9/24/2020 3:49:41 PM

OROVILLE, Calif. (AP)—A 72-year-old man found dead in a vehicle and two other people discovered on a roadway were among the latest victims of the deadliest wildfire in California this year. Fifteen people were killed last week in the North Complex fire burning about 125 miles (200 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco. One person remained missing, the Butte County sheriff's office said late Wednesday. DNA testing was used to positively identify 12 of the victims, Sheriff Kory Honea said. They included Jacob Albright, 72, of Feather Falls, whose body was found in a...

Nick Kotz: Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist with passion for Justice, much beloved friend
9/24/2020 3:48:56 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   I am deeply grateful for the extraordinary life and brilliant reporting of Nick Kotz who died in a tragic accident at the beautiful Virginia farm he and his wonderful wife Mary Lynn and son Jack shared so generously with so many friends. I met Nick in 1967 when he came to Mississippi to cover Senators Joseph Clark, Robert Kennedy, Jacob Javits, and George Murphy’s transforming visit to see first-hand the shocking levels of poverty, hunger, and nearly starving Black children and adults in the Mississippi...

Getting away with it is half the fun
9/24/2020 3:44:21 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—I must admit I don't get away with very much, and I never have. It's not that I never try. It's just that whenever I try to get away with something, it always backfires. I wish there were a class somewhere entitled, "How You Can Get Away with Anything." I certainly would sign up. But I haven't found it yet. Every time I do something behind the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage's back, she always turns around. I don't know if she has eyes in the back of her head or if it's just women's...

Savvy Senior - Should I buy long-term care insurance?
9/18/2020 9:31:04 AM

Dear Savvy Senior, My wife and I have thought about purchasing a long-term care insurance policy, but we hate the idea of paying expensive monthly premiums for a policy we may never use. Is there a good rule of thumb on who should or shouldn’t buy long-term care insurance? Getting Old   Dear Getting, There are two key factors you need to consider that can help you determine if purchasing a long-term care (LTC) insurance policy is a smart decision for you and your wife. One factor is your financial situation and second is your health history. Currently, around...

A remembrance My beloved friend and Civil Rights titan John Lewis
9/18/2020 9:11:12 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   During Easter weekend in 1960 I took my first airplane ride, from Atlanta, Georgia (where I was a senior at Spelman College) to Raleigh, North Carolina, on a plane chartered by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) at great SCLC organizer Ella Baker’s behest. She was a brilliant, strategic, tough, and compassionate mentor. She invited student leaders from the sit-in protests happening at largely Black colleges across the South to travel to Shaw University to share experiences and see how we could...

Pop Up Yoga raises money for the NorCal Fires
9/10/2020 12:52:12 PM

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com     Ventura-- It was a beautiful day at Marina Park on Labor Day, but one group, Pop Up Yoga, went the extra mile and held a benefit for victims of the NorCal fires.   The group found its peace, showed off some pretty slick moves, and spent a couple of hours making their world a better place.    The group got involved with helping the Thomas Fire victims, and when the Norcal Fires started causing havoc, they knew they had to do.   "Two and a half years ago, we did the Thomas...

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...
