SPOTLIGHT PHOTO: NICOLE THILL - From left to right, Andrew Pletsch, 13, Jude Swift, 6, and Quinn Swift, 9, participate in the 'Rey's Lightsaber Challenge,' where participants were asked to keep a balloon afloat using lightsabers made of green foam pool toys for at least 15 seconds. All three boys took the challenge seriously and pushed themselves to keep their balloons in the air for 30 seconds. The St. Helens Library held a "Jedi Training" event Monday, Aug. 31, where children could hone their Padawan skills by participating in building projects, paper crafts, physical exercises and other activities themed around the Lucasfilm movie series, "Star Wars."
