'Mad as hell' grandmother: Children need to have more respect | Letters | May 7

  • May 6, 2010 at 4:00PM updated May 7, 2010 at 10:15AM

“Unbelievable” was my first thought. I was shopping in the vegetable section of my favorite grocery store and had to step back because two giddy, laughing girls about 5 years old were leaning over a basket of fresh garlic and licking the bulbs. One mother said, “If anything falls on the floor be sure to pick it up.” That was when the girls began licking the lids and necks of the small lime bottle. I blurted out, “That’s disgusting.” The mother leaned over and spoke to the girls, who replied, “We weren’t licking.” The mother said, “Well, you were so close, it appeared to the lady that you were licking.”

Skeptic-turned-supporter: Bainbridge needs a new art museum | Letters | May 7

Nothing to show for Bainbridge's storm water studies | Letters | May 7

  • May 6, 2010 at 4:00PM updated May 7, 2010 at 10:12AM

Instead of actually cleaning up storm water, the City Council recently approved yet another $215,000 consultant contract to simply monitor a stream and pull water samples. Although having far more storm water staffing then any city under 25,000 in Washington State, the city’s Public Works Department claimed they were too understaffed to do the sampling. So ratepayers will now be paying $148 an hour to a consultant to take water samples and send it on to a testing lab. It’s all utility money... the city just raises the rates every year.

Commercial and investment banks are too closely intertwined | Letters | May 7

  • May 6, 2010 at 4:00PM updated May 7, 2010 at 10:12AM

Richard Beckman’s letter this past week (“Big banks to blame”), blamed our country’s big banks and their excessive bonuses for bringing us to the “brink of another great depression.” The problem with such general statements is that usually they state the obvious, don’t fully understand the issues and paint all the culprits with the same brush without suggesting ways to prevent the problem in the future.

City of Bainbridge, Winslow not interested in protecting John Nelson's values | Letters | May 7

  • May 6, 2010 at 4:00PM updated May 7, 2010 at 10:09AM

I am sorry that I was off Island and unable to attend the public program to “Honor John Nelson” held on April 25. I was the director of the Bainbridge Island Park and Recreation District for 18 years between 1980 and 1998. I think that Friends of Cannery Cove are on the right track regarding John Nelson. The City of Winslow and now Bainbridge has, in my opinion, never had John Nelson’s interests in mind from day one.
