Police blotter: Dog bakes while owner drinks


A Bothell woman left her pooch in a locked car while she sought boozy refreshment from the record-breaking heat. Police were ready to bust open the windows when a well-timed call from the woman’s boyfriend’s mom got her off her bar stool.

Also this week, a woman assaulted her wheelchair-bound roommate, a cyclist was airlifted to Harborview and a man was caught stealing at the Island Gateway site.

School board selects new member

The Bainbridge school board selected a member of the school district’s budget advisory committee to replace Dave Pollock, who resigned from the board earlier this month.

Tim Kinkead, a business consultant with children in two Bainbridge schools, was chosen on Tuesday out of the five applicants who applied for Pollock’s spot.

Kinkead has served the last two years on the district’s budget advisory committee. He has children enrolled at Blakely Elementary School and Sakai Intermediate School.

Once he is sworn in on Sept. 9, Kinkead will serve out the last year of Pollock’s four-year term.

Pollock resigned due to work demands and because he no longer has school-age children.

As a business consultant for more than 20 years, Kinkead has overseen information technology and supply chain operations for large corporations. He has also worked for educational research and reform foundations.

District spokeswoman Pam Keyes said Kinkead’s background in technology, business administration and finance, and his knowledge of the district’s financial challenges, will be of great benefit to the district.
