We seemed to have survived March with all it’s madness that showed up in so many varieties this year. Is it just me, or does lunacy seem particularly abundant?

This past week was Spring Break for our island schools. Many island families headed south for a little R&R at warm weather destinations such as Hawaii, Mexico or Palm Springs, while others headed off to cooler climes for a little spring skiing. Other families hit the road for that annual high school ritual – the College Tour Road Trip.

You, the editor of the Review, altered a letter to the editor by my husband, Captain James Olsen, published Saturday the 5th by adding my name as a parenthetical to the body of that letter.

The pressure is on once again to connect Ericksen Avenue with Hildebrand and in the process destroy a delightful public park.

SR-305 needs more police presence to slow traffic

  • Apr 12, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 9:07PM

It’s surprising that there aren’t more bicycle-vehicle collisions on Bainbridge Island’s seven-mile stretch of State Route 305 when considering the thousands of vehicles and hundreds of two-wheelers that race to and fro the ferry terminal each day. Collisions are common on a busy road that is generally an accident looking to happen, but the last major bicycle-vehicle accident occurred nearly four years ago when a car driven by a Bremerton woman – distracted by a cell phone – struck and threw an island man 85 feet. Chris Stanley was seriously injured but miraculously lived to tell about it.

The glory of downsizing your life

Recently, people rush up to me on Winslow Way with questioning but uneasy looks on their faces. “Are you really happy in your condo?” they ask.

An island life lived ‘the flexible way’

Art Koura, almost 90, misses Bainbridge Island. In 1919, his parents, Otohiko and Hatsuko Koura, strapped on their infant son and came here to pick strawberries. They liked it so much that a year later they left their Seattle home to try farming on the island. Six years later, they had as many children and seven acres on High School Road. The farm was successful, and Otohiko became president of the Community Association from 1936 to 1941.

Let me get this straight: Bainbridge Disposal now wants to charge me even more to recycle, while cutting the service in half? What do they think they are, an airline? In Seattle, curbside recycling is mandatory; on Bainbridge, it’s punitive. Why not make the people who don’t recycle pay more?

Ericksen’s no throughway

  • Apr 16, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 9:06PM

A recent Review editorial suggesting that Ericksen Avenue may eventually become a throughway fails to recognize the history of the street, the merits of local history and cultural tourism, the popularity of the pedestrian walkway, the special and historic trees along the lane, and the irregular mismatched intersection of Ericksen Avenue and Bjune Drive at Winslow Way.

Insults should rise above simple name-calling

  • Apr 16, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 9:06PM

There was a great brouhaha in the media recently over a couple of alleged insults directed at national political figures. An advisor to Barack Obama was forced to resign from her position in his campaign when it was reported that she had referred to Hillary Clinton as a “monster.” And long-time Clinton friend and advisor James Carville came under substantial criticism when he referred to Bill Richardson as “Judas” for having forsaken Hillary and thrown his support behind Obama.

Community Help protect the shoreline

  • Apr 16, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 9:02PM

All of us on Bainbridge Island depend on healthy marine shorelines and the near-shore environment, whether for bird watching, beachcombing, fishing, shellfish harvesting, or shoreline stability for our homes and other structures. Together we need to come to a common understanding of the importance of a healthy, stable shoreline from an ecological and a human perspective.

State Rep. Christine Rolfes likes to say that while some politicians want to change the world, her goal is to merely revamp Washington State Ferries. In other words, her political world, since it has been her primary concern since being elected two years ago.
