Renton (and loaf of bread) star in FilmFrenzy

The loaf of white bread started in Greenfresh Market and ended in a kitchen in downtown Renton. Along the way the loaf visited a donkey statue, the Piazza, an Australian shepherd and many downtown Renton neighborhoods.

Moviegoers file into the new Regal Cinemas Stadium 14 The Landing Stadium 14; the grand opening was Friday.

The Regal has landed in Renton

Alaina St. Clair lives in Renton. But she doesn’t go to movies in Renton. She calls the city’s theaters old and “kind of nasty.” She and her daughter Chanel, 4, made an exception Wednesday. Instead of catching a movie at their usual spot, downtown Seattle’s ritzy Pacific Place shopping mall, the pair headed to the new Regal Cinemas at The Landing, officially called Regal Cinemas The Landing Stadium 14.

PORK LOIN CHEF: Alyssa Paredes

I moved to the Renton area from El Paso, Texas, two years ago. I’ve always had a passion for great cooking; and after I found out that Renton Technical College had a great Culinary Arts program, I pretty much jumped for the opportunity. This is my second quarter and I love it. My goals after graduation are to become a certified culinarian from the American Culinary Federation and, long-term, own my own restaurant.

RENTON FOOD AND WINE: Fruity wine works best with this pork

Autumn has arrived and it is the perfect season for Spiced Rubbed Pork Loin. Pork loin is one of the leanest cuts of meat and pairs perfectly with white wines, especially Gewürztraminer (pronounced geh-vertz-tra-mihner). Pork loin needs a wine that is low in tannins and mild in flavor ao as to not overpower the flavor of the pork. If the pork is made with fruit, then a soft and fruity wine works best.

Valley Medical Center gives scarves for survivors of breast cancer

Valley Medical Center’s scarf project started small. Give a scarf a week to a breast-cancer survivor during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Then the scarves started coming in. Enough for a scarf an October day to a survivor. Now enough for a scarf to every breast cancer survivor who comes into Valley Medical Center during October. And then some.
