Those used to be the days

Dr. James L. Snyder   Being limited as to travel and outside activities can sometimes get rather boring. You can be inactive only so long, and then you get in that car that drives you to crazy land. Finding something to do to keep me from being bored has become somewhat of a challenge. However, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage can always find something to do, especially something for me. That is why every day I "act" as if I am busy. I think I ought to get some Emmy award for that because I am a rather good actor. I have had a lot of practice. Not only...

6/11/2020 11:01:39 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 because...

Comforting the dying and their families—from a distance
6/11/2020 10:59:41 AM

By Lane DeGregory   TAMPA, Fla. (AP)—She gets to work early these days, now that there's so much more need. When she turns into the empty parking lot at the hospice care center, the sun is just starting to brighten the sky. She pulls on her mask and heads into the one-story brick building where a nurse takes her temperature. The long halls are empty. Normally, patients' families would be napping on the sofas in the Hearth Room, praying in the chapel, sitting beside relatives' beds. But for the last two months, the common rooms have been closed, the chapel...

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP)—The trial for a woman accused of dressing as a clown and fatally shooting her lover's wife in Florida in 1990 has been pushed back again, this time because of court disruptions created by the coronavirus pandemic. Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Joseph Marx on Thursday scheduled the first-degree murder trial of Sheila Keen-Warren, 56, to begin April 9, 2021, according to court records. The trial had previously been set for January and then moved to May. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Keen-Warren was arrested in 2017 and extradited from...

Hope through the suffering

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   “Another life taken. Another public lynching. Another news story. Another act of recorded Black death . . . [This death] is not an anomaly, but a historical pattern of behavior that binds every American to an unexamined history of our nation.”   These lines are from the opening scenes of the “sermonic film” Rev. Otis Moss III, senior pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, released on May 17: The Cross and the Lynching Tree: A Requiem for Ahmaud Arbery. The 22-minute film...

COVID-19 puts National WWII Museum 20th anniversary online
6/11/2020 10:54:45 AM

By Janet McConnaughey   NEW ORLEANS (AP)—Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the National WWII Museum in New Orleans was planning on a 20th anniversary crowd of thousands. Now it's working to avoid crowds by selling a limited number of scheduled tickets and holding all anniversary commemorations—including an annual D-Day morning ceremony—online. The museum opened June 6, 2000, as the National D-Day Museum and was designated the national World War II museum a few years later. Last June 6, the landing's 75th anniversary, it logged 3,200 visitors. With...

Will there be television in heaven?
6/11/2020 10:40:34 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   If anybody can ask hard questions, the award has to go to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She knows how to ask a question and, more importantly, when to ask a particular question. Throughout our marriage, she has become an expert in the area of questionology. There is not a question I can think of that she hasn’t asked. On the other side of the parsonage, my expertise has been in not correctly answering questions. It is not that I cannot answer a question; I do not answer in a way that fits her expectations. That is important when it comes...

Reflection-One Black Journalist
6/4/2020 9:46:46 PM

By Amanda Barrett   For many Americans, “space” means leaving the Earth's atmosphere and exploring the galaxy. They think of this weekend's SpaceX launch. Or going where no one has gone before on “Star Trek.” But the concept of space has a different meaning for African Americans. It's about finding places in American society—white society—where we are free to just be. Those spaces have been shrinking in recent months. With the flames lit in Minneapolis spreading to other cities after yet another black man's death, it felt like...

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 11:15:06 AM

Dear Savvy Senior, Because of the coronavirus pandemic, I just got laid off from my job of 22 years and need to find health insurance until I can get another job or enroll in Medicare at age 65. What are my options? Scared to Death         Dear Scared, I’m very sorry about your job loss. It’s estimated that as many as 45 million Americans could lose their health insurance as businesses continue to lay off workers due to repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic. Here’s where you can find health insurance coverage while...
