The Adams County Record Wednesday, August 22, 2012 Page 11 Council Senior Happenings Wow! Surprise, here I am once more, putting in my two cents, (for what it's worth). So many changes in life, and as we know, we don't always like them, but they are a necessity. We have been in a state of flux at our Council Senior Center, and it has had everyone ih a bit of a mood. Some are good and some are not so good. But change is a fact of life. And I hope the changes will be good ones. The board of directors of the Council Senior Center voted to sign a contract with CCOA (Aging, Weatherization & Human Services) on Wednesday, August 15. The CCOA dispenses / distributes State and Federal funds to senior services - in this case, nutrition, qqae amount the Center gets from CCOA per meal is a mere pittance (has been $.57) but CCOA does do payroll for the coordinator, cook and the bus driver. Beginning Tuesday (August 21) the center will be doing the Meals on Wheels once again. Also beginning August 21, the center will be open By Shirley A. Wilson three days per week, as it way to go for all of those used to be, on Tuesdays, involved. Wednesdays and Fridays. The Board of Directors would like to thank all of you who have supported the Center all these years and have been steadfast in your support. We hope this change will benefit all of us in the long run. It's been rather difficult to decide what was the best I will be keeping you updated on the goings on at the Center and make sure you get the menu so you see what we are serving on which day. Please come and join us. I would like to give a personal shout out to Alv'le Yantis. Get well soon and don't go out there and go to work before you are supposed to. I know you are made of strong stock, but be smart about it. I know Nancy will take good care of you. And Irene, we miss you. I hope you are coming along and will be back with us real soon. I know Sassy misses the walks on the trail. Jerry said she didn't want to go if you weren't there. Cambridge Senior Chatter by Janice Vuich Cawyer -- 257-3358 Where has everyone gone? Normally we have around 12 to 15 people for dinner on Fridays, but last Friday only about 4 people showed up. We were ready to feed a small army with lots of spaghetti, salad and garlic bread; those that came ate like Italian princes. I guess we will have Spaghetti on the menu again in the near ' future unless Ursula can use the sauce in making lasagna or some other Italian dish. It could just be the heat that is keeping people at home. I know I'm getting really tired of these high 90 degree days; the only blessing I can see is the coolness of the evenings, at least a person can sleep. But the daytime heat sure wears a person out fast. I wonder how people survive that live in really hot climes with heat that last far longer than the month or two that we endure in the north. My parents used to have a small trailer in Niland, California, which is in the desert quite a ways south of Palm Springs and close to the Salton Sea. They loved to fish and hunt, and the property had date palms; it was their get away from the Los Angeles area of California. I remember asking how they ould stand to go there in the summer time, and I can remember morn telling me that they got up early, did what they were going to do, took naps in the heat of the afternoon and went out again when it started to cool off in the evening. Since I've never been an early morning person, I guess I will just have to wait for fall when the days, .gas have risen substantially while warm, will still be much cooler than this weather has been lately. Enough of my meanderings, I hope you made it to our Food pantry on August 23rd. There wasn't much of a selection to order from, but every little bit helps. I couldn't believe, the cost of groceries when we went shopping on the 14th. And, with the drought, it is only going to get worse. I love it when the government says thmt we have no inflation, butt the cost of food and in the past few years. Oh wait, they took those things out of the index they use to determine the rate of inflation. I would love to see our elected officials live on Social Security and watch how fast they added those things back into the equation. Last year my cost of living increase for Social Security was 2% and that was after having no cost of living increases for two years! But then I don't need to tell you about it, my dear reader, you're in the same boat as I am. Do you ever feel as though you Pastor's Corner your parents Why is it that kids have specifically at children, moral compass. such a hard time following Not only that, but God is Ephesians 6:2 goes on instructions from parents saying that obedience to to say: "Honor your father sometimes? You may your parents flows out of and mother-- which is chalk it up to selective your relationship "in the the first commandment hearing, a rebellious spirit, Lord" Obedience to your with a promise--so that even procrastination. I parents is actually a visible it may go well with you read recently that delayed and practical sign to the and that you may enjoy obedience is equivalent watching world of yourlong life on earth" This by Les Sheneberger you would have saved yourself had you simply honored your parents in their decisions. Being rebellious can even* have a physical cost in terms of shortening your life through self-destructive behavior. The stress are tilting at windmills? Don't forget that month end is coming up fast and if you have any volunteer hours I'd like to hear about them. Also, if you have talked to anyone about seniors let me know about that as well. I'm thinking that perhaps when we have our next chicken fried steak meal, we might make it a "Bring a Friend to Dinner day" where all "guests" over the age of 60 eat for free. Perhaps, the word will get out that we're not just a bunch of old fogies and some might even want to join us more often. If you have any ideas on how we can increase membership, please let me know of them. Our next shopping trip to Ontario will be on September llth, the next blood pressure clinic will be on September 26th and September's Food Pantry will be on the 27th. Until next time, try to stay cool and drink plenty of liquids. I think I'm going to go home and take a nap! Council Valley Free Library Book Shelf New Books at the Council Library to disobedience.
