Being an ‘Elder’ Has

Advantages

Over Those Both

Younger and Older

By Tom AnselmTom Amsel. pg 2jpg

I am the oldest person in our immediate family, both sides. The Senior Member, so to speak. You may recall that Medicare and I became fast friends about ten months ago. And for the most part, it has been an amicable relationship. I don’t really need any supplemental plans, thank the Good Lord Above. Things are generally going well. One can only take it one day at a time, however, especially since my last birthday put me square into the ranks of “Elderly”, according to US Government parlance.

Cards Finding Magic With Upcoming Stars

It’s difficult to write an up to date column when the deadline is before the big game but is published after the game is over, but that’s where I stand on Tuesday. By the time you read this the Cards have either wrapped it up at home or facing a Game 5 in Los Angeles.

This month’s Dining Divas outing was not new to us. Well, the restaurant was new to us but not the location. Actually, the restaurant has been three different restaurants since the Divas first dined there. We went to Bemo’s in Cottleville (formerly Sherlock’s and Travena’s prior to that). Our fingers are crossed that this one works.

By Tom Anselm

On Tuesday, Sept. 2, we marked the official end of World War II. It was called VJ Day, for Victory over Japan. Victory over Europe, or VE Day was a few months earlier on May 8, 1945, to be exact. That war saw some 80,000,000 die, either as combatants, civilians, prisoners, or just because of their ethnicity. It was world 
barbarism at its worst, characterized by vicious hand-to-to hand combat, massive bombing, new weaponry, ethnic cleansing and ultimately, the first, and so far only, use of atomic power by one country against another.So far.

Can the Kurt Warner Story Be Repeated?

**Randy Gardner photo**By Randy Gardner

Can I start by saying, here we go again? By that, I mean the Rams are the unluckiest team in the league; they cannot catch a break. Thinking on the positive side could this be another Kurt Warner story because the pre-season events seem just the same. A lot of the similarities hold true all the way down to the direction that the team was going when the injury happened.
