Thanks for the donation
My husband brought home recently a donation for my ALS bake sale fundraiser on March 7. To the woman who gave her donation to one of my volunteers who works at Safeway, I would like to say, "Thank you very much!” Her donation will be sent to the ALS Evergreen Chapter in Kent, Washington, which has Alaska in its territory. There is no ALS chapter in our state. — Sarah Thayer

I don’t consider myself a connoisseur of college hoops. But when it comes to the opening weekend of March Madness, I am all in. It is the best four days in sports. Heartbreak. Upsets. Buzzer-beaters. Cinderellas. The NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament has it all. And, I can’t get enough. Gizmo and I spent Friday and most of Saturday — it was so nice we had to get out of the apartment to have a catch — on ...

But often times, when the catastrophe is separated from the present by the non-penetrable barrier of time, people can see humor in the details of misfortune. When Neil Sargent and his wife, the late June Sargent, reflected on the 1964 Good Friday earthquake and tidal wave, which snatched their Mission Road home, they found something to lau...

Coastal Forager: Sea veggies a plentiful, tasty resource
