Staying Informed through Inside Vero

For those of you who miss my Vero Beach – Indian River County articles on Bea-isms I would just steer you in the direction of Inside Vero. Mark Schumann and the folks who work hard at keeping Inside Vero a local e-magazine blog/newspaper have my blessings and I will continue to steer you to some interesting articles on Inside Vero.

Personally speaking, this last election, both nationally and locally has taken its toll on me as I began to realize that the choices, both nationally and locally, were not very satisfying. A lot of lies and innuendoes and lack of transparency has been foisted on the voters in both instances.

And, if that was not enough for me to realize that I am not willing or able to keep up with local issues that made Bea-isms what it was, I had the passing of my dear husband Steve happen in late January.

Therefore, I have decided to devote more of my free time to pressing on with my book titled (at this time) The Septuagenarian. I have decided to keep Bea-isms intact and in doing so I have created a new tab on Bea-isms called the septuagenarian where I will be posting chapters of the book. None of these chapters of the book will be complete without telling you all that I would like to see you blog in on some of the subjects that I will be writing about in the Septuagenarian.

My book should be of interest to all of you weather you are between the ages of 70-80 or weather you have parents or relatives in that age group or whether or not you are approaching that age. This latest chapter that I posted relates to the 2016 election with a mention of the Vero Beach election in it.

So, here’s hoping you check in with Bea-isms from time to time and catch up on things from my point of view weather if be politics, both nationally and locally, as well as chapters in my book.

So, thank you for your patience and in the meantime, I am still mired in the details of dealing with the passing of my husband….Details with the VA, Social Security, probate, banking, and everything else that pops up with Steve’s name on it. It is a difficult and painful process to try to straighten out the details regarding things that were in both names.

As I said at the beginning of this article, I hope you all stay tuned into Inside Vero. When I read some of the articles I get myself worked up and realize that my hands are tied by not being in the thick of things and I also realize that the city needs a lot of advocates to fight this new regime. This article by Inside Vero is an example of what I see from afar and how little I can do to knock some sense into the elected officials. Hopefully you will re-read this article from Inside Vero that I am linking for your convenience.

    Inside Vero is quite good, Bea, but I have to admit your zinging columns always got my blood moving. It is disheartening to see how Vero Beach is fighting to keep itself afloat right now. My heart goes out to you. Losing someone you care deeply for–no way to be prepared emotionally. Really appreciate all you did. Keep in touch with us.
