The flower shop opened its new storefront Sept. 1.(Photo: Arla Shephard Bull / Mason County Life)For Dana Kugler, the flower business is a family affair.Kugler owns Maddy’s Old Town Flowers, which opened at a new storefront location in Belfair on Sept. 1, the first storefront Kugler has had since 2013. Maddy’s Old Town Flowers is named after Kugler’s daughter, and flowers are in their genes.Kugler’s mother, Linda Peters, works for Kugler and co-owned the shop’s first storefront in Silverdale years ago. Kugler’s grandmother owned Belfair’s first flower shop, Naomie’s Flowers, in the 1980s.“I was born into this,” Kugler said. “I’m third-generation. We grew up with it. My cousins and I would sit in the back with grammy and arrange flowers and ask, ‘Is this good enough to sell?’ We were constantly digging out old flowers from the trash.”While Kugler explored other jobs early in her adulthood, from working desk jobs to slinging pizzas, she’s always turned back to flowers.“I can’t g...

Moms and mementos: The Mother's Day to remember
This is a ring holder that my son, Tim Tonguis, gave me for Mother’s Day in 1963 when he was 8 years old and a student at Belfair Elementary School. Tim is now 60 years old; I am 89. — Catherine Tonguis, of Greenwell Springs
As a 7-year-old child on our family vacation to Florida, I hadn’t remembered to buy a Mother’s Day gift for my wonderful mom, Betty LeBlanc, of New Orleans! My dad allowed me to pick out a gift at one of the roadside Stuckey’s on the way to our destination. Two souvenir vases with a tropical scene hand-painted on the base impressed me as one of the loveliest gifts I had ever seen. Dad purchased the duo as my gift, though Mom was never the wiser. With my mom now gone, they remain in my possession today as a reminder that beauty is in the eye of the beholder! — Jackey Metz, of Central
In 1949, Mother’s Day was on May 8. I was in the first grade. My aunt took me to S.H. Kress at Third and Main Street in Baton Rouge. I purchased this doll pin cushion for my mother, the late Helen Cambre. It sat on her dresser for 66 years until she passed away last April at 92 years old. It now resides on my dresser. — Phyllis C. Mack, of Port Vincent
When my mother, Celina Cornet Roussel, died in September 1996 I found among her memorabilia the plain, yellowed Mother’s Day card I made about 1958. I recall asking Mama to help me with a Paulina Elementary art project in second or third grade. She recited a poem which I incorporated into her card. The “H” in Mama’s poem did not accurately describe her, but that did not matter to this young girl because my brunette mother was still young and might have white hair some day, I supposed. The words are still committed to my memory all these years later. Mama kept the card for 38 years, and I now have it! — Millie Roussel Matherne, of Gonzales
At the age of 8, in 1963, my son Steve gave me this prayer card as a Mother’s Day gift. As you can see, its edges are frayed but only because it has been in every wallet I’ve owned since that Sunday 53 years ago. I call it my lucky charm because I truly believe it is. — Del Materne, of Metairie
This recipe book was given to me on Mother’s Day in 1958 by my oldest daughter, Rebecca “Becky” Forman Coxe. Becky was 6 years old and in the first grade in Bastrop. I am now 86 and Becky is 63, and the recipes in it are still used often. — Carol Forman, of Baker
There are three treasured gifts I always kept on my desk at work and, now retired, at home. During my workday as a young working mom, I could look at the pencil holders and be assured that my children, Gene Settoon age 6 in 1992, now 30; and Christine Settoon, age 6 in 1995, now 27; were happy in their first year at St. Philip Neri. They each came home with their kindergarten project so very proud. When they would visit my office they noticed their gift on my desk and beamed when a coworker would admire their artwork! The “Mom” rock was painted by my daughter at about the same age during a craft lesson from her Granny, my mother Dolores Dollar, and reminds me that parents are the “rock” for their children all of their lives. — Debbie Settoon, of Kenner
My son Graham made this cut-out card when he was in grade school — probably about first or second grade. He is left-handed and you will see from the inside of the card that it opens from the left. You will see from oldest son Greer’s card, it opens to the right and, rather than a cut-out, he drew a teddy bear, cut it out and pasted it on top of the card. The cards are unique, so different and special, as are my sons. I keep the cards taped to my bathroom mirror. Graham is now 20 and a fre... (The Advocate)Jan 8, 2016
A summer of change for Gig Harbor's farmers markets
The waterfront market, on the other hand, wanted to bring in produce vendors from around the area. For Ken VanBuskirk of Davis Farm in Belfair, that’s appealing.
“One of the things about this market is it’s strictly local producers and farmers,” he said.
The Waterfront Farmers Market had about 1,000 visitors a week shopping at the more than 20 vendors in Skansie Brothers Park, according to a Sept. 14 release from the alliance.
The downtown market benefited from a relationship with the City of Gig Harbor, which provided seed money to start the market and hire Rose as director.
The summer market season may be ending, but there’s still a market for residents and visitors to check out that runs into the winter.
The Gig Harbor Farmers Market hosted indoors at Peninsula Gardens will keep running through the end of the year, offering peninsula residents a way to get direct-to-consumer goods while in the bleaker months of the Washington fall. It closes Dec. 19.

Making the Arrangements for a World Market
Saville goes through a couple boxes of it each week. That’s 50 bunches, each a handful of sprigs.
Continental Floral Greens of Belfair is one of the larger companies among a cluster of more than a dozen floral greens outfits in the Mason-Kitsap area.
Counting mid-size companies and small brush sheds, often literally operating out of the owner’s garage, there are an estimated 40 to 50 floral greens companies in Washington and Oregon, representing a multimillion-dollar industry.
Their inventory — salal, huckleberry, bear grass and other non-timber forest products — grows wild in the woods. But those who harvest it know it’s anything but free.
PEOPLE AND THE FOREST
In the cold early morning, Jorge Luis Tomas arrives to his designated plot of forest in Belfair. He cuts into the woods, finding a slight path his footsteps have made before. Tall trees rise toward the sky, their branches making a canopy and shading the forest floor. The undergrowth is tall and thick. Tomas doesn’t waste any time — his eyes quickly seek out the leathery leaves of salal on a long, flat stem. It’s the perfect piece.
He snaps the branch in one hand and strips off the lower, spotted leaves with the other while already looking for the next addition to his bunch. By mid-afternoon, Tomas has collected scores of salal bunches, held together with rubber bands. He hoists the load on his back and sets off down the trail, almost invisible beneath the bundles of brush.
Tomas came to Mason County from Guatemala in 1999, driven by “economic necessity.” He is part of the latest wave of brush harvesters in an industry where the dominant demographic changes every few decades.
