Gary Sinise visits Washington Military Transition Council

I met Gary Sinise almost 15 years ago at McChord Field. Tuesday morning, I had the chance to reconnect. Nothing's changed about him - he is the same sincere and humble man I met a decade-and-a-half ago.  What's more, his focus remains squarely on servicemembers and their families. "It's great to be

Jeff Ross roasts Tacoma

Ed. note: Jeff Ross' Tacoma Comedy Club shows have been postponed. The shows will be rescheduled. I've never been very good at ribbing people. I think it comes from all of the anger that churns deep inside of me, but I could be wrong. Whenever there's a group of people playfully

New Year's Eve parties in the greater Tacoma and Olympia area

New Year's Eve in Olympia is typically spent at a bar or restaurant - if not at a party at someone's house. But this year, there's a new place to be for the big moment: onstage at The Washington Center for the Performing Arts. At the center's first New Year's Eve

Music Critics' Picks: Charlatan, Umber Sleeping, Michael Powers

[ELECTRO-ROCK] + FRI, DEC. 12 Charlatan is surging, post-punk inspired electro-rock. As a solo project of Omar Rashan, Charlatan combines programmed beats, synthesizers and fuzzed-out guitars into a sound that's reminiscent of Joy Division. All cleanliness and precision is smeared with layers of noise, and the persistent drum machine gets drenched

Sunday, Dec. 14: Michael Powers

Blues music is a genre that often hearkens back to the past. So when Billboard magazine proclaims guitarist and singer Michael Powers "the future of the blues," it's saying he's both a virtuoso and an innovator. That's no revelation to anyone who's heard "Murch" Powers chug through the rolling guitar

The elves were busy this year at Santa's Castle on Joint Base Lewis-McChord. "I think we've given out close to $200,000 worth of toys," said Shelly Hinzman, the vice president for inventory, as she inspected recently delivered books and toys. "Just to give you an idea about the generosity of some

Theater Review: Constructing The Great Society at Seattle Rep

Two years ago, my wife and I followed multiple suggestions to see playwright Robert Schenkkan's All the Way at Oregon Shakespeare Festival. They were right; that script's a masterpiece. OSF's production featured actor Jack Willis, riveting as President Lyndon Baines Johnson, plus charismatic Kenajuan Bentley as his sometime partner in

Visual Edge: Jean Nagia's "Correctional Fluid" at Salon Refu

I don't know how she does it. Susan Christian, owner of Salon Refu, keeps discovering artists of note. Or maybe they find her. The latest is Jean Nagia, an artist completely new to me. He painted the bright, geometric abstract mural on the side of Salon Refu, and he's working
