Bremerton Native Writes Checks

Not that we’re looking for each and every Bremerton reference in the big newspapers or anything, but golly I didn’t see Port Orchard mentioned in the Wall Street Freaking Journal recently.

Oh hey look! Bremerton got mentioned, as the hometown of a Mr. William Gates Sr., of the Bill Gates ancestry.

“Mr. Gates Sr. understood that counsel because of his own childhood, an hour’s ferry ride from Seattle in the working-class town of Bremerton.”

Yep, we mold the people who mold the titans.

Now, the New York Times refers to us as Bremerton Island, an understandable mistake given this fair city’s understated sophistication and elegance, combined with the almost always sunny weather.
