Another bistro is opened
Monday of this week saw the opening of another "bistro" quick-service refreshment point at the steelworks. This catering facility in the Steel Plant 1 snack-bar

A world without stories = A tree without roots
A new book rich in interesting stories from yesteryear was recently officially introduced to the public in Kosice by the "Prave orechove" ("Real Thing") Literary
Society. Entitled "A world without stories = A tree without roots", it provides a unique insight into the way of thinking and the imagination of past generations and the life-stories of real
people who may not have created history themselves, but who were directly affected by the consequences of all the twists and turns of history. The book originated within the "Together for the
Region" grant program, which was set up jointly by the Carpathian Foundation and U. S. Steel Kosice. The authors listened to accounts of events told by the oldest inhabitants of the
villages in the surrounding area, and then remolded them into short stories. The illustrations are the work of USSK employee Jana Slosarova.
