Beat blast: A dirty creek, ‘interactive’ pot store and plans for a playfield

Think of it as our own mini-version of the Elwha Dam removal. Gorst Creek has long been plugged up with the contents of a former garbage dump just east of the creek’s crossing with Highway 3. A state biologist called it a “disgusting site.”


An EPA-led and Navy-funded cleanup will remove around 8,000 truckloads of garbage from the site, restoring the creek’s natural flow.

Elsewhere in the beat blast this week, you’ll learn:

The different ways of Bremerton’s newest pot store, which will have its grand opening on April 20;

The plans for the Manette Playfield’s $1.4 million renovation;

What member of President Obama’s cabinet showed up last week on the USS John C. Stennis, Bremerton’s home-ported carrier;

What’s going to happen to ensure rocks don’t continue falling off the Chase Building in downtown Bremerton.
