BREMERTON — The North Kitsap girls’ volleyball team knew they had their work cut out last week, needing to win all three games to advance to the Narrows League Tournament.
My first play was a little known musical called, “Alice in Oz.” I was 9 years old and played a jitterbug. That “acting bug” has been with me ever since, and I’ve performed onstage (and sometimes off) whenever the opportunity has arisen. So, of course, I leaped at the chance to be in “The Laramie Project.”
POULSBO — North Kitsap High School junior Mallory McAfee believes she is not just acting when she performs on stage. She likes to think that she can fill the shoes of the person she is portraying.
POULSBO — In their final drive, the Kingston Cavaliers lost their quarterback to an injury, had four penalties against them within the 15 yard-line, and nearly lost possession with a fumble.
KINGSTON — A 16-year-old Spectrum Community School Student died of a self-inflicted gun wound Oct. 29 in his Indianola residence, law enforcement officials said. A medical aid crew and Suquamish Police responded the 911 call, which was made at 4:15 p.m.
POULSBO — Senior Nic Stearns scored the go-ahead touchdown with less than five minutes to go and the North Kitsap defense held Central on its final drive as the Vikings escaped with another close win, 28-21.
It’s that time of year for the spooky ghosts and wee goblins of North Kitsap to come out of hiding for their annual haunting among the communities. From carnivals and music to tunnels of terror, everyone from Harry Potter to Winnie the Pooh shouldn’t have a problem finding a sweet trick or treat Oct. 31.

POULSBO — Elected positions across North Kitsap will be decided by voters during the general election Nov. 4.
Poulsbo area voters will join residents across the county in determining the fate of Kitsap Transit’s Proposition 1. If passed, the measure will raise sales and the Motor Vehicle Excise Tax to support a new fleet of Kitsap Transit foot ferries.
Four city council positions and one Port of Poulsbo seat are also up for grabs — although only three of the five are contested races.
Incumbents Mike Regis and Jim Henry are unopposed for Poulsbo City Council positions 1 and 3 respectively.
For Poulsbo City Council position 2, incumbent Jackie Aitchison faces former councilwoman Connie Lord. Aitchison has served on the council since 1991. Lord previously held council position 7 from 1998-2001.
Incumbent Jeff McGinty faces Elizabeth Hutley in the race for Poulsbo City Council position 4. McGinty has held his position since 1991 and has been Deputy Mayor since 1999. Hutley has been a Poulsbo resident for about one year and previously worked in Marine Science and hospital management.
For the Port of Poulsbo, sitting commissioner Glenn Gilbert has been challenged by Gary Hoskins for position 2. Gilbert was appointed to fill a vacancy on the commission in 2000 and then ran for and won the unexpired term in 2001. Hoskins is currently the Greater Poulsbo Chamber of Commerce interim director and a former officer of the Historic Downtown Poulsbo Association board.

Ergonomics are an important part of the workplace, as any worker who has a repetitive job can attest, but should Labor & Industries’ be able to enact stricter regulations at the expense of the jobs themselves?
