Swap Meet Mama website empowers secondhand market

Anyone with kids knows the truth about buying anything for children - kids outgrow just about everything in five minutes. While many parents still venture forth to the Baby Gap to bedeck their little ones in the latest and greatest, many others look to the secondhand market. And why not?

The Department of Veterans Affairs has been overhauling its services in an effort to reach more of the growing veteran population than ever before.

Downtown Tacoma living

According to a recent article in TIME magazine, there has been a dramatic shift in urban versus suburban living in the United States.

The Meyers of McChord Field

On McChord Field, there's a surname that might just be synonymous with pride and loyalty: Meyer. "We had met with recruiters from different branches and what drove us to the Air Force was a lasting, first impression - the recruiter was very professional and it won me over," explained Chief Master

Wednesday, Feb. 12: South Sound Comedy Festival

Five percent of the population will visit an adult club, while 95 percent of the population will visit a comedy club, so we concur Harlequin productions made the right call launching the first annual South Sound Comedy Festival - although comics are more high maintenance than strippers. The SSCF will

Tuesday, Feb. 11: Poetry Above The Roar

You can't swing a microphone cable around South Sound's spoken-word poetry scene without hitting William Kupinse. Now the poet, Tacoma's first Poet Laureate and associate professor of English at University of Puget Sound, is teaming up with composer Greg Youtz, professor of music at Pacific Lutheran University, in the performance

Monday, Feb. 10: Monday Jazz Jam with the Peach Serene Jazz Trio

The New Frontier Lounge isn't The Five Spot on Cooper Square. Then again, it doesn't sit in the East Village of the 1950s either. But, grab the corner bar stool on a Monday night at The New Frontier, nurse a double bourbon, close your eyes and let pianist Nate Dybevik,

Sunday, Feb. 9: Long Beach Rehab

Honestly, we don't know who the hell is in the Long Beach Rehab Band. Lyon Pride Music has booked the band in several Northwest venues, including Jazzbones and the new Rock N Roll Lodge four days apart. Pre-show hype still has Qball fronting the band. Qball grew up in the

Through May 25: "A Punch of Color: Fifty Years of Painting by Camille Patha"

The Camille Patha show at Tacoma Art Museum is stupendous. Frankly, having seen her paintings only on a computer screen, I had not expected anything so great. On my computer they were too slick, too intense, and overwhelming in a not-good way; but the real deal is breathtaking. The show is

Saturday, Feb. 8: Mardi gras

While the Key Peninsula Civic Center can't promise all of the gratuitous nudity and open liquor laws of New Orleans, the folks running the joint can guarantee good music and a good time. If you haven't spent much time in Louisiana, you may not be too versed in Mardi gras.

Saturday, Feb. 8: Dead Winter Carpenters

At first listen, Dead Winter Carpenters surprised me with their high-energy alt-country. The skilled fingers of the guitarist diddling up and down the neck, the easy vocals, telling stories of the road, the woods and the law, the combination of bass, drum, harmonica, fiddle and viola in a big sound,
