CFL Charlie and LED Lucy say...
It’s easy to be energy savvy! Start the new year with energy savings ideas to help you keep energy dollars in your wallet. Save in every room by simply replacing incandescent bulbs with Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) or Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). Increasing your lighting efficiency is one of the easiest ways to decrease your energy bill and you can start easily by replacing one or two bulbs at a time.
LED lighting products use light emitting diodes to produce light very efficiently. Not only more efficient than incandescent bulbs and CFLs, LEDs can be more durable, versatile and longer lasting. LED technology is evolving rapidly resulting in more model and style options as well as becoming more reasonably priced.
MEC Offers Hand Up for “Stand Down”
The Tri-State Veterans Stand Down is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, March 3 and 4, at the Bullhead Area Chamber of Commerce and Bullhead Community Park. Michael Myers, Jerry Ambrose Veterans Council Executive Vice President, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, said the annual event is in its fourth year and offers "A Hand Up" to all Tri-State area vets, especially men and women who are homeless.
Dozens of representatives from area agencies will be in attendance, including those offering housing assistance, employment services, information for VA and Social Security benefits, vaccines for pets, as well as services affecting personal hygiene, including haircuts.
Admission is free and a giant effort is being made to locate homeless veterans who need transportation to the event. Visit www.javc.org for route schedules serving vets in Kingman, Golden Valley, Fort Mohave, Mohave Valley, Golden Shores/Topock, Laughlin and Bullhead City.
