Sarah Smiley: Lessons not learned by playing Nintendo, phone games

  • Aug 1, 2015 at 11:00AM

The logic of video games was pretty simple, and utterly false, when I was 12 years old and playing "Super Mario Bros." on Nintendo. The "logic" began when the game cartridge wouldn't work, and blowing on the insides usually fixed it. Nothing else in real life is this simple. I have never blown air on a broken toaster and thought that it would work.

Work together to determine best course for development of 1321 Callow Avenue

  • Jul 30, 2015 at 10:35AM

It is to the benefit of the City of Bremerton, the Suquamish Tribe and the descendants of Roberta Law Ross to work together to determine the best economic development course for the Ross descendants’ trust land at 1321 N. Callow Ave. Much of the area was undeveloped when Ross, a woman of Quinault and Samish parentage living in Bremerton, was allotted the land — a little over three-quarters of an acre — in exchange for waterfront property for naval shipyard expansion in the 1920s; because she was Native American, the U.S. government placed the land in trust — meaning, the U.S. holds the title to protect Native American ownership.

Callow Avenue casino proposal at an impasse

  • Jul 29, 2015 at 5:37PM

BREMERTON — At 0.79-acre, 1321 N. Callow Ave. is arguably one of the smallest pieces of Indian Country in the United States. Under the U.S. Code, Indian Country — Native-owned trust land, including allotments and reservations — falls under the authority of Tribal and U.S. governments, which means 1321 N. Callow Ave. is in the jurisdiction of the Suquamish Tribe because the site is within Suquamish’s historical territory. But the site is surrounded by the City of Bremerton. So, how the site can be developed is being tested.
