  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:35PM

"POULSBO - A food-service worker in North Kitsap must also be a nutrition expert, a customer service expert, and a fortune teller.

Cofer comes to work at 6:30 a.m. every morning to keep the high school students fed a before-school breakfast, a snack at 9:05, and lunch. Cofer got involved in schools by volunteering when her daughter was in second grade. That was ten years ago. In the meantime, Cofer said, I just worked my way up. Cofer did indeed; next year she will be the president-elect of the Washington School Food Service Association, which has 2400 members across the state. "

"Ask sophomore Christina Miglino about her experiences at West Sound Academy and her face lights up. Ask her what she likes better about this school than her previous one and she'll launch into a series of reasons, but ultimately settles on single theme - the faculty. They are really inspiring... My goal in life is to do something to help others and I really feel that the staff here is here for the kids, she says, noting that the smaller class size helps contributes to a more inviting atmosphere for one-on-one learning, You get all your questions answered in class. At a school where class size ranges from three to 15 students per class, this is more than a ringing endorsement, it is a fact. What makes Miglino's endorsement even more notable is that she's been at the school for less than a week. "

"Inslee, school districts warn of high-tech job crises"

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:34PM

"Washington will face a job crisis unless schools start teaching technological skills earlier in their curriculum, according to Rep. Jay Inslee. It's going to be the great bombshell that will explode on this country, Inslee said. Inslee met Sept.1 with vocational school administrators from districts comprising the West Sound Consortium. They discussed how Washington schools can increase the number of students leaving high school with high-tech skills. Consortium members, citing a study by the American Electronics Association, said the state and nation are falling behind the demand for high-tech workers. Although the number of high-tech jobs grew 21 percent between 1990 and 1998 in the U.S., the number of high-tech degrees dropped five percent. The study said Washington schools should hope to supply at least technical workers a year by 2008 to keep up with the number of jobs available."

Big Valley llamas touch the hearts of the blind

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:34PM

"POULSBO - I think it is almost like a swan with their long curved necks, said Mussie Gebre, describing one of the star attractions at Llama Rose Farm and Gardens Thursday afternoon. The analogy was fitting, but also truly amazing because Gebre doesn't speak, hear or see. Instead, he senses his surroundings. The young native of Eritrea (a small country in Africa) was very inquisitive, asking questions and providing input on what he had witnessed during the day. His interpreter, Anita Harding, who is hearing impaired, assisted Gebre in answering questions via a three-way sign language conversation with Karen Carlson. The trio was part of a 44-person group from the Seattle Light House for the Blind which visited the llamas, camels and garden at the farm on Big Valley Road. Gebre explained that, from what he learned, llamas' fur not only protects them from the sun, but also keeps them warm in the winter. When asked what types of animals flourished in his native country, he signed, I grew up here in America. But in Eritrea, we have lots of horses. "
