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.

NKSD should save pool from ending up in the drink

  • May 28, 2008 at 3:00PM updated May 29, 2008 at 12:20PM

Being able to dive into water over my head — and having the confidence that accompanies that — is the most empowering feeling I’ve ever experienced. The thought that others might be robbed of that experience because the community’s pool might not survive the next round of North Kitsap School District budget cuts makes me feel like there’s a steel ball in my gut. It’s that very same steel ball that used to be there when I thought about swimming.

I’ve read and heard a lot of complaints about the infamous Silverdale intersection and how it doesn’t make any sense. Actually, in comparison to the one mile of State Route 305 between Viking Way and the bottleneck at the top of the hill at the Lincoln Hill intersection in Poulsbo, the Silverdale intersection is a stroke of genius.
