"POULSBO - Megan Watson just couldn't do it. Watson, in her first year as a teacher at Suquamish Elementary, found that one of her old teachers, Fran Shields, was now a colleague. Shields said, You can call me Fran. I was like, 'Uh ... no.' Watson said. Watson is just one of many North Kitsap-area graduates to find herself working alongside her childhood friends, neighbors, and teachers. Watson's tie to the North Kitsap School District is even stronger than most; her grandfather, Dick Endresen, is the school board president. "

"HANSVILLE - In the 21 years he has owned the Cadillac, Dennis Johnson of Poulsbo has put more than 20,000 miles on it. Not many miles for your average automobile, but quite a few for a 1913 Cadillac that predates Prohibition. Johnson's Cadillac was one of the more than 60 present at the Hansville Classic Car show, put on by the Hansville Fire Auxiliary. The classic Cadillac was Johnson's second. He owned a 1916 (A 16, he calls it) but wanted one with a four-cylinder engine. So he set out looking for a 1913 and found one in Seattle. "

"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. "
