Madigan doctor wins prestigious award

Motivation empowers mentorship. "I've had fantastic mentors, both men and women," explained Lt. Col. (Dr.) Cristin Mount, the chief of Madigan Army Medical Center's Department of Medicine. She leads a team of 320 civilian and military staff that conduct 180,000 outpatient visits and sees 3,800 inpatients annually. "There is something to be said

Wounded warrior band, Vetted, to perform

Each day, 22 wounded warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury commit suicide, according to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. That amounts to 8,000 veterans per year taking their own lives. Vetted, the first nationally recognized all-wounded warrior rock band based in Houston, Texas, believes one solution

I can't help but wonder why in the world any actor or any director or producer would want to do Romeo and Juliet when it's already been done so many times in so many ways. Niclas Olson said, "I think a lot of it has to do with how much

It's Greek to Me

It's Greek to Me has been an institution in Tacoma for over 22 years, and if you've ever grabbed a gyro from the drive-thru, then you have been part of their success over the years.  This past spring, owner Jim Wick made the move across the street. The new location

'Creative Cowboys'

I have never been a huge fan of cowboy art, so I was surprised to find I actually enjoyed "Creative Cowboys" and its companion show, "Saddles, Spurs and Quirts" as much as I did. "Creative Cowboys" celebrates cowboy culture in the Pacific Northwest from art about cowboy festivals and rodeos from

Catchy and ragged

I've said it countless times in articles I've written about bands in the almost seven years I've been doing this, but that's because it's truly stuck with me in the way that most insights in music journalism don't: "The better the person's voice, the harder it is to believe what

Last August, former Army Ranger, Justin Shine, of the 2nd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, attended a benefit release party at Narrows Brewing Company on 19th street in Tacoma to highlight Narrows Brewing's latest achievement, "Lead the Way IPA."

On Nov. 25, 1968, 1st Lt. San D. Francisco and Maj. Joseph Morrison flew a reconnaissance-escort mission along the border of North Vietnam's Quang Binh province and Laos. While he had flown his requisite 100 missions to conclude his tour, Francisco, a native of Washington, volunteered to fly that day. He flew

Powerlifting team regulates the competition

The United States military has long been known for overwhelming power, dedication, determination, and doing what many are not willing to do. A small group of soldiers at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) has chosen to take its training to the next level and bring even more honor into the JBLM

Caring for caregivers

When the strongest of the strong come back compromised, the people who once depended on them become the ones depended on. When a spouse is left home during a deployment, he or she holds down the fort and yearns desperately for that helping hand and supportive shoulder to return.  But that

New medical option coming

In the Puget Sound area, it is estimated that the presence of military and former military personnel is significantly larger than in any other market. As this group continues to grow, it is a wonder why there are only two major locations off-base where military retirees and families of active-duty

Chilling on ice

For many soldiers, it's their home away from home. When they're on the ice at Tacoma's Puget Sound Hockey Center, when they put on their skates and grab their hockey sticks and chase that skidding hockey puck, all is right with their world. "I think it's a way  to make it feel

Bundle up and see the snow

One of the many great things about living in Washington is the proximity to outdoor adventures, and now is the perfect time of year for snow enthusiasts. Although there may not be any snow on the ground here, that doesn't mean it can't be found.  On the contrary, snow abounds

There are writers who classify Portland-based Pink Martini as a lounge band, but it's clearer to call it a danceable jazz combo with international flair. Pianist Thomas Lauderdale was hoping to be mayor someday and founded Pink Martini in 1994 as a backing band for political fundraisers. His plan derailed when

In one way, dear reader, it would be very difficult for me to describe the plot of Arcadia without spoiling it for you; in another way, it may actually be impossible for me to spoil this play to anyone. Going into this production, the managing artistic director of the Lakewood

'Transitions and Reflections'

The term "Textile Paintings" is my term, not the artists and not the gallery's. It's what I see as the best possible descriptor of Barbara Lee Smith's art at The Gallery at Tacoma Community College. It's neither fabric art nor painting, and yet it combines some of the best elements

You can be forgiven for thinking that Marion Walker is some rootsy folk singer from the ‘60s that was lost to the sands of time, or that she may be a retro-leaning find that is being groomed by producers that would like to snake their way into the currently profitable
