**Public Service Announcement!** Friends & family please read & share! So tonight after dinner our oldest asked for some "juice" (Capri Sun) as a treat for eating good, I grabbed one out of the refrigerator and notice something odd about it... it seems low in content, I take a closer look at the packaging and don't notice a hole or anything. So I shake it up some, only to find an unknown substance floating around in the package. To say we are irate would be an understatement... we don't give these to our children often but will NEVER again!
WSET News ran this story: Father posts PSA after he finds mold in kids’ juice pouch.
Capri Sun's website acknowledges reports of mold in their pouches:
"It's a common, naturally occurring food mold. Although it's rare, it is possible for food mold to grow inside containers of preservative-free juice drinks if the pouch is compromised or punctured in any way on its journey from our facilities to your grocery stores."
KATU News reported: Man who helped person in distress on Aberdeen bridge - ‘I had to do something’
Aberdeen WA - A young man was sitting on the ledge of the bridge crying uncontrollably on Monday as he looked down toward the river below, Lebbert said. "Just kinda leaning like this. Like he was going to jump," Lebbert explained. Lebbert knew he needed to act.
"I decided I had to do something, so I lunged forward and grabbed him from behind. And lifted him back over the railing." Lebbert stayed with him until police arrived.
Lebbert’s actions come just before World Mental Health Day on Wednesday, a day to raise awareness about mental health issues and talk about what can be done to improve care.
Nationwide, suicide was the 10th leading cause of death across all ages in 2016, according to statistics posted on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. In Washington, statistics show the number of suicides steadily increased over a 5-year period from 2012-2016.
If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, there is help. Just call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). There are also resources available online.
WDFW Wildlife Biologist Julie Tyson declared: Very relevant - get out to a public meeting and if you can't, make sure your voice is heard by submitting comments on the proposed dam on the Chehalis!

Chehalis River Flood Damage Reduction Project Environmental Impact Statement
Read more on the Environmental Impact Statement at this link:
Victoria Smith posted: (Yesterday) at Sharon Care Center Centralia, 3 of the therapy bunnies spent 1 1/2 hours going all through the building including memory care. The bunnies were wonderful! Luna rode up in the top (of the cart), Topaz rode in the middle, and Rusty rode in the bottom. In many of the rooms Topaz was put on laps or on the bed in her cat bed; she is the star! In memory care Luna was on laps in her cat bed; the residents loved her! Rusty, of course, has lots of fans who always say he is their favorite with his soft, plush fur.

Not Strictly Toledo: Cat’s Meow SNAP! 3-Day Supply Drive At Fuller’s
Toledo’s own Twila Collins, Director of Cat’s Meow SNAP! of Lewis County marks 10 years reducing feline overpopulation by providing access to low-cost spay & neuter services.
Cat’s Meow SNAP! offers several ways you can help support this mission, including this week’s supply drive.
Collins says: Darris McDaniel and his supportive team at Fuller's are hosting a supply drive to kick off The Cat's Meow's 10th year of service to the community!
Please join in and purchase a $5 bag (close to $10 value) to help us care for our sanctuary cats and rescue kittens.
Fuller's will have brown paper bags at all of the registers Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each bag costs $5 at the register and will have items inside that we frequently use - paper towels, laundry soap, hand sanitizer, bleach, canned cat food, dry cat food, etc. Fuller's keeps the purchased bags in carts in their warehouse for us to pick up when the supply drive is over.
The bags will only cost shoppers $5 but have close to $10 worth of product inside....which means Fuller's is also making quite a large donation in the process. Be sure to let them know they are appreciated for all of their help!
We look forward to continuing to offer quality, high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter to SW Washington cats along with rehoming assistance and guidance with all of your cat questions and concerns.
Save The Date! This year's Lewis County Holiday Gala has included Cat's Meow in their fundraising event November 10, 2018.
