Here’s who to watch in 2014 Who were the newsmakers in 2013? What were their accomplishments, good deeds and actions? Will they vanish from our pages in 2014, or will they take on new roles and lead us to new heights? Will they make Kitsap County a better place to be? Those are some of the questions we asked the newsmakers as we looked at what may be ahead in 2014.

Josh Brown, Kitsap County Commissioner One of the more prominent names in Kitsap County in 2013 was County Commissioner Josh Brown. Brown announced in October that he would leave his commission seat at the end of 2013 to become the executive director for the Puget Sound Regional Council, working for the economic development well-being of the entire Puget Sound region. Known for being the first central Kitsap commissioner to be re-elected since 1990, he began his second term at the beginning of 2010. When he made his decision to leave, he said it was hard for him to leave his position as District 3 commissioner. But just knowing that the county is operating at a better level than when he took office made it a bit easier. “You’d be hard pressed to find a time in recent history when the county was stronger,” Brown said, as he prepares to leave his job Dec. 31. “We’re stronger today than eight years ago when I took office. The county as a whole and the organization has weathered the great recession and we have a more stable economic environment than even before

that.” Brown, who has served on the commission for eight years, plans to move to Seattle soon and will not maintain a residence in Kitsap County. In reviewing his time on the commission, Brown said one of the accomplishments he was most proud of were the changes to the department of community development. “It was broken when I took office,” he said. “There had been eight directors in nine years. The day after I was elected, I worked with the other two commissioners and began interviewing (candidates for) directors.” Brown said Larry Keeton, the current director of community development, who was the hire then “was the best hire ever.” Brown was one of three local leaders who went to the Paris Air Show in June to promote Kitsap County and the region to the aerospace industry. Following that trip, he had this to say: “It’s staggering the competition that’s out there,” Brown said. “For too long we’ve taken for granted our aerospace (companies) here in the Pacific Northwest. Our focus now has to be on what we can do to keep aerospace (work) in Washington.” In 2014, Brown hopes to accomplish much with the PSRC. He wants to work on keeping aerospace work in the Puget Sound region and enhancing the region’s employment base. He will remain connected to Kitsap County, where he grew up, because he has family here and because “some of my bosses are here.” Elected officials from various Kitsap-based governments and businesses are members and serve on the board of the PSRC.

Scott Bosch, CEO Harrison Medical Center This upcoming will be a busy one for Harrison Medical Center, according to CEO Scott Bosch.

In his year-end message to employees posted on the hospital’s website, Bosch summed up 2013 as a year of growth and change. Affiliation with the Franciscan Health System became official in late 2013 and will lead to continuing adaptation in 2014 including a new patient record-keeping system that will allow doctors to better share information. The opening of the Orthopaedic Center was long-awaited plus for Harrison in 2013 and as 2014 gets underway, the center will see more and more joint and spine surgeries, hospital officials have said. In 2013, Harrison earned national recognition on multiple fronts, Bosch said, including designation by the Joint Commission for Hospital Oversight as a Top Performer for quality measures related to heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care. Other awards included Stroke Silver Quality Achievement Award and the Beacon Award for Excellence for ICU services. Continuing quality service to patients as the health care system changes and adapts to “Obama Care” is the focus for Harrison in 2014, he said.

Leslie Daugs, Bremerton City Councilwoman Local Democrats have tapped Bremerton City Councilwowan Leslie Daugs as their first choice to replace Josh Brown on the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners. “I think I was chosen because the Democrats know I have experience working with local governments,” she said. “And they know I have what it takes to get the job done and hold on to the job in the next election cycle.” Daugs has been on the Bremerton City Council for two years. She was just recently re-elected to SEE NEWSMAKERS, A6

Madrona Estates Apartments Manager Rick Lott stands in front of the burnt out remains of his old second-floor apartment and the unit directly below his in which Dora M. Crockett, 78, died.


For Rick Lott, last Tuesday started out like just about any other day for him. As manager of the Madrona Estate Apartments on Auto Center Way, he was up and making a list of things that he needed to get done before he headed off to his girlfriend’s house in Port Orchard for Christmas Eve festivities. And then everything changed. Lott heard the fire alarms going off outside his apartment. Still in his slippers, he ran outside to see what was happening. “I saw a lot of smoke,” Lott said. “But I didn’t see fire. I thought it was something I could put out myself. I was confident I could, so I got the fire extinguisher and went down a floor below me where the smoke was.” Soon, he knew it was more than he could handle by himself. “The office manager had already called 9-1-1,” Lott said. “But I had my cell and I called her and told her it was getting big and get the fire department here.”

He immediately began knocking on doors and windows and screaming “fire.” “I went to the two apartments where I knew there were single moms with kids,” he said. “I had to make sure the kids got out OK” Then he went to the apartment below him, where he had seen so much smoke. “I tried to bust down the door,” he said. “But I couldn’t. It was just too hot.” Then the realization came. His apartment was right above where it seemed the fire had started. And the fire was out of control. “By then, I couldn’t get back to my place to try to get anything out,” he said. “I just tried to gather all the residents and get them away from the building.” The morning fire took the life of Dora M. Crockett, 78, the woman who lived below Lott. There is no official cause yet, according to the Bremerton Fire Department, and the fire is still under investigation. The Kitsap County Coroner’s office said SEE FIRE VICTIMS, A6

Adele P. Bonwell Adele P. (DeSantis) Bonwell, 79, of Bremerton, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, Dec. 9, 2013. Adele was born Oct. 21, 1934, in Ware, Mass., to Frank and Philomena (Giammarco) DeSantis, and graduated from Ware High School in 1952. Adele was in training to become a licensed practical nurse and was employed at the Belchertown (Mass.) State School when she found the love of her life, Joseph Bonwell and married him on Nov. 24, 1955. Adele and Joseph had been married for 58 years at the time of her death. Adele and Joseph moved to Washington State in January 1956, driving across the country from Massachusetts to Washington and, at one time, Adele had to work the windshield wipers on the 1951 Plymouth during a snow storm! Adele was a loving wife, mother and grandmother to her husband, two daughters, and granddaughter. Adele

had numerous nieces, nephews, friends and extended family and was admired and an inspiration to those who knew her; she is greatly missed. Adele was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers and sister: Anthony, Mario, Patrick, Horace and Helen (DeSantis) Beaton all who resided in Massachusetts. Survivors include her husband, daughters Karen Bonwell-Nafie (John), Jo-Marie Bonwell and granddaughter Kristen Nafie. At her request, there will be no services. The family wishes to thank the Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and chaplain who so diligently worked with us and assisted us during our time of need.

Friday, January 3, 2014

An opportunity awaits Residents of Central Kitsap have a great opportunity in front of them in 2014. They can be part of carving the future of the Central Kitsap Community Campus located in the main hub of Silverdale. Plans are underway to build the West Sound Performing Arts Center on the campus which is located between Silverdale Way and Randall Way. The campus is now home to the Haselwood Branch of the YMCA. The group backing West Sound Performing Arts Center (WSPAC) has signed a letter of intent with Kitsap County that paves the way for the performing arts center to be designed, built and operated by them. They are currently in a fund-raising phase and looking for any grant or foundation money that will help get the center built. The center is needed because there is no auditorium large enough for performances by traveling shows that would like to come to Kitsap County, but won’t until there is a place for them to perform. Additionally, the center is needed because several of the high schools in Central Kitsap don’t have facilities for their student performances either. Coupled with those things, the Silverdale Community Center, which is where C-Stock now practices and performs, is old and outdated. When the funds are there to build the new performing arts center, the Silverdale Community Center will be torn down. Central Kitsap residents, and those throughout Kitsap County, need to get behind the work of WSPAC and get a new performing arts center built. Residents also need to take part in another possible addition to the community campus. Volunteers are hosting informational meetings to discuss a new Silverdale Library. The discussions will include whether there is interest in a new library, how it will be paid for, and where it should be built. One possible scenario is to build the library on the community campus, alongside the performing arts center and the YMCA. It’s a good place for the library to be located, if there is the public support to build one. This is the time to get informed and be a part of that decision. Whether or not Silverdale ever opts to become a city in and of itself, Silverdale needs to have facilities for its residents. Providing a new performing arts center and a larger library are among them. Get involved and support these additions to the life of this community.

The problem solvers in action I am a problem solver. Actually, that is a lot of what I do in my real world private sector job as an operations coordinator. What is an operations coordinator, you ask? Basically it is just a fancy title for my ability to turn common sense and available resources into both short and long term solutions to problems within the departments of the company I work for. Problem solvers are often missunderstood. We tend to cut right to the chase. We don’t mince words and most of us don’t like to waste time pandering to the fragile egos of those who prefer the role of judgmental spectator instead of solid contributor. People tend to label problem solvers as aggressive, abrupt or even rude at times because we keep our focus on moving the ball towards the solution instead of worrying about our own popularity or the acknowledgment or appreciation of our efforts. Those looking to control the system to their own advantages do in fact view unknown problem solvers as a threat to their personal fiefdom and push back accordingly. Because of my own desire to be a part of the solution, I tend to gravitate toward others within our community who are also problem solvers. A wonderful example of community problem solvers working together happened this past week. A terrible fire occurred on Christmas Eve

Vouchers for hotel rooms for those families and individuals who could not return to their units were distributed. But serving all of the impacted residents had only just begun. Instead of sitting around waiting to be told how or when individual community citizens could render assistance, the problem solvers went to work. The immediate needs of

blankets, toiletries, flashlights and prepared food that could be distributed to fire victims still operating without power came first. Next on the list was solving the problem of food replacement. No power meant food sitting in refrigerators and freezers would need to be replaced. Word spread fast on community Facebook pages and soon donations of pre-paid grocery cards began pouring in. Having the pre-paid cards would allow residents to replace the food they lost when the power was restored or they moved their household to a new location. This past Friday, I stopped on my way into work and picked up three of the cards to be donated, one from each member of my family. I would like to personally thank everyone involved. In addition to the Port Orchard Goodwill, grateful assistance was received from the Bremerton St. Vincent DePaul, Rejuv Spa in Manette and Rockit Roost in downtown Bremerton. Robert and Jodi Parker and Jane Rebelowski are my fellow community problem solvers who stepped up, involved themselves with or coordinated nearly all of the donations or services provided and ensured that it all made its way to the fire victims in the most need. They listened to what those needs were and they followed up with the solutions. Way to go, guys!

Government regulation: we need a fresh start BY DON C. BRUNELL PRESIDENT, ASSOCIATION OF WASHINGTON BUSINESS


The New Year is traditionally a time for reflection and renewal. A shiny new year lies ahead, full of promise. The New Year is a time when people pledge to change their lives: lose weight, stop smoking, be a better parent, work harder, work less. Regardless of your situation, the New Year holds the opportunity for a fresh start. Our nation needs a fresh start. We are now entering the fifth year of the economic “recovery,” the slowest on record since the Great Depression. While there have been sporadic fits and starts of improved numbers, economic growth and job creation remain painfully slow. When the recession began in 2008, an unemployed person was jobless for an average of 16 weeks. Today, the average is nine months, with many people out of

work for two years or more. While the official unemployment rate has dropped to 7 percent, the “real” rate, including the millions who have given up looking for work, is double that. U.S. economic policy needs a fresh start in 2014. It’s time for a change. Another change? We need to stop the avalanche of regulations that are slowing our recovery. The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) reports that government agencies issued more than 3,300 new regulations in 2013 with compliance costs of $1.8 trillion per year. Reasonable regulations are necessary of course, but there are already more than one million federal regulations on the books. And the pace of new regulation is relentless — one every two hours and nine minutes, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, for the last 20 years. In testimony before C ongress, George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley warned that unelected regulators are becoming a powerful “fourth branch” of government. We need to take a fresh look at overregulation in

2014. Perhaps the most high-profile regulation slowing our recovery is the Affordable Care Act “Obamacare” rushed through Congress in

In an attempt to avert a voter backlash, President Obama has delayed the employer mandate, added exemptions, extended deadlines, changed eligibil-

ity rules — all without Congressional approval. Multiple lawsuits challenging the ACA are working their way through the courts. Both political parties agree: it’s a mess. This confusion and uncertainty must not continue for another year. Health insurance reform needs a fresh start in 2014. Washington state would also benefit from a New Year’s re-evaluation. Gov. Inslee is moving forward with Californialike climate change regulations, but because Washington is much cleaner than California, we don’t need — nor would we see much benefit from — such disruptive and costly regulations. At the same time, the Department of Ecology is pursuing new water quality regulations for public and private water treatment facilities that DOE officials admit are

literally impossible to meet — and may be for decades to come. A recent study projects this impossible standard could cost ratepayers and employers billions of dollars with no hope of compliance and little environmental benefit to show for it. The City of Bellingham says the regulation could push a family’s monthly sewer bill from $35 to $200 or more. As we approach the New Year, it’s time for our elected officials and state regulators to reevaluate the path they’re on. Individuals, families, employers, politicians and policymakers — we all need a fresh start in 2014. About the Author: Don Brunell is the president of the Association of Washington Business.

another two-year term in November. Daugs also said her longterm relationship with the Kitsap County Democratic Party helped her have the advantage. “I’ve been active with the local Democrats for more than 10 years,” she said. “They know me and I have a relationship with the party.” The party now hands the remaining two commissioners a list of their three top choices. Besides Daugs, who is the top choice, Irene Bowling, a local businesswoman and piano teacher, came in second, and Linda Streissguth, a manager with Puget Sound Energy, was third. In all, seven Democrats


Crockett died of asphyxia due to inhalation of toxic combustible materials. The manner of death is listed as accidental. “She was a lovely woman,” said Lott. “I knew her fairly well. She didn’t have family around here, but she has daughters. She was very nice and will be deeply missed.” Following the fire, at least 48 residents had to be cared for elsewhere. By Sunday, all but five or six had been able to return to their apartments. Those whose units were so severely damaged that they will not be able to return are being helped by the Red Cross and are being relocated to other apartments.

sought the position. The others were former Bremerton Mayor Cary Bozeman, Richard Huddy, former executive director of the CAPRI heart and Lung Institute, Silverdale attorney Rob MacDermid, and Silverdale water commissioner John Poppe. Central area commissioner Josh Brown left the position Dec. 31 to become the executive director for the Puget Sound Regional Council. The remaining commissioners, Rob Gelder and Charlotte Garrido, will now make the decision who will replace Brown. They will interview Daugs, Bowling and Streissguth and then name Brown’s replacement in January. Daugs said if the historical pattern regarding replacements to elected seats repeats itself, commisAs for those who returned, they, too, lost things. “For many of them, there was no electricity, even when they came back home,” said community volunteer Robert Parker. Parker and another volunteer Jane Rebelowski went into action as soon as they heard about the fire. Through the Volunteer Bremerton and the Manette Neighborhood Facebook pages, they put out the call for help. “People really responded,” said Parker. “What we discovered was that the Red Cross was helping get people into motels. But when it was time for those who could to come home, they were without a lot.” He said the volunteers sought out donations from individuals and from area

sioners will name her as the replacement. “The top one going in is usually who gets the job,” she said. Daugs said one of her first goals will be to see the Central Kitsap Community Campus be developed. The campus, between Silverdale Way and Randall Way, is the home to the YMCA and is being considered as the site for a new library and performing arts center. If Gelder and Garrido can’t agree on the person to replace Brown, Gov. Jay Inslee will make the appointment.

Ed Wolfe, Bremerton lawyer Ed Wolfe, a Bremerton lawyer and former U.S. State Department official, announced Dec. 3 he will file to run for the County Goodwill stores — things like towels, sleeping bags, and some clothing — anything that would help those who were displaced and those who were returning to their apartments. “These are some of our city’s poorest,” Parker said. “And because the electricity was out, they lost all the food they had in their refrigerators and freezers.” Gift cards to area grocery stores were donated and are still needed. Some folks had to replace clothing and other items that were too smoky to keep. “During the first days back, some apartments didn’t have their electricity on yet, so they couldn’t cook,” said Parker. “We went to WinCo and brought back warm roasted chickens.” Electricity has now been restored to the units that

Commission from Central Kitsap in 2014. The filing period isn’t until May. The primary will be Aug. 5, and the general election will be Nov. 4. After the county commission appoints a Democrat to replace Josh Brown, the appointee will have eight months in office before the primary. In his campaign announcement, Wolfe said he looks forward to “sharing more about my ideas that draw on my business, government, and legal experiences and that support a bipartisan approach to our county government. It’s time to put my experience serving our country, local families and taxpayers to work in Kitsap County.” He added, “I’ve spent years living and working in our community, and believe

now is the right time to take this next step to serve Kitsap County as commissioner.” Wolfe, 66, has a heavy resume. He received his B.A. in 1969 from West Virginia University and his J.D. in 1977 from George Mason University School of Law. He served in the U.S. Army from 1969-71.From 1972-74, he was field manager at Coca Cola USA in Atlanta, Ga. He was senior legislative assistant to Rep. G. William Whitehurst, R-Va., 1976-78; and an associate in the firm of Steele and Utz in Washington, D.C., 1978-1980. He served as policy and program consultant for the National Marine Fisheries Service in 1981, and was legislative representative to the United States Tuna Foundation in 1981-82.

In the U.S. Department of State, he was special adviser for international affairs in the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs from 1982-83, and in 1983 was appointed deputy assistant secretary of state for Oceans and Fisheries Affairs. After 1984, he held the rank of ambassador when representing the United States at international conferences and meetings on fish and wildlife matters. He founded Wolfe Law Offices in 1997, specializing in personal injury, employment discrimination, probate and estate planning, real estate and business disputes, and wrongful death. He served as president of the Kitsap County

can be occupied. Parker has been thoroughly impressed with all the help from volunteers. “As things pop up, we try to meet the need,” he said. “Bremerton residents have been very giving. Slowly, normal is coming back for most of them. But there are some units that will have to be rebuilt. They’re a charcoal mess.” What’s going to help the most now, he said, is help replacing food for the residents who are back in their apartments. Boxes of non-perishable food or gift cards to WinCo and other grocery stores can be donated through Rejuv Spa at 1107 Scott Ave., Ste. B, Bremerton. Or call Parker at 360-710-0889. Meanwhile, Lott is looking to find somewhere closer to the apartments to stay

until an empty unit can be readied for him. “I need to be on-site as soon as possible,” said Lott. “Hopefully by next week I can be living back at the place.” He’s also overwhelmed at the help that’s been given. “It’s such a tragedy,” he said. “But the response has been so great. It’s restored my faith in mankind. The community has really pulled together.” Lott said before the fire everyone knew each other, but “now we really know each other. We’ve been through so much together. We’re all family now.” It was several days after the fire that Lott was able to have his Christmas celebration with his girlfriend and her family, including a granddaughter who was born Dec. 18.

“I’ve basically been working 24 hours a day since the fire happened,” he said. “Maybe sleeping at the Midway Hotel a couple of hours a night…” Right after the fire he was allowed into his place to get the Christmas gifts that survived. And Saturday, he went back in his apartment to see what else may have made it. “A couple of houseplants survived, and I got one computer that’s OK,” he said. “I saw my Christmas tree, and it’s just a trunk, all the needles burnt.” It’s been so difficult to lose a friend, all of his belongings and see all his tenants lose so much, Lott said, especially at Christmas. “It’s been trying,” he said. “But we’ve stuck together. We’ve gotten great support and we are gonna make it.”

for Hitachi America Ltd., in California. Rothlin is excited about overseeing an airport and marinas, which was not part of his job in Chehalis. “I know I’ll draw on the knowledge of the directors here who are familiar with the Bremerton airport and the marinas here,” he said. “But in my work with the State Ports Association, I have dealt with matters involving both airports and marinas and feel ready to oversee those things.” He hopes to continue the successes of 2013 including a higher rate of occupancy at the Bremerton Marina and the Olympic Industrial Park which was signed leases in the past month with two new tenants.

taken over as chief executive officer for the Port of Bremerton, replacing Tim Thomson who retired Dec. 31. Rothlin came from Chehalis where he was executive director of the Port of Chehalis. Rothlin was among 30 applicants for the job and has been executive director of the Port of Chehalis since 2002. He also serves as the chair of the economic development committee of the Washington State Ports Association. Prior to coming to the Port of Chehalis, he was the CEO of Premiere Business Services, a business management consulting firm. From 1987 to 1994 he was the financial controller for National Semiconductor Corporation. He began his career in the Silicon Valley as a credit analyst

Central Kitsap School District Superintendent Greg Lynch announced in March he would be leaving the district to pursue a job at the Educational Service District 114. Lynch was replaced by Hazel Bauman, who started her work July. Lynch worked for the district for nearly a decade before moving on. Bauman previously had worked in the Coeur d’Alene district in Idaho, and had spent nearly 40 years in the education field. The experienced educator was hired for $160,000 for a one-year interim position. In November it was decided that Bauman’s contract would be extended for one year longer. After that, the educator plans to retire. Her work in 2014 will include helping to get a levy passed in the district, moving the 9th graders into

the high schools in the fall, and working to improve the curriculum in the district. Providing more professional development for teachers is also on the list. The superintendent was born in Manchester, England, and moved to Canada in 1966 where she attended high school in Toronto. She began her career in education at age 17 after getting a two-year degree. “It was the dark ages,” she said. “Back then, in Canada, you could teach with a two-year college degree.” In 1974 she moved to Coeur d’Alene where she got her bachelor’s degree from Eastern Washington State College (now university) in Cheney. She taught blind and deaf children in a residential school setting and then began teaching special education classes for the Coeur d’Alene School District in 1979. She’d been going to school part time and received her master’s degree in education from Eastern Washington. She worked as a consulting teacher and spent time in a number of classrooms until 1984 when, after having two children, she decided to stay home and work part time for the University of Idaho at its Coeur d’Alene campus. She taught undergraduate students and was an advisor and supervised student teachers. After her youngest was in school, Bauman went back to teaching full time in 1989 as the Coeur d’Alene’s interim curriculum specialist and stayed until she came

Afton, a student at Klahowya Intermediate School in Silverdale was featured in the Central Kitsap Reporter in June.

She made the 2013 final ballot for the Grammy’s in three categories: Best Country Album for “Stay with Me,” Best Country Solo Performance, “Forever with You,” and Best Country Song for “Forever with You.” She also completed two music videos in 2013, one which was filmed at the Admiral Theater in Bremerton. Afton just got back from LA where she recorded some radio promotion stuff and also recorded video footage for her new music video for “Flawless”. Afton is currently booking high school shows to benefit local nonprofits. She has a show to benefit Coffee Oasis Benefit Jan. 17 at 8 p.m. at Bremerton High School.

In 2014, she plans to continue that activism. “I am always concerned about maintaining the character and quality of Old Town Silverdale and want to make sure that the business that plan to open respect the sense of community that is reflective to the area,” Merkel said. “I love the park and how it is such a recepSEE NEWSMAKERS, A8

The Bremerton native stepped into the Bremerton School District superintendent position after the former superintendent announced his departure. With less than a month prior to school starting, Lester “Flip” Herndon announced he would be leaving for a job with Seattle Public Schools starting Sept. 2. Herndon’s hope of leaving the district was no secret as he had applied for a few other superintendent positions over the last few years.The school board hosted a community forum to seek public comment for the superintendent position prior to the hiring for the position. AaronLeavell, who was the district’s assistant superintendent at the time of the departure seemed to be the favored candidate for the spot. Leavell had returned to the district as Assistant Superintendent after a stint as North Kitsap School District’s Director of Secondary Education. The 2013-2014 top priorities for Leavell included directing focus on the levy, new Common Core State Standards, and the new teacher evaluations that were put into place. “I’m just thrilled to be their superintendent,” Leavell said after being told he got the position. Leavell’s contract is for three years,

on radio stations in Ohio, Texas, Michigan, and New York and she hopes to get more radio coverage in 2014, especially in Washington. According to her mother, Carrie, Afton hopes to play more shows with her band. Band members are Kim Enloe, keyboards, Jonathan Enloe, drums, Brett Angelo, guitar, and Steve Warren, bass. Gary Steelman is back up bass player. She also plans to return to Nashville in spring 2014 for a showcase that her producer (The Record Shop) would host. If time allows she may record a couple more songs when in Nashville.

tive area for smaller children and family use.” She added that the Silverdale Port is essential in supporting the quality of Old Town and thinks its board has done an admiral job. “Another issue that I am concerned about is the sign ordinance that could impact the streets of Silverdale,” she said. “We do not need to have flashing signs directing you some place or giving you a thought for the day as you drive down Silverdale Way – It is a dangerous enough drive now can you imagine what it would be if you had more distractions. I wish the county would actually talk to the citizens before they devise a proposed policy not afterwards. Get input before developing a plan.” There are always county-wide issues that will be coming up, she said, but the most important concern is keeping the quality of life that is here. “Balancing out growth with environmental concerns,” she said. “We need to be vigilant of our resources, environment and appreciate the beauty of the area. It can easily be taken away or destroyed. If it wasn’t for our foresight – I am sure that Dyes inlet would look like a porcupine with a million docks sticking out into the sound.” She also said she hopes people will not get discouraged at the construction of a new Clear Creek Bridge. “It will do a lot to facilitate traffic and will augment the wonderful resource we have in the Clear Creek Trail,” Merkel said.


Mick Hersey, historic memorial preservationist Mick Hersey is wellknown in the area for his dedication to refurbishing and cleaning up memorial sites throughout the county. Since 2010, Hersey led groups in training how to properly clean memorials. When he started in on restoration, he said he didn’t “realize there were so many memorials and museums in our county.” Apparently neither did Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent. When he came to her and requested to start research, she asked what he wanted out of the project. He simply asked for a “comprehensive map” of county and city memorials so people know where to go. The county had a count of 27 memorials. In reality, said Hersey, there are actually 53 memorials. This year, he got his dream of a completed map that showcases all the memorials — sponsored by the Kitsap Mall — that takes visitors on an 8-hour tour if they want to see every memorial, he said. As a retired U.S. Navy vet, the memorials are a little more personal. His first project involved 60 other sailors from the USS Ronald Reagan to work on the Bremerton boardwalk. The group — which also included sailors from the naval hospital — repainted the utilities building on Bremerton’s boardwalk. The building was originally painted white with green striping. It is now traditional haze grey with a dark grey railing, doors and accent stripes. Hersey and the sailors also cleaned up the USS Franklin memorial plaques on the side of the building. “The USS Franklin lost 913 men during World War

II” and their names are etched in granite on three plaques that adorn the walls of this building, along with memorials of two Medal of Honor Recipients on their ship,” said Hersey. “We honor those men and their ship by painting this building to resemble an aircraft carrier island structure in these colors.” In 2012, Lent called Hersey “a treasure for the city.” From Hansville to Bremerton, there are few memorials Hersey hasn’t seen or fixed up in some way. And he isn’t done yet. In the upcoming year, Hersey, 58, already has four projects scheduled. One is at the Sylvan Way Branch Library — a memorial that honors a gentleman who was the founder of a Navy league in town. Bataan Park in Bremerton has three plaques Hersey wants to clean up, and there’s a WWII anchor in Poulsbo sitting next to a veterans plaque. Between April and August, Hersey hopes to plan a communitywide event at Ivy League Cemetery to work on veterans graves that are overgrown. “Time goes fast when you’re having fun,” he said. “Always something to do.”

Dianne Canafax, Kitsap Humane Society volunteer Animal lover Dianne Canafax has spent the last 15 years dedicating volunteer hours at the Kitsap Humane Society. She so loves four-pawed furry friends that she frequently fosters shelter pets in addition to the five animals she has in her home already. “I’ve always loved animals,” she said.

Canafax, a certified pet dog trainer, frequently works with shelter dogs with bad manners such as jumping on guests. Training dogs with positive reinforcement helps better habits sooner and makes them more adoptable, she said. With her wealth of knowledge on dog behavior, Canafax has also founded Kitsap Animal Rescue & Education (KARE) to provide information to the public on welfare education and shelter rescue support. Under KARE, Canafax brings resources to the shelter to educate dog owners on how to work best with their dogs. Some of her classes — all free to the public — include dog socialization tips, helping a fearful dog, and learning how to properly walk with a loose leash. The trainer teaches “Doglish,” a class that helps dog owners learn how to understand canine communication. Pet lovers can keep an eye out in 2014 for one of many classes Canafax will offer. Doglish will be offered on Jan. 19 at 1 p.m. at the training center. The shelter can hold nearly 80 dogs, which means Canafax stays quite busy when she comes in to volunteer three to four times a week. It’s volunteers like Canafax who keep the shelter going, said Sarah Moody, KHS volunteer coordinator. “The staff is very grateful for the support of all of our volunteers, but especially for the support of volunteers like Dianne who give so much of their time and energy to the shelter,” Moody said. “These volunteers not only make life better for the homeless animals in our shelter, they are also powerful ambassadors for the shelter when they are out in the community.”

Friday, January 3, 2014

With limited resources and many animals to care for, Moody said volunteer help is always welcome, especially when the shelter is at full capacity. Even with 296 “active” volunteers — those who have been at the shelter at least once in four months — the shelter usually has about 100 dedicated weekly volunteers. “There is a core group of volunteers who always show up for their assigned shifts and really take on the bulk of the volunteer responsibili-


ties, and they are invaluable to KHS,” Moody said. The program coordinator is looking to recruit more volunteers in the new year for tasks such as early morning walks with dogs. When volunteers like Canafax take on roles such as offering behavioral training, it makes adoptions much more plausible. The avid volunteer said that it’s the “great American shelter dog” that keeps her coming SEE NEWSMAKERS, A11

Ridgetop student arrested for making ‘hit list,’ threats BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

A 12-year-old Ridgetop Junior High student was arrested Dec. 18 for allegedly creating a plan to shoot students and staff at the school. What officials describe as a “hit list” with 18 names on it and floor plans of the school were found during a search of the student’s personal possessions. Based upon information provided to the Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Office (KCSO) by the FBI Seattle Division, the student was taken into custody and booked into Kitsap County Youth Services Center “on a charge of harassment – threats to kill,” states a KCSO press release. The student was not named because he is a

A Ridgetop Junior High student allegedly made threats. minor. The Central Kitsap School District took “significant disciplinary action against the student,” states the release. Deputy Scott Wilson, a spokesman for the Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Office, said he could not

say what that discipline entails, including whether the student was expelled or not. The FBI received a Dec. 15 tip about the 12 year old’s plot from a “concerned adult” who had been monitoring a juvenile chatroom

dialogue on the Internet. Wilson said it was unclear why the parent chose to contact the FBI instead of the local sheriff ’s office. “Chat messages originated by the student included statements of serious concern to law enforcement authorities,” states the release. The information was linked to an address in East Bremerton where sheriff ’s office detectives contacted the student and a parent. Detectives and a FBI special agent contacted Ridgetop Junior High School administrators Dec. 16 and a search of the student’s possessions by school officials “turned up a handdrawn floor plan/map of sections of the school as well as a handwritten ‘hit list,’” stated the release. “It takes it above a cer-

tain level,” said Wilson of the elaborate plans. “We don’t have any indication that anybody else is involved.” Wilson said authorities arrested the student due to the detailed nature of the plans, which included ways to block potential escape routes, but Wilson was unable to comment on any possible motive the student might have had. According to available records, Wilson said the boy has not had any prior issues with law enforcement. Wilson said other specific information, such as what type of gun the boy planned on using, would not be released at this time. He said much of that information is available in sealed juvenile court files. The student planned

to execute the attack with a firearm, but he had no access to one, Wilson added. That determination was based on a search by authorities of his parent’s home and who else he may have been in contact with who may have had firearms. “He’s not involved in the gang culture,” said Wilson. “He was just expressing himself and he did it inappropriately.” Because it was uncertain how serious the situation was, the lead detective on the case did not want to release additional details. When calls started coming in, the department decided to release information — almost a week after the incident — to let the public know what was going on, Wilson said.

to stay where she was as the officer finished up with his arrest. While detaining the female, her handbag fell off the officer’s car onto the pavement where contents —including a 2-inch folding knife — spilled out. When asked what happened, the female “ranted” about waiting for a ride in the McDonald’s parking lot when a male tried to rape her or “attempted to sell her into slavery,” states the report. The officer also noted he believed her to be “under the influence of

a drug or alcohol,” stated the report. The woman also admitted she is schizophrenic. The victim, a bank janitor, was taking trash outside when she was approached by a woman with a knife. The woman yelled, ‘she was going to kill her’ and ‘the victim female ran to her car and locked herself inside,” stated the report. The woman with the knife went around checking the car doors. The woman was booked for attempted assault, second degree with a bail set at $10,000.

LIGHTS AND SIRENS Troubled teen arrested for theft A Bremerton teenager who stole from his grandparents in October was arrested this month on different charges. In October, the 18 year old went to live with his grandparents after being released from jail. While his grandparents were napping, the man stole his grandfather’s Dewalt composite saw, valued at $500, and took off with a female in a red car. A neighbor who saw the grandson leaving with the saw was told by the teen he was going to do some work with his uncle as he put the saw in the trunk. The neighbor informed the grandparents what he had witnessed. The grandson was released from jail the week prior for possession of heroin. According to a KCSO report, his grandfather believes that the saw was be sold for more drug money. On Dec. 6, the male was found at a Bremerton Walmart stealing items from the store with two other individuals. Drugs and drug

Agreement to locate performing arts center signed BY LESLIE KELLY LKELLY@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM

A letter of intent between Kitsap County and the West Sound Performing Arts Center for a new theater has been signed. The letter gives the West Sound Performing Arts Center (WSPAC) the go-ahead to build a performing arts center on the Central Kitsap Community Campus in central Silverdale. The letter was presented to the board of the Central Kitsap Community Council on Dec. 18 by former County Commissioner Josh Brown, who represented the area, until his resignation Dec. 31.

He offered the letter that was signed by all three county commissioners, but was not yet signed by Michael Stowell, the president of WSPAC. Stowell signed the letter Dec. 23. The letter of intent allows the performing arts center to be built on the community campus on Randall Way, where the YMCA now sits. The letter sets out that the campus must also include an 8,000 to 12,000 square foot library and that the library space be planned for in anything that WSPAC builds. To date, Kitsap Regional Libraries (KRL) which plans a new library in Silverdale, has not released a preferred loca-

tion, but is considering the community campus. If KRL decided that the campus is where it wants to build, WSPAC has to allow that, the letter stated. In the letter, the county stipulates that the sole responsibility for financing and building and operating the performing arts center is that of WSPAC. It says WSPAC can select its own architect to design the center, but must keep the county informed on the plans. WSPAC must also ensure that there is adequate parking available on the campus. With 450 parking spaces (mostly used by the YMCA patrons), “WSPAC should enter into discussions with the YMCA and other potential campus partners such as KRL on how parking may be addressed to the benefit of all parties,” the letter states. It also clarified that WSPAC’s master plan should envision how to improve and make viable “the concept of the village commons.” The county’s responsibilities are outlined as leasing the land to WSPAC for $1 a year, and that the lease be modeled after the current lease the county has with the YMCA. Kitsap County will also formally adopt “CK campus design standards” prior to executing the

The county will look to the Central Kitsap Community Council for input on the project and any master planning. The agreement also says the county will begin to look to relocate the Kitsap County Sheriff ’s precinct office and to demolish the Silverdale Community center, also known as the C-Stock building. The costs of demolishing the two buildings and the relocation of the sheriff ’s office belongs with the county, the letter states. Kitsap County will also support grant opportunities for WSPAC, similarly to how it has withx 3.5” the YMCA and Kingston Village Greens.

Meanwhile, a decision on a location for the library is expected to be made within the first few months of 2014. Community meetings are being set to inform area residents about the plans and determine the level of support for a new library. It could be funded through a levy or through fundraising, or a combination of both, library officials have said.

In a letter attached to the WSPAC agreement, Brown said that he and the other commissioners appreciated the work of the Central Kitsap Community Council on coming to an agreement to locate a new performing arts center and possibly a new Silverdale Library on the community campus.

sustainable. “The general fund cannot support (a city fire department),” Lent said. “I’ve told (our firefighters) this and they say they’ve heard I want to get rid of them. I don’t want to get rid of them, but I want to do something that’s sustainable for them and our citizens. With more people paying into a district for a levy and with higher value homes there will be more money from taxes to support fire service.”

Patty Lent, Mayor of Bremerton

Todd Best, former mayoral candidate


Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent cruised to re-election in November with a convincing victory over political newcomer Todd Best. Lent ran on the record she established in her first term on the job and cited her prior experience as a Kitsap County commissioner. Lent, though, also looked ahead. Looking 10 years down the road, Lent said she hopes that the city’s population has grown, home prices have gone up and the fire department is a self-sustaining district of its own. Lent sees a lot of other changes as well. “I see us having tall buildings,” she said. “I see us having more people downtown. I see a fast ferry on the hour or every 45 minutes going to Seattle. I see more artificial turf fields and activities.” In addition, Lent talked about moving the city towards having a city administrator position and making changes to keep the fire department

Although he didn’t fare very well in his first campaign for public office, Todd Best promises he isn’t going to exit public life. In fact, he’s not ruling out another run for office, either for the mayor’s seat again in four years or some other post, perhaps on the city council or some other elected office, prior to that. “Four years is gonna go by quick,” Best said on election night. “I’m only 40 years old, a young guy, and I’ve got a lot of energy. I’ve got a great life and it’s not like I was running because I need a job. I was running because I love Bremerton — I want to affect good, forward-looking change.” Despite Mayor Patty Lent’s wide margin of victory over Best, she earned 66.8 percent of the vote to his 32.5 percent, he said he was far from discouraged and was proud to have had a chance to debate Lent in an effort to make the city more accountable to residents and business owners. Apart from

politicking and campaigning, though, Best promises to stay involved in grassroots efforts to beautify Bremerton that are similar to his past efforts to successfully clean up and completely revamp the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the Ivy Green Cemetery and other volunteer efforts. Although his campaign for mayor is getting further and further away in the rearview mirror, Best still often meets people for the first time who say they voted for him. “I tell them that if everybody who says that actually voted for me I would have won in a landslide,” he joked.

Eric Stevens, Kitsap Humane Society While he joined the Kitsap Humane Society in 2012, Executive Director Eric Stevens, along with the staff and board, has been the force behind the re-organization of the society and shelter which has turned the corner on its questionable financial past. Stevens said he and others are most proud of balancing their budget and erasing the $500,000 budget deficit that KHS inherited in early 2012.

However, he said, KHS’s cash flow remains very, very tight and KHS has no reserves to handle emergency repairs or other sudden spikes in expenses. “This is a critical issue that needs to be addressed going forward,” Stevens said. KHS is also proud that for the fourth year in a row, they have saved the lives and adopted out 94 percent of the pets arriving at KHS. The shelter performed more than 4,000 spay/neuter surgeries in one year for the first time ever. KHS opened its new small dog kennel and significantly increased the rescue and adoption of small dogs from around the region. Some of KHS’s top goals for 2014 include: continuing to strengthen finances to address critical programmatic and cash flow needs; continuing to build community awareness and support; and completing a multi-year strategic plan for KHS to map out needed finan-

cial, programmatic and facility improvements. KHS also hopes to expand the board of directors to 20 members and continue to maintain its high rate of saving animals’ lives; educate the public more about the benefits of spay/neuter surgery in saving lives and reducing animal overpopulation; continue to expand volunteerism and permanently implement the expansion in behavioral rehabilitation services for dogs that began in late 2013.

Roger Zabinski, Port of Bremerton Commissioner Active in the Bremerton/ Chico community for the past several years, Roger Zabinski has given his time to see that the Port of Bremerton properties are financially successful. While he has spoken about seeking other political offices, Zabinski said his focus in 2014 will be on his job as a port commissioner.

Some of the major projects he would like to see the port work on are: finishing phase 2.1 of the Cross SKIA (Airport Way) road; start development on the east side of the runway area; and see the Bremerton Motorsport Park break ground on their new site across Highway 3. “I would like to see the marketing efforts for the Bremerton Marina continue, and I would like to see occupancy reach about 80 percent, more if possible,” he said. He also would like to see the port recruit more companies and add more jobs to the area. “I would like this to include aviation, light manufacturing, and high tech companies,” he said. Additionally, he’d like to see new Port CEO Jim Rothlin work with the commission and the staff to establish a strategic business plan.

Job vacancies expected to double from spring 2013 to spring 2014 OLYMPIA – In a survey last spring, Washington employers reported they expect to nearly double their job openings by spring 2014. According to the Employment Security Department’s “2013 Spring Job-Vacancy and Hiring Survey Report,” job vacancies in Washington increased by 63 percent, from nearly 52,000 in spring 2012 to more than 85,000 in spring 2013. More than two-thirds of the 2013 vacancies were in the

west urban area of the state. Also, 26 percent of the total vacancies were newly created positions, compared to 22 percent a year earlier. More than three-fourths of the total vacancies were permanent positions. The industries with the most vacancies last spring were healthcare and social assistance, with 11,430 vacancies; accommodation and food services, with 11,404 vacancies; and a category called administrative and support

and waste management, with 10,089 vacancies. For the first time, Employment Security asked employers how many vacancies they expected to have 12 months in the future. Employers said they anticipate having 157,214 vacancies during spring 2014, almost double the vacancies they reported for spring 2013. More than half will be in the west urban area of the state. Employment Security surveys employers twice a year

about their job vacancies and new hiring. “The employment picture in early 2013 was the strongest and most optimistic we’ve seen in several years,” said Cynthia Forland, who heads the labormarket research office at Employment Security. The spring 2013 report also showed that employers increased their non-internal hiring last winter by 33 percent, from about 118,000 during the first quarter of 2012 to about 157,000 for the same

time period a year later. Nearly 64 percent of the new hires occurred in the west urban areas of the state. However, starting wages in the west urban area of the state took a hit. Statewide, the average starting wage for new hires in early 2013 was $13.67, compared to $15.45 a year earlier. The decline was driven largely by a large drop in the average starting wage in the west urban area, which fell from $16.84 in 2012 to $14.85 in 2013.

Researchers said the drop in the average wage is likely connected to the increased hiring in low-wage occupations, such as farmworkers, customer service and freight laborers, as well as lower wages offered in some of those occupations compared to a year ago.

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


page 9

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.
