Benton Franklin fair offers more ‘extreme fun’

The fair added several new attractions aimed at younger adults, who might not normally attend the fair for the rides or the animals. Adults can play video games, participate in human bumper cars or enjoy a Bloody Mary.

Aging parents with lots of stuff – and the children who dread inheriting it

As baby boomers grow older, the volume of unwanted keepsakes and family heirlooms is poised to grow – along with the number of delicate conversations about what to do with them. According to a 2014 U.S. census report, more than 20 percent of America’s population will be 65 or older by 2030. As these waves of older adults start moving to smaller dwellings, assisted living facilities or retirement homes, they and their kin will have to part with household possessions that the heirs simply don’t want.
