Christmas is coming and a great present for family members is a ticket to the Lakewood First Lions Club’s fifth annual Crab Feed at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 27th, at the Clover Park Technical College’s Sharon McGavick Conference Center.
Christmas Angels, Joan Eisenhardt and Kathy Sweeney, and a fabulous crew of volunteers at Greater Lakes Mental Health Care are up to good again. I said, “Up to good,” not up to no-good.
Camping was all the rage in the 1950s. It was a family activity and was affordable. My family would generally go to the ocean (which meant Ocean Shores/Ocean City/Copalis) or Packwood. And I remember once we went “around the loop,” which is what traveling the Washington peninsula from the Tacoma area to Port Angeles to […]
“Why do holiday stories always include transportation? I mean there were even travelers involved in the story of Jesus of Nazareth.” I was talking to myself, of course, but the guy at the table behind me laughed. I didn’t realize I had said it out loud. I turned and looked. A guy in his mid-sixties […]

Today there are an unprecedented amount of financial incentives available for building energy efficiently. These incentives come from State and Federal government, utilities, manufacturers and others. Together they add up to thousands of dollars per house. Most of this money can only be accessed if a systems analysis is performed. John Bushnell of Bushnell Energy […]
Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest impact. Who would have thought that the simple folding art of origami could help space exploration and save lives around the world? NASA physicist and origami author Robert Lang has been working with a team developing a powerful space telescope. The lens is in the form […]
On this Pearl Harbor Day, as Americans pause to honor and remember this 76th Anniversary when 2,403 citizens of the United States lost their lives, so here following is a reflection (appearing in this publication six years ago) of what it means when, as it turns out, there are those of us who won’t be […]
Last May, a few blocks away from where we live, a black bear was treed and removed by the Lakewood police and fire department. I was at home and had no clue that the giant animal had waddled down one main road after another without interception. Funny enough, it worried me less afterwards than what […]
