Free clothing, equipment cleaning eliminates one clearing stress

  It's been available free to Joint Base Lewis-McChord Soldiers since 2003, but Rita Parker knows the reality: The base's Directorate of Logistics laundry service is still something of a hidden gem. She doesn't know why, she said, but even despite Facebook posts on some of JBLM's most popular

Irish dance provides familiarity for JBLM youth

Military youths who grow up forced to make the adjustments that come with frequent moves appreciate familiar things. For a small group of Joint Base Lewis-McChord young people, an Irish dance is as familiar as walking. Victoria Vest began Irish dance classes about three years ago after

  TACOMA - Even in a gymnasium packed with tri-fold presentation boards, men and women clad in white lab coats and college professors scribbling down notes on grading sheets, an old Army infantryman can find some common ground. Over the last 25 years, Sgt. Maj. Robert Braddock has led

Penny Condoll doesn't remember the car accident that changed her life about a decade ago. She does remember what life became like for her after the accident, however. Waking up in the hospital one month later, Condoll spent one year in intensive rehabilitation treatment. Post-rehabilitation, she had to embark on a

Book Review: "The Tacoma Pill Junkies"

Tacoma resident Joshua Swainston recently published his first novel, The Tacoma Pill Junkies. As clearly suggested by the title, the book is about a bunch of dealers and addicts who go about their business in familiar locations in Tacoma - notably the Tacoma Mall and Magoo's and Tower Lanes. The

Friday, April 5: Hell's Belles, Mosquito Hawk

This is one of those Better Living blurbs where I'm like, "Shit - what's there to say about this show that people don't know?" It's Hell's Belles, for crying out loud. The band Angus Young himself said was the best AC/DC cover band in the world. And they are all

Friday, April 5: Steve Stefanowicz

In the days before adulthood consumed Steve Stefanowicz, the "Human Jukebox" would perform seven days a week. Blind at birth, proficient on the guitar at 15, performing solo and in his band Blind Ambition, Stefanowicz could be seen nightly through the '80s and '90s, performing any of the 1,000 songs

Saturday, April 6: "Beyond Books: the Independent Art of Eric Carle"

Eric Carle's picture books are engaging to the point of being problematic for many parents and child-minders. Kids read them, and become addicted, so by the 17th reading, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? loses some of its magic to the adult reader, and the pictures go by largely

Friday, April 5: Tacoma Poetry Month Party

April is National Poetry Month, and you would do well to beware of bookstore chains and newspapers that speak of poetry in vague, general terms - as if it were some mass-produced, sludgelike substance. Poetry is the most specific of art forms, and the best way to tap into its

The Grand Suggests: "Ginger & Rosa"

In film, I often take the stance that coming-of-age stories about young women are often overdone, over rated and void of any reflection of my own experiences. I have sat tirelessly through stories about teen-age girls that I have no connection with, and can't think of anyone I know who
