ENERGY EFFICIENCY Tip of the Month


Photos from May 1945 show Choctaw Electric member Lee Bennett, above, who served in the U.S. armed forces during WWII. Bennett directed traffic across the Ernie Pyle pontoon bridge across the Rhine River (photo right), which connected the towns of Neuss and Dusseldorf, Germany. The bridge served as a main supply line for U.S. troops.

Is email our downfall?


A study conducted by Doc-mail, an online stationer, found that the average adult (out of 2,000 participants) goes about 40 days without writing anything by hand, and one in three haven’t written a note on paper for more than six months. In addition, 50 percent feel that their handwriting has significantly declined, with one in seven being “ashamed” of their writing. Spelling may be another casualty, with four in 10 of the participants reporting that they depend on autocorrect for the right words. Many writers may find themselves helpless without a keyboard in the near future.
