From Christmas light slowdowns to run-ins with Bainbridge Island’s “Lawnmower Man,” for North Kitsap residents whose daily grind includes not only traffic along Highways 104, 305 and 307 but ferry trips across the Puget Sound, getting to and from work is job in itself. That’s their problem, right?
Fear mongers who point to arguments like the theory of global warming as to why we all should recycle and drive hybrids haven’t been to North Kitsap recently.

Big snows, freezing temperatures and whatnot.
The North Kitsap student athletes who made their voices heard at the decision hearing for the Athletics and Activities recommendation for NK secondary athletics next year were most graciously accepted by the school board — albeit disregarded with a motion to approve. Students representing three of NK’s athletics teams spoke to the board on the importance their Viking teammates have meant to them.
