The driver in a fatal vehicle v. pedestrian collision in Indianola July 4 fled the scene. If you have information on the driver or the car, suspected to be a silver sedan with lower front-end damage, call Deputy Darren Andersson at 360-337-4634.
The Washington Youth Academy in Bremerton celebrated its second largest graduation class on June 20 with 140 students. The largest class was the previous one at 144. Students volunteered 7,809 hours of community service to the Kitsap County community, valued at $67,000, according to Washington Youth Academy Director Larry Pierce. Service projects ranged from restoring a Sept. 11 Memorial in Kitsap County to landscaping and event support. Each cadet was also trained to be part of a Community Emergency Response Team, the first time all of the cadets in a class received the disaster management training.
Kitsap Transit scheduled a series of public meetings to let residents give input on the proposed Wheaton Way Transit Center in Silverdale and on the North Viking Park & Ride in Poulsbo. There were public meetings in Poulsbo City Hall, two hours later in the Silverdale Beach Hotel, and two hours after that in Port Orchard City Hall.

This was my first Relay in Kitsap County.
