Nominations open for Senior of the Week

Seniors are an important part of the community who are often not recognized as much as they should be. Do you know a senior who uses his or her retirement time to volunteer or help others?

A “Senior of the Week” will be highlighted on Sundays on the Senior Living page in The Newnan Times-Herald. To nominate someone you think is worthy of the honor, email kandice@newnan.com with the nominee’s name, why he or she should be the Senior of the Week, and a photo.

May 31 deadline to get Medicare ebook

Medicare beneficiaries have until May 31 to register to receive a “Medicare & You” electronic handbook this fall. A physical copy explaining Medicare basics typically is sent out each year.

The new ebook will be searchable, so beneficiaries can quickly find the Medicare information they’re looking for. Registrants will also receive emails throughout the year when major updates are made to the handbook, like cost changes.

To register to receive the ebook, visit www.medicare.gov .

Items for consideration as Golden Years Briefs should be emailed to kandice@newnan.com, faxed to 770-253-2538, or mailed to Attn: Golden Years Briefs, The Newnan Times-Herald, P.O. Box 1052, Newnan, GA 30264. Email submissions are preferred.
