Teeing Off: Bakery turning off its oven
Expect the waistlines of Kodiakans to shrink over the next few months. For those who have not stopped playing Pokémon Go long enough to catch up on local news, Simply Awesome Bakery is closing.

Teeing Off: On the road
Nothing beats getting pummeled by a dog after six long days on the road — not even right-out-of-the-oven-melt-in-your-mouth cookies. When I walked through the door of the Clarkston apartment last Saturday, it was like Gizmo had not seen his daddy for a year.
