    Joe Kennedy, who coaches football at Bremerton High School in Washington State, has been suspended for praying after a Friday night football game that Satanists had threatened to protest. A student had invited The Satanic Temple of Seattle to attend the game to protest the school’s tolerance of the coach’s prayer, and to force the Bremerton School District to clarify its policy. Although Kennedy does not instruct or encourage any students to join him when he prays, the school board had ordered him never again to pray in public. …

    A group of robe-wearing, incense-spreading, self-described Seattle Satanists plans to attend a Washington state high school football game on Thursday, in the latest turn of a controversy over a Christian coach’s postgame prayers. Bremerton High School senior class President Abe Bartlett said Wednesday that he was one of a few students who invited The Satanic Temple of Seattle to attend the game. He called it an effort to get the school district to clarify its policy: While officials last month asked assistant coach Joe Kennedy to stop praying at the 50-yard line, he has continued the practice and threatened a...
  • More Navy leaders relieved of duty after rowdy port visit

    Drunken behavior during a port visit has led to the dismissal of another Navy commander and three other top officers, days after the leader of the USS Stennis carrier group was sent back to Bremerton. The Navy hasn't said much about why they've removed Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette from his command October 27. They are conducting an internal investigation involving his judgment. The Navy is offering more explanation about the commander of the USS Vandegrift, which is a frigate based in San Diego that was built at the Todd Shipyards. This frigate was not with the Stennis carrier group. Vandegrift...
  • Democrat Congressman heckled/booed at UW commencement for "self-serving speech" "pompous puffery"

    Self-serving speech I was in attendance last Saturday at the commencement activities at the University of Washington. I was both embarrassed and angered by the pontification and obvious self-importance of Rep. Dicks. Never could I have imagined a commencement speaker at a major university being booed and heckled while speaking to the graduates. Then again, I could never have imagined anyone giving such a self-serving, self-glorification speech as he did. A speaker at such an event is supposed to inspire the graduates who are now going out into the world to seek their own destiny. They did not come to...

    BREMERTON, Wash. -- Medics are treating a third grader who was shot at Armin Jahr Elementary School.

The deputy, who has five years on the force, meant to fire a Taser, not the gun, Wilson said. The man, who is believed to be in his 20s, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was...

    BREMERTON — Many in a small crowd that gathered at a waterfront park in this Navy town yesterday wore red, white and blue and carried signs proclaiming "United We Stand" and "Peace Through Strength." They assembled to show their support for President Bush, for the troops and, if necessary, for military action against Iraq. While those at the rally stopped short of saying they wanted war, they made it clear that if diplomatic efforts fail to gain concessions from Saddam Hussein, they will readily support any action Bush proposes. "Saddam Hussein is a street thug and there's no question...
