Which Medicare Part D Plan is the Right Plan for You?

M

edicare’s Open Enrollment Period, during which people with Medicare can make unrestricted changes to their coverage, takes place every year from October 15 to December 7. Whether you’re approaching age 65 or already enrolled in Medicare, you should take advantage of this opportunity to review your options and see whether you are enrolled in the most cost-effective plan for your needs. Most plans change their costs and benefits every year, and some even decide not to participate in Medicare for the coming year. Making a careful comparison between the plan you have now and options available to you in 2021 is the only way to see if there is a better choice for you. In most cases, this will probably be your only chance to change your health and/or drug coverage for the next year. When reviewing your Medicare coverage, know that you will have many options to choose from. Typically, it’s beneficial to have choices, but you might find yourself overwhelmed. For example, in 2021, Medicare beneficiaries in Oklahoma will be able to select from 30 prescription drug plans, as well as many Advantage health plans available throughout the state. Many beneficiaries find it frustrating and difficult to compare plans due to the volume of information they receive in the mail and through the media. As a result, they often stay with the same plan, even if it is not the best option for them. Research shows that a large majority of people with Medicare could have saved hundreds of dollars last year by reviewing their prescription drug coverage. In fact, during last year’s enrollment period, over two-thirds of those who came to LIFE Senior

Services for help reviewing their drug coverage options either enrolled in Part D for the first time or switched plans for the next year, saving an average of $1,529 per person. Whether you are currently on Medicare or becoming eligible for Medicare in 2021, this annual Medicare Part D Guide, published by LIFE Senior Services, provides up-to-date information about the prescription drug plans available in 2021, as well as the Advantage health plans being offered in Tulsa County. LIFE Senior Services is a name thousands of seniors and their families have trusted for more than 46 years. Since 2004, LIFE has provided education and one-on-one assistance to thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, helping them compare Medicare Part D plans and enroll in the one that best fits their individual needs. As a partner agency of the Oklahoma Insurance Department, the Medicare Assistance Program at LIFE provides trusted services in northeast Oklahoma to Medicare beneficiaries, their representatives and those soon to be eligible for Medicare. As always, you can count on LIFE and LIFE’s Vintage Newsmagazine to bring you timely, unbiased information and assistance on Medicare Part D. For more information or to schedule an appointment to review your options, call the Medicare Assistance Program at LIFE Senior Services at (918) 664-9000, ext. 1189 or toll-free at (866) 664-9009. We’re here to help!

LETTER FROM EILEEN Dear Vintage Reader: When my son was very small, he called Thanksgiving “that other holiday.” Thanksgiving was wedged between the treatfilled celebration of Halloween and the lights and gifts of Christmas. In his young eyes, it was a vegetable-filled snoozefest. He likes it a bit better now, but I think that many folks see Thanksgiving as little more than a speed bump on the road to December festivities.

Eileen Bradshaw

President and CEO LIFE Senior Services, LIFE PACE, Vintage Housing eileen.bradshaw@LIFEseniorservices.org

(918) 664-9000 www.LIFEseniorservices.org

Not me. I have always loved Thanksgiving. As a child, I relished my kindergartencostumed recreation of the 1621 meal. I love the fact that it was made an official holiday by Abraham Lincoln in 1863, to celebrate the victory at Gettysburg. I have watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade every year of my life, often to the chagrin of my children. I love gathering as much of my family around me as I can and cooking for them. I once made gravy so bad that my little sister sculpted it into a turkey-shaped centerpiece!

The pandemic has changed our world and routines in ways we could never have anticipated. Our Thanksgiving tables may look different this year: we may have lost loved ones or perhaps have family who simply can’t travel during the pandemic to join us. At a time when we crave tradition and nostalgia, we may have to forge new paths. It can be hard to focus on what we are thankful for, but we must. There is a young man who releases videos under the name Kid President. He is funny and wise beyond his years. He has a great video entitled “25 reasons to be to be grateful.” You can Google that title and watch the whole thing. He cites “pants” and “bubble wrap” on his list of good things. He mentions happiness, for obvious reasons, but he also says we should be grateful for sadness. He says “it helps you know what you care about.”

The video is a heartwarming reminder of all of the reasons we have to be grateful, I love the fact that all religions can celebrate from the silly to the sublime. I will be Thanksgiving together. It is one day on which very intentional in my gratitude this year, especially for those I cherish. Please know we all pause and show mindful appreciation that I am grateful for you who read the for the good things and good people in Vintage Newsmagazine. We are connected, our lives. We should do that each day, but I and that is something to appreciate! love the loud national call to gratitude. This year has been a challenge, to say the least. Probably none of us have had the year we had Gratefully, hoped or planned for in 2020. Eileen Bradshaw, President and CEO

Looking Back

President Harry Truman visited Tulsa as part of his whistle stop tour aboard the presidential train in 1948. He spent two days visiting 20 cities in Oklahoma and even extended his visit for a parade. This image shows President Truman giving a speech at Skelly Stadium to a crowd of 20,000.

President Richard Nixon visited Tulsa twice while in office. In 1971, he dedicated the Kerr-McClellan Waterway at the Tulsa Port of Catoosa. A year later he returned to speak to a crowd of 20,000 at the Tulsa airport. Pictured above is President Nixon at the airport with Dewey Bartlett in November 1972.

A group of Oklahomans visiting the White House poses with President Herbert Hoover (center) c. 1930. Included in the group are Tulsa Mayor Daniel Patton (Hoover’s right) and Representative and Mrs. Charles O'Connor.

This Month in History NOVEMBER 2, 1734:

Daniel Boone Was Born Frontiersman Daniel Boone was born to immigrant Quaker parents in what is now Berks County, Pennsylvania. Boone was one of the first U.S. folk heroes for his trailblazing expeditions and backwoods skills. He became famous internationally when an author included Boone in a book about the settlement of Kentucky. He founded the colony of Boonsborough but ended up losing his land in lawsuits and moving to Missouri.

NOVEMBER 7, 1944:

FDR Elected for Fourth Term President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected to an unprecedented fourth term in office. FDR was first elected in 1932 and saw the country through the Great Depression and much of World War II. He died of a stroke in April of 1945, seven months before the war ended. Congress later proposed a law limiting presidents to two terms, and the 22nd Amendment was passed in 1951, making it official.

NOVEMBER 13, 1982: Vietnam

NOVEMBER 22, 1718:

A black granite wall inscribed with the names of the 57,939 Americans who died in the Vietnam War was dedicated in Washington, D.C. The memorial was designed by Maya Lin, a Yale student. The Wall was controversial for its unconventional design but was to become one of the most visited memorials in the nation’s capitol. Visitors can locate the names of the fallen and often leave mementos.

Captain Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard the Pirate, was killed off the coast of North Carolina. The Virginia lieutenant governor launched a raid on the pirate, fearing that his state would fall victim to Blackbeard’s thievery. The pirate met his end on the deck of a British warship. A book published several years later gave rise to the Blackbeard legend of a bloodthirsty warrior.

NOVEMBER 20, 1947:

NOVEMBER 26, 1922:

Princess Elizabeth, heir presumptive to the British throne, married Philip Mountbatten at Westminster Abbey. There were 2,000 guests, and the ceremony was recorded and broadcast by BBC Radio to 200 million others worldwide. The official wedding cake was 9 feet high in four tiers made with ingredients from all around the world. The cake was cut using the groom’s Mountbatten sword, a wedding present from the King.

British archaeologist Howard Carter and his financial backer George Herbert (Lord Carnarvon) first entered the interior chambers of King Tutankhamen’s burial chamber after uncovering steps hidden in debris at a nearby tomb in the Valley of the Kings. King Tut died at 18, and his tomb contained several thousand objects in four rooms, including a coffin of solid gold. Carter searched for the tomb for five years.

Family Gathering Safety Tips If you decide to have people over for Thanksgiving, the CDC recommends the following:  emind people to stay R home if they may have been exposed to COVID-19 in the last two weeks or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS New CDC Guidelines for 2020

 hen guests arrive, forget W the hugs and elbow bumps – try to practice your best parade wave.

BY DEE DUREN, MANAGING EDITOR

Has there ever been a year with more challenges for older adults and their caregivers than 2020? Though the traditional holiday spirit may proclaim “the more, the merrier,” the pandemic has forced most of us to rethink that inclusive ideal. Most families can look back at a Thanksgiving or Christmas and recall at least one year when an outof-town guest brought an unwelcome stomach bug or cold along to the party. The hugs, the platters of shared food, holding hands around the dinner table – all these normal activities have to be viewed through a new lens in 2020. Remember that the current situation isn’t likely to last forever. Sacrificing a year of holiday events – or changing the way you celebrate – may be a lifesaving act. Difficulties can arise if family members have other views on what is safe behavior during the pandemic. Consider communicating the safety guidelines recommended by the CDC with family before the holidays arrive.

Higher Risk Activities to Avoid

 ost your gathering outdoors H if possible. If that can’t be done, make sure windows are open or the space is wellventilated.

The Centers for Disease Control notes that holidays are a time when many families travel long distances to celebrate together. “Travel increases the chance of getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19,” the CDC website states. “Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others.” THE CDC'S RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A “LOW RISK” THANKSGIVING Having a small dinner with only people who live in your household Preparing traditional family recipes for family and neighbors, especially those at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, and delivering them in a way that doesn’t involve contact with others Having a virtual dinner and sharing recipes with friends and family Shopping online rather than in person on the day after Thanksgiving Watch sporting events, parades and movies from home

 rrange tables and chairs to A allow for social distancing, and sit people from the same households in groups together. Plan activities where social distancing can be maintained. Try a walk through the neighborhood or play a noncontact game like Charades.  ear masks, and ensure W masks are available for guests.  rovide hand sanitizer at P several locations as well as handwashing areas.  eplace hand towels with R single-use guest napkins or paper towels. Encourage people to bring their own food and drinks.  esignate one person to D serve food if you use platters.  witch to single-use items like S salad dressing packets and other condiments.

Going shopping in crowded stores just before, on or after Thanksgiving

Being a spectator or taking part in a crowded event like a parade

Using drugs or alcohol that can cloud judgment and lead to risky choices

Attending large indoor gatherings with people from outside your household

Understanding Medicare Supplement Insurance and the Changes for 2021

LIFE's Medicare Assistance Program

BY CHANNING RUTHERFORD, MEDICARE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM SUPERVISOR Original Medicare pays for much, but not all, of the cost for covered health care services and supplies. Medicare Supplement Insurance policies, sold by private companies, can help pay some of the remaining health care costs, like copayments, coinsurance and deductibles. Medicare Supplement Insurance policies are also called Medigap policies. Every Medigap policy must follow federal and state laws designed to protect the beneficiary and must be clearly identified as “Medicare Supplement Insurance.” Insurance companies can sell you only a “standardized” policy identified in most states by letters A through D, F, G, and K through N.

FACTS ABOUT MEDIGAP POLICIES  ou must have Part A and Part Y B to sign up for a Medigap policy.  ou pay the private insurance Y company a monthly premium for your Medigap policy in addition to your monthly Part B premium that you pay to Medicare.  Medigap policy only covers A one person. Spouses must buy separate policies. I t’s important to compare Medigap policies since the costs can vary between insurance companies for exactly the same coverage, and may go up as you get older.  lans C and F are not available P to people who are newly eligible for Medicare on or after January 1, 2020. If you already have either of these two plans (or the high deductible version of Plan F) or are covered by one of these plans before January 1, 2020, you’ll be able to keep your plan. If you were eligible for Medicare before January 1, 2020, but not yet enrolled, you may be able to buy one of these plans.

12

WHEN TO PURCHASE A MEDIGAP POLICY  e best time to buy a Medigap policy is Th during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period. This 6-month period begins on the first day of the month in which you’re 65 or older and enrolled in Part B. After this enrollment period, you may not be able to buy a Medigap policy or it may cost more. I f you delay enrolling in Part B because you have group health coverage based on your (or your spouse’s) current employment, your Medigap Open Enrollment Period won’t start until you sign up for Part B.  ederal law generally doesn’t require F insurance companies to sell Medigap policies to people under 65. However, some states require Medigap insurance companies to sell Medigap policies to people under 65. Fortunately, in Oklahoma, the state law requires all companies that sell Medicare supplement plans to 65 and over to sell at least a Plan A to those under age 65. If you’re able to buy one, it may cost more.

MEDIGAP POLICIES AND MEDICARE ADVANTAGE PLANS I f you join a Medicare Advantage Plan for the first time, and you aren’t happy with the plan, you have the right to buy a Medigap policy and a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan if you return to Original Medicare within 12 months of joining the Medicare Advantage Plan. I f you have a Medigap policy and join a Medicare Advantage Plan, you may want to drop your Medigap policy. Your Medigap policy can’t be used to pay your Medicare Advantage Plan copayments, deductibles, and premiums. If you want to cancel your Medigap policy, contact your insurance company. In most cases, if you drop your Medigap policy to join a Medicare Advantage Plan, you won’t be able to get it back. I f you have a Medicare Advantage Plan, it’s illegal for anyone to sell you a Medigap policy unless you’re switching back to Original Medicare. Source: www.medicare.gov

BY KAREN SZABO

In March 1789, the U.S. Constitution was officially enacted, and the office of the President of the United States was established. The following month, General George Washington was sworn in as the first commander in chief. Here are some interesting tidbits about a few of the people who have held the highest office in our land.

1st President of the United States April 30, 1789 – March 4, 1797

3rd President of the United States March 4, 1801 – March 4, 1809

16th President of the United States March 4, 1861 – April 14, 1865

• The country’s first president was born on February 11, 1731, according to the then-used Julian calendar. In 1752, Britain and all its colonies adopted the Gregorian calendar which moved his birthday one year and 11 days to February 22, 1732.

•Th  omas Jefferson collected fossils and had the bones of a mastodon sent to him at the White House where he attempted to build a skeleton in what is now known as the East Room.

•L  incoln was an accomplished wrestler as a young man. He was defeated only once in approximately 300 matches and earned an “Outstanding American” honor in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.

• Washington’s schooling ended after his father died when he was 11 years old. • At 16, Washington wanted to join the British Navy, but his mother refused to let him. Instead, he became a surveyor to the unexplored wilderness of the Virginia frontier in 1747. • His marriage to Martha was her second marriage and his first. They did not have any children of their own. • Washington did not want to be president. He wanted to retire to his farm at Mount Vernon. But when he was unanimously elected by the Electoral College, he reluctantly accepted.

"But lest some unlucky event should happen unfavorable to my reputation, I beg it may be remembered by every gentleman in the room that I this day declare with the utmost sincerity, I do not think myself equal to the command I am honored with." – George Washington 14

• When the original Library of Congress was attacked by British troops in 1814, all the books were burned. Jefferson offered his personal library of 6,487 books as a replacement. • He brought his love of French food and wine to America – along with foods like ice cream, macaroni and cheese and french fries. • It took him more than 40 years to complete his 33-room, four-story Monticello home. He also designed the iconic Rotunda at the University of Virginia, as well as the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond. • His tombstone does not mention his presidency. Instead, it reads: “Here was buried Thomas Jefferson, Author of the Declaration of Independence, of the Statute of Virginia for religious freedom and Father of the University of Virginia.”

"It is the great parent of science and of virtue: and that a nation will be great in both, always in proportion as it is free." – Thomas Jeffereson

LIFE’s Vintage Newsmagazine | November 2020

• He created the Secret Service hours before his assassination. On April 14, 1865, Lincoln signed legislation creating the U.S. Secret Service. That evening, he was shot at Ford’s Theatre. On the day he was shot, Lincoln told his bodyguard that he dreamt he would be assassinated. •L  incoln is the only president to have obtained a patent. After being aboard a steamboat that ran aground, he designed a method for keeping vessels afloat in shallow waters through the use of empty metal air chambers attached to their sides. He obtained Patent No. 6,469 for his design. • He often stored things like letters and documents in his signature tall stove-piped hat. • Th  e Lincoln Bedroom was not Lincoln’s bedroom. The current Lincoln Bedroom was his personal office where he met with Cabinet members and signed documents, including the Emancipation Proclamation.

"Folks are usually about as happy as they make up their minds up to be." – Abrahan Lincoln www.LIFEseniorservices.org

32nd President of the United States March 4, 1933 – April 12, 1945

39th President of the United States January 20, 1977 – January 20, 1981

41st President of the United States January 20, 1989 – January 20, 1993

• Franklin Roosevelt began collecting stamps around the age of 8. Stamps were a distraction when he was bedridden with polio and helped relieve the stress from the demands of his presidency.

• Jimmy Carter grew up without indoor plumbing and electricity, but he became a lifelong tennis player thanks to the dirt tennis court on his family’s farm.

•G  eorge H. W. Bush was named after his maternal grandfather, who was known as "Pop.” Bush was called "Poppy" as a tribute to his namesake. He was also known as “Have-Half ” – the result of his frequent kindness in giving away half his sandwich to others.

• FDR graduated from Harvard in only three years, but he struggled at Columbia Law School. He left Columbia in 1907 after passing his bar exam. He never received his degree and only practiced law for a few years before entering politics. • He and Eleanor Roosevelt chose March 17 as their wedding date because President Theodore Roosevelt would be in New York City for the St. Patrick's Day parade, and he'd agreed to walk his niece down the aisle. FDR and Teddy Roosevelt were fifth cousins. • Roosevelt was the victim of an assassination attempt in Miami in 1933. Giuseppe Zangara fired six rounds as FDR was giving a speech from the back of an open car. Zangara killed one person, injured four others – and missed Roosevelt. • He was the first president to travel on official business by airplane. On January 14, 1943, FDR flew to a World War II strategy meeting with Winston Churchill at Casablanca in North Africa – a 17,000-mile round trip.

"In these days of difficulty, we Americans everywhere must and shall choose the path of social justice...the path of faith, the path of hope, and the path of love toward our fellow man." – Franklin D. Roosevelt 16

• As president, he made it clear that he considered himself no more elevated in status than his voters. He sold the presidential yacht, carried his own briefcase and banned workers from playing “Hail to the Chief ” during appearances. • Carter was committed to renewable energy sources and had solar panels installed on White House grounds in 1979, decades before such a practice became commonplace. The panels were used to heat water on the property. • After decades of philanthropic work, including a long-standing association with Habitat for Humanity, Carter was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002. • Carter is now 96 years old and is the oldest living president in U.S. history. Carter and his wife, Roslyn, have been married 74 years – the longest marriage of any presidential couple.

•B  ush enlisted in the Navy the same day he graduated from high school, on his 18th birthday. He was the youngest pilot in the Navy when he received his wings. He flew 58 combat missions during World War II.

BY KAREN SZABO

Behind every great man, there is a great woman – and that’s certainly true for America’s first ladies, many of whom have played an important role in the history of our nation. Here are some fun and fascinating facts about a few of these outstanding women.

2nd First Lady of the United States March 4, 1797 – March 4, 1801

4th First Lady of the United States March 4, 1809 – March 4, 1817

9th First Lady of the United States March 4, 1889 – March 4, 1893

• John Adams’ wife Abigail was the first woman to serve as second lady, the second woman to serve as first lady, and also the first first lady to live in the White House – although these titles were not used at the time. She was also the mother of the sixth president, John Quincy Adams.

• Dolley Madison married James Madison in 1794 after losing her first husband and infant son to Yellow Fever.

• President Benjamin Harrison’s wife Caroline completed an extensive renovation of the White House, including the installation of electricity.

• A prominent hostess, she sponsored the first Inaugural Ball.

• S he was the first president wife to have a Christmas tree in the White House.

• She was the first president’s wife to formally associate herself with a public charity project, a home for orphaned girls.

•She started the tradition of the first lady choosing the official White House china pattern, designing a pattern featuring ears of corn and goldenrods.

• Abigail Adams exchanged over 1,100 letters with her husband that included eyewitness accounts of the vote for independence, President George Washington’s inauguration and countless other moments that helped shape the nation. • In arguably her most famous letter to John Adams, she asked that he “remember the ladies” when drafting the laws for their new country. “Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands,” she said. “Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could.”

• As the British set fire to Washington D.C. during the War of 1812, Dolley had the staff tear down velvet draperies and wrap them around the presidential china and silver, along with a portrait of President Washington. Dolley sent the items in a wagon to New York for safekeeping then she fled the city. Hours later, the White House burned.

• During the Revolutionary War, she melted down her precious pewter spoons into musket balls which she distributed to rebel forces. She also sheltered numerous patriot troops and Boston refugees in her home. • Though her father had owned slaves, she vehemently opposed slavery. In a 1774 letter to her husband, she sincerely wished “that there was not a slave in the province.” She also had a progressive attitude toward integration, teaching a young, free servant to read and write, and enrolling him in school. 18

Dolley Madison’s open robe style gown is made of silk satin and handembroidered with flowers, butterflies, dragonflies and phoenixes. It is typical of the style of the late 1810s.

•C  aroline raised funds for the Johns Hopkins University medical school on the condition that it admit women. • S he helped found the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution and served as its first president general. Caroline's gown was designed by Ghormley, Robes et Manteaux. The fabric was produced by the Logan Silk Company. Artist Mary Williamson designed the brocaded silk fabric in a pattern of bur oaks in tribute to the president's grandfather.

27th First Lady of the United States March 4, 1909 – March 4, 1913

32nd First Lady of the United States March 4, 1933 – April 12, 1945

35th First Lady of the United States January 20, 1961 – November 22, 1963

• William Howard Taft’s wife was the first first lady to own and drive a car, to ride in her husband’s inaugural parade, to support women's suffrage, to publish her memoirs, to smoke cigarettes and to successfully lobby for safety standards in federal workplaces.

• From a very young age, Anna Eleanor Roosevelt preferred her middle name and would usually introduce herself by it as she grew older. • When her husband was first elected president, female journalists had traditionally been excluded from serious media events. She was the first first lady to hold regular press conferences and hosted a series of ladies-only press conferences, which pressured papers into hiring more women reporters. •A  s first lady, Eleanor refused Secret Service protection. She learned to shoot and had her own pistol, which she frequently took with her on trips. • From 1935 to 1962, Eleanor wrote a newspaper column entitled “My Day,” featuring her musings on such topics as Prohibition, Pearl Harbor and Joseph McCarthy’s Communist witch hunt. A disciplined professional, she missed only a single week’s worth of material, following her husband’s death in 1945. •P  resident Harry S. Truman appointed Eleanor as a United Nations delegate in 1946. She became a driving force behind the U.N.’s Declaration of Human Rights, which over 50 member-states eventually worked together to compose.

•A  defining fashion trendsetter of the 1960s, her husband’s staff worried about Jacqueline’s obsession with French couture. Her father-inlaw introduced her to American-based designer Oleg Cassini who designed more than 300 of her iconic outfits.

• She was thoroughly involved in her husband's 1908 presidential campaign, advising him how to position himself, sometimes down to what words to use, so that he would be seen as supporting some of Theodore Roosevelt's popular policies yet also standing on his own. •After a visit to Japan in 1912, the mayor of Tokyo sent her 2,000 cherry tree saplings, which the first lady had planted all over the nation’s capital. She and the Japanese ambassador's wife planted the first two trees, which survive to this day. • Nellie began the tradition of first ladies donating their inaugural gown to the Smithsonian.

Helen Taft’s 1909 inaugural ball gown is made of white silk chiffon appliquéd with floral embroideries in metallic thread and trimmed with rhinestones and beads. It was made by the Frances Smith Company. 20

Eleanor Roosevelt’s slate-blue silk crepe evening gown was designed by Sally Milgrim for the 1933 Inaugural Ball. Embroidered with a leaf-and-flower design in gold thread, it featured detachable long sleeves.

•A  s first lady, she turned her eye for style toward the White House. She courted private donors and acquired pieces of historically significant furniture to restore the house with antiques. She won an Emmy Award for her televised tour of the renovated White House. •A  fter her husband’s assassination, she declined Lady Bird Johnson’s offer of a fresh outfit saying, “Oh no, I want them to see what they’ve done to Jack.” Her bloodstained pink suit is in the National Archives, but its matching pillbox hat was lost on the day of the assassination and has never been recovered. • S he was the first to refer to the Kennedy administration as “Camelot.” During an interview with Life Magazine after her husband’s death, she quoted a line from the musical Camelot’s title song, “Don’t let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief, shining moment, that was known as Camelot.” She added, “There will be great presidents again, but there will never be another Camelot.” Jackie wore this offwhite sleeveless silk chiffon gown encrusted with brilliants and embroidered with silver thread as her Inagural Ball gown. It was designed and created by Ethel Frankau of Bergdorf Custom Salon, who worked from the first lady's sketches and suggestions. www.LIFEseniorservices.org


What is Kyphoplasty?

HISTORY OF THE INAUGURAL BALL BY DEE DUREN, MANAGING EDITOR

Inauguration Day is when the U.S. president-elect and vice president-elect are sworn in and officially take office. The present-day inauguration has three feature events: the oath of office or swearing-in, the inaugural parade and the inaugural ball. Ceremonies have expanded significantly around the event since the first military display greeted George Washington when he arrived in New York in 1789. Thomas Jefferson was first to be sworn in as president in Washington, D.C., the nation’s permanent capital. The first unofficial “inaugural parade” took place when Jefferson took his second oath of office and rode back to the President’s House on horseback. The first official inaugural ball took place on March 4, 1809, for President James Madison and his wife, Dolley. A group of young men called the Washington Dancing Assembly organized the event to honor them. Firsthand accounts say about 400 guests attended the affair which was held at a Capitol Hill hotel. Inaugural balls in the late 1800s were held in large government buildings like the Patent Office (Abraham Lincoln, 1865) and Treasury Building (Ulysses S. Grant, 1869). Other presidents danced in temporary structures built for the occasion, including Grant’s second inauguration in 1873 where the floor was constructed separately from the rest of the building so lively dancing wouldn’t shake the walls. Eventually, the demand to attend the inaugural ball became so great that multiple balls were held throughout the city. The most popular is called the American Ball and includes musical acts and celebrities. President Bill Clinton is said to hold the record with 14 inaugural balls in celebration of his second presidency in 1997. President Barack Obama had 10 official balls in 2009 but only two in 2013.   It wasn’t always smooth sailing during the inaugural celebrations. President Woodrow Wilson disapproved of dancing and canceled all festivities, including the ball. That temporary building created for President Grant was so cold that newspaper reports said live canaries used in decorations refused to sing. At President Richard Nixon’s 1973 inaugural ball, a chicken that was part of a farm exhibit at the National Museum of History and Technology escaped the exhibit and crashed the party – only to be captured by a Smithsonian wildlife conservationist. Who foots the bill for inaugural balls? The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) is a privately funded organization created after the election. Each PIC has its own rules about accepting donations, but they generally come from private and corporate donors. Obama’s first inauguration accepted a then-record $53 million in private donations. Most recently, President Donald Trump’s PIC accepted nearly $107 million. Sources: www.whitehousehistory.org, the Smithsonian Institution Archives.   www.LIFEseniorservices.org

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that quickly repairs vertebral compression fractures (VCF) and restores structural integrity to broken vertebral bone. Kyphoplasty is an outpatient procedure that uses a cavity creation device (usually a balloon) to create a space in the broken vertebra which is then filled with a special bone cement to stabilize the fracture and reduce pain.

How does Kyphoplasty help?

The goal of kyphoplasty is to restore the broken vertebra to a more normal height and to fix the pain caused by the fracture. When a vertebral fracture occurs, it most commonly presents as an acute worsening of chronic lower back pain. Many times the patient’s chronic back pain is getting worse, but it’s actually due to a recent fracture. Studies have shown that up to 85% of fractures are missed even in advanced imaging reports. According to the medical literature, the most accurate way to detect a painful fracture is by physical percussion exam. Many of our patients experience immediate pain relief following kyphoplasty. It can help relieve pain by stabilizing the fracture. Improved mobility results because of decreased pain levels.

Dr. James Webb Kyphoplasty Expert

When it comes to kyphoplasty, Dr. Webb is one of the most experienced physicians in the U.S. Dr. Webb has performed thousands of kyphoplasty procedures and has the experience necessary to safely perform kyphoplasty. In fact, he also teaches other physicians how to safely and effectively perform the procedure.

Here are a few facts about Dr. Webb’s kyphoplasty expertise: He performed over 120 kyphoplasties during his training (fellowship). Was one of the first physicians to perform kyphoplasty in Oklahoma. Was a principal investigator in the EVOLVE trial, the largest ever on-label study of kyphoplasty in Medicare patients with vertebral fractures with 350 patients enrolled over 24 sites across the U.S. The first in Oklahoma and one of a few in the nation to establish a full-service outpatient clinic focused on medically treating the underlying causes of osteoporosis in patients with VCF. The highest level of experience in the Tulsa area with 300-400 fractures treated per year. Continues efforts to refine vertebral fracture treatment, consulting for numerous medical device companies and teaching other physicians how to perform this life-saving procedure.

While the term “Air Force One” summons visions of the president’s iconic private plane, it is in reality a technical term – the radio call sign for any Air Force plane with the commander in chief aboard, originating during President Dwight Eisenhower’s term. Dubbed Air Force 610, the then-pilot grew concerned when a nearby commercial airliner signaled in under a similar moniker. To avoid confusion, the president’s aerial ride became “Air Force One.” Now, Air Force One commonly refers to the two Boeing 747s with the tail codes 28000 and 29000, with the special designation VC-25A. The planes call Andrews Airforce Base in Maryland home and are serviced by the 89th Airlift Wing of the Air Force’s Air Mobility Command. With 4,000 feet of floor space, accommodations for 76 passengers plus 26 crew, and three floors, each aircraft is luxury in flight.

AIR FORCE ONE FLIES IN A CONVOY WITH CARGO PLANES AND FIGHTER JETS. The president’s private motorcade arrives beforehand in a C-141 Starlifter, and other cargo planes fly nearby with surplus stores including fuel, as it’s well known the plane can refuel in mid-air, allowing the president to stay in flight indefinitely.

Air Force One is equipped with top-secret defense equipment like radar jammers and radio antennae to repel a cyberattack, all housed in “The Attic” that runs the length of the plane.

PRESIDENTIAL STAFF ROOM/HOSPITAL

The working heart of the plane, aides and senior staff stay busy in this area that also converts to a hospital. A doctor and nurse are always aboard, and the room comes equipped with a fold-out operating table. Defibrillators, IVs and a pharmacy provide an aerial emergency room and surgical room.

Which Medicare Part D Plan is the Right Plan for You?

M

edicare’s Open Enrollment Period, during which people with Medicare can make unrestricted changes to their coverage, takes place every year from October 15 to December 7. Whether you’re approaching age 65 or already enrolled in Medicare, you should take advantage of this opportunity to review your options and see whether you are enrolled in the most cost-effective plan for your needs. Most plans change their costs and benefits every year, and some even decide not to participate in Medicare for the coming year. Making a careful comparison between the plan you have now and options available to you in 2021 is the only way to see if there is a better choice for you. In most cases, this will probably be your only chance to change your health and/or drug coverage for the next year. When reviewing your Medicare coverage, know that you will have many options to choose from. Typically, it’s beneficial to have choices, but you might find yourself overwhelmed. For example, in 2021, Medicare beneficiaries in Oklahoma will be able to select from 30 prescription drug plans, as well as many Advantage health plans available throughout the state. Many beneficiaries find it frustrating and difficult to compare plans due to the volume of information they receive in the mail and through the media. As a result, they often stay with the same plan, even if it is not the best option for them. Research shows that a large majority of people with Medicare could have saved hundreds of dollars last year by reviewing their prescription drug coverage. In fact, during last year’s enrollment period, over two-thirds of those who came to LIFE Senior

Services for help reviewing their drug coverage options either enrolled in Part D for the first time or switched plans for the next year, saving an average of $1,529 per person. Whether you are currently on Medicare or becoming eligible for Medicare in 2021, this annual Medicare Part D Guide, published by LIFE Senior Services, provides up-to-date information about the prescription drug plans available in 2021, as well as the Advantage health plans being offered in Tulsa County. LIFE Senior Services is a name thousands of seniors and their families have trusted for more than 46 years. Since 2004, LIFE has provided education and one-on-one assistance to thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, helping them compare Medicare Part D plans and enroll in the one that best fits their individual needs. As a partner agency of the Oklahoma Insurance Department, the Medicare Assistance Program at LIFE provides trusted services in northeast Oklahoma to Medicare beneficiaries, their representatives and those soon to be eligible for Medicare. As always, you can count on LIFE and LIFE’s Vintage Newsmagazine to bring you timely, unbiased information and assistance on Medicare Part D.

SIX PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARIES Within a Day’s Drive Pictured is the outside of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum Photo courtesy of www.lbjlibrary.org

BY LINDSAY MORRIS One of my greatest joys over the last decade has been paying visits to some of the presidential libraries and museums. Each one is a wonderful tribute to the man who held the title of commander in chief. The presidential library system formally began in 1939, when President Franklin Roosevelt donated his personal and presidential papers to the federal government. In 1950, Harry S. Truman decided that he would also build a library to house his presidential papers. In 1955, Congress passed the Presidential Libraries Act, establishing a system of privately built and federally maintained libraries. There are 14 presidential libraries and museums, one for each of the most recent 14 presidents. Here’s what you’ll find at the six that are closest to Tulsa.

* Check the museum websites for hours, as some were considering reopening using COVID-19 precautions. Throughout 2020, all of the libraries are offering online events that allow you to learn more about each president’s life and the era during which he served as president.

Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum

George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum

Austin, Texas 7-hour drive The LBJ Presidential Library was the first library I visited, and it was a way to start with a bang! LBJ was bigger than life, and his library reflects his big personality. Located on a 30-acre site on The University of Texas at Austin campus, the library presents the turbulent times in which Johnson was president – the 1960s. One of my favorite parts of the library was listening to dozens of LBJ’s historic White House telephone conversations. He was such a quotable man, and his conversations were unpredictable, lively and entertaining. Other permanent exhibits include a replica of the Oval Office, interactive displays about the Six-Day War and Vietnam War and Lady Bird Johnson’s office, which reflects her environmental efforts.

LIFE’s Vintage Newsmagazine | November 2020

Dallas, Texas 4-hour drive The newest presidential library that I have visited, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum has implemented technology in an impressive and attractive way. One of my most memorable experiences at any presidential library was at The Decision Points Theater, an interactive game that places visitors in the president’s shoes to consider various options to issues that George W. Bush faced during his administration, such as how to handle the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. This library also pays tribute to the events of 9/11 through an exhibit called A Nation Under Attack. It features a 22-foot piece of steel from the World Trade Center, the bullhorn President Bush used to address the crowd at Ground Zero and more.

Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum Independence, Missouri 4-hour drive The Truman Presidential Library and Museum is a must-see stop on a trip to Kansas City. The library is located in the town of Independence, on the outskirts of Kansas City, Missouri. Museum Director Kurt Graham said that Truman’s vision for his library was to be a place for young people to learn about government and the presidency. “Truman Library is at its core an educational institution for people of all ages,” Graham said. Some of the most memorable items in the museum collection include a mural in the entrance lobby, “Independence and the Opening of the West,” by Missouri artist Thomas Hart Benton, a reproduction of the Oval Office during the Truman administration and the actual office Truman used after retirement. Photo courtesy of www.facebook.com/TrumanPresidentialLibrary

President and Mrs. Truman and their only child, Margaret Truman Daniel, and her husband, Clifton Daniel, are buried in the courtyard.  

William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum Little Rock, Arkansas 4-hour drive Nestled in a modern building in downtown Little Rock is the Clinton Presidential Library. One of the biggest impressions left on me after touring this library was just how many gifts a President of the United States receives. More than any of the other libraries I’ve visited, the Clinton Presidential Library does an excellent job displaying gifts from citizens of the U.S. and foreign heads of state. The gifts reflect the president’s personality, his interests and events that occurred around the time they were given. Some are patriotic. Others reference President Clinton’s home state of Arkansas. Many bear his likeness or those of the first lady, daughter Chelsea, or pets Buddy and Socks.  Some of the permanent exhibits at the Clinton Library include the presidential limousine, a tribute to the Little Rock Nine and a replica of the Oval Office. This library also features a restaurant, named 42, serving lunch, dinner and brunch. Photo courtesy of www.clintonfoundation.org

Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum Abilene, Kansas 4-hour drive The Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum is in the most remote area to which I’ve

traveled to see a presidential library. Abilene, Kansas is a small, rural town, but it’s home to a massive 22-acre Presidential Library honoring Ike, as President Eisenhower was lovingly known. I started the visit at the Boyhood Home, where the Eisenhowers lived from 1898 until Ike’s mother, Ida, died in 1946. I then made my way to the 11-foot bronze statue of General Eisenhower in the center of campus. The museum focuses largely on Eisenhower’s life as World War II General. Mini-theaters allow visitors to hear about Ike’s military victories. President Eisenhower, First Lady Mamie Eisenhower and their first-born son, Doud, are buried on-site as well. Photo courtesy of Karen Torme Olson, Chicago Tribune

George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum College Station, Texas 6-hour, 30 minute drive I remember being in awe when approaching this immense library from the country roads of College Station. Once inside, I was flooded with replicas from Bush’s life and time as president – President Bush's Camp David Office and White House Press Room, and then I received a briefing on the Gulf War in the Situation Room. You can have your picture taken while seated at the desk in a replica Oval Office. You can see a World War II Avenger Torpedo Bomber, a 1947 Studebaker and a slab of the Berlin Wall. In addition, a special section is dedicated to First Lady Barbara Bush and her efforts on behalf of literacy and AIDS awareness and prevention.

The Bush Family Gravesite is also on-site, quietly nestled behind the Presidential Pond of the Center grounds. It honors the life of President George H.W. Bush, First Lady Barbara Bush and their daughter, Pauline Robinson “Robin" Bush.  Photo courtesy of Dave McDermand, The Eagle

lection month seems like a good time to brush up on civics, and why not start with one of the more intriguing aspects of the federal government – the United States intelligence community. From “The X-Files” and “Get Smart” to “The Hunt for Red October” and “Mission: Impossible,” the Secret Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) are perennial favorites of the big and little screens alike. Who doesn’t enjoy a good thriller? While the fictionalized activities of these agencies have long held our fascination, the reality is pretty interesting, too.

U.S. INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY Election security, global terrorism and nuclear capability – the news is full of topics directly or indirectly under the purview of the U.S. intelligence community. But what is this community? Generally speaking, the term refers to a group of some 17 agencies and offices, including organizations like the Drug Enforcement Agency and even the Department of the Treasury that work under a general mission of keeping the nation safe by collecting,

LIFE’s Vintage Newsmagazine | November 2020

analyzing and delivering foreign intelligence and counterintelligence information to America’s leaders. Some of its better-known members, at least to the general public, are the Secret Service, FBI and CIA.  UNITED STATES SECRET SERVICE Headquartered in Washington, D.C. with more than 150 offices in the U.S. and abroad, the Secret Service was established by president Abraham Lincoln in 1865 at the end of the Civil War to suppress the counterfeiting of U.S. currency, which was widespread at the time.   It wasn’t until after the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901 (then the third president to be assassinated while in office), that the Secret Service assumed full-time responsibility for the protection of the president. Later, that protection was extended to the vice president, president-elect, vice president-elect (and their immediate families), as well as former presidents, their spouses and children (under the age of 16), and visiting heads of foreign states or governments. After the assassination of Robert Kennedy in 1968, major presidential and vice-presidential candidates and their spouses began receiving protection, too.

www.LIFEseniorservices.org


Formerly part of the Department of the Treasury, the Secret Service was transferred to the Department of Homeland Security in 2003. It’s grown from a small handful of operatives to a law enforcement agency with nearly 7,000 employees worldwide. THE CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Now we’re talking spies – or in today’s language, operations officers. Probably the most recognized intelligence agency, the CIA is known for collecting intelligence on foreign governments and conducting covert operations, including funneling money to opposition groups in other countries to sway elections or oust certain foreign leaders.  Created in 1947 when President Harry S. Truman signed the National Security Act, the CIA “engages in research, development and deployment of high-leverage technology for intelligence purposes.” Yes, the stuff of intrigue.  The primary mission of the agency is to collect, analyze, evaluate and disseminate foreign intelligence to help the president and senior U.S. government policymakers make decisions regarding national security. The CIA collects its information in all kinds of ways, including some downright old-fashioned ones, like translating foreign newspaper and magazine articles, radio and television broadcasts. In true James Bond style, CIA operations officers also recruit foreigners to gain information about their countries. Although the CIA provides the information needed to make decisions about national security, the agency itself doesn’t make policy. Instead, it functions as an independent source of foreign intelligence information for those who do. Over the years, the CIA has been accused of engaging in activities like drug trafficking and the assassination of foreign leaders or other public figures. The agency has steadfastly denied these allegations, pointing to Executive Order 12333 of 1981, which explicitly prohibits the CIA from engaging in assassinations, and internal investigations that have found no evidence to support allegations of drug trafficking for any purpose.

FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION The FBI has both intelligence gathering and law enforcement responsibilities. With over 35,000 agents, analysts and other professionals across the globe, the agency is charged with protecting the U.S. from terrorism, espionage, cyber-attacks and major criminal threats. 

Medical Staffing & Home Care Specialists

In addition to its headquarters in Washington, D.C., the FBI has 56 field offices across the nation and more than 350 satellite offices. In Oklahoma, the field office is located in Oklahoma City.

"The FBI’s Oklahoma City Field Office investigates federal crimes in which we have legal authority,” an FBI spokesperson at the Oklahoma City office told Vintage Newsmagazine.  “FBI criminal investigations may include matters of domestic and international terrorism, foreign counterintelligence, cybercrime, public corruption, civil rights, organized crime/drugs, white-collar crime, violent crimes and serious crimes committed within Indian Country. The FBI emphasizes close relations and information sharing with other federal, state, local and international law enforcement and intelligence agencies."  July 26, 1908, is the “official” birthdate of the FBI. The organization was created at the behest of President Theodore Roosevelt’s second Attorney General, Charles Bonaparte (Napoleon’s grandnephew), to counter what he saw as a rising tide of crime and corruption. Significant FBI cases include 9/11, the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, the KKK’s 1963 bombing of Birmingham’s Baptist Street Church and JFK’s assassination.  Without a doubt, the U.S. intelligence community makes for great movie plots, but the real-life workings are equally fascinating. For more information on all of these agencies, visit www.fbi.gov, www.secretservice.gov or www.cia.gov.

BY KELSEY HOLDER s WWII loomed on the horizon, the United States War Department worked feverishly – in 17 buildings spread around Washington. Brigadier General Brehon Somervell pitched the idea for a central building, gained approval, and crews broke ground on September 11, 1941. Its unique shape stemmed from the original plot of land, Arlington Farms, which required a pentagonal configuration. However, President Franklin Roosevelt became concerned the original site would block the view of Washington from Arlington National Cemetery and relocated the new building to the former site of Washington D.C.’s first airport. The move didn’t change the shape of things, though; FDR liked the unique design and carried it to the new location.

A The Hall of Heroes created in 1968, displays every recipient of the Medal of Honor from each of the armed forces four branches.

Construction ended in January of 1943, $63 billion later, though occupants started to move in on April 29, 1942. Now home to the United States Department of Defense, it’s one of America’s national treasures, unique in both history and design.

APRIL 29, 1943 Divisions Move Into the Building

www.LIFEseniorservices.org


The building in the center of the courtyard has housed several different food vendors.

The Pentagon Library and Conference Center.

PENTAGON FAST FACTS 1. The Pentagon's Geometry – Five concentric rings intersected by 10 corridors comprise the building, with five floors and a basement. A five-acre center courtyard sits in the middle, replete with a hot dog stand. Each side, or “wedge,” measures 921 feet long, reaching 71 feet in height, with a total walking distance of 17.5 miles. With 6.34 million square feet, it’s the largest office building in the world by floor area, two times that of the Empire State Building. The U.S. Capitol can fit in just one of the wedges, and it’s rumored that General Dwight D. Eisenhower enlisted the help of a group of stenographers to find his own office upon losing his bearings. 2. Location, Location, Location – The building sits on a “Pentagon Reservation” – 220 acres including a remote delivery facility that receives 250 truck deliveries each day and processes 3.75 million packages per year. It’s also home to the Pentagon Athletic Center, the Pentagon Library and the Pentagon Conference Center, host to about 7,800 meetings each year. 3. A Building With Multiple Zip Codes – The Pentagon assigns six different zip codes for the different departments and

branches that call it home: Secretary of Defense (20301); Joint Chiefs of Staff (20318); U.S. Army (20310); U.S. Air Force (20330); U.S. Navy (20350); and the U.S. Marine Corps (20380). 4. Going Up – Originally, the building offered no passenger elevators due to supply shortages during the war. The 13 original elevators were for freight only. Instead, workers moved between levels via ramps. With the massive renovation efforts beginning in the early 1990s and ending in 2011, the building now has 70 elevators. 5. An Office Building With Many Restrooms – The Pentagon contains twice the number of required restrooms – 284 to be exact. During construction, enough bathrooms were planned to account for the segregation laws of the time. However, during construction, FDR signed the legislation ending racial segregation, and the Pentagon opened with plenty of restrooms for all to use. 6. The Attacks of 9/11 – On September 11, 2001, exactly 60 years after construction began, terrorists flew American Airlines Flight 77 into Wedge 1 of the Pentagon. At the

time, renovations had just been completed, including enhanced security features like walls and windows with increased blast resistance. While not everyone was back in the office, 184 people nevertheless died that day. The Pentagon Memorial, dedicated in September 2008, includes 184 benches with each victim’s name etched in the stone and sits on a two-acre plot at South West Wedge 1 corner. Crews completed reconstruction, Project Phoenix, in February 2003, at five times the cost of the original building. 7. The Center Courtyard – It earned the nickname Ground Zero during the Cold War because officials believed the Pentagon would be the Soviet Union’s first target for a nuclear attack. 8. The Hall of Heroes – Created in 1968, displays every recipient of the Medal of Honor from each of the Armed Forces four branches. Part memorial and part gathering place, it also hosts celebrations of promotions, retirements and other ceremonies.

MAY 17, 1976 Tours of the Pentagon were established.

To show appreciation, various local restaurants and retail shops will offer discounts or freebies to both veterans and active-duty military. This year, many will offer these options with their curbside or “to-go” services. Restaurants that regularly participate include Applebee’s, Carrabba’s, Cracker Barrel, Golden Corral, Texas Roadhouse, Red Robin, Outback and Red Lobster – to name a few. National chain restaurant offerings will vary on a local level, so it

is best to call your favorite spot before going to see what specials they might be offering.

If you are unsure, you can always check with your favorite stores to see if they provide any deals for veterans and active-duty military for the holiday.

Contribute to a New Book About Tulsa’s Historic Movie Theaters The Ritz, Orpheum, Majestic and Rialto are familiar names to many Tulsans who grew up in a time when downtown movie palaces still existed. Others remember the early neighborhood theaters like the Delman, Will Rogers and the Brook. Those memories and more will be captured in a new book about Tulsa’s historic movie theaters.   "Tulsa Movie Theaters" will include photographs and information featuring the history of movie theaters throughout the Tulsa area, from the earliest, silentera film houses and glamorous movie palaces to drive-ins and multiplexes.

The program has enabled many people to get the medical, drug, or mental health care treatment they need without the heartache of having to give up their pet. They can relax into treatment knowing their pet will be in a safe and loving environment and that they will get their pet back when they are discharged. All pets are vaccinated and neutered, and all expenses are covered.

WHAT IS LIFE PACE? PACE stands for “A Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly.” It may surprise readers to hear that “elderly” can be anyone 55 years of age and up. It’s not a word that you’ll find very often in “Vintage Newsmagazine,” but stick with us – it’s the services that matter. LIFE PACE is a coordinated healthcare program that uses a team approach to meeting individual needs. The goal of the LIFE PACE program is to help people remain independent in their home for as long as is safely possible. It’s for people who have chronic issues that need long-term management. In addition to living in the PACE service area and being 55 and older, there are income and resource guidelines that apply to those seeking services, according to Intake Manager Adrian Rolle. “LIFE PACE participants come from varied living situations. Some are living in their own homes; some have moved in with children or other family caregivers. They may have had a sudden change in condition, like a broken hip after a fall or stroke or heart attack. Or they may have a disease like diabetes or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) that has gotten worse or hasn’t gotten the attention it needs,” he said. Older adults accepted into LIFE PACE receive “All-Inclusive Care” from a team of professionals that includes a geriatrician, registered nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, social worker, dietician, home care coordinator, personal care specialist, transportation and scheduling coordinator, activities specialist and day center manager. ARE YOU ACCEPTING NEW PARTICIPANTS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC? Yes. LIFE PACE has openings and is accepting new participants with modified practices to make sure services can be delivered safely. The program may be even more appealing to participants and their caregivers at this time due to the added restrictions on senior living communities.

If you are interested in this program, please contact Cindy Webb at (918) 829-9811 or cindy@pause4pawsok.org You can find Pause4Paws online at www.pause4pawsok.org.

“The first step in the conversation we have with the applicant and their caregiver is to make sure it’s the right fit for them,” Rolle said. “We learn what their care concerns are. After that, we will shepherd them through the application process.”

The American Red Cross is looking for Disaster Recovery Casework volunteers. Volunteers will be conducting phone interviews with clients, assessing the qualifications for direct client assistance, documenting the services provided and assisting with recovery planning. Volunteers will also assist clients with information needed and referrals to other community partners. You will work and train from your home. The American Red Cross will provide an orientation. To help victims of disasters get on the path to recovery, contact Marama Bayles-Raleigh at (539) 777-3441 or marama.baylesraleigh@REDCROSS.ORG.

One of the LIFE PACE strengths is its adaptability to each participant’s circumstances. With an interdisciplinary team to manage diverse healthcare needs, “everybody is at the table already with PACE to coordinate care and help participants make informed decisions," Rolle said. "You have a team of professionals that say, ‘this is what we think will work,’ and the ball is already in motion."

Walter Reed National Military Medical Center

A close look at the presidential physical dispels myths – and reveals some secrets. BY JULIE WEGNER WATSON

The office of commander in chief of the United States is an extremely demanding job. The hours, responsibility and stress take a physical and mental toll on anyone who occupies the Oval Office. With that in mind, it should be interesting to learn about the president’s annual physical examination when it comes to the security of the country and the functioning of its government. However, when you dig a little deeper, you might be surprised at what you discover. Let’s take a minute to dispel some myths and look at the facts around the presidential annual exam. Is the Annual Physical Required? Although it’s become a ritual in modern times, the law doesn’t actually require the president to undergo a physical exam. Where Does the Exam Take Place? Normally, the exam takes place at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center located in Bethesda, Maryland.

38

Who is responsible for examining the president? Navy Rear Admiral Ronny L. Jackson, M.D., was the White House physician from 2006 and the lead White House doctor since 2013. Jackson performed President Trump’s 2018 physical but retired from the Navy at the end of 2019. Dr. Sean Conley, an osteopath, is now known as the physician to the president. He is also a decorated Naval officer. What Tests Does the President Receive? The exam routinely includes blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, heart rate and weight. Other tests that might be included are eye exams, thyroid, pulmonary system, heart, intestine, nervous system, skin and ears, nose and throat. However, just because tests are performed during the exam doesn’t mean the results will be disclosed to the public. What About the President’s Mental Health? Although many have advocated for it, there is not necessarily a cognitive or psychiatric aspect to the exam.

LIFE’s Vintage Newsmagazine | November 2020

When President Donald Trump went to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in early October, he was the latest of many U.S. leaders to seek medical treatment at the hospital that provides “warrior care.” The medical center, located 9 miles from the White House in Bethesda, Maryland, includes presidential and first lady suites as well as a secure area where White House staff can stay and work. The Bethesda site is the second location for the medical center which is named after Major Walter Reed (1851-1902), an Army physician and professor who taught in the late 1800s at the newly established Army Medical School. Reed was an epidemiologist who is credited with proving that yellow fever is transmitted by the mosquito. The original Walton Reed General Hospital opened in 1909 at what is now Ft. McNair in Washington D.C. The facility treated hundreds of thousands of soldiers through both World Wars, Korea and Vietnam. That medical center was closed, and the current Walter Reed National Military Medical Center opened in 2011. Combined with the former National Naval Medical Center, it is the world’s largest joint military medical center, its website states. It’s also known as the President’s Hospital and the Nation’s Medical Center.

www.LIFEseniorservices.org


Does the Public Get to See the Results? First, there is no real legal definition of what it means for a president to be “fit for office,” so even when information or results are conveyed to the public after a physical exam, it’s not measured against any standard regarding the president’s ability to perform the job. It is customary, however, for the White House to release a detailed report after the physical, and reporters are often allowed to ask questions of the physician who performed the exam in a press conference. Keep in mind that, although the White House medical unit gives the media a summary of the president’s health, the president signs off on what information is released – or withheld. Because of this, the summary can look a lot more like a press release than an independent health assessment. Do Presidents Ever Conceal Medical Issues? Several presidents have had medical issues that, had they been disclosed, might have raised questions about the stability of the nation's leadership. Concerned that a presidential health crisis would lead to an economic crisis, President Grover Cleveland hid his mouth cancer from the public, even going to the extreme of sneaking a surgical team onto his yacht to operate in secret. In 1919, three years after taking office, Woodrow Wilson suffered a stroke. His health continued to deteriorate significantly, although the public was kept in the dark. Behind the scenes his wife Edith essentially took over his duties, and the true state of Wilson’s health wasn’t revealed until after his term ended in 1921. Although it seems hard to believe today when every phone is a camera, during his presidency, Franklin Delano Roosevelt took great care to keep his heart disease, polio and paralysis hidden. A paraplegic, FDR used a special wheelchair most of the time. However, he used a system of leg braces and a cane to “walk” during public appearances. At his request, the press refrained from photographing him and the Secret Service was responsible for stopping others from photographing him in any way that would make him appear weak. Dwight D. Eisenhower suffered from numerous health issues during his time in office. Elected in 1952, he had a heart attack in 1955. He was later diagnosed with Crohn’s disease (a serious gastrointestinal disorder) and had a stroke in 1957. The extent of his health issues was greatly downplayed during his tenure as president. John F. Kennedy’s staff worked hard to maintain his image of youth and vitality despite the fact he was in poor health and chronic pain. For fear of damaging his political career, Kennedy’s diagnosis of Addison’s disease, an endocrine disorder, and his struggles with allergies, back pain and stomach disorders were kept from the public. Who Can Decide if a President is Unfit for Office? Here’s the catch. Despite the elaborate ritual around and importance placed on the annual presidential physical exam, there’s no actual mechanism in place for an independent panel of health experts to evaluate the president’s fitness for office. In fact, for the most part, the decision is left up to the president himself. Section 3 of the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution, which was ratified in 1967, allows a sitting president, members of the cabinet, or, in extraordinary circumstances, Congress, to transfer the president’s responsibilities to the vice president until the president has recovered from a physical or mental ailment. Although the 25th Amendment does exist as a fail-safe that can theoretically be used to if any president truly appears to be unfit, this provision has never been used to permanently remove a president from office.

Recommended Reads

Bunkering With Books A deadly forest fire, a surprising blonde and a British whodunit take center stage in this month’s review. BY CONNIE CRONLEY The west’s current wildfires of historic proportions inspired me to reread Norman Maclean’s “Young Men and Fire,” one of my all-time favorite nonfiction books by one of my favorite authors. The afternoon of August 5, 1949, a 15-man crew of the U.S. Forest Service’s elite Smokejumpers based in Missoula parachuted into a Montana forest to fight a fire in the remote Mann Gulch. Less than an hour later, all but three were dead or mortally burned. Maclean, a former Montana firefighter himself, was haunted by this tragedy. What was the fire science of the freak combination of wind and topography? Was there a Forest Service coverup? He explores those questions in elegant storytelling, combining a detective story with a tribute to courage. Maclean began his literary career after he retired from the University of Chicago where he taught Shakespeare and the Romantic poets. Three years later, in 1976, his radiant “A River Runs Through It and Other Stories” was published. Then, at age 74, he began “Young Men and Fire,” in part to answer the puzzle of himself. “Self-identity is not just a problem for the young,” he said. “It is a problem all the time. It should haunt old age.” Maclean researched and worked on the book for 10 years, and it was unfinished when he died in 1990 at age 87. The book was completed with his notes, drafts and finished manuscript pages and published posthumously. 40

About the same time, I reread Maclean’s book about the Montana forest fire, a former librarian in Montana asked if I ever read “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” She had just discovered this 1925 Jazz age classic by Anita Loos and found it laugh-outloud funny.

Sherwood Anderson and H. G. Wells. James Joyce took breaks from writing “Finnegans Wake” to read it. Remember, it was all new stuff to them. In hindsight, we know the territory. Get a copy that includes Loos’s introductory essay, “The Biography of a Book,” about how she came to write it.

I had that tread-worn reply about seeing the 1953 movie starring Marilyn Monroe, but I had not read the book. Big mistake. I laughed out loud, too, starting on page one. And just like that, in this gray and toxic time, the sun came out at least for a while. This is the kind of humor I love, the same charm and wit of Ring Lardner (“You Know Me Al”) James Thurber, Dorothy Parker and Noel Coward. Casually, gently, refreshingly politically incorrect.

Loos, a petite (4’11”) brunette, was a highfashion playwright, author and friend of Hollywood and Broadway stars. As the first female scriptwriter in Hollywood, famous for her sharp wit and one-liners, she managed to insert humor into the heavy-handed silent film “Intolerance” with the intertitle, “When women cease to attract men they often turn to Reform as a second choice.” D. W. Griffith called her the most brilliant woman in the world. In one of her memoirs she wrote, “I’ve enjoyed my happiest moments when trailing a Mainbocher evening gown across the sawdust-covered floor of a saloon.” Next up for me, Loos’s memoir “A Girl Like I.”

The ditzy, not-as-dumb-as-you-think blonde from Little Rock, Arkansas, with the musical name of Lorelei Lee is on a quest to improve her mind and enrich her jewelry box with the help of a string of gentlemen suitors. One of them finances her travels from New York across Europe with her wise-cracking traveling companion Dorothy, a brunette modeled on Loos herself. Edith Wharton called this little book “The Great American Novel” because it captured the avarice and frivolity of the era, and H. L. Mencken praised it as “a farce of shrewd observation and devastating irony.” William Faulkner was a fan along with F. Scott Fitzgerald, E. B. White,

LIFE’s Vintage Newsmagazine | November 2020

In a quest for escapism, I read the new, highlytouted “A Gentleman’s Murder,” the debut mystery by Christopher Huang set in England in 1924 and guaranteed to “delight fans of Golden Age detective fiction.” I found it not as witty as British mysteries by Anthony Horowitz and not as historically interesting as the series by Charles Todd’s Detective Ian Rutledge books set in postWorld War I England – but entertaining, diverting and better than no post-World War I England mystery at all. www.LIFEseniorservices.org

THE DINNER BELLE

Five Generations of Family Cooking BY CINDY WEBB

Hungry for good, old-fashioned country cooking? Shiloh’s hits the spot! Located conveniently off the Broken Arrow Expressway at Aspen, this family-friendly restaurant is an easy drive from Tulsa and Broken Arrow. Originally owned by the Haynes family, it was purchased in 2018 by Brittany and Sean Sylvester. According to Brittany, many of the recipes are still straight out of the Hayne’s family “cookbook,” such as Grandma Ethel’s Vegetable Beef Stew and Grandma Pam’s Meatloaf. It’s fun to read the history of the restaurant on the website. I ordered takeout on a Thursday afternoon and was surprised at the number of cars in the parking lot. The theme of the restaurant is country, evidenced by the décor and music. To be honest, Shiloh’s could use a bit of spiffing up, but when you crave good down-home cooking, who cares about “atmosphere.” Due to COVID-19, the tables were spread at least 6 feet apart, and the staff were wearing masks. 42

Once in my car, I checked to make sure my order was complete. Out of one bag wafted the mouth-watering scent of warm yeast rolls. I had not ordered them, so they are apparently included with entrees. The smell of freshly baked bread was too much for me, and I ate a big chunk out of one of the aromatic rolls. Hey, some things just need to be sampled piping hot! It was big, fluffy and deliciously buttery/sweet. Since my fingers were now already greasy, I sampled my appetizer: onion rings. Again, a winner! The crust was crunchy and tasty, and the slice of onion toothsome and sweet. They were served with a delicious homemade ranch dressing. Garnering all my self-control, I dropped the rest of the roll back in the bag, closed up the onion ring box and headed home. Sadly, the onion rings didn’t travel well and were soggy by the time I got home. If you order them, plan on eating in the dining room, or bring lots of napkins and eat the whole mess in the car before you get home!

Shiloh’s has an extensive menu, with all dishes clearly described on their website. I ordered parmesan-crusted tilapia which came with garlic mashed potatoes. For my side, I went straight for their mac and cheese. The tilapia was nicely browned with a good, parmesan crust and served with both a fresh lemon wedge and thick tartar sauce. The sprinkling of tart lemon was a perfect complement to the savory fish. The mashed potatoes were fresh and tasty. I’m not a huge garlic fan, so I was delighted that the garlic wasn’t overwhelming. The mac and cheese sauce was smooth and creamy with a warm, smoky flavor. I was surprised to find that my dinner roll came with a small container of what I thought was jelly. But when I opened it, I found it was more like a strawberry sauce. Later I learned from Brittany that it is actually a strawberry/ rhubarb coulis, or fruit sauce, from a 150-year-old Haynes family recipe. Scrumptious! My husband, Bill, decided to go plant-based about a year ago but was willing to make the sacrifice for this article and order meat. Before becoming vegan, he enjoyed mushroom Swiss burgers, so I chose that with a side of green beans. His burger was cooked perfectly to order and was nicely seasoned. The Swiss cheese was fully melted and blended well with the freshly sauteed mushrooms. The green beans were delicious – cooked fresh, just like his Arkansas granny’s, with bits of bacon and onion. For dessert, I ordered the coconut cream pie for us to share. It was tall, not too sweet, with a generous dose of coconut. However, all I wanted for dessert was another dinner roll. Bill reluctantly traded me his dinner roll for my half of pie, and I happily swabbed up every last bit of the yummy strawberry/ rhubarb coulis. Vintage Newsmagazine Managing Editor Dee Duren, and her friend, Diane, also ordered dessert from Shiloh’s and were pleased with the experience. Diane ordered Aunt Fern’s Lemon Cream Pie, while Dee ordered Grandma Pam’s Blackberry Cobbler. “Neither dessert was super high in sugar,” Dee said. “You could really taste the fruit flavor.” Dee added that her blackberry cobbler had a lot of whole blackberries, and was definitely “fresh and flavorful.” According to Brittany, Shiloh’s serves Thanksgiving dinner starting at 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day. They also offer entire Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for carryout. Alternately, you can order your holiday meal components a la carte, choosing from turkey or ham and a variety of sides. Shiloh’s also caters.
