Getting older doesn't have to end a lifestyle

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 by The Press in Opinion

With the Lenten season upon us, I have heard folks discussing what they might give up between Ash Wednesday and Easter.

One man joked that as he has aged, he's had to give up so much, he has nothing left to sacrifice.

That comment brought to mind a couple in their 70s, friends of ours, who no longer travel because they say packing all their medications and medical devices is too much trouble.

Canes and braces, sleep apnea machines and glucose monitors make life easier...

Roxy Theater marquee damaged

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

The fabled Roxy Theatre's historic marquee, incurred structural damage on its north side recently.

The damage several weeks ago during a quick moving minor snow storm.

The day after the storm, theatre owner Rich Wolfe discovered a heavy round steel water cap lodged in a metal section of the marquee about 10 feet above the sidewalk. A few light bulbs were damaged due to the storm. Speculation exists as to how the cap, which weighs 3 or 4 pounds, ended up in the marquee.
