Vegetarian Pad Thai

This Vegetarian Pad Thai is a colorful combination of fresh produce, an easy vegetarian pad Thai sauce, and freshly spiralized zucchini noodles. It’s a magic wand that transforms classic pad Thai into a healthy, low-carb, 30-minute dinner. My love for pad Thai runs deep. So much so, that when Ben and I visited Thailand, we split…

Newburyport - Keetah Jacquelyn Life, 89, died peacefully on Sept. 13 at Country Center for Health and Rehabilitation in Newburyport, after several years of decline with dementia. Keetah was born on Oct. 13, 1931, in Athens, Texas, the only child of Jack T. and Ada Kaletah Wynne Life. Her high school years were complicated by her mother's sudden onset of mental illness that required Keetah to live with her grandmother and other relatives throughout high school; her dog Capt'n was an anchor for her, and she raised cocker spaniels for a while. Ultimately her mother recovered, but the desire to understand what happened to her and the wish to have been able to help her were Keetah's impetus to become a psychologist. Keetah graduated from Stevens College and the University of Texas, where playing powderpuff football for her sorority led to a lifelong passion for college and professional football. She earned her master's in Clinical Psychology at Florida State University, then returned to the southwest to work at Indian schools in Colorado and New Mexico, where she bought her first house in Albuquerque. In the mid-1960s, she left Albuquerque with a friend for a summer program in film-making at NYU, intending to make and use films for training new clinicians. Having come north, she stayed, living first in Boston, then Marblehead, Beverly, Wenham and finally in 1983 in Newburyport. She worked for many years at Haverhill Mental Health Association and subsequently Greater Lynn Community Health, and was active with the Area Board of the state's mental health services. In the 1990s, she also maintained a small private practice in Newburyport. Keetah played the piano and ukulele from childhood throughout life. In high school, she wrote and performed her own songs. In her middle years, she was a serious writer of both prose and poetry; although she never sought publication, she attended the Breadloaf Writers Conference and studied with Carolyn Forché. She loved to sing cowboy and western songs in the car, with the ukulele, on road trips. Her time in the North softened her Texas drawl but never quite destroyed it. Through much of her adult life, Keetah accompanied her parents on their annual international trips, visiting Spain, Greece, Thailand and Hong Kong, among other destinations. She also made sure that her parents were able to attend the annual Wynne Family Party that brought together her mother's large extended family. As they aged and became frail, she educated herself in financial management to assure that they could remain in their home, and for ten years supervised their care from a distance, with many trips between Massachusetts and Texas. In 1985, Keetah's life partner, Priscilla B. Bellairs, joined her in the house they subsequently bought in Newburyport. Their life together included support for each other in their work and through many life crises, vacations in Provincetown, travels throughout New England, and to Alaska, China, and Malta. Introduced to St. Paul's by Priscilla, Keetah became a committed participant in the healing ministry offered there for more than ten years. Keetah was both amazingly self-sufficient and an intensely devoted friend. She offered creative counsel, emotional and often financial support to those she befriended, and respect and kindness to all she met. Most people found her as memorable as her name. Keetah leaves her beloved companion, Priscilla, of Newburyport; her cherished cousin Susan Perry of Austin, Texas; the wonderful neighbors on Purchase Street, who helped her stay at home as long as possible; and many dear friends whose affection and support she gratefully treasured. Keetah's last two years were made as happy, comfortable and COVID-safe as possible by the loving care provided by Constellation Hospice and by the aides, nurses, staff and administrators at Country Center for Health and Rehabilitation. Missy, Sheri, Jennifer, Josephine, Devin, Jackie, Darlene and all the rest—we cannot thank you enough. A funeral service for Keetah will be held on Saturday, September 25 at 1 p.m. at St. Paul's Church, 166 High Street, Newburyport, followed by an outdoor reception and finally burial at Oak Hill Cemetery. Masking will be required at all times inside the church. All who knew Keetah are welcome. The service will also be live-streamed on St. Paul's YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/StPaulsChurchNewburyportMA. Arrangements are by Elliott, Woodworth & Rogers Family Funeral Home, 35 Green Street, Newburyport.

Salisbury - John passed away peacefully with loving family by his side on September 14, 2021, at Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport. John was born in New York, NY, and raised in Queens, son of the late Joseph and Lena (Contrino) Letizia. He later moved to VT to eventually retire in a log cabin built in Bakersfield for he and his wife of 30 years. Husband of the late Marlene A. (Kaufmann) Letizia, John later moved to be closer to his daughters in MA. John most loved spending time with family, laughing, talking, and having meals together. He was a history buff, loved the outdoors and enjoyed hiking and birding. He was a big NY sports fan, much to the dismay of friends he made in Salisbury. John always worked hard and would do anything for his family. He was strong-willed, opinionated and independent. When John became unable to live alone safely due to Parkinson's disease, his family cared for him and made sure he had resources and supports to remain at home until his passing. The family especially wishes to thank Janela, Dioseni, Maria, Rosalinda, and Patty for the care and love they showed him. John is the father of Linda Letizia of Exeter, NH, Joseph Letizia and wife Hong of Prescott Valley, AZ, and Ann (Letizia) and husband Michael Morrison of Salisbury, MA. He is also survived by two grandchildren, Stefan and Josephine; a sister, Katherine; and several nieces and nephews. John is predeceased by his sister, Mary. There are no local calling hours or funeral services. A private graveside service will be held at a later date, where he will join his wife Marlene once again in VT. Twomey, LeBlanc & Conte Funeral Home, 193 High Street, Newburyport, MA 01950 is entrusted with the arrangements. Please visit www.tlcfuneralhome.com to sign the online guest book.

Learn about someone else's story in memory of Sandra Driscoll of Vergennes, VT, who passed on August 25, 2021. Sandy was born in Middlebury, Vermont, on April 27, 1944, and spent much of her childhood living at Tilton School in Tilton, New Hampshire, where her father taught chemistry. She experienced the bustle of students while living in their family apartment in the residence halls and eating in the dining hall. Her childhood summers were spent at the Slack family camp on Hawkins Bay in Ferrisburgh, Vermont, and later at their family summer house in Meredith, New Hampshire, playing with, and teasing, her younger brother Gerry. She graduated from high school in Dover, New Hampshire, and attended the University of New Hampshire before moving to Burlington, Vermont.

As the mother of five children, Sandy was busy with school and community activities for many years, volunteering for everything from PTA to Girl Scouts. She was a lover of books. Her experience volunteering in school libraries led her to work in the children's room at the Merrimac Public Library in Merrimac, Massachusetts, for many years. Her specialty was creating craft projects for children of all ages. As her children moved on to college, she began a period of exploring her own interests. She studied American Sign Language and English at Northern Essex Community College and received her associate degree. Sandy loved to travel, and visited many areas of New England, from Cape Cod to Maine, open to whatever adventures she would encounter. Throughout her life Sandy loved Vermont and was thrilled to move to Vergennes in 2006. She spent time renovating her great-grandfather's house, volunteering in the children's room at the Bixby Memorial Free Library and serving as an active member of the Vergennes United Methodist Church.

US Special Committee on Aging

The United States Senate's Special Committee on Aging, currently chaired by Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), was established in 1961 as a temporary committee. It was granted permanent status in February, 1977. While special committees have no legislative authority, they can study issues, conduct oversight of programs, and investigate reports of fraud and waste. Note: Senior victims of fraud can report it to the Fraud Hotline.
