On Dec. 21, State Rep. Warren Petryk (R-Eleva) visited the Ellsworth High School FACT (Fighting Against Corporate Tobacco) group. The group did a presentation on how tobacco companies have made their packaging look more like candy products. They also discussed what FACT is and what other activities FACT has done in the local school district the last 10 years. Display boards showed the changes tobacco companies have made to their packaging to look more like candy products. FACT refers to that as “Manipulicioius,” a word used as part of the activism.
