Have you heard? 85 is the new 65. If you’ve met Dr. Ed Sisson, PhD (psychology) you’ll know what I mean. He reminds me of Phil Donahue: intelligent, handsome, kind, respected and not afraid to tell how it is.

He runs with the big dogs … well, sort of. He adopts big dogs. He’s currently in love with a 110-pound Rottweiler he adopted from a shelter. Prior to the Rott, he had two dobermans: Frick and Frack.

He teared up a few times talking about the love he has for his wife of 66 years; of his PTSD from serving in the Korean and Vietnam wars, and of wartime strife that cost others their lives.

Rene Quintana is the Del Norte County recipient of the David A. Isom Excellence in Service Award from the Redwood Coast Regional Center. Quintana said he received the award at a recent manager’s meeting at his work.

“I was really shocked. I was so focused on work and scheduling and then came the award and so I was very honored,” Quintana said. “I still am. I’m still on cloud nine. It’s amazing how a little mention or something (from) your peers really means a lot.”
