The next chapter
2/3/2021 12:56:59 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   “This is a time of testing. We face an attack on democracy and on truth. A raging virus. Growing inequity. The sting of systemic racism. A climate in crisis. America’s role in the world. Any one of these would be enough to challenge us in profound ways. But the fact is we face them all at once, presenting this nation with the gravest of responsibilities. Now we must step up. All of us. It is a time for boldness, for there is so much to do. And, this is certain: We will be judged, you and I, for how we...

Oh, the daze of my life
2/3/2021 12:55:48 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   When I was young, my mother was quite a fan of a soap opera called “The Days of Our Lives.” I remember the title but I never would watch something like that. However, my mother enjoyed it and so what’s there to complain about. As I was thinking of it, I felt that I should remember the days of my life. But, instead of "days," I need to put in the word "daze," which more clearly represents my life. At times, I wish I was 16 again because I was the smartest person in the world. I knew everything; all you had...

New York data show nursing home deaths undercounted by thousands
2/3/2021 12:15:23 PM

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP)—New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration confirmed Thursday that thousands more nursing home residents died of COVID-19 than the state's official tallies had previously acknowledged, dealing a potential blow to his image as a pandemic hero. The surprise development, after months of the state refusing to divulge its true numbers, showed that at least 12,743 long-term care residents died of the virus as of Jan. 19, far greater than the official tally of 8,505 on that day, cementing New York's toll as one of the highest in the nation. Those...

Coffee without coffee just ain’t coffee
1/27/2021 4:02:36 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder I must soberly confess that I have throughout my life given in to habits and rituals. I don't like saying that, but it is the truth. At this point, I don't know the difference between a habit and a ritual. One ritual I have is when I get up in the morning, the first thing I do is have a nice hot cup of coffee. This is what really gets me going in the morning. You do not want to meet me before I have my morning cup of Joe. There was a time I changed my habit and had hot tea in the morning. I thought that might be a different change in my life....

Savvy Senior - How much do you have to make to file income taxes?
1/27/2021 3:51:08 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, What are the IRS income tax filing requirements for retirees in 2020? My income dropped way down when I was forced into retirement last March due to COVID, so I’m wondering if I need to file a tax return this year. —Unexpected Retiree   Dear Unexpected, Whether or not you are required to file a federal income tax return this year actually depends on several factors: How much you earned last year (in 2020), the source of that income, your age and your filing status. Here’s a rundown of this tax season’s IRS tax filing...

Savvy Senior - Deciding what to do in retirement
1/20/2021 11:38:52 AM

Dear Savvy Senior: I just turned 62 and am financially prepared for retirement, but I’m less certain about how to spend my time after leaving work. Can you recommend some resources or tools that can help me with this? --Feeling Lost   Dear Lost: This is a great question! Many people, when asked what they want to do when they retire, will say they want a mix of travel, play and meaningful work. Specifics, however, tend to be few and far between. But planning how to fill your time in retirement is just as important as the financial planning aspect. Here are some...

Stay Awake!
1/20/2021 11:35:19 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   As Americans everywhere remain on guard against continued chaos and violence leading up to Inauguration Day, it’s instructive to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday even in turbulent times by returning to Dr. King’s own words. His last Sunday sermon, delivered at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on March 31, 1968, was called “Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution.” Dr. King said the title was based on the old story of Rip Van Winkle, who fell asleep for...

Riding the Hallelujah Train to the end
1/20/2021 11:33:21 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   We had a long, hard week with problems and difficulties that took time to solve if they even were solved. It is quite interesting to me that when I solve one problem, two other problems appear. I think they’re all waiting in line. In particular, one day was rather difficult and zapped both of us of energy. I ordered a new desk for my office, and there were so many problems getting it delivered that I almost gave up. Along the way the desk was damaged and they returned it back to the store without even telling us. We had to reorder it all over...

Well, here we go again
1/13/2021 6:43:42 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—I have lived long enough to know that the only change that has any kind of reality is the change in my pocket. I keep track of that change with great supervision and count it every day. When people tell me that this is a New Year and there will be a lot of changes this year, I search my pocket because that's the only change I want to know about. Looking back over my life, the most significant change that ever came to me was the day I said “I do” to the future Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. At the time, and...
