"If you're one of those people who feel strongly your school district should spend money and make decisions, now's your chance to have a say-so. The North Kitsap School District is hosting a series of community forums at each school over the next few weeks (the forums for Vinland and Breidablik will both be held at Vinland). The forums are designed to get your reaction to a series of facilities recommendations developed by a task force of citizen volunteers. We'll also be running a series of articles in the Herald that highlight what some of the issues are with the school district's facilities. "

"POULSBO - There's an old saying in the business: If the shoe fits, wear it. This saying may very well have dual meanings for Brian Ballestrasse of Lemolo and could also read: If the shoe business fits, buy it. So, when Sluys Shoes was put up for sale, the seven-year veteran manager from Nordstrom's simply couldn't pass the opportunity up. Ballestrasse had visited Little Norway before and said, I always really liked the town and community here. While searching for a home here though, he was forced to make the dreaded Edmonds-Kingston commute each morning. Although traffic backups for the ferry are notorious, Ballestrasse said they weren't unbearable in his case. At least I was going in the right direction, he explained with a smile and a shrug. "

"POULSBO - Gray skies and rain gave way to warm weather Wednesday afternoon as officials from Olympic College and the Suquamish Tribe made a path through scrub brush and felled trees at the proposed campus site on Poulsbo's northwestern edge. It was a good omen. The sun is coming out, Olympic College president Carl Jonietz observed quietly. This is auspicious. Arriving at the chosen spot, new Suquamish Elder Gene Jones led the group through the ritual blessing of the land. Six candles were lit, one placed on the ground, the others distributed to members of the tribe. "
Wednesday's gathering of Suquamish Tribal members and officials from Olympic College in Poulsbo was just another sign that two different cultures can grow in understanding of one another without trampling on each other's traditions.

"POULSBO - Megan Watson just couldn't do it. Watson, in her first year as a teacher at Suquamish Elementary, found that one of her old teachers, Fran Shields, was now a colleague. Shields said, You can call me Fran. I was like, 'Uh ... no.' Watson said. Watson is just one of many North Kitsap-area graduates to find herself working alongside her childhood friends, neighbors, and teachers. Watson's tie to the North Kitsap School District is even stronger than most; her grandfather, Dick Endresen, is the school board president. "
