Gwyn’s Cookery & More
   Opening this week, a brand, spanking new 20’ mobile catering kitchen called Gwyn’s Cookery & More. Owned
by Gwyn Lofberg, the Cookery will offer lunches on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and dinners on Tuesday and
Thursday each week. Lunch is served from 11am to 1:30pm and dinner from 4pm to 6:30pm. Gwyn’s Cookery &
More will offer a wide variety of “Americano” style meals including everything from super sandwiches to pasta and
seafood.
   “At the Cookery, we believe change is good” says Gwyn. “What does that mean for you? It means lots of new
food selections every month for you to try.” The Cookery menus feature a wide variety of foods such as
sandwiches, salads, homemade bread & desserts, pasta dishes, chicken dishes and all the sides. Dishes such as
Halibut Florentine and Jack Halibut Melts will feature locally caught and processed seafood.
   The mobile kitchen will also feature Oven Ready Meals - a whole meal deal where the entree is either baked and
ready- to- eat or purchased chilled or frozen so you can bake it later. A great convenience for families that want
homemade meals without the fuss.
   Gwyn’s Cookery & More is also looking to help local small business owners like the charter boat operators and
B&B owners. Box lunches, snack packages and a variety of other food services will be available for business
charter captains who need to feed their hungry customers. The Cookery will deliver the meals to the Harbor by
7:30am each day. Gwyn has developed a specific menu that can be pre-ordered by a B&B guest and can be
delivered to the B&B for the guest to enjoy after a long day of fishing or hunting.
   The business will also offer catering services for events big and small, from business lunches to weddings.
   Gwyn, who has been cooking since the age of 8, was trained at the University of Johnson & Wales School of
Culinary Arts then went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in dietetics. “It’s a good combination for me, classic
cooking technique with scientific knowledge of foods. I believe you’ll see the proof in the quality of the food

        Kodiak College Upgrades to Microsoft Office 2007
                                     By Katie Walker, Kodiak College




         Due to community interest and a desire to be on the cutting edge, the Computer
      Information and Office Systems department at Kodiak College has upgraded to the latest
      greatest version of the Microsoft Office Suite: Office 2007.
         The first thing you'll notice about the new version is the redesigned user interface.
      Word's new "ribbon" is pictured above. The Ribbon is designed to be more intuitive with
      command tabs (similar to the former menu items but reorganized) that are placed in the
      order the user is likely to use them. Instead of a drop down list of commands, each tab
      shows a set of toolbar buttons when you click on it.


              Tip: The "Office button" has the same commands the old file


         Contextual commands (for working with tables, charts, etc.) appear only when the
      related object is selected (tricky for beginners who don't know you have to select an
      object before you can do anything with it!).
         Dialog launchers are the small arrow symbols in the lower-right corner of the
      command sets (e.g. See them above to the right of clipboard, font, etc.?). They provide
      more options.
         The new version of Office takes Galleries to the next level. For example, you'll have a
      gallery of Themes to choose the "look" (colors, fonts, etc.) of your Word document,
      Excel spreadsheet, or PowerPoint slide. Live Preview allows you to see what the styles
      will look like with your content before you commit!
         You can add buttons to the Quick Access Toolbar (see it above the home and insert
      tabs?) by right clicking a command and choosing Add to Quick Access Toolbar. There is
      also a Mini Toolbar that includes commonly used formatting tools. It appears when you
      select text. Office 2007 is a great upgrade!
