September is Healthy Aging Month

You can’t help getting older, But you don’t have to get old -George Burns

Exercise is the key to healthy aging Starting or maintaining a regular exercise routine can be a challenge as you get older. You may feel discouraged by illness, ongoing health problems, or concerns about injuries or falls. Or, if you've never exercised before, you may not know where to begin. Or perhaps you think you're too old or frail, or that exercise is boring or simply not for you. While these may seem like good reasons to slow down and take it easy as you age, they're actually even better reasons to get moving. Exercise can energize your mood, relieve stress, help you manage symptoms of illness and pain, and improve your overall sense of well-being. In fact, exercise is the key to staying strong, energetic, and healthy as you get older. And it can even be fun, too, especially if you find like-minded people to exercise with. No matter your age or your current physical condition, you can benefit from exercise. Reaping the rewards of exercise doesn’t have to involve strenuous workouts or trips to the gym. It’s about adding more movement and activity to your life, even in small ways. Whether you are generally healthy or are managing an illness— even if you’re housebound—there are many easy ways to get your body moving and improve your health and outlook. Five myths about exercise and aging Myth 1: There’s no point to exercising. I’m going to get old anyway. Fact: Exercise and strength training helps you look and feel younger and stay active longer. Regular physical activity lowers your risk for a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer’s and dementia, heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, high blood pressure, and obesity. Not only can exercise help stem the decline in strength and vitality that comes with age, it even improve it. And the mood benefits of exercise can be just as great at 70 or 80 as they were at 20 or 30. Myth 2: Older people shouldn’t exercise. They should save their strength and rest. Fact: Research shows that a sedentary lifestyle is unhealthy for adults over 50. Inactivity often causes older adults to lose the ability to do things on their own and can lead to more hospitalizations, doctor visits, and use of medicines for illnesses. Myth 3: Exercise puts me at risk of falling down. Fact: Regular exercise, by building strength and stamina, prevents loss of bone mass and improves balance, actually reducing your risk of falling. Myth 4: It’s too late. I’m already too old to start exercising. Fact: You’re never too old to start exercising and improve your health! In fact, adults who take up exercise later in life often show greater physical and mental improvements than their younger counterparts. If you’ve never exercised before, or it’s been a while, you won’t be encumbered by the same sports injuries that many regular exercisers experience in later life. In other words, there aren’t as many miles on your clock so you’ll quickly start reaping the rewards. Just begin with gentle activities and build up from there. Myth 5: I’m disabled. I can’t exercise sitting down. Fact: Chair-bound people face special challenges but can lift light weights, stretch, and do chair aerobics, chair yoga, and chair Tai Chi to increase range of motion, improve muscle tone and flexibility, and promote cardiovascular health. Many swimming pools offer access to wheelchair users and there are adaptive exercise programs for wheelchair sports such as basketball.

Ten Things That Will Disappear In Our Lifetime 1. The Post Office Get ready to imagine a world without the post office. They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive. Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills.

2. The Check Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with check by 2018. It costs the financial system billions of dollars a year to process checks. Plastic cards and online transactions will lead to the eventual demise of the check. This plays right into the death of the post office. If you never paid your bills by mail and never received them by mail, the post office would absolutely go out of business.

3. The Newspaper The younger generation simply doesn't read the newspaper. They certainly don't subscribe to a daily delivered print edition. That may go the way of the milkman and the laundry man. As for reading the paper online, get ready to pay for it. The rise in mobile Internet devices and e-readers has caused all the newspaper and magazine publishers to form an alliance. They have met with Apple, Amazon, and the major cell phone companies to develop a model for paid subscription services.

4. The Book You say you will never give up the physical book that you hold in your hand and turn the literal pages I said the same thing about downloading music from iTunes. I wanted my hard copy CD. But I quickly changed my mind when I discovered that I could get albums for half the price without ever leaving home to get the latest music. The same thing will happen with books. You can browse a bookstore online and even read a preview chapter before you buy. And the price is less than half that of a real book. And think of the convenience! Once you start flicking your fingers on the screen instead of the book, you find that you are lost in the story, can't wait to see what happens next, and you forget that you're holding a gadget instead of a book.

5. The Land Line Telephone Unless you have a large family and make a lot of local calls, you don't need it anymore. Most people keep it simply because they've always had it. But you are paying double charges for that extra service. All the cell phone companies will let you call customers using the same cell provider for no charge against your minutes.

6. Music This is one of the saddest parts of the change story. The music industry is dying a slow death. Not just because of illegal downloading. It's the lack of innovative new music being given a chance to get to the people who would like to hear it. Greed and corruption is the problem. The record labels and the radio conglomerates are simply self-destructing. Over 40% of the music purchased today is "catalogue items," meaning traditional music that the public is familiar with. Older established artists. This is also true on the live concert circuit. To explore this fascinating and disturbing topic further, check out the book, "Appetite for Self-Destruction" by Steve Knopper, and the video documentary, "Before the Music Dies."

7. Joined Handwriting (Cursive Writing) Already gone in some schools who no longer teach "joined handwriting" because nearly everything is done now on computers or keyboards of some type (pun not intended)

8. Television Revenues To the networks are down dramatically. Not just because of the economy. People are watching TV and movies streamed from their computers. And they're playing games and doing lots of other things that take up the time that used to be spent watching TV. Prime time shows have degenerated down to lower than the lowest common denominator. Cable rates are skyrocketing and commercials run about every 4 minutes and 30 seconds. I say good riddance to most of it. It's time for the cable companies to be put out of our misery. Let the people choose what they want to watch online and through Netflix.

9. The "Things" That You Own Many of the very possessions that we used to own are still in our lives, but we may not actually own them in the future. They may simply reside in "the cloud." Today your computer has a hard drive and you store your pictures, music, movies, and documents. Your software is on a CD or DVD, and you can always re-install it if need be. But all of that is changing. Apple, Microsoft, and Google are all finishing up their latest "cloud services." That means that when you turn on a computer, the Internet will be built into the operating system. So, Windows, Google, and the Mac OS will be tied straight into the Internet. If you click an icon, it will open something in the Internet cloud. If you save something, it will be saved to the cloud. And you may pay a monthly subscription fee to the cloud provider. In this virtual world, you can access your music or your books, or your whatever from any laptop or handheld device. That's the good news. But, will you actually own any of this "stuff" or will it all be able to disappear at any moment in a big "Poof?" Will most of the things in our lives be disposable and whimsical? It makes you want to run to the closet and pull out that photo album, grab a book from the shelf, or open up a CD case and pull out the insert.

10. Privacy If there ever was a concept that we can look back on nostalgically, it would be privacy. That's gone. It's been gone for a long time anyway.. There are cameras on the street, in most of the buildings, and even built into your computer and cell phone. But you can be sure that 24/7, "They" know who you are and where you are, right down to the GPS coordinates, and the Google Street View. If you buy something, your habit is put into a zillion profiles, and your ads will change to reflect those habits.. "They" will try to get you to buy something else. Again and again and again.

All we will have left that which can't be changed......are our "Memories".

What do we want? Better Memory When do we want it?

Want what?

News for you! From you! About you! From the RR Donnelley retired community In the September 2015 newsletter I wrote an article about my neighbor’s house fire. It happened July 6th 2015 at 2 in the morning. The structural damage was minimal, but smoke saturated everything. They had complete replacement insurance and had to catalog every single item. All food items, including canned and frozen food, had to be discarded. It looks like they will be able to move back in sometime in July more than a year after the fire. I was told they had a smoke detector but the batteries were not installed. So here is your F.Y.I.; CHECK YOUR SMOKE DETECTORS! John Hormanski Bill Schulz

Chicago…. M, & Willard

My wife Mary Ellen and I (after 23 years in Mansfield, Ohio), are moving to a retirement community in Delaware, Ohio. We will be in a “double-single unit” for independent living, (duplex) on a campus adjacent to a three story main building, which houses all the amenities. We enjoy receiving the newsletter: although less and less familiar faces are showing up in the event photos. Well what can one expect, who started working RRD in the fall of 1947, was drafted and came back to Dept. M, then to Operating, a transfer to Willard in 1964, and retirement in 1992 from Quality Control. I turned 87 on May 30th, and in October, we will be celebrating 61 years of marriage. Both of us are doing well, thanks to modern medicine and clean Ohio air. Best regards to you and all the volunteers who produce the newsletter. Joyce Turkowski….Corporate HR-Office Services

Jerry Wilson Timmons


Chicago C-D-Y / Reno NM-NR

Jerry Wilson Timmons, 72, passed away on June 9, 2016 in Reno, NV surrounded by family. He was born on January 5, 1944 in Hammond, IN to Joseph and Helen Timmons. After graduating Hammond Tech High School, he attended classes at Purdue University, Calumet and worked at R.R. Donnelley and Sons in Chicago, IL. In 1986 he moved to Reno, NV to open a new R.R. Donnelley's plant as a supervisor. He retired in 2002. Jerry truly loved his family; his special interests included his family, reading, travel, carpentry shopping and eating at Sizzler's on Thursday with his friends. Making Christmas special for the family brought him great joy. Left to honor and remember Jerry is his beloved wife of 40 years Janet, children, Dana (Russ) Gardner, Denise (Allan) Fairchild, Derenda (Ron) Schubert, Keith (Beth) Timmons, Stacey (Mike) Saulsgiver and Jennifer Timmons, grandchildren: Katie, Jennifer and Rusty Gardner, Emily and Allison Fairchild, Austin and Olivia Schubert, Nathan, Evan, Joel, Chad, Corrine and Griffin Timmons, Billy and Matthew Saulsgiver and four great grandchildren, siblings Ted Timmons, Joseph (Gil) Timmons, Sandra Butler, Shelly Kwolek and Mark Timmons.

Leroy Louis Vos


Leroy Louis "Roy" Vos, 88 of DeKalb, formerly of Dixon, IL died May 24, 2016 at home. Roy was born March 31, 1928 in Chicago to Louis Vos and Emma (Knourek) Vos. He had 2 younger siblings; a brother, Robert and a sister June. Leroy married the love of his life, Lois Drake, on June 15, 1950, in Council Bluffs, IA. Leroy is survived by his wife, Lois; his children, Mark (Kathy) Vos, Jean Kelly, Susan (Michael) Tesch, and John Vos; as well as his 11 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Louis and Emma Vos and his siblings, Robert Vos and June Bahr. Roy graduated from Bruce high School in Bruce, WI, and went on to the Coyne Electric Trade School in Chicago, IL. He was a Licensed Electrical Inspector for the city of Chicago and used his skills as an Electrician at R.R. Donnelley Publishing Company for 44 years. He was born in Chicago, raised in Bruce, WI, and returned to Chicago after High School. He married Lois and they raised their 4 kids together in Elmhurst. After retirement, he and Lois moved to a beautiful 3 acre property in Dixon. In October 2015, Roy and Lois moved to DeKalb to be closer to family. Leroy liked to work in his garage. He always had a couple projects going and took pleasure in fixing things. He also enjoyed working in the large garden he and Lois planted at the Dixon property. He was especially proud of his tomatoes. When the kids were young, Roy and Lois took their family on a number of road trips, camping along the way. Roy took pride in the fact that they had been in all but 2 states during these family camping trips. Roy was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1958 at an assembly in Chicago. He served as a Servant and as an Elder in the Villa Park Congregation, and then brought his years of Christian experience to the Dixon Congregation. He was a diligent student of the bible, often digging in to research as he prepared for the meetings and sharing what he learned with fellow believers and others. The story Roy loved to tell the most was how he and Lois met. She was a student x-ray technician at the hospital where he was taken for a knee injury. Even as his memory was failing, his love for Lois never faded and eventually most conversations started with “It all started in Chicago” and ended with “and that’s how I met my wife, Lois”.

Gerald M. Sheehan

September 2016

Chicago Financial

Gerald M. "Jerry" Sheehan, age 76, of South Holland, IL, passed away peacefully Thursday, July 21, 2016. Beloved husband of 51 years to Barbara J. Sheehan, nee Karabin. Devoted father of Timothy (Amy), Kevin, and Michael (Lisa) Sheehan. Proud grandfather of Joseph, Jennifer, Katherine, Caroline, and Chloe. Dear brother of Patricia, James and the late Jack Sheehan. Preceded in death by his parents John and Ann Sheehan. Jerry was born and raised on Chicago's southeast side and graduated from Mount Carmel High School in 1957. Soon thereafter he began his career at RR Donnelley & Sons where he faithfully worked in many capacities for 45 years. At some point during his younger years, Jerry earned the nickname "Moon", and it just so happens that a beautiful full moon lit up the sky on the night prior to his passing. A lifelong devoted fan of the Chicago White Sox, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and NFL Cardinals franchise, Jerry later grew very fond of the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs. He loved analyzing weekly NFL matchups and had great success in various local and national pick-'em contests. He was a lifelong golfer and greatly enjoyed golfing with his sons and his southeast-side childhood buddies. Another of Jerry's favorites was his mother's homemade fried chicken and bread. He also enjoyed reading, gardening, and Civil War history. Above all, Jerry was a devoted family man, and always exuded great selflessness to not only his family, but to everyone he knew.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to their family and friends Crawfordsville 40th Annual Retiree Breakfast July 13th

The Crawfordsville Division hosted the 40th Annual Retiree Breakfast on July 13th. Attending were over 260 retirees, including those from other Divisions, one of which was Gary Calleo from the Harrisonburg Division. Gary, a former Crawfordsville Division Director, who just retired in May of this year, so this, was his first "non-official" visit to the event. Steve Seamans spoke about the company activity and mentioned that there is only one plant doing any telephone directories any more. (We all have seen our phone books get thinner and thinner, as people move to wireless cell service and are no longer listed.)

Steve mentioned the Moore Langen plant in Terre Haute, which RRD acquired in 2015, as being a great asset to assisting the Crawfordsville Division book production, producing many components that perhaps were previously customer furnished from other sheet-fed printers. Moore Langen has been a real help in meeting some customer ship date deadlines. One example was said to be a Scholastic Publishing reprint of six Harry Potter books, and the publisher somehow missed getting furnished jackets to us. The Division offered to preserve the schedule, which could be done by having them printed at Moore Langen. While Scholastic was committed to the current printer for this printing, the concept of the impact of the offer was so profound it has opened doors for other component opportunities moving forward. The Division is still producing over 200 million soft and hard bound books annually and has been actively seeking new employees. However the job market in the area has changed and many firms are advertising for help. That puts RRD in somewhat of a bind with obtaining people who want to work, advance and provide for themselves. Sometimes the attitude of younger people is that they don't want to do "factory work". We all can recall when the stability of a job at RRD meant a lot to our future and the security of our families. Also attending the event was Joe Kozar, from the St. Charles office, who is working with many retiree programs. He is also the coordinator of the Lakeside Classic productions, making sure we all get out books each December. Joe talked about the Retiree Newsletter and passed-out LED flashlights for everyone, imprinted with the RRD Retiree address info. After the breakfast all attendees received a copy of the latest James Patterson and Nelson DeMille novels, both of which were printed and bound at the Division. These two bestselling authors continue to have millions of readers. Lyle Schmidt

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable. When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love.... I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness. The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.' Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?'

Why are there so many countries that have a name that ends in stan? Denoting that it is a piece of the earth associated with a particular group of people, the suffix -stan simply means “land of.” An ancient suffix of Persian origins, for many people, particularly in Central Asia, the addition of –stan to the name of their cultural or ethnic group identifies that a certain place belongs to them, e.g., Kazakhstan is the “land of the Kazakhs.” -Stan‘s roots go even further back than Persia, however, to the Indo-Iranian element, *stanam, which meant both “place” or even more literally, “where one stands.” This old construction is derived from the even earlier Proto-Indo-European root *sta, which also meant “to stand.” The use of a suffix to denote “land of” is not unique to -stan, however. In English, we often use –land to identify a nation or place, and familiar words include England, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, and Thailand, as well as Maryland and Newfoundland. Other languages use the convention as well, such as the German Deutschland.

Why do we call people from many countries the name of their country ended with an, like Canada and Canadian? Adding –an at the end of country or place names to identify a person’s heritage or ethnicity also traces its origins back to ancient times, and the Proto-Indo-European root *-no-, which meant “pertaining to.” More recently (but still relatively ancient), in Latin this element gave rise to –anus, as in Rōma (“Rome”) → Rōmānus (“Roman”). Over the years this has in turn morphed into our current ending –an, as in American, Mexican and Romanian. Not exclusive to regional references, we also see this nomenclature in many other words like Christus (“Christ”) → christiānus (“christian”). In addition, in English, this –an is often modified with the addition of an “i,” such as in the aforementioned Romanian and christian, as well as in things like Brazilian, Canadian and Parisian. And if you’re wondering, the suffix –ish, as in British, comes from the Proto-Germanic suffix *-iska which meant “of the nativity or country of.” It morphed into the Old English –isc before becoming the modern English, Irish, Spanish, etc.
