ANNOUNCER: As part of a property that holds a plant nursery, garden (complete with reception area for 300 people), full-fledged windmill, picture-perfect gazebo, florist shop and Mama Stortini's catering facilities, Windmill Bistro in Sumner is just one of many points of interest. Housed in the restored Sandland home, the bistro menu focuses on Pacific Northwest cuisine. The restaurant has been open since 2002, and the menu showcases native plants, herbs, meats and seafood. Currently serving lunch and weekend breakfast, dinner service will begin in May.

The Diversity Film Festival opens Wednesday in Tacoma

Courtesy Graphic - Diversity Film Festival


Only six films compose the Diversity Film Festival at the Grand (April 6 - 18), each one a meditation on the theme of cultural diversity. The concept began a few miles (and years) away from the Grand, at Tacoma Community College. Dr. Scott Earle, a TCC English and Humanities instructor since 1999, along with fellow teachers and staff, has hosted on-campus film screenings of this sort for some time. A suggestion was made to Earle and his colleagues in late 2010 to graduate their young program - let it leave the classroom and test its wings in the community.
