Doing nothing is harder than I thought
9/3/2020 11:27:41 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   After being so long in a lockdown situation, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage planned a short vacation time for us. It took her quite a while to put all of the pieces together, but she succeeded as always. As I was preparing for this little adventure, my wife looked at me and said, "What are you putting in that bag?" I looked at her, smiled and said, “I’m putting some projects that I want to catch up on while we’re on vacation.” I then flashed another smile in her direction. “This is going to be...

Where do we go from here?
9/3/2020 11:27:09 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   In a sense we’ve come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was the promise that all men, yes, Black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the ‘unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.’ It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory...

Savvy Senior - How to Prevent Falls During a Pandemic
8/27/2020 11:42:29 AM

Dear Savvy Senior, My 80-year-old mother, who lives alone and is self-isolating during the coronavirus pandemic, has fallen several times. Are there any extra precautions you recommend that can help prevent this? Concerned Daughter   Dear Concerned, Falls are a common concern for many elderly adults and their families, especially during the coronavirus pandemic when many seniors are sheltering at home alone. Each year, more than 1-in-4 older Americans fall, making it the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries for those age 65 and older. But many...

So much work to do
8/27/2020 11:41:20 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment this week, I offer these words for all of us who are still fighting to protect the right to vote and for equality, justice, and the world our children and grandchildren deserve.   Mothers. Grandmothers. Women. We have so much work to do. So many mothers and infant lives to save. So many child dreams to realize and hopes to nourish and protect. Our countries and a common world to change and such long distances to...

California 'dream house,' decades in the making, is in ashes
8/27/2020 11:40:27 AM

By Adam Beam and Noah Berger   VACAVILLE, Calif. (AP)—When he closes his eyes at night, Hank Hanson hears sirens in his dreams—a byproduct of living nearly 30 years in the wildfire-prone wilderness of Northern California between San Francisco and Sacramento. But about 1 a.m. Wednesday, Hanson knew he wasn't dreaming when he looked to the hills above his home. The ridge line, where he and his wife in daylight tracked the sun's shifting seasonal paths, was lit up as if someone had strung lights across it and plugged it in. “It started...

Oh, for a life like my kitty
8/27/2020 11:26:32 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   The other night the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching the news on TV. All it showed was riots, looting, and chaos, which has become the normal. When will they ever get back to broadcasting good news? After a while, I heard a deep sigh on the other side of the room, and somebody say, "What's wrong with people?" Being a veteran husband, I knew that was not a question I was supposed to respond to with a very logical answer. I knew the person asking that question was not looking for any response from me. I kept from...

Savvy Senior - How Medicare and Other Tools Can Help Older Smokers Kick the Habit
8/20/2020 11:14:31 AM

Dear Savvy Senior, I understand that COVID-19 hits smokers a lot harder than nonsmokers but quitting at my age is very difficult. Does Medicare offer any coverage that helps beneficiaries quit smoking? Must Quit   Dear Must, It’s true. Smokers and vapers have a higher risk of severe COVID-19 infection as the coronavirus attacks the lungs. That’s why quitting now is more important than ever before. If you are a Medicare beneficiary, you’ll be happy to know that Medicare Part B covers up to eight face-to-face counseling sessions a year to help...

What it was, was a peach tree
8/20/2020 11:08:48 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   For some reason, this week, I had been thinking of my maternal grandfather. I was named after him, and therefore we had a connection. I was thinking about him because this month I turned the same age as he was when he passed. I hope there's no connection there. As a young boy, I would spend a month, every summer at my grandparents. They lived up in the mountains of Pennsylvania in a long valley. My grandfather was a farmer, and his primary income was his dairy cows. He taught me how to milk cows, and he did it the old-fashioned, hands-on...

8/13/2020 6:42:22 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend any services or technology that help me monitor my elderly mother who lives alone? Since the coronavirus pandemic started last March, my sister and I have noticed that my mom’s health has slipped a bit, so we would like to find something that helps us keep tabs on her when we’re not around. Concerned Daughter   Dear Concerned Depending on how closely you want to monitor your mother, and what she’s comfortable with as well, there are check-in call services along with some new monitoring technology devices you...
