The first Yelm UFO Fest is set to launch this weekend, and organizers are preparing to welcome visitors from beyond. Or at least beyond Yelm. The festival also features the Cosmic Symposium, a speaker series at Triad Arts Theater. JZ Knight also will speak.
Black Bear Diner is now open in South Hill, a month after the first Pierce County location opened in Lakewood. The restaurants are known for big portion sizes, breakfast served all day and a menu of diner classics.
