**Randy Gardner photo**By Randy Gardner

What a turnaround the Olympics became in the world of hockey. I know they have been over for a while now but this is the first time I have had a chance to write about the bitter frustration that the US Men’s Hockey team faced as they were knocked out of the Olympics coming home with no medal at all.

Whether it’s Silver or Golden Tsunami, Growing Senior Base Has to Stay Active

Tom Amsel. pg 2jpgA Boomer’s Journal

By Tom Anselm

The Silver Tsunami…You may have heard  the term.  It refers to the historic, mind-boggling, record-breaking number of people who are now or will become seasoned citizens in the next few decades.  Now why it’s called Silver rather than Golden, since this is supposed to be The Golden years, has much to do with hair color.  So for me, it just as easily could be called The Balding Tsunami.

By Sandra Olmsted

Director George Clooney’s timely The Monument Men chronicles the real-life adventure of the American lead effort to save the cultural history of Europe as the Allied Forces pursued the retreating Nazi army across the continent. According to The Monuments Men Foundation website, the Monuments Men were a force of about 345 men and women representing thirteen nations who were mostly “museum directors, curators, art historians, artists, architects, and educators.

By Lisa Kampeter

If you’re like me, when you think of a rooster, you think of crowing.  You think of an annoying male chicken whose morning cry awakens even the heaviest of sleepers.   You may even think of him strutting his stuff, marking his territory.  Some may consider it romantic.  He stands guard protecting his flock, crowing loudly if predators approach.  I find it cocky, no pun intended.
