'Beast Mode' breakdown | Road to the Super Bowl

  • Jan 19, 2015 at 9:49AM

When the Seattle Seahawks acquired Marshawn Lynch in 2010, they didn’t just get a running back, they got an identity. Over the past five seasons, Lynch has not only been one of the NFL's best backs, he has also helped define the physical, smash-mouth style that brought Seattle its first Super Bowl title.

‘We just kept believing’: A look back at one wild, crazy game | NFC Championship

  • Jan 19, 2015 at 6:55AM

Just how crazy was this game? If not for a touchdown pass from a punter to a backup offensive tackle, the Seahawks don’t win. If not for a pass on a two-point conversion that had the hang time of a punt, the Seahawks don’t win. If not for an onside kick going right through the hands of Packers tight end Brandon Bostick and off his helmet to Matthews, the Seahawks don’t win.

He’s got the home in Kingston, but pain lingers

  • Jan 16, 2015 at 10:08AM

Almost five years after he paid $65,000 cash for it, Peter Miele has the manufactured home he bought from Golden Homes of Poulsbo. Golden Homes had refused to deliver the house unless it received more money for site preparation, a condition Miele alleges was not in his contract. So the house sat on Golden Homes’ Viking Avenue lot, in two pieces, with plastic sheeting separating the interior from the elements. But plastic sheeting can only do so much.

We need solutions, not ‘nonsense’

  • Jan 19, 2015 at 10:00AM

“That government is best which governs least” is often quoted by political conservatives out of context from Thoreau’s essay, “Civil Disobedience.” This political philosophy is clearly identified in that context as a utopian ideal, not a historical fact, by Thoreau’s own words following it.

Mourn for those that sacrifice most

She paid the ultimate and lopsided price for our right to bear arms and there is no way to repay her. We should remember her in our prayers as a hero and pray for all innocent Americans that have, or will, take a bullet to let this freedom ring.

President is correct on Cuba policy

  • Jan 19, 2015 at 10:00AM

Port of Kingston could be an economic force

  • Jan 17, 2015 at 10:00AM

While hordes of cars disgorge from the ferry on a daily basis, most continue straight through Kingston unless the gas tank is empty or the kids are clamoring for a Big Mac. Kingston presently offers no clear identity to the traveling public, so most people never consider it a destination. They just put the foot to the pedal and barrel on through.

Don’t end option of half-day kindergarten

  • Jan 17, 2015 at 10:00AM

I know the voices from the “wanting all-day kindergarten” camp are loud, but they are not the only voices. While it may be preferable for a child to be in kindergarten rather than daycare, it is not preferable for a young child to be away from their mother all day.
