Garden Gate: Baking with gooseberries and currants
Puzzles are fun, especially when it involves something near and dear to us, like food. Years ago, during one of our dinner cruises, I served a dessert made with a secret ingredient. (I often do this as an excuse to try something new, and to educate guests at the same time). After Marty set a plated dessert at each place setting and began to pour coffee, I stepped in from the galley to describe what’s before them. ...

Small stars as a kick returner
Jay-Ar Small is a man of few words. “He is a quiet kid,” Kodiak football coach Jim Schnick said. “I have known Jay-Ar for four years and I can’t get him to talk to me.” Small might not talk much, but that is OK with the coach, because his play does all the talking for him.

Prep picks: Another one for the dog
Last week’s column about Gizmo really caught the attention of the readers. Despite another horrendous performance — I went 4-4 last week — I will not call on Gizmo for my picks this week. I know that disappoints you. However, I will give you a Gizmo story instead. Earlier this week, I woke up one night to go the bathroom.
