Did you grow up in the early sixties?

If so, you surely remember Yogi Bear and his little friend, Boo-boo. My New Year’s Eve excitement was watching the movie, “Yogi,” in the company of lots of grandchildren.

There is always something for inspiration in a children’s movie. In the current situation, Jelly Stone Park was being sold off by the mayor of the town to pay off his debts. The park ranger discussed the problem with his two picnic snatching friends and told them, “If you are passionate about something, you will fight for it.” They didn’t just sit around and complain, they started their fight (plan).

We are hearing rumors about the Committee on Aging. The public was invited to attend its board meeting on Tuesday and ask questions. Only eight people attended, not counting the six board members and two Chronicle reporters.

The new executive director, Rick Poling, was introduced to the group. He seems to be passionate about his new position. Poling is also passionate about growing up in Calhoun County and also about Calhoun County as a place to grow old. He met with the staff on Tuesday morning and they laid plans for their fight for an active, responsible, enthusiastic staff and involved senior participants.

His initial information to the citizens of the county appears on page one of this issue.

Former director Mike Ritchie deserves our thanks for making the senior center a friendly place to enjoy many activities. We wish him well in his new position of county clerk.

All of us are either aged or aging. We will need the Committee on Aging services.

Rick Poling has asked for your questions and suggestions.

Don’t just sit there, speak up, be passionate!
