Urban Spelunker: East 72nd and Portland, Tacoma

In the heart of Tacoma's eastside, you'll find the intersection of East 72nd and Portland. With a concentration of apartments and housing developments paired with lots of big box retails (think Kmart) and fast food dining (think Wendy's), this area yields an immense level of car and pedestrian traffic. You'll

Wednesday, Jan. 29: Science Fair Success

When the science fair notice arrives at the Swarner household, I wish to be deported to a camp 60 miles south of Vegas. These are dangerous times, my friends, especially for those living in Tacoma's Northend neighborhood. My tweener and I don the white lab coats and flirt with the

Monday, Jan. 27: Slavery in the Northwest

In 1619, there were only a handful of slaves in the United States — 20 Africans landing on the shores as indentured servants, with tenures up to seven years, then freedom. Four decades later, because of Eli Whitney's cotton gin, the U.S. slave population soared. By the mid-1700s, there were

Saturday, Jan. 25: DJ Donald Glaude

In the early ‘80s, Donald Glaude filled our high-school house parties with Funkadelic, Commodores and underground hip-hop. We (meaning dorky dudes) would mount the REAL quarters table while the women flocked around Glaude. His musical knowledge, good looks and outgoing personality made him king of Lakes High School. From there,

Through Feb. 9: "To Kill A Mockingbird"

Those of you who actually read your high school literature assignments should remember that Atticus Finch is the dignified Southern lawyer who defends a black man wrongly accused of rape in Harper Lee's Pulitzer prize-winning 1969 novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Set in 1935 Alabama, three children face the life

Theater Review: "Shout!" is a thing I can do without

I'm this close to giving up on jukebox musicals altogether. For one thing, the people who enjoy them - and those people are legion - do so for reasons that have nothing to do with theater criticism. I like nostalgia, too, which is why I have '80s songs on my

Tuesday, Jan. 28: Comics and Pizza Club

When you think "book club," is the first image that comes to mind a bunch of middle-aged women with their chairs pulled in a circle sipping white wine and discussing the latest hoity-toity-pabulum-for-the-masses endorsed by Oprah? If you're like me, that holds absolutely zero appeal. Give me something that's fun
