will be its portion when all the qualifying
food pantries in the United States have sub-
mitted their donation amounts. The more

centage they will receive.

ard City bank (Firstbank or Independent),

Great home improvement projects for spring


STATEPOINT MEDIA
For many Americans the warmer
weather of spring means it’s time to focus
on all those home improvement projects
that would be inconvenient during win-
ter.
Adding an extension, sanding wooden
floors or replacing a roof are a lot eas-
ier when you’re not worried about the
weather and diminished day light. Also,
contractors are less likely to have weath-
er-related delays that blow timelines,
making spring renovations run more
smoothly.
Here are some home improvement
projects you may want to start this sea-
son:
n Replace the Roof: If your roof is
starting to leak or you notice dramatic
increases in heating or cooling bills, it
may be time to replace it. The best time
to do so is when the weather is warm and
dry. Keep in mind the U.S. Department of
Energy recommends light roofing colors,
which will keep down cooling costs and
help reduce global warming. For more
energy-saving home improvement tips,
visit www.energy.gov.
n Check the Perimeter: Inspect your
home’s exterior, making sure to check
your siding. Mold and cracks can be a sign

Get Your Deck Ready For Spring And Summer


STATEPOINT MEDIA
As the days get longer, there’s
nothing like barbequing and en-
tertaining friends on your deck.
But before you pass out those
invitations, make sure your deck
has weathered the winter and is
ready for its seasonal duty.
The abuse a deck surface
takes from the weather, foot
traffic, barbeques, and food and
drink spills can create both sur-
face and structural problems.
“To make your deck last,
clean it thoroughly every one to
two years and re-stain every two
to four years,” says Mark Clem-
ent, host of the radio program
“MyFixitUpLife.” “It also helps if
your deck is made from a natu-
ral, durable wood, such as West-
ern Red Cedar, which holds oil
based finishes for an extended
period of time.”
Here’s how to get your deck
ready for use:
n Clear Out: Clear all fur-
niture and potted plants off the
deck. Then inspect the deck for
dirt and pollen buildup. Sweep
it clean of debris that may have
fallen during winter. For safety’s
sake, make sure there are no
nails sticking up from the deck WORK: Make sure your deck is clean and safe before entertaining. (Courtesy Photo)

The Art of Being


I recently read “The Art of Being” by Dennis Merrit Jones, DD. In this book he talks about 7 “Be-Attitudes”
which I think are worth sharing. His summary is that these are Seven Ways of Being that Will Alter the
Altitude of Your Attitude.
1. Be Present in Every Moment. You are invited to “be” rather than to “do”.
2. Be Willing to Listen to your Intuitive Self and the Guidance it Offers. The primary difference between
the animals and us is that they cannot choose to ignore that guidance, but we can and often do ignore
it. When we ignore it, we often suffer the consequences of that choice. Hearing and listening are two
different functions.
3. Be Open and Transparent in your Communications. Transparency means you have nothing to hide,
nothing to defend, and nothing to fear.
4. Be of Service to Others. A life of wholeness will never be obtained until you offer the whole of yourself
to the whole of life.
5. Be Generous and Grateful. Someone who has developed the attitude of gratitude and generosity is
first and foremost established in an attitude of “I am enough”. There is an inherent intelligence in Nature
that knows there is always enough for everyone.
6. Be Reverent. We begin to awaken to that idea that there is really no place where God’s presence STANWOOD EAGLES AERIE 4360
begins and ends.
7. Be Unconditionally Loving. Unconditional means there are no conditions attached. KITCHEN HOURS & SPECIALS
It is tempting to draw circles around certain people that are more “lovable and 7200 Stanwood Dr. • Stanwood
deserving” of our love than others. Focus on what someone is, not on what they are
doing. 231-823-2911
How we think and how we think about ourselves has a huge impact on our physical
health. Being some or all of these seven attitudes will greatly improve the quality and Monday & Wednesday: Kitchen is closed NEW WINTER
