Perfect time to take the Mindfulness Walk at Stark Parks

Sometimes, you just need to get outside and take a breath of fresh air. The Mindfulness Walk at Petros Lake Park encourages parkgoers to do just that. The 1-mile trail, which opened last year, encourages visitors to practice mindfulness—the “nonjudgmental awareness that comes from paying purposeful attention to the present moment,” according to Stark County Mental Health & Addiction Recovery.

Elizabeth Vargas to lead off author series

It isn’t weak to ask for help. That’s the message television journalist Elizabeth Vargas plans to deliver when she speaks about her struggle against alcoholism and anxiety to an audience gathered the evening of September 12 at Canton Palace Theatre. Her 6:30 p.m. talk kicks off the Stark County District Library’s “Speaking of Books” series of lectures, which also will include a talk at Palace Theatre on October 30 by David Sheff, the author of “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction.”
