Making the hard decisions

in
Bergeron, Nancy.jpg

A few days after Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation, several of my Roman Catholic friends and I wondered whether the now-former pontiff would be called “Pope Emeritus.”
We were not clairvoyant. The practical matter of how to address a retired Holy Father was suddenly real, not only for the church, but also for the world’s vocabulary.

Everybody cheered, even the team in the outfield that would not have been so thrilled with his base hit, if Saturday’s game had been regulation softball. But it wasn’t. It was the opening day of the opening season of Buddy Ball of Ruston, a softball league for special-needs children.

Experts say that exercising your brain is the key to strong mental longevity.
That would make 94-year-old Carrie Terrill of Ruston a marathon thinker.
Terrill, a resident of Ruston Rehab and Nursing for the past 7 1/2 years, hasn’t let the fact that she has some health issues involving extremities slow her down.
