75 years later, Japanese man recalls bitter internment in U.S.
9/9/2020 6:43:29 PM

By Emily Wang TOKYO (AP)—When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941, the first thing Hidekazu Tamura, a Japanese American living in California, thought was, “I'll be killed at the hands of my fellow Americans.” It wouldn't be the last time he felt that way. At 99, amid commemorations of Wednesday's 75th anniversary of the formal Sept. 2, 1945, surrender ceremony that ended World War II, Tamura has vivid memories of his time locked up with thousands of other Japanese Americans in U.S. internment camps. Torn between two warring nationalities, the...

If only my fishing rod could talk
9/9/2020 1:41:02 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   It has been a busy week, more so than any other week. Just when I thought I was caught up, something else presented itself without my permission. That seems to be what life is all about. I remember my father telling me when I complained to him how busy my life was and how my employer wanted me to do a lot of work, "Son, that's life. To be sure, he was right. My father has been right many times, and if only I would have listened to him, I would not have experienced some of the problems that I did. Just don’t let him know I said...

Unfiltered thoughts running through my head
9/3/2020 10:00:12 PM

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com     Oxnard-- Without a clear mindset this week, I thought that maybe I'd clean out the attic and put those thoughts to paper.   First things first, do you know what rules about getting old, (I'm 61) is that I am too old to worry about what people think about me. I remain the square peg trying to fit in a round hole.   I used to have a lot of muscles and could move things anywhere. My father used to call me Magilla, among other things I won't discuss, and now, well, moving anything...

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...
