A small, young team is confident it can contend for a state trophy. With a much smaller group than in year’s past, the Bainbridge girls swim and dive team may not have the best dual meet record this season or be considered the favorites for a 3A state title.

  • Sep 3, 2008 at 12:00AM

We were asked to spread the word to all local gardeners and community groups to grow fresh produce to donate to Kitsap’s food banks and soup kitchens.

Coming soon to a theater near you

  • Sep 3, 2008 at 12:00AM

Some adults want to be reminded of the good times. Others just want to solidify the relief felt when they survived high school. Either way, a documentary headed to Port Orchard’s independent theater, The Orchard, is taking us back to the time when awkwardness ruled, there was homework to be avoided and our social status was the most important thing on Earth.

Who’s to pay for Winslow Way?

  • Aug 30, 2008 at 12:00AM

Many of us who live on the island are being affected by rapid cost of living increases for food, gasoline and utilities. Given this added pressure to our household budgets, one would think that Bainbridge Island’s city administration would promote a capital facilities plan that would take those increases into consideration. For example, as part of a pragmatic approach to allocating limited revenue dollars to maintain city services, our Public Works Department could repair the two sections of Winslow Way sewer pipes that are leaking, rather than replacing them. Fix the leaking pipes, yes; buy all new pipes, no.

Need a bike? Give a bike

Only on Bainbridge Island? Well, not necessarily, but the island seems to be a breeding ground for people who get involved in community service. Learning to care for others and to give back to community is an extremely rewarding endeavor, especially if the recipient is young and impressionable. Take, for example, the experience of Maria Mason and her son, Adrian, islanders who have enriched the lives of impoverished youth in the West African nation of Togo, simply by providing them bicycles.

In Cambodia, during the Khmer Rouge regime of the late ‘70s and ‘80s, life was cheap. A young couple with two toddlers were sent as slaves to the rice fields, along with many others, and labored each day as part of the government efforts to rebuild the country’s eleventh century system of food production. Life was hard.

The Review’s editorial in the Aug. 23 edition (“”Council needs to make some big decisions”) is a real jaw dropper. The editorial derides as “bellowing,” and “prone to emotional outbursts” the three council members who have vocally challenged the Kordonowy administration’s spending practices. Having thus nuked the dissident threesome, the piece then magnanimously invites them to try “a little civility,” an admonition to which I’m sure all three will accede once they pick themselves up off the floor.
