Bremen’s Berndt is new deputy prosecutor

February 29, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Lynn Berndt, of Bremen, was appointed new deputy prosecutor for Marshall County in February.

Everyone loves a good paczki

February 29, 2012

BREMEN — Everyone loves to indulge once in awhile and what better excuse than Fat Tuesday to enjoy a paczki … or two.
The donut-like pastry is said to have originated in Poland in the 1600s when the ladies of the houses felt the need to use up all the lard and other taboo ingredients they had to give up for their beliefs so they didn’t go bad. Fat Tuesday (also Mardi Gras to the French or in Brazil, Carnival), the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, is marked as the Catholics’ last big, bad-eating indulgence day before the fasting period of Lent.
