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.

Bainbridge's Farmstock Festival — it’s all in the family

  • Jul 30, 2008 at 2:00PM

Art and music festivals on the island tend to be family friendly. And whether by happenstance or design, this year’s Farmstock Festival of the Arts also turned out to be a family affair.

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.

Fun in the summer sun

  • Jul 30, 2008 at 12:00AM

August is full to the brim with events and activities. First on deck is the Great Peninsula Future Festival in Port Gamble from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Aug. 2, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 3. Park at the Hansville Park and Ride (behind Albertson’s) and Kitsap Transit buses will deliver you right to the festival site. Admission to the festival is a suggested $5 donation. If you do choose to park at the festival site, the parking fee is $5. Nearly every environmental group in Kitsap County will be there (including WSU Extension and UW SeaGrant). Entertainment abounds. Kids will find more than enough fun things to do. And adults will find a plethora of speakers, lots of hands on demonstrations and ideas for sustainability, and even an area to shop for one of a kind items. If you want to get away from the crowds for a short time, you can even take a walk on the beach led by our newest Kitsap volunteers, the Beach Naturalists.
