A course of therapy and hope

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

Korean War veterans receive special recognition during a barbeque lunch, open to the public, June 19 from 11-3 p.m. in Lakewood. The Korean Women's Association (KWA) will host the event at the American Lake Veteran's Hospital. The Korean War took place from 1950 to 1953, and over 1.8 million Americans served in that conflict,

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

Getting ready for a military ball is no small task. Decisions must be made, hairstyles chosen, dresses selected, makeup done. While many of these decisions are for women rather than men - surprisingly, not all of them are. After chatting with Juliee Anderson of Luxx Locks in Puyallup, we've compiled

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

Canary or crackpot?

It's unlikely you've ever heard of John M. Zielinski. There's a reason for that: he may well be a kook. But if he's not, there is more going on in Heaven and Earth than is dreamt of in your philosophy. Zielinski was an accomplished reporter by the time he shot photos

Epic punk cavalcade

Tacoma, as an entity, is both damned and elevated by our self-imposed status as a "gritty" city. The elements that bring us pride and outsiders fear - the vanishing buildings that bore all the markings of a city long past its prime, but with underground music scenes that made downtown

Changing schools?

Summer's here, and for a lot of Army families, that means permanent change of station orders to a new and often unfamiliar location. One of the biggest issues of moving for many families is getting their kids enrolled in a new school, said Chanel Sharp, school-liaison officer on Joint Base Myer-Henderson

Modern, funny, sexy and strong are a few words that fans have used to describe Katie Kenyhercz's literary series Las Vegas Sinners. The Sinners NHL Hockey Team takes center stage in Kenyhercz's hockey romance novels. Her soon-to-be-released fourth book, Home Ice, focuses on the character of Dylan, the NHL's youngest

Skate Jam to mark National Go Skateboarding Day

Ah, summer! When a young man's (or woman's) fancy lightly turns to thoughts of ... shredding! At least, it does if he or she is a skateboarder. If ollies, nollies, caballerials and grinds are your idea of a good time, and getting air leaves you feeling stoked, then you're going to

Solving The Mystery of Edwin Drood

The Mystery of Edwin Drood at Lakewood Playhouse is a deliciously funny romp through merrie olde England. Based on an unfinished novel by Charles Dickens, Drood is a musical comedy that asks the audience to vote on whodunit. What a fun and ingenious concept by Rupert Holmes, who wrote the

It takes 10 minutes in the presence of Col. David Kumashiro, out-going commander of McChord Field's 62nd Airlift Wing, to know he's not an egomaniac.  Self-deprecating, humble, on the margins of extroversion, Kumashiro prefers to use the "we" than the "me."  He also employs the word "team" so often that
