Beat blast: Marvin Williams, high heels and a new grocery store

It’s been quite the week for Marvin Williams. Not only did the Bremerton native sign a four-year, $54.5 million contract with the Charlotte Hornets, the center that will bear his name will start construction Thursday. (5 p.m. start at 8th and Park.) 

You’ll hear about the Marvin Williams and Birkenfeld Empowerment Center in this week’s beat blast, but you’ll also learn of four other stories including:

-What event will have men walking a mile in heels on Saturday at Evergreen-Rotary Park;

What new apartments are being constructed in downtown Bremerton;


-The latest in Pablo’s tricycle theft case;

-And last, but not least, the possibility of a new grocery store in East Bremerton appears to be coming to fruition.
