The Horse & Cow Pub & Grill celebrated its second birthday last week at its location on Fourth Avenue in downtown Bremerton. And like for any proper 2-year-old, they threw a party to celebrate.
Jonathan Margart is 26 years old, 5 foot 7 inches, 166 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. Margart has registered with Kitsap County to reside in the 900 block of Washington Avenue in Bremerton.
Cary Bozeman’s growing sense of urgency pushed him to invite a group of public sector planning professionals, plus a number of Bremerton’s high-powered real estate folks, to gather at the Port Commissioners’ public meeting hall at the Bremerton Airport to discuss what they saw coming and the opportunity it presented to everyone in that room.
More than 350 residents turned out to take part in the ribbon-cutting ceremony for a $20 million project that now stands as the largest single transportation-related project in the history of Kitsap County Public Works Department.
Just five Kitsap County residents were arrested and booked for driving while intoxicated (DUI) during the Fourth of July holiday weekend, according to the Washington State Patrol. That seems, on its face, a highly positive number for a county of roughly 260,000 residents.
The events of last week will not be forgotten, here or anywhere else. But for law enforcement agencies in Kitsap County, they were greeted with a response that might have taken some a bit by surprise: almost universal support, compassion and sympathy.
Safe and sane they may be, but the hazards facing residents from fireworks leaves the county’s first responders dreading the events that inevitably arise from inattentive or impaired handling of illegal and even legal fireworks on this Independence Day weekend.
