When it comes to deciding on a new location for city hall, the Poulsbo City Council has been more persnickety than a lovestruck 12-year-old. In seven years we’ve seen three different land purchases and enough red tape to stretch from Poulsbo to the moon of Endor. And still the saga continues.

Rest in peace, Blaze

Bedwarmer. Plate cleaner. Ambassador. Teacher. Faithful companion through thick and thin. For nearly 14 years, Blaze the Fire Dog did it all at North Kitsap Fire & Rescue. He led a full life that began as an all-out fireman.

HOV lanes are OK, but drivers need some work

  • Mar 28, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Apr 26, 2008 at 11:42AM

It’s drivable but it sure isn’t enjoyable. Yet. After two years of massive traffic delays, flaring tempers and dreaming of The Promised Land, State Route 305 is nearly finished. On Jan. 28, the infamous HOV lanes — the right-hand lanes reserved for vehicles with more than one person in times of high traffic — made their debut. Drivers were skeptical. That skepticism was unwarranted.

Godspeed, Buccaneers

Be aggressive or get devoured. That pretty much sums up the attitude — and the entire season thus far — for Kingston varsity girls basketball. For a first year out of the gate, that the girls boast a 13-7 overall season and a 12-4 for league play is nothing short of incredible. It’s no surprise, either.

Can you spare a dime?

  • Mar 28, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Apr 26, 2008 at 11:42AM

At 80 years young, Wally Harrison thrives on making children happy. So much so that the Poulsbo resident has transformed his garage into a year-round Santa’s workshop of sorts, using his idle time to build wooden toy cars.

The Seattle Sounders are looking for a new home, and Poulsbo should roll out the red carpet for them. There’s confirmed rumors floating around the community that Seattle Sounders owner Robin Waite is currently in the design stages for a stadium that would seat 5,500 to 6,000 people. Waite is eyeing a spot on Urdahl Road at the northeast corner of Finn Hill Road.

We want answers, too

It’s often said that in times of crisis, time seems to move in slow motion. Memories are altered, rumors fly and the truth becomes a muddled casualty of consequence. That’s exactly what happened on March 12, a week ago today, when Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputies and the Kitsap County SWAT team congregated at the Peninsula Glen Apartments. The word was that North End burglary suspect Christopher Berg, 23, was inside one of the apartments.

Vaccinations aren’t mandatory for children to attend school

  • Mar 28, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Apr 26, 2008 at 11:42AM

Why do state and county officials who know that vaccinations are not required say the opposite? Why do respectable media sources such as newspapers and television repeat this misinformation? How can parents make informed decisions when their decisions are based on deceptive information?
