Editor's Comments

“When truth is buried underground it grows, it chokes, it gathers such an explosive force that on the day it bursts out, it blows up everything with it.” ~ Emile Zola

The SUN staff, now at eighteen persons, continues its excellent volunteer work. Richard Adams has accepted the position of assistant SUN editor.
Poetry is featured in this issue of the SUN. Judy Mednick, our former SUN co-editor, is remembered again in a poem on page 4. Good friend Linda Carr carries on with Memory into Poetry tradition.
lindaJohn Pak, a financial advisor, conducted two special classes again on Social Security and Medicare to a large group of OLLI members and friends.
We request SUN readers to submit letters, poetry, cartoons, quizzes, or anything that’s fit to print in future issues.
Lipstick looks better in red than grey. To view the SUN in color, go to our web site: Our budget restricts us to printing the SUN in black and white.
In addition to being the OLLI VP, Bill Fitzpatrick is not only an authority on Irish history and a member of the advisory board of LifeFit, but also an athlete. At the 2015 National Senior Games in Minneapolis, Bill came in second in the 400- and 800-meter races for the 65-69 age group. What a guy!
