MARISA & BAINBRIDGE ISLANDERS FACEBOOK GROUP | TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 08, 2020

Today we have one of those admins Marisa Casteneda to give us a behind scenes of how the Group functions, the history of the group, what the rules are and how the admins make close-calls weighing the good of the posters with the good of the group.

Shortly before Christmas 2010 Bainbridge Islanders Facebook Group was formed. It has become the largest group of its kind in Bainbridge Island with over 12,000 members.

Some of its traditions like nature photography, trail end descriptions or shoreline vistas have become staples. It is the informal interview stop for families looking to move to Bainbridge Island. It's also a place to get carpenters, plumbers, deck builders vetted. A place to talk Bainbridge restaurant foodism.

Imagine you took your beloved grandparent into the hospital for an emergency. After a day or so the visitation rules at the hospital changed and then no one would answer your questions. Later, when you find out that same hospital, formerly Harrison now called St. Michael's Medical Center in Bremerton, had a major COVID-19 outbreak you can't even find out if your grandparent was exposed!

Suzie Schaeffer of Bainbridge Island had just this experience and tells us about it on Wake Up Bainbridge. Irony of ironies: her grandmother was a nurse at that very same hospital for over 20 years.

Mail-In Ballot Show With Kitsap County Auditor Paul Andrews

We have the person in charge of elections in Kitsap County, Kitsap County Auditor Paul Andrews. He is the man who makes sure you are or can get registered; he makes sure you get your ballot; provides security for your ballot; and accurately counts the ballots.

Everyone has questions with all the USPS news and the strange pronouncements coming from the White House. We do. Turn off the news. Go to the source. Paul Andrews is the man in charge in our county and we hope will also have some insights on mail-in ballots across the United States.

STONECHILD CHIEFSTICK UPDATE WITH SPECIAL GUEST, DOMINIC CAMPESE

Will the Washington State Attorney General review?

Keller's interview testimony of Keller regarding the screwdriver "was close to the head of a child." Is this borne out in any other witness statement?

What has been the Suquamish Tribe reaction to the Poulsbo PD "OK" for Keller to come back to work?

How was the "use of force" panel chosen?

Where is the entire Keller interview? What is noted in the investigation report are just excerpts.

Was the Prosecutor's reliance on just the "commonalities" of the eyewitness testimony a fatal flaw in getting to the truth?
