A decision by the City Council between two pressing projects – Winslow Way and Wing Point Way – will have to wait until August 13.

Winslow Way needs to be done right

  • Jul 19, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 21, 2008 at 9:08AM

The current budget shortfall for the city means that very few of the capital projects will get funded this year. To me the most important project is the big dig – the utilities and infrastructure replacement in downtown Winslow. Downtown is the central diamond in the jeweled ring that is Bainbridge Island, an exception to the trend of small downtowns fast disappearing in our car-oriented society.

But their biggest effort at the moment will be at home, to help other teens stay “above the influence.”

Bainbridge Letters to the Editor | July 16

  • Jul 16, 2008 at 2:00PM

The Harbor Square Condo Owners Association is finishing off the job that the developers started: killing the historic oak they “saved.” By planting grass within the drip line of the tree and overwatering the grass growing on the soils compacted by the developer’s heavy equipment (they parked a trailer under the oak!), the tree is getting drowned. It’s tree waterboarding. They’ve been warned by renowned Bainbridge Island arborist Olaf Ribeiro but they claim they have no money. How much money does it cost to turn off the water? I’ll rip out the grass for free.
