Recycling your wares: Finding new homes for unwanted items | Kitsap Week

  • Mar 4, 2011 at 8:00AM

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.

Ask Erin: How to get more miles from your car | Kitsap Week

  • Mar 4, 2011 at 8:00AM

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.
