So the story goes, the Rangvald Kvelstad Teacher of the Year Award Foundation was founded in the 1980s after several local school levies failed at the polls.

Carrying on the Iversons’ legacy | In Our Opinion

  • Feb 8, 2015 at 7:00AM

The North Kitsap Herald is entering its 114th year of publishing. The Herald was founded in 1901 by Peter and Josephine Iverson shortly after they arrived here from Norway via the Midwest.

One hundred fourteen years later, we strive to carry on the Iversons’ legacy. Like them, we work to produce a Herald that is a catalyst for change, a reflection of the community it serves. (And, we’re proud that the glass ceiling in our publisher’s office was shattered long ago).

Seed for rebirth of Viking Avenue | In Our Opinion

  • Jan 30, 2015 at 3:29PM

Olympic College Poulsbo, at College Marketplace, is poised not only to meet the higher-education needs of local residents, but to empower them in their career fields to meet the challenges this area will continue to have as it grows: How do we lessen our environmental impact as our communities grow? How can we enhance the health of our marine environment? How do we attract more businesses and create more jobs but do so in a “green” way? How do we enable people to move around our communities without relying on the car?
