12- A THE BAYTOWN SUN Wednesday, August 19, 19B7 County road work to begin CROSBY - Preliminary engineering work is being done on the proposed construction of Hare Road between Farm Road 2100 and Miller-Wilson Road, says Precinct 2 Commissioner Jim Fonteno. C.M.J. Engineering Inc. is doing the preliminary work on the road, which will be a three-lane concrete throughway with a center continuous left-turn lane. The existing Hare Road is a narrow two-lane asphalt roadway that Fonteno said must be widened and paved to accommodate the increased traffic that has resulted from the construction of a new library and post office on Hare Road. Estimated cost of construction is $350,000, according to Fonteno. He said the engineering report should be submitted to Harris County Commissioner's Court by early October.

(AP) — The teen-agers come to this unusual prairie camp to talk about drugs, sex — and themselves. Then they go back to their hometowns and help other teens stay out of trouble. They are rich and poor; from industrial cities and farm villages; wearing designer shirts or tattered jeans. Still, camp officials say they share many of the problems of adolescence. "We realize they can go out and do whatever they want and we can't stop them, so we just give them information and hope they'll make the right decisions," said volunteer director Mark Nelson of Mattoon. "Now, they can talk to other kids who have been through the same things and see that they can make it too," he said. About 750 high school students attend the three sessions of the Illinois Teen-Age Institute at Allerton Park, tucked between fields of tall corn and the Sangamon River, about three hours south of Chicago. The focus of each weeklong camp is building self-esteem and leadership skills, then showing the teens how they can deliver the message about clean living to their friends at home. Presentations by the staff cover topics ranging from drug and alcohol abuse to sexuality and divorce. Teens often meet in small groups to discuss each issue privately. They also can talk with the 50 counselors any time during the week. "That's what makes this work." said Tony Rennard, camp director. "It's not just a presentation and then we go home." Nelson says the camp, which has just completed its 13th year, has become a model for other states. This year it attracted a group from England. "We're not used to opening up — we tend to bottle everything up inside," said Seema Rajput, 17, who lives near London. "It's such a relief to share and realize you're not alone." The camp is sponsored by the Illinois Alcoholism and Drug Dependence Association. Tuition is S185 but many participants receive scholarships from groups like the Illinois Sheriffs' Association and the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Nelson said, On one sultry afternoon, the students filed into the huge, rustic dining hall for a family- style meal. An old phonograph played a scratchy version of "Wake Up Little Susie."

Two rows of trees and a spread of grass separate the boys and girls. With the week nearly over, they gathered again in small groups to discuss what they would do when they got home: a clown presentation to alert younger children about drugs: after-prom activities to discourage drinking. Brad Wiley. 16. a high school junior from Greenup. attended the camp last year, then returned this year to help newcomers. He said the most important thing he had learned was self-esteem. "You talk to kids about their problems and tell them you don't want to see them doing drugs." he said. "You say. Take care of yourself, somebodv cares.'"

Bath invented to help son ATLANTA (AP) - The Jacuzzi whirlpool bath, now a popular form of relaxation, was invented by Candido Jacuzzi to treat his son's arthritis, says the Arthritis Foundation. In 1949, a doctor recommended hydrotherapy for 15-month- old Kenneth Jacuzzi, who had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Only big hospital tubs could provide hydrotherapy at that time, so Jacuzzi designed a pump that could be used in a bathtub. The pumps were marketed in the early 1950s. Warm water is still recommended as a good way for people with arthritis to relax stiff, aching joints, says the foundation.
