12 The Glenvflle Democrat/ Pathfinder November 3, 1977 Flag football season ends Gilmer County's first season ot flag football in the elementary schools t has come to an end, The five schools met in competition on Thursday, October 27. That occasion marked the fifth week of play and had given each team the opportunity to play the other. In light of this fact. it has been decided to end the season. It had been hoped that at least one set of night games courd be played ,before the end of the season. One series of games under the lights was actually scheduled but was postponed due to bad weather and playing conditions. The games will not be made up this season. t All games were played at the Gilmer County High School Athletic Field in Glenville. In the last week of action, Normantown defeated Glenville, 34-6: Troy topped Tanner, 40.0: and Sand Fork fell to a combination squad made up of other team players by a margin of 260. It is hoped the competition will be of benefit to the youngsters in that it has given them the opportunity not only to compete in actual game conditions, but also to play together as a unit. Coaches for this year's teams have been: Harold Scott. Sand Fork: Larry Barton. Troy: Bob Archer, Tanner: Bill Turner, Glenville: and John Brannon, Normantown.

Straight Answers From Your Power Company One in a series of straight and truthful answers to questions asked by our cus- tomers. Answering to Frlmeee 8yrne, Supervisor, Resi. dential Customer Services. How can I cut down on heating costs? ANSWER: Since heating accounts for more than half of a home's total energy use, you can save a substantial amount of money by cutting down on your heating requirements. First and most important, the need for ade- quate insulation cannot be overemphasized. Heating requirements can be easily reduced by 15 to 30 percent with proper insulation, storm windows and storm doors. Weatherstripping and caulking around doors and windows can further reduce heat loss and help eliminate uncomfortable drafts. Dress for lower temperatures and set the thermostat atthe lowest temperature at which you can be comfortable; 65 degrees or lower is suggested. At night set the thermo- stat back at least five more degrees. To il- lustrate the effects on heating costs: for each degree the temperature is raised above 70, your heating costs increase approxi- mately three percent. With individual room heating systems, you can save energy and dollars by closing off and not heating unused rooms. Additional Tips Close drapes and blinds at night to help retain heal but open them on sunny days to take advantage of the sun. The damper on an unused fireplace should be kept closed to eliminate heat losses up the chimney. Forced air systems should be checked each year to assure efficiency of operation. ' Also, filters should be cleaned or replaced several times during the year. If heating ducts are installed through unheated areas, they should be insulated to minimize heat loss. And forego those long goodbye at the front door.., unless it's with the door closed. As fuel resources grow scarcer and more expensive, it is essential that we use energy wisely and more efficiently.
