Family Matters
In February, the NewsTribune reported the story of Princeton resident Lois Simon, 90, meeting her grandson for the very first time since he was born. Recently, she got to meet her great-great granddaughter, Paisley Renkin, while posing for five-generation photos. Pictured are (back row, from left) Jake Renkin (Paisley’s father), Randy Renkin (Simon’s grandson), (front row) Bill Crowder (Simon’s son), Simon and Paisley. Simon purchased Paisley’s crocheted dress years ago. The dress has been passed through the generations.Submitted photo

Have a wild child?
Children love to be read to and look at colorful pictures. But who’s to say we can’t help them learn to feel better about themselves and to celebrate the differences in each of us. Like author Todd Parr, who has more than 30 quirky picture books to his name, local libraries can help choose books for children no matter their interests.

How long will you live?
Joe Navarro was reasonably ready for Marine Corps boot camp in 1970, having wrestled and played high school football, and stayed fit by running and working in the trades. Now a 62-year-old lawyer in Ottawa, Navarro has through most of his adult life passed for 10 years younger. Balky knees have kept him from running in recent years, but he stays trim through diet, golf and tending his 4-acre property. Not least among his tips for enjoying a long, healthy life are making an annual visit to the doctor.

Local students and their parents were welcomed to the event with a free family-fun day that featured games, music and bounce-houses as well as a free hotdog meal for everyone.

Finding meaning

Respecting or learning from one’s elders isn’t exactly a top priority for most teens. They’re too busy texting or mastering the latest social media platform to relate to the idea that their grandparents ever battled teenage issues like acne or fitting in. For Maya Van Wagenen, though, digging up a previous generation’s teen scene actually helped her. She survived the middle-school blues thanks to “Betty Cornell’s Teenage Popularity Guide,” published in 1953. Her experiences following the guide led Van Wagenen to write her own book, “Popular,” which has now been optioned for a movie.
