Begin with the end in mind. That's what the principal said at the orientation for next year's incoming high school freshmen.
I go where the deals are when it comes to my weekly grocery shopping. My selection of store also depends on what I am in the mood for and what I want to buy.
Linda Joyce, former executive director of the Kitsap YWCA, left this life the way she lived it: With courage, strength, dignity and grace.
Here it comes, that time of year we all pine for during that dark period after the glow of the winter holidays has long gone. It is spring and I can’t wait to get started on those home and yard projects I have been mulling over all winter.
Crackin’ Crab for Chuck’s KIDS #8 was held on March 7 and was deemed a huge victory for Bremerton KIDS. All proceeds from this event go to this non-profit’s scholarship fund, which presents awards to Knight grads, many of whom have overcome life-altering circumstances.
OLYMPIA — In the political crevice between "hail Mary" and "hell no" could be found the state House Finance Committee on March 13 sitting in judgment of an attempt to rewrite a 25-year agreement between the state and its largest private employer, the Boeing Co.
Finding agreement in Olympia can sometimes be a challenge, but there's one issue both Democrats and Republicans should agree on this session: protecting children and families from harmful and unnecessary flame retardant chemicals. That's why we're sponsoring the Toxic-Free Kids and Families Act (HB 1174), a bill to eliminate toxic flame retardants from children's products and furniture.
School districts across the state could regain control of about $40 million in federal funding if the state House and governor agree to a bill passed March 11 by the Senate.
Before I begin, I’ll answer the question you will surely ask at the end: No, there is no video (that I’m aware of) of the moment my feet went out from under me and I landed on my backside, breaking my wrist. My children, however, would be happy to describe for you in great detail the whole thing, including how I said, “I’m really good at this” seconds before I fell.
Sixteen months ago, Gov. Jay Inslee signed into law the largest tax break any state has ever given a private company. It extended a bunch of sweet incentives to the Boeing Co. that could save it up to $8.7 billion in tax payments to the state in the next 25 years.
The definition of family travel has undergone significant changes and alterations over the years. For those of you who happen to be from my generation, growing up in the 1970s and 1980s, the family road trip in the loaded down car traveling miles upon miles to a destination that was never as exciting as you really wanted it to be.

California is in the midst of a fierce water war, a conflict that holds lessons for us in Washington state. In many ways, we are alike. Both of our states' populations are growing and we have some of the world's most prolific agriculture regions which require lots of water.
We saluted the USS Ranger (CV-61) as it departed Bremerton for Brownsville, Texas to be scrapped. We are saddened to witness the passing of this great old carrier. Sure, it was inevitable, like death and taxes (Ranger was decommissioned in 1993). But we can’t help but feel the absence, like we’d feel the absence of an old shipmate who’s passed away.
