Blast from the Past

Nothing was as telling as the excitement Levi Hernandez had on Saturday as he participated in his first Soap Box Derby race. That’s why he was the lead in the Sunday story we ran about the local derby.
The races nationally are a seven-decade tradition. Locally, it’s just been since 2003 that they’ve started letting kids roll down hills again. It looked like a lot of fun.
They’re looking for more kids to participate here in Kitsap County. Sandy Smith said the Silverdale Sunrise Rotary has more cars than drivers.
If nothing else, bid on a chance to ride in Oil Can race (It’s a fundraiser that gives adults to chance to drive grown-up-sized racers down the hill.) to see if you should have any qualms about letting your kids race.
The local group has a Web site at SoapBoxDerbyKids.
