Bainbridge vandalism may put an end to tradition

  • Jun 14, 2008 at 9:00AM updated Jun 17, 2008 at 9:07AM

How did this happen? Did anyone see it coming? With the arrest of one member of the Class of 2008 Friday morning in connection with “Paint Night” (more like “Paint Week”) vandalism, and word of more arrests on the way, we are left to wonder what made this specific group cross over the line that had been loosely drawn by previous practitioners of this long island tradition. Why them? Why now? Now what?

Want to help Bainbridge students? Support reading programs

  • Jun 14, 2008 at 8:00AM updated Jun 17, 2008 at 9:02AM

(The following is adapted from remarks made last week at “Reading Leading,” an event held by the Bainbridge Schools Foundation to celebrate island authors and benefit school district reading programs. I omitted the part where I pointed out that a copy of “Skeletons from Our Closet” would make an excellent Father’s Day or graduation present. And to the very gracious staff at Wing Point where the event was held, I apologize again and want to reiterate that I have no idea how all that silverware got into my briefcase.)

In 2006 a group compiled their findings into “Still Sexy After All These Years? The 9 Unspoken Truths About Women’s Desire Beyond 50.” Since publishing the book, the Kirkland-based Leah Kliger has taken on the speaker and workshop circuit, including a stop this Wednesday afternoon at the Bainbridge Commons titled, “The Real Truth About Intimacy and Sexuality for Women Beyond 50.” Through the women-only workshop, with its emphasis on give-and-take discussion rather than lecturing, Kliger hopes to help women dispel both mysteries and myths, and reveal sexuality in a light that many may not have considered.

Bainbridge costs make charity house-building tough

  • Jun 11, 2008 at 10:00AM updated Jun 12, 2008 at 10:14AM

Habitat for Humanity, perhaps one of our society’s more effectual programs created to help people help themselves, has had very little success on Bainbridge Island. In recent years it has turned donated land into two houses built in the Fort Ward area and another at Hidden Cove, but the island’s skyrocketing land values have made it difficult for the Kitsap County nonprofit to afford the type of ambitious projects it prefers.

Bainbridge buzzing over Blossom Hill soil swap

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 2:36PM

Like the hole that marks their origin, the mountains of dirt – atop the triangle of land bordered by Fletcher Bay, Bucklin Hill and Lynwood Center roads – are growing. The dirt will eventually be loaded into dump trucks and hauled a short distance south to a new resting place, beneath the Blossom Hill development taking shape on the hillside above Lynwood Center. Simply put, the project is a soil swap: Blossom Hill is getting about 2,200 dump truck loads of workable sand in exchange for a larger amount of less desirable glacial till that will go back into the ground at the borrow site.

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 2:36PM

David Fricke knows the soaring price of fuel has been frustrating for all island drivers this year. “The fuel has gone sky high as everyone knows,” he said.

Bainbridge food bank buying from local farms needs donations

  • Jun 10, 2008 at 2:38PM

Every Tuesday, five boxes of fresh produce are hand-delivered to the food bank at Helpline House by Chris Llewellyn, owner of Serendipity Organic Farm in Quilcene. It’s only one of her 40 stops on the island that day, but it’s the one that reaches out to the most, well, mouths, then empty stomachs. Helpline has started providing produce to its more than 170 weekly clients through a program called Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), which are subscriptions to food grown on sustainable farms such as Serendipity. To pay for the $440 weekly delivery of produce, Helpline is seeking donations from businesses and individuals.

Even though the conditions aren’t ideal, the members of the Bainbridge Junior Rowing team still head out for practice on Eagle Harbor.
