Veterans' organizations Run As One in Tacoma

Running through Tacoma's Point Defiance Park is like running through a cathedral of green, peace and quiet. For the members of Joint Base Lewis-McChord's Team Red, White and Blue (RWB), The Mission Continues and Team Rubicon the park offered the perfect spot at Owen Beach to launch the 4th annual

Apple Tree puts on its Babypants

Chris Ballew, lead singer for mid-'90s Seattle alt-rock outfit The Presidents of the United States of America, has a pair of Grammy nominations under his belt. His hit singles "Lump" and "Peaches" are fixtures on rock radio. So it's amusing that Ballew reentered the public consciousness, not as a middle-aged

JBLM teen Daniela Suarez named Washington Military Youth of the Year

While waiting to hear if she would be named as the Washington Military Youth of the Year during the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) Gala Dinner last week, Daniela Suarez repeated a mantra in her head. "I was saying, 'be positive, be positive,'" she remembered. "Then ... everyone was

Wednesday, April 8: 50 Jobs in 50 States

Like lots of college grads, Daniel Seddiqui was having a hard time finding a job. But in spite of more than 40 rejections, he knew opportunities had to exist. He then set out on an extraordinary quest: to work 50 jobs in 50 states in 50 weeks. And not just

Tuesday, April 7: One-Pot Meals Class

One of my favorite Far Side cartoons, by Gary Larson, depicts a pair of grizzled cowboys sitting around a campfire at dusk. One is handing the other a cup. The caption reads, "More cappuccino, Raoul?" Yes, times have changed. Campfire and simple cuisine continues to evolve. Bayview School of Cooking

Monday, April 6: The Boxers

Chicago quartet the Boxers start out their most recent LP, The Blue Pool, with washed-out snippets from Bobby Vinton's "Blue Velvet," distorted and sinister, before segueing into a sort of anthemic, melancholy rock. It's reminiscent of the days when the Flaming Lips were transitioning from stoned punks into the glorious

Monday, April 6: Charlie Saibel

Piano man Charlie Saibel is a superb musician, a versatile jazz/swing pianist and composer with an innovative sense of texture. He seems to have a lifelong fascination with genres, easily fitting in with honkey tonk, boogie woogie, blues, Latin, jazz, classic rock, plus seasonal and special occasions. He also morphs

Sunday, April 5: Intro To Intensive Methods and Soil Structure 101

So you walk through the grocery store, and you look at the big, shiny red apples, and you feel hungry. Then you notice just how big and red and shiny they all are. You get all suspicious and start remembering things about pesticides and growing seasons, and all of a

Saturday, April 4: Fruition

Much of the enjoyment of writing about and publicizing music comes from pleasant surprises. I admit I skimmed over Fruition's concert announcement the first time I came across it. I rolled my eyes when this trio of Portlandians described itself as "three-part-harmony-infused, melody-rich rock, country, folk and soul." That's like

Saturday, April 4: The Woolen Men

Portland trio the Woolen Men carry with them a number of easily identifiable influences that mix together in delightful ways. They bring the '50s rock by way of Violent Femmes, the stately indie pop of Guided By Voices, and the shambolic lo-fi rock of Pavement. It's ear candy for a

Friday, April 3-Sunday, April 5: The Jordan World Circus

The circus is a dying art - and the circus-lifer is a dying breed. Bearded ladies just don't go as far as they once did. Sure, someday there may be an iPhone app replicating the experience only achieved by rings of fire, balancing acts, crappy peanuts and captive wild animals.

Friday, April 3-Saturday, April 4: 2nd Annual South Sound Improv Comedy Festival

Comedy hasn't evolved much since the glory days of ventriloquist and puppet. Every so often, there's a Gallagher smashing watermelons or a musical funnyman like Jack Black, but for the most part, comedy is a dude on a stage with a microphone, plodding through a joke-punchline-new-joke routine. Boring! Well, that

Better juried show

The Second Annual Regional Juried Art Exhibition at the Fine Arts Center, South Puget Sound Community College, is far more consistent in quality than the first go-round last year. There’s nothing that really blows me away; it’s all rather typical modernist painting, sculpture and photography. But the overall quality is
