Poulsbo Place II: Seattle comes to town?

  • Mar 28, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Apr 26, 2008 at 11:43AM

Homeowners in the quaint Poulsbo Place development are hot under collar, and with good reason. At neighborhood meeting Thursday night — appropriately held at the Poulsbo Fire Station — they vocalized their frustrated awe as Central Highlands Builders (CHB) unveiled plans for new Poulsbo Place II divisions. Tempers were flaring because, ironically enough, they think the expansion for Poulsbo Place II doesn’t look like it belongs in Poulsbo at all. Hence the frustration.

Brrr! North Enders have endured some really, really cold temperatures this week. On Monday morning, we awoke to our neck of the woods doing its best impression of a frozen tundra. We bundled up, huddled up and, much to school children's delight, school was cancelled.

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.

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.

  • 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.

BREMERTON — Poulsbo native Amy Stadshaug is royalty once again.

Raelena Rodriquez’s office is a hopping place these days. The client services advocate for the North Kitsap Fishline finds her time is in shorter supply as rising gas prices drive more people into her office. While a bigger chunk of the Average Joe’s budget is shifted to their fuel tank, some are forced to turn to local food banks to put meals on the table.
