Business in brief
Comfort Zone Camp, a nonprofit bereavement organization for children suffering the loss of a parent or sibling, will relocate its headquarters effective July 2. The new location is 7201 Glen Forest Dr., Suite 301, in Glen Forest Office Park. Comfort Zone’s move was prompted by the current landlord’s offer of a generous incentive to terminate the lease one year early in order for the landlord to expand his medical practice. Comfort Zone found space at a competitive rate and will achieve significant savings with the upcoming move. All phone and fax numbers will remain the same.

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ worthy of its franchise
Do Muppets sleep? It’s hard to say.
They don’t really eat (or breathe, as far as anyone can tell). And only occasionally do they have visible, functioning legs.
As far as anyone knows, sleeping might be off the table. And that makes it very hard to accuse the Muppets of sleepwalking through their latest feature, Muppets Most Wanted – even if that’s exactly what’s going on.
Jim Henson’s beloved creations were back in a big way after 2011’s The Muppets, with fame and fortune and even an Oscar, a first for the group (“Rainbow Connection” was nominated, yet somehow failed to collect at the ’79 ceremony). > Read more.
