Sanders will be the Democratic nominee

  • Apr 23, 2016 at 10:00AM

The pundit class was wrong then and they’re wrong now. Democrats, especially super-delegates, take note. As our nominee, Bernie Sanders will win the general election.

Supports the system of super-delegates

  • Apr 23, 2016 at 10:00AM

I disagree with Ms. Russell’s letter arguing that the Democratic Party’s system of having super-delegates participate in nominating a presidential candidate is “not democratic” (page A4, April 15 Herald).

Kitsap Weekly a 'wonderful vehicle'

  • Mar 31, 2016 at 2:58PM

Thank you for the wonderful color feature article in Kitsap Weekly about Kitsap Audubon’s April 14 program on "Birds of Prey." It’s a program that is especially popular with families and younger children.

Will vote for 'None of the Above'

  • Mar 31, 2016 at 2:59PM

The country might be better off not having a President for four years than one of the candidates we are stuck to choose from.

Democrats: Don't forget to vote

  • Mar 31, 2016 at 2:00PM updated Apr 5, 2016 at 12:11PM

This election is so important, Republican candidate, Donald Trump, is acting like a dictator. Ted Cruz is constantly running down our president, who has a better approval rating than Ted Cruz will ever have if elected

Letter writer should practice what he preaches

  • Mar 31, 2016 at 3:16PM

If your goal was to express a position of “unbiased balance,” I must give you a failing grade. It is not acceptable to use rascally rhetoric, in which you are guilty of slanting, misquoting, and quoting out of context.

Neighbors coming together for democracy

  • Mar 31, 2016 at 3:20PM

I am advocating for keeping the caucus. I feel strongly that the greater good in what may sometimes feel like a messy process is that of building community and the base of support for candidates in our democracy.

GOP senators are shirking their sworn Constitutional duties

  • Mar 31, 2016 at 3:11PM

The contention that the Senate’s refusal to consider the confirmation of Judge Garland is somehow justified is simply erroneous. The late Justice Scalia would no doubt agree that the inaction of Senate Republicans runs counter to the intent of the Constitution’s framers. The Senate has the right to vote down the President’s choice, but refusing consideration runs counter to the framers' design.

Port boundary expansion good for Poulsbo | In Our Opinion

  • Mar 31, 2016 at 4:21PM

Attract more businesses to Poulsbo. Create new jobs. Find a solution to erosion on Anderson Parkway. Improve the health of Liberty Bay. Improve boat, plane and customer facilities at the Port of Poulsbo. Give yourself a voice in port matters. Spread taxpayer investment in the port across the entire city, not just a portion of it. That seems a good return for an investment of $75.

Neighbor’s dumping is illegal, morally wrong

  • Apr 1, 2016 at 3:10PM

I thought I had seen the end of neighbors dumping on other neighbors’ property when I moved to the small town of Poulsbo. How wrong could one person be?

Unfortunate coverage of police chief

  • Apr 1, 2016 at 3:09PM

In my opinion, the most newsworthy part of the article was the quote of the mayor, “When you have a position with a lot of turnover, it probably means you have inappropriate expectations.”

Thank you for supporting Girl Scouts

  • Apr 2, 2016 at 6:00AM

We are a troop of eighth-grade Girl Scouts. We have been selling cookies for eight years. Every year, we are incredibly grateful for the support we receive from the community.

Climate science is not pseudoscience

  • Apr 2, 2016 at 6:00AM

Joseph E. Connor wrote in the March 25 Herald that we should “stop the handwringing and pseudoscience.” Perhaps, Mr. Connor does not understand what global warming is.

Poulsbo could be on its way to becoming ‘Brew City USA’

  • Apr 2, 2016 at 6:00AM updated Apr 3, 2016 at 7:41AM

With the coming of Rainy Daze Brewing Co., Poulsbo will be No. 1 in the USA in terms of number of breweries per capita. Really.

Pedestrian struck by moving vehicle in downtown Poulsbo crosswalk

  • Apr 25, 2016 at 5:25PM

At about 4 p.m. April 25, Fabiola Sanso crossed Front Street from Hot Shots Java to meet her husband, in a parked car across the street, and was struck in the crosswalk by a VW Passat that was backing up.

Poulsbo 'Y' idea is wrong on several levels

  • Apr 26, 2016 at 6:43AM

What we are so sorely in need of here, in our country and everywhere, is a strong sense of community building, coupled with forward thinking and economically sound governance. Bless your hearts, but where is it in this instance?

After a warm week of sunshine, the weekend brought April showers and the opening of the Poulsbo Farmers Market in a new location: the Poulsbo Parks and Recreation parking lot, 19540 Front St NE.

Neighbors angered by foot path’s closure

  • Apr 25, 2016 at 9:00AM updated Apr 26, 2016 at 9:53AM

For more than 40 years, the informal foot path at the end of James Street had been the public’s only access to the beach in northeast Suquamish. At the end of March, Kitsap County Public Works fenced off the path with a $1,500, 40-foot-long, eight-foot-high chain link fence put up at taxpayers’ expense.

Continue community dialogue on human trafficking

  • Apr 4, 2016 at 11:43AM

Last week's article on sex-trafficking "Putting down the beast of human trafficking" (page A6, April 1 Herald) should open a community discussion on this heinous crime. To read that 50 percent of the victims are young girls about 12 to 14 years of age is shocking and to learn that sex-trafficking exists in Kitsap County and not just big cities like Seattle shows us how pervasive it is.

Hey, what happened on the editorial page?

  • Apr 4, 2016 at 12:48PM

While enjoying your Vol. 115, No. 14 issue, it appeared that your proofreader may have had a little too much of one of the products of "Brew City.”

The first 'Trump Tower'? It was in Seattle

  • Apr 28, 2016 at 4:02PM

Frederick Trump, grandfather of presidential candidate Donald Trump, emigrated the U.S. from Germany in 1885 at the age of 16. Soon after his arrival in Seattle in 1891, he purchased a restaurant, which also offered “private rooms for ladies,” located in Seattle’s red-light district.
