Bainbridge turns to geothermal heat amid high energy prices

  • Aug 9, 2008 at 1:00AM

With a steady groan, a six-inch diameter mud drill began chewing into the yard of a Grand Avenue home this week. The drill would grind through layers of sediment, pulverize rock and perhaps pierce several aquifers before reaching 300 hundred feet below ground. It wasn’t drilling for water, it was mining for heat.

Colin Kimball likes to take chances. The Bainbridge Island native has to contain that impulse a bit these days because he’s got a family. But there’s no doubt he wants to turn his creativity into big bucks, which means he’s occasionally going to take a walk on the wild side.

Bainbridge city officials need to communicate

  • Aug 5, 2008 at 4:38PM

The City Council meeting on July 30 was right out of an old movie about small-town controversy and simultaneously a wonderful expression of democracy at work. If we can all recollect it in that fashion, it will go a long way toward cooling some of the emotions and providing some perspective about the issues themselves.

A reading vacation is nirvana in an easy chair

  • Aug 5, 2008 at 4:37PM

As I write these words, I am on the cusp of starting an extended vacation. I’d call it a “well-deserved” vacation, but I don’t know if the available evidence would support that claim. Continuing an ancient and time-honored tradition that I started last year, I went to Eagle Harbor Book Co. the other day to pick out a little vacation reading material. I already have in my possession an unopened copy of Junot Diaz’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao,” which I received as a birthday gift from the woman who is my wife, which gives me a big head start on my holiday reading list.

Bainbridge: Slow down, save a life

  • Aug 5, 2008 at 4:37PM

There’s not a lot of room for error on island roads this time of the year. Or anytime of the year, for that matter. The speed limit may be 55 mph on State Route 305 and 35 to 40 on the island’s main arterial roads, but the increase in the number of both vehicles and bicycles during the summer months behooves all of us to reduce speed for safety’s sake.

'Sound of Music' star to appear at Lynwood Theatre's sing-a-long night

  • Aug 4, 2008 at 10:55PM

Imagine yourself in a dimly lit movie theater, re-watching “The Sound of Music” for the umpteenth time, only this time its on the big screen and the entire audience is singing along. “The hills are alive, with the sound of ... ,” an off-key chorus crescendos. Then, someone would typically yell from the back row — “Shut up! You’re ruining the movie!” But not at the Lynwood Theatre’s special sing-a-long night.

A relatively new pesky weed, Birdsfoot trefoil, Lotus corniculatus, has been cropping up all over Kitsap County lately. The common name comes from the seed heads which look like tiny bird feet (even through the feet have six to eight toes). It began its rampant spread about three years ago, but it’s promising to be as noxious as some of our official “noxious weeds.” The ironic fact about this plant is it has been used in many states for deer fodder and forage for cattle and other grazing animals. It’s a forage plant that does not cause bloating. Birdsfoot trefoil was imported from Europe. Native peoples also harvested the seeds for food. It thrives in areas where rainfall is more than 20 inches a year and when temperatures are cooler. Does that sound like our area? Yes, indeed, it does.
