SWISS STEAK: THE IMPROVED VERSION OF A CLASSIC RECIPE By Paul Nehring, From NewGrass Farm, LLC, www.newgrassfarm.com Swiss steak was a mainstay of our home kitchen, when I was young, mainly because it was a way to make inexpensive cuts of beef taste taste reasonably good. However, it wasn’t one of my favorite dishes, because even after braising for a couple of hours, the meat was still relatively dry and bland. The problem was that round steak, which was the typical cut Mom used for Swiss steak, is the wrong cut of meat to use. Round steak is lean, and has little collagen in it. While that works well for stir fry, it doesn’t work well for braising. The reason is that collagen, which makes a grilled or pan-fried steak tough, amazingly does the opposite for braised meat. That’s because as it cooks in the liquid, over a couple hours, it starts to break down into gelatin, giving the meat a moist, silky texture. Therefore, if you want the best cut of meat for braising, use a beef cut that has plenty of collagen in it; chuck steak or chuck roast. In this recipe, I use chuck roast, because it’s often much easier to find than thick cut chuck steaks. You just cut your own steaks from the roast, and the price is usually comparable to round steak. This recipe is delicious with mashed potatoes. 2-3, ...

Fuller State Park Memphis, TN 38109 (901) 785-3160 Hundreds of years before Europeans came to America, Indians flourished along the eastern shore of the Mississippi River. These ancient peoples hunted; made tools of bone, stone, and wood; were capable farmers; and lived in thatch-roofed homes. They built earthworks and worshipped the sun. Chucalissa is a working reconstruction of a 1,000-yearold Indian village that flourished here, with grass thatched huts, a temple, and a ceremonial burial ground. A museum at the site helps visitors understand its history. The name means “house abandoned” or “deserted town” and was chosen for the site by its rebuilders. The original peoples were encountered by DeSoto in 1541, but had deserted the town by 1673 when the French arrived. Today Choctaw Indians live on the site and demonstrate Indian crafts. The rebuilt village is operated by the University of Memphis. Thatch-roofed structure at Chucalissa Prehistoric Indian Village...

The Economic Imperative Today, nearly every good job requires some postsecondary education and/or training (e.g., an associate’s or bachelor’s degree, certificate, or apprenticeship or significant on-the-job training). All students need to be academically prepared to compete for good jobs in the global economy. In 1950, 60% of jobs were classified as unskilled, attainable by young people with high school diplomas or less. Today, less than 20% jobs are considered to be i unskilled. More education is associated with higher earnings and iii higher rates of employment in Rhode Island.

Over 10,000 thoroughbred foals are born each year. Most are raised with the intention of racing. Most will race but only a few will go on to win prestigious races with large sums of money. Only 20 will go on to run in the Kentucky Derby. Many don’t even earn enough in racing to pay for their board. There are three main reasons for retirement: injuries sustained that affect his/her performance; loss of the ‘competitive edge’; or intended use for breeding. At some point in their racing career, they will all be retired. Thoroughbreds can be misunderstood when caregivers take on an ex-racer without any knowledge of a horse’s life at the track. They are athletes that undergo extensive training at a young age that takes a toll on them physically and mentally. Thoroughbreds cannot be compared to a caregiver’s 14 year old Warmblood or Quarter Horse. Everything will be new to the ex-racer, and the living conditions at a boarding facility or private farm differ greatly from living conditions at the racetrack. Most leave racing by the age of 5. The thoroughbred will think and behave like a young horse, and must be given time to adjust to a new daily routine and life off the racetrack, which will require patience from the caregiver. It’s a fact of racing that if a Thoroughbred isn’t making money at the track, it is usually quickly sold or claimed in claiming races. Thoroughbreds usually have had several, even numerous owners and racetrack caregivers, and may not have experienced the affection and attention from the same person every day, as it receives at a boarding facility/private farm. Thoroughbreds quickly adjust to affection and attention and are anxious to return it to their new owner. Thoroughbreds at the racetrack are well fed and have a high metabolism. Most are healthy so they can race and compete. Some may come off the racetrack with some soreness in their legs. Some may need dental care. All need Ferrier care to pull racing shoes and evaluate hooves. Hooves usually need regular attention and trimming. The following information is derived from many articles from experts on off the track thoroughbred care and the years of horse care and OTTB care that we have experienced.
