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.

Amesbury - Laurette Dupuis "Memere", of Amesbury, MA, passed away on June 11, 2024 at the age of 92. Born in Fall River, MA, she married Omer Dupuis and had children Richard Dupuis and Denise Tamburello. She was a social person who made friends everywhere she went and loved the details and gossip of others' lives. People loved her back. She was bold, lively, funny, and always put others first. After retirement, she moved to Amesbury into her daughter and son-in-law's, Victor Tamburello, home to experience life with her grandchildren. There she enjoyed days bringing them to and from school, playing cards, picking blueberries from bushes behind the house, and dressing countless Barbies. She is survived by these grandchildren, Alexander, Audra, and Abbey. Despite her invaluable role as their "2nd mother", she always found time to go back to Fall River to keep in touch with her son and his daughter, Julie Dupuis, and numerous friends. Laurette described her four grandchildren as the greatest pleasure in her life. In older age, she was a member of the Amesbury Senior Center, enjoyed visits from her son and walks with her grandson, (her favorite), eating sweet treats she probably shouldn't have, and talking to the neighbors. The love she gave will live on in the hearts of her family. An hour of visitation will be held on Wednesday, June 19, 2024 from 9 to 10 a.m. at the E.V. Jutras & Sons Funeral Home, 118 Friend St., in Amesbury, MA. followed by a 10:30 a.m. Mass at St. Andre Bessette Parish, 2 School St.,.in Amesbury, MA. Donations in her name may be made to the charity of one's choice.

His family is grateful for Scott's dear friends Caroline Henderson and her daughters Grace and Kendall, and James Gaddis of Roswell GA, all of whom faithfully helped Scott in his struggle to fight cancer. Scott loved sports, mostly baseball and softball, and he always enjoyed hearing about his great niece's softball, and his great nephew's baseball games. He loved his Red Sox, and never missed watching them on TV. Throughout his life, he personally enjoyed golfing and fishing. He had a quick wit and was always ready with a joke, even up to the end of his life. His family and friends will miss Scott's sense of humor, and their memories of him will generate smiles and laughter. There will be a private family gathering in memory of Scott.

She was 79. She is survived by her two daughters, Councilor Heather Shand and state Representative Dawne Shand, her son-in-law, Dr. Brian Krisler, and her granddaughter, Mae Shand Krisler, of Newburyport, MA. Dorothy was hired in 1967 by Superintendent Joseph Pickard when Selma began integrating its public schools. She taught at Frances Thomas School before spending the next 27 years teaching first grade at Meadowview Elementary, where she led its famous children's circus program. Two generations of students ended the school year performing as lion tamers, magicians, knife throwers, and tightrope walkers. For three decades, she pulled her colleagues and family into this act, always organized at the last minute. Her enthusiasms and laughter made her a much-loved ringmaster, even when she was behind the curtain. She was most proud of her ability to teach reading skills to her students. A member of the professional organization, Delta Kappa Gamma, she gave up her position when the organization refused to stop holding its Girl of the Year program at a segregated venue. A person of fierce convictions, when she said the words, "If I ruled the world," everyone knew to beware. The oldest child of Louise Turner Barnes and Walter Braxton Barnes, Dorothy was born in Orrville, Alabama on March 27,1945. She graduated from Orrville High School ('63) and Livingston State College ('67) before spending her career with the Selma Public School System. She is survived by her siblings: Oliver (Louise) Barnes, Roger (Debbie) Barnes, Michael (Bonita) Barnes, Larry Barnes, Robert Barnes, Donna (Ad) Veal and Dianne (Hank) Gaines, and predeceased by her brothers Ronnie and Billy. She was married for 49 years to James Edward "Buck" Shand, a cattle and dairy farmer, who died in 2018. In retirement, she became a master gardener and loved cooking for people. A doting grandmother, she made certain that Mae Shand Krisler's visits were as joyful and fun-filled as her first grade classroom had been. A spiritual person, Dorothy Shand maintained a lifelong interest in different faiths. At various times in her life, she was a member of the Orrville Baptist, Uniontown Baptist, and Marion Junction Baptist Churches, Immaculate Conception Church in Orrville, and St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Selma. A service will be held on June 15th, 10:30 a.m. at St. Paul's, 210 Lauderdale Street in Selma. Reception to follow.

After the October 7 attack by Hamas on Israel that killed more than 1,100 people, President Joe Biden expressed America's backing for its Middle Eastern ally.

But that same month, polls showed that support for Israel among American voters was not unwavering. And that, in fact, support was split across generations.

That split between young voters poured out into the streets in November. Two big marches – one organized by pro-Palestinian groups and one by pro-Israeli groups – occurred in Washington.

Whether or not Joe Biden gets re-elected in 2024 will depend a lot on if he can repeat his 2020 success with young voters. But a split over U.S. support for Israel may get in his way.
