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.

Biddeford - Richard Paul Martello, Jr., 24, beloved son of Nancy Phillips and the late Peter Maffiola, took his own life on May 8, 2022 with his sister, Shawnia. Ricky grew up in Rowley and was well liked by everyone who met him. He went to the Pine Grove School and kept busy with cub scouts, play dates and baseball. He LOVED baseball, both watching it and playing it. He was a good all-around player and played catcher for a couple of seasons. Watching him play was one of my favorite things because he was so joyful. One of my favorite pictures of him is a town league baseball picture. His grin is as big as the sky. I delivered newspapers and he would come with me. Many of our former customers will probably remember him bringing their paper to the door or riding around on his scooter or bike while I delivered. He went on to Triton Regional where he really started to struggle. Ricky did not finish but did go on to take his High School Equivalency Test and passed. I was so proud of him because it took guts to go back and do that. He got his first job at the Village Pancake House in Rowley as a dishwasher. He really liked it and eventually moved up to cooking - and he was good at it. Ricky cooked at a number of local restaurants. His real interest was in engine repair but he never got the chance to try his hand at it. Ricky was the joy of my life but in the last five or six years his life spiraled out of control. He struggled with drug addiction and depression and I tried to encourage him and love him out of it. I think in the end he was just so tired and sick and worn down that he couldn't hang on any longer. He was a beautiful man, an old soul and I will never stop thinking about him as my sweet boy. He was funny and emotional and compassionate. I hope he is at peace now, no longer suffering and sick and with Daddy and Bear. Please be kind to each other. You never know what someone is struggling with. A smile and a hello can go a long way. Ricky leaves behind four siblings: Christopher Brown, Laura Rutherford, Tracie Rutherford and Shawn Rutherford. Family and friends may call on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Twomey, LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home 193 High St. Newburyport, MA 01950. Services and burial will be private. THERE IS NO LONGER ANY PARKING AVAILABLE BEHIND THE FUNERAL HOME PER ORDER OF THE CITY OF NEWBURYPORT. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in his memory to the MSPCA, Seeds of Hope, 35 South Street, Biddeford Maine, or a local charity of your choice.

Seattle - Thomas "Jack" Anthony Geary, 77, of Seattle, Washington, passed away on May 6, 2022, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. Jack was brought into this world on June 12, 1944, by his loving parents, John "Jack" Geary and Sarah "Sadie" Geary in Nuns Island, Galway, Ireland, where he spent the early part of his life. As a student, Jack attended Saint Patrick's Primary School in his youth, then graduated from Saint Joseph's Secondary School in 1961. True to his studious nature, Jack went on to earn a college degree in both English and History, as well as a higher diploma in Education in 1965 at University College Galway. Throughout his academic years, Jack was enthralled by recreational activities like rowing and rugby. He won five rugby championship cups, one during secondary school and four while attending college. While Jack was a gifted student and sportsman, most people remember him for his lifelong passion for music of which he enjoyed up until his final day. To Jack, music was life. As a keen musician, he became well known in the folk scene in Galway following college and went on to start his first band in Galway called "The Galway Blazers." Eager to establish a meaningful career in music, Jack left Ireland in 1968 and moved to New York City, where he played music in a band called "The Freedom Folk" with Sean Tyrrell. Together they produced a beautiful folk album called "Apples in Winter." Soon after, Jack moved to Boston and then to Newberry Port, Massachusetts, in 1969. It was in Newberry Port that Jack met the love of his life, Terri, at a restaurant called the Townhouse, in Lowell, Massachusetts. The two married a year later on January 27, 1970. On June 9, 1971, they had their son, Colin Geary. Colin was raised in Newberry Port, Massachusetts. While in Newberry Port Jack formed a band called Harvest Home. For two decades Jack continued to play music, Terri had careers as a flight attendant and a restaurateur. Together they were living their best lives while raising their son. In 1991, Jack and Terri drove across the country to settle in Seattle, Washington, and care for Terri's elderly mother. Jack played music in the local area and in 1993 he and Terry became proprietors of The Owl 'n Thistle Irish Pub, located downtown Seattle. Eager to make this a family business, Colin answered his parents call to move to Seattle and help run the pub. It was at The Owl 'n Thistle that Jack felt the greatest joy entertaining friends and patrons, which he did up until his final days. To this day, The Owl 'n Thistle has been wildly successful and a staple in the community. Thanks to Jack's hands-on approach and generous nature, many of his employees went on to become entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, and successful musicians. Walking into The Owl 'n Thistle for the first time, there's a strong sense of community with patrons and locals but also a rich connection with the Seattle music scene, all which Jack took great pride in fostering. Today, Jack's memory is celebrated by friends and family to whom he loved with all his heart. Jack was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Sadie Geary; his siblings, Angela Packard, John (Poonah) Geary; and his son, Colin Geary. His is survived by his wife, Terri Geary; his brother, Eamonn Geary; his sisters, Maura Castling, Jane Bilyard and sister Susan Quinn. Please join us Monday, May 23, 2022, at 11 a.m., at the Holy Rosary Church in West Seattle, 4139 42nd Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98116. Reception to follow at The Owl 'n Thistle Irish Pub, 808 Post Ave., Seattle, WA 98104.

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!
