Boats with people living on them add character, revenue and security to the port and merchants of Poulsbo.

It’s that time of the year again — graduations, proms, and end-of-the-school-year parties. It’s also the time of year when firefighters see far too many motor vehicle collisions and lives lost. Most often, these are tragedies that could have been avoided.

In defense of traffic roundabouts

  • Jun 19, 2015 at 9:00AM

I love roundabouts. They are an efficient means of avoiding full stops where they are not needed, i.e. four-way stops. Please note that no one seems to understand how a four-way stop works. When you are in a roundabout, there is no doubt what is going on. Get in and get out.

  • Jun 18, 2015 at 3:56PM

  • Jun 20, 2015 at 5:00PM
