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.

Weeding out problems in the garden | Column

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.

Changing Scene Theatre's Summerplay: Keeping tradition alive

  • Aug 4, 2008 at 10:52PM

When in the business of theater and feeling a budget crunch from a slumping economy that has hit both the box office and production costs, the no-brainer decision would be to stage a summertime, feel-good fan favorite in hopes of bolstering the ticket count. The Changing Scene Theatre Northwest, along with many other small theater troupes around the county, are most undoubtedly feeling that crunch these days. But the Changing Scene is staying true to it’s ethos and readying for the premier of Summerplay 2008: A festival of new works, slated for Aug. 8-23 in the upper room of the Panda Bay Inn on Kitsap Way in Bremerton.

Jewelry designer Connie Castellano helps the summer Studio Tour sparkle

  • Aug 6, 2008 at 1:00AM updated at 9:47AM

To convey the true weight of her work, Connie Castellano has clients hold out a hand. Then she drops in a bauble. “People hold out their hand, and they go ‘whoa,’” she said. Because Castellano’s jewelry is heavy, as she believes fine jewelry should be. And the fact that her jewelry literally carries weight means that she’s sticking to her artistic and philosophical vision about how it should fit into the wearer’s life.
