Bereavmnent activities using art, crafts and music are threaded into fln camp activi- ties including s' imming, tub- ing, hiking, pho :ography and a campside bonf re. A bereave- ment counselor will conduct individualized :ounseling and support groups "When ayom g child experi- ences a signific nt death, such as a parent or s! bling, the loss can have a detri nental effect," said LisaAdams spokesperson for CTMC Hospice Care.. We believe emotional comfort is important for acceptance after a loss, just as encouragement from their loved ones. At Camp HeartSong, our goal is to walk with these children along the road to recovery." Camp HeartSong is funded through the CTMC Seasons of Sharing annual campaign and through community dona- tions. There is no cost for the children to attend and meals and Snacks are provided, how- ever, space is limited. Please visit to watch a short video on this special camp.

Actually, avoid it at all costs. There are plenty of other, less toxic alterna- fives. Seek them out and do business with companies that follow suit. And last but not least is the dreaded Numero Seven, "Mixed Plastics"--- all the other stuff that ends up in our landfills as trash. Recyclers can't use it and don't want it. So don't buy it. Looking in the fridge at the Free Press, most of our stuff (juice and yogurt and salad dressing and squirt mustard) is coded one and five. Oddly, our Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and Welch's Grape Jelly are in squeeze bottles marked with sevens. Dang. Sweet tooth staples are housed in materials doomed for the eternal scrap heap. Is there no justice? I guess we've all got to become more aware of what we are buying and the consequences of the packaging being foisted on us. Look for those ones and twos and buy products with the least amount of packaging'possible. It's an uphill battle but we've got to start somewhere. / Congratulations Stuart Dean and in Mathel OBITUARIES HARRIS Willie C. Harris, Sr., 68, of Kyle passed away Thurs- day, May 6, 2010.
