Would you be surprised to learn that Fishline Food Bank wasn’t always a food bank? In the beginning, in 1967, a group of residents came together to help each other in very tangible, community kind of ways. Headquartered in a local church, early volunteers of “The Fishline” stood at the ready to help. If you needed a ride to the doctor, someone could drive you. If your lawn needed mowing and you were sick, a volunteer would pitch in. After a time, donations of clothes and household items started coming in, and a bigger building had to be found.
Poulsbo’s city code puts restrictions on grading and clearing of property proposed for development, in order to preserve trees and habitat. The idea is to discourage the wholesale clearing of property to be developed. Mayor Becky Erickson said the Mountain Aire subdivision was approved under older rules, and therefore didn’t have to conform to newer grading and clearing rules. The result: The clearcut that graced the front page of the July 25 North Kitsap Herald.
The City of Poulsbo should buy the troubled, flood-prone 8th Avenue property on Dogfish Creek so stream flows and fish passage can be improved, flooding alleviated, and a home that should never have been placed on the property removed.
