Thanking veterans with food deals

This time of year, a thing happens where people put up flags and they show appreciation for all that the veterans do but often, that's where it ends.  You show up; you've served. Okay, thank you, buh-bye.  But we're inquisitive, and so we dug deep to find out who really

Guard celebrates Halloween with fun events

Running for candy isn't typically the theme to most organizational fun runs, but it is when only one day remains until the Camp Murray Washington National Guard Youth Program's Trunk or Treat event. Servicemembers not only had the opportunity to bring their children to a safe trick-or-treating environment in costume, but

Escape to Suncadia

Escape to Suncadia

Vacations are more than a mere trip out of town. A true vacation lifts you out of the daily grind, separating you in both mind and body from your everyday stresses and giving you a chance to relax and refresh in a way you can't always do at home. For

Healthy filmmaking

What's your all-time favorite film? The answers varied widely as I sat and listened to 17 soldiers respond. Everyone in room C-203 in the Stone Education Center agreed that they liked a particular film because it told a story that meant something to them. Storytelling is an ancient art, and films are just

How to get by

The story of a married couple dealing with deep waters of grief is one that's been explored a staggering number of times. Usually, this topic is dealt with in the somber way that you'd think of when contemplating how you'd react to loss. Sometimes, as is the case with Lars

As the weather turns, we head indoors. And we start thinking less about picking up that picnic food to go, and more about sitting down to something good. Fortunately, there's nothing stale with South Sound dining.  Here's a rundown of some eatery changes that happened while you were out boating. Possibly

Breakfast anyone?

Breakfast anyone?

My mother always said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but let's face it, most mornings I'm just pouring myself a bowl of cereal. But there are times, when Mom's words ring true, and I know I need a hearty breakfast to start the day.  This,

The simple sandwich

There seems to be a day or days in every week where there just isn't enough time during the day to do much of anything, including eat.  So, if you're like me, you simply grab something on the go. And because of this, I often surrender quality or sometimes even

Revisiting 'Art Aids America'

I must return to Tacoma Art Museum at least one more time to slowly peruse the "Art AIDS America" exhibition, which is likely the most affecting exhibition ever mounted at TAM and the most thorough exhibition on the AIDS epidemic ever mounted anywhere in America. There is simply too much

It took me years before I would even bother to look up the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, let alone listen to it. Just hearing the name was enough to turn me off. When I finally did make the time to listen, I realized that they were an absolutely batsh@* crazy

The life of a test pilot

The life of a test pilot

I had two longtime mental associations with F-16 fighter jets and the men who flew them.  The first was that they, the jets, were large hunks of metal used as backdrops, and the men who flew them wore aviator glasses and rode crotch-rocket motorcycles across the airfield to the beach

The Christmas shopping season is upon us once again. If the thought of wandering through crowded malls and fighting for turf in overflow parking lots while looking for the perfect gift for Uncle Frank and ending up with a tie ... again (even though Uncle Frank hasn't worn a tie

JBLM and China to work together

Working together toward a common goal is preferable to working against one another. Since January 2012, the United States has redefined its global securities priorities when it decided to rebalance toward the Asia-Pacific region. And Joint Base Lewis-McChord units are at the tip of that spear, even when it comes to

Project 22 benefits local vets

In 2012, the Veterans Administration released data showing that a minimum of 22 American soldiers commit suicide daily. The statistic inspired military veterans Doc King and Daniel Egbert to take a 6,500-mile trip on motorcycle from San Francisco to New York City, raise awareness about the high rate of suicide,

The Y of community

Over the front door to the Lakewood YMCA appear the words, "We're more than a gym - we're a cause." That is an accurate statement. Founded by George Williams in 1844, the YMCA, or Young Men's Christian Association, is a worldwide organization based in Geneva, Switzerland. The association's mission is to put

Thursday, Jan. 25 Johnny Walker and the Hitchhikers Whenever I discover a gifted songwriter, it excites me to no end.  I mean, anyone can write about new love, lost love, sex, broken dreams, etc., and those topics get a bit annoying to listen to after awhile.  Great songwriters can look outside the
