Mike P. Kohnen II  is the inventor, and the agent of record on the patent 

Steve Stark is a Engineer/Designer specializing in Sports/Toy Inventing. His 
claim to fame is making a glow Frisbee evidently.

If indeed the blog message was from the legitimate Steve Stark, obviously 
there is a disconnect here between the statement of  "no tritium" and the 
applicable patent disclosures.
One can only guess as to the source or reason of that disconnect.
