Still scared to pick up the sticks?

Bite Size

Carol Smaglinski
The Chork is just what it sounds like — a fork on one end, and chopsticks on the other. The Chork actually has three user options: the standard fork, trainer chopsticks (with the fork at the other end making it easier to handle) and standard chopsticks (the fork end snaps apart).

‘Deep’ thoughts

A dubious honor to win, we'll admit.


Gazette staff

Letters to the Editor

James Nimmo
In response to Jason Reese’s Feb. 9 Commentary (“Point: Legislate morality, Gazette), I would like to say that it’s one thing for Reese to have the courage of his personal convictions, but it’s quite another thing to urge passage of legislation that would use the police power of the state to impose his convictions on others.
