Littleton Rotary
Rounding out "Rotary Literacy Month", the Littleton Rotary Club welcomed author and niche publisher Mike Dickerman to its March 26 meeting. Dickerman's publishing and distribution company, Bondcliff Books, specializes in titles related to the mountains of New Hampshire and northern New England. While many readers still believe that books should be printed and occupy shelf space; "to have and to hold," increasing numbers are turning to e-readers and the Internet. He noted that traditional books are not going to disappear, but businesses must adapt to survive. Dickerman's popular hiking column, "The Beaten Path," has appeared regularly in newspapers across the Granite State for more than 27 years. He served as co-editor of both the award-winning anthology, Beyond the Notches: Stories of Place in New Hampshire's North Country, and the 29th edition of the AMC White Mountain Guide.

Seniors Information Source
As the baby boomers continue to enter retirement in record numbers--a group that includes my own parents--more and more of us will face the question of how to handle their changing health needs. However, many of us will also face an even more urgent request from our parents themselves: "Please don't put me in a nursing home." The problem is this: when mom and dad start to need more daily care, it can put pressure on family caregivers and strain on relationships.
