It’s been 20 Bloomin’ years

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM

Two decades gives a nonprofit endeavor a good, long time to evolve. And from humble beginnings, Bainbridge in Bloom has blossomed.

Bainbridge is in bloom, two decades and counting

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM

It’s an exciting weekend up ahead for avid gardeners. The long-anticipated 20th anniversary Bainbridge in Bloom garden tour will be July 11 through 13 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. To celebrate the event’s longevity, they’ve rolled back ticket and event prices. More information can be found at the Bloom Web site,, or by calling the Bainbridge Island Arts and Humanities Council (BIAHC) at (206) 842-7901. Tickets are available at many of our local nurseries. The site also lists the locations for various food and refreshments interspersed at several locations this year.

Feeling upbeat, not beat up, about this year’s celebration

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM

Emotions were running high and the tension was so thick you could cut it with a knife at the staging area of the Bainbridge Annual Grande Olde Fourthe of Julye Parade last Fridaye afternoone. Anxious paraders milled about anxiously and anxiously glanced at their watches, all waiting anxiously for the parade to begin. One sign of the rampant pre-parade nervousness was the long line outside the two staging area Porta Potties located on the corner of Madison and Wallace Way. The line outside these Porta Potties was among the longest I saw all day, second perhaps only to the line in front of the booth offering free Obama stickers and the queue in front of the American Marine Bank ATM on Winslow Way.

Question is: To torture or not to torture?

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM

You have to wonder about the morality of politicians, bureaucrats and Americans of all types who are strongly against torture when it’s done to us while believing the end justifies the means when the U.S. tortures a declared enemy to gather information.

The virtues of Beethoven and riverside meditation

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM

Lying reclined on a picnic blanket with my hands beneath my head, staring up past the treetops where the ambience of a grand piano meshed with the sunshine and singing birds in the afternoon sky, I knew I’d found a getaway.

Bremerton themes First Friday around 4th, Bainbridge delays till July 11

  • Jul 2, 2008 at 3:00PM updated Jul 7, 2008 at 3:08PM

As the first Friday of July falls squarely on July 4 this year, art galleries in Bremerton have focused their exhibits quirkily around the Independence Day theme, and will be debuting with receptions that day. Galleries on Bainbridge, including Bainbridge Arts and Crafts which recently received a $1 million endowment that made headlines, will be waiting it out, hosting their first Friday parties during the second week July 11 due to the nuttiness of the island’s Grand Ole Fourth celebration.

Movie nights atop Bremerton J.C. Penney debut July 11

  • Jul 2, 2008 at 3:00PM updated Jul 7, 2008 at 3:07PM

Ron Sher and Co. plan to host movie nights atop the old J.C. Penney building each weekend this month, starting with ‘Top Gun’ July 11. The glow of city lights in downtown Bremerton envelope the old J.C. Penney building at night. But it seems almost a lonely glow.

Lynwood Theater plays host to the 'Show People' of yesteryear

  • Jul 2, 2008 at 3:00PM updated Jul 7, 2008 at 3:07PM

King Vidor’s 1928 silent film satire “Show People” reminds me of something like those “Scary Movie” flicks of today. Those features (more like DVDs as they don’t even come out in theaters most of the time anymore) poke fun at the whole scary movie genre with spoofs on all the contemporary blockbusters and incredibly, oft intentionally, bad acting. Vidor’s piece is much more of a beautiful relic with an all-star cast from the days of the silent film — featuring Marion Davies and William Haines, with cameos from everyone including Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin and all the greats.

From the group that basically brought you the Kingston Skate Park itself comes The Kingston Sk8 Rollick.

Of Bainbridge editors and politics as usual in 1950

  • Jul 5, 2008 at 11:00AM updated Jul 7, 2008 at 11:34AM

In the spirit of the Fabulous Fifties theme in yesterday’s Grand Old Fourth celebration, let’s revisit a time that, in some ways, doesn’t seem all that different from today. A political advertisement titled, “Walt Woodward on Bazookas and Typewriters,” ran in the Bainbridge Review on July 27, 1950, a few days after publisher Woodward decided to seek the First District seat in Congress. The Republican hoped to win the primary and then run against the incumbent, a Democrat he apparently considered a scourge on the face of the political landscape.

Cyber market links Bainbridge growers to residents hungry for local food

Her business, Farm Courier, uses a virtual farmer’s market and a cheerful white delivery truck to bring local produce to island doorsteps. Ashen hopes her business will provide a new venue for residents and producers to build a relationship over food.

Devoted tango artist heads to Bainbridge for concert

  • Jul 5, 2008 at 9:00AM updated Jul 7, 2008 at 10:27AM

The bandoneon may be a musical cousin to the accordion. But as Bertram Levy describes it, when Argentine Tango began to gel in the early 1900s, some felt the accordion was too happy for tango; it didn’t possess the necessary darkness. A renowned musician who began in folk but has spent the better part of a decade devoted to tango, Levy will bring his Tangoheart quartet to Bainbridge next weekend, the first program in this year’s series of Bloedel Reserve summer concerts.

United Arab Emirates humanitarian visits family on Bainbridge

There is an Islamic tenet that teaches practitioners to care for not just the neighbors beside them, but for neighbors seven doors in every direction. It was that idea — the obligation to help neighbors no matter what their walk of life — that inspired Bainbridge native Sharla Musabih to become a follower of Islam.
