In This Issue

Consider this. Every year, at least one out of three people over age 65 falls. Then there’s arthritis, stiff backs, and sore knees, which can sap the joy from life. But, still – we must keep moving.

It looks different from when we were younger. No more pounding the pavement or rough contact sports. Instead, we must work on stretching (so easy to forget but so necessary); balance, core strength building and gentle aerobics.

Luckily, we have a wide variety of instructors and facilities locally to get the life-extending, life-enhancing exercise we need. UGA retirees Sharron and Kent Hannon are very familiar with what’s available and have put together a round-up of resources which they share in Part 1 of a two-part series on how to keep moving despite the changes in our bodies.

Art and Connie Crawley bring us Part 2 of their review of Baxter Street restaurants and Tim Dondero, a restauranteur himself, shares the backstory and recipe for a well-known Italian dish. The recipe looks simple enough that even I could make it and intend to.

So, here’s to a happy and healthy 2020 for all of us.
