Check it out: Wonderful journey marks Dewey tour's end

It's the last Sunday of 2014, and I think it is appropriate to end the year with the final stop on the "Wonderful World of Dewey" tour. As you sit at home today, ruminating about the last 12 months, or perhaps gearing up — mentally, that is — for 2015 and all it has in store for the world, this fact cannot be denied: We spend a lot of time thinking about time. Of course, this is especially true right now, what with a shiny new 2015 about to boot out old, wrinkly 2014; but, in general, humans expend large portions of brain power musing about past, present, and future events.

Tasty sips, treats at Squeeze & Grind

In 1999 a small, drive-through Dairy Queen was transformed into Squeeze & Grind. In 2011, husband-and-wife team Jeramy and Marci Wilcox purchased the business. The mainstays of the menu are coffee and espresso beverages, fresh pastries from Marsee Baking in Portland, and real fruit smoothies. The coffeehouse keeps early hours for the commuting crowd and a drive-up window for on-the-go service, in addition to a petite indoor seating area.
