I was looking out my kitchen window when I saw my dog kill a squirrel in the neighbor’s yard. I know my neighbors are still at work and won’t know my dog was the squirrel murderer. Do I have to clean up the remains? Or can I leave it for them?

I read your recent article in the Kitsap Week section of the Bremerton Patriot and was wondering if you might have some advice for my situation. This used to be a very quiet neighborhood. However, a year or so ago a family moved in “kitty-corner” across the street from us. Last summer they parked their car in their driveway, opened the doors and turned on the stereo full blast.

For Beverly and Steve Phillips, raising goats is more than a full-time job. It’s a lifestyle. “We haven’t been out to dinner in 20 years,” Steve said during a recent visit to their dairy farm on Bainbridge.

When LeOnna Small burned through three hand-mixers in a short amount of time, she wondered why things weren’t made to last. “I kept getting out my mom’s heavy mixer, the one she handed down to me. The one I will probably hand down to my own daughter,” Small said. Small began to think about over-consumption and how things are frequently tossed into the land fill. She wondered: What ever happened to fixing an item? Or repurposing something to better fit your needs?

The last time I went to fill-up my car, I became light-headed. The cause wasn’t from the gas fumes, but rather from the price of a gallon of gas. Gas prices are sky-rocketing. With oil prices hovering around $100 per barrel, experts warn that prices aren’t going to drop anytime soon. At the gas station near the Kitsap Week office, regular unleaded gas is listed at $3.599 a gallon.

A polar bear seemed to be wandering the hallway. Upon closer inspection, the majestic animal with the white fur wasn’t a polar bear at all, but rather Marty, a Great Pyrenees dog.

The blanket in Karen Gerstenberger’s arms is more than a pretty quilt. For her daughter, Katie, it was an important source of comfort while in the hospital. The blanket became Katie’s bathrobe, a blinder to hide her from watching shots, a mask to block smells, and a way to pass the time by discussing the different flowers on the fabric. And after Katie passed away, it became Karen’s motivation to start Katie’s Comforters Guild.

Officer and a gentlewoman: Darlene Iskra made history as first female commander of a U.S. Navy ship | Kitsap Week

When Darlene Iskra joined the Navy in early 1979, she was looking for a steady job with benefits. She received much more: a successful career that would see her become the first female commander of a Navy ship. "I knew I was the first (woman) and I felt a responsibility to show that equal opportunity works in the Navy," said Iskra, who recently moved to Bremerton. Iskra's rise to command wasn't easy.

When my family is invited to a casual dinner party at a friend's home and I am asked to bring a dish, do I also need to bring a bottle of wine? I know it's nice to bring a hostess gift if you are coming empty handed, but I am not sure about the right thing to do when you've been assigned part of the meal.
