West Sound Wildlife Shelter on Bainbridge preps long-term care facility for birds

  • Jun 11, 2010 at 12:00PM updated Jun 16, 2010 at 2:41PM

A pelican, the bird emblazoned on the Louisiana state flag, is drenched in oil. The thick muck hanging and dripping from its stained and scarred feathers may be the lasting visual legacy of the tragic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The spill has left more than 1,000 birds in need of care. Should birds face the same kind of contamination in the Puget Sound they had nowhere to go. West Sound Wildlife Shelter, a Bainbridge-based animal care facility, is preparing itself to care for birds damaged by oil and other pollutants. The nonprofit organization is in the process of creating a long-term care facility for waterfowl, the only one on the west side of the Sound. The facility will aid birds that are injured, poisoned or contaminated by other materials. It can also function as a care facility should a large oil spill occur in the Puget Sound.

  • Jun 11, 2010 at 1:00PM updated Jun 14, 2010 at 11:56AM

I had, for my entire life, thought that I lived in a country where governmental entities adhered to the moral concepts on which this country was founded. And specifically, a governmental entity that recognizes that they have a moral obligation to honor the wishes of a benevolent citizen who passed on to the public a gift of land for the establishment of a park (not a wildlife refuge).

Strawberry Plant Park will address Bainbridge community’s wishes | Letters | June 11

  • Jun 11, 2010 at 1:00PM updated Jun 14, 2010 at 11:52AM

In response to the June 4 letter, “City is going to ruin a great local park,” Strawberry Plant Park is not “an internationally known historic site.” The history of this site was largely unknown to even islanders until its history was shared during the park planning process. To state that it is internationally known is hyperbole.

Bainbridge nonprofits may need to reinvent themselves | In Our Opinion | June 11

  • Jun 11, 2010 at 1:00PM updated Jun 14, 2010 at 11:20AM

One of the negative effects of a recession on an altruistic community such as a Bainbridge Island is that as local, state and federal monies dry up there’s a correlative increase in fundraising pressure to keep the established events and institutions afloat. And, of course, while competition escalates among those seeking help, people have fewer dollars to give despite the need being greater.

Bainbridge water utility can be transferred to KPUD without election or bidding process

  • Jun 4, 2010 at 7:00AM updated Jun 10, 2010 at 4:23PM

An opinion prepared by Inslee Best, Bainbridge Island’s contracted law firm, presumes that it would be legal for the city to transfer its water system to Kitsap Public Utility District without an election or bidding process. Former interim City Manager Lee Walton asked Inslee Best attorney Rod P. Kaseguma last month to review KPUD’s proposal given to the city. The proposal was general in nature and meant as a starting point for further discussion between the city and KPUD, which this week began a more in-depth, “due diligence” evaluation of the city’s water system.
