Heavy rain and slick roads contributed to a spate of recent
collisions on Bainbridge. On Nov. 30 an SUV knocked down a
77-year-old woman in a crosswalk during a downpour on Winslow
Rainstorms weren’t the only winter driving hazards. A Poulsbo
man told police he was sneezing when his Volkswagen Golf hit a
Honda Fit on Highway 305 on Nov. 30, while Bainbridge woman was
distracted by a holiday light display Nov. 25, when her Volvo
slammed into a Honda Element on Olympic Drive.
Former Bainbridge High School teacher Rory Wilson will share
reflections and photos from his
rowing odyssey to Hawaii next week.
The presentation is scheduled for 7 p.m. Dec. 11 at the
Bainbridge High School commons. The event is free, and donations
will be accepted for the Bainbridge Schools
Wilson made the 44-day journey from San Diego to Honolulu
earlier this fall in a slender homemade craft powered by oars and
kites. He called the vessel “KROS,” short for kites, rowing ocean,
solar. Wilson’s math students at Bainbridge High
helped him prepare for the journey.
You can get a taste of Wilson’s adventure in the video below,
which shows KROS dancing through waves under kite power.
Wilson has posted many more amazing images on the
KROS page on Facebook.
