Letters

Kitsap newspapers have published many letters opposing Kitsap’s involvement in the Puget Sound Regional Council, and few supporting it. As a result, a lot of misinformation is going unanswered. Unfortunately, the role of PSRC is poorly understood.

Change Washington can believe in: Dino Rossi

I would like to ask this of all citizens of Washington state, “Do you feel safe in your community?” “Do you feel safe walking in the evening in our parks and downtown areas?” I’m not a supporter of Barack Obama, but he may have it right when he says, “We need change we can believe in.”

Some Bremerton red light-runners should file suit

Throughout April and May, the vast majority of red-light camera tickets were written for running the red light in the southbound right-turn only lane at the corner of 16th and Warren. At least one traffic light camera reviewer believed the absence of a turn arrow light could possibly constitute a free right turn for this lane. Seeing an enormous revenue stream drying up, the city took action to prevent this from happening. In what is akin to first issuing expired parking tickets, and then installing the parking meters, Larry Matel, P.E. (Pedestrian Exterminator?)–Managing Engineer, Transportation issued a memo on May 27 to Judge James Doctor, Lt. Pete Fisher and Mike Meacham.

U.S. government doing whatever it can get away with

I have to ask Dean Jenniges just why we are in this Iraq war. Too much Fox News! What threat did they pose other than the Israeli agenda? That is why they hate us! They were not responsible for 9/11! Bush was given his marching orders and he followed their orders to the tee.

A hazard to all

In celebration of our nation’s birthday on the Fourth of July each year, we’ve been brainwashed into thinking that it’s patriotic to set off fireworks. We need to rethink this very dangerous practice.

Can we wave it too much?

Is it possible to wave the flag too much? Provided, of course, that you wave it with integrity. Is it possible to study Lincoln or Shakespeare too much? Is it possible to read the Bible too much? I believe not. These are great examples of inspiration and strength. We are not waving our flag enough. Not nearly enough.

How much more will taxpayers put up with?

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.

Central Kitsap’s Anderson Landing Preserve still needs work

We should all be pleased that Commissioner Brown visited Anderson Landing Preserve, one of the best examples in the county of how volunteers get the job done and provide the park facilities we all want. Just a few notes about the Commissioner’s report.

Silverdale man sad to see Goodwill go

I’m not sure what motivated some to say to Goodwill you have to leave and find a new place. I find it very sad that Goodwill had to leave Silverdale so the mall could get more parking for customers.

Liberal judges take too many liberties with Constitution

Judicial actions by democratically appointed liberal judges are slowly tearing apart the Constitution and this great nation. Democrats and liberals for decades have constantly assaulted the first amendment, second amendment and marriage. Their judges convolute and haze every word of the constitution to fit their political agenda.

Loss of pee wee godfather big for Silverdale

Last week, Silverdale lost an important and integral member of the community. Cornelius “Pete” Ross Jr. died June 10 at the age of 75, but his memory will live on through Ross Field and the hundreds of kids who play on the field each year. Mr. Ross and his wife of 55 years, Dona, were steadfast in the creation of the ballfields.

What a sad commentary your anti-fireworks for personal use was. It’s just another symptom of how out of touch your editorial writer was about the reality of why we celebrate the Fourth of July.
