I am 61 and had planned on retiring next year but now I am wondering if that will be feasible with the fall in the stock market. Terry, La Cañada ? You are one of millions of baby boomers who plan to delay, or perhaps cancel, their retirements because of the recession and the stock market?s dive to half its value of just 18 months ago. About 76 million American babies born between 1946 and 1960 were supposed to be starting to retire now. But 57% of Americans age 45 and older expect to delay retirement, according to a recent AARP study.

Letters to the Editor Snail Could Do Inverness Job Faster I read with dismay the La Cañada department head's report on the Inverness Road repairs in the last issue of the Sun. This road will have been washed out two years ago in January. The report states that the work is 65 percent complete. I attended a City Council meeting two months ago and was told at that time that the road was 65 percent complete. One wonders what has been going on at the site in the last 60 days?
