In memory

Peebles served the poor and needy

Many citizens of Kitsap County, particularly, the homeless and the poor, mourn the loss of a local hero, Mrs. Delfie Peebles. Mrs. Peebles passed away Friday morning and with her passing, a void has been left that will be hard to fill. Many of the homeless and the poor in the area know Mrs. Peebles as the director of The Lord’s Diner (food kitchen), which is operated from St Paul’s Episcopal Church, at 700 Callahan Drive in East Bremerton. Mrs. Peebles, supported by her husband, the Rev. John Peebles and a host of community volunteers, has reportedly fed approximately 600 homeless and poor people, per weekend, at The Lord’s Diner over the last 5 years or more. This amounts to over 31,000 meals per year. She greeted everyone with a smile and a kind word and, upon meeting her, you knew that she was someone special. Mrs. Peebles believed in helping the less fortunate in our community and was a true Hero to many. Let us learn from her example of service. “...Well done, thou good and faithful servant...” Matt 25:21.

A sweet smile, but ?

Even before I read “Dems Seek Challenger to Lent” in your paper (Saturday, Feb. 4) I already knew Patty Lent was not the person I thought I’d worked for the first time she ran for commissioner.

Since she is so popular with Botkin and the rest of the Demo’s even she shoud know why I certainly won’t support her this time around. I will back Jack!
