Chris Kratochvil * Walsh Coun- ty Veterans Service Officer Administrative Building, 638 Cooper Ave Ste 5, Grafton By Jim Miller Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend any advo- cacy organizations for seniors oth- er than AARP? I cut up my AARP card a few years back hen they supposed Obamaeare,.and'am now !oo"Mngfor another organization that better reresetk me. Conservative Senior Dear Conservative, There are actually quite a few senior advocacy organizations out there promoting themselves as con- servative alternatives to AARP. While AARP, with a membership of almost 38 million, is by far the biggest and most powerful advoca- cy group for people age 50 and old- TEEN BEAT er, there are millions of older Amer- icans that don't like or agree with their stance on various issues. Many believe AARP leans to far to the left spit i stated n0npan nat,/e,  For seniors that are anti-A/LR-,P.,, here are numerous onservat[;e ieg groupS that you Can join that may better represent your views, and most of them offer discount benefits too. Here are several to look into. The Seniors Coalition: Estab- lished in 1990, this nonprofit or- ganization has around four million supporters. Their key issues are to Cont page 5 BY EMILY LAAVEG INTERN, WALSH (OUNTY PRESS N .00rds unite: Media loves make for fast friends, connections I am a huge fan of the media. When I say this, though, I don't mean reading gossip magazines full of lies or spending 5 hours a day watch- ing TV or playing video games. When I say the media, I mean all of it: television, books, music, works of art, and other such things. I love how they can all bring together a bunch of people who might not think that they have things in common. There are a lot of places for these people to connect. At work, on a date, at a store, and of course you cannot forget the largest yearly gath- ering of nerds: Comic-Con. Now of course when I say nerds, I just mean people who LOVE things; I am not trying to insult anyone who does go and does not consider themselves a nerd. I think that it is excellent that people are willing to spend lots of time and effort just go to this event where they can meet all sorts of other people who love the same things as they do and learn about what is going on in their little king- dom of fans. Long story short, I like how people can get together and bond over whatever it is that they love in the media. Another thing that I like about the media is the aspect that isn't vis- ibly there, but is still in all parts nonetheless. You know you have an excellent piece of art when it really moves you through your thoughts and feelings. There are a lot of things out there that move a lot of dif- ferent people, and they all move people in ways that is just a little bit different between each individual. I may never go to San Diego to par- ticipate in Comic-Con, or go to some big fancy museum with tons of priceless works of art, but I can still be moved through songs, TV shows, and pictures that I see everyday without having to spend a ton of mon- ey to look at. Happy 40th Anniversary Paul and Colleen Paul and Colleen (Schanilec) Samson met on one destined, dance-filled evening as teenagers, at The Terra Cotta Ballroom in Pisek, North Dako- ta. Fast forward forty wonderful years later and they now have seven chil- dren and fifteen grand-children. Paul was born and raised in Park River, the son of Wesley and Mari- on Samson. Colleen was also born in Park River, the daughter of Gene and Irene Schanilec, and raised on a farm outside of Forest River. Paul currently owns Samsofi Electric, which his father Wesley Sam- son started in 1951. He is very involved with his business, but also takes advantage of opportunities to immerse himself in many great outdoor ac- tivities, to visit family, or play a classic 70's song on his guitar. Colleen is active with The Pregnancy Help Center of Park River and Saint Gianna's Matemity Home of Warsaw. She also enjoys traveling home and abroad to visit family and religious sites. Their children and grand-children would like to thank them for their unending example of love, perseverance, and kindness. They have taught us to keep trying to be better- in our marriages, in our lives, in our faith and in our society. They have also taught us to challenge ourselves dai- ly and those fruits will multiply into a beautifully blessed life. Congrat- ulations on forty years of happiness!
