Touched by tragedy, military couple seeks to help others

Losing a child is one of the worst things a parent can imagine. Losing two children, within one year, is quite simply unimaginable.   For retired Maj. Gen. Mark Graham and his wife, Carol, this is a reality that they have coped with for close to a decade since the losses of

Wednesday, March 20: Wishbone Ash

British prog-rockers Wishbone Ash's harmony-laden dual-guitar attack predated Thin Lizzy, the group often credited with inventing it. Of course, Wishbone Ash also perfected the slow beginning/fast ending rock anthem. Only guitarist Andy Powell remains from the group's '70s heyday, but despite an ungodly number of

Through March 21: "Then and Now: Alumni Art Exhibit"

I was not impressed with the images on the invitation to the alumni art show at South Puget Sound Community College, but when I walked into the gallery I was pleasantly surprised. Not that it is all great - there are some pretty bland and traditional pastel and watercolor landscapes

Saturday, March 16: Drum 'n' Bass Night

Drum 'n' bass currently enjoys not nearly as much of the fawning media attention lavished on it in the mid-'90s, when magazines anointed Roni Size and Goldie the kings of rapid-fire jungle. It's been a while since Bobble Tiki heard the treadmill churn of jackknifing beats and bass riffs. Good news.

Rachel Corrie was 23 years old when she traveled from Olympia to the Gaza strip to fight for Palestinian rights. Tragically, she was killed when a bulldozer ran over her as she defended a Palestinian family home. Since the fateful day 10 years ago, a struggle for human rights has been

Thursday, March 21: ART BUS with Vern Fonk dude

Walking from gallery to gallery, up to Hilltop, down to Pacific Avenue, across town to Sixth Avenue, over to the Dome District is damn tough. Thankfully, for the last three years Tacoma has had the ART BUS to rely on - the creation of T-town's own Angela Jossy, and pretty

"Can we hire him?" That question was asked about 10 months ago after Matthew Kiepert entered Sweet Melissa's bakery to buy a cupcake.  "One of our employees talked with him and was impressed with his knowledge of baking," explained Amber Arrant, the store's manager. "When she asked if we could hire him,

Saturday, March 16: The Saturday Giant

There's a spot in my musical life that has been left dormant since the days of Bright Eyes and Death Cab For Cutie - these sensitive indie bands that constructed perfectly poppy songs that somehow managed to sum up how I felt as a lost, confused young man. I didn't
