Employers focus on wellness, workforce health

The definition of employer-sponsored health care is expanding. It exceeds insurance coverage and now includes healthcare service. The change is being led locally by the United Way of Mason County and five companies of the Lakeshore Employer Resource Network (LERN), which have pooled resources to form the LERN Health Center.

Dinner for $10 or less: A Polish treat from Busha’s kitchen

The Four Corners Churches just published a cookbook, and while browsing through it I came across a recipe for Kwas from Dot Brown of Grace Episcopal Church. It reminded me of the meals my grandmother (Busha in Polish) used to make. Simple, earthy, and guaranteed to stick to your ribs.  Dot’s recipe was for soup, but I modified it  to make it more substantial. The ingredients might seem a little unusual, but trust me, it’s tasty. I paired it with homemade kluski (dumplings to you non-Polish people) which my mom used to make for us whenever she served pork. I had never made them myself, but I do remember many times grating the potatoes. Now I know why she gave me the job. But don’t despair. It’s not that difficult and you’ll build up some arm muscles while doing it. Comments (0)
