Until next time, "Dell" By Jim Miller Dear Savvy Senior, I run a community counseling program for needy families and am frustrated that so few eligible seniors take advantage of the food stamp program. Can you write a col- umn on this to help educate seniors to this underutilized benefit? Reaching Out Dear Reaching, ............. i, :It's hard to imagine that a gov- ernment program serving more than 46 million Americans each month is considered severely underutilized. But that's the reality of the federal Food Stamp Program when it comes to serving seniors. Nationwide, food stamps (now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP) reaches around 80 percent of those eligible, but the numbers are much slimmer among the seniors, age 60 and older. Recent statistics indicate only 39 percent of eligible seniors receive SNAP benefits. There are a n.umber ofre0sons ..for the lack of participation. Some seniors are too embarrassed or too proud to apply. Others think that if they receive SNAP they will be tak- Sm, W Cont page 5 TEEN BY EMILY L VEG INTERN, WALSH OUNTY PRESS Back to school, back to school... Sales. Most people think that they are nice, and will sometimes seek them out. I will too on occasion; however there has always been one sale every year that makes me cringe a little on the inside. I'm sure that everyone else does too, but this is only about me right now. Anyways, I'm sure that you all can guess what sale I'm referring to. Back to school sales are here and with them is a wave of panic about not doing ab- solutely everything you had planned for the summer. The other weekend; I went down to Grand Forks with my dad and siblings, and I saw signs of the dreaded sale all over town. The mall, Target, the mall, along the road by Kohls, the mall; all bore signs of saving on supplies for the nine months that we students will be chained to our desks. Of course I am being slightly melodramatic, but I real- ly don't care. The point is school is going to be started soon and I am not exactly jumping for joy because of it. I'm not saying that I hate school, I actually don't, but I was hop- ing to get more out of the summer than I did. I do realize that this is no one's fault but my own, but that doesn't mean that I can't complain about it. When I think about all I was hoping for this summer, I real- ize that most of the things are pretty far fetched, like having every sin- gle day be awesome, or learning how to speak Norwegian in just one summer. I guess my problem is that I imagine doing all these amaz- ing things, but I can never work up the nerve or desire to get them done. All the back to school sales I guess are just kind of a reminder that once again, I failed at convincing myself to do something out of the ordi- nary for me. But still, even if the sale does have a deeper, more de- pressing meaning, a sale is still a sale, which makes it a good time to go buy cute clothes. Your community. Your paper.
