Spring Concert Preview

As Tom Lehrer immortally said, "Spring is here! Su-pa-ring is here! Life is skittles and life is beer!" We've made it through the terrible wasteland of the temperate winter, and we've lived to come out on the other side: spring. How do we show our benevolent gods that we are thankful

The beautiful ugliness of Pile

I normally don't make it a point to ask about their band name. For the most part, it's nonsense anyway. No one takes the time to ask Steely Dan or Pearl Jam or the Flaming Lips about their vaguely gross names. (Incidentally, I wonder if Steely Dan all shouted "F---!"

Margaret Dilloway then and now

Chances are you've heard enough quotes about hard work and persistence that if you followed half of them you could have achieved most of your life's dreams by now. But who does that, right? Every once in awhile, though, you meet someone who proves all those motivational sayings aren't just

Life is a beach

What is it about a day at the beach? The invigorating sea air? The fresh breezes? The refreshing sounds of ocean waves? Scenery that makes your heart and spirit sing? Fascinating marine and animal life? The relaxing and contemplative pace? Whatever one's reason for visiting the beach, the Pacific Northwest has an

Ocean towns

The Tacoma area has no shortage of water with Puget Sound shorelines left and right, and lakes (some with sandy beaches and boat launches) dotting Pierce County. But sometimes you need more. Sometimes you need the ocean! Fortunately, the ocean is a two- to three-hour drive away. Even better, there

Let's face it - whether you are new in town or were stationed here years ago and stayed on when you retired, we're all looking for something new and exciting to do. And as the weather warms up and the sun beats down upon our faces, it's nearly impossible not

Clearwater Casino

Clearwater Casino

Tucked along a picturesque shoreline in Suquamish, on the Kitsap Peninsula not too far from Poulsbo, is the Clearwater Casino and Resort - the Puget Sound's only waterfront casino. Just a short drive from Tacoma or a ferry ride from Seattle, and you can kick back on a water-view deck

The Cushman Trail

It's coming. What you ask? The Open. The 2015 US Open. One of the largest golf events in the country (the world?) will be held in June at our very own Chambers Bay. And it is rapidly approaching like a ginormous, bloated Jabba the Hutt, taking everything over in its path. I'm very fond

Camping at Mt. Rainier

Mt. Rainier is not far at all from Joint Base Lewis-McChord - just a little over an hour from most parts of Tacoma, and only slightly farther from the Olympia area. At 14,411 feet, Mt. Rainier is difficult to miss and a prominent fixture on the horizon. It's even better

The Metro Tacoma Fencing Club

Whether you're young or old, fit or still getting there, fencing can be a great physical activity - one that not only develops cardiovascular fitness, balance and strength, but also engages your mind. Perhaps you've never picked up a sword, sabre or foil, but it doesn't matter. You too can

Bibliotopia

By some standards, Seattle is the most literate city in the United States. Its ratio of college graduates approaches three out of five adults. Its libraries get used more frequently than most cities', and South Lake Union-based Amazon is the national bookstore of choice. Portland just missed the top 10

We've experienced an unseasonably warm, dry winter in the Pacific Northwest, but don't bust out the sun block just yet. There will be plenty of rain in the coming months, (April showers bring May flowers) so we've compiled a list of weather-friendly activities, all on a wallet-friendly budget. When the forecast

Bourbon

Bourbon

I am a lover of the bourbon. Whiskey, Rye, Irish and Kentucky Mash are all the bees knees in this gal's book. The complex flavors pair well while dining out, and bourbons are good for sipping, which is my preferred method of imbibing. Thoughtful people sip; deep and compelling minds

Cool Avenue

A walk down Sixth Avenue - or 6th Ave - is to stroll headlong into some cool Tacoma history. "One of the best things about Sixth Ave is that there's a small town feeling here," said Brittany Stefansson as she waited on customers at Shakabrah Java.   "Ninety percent of our customers

JBLM soldier launches crowdfunding for Infinite Obstacles

The challenge of Infinite Obstacles is for you to "get over yourself." "I've seen the simplest obstacles make people question their physical strength and recognize their fears," said Staff Sgt. Kristopher Xaros as we sat in a coffee shop. A child of the military, Xaros has served for 14 years, earning numerous
