Through Sept. 27: Marita Dingus' "They Still Hold Us"

Marita Dingus is one of Seattle's most unique and well-known artists, renowned for works made from scrap materials such as bent wire and often depicting and commenting on the African American experience. For years she made art about the institution of slavery including a monumental, room-size figure

Tuesday, Sept. 16: Never Young

There are certain combinations of sounds that would've never occurred to you were possible until someone inexplicably decides to shake things up. Have you ever listened to some good, punky emo and wondered where all the sci-fi sound effects were? Wonder no more! Hailing from Oakland, California, Never Young have

Saturday, Sept. 13: Toucan Sam and the Fruitloops

Toucan Sam and the Fruitloops seems like a perverse exercise in buckshot blasts of gimmickry. Made up of a Polyphonic Spree-level assemblage of musicians, the Fruitloops specialize in orchestrated punk rock explosions of popular songs done in ukulele. See where I'm coming from? Still, one can only scoff so much

Saturday, Sept. 13: Golden Drugs

During the last incarnation of my music festival, Squeak and Squawk, I was lucky enough to be able to bring up a band from Oakland, California, called Twin Steps. Led by Drew Pearson, their maniacal frontman, Twin Steps are a stubbornly undefinable group of weirdos who mix warped vocal samples

Double duty for Rep. Hans Zeiger

When it comes to elected officials, Hans Zeiger not only stands apart because he is young and passionate, but because he is voluntarily serving the community on double duty. "I felt obligated to public service in a political sense, but I also wanted to serve my country. The Washington Air National

9/11 Remembered: 47th Combat Support Hospital recalls the day

Capt. Mark Smith remembers where he was and what he was doing on 9/11. "I was a pastor in a church, and I was working in my office," he said. "My wife called and told me what was happening. I went home and sat down and watched the news unfold." The attack

3-2 SBCT soldier named FORSCOM NCO of the Year

One outstanding Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier is back on base and back to work, but in less than a month he will compete to become the Department of the Army's Noncommissioned Officer of the Year. Staff Sgt. Peter Kacapyr, who was named the I Corps' NCO of the Year in June,

Visual Edge: Lisa Sweet's Painted Images and Objects at Salon Refu

I have long been fascinated by Lisa Sweet's paintings. They are bizarre, pop-surrealist images of torture, death and martyrdom painted with skill and quirky humor. Lately she has added painted wood sculptures to her repertoire and along with that an amazing amount of playful depth, both literal and illusory. Sweet teaches

Wednesday, Sept. 17: "Crossing The Arctic Circle and Above"

Human greenhouse gas emissions have led to a 40 percent increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. As a result, the Earth is gaining energy at an alarming rate. We expect to lose ice, see oceans rise, changes to the ocean acidity level, among other changes. The

Tuesday, Sept. 16: Author Peg Bowden: "A Land of Hard Edges"

A patchwork of agricultural lands, booming border towns, and fast-growing cities line the United State-Mexico border. Teams of border patrol agents cruise the landscape in white and green jeeps, hoping to stem the tide of illegal immigrants seeking to cross into the United States. Against this backdrop, Peg Bowden, a

Medicine In The Weeds: Operation Rammasan Relief tests 47th Combat Support Hospital at JBLM

Thursday I found myself knee high in wild grass and scotch broom on the far eastern edge of Joint Base Lewis-McChord. About 160 soldiers assigned to the 47th Combat Support Hospital were participating in Operation Rammasan Relief, an 11-day field training exercise designed to test the unit's ability to deploy -

Friday, Sept. 26: Ritzy retro night of serious girl power

Who doesn't like a little pizzazz with their jazz? Short answer? No one. Jazzy tunes inherently beg to be paired with a little spice, like a beer and a plate of nachos (don't hold the jalapenos), like a fine wine and ... well, actually pairing wine and

Thursday, Sept. 25-Sunday, Sept. 28: Super Circus Heroes

Superheroes are real, and they're coming to the Pacific Northwest! Let's hope Phoenix Jones doesn't get his spandex in a bunch when he finds out he has some competition. Of course, he probably doesn't have much to worry about as these "superheroes" don't actually fight crime. Instead, they battle against
