and wellness to customers from miles around.

barrels of love and generosity

ric Long knows what it feels like to be hungry.
The eldest of five children, he recalls the strug-
gles of growing up in Lincoln in a single-par-
ent home, relying on the generosity of food shelters.
For us to have anything normal like Christmas gifts
or a Thanksgiving dinner, we depended on organiza-
tions such as the Salt Mine, Eric said.
The Salt Mine is a nonprofit located in the heart
of Lincoln that offers food, clothing and church
services to the community.
Today, Eric is the pastor and president of the Salt
The Salt Mine was formed when Glen and Linda
Vance moved from Oklahoma City to Lincoln in
1985. Eric was attending Lincoln High School
when the Vances hosted an event at the school and
shared about Gods love for the world especially
those who are hungry and poor.
My life was transformed, Eric said. I con-
tinuously feel the call to make other peoples lives
better. Eric married the Vances daughter, Robin,
and together they have three sons and one daughter,
all of whom are involved in the ministries of the Salt
Our agenda is to keep people from going with-
out, Eric said. One of the primary ways we do that
is by giving people food, then they can pay their util-
ities; pay their rent. Its keeping them in their homes;
keeping their bills paid. I know it seems like a small
thing, just giving them food, but it keeps people
from going without in other areas of their life.

Collins said time management is the most time-consuming part of the job.

Its not difficult, Collins said. Everyone here is very professional, consistent, the character of
(Working work, love of the job. Everyone puts forth 100 percent, which makes it very easy.
We start prepping for the weekend buffet on Wednesday, Collins added. We look at what weve

have to respect They regularly look at buffets in Reno and Las Vegas as well as the surrounding region. The menu
for the nightly buffet changes every two months. At the time of writing, the theme is East meets
the momentum.
South and the next theme will be Mediterranean.
We want to get further out of the box, Collins said. We try to meet and anticipate everyones
wants and needs.
An upcoming example of going outside the box will be featured in the new spring menu, which
will feature Mediterranean flavors.
We will feature a North African sweet-potato pork shank and a harissa-rubbed brisket, Collins
Sous chef Kyle Sloan explained that harissa is a Middle-Eastern red paste.
Its tomato-based, with cumin, garlic, coriander and a little bit of lemon juice or vinegar to pene-
trate the meat, Sloan said. He added that working the buffet is like driving a Cadillac you have
to respect the momentum.
On the buffet line, Collins said, the staff is constantly replacing pans, which serve about five to
eight people each.
We keep the pans small for consistency, Collins said. The cooks up here have to finish frying or
sauting the food being served fresh off the line.
As Collins continued to the Tuscan Trattoria, a cook could be seen bringing fresh pizzas out of
the oven while another cook prepared shrimp scampi in front of one of the buffets guests.

Room chef Seamus Collins, who oversees the Thunder Valley Casino and Resort buffet, said the Sweet Dreams dessert station has recently switched to a
petit four display. A petit four is a small, bite-sized confection

a barbecue menu right after the close of the buffet.

scale, the oven temperature has to be perfect and you have to use good ingredients.
Collins, who has a peanut allergy, said he is very conscious of guests who have
dietary restrictions.
Its important these days, Collins said. People want to be healthy.
Speaking of healthy, one of the buffets features, and all of the restaurants at Thunder Valley, is a system installed in 2016
that oxidizes cigarette smoke and pollutants in the air and neutralizes them. The air-cleaning system, installed by Casino-Air,
functions 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
Collins said he doesnt think of his job as work.
I tell new employees, Treat this as a school and come to learn because you will learn something every day, Collins said.
Its a friendly environment and I love being here. Its like a big family.
