@dg - You can opt out of circulars by calling the Trib, although it's more difficult if you live in an apartment where they will just claim others have not opted out. See below:
"If a resident wishes to stop delivery, please call 1-800-TRIBUNE or email email@example.com."

Beekeeping Camp for Kids (ages 9-12) in Downers Grove
There are a lot of kids in the area who are interested in beekeeping. This nature camp promises to be fascinating and fun!
Lyman Woods Junior BeekeepersSmoke out a real adventure! Suit up and join our beekeeper to investigate firsthand the inner workings of a beehive. Learn all about hives and colonies while you build a hive and inspect real frames of bees. Build a solar wax melter and learn how to make beeswax candles, and even harvest honey from the hives! Must be comfortable being close to bees.
