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.

The Special Committee on Aging has served as a focal point in the Senate for discussion and debate on matters relating to older Americans, and often submits its findings and recommendations for legislation to the Senate. The Committee additionally publishes materials of assistance to those interested in public policies which relate to the elderly.

For more information, visit the Committee's press releases page. It is a gold mine of legislative issue and hearing information, and resource links, plus: you can sign up for e-News; order publications; view the latest list of issues and press releases; get prescription assistance ... and more!

Information for SHINE - Fuel Assistance - SNAP Programs

Learn about resources that are available to you locally. COA Outreach Coordinator Audrey Allen can help you learn about available local resources and current happenings in our community.

SNAP (Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program) can be used to supplement your food budget costs. Money saved through SNAP could be used toward your medical costs. SNAP is income-based, but it is your income after shelter and medical expenses are deducted.

Home heating and energy assistance (a.k.a. Fuel Assistance) season runs from November 1st through April 30th and is available for eligible homeowners and renters, including households whose cost of heat is included in the rent (12 month assistance in that case). It pays directly to your primary heating source vendor, and automatically includes electric and telephone bill discounts if you are eligible, saving you money to use for medical or other expenses.

The SHINE Program (Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone) provides free health insurance information, counseling and assistance to all Massachusetts residents with Medicare.

Hampton - David W. Murray, 86, of Hampton, formerly of Newburyport, MA. It is with immense sorrow that we share the passing of our Dad, Grampie, brother, uncle, cousin and loyal friend who left us unexpectedly but peacefully in his sleep July 8, 2024. Born in Newburyport, MA to the late Joseph and Dorothea Murray, he attended Immaculate Conception School, graduated from Newburyport High School and went on to serve six years in the United States Air Force. He was active in Newburyport life and politics. He was a member of the city council and served as its President (1970). He dedicated 11 years to the city as Housing Authority Commissioner (1975-1986), and held the position of Civil Defense Director (80's). In 1972, he chaired Newburyport's annual Yankee Homecoming celebration. David and his wife, Faith, loved the tradition of this annual celebration, and enjoyed volunteering for many of its events. Often, award-winning floats were built in their front yard as part of the closing parade. David's career included working at Coca-Cola and W. E. Atkinson in Newburyport. He retired at 80 years young from Aqua Laboratories in Amesbury, MA after 24 years as Director of Plant Operations. David was married to his beloved wife, Faith, for 61 years, until her passing in 2023. He was also predeceased by his sister, Kathryn.

His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy and if you ever had the good fortune of speaking with him, you certainly heard all about them.

West Newbury - Paul P. Johnston, 80, passed away peacefully at home on July 8, 2024, with Jacqueline, his beloved wife of 59 years at his bedside. He spent his final days surrounded by his loving family. Born in Boston, MA on May 18, 1944, Paul was the second child of Frederick and Ruth Johnston, who moved their family to West Newbury when Paul was 8 years old. Country life suited Paul, and he embraced farm chores and proved himself capable, responsible, and dedicated from an early age. He fondly recalled working in the fields and stables at Orcland Farms on Crane Neck Street. In 1961, while judging cows at the Topsfield Fair, Paul's attention was also on 4-H contestant Jacqueline Duchemin. Believing they were meant to be together, Jacqueline announced on their first date that she would marry him. They were each other's closest and truest partners in every way from that day on. Paul graduated from Essex Agricultural High School in 1962, where he played pivotal roles on the football and basketball teams. In 1964, he graduated from the Stockbridge School of Agriculture at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with a degree in Dairy Technology. Marriage followed in September that year, and sons Paul Jr., Eric, and Daniel were born in 1965, 1966, and 1968. As devoted as Paul was to his family, he was also exceptionally loyal to his employer. He quickly advanced from an entry level position to Plant Manager at the New England Milk Producers Association. In 1976, at 32 years old, he was promoted to General Manager of the largest dairy cooperative in New England, Yankee Milk. He led that cooperative and its successor, Agri-Mark, Inc. as President and CEO until his retirement in 2011, including through the acquisitions of nationally branded Cabot Cheese and the McCadam Cheese Company in New York. Recognized for his work ethic, leadership, and keen decisions, Paul served on the Boards and Executive Committees of the National Milk Producers Federation, the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, as well as other regional and national associations. Until this year, he was a Trustee of the "Big E" Eastern States Exposition in Springfield, MA. Committed to progress in the dairy industry, he pursued opportunities, overcame challenges, followed his intuition, and allied with farmers, distributors, and executives. Paul was a voracious reader of current events, history, and fiction, and nearly always had a book in hand. He enjoyed quiet weekends at Cole's Pond in Walden, Vermont, and spent many hours tending vegetable gardens. At family events, he was generous, witty, and wise – and deeply proud of the generations gathered around him. He leaves his devoted wife Jacqueline, son Paul and wife Gigi, son Eric and wife Deanna, son Daniel and wife Heidi, and grandchildren Kyle and wife Alex, Andrew, Lauren, Hailey, Ryan, Natalie, and Elias Johnston, all of whom will honor his memory over their lifetimes. Paul was predeceased by brothers Frederick Jr., Ronald and Robert and sister-in-law, Linda, and is survived by siblings Kevin and Mary Kate and sister-in-law, Christine, as well as many nieces and nephews. Calling hours will be held at Elliott, Woodworth & Rogers Family Funeral Home, 35 Green Street, Newburyport, on July 18, from 5 to 8 pm.

Amesbury - Duncan Lowell Noyes, lifetime Amesbury resident and all around good guy, died surrounded by loved ones at the family homestead on July 2, 2024, at the age of 71. A 1970 graduate of AHS, Duncan always enjoyed the competition and camaraderie of sports and games. From playing first base on an undefeated Little League team to the many bowling leagues he joined in Florida, from learning cribbage and bridge in elementary school to marathon games of Mexican Train Dominoes and a national ranking as backgammon player, he got tremendous satisfaction from that intersection of competition and sociability. Duncan grew up along the Merrimack River, making it and the woods behind the house his playground. It was the realization of a dream, when, after his retirement, he was able to buy the property from his parents' estate, and spend the rest of his life living on and improving the property. After graduating cum laude from Amherst College in 1974, Duncan started his work life in banking. He very shortly got a job with Raytheon, working as a project planner in their missile systems program. During his career there he earned his MBA from Southern New Hampshire University. Wanting to spend more time with his wife, Bonnie, and wanting to travel while they both had their health, he joined her in retirement in 2007. They soon bought a condominium in Clearwater FL, and became snowbirds and started building a community of friends there. There is a saying "the first third of your life is for learning, the second third is for earning, and the last third is for returning." Duncan embodied this. He chose his charities carefully and gave generously. In retirement he served as a treasurer to numerous organizations, including St. James Episcopal Church, the Merrimack River Watershed Council, and the Salisbury Point Cemetery Association. And, he was a patriarch, giving counsel generously to his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Duncan was blessed to grow up in a stable, loving family. His parents, William H. and Eleanor L., and his siblings, Bart, Debbie, and Greg were the classic nuclear family. He took the lessons he learned there to the true passion project of his life, the family he and Bonnie created. Through the highs and lows of family, he met it head on with resolve, compassion, and clear-eyed realism. He always did his best. Duncan is survived by his siblings, his wife Bonnie, three children; Paul and wife Juli, Sherri, and Amanda and husband David, nine grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by a son, Jamie, and a great-granddaughter, Olivia. Calling hours at Paul Rogers Funeral Home in Amesbury, MA from 10 12 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10, 2024. Service will follow at 12 p.m. Burial will be a private ceremony. In lieu of flowers, contributions are requested for deposit only to The Salisbury Point Cemetery Association, Bankprov, 5 Market Street, Amesbury, MA 01913.

Newbury - John B. Vander Sande, 80, of Newbury MA died Friday, June 28, 2024. He was born March 27, 1944 in Baltimore, MD of John L Vander Sande and Genevieve (Kowalski) Vander Sande. He earned his bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering with highest honors from Stevens Institute of Technology (1966) and his PhD in Materials Science from Northwestern University (1970). He was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study at Oxford University as a postdoctoral fellow. John joined the MIT faculty in 1971 as an Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and became a full professor in 1981. He was named Cecil & Ida Green Distinguished Professor in 1991. A year later he was appointed Associate Dean of Engineering and served as Acting Dean of Engineering twice. One of his accomplishments during that period was to play a leading role in developing the Singapore-MIT Alliance, MIT's first foray into distance education. John was named Executive Director of the Cambridge-MIT Institute (CMI), a collaboration with University of Cambridge (UK) and MIT, funded by the British government and industry. CMI concentrated on undergraduate and faculty exchanges, integrated research on productivity and entrepreneurship, professional development for executives and collaboration with eight British universities designated as Enterprise Centers. He served as Executive Director from 1999-2003. John retired from MIT in 2006 but continued his involvement with international academic projects in Ecuador, Morocco and Iceland. He served as Acting Provost of Reykjavik University, Iceland from 2009-2010. John was known for his pioneering contributions to electron microscopy for the characterization of structure and composition of materials. In 1987, John and Gregory J Yurek, another MIT professor, developed a breakthrough technology for processing high temperature superconducting oxide wires; this seminal research led to the co-founding of American Superconductor Corporation with Professors Yet-Ming Chiang and David Rudman. Drs. Vander Sande and Yurek received the 1994 Massachusetts Columbus Quincentennial Award in recognition of the Spirit of Discovery for their breakthrough work in developing high temperature superconductors. With resources stemming from MIT's involvement in founding the company, MIT endowed two professorships- one honoring the late John F Elliott's contribution to metallurgical science and engineering, and the other as a memorial to MIT's 4th President James Mason Crafts. Outside of MIT, he was well regarded as a scholar and gifted lecturer on 17th and 18th century New England furniture, generously sharing his knowledge and engaging in lively discussions with like-minded enthusiasts, including his wife Marie-Teresa and antique afficionados- Hollis Brodrick, Gerry Mingin and Charlie Griffin. He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Marie-Teresa (Melluzzo) Vander Sande; son John Franklin and wife Melanie (Swirk) VanderSande, Amesbury; daughter Rosse Marais VanderSande Ellis and husband Zak Ellis, Decatur, Tx; grandchildren Gabriel Rhys Pelletier and partner Grace Christian, Los Angeles; Sophia Marais VanderSande and John Christian VanderSande, Amesbury, MA. He is survived by one brother, Jack Vander Sande and his wife, Elaine, Noxon, MT. His brother Emiel D Vander Sande predeceased him. John Vander Sande was a man of great character, generous spirit, a wonderful mentor, loving husband and father and a faithful Catholic.
