  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:36PM

"They're choosing up sides, deciding who will play offense and who will play defense while the parents try to understand what's happening on the field. That description could be about any good soccer game, but unfortunately it describes almost every recent North Kitsap Soccer Club board meeting. This outstanding local club has endured month after month of in-fighting, bickering and hurt feelings. People who care deeply about children and providing them with an opportunity to learn and enjoy playing soccer have become locked in bitter accusations and arguments. "

Poulsbo Place gets council agenda spot

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:36PM

"POULSBO - Whack. Just like that, the ball which could give Poulsbo Place its final plat approval is sitting squarely in the court of Security Properties, Inc. If the developers of the 164-house project on Jensen Way return the city's serve, eight years of what has been a back-and-forth contest could very well come to a much awaited conclusion. However, getting the ball over the net by next Wednesday won't be an easy strike for SPI. City council Wednesday night approved a motion to put the final plat on next week's agenda, giving the developers a scant seven days to address a laundry list of concerns raised by the engineering department. The unanimous decision was spawned from councilwoman Connie Lord's urging her fellow elected officials to move the project along. Oddly enough, the move came less than one week after councilman Mike Regis was chastised by Mayor Donna Jean Bruce and others after pledging similar city support to the plat. Regis' promises were made during a special session between SPI and city officials last Wednesday. The remarks upset the city structure because Regis apparently overstepped his powers by telling developers that the engineering department would do whatever necessary to work toward final plat approval.

Their challenge - feeding kids good food they like

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:35PM

"POULSBO - A food-service worker in North Kitsap must also be a nutrition expert, a customer service expert, and a fortune teller. Chris Cofer, the head cook at North Kitsap High School, fills all these roles. Cofer comes to work at 6:30 a.m. every morning to keep the high school students fed a before-school breakfast, a snack at 9:05, and lunch. Cofer got involved in schools by volunteering when her daughter was in second grade. That was ten years ago. In the meantime, Cofer said, I just worked my way up. Cofer did indeed; next year she will be the president-elect of the Washington School Food Service Association, which has 2400 members across the state. "

"Growing, without the pains"

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:34PM

"Ask sophomore Christina Miglino about her experiences at West Sound Academy and her face lights up. Ask her what she likes better about this school than her previous one and she'll launch into a series of reasons, but ultimately settles on single theme - the faculty. They are really inspiring... My goal in life is to do something to help others and I really feel that the staff here is here for the kids, she says, noting that the smaller class size helps contributes to a more inviting atmosphere for one-on-one learning, You get all your questions answered in class. At a school where class size ranges from three to 15 students per class, this is more than a ringing endorsement, it is a fact. What makes Miglino's endorsement even more notable is that she's been at the school for less than a week. "
