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.

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.
