I was sad to see Rep. Derek Kilmer, D-Bremerton, coming out against free speech, selectively supporting who and how campaigns are funded. The First Amendment was not written in order to be fair in the eyes of one political party. The First Amendment was written for people we disagree with, not for those we agree with.
Community Events, April 2014
I am disappointed with the fragmentation of course offerings within our own school district. From Kingston High School’s get-go, there has always been a district preference for North Kitsap High School and related Poulsbo amenities. The list is endless: The battle we fought for field lights, the “regional stadium” (to use NKSD’s doublespeak) that says Vikings all over it, but not even a small “Buccaneers,” the types of elective offerings (in particular, the music, art, and CTE offerings), and perceived tighter staffing (larger class sizes), are all areas Kingston has ended up with the short end of the stick.
When David Foote, executive director of the Kitsap County United Way, first approached all of the Kitsap service clubs to join together and coordinate a countywide food drive for their respective local food banks, many were enthusiastic and began planning right away for a fall 2013 drive. But responding to North Kitsap Fishline's concern that their food inventory typically dwindles in the first quarter each year, Poulsbo Rotarians and Lions decided to plan their local event for the first weekend in April, when the shelves are the most bare.
What do most of the drivers in Poulsbo not understand about the law of yielding to people in the crosswalk?
It’s unfortunate KCN is only a monthly publication, but we have chosen to live in small communities. I suppose I could get out of the house and attend Gordon Elementary PTA meetings if I would be admitted, not being a Gordon PTA member.
