'Heroin Kills' Videos
The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office is proud to offer its new “Heroin Kills” anti-opiate public service announcement videos for broadcast by regional TV stations and local access cable channels as well as Bucks County municipalities and school districts to use for free. The videos are an extension of the DA’s anti-heroin initiative, which seeks to educate the public about the use and abuse of heroin and its tragic consequences, as well as to cut the supply of drugs and identify and prosecute dealers through anonymous tip lines and other means.
Central to both videos, one approximately a minute long, one approximately ten minutes long, is the courageous and wrenching account of “Maggie,” a suburban mother whose daughter, a former high school honor student, has fallen victim to heroin addiction. Eloquently and frankly, “Maggie” tells of the toll taken by the drug on her daughter, including a half-dozen failed attempts to kick the habit, and the daughter’s single-minded plundering of her parents’ possessions and finances in order to pay for the heroin she craves.

PLAYWICKI FARMS - 110 ACRES OF OUTDOOR PLEASURE
THE LABYRINTH AT PLAYWICKI
The Labyrinth was inspired by an ancient symbol for harmony and unity, the Vesica Pisces. Two symmetrical circles overlap forming an eye-shaped center enclosing the Common Ground shared by the
circles. Following the events of 9-11, designer Connie Fenty created this pattern to be walked for reflection and meditation.
Evidence of existing Labyrinth patterns date as far back as 1300 B.C. Although its history is mysterious, it is believed that the Labyrinth was used by many ancient cultures including: Greek, Peruvian, Native American and European. This pattern was chosen to represent a part of Playwicki Farm History when the Native Americans and the European settlers lived together in harmony.
The Labyrinth was completed in the spring of 2007. It was built largely by community volunteers with assistance from the Lower Southampton Public Works Department. Local businesses who contributed materials were: Fizzano Brothers Concrete Products, Castle Garden Center, Feeney's and The Brickman Group Ltd., with funding provided by the Playwicki Farm Foundation.
The Labyrinth is dedicated in memory of Sue McKeon, former Lower Southampton Township Manager, Supervisor and President of the Playwicki Farm Foundation, whose love of Playwicki Farm helped preserve the property for the community's enjoyment and made this Labyrinth possible.
