Thanks to Silverdale snow-removal crews

  • Jan 3, 2009 at 4:00PM

We certainly have had our weather over the past few weeks! I join the community in extending our thanks to the state and county road crews for their tireless efforts in clearing and sanding our roads. It can be discouraging to work all night plowing snow off the roads only to have them covered up the next day, but unless you stay on top of it, the roads really become a mess.

Thanks for a great year, Kitsap County

  • Jan 3, 2009 at 12:00AM

My journey of being Miss Kitsap 2008 has been nothing short of amazing. I couldn’t have done it without the overwhelming love and support from the people of Kitsap County. I sincerely thank you for giving me the most memorable year that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Nothing will ever be able to come close to my experience as being your Miss Kitsap. Many times I have gotten the question, “what has been your favorite part of being Miss Kitsap?” and I can’t pin it down to a single part. I have loved every minute of it and feel so blessed to have been able to do it. My senior year in high school I began on my journey into the wonderful world of pageantry and it has made me the woman I am today. After my first time running for Miss Kitsap (also my first pageant ever), I moved to Eastern Washington and ran for Miss Spokane. Something didn’t feel quite right over there and I realized I wanted to carry the title of Miss Kitsap and represent the county I have grown up in and has given me so much. So, I came back home and put my mind toward winning the job of Miss Kitsap. My hard work paid off and my dream came true!
