Children's author Kirk Werner to sign books at Poulsbo’s Peninsula Outfitters

  • Dec 15, 2009 at 1:00PM updated at 5:07PM

It’s a quick flick of the wrist, with maybe a twist, and firm placement of the thumb. This is not a suggestion for your Wii controller. It’s a familiar motion to author Kirk Werner. To him, fly fishing isn’t an activity. “It’s kind of an obsession,” he said. The Duvall, Wash.-based designer and illustrator will sign book copies and swap fish tales from noon to 2 p.m. tomorrow, Dec. 19, at Poulsbo’s Peninsula Outfitters.

Bremerton's FreshLocal provides year-round market for locally grown foods

  • Dec 17, 2009 at 9:00AM updated at 12:33PM

Jean Schanen is a small, busy woman with no time to spare. What she lacks in spare time doesn’t compare to what she lacks in space. The 71-year-old planted a garden on her roof, carport, yard and the yards of her neighbors. She and her husband Glenn Huff, 79, have been farming produce for decades, first on land in Brazil, then a 50-acre farm in Wisconsin, and now in and around their Bremerton home. They know a thing or two about trying to sell those goods. “Agriculture in this country is almost totally dominated by giant corporations. It’s very, very difficult to compete,” said Schanen. Bigger names can undercut small farms in prices, while many grocery stores won’t buy from them, making a modest producer’s search for a market a hardship, she said. Until they find FreshLocal, Schanen’s Bremerton project providing a year-round market for food that’s grown in the region.

Pete Spencer brings Songwriters' Conversations to Poulsbo's Jewel Box

  • Jan 14, 2010 at 8:00AM updated at 11:56AM

Performers traditionally preempt their songs, offering an audience a small explanation on its meaning or background. But songwriters don't often talk specifics when they're speaking about their work, and rarely will they delve into technical nuances — mostly, they talk about where they were when writing a song, or what they were thinking about, Spencer noted.
