I write in response to the column by Adele Ferguson in the July 12 edition of the Central Kitsap Reporter.

Climate change is indeed a fact

I write in response to the column by Adele Ferguson in the July 12 edition of the Bremerton Patriot. Although it is now the general consensus among scientists that the world is experiencing a climate change and that human activity is contributing to it, Adele Ferguson continues to follow her ideological commitment to no climate change.

Just how free are we?

If someone bought a home next to me and I went over to inform them that I am the local tax collector and they owed a tax on their property and they would have to ask permission to build anything on it, they would have to get my permission. And if they had any water or spotted owls they were really in trouble. What do think they would say? Well, this is exactly what our state and federal organizations do and we would lose our homes if we failed to comply. Now who do you think owns your property?

North Kitsap Herald Letters to the Editor | July 16

The leaders and members of Camp Fire USA, Kitsap County would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who participated in the June 20 Day of Caring at Camp Niwana in Port Orchard. We especially would like to thank the Kitsap Credit Union Employees, the crews of the USS Nevada and their Commanders and Tim Lundberg of Parker Lumber.

West Sound fire merger should enable more taxpayer involvement

The recent story concerning the proposed merger and formation of West Sound Fire & Rescue left me with some concerns. I think that most citizens would agree that our fire departments do a great job as they are currently organized. Therefore, any changes, mergers or restructuring should have a singular goal of cost savings for the citizens before they are even considered.

Obama’s all about flip-flopping

After securing the presidential nomination by the Democratic Left and moving toward the political center, Obama has reversed himself on everything except abortion, homosexuality, raising taxes and opposition to off-shore drilling for oil. To date, his flip-flops include welfare reform, de-criminalization of marijuana possession, NAFTA, Cuba trade embargo, gun control, immunization of telecommunication firms involved in FISA, troop withdrawal from Iraq, faith-based charities and God knows what next. His liberal media backers cleverly describe this as “re-calibrating” his positions.

Land donation adds to Poulsbo’s Fish Park | North Kitsap Letters to the Editor

I want to applaud the recent land donation of two parcels from an anonymous donor to the Great Peninsula Conservancy (GPC), see the June 11 Herald. In turn, Great Peninsula Conservancy has donated this land along Dogfish Creek at the head of Liberty Bay to the city of Poulsbo.

Kitsap’s ‘TeenScreen’ not the silver bullet its billed as

I am writing in response to a May 28 article, “Saving Lives One Teen at a Time.” John Perona from Kitsap Mental Health shared his goal to screen Kitsap teenagers for mental health issues with the intention of providing “intervention.” According to the article, this goal would be accomplished by the implementation of a program called “TeenScreen,” a combined effort between the school districts, Kitsap Mental Health and the Kitsap County Health District.

How much longer will Kitsap residents jump through state DOT’s hoops?

The Washington State Department of Transportation has now formally joined all other government departments in recognizing that, since they are unable to complete their assigned basic mission, WSDOT will refine its primary responsibility to that of social engineering.
