t’s the end of the world as we know it. No government. No help is coming. We’re all on our own, fending and providing for ourselves. And — oh, yeah — zombies are roaming the land. What do you do? Ask a Boy Scout. “Kids find it cool,” said Sean Neal, director of the Boy Scouts Sinclair District. “We take all those survival skills that we normally teach to scouts,” he said. “Instead of saying, ‘If you find yourself in the woods after a plane crash,’

we say, ‘If you find yourself in the woods after a zombie apocalypse.’ ” The Boy Scouts will impart their essential post-civilization knowledge at the Port Orchard Farmers Market on May 31. “We are teaching some basic first aid stuff and essential things they should have when they are out,” Neal said. “We are gonna attempt to bring enough hands-on demonstrations, and set up in and around our booth, and have a shelter.” See SCOUTS, Page 9

The Boy Scouts can help you prepare for the post-zombie apocalypse world with their handy survival skills. A zombie outbreak hit Kitsap in 2009 when “Zombies of Mass Destruction” was filmed in Port Gamble. Contributed

OULSBO — It’s taken some time for Barbara Rhoe to decide to call it quits. After a few personal events in her life, Rhoe, 70, decided to keep running The Farm Montessori preschool and kindergarten. She would know when it would be time to retire. “I thought, well, it will sort of come to me organically,” she said.

Following the retirement of her business partner, Marie Elizabeth Cable, in 2008, she continued to run the Montessori school. As the school year wrapped up, though, Rhoe decided it was time to start a new chapter in her life. She will retire and move to downtown Seattle. “My life is going to change dramatically,” she said. Rhoe lived and worked on Clear Creek Road for more than 30 years. The property she and her late

husband lived on is adjacent to the school. During her time at The Farm, Rhoe has taught multiple generations of students. She is now teaching the children of former students.

BREMERTON — Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent wants to engage Sen. Patty Murray and Rep. Derek Kilmer in conversation about housing a veterans hospital at Harrison Medical Center Bremerton when Harrison moves its acute care services to Silverdale. The move is expected to happen in the next three to four years, Harrison President and CEO Scott Bosch announced May 23. Bosch said Harrison’s board of directors is still evaluating what outpatient services will continue to be offered in Bremerton. “The board is not willing to abandon Bremerton,” Bosch said. “We are not going to leave Bremerton. We are going to be here in a significant way.” What that presence will look like is not yet clear, but it could include some urgent care services, wellness programs and medical specialists. Lent, who spoke privately with Bosch ahead of the announcement, said she was shocked by See harrison, Page A2
