The 2021 Audi A5 criminally undersells itself by sharing a name with a size for printer paper. The A5 is a coupe, convertible, or five-door hatchback that looks great. It’s a blank canvas for personality and performance, which is the only thing the A5 has in common with plain paper. This year, it gets a mild power upgrade for models equipped...

Salisbury - Helen (Dekeon) Eramo, 86, of Salisbury, Mass., formerly of Haverhill, passed away June 1, 2020 at Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport. She was born in Haverhill on Oct. 8, 1933, daughter of the late Xenofon and Florence (Kokkales) Dekeon. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 58 years, Thomas P. Eramo, who died in 2012. Her childhood in Haverhill, was centered around large family gatherings, and celebrations of her Greek culture. One of five siblings, Helen loved being a part of a large family, and she spent her adolescent years surrounded by her extended family of cousins. After being married, she was employed as a supervisor at the former Lucent Technologies in North Andover, while raising two children. Balancing career and motherhood, Helen embraced her surrounding family and community in Haverhill and Salisbury Beach. Above all else, Helen's pride was her family. She was a loving and devoted wife to her husband Butch, and loved the life they shared together. Their summer home on Salisbury Beach, was the epicenter of fun, with weekly summer gatherings. She shared her hospitality with neighbors, friends and family. Helen was most happy when surrounded by her children, Cheryl and Tom.

She enjoyed trips to St. Maarten with her daughter, Cheryl and son-in-law, Danny, and her numerous trips to Greece. She loved life and lived each day to its fullest. She loved spending time in the kitchen, spreading her love through her food. She shared her recipes with her grandchildren, teaching them how to carry on traditions of her Greek culture and family history. In her later years, she continued to bring joy through her cooking, teaching her great-grandchildren, Isabelle and Lincoln, her traditional Koulourakia recipe - a memory they will forever cherish. Her final years were spent at living at Salisbury Beach, and while she was self-sufficient, she loved living with her great grandson, Dee.They created many memories together, shared laughs as Helen navigated her way through the internet on her iPad, and held a special bond together. With her daughter Cheryl, and great-grandchildren Hailey, Angelina, and Callen, living just next door, Helen was surrounded by her family daily. Helen is survived by her son, Thomas A. Eramo and his wife, Virginia of Newburyport; her daughter, Cheryl A.

US Special Committee on Aging

The United States Senate's Special Committee on Aging, currently chaired by Senator Susan M. Collins (R-ME), 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!
