The Woodbury puppet wagon began its 2016 summer season with a bang. The puppet wagon hosted a preview party on June 8 to an audience of about 150 people, said Elizabeth Owens, recreation specialist. Typically, each puppet show sees a turnout of about 20 to 30 kids, Owens said. The puppets will come out to play for 23 shows per week in 22 different parks during the summer season, which runs through mid-August.
Sarah Masood, a 2016 Woodbury High School graduate, has officially closed the pages of high school but is already opening a new chapter as she puts the finishing touches on her very own book. Masood, 17, said her forthcoming book, titled "The Trilogy of Dreams," is a mix of action, adventure, science fiction and coming-of-age genres. Masood was inspired to write a fairy tale by her "weird and surreal childhood dreams," she said.
The strawberries are ready to go at Afton Apple, and so is Randy Sambolt, one of the orchard's longest-standing employees. With a smile on his face and a love for the loyal berry-picking community, Sambolt drives his golf cart filled with picked berries back and forth from the fields to the hut where the berries are sold. This will be Sambolt's 18th season at Afton Apple, 14421 S. 90th St. in Denmark Township, near Hastings. Sambolt has worked for Afton Apple longer than any other staff member, aside from the family of owners.

Original. That's the word that Mary Bolger wants her customers to think of when she shows them their finished product. "What has worked well for me is being able to customize everything," Bolger said. "That's the niche that this business has." Bolger runs her own buisness, Cookies and Cakes by Mary Bolger, out of her home. From grad parties to bridal showers to sporting events, Bogler bakes and decorates for them all.
It was the college staple food that could last in a dorm room cabinet for decades. Now, Jimmy Xiao is hoping to reinvent the idea of ramen cuisine with his new Woodbury restaurant, "Ramen Station." Ramen Station, 1960 Donegal Drive, #15, opened its doors in City Center Marketplace in January. After frozen yogurt shop "Freeziac" vacated, the space was left empty for about a year before Xiao decided to move in, he said.
