New Liberalism: The real enemy within

  • Apr 13, 2014 at 3:00PM

I was sad to see Rep. Derek Kilmer, D-Bremerton, coming out against free speech, selectively supporting who and how campaigns are funded.

Lack of fair treatment for KHS from district

  • Apr 13, 2014 at 3:00PM

Designate, promote downtown as an arts, cultural district | In Our Opinion

  • Apr 11, 2014 at 3:21PM

A Downtown Poulsbo Cultural District designation would draw visitors here for artistic, cultural and social experiences. It would encourage the location of more artistic and cultural businesses and the continued revitalization of downtown’s heritage buildings (Thor’s Hammer and Needle, whose graphic art adorns bodies to skateboard decks, occupies the oldest building in Poulsbo. Bluewater Artworks transformed a dilapidated, vacant appliance building into a vibrant arts center). And it would spur more arts and cultural events.
