She said participants can take a 10-minute test which will tell them if they have depression or not. She said mental health professionals will be at the seminar to tell people who to contact if they need help. Dr. David Rosen, a McMillan pro fessor of analytical psychology and a professor of psychiatry and behav ioral science and humanities in med icine, said he will give an overview of the problem and will talk about how to understand depression and what to do about it. A video about depres sion also will be shown. Jenkins said having depression is different from “having the blues.” “Depression is diagnosed if cer tain symptoms persist more than two weeks,” she said. Jenkins said getting the blues is a normal reaction to events that up set people such as making a bad grade on a test. She said symptoms of depression include a depressed mood, loss of in terest in activities that a person usu ally found pleasure in, change in weight or appetite, fatigue or loss of concentration. Jenkins said a person who is diag nosed with depression should talk to a doctor or mental health profes sional about their symptoms. She said the illness can be treated by medication and counseling. The NIMH said that more than 80 percent of those who have depres sion can be treated successfully.

The camp at Hearne was disman tled at the end of the war, and Waters began excavating the camp a year ago with the help of A&M students. Hundreds of artifacts, such as Ger man buttons, canteens and coins, have been recovered from the site. Haus said he appreciates the diffi cult times in his life because it has completed him as a person. “At the end of my life, I can say I’ve seen everything,” he said. “I’ve done everything, I have everything.” Truan to run for another term . CORPUS CHRISTI (AP) — Carlos Truan, dean of the Texas Senate, ended rumors that his tenure was near an end Wednesday night by announcing that he’ll run for re-election again next year. The Corpus Christi Democrat, in a tearful speech to about 2,000 supporters, said “there is more that we can accomplish together.” “This is all very emotional for me,” Truan said. The announcement was particularly significant be cause the 28-year legislative veteran had declined to discuss his political plans in recent months. Even De mocratic Party officials didn’t know what he would do. Truan, 62, has served 20 years in the Texas Senate, longer than any other lawmaker. He earlier served eight years in the state House. His tenure earned him the title of dean of the Senate in 1995.
