Bainbridge Island Book "Let It Go, Louie" Croatian Immigrants on Puget Sound - 02/10/11 03:43 PM
ISLAND HISTORIC TIDBITS Our Island has a strong fishing and boatbuilding history, and Croatian immigrants figure strongly in it. It was they who pioneered the tactic of stalking fish and then surrounding them in large, purse-like nets. And, they ranged further than the "gill-netters", piloting larger, faster vessels into the Bering Sea on their quest for Salmon. When Barbara Winther & Gary Loverich chose a title for their book on Croatian migration and assimilation into Northwest fishing and boatbuilding history, they chose to call it Let It Go, Louie: Croatian Immigrants on Puget Sound, after a catch phrase that came about when (0 comments)

Cash buyers lift Real Estate market - 02/10/11 03:38 PM
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal Buyers in markets around the U.S. are snapping up homes in all-cash deals, betting that prices are at or near bottom and breathing life into some of the nation's most battered housing markets. Cash buyers represented more than half of all transactions in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area last year, according to an analysis from real-estate portal Zillow.com. In the fourth quarter of 2006, they represented just 13% of deals. Meanwhile, downtown Miami prices rose 15% in 2010 from a year earlier, according to the Miami Downtown Development Authority.
