HIP-HOP IN THE 25360: Rest in Peace, Mr. Grant

OK, happy New Year! But not so much for everybody — namely one Oscar Grant from our sister working class city of Oakland, Calif. Have you had the opportunity to witness misconduct on behalf of law enforcement with your own two eyes? As if the Rodney King beating from nearly

Whether he’s one hundred percent comfortable with it or not, David Bazan — formerly of Pedro the Lion — is an artist made for “the round.” This Friday, Jan. 16, at Club SOTA in Tacoma, he’ll get a chance to put this fact on display — at least for all of

Fergie's on the Ave

I expected the folks at Fergie’s on the Ave on McKinley Hill to card me, but not for proof of legal drinking age.  Asking to see my AARP card would’ve been more appropriate. Seventy-five percent of the almost full house during a mid-week lunch in Fergie’s Lounge was made up

McChord Field Reserve family raises funds for personal cause

Recently, when Staff Sgt. Ralph Godinez was named the 2012 Tacoma-Pierce County Citizen Soldier of the Year, his co-workers learned of a secret: coffee.   "They all wanted to know why I hadn't sold them coffee yet," he said with a laugh. "I just never wanted to make them feel obligated."   Since 2010,

Funny thing politics. Just when everyone starts to believe in it again, it becomes so convoluted and overwhelming that no one knows how to engage in the process. As the state legislature returned to Olympia this past week, there was quite a cloud hanging over our poor elected officials. Currently

McChord Officers’ Spouses’ Club welcomes new president

It's a thankless job, but Jennifer Schnoebelen is more than happy to do it. Sure, it's an unpaid volunteer position. Yes, it's a part-time job, but it feels more like a full-time job. When you're the new McChord Officers' Spouses' Club (OSC) president, that's just the way it works. Schnoebelen, 31, was

Are Friends Electric?

I, like everyone else in the United States, have been looking for fun and free things to do. The very same thing can be said for the one and only Carmen Jones, you know, my best friend from high school who used to write for this fine rag. She took a leap

Top Dive Bars in Pierce County

In Texas we called ’em “icehouses.” And it meant you didn’t care if your hair was done or if your makeup looked purdy. They served the greasiest of caloric delicacies and the coldest, cheapest beer around. The fanciest of icehouses served Shiner Bock, which was a little pricier because it

When I was a kid the moms in my neighborhood had the same birthday game plan: eight friends, pin the tail on the donkey, a nut cup, and a lopsided Duncan Hines cake. And no one worried about spills because the décor of the 1970s matched the Kool-Aid colors. We
