I want my leatherback: retired Poulsbo teacher on quest to save rare turtle

  • May 21, 2008 at 1:00PM updated Jun 3, 2008 at 3:21PM

Even though leatherback sea turtles outlasted dinosaurs, they now struggle to survive us. In 2004, at the 24th annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Conservation and Biology, scientists predicted these turtles would be extinct in 10 years — six years from now. Greg Enright, a retired Pearson Elementary and Poulsbo Middle School teacher, and his Internet tourism company EcoTeach is trying to change that.

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.

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.
