Indianola puppy tale has a happy ending

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:52PM

"INDIANOLA - The white pup bounds over the best she can, eyeing the fluffy gray tail belonging to Hazel - a cat about four times her size. The pup nips at the tail that flicks with annoyance. Hazel's eyes are more green than gray. The feline, showing little patience or affection for her new housemate, gives her a warning. Maizie, like most puppies, takes it all in stride and finds some other adorable puppy way to entertain herself and her new owners. "

Two wheels and one large dream

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:52PM

"POULSBO - Lisa and Kelly Campo are finding that life is a lot like riding a bicycle. There are long, boring routes. Easy downhill portions.

An old spin on new telecom problems

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 5:51PM

POULSBO - Trying to plan for the future of telecommunications in Kitsap County isn't an easy feat. Just ask members of the Regional Telecom Committee. The group took an innovative approach to the problem of crystal balling such issues as telephone and Internet access this Thursday as they heard from retired Admiral Bruce Harlow on what it takes to create a successful communications coup. Harlow did just that in the mid-1980s when he spearheaded an effort to do away with long-distance telephone charges in Kitsap County. His efforts are pretty much the reason calls from Poulsbo to Kingston are free.
