Library sites whittled down to two BY LESLIE KELLY LKELLY@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
And then there were two. It seems that that’s the number of options now being considered for the location for a new Silverdale Library. Although there was a public open house last Thursday to discuss three options for the
library, one of those locations was taken off the table the following day. The three locations originally under consideration were on the Central Kitsap Community Campus property near the Silverdale United Methodist Church and land owned by the Port of Silverdale in Old Town. But at the same time that
library officials and the Central Kitsap Community Council (CKCC) were taking comments on the three locations, commissioners for the Port of Silverdale voted to withdraw the port’s property from consideration. “Kitsap Regional Library is disappointed that the Port of Silverdale voted Thursday
night to withdraw a piece of property in Old Town Silverdale from consideration as a site for the new Silverdale Library,” said Jeff Brody, director of community relations for the Kitsap Regional Library. “KRL has been working with Port Commissioner Lawrence SEE LIBRARY, A9
Tracyton station closure still pending BY LESLIE KELLY LKELLY@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
Bob Heistand remembers the days when the Tracyton Fire Station was brand new. “It was great back then,” Heistand said. “We all loved working here.” Heistand was a volunteer firefighter at the Tracyton station for 29 years, beginning in about 1970. He also served six
and a half years as a fire district commissioner. He and about a dozen other neighbors and residents of Tracyton toured the station Monday during an open house sponsored by Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue. The district is considering closing Tracyton Station 44, at 300 NW Tracy St., because of its age and needed repairs. After touring the building,
Heistand said, “She’s falling apart.” “I hate to see them leave,” he said. “This station is just right close to my house and I’ve always been glad of that. But the expense to keep it open just seems to be too much.” Heistand said he’s not that worried about response times getting any longer, because the efficiency of the district is so good.
“They’re pretty dang quick,” he said. Neighbors Bob and Kay Kono and Phyllis Vettleson came to see the station to give their opinions. “This station is just the same age as my house,” Vettleson said. “I guess that doesn’t speak too well for my house.” Kay Kono said she’s lived in SEE FIRE STATION, A9
Central School District Superintendent Hazel Bauman has resigned from her position citing health issues as the reason for stepping down. David McVicker, assistant superintendent, business and operations, will take over as the interim superintendent effective immediately. The board made a motion to approve McVicker as the interim superintendent until June 30, 2015. “This is a terrific district and community, and I’ve enjoyed my time here,” Bauman was quoted as saying in a district press release. “We’ve got some great initiatives underway, and I’d been looking forward to leading this work through next June. Unfortunately, my health will not allow me to continue. I would just ask for privacy for myself and my family during this time.” Bauman was not present during the special session. During the meeting, the CKSD school board members went into executive session to discuss personnel matters regarding Bauman’s letter she turned in on Monday regarding her resignation. Her letter reads as follows: “Dear Chairman Gaines and Members of the Board: Due to unforeseen circumstances involved my physical health, and with deep regret, I am resigning my position as superintendent of the Central Kitsap School District. I request you accept my resignation effective June 30, 2014. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of such a great organization and to help serve the needs of the students, staff, and community.” It was after the second executive session that the single internal candidate, McVicker, was considered for the interim position. McVicker’s been with the district since 1987 where he started as Brownsville Elementary’s principal. “I am as disappointed as the board is,” said McVicker of Bauman’s resignation. “Not
CKSD Superintendent Hazel Bauman only did Hazel begin to get us in the direction that we needed to go, but I learned a lot from her. I’m also honored to be able to take on this position in the district.” After coming out of the first executive session, CKSD Board President Mark Gaines read Bauman’s letter to the board and small audience regarding her resignation. “I’m trying not to get emotional here,” Gaines said, choking up. Other board members offered well wishes and their disappointment to hear of Bauman’s resignation. “We’ve benefitted greatly from her energy,” said Jeanie Schulze, CKSD board member. Schulze noted that Bauman was able to throughly relate and understand the roles of teachers and administrators throughout the district. Board member Chris Stokke echoed Schulze’s comments. “She’s done a great job since she’s been here,” Stokke said. “She feels horrible for sending her resignation down. We’ve got a lot to thank her for.” Stokke said he saw Bauman on Monday when she delivered the news to him, and she looked “weary” and had lost weight. “This hurts,” said Eric Greene, board member. “She does need to get better. She needs to put herself first at this particular time. I just hope that she gets better and that we pick up and carry on in the direction that she got us pointed in her short time here.” SEE BAUMAN, A9

Adrian Ramiro Garcia Adrian Ramiro Garcia passed away in the early morning hours of March 14, 2014, two days after his first birthday. Adrian was born on March 12, 2013 to Luis and Samantha Garcia of Bremerton. He was airlifted to the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit at Seattle Children’s Hospital the next day after doctors discovered a major heart defect. Adrian underwent his first open-heart surgery at nine days old and remained in very critical care for the next month. He made great strides in his recovery, only to contract rhinovirus, which pushed him into heart failure. After he fought for months, he was placed on the heart transplant list and received his new heart Nov. 20, 2013. A month or so before his first birthday, his family faced the fact that his new heart would not lead him to the long and healthy life they had hoped for. Adrian passed away peacefully in his mother’s arms with his father by their side. He is survived by his parents; big brother, Damario Garcia; grandparents, Jesus and Marina Garcia, Tom Pierce and Karen Lemagie; uncle, Sergio Garcia; aunts, Mara Lemagie, Emily Lemagie, and Shannon Pierce; great-grandparents, great-aunts and uncles, and many cousins. A celebration of his life will took place at Island Center Hall on Bainbridge on March 22. Donations may be made to Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation and Ronald McDonald House Charities in Seattle.

CSTOCK will continue its 2014 season with a duo of Hans Christian Andersen’s tales, Rats and The Nightingale. The two exciting oneact musicals create another charming evening for the entire family, with a simple set, unforgettable characters and engaging stage action. Hans Christian Andersen’s, Rats is a lively, eclectic musical and not to be missed. The rats are taking over Hamelin, and nobody, including the greedy mayor, knows what to do. But who turns up, the Pied Piper. He is an odd gentleman who offers to solve the town’s dilemma for a small fee. Unfortunately, after the Piper makes good on his promise, the town’s people claim they are too poor to pay the fee. What follows is a life lesson about keeping your word. Hans Christian Andersen’s The Nightingale is an experience full of enchantment and theatrical fun. The story is about an emperor who prefers the tinkling of a bejeweled mechanical bird to the song of a real nightingale. A number of events proceed from there, but it is not until the Emperor’s deathbed that he realizes the irreplaceable value of a genuine living nightingale and her distinctive melodies. Opening night is March 28 at 7:30 with additional performances on March 29, 30 and April 4, 5, closing April 6. Sunday performances are at 6 p.m. Take advantage of our lower ticket prices, rang-

Mended Hearts to meet April 2 Harrison Medical Center is partnering with Mended Hearts, (www.mendedhearts. org) a national and community-based nonprofit organization focused on providing support for patients and families affected by heart disease, to start a chapter here in Kitsap County. An informational meeting will be held at Harrison Medical Center, Bremerton, on April 2 for those who want to learn more about this proposed Kitsap County chapter. As the oldest peer-to-peer cardiac support group in the country, Mended Hearts partners with 460 hospitals and rehabilitation clinics across the United States. Mended Hearts is recognized for its role in fostering a positive patient-care experience, and provides services to heart patients through visiting programs, educational forums. “Harrison Medical Center has had an open heart program in Kitsap County for the last 10 years, and thousands of patients have passed through these doors during that time,” said cardiothoracic surgeon William Reed, MD, FACS, FCCP. “Most of these patients continue to live in the community and carry out their normal activities. “A Mended Hearts program allows them to meet, share their stories, and address con-
cerns that affect all of them. It can provide reassurance for new patients who are facing an open heart surgery or a cardiac intervention. “ To learn more, visit mendedhearts.org or email Theresa Reed, Harrison cardiovascular care coordinator, at theresa. email@example.com.
The meeting location is 10452 Silverdale Way, Silverdale. CHADD offers support and information for parents, AD/HD adults, educators, and health care professionals. For further information, call Lynn Myrvang at 360-779-5362 or Kerry Miller at 360-697-3922.

OPINION Central Kitsap
Let the sunshine in
Washington state’s public records act is a straightforward law designed to allow the public to see what its governments are up to. More often than not, though, the law is used by government officials to delay and block citizens from getting their hands on what is rightfully theirs. We’ve had countless run-ins with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue, the City of Bremerton, the Port of Bremerton, the Bremerton and Central Kitsap school districts and other agencies when it comes to requests for records. There are exemptions to the law that allow agencies to deny requests. More often than not, though, agencies take as long as they possibly can to respond and try to shoehorn certain documents into an exempted status, rather than simply turning over what is plainly a public document. A perfect example occurred last week when we asked CKFR for photos of Chief Scott Weninger, board chairman Dave Fergus and firefighter Ronny Smith. A few weeks prior to that, it took us more than a week to get a photo of Patrol Chief Gary Simspon from the sheriff’s office. In the case of the fire district delay, we had to send a reporter to the lobby of the CKFR headquarters to take photographs of photographs of Weninger and Fergus hanging on the lobby wall. To get around the obstruction from the sheriff’s office, we had to scan a photograph from the Kitsap County Sheriff’s annual report. In all of these cases, there are multiple publicly available photographs that have already been published and are circulating throughout Kitsap County. The photographs, in a format that is too small to reproduce on the pages of this newspaper, are also all over the Internet. But, rather than taking a minute or two to email us photos we can print, the agencies instead insisted that we file a records request so they can drag their collective feet and drum up any possible reasons they can think of to say, “no.” It shouldn’t be this way. Take a look at the what the law actually says (emphasis added): “The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies that serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may maintain control over the instruments that they have created. This chapter shall be liberally construed and its exemptions narrowly construed to promote this public policy and to assure that the public interest will be fully protected. In the event of conflict between the provisions of this chapter and any other act, the provisions of this chapter shall govern.” A little bit of common sense goes a long way when it comes to the public records act. Bureaucrats playing games, on the other hand, does nothing but frustrate the public and leads to unnecessary acrimony.

April brings a shower of local events I love April. It is that wonderful turning point where you kiss the worst part of winter goodbye and spring has become the official season. I keep pretty busy with what I have going on in my life. Sure, there is an ebb and flow. There are also certain times of the year that I purposely scale back on what I do for the service of others and take a little more time here and there for myself. Springtime is apparently not one of those times that I like to cut back too much. I am simply way too excited to get outside to start working on my yard and enjoying the warm sun-filled days. Looking at my April calendar this week, I was amazed that most of my weekends and many a weeknight were already filled up. Coming up on Friday, April 4 and Saturday, April 5 is the Annual Washington State Science and Engineering Fair held at Bremerton High School. I have written about this event before as my own child is participating again this year. Even if you do not have a student who is participating, you should come check it out. Lots of activities are happening on site to keep everyone
entertained even during the few times the doors to the exhibits are closed for judging. If our family was not already committed to the science fair, there is the Fourth Annual
Colleen Smidt Heart for the Homeless 5K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, April 5. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. and check-in is at Evergreen Park, 1500 Park Ave. The run starts at 9 a.m. Pre-register at www.kitsaprescue.org. Coming up on April 26 is round two of the Gateway Clean Up. While the numbers of volunteers were considerable in round one this past October, and their efforts were more than impressive, as a group we did not quite reach all of the areas that were begging to be conquered. Check in for this round
will be in the same location across from Kitsap Transit and Volunteer Bremerton is looking for willing community members to assist in the weeding and clean-up efforts between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. More information can be found on the Volunteer Bremerton Facebook page. Now for the flower portion of April. I was excited to learn this past week that one of my favorite businesses is moving back to the downtown area. Paul’s Flowers will be moving into space at 1210 Pacific Ave. down near Evergreen Park. I encourage everyone to patronize the businesses surrounding Evergreen Park in the coming weeks and months. These businesses have persevered through what is a naturally slow time of the year. That was made even worse this year by extensive construction projects in the area which still have several more months to go before all the work is completed. Whatever you choose, there’s lots to do outside and lots of ways to support your community. Colleen Smidt is a longtime resident of Bremerton and can be reached at smidtracing@ hotmail.com.

Making our position clear on contract offer Harrison Medical Center is here to make a positive difference in people’s lives through exceptional healthcare. Every decision we make is with the goal of providing safe, quality around-theclock care for our community for generations to come. It’s the same philosophy that guided us to our affiliation with Franciscan Health System. And it has been the guiding principle with which we approached negotiations with UFCW Local 21 for a new contract covering our ProTech employees, which includes nursing assistants,
pharmacists, technicians and others. UFCW represents three bargaining units at Harrison totaling nearly 1,600 members — about 60 percent of Harrison’s workforce. If all units stopped working at the same time, hospital operations would be crippled. It is with this goal in mind that Harrison proposed a labor peace agreement, a major point of contention in our negotiations. The language Harrison proposed would prevent the members from refusing to cross a picket line in sympathy with other bargaining units, including the other two units represented by
I would like to clarify comments I made during the Central Kitsap Community Council meeting of March 20, regarding a new location for the Silverdale branch of the Kitsap Regional Library. I have been working for more than 15 years for the creation of the Central Kitsap Community Campus and a new library for Silverdale. There is no one in Silverdale who is more interested in building our new library and building it now.
During the meeting, I suggested that, in deciding upon a new location, we should consider our vision for Silverdale for the next 30 to 50 years. However, I was not suggesting that we wait 30 to 50 years to start building our new library. To the contrary, I believe that we should proceed with all deliberate speed on building our new library now. Having said that, I remind all that, wherever we build the new library, that building will probably serve our community for the next 50 to 100 years. So, this is a decision that requires very careful deliberation and should not be rushed. I do understand the value
BY MARIE LAMARCHE HARRISON MEDICAL CENTER
Marie LaMarche Local 21. We respect the right of a bargaining unit to strike
when a contract expires and if negotiations come to an impasse. However, we need to ensure that other employees working under separate labor contracts will continue to do so. We do not want those employees to be at risk of being penalized with union fines for coming to work. Most importantly, we want the hospital to remain open. As the only hospital in Kitsap County, and the region’s only level III emergency trauma center, we cannot compromise the safety of our patients and the security of our community. Labor peace agreements are standard in healthcare
organizations for this very reason. Similar language is in place in virtually all other Local 21-represented contracts in healthcare, as well as in Harrison’s contract with registered nurses, who are represented by Local 21. We know that providing a quality work environment and a competitive wage is linked to a quality workforce. That is why we agreed to wage increases between 2 and 2.5 percent in addition to annual step increases, as well as a ratification bonus that would approximate the pay increases employees would have earned had the contract been signed before it expired. We have asked
local municipal government for Silverdale. This is important to remember because, in Kitsap County, the historical model is that the local community and government provide the actual physical building for that community’s library branch. So, I would encourage the commissioners to provide KRL the best possible deal for the placement of our library on the Community Campus. Whatever deal
the commissioners offer KRL should be better than the deal that was provided to the YMCA. After all, in Kitsap County, providing a home for a local KRL branch is a responsibility of our local municipal government. Kitsap County has been sucking substantial tax revenues out of Silverdale for more than 30 years and, now, it is time for the county to make this investment in and for Silverdale.
UFCW to allow its members to vote on our most recent proposal. At its best, the relationship between union and employer is a partnership in which each side strives to understand the other and develop solutions together. We hope that UFCW shares our goals of ensuring our employees are compensated fairly, that our community is safe, and that we can care for our patients for years to come. Marie LaMarche is the executive director of Human Resources for Harrison Medical Center.
A look at the library and Silverdale’s future of deadlines. So, I understand KRL’s selection of June 5 as their deadline for making a decision about the location for our new library. But, I do hope that KRL remains flexible with this deadline so that Kitsap County has adequate time to develop the best possible proposal for the placement of the library on the Central Kitsap Community Campus. I would remind all that Commissioner Linda Streissguth has been in her job for less than three months and should be given sufficient time to address this important decision. The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners are the

Harrison hosts job shadow for high school students BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
Every day, students in high school hear about their options when it comes to the future. College, technical schools and heading straight into the job market are all viable possibilities. But how easy is it to choose a career without really knowing what a day on the job is like? Last week, seniors and juniors convened at Harrison Medical Center campuses from Silverdale to Bremerton to participate in a job shadow program for those interested in the medical field. The program allows students to get a better feel of different jobs in the medical field, like nutrition, hematology, nursing and similar professions, said Lalonda Hansen, Harrison Medical Center Human Resource
Specialist. “We do allow them on the floors so they can be in clinical situations from phlebotomy to microbiology,” Hansen said. For David Degnan, a senior at Crosspoint Academy, the opportunity was priceless. When his grandmother went back to school six years ago to be a nurse, he decided he wanted to follow in her footsteps to be in the medical field. “I’ve always been interested in the medical field since then,” said Degnan, who wore a blue lab coat throughout his job shadow. “I think it’s very smart to go into the medical field, especially with the expanding opportunities. I think it’s really interesting. That’s why I’m so appreciative of this.” Degnan toured the blood bank, hematology and microbiology areas of the

Once a year students from across the county have the opportunity to participate in the hospital’s job shadowing program, Hansen said. Every year the popular program has between 40 and 50 participants from both public and private high schools. While the hospital is where most of the students are hosted, some visit the hospital’s urgent care centers as well for the job shadowing. Students are required to fill out a questionnaire on their intentions for participating, and they must also have a reference letter recommending them for the experience, she said. School counselors then decide which students can attend the job shadow event.
Medical tech Virginia Angud fielded questions and showed students around her department last Friday morning. Angud frequently trains the newbies in her department, so working with students was enjoyable, she said. “I love training people. I’ve trained almost everybody here, I think,” she said. “Medical is a really interesting field. It’s challenging, and you see new things every day.” For Angud and fellow staff members, that means clearly reading various slides, updating information and keeping up with technological advances in the medical field. Bremerton High School Senior Nick Torres said taking a half day to tour the facility was well worth his time. “It’s pretty cool. It’s a lot of information,” he said. “I’ve done labs before, but I’ve never done a college-level lab yet. I feel like this is even more precise.” After students finished spending time with their department mentors, they offered evaluations and were given certificates for their job shadow participation. As the event dwindled, one staff member admitted she wished job shadowing would have been available when she was a high school student. “It would of been very beneficial,” said Michelle Hopson, medical technologist. “I didn’t know what I was going to major in until my junior year of college.”

MARCH 29, 2014 11 AM - 4 PM KITSAP COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS AT THE PAVILION
Military Appreciation Day 2014 BY JESSICA GINET JGINET@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
Welcome to Military Appreciation Day 2014! For more than 10 years Kitsap County has celebrated the military presence in our area communities. Kitsap County serves as the home of several military installations under the Navy Region northwest designation. According to the Navy Region NW Public Affairs Office, there are 21,000 active duty, 6,000 reserve and 35,000 retirees in the Kitsap area. This is in addition to the 42,000 military family members that live and work in the area. Their children attend local schools; service men and women live, work and play here. The contribution of these individuals to our local economy is substantial. Military Appreciation Day 2014 is meant to be both fun and educational. Local businesses and those that serve the military have generously provided free and discounted items for our local service men and women. Military Appreciation Day 2014 is Saturday, March 29, from 11 a.m. to
4 p.m. in the Kitsap Pavilion at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. The event is free and open to the public. Over 80 commercial booths are reserved in the Kitsap Pavilion on March 29 to provide a huge ‘thank you’ to our military members. Every booth will donate prizes; prize winners will be announced throughout the day. “One of the grand prizes is a smart tablet,” said Chairperson Sandra Butler from Oxford Suites. Prizes are given to local active duty, reservist and retirees who must show their military identification in order to claim their winnings. Fun filled activities and events will appeal to the entire family. The doors of the Kitsap Pavilion will open at 11 a.m. Door prizes will be awarded beginning at 12:15 p.m. The Marine Corps Color Guard will present the flags of the Marines, Navy, Army, Coast Guard and Air Force. Local student Rachael Poguchi will sing the National Anthem. The event will feature honorable keynote speakers. They include: Congressman Derek Kilmer; Michael Wettlaufer, Commanding Officer for the USS John C Stennis;
and Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent. Entertainment options will appeal to folks of all ages, with dance performances by the Galletta School of Dance and Performing Arts, the Northwest School of Dance, and music performances from Ted Brown Music.

U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer will speak at Saturday’s Military Appreciation Day. The local military presence is a cornerstone of our community working as both a partner in local initiatives and a defender of our freedom. Part of the reason that an event like this is important is because it is an opportunity to say thank you to those who have served. It provides our community with the opportunity to back up our words with deeds – something that Kitsap County has always embraced. Home to more than 25,000 active duty and reserve Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Air Force, and National Guard personnel, 50,000 veterans, and their families, our region has a lot to be thankful for. We also have a lot to do to properly thank our military neighbors. We have to continue to provide outstanding education with opportunities to the children of military families, we need to remain committed to ensuring that those who have served
don’t have to fight for a job here at home, and we must help veterans and service members get the benefits that they have earned. T he Si lverd a le Chamber of Commerce, the hosts of this outstanding event, is a shining example of the dedication of our community to our local heroes. The 2014 Military Appreciation Day and Informational Fair will provide military sevicepeople, veterans, and their families with an introduction to what our community has to offer. Moreover, it’s an oppor-
tunity for the whole community to learn how we can support those in service and those who have served. I am honored to welcome you and participate in this great event that recognizes the sacrifices of so many of our neighbors. Your participation in todays’ event demonstrates your thanks and dedication. Yet we must remain committed to our friends and neighbors and strive to do more. Thank you for your support to our local military personnel and this outstanding event.

Coast Guard joins Military Appreciation Day BY LESLIE KELLY LKELLY@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
Some of what they do is very “classified.” But members of the U.S. Coast Guard Maritime Force Protection Unit (MFPU) stationed at Naval Base KitsapBangor will be on hand during Military Appreciation Day to answer questions about their work here on the Kitsap Peninsula. According to Commander Thomas P. Sullivan, the 150 members of the Coast Guard assigned at Bangor are charged with conducting waterborne operations to ensure the safety and security of the U.S. Navy Strategic Assets. In layman’s terms, that means escorting the Trident Submarines attached to Bangor to and from their designated “drop points.” While the actual locations of those drop points are not made public, the crews keep a close eye on the submarines, protecting them from possible enemy attack as they leave the Kitsap Peninsula area to go on their missions. “I could tell you, but I’d have to kill you,” joked Sullivan when asked about drop points. Sullivan said the mission of the Coast Guard’s MFPU is to employ the Coast
Cmdr. Tom Sullivan Guard’s law enforcement authority and jurisdiction to enforce a moving security zone for naval submarines transiting the waters of the Puget Sound. The MFPU Mission Statement sums it up succinctly, he said. “We are a team of vigilant guardians entrusted to protect instruments of U.S. strategic deterrence through protection by presence and defense by force,” reads the statement. The coast Guard MFPU is funded through the U.S. Navy. Additionally, the Coast Guard in this area also responds to oil spills and search and rescue calls. Sullivan has been commander at Bangor for the past two and a half years. He’s had

tions along the 1500 mile U.S and Canadian border from western Lake Superior to the Straits of Mackinac. In conjunction with these missions, he directed seven multi-mission small boat stations across Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. In partnership with the U.S. Border Patrol and Royal Canadian Mounted Police, he was also instrumental in expanding joint U.S. and Canada law enforcement operations along Lake Superior and the St. Maries River under IBET (Integrated Border Enforcement Teams). He is from Detroit, but attended high school in South Florida where it was a neighbor who suggested he think about joining the Coast Guard. “I babysat for some neighbors,” he said. “He was a
teacher and he kept asking me about what I planned to do after high school. I didn’t know so he took me down to talk to the Coast Guard. I decided I really liked their mission, especially the humanitarian aid. And since I’d grown up around the water, it seemed a natural fit.” He has been stationed in Florida, North Carolina, Washington D.C., New Jesery, Michigan and Hawaii. He has many stories about rescues. “Over the years, I’ve been involved in hundreds of search and rescue cases where we pulled folks out of the water,” he said. One that has stayed in his mind was early in his career where he helped rescue a U.S. fishing boat that caught fire and had drifted into Cuban waters at the height of the Cold War. Prior to Bangor, he was the executive officer of Electronic Systems Support Unit (ESU) Honolulu. There, he was responsible for all electronic, computer, network and navigation systems support for over 45 units throughout the 14th District from Hawaii, west to Singapore, and south to American Samoa. Enlisting in the Coast Guard in 1981, Sullivan achieved the rank of Chief Petty Officer prior to being selected for Officer Candidate School in 1994. His more than 32 years of active duty include operational tours aboard three Florida-based
medium endurance cutters; Group Fort Macon in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina and Station Lake Worth Inlet in West Palm Beach, Florida. His staff assignments include Coast Guard Headquarters Washington, DC; the Electronic Engineering Center in Wildwood, New Jersey and the 14th District in Honolulu, Hawaii. Commander Sullivan’s personal awards include the Meritorious Service Medal, the Coast Guard Commendation Medal with operational device and five gold stars, the Coast Guard Achievement Medal with operational device, the Commandant’s Letter of Commendation Ribbon, the expert pistol medal, the enlisted cutterman’s insignia and a number of other service medals and unit awards. Sullivan is married to the former Ann Marie Warner. They have two grown children, Gregory and Shannon. Greg is a Reserve Boatswain’s Mate Second Class attached to Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet in West Palm Beach, and Shannon is the wife of Army Veteran Sergeant Blake Lam of Silverdale. Sullivan and his wife plan to retire in Silverdale following a Change of Command this summer at Bangor. Sullivan’s crew plan to bring a 33-foot Special Purpose Craft Law Enforcement boat to be on display at Military Appreciation Day.

MILITARY APPRECIATION DAY
Her organization will get you back in order
BY LESLIE KELLY LKELLY@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
She can transform the clutter into calm. That’s her mission. Sheila Taylor is the force behind Clutter Controllers, a business she officially opened in 2013. As a Navy w i f e , she was l o o king for something to get her back into the work Sheila Taylor force. S h e and her husband and their daughter came to the Bremerton-area in 2009 after her husband retired from the Navy to be near family. “I had a background in accounting and so I went looking for something, not knowing how intense the competition would be,” she said. “A friend said to me that as OCD as I am, I should use what I’m good at and offer my services.” OCD — obsessive compulsive disorder — is often used as a term to denote people who are highly organized. Taylor admits the term fits her and that she was often called in to help family and friends get organized. “I’d been doing that for years, helping many of my Navy friends who were often disorganized because of having to move so often,” she said. “I’d be at a friend’s house and she’d say something about how disorganized her panty was and I’d say ‘Oh, let me help.’” She spent four months putting together a business plan and opened in January of last year. She offers one-time services, and follow-up maintenance sessions if desired. “My goal is to teach the client how to keep themselves organized,” she said. “But in some cases, they just don’t have the time and they opt to have me come back once or twice a month to keep them in order.” In each case, she spends 60 to 90 minutes on location walking through the area to be organized with the client. “I ask a lot of questions,” she said. “I ask them if they were to picture the area as they wanted it, what would it look like?” she said.
BEFORE Taylor gives her suggestions for how to get things in order. Then she schedules time for the makeover. In most cases, she works on an area or a room at a time. Small projects can take one or two days. Larger projects can take three days or more. She will work by the hour at $40 an hour or will give a cost per project on the larger projects. Many times, Taylor said, all that is needed is a fresh set of eyes. “Once someone has walked around a pile for so long, or avoided a mess, they feel that that can’t tackle it,” she said. “They know what they want, but they just can’t get started.” When she organizes, she looks for ways to use what’s on hand. “If there’s a straw basket in one room that is just sitting empty, but can be used in another, I do that first,” she said. “I like to recycle, reuse and repurpose.” If other shelving or con-

One thing she doesn’t do is judge. “I always tell my clients that what we do is private and won’t be shared with anyone,” she said. “I tell them that I’m not there to judge them, only to help them.” She takes before and after photos, but only with the client’s permission. She’s done all rooms of the house, garages, art studios, photographer’s prop rooms, business warehouses, and even classrooms. “Schools in this area are adopting that Common Core standards which include saving time by being organized,” Taylor said. “We organize classrooms in agreement with
the Common Core’s subdimensions of use of physical environment and classroom routines and rituals.” Her work can actually save clients money and time. She noted that many times cleaning out the pantry and keeping it that way helps a client know what they have so that they don’t over buy or let food go bad. In the home office, it means saving time. “It’s estimated that the average worker spends 55 minutes a day looking for things in and around his or her desk,” she said. “Being organized has a profound affect on productivity and efficiency.” Taylor will have a booth at Military Appreciation Day and can be contracted through her website, www. cluttercontrollers.org, or call her at 360-917-9004.

Thanks from the commander of the Stennis On behalf of the 2,900 men and women stationed aboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis, and the thousands of other sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guard personnel stationed throughout Kitsap Peninsula and the region, I want to thank our local communities for your support on Military Appreciation Day! It is truly an honor to be asked to participate in this wonderful event. Military Appreciation Day celebrated at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds is particularly special for the Stennis crew. About this time last year, we were making preparations to transit the Strait of Malacca, reenter the Pacific from the Indian Ocean and prepare to return home. Since returning to our fantastic home port of Bremerton in May, we have had time to reunite with loved ones and reintegrate into our neighborhoods and with our
friends. We also have many new shipmates who arrived in the area for the first time. We were all welcomed by the community with open arms. Since June, we have had the privilege of working alongside our neighbors and friends at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard while conducting major maintenance on Stennis. Our mission right now is getting the maintenance done on time and on budget. The demand for aircraft carriers, ships and submarines at sea remains high and our job is to return Stennis to operational readiness in the near future. Imperative in our return was resuming our community service initiatives throughout Kitsap County. We have a tradition of giving back to the communities that have provided such enduring support to the military, our veterans and our families. Our sailors participate

Thank you from one military spouse to another BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
If there’s one thing that’s taken awhile for me to get used to, it is hearing “thank you for your service” from others. Like many in our community, I am a Navy wife. My husband enlisted four years ago, and I’ve never known anything other than being a military spouse. Prior to meeting my husband, I would often approach others in uniform to thank them for their service. Both my grandfathers served, one of my uncles served, and four of my cousins dedicated
time to the military. It’s in my blood to be a bit patriotic and proud of our service members. Yet, it never dawned on me to turn to the person standing next to those service members — a spouse, friend, mother or child — and thank them as well. Perhaps it is because the uniform of a military service member sends such a strong message of service that I was blind to the fact that even the plain-clothed civilian deserved a “thank you” as well. It’s also why I am so surprised when others will thank my husband and myself for “our” service to the country

in which we live. I expect him to get the handshake and gratitude. So when a complete stranger turns to me and gives thanks, it is always a pleasant surprise. After going through our first deployment together in 2012, I realized very quickly why families deserved thanks for their “service” as well. There is nothing that can prepare a family for the loneliness, sadness, anxiety and anger that is the direct result of going through a forced deployment. The stress put on the family unit — or just couples — is tremendous. While my husband was deployed to the Middle East, I
sent several emails a day, a few letters a week, and I anxiously awaited the rare phone call. My cell phone was glued to my hand, and even at night my ringer was on the loudest possible setting to awake me if he called from several time zones away. Before his departure, we both agreed to keep a journal of our daily activities and how it felt to be apart. Well, life soon got in the way, and our journals were only filled out for the first few months of the deployment. Once he got back, we exchanged journals to read one another’s ramblings and scribbles. Although my husband is

The Kitsap Area Veterans Alliance (KAVA) will hold a countywide Stand Down Saturday, April 26, at the Sheridan Community Center in Bremerton from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The purpose of the event is to make available to local veterans and their families a variety of free services ranging from clothing donations and haircuts to legal advice and even medical aid for those who need it. “It is a very needed event that helps Veterans and their family members who have served us well,” said Jim McKenna, Kitsap County Veterans Assistance Program Manager. KAVA is a group of local veterans, businesses and donors who organize events like the stand down to
support the county’s military community. Prior stand down events have been well received, inspiring KAVA to continue the program. “There were around 200 people in attendance last year,” said McKenna. “The demand is still high, the need is there, and we’re anticipating a good turn out.” Of course, not all attendees are seeking serious assistance. Veterans have been known to attend the event simply to mingle with friends, have lunch and see familiar faces. Spouses and children are welcome, and similar assistance will be available to them as well. Veterans seeking assistance will be required to provide either a DD214 form or official discharge papers and unaccompanied relatives will need to supply the same paperwork and proof of relation to a veteran. If an individual does not have the
required paperwork, there will be a verification service available at the event. “There will be legal assistance, clothing, food, hair cuts and a dental clinic there,” said McKenna. Also present at the event will be representatives from the Work Source program to help veterans with finding employment as well as resume writing assistance and job interview tips. “It’s really a community coming together to help veterans,” said McKenna. The Sheridan Community Center is located at 680 Lebo Blvd., in Bremerton. The term “stand down” typically describes the brief period of light duty that follows the return of a military unit or ship from a deployment. It can also describe the stopping of a course of action.

Students release salmon fry into Clear Creek BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
Last week, students across Kitsap County said goodbye to salmon they’ve been raising for the last few months in classroom tanks. As part of the “Salmon in the Classroom” program through the Clear Creek Trail Task Force, various classrooms raised salmon eggs in tanks until the fish could be released into streams as fry. Last Thursday, Clear Creek Elementary fourth graders went in pairs with kindergarten buddies to release their salmon into the stream. Some named their fish as they let them go off into the clear, babbling creek. Students chose names like “Flower” and “Lola” before releasing the wiggling chum
salmon. “They get personally attached,” said fourth grade math and science teacher Barbara Bromley. She said some of her students wanted to keep the fish just a little bit longer to watch them grow. While the kindergarten students learned a few things about salmon, Bromley’s students have spent almost the full year studying the life cycle and habits of salmon. Ainara Singleton, 9, said that studying salmon in a variety of ways — including dissection — was “really cool.” Singleton led her kindergarten buddy by the hand as they walked down the embankment to the Clear Creek stream just a few minutes walk from the school. The student named her

On site, Kirschbaum handed students their small, clear cups filled with a twitchy salmon waiting to be released. She also showed the students a map of where their salmon would travel once released into the frigid waters.
“I’m a teacher, and so I just love the kids getting this experience outside and being able to apply what they learn in the classroom to real life,” Kirschbaum said. While small groups of students said goodbye to their fish, other students focused on planting trees just up the hill from the stream. Bromley and other members of the Clear Creek Task

Force wanted students to understand the importance of healthy trees in the area to feed nutrients into the creek for the fish. Since September, the students have been taught in a variety of mediums about the fish, Bromley said. In October, they visited Grover Creek Fish Hatchery to see the early stages of salmon that would later be in their classroom. In January, Bromley’s students received 100 eggs to observe and study prior to the release date on the first day of spring. “They now appreciate what an integral part of our environment they are,” Bromley said of the day’s activities. “It’s neat for them to see a process of a living organism go from birth to
almost a teen.” Additionally, students made beaded salmon necklaces and played a game to learn the life cycle events inside classrooms while other students were outside releasing salmon. Older students also put on a salmon sock puppet play to better explain the life cycles to other students. To top off the day, student pairs paraded around the school in handmade paper salmon costumes. “Salmon in the Classroom was started in 1987 by a local chapter of the Kiwanis Club, to help restore salmon runs to Clear Creek, while educating school children about the life cycle of salmon,” according to the Clear Creek Trail website.
If you don’t make your final arrangements, who will? Surely, it’s not a responsibility you want to leave to your children. Talk to one of our counselors or funeral directors to find out why planning in advance is one of the most economical and loving things you can do for your family. It lessens the financial and emotional burden from them during a difficult time and spares them from making the painful decisions.

Volunteer Chore Services seeking volunteers BY SERAINE PAGE SPAGE@SOUNDPUBLISHING.COM
Catholic Community Services is calling for people of all talents to volunteer for chore services through the organization. The Catholic Community Services/Volunteer Services Program has served Kitsap County’s low-income elders and disabled adults for the last 33 years with the help of volunteers throughout the peninsula. Volunteers may spend time working individually or in groups, twice a month or even every day. “We help to keep them in their own homes before they go to an assisted living facility,” said Donna Jones, Catholic Community Services program coordi-
nator. The greatest need at the moment is for builders to construct wheelchair ramps and do minor home repairs, Jones said. A few of her volunteers have passed away or moved, leaving her organization with fewer and fewer volunteers. Some are getting older, and they can’t handle the physical requirements of construction building. One group that has consistently been of great help to the organization is the Bluebills volunteer group, Jones said. The Bluebills are a group of Boeing retirees who have knowledge in engineering and construction and frequently do builds together. “They’re getting older,” Jones said of the 20-year-
Wayne Nilen Johnson 73, of Silverdale
July 12,1940 to March 12th, 2014 Wayne Nilen Johnson was born in Bottineau, ND to Joseph and Beatrice Johnson. He was the oldest of eight children. He graduated from Bottineau High School and then received his business certificate from college. Wayne married Joan Bergman in September 1961. They moved to Bismarck, ND to start their new life together. While in Bismarck, ND, they had two sons, Kirk and Craig. November 1968 they ventured out West to Bremerton, WA., where Wayne started his new job at the Kitsap Sun newspaper as credit manager, and later as a office manager. In 1989 he started his own excavating business. Wayne was an active member of the Holy Trinity Catholic Church and enjoyed taking the Eucharist to shut-Ins. He developed real friendships with those people. He was a very gregarious, gentle, and caring man with a sense of humor that most enjoyed. He was totally involved in his son’s lives and was their best friend as they grew up. He coached Kirk’s little league baseball team and was active in Craig’s Bow Scout Group. Wayne enjoyed fishing, golfing, motorcycling, and in later years his golf cart enabled him to join our neighbors, children, and pets on our half mile road. Wayne passed away peacefully with his wife by his side. He was preceded in death by his father Joseph. Wayne is survived by his wife Joan, mother Beatrice, sons; Kirk (Melissa) of Tacoma and Craig (Judy) of Gig Harbor, two grandsons; Nicholas and Kyle, seven siblings; Julie (Merle) Kroeplin, Gary (Marsha) Johnson, Patty (Arnie) Kleppe, Ryan (Bev) Johnson, Paul (Sharon) Johnson, Barton (Marina) Johnson, and Cathy (Mark) Brekke, plus 5 nieces and 7 nephews. There will be a Funeral Mass and celebration of life on Monday, May 5, at 11 a.m. at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church, located at 4215 Pine Rd. NE in Bremerton. An online memorial can be seen at http://www.tuellmckeebremerton. com/. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to a charity of your choice in Wayne’s name or to “Disabled American Vets” www.dav.org

old Bluebill group. “There’s gonna come a time when they can’t do this much longer.” According to the Bluebill’s website, the retirees put in 88,319 hours of volunteer work in 2012 alone across western Washington, including Kitsap County. It is Jones’ hope that similarly enthusiastic individuals will step up to the plate to volunteer their time for chore services. The current Bluebills group can get a railing or ramp done in four hours or less, which allows them to move on quickly to other projects. All projects are up to code, including ADA requirements, Jones said. Volunteer John Breslin, a shipyard retiree, has
spent the last 13 years volunteering for Catholic Community Services. Some weeks he’ll have four or five clients who need him to install a grab bar in the bathroom or fix something around their home. Other times he won’t have calls for two or three weeks at a time, he said. But no matter when he gets the call, he’s raring to go. “To me, it’s a big deal to keep our older folks — which I am rapidly approaching upon — in their homes,” said Breslin. “I do whatever I can do to keep somebody in their home so they’re safe and empowered so they feel like a human being.” Breslin has done everything from electrical and plumbing to sheetrock and
Kenneth D Hughes 1938 - 2014 Kenneth D Hughes died peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday night,18 March 2014. Ken, the son of Charley and Blanche Hughes, was born in Pleasant Valley [Gorst],WA, in 1938. He attended South Kitsap High School, served in the US Navy,and was a Bremerton Firefighter for more than 33 years, retiring as BFD Deputy Chief in 1993. He also drove a truck for Bremerton Concrete and was a Security Guard at Kitsap Mall around his BFD shift schedule. Ken loved nothing more than to bring smiles to his family, friends and neighbors, often to the point of soft groans and rolled eyes. From a table in his garage, he greeted and engaged neighbors, dog-walkers, joggers, missionaries and door-todoor salespersons. Strangers were truly friends he’d not yet met. Ken never lost his first-responder mindset and would always drive from point A to point B, seldom hitting a stop sign or traffic light and never back-tracking. Ken had breakfast every Tuesday morning at the Burger King on Kitsap Way with his brothers Jimmy Hughes and Frank Burton. They were predeceased by their brother, Fred Hughes, whom they miss dearly. He is survived by his wife, Judith [White] Hughes; his daughter Melinda Hughes; son and daughter-in-law Mark and Leslie [Gibb] Hughes; step-daughter Chris King-Talley; 9 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and his ex-wife and the mother of his children, Linda [Jones] Hickey. He would be pleased to know that his friend Ron has arranged to finish his gardening and Paul is hauling away the trash, the puppy is on hold, and he is right: Birch trees are messy. He is truly missed. Ken will be honored at a memorial service at 1:00 p.m., Saturday 29 March 2014,at the Kitsap Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship, 4418 Perry Avenue NE, Bremerton. In lieu of flowers,donations may be made to the Rescue One Fund, Bremerton Fire Department, 911 Park Avenue, Bremerton, WA 98337. Please see the full obituary at http://www.tuellmckeebremerton.com

framing in homes. As for recipients having strangers in their home, Breslin has never come across an unkind or ungracious homeowner. “They’re really receptive to having somebody come out and help,” he said. “That’s all that we’re doing it for is to help. They know they need help, and they really want to stay in their home.” State funding hasn’t been kind to nonprofits, and one of the major cutbacks has been on grab bars, which help those who need assistance getting up and down, Jones said. The chore services aspect of Catholic Community Services started in 1981 “in response to cuts in services for elders by the state legislature,” states the Catholic Community Services website. “The state is not allowed any more to provide funding for any modifications in the bathroom,” Jones said. “We picked up that slack with the help of the Bluebills.” Because volunteers can only spend so much time providing services, any elder or people with disabilities are asked to call in advance for help. Many times the volunteers are tied up and may not be able to drive someone to a doctor’s appointment that same day, Jones said.
“We don’t have instant volunteer services,” she said. Services like laundry and minor home repair are available to those 60 and older, living on a fixed income who also have health or mobility limitations. Adults, ages 18 through 59, with temporary or permanent functional limitations are also eligible for services. For those who cannot volunteer their time, there are a variety of ways to donate to Catholic Community Services. Cash gifts, recurring gifts, inkind gifts (paper products, toiletries, clothing, etc.) and vehicle donations are all accepted. Breslin noted that anyone who wants to make a difference should give Catholic Community Services a call. “If you really want to be able to feel like you’ve contributed to the community, this is the way to do it,” he urged. “We all have to give a little bit back. We can’t continually just take all the time. This is a good opportunity to give a little bit back.” For more information on volunteering, contact Donna Jones, program coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-405-0072.

LIBRARY CONTINUED FROM A1
Greaves and Port Attorney Phil Best for almost six months to identify the scope of a possible partnership by which KRL could build a library on land the port owns in Old Town. That property was among the three options that KRL presented to the public Thursday night at a town meeting on the new library.” Brody said he was caught off guard by the port’s decision. Greaves said Monday that the decision was an economic one. “It’s unfortunate that we were meeting at the same time as the CKCC,” he said. “When we met we looked at figures presented to us by the port’s attorney and it became obvious that we would be losing a significant amount of income if we were to go forward with plans for a library on the property. We just came to the conclusion that it wasn’t in the best interest of the port to lose that income.” In all, Greaves estimated that the port would lose up to $6,000 a month from rental income to businesses that are

the neighborhood since 1960 and is concerned about what might eventually be located on the site, if the station is torn down. “My husband and I both were volunteers here,” she said. “This place was hopping every
BAUMAN CONTINUED FROM A1
Bauman is noted for taking part in the decision to move the ninth grade students up to the high schools beginning next year. She also is credited with “a renewed focus on teaching and learning and progress toward a literacy adoption,” states the district’s press release. The superintendent started in July of 2013, and came to
now located in that block. He said the library was only offering $1 a month for rent. “Even if we were to locate those businesses on a second story, above the library, we would be a year to 18 months without that income,” Greaves said. But library officials said that’s not true. “That assertion is not correct,” Brody said. “The port never began negotiations with us. We were never at the point to see what we were willing to pay and what terms we were willing to make.” Brody said during the preliminary talks, library officials had discussed giving the port the property where the current library sits, which is estimated to be valued at $470,000. KRL also was willing to sign the property where a library was to be built back over to the port if it ever stopped being used as a library. But all that seems to be for naught because port commissioners have made their decision that the short-term loss of income would not be worth the long-term gains. One business owner whose business would be displaced if the library had been built on the port property spoke out at
the meeting last Thursday. Elizabeth Barnes, owner of Elizabeth’s House of Wax, said she didn’t think it was the right location for the library. “If this was the site selected, six businesses would be eliminated,” she said. “Those businesses bring customers to Old Town, to the restaurants and other businesses. A library would not contribute to the economy.” Several others at the meeting, not knowing that the location would soon be taken off the table, thought it was just the right location. The property would be waterfront and they liked the idea that families could take children to the library, visit the nearby park, and enjoy the scenery. Of the locations that are still under consideration, the Central Kitsap Community Campus was favored by some who said it would be great to have a library within walking distance of the YMCA. They noted that plans for a performing arts center would create the campus that had been envisioned years ago. Others worried that with three public buildings on the campus, there would be parking issues. They said building the library at the Silverdale
United Methodist Church site on Ridgetop Boulevard made more sense because there was more room for parking. Brody said the KRL would like to build a 10,000 square foot building, all on one story to cut down on the need for more staff. The current library is about 5,000 square feet and has not increased in size since 1980. They will have to have from 35 to 40 parking spaces wherever the library is built. They need to have access to the latest fiber optics technology to support the computer systems needed in a new library and they would like to have it on or near a Kitsap Transit bus route. They hope to use natural lighting, have large windows and be on or near the Clear Creek Trail. Brody said while talks have taken place, there have not been any confirmed offers and the library has not entered into any contracts. What library officials want is to hear from the public before making a decision on the site for a new library. He said some previous suggestions included the Kitsap Mall, a new Greaves Way shopping center in the planning, the Jenne-Wright CK School District Administrative Center,
the current Silverdale Post Office and several other retail sites. But for various reasons none would work. “With the mall, the new owners want to rent it to retail at retail rates,” he said. “And the school district has told us that they have no surplus property and don’t plan to move out of Jenne-Wright.” What is clear, Brody said, is that when a decision on the site is made by the library’s board of directors, the community needs to come together and support the fundraising efforts for the library. A previous levy for a library failed in 2010 and Brody said the library doesn’t have funding in its budget to build a new Silverdale Library without cutting services at all of its other libraries. Just how much a new library will cost will depend on the particulars of its location, its size and its design. Central Kitsap County Commissioner Linda Streissguth was at the meeting last week and said she is committed to working with the Central Kitsap Community Council and the library to find the best location. She said there are challenges with the Central Kitsap Community Campus, including what to do about the
existing buildings. “Having a library on the campus has been a part of the vision since it was conceived,” she said. “But we need to address the C-STOCK building and the sheriff’s office. We need to look at the entire site and everything that is located there and create a multi-year plan.” Josh Hopp, board member of the C-STOCK theater, said they were interested in possibly co-locating with the library in a “more modest performing arts center.” He referred to plans by another group called the West Sound Performing Arts Center that wants to build a large theater on the community campus. Brody said the library will continue to take public comments for several weeks. He said the KRL board hopes to pick a location by June. To register comments, go to the library’s website www. krl.org, or www.surveymonkey.com/silverdalelibrarysite. Brody said the port property site on Lowell Street is still listed on the survey as an option and cannot be removed from the web tally.
Wednesday night when we were here for training. This station has seen a lot of life and I don’t want to see it closed.” The Konos and Vettleson agreed that part of the connection to the station is nostalgic. But they don’t think it’s in such bad shape. Neither does Gary Keenan, another Tracyton resident. “I want the district to make good, sound financial deci-
sions,” he said. “But the dollar figures that the district is throwing out seem way off. They’re saying the station needs a new septic system at $35,000 when this one isn’t even failing. I just want them to consider keeping it open for the volunteers as a place for them to train.” Keenan referred to a handout that the district had at the open house and the meeting following the tour. It listed the cost to upgrade the Tracyton station to today’s fire station standards as nearly $500,000.
Paul Anderson, repair and maintenance supervisor for the district, said the station has a number of major issues, according to a report from a structural engineer that studied the building. “We asked him what it would take to keep the building operational,” Anderson said. “There are a number of safety concerns, including that this building cannot be retrofitted for a seismic event.” He said the electrical system needs repairs and the building is settling which may mean
that in order to repair that, the septic system and drain field would have to be relocated. If there were to be any interior upgrades, it was suggested by the engineer that the fireplace and chimney be removed, that the floor and ceiling in one area be leveled (which would require checking both for asbestos) and that the kitchen be remodeled. “These seem like things that might not really be needed,” he said. “But the fact is that with the building settling like it is, we really don’t know what
problems we might encounter until we get in there.” Additionally, the parking lot needs to be repaved and that would trigger the need for storm water drainage to meet current codes. Keenan, however, disputed the settling issue. “This station was built by volunteers,” he said. “It’s always had that slope to it.”
the district with nearly 40 years in education, the last 29 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, where she was superintendent for five years. She was originally hired for one year, but late in 2013 agreed to stay on a second year through June 30, 2015. That time will now be filled by McVicker. It is anticipated that the board will begin a search for a permanent superintendent within the coming year.

Bremerton woman drives under influence with kids
possession of meth and reckless endangerment for driving with three children in the vehicle.
A 31-year-old Bremerton woman who was pulled over for speeding ended up being arrested for possession of meth and a controlled substance with no prescription. The Washington State Patrol trooper noted the driver had bloodshot eyes and a difficulty locating her license. As she dug through her purse, the trooper noticed several prescription bottles. She handed a few bottles over when asked, which contained a variety of mixed pills and a white crystal powder. Three teenage girls were also in the backseat and the driver admitted to using meth the previous day. A voluntary portable breath test of .123 was given after the woman performed poorly on the field sobriety tests, states a WSP statement of probable cause. The woman was arrested and booked on DUI,
Hitchhiker arrested after car he’s in crashes A Washington State Trooper looking for a collision came across a disabled vehicle. Upon contacting the occupants, he asked if they were involved in the collision. The pair told the trooper they had just run out of gas and were waiting for assistance. The trooper promised to be back after helping those in the collision. After being unable to locate the collision, the trooper returned to the site. While trying to help the driver, the trooper noted a man coming up from the bushes. He told the trooper he was trying to assist, and just needed a ride to a gas station to get the driver some gas. While driving to the gas station, the man advised that the couple in the car has crashed and that he had helped “free their car
from the bushes,” states the report. While the man was pumping gas, the store clerk motioned for the trooper to come inside. The clerk informed the trooper that the man pumping gas had stolen two packs of cigarettes and a pack of Band-Aids from the store earlier. Arriving back at the disabled vehicle, the trooper searched the man and discovered the items. The man told the trooper, “I told them I was going to come back and pay for them,” states the report. Despite declining questioning regarding the theft, the man offered information about the car crash. The couple offered him a ride from the Hilltop gas station. The couple in the car argued over having given him a ride, when “the male struck the female with a closed fist.” Both individuals punched each other when the vehicle ran off the roadway and became stuck, he said. After the man was arrested and booked for theft, other deputies were sent

to deliver gas and investigate the assault between the driver and passenger.
Suspect does ‘stupid things’ due to drugs, is arrested On March 22, a 21-year-old Bremerton man was wrestled to the ground and handcuffed by JC Penney’s loss prevention officers for stealing. According to a Kitsap County Sheriff ’s incident report, the male concealed three pieces of jewelry and women’s undergarments totaling $182 in his jacket. After walking out of the store, loss prevention contacted him and handcuffed him after he put up a fight. Loss prevention officers told the KCSO deputy they also located “suspected methamphetamine and some paraphernalia,” states the report. The suspect told the deputy he “has a bad drug problem and it makes him do stupid things,” states the report. The items stolen
Friday, March 28, 2014 were intended for his girlfriend. The suspect was transported to jail and booked for possession of methamphetamine and theft, third degree. All drug items tested positive for meth and were placed into evidence storage.
KCSO on the lookout for stabbing suspect Kitsap County Sheriff ’s Office is seeking the public’s help in searching for a 62-year-old transient man. Ivan W. Haynes, Jr. is wanted for questioning in connection with an assault that occurred at the Camelot Mobile Home park early Saturday morning. He reportedly lives in a motor home in the East Bremerton area. Deputies suspect he has shaved his beard and cut his hair. Deputies followed up an investigation that a domestic assault occurred at the park on Friday night. During the initial, unrelated investigation, one sub-
ject was arrested and booked into county jail for domestic violence assault. When deputies arrived, a female guest “at the same residence has just suffered a stabbing injury,” according to a KCSO press release. The victim, 49, is also a transient who frequents the area. She was transported to Harrison Hospital for treatment. According to the press release, Haynes has been identified as the suspect of the assault, but fled from his motor home. Haynes initially was on scene during the investigation, but he fled prior to law enforcement arrival due to outstanding arrest warrants. Upon returning, he got into an altercation with the 49-year-old woman before leaving again in a white 1983 Itasca motor home, license plate number ATK-0330. Haynes location is still unknown. Anyone with information is encouraged to call 911 or call Detective Nicole Menge at 360337-7117.

ID cards: Rite-of-passage for military brats For the average kid, preadolescence and the teen years are marked with many rites-of-passage: facial hair, deodorant, pimples, crushes, and braces. There is the experience of wearing pants that fit yesterday but are too short today. There are awkward bus rides and annoying parents. And there is the moment you realize going to school without combing your hair only works for 5-year-olds. Military kids have all these things, plus one more: getting a military identification card. As soon as a military dependent turns 10-years old, they are required to go to the nearest base, have a picture taken and receive their very first, laminated proof of identification. Sounds simple and ordinary—maybe even tedious. Unless you’re 10. Then it’s mind-blowing. “Me, with an ID card?” Suddenly, after just a short decade on this earth, you can fill your wallet with something else besides Monopoly money and trading cards. I remember getting my first ID card. Unfortunately, it was the morning after I busted open my brow in the middle of the night on the headboard of my bed. I have always walked and talked in my sleep, so it was not surprising that I would sit up in my bed and have a conversation with myself. What was surprising was when I laid back down and misjudged the distance between my pillow and the headboard. After a long night in the emergency room and several stitches later, I was back home waiting for my mom to take me to the base to get my ID card. I don’t remember why it was so urgent, why we had to go that day, when I had a black eye and dried blood in my hair, and I couldn’t take a shower or get the stitches wet. Maybe it was because filling out the insurance papers at the ER was complicated without an ID card, and Mom realized I needed my card… like, yesterday. My dad was stationed at NAS Oceana in Virginia Beach, Va., but in my memory, we were not on that base, which was so familiar to me. This is what getting your first ID card does to you: it changes an ordi-

in the eye, but the military isn’t ultra efficient when it comes to things like paperwork and records. Sometimes, a needle in the eye is an attractive alternative. The next morning, we drove to the base and parked in front of the Personnel building, which Ford noted was precariously close to the Recruiting one. It was 9:45 a.m. and Ford had to be back at school by 10:30 (the ID office is only open 7:30-
3:00, which are, of course, school hours. Convenient). Based on previous experience, I wasn’t hopeful we’d make it. (Have you ever gotten through the DMV in 45 minutes?) Then something incredible happened. We signed in, and before we could even sit down in the lobby, a nice man in fatigues took us to the office to start the paperwork. No waiting! Twenty minutes (20 minutes!) later, the boys had crossed a path paved
by many military BRATs— including their mom and dad—before them: they had ID cards. Except the boys’ path seemed too easy. On the way home I told them, “Back when I got my ID card, I had to walk two miles both ways in the snow, and I waited 15 hours in the lobby….” I’m not sure it really happened that way. But that’s how I remember it.

Kitsap author wins coveted Sci-Fi prize Through determination, Kingston’s Randy Henderson wins the Writers of the Future contest, lands a book deal By RICHARD D. OXLEY Kitsap Week
s the adage goes, if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. And then try again … and maybe once more … then repeat. One Kitsap author knows this maxim all too well. But persistence pays off. Randy Henderson has won the Writers of the Future contest, a competition aimed at amateur writers of speculative fiction. “I had submitted to the contest several times previous and received honorable mentions,” Henderson said. “Then I submitted one of my favorite stories, a story I knew in my bones was my best in every way. I knew it was going to win.” “Shows how much I know,” he added. “That one didn’t even get an honorable mention. I pouted and didn’t submit to them for a while. Then, as I was nearing the point where I would no longer be eligible to submit to Writers of the Future, I decided to give it one last shot. I am still amazed and grateful that I won.” That last shot was a story titled “Memories Bleed Beneath the Mask,” and it proved to be Henderson’s ticket to Los Angeles to rub elbows with science fiction elite. Henderson, a Kingstonbased science fiction author, is among 12 writers to win the annual Writers of the Future contest. Winners will be honored at an awards ceremony in Los Angeles at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre on April 13. The contest is judged by sci-fi heavyweight writers, such as Orson Scott Card, many of whom Henderson will have access to during the ceremony. “The event is amazing,” said Carmen Bartolo of the Writers of the Future contest. “It’s kind of a lavish production. It’s literally an Oscar’s style production. “Randy and other winners [are] going to be
coming to Los Angeles a week before the event and will go through a series of workshops with these professional writers,” Bartolo said. “And they’ll get the inside skinny on the publishing business.” The contest was founded by sci-fi writer L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 and has since been a premier contest for amateur writers of speculative fiction. Today, the contest is accompanied by the Illustrators of the Future contest, which provides the same honor to amateur artists. Henderson’s “Memories Bleed Beneath the Mask” will be included in the 30th volume of the Writers of the Future anthology, along with other winning entries. The story, while speculative, was sourced from the author’s own experiences. “The idea came from watching watching members of another family hovering around a dying matriarch as they passiveaggressively argued over her valuables and jockeyed for her position in the family hierarchy,” Henderson said. “I wondered, what if the main thing they were fighting over, the most valuable possession of their dying family member that one of them could actually inherit, was the person’s memories, and the skills and knowledge those memories bestow? That was where I started, and I was a bit surprised at where it went and how it ended.” Henderson’s experience with the writing scene echoes what other authors relate as the nature of the game: rejection. “Writing is a brutal venture,” Henderson said. “You write a story, truly believe in it, submit it to magazine after magazine, and get rejected by all. If you are serious about being a writer, you do this a lot. And then, unexpectedly, you get accepted for publication. There is no rhyme or reason to it, no way to predict it. Even the pros still get rejections.” It was a long road
Randy Henderson is among 12 winners of the 2014 Writers of the Future contest. His story, “Memories Bleed Beneath the Mask,” earned him the honor. His first book in a series, “The Finn Fancy Necromancy,” is slated to be published in 2015.

through rejection to publication for Henderson. Writing has been a lifelong passion he carried from his youth in Portland, Ore, through a variety of vocations such as factory boat worker in Alaska, weight loss counselor, and “writing tax sob stories for CPA clients.” “My first paid fiction,” Henderson jokes. But he “got serious” about writing in 2008. Henderson formed the Kitsap County Writers Group in Bremerton. In 2009, he attended a workshop at Clarion West, a speculative writers group based in Seattle. “That was a big turning point for me, if nothing else in terms of how seriously I applied myself on a daily basis to the work and the craft of writing,” he said. Persistence paid off. Henderson’s first book series is expected to hit book stores in February 2015. A humorous urban fantasy, the first in the series is titled “Finn Fancy Necromancy.” “Unlike most urban fantasy that is centered around a major city, my series is centered around Port Townsend, Wash.,” Henderson said. “And
since Finn was exiled from our world as a teenager in 1986 and is returning in 2011 as an adult, there is quite a bit of ’80s pop-cultural humor, as well as commentary on what has changed both in the world and himself. “There’s also some romance, of course, and Sasquatch mercenaries, evil PTA witches, a were-Elvis, and mobster gnomes,” he said. “Because what novel would be complete without those?” The book series and the award are nice cherries on top of years of effort. They are also a testament to Henderson’s advice to other aspiring writers. “To all those struggling to be writers, the secret is just to keep writing new stories, edit them, and submit them
for publication over and over. And over,” he said. “I have stories that to this day I believe are my best stories, my most emotionally true and conceptually interesting stories, that have been rejected by everyone, and stories that I wrote as a lark that were then published. “Sometimes it has to do with the quality of the story, or of the story’s ending,” he added. “But just as often it has to do with what stories the magazine has already purchased, or the editor’s personal tastes, or possibly their low blood sugar.” Henderson’s writing, and other news on his soon-to-be published work, can be found on his website, www.randyhenderson.com.

aroundkitsap Articles from neighboring Kitsap communities. For more news, read these local newspapers online. Bainbridge island Review Playground built in memory of island boy: By the time he was 1, Owen Marshall was diagnosed with quad-spastic cerebral palsy, cortical visual impairment and epilepsy. He had little voluntary control over his extremities and, because of abnormalities in his brain, had reduced vision. For several months in that first year, tiny Owen was also given injections to try to control more than 120 seizures a day. As he got older, play time for Owen didn’t mean playing in the mud or rolling down a hill at a neighborhood playground. Instead he spent time in his family’s garden under a big rainbow umbrella. He liked the bright colors because they were what he could see best. He had a net swing at home too. Like most kids, Owen loved it. Owen passed away five months ago at the age of 6. With his disabilities, he never had the chance to play with his feet sunk low in the grass, or to kick up sand with other kids at the playground. For other children like him on Bainbridge Island and across Kitsap County, though, that exclusion will soon change. “I knew from the perspective of a parent how I wished that we had access,” said Stacy Marshall, Owen’s mother. The Marshalls turned their grief into a playground project. Just days after their son’s passing, they heard of an inclusive playground in Portland called Harper’s Playground. The swing set, for example, included carseat-like swings with back support and high barriers to keep children from falling out. They were also big enough for an adult to sit in just as easily as a 5-year-old. By the time the Marshalls held Owen’s memorial on Nov. 2, the family had an idea of what his memorial fund would look like and, from there, it took a life of its own. In February, the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District’s board of commissioners
unanimously approved 13,000 square feet at Rotary Park to be dedicated to the construction of an inclusive playground. Shortly thereafter, the board approved the name “Owen’s Playground at Rotary Park” and the project landed partnerships with the Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation and the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island. Construction is expected to begin by fall. Like Harper’s Playground, the design will provide smooth, safe and accessible surfaces throughout the playground and clear sight lines so that caregivers can watch as the children play. It will include multi-sensory play opportunities where children will experience different scents, textures, sounds and sights — all of which are important to children with sensory processing disorders. The playground may include features like a sensory plant garden, a water and sand play area or adaptive play equipment like the swing set found at Harper’s Playground. “I am not the same person that I was,” Marshall said. “He helped open my mind to all populations of people.” She added, “Owen was so much more than his disabilities.” For more information or to donate to the construction of Owen’s Playground, visit www.owensplayground.org. — BainbridgeReview.com
Bremerton Patriot Teen competes at Poetry Out Loud: When Anna Flood was in the seventh grade, her English teacher suggested that she try reading and performing poetry. “She told me she thought it was right up my alley,” said Anna, a junior at Crosspoint Academy in Silverdale. “So I decided I’d try it.” Five years and a lot of work later, Anna was the only student from Kitsap County to qualify for the Poetry Out Loud state tournament held recently in Tacoma. Although she didn’t qualify for the national tournament, Anna said the experience was great preparation for next year, when, as a senior, she’s hopes to win the state
tournament. Her performance of three poems — “Empty Dance Shoes,” “A Locked House,” and Emily Dickinson’s “I Felt a Funeral in my Brain” — was flawless, according to written comments by the judges. But she thinks she may have stumbled on a word or two somewhere. Anna is already looking at poems for next year’s competition. She plans to work with her theater teacher during summer and fall. — BremertonPatriot.com
Central Kitsap Reporter Students raise and release salmon: This week, students across Kitsap County said goodbye to salmon they’ve been raising for the last few months in classroom tanks. As part of the “Salmon in the Classroom” program through the Clear Creek Trail Task Force, various classrooms raised salmon eggs in tanks until the fish could be released into streams as fry. On March 20, Clear Creek Elementary fourth-graders went in pairs with kindergarten buddies to release their salmon into the stream. Ainara Singleton, 9, said that studying salmon in a variety of ways — including dissection — was “really cool.” Ainara named her fish Pat after Pat Kirschbaum, an educator and outreach coordinator with the Clear Creek Trail. Since September, the students have been taught in a variety of mediums about the fish, Bromley said. In October, they visited Grover Creek Fish Hatchery to see the early stages of salmon that would later be in their classroom. In January, students received 100 eggs to observe and study prior to the release date on the first day of spring. Additionally, students made beaded salmon necklaces and played a game to learn the life cycle events inside classrooms while other students were outside releasing salmon. Older students also put on a salmon sock puppet play to better explain the life cycles to other students. To top off the day, student pairs paraded around the school in handmade paper salmon costumes. — CentralKitsapReporter. com See Kitsap, Page 5

North Kitsap Herald Poulsbo quintuplets turn 8: In the event you stop in at the Vintage Housewife on Front Street, the answer to your question is, “Yes, they do all belong to Courtnee.” Mike and Courtnee Stevenson’s quintuplets turn 8 on March 30. As Western Washington’s first set of quintuplets, the children are accustomed to attention; they’ve been the subject of news stories and a local wall calendar, and in 2011 were guests on KING-5 TV’s New Day Northwest. The quintuplets — Aniston, Belle, Camilee, Scarlett and Weston — pursue their individual interests. They are in different classes at school and enjoy a variety of afterschool activities: gymnastics, ballet and hockey. You might see the children and their 11-year-old sister Lilli at the Vintage Housewife in Poulsbo, which their mom co-owns. Lilli likes to help out at the cash register and the children create refrigerator magnets to sell. Mom puts their earnings into a savings account. What will the quintuplets do for their birthday? They will have their first slumber party. Each girl has invited two friends, while brother Weston made the case to his mom that he should be
able to invite three friends. So, yes, on their birthday, the Stevenson home will be a household of 16 children. — NorthKitsapHerald.com

Port Orchard Independent Memorial signs posted: Two roadside memorial signs were installed March 12 on Baby Doll Road at the site where two teenage girls — including one from South Kitsap — were killed in a Dec. 16 car accident. The signs were placed in memory of Rebekah Barrett and Shanaia Bennett, who were killed Dec. 16 in an alleged street race with Rebekah’s boyfriend, said Marsha Masters, Kitsap County Traffic Safety-Target Zero manager. Barrett, 18, of South Kitsap, and Bennett, 17, of Gig Harbor, died after the Toyota Camry that Barrett was driving skidded off the roadway and hit a tree. Another 17-year-old girl was injured in the crash. Barrett was racing a 1997 Toyota pickup, driven by her boyfriend Robert A. Rundquist, 20, of South Kitsap, according a police report. Rundquist was charged with two counts of vehicular homicide in Kitsap County Superior Court. The Baby Doll Road was closed for about an hour for the memorial event. — PortOrchardIndependent.com

Spring season brings birds within view
Left, a red-breasted sapsucker perches on a tree. Right, an Anna’s hummingbird visits a flower. Don Willott / Janine Schutt
Annual migrations bring parade of bird-spotting opportunities F
or five years, my wife and I traveled in our motorhome for up to 11 months at a time, planning our entire timetable around bird watching. We called ourselves “Geritol gypsies.” We interspersed visits to birding hotspots with stops along the way to visit family and friends. One year our bird-watching forays took us all the way from Belize to the Arctic Circle. Along the way we saw some amazing birds. For peak bird watching, location and timing is key. As retirees, we had the luxury of timing our travels so we could be in the right places at the right time. You’d think we’d be too jaded by now to appreciate all-season birding

close to home; but we still get excited when the first Rufous Hummingbird of the season shows up at our feeder in March. For hard-core birders, there is nothing like the thrill of watching waves of warblers and spring migrants en route to their nesting grounds in the Arctic tundra and boreal forests of North America. The arrival of spring and its symphony of sounds and flowering shrubs is mixed with wistful good byes to our departing loons, grebes, scoters and other aquatic birds as they transform
themselves into breeding splendor for their courting rituals further north. For those tuned in to the music, spring is when the birds find their voices and fill the air with song. Even the plainest plumages and simplest songs stir the hearts of their female counterparts. Of course, their lyrical choruses and dazzling displays are not for us, but for the mates they hope to woo and the rivals they hope to best. But drab is the human spirit that doesn’t thrill to these wonderful sounds and vivacious displays. As refugees from the East Coast, we miss the spring spectacle as dozens of species of warblers and song birds wing their way north to the bug-rich

come to Washington, they are awed and thrilled by sights we take for granted. It works both ways, so we feel especially blessed to have lived on both coasts and birded so many special places — from Maine to California, and Belize to the Arctic Circle. While folks in the southern United States tout their great winter bird-
forests of northern New England and Canada. But the West Coast has its own unique charms and wildlife specialties that we envied when we lived on the other coast. During our motor-rambling days we circled the country several times and found that every region has its own special treasures. When East Coast visitors
ing, those in the Pacific Northwest live in the middle of a coastal flyway that hosts massive annual shifts in bird populations. Spring and fall migrations provide an endless parade of opportunities for those who love birds and savor their special seat at this annual feast for the eyes and ears.

Continued from page 1 to get out of the house and dance to some music,” she said. “The kids get their faces painted and do some crafts. Have fun in your community.” This year, Windermere is adding a crafts feature for kids. Poole said that the line for face painting got pretty long in the past, and she hopes this will spread out the demand. “There’s kite book marks, and a kite foam craft that they can hang on a wall,” Poole said. The Washington Kitefliers Association will also be present to guide people through the process of making their own kites.
“It’s totally free, other than the food,” Poole said of the festival, noting that there will be tacos, hot dogs, hot cocoa and cookies for sale. Kites of all shapes and sizes, flown by the young and young-at-heart, grace the skies over the Kingston waterfront. Poole said that it’s a community event for all. In the end, it’s all about community fun. “We’ve had someone show up dressed as Peter Pan before. It’s lots of fun,” Poole said. “People dance. They don’t have to fly a kite. People picnic and watch the kites.” The event has grown in popularity in the seven years since taking flight in Kingston. Poole said that the last couple of years
have been a particular success. “The last couple years, it’s been fabulous,” she said. “The numbers keep growing. At least 150, maybe 200 (people) throughout the day. It’s becoming more and more popular. “I have people calling me about it from down south (in Washington) or over in Seattle and companies that I’ve never heard of that do marketing for kites,” Poole added. “So, it’s like it is becoming a big thing.” Keep an eye out for donation jars while launching kites in Kingston this weekend. The event also uses its visibility to raise money for the Kingston Food Bank.

Petite Sirah steps into Northwest vineyards O
ne of the most robust red wines you’re likely to run across is Petite Sirah. Grown primarily in California, Petite Sirah is a French variety that is a cross of Syrah and Peloursin, an obscure grape. It was discovered in the 1860s by botanist François Durif. The grape can go by “Petite Sirah” or “Durif.” Petite Sirah gets its name because the actual grapes are small, even though the resulting wine tends to be big, bold and tannic. Because of this, Petite Sirahs tend to be among the most age-worthy wines produced. Petite Sirah can be found in most areas of California, particularly Napa, Sonoma, the Sierra Foothills and Lodi. As recently as a decade ago, it would have been difficult to find a Petite Sirah from the Pacific Northwest. Today, at least 20 different examples are made, and the variety is quickly gaining fans amid wine lovers and winemakers alike. Here are a few suggestions for food pairings with Petite Sirah: roasted or grilled red meats, venison, barbecued pork, rack of lamb, lentil casserole, carne asada, meatloaf, lasagna or a meat-laden pizza. Looking to try a Northwest Petite Sirah? Here are a few examples we’ve tried recently. All are made in small amounts, so ask at your favorite wine merchant or contact the wineries directly. Milbrandt Vineyards 2010 Vineyard Series Petite Sirah, Wahluke Slope, $28: This opens with big, dark aromas of chocolate cake, espresso, black licorice and boysenberry.

Fraser Vineyard 2011 Petite Sirah, Snake River Valley, $30: There are a handful of Petite Sirah producers in Idaho, and this begins with a big, bold, thick, dark red with aromas of caramel, molasses, plum and blackberry. On the palate, it’s loaded with flavors of plum, blackberry, boysenberry, coffee, black pepper and tobacco.

The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the sellerâ€™s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord.
