Elders and their families have options for the next phase of life
By Laura Livingston Snyder

Many adults have become the ultimate caregivers. They are members of what is known as the “sandwich generation,” raising young children, financially backing grown children, and providing care for their own parents, who are living longer and need assistance.



On Saturday, July 29, come to downtown Syracuse to participate in—or just stroll through—the Syracuse New Times and Family Times annual Street Painting contest. Artists of all ages will be claiming sidewalk squares and creating chalk art from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. (The rain date is July 30.) The contest occurs on Montgomery Street near City Hall. Artists looking for the best effects should bring their own chalk, though some chalk will be provided. Registration costs $10 for those age 17 and younger, $20 for 18 and older. Add $5 for registering after July 21. Preregister at For more details about Street Painting:
