CITY: STATE ZIP Send check or money order with this coupon to Sentinel Tribune Box 98, Westbrook, MN 56183 Helping To Heal Clinic presents pro- gram To relieve kids' stress Tracy's downtown well- hess clinic will present an evening program designed to help parents & teachers lower the stress level in children grades K-8. "This program is long overdue", said Gene Hochhalter MA of Marshall, a long time school counselor and the lead ther- apist for the program. '~It is no wonder that our kids are on Ritalin, join gangs, and even occasionally go berserk and start shooting. Too much stress on the bodies and minds of young children can lead to serious emotion- al and physical problems". Among the topics to be cov- ered are homework, the role of play and exercise in the developing child, better ways to help kids learn, "good" and '"oad" competi- tion, the role of parents and their sometimes unreason- able expectations, and quick strategies to help the child defuse emotional stress without exploding. The "dinner program" Will be offered beginning at 6 PM Monday evening November 19th, at Shetek Bend Sports Grill on Highway 14 in Tracy. Those interested are asked to pre- register at 507- 629-3900, by calling in a confidential question for discussion. Participants may dine on a meal of their choice while enjoying the program, pre- sented by the HTH Players. The program is presented as a community service by the outreach staff of Helping To Heal, Inc a drugfree heal- ing center in downtown Tracy.

Ghouls, goblins and pirates were our visitors over the Halloween holiday. We had a very good turnout and went through cookies, hot cider (with red hots) and candy. We played it smart this year, before we allowed the kids through the door we each took some candy just in case there wasn't any left over. We did more last week then just the 'Halloween. Tuesday we started the morning off with Bone Builders and followed that up with Po-Ke-No. That afternoon we took the bus uptown and then cruised down to the park to check out the lake. Gloria was upset that she forgot her swim suit as she was looking for a swim. Wednesday we began the day with Bible Study. After dinner the kids from school came over to play games. Once again Ida won the game at her table. Thursday we recovered from the Halloween open house, and we are happy to say that Eileen did recover her voice.
