Vol. 21 No. 2
Death in the Family
Accent on living, started by Raymond Cheever
in 1956, was one of the oldest magazines for the community of people living with
mobility-related disabilities. The Information Center has been recommending this
publication for many years. It is with regret that we note that Accent
has published its last edition this summer.
Mr. Cheever's wife and daughter are no longer able to keep
this wonderful little magazine going. We thank them for all the effort they have
given over the years. Subscribers will, hereafter, receive Paraplegia
News, an even older publication, in place of Accent.
Betty Garee has been editor of Accent for the past 25 years. She is starting a new quarterly
magazine called SpeciaLiving that will
have the same format and cover similar subjects as Accent has over the years. She has said, "With a prayer and
your support, I am confident SpeciaLiving
can be successful and serve your needs for information about special products,
entertainment and inspiration that you have come to expect from a magazine for
Accent readers will not automatically receive this new publication. To see what Ms. Garee is offering in her new magazine, subscribe, or request a sample issue of SpeciaLiving, by writing to: SpeciaLiving, P.O. Box 1000, Bloomington, IL 61702; or e-mail SpeciaLiving@aol.com.
