Samples & After Press Information
our July 2017 Senior Beacon
From The Cave
month I was changing a doctorís appointment because I had a conflict.
As I talked with the doctorís assistant we got kind of lost in the
weeds of the conversation because she had a calendar and I didnít and
my mind wandered off on something she said. When we finally got back to
the important part which was to re-schedule I said "is Monday the
17th on a Wednesday?" The worst part is neither one of us caught
the mistake......... and when my wife, who was near me, heard it and
repeated it I laughed and repeated it to the receptionist who politely
kept on with her work and re-scheduled that appointment. Now thatís a
BEWARE! BEWARE! "firstname.lastname@example.org" is a scam!
One of my wonderful readers told a friend who needed a job that there
was an ad in Senior Beacon in June that fit her skill set. DO
NOT, I repeat DO NOT get involved with this email job scam.
If you saw the ad and are in the middle of working with them please STOP
IMMEDIATELY. Send them no money. Shut down all correspondence and
walk away from the claims they make about salary and how they are moving
to Pueblo. IT IS A SCAM!!! DA Chostner is looking into it!
started this newspaper in February of 1982 and through 424 consecutive
monthly issues I have never printed anything to do with a scam. I am
angry and a bit embarrassed. So please everyone BEWARE. These scammers
are everywhere and into everything.
have no better angels it would seem. They arenít too bright either.
They are trying to scam $2,000 or more from people who are trying to get
$20-an-hour jobs in care giving. Why do they think these types of people
would have $2,000 in their checking accounts in the first place? So, as
always, please keep your eyes open and your senses aware and again stay
away from all the "email@example.com" scammers in
this world no matter where you find the information.
friend and almost monthly contributing writer Eileen Doherty, who is the
Executive Director of the Colorado Gerontological Society, writes on
page 21 of this issue that the Colorado legislature did not pare back or
cut the Senior tax exemption for property taxes. Yipppee!
the clock ticking in favor of Father Time, there will be a time when I
no longer will be Publishing Senior Beacon. That said, there is
something Iíd like to say to the evolution of this column and Senior
Beacon in general. Iíve watched the media, which Senior Beacon
is a part of in the vaguest definition of the word, become a cheering
squad for all things on the Left of the political spectrum. There was a
time that the New York Times and perhaps the Washington Post
had standards. They, of course, were Leftists themselves. Of this there
is no doubt. But the owners of those two opinion-makers had a fierce
loyalty to fairness even leaning a little bit to the right so as to even
the usual leftist pablum out a little bit. But now those folks have left
the stage and the vast majority of journalists and newspapers,
magazines, television news, websites and etc. (somewhere in the 82% to
18% range in the favor of the left) donít even try to hide their
biases anymore. Perhaps itís why they are losing readers and followers
at an alarming rate. It may even be the reason DJT won the election.
Americans are a fair-minded lot and it is my opinion that if the media
wasnít so arrogant and condescending toward candidate Trump and his
followers HRC would have made history, my opinion of her
notwithstanding. This arrogance and condescending permeates the entirety
of the media. It is interwoven now in sports articles, cooking shows,
well Iím starting to belabor the point. The point is they donít even
try to hide it anymore. We no longer have a "fair" media. We
have a media that is part of the Democrat Party apparatus.
urge you to support the media you like. Notes, subscriptions or even
donations (not asking for myself) helping those existing on a shoestring
can only help to even out the landscape.
