When the Port of Poulsbo broached the topic of increasing its number of liveaboard slips with the City of Poulsbo earlier this year, it was answered with two main concerns: parking and the environment. Since then, the port came up with a proposal to address those concerns. When Poulsbo’s city council met with port representatives on Sept. 10 to discuss that proposal, they parted, again, with two concerns: parking and the environment.
The media is reporting the news about the local 17-year-old young man and high school student who is alleged to have murdered a 6-year-old girl. I am glad the prosecutor’s office moved quickly to charge him with both rape and murder. Unfortunately, if he is found guilty he will be another heinous criminal who will escape the death penalty because of the “law.”
Thank you for making the choice to err on the side of safety. I know it could not have been an easy decision and that the fallout has been difficult for you to say the least. I believe every student at that school and their families owe you a debt for making the brave choice.
