Saturday, May 10: "Move! #21"

Since its beginnings in 2006 (the number 21 denotes that this is the 21st show, not the 21st year), MOVE! has popped up in different types of venues around town and sometimes had more than one performance per year. For all 21 performances, the goal has remained the same -

Friday, May 9: The West

There was a decent stretch of time, starting from the '80s and working its way through the middle of last decade, when indie rock and dancing may as well have been antithetical concepts. It's hard to pinpoint exactly when artists started striving to reintroduce dance into the language of indie

Madigan has two bright employees

Things keep getting brighter in the halls at Madigan Army Medical Center on Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Clever wording aside, a better tagline for veteran Alvin Bright, who works as a civilian in the Orthopedics Clinic, might be that things come full circle. Bright joined the Army as an infantry soldier in 1973

Sucher & Sons Stars Wars store in Aberdeen

There has been a great disturbance in the Force. I first profiled Don Sucher and his one-of-a-kind shop in Aberdeen three years ago, when the hottest news in the Star Wars universe was season four of Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. Then came a day that will long be remembered:

Grab a taste of Thurston County

Even in these days of free samples at the supermarket, shopping for groceries can be ho-hum. Once you get inside a big store filled with big brands, you could be anywhere in the country. It doesn't have to be that way around here. If you know where to shop, a trip

Luxury camping in Washington state

Getting back to nature on a camping adventure doesn't have to be all about bugs, smelly old sleeping bags, wonky tents and soggy bland eats. There's a new camping choice in town (and throughout the world!) that takes the "rough" out of "roughing it," and boy, does it mean it! Welcome

Visit Crater Lake National Park

I regret that I didn't visit Crater Lake while stationed in the Pacific Northwest. The 380 miles between Joint Base Lewis-McChord and the national park in southern Oregon that's home to the nation's deepest lake may seem a deterrent, but the breathtaking views and fascinating geological history awaiting those who

Broadway West: Ashland's theater theme park

I see about 40 plays a year in the South Sound. Some are better than others, and some make more money. At least two will tank despite being quite good indeed. End Days at Harlequin and Next to Normal at Capital Playhouse struggled to find audiences, and those were my

Family friendly outdoor movies in the parks

Enjoying a great movie with the whole family is a terrific summertime activity, but who says you have to be cooped up in a dark movie theater to do it? Wouldn't it be more fun to catch a flick under the stars on a balmy and beautiful summer evening and

Soar with the eagles at Northwest Trek

If I may be so bold as to offer one piece of advice for first-time zip-liners, it would be this: you really do need to thrust your legs straight out in front of you. Pretend you're a kid on a swing set. My wife had trouble with that. It didn't

Summer Bible camps in the South Sound

Vacation Bible School, aka VBS, isn't what it used to be. It's better!  In fact, the summertime day camp where children learn about and experience the Christian faith has a new name at some churches. "We refer to our week as Vacation Bible CAMP; it's way too much fun to be

Summer festivals for families

Few things mean summer more than a festival, and many of the South Sound's summer festivals are family-friendly in every way. Take the kids, enjoy some fair food, arts and crafts vendors, live music and often a few rides, too. The South Sound lights up with festivals throughout the summer

Operation: Military Child Care

It's no secret that childcare is expensive. In fact, according to the National Association of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies (NACCRRA), the average cost of center-based daycare in the United States is $11,666 per year ($972 a month) but prices can climb as high as almost $19,000 annually. Since 2004,

Bordering the Lacey, Olympia city limits is the Hawks Prairie region. Also known as Johnson Point, Hawk's Prairie is a matrimony of sleepy residential areas, forested outdoor attractions and pockets of business districts including downtown Lacey.

Theater review: "Bye Bye Birdie" at Tacoma Little Theatre

March 24, 1958, at the height of his popularity, the greatest rock star in the world - in the history of the world - was inducted into the U.S. Army as a private. His fans called the day Black Monday. The occasion was marked by "one last kiss" from a

Folk, jazz, to late night and sultry blues - Carolyn Cruso has a varied resume. Hailing from the Hudson River Valley of New York State, she now calls the misty shores of Orcas Island home, so the jaunt to Tacoma's A Rhapsody in Bloom Wednesday will be a shorter commute.
