How about Harold Peary, bet-ter known as "The Great Gilder-sleeve", the pompous next-door neighbor who ran a girdle factory then later moved to Summerfield and became the Water Commis-sioner. And then there was "The Old-Timer" played by Bill Thomp-son; a hard-of-hearing senior citi-zen with a penchant for distorting jokes, prefacing each one by saying "That ain't the way I heared it!"; al-ways referring to Fibber as "John-ny" and Molly as "Daughter". My personal favorite was Gale Gor-don who played both Mayor La-Trivia and Foggy Williams, a local weatherman and next-door neigh-bor. Did you know that he also played "Flash Gordon" on the ra-dio? God love 'em, they were "The Best". v Gil Moon 1310 AM, KFKA News Talk Radio. Sunday 6 p.m. til 12 a.m. Could You See The Closet?For decades the hall closet at 79 Wistful Vista was among the most vivid images in our "Theatre of the Mind". There wasn't any-one who didn't know that when Fibber went to open that door, we were going to be treated to an explosion of laughter as every one of us pic-tured our own home and our own closet full of "Lord Knows What". Jim Jordan and Marian Driscoll from Peoria, Illinois met in church and following a "Whirl Wind" courtship, married in 1918. Then, beginning in 1927, these two "Master Vaudevillians" turned a small town husband and wife into the most beloved couple on radio for way more that thirty years. Marian was gentle and sweet natured, just as her alter-ego Molly would become. And Jim, well nobody ever had a bad word to say about Jim Jordan and he gave a lot of himself to the en-Gil MoonFREE Radon News Talk RadioTest KitsYour home can be a source of a very harmful environmental pollutant known as radon. Radon is an odorless, color-less, radioactive gas that results from the natural decay of urani-um. Uranium is found in rock, soil, and water. Radon typically moves up through the ground into your home through the foundation. Radon gas decays into radioactive particles that get trapped in the lungs. They can lead to lung cancer over the course of a lifetime. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Nearly 46% of all homes in Colorado may have elevated levels. The only way to know is to test and takes only a few minutes of your time to set up. The Weld County Depart-ment of Public Health and En-vironment, 1555 N. 17th Ave. Greeley, has free short-term radon kits available, one per household, while supplies last Monday-Friday, 8-5pm.

For many, changing careers in-volves furthering their education. Since it is not practical for most people to return to school as a full-time student, continuing educa-tion often occurs through on-line programs that accommodate the working-student's schedule. Be-fore enrolling on-line, do your homework and make sure the edu-cation you are going to pay for will pay off in the long run. Check the credibility of the educational institution. There are many legitimate on-line education programs including those offered by accredited colleges and uni-versities, but there are also many scams so buyer beware. Ken Buck Make sure the program you are considering is accredited. You can check accreditation through the Council for Higher Educa-tion Accreditation or through the Department of Education. Both organizations warn of "diploma mills" or agencies that offer de-grees, diplomas or certificates for a fee without requiring an individual to complete additional education or course work. Check with the Better Business Bureau as to the reputation of the agency or school you are consid-ering. Enter the agency or school name in Google and see if com-plaints surface through that search. Many times when a company has not performed well, people will post their complaints in blogs or web sites to warn others about their experience and frustration. If a site or school asks for only a fee to be paid prior to admission, be leery. A reputable school requires additional admission information such as educational history. Also, beware of programs that offer de-grees, for a fee, based on only your life or career experiences.v Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck can be reached at www.weldda.comElder CareFlu Shot TimeWith the advent of cooler weather people begin thinking about the fall colors, sweaters, higher heating bills and flu. Just like birds going south, it's time for people to start flocking to flu clinics. For 2010, flu vaccines have three virus strains - two Influenza A, including 2009 H1N1, and an Influenza B. The CDC recommends annu-al flu vaccination for everyone 6 months and older, an expansion of the previous recommendation to now include adults ages 19 to 49. Also this year, seniors have a new weapon in the fight against influenza - FluzoneĀ® High-Dose vaccine. This new vaccine, made up of inactivated influenza virus, is specifically tailored to adults 65 and over. It is designed to generate a more robust immune response for this age group than the stan-dard dose of flu vaccine. As people grow older, research Richard Griesshas shown that the immune sys-tem gets weaker. This weakening makes for higher susceptibility to infection and also less responsive to vaccination. Persons 65 and older suffer disproportionately from seasonal flu and associated complications than the younger population. While only making up 15% of the U.S. population, this group accounts for 65% of the annual hospitalizations and 90% of the deaths due to seasonal influenza annually. Rehabilitation and Visiting Nurse Association has acquired a supply of the FluzoneĀ® High-Dose vaccine and it will be available at the many flu clinics RVNA con-ducts throughout Weld and Lar-imer Counties. The clinic schedule is being finalized and will soon be available on the RVNA website For more in-formation or to schedule a clinic, please call 970-330-5655 or 970-225-9399.v If you have any questions, contact RVNA. In Weld County call 970-330-5655 and in Larimer County, call 970-225-9399.
