9/11 HEALING: Linda Castor: Continuing to heal 10 years after 9/11 -- A few days later –– and after extensive television coverage –– children began to draw vivid images of blood, fire, planes crashing into buildings and stick figures jumping off of them. Parents worried that these graphic representations showed irreparable psychological damage soon learned that this was a healthy way for a child to express and work through the horror of 9/11. Be Healthy Springfield (Ill.)
LORETTA LAROCHE: In darkest times, life has meaning - This past Saturday I spoke to more than 1,000 cancer survivors that included men, women and children. They were there to celebrate their lives and the courage it took to get through their collective experiences. I got the opportunity to chat with many of them after my presentation and I was in awe at the myriad of stories that showcased how resilient the human spirit can be. What powerful examples they are for me. By Loretta LaRoche, The Patriot Ledger.

SHOESTRING LIVING: Putting your garden goodies to work - I can’t put into words how much I love this time of year. A few months of work are yielding a bumper crop of veggies; the kind of which I can’t get enough. In our small 16-foot-by-4-foot garden plot, we’re popping out English cucumbers, six types of tomatoes, various hot and bell peppers and an array of herbs. Omitting these items from my grocery list for a good three months leaves me one happy gal. By Molly Logan Anderson, GHNS columnist.
JEFF VRABEL: Me vs. the automated checkout machine - In this column, Jeff battles an automated checkout machine at the grocery store. Who will win? Hint: the machine. No, not Jeff - he is not a humor-column-writing robot. We assure you he is human. By Jeff Vrabel, GHNS columnist.

READERS GUIDE: ‘A Stolen Life’ by Jaycee Dugard -- It was just a little over two years ago that Jaycee Dugard was found alive in the backyard of the man who had abducted her 18 years previously. She was 11 when she was taken. Miraculously, that child had the spirit and wisdom to survive, and she has displayed amazing resilience as she begins to forge a new life for herself and her two daughters. Susie Stooksbury/ Oak Ridger (Tenn.)
Localization tip: Include new books suggested by your local librarian.
MOVIE REVIEW: Easily forgettable ‘Circumstance’ wins Sundance Audience Award -- It’s as if everything about the film, except its good-looking visuals, is slightly out of focus. If you do see this, two things will happen: You’ll come out in a daze, and you’ll give pause to any future film that wins the Sundance Audience Award. Ed Symkus/ The Patriot Ledger (Mass.)

GREG ZYLA: The cars of my childhood - My mom always told me I was drawn to cars and trucks even before I could talk, and she's not surprised my love of cars, combined with the blessings from above, led me to a fun career in automotives. By Greg Zyla, GHNS columnist.
SILVIO CALABI: Dude, your ride is here - Nissan’s Juke - When Carlos Ghosn took over as CEO more than a decade ago, Nissan was bleeding cash and a lot of its products were forgettable, me-too copies of various Hondas and Toyotas. Since then Mr. Fix-It — as he became known — has overturned Nissan like, well, like a tsunami. But a tsunami of goodness! Now mainstream Nissans are praised for delivering value-for-dollar and fine driving dynamics, and the company also makes lust-worthy cars for motorheads (the 370Z, the GT-R, the G-series Infinitis) and even ecophiliacs. Nissan’s zero-emission Leaf is the world’s first mass-produced electric vehicle. By Silvio Calabi, GHNS columnist.
