Saints and cheapskates

The Weekly Volcano’s work is never done (or appreciated). Not only do we painstakingly plan out your evening itinerary, lazybones, but we’re also required to unearth activities that appeal to all personality types. Today, our little spotlight dance focuses on two categories of people: saints and cheapskates. Saints, because you’re nice

The Frenchman

Ryan Loiselle, whose bright and groovy work graces the Weekly Volcano’s “Best of Tacoma” special section, is kind of a solitary guy, though he considers an impressive list of people his friends. And though he’s been involved creatively with institutions like Art Chantry and the Rocket, Nirvana and Tacoma punk

Young and happening

Something that I admire more than anything is young entrepreneurial hipsters who are working their business, making a big difference here in this T to the Town. I try to frequent their places as much as possible because I have so much respect for the fact that they’ve thrown themselves in

Transitioning vets are great employees

An estimated 500 soldiers and airmen that will be leaving Joint Base Lewis-McChord each month for the next few years as the military downsizes will all be asking the same question. What's next? Finding that next job will be a tough challenge in a struggling economy with high employment. A three-person panel from

Raven's Challenge

An explosion rocks the ground as a shockwave rips through the air. Smoke billows from the shattered windows of a city bus. Chaos ensues as screaming victims scramble to exit the twisted wreckage. Wounded and deaf passengers with a constant ringing in their ears stumble about the aftermath of the
