Restaurant visionaries

Early this morning I jumped onto the Internet only to discover there is no such thing as National Restaurateur Month. My inquiry stemmed from a strange dream the night before, so I had to find the truth. I have a terrible time sleeping sometimes because my head is always swirling

Cuppa inspiration

Stephenie Jekel, owner of four Java Flow coffeehouses, knows a thing or two about triumph over adversity. Eight years ago she was homeless, addicted to methamphetamines, a domestic violence survivor, and mother of two small children.

Stars rise above script

Penelope Wilhern has a pig nose.  Let’s just get that out in the open straightaway.  It was a birth defect caused by a family curse that cannot be surgically fixed because the carotid artery runs through it, or some such.  Still with me?  Penelope (Christina Ricci) is an adult now,

Sports bush leagues are populated by a few bright shining prospects and plenty of has-beens and never-weres, guys who go on playing games to prolong their adolescence.

Lonergan vs. Goings

Lonergan vs. Goings The Tacoma City Council is a bizarre group of players. All of them could easily be made into cartoon characters with accentuated personalities and plenty of goofy quirks. There’s the gangly Mayor Bill Baarsma, the robust and hard-lined Deputy Mayor Spiro Manthou, and the Mrs. Clever-esque Connie Ladenburg. Then

Laughing through the tears

Editor’s note: The Savages opened in select cities Dec. 21, 2007. It opens in Tacoma tomorrow. The Savages seemed a curious movie to be opening four days before Christmas, but maybe not: Christmas Day itself is said to be the top movie-going day of the year, as families (a) seek something
