Thank you for the good memories

Ethan mug,

Today was my last day working as a Kitsap Sun regular contributor. After 21 years as a newspaper journalist I’m ready to try something different. For years, many people have told me that I’d make a good teacher and this is what I plan to pursue. I will soon start working as an emergency substitute teacher in Kitsap County.

I’d like to thank you for all your help and time during my 14 months working for the Sun. Your help meant a great deal to me as I was trying to find my way around Bainbridge Island and Kitsap County!

If you don’t mind, I’d really appreciate it if you could keep me and my family in your prayers as I transition into this new phase of my life.

I do not know who will replace me as the Sun’s next regular contributor for Bainbridge, but I would really appreciate it if you would continue to contact Local News Editor Kimberly Rubenstein when you have story ideas or suggestions.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving,
Ethan Fowler

Bainbridge Islander
