As 1st vice commander of the post, I’d like to say a special thank you to everyone who helped us raise just over $500 in support of veteran causes. Every cent raised goes back to veterans and their programs.
On behalf of Fishline, we want to thank our awesome community for your support during our recent Stamp Out Hunger food drive. This annual event is an opportunity for food banks across our country to get a needed shot in the arm at the perfect time, and we always look forward to seeing our shelves full again as we enter into the long summer.
I agree on both issues in Paul Tweiten’s letter (May 8 issue) regarding the Viking statue being adorned with flowers, bunny ears, sombrero, etc., and renaming the pavilion.
I just want to make a comment about the Norseman being adorned in different array. I think it’s wonderful!
Our Norseman statue, in full decor, celebrating one holiday or another — sports events and, yes, even the bunny ears, to say nothing of the horns on his head — is a strong and uplifting figure. A real man, not afraid to wear pink! He welcomes all into this beautiful, exciting and fun Little Norway by the sea.
If you were to remember, I was the one, in a Letter to the Editor, that pointed out when the statue was in place that Scandinavian Vikings didn’t wear horns; it’s a German thing. However, what would she suggest? We knock the horns off?
In his letter May 1 (“Common Core won’t improve education,” page A4), James Behrend nailed it when he identified a root cause of the failure of Common Core as “politicians in Washington, D.C. who are frustrated with the problems in education they do not understand.”
James Olson’s letter regarding religious freedom caused a backlash (“Freedom of religion is sacred, and it’s the law,” page A4, April 10 Herald). As many Catholic bishops have expressed concern about a threat to religious liberty, I want to answer those who say our nation is secular.
These generous donations will be used locally for our various sight projects, including pre-school vision screening, eye exams, glasses for low-income individuals; and potentially for low-vision equipment, seeing-eye dogs, eye surgery, or cornea transplants.
After reading your article concerning Pete DeBoer (“DeBoer says he won’t seek third term on Kingston Port Commission,” April 10 NorthKitsapHerald.com), I feel the need to speak in his defense.
On behalf of the Poulsbo-North Kitsap Rotary Club, I would like to thank all of those that made our May 2 “Building Community Celebration honoring Bill Austin & Ardis Morrow” a wonderful success.
Would you place a 12th Man flag on a Native American totem pole? How about rabbit ears or, as recently done, Mexican attire?
Following is a letter that I sent to Rep. Sherry Appleton earlier Tuesday.
What an amazing community we live and work in...Our efforts to raise fund does not stop now.
