And then it was silent no more
5/27/2020 11:16:25 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   During this time of exclusive lockdown, I and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage have grown accustomed to silence. Don’t get me wrong here. I do not object to noise as long as it’s the right kind of noise. However, I do have a good warm feeling about silence. What was that song? "The Sounds of Silence." Silence is wonderful and soothing, enabling me to sit back and enjoy a good read. There is nothing like reading a book, and from my point of view, I have not read a book unless I have read it ten times. If it is a good book, the...

5/27/2020 11:11:07 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   Every day my very beautiful, brilliant, and much beloved mixed-race African friend, Maria Nhambu—who was placed in a Tanzanian orphanage in her first week of life—feeds my spirit. She is a daily trove of shared wisdom and loving support. She recently shared a poem by Heather Plett, which profoundly spoke to me during this pandemic and turbulent political time. I hope it will move you too.   Today I will greet Grief When it comes: I will meet it at the door, I will say “Come in, old...

New-look Santa Anita cashes winning ticket as racing returns
5/27/2020 11:04:10 AM

By Beth Harris   ARCADIA, Calif. (AP)—Horses are thundering down the stretch again at Santa Anita. There are no fans or owners cheering them on. No photos in the winner’s circle. No bets placed at the track’s windows. Still, it’s a win for the sport to be back racing against the backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains after being idled for 1 1/2 months because of the coronavirus pandemic. “We were going to be willing to do whatever it took to get it open,” said Bob Baffert, the two-time Triple Crown-winning trainer. From March 12-27, the...

What older diabetics Should Know About Coronavirus
5/15/2020 12:32:25 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, My husband and I are both in our late sixties and have diabetes. We would like to find out if our diabetes increases our risk of getting the coronavirus. Concerned Diabetics   Dear Concerned, Currently, there’s not enough data to show that people with diabetes are more likely to get coronavirus (COVID-19) than the general population. But the problem for diabetics is, if you do happen to contract the virus, your chance of developing serious complications are much higher. This is especially true if your diabetes isn’t well-controlled....

Californians buy mom flowers as virus restrictions ease
5/15/2020 12:29:26 PM

LOS ANGELES (AP)—As California takes baby steps toward reopening public spaces, families who'd been cooped up for nearly two months spent Mother's Day in parks and on trails with reminders to keep up social distancing practices. Moms in cars were lauded at a weekend drive-through parade where people waved signs and blew horns outside Saddleback Church in Orange County. In Bakersfield, residents of the Kern River Transitional Care nursing home lined up on a sidewalk as family members drove by to wish their loved ones a happy Mother's Day. Gov. Gavin Newsom last week...

When everything fails, it’s over
5/15/2020 12:28:29 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   During this time of seclusion, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly has spent some significant time binge-watching some of those Hallmark mystery movies. After a while, they all look alike, but my wife loves them, therefore, so do I. The other night as we were watching, one of the characters was a very old, grouchy, mean-looking woman who had nothing nice to say about anybody. I usually groan whenever I saw her. In the middle of the movie, my wife looked at me and said, “Does that woman remind you of anybody?” Whenever my...

Sowing seeds of life and hope
5/15/2020 12:17:20 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   Parenting is a call and a blessing that can be a challenge under any circumstances. This has been a season like no other, but this Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate all mothers (and fathers, teachers, and caregivers) who sow seeds of life and hope for the future and pray that they will be able to keep moving through their own uncertainties and challenges while loving and sustaining the children in their care. As parents our instinct is to protect even when we know we cannot. I worry about my children and grandchildren every day as they go about...

Focus on nursing home workers amid continued virus outbreaks
5/13/2020 9:07:46 PM

By Amy Taxin   For nearly two months, many nursing homes nationwide have been on virtual lockdown. Families of residents are not allowed inside, vendors have to drop deliveries outside and the only people coming in and out are health care workers and assistants. Despite all that, the outbreaks continue—possibly spread by the same nursing home workers who are risking their lives to tend to some of society's most vulnerable. In response, many workers are significantly increasing their own vigilance, nursing homes are adding safety measures, and the testing of...
