I've noticed an increase in the number of buyers choosing to use their VA loan rather
than Conventional or FHA financing, both in age restricted and non-age restricted
communities. VA loans are largely misunderstood and do have some definite
benefits. Here are a few to consider:
1. The option to have no down payment (up to a loan amount of $484,350 in Nevada),
and for higher sales prices a down payment equal to 25% of the amount over $484,350
(up to $1,000,000!) This can help the buyer reserve cash for other expenses, including
fixing up the home after purchase.
2. More lenient loan requirements, with more flexibility on credit score and debt-toincome
ratios as compared to conventional loans.
3. No mortgage insurance is required, regardless of the down payment
amount. (Catch: there is a VA Funding Fee that gets applied to all VA loans - unless the
veteran has a service-connected disability.)
4. The closing costs are limited. There are only certain closing costs that can be charged
in connection with a VA loan, and the lender is also limited as to the maximum that can
be charged for certain fees.
5. Extra assistance with the appraisal of the home is allowed. If the VA appraiser is
having difficulty reaching a value at or above the proposed sales price, the veteran, their
lender, and their agent are given a 48 hour window in which they can provide additional
information that the appraiser may not have known about and therefore didn't include in
the home value initially.
VA loans area great option for many home buyers, and home sellers should NOT be
afraid to accept an offer involving a VA loan. VA loans developed a bit of a stigma
decades ago because home sellers used to be forced to pay a large amount of additional
costs for the buyers' loan if they accepted a VA buyer, but that is no longer the case. VA
loans can also be done in the same timeframe as a Conventional loan as well.
Just because you qualify for a VA loan doesn't mean it's your best option though. It's
important to look at all of your options before making a decision. For instance, if you
have a 740 or higher FICO score and are putting 20% or more down payment, you may be
better off with a Conventional loan. There are many factors to consider, so make sure
you understand your options before choosing what loan is right for you.

Just Hang Up
By: Dan Roberts / Roberts Rules
And you thought Congress was useless!” I
shouted to my Ladylove when I received the
press release. Nothing signifies the “value” of our
federal government then that bi-partisan Senate Resolution passed last
What’s that you say? You missed that news bulletin?
Our elected leaders, notwithstanding all the other problems facing
our country, took the time and effort to support the designation of May
15, 2019 as “National Senior Fraud Awareness Day.” The purpose:
To raise awareness about the increasing number of fraudulent schemes
targeting seniors in the United States.
I don’t know about my fellow seniors, but I feel safer…so long as I
don’t answer my telephone. For, like many of you, since I signed on to
the government’s “Do-Not-Call” registry I’ve been constantly receiving
unwanted sales and “robo” calls.
Let me be very clear: I never want my carpets cleaned (we don’t even
have carpets), my computer freed from unknown viruses, and most of
all, those drugs from 3 rd world countries.
Yes, I recognize that “we seniors” have been a growing target for
scams, but come on, how many times is it our own fault? Is there
anybody reading this who will have a conversation with an unknown
or unwanted salesperson?
The answer to all telephone scams: Hang up the phone. Hang up
the damn phone!
I have now begun the habit of letting all telephone calls go straight
to voice mail unless I recognize the caller ID name. Despite this new
practice, I have on occasion failed to follow my own advice.
There have been times (and even Rana is getting tired of my “lack
of maturity”) when I answer the phone with: “FBI, Nevada Office.”
The ironic part about my J. Edgar Hoover ruse was that my new best
friend “Joe” (and to be honest, I don’t believe that’s his real name)
from India or Pakistan or Afghanistan has any idea what FBI means as
he keeps offering me those cheaper alternative “blue pills.”
I also admit that if it wasn’t for my Rana, I might have fallen victim.
That was when I received a telephone call informing me that my
grandson was in a Mexico jail and immediately needed $1,000 for bail.
In my haste to collect the information for payment, my PILL
(partner in love & life), overheard what was going on. She gently held
my hand, told me not to panic and ever so tenderly whispered in my
ear that perhaps this was a scam – especially since I do not have any
“Maybe so” I told her but “I was able to get the bail reduced to
$500. Man, do I know how to negotiate!” Rana just shook her head,
took the receiver and hung up.
One last thing: Last month, my landline apparently had a heart
attack and died. Upon noticing the silence, I contacted Cox and two
days later they restored the telephone back to life. So help me, within 5
minutes after “back in service” I received a call.
I’m “finally” having my carpets cleaned next week but told my
“new best friend” that he should send his crew to my other home – in

Nostalgic Trio Returns
By: Sam Wagmeister / People & Places
Making your way in the world today
takes everything you’ve got; Sometimes
you want to go where everybody knows your
That abbreviated version of the Cheers theme greeted viewers of the
popular television show. The message still echoes. Sometimes we seek
comfort in what once was familiar.
February 2019. An audience of nearly 200 at Sun City MacDonald
Ranch were treated to a nostalgic trip back in time. With The Vegas
Voice variety show already tightly scheduled, producer Evan Davis
squeezed in three songs by a new-old trio.
It was new in that it was the first performance ever for the Folk
Legacy Trio. And old in the respect that Rick Dougherty, George
Grove and Jerry Siggins, sported a golden pedigree of concerts,
television appearances, and Billboard Top 100 albums that recalled
memories of granny glasses, tab collar shirts and lava lamps.
Each song drew thunderous applause and ended with the appreciative
audience’s standing shouts for “More!” The Vegas Voice complied by
scheduling an “encore” performance for the group on Saturday, June
22 nd .
1958 - In an industry where success is rare, the Kingston Trio
became superstars. Their road to musical history began with their first
album in 1958 that featured “Tom Dooley.”
Their subsequent album hit Number Two on Billboard’s Charts;
four more records reached
Number One over the next
two years. Three 1960
albums dominated the list
for 20 weeks earning the
Kingston Trio an everlasting
place in musical history.
As with many successful,
long-lived musical groups,
members transition in and
out. But for two of those singers who performed that February night
in MacDonald Ranch, the Kingston Trio had become a home of sorts.
2017 - I Have an Idea: It was a long ride to the next show. Rick
Dougherty and George Grove were silent, travelling the highway
to Asheville, NC, contemplating what lay ahead. Grove turned to
Dougherty and said, “I’m not ready to give up singing. Are you?”
The license to the Kingston Trio name had been sold and, as in
many other business ventures, changes loomed. Dougherty joined the
group 12 years earlier after having replaced Glenn Yarborough in the
Grove strummed guitar and folk banjo player for the Kingston Trio
for 41 years. For them, Ashville would be their final show.
Dougherty wasn’t ready to stop singing either. “I have an idea,”
Grove said. Just as they were the foundation for the Kingston Trio, they
would fill the same roles for their new Folk Legacy Trio.
“We really need a third voice to get the harmonies together,”
Dougherty realized. Their challenge was, “finding somebody to play
music that’s 50-60 years old and knew how to live on the road,” he later
recalled. “We had to find that special ring, the X factor,” Grove added.
2018 - The Search Begins: Familiar folk names trekked to Grove’s
home as they sought the right fit. Grove’s friend, Bobby Poynton, a 13-
year veteran of The Lettermen, recommended former bandmate Jerry
Poynton and Siggins toured together with The Diamonds, the group
that charted “Little Darlin’” and “The Stroll” in America’s Top 10.
Dougherty and Grove headed to Palm Springs to catch Siggins in
a show with The Diamonds. “We wanted to see how he worked with a
group,” Dougherty remembered. After a one-song audition, Dougherty
and Grove knew they had a trio. “It rang so clear,” Dougherty said.
The three men put together set lists, practiced, harmonized and
rehearsed. They planned to pay tribute to many contributors to the folk
June 2019: Siggins acknowledges that evolution has thinned the
folk music audience but not their enthusiasm. “Folk music takes our
audience back to another, simpler time. Our group is about friendship.
Audiences sense that we’re having a good time and want to be a part

Happy 100th Mr. Showmanship
By: Yvonne Cloutier / Musical Moments
This musical genius, Wladzius Valentino
Liberace, was known simply as Liberace.
Lee to friends and Walter to family.
Liberace was a showman, a gifted pianist and at the time, the highest
paid entertainer in the world. His music was significant in that he cleverly
combined classical music with pop music, keeping the classical styling.
His comment was not having to run to the bank anymore, he bought
it. His flamboyant lifestyle, flashy stage appearances earned him the
nickname, Mr. Showmanship.
Liberace was born 100 years ago, May 16th, of an Italian immigrant
father and a Polish descent mother. It was a musical home. His father
played French Horn and saw to it that his children attended a variety of
George, a violinist,
with his orchestra.
He had another
brother and sister.
At 4, Liberace
could hear most
songs, then play
them on the piano.
At 8, after attending a piano concert by Paderewski, he decided that was
the path he wanted.
During the Great Depression, he helped with family finances,
performing in cabarets and strip clubs. By 20, he performed Liszt’s 2nd
Piano Concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra; starting a 40
year career of piano concerts, acting, and TV performances.
Liberace was a gifted entertainer. He arranged the pop song, Three
Little Fishes, into a semi-classical style that became his trademark.
His entrances and exits were full of smiles, happiness and good taste.
Liberace was glam, glitter and fashion - as was his music. His costumes
were exotically ostentatious with jewels and flashy rings on his fingers.
He entered the stage in an expensive car, wearing long, heavy fur capes.
Always present on his custom-made piano was a candelabrum.
Audiences and other musicians loved him.
He established a flamboyant concert residence and museum in Las
Vegas where everything was piano-themed. Even his swimming pool
was shaped like a grand piano.
He sold over 400,000 albums. His biggest single hit - Ave Maria sold
In 1985, Liberace tested positive for Acquired Immune Deficiency
Disease (AIDS), keeping it secret until death on February 4, 1987 at
67 - never seeking medical help.

Moe Norman - Part I
By: Mike Landry / Golf Fore Ever
One day while practicing before my tee time
at a golf facility, I noticed a golfer next to
me had a huge bucket of balls (must have been
500 balls) and was hitting one right after another.
I said to him you’re going to wear yourself out.
This opened a conversation and he asked me if I knew of Moe
Norman to which I replied that I hadn’t heard of him. So he began
to tell me that Moe Norman was a past Canadian Amateur champion
- probably the greatest ball striker of all times and was known to hit at
least 800 balls each day.
So I decided to do some research on Moe Norman and I was amazed
at what I found and decided to bring you his story. This cannot be done
in one article, so this month I’ll discuss his “Achievements” and next
month the human story of Moe Norman.
Moe Norman’s Achievements: Born Murray Irwin Norman in
Ontario, Canada in 1929, he died in 2004 at age 74. In his youth, Moe
(as he was nicknamed) was a pin setter in a bowling alley earning 10
cents per hour.
He got interested in golf at an early age and worked as a caddie so
he could earn some money and gain access to the practice facility. Moe
was known to hit 800 balls per day. It was said that one day he hit over
2,800 golf balls in 7 hours.
Before age 26 he won two Canadian Amateur Championships. In
1956 and 1957 Moe received invitations from Bobby Jones to play in
In 1959 he joined the PGA tour and played in 12 events finishing
4 th in his last round. Moe returned to Canada where he went on to win
50 titles, shot 59 three times, had 9 double eagles and 17 holes in one.
There is a lot more to this story. Next month, I’ll describe the human
side of Moe Norman which is fascinating.

thought I’d write this month about the time I
I was cast in General Electric Theatre. This was
a popular TV show from 1953-1962.
In 1956 it was in the top ten in the Nielsen
ratings and the host of the program was none other than Ronald
Reagan; though he didn’t appear in every episode other than as the
host. It was a weekly half hour show with different guest stars each week
and was typically an adaptation of a short story, novel or magazine
I was cast in a 1956 episode called “The Road that Led Afar” and the
guest stars were Dan Duryea and Piper Laurie. That’s me in the photo,
second from left standing next to Dan Duryea. He played a widower
raising four children who then falls for a young girl portrayed by Piper
Laurie (sitting in the chair.)
Piper will best be remembered for her Oscar nominated performance
in “The Hustler” with Paul Newman as well as another Oscar nominated
role in the horror film “Carrie.”
Now here’s an interesting little tidbit: In her 2011 autobiography,
Laurie stated that she lost her virginity to Ronald Reagan when he was
in his 40s and she was in her teens. Ah, Hollywood!
Dan Duryea was best known for his “villainous roles” - especially
for being mean to woman; sometimes even slapping them in films. In
real life however, he was a one-woman man, having been married to
his wife for 35 years.
Duryea was known
for his temper but had
been quoted as saying
“once a scoundrel,
always a scoundrel”
referring of course to
his many evil roles.
As for me, and as I’ve
said in past columns,
I was really too young
to have a clue as to
whom Dan Duryea and
Piper Laurie were - not
to mention Ronald
Reagan. Who would
have ever known at
the time that Reagan
would one day be our President!
My only recollection of the three of them is how very nice they were
to me and how much I enjoyed working with them.
Until next time, remember: Each day comes bearing its gifts -
remember to untie the ribbons.

Two weeks later, on Saturday June 22nd at 7pm, we return to Sun
City MacDonald Ranch with the “FOLK LEGACY TRIO.” Songs from the
great Folk Era performed by Rick Dougherty (Limeliters and Kingston
Trio), Jerry Siggins (lead singer with the Diamonds) and George Grove

much around town. How’s this: Dispensary Lounge (Friday & Saturday
night and occasionally Wednesday evenings); German American Club
on Tuesdays, Fiesta Mexicana Restaurant on Wednesdays, and The
Golden Tiki on Thursdays. Shall I continue?

These men in prison tend to be laconic, tormented, tattooed,

Casino names have long referenced Ancient
Rome, the Renaissance, New York City and
other pinnacles of intellectual sophistication.
Now, it seems, Las Vegas is becoming one of those cosmopolitan places.
As of this year, no less than The New York Times has declared this city
a budding artistic hub and burgeoning literary mecca.
I cannot help but be happy about this. Reading tops my list of favored
pastimes, even before fault-finding, synonym-hunting (gripe, grouse,
kvetch, whine), moving furniture and walking my dogs.
Given my background in writing and teaching, books are always
on my table and often on my mind. All the more so given a recent
foray into a stunning estate sale from somebody’s lifetime of reading; a
legacy offering up entire libraries of the American West, the World Wars,
U.S. presidents, travel, the law, mystery, science fiction, contemporary
politics, and more.
There’s a Note for That
By: Adrea Nairne-Barrera / 60s to 60
If they stopped making post-it notes, my life
would come to a screeching halt. I make sure
there are little pads everywhere or my life will be
I think of things, write them immediately and move on. Kitchen,
bathrooms, in front of the TV, desk, etc. All have stickies to tell me what
TV throws ideas at you, but the next day you can’t recall what movie
you wanted to see or the 800 number for that non-stick wonder pan.
Have no fear, there’s a note for that!
There are even goofy songs about post-it notes on UTube. Who knew?
I was once a very accomplished multi-tasker and could keep track of
all my business and personal obligations. Birthdays, anniversaries and
dates flashed in my head whenever needed. Now there are small little
tugs telling me something is due, but I can’t recall it clearly, so I figure
that will just resolve itself later.
Some people don’t know the value of a post-it note. They use their
phones for all reminders. Since I’m not too skilled at my phone, I still
need the note.
This was largely an adult collection with all its dystopian concerns.
It occurs to me that children’s versions of dystopia turn out okay: Alice
comes tumbling back from the looking-glass world to a reassuring,
if more boring, state of being. Even in the young-adult variant, those
who don’t die live happily ever after - having surmounted Hunger
Games horrors, heroine Katniss gets married and has her own kids.
For the grown-ups, the grim visions endure. The protagonist of
Orwell’s 1984 dies just as he comes to total acceptance of Big Brother’s
rule. Books and civilization are firebombed into oblivion in Ray
Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, leaving a band of survivors struggling to
retain literary memories.
Just stories, you may say. But the mindset fueling literary apocalypse
seems to have escaped the covers. At the highest levels, falsehood
supplants truth on a daily basis, turning reality inside-out and upsidedown.
We owe it to the kids to halt this nonsense – with a happy ending.
Meanwhile, we need to save books and ideas from the bonfires.
At that estate sale, I found an inaugural edition of JFK’s Profiles

Kennedy’s time in the White House. Surely worth their weight in, yes,

It’s reliable and not subject to power outages, battery failures or
technological complications. And what if the phone autocorrects your
note and you do the wrong thing?
I’ve advanced from refrigerator notes to stickies. Unfortunately, the
fridge has too many magnets of things that are too cute to take down.
There’s no room for more.
I can stick a note to the cart in the grocery store right over the face
of the guy staring at me from the child seat. And stick it on my old desk
telephone reminding me to call someone. And on the pile of bills to be
paid when I think of it.
They invent flying cars, home smart systems and all sorts of things
these days. But for us humans, simplicity and low stress works best.
If I have my little yellow note, I will accomplish all my tasks, add
checkmarks, throw the note away and relax.
Make a note of that!

Corruption Running Amuck!

that everyone is entitled to make a living. Well, yes, but at the public
expense and at the exact same place he left in disgrace?

“Reach, Grasp and Release Activities” claims Julie Foster R.N. “And one
of those is picking up dozens of teeny items from a tray.”
You can imitate that exercise and improve your hand mobility on
your own at home. It will also be much more enjoyable by playing with
jigsaws. As you pick up and place 500 pieces in a puzzle, your fingers
will gradually become more flexible.
The goal is to have your thumb able to reach the crease at the base
of your pinky. Plus all fingertips bending to touch the fleshy part at the
lower side of your thumb.
Thereafter you’ll probably be able to hold objects tighter, the
sensitivity in your fingertips will improve and you’ll cease having
objects slipping out of your hands.

Getting Ready for the Summer
By: Linda Bateman-Gomez / Timeless Beauty
Summer is around the corner and it’s my
favorite time of the year! I love the heat, the
longer days, and the fact that my grandchildren
are out of school and get to stay with me.
What I don’t love is the many years I spent enjoying my younger
summers by frying to a nice golden brown with the help of all that baby
oil and iodine. If I could turn back time I would, but now I must face
the consequences and be more cautious.
As an early season reminder, for those of you that also indulged back
in the day, start your summer with a visit to your Dermatologist for a
mole and body check. Having had one Mohs surgery, I find myself on
a regular appointment schedule now and it’s definitely worth the time!
One of the first questions your doc is going to ask: Are you faithfully
wearing your sunscreen? This time of the year is especially important
because we simply spend more time outdoors.
Swimming, BBQ’s and patio dining all call for precaution. The La
Roche-Posay line is my go-to sunscreen that was recommended by my
dermatologist. They are expensive but have several options to choose
from and are good for sensitive skin.
They even have a tinted sunscreen which is a unique option. But if
you have a favorite, great. The key is to find something that you like
and will actually make a habit of using every day.
While sunscreens are obviously a must, for something extra fun, I’ve
recently discovered how great hats can be added to a wardrobe! Last year I

attended the Kentucky Derby for the first time and bought several, not
knowing what to expect. Ever since then I’ve found myself wearing
them to outside events and am surprised how stylish and functional
they are at blocking the sun and wind.
The biggest drawback with a hat is once it’s on, removing it can often
leave your forehead with a line and a flattened hairdo. There are two
quick fixes, however, should your party go into the evening when you’ll
want to remove your new accessory.
1. When choosing your hat, pick a lightweight one, one that will not
feel cumbersome. The inside band should be soft and wide, it will be
less irritating on your forehead. You can also add a soft strip of fabric to
the inside of your hat if it does not have one already.
2. Gather the top section (crown) of your hair and clip or bobby pin
it on top of your head. When you are ready to remove your hat, remove
the pins and your hair will not be flattened down.
So, enjoy your outdoor gathering, protect yourself from those aging
effects of the sun, and look even more chic doing it!

Cutting Etheric Cords
By: Ali Guggenheim / Psychic Phenomenon
Most everybody has heard the phrase, it’s time
to cut the cord, meaning, to set whomever
free. But what if I told you that there are actual
energetic cords that bind us with the people and
even objects associated with us? Or, that when a cord is left un-severed
after a relationship has ended, it continues to play havoc in your life?
It’s true! Much like the umbilical cord that connects mother and
child, an etheric cord binds you to every relationship you experience
through a high frequency of communication. Like “etheric hoses”
these cords are what enable the telepathic thoughts and emotional
exchanges to continue - even when they’re no longer needed or wanted.
“When the cord is healthy, it can create a vibrant, energetic source
exchange, but when the cord is unhealthy, it can often lead to feeling
controlled or drained in energy,” explains Doreen Virtue. “Intuitively
we can gauge how strong our connection is with another by realizing
how often we think of them and how it makes us feel.”
A good indication for the need to “cut the cord” is “when feeling
a strong psychic connection to someone that is draining your energy,
and from any unhealthy, negative, obsessive, or addictive behaviors.
Letting go will help you recharge your energy, feel a sense of peace and
can help you bring about new, positive opportunities,” claims Doreen
The best way to come to closure in a past relationship that no longer
serves you is to rid yourself of the old baggage that’s keeping you in
a perpetual state of sadness and saps your energy, advises Madison of
A simple cord cutting ritual:
1. Relax in an undisturbed, quiet place and set your strong intention.
2. Close your eyes and take some deep breaths as you call upon your
3. In your own words, ask for guidance, releasing the unwanted cords
with gratitude, love, light and positive attention, when you visualize the
cord being cut.
4. Afterwards, drink plenty of water.
You should feel at peace, energized, lighter, and balanced.

To Qualify for a Reverse Mortgage & Reverse Mortgage for Purchase
By: Nick Flores / Loan Educator
Qualifications: In order to qualify for a
Reverse Mortgage one of you must be 62+.
Your spouse can be as young as 18. However, the
spouse who is younger than 62 will be a “non-borrowing” spouse on
the loan and will still be on the Title of the home while maintaining the
same benefits of a Reverse Mortgage.
You can own multiple homes, but the home with the Reverse
Mortgage must be your primary home and your home can be paid for
or not. A lot of people tell me they did not think they could do a Reverse
Mortgage because they had a mortgage on their house.
Many people who do a Reverse mortgage have a mortgage on their
house. It is becoming more and more common.
The home can be a detached property, attached property, condo,
townhome or manufactured home. All these properties fit the singlefamily
residence requirement of the Housing Urban Development
Reverse Mortgage used for Purchase: You may also use the
Reverse Mortgage for purchase of a new primary residence.
Typically, in order not to have a mortgage payment, you would pay
cash for a home. With a Reverse Mortgage for purchase, in most cases,
the down payment requirement is 40% down.
This will allow you to keep the remaining liquid cash in your bank
account to save, reinvest, or to enjoy vacations. The Reverse Mortgage
for purchase will never require a mortgage payment.
The Reverse Mortgage for purchase can also be used to buy a duplex,
triplex or fourplex. You must live in one of the units, because remember,
the property needs to be your primary residence, but you can rent out
the other units to supplement your retirement income.
It’s a wonderful strategy. Call us now so you can get the facts straight

One of the most important items on your
vehicle are the ones you probably think
about least: tires. You might argue that the
engine, or in Las Vegas, the air conditioner take priority, but without
tires, you’ll still be sitting in your garage.
Making sure your tires are properly cared for is mandatory. Are they
under inflated? Over inflated?
Do they have enough tread? Are there bulges? Do you even have the
correct tire/size for your vehicle?
It’s important to conduct regular maintenance on that rubber,
especially as we get into the hot summer months. Tire air pressure
increases as the temperature rises.
For every 10 degrees Fahrenheit, tire pressure increases by one pound
per square inch (psi). For the majority of tires, a normal psi reading is
usually between 30-35 psi.
Air temperature isn’t the only heat affecting a tire. As you drive down
the road, the tires hitting the road generate friction, and friction causes
heat, which also increases tire temperature.
I won’t get into molecules and rubber polymers here, but remember
that a tire, like a balloon, will let go when it over expands. And anyone

We grow older – that’s the good news!
But one of the prices we pay as we age is
increased auto insurance rates.
There are many factors that insurance
companies use to determine their rating “model.” A partial list consists
of type and use of vehicle, credit scoring, zip code and age of driver.
It should not surprise you that the highest rates are for the age group
16-19 years. These drivers create the highest risk and they pay the most.
It’s all based on statistics compiled over years of data collection
(called Actuarial Tables). Insurance companies typically use 1,000,000
driven miles for every category to eliminate as much bias as possible.
Rates do decrease with increased age. Back in “the day” you had
to wait until age 25 to see the decrease, but in this information age,
companies can get data for every age and many lower rates for every
2-3 years of experience.
Some information about senior drivers:
1. In 2016 there were 42 million drivers 65 and over of which almost
30 million had licenses representing 12% of all drivers in the US.
2. In 2016 7,400 senior drivers were killed and 290,000 were treated
in emergency rooms – that’s 20 killed and 794 injured every day. And
these were just the injuries reported.
3. Those 70+ drive 45% fewer miles than those aged 35-54.
4. Those age 65+ self-limit their driving with fewer trips, shorter
distances and tend to limit night driving or interstate driving.

pressure; it’s usually listed on
the driver-side door jamb. Test your tires when they are cool.
If you test them after driving, remember that a hot tire usually will
read about four psi higher, so take that into consideration. Keep your
tires inflated to the manufacturer numbers.
Check your tread wear. If it’s low, replace the tire. Pay attention to
load weight. If you’re going on a trip, overloading your vehicle can
overheat the tires as well.
Check for any bulges, nails, or rocks. If you don’t have roadside
assistance, keep a pair of gloves and a trash bag in the car in case you

Senior drivers might
more easily miss road
signs and have slower
reaction times. Plus they
tend to be more physically fragile.
Based solely on accumulated data, it has been determined that
seniors’ crash involvement rates begin to rise at age 70 and jump
dramatically at 80. However, it’s not until 85 that their crash rates
surpass the teens.
Each company uses its own statistics – they have millions of
customers and claim experience for every age group, plus they can use
national information shared by many companies. But it is safe to say
that the first auto policy renewal you receive after age 65, 70, 75, 80 and
85+ will be higher than the previous term.
Every 2-3 years, it would be prudent to “shop” your insurance. Some
companies are totally non-competitive when pricing seniors, yet others

higher rates than you had when you were in the safest group of 35-64
but it could save you hundreds of dollars every year.

Planting & Growing Palm Trees
By: Howard Galin / Happy Gardening
Although many of us associate palm trees
with our deserts, the fact is that there are no
native palm trees that are indigenous to Nevada.
Therefore, we have to take appropriate steps when planting and growing
these trees to insure their well-being.
Before purchasing your palm trees, there are several questions you
should consider. Will the tree fit into your landscaping and property -
not only now, but in the future? Remember palms grow both tall and
wide so plan ahead!
Keep in mind that our region experiences strong windstorms in the
early spring. Will your palms pose a falling hazard to your home and
Make sure there is sufficient space between the planting site and
buildings and structures. How much sun exposure will the palm tree
get? Not all palms require or tolerate long periods of sunlight.
Some trees that are commonly referred to as palm trees (like the
Sago Palm) are not really palm trees at all and require far less sun and
milder winter temperatures to survive. Therefore, do your research as to
which trees will thrive in your selected locations.
Once you have selected your tree and it is delivered, make sure that it
is properly planted. The hole dug should be at least twice the diameter
of the root ball.
Before planting, you should fill the hole with water to check the
rate of drainage

air pockets. Poor

plants and trees,
it is best to plant
palms in late
June through early September when the weather is hot and the soil is
warm. This will help to stimulate rapid root growth.
Make sure there are adequate number of irrigation drips placed
near to the outer borders of where the root ball was planted. A mature
palm tree can require about 20 gallons of water daily to flourish so it is
necessary to provide for this.
Fertilize your palms with moderate amounts of nitrogen and
potassium only when the soil temperature reaches 70 F or above so
that the roots will be ready to absorb the nutrients.

The other day during my Zumba classes, I
was asked by one of my students, how to
keep our brain active. Well, I thought about it and
just answered what I normally do (at age 74!).
First of all, exercise, exercise, exercise! Yes, whether it is walking or
taking classes or any activity that keeps the heart pumping is good. I
work/exercise a little each day.
If it’s not teaching Zumba classes, then it’s a dance or fall prevention/
balance class. It’s become such a way of life for me over these several
years, that I just do it.
Second, plenty of sleep; whatever you feel you need. Some don’t
need 7-8 hours of sleep, but that seems to be the rule of thumb. Your
body needs that time to rejuvenate your normal cells.
Third, a good healthy diet. Eating properly every day also helps to
rejuvenate those cells and keeps the brain active.
Fourth, stimulating the brain - either crosswords puzzles, or
anything that makes you “think” is an additional help for brain
health. Studies have shown that “brain work” helps to slow down and
sometimes even prevent Alzheimers or Dementia.
Fifth - Lots of water! Yes, a rule of thumb is to take your normal
weight (no lying here!) and divide it by two. That is the normal amount

The energy the cells use is called ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). ATP
is made in the cell by a structure called a mitochondria. The amount of
ATP a mitochondria makes can vary.
Mitochondria can make a lot of ATP, giving the cell all it needs to
function and heal if diseased or damaged. Mitochondria can also be
very limited in the amount of ATP they make.
This disallows a cell to function at an optimal level and may prevent
a diseased or damaged cell from recovering. Research is beginning to

And last, but not least, Rest. Take the time to “smell the flowers!”
Each morning I take a few minutes to be thankful for waking up! Each
day is a new day to start fresh!
Take advantage of it. I am thankful for my jobs, home, fur babies,
friends, family and good health.
POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND HAPPY HEALTH TO ALL!

We had a friend over for dinner last night,
Michelle, who’s a hoot, and has these great
family-life stories. We had a couple of Margaritas,
and then over her second glass of wine, she told
us about her husband’s dog, Bubba. (In fact, her husband, Bob, doesn’t
know the whole story himself, and she’s not sure I should publish it,
because she doesn’t want him to hear it “on the streets.” I convinced
her you’d keep it quiet.)
Bubba was old and very sick, and although he had been her husband,
Bob’s dog, Michelle had, of course, been taking care of him because she
was at home with two little ones and had “nothing else to do.” Michelle
fed him, walked him, and when he became, as one of my students
called it, “incompetent” she cleaned up after him, sometimes as much
as six times a day…and Bubba was a big dog.
Then, he developed a brain tumor and started having seizures, which
exacerbated the “incompetence”, but Bob just couldn’t bear even to talk
about putting him to sleep. Bubba was taking multiple medications,
and the lure of an overdose beckoned Michelle occasionally, but she
Finally, one morning Michelle went into Bubba’s room and found
him on his pillow, gone to doggy heaven. She sat down and cried a
little, petting him one last time.
She didn’t want to tell the children, but she told Bob, who was hit
hard and couldn’t even look at Bubba. He told Michelle he was really

Michelle called the vet, who told her it would cost $100 to cremate
Bubba and another $60 to bring the ashes back to her. She said they’d
just bury him.
That night, Bob went out to dig a hole for Bubba’s grave, but the
ground was rock hard. It was mid-February…in the mountains. No
way to bury Bubba.
Next day, Michelle got 2 trash bags, went to Bubba’s room, and
somehow wrestled a large deceased canine in a state of…well,
advanced stiffness…into the trash bags, and then she called Bob, who
– still unable actually to look at Bubba - helped her carry the bagged
body upstairs to the back of her Chevy Tahoe. He then told her to do
whatever she had to do, just not to tell him about it.
So, Michelle buckled her clueless 2-and-3-year-old boys into their car
seats, and called Elvis, down at the dump.
Now, Elvis isn’t his real name, but his beloved nickname. He wears
his hair like Elvis, clothes like Elvis, talks the way Elvis talked, and is
the grandmaster of Elvis trivia. When Elvis isn’t at the dump, which
is only his part-time career, he’s at the Baptist church down the road.
Michelle called Elvis and asked if he could help her do this thing
discreetly because of the children. He assured her he could.
When they arrived, Michelle left the boys in their car seats and hailed
Elvis, who acknowledged with a solemn nod of his head, climbed into
his giant front-loader and drove up to the back of the Tahoe. Michelle
opened the back door and Elvis put the scoop right up to it.
Then the two of them heaved the bagged body over the rim of the car
and into the scooper…but, as it rolled, the trash bags slipped off at the
same moment the boys unsnapped their own seat buckles and turned
Michelle yelled, “Faces forward, boys! Faces forward!” But, it was
The boys had seen Bubba and began crying and wailing, “Don’t
throw him away yet, he’s still good!”
Sad but resigned, Elvis looked at the thoroughly defeated Michelle
and said, in a complete deadpan, “Well, ma’am, seems the cat’s out of
the bag…so to speak.”

The Busiest Time of Year

Summertime. For our travel agency, it’s the
busiest time of year. When school is out and
teachers aren’t teaching, that’s when the most
For most of our Vegas Voyagers, I know this concept doesn’t apply to
the “retirement” community. You can travel just about any time you
For our Vegas Voyagers, we really don’t schedule trips during the busy
travel periods like the summertime, Christmas or Easter. However, for
our younger, (families with school age children), which is a large part
of our travel agency business, we are very busy this time of year.
Apart from group travel (like the Vegas Voyagers trips) we specialize
in planning detailed trips all over the world for individual families. For
example, over the next three months we are planning trips for families
who are going to Italy, Spain, Hawaii, the Baltic countries and the
We meet with all of these families, get their dream vacation desires,
review dates of travel and then put together the trip they have in their
mind’s eye. Then, usually after numerous emails and phone calls, we
sculpt the final trip details. In every possible way, we always want to
make sure that the vacation we helped to plan is the exact vacation our
clients have contemplated.
And I must say, that based on the comments we get when folks return
from their vacation, we do a very good job. At the core, we never forget
that we are making memories for all that we work with. This is true of
our Vegas Voyager plans as well.
Please remember that we can help our individual Vegas Voyager
members plan their own trips. And they will be as memorable as all the
Vegas Voyager group trips we have planned over the last 15 plus years.
Please feel free to call us at 800/698-1101 so we can help you plan
any dream vacation you are considering. Happy Adventures to all.

The Oregon National
By: Kathy Manney / Around Our World
If you read my March column you learned
“thousands of pioneers with dreams of riches
made the perilous trip to the Oregon Territory. Their determination
and willingness to endure hardship set western territory expansion into
motion. This year Oregon celebrates 160-years of statehood.”
Early pioneers chose Conestoga wagons known as the “prairie
schooner,” which proved unwieldy. A smaller wagon, four by ten feet,
was designed with boards caulked with tar, allowing the wagons to
float across rivers and streams.
Lacking suspension, once
wagons creaked into motion the
journey was rough.
Many families brought
milking animals. After morning
milking, the milk bucket was
hung on the wagon’s side. With
continuous rocking the creamrich
milk churned into butter
by day’s end.
Starting in Independence,
Missouri the Oregon Trail
averaged 2,400 miles. The settlers, prepared to set down roots in the
untamed wilderness, encountered a trail sign their first day, “You are
now leaving the United States and entering the Great American Desert.”
They would cross mountains and swollen waterways with wagons
carrying their possessions. Bad axles and river crossings destroyed
many wagons and soon the trail was littered with cast offs as families
lightened their loads.
Wagons ground deep groves into the earth. Ruts so deep in places
little grows on them today. The states that pioneer trails traveled still
have these grooves as reminder of how persevering the pioneers were.
Death was a part of going west. Thousands died while traveling the
Trail. Disease or accidents were the common cause; many also drowned
crossing swollen tributaries.
Movies frequently portray Indians as hostile toward wagon trains,
when in fact early wagon trains were often aided by helpful skills of the
Pawnee and Shoshone tribes and their ability to lead the wagons safely
across the Trail.
The transcontinental railroad connecting east to west in 1869
lessened migration by wagon. Before then, the Oregon Trail stood as the
only major route from St. Louis to merchant and settlement prospects
in the American West.
Congress officially named the route the Oregon National Historic Trail
in 1978. Though much of the trail has been built over, approximately
300 miles has been preserved and ruts made from wagon wheels are
visible in some places.

Tea for One?
By: Crystal Merryman-Sarbacker /
Out & About
Often, a frustrating problem for a single
senior is finding a suitable travel partner.
It’s not easy to find someone with whom you are willing to share a
soggy bathmat and a blaring TV that’s so loud you might miss the
captain’s intercom announcements to abandon ship.
But a would be vacationer who doesn’t have an acceptable travel
buddy lined up is faced with double rates and inflated fees to cover
the lost revenues of travel suppliers who are trying to make up for
an empty bed in the room. For many singles, this situation is so
discouraging, they simply put their dreams on hold.
But there are some signs of improvement and travel companies are
actually getting interested in offering affordable single accommodations.
Large cruise ship lines, like Norwegian and Royal Caribbean, are
now actively trying to appeal to solo travelers by offering staterooms
designed for one person. These accommodations are not spacious.
But it’s amazing what a carefully placed wall mirror and a porthole
looking out at the ship’s public areas can do.
And to add to the fun, cruise lines like Holland America and even the
luxurious Silversea may schedule “singles only” events and lounges
which hold out the possibility of meeting someone special. After all,
some relationships have started with less than that.
While major cruise lines are trying to decide how much of their
efforts to direct to the singles market, there are travel companies which
are already focusing in a big way on solitary travelers.
One of the largest and most active is SinglesCruise.com, which has
been offering at least a dozen group vacations each year since 1991.
A variety of destinations with special themes and events are listed on
And cruises are offered for different age groups, with the over 40
bunch being the most age appropriate for seniors. This company builds
anticipation for their travelers through custom “getting to know you”
websites, so the excitement starts as soon as you sign up.
Most staterooms are doubles, but if you’re not traveling with a friend,
they’ll select a roommate for you who won’t complain about the soggy
bathmat. Who knew it could be that easy!

Steve McQueen & William Lucking
By: Morris Heldt / A Senior’s P.O.V.
What did Steve McQueen and William
Lucking, aka Piney Winston, from
the popular TV series Sons of Anarchy have in
common? Cannot be their height; Lucking is six-feet five and McQueen
was about five-feet eleven.
Cannot be their age; McQueen was born in 1930 and Lucking 1941.
Education? Lucking graduated from UCLA, English and Theatre major
and McQueen graduated from the University of Hard Knocks
McQueen was a “things” person and loved machinery and being able
to understand it and control it - especially flying old biplanes. Lucking
appreciates machinery and enjoys the comfort they bring, but he is
more cerebral, exploring the thoughts and the actions of his fellow
man and then expressing them through his writing.
So, with two totally diverse individuals what were the things they
had in common? Steve McQueen portrayed one of the leading seven
actors in the classic 1960 “The Magnificent Seven” with what became
an all-star cast and William Lucking played one of the seven in a sequel
filmed in 1972 “The Magnificent Seven Ride.”
Another shared experience these two actors had were in the late
1970s they both chose the small quaint community of Santa Paula,
California to live. McQueen purchased an airplane hangar at the Santa
Paula airport and then a small ranch. Lucking bought a very large old
beautifully built house and began renovating it.
Lucking, while working in movies and
episodic television and making a nice
living as an actor, (including starring
in the CBS TV series, The Outlaws) and
McQueen, who was known all over the
world and was indeed a movie star both
chose Santa Paula for the same reason.
They both enjoyed living with the locals
and not the Hollywood elite. I always
found it strange that these two very
successful actors never met.
When I asked William why he never walked
over to meet McQueen, he replied, “I didn’t
know why he moved to Santa Paula, but I
moved there to be around regular people and
to get away from Hollywood. I gave him that
respect and stayed in my own neighborhood.”
William Lucking now lives in the Las Vegas
Valley with his wife, Sigrid. I am proud to
have known him and been a writing partner
of his for close to 30 years.
Morris Heldt is a retired award winning film and television
producer and published author. He and his wife moved to the Las
