“A father may turn his back on his child, brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies, husbands may desert their wives, wives their husbands. But a mother’s love endures through all.” — Washington Irving

I portrayed the sidekick of Guy Madison’s character in movies and on TV. I also appeared numerous times on Jack Benny’s radio show between 1936 and 1942. I was known as a character actor and comedic cowboy sidekick.

Q&A

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Q: I’m trying to figure out the best time to retire based on my future earnings. How can I calculate my own retirement benefit estimate? A: We suggest you use our Retirement Estimator at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. Our Retirement Estimator produces estimates based on your actual Social Security earnings record, so it’s a personalized, instant picture of your future estimated benefit. Also, you can use it to test different retirement scenarios based on what age you decide to start benefits. For example, you can find out your estimated monthly payments if you retire at age 62, 70, or any age in between. ——— Q: I’ve been working for about 10 years and haven’t given much thought to the Social Security taxes I’ve been paying. How do I earn Social Security credits? A: A “Social Security credit� (sometimes referred to as a “quarter of coverage�) is the basic unit for determining whether a worker is insured under the Social Security program. The amount needed for a credit increases automatically each year as average wages increase. For 2013, workers receive one cred-

it for each $1,160 of earnings. A worker can receive a maximum of four credits for any year. Generally, you need 40 credits to be eligible for retirement benefits. Learn more at www.socialsecurity.gov/ OACT/COLA/QC.html. ——— Q: I worked for the last 10 years and I now have my 40 credits. Does this mean that I get the maximum Social Security retirement benefit? A: Probably not. The 40 credits are the minimum number you need to qualify for retirement benefits. However, we do not base your benefit amount on those credits; it’s based on your earnings over a lifetime of work. To learn more about how you earn Social Security credits and how they work, read or listen to our publication How You Earn Credits, available at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs. ——— Q: I’m applying online for disability benefits. What is the difference between the disability application and the disability report? Do I have to complete both? A: Yes, you will need to complete both when you apply for disability benefits. To receive Social Security disability benefits, you must file a disability application. A disability report provides information about your current physical or mental condition and we need this to process your disability application. You should complete a disability application, a disability report and an authorization to release medical records to file a claim for disability benefits. To learn more and to apply online, visit www.social security.gov/applyfordisability. ——— Q: How do I know if I have worked long enough to qualify for Social Security disability benefits? A: You must have worked long enough — and recently enough — under Social Security to qualify for disability benefits. Social Security work credits are based on your total yearly wages or self-employment income. You can earn up to four credits each year. The amount needed for a credit changes from year to year. In 2013, for example, you earn one credit for each $1,160 of wages or self-employment income. When you have earned

$4,640, you’ve earned your four credits for the year. The number of work credits you need to qualify for disability benefits depends on your age when you become disabled. Generally, you need 40 credits, 20 of which you earned in the last 10 years, ending with the year you become disabled. However, younger workers may qualify with fewer credits. To learn more, see our Disability Planner at www. socialsecurity.gov/dibplan/dqualify3.htm. ——— Q: I pay my monthly premium directly to my Medicare prescription drug plan provider. Why can’t I also pay my income-related monthly adjustment amount directly to my Medicare prescription drug plan provider? A: By law, we must deduct your income-related monthly adjustment amount from your Social Security payments. If the amount you owe is more than the amount of your payment, or you don’t get monthly payments, you will get a separate bill from another federal agency, such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services or the Railroad Retirement Board. Read our publication, Medicare Premiums: Rules for Higher-Income Beneficiaries, for an idea of what you can expect to pay. You’ll find it at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs. ——— Q: I am applying for Extra Help with prescription drug costs. Can state agencies help with my Medicare costs? A: Yes. When you file your application for Extra Help with Medicare prescription drug costs, you also can start your application process for the Medicare Savings Programs — state programs that provide help with other Medicare costs. When you apply for Extra Help, Social Security will send information to your state, unless you tell us not to on the application. Your state will contact you to help you apply for a Medicare Savings Program. Learn more about how Social Security can provide Extra Help with your Medicare prescription drug costs by visiting www. socialsecurity.gov/prescriptionhelp.

Free lunch for seniors

Free Medicare event planned

MOSCOW — Friendly Neighbors Senior Citizens Inc. will give a free lunch to anyone age 60 and older. The event will begin with service of soup at 10:30 a.m. Oct. 31 in the Great Room of the 1912 Center located at 412 E. Third St. in Moscow. Salad and dessert bars will be available at 11 a.m. and the main meal will begin being served at 11:30 a.m. The center also offers home delivery of meals to Moscow-area seniors through the Area Agency on Aging. More information about the free meal, meal delivery or other offerings of the senior center is available by calling (208) 882-1562.

The event is open to Washington and Idaho residents currently enrolled in Medicare as well as those who will become eligible in 2014. The event will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday at Tri-State Memorial Hospital in rooms A and B at Clarkston. John Espinoza from Washington state Office of the Insurance Commissioner will be at the event to explain Medicare options and help answer questions about the open-enrollment period. “Many people are confused by ‘ACA’ or ‘Obamacare’ and we want them to know their coverage will not change. The Affordable Care Act or ‘Obamacare’ is for those age 64 and under,” Espinoza said. The goal is to answer questions and espouse any misconceptions about Medicare changing. Espinoza and volunteers will also help those who will be eligible for Medicare in 2014 understand the open enrollment, which begins on Oct. 15 and ends Dec. 7.

AARP Driver Safety class offered MOSCOW — A six-hour class will be offered here over two days. The class will be held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. next Monday and Oct. 15 at Gritman Medical Center. To reserve a spot in this class call Dick Bull at (208) 882-2420. The cost for each class is $12 for AARP members and $14 for nonmembers. The classes are designed for those age 50 and older but are open to all ages and may result in a point reduction on drivers licenses and/or insurance discounts.

A journey to true love, crossroads included The adventures, and misadventures, of one woman’s life

The walls of Estelle Banks’ apartment at Emeritus at Juniper Meadows in Lewiston are a black and white montage to her modeling days in California and New York.

S

By Mary Stone

Lewiston Tribune

he’s given most of them away, but a few black and white photographs of Estelle Banks as a young woman grace the walls of her apartment at Emeritus at Juniper Meadows in the Lewiston Orchards. “This is sort of my favorite because I’m smiling,” she said, gazing at an image of herself in her 20s. “I don’t like it because I’m holding a cigarette, but that’s the way it was. We all smoked, drank, raised hell ... .” Her life is tamer now, at age 89, but it’s not hard to believe Banks raised some hell. Her sculpted features and perfect brunette bob give her a youthful air — which she attributes to forgoing sugar-filled soda pop — and hint at the extraordinary life such beauty made possible. Carol Broemeling, owner of Chic Impressions in the Lewiston Orchards, has used some of Banks’ old photos to decorate her salon. Broemeling first knew Banks as a client but the two soon became friends. Now Broemeling, 46, styles Banks’ hair every Friday before the two of them go out for lunch and shopping. A volunteer for Interlink-Faith In Action, a Clarkston-based nonprofit organization, which offers transportation for elderly and disabled residents of the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley, takes Banks to her appointment each week; Broemeling takes her home. “We go shopping, we go to lunch, we just visit. She looks forward to Fridays and so do I,” Broemeling said. “I just mark out my whole day. I don’t take any appointments after hers.” Among Banks’ favorite photos is a shot of them out having a glass of wine together. “That is one of our favorite things to do; just dress to the nines and go out to dinner,” Broemeling said. “I do adore her.” She said she learns something new about her friend every time they get together. “We have great conversations about all sorts of different things,” Broemeling said. “It’s just amazing to listen to her stories.” Long before “Dancing with the Stars,” for example, Banks competed in — and won — dance contests. It’s been a while since she’s taken a spin on a dance floor, but with her trim figure and perfect posture, Banks looks like she could still compete. “I’d love to go dancing again, I really would,” she said. As it is, she satisfies herself with watching “DWTS,” which she loves. “I’m kinaesthetic and when I see them dancing up there I’m right with them. I can feel it as plain as day,” she said. Banks’ story starts with a childhood that involved so much moving around she often didn’t attend school. Her stepfather was a coal mine inspector


M O N D A Y, O C T O B E R 7, 2 0 1 3 whose job took him throughout the South, including Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma. She left home at 16 and hitchhiked from Arkansas to Long Beach, Calif., where she baby-sat for her brother and his wife. “Everybody told me, You should be a model,” she said. “But I was shy, not outgoing. It took me a long time to make up my mind to go to modeling school.” In the interim she worked as a waitress, often staying with friends. “When I got old enough to get my work card, I worked in some honky tonks,” she said. “In those days, it was kind of bad but I had to make myself a living, because I was on my own.” It was there, she said, she learned to dance. About a year later, she returned to Louisiana, where a friend set her up with a man she thought would be a good match. It was love at first sight. “We went out that night and got married the same night,” Banks said. She was not quite 17 years old. “He was handsome, he was tall, he was everything you would think of,” she said. He was also, it turned out, “an inveterate gambler.” Within two years she knew the marriage could not last. By then, the United States had entered World War II. Propelled by patriotism and the desire to belong to something after her failed marriage, Banks decided to join the military. “I was very patriotic, loved my country, worried about the fact we were going to speak Japanese or German,” she said. She and some friends were set to join the U.S. Army, but the “Navy boys” changed their minds. “They were better looking, so we joined the Navy,” she said, laughing. Her service was cut short when, at boot camp, she was diagnosed with tuberculosis. “I was so disappointed.” Banks spent the next 27 months in a hospital, where she met the man who would be her second husband. “He and I used to go under the fence and go dancing every night,” she said. They were married eight years, but their romance was doomed, she said, by his alcoholism. Meanwhile, Banks started listening to those who had encouraged her to try modeling. After six months of school, she found work right away with Catalina Swimwear modeling bathing suits and sportswear, and other jobs soon followed.

11

g o l den t i me s “I found myself on the biggest billboard in Los Angeles,” she said. “Huge billboard — I swear it was as wide as this room — for Sweetheart Soap.” The next step for many models was Hollywood and Banks tested the waters there, too. “I had put my application in to be a starlet at RKO (Pictures),” she said. “We learned how to be movie stars. They’d teach us the angles and where to speak and how to talk — the whole thing. We’d sit on the back of cars — convertibles — and wave and smile and have pictures taken.” After her marriage dissolved, she decided to try her luck in New York. She went with about $200 in her pocket and found she’d arrived at the wrong time of year for modeling work. After an unfortunate first job that never paid, she stumbled upon work modeling coats and suits. “I finally had enough money to rent a small apartment, about like this one,” she said, looking around the space she shares today with her plump Yorkshire terrier, Babette. Eventually, she said, she walked the runway at fashion shows for many of the elite houses of the day, including Christian Dior. “They sent me to Europe on some of those jobs,” she said, listing London, Paris and Milan among the cities in which she worked. As her career was blossoming, Banks once again met a man. “He was wealthy, handsome,” she said, wistfully. “We moved into a gorgeous home in New Jersey, with a swimming pool, a beautiful Mark III car, tennis court — we had everything. Just a dream.” It was, as it turned out, too good to be true. “I thought, here I am — I’m going to stay with this man for the rest of my life,” she said of her third husband, to whom she was married 10 years. “But he was a control freak. I couldn’t do anything without him right there.” It took moving West again, to Clarkston where her mother was living, for Banks to meet the love of her life. “I was trepidatious to a great degree,” she said, of meeting Bennie Banks. “But he turned out to be the most understanding, the sweetest, the greatest guy in the whole world.” Her fourth husband “wasn’t handsome, wasn’t tall, wasn’t broad shouldered — he just was wonderful,” she said. He was a horseback guide out of Joseph, Ore., where he had a ranch, Banks said, and he taught at LewisClark State College, where he helped start the vocational-technical program.

Tribune/Steve Hanks

Estelle Banks, of Lewiston, smiles brightly while talking about her life’s journey. They lived in Joseph until his health — he was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease — forced them to move into an assisted living facility in Lewiston. He died three years ago, at age 95. The biggest photo on her wall is of Bennie in the mountains on horseback, a green valley stretching out behind him. She seems at peace talking about him, the true love she finally found

after a life of adventures and misadventures. Broemeling said she never tires of hearing Banks talk about either. “I just learn a lot about life,” Broemeling said. “She does just as much for me as I do for her.”  Stone can be reached at mstone@ lmtribune.com or (208) 848-2244.

Halloween Spider or Anytime!

She sits in her web, and I sit down beside her on the porch. And we have a nice talk as she waits in her web. A fly comes by and lands beside me. I swat it dead as it can be. Then I pitch it in the spider’s web she sucks the juice out. OH, so tender and sweet, she holds it in her feet. She has waited for that wonderful treat. I think she waits on me to kill a fly. She hurries when I pitch the fly into her web. Without me to kill the flies for her she might be dead. So I hurry home to see the spider and kill a fly for her. It’s nice to see her spring to her feet on the web. She loves fly meat. And I love to feed the spider she is a good friend until her end. Then I will find another

About A Bully

By all rights, my big fat ugly cousin Irene, should have been like us, a normal teen. But she lisped like Sylvester Cat, let wind and spit stuttered and snorted in between. When our bunch got to middle school, I’ll admit, our ragging her got pretty cruel. Irene was pigeon-toed, wore saddle glasses,

and had icky zits. I mean, totally uncool. Yet most teachers saw her a model child, respectful and attentive, not one bit wild. But homely to us was having messy pants. When we let her know, Irene just smiled. The change began at about grade eight, with contacts and loss of all that weight. Up to then, no one looked at Irene’s face. Now she had eyes, not crossed but straight. As her form filled in, her chest popped out. The change in Irene was all we talked about. Yet I, who loved her, behaved the worst,

my blame and my shame without a doubt. This poor girl now has all she’s been denied, The world has opened and invited her inside. It is I, the bully, besmirched and much aware how it feels, having nearly caused a suicide. Dan J. Williams, 83, Lewiston

Surprise

Long ago, before I could read, Mother showed me a big bright red “TEN” on her kitchen calendar. She said it will be a new star. Mother’s homemade games were fun, all the family helped it run. They kept me busy counting ten, asking often what day and when? Please be patient, please be still, the baby comes when e’r she will. Lucille Magnuson, 93, Moscow

New generation of implants adds mileage to worn-out knees By Landon Hall

The Orange County Register

SANTA ANA, Calif. — Denise Olson danced at her daughter’s wedding. That might not sound like a profound accomplishment, but it was a moment she could only dream of a few months earlier. Arthritis had worn away so much of the cartilage in Olson’s right knee

it was just bone grinding on bone. The pain had steadily worsened for two years, making it difficult for her to walk up the stairs of her home. She teaches first-grade in Irvine, Calif., and it’s tough to meet the all-day needs of 30 kids when you can barely rise from your chair. On April 23, she had total knee replacement surgery. Four weeks later, she was back in class. On July 13, her daughter Lauren got

married and Denise was able to walk down the aisle. Later, during the reception, when Denise and her husband, Chad, were sitting together, the DJ played “Come Away With Me” by Norah Jones, which happens to be the couple’s song. He invited her onto the dance floor. She accepted. “Just the two of us got up and danced on the floor. It was wonderful,” said Olson, who is 54. “I got to dance with my daughter and my son-in-law.

felt unstable as they tried to walk stairs, or that the gadgets simply felt strange inside them. “The goal was, what’s it going to take to make it invisible?” Caillouette said. Hoag Orthopedic Institute, which opened in November 2010, has become one of the highestvolume orthopedic centers in the country. Nearly 1,500 knee replacements were performed there in 2012, a 28 percent increase over 2011. DePuy launched the Attune in March (Caillouette im-

planted the first one on the West Coast), and between that model and the others, the 70-bed hospital should become an even busier place. Patients are usually kept for at least one night after undergoing the procedure, but the protocol for their treatment has changed vastly over the years. Knee surgery hurts, a lot, and this used to be a deal-breaker for many patients. But Caillouette says patients receive different kinds of pain treatment: Gone are the days when only general anesthesia would be used, leaving the patient groggy and out of sorts upon awakening. Also, more care is taken to avoid cutting some soft tissue inside the knee. “Now a patient will wake up from surgery without pain,” said Caillouette, who along with Gorab is a founding partner of the Hoag institute. “They don’t need IV narcotic pain medicine around the clock, because we’re giving them little doses of different things, as opposed to hitting them with a sledgehammer.” Patients are now encouraged, by nurses and physical therapists, to begin walking within six hours.

his X-rays show almost no wear at all in his models, called the Smith & Nephew Journey. He’d had problems with the right knee for years, and it finally gave out while he was competing in the 2001 Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii. “I feel like I’m 25,” Brooks, who is 72 and in remarkable

physical shape, said. He doesn’t race so much anymore, but he still runs 25 miles a week, bikes 150 miles and swims 5,000 to 8,000 yards. “I’m grateful for the fact that I got two gifts, so I can continue doing what I want to do.” Lieberman said those kinds of stories inspire him.

But even the boomers’ Greatest Generation parents are getting the implants in higher numbers. Life expectancy keeps increasing, of course, but there’s also a greater awareness of how quickly health can decline if immobility leaves an elderly person homebound and isolated. “A lot of the patients will come in and think they’re too old. And there’s nobody who’s too old for the operation anymore,” Dr. Jay R. Lieberman said, head of orthopedic surgery at the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine. “The major reason why we do these operations in patients in their 90s is for pain and because patients will literally say to you, ‘I don’t want to live if I can’t walk.’ Because it’s not much of a life for an elderly patient to be trapped inside. They’re cut off from their family and their friends. Several companies have come out with revised knee systems this year. At an annual meeting of orthopedic surgeons in Chicago earlier this year, there was so much buzz about the new versions of knee implants on display that the trade magazine Orthopedic Design and Technology dubbed 2013 “the year of the knee.” Researchers studied how patients move and what deficiencies had hampered previous designs. Although knee replacement had historically been a very successful procedure, some patients had complained that their implants

High blood pressure a silent killer Have you ever been told your blood pressure was high and you should see a provider about it? You wonder why. It’s not that bad, what’s the big deal? High blood pressure is a higher than normal pressure within the arteries that carry blood to your vital organs. When blood flows into these organs under this higher pressure, changes occur within the organs over time which weaken them and greatly increase the risk of complications such as heart attack and stroke. What causes high blood pressure? Many factors work together including genetic tendency, excessive intake of salt, alcoholic beverages, poor diet and lack of exercise leading to being overweight, chronic emotional distress, etc.

Other chronic diseases such as sleep apnea, thyroid disease and certain medications like anti-inflammatories also contribute. High blood pressure is defined as greater than 140/90, but studies show even milder elevations or “prehypertension” are also significant and helping patients develop healthy habits during that phase can reduce their overall risks and help delay the need for medications. Most patients have no symptoms of high blood pressure at these lower levels, but the damage goes on, hence the term “silent killer.” At least 30 percent of adult Americans have high blood pressure, yet only about 50 percent of those are adequately treated for this deadly disease. What can you do, you ask?

Transitional Care When You O Only nly Need To Visi Visitt

First, be sure you and your loved ones have their blood pressure checked at least every one to two years so it can be treated early to reduce the risk of complications especially at younger ages. Second, improve health habits by consuming less sodium in your diet, increasing intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, and low fat dairy products (the DASH diet). Also, drinking alcohol in moderation (no more than one drink on average per day for women or two for men), limiting caffeine, getting adequate sleep, finding ways to manage stress better and getting regular aerobic exercise for 30 minutes most days of the week, are all helpful ways to reducing high blood pressure. Third, if your provider feels a medication is needed, talk to them about any con-

What ails baby boomers as they age? As baby boomers march toward retirement at the rate of 10,000 a day, they are encountering unexpected ailments along the way. These are not diseases that will kill them but nuisances that remind them they are aging. And aging is not something baby boomers take in stride, as evidenced by the popularity of Botox and Viagra. Among the ailments being diagnosed in increasing numbers, as middle age attacks America’s most populous generation, are these five: shingles, vertigo, tinnitus, weakened depth perception and menopausal acne. More people check into the doctor’s office with these afflictions because they’re living longer and discovering new issues, said Dr. Michael Link, a family practitioner in Kissimmee, Fla. “My practice has aged with me,” said Link, who opened his office 30 years ago. Though doctors struggle to explain why the immune system takes a dip between ages 40 and 50, they suggest the best way to avoid these irritants is to practice a healthful lifestyle. “The key to middle age is to stay active, eat healthy and don’t give up,” said Dr. Seth Johnson, a family practitioner in Altamonte Springs, Fla. Here are some ways to slow down and combat the five common baby-boomer ailments. Shingles: This painful skin rash occurs when the virus that caused chickenpox during childhood returns

for round two. Before age 50, the chance of developing shingles is just 1 percent to 2 percent. But after 50, the chance nearly doubles: 2 percent to 3 percent. A vaccine can decrease the likelihood of contracting shingles, but Johnson doesn’t recommend it for patients younger than 50. The vaccine cuts the risk in half. “If you have a pain you can’t explain for a day or two and then see a rash, contact your physician,” Johnson said. If untreated, the virus can cause tender water blisters and worse. “It can lead to nerve damage and pain for years to come,” said Dr. J. Matthew Knight, a dermatologist in Orlando, Fla. The most effective treatment is anti-viral medication used within 72 hours of an outbreak, he said. Vertigo: A sensation of dizziness, benign vertigo is most likely caused by natural aging or a head trauma that lodges tiny crystals into the wrong area of the ear. This sends bad information to the brain and knocks off the sense of balance, said Dr. J. Daniel Mancini, Winter Park, Fla., internal-medicine practitioner. Vertigo can happen to anyone of any age, but it is more common among patients aged 40 to 60. “Every time they lie down or roll over, the whole room starts spinning for 10 to 30 seconds,” said Winter Park ear, nose and throat specialist Dr. Jeffrey Baylor. If you suspect you have vertigo, Baylor recommended being tested by an ear, nose and throat

specialist to rule out more-extreme causes such as a tumor or stroke. If correctly diagnosed by a doctor, benign positional vertigo is treatable through the Epley maneuver, said Dr. Clifford Dubbin, an Orlando ENT specialist. The Epley maneuver involves sequential movements of the head, staying in each of the four positions for 30 seconds. “If you know you have it, you can save a week or two of misery and do the maneuver,” he said. Dubbin also said benign vertigo can slowly disappear on its own over time. Weakened depth perception: Reading glasses often become a necessity for aging eyes, but many Americans don’t realize depth perception can also become an issue, even creating a driving hazard. As vision deteriorates over time, Johnson said, eyes can be-

come less symmetrical. For inResearch shows as depth perstance, one eye might see things ception begins to deteriorate, one near while the other sees far. This difference affects depth percep See BOOMERS, page 21 tion.

Do-si-do your way to good health MOSCOW — Promenading through your day is just another way to stay fit — in mind and body. In 1994, Mayo Clinic physician Dr. Aaron Blackburn wrote a letter about the benefits of square dancing, noting it was not only good physical exercise but also a good way to keep your mind alert. So often in today’s get-fit society people submerge themselves in fitness regimens and act like it’s torture. I think it is great to find an exercise program that doesn’t feel like a workout and especially doesn’t feel like torture, unless you’re a kid that is. Many of us learned to square dance in grade school at a time when we may not have wanted to touch the opposite sex. Gary and Karen Bloomfield, current presidents of the Palouse Promenaders Square and Round Dance Club in Moscow, think that may be what holds Commentary people back from square dancing as adults. “They say they don’t like it, but they haven’t done it since they were kids, when they were made to in school,” Karen said. I met up with the group recently at the Latah County Fair giving a demonstration of their talents. They meet on the first and third Saturdays from September through May at Lena Whitmore Elementary School. This is an all-inclusive club. They have had participants as old as 90 and as young as 12. Their goal is to get people to enter the square, bow to their partner and have a swinging good time. The group also does round dancing, which is different from square dancing. The social round dancing of today is a cued

ballroom type of dancing that moves in a circular pattern. Like the caller of square dancing there is what is known as a cuer for round dancing. This person gives instructions, just as a caller does in square dancing, as to what steps to do next. The group has both a caller and a cuer for their dances. Gary Potratz is the traditional square dance caller for the group and John Rich is the round dance cuer. Many of the members have been dancing for years. The newbies, who started about three years ago and are in their 40s, fit in with the members who have been dancing for 40 years as if they have known each other all their lives. “We’re a family,” one member told me. The group travels together and, during the summer break, several of them camp together. The members gave me several reasons they enjoy dancing and being part of the group. Everything from the dresses to keeping their spouse happy

of the most dangerous driving maneuvers is a left turn in traffic, said AARP spokesman Dave Bruns. The advocacy group has created a defensive-driving program that includes strategies for dealing with depth-perception loss. Along with dulled depth perception, baby boomers might find they can’t see as well in dim light, which also affects their driving abilities. Tinnitus: That ringing, buzzing, hissing, sizzling sound in your ears has a name — tinnitus. And it’s fairly common among baby boomers. “A lot of us grew up listening to hard rock in the ’70s and ’80s, and it can take a toll,” Mancini said. The condition can last for a week to several years. Tinnitus is related to high-frequency hearing loss, Baylor said, and is cumulative. “Even when you’re not at the point of hearing loss, one thing you’ll start noticing is a high-pitched ring,” he said. The ringing of the ears makes up for the absence of sound, and once you hear a ring, it’s likely to recur. There isn’t a tried-and-true solution for tinnitus, but Baylor said for patients who have hearing loss and wear hearing aids, there’s a 50 percent to 70 percent chance of recovering from tinnitus. To prevent the condition, wear earplugs to loud concerts and ear protection at a shooting range, he said. Menopausal acne: It’s like being a teenager all over again. Oily skin and red bumps can reappear around the time women enter menopause. As a teenager, acne develops because of a surge in hormones, Knight said. During menopause, estrogen levels drop and testosteronelike compounds form, causing acne. Menopausal acne might not be as severe as a teenager’s, but it could last as long as one to two years. “You do see people who spent their whole adult life without acne” only to develop it at the onset of menopause, Knight said. “And it’s frustrating” for them. Retinoids, more commonly known as Retin-A, help prevent and deal with acne, said Knight. In addition to reducing puffy oil glands, the topical medicine also combats fine lines, wrinkles and skin cancers.
