At the risk of mixing my metaphors, my head has been swimming with boat building for the last few weeks. “Boat Builders on the Bay” is the subject of this year’s major exhibit at the Poulsbo Historical Museum, and what a lesson it has been for me. One of the side benefits of planning and installing exhibits is the education I receive while doing the research for them.

Huckleberry Finn in Mark Twain’s novel about the inhumane treatment of African slaves was just about the same age as Poulsbo Elementary fifth-graders. Some years back, a movement arose to ban that book because it used the N-word. Never mind that it was a powerful statement against racism. Saner minds prevailed and I thought that kind of rigid thinking had passed.

The port is committed to protection of the downtown waterfront, bay and harbor and serves as a steward of the Liberty Bay community, promoting environmental preservation and restoration, improved public access and public spaces. This sounds like a win, win, right? Probably not.

The proposed annexation more than doubles the size of the current port and includes an immediate tax increase of 30 cents per $1,000 of assessed value of all annexed properties. The port did not engage the communities that would be affected by this expansion and only held one public meeting last week.

Let me offer several thoughts on port expansion. While the port is fiscally sound, it is operating in break-even mode. Almost every penny of revenue received in 2014 is committed to operations and maintenance. Our creosote breakwater has a limited life — and a $7 million to $12 million replacement cost.

Local, state and federal emergency management officials take 911 access seriously. So, when Ash and Angie Daignault of Suquamish weren’t able to connect to 911 when their 10-month-old daughter had a seizure Jan. 16, the incident started an investigation that ultimately involved officials at Kitsap County CenCom, the state Emergency Management Division, and the manager of the state Enhanced 911 Unit.

The Port of Poulsbo has entertained the idea of expanding its boundaries for nearly one year. Little, if any, opposition to the notion presented itself during that time. In fact, only a handful of supportive voices were raised at port meetings and a town hall on the topic. But at a Jan. 24 forum hosted by the North Kitsap Herald at the Poulsbo City Hall, the opposition finally showed up.
