Commissioners shouldn’t give up control

  • Apr 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:21PM

The Kitsap County Commissioners are elected to act on behalf of the citizens of this county. They have relegated their responsibilities to an unelected layer of quasi government, the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC). Yes, they are elected and have the authority to govern for the people residing in Kitsap County. They should not give their power to PSRC.

Kitsap newspapers have published many letters opposing Kitsap’s involvement in the Puget Sound Regional Council, and few supporting it. As a result, a lot of misinformation is going unanswered. Unfortunately, the role of PSRC is poorly understood.

Fight the man — by buying fresh Bremerton bread!

  • Jun 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:21PM

Fantastic wonderful breads are now baked in Bremerton. If you want to fight commercial industrialization and conquer the world yourself, put down that plastic bag and the encased loaf of chemicals and buy a loaf of life-afirming bread.

Change Washington can believe in: Dino Rossi

I would like to ask this of all citizens of Washington state, “Do you feel safe in your community?” “Do you feel safe walking in the evening in our parks and downtown areas?” I’m not a supporter of Barack Obama, but he may have it right when he says, “We need change we can believe in.”

Some Bremerton red light-runners should file suit

  • Jun 21, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:21PM

Throughout April and May, the vast majority of red-light camera tickets were written for running the red light in the southbound right-turn only lane at the corner of 16th and Warren. At least one traffic light camera reviewer believed the absence of a turn arrow light could possibly constitute a free right turn for this lane. Seeing an enormous revenue stream drying up, the city took action to prevent this from happening. In what is akin to first issuing expired parking tickets, and then installing the parking meters, Larry Matel, P.E. (Pedestrian Exterminator?)–Managing Engineer, Transportation issued a memo on May 27 to Judge James Doctor, Lt. Pete Fisher and Mike Meacham.

I have to ask Dean Jenniges just why we are in this Iraq war. Too much Fox News! What threat did they pose other than the Israeli agenda? That is why they hate us! They were not responsible for 9/11! Bush was given his marching orders and he followed their orders to the tee.

In celebration of our nation’s birthday on the Fourth of July each year, we’ve been brainwashed into thinking that it’s patriotic to set off fireworks. We need to rethink this very dangerous practice.

Can we wave it too much?

  • Jun 28, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:20PM

Is it possible to wave the flag too much? Provided, of course, that you wave it with integrity. Is it possible to study Lincoln or Shakespeare too much? Is it possible to read the Bible too much? I believe not. These are great examples of inspiration and strength. We are not waving our flag enough. Not nearly enough.

How much more will taxpayers put up with?

The Washington State Department of Transportation has now formally joined all other government departments in recognizing that, since they are unable to complete their assigned basic mission, WSDOT will refine its primary responsibility to that of social engineering.
