Get caught reading

On a recent visit to Liberty Bay Books in Poulsbo I found several books to drool over and covet. I thought, since it’s so chilly out lately, you may want to head to Liberty Bay or your own favorite bookstore to check out these offerings. Some are pricey but others you might just want to buy now and take home to savor for hours and hours.

The Earth stood still, and so did the plot

  • Dec 20, 2008 at 12:00AM

Director Scott Derrickson’s “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” remake of Robert Wise’s 1951 creation, might be better sold as an accidental comedy than an actual world’s end thriller. Stuffed with special effects and riddled with losing dialogue, the sorry sci-fi redo holds plenty more moments of unintentional hilarity than it does sound storytelling. Though it took top notch at the box office, this newest version of “The Day” is certainly anything but.

Amy’s Decadent Chocolates struggles amid recession

  • Dec 11, 2008 at 11:58PM

Even chocolate can’t sweeten the economy. Amy Jablonski, owner of Amy’s Decadent Chocolates in Bremerton, said this is typically her busiest time of year, but that hasn’t been the case this holiday season. “It has been slower,” she said. “This is it. Christmas is chocolate.” Despite a noticeable decline in customers and sales, Jablonski said Amy’s Decadent Chocolates is still making ends meet.

Community support slim for Bremerton basketball

  • Dec 12, 2008 at 12:00AM

I am writing this letter because I went to a Bremerton basketball game in Port Townsend Tuesday and there were exactly 10 adults and four children there representing both the JV and varsity Knights (that is a total of 25 boys). I realize people have jobs and other commitments (as do I), but when our children are doing something constructive they should be supported. My son has played sports for Bremerton High School for four years and the turnout for the games has always been poor (even the home games), but none as poor as for basketball. It is bad enough the referees don’t give the boys a fair chance, but for those boys to look up in the bleachers and not see the support they want and, in my opinion, deserve is even worse. Even though the support should come mainly from family, it also should be represented by our community. Coach Lindberg has the varsity basketball team help with the Special People’s Cruise every year at the Bremerton Yacht Club to teach them community responsibility, so it would be nice if we could show them the community cares about them. We have one high school in the Bremerton School District, so the support should be there. These kids will hopefully be living and working in Bremerton; buying homes, cars, using services, etc. so they should be made to feel that representing their school is just as important to their family and community as it is to them. There was a time not more than five years ago that all the games had a crowd of spectators. I am not sure what changed to bring about the decrease in attendance, but whatever the reason we need to change it back and show other communities that we are proud of our kids and will support them 100 percent.
