A 105-year-old Sun City woman has been honored as the Arizona winner of the Home Instead Senior Care network’s Salute to Senior Service award.

Ruthie Culver is being recognized for her community service, including her work at Banner Boswell Medical Center. Culver has been volunteering at the hospital since the age of 96, helping to fill in the gaps when necessary and fold thousands of towels used in patient care.

The Salute to Senior Service program was launched this year by the Home Instead Senior Care network to honor seniors’ commitments to their causes and communities. As one of 50 state winners, Culver earned a spot in the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame on the SalutetoSeniorService.com website.

“Ruthie is a valued member of the community and a senior hero to many,” said Jeff Huber, president and chief operating officer of Home Instead, Inc. “She has shown that volunteer opportunities for older adults should not diminish because of age. Seniors such as Ruthie are making important contributions to their communities through charities, nonprofit organizations and faith communities.”

As a state winner, Culver was considered for the national Salute to Senior Service award. The national award was presented to Clark Paradise of Lakewood, N.J., who was honored for his work with Your Grandmother’s Cupboard, a nonprofit organization he and his wife founded to meet the needs of the thousands of homeless families throughout New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania.

A $5,000 gift will be donated by Home Instead, Inc., franchiser of the Home Instead Senior Care network, to the Paradise’s nonprofit charity of choice.

Should they stay or should they go?

Arizona lawmakers are advancing a bill allowing business owners to ask people to leave if they have service animals that are out of control or are not housebroken. The proposal originally would have made it a Class 2 misdemeanor for a second violation of lying about having a service animal. Should lying about having a service animal be a crime in Arizona?
