What happens next? We dunno.
Medical issues for “seniors” are ever-present, as Dr. Jennifer Heidmann discusses. Executive Director Joyce Hayes looks ahead to prospects for elders under the Trump Administration. After 30+ years in public service, former Humboldt Supervisor and former Arcata and Trinidad Mayor and Councilperson Julie Fulkerson plans new ways to make a difference. Humboldt State University President Lisa Rossbacher talks about the value of seniors’ experience. And Alan Grau looks forward to his 31st Ford Hess Trindad-to-Clam Beach Run.
It’s hard not to reflect on past/present/future as we make this transition to a new year, even though — really — Jan. 1 is no different than any other day. But we can hope. As Tiny Tim says in Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol (1843), “God bless us, every one.”
Happy New Year, everyone!
