  1. Congratulations Chris – I can’t think of any other reporter that deserves these awards more than you! It has been a pleasure and honor to work with you over the past decades, and we have been thankful for your thoughtful and accurate reporting of all things orca and environment.

    We always love getting calls from you, knowing you will often ask questions we can’t answer, and that will make us delve deeper into the issue to help find the best information for you to work with. We have enjoyed these conversations with you and look forward to many, many more in the decades to come! THANK YOU for all you do to help educate the citizens of the Salish Sea about this jewel we call home, along with the whales, the salmon, and all the critters that depend on this ecosystem that supports us all.

  2. You not only inform us about our environment and the science of it’s nature, but–since you have engaged many people, organizations, and social processes over the many years of your reporting work–you also give us your lessons learned. Thank you for your experience and your perspective.

  3. The first step in good science is observation. It seems so simple but is rarely the case. Thank you for observing and reporting. You are a scientist and a scholar.

  4. Thank you, Chris for all the years you’ve spent educating us. Best wishes as you move on…Will you write for the KS occasionally…or let us know where we can keep reading your stories?

  5. I would like to thank everyone who has sent along kind words about me and my work through the years. I owe much to many people who have been willing to discuss their work with me — including you, Susan Berta of Orca Network. Whales are important to the people who live in the Puget Sound area, and I hope to keep reporting about them with your help and that of other experts.

    Michael Maddox, I’ve always appreciated your support, and I’m glad to know that you are still actively involved in efforts to protect the local ecosystem.

    Thank you, Harry Branch. I have enjoyed reading your thoughtful comments on issues related to Puget Sound, such as stormwater and environmental protection.

    Mary Swoboda, I retired from the staff of the Kitsap Sun in October, but I’m still writing in-depth articles for the paper along with this blog. I covered the Legislature, writing about environmental issues, for InvestigateWest, a nonprofit journalism organization. I’m currently working on a couple writing projects for the Puget Sound Institute, affiliated with the University of Washington’s Tacoma Campus. So you are likely to see my byline for a while.

    Sharon O’Hara, I’ve always appreciated your comments on this blog. I expect I’ll be discussing my various writing projects in this space as time goes on. If you’d like to read my legislative coverage, go to the InvestigateWest website. Many of these stories were published in the Kitsap Sun.
