THOUGHT FOR TODAY: We have probed the earth, excavated it, burned it, ripped things from it, buried things in it, chopped down its forests, leveled its hills, muddied its waters, and dirtied its air. That does not fit my definition of a good tenant. If we were here on a month-to-month basis, we would have been evicted long ago.

The SUN staff, Ed Dignan and Ina Levin. Thanks for volunteering!
The New York Times (January 2, 2016) had a feature on senior education using OLLI at Johns Hopkins University as its example. Per the article, of the many positives cited, recent research indicates that stimulating the mind lowers the chances of getting Alzheimer’s.
Don Friedman, the long-time backbone of the curriculum committee, now resides at Bixby Towers. His arthritic condition requires him to have assisted living. He misses OLLI, and we miss him here. He sends his regards to all and would welcome correspondence from his former colleagues. His address is Don Friedman, Bixby Knoll Towers, 3747 Atlantic Ave., Room 614B, Long Beach, CA 90807.
It’s the 70th anniversary for the Baby Boomer generation. Let’s invite more of them to enroll at OLLI!
In the winter session, nineteen classes were filled to capacity. What an achievement!
