It was a week that was shot to pieces
7/2/2020 8:03:54 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I only made one mistake last week, which is something of a record for me. I try limiting mistakes to one at a time, but not always in sequential order. I once tried to make my mistakes in a logical order, but it turned out to be a mistake. The one faux pas I made was taking Monday off. I proposed to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage that we take Monday off late Sunday evening, suggesting a contest to see who could sleep in the longest. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage readily agreed to my plan. This should have been a tip-off for...

Fake doctor signed 600 patients' medical pot paperwork
6/25/2020 1:56:40 PM

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP)—About 600 patients seeking authorization to purchase medical marijuana in Missouri had their paperwork signed by a fake doctor, officials say. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services said in a news release that there is no evidence to indicate the affected patients were aware the physician listed was not the physician who met with them. “It was a person/people impersonating a doctor,” Department of Health and Senior Services spokesperson Lisa Cox told the Springfield News-Leader in a text message. She said the department could...

Families of California wildfire victims slam PG&E for crimes
6/25/2020 1:34:50 PM

By Michael Liedtke   The families of some of the 85 people killed by a horrific Northern California wildfire ignited by Pacific Gas & Electric's long-neglected equipment vilified the company Wednesday as greedy, corrupt and reckless, telling heartbreaking stories of their loss in court. The speakers tearfully told of holiday and birthday celebrations that will never be celebrated after their loved ones perished in the November 2018 fire that nearly wiped out Paradise, California. PG&E pleaded guilty Tuesday to 84 counts of involuntary manslaughter and one count...

6/19/2020 11:36:50 AM

Dear Savvy Senior, Are people with high blood pressure at increased risk of getting coronavirus? Hypertensive Helen   Dear Helen, If you have high blood pressure, you definitely need to take extra care to protect yourself during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Research shows that people with hypertension are more susceptible to getting COVID-19, are more likely to develop severe symptoms if they do get sick, and are more likely to die from the infection, especially if they’re older.   High Risk Links A weaker immune system is the key...

Connor Cooks: BBQ Baby Back Ribs
6/19/2020 11:35:26 AM

Memorial Day kicks off the unofficial start of summer.  Which means it is prime barbecuing season. And what says BBQ more than Baby Back Ribs? It is definitely my favorite meal from any smokehouse or BBQ purveyor. I always have to try the ribs. So, I take ribs seriously. Very seriously. And I want to share my recipe for the best ribs I have ever made. Note that these can be done entirely in the oven, but for this recipe a grill will come in handy. The key to fall off the bone ribs is cooking them slow and low. Let’s get into it!   Ingredients •...

There’s something about a lazy summer afternoon
6/19/2020 11:34:15 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   The past week was an unusually quiet week around the parsonage. It enabled me to do something that I have wanted to do all summer long. Nothing. I am not bragging or anything, but I can do nothing right up there with the best of them. The week, as all weeks do, started on Monday. For me, there is always something about a Monday morning. And this Monday morning was going to set the tone for the rest of the week. It all began when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage made one of her announcements. I live for these announcements because I know it...

We struggle together, we thrive together
6/19/2020 11:32:31 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   In the midst of this moment of national trauma I wanted to share a story of hope. When Jacquelyn Kendricks, program director at Roberts Family Development Center, heard her daughter say she had confronted a bully at school, Jacquelyn went into “natural mom mode.” “Listen, Taylor, that’s not your business,” Kendricks recalls saying. “As long as your friend is safe, you get an adult.” Her daughter, however, had different ideas. She looked at her mother and pushed...

Lynching: Vile, long-running U.S. history of lynching of people of color
6/19/2020 11:24:52 AM

By Russell Contreras   RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP)—The U.S. Congress is once again at an impasse over a widely backed bill to designate lynching as a federal hate crime. And as in previous attempts to pass anti-lynching legislation, the proposal is being blocked by a white southern representative this time, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky. Merriam-Webster defines lynching as “to put to death (as by hanging) by mob action without legal approval or permission.” Throughout American history, lynching has been used as a tool of terror against people of color to...

Harrowing blame game over COVID-19 toll in nursing homes
6/19/2020 11:16:55 AM

By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar   WASHINGTON (AP)—A grim blame game with partisan overtones is breaking out over COVID-19 deaths among nursing home residents, a tiny slice of the population that represents a shockingly high proportion of Americans who have perished in the pandemic. The Trump administration has been pointing to a segment of the industry—facilities with low federal ratings for infection control—and to some Democratic governors who required nursing homes to take recovering coronavirus patients. Homes that followed federal infection control...

6/11/2020 11:01:28 AM

Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good grocery and/or meal service delivery options for seniors? My 78-year-old mother has always shopped for herself, but since the coronavirus pandemic hit the grocery store shelves are always half empty, and she’s getting more fearful of leaving the house. Parent Helper   Dear Helper, There are numerous grocery and meal service delivery options available to help seniors stay safe at home during this pandemic, but what’s available to your mom will depend on her location and budget. You should also be aware that...
