Feiser Funeral Home member of Lofty Oaks - BETHLEHEM, NH -- Earth Day comes but once a year for most of us, but for the Feiser Funeral Homes, Inc., of New Oxford and East Berlin, it is a year round event. In an effort to bring comfort to the families they serve and to revitalize the earth, the Feiser Funeral Homes Inc., have a young tree planted on public lands in Pennsylvania as a living memorial for those they have served. The memorial trees are planted on sites where professional foresters determine they are most needed, and they serve more than one purpose. They contribute to the health and preservation of Pennsylvania forests, they cleanse the air, and they provide habitat for animals In many cases, youth groups plant the trees, so they serve as a valuable learning tool for the future. Demonstrating a strong com- mitment to the community and concern for the environment, the Feiser Funeral Homes, Inc., are members of the Lofty Oaks Organization, a nationwide organization dedicated to renewing forests in all 50 states since 1981. "There's something profoundly meaningful about a living memorial that touches peoples' hearts."' said one funeral director. "Planting a tree is one of the small but significant ways we try to help people through a difficult time."' This represents a new level of responsibility that is being assumed by Lofty Oaks member funeral homes. They are going beyond their doors and reaching out in new, creative ways, expanding their role to fit the needs of the times. They are aware that this is a positive contribution to their community as well as the environment and are eager to participate to promote a better life. Students to take part in Envirothon Friday On Friday, the McSherrystown Fish and Game Club will host approximately 150 Adams County high school students for the annual Adams County Envirothon. The Envirothon. sponsored fay the Adams County Conservation District, is a contest designed to test the student's knowledge of our environment. In teams of four or five, students will tackle questions on environmental topics including soils, wildlife, aquatics, forestry and a current issue. This year's current issue is watershed management. Questions will range from identifying bird calls to evaluating soil types, to answering questions about forest management. "It's a great way for the students to learn more about the environment and have fun at the same time," said Larry Martick, manager for the Conservation District. "The students really enjoy getting out of school for the day, but they take the competition very seriously. Many of the teams have been studying their materials since the %vinter and they would love to win the county's Envirothon and then compete in and win the Pennsylvania Envirothon and hopefully even the National Envirothon,TM Martick explained. The day-long event receives plenty of support from several natural resource agencies. Assistance is provided by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, Pennsylvania Game Commission, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR). Bureau of Forestry, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. Statewide, 60 counties hold Envirothon competitions. The county winners will compete in the state Envirothon which will be held Wednesdav, Mav 27 and Thursday, May 28 at the Bald Eagle State Park in Centre County.

Community groups come to aid of abused children The Adams County District Attorney's Office, Adams County Children and Youth Services and the Adams County VictimAVitness Program, in cooperation with The Gettysburg Hospital, have come together to aid in the well-being of sexually abused children through the purchase of a video colposcope. A video colposcope provides the most updated method for the medical evaluation of children and adults who are victims of sexual abuse and aids in the prosecution of child sexual abusers. The equipment was purchased through a donation of Slo,000 from the Emma G. Musselman Foundation. The colposcope is housed and maintained by the hospital in a private examination room. The examination process gives the health-care provider an opportunity to confront a child's anxieties, explain more about his or her body, and possibly lessen the fear. The equipment will also he available to area physicians for the medical treatment of their patients. The purchase and use of the colposcope is the cornerstone of Dr. Linda Neiswender, left, and Jane Oyler, director of surgical services at The Gettysburg Hospital, are shown with the newly purchased video colposcope which will be used to aid victims of sexual abuse and to assist in the prosecution of child sexual abusers. an effort to address the issues concerning child sexual abuse in Adams County.
