Editor's Comments

“Intellect distinguishes between the possible and the impossible; reason distinguishes between the sensible and the senseless.
Even the possible can be senseless.”
-- Max Born

Judy Mednick, the SUN’s assistant editor, has
left us. We lost big. Words cannot express how she will
be missed. She joined the SUN staff in 1998 and left her fingerprints on every story for 65 issues. This issue of The SUN is dedicated to her memory. A big thank you to Cindy Smith for helping with the editorial work on articles for The SUN.
Dick Blankenship, a super OLLI volunteer (plus my poker pal),dick
complained that his picture didn’t appear in the last issue of the SUN. How thoughtless of us. Can you find him in this issue?
We appreciated the LB Press Telegram’s
feature article about Ken Nakagawa’s class
describing the Japanese experiences during
WWII. Kathy Winkenwerder also was featured
in an article in the paper about senior computer users and OLLI offerings for improving technology skills.
Paintings by OLLI members are on display in classroom 101. Some
of the artwork is for sale - contact the artitists. We do have talent.
Our annual membership meeting will be held in the OLLI classroom on Oct 18 at 1:30 pm. President Malcolm Green will deliver his “State of OLLI”
address. Here’s a chance to meet new OLLI members. You are urged to attend.
September Equinox: September 22, 2014; 7:29 pm PDT
November 4 is approaching. It’s election day. Every vote counts, so
get out there and vote. It’s Autumn - don’t Fall!
