Annual Chimes & Lights festival this weekend BY BOB SMITH Kitsap News Group


lthough Kitsap County has yet to receive measurable amounts of snowfall this fall — just an allotment of rain and gray clouds — Santa Claus realizes the seasonal show must go on. After all, in just three short weeks, Santa and his crew of elves and herd of reindeer have the gargantuan task of delivering toys to good boys COVER and girls around the world. So, to get a STORY little practice under his large belt, the jolly ol’ elf will climb aboard a 1942 fire truck with lights ablaze and sirens wailing Dec. 2 for his annual appearance at Port Orchard’s Festival of Chimes & Lights. The festival along Bay Street is in its 19th year. It’s become part of the Port Orchard landscape in December — lights strung on downtown buildings, boats in the marina, and on trees and bushes. Wreaths are hung on business doors and windows are frosted, emblazoned in splashes of red, white and green paint. The festival will offer residents and visitors of all ages a Christmas season favorite. For children, it’s Santa and the “Pooch and Purr” parade and costume event. For adults and families, it’s the Jingle Bell Run for Arthritis. And for everyone, it’s holiday music by the South Kitsap High School marching band, culminating with the lighting of the community Christmas tree in front of Port Orchard City Hall. The Pooch and Purr parade and costume event was initially crossed off the list of festival activities this year, event organizer Cindy Lucarelli said, because it lacked a sponsor. “We’ve had a couple of sponsors step up to the plate to bring it back,” she said. “I think it’s going to be bigger and better.” Those sponsors — Cookie’s Pet Corner and Wash, and Woodside Animal Hospital — made it possible for the event to return by donating prizes and under-

writing the event costs. “I consider them to be local heroes for bringing Pooch and Purrs back,” Lucarelli said. Dick Vlist, longtime Port Orchard community member and owner of an auto dealership on Bay Street, will be the honorary Christmas tree lighter this year. At about 5:20 p.m. Saturday, Vlist will flip the switch to light up the tall tree that was donated by South Kitsap’s Saints Car Club. Throughout the day and evening, festival attendees can experience a “Christmas Lane” tradition on the waterfront: decorated and lighted boats and yachts at the Port Orchard Marina. The marina and Sinclair Inlet Yacht Club jointly host the yearly event. Those looking to get out of the predicted drizzle can step into the Dragonfly Cinema on Bay Street, which will offer free showings of the holiday classic “Elf” throughout the afternoon and evening. Show times begin at 11:30 a.m., with the final showing starting at 7 p.m. Another indoor event will be hosted by the Port Orchard Library, just off Bay Street next to the downtown waterfront. Librarian Kathleen Wilson once again will have kids’ crafts stations inside the library from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The featured craft: a pine cone gnome ornament. At 3 p.m., Mary Shaver’s Marionettes will perform “The Shoemaker and the Elves” at the library. Live music will be played at the library throughout the day until its 7 p.m. closing. In between the library’s festival events, “treats and greets” will be shared with visitors, Wilson said.

More choir!

Complementing the instrumental sounds of the South Kitsap High marching band will be vocal accompaniment — and lots of it. “We’ve added another choir this year,” Lucarelli said. “That’s a lot of music, so we’ll be starting it a lot earlier. It’s really been a lot of fun because these are pretty large groups and they bring down grandma and grandpa and other family members, who brave the weather and watch the performances.”

Holiday decor adorns a boat in the bay. The lighted boats are sponsored by the Port Orchard Yacht Club. Bob Smith | Kitsap News Group

Moon-walking, a black hole and the holidays STARS ABOVE KITSAP



nce you’ve gone as deep as you can go, you want to go as high as you can fly. Such is the pendulum swing from Scorpio to Sagittarius. Sagittarius begins the Holiday Season with its perfect expression — thanks giving — all about that gratitude, abundance, expansion and lightness of being! Scorpio may guide us through dark winter eves but fiery Sagittarius says, “In the dark, WE will be the Light!” Bring out the candles and holiday trees with twinkling strings of light, hope and faith. ‘Tis the joyous season! The full moon (Dec. 3 at 7:46 a.m. PST) of Gemini, the most logical of signs, arrives with Mercury moon-walking backwards for three weeks (Dec. 2-22). Oh, yeah! Mercury,

the emotional moon’s ruler, struts retrograde right through the middle of holiday hysteria. Crank up the drama, folks! Wise women will rush to get as much holiday errands and on-line shopping out of the way posthaste! Stock the freezer and pantry, buy and hide the gifts and be ready to implement Plan B, or C (or M) at a moment’s notice. If we can only remember that flexibility and humor can see us through many muddles ahead. Even the Galactic Center of our universe gets into the action. It’s gigantic black hole that gobbles up whatever comes near. So toss in our regrets, sins, crimes and misdemeanors released in Scorpio and let us fly free. Magical and addictive Neptune ushers in a spiritual advent season that prepares us for the Light of Consciousness to be reborn in our spacious hearts. Go for the magical and watch the booze. It’s extra woozy this year! Until then the tone of this celebratory month is to eat, drink, spend and be merry as we celebrate the coming of Light — in us, to us and through us — at Winter Solstice.

Poets will read from ‘Poems for Las Vegas’ Dec. 2 at Poulsbohemian POULSBO — Poets will read their works from the book, “Poems for Las Vegas,” beginning at 7 p.m. Dec. 2 at the Poulsbohemian Coffeehouse. The evening will include a book signing and will be followed by an open mic. Kitsap Weekly asked area poets to write some words that might provide comfort or help readers process the tragedy and horror of the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas. One poet, Diane Walker, wrote a couplet and a haiku, adding, “But really, there are no words for the ache in our hearts.” Twenty poets contributed writings that were pub-

lished in two consecutive editions of Kitsap Weekly. The poems were then published as a book by Kitsap Publishing; all royalties are being donated to a fund established for the victims and their families. The book is available at local bookstores and through The youngest contributor, Aliona Roman, wrote this poem: The world didn’t seem to stop to me. Even as my mother blared CNN from our living room on the second of October, I couldn’t feel feelings for hours. Nothing but numbness,

while hours before hundreds felt Confusion and fear. The world stopped turning for them. For the mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters. It was a bang, Cut off by screams of concert goers That were heard throughout the streets of Sin City that night. The world continued that morning. It was with silence That consumes everything. Numb and still, My world continued to turn.

valuable of all is you making shared experiences. Make time for bonding and building memories. Invest in you and them. It’s the gold of life. Gemini, friends are knocking on your door. They want to know you, and funny as they get to know you, you come to know yourself better. Let them in. Let logic dwindle and magic happen. You are ready for something more than ordinary and easy. Rewrite your relationship story. Cancer, your everyday schedule is loaded but your heart and soul needs, wants, must find the peace and quiet of the season. Lighten your load because Mercury is not your friend in its retrograde. You are looking for a more expansive box. Changed perceptions help you rewrite visions for yourself. Leo, party, glitter and glow. Touch base with everyone you know. This season brings out your showy, creative sparkle so don’t miss an opportunity to show up. You never know who you will meet. The summer eclipses re-ignited your sense of yourself these days, so anything is possible. Virgo, work, home

and a refreshed romantic twinkle with your honey makes the Holidays merry, bright. Mercury retrograde puts you behind the control curve and you hate that. It’s OK, Mercury is just messing with you so lighten up, laugh and find the magic. Libra, it’s a heady mix of inspiration and everyday routines. Notice the exotic, far-out and unexpected in your own neighborhood. Visit the specialty grocery. Talk to the man standing outside his shop. Mix it up right where you are. Fabulous! Go after your wildest desires and expect magic! Scorpio, invest in yourself, invest in your partner and sit tight. You know something is coming. You can feel the sparkle in the air. You have a year of opportunities, so yes it’s coming. Be sure to pick the golden ticket that fits your wildest hopes and dreams. Oh, yeah! — Suzanne O’Clair is a practicing astrologer of 40 years.

‘Writing on the Landscape’ helps with writer’s block BOOKENDS The local literary scene with Donna Lee Anderson


riters use all kinds of ways to help themselves get past that dreaded writer’s block which seems to afflict us all. Now there is a book by Jennifer J. Wilhoit about this problem. “Writing on the Landscape” addresses ways to help writers get back on track. Wilhoit suggests ways to relax your inner voice so that you, the writer, can get back to being creative. But these practices, as she calls them, can apply to everyone’s life. Have you ever had a day so stressful that you’d like to just stop the day and start over with

a new one? People who have pets find just cuddling or petting their dog or cat can be cathartic. Or, what about the feeling of rubbing your hand on the top of newly mown grass? The smell and feel of the grass passing along your palm can be immensely soothing. These are the kinds of practices she reminds us of that can help so much. They are not complicated and are easily-found remedies. This book has other suggestions of things that can soothe the sad or troubled thoughts and get oneself back to being more positive, calm and productive. This has been called a “nature-fueled philosophy” — a way that can give “[the] wholeness we feel when [we] engage in a simple, easy practice,” like those that are in her book. Here, on the Kitsap Peninsula, we are so lucky to have walking trails that will lead us by the water’s edge of

Jennifer J. Wilhoit’s book “Writing on the Landscape” aims to help writers with writer’s block.

the Puget Sound or the Hood Canal or even Buck Lake. There are also thick tree-covered trails, or hikes across landscapes that afford views of the mountains. All of these paths could start the happy and creative juices working, get our souls out of the doldrums and bring us back to our happy place. “Writing on the Landscape” has many suggestions of ways to remind us that the earth is here for us to appreciate and love. This is a very uplifting book for everyone to read. Wilhoit will be discussing her book at several places locally in the coming months. Here’s her schedule: • 2 p.m. Dec. 9, reading and book signing at Barnes & Noble, Silverdale. • 2 p.m. Jan. 7, a reading and signing at Liberty Bay Books, Poulsbo. • 7 p.m. Jan. 11, a reading and signing Eagle Harbor Books, Bainbridge Island.

t might be said that Robert Smasne was born to be a Yakima Valley winemaker. He was raised north of the town of Grandview, where his folks grew juice grapes. Next door was another vineyard, and young Robert snuck through the fence and noticed those grapes tasted different than the sweet juice grapes his parents grew. That piqued his curiosity and ultimately led to him pursue a career in winemaking. Today, he works with an astonishing 25 grape varieties. That vineyard next to his folks’ place was none other than Boushey, among the best in Washington. And he now buys award-winning grapes from Dick Boushey. After graduating from Washington State University in Pullman, he worked in wineries in the Yakima Valley, and in Woodinville and Walla Walla. And he launched his own brand in Grandview. Two years ago, he teamed up with another valley winery owner — the Tudor family — to purchase the shuttered Olsen Estates winery in Prosser. It now serves as the County Line tasting room in the Vintners Village, which is where the winemaking takes place. Wine lovers can enjoy lunch there, too. The Tudors now own historic Otis Vineyard, home to Cabernet Sauvignon vines that date to the 1950s, making them among the state’s oldest. In addition to Tudor, Smasne also crafts the wines for Northwest Cellars in Kirkland. At the recent Tri-Cities Wine Festival, Smasne amassed nine gold medals, further cementing his reputation as one of the state’s most talented winemakers. We recently tasted through Smasne’s newest releases, available at the tasting rooms in Prosser and Woodinville. They also are worth asking for at your favorite wine merchant. Smasne Cellars 2015

Bird watchers out for the annual count on Dec. 16 KITSAP BIRDING By GENE BULLOCK


ollowing a 118-yearold Audubon holiday tradition, scores of Kitsap bird watchers will be spending two full days in December counting birds. The annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is the longest-running bird census on the planet. Some 77,000 volunteers take part in more than 2,500 count circles. These citizen scientists collect data used by scientists to monitor bird population trends and track the northward shift in their winter ranges owing to changes in the climate. Kitsap Audubon has been sponsoring CBCs in Kitsap County for 45 years. Starting this year, however, Kitsap Audubon is recruiting volunteers for two count circles, having revived one in North Kitsap that has been dormant for 18 years. Every

CBC circle is 15 miles in diameter. The traditional Kitsap County CBC will take place on Saturday, Dec. 16, and the newly activated North Kitsap CBC will take place on Dec. 30. There will also be a CBC warmup and orientation on Dec. 9, starting at 9 a.m. at Point No Point in Hansville. The orientation lets bird watchers new to the CBC meet some of the field team leaders and learn how it works and what’s involved. Field teams are led by experienced birders; but all skill levels are welcome. Anyone can help spot, count and record sightings. The CBC is an enjoyable way to perform valuable citizen science, while improving your birding skills. Leaders enjoy sharing their passion, knowledge and skills with beginners. One caveat, however, is that the rigors and demands of winter CBCs make them unsuitable for younger children with short attention spans. The demands of a CBC leave leaders little time for covering all the necessary locations, so these are not leisurely family-oriented outings. Kitsap Audubon

Kitsap Audubon Field Group at Point No Point in Hansville at a previous bird count. offers other family-oriented opportunities when the weather is more amicable. CBCs also welcomes backyard bird watchers who, for one reason or another, are not up to tromping around with a field team, although backyard birders must live within the circle. Backyard birders simply spend that day tallying

the birds in their own backyards and reporting their results to Janine Schutt, who coordinates this effort. But be sure to contact her in advance for instructions. Email Janine at (preferred), or call her at

360-839-4446. Those interested in joining either or both Kitsap Audubon CBC circles should contact the field team leader directly. They are listed in the Kitsap Audubon December Kingfisher newsletter,

A gray male harbor seal peers out of the water. Nancy Sefton photo a bleating noise that sounds a lot like “Mama!” For an air-breathing animal, our local seals are amazing; they can dive to 1,500 feet and stay there for 40 minutes. Sleep in the water? No problem. And they’re not choosy when it comes to a meal: sole, flounder, sculpin, hake, cod, herring, even the occasional octopus and squid are always on the menu. As a side dish, fresh water fare isn’t out of bounds; a seal may swim upriver over 100 miles to feast on salmon! (Even the occasional duck isn’t unheard of.) The males above were fighting over females, of course; these skirmishes can last up to 4 hours, and only the winners may mate. But males initially get together (temporarily of course) and make attractive sounds (like a very bad barbershop quartet)in order to attract females to the area before the fighting begins. In my scuba diving days I had an amazing expe-

rience with local seals. I was hanging in a kelp forest and these playful amphibians were pirouetting all around me among the seaweeds like slightly obese ballerinas. One female seemed to take a particular interest in me and approached very closely. Soon, we were eye to eye, her whiskers practically brushing the glass of my diver’s mask. Her stare was hypnotic. Perfectly weighted for this depth, I simply froze in a sitting position. Then, I felt a light pressure and looked down. The seal had placed one flipper against my knee. I was stunned. Was she stabilizing herself in the slight current, or was she trying to make sure I was real? I’d like to think she was purposely establishing a moment of rare contact between creatures from two different worlds, but then, I’m a dreamer. Those huge, shining dark eyes are fixed in my memory banks to this day, and I always see (forgive

y previous column took us to the distant past, when an ice sheet covered our region and ultimately gave us our wonderful waterways. So now, let’s meet a species that’s comfortable IN our waters, as well as ABOVE them. I was sitting quietly in my kayak, enjoying the scenery off the Kitsap Peninsula’s north end, when just yards in front of me the calm water erupted in clouds of flying froth. A surfacing sub? Thankfully no. Two gray, glistening dome-like shapes emerged, and suddenly I was watching a pair of male harbor seals going at it, tooth and flipper. Between open-mouthed lunges, they rolled and thrashed; the water around them boiled, close enough to rock my kayak. One combatant surfaced with a bloody wound on his forehead, where his adversary’s teeth had found their mark. The injured seal, using discretion no doubt born of experience, barked one last time and dove. The victor looked around calmly and snuffled: “Well, another rival taken care of! Now, where was I?” All this violence, associated with the breeding season, isn’t the norm when we’re observing harbor seals. If they’re not dolphin-diving in search of lunch, they’re usually snoozing on local docks and breakwaters, draped over logs and hard to distinguish from fur-covered flour sacks. Like raccoons, they’ve adapted well to urban life. The males reach five to six feet in length (harbor seals are the smallest of the pinnipeds, seals without ear flaps). Not at all choosy when it comes to their habitat, these seals are at home in warm and cold water alike, having a broad range from Baja California to the Arctic. A pup can swim at birth, and often rides on its mother’s back when tired. It makes
