In Good Taste: Define what it means to eat local
Feb 10 2010, 9:45 AM
Buying food locally, both for business and personal use, is important to me and many people have no idea what it even means.
Local, independent businesses are the heart and soul of any community; it is time for our community to get back to these values. More often than not, it is the knowledgeable service and attention to your needs that you value and respect in these businesses. Local businesses contribute to the community by keeping money here and supporting our immediate economy. Every dollar you spend at a community merchant has three times the impact in our regional economy. Local businesses are more likely to contribute to schools, area projects, community fundraisers, neighborhood functions and civic projects, with no strings attached.
My favorite reason for buying locally grown food is that it almost always tastes better. The economic importance is second, and I also like to focus on the lessened environmental impact of local food.

Kitsap Vim and Vigor | It's lace up, toughen up for Bremerton figure skaters
Feb 11 2010, 10:01 AM
For breakfast each morning, 14-year-old Amber Cheremsak eats a chocolate muffin. It’s a tasty superstition. She’s been starting her days that way since summertime, when she ice skated her way to a third-place finish at the 2009 State Games of America. She hadn’t eaten anything the day of competition, but downed a chocolate muffin just before taking the ice, going on to land a coveted axel and skate a clean performance — all despite a stress fracture in her foot.
