Chamber cookies on the loose again

Bridgeport Chamber of Commerce president Charlene Knox has been baking cookies, and some of them have escaped again, and are out there hiding in Bridgeport businesses today, Thursday, Dec. 18, waiting for residents to come find them. Cookies are hiding at CJ's Auto, the Coulee Dam Credit Union, the Bridgeport NCNB branch, or Yaretzi Dollar Store. Actually, it's a Chamber promotion to get people into Bridgeport stores to take a look around, Knox said.
