Expanded child care for troops

High-quality, affordable child care is critical for military parents. But the type of child care they need can vary widely. Some families need regular full-time care, other families need more flexible, on-demand services, and some families need both. To help meet the growing and diverse needs of military parents, the Department

Susie Ristuben

Susie Ristuben needs no introduction, but a friend offers one anyway: “This is Susie. Isn’t she fabulous?” Fabulous is right. Just don’t tell her that unless you want to make her blush. She balks at the term “socialite” and shrugs off the suggestion that she’s somebody in Tacoma/Gig Harbor society. But

Mishmash

You’ve seen the shoulder bags made out of duct tape. How about those that have seat belts salvaged from old cars and junkyards that are used as tote bag straps complete with chunky metal push button clasps? The tote bags are Mishmash, a design line created by Allison Kline in

Dave’s Meats and Produce So close to my home I could walk, Dave’s Meats and Produce has the most sensational meat counter and the nicest folks working there. Fresh cuts, prepped and ready to cook, broil, sauté or grill provide an easy answer to “what will I prepare for dinner tonight?”

Samurai's Hurricane

While it’s great to have brothers to give me wedgies, teach me about heavy metal and take slapshots at my face when they play street hockey, I’m especially thankful that I have sisters. Everything I know about girls I learned from them (and from watching “The Facts of Life”). My

Visiting two favorite haunts

It is that time of year people. I finally got sick. It is tough not to succumb to it when everyone around you is hacking and sneezing. I never stood a chance. I did the obsessive hand washing, antibacterial soap, Emergen-C, and Zicam, which really helped the severity, because everyone

"Mad Money" not worth much

There is something called “found poetry.” The term refers to anything that was not written as poetry, but reads as if it were. I would like to suggest a new category: found reviews. These are not really reviews, but serve the same function. I found one just now, and after

"Blood" on the edge of greatness

The voice of the oil man sounds made of oil, gristle and syrup. It is deep and reassuring, absolutely sure of itself and curiously fraudulent. No man who sounds this forthright can be other than a liar. His name is Daniel Plainview, and he must have given the name to

Advice Goddess

Klan do attitude I’m in a relationship with a man I love and want to spend my life with, but I can’t stand his 6-year-old daughter. She’s obnoxious, has a smart mouth, and is being taught some wicked racism by her mother and her mother’s family. I’ve never tolerated bigotry, and

Jenny Richardson

I resigned myself long ago to the fact that I will never be a model. With a 5’4” frame and no desire to starve my curves away, it’s just not something that’s in my future. But I still love fashion and enjoy an occasional weekend night at the Swiss to

Go pro

Tucked back next to Chevy’s Restaurant off 38th Street in Tacoma, The Salon Professional Academy of Tacoma waits. It waits for you to lift up those limp locks, look at your splintered ends and let out that sigh. You know, the one that says, “All right, I know I need
