We ate a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner last week at the Oystercatcher restaurant in Coupeville. Chef-owners Joe Scott and Jamie Sastre, who are about to leave us for the wilds of Asheville, N.C., outdid themselves with everything from soup (creamy celery root blended with kale) to salad (local greens with apples, pickled figs and feta) to roast turkey (heritage breed grown in Ephrata with sage stuffing and local braised vegetables) to nuts (pecan tart with sour cream sorbet).

It makes good financial sense to get your home and vehicle ready for the winter. So doesn’t it make just as much sense to put some effort into winterizing your landscaping? After all, according to horticultural and lending experts – not your usual bedfellows – landscaping is one of the few home improvements that always increases both the curb appeal and the value of your property. Not only that, but that added value can grow as the landscaping grows and matures over time. Besides, if you’re reading this column, you either enjoy gardening or you enjoy the results of gardening. The last thing you want is to see your hard work during the other three seasons of the year come to nothing after an ugly winter catches you off guard.

Thank you for the update on WAIF’s new shelter building. It was surprising that Mr. Rupp and the “leaders” you mentioned (not sure exactly who) did not include reference to their more important news, the hiring of a new executive director who hails from a well-regarded no-kill shelter in Kansas. Maybe WAIF will now be able to evolve from a “minimal kill” to a no-kill shelter as so many “leaders” connected to WAG are hoping.

Walking into the basement of Jack Tingstad’s house is like taking a trip back in time. Trains traverse the old railroads of Colorado, chugging their way through mining towns. “It’s a great hobby, especially in the Northwest during the winter,” Tingstad said. Tingstad will host his 13th model railroad open house from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at his home on 508 Broadway St in Coupeville. Tingstad has volunteered at the food bank for 10 years, and asks those coming to see his trains bring a donation for Gifts of the Heart food bank.

After taking a break, Ebey Bowl is back in action. The bowling alley was closed for about a month, and re-opened mid-October. On Sept. 22, Traci Wisdom received a phone call from Matt Iverson and Mimi Johnson, the siblings who own Ebey Bowl. They asked her if she wanted to become a partner. The siblings own an Allstate Insurance Company branch in Oak Harbor as well. Between the business in Oak Harbor and the bowling alley, they were not getting to spend as much time with their families, Wisdom said.
