Mount Tahoma High sophomore is a track sensation

  • May 31, 2008 at 3:00PM updated Jun 3, 2008 at 3:41PM

Ruby Roberts has made a habit out of physically assaulting running tracks throughout the state. Her latest victim, the Mount Tahoma High School’s track in Tahoma, fared no better than victims past. Roberts, a sophomore — yes, she’s only a sophomore — became the one to beat and the one who’s unbeatable all in the same day. During May 24’s 2A state track meet, she surpassed her own expectations with a jaw-dropping 1600-meter time of 4:59.76. She ran an entire mile in just a shade under five minutes.

No friendly skies left to fly

O, for the days of regulated airlines. Prices and routes were predictable. Airlines provided good customer service. They offered incentives to travel with them: free hot meals, pillows and blankets, unlimited free checked baggage. And that was for all flyers, including coach. Nowadays, that sounds like something from a fantasy, especially if one flies coach.

Spot anything odd? Pre-cancerous marks should be checked out early

  • Jun 4, 2008 at 3:00PM

Years ago, I forget how many, but at least 20, someone gave me a picture they took of me and I was surprised to notice a brown spot about the size of a quarter on my cheek. It’s not that I hadn’t ever noticed it before but if it was becoming significant enough to catch the eye in a photograph, I figured I should look into it. I delved into the American Medical Association’s Family Medical Guide, where I learned I was sporting what’s called a pre-cancerous skin spot caused by over exposure to the sun many years ago.

North End power outage illustrates tech dependence

A squirrel sent us back to the Stone Age on Monday morning. Yes, in this sophisticated society in which we are traveling to explore other planets, map the human genome and teach our children how to use computers before they can use the potty, a squirrel can still rock our world.

It's a zoo in Kingston — life-sized animal replicas are a draw for local business

  • Jun 4, 2008 at 3:00PM

The African Safari must be empty because all the animals have migrated to Kingston. Their new homing ground: brand-new business TJ’s Hotrods — so new, the official opening day is this Friday. It’s a peculiar situation, classic rides and life-size yard art, but it’s already garnered a lot of attention. Granted, life-size giraffes and elephants are hard to miss when driving on Bond Road.

I want my leatherback: retired Poulsbo teacher on quest to save rare turtle

  • May 21, 2008 at 1:00PM updated Jun 3, 2008 at 3:21PM

Even though leatherback sea turtles outlasted dinosaurs, they now struggle to survive us. In 2004, at the 24th annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Conservation and Biology, scientists predicted these turtles would be extinct in 10 years — six years from now. Greg Enright, a retired Pearson Elementary and Poulsbo Middle School teacher, and his Internet tourism company EcoTeach is trying to change that.

Finally! North Kitsap man gets call from a king

  • May 31, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 2, 2008 at 8:52AM

Waiting on a phone call is the pits, especially if the wait drags on for almost two years. For Richard Stoll, the waiting finally ended Tuesday. Sitting in his home at about 4:45 p.m., surrounded by cultural artifacts gathered from worldly adventures, Richard got the call and answer he was hoping for. King George Tupou V of The Kingdom of Tonga, the last surviving Polynesian monarchy, wants him to be the master planner of the capitol’s rebuild.
