  • Apr 22, 2016 at 10:54AM

When we read this story in the Port Orchard Independent, a fellow Sound Publishing newspaper, we couldn’t help but notice the difference between how this case was handled and the handling of the suspected DUI case involving a Kitsap County sheriff’s sergeant last fall.

My View | Passenger-only ferry debate rife with myths, misconceptions

  • Mar 31, 2016 at 12:00PM updated Apr 1, 2016 at 8:16AM

Only four in 10 Kitsap County residents have heard of Kitsap Transit’s proposed passenger-only ferry service connecting Bremerton, Kingston and Southworth to downtown Seattle. If voters approve a sales-tax measure this year, all three routes would be in service by 2020. As envisioned, the service would cut at least by half the time it now takes to reach downtown Seattle using existing transit options.

Port boundary expansion good for Poulsbo | In Our Opinion

  • Mar 31, 2016 at 4:21PM

Attract more businesses to Poulsbo. Create new jobs. Find a solution to erosion on Anderson Parkway. Improve the health of Liberty Bay. Improve boat, plane and customer facilities at the Port of Poulsbo. Give yourself a voice in port matters. Spread taxpayer investment in the port across the entire city, not just a portion of it. That seems a good return for an investment of $75.

Question of the Day

Poulsbo Mayor Becky Erickson says a tree should be planted for every tree cut down. Would you support a no-net-loss tree ordinance?
