LIBERTY BANK’S UHLIG COMPLETES NATIONAL COMPLIANCE SCHOOL

Paul A. Uhlig, chief operating and compliance officer, Liberty Bank of Washington, recently completed the American Bankers Association National Compliance School held in Miami.

Considered the premier compliance program in the industry, Uhlig’s completion of the graduate level program with ABA is an indication of the type of services Liberty Bank intends to offer its clients when it opens later this year.

“The commitment to professional training by the senior staff and the board of directors at Liberty Bank is uncompromising,” said Uhlig. “The level of our commitment to compliance and knowledge of regulations is a direct reflection on the security our clients will have in banking with us.”

The ABA National Compliance School is the leading educational forum for bank regulatory compliance professionals. It is a professional program that develops technical skills and strategies for success in the regulatory compliance arena.

“Paul’s completion of this highly regarded program brings Liberty Bank of Washington one step closer to serving the Kitsap Community the way we envision,” said Bill Fogarty, CEO of the bank-in-organization. Scheduled to open to the public in early summer of 2008, Liberty Bank’s application as a new community bank is currently under review by the FDIC and the state of Washington.

WILD HORSE BBQ

UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP

The Wild Horse BBQ, located on 7th Avenue in Poulsbo, recently exchanged hands to Molly and Larry Busby.

Molly has worked at the restaurant since it originally opened more than two years ago.

Changes include breakfast served seven days a week, curbside service, a kid’s menu and a few changes to food items. Wild Horse BBQ will still offer catering.

For the tech and computer savvy, plans to install WiFi are under way. Also, TV sets will be installed so sports enthusiasts can watch their favorite teams over dinner.

CAT’S MEOW IN NEW LOCATION

In January, owners Sandy Carlson and Joye Grunden of The Cat’s Meow Antique Mall thought they were ready to retire after 15 years in downtown Poulsbo.

But one month later, with the addition of two new partners, Rae Clare and Marcia Irwin, they changed their minds, instead revamping the store with a new location right across the street.

Now, located at 18911 Front Street they said their store is bigger and brighter. More than 20 vendors display specialty collectibles, pottery, jewelry, glassware, prints, pictures, lighting, furniture and garden accessories.
