Apart from a Coast Guard sticker on a window, there isn’t much left of Wicca to suggest it was once afloat. The cedar-shake houseboat, towed from Eagle Harbor to Port Gamble in March, is now a floorless cabin in a corner of the Caicos Corp. yard in Port Gamble. Soon it won’t even be that.

Winslow Way needs fixes | Bainbridge Letters to the Editor

  • Jul 8, 2008 at 3:46PM

The Grand Old Fourth of July celebration once again reminds us all that Winslow Way really is the geographic heart of our community. It’s both our Main Street and our community living room. It’s where we shop, where we meet, and sometimes, it’s where we come together to celebrate. Sadly, Winslow Way has also become our principal point of contention.

It’s been 20 Bloomin’ years

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM

Two decades gives a nonprofit endeavor a good, long time to evolve. And from humble beginnings, Bainbridge in Bloom has blossomed.

Bainbridge is in bloom, two decades and counting

Feeling upbeat, not beat up, about this year’s celebration

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM

Emotions were running high and the tension was so thick you could cut it with a knife at the staging area of the Bainbridge Annual Grande Olde Fourthe of Julye Parade last Fridaye afternoone. Anxious paraders milled about anxiously and anxiously glanced at their watches, all waiting anxiously for the parade to begin. One sign of the rampant pre-parade nervousness was the long line outside the two staging area Porta Potties located on the corner of Madison and Wallace Way. The line outside these Porta Potties was among the longest I saw all day, second perhaps only to the line in front of the booth offering free Obama stickers and the queue in front of the American Marine Bank ATM on Winslow Way.

Question is: To torture or not to torture?

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM

You have to wonder about the morality of politicians, bureaucrats and Americans of all types who are strongly against torture when it’s done to us while believing the end justifies the means when the U.S. tortures a declared enemy to gather information.

The virtues of Beethoven and riverside meditation

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM

Lying reclined on a picnic blanket with my hands beneath my head, staring up past the treetops where the ambience of a grand piano meshed with the sunshine and singing birds in the afternoon sky, I knew I’d found a getaway.

Bremerton themes First Friday around 4th, Bainbridge delays till July 11

As the first Friday of July falls squarely on July 4 this year, art galleries in Bremerton have focused their exhibits quirkily around the Independence Day theme, and will be debuting with receptions that day. Galleries on Bainbridge, including Bainbridge Arts and Crafts which recently received a $1 million endowment that made headlines, will be waiting it out, hosting their first Friday parties during the second week July 11 due to the nuttiness of the island’s Grand Ole Fourth celebration.

Movie nights atop Bremerton J.C. Penney debut July 11

  • Jul 2, 2008 at 3:00PM updated Jul 7, 2008 at 3:07PM

Ron Sher and Co. plan to host movie nights atop the old J.C. Penney building each weekend this month, starting with ‘Top Gun’ July 11. The glow of city lights in downtown Bremerton envelope the old J.C. Penney building at night. But it seems almost a lonely glow.

Lynwood Theater plays host to the 'Show People' of yesteryear

  • Jul 2, 2008 at 3:00PM updated Jul 7, 2008 at 3:07PM

King Vidor’s 1928 silent film satire “Show People” reminds me of something like those “Scary Movie” flicks of today. Those features (more like DVDs as they don’t even come out in theaters most of the time anymore) poke fun at the whole scary movie genre with spoofs on all the contemporary blockbusters and incredibly, oft intentionally, bad acting. Vidor’s piece is much more of a beautiful relic with an all-star cast from the days of the silent film — featuring Marion Davies and William Haines, with cameos from everyone including Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin and all the greats.
