A city's secret weapon: flowers - Kitsap Sun
I just pulled something from the dirt and ingested it with hardly a second thought. I can think of nothing healthier.Our little Bremerton bungalow isn’t much to look at, so few people do. They’re distracted by the towering evergreen that I can’t wrap my arms around. It rises from a carpet of Periwinkle that assaults the sidewalk with sprays of flowers. Across the walkup is a chaotic mess of silvery-blue Mediterannean herbs, with spindly limbs cocked like the arms of old-timey boxers. Pedestrians might identify the spreading strawberries, or notice the small mounds of thyme, oregano, and sage pressed between Rock Rose, lavender, rosemary, and Lamb’s Ear. The plant selection is equal parts nostalgia for a flowering, sun-drenched Old World, and the practical production of fresh berries and herbs for my kitchen. With such emphasis on Turkish flora, I was surprised one day to realize that I’ve grown a very American garden: informal, naturalistic, and pragmatic. Like all gardens, it’s a function of its gardener.We find ourselves in a strange situation where streets and sidewalks are about the only places we can go, but this time of year our humble yards put on a show that’s hard to match. They aren’t usually formal gardens containing frilly things. They’re weird and interesting. They’re full of personality and individualism. Where much of modernity seems robotic, mass-produced, and lacking in the personality and imperfections that make us beautiful, “Old” Kitsap in the spring is chaotic and expressive.So go for a walk, if possible. Stretch your legs. Get some fresh air. When I lived in Turkey, people often took to the streets in the cool of the even... Feb 23, 2017

May flowers bring Bremerton showers of color

BREMERTON ? Each May, around 200 petunia-filled hanging flower baskets appear blooming along boulevards around the city, adding color and life to Bremerton's springs and summers.
Purchased for 8 cents a petunia and grown in a city greenhouse in East Bremerton, they are nurtured from seedling largely by one man: Virgilio "Billy" Ibarra, a longtime member of the city's parks maintenance crew.
"When they start out, they're little babies," said Ibarra, among the city's most senior employees. "But you see them grow, see them blooming and that's the beauty of it."
Like many gardeners, Ibarra has honed his own techniques and styles for attaining the best and brightest Tidal Wave petunias, as they are known. After all, he's been devoted to caring for them for more than 20 years.
"He's really the guy that keeps the program running," said Tom Cressman, Bremerton parks' maintenance manager.
He knows how much they need to eat and drink to thrive. He doesn't discount the idea that a little music al... (Kitsap Sun)Jul 5, 2016
Officer fishes for a Ram on Father's Day weekend
BREMERTON — If you read our weekly column on a regular basis, one of our themes is differentiating between “homeless” people and “criminal transients.”
To confuse one with the other creates unnecessary negativity toward homeless people, and gives way too much credit to criminal transients. Our strategy is to assist homeless people to get services, and at the same time do all we can to not allow or enable criminal transients to hang out and cause trouble in our city.
We have been staffing extra bike patrols all summer and have been focusing on downtown and around our parks. We have had some very positive feedback, and this week there were a couple of cases that show why it is so important.
Here’s your sign
Friday night, Sgt. Kevin Crane and Officer Steven Forbragd were out on bike patrol when they contacted two of our most frequent flyers in a bank parking lot downtown.
They were sitting directly under a large “No Trespassing” sign, which clearly stated “this property has a trespass aut... (Bremerton Patriot)Apr 22, 2016

Carol L. Arends, 83, of Bremerton, died early April 13 at her residence, just three weeks short of the seventh anniversary of her diagnosis with late-stage ovarian cancer.
Viewing is scheduled from 4-7 p.m. Saturday, April 23, at Rill Chapel, Port Orchard. A funeral is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday, April 24, at the Kitsap Conference Center at Bremerton Harborside. A graveside ceremony will begin at 1 p.m. Monday, April 25, at Masonic Memorial Park in Tumwater, Washington.
Mrs. Arends served from 1998-2013 as a member of the Bremerton City Council, including three years as its president (2000, 2002 and 2003). In those years, the council considered and approved several of the projects — including the Conference Center — that contributed to the rebuilding of downtown Bremerton.
Mrs. Arends was born to Esther and Jens Ellingson in Harlow, North Dakota, on Aug. 21, 1932. Within a year, she moved with her parents to Tenino, Washington, where she grew up, graduating second in her class at Tenino High School in 1950. (Bremerton Patriot)Mar 11, 2016
Local florists surviving in the Internet era

BREMERTON — This was a busy week at Paul's Flowers, but you wouldn't know it from a peek inside the store.
The Pacific Avenue shop was all but empty on Thursday afternoon, even with Valentine's Day fast approaching. The bustle was all behind the counter, where Earl Bowers and floral designer Debbi Kong deftly assembled fresh bouquets.
Flower orders were piling up, but not from customers coming through the door.
"It's not about brick-and-mortar anymore," Bowers said. "The bulk of our sales are online or on the telephone."
In decades past, there may have been a line of Valentine's Day customers stretching around the block outside Paul's. But times have changed for the 80-some-year-old floral shop, and others like it. Customers are buying online and local florists jostle for Internet exposure amid a tangle of discount retailers and virtual middlemen. The New York Times reported this week nearly 40 percent of floral businesses nationwide have gone under since 2000.
