Pursuing a Cure For Pancreatic Cancer at the PurpleStride Walk

Purple will be the color of the day on Sept. 21, when hundreds of walkers, runners, supporters and cancer survivors gather at the Regional Sports Center at University Center Rochester. It’s not a fashion statement; it’s a rallying color against pancreatic cancer.

Tens of thousands of lives each year are devastated by cancer of the pancreas: 73 percent of patients die within a year of diagnosis and only about 6 percent survive for five years.

Hearty, flavor-packed chili can be an all-season pleasure and just the right dish on many occasions. No two chilies—or chili powders—have the same flavor profile. The three dishes that follow are distinctly different, as reflected in the wine and beer pairing suggestions, yet each is comforting, easy to prepare and simply satisfying.

With crisp fall days leading us to winter, it’s the perfect time to try all three. Perhaps one of these unique chilies will become a favorite in your household.

The decision to embark on a top-to-bottom home remodel isn’t made overnight. For Charlie and Pam Bollig, it was a dream they discussed for nearly 20 years.

Their 1970s four-bedroom colonial—quietly situated on almost three acres of land they love—no longer met their needs. “Our two children are grown. We have grandkids, and when they came to visit, along with their puppies, the house was just too small,” Pam explains. “So we made the decision to invest in our house and make it beautiful, up-to-date, more modern and to stay here in our retirement. This is home for us.”
