TEEING OFF: Gizmo is thankful for his brother, PJ
While I spent most of Thanksgiving Day at work, Gizmo enjoyed the day with his brother, Pepper Jack. It was the first Turkey Day the two spent together. Pepper Jack, a 6-year-old Japanese Chin, joined the family during the summer. His mom adopted him while I was in Anchorage coaching baseball. I was fine with one dog, but mom thought Gizmo needed a friend. Gizzy is thankful for that as he now has a pal to watch sp...

Have a merry coming to this Advent
Today is one of those Kodiak winter days where the fog and clouds are so thick that you wonder if the sun really rose that day (and you suspect that it didn't), and the rest of the world and its problems seem so far away, as though Kodiak were in some kind of bubble that has drifted off from Earth. Being the day before Thanksgiving, on the other side of Thanksgiving from Black Friday, the streets are only normally...

GIFT GUIDE: Baker opens shop in Mill Bay apartment
If you have tasted Sam Stahlhut’s cinnamon rolls, it is hard to believe he was banned from cooking for his family. Why? It involved a lasagna layered with 10 pounds of cheese. “You couldn’t chew it,” said Sam’s mother, Karen Stahlhut. “It probably cost me at least $100 for this lasagna.” According to Sam, it was worth every penny. “Best lasagna of my life,” he said. “I wish I had a time machine so I could go back ...

TEEING OFF: Kodiak Special Olympic team strikes for 50 medals at state bowling games
For years I’ve thought about joining the Special Olympic bowling team, but never did because practices were on Sundays, and that day was reserved for the Seahawks.

MOUNTAIN VIEW: Traveling with kids
My mom once said that traveling with children on an airplane is like traveling with little time bombs. You never know when they're going to go off. And when they do go off, its not going to be pretty. On our recent family trip out East for the Thanksgiving holiday, I was the ticking time bomb.
