Flowers To Go celebrates people's milestones
News GroupFlowers play an impactful role during big moments of our lives. Bouquets send messages that words sometimes can’t. And Flowers To Go in Port Orchard wants to help send those messages.The florist shop has been around since 1982. Now with eight locations, the family-owned business is somewhat of an anomaly.“We’re fairly unique for a family-owned business,” owner Will Gross said. “We’re successful at paying attention to what people want and we do our best to deliver it and continue to grow and have success.”Gross’s parents originally started the company before he bought them out six years ago.“Before I bought it, I was running it,” he said. “They showed me the way. I was a little kid in the warehouse processing flowers, and I’ve been at it ever since.”Although he laughs at the idea of calling his shop “Gross Flowers” (there used to be a florist in Port Angeles with the name), he wants to start transitioning the stores to the new moniker “William’s Flowers” this year.“Some think it’s kind of narcissistic to name it after myself, but my dad’s William and his dad’s William. You can go back for centuries. It’s crazy.“So for me, it’s about hono... (Kitsap Daily News)Apr 22, 2016
Carol Arends, former Bremerton council member, dies at 83
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. After attending business college, she went to work for what is now the Department of Natural Resources. While there she met her husband, John H. Arends, a Tumwater storekeeper she married on Feb. 12, 1956. They had two sons, Jack and Jens.
In 1970, the family moved to Bremerton after John was hired as business manager of what became the Frances Haddon Mo... (Bremerton Patriot)Apr 22, 2016

Making the Arrangements for a World Market
Wiley bought loose brush from harvesters and resold it to Pacific Coast Evergreens in Port Orchard, making a small profit by presorting and bunching the stems. Pickers today bunch their own.
Wiley now is back to harvesting. With the kids grown, his expenses are few, but he still enjoys getting out in the woods a couple days a week when the weather is nice, as much for the solitude and exercise as for the money.
“I think it’s really healthful,” Wiley said. “I could go out and buy a treadmill I guess, but this is way better than that.”
THE IMMIGRANT FACTOR
Since the early 1980s, immigrants have largely replaced white brushpickers like Wiley.
After the Vietnam War, the Pacific Northwest saw an influx of Southeast Asian refugees. Latinos also arrived, some via Eastern Washington’s agriculture industry, some directly from their native countries.
According to Freed, who has worked closely with groups of harvesters, many of the Latino pickers came from rural, economically depressed towns, driven by lack of viable employment.
“They come from areas where there’s no jobs or jobs don’t pay enough to feed their family, let alone put their children through school,” Freed said.
In an unscientific study some years ago, Freed found that Latino pickers were supporting an average of seven to nine other people.
Many had farming backgrounds, so working in the woods came easily. The new immigrants took advantage of work that didn’t require English skills or expensive supplies. With transportation to the fields and rubber bands, harvesters could earn a decent living if they were willing to work hard.
“This is true entry level,” Freed said. “If this was McDonald’s, these are the people who wash the floors.”
Jesus Echevarria, a native of Durango, Mexico, moved to Shelton in 1974 and started picking brush part time while also working for a Christmas tree company. Early on, Echevarria was one of the only Mexicans in town. Others arrived later.
The trickle of Latino workers became a flood in 1989, when a labor shortage in the Christmas greens industry led brush houses to seek workers from Eastern Washington fruit farms. Freed helped coordinate the arrival of 150 pickers. The mostly Mexican group worked through the holiday season. Many stayed on. Word-of-mouth brought others to the Mason-Kitsap area.
Many, like Echevarria, have gained a better quality of life.
“At first it was hard. People lived in the mountains,” Echevarria said. “They would sleep in their cars. Now all these people have their houses, cars, businesses.”
Echevarria gained legal residency during a federal amnesty program. Now a U.S. citizen, he owns Disco Durango, a bar in Shelton with food, music and dancing.

Evans mother, son team show support for law enforcement with gift baskets
Seattle police officer — stepped into the picture. Hughes also has an uncle who is the fire marshal of South Kitsap Fire in Port Orchard, Wash., which is located about 13 miles west of Seattle across the Sinclair Inlet of the Puget Sound.
Hughes remembers baking cookies and cupcakes with her mother and delivering them to Seattle precincts as a treat. She wanted to instill that same sense of appreciation in her son. In July she moved from Seattle to Evans with her longtime boyfriend, Tim Carter.
Just a month after landing in Colorado, Hughes was on the cusp of keeping that tradition alive. Her newly created Facebook page, “Support for Law Enforcement,” attracted 600 followers in less than 24 hours, with many local residents expressing interest in helping Hughes with her cause.
In September, on national Thank A Police Officer Day, Hughes and Korben made their first round of visits, bringing gift baskets to the Greeley, Loveland and Fort Collins police departments.
Although there was a sense of personal accomplishment, Hughes said the gesture really is about reminding local police officers that their efforts don’t go unnoticed, despite the national sentiment following controversial officer-involved shootings in Ferguson, Baltimore, New York City and elsewhere during the past two years.
“It’s never easy being a police officer, but it’s especially hard today,” Hughes said. “It’s important to let them know they’re appreciated and that we as a community stand behind them.”
That sentiment wasn’t lost on Evans Police Chief Rick Brandt and Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams, who both said their officers sometimes need a morale boost given the near-constant stream of negative stories on TV, in the newspapers and on social media.
“One thing we’re constantly reiterating to our officers is that we’re hearing from a very small segment of the population that happens to be getting a lot of media attention right now,” Brandt said. “I’ve been doing this a long time now, and I know it’s a hard job that doesn’t always come with a lot of thanks. What she’s doing is very inspiring. It mak... (Greeley Tribune)
