Celebrating patriotism

In his inaugural address, President John F. Kennedy called out, "Ask not what your country can do for you.  Ask what you can do for your country." Each year, the Puget Sound Chapter of Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) hosts a Massing of the Colors event to celebrate active-duty

The Betties are back!

A blend of beautiful aggression, punk-rock-inspired attire, and sinuous athleticism, women's roller derby embodies a fun and feisty sport that is enjoyed by participants and spectators alike.

History in a dry dock

Sitting on large wooden blocks at the Lake Union Dry Dock Company, the USS Turner Joy (DD-951) looked large and naked. Lifts, generators and other tools surrounded the ship's hull. The gritty remains of sanded-off paint and water converged and covered the bottom of the dock. Once a new coat of high-quality

A day in Port Townsend

Port Townsend is a Victorian seaport with a rich maritime history located on the Olympic Peninsula. On a sunny day, panoramic views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca compete with those of the Olympic mountain range.  It is no surprise, with the natural and historic beauty surrounding Port Townsend,

Pacific Northwest Explorers discover local products

The Pacific Northwest (PNW) Explorers' February adventure focused on two local products, Johnny's Seasoning Salt and Almond Roca.

Canada clobbers U.S. at 23rd annual game

I've said before that we only sleep soundly at night because of "rough men (and women)" who watch over us, and the servicemembers of the Western Air Defense Sector (WADS) based out of Joint-Base Lewis-McChord are a prime example of these brave people doing what they do best. WADS is the

Theater has always held a special place in my heart. Whether it was Broadway's legendary Wicked, or a hometown performance of Pirates of Penzance, it's an opportunity for everyone to gather and celebrate this art form. Growing up it was something that Mom and Dad always drug you to because

It's easy for Americans to get the false impression that Islam is a mostly Arabian religion. In fact, only about one in eight Muslims around the world is ethnically Arab, and only one in five speaks Arabic as a primary language. The country with the highest Muslim population, at 205

For as long as I can remember, depression has been a part of my life. I didn't think anything of it, this persistent weight on my shoulders and ache in my heart. Winston Churchill famously characterized depression as a black dog, sitting in his lap and never giving him peace.

Tacoma artist Lacey Reuter was only 17 years old when she created the "Harlem Renaissance" paintings now on display at American Art Company, said gallery director Tammy Radford.

John Patrick Shanley's Doubt, A Parable, has earned the rare honor of taking home the trifecta of awards: the Tony, the Academy Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Chances are you've seen the film starring the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, but if you have not seen it live on stage -
