Bainbridge’s loss of Ron Konzak runs deep | Sally Robison

  • Jun 21, 2008 at 12:00PM updated Jun 24, 2008 at 12:03PM

The first time I met Ron Konzak was 20 years ago. The Chamber of Commerce sponsored a naval tour of the island. A tour boat providing dinner and a dance floor sailed through our bays. (It could have stayed at the dock the entire time because drinking, eating, dancing and having a fine time were the main attraction.)

4 Bainbridge baseballers land on All-Metro squad, despite season gone wrong

  • Jun 21, 2008 at 9:00AM updated Jun 24, 2008 at 11:43AM

It was a tough year for the Bainbridge baseball team. Injuries to numerous players – including its top returning pitcher in Colin Feldtman – and a lot of bad luck kept the Spartans from making a serious charge to the playoffs. They started the season 5-1 and were ranked high in the 3A polls. But then came a long losing streak that dropped Bainbridge out of the rankings and the playoffs altogether.

Winslow coping with $3.6M shortfall

  • Jun 21, 2008 at 8:00AM updated Jun 23, 2008 at 8:49AM

As Winslow shifts into summer, many of the season’s usual fixtures are already in place. But at least one thing is conspicuously absent from the summertime landscape: the hanging flower baskets that once adorned downtown. Certainly flowers haven’t lost their appeal, said Public Works Director Randy Witt. But in a wilting economy, they’re among the many items the city has chosen to trim. Due to a shortfall in revenue, the city this year will spend $3.6 million less on operating expenses than leaders had anticipated when they began crafting the budget in December. A great deal of attention has been paid to the impacts of the shortfall on the city’s ability to complete some high-profile capital projects.

Ride ferries when they want you to

  • Jun 21, 2008 at 12:00AM

Washington State Ferries representatives will be in town Monday to discuss operational and pricing strategies, which consist primarily of taking a new approach to an old problem that can be expected for most commuter runs – congestion in peak periods and underutilized vessels and facilities in off-peak times. They want to accomplish this by tweaking the pricing system and installing a systemwide reservation system.

Bainbridge's Jerry Maguire of books shows authors how to sell

  • Jun 17, 2008 at 2:24PM

For Sharlene Martin, here’s the fun part about being a literary agent: “I wake up every morning, and my job is to make dreams come true.” That said, Martin won’t wave a magic wand to get an author’s book published, no matter how good it is. In fact, she expects a lot of Cinderella-esque legwork – the kind the princess undertook before her transformation – from every writer she represents. Publishing, she believes, is as much about commerce as it is about art. A scant month ago, Martin left the Los Angeles-based offices of Martin Literary Management in the hands of staff and opened a satellite office here on the island.
