Mid-Mon Valley Model Railroad Club Opens Doors For The Holidays

21

...the Right BRANDS...the B Right PRIICE... the Right R ADVICE...NICE!!

The doors of the Mid-Mon Valley Model Railroad Club will be opened to the public once again this Holiday season. Visitors can walk through three rooms of scenery as the trains run on a double-decked layout and use the helix (spiral) in a fourth room to travel from the lower level to the upper level and back again. Along the way, one can see a blast furnace, a rolling mill, a strip-mine, coke ovens, a railroad yard and a trolley line. The club is working to depict the major industries in the Mid-Mon Valley as they interacted with the railroads. There have been several other improvements made to the layout this year. More scenery has been completed and several structures have been added. Historical artifacts from area railroads are on display in the last room and photographs line the hallway toward the roomful of artifacts. Items to be seen include trainmen's lanterns, switch locks, tickets, timetables, caps, signal lights and many other fascinating objects. The club will be open on weekends from November 30, 2019 through January 5, 2020. Visitors will be received each Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon until 5:00 p.m. The club is located on the second floor of 159 Main Street in New Eagle (above the New Eagle Borough Municipal Building). Although there is no admission fee, visitors are encouraged to donate to the layout fund in the caboose-shaped box located near the entrance. Suggested donation levels are at least $1 per person. Coloring pages and publications about the hobby are available free of charge to children of all ages. Seeing model trains at the Holidays is a wonderful tradition. Make New Eagle a stop on your Holiday tour. For further information, call S. Werner at 724-3798584.

About The Mid-Mon Valley Model Railroad Club The Mid-Mon Valley Model Railroad Club was established in 1986 by a group of people interested in railroading and in model railroads. Its goal is to build a layout depicting a sense of the history of Monongahela valley and life in the heyday of the railroads in the area. The club’s funds come from modest dues and a couple of fundraisers during the year. Most of the trains running on the layout belong to the individual members of the club. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in model railroading, regardless of skill level. Junior members, age 10 – 18, are welcome with an adult sponsor. Members are all members of the National Model Railroad Association. Meetings, work sessions, and eventually, operating sessions are held Friday evenings from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Individuals interested in membership should talk with one of the members during a visit. More information is available on the website: www.mmvmrrc.org

WQED Brings Exclusive Documentary Screening on Hometown Hero to Mon Valley WQED will present an exclusive, advanced screening of a new WQED documentary, ‘Homecoming: Sgt. Hamilton’s Long Journey’, on the evening of Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at 7:00 PM at Ringgold Middle School in Monongahela. The documentary will have its television premiere on WQED-TV on Thursday, November 7 at 8pm. Homecoming: Sgt. Hamilton’s Long Journey tells the story of Sgt. Vernon Hamilton, a 19-year-old Army Air Corpsman from Monongahela whose plane was shot down over Germany during World War II. The plane and remains of the three crew members were declared unrecoverable. However, decades later an excavation and forensics team would bring long-awaited closure to his family. Sgt. Hamilton’s 1943 Monongahela High School ring – discovered at the excavation site – was a key component in identifying his remains. The 30-minute documentary features poignant interviews with family members and captures the triumphant homecoming tribute in April 2019 - organized by the people

of Monongahela. WQED also takes viewers to the Offutt Air Force base in Omaha, Nebraska where the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) identified the Hamilton remains. WQED Executive Producer David Solomon, who wrote, produced and directed the documentary is a Monongahela native and Ringgold High School graduate. “The community of Monongahela and surrounding Mon Valley turned out in a big way for Sgt. Hamilton’s funeral. These are mostly people who never met the man or his family, yet they lined the streets in respect. It is fitting that we hold our premiere screening in Mon City.” Doors open at 6:15pm with the program beginning at 7pm. Immediately following the 30-minute documentary screening, Solomon will moderate a panel discussion which includes: • Carrie LeGarde, an anthropologist with the United States Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency which handled the identification of Sgt. Hamilton's remains. The DPAA houses the world's largest forensic

skeletal laboratory containing remains from war zones dating back to World War II. Ms. LeGarde is currently the lead anthropologist working to identify the remains of 429 men killed on the USS Oklahoma at Pearl Harbor. • Mark Noah, Founder and Director of History Flight, which excavated the Hamilton crash site in Germany. History Flight has successfully recovered the remains of 325 MIAs from World War II. • Shelley Hamilton Atkins, of Lighthouse Point, FL. Mrs. Atkins is a Monongahela native and the niece of Sgt. Vernon Hamilton. • Paul Ruggieri, Emmy Award winning editor and director of photography on the "Homecoming" documentary. Ruggieri and Solomon have worked together on numerous awardwinning historical, human interest and medical documentaries.

Monongahela 250 Years of Fashion: A Liquid Journey Through our City's Early Years Fashion Show, Whiskey Pairing and Small Plate Food The Monongahela Area Historical Society is presenting a Fashion Show with Whiskey Pairing and Small Plate Food Items on Friday, November 22 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. This event will be held at Rippel's on the Creek, located at 807 Dry Run Road in Monongahela. The event is a combination of a fashion show (of interest to men and women) that takes participants back in time, seeing fashion items from throughout Monongahela's history. As they watch, guests will sample whiskey selections paired with small plate food items. Attendees will be captivated by the wide array of items presented by the delightful fashion expert Debbie Popp Gilbert. Debbie is vice president of the Elizabeth Forward Historical

Society and puts on historical fashion shows. Those under 21 are welcome to purchase tickets but instead of receiving alcohol, will be served a very special beverage called a "Cheerful Willoughby"...along the lines of a Shirley Temple, but named after a Monongahela icon who romped in our opera house as a little girl and went on to become a silent film star. Don't miss this fun and entertaining evening. It was so popular during the Monongahela 250th celebration that we have been asked to offer it again. Tickets are $30 and are available by calling 724-258-2377, or purchase at the website https://mahs.ticketleap.com/monongahela-250years-of-fashion-a-liquid-journey-through-our-c/

The PT Library Foundation Hosts Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist Anna Quindlen Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Anna Quindlen will be the featured author for The Peters Township Library Foundation’s 3nd annual ‘Novel November’ literary event on Thursday, November 7 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are on sale through the library website at www.ptlibrary.org or at the Library Services Desk. Prices are $20 for Adults for general admission seating and $5 for Students. A limited number of VIP tickets will be sold for $60 and include VIP reserved seating, a preevent reception/book signing with Anna Quindlen, passed hors-d’oeuvres by Chef Garnett Livingston, and a copy of one of Quindlen’s books. The venue will be the Peters Township High School Auditorium at 264 East McMurray Road in McMurray. A book signing will follow the program. Books will be sold by Riverstone Bookstore. Bestselling author, Pulitzer Prizewinning journalist, and social critic Anna Quindlen has appeared in some of America’s most influential newspapers, magazines, and prominent fiction and non-fiction bestseller lists. Even before blogs existed, she was the go-to writer for millions of readers on the joys and challenges of family, motherhood, and modern life. Bringing to the stage her ability to balance the political with the personal, Quindlen discusses every aspect of our culture from work–life balance and education to health care, philanthropy, and social justice. Quindlen's newest New York Times bestseller, Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting, celebrates the love and joy and many lessons learned from being a grandmother. Her latest bestselling novel, Alternate Side, is a provocative look at what it means to be a mother, a wife, and a woman at a moment of

reckoning. Thirteen of Quindlen’s books, including seven of her novels, have appeared on The New York Times Best Sellers list. One True Thing became a feature film starring Renee Zellweger and Meryl Streep, and Black and Blue was made into a TV movie. Her book, A Short Guide to A Happy Life, sold well over one million copies. Quindlen’s memoir on aging, Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake debuted at #1 on The New York Times Best Sellers list, while her follow-up bestseller, Still Life with Bread Crumbs, debuted at #3. One of the top “100 Outstanding Journalists in the United States of the Last 100 Years,” Quindlen began her career at age 18 as a copy girl.

PIC Offering Free CDL Training to Young Adults

‘Sock it to a Vet’ Day Event in Belle Vernon

The Private Industry Council of Westmoreland/Fayette, Inc. (PIC) has been awarded a grant for 2019-2020 by the Westmoreland-Fayette Workforce Investment Board to provide CDL training and other workforce skills to young adults. The goal of the grant is to support 19-24 year old atrisk young adults to acquire career specific and employment preparation skills leading to certification and employment in the local transportation industry. The young adults must meet eligibility criteria established by the Workforce Investment Opportunities Act (WIOA). They must be out-ofschool and live in either Fayette or Westmoreland County, are currently under-employed or unemployed and are in a fathering role. “This is a great opportunity for a young adult who is looking for a reliable and high paying career to receive a CDL license and other credentials for free which normally costs several thousand dollars,” said Alec Italiano, Director of Workforce and Economic Development for PIC. “The demand is definitely out there for CDL drivers at all different levels of experience.” The program consist of 319 hours which will include a customer service curriculum, parenting curriculum, transportation career pathway curriculum, a workforce development curriculum — including industry recognized credentials such as forklift certification and OSHA 10 — and a 7-week CDL training complete with a hazardous materials endorsement. The program will be offered in several locations including the PIC offices in Greensburg, Lemont Furnace and Douglas Education Center sites in either Monessen or at the Connellsville Airport. The young adults will participate in PIC’s DADS MATTER program. This 20-hour program includes an evidenced based parenting curriculum designed to encourage open communication with the participant’s partner and child as well as provide parenting techniques. Participants will also complete a 40-hour customer service and sales certification through the National Retail Federation. All of the skills obtained through these trainings will provide participants the necessary skills to obtain and retain employment in the local transportation industry. If you are interested or know someone who might be, please contact the PIC Youth Program at 724-836-2600 ext. 207 or email youthprograms@privateindustrycouncil.com

HOLIDAY ENTERTAINING

30 30 messengerpaper.com

Holiday Entertaining Tips To Help You Make The Season Bright Invite the spirits of holidays past, present and future into your home this year. Blend the best of then and now, here and there, and try a few twists on tradition. For instance, deck the halls with a theme in mind. Go Victorian with lots of rich velvet and satin fabric on table and windowsills. Fresh fruit was a novelty in winter in the 19th century so plenty of apples, oranges and

pineapples, real or not, can add to the old-fashioned appeal. Alternatively, go futuristic with plenty of white lights, stark outlines and tons of tinsel. As for food, go international for your holiday feast’s finale. Include a buche de Noel, or Christmas Yule log cake from France. It consists of a thin vanilla Genoise cake rolled up around chocolate buttercream frosting and then iced and decorated to look like a

log. The original, it is said, was cleverly created by a 19th century chef. Or try a sweet, round Chinese New Year’s cake made from rice flour and brown sugar. The shape represents togetherness. In Israel and many other places where Jews gather, a favorite dessert for Hanukkah is the jelly doughnut. Perhaps you would prefer to take a taste trip to Italy and enjoy tiramisu, made from finger biscuits, egg yolks, sugar, coffee, mascarpone cheese and cocoa powder. You can get more good advice from Genevieve Gorder, American celebrity interior designer, television host and co-star of “Trading Spaces” on TLC. She offers these four tips: 1. For holiday entertaining, keep a bag or two of cranberries in your freezer so you can add some to a glass of wine as a fun alternative to ice cubes. 2. Buy a vintage skirt or dress and use it as a tree skirt. 3. For rooms where you don’t have

This holiday season, all your senses can enjoy novelty and traditions.

enough space for a Christmas tree, cut the back half off and put the tree against a wall. 4. Scent is the most important piece of holiday decor at home. Gorder suggests you spread the joy of the season in your house by using Air Wick limited edition seasonal scents, such as her favorite, Woodland Pine. That’s just one of the limited edition Seasonal Scents available from Air Wick this year. The others are Sugar Cookies, Warm Apple Crumble and Warm Mahogany.

HOLIDAY ENTERTAINING

Hosting Tips For Your Next Holiday Get-Together There are always reasons to entertain, especially now during the holidays. From decor to dessert, there isn't one exact recipe for the perfect party, and the right combination can make a real difference. Candy maker HARIBO suggests sprinkling in moments of sweet childlike happiness to strike a memorable chord with party-goers. So, if you're dreaming of ways to make your next get-together a reality, here are three helpful tips.

Prepare a tasty treat An unforgettable food spread could very well be the cherry on top of a perfect party. Attempt a secret family recipe or recreate a dish from your favorite cooking show - the options are endless. If you're short on time, plan a potluck where each guest brings an item. This is a delicious way to eat all your favorite foods and try new ones, too. Or perhaps you'd prefer more light refreshments and quick bites. You can choose sour and sweet treats for something to satisfy each party guest's palate. For example, gummi bears are tasty, easy to eat, they don't make a mess and they're enjoyed by all ages. "Gummi bears are a delicious and shareable treat, so they're a party goto that appeals to people of all ages," says Lauren Triffler, head of communications, HARIBO. "Our iconic Goldbears are a particular fan favorite of gummi enthusiasts and come in five

fruity flavors - Strawberry, Pineapple, Lemon, Orange and Raspberry. Through the fun variety in every bag, they add choices to any party mix and take the thought out of planning." The party favor is a popular way to win over guests and entice their return for future gatherings. As they leave, hand out mini bags of Goldbears and watch eyes light up.

Pick a creative theme Whether filled with fun costumes or favorite tunes, a themed party can serve as a natural ice breaker and an easy way to connect with fellow partygoers. To really bring your theme to life, don't skimp on decorations. They will enhance your space, and upon entry, guests will feel transported to a different time or place. Incorporating games or activities can also add to a theme. A deck of cards for poker at Casino Night or a disco dance at a '70s soiree are unique ways to up the ante and may even inspire feelings of fond nostalgia. Plus, they provide crowd-pleasing amusement. Also, don't let timeliness spoil your party plans. An indoor pool party in the middle of winter? Make it a splash. Your birthday is still six months away? Hooray for half birthdays. Remember, a theme is a great opportunity to get creative. So, let it take your next party to the next level.

A Homeowner's Guide to Hanging Holiday Lights Let there be lights! Christmas lights, that is. And if the timing of when some homeowners started hanging them this year is any measure - as early as mid-October we're really, really anxious for some holiday cheer. Most of you will opt for relatively understated displays. Others will try to outdo neighbors by creating winter wonderland scenes so dazzlingly bright that aliens (assuming they're out there) can see them from galaxies away. "When I pass a suburban house festooned with twinkly, colored fairy lights, I always scream 'Bravo' out of the window of my car," Simon Doonan, creative ambassador of Barneys New York, has admitted. Whichever, here are some safety tips to keep in mind: • Never hang lights from your roof's shingles. "Making even the tiniest of holes in them or any roof component -- even with a stapler -will let moisture or leaks in, and potentially rot the roof," says Jason Joplin, program manager of the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence. Instead, use clips that hang from the gutter or eaves. • Metallic trees require special care. Gee, what could possibly go wrong by hanging electric lights on them? "The tree can become charged with electricity from faulty lights," warns the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, "and any person

touching a branch could be electrocuted." Colored spotlights, above or beside them, are the way to go. • Embrace the buddy system. Maybe they were all drinking spiked egg nog, but one oft-quoted study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 6,000 people wind up in emergency rooms annually just from holiday decorating-related falls. As most of the injured are men and most fall from ladders, let's all say it together: "Asking someone to hold the ladder for you, whether you're stringing lights on a roof or a tall tree, isn't wussy." • Don't Let 'er Rip: Even worse than being that one house on the block that never gets around to taking down decorations till spring is this: disassembling by haphazardly pulling lights off your roof from the cord. "You risk damaging the gutter that way," says Joplin, "and potentially the shingle if you didn't clip it correctly to begin with." Especially if you are planning elaborate displays, you might want to consider hiring a pro. GAF (gaf.com), North America's largest roofing manufacturer, makes it easy to find the most reputable (and insured) ones in your area by searching its website's GAF Master Elite Contractor database. Oh, and if you're truly into wowing others beyond your immediate street -- no, probably not E.T.s -it's best to stagger two sets of lights side by side to increase the density.

Animal Ordinance Discussed at Carroll Twp. Meeting

November 2019

Mariner East Transitions from Construction to Long Term Operations in Nottingham Township

By Miranda Startare A Carroll Township resident began the public forum at the October 1 monthly Supervisors Meeting by inquiring about the improvement of Hampton Road in front of her residence, which she would like to be re-surfaced. The road is not owned by the township and the resident was asked to present a survey and deed to her property to examine the right-of-way access to her property. The resident also inquired about the township ordinance that does not allow farm animals, asking the board to consider changing the ordinance to include chickens. Another resident at the meeting contributed to the discussion by describing his experience with a neighbor that kept many chickens and that became an unsanitary situation that included rodents infesting the area. The Supervisors stated that the ordinance says, “No Chickens,” and they will enforce the ordinance. In other business: • The Carroll Township Police Department hired Robert L. Cunningham II and Brandon Heinzelman as two part-time police officers, effective October 1. • Residents are reminded that the township will collect leaves during the month of November. • Residents are reminded that Waste Management collects items such as paints, TVs, and other electronics. Contact the trash collector to schedule a time for them to collect the items.

On Monday, Oct. 7, Energy Transfer representatives attended the Nottingham Township monthly Board of Supervisors meeting to provide a status report on final restoration and plans for long-term operations. Almost seven years have passed since Energy Transfer first introduced the Mariner East projects to Nottingham Township officials. In the 78 months since, over 600 miles of project pipeline was strung across the state, and two major natural gas liquids lines have been commissioned. Over that time, township officials got to know various members of the project team well. Township Supervisor Doug King expressed a mutual sense of respect to the Energy Transfer and the contractors who worked on the projects, highlighting a pleasant experience he had in September with members of the Energy Transfer road restoration contractors at Munntown Road. “I’ve had a great relationship with your company and your contractors over the years,” said King. “The permitting team that I’ve dealt with frequently was especially attentive and always worked very quickly to address our needs.” Over the course of the discussion, Koop provided photos of rights-of-way depicting various stages of restoration and reiterated the company’s obligation to restore vegetation to at least 70 percent growth, according to state earth disturbance permits. “What tonight represents is the culmination of six years of active Mariner East construction,” said Energy Transfer Community Affairs Lead Chris Koop. “We want to thank the Board of Supervisors and the community in Nottingham for your good will and patience.” ” In concluding his remarks, Koop added, “While we are for the most part fully complete in the township, it doesn’t mean we’re going away. I am still your primary contact with the company, and our operations personnel will be ready to respond to you as well.”

GASTROENTEROLOGY Q: Why getting a colonoscopy could be the best way to find the answer and save your life in the process.

A: What is one of the greatest success stories in modern medicine, the death rate from colorectal cancer has decreased significantly in the last 30 years. There has been a 2% decline in the rate of colon cancer among Americans every year for the last 15 years. Colorectal cancer (CRC) develops in the colon or rectum and is the second leading cause of cancer By Dr Nicholas Bellicini deaths in the U.S. According to the American Cancer Pittsburgh Society, approximately 140,000 new cases of CRC Gastroenterology were diagnosed last year and more than 50,000 died Associates from the disease. According to recent studies, both the incidence and mortality of CRC are declining due to improved screening efforts and early detection. However, numerous studies have shown that even greater reduction in CRC could be achieved if more people receive screening colonoscopies. Nearly all colon and rectal cancers start out as small polyps that can become larger and progress to dysplasia and cancer. Several different types of polyps can form in the colon, but the most common and important are adenomas. These are the polyps that most often transform into cancer. The goal of CRC screening exams is to detect and remove adenomas before they progress. Numerous tests are available for CRC screening, but the gold standard is the colonoscopy. For the procedure, the patient is comfortably and safely sedated, and a thin, flexible rubber scope with a tiny camera is inserted into the rectum and advanced gently around the colon. Colonoscopy detects most small polyps and almost all large polyps and cancers, which are then removed and analyzed. The typical exam lasts only 15-20 minutes. In 2018, the American Cancer Society changed the recommendation for both men and women at average screening risks to begin screening at age 45 instead of 50. If no polyps are found, the exam should be repeated every 10 years. Repeat exams may be considered sooner with people with increased risk factors, such as family history of colon cancer, African Americans, smokers, obesity, or people with inflammatory bowel disease. Age should not be a cut off per multiple societal recommendations. People who are in good health and with a life expectancy of more than 10 years should continue regular colorectal screening through the age of 75. Dr Nicholas Bellicini is a board certified Gastroenterologist in private practice serving patients in the Mon Valley, South Hills and city of Pittsburgh, including Spartan Surgical Center, South Hills Endoscopy Center, St Clair Hospital and UPMC Mercy.

AHN Jefferson Hospital is First in Allegheny County to Earn Joint Commission’s Perinatal Care Certification Allegheny Health Network’s Jefferson Hospital is the first hospital in Allegheny County and one of just 68 in the entire United States to earn The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Perinatal Care Certification, a symbol of quality that reflects Jefferson’s commitment to upholding standards that are critical to improving and maintaining the health of newborns and their mothers. The certification recognizes Jefferson’s efforts to achieve integrated, coordinated, patient-centered care for clinically uncomplicated pregnancies and births, and its commitment to safe, quality patient care. The certification uses standards, guidelines and The Joint Commission’s perinatal care core performance measures for managing and monitoring critical aspects of women’s and infants care. In order to achieve the certification, Jefferson underwent a rigorous site review earlier this year. A team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated Jefferson’s compliance with certification standards, focusing on program management and delivering clinical care. Joint Commission standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. The reviewers also conducted onsite observations and interviews. “This certification is a testament to the dedication and exceptional care offered by the entire staff of the AHN Women and Infants Center at Jefferson Hospital,” said Louise Urban, RN, President and CEO, Jefferson Hospital. “Led by David Logan, MD, they provide expert, compassionate, patient-centered care

every day, and their impact is evidence in the increasing number of families who are choosing to deliver their babies at Jefferson Hospital.” “Ever since it opened five years ago, the AHN Women and Infants Center at Jefferson Hospital has been exceeding expectations, and this prestigious designation is just the latest example,” said Allan Klapper, MD, Chair, AHN Women and Children Institute, and President, Wexford Hospital. "More and more South Hills families are discovering the quality, patient-centered labor and delivery care in a close-tohome setting at Jefferson Hospital." The AHN Women and Infants Center at Jefferson Hospital opened in late 2014 and was the first new maternity unit to open in Pennsylvania in the previous 30 years. The center quickly grew in popularity and last year delivered more than 1,000 babies. It is home to a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for non-critically ill infants as well as AHN Midwives. Approximately 8,000 babies were born in 2018 at AHN hospitals, a 60% increase over the past five years. AHN Women and Infants Centers offer personalized physician-patient relationships, one-on-one nursing care and family-centered birthing suites. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies over 22,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.

Home & Garden 3 Things That May Go Wrong If You Don't Winterize Your House (BPT) - Neglecting to winterize your home and letting small issues pile up can have big repercussions. HomeServe, a leading provider of service plans, repair and installation services for the home, wants to make sure you're aware of three major things that may go wrong if you don't winterize your house or neglect your heating system. 1. Your utility bills may skyrocket. Utility bills often jump up in the winter due to the increased hours of darkness and the cost to heat your home. But if your heater is on the fritz or your filters are clogged, you could be in for an even bigger surprise. Dirty filters cause your furnace to work harder, which leads to inefficiency and a shortened lifespan. Replacing filters is often an easy task for homeowners. A yearly tune-up is an inexpensive way to help prevent a costly system breakdown in the coming months. Also, keep in mind that some warranties require annual tune-ups, so don't let your warranty go invalid. 2. The threat of carbon monoxide is very real. Carbon monoxide poses a health threat when the heating system flue, vent or chimney becomes blocked from debris or other material. During a heating system tune-up, a professional service technician can check to make sure all your vents are not blocked and are working properly. Drains and traps also need to be checked and combustion gases should be analyzed and compared to the specifications of your furnace or boiler to make sure everything (Continued on following page)

is running safely. Installing a carbon monoxide detector in your home is another smart way to help with early detection. 3. Water pipes can burst. Before the cold sets in, make sure outside hoses are put away and water is turned off. Evaluate which pipes are at the greatest risk for freezing during cold weather. For example, if your water pipes come up from an un-insulated crawl space, or if they are in or close to an uninsulated outside wall or vent, they are more likely to freeze and burst in low temperatures. Inside pipes should be covered in insulation to keep pipes warmer longer. Pipe insulation is easy to apply and available at most hardware stores and home centers. By having an annual tune-up in the fall, you can catch small issues now, instead of experiencing bigger problems in the dead of winter. For more information on National Tune-Up Day, including a heating system check-list, visit nationaltuneupday.com.

READER ADVISORY: Reader Advisory: the National Trade Association we belong to has purchased the following classifieds. Determining the value of their service or product is advised by this publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer “employment” but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it’s illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. 800 numbers may or may not reach Canada.
