I just read an article yesterday about how marketing to and targeting baby boomers is front and center for many major corporations and organizations. And that they have not figured out how to do it effectively. One of the areas that I think would be of interest to boomers is retirement planning. Apparently many boomers do not do it. And many organizations would probably benefit from looking at providing services in this area. I recently found the site Retirement And Good Living that offers good information on a variety of retirement topics including health/fitness, nutrition, finances and more that may be of interest to boomers. I never understand why more people do not take advantage of information on these type of sites. In most cases it is free.

This council, although they have done a considerable amount of work for CBS or at least have spent a lot of our tax dollars as Joan has said they have forgotten the people who built this town. The seniors who live on the byroads, not in subdivisions, who don't have good roads to drive on and nowhere to walk if they want to . Those who have been taxed on property they spent years to aquire and who now live on fixed incomes, while their property is assed as if they were earning the same as those now in the workforce. I guess this council would like to see them sell their property force them out of the town they built.Off course theseniors are foregotten, but remember one thing election time is comming. If youn are not satisfied then vote, let the present council know how you feel.

You said it yourself Joan, you are richer, healthier and more educated than your parents. So why are you complaining about not having community programs setup to keep you occupied? As far as I know, there are walking and hiking trails throughout CBS and the rest of the metro area free to use. There are gyms to use, and seems how you have all this expendable income, go join one like the 20-40 year olds are doing. Sports facilities are available to rent, pools have free swims that everyone can participate in, golf courses love the baby boomers..... must I go on? Baby boomers have this entitled attitude because you make up such a large portion of the population.
