An official announcement for the next WDAY Honor Flight was made at the RedHawks Jersey Day fimdraiser on Sunday, August 27. It is sched- uled for Nov 5 and 6, 2017. According to the article printed on the WDAY Honor Flight website, letters will be going out to those invited to go on the trip. The article, posted by Tracy Briggs, stated that they would love to take absolutely everyone who applies as soon as they apply; however, there is a waiting list to go on the trip. Flyers are chosen based both on dates of military service and date of application. (For example: WWII vets are put ahead of Korean War Vets and Korean War Vets are put ahead ofViemam vets.) It is not necessary to have served overseas or in the wars themselves. If you served in the eras you qualify. Special conditions are made for vet- erans who have terminal illnesses. After dates of service, flyers are se- lected based upon date the application is received. Organizers urge veterans who have not applied to get your application in to be considered for future flights. A pre-flight meeting will be held for veterans going on this trip. Vet- erans are encouraged to come or send' ~meone to come on their behalf to receive some valuable information about the November trip. Dates and location for the pre-flight meeting will be included in the letter sent out to those scheduled for the trip. To find an application online, please visit http://wdayhonorflight.areav- oices.corn/to-apply/application/ Or to have one mailed out to you, you may contact the Welsh County Veterans Service Office at 352-5030. Veterans and their families may also call the WDAY Honor Flight organizers directly at (218) 779-7834 to ask questions or to have an application sent to you. Thank you for your serv- ice.

Can you recommend some good resources that can help us eval- uate and choose a good car for old- er drivers ? Car Shoppers /~i,Dear Shoppers, ~!~:~;With more than 40 million li, :eensed drivers in the United States age 65 and older, many automakers today are designing certain vehicles that are friendlier for older drivers. But what makes a good car for sen- iors? For many, top priorities include a vehicle that's easy to get into and out of, easy to adjust for fit and com- fort, easy to operate and see out of, as well as reliable, safe and a good value. To help you narrow your vehicle choices, Consumer Reports and the American Automobile Association (AAA) offer some great information and tools to assist you. CR Best Cars Consumer Reports recently put out a top 25 ranking of new cars for senior drivers. Each vehicle on their list offers excellent or very good rat- ings on reliability, safety, road-test performance and owner satisfaction. And, they offer a variety of senior- friendly features that are extremely important to older divers, like: Easy front-seat access: Vehicles with low door thresholds, wider door openings, and step-in heights that re- duce the need for ducking or climb- ing, make getting into and out of a car easier for those with physical limitations. Good visibility: Being able to see well out of the from, sides, and back of a vehicle for tall, medium, and shorter drivers. Simplified controls: Easy-to- read gauges and simplified/intu- itive controls for changing the radio, shifting gears, and adjusting the heating and cooling ]s a high pI~0~- ~y among~oidcr dri~.ers~ ~ i~3~~ Bright headlights: Pow~l headlights can make driving at night easier for people with de- creasing or compromised vision. They also weighed in extra safe- ty features (standard or optional) like a backup camera, automatic emer- gency braking, forward-collision warning and blind-spot warning. Their picks include a variety of compact and midsized sedans and SUVs, two minivans and a station wagon fi'om seven different au- tomakers. Here's their top 25 rank- ing, starting with one through 25: Subaru Forester; Subaru Outback; Kia Soul; Subaru Legacy; Kia Sportage; Toyota Highlander; Toy- ota Prins V; Toyota RAV4; Honda Odyssey; Nissan Rogue; Honda Accord; Ford C-Max Hybrid; Hyundai Sonata; Toyota Camry; Subaru Crosstrek; Toyota Sienna; Honda CR-V; Honda Pilot; Kia Forte; Ford Escape; Toyota Corol- la; Kia Sorento; Ford Flex; Hyundai Santa Fe; Hyundai Tucson.
