island Farmers Market Saturday, July 20 was met with local objection. “It’s our local market and corporations have plenty of avenues to sell their goods,” said Councilwoman Debbi Lester. The oral hygiene company visited the island while filming promotional material for a new motorized toothbrush. However, the conditions of the market’s lease agreement restricts the use of town square solely to local vendors.


JUNE More than a dozen Bainbridge Spartans rise to the top: Bainbridge High School boasted 13 valedictorians for the class of 2013. The scholars were Milan Chang, Kay Sterner, Elise Ran, Mike Chaffee, Brendan Redmond, Ford Eiman, Tyler Cox, Antonia Papajani, Emma

Hundreds of islanders jam the outside courtyard of the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art for its grand-opening celebration in June.

Consultant says police need more oversight, changes to union: An outside consultant hired by Bainbridge Island to review its police department concluded the department is plagued by poor first-line supervision, poor communication and split community support. Consultant Michael Pendelton also said there were long-standing unresolved allegations of police misconduct and retaliation that have yet to be resolved. His review advised the city’s new police chief should help establish a leadership development strategy and build stronger accountability. Council slashes water rates: The city council approved a 30 percent reduction on water rates in a 5-2 vote Aug. 14. By the same margin, the council also approved a resolution affirming that the city’s utilities are to be run for the benefit of their customers. Council members Kirsten Hytopoulos and Bob Scales voted against the motion. “I continue to be concerned that this reduction is premature,” Hytopoulos said. City hit with lawsuit over council members’ emails: Two “good government” advocates filed a lawsuit against the city of Bainbridge Island and council members David Ward, Steve Bonkowski and Debbi Lester.

City gives revised T&C plan its unanimous approval: Town & Country Market officials presented improved design plans for the Winslow Way location that will incorporate more exterior views to the store’s expansion. People passing in front of the store, will have a view directly inside through 8-foot-tall windows. The window sills have also been lowered to sit level with the Winslow Way sidewalk.

Woman rescued after jumping off Bainbridge ferry: An unidentified woman was rescued by the Coast Guard after she reportedly jumped off the ferry to Bainbridge Island as the vessel was nearing Eagle Harbor. Coast Guard Petty Officer

3rd Class Nate Littlejohn said the woman who went overboard from the ferry M/V Wenatchee was in “good condition” after having jumped from the ferry during the 1:15 p.m. sailing from Seattle. The Coast Guard sent several boats to assist in the searchand-rescue effort after being notified of the situation by the ferry crew, including a 25- and 45-foot Response Boat Crew as well as a Dolphin helicopter from Air Station Port Angeles. Council approves Waterfront Park design contract: The Bainbridge Island City Council unanimously approved a contract for the makeover design of Waterfront Park and the city dock.

Tripp starts political action committee: Email activist Gary Tripp has started a political action committee that will work to elect a slate of candidates to the Bainbridge Island City Council in the November election. The group, called Common Sense Bainbridge, registered as a political action committee with the Public Disclosure Commission, the


state agency that serves as a watchdog on campaign financing. Tripp, a well-known figure on Bainbridge Island, is the director of the Bainbridge Defense Fund, a property rights group that sends out a continuous stream of anti-government emails to a diverse and large email audience.

OCTOBER Raised tug removal is at a standstill in Eagle Harbor: The historic tugboat “Chickamauga,” which sank in its mooring early Oct. 2, at the Eagle Harbor Marina, was raised to the surface and the pollutants it spilled were cleaned up. The salvage company Global Diving & Salvage, under contract to the Coast Guard, did manage to raise the vessel to the surface and stabilize the boat. Due to legal issues surrounding the ownership of the boat, the Coast Guard contractor was unable to facilitate the moving of the derelict vessel.

NOVEMBER Bainbridge Island School District hit with $300K judgement: A Kitsap County Superior Court judge ordered the Bainbridge Island School District to pay $300,000 to a Bainbridge family after their 14-year-old special needs son was bul-

lied and sexually harassed by other teens at Bainbridge High School and school officials did little to stop the near-constant assaults. Thomas Vertetis, the attorney who filed a lawsuit against the school district on behalf of the student and his family, said the 14-year-old was tormented by his Bainbridge High schoolmates for a fourmonth period that started in the teen’s freshman year and continued until January 2007, despite the repeated attempts from his parents to

get school officials to take action against four other teenagers who were targeting their son. Vertetis said school officials at BHS “were repeatedly notified of the abuse and systematically failed to take any effort to stop it from occurring.” Tollefson, Townsend and Roth have runaway wins: The landslide wins by three candidates for the Bainbridge Island City Council were lopsided affairs turn to year | A12 Anytime, any place, the latest listings every day...

Rolling Bay Café burglarized in Christmas break-in BY CECILIA GARZA Bainbridge Island Review

A little more than $450, a safe and cash register were discovered stolen from Rolling Bay Café Christmas Day. Bainbridge Island police were dispatched to the burglary at 3:22 p.m. Dec. 25 after an employee, who was dropping by to pick something up, found the back door window shattered. According to police documents, officers found an iPad and several money bags on the floor of the café. The cash register was gone and a cabinet that had previously stored the safe was emptied. The café owner explained she had closed the shop the previous night at about 5:30 p.m. The missing safe, she said, had contained approxi-

mately $450 in cash and 20 unissued gift cards when she left. The register held an additional $10 in coins. An hour before closing, however, the owner told police a suspicious man came into the café, bought a small item and hung around the shop. She explained that the man lives in the area and is well-known to the police and court. Around closing time, she said she was the only business in the area still open. She was also the only one in the area other than the man when she left. The owner added that she normally turns the outside lights on, but due to the long holiday, she decided to save power by leaving them off. Police have documented a 12-by-10-by-4-inch taupe

fireproof safe and a black square cash drawer that was approximately 12-by-14 inches as stolen from the business. The owner explained the cash register was recently purchased, and she would look for the paperwork for more details on its description. A forensic analysis was done in an effort to identify a suspect. Officers attempted to lift prints from the iPad that was left behind and connects to the register to record transactions, but received negative results. They also attempted to lift prints from the door lock, but again received negative results. However, police were able to locate a footprint nearby that could be related to the crime.

DECEMBER Proposed retail center gets rejected, unanimous ‘no’ vote: The Bainbridge Island Planning Commission has unanimously rejected a proposed shopping center near High School Road and Highway 305. Commissioners said the new 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 who would visit the shopping center and those who live and work nearby. The development has been in the works for more than a year. BPA nominated for ‘Local Theatre of the Year’: Bainbridge Performing Arts was nominated for the 2013 regional award for Seattle “Local Theatre of the Year.” It was the production of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” earlier this year that seems to have put BPA on the national map. The production was nominated for “Best Musical (Local).” The show was also wellreceived locally, and has resulted in several more nominations for the company.

from one end of the island to the other, according to a Review analysis of precinct returns in the 2013 General Election. Roger Townsend, Val Tollefson and Wayne Roth rode an overwhelming wave of voter support to victory against Dee McComb, Richard “Dick” Haugan and Arlene Buetow in this year’s council elections. An analysis of precinct results show that McComb and Buetow each won only one of Bainbridge’s 22 precincts, while Haugan did not win the majority vote in any precinct on the island. Three new fire commissioners made the scene in election: Three of the four board positions sought in this election will now be held by candidates who have never held an elected office before. Long-time island resident and career firefighter YongSuk Cho successfully beat out his opponent for Position 2 on the board for the Bainbridge Island Fire Department, while Eileen A. McSherry was chosen for the Position 4 seat and Theresa “Teri” Dettmer won the Position 5 seat. Bainbridge Island’s 3M branch closes its doors: 3M, the science-based, innovation company, notified employees that it would be closing its Bainbridge Island branch by the end of the year. Located on Ericksen Avenue, 3M employed 31 people, not including contract workers, and provides services in digi-

raised concerns with the Bainbridge Island School Board in October about youth pastors who had volunteered at the middle school during lunch and District officials hired Tacoma attorney Shawn Ann Flood to investigate. In Flood’s report on the investigation, Flood said she did not find evidence that youth pastors who had volunteered were using their lunchroom time to promote religion or proselytize. Islanders file appeal against environmental review: A group of islanders opposed to a proposed commercial development on High School Road have appealed the city’s environmental review of the project. The city determined under the State Environmental Policy Act the proposed development posed no adverse environmental impacts if proper measures were taken to lessen potential problems from the development. Visconsi, an Ohio-based development company, has sought permits for more than a year to construct a commercial and retail complex directly across from Ace Hardware. State auditors find no financial discrepancies with city: Washington State Auditors informed city staff that there were no financial discrepancies in this year’s exit review. The auditing office reviewed the city’s accountability for public resources and financial statements. The next audit is scheduled for autumn 2014 and will cover the same areas: accountability for public resources, financial statements and federal programs.

Constance Sidles will give a presentation on the Montlake Fill at the Kitsap Audubon meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9 at the Poulsbo Library. Sidles began birding in the Montlake Fill in 1986 and has seen 186 different species of birds there. She has written five books and more than 500 articles. In her newest collection of 32 essays “Fill of Joy,” she describes in luminous prose the natural beauty and wonder she finds at Montlake Fill, an island of nature in a sea of urban development. This is not a book just about birds, however. It is also a guide that describes how to find joy in ordinary life by connecting with nature and to each other. By studying the interactions of the wild creatures who share our planet, Sidles distills the essence of what it means to be human — and happy. Info: Visit www.kitsap or call 360-692-8180.

s the war on terror continued through the first part of the new century, another battle arose in America. It came with returning veterans from wars overseas. Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, has become a well-known side effect of deployment over the past decade. The prevalence of cases caused the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to set up an entire website dedicated to the issue. It also inspired bestselling author Laurie Halse-Anderson to address the topic in her latest novel, “The

Impossible Knife of Memory.” The book will be released on Jan. 7, the same day that the author will visit South Kitsap High School as part of a West Sound Reads event. “When I visit high schools, I always talk about my own meandering educational path,” Halse-Anderson said. “I needed extra help to learn how to read in elementary school. By the time I made it to high school, the challenges facing my family diverted my attention. None of my teachers See Author, Page 2

expected me to amount to much.” She enjoys telling students about her journey through educational challenges, working through college, going to Georgetown University, and becoming an author. She will also discuss her latest novel. “The Impossible Knife of Memory” follows teenager Haley Kincaid and her father, Andy, an Iraq war veteran. The two decide to settle in Andy’s hometown, but the memories of war settle with them. Haley is torn between taking care of her father and being a teenager. While the issue of PTSD has become more well-known in recent time, it is a subject that the author has been aware of for many years. “My father is a World War II vet who, at age 18, was one of the soldiers who took care of the victims of Dachau, a Nazi concentration camp,” she said. “My father’s war experiences haunt him [to] this day. When I was a teen, Dad’s PTSD took over. He lost his job and we were afraid for years that he would take his own

life. “I know what it feels like to love a parent who is in emotional torment. I know that countless American teens are dealing with the same experience and I wanted to write about it for them.” Halse-Anderson is known for her previous young adult works such as “Speak” and “Wintergirls.” Past novels have addressed other sensitive topics that young adults face such as anorexia, rape and masculinity.

Her 1999 novel “Speak” was turned into a 2005 independent film starring Kristen Stewart. West Sound Reads is a collaboration between the Kitsap Regional Library and independent bookstores in the county, including Eagle Harbor Book Co. on Bainbridge Island and Liberty Bay Books in Poulsbo, which have sponsored HalseAnderson’s visit. The purpose of the effort is to bring renowned authors to Kitsap audiences.

Dream pop band Lemolo releases DVD of sold-out concert By RICHARD D. OXLEY Kitsap Week


merging from the Liberty Bay locale that bears its name, Lemolo has left a trail of success over the past couple of years. Their 2012 album “The Kaleidoscope” was among KEXP’s top 50 listener voted albums for 2012, and helped earn Lemolo recognition as Google Plays “Best Unsigned Artists of 2012.” “The Kaleidoscope” even rose to be a No. 1 selling record in 2012 at Seattle’s Sonic Boom Records. Most recently the band was voted “Best New Seattle Band” for 2013 by City Arts Magazine. Seattle audiences have certainly welcomed Lemolo into their musical fold. Capturing that relationship is Lemolo’s latest contribution, “A Beautiful Night: Lemolo Live at the Columbia City Theatre,” a DVD chronicling the duo’s two sold-out concerts in June 2012. In “A Beautiful Night,” Lemolo takes a journey through “The Kaleidoscope’s” evocative ambience. The duo sails through the depths of each song, displaying why the band’s lucid, graceful sound has so poignantly charted the aspirations of listeners. The DVD also provides an intimate perspective into the interplay between

members Meagan Grandall and Kendra Cox. “This DVD documents a very special weekend that launched our album ‘The Kaleidoscope,’ one of the biggest accomplishments in my musical career thus far,” Grandall said. “There is no better feeling than writing songs, recording an album, selfreleasing it and sharing it with the world,” she said. “And the fact that the Seattle music community showed the band so much love by helping us sell out two shows in a row made it that much more special.” The DVD is the product of Creative Differences, a Seattle-based production company. “I’m so grateful to the Creative Differences film team for preserving those memorable nights, and I hope that Lemolo fans can enjoy this project for many years to come,” Grandall said. The DVD also records a pivotal point in the band’s history as it struck the music scene under the helm of guitarist Grandall; and Cox, who principally handled drumming but also tackled the keys from time-to-time. Cox’s recent exit from the band means the DVD stands as a testament to Lemolo and the duo’s initial stride from the shores of Liberty Bay and onto the indie stage. “This film is a time

capsule, and it is a treat to look back at the peak of those formative five years I spent with Lemolo,” Cox said. “I am forever grateful that we have this piece of art that documented such a special part of my life. It’s the perfect way to honor our collaboration and close this chapter in

Special Seahawk Content Ever y Friday in Januar y

What makes Russell so good? Story by John Boyle, Herald Writer Photo by Jennifer Buchanan / The Herald Despite boasting an impressive college resume, Russell Wilson watched NFL teams pick 74 players ahead of him in the 2012 draft, including a punter. The snub was not based on Wilson’s skills or productivity, but on something beyond his control — his height. Yet where most teams saw 5-foot-10 5/8 as an insurmountable hurdle for an NFL quarterback, the Seahawks saw a player with enough going for him to overcome his lack of height. Here’s what has allowed Wilson to transcend his diminutive — by NFL quarterback standards, at least — stature:

HEAD Wilson’s work ethic is legendary. He will outwork, out-study and out-prepare just about any opponent, and has the intelligence not just to be prepared for a game, but also to know how to keep himself safe on the run, a key element for a mobile quarterback. EYES Plenty of quarterbacks can buy time with their legs; few are as adept at keeping their eyes downfield as they move, leading to huge plays when the coverage breaks down. Vision is also key for shorter quarterbacks who need to be able to find passing lanes through taller linemen.

HANDS Wilson may be undersized for a quarterback, but he actually had the biggest hands of any quarterback at last year’s NFL Scouting Combine. That’s imperative for ball security, especially for a quarterback who plays in a soggy climate. ARM Often times undersized quarterback means undersized arm, but that’s not the case with Wilson, who has a powertful arm, even by NFL standards. And, perhaps just as important, that arm is extremely accurate. HEART No matter how physically talented or intelligent Wilson is, he still had to overcome a lifetime of people telling him he was too small, that he should stick with baseball or move to safety or wide receiver. Wilson’s unwavering belief in his ability to be great is a big reason why he’s become one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks. LEGS Wilson’s weekly Houdini acts don’t just keep him out of harm’s way, they set up some of the Seahawks’ biggest plays. Wilson could thrive as a pocket passer, but his elusiveness and running ability only make Seattle’s offense that much more difficult to defend. FEET Wilson’s arm strength helps him make those impressive throws on the run, but so too does his ability to get his feet in proper position

even while evading pressure. Proper footwork within the pocket is essential for any quarterback, but especially for an undersized one who needs to be in the right place to find the right passing lanes.

So, you say you want a resolution?



aking healthy New Year’s resolutions have become as much of a tradition as abandoning them. Yet people flood health clubs every January with goals of losing weight, eating right, or simply to become healthier. In fact, 58.5 million Americans used a health club in 2012, according to data from the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association, a non-profit trade association for gyms and health clubs. Approximately 12 percent of club memberships come from a January surge of members, an IHRSA official said. But making the decision to get healthier is one step; actually doing it is another. Fitness trainer James Bowman knows a thing or two about how to take that next step. Before Bowman opened Strength Lab on Bainbridge Island, he was a personal trainer in Manhattan working with

Bowman has also been featured in magazines such as Shape and Vogue. At Strength Lab, Bowman incorporates a variety of approaches to fitness, including neurosomatic therapy, nutrition, training, group classes and more. When it comes to making goals, such as a New Year’s resolution, Bowman has a few tips to bear in mind.

certain number of pounds to lose, and by when. “Now we’re getting somewhere,” he said. “Now, how are you going to do that?” The “how” spans a few areas. “What people don’t realize is that if you want to lose weight and get healthier, it’s not just about exercise. It’s also about diet, lifestyle and sleep, and the proper medical attention,” Bowman said.

Be specific

“People say, ‘I’m going to lose weight,’ ” Bowman said. “I say, ‘Can we get a little more specific with that?’ A lot of resolutions are very general.” He added, “They would be much better off listing the steps they want to take to lose weight or improve their health. My advice is to be super-specific.” Instead of generically setting a goal of losing weight for example, Bowman said to focus on a

Bowman said that stressing your body by exercising constantly isn’t the best route to a healthier body. “We need to have one or two high-intensity days in the week,” he said. “But you do not need to be blasting your body with high-intensity exercises all week long.” Organize low-intensity days around the high intensity days, Bowman said. And if you’re not used to high-intensity exercises, work up to it. Don’t jump right into high intensity routines.

The diet

Bowman said there are a couple diet tips people can consider. Beyond that, he said it is best to “personalize it.” The first tip is to eat many small meals throughout the day, instead of big meals. “If you are trying to improve your body composition, eat six meals a day,” Bowman said. “Your meals will shrink, shrink and shrink.” This applies to eating out, Bowman said. Many restaurant meals come in large portions. See Resolutions, Page 9

Plan for the big picture

A life coach gives advice on how to stick to a New Year’s resolution


hile running, jumping and pumping iron are what many consider when making a New Year’s resolution, the physical is only one part of the plan. Having a plan is what Joanne Victoria, a life coach with Silverdalebased Gemma & Bixley, says is a key component in any New Year’s resolution. “People who are anxious right out of the gate, looking to do something really quick and fast, I tell them to make a small plan,” she said. “Get it down into digestible bites. Nothing is going to happen over night. The only thing that can happen over night is to calm down and create a plan.” Included within that plan, Victoria said, should be multiple aspects of a person’s life, not just one corner. “You can’t section off one part of your life and ignore the rest,” Victoria said. Victoria noted that

a good plan is one that observes “the big picture.” “You have your physical health, your personal life, your business health and your family. All that has to fit in with the program that you create for yourself,” she said. Victoria suggests, for example, that relationships with friends and family don’t fall away in the pursuit of a goal. “I don’t think there should be sacrifice,” Victoria added. “You have to stand back and look at the big picture.” Part of this big picture includes bringing family and friends on board with your plan — whether it’s eating better, losing weight, or getting healthy in general. “If you have one person supporting you, that is better than no person supporting you,” Victoria said. Having a “mini team” for support is beneficial for achieving goals, she said. Another tip Victoria

Joanne Victoria ... ‘Take it one day at a time and every day will have a success.’

gives for staying on track is keeping a journal. “Once you make the decision, it’s important to chronicle the decision making process toward achieving your goal,” she said. “It’s important because what happens is that some people will start this at the beginning of the year, and it will peter out and they feel that they have accomplished nothing. The journal will say that they did this, this and this.” Victoria notes that she personally doesn’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. “I believe in daily resolutions,” she said.

“Your average restaurant will give you two servings,” he said, noting he will ask for a to-go box with his meal. “Before I take bite one, I cut my meal in half,” he said. Another way to work within this habit is to stretch out big meals, such as dinner. “Make dinner last for three hours,” Bowman said. This will help fend off temptations to eat late at night, or simply out of boredom. The second diet tip is to make sure to eat all three macronutrients: fats, protein and carbohydrates. While individuals may have specific dietary needs or choices, these three nutrients are necessary. “Complex carbohydrates,” Bowman said. “That’s a fancy way of saying fruits and vegetables.” Bowman also said to make protein lean, such as lean meats. And unsaturated fats are the best fats. Not all fats are created equal. “Trans fat, of course, is just pure poison,” Bowman said. “My recommended daily value of trans fat is zero. Avoid it like the plague.”


“(Sleep) is a really important part of this that

people forget,” Bowman said. “They want to get healthy and they want to lose weight, but they don’t sleep enough. When is your body going to repair itself?” Rest is important in tackling stress, which can also contribute to weight gain. Bowman recommends balancing life with adequate rest. Many people can work too much, he said, with long hours, working through lunches and through weekends. But rest and relaxation is needed for the body to take on the next workout. In the end, it’s all about a balanced lifestyle, Bowman said. “If you are not where you want to be with your health, then I got to say there is something with your lifestyle as well,” Bowman said. More information about Bowman and Strength Lab can be found at www.

Bowman’s tips

n Be specific on how you will achieve your fitness goal. n Have one or two high intensity workouts surrounded by low intensity exercises each week. n Eat six small meals a day and include all three macronutrients: fats, lean protein, and complex carbohydrates. n Don’t neglect rest and relaxation.

In other words, keep it simple and manageable. “You have to break it down,” she said. “That’s how it will work the best. Take it one day at a time and every day will have a success.” More information about Victoria, life coaching, and Gemma & Bixley can be found at www.gemmabixley. com.

Victoria’s tips

n Make a plan, incorporate the “big picture.” n Bring your friends and family into your goal; build a “mini team.” n Keep a journal, chronicle the process.
