THE SALINA JOURNAL LIFE SUNDAY, APRIL 15, 2001 Grandmas / More needed FROM PAGE D1 vSBut Most said most of what gie grandparents do comes nat- ^ "Life has taught them so much," she said. "That's where the intergenerational thing really comes in. They know things you can't learn in a university or from in-service training." Kids and grandmas grow . Most said the children blossom under the attention showered on them by the grandmothers. And she's seen the grandmas blossom, too. "You can see them change," Most said. "They have a purpose now. They're over 60, and they're coming into their own. "You see such a change in their frame of mind. It breaks the mold of what society sees as aging. It shows they have so much to offer still." Lantz, or Grandma Tillie as she's called by the students, retired from her job as a licensed practical nurse and was spending most of her time at home, putting together jigsaw puzzles, when her sister told her "You can see them change. They have a purpose now. They're over 60, and they're coming into their own. You see such a change in their frame of mind." DeAnn Most Kansas Children's Service League Foster Grandparent Program coordinator about the program. "It's been good for me," she said. "It's gotten me out of the house. "I live in a trailer. It doesn't take that long to straighten your trailer up." Grandma Iva had monitored students on a school bus before suffering a heart attack in 1995 and undergoing bypass surgery She has seen her health improve since she started working with students. "This has really helped my legs," she said. "You walk the halls a lot. I don't just go out and walk, but this keeps me going. When I get home, I'm kind of tired." But no matter how tired she and Grandma Tillie are, BABIES Haley Madison Tiernan A daughter, Haley Madison, was born March 28, 2001, to Steve and Stephanie Tiernan of Tipton.

Grandma Iva was at Appletree Restaurant in Salina one evening when two of her students rushed to her and gave her hugs. Their parents hung back, admonishing the children not to bother the elderly lady "I introduced myself and told them I didn't mind," Grandma Iva said. "The children are just precious," Grandma Tillie said. More slots are open The only problem is there aren't enough foster grandparents to go around. Most's foster grandparent program, created about two years ago, is one of seven in the state. It's funded through the same source as the Retired Senior Volunteer Program and works closely with that program in recruiting foster grandparents. "They've opened a lot of doors for us," Most said. The school district was ecstatic to have the grandmothers, McNeal said, and quickly put them to work. "I put up a sheet at the beginning of the year, with the times they would be available and had teachers sign up," McNeal said. "It wasn't hard to fill up the slots. We could have used more." The federal program grant would fund about 50 foster grandparents ages 60 or older, but Most said only about two dozen are working in Salina, Andover, Hutchinson, Junction City and Pratt. "There's such a need for this everywhere," Most said. "It's a win-win program, bringing the generations together." • Reporter Sharon Montague can be reached at 823-6464, Ext. 129, or by e-mail at sjsmontague ©saljournalxom.
