PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Scott Robinson


Wow! Who would have thought back in March that we would still be living with consequences of the COVID-19 virus in September?


Your Board recently met via Zoom for the first time since December. I enjoyed seeing everyone’s face and hearing their voice. As much as we would like to reconvene face-to-face meetings, the governor’s Safe Start plan continues to restrict social gatherings to five people or ten when Spokane County advances to Phase 3.


Hence, we will try a general membership meeting via Zoom for September 14th at 11:30. For those of you who do not have a web camera, you can still join us with audio only. Therefore, mark your calendars, details are in this newsletter, under ZOOM.

Some of us fear that this method of conducting social business has become the new normal. In addition to our magazine, NARFE headquarters offers webinars for us to learn about our earned benefits and successful living in retirement. You can go to www.narfe.org for the latest offerings.

Spokane Chapter 32 has hosted free coffee and cookies at the Sprague Lake Rest Stop along Interstate 90 for several years. This event has been a major fund raiser, in addition to our annual garage sale, for our chapter. Unfortunately, both events have been cancelled this year. Fortunately, the Chapter has not spent much money.


Sandy Cook has stepped away from the Membership Chair position. We are consequently looking for her replacement. Could that person, be you? Please call me at 208-661-7695 or email me at scottsoriole@q.com if you are interested in becoming a more active member.

LEGISLATION Roger Bosky** ** Kathy Brooks on what's happening with the US Postal Service


Roger has asked that I write an article for this month’s newsletter because of what is happening within the Postal Service. I worked for the USPS for 40 years. During that time, I saw many changes, the biggest being from the US Post Office Department, a true government agency, to the USPS. Prior to 1971, the Postmaster General was a member of the President’s Cabinet. Not anymore.


There is a lot of talk about “vote by mail”. We in Washington State have been voting by mail for a number of years and it seems to work fine. In fact, several retired USPS employees, me included, serve as extra elections help. What we have seen while working at the elections Office ensures us that the security of the voting system is better than on-sight voting. But that is not the real issue.


The real issue is reducing the USPS’ ability to process mail timely

and it is impacting every person in our country.


Retired Gov’t employees receive their medications via the mail, as do most veterans. Some of these medications are shipped with ice packs to preserve the meds. If they are NOT delivered timely, the meds are useless.


Small businesses utilize the USPS to ship, and receive goods daily, again, delaying the mail impacts them.


Finally, many customers of the USPS DO NOT use the internet to receive, pay or track their monthly bills. If the checks or bills are delayed in the mail stream, customers can incur increase costs for late fees.

Please, step away from the “vote by mail” argument and fight for all the customers, individuals, and small businesses, which rely on the USPS daily. They are the real victims of reduction in service implemented by the new Postmaster General.

PROGRAM Chris Smith and Joanne Welch


Just a quick note from the co-chairs for membership programs. What a year to try to schedule programs! It was decided in our NARFE Chapter Board Meeting on August 24 that until there is a dramatic decrease in COVID-19 cases and accompanying guidance from the powers that be (Inslee and Lutz), we will be connecting with members via Zoom. One of the board members has a membership, so life is good. It’s a new world and we are curious how many of our membership will be involved.


In that regard, we are looking forward to the first Zoom meeting on September 14th to get things started. Deeper into fall, we will be having a speaker on October 12th from WSU Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine; the topic will be CoVid-19 and vaccinations. Our November speaker is scheduled to be Ann Ozuna, "the Retirement Lady”, speaking about next year’s federal health benefits, just in time for Open Season. Our programs will begin at 11:30, but obviously without a catered lunch, so the speaker will be first on the agenda after the pledge and some brief introductory remarks.


Chris and I are gathering topics and speakers for future meetings and we would like your input. What topics are you interested in for our meetings? Do you know of a good speaker who might address some aspect of our mission? Drop us a note at oredont@icloud.com or call 907-350-9866 with any ideas. Thanks to Louise Soles for all her help in sharing past contacts!

VICE PRESIDENT Arlene Patton

Washington State Federation (WSF) update: The WSF continues to hold their Board meetings electronically.


In addition to regular business the WSF formed a “Redistricting Committee”. With the decrease of WSF Chapters to 16 and more and more business being handled electronically it is time to look at redistricting. The current proposal is to reduce the number of districts from 5 to 3. The reduction from 5 to 3: One district covering the 6 Chapters in Eastern Washington. A district covering the 5 Chapters from Seattle North and a District covering the Olympic peninsula Chapters and Vancouver. Each District VP will be encouraged to work with an assistant.


The proposal will be presented to the WSF Board at their Sept. 30th Board meeting. Changes in redistricting requires the vote of the WSF membership and a change to the bylaws and standing roles.

MEMBERSHIP Sandy Cook

Wow! What a year this has been! 2020 will be one for the history books.


Membership is under fire from the effects of the COVID virus like we have never experienced. When we think about membership it has become more an issue of maintaining membership interest than an issue of recruitment, we all miss being able to gather together to socialize as well as keep current on events and issues that affect Federal retirees.


When we are again allowed to meet take the opportunity to reach out to fellow members and remind them how valuable they are to NARFE. Without our membership we have no voice to support and protect our rights and benefits.


As a retired Postal employee, I am particularly alarmed that the USPS in under fire not just by COVID but by our own President. During a time in this country when the American public should be assured of reliable universal service, he seeks to undermine the very foundation of the organization.

Retention and recruitment have never been more important to ensuring the voice of the Federal employee is heard.

Guard your health, peace of mind and have faith that things will get better.

NARFE is really more than just a great magazine. Let them know!

Promote NARFE anytime you can. The more members we have the more power to protect our benefits and retirement!


NARFE = YOUR BEST BET FOR THE FUTURE!

You can choose to lower your risk of Alzheimer’s


In a study just published in the prestigious journal Neurology, 8/2020, researchers combined data from two different populations for a total of close to 2,000 adult individuals followed for approximately 6 years. Healthy lifestyle metrics that were followed in these participants included nonsmoking, moderate to vigorous physical activity, a high-quality Mediterranean-type diet, light to moderate alcohol consumption, and engagement in late-life cognitive activities. The degree of participation in each of these activities was ultimately compared to risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease.


The results of the research were absolutely worth writing home about. Compared with individuals who scored positive on only 0 or 1 healthy lifestyle factors, those who chose to live their lives such that they had 2 or 3 of the healthy lifestyle parameters had a 37% decreased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. In those with 4 or 5 of the healthy lifestyle factors listed above, the risk of Alzheimer’s developing during the study was reduced by a dramatic 60%!


Due to meetings cancelations, contributions to Alzheimer’s research are down. Please consider donating via the U.S. mail. Send your checks to NARFE, PO.Box 4592, Spokane WA 99220. Make checks payable to NARFE #32 + designate Alzheimer’s on the memo line. Thanks for your contributions to support ongoing research of this devastating disease.

20 - 06 Advocates for Current and Former Federal Employees June 2020

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Scott Robinson


Jen Ballantyne is an Elder Law Attorney who spoke at one of our luncheon meetings. She shared the following story of Carlyn Morisset with Louise Soles, who then shared with me. Now, I want to share Carlyn’s story with the members of Spokane Chapter 32. Although Carlyn may not have attended our meetings, she was certainly one of us in spirit and purpose.

"One of the great things that came from the NARFE opportunity was meeting a little spitfire of a woman who was ahead of her time. Carlyn Morisset and I (Jen) became friends and I helped her get her legal and financial affairs in order. She passed away at age 97 on March 12 and now I am settling her estate.

Carlyn was an Army nurse during WWII. She went to UW for Bachelor's and Master's degrees in nursing and healthcare administration. Carlyn joined the Army Reserves in 1958 and retired as a Colonel in 1982. She worked for over 40 years for the VA as a nurse and in nursing administration. When she retired, Carlyn took her sick pay and traveled on an 80-day cruise around the world. She lived the last ten years of her life at Providence Emilie Court.

I (Jen) know that NARFE was particularly important to Carlyn, although I don't think she was able to attend many meetings near the end of her life. I wanted to make sure someone in the local organization knew about Carlyn's loss. Can you please pass this information along for me to the appropriate people?"

I wish to announce that Chris Smith and Joanne Welch (NPS Anchorage) will be Program Co-chairs for Spokane Chapter 32. Thank you, Louise, for all of your years of doing this job.

LEGISLATION Roger Bosky


RUSH TO JUDGEMENT

We are all a little anxious. We miss meeting with our friends, or groups, and churches. We want to get back to our usual routines. Going shopping should not be an adventure! We are being urged to get out of the house.


The rush to normalcy entails the risk of danger to Federal employees. 126 workers have died of COVID-19. The recovery process has been infected with politicization. We realize that it is important to keep our economy churning. But how do we balance the economy versus the risk of contagion? We need vigilant and cautious calibrated plans. We are getting a hodgepodge.


This brings up a second point. The Federal government has abdicated its role in bringing us back to normal. OMB guidance asks agencies to adopt a mission focused strategy in consultation with State and local governments to decide when and how to reopen. If we are truly waging a war on this pandemic, this is like asking State militias to fight World War II.


A further point is that agencies may lack personal protective equipment. Only 40% of the 30% of federal workers on the front line say that they have the resources necessary to stay safe. Is the Federal government going to help or are the State, regions, and districts going to negotiate for what they need? We also have a piecemeal approach to bringing employees back to work.


The House of Representatives has offered several measures in support of workers, including additional sick leave for workers sick or exposed to the virus and up to 10 thousand dollars in premium for hazardous duty.

CALL TO ACTION: Another positive development is the progress of a Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) bill (H.R.141) in the House, which now has 245 sponsors. If that number reaches 290, then it must go to the whole House for a vote. Our representative is not yet on board as a co-sponsor. Give her a call to join the bandwagon.

Washington State Federation (WSF) update: The WSF held a board meeting on Thursday, May 21st. During the meeting it was announced that the National FEDcom 2020 conference has been cancelled. Elections and bylaw changes will be voted on in August 2020.


The new WSFederation officers were sworn in, as follows: President, Steven Roy, Vice President, Mary Binder, Treasurer, Arlene Patton and Secretary, Linda Waller. A committee was formed to make recommendations regarding DVPs.

As we get out and about, we will have opportunities to interact with current and retired Federal employees. As a refresher, below are some tips for engaging in recruitment.


Recruitment happens in many locations. But what do you say?


The last thing you want to do is stumble after you have gotten someone's interest. That is why it is good to practice ahead of time, so that you can articulate NARFE as well as motivate your listener to want more information. The recent NARFE Recruitment and Retention magazine illustrates and elevator script that you can use or improve upon to make it your own.


1st Floor: Have you heard of NARFE . Its biggest goal is to protect our federal employee retirement and health benefits.

2nd Floor: It is not only for retirees. It is never too early to join and protect your future.

3rd Floor. About 1/3 of our members are active Federal employees. They see that their future is important and want it protected.

4th Floor. It is never too early to learn. Why fear retirement when you have an association like NARFE that will walk you through it and inform you of the unknowns?

5th Floor. Would you rather know what your retirement involves before you retire? Or would you rather wait for the surprise.


What else can I tell you? Oh yes, continue to be safe.

ALZHEIMER’S Pat Hegerberg


The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) recently awarded $3.5 million to researchers developing early detection tests for Alzheimer’s. A portion of that award went to French company Amoneta Diagnostics for a promising blood test their researchers have been developing that could detect mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and early Alzheimer’s disease.


Unlike other Alzheimer’s detection tests like a PET scan or lumbar puncture that look for a buildup of beta-amyloid plaques or tau, toxic proteins often found in Alzheimer’s patient’s brains, this test looks at ribonucleic acids (RNA) in the blood.


Preclinical studies have shown that the test is 100 percent accurate in detecting Alzheimer’s disease.

Olivier Danos, vice president of the executive board and scientific advisor of FIRALIS SA, the mother company of Amoneta Dianostics, speaking about the availability of tests for clinical use says that “We have prototypes we’ve been testing in the clinic on patient samples already, but the real product will take a couple of years to become available to the public."

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Scott Robinson

Here we are still living with the consequences of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Governor Inslee may extend his Stay Home, Stay Healthy order after May 4. Virginia’s Governor also extended his stay-home order, which consequently means NARFE headquarters’ building will remain closed through June 10. However, FEDcon20 in Scottsdale, AZ is still scheduled to occur, and early registration was extended until May 1. Our chapter will not meet until Darcy’s will once again offer in-house dining. Therefore, we won’t see each other until after our normal summer break during July and August. Please stay tuned for details regarding our garage sale in July and rest-stop fundraiser in October. Therefore, I encourage everyone to read this newsletter and our chapter’s webpage for the latest, UpToDate information. Because most all of us are in the high-risk age group, we all should practice staying home, staying a safe distance, and frequently washing our hands to live a longer, healthy life. I hope to see all of you the next time we meet. Anyone with questions can either call (208-661-7695) or email me at scottsoriole@q.com.

The 2020 election cycle for NARFE officers kicked off with candidate statements in the March issue of NARFE Magazine. Information on bylaws amendments and resolutions will follow in the June/July 2020 issue of NARFE Magazine, and the ballot will be included in the August 2020 issue. Members can review the candidate statements and get more information about the 2020 NARFE election timeline on the web at www.narfe.org/2020balloting.

LEGISLATION Roger Bosky

Public Service

As we prepare to celebrate National Public Service Recognition week, my heart and esteem go out to those public servants who spoke truth to power as they carried out their constitutional duties. Their efforts were rewarded with humiliation and loss of jobs. Now, once again, public servants are being asked to serve on the front lines as the COVID-19 virus rages across the country. As I write this, I learned that a Federal vaccine doctor believes that he was ousted from his job for questioning the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine.


TSA screeners, VA nurses and doctors, postal workers, border patrol agents, security guards, and many others come in contact with the public in carrying out their duties and may be exposed to the virus. And, many workers use locker rooms and showers where person-to-person contact requirements cannot be followed. Workers have died.


The Government response to worker concerns has been mixed. The VA, for example, has required workers to continue working after exposure to the virus and until they have symptoms. Or else they are AWOL. The VA chief has acknowledged that there is a shortage of protective equipment for its hospital workers. On the other hand, strong efforts have been made to allow teleworking, where possible. There has also been discussion of bonuses for front-line workers and additional sick leave.


Now, there is strong pressure to return to normal and bring all employees back to work. Let us hope that this can be done safely. My concern is that in view of the administration’s abdication of leadership to the States, how will this situation work for national programs?

NOTICE: Washington State Federation has a new website. The address is – www.narfewa.org.

PROGRAM Louise Soles

Who would have ever thought the world could get so upside down! Seems I have a tendency to want to be reclusive and it takes some effort talking myself into getting out and about and being social. Now I find myself lamenting the loneliness caused by "social distancing" and self-isolation. Sheesh. I do miss all my friends, but we all know that "This too shall pass". God willing, it be over soon.


Editor’s Note – Louise is stepping down as our Program Chair after many years of providing outstanding speakers for our Chapter Meetings. We want to wish Louise success in her future endeavors and hope to see her at our meetings, when they begin again.

President Scott Robinson is looking for a replacement for Louise, so if you are interested, or know someone, please contact Scott.

MEMBERSHIP Sandy Cook

What started out with 14 people in 1921 grew to 491,000 in the mid-eighties. Since then it has dwindled somewhat, but the mission is still relevant.


Here is a copy of NARFE's mission statement:


NARFE Mission Statement:

• To support legislation beneficial to current and potential federal annuitants and to oppose legislation contrary to their interests.

• To promote the general welfare of current and potential federal annuitants by advising them with respect to their rights under retirement laws and regulations.

• To cooperate with other organizations and associations in furtherance of these general objectives.

This mission is critical and timely as Congress and the administration consider unprecedented cuts to federal pay and benefits. Each new member strengthens the message to Congress and makes our national outreach stronger. It also shows NARFES resolve in maintaining a strong and effective federal workforce.


When you are talking to a possible member, let them know how long we have been in existence and give them an example of the impact NARFE has made for them, such as prevented impact to our Health Benefits and prevented Retirement, Pay and Benefit Cuts. I think they might be interested in preserving their retirement benefits, don’t you?

With everything going on in the world, we have made the decision to postpone the Pre-Retirement Seminar until this Fall. If you are aware of anyone interested in attending, please let me know.


I heard from a friend that the Postal letter carriers were unable to purchase and sanitizer wipes. These wipes are needed to sanitize the vehicles before they start their day. Well, I came up with an idea to make these wipes. With the help of Sue Harvey, Mary Rohner, and Jodi Brugh, we made 40 containers of sanitizer wipes and distributed them to the carrier stations within the Spokane area. We also want to thank all our friends and family for their donations of plastic containers.


We hear thank you to all the medical, fire, police, etc. workers. However, we need to remember all those workers ensuring we receive our mail, packages, etc. They too are out daily helping to ensure there is some normalcy to our days.


THANK YOU TO ALL WORKERS, GOVERNMENT AND CIVILIAN, ENSURING WE HAVE NORMALCY IN OUR LVES, BY PROVIDING SERVICES.

ALZHEIMER’S Pat Hegerberg

Covid-19 and the Brain

THE FIRST REPORTS of Covid-19 affecting the central nervous system appeared on the preprint server medRxiv in late February, posted by neurologists in Wuhan, China, where the outbreak started. Analyzing health records from 214 patients admitted to the Union Hospital of Huazhong University of Science and Technology, the team found that 36.4 percent of those patients showed signs of nervous-system-related issues.

The most common symptoms they observed were muscle pain, headaches, dizziness, or confusion—which tend to manifest during any viral infection, especially in older people. In at least some of the patients, especially the ones with headaches, the neurological symptoms started days before a cough and fever set in.

The upshot? Doctors need to consider altered brain function as cause to test for SARS-CoV-2, in order to “avoid delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis and prevention of transmission,” the authors wrote in a peer-reviewed version of the study published Friday in the journal JAMA Neurology. Failure to recognize these early warning signs could result in patients being discharged and unknowingly exposing others to the virus, they wrote.
