Ten “To Do’s” For Homeowners (NAPS)—It’s time to check around the house to make sure things are operating efficiently. Here are 10 often-overlooked tasks to add to your home-cleaning list: 1. Check AC: Have your air-conditioning system tuned up to lower energy bills and ensure the system is running at its manufacturer-rated efficiency. 2. Check Water Heater: If your water heater is more than five years old, check it for signs of leakage or rusting at the bottom. 3. Fertilize Lawn: Apply a high-nitrogen fertilizer once in the spring and again in the fall. 4. Check Refrigerator: Clean the refrigerator’s condenser coil with a long-handled bottle brush and a vacuum cleaner with an attachment hose to remove dust and lint that could shut down the unit by causing it to overheat. 5. Clean Gutters: Clean the gutters so the

rainwater flows easily off the roof. Clearing leaves prevents water from pooling in areas and attracting mosquitoes. 6. Organize Closets: Wash or dry-clean clothes before storing them in a zippered sweater or blanket bag or in a plastic bin. 7. Clean Carpets: Vacuum carpets and shampoo with a spray foam or powder, or rent a steamer from the hardware store for a deeper clean. 8. Wash Exterior Windows: Pick a cloudy day to wash exterior windows. Too much sun dries the cleaning solution too quickly and creates streaks. 9. File Important Documents: Store warranties, operating manuals and other documents in hanging files, folders or binders for easy access. 10. Check Batteries: The average home is filled with battery-operated devices—from flashlights to smoke detectors to cordless

phones. Don’t forget to test those devices and replace the batteries with fresh ones. Test smoke alarms once per month and change the batteries at least twice per year. Ensure there is at least one working smoke alarm on every level of your home, particularly in or near sleeping areas. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, about 3,000 people in the U.S. lose their lives in residential fires every year. It’s time to replace the batteries if the detector emits a warning sound, such as chirping or beeping. Interstate Batteries makes 16,000 different kinds of batteries—powering automobiles, laptops and everything in between. Interstate All Battery Centers will have, find or build the right battery for just about any gadget around your home. For more information, visit www.interstatebatteries.com.

Investing In Your Home’s Exterior Can Save You Money Later efficient Simonton vinyl windows and a fiberglass entryway system from Therma-Tru have long-term warranties, and can help you enhance the long-term value and aesthetic appeal of your home while saving on energy bills. A recent report on return-on-investment and home repair, the “Remodeling 2011–12 Cost versus Value Report” (www.costvsvalue.com), shows that replacing older, inefficient windows with upscale vinyl windows is one of the ten most popular projects with payback for homeowners, and has a higher projected return-on-investment than several other popular home upgrade projects, including bathroom remodels or additions, major kitchen remodels or the addition of a master suite.

Owning a home is a 365-day-a-year commitment -- a mortgage to pay, a yard to maintain and bills to juggle. But experts say that evaluating key exterior elements of your home at least once annually can prevent some bills from skyrocketing. “The key to saving money and keeping a home comfortably livable is to be proactive in evaluating and fixing its major components,” says Mark Clement, host of MyFixItUpLife home improvement radio show and a professional contractor for 20 years. “Don’t wait to replace older, inefficient windows until your energy bills soar out of control. Investing in newer, more energy efficient and low maintenance exterior products can have a major impact on the livability and return on investment of a home and deliver terrific peace of mind.” If your roof is damaged by severe weather

or is old and leaking, investing in a new roof made of durable polymer slate or shake tiles will pay off for decades to come. For example DaVinci Roofscapes makes shingles that have a 50-year warranty, resist impact, fire and all kinds of insects. For exterior trim pieces, swap out wood trim that is susceptible to rotting and insect infestation with urethane and PVC trim products. “Synthetic millwork, like pieces that are available from Fypon, resist moisture, humidity, insects and termites, swelling and rot,” Clement advises. “Once you install these lowmaintenance trim pieces around doors, windows, soffits and other exterior areas, you’re golden.” For functional areas of the home, like windows and doors, use solidly-constructed, man-made products. For example, energy-

(StatePoint)

For more home improvement ideas that offer great returns on investment, visit Clement’s website at www.myfixituplife.com. “Almost no building product lasts forever,” he warns. “Homeowners should continually evaluate the exterior elements on their home, research replacement options, and invest in products that are solidly constructed by a quality manufacturer that offers a strong warranty.”

Evaluating key exterior elements of your home at least once annually can prevent some bills from skyrocketing.

is Ready for Your

FALL PROJECTS

Consider a programmable thermostat with a mobile app. (NAPS)—Cool news for anyone who has ever wanted to remotely heat up the house at night on the way home after a long day at work or cool it down on the way home from a long vacation: You may soon be able to do just that. Thanks to a new technology breakthrough, you can now go green with a new thermostat and mobile app that lets you adjust your thermostat settings even when you’re not home. And it’s just as easy as when you’re at home because the mobile app looks just like your thermostat screen. What’s more, you also can check your home energy use from your mobile device and adjust the programming from virtually anywhere there is Internet or cellular access. You can even text family members at home by sending messages right to the thermostat screen. Your thermostat also can act like a digital picture frame. You can easily upload photos of your kids, pets or vacations. You can run a single photo as a screen saver or up to 100 photos as a slide show. Your thermostat will even tell you when your system needs service. And when you are home, but it’s not convenient to get up to adjust the thermostat settings, you can do it from your

smartphone or tablet. Beyond adjusting your thermostat remotely for energy savings, here are more tips for conserving energy costs when you’re on the go. • As the days get cooler, closing your curtains or blinds at dusk will help stop heat from escaping through windows. When the days get warmer, keeping the curtains or blinds closed in the morning will help keep out hot daytime sun. • The most common household appliances - phone chargers, televisions, computer monitors and DVD players—use valuable energy even when turned off. Unplug them when you’re not home to reduce your energy use and your monthly bill. • Clean or replace filters on furnaces and air conditioners once a month or as recommended. • Consider a programmable thermostat

with a mobile app so you can remotely control energy consumption from anywhere by using your smartphone or tablet. For more tips and information about this new ColorTouch connected thermostat, visit Venstar at www.venstar.com.

Cleaning And Organizing Year Round (NAPS)—Once a year, many people scour their homes—deep cleaning and getting rid of items they haven’t used or worn in years. However, people who clean and stay organized throughout the year are more likely to be happy, healthy and financially comfortable. “I see clients every day who are extremely stressed due to the level of disorganization in their life,” said Lisa Zaslow, professional organizer and owner of Gotham Organizers. “If you keep your home organized, with a minimal level of clutter, you’ll see a number of benefits above and beyond being able to see your floor.” What are the other areas of your life that benefit from being organized? Emotional—A high level of disorganization can lead to excessive stress. Zaslow helped one client reorganize her home, and afterward the client “woke up happy, instead of stressed like before.” Health—An organized home is cleaner, keeping germ and bacteria levels to a minimum. Financial—“You’d be surprised how many people have money in old purses when I come to help them get organized,” said Zaslow. Additionally, being organized means you’ll be on top of paperwork—one missed credit card payment can rack up late fees, increase your interest rate and affect your credit score. Knowing that there are all these additional benefits, how can you get started? According to Zaslow, it doesn’t matter where you start, so begin with the easiest or most annoying task. • Cull through closets and storage to find items that you’re no longer using and get rid of them, like gadgets, last season’s clothes or collectibles. If they are still in great condition, bring them to an eBay Trading Assistant. Trading Assistants are experienced eBay sellers around the country who

will sell your items on eBay for a commission. They do all the work for you—making you money while you clear out clutter. • Box up excessive paperwork or magazines and label them “Items to sort” as the first step. It will make you feel better to know the process has begun. • Organize one room at a time to make the task less overwhelming. Making yourself a schedule of which room comes next helps show your progress. Finally, “Think of it as a treasure hunt. You’ll find something that you’ve been missing and something you didn’t even know you had,” said Zaslow. For more information, go to http://ebaytradingassistant.com/money.

Keeping your home organized can help lower your stress levels.

How To Tell When Your Home Needs A New Roof

Leaks in the attic after a wind-driven rain or ice buildup may be signs that your home needs a new roof. remember to always use proper safety equipment to prevent falls or injury. Learn to Read the Signs Look carefully for the following signs your roof may be in need of repair or replacement: • Leaks in the attic after a wind-driven rain or ice buildup; • Blistering and peeling of interior and/or exterior paint; • Stains, mold or mildew on interior ceilings and walls; • Exterior decay of sheathing and/or siding.

(NAPS)—Investing a little time and effort in monitoring the condition of your roof can pay big dividends when it comes to your home and your family’s well-being. Industry professionals believe it’s a good idea to inspect your roof regularly, particularly if you live in areas of the country that experience extreme weather. You can inspect your roof yourself, either by climbing on your roof or by using binoculars from the ground. Another sound option is to have a professional do it for you. If you do go up on the roof yourself,

Before Hurry w o The Sn Falls!

When it comes to examining the roof itself, start by looking at the shingles for any that are missing, cracked, curled, torn or warped. Also, look for any open seams or joints that could lead to leaking. Popped or rusted nails, or stains around nails, are also signs that your roof is in need of repair or replacement. A Roof Is More Than Shingles Many homeowners are surprised to learn that a roof is more than just the shingles. A roof is actually a system that, in addition to the shingles, includes other components, such as leak barriers and ventilation components. While each element has a particular job to do, they are also designed to work together to cover a house. Designed to Offer Peace of Mind There is good news for homeowners who want to cover their financial investment as well as their house. One manufacturer of roofing products has a program that offers what it calls “limited lifetime coverage” when a homeowner installs any of its Lifetime Shingles, as well as three or more qualifying accessories made by the same company. The Lifetime Roofing System from GAF is designed to provide homeowners with peace of mind and support contractors who are selling and installing complete roofing systems. The company’s roofing products have been specifically designed to work together for superior, long-term protection and have

DO YOUR BEST - TRUST GOD FOR THE REST ““I can do all things through him who strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13 We are like runners standing at the starting line, waiting for the gun to sound for the start of the race … a new day … a new opportunity … a fresh start.When we have trained hard, put in our miles, eaten right and rested well, our bodies are ready to run. The rest is mental. Let me explain. William James, the father of American psychology, said: “Our belief at the beginning of a doubtful undertaking is the one thing that assures the successful outcome of any venture.” In other words, believe that you will succeed and you will. The great Olympian runner, Glenn Cunningham, said “For in running it is man against himself, the cruelest of opponents. The other runners are not the real enemies. His adversary lies within himself, in his ability, with brain and heart to master himself and his emotions.” Here is another way of saying it, “Life’s battles don’t always go To the stronger and faster man; But sooner or later the man who wins Is the man who thinks he can.” -Thinking, Walter D. Wintle

Cudnada Swinehart May 6, 1937 – October 17, 2007

Days and nights go by and sometimes we cry and we know why. It’s been five years since you have passed. Our love for you will always last. That’s why.

Love & Miss You Always, Preston, Jay, Curtiss, Linda, Ty and Christine

A writer of Detroit-based historical mysteries, D.E. Johnson is a graduate of Central Michigan University and a history buff who has been writing fiction since childhood. He comes by his interest in automotive history through his grandfather, who was the vice president of Checker Motors. Johnson is also the author of The Detroit Electric Scheme and Motor City Shakedown and lives with his family near Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Johnson will offer signed copies of his books for purchase. “Johnson’s spooky third series entry ensures its place among hot new historicals. His unique take on Detroit in the early 20th century and its burgeoning automotive culture make this entry a perfect crossover selection for historical fiction buffs." --Library Journal

A special thank you to all the friends and co-workers from Parker in Richland and Otsego for all the work for his memorial and all the food, flowers and monetary help. It is so appreciated. We appreciate all of our neighbors who helped so much. There are no words to let you know how it helped to have you by our side.

Thank you all so very much, Clara Lester, Sharon Lobar, Sue Richard, Lori Post, Karen Helms, nieces, nephews and cousins.
