One would be hard-pressed to find a group of artists, at least in the modern era, who have been more intricately and consistently studied than the Beatles. Since emerging in 1963, the lives of John, Paul, George, and Ringo - individually and together - have been catalogued and documented to

'Elephant & Piggie's' "We Are in a Play"

Olympia Family Theater's Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play" is a small play that packs a big wallop for kids. I was not familiar with Mo Willems' series of children's books, Elephant & Piggy, before reading about them in the program. The stories about Gerald, the elephant and

We call this home

The exhibition of drawings and paintings by Kathy Gore-Fuss at Salon Refu offers proof positive that practice makes perfect. Gore-Fuss has been making art for a long time. She was one of the first artists I met when I moved to Olympia in 1988. She was good then, and she's

One good turn leads to another

Boy Scout Caleb Koyn now understands the power of a "good turn." A couple of Saturdays ago, Koyn and fellow Scouts from Steilacoom's Troop 71 gathered at the Cadence Fellowship House (CFH) in Tillicum to help Koyn complete his Eagle Scout Service Project. Maj. Brian Koyn, 7th Infantry Division deputy chaplain, is

This might be the first time a dish of nachos was good for someone's health. Patrons of The RAM may be surprised to find Easter-pink tortilla chips in their Mexican fare, but that ingredient is meant to raise awareness of breast cancer prevention and treatment. "Our nacho chip provider is

One of my favorite songs by Ween is a shady little ditty called "Zoloft." Coming from a band that once claimed to have recorded an album under the influence of huffed Scotchgard - though they later fessed up to this being a lie, just the "most slime-bag thing" they could

Shop for a mattress

How much is a good night's sleep really worth? According to one 20-year veteran in the mattress market, it's less about worth and more about our personal tastes and how much we want to spend. "A high price doesn't always correlate to a better bed. I've had customers find that a

LGI's new JBLM-adjacent housing developments

Looking for a first home can be a sizeable task. How do you know a good deal when you see one? Are you secretly being ripped off? This can be especially difficult when looking at newly built housing developments, where some homebuilders have methods of deceiving the buyer, so you

Buying a home can be filled with questions

Before you buy your first new home, before you write your name on that expensive, 30-year mortgage agreement, you might want to get some advice first. There's a lot to know.

Having renter's insurance is like having a parachute. If it's not there when needed, chances are its absence will be felt. Simply put, renter's insurance protects one from the risk of losing property.

Tacoma's culture is an interesting juxtaposition of being both right next to nature, but also having a strong inner-city feel that doesn't quite mix well with its woodsy surroundings. Unfortunately, many kids and teens in some of Tacoma's lower-income areas have been deprived of the opportunity to explore the South
