Beat blast: A young country star, edible garden tour and speed boats

 Afton Prater’s barely graduated high school but she’s already an accomplished recording artist. The Seabeck native, who has been called one of the brightest young stars in country music, performs this Saturday at Bremerton’s Rock the Dock summer concert series at the Louis Mentor Boardwalk.
Bottom line: don’t miss the chance to see her hour-long set. You’ll be glad you did.
Following the show, she’s off to Nashville, Tenn., to work with other songwriters. The sky’s the limit.
Elsewhere on this week’s Bremerton Beat Blast, you’ll learn:
How to score tickets to Manette’s Edible Garden Tour de Coup, in which 13 homes are available for touring;
The ongoing controversy between neighbors and a church over the demolition of homes at Fifth Street and Veneta Avenue;
The closing of Bremerton’s longtime hub of cannabis culture, ironically, at the hands of marijuana legalization;
One woman’s crusade to snuff out drug pushers and problem houses on her block.
And! Don’t miss the cool footage of speed boats cruising under the Manette Bridge.
