percent of possible sunshine and triple-digit summer temperatures, so the figures may or may not apply where you live. The basic idea will be correct for any climate.
Heat or cooling is also lost or gained, of course, through the home’s building materials. Insulation will help and sealing cracks around doors md windows is a must There always will be some conduction through the building, no matter how good the insulation and sealing.
Properly placed plants reduce differences in inner-outer wall surfaces. And directing the air flow around a home contributes to energy conservation and comfort of living, too.
Plant windbreaks perpendicular to the wind direction to reduce the wind’s effect. Channel cooling breezes by creating an opening at appropriate places in the windbreak planting. Be sure you know the direction of your winter winds, usually from the north or west.
Positioning of landscape plants to save energy requires some knowledge of the sun’s movement. While the sun always travels on an east-west arc during daytime, the arc varies as the sun moves from the southern sky in winter to the northern sky in summer On June 22, the summer solstice, the sun reaches its highest point overhead. The sun is lowest on Dec. 22, the winter solstice. So, as the day lengths and seasons change, so do the shadow directions and lengths.
Tables have been calculated for each latitude in the United States and should be available from the area’s Cooperative Extension Service office or land-grant university.
One often-overlooked strategy is to shade the outside air conditioner unit. WeU-placed small trees or evergreen shrubs will aid the cooling capacity. Don’t Mock the discharge area.

PHOENIX (AP) — Take a close look at your landscaping if your home’s energy bills seem high. Careful selection and positioning of plants will control heat loss or gain and their costs.
Think of the cooling comfort of a shady spot on a hot day. Homes can be similarly cooled by planting trees to strategically shade them from the direction of die most intense sunlight.
Conversely, in winter, the sun will supply free solar heaL
Deciduous trees are ideal for energy landscaping since they provide shade during the warmest months, but allow the sun to reach and warm the house in Wimer, anting heating costs.
The Salt River Project, a major supplier of electricity in Arizona, has advised customers that three trees planted on the west and southwest sides of a home can save $50 to $100 in summer-cooling costs when they mature.
An earlier study by University of Arizona horticulturists William Miller and Charles Sacamano found:
— Exterior shading is seven times more effective than interior cooling.
— A wall in full sun transmits three times the heat of a shaded wall; an unshaded roof adds twice the heat of a shaded one to the interior of a structure.
— A dense tree canopy will screen out at least 80 percent of the full-sun radiation that falls on a human being, outdoor living area or building. Miller and Sacamano estimated such screening can reduce maximum high temperatures inside a typical house by 20 percent

For me it officially becomes summer when the Fourth of July is here and you see those fireworks!
The Sophienburg Museum and Archives is the sponsor of the morning parade — a tradition that has been a part of our community for many years. We want everyone to help in making it the “Big” deal that it used to be in the early 1900s. The parade has everything from the clowns to cars to the firemen and their pump races. We found two pictures of past parades that need your help in identifying.
(AA-97-045) is a very patriotic family that IS the American Flag. Who are these people? They should have won a prize for being so clever in their costume! Maybe they could recreate this picture in our parade this year! If you know part of this flag, give us a call!
(AA-97-046) is five pretty ladies in erne pretty car. We would like to have the name of the three ladies on the back of the car with umbrellas and the driver and passenger too!
* Hopefully they are planning to drive this fine car in our parade this year!
(AA-97-043), the picture of our handsome groom and pretty bride from last week, was named! We thank Mrs. Willie Spicer for calling
