Playful Lakewood

Lakewood is regarded by most as a working-class town. Its own website calls it a "host community to Joint Base Lewis-McChord." All well and good, but nothing about that identity screams "playground," though that is the theme for a new exhibit opening there. It may surprise you, then, to learn

Intriguing installations

I search my mind and my memory banks for clues as to the meanings of Nathan Orosco's installation, "Take It to the Bridge" and Sarah Casto's "We Part to Meet Again," but I can't imagine what must have been going through the artists' minds - what message, if any, they

Women and men

Look. Women and men? They be different. Driving, shopping, asking for directions, watching sports, cooking their own food, planning weddings, being prone to or shunning commitment, knowing how to set the time on your VCR, etc. These are struggles we deal with every day of our lives! Luckily, there is

Getting fit with the kid

Motherhood is a huge adjustment. For many women, especially new moms who stay home with their babies or work from home, it can be an isolating and difficult time. However, a program in DuPont and Lacey helps bring moms and their kids together for fun, fitness and friendship. Fit4Mom is one

Vacation Bible schools near JBLM

I have great memories of Vacation Bible School (VBS) from when I was young. I loved singing songs, doing crafts and making new friends.  Vacation Bible Schools have come a long way since then. Now there are fun themes, fancy snacks and planned activities (some even have T-shirts and awesome

Farmers market season is upon us. Get ready for sunny days, warm weather and fresh, local fruits and vegetables. We're incredibly lucky to live in such a fertile area and have access to so many local farms and markets.  What better way to buy local and support small businesses than

Best places to watch the U.S. Open

If you're expecting the typical sports bars and restaurants to make up my list of best places to view the U.S. Open, you would be mistaken. This article is for the viewer who wants to view the most exciting event to be hosted by the Northwest since, well, last December's

Top five golf courses in the South Sound

Although I am not usually a writer, everyone on our staff suggested I write this story when we discussed featuring the top golf courses in the South Sound. Looks like my occasional runny nose, cough and low-grade fever on warm Friday afternoons aren't fooling anyone. In order to bring some

Currently, Grandview, the road in front of the U.S. Open is closed until after the tournament, more than a week later. Your opportunity to has come to an end. But, once the hoopla is over, you may return, and the best way to check out the enhancements and changes is on

Dining at the course

The U.S. Open has us thinking a lot about golf, but also a little about food. And while it is near impossible at this point to get tickets to the big show, you can hang out on some other courses in the area to at least get close to the

When I am dead and gone, I hope to be incinerated and have my ashes scattered in a greenside bunker on whatever my favorite golf course is at the time. Then, whenever someone's ball lands in the bunker and he or she has to blast out of it, it's possible

He leans over his favorite putter, sweat and concentration marking his face. The stakes have never been higher. He's dominated this course for years, even as duffers like me dogged his heels and threatened his supremacy. He draws back, then taps the ball with laser precision. Spectators gasp as the

The green right arm of Tom Barry caught my eye. I wondered if he had some sort of medical condition, so I whimsically asked him. "No," he said with a smile. "This is what I've collected today working out here, and it's darn good work, too." Since March of 2014, the leadership

Military veterans wanting to further their education are now exempt from paying out-of-state tuition at any public college, no matter the state. Last year, Congress enacted the waiver and it will go into effect starting in the fall semester 2015. The bill - which is called the Veterans Access, Choice and

Five great beach hikes

The South Sound includes a lot of waterfront. From Tacoma to Olympia, you'll find plenty of stretches of waterside perfect for a stroll or a hike, some well-groomed and paved, and still others wild and untamed (well, at least less tamed). There are few better ways to enjoy the Northwest. On

Tartuffe: A laugh riot

Theater Artists Olympia brings a comedy by 17th century French writer Molière to the Midnight Sun, and it is as funny today as it must have been in Paris 48 years after the death of Shakespeare (whom I mention because lines from Shakespeare are quoted in Tartuffe, probably intended as
