In this photo taken Thursday, Jan. 19, 2012, Donna Robirds poses in her kitchen at her home in Mt. Orab, Ohio. At age 67, on a fixed income and still paying a mortgage on the manufactured home whose value has fallen in the nation’s housing market crisis, she lives on a tight budget. Already older than the nation at large, Appalachia's population will soon become grayer than ever as the baby boomer generation adds more 65 and older residents. (AP Photo/Al Behrman)
