A NEW, LOCAL PLANET ... The senior services agency Avenidas this month inaugurates Senior Planet, an outpost of a New York City-based group that describes itself as a "tech-themed resource for people 60-plus who are living and aging with attitude." The group, which has a dedicated space inside agency's newly refurbished headquarters at 450 Bryant St., Palo Alto, will offer classes and resources on topics such as finance and technology tips for seniors, healthy aging, senior dating and sex, and senior travel. Classes on technology and finance begin this month, and the interests of members will determine future programs, said Senior Planet Regional Director Ryan Kawamoto. Membership is free. Tuition for a 10-week class that meets twice a week is $50. For more information, go to, or call Kawamoto at 650- 918-5570.
