Tapping the power of one

  • Aug 2, 2008 at 12:00AM

  • Jul 30, 2008 at 4:00PM

What does it matter to the dead, the maimed, the widowed, the orphaned, whose homes and work are destroyed, whose cities lie in ruins, whether the mad destruction is done in the name of brutal dictators or in the name of noble defenders of peace and democracy?

Bainbridge Island Review Letters to the Editor | July 30

  • Jul 30, 2008 at 4:00PM

It’s a disgrace that it took the FDA over three months to trace the salmonella saintpaul outbreak to jalapeno peppers, and to finally only be able to “warn” us to not eat jalapenos and serranos on July 21. (Thanks to food industry lobbyists, the FDA lacks mandatory recall authority.)

Bainbridge dialoge contentious, but involved

  • Jul 30, 2008 at 3:00PM

Some islanders would like everyone in the community to get along and to settle their disagreements with civility and calm. That would be nice, but it isn’t always going to happen on an island that has a recent history of heated dispute over its makeup and the direction it has taken. However, while the dialogue has been contentious at times, generally it has been healthy since Bainbridge Island’s voters decided on Nov. 6, 1990, to annex all of the island to Winslow, which a year later became the City of Bainbridge Island.

The life aquatic of the bivalve is fascinating

  • Jul 30, 2008 at 12:00AM

Here’s something: Did you know that the sedentary lifestyle of your average bivalve has caused it to develop a very simple nervous system, a nervous system so simple that it does not even include a brain? As those of you with access to Wikipedia know, bivalves are aquatic mollusks with two-part symmetrical shells. Popular bivalves include our friends the scallop, clam, oyster and mussel. Although scallops can swim, most bivalves spend their lives firmly attached to flat surfaces or buried in the sand, feeding themselves by siphoning off passing particles, reproducing asexually, and getting by just fine without a functioning brain. The more I learn about bivalves, the more they remind me of my high school friend Reuben.

Q&A on proposed CAO revisions

  • Jul 30, 2008 at 12:00AM

The City of Bainbridge Island is considering revisions to the Critical Area Ordinance to better protect the health of Puget Sound. After hearing concerns from some of our neighbors and friends, we believe myths are being spread that need to be corrected. Below are some of the common questions, along with answers based on what’s stated in the draft and existing regulations, as well as on conversations with city officials. We think it is important to help people understand the draft ordinance because the proposed regulations are not a threat. They represent a really positive step toward preserving and rehabilitating the Sound.
