Look to your windows for energy savings. Use weather stripping on old windows, and, if you can, add storm windows. In hot climates, add solar  west-facing windows to catch heat. For new units, consider double-glazed panes; in cold climates, “low-e” coatings on glass can help reduce heat loss.

Three local students were among more than 1,500 high school students visiting Washington, D.C. in June for the 2012 Washington Youth Tour. This trip was sponsored by Lake Region Electric Coopera- tive (LREC) along with hundreds of other electric cooperatives across Oklahoma and the country. John Gonzalis of Wagoner, son of John and Seidena Graber; KC Barnes of Porter, son of Kent and Diana Barnes; and Shy Ann Williams of Coweta, daughter of Scott and Susan Williams, joined 73 other Okla- homa students for this great educational event. “LREC is proud to offer these extraordinary stu- dents the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C.,” said Glen Clark, LREC Youth Tour Coordinator. “The Youth Tour provides a great way for our fu- ture leaders to learn about government and electric cooperatives. By investing in these students, we be- lieve we are investing in the future of our communi- ties,” added Clark.


LREC has sponsored the Washington Youth Tour


for more than 40 years. The trip is designed to edu- cate students about our nation’s Capitol, the sac-  cooperative way of business. The students return home with a greater appreciation of our nation’s leaders, a respect for the beauty of Washington, D.C., and friendships that will last a lifetime. “To me the museums were extremely empowering as was the other monuments and seeing such acts of patriotism; one that makes Americans proud,” said

Closing the blinds helped me enjoy a movie.


When the A/C is on, I keep the sun out. It’s nothing huge, but it’s worth the effort. It’s also worth two tickets to a summer blockbuster. Find out what you can do at TogetherWeSave.com.
