POULSBO — A bill proposes raising at least $167 million a year for public schools by imposing a 2 percent tax on millionaires. Poulsbo Mayor Becky Erickson says she is "leaning toward" hiring Port Orchard Police Chief Alan Townsend as the next chief of police. A Poulsbo family says the city has an obligation to replace a washed-out culvert that has cut off vehicle access to their property. The Sami flag flew over Poulsbo City Hall on Wednesday, honoring the indigenous people of northern Scandinavia and Russia's Kola Peninsula.

Those are the top stories in the Feb. 8 North Kitsap Herald, available now at newsstands and in stores.
