Is Stress Aq

than it has been in year" past?
Many .so-6alled d
experts will argue
that is so. TheY'll
point to the hustle
and bustle
of the ,
world and
tell you _.I
that the
stress is
getting g acob's
worse. It's
killing all i- jacob
of us. '.CoIt
Surely, it
couldn't have been worse in
the past.
Let's take a look at some
people and see what kind of
stress that they were under.
Imagine that you're a woman,
who made a mistake and lost
her home and her security just
because of that one mistake?
Would that cause you a lot of
I would say that Eve was
under stress.
Imagine for a moment
that you're the father ior the
mother of two children. In a
fit of rage and jealousy, one of
them kills the other one.
Wouldn't you be under stress?
Adam and Eve were.
What if you were given a,
mission and told to warn peo-
ple of an upcoming storm? No
matter how much you yelled
or screamed, begged or plead-


God Thing?
ed, no one would d listen to
you, and instead they laughed
in your face. Would-

Can you imagine praying
until your sweat became as
drops of blood that a mission
that you had to undertake
would be taken away from
you? Isn't that stress? I think
even Jesus felt the stress. At
the end, though, He said, "Not
My will, but Your Will, Lord."
Stress can come from
God. It tells us in the Bible
that He is the Potter and we,
are the clay. He molds us and
makes us into what He wants
us to be. To be molded, the
'clay has to undergo stress.
I discovered this truth the
other day, when I was reading
a .book entitled Postmarked
Heaven. It uplifted me and
helped me see'that much of
my stress actually comes from
God and it can be a good
thing! Many times, it is a God

mation as he responded to the scene.
Two other deputies were also responding to assist Sleigher.
At 12:06 a.m., Sleigher arrived on the scene at the residence
and the caller met him at the end of the driveway. Sleigher was
advised as to what was going on inside the residence. She also
stated that, at the sight of the first officer on the scene, that the
suspect had said he would kill his victim.
According to FDLE and the Madison County Sheriff's De-
partment, Sleigher entered the residence and located the male in
the kitchen area on the floor, on top of the female, holding a
knife to her throat. The deputy confronted the subject and he
drew back in an attempt to stab the female.
Sleigher shot the subject and reached for the lady in an at-
tempt to drag her from under the male. The male drew back in
another attempt to stab the female and Sleigher shot him again.
The female was pulled to safety and the scene was secured.
Madison County EMS arrived on the scene and pronounced
the subject dead at the scene.. .
He was identified as John Robert W\atkins. 29, of 695 Plan-
tation Street in Lee. The female was identified as Myra Siln-
mons, 41, who was living at the location where the shooting
took place with her daughter and her daughter's husband..
Sheriff Peter C. Bucher requested that the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the 3rd Judicial Circuit
State Attorney's Office investigate the incident and shooting.
Deputy Sleigher is on administrative leave until State Attorney
Jerry Blair's office convenes a grand jury to hear the case.

Finding The Joyful Moments

In Troubled Times

My sister and I
visited our father in
the Lake Park of
Center last
with some
ambivalent Gin

lighted with
the care, Father has received
there; he is the true; resurrec-
tion man since becomintn a
resident. However, 'last week
Swe were getting ready to in-
stall our mother .there, too;
thus the mixed feelings. Little
did w% e know" that God had pre-
pared the way for us.
: While we were standing,
by Father's bedside. one of his'
nurses stopped by .and asked,
"How is Vour motherr" We
told her that Mother %would be
.coming to them in a da\ or
two. The;nurse broke into a
huge grin and replied. "'Oh. I
hope she comes to our hall. I
would love to take care of
Sour mother." And she dashed,
off down the hall.
Susan and I exchanged
puzzled looks; then the nurse
returned with the head nurse.
That person exclaimed, "I just
hope your, mother gets a room
on this hall. I would just love
to take care of Miss Clara."
Nurse #1 dashed off again, re-
turning in a few minutes with
the news that a room three:
doors down had a vacancy.
The head nurse told us, "If you
request it, we can ask that she
have that bed." ,
By this time, SusaLi and I
were wondering just how
many more encomiums the
head, nurse would heap upon
our mother (in absentia). We
heartily agreed on the: sug-
gested room, and went back to
the hospital to relate the tale
to our mother. After hearing
what we considered an amaz-
ing story, Mother just com-
mented, "Well, I always try to
be nice to them." We: figure

tger a knowing
S,.; that the
p e0people

... Our ]noth-
er really care about her as a
person and truly desire the
best for her.
On Thursday, \then I
dro\e Mother from the hospi-
tal to Lake Park, we w heeled
past the room where Father
sat in his wheelchair looking
out the window. The CNAs
and I got her settled in bed.
and I began to unpack her
things. One item \ as a framed
picture of my parents. w which I
set on a shelf so Mother can
see it. The CNAs wkent crazy
over it. Then, one of them
slipped a%\ a\ and returned
w ith Father in his wheelchair:
she pushed him up next to
Mother's bed,. and I thought
she would split the sun with
her delighted grin. She had
not seen or talked to him for
almost a week, and suddenly
here was her chance to touch
her husband of 65 years. What
a treasured moment! That
\ young CNA knew' exactly
w hat m\ mother needed.
In our troubled time, God
let us have a couple of joyful
moments. Our mother is still
\ery weak, but is able to re-
spond to us and to Father's
visits to her room., lI.Jve been
ordering her a phone. bringing
her newspapers, marking her
clothing, and such like; mean-
while, she's just being nice to
people. That's a gift, and one
that prepared her w\ a into this
new situation of life.
Thank tlhe Lord for letting
me be in on these precious
joyful moments. I treasure
them as pearls in the "bus\ -
ness" of my own life. They
are a great rew% ard.

list of strate-
gies to minimize your gas con-
sumption. This week I
thought I would pass the tips
Plan Ahead
Walk or bike whenever
possible. The best way to save
on gas is not to buy it. Check
to see if your community has
any organizations or programs
to promote the development of
an integrated bicycling,
wheeling and pedestrian net-
Try to combine errands
on one.run and avoid unneces-
sary driving.
If possible, adjust your
work schedule to arrive and
leave work at off times to
avoid peak rush hours and
traffic jams. You'll spend less
time idling in traffic and con-
sume less fuel.
Carpool to. share com-
muting costs.
Use Our Air Condition-
ing Sparingly
On short trips or at low
speeds, air conditioners dra-
matically reduce gas mileage.
Drive with your v. indiw s
dow' or- run Nour air' condi-
tioning at a lower setting.
At high speeds, open
windows create drag and re-
duce your gas mileage, so it's
cheaper to use air conditioning
on highways.
Turn off the air condi-
tioning a few minutes before,
you reach your destination.
.Let the fan circulate the cool
Keep Your Car in Shape
Clean or, change the air
fiber. According to a recent
government report, replacing
or cleaning a clogged air filter
can improve your car's gas
mileage by as much as 10 per-

make sure they are
properly gapped.

erly set.
your tire
1 Coun.- pressure.

n Serv over in-
flated tires
Douglas... waste gas.
Xolumnistl. *Use
the recom-
m e n.d e d
grade of motor oil. Using the
manufacturer's recommended
grade of ,motor oil can im-
*prove your gas mileage by 1-2
percent. Look for motor oil
that says "Energy Conserving"
Steel-belted radial tires
may increase gasoline mileage
by up to 10 percent.
Drive for Fuel Efficiency
Aggressive driving
(speeding, rapid acceleration
and braking) can lower your
gas mileage by 33 percent at
highway speeds and by 5 per-
cent around town.,
Drive the speed limit.
Gas mileage decreases. rapidly
at speeds above 60 mph.. Each
5 mph you drive over 60 mph
is like pan mg an additional 10
cents per gallon for gas.
Accelerate slowly
Try not to idle your en-
gine. Idling gets 0 miles per
gallon. In most cases, it takes.
less gas to restart the car than
to let it idle for more than 2
minutes. Use cruise control on
highways. Cruise control
helps you maintain a"'cbnstafit
speed'- and' will' usually save
you money.
At the Pump,
Don't "top off the tank".
Some of the gas may expand
in the heat :and overflow from
the tank.
Don't use a higher oc-
tane gas than you need. Most
cars are built to run on regular
unleaded gas.
Dump the Garbage
While it's important to
have a spare tire and an emer-
gency kit, check to see if
you're carrying extra unneces-
sary weight. Remove the extra
clutter from your trunk. The
more weight you haul, the
more it costs.

chicken, baked beans, potato salad, iced tea
and cookies luncheon which followed in .a
the Lee Business Complex. The food was
prepared by the new 'Holy Smoke Restau-
rant and was delicious. Channel 6 reporter Marise Estime and
her videographer were delayed by road construction ori US 90,
but still arrived in time to cover both the park and the business
complex, plus enjoying the barbecue lunch. Both events were
on the evening and the late news and also' on the next morning
news. We thank both the ones who came from Channel 6 and
the station itself for the coverage. .
We enjoyed thoroughly some recent columns which ap-
peared in our county's newspapers, to wit: Ginger Jarvis' writ-
ing about dresses her mother' made from feed sacks I know
from experience what nice dresses can be made from them, for
we did the same for our girls, using rick rack and pieces of old
lace for trim; for_ the white ones we used smocking and em-
broidery. We also made shirts for the boys from those and
girls' underwear from bleached flour sacks. Then we curled
the girls' long blond hair and they went to school all pretty and
starched! Those were the good old days, Ginger!
Then there was Mike Moore's column about the English

language we have always enjoyed learning anything but es-
pecially English. We've been told it is one of the hardest lan-
guages to learn, ex. bough, cough, through, dough, fought, etc.
But how can it be harder than Greek or Chinese? The
language, though, in the right hands such as a poets','
can be made to laugh, dance, cry, sing,' be loving,
compassionate, kind, show passion, terror, and all the
.sides of human nature. We love it!
Also there was Lanette Hill's "Re-
member When ...'' which took us so
many years into the past. But we remem-
ber a past, farther back, before wringer
-.. washers to rub boards and wash pots; be-
lihe. 7T fore. 8 tracks to Victrolas; before television
or even radio; when all the doors and win-
' dows were opened wide for air condition-
ing; when all meals were cooked on' wood
stoves even in the August heat. But we
enjoyed the memories which your column evoked, Lanette.'
Then Sheree Miller took us on a wild old west round-up,
then asked if we would like a second helping.' We definitely
would, Sheree, but how will you keep us on such an excited
high when you have killed your fatted calf, er T-Bone, that is?
Add to all of the above the dramas which' have been on-
going, that is, the hospital, the French controversy, etc. and
the interesting columns of Mary Ellen and Joe Boyles. All
of this is making our newspaper reading much more enjoy-
Much is on the books for the future of our town and
we will let, you in on more of it soon, but for now we bid
you a fond farewell for. a while.
P. S. Please keep all of the folks in last week's col-.
umn in your prayers, plus Elizabeth Carter, the family of
Mildred Guess (our condolences), and yours truly and
Gail Carter, who is home from an extended hospital stay
.with a new knee and in pain.

Building A Monument
It was in the city park of Madison. The old veteran worked
hard. The stone monument was tall and heavy. He paused to re-

the beginning of the war."

Looking For

By Mike Moore
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Scouts in Madison
County need a permanent
The group, which has
been meeting at the downtown
Madis .fire station, held its
last meeting there recently.
The Boy Scout troop, Cub
Scout Pack, .and Girl Scout
troops have outcrow~n the fire
"It is a good problem."
said Lanette Hill, one ol 'he
Boy Scout Troop 633 now
has 10 members with three
more possible enrollees, as
well as leaders. The Cub Scout
Pack, also known as 633, has
13 members plus leaders. Girl
Scout Troop 408 has about 12
members plus leaders. The
Girl Scout group includes
Daisies, Brownies,, Junior
Girls, and Cadettes.
There are just too many
people to continue meeting at
the fire station. As a temporary
solution, the Scouts will begin
meeting in the Madison Coun-
ty Public Library. However,
this is not a place where re-
freshments can be served.
But it is only a temporary
home and cannot handle the
growing numbers of young
people involved.
Anyone with suggestions
for a building where the Scouts
can gather, please contact Hill
at 971-5114. The building or
room will need lighting, bath-
rooms and water, if possible.
It would be nice to be able to
have refreshments sometimes
at the meetings on Pack Meet-
ing nights, Or Special Badge
Award Ceremonies.
It is possible that meeting
dates and times might have to
change, but for now plans are
for the groups to meet at the
times listed below.
Cub Scout Pack #633
meets at 6:00 pm until 7:00 pm
Boy Scout Troop #633

Senior Citizens


Provides Help

In Many Ways
The Senior Citizens Council of Madison
County Inc. SCC is the primary service
provider for the Older Americans Act and the
lead agency for the Community Care, for the
Elderly program in Madison County. Within
the past few years the programs have really
grown and there continues to be a waiting list
of individuals needing services.. Even though
they continue to have this waiting list, it tells
officials that the community is aware of the
services. SCC will continue to perform out-
reach in the community for the edification of
the community awareness of the services and
programs for the elderly.
SCC is most grateful to United Way of
the' Big Bend for their donation of $20.000.
which will assist the agencY' \ith rendering
services to the elderly. United \Va\ s support
is vital to seniors in man\ \ a\ s. such as pro-
viding. the elderly with preventive services
that will provide a sense of well being, inde-
pendence and the ability to live in the com-
munit\ with dignity.
SCC will be able 'continue assisting
twenty-eight elderly persons with the follow-
ing services: meals, emergency alert response
systems, homemaking, recreation. compan-
ionship. and transportation. Compared to the.
ser% ices and an institutional place our cost
ranges from $4.00U to $5.000 dollars per \ear
depending on the needs of that indi\ idual, but
provided \ ith federal and state funds. Refer-
rals can be by telephone, face to face and any-
one who is concerned for the needs of an el-
der person.
If you, as an individual, want to know
what you can do for the senior center pick one
of the following: Adopt a senior, blanket dri-.
ve with the cold weather is'on itsway, volun-
teer your time for exercise sessions at the cenr-

by Nell Dobbs '
October 2 began my eighth year of these
"Happenings." Thanks to all who read them
and to Willie Clare Copeland.
Sunday began with a deacons' breakfast
meeting at 8:00.
Beautiful flowers were placed in church by
Doris Raines in loving memory of Teford
Raines, Katie Raines, and
Marlyn Chutz. We pray for all
her family and better he:ilth
for her and all our ill ones.
Special prayers for Walter /.,
and Jennifer Copeland as the\ .
dedicated their precious httle
Parker Luke Copeland. The\ N
appreciated so many famrilhy
members sharing! I was sorrN -.
to have missed the service.
The Men's Quartet sang
"Jesus Saves" and the hymn of
commitment, "Come Into His Presence."
Amy Robinson sang in night church.
Preacher's message was from Acts 16 about a
very special woman named Lydia who sold
purple and who worshipped God and heard
Paul gladly. Not everyone did. He cast a spirit
out of a young woman and her masters ihad tthe
magistrates put Silas and him into prison. It is
God's will that men and women should not be,
enslaved. Yet many cannot understand the
worth of a soul or the change that is wrought by
the touch of the Nlaster's Hand.

mnance founded in Clearw after.
is an interactive 4 alk-through
drama w which tells the story of
e\ ernida people and their dai-
1y challenges. A guide leads
small groups from scene-io-

performance lasts about an
hour and the story is told
through nine scenes.

respective eternal destina-
tions. The consequences of
the choices the\ made are re-',
vealed as some are doomed
to Hell and others are wel-
corned to HeaVen by Jesus.
It is not the-intention of
the planners to shock or
scare anyone into believing
in Jesus. Instead, the idea is
to bring participants face to
face with their mortality and
Creator. gi ing them oppor-
tunity to look into the eyes of
the One. who paid love's ulti-
mate price.
Planners are contacting
churches, and organizations.
to ask them to place posters
where thee public can see
them. If readers are able to
pass along the -dates and
times for this drama it would
be greatly appreciated.
The free production is a
cooperative, ministry of
many churches working to-
gether to get God's Word but
to the unsaved. It was begun
to give people" in alternative
to- the "haunted hou'e" pro-
ductions which are often of-
fered during late October.
This will be the third year the
production has been offered
in Madison County. The first
year, the performances drew
about 500 people and in 2004
attendance was at about 700.
A total 'of about 300 deci-
sions have been recorded.
Although the story line
is similar each year, the
scenes are different, and the
audience is brought to a deci-
sion through a new approach.
This year's Judgement
House will be held at the
Madison County High
School. The times for per-
formances are:
Friday, October 21,
2005 from 7-8:45 pm
Saturday, October 22, 2005

In the early 1930s the
Great Depression struck the
United States. Times were not
just tough, they were brutal.
Families were in need of work
and many wandered, uprooted,
without a place to go.
A project was begun in
Madison County to help as
many of these as possible.
In January of 1935, the
Cherry Lake Rural Rehabilita-
tion Community got underway.
This was another of the many
federal projects launched by
the administration of President
Franklin D. Roosevelt.
At Cherry Lake, families
with some farm experience
were brought to Madison
County. The goal was to get the
families off the relief rolls in
Tampa, Miami, Jacksonville,
and other Florida cities. The
people were relocated in a co-
operative environment to help
them get back on their feet.
Plans for Cherry Lake
were big. The purchase of
20,800 good acres of land was
the goal. The Federal Emer-
gency Reconstruction Admin-
istration took .options on the
land and planned to move 500
families to Madison County.
The complete acreage was nev-
er purchased and only 167 fam-
ilies eventually moved in.
The settlers were to pay

the government for their farms
out of their earnings over a pe-
riod of years. In addition to the
community farm of 15,000
acres, each family was to have
its own garden plot.
The government pur-
chased a house for office space
at Cherry Lake. The Hinton
family sold a home built in the
1830s to the United States gov-
ernment ii 1935.
The project was under the
direction of one of the many
new agencies established by
the Roosevelt administration,
the Works Progress Adminis-
tration (WPA). The budget was

cut timber, .Ioik d, the saw
mills, built the houses, drilled
the wells, and installed the wa-
ter system. The water system
was still in operation as late as
1996. The Cherry Lake project

Dryer Sheets: Not Just For The Dryer Anyniore

. Friday. October 7, 2005

Pub r

On average, people
put more than five loads
of laundry in the dryer
each week. Many of those
loads contain dryer sheets,
used to control static and
infuse the clothes with a
light scent. Dryer sheets,
however, are increasingly
making their way out of
the laundry room and into
other parts of the home.
For example, home
researchers at Procter &
Gamble recommend using
dryer sheets:
in the linen closet to
help keep linens smelling
fresh day after day;
in shoes to help-give
odors the boot;
in the gym bag to
give odors a workout;
in dresser drawers
for fresher sweaters, lin-
gerie and socks;
behind curtains to
help freshen the whole

in the
give it a

diaper bin to
clean, fresh

These are all great,
useful ideas, and by log-
ging on to www.
you can find a remarkable
collection of additional
dryer sheet uses with
some very surprising ben-
efits. In addition to the
tips recommended by
P&G, the following is just
a small collection of ideas
suggested by consumers
like you across the coun-
Got a white streak

Use Bounce in the

The ABCs of Electrical Safety Devices

Reading the names of
electrical safety devices is
a lot like looking at an eye
chart: GFCI, IDCI, ALCI,
AFCI, LCDI -- the letters
kind of run together.
But don't worry.
There's nothing wrong
with your eyes, or your
glasses. All those letters
are just a handy way of
shortening the names of
various devices that can
protect you and your fami-
ly from dangerous electri-
cal hazards at home. ,
Ground Fault Circuit
Interrupters prevent shock
or electrocution by moni-
toring the current flowing
through a circuit. If an
appliance is damaged, cur-
rent can leak out of it (sim-
ilar to water leaking from a
broken pipe).
LUnfortunaiel, it can

travel to ground through a
person holding the appli-
ance in a wet or damp area.
The GFCI-equipped
receptacle senses the cur-
rent imbalance and imme-
diately shuts off the power
at the receptacle.
So effective are GFCIs
in preventing shock that
the National Electric Code
(NEC) has required them
in new bathrooms since the
mid-1970s. Since then, the
list, has grown longer to
include kitchens, crawl-
spaces, unfinished base-
ments, garages, or any
place indoors within six
.feet of water. Outdoors,
GFCIs are specified near
pools and hot- tubs.
Remember: water and
electricity are a dangerous
combination. GFCIs do
need to be checked month-
ly or after major electrical

storms to be sure they still
work. It only takes a
minute, but you need
to read the man-
ufacturei "
instruction /.
on how t
check k
there j
are two
b asic c
with small

tant Jiffer-
ences between
Immersion Detection
Circuit Interrupters and
Appliance Leakage Circuit
Interrupters are those large,
boxy plugs found at the
end of hairdryers and cer-
tain- other small appliance
cords. They work in slight-

ly different ways, but both
safeguard you by shutting,
off power should an
appliance be
immnnersed in
after, as in a

appliance. Shut

Hoff first, unplug their,
even if it's protected by
an IDCI or ALCI, don't
assume it's OK to stick
you hand in the water to
retrieve a submerged
appliance. Shut the circuit
off first, unplug the appli-
ance, drain the water, and
then remove the appliance.
Arc Fault Circuit

Interrupters are designed
to shut off a circuit when
they detect an arc. AFCIs
respond much more quick-
ly than regular circuit
breakers or fuses and are
useful for preventing fires
caused by arcing.
Considering that more
than 40,000 fires claiming
over 350 lives a year are
caused by problems in
home wiring, according to
the US Consumer Product
Safety Commission
(CPSC), it's no mystery
why AFCIs are required in
bedrooms for new residen-
tial construction.
AFCIs can be mount-
ed in breaker panels or
receptacles, or sometimes
in the
plug cap itself.
Leakage Current
Detection Interrupters

sense when arcing is
imminent in a room air
conditioner power cord,
and automatically shut the
unit off before a fire can
get started. The LCDI
monitors whether any cur-
rent is leaking from one of
the conductors onto a wire
mesh shield that's built
into the cord. LCDIs are
required by the NEC on
new room air conditioners,
where they are built right
into the plug cap on the
power cord.
Apart from the names,
there's nothing all that dif-
ficult to understand about
these electrical safety
devices. Just remember to
install them where needed,
check them periodically,
and they'll do the rest, pro-
tecting your home and
loved ones from electrical

Addling Ambiance

To The Bathroom

When it comes to
adding a luxurious touch to
your home d6cor, it pays to
tap into' your imagination
and think sinks, and faucets
and hardware.
A growing number of
consumers, are choosing to
add an elegant touch to out-
dated bathrooms. A reno-
vated bathroom provides a
great bathing experience
and greater relaxation. In
addition, by renovating
your bathroom, you could
actually increase the resale
value of your home.
From faucets to coun-
tertops to vanities, the latest
designs provide luxury
without extravagance and
can breathe new life into
the bathroom. Kitchen and
bath remodels recoup 77%

of their cost and are the two
rooms that return the most
on home investment dol-
When creating a luxu-
ry-for-less bathroom, bring
the outdoors in, and incor-
porate natural stone tile into
the d6cor. For example,
beauty, quality and value
come together in a new line
of granite vanity tops with
attached under-mount
porcelain sinks. These van-
ity tops from Pegasus add
a rich look to the bathroom-
and can be installed in a
few simple steps.
L.et ideas flow
A hot trend in bath-
room design is the addition
of elegant yet functional
faucets and hardware. A
variety of faucets and

accessories are available in

a reputable contractor? The
government has passed a
law that unfairly affects
your community-how can
you fight it?
Until now, questions
like these and others raised
by homeowners and home-
buyers could only be
answered by investing con-
siderable time and energy
researching Web sites,
publications, friends, fami-
ly members and other
resources. However,
now the millions of .
people who own i.
homes in this country
have an organization
that represents their
interests-the I
,Association tor r
Homeowners Across
America (AHAA).
AHAA is the first-,
of-its-kind nonprofit
and nonpartisan member-
ship organization that rep-
resents homeowners and
homebuyers-a potential
membership base of nearly
70 percent of the nation's
population. The organiza-
tion's goal is to improve
the homebuying and home-
ownership experience and
to serve as a one-stop
resource for homeowner-
ship-related education,
services, exclusive offers
and advocacy.
"It's hard to believe

that hundreds of millions
of people, who all have the
same vested interest in
homeownership issues in
this country, have never
before had an entity that
represents these interests,"
said Ann Ashburn, presi-
dent and CEO of AHAA.
"Now, they have a collec-
tive and extraordinarily
powerful voice-they are
going to be very hard to

AHAA provides its
members with a one-stop
resource for comprehen-
sive homeownership-relat-
ed information; access to a
network of preapproved
contractors and handymen;
homeownership prepara-
tion classes; financial-
planning and wealth-build-
ing assistance; exclusive
member-only discounts
and offers on home-related
products and services;
family and home life
resources; down payment

assistance; and home
retention and loss mitiga-
tion assistance should
members face the risk of
losing their homes due to
financial difficulties.
"Let's face it, the
homebuying process is
intimidating. Even years
after you buy your home,
you will still feel the
effects of the decisions you
made while you were
going through the home-
- buying process. So why
not arm yourself with as
much knowledge and
Support as possible?"
Ashburn said.
"Homebuyers and
homeowners finally
have the support and
the voice they've
always needed."
Perhaps the most sig-
nificant member bene-
fit, however, is advocacy
and representation. AHAA
is a voice on Capitol Hill,
serving as a watchdog on
issues of relevance and
communicating its mem-
bers' opinions.

homebuyers now have an
organization that repre-
sents their interests.

Dimmers: -A Brith( Idea For Your Home

Looking for an easy
way to add atmosphere
and style to your home
and save money at the
same time?
The Leviton Institute
recommends you replace
your old light switches
with modern, designer-
styled dimmer switch-
es. Crafted to
complement the look
of today's high-
end homes,
new dimmer
switches not
only look
great on your walls
but also offer
a dazzling
array of features.
Plus, their
energy-saving effi -
ciency will help lo\ er
your utility bills, too.

touch pad models turn on

finger up or down -:to

Easy-to-use rocker-
action dimmers feature a

switch that responds with
one tap by bringing lights
up to a preset level; a sec-

A double tap to the lower
portion turns them back
off again.

Fine adjustments are
easy with the ultra-smooth
slide dimmer. As with
touch pad models, some
slide dimmers come with

American Homeowners Are Accidental Investors

A recent national survey
revealed that the majority of
homeowners are "accidental
investors" when it comes to
real estate. While millions of
people are buying- homes,
only 11 percent are using this
time-honored investment as
a retirement-building tool
that could ensure long-term
financial security.
"Homeowners have
acknowledged that real estate
is the most 'able' investment
a person can make," says
Dave Jenks, co-author of The
New York Times and-
BusinessWeek best-seller
The Millionaire Real Estate
Investor. "It is, among other
things, appreciable, leverage-
able, improvable and stable.
Knowing that, it's sur-
prising that even though 81
percent of homeowners sur-
veyed described their pri-

mary home as a 'good' or
'great' investment, only 16
percent are seriously plan-
ning to invest in additional
real estate in the near future."
The independent study
commissioned by Keller
Williams Realty
International, the fifth-
largest, fastest-growing real
estate franchise company in
North America, surveyed
600 homeowners and renters
in the United States to find
out why they rely on tradi-
tional investment vehicles,
such as 401(k) plans and
savings accounts to fund
their retirement, instead of
additional real estate invest-
Homeowners stated
they were reluctant to invest
in real estate outside of their
primary homes because:
they don't have

enough money or are still
saving (37 percent);
it involves too much
responsibility, upkeep or
maintenance (34 percent);
they don't want to or
aren't interested (29 per-
it costs too much
money (28 percent);
they don't want mort-
gage payments (18 percent);
they have too much
debt already (14 percent).
Survey respondents also
highlighted a lack of finan-
cial savvy (homeowners, 9
percent versus renters, 15
percent) as a barrier to
investing in real estate.
The door is open but
only 11 percent of
Americans are using real
estate as a wealth-building

Additions Provide A Large Return On Investment

Reducing Energy Costs

Adding a deck can add
to the value of 3 our home.
Deck additions are one
of the leading renovations
that provide the largest
return on investment (ROI)
for homeowners compared
to refinishing a basement
(76 percent) or a major
kitchen remodel (79 per-7
cent) according to
RemodelingN MNagazine. In
fact, that same study found
that homeowners can
recoup more than 86 per-
cent of the building costs
when decks are added.
As a rule, improve-
ments that increase the-
functional space of a home
hold their value longer
than those that just make a
house function better.
Adding an outdoor deck.
can be the most inexpen-
sive way to bulk up the
square footage of your
home-just $6,900 on aver-
age, compared to $31,000

for a sunroom (Money
magazine, June 2005)-if
you do it- the right way .
Decks increase home
values only when they are
in good shape, so it is
important to use listin-d
materials or to regularly
perform maintenance to-
protect your investment.
Using the right deck-
ing materials is important.
Composite decking offers
homeowners the beauty of
wood with none of the typ-
ical maintenance issues.
No scraping, staining or

sealing is required. For
example, the composition
of Veranda composite
decking ensures its sustain-
ability; the plastic shields
the wood from insects and
moisture damage, while
the wood fiber protects the
plastic from UV damage
and adds stability:
-Renovating _an aging
deck is also an eas. and
cost effective option :for
honieowners looking to
spruce iup their outdoor
space .and imniproe their
ROL. The experts at
Veranda: decking suggest
homeowners consider the
following tips when adding
a deck:
Size Matters. A good
rule of thumb is that the
deck should be no larger
than one-third the footprint
of your home's main floor.
Shape and Decking
Patterns. A deck can be any
shape you want and, in

fact, simple changes like
an angled comer or a 45-
degree decking pattern can
dress up a house (45-
degree decking may
require substructure
improvements). You can
also add visual interest by
wrapping the deck around
a corner, adding built-in
benches, .integrating a
fence or screen on one
side, or even adding an
overhead screen.
Railings. Railings are
the most prominent visual
element in a deck and offer
a great opportunity for the
homeowner to use imagi-
nation and creativity.
Besides improving
your ROI, a deck can make
your home far more enjoy-
Adding an outdoor
deck can be the most inex-
pensive way to bulk up the

Fire Prevention Week 2005, Oct. 9-15

The National Fire
Protection Association
(NFPA) is urging the pub-
lic to focus on candle safe-
ty during Fire Prevention
Week 2005, October 9-15.
As the theme makes clear,
emphasis is placed on the
need for increased con-
sumer caution: "Use
Candles with Care: When
you go out, blow out!"
NFPA's public safety
campaign and related
materials concentrate on
.home use of candles,
which represent a uniquely
residential concern. Nine
out of 10 reported U.S.
candle fires occur in
homes. -Reported home
candle fires rose 15 percent
from 2000 to 2001; from
15,7000 to 18,000, contin-
uing a climb that began in
1990 when there were
5,500 candle fires.
Forty-one percent of
home candle fires start in
the bedroom, resulting in a
quarter of associated fire
deaths. Eleven percent of
these fires start after some-.
one falls asleep. NFPA's

research also shows that
home candle fires follow \ a
seasonal pattern-December
has nearly double the num-
ber of candle fires, com-
pared to an average month..
Leaving candles unat-
tended and using candles
for light were singled out
in NFPA's analysis as seri-
-ous fire problems. Always
stay awake and in the room
where candles are being
burned. In a power outage,
it is safer to use flashlights
or other light sources gen-
erated by batteries. Never
use a candle for light when
checking pilot lights or
fueling equipment such as
a kerosene -heater or
lantern, as the flame could
ignite flammable vapors.
NFPA offers these
additional tips for safer use
of candles in the home:
Always stay in the
room where .candles are.
being burned.
Keep lit candles at
least one foot away from
curtains, mattresses and
anything that can burn.
Keep candles,

matches and lighters away
from children.
Use sturdy candle-
holders that won't tip or
Burn candles on stur-
dy, uncluttered surfaces.
Trim candle wicks to
one-quarter inch before
When lighting can-
dles, keep your hair and
clothing away from- the
Extinguish candles
when they burn to within
two inches of their holder.
Detailed information
about home candle fires
and trends, along with spe-
cific fire safety advice to
prevent candle fires, can
be found in NFPA's Home
Candle Fire report, avail-
able- online at
week.org. The site is also
home to a wide selection
of free fire safety informa-
For safety reasons,
candles should never be
left burning when no one
is in the room.

Schedule Furnace CheckUp Before Winter

All heating systems should be serv-
iced periodically by a qualified contractor
to ensure top. performance, according to
the American Gas Association. Such
maintenance, will help ensure safe and
efficient operation.
Spring and summer months are often
good times to schedule a professional
inspection of fuel-burning. residential-
appliances. Just as car and truck owners
take time to maintain the safe operation of
their vehicles by checking brakes, the
engine and other mechanical parts period--
ically, residents should monitor the safe
operation and use of home, appliances,
AGA says.
Heating contractors should follow the
manufacturer's maintenance guidelines
for each unit in accordance with local
building codes and regulations, AGA says.
The check-up should include:
Inspection of the furnace vent sys-

removal of any leaves, nests, or
other obstructions from inside the chim-..
replacement or cleaning of the air
filter; .
lubrication. of the blower motor;
replacement of blower belts, if necessary;
