That objective is considered too ambitious by many auto industry executives and experts who believe self-driving cars are a decade or more away from becoming a reality. In the meantime, plenty of other technology should be widely available for older drivers. Earlier this year, the auto industry vowed to make automated emergency brakes a standard feature by September 2022, but it won’t be that long before the technology is widely available. Toyota plans to build it into most models, including its Lexus brand, by the end of next year.

Other technology expected to assist older drivers includes automated parking, and adaptive headlights that swivel in the same direction as the steering wheel and adjust the beams’ intensity depending on driving conditions and oncoming traffic. Robotic systems that temporarily assist with highway driving already are available, most notably in Tesla Motors’ high end Model S. The electric-car maker released its Autopilot feature last fall, prompting some Model S owners to entrust more of the driving to the robot than Tesla recommends while the system is still in testing mode. For instance, some drivers have posted pictures of themselves reading a newspaper or book with the Model S on

Autopilot, or even sitting in the back seat. In May, an Ohio man was killed when a Model S in Autopilot mode crashed into the side of a tractor-trailer while traveling 9 mph above the speed limit on a highway near Gainesville, Florida. Federal investigators are looking into the cause. Highly publicized incidents like that may make it more difficult to persuade older drivers to trust the technology coming to their cars. Older drivers also will need help understanding its benefits and how to use it, says Dale Rife, senior adviser to AARP. To help, AARP is planning to put more focus on car technology in its 37-year-old driver safety programs. “This evolution is going to accelerate in the next few years,” Rife predicts, “but people fear what they don’t understand. And if they don’t understand it, they will just avoid it.”

Hall Monument Hall Monument Company has been located in Sioux City, Iowa since 1926. Our office offers a large indoor showroom displaying more than seventy-five memorials. Hall Monument has a new manager, his name is Verne Climer. Verne and Shirley Peters are here to assist you and your family with a memorial solution to meet your needs. Hall Monument Company designs and
produces memorials, granite and bronze, for all cemeteries in the tri-state area. Through the ages the creation of a memorial has been one of the most important forms of remembrance. 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 than when describing the “personalization” of a monument. Did the person being memorialized have a special love in their life, hobby, maybe a favorite poem? If the memorial is for yourself, is there a certain way you wish to be remembered? Modern technology allows the memorialist through shape, texture, image and inscription to create a personalized and unique monument. Modern technology also allows a monument to be designed in literally any
shape that you can envision. Whether it is freeform, entwined hearts, or a special object, your choice in shape and design is limitless. Remember, monument designs can be classic or contemporary. The choice is yours to make. Hall Monument uses techniques such as sandblasting, shape carving, laser and hand etching to achieve the design that best reflects your individual and personal preferences.

Christmas Past, with non-plastic ornaments It’s Christmas time once again and I’ve been digging out all the decorations getting ready for the big day. I went down in the basement and found all the stuff where they’ve been languishing for a year, pulled out the plastic tree from its cardboard box, dug out the plastic ornaments, the plastic Nativity set and the plastic star to go on top of the plastic tree. Then I unpacked my talking Christmas Terry Turner tree and dancing email@example.com Santa, which of course are also plastic, and the whole collection was marked, “Made in China.” As I looked at that pitiful collection of synthetic decorations, I thought back to years ago when Christmas wasn’t nearly as artificial in so many ways as it is today. We didn’t buy a lot of decorations back then. We made them. Just before Christmas break every year we’d make decorations and Christmas cards in school. One of my favorites was the colorful chains made out of construction paper. I’d carefully cut strips of construction paper and glue the ends together with white glue to form a chain. I remember the kid next to me always ate some of that white glue. I never developed a taste for it myself. We also made ornaments to hang on the tree and one year we even made a star to go on top. But not all our decorations were made at school. We made some at home too. Sometimes I made more construc
tion paper chains but we always had other chains. These were made of popcorn. My mother would melt a couple of large spoonfuls of lard in her cast iron skillet, then carefully place one kernel of corn in the center of the pan and wait for it to pop. It would pop out of the skillet and I’d try to catch it. She’d cover the bottom of the pan with popcorn and then shake it to keep it from burning. I loved it when she put in too much corn and the lid would rise above the rim of the skillet. Once the popcorn was made, my brother and I would each get a bowl, a needle and thread, and we’d proceed to make strings of popcorn to hang on the tree. I think we probably ate more popcorn than we strung on the tree, but somehow we managed to get some popcorn strings hung on the tree. Once the tree was decorated there was one final item to add. Our mother would dig out the icicles that were saved from the previous Christmas. These were aluminum foil cut in very thin strips. My brother, sister and I draped the icicles on the tree, and then our dad topped the tree with a giant star. All was ready. Dad would then plug in the lights and we all stood back in awe of the beautiful sight. Those simpler days when we made our own decorations are long gone as is the simpler celebration of Christmas. But maybe we can bring back some of that true Christmas spirit by getting rid of all those plastic decorations and string some popcorn. At least it’s worth a try.

John Deere Historic Site tells story of plow inventor, businessman
BY TERRY TURNER
GRAND DETOUR, Ill. – The worldwide John Deere empire began in a simple blacksmith shop in the little town of Grand Detour. That historic site has been preserved and is now a museum telling the amazing story of one man and an idea for a

better plow. John Deere was born in Rutland, Vermont, on Feb. 7, 1804. When John was just 4 years old, his father left the family and went to England hoping for a better life. He was never heard from again. John and his five siblings were raised by their mother. John developed an early
interest in working with his hands and at 17 he became a blacksmith’s apprentice. Just four years later he set up his first blacksmith shop and for the next 12 years plied his trade in various towns around Vermont. But Deere fell on hard times and closed his shop. He was deeply in debt and with four children and
another on the way, he didn’t know how he would support his growing family. So like his father he left his family in search of a better life. In 1836 his friend Leonard Andrus told him the town of Grand Detour, Illinois, was growing rapidly, and the nearest blacksmith was 40 miles away. Deere moved to
Grand Detour and was busy right from the start. Kathy, a tour guide at the John Deere Historic Site, said Deere saw a problem with the plows being used by local farmers and found a solution. “The plows they were using were made in the East. The plows were made of cast iron and the soil here would stick
to the plows,” said Kathy. She said Deere knew there had to be a better way and set out to find it. In the East, the soil is light and sandy. Because the thick, black prairie soil of Illinois stuck to the plow blade, farmers had to stop every few yards and scrape the blade clean, making for slow and frustrating work. “John Deere was visiting a friend at his sawmill and noticed an old saw blade,” said Kathy. “He wondered if that steel blade would make a good plow.” Deere took the blade, removed the teeth, polished it and shaped it into a plow. It worked and he gave his new design to a local farmer to try. The farmer loved it, and in 1840 Deere sold 40 plows. Farmers said the John Deere plow cut so smoothly through the soil it made a “singing sound.” They dubbed the new implement the “singing plow.” After this initial success, Deere teamed with friend Leonard Andrus and formed the company Andrus and Deere. By 1846 production soared to 1,000. In order to be closer to river power for his factory, Deere moved to Moline, Illinois, in 1848 and took on new partners to form John Deere and Company. The business continued to succeed and grow, but Deere wanted to own the company, and in the late 1850s he did. The John Deere Company then began to branch out into making other types of farm equipment. When most people today think of John Deere they think of tractors, but Kathy said Deere never saw one. “John Deere died before the company started making tractors.” In 1963 an archaeological team excavated the original site where John Deere forged his first self-cleaning plow. The site has been carefully documented and pre

served so visitors can see where Deere had his first blacksmith shop. The archaeologists found the footings for the buildings and marked off the area. A building was constructed over the site to preserve it, and a museum in the building houses the many artifacts that were uncovered during the excavation. Also on the grounds of the site is an operating blacksmith shop where demonstrations of the art of blacksmithing are conducted daily. Eric, a blacksmith at the John Deere Historic Site, said that in days gone by the blacksmith was an important part of rural life. “The blacksmith not only fixed things like wagon wheels but he also made a lot of what fami-
