History faces the ax

  • Apr 13, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 2:45PM

Activists hope to save cherry trees in the way of BHS expansion. Through several seasons, school officials have carefully tended the financial, logistical and political soil in which the Bainbridge High School renovation project has taken root. Vacation of the old 200 building – set to be replaced with a structure twice its size – has already begun. The district will select a contractor early next month, and construction on the estimated $20.6 million renovation will begin in June. But as many eagerly await the project’s approaching bloom, others have turned their attention to the blossoms outside, on the hillside below the doomed 200 building. Rooted there are a cluster of cherry trees, donated to the school more than 70 years ago by the Bainbridge Island Japanese-American community, and scheduled to be removed to make way for the new building.

It’s no romper room, as kids are learning the physics of motion. As classical music plays serenely in the background, Kids Discovery Museum visitor Kelly Koken concentrates on sending a golf ball down a steep, narrow track toward two waiting cylinders. The object of the game, called “Hit the Bucket,” is to sink the ball into one of them. It sounds simple, but she’s having no luck. She offers several explanations before throwing up her hands. “I’m an engineer,” she said, “and I’ve spent a half hour on this.”

  • Apr 18, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 2:44PM

Heels of Thunder showcases a week of toe tapping. When Heels of Thunder first got together, its members launched a research effort. Not to find out how their chosen dance style was evolving worldwide, and not to locate teachers or recruit new members. They were trying to figure out what to wear. As it turns out, anything goes in clogging, which means costume choices were open for debate. Founder Mary Jensen said that discussion can get heated when a group of women “of a certain age” start to lob wardrobe commentary at each other ranging from “I don’t do short sleeves” to “That shows too much chest.”

Caught between two ages

A historic home at 292 Ericksen faces demolition to make way for development. Like its six elderly neighbors, the house at 292 Ericksen has history on its side. It sits, proud an prim, atop a green patch of grass at the southern tip of the changing street, as it has since 1907, when it was built by a worker at the Hall Brothers shipyard. Since then it has watched Winslow sprout up around it, and though it now houses commercial space instead of shipwrights, the structure has thus far eluded the bulldozer. But as plans move forward for Peach Place, a new mixed-use development slated for the land on which it sits, the house at 292 Ericksen may soon be discarded like a peach pit. “This is historic Winslow,” said Sarah Lee, chair of the city’s Historic Preservation Commission, lamenting the building’s potential demolition. “If we had a perfect world, we would be able to save every single historic property on the island.”

What do you think of that?”

James Wellman isn’t shy about his passion. “I love to think about religion, do religion, talk about religion,” he said. “Basically, I’m a fanatic.” Fanaticism, however, isn’t what comes to mind as the author, professor and ordained Presbyterian minister discusses his research, writing and teaching, which center on a thoughtful exploration of the interrelatedness of church, state and culture.
