Seattle novelist studies meaning of life through dog's eye view

  • Jun 24, 2008 at 12:44PM

Imagine living life like a game show contestant who’s been put inside one of those soundproof isolation boxes. You can see and hear most everything that’s going on around you, but the game show host won’t turn on your microphone. So you live out your life, day by day, watching and even involved in the game but never getting the chance to fully engage. That’s how Enzo feels. The book is called “The Art of Racing in the Rain.” It’s a metaphor for life, narrated by this old philosophical dog, Enzo, who’s figured out the meaning of life through the rules of the race track.

Bainbridge author's first book 'Oxygen' out July 1

  • Jun 24, 2008 at 12:43PM

Inside the operating room, inside humanity The patient is prepped for surgery, laying horizontal on the operating table, staring up into a pinpointed vastness of bright light. The anesthesiologist readies the syringe and flushes the drug into the IV. She watches the patient’s face and posture slacken as they drift out of consciousness, and everything fades to black ... . It’s an intimate moment, says Dr. Marie Heaton, a moment of transferred power. But what if the patient doesn’t wake up? Heaton’s an anesthesiologist in Bainbridge authoress Carol Cassella’s debut novel, “Oxygen,” in bookstores July 1.

Ericksen Ave.-Hildebrand Lane connection severed by owners

  • Jun 24, 2008 at 3:11PM

Earlier this year, a City Council committee tabled the long-running debate over whether to connect Ericksen Avenue and Hildebrand Lane. Barring resumed talks, the two roads will remain plugged indefinitely. It appears the same can now be said about the informal connection – the driveways of several adjoining businesses used as a shortcut by many motorists – which was closed temporarily last week, and is set to close for good soon, according to property owners.

Bainbridge Rotary hopes to eclipse '07 auction total of $280K

  • Jun 24, 2008 at 3:09PM

Go ahead. Try to explain the Rotary Auction to someone who’s never experienced it. According to Bainbridge Rotary President and former auction chair Joanne Ellis, doing so is nearly impossible. For one thing, the event – a frenzied week of activity that culminates this weekend in a gargantuan garage sale – is always changing, always evolving.

An open letter to members of the Bainbridge Island City Council: You have a difficult job ahead of you. As you do it, you should expect a lot of citizen disappointment and, naturally, the resulting flood of criticism from your constituents whose pet city projects no longer make sense.

Bainbridge’s loss of Ron Konzak runs deep | Sally Robison

  • Jun 21, 2008 at 12:00PM updated Jun 24, 2008 at 12:03PM

The first time I met Ron Konzak was 20 years ago. The Chamber of Commerce sponsored a naval tour of the island. A tour boat providing dinner and a dance floor sailed through our bays. (It could have stayed at the dock the entire time because drinking, eating, dancing and having a fine time were the main attraction.)

It was a tough year for the Bainbridge baseball team. Injuries to numerous players – including its top returning pitcher in Colin Feldtman – and a lot of bad luck kept the Spartans from making a serious charge to the playoffs. They started the season 5-1 and were ranked high in the 3A polls. But then came a long losing streak that dropped Bainbridge out of the rankings and the playoffs altogether.
