Beat Blast: Crossing guards, ferry receipts and a Big Bird-like bike

Students walking to Naval Avenue Early Learning Center Tuesday morning got special escorts to cross the street. The Bremerton Citizens Advisory Patrol, a volunteer group that helps provide additional eyes and ears to the city’s police department, brought hot chocolate and a helping hand to crossing guards. (You too can sign up here to volunteer, if you so choose.)


Check out our best impression of The Beatles’ Abbey Road. I hope you’ll be impressed.

Elsewhere on the Beat Blast this week, you’ll find out about:

The $10.2 million Fred Meyers’ remodel in East Bremerton;

Gov. Jay Inslee’s promise to keep the new $123 million Chimacum ferry on the Bremerton run;

That your ferry receipt may still say Bainbridge even if you’re traveling to Bremerton. I last wrote about this issue in 2013 but in the video, you’ll see it’s still happening.

And how a bike with Big Bird-like accouterments ended up at the Goodwill on Wheaton Way.

Also, there’s been turmoil in the public works department, which we chronicled in a story last week.

And, if you don’t have any plans Saturday, come take a Story Walk with us at Olympic College’s Secret Garden.
