Camera is candid

Advertiser Staff and News Services

If you've developed a guilty pleasure in reading about our Hawai'i's Bachelor dating game, you'll love what we have in store for you today: Outtakes. We filmed the bachelor finalists during interviews at The Advertiser, and some of the clips were just too funny to keep to ourselves.

Go to www.honoluluadvertiser.com to watch the streaming-video outtakes. Check out the Web site again on Friday, when we'll reveal readers' three favorite bachelors. You can vote for the top bachelor from among that trio. The winner will go out on dates, trailed by a reporter and photographer who will tell their dating stories.

Learn a craft

It's Craft Month, and Ben Franklin Craft stores are offering free demonstrations every week. This week, the focus is flowers — floral arrangements, glassware crafts and faux soil and water. Next week, in recognition of spring break, there will be two keiki workshop projects each day. March 29 is National Craft Day, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Ben Franklin will hold continuous, and varied, make-it-and-take-it project sessions for keiki.

Ben Franklin store are in Kalihi, Kaimuki, Pearl City, Kailua, Lihu'e, Kamuela, Hilo and Kahului. Information: Joy at 838-7773, ext. 44.

E-mail the troops

With war threatened and U.S. troops deployed, many people want to send a greeting or encouragement. The easiest way is through an e-mail site offered by the Defense Department (www.defendamerica.mil).

Or use www.operationdearabby.net.

Because of anthrax and other concerns, paper mail not addressed to a specific person won't be delivered.

Benefit seeks bears

Organizers of the Sixth Annual Teddy Bear Round-up have a goal for this year's event: They want to collect 3,665 teddy bears to distribute to family shelters, children's hospitals and other organizations.

That's the same number as the confirmed reports of child abuse in Hawai'i last year, and Prevent Child Abuse Hawai'i and Partners for Prevention want to raise awareness in April during child-abuse prevention month.

You can drop off a new or gently used bear from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 5 at Ala Moana Center's center stage.
