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.

Canadian ports eating our lunch

  • Aug 2, 2015 at 10:00AM

Unfortunately, Seattle Congressman Jim McDermott (D) was correct earlier this year when he said Canada’s west coast ports are “eating our lunch!” Both Washington and British Columbia are blessed with deep water seaports that are closer to Asian markets than those in California, the Gulf states and our nation’s eastern seaboard. There is a rich trade tradition in the Northwest, and for many years, the ports of Seattle and Tacoma were preferred by shippers because they could move large volumes of cargo rapidly.

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.
