17th Fires Brigade retreat offers single parents quality time with children

  Sergeant William Smith plays many roles in his life, but he considers being a father the most important. It is also the most challenging. "It's hard, after working all day, coming home and trying to get ready for work the next day when it's just you and your kid, and you

Helping the EOD

Working in one of the most dangerous occupations in the military is probably an accolade that most servicemembers would want to state, but may not want to actually commit a career towards. That's the life of an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technician. Out of the estimated 1.4 million members serving in the

Second Samuel at Tacoma Little Theatre

Tacoma Little Theatre's production of Second Samuel is a little play that tackles big subjects in an inventive manner while maintaining its light-hearted feel. It is a stylistic marvel with two sets: the Bait and Brew Bar (stage left), advertising red eye - that's booze and red wigglers - that's

3 inches of blood

Old-school metal holds a dear place in my heart, and I’m proud to say I never condoned the crap that those doll-faced boys spewed out in the ’80s.  Saxon, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest were more to my liking, as they didn’t water down the music but rather poured gasoline

Urban Tanning Spa opens

Open, for real Stymied by yet another delay, Urban Tanning Spa did not open, as reported, on Thursday.  Nor was it open Friday, Saturday or Sunday. However, owner Aaron Delatorre assures me the Urban Tanning Spa is open and fully operational.  Monday, his first day, saw between 50 and 60 customers walking

Peabody Waldorf set to move

It seems that, around these parts, it's something of an ongoing task to keep track of where live music is being showcased. Venues pop up quickly and disappear even quicker, leaving venue-shaped clouds of dust in their wake. Over the weekend, I heard talk that the Peabody Waldorf Gallery -

Tacoma Little Theatre smells a farce

Oh, the farce - such ridiculousness, always treading the fine line between absurdity and hilarity. Tacoma Little Theatre's production, directed by Frank Kohel, of A Flea in Her Ear is no exception. For the production TLT chose a new version of George Feydeau's French farce as translated by David Ives.

(446th AW PA) - Most Reservists have their reasons for joining the Air Force Reserve. For some it may be for the education and training. For others, it could be the satisfaction of serving their country on a part-time basis while being able to work as a civilian and live in their

Rediscovering our past

Two things you notice right away about the Brown's Point Diner in northeast Tacoma: First, it's a little slice of Americana with no-fuss food and friendly staff; second, for all of its old fashion sensibilities, it's in a strip mall. Jason: I think its funny when a diner is in a

Strange science

When my wife saw a photo of Richard Craig Meitner's Branch - blown glass with rust patina - she said, "That's creepy but interesting." She paused a moment and then said, "I like it."That reaction may be typical for Meitner's work. His glass sculpture can be witty and perhaps a

'Prison Obscura'

Like images captured with a pinhole camera, also known as a camera obscura, the exhibition "Prison Obscura" at The Evergreen State College "considers this fundamental distortion that characterizes vision and viewing, how we see and don't see the people we incarcerate - the people we put in boxes. Guiding the

Burlesque can be a drag. "Stage-ready makeup for burlesque is called ‘full drag,' " explains Frida Fondle of Olympia's Tush Burlesque. "It's a great homage to the drag queens, who really do exemplify the ultimate of feminine glamour. When we are putting on our makeup for the stage, we aspire to

Like a proud father, Staff Sgt. Nahkoma Doyle sat at a table inside the newly completed Airman Activities Center inside Bldg. 572 and gushed about the work a group of Airmen put in to get the project completed. "This whole thing was their idea," said Doyle, the dormitory manager. "It was

STRIKE ONE If there's one thing an NFL off-season plotline needs, as we've learned from a certain penis-texting Wranglers model, it's the unique intrigue of an aging former great coming out of retirement.
