Nocturnal soul

There are a lot of milestones that come with growing up listening to music: leaving the comfort of the music that your parents played for you, using their teachings as building blocks to discover bands on your own; getting the first pangs of abandonment when a favorite band releases a

Army vet writes book in honor of brother

Life was simple although difficult for the Bartlett family during the Depression Era. The eight Bartlett siblings worked on their family's farm in rural Deer Trail, Colorado. Their happy, simple life was interrupted with the outbreak of World War II. For a 10-year-old Albert Bartlett, this meant watching his favorite

THREE QUESTIONS with Bobble Tiki: Where Sails Meet Rails

OK, OK - Bobble Tiki gets it. He's been a complete bum lately. Like Skippyjon Jones, maybe Bobble Tiki's been lost in spice - only the "spice" was actually booze, various other intoxicants, and copious amounts of self-loathing? But you probably wont be reading stories about Bobble Tiki's recent bender

2015 marks enormous advances for women

Women's strides made big news throughout 2015, with graduating from Ranger School, to the appointment of the first black female Army surgeon general to Defense Secretary Ash Carter opening up all military occupational specialties - or MOSs - to women. Here are some of the highlights:ALL OCCUPATIONS OPEN TO WOMEN On Dec.

The health of the force

The 2015 "Health of the Force Report" is the Army's initial effort to evaluate, study and disseminate best health practices at the installation level. Some of the major findings from the soldiers surveyed are as follows: 17 percent were classified as not being medically ready to deploy within 72 hours. Non-readiness ranged from

Creating wonders

When I started writing theater reviews 10 years ago, few people outside of Federal Way had ever heard of Centerstage, but in the years since, this little-known theater has blossomed into one of the finest in the Puget Sound region - thanks in large part to outstanding productions spearheaded by,

'Blue Collar' at Fulcrum

I love the new show at Fulcrum Gallery. It is called "Blue Collar," paintings in acrylic on antique platters by Adrian Bouchard. How such an outstanding Tacoma painter could have escaped my attention until now is beyond comprehension. Bouchard paints portraits taken from old photographs. They are hyper realistic, painted with

Jazzy New Year!

Maia Santell, performing New Year's Eve at Johnny's Dock Restaurant & Marina, is a name you should know. With a vocal timbre reminiscent of Rosemary Clooney, she and her venerable backing band, House Blend, are stars of contemporary jazz and blues in Tacoma. Her parents and uncle were fixtures in

Through March 20: "My Name Is Asher Lev"

When Rabbi Chaim Potok wrote the novel My Name Is Asher Lev in 1972, he was telling a story that was largely autobiographical. Like the Hasidic hero of his novel, Potok struggled with the conflict between artistic expression and his ultraconservative Jewish upbringing. Potok's famous painting,

When your job is making everything from elections to war to environmental disasters into a joke, it really does color your worldview. "I don't look at the Egyptian protests and think, ‘Is this good for the world or bad for the world?' " says Elaina Newport, co-founder of

The Cubs love Charlie Sheen, Luis Moreno hates owls, and everyone loves NASCAR

STRIKE ONE Who said the post-football void would be desperate and lonely? Who said there'd be no action? Who said we'd starve from boredom? This week Cup Check had plenty to choose from, from doughboy cheerleaders to dead owls. But, to mix things up, let's start things off the same place as everyone

The Nightgowns do SXSW

If we really wanted to, as a town, we could band together and make sure the Nightgowns would remain Tacoma's "best kept secret." We could shield them from the outside world, ensuring that only we would know the strange power their synth-pop possesses. We could dote on them and come

It’s in the bag

It’s time to split. We’ve been together nearly a year, and it’s been a mostly good year, but I’m tired. Now I know there are people out there who can juggle multiples, switching things up at whim, and there are those people who can stay with one ’til death. I suppose I’m something

Green Toe, Dwell and Chuckals

Happy, green toes I love me some comfy shoes, and I love me some win-win situations. At Dante’s, I found both of these things, especially when it came to the Simple brand sandals in the Green Toe line — these puppies will keep my piggies happy with simply divine comfort, and they’ll

New kid moves in!

I saw Sonja Politakis’ fabulously kicky new ’do and had to ask the question: Who? Turns out a new stylist is subtly moving her way into the scene, only she’s not so new.  Melissa Ellis has been an established face at Seattle’s fabulously posh Bocz salon.  Prior to that, she worked

Kourtney Anderson

Kourtney Anderson took a minute to flaunt her stuff in between sips of wine at the Pacific Grill’s Saturday night “Taste” wine tasting.  She commented that the sweater/shirt/tank combo was “stolen from some slaughterhouse somewhere” — potentially the items were borrowed from friends.  Her Guess? Sweater is the only big-brand

Neon jewelry

I remember watching those movies filmed in the ’70s and early ’80s starring women with big frizzy hair and neon colored jewelry. Boys and girls, the big ball bracelets with the matching necklaces and hair ties are back! I had been shopping in Clair’s at the Fort Lewis Post Exchange for

Morning Quickie Newsletter: auto repair gift certificate (CLOSED)

(THIS CONTEST IS CLODED. CONGRATS TO LELA!) Some auto repair shops have a tendency to put their hands deeply into the pockets of ignorant car owners, inflating costs, padding labor, "diagnosing" questionable problems, or at least exaggerating the extent of the damage. We haven't heard or experienced such a thing at
