Submitted by Senior Services for South SoundElizabeth Raybould prepares fresh fruit to be included in a lunch at the Olympia Senior Center.On July 9, Senior Services for South Sound (SSSS) started a waiting list for seniors in need of Meals On Wheels (MOW) in Mason or Thurston Counties. This means that community elders in need of a home-delivered meal who are not already enrolled in the program as of that date will not be served until additional program funding is secured. People need Meals On Wheels for a variety of reasons, including that they can no longer safely drive to the grocery store or stand long enough to cook their own meal. Some are just being released from the hospital or nursing home and need meals on a temporary basis. In addition to the Meals on Wheels waiting list, they are currently considering closing meal service days at two of our community dining meal sites.“Our program provides seniors with nutritious meals, social support and a chance to have fun. We run an efficient and effective program, but we can’t tighten our belts any further,” said Cathy Visser, Senior Nutrition Director at Senior Services for South Sound. “More seniors than ever are in need of our services…unfortunately, food and fuel costs continue to increase and traditional funding streams are decreasing. Last year we lost federal funds. This year, the decreases are being seen locally as community priorities have changed. It’s the perfect storm. At this point, I feel that the community needs to step forward and say enough, we support our community seniors!”Each year, Senior Services for South Sound serves over 100,000 meals to 2,700 seniors in Mason and Thurston Counties. The meals are planned by a Registered Dietitian to meet 1/3 of a seniors daily dietary needs; and are modified to meet special dietary restrictions. The emphasis is on serving freshly prepared food and includes at least three servings of fruits and vegetables per meal. The program provides more than just food.“Our Meals On Wheels volunteer delivery folks spend time with Meals On Wheels clients and develop friendships with the people they serve. For some of our more rural clients, their volunteer driver may be the only person with whom they have human interaction for the day or week. Our drivers provide a check on the welfare of seniors they serve…more than once a driver has arrived to deliver a meal and found a senior in distress. We’ve called “911” on a senior’s behalf twice in the past 6 months.” Cathy stated.Senior Services for South Sound is now reaching out to the general public for help. “We can’t solve this problem in isolation,” said Eileen McKenzieSullivan, SSSS ExecutiveRick Miller helps prepare chicken salad for Meals On Wheels lunch.Director. “We want the local community to know that there is a need for meals for seniors and we need their support to make it happen.” Eileen explained that they cut Friday meals in Olympia and Rochester last year when a portion of their federal nutrition funding was lost. At that time, they reached out to the local senior assisted living community for help. “We were lucky to have a number of local Senior Living centers such as Evergreen Convalescent, Bonaventure, Capital Place and Puget Sound Health Care provide us meals for our site. We thought we would need their help for a few months, but they have continued to support Friday meal service at our Olympia Senior Center.”Cathy and Eileen both explained that there are many ways to help. “While making a donation is a direct way to support our program, we are also in need of volunteers to prepare, serve or deliver meals. There are eight meal sites in Mason and Thurston County, stretching from Yelm, Tenino and Rochester in Thurston County up to Belfair in Mason County.” Eileen continued, “Every dollar really helps. While the meals are provided to clients for a suggested donation of $3-$6 per meal, they cost nearly $7 to prepare and the average donation we receive per meal is less than $2 dollars.” Eileen and Cathy both also mentioned that they are grateful for the ongoing partnership they have with the Lewis-Mason-Thurston Area Agency on Aging. “Really without their partnership, we wouldn’t be able to continue serving the meals we do.” Eileen stated.If you would like to donate to the Senior Nutrition Program at Senior Services for South Sound or learn more about volunteer opportunities please call them at 360.586.6181 or visit their website at www.SouthSoundSeniors.org.

Rayudu announced his retirement from cricket after the Indian selectors chose Mayank Agarwal as the replacement for an injured Vijay Shankar, even though he was on their official standby list for the 2019 World Cup.Advertisement Rayudu, who is currently playing for Grand Slams in the TNCA League, said his break from white-ball cricket isn’t permanent and that he is eager to be a part of his IPL team Chennai Super Kings.Advertisement “I haven’t thought much but I would prepare well to come back to white-ball cricket as soon as possible. I love the game, obviously. See ambition and targets are one thing but it still is the game I love. It is about playing cricket,” he said.When asked about his opinion on being selected for the national team he replied, “Of course, who will say no to India?”Advertisement The CSK batsman was left out of India’s World Cup squad and all-rounder Vijay Shankar was selected in his place. He voiced his disappointment when MSK Prasad, the chief selector, vouched for Shankar’s 3-dimensional qualities over him.

India, despite having a flawless run in the earlier matches, ducked in the final hurdle before clinching the trophy, as the Aussie women glimmered in both their batting and bowling performance. With a massive 85 run victory, the 2018 champions successfully defended their title, making it their fifth T20 World Cup trophy.Advertisement Image Courtesy: ICCAlyssa Healy and Beth Mooney, the two Aussie opening batswomen displayed their fireworks at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Mandhana, although looking to carry the chase forward with two fours, lost her wicket on just 11.Indian keeper Taniya Bhatia suffered a woeful concussion, and had to retire hurt on a score of 0. The rest of Indian batswomen failed to make a mark against the Aussie bowlers, except Deepti Sharma, who’s appreciable effort of 33 was brining some hope in the middle order.Women in Blue skipper Harmanpreet Kaur’s bad form continued, and except Veda Krishnamurthy (19) and Richa Ghosh (18), the rest of the batting squad failed to cross the 10 run mark, as Australia exhausted all their wickets on a score of 99.Megan Schutt, who recently expressed her reluctancy on playing India, picked four wickets in the second innings.

Selkirk now sits one point behind the Clan in second place and also holds a one-point lead on third place TRU. The Saints and SFU have both played 15 games, giving them two games in hand on Thompson Rivers.”We asked the guys to compete hard for a full 60 minutes on Friday night and they came through,” said Selkirk head coach Jeff Dubois following the weekend.”TRU is a tough team to play in their rink, but we limited their shots and scoring opportunities and created some good chances over the second half of the game. Our offence carried us on a lot of nights in the fall, but you can’t count on that every game. It was satisfying to get two points on the road due to a very solid defensive effort.” On Friday, the Saints fell behind TRU on a first period power-play marker but rebounded with goals in the second from Tanner Lenting, Logan Proulx and Beau Taylor. Selkirk controlled play much of the night, outshooting the WolfPack in all three periods including a 20-9 margin over the final 40 minutes. Chris Hurry picked up the win in goal, turning aside 17 shots. Former Saints netminder Stephen Wolff took the loss in the TRU crease despite a strong 27-save performance. Saturday, the Saints and Clan — both with 11-3-0 records — faced off for first place in Burnaby.Stefan Gonzales scored with the man-advantage midway through the first period and Logan Proulx doubled the lead before intermission. But SFU rebounded in the second and scored a pair of goals before taking their first lead of the night with 4:45 remaining in the third.Proulx came through again for the Saints, however, converting a pass through the slot from Jackson Garrett to tie the game with 2:06 to play. Neither team scored during a back-and-forth overtime frame, and SFU would go on to take the win after Jono Ceci and Trevor Milner each beat Chris Hurry on shootout attempts. “We put together very good road periods in the first and third but fell asleep a bit in the second and paid the price for some careless mistakes,” said Dubois.”SFU has a ton of skill and they’re going to capitalize when you give them the opportunity. We outshot them in the rink and had the better chances, so it stings a bit to lose the way we did. First place is one of our core goals this season and it’s still under our control to make that happen, so we’ll move on and prepare for tough games next weekend.” Selkirk College hosts Eastern Washington University on Friday at 8:00 PM at the Castlegar Complex before traveling to Spokane on Saturday to complete the home-and-home series. They say beggars can’t be choosers.While were not insisting the Selkirk College Saints are beggars, the defending B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League champs will be happy with the three-point weekend on the road.Selkirk began the 2014 portion of the BCIHL regular season schedule beating Thompson Rivers University by a 3-1 score before falling to Simon Fraser University 4-3 in a shootout.
