How to keep your dog calm on the Fourth | Being Humane

  • Jun 18, 2015 at 4:28PM

I have nothing against fireworks on the Fourth of July. It’s tradition, after all, and a fitting way to commemorate our country’s independence. What does concern me — mainly because the extended celebration is pure torture for my three dogs — is the launching of firecrackers weeks before the Fourth and in the weeks following.

Astrology is entertainment, not scientific fact

  • Jun 21, 2015 at 9:00AM

I refer to the article by Ms. Suzanne O’Clair in the Kitsap Week section of the Herald’s June 12 edition. Appropriately enough, the article is entitled “Warning: ‘Open Mouth, Insert Foot’ Zone Ahead.” I believe, in writing this article, Ms. O’Clair did precisely that!

Destroying habitat and special places

  • Jun 21, 2015 at 9:00AM

Boats with people living on them add character, revenue and security to the port and merchants of Poulsbo. The Poulsbo merchants get zero revenue from a vacant boat tied to a slip in the Poulsbo marina. However, they will do very well from the liveaboard occupants and their visiting friends and relatives.

Look at all of the consternation caused by the National Security Agency because of perceived violation of the constitutional privacy of American citizens. Don’t people realize that even worse violations are happening in our schools under Common Core?

Students model adults’ driving habits

  • Jun 19, 2015 at 9:00AM

It’s that time of the year again — graduations, proms, and end-of-the-school-year parties. It’s also the time of year when firefighters see far too many motor vehicle collisions and lives lost. Most often, these are tragedies that could have been avoided.

In defense of traffic roundabouts

  • Jun 19, 2015 at 9:00AM

I love roundabouts. They are an efficient means of avoiding full stops where they are not needed, i.e. four-way stops. Please note that no one seems to understand how a four-way stop works. When you are in a roundabout, there is no doubt what is going on. Get in and get out.

‘Norseman’ supported Girls Night Out

  • Jun 18, 2015 at 3:57PM

I hope for this to be the last letter to you regarding our Viking statue. I want to take part of the responsibility for all the uproar because I am the person who put the pink apron — it was supposed to be a skirt but he’s just too big — on him. The pink attire was not for Mother’s Day, as referenced by one letter, but for Girls Night Out on May 6.

Redundant development is ‘just plain stupid’

  • Jun 18, 2015 at 3:56PM

Redundant development saturates the market; there’s only so much money to go around. I said years ago when Walmart opened at Olhava that Albertsons would go under. Obviously, that didn’t happen then, but it has happened now due to the totally unnecessary Safeway.

KRCC should change its voting structure | In Our Opinion

  • Jun 18, 2015 at 3:55PM

Bremerton may be flexing its urban municipal muscle in an attempt to force a change in the voting structure of the Kitsap Regional Coordinating Council, or it may be serious about leaving KRCC. This we do know: The departure of Kitsap’s largest city from KRCC would complicate unified regional planning efforts — efforts that are required by the state’s Growth Management Act.
