  1. It sounds like you were fair in handing this matter. Lary did apologize. It’s not always easy working for the Sun, nor for Olympic College apparently.

    I have heard good things about Tom. It would be nice to learn more about how they will serve Port Orchard.

  2. Just this past year, a former Port Orchard City Councilman was convicted of fraud and was forced to resign his position. Now, here’s a candidate for Mayor, who has also committed fraud.

    I really believe these so called criminal politicians should get into another line of work. Like making license plates in prison.

  3. Hi Chris,

    I sent the below info to you before and didn’t remember that my E-mail is blocked to most addresses not on my authorized list. So I don’t know if you have responded. A response on your blog will work for me.


    I see you are a reporter with the Kitsap Sun and cover Port Orchard and South Kitsap. Below, please see a letter which I sent to Jim Campbell, Kitsap Sun’s Opinion Page editor.

    My letter was in response to Chris Dunagun’s article about auditor findings at Karcher Sewer District and Annapolis Water District.

    Your thoughts about what’s going on, please.


    Dear Editor,

    According to my reading of a recent report, Washington State auditors could find no public purpose for a weekend stay in Europe by three of our sewer commissioners here in Kitsap County. To date, the expense to the public is approximately $2,700.

    Also, according to my reading of that report, our commissioners are misusing, if not politically abusing, the General Manager. They are misusing him to resist and refuse to reimburse the public for our sewer commissioners’ personal and private expense.

    Meanwhile, I’m listening to words and tunes, and hearing –

    1. “Your weekend stay in Europe is an unauthorized expense to the public.”

    2. “We want you to reimburse the public, please.”

    3. “Will you reimburse the public, please?”

    4. “Reimburse the public, please.”

  4. Gene – Thanks for your e-mail/blog comment. I have forwarded your comments to environmental reporter Chris Dunagan, cdunagan@kitsapsun.com, who reported the story, and who is in a better position to give insight than me. Chris Henry, SK reporter,

    Next time, if your e-mail doesn’t seem to be getting through, feel free to give me a call, (360) 792-9219

  5. …strange to think anyone would consider Olympic College hard to work for when an employee in a position of trust steals money and is fired from the job. (did she repay the money as promised?)

    ..stranger yet is to see that same employee, possibly looking for deeper pockets, running for public office, Mayor of Port Orchard.
    Does P.O. deserve such a mayor?
    …in my opinion,
    Sharon O’Hara

  6. When the Coppola plagiarism issue was recently raised on the 26th district Democrats’ web forum, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/26thDistrict/ (subscription required), Lary claimed that he’d only copied about 50 words from the BIAW editorial. However as I pointed out in a response, about 60 percent of Lary’s approximately 800-word column in The Sun consisted of material that appeared to have been lifted word for word or with slight alterations from the BIAW article. Lary didn’t respond to my post.
