Would You Believe
If you’re like the average American, you will eat approximately 22 pounds of tomatoes this year. And half of that amount will come in the form of ketchup and tomato sauce. ••• Those who study such things say that a crack in breaking glass travels at more than 3,000 miles per hour. ••• This may not come as a surprise, but studies of university students show that those who major in education drink the least liquor, while business administration majors drink the most. ••• Add to the list of surprising items you can buy in vending machines in Japan: eggs, batteries, umbrellas, soccer balls, live bait, French fries and ties. ••• What do the words “uncopyrightable” and “dermatoglyphics” have in common? Dermatoglyphics is the study of skin patterns such as fingerprints, so the meanings have nothing to do with each other. These two are the longest words in the English language that have no repeating letters. ••• You might be surprised to learn that a taste bud lives only about 10 days. ••• If you’re like 80 percent of the women who responded to a 2006 survey, you never wear about one-quarter of the clothes you own. ••• The town of Waco, Texas, has an entire museum dedicated to the popular soda Dr Pepper.

Dollars & $ense
By David Uffington If you’re having trouble keeping up with your mortgage payments, the Home Affordable Modification Program might be able to help. HAMP was designed to help millions of homeowners keep their homes by lowering the mortgage payment. Billions of dollars were earmarked and nearly 40 “mortgage servicer” companies, or middlemen, signed up to participate. They cover the vast majority of mortgage loans in the country. Here are some of the requirements: • Your existing loan must have been taken out prior to January 1, 2009. • You could be eligible for loan modification if your mortgage payment (including principal, interest, taxes, insurance and homeowner's association dues) is more than 31 percent of your gross monthly income. • You must live in the home as your principal place of residence. • You must pass a hardship test and indicate why you need help. You’ll next need to complete a Trial Modification: prove that you can make the new reduced payments for three months. If you’re in default or bankruptcy, or even foreclosure, you likely can be helped, as the foreclosure will be suspended during the trial modification. For more information, go online to the Making Home Affordable site [makinghomeaffordable.gov]. It also has a list of mortgage servicers for the Home Affordable Modification program. Check to see if yours is on the list. The process can be irritating and long, but in the end you could keep your house and enjoy a stable interest rate.

Isn’t it your turn to experience the pure enjoyment, complete relaxation, and endless hours of recreation that comes with owning a Viking Pool?

The Green Future of Hard Water Treatment
looks like this. Here are 14 key reasons your home needs it.
GMX is less expensive to purchase, install and operate than namebrand softeners… and we’ve been installing systems in your neighborhood for 15 years! Here’s why:
• • • • • • • Uses NO Sodium Salt Uses NO Potassium Salt Wastes NO Water Has NO Tanks Uses NO Electricity Requires NO Maintenance NO Ongoing Operating Expenses • • • • • • • Increases Your Home’s Value Protects Plumbing Fixtures Boosts/Sustains Water Heater Efficiency Conserves Water Improves Skin & Hair Condition Safe for Plants Safe for People with High Blood Pressure

The Cornelys live in an area of Rio Rancho with exceptionally hard water. Before installing their GMX system, it was necessary to replace the kitchen faucet because of calcium buildup, even though their home is less than 10 years old. “We knew we needed a water-softening system,” recalls David. “Corine showed me the GMX ad in New Mexico MarketPlace and we decided to find out more.” With two pet dogs, Winston and Dude, plus numerous flowers, the Cornelys were especially keen to keep salt and potassium out of their water (a key selling feature of the maintenance-free GMX system). Both Corine and David work at Los Alamos National Lab, so they studied the data on magnetic water softening before buying. Today, “…there’s no calcium buildup around our spigots, just a fine powder, which we simply wipe away,” says Corine.

More Satisfied GMX Customers!
David and Corine Cornely of Rio Rancho

Does Your Water Heater Make Rumbling and Popping Noises? Hard Water May Be The Reason.

GMX systems use a high-intensity magnetic field to induce molecular changes in your water. You get ALL the same benefits as softening the water without ANY of the hassles. GMX technology is long proven and has been the product of choice by savvy New Mexico consumers for 15 years. Every customer is protected by a 90-Day Money Back Guarantee and a Lifetime Warranty.

Fall Planting?
So what is the scoop about fall planting? Many of my clients think that spring planting is the only way to go; but that is not necessarily the whole story. has some real advantages also. One misconception is late season planting runs the risk of plants freezing. There are a few plants that need longer to acclimate to cold conditions, but most plants do very well when planted in the fall. How do I know? Simple; we look at our replacement schedule and it’s clear we lose more plants in the spring than in the fall. One problem with fall planting is that some perennials, as they come from the grower, may look a little ragged. Not to worry, you are going to cut them back in another 60 days anyway. To avoid early season freezes, damaging winds and long waits to get your plants installed –Think FALL PLANTING and you may even save a little money.

Southwest Gardener
By Curtis Smith Q: Please tell me how to transplant runners from a New Mexico locust. — Anna T., Cedar Crest A: Gardening terminology can be confusing. I think you are asking about transplanting “suckers” produced by roots. The source of the new growth makes a difference in success when trying to start a new plant. The botanical definition of a sucker (what I think you are calling a “runner”) is a sprout from an adventitious bud produced on a root. These new sprouts will form their own root system, but they are connected to an existing root. Some people, when referring to “suckers” mean sprouts that form from the base of a stem (properly called “offsets”). In some plants, these offsets can be induced to form roots, but may not have roots initially. Other people, when referring to suckers, are actually talking about watersprouts — rapidly growing shoots produced from branches. These are more difficult to induce to form new roots and grow new plants. If you are referring to the true suckers, produced from buds on roots, then it is a fairly easy matter to transplant the new plant. If you are referring to a sprout from the base of the

Once again, Albuquerque shows us that this is a unique place to live. In most of the country “spring is king” with mild and somewhat predictable weather. As you know, just when we think spring has sprung, we get a late season freeze that challenges that attitude. I specifically remember, a couple of years back, the last freezing nighttime temperature being followed two or three weeks later by daytime temps in the low 90s! Wow! Spring lasted three whole weeks! The problem with this is that early season plants have very tender new growth and a later season freeze can burn all that beautiful new growth. Add to that spring winds ranging up to 60 MPH and your new spring plants can look like they were in a war zone. Don’t get me wrong, spring can be a good time to plant. But fall

trunk, you may be able to cut it from the parent, treat it with rooting hormone, and induce rooting. The water sprout will also require rooting hormone to induce rooting. Suckers can be dug up with some of the “mother” root and transplanted in the fall as the tree becomes dormant, or in the late winter before growth begins (once the soil has thawed and digging is possible). Smaller suckers may transplant most easily, but because they have less food reserves in their stems, should be transplanted in the late winter. Larger (but not too large) suckers can be transplanted in the fall. With greater stored food in their stems, they can begin some root growth in the fall. New Mexico locust trees are fairly tolerant and should transplant easily. Curtis W. Smith, Ph.D., is an Extension Horticulture Specialist with New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service.

Antique Answers
By Larry Cox Q: I have a complete American Flyer train set, still in its original boxes and containers. It was purchased for my son about 48 years ago when he was a youngster. What is the value of this set, and where can I sell it? It is the M-4304 by A.C. Gilbert and Company. — Eleanor, Albuquerque, N.M. A: Current values for American Flyer model trains are listed in O’Brien’s Collecting Toy Trains: Identification & Price Guide, edited by David Doyle (Krause, $29.95). This excellent reference features 1,200 illustrations in full color and updated pricing for more than 6,000 items, including locomotives, rolling stock and accessories. After you determine the value of your train set, I recommend that you market it on eBay. Q: I found a ceramic pitcher in my late brother’s belongings and wonder if you can tell me anything about it. It is marked “Santucci Deruta.” — Joan, Rio Rancho, N.M. A: Your pottery was made in Italy, probably in about 1980. It is not all that collectible. A quick check of eBay revealed that pieces of Santucci Deruta pottery were available in the $10 to $15 range. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to letters.kfws @hearstsc.com.

Books of Note
Reviewed By Ealish Waddell “Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven” by Susan Jane Gilman (Grand Central Publishing, $23.99) A lot of travelers claim they want to experience the real world when they travel, eschewing sightseeing tours and luxury hotel rooms in an effort to live like a native. But, not everyone is cut out for this type of adventure. Susan Gilman learned this the hard way when she and her friend Claire spontaneously decide to circumnavigate the globe together. Fresh out of college and flushed with youth, the two Americans throw themselves into the decidedly foreign culture of the People’s Republic of China. Traveling to Maoist China in Cold War 1986 is no lark. The country’s bureaucracy is labyrinthine, requiring pages of paperwork and days of waiting just to buy train tickets. The extreme poverty, choking pollution and unrelenting dreariness of the industrial cities shock the girls, and the language barrier complicates everything from ordering a dinner that isn’t still alive to finding a doctor in the midst of a medical emergency. They’re definitely in over their heads, but for a while it seems like they’re getting the hang of it. However, as tensions keep piling up, Claire retreats into moodiness and paranoia, while Susan grows depressed and ill. Then something truly disturbing happens to Claire, and it is instantly crystal clear how very far away from home they are.

Shoe Fitters: Comfortable, Fashion-Forward Shoes
By Lisa Rhoads© Stop for a second and look down at your feet? When was the last time you thought about them? They are the foundation that you stand, walk and run on, and they make up 25 percent of the bones in your body. But how well do you treat them? Now is the time to look at your feet with a newfound respect and treat them right. Take a trip to Shoe Fitters — a shoe store that focuses on your needs by providing the oldfashioned sit-and-fit service, and finding your feet comfortable, yet fashion-forward, shoes. Located in Cottonwood and Coronado Malls, amongst the franchises and large department stores, Shoe Fitters is one of the few locally owned and operated businesses. Shoe Fitters is nestled between JC Penney and Macy’s in their Cottonwood Mall location, and across from Sears on the upper level in Coronado Mall. Owner Tom Piersol and coowner Greg Stovell opened Shoe Fitters in October 1998,

• • • •

and created a shoe destination in which comfort and fashion go together. Tom, who learned the shoe business in Texas, thinks good shoes are the most crucial element of an outfit. “You want to think of your shoes as an investment,” Tom says. “Good shoes support your feet and prevent injuries.” Don’t think you have a foot problem? You may not realize it, but existing knee problems, hip or lower back problems, or shoulder and neck problems may be due to cheap and ill fitting shoes. While good shoes seem expensive, you are actually saving money in the long run because good shoes last much longer than cheap shoes, and will prevent any injuries or pain. Moreover, Shoe Fitters guarantees you will receive the best service and prices. Shoe Fitters’ friendly and knowledgeable staff is extensively trained in correctly measuring your feet in order to ensure you are getting the right size. If you want additional comfort, Shoe Fitters also has an array of choices for shoe inserts. In order to find the insert best suited for Business Profile you, Shoe Fitters Shoe Fitters offers free computerCottonwood Mall (between Macy’s ized foot analysis. and JC Penney), (505) 792-3055 You simply take off Coronado Mall (across from Sears), your shoes and stand (505) 884-0005 on a black pad, and in www.theshoeplanet.com a few moments the

to find the perfect shoe for their lifestyles. Shoe Fitters also stocks out-of-the-ordinary shoes such as the “anti-shoe” manufactured by MBT. “The ‘anti-shoe’ is the first footwear of its kind that can help with knee and back problems, relieve tension in neck and joints, and tone the buttocks and thighs,” Tom says. Shoe Fitters has ladies’ sizes from 5 to 12, and men’s from 7 to 12, and shoes available in narrow, medium and wide, so you are sure to find the perfect fit. Their sizes and widths are always stocked; however, once you find that perfect shoe, you had better snatch it up. “The shoe industry has changed,” says Tom. “Because of the economy, companies don’t have warehouses full of shoes waiting to be ordered.” If it is a popular shoe, you won’t have the chance to purchase a replacement because the company simply stops making them, moving on to the latest style. Shoe Fitters guarantees your satisfaction. You will never feel as though you are stuck with a shoe that doesn’t feel right. As for their prices, they are always priced as good, if not better, than their competition. Shoe Fitters is also making room for new fall inventory, so be sure to visit them today and check out their great sales on summer shoes. Give Shoe Fitters a call at 792-3055 if you want to visit them in Cottonwood or 8840005 if you go to Coronado. You can also check out their informative website at www.theshoeplanet.com from the comfort of your home. See for yourself that you don’t need to sacrifice comfort for fashion, or forsake fashion for comfort. In Shoe Fitters, you can have both. *** Quotables “History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon.” — Napoleon Bonaparte

You don’t need harmful or expensive chemical products to keep your home clean. A few eco-friendly and economical items are all you need to make your living spaces sparkle. Baking soda: Baking soda is nontoxic, earth-friendly, multi-purpose and cheap. • Sprinkle onto carpets and rugs, let sit for 15 minutes then vacuum away dirt and odors. • Add 1/4 cup to a load of laundry to help remove grease and freshen clothes. • Sprinkle in the sink and bathtub, make a paste with water and use as a safe, gentle scouring powder. • Spill some grease during cooking? Put a bit of baking soda on the mess, rub with a dry cloth and rinse with water. Vinegar: White distilled vinegar kills mold, bacteria and germs and is a great way to avoid using harsh chemicals. • Before you step in the shower and turn on the water, spray the shower door with fullstrength vinegar to help ensure hard water deposits won’t stick to glass. • Clean grout by letting fullstrength vinegar sit on it for a few minutes then scrub with an old toothbrush. • Clean your drain safely using 1 cup baking soda and 1 cup hot vinegar. Pour both down the drain, let foam for five minutes and flush with hot water. • Clean your microwave by bringing 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup water to a boil inside. Anything inside will just wipe clean. Lemons: The acid in lemon juice makes a great (and good smelling) bleach alternative. • Remove stains from a countertop by allowing lemon juice to sit on the stain for five minutes. Scrub with baking soda and watch the stain disappear. • Add a few lemon peels to the garbage disposal and run it with hot water for the freshest smelling drain you’ve ever had.

Tomatoes are low in calories and a good source of vitamins C, A and K. They’re also a very good source of molybdenum, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, chromium and vitamin B1. Try using tomatoes as the “dish” for salads like this delicious seafood salad. When you scoop out the tomato pulp, place it in a plastic bag and use it in tomato soup or pasta sauce. The tomato pulp with keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Tomatoes Stuffed with Seafood Salad 1 pound peeled, cooked shrimp (21 to 25 per pound; thawed if frozen), tails removed, chopped; or 1 pound imitation crab meat, chopped 1 stalk celery, finely diced 1/4 cup minced fresh basil 10 Kalamata olives, pitted and finely chopped (optional) 1/2 small purple onion, minced 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/4 teaspoon sugar 4 large ripe tomatoes, cored In a small bowl, combine the shrimp or crab, celery, basil, olives, onion, mayonnaise, vinegar, salt, pepper and sugar together until well-combined. Using a melon baller or a small spoon, carefully hollow out the inside of each tomato, reserving the tomato pulp. Fill each tomato with a 1/2 cup of the seafood salad. Cover and refrigerate for up to one day.

Pet Corner
Many pet owners assume that they will outlive their beloved pets, but that isn’t always the case. Unfortunately, when animals get left behind, they sometimes wind up in a local humane society where they could be euthanized. A pet trust ensures the animal will continue to receive care and housing even after the death of the pet’s human companion. Pet trusts can vary according to a person’s needs, and most pet trust laws allow people to will a certain amount of money toward the care of their pet after they are gone. Missouri was one of the first states to have pet trusts. Gregory Dennis, an attorney in Missouri, says that the state has allowed pet trusts in some form since 1973. Dennis advises that veterinarians should be made aware of trusts when they treat an animal. If a pet is covered by a trust, it’s the trust that will likely be paying the bill and the trust also may stipulate what kind of veterinary care the animal should receive. Dennis also notes that bequests that haven’t been carefully drafted and, for example, leave exorbitant sums of money to a dog or cat, could be subject to legal challenges. People may argue that excessively large trusts are a sign a person was not mentally competent at the time the trust was drafted. “Many state’s pet trust laws include provisions that allows the courts to reduce a pet trust to a reasonable amount if it’s excessive,” says Linscott R. Hansen, an Illinois attorney who helped draft that state’s pet trust law, which passed in 2004. “I advise people interested in setting up a pet trust to put into a trust just what the pet needs, and that’s enough.”

Here’s A Tip
by JoAnn Derson To make pounding nails into wood easier, keep a bar of soap handy. Rake the nails though the soap before putting them in. • • • When painting, coat the tops of your hands with petroleum jelly. A light coat will do. Then, when you are finished, the specks of paint from the roller will slide right off. The bonus is, your hands will feel soft as well. • • • If you’re tired of throwing away hard marshmallows, store them in the freezer, bag and all. Whenever you want to use any, take as many as you want, and they will be soft in a few seconds. • • • Remove leftover glue from price stickers by buffing it with a pinch of peanut butter and a paper towel. Be sure to use this tip on hard, nonporous surfaces only. • • • If you subscribe to a lot of magazines, you know that they can pile up quickly. One way to get rid of ones you’ve read is to recycle, but how about checking with local senior centers or laundries to see if they might like to have them? • • • Go Green Tip: Looking to upgrade your portfolio? Why not consider adding green funds or socially responsible funds to your mix of investments? These are funds that invest in environmental or socially responsible industries or companies. Talk with your financial adviser about what options are available to you. • • • If you need to dampen clothing while ironing, try misting your ironing board instead of the garment itself. You use the same amount of water, but avoid getting water spots on the material.

Green leaves just don’t get the attention they deserve. Usually, we “ooh” and “aah” in the fall at the emerging splashy colors of crimson and golden leaves. But there is infinite variety in the green and the gray of leaves on trees, vegetable plants and bushes. To preserve their beauty, try this zany method to print them on fabric. First, collect the fresh green leaves. Ferns from an indoor floral bouquet also work well. Then, decide what you would like to print, such as a plain white or cream-colored cotton fabric T-shirt, an apron, potholder or library book bag. Cover a hard, flat surface such as a picnic table or wooden breadboard with paper bags. Set the fabric to be printed on top. If using a T-shirt or tote bag, place a sheet of wax paper or cardboard inside the shirt or bag. Arrange a leaf or fern on the fabric (secure it in place with small pieces of masking tape, if you wish), and cover with a sheet of wax paper. Hammer over the wax-paper-covered leaf until its color has been absorbed into the fabric. Hit every part of the leaf to release the natural pigments. Remove the leaf or fern and wax paper to reveal the natural image. Colors vary in intensity, so you may wish to test several varieties on a piece of scrap fabric first. Try it with a few flowers, too, for an added splash of color. Label each print with the name of the tree, plant or flower using a permanent marker. Note: The natural pigments may eventually fade. Wash fabric in cold water.

Get a Grip: New Technology, Superlative Resurfacing
By Kelly Koepke© Over the last decade, Get A Grip has made a name for itself through high-quality products and applications, saving homeowners and apartment owners thousands of dollars in remodeling costs and countless hours of time. This family owned refinishing and resurfacing company offers beautiful kitchen and bathroom surfaces at a much lower cost than granite or other replacements. “From the beginning, we wanted to offer customers the smartest solution for making surfaces elegant,” says Sharon Dillard, president of Albuquerque-headquartered Get A Grip, Inc. “Our resurfacing products just make sense for the long run, especially in our soft real estate market. Homeowners and sellers need to find inexpensive yet highly effective ways to update and beautify their homes. The application of our product takes very little time because it is applied with a single, proven technique inspired by a unique patent. Most surfaces are ready for use within 24 hours of our application.”

that it has the best products and the best processes with a fiveyear guarantee on all its countertop work. So what else does Get A Grip resurface in addition to kitchen and bathroom countertops? Practically any surface in the home: showers, tubs and tile. Get A Grip refinishes bathtubs and surrounds so they look like new in just a few hours, and at a cost saving of up to 80 percent over conventional replacement, Sharon says. “Even better, the tub can be used the very next day.” Also, they have several revolutionary fiberglass repair systems that can repair and transform fiberglass tubs and showers to look like new. Get A Grip has won several awards from the Home Builders Association of Central New Mexico. New Mexico Business Weekly has listed them as one of the top 13 small businesses in the state. The company also has a triple A rating from the Better Business Bureau, the highest rating that can be earned. The company’s been aggressively expanding throughout the U.S., and now has franchises and dealers in 36 locations in 16 states. This expansion resulted in the company making its debut ranking of #467 on the Entrepreneur®’s Franchise 500® list of franchise companies in the United States and Canada. That means Get A Grip is now fifth in its industry category of surface refinishing/ restoration!

Keeping Fit
The knee is the largest and most complex joint in the body, and is vital for movement. Approximately 19 million visits are made to the orthopaedic surgeon each year for knee problems, with bone and joint problems among the most disabling and costly medical issues in the United States. Arthritis is often the first illness suspected, but knees are vulnerable to many different diseases and conditions, such as torn ligaments or bone fractures. Often with orthopaedic conditions and injuries, there is more than one form of treatment. To make sure your treatment matches your needs, your doctor will consider several things, including age, activity level and general health. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) recently launched a web portal to serve as a one-stop authority on knee health. The site, www.saveyourknees.org, is comprehensive, interactive and full of multimedia information focused on your knees. Visitors can learn how to keep knees healthy, perform strengthening exercises, avoid common knee problems and prevent knee injuries, and learn about possible treatments, including both nonsurgical and surgical options. There is even a Kids Corner, where kids can build a skeleton, fill in a crossword puzzle and learn about the knees in a fun and different way. The site includes such helpful information as: • Details on anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries; • Statistics on knee replacement procedures; • Questions to ask your doctor when you go in for treatment; • Injury prevention tips; • A safety guide for young athletes; and • Tips on staying healthy and making sure your knees serve you well at every age.

Get Champion Windows and Up To $1,500 Tax Credit
By Steve Sawicki© Don Swope, division manager for Champion Windows, smiles when he recalls a story that one of his customers shared not long ago. The woman had tried to save a few dollars on replacement windows by going with a poorquality brand, but then had to buy new windows far sooner than she would have liked. “She told me that her mother finally told her, ‘Quit fooling around and just get Champion out here,’” Swope says. These days, especially with the passage of federal tax incentives to boost the energy efficiency of one’s home, more and more people are heeding that advice. This year and next, homeowners are eligible for a tax credit of up to $1,500 for a variety of improvements, including the installation of windows and doors that meet elevated government standards. Given that most of Champion’s products already exceeded those requirements, many customers see the company as the obvious choice when they decide to upgrade their homes. “Probably 90 percent of the customers coming in or calling us right now have heard about the energy tax credit,” Swope says. “Some of them already needed to replace their windows. So, they’re thinking, ‘Wow, if we can get the government to help with this, let’s do it.’”

manufactures, installs and services vinyl replacement windows, patio rooms, entry doors, and vinyl siding. Among its 70plus branches across the country, the company has been an Albuquerque mainstay for more than a decade.

keep damaging UV rays to a minimum. Champion windows come with heavy-duty wool weatherstripping on all the edges. And dense argon gas is injected between the double panes, reducing the heat-cold transfer, as well as decreasing outside noise. As a result, Champion’s customers tend to see a reduction in their utility bills, in some cases by as much as 30 to 40 percent, Swope says. Not to mention increased value of their home should they decide to sell. No wonder Champion has won praise from so many prestigious organizations. This year, for example, the company earned certification by Green Seal, an independent non-profit that sets environmental standards for products and businesses. In 2008, Door and Window magazine gave Champion its Crystal

Achievement Award for innovative practices in manufacturing. In 2004, the company won a Better Business Bureau Torch Award for marketplace ethics. And its vinyl replacement windows and patio rooms have the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. All that is much welcomed, says Swope, but the affirmation he likes best comes from those his company serves. Indeed, he and his staff have garnered plenty of compliments from happy customers. The manager tells of one woman living adjacent to noisy Interstate 25 who called him shortly after her new windows were installed. “She said, ‘That’s the first time in 28 years I’m not hearing the highway,’” he says. A week later the woman reported that she no longer needed her air-conditioner on sweltering days — that the

Seniors who use walkers or canes have a much greater risk of injury from falls than those who don’t use them. A survey of hospital emergency-room records offers some statistics: • Injuries involving walkers accounted for 87 percent of falls. Canes accounted for 12 percent. • Women had more injuries than men, and walkers were the worst culprits: 78 percent of women were injured in walker falls, versus 22 percent of the men. • A third of those injured in a fall ended up being admitted to the hospital. • Sixty percent of the falls happened at home, and there were five times more falls from tripping than from slipping. Here are some steps to reduce the risk of a fall, even if you don’t use a walker or a cane: • Get your eyes checked at least once a year. As our vision changes, what once worked in our homes might be dangerous to us now. • Don’t let newspapers or books stack up by the reading chair. Keep things off the floor and keep paths cleared of anything you have to step around or over. • Use double-sided tape to hold down scatter rugs. (Best bet: Get rid of them.) • Increase the lighting in your home, and turn on a lamp at the wall switch by the door instead of walking into a dark room. • Wear sturdy shoes. Slippers can be slippery. One big problem with falls is that the first one sets up a fear of falling again. That in turn may limit mobility and exercise, which in turn decreases our flexibility and strength — which can cause even more falls. The best bet, then, is to avoid that first fall. If you need help clearing out your space or making changes, ask for it.

Andy Lee General Contractor: Honesty and Integrity
By Robin Martinez© Albert Einstein is credited with saying, “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” And while many have been affected by the current economic situation, it is not without opportunity for area homeowners. According to Andy Lee, owner of Andy Lee General Contractor LLC, prices for labor and materials have fallen 10 to 20 percent, making today an ideal time to tackle some of those home improvement projects you’ve been considering. Andy and his crew are full service contractors providing remodeling services on residences and commercial buildings. “As always, kitchens and baths are popular home improvement projects,” notes Andy, “and usually offer the best return on investment when the real estate market begins its next upward trend.” In addition to complete remodel services, Andy Lee also offers homeowners access to a handyman at an hourly rate. If you’re considering small projects, such as installing bookshelves or attaching baseboards and wood trim, you don’t have to go through the trouble of requesting a formal bid for the project. “When a contractor completes a bid, he must factor in all the unexpected things that may happen,” says Andy. Time delays, construction issues, potential materials increases or availability, employee scheduling — all these and more are considered when preparing a bid. Yet when using an hourlyrate handyman, the unexpecteds are removed and customers simply pay for the work that’s done. Andy Lee’s discounted hourly rate of $47.50 will continue through September so you can have a professional carpenter well-equipped with the tools and the knowledge to help with your small projects. Besides remodeling, replacement windows are another wise investment in your home — not only in terms of benefiting

Avoid Rooftop Heating/Cooling Hassles, Call Scott Ruch
By Robin Martinez© It’s September and a wellknown fall trek is approaching quickly for many area residents. Is it a trip to the State Fair? Perhaps Balloon Fiesta? Or a drive to the mountains to view the changing leaf colors? No, no and no. One journey made by many local homeowners is the annual trek up the ladder to the roof to winterize swamp coolers. Draining water, washing the system components, checking for necessary repairs and covering the unit to protect against winter weather are all components of this annual fall ritual. Why not skip the journey this year and let Scott Ruch Heating, Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electrical Inc. handle the annual service of your heating and cooling system? For over 25 years, Business Profile Scott has provided • Scott Ruch Inc. skills and craftsman• 505-299-8103 ship to New Mexico • www.scottruch.com residences and businesses for all of their heating, air conditioning and plumbing needs. As a premier service and replacement company, Scott Ruch Inc. specializes in all makes and models of heating, cooling, plumbing and electrical equipment, offering everything from basic repair services to complete replacements of entire heating and cooling systems, and installation of Energy Star equipment. Scott observes that, with the current real estate market, homeowners are realizing the financial wisdom of investing in their own homes. Not only will improvements make their homes more comfortable for years to come, some projects can also help homeowners save on energy expenses — a valid concern while waiting out the current economic uncertainties. And though the short-term economic future is unknown, one thing is certain, Scott says. “Homeowners will see higher natural gas bills this year. PNM recently approved a substantial rate increase — numbers homeowners will surely notice with the arrival of cooler temperatures and increased gas consumption.” Seasonal maintenance will help increase the efficiency of a home’s existing heating or cooling systems, helping to reduce fuel costs. Scott recommends a system’s check twice a year, advice echoed by all major manufacturers of heating and cooling equipment. Scott Ruch Inc. takes these recommendations to heart, even establishing a club membership program for their customers. Homeowners who take advantage of this membership benefit from a system cleaning and check up twice a year, an additional 20 percent discount on all other service work (labor and parts), other discounted services and products, and priority status on service calls. As a club member, homeowners jump to the front of the line when needing service or repair on their existing systems. “Our first priority is to get your system up and running,” Scott says. He and his team have the diagnostic tools and abilities to determine where repairs are needed and whether repair or replacement is the best option for the homeowner. Should a homeowner choose a system replacement, Scott encourages his clients to invest in quality equipment. Since Ruch is not limited to one specific line of equipment, he is able to help homeowners determine the best equipment

Soon she called yet again. “This time she had her mail-carrier in the house, to experience the change,” says Swope. “Not long after that, that mail lady bought a patio door from us.” Champion’s customers often refer family and friends. And since many people replace windows in stages, the company gets plenty of repeat buyers, too. “We have a lot of customers who have maybe 15 or 20 windows in their house and say they can only afford four

windows right now,” says Swope. “They come in a few months later and they want to do more. We’ve got one customer who’s been doing one window every few months.” As a factory-direct company, Champion can satisfy an individual like that without missing a beat. Try getting that from a business that orders from a separate manufacturer. “They won’t even do an order for less than a certain amount,” Swope says. “But I’ve got a truck from Champion coming in here every couple of weeks, sometimes every week. So if it’s one window, three windows, or ten, it makes no difference.” Champion’s Albuquerque showroom is located at 4580 Lincoln Rd. NE. Hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The telephone number is 889-3200 and the website is www.championfactorydirect.com.
