The senior population in the U.S. is expanding at an astounding rate. Each day 10,000 of us celebrate our 65th birthdays, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens.
Although the longevity statistic implies that medical care for the elderly is progressing at a fast pace, the fact of the matter is that not all older Americans are in good health. And, not all of them are financially healthy. Many of them need help and so AMAC encourages family members and friends to get involved in their lives to whatever extent they are able.
And, if you need help in order to offer help, you may want to visit such Web sites asaoa.gov/, cdc.gov, eldercare.gov and fda.gov/oc/seniors. In addition there are sites that provide information on how to find financial help for older relatives or friends such as the National Council on Aging’s benefitscheckup.org Web site. There are numerous commercial sites for senior assistance, but it is advised that you check them out before using them, AMAC advises.

During the few months that makeup Florida’s rainy season, awareness of the area’s water quality, storm water storage and hurricane preparedness is a priority.
However, agencies like the Lehigh Acres Municipal Services Improvement District work diligently year-round to plan, prepare and implement projects to alleviate storm water issues and educate the communities they serve.
“It is important for residents to realize that our waterways, canals, lakes, et cetra, are connected to larger bodies of water such as the Orange and Caloosahatchee Rivers, as well as Hickey and Bedman Creek,” said David Lindsay, LA-MSID district manager.
During the period of June 1, through August 4th the Lee County Supervisor of Elections Office processed over 8,829 party changes.

A new device called a “skimmer” has been spotted inside Walmart self-checkout lines, stealing your credit or debit card information and giving it to criminals.
Looking like the front of a typical credit card scanner, the device is placed over an existing credit card scanner by criminals and captures your credit card information as it is simultaneously being used to purchase an item.
Law enforcement officials say that they’ve seen the device typically outdoors, at gas stations or ATMs, but never inside a store before.
Once a card is swiped to a device with a skimmer attached, the bank account information is sent somewhere other than the store, allowing it to be used to purchase items online or anywhere else a credit card number can be used. Criminals are also able to reconstruct a card using the information and taking it to ATM machines to withdraw cash.
Following the conclusion all primaries and conventions, it is now time for every American to turn towards defeating Hillary Clinton on November 8, 2016.
Our country cannot afford another eight years of disastrous liberal policies of the Democratic Party, so it is imperative that we elect a strong constitutional conservative leader.
Donald J. Trump has overwhelmingly won a spirited primary campaign and is energizing the American voters across the nation one voter at a time.
Trump will strengthen this country’s economy and foreign policy and regain our standing in this troubled world.
Gov. Rick Scott announced the number of Zika cases likely spread by local mosquitoes had increased to 14 and asked Monday for a federal emergency response team to help the state combat the spread of the virus in the U.S.
The governor said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would issue a travel warning to pregnant women or those thinking of becoming pregnant to avoid a square mile area in Miami-Dade County, where officials believe the active transmissions of Zika are occurring.
Officials announced four cases on Friday, believed to be first people to contract the virus from mosquitoes within the 50 states. The CDC’s emergency response team will help Florida officials in their investigation, sample collection and mosquito control efforts.
Florida health officials said they’ve tested more than 200 people in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties after reports of local transmissions of the virus in early July. Of the 14 people infected, two are women and 12 are men.

With the violent crime rate in this nation climbing to an all-time high, I thought it would be wise to look at the cold hard facts of who is doing these crimes. Now this article going to show the reader the simple fact, as given to us by the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
Now as you read this you may come to believe that this article is racist, but the numbers and facts do not lie. Yet if it makes you feel better go ahead and call this article racist, it is your right but facts are facts.
It is a simple fact of life that nonwhites commit at least 90 percent of all violent crimes in the United States even though nonwhites make up only 57 percent of the population, and the least white cities are the most dangerous, an analysis of one of the latest Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) crime statistics has revealed.
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
In 1950, when Communist armies from the North stormed across the 38th parallel, brave American men and women though weary of combat in the wake of World War II stepped forward to defend their brothers and sisters on the Korean Peninsula. Over the course of 3 years, through unforgiving weather and severe danger, nearly 1.8 million Americans joined in the fight and faced down Communism pushing the invading armies back and protecting a people on the other side of the world. As we mark the 63rd anniversary of the Military Armistice Agreement that brought an end to this war, we pause to honor the strength and resilience of our Korean War veterans, whose spirits and stories serve as an inspiration to continue advancing freedom’s cause.
Rising from occupation and ruin, the Republic of Korea today shines as a thriving, modern country, whose people can take comfort in knowing that the commitment of the United States to their stability and security will never waver. Fifty million South Koreans now live in freedom, reaching for their dreams and pursuing opportunities in a vibrant democracy and dynamic economy always realizing they have a partner who will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them in defense of peace and prosperity. Our lasting friendship and unbreakable alliance are sustained by the beliefs we hold in common and the values we cherish.
