Bainbridge High cheer team to help teens ‘Live Above the Influence’

  • Jul 19, 2008 at 9:00AM updated Jul 21, 2008 at 9:07AM

Summer’s a busy time for the Bainbridge High School cheerleading team. They recently returned from cheerleading camp at the University of Puget Sound, where they garnered four trophies and a “Best Tradition” plaque for their kick-off cheer, and qualified to participate in either the Florida Bowl or the Hawaii Bowl later this year. But their biggest effort at the moment will be at home, to help other teens stay “above the influence.”

Bainbridge Letters to the Editor | July 16

  • Jul 16, 2008 at 2:00PM

The Harbor Square Condo Owners Association is finishing off the job that the developers started: killing the historic oak they “saved.” By planting grass within the drip line of the tree and overwatering the grass growing on the soils compacted by the developer’s heavy equipment (they parked a trailer under the oak!), the tree is getting drowned. It’s tree waterboarding. They’ve been warned by renowned Bainbridge Island arborist Olaf Ribeiro but they claim they have no money. How much money does it cost to turn off the water? I’ll rip out the grass for free.
