The penultimate week of 2010 was much ado about Santa and suicide. We featured the former with video and photos from SantaCon: SantaCon 2010: The Video and The Photos. We also brought you footage of a Christmas flash mob at the Farmers Market.
The week started with commentary about responsible reporting about suicides and ended with the American Federation for Suicide Prevention’s response.
We published a guest column from Sara Rosinsky on A Celebration of Peace at the Lakeland Montessori Middle School.
This week in other local media:
