People are living longer. Or are they? That's an important question as policymakers debate whether to raise the eligibility age from 65 to 67 for receiving Medicare benefits.

People are living longer anyway, and besides, the shift would save Medicare billions of dollars.

Litchfield teen battles rare disease

January 2, 2013

LITCHFIELD - - No one ever expects to get the news that they have a rare, and very dangerous disease. Tyler Snow is just like anybody else, never thinking that sort of thing would happen to him. He was wrong.
Now the battle is on, and Tyler’s friends and family are pitching in to help by hosting a special fundraising event Wednesday, Jan. 9. The event will include a bake sale and nachos - and an opportunity to make donations - and will run from noon to 6 p.m. at the Litchfield High School new gym on main street in Litchfield.
