Carroll Hospital Auxiliary Celebrates 60 Years

The Carroll Hospital Auxiliary is celebrating 60 years of service this month! Ever wonder how the Auxiliary got started? The hospital’s 50th anniversary book, published in 2011, provides a bit of insight:

In the summer of 1958, fresh off the successful campaign to raise money for the county’s first hospital, Gladys M. Wimert sat behind the wheel of her little yellow Opel, going from Hanover to Westminster, when she had an idea.

Crispy Fish with Lemon-Dill Sauce

Who doesn’t love a good fish fry? Unfortunately, the grease and fat takes away from the health benefits of eating fish. This breaded fish recipe is a great substitution for deep fried fish and will leave you satisfied without all the extra fat and calories! It can be cooked under the broiler, or you can coat the baking sheet with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and bake at 400 degrees until done. This recipe works well with any flaky fish. You can also add a splash of cayenne powder or Old Bay for a little kick!

Spanish-style Cod in Tomato Broth

When making stew we typically don’t think of using fish as the protein, but this Spanish-style fish dish served over brown rice is worth a try. Don’t be intimidated by the number of ingredients—most of them you probably already have in your kitchen, and the fresh herbs and spices are all in the produce department at your local grocery store. It is a delicious, easy, one-pot fish meal!

Medical Misconception: Shaving

Each month we set the facts straight regarding a popular health and wellness myth.

This month’s myth: Shaving makes hair grow back faster and thicker.

Many of us have heard that shaving causes our hair to grow back more quickly, and the hair that returns is darker and thicker than before. But no matter how much anecdotal evidence we have, this ongoing belief is just a myth.
