England, Jara deserve shot in November; Jara best for position

Letters

  • Mar 22, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:29PM

Last week, the people on the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas won a victory as we got a fully-funded study for 4-year baccalaureate degrees in our area.

This crazy world keeps getting crazier every day

  • Mar 22, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

A 47-year-old Sammamish woman was at her boyfriend’s house in Bremerton playing a video game when there was a knock on the door about 8 p.m.

Casualties of war

  • Mar 22, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

Wednesday marked the fifth anniversary of U.S. combat operations in the sands of Iraq, and to date almost 4,300 brave men and women have made the supreme sacrifice for freedom. That number will probably eclipse the 4,300 plateau by Easter Sunday, but hopefully it won’t reach the 5,000 mark.

Confessions of an Independent with Republican tendencies

  • Apr 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

“If you are an Independent, then I am the Angel Gabriel,” writes Earl P. Otto of Bremerton.

Thank you voters for helping your schools

  • Apr 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

As I write this second column for the Patriot, it is spring vacation in the Bremerton schools. As such, it is a relatively quiet time of the year. Our facilities and support staff are busy at work, “spring cleaning” and completing punch list items for the new high school and middle school additions. Nonetheless, without students, the schools are very quiet, indeed.

Kudos to the Kiwanis

  • Apr 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

Local Rotarians and Lions have invested heavily in the city parks bearing their affiliations in Evergreen Rotary Park and Lions Park throughout the years, and today the Kiwanis Club will follow suit as its members gather at Kiwanis Park, located between Fourth and Fifth streets in West Bremerton, for the first step in a long-term overhaul of the park.

GOP united to battle Democratic foe

Infused with new blood and wiser after years and scars from intra party battling.

The reporter/editor dilemma

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

For the past nine months the majority of the opinions, which have appeared in this space, have largely been my own with the exception of the public office endorsements, which were made by the Patriot’s editorial board. Until now it hasn’t been difficult to fill this space with a kudo or a well-organized complaint, but it’s been a real exercise in walking the finest of fine lines between being a reporter and an editor.

City administration welcomes SKIA discussion

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

Recently, there has been a lot of discussion about a potential annexation request to the city of Bremerton from the Port of Bremerton and some adjoining property owners for specific parcels located in the South Kitsap Industrial Area (SKIA) which is designated as an Urban Growth Area (UGA). I want to take this opportunity to express the position of the city administration on this subject.

Supporting those who sacrifice for all of us

  • Apr 19, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

Recently, hundreds of people participated in community outreach events sponsored by the Washington Department of Veteran Affairs in Kitsap County. These events were held to honor our veterans for their service and focused on how we can support military families and veterans. I’m pleased that this year’s Legislature advanced these priorities.

County Dems make Obama toast of town over Hillary

  • Apr 19, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

“Yes we can!” filled the air at Olympic High School Saturday, as foot stomping, chanting Kitsap Democrats gave their hearts and votes to Barack Obama as their next president, leaving Hillary in the dust.

A home of their own

  • Apr 19, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

Sometimes history is downright ugly. In fact, sometimes it’s horrific, tragic, cruel and inhumane, but nonetheless it is reality. Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman uttered the immortal words “War is hell” during the Civil War, and for the prisoners of war in the Far East combat zone during World War II those words could not have been more true.

News you can use from Olympia

  • Apr 26, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

As one of the state legislators working for Bremerton residents in Olympia, I appreciate the opportunity to communicate with readers of The Patriot on a regular basis. In the upcoming months I may cover topics such as ferries, public education, health care, public safety and economic development which we spend a great deal of time debating during each legislative session. But today I’d like to share with you some information about new state laws or programs that might be of interest to you.

One last thank you to the great Ellen Craswell

  • Apr 26, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

The first column I ever wrote about Ellen Craswell was in August 1976 when she was running for the Legislature in the 23rd district and handing out sponges with her campaign slogan on them, “Let’s Clean House.”

Finally something to talk about

  • Apr 26, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 1:28PM

After feeling a hot breeze blow out of the south across the Sinclair Inlet or perhaps it was the high pitched whine of crying over spilled milk, the city of Bremerton can now epitomize what country crooner Toby Keith termed “A little less talk and a lot more action.”
