Underinflated tires can wreak havoc on three frontsthey rob you of precious gas mileage (up to 15%), they wear out faster than properly inflated tires and they can cause an accident. Do the math. If you're getting 20 miles to the gallon on underinflated tires, you can possibly bump that to 23 with the proper pressure. If your gas tank holds 15 gallons and you get three extra miles a gallon, that's 45 miles per fillup. If you fill up once a week, that's 2,340 additional miles a year you're getting. Buy a quality tire gauge and check your tire pressure once a month.

Saturday, March 17th Albert Lea High School The Freeborn County Stars are working on their fancy footwork to raise money for the Freeborn County Red Cross. The 6th Annual Dancing with the Freeborn County Stars will be Saturday, March 17, 2012. Your evening will be filled with style and magic by this year’s dancers: Melanie Bloom and Rusty Dawkins; Angie and Seth Stadheim; Mary and Nathan Johnson; Mary Nelson and LaMar Staloch; Dr Tom and Linda Lang; Haley Allen and Sergio Chavez; Roxanne Ehrich and Roger Zeman; Kristen Dulas and Bryce Nelson. The dancers are vying for awards in three categories – Top Fundraisers Award, Audience Choice Award and the Star Award, which combines judges’ scores and the money attendees put in fishbowls that night. To support your favorite dancers please send your check to American Red Cross, Freeborn County Chapter, 1608 West Fountain Street, Albert Lea, MN 56007, give directly to your dancers or put in the fishbowl at the event. We are continuing the very popular silent auction along with the event. You’ll be able to shop as you enjoy refreshments in the commons area of the Albert Lea High School during the intermission. Tickets for this fantastic evening are on sale now. General admission tickets will be on sale for $10 at Hy-Vee, Ben’s Floral and Frame Designs and the Convention & Visitors Bureau. Reserved seating tickets ($15 or $20) will be available only at the Red Cross office, 1608 West Fountain Street, Albert Lea, MN 56007. The money raised will be used to provide Red Cross services to the residents of Freeborn County. For more information about the Dancing with the Freeborn County Stars event or about the American Red Cross please call us at 507-373-4544 or visit us on the web at www.redcrosstc.org. The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more information, please visit www.redcross.org or join our blog at http://blog.redcross.org

HERE’S SUDOKU HOW IT WORKS: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Home Improvements Eligible for Tax Breaks or Rebates Homeowners often look to make improvements to their homes to improve aesthetics, save money or make their homes more energy efficient. What they may not know is that certain home improvements may qualify them for manufacturer or energy supplier rebates and even federal tax credits that can help a person save even more. Not all products are eligible each year, so it's beneficial to know what tax incentives are out there regarding home retrofits. Here are some programs to keep in mind. U.S. residents who made home improvements in 2011 may be eligible for tax credits when filing a 2011 tax return. Installation and replacement of biomass stoves, HVAC systems, insulation, metal and asphalt roofs, nonsolar water heat-

ers and windows/doors can earn a person up to 10 percent of the cost, up to $500, or a specific amount from $50 to $300. Improvements must have been done to an existing home and principal residence by December 31, 2011. Federal tax credits for 2012 include geothermal heat pumps. These are similar to ordinary heat pumps, but use the ground instead of outside air to provide heating, air conditioning and, in most cases, hot water. Use of small residential wind turbines and solar energy systems, including solar water heaters and photovoltaic panels, are also eligible. These tax credits offer 30 percent of the cost of the renovation with no upper limit.

Landon Uthke Benefit On October 23, three year old Landon Uthke was injured in a lawn tractor accident at his home. As a result of the accident, Landonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left leg had to be amputated just above the knee. Quite the little trooper, Landon is quickly adjusting to changes in his lifestyle. Though parents Kevin and Petra Uthke are quietly thankful to have their son home with them, and reluctant to ask for assistance, the extraordinary medical expenses have understandably put a strain on the family budget. Landon is now a healthy growing boy, but will need a number of prosthetic limbs designed and fitted in the years to come. Family and friends are hosting a fundraiser to establish an account that will assist with Landonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued medical care.

Home Improvements Eligible for Tax Breaks or Rebates Homeowners often look to make improvements to their homes to improve aesthetics, save money or make their homes more energy efficient. What they may not know is that certain home improvements may qualify them for manufacturer or energy supplier rebates and even federal tax credits that can help a person save even more. Not all products are eligible each year, so it's beneficial to know what tax incentives are out there regarding home retrofits. Here are some programs to keep in mind. U.S. residents who made home improvements in 2011 may be eligible for tax credits when filing a 2011 tax return. Installation and replacement of biomass stoves, HVAC systems, insulation, metal and asphalt roofs, nonsolar water heat-

ers and windows/doors can earn a person up to 10 percent of the cost, up to $500, or a specific amount from $50 to $300. Improvements must have been done to an existing home and principal residence by December 31, 2011. Federal tax credits for 2012 include geothermal heat pumps. These are similar to ordinary heat pumps, but use the ground instead of outside air to provide heating, air conditioning and, in most cases, hot water. Use of small residential wind turbines and solar energy systems, including solar water heaters and photovoltaic panels, are also eligible. These tax credits offer 30 percent of the cost of the renovation with no upper limit.

Landon Uthke Benefit On October 23, three year old Landon Uthke was injured in a lawn tractor accident at his home. As a result of the accident, Landonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left leg had to be amputated just above the knee. Quite the little trooper, Landon is quickly adjusting to changes in his lifestyle. Though parents Kevin and Petra Uthke are quietly thankful to have their son home with them, and reluctant to ask for assistance, the extraordinary medical expenses have understandably put a strain on the family budget. Landon is now a healthy growing boy, but will need a number of prosthetic limbs designed and fitted in the years to come. Family and friends are hosting a fundraiser to establish an account that will assist with Landonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued medical care.

HERE’S SUDOKU HOW IT WORKS: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Saturday, March 17th Albert Lea High School The Freeborn County Stars are working on their fancy footwork to raise money for the Freeborn County Red Cross. The 6th Annual Dancing with the Freeborn County Stars will be Saturday, March 17, 2012. Your evening will be filled with style and magic by this year’s dancers: Melanie Bloom and Rusty Dawkins; Angie and Seth Stadheim; Mary and Nathan Johnson; Mary Nelson and LaMar Staloch; Dr Tom and Linda Lang; Haley Allen and Sergio Chavez; Roxanne Ehrich and Roger Zeman; Kristen Dulas and Bryce Nelson. The dancers are vying for awards in three categories – Top Fundraisers Award, Audience Choice Award and the Star Award, which combines judges’ scores and the money attendees put in fishbowls that night. To support your favorite dancers please send your check to American Red Cross, Freeborn County Chapter, 1608 West Fountain Street, Albert Lea, MN 56007, give directly to your dancers or put in the fishbowl at the event. We are continuing the very popular silent auction along with the event. You’ll be able to shop as you enjoy refreshments in the commons area of the Albert Lea High School during the intermission. Tickets for this fantastic evening are on sale now. General admission tickets will be on sale for $10 at Hy-Vee, Ben’s Floral and Frame Designs and the Convention & Visitors Bureau. Reserved seating tickets ($15 or $20) will be available only at the Red Cross office, 1608 West Fountain Street, Albert Lea, MN 56007. The money raised will be used to provide Red Cross services to the residents of Freeborn County. For more information about the Dancing with the Freeborn County Stars event or about the American Red Cross please call us at 507-373-4544 or visit us on the web at www.redcrosstc.org. The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Underinflated tires can wreak havoc on three frontsthey rob you of precious gas mileage (up to 15%), they wear out faster than properly inflated tires and they can cause an accident. Do the math. If you're getting 20 miles to the gallon on underinflated tires, you can possibly bump that to 23 with the proper pressure. If your gas tank holds 15 gallons and you get three extra miles a gallon, that's 45 miles per fillup. If you fill up once a week, that's 2,340 additional miles a year you're getting. Buy a quality tire gauge and check your tire pressure once a month.
