  1. Creation of Hood Canal: Splendor at Risk has great memories for me. Working with the staff of the Sun to produce that reporting project was a highlight of a 33-year career as a daily newspaper journalist. Congratulations to Chris … here’s to the memory.

  2. Congratulations Chris, friends and colleagues of Chris’ for all your hardwork and dedication to such important enviro issues! You deserve nothing less than a standing ovation from the entire Puget Sound/Hood Canal community. A great big applause of appreciation to all those special folks who have been directly and indirectly involved with bringing light to such a disconcerting issue where Hood Canal and all our waterways are concerned. Many of us out here have a great appreciation of your dedication in covering the issues, your intellectual writings and the science you bring back to us even if we don’t always get a chance to tell you. A sincere thanks and a standing ovation also go to Kitsap Sun for keeping up this most important “telling of our waterways times” reporter! Chris, you’ve been awesome! Always on it, always dedicated to the truth and in there asking the hard questions. We look forward to your next 20 year anniversary too.
    Thanks also to those who helped get this most important book online! How cool is that?!
    I will be sharing it to all I know!
    Signed, Mom 😉

  3. Several years ago I made a short video about some of the research being done in Hood Canal—it offered a unique perspective, showing some of the science from below the surface of the water, showing some the things that many people hear about but never get to see. It also has interviews with Jan Newton and Dan Hannafious. This was intended to be part of a larger documentary, but I was never able to find funding to expand it.

  4. The fact that it is “still the refrain” doesn’t speak too well for those researchers who have built careers (not) solving the problems. (Of course, solving the problems is bad for the budget…)

  5. With all due respect, I don’t think researchers can be blamed for development that has taken place over 100 years and continues throughout the watershed. Researchers may be able to tell you, if asked, what the problems are and what is likely to happen under various future scenarios. But all of us who live and work in the watershed are responsible for the changes taking place.

  6. So, if the research has no impact on the situation (and is given a pass on results) why should we continue to fund it?
