Compass for the Week of 11/26/2018

This summer a unique sight graced the Point Hudson Marina. It was a replica of a Thames River Sailing Barge. At destinations world-wide, a nomadic group of performers called the Caravan Stage Company, transform the tall ship’s 21-foot-wide, 90-foot-long deck into a technologically innovative, contemporary theatre space.

In this two-part series, KPTZ DJ & Reporter Chris Bricker explores the evolution of the Company from its roots to its current manifestation, and listens to the stories that spill from the hold of this vessel called the Amara Zee.

#124 Mike Howell, Howell’s Sandwiches

(First airdate: November 20, 2018) BUILDING SANDWICHES & DREAMS. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Mike Howell, the enthusiastic owner of Howell’s Sandwich shop. He’s a Chicago boy who followed his girlfriend (now wife) to Port Townsend. She had a job, he didn’t. After checking things out, he decided the vacant space Jordini’s once occupied was perfect for a Chicago-style sandwich shop. The walls are covered in old family pictures. One shows a very young Mike in a toy plane in front of a hanger at Howell’s Airport, once owned by his grandfather. Mike has big plans for Howell’s.
