“Drugstores in America used to be small, with one pharmacist. Today a CVS or a Rite Aid flourishes with an army of clerks under an acre of roof, selling canned soup, wheelchairs, sneakers, nurse practitioners, extension cords, ATMs, powdered milk, bicycles, pancake mix, canned hams, UPS, and aspirin. These mega-emporia lack a soda fountain, which old drugstores favored, where you could sit on a stool to sip a cherry Coke assembled by the pharmacist. The same chap in the old days could manufacture a chocolate sundae with a maraschino cherry on top, or under duress combine powders for your grandmother’s arthritis. There was one other item that you’ll never find in a Rite Aid. Books!”

Senior energy program money available for air conditioning: Flagler County has a program available for qualified residents who need help with household air conditioning. “The Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program is designed to help low income households who have at least one member over the age of 60, and who is experiencing a cooling emergency,” said Joe Mayer, director of Community Services. Eligible households may receive one benefit for up to $600 for the cooling season. The money is to make payments to utility companies, to make repairs to equipment like air conditioners, or to otherwise resolve a home cooling crisis. A home cooling crisis exists when one or more of the following conditions apply: the household’s home cooling energy source has been cut off; a household has been notified that its energy source will be cut off; a household has been given notice that their energy bills are past due; or, a household has other problems with a lack of cooling in the home. To receive the assistance, proper documentation including gross income, family size and other factors determine program eligibility. For more information, contact Flagler County Senior Services at 386-586-2324, extension 3621.
