Another totem pole in Tacoma is coming down, although so far this one has drawn less controversy than the Tacoma Totem Pole in Fireman's Park did.
The totem pole at Portland Avenue Park is not nearly as old as the Fireman's Park pole, nor does it play a prominent role in Tacoma's history. It does,Read more

The 113-year-old home of Tacoma architect Stanley T. Shaw is being considered for inclusion on the Tacoma Register of Historic places.
It's not a big piece of history, but sometimes it's the little stories, not the big ones that really give you a sense of place. Todd Matthews over at the Tacoma Daily Index wrote a nice piece on the home and the architect who built it, as well as some other buildings still standing around town.
Whether or not the home is included in the list, it's an enjoyable tour of a little corner of Tacoma's history.Read more at Tacoma Daily Index
Althought Tacoma's economy took a bigger hit with the economic downturn, and although it has recovered more slowly, things are improving.
A Seattle Times article over the weekend takes a look at current economic conditions in Tacoma and Pierce County, and compares them to Seattle and King County, and the rest of the state.
The conclusion? "Tacoma faces some big challenges," but "Tacoma and Pierce County are essential elements of the Puget Sound economy. And the significant improvements there are good for the entire region."
Does the Tacoma described in the Seattle Times piece sound like the Tacoma you know?Read more at The Seattle Times
The Center for Data Science may be one of the less well-known departments at UW Tacoma, but it's doing some interesting and valuable work that is really putting the University on the map.
One project is a machine learning program developed in partnership with Multicare that could help hospitals significantly lower the rates of readmission for heart failure - improving patient health outcomes, and saving hospitals money. The Risk-o-meter analyzes more than 100 factors, producing risk scores that help doctors make decisions on patient care throughout the treatment process, and even after the patient has left the hospital.
You don't have to be much of a techie to know that big data is a big buzz word these days, and with an Affordable Care Act emphasis on reducing hospital readmissions, this technology hits a couple of hot topics right now.
It's exciting to see UWT getting attention for this innovative project.Read more at Gigaom.com
There's a bit of a shuffle in the works for a couple of Tacoma's better eating and drinking establishments, and their proprietors.
Jamie Kay of Top of Tacoma and Marrow, and her Marrow business partner Chef Kyle Wnuk will be leaving Marrow, and handing the business over to Chris Keil from Hilltop Kitchen (and formerly 1022) and his HK partner Matt Schweitzer.
Jamie's not going away, though - she just wants to focus her attention on Top of Tacoma. Chris and Matt will take over Marrow, and will still be at Hilltop Kitchen, which they opened less than a year ago.
Change can be scary, but we look forward to seeing what all the players involved have in store for us...Read more at Post Defiance
