A pair of fishermen try their luck at Bacon Creek Park in Sioux City in mid-December.
Ice fishing just isn’t for Terry Not long ago I read an article by retired Sioux City Journal editor Larry Myhre about getting ready for ice fishing. As I read the article I had a flashback to many years ago when I too went ice fishing. First of all let me say that I’m not a fisherman and never have been. But I do know ice fishing is not for the timid or faint of heart. It’s only for those who wish to endure hours of freezing Terry Turner boredom in order email@example.com to catch a fish. To me the only difference between ice fishing and regular fishing is the freezing part. It was back in the early 1950s and I was living in Omaha. I was probably around 10 years old when I was introduced to ice fishing. One winter my family which consisted of my mother, my older brother Dick,
sister Betty and I went to Falls City, Nebraska to visit some friends and relatives. My brother and I were both born there and our sister was born in a nearby town. Our father had passed away in 1950 and since he was a railroad engineer our family had a free pass and could travel by train wherever and whenever we wanted. And because Falls City is only about 100 miles south of Omaha we made that trip quite often. On this occasion we went to visit my Aunt Vera and Uncle Mart. They lived just outside of Falls City on a small acreage. And not far from their home was a lake. When we got there Uncle Mart asked my brother and I if we’d like to go ice fishing with him. Fishing for ice? I thought to myself. Sounds a little strange. Uncle Mart must have noticed the confused look on my face. “You go out on the ice and cut a hole,” he explained, “and then you drop your line in and wait.” I was to find out later that “wait” was the most important part of that sentence. Dick and I agreed to go while our

mother and sister stayed behind in the warmth of the house. It was one of those bitterly cold Nebraska days when the icy wind seems to cut through any outer clothing to chill your body through and through. The sky was gray and there was a feeling of impending snow in the air. Back then I didn’t mind the cold and that day I didn’t really mind at all because I was out with the big guys and I was going ice fishing whatever the heck that was. Today hardy ice fishermen like Larry Myhre have gas powered augurs to drill through the ice and comfy shacks to install over the hole. But I don’t remember any of that back then. As I recall Uncle Mart had a hand powered auger to make the hole and nothing in the way of a shelter. He cut a hole in the thick ice and my brother and I gathered around for instructions. “First you bait the hook,” he explained. I was to go fishing with Uncle Mart several times in the following years and he used a variety of bait. The one that sticks out in my memory is the apply named “stink bait” and that may have been what we used that day. We all baited our hooks and sat on makeshift chairs. I seem to recall Uncle Mart had a folding stool while Dick had a bucket and I had a small wooden box. I looked at my fishing companions who were intently starring at the hole in the ice. I starred too. After what seemed an eternity of looking at those three lines that
disappeared into the murky depths of that freezing water I began to feel a need. The cold air was beginning to act on my 10 year old bladder. “Uh...Uncle Mart?” I said. He looked at me. “I need to uh...well...go.” He pointed to the shoreline. “Pick a tree,” he said. I looked at my brother. He inclined his head toward the trees in apparent agreement. Being from the big city of Omaha I was used to indoor plumbing. This seemed to be rather crude. I reluctantly got up and headed for the nearest vegetation. Several years ago I saw an episode of “Seinfeld” and they talked about men and shrinkage when it’s cold. I learned that lesson behind a tree by the lake on that cold winter day. After several hours of sitting there we caught enough for supper that night and went home. After watching Uncle Mart clean our catch I decided fishing wasn’t for me. And I still feel that way. Today the coldest I get when I want fish for dinner is reaching in the freezer at the local grocery store. Although fishing is not for me I admire those hardy souls like Larry Myhre who brave the elements to get those slimy denizens of the deep especially when the temperature is colder than a motherin-law’s kiss. And they work hard to catch one of those finny creatures. As for me, the most energy I’ll expend to get a fish is when I point to it on the menu.

Eastman house a snapshot of history By TERRy TURNER Prime staff writer
ROCHESTER, N.Y. - George Eastman has been called the “Father of popular photography” and for good reason. Through his development of easy to use cameras and film Eastman made photography available to everyone. The story of this amazing man and his contribution to photography can be seen today at the George Eastman House in Rochester. George Eastman was born July 12, 1854, in the village of Waterville, some 20 miles southwest of Utica, in upstate New York. George was the youngest of three children born to Maria Kilbourn and George Washington Eastman. The family moved to Rochester when George was five years old. It was there the elder Eastman founded Eastman Commercial College but died just a few years later leaving the family essentially penniless. At just 14 years old George decided to quit school in order to support his widowed mother and two sisters, one of whom was severely handicapped. He found a job as an office boy in an insurance company and later worked as a clerk in a local bank. While at the bank Eastman saved his money and decided to travel to Santa Domingo. While there he wanted to invest in some land. He needed to take some photos of the property and purchased all the equipment needed to take a wet-plate photograph. In addition to a large camera, Eastman needed a heavy tripod, darkroom tent, chemicals, glass plates and water containers. The glass plates had to be coated with light sensitive materials and processed on the spot. All this just to take a photograph. Although he grew to love photography he knew there had to be a better way. After hearing about gelatin emulsions being produced in

Personalize, “To personify, to make personal, to ascribe personal qualities to”, this is how Webster’s describes the term and its definition is never more apparent that when describing the “personalization” of a monument.

film for processing. By the age of 44 George Eastman was a millionaire and in 1902 at the age of 48 he began building a house in Rochester. He bought an 8 ½ acre farm which would offer room for his planned 50-room mansion and huge gardens. The house and gardens took three years and $500,000 to build. Eastman hired the premier architectural firm in the United States at the time McKim, Mead and White of Manhattan to consult on the interior design. That same year the firm worked on the renovation of the White House for President Theodore Roosevelt. Eastman was a lifelong bachelor who lived in the home with his mother. Although he never married he did have a couple of serious relationships with women. It was rumored his mother never approved of those relationships. Eastman loved to entertain had held lavish parties in his home for friends. His philanthropic efforts benefited several schools and hospitals in the Rochester area. He also donated large sums of money to the Tuskegee University in Alabama and became close friends with its founder Booker T. Washington who would visit Eastman frequently. On one of those visits Eastman was having a formal party with a group of men all attired in tuxedos. When the butler told Eastman Booker T. Washington was walking up the driveway dressed in a business suit Eastman quickly went upstairs and changed into a suit
so his friend wouldn’t feel out of place. When in his 70s Eastman’s health began deteriorating to the point where he knew the time was not far off when he wouldn’t be able to walk. On March 14, 1932, at the age of 77 George Eastman took his own life in his upstairs bedroom in the home he loved. He left a simple note stating, “To my friends, my work is done. Why wait?” After his death the house and grounds were willed to the University of Rochester who used the residence to house their presidents until 1947. The University then donated the property to the newly-formed George Eastman House, Inc. a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a museum of photography as a memorial to George Eastman. In 1987 renovation work began to bring the home back to the way it was when Eastman lived there. Today visitors can tour the massive home and walk through the gardens George Eastman loved. Guided tours are available or visitors can pick up an audio device free of charge. Exhibits and galleries depict the history and ever changing future of photography. The lower level of the building houses the museum collection of equipment and photographs. The museum store offers unique books and gifts while the George Eastman House Café has a variety of soups, sandwiches and deserts for every taste.

Do presidents really age faster? Despite gray hair and wrinkles, U.S. presidents tend to live longer than peers, study says By LINDSEy TANNER The Associated Press
CHICAGO — White House wannabes take note: Contrary to the idea that being president speeds up aging, a study shows that many U.S. commanders in chief have actually lived longer than their peers. Using life expectancy data for men the same age as presidents on their inauguration days, the study found that 23 of 34 presidents who died of natural causes lived several years longer than expected. The four former presidents still alive have already lived longer than predicted, or likely will because they’re in good health, the study said. “The graying of hair and wrinkling of the skin seen in presidents while they’re in office are normal elements of human aging,” said study author S. Jay Olshansky, a researcher on aging at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Stress can speed up those two outward signs of aging, and it’s possible that job stress has made some presidents appear to age quickly. But the study shows that doesn’t mean being doomed to an early grave. “We don’t actually know if they get more gray hair or more wrinkles” than other men their age. “But even if they did, we don’t die of gray hair and wrinkles,” Olshansky said. Given that most of the 43 men who have served as president have been college-educated, wealthy and had access to the best doctors, their long lives are actually not that surprising, he said. His study is published in Wednesday’s Journal of the

President Barack Obama is shown in these photos, the left Aug. 28, 2008, in Denver, and the right Jan. 25, 2011, in Washington, D.C. A new study shows that contrary to the idea that being president speeds up the aging process, many U.S. commanders in chief have lived longer than their peers. American Medical Association. The idea that presidents age quickly comes from casual observation and more studious assessments. Promoters of that idea include Dr. Michael Roizen, chairman of Cleveland Clinic’s Wellness Institute and co-founder of RealAge, Inc. The “real age” concept suggests that age depends partly on lifestyle factors including stress and diet that either keep people young or prematurely age them. Roizen theorizes that presidents age twice as fast while in office. Roizen said Olshansky’s study doesn’t disprove that idea and only shows “that in order to run for president you tend to be incredibly healthy.” Olshansky stands by his findings. The 34 presidents who died of natural causes were aged 73 on average at death, a few months less than Olshansky’s’ life expectancy estimate. But under the accelerated aging theory, their average age of death would have been 68, he said. The 23 presidents who lived longer than Olshansky’s projections died at an average age of 78, 11 years later than under the accelerated aging theory. The four presidents who were assassinated — Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William
McKinley and John F. Kennedy — were aged 52 on average at death. The first eight presidents were almost 80 years old on average when they died, at a time when the average life expectancy for men was less than age 35. “It’s absolutely extraordinary that they lived this long,” Olshansky said. That includes John Adams, who died at 90; James Madison, 85; and Thomas Jefferson, 83. Ditto the last eight presidents who died — seven lived longer than expected; Lyndon Johnson was the only one who didn’t. He died of a heart attack at age 64, 10 years less than his projected life expectancy and five years less than his life expectancy with accelerated aging, Olshansky said. Among the more recent presidents, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford both died at 93. Jimmy Carter and George H. W. Bush are both 87. Olshansky has even done some projecting about 50-yearold President Barack Obama. Given his age when inaugurated, Obama’s life expectancy would be 79, but Olshansky estimates that Obama will live to at least 82 because of his education, wealth and access to top-notch health care.
Some reject retirement, keep working even into 90s BY JAMIE STENGLE
Maxine Bennett, 91, laughs during an interview at her jewelry store in Dallas. Bennett is part of a growing number of people who continue working way past the usual retirement age.
The Associated Press
DALLAS — At 91, Maxine Bennett still works six days a week at her jewelry store: keeping the books, helping customers and occasionally going on buying trips. Retirement’s not for her. “At 65 I was just really getting started,” Bennett said. She is part of a growing number of people who continue working way past the usual retirement age. The reasons are as unique as the individuals themselves. There are those who can’t afford to retire, but there also are those who made midlife career switches and want to see their new vocation through, and others, like Bennett, who simply enjoy going into work each day. “Mother lives because she works. If she went home, didn’t do anything, there’s not enough crosswords for her to keep busy all day long,” said her daughter, Beverly Bennett.
The Associated Press
“Basically, this may be working, but this is really mother’s living.” The idea of a set retirement age at 65 is changing as companies drop pensions, and people are living lon-
ger and staying healthier, said Jean Setzfand, AARP’s vice president of financial security. “Our belief here is we want people to work as long as they desire to do so,” Setzfand
said. U.S. Department of Labor statistics show that the number of people 75 and older who work full or part-time has risen from about 487,000, or 4.2 percent, in 1990, to 1.2 million, or 6.9 percent, last year. Beverly Bennett, herself 70, also has no plans to retire from the family store, where she, too, works six days a week. “When you’re at work and you have your head down and you’re working very, very hard, you don’t know you’re 70 years old,” Beverly Bennett said. “If you don’t have great outside interests, if you’re not busy with other people, you need to be busy at work.” What’s important is staying involved, whether that means working or something else, said Jay Magaziner, a gerontologist who chairs the department of epidemiology and public health at the University of Maryland School of

Histo r ry Under Construction... A Railroad Museum-in-the-making! For nearly a century, the Milwaukee Railroad Shops have been standing in a valley nestled between the Loess Hills Bluffs and the Big Sioux River along State Highway 12, Loess Hills National Scenic Byway. Located in the north Riverside area of Sioux City, the Milwaukee Railroad Shops are historically important as one of the nation’s largest surviving collections of buildings and structures associated with a steam locomotive servicing terminal and rail car repair facility. The Milwaukee Railroad Shops were built in 1917 on sixty acres of land. The complex originally consisted of a 30-stall roundhouse with turntable, eighteen backshop buildings, a power plant, two water towers, a wood coal tower, and two sand towers. Today, the Milwaukee Railroad Shops cover 30 acres with a six-stall roundhouse, turntable, four backshop buildings, one wood sand tower and several foundation remnants.
Milwaukee Railroad Shops Historic District
Sioux Cit y, IOWA 3400 Sioux River Road I-29 Exit 151 • IA Hwy 12 No rth Loess Hills National Scenic Byway
The Milwaukee Railroad Shops were originally built to function as workplaces for railroad workers to repair and maintain the Milwaukee Road’s fleet of steam locomotives, freight cars, and passenger cars. During its peak years of operations in the 1920s and 1930s, over 500 craft and trades workers serviced and repaired approximately 850 steam locomotives a month and tens of thousands of rail cars a year. The workers were employed in craft professions such as boiler makers, machinists, carpenters, pipefitters, steam fitters, and many other trades. The railroad downsized the complex during the early 1950s when the railroad industry transitioned from steam locomotives to diesel engines. The railroad abandoned the shops in the 1980s and subsequently sold the complex to a local salvage operator. The Siouxland Historical Railroad Association bought the complex in 1996 and began its historic preservation work to transform the Milwaukee Railroad Shops into a railroad museum. In converting the Milwaukee Railroad Shops to a railroad museum, the volunteer developers are preserving the features of the roundhouse and other structures to give visitors an understanding of what work went on in the buildings and why this site has historic significance. The Milwaukee Railroad Shops are designated a historic district eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places and are recognized as an official project of the Save America Treasures Program. The railroad shops are home to Sioux City’s iconic steam locomotive, Great Northern Railway No. 1355.

Medicine. “For some people, staying engaged and doing meaningful activities can be accomplished through leisure and retirement activities,” Magaziner said. For those who want to work, being selfemployed or having knowledge valued by an employer can help ensure that happens, said Sara Rix, senior strategic policy adviser in the AARP’s Public Policy Institute. Like the Bennetts, 82-year-old Darrell Reneker can’t imagine life without working. The distinguished professor of polymer science at The University of Akron still works full time teaching and conducting research. “I get paid, but my lifestyle isn’t so dependent on that. What else would I do that’s more interesting? And the answer is I can’t think of anything,” said Reneker, who starts every day with an early morning run. Raised in the small West Texas town of Rankin, Maxine Bennett left business college after getting hired as a bookkeeper. While her two children grew up, she worked a variety of jobs, from switchboard operator to bookkeeper to butcher. “I can’t remember not working and not enjoying it,” she said. During the 1960s, her husband’s job as a drilling superintendent for an oil company took them to Iraq, Kuwait, Mozambique, Tunisia, Libya and Singapore. At most stops, she found jobs as well. When he died of a heart attack in Saudi Arabia in 1973, at age 54, “life as I had known it ended,” she 8 | Prime | www.siouxlandprime.com
said. Returning to Texas after 13 years overseas, she found a purpose when her son, Scotty, came up with an idea: buy Native American jewelry and sell it overseas. That didn’t exactly take off, but from that a business was born. By the mid-1970s, the Bennetts opened Castle Gap Jewelry in Dallas. Maxine Bennett says she knows many people who retire are “as happy as they can be.” But for her, “When you find something that you enjoy and you don’t have to do it — I guess that it makes it all the more interesting.” John Adams, 79, who took over his father’s Dallas paint store in 1977, said his work is fulfilling because he’s able to help people. “Somebody comes in with a problem, you help them with it,” said Adams, who sells paint and frames pictures at Adams Paint Center. “They’re not just my customers, they’re my friends,” he said. Adams’ previous jobs included supervisor at a baking company and running a restaurant. The Rev. John Naus, the 87-year-old chaplain of Marquette University’s Alumni Memorial Union, said he advises students to find a career that lets them make a difference in people’s lives. Ordained as a priest in 1955, Naus has a doctorate in philosophy, taught high school, and was a philosophy professor at St. Louis University before going to Marquette in the early 1960s, where he has held posts including director of spiritual welfare and assistant to the university president.
Specialists in late-life downsizing on rise Help’s available for the late-life downsize: paring possessions and relocating By LEANNE ITALIE Associated Press
Carol Gilbert remembers well the heartache and hassle of watching her aging parents struggle to remain in their house of 45 years; the desperate, last-minute calls for help and her dad’s isolation as her mom’s health declined. She also remembers the frustration of going through their things once they finally agreed to relocate to a senior care facility nearby in San Mateo, Calif. “I must have gone up to the house every Saturday for a year helping them sort through their stuff,” Gilbert said. “I couldn’t get my mother to make decisions or really do much each visit.” Once settled in the smaller space, surrounded by peers, her father’s burden lifted. He got his wish to remain with his wife and began enjoying life again at 86. Gilbert is now 72 herself and her folks are long dead, but their rocky transition in 1992 motivated her and her husband, David, to consider retirement housing at a much earlier stage. She was only 64 and he 67 when they moved into a full-amenity complex in Palo Alto, Calif., about 20 miles from the rural, ranch-style home where they had spent 35 years and raised their daughter. There’s a chef, a pool, a fitness center, a TV lounge with surround sound and a music room with a grand piano. There’s a housekeeping service, a balcony for a small garden and entertainment at least once a month. “I’ve never looked back,” Gilbert said. “At that time we were the kids here. We certainly weren’t candidates for God’s waiting room.” As Americans live longer, many people find themselves navigating

As the population ages, many people find themselves navigating a confusing web of interconnected services for themselves or their parents when it comes time to shed possessions and relocate.

Some, like the Gilberts, use hard-won lessons from their parents’ experience to take control of their own late-life downsize while they still have time to enjoy it. Others have created a new industry, becoming “senior specialists” to help make those transitions less troublesome. Such specialists span business worlds, from real estate and financial planning to moving, home staging, personal organizing and “late-life coaching.” Roughly 25,000 have sought training and education to
focus on senior logistics, said Nan Hayes, a senior relocation specialist in suburban Chicago who is also a trainer. In addition to logistics, they provide emotional breathing room between grown children and aging parents, Hayes said. “If your parents feel comfortable with the process, if they feel they have some control over it, things will run much more smoothly,” she said. “If you have to argue to make your point or force your opinions and decisions on your parents, you will find yourself up against a roadblock. No one will feel good. Moving mom and dad doesn’t have to be a nightmare.”
Cincinnati, John Buckles went through a troubling transition with his parents. Determined to enjoy their retirement and hold on to their house, they were forced by ill health into a senior care facility instead, leaving him to sort through decades of their possessions. “I had no clue what they owned,” he said. “I remember being pissed off because there were thousands of books. I must have gotten rid of 2,000 before I realized there was stuff inside of them, like a little story my mother wrote about me, and money.” The experience prompted him to co-found Caring Transitions.

As the population ages, many people find themselves navigating a confusing web of interconnected services for themselves or their parents when it comes time to shed possessions and relocate. Some, like the Gilberts, use hard-won lessons from their parents’ experience to take control of their own latelife downsize while they still have time to enjoy it.

country, the company provides “general contractors” who do what faraway relatives often can’t: make sure that moving companies, real estate agents, liquidators, charities, disposal companies, appraisers, cleaners and home stagers are working together with the older person’s best interest in mind. Buckles and Hayes encourage a “sooner-rather-than-later” approach to sifting through possessions, whether the person is moving or looking to “age in place” through home modifications such as handrails and stair lifts. That approach to late-life housing doesn’t negate the value of a good home clean-out, they said. “If you want to remain independent longer, you must start making the decisions and acting now to preserve that independence,” said Hayes, who launched a network, MoveSeniors.com, that works with organizations around the country to provide reliable specialists and advice. “I’ve witnessed too many situations where adult children are forced to make tough decisions about mom’s home and possessions because she kept putting it off,” she said. The emotional toll on an older person can be heavy, bringing on anxiety, depression, sleeplessness and short-term mem-
ory loss, said Hayes and Tracy Greene Mintz, a social worker in Redondo Beach, Calif., who specializes in a body of symptoms known as “relocation stress syndrome.” “It’s a train, and everybody gets on the moving-mom-anddad train, and it’s easy to focus on the logistical details because they don’t require you to address the emotional aspects of the move,” Mintz said. “Then mom and dad get to their place and they just shut down.” There’s a lot that families can do to de-stress a late-life downsize: SLOW IT DOWN: Sometimes, Buckles said, resistance to shedding that grandfather clock or box of old aprons is driven by the owner’s desire to tell the stories behind them. “Once that’s done, once somebody took the time to listen, they can give it up,” he said. GIFTING POSSESSIONS: Planning to pass down something once you’re gone? Don’t wait. “I’ve comforted hundreds of clients who have had to watch their possessions being donated, sold or tossed in a Dumpster,” Hayes said. “Take the time to decide what you really need or love, and take steps to get rid of everything else NOW.” FALSE SPIN: Nobody wants to be the emotional downer, and that can lead to stiff, empty attempts
to stay positive when everybody’s hurting, Mintz said. “Ask mom or dad, ‘Does any of this make you feel anxious? Does any of this make you feel a little bit sad?’ That tiny nudge goes miles toward a better outcome in the new place,” she said. HOME STAGING: Mom has always stored the silverware in the top drawer to the right of the fridge. Make sure that happens in her new home. Bring along her favorite beat-up ottoman that you wanted to toss, and have her new place set up with pictures on the wall and slippers bedside when she moves in. SPOUSES: Jo Magnum in Raleigh, N.C., twice downsized her parents with the help of her three siblings. They made a pact: no spouses involved. “They weren’t allowed in on the conversations over who took what, where our parents went, who took care of the money. They weren’t even allowed in the room,” she said. “We just didn’t need them there.” DOWNSIZE THE DOWNSIZE: Organizer Vickie Dellaquila in Pittsburgh wrote a book, “Don’t Toss My Memories in the Trash: A Stepby-Step Guide to Helping Seniors Downsize, Organize and Move.” Her advice? Don’t give up everything in a set if it means that much. Save six rather than all 12 place settings of the good china or silverware. The same goes for treasured books.

friends. Students cite benefits, too. Vicki Centurelli, an Ithaca College senior from Hingham, Mass., who has volunteered with retirees, says, “Hearing about different experiences allows you to reflect on your own life and see it a little bit differently, which I think is important for college students to do.” Sure, the same types of residential facilities and programming are available in communities around the country, but there’s a preponderance in college towns, said Scott Perry, president of Bankers Life and Casualty Company, which put out a study on the best U.S. cities for seniors. Among the criteria it considered were social opportunities, including the number of colleges and uni-

versities in town. “We can’t underestimate the importance of keeping our minds active as we age,” he said, adding that college communities have the resources to “allow seniors to focus on what they want to pursue in the next stage of their life.” And it’s not just intellectual and social. Typically, he said, many large universities will have teaching hospitals and even dental schools which provide health services for seniors. “They raise the quality of care in the community,” he said. In Ithaca, N.Y., the Longview retirement community offers independent and assisted living, and has a partnership with Ithaca College to promote intergenerational learning. Two or
three residents are taking classes at the college, said Breelan Nash, Longview’s recreation and volunteer coordinator. Residents also attend plays and concerts on campus, with transportation provided. At the same time, some classes for students are held at Longview, and residents can sit in, said Rhoda Meador, director of the Gerontology Institute at Ithaca College. Talking with the seniors can provide context and reality to the students’ academic subjects, she said. Sarah Furie, 20, a junior from Windsor, Conn., who is majoring in television and radio, said student volunteers have taught Longview residents about computers, performed musical programs

and done arts and crafts. Similarly, student interns teach fitness and art at the Village at Penn State and help with technology. Sports teams also visit, Lillie said. Residents can take one class a semester at Penn State. “There has to be space available and they can’t preempt a paying student,” Lillie said. But retirees don’t necessarily have to live in a facility partnered with a university to take advantage of programming at a school. Sam Wolsky, who retired to Tucson, Ariz., from Chicago to be near his children and grandchildren, said he and his late wife, Roberta, found the musical, dance and theater offerings at the University of Arizona an added benefit to their lives there. “There’s a smorgasbord of activities that you can be involved in,” said Wolsky. Colleges and universities also attract retirees who want to use their expertise and experience to pursue a second career — teaching. Ron Brown, a 64-year-old patent lawyer, decided to retire to Tucson from Minneapolis in part for an adjunct teaching position at the University of Arizona law school. He also hopes to take classes. “I have nightmares about forgetting how to do calculus,” said Brown, who studied chemistry and chemical engineering and got a PhD before going to law school. One school — the University of North Carolina at Asheville — has established an on-campus center dedicated to making retirement a fulfilling stage of life. The North Carolina Center for Creative Retirement, founded in 1988, lets retirees in the community “use their lifetime experience to solve some of the problems, make a contribution,” said Catherine Frank, the executive director. Among other programming, the center offers for a small fee some 280 classes each year, from arts and crafts to philosophy, religion and literature. About 30 percent of the members say the center was the primary reason behind their decision to retire to Asheville, Frank said. Other reasons cited include the area’s beauty and lively arts scene. The latest in the ongoing AP-APME joint project looking at the aging of the baby boomers and the impact this so-called silver tsunami will have on the communities in which they live.

Charitable groups grant seniors long-held wishes Always wanted to try that? Charitable groups grant seniors wishes of a lifetime By MELISSA KOSSLER DUTTON The Associated Press
Margarette Kirsch always wondered what it would be like to roll across America in an 18-wheeler. With the help of the Twilight Wish Foundation, the 82-year-old found out. She spent more than two weeks this summer touring the country in the cab of a semi. “I enjoyed every minute of it,” she said from her home in Merritt Island, Fla. “Would I do it again? Come down and get me.” Twilight Wish is one of several organizations dedicated to granting wishes to seniors. The foundation started eight years ago in Doylestown, Pa., as a way to enrich the lives of senior citizens, said organization president Elinor Foltz. “They have so much wisdom to impart,” she said. Helping seniors achieve lifelong dreams is a way to thank them for their contributions to society, added Jeremy Bloom, a former NFL player who founded Jeremy Bloom’s Wish of a Lifetime in 2008. He created the Denver-based foundation as a way of honoring his grandmother, Donna Wheeler, who helped raise him. Now 86, she lives in Colorado and continues to inspire him, he said. Organizations like Bloom’s and Foltz’s grant a wide variety of wishes, from visits to World War II battlefields and hot-air balloon rides to family reunions. They also help seniors with household and health needs, providing

The seniors do not have to be sick or dying as is often the case with groups that grant wishes to children. Most of the organizations require the recipients to fill out applications and demonstrate financial need. Jim Young, 85, of Memphis,
Tenn., often talked about returning to Europe to visit the places where he was stationed during World War II, but was never able to get there. “I never had enough money to make a trip like that,” said Young, a retired auto body repairman. “I just didn’t imagine I would ever be able to do anything like that.” Then he met Diane Hight, founder and presi-

Hight routinely takes veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the World War II Memorial. She also organizes trips to European battlefields. “You and I are free today because of these men,” she said. “I really want to do something for them.” Young, who first arrived in Normandy, France, after D-Day, said going back in October was exciting and emotional. “It brought back a lot of memories - some pleasant and some other types,” he said. He met with officials and residents in small towns in France, Luxembourg and Belgium. “To try and describe my emotions — it is really beyond me to say how much it means to me,” he said. “It was just a trip of a lifetime.” The trips often give veterans a sense of closure, Hight said. “These are trips of healing for people,” she said. Although Hight focuses on veterans, she also grants other types of wishes, and is often surprised by what people request. “Some are just so simple. Some are very complex,” she said. “When you’re dealing with people and their hearts and something they’ve always wanted, you never
know what you’re going to get.” Libby Magness, 84, of Cherry Hill, N.J., always dreamed of riding on a float in a parade. “Anytime there’s a parade, she’s there,” said her daughter Ruth Weisberg, who has fond memories of attending the Miss America Pageant parade in Atlantic City, N.J., and the Philadelphia Mummers Parade with her mother. Weisberg contacted Twilight Wish to see if the group could put her mother in a parade. The foundation arranged for Magness to appear in the Thanksgiving Parade in Philadelphia. “I was thrilled,” said Magness. “It was one of the highlights of my life.” Weisberg, of Philadelphia, loved watching her mother fulfill one of her dreams. “My mom has a definite joie de vivre,” she said. “She has a long list of things she’d like to try. She’s always wanted to ride in a motorcycle side car. She’d like to go for a ride on fire truck.” Foltz hopes her organization can help younger people see their elders in a new light. “Just because you’re 83 doesn’t mean you don’t have dreams and life left to live,” she said. “Our vision is to change how the world views aging one wish at a time.”

When Granny is the nanny: making shared childcare work Families work to learn how to split up childcare duties with less stress By ELLEN GIBSON
The Associated Press
Rosa Feddersen and her husband bought their dream retirement home on a lake in Oklahoma City five years ago. He, a pilot for U.S. Airways, was nearing the end of his career, and the area had everything the couple wanted. But when they learned their first grandchild was on the way in 2009, their agenda changed. After pleas from their daughter, they moved back to Pennsylvania to help with the baby. Their daughter and son-in-law are both surgeons, and Feddersen sometimes watches her granddaughter, Nora, 70 hours a week. While it’s a lot of work, she says the arrangement seems to be working for everyone. One reason: When it comes to taking care of baby, parents and grandparents try to stay out of each other’s way. “When I’m watching her, they pretty much understand that what I say goes,” Feddersen says. “But when they’re home, I totally back off.” That kind of mutual trust is essential to a successful childcare arrangement with grandparents, says Lawrence Balter, a child psychologist and parenting expert who is also a professor emeritus at New York University. Sharing childrearing duties is almost never simple. The Associated Press “Both generations are going to Rosa Feddersen watches as her 15-month-old granddaughter Nora Thiel plays dress up in her home near Middletown, Pa. have their ideal way of doing things,” he says. “You have to be able to navi- Feddersen and her husband bought their dream retirement home on a lake in Oklahoma City five years ago.

More and more families are finding themselves in these murky waters. According to the most recent Census data, 30 percent of pre-school children with employed mothers are cared for by a grandparent, while 21 percent attend a daycare center. And the economic woes of the past few years have led parents to seek more help from relatives, says Donna Butts, executive director of Generations United, a non-profit based in Washington D.C. In addition to being a moneysaving option — the average cost of center-based daycare is approaching $12,000 a year — letting grandparents take care of the kids has other benefits, Butts says. Children learn about their family history and are cared for by adults who love them, while parents can have more flexible schedules. As for the grandparents, a 2007 study by Linda Waite, a professor of sociology at the University of Chicago, found that grandmothers who babysit 200 to 500 hours per year exercise more and get depressed less often. But these arrangements can also be tricky because there isn’t the same clearly defined code of conduct that would apply with a professional daycare provider. Balter shares these tips for ensuring that everyone remains healthy and happy. Set clear expectations. Determine how many hours each week the grandparent will care for the child, during what times and at whose house, and do your best to stick to the plan. Also, if there’s compensation involved, decide on the amount in advance. Is the grandparent expected to do any chores during the day? Make sure everyone agrees. Establish routines. Work together to create a rough schedule for the children’s day, including naptimes and meals. This is a good opportunity for mom or dad to fold in more detailed requests – for instance, if there are certain foods they do or do not want the child to eat. Don’t be critical. Remember you’re on the same team. Instead of a parent saying, “My daughter doesn’t go to bed because you’re

Rosa Feddersen looks at a family calendar with her 15-month-old granddaughter Nora Thiel in Feddersen’s home near Middletown, Pa. Feddersen and her husband bought their dream retirement home on a lake in Oklahoma City five years ago. But when they learned their first grandchild was on the way in 2009, their agenda changed. getting her overexcited after dinner,” try phrasing it without accusation: “Let’s run through the schedule and see what we can do so she’ll be calmer at night.” This advice applies to grandparents, too. If you notice the parents doing something ineffective, instead of correcting them, try offering gentle suggestions, such as, “When you were a kid, we did it this way and it seemed to work.” Don’t obsess over consistency. While it’s important for an individual caregiver to be consistent, it’s fine if mom and grandma don’t have exactly the same rules. Kids learn that different things are expected of them in different contexts. (Even with mom and dad, they’ve already figured out what they can get away with when each parent is in charge.) Learning how
to behave in diverse environments will help them when they start school. Relinquish some control. This goes for both parents and grandparents. As a grandparent, it’s natural to feel defensive when your own offspring second-guess your childrearing skills. Just remember that scientific research is always evolving and today’s parents have access to knowledge you might not have had. That said, for many parents, it’s tempting to micromanage, but don’t expect grandparents to report everything that happens during the day. Trust that as long as kids are loved and kept safe, they will be OK. Schedule regular check-ins. Plan to sit down once every few months to discuss how things are going. In the chaos of drop-off and pick-
up, there won’t be much time to compare notes or share concerns. During these check-in sessions, be honest about what’s working for you and make any necessary adjustments. For Feddersen, when the hours spent babysitting got to be too much, the family decided to send the toddler to a daycare center a couple of days a week. Now grandma has some free time to sleep in and get her nails done, and granddaughter is learning valuable socialization skills. Feddersen has declared that her nanny stint will be up when her daughter’s fellowship ends. But she says she wouldn’t trade the time she’s spent with Nora. “We took a three-year detour to help out, but I really think it’s given her a good start in life,” she says. December 2011 | 15
Living Arrangements New Health Center Construction On Schedule When the new health center of Sunrise Retirement Community opens in summer, it will feature all private rooms for seniors needing assisted living memory care, assisted living and skilled care. It will also offer Medicare outpatient therapy, a community life center and gardens, and connect to the existing Bernstein and Sunlight Centers. Construction is on schedule for the health center located directly across from The Pointe at Sunrise, the new independent senior community on the Sunrise campus. All resident rooms will have individual heating and cooling controls and private baths with showers for resident independence and privacy, according to Bev Zenor, executive director. Each neighborhood will have a spa room and be wired for the internet. “People want private rooms and more comfort today,” she says. “Our new health center will be a state-of-the-art facility with amenities we don't currently enjoy." 16 | Prime | www.siouxlandprime.com
The Health Center will replace the 50-year-old, red brick building, known to many as the “manor.” The assisted living neighborhood in the new health center represents a new level of care at the 50-year-old senior community. The area will offer 12 apartments to meet a growing need in Siouxland. A pioneer in memory care, Sunrise cares for persons with higher levels of Alzheimer’s at the Bernstein and Sunlight Centers. The two centers feature an open concept of private rooms around a spacious common area, which is suited to the needs of residents with dementia. The residents benefit from memory therapy, music therapy and other special activities. For more information on the new health center at Sunrise or its other services, call 276-3821, ext 3144.

After being released from a hospital or while under doctors' care for an illness or condition that does not require hospitalization, some patients require care beyond what their family is able to provide. Home health care is an option that allows such patients to remain at home, rather than going to a personal care or nursing home. Home health care involves providing medical and personal care for a person at home. It can involve many types of care, including checking vital signs, changing dressings, administering dialysis or oxygen and performing rehabilitation exercises. Types of Professionals A number of types of professionals work in home health care, including
registered nurses, personal care aides who help with bathing and dressing, companions who assist with meal preparation or accompany patients to medical appointments and speech, respiratory, occupational and physical therapists. Some patients see more than one type of professional throughout their home health care. Features Many people rely upon home health care agencies to screen, select and place workers to care for them in their home. Others hire health care workers directly or receive free services through community organizations, charities and hospices.

Choosing housing that will work for you what ever your needs! You are 80 years old and live alone. Your eyes are failing and housekeeping is becoming a more difficult task. The home repairs are getting more expensive every year. You ask yourself how much longer can I manage on my own? Choosing housing or residential care for seniors can be a difficult task. No matter what the needs become we are seeing many forms of help for seniors when it comes to living arrangements. Seniors may need help with cooking, bathing, using the facilities, medical care, transportation or just companionship. Seniors and their caregivers work together to find that just right accommodation. You can find the alternatives are endless: Choosing from Continuing-Care Retirement Communities, Independent Living, Assisted Living Facilities, Nursing Facilities, Long Term Care and more. The Department of Housing and Urban Development as well as the AARP are both good resources
when you first get started considering living alternatives. When choosing what type of living arrangements are right for you or your loved one here are a few tips to consider: • Care for special needs • Custodial Care • Medical Care • Cost • Privacy • Independence • Needs Assessment • Location • Payment Options You will need to consider a needs assessment first for yourself or loved one before deciding on the type of care to consider. This assessment can be a short- term or a long-term process. It can also be re-evaluated as needed by a doctor or someone in the field that will guide you to the exact living arrangement that is ideal for you or your loved one. You can even set up a care planner, which like any other planner, is a tool for making appropriate decisions. December 2011 | 17
What type of Senior Housing is available? • Apartment style living can consist of many things from changing light bulbs, to fixing things depending on what type of services your agreement consists of. Many of the apartments are now looking at adding small fees to the rent to include incidentals such as light bulb changing etc. Seniors only apartments are age-restricted apartments, usually reserved for 55 or 62 plus residents. The apartments follow HUD Regulations, which allow for such “Age Discrimination”. If restrictions are 55 plus at least one resident must be 55 and must have no more than 20% of all residents under the age of 55. If it is a 62 plus resident community the residents must be all 62 and over. Exceptions are made by HUD regulations for renters who are under the minimum age, if they are handicapped. Many seniors have rented all of their lives others have
sold a home and moved to an apartment. Sometimes financial considerations are what determines a rental community is the next step. Sometimes the maintenance of a home is the factor that the seniors are using to consider alternative living arrangements. It could also be a death or relocation to an area where a family member can lend emotional or physical support. You could also consider becoming a renter because of life changing circumstances. Here are some things to consider when looking for an apartment: Parking convenience, Lighting and security, storage, stairs, Transportation, safety within the apartment, location, services within and nearby, and quality of Management. Many will allow a tour ask to see several apartments to get a good feel for maintenance. You will also want to consider (if you are eligible for rental assistance) asking if they will accept the rent vouchers.
• Independent Living is designed for seniors who are able to live on their own yet prefer The security and convenience offered by community living. Most independent living communities offer daily social and recreational activities. You will find they provide Amenities like meals, housekeeping, laundry and scheduled transportation. Although a community such as this offers services that will allow seniors to remain independent they do not provide assistance with daily living requirements such as bathing or medications. Some independent communities can offer on-site home care services with an outside home health care agency. Some do require a “Buy-in” as a part of their agreement but Medicare or Medicaid does not cover Independent Living. • Assisted Living is a style of living arrangement in which personal care such as meals, housekeeping, transportation, and assistance with
activities of daily living are available as needed to people who still live on their own. In most cases, the “Assisted Living” residents pay a regular monthly payment. You can also expect additional on top of the rental fee for additional services you receive. Many will have free independent facilities close to or integrated housing complexes. Most residences consist of single or semi-private rooms or apartments with private bathrooms. They offer group dining areas and most facilities provide residents access to cooking areas. Rooms or suites usually will be furnished with the resident’s personal belongings. Many services can be provided for the residents of an Assisted Living Community. These styles of facilities usually cater to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other related memory disorders

Assisted living residences or assisted living facilities (ALFs) provide supervision or assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs); coordination of services by outside health care providers; and monitoring of resident activities to help to ensure their health, safety, and well-being. Assistance may include the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services provided by a trained staff person. Assisted living as it exists today emerged in the 1990s as an eldercare alternative
on the continuum of care for people, normally seniors, for whom Independent living is no longer appropriate but who do not need the 24-hour medical care provided by a nursing home. Assisted living is a philosophy of care and services promoting independence and dignity. Independent living provides services such as meals, housekeeping, laundry, activities, transportation however does not include any care. A nursing home, convalescent home, Skilled Nursing Unit (SNU), care home or rest home provides a type of care of residents: it is a place of residence for people who require constant nursing care and have significant deficiencies with activities of daily living. Residents include the elderly and younger adults with physical or mental disabilities. Eligible adults 18 or older can stay in a skilled nursing facility to receive physical, occupational, and other rehabilitative therapies following an accident or illness.

Safeguarding a Home for an Elderly Relative Since the economy began to slip, a notable and often newsworthy trend reported on across the country was the growing number of “boomerang” kids. After a brief period living on their own, boomerang kids return to live with their parents, mimicking an actual boomerang that returns to where it started after a brief period away. While boomerang kids might get the most publicity, another trend has also been steadily growing. According to the Pew Research Center, 20 percent of individuals age 65 and older lived in a multigenerational household in 2008. That marked a 3 percent increase from 1990. While there’s no single reason why more and more elderly residents are moving in with their adult children, the stillstruggling economy has likely played a significant role. Elderly men and women who lost retirement savings as the market tumbled can no longer afford the costly expense of an assisted living facility, causing many of those people to move back in with their children. For adult children welcoming a parent or an in-law into their home, a common priority is to ensure the home is safe for an elderly resident. Some safety measures might be easier to plan than others, but the following guidelines should help adults prepare their homes for the arrival of an elderly housemate. Reduce Risk of Injury in the Bathroom Perhaps no room can be more
difficult or seniors to navigate than the bathroom. Wet tiled floors can greatly increase the risk of falling, so men and women should make sure to have bathroom rugs that are slip-resistant. Slip-resistant rugs typically have a rubber bottom and won’t move even if the floor is wet. Another step to secure the bathroom is to install grab bars on the walls, including in the bathtub and next to the toilet. Also, make sure the towel bars are secure, as seniors might grab onto towel bars if they feel they are about to fall or need to regain their balance. As for the bathtub, be sure to place a non-skid mat or strips on the standing area. This can help secure arguably the riskiest part of a home not just for elderly residents but all inhabitants of a home. According to the National Safety Council, most falls in the home occur in the bathroom. Securing a slippery tub with non-skid mats or strips can greatly reduce the risk of a fall. Keep the Home Illuminated Understandably, many homeowners look to save money around the house, and turning off the lights at night is both common and financially savvy. However, when a home has an elderly resident, it’s best to ensure the home is at least partially illuminated. Nightlights should be used in hallways and along the staircase as well as in the bathroom and the kitchen. Elderly residents likely won’t be familiar with where the light switches are, at least not immediately. So keep the house at
least partially illuminated overnight in case a senior housemate must wake up to use the restroom or get a glass of water in the middle of the night. Clear Out the Clutter A cluttered home is a fire hazard regardless of whom is living inside. However, a cluttered home is also a considerable safety risk for seniors. When preparing a home for an elderly resident, be sure the bedroom is not overcrowded. Make certain there is a clear path in which elderly residents can walk around the bed. Clutter can also collect in the living room. Ideally, elderly residents should have a clear path on which to walk from room to room. Make sure cords from the entertainment system
are bundled and not lying open in the floor. In addition, magazine or newspaper baskets should be moved away from where residents will be walking. Clutter can also collect outside the home, particularly in homes with young children. Explain to kids that their toys need to be put away and kept off of walkways to help Grandma and Grandpa avoid injury. Homeowners who love to work around the house should also clean their work areas thoroughly and put everything away before calling it a day. The above are just a few of the many steps homeowners can take to make their homes safer for elderly guests.

Learning to Live On a Fixed Income Difficult financial times have forced many people young and old to alter their lifestyles in order to stay afloat financially. Though unemployment has garnered most of the headlines as the economy has struggled the last several years, it’s not just men and women of working age who have felt the pinch. In a 2010 study from the University of Michigan Law School, researchers found that people age 65 and older are the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population seeking bankruptcy protection. While there’s no single culprit for the rise in bankruptcy filings among seniors, the state of Florida could offer valuable insight as to why the nation’s older citizens are increasingly filing for bankruptcy. Many retirees call Florida home, and in the past such retirees could tap into their home equity whenever they began to struggle financially. However, like most of the country,
Florida’s housing market is depressed, making it less viable for seniors to tap into their home equity to solve their financial problems. In fact, according to a study by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, bankruptcy filings increased by 118 percent in states where the home price index decreased. For many seniors fearful of financial struggles, living on a fixed income can be a helpful way of ensuring their future does not involve filing for bankruptcy. Though living on a fixed income is a definite challenge and certainly offers no guarantee that bankruptcy can be avoided, it does provide a framework seniors can rely on to keep their heads above water during difficult economic times. * Make an honest assessment. Living on a fixed income involves being honest with yourself and

Income continued from page 22
admitting what your resources truly are. Write down any sources of income, including Social Security payments, pension payouts, investments, etc. Then write down how much money you have in savings or print out a statement of all savings accounts. Once you have an accurate figure of both income and savings, write down all your monthly expenses, including all expenses, no matter how minute they may seem. From here you can determine just how much you can spend each month. • Prioritize spending habits. Some expenses, including medications and monthly utility bills, will always remain a top priority. However, men and women who must begin living on a fixed income need to prioritize how they spend their discretionary funds. For instance, a membership at the local country club can cost several thousands of dollars per year, whereas the local public golf course only charges players each time they play. While the country club might have a better course, it could be more prudent to choose the public course and save the cost of a private membership instead. • Find it for free. Men and women pay for many services each month that they could very well find for free. For example, in addition to books, many local libraries now allow members to check out CDs and DVDs at no cost. The same also goes for magazines. Instead of paying a monthly subscription cost, visit the local library and read the magazines there for free. If the local library does not have your favorite periodical, the content could very well be available for free online. • Expect the unexpected. One of the worst things that can happen to a person on a fixed income is to encounter an unexpected cost. This can include an unforeseen hospital visit, a costly auto repair or even inflation that wasn’t factored into your initial fixed income budget. Men and women on fixed incomes should expect such emergencies and save accordingly each month. Saving money should never go out of style, and those on fixed incomes should still attempt to save money each month. Coming in under budget and making the most of it can make the difference between capably handling an emergency or being forced to consider unattractive alternatives such as filing for bankruptcy.
