TO DO LIST: remove leaves caulk windows insulate attic


It has often been said that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. It is easy to take our right to vote for granted, maybe because there are so many opportunities to exercise that right. There are national, state and local elections for political offi ces. Then there are elections for social or other civic organizations. If you own stock, you are asked to vote in those elections. So it is understandable to see how “election fatigue” can take hold. As we head into the fi nal stage of what has been a divisive


national election, it is a good time to remember that elections don’t have to be about name calling and bitterness. Co-ops can and do play a role in cultivating a civil society where people can practice democracy at the hyper local level. As a member of Harmon Electric Association, you have the right to run for the board of trustees. Even if you choose not to have that level of participation, you should feel empowered to reach out to current board members and candidates. The beauty of belonging to a co-op is every member has a voice, but you must use that voice if you want to be heard on the issues that matter to you. In their document, “A Blueprint for a Cooperative Decade,” the International Cooperative Alliance, a global organization made up of co-ops from over 100 countries, identifi ed member participation as one of the fi ve key ingredients for a co-op to be successful. Voting and being actively involved in the affairs of the co-


to your autumn to-do list Add ‘insulate attic’


As long as you’re blowing leaves and caulking around windows this fall, add one more chore to your to-do list: Add some attic insulation. The time to get your home in shape for heating season is early fall, long before you need to turn the heat on.


Heat rises. So the warm air in your home wafts upward to


op are key ways in which members can participate. Seek out ways that you can help spread the word about the good work your co-op is doing. The cooperative business model is a great one, it fosters engagement and creates strong communities. Over 100 years ago, President Theodore Roosevelt recognized this value when he said, “The Cooperative is the best plan of organization. Under this plan, every business is governed by a board, every person has one vote and only one vote. Everyone gets profi ts based on their use of the co-op. It develops individual responsibility and has a moral as well as a fi nancial value.” Those words are truer today than ever before. Let your voice be heard, and take the time to participate in all the elections.

your attic. Without proper insulation, it winds up outdoors. If your attic doesn’t have enough insulation - or if, over the years, it has come loose - it won’t keep your home’s comfy, heated air from pouring out of the roof. In fact, your home probably loses more heat through the attic than anywhere else. So poke your head up into your attic. Do you see bare


patches on the attic fl oor or ceiling, where insulation is missing? Is insulation drooping in spots? These are defi nite signs that your insulation needs some attention. Insulation can’t do its job if it isn’t touching the surface


it’s meant to insulate. So hire a handyman to reattach and add insulation up there. Or do this yourself; it’s a pretty simple job.


As a bonus, a properly insulated attic also will stop cool,


air-conditioned air from escaping through the roof during the summer. Therefore, a properly insulated attic can provide year round energy savings and year round comfort.
