There’s nothing wrong with second place. And good sportsmanship and fair play are more important than a trophy. Those are two of the lessons that Suquamish Elementary School fifth-graders took away from the Seahawks’ loss in the Super Bowl. And they shared the lessons they learned in a letter from their teacher, Kristy Dressler, to Coach Pete Carroll and the team.

  • Feb 6, 2015 at 3:03PM

North Kitsap senior Calvin Dennis was dominant Feb. 3 with 19 points and a half-dozen blocks, nearly willing his team to a win at Sequim’s Rick Kaps Gymnasium.

Olsen’s positions are ‘outdated’

  • Feb 6, 2015 at 1:54PM

Mr. Olsen now wants to take us back to 1915, a time when men made all the decisions for women (“No on Senate Bill 5026, yes on Senate Bill 5289,” page A4, Jan. 30 Herald). He has lost several elections for his outdated positions.

Downtown Poulsbo — the saga continues

  • Feb 6, 2015 at 1:50PM

I thoroughly agree with Ryck Thompson’s assessment of downtown Poulsbo (“Something is wrong in downtown Poulsbo,” page A4, Jan. 9 Herald). We fell in love with Poulsbo and moved here in 2011 to escape the big-city rat race. And we strongly believe in supporting local businesses, even if we can get what we want online at a lower price. But we don’t understand why so many stores have been closing.

Carrying on the Iversons’ legacy | In Our Opinion

  • Feb 8, 2015 at 7:00AM

The North Kitsap Herald is entering its 114th year of publishing. The Herald was founded in 1901 by Peter and Josephine Iverson shortly after they arrived here from Norway via the Midwest. We’re proud of their groundbreaking legacy of leadership — Peter served as the second mayor of Poulsbo and as state senator from 1913-18; Josephine was a journalist at a time when newsrooms were largely the domain of men. One hundred fourteen years later, we strive to carry on the Iversons’ legacy. Like them, we work to produce a Herald that is a catalyst for change, a reflection of the community it serves. (And, we’re proud that the glass ceiling in our publisher’s office was shattered long ago).

Gov. Jay Inslee wants to change the cancer risk rate used to set state water quality standards from 1 in 1 million to 1 in 100,000. That is unacceptable to the Treaty Tribes in western Washington.

Governor’s climate-control proposal faces business opposition | 2015 Session

  • Feb 3, 2015 at 9:22AM

In an effort to curb climate change while raising money for transportation and education, Gov. Jay Inslee is proposing a statewide cap on carbon emissions that would require polluters to buy credits to continue polluting at today’s levels. Carbon prices would start at $12 a ton and would bring in an estimated $1 billion in the program’s first year. The main idea behind cap-and-trade markets is to create a financial disincentive to emit greenhouse gases.

  • Feb 3, 2015 at 9:32AM

As a 22-year-old vegetarian skiing and sailing instructor, Beverly Elmer isn’t the type of person you’d expect to have heart problems. “I was lying down in bed and turned to Weylin and said, ‘Baby, oh god,’ and clenched my chest,” she said. Her memory stopped moments before, so she could only recall what she’s been told about the event. “I guess that’s when my eyes rolled into the back of my head.”

  • Feb 1, 2015 at 8:22AM

As Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll hoisted the Lombardi Trophy last season, the culmination of a remarkable four-year rebuilding job since Carroll and general manager John Schneider took over, it was hard to imagine that not one but two teams had more than a decade earlier determined that Carroll wasn’t fit to run an NFL franchise.
