    Can redevelopment help preserve a neighborhood's soul? Uptown Denver's main street straddles the line between its roots and the city's ongoing boom
    Highlighted by some visible building vacancies --and one big redevelopment project-- East 17th Avenue today is a thoroughfare straddling the line between new and old in Denver's Uptown neighborhood. With dense, infill development going in, some are hoping 17th maintains its low-slung, 20th century roots amid the city's ongoing boom.

    By: Bill Shapard, SoonerPoll.com The rising cost of prescription drugs is not a new story.

Livable Communities in New Jersey 2018

AARP New Jersey endorses the efforts of all neighborhoods, cities, towns, and localities to make each and every New Jersey community a safe and inclusive place to live for people of all ages. This includes providing safe, walkable streets; age friendly housing and transportation options; access to needed services; and opportunities for residents to be active members of their communities. These initiatives are propelled by the reality that these resources, among many others, influence whether a person can remain in the community and for how long. Once in place, those resources enhance personal independence; allow residents to age in place; and foster residents’ engagement in the community’s civic, economic, and social life.

Care-FULL Conversations: The Last One Standing Podcast

My godmother, Aunt Jane, was one of my greatest mentors. She was full of life! I always thought of her as my personal Auntie Mame. She lived life large to say the very least. She married a man, my Uncle Doc, who was 12 years her senior. She always knew that she would probably outlive him. However, she never imagined she would outlive all of her friends as well. By witnessing the journey of my beloved Aunt Jane, I learned how hard it is to be the last one standing.
