POULSBO — The first-ever Celebration Trees to be planted in Little Norway was news that city staff applauded last month. But those cheers turned to jeers this week #when one of the trees was stolen over the weekend.
You’ve really got to hand it to the folks at the Austurbruin. They know how to get things done. They know how to get the community involved to improve their neighborhood and most of all — they know how to accomplish all this and have a good time doing it.
KINGSTON — The response three young Kingstonites received from their neighbors on Barrett Road during a self-organized money drive for Poulsbo Fishline was bigger than expected.
PORT GAMBLE — Members of the Kingdom of An Tir converged upon the hills of the former mill town, changing it from a quiet community to an elegant and chivalrous step back in time last weekend. The alteration was embraced with open arms.

POULSBO — When North Kitsap Little League began 50 years ago, the field that would eventually become Snider Park was nothing but stumps.
POULSBO — Call it more of a reunion than a first introduction. Walking through the halls of the Silverdale Red Lion this week, Poulsbo resident Emily Jensen scanned faces in the crowd for Debra Rosacker.

PORT GAMBLE — The handsome knights and lovely ladies of the Middle Ages will be welcoming outsiders to step back in time with them next weekend. With rapier combat, archery contests and lavish courts sprawled all over Port Gamble’s majestic fields, people of today will be able to take part in ancient traditions — slightly modified by modern technology.
Gone. The men and women we honor each Memorial Day are gone. They died so that others could live.
POULSBO — Andy Tolman used to think that golf was a simple game, but the impression didn’t last long.

POULSBO — An aerial photo of Lindvig Way taken in the late 1960s shows the broad, clear channel of Dogfish Creek flowing under a bridge and meeting in a healthy estuary with the headwaters of Liberty Bay.
POULSBO — Unlike Sampson, perhaps hair is the antithesis of Eric Perkins’ source of power. In 2001 facial hair was the lutefisk wolfer’s downfall, but the crowd-pleaser returned the next year clean shaven and took home the championship.
KINGSTON — A member of the North Kitsap Fire & Rescue medic and firefighting team has stepped down from nearly 13 years of service with the department for medical reasons, but may continue helping others around the world.
