Power down 30 minutes before bedtime


UPGRADE UPDATE


Fairview has 6 crews currently working on the project, We plan to add 2 more crews by sum- mer. This part of the project could be complete by the end of July.


Lacy and Hennessey projects are underway and being completed by 7 crews. They should be complete by the end of August 2015.


Kingfisher has 6 and sometimes 7 crews cur- rently working on project. Some of these crews will be moving to Okeene in March. Kingfisher project will be working all of 2015.


Your smartphone, tablet, laptop or TV could be keeping you awake at night


A new study from Harvard Medical School says the lights that illuminate the screens of those devices could be distorting your body’s natural rhythms and stimulating your brain so much that it makes it harder for you to fall asleep and stay asleep.


The result: Many people are not getting enough sleep, which has increased their use of caffeine—which also prevents good, quality sleep.


Another study reveals that 30 percent of all working adults get fewer than six hours of sleep a night. Even children aren’t getting enough sleep because they’re playing video games or watching TV too close to bedtime.


The solutions: • Power the TV, phone and tablet down 30 min- utes before you get into bed. •


Make your bedroom a gadget-free zone so you won’t be tempted to check your email one last time before your head hits the pillow. • Remove the TVs from your kids’ bedrooms so they can’t sneak a peek that might prevent them from getting the rest they need for a good tomorrow.


Dover has 2 crews on it. Approximately 43 miles to complete that project. Hope to have that project completed by end of this summer.


Canton will start in August with some of the Fairview crews starting after they complete the Fairview project. This is a smaller project with just over 50 miles and they will be on it until the first quarter of 2016.


Marshall should open up by the fourth quarter of 2016. Staking will start in late spring or early summer.


Watonga/Calumet/Concho project will start staking by fourth quarter of this year. Hope to start construction in early 2016. Will be moving crews in from the Kingfisher and Marshall proj- ects. Hope to have this project complete by the end of 2016.


Reed Emerson, Sr. V.P. of Engineering and Op- erations, reported that we have completed 242 miles out of the total 1249. “We had several crews leave us to work winter storms this past month. We should get some back shortly, and return to a full staff of contractors. If the weather cooperates, and we don’t have any more ice and sleet storms, we should be right on sched- ule,” said Emerson.
