  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:33PM

"There are times at all newspapers, including the Herald, when we seem to report more bad or sad news than anything else.

"S'KLALLAM- Fellowship flourished under the cedar trees at the tribal center Sunday when several North Kitsap congregations joined in prayer. About 300 members from area churches participated in the fifth annual prayer service hosted by the S'Klallam Community Church. A salmon bake and potluck followed the service. The S'Klallam Nation Singers welcomed the group with traditional welcome songs. It's great, said Michael Jones, leader of the S'Klallam Nation Singers. He looked out over the sea of faces and said it reminded him of his childhood. As young kids we used to get up and sing songs like 'Peace in the Valley,' and 'Old Country Church,' he said. He would perform at the S'Klallam Community Church, the church his grandfather founded and his uncle oversaw for more than 30 years. "

"Escape from Cuba adds personal dimension to Poulsbo teacher's lessonsOne day when Marta Richardson was young and still lived in Cuba, her father and brother were driving in the country and found a cow with its head caught between the slats of a fence.So José Perez, her father, and José Manuel, her older brother, chopped the head off of the cow and somehow lifted the carcass into the car. It dripped blood all the way home. Drops of blood fell from the trunk of the car into the street. When they had driven home and dragged the body of the cow into the courtyard, which was shaded by walls and trees, the family set to chopping up the cow. Soon chunks of meat lay on the ground. Meat to be sold, to be given away, but most of all to be eaten. For Richardson's family, it was a happy time. But the family was reminded of the danger when the head of a neighbor, a known spy for the government, popped up above the wall. She looked at the scene for a moment: the slaughtered cow, the piles of precious meat. Then she asked, Do you think I could have some of that? "

Capt. Mooselips sails into Twinkie history

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:32PM

"POULSBO - What do you do with 2,410 Twinkies? Ask Paul Dudley of Poulsbo. Twenty-two years ago, Dudley started collecting a Twinkie here and a Twinkie there from kids as he ferried the Camp Fire girls and boys across the Puget Sound from Seattle to Vashon Island. It all started very innocently for Capt. Mooselips one summer while he was joking around and checking out campers lunch boxes enroute to Camp Sealth. Spying a Twinkie, he informed the young owner that he could take the helm of Daboata the following year - provided he had another Twinkie for him. The next year, he did, with Mooselips' name on it. But so did a lot of the other campers. The sweet-tasting tradition was born. "
