                                        Back To School

An elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as
childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired.
Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and
found the old desk they’d shared, where Andy had carved “I love you, Sally.”

On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at
their feet. Sally quickly picked it up and, not sure what to do with it, they took it home.
There, she counted the money: fifty thousand dollars! Andy said, “We’ve got to give it
back..” Sally said, “Finders keepers.” She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their
attic.

The next day, two police officers were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money
and knocked on their door. “Pardon me, did either of you find a bag that fell out of an
armored car yesterday?” Sally said, “No”. Andy said, “She’s lying. She hid it up in the
attic.” Sally said, “Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile”. The agents turned to Andy and
began to question him. He said: “Tell us the story from the beginning.”

Andy said, “Well, when Sally and I were waking home from school yesterday….

The first police officer turned to his partner and said, “We’re outta here!”

                The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
                David Fincher directs this adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic tale set
                in the early 20th century that follows Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt), a man
                who was born in his 80s and continually grows younger. The story throws
                linear conventions upside down to explore love, loss and memories from the
                perspective of a character living under incredibly unique -- and unexpectedly
                difficult -- circumstances. Cate Blanchett co-stars in this Oscar nominee for
                Best Picture. PG-13

Slumdog Millionaire
After coming within one question of winning 20 million rupees on the Indian
version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" 18-year-old Mumbai
"slumdog" Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) is arrested on suspicion of cheating.
While in custody, Jamal regales a jaded police inspector (Irfan Khan) with
remarkable tales of his life on the streets, as well as the story of Latika
(Freida Pinto), the woman he loved and lost. Danny Boyle's film won a
Golden Globe and Oscar for Best Picture.
 Rated R For some violence, disturbing images and language.

                                       The End Is Near
Reverend Ole was the pastor of the local Norwegian Lutheran Church, and Pastor Sven was
the minister of the Swedish Covenant Church across the road. I saw them yesterday standing
by the road, pounding a sign into the ground that reads:
“Da End Iss Near! Turn Yourself Aroundt Now! Before It’s Too Late!”
As a car sped past them, the driver leaned out his window and yelled, “Leave us alone, you
religious nuts!”
From the curve we heard screeching tires and a big splash…
Rev. Ole turns to Pastor Sven and asks, “Do ya tink maybe da sign should yust say ‘Bridge
Out’?”

                              Would You Like To Be An Advocate?

The State of Wisconsin Board on Aging and Long Term Care is looking for volunteers in our
area to join The Long Term Care Volunteer Ombudsman Program

Volunteer Ombudsmen will:
    • Protect the rights of elderly people 60 years and older by making unannounced and
        focused weekly visits in long term care facilities.
    • Listen to and talk with people living in long term care facilities.
    • Empower residents and family members to speak up.
    • Voice concerns for residents who cannot speak for themselves.
    • Observe general conditions and daily activities in long term care facilities.
    • Receive support and training by experts in advocacy, emphasizing resident rights.
    • Meet with new residents and their families to explain Ombudsman Program Services.
        Act as the “eyes and ears” of the Regional Ombudsman.
    • Help resident and family council members resolve concerns within the long term care
        facility.
How to become a Volunteer Ombudsman:
    • Attend the initial 7 hours mandatory training.
    • Commit at least 6 months of volunteer time.
    • Devote 2-3 hours per week at a specific long term care facility.
    • Attend continuing educational programs
    • Agree to undergo a criminal background check.
Other Volunteers Have Said:
“It is very rewarding to volunteer, especially for the aging. I put more interest in volunteering
than in employment.” –Doris B. (Milwaukee)
“To help people have a voice and get a smile in return” – Jim H. (Janesville)
“Volunteering for me is all about listening – listening to the people so you can help.” – Diane
W. (Madison)
A Volunteer Ombudsman must have an abundance of Commitment, Caring and Concern for
our frail older persons.

                Stop in the Senior Center to pick up a volunteer application.

If you have ever visited the Statue of Liberty in person, you already know she's an imposing figure, but
consider the following fun facts:

   •   Official dedication ceremonies held on
       Thursday, October 28, 1886
   •   Total overall height from the base of the
       pedestal foundation to the tip of the
       torch is 305 feet, 6 inches
   •   Height of the Statue from her heel to the
       top of her head is 111 feet, 6 inches
   •   The face on the Statue of Liberty
       measures more than 8 feet tall
   •   There are 154 steps from the pedestal to
       the head of the Statue of Liberty
   •   A tablet held in her left hand measures
       23' 7" tall and 13' 7" wide inscribed
       with the date JULY IV MDCCLXXVI
       (July 4, 1776)
   •   The Statue has a 35-foot waistline
   •   There are seven rays on her crown, one
       for each of the seven continents, each
       measuring up to 9 feet in length and
       weighing as much as 150 pounds
   •   Total weight of the Statue of Liberty is
       225 tons (or 450,000 pounds)
   •   At the feet of the Statue lie broken
       shackles of oppression and tyranny
   •   During the restoration completed in
       1986, the new torch was carefully
       covered with thin sheets of 24k gold
   •   The exterior copper covering of the
       Statue of Liberty is 3/32 of an inch thick
       (less than the thickness of two pennies) and the light green color (called a patina) is the result of
       natural weathering of the copper.

memory of the event and we will include them in our next newsletter. If you have a photo that we can copy,
we will do so and return your original intact. Please send to sargal@two-rivers.org or bonwil@two-
