The outdoors rocks

Being outside is freedom by another name. "The outdoors, a lot of times, is about freedom," Ed Bronsdon, the executive director of Outdoors for All, said in a recent news article. Begun in 1979 at Snoqualmie Pass in order to teach 15 children with disabilities to ski, the Seattle-based foundation is dedicated

Blanketeers to the rescue

With his security blanket over his shoulder, Linus van Pelt, the loveable Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts comic strip character, lives on in the work of Project Linus.

12th Annual Tacoma Film Festival

We've survived the cruelly sun-filled dystopia of summer, and have come out on the other side in the slightly darker autumn. Movies suddenly become better. With big theaters soon filling up with Oscar bait, the Tacoma Film Festival (TFF) also returns, celebrating its 12th year of existence, and its selection is

Creative Colloquy Crawl in downtown Tacoma

"Back in the day when I was your age." This was something Grandpa always told you when he was about to tell you an epic story about something great. It was usually about how he walked to and from school, uphill both ways in the snow. Either way, you sat

ANNOUNCER: The Southern Kitchen's downhome scratch Southern cooking is hardly a secret to anyone that's been in town long enough to ask, "where's a good place to eat?" This week, Jackie and Dutch visit what has been a mainstay since 1995 to enjoy what is often boasted as a favorite

Almost Paradise

Almost Paradise

I enjoyed opening night of Footloose at Tacoma Musical Playhouse. It's a rocking good, high-energy show with great music and dancing. The music is mostly up-tempos rock and roll blended with a touch of gospel and show tunes, and an occasional sweet love song such as the beautiful "Almost Paradise,"

Faculty and staff exhibition at SPSCC

When walking into the art gallery at South Puget Sound Community College, the first thing to greet the eye is a curtain of hanging white porcelain shapes suspended by clear monofilament line. It is like a bead curtain, but it is not beads. It is a representation of genome sequencing.

Dark pop concepts

Concept albums have existed for decades, utilizing a record's full length and capabilities to tell one unifying story. Usually, though, these albums function like short stories: a band or artist gets a bug of an idea and crafts a narrative through 40 or 80 minutes of music. At their most

It must be the water

Three Air Force combat controllers had been left behind. In May 1968, two North Vietnamese Army (NVA) regiments attacked the Army's Special Forces camp at Kham Duc in South Vietnam. The base had a 6,000-foot asphalt runway; wooded hills surrounded the area. In early May, the NVA occupied the hills and began to

Military Life

A single experience in Olympia

Being single isn't always a bad thing. Am I right? A night out on the town is usually cheaper, more spontaneous and definitely more unpredictable when you're flying solo. So why shouldn't we embrace the untethered lifestyle when the opportunity presents itself -- especially when nearby haunts like Olympia offer

South Sound clinics offer cutting-edge therapy

Considering what they do over a lifetime, it is no wonder that the joints and bones of the feet are often among the first parts of the body to show signs of overuse. Fallen arches, arthritis, tendonitis and fasciitis can make even simple tasks painful and exhausting. Since 2002, Foot
