A squirrelly Thanksgiving by Amy Kenneley

There's a very young squirrel jumping from branch to branch outside my living room window. During the summer months, he was exploring his new world, gradually gaining confidence and speed. I imagine his mother was watching from a safe distance as he tried his squirrel agility-tail twitching, scurrying techniques, acrobatic jumps. Not being a squirrel expert, I am taking liberties with the squirrel's gender, but for convenience I am making him a "he."...

Episode 6 - 3 brave journalists and a courageous newspaper
by Joseph Meissner

We take for granted freedom of the press in the U.S. We may face criticisms here but no threats of violence or legal oppression. This is not true in Turkey.

We visited with three very brave journalists and writers who work on behalf of some courageous agencies in Turkey. We spent a day with all of them at various locations. ...

Episode 5 - Jewish Community in Turkey
by Joseph Meissner

This Country sitting on two continents is very proud of its history involving people of Jewish background. The most famous example is the welcoming of Jewish refugees in 1492 by the Ottoman Empire and its Sultan B after the Kingdoms of Castille and Aragon had conquered all of Spain.

100 Years of Difference

Every once in a while something turns up that is so fascinating that I have to say to myself in a 100 years I never seen anything like it. That is what happened this past Saturday to celebrate the Bar Mitzvah of Arnie Miller grandson. I never saw anything like it so I must tell you about it.

I want you to picture this. The entire lower basement area of Park Synagogue was set up to act as an Israeli market. This was a real market set up. ...

The Fly Over
by Maury Feren

After a spectacular 100th birthday party with 500 or so of his closest friends, Maury had another amazing experience.

... Out of the blue David called me and told me there would be a fly over on my real birthday September 27th at Chesterland. He advised me to gather all my people and friends that could come. What a fly over it would be. I said "How are you going to do that?"

He replied that on the 27th of September two P51 mustang fighter planes will fly over Chesterland doing four dips and underpass turns. I could not believe it. You'll see he said. This is an honor of your past historical experiences.

Covered Bridges of Astabula County
Travels with Pat & Tom Mugridge

There are over 125 covered bridges in Ohio, second only to Pennsylvania in number (so let's build some more so we can take the lead!). We decided that we would spend a weekend visiting the 17 that adorn the countryside of Ashtabula, and the 1 in the City of Geneva.

ClevelandSeniors.Com Book of the Week


In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft.

Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.
