SOLD OUT: History Museum Is Lying—Again

This event is now sold out (9/18/15). The Bainbridge Island Historical Museum is holding its fourth annual Lives and Lies fundraising party on Saturday, September 19. This time, the focus of their lies is Eagledale’s heritage. You probably didn’t know that Eagledale was once a Nike missile site, but that’s true, probably, as is the fact that…

From Kenya Sheepherder to Education Champion & Bainbridge Rotary Guest

Collins Nakedi grew up in a village near East Pokot, Kenya, which isn’t saying a whole lot. East Pokot doesn’t even get its own Wikipedia entry, and Google Maps only acknowledges West Pokot with a red line surrounding a mostly otherwise-unmarked area of Kenya. A Save the Children Humanitarian Assessment describes East Pokot as “mountainous area with a lot…

Get Reddy for the 3rd Annuall Spelleling B

The ever-popular adult Spelling Bee hosted by the Bainbridge Library happens in just two days, and the teams are studiously practicing their many hard-to-spell words, like rubefacient, erythrophobia, and phaeocrous, without bothering to learn what they mean. I also did not bother. But these words are hard to spell and so I’m confident they will be among…

Labor Day Beach Party

Labor Day Parks Bash Draws Hundreds to Fay Bainbridge (Photo Gallery)

The Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation got lucky with sunny skies and mild temperatures for today’s (September 7) Labor Day Beach Party. (Full disclosure: IB did issue a wind and rain prohibition, which might have been a factor.) The success of today’s event helped somewhat to make up for last weekend’s literal blowout and rainout 50th birthday party…

Got a Bike with a Motor? Ride It for the Homeless

Gimme Shelter is the tough, sort of Sons of Anarchy-name given to an awareness-raising motorcycle ride scheduled for September 12. The appeal to rebellious Easy Riders can only be heightened by the fact that the event has no affiliation with any specific organizations. And the purpose will tug the heartstrings of even the toughest rider: homelessness. The…

The Bee Is About to Buzz for the Third Time: Enter Your Team Now

Feuilleton. Stichomythia. Autochthonous. Prospicience. These are some of the words you might be asked to spell at the Third Annual Bainbridge Public Library Adult Spelling Bee.
