I Page 2A- The News - Friday, July 28, 2017 Loretta 's Living Tips By Loretta Humble Special to The News MALAKOFF-This column is about me trying to live as well as possible as I age, with a particular emphasis on trying to stay as men- tally sharp as I can. The idea is to pass along anything I think might help anybody else do the same. One of the things I read and repeated to you was about those games like Lumosity, that you subscribe to which sup- posedly will help keep your brain working bet- ter. I subscribed, and started playing. I bought the family version, so I could share with Carl and anybody else who would try it. Carl tried it a few times. I have been doing my best to get somebody II else to do it so I can get my money's worth out of the deal. Nobody else has been willing. No- body! I did it faithfully for a couple of months. My initial skills as- sessmen't wasn't any- thing to brag about, but my scores got better for a while as I kept playing. Then my scores stalled, stopped improving, and it Living Well See page 3A Community Calendar ANNUAL ALEY PICNIC The annual Aley picnic will be held Friday, July 28 at CR 2138, 4 miles west of Seven Points off of FM 85.

"Quick Lane employs factory trained technicians to ensure complete proficiency with your vehicle By Emily Lundy Special to The News TRINIDAD-Those top tennis players who make the social media now have a new con- tender: uniformed dress. I saw the same outfit recently on two differ- ent women in a televised tennis game. I thought it coincidental. But more women will be wearing these stylish uniforms of exact design. Do we need a dress code for going in public in other places? Uniforms are not new to the American way of life. Some reveal rank, type of work handled, even the occupation one is in. Maybe the military started it. Then sports teams. Proba- bly no sport has seen a more radical change than women's basket- ball. In high school in the 1950s, we girls played round ball in the shortest of bottoms with matching shirts to tuck in or out. Boys' teams had sim- ilar suits with sleeveless shirts. Then a round ball player after my day found herself in the same sports style with added warm-up pants and jacket. As she prepared to leave her vealed. He set a mode. home for a game with her granddad visiting, he said, "Now that's a simple, decent suit you have on for a game. Why your mom and her sis- ters wore bloomer legs and sleeveless shirts I'll The famous and talented who dress in "bear no expense" can be pretty. A man really looks nice in a tuxedo.

Granddad exploded, "Great Gobs of all that's Holy! You can't go out like that!" Now basketball uni- forms have changed drastically with long loose legs for both girls and boys, no fit, nothing to limit mobility. This pracOce could have spread to Other pub- lic school clothing but didn't. "Dress any way you want" is the clothing theme today fortoo many. Where "dressing up" for church started I don't know. It was followed by the Easter Parades. Now nice clothing, casually casual or see-through in church can be found with any length of skirt. A little tact and cover up is all that's needed. Jesus Christ walked his land in simple, inexpen- sive robes, with little re- to watch the customers. The one that unsettles me is the revealing of animpendingnewbom. One evening in a large store, a young woman was checking out hold- ing about a two-year old, and her swelled stomach was uncov- ered between her short shorts and her brief top. A gentleman friend be- hind me, said, "Is this what they call 'sexy'?" I replied "Only to a few hopefully," and sighed. Anything goes and does. Indecent mindset has to play a part in riot- ous behavior in malls, parades, public trans- portation and wilder music. Yes, we're still a free country in most direc- tions, and some live in poverty. Neither one should rule the percent- age of skin seen when in public. The foll usinesses help support area nonprofit organizations and events.
