In response to the letter in the Feb. 28 edition, “Fox reports on policies, it doesn’t make them”:
Wow. What’s wrong at the state PTA Region 1? (“Gordon PTA asks sheriff to investigate,” page A1, Feb. 21 Herald).
Editor’s note: The Herald’s editorial did not state that there is fraud, waste or abuse at the Poulsbo Port District. In fact, the port commission has received compensation that is below the allowed threshold. The editorial proposed that the port establish parameters regarding pay in order to prevent abuse.
In my letter to the editor about the placing of the Christmas decorations (“Lots of credit for those Christmas decorations,” Jan. 24, page A4), I overlooked mentioning ...
The Parent Teacher Association can provide many vital functions like fundraising, auctions, family fun nights, etc., to the school and its students. It is not only up to me to make this happen.
I want to reply to the letter, “Comparing liberals and conservatives,” in the Feb. 14 edition, page A4. This liberal view is inaccurate on so many levels. The writer refers to Social Security and Medicare as entitlements, but they are earned benefits paid into while working — unless you are a criminal, drug addict or illegal alien.
We did a book signing at Costco on Feb. 15 and several people mentioned reading about the book in the newspaper. Thank you!
On Feb. 12, my father, an Alzheimer’s patient, went missing from his home. Fortunately he was found after a few hours and before nightfall.
Even though coverage of the major oil spill at Bangor has been moved from the front page of the paper, I hope the Herald’s reporters will continue to investigate and report on circumstances leading to the spill and the Navy’s response.
The news of the principal of Poulsbo Elementary School returning to duty is another example of politically correct hypersensitivity run amok.
Voters are becoming aware of the extraordinary powers granted by statute to what may seem at first to be small and insignificant public offices. Costly decisions can be made that leave voters to pay the bill. The recent election may serve as an informal referendum on whether the voters approve of the radical development policies pursued by the port in recent years and the even larger projections for future expenditures.
In the past, my brother in South Dakota, a strong Republican conservative, would tell me how bad liberals were. At the same time, he was getting Social Security and Medicare which, of course, he wouldn’t have had with Republican conservatives.
People are not against the funding of schools, just the constant increases without proper justification. How much longer can one own a home before they are taxed out of it?
The “Yes for NKSD Kids” citizens campaign is thrilled by the election results. The voters have spoken and have agreed to entrust the North Kitsap School District with their local tax dollars, renewing the school district levy for another four years.
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.
