After a COVID hiatus last year, the free senior directory Yellow Book has returned to an even greater reception than before, according to the Pikes Peak Region Agency on Aging, which produces the annual guide.

A second printing of the 176-page annual directory of information and assistance for the elderly, or yellow book, has already been ordered, said Jessica McMullen, spokeswoman for the government-funded agency which runs a center for information and assistance for the elderly, support for carers and coordination of mobility. and management.

“We’ve had more interest from our sites in having them,” McMullen said. “We’ve expanded the locations we provide copies to and we’re giving them more.”

The original printing of 10,000 copies is now increasing to 15,000, she said.

The free directory contains information on more than 800 services for seniors in El Paso, Teller and Park counties.

And for the first time, McMullen said, hard copies are available in Spanish at all branches in the Pikes Peak Library District. Local libraries also have printed versions in English.

The Colorado Springs Senior Center and Silver Key Senior Services also distribute copies.

The best places to pick up the guide in Teller County are the Teller Senior Coalition in Divide and the Aspen Mine Center in Cripple Creek. In Park County, they can be found at the Park County Senior Coalition in Fairplay.

El Paso County’s population 65 and older has grown significantly according to US Census Bureau data. Between 2000 and 2020, the number of elderly residents increased from 44,787 to 96,412 over those 20 years.

That’s a 115% increase. And the numbers are expected to rise in the decades to come.

The state’s Bureau of Demography predicts that 172,394 people age 65 and older will live in the county in 2040, due to the nation’s declining birth rate, aging baby boomers and growing number of seniors who move here to retire or be closer to family. If the forecasts are confirmed, this would represent an increase of 79% compared to today.

McMullen said the Pikes Peak agency on aging is getting positive feedback on the scope of content from the yellow book – which has been published annually since 1967 – and that people had no idea there were so many services in the region.

“They say the information is just invaluable,” she said.

Because the agency is funded by state and federal money, the Yellow Book has no paid advertising, McMullen said.

The agency also publishes a guide to veterans benefits and Medicaid for adults, which includes tips and data on free counseling services.

April 26, 2022 Newark, De and Washington, DC – Last week the International Fresh Produce Association BB#:378962 coordinated X-Change, a school catering partner, to connect producer-shippers of produce with leading K-12 school menu planners from 18 of the largest U.S. school districts and education providers preschool.

The Partner X-Change was developed to enhance the produce industry’s understanding of this unique, high-volume foodservice customer and to create opportunities to increase access to and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables at school.

The virtual event connected buyers and sellers for 15-minute “speed dating” meetings. School administrators shared information about their menu planning, procurement processes and the types of fruits and vegetables they currently offer, as well as what they would be interested in serving in the months and year to come. to come.

Fruit and vegetable suppliers were informed directly by the school food service operators of their needs and had the opportunity to ask questions. They also highlighted their company’s capabilities and products, including bulk and fresh-cut produce, as well as individual kid-friendly snacks.

“K-12 schools are often the ‘biggest restaurant in town’ and can be a collaborative partner in introducing thousands of school children to a new product, as well as a variety of traditional product choices in a consistent way” said Andrew Marshall, IFPA Staff Liaison for Wholesale-Distributor Members and Lead for K-12 School Nutrition Community Engagement Opportunities.

Every day, 31 million children take part in the National School Lunch Program. Schools are required to offer a fruit and a vegetable, and students must walk out of their queue with at least one serving of produce on their plate. In addition to lunch, many schools also offer breakfast, fresh fruit and vegetable snacks in class, and an after-school supper program.

“These recent meetings have been invaluable, providing much-needed insight into how schools currently deliver meals and their needs and interests moving forward,” said Michelle Roberts, director of marketing at Taylor Farms Foodservice.

“Some schools are going back to salad bars, some are still in dire need of individually wrapped single-serving products, and some want a fresh take-out meal that includes all food components, so it’s fully refundable by USDA standards. Overall, IFPA’s partner X-Change has been helpful in understanding school administrators’ thinking, and it was great to hear their interest and commitment to making “new” options more easily accessible. to their students. »

Lisa Griffin, director of child nutrition for Union Public Schools in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was one of this year’s school canteen partner X-Change participants.

She said: “Being part of these meetings has been incredibly helpful. We are currently working on our product offering and due to our conversations we are now planning to add new items, update our specifications for some bulk and individual pack sizes and it was also great to hear more about the resources producers and industry partners have to help customers choose fresh produce. Schools can also take advantage of these marketing materials!

Schools and product suppliers who participated in the K-12 School Foodservice Partner X-Change, included:

K-12 school foodservice partner X-Change continues the association’s engagement with elementary and secondary school menu planners, programming that was previously coordinated by the United Fresh Produce Association.

In July, the association will also host K-12 school menu planners at the IFPA Foodservice Conference, July 28-29, in Monterey, California. The association has already begun inviting school nutrition officials in California and will also coordinate a school catering forum to bring menu planners from big-city schools to the event. School buyers will be able to discover new products at the exhibition, take part in tours of nearby growing fields and connect with existing and new suppliers.

To continue supporting K-12 school food professionals, IFPA is also offering year-round resources and connections:
• Free IFPA membership to take advantage of all the connections and resources IFPA has to offer
• A portfolio of foodservice-focused resources, including fresh produce trends and research to help plan and inspire menus
• Access to member directory, as well as assistance in identifying industry contacts by region, product and industry segment
• IFPA publications, webinars, and white papers, plus access to timely updates on food security, operations, supply chain logistics, nutrition policy, and more.
• Complimentary registration to the annual IFPA Foodservice Conference, Global Produce & Floral Show and potentially other conferences and events.

For more information about the K-12 School Foodservice Partner X-Change and other programs and resources for school foodservice operators, contact Andrew Marshall, Wholesale-Distributor Relations and External Partnerships at (202) 303-3407.

“I encourage all product suppliers who work with schools or wish to sell to this important customer to become more involved in the association and to encourage your school contacts to do the same,” said Lisa McNeece, Vice President of Foodservice. and Industrial Sales, Grimmway Farms. “Supporting healthy options for our youngest consumers in school is undoubtedly an investment in a vibrant future for our children and our industry.”

ABOUT MARTITA, I REMEMBER YOU/MARTITA, TE RECUERDO (Penguin Random House):
The acclaimed best-selling author of The House on Mango Street “is back with her first work of fiction in nearly a decade, a story of memory and friendship [and] the experiences endured by young women as immigrants around the world” (AP). In this masterfully written bilingual edition, a long-forgotten letter sparks a charged encounter with the past.

As a young woman, Corina left her Mexican family in Chicago to pursue her dream of becoming a writer in Parisian cafes. Instead, she spends her brief stay in the City of Lights running out of money and queuing with other immigrants to call home from a broken payphone. But months spent befriending beggar artists on the subway, sleeping on crowded floors, and tango-dancing at underground parties are lastingly enhanced by his intense friendships with Martita and Paola. Over the years, the three women scatter across three continents, losing touch and mind, until a rediscovered letter brings Corina’s days back to Paris with breathtaking immediacy.

Martita, I Remember You is a rare bottle from Sandra Cisneros’ own special reserve, preserving the smoke and sparkle of an exceptional year. Told with intimacy and searing tenderness, this tribute to the life-changing power of youthful friendship is Cisneros at its vintage best, in a beautiful bilingual edition.

Chronicle: Library elections, sale of rare & old books, Omar El Akkad on recent novels | Community https://www.annuaire770.info/chronicle-library-elections-sale-of-rare-old-books-omar-el-akkad-on-recent-novels-community/ Tue, 19 Apr 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://www.annuaire770.info/chronicle-library-elections-sale-of-rare-old-books-omar-el-akkad-on-recent-novels-community/ Let’s start with some reminders and announcements of upcoming events at the Camron Beach Library.

Let’s start with some reminders and announcements of upcoming events at the Camron Beach Library.

All library members who have paid their current dues (May 2021 through May 2022) should have received a packet containing a ballot, voter guide and return envelope for the election of officers and members of the Cannon Beach Library Board. The package also contains a membership renewal form for next year.

Library members vote for board members and members-at-large. This year, four candidates are returning for the four officer positions. There are six candidates vying for five general membership vacancies, three are returning and three are new candidates. The voter’s guide contains information about candidates.

Members who believe their dues have been paid but have not received a ballot should contact Office Manager Jen Dixon as soon as possible. Only ballots received at the library office by Friday, May 6 will be counted.

Library membership runs from May to May, which means now is the time for renewal. To save on postage, renewal forms have been included in this month’s council election package. Members can also save postage by renewing online at https://canonibeachlibrary.org/make-a-donation/

It’s also a great time to become a new library member, which is easy to do online. Individual membership dues are $10 per year per person. Becoming a library member is different from purchasing a library card, residents and visitors to the North Shore are encouraged to both become a library member and purchase a library card.

Members contribute to all facets of library operations and contribute to library decision-making, which includes electing board members and officers, serving on library committees, and deciding on volunteer activities at the library.

Members are invited to seven monthly brunch meetings held at the library each year, meetings which include guest speakers on topics of interest to residents and visitors to Cannon Beach, Tolovana Park and Arch Cape.

Members receive a monthly newsletter, notifications of events and functions, and the annual member directory. More valuable, members make new friends as they become more involved in their community and understand it better.

The Spring Art and Music Book Sale begins Friday, May 6 and ends Saturday, May 14, during regular library hours.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy great art and music books at great prices, especially when buying three books gets bibliophiles a fourth book for free.

The same four books for the price of three will apply during the Memorial Day Old and Rare Book Sale, Saturday, May 28 through Monday, May 30, and the Fourth of July Book Sale, Friday, July 1. , until Monday, July 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The sale will end at 4 p.m. on July 4.

Volunteers are especially needed to help with the July 4 sale, which will include lightly used books that have accumulated over the past three years. This should break all records for this traditional fundraising event that promises a lot of work and a lot of fun. Volunteers will serve as cashiers, baggers, table managers, sales assistants and restockers during this very big event.

On Wednesday, April 20 at 7 p.m., Marjorie MacQueen will lead Cannon Beach Reads members in a Zoom discussion of Bill Bryson’s “Notes from a Small Island.”

A previous column suggested that CB Reads could return to in-person meetings at the library. A survey of former reading group participants, however, showed little enthusiasm for returning to in-person discussions at this time.

The lackluster investigative result came after an April 2 Gridiron Club dinner party became another DC superspreader where at least 53 government officials, including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo and the California representative Adam Schiff have contracted Covid.

This news dampened my enthusiasm to find myself, even with everyone in masks, around a small table in the Cannon Beach library on a cold spring evening. Cannon Beach Reads will likely continue Zoom meetings for a few more months as the latest Covid surge passes.

The reading group welcomes new participants. If you’re interested, let me know via email (berntj@ohio.edu). You will be added to the group’s mailing list and receive invites to Zoom sessions in April and beyond.

Upcoming Cannon Beach Reads meetings will see Arthur Broten leading a discussion on George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” on May 18, Mary Lloyd leading the discussion on Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz’s “An Indigenous People’s History of the United States” on June 15, Phyllis Bernt will moderate the group discussion on “A Death in the Family” by James Agee on July 20 and Lila Wickham will lead a discussion on “Polio: An American Story” by David M. Oshinsky on August 17.

The library has just added a copy of “Polio”, new to the library although published in 2005, to its red shelf of important but neglected titles. It’s a narrative that today’s medical researchers, groping through miscommunication regarding their campaign against Covid, could have benefited from. Certainly, today’s scientists would recognize the downside of sending mixed messages to support false hopes of a magic panacea.

Oshinsky’s in-depth history of polio epidemics focuses primarily on those that occurred in the United States during the 20th century, particularly those following World War II and the journey of the middle class to communities safe and clean suburbs.

The mid-century polio epidemic that so frightened Americans who fled to the suburbs of crowded cities, filthy industries, inadequate housing, immigrants, unsuccessful farmers and transplants from the southern United States also left behind environmental conditions that provided infant immunity to the dreaded disease.

The most important focus of this truly formidable medical history is reflected in its long subtitle: “The crusade that mobilized the nation against the most feared disease of the 20th century.”

Oshinsky begins “Polio” with an ambitious Franklin Delano Roosevelt, born into the American aristocracy, contracting poliomyelitis in 1921.

This led to the future president buying Warm Springs as a polio clinic and establishing the Warm Springs Foundation in 1926 to support the search for a cure.

In 1938, FDR renamed its Polio Recovery Center the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. To support the NFIP and its extensive research program, Hollywood artist Eddie Cantor, a close friend of Roosevelt, met with a group of other artists to plan a fundraising campaign.

Cantor suggested the campaign be called “The March of Dimes,” a bit of a pun on the popular “March of Time” newsreels that predated major feature films in theaters. Cantor, along with Jack Benny, Bing Crosby, Rudy Valee, Edgar Bergen and other radio stars have launched “The March of Dimes” on their programs, suggesting that everyone from young children to corporate moguls are flooding the White House dime for polio research around January 30. , FDR’s birthday.

And almost all grateful Democrats did.

Ira T. Smith, who ran the White House Mailroom at the time, noted that daily letter volume normally averaged 5,000 letters. On the first day of the “March of Dimes” campaign, however, 30,000 letters arrived, 50,000 on the second day and 150,000 on the third day.

“We kept getting incredible numbers and the United States government almost shut down,” Smith claims, “because we couldn’t free up enough money, plus thousands of dollars in checks and small bills. It took four months before we cleared the debris.

Final result of this first “March of Dimes” campaign: 2,680,000 dimes and thousands of dollars in checks and small bills.

I still remember being given a card with slots to insert dimes for my elementary school “March of Dimes” reader and dutifully handing over a card full of dimes. Almost every student in my class of fifty did the same thing.

Between shaking parents for change and scouring the roads around Beaverton for returnable bottles, students at St. Cecelia Elementary School have provided around $400 for March of Dimes grants to dueling scientists , first $400,472 to Jonas Salk in 1953 for his killed virus vaccine and later millions to Albert Sabin for trials of his live virus vaccine.

In 1996, after the deaths of Sabin and Salk, all remaining cases of poliomyelitis were caused by the use of Sabin’s live virus vaccine. In 2000, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommended the exclusive use of Salk’s killed virus vaccine to absolutely eliminate poliomyelitis from the Western Hemisphere.

Despite contributions from Dr. Jonas Salk, the country’s most popular medical scientist, and Dr. Albert Sabin, the academy’s iconic polio researcher, neither received the Nobel Prize they both deserved. for allaying the global fear of polio. And almost eradicate the disease itself.
