Furry friends fill the empty nest well
6/4/2020 10:28:29 PM

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com   Oxnard-- I will be the first one to tell you that when your kids are grown, gone, and living their own lives, having pets is a great way to engage and keep the parent party going.   When you adopt an animal, the rules change about parenting, but the battle continues.  Granted, I don't have to storm upstairs anymore, and scream, do your homework or go to bed, but I still have moments with my furry friends.   For example, if you are sitting at your desk writing an editorial, the animals don't...

By Amanda Barrett   For many Americans, “space” means leaving the Earth's atmosphere and exploring the galaxy. They think of this weekend's SpaceX launch. Or going where no one has gone before on “Star Trek.” But the concept of space has a different meaning for African Americans. It's about finding places in American society—white society—where we are free to just be. Those spaces have been shrinking in recent months. With the flames lit in Minneapolis spreading to other cities after yet another black man's death, it felt...

Dear Savvy Senior, All this horrible coronavirus carnage got me thinking about my own end-of-life decisions if I were to get sick. Can you recommend some good resources that can help me create a living will or advance directive, or other pertinent documents? I’ve put it off long enough. Almost 70   Dear Almost, Creating a living will (also known as an advance directive) is one of those things most people plan to do, but rarely get around to actually doing. Only about one-third of Americans currently have one. But the cold hard reality of the novel coronavirus...

My thoughts are worth more than a penny
6/4/2020 9:24:33 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I must admit that I do gravel a lot in thinking about my thoughts. It has been a habit of mine down through the years. Thinking is what really makes life worth living, or so I believe. My father had a saying whenever he saw me staring off into the distance, “A penny for your thoughts, son.” Then he would smile, and I knew he really was not interested in what I was thinking he was just trying to set some kind of trap for me. Fortunately, I never fell into that trap, whatever it was. Of course, at the time I could’ve used an extra...

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com   Oxnard-- Sometimes, you have to think about editorials. When you're slightly off-center, like me, if you whip something up fast, it ends up with people kicking the wall and using profanity - no matter how true it may be.   I needed to clear my head. I took a walk to the candy store to buy some Twizzlers, so I could sit and chew on my next topic.   Then it struck me. This Friday is my 21st wedding anniversary, so I figured I would pass along some tips in these troubling times to make your marriage more...
