Retire right — plan to do it twiceBy LIZ WESTON

There’s the retirement that looks like the commercials: biking, travel, enjoying the family.

And then there’s the one where you can’t get up the stairs anymore.

Getting at the heart of health careBY DENISE LOCKWOOD

With heart disease-related deaths the leading cause of death in Kenosha County, primary care physicians now have a direct connection to industry leaders in how to treat and prevent heart disease right in their backyard.

Two cardiologists from the Kenosha Medical Group-Zenith Health Care — Dr. Raaid Museitif and Dr. Indrajit Choudhuri — started the Great Lakes Cardiology Symposium in 2016 with the intention of focusing on innovation and technology for cardiovascular care and wellness. Held at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center in Pleasant Prairie on Saturday, 270 primary care physicians, cardiologists, surgeons, lab technicians and nurse practice attended the conference.

Praise the braise: Tender lamb topped with crisp greensBy KATIE WORKMAN

This is a good, old-fashioned showstopper of an entree, the kind of dish where you should not pretend to be bashful — “What, this old thing? I just threw it together from stuff in the fridge” — but rather take your accolades with modesty and grace.

I have been playing around with slow/low braises, with a quick blast of high heat at the end to form a crust. I am also a sucker for almost any kind of protein (from a sliced roast to a filet of fish) finished with a pile of herby greens. The contrast of warm and cool, rich and fresh, tender and crisp — it gets me every time, and I hope you’ll agree. If you want a deeper flavor, rub the lamb with the marinade, loosely tent with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Bring the lamb to room temperature before cooking.

Wooden windows worth fixingKenosha News Staff and Lakeshore News Service

Owners of historic homes often believe that replacement is the only option for their wooden windows. Yet a restored window is more efficient than a replacement window and can be restored for less money, according to Wood Window Makeover founder Steve Quillian.

To teach local residents about the process of restoring wooden windows, he is holding a one-day workshop Saturday, April 8, at the Kemper Center. The workshop, which costs $70, is sponsored by Abatron, a Kenosha-based manufacturer of products used in historic preservation. Anyone interested needs to register.

Ministry is in his DNA BY KAREN MAHONEY

The Rev. Peter Prange has a family heritage of ministry.

He grew up in a parsonage in Janesville, where his father was a Lutheran pastor. Both his grandfathers and great-grandfathers were also Lutheran pastors. And even though his father didn’t pressure him to follow in his father’s or grandfather’s footsteps, Prange ended up pursuing a career in ministry.

Picture book on Basquiat wins CaldecottBy Lisa Rivers

The 2017 winner of the Randolph Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished American picture book for children was “Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.” Written and illustrated by Javaka Steptoe, this book is Javaka’s tribute to Basquiat’s artwork.

As a young man Javaka connected to Basquiat’s art. His life story inspired him to share Basquiat’s creative and complicated life. At the age of 7, Basquiat was badly injured when hit by a car, and his mother suffered from mental illness. Despite all his struggles, and death at the age of 28, his bold and expressive artwork about black culture, social issues and life in New York City eventually brought him great success in the art world.
