Elderly Also Read Paper

The following is from a letter to the Star Tribune by Kathryn Roberts, CEO & President of Ecumen regarding the reassignment of reporter Warren Wolfe and the discontinuing of his aging beat:Warren’s curiosity and dedication to telling the stories of growing older in Minnesota have been a great service to readers. I’m amazed that the Star Tribune would retrench on aging as our region faces an unprecedented age wave. Right along with historic demographic change will be newsworthy transformation in technology, senior services, housing, public policy, the workplace and more.As Kathryn states in the conclusion of her letter, ‘Much is changing about aging in the 21st century.’We hope that the Star Tribune will soon find a way to share this news with the return of an aging beat that supports vital, successful aging.Until then, the Changing Aging blog will remain a public forum to discuss noteworthy senior issues.
