12/3/2020 3:53:33 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, Writing a will has never been a high priority to me but this lingering coronavirus crisis has changed my thinking. Can you recommend some good do-it-yourself resources to help me write a simple will? Getting Older   Dear Getting, The coronavirus crisis has changed the way a lot of people look at things, including wills. Currently, fewer than half of American adults have prepared a will. But having a last will and testament is important because it ensures that your money and property will be distributed to the people you want to receive it after your...

12/3/2020 3:51:01 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—The one thing I don't like is when somebody deliberately lies to me. Trust me; this has happened quite a few times in my life. Sometimes, by accident, they say something that isn't true; they just got their facts mixed up. Other times, it’s a ploy to deceive me and get something from me. As I often say, if you can’t con me you can’t con anyone. I must say I have become very suspicious when somebody I don’t know promises me something “free.” If you follow through with these...

12/3/2020 3:43:36 PM

By Greg Beacham   LOS ANGELES (AP)—Mike Tyson stepped through the ropes in his signature black trunks and heard the opening bell in a boxing ring for the first time in 15 years. The former heavyweight champion of the world traded lively punches with Roy Jones Jr. for eight entertaining rounds that ended with two middle-aged legends wearily hugging each other in mutual admiration. Their fight was only an exhibition, and it ended in a draw. But for Tyson, the experience evoked the joy and excitement he felt so long ago at the start of his boxing career—and it was...
